So, what happened today?
Some of our Progressive friends made some rather nasty tweets about Barron Trump…because Presidential kids are off limits, but only if you’re a Democrat.
Another great hearted Progressive had an epic meltdown when Trump was sworn in. Seriously, you’ll get tears of joy just watching it.
No matter how hard any Progressive tries, they’ll never outdo this bit of virtue signalling.
Trump’s anti-ISIS statement in his speech got one Progressive really worried.
Kurt Schlichter has a kind word to say about the protestors.
Trump proposed to de-fund Planned Parenthood on the Roe anniversary.
Nancy Sinatra’s boots were made for walking all over CNN’s lies.
Sweet Meteor of Death apologized.
A guy who goes by the name of “Mad Dog” is now officially our Secretary of Defense.
With Trump, we’ve got our first President who has been in favor of gay marriage since day one in office.
All references to Climate Change were removed from the White House website as of Noon, Eastern.
Progressives were gleeful that fewer people turned out for Trump’s inaugural than Obama’s – like Hillary winning the popular vote, this is meaningless. Maybe if we gave Progressives a cookie for every time they Pretend Win, they’ll go away?
Robert Stacy McCain clears out some of the Progressive cobwebs regarding reality:
Notice how (a) the anti-Trump protests are endorsed by the rich and famous, and (b) the violence of the anti-Trump mob attacking people in D.C. is depicted as a “clash” for which the victims of mob attack are made to seem equally responsible. Also (c) the violent mob getting pepper-sprayed by police is the headline, rather than the criminal activity of the mob which provoked this police crowd-control response.
The news media and the entertainment celebrities have chosen sides, and if any Trump supporters are injured as a result of the anti-Trump mob violence, the liberal elite will say, “They deserved it.”
Bathing in Progressive tears was rather fun today – but never forget that these people will not quit. At least, they won’t quit until they are de-funded and they are forced to get jobs…
I’m quite inebriated on SJW’s tears, but I just can’t stop imbibing! I wonder what the hangover will be like. Oh right, there is no hangover: we won!
You know what was missing at the concert at the Lincoln Memorial last night? The lyrics were completely devoid of “bitches”, “hoes” “fu*k the cops,” and “kill cops.” It’s OK, though; I’m sure the Obamas will invite Beyonce and JZ to their new place.
But Spook, how will our republic survive without such vibrancy?
Rusty, the republic will survive, but those who have been trying to destroy it may not. I’m not holding my breath, just because of his crass history, but wouldn’t it be a delicious irony if a Trump Presidency ushered in a new era of civility? Talk about icing on the cake.
This is going better than expected – Trump’s inaugural speech could not have been better and the true progressive believers are in full melt down mode. Why in the world would the SJW’s destroy a Starbucks? That company has been on the leading edge of progressive issues. And today is the “some” women’s march in DC – of course pro life women’s groups were not allowed to participate, I guess that disqualifies them from being women.
MSNBC was fun to watch yesterday. Rachel Maddow at one point wondered if Trump can work with Schumer which is a great insight into the self absorbed progressive mind. Note to Rachel, thanks to your network and the last 8 years of progressive condescension and incompetence, voters have made sure that Trump does not have to work with any Democrat.
During Obama’s first two years, when Democrats held all the cards, they told Republicans to pound sand — literally said, we don’t want your input and don’t need your votes. It’s one in a long list of reasons they lost over a thousand legislative seats and governships in 2010 and 2014, and ultimately why they lost the presidency in 2016. They are always talking about taking the high road but almost always take the low road when the cameras are off. They talk about tolerance but are some of the most intolerant SOBs around when it comes to diversity of thought and speech. That said, I think the Trump administration would be well served to reach out to Democrats and ask for their input — make a big public show of it, in fact. But also make a big public show when they offer old, stale ideas that have been tried numerous times before and never succeeded in doing anything but creating more problems.
I think that (reaching out to Democrats and ask for their input) has already going on. For example, Ivanka has met with Gore and I think some other AGW alarmist. Some on the Right have had hissy fits about this, but I think it is, as you said, a good thing to do. A meeting does not mean agreement or a new policy, but it does indicate a willingness to try to find common ground.
