I have often spoken about the sort of damage the Left has done to science itself in a number of ways, from obliterating biological truths about sex and gender to discarding scientific proof of life in the womb to making assertions of anthropogenic climate change that are not at all based on scientific evidence. The Left has made a joke of science, but even more than that, they have made a cult religion out of it to the point where questioning any part of it is seen as a cardinal offense.
No other time was that true than throughout the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, when we were told that if we had any sort of challenging questions regarding the data we were being presented with, we were on a malicious mission to kill people’s parents and grandparents (meanwhile, Gov. Cuomo essentially was doing that following his March 25th EO sending sick people to nursing and retirement homes). We were told that we had to listen to the “experts” because they had the “data” and the “science” behind them.
However, as Michael Fumento from Just the News recently pointed out, there were a number of instances when the “experts” were flat-out wrong about what they were saying regarding the virus, as well as the data they were presenting.
Before I actually get to those instances, of which there are ten, allow me to preface all of this by pointing out a simple, yet oft-forgotten aspect of science: it is SUPPOSED to be challenged.
Man is not perfect. This means that we are capable of erring. Various sciences are studied by people who err. People used to believe in geo-centricity, the belief that the Earth was the center of the universe, until it was discovered that it was not. It used to be “settled science” that the Sun revolved around the Earth, but because science is about challenging conventional wisdom, people sought to find if that was actually true or not and it was discovered that it was not.
Science isn’t science if it is not challenged and questions aren’t raised. This is the damage the Left makes to the practice, as they use its good name for the purposes of “settling facts” that benefit them politically. It’s why climatologists who dare challenge the idea of anthropogenic climate change, though they are doing their defined jobs as scientists, are blacklisted and fired because of their challenges. The Left, in owning the pillar of power of the sciences, can push out people who challenge what they want seen as scientific fact, even though the very purpose of science is to challenge conventional wisdom to weigh it against objective reality.
As with anthropogenic climate change, the Left has made it their mission to ensure that the “experts” were practically seen as Jesus’ apostles by the public when they talked about the “data” and the “science” regarding the Chinese coronavirus, all for the purposes of getting people so scared that they will comply with whatever the Left wanted (and it clearly worked, as we shut down our entire economy for a few months, leaving millions unemployed).
However, because man is capable of erring, it is no surprise that the data the “experts” brought in was incomplete and ripe for rebuke and revisitation.
Without further ado, let me share with you some of the times the “experts” were wrong that Fumento shared in his Just the News article (not all of the ten instances will be written here because I don’t want to make this article insanely long).
First, the threat level. Back on January 21st, the day of the first Chinese coronavirus case found in the U.S., Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared on Newsmax TV to talk about the virus and how much of a threat it posed to the American public. In that interview, he said: “Obviously, you need to take it seriously and do the kind of things the CDC and the Department of Homeland Security is doing. But this is not a major threat to the people of the United States, and this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.”
Of course, a few months later, that idea was entirely changed and the CDC director said that the virus was the “greatest public health crisis” to strike our nation “in more than 100 years.”
Now, I won’t be too harsh on Fauci here for the simple reason that the data was very much insufficient by that point to determine with any level of certainty if the virus was going to be a big deal. The virus originated in China and we all know that they are not a reliable or trustworthy bunch, and we now know they were hiding things from us for a very long time, to the point where some believe the virus was first found in Wuhan in AUGUST OF 2019. But regardless of whether or not China was lying to us, the fact remains that the data was incomplete and no one of sound mind would disagree with me here.
We didn’t know, back in late January, how bad it would get. And yet, we are supposed to take all the data given to us as 100% true and verified, even if it is changed and that new data is supposed to be taken as 100% true and verified.
It simply does not compute to operate like that.
Moving to another example, there was the masks debacle where the Surgeon General of the United States claimed masks were “NOT effective in preventing general public from catching” the Chinese coronavirus. Following that, the CDC said that you should wear a mask if you are sick or are going to be near someone who is sick, and now, the guideline is that people should wear masks regardless of their health when they are around others.
The third example is the asymptomatic transmission declaration by the WHO, when Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said that it was “very rare” for asymptomatic people to spread the disease, when that was one of the biggest worries surrounding the virus: that we would unknowingly and asymptomatically be carrying the virus and we could unwillingly be infecting our loved ones, particularly our elders. The data even went so far as to actually show that there hasn’t been a single documented case of asymptomatic carriers spreading the disease, so it’s more than just “very rare” – it’s outright unheard of.
Then there is also the mortality rate, which used to be 3.4% towards the beginning of the pandemic and now sits at around 0.26%. We used to think this was extremely deadly (by certain standards) and nothing like the flu, but now it’s not all too different from the flu in terms of mortality rate. Yes, it’s still higher than the flu’s mortality rate, but considering the fact that non-COVID deaths are being counted as COVID deaths, I’d wager to say that the mortality rate should actually be considerably lower than 0.26% and be closer to the flu, if not even lower than that.
Which brings me to the cause of death, another example brought up by Fumento, since there has been outright proof of non-COVID deaths, such as gunshot wounds, being counted towards COVID deaths. There is also the fact that Dr. Birx said that they were counting people who died “with” the virus as people who died “to” the virus and the fact that Medicare began to provide a 20% bonus for naming the Chinese coronavirus as the main cause of death, which did nothing but give hospitals and morticians a financial incentive to count anything and everything as death to Chinese coronavirus.
Not to mention that the vast majority of deaths are from people 65 and older, with only 7% of COVID-19 deaths coming from people who did not have pre-existing conditions, meaning that 93% of those who died of the Chinese coronavirus (whether with it or from it) also had underlying conditions that could also have contributed to, or even be the main cause of, the actual death of a person.
Another aspect of the “data” the “experts” gave us, particularly early on, was the model that showed over 2,000,000 deaths in the U.S. and over 500,000 in the U.K., which served as the basis for locking things down and going into quarantine. It was found out not too long after that the model didn’t take into account any sort of action by the government and was based on literally nothing being done about the virus which was not a realistic scenario. People would have done something about it, from government officials to businesses themselves, in order to keep people from dying. Those figures were entirely unrealistic and yet were used as the basis and the reason for shutting everything down.
The funny thing is that the professor who made that model, Neil Ferguson, recently said that if the U.K. had locked down just a week earlier, half of the deaths wouldn’t have happened, though he never shared any data that would indicate such a thing. 2020 is the year of 20/20 hindsight, it seems.
And of course, my argument against Ferguson’s claim is that, even if he did actually bring data that would point to it, as I have already established: data is not to be taken as 100% fact 100% of the time. Everyone operated using the data available at the time – data that was not complete at the time, either.
We need to stop pretending like scientific data is equivalent to the Word of God in terms of validity and truth.
And this is why I say that the Left has made a cult religion out of science. Any sort of data presented today, even if it is refuted and cast aside tomorrow, is to be taken as 100% fact and anyone questioning it is an unscientific buffoon who can barely read. We are supposed to blindly trust these “experts” because of nothing apart from the fact that they have the label of “experts”, even as they are proven wrong time and time again.
We are supposed to blindly trust the word of people who likely have an agenda. I say this because doctors and nurses were mounting “counter-protests” against the lockdown protests, saying protesters were putting themselves and others at risk, yet have supported and in some cases JOINED the George Floyd protests featuring barely any of the safety guidelines detailed by the CDC regarding social distancing and wearing masks. And the people wearing masks were often Antifa rioters. Nevertheless, we are supposed to treat their word like the Gospel of Jesus Christ Himself.
We are supposed to accept what these people say as the absolute truth even if scientific evidence shows to be contrary to what they are saying (i.e. anthropogenic climate change).
The Left has turned the institution of science into a religious cult, where you are deemed as an outcast and a freak if you show any semblance of dissent or even reason. Actual scientists don’t have an agenda. Actual scientists review the evidence and data and try to challenge it to weigh it against objective truth. It’s how science has always operated and how we have made the discoveries that we have.
But actual scientists no longer get the spotlight. They no longer get their findings published by mainstream sources. They hardly even manage to keep their jobs wherever they might work if they show dissent to the established Leftist narrative surrounding their fields of study. Either agree with the Left and spread the narrative, even if it is not scientifically found, or be severely punished for doing the right thing and remaining objective.
It’s not even about politics, as the Left has destroyed climatologists who don’t like Trump at all just because they dared step outside of the collective Leftist thinktank. It’s about power for the Left and anyone who disagrees with them at any capacity is seen as a threat to said power. This is the case just about everywhere, not just the “scientific” community.
This is the damage the Left has done to science. They have perverted it to the point where it’s no different from a cult, where “prophets” like the teen climate puppet can emerge, not because they are backed by science, but because they are backed by George Soros and Bill Gates, as well as the Leftist mainstream media which carries the Leftist narratives.
As I have said countless times, the Left must be defeated in every way, in every pillar of power.

The term “systemic racism” has been a favorite amongst Leftists in recent time, as well as the idea to “defund the police”, as communists have ravaged and destroyed black-owned businesses and vandalized and destroyed statues of abolitionists all in the name of Black Lives Matter, not the idea, but the LGBT organization (read the BLM’s “What We Believe” page to find that they intend to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure” and that they “foster a queer-affirming network” to find that it’s nothing but a Leftist LGBT org).
These communists decry racism and the police as they destroy places of work for black people and violently attack, to the point of killing, in some cases, black police officers and those who do not adhere to their ideologies. They cry about police brutality being rampant even though the first thing that comes to their mind when they are in any sort of trouble (which they often times bring on themselves when they assault other people) is to call the very police they believe is systematically and foundationally racist, corrupt and rotten.
