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.”

Back in late October, the Trump administration greenlit an operation to kill the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which resulted in a raid on his compound and the terrorist to blow himself up (alongside three of his children) to avoid being killed or arrested by U.S. forces. Following this raid, the Left went into a fit because we killed the leader of ISIS, proving even more that they are adamantly against the United States.
In early January of 2020, following an attack on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, Iraq, which was orchestrated by Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, an Iranian general who once visited the Obama White House and has killed hundreds, if not thousands, of Americans, the United States used an MQ-9 Reaper drone to fire missiles at a convoy of terrorists leaving Baghdad International Airport. This strike not only killed dozens of terrorists, but it has been confirmed now by State Department officials that one of the deaths was the aforementioned general Soleimani.
Retired Lt. Col. James Carafano said: “The reported deaths of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani and the Iraqi commander of the militia that killed an American last week was a bold and decisive military action made possible by excellent intelligence and the courage of America’s service members. His death is a huge loss for Iran’s regime and its Iraqi proxies, and a major operational and psychological victory for the United States.”
Phillip Smyth, an expert on Iran-controlled Shia militias and the Middle East at the Washington Institute said: “This is a major blow. I would argue that this is probably the most major decapitation strike the United States has ever carried out… This is a man who controlled a transnational foreign legion that was controlling governments in numerous different countries… He had a hell of a lot of power and a hell of a lot of control. You have to be a strong leader in order to get these people to work with you, know how and when to play them off one another, and also know which Iranians do I need within the IRGC-QF (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force, a designated terrorist organization), which Lebanese do I need which, Iraqis do I need… that’s not something you can just pick up at a local five and dime. It takes decades of experience.”
Other military experts agreed that the killing of Soleimani was more significant than bin Laden or al-Baghdadi.
The Pentagon said in a statement: “General Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the nation. This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans. The United States will continue to take all necessary action to protect our people and our interests wherever they are around the world.”
The Pentagon also said that Soleimani had orchestrated numerous attacks on U.S.-led coalition bases in Iraq over the last few months, including an attack on December 27th, which killed an American contractor and wounded U.S. servicemembers as well as Iraqi personnel.
Carafano also said: “The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps… led by Suleimani, was responsible for the deaths of more than 600 Americans in Iraq between 2003-2011, and countless more injured. He was a chief architect behind Iran’s continuing reign of terror in the region. This strike against one of the world’s most odious terrorists is no different than the mission which took out Osama bin Laden – it is, in fact, even more justifiable since he was in a foreign country directing terrorist attacks against Americans.”
Suffice to say that Soleimani was an evil piece of crap and no one but the bad guys would miss him. Enter the American Left, the fake news media and even a Hollywood elite being adamantly against this operation to kill a top enemy of the United States.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) complained on Twitter: “Soleimani was an enemy of the United States. That’s not a question. The question is this – as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?”
A couple of things to say about this. First, I don’t remember Democrats complaining when Obama didn’t notify them that we would be killing bin Laden. That’s because the Commander-in-Chief does not need to notify Congress that he is going to kill a terrorist. These idiots also complained that Trump didn’t notify them that he was killing Baghdadi. The reason being that he didn’t want the secret of the operation being spread, potentially saving Baghdadi and putting American servicemembers’ lives in danger. Granted, we used a drone instead of armed forces this time around, but we know just how partisan these people are. They would’ve blabbed about targeting Soleimani in an effort to save his life and keep Trump from scoring any political victory.
How do I know these people are partisan hacks? Aside from EVERYTHING they’ve done over the past few years, look at how these people are reacting to these news. Instead of being elated that an objectively EVIL guy is dead, they all let their Trump Derangement Syndrome take over and are DEFENDING Iran.
Just three days ago, and moving on to the second point I wanted to make, Sen. Chris Murphy also tweeted the following regarding the attack on our embassy: “The attack on our embassy in Baghdad is horrifying but predictable. Trump has rendered America impotent in the Middle East. No one fears us, no one listens to us. America has been reduced to huddling in safe rooms, hoping the bad guys will go away. What a disgrace.”
Three days ago, Murphy was complaining that we weren’t doing anything and claimed that America was “impotent” in the Middle East because of Trump (totally ignoring the fact that Benghazi was attacked under Obama’s watch and he did nothing to help there). Fast-forward three days and now he’s complaining about taking action against THE GUY WHO ORCHESTRATED THE ATTACK ON THE EMBASSY?!
Not that I find this the least bit surprising. They will attack Trump regardless of what he does. He doesn’t do something against terrorists who attacked our embassy? “Trump is weak”. He does something against terrorists who attacked our embassy? “Trump just started World War III”. It’s all a load of b.s. and no one in their right mind would take these people seriously for even a second.
But moving on to the other anti-American traitors, we find none other than the Washington Post, the official terrorist mourning organization, reporting: “Breaking news: Airstrike at Baghdad airport kills Iran’s most revered military leader, Qasem Soleimani, Iraqi state television reports.”
