When President Trump calls the press the “enemy of the American people” it’s hard to defend. But that doesn’t mean he’s not right. (more…)
Nikki Haley Breaks the Heart of America
Nikki Haley rocked the Republican community this morning when news broke that President Trump accepted her resignation. Haley, known for being bold and unapologetic, has frequently called out other countries for hypocrisy or injustices. Unfortunately for us, Haley will be leaving her post just short of two years as U.N Ambassador.
Hopefully, Nikki Haley will find herself in an even better position within the Trump administration. Her career has been nothing short of inspiring for women all around the country, and we can only hope she continues to serve our country in some capacity.
In the meantime, Trump now has an opportunity to do what he does best; Troll the Left.
The Next U.N Ambassador (We Hope)
May we present you with the next (we hope) U.N Ambassador, Richard Grenell.
Grenell is currently serving as the Ambassador to Germany. His nomination came from the one and only Donald J. Trump.
“Well of course he did,” says the Left, “He’s a white guy.”
Yes, he is, but he is also the only openly gay Republican serving as an ambassador. By nominating Rick Grenell to be the US Ambassador to the U.N, President Trump would be reaching epic levels of trolliness.
And that’s something we can get behind all day.
So Much Trolling
Not only will the Left’s wheel of oppression fall off its gears, but now homophobic nations will be face to face with someone they usually throw off a building.
It’s no secret that the Left wants to pain our POTUS as a homophobic, racist, xenophobic bigot. The problem is, he keeps destroying that narrative almost weekly.
It’s about time we put the homophobic claims to rest as well. Choosing Rick Grenell would help nicely.
Next, despite the love that the Left has for Muslim countries, these are places that still openly target their gay citizens. Just last month, Indonesia “spared” two lesbians of 100 lashes and opted for “rehabilitation” instead.
Imagine being one of these countries who punish homosexuals and considers such a person guilty of a crime. Now they are face to face with an individual who, in their country, would be stoned to death. Ouch.
Not only that but many of the more progressive countries like the UK and Germany will undoubtedly see this as a step in the right direction for the US. However, these are also countries that have opened their borders and tolerate the invasion of Muslim refugees into their communities.
Everyone grab their popcorn. We would see a trinity of Presidential trolling unfold on a global stage.
After a heated debate, it looks as though Brett Kavanaugh will be confirmed to the Supreme Court this weekend with a vote of 51-49 or possibly 50-50. If the latter is the case, Vice President Mike Pence will cast the tie-breaking vote. Should that come to pass, it’s not exactly a secret what the VP will decide.
After an intense, heated, vitriolic ordeal; the end is near. For half the country, the impending appointment will come as a sigh of relief. For the other half, however…. well, it remains to be seen how they’ll react once the vote becomes final.
All that leads to the question of what happens next? Where do we go from here? On that note, a few thoughts.
Your Life Is Not Over
The Supreme Court is not supposed to have this much power or control over our lives. Even if it seems as though it does, it really doesn’t even in modern times. The primary function of the Supreme Court is not to legislate. It is to serve as a Constitutional check on power for the Legislative (and Executive) branch of government.
Ask 10 random people in your life what their favorite Supreme Court decision was and Roe V. Wade doesn’t count. Odds are, you’ll get 10 blank stares. The reason? The average person is barely aware that the United States has a Supreme Court, let alone who’s on it, what cases it hears, and what decisions are made.
Beyond that, try asking 10 people which Supreme Court decision has had the most positive or negative impact on their life. Again, Roe V. Wade doesn’t count. 10 more blank stares. Mind you, it’s not that Roe V. Wade isn’t/wasn’t a landmark Supreme Court case. It was. However, beyond that extremely well-known case, most people (myself included) simply don’t pay attention.
The Supreme Court does have power. Their decisions do impact our lives. However, for the average American on an average day? The Supreme Court isn’t really on their mind.
Kavanaugh Isn’t Who You Think He Is
There are a few things that Brett Kavanaugh is; and a few things he isn’t. There are also a few things he might be. If you’re inclined to believe he’s a crazy, alcoholic, rapist: well, probably nothing will convince you otherwise. A well-respected judge? Prior to his nomination, yes. An Originalist? Yes. Right-wing? Sure. Is he on the level of a Clarence Thomas? Yes.