However, the hypocrisy does not end there, as John Nolte from Breitbart News has a fantastic article regarding the Democrat Party’s systemic racism.
Which brings us to the title of this article. If one is to believe that this country is systemically racist, one can’t help but look at the Left as they are the ones in control of much of it. As I have stated in previous articles, they control many of the pillars of power in this country (and around the world, but let’s focus on the U.S. for now). Nolte points out, without necessarily talking about such pillars of power, that the Left is very much in control of the systemic racism that could be pointed at, if at all.
In a series of facts, Nolte makes a number of notes. First of all, if America’s system is built strictly for the benefit of white people, then how come Jews, black Nigerians, Indian Americans and Asians all are generally more successful than white people? They also are imprisoned at lower rates than white people.
While prisons do tend to have a majority black population (the 1994 crime bill, written by Joe Biden and signed by Bill Clinton, two Democrats, can be to thank for that), black people also tend to commit a lot of crimes. However, as we know, at least part of the reason is because of the Left’s programming of black people to feel and act in a certain way. When you feel like you are a victim and the whole world is against you, you tend to justify and excuse things you might otherwise have not.
Some more facts Nolte shares include the following:
The idea that black people are treated differently than white people because of their skin color is simply fiction created by the Left to sow discord among black people in an effort to incite a race war (which would then become a class war as well, which is classic Marxism).
However, even if you wanted to pretend that there is systemic racism, and there are people who believe that there is such a thing, then how come the majority of police brutality tragedies happen where Democrats run things? How is it that wherever there are cases of “systemic racism”, the people in charge of the system are usually Leftists?
Nolte made a relatively short list of controversial deaths of African Americans at the hands of police officers going back three years and a few that are older that made national news.
He names sixteen black Americans killed by police officers (whether they were justified or not was irrelevant for the purposes of this list) and fourteen of those sixteen cases were in cities where a Democrat was/is in charge of the police and judicial system.
Rayshard Brooks was killed (justifiably) in Atlanta, Georgia; Atlanta is run by Democrats. George Floyd was killed (unjustifiably) in Minneapolis, Minnesota; both the city and state are run by Democrats. Breonna Taylor was killed in Louisville, Kentucky; both the city and state are run by Democrats. Eric Garner was killed in New York, New York; both the city and state are run by Democrats. Freddie Gray was killed in Baltimore, Maryland; both the city and state are run by Democrats (and they are particularly corrupt ones).
If there is systemic racism in the cities where these black people were killed (and, of course, I didn’t even mention all of them), then why are Democrats doing nothing about it? They’ve had years and years to do something about it. The last time a Republican was mayor of Atlanta was in 1879. The last time a Republican was mayor of Louisville was in 1969. The last time a Republican was mayor of Baltimore was in 1967. The last time a Republican was mayor of Minneapolis was on December 31st, 1973. I specify the date because the guy was mayor for a single day and was succeeded by a Democrat the following day. Before then, the last time a Republican was mayor was 1961.
Some of the most notorious killings of black people by police officers happened in Democrat-run cities. If there is systemic racism, it is brought about by the Democrat Party.
Moving on, however, we also have another pillar of power: entertainment. Nolte lists a number of Leftist celebrities who have recently come under fire by the Leftist mob. There is, for example, Meghan Markle’s friend Jessica Mulroney whose reality tv show was canceled after she was called out on “textbook white privilege”, after having allegedly made threats against a black writer and influencer.
There is also the case of The Flash co-star Hartley Sawyer, who made controversial and offensive tweets years ago and was hounded for them.
There is also the now-deleted video from a number of Hollywood celebrities who “took responsibility” because they seemingly tolerated offensive jokes and “remained silent” about racial injustice which makes you think there must be an awful lot of racism in Hollywood for a lot of their stars to be “taking responsibility” for not having spoken out about it.
I mean, we already knew there are rapists in Hollywood who have only recently been exposed, such as Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, and that these Leftist celebrities kept their mouths shut about it even as countless women (and in some cases, men and underage boys and girls) have been made victims by those monsters (and prominent anti-Trumper Meryl Streep was great friends with Weinstein and called him a “god”), so it’s not too hard to imagine that there are also rampant racists in Hollywood. These are Leftists, after all. Racism courses through their veins.
Nolte also made sure to note that, over the last nine years living in the rural South, he has only heard of one racial remark (he’s white) when some dude suggested he name his black dog “Obama.” That is the only sort of racism that he has seen or experienced in the South and it was just a dumb remark that the guy apologized for immediately afterwards when he saw Nolte react negatively towards the remark.
But if numerous celebrities came together to make a video about all the racist remarks they heard and tolerated, or even the outright racial injustices they saw and said nothing about, just how much is racism running amok in Hellywood?
Now, of course, it’s just as easy to assume these celebrities didn’t actually encounter much, if any, racism and were just virtue signaling for the Leftist cause, which is certainly possible, but then they also can be called out for exploiting racial issues for personal gain, namely clout (popularity, for those who have never heard the term before). Calling them out on exploiting racial issues for clout is not as effective and fun as calling them out for Hollywood being filled with racists, so let’s go with the latter option until it is made certain that they aren’t racists.
But in any case, the main point is that, if there is systemic racism to be found anywhere in the country, it’s where Leftists are in control. Don’t misunderstand, I am not saying that there is systematic racism in this country. I don’t believe there is systematic racism (there is racism in general, but I don’t think it’s systematic or even as rampant as people might pretend).
However, if a Leftist wants to pretend there is systematic racism, they will have to explain just why it is that the vast majority of the places where black people were killed by officers (justifiably or not) are places where Democrats control practically everything and have for some time. Democrats run on such issues while doing nothing positive towards them, only making things worse in the belief that doing so will make more people dependent on them and can therefore never be taken out of power.
The sad part is that they could be right. While I do feel empathy for the people whose businesses were destroyed by the riots (or neighborhoods insurrected by communists in Seattle), they largely voted for these things. It’s awful that these things are happening but there is a very clear solution: don’t elect Democrats. It’s hard to feel much more empathetic when they continue to vote for people who are out to hurt and exploit them.
I hope that this election season, people will remember that the Democrats are responsible for the riots and the destruction, and are going so far as to justify and excuse them in many cases, and that they vote these dangerous people out of power for good.
If you believe there is systemic racism and want to definitively put an end to it wherever it might be found, never vote Democrat again.

This is not the first time I have talked about a poll like this, but I felt it necessary, in this crazy age, to remind people that the vast majority of Americans are not the crazy commie radicals that we often see on television, movies, and the media. Most people do not actually agree with the Left on a variety of issues, but they make themselves appear to be the majority via their control of the pillars of power not only in the country but throughout the world (and I’ll get to that in a moment).
Knowing this, it doesn’t come as any surprise to me to see that a majority of Americans (55%) support either implementing restrictions on abortion or outright bans on the murderous practice, according to a recent CBS poll.
The survey of 1,309 Americans, including 454 Democrats, 331 Republicans and 524 Independents, indicated that 43% of surveyors believed abortion should be “generally available”, with 55% saying there ought to be some restrictions or an outright ban on abortion.
Specifically, 31% said that abortion should be “available but under limits,” and 24% said that it “should not be permitted” at all.
By political lines, we find that only 20% of Republicans believe abortion should be “generally available”, while 66% of Democrats and 39% of Independents said the same.
With regard to restrictions, 44% of Republicans believed some restrictions ought to be put into place, with 21% of Democrats and 31% of Independents agreeing on this. An outright ban is viewed positively by 35% of Republicans, 12% of Democrats and 27% of Independents.
Putting them together, that makes 79% of Republicans, 33% of Democrats and 58% of Independents believing that abortion should have some restrictions or be altogether banned.
Like I said earlier, this is not the first time I have talked about a poll like this because this has generally been the overall sentiment of Americans for a number of years. Back in June of 2019, I wrote about a similar poll, conducted by Harvard/Harris, which found that 46% of respondents “said the [Supreme Court] should uphold the ruling in Roe if the issue comes before the judges, while 36% said the Supreme Court should modify the 46-year-old ruling. Eighteen percent wanted the ruling to be overturned altogether.”
Like I pointed out in that particular article, that means that while 46% said the ruling (and therefore abortion law) should not be altered, 54% of surveyors said that it should be altered or done away with altogether. This is pretty close to the findings of the recent CBS poll showing that 43% of respondents said abortion should be “generally available” (aka not altered) and 55% said that it should be restricted or banned.
In other words, general sentiment surrounding abortion has not changed all that much over the past year. Most people believe it should either be restricted (with some ideas including changing Roe to allow for states to dictate whether or not abortion would be legal, as opposed to forcing all states to make it legal) or completely eliminated as a practice because it is abhorrent and legal murder.
A Marist poll from back in January also showed something similar, finding that 62% of Americans said that if the Supreme Court revisits Roe, it should either allow for states to determine what restrictions or outright bans they can put on abortion (46%) or outright make abortion illegal (16%).
Of course, one could look at that 62% and say that sentiment has gone the pro-abortion way in that time frame, but you also have to remember that last year, 54% of respondents to that aforementioned Hill poll said abortion should be restricted or made illegal. So either sentiment goes up and a bit down on it in favor of pro-life, never finding a majority believing abortion should remain the same or made less restrictive, or the polling methods are a bit odd (let’s not forget, the Left loves to oversample Democrats).
