One of the bigger news pieces over this past week has been the racially-charged tweet sent out by Roseanne directed at former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
In a response to a story about WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange exposing Obama’s CIA for having “spied on French presidential candidates”, Roseanne tweeted: “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj.”
This caused a massive stir, with ABC eventually cancelling the reboot to her show.
Eventually, Roseanne apologized for the tweet multiple times, but wound up deleting those tweets as well, for some reason.
Now, due to ABC cancelling the show, many conservatives have taken to defend her and her tweet, which is not advisable. That tweet was wrong and in poor taste. I know the Left constantly does the same, with examples such as comparing Trump to a baboon in more than just his supposed lack of intelligence, ESPN’s Keith Olbermann tweeting out a series of curse words at Trump, calling him a Nazi, and Joy Behar repeatedly attacking Christians.
I know full well how sick and depraved these people are. Which is precisely why I’m not too surprised to see Roseanne Barr tweeting such a racist tweet.
I know that in recent time, she has shown to have a bit more sensibility than other liberals. Personally, I tend to refer to Roseanne as the Yogi Bear of liberals – she’s smarter than the average liberal.
But at the end of the day, that is precisely what she is: a liberal.
Throughout the first iteration of her show, she would constantly promote abortion, gay marriage and everything liberals promote. That didn’t change in the reboot, with the family showcasing a crossdressing boy as part of their family.
The only reason I say Roseanne is smarter than the average liberal is because she supports Trump. But that isn’t a license to say something as terrible as comparing Valerie Jarrett (don’t misunderstand, I don’t like her either) to a monkey, or something to that extent.
She supports Trump, and that’s great! She understands a good deal more about America than many other Hollywood liberals. But she isn’t a conservative.
She once ran for President as a socialist, she has wished ill of Christians who eat at Chic-Fil-A, willingly butchered the National Anthem prior to a baseball game and asked Jimmy Kimmel if he wanted “Pence for the friggin’ president”, as to say that she wouldn’t want him to be POTUS any more than the crying "comedian".
She excuses her National Anthem performance as saying she “was trying to be respectful”, claims her tweet about Christians and Chic-Fil-A was meant to raise awareness about the health risks of eating fast food and now, with this latest scandal, blames her Ambien prescription for her words.
She fits the profile of any other limousine liberal out there, aside from her support of Trump. But, for some reason, it’s that support for the President that has conservatives backing her up and supporting her.
Don’t get me wrong, I find it interesting and endearing that Roseanne Barr, of all people, would support Trump. But that isn’t an excuse for her behavior, and it never should be.
ABC was right to fire her, since they are her employer and free speech can be limited by your employer. If you were to say something that egregious and your employer found out, you shouldn’t be surprised if consequences ensue.
And yes, we can mention the NFL in all this, and call out the Left’s hypocrisy over celebrating Roseanne’s firing while decrying outrage over the NFL’s Anthem policy being restrictive of the First Amendment. But my take is that, in both cases, the employer was in the right. They have the power to do those things.
The First Amendment of the United States protects us from being prosecuted by the government. It protects our ability to speak freely without fearing incarceration. But the First Amendment does not protect an employee from their employer. Many times, the NFL banned players choosing to express their thoughts. They have banned a player from wearing pink cleats in honor of his deceased mother because it wasn’t Breast Cancer Awareness month. They banned a player from wearing cleats that honored the victims of 9/11.
They may be jerk moves, but they have the right to do that. Likewise, they have the right to ban kneeling during the Anthem (which, by the way, the NBA has even stricter rules regarding that). Similarly, ABC has the right to cancel and fire Roseanne for that disgusting tweet.
Now, in her apologies, I do believe she was being sincere. I’m not flat-out saying we should throw her under the bus and character assassinate her. That’s a job for the Left to try to do, even if it’s to one of their own. But her behavior can’t simply be excused because of her support for Trump.
Now, I know what you may be thinking: “this guy is abandoning his core values! He doesn’t believe in freedom of speech!” Relax, I’m not abandoning anything. I’m certainly not turning against my Christian conservative beliefs. I’m simply pointing out that Roseanne tweeted something bad and her employer has the right to deliver a consequence they see fit.
Don’t get me wrong, ABC is still a pile of garbage, and all of the Left has tweeted and said far worse things about Trump and conservatives than what Roseanne said. But, like I said, the First Amendment doesn’t protect anyone from their employer.
She still has the right to have said what she said, and people have the right to either attack or defend her. I won’t necessarily attack her myself, but the point needs to be made clear: Roseanne is still a clear-cut liberal. She’s been learning in recent time, as evidenced by her support for Trump, but she still holds many Leftist ideologies, which were clear in even the reboot of her show.
Like I said earlier, I believe her apologies were sincere. She made a mistake and apologized for it, even if she was also blaming prescription drugs for it. So I do think she deserves another shot with her show, but she needs to have learned this lesson here and now.
What’s the lesson? A couple of things, really. First, the First Amendment protects you from government action, not employer action. Second, her liberal values are partly responsible for her words, since racism and hatred are rooted in the Left. Third, the Left’s double-standard is crystal clear. You can only say egregious things about conservatives, not liberals.
They celebrate Michelle Wolf for her disgusting “jokes” about Sarah Sanders while destroying Roseanne for her disgusting “joke” about Valerie Jarrett.
This is a very teachable moment: the Left believes they are the only ones who can say disgusting things. Even then, they can only be said at the expense of their political opponents.
The reason I mention this is because it should send a clear message to Roseanne: abandon your liberal ideologies. They’ve only ever brought misery and pain to people. Abortion means death, gay marriage is sinful, weed is self-destructive and stupid, transgenderism is a mental disease and there is only one Lord God Almighty, who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Supporting Trump is a good first step. It means that she has been thinking a little bit about what Obama has done to this country. Hopefully, she will continue thinking more as time goes by and eventually finds Christ.
I don’t see any reason to support her words or actions. They were pretty bad, to say the least. It’s clear that she is still very much a liberal, but that can change. I know that many of you reading this might support Roseanne Barr and might be angry with me. That is fine, you are free to do so. But I ask that you consider reason here. Why support Roseanne for what she said? Why support her for being fired over that tweet? Just because she supports Trump? Trump isn’t the be all, end all of the conservative movement. He’s its current face and leader, for certain, but the movement will continue long after he ceases to be President and eventually goes to Heaven.
Just supporting Trump doesn’t give license for people to do bad things. On contraire, it usually means that people are considerate enough and smart enough to know between right and wrong. Liberals have a very warped sense of right and wrong, as you have clearly seen.
The distinction must be made between a Trump supporter and a conservative. Trump supporters tend to be conservatives, and most of them are, but not always. Conservatives tend to be supportive of Trump, and most are, but not always, for some baffling reason.
Roseanne may be a Trump supporter, but she’s no conservative. Not even close.
“Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”
While the Left constantly accuses Trump and his administration of separating children from their families and mistreating illegal immigrants, they fail to recognize that Obama just so happened to not be such a friend to illegals either.
Over Memorial Day weekend, AZCentral.com shared an article about illegal immigrant children being detained by ICE, with a picture (above) showing a couple of kids sleeping on the floor in a cage. Horrifying images for certain, but the Left made the mistake of attributing the pictures to Trump’s ICE, not Obama’s.
Jon Favreau, Obama’s speechwriter, tweeted about it, eventually deleting the tweet upon learning that his old buddy was to blame for the pictures.
Regardless, he still felt compelled to try to spin it in order to blame Trump, saying: “These awful pictures are from 2014, when the government’s challenge was reconnecting unaccompanied minors who showed up at the border with family or a safe sponsor. Today, in 2018, the government is CREATING unaccompanied minors by tearing them away from family at the border.”
Sure, Obama was trying to reunite families, so his intentions definitely excuse such mistreatment of these children. That definitely is a good point.