Don’t know if this quite beats “austere religious scholar” but it’s an embarrassment that it can come so close. Soleimani, as previously explained, was not Iran’s most “revered military leader”. He was a terrorist piece of garbage responsible for the deaths of hundreds of servicemembers and possibly thousands of Americans. And the only ones that “revered” the demon were people within the terrorist regime.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shared a video on Twitter of Iraqis “dancing on the street for freedom; thankful that General Soleimani is no more.” And why would they be happy at Soleimani’s death? Because he was also the guy responsible for the deaths and kidnappings of protesters that had been troubling the terrorist regime for years in the neighboring country (reportedly, he caused the deaths of upwards of 500 people and injured another 20,000 protesters). We killed the guy who helped oppress the people of IRAQ and the people of Iraq are thankful.
Of course, this doesn’t stop the Left from further trying to paint Trump as a “warmonger” who just ignited the third World War and are cowering at what Iran might do in retaliation (because they were clearly oh, so peaceful before we killed Soleimani).
Despite the very clear evidence that Soleimani was a terrorist and that this was an attack in response to him ORCHESTRATING an attack on OUR embassy, the Left says that this is an act of war. By no means. This is an act of self-defense as a result of that attack on our embassy. It is an act of retribution for the THOUSANDS of American, not to mention Iranian and Iraqi lives, that he helped to take. It is an act of strength to show the terrorist regime that Obama is not president anymore and they can’t get away with whatever they want anymore.
This will not lead to World War III. I doubt this will even lead to full-blown war against Iran. Richard Engel said that “Iranians will consider US killing Soleimani an act of war. A proxy war could erupt. Likely in Iraq, but also a danger in Lebanon and Israel. This is a big escalation.” To which I say: Soleimani was already orchestrating numerous proxy wars in the region anyway. I don’t care if they consider this an act of war or an act of crapping on their sandwich; they will say whatever they want to justify further actions (and the media will be delighted by such actions). At most, this would cause a proxy war, but nothing more severe than that. If Iran actually had the means to fight us in a war, there’d be nothing stopping them from doing so. Unlike ISIS or al-Qaeda terrorists, Iran can’t go into hiding.
Now, Leftists could say: “See? This will only make things worse. This will cause the Iranians to attack us.” They were already attacking us and they have been FOR DECADES. It’s not like Trump attacked the Iranians unprovoked. They have been pulling crap against us, plotting and funding terrorist acts against us for decades at this point, pretty much since the Mullahs took over in 1979. Killing Soleimani will help deter future terrorist acts simply due to how many he was responsible for and was in the process of planning.
But what is perhaps the worst part of the Left’s clear betrayal of this country was something that actress Rose McGowan tweeted:
“Dear Iran, the USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us.” She also tweeted a gif of what appears to be an Iranian flag, but edited to have a sun emoji and a lion emoji in the middle part, for some reason.
But regardless of that strange gif, it is pretty clear how spineless the Left is. Thankfully, McGowan does not represent the U.S. and the VAST MAJORITY of Americans are happy that a terrorist is dead. One Twitter user, who claims to be Iranian, replied to her: “I’m Iranian by birth. Iranians are happy. Do you realize that this guy was [a] psychopath? Part of a group that tortured, raped, sodomized its own citizens? Do you have any f***ing clue or do you just want attention? Soleimani makes Harvey Weinstein look like a saint. Let that sink!”
I would assume McGowan wants as much attention as Jane Fonda did by siding with the Vietcongs. Back then, it was Hanoi Jane. Today, we have Tehran McGowan, it seems. These idiot Leftists have zero clue what they are talking about and most likely have never even heard of Soleimani before recently, otherwise, they really wouldn’t be calling Trump’s administration the “terrorist regime” here.
The Left does not support the United States. They hate it when we succeed. They hate it when we win at any capacity. They think we should be groveling on the ground, begging for other countries’ “forgiveness” for our “past sins” and “transgressions”. If you need any more proof that the Left hates this country, look at what they are doing right this moment.

All things considered, almost all of the stories I write about showcase the Left’s twisted logic and ideals, whether it be relating to climate change or transgenderism or socialism, etc., we really are in no short supply of such stories. But I would like to point out two particular recent stories that really put into perspective just how twisted the Left’s logic and ideals are and how truly evil they are.
Let’s begin with MSNBC’s Joy Reid hoping that the raid on the Baghdad embassy would have turned like Benghazi.
For a bit of context, if you haven’t been playing very close attention to the situation, Hezbollah supporters attempted to raid the U.S. embassy in Baghdad because of an attack that successfully eliminated dozens of terrorists from Kataeb Hezbollah (and the fake news media, always siding against the U.S., opted to call them “protesters” and “mourners” instead of terrorist-sympathizers and supporters).
What Joy Reid did was reply to a tweet from a bot account that noted the fact that Trump had tweeted on Tuesday: “Read the Transcripts!” in relation to the transcripts of the July 25th phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky (though not sure why this was tweeted, since the impeachment story died pretty much as soon as the House voted to impeach Trump). Reid’s reply read as follows: “As Trump’s Benghazi unfolds in Iraq…”
Keep in mind that the embassy in Baghdad had diplomats and servicemembers trapped in there for hours and they were threatened with actual violence, as the “protesters” outside were chanting the usual “death to America” chants, as well as “down, down USA” and “death to Israel” chants. They could’ve caused some serious damage and actually might’ve killed some people, but Trump, unlike Obama, actually sent reinforcements to help and drive away the mob.