Regardless of what could be the reason for such oddities (and a good reason could simply be how the questions are worded, as that tends to affect the outcome of some polls), we still find that the majority of Americans do not favor abortion, or at least do not favor a sort of carte blanche approach to abortion that the Left would love to see. The Left would love nothing more than to see unrestricted abortion, even in the moments after birth, if Governor Coonman’s radio interview where he expressed such thoughts were any indication.
But even with this, you have to ask yourself: why does it still feel like the country is moving in the wrong direction with such things and why does it feel like I am in the minority, even though that’s not the case? Why does it feel like our culture is moving further away from God rather than towards Him, even if polls do not indicate most people agree with such cultural changes?
Which brings me back to what I talked about earlier with that comment about the “pillars of power”. You see, a culture is affected and determined primarily by those at the top. This is true in the case of communities, cities, states, entire countries and even in the realm of sports. A winning culture in a team can allow for it to be more successful (i.e. the Miami Heat, who do not really have a true superstar but have managed a good number of wins throughout the last few seasons), while a losing culture marred in mediocrity-at-best will find trouble being anything substantial (i.e just about any New York sports team, minus the Yankees).
So despite the fact that a majority of Americans do not agree with abortion, the Left definitely does and they are the ones in control of most of the pillars of power.
What are these pillars of power, you might ask? Government (including schools), news media, Hollywood/t.v./streaming, sports (entertainment in general), the corporations (I say this at the risk of sounding like Bernie, but it's true) Church (not joking) and social media.
While Trump is the President and Republicans hold the Senate, Democrats control the House and generally are good at pushing through their socialist b.s. (the Democrats only have as much power as the GOP allows them to have and the spineless GOP allows them to have plenty of it). And let’s not even pretend like all GOP members of Congress are conservatives. You have RINOs like Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, etc. We used to have Jeff Flake and John McCain, as well as Paul Ryan as House Speaker. Despite not holding the presidency (and they eventually will), Leftists run D.C. and much of government. And there is no denying the regular Marxist indoctrination centers that are our public schools.
While Fox News and conservative websites exist (and Fox News is going more and more RINO at the behest of Paul Ryan), over 90% of the news is negative towards Trump. The Left holds a massive majority in the news cycle, which is why we so often call them fake news (apart from the fact that they outright spread fake news).
While there are conservative actors, they are generally far quieter because the Left controls most of Hollywood/the entertainment business. Prominent conservatives like James Woods get blacklisted and essentially cancelled and the ones who have not are either going to be at one point or do the career-smart move of staying quiet, for the most part. For example, I have a sneaking suspicion that Adam Driver, most famous for his role in the recent Star Wars trilogy as the villain Kylo Ren, is a conservative for a few reasons. For one, he laughed a lot when Ricky Gervais brought up how many in Hollywood were friends with Jeffrey Epstein (whereas most people either cringed and groaned or just remained silent). He also joined the Marines after 9/11, something few Leftists would have considered doing, and finally, he leads a mostly quiet and private life (conservatives like to be left alone, for the most part).
Also, if he is a conservative, I don’t blame him for not showing it, as such a thing can bring him persecution and lead to him losing roles and destroy not only his career but also his life (which he has to be careful about, as a husband and father).
But regardless of this, it is no secret that the Left runs Hollywood.
It also generally runs sports, as evident not only by loud voices such as LeBron James (who is loud about politics unless it has to do with China and it threatens his wallet), Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Colin Kaepernick, the NFL itself, the NBA itself, now, ashamedly, NASCAR itself and much of the sports mainstream media.
The major corporations all bend the knee to the mob, whether it be Google firing an engineer for saying that women don't tend to want to be engineers (which is true), or corporations changing their logos to show a gay pride flag, or sending out statements "in support" of the idea that black lives matter, they do all these things because the vast majority of them are run by Leftists and they don't even try to hide it.
The current Pope is a socialist whose only redeeming quality is that he is not pro-abortion and many denominations have attempted to follow and appease Man as opposed to follow and appease God. Even the denomination I belong to, the Presbyterian church, is going Leftist (worth noting there is the Presbyterian Church of the United States of America which is even farther Left than the Roman Catholic Church and the one I belong to, the Presbyterian Church in America, is going a bit more to the Left) with many people in the Presbytery allowing a “same-sex attracted” preacher not only amongst their midst but also selling books trying to indoctrinate people into accepting homosexuality as being normal and not a sin, going contrary to the Bible.
Finally, there is social media and I hardly think I need to explain how that one is Leftist, considering how often they target and ban/censor conservatives and people with “wrongthink”.
Despite the fact that the vast majority of the country is not Leftist, the pillars of power that shape our culture are mostly owned by the Left. This is why it feels like the country is going so far Left and why Democrats can run on unrestricted abortion without much worry. Even if they don’t necessarily win, they are a part of shaping our culture (Stacey Abrams lost embarrassingly but she is still a prominent politician thanks to the media and the pillars of power in general). It’s also why celebrities can attack someone for holding the basic and logical belief that a man cannot get pregnant or get a period. Even if most people disagree, they are the ones in power to shape the culture – cancelling whatever and whomever they disagree with for the sin of disagreeing with them or even not being vocal enough about Leftist causes.
It’s good to see that the majority of the country does not support abortion, or at least unrestricted abortion, but the reason we feel like we are losing is not because we are in the minority, but because the Left controls the pillars of power that affect our culture.
They must be defeated at every level.

After years of nothing but fake news, we all have come to the understanding that the fake news media is the enemy of the people. They will embrace the outright insane, so long as such insanity does not at all affect them, and demand that insanity become the status quo.
And with the recent riots, particularly with Leftist radicals demanding the defunding/abolishment of the police in various major cities and towns, CNN is now trying to make the case for going forth with such an insane and idiotic idea, particularly as the city of Minneapolis begins to prepare to have a vote on whether or not to dismantle their police.
Specifically, CNN is looking at a few “cities” which have kind of done that (and I will explain further in a moment) and what the aftermath of such actions were in order to see if such an idea could possibly be feasible.
First, and mostly, they talk about Camden, New Jersey, which is the biggest city CNN talks about with a population of a whopping 75,000 people, compared to Minneapolis’ 429,000+, and you can clearly see a massive difference. And again, that is the biggest city CNN found that “got rid” of its police department.
I would hope you would see why the population difference is so important: smaller cities and towns are easier to handle by smaller police forces.
But that’s not the only pathetic thing about the CNN article. You see, CNN correctly points out that in 2012, the city broke up its entire police department:
“The city, home to a population about 17% of Minneapolis’ size, dissolved its police department in 2012 and replaced it with an entirely new one after corruption rendered the existing agency unfixable.”
So Camden didn’t get rid of its police force, but rather, they completely renewed it. That is a far cry from the calls of defunding/abolishing the police (which Leftist are now trying to gaslight us, telling us “defund the police” doesn’t actually mean “defund the police”).
As Jazz Shaw from Hot Air put it, “the total time that Camden was actually ‘without’ a police department was the period of time it took to sign a few papers.”
The city was never actually without a police department in the sense that they disbanded it and just let things be. They actually ensured that their broken, corrupt police department which hardly did its job (Camden has, for a long time, been one of the most dangerous cities, but it was even more dangerous before the reformation of the department) could be replaced by something that is MORE effective, not less, as Leftists are attempting to do. They are not a city which could be said “got rid” of their police department. They reformed it, not destroyed it, defunded it or abolished it. Even then, they still rehired a hundred of the previous force’s police officers.
The second city they talk about, far more briefly, is Deposit, New York. CNN points out: “Earlier this year, the village of Deposit, New York, dissolved its department because it cost $200,000 per year. Now, a single sheriff’s deputy is assigned to the village, CNN affiliate WICZ reported.”
Care to read that quote again and pick out a key word? Go ahead. Did you catch it? Deposit, New York is not a city – it’s a village.
It’s population, you might ask? 250. No, not 250,000. Just 250. Care to take a look at the village on Google Maps? That entire area within the highlighted shape comprises two miles across from the southwestern point to the northeastern one.
Knowing this, it makes plenty of sense as to why the city decided that spending $200,000 a year on a police department was unnecessary: a single sheriff, maybe with some backup from state police, was really all that was necessary. This is a modern-day Wild West town, pretty much.
What’s more, the village is hardly a place of crime. Over the last 15 years, the number of murders has been a brisk 0. In that time frame, only 2 rapes have been committed, three robberies and you have to go back to 2012 to find a single assault committed in recent time, with 10 having been the most in that 15 year time frame back in 2006.
The final “city” CNN talks about is Garden City, Missouri, which “laid off all of its officers and suspended its police chief because, as its mayor said in 2018, the city couldn’t afford to keep them employed,” according to CNN.
As with Deposit, New York, Garden City is not exactly a Metropolis or a Gotham City. Its population, according to the 2010 census (so it could be a bit more today) is around 1,600 people. Crime data for Garden City shows that, in the last 15 years, only one murder has been committed, only one rape, three robberies and in the last five years, only three assaults have occurred.
Garden City is extremely small and there are not a whole lot of crimes happening there. To use this, or the other two cities, as an argument for getting rid of entire police departments in a city as massive as Minneapolis is extremely idiotic and insane, though that seems to be par for the course, all things considered.
Again, the biggest of the cities talked about went without an official police force all of the duration of a bathroom break and the other cities are extremely small and fairly crime-free.
