Treason? Really?

July 11, 2017

Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary’s running mate in her losing campaign, actually said that Donald Trump Jr. may have committed treason by meeting with a Russian lawyer. Kaine is a windbag of foolish hyperbole and this is a perfect example of the ignorant rhetoric being spewed from the left.

First of all, Donald Trump Jr. was a private citizen at the time, not a government employee, who met with a “lawyer”, not a Russian “government official”, and all involved said nothing came from that meeting. There were no secrets or documents bandied about and there are no allegations of any type of agreements being made during that meeting.

Secondly, attempting to get dirt on Hillary is not a crime, a misdemeanor, or anything of the sort. It is just common campaign activity that Hillary and Bill (and Kaine) certainly know about. According to a Politico investigation, Ukrainian government officials were passing documents to Hillary’s campaign in an attempt to help undermine Trump’s campaign. Where is the outrage?

Thirdly, treason is a high crime and it is very rare for someone to be convicted of treason. The last person to be convicted of treason was Tomoya Kawakita, a Japanese-American sentenced to death in 1952 for tormenting American prisoners. Treason is much too serious of an offense to be thrown around indiscriminately for political purposes.

If Tim Kaine wants to accuse someone of treason, perhaps he should look to Jane Fonda. Her actions in Hanoi in 1972 during the Vietnam War fell within the parameters of being treasonous. Henry Mark Holzer’s book, “Aid and Comfort”, is a detailed study of Fonda’s actions and it clearly shows that a case for treason could be made against her.

Had Jane been a Republican or a conservative instead of a far-left liberal, it is easily conceivable that she would have been charged and convicted of treason, spending the rest of her life in prison instead of making millions and being treated as an American icon.

Tim Kaine should put at least one foot in reality. He can keep the other one is in his mouth.

Shove Your Apology

June 24, 2017

Johnny Depp, the latest idiot celebrity to spew stupid political vehemence, has offered an apology for publicly insinuating that it’s time again for an actor to assassinate a president. He can shove that apology you-know-where.

Following in the footsteps of so many other dumb Hollywood celebrities, Depp offered his asinine political opinion as if he actually knew what he was talking about. He doesn’t. He let the adoration of a crowd of fans deceive him into believing that they need to hear his political views because…well…because he’s a celebrity and everything he does or says is profound.

Finding that advocating the assassination of the president is not acceptable to those outside his bubble, he tried to walk it back with a lame apology. That falls as flat as Kathy Griffin’s semi-apology for proudly holding up a decapitated head of president Trump. Both tried to pass ignorant behavior off as a joke but with so many left-wing fanatics crossing the line into violence, there is no humor to be found.

There have been far too many self-righteous celebrities shooting off their mouths, crossing lines of civility, and then apologizing when they find it damaging to their image. There have also been far too many accepting those apologies, allowing them to get away with it. They need to be held accountable.

Sincerity is an essential element of an apology and there has been very little sincerity in apologies from celebrities crossing the line of decency. There has only been fear for their careers. Depp should shove his apology and silently suffer the consequences. Acting brought him fame and money but acting like an idiot only brings loathing and embarrassment.

Bully Puppets

February 15, 2017

Many liberal progressives have adopted bullying as their main political tactic and have become little more than puppets echoing talking points and false premises fed to them by the aggressive far-left agenda. They are oblivious to hypocrisy, irony, and reality as they allow themselves to be emotionally manipulated.

Very few can cogently explain the reasons behind their vehement protesting. Instead, many offer bumper sticker sentiments and senseless platitudes that do little more than roil their emotions. False facts, incredulous exaggerations, and calamitous projections are being used as the basis for protests that are becoming violent in nature.

Bullying, a serious concern sweeping the nation in recent years, has become a normal and advocated tactic for the far-left. Those expressing any approval whatsoever of president Trump or his administration have become targets for bullying or worse and it is treated as a proper and courageous response against all opposition. The irony, of course, is lost on the self-righteous perpetrators who are blinded by emotional turmoil.

In a very sheep-like manner, protesters are being driven into the streets over issues and concerns that they have been falsely led to believe jeopardize their very existence. This develops a sense of fear and urgency that common sense or rationality cannot penetrate. As a result, many of these protesters engage in mob behavior that brings destruction and violence.

