Once a delusion sets into a person’s mind, it can be really tough to dislodge. If you’re convinced that Hillary Clinton is running a child sex slavery ring out of a pizza joint in D.C., or that Obama was born in Kenya,* or that the murdered children at Sandy Hook were “crisis actors,” every piece of evidence you find is going to convince you of that. So will every piece of evidence against it, or a complete lack of evidence altogether. When you just know you’re right, you’ll figure out some rationalization to convince yourself that it’s true, and that everybody telling you otherwise is part of the cover-up.
Unless, of course, you’re a reporter journalist.
On last night’s episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Toronto Sun columnist Sue-Ann Levy joined me to discuss the latest on her photographer colleague who was attacked by Antifa during a Toronto “anti-hate rally.”
The fight over Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is a microcosm for the insanity taking over American politics. The future felon who destroyed the landmark last week shone a bright light on Hollywood hypocrisy and double standards. The West Hollywood City Council wants the star gone. It sounds ominous until you realize the star is not even in the city’s jurisdiction. Last summer, West Hollywood also called for the impeachment of President Trump. It is virtue signaling writ large, and further moves the needle in middle America the other way.
You are just hideously white voids of mayonnaise and vanilla.
The New York Times announced this week that it had hired Sarah Jeong as a new member of its editorial board. As is the unfortunate custom in the modern media age, this hiring led to a dissection of Jeong’s Twitter history in the hopes of finding something offensive. It did not take long for offensive things to be discovered. But in this case the offensive content came with a twist unique to the age of privilege. What the tweets described — and there were many — was how horrible white people are.
If you heard a liberal talk about the United States you might find yourself wondering what country they’re talking about, sometimes what planet. Rather than seeing this country as a beacon of hope and freedom for the world – a “shining city on a hill,” so to speak – they see only a horribly racist country built on the concept of beating down anyone who is not white. But, as is often the case with the liberal worldview, it is something else entirely.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders used her nationally televised press briefing Thursday to say some very important things about the round-the-clock unrelenting criticism of the president and his team coming from the Trump-hating mainstream media.
Here’s a bit of heresy: ban nothing. Did that raise the hair on your back? Did it strike a chord? Did you find yourself thinking “but Thales, that can’t possibly work!”
Liberal-leftism is a mental illness. To find out whether you are afflicted with this deadly and largely incurable condition here is a simple test based on recent events.
The Washington Examiner reports: “Not only is the president looking to take away [Former CIA Director John] Brennan’s security clearance, he’s also looking into the clearances of Comey, Clapper, Hayden, Rice and McCabe,” press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.”
What about Hillary and Obama?
Candace Owens, communications director for Turning Point USA, discussed her new friendship with rapper Kanye West and a recent conversation with President Donald Trump, during an interview with The Daily Signal’s Ginny Montalbano.
The Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia kicked them out because she was employed in the Trump administration and has been a target of the now totally unleashed fury of the mob that has been driven over the edge over a lost election and egged on by the media.
“The American people need to understand that you’re being fed a falsehood here by many people in the media and the Hill, and it’s just really sad where we’re at as a country on this issue,” Homan stated.
“The president’s hands are tied. There is legislation, there is court decisions on this that limit how long we can detain children,” he went on. “Congress really can fix it. Congress is placing the blame. I’ve been doing this 34 years. Immigration has been a problem 34 years.”
“They are simply enforcing laws enacted by Congress,” Homan said. “I wish I heard this much outrage about separation of families — I wish we met with mothers and fathers whose children were killed by illegal immigrants. Jewish citizen children that were killed and separated from their family forever.”
Your average mass media pundit regularly decries the fact Americans no longer have trust in the country’s institutions, yet simultaneously refuse to take any sort of responsibility for the situation. Government bureaucrats and other assorted supporters of our decrepit status quo tend to do the same thing. As is typically the case, I’ll take the other side.