There’s no way of getting around the fact that Brett Kavanaugh is a conservative Republican, picked by conservative Republicans, and vetted by conservative Republican groups. That said, he’s not the Nazi extremist many are making him out to be.
Does he favor overturning Roe V. Wade? Probably yes, as most conservatives do. Would he? Probably not. The Supreme Court does not get to decide to revisit an old issue just for the hell of it. A law of some kind would have to be created, then challenged, then work its way up the system to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court would have to decide to hear the case. Then, they would have to decide to rule on it one way or another.
That’s a lot of “ifs.” It isn’t outside the realm of possibility, but it certainly isn’t imminent. Nor is it clear that the likes of Kavanaugh and Gorsuch would vote in such a way. The thing about Originalists is that they’re very “letter of the law” when it comes to their decisions. This means that the law has to be soundly written and applied, leaving little room for interpretation.
This stands in stark contrast with activist judges (on both sides) who seek to cram square pegs into round holes; making a law fit no matter what.
In any case, should an “overturn” of Roe V. Wade occur, the issue would simply go to the states where they can decide whether or not to keep it. In my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with this approach. Let the governors and state legislators decide what is best for their direct constituents; to whom they are most accountable.
The End Is Nowhere Near
There may yet come a challenge to Roe V. Wade in the future. However, the notion that Kavanaugh will spend his first day on the court taking a red pen to the decision is factually incorrect and absurd on its face. It’s as absurd as the notion that this “right-wing takeover” of the Supreme Court will turn women into property, enslave all minorities, and disband democracy.
The frenzy that those on the left have worked themselves into is as dishonest as it is counterproductive to their goals. Have you noticed how the “Trump is a Nazi” rhetoric has died down? Part of that is organic and part of that is planned.
When most of the President’s family is Jewish, (or married into Judaism), is BFF’s with Israel, deports an actual Nazi, and moves the US embassy to Jerusalem; it’s kind of hard to keep up that sort of rhetoric. The “Literally Hitler” crowd has quieted and it’s partially because there’s no traction to be had with such an argument.
Of course, the extreme left still thinks Donald Trump is literally Hitler. The same way the extreme right thinks Obama is literally a foreign-born terrorist. Both are silly and counterproductive. All it takes is for Donald Trump to, you know, not be Hitler; or for Obama to, you know, not do terroristy things.
A Low Bar
When the bar is set that low, the enthusiasm for any conspiracy theory fizzles. Most importantly, moderates who may otherwise share your views tend to drop off as well. They say “okay, well, this guy isn’t really Hitler…. so what the hell are they talking about?”
I know, because I’ve gone down the “Hillary Clinton is a satanic priestess who eats babies” internet rabbit hole in the past. There’s not a lot of substance to be had there. Sometimes these things gain traction briefly. When they don’t add up, you’re left looking ridiculous.
The bar is being similarly set low for Kavanaugh. All he truly needs to do to quiet the extreme rhetoric is, you know, not declare that all women are baby factories who are owned by men. He’ll no doubt receive more attention than most Supreme Court justices (save for the Democrat’s love affair with the Notorious RBG), but that too will fizzle. He’ll vote on the same ho-hum issues that most Americans don’t care about and we’ll soon forget all about how he was going to declare that all women were now property with no legal rights.
The good thing is that even if Kavanaugh wanted to decree such a thing (I’m fairly certain he does not), it would mean nothing and he’d be decreeing it to no one. Why? Because the Supreme Court doesn’t decree anything. It cannot, and does not go off on a legislative tangent just for the hell of it.
If the country really believed we’d elected “literally Hitler” in 2016, there would be far more resistance to him than the so-called #resistance. Democrats in Congress talk a good game but mostly give Trump what he wants. They vote for his budgets, his spending, and to expand the powers of the Executive branch with regularity.
The #resistance exists on Twitter. It doesn’t really exist in Congress.
So, What Happens Next?
What happens next is anyone’s guess. How will the extreme left react this weekend? We’ll see. I have a feeling it will be neither pretty nor quiet. The behavior of Senate Democrats as well as leftist protesters during this ordeal has been nothing short of laughable at best, and reprehensible at worst.