Seriously, these guys could excuse Obama for a second Holocaust if they felt his intentions were noble.
But let’s move on to other embarrassed liberals. Antonio Villaraigosa, former L.A. mayor and California gubernatorial candidate, tweeted: “Speechless. This is not who we are as a nation.”
The irony lies in that these are some of the words said by Obama regarding many different things. “This is not who we are.”
Of course, he later had to delete the tweet, but people had already noticed, including noted conservative activist Stephen Miller, who replied to Villaraigosa: “Hello, Antonio. Why did you delete this tweet? Is it because this was 2014 and you are no longer outraged because who this all happened under? Are you no longer speechless? Help explain, thanks.”
Villaraigosa made the mistake of actually replying to Miller: “Taking children from their parents whether it’s under a Democrat president or a Republican one doesn’t make it any more right. The key issue is not when it started, but when will it end. It’s wrong. It’s wrong for Democrats. It’s wrong for Republicans. It’s wrong for Americans.”
I doubt he actually believes in what he is saying. His tweet was not necessarily political or even giving blame to anyone. His tweet was relatively objective, so why delete it? It still makes sense under that line of thinking. People should still be speechless by such an inhumane act. So why delete the tweet? Furthermore, if it’s as outrageous as he believes it is, why not bash Obama over it? Or at least blame ICE leadership from 2014?
That’s why I find difficulty believing what he says. He thinks it’s outrageous if he believes Trump is the cause of it, but doesn’t think it’s outrageous if it was Obama’s administration who was in charge during that time.
CNN reporter Hadas Gold, who shared the tweet initially, wound up deleting it as well and sent out this ridiculous explanation: “Deleted previous tweet because gave impression of recent photos (they’re from 2014)”
Here was her original tweet: “First Photos of separated migrant children at holding facility.”
That’s not giving the impression, that’s explicitly saying it’s recent.
Alas, we move on to the next embarrassed liberal. New York Times Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Jake Silverstein also weighed in, calling the photos “disturbing”, before also deleting the tweet.
He then offered this excuse: “Correction: this link, which was going around this morning, is from 2014. Still disturbing, of course, but only indirectly related to current situation. My bad (and a good reminder not to RT things while distracted w/ family on the weekend).”
What situation? As far as we know, this isn’t happening under Trump’s ICE. As the pictures are from 2014, we only know OBAMA was doing this, not Trump. I’m not saying these illegal immigrant families and children are living in luxury comparable to Trump Tower, but Trump might be treating them better than Obama. Considering these photos, the bar was set pretty low.
Perhaps my favorite embarrassed liberal’s response, however, came from Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour, who decided to leave her tweet up but still attack Trump like the crazy woman she is: “No amnesia here. Our immigration system is a disaster and was a disaster long before Trump came along. Now it will become increasingly worse under this White Supremacist Administration who have made their hatred for immigrants crystal clear.”
From what I can see, Obama hated ILLEGALS more than Trump does, so I don’t know what she’s talking about here.
But she certainly gives me a lot to work with here. First, it’s interesting to see her admit Trump didn’t “create the disaster” that is our immigration system (though one can argue that it is a disaster, but for different reasons than the Left would give you). While she does not specifically bash the Obama ICE leadership for this, she’s at least sober-minded enough to realize you can’t flat out blame everything on Trump (though it’s not come from lack of trying).
Second, I can always make the case that white supremacy has always been entrenched in the Democrat Party and continues to be the case to this day, if only through legislative measures and not in speech. But one does not need to go too far to see the effect of the Left’s disastrous policies on black communities.
Lastly, Trump doesn’t hate immigrants. He doesn’t even hate illegals. He’s not deporting them because he hates them. He’s deporting them because they are here illegally and should suffer the consequences of such actions. We are a nation living under rule of law. Someone breaks the law, they suffer accordingly for it. Everyone that is here when they don’t have permission or a right to be here must be kicked out. If they wish to return, they are more than welcome to do so through legal means.
The only people who enact or enforce laws based on hatred is the Left and Democrat Party.
Finally, we have BLM leader Shaun King, the whitest black man to have ever lived, giving his own two cents on the matter: “I saw this photo floating around and didn’t know if it was real. It is,” the radical leader said. “Children of immigrants are being held in cages, like dogs, at ICE detention centers, sleeping on the floor. It’s an abomination.”
Imagine the shock in his face when he discovered that his fellow fake-black-guy of a President was the one responsible for the pictures.
Now, AZCentral, the source for the article, had to issue a clarification, saying: “Photos of children at a migrant holding facility have gone viral on social media. The pictures are from 2014. They were originally posted with this azcentral article about unaccompanied migrant children who were transported to a facility in Arizona.”
I simply can’t keep in my laughter at the ignorance of these liberals. Now, to be completely fair, I can’t exactly expect them to do their own research. They’re Leftists, after all. Really, anyone could’ve been fooled without the appropriate research, but that’s not what I’m most focused on.
I don’t blame them for having been fooled. I don’t even blame them for tweeting their original tweets. I do, however, blame them for trying to pretend it’s not a big deal because it was Obama who was responsible. And I do blame them for still trying to attack Trump, despite the fact that the pictures depicted the way Obama’s ICE chose to treat these children.
It’s their hypocrisy that I have a problem with. They thought those pictures were horrifying and outrageous when they believed they were recent and under Trump’s administration. But upon learning Obama’s ICE was responsible for the pictures, they don’t think it’s as big a deal or anywhere near as outrageous. Despite them saying they do think it’s bad and outrageous, it’s clear that their anger and outrage left them when they discovered the truth.
It was a big deal only when they thought Trump was responsible, and that’s what I have a problem with.
Earlier, I mentioned that they would’ve excused Obama for a second Holocaust if they believed his intentions were noble. Similarly, if Hitler had been a Democrat President, they would’ve excused the first one.
That’s the kind of double-standard they set for themselves. Everything a Republican does is bad and everything a Democrat does is good. If a Democrat does something they would attack a Republican for, they either bury the story, ignore it entirely, or excuse it to the best of their ability. They were ok with sexual assault and harassment until they figured they could attack Trump on it.
Don’t misunderstand, they are still ok with it. Once Trump is done being President, or any sort of problem for the Left altogether, they will go back to excusing the Harvey Weinsteins of the world.
But morality is a different matter altogether. Here, I just want to focus on their hypocrisy, which is painfully obvious.
“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”
NRA TV has made a lot of great, logical videos in support of the 2nd Amendment and in the dissection and destruction of Leftist arguments pushing for gun control. One of their latest videos, made by NRA TV host Colion Noir, talks about one of the potential reasons for the frequency of mass shootings taking place in America being the willing or unwilling glorification of mass shooters by the mainstream media.
Noir begins by saying: “Can anyone tell me the last time a mass school shooter left a manifesto, a comment on social media, or a video where they said they were inspired to commit their atrocity because of a firearm? Name one. I’m sure you can’t, and neither can I. Because as much as the media love to pivot the conversation after a mass school shooting to gun control, the pen is still mightier than the sword.”
“These kids aren’t being inspired by inert junk of plastic and metal lying on a table. They’re inspired by the infamous glory of past shooters, who they relate to. And no entity on the planet does a better job, whether directly or indirectly, of glorifying these killers and thereby providing the inspiration for the next one than our mainstream media.”
The video then cuts to clips of mainstream media sources covering the Parkland shooting.
Noir then continues: “You may hate guns and wanna ban every single one of them. But even you know what I just said is true. Attention-seeking in this country is at an all-time high. And if social media has proven one thing, it’s that there are people out there willing to do anything for attention, even if it means slaughtering classmates they hate, but letting the ones they like live so they can tell their story to every mainstream media news outlet who are itching like fiends to be the first to do a deep-sea dive into the killer’s background.”
The video again cuts to MSM sources talking about the perpetrators of shootings, and their motives behind the shootings.