Once a strident progressive, Piers Morgan has also grown tired of the elite progressive globalist and penned this article in support of Trump yesterday:
Amazing article coming from a Lefty. My first thought after reading it was to check Snopes or TruthorFiction to see if the article was a hoax. I wonder what he did with the real Piers Morgan.
I didn’t see the article as support for Trump as much as a challenge to him to put up or shut up, along with a swipe at Obama. But at least he met Trump halfway.
Many of the elite talking heads are describing Trump’s speech as dark, ominous and foreboding, and, truth be told, there were some parts that we just that, just as some parts of our society have truly been ravaged by progressive ideas and policies, but the majority of the speech was very positive. We watched our local news last night on the CBS affiliate, and the CBS national news came on afterward. It was like someone had dimmed the lights and put a bass filter on the TV speakers. Scott Pelly’s face was somber, and his voice was dark, ominous and foreboding as he described the events of the day surrounding the inauguration. My wife and I had the same reaction at virtually the same second, and she grabbed the remote and switched it over to Fox News where Brett Bair’s smile and upbeat voice was like a breath of fresh air.
Trump’s speech was designed for clear eyed adults and not for those who receive participation trophies. By most measures, this country is not in a good place and emotionally stable people across the country realize that and wanted to hear an adult, mature account of that fact along with a pragmatic remedy, and that is what Trump brought to the table. I personally don’t care what faux outrages or fears come from progressive circles any longer. I consider most of them to be dangerous half wits and their divisive identity politics needs to be scorned, mocked, and ridiculed at every opportunity. As I type, MSNBC is broadcasting the fears of “marginalized” minorities and oppressed women as they continue to do their best to tear apart the fabric of this country. Ironically, after getting everything they wanted for the last 8 years, they are still complaining and now blaming others for their misery. These are not Americans. These are children.
Mark called the speech “muscular”—I thought that was a good word. I thought of it as both “gritty” and “honest”. It didn’t sugarcoat the problems in this country, but laid them out as part of what he, and we, have to work on. And he said it will be hard. I liked the use of the word “carnage” and I hope it resonated with people who live in neighborhoods where gunshots are heard every night, where children have to sleep in bathtubs to protect themselves from stray bullets, where the murder rate is appalling.
As for the grimacing of some “news” people, I got tired of that a long time ago. I used to write about the Klingonesque furrowing of Diane Sawyer’s brow when she referenced some horrible Republican act or policy, as her voice dropped ominously and she did everything she could to convey horror and concern. Such deep deep concern, as she solemnly intoned the code word controversial to signal that it was time to react. (I think Botox put an end to that act.)
I hope someone is keeping video archives of all this doom and gloom, because someday (and I hope someday soon) they will form the basis of comedy routines and scathing historical accounts of the weak, panicky, disoriented Left at seeing the nation catch on to them.
Success is the great equalizer. If Trump is able to make good on his plans and inner cities see a revitalization, millions of Americans go back to work, our infrastructure improves, healthcare becomes affordable again, and our military makes advances against a truly horrific enemy, then liberals will continue to be marginalized and looked at with bewilderment. I hope that day arrives.
A step in the right direction will be a muscular, principled administration which not only has policies designed to accomplish these things but which telegraphs support for them. We have had, for eight years, an administration with a policy of denigrating the rule of law and sneering at, if not overtly attacking, those who believe in it. It has had a corrosive effect on our entire culture and society.
Trump’s speech was designed for clear eyed adults and not for those who receive participation trophies.
And when you get right down to it, that is who the Left has become — those who settle for and deserve nothing more than a participation trophy. We let them claw their way back to relevance at our own peril.
I have to laugh at those folks, particularly women, who “strongly” object to the perception of how Trump treats women, but yet voted for Mrs. Bill Clinton.