Apparently sending Susan Collins coat hangers in the mail as a cruel nod to abortion didn’t have the desired effect. Or doxxing Senate Republicans. Or screaming about white male patriarchy because that always works. Yes, truly this is the work of sane, well-balanced people and not, you know, crazy.
Mind you, I don’t begrudge anyone their right to protest. I just wish their protests were more grounded in reality as opposed to regurgitating hypocritical pseudoscience pop culture psychobabble buzzwords. I mean, it’s just sort of silly, that’s all.
But it is amusing and the memes are good so, you know, silver lining there.
The right to protest is enshrined in the Constitution. So, whatever they do; Leftist activists should take solace in the fact that having Originalists on the court means that right isn’t going anywhere.
I just hope the irony isn’t lost on them.
Democrats Help #WalkAway…again
Congressional Democrats helped to form an unlikely alliance last week. Their showing at the Supreme Court nomination helped wake up quite a few more Americans who joined the #WalkaAway Campaign.
In yet another polarizing issue, the accusation of Christine Blasey Ford set the country on fire. Despite the complete lack of evidence, Democrats threw their support behind Ford. The #MeToo shot to the top of “trending” on Twitter with a new one for good measure; #IBelieveHer.
Meanwhile, Republicans and Conservatives approached the issue with skepticism and doubt. “Why,” you ask? Well, let’s look at the facts.
The Evidence (Or Lack Of)
— Erika Wilson (@ErikaWilsonArt) September 29, 2018
- She doesn’t remember when or where the party was.
- She doesn’t remember how she got there or how she got home.
- Her recollection of the account and who was there had changed multiple times.
- Everyone who “was at the party” according to Ford has denied they were either there or that it ever happened.
- She claims she fled the party after the attack and ran home (but wait, I thought she didn’t remember how she got home). However, she also said she called her best friend from her cell phone after the attack. The year was 1982. The first cell phone wasn’t available for purchase until 1984.
- She claims she heard people talking about her/the attack at the party. (But she said she fled after the assault, so how is this possible)
There are also conflicting stories in regards to how she remembered the offense later in counseling.
According to Ford, she was remodeling her home and wanted a second door installed so she “could escape” and was claustrophobic after the alleged attack. This remodel was for a rental property, and all of this occurred in 2008, not 2012 as she claimed.
Dr. Ford deleted ALL her social media profiles before sending the letter.
Holton Arms scrubber her yearbooks from the internet, but someone found them and saved them first. **MIC DROP**
For starters, she’s a far-left activist who had pictures on her social media accounts in a Pink Women’s March hat with a sign that says “Not My President.”
Allegedly, a former Facebook friend saw a post where she was bitter about then-Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorusch. In the post, she states that someone should accuse him of rape to block the nomination. When the friend replied it was unethical to destroy an innocent mans’ life over false accusations, she replied “So.” (This is allegedly and sent by a tweet. It has NOT been confirmed, however, so take it with a grain of salt.)
Next, her yearbooks detail racist, alcohol-fueled weekends at Holton Arms. Sexual encounters with boys were not only frequent, but they also bragged about them. Lovely.
There’s MUCH more. Maybe in another article. Let’s keep moving.
Many people believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. They think that something happened to her. It just wasn’t Brett Kavanaugh who did it.
Senator Diane Feinstein received this letter back in July. She decided to sit on it until the 11th hour of the confirmation process.
Then, as if by magic, the letter gets leaked to the public and Dr. Ford’s request to remain anonymous was ignored. The Democrats sprung into action to not only destroy one man’s life but their “victim’s” as well.
Senator Chuck Schumer publicly promised to block this Supreme Court nomination.
“I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same. The stakes are simply too high for anything less.” – Senator Chuck Schumer
Before they announced a nominee, the Democrats had signs printed opposing all the top nominees before one was named.
The entire confirmation process was a complete circus with the interviews being interrupted about every fifteen minutes.
That was all before the accusation was even released.
During the Ford/Kavanaugh testimony, it was made clear that Senator Feinstein and her staff hired the attorneys for Dr. Ford.