After a while, Noir then gets to his apparent point: “It’s time to put an end to this glorification of carnage in pursuit of ratings, because it is killing our kids. It’s time for Congress to step up and pass legislation putting common sense limitations on our mainstream media’s ability to report on these school shootings.”
“There’s no need to cover these shootings for two weeks straight plastering the kids’ face over and over and over again. Pass a law stopping the media from reporting the killer’s name or showing his face. You can still report on the shootings… We just need reasonable laws that place limitations on the glory and fame you give to these killers and their twisted motivations.”
He says all of this with a completely straight face. He seems to mean every word he is uttering. For anyone who appreciates their 1st Amendment rights, which includes just about everyone, even liberals, they might be angered at seeing Noir pushing for government regulation on the media’s 1st amendment rights to report on something how they see fit.
If that were the end of the video, one would reasonably think that Noir abandoned his conservative principles and switched to Leftism and believing that it is up to the government to dictate what a news organization can and cannot say or report regarding something.
What Noir says next is precisely what makes this video so brilliant: “You know that feeling of anxiety that shot through your body when I said the government should pass laws to limit the media’s ability to exercise their First Amendment right? That’s the same feeling gun owners get when they hear people say the same thing about the Second Amendment.”
“Hearing me advocate for the government’s ability to limit ANYONE’S 1st Amendment rights, including the media, should anger ALL of you watching this video – the same way it should anger you when anyone tries to use the same limitations on the 2nd Amendment.”
He knew precisely what kind of reaction he was going to get upon seemingly advocating for increased government power over the media. He knew that no one, either from the Left or the Right, would advocate for the government’s ability to suppress what the media can report. That feigning advocacy for government obstruction of the media’s 1st Amendment rights would anger even liberals, and would let them know precisely what gun owners feel when their side calls for government obstruction of people’s 2nd Amendment rights.
Noir then proceeds to explain that he does believe that news organizations should be mindful about how much glory, either willingly or unwillingly, they are giving to people who have committed unspeakable horror against innocent people. And he’s right.
With the Parkland shooter (whose name I will no longer share so as to not be part of the problem), his face would be plastered in every media outlet, and his name has become infamous, which is another way for someone to become legendary. Not to mention that he also received love letters from crazy girls who “loved” what he did and “loved” him for it.
Do you have any idea what a guy would do to receive such attention from girls? He would do precisely what the Parkland shooter did and try to one-up him and do even more damage. So anyone who is not of the right mind and of the right heart would look at the Parkland shooter’s situation and be envious of the attention he was receiving. So, he would decide to make a name for himself and receive that much attention or perhaps even more, if he can cause more damage.
So the media does have a hand in school shootings, if only in the kind of attention that they give to people who have committed tremendous evil.
But Noir, being the conservative that he is, knows full well that the answer does not lie in government intervention and legislation. Such legislation would only do more harm than good in the long-run. That is the case for both legislation limiting the media’s 1st Amendment rights and limiting people’s 2nd Amendment rights.
What makes this video so brilliant is that it turns the tables on the Left and makes them feel precisely what we feel whenever they advocate for gun control, using language and talking points that are precisely like the Left’s. Calling for “common sense media control” is something that angers the Left (as it should), but calling for “common sense gun control” delights them. Calling for “common sense media control” is something that angers conservatives (as it should) and calling for “common sense gun control” is precisely the same.
It gives people a different perspective and allows liberals who advocate for gun control to walk a little in our shoes. Hearing someone advocating for the government to come in and restrict the media is not something any liberal would want to hear. It’s something that is very obviously fascistic and tyrannical. It’s what socialist countries do (which is why I find liberals’ advocacy for socialism so ironic and tragic at the same time). It’s the same thing gun owners and conservatives feel when they hear someone advocating for the government to come in and further restrict people’s 2nd Amendment rights.
Taking away anyone’s 1st Amendment rights is just as tyrannical as taking away anyone’s 2nd Amendment rights. The ironic thing is that the Left loves the 1st Amendment when it protects THEIR right to free speech but not when it protects anyone who has a different opinion. However, part of what makes this video so great is that the mainstream media is largely Leftist. To say that the government should limit the MSM’s free speech is something abhorrent for anyone regardless of political leaning. So it can successfully give liberals some perspective, when someone advocates for the regulation and suppression of something they love.
Kudos to the people who came up with such a great idea. While I highly doubt this will change very many people’s minds, since Leftists are mostly stubborn, it is possible that the more reasonable of liberals will be willing to reconsider some things.
And if even one person can be successfully reached in deep thought regarding this issue, then the video has done its job perfectly.
“The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.”
It is rare to see a member of the MSM acting not so much like a propagandist and more like an actual journalist, pressing the interviewee with tough, but fair questioning, regardless of the political party the interviewee belongs to.
CNN held a town hall meeting on Wednesday, in which survivors of the most recent school shooting got the chance to ask House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi questions regarding gun control and what her party, as well as the government in general, can and/or will do regarding making schools safer.
Particularly, a female student named Alexis Wilson asked the following: “Where does the government stand on arming and training our teachers, much in the way we use air marshals on airplanes?”
A good and logical question to ask a member of Congress. Pelosi, being the Leftist that she is, simply dismissed the idea, saying that she and her peers “do not think that is the solution”, adding that she does not “support arming teachers and the rest.”
Upon this reply, Chris Cuomo did the unthinkable: he actually CHALLENGED Pelosi’s response and supported the student’s question. “There’s a little bit of an either-or problem with how we’re trying to approach solutions,” said Cuomo.
“The building we’re in now, the building you work in, the point of entry there is secure. You don’t walk in with a trench coat with a shotgun underneath your jacket, and get in. It doesn’t happen, you know this… Why can’t that be part of the equation? Talk about universal background checks, fine. Talk about mental health, how to identify them, money for treatment. But why either-or? Why not make schools safer?”
Pelosi is visibly shaken by the line of questioning and struggles to find a coherent or relevant answer, repeating that she does not believe it is a solution.
While it is always likely Nancy Pelosi will say something dumb, particularly if given the chance to speak for a long time, as the town hall provides, it is rare to see the interviewer issue such a good question that challenges the interviewee, regardless of whether the interviewee is a Democrat or Republican.
We don’t usually see the MSM be tough but fair with Democrats. They usually allow for Democrats to get away with a lot of things (not necessarily always, to their credit) and will usually side with Democrats.
Here, Chris Cuomo seemed more like a real journalist than a propagandist. I will give him credit for that, at least, since pretty much every other time he talks, it’s Leftist propaganda. But in this instance, he did a good job. So much so, in fact, that even NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch praised Cuomo for his job.
“This was a good line of questioning from Chris Cuomo here and he makes a good point about CNN’s security and controlled access points – which I’ve walked through many times.”
It also overall makes a good argument against people who do not believe we should install more security and metal detectors in schools, out of fear of making schools look like prisons.
Regarding this argument, I’ve talked about this before, but I will reiterate my points.
First of all, a school already feels like prison for any student that walks through those doors. Even I, who used to like going to school as a kid, hated going to school once I hit puberty and once I entered high school. It’s something in our hormones that makes us think school is a massive waste of time and we would rather be anywhere else but there. The only reason I was willing to go to school was because of my friends. Aside from that, school felt like prison… except you will likely find far less problems to solve in prison. (Math joke).
So adding security to our schools might make our schools look like prison, but they essentially already are for the students.
Second, because of the type of security at prisons, people don’t just walk in and shoot up the place. It’s a sad realization to see that prisons are hundreds of times more secure than our schools. Not that prisons shouldn’t be secure. Given the criminal element residing in prisons, security is a top priority. But our children should be able to feel just as safe, at least from those who would wish to shoot up the place.