Like I said, dangerous half wits
Yes, they support Hillary and her brutal attacks on women who had done nothing but come onto the Predator-In-Chief’s radar. They don’t care that he frequents a private “pleasure” island known for having sex slaves and underage girls to entertain the perverts. Just as they defend a political system (thinly cloaked as a religion) which has among its tenets beliefs that women must be completely covered in public or at least have their hair covered, cannot leave their homes without being accompanied by a male adult relative, cannot drive, cannot have jobs, and should be stoned to death if they are raped, a system which demands “honor killings” of girls who wear Western clothes or listen to Western music or talk to boys.
They squeal about their pet “isms” such as ageism, while at the same time saying that human beings under a certain age can be torn to pieces, while able to feel pain, for the convenience of female gestators (who cannot truly be called women) who put pleasure above everything else.
They get respect only from each other, and that is a sad sick distorted mutation of real respect.
Do you think liberals will ever allow us to talk about people without identifying the category they belong too?
20 years ago there was a “million women march” on DC decrying the oppression and seeking equality and yet today they still complain all the while opposing the rhetoric and attacks on radical Islamists.
Again, dangerous half wits
I think that video of the act put on by that hag, peeking out to make sure the cameras were running before she went into her anguish and agony routine, pretty much sums up the quality of that march.
But you know, we let them get away with it. I seldom see a rebuttal of the false claim that Trump actually grabbed a woman’s genitals. I seldom see anyone point out that all he said was that when certain women throw themselves at stars the stars can do things like this and the women won’t care. As long as we cede control of the narrative to them they will have drawing power.
Do you think liberals will ever allow us to talk about people without identifying the category they belong too?
You mean like “billionaire”?
Someone mentioned last night that Chris Matthews had referred to Trump’s speech as Hitlerian. My first reaction was, so what, no one except Cluster watches Chris Matthews (heh).
The next four years are going to be a lonely time for Leftists.
LOL and I do watch Matthews and the other half wits at PMSNBC. You can’t take them seriously and it can be good comic relief
I can’t stand to watch them. Life is too short to waste on trash like that.
I keep adding to the list of people I will not pay to watch in a movie. There are stars I know are Leftists, but they are not smug self-satisfied virtue signalers, so I can look past their politics. But Streeping has gotten out of hand. I saw a blurb today about Scarlett Johansen and America Whosis speaking at the march in DC and I instantly had two thoughts—-“Who cares?” and “A couple more smug Streepers to avoid”.
On the other hand, I went to a movie this afternoon, an unusual occurrence for me, but I had read about a movie and the smug condescending reviews made me want to see it. It is “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone” and I found it thoroughly entertaining. One review sneered at it for not being funny enough—though I don’t think it strove to be a comedy—and at the same time for not being dramatic enough. Basically, it just sneered. But it is about normal everyday people in a small town in Illinois who lead normal lives and go to church, and a Hollywood spoiled brat kid actor has-been who discovers that he likes them and the life they lead as he finds faith. In other words, it did absolutely nothing to appeal to the Hollywood mentality, which is why it appealed to me.
Do these people know we are laughing at them?
Not in the least – and that Hollywood is planning a live action Barbie movie shows the level of talent they’ve got…with a few exceptions, of course.
At least it’s not another remake of a remake.
But Barbie is non-genitalized—whatever can she wear on her head? And will that make her part of the LGTBXYZ crowd? After all, who could have an easier time of switching genders than Barbie?
Given the total disintegration of the old “take us seriously” feminism, I suppose non-gender-specific Barbie is an ideal role model. I wonder if her wardrobe will be done by the storm troopers who did Beyonce’s in the last Super Bowl.
I thought Ben Shapiro summed up the women’s march today nicely:
An estimated 500,000 women marched on the nation’s capital and in cities across the country on Saturday to prove… there are, in fact, a lot of women. And they can march, or something. Also, Donald Trump is bad.
Lost among the thousands of marchers is any discernible reason for why they’re marching.
FOR REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE, DUDE!
It seems to me to be the antithesis of feminism to identify oneself by ones’ genitalia. They’ve come a long way, baby, from wanting to be respected for their brains and their ability. Clearly being taken seriously is, like, so 20th Century. Is the message “Look at me, I’m a ****”? Or “I keep my brains in my ****”?