The line of questioning to Judge Kavanaugh was hardly questioning at all. It was a collaborated effort by Senate Dems to bully the judge into withdrawing his nomination and agreeing to an FBI investigation.
The circus continued, and as the proceedings went on, it became more and more clear that this was, in fact, a political hit job. It was a calculated character assassination of a man who spent his entire life defending our Constitution so that he could watch it get desecrated in his name.
The Wake-Up Call
This embarrassing show of the Democrats weaponizing the #MeToo for political gain was the last straw for many.
It was disgusting and embarrassing. Many feel bad for not just Judge Kavanaugh but Dr. Ford as well. The blatantly obvious politically motivated seek and destroy was exactly what many on the left needed to call it quits with the Democrats.
Not a single democrat I know believes her. Not a single person I know believes her. In fact, this has caused my dem friends to #WalkAway to vote red in 36 days
— Danni Dallas (@DanniDallas) October 1, 2018
Looking for my early polling station ASAP. After seeing what these people tried to pull on America and do to him and his family, I could never vote for a Democrat again!!! NEVER!!! #Walkaway MAGA
— Jeff Petersen (@Jeffvp) October 1, 2018
I can do this all day. These were just at the top of the search results. There are many, many more. Check for yourself.
Good job, Democrats. Not only did you add fuel to the supposed “Russian Bot” #WalkAway Campaign, but you also may have just destroyed your mid-terms.
So on behalf of all of us in the #WalkAway Campaign, we want to thank you AGAIN for your support. We couldn’t do it without you.
Now get back out there and screw up some more stuff. We have the #WalkAway March coming up soon!
The Left vs. The Right
At one point in my life, I had no idea what the difference between Republicans and Democrats was. Generally, I felt strongly about specific issues, but I didn’t necessarily assign them to a “party.”
Like many young adults, I allowed emotion to drive my opinions about many topics.
First of all, I didn’t understand that Republicans were for small government and Democrats for large government. I knew how I felt about all the major partisan issues; I just didn’t know which side claimed them.
Once I learned more about each platform, I began looking deeper into their histories, campaign messages and prominent figures.
A noticeable trend became clear almost immediately:
The further to the Left a party goes, the more Coercion and Force they use to accomplish their goals.
Don’t get me wrong; politics gets dirty on both sides. However, in most cases, when one party loses an election or the majority; they lick their wounds and plan better for the next time. That’s how it used to be, clearly, it’s not anymore.
As the Democratic Party has shifted further to the Left, so have their tactics. Instead of campaigning and getting votes, they cry, scream and accuse.
They didn’t win because of inadequacy. Nope, they lost because of systematic oppression. They even have an activist group for each type of oppression that we know of (there are new ones being invented every day).
- Black Lives Matter- Everything is Racist
- 4th Wave Feminists- Everyone is Sexist
- Antifa- Everyone is a Nazi
- LBGTQIABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP+- Everything is homophobic
- Socialists- Everything is oppressive
Now that the gang is all here, let’s deploy the troops.
Shame, intimidate, coerce and force their opinions, beliefs, and policies on the general population.
Find an injustice and throw a big enough fit until they eventually cave into their demands. Don’t believe me?
- Boyscouts of America: Clearly not accepting girls into your association is sexism. And starting our own organization is out of the question. Nope, they destroyed 100+ years of tradition instead.
- Plastic Straws: Obviously far more important than drug use or violent crime. Ban them and threaten jail time for violations.
- Pronouns: Use the wrong one and they’ll make sure you get fired. In fact, don’t label gender at all. This one is a violent crime they care about.
- Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches: They’re racist and so are you. If you question this or disagree, more proof you’re a racist.
- Healthcare: Buy their healthcare at quadruple the cost so they can afford to give healthcare to other people who can’t afford it because they drove the prices up to high. Oh and if you don’t, they’ll fine you.
- Jobs: Hire women for your board of Directors or else they’ll sue you for sexism. Doesn’t matter if they are qualified, or if someone else is MORE qualified; you have to do it.
- Businesses: If your business is too successful you have to get permission from them to exist. Obviously, by creating a great product that people want to use, you’re clearly stealing from poor people…or something.
