Mollie Tibbetts

Mollie Tibbetts: Would She Approve of Politicizing Her Death?

On Tuesday, August 21st, 2018, Mollie Tibbett’s missing person case ended in the worst possible way.  Her father, Rob Tibbetts confirmed that the body of the young woman found in Iowa was in fact, Mollie.

Her alleged killer, Christian Behana Rivera, was in this country illegally.  His employer, Yarrabee Farms confirmed today that they did complete background checks prior to employing Rivera.

However,  that the documentation he provided, did not, in fact, belong to him.

Upon learning this information, the politicizing of Mollie Tibbett’s death became the main focus for conservatives and Republicans all the way up to 45 himself.

This horrific event is more proof in a very long list of events that could have been prevented if America would strengthen its borders.  Blocking illegal immigrants from entering our country would have a clear impact on reducing crime.

Democrats are actively deflecting the fact that Mollie’s killer was in the country illegally. Obviously, it only damages their case for open borders and abolishing ICE. Senator Elizabeth Warren redirected a question yesterday about Rivera to the fact that children were being separated at the border.

Much of the focus has now shifted to Mollie’s killer.  The political firestorm surrounding Rivera is overshadowing who Mollie is as a person.  Instead, she becomes the new face of political arguments that will be used as irrefutable evidence of necessary change.

Mollie’s voice has been taken from her.  She cannot speak for herself anymore.  So I went on a search to learn more about Mollie Tibbetts to answer a nagging question in my mind:

Would Mollie Tibbetts Be OK with Politicizing Her Death?

To learn more about Mollie, I went to the most obvious place to learn more about a twenty-year-old college student. Twitter.

It didn’t take me long to discover that she was definitely not a fan of President Trump and was an outspoken Democrat.  Many of her posts focus on mental health and women’s health.  She was a Planned Parenthood advocate and was not shy to engage with conservatives in all the ways she viewed them as wrong.

Aside from the social issues she was passionate about, Mollie seems like she was a normal, bubbly young girl.  She loved her friends and told them often. Her day to day life was filled with the normal college student obstacles.  She was very open about her struggles with insecurity and mental health.  Her battle with her body image was a huge struggle in her life.  Perhaps it was what influenced her choice in major?

Immigration and other social issues didn’t seem to be important to her, though.  In my quest to get to know Mollie better, I stumbled on a few tweets that might give a clue to how she felt about it.

Now, before anyone goes all judge and jury, let me just say that this tweet does not in any way justify what happened to her.  No one and I mean NO ONE deserves to lose their life because of a tweet, comment, political opinion or otherwise.  The only reason I have included this tweet is to gain a better understanding of Mollie as a person.

Based on what limited knowledge of Mollie we have, I think it would be safe to say that Mollie would not approve of being the new poster girl for Immigration Reform.  In addition to this, her family is fighting back against it.

Mollie’s Family Takes on Conservatives

This has been a rough week for the Tibbetts family.  The search for her carried on for weeks and the outcome was everyone’s worst fear.

Since the media firestorm is now in overdrive, many of her family members are pushing back against the conservatives stating the obvious.

Please remember, Evil Comes in All Colors.- Billie Jo Calderwood, Mollie’s Aunt

As you can see, Mollie’s family is not ok with anyone using her name for a political change.  I think it’s safe to say that if Mollie were still alive and the victim was someone else, she would feel the same way.  We don’t know this for sure, obviously but the signs point to such.

This leads me to my next question:

Should A Victim Be Used to Prove a Political Point, Even if They Themselves Would Not Approve?

I’m curious to see the community reactions on this topic.

In one hand, the parallel between Mollie’s killer, Kate Steinle’s Killer and other violent criminals who are also illegals cannot be ignored.

So despite the family’s objections, is the cause greater than their cries against it?  Without indisputable evidence, can change really take place?  Is preventing more crimes like this more important than respecting the family’s wishes?

I’m not sure.

Mollie was an in intelligent, passionate young girl full of hope.  Her future was bright.

I know that change needs to happen.  We need better border security despite the left’s cries that doing so is a violation of human rights.

What I can’t seem to get past is:

Is being a catalyst for change more important than truly remembering what Mollie Tibbetts stood for and believed in her own life?

NFL Kneeling: Activism for the Lazy

Here’s the thing about NFL kneeling. I grew up in Colorado and was a die-hard Broncos fan.

I BLED BLUE AND ORANGE. Sundays were my Do Not Disturb, I’m watching football day.

We were the sworn enemy of the Oakland Raiders and wore our NFL gear with pride.

