I lost a friend over politics yesterday. Truth be known, it was a long time coming. I had just held back as this person went ever more into the insane leftist ideology. But, yesterday, this person posted a “If you support Trump, you’re a racist” meme and I noted that, hey, this means you’re calling me a racist. The conversation went downhill from there until the “unfriend” button was clicked and that was that.
I don’t care.
You see, I’m tired of being insulted. I do know my Christian duty: to love those who hate me and pray for those who despise me. And, as best I can, I try to live up to that and with God’s grace, I’ll get better at it. But I just can’t stand being insulted any longer – especially as the insults are all damnable lies. I’m not a racist. I’m not a sexist. I’m not a homophobe. I’m not anti-immigrant. I’m not a fascist. I’m not a Nazi. But I’ve been called all of these things, over and over again, for decades. It is past time to call a halt – and the only way I can do that is to vigorously push back whenever someone issues a slander about me.
Of course, the full blown leftist out there will vigorously assert I am all those things but that I don’t realize that I am. And that’s fine: you can believe whatever bullsh** you want – but because you believe something monumentally stupid it does not follow that I have to meekly accept insults. You insult me, and I will call you out on it. Don’t want to be my friend any more? That’s your business. I won’t be insulted. Not any more; I’ve had enough.
Shame we can’t reply to this honestly without the fear of being suspended from both facebook and twitter.
Being suspended from twitter and facebook could be the best thing to ever happen to you. They are nothing but sewers of toxicity.
As far as memes go, I like the one that says “if you are so bone-deep stupid you actually think that believing in a Constitutional government is racist you are too stupid to bother with”.
The “racist” accusation has rolled of me like water off a duck’s back for several years. It’s like the boy who cried wolf. I don’t do facebook and twitter, and I generally don’t associate with people who would call me the kinds of things you’ve been called. It helps that I live in a solid red area where the Liberals are generally not outspoken, and the few who are are the ones who are the subject of ridicule and derision. Our state has a nearly $2-1/2 billion rainy day fund and ended the last year with nearly a $half billion surplus. Unemployment is below the national average; property taxes, income taxes and the cost of living are low and life is good.
Mark, that is what I call addition by subtraction. You are better off. I don’t have a twitter account or an instagram account and only have a facebook business page because in my industry it’s almost required but other than that I think social media is toxic. It gives the feeling of being “connected” but that’s an illusion. One of my favorite comedians has a bit where he says “remember when we use to just have acquaintances? You know Joe who works at the store and you both like the same football team. You say hi to Joe when you’re there, talk football then leave. Joe’s a nice guy. But then you see he belongs to KKK on facebook?? I don’t want to know that much about Joe. I just want an acquaintance!! I want more acquaintances! I know too much about other people now!!!”
So Epstein will remain in jail and stand trial (assuming he is not killed in prison). Katy bar the door. Epstein will do to Washington DC what Harvey Weinstein did to Hollywood and both of them are huge Democrat donors. There will definitely be some high profile road kill.
Trump has been cleared of “hush money” payoffs by the courts but not by MSNBC. Honestly if these current crop of progressives ever get total power we are f***ked. Joey Scarborough just spent the last segment trying and convicting Trump all by himself and wants to throw him in prison andI have no doubt he would if he could. Just like when that bitch Omar ignored the Mueller report and convicted Trump of collusion at the podium the other night. This is who they are.
I think it significant that the Left has had to go back to the “hush money” meme—it is basically an admission that nothing else has gotten any traction, so they might as well try to revive this to see if it will.
It might be time to have a show, like Hannity’s with a couple of the Clinton victims on, and ask them if they would have preferred to be given a six figure apology and shut up money to being publicly savaged, slandered, libeled and attacked on a deeply personal level to try to discredit them.
The contrast between the treatment of the unwilling victims of a serial sexual predator and the willing adult participants in consensual activities is stunning, and I think it should be played up–for a couple of reasons. One, of course, to point out the absolute stupidity of the effort to make the Trump payments seem more meaningful than they were, one to take advantage of yet another chance to point out the deep and pervasive corruption and despicable nature of the Clintons as they ruthlessly left damaged lives in their wake, and one to let the Left know that when they strike they will be opening up the gates to massive and painful retaliation that will showcase their evilness.
Which reminds me—this is when we should revisit the Congressional hush fund, which used TAXPAYER DOLLARS to pay off people for not talking about what our elected officials did to them, and name names. Name as many people as possible whose misdeeds were covered up by the illegal use of government funds.
Make them hurt. And for every name named, be sure to make a very big point that this is only being brought out because of the actions of –and name the people who are trying to revive this. Make sure that they are the ones blamed for the decision to exhume this scandal. But it is clearly time to dig this up and put it on display.