It’s worth mentioning the massive backlash that Reid received from a number of different people.
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: “’Trump’s Benghazi’ was handled with decisive action, like an actual leader would respond. The response (since they actually bothered to respond, unlike Obama/Crooked [Hillary]) was really the anti-Benghazi response! You’re welcome.”
Former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright (who is a Democrat, to be fair, though you wouldn’t know it from this) tweeted: “’Trump’s Benghazi’ is now ending with no dead Ambassador, no dead service members, and the enemy withdrawing. A disappointing conclusion for Joy Reid and The Resistance, no doubt, but a great day for America.”
Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted: “What’s wrong with you? Is partisan hatred really that deep? We root for American soldiers, not against them.”
Yes, her partisan hatred is that deep that she would gladly trade away the lives of multiple service members and diplomats in exchange for the opportunity to attack Trump on what would’ve been his Benghazi if he weren’t an actual leader and an actual president, unlike the last one.
Trump actually sent help because he doesn’t hate this country and those who serve it, unlike Obama, who left four Americans for dead in Benghazi. But Leftists like Joy Reid were really hoping this would turn out like Benghazi, if not far worse with considerably more bloodshed, all for the opportunity to politicize the ever-living crap out of it and use it as a weapon against Trump’s reelection.
To the Left, if a Republican is in the White House, particularly one that they really hate and isn’t willing to kiss the ground they walk on, it’s worth it to sacrifice the lives of our OWN SOLDIERS and diplomats if that’s what it takes to score a political victory. The deaths of everyone inside that embassy would’ve been worth it if the fake news media got to talk about it at length all throughout 2020 to try and get Trump out of the White House.
This is only one of the many examples of the Left’s twisted logic and ideals. But let us now move on to the next one.
This one is less of a story and more of an opinion piece as a result of a particular story. If you remember, I recently wrote an article about “Why People Have The Right To Defend Themselves” and in that article, I talked about a recent shooting in a Texas church that was thwarted thanks in part to a firearms instructor who shot the shooter and prevented more blood from being shed that Sunday morning.
Something I failed to mention in that story is the fact that, while the hero, Jack Wilson, was the one to stop the shooter, at least SIX other churchgoers were seen on video having pulled out their own guns and looking for the shooter, showing the restraint to not shoot randomly and risking causing more damage. So, at the very least, there were SEVEN people with guns in that church (not counting the shooter, who was a convicted criminal with no legal right to own guns and yet, still had one) and an opinion writer for USA Today thought it was “terrifying” that there would be any churchgoers aside from a firearms instructor who were carrying guns inside the church.
Yeah, the op-ed writer said it was “terrifying” that Christians were able to DEFEND THEMSELVES inside a church.
Elvia Diaz, the op-ed writer, wrote: “Texas has one of the nation’s least restrictive gun laws, including allowing armed security at houses of worship and allowing parishioners to bring their weapons to church. Gun advocates didn’t waste any time after the recent church incident to promote the idea of arming oneself.”
She writes that like the idea of arming oneself is bad, but that’s probably what she actually thinks. She thinks it’s bad that people are able to defend themselves, which is what I said in the beginning of that aforementioned article regarding people having the right to defend themselves: “People have the right to defend themselves. This much is factual and you would think there’d be no one who would disagree, but the Left, in all their inglorious stupidity (or evil), disagrees with this notion…”. That is literally the first two sentences of that article and Diaz is THE example of the kind of person I talked about there.
She doesn’t think people have the right to defend themselves and finds it “terrifying” that they do. Regardless, she continued: “The Second Amendment gives Americans the right to bear arms. And that isn’t going anywhere. But that constitutional amendment doesn’t spell out the types of firearms Americans should bear, nor does it give Americans the right to sell them to anyone to carry anywhere.”
Two points to make here. First of all, the argument of “the Founding Fathers never pictured assault weapons when writing the Second Amendment” is extremely stupid. Of course they didn’t picture it. THEY HADN’T BEEN INVENTED YET. But at the same time, they never specified that the people could only have a particular firearm BECAUSE THAT WOULD DEFEAT THE PURPOSE OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT.
I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again because it bears repeating: the Second Amendment wasn’t created for people to go hunting. It wasn’t created for people to protect their homes (though that’s a side benefit). It was created for people to defend themselves against a tyrannical government. “Spelling out the types of firearms Americans should bear” would go against the Founding Fathers’ intentions. They wanted an American populace to be able to defend itself against a tyrannical government should the need arise. Back then, just about everyone had muskets, pistols and horses, whether they be soldiers or farmers (and the soldiers back then, at least a good number of them, were farmers). The Founding Fathers wanted people to be able to defend themselves against a tyrannical government and if they could’ve envisioned the creation of “assault” weapons like the ones we have today, they would’ve allowed for people to have them.
Secondly, it does give Americans the right to sell them to anyone to carry anywhere. Existing laws in the books are what prohibit such a thing, for the most part, and even then, not entirely. Americans (with the legal ability to sell guns) have the right to sell them to just about anyone (who passes background checks and the like) to carry anywhere they are allowed to (not in gun-free zones, but that sure as hell doesn’t stop bad guys from doing it, which is why gun-free zones are idiotic and dangerous).