When this whole NFL kneeling controversy started with Colin Kaepernick, I didn’t pay much attention because he wasn’t on my team.

In my mind, he was a horrible quarterback and was convinced this was just a way to distract people from the real issue with him: He’s a terrible player

His pity party carried on after the 2016 season when he was cut from the 49ers.  Surprised?  I wasn’t.  Look at this stats.  Of course in his mind, this wasn’t the case.  Like most spoiled, entitled brats, they are incapable of taking any kind of responsibility for themselves.

The fact that he hadn’t been fined the first time he did it was shocking to me.

The NFL was more than happy to fine Brian Urlacher for wearing an unlicensed hat for Vitamin Water during a press conference.

Or Sean Taylor of the Pittsburgh Steelers for writing “21” on his eye black to commemorate the memory of a fallen friend. Or even fining Frank Gore of the 49ers because his socks were too low. Not joking.

They weren’t afraid to fine Kaepernick for wearing these pink Beats headphones for Breast Cancer Awareness.

So why the change in policy all of sudden?

Had the NFL maintained some level of consistency with their policies and fine him the first time, they may have been able to avoid this whole mess in the first place.

And yet, here we are barreling toward round 2 of this divisive nonsense.  And yes, I believe that it’s nonsense.

Here’s Why

For starters, many other conservative personalities have already emphasized the BLATANT hypocrisy of this protest by pointing out that the majority of black men in this country who are murdered are actually killed by other black men. Not police officers. Not to mention, the NFL creates more victims of violence than it actually prevents considering their players are arrested for domestic violence more than any other professional sport.

Now I’m not saying that racism is completely dead in this country and I’m also not saying that it isn’t important to bring these issues out into the light where people can discuss them, find solutions and work towards solving an actual problem.

I support activism, freedom of speech and am always happy to see people in positions of influence us their status for good.

Like going out into a community and helping to build youth centers or feed the homeless.

Kneeling for the National Anthem isn’t activism.  It’s just plain lazy.

It takes zero effort, money or time to kneel down during our nation’s greatest song.  As soon as it’s over, the players stand up, play the game, collect their millions of dollars and drive home in whatever fancy car they have.

Activism and community service are no longer a concern to them as they pull up to their multimillion-dollar homes.  They won’t be concerned with any more “community service” until next Sunday.

(To be fair, I’m sure there are at least a few kneeling players who devote some time to their communities.  For the most part, though, the players we see as being really involved in their communities are the ones standing.)

Anyone can exploit some easy media coverage. It takes a real hero to go out into the community and do some actual work.

The second and arguably more important factor to consider is, they are exploiting their place of employment.

Source:ESPN

If I was hired by a business and I chose to use it as a platform to make political statements, anger 50% of my customers and cost them millions of dollars in revenue, what do you think would happen? I would get fired.  Yep, I would definitely get fired and so would you.

This is what it all really boils down to.

These players are employees (contracted or otherwise) and if their behavior is detrimental to the company, they should get fired.  These protests are angering a huge portion of their customer base, their advertisers, and sponsors.  The NFL needs to stop kowtowing around this issue and do what they should have done in the first place. Run the NFL like the business that it is.

Establish a set of rules and then actually stick to them.

If you don’t like them, go get a regular job and see how they feel about your protest then.

Pretty sure there are hundreds of young athletes praying every single night for an opportunity that these players have. And I would be willing to bet money that they would go out there, play their butts off and be grateful they can live in a country where they get paid millions of dollars to play a sport.

I was hoping I could simply go back to cheering for my home team this season. However, it appears the NFL will continue to be bullied and pushed around by its own players and their identity politics.

To that, I say, hockey anyone?

GOOOOOOO KNIGHTS!

What Is the Closet on the Right?

About The Closet on the Right

All too often, the opposition is attacking Conservatives for their beliefs.

Sadly, it happens almost daily that another story of someone wearing a Maga hat or vocally supporting or President gets assaulted.

Best case scenario: You get some vile, hateful and disgusting threats or insults thrown at you.

Worst case scenario: They hit you with a bike lock and end up in the hospital.

Thus, as we see the temperature raising across the country, more people slowly sneak into what I now call: The Conservative Closet.

The censoring, bias, and double-standard existing between liberals and conservatives are appalling.  Conservatives are routinely blocked, banned and censored on social media for simply voicing their opinions.  However, when a liberal user blatantly violates the terms of service by using threats of violence, prohibited images, and hate speech; they do nothing.

We have seen this happen so many times that it’s nauseating how blatant the bias is.