Third, it’s not just our prisons that have high security and metal detectors. Airports also have a lot of security. Government buildings also have a lot of security. The only reason people use prisons to argue against metal detectors and added security is because that has more of an impact than saying “but then schools will feel like airports or government buildings!”
Nevermind the fact that schools ARE government buildings and are somehow less secure than the office of your Congressman or woman.
The argument of “don’t make schools like prisons” is entirely a psychological weapon. One can make the same comparisons to other government buildings, but that would not be anywhere near as impactful. So, those who do not wish to create any real change and solutions that will work use this argument.
Finally, the reason Pelosi and other Democrats don’t want to use this solution is because it is something that will actually help. Part of the reason the Santa Fe high school shooting isn’t made to be a big a deal as Parkland is because the perpetrator didn’t use an AR-15. In fact, there’s nothing remotely legal about what the shooter (whose name I refuse to share so as to not give him the satisfaction) did. He used an illegal gun, which he possessed illegally, and most of all, he committed the illegal action of KILLING people.
Not one single gun control measure or law proposed by any Democrat would’ve prevented the Santa Fe shooting. To be fair, not a single one would’ve also prevented Parkland, but they at least have somewhat of an argument to sell to people there.
In this case, the shooting doesn’t help the Left further their anti-gun agenda, so it’s almost entirely ignored.
And since added security can actually help, it means a reduction in the likelihood of a school shooting happening or being lethal for anyone other than the shooter. Such a result is detrimental to the Left’s anti-gun agenda, so they dismiss it as something that “wouldn’t work”.
It’s not that it wouldn’t work. It’s that it would put Democrats OUT of work. The Left’s ultimate goal, as we already know, is to establish Communism in the United States. That will not be possible if the American people still have their guns. Lenin made sure that people could not revolt against his rule once he established Communism in Russia and became its leader. Hitler took away people’s guns so that they couldn’t fight back against the Nazi’s Socialist rule.
And in Venezuela, Hugo Chavez issued an all-out ban of private gun ownership back in 2012. According to the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime, Venezuela’s intentional homicide rate in 2015 stood at 57.15. Contrast that to the United States’ intentional homicide rate in the same year of 4.88, and you can see precisely how little help the ban in Venezuela was. And, by the way, Venezuela’s intentional homicide rate is only the second highest in the Americas, with El Salvador, which also has some tight gun control laws, being first.
But those numbers are entirely irrelevant to the Left. They don’t honestly care if the world around them is in chaos, so long as they are safe and protected and they still are the ones with all the power. This is the case for the Left wherever you go. In Venezuela, people are starving and dying while Maduro celebrates his “victory” and issues probes into opposing news organizations. In North Korea, the situation is even more dire, with people being forced to clean and organize pictures of North Korea’s former leaders in order to avoid them and their families being sentenced to life in prison.
These are the rules that the Left wants to imitate here in America. What they all have in common, aside from being dictatorial rules of injustice, is that their people cannot rise up against the regimes in revolution. Sure, people are standing up in defiance over the sham elections in Venezuela, but I have little hope that much will come of it. Maduro, unless ousted by the military in a coup, will not leave office any time soon. Even then, the military could simply invoke an even harsher rule, so there is little hope for Venezuela’s rule change.
And that is precisely what the Left in Venezuela wants… and what the Left here wants. Unending rule and power, regardless of how many people will suffer.
To seek any solution other than gun control (which as I’ve said multiple times is not a solution) is a non-starter. Cuomo correctly points out the either-or hypocrisy of the Democrats. They don’t want to make schools safer. They just want to guarantee their own power becomes eternal.
Yet another case of humans trying to be like God.
“Woe to those who enact evil statutes and to those who constantly record unjust decisions.”
Last Sunday, Venezuela held Presidential “elections” in which dictator Nicolas Maduro won with 6 million votes and a 46% turnout rate, according to the government’s official National Electoral Commission. However, it was reported by multiple independent outside observers that over 80% of Venezuelan voters did not turn up to vote.
What makes this “election” an utter sham, aside from the false turnout rates, is the fact that Maduro scheduled the election back in January, giving little time for other candidates to arise and campaign. Even then, Venezuela’s courts banned the Democratic Unity Roundtable, the main opposition to Maduro, from fielding a candidate, instead saying that party members must “each nominate a candidate, forcing the opposition to divide,” according to Breitbart News.
Even the candidates allowed to run were socialists themselves, so there would really be no change in leadership in the country.
Of course, given how illegitimate that election was, the Venezuelan people were not pleased, to say the least. Most of them chose to boycott the election altogether, and when Maduro “won”, chose to hold protests throughout the country.
The Venezuelan newspaper “El Nacional” reported on Tuesday that “protests sprung in at least four states: Carabobo, Tachira, Merida and Bolivar,” according to Breitbart News. El Universal also reported a large protest occurred on Monday afternoon in Nueva Esparta.
Anti-socialist leader Maria Corina Machado wrote on Twitter (translated from Spanish): “Venezuela awoke GROWN, on its FEET. Our people defied the tyranny and DISOBEYED. Today the people are UNITED. The PATH is to advance until we achieve the ouster of the dictator.”
In Caracas, protesters, many of whom were young students, were seen marching through the streets, holding a sign that reads: “There is no time left! The time for the courageous is here, together we are more.”
National broadcaster NTN24 showed a video of the protesters in Caracas, reporting: “’The streets belong to the people, not to the dictator.’ Venezuelans protest against the ‘fraudulent elections’ in Altamira.”
In Aragua state, youth opposition leaders also protested against Maduro. The opposition group “Soy Venezuela” (I am Venezuela) shared some pictures of the protest and wrote on Twitter: “SoyVenezuela in the streets of Aragua on May 21st because the farce of an election held yesterday is more motivation for fighting for our liberty.”
In Nueva Esparta, Margarita University – Unimar students took to the streets, demanding free and fair elections and that Maduro step down. Of course, knowing the character of socialists and mankind in general, it is unlikely someone as evil as Maduro would be so willing to step down from the power he holds.
Unfortunately, not all protests were peaceful ones, with the most violent protests reportedly occurring in San Cristobal, the regional capital of Tachira state, the state that has long been the nation’s hub of socialist resistance. According to Breitbart News: “The mayor of San Cristobal, Daniel Ceballos, has been in prison in Caracas for nearly two years for speaking out against Maduro. By official CNE estimates, over 70 percent of Tachira did not participate in Sunday’s election.”
The Venezuelan outlet Runrunes reported that protesters began blocking roads in San Cristobal, burning debris and amassing tree branches in protest. Police responded to the protests, according to the outlet, with tear gas and rubber bullets. The outlet also reports that a couple of children no older than 14 were struck by some rubber bullets. In the incident, two people were arrested and 8 were injured. El Nacional reports that another teenager was also arrested, bringing the total up to three.
In Bolivar, protesters began banging pots and pans in protest, a common form of protest in South America. Police reportedly “hurled tear gas bombs at the buildings” where the noise was originating in response to the protests.
It is utter chaos happening in Venezuela. This, combined with the fact that Venezuela is economically bankrupt and the people have had to resort to eating their own pets in order to survive, and I can’t help but call into question Bernie Sanders and other Democrats’ mental health in regards to viewing the Socialist nation as a role model for the U.S.
The only real options on the table are that these people are either mentally sick, or evil… maybe both.
When you look at Venezuela, you can see in real time the consequences of Socialism. That is the kind of country the Left wants to rule over here in the United States. Venezuela is precisely what Democrats and Leftists want for us.
The only people who live in luxury are people in the government and those who are friends with people in the government. For all their talks about hating or opposing the 1%, they sure seem to be okay with the MASSIVE gap in standard of living between the 1% and the rest in Venezuela.
At least in the United States, just about anyone can be in the 1%, without needing connections to the government. Granted, that is becoming less and less common, given the damage the Left has already made. For example, Donald Trump, as a real estate mogul, simply HAD to be on the government’s good side in order to build his buildings where he wanted them.