But regardless of these arguments, Diaz actually inadvertently makes a case AGAINST GUN CONTROL in her op-ed: “Sunday’s shooting isn’t just about Jack Wilson’s heroism. It’s about how [the shooter] got a hold of a weapon in the first place, given his criminal record.”
She accidentally recognizes that gun laws in place aren’t going to keep CRIMINALS WHO, BY DEFINITION, DON’T OBEY THE LAW from obtaining guns and using them at their pleasure. Again, the shooter was a criminal BEFORE the shooting, and didn’t have a right to own a weapon, and yet, because he is a CRIMINAL, he had one anyway and intended to use it against churchgoers and cause as much damage and pain as possible. No gun law that exists today or could be conceived would’ve prevented the shooting in that church. But a good guy with a gun, and if need be, several other parishioners willing to defend themselves and their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, kept that shooting from being one of the worst ones in recent time.
The Left vehemently denies the power of the good guy with a gun EVEN WHEN TALKING ABOUT A STORY WHERE SUCH A GUY IS PRESENT.
Suffice to say that USA Today received major backlash for this piece.
Evan Todd, a survivor of the Columbine shooting, tweeted: “I stared down the barrel of a gun at Columbine, where 13 people were murdered and almost 30 wounded. I wished then and now that we had a Jack Wilson that fateful day. The world would be a better place if there were more men and women like Jack Wilson…”
Michael Malice tweeted: “Freedom is terrifying, insists the enemy of the people… This is the entire point of concealed carry, that murderers et al don’t know who around them is packing.”
Congressional candidate Lisa Sutton tweeted: “What’s terrifying is your attempt to downplay a heroic act by law abiding Americans, who were focused on stopping an evil person from inflicting harm upon others.”
Diaz found it “terrifying” that there were people in that church who were not firearms instructors and had access to guns. She writes that, while much is known about Wilson, nothing is known about the other parishioners who were seen wielding weapons. Why does it matter whether anything is known about them? THEY DIDN’T FIRE A SHOT AND THEY WEREN’T THE CRIMINAL! Jack Wilson stopped the shooter, so it makes sense to find out about him. The shooter was the evil s.o.b. that intended to kill many people that day, so it makes sense to find out about him. But why would it be important or necessary to find out about the others who were only ready to fight if they had to?
Again, they showed restraint and didn’t fire a single shot, not wanting to cause harm to anyone. That tells me that they have undergone at least some training with their firearms to be comfortable wielding them while also being extremely cautious. This is what JUST ABOUT EVERY LEGAL GUN OWNER DOES! The Left tries to paint legal gun owners as people who are just as sick and depraved as those who would shoot up schools, churches, etc. when reality is the exact opposite. Want to know what a legal gun owner looks like? Look at the people of the church in White Settlement. One of them acted and fired upon the shooter once he confirmed who it was. The other six were ready to join the fight if necessary but kept themselves from causing unnecessary harm to anyone. THAT is a gun owner, not the crazy demons that the Left makes us out to be.
But again, this piece is another example of the Left’s twisted logic and ideals. The writer of this op-ed found it “terrifying” that LEGAL GUN OWNERS COULD DEFEND THEMSELVES IN A PLACE OF WORSHIP. She even tried to blame this shooting on Gov. Abbott and the law that allows for people to carry in a place of worship when it’s because of that law (and the Grace of God, of course) that the shooting didn’t turn out much worse.
Evil will always look to do evil; you can’t legislate it into non-existence. But you can allow for good people to do something about it and not constrain them. That’s what that law aimed to do and what that law successfully accomplished. But to the Left, that’s not a good thing in the least.
Diaz says gun advocates quickly jumped on that story to advocate in favor of gun ownership. And that’s true because THIS IS A PERFECT STORY TO CONVINCE PEOPLE TO ARM THEMSELVES. As Diaz noted, the criminal had access to a gun, despite gun laws prohibiting him from doing so. This PROVES that criminals (since some people apparently need proof of this) don’t care for the law in the least and will do what they want. The best counter to such criminals is a good guy (or multiple guys) with a gun.
Think about the way shootings are prevented or stopped. When you hear of a potential shooting having taken place but was ultimately prevented, you hear of police or someone with a gun keeping the shooter from killing as many people as they could. The law is just a piece of paper that is utterly meaningless without those to enforce it. No law has ever prevented a shooting. PEOPLE have prevented shootings. More specifically, ARMED people have prevented shootings. And when they aren’t prevented, they are thwarted by such people.
This, in the mind of the Left, is not a good thing because it robs them of the ability to advocate for gun control, which only exacerbates the problem of shootings. These people are sick and twisted.

In an article where I defended the idea of Christians defending President Trump, I noted how it was sinful to lie and to bear false witness against someone. In this case, I am certainly not surprised that South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg would lie and bear false witness against the Founding Fathers, but I still feel the need to clean the stain that he is trying to leave behind.
Speaking to children in a school (making sure they grow up to hate America just as much as he does), Mayor Pete tried to convince the children present that the Founding Fathers were silly, ignorant troglodytes who did not understand right from wrong and did not understand that slavery was not good.