It also helps that gun laws aren’t exactly restrictive, allowing for people to defend themselves should the need arise, which definitely contribute to the low crime rates. Minneapolis, on the other hand, is a deep-blue city with a lot of crime. According to its crime data, it is the most crime-riddled city compared to the other ones nearby. Over the last 15 years, 536 murders were committed.
Do you really think an absent police force would make things better? Do you really think that having less police would solve any sort of issue? Keep in mind the Washington Post data that said only 9 unarmed black people were shot and killed by police in the entire country. Minneapolis getting rid of its police department, or defunding it to the point where it is practically useless even if not entirely defunct, is not a solution at all to the problem the city council is faced with.
Compare the 9 unarmed black people killed by cops to the number of black people killed by other black people. According to US News, “among the 6,000 cases in which the race of the victim and the offender were known, the number of blacks killed by blacks rose to 2,380 [in 2015].”
The percentage of black people killed by another black person stood at roughly 90%, and 2015 was the first time this century when the rate of black victims killed by another black person stood below 90%, at 89.3%.
How come those black lives don’t matter? Why is it that black lives only matter when it’s police officers who take them, justified or not? Why is it that David Dorn’s life didn’t matter? Why is it that Dave Patrick Underwood’s life didn’t matter? Why is it that David McAtee’s life didn’t matter (ironically, he was accidentally killed by police who returned fire after hearing gunshots in one of the riots and hardly anyone brings him up)? Why is it that Chris Beaty’s life didn’t matter?
The four people I mentioned were all black people who were killed during the riots, either by the rioters themselves or by the police on accident (McAtee was not a rioter and he often was amicable with the police in his barbeque restaurant). But you tell me that getting rid of the cops will save black lives? Give me a break.
Not that it matters any to the Left. There is good reason as to why those names (and there are others) are not being mentioned by the media: it goes against their desire to sow discord and chaos. Many on the fake news media have embraced, excused and even tried to justify the wanton destruction and ruination of lives (many of which are minorities’ lives, as rioters destroyed plenty of businesses that are either run by or employ minorities).
And now, CNN is not-so-subtly trying to make the case for dismantling the police in a city that is already ravaged by crime by bringing up three cities that are not at all comparable to Minneapolis and have not exactly abolished the rule of law, like the Left is trying to do.
The more time goes by, the more Trump seems to be proven right: the media truly is the enemy of the people.

Last Friday, presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared on the Breakfast Club podcast being interviewed by co-host Charlamagne tha God to discuss Biden’s black voting base. The entire thing was not exactly great and Joe Biden delivered perhaps what is one of his most racist statements of his life, which is saying plenty.
At one point, Charlamagne told Biden: “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions.” Joe Biden seemed insulted by the notion that he would have more questions and replied: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
And the mask falls off. Time and time again, I have alluded to the Democrat Party essentially being a slave plantation of thought and Joe Biden all but confirmed that idea. You aren’t black if you are thinking of voting for Trump or if you are on the fence about who to vote for.
Naturally, this spurned backlash online from both sides of the aisle.
Machine Gun Kele tweeted: “I don’t know what kind of level of comfort you have to attain to make a statement like Joe Biden did in this video clip. Qwhite something.” (Not a typo, I think she completely meant to write that and I found it funny).
“Whoever helped Biden with this particular interview flopped. ‘You ain’t black’ will never bang coming from a white man’s mouth. Soz. I know your forefathers decided on the racial categories buy you really have a nerve whether in jest or not,” she continued.
Andrew Surabian tweeted: “A white guy lecturing black Americans that they ‘ain’t black’ if they don’t vote for him is about as condescending and racist as it gets.”
If you’re wondering what Charlamagne said following Joe’s statement, he seemed to have briefly brushed it aside to say: “It don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact – I want something for my community.”
Following the clip, the Breakfast Club’s twitter page tweeted: “#joebiden said ‘If you have a problem figuring out if you are for him or Trump… you ain’t black’ Do you agree??” followed by a poll, which at the time of me seeing it, was an overwhelming: “Wait what.. no,” with thousands of votes.
For those of you who have been tuned in to politics for some time, you know very well that Joe Biden often says seriously stupid things. I even highlighted some of them in an article a month ago, detailing gaffes from the misinformed to the outright racist. Let’s revisit some of the racist ones because Joe Biden has an explicitly RACIST history, both in terms of things he has said and in terms of his actions.
Let’s begin with one of his most infamous statements, which he made in 2007 with regard to then-Democrat candidate Barack Obama: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
Obviously, this was abhorrently racist and insinuated that no other African-American has ever been articulate, bright, clean or a “nice-looking guy”, which is wrong on so many levels. The Washington Post tried to excuse that statement as saying Biden was just referring to presidential candidates but even that doesn’t work. For one, not that I think he is a smart person, in fact I believe he is a deeply racist idiot, but Jesse Jackson ran for president in 1984 and 1988 and was a relatively serious contender for both. So to say that Obama was the first African-American presidential candidate (which Biden didn’t specify, but let’s just assume that’s what he meant to go along with the WaPo for now) that was “ the first mainstream African-American who is articulate, bright, clean and an nice-looking guy” dismisses Jesse Jackson altogether.
Again, I think Jesse Jackson is a racist idiot, but the Left doesn’t, so it was a stupid and racist comment no matter how you slice it.
Moving on to another instance of Biden being racist, we have the infamous “7-11” comment: “In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”
Ignoring the fact that Indians moving to America from India doesn’t automatically make them Indian Americans, so that statement makes little sense, there is no denying the blatant racism here. Despite the fact that he finished the statement as saying “I’m not joking”, it’s pretty obvious he was, indeed, joking. Or at least, I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt here, otherwise he is an even bigger racist than even I thought. But even if that was a joke, and I think most people would agree that it was, it was an awfully racist joke.
I’m not sure what point he was trying to get across, but one can hardly look at something like this and not consider it to be insensitive and racist. It alludes to the idea that Indian people can’t communicate with others well if they do not have a similar accent to their own. At least, that’s what I think Joe meant here, given he was referring to the self as having a “slight Indian accent”. But regardless of what he meant, it was awful and something the fake news media would NEVER let Trump or a Republican get away with.
Of course, there is also the infamous “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids”, alluding to the idea that ALL black people are poor and that all poor people are black, but we have had plenty of examples of things he has said that make Biden a blatant racist.
Now, let’s move on to things he has DONE that make Biden a blatant racist.
New York Magazine has a pretty good piece on Biden’s atrocious civil rights record that I think one should read (and it's surprising because the writer is clearly a Leftist himself). It’s titled: “Will Black Voters Still Love Biden When They Remember Who He Was?”
Of course, this was written back when the primaries were still going and Joe wasn’t the obvious winner, but it still holds up fairly well. Other than the title itself, I guess. Joe is still the same racist he always was in the past. He clearly hasn’t changed in that regard and fully expects all black people to fall in line and support him, otherwise they cannot be considered black. He is still the slave-driver that Democrats always have been, but let’s get down to the meat and potatoes of the article.
Right off the bat, the writer, Eric Levitz, lambasts Joe with things he has said in the past: “Joe Biden once called state-mandated school integration ‘the most racist concept you can come up with,’ and Barack Obama ‘the first sort of mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean.’ He was a staunch opponent of ‘forced busing’ in the 1970s, and leading crusader for mass incarceration throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s. Uncle Joe has described African-American felons as ‘predators’ too sociopathic to rehabilitate – and white supremacist senators as his friends.”
Following that, he mentions that “Biden helped kill the most effective policy for improving black educational attainment that America has ever known.”
He talked about how, originally, Joe Biden was in favor of desegregating schools, until his constituents were against it. After some time, he argued that “forced busing was appropriate for the South (where segregation was the product of racist laws), but unnecessary for the North (where, Biden pretended, it merely reflected the preferences of the white and black communities.),” according to New York Mag.
“Once in the Senate, Biden continued to triangulate, voting for most, though not all, of the anti-busing amendments that came before him. But for his overwhelmingly white constituents, nothing less than massive resistance to busing would suffice. The New Castle County Neighborhood Schools Association booed Biden off the stage at one event in 1974. One year later, the Delaware senator broke ranks with northern liberals – and joined his virulently racist North Carolina colleague Jesse Helms in voting to kneecap all federal efforts to integrate schools, anywhere in the country.”
The Helms amendment, which aimed to give the federal government the ability to withhold funds from schools that refused to integrate, failed, but Biden implemented an amendment of his own, “stipulating that none of those federal funds (of a $36 billion education bill), could be used by school systems ‘to assign teachers or students to schools… for reasons of race.’ His amendment would prevent ‘some faceless bureaucrat’ from ‘deciding that any child, black or white, should fit in some predetermined ratio,’” according to historian Jason Sokol.
Sokol continued: “Like the Helms gambit, [Biden’s provision] would still gut Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. But this time, a number of liberal senators that had opposed Helms’ amendment now supported Biden… Watching his liberal colleagues defect, Republican Jacob Javits of New York mused, ‘They’re scared to death on busing.’ The Senate approved Biden’s amendment. Biden had managed to turn a 48-43 loss for the anti-busing forces into a 50-43 victory.”
NY Mag notes that “The NAACP called Biden’s proposal ‘an anti-black amendment.’ The Senate’s sole African-American member, Ed Brooke, called it ‘the greatest symbolic defeat for civil rights since 1964.’”
It’s worth mentioning, though the NY Mag completely ignores it, that Ed Brooke was the first African-American to be elected to the Senate and that he was a Republican.