Mark Zuckerberg MUST be friends with people in the government in order to avoid losing his company and his wealth.
The unfortunate reality is that the Left has done plenty of damage to move us in the direction of Socialism. Thankfully, we are nowhere close to where they want us to be. For as much damage as they have already done, it is still possible to live in comfort, even outside of the top 1%, in the U.S. Not only is it possible, but very attainable as well. Those who work hard and smart tend to be successful regardless of what they do.
Unfortunately, the people of Venezuela don’t have that luxury. According to The Guardian, 82% of people in Venezuela live in poverty. Contrast that to the poverty rate in the U.S., which according to PovertyUSA.org, in 2016, stood at 12.7%.
Most people in Venezuela live in poverty, with scarce resources to feed themselves, and the situation will only continue to worsen as the established Socialist power continues to maintain a chokehold on the country.
Whenever Bernie Sanders speaks highly of Venezuela, remember these facts. Remember these facts the next time you hear a liberal say that Trump is a dictator. And remember these facts as you choose who to vote for in future elections. Because, at this point, you will either be voting for people who want to Make America Great Again (or at least claim they do) or people who want to Make America Venezuela Forever.
I will simply end by saying that I pray for the people of Venezuela. It is clear to me that they have woken up and are taking a stand against Socialism altogether. I hope and pray that they will eventually be able to take back their country from the hands of those who have utterly destroyed it and that the lesson of how bad Socialism is remains engrained in their minds going forward.
“The Lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.”
Earlier this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson had a discussion with Democrat Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) regarding gun control. Swalwell wanted to push for “assault weapons buybacks” which would prosecute those who would not comply. Of course, to anyone with half a brain, that is clearly a gun confiscation. But Swalwell knows quite well that calling for such a thing might not be best, particularly for their chances in November.
Swalwell, when Carlson correctly pointed out that he was pushing for confiscation, replied: “I’m not calling for confiscation. What I’m saying is we should invest in the buyback, that we should restrict any weapons that aren’t bought back to gun clubs, hunting clubs, shooting ranges. Keep them there, where it is safe, not on our streets. And if you are caught, just like if you were caught with drugs or anything else, they have probable cause to go into your home and you have one of these weapons, yes, you’d be prosecuted.”
No, your Honor, I didn’t rob the guy, I simply purchased his belongings at gunpoint with payment pending.
Carlson, like the professional he is, read from a USA Today opinion piece written by Swalwell, which says: “We should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons.”
Again, that is clearly gun confiscation, not a buyback. Swalwell, of course, exempts law enforcement and people who guard members of Congress from the buyback. Because, of course the government is the only entity allowed to have guns. That is only ever a good thing, just look at the Soviet U…, or how about Nazi Germa… Or, wait, what about Communist China, North Korea, Venezuela and other remaining socialist/communist nations? They definitely don’t have any sort of murder rates.
Wait, let’s also look at France, which has one of the most strict gun control laws in the world! Wait, you’re telling me that a large group of masked men opened fire on a crowd of people in France? Impossible! It’s extremely difficult to get guns in France! Tougher gun control laws means safer places, don’t they?
Well, let’s ignore that and instead focus on England. They also have severe gun control laws. Sure, murder rates are still really high and people are using knives instead of guns to kill people, but that’s better!... somehow.
We keep going in circles in this debate, never really making any sort of progress. Not that the Left wants any. The only acceptable response to shootings is more gun control to the point of eliminating the 2nd Amendment, or at least rendering it ineffective, in the Left’s mind. When a shooting happens, people blame the gun rather than the gunman. Even more so, they blame an organization meant to protect people’s rights, calling them terrorists despite the fact that they had nothing to do with it.
People accuse the NRA of paying off Republicans, despite the fact that Planned Parenthood pays FAR more money to Democrats. They accuse the NRA of being a terrorist organization, despite the fact that the perpetrators of these shootings are Left-leaning evil people 100% of the time.
Even worse, they accuse gun owners of being part of the shootings, despite that being a ridiculous claim. It’s really no surprise that ignorant people like Scalwell, who’s from California, no less, want to take people’s guns away by force.
In their effort to paint Trump as Hitlerian, it is they who wind up being the actual Nazis. But that really shouldn’t be a surprise either.
Communism, socialism, fascism and Nazism all have one common root: Marxism. They all derive from Marx’s ridiculous notion that people are oppressed under capitalism and that communism liberates people. It’s utter stupidity. Which is precisely why this fits the Left and Democrats so well.
A stupid notion based on unrealistic non-facts is bound to attract those who cannot see the errors of the philosophy.
Taking guns away from good people only leaves them more vulnerable and susceptible to attack. Criminals, by definition, don’t care about laws. If you pass a law that forces people to turn in their guns, that is like Christmas to bad guys. They get to assault, kill or rob people all they want without fear of pushback or a firefight breaking out.
Democrats are a criminal’s best friend. They continuously push for laws that will only affect those who obey the law, continuously push for the innocence of those who commit basic immigration crimes and defend the worst of the bunch. In their defense of MS-13 from Trump, they have shown that even rapists, killers and anarchists are preferable over the typical American family, over blue-collar workers, over law-abiding citizens.
While doing some research, I had come across an article written on The Hill. The title read: “We can change the trend of fatal shootings by voting in November.”
As one can guess from a mainstream media source, this is an article asking people to vote Democrat. The author pretends this issue of shootings is a relatively new issue, particularly an issue specific to the Trump administration.
Let me remind you of something: there were more shootings during Obama’s term than the four previous Presidents combined. According to TruthStreamMedia, who collected this information from information given by Mother Jones’ Investigation: US Mass Shootings, 1982-2015, as well as the Wikipedia page for Mass Shootings and a Wikipedia page for Postal Shootings, President Ronald Reagan had 11 mass shootings in his 8 years in office, with 5 incidents involving the deaths of 8 or more people.
President George H.W. Bush had 12 mass shootings in his 4 years (not a good look for him), with 3 incidents involving the deaths of 8 or more people.
President Bill Clinton had 23 mass shootings in his 8 years, with 4 incidents involving the deaths of 8 or more people.
President George W. Bush had 20 mass shootings in his 8 years, with 5 incidents involving the deaths of 8 or more people.
President Obama, in stark contrast, had 162 mass shootings in 6 years (2009-2015) with 18 incidents with 8 or more deaths.
That wasn’t even his complete term and he had far more mass shootings than his four predecessors combined.
The author of the Hill article insinuates that people are safer with Democrats in control. The evidence proves otherwise. People are never safer with Democrats at the helm. Children in schools are not safer with Democrats in control. Frankly, they are lucky to even survive the womb, nowadays.
Democrats are the worst enemy of the People. The fact that the author of the Hill article thinks Democrats will change the trend of mass shootings would be laughable if the subject wasn’t so tragic.
What is laughable is Scalwell’s attempt at b.s.ing you into believing he’s even remotely honest about what he’s trying to do. It’s a flat-out gun confiscation that he’s pushing. One which would blatantly violate people’s 2nd Amendment rights.
Let me tell you something, Rep. Scalwell. The American people are smart enough to see the bull you are trying to pull. That feeble attempt at justifying and redefining an unconstitutional gun grab, combined with other Leftists’ efforts to prioritize animalistic illegal immigrant gang members, prioritizing the death of children in the womb over the care of our Nation’s veterans, and the constant push for destroying the economic stability we see with the Trump administration will utterly doom the Democrats in November.
I’ve often said this, but this is a prime opportunity to repeat myself: there is zero reason for anyone to vote Democrat at any point. The mask has come off and the beast reveals itself. And it is ugly. The Democrats are among the scum of the Earth and darn proud of it. So much so, in fact, that they want to force the rest of the country to join them in their filth.