“Similarly, the amendment process; they were wise enough to realize that they didn’t have all the answers, and that some things would change. A good example of this is something like slavery, or civil rights. It’s an embarrassing thing to admit, but the people who wrote the Constitution did not understand that slavery was a bad thing. They did not respect civil rights, and yet they created the framework so that as the generations came to understand that that was important, they could write that into the Constitution too and ensure true equal protection for all,” said the fake Christian.
While it sounds like he is praising the Founding Fathers in some places, he is doing nothing but passive aggressively insulting them when he is completely wrong about this.
Of course, the fake Christian Democrat was blasted online for his words, with people like historian and columnist Jay Cost saying: “The ignorance is astounding” on Twitter.
To further emphasize just how ignorant and wrong Mayor Pete is, he elaborated that the guy who wrote the Constitution, Governor Morris, “gave an amazing series of speeches in Philadelphia denouncing slavery.”
James Madison, on August 8th, 1787, made notes of the debates regarding the text of the Constitution featuring Morris and wrote:
“Mr. Govr. MORRIS moved to insert ‘free’ before the word inhabitants. Much he said would depend on this point. He never would concur in upholding domestic slavery. It was a nefarious institution. It was the curse of heaven on the States where it prevailed. Compare the free regions of the Middle States, where a rich & noble cultivation marks the prosperity & happiness of the people with the misery & poverty which overspread the barren wastes of Va. Maryd. & the other States having slaves. Travel thro’ ye. whole Continent & you behold the prospect continually varying with the appearance & disappearance of slavery. The moment you leave ye. E. Sts. & enter N. York, the effects of the institution become visible, passing thro’ the Jerseys & entering Pa. every criterion of superior improvement witnesses the change. Proceed south widely & every step you take thro’ ye great region of slaves presents a desert increasing, with ye. increasing proportion of these wretched beings.”
“Upon what principle is it that the slaves shall be computed in the representation? Are they men? Then make them Citizens and let them vote. Are they property? Why then is no other property included? The Houses in this city [Philada.] are worth more than all the wretched slaves which cover the rice swamps of South Carolina. The admission of slaves into the Representation when fairly explained comes to this: that the inhabitant of Georgia and S. C. who goes to the Coast of Africa, and in defiance of the most sacred laws of humanity tears away his fellow creatures from their dearest connections & damns them to the most cruel bondages, shall have more votes in a Govt. instituted for protection of the rights of mankind, than the Citizens of Pa. or N. Jersey who views with a laudable horror, so nefarious a practice.”
Suffice to say, as Madison’s own words can be considered, many of the Founding Fathers were vehemently AGAINST slavery and found it to be an abhorrent practice. When Madison writes: “Are they property? Why then is no other property included?”, he is basically talking about the discussion and debates they had been having over this matter. No one was debating whether someone’s house was property, or whether someone’s dog as property or whether someone’s furniture was property. They were debating whether slaves, fellow human beings who very much look like human beings, even if they have a different skin color, are property or are to be considered their fellow Man, and it’s quite clear where James Madison stood on this.
And Madison is far from the only Founding Father to hold slavery with such disdain. Thomas Jefferson, the Founding Father most often demonized for having owned slaves at one point, had originally written this in a draft of the Declaration of Independence but eventually took it out: “He [King George] has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred right of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither.”
Jefferson is charging King George III with waging war against HUMAN nature and violating the sacred right to life and liberty of PERSONS in Africa that he sent to the colonies to turn into the slaves of the highest bidders. If he didn’t consider African slaves to be people and humans, he wouldn’t have written this in his draft and the only reason I could consider for having taken it out is because some people were debating in favor of holding slaves and did not want that part in the Declaration of Independence, as it would’ve delegitimized their slave-owning practices.
In a letter to Lawrence Lewis on August 4th, 1797, our nation’s first president, George Washington, wrote: “I wish from my soul that the legislature of this State could see a policy of a gradual Abolition of Slavery.”
Washington, by the way, was another target of the hateful Left as being demonized for having owned slaves at one point, but he clearly loathed the practice.
Our nation’s second president, John Adams, wrote on June 8th, 1819: “Every measure of prudence, therefore, ought to be assumed for the eventual total extirpation of slavery from the United States… I have, throughout my whole life, held the practice of slavery in… abhorrence.”
Our Founding Fathers minced no words about how they felt about slavery. Now, Leftists could say “but if they hated it so much and thought it so evil, why didn’t they do something about it?” and I’ve already explained elsewhere why this is: slavery, as a practice, was dying at the time, not to mention that they did do things to end slavery.
From December 2nd, 1793 to March 3rd, 1795, the 3rd Congress debated and eventually passed a bill to suppress slave trade and prohibiting the U.S. from trading with foreign countries. What’s more, multiple sessions in the Senate and House held debates regarding the abolition of slavery for a very long time.
For a time, the U.S. prohibited slave trading ships from entering and limited the number of slaves. Again, the practice was dying and Congress, at least the Senators and Representatives who wanted to end the practice and had the power to do so, worked towards killing the practice faster. The only thing that made slavery worse and caused a resurgence of it, particularly in the South, was the invention of the cotton gin, which made picking cotton (which used to be extremely difficult and hardly worth the hassle) a far easier thing to accomplish. This drove up demand for slaves to pick cotton and as a result, slave trade continued and, as I said, got worse until the Emancipation Proclamation.