The reason it’s worth mentioning this is that Joe Biden, following the passage of his amendment, employed a tactic that the Left often uses against the Right: calling them the real racists.
“The new integration plans being offered are really just quota systems to assure a certain number of blacks, Chicanos, or whatever in each school. That, to me, is the most racist concept you can come up with. What it says is, ‘In order for your child with curly black hair, brown eyes, and dark skin to be able to learn anything, he needs to sit next to my blond-haired, blue-eyed son.’ That’s racist!,” Joe Biden remarked in an interview in 1975.
That same year, he essentially repeated his thoughts in an interview with NPR: “I think the concept of busing… that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride… a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality.”
It is interesting to see what b.s. the Left would use to justify the unjustifiable. From denying the humanity of unborn babies to denying the benefits black people get when they attend desegregated schools over segregated ones (studies show that black kids who attended desegregated schools earned an average of 25% more than those who attended segregated ones), the Left will stop at nothing and come up with the most insane b.s. to deny humans their God-given rights.
Moving on, and trying to keep things a bit short now since this article is so long already, we have the most obvious contribution to black suffering that Biden has made: the 1994 crime bill and a facet of other tough-on-crime bills that disproportionately affect black people.
“During the 1980s, Biden helped pass laws reinstating the federal death penalty, abolishing federal parole, increasing penalties for marijuana possession, expanding the use of civil asset forfeiture, and establishing a 100-to-1 sentencing disparity for possession of crack cocaine and powder cocaine,” according to New York Mag.
And while I agree with some of these things, namely the reinstating of the federal death penalty and being tough on drugs, these are things the Left often decries as “racist” and Biden has helped in pushing them through and getting them passed in the Senate.
Not to mention the ’94 crime bill itself was created by him.
In 1989, when H.W. gave a national address about his war on drugs, Biden said that Bush wasn’t being “tough enough, bold enough, or imaginative enough to meet the crisis at hand.” Biden called for tougher measures of increasing police presence to “catch the violent thugs”, increasing the number of prosecutors to convict them, increasing the number of judges to sentence them and increasing the number of prison cells to “put them away for a long time.”
Again, I, myself, am an advocate for tough sentencing for drug operations, dealers and (slightly less) for drug possession. But the Left currently is all for letting people mess themselves up in whatever way possible and Joe is their CURRENT NOMINEEE and he has this kind of track record when it comes to putting black people in jail.
This is without mentioning his comments regarding black youth possibly becoming “predators 15 years from now.”
There is plenty more to discuss when it comes to Biden’s blatant racism, such as the fact that he openly BRAGGED about receiving an award from segregationist George Wallace in 1973 and saying “We (Delawareans) were on the South’s side in the Civil War”, thereby including himself among the people who SUPPORTED THE PRO-SLAVERY SOUTH, but I think you get the point and this article is long enough as it is.
Biden fully expecting black people to submit to his Democrat whip and be enchained to his Leftist collar is really par for the course for the despicable man.

While plenty of other things have been on the news as of late (including a certain virus from China that I will do my best not to mention because it’s being talked about in every other media to an obscene extent), something that has flown under the radar is a slight correction made by the 1619 Project, the New York Times’ attempt at rewriting history for the benefit of an ideological war against this country.
Earlier in the month, a historian named Leslie M. Harris wrote an essay for Politico. According to National Review: “Harris claimed that Times fact-checkers reached out to her prior to the publication of the 1619 Project’s seminal essays to solicit her expertise on the relevant history involved. Harris wrote back to the fact-checkers, insisting that she ‘vigorously disputed’ the factual basis of one of the project’s central claims.”
What claim was she heavily contesting? The following passage from the Project: “Conveniently left out of our Founding mythology is the fact that one of the primary reasons the colonists decided to declare their independence from Britain was because they wanted to protect the institution of slavery.”
This, Harris contends, is not factually accurate (unsurprisingly). The entire reason behind the Project’s absurd claim is because of the Dunmore Proclamation, a proclamation made by the British governor of Virginia, Lord Dunmore, that was meant to preserve his rule as a representative of the monarchy by “drawing the slaves of rebellious colonists into his militia in exchange for their freedom,” according to Phillip Magness of the American Institute for Economic Research.
Magness continued: “The Dunmore Proclamation revealed one of the many ways in which slavery cut across the other dividing lines of the revolutionary period, but it did not portend a coming general emancipation from the Crown. Indeed, most slave-owning colonists perceived the measure as an attempt to incite a slave revolt against opponents of the British rule, rather than a sign of slavery’s weakening position. The proclamation conveniently exempted the slaves of loyalist plantation owners, and Dunmore himself left a sordid record as supporter and beneficiary of slavery in the British colonial system. Meanwhile, as the long fight to abolish the institution made all too clear, supporters of slavery maintained a firm majority in the British Parliament at the time – and would continue in power for several decades to come.”
So it is not even remotely true that preserving slavery was a reason for the Revolutionary War. The Dunmore Proclamation, as Magness noted, was nothing but an attempt at crushing the rebellion by getting rid of revolutionary colonists’ slaves, promising them freedom if they fought for the Crown, while exempting loyalist colonists from that proclamation. Slaves were nothing but a tool, as they largely were considered back then, at furthering a goal.
But even then, the 1619 Project remains arrogant about its claim. While they offered a correction, it’s minimal. Instead of eliminating that factually-ignorant claim from its essays, the Project said that preserving slavery was the purpose of SOME colonists rather than all of them. But that claim IS STILL WRONG!
That, combined with the fact that the Project ignored or dismissed historians and fact-checkers who disagreed with their erroneous claims and dismissed the 1776 Project, a counter-project run by conservative African-Americans to maintain the fact that our founding was in 1776 and not when the first slaves arrived in 1619, shows that the point of the 1619 Project was never about simply revising and uncovering hidden histories of this country, but rather, destroying the very founding principles and concepts of this country, declaring everything from its governmental system to its economic system as stained and discredited as a result of its history of slavery (completely ignoring the fact that slavery was found in many other places around the world and still can be found in places like the Middle East and China).
The reason I make this assertion is because at the end of the aforementioned National Review article, we find: “[Magness’] piece… is worth reading in its entirety for its portrait of a project that succumbed to ideological ambition and, in so doing, lost a bit in the way of historical accuracy.”
The 1619 Project didn’t “succumb” to ideological ambition. Ideological ambition WAS ITS ENTIRE PURPOSE! It was never meant to be a recounting of our nation’s history, it was meant to be a REWRITING of our nation’s history, seeking to delegitimize our nation’s institutions. One of the sociologists brought in by the Project basically admits as much, having essentially argued that the country’s plantation economy stained and discredited modern American capitalism.
The entire point of this project wasn’t to offer a plausible alternative to the typical founding story we are taught in school. It wasn’t supposed to be about uncovering a secret truth behind our nation’s founding that has been buried for centuries. It was always supposed to be an ideological piece to fuel a war on American institutions and its very legitimacy. So for the writer at National Review to suggest it succumbed to ideological ambition, losing “a bit in the way of historical accuracy” is not putting it the right way.
This is the New York Times we’re talking about; some of the same people that right now (and I am about to break my promise about not taking about the Wuhan virus) are deflecting the blame from China for the damage it has caused the entire world as a result of the Chinese coronavirus that originated in China and has spread because of the CCP’s negligence (at best). The same people that lionized Chinese Communist dictator Mao Zedong in remembering his death back in September and absolved radical Islamic terrorists from any blame for the 9/11 attacks on the WTC during the 18-year anniversary.
Do you really think anyone at the New York Times would do honest research and fact-checking for a revising of history like the 1619 Project, leaving any semblance of ideological ambition or politics out of it? They do not care about history, as those two examples with Mao and the 9/11 remembrance tweets show. They care about setting a narrative and nothing more.
They cared about one of the most evil people in the history of the world seeming like an innocent son of a peasant farmer rising to the challenge of leading a nation and its people (conveniently leaving out his death toll standing in the tens of millions on the low end). They cared about the radical followers of a deadly religion by absolving them of any guilt on 9/11. They are not going to care about making this country look good or honest or legitimate. Whatever they can do to strip it of its legitimacy, they will do it, as evidenced by the fact that they dismissed any and all dissidents, including fact-checkers, numerous historians and a counter-project run by African-Americans who know the history of this country.
Their purpose, from the Project’s very conception, was bashing America and everything it stood for as being illegitimate because of its history of slavery, again, dismissing the fact that slavery has been used by practically every other country and is still widely used in Middle Eastern countries and in China (largely through concentration camps). History and facts were damned by these people and still continue to be. The ONLY reason they issued any sort of correction is because a fact-checker, whom they previously contacted and voiced her disagreement with a particular wild claim, wrote an essay for Politico that drew attention to the Project’s erroneous claim.
Their correction was barely even a correction, still implying that protecting slavery was the purpose of some of the colonists involved in the revolution, when there is no evidence to be found of that and the evidence USED by the Project does not show it. Again, the Dunmore Proclamation was just a method of snuffing out the rebellion, not a measure by the Crown and British Parliament to attempt to abolish slavery in the colonies, particularly because slavery wouldn’t be abolished in Great Britain until 1833, nearly 60 years after the revolution.
The reason for this Project in the first place is because the Left hates this country and thinks it illegitimate, arguing with whatever load of crap they can to deceive as many people as possible.