The media cannot control its bias so they treat these “bully puppets” as simple grassroot protesters and make sure every celebrity’s political ranting is given extensive coverage. Boycotts, further attempts at bullying, are being called for against individuals, small businesses, and large corporations unwilling to join the frenzied tirade against Trump. Colleges are allowing, and often advocating, students to ban opposing views from campus and bully those who do not express hatred of Trump.

This disgusting behavior comes from those demanding inclusiveness while hypocritically labeling the silent (and peaceful) majority that elected Trump as Fascists, Nazis, sexists, racists, haters and misogynists. It is getting dangerously out-of-hand and there is little hope for a united society if these bully puppets continue raging.

Lena Dunham Apology Unacceptable

December 22, 2016

After receiving much criticism for saying “Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had” in a podcast, Lena Dunham offered an apology: “My words were spoken from a sort of ‘delusional girl’ persona I often inhabit”. Remove the word “often” from that statement and it nails Dunham well.

Recognizing that many do not like anything she says, she added: “…this apology is for the women who have placed their trust in me”. This, too, is delusional since it is doubtful many women really place much “trust” in her. She is, after all, just another celebrity pontificating on political issues and only extremely ardent fans are gullible enough to treat a celebrity as being infallible.

Far too often the adulation celebrities receive from fans convinces them that everything they do or say is exceptional. Dunham is fully engaged with taking herself too seriously, believing everyone holds her in as high esteem as she holds herself. She has become “elite”. Because she speaks before thinking far too often, her apology for this latest distasteful and offensive comment lacks credibility and, therefore, is unacceptable.

Dunham is a hardcore feminist who proudly takes her feminism to foolishly unacceptable levels, often with man-hating and racist comments. She then finds it expedient to apologize afterwards but that has become very stale. There was no regard for the emotional upheaval abortion can cause or for the life that is snuffed out in her comment. There was only anger, insensitivity, and self-righteousness.

Until Dunham learns to contain her feminist-based anger and think before speaking, her apologies will remain meaningless. So, too, will much of what she spews.

Angry White Man Blames Angry White Men

December 21, 2016

Former president Bill Clinton complained that angry white men were responsible for Hillary’s election loss. In complete denial he also blamed Comley and Russian hacking, totally ignoring Hillary’s flawed campaign or an overbearing progressive agenda. There is always something sad about an angry white man complaining about angry white men.

Those who made identity politics their entire belief system surrounded themselves only with others who were like-minded and became convinced that everyone held the same views. They cannot and will not accept the harsh reality that shattered their “dream” world so they are clinging to denial and spreading blame wherever they can.

Obsessed with racial issues, they embrace black anger along with its resultant violence while blaming white anger for Hillary’s loss. Russian hacking is their second-best culprit even though the hidden, damaging information that came from the hacking was true. Comey, treated as a hero for not prosecuting Hillary, also shares blame for not being totally partisan like everyone else in the liberal bubble – and they are desperately trying to keep that bubble intact.

There has been an embarrassing display of denial along with shameful attempts to somehow undo Trump’s election. Celebrities, out of touch with the real world, are pleading for some kind of do-over, trying to edit reality as if it were a movie. They have reneged on hollow promises to leave the country yet still believe they have credibility with the masses. It would be comical if it weren’t so sad.

Colleges are indoctrinating students on the evils of “white privilege”; the BLM movement is fomenting violence against white cops; Trump is being accused of wanting to bring back slavery; and anyone not in favor of everything Obama does is called a racist. It is no wonder that there is white anger, but it was not responsible for Hillary’s loss. She did that to herself – with a lot of help from the bubble people.

Angry white men, along with many others, voted to stop the runaway progressive agenda and identity politics that Hillary promised to continue.

Daryl Hall Gets It Right

May 16, 2016

In an interview with Salon, musician Daryl Hall (of Hall & Oates fame) responded to a left field question about “cultural appropriation”, the idea that white people should not appropriate the culture of ethnic and racial minorities. Daryl gave the interviewer a dose of rationality that cut right to the core:

“Are you trying to say that I don’t own the style of music that I grew up with and sing? I grew up with this music. It is not about being black or white. That is the most naïve attitude I’ve ever heard in my life.” When the interviewer said he agreed with him, Daryl responded: “I’m glad that you do, because anyone who says that should shut the f**k up.” Indeed.

