Profiling & Spin From the Left

November 6, 2017

The Left has a myopic view of profiling much like it has with almost everything. They consider profiling to be discriminatory and sometimes downright evil but it is overlooked or rationalized when they engage in it. They don’t believe they profile but actions tell a different story.

White males are profiled and demeaned by the Left and current complaints of “white privilege” take it even further to include all white people. Black Republicans are profiled as traitors to their race and women Republicans are profiled as traitors to women. Trump voters are profiled as dumb, ignorant racists; rioters in the street are profiled as social justice warriors; the rich are profiled as heartless, Christians are profiled as white supremacists; and illegal immigrants are profiled as ordinary immigrants.

There is no limit to the spin the Left will use to frame issues. Facts are ignored, news stories are manufactured, and words are re-defined. Thus, racism exists only in white people; illegal immigrants are undocumented workers; killing a fetus is pro-life; climate change means man-made global warming; comprehensive immigration reform is nothing but amnesty; free speech means shutting down opposing views; and voter ID is suppression.

Rights are even created to further the leftist agenda. Health care, banning opposition speech, free college education, birth control, and destructive civil disobedience have all been claimed to be “rights”. Meanwhile, our basic right to free speech has been deemed valid only for leftist views and all else is considered “hate speech”.

Rational debate has been replaced with hateful and personal attacks making it impossible to move forward or find compromise on issues. Washington has become ineffective because of categorical resistance from Democrats toward president Trump and his administration. False accusations and continuous calls for investigations keep elected officials from governing and hate is openly expressed toward the president.

This is a mess and people are finally getting tired of it. The country is suffering and the Left is losing respect, credibility, and relevance but they continue to ignore their self-inflicted demise. It needs to stop.

Deceptive Progressive Hype

March 30, 2015

Once again, we find progressives and the liberal media intentionally misleading the public. The current hype and furor over Indiana’s “Religious Freedom Law” is the latest in a long history of deliberate deception used to sway public opinion.

Indiana’s law simply says that no one can be forced to do something that is against their religion unless the state has a “compelling interest” to do so – and if one is compelled, the issue can be taken to the courts for a decision. This is not discriminatory or anti-gay. It just reaffirms one’s freedom of religion and it is very similar to laws already in place in 30 other states.

This law, like many other laws, could be misinterpreted and wrongly used in a discriminatory manner by nefarious individuals, but it is not discriminatory by itself and allows legal action to be taken if it used in that manner. Progressives know this but are deliberately misinterpreting the law to advance their agenda.

Unfortunately, this is a proven progressive tactic. It conditioned much of the public into believing decriminalization of marijuana is the same as legalization. It caused many to believe there really is a “war on women” and the police are all racists. It made immigration reform synonymous with amnesty and it convinced many that “access” to health insurance never existed for those unwilling to pay for it.

It is now trying to convince us that: Hillary did nothing wrong by erasing emails; Iran can be trusted with a nuclear program; Israel is the problem in the Middle East; Obama’s foreign policies have been successful; Obamacare is working well; Voter ID is voter suppression; and the economy is in great shape.

It is all liberal hype and it only works because both the White House and the mainstream media push it, repeating the hype over and over again until it becomes “fact”. It is nothing short of systematic brainwashing – the same brainwashing we saw in repressive countries and thought could never happen here.

If people continue voting to make history, hype will be all there is.

Holder To Monitor Polls

November 4, 2014

A recent video filmed in North Carolina from James O’Keefe, president of the Project Veritas Action Group, showed that states requiring no ID for voting provide an easy opportunity for fraudulent voting on a massive scale.

Colorado’s new election system allows voting by mail, same-day registration, ballots sent to every registered voter (who may not have voted in years), and “ballot harvesting” where one individual can collect the ballots of up to 10 people and drop them off. There is no way of monitoring that 10-ballot drop-off or the many other flaws in the system.

Voting machines in Illinois and Maryland have been found with what has been called a “calibration issue” that electronically switched votes for Republicans over to Democrats. Florida is on the look-out to prevent absentee ballot fraud which has plagued the state in recent years. A man in New Mexico tried to vote and found that an imposter had already voted in his place.