The notion that our Founding Fathers “did not understand that slavery was a bad thing” is completely erroneous and ignorant. The Founding Fathers, particularly the notable ones, ABHORRED the practice of slavery and hoped that it would be put to an end one day, having done what they could with the time that they had. And the work they did in limiting and prohibiting slave trade would’ve been quintessential to ending slavery altogether in the country if the cotton gin had not driven up demand for slavery and caused Congress to amend and lift those prohibitions.
The Founding Fathers made their views on slavery perfectly clear and it is wrong for anyone, let alone a Presidential candidate, to smear them as these ignorant Neanderthals who hardly knew right from wrong and stumbled their way to allowing for future generations to change things for the better. Not that I expect any different from Pete Buttigieg or anyone else on the Democrat Party. Their hatred for this country, particularly for its founding principles, is no secret. Failed Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke also tried to smear the country’s very founding as racist and bigoted. No Democrat running for president, and no Democrat holding any sort of electoral seat, can be said that they hold any love for this country.
And with ignorant statements such as the ones by Buttigieg, it’s becoming increasingly clear to the American people.

People have the right to defend themselves. This much is factual and you would think there’d be no one who would disagree, but the Left, in all their inglorious stupidity (or evil), disagrees with this notion, choosing to live in a world of fairy tales where violence doesn’t occur and people are naturally good. That simply is not the reality we live in and as a result, people have to be able to defend themselves if and when the unimaginable does happen.
I say this largely because of the rather bloody and strange weekend we recently had. Let’s begin with the earliest story of the weekend, which is of an anti-Semitic attack by two women in New York (which ended an entire week of roughly 10 anti-Semitic attacks in the Democrat-owned state).
While this one did not really result in anyone’s death (thankfully), it showcases the need for people to be able to defend themselves regardless. A woman, Tiffany Harris, was arrested after having assaulted three Jewish women and shouting anti-Semitic slurs at them. She was then released by the NYPD without bail and was arrested once again in another assault against another woman (though it’s unclear if the woman was Jewish too).
Again, this one is not outright deadly, but it easily could be, particularly since the hateful bigot will not face any charges or punishment for her actions due to Bill de Blasio’s irrational “bail reform” laws that allow for the bad guys to be released extremely easily.
It’s not even as if the hateful bigot denied that she did it. She flat out admitted to the police upon her arrest: “Yes, I slapped them. I cursed them out. I said ‘F-U, Jews.’” She ADMITTED to the assault but the police could do nothing about it because of the idiot mayor’s pandering to criminals for votes.
While this case has a little less to do with the kind of self-defense I will be talking about in this article, it does relate to the sort of idiocy (at best) that fills the Democrat Party’s minds when it comes to legislation. Criminals and anti-Semites get to run amok in New York and de Blasio even has the nerve to try and blame this on Trump and on Rudy Giuliani (these things didn’t happen, particularly to this extent, when Giuliani was mayor of NYC). He’s a fraud and a danger to the people of New York City.
Regardless, let’s move on to another anti-Semitic attack that happened in New York, where a machete-wielding man attacked Jews in a Hanukkah party, wounding five people. The man was arrested and according to Rockland County Assistant DA Michael Dugandzic, he “was found with blood all over his clothing and a strong smell of bleach in the car, like he was trying to destroy evidence.”
Anti-Semitism has been on the rise in Democrat-owned New York, while the Democrats have tried to place the blame squarely on the shoulders of the President and his “inflammatory rhetoric” despite the fact that it’s the Democrats in the House who failed to pass a resolution condemning anti-Semitism because their openly anti-Semitic party members didn’t want to be singled out and Pelosi caved to their demands, switching from condemning anti-Semitism to condemning all hatred in general.
Again, the Democrat Party owns New York, where the bulk of this anti-Semitism is occurring. I don’t care whether or not you think Trump’s rhetoric is “inflammatory” (it isn’t), one cannot realistically blame Trump for anti-Semitic attacks when he has been the most pro-Jewish president in recent history. And for all the “anti-Muslim hatred” that he is accused of pushing, how come we don’t hear of stories where Muslims are targeted in anti-Muslim attacks? Not that I would want them to be, but the charge of Islamophobia is placed on Trump far more often than anti-Semitism, but we never hear of Muslims being targeted like this.
For all the charges of racism against Trump, we never really hear of anti-black attacks (unless they are made up stories like Jussie Smollett) or anti-Hispanic attacks as a result of Trump’s rhetoric. Granted, we also don’t often hear of anti-Semitic attacks largely because the media doesn’t care about them unless they are either fairly major (like the ones discussed) or can be blamed on Trump in some form or fashion. Again, the stories I talked about mark two of TEN anti-Semitic attacks in New York this week alone, but we have hardly heard anything about those other eight.
Now, moving on to the final act of violence that occurred this weekend, and what really drives the point of this article, let’s talk about the White Settlement church shooting that happened on Sunday.
During a Sunday service, a bad guy with a gun (who was a felon and wasn't legally allowed to own guns but still had them, further destroying any argument for gun control that clearly doesn't work) went into the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, and opened fire on churchgoers. According to The Dallas Morning News, “one person died at the scene of the shooting, one person died en route to a hospital, and another person was transported to a hospital in critical condition. The shooter is believed to be one of those three people, said Fort Worth Fire Department spokesman Mike Drivdahl.”
