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.
There is nothing better than to have the smug “writers” at HuffPo arrogantly lecture us common folk on the virtues of compassion. Of course, the HuffPo definition of compassion means that either you completely agree with their designated big government solution to solving any societal ill or you are just a greedy soul sucking Conservative that likes to fashion cereal bowls out of the skulls of children and the elderly.
Getting lucky with a lottery ticket usually makes one feel like a winner… that is of course unless you live in Illinois where it is very likely that the state will once again be handing out IOUs instead of money when people win. For the residents of Illinois this is old news as they went through this last year for around six months when the state’s budget crisis forced the state to stop payments to lottery winners temporarily until a short-term budget deal could be hammered out and as the Daily Herald reports, “Illinois Lottery winners might — again — face the prospects of not being paid their jackpots in a timely manner if no spending deal is struck by the end of the month.”
It has been a couple of months since Hollywood elite have graced us with a virtue signaling montage video. You know the ones where they cut from one star to the next and are all dramatically reading from the same script like the oxygen deprived zombies. Apparently plotting the assassination of the President leaves plenty of time for Hollywood hypocrites to give us another one of these gems…
You ever see irony in action? Irony in action is when the Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights launches a hotline for people to snitch on “hate speech” on the exact same day that the US Supreme Court hands down a decision that says so called “hate speech” is protected by the first amendment. An excerpt on the Minneapolis Department of Civil Rights declares, “In no uncertain terms, hate-motivated speech and actions have no place in Minneapolis nor will they be tolerated. Activities such as these are against the law. No one is above the law.”
Words matter. The Left has declared war on what you think and even what you say and the words you choose to say. If you are able to define the lists of allowable words and even begin painting benign words and phrases as some sort of code for deep seated racism and sexism then you gain an advantage in any debate as your opponent first has to debunk these ridiculous and often spurious attacks before they can even begin the process of debating the core issue.