After being told it was academia saying that, Daryl said academia was a “hotbed of idiocy”, the most accurate description anyone has ever provided. He further schooled the interviewer:

“Anyone who knows about music, about culture in general, understands that everything is much more natural. Everything is a mixture. We live in America. That’s our entire culture. Our culture is a blend. It isn’t split up into groups. Anyone who says otherwise is a fool – worse than a fool – a dangerous fool.”

In one brilliant statement, Daryl explained the nature of America’s “greatness” and one of the main reasons for the widening divide in our society. Shredding the idea of “cultural appropriation” in music, he exposed the foolishness of the entire concept and made it clear that it has gone too far.

Sane reasoning such as Daryl’s will not sit well with the unreasonable PC crowd, but it needs to be heard. The idea of “cultural appropriation” is very divisive and if left unchallenged, it will infect everything it touches and split the country to a point of no return. It is in direct opposition to the “melting pot” that built this country and could put us on a path to destruction. Sadly, that may very well be its intent.

Thank you, Daryl, for a much needed dose of reality.

A Nation of Pretense

August 26, 2015

We are being driven by a media willfully manipulating public opinion to accept an agenda that is increasingly at odds with reality. Political correctness has become more powerful than the law and unrealistic dreams are a basis for national policy decisions. Everybody pretends it isn’t so.

Hillary Clinton continues to pretend that a right wing conspiracy is responsible for her self-induced e-mail problems even as that ruse unravels further each day. President Obama and his band of incompetent negotiators are pretending that Iran is a legitimate nation acting in good faith even though it is clear to all that Iran cannot be trusted. Black community self-appointed “leaders” pretend there is across-the-board, systematic racism in the entire country’s police force that is resulting in the targeting of innocent black men.

The Pro-choice lobby pretends that a fetus is only a living being if a mother chooses to allow it to be one, a decision that can be made even after it is out of the womb. Until that decision is made, they pretend the fetus is little more than a blob to be cut up and sold for parts.

Celebrities pretend they are political pundits; The wealthy pretend they are not; The poor pretend they have a right to wealth; Liberals pretend to be tolerant; Progressives pretend to be social engineers; Environmentalists pretend alternate energy sources are efficient and economical; The Pope pretends to be a climatologist; Journalists pretend to be objective; open-border lobbyists pretend we don’t need borders; Democrats pretend Obamacare works; and Congress pretends it is competently working for the people.

Donald Trump became a top GOP presidential candidate simply because he does not pretend to be someone he is not. However, he pretends that details of his simple solutions, if they exist, are irrelevant to voters.

In 2016, too many voters will pretend they understand the issues and elect someone who will pretend to understand what needs to be done. We are a nation of pretense.

Lest We Forget

August 10, 2015

From the far-left we continually hear about the sins of this country, complete with so-called “intellectuals” labeling the US as the biggest terrorist country in the world. Lest we forget, the lowest point in this country’s history was reached through the actions of the far-left.

Though certainly a contender, slavery was not this country’s lowest point. That was a very dark era, but slavery was not invented here and it was not unique in the history of the world. It was a major factor for the Civil War, another dark era but, again, not unique in world history. What was unique, however, was the turning of citizens against other citizens serving the country in the armed forces.

The hatred and actions from the left towards Vietnam servicemen in the late 60’s and early 70’s was despicable. It is true that there were occurrences in history where citizens feared, despised, and turned against their military, but it was always due to the military’s viciousness under the direction of a repressive regime. It did not and it should not occur in a country based on democracy and freedom – but it did.

It is estimated that 2/3 of the men who served in Vietnam were volunteers and those who were drafted went because they felt it their duty to serve when called. They were not responsible for the decisions leading to the war or the planning of military operations. They were young men (the average age of an infantryman in Vietnam was 22) willing to put their lives on the line to serve their country. They earned and deserved respect, honor, and decency from their countrymen – not vilification.