I can’t help it—this hat thing has my brain going in a vulgar direction.
Imagine a world defined by women wearing these hats. Junior comes home from school with a black eye because he got in a fight with a kid who said his mother is a c**t, and her response is “Of course I am, darling. Didn’t you see my hat?”
I want these women to keep wearing these hats. I want to see them at the supermarket, at PTA meetings, in the boardroom. I want to see women in suits wearing walking shoes on their way to work, with their dress pumps in their handbags, wearing these hats. What a great way to instantly identify the intelligent women from the rest! We just have to look at their hats. It sure would make hiring easier.
We live in a world where we are commanded to treat people as they see themselves, so if Michael sees himself as a girl we MUST call him a her, and Michelle. So clearly, when a woman chooses to define herself by specific distinctive headwear, political correctness says we are obligated to use the correct terminology for her out of respect. It can be the one-syllable C word, the two syllable P word, or the more clinical three syllable V word, it still describes the way these women want us to see them.
So now when a coarse biker type calls a bad driver a “stupid c**t she can smile brightly back at him and say “Of course I am. See my hat?”
I’ve been going thru social media today – our Progs believe that this Day One of the New, Progressive TEA Party…but that just shows that to this day, they don’t understand why the TEA Party got started…it got started and took off like a rocket because Obama betrayed his campaign rhetoric. Remember, he was the post-partisan, post-racial national healer who would bring us all together. You and I knew that was BS, and so we voted against him in 2008…but nearly 70 million people voted for him; they believed what he said. Upon taking office, Obama started acting just like the rest of the politicians with the added “benefit” of also being nastily partisan and divisive.
These people are just doubling down on identity politics – and if they keep it up, the Democrats are going to get wiped out in 2018.
Just looked up the 1934 mid-terms…FDR’s first, when the natural political reaction should have been in favor of the GOP…well, the GOP lost 14 House seats and 10 Senate seats that year…because the GOP was still perceived as being entirely the party which had been rejected in 1932. If the Democrats are still Obama’s Party in 2018, I think it’ll play out just the same.
Of course, with many of these women, the hats are the only clue we have.
…..our Progs believe that this Day One of the New, Progressive TEA Party…..
Can’t they even get their own nickname? And just would their version of TEA stand for? Tantrums Eternally and Always? Testosterone and Estrogen disAdvantaged? Tots Emulating Adults?
Somehow I don’t see Libs marching because taxes are too high, but then they don’t always seem very clear about just WHAT they are marching for, or against. And we all know what Lib rallies are like.
I don’t think they fully realize how much we’re just laughing at them…
I think they are starting to catch on, and it is driving them crazy. I think when Trump reacted to the Dem Congresscritter boycott of his inauguration by just asking if he could have their tickets, it was a clue. The Complicit Agenda Media are trying to show some respect for the p***y hat thing, but it is so insane, they can’t possibly get away with it. I would love to see “marches” of men wearing you-know-what hats.
The snapshot of the harridan peeking out from under her eyelids to see if the cameras were rolling pretty much trashes a lot of the dramatics we saw.
It’s too bad that SNL is so liberal, because they would and could have a field day with this stuff.
Peter Daou Tweeted this:
Just like that – so we’d know how intensely he feels it…I couldn’t resist Tweeting back, “you mean like Obama’s line in Syria”….
“A line in the sand” implies an ultimatum. No,it actually IS an ultimatum. It says “If you cross this line (do this) I will then retaliate by doing that.
So what, exactly, is the ultimatum here? Elect Hillary or we will screech till your ears bleed and wear funny stupid hats? Pretend to respect our cowardice and weakness for butchering our own children or we will have temper tantrums in the street and wear funny stupid hats?
AP photo of the Trumps and Pences waving goodbye to Obamas
No further commentary required.
After watching Kellyanne Conway on MTP this morning I have realized that our fight is just beginning. Chuck Todd was absolutely hostile towards her asking her very petty, partisan questions, followed by an interview with Schumer who proceeded to attack cabinet nominees ascribing the worst “far right” intentions upon them. There will be no honeymoon and the left has definitely broadcast their intentions to fight, so here we go. We have transformed cities, counties and states over the last 9 years and now it is time to transform the media and rid ourselves of partisan progressive hacks like Todd and elevate a new breed of truly objective journalists. Si Se Puede.