These are just some of the known voting issues defying the left’s claim that voter fraud is non-existent, yet, they scream that voter ID is voter suppression with no proof at all. One can guess what they would scream if those voting machines in Illinois and Maryland were switching Democrat votes to Republicans.

Not to worry, though, because U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is sending poll monitors to 18 states to be on the look-out for…race-based discrimination. He didn’t find it in Philadelphia when members of the Black Panthers carrying nightsticks were intimidating voters at the polls in 2008, but he’ll keep looking until he does find it – because he “believes” it’s there.

Holder is stuck on race and has turned the entire Justice Department into a race-based organization. He believes that voter ID laws are racist even though ID is required for almost everything, including attendance at an NAACP rally. He doesn’t recognize how demeaning it is to treat the black community incapable of obtaining an ID. He should have been gone long ago.

Myth Busting

October 2, 2014

Many believe progressive left-wingers hate Ann Coulter because she is an outspoken conservative, but the real reason is because she uses facts to disprove religious-like beliefs they blindly follow. Her latest column will once again cause outrage because she shows a few more “beliefs” to be nothing more than myths.

Coulter rips apart a meme based on a study saying “the purchase of a handgun was associated with 2.4 times the risk of being murdered and 6.8 times the risk of suicide”. No, it is not true and neither is the belief that emergency room admissions for domestic violence spike on Super Bowl Sundays, an oft-heard feminist mantra. Coulter shows these to be nothing more than convenient falsehoods used to help advance an agenda.

Another myth currently making the rounds due to the recent White House crasher is that Obama gets more threats than any other president (because he is black). Coulter uses facts to disprove that, too, adding the inconvenient and politically incorrect truth that those “most likely to assassinate a president are leftists, socialists, communists, Palestinian activists, crazed environmentalists and communitarians”.

Those upset with Coulter because of this column will undoubtedly use insults and demeaning names to ridicule her. They will not counter with facts because there are none backing up these “beliefs”. Name-calling is their standard retort.

The progressive left’s agenda is filled with myths: Democrats freed the slaves; there is a war on women; Republicans are racist and have no compassion; liberals are tolerant; the rich hate the poor; man-made global warming is a fact; voter ID means voter suppression; a fetus is not a living being; pro-life is anti-women; all religions are the same; the economy is doing well; Obama has superior intelligence; etc. etc.

It seems much of the left’s progressive agenda is based on what they believe “should be” and reality just gets in the way. Ann Coulter excels at delivering reality – and rubbing their noses in it.

Give ‘em hell, Ann.

Racist Victimization

May 6, 2014

Liberalism depends on the manipulation of emotions for political gain and it uses victims to tap into those emotions. Racism supplies victims and liberal exploitation of racism has harmed minority communities and fomented civil unrest throughout the country.

Treating people as victims not responsible for what they do is an insult, but this type of condescension brings dependency and, more poignantly, votes. Most in Black, Latino, and Hispanic communities oppose abortion, support traditional marriage, favor school choice, and agree with many conservative views, but “community leaders” and liberal elites ignore this.

For example, 70% of black voters supported California’s Proposition 8 defining marriage as a union between one man and one woman but the arrogant liberal establishment called them homophobes and bigots, considering it a betrayal. In the same way, successful black conservatives such as Clarence Thomas and Condoleezza Rice are called “race traitors”, “Uncle Toms”, or much worse because they don’t toe the established liberal line.

This insistence on conformity is racist. In the past, white racists wanted blacks kept “in their place” and today’s liberal elites insist that their place is the Democratic Party. There is little difference. Years of this have conditioned many to mirror the liberal establishment’s idea of what an African-American should be. Thus, we find some treating those among them striving for achievement as “sellouts” who are acting white. The Hispanic and Latino communities are now being molded in a similar manner.

Martin Luther King’s dream of a colorblind society is a threat to today’s liberal elites. The race card is often the only card they hold on many issues and it is ignorantly brought out at every opportunity as a show-stopper. Voter ID, illegal immigration, deficit reduction, minimum wage, unemployment, abortion, and even global warming are seen as racial issues. Absurdly, even a dislike of Mexican food is being considered racist by some.

These communities deserve more than to be treated as victims. Until that occurs, this country will remain polarized, mired in racism, and unable to move forward.