- Social Media: They don’t like what you’re saying so you can’t say it anymore. You’re not wrong, they just don’t agree with you so if you don’t shut up, they’ll shut you up.
- Your Money: They know how to spend your money better than you do. And they don’t care if you worked hard for it, there are other people who don’t have as much, so you have to give it to them.
- Being anything but a Democrat: Clearly, you’re a Nazi, so they’re going to punch you and justify it by calling you a Nazi. Even if you’re a minority. Definitely all Nazis.
- Being a Baby: How dare this parasite invade someone’s bodies without their consent. They must be forcibly removed.
- Being an all Around Awesome Guy: You’re not on their side, so they’re going to destroy your career, reputation, character and hopefully your life with baseless accusations. That’s what you get for not being one of them.
- Using Euphemisms: Even if they use the same one, they will call you a racist.
This is only a few examples of how the Left must use force and coercion to accomplish their goals.
Obviously, they know what’s better for us than we do.
Same Slippery Slope, Different Time and Place
Every single society that went too far left and ended up with Socialism or Communism almost inevitably became Dictatorships.
Have you ever wondered why?
The shift always starts innocently enough. Play on emotions, create outrage and victimhood. Provide a solution in the form of equal outcomes and eliminate equal opportunity. It’s not about lifting everyone up, it’s about bringing everyone else down.
For the over-achievers, the ambitious ones and the free-thinkers; this is unacceptable. Either conform to their beliefs or get shamed into submission. Still want to resist? Then you must be silenced.
It’s psychological warfare, and when they militarize, it becomes Soviet Russia and Fascist Italy. They don’t want peace, they want submission.
When we can’t accomplish our tasks with elections, democracy and debate; we will force you. If you resist, we will attack you. Not your ideas or your beliefs. No, we attack your character, your integrity, you as a person and seek to destroy it all.
It’s the same story throughout history. Exploit emotionally vulnerable groups of people, exaggerate perceived injustices, offer utopian society, and mobilize.
Our country is heading down this path. We’ve seen it happen before in all parts of the world.
Question is, are you going to let it happen to you?
Facebook Censorship Is Getting Worse
You’re playing with fire, Facebook. The censorship of Conservative voices is becoming more obvious every day. You have yet to ban a left-leaning or liberal person by “mistake”. Or at least I haven’t heard of one.
So far, it has happened to Brandon Straka, PragerU, David Harris Jr, Diamond and Silk, and Candace Owens. Without fail, (and once the media gets ahold of it) the ban ultimately gets lifted and an apology is issued. It’s dismissed as a “mistake”. This doesn’t even include the thousands of regular users who get thrown in “Facebook Jail” for stupid things.
Facebook’s own employees confess that inside their own walls exists a “political monoculture“. Even further, former employees admit that Conservative stories and media outlets are suppressed regularly. Despite his testimony in front of Congress, Mark Zuckerberg continues to allow censorship on his platform.
With 2.219 billion Facebook users worldwide, they beat out every other platform with ease. This also means they have the most to lose.
The Conservative Price Tag
Let’s just run through some statistics real quick:
- Facebook’s Annual Revenue is $40.7B as of 2017. Most of this comes from digital advertising with 6 million active advertisers per month.
- 219 million of those users are from the United States which makes up approximately 10% of their total users. (India is first with 270 million users)
- 43% of adults in the United States are registered Republican or lean right as Independents. That’s 94,170,000 right-leaning or Republican users GONE.
Ultimately, we have to assume 10% is the same for businesses since I couldn’t find statistics to say otherwise.
Total Revenue of Facebook: $40.7 Billion x 10% = $4.7 Billion earned from the United States.
$4.7 Billion Dollars x 43% (Conservative Users) = $2,068,000,000
In other words, Facebook could lose $2 Billion (with a B) by censoring their Conservative users.
The Snowball Effect
Digital Marketing 101: Go where your audience is.
If 43% of my audience is on Twitter instead of Facebook, I’m taking 43% of my budget to Twitter.
At some point, large pages with hundreds of thousands of followers will build their audiences on other platforms. They will go where their voices will be heard. Their followers will do what they do best, follow. They’ll follow them right off your platform.
