  • Vox Justifies Leftists Terrorizing Opponents [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 11 Nov 2018 | John Semmens
    Last week a loud and angry mob of Antifa activists surrounded the home of Fox News personality Tucker Carlson engaged in lengthy chanting of leftist slogans and ended up breaking the home’s front door. Tucker’s terrified wife barricaded herself inside and called the police. While most media commentators on both sides of the left-right spectrum denounced this tactic, Vox Senior Correspondent and co-founder Matthew Yglesias hailed it, saying “I think the idea behind terrorizing his family is to make them feel some of the fear that the victims of MAGA-inspired violence feel thanks to the non-stop racial incitement coming from...

  • Pavlich: Arizona doesn’t deserve Sinema

    We’re one week away from the 2018 midterm elections. In the months leading up to Nov. 6, we’ve seen predictions of a “blue wave,” “red wave,” and everything in between. But as voters head to the polls Tuesday, one thing is clear: Arizona doesn’t deserve Democratic Rep. Kysten Sinema as senator. On the surface, Sinema has presented herself to voters as a moderate Democrat willing to work with Republicans, and even President Trump, on a number of issues. But Sinema’s history tells a different story. During the early years of the Bush administration and shortly after the United States was...
  • Don't you think that it's weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?

    Actress Kristen Bell raises controversial questions about Snow White, consent, and it's all tied into the #MeToo movement. She may have forgotten that it's just a movie. When it's 2018 and nothing surprises you anymore, then it's no wonder a 38-year-old Kristen Bell is asking kids if they think it's weird that Snow White gets kissed in her sleep. Nevermind the fact that it's a fictional children's movie that kids love, but that doesn't matter. Bell just wants to be a nuisance and make people roll their eyes. Her bizarre point was made on the Parents.com website. To answer her...

    The University of Southern Maine apologized Wednesday for the “rogue behavior” of a retired professor who offered credit for participating in a protest against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, announcing that she has since been barred from teaching at the university. Susan Feiner, who retired in September but continued to teach some classes, offered students one credit for taking a pop-up course called “Engaged Citizenship,” which would bus students to Washington to participate in a protest urging Republican Sen. Susan Collins to oppose confirming then-Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

    Mises Wire ^ | 10/11/2018 | Tate Fegley
    Police departments in a number of U.S. cities — Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans — are receiving increased attention for their failure to clear even half of the homicides that occur in their jurisdiction. And note that to “clear” a case doesn’t even necessarily require that someone be convicted of the crime, but only that either an arrest was made or that the case was “cleared by exceptional means,” meaning that the police identified a suspect, had sufficient evidence to arrest, and knew their location, but encountered a circumstance that prevented them from making the arrest.Of all the crimes classified...

    An anti-Trump professor, Dr. Carol Christine Fair, is no longer teaching classes at Georgetown University following calls for the outspoken liberal educator to be fired. Fair stirred up controversy on Twitter when she wished miserable deaths upon Republican senators supporting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. “Look at [this] chorus of entitled white men justifying a serial rapist’s arrogated entitlement,” she wrote. “All of them deserve miserable deaths while feminists laugh as they take their last gasps. Bonus: we castrate their corpses and feed them to swine? Yes.” Her account was de-verified and temporarily suspended Tuesday for violating Twitter’s rules, but...
  • Top Twelve Beliefs of the Modern left

    In no particular order 1. A modern leftist believes that any man accused of sexual misconduct is guilty until proven innocent, unless they are a prominent democrat. 2. A modern leftist believes their views are so morally superior, that they have a right to use-- harassment, threats and violence-- on those with whom they disagree. 3. A modern leftist believes that political speech they don't like should be censored and often punished. 4. A modern leftist thinks that the primary purpose of the education system is to indoctrinate other people's children with leftist values. 5. A modern leftist believes they...

    After Democrats all but lose the prospect of derailing the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, suddenly a new accuser with a 35-year-old charge of groping abuse comes out of the woodwork. Problem is, she doesn't want to tell us everything. Christine Blasey Ford's accusation started with a letter – an anonymous accusatory letter of bad behavior dating from high school. A letter we were supposed to believe, a guy's career we were supposed to ruin, yet we were to take only on faith that there was any merit to it. Well, that fell apart, so the accuser...

    Church Militant ^ | September 13, 2018 | Juliana Freitag
    In light of the staggering revelations of Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò, currently hunted by the Holy See's intelligence services for asking Pope Francis to resign for the cover-up of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick's homosexual predation, Church Militant reached out to Dr. Antonio Caponnetto, an accomplished Catholic historian and doctor in philosophy from Buenos Aires — and one who knows more about Pope Francis when he was Cdl. Jorge Bergoglio than anyone else. Caponnetto is a prolific researcher and lecturer who's written extensively about liberation theology in South America, but is mostly known for his book La Iglesia Traicionada (The Church Betrayed), a first-hand account of living under the reign of Cdl. Bergoglio...

