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.
Yes it is disgusting. Yes it is despicable. Yes I could probably come up with another 40 adjectives that would describe what I personally think of Shakespeare in the Park’s ‘Julius Caesar’ and their latest version where they are depicting the assassination of Julius Caesar as red power tie wearing doppelganger of our President Donald Trump. While I think it is unbridled hateful dogwhistling from lunatic Leftists who still cannot believe that America rejected their world view; it is not illegal. While I may call what they are doing distasteful, disrespectful and without any artistic merit they are still within their legal right to perform the play. Let me repeat this again… while we may not like it… NOT ILLEGAL.
Instead the Media when they cannot paint it as violence somehow grown out of the political Right will simply black out the coverage and continue to beat their favorite dead Russian horse and Democratic lawmakers will pay some quick lip service when they are cornered by a diligent reporter, but immediately screech “Impeach Trump” and hold out their hands for donations.
Many on the political Left have been calling this a lack of world leadership from the U.S. Just because you are standing in front of the group all moving in the same direction does not make you a leader. A leader is going to make the unpopular tough calls for the people he leads. This is exactly what the President did. He weighed the costs, trillions stripped from our economy and millions of jobs lost, versus the predicted benefit, the most optimistic projections call for a statistically insignificant decrease in projected temperature increases and made the choice that benefited American more in the long run.
If you believe that Russia tampered with voting machines in order to change votes to get President Trump elected… congratulations you are joining the ranks of 58% of Democrats that are stupid enough to believe this nonsense. Per a recent YouGov poll 58% of Democrats believe that Russians hacked voting machines despite there not being a shred of evidence. There is far more evidence that illegals voted in our election and Democrats regularly refute that claim, but believe this nonsense.
Underneath all this nonsense and leftwing spin is running a genuine and deep seeded hatred for President Trump and any American that defied their worldview by voting for him. In the darkest parts of this hatred lie the constant Leftist dogwhistles feverishly hoping for the President’s death. While the Left has been blaming the Right for nonexistent violence they have created a world in which it is more acceptable to punch someone, hit them with a bike lock or make death threats against a President instead of engaging in a rational discussion.
