Let me be as clear as I can possibly be… what happened yesterday was a terrorist attack. White supremacists are scumbags. So are black supremacists, brown supremacists and Asian supremacists. Any person that traffics in ideas that believes that their race is superior to others or calls for the annihilation of another person’s group based solely on race is a scumbag. Using political violence to intimidate and silence the opposition is disgusting and un-American.
The problem with painting these formerly reasonable positions as the extremist viewpoint is it becomes an unjust character attack and ensures that no further debate can occur. The Left has simplified the debate into a binary choice… you either agree with them or you are a Nazi. This politically expedient argument has left many who consider themselves a Classical Liberal behind as media and politicians abandon long held positions to go chasing after the votes and money of the very vocal minority in the base that has careened very far to the Left recently.
This overreaction by the media, Democrats and Hollywood elite in a grand irony does not erode the President’s support from the base as intended, but has the exact opposite effect as many supporters then move to defend the President from the hyperbolic screeching. While many of us disagree with the President on many issues, it is difficult to express those disagreements because the Leftist hysteria always seems one degree worse. When the President makes a mistake, the media in an attempt to capitalize on this then overreaches and finds themselves the victim of the Trumperang Effect.
The only way that the millennial can avoid cognitive dissonance between what they learned from academia and their experience is through an elaborate process of confirmation bias where they begin painting innocuous statements and actions with the board brush of white nationalism. In the last year alone I have seen articles arguing that the following things are racist; Pokeman Go, historically accurate films like Dunkirk, the “truth”, a green cartoon frog, the “OK” symbol, prioritizing national security, standing for the national anthem, making any other argument for immigration reform that is not based on open borders, believing that the government should be smaller, displaying the American flag, basically disagreeing with any Leftist argument and milk.
There can be no clearer dichotomy that represents the Regressive Left’s mind then when they wax poetic about the value of diversity and predictably react in a totalitarian fashion when faced with intellectual diversity. Google’s recent firing of an employee who expressed a dissenting opinion in a 10 page memo that went viral, ironically on the lack of tolerance for intellectual diversity, should frighten Americans not only because this is an American Corporation, but one that serves as a gateway to the internet where millions go to find information, news and to express our views.
While I feel much of the scorn that we heap upon these collegiate children is duly deserved for their continuous screeching and asinine new way Fascist positions on free speech, we must not forget to save some for the professors. These wannabe intellectuals that haunt these Leftist indoctrination centers who have forgotten that their job is to prepare students, much like University of Georgia’s own Dr. Richard Watson who as reported by Campus Reform is now allowing students to select their grades if they feel stressed by the one that they earned.
I make a point of every day forcing myself to face the vitriol and hate to peer into the Liberal Media bubble. When I do I am looking for signs of hope or any indication that at some point that they are going to step back from the ledge and do some honest reporting for a change. It is days like today when I watch pundits on CNN saying that you get Venezuela “when you have Donald Trump without James Madison” that hope almost disappears.
Wow Senator Feinstein you certainly make a compelling case… if only she had not misrepresented the facts. Her position is that trimming back the amount of immigration would cripple the agricultural industry, but per the US Department of Agriculture, “The average number of hired farmworkers has steadily declined over the last century, from roughly 3.4 million to just over 1 million.” This number has held steady over the last decade thanks in large part to modernization and automation…
The immigration system should not be used as a recruitment tool to gain political power as we have seen from the Democrats, nor should it be a way to import cheap labor to drive down wages of Americans as we have seen from Rinos. The true purpose of American immigration is to bring the best and brightest from around the world to make America a better place. Simply importing the poor from around the world to our shores who do not speak the language, have no available means with which to support themselves and who have no intention of integrating into our great society places an unnecessary burden on Americans who are already struggling to achieve the American dream.
Dear Jeff Flake – There is No Such Thing as a Globalist, Neocron, Big Government, Open Borders Advocating Conservative
Jeff Flake’s new book is not even out and I already hate it. In most cases, a Rino writing a book ahead of a reelection campaign would have drawn zero reaction from me. However, Jeff Flake who has always been a moderate, who leans either left or right with the frequency of a weathervane, trying to speak on behalf of Conservatives is laughable and insulting.