 

We Face Public Harassment and Assault

The discrimination doesn’t simply stop there, though.  Now, they are stalking, harassing and assaulting prominent Conservatives every time they step foot in public.

We all know the infamous case of Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the Red Hen in Virginia but do you know about the harassment of Tomi Lehren, Candace Owens (damn girl, liberals really hate you), and Kirsten McNielsen just to name a few?

Unfortunately for everyday, regular citizens, the unstable Left are moving beyond high profile figures as their targets.

Teenagers brave enough to openly support our President are being assaulted, their property being stolen and destroyed or damaged.

Unfortunately, the Alt-Left like Antifa, BLM and 4th Wave Feminist share this temperament with the party leadership who are calling on people to publicly confront and harass any conservative they meet.

Many Are Afraid to Say Speak their Minds

Conservatives have collectively gone into hiding to avoid the loss of friends, income, family, and their safety.

Many outspoken conservatives will continue speaking their minds defiantly, proudly and without regard for the opinions of others.  These members of our community are incredibly important as they act as a support system for others.

They are a source of strength and resilience.  Their contribution is invaluable.

But what about the others?  What about the people who cannot afford to risk the overwhelming repercussions of such defiance?  What about the rest who honestly want peaceful, respectful and calm discussions when this no longer exists in our society?

Do they just listen and watch from deep inside this Conservative Closet?

My answer is, No. Not anymore.

The Closet on the Right is here to return the voice to those who have lost it.

This is your platform.  We are your megaphone.

Pedophiles in the LGBT: Access Denied

NO.  Pedophiles are NOT welcome in the LGBT Community.  Article over.

Just kidding. I actually have a lot to say about this because I have ZERO TOLERANCE for two kinds of people, those who hurt children and animals.

So if you’re here looking for an ally or support, leave now because this isn’t going to end well for you.

About a month ago, I saw a Tedx video of a woman calmly explaining that pedophilia is a natural human attraction.

She begins in a very sing-song voice proclaiming that “Jonas” a Munich Law student is a closeted pedophile who is attracted to female children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old.

Her tone and demeanor are obviously seeking to invoke sympathy for Jonas, painting him as a tortured, suppressed individual who must hide from his family and others.

She continues to attempt to distinguish “pedophilia” as a normal sexual attraction that can be homosexual, bisexual or heterosexual in nature.  Furthermore, this sexual orientation of “pedophilia” must not be confused with sexual abuse which is obviously illegal.

 

Exactly, Ryan Gosling. Exactly.

I was unable to find the recording date of this TEDx talk, but I do know that it was preceded by a Salon.com article telling the story of a Virtuous Pedophile.

In the story, they explain how a “virtuous pedophile” is a person who has an attraction to children but does not act on it.  (Give this guy a medal)

All this new positive media coverage seems to have emboldened the closet perverts to start peering out from whatever hole they’ve been living in and make an attempt to rebrand themselves.

Pedo SymbologyNow, pedophiles and their advocates refer to themselves as “MAP and “NOMAP”.  These stand for “Minor-Attracted Person” and “Non-Offending Minor Attracted Person”.  They have a flag and are actively trying to latch onto the LGBT community.

Their claim is that their attraction is a uncontrollable sexuality that is the same as homosexuality, bisexuality, and heterosexuality.  They have no control over it, therefore, we must normalize it and accept it.

They were born this way.

Love is Love.

Right? WRONG.

You may not be able to control your sexual attraction, however, there is one major defining factor that can not be overcome.  CONSENT.

Those of us in the LGBT community only engage with others in the LGBT community when both individuals are CONSENTING ADULTS.  End of story.

The pathetic attempt to rename or rebrand these predators is just that, pathetic.

I can rename cyanide to be “fast-acting indefinite sleep-aid”, and it doesn’t mean I can just purchase it at my local Walgreens.

Or perhaps we should start calling nuclear warheads, “population reboot button”.

It actually works both ways if you think about it.

If pedophiles are in fact a Minor-Attracted person, then you should start calling abortion what it really is.  MURDER.

But Lynzee, if they are “non-offending” and want to seek treatment so they don’t hurt anyone, shouldn’t you be supportive?

Great question. In theory, yes.

However, in my opinion, those individuals would have to register, seek treatment that is supervised, medication and allow their electronic devices to be monitored.  What person would actually want to live that way regardless of how “virtuous” they claim to be?

On the other hand, if we vilify them and treat them like the predators they are, they will stay in hiding which could potentially lead to a collapse in personal will-power.

So what is the answer? I have no idea because I’m not a psychologist who specializes in this type of mental illness.  I don’t know what the likelihood of them offending is.