For the past few weeks, people like Jim Acosta, Joe Biden, Chris Cuomo and other Left-wing nuts have tried to insist to people that calling the Coronavirus “Wuhan Virus” was racist and xenophobic, even though that is the place of origin for the virus and Wuhan is a place, not a nationality or a race, and even though the media had been calling it the “Wuhan Virus” before anyone in the Trump administration was calling it that. I had debated with myself if I should call the virus “Wuhan Virus” just to annoy the idiots that say it’s “racist” or “xenophobic”, but the reason I will now largely call it the Wuhan Virus is because China, aided by the mainstream media, is trying to peddle the conspiracy theory that the virus was actually AMERICA’S fault.
You see, Chinese government officials have been trying to frame the United States as being the reason for the virus in the first place, with Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian saying on Twitter that “it might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan”, which is nothing more than a conspiracy theory, as he presented no evidence to support his claims.
But that didn’t stop Yahoo News from insinuating that there was actual doubt about the origins of the virus. “China, US spar over origin of coronavirus,” reads their title, which, as always, is largely fake news.
No one (serious) is sparring about the origin of the virus (though I have seen some idiots on Twitter peddle this garbage as well). Mike Pompeo and others in the Trump administration, including the president himself, have called it the Wuhan Virus and have said it came from China. The Chinese are now saying that it’s the Americans who are at fault here, not themselves, despite the mountain of evidence to the contrary.
To their credit, Yahoo News didn’t simply post the Chinese side of the fictitious story and noted that few people outside of the Chinese government are buying what it is selling. Dali Yang, a political science professor at the University of Chicago, was interviewed by Yahoo News and said that China’s reason for promoting the conspiracy theory is “to divert from domestic discontent” over how they handled the outbreak, which has killed over 3,100 people in the country.
So pretty much everyone knows that the Chinese government lies about pretty much everything and tends to shut down anyone who might say something the government doesn’t like, and “shutting down” sometimes means outright execution.
Not that that’s going to stop the fake news media, as NBC News picked up the story as well: “Coronavirus: Chinese official suggests U.S. Army to blame for outbreak,” was the headline of the story, followed by a quote of the Lijian tweet. Missing from the headline? THE FACT THAT THE CHINESE OFFICIAL PRESENTED NO EVIDENCE AND THE MEDIA ALWAYS ADDS “WITHOUT EVIDENCE” WHEN TRUMP SUGGESTS ANYTHING!
Not one word about it being unconfirmed or a baseless conspiracy theory, only that the Chinese official “suggested” it, as though there is some level of validity to his claim, of which there is NONE.
Now, allow me to present to you the mountain of evidence that points to the Chinese lying their butts off to try and make themselves look good and frame everything on America.
First, and perhaps most interestingly, the conspiracy theory regarding American military having brought the virus to China is contradicted by THE CHINESE CDC BACK IN JANUARY!
Back in January, roughly a month after the outbreak began in Wuhan, Gao Fu, the head of the Chinese CDC, said “we now know the source of the virus is wild animals sold at the seafood market” in Wuhan.
Now, much like everything else regarding what the Chinese are telling us, I’ll take that with a massive grain of salt, because the city of Wuhan is home to a large virus lab, the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Now, I’m not the Chinese, I’m not going to peddle a conspiracy theory that that was the real origin of the virus without any evidence, which I do not have. However, I know the Chinese lie all the time, and their current claims for the origin of the virus are obvious lies, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the virus did originate in that lab, particularly since the government shut down any and all people who tried to sound the alarm on the virus back in December.
But for the purposes of this argument, let’s say that Gao Fu was telling the truth and the origin of the virus was a wild animal that infected a human (though there are no details about how exactly that happened) at a sea food market. That still points the origin of the virus squarely on the city of Wuhan. So it directly contradicts Zhao’s and the Chinese government’s attempts at shifting the blame off themselves and unto the U.S.
Now, let us look at some more evidence of the Chinese government’s utter failure, their lies and deceptive actions, and why the media is doing a disservice trying to paint China in a positive light since they have sort of contained the virus as of late.
From the South China Morning Post: “As China battles to contain the new coronavirus epidemic, questions are being asked about the failure of its multimillion-dollar, state-of-the-art early warning system, set up in the wake of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) outbreak which cost the country 349 lives and more than 200 billion yuan (US$28.6 billion) in economic losses.”
Yang Gonghuan, the former CDC deputy director, told the SCMP: “We spent 730 million yuan to build a reporting and early warning system for the CDC after Sars. It did well for the avian flu and plague, although they were of much smaller scale than the coronavirus.”
“For the whole of December when the disease happened, I have learned that the system was not put into use. I was very surprised at the time. This [failure] actually exemplifies a lot of the problems that are happening in China today.”
The SCMP said: “A leaked document from Wuhan Central Hospital – one of the designated facilities for Covid-19 patients – this week indirectly confirmed that the early warning system was not activated during the early period of the outbreak.”
“The document showed doctors were under instructions not to report any cases until they had been vetted and approved by their supervisors. They were also forbidden from disclosing any information to the public without permission.”
“Doctors said they stayed away from infectious disease cases to avoid trouble. Wei Peng, a doctor at a fever clinic in a Wuhan community hospital, said he had no knowledge of the CDC early warning system and would not have bothered to use it even if he had. ‘There is no gain for you if you report. No one would blame you if you didn’t,’ he said, describing the process of reporting as ‘tedious trouble.’”
“Doctors who did speak out in the early days of the outbreak faced consequences. Ai Fen, head of Wuhan Central Hospital’s emergency department, was muzzled by local authorities after raising the alarm without permission at the end of December.”
“Another doctor, Li Wenliang, shared her information privately with a group of medical school alumni and was reprimanded by local police for ‘spreading rumors.’ Weeks later, Li was killed by the disease and was hailed in China as a whistle-blower and a martyr.”
All of these things only serve to further show the horrors of communism and the slimy nature of those at the top of such a governmental system. The doctors felt no need to report on any of it because they would only be PUNISHED by the government for doing so. The ones who did try to sound the alarm on it were SHUT DOWN, with one of them having been used as a martyr, much like Islamic terrorists use evil people like Soleimani and other bastard terrorists as “martyrs for a good cause”.
What’s more, the SCMP continues: “Questions have also been raised by the revelation – in a report by Communist Party journal Qiushi in mid-February – that China’s leadership was fully informed about the outbreak as early as January 7, two weeks before President Xi Jinping publicly urged an all-out effort to contain the new disease.”
“Meanwhile, official reports have documented that leading experts from China’s National Health Commission made two separate visits to Wuhan, just a week apart in early January, and reported no evidence of human transmission of the virus. It has since emerged that there was evidence of human transmission occurring in Wuhan as early as December.”
So they knew about the outbreak long before they enacted any measures to attempt to contain it (this essentially nukes any arguments that China did the West a favor, as some in the MSM are trying to suggest) and people in the NHC lied about a lack of evidence of human transmission of the virus, when there actually was evidence of it, whether it was to appease the leaders or to benefit them.
And the Left thinks China is a model for the rest of the world, particularly the U.S.? Practically everything they throw at Trump – that he’s a dictator, that he is incompetent, that he doesn’t care about people – is WHAT THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT ACTUALLY REPRESENTS! THEY are the actual, literal dictators, they are incompetent (at best) and totally uncaring!
And the media does the work for them, in trying to shut down people who call it its rightful name: Wuhan Virus. They do the Chinese bidding with some of them saying the Chinese are effective in their efforts to contain the virus when that is patently untrue. They help them out by saying that the Chinese are better than the Americans because the Chinese are sending aide to Italy while we are banning travel to and from Italy, despite the fact that we have been sending aide to BOTH CHINA AND OTHER COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY THE VIRUS and that the ONLY reason China is helping Italy is because, according to David Vance of altnewsmedia.net:
“Many Italians in Northern Italy sold their leather goods and textiles companies to China. Italy then allowed 100,000 Chinese from Wuhan/Wenzhou to move to Italy to work in these factories, with direct Wuhan flights. Result: Northern Italy is Europe’s hotspot for Wuhan Coronavirus.”
This means that the Chinese are only “helping” their own investments in Italy. They don’t give a damn about their own people, why would they care about the Italians? It’s the investments that they care about, not the people.
And yet, you have idiots like Ian Bremmer saying that China is better because they are “helping” the Italians while we are cutting off travel there. This guy is doing the bidding of the Chinese and the larger Enemy of the People, the Mainstream Media, is peddling Chinese propaganda and legitimizing the conspiracy theories coming out of China.
And then they wonder why exactly it is that we and the President of the United States call them “the enemy of the people”. What a bad joke these people are.

This is something I have said before, but it bears repeating: the Left HATES Christians, hates Christianity, hates Jesus and hates anyone who follows Him, believing such people to be nothing but foolish and naïve science deniers who believe in fairy tales. They loathe our worship of the Lord and view it with nothing but contempt and mockery.
That is the precise response some Leftists in the mainstream media had to President Trump appointing Vice President Mike Pence to lead the Coronavirus Task Force and to Vice President Pence praying alongside the CTF in a photo (above).
The New Yorker, after President Trump appointed VP Pence to lead the Coronavirus Task Force, shared a cartoon of the Vice President with the caption: “We remind everyone that the first defense against this outbreak is vigorous handwashing and repentance.”
Days later, a contributing writer for The NYT Magazine tweeted out the picture of Pence and the CTF praying, stating: “Mike Pence and his coronavirus emergency team praying for a solution. We are so screwed.”
Do you see how little these heathens think of Christians and those who pray to God? Funny how they would never dare say the same if they saw a picture of Muslims praying to Allah about the same thing. They would applaud their commitment to their religious beliefs, but when Christians pray to the Lord, we are mocked. Not that this comes as any surprise.