    I Love My Freedom.org ^ | September 12, 2018 | Chris Donaldson
    In a school shooting incident that you absolutely won’t hear about on CNN, a leftist professor decided that it would be a good idea to express his anger toward President Trump by shooting himself in a campus restroom. With the nation’s colleges now having been completely taken over by radicals who are able to brainwash receptive young minds with their hatred of capitalism and promotion of cultural Marxism, institutions of higher learning now serve as incubators for the raging anti-Americanism that has manifested itself on the socialist left. One of those “educators” apparently just had too much and in what...

    Jihad Watch ^ | 9-6-18 | Robert Spencer
    It has long been charged that Antifa operatives enter the crowds of pro-freedom rallies and say and do things in order to discredit those rallies. In the protests in Chemnitz against mass Muslim migration, this man made a Hitler salute, which was picked up by the international media as proof that the rallies were full of neo-Nazis. But this man has now been unmasked as a supporter of the Red Army Faction, a Communist terrorist group. Even the German media is admitting it. But it is unlikely there will follow any retractions from the media outside the country, which is...

    Bicycles and illegals don't mix on busy city streets in Chicago. No, wait: They actually mix a lot, and that's a problem. A Chicago bike-safety activist, who made it her business to erect bicycles spray-painted white on city streets where cyclists were killed as a reminder to drivers to look out for cyclists, decided that that issue wasn't all that important in cases where the driver is illegal. Which turned out to be her own assault by an incautious illegal alien driver. In her mind, being illegal trumped the very bike safety she spent time erecting monuments to. One set...

    Tamar Braxton Responds to Delta Airlines’ Statement Rebuking Her ‘Unusual Behavior’ Wednesday, August 1, 2018 Tamar Braxton has responded to a Delta Airlines statement blaming her “unusual behavior” and her refusal to follow a flight attendant’s instructions during a recent flight. Tamar’s sister Towanda accused a Delta pilot of ridiculing Tamar after the pilot left the safety of the reinforced cockpit to deal with the part-time singer’s unruly behavior. “@tamarbraxton got ridiculed by a pilot for flying while black on Delta,” Towanda wrote in an Instagram post dated July 28. “Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler...

    The Failing New York Times ^ | 8/9/2018 | Erik Nielson
    “Hate” is a dangerously elastic label. And it has long been used to demonize unpopular expression, particularly among people of color. Apple, Facebook, YouTube, Spotify and most other major internet distributors took a bold step this week when they all but banned content from Infowars, a website run by the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. The tech companies cited their policies against hate speech for their decision, rather than the trafficking in fake news by Infowars. It’s tempting to applaud this move, but we should be wary. While Mr. Jones’s rhetoric is certainly repugnant, mounting pressure from the political left...
  • We Cannot Remain Silent on Jerusalem

    B”H We Cannot Remain Silent on Jerusalem Two events in 5752 (around Jan. 1992) compel everyone to speak up about what happened in Jerusalem last week. On the 3rd of Shvat the Lubavitcher Rebbe indirectly, but clearly, charged chasidim to go forth and speak in his name/say what needs to be said. 12 days later, on Tu BShvat, the Rebbe stopped Shamir's minister in a dollar line. Many prophetic things were said and indeed it led to the fall of a government and later a president arose and fell after not heeding the warnings, but what's relevant here is the...

    **SNIP** In a break with tradition, Ocasio-Cortez, who labels herself a democratic socialist, has no plans to meet with any of the entertainment industry's Democratic political power brokers while she is in town. She will not be having coffee with Carl Reiner. There will be no sitdown with Jeffrey Katzenberg or David Geffen. No $5,000-a-plate dinner at Robert Iger's mansion in Brentwood. "None of our clients are meeting with her," says Marie Lloyd of the political and philanthropic consultancy Gonring, Spahn & Associates, which counts Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg as clients. And none of the other political operatives or members...

    Liberal-leftism is a mental illness. To find out whether you are afflicted with this deadly and largely incurable condition here is a simple test based on recent events. A man named Faisal Hussain has gone on a gun rampage in Toronto, killing two, wounding 13. [snip] Do you: a) Think of the victims – especially the two fatal casualties (Reese Fallon, 18; and ten-year old Julianna Kozis) – and their heartbroken friends and families. [snip] b) Fabricate a narrative in which the attack has nothing to do with Islam. Call out and vilify anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Reserve all...