However, none of this even begins to cover “Minor-Attracted People”.  Let’s not forget about them.

Since they don’t have “Non-Offending” attached to their new shiny name, does that mean they are actively pursuing a relationship with a minor?  If so, I have a new sleep-aid that just became available on the market.

And that’s the nicest possible version of what you would experience if I ever come in contact with you.

So let me be very clear, normalizing this will never make it ok.  We will not let you attach yourselves onto this community at any cost.

YOU ARE NOT WELCOME.

 

Please sign this Petition to tell pedophiles you are not welcome in the LGBT Community.

Will the Real Democratic Party, Please Stand Up?

Will the real democratic party, please stand up?

We know you are out there, supporting your cause.  Your voices have become lost in the sea of hysteria and we desperately need you to come forward.

America’s two-party system relies on having two STRONG, reliable and, sane parties to represent it’s citizens equally.  Each side of the aisle coming to the table and working to compromise and govern.

Democrats and Republicans are like Calvin and Hobbes. (Omg I’m such a millennial) Each side equally ornery in their own right but essential to the story.  Without one, there would be no books filled with heartwarming adventures, subtle philosophical insights, and generationally appropriate growth.

Without the Democratic Party, there wouldn’t be; America: Chapter 45.

So, as a Conservative who’s life has been impacted tremendously like the positive consequences of your battles (Gay Marriage), I implore the real Democratic Party to please stand up.

Your party is being swallowed by militant, intolerant and radical activists.  Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and Feminists are literally taking your party hostage with their messages of “You’re either with us or against us” rhetoric.  They use violence, vulgarity and “shock value” to get their voices heard, rather than respectful conversation and compromise.

And here’s the problem: I don’t see any of you standing up to them. 


The Democratic Party has become so fear-based that even your leaders have joined in on the vitriol, condoning harassment, and violent public disobedience.  You are afraid to stand up and say, “You’ve gone too far.  This isn’t what we stand for.  This isn’t how we make progress”. Even the media has caved to the pressure.

We all see it with your half-hearted attempts to vilify something that the leaders of your own party openly campaigned and advocated for just a few short years ago.  Do not tell me that your President cared more about families and border separations than we do because if you believe that then I have a Libyan prince who wants to chat with you about your inheritance. You’re afraid that if you disagree with their METHODS, you will be labeled a racist, a Nazi, a bigot or a homophobe.

You are afraid that if you condemn the violence, the vandalism and complete disregard for others’ humanity, you will put a target on your own back even though you support the underlying message.

I have yet to see a single Liberal or Democratic friend of mine openly, and confidently speak out against the groups who have resorted to such unacceptable levels of behavior.

Instead, you subtly agree or show your support thru watered down messages and articles that selectively highlight pieces of information that fit your narrative.

 

Antifa Rally Charlottesville
Source: Far Left Watch

Instead, you call anything we do the work of Russian bots and scream that Russia is interfering with our digital media.

How convenient that you don’t see members of Antifa carrying Soviet Russian Flags and the Communist Hammer/Sickle on their Audi keychain.

How convenient that you are terrified of the threat of Russia and their president when people on your side are openly and aggressively campaigning for the most radical and tyrannical part of Russian history.

They’re fighting racists though, right?  So it’s ok.

Ironically, every single Conservative, Republican or Libertarian I know openly condemns racism and white supremacy.  Don’t believe me?  Here’s a clip of the “Proud Boysrejecting a white supremacist group from joining their rally.

Now, let me just say that I do not support the Proud Boys or necessarily what they stand for.  Just like anything alt-left, I equally and strongly condemn anything considered alt-right.  My point is simply that even if the rightest of right groups publicly rejects racism, then it basically destroys the entire argument that conservatives are racist.

I need you to let go of your hate and resentment for a few minutes to realize what may be at stake.  Walk out your front door and take a long hard look around your neighborhood.  The next time you get your coffee or even hold open a door for a stranger, there is a human wanting to coexist peacefully in this country with you.

Chances are, they do not agree with you on everything.  Chances are, you may not like this person or want them in your life.  Chances are, this person plays an important role in our society and more directly, in your community.

No matter how seemingly small our roles are within this universe, our humanity and our contribution to society with our ideas and beliefs are important.

So please, I’m begging you.  Will the real Democratic Party, please stand up?

 

 

 

I Came Out to My Gay Best Friend

It’s been about a week since I posted my #WalkAway video.

The response has been overwhelming.