These godless people do not understand the power of prayer. They outright mock it whenever a mass shooting occurs (which is nowhere near as often as they would want us to believe) and people offer prayers for those affected. They are devoid of any sense of reverence to God in their unbelief, somehow believing that everything came to be out of pure chance, and have the nerve to claim that we are the illogical ones for believing in God.
Verses such as Philippians 4:6: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God,” and Mark 11:24: “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours,” and others that highlight the power of God through prayer are utterly meaningless to these people.
They legitimately believe that we came from MONKEYS despite all of the massive holes in Darwin’s theory and even its origin, and yet, do not believe in the God of the Universe.
It’s worth pointing out that, obviously, prayer is not the only thing the vice president and the CTF are doing. Unlike what some Leftists might sarcastically suggest, they are not “praying the virus away”, or at least, that’s not all they are doing. They are praying to the Lord, who has total and absolute control over everything that happens, that He give them strength in dealing with this, wisdom in how to tackle it, and success in minimizing the influence and effect of the virus so that as many people may survive it and so that this can be put behind us.
The seventh question of the Westminster Confession of Faith asks “what are the decrees of God?” The answer is: “The decrees of God are, His eternal purpose, according to the counsel of His will, whereby for His own glory, He hath foreordained whatsoever comes to pass.” This means that God has, for His eternal purpose and His own glory, preordained whatever comes to pass, such as a coronavirus outbreak. It wouldn’t happen if God did not ordain for it to happen. That is not the same as saying God caused it or it’s His fault, because God is the Healer, whereas Satan is the destroyer. However, He has allowed it and the Vice President, as well as the others in that picture, understanding the power of the Lord, are praying that He give them the tools to deal with it and that He would allow for this virus to be defeated.
And while I know that the Westminster Confession of Faith is a Presbyterian document, I don’t think too many Christians would disagree with the notion that God is absolutely in control of everything that happens, because if even one molecule in this universe were not under the complete and utter control of God, He would cease to be God.
Unfortunately, this is where many on the Left and general unbelievers would retort with “if God is so good then why does He allow these things to happen” which can be difficult sometimes to explain. I couldn’t imagine trying to explain to someone who has suffered throughout their life why God, who is so good, or is regarded by Christians as being so good, would allow for such suffering to happen. The best I could imagine myself doing would be pointing out the story of Joseph, how he was betrayed by his brothers, hated by them, thrown into a pit, be rescued by them only to be then sold into slavery, be falsely accused of trying to have sexual intercourse with his master’s wife and be thrown into prison for years and how if anyone had any “right” to be angry at God, it was him, and yet, he never abandoned his faith in God. Eventually, as we all know, through the path that he took, despite how rocky it was, Joseph became the second-leading ruler of Egypt only behind Pharaoh, and saved millions of lives as a result of that appointment.
The point of that is to say that, even when things are at their bleakest and we wonder where God is, we have to remember that God is there, working behind the scenes, for our good. Some may look at what’s happening with the coronavirus and mock Pence and the others for praying to a God who would allow this to happen, but the VP and other fellow Christians know the goodness and the love of God, know who He is and that He wouldn’t allow for this to happen for no reason. Whether that reason be an individual one where someone with the virus or someone who has family with the virus turns to the Lord and repents of their sins, or a larger reason, such as forcing companies to understand the perils of being so dependent on a communist nation that can’t do jack to protect itself and turn away from it to keep their businesses from being hurt like that in the future. I mean, 80% of our medicine comes from China! Maybe this will force some businesses to reevaluate their desire to work with the Chinese and focus on other countries (if not the U.S.).
People who do not know the Lord look at us Christians in contempt and think of us as monkeys who believe in fairy tales. They think prayer, despite the power that it has, is completely worthless. But God, as previously stated, is the one in control. It is through Him that anything at all happens. And God is delighted when His children pray to Him, asking for salvation of their soul or simply to be strong in the face of trouble.
We pray, not because we are without hope, but because we are full of hope, knowing the goodness of God. We humble ourselves before Him, bowing our heads to Him in prayer. The simple looks at these actions and thinks little of them, while God looks at them and is delighted.
Do I know what will happen with this coronavirus? No. I am not God, after all. However, we know from Romans 8:28 that “God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.” Like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, we will obey the Lord and trust that He will deliver us from earthly perils, and that even if He doesn’t, we will not be shaken in our faith.
Those three were threatened to be thrown into a blazing fire so hot that it killed the Babylonian guards that were trying to put them in there. The only thing that burned upon being thrown into the fire was the rope that bound them together, with Nebuchadnezzar questioning why there were four people in the cauldron and not three, with the extra person looking like one who was like “the Son of God”.
We trust in the Lord and His ways, knowing that they are greater than ours, and thus, we pray to Him both in times of great need and of great abundance; in times of suffering and times of joy. I am so glad that Vice President Pence is a man of faith, one who knows God and His goodness, and leads his CTF team in prayer while searching for ways to mitigate the problem.
God is good; remember that.

CNN, the most laughable name in news, has recently been trending thanks to a viral clip of a segment showing CNN host Don Lemon, far-Left opinion writer Wajahat Ali and Never Trump traitor Rick Wilson mocking and insulting Trump supporters’ intelligence, education and even insinuating that we are illiterate.
Speaking about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his altercation with a Left-wing NPR reporter who lied to Pompeo and broke an off-the-record agreement the two of them had and he asked her to identify Ukraine on a map (she couldn’t), the three stooges made sure to back the Left-wing NPR reporter and lambast not only Pompeo, but Trump and everyone who supports him.
Covering the most relevant parts for this article, Rick Wilson eventually said: “[Pompeo] also knows deep in his heart that Donald Trump couldn’t find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it. He knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world, and so that’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience, you know, credulous boomer demo that back Donald Trump, that wants to think that Donald Trump’s a smart one, and y’all – y’all elitists are dumb.”
Ali continued with the mockery: “You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling even though –“ and he was interrupted by Wilson continuing his own mockery: “Your math, your reading.”
Throughout all this, of course, Don Lemon is laughing his butt off, finding it extremely hilarious to mock people in a very elitist way (with zero sense of self-awareness of their elitist mockery).
Now, I am not the least bit surprised to see people with darkness filling their hearts mocking Trump and his administration and his supporters. These are people who, at the same time, will “call for unity” while lambasting the side that does not agree with everything they have to say. These are people who honestly believe the b.s. they sell to their audience and could not properly identify how many genders there are, all-the-while flaunting Harvard and Yale degrees like they are worthwhile treasures that only the best of the best are able to obtain and as though they should be revered as gods for having such “education” (even though college is more for indoctrination).
I am not surprised one bit by this, because this is far from the first time CNN has decided to show pure, unadulterated hatred for those whom they honestly despise and wish they could rid the world of. I’ve already written an entire article dedicated to how much of a hypocritical slime ball Don Lemon is for, in the same breath, calling for an end to “demonizing” others and proceeding to demonize others. I’ve also covered another segment in which Lemon and other guests on his show mocked Kanye West shortly after demonstrating he supported Trump by saying that “Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read.”
Don Lemon has a long history of being a hypocritical, hateful idiot who either piles onto the hate or laughs at the face of it. I can guarantee that if a segment on Fox News had done this about Obama supporters in the Midwest, there would be a full nuclear meltdown about it, with everyone involved in that segment being forced to apologize, alongside the entire network, and with petitions to take Fox News off the air.
But because this is about them “dumb” Trump supporters who “can’t read, can’t spell, can’t find countries on maps” (btw, a Morning Consult poll back in the beginning of the year asked people to identify Iran on a map and only 27% of Democrats could find it, as opposed to 28% of Republicans and 31% of Independents, so who is it really that can’t find countries on maps?), “can’t do math, and are so intellectually-deficient as to subject themselves to vote for Trump”, it is perfectly acceptable to throw by the wayside any semblance of tolerance or love or compassion that they claim to have for others and it is perfectly acceptable that such people get this kind of treatment from a major news organization that really can’t afford to play so loosely with their ratings.
The people that profess tolerance display none of it. The people that claim to be professionals showcase their unprofessionalism. The people who swear they are bearers of truth spew lies and slander about others. The people who claim to want to “save America” show their true hatred for it and those who even might slightly dissent from their collective thought. The people that claim to hold valuable knowledge and superior intelligence will deny science and spout science fiction all for the sake of an agenda where the Democrat Party gets more and more power and these idiots somehow think they will have some share in that.
Again, I am not at all surprised that the network that ran the Russian hoax for two and a half years, still pretty much does, and continues to lie about Trump and Ukraine, would, once again, display their utter contempt for those that refuse to vote as they do. When hatred fills your heart, this is what you tend to do: display it for all to see. They just think there are enough people out there who absolutely agree with them and are laughing with them at Trump supporters that it’s perfectly okay to do this and they would suffer zero repercussions.
They hate Donald Trump, they hate you, they hate what you stand for and, in all likelihood, even if they never admit it, would agree with the Bernie supporters in the Project Veritas videos about sending Trump supporters off to “re-education camps”. Their viewpoints are so fragile that they cannot stand that there are those who disagree and display that contempt with mockery and open hatred, with some honestly wishing in their hearts that we would get sent to concentration camps to be “re-educated” or killed if we do not comply.