Guess what will happen to their friends, they will start spending more time on other platforms as well.
In the end, it all means less audience for people that are most important to Facebook: Their Advertisers.
Facebook dominates online time use more than any other platform. Along with Google, they control 80% of online traffic. If you no longer use Facebook or Google, that means they lose tons of data. They can no longer target you with ads or monopolize your attention span.
Their goal is to keep you spending as much time on their network as possible. It’s where you get your news, stay connected with friends, follow your favorite celebrities and more. So what happens if you just up and walked away?
The $2 Billion Gamble
Facebook’s opinion about your opinion seems more important than your value as a customer. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the case based on their actions. Your opinion is so dangerous to them that they would rather risk losing you as a customer than respect that you think differently than they do.
Silencing you is more important than the money you bring that pays the people they employ to discriminate against you.
With no viable competitor to Facebook, they basically hold the keys to the city. Unless you want to lose contact with everyone you know, you’re not going anywhere. Or at least that’s what they think.
With each passing day, their users become more frustrated and angry. Their frustration then motivates them to find alternatives.
Users are so desperate for an alternative that Donald Trump Jr is offering the king of social media followers as an incentive to developers. Will it be enough?
Only time can tell but one thing I know for sure is that most people don’t trust Facebook or Twitter. Their double-standards are digging their own grave and all it will take is one reasonable alternative to come along.
You may not value our opinions, Facebook, but you will value the $2 billion we take with us when we leave you for good.
Facebook Censors Its Employees into the Conservative Closet
I’m not shocked to learn Facebook censors its employees. No, what I am shocked to learn is that Facebook actually has conservative employees. Now that we know, it comes as no surprise that this small group of people fears speaking up.
It all started with an NY Times article discussing an internal post on the company’s employee board. The message, by Facebook engineer Mike Amerige, calls out the company’s “intolerant liberal culture”. Evidently, Facebook employees have a mob mentality when one of their colleagues does not agree with them.
As a result, more than 100 of these employees have started their own Facebook group titled “FB’ers For Political Diversity“. Many Facebook employees have complained about these employees and their posts. They feel the posts are “insensitive to minorities”. (I’m sorry, but suggesting someone needs to come here legally is not insensitive to minorities)
Considering how poorly Facebook treats its conservative users, I can’t imagine being an employee.
They Attack Their Character, Not Their Ideas
Many know this all too well. No matter what we say or how we say it, liberals won’t debate with facts. No, they attack you personally.
If you really want to know how a liberal feels about gays and people of color, just disagree with them.
I’ve been called more horrible names and heard more homophobic slurs from liberals than any conservative. It’s so bad that they don’t want to prove you wrong. No, they want to completely ruin your life, your business, and your reputation.
Facebook’s liberal employees are using this tactic against their conservative coworkers. Many of the employees at Facebook are living in fear because they support President Trump.
Don’t believe me? Here is the statement from the employee that started this campaign for political diversity.
History Repeats Itself
America has a long history of discrimination. Whether it be against blacks, women or gays; the minorities of the United States have had to fight hard for their equality.
This discrimination does not sit on the shoulders of one party over the other. No, both Democrats and Republicans are equally guilty of discriminating against certain groups. The Democrats would love for you to believe they have been the party fighting for minorities throughout history, but we know better.
Republicans have openly opposed gay marriage even to this day. It’s becoming scarce, but it exists.
Democrats are the party of the KKK and slavery. History is quite clear on this one.
Both parties have discriminated against women and have been part of the wage gap.
There are laws in place that prevent discriminating against people. Segregation is a thing of the past, right? Wrong.
America is quickly entering a new phase of discrimination and it’s all about your political party. It’s now not just acceptable but encouraged behavior to discriminate against conservatives. Much like the era of the 1960’s where you could say, “We don’t serve your kind here”, America is spiraling down this path again.
Liberals have shown this multiple times over the past year.
- Red Hen Restaurant Kicks Sarah Sanders and Family Out
- Antifa Harasses Black Conservative Candace Owens in Philly Cafe
- Protesters run Kiersten Nielsen out of a Mexican Restaurant
- Liberal Mob attacks Texas Restaurant for serving AG Jeff Sessions
- Liberal Throws Drink on Tomi Lahren and Runs her out of Brunch with her Mom
Name ONE TIME a liberal has been kicked out, heckled or harassed in public. I’ll wait.