The shooter was neutralized by an armed churchgoer, preventing the shooter from taking more lives than he did. This is thanks in large part to a bill signed into law by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott last September that allowed for lawful gun owners to carry guns in places of worship. This law, by the way, was maligned by Democrats like Joe Biden, who said it was “totally irrational” to do that. It, in fact, is completely rational, as bad guys with guns will shoot wherever there are people to kill and will target people without guns (or people who worship God, if they hate Jews or Christians) no matter what the law says. This kind of law gives law-abiding citizens the ability to fight back should such a horrendous situation ever occur.
It’s for these kinds of situations that people have the right to defend themselves. Now, Leftists will still argue “if the bad guy with a gun didn’t have a gun in the first place, this wouldn’t have happened”. True, but there are more guns in the U.S. than there are people. There will always be bad guys with guns, so no legislation in the world will get guns out of the hands of bad guys.
New Zealand implemented a “mandatory” gun buy-back program and it’s a complete and utter failure. California, the state with some of the strictest gun control laws, had EIGHT mass slayings in 2019, according to The Associated Press. The AP reports that a total of 41 mass slayings occurred nationally in 2019 (The AP defines mass slayings as killings were four or more people are killed excluding the perpetrator). 33 out of those 41 mass slayings were firearm-related and, again, California was responsible for eight of them, the most out of any other state.
Despite the heavy gun control laws in places like California, Chicago, New York, Detroit, etc., we see some of the most bloodshed in such places. Now, Leftists could argue that if guns simply were not there, these things wouldn’t happen, which is altogether wrong. No shootings would happen, but killings would still occur. Just look at London and other places in the U.K. being ravaged by stabbing attacks day in and day out to find my words ring true.
Bad people will look for ways to hurt and kill others. Restricting good people from being able to defend themselves only worsens the problem and makes easy targets out of the innocent.
Had Texas not had the law that allowed for gun owners to carry inside places of worship, far more people would’ve died. The perpetrator had a gun and little was going to keep him from committing an act of violence. The little that keeps him from doing it is a good guy with a gun ready and able to fight back.
And returning to the anti-Semitic attacks in New York, do you think they would be anywhere near as bad if people were allowed to arm themselves? Recently, I had seen a picture on Twitter of Orthodox Jews openly carrying rifles in Rockland County (as seen above), the same county where the machete attack occurred. They have to protect themselves and have every right to do so, but New York laws restrict them. Of course, the particular Jews that were in those pictures do not have to worry too much about the existing gun control laws, but there’s no doubt that de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo want stricter laws which will only hurt the citizens of New York looking to arm themselves to protect themselves.
While the 2nd Amendment exists to protect people from a tyrannical government, a secondary benefit is that it allows for people to protect themselves against anyone who might wish to cause them harm, whether or not they are from the government.
The Framers of the Constitution knew perfectly well what tyranny looked like and wanted to prevent that from happening in the new country they had created. The 2nd Amendment was written and passed for the very purpose of keeping the government in check by We the People. The only reason this country isn’t far more authoritarian than it is is because of the 2nd Amendment, which is why it’s so heavily targeted by the authoritarian Left.
But the right to self-defense has existed long before guns were even a thing, as Jesus Christ Himself has advised His followers to arm themselves with a sword, even if it means selling the very clothes on your back.
We the People have the right to defend ourselves because the government cannot do a better job of it than we can.

This Is Why No One Likes The Media: MSM Tries To Defame Cadets Playing “Circle Game” As White Supremacists
According to a recent Gallup poll, only 41% of Americans trust the Mass Media (newspapers, TV, radio, etc.). And over the weekend, a prime example of exactly why came up.
On Saturday, the football teams for America’s Army and Navy met to play one another in an intense rivalry game; a game that was notably visited by our Commander-in-Chief President Donald J. Trump, who was met with loud cheers. But one of the biggest takeaways from the game, at least in the mind of the media, is the actions of cadets, who, upon realizing that a TV camera was pointing his way, made the “Circle Game” gesture on the shoulder of another cadet, who briefly looked at it and then looked away, sort of awkwardly grinning afterwards because he knew exactly what that gesture was and why he needed to avert his gaze (other cadets also made the gesture at different times).
However, many Leftist activists and the fake news media are seemingly completely unaware of the game (or act like it, at least) and thought the gesture was not the “Circle Game” gesture, but rather, a White Power or White Supremacy gesture.
Mike Brehm from USA Today Sports reported: “Questions erupted during the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia when students appeared to make the White Power hand symbol during a pregame broadcast. Spokespersons from the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy told USA Today Sports they have been made aware of the issue – which blossomed on social media as the game wore on – and the schools are looking into it.”
Note all the b.s. that we find in that paragraph alone.
First of all, he calls it “the White Power hand symbol” as though it’s a hand sign that pretty much everyone understands is supposed to mean that when the VAST majority of people are grounded in reality and know that that’s not a “white power” hand symbol. But he reports it as though that’s exactly what it is and everyone interprets it to mean what he says it is. It’s nothing but fake news and it’s pretty clear how b.s. this is.