 

I tried keeping up with all the comments at first, but I lost track a while ago.  I feel like each person took the time to write a loving comment to me and I should respond with gratitude.  Not just a canned response, but a heartfelt thank you. I don’t think I can even type that fast, though.

 

However, I’m doing pretty well keeping up with the messages and I think I’ve finally decided what I want to call my Blog.  The idea has been bouncing around in my head for months and I’m pretty sure Michelle is sick of me talking about it.  There couldn’t possibly be a better time for me to launch my blog idea and of course I came up with the perfect name in this whirlwind of new found inspiration.

The Closet on the Right

I mentioned the name to David Harris Jr when he called me to invite me onto his show.  It was perfect.  He would gladly tell his followers about my new site and Facebook page.

There’s only one problem.  I don’t actually have one yet and his show is in 24 hours.  No time to eat or sleep, I need to get to work.

 

“Insomnia is my greatest inspiration.” Jon Stewart

The show went great.  I was nervous, so incredibly nervous, but it went very well.  I’m a little surprised at how positive the response has been.  People are flooding to my page and I’m still scrambling to get my site fully up and running. My new friends over at the Red Pill Pundit have been a tremendous help and the article they wrote about my video seems to be taking over the #3 spot on their trending blog list.

 

I know my video is resonating with people but I’m still in shock when people tell me how much it moved them.  Little old me.  Introverted, dog loving, Star Wars watching, political nerd, me.  A few of my friends in real life have even seen the video and commented on it in the group.  The reach is getting wider and wider.

The realization hits me like an elephant:

OH MY GOD MY FRIENDS!!! My friends are starting to see this.  I didn’t remove it from my Activity Log!  I mean, yeah I said I was “Coming Out” of my Conservative Closet on David’s show but my friends are going to see this!

 

What will they think?  Will they think I hate them? Will they hate me?  What should I do?

Screenshot of Convo

I need to talk to them and just let them know.  Whatever happens, happens.

She knows something is wrong.  I don’t ever act this way.  After some small talk about her new job and meeting Dana White ( The UFC guy), I ask her if she had heard of #WalkAway Campaign.

 

She hasn’t, which I figured would be the case.  I explain the premise of the movement and give a brief synopsis of my video.

Like me, she spent most of her life trying to live a traditional, “virtuous Christian” life that suppressed who she really was.  Like me, she didn’t come out until her 30’s.  She understands the life of living in a closet.

Tweet About Losing Friends Over Politics

“I’ve been really afraid to talk to you about this because I know you are pretty liberal with politics and I’ve seen a few of the things that you posted about the situation down at the border. I don’t know if you know but I’m pretty conservative on most things but I don’t want that to ruin our relationship.”

I let her know how much I love her and our other friend that I mentioned in the video.

At this point, I’m sobbing.  I’m waiting for the line to go dead.  Or maybe screaming?  Calm, ominous judgment?  I actually don’t know what to expect.

“Lynz. I’m not going anywhere.”

Sobbing gets MUCH WORSE.  The relief I feel can’t even be described.  And then…shame?  This was unexpected.

I’m ashamed that I actually thought one of my best friends would abandon me over politics.  I doubted the strength of my relationship and the humanity of one of the most important people in my life over something like politics.

We ended up having a really great conversation where basically she reassured me and I vented about how sad I was that our country has come to this.  She agrees.

She has to catch a flight to Seattle so I let her go.

Today:

She’s back from her trip and texts to me to see how I’m doing.  I give her a run-down of the crazy week I’ve had.

 

Great advice, from an even greater friend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Powerful #WalkAway Testimonial As The Campaign Continues To Pick Up Steam

With every passing day, the #WalkAway Campaign grows stronger. Last Saturday was no exception when a striking young woman named Lynzee Domanico posted a powerful #WalkAway testimonial chronicling her battle with being a “Closeted” conservative in the gay community.

Lynzee begins by talking about her struggles growing up in a small conservative mountain town raised by Catholic parents and how she knew at an early age that she was gay.

Lynzee goes on to share her feelings about her first marriage, to a man, that ended in divorce and recalls how liberated she felt when she found the strength to come out as a gay woman. Lynzee said she could never have imagined how her newfound power would be immediately stripped away as now she had to live as a “closeted” conservative.

She ends her powerful testimony with the fear she felt with the thought of coming out as conservative to her gay friends, and how she thought it was time to #WalkAway.

Many on the left have suggested that the #WalkAaway Campaign is a movement conceived in the Kremlin and executed by Russian bots but with authenticity like this, it’s clear the #WalkAway Campaign will continue to make some liberals rethink their blind allegiance to the Democratic party.

Welcome home Lynzee!