From ramming LGBT “rights” down our throat in every movie, including Disney movies, to promoting the deaths and violence against prominent right-wing people like Anne Coulter, to wishing for the gruesome end of Donald Trump, these people are the deplorable ones. Their hearts are filled with evil, and their mouths are thirsty for blood.
Like a vampire, the Democrats will suck the blood (money) out of you and enslave you. But at least vampires offer cool powers. All the Democrats offer is misery.
“The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.”
It’s been reported lately that the FBI had planted a spy in the Trump campaign, further signifying the Deep State’s desire to get rid of Donald Trump before he was even President. Even as a candidate, he posed a threat to the Establishment, which is a no no, in their minds.
Trump even tweeted: “Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a ‘hot’ Fake News story. If true – all time biggest political scandal!”
So, in a flimsy attempt of damage control, the fake news media, particularly the Washington Post and NYT, released stories saying the FBI’s intentions were to “protect” Trump, not spy on him.
The Washington Post’s headline: “The FBI didn’t use an informant to go after Trump. They used one to protect him.”
Really? Let me ask how this line would hold up: “You got it all wrong, Your Honor. I didn’t rob that bank to steal the money; I robbed the bank to keep the money from being stolen by other people.” Or “You’re wrong, Mr. Principal. I didn’t stuff little Jimmy in a locker to be mean to him. I stuffed him in there to protect him from other bullies.”
The Post article was written by, well, what do you know, a former FBI agent. It reads: “Trump and his backers are wrong about what it means that the FBI reportedly was using a confidential source to gather information early in its investigation of possible campaign ties to Russia. The investigation started out as a counterintelligence probe, not a criminal one. And relying on a covert source rather than a more intrusive method of gathering information suggests that the FBI may have been acting cautiously – perhaps too cautiously – to protect the campaign not undermine it.”
Oh, so the FBI was only trying to protect the Trump campaign? From foreign intelligence? How nice of them. But let me ask one question: if the FBI was only looking to protect the Trump campaign from foreign intelligence, why didn’t they do the same with the Clinton campaign?
Why didn’t they plant a spy in the Clinton campaign as well? If the sole purpose of the FBI spy was to look into foreign intelligence in order to protect a campaign, why not do it for both campaigns? Surely Obama would be more interested in protecting the Clinton campaign than the Trump campaign. Why would he only “help” Trump’s campaign and not Hillary’s? Does he not like Hillary? Did he want her to lose? Why only put a spy in Trump’s campaign if the entire reason for a spy was for national security reasons?
Of course, you and I both know the answer to these questions. The FBI didn’t spy on the Trump campaign to protect it. They were spying on it to destroy it, if at all possible. Which clearly didn’t work.
Now, what did the NYT say about this? Here’s their headline: “FBI Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims.”
If the FBI knew the Trump campaign had ties to Russia, wouldn’t that have made a major headline at some point during the election? This whole “Russia ties to Trump” only started AFTER Trump won, not before. If the FBI had even somewhat of a hunch that Trump had ties to Russia, it would certainly have leaked to the press.
The funny thing is that the Times says this: “Details about the informant’s relationship with the FBI remain scant. It is not clear how long the relationship existed and whether the FBI paid the source or assigned the person to other cases.”
So the MSM has next to no facts regarding the FBI spy, his or her relationship with the FBI, or the information he or she gathered, but still wants to say the intentions were only to protect Trump.
Read those headlines again. They read matter-of-factly, don’t they? As if to say: “No, Trump. You’re wrong! The FBI was only trying to protect you because they’re the good guys and were only looking into your ties to Russia. They were not focused on you.”
Those are CLAIMS the Post and NYT are making, and yet, both are entirely wrong based on fact and logic.
Again, if the purpose of having a spy in the Trump campaign was to investigate possible ties to Russia in order to protect the campaign, why wouldn’t they do the same for the Clinton campaign?
So far, without having the FBI or a special counsel looking into it, we have found far more evidence of the Clinton campaign rigging the 2016 election (both for the primaries and the general election). We have found more Russian collusion within the Clinton campaign. We have found more foreign intelligence used against Trump than we have found foreign intelligence used against Hillary. Remember Christopher Steele? The author of the Golden Showers dossier? British.
If the FBI felt it necessary to spy on the Trump campaign to protect it from foreign entities, why didn’t they do the same for the Clinton campaign? And if people in the Clinton campaign knew the campaign was dealing with foreign entities, why didn’t they blow the whistle or inform the FBI or DOJ? If such a thing is a threat to the campaign, why wouldn’t they talk?
I feel it’s unnecessary to be asking all of these questions when the answer is as clear as glass. The FBI wasn’t looking to protect Trump – but rather destroy him. The FBI didn’t put a spy in the Clinton campaign because Clinton is part of the Establishment. You don’t go about spying on your own people like that. And even if you do, you certainly don’t bring what they are doing to people’s attention, much less prosecute or bash them for it.
This is the Deep State we are talking about. The Obama DOJ. The Obama FBI. There was no justice with Obama’s DOJ and FBI – only corruption.
Even then, I find it hard to use the word “corruption”. It’s the Deep State. There is no corruption there. Why? Because you can’t corrupt what was never honest. What was never moral. What was never right. Frankly, corruption within the Deep State would mean delineating from the status quo of the Establishment, which no member does.
The Establishment, for as long as it’s been around, has always been immoral. Its very definition is unjust. And they could never allow someone like Trump to be in power. Never mind what they think of him. Never mind that they believe he is brutish and stupid. That’s not what bothers them. Frankly, they are ok with brutish and stupid people. The elected bunch of the Deep State DEPENDS on brutish and stupid people. No, what they truly hate the guy for, what drives them to destroy him isn’t his attitude or behavior or demeanor. It’s his status as an outsider.
A man who has lived his entire life as an outsider cannot be allowed to come in and run the place. He’s meant to stay an outsider. He’s meant to remain out of power. He’s meant to deal with the things THEY want to implement on people, whatever strikes their fancy. He’s meant to SUBMIT to the Deep State as pretty much everyone else is meant to. And he’s not supposed to call them out. He’s not supposed to let people know that there are people in power with more control than civilians believe.
It’s those things that tick off the Deep State the most. The fact that he’s an outsider coming in and not only running the place, but doing it SUCCESSFULLY AND WITH TONS OF SUPPORT. But perhaps what ticks them off the most is not just that he’s an outsider. It’s that they haven’t beaten him thus far.
Every attempt at thwarting him, destroying him and his reputation, has resulted in utter failure. The Establishment has never had so much trouble getting rid of someone in the past. They would either convert them and make them part of the Establishment, like with Lindsay Graham, or scare them into silence.
Not one of their tactics has worked so far, and that is what annoys them the most.
So, they do what they can with what they’ve got. They spy on their opponent and disregard any consequence that may follow in their public view. They don’t honestly care. They want Trump gone through whatever means necessary.
The only problem with that is what happens if they succeed. If they take out Trump through illegitimate means, that will enrage much of America. No Democrat would be elected for a generation. And if they take out Pence as well, let me tell you, there is a reason the 2nd Amendment still exists.
While I hope it never comes to it, if pushed around enough, the American people will take up arms against a tyrannical government once again.
That being said, there isn’t much, if any, indication of such a thing coming to pass. Like I said, the Deep State’s attempts at destroying Trump have all ended in failure. Not to mention that the more they fight him, the more people will be willing to support him. Meaning, the more people will be willing to vote Democrats (and RINOs) out of Congress. That only chips away at the power and influence they have.
Regardless, with all of that said, it’s honestly funny seeing the MSM trying to defend the FBI’s actions in such a way. First of all, those actions are indefensible. Second, those headlines indicate a very flimsy attempt at defending this. Honestly, who would believe this garbage?
Well, to their credit, it’s entirely possible that more people will honestly believe this trash than their attempts at protecting MS-13.
