If you’re even barely intelligent and mildly educated, you’d realize that ideas such as “guilt by association” and “two wrongs make a right” are commonly accepted logical fallacies. One needn’t be particularly bright, nor even fully pubescent, to grasp this.
But for growing swaths of the pro-globalist—and therefore the unwittingly pro-corporate, pro-capitalist, and pro-banker—radical left, even “two wrongs make a right” is no longer sufficient. For them, it’s now “Commit the first wrong based on the theoretical possibility that a second wrong will be committed if you don’t hit first.”
Sean Hannity is the second most wanted man on the takedown list of the anti-Trump Resistance. We know this because the New York Times – in earlier times the “newspaper of record” and still the most influential and Deep State agenda-setting newspaper in the U.S. – yesterday posted an 8,000 word cover story by Matthew Shaer that will be published in its next Sunday magazine, along with a striking cover photo of the subject. The subject? Sean Hannity. The cover title? “How Far Will Sean Hannity Go?” (in his defense of President Trump). The photo is a comical pose struck by Hannity taken during a half hour photo shoot during which, Hannity said, hundreds of pictures were snapped. The one that was selected by the Times editors, according to Hannity, is the worst one, showing him looking angry and scary, if not demonic. The Drudge Report described its link to it on Tuesday as “NYT goes for anger.”
Whereas the essence of democracy, as Tocqueville so brilliantly notes, is compromise and conciliation, the essence of totalitarianism is that truth is whatever the movement says it is. Different ideas are to be quashed.
John Wayne was an overcompensating pawn — if you take The Atlantic’s word for it.
Reviewing Nancy Shoenberger’s book, “Wayne and Ford: The Films, the Friendship, and the Forging of an American Hero” in this month’s issue of the once-great magazine, Stephen Metcalf soliloquizes on the two icons of early American cinema: director John Ford and his protegé: The Duke himself.
Ford was a manic, closeted homosexual, Metcalf implies. Wayne, a “hollow” shell of a propaganda stunt: a bumbling buffoon used naively to propel the myth of American masculinity on the big screen.
Audiences love to be entertained. What they’re not too crazy about is being preached to about politics, especially by someone who opposes their own political beliefs. One musician who doesn’t care about those people is David Crosby. The 76-year-old founder of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash took time during his November 13th Arlington, MA show to proselytize according to his left-wing sensibilities.
On Monday afternoon, some journalists provided another small nail in the coffin of the media’s credibility when they lost their collective minds on Twitter over White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders asking reporters to share what they’re most thankful for this Thanksgiving week.
The world’s first leftist anti-Trump hotel is here. You won’t be surprised to learn that it’s opening in Washington D.C. (with additional locations in Seattle, Hong Kong and San Francisco.)
And you’ll be even less surprised to hear that it’s a luxury hotel with organic mattresses and crystal healing. Instead of a Bible, there’ll be a United Nations pamphlet. The minibar will have an activist toolkit. Staffers will be hired for their commitment to leftist social justice. (That’s technically discrimination, but it’s not as if leftists live by the laws that they impose on the rest of us.)
Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.
A secretive three-day conference where big money liberal donors are plotting the next steps of the “resistance” will be headlined by Friday speeches by billionaire George Soros and Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, according to internal documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey decided to ban alt-right personality Baked Alaska on Wednesday and removed “verification” check marks from Richard Spencer, James Allsup, Jason Kessler, “Wife With A Purpose,” Tommy Robinson, Laura Loomer and other right-wing personalities, ostensibly for “promoting hate.”
“We believe that President Trump has violated the Constitution, and we’ve introduced five articles of impeachment,” Cohen said at a press conference.
It didn’t take long for Papa John’s to face a ferocious pushback from leftist activist groups as well as the NFL’s media lackeys. Compounding matters, the company freaked out over a Newsweek accusation that it was the pizza of white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
Have you ever heard of David Kenneth Smith? Chances are you haven’t — he’s a rabid anti-Trumper, thus his story didn’t fit any convenient narrative. News of his arrest was treated as a local story with no national significance. However, if this freak had been a right-wing activist, he’d have been a front-page story in every paper in the country.
The left is constantly accusing conservatives of being fascist, racist, and sexist, and yet they are the ones who want groups of people rounded up and exterminated. I found this liberal lunatic who is advocating for all men and white people to be wiped from the face of the Earth to give women of color a better chance at success. Just to be clear, wanting to kill all the white people is racist and wanting to kill all of the men is sexist. Also, for the benefit of clarity, killing everyone of a particular race is genocide and something practiced by fascists.
At one end of the cultural spectrum, Antifa fascists and campus radicals preposterously argue that conservative speech is violence, while cultural grandees shoehorn a Trump assassination into Shakespeare in the Park at the other. In between, Kathy Griffin retracts her apology for planting the image of a beheaded Trump in the minds of hordes of crazy people who have been told Trump is the same as Hitler. The more violence is praised, and the more times the at-risk population is exposed to images of violence against Trump, the more people will be encouraged to act out. We have largely closed our mental hospitals and have a lot of unstable people in a nation of 330 million.