Same thing happened on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace’s interview of Reince Priebus. The discussion turned to the size of the inauguration crowd, and Wallace showed a side by side aerial photo of the 2009 Obama crowd and the crowd from last Friday, noting that last Friday’s crowd had huge gaps of white space while Obama’s crowd was solid, wall to wall people. Priebus noted that the photo at the Obama inauguration was taken while Obama was speaking, and the Trump inauguration photo was not taken while Trump was speaking. The irony was that, just before the end of the show, they showed a photo taken from the Capitol steps as Trump WAS speaking, and the crowd was solid as far as you could see, calling into question their own honesty WRT the previous photo. This is a minor element in what will be a constant barrage of disinformation/misinformation by the media to delegitimize Trump’s presidency. George Bush (43) just shook off things like this. Trump will not only fight back, he will punch twice as hard. There’s little doubt in my mind as to who will win this fight.
This morning as I listen to the progressive pundits bemoan the lack of “unity” (meaning pandering to the Democrat pet causes) in Trump’s speech, I am reminded of all the speeches Obama gave where he reached out to those who oppose him and sought unity……….
Still thinking ………
Yep, I don’t remember any
Remember the one where he accused his detractors of clinging to their religion and their guns? Oh wait — never mind.
Excellent recap of inauguration protests by one of the Oath Keeper leaders on the ground.
Thanks for posting this, Spook.
Isn’t it time we stop calling these criminals “protesters”? We submit to the semantic infiltration of the Left and provide a certain level of legitimacy to these criminal actions by using the word “protest” instead of accurately defining these actions as riots. These people are, at the least, criminals, and sometimes escalate to the level of domestic terrorism.
While the actions of Oath Keepers were valiant and necessary and much appreciated, the fact is, LE should have had several hundred of their own people on the ground in exactly this way, to keep armed squads of police informed of activities. A failure to do so is a failure of leadership and should be addressed. They knew what to expect, yet they didn’t seem to expect it. Those crowds of criminals should have been so thoroughly infiltrated every move should have been reported in real time. This account told of at least one time when police were warned far enough in advance to be ready. It should have happened all the time.
And let’s stop allowing Constitutional scofflaws to hide behind a very distorted interpretation of the Constitution. No, the 1st Amendment does not guarantee the right to riot, to commit theft or vandalism, and certainly not to endanger people.
When any group is given a permit to “protest” it should have to post a sizable bond, to cover cleanup afterwards if they act like pigs, along with a list of what is and is not allowed in the name of “protest”. “Speech” is verbal or written. It should be made clear that violence will be treated as domestic terrorism, and handled as such by the police and by the courts. BTW, no bail for terrorists. I noticed that although many of these thugs are being charged with felonies, they are also being released without bail, because we all know that they are the kinds of guys who will voluntarily come back to court, right? In other words, the charges are a smoke screen so the DC police can posture as serious about crime.
Personally, I am a fan of water cannons and German opera. Blasting these morons with icy cold water and Wagner would make them rethink being where they are and doing what they do.
I would have loved to have gone and been able to report first-hand on the events, but I trust the guy who wrote the recap implicitly. It certainly could have turned out a whole lot worse in terms of disrupting the inauguration.
Heard today that the people who actually smashed things and set fires are staring at $250,000.00 fines and up to 10 years in jail…I guess our Upper Class Anarchists forgot that Obama is no longer in office. I hope it goes forward – not that I really want these guys to spend 10 years in jail (waste of taxpayer money), but I want them to face it…perhaps it will make the spoiled brats realize that this is a civilized nation.