Secondly, they actually got the U.S. Army and Navy academies to investigate this as though it’s an “issue”, as Brehm reports. It’s not an issue worth of an investigation (that will likely cost taxpayer dollars). It’s not an issue at all! It’s just an academy cadet playing the “Circle Game” from the early 2000s.
For those of you who might not know, the Circle Game is a game where you make a hand gesture like the one the cadet made but you have to make that gesture below the waist. If you catch someone looking at the gesture below the waist, you get to hit them on the shoulder as hard as you want. It’s a dumb game people (mostly boys) would play back in the early 2000s.
There was this show I used to watch and really like from the early-to-mid 2000s called “Malcolm in the Middle.” Some of you may have watched it as well. In one of the episodes, Malcolm’s family is invited to dinner to a restaurant by Stevie’s family, a friend of Malcolm’s. One of the subplots of the episode revolves around Malcolm’s older and bully brother Reese playing the circle game, particularly with Stevie, who viewers of the show know is pretty physically weak and fragile.
In fact, if you look up this particular episode (titled “Dinner Out”) and you go to the Fandom Wiki page for the episode, you find the following picture:
Would you say that Malcolm, who is supposed to be one of the most grounded (pun not intended) characters in the show, is making a “white power” hand gesture? Would you say that he is indicating to the audience that he is secretly a “white supremacist”? OF COURSE NOT! IT’S JUST A DUMB GAME FROM THE EARLY 2000s!
No one who is in their right mind, certainly no one who is even remotely truthful, would consider that hand gesture to be a racist one.
And yet, you have dishonest idiots like Mike Brehm getting PAID to write idiotic reports like this as though it’s a national tragedy and an embarrassment. Of course, it doesn’t end there either.
Far-Left activists piled on, calling the gesture (and, in turn, the cadets) racist and white supremacist and trying to tie that in with the fact that President Trump was there.
One Leftist activist tweeted: “As an American, as a Navy Dad, as a decent human being… you hate to see racist West Point cadets emboldened by the presence of the Racist-in-Chief at an Army-Navy Game to throw up the “White Power” sign on national TV. Disgusting.”
Not surprising at all that this guy hates Trump and calls him a racist. The guy is an idiot himself. He parrots the idea that the CIRCLE GAME is a “white power” sign. It’s utterly ridiculous and completely dishonest, but hey, I don’t expect anything less from the Left.
Thankfully, PLENTY of people pushed back against the insane narrative and protected the innocent cadet.
Former senior White House adviser Cliff Sims wrote: “Here we go again. This time it’s [Mike Brehm] of [USA Today Sports] trying to ruin the lives of cadets for playing the circle game, because in some alternate reality they just MUST be white supremacists. At some point someone’s gotta bring a defamation case against these lunatics.”
Sports analyst Clay Travis also pushed back against the insanity: “Good lord. They were playing the circle game. America has gone insane.”
Not America, Clay, just the Left who will find any and all excuses to be offended. They live in a perpetual state of anger and scorn and hatred, so they must push it on other people and demand they be as angry, scornful and hateful as they are.
Curt Schilling wrote: “This is just idiotic. It’s a bunch of guys playing the circle game about 10 years after their friends all stopped. But ya, let’s make it out to be racist, since everything else you see and hear is as well.”
Attorney Kurt Schlichter issued a warning to those who would defame these cadets: “This is a warning to the media… If you Covington the cadets, you will be held accountable in court in front of a jury and not in your comfortable, sympathetic blue enclave venue. Do not participate in the defamation of American heroes.” He then went on to tag a few lawyers who would be able to help the cadet if he wishes to legally fight back against the libel.
Others also made the point that I myself am about to make: even if it wasn’t clearly the circle game, making the “ok” hand symbol is also not racist.
Back in January of this year, Kathy Griffin tried to libel Covington basketball players for making what she considered “racist” hand gestures… they were the symbol for celebrating a successful three-pointer by one of their teammates.
But even if you also took out the context of basketball, that symbol is NOT a symbol of white supremacy and it’s utterly ridiculous to suggest so.
Look at the following people making the “ok” hand gesture:
What person in his right mind would suggest that OBAMA, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bill de Blasio are throwing up “white power” signs? There’s no denying these people are racist, but one would not claim that they are white supremacists because of the gesture alone.
It is utterly ridiculous to suggest such a thing, and yet, these Left-wing reporters and activists, in all their shared idiocy, attempt to libel cadets as being racists and throwing up secretive “white power” hand gestures.
It’s for crap like this, and for crap like the Covington case that Schlichter referenced, that so few people trust or like the media. They are an utter disgrace to the very profession they claim to be a part of. They are not journalists; they are propagandists using the power of the free press. They can claim whatever they want with zero repercussions, regardless of the sort of damage it causes to a person’s character or life.
The media tried to ruin a Christian, Trump-supporting HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT’S LIFE AND FUTURE and they just tried something fairly similar with a cadet of a military academy.
THAT is what is disgusting about it and I sincerely hope that the cadet and whoever else gets targeted for this nonsense sues the heck out of these “news” people and organizations that publish such damaging b.s. Mike Brehn needs to be held accountable for such reckless reporting and libel, as well as all other “journalists” that do this.
