If only some wise political sage could have spoken to the Democratic Party at the beginning of the year and let them know that by the time the year was halfway through that they would have one of their worst months in terms of political donations. If only someone had been smart enough to predict that their current strategies, vitriol, obstructionism and hateful nonsense was not a path back to power. If only someone with foresight and common sense had been able to interpret what the American people were saying to Democrats… oh wait I did all that.
I cannot go a week without bumping into some hipster doofus poetizing about the glories of socialism on the internet. Of course, when you point out that the iPhone, Twitter and Internet that they are using to try to spread the gospels of socialism are all the byproducts of capitalism it usually triggers an ad hominem attack for challenging their world view with simple logic. Now as we see the numbers of millennials creep north of 50% that do not support capitalism, I only hope that that Generation Z is as Conservative as predicted and us middle age free thinkers hang on long enough to allow them to reach voting age.
As I wrote about earlier in “Words with Enemies – Leftist Edition”, the political Left has pursued their tyrannical approach at suppressing Conservative speech with reckless abandon in the past few months. They have used violence, character attacks and legal action in the name of silencing speech with which they disagree. The most insidious technique in their arsenal of thought policing is and has always been the language of political correctness and the arguments for reasonable accommodations…
It was barely a week ago that CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and just about every other left leaning media outlet was on the warpath over a silly wrestling joke meme that that President had tweeted. In all seriousness, these media outlets let us know in no uncertain terms that this type of behavior was going to lead to violence from the Right (read ordinary citizens that did not vote for Queen Hillary) and journalists were going to be put into actual danger. In “CNN’s Operation Memeosse – AKA Poke the Trolls” I spoke at great length at the ridiculousness of this claim because it was a joke meme.
Far too often mayors will make politically expedient decisions through the lenses of how it is going to appear when they next run for office instead of making those tough decisions that might cost them advancement, but would benefit the populace that they were elected to serve. A true leader puts the needs of their citizens first and leaves the empty virtue signaling to activists and community organizers. Here are four mayors that represent the worse in self-aggrandizement and seem hell bent on escaping up the next rung of the political ladder before the cities that they manage crumble into ruin.
Liberal media promoted the “Fake News” term to try and brand Conservative websites as illegitimate to discredit their voices… irony here is that many of them that pushed this narrative are finding themselves caught in a web of their own making because their hatred of President Trump and Conservatives is clouding their judgement and common sense. Now in an effort to shut down dissenting voices on the internet that are bullying their multibillion dollar company (read private citizens making joke meme) CNN has violated two of the three golden rules…
We have watched this play out time and time again and the results are the same each and every time. Morning Joe calls the President a thug… zero establishment Republican defense. Morning Joe calls the President a bully… zero establishment Republican defense. Morning Joe calls the President a liar… zero establishment Republican defense. Morning Joe questions his mental health… zero establishment Republican defense.