“Your tongue plots destruction, like a sharp razor, you worker of deceit.”
The stupidity of the American Left simply cannot be overstated. Despite the fact that Trump’s “animals” comments was clearly made to characterize the illegal immigrant criminal gang MS-13, and some MSM sources have had to issue corrections saying Trump was referring to MS-13, the Left has chosen to double down against Trump’s comments and chose to DEFEND the criminal gang.
In a press interview with C-SPAN, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said: “We believe – some of us who are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service – that we are all God’s children, there is a spark of divinity among every person on Earth, and that we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person and as we recognize our responsibilities with that spark of divinity within us. And so, when the President of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘These aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?”
This is truly a gift from God. There is so much I can talk about here, I’m getting giddy.
Ok, let’s start with the glaringly obvious: Trump was not referring to all illegal immigrants here. He was referring, as is painfully obvious, to the criminal gang MS-13.
Do you know what MS-13’s motto is? “Kill, Rape, Control”. Doesn’t get much more animalistic than that.
Next, who in the world is Nancy Pelosi to accuse Trump of not believing in “the spark of divinity”? Who in the world is she to pretend to side with God? SHE SUPPORTS ABORTION! How is it that she defends animals like MS-13, saying they have a “spark of divinity” and still condemns pre-born babies to death, claiming they are not alive?
And by the way, if she were even close to being a Christian, which she tries to imitate here, she would know very well that there’s no such thing as a “spark of divinity” in humans. That would mean to even somewhat equate humanity to God, which is blasphemous. We are not divine. Quite the opposite, as humanity is naturally evil. So I don’t know where she gets this “spark of divinity” garbage from, but it’s certainly not from Christ or the Bible.
Not to mention she talks about the worth and dignity of a person. Again, I raise the issue of abortion. Why aren’t pre-born babies considered to have worth? Why aren’t they afforded any sort of dignity?
And she’s not the only lunatic Leftist to defend MS-13. Leftist freelance writer Rob Rousseau tweeted: “I would rather my daughter dated a member of MS-13 than a member of the Republican Party.”
It should be noted that Rousseau does not actually have a daughter. And thank the Lord for that, because she would be absolutely destroyed by such a thing.
Let me remind you what MS-13 does. They rape women, they beat them, they disfigure them until they are unrecognizable, they kill them and they dismember them. If an MS-13 gang member met Rousseau at his daughter’s request, the gang member would be the one holding the shotgun. Beyond that, he would use it to rob the guy. And that’s a best case scenario.
Honestly, to call these gang members “animals” is an insult to actual animals. I don’t fear my neighbor’s dog. I don’t fear going to the zoo. I would fear going to the neighborhoods these demons are occupying. I would fear my non-existent daughter dating a member of MS-13.
Thankfully, as far as I know, I don’t live anywhere near such a bad neighborhood, I live in a state that is not terrified of allowing its citizens to get guns, and I don’t plan on absolutely failing as a parent.
But returning to these idiots’ comments, I so enjoy seeing them defend such blatant evil. And this is vastly different from defending abortion, another blatant evil. They can at least b.s. their way into making abortion seem right. I’ve literally seen someone (can’t remember who) tweeting on Mother’s Day that abortion is “an act of love”. It’s ridiculous, but they can somewhat sell the idea to people. There is nothing they can possibly say about MS-13 that can in any way make them seem like good, or at least innocent people being targeted by Trump.
Even people who regularly buy into the b.s. they sell won’t take the bait for this. Even everyday liberals can see that defending MS-13 is not right.
I may have next to no faith in people, but I have enough to believe they aren’t stupid or wicked enough to defend MS-13 en masse. At the end of the day, MS-13 is still a gang. The only people who will defend a gang are members of said gang.
Let’s be honest here, the Left has royally screwed this one up. They had a glimmer of hope of defending MS-13 by telling people Trump was attacking all immigrants, or at least all illegal immigrants. The Left can always count on people’s ignorance. But the vast majority of people, at this point, can clearly see that Trump was just talking about MS-13.
Frankly, even if he was referring to all illegal immigrants, I would somewhat agree with him, since there are a lot of illegals who have raped and killed Americans in recent time.
But the Left doesn’t even have that much. And yet, they have chosen to double down on this? That’s the equivalent of having 20 and asking the dealer to “hit” you in a game of Blackjack. Only worse, since these people risk losing MORE seats than they will likely lose in November.
As a summary, these are the things the Left’s agenda seems to be: Re-nuke North Korea, reenter Iran nuke deal, raise your taxes, make you unemployed again, take away your guns, force your wife and daughter to use the same restroom as a grown man, betray Israel, support Hamas, rebuild ISIS, bring in more illegals, support MS-13, take away your free speech, force you to pay for Planned Parenthood, destroy the NRA, spy on conservatives and impeach Trump and Pence if possible based on no evidence whatsoever.
And they think a blue wave is coming?
“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.”
On Wednesday, President Trump held a roundtable discussion in the White House on California’s sanctuary state policies.
During this discussion with Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, Trump made sure to call out a specific group of very bad people.
Here’s just a part of the transcript from the discussion:
Sheriff Mims: “But now ICE is the only law enforcement agency that cannot use our databases to find the bad guys. They cannot come in and talk to people in our jail, unless they reach a certain threshold…”
President Trump: “It’s a disgrace. Okay? It’s a disgrace.”
Mims: “It’s a disgrace.”
Trump: “And we’re suing on that, and we’re working hard, and I think it will all come together, because people want it to come together. It’s so ridiculous. The concept that we’re even talking about is ridiculous…”
Mims: “Thank you. There could be an MS-13 member I know about – if they don’t reach a certain threshold, I cannot tell ICE about it.”
Trump: “We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in – and we’re stopping a lot of them – but we’re taking people out of the country. You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people. These are animals. And we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before. And because of the weak laws, they come in fast, we get them, we release them, we get them again, we bring them out. It’s crazy.”
Read that one more time and tell me what the context of the situation is. They are clearly talking about MS-13 gang members, right?
Well, according to every news media under the sun, he was referring to ALL immigrants as animals.
From the Huffington Post: “Trump once again referred to immigrants as subhuman, saying, ‘These aren’t people. These are animals.’”
From the Business Insider: “Trump says some unauthorized immigrants ‘aren’t people’ but ‘animals’ who will be rapidly kicked out of the US.”
From NowThis: “’These aren’t people. These are animals.’ – The President of the United States on undocumented immigrants.”
From the NYT: “Trump lashed out at undocumented immigrants during a White House meeting, calling those trying to breach the country’s borders ‘animals’”.
I could go on, but you get the idea.
They all want to make it seem as though Trump is attacking illegal immigrants. Or even simply immigrants, since the Left is ignorant enough to rope people like me in with illegals.
This is your typical case of the media taking something entirely out of context and spreading even more egregious fake news.
Of course, because of the fake news, people have taken to once again try to compare Trump to Hitler. But of course, the truth is glaringly obvious: THEY ARE FAR CLOSER TO HITLER THAN TRUMP COULD EVER BE!
That being said, that is a discussion for another time. For now, I simply wish to refer you to the despicable behavior the MSM has been showing as of late.
Today, they have been defending MS-13 gang members, saying they are not animals. MS-13 has a horrid reputation for gang rapes, kidnappings, dismemberment and homicides. The families of some of their victims even attended the State of the Union address, upon having been invited by President Trump.
Earlier in the week, they were defending Hamas terrorists seeking to breach Israel’s border and exterminate the Jews. Frankly, the media looked like Hitler’s personal news source during their reporting on the Gaza riots.
Before that, they were siding with and supporting Iran during Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the horrendous Obama-era Iran nuclear deal, even showing respect and support for the Ayatollah Khomeini reading “Fire and Fury”.
In the span of a couple of weeks, the media has shown far more treasonous behavior than they could possibly say Trump has.