This, alongside many other reasons (primarily abortion) is why I say the Left is satanic and the Democrat Party is the party of Satan. The hate that they foster in their hearts comes from Lucifer himself and they do his bidding happily. Any notion that Jesus might be able to save them is met with an allergic reaction from these people, coupled with even more mockery.
The good news for them is that if Saul of Tarsus, who went around looking for Christians to persecute and execute, can be saved, then there is a possibility that these people might as well. I often note the doctrine of predestination (which some Christians do not believe in, but I assure you, there is plenty about it in the Bible) and how God chooses to save some. That doctrine, I believe, is very much sound and applicable, but God is the only one who knows whom He will save and whom He will not save. He is the only one who decides on whom His mercy will be shown and on whom it will not.
This is why I do not necessarily say that any one of these Leftists, on an individual basis, is destined for Hell. They are, currently in their unsaved states, Hell-bound, but God chooses whom He will save and He might save one or two or all three of them at one point or another. Is it likely? Not from what I can tell, but it definitely is possible with God. Again, Saul of Tarsus, who was essentially an elitist like these people in his own time (possibly the most highly educated person of his time) went around in search of Christians to arrest and prosecute, which would often lead to death and the Lord Jesus came to him and saved his soul, later becoming an extremely important apostle (having written almost half of the books in the New Testament) and changing his name to Paul.
If one were to make comparisons, that would be like Jesus converting a Nazi brownshirt in search of Jews (sort of). If Saul could be saved, just about anyone could be as well. That doesn’t mean that they will be saved, as again, God is the one to make that decision and is not going to leave people’s salvation up to chance (which, as I have said many times in the past, is nothing more than mathematical probability and does not have any inherent power), but it does mean that they might be.
Right now, of course, as far as Don Lemon, Rick Wilson and Wajahat Ali go, I cannot tell what is in their hearts (apart from hatred) or what lays for them in the future. However, I do hope and pray that they will be saved by the Lord and they will turn from their hatred. I pray this, not because they deserve the Lord’s forgiveness, grace or mercy, because they do not, but because it would be better for them to turn to God than continue down the path they are on. It can be hard to love your enemies (and this is something I often have trouble with), but we are still commanded to do so. We are to love our neighbors and our enemies, praying for them that they might turn to the Lord for their salvation.
This does not take away from the unprofessionalism and the vile display of hatred that they showed on live television. That should be totally rebuked and excoriated and I believe Trump will make a campaign ad out of it (at least, he should) to remind everyone what the elitist Left thinks of us. But beyond anything else, we should at least pray for their souls to be saved and for their hearts to be turned to the Lord, away from the hatred of Satan and towards the love of God. Will it happen? Only God knows and only God decides.

We all know that the Left lives in a perpetual state of anger, outrage and offense, where they look for any and all reasons to be angry at something or someone and feel like some sort of tragic victim who is due some sort of justice. But recently, Leftists have been outraged at something particularly odd: the fact that an openly conservative Hollywood star shows that he is openly conservative.
You see, recently, President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended the College Football National Championship game between LSU and Clemson University, where he received great cheers and standing ovations from the crowd, with the crowd also chanting “USA” upon seeing him.
However, that is not what the Left will choose to cover (can’t show that Trump is popular, because that would go against the narrative that the vast majority of this country hates and detests him). Also in attendance of this game was Hollywood star Vince Vaughn, who got the opportunity to have a conversation with the President of the United States and First Lady during the game and even shake the president's hand as shown above.
A camera recorded this occasion and sports “journalist” Timothy Burke tweeted out the video with the caption: “I’m very sorry to have to share this video with you. All of it, every part of it,” as though he was mourning the fact that a Hollywood celebrity who is not shy about his conservative beliefs was holding a civil conversation with Trump.
Of course, I do actually know why he and other Leftists were outraged. Hollywood is supposed to be THEIRS. At every awards show, in every movie, Leftist ideology must be not only shared but shoved down our throats and any contradicting ideology must be pushed down and obliterated. Hosts who make jokes at the expense of the woke celebrities must be lambasted (such as Ricky Gervais) and celebrities who dissent from the Leftist ideology in any way must be blacklisted and publicly shamed.
The “journalist” appeared to be mourning because he essentially was. Vince Vaughn is a beloved actor in Hollywood, having appeared or starred in many great comedies like Anchorman, Dodgeball, Wedding Crashers, and other movies. He is still working as an actor and producer in various films to this day, so his open conservatism hasn’t derailed his career like it has for other actors.
Vince Vaughn is still popular and beloved, so it apparently hurts the snowflake Left when they see him amicably and civilly speaking with the POTUS. You see, in their mind, even if you are a conservative, you should hate Trump. Even if you are a conservative, right-winger, you should still be on the side of the Left, at least when it comes to Trump, and given the opportunity, you should be seen yelling and screaming like a madman at Trump or cursing him out, or at least, actively avoiding him and/or trying to embarrass him. No one is allowed to like Trump, no one is allowed to have a dissenting opinion. Everyone is supposed to hold the same views as the Left, or they should be cancelled.
Of course, Burke got blasted for his inability to believe that someone, particularly someone like Vince Vaughn, would actually have the gall to be civil in the presence of Trump:
“You’ve successfully proven that Vince Vaughn is a Republican, that thing he has taken no effort to hide,” wrote Alex Griswold. He followed that up by saying: “DM me dude, I have a GIANT scoop about Jon Voight,” who is also another prominent conservative in Hollywood.
Marc Thiessen tweeted: “OMG the humanity! This is terrible! We must all hate Vince Vaughn! You would have done great under Stalin.”
Carpe Donktum, a known conservative meme-maker whose memes often get retweeted by conservatives and sometimes even by the President, tweeted: “Man, I just can’t believe how bold some of these Hollywood people are becoming, first Ricky, and now Vince. If this keeps up people might realize that they live in a free country, and it’s ok to have different opinions than the ones shouted at you on TV.”
If you remember, I recently wrote an article showing us just how few liberals there actually are in this country, with that number being just below 25%. In Hollywood, one would assume that at least 90% of the people there are liberal, so it can be rather rare to see a conservative Hollywood celebrity or star, but they do exist. And in the Left’s mind, that is horrible. As I said in the article about the number of liberals in the country, they are few in number so they have to be loud to pretend to be the mainstream opinion.
Virtually every Hollywood movie and every TV show produced today must bear a hyper-liberal message. A new Star Trek is being made? It should tackle Trump and Brexit (even though it’s literally set hundreds of years in the future, but I guess Trump is still going to be president in the 2360s and Britain will still be trying to leave the European Union) and point out how both of those things are not only bad, but are dangerous and violent for literally everyone. Trump is president and he continues winning electorally? Let’s make a movie about hunting and killing conservatives. More people tend to be okay with homosexuality as time goes on? Good, let’s overrepresent gay people as much as possible in films and tv, even though they are about 5% of the population, if that, and have “gay rights” organizations yell at us for not representing gay people enough anyway.
Movies that present a different ideology, or even just don’t shove the Leftist ideology down people’s throats, are labeled as “problematic”, “controversial” or “irresponsible”, such as the movie “1917”, which is about WWI but it doesn’t feature transgender military generals ordering a sufficiently marginalized, foreign, strong and independent woman of color to singlehandedly beat the Nazis (I know Nazis are from WWII, but the enemy would be treated as Nazis, as we generally are) all while flying the rainbow flag and denouncing white privilege and the United States and a president who wouldn’t be born for roughly another 30 years, so it’s labeled as “irresponsibly nationalistic”.
Any semblance of dissent must be culled, in the Left’s mind, and this has been the modus operandi for ages. The Chinese do it to this day. The Iranians do it. The Russians do it and did it often when they were the Soviet Union. In any dictatorship, where there is dissenting opinion, there are mysterious disappearances and killings. The American Left wishes they could be the dictators of the U.S., as dictators rule harshly in other countries. (Project Veritas recently released a video showing Bernie Sanders campaign staffers wishing to send Trump supporters to “reeducation camps” to “de-Nazify” us, so these people are no different from the commies in the USSR).
For Vince Vaugh to not only be conservative but also to be civil in the face of Trump, it is to be treated as a tragedy. Which is a little odd because, again, he is openly conservative. Back in 2013, he gave an interview where he said: “I think that… as you get older, you just get less trust in the government running anything. And that you start to realize when you really go back and look at the Constitution and the principles of liberty, the real purpose of government is to protect the individual’s right to sort of think and pursue what they have interest in. And that when you start drawing the lines, saying, as a society, we think this is inappropriate, we’re going to pass laws to protect them from themselves and/or take things away to protect themselves or move money from here to there, that you realize that you wake up with corruption and… you’ll wake up with a lot of problems that didn’t exist prior.”
It really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that Vince Vaughn is a conservative, but again, the tragedy, I suppose, is that he didn’t yell at Trump like a decent human being would… or something dumb like that.
Thankfully, considering so many people already know that Vaughn is a conservative, and considering he still gets work in Lefty Hollywood, to the dismay of this particular sports “journalist”, I doubt he will be cancelled over this. Someone might get angry with him and lambast him or bash him on the internet, but he will be fine. But this does, sadly, go to show just how valueless basic civility is nowadays when being seen holding a conversation with someone the Left hates is considered some sort of devastating tragedy and when the expectation by the Left is that the President would be verbally assaulted.
“A worthless person, a wicked man, goes about with crooked speech, winks with his eyes, signals with his feet, points with his finger, with perverted heart devises evil, continually sowing discord; therefore calamity will come upon him suddenly; in a moment he will be broken beyond healing.”