Irony Doesn’t Begin to Cover It
The irony of all this is, Democrats/liberals pride themselves on being the champions of equality. Peace, love, tolerance, and acceptance.
Yet, they are the ones assaulting, harassing and intimidating anyone who disagrees with them. They are pushing the “racism” narrative so hard that it now becomes a justification for breaking the law. You’re not punching a person, you’re punching a Nazi.
I argue to you tonight, all punches are not equal morally. In the eyes of the law, yes. But in the eyes of good and evil, here’s the argument: If you’re a punk that comes to start trouble in a mask and hurt people, you’re not about any virtuous cause. You’re just somebody who’s going to be held to the standard of doing something wrong. Chris Cuomo, CNN
As long as Democrats accuse their target of racism or evil, it’s justified. Liberals will repeal the First Amendment to prevent such opposing views (hate speech to them).
How ironic is it that an all-white Antifa mob can accuse black conservative Candace Owens of being a white supremacist?
Facebook is Blatantly Biased
Once again, we have MULTIPLE examples of this. The most recent being the 99.99% decrease in reach and complete elimination of PragerU videos.
What happened? So glad you asked. Basically, enough snowflakes reported PragerU videos for “hate speech” and offensive content that the case was sent to a review team within Facebook.
Here, one employee. That’s right. ONE. SINGLE. EMPLOYEE. She made this decision completely on her own biases. Furthermore, she decided PragerU videos were, in fact (because she disagreed with their message), hate speech and she wiped them all from Facebook.
Facebook has called it an “employee error” and she has been sent back to their resource center to be re-educated on the company’s values.
Is this the same thing that’s happening to David Harris Jr? He is currently experiencing the exact same thing with zero explanation from Facebook. How do we, as conservatives, protect ourselves from the bias that so often lands on the shoulders of a single person? Change platforms? Yes, hopefully, we can find one that works.
Is It Legal?
There are laws protecting you against discrimination if you’re a minority. Or if you’re a woman.
What about your political party? There are no laws that protect someone that I’m aware of.
The liberal employees are targeting their conservative colleagues daily. It has nothing to do with the quality of their work or their qualifications. No, it’s because of who they voted for. The liberal Facebook mob is attacking their character.
They live under intense scrutiny that at any moment, something minor could get them fired. Hostile work environment? I think so.
I’ve personally reached out to the Facebook group for these employees to let them know they are not alone. We’re joining together to fight back. If Facebook (and other tech giants) are smart, they’ll put their politics aside or face extinction.
The Difference Between Conservative Blacks and Liberal Blacks
I was raised in a Democrat household during the turbulent 60s and 70s. As a youngster, I knew nothing of political parties. However, my parents managed to instill conservative principles within me that, as I grew older, eventually caused me to rethink my affiliation with the Democrat Party.
The more I thought about it, the more I came to realize that I had nothing in common with the Democrat Party, and I eventually left! However, for the next three (3) decades, I had no political home. I absolutely could not return to the Democrat Party, every minor political party that I investigated left much to be desired, and the Republican Party was composed of a bunch of old, white racists…weren’t they?
At least…that’s what I had been led to believe!
With that as a backdrop, I want to relate something that I have come to know about one of the important differences between liberal blacks and conservative blacks.
Racism In My Youth
My first recollection of racism occurred when I was about 9 years old and living in Philadelphia, PA. Amazingly, I didn’t even recognize it at the time.
My older brother, a couple of friends, and I were returning home from a day at the park (walking) and decided to stop for ice-cream at a drug store (in those days, virtually all drug stores had a soda and ice-cream fountain). We walked in and took seats at the counter and waited to be served. There were only a few patrons, and the woman behind the counter did not look busy, at all. Despite that, we waited several minutes, and no one seemed eager to help us. My older brother finally asked for service, and I will never forget the response from the clerk: “We don’t serve your kind here.”
In my ignorance, I thought she meant that they didn’t serve KIDS there! However, when we told our parents about it, we were warned to never return to that store. We were told that the reason the clerk said what she said was that we were black. My takeaway from that was that white people did not like black people.