Meanwhile, last night I commented on a Facebook post by one of my Progressive friends…that discussion is still going on. Long, long without me. I gave it up a long time ago…but one poor, Progressive guy is trying to defend himself against the charge of “mansplaining”. He’s losing – mostly because he’s acknowledging that there is such a social crime. But the really crucial take away from it is that our Progressive friends are convinced of a few things:
1. Yesterday’s marches negate the November 8th results.
2. Trump will be forced out of office.
3. In order to win, the left must triple-down on Identity Politics.
I’ve been dying to ask how they get to 218 votes in the House and 67 in the Senate to get Trump out, but I just don’t see any point in trying to engage in debate further.
On the other hand—it is a beautiful Sunday, cold but sunny with a bright blue sky, and the first Sunday of a new era in America. I know the nation still faces a lot of challenges, and the haters and morons and activists will still be trying to disrupt it, but I’d like to think we face all this with the right balance of determination not to tolerate it and determination not to let it make us miserable. I’m ready to draw a line and move forward. I feel good.
We are happy at the possibility of a new direction, and we can’t let these people dilute that. Let them screech, pound the pavement with they tiny little fisties, mourn and bellow and howl. We don’t care. They are noise. When they go farther than that, we arrest them, we put them in jail as domestic terrorists, we put Sheriff Joe in charge of their facilities, we try them, we send them to prison, and we move on.
To abortion lovers I would just say “We all know that those of you who can’t stand to lose the ability to have your living babies ripped apart and treated like garbage will still be able to do it—-it’s just that we aren’t going to pretend it is OK by calling it a “right” . And if it bothers you that your own sons and daughters can’t be parted out like old cars and sold off in pieces, too bad. It’s not up to us to make you feel less ashamed.” And then I would ignore them. There is no way we can stop these creatures from killing their babies, so we will just stop acting like it is a decent and moral thing to do, and move on. It’s as good as it is going to get till the pendulum swings a little farther, and calling abortion what it is will help that. Till then, we ignore the harpies—or laugh at them and their silly hats.
I am a firm believer that living well is the best revenge, and it is also the best response to the haters, the negatives, the howlers and the squealers. And I, for one, will read no new polls. They don’t matter. I won’t follow the Complicit Agenda Media. They don’t matter. I won’t help enrich the Streepers. They don’t matter. My life will not suffer if I choose to never see another Scarlett Johansen movie. When we start supporting movies like The Resurrection of Gavin Stone and stop paying for tickets for violent, foul-mouthed, hateful movies full of smug, self-satisfied small minded “celebrities” they will start making more movies about normal people living happy lives, and the country will be better for it.
We’re in charge. We always have been in charge, but we never acted like it. Now enough of us have been mobilized behind one cause—to stop the Democrat, International Left, juggernaut in its tracks—to start realizing that. We make the jobs, we hire the people (including the teachers), we write the paychecks, we buy the tickets, we buy the cars. Intellectuals produce ideas—we produce everything else. All we have to do is support what we believe in and not support what we don’t. It’s not complicated.
And it is a great day. As RR said, it is morning in America.
What she said!!
We’re in charge. We always have been in charge, but we never acted like it.
Now we have to set an example of how rational, intelligent, moral people act when we are in charge. That should not be hard to do, but we have to keep it in mind.
When our opposition acts like children, we treat them like children.
When they act like criminals, we treat them like criminals.
When they act like terrorists, we treat them like terrorists.
We don’t need to make this harder than it is, but we do need to keep explaining these things when challenged.
I made a comment last summer, can’t remember exactly when, but something to the effect that regardless of whether Trump won or lost, what we’re witnessing is the beginning of a political re-alignment the likes of which this country hasn’t seen in a long time, maybe ever. Now you’re starting to see a few Democrats publicly acknowledge that fact.
I caught a bit of Judge Jeanine tonight with Matt Schlapp and Dennis Kuncinich, and they were actually agreeing with each other that the Democrat Party made an egregious error in abandoning the white working class in favor of a disparate conglomeration of minorities, social misfits, radical feminists and various fringe groups whose only uniting force is a hatred of Republicans/Conservatives.
Dennis is going to find himself in a world of hurt – he’ll either have to confess his error on Identity Politics, or be forced out of the left.
I turned it on in the middle of the segment so I didn’t see the whole thing, but it didn’t seem like Dennis was all that worried about having his Progressive membership card revoked. I think the best thing we can do for Democrats at this point is hand them a shovel, and maybe buy another case of popcorn.