But that is just who these people are. They are hateful of this country and wish to see it torn to shreds. They support terrorist nations gaining nuclear weapons while hoping more people die by taking away good people’s guns. They support terrorist organizations trying to wage war on Israel and the Jewish people while calling the Israeli forces the terrorists. They support evil gang members destroying people and their families while trying to equate them to other illegal immigrants and all immigrants as a whole.
This is despicable and outrageous behavior coming from these jackals. And then, they turn around and wonder why the Democrats’ lead in the midterms has all but disappeared and why Trump’s approval numbers are skyrocketing.
The American people see the evils that the media is spreading, but in the media’s stupidity, they choose to double down on it. They continue to spread lies and oppose one of the best presidents this country has ever had, while continuing to support entities in the world who literally call for the death of the United States and continuously make threats directed at Israel.
Is it really any wonder why I call these people evil? THEY CONTINUOUSLY SUPPORT WHAT IS EVIL!
Abortion? You bet they support that.
Islam? Check. And don’t even pretend it isn’t evil. Not all of them may be terrorists but not every German was a Nazi during the 40s and look how that turned out.
Gay marriage and transgenderism? More the latter than the former. Since gay marriage is now legal, the Left has all but left regular gay people behind in favor of supporting mentally-deranged people who believe gender is fluid.
Pre-marital sex? Have been for ages. And they wonder why people sexually abuse others. When sex is meant more to be fun than about the expression of marriage and their love and their wish to have a family, then problems such as these arise… as well as loonies who think an answer to this problem is asking their baby for consent before changing them.
The media has long ceased to be about journalism. It is now a source for propaganda. A source whose only purpose is further destroying all that is good and holy in the world. They have destroyed the definition of marriage, family, life, and even sanity.
Everything the Left touches is destroyed and perverted.
And that most certainly includes the words of a good person such as Trump. They twist and manipulate his words to mean what they never meant. One last time: no, Trump wasn’t talking about immigrants. He wasn’t talking about illegal immigrants as a whole either. He was talking about despicable trash that can hardly be considered human. He was talking about the illegal immigrant criminal gang MS-13 and the horrible things they do to people and their families.
And, as a side note, I absolutely hate the fact that the media continues to equate illegal immigrants to legal immigrants. I’m a legal immigrant (now, a proud U.S. citizen) who came here with my family at a relatively early age. We paid our dues, waited our time and obeyed every rule and law to gain access for permanent residence. I won’t go into all the details, but to summarize, we did everything the way you are supposed to.
Illegals come here and somehow get preferential treatment from the Democrats. I’m not asking for preferential treatment from anyone. I’m asking how is it that a political party prefers those who disobey the laws over the ones who do things right?
The answer, simply, is the topic of this article: they are evil. They do their absolute best to disincentivize people regarding everything. They want people to depend solely on the government because that means more power and more votes for them. Someone who can afford to go through the immigration process legally likely doesn’t need government assistance once they are here. They HATE people who don’t need the government. Thus, they HATE legal immigrants.
And all of this hatred, all of this evil, comes from the lack of Jesus Christ in their hearts. I’ll simply leave it at that, particularly since this was meant to simply be a small side note and it looks like I’m about to write a separate article entirely with how much time I’m spending on that particular subject.
To recap: MS-13 are animals, Hamas are monsters, Iran is terroristic, the media is propaganda and the Left as a whole is evil.
“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
One of the bigger bits of news as of late has been the riots happening at the Gaza Strip by the border to Israel. In that time, Israeli forces have killed just over 60 people, 50 of whom were Hamas terrorists, according to a senior Hamas official.
If you’ve been following this story at all, you also know that the media has made it their mission to make Israel look like the bad guys and the rioters look like “peaceful protesters”… despite the fact that they are armed and dangerous and this was orchestrated by Hamas themselves.
This isn’t a surprise, since the Left and the MSM hate Israel and Jewish people almost as much as Hitler did. Their coverage of the Palestinian rioters as being the good guys is evidence enough of just what side they are choosing.
In their fake news coverage, they have reported that the Israelis are randomly killing people, when nothing could be further from the truth. Senior Hamas official Salah Albardawil admitted in an interview that 50 of the dead in the riots were members of Hamas.
So mostly terrorists are the targets of Israel’s forces. How are they the bad guys again?
NPR reportedly asked a Gazan with a kite with a swastika on it why they were flying the swastika. According to the guy, “The Jews go crazy when you mention Hitler.” And when asked if he knows the Israelis are using the swastikas to discredit the Gazans, the guy replied: “It’s what we mean. We want them to burn.”
How are the Israeli forces the bad guys again?
It’s absolutely sickening that the media would portray Israel as the bad guys here. They are simply defending their border from people THAT WANT TO KILL THEM!
Again, I really shouldn’t be so surprised. The Left has always sided with Islam over Israel and the Jewish people. Israel represents everything they despise. It represents nationalism and a sense of patriotism. A doctrine that people should follow a common set of values and laws, provided those values and laws are morally good.
And the Left simply can’t stand it. They don’t understand that, without a common set of values and laws, society would cease to exist.
It’s why I’m baffled when the New York Times celebrates Karl Marx’s birthday and claims he was right. His theories are laughable and erroneous, and worse, have led to the deaths of hundreds of millions of people. Communism, Fascism, Socialism and Nazism all are relatively different takes on Marxism. All have led to death and destruction.
Marx’s theory, in a nutshell, is that it’s possible to go from an all-powerful state to having no state whatsoever. In other words, to go from full-on communism to full-on anarchy and statelessness in the blink of an eye. It’s ridiculous, unrealistic and illogical.
To do that would mean to destroy the fabric of society altogether, and yet, that is what the Left wants, seemingly.
And Israel is the perfect example of the complete opposite of what the Left wants. Well, maybe apart from the United States.
In their minds, neither Israel nor the United States should be around. But they don’t get to decide that. The United States and Israel both have the right to defend themselves from entities who seek to destroy them. But Israel is the one that is in more immediate danger.
They are a tiny nation surrounded by the Muslim World. To their Southwest, they have Egypt. To their East, Jordan. To the North, they have Lebanon and to their Northeast, they have Syria. And these are just the countries closest to their borders. Farther East, they have Iraq and Iran. Farther Southeast, they have Saudi Arabia. Farther Southwest, they have Libya.
Israel is deep within the Muslim World because that is where the Promised Land: Jerusalem, resides. That is precisely where God’s chosen people should be. And, because they are God’s chosen people, they have every right in the world to defend themselves and be a sovereign nation. No one, not Hitler, not the Palestinians and most certainly not the Mainstream Media and the Left have any sort of right to deny them that.
Not that I expect them to change in the least. The Left is full of sordid people who want to become like God. Not one of them will ever get even remotely close.
They will continue to paint the Palestinians as the good guys just seeking entrance and “refuge”. They will continue to paint the Israeli forces as terrorists slaughtering random, innocent and unarmed people who get too close. As always, reality is not what they make it seem.
The Palestinian rioters don’t seek refuge or shelter or anything of the sort. They seek to exterminate Israel and the Jewish people. The Israeli forces aren’t killing random people. They are killing Hamas terrorists who are well-armed and throwing other people in to be fellow martyrs if possible.
Palestinians are utter garbage. They are reprobates who have no right to deny Israel their sovereignty. They have no right to incite these riots and aim to storm Israel’s border and destroy the Jewish people.
Israel won’t stand for this. The United States of America won’t stand for this. But forget either of those entities. The Palestinians shouldn’t have to worry about either nation. What they should worry about, what their hearts should be utterly terrified about, is the Lord God Almighty.
Israel’s wrath, America’s wrath and their powers combined cannot offer anything remotely close to what God can. The Lord is a loving God. As such, He will punish those who threaten and attempt to destroy His chosen people.
“I will execute great vengeance on them with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon them.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