The True Source of the Racism
Over the next several years, I came to experience additional incidents of racism from time to time. However, occasionally, I would meet some whites who appeared to be different and accepted me as an equal. Although I wondered what the difference was, I didn’t really dwell on it.
Years later, when I had begun to pay more attention to politics, I learned that many of those who exhibited racist tendencies toward me were Democrats. I could only be certain of those who made it known who they supported in elections, so I cannot honestly state that all were Democrats, but I now began to take mental notes.
I also noticed that many blacks spoke disparagingly about all whites. Not exactly sure what to make of this phenomenon, but I knew that what was being talked about was not universally true. By this time, I was aware that virtually all blacks that I knew voted almost 100% for Democrats.
I Snuck Off the Democratic Plantation
This was about the time that Jimmy Carter was POTUS. In his race against Reagan, I had voted for Reagan but kept it a closely-guarded secret. I didn’t exactly know why, but I surmised that it was probably in my best interest to do so since Reagan belonged to that racist, dastardly Republican Party. Even so, I sensed that he, himself, was a decent, honorable man.
I was very confused about all of this and decided that the best cure for confusion was knowledge. Thus, I began a thorough search for the truth. Slowly (no internet in those days), I unearthed one nugget of truth after another and was dumbfounded at what I discovered.
Imagine my surprise to learn that it was not ALL WHITES who condoned and perpetuated the vile and horrific condition of slavery on blacks in America…it was white DEMOCRATS!
The KKK, lynchings, intimidation, Jim Crow, Black Codes, and other such evils were not “racist” Republican constructs…they were tools of the Democratic Party designed to keep the newly-freed black slaves from voting for Republican candidates.
However, the more I learned, the more difficult it became to accept the truth. If all this was true, why did blacks vote for Democrats at all? It took a while, but I eventually learned about how the Democratic Party duped blacks into trading the old plantations of slavery for a new plantation of slavery by using handouts to accomplish their goal. It was immensely successful and persists to this day.
The Tea Party
But then, something remarkable happened. A gentleman by the name of Rick Santelli became fed up with out-of-control government spending and went on a rant on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in February 2009. He became the catalyst for the American Tea Party phenomenon that swept the nation almost immediately thereafter. I agreed with everything he had said and later joined the newly-formed First Coast Tea Party of Jacksonville Florida.
In the Tea Party, I met and/or came to know thousands of like-minded individuals, who like me, realized that our nation was in trouble. Over the next several years, I was a very active Tea Party member who participated in rallies, fundraisers, education of the membership, and more. I even became a regular speaker at local Tea Party gatherings…invited by Billie Tucker (founder) and other Tea Party organizers.
Then came one of the biggest shocks of my entire life:
MOST OF THESE TEA PARTY PEOPLE…WERE REPUBLICANS!
White Republicans, Black Republicans, Hispanic/Latino Republicans, (legal) Immigrant Republicans, Men, Women…you name it! All Republicans…with a smattering of Independents, and even a few Democrats.
Talk about CONFUSION on an almost cosmic scale!
But as I came to know these people, I discovered something else. The Black Republicans that I met seemed different from Black Democrats. Most of the Black Democrats almost always spoke negatively about all Whites, irrespective of party affiliation and seemed to be exceedingly concerned about racism and complained incessantly about being the target of racism. None of the Black Republicans did so. I found this to be stunning! What was the important difference that I alluded to earlier? It took a while, but I believe I have finally discovered the reason.
- Black Democrats shun Republicans and interact mostly with other Democrats.
- Since the Democrat Party is the party of racism and slavery, it stands to reason that much of the racism experienced by Black Democrats comes from Whites in their own party.
- Black Republicans interact mostly with other Republicans of all colors.
- Since the Republican Party is the party of freedom…well…you do the math!
Here is the bottom line: Black liberals are the ones complaining about racism and being called the N-word. Blacks who are conservatives RARELY initiate complaints or concerns about it.
The reason I am so confident that this is true is that in the last 11 years (since joining the Republican Party), I have not experienced any racism from another Republican at all!
I challenge any Black Democrat to make the same claim!