Their real error, which I hope they continue to misread, is not that they failed to target the “right” demographics, but that they represent a political system which has not worked, cannot work, and has brought the nation to the brink. I hope they continue to focus on their Identity Politics and confusion. So far it has worked out well for us.
So here is the level of hubris on MSNBC. Mika is lecturing the Trump administration on what they should be doing and Joe is blaming the Sean Spicer for forcing them to cover the crowd sizes at the inauguration rather than more substantive topics. So in other words, after completely misreading the electorate and getting everything wrong in the 2016 campaign Mika now feels compelled to lecture the Trump administration on how they should be going about things, and for someone who revels in being the “political watchdog”, Joe is now forced to cover topics he would rather not. And for the kicker, both of them acknowledged that the crowd size was not as important as his poll numbers which were in decline and Mika worried that Trump can not afford to lose what “small support he has left” – It’s heart warming that they care so much but I presume that the poll numbers they are referring to were the same pollsters that gave Hillary a 90% chance to win, so there is that.
Who cares about the polls? And what can a poll possibly reflect when the man has been in office for mere hours, if at all?
This whole “poll” thing is really the only weapon left in the Leftist arsenal, now that the “Hello “Kitty” ” campaign turned out to be so, well, foolish. No, make that stupid. Deeply, profoundly, stupid.
The “protests” the Left thought would be so compelling turned out to be either violent thuggish riots without the slightest element of political content or as deeply, profoundly unserious and stupid as the “Hello P***y” campaign. The entire imagery of Inauguration Day has been, on the Dem side, a montage of broken windows, bleeding heads, streets piled high with trash, silly pink hats and Michelle Obama scowling. I can’t think of a single success on the Dem side, not one, but the failures have been, as they say, epic. Literally every single thing they have tried has simply been an abject failure.
On the Republican side we had happy people acting like civilized happy people. We had a happy beautiful family proud to be representing our country. We have people happy about the direction the administration is going, with its new appointments and attitude. We had a celebration of that, and of the peaceful transition of power, in spite of the efforts of the Dems to destroy more than 200 years of tradition.
So now all they can do is frantically scramble to convince people that what they saw is not what happened, what really happened is that the country has risen up in protest out of grief and, yes, rage that Trump is our president. Well, good luck with that, Dem babies. Good luck with that. And if Dem babies want to bet their careers on following that script, more power to them. Memories are short, but videos are forever.
(Are you paying attention, Ashley Judd, et al ? No worries—we’ll be happy to remind you.)
And knowing that Progressives never tire of lecturing others on how to behave, I offer Van Jones and his prescription for conservatives:
We love the conservatives enough to tell them that they have to be better conservatives than this. You have to be better conservatives than this. Real conservatives love the Constitution. We have a president who seems to be an authoritarian. Real conservatives stand up for and believe in clean government. We have a president who seems to be committed to a kleptocracy.
Does anyone feel the love?
There was a tinge of “feeling the love” but it was quickly overwhelmed by the tsunami of feeling the hypocrisy and a little bit of feeling the urge to throw up.
Maybe Van can explain how his involvement with the Bay Area radical group Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), which was based on Marxism, qualifies him to complain about authoritarian government. We didn’t hear him criticize Obama for saying that we lost and he won, so he got to make the rules—-or when Obama ruled as a monarch from the Oval Office instead of working to get his agendas properly legislated through Congress.
He was remarkably quiet about “clean government” when Hillary Clinton was selling American influence to the highest bidder. And where were his comments on “kleptocracy” when furnishings and fittings of the White House stuck to the Clintons’ fingers when they left the White House in 2000?
Where the heck was he for the last 8 years?
Ok I am NOT making this up – Joe just said that Trump should have THANKED Obama for his service, to which Mika said – 8 years of sacrifice. SACRIFICE!
Personally, I was always impressed by the fortitude and courage shown by all the Obamas as they, their extended family and entourage (including $100,000 a year dog trainer) boarded tax-payer funded jets to embark on their forced vacations.