One can understandably argue about the legitimacy of the war, the actions of our government, and the motivations of those making decisions. Increasing protests during that period did just that, but the far-left fomented hatred and created an opportunity to begin a “transformation” that continues to this day.

The hatred shown by the far-left towards Vietnam vets during that time was as real as it was despicable – and it was the lowest point in this country’s history. With the aid of useful idiots such as Jane Fonda, those intent on tearing down this country made that hate seem legitimate, allowing it to spread with the growing distaste for the war. Though now hidden, it still exists.

Those who served in Vietnam will never forget the depth of depravity the far-left is capable of. Everyone needs to be mindful of it during the presidential campaign when the bashing becomes loudest and the hatred is bared.

Liberal Privilege

March 23, 2015

Over at The Blaze, Matt Walsh speaks plainly and truthfully about society’s granting of privilege to liberal women. It is something most recognize but rarely speak out about for fear of the angry and vicious backlash suffered by Mr. Walsh when he dared speak against rapper Azealia Banks’ ignorant and racist diatribe against white people.

From Matt Walsh at The Blaze

In her (Azealia Banks) Playboy interview/stripping session, she spoke proudly of her hatred for white conservative men, white teenage girls, white farmers, white Middle Americans, and anything else created by or associated with white people…I wrote a piece to retort Banks and to point out her hypocrisies and prejudices…Banks took to Twitter to send me and another conservative, Wayne Dupree, a close up photo of her genitals…followed up with a lewd Tweet to my wife…All of this was applauded by her legions of young, progressive fans…I was repeatedly informed that I am the sexist, the racist, and the bigot…for me to criticize her for sending nude photos…

…the reaction would be slightly different if a white conservative male — say, a country star or something — said in an interview that he hated black Americans, then sent an unsolicited picture of his penis to a black female blogger…The double standard is so bad that it isn’t a double standard at all. For progressives — particularly women, particularly minority women — there is simply no standard to speak of…If you are progressive, and especially a woman, and especially a minority woman, you can lash out in whatever manner you like, launching whatever attacks you like, against whatever group you like, provided the victims aren’t homosexuals or liberal black people…

It’s important to underscore, however, that it’s only liberal women and minorities who wield this incredible privilege. Non-liberals in those groups have the least leeway out of everyone, and can be attacked more viciously than anyone…Liberals, particularly liberal women, are operating in a void without any standards of basic decency. They know society will allow them to say or do whatever…rules don’t apply to liberals, and even less to liberal women, and even less to liberal minority women…

An Ugly American

March 17, 2015

Hating America is so prevalent among far-left progressives that it seems to have become a requirement. The younger they are, the more vehemently they hate America because their schools were filled with America-bashing academics. Although Harlem-born Azealia Banks never finished high school, she still over-achieved in America-bashing.

In an interview with Playboy, rapper Azealia Banks proudly stated: “I hate everything about this country”. After reading more of her 23-yr-old “wisdom”, it becomes easy to hate everything about her and see her as the epitome of the “Ugly American” many have come to loathe.

She is a young, angry, bisexual, black woman spewing racist remarks while bemoaning racism in society. The hypocrisy eludes her because she is blinded by hatred and a twisted interpretation of…well…of almost everything. “I hate fat white Americans” doesn’t come across to her as anything but a proud, personal indictment of America nurtured in childhood by a mother who taught her that “white people are the devil”.

When declaring “Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America”, she reveals deep personal animosity and ignorance. She stereotypes her white fans “who got handed down your grandfather’s estate and you got to keep your grandmother’s diamonds and pearls” and claims she suffers from the “generational effects of Jim Crow”, but it is doubtful she understands the history of Jim Crow.

She says her anger comes from the discrimination she’s felt all her life in this country, but physical and verbal abuse from her mother that forced her to leave home at the age of 14 may be the real culprit. One could almost feel sorry for her but it is hard to do so when she gladly wallows in her ignorance and spits rage in your face gleefully. She only wants to piss you off and in that, she is highly successful.

She angrily declares “As long as I have my money, I’m getting the f— out of here” but, unfortunately, she is still here – just like all the far-left liberals who were going to leave if Bush got elected. Maybe if we all chipped in for plane tickets…