…. the deep and pervasive corruption and despicable nature of the Clintons as they ruthlessly left damaged lives in their wake, and one to let the Left know that when they strike they will be opening up the gates to massive and painful retaliation that will showcase their evilness.
The Clinton’s are wholly despicable and unworthy people and I do hope Bill gets what he deserves as the Epstein saga unfolds.
You are right about how we should fight back. If the gloves aren’t off now, they should be. The left (media and Democrats) seem to think that they alone know what is best for this country and are not relenting so our next course of action is force.
In my opinion and the opinion of many others, the Democrat party is completely unAmerican. I was offended the other day when bitch Omar said that “she probably loves this country more than natural born citizens” – really? What has she contributed to this country other than bitch and moan about it? I have been working, paying taxes, and helping my community longer than she has been alive and yet the little rag headed bitch says that she is probably “more American” – F**K YOU.
Go back to where you came from honey. No one wants you.
I read there’s an investigation underway that could lead to her being deported. There are several things that could push for that possibility.
“First it has been claimed that Omar committed marriage fraud—which puts her on the wrong side of the 1986 Immigration Act.
These allegations surfaced during her 2018 Congressional campaign when an anonymous post on an online message board for the Somali community claimed Ahmed Nur Said Elmi – whom Omar had supposedly been married to – was really her brother.
This in turn proports that she also committed tax fraud by filing married joint tax returns to obtain favorable tax advantage that she was not legally allowed.
Second, supposedly Omar was living in Kenya when she was granted citizenship.
This runs afoul of immigration law because Omar resided in “the resort city of Mombasa, Kenya, famous for its magnificent beaches on the Indian Ocean, and a magnet for wealthy tourists from Europe and around the world,” and not in Somalia where she had a credible claim to living in a dangerous environment.
Third, it has been argued that Omar’s association with alleged terrorist-connected groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America raise questions about her “support for terror.”
Forth, it has also been suggested that she may have entered the United States as a refugee under a false name. If proven beyond a reasonable doubt, that charge could lead to revocation of her citizenship and deportation to Somalia for entering the country under false premises.
I’m guessing there are other things that would surface if investigated and one of the reasons Trump was quick to back off from the “Send her back” chant at the recent NC rally, so as not giving the appearance of interfering with any investigation. It is yet to be determined if she committed any crimes that would initiate her deportation, but I sure hope this does not disappear without answers and/or end with a slap on the wrist if found guilty.
Without question these 4 whack-job congress critters are a thorn in the side for both the democrat party and the American people. Finally, we have a President who takes steps to push back and put the left on the defense.
Consider this statement by President of Mexico:
The Mexican president said at his regular morning conference that sentences like the one for El Chapo – ‘a sentence for life in a hostile jail, hard, inhumane’ – made a life no longer worth living.
What should be pointed out to this loser is that many of his own citizens live every day in far worse conditions. And what about the thousands of innocent Mexicans that Chapo killed?? I wonder if he has considered them at all?
Also MSNBC is covering the “hush money” story as if Trump is guilty as hell and should be in prison if only the courts and prosecutors would have done their job.
We are swimming in a sea of dishonest and stupid people …. who are definitely not worth being friends with on Facebook LOL
Everyone wants to ignore the “then come back and show us how it’s done” sentence in Trump’s tweet. Would a racist invite them back? MSNBC displays the tweet all the time with only the “go back home” words highlighted which proceed the next line “then come back”
Is everyone really this stupid and overly sensitive? It’s a shame.
Is everyone on the Left really this stupid and overly sensitive?
The Left always manipulates words to influence its brain-dead sheeple.
So when Trump was talking about women who made themselves available to him because he was a “star” and then went on to say that when this happens (a thought interrupted by sniveling Billy Bush prattling on as if he, too, received this kind of attention) a man could grab such a woman by the genitals and she wouldn’t care, the Complicit Agenda Media took it out of context and claimed he had “bragged” about grabbing women by the genitals.
(When I asked my Lib cousin if she believed Trump had admitted to grabbing a woman by the p***y she said yes, looking surprised that I would ask. I asked her why she believed that, and she said because she heard him say so. When I told her about the comment leading up to that comment, which completely changed the entire meaning, she looked puzzled and said “why haven’t I heard that?” and I said “because you just accept what you’re told because it fits with what you want to believe, and you are too lazy to do any research on your own to see if you are being lied to. It’s right there in the transcript, for anyone to see if she wants to know the truth instead of just accepting whatever feeds the hate.”)
Anyway, this is what the Left does. They edit whatever would make a statement mean something other than what feeds their narrative, knowing their base is too lazy to check into anything for themselves or too invested in the hate to care. We saw it in the comments at Charlottesville. We will see it in every single alleged quote from Trump which puts him in a bad light. And they redefine terms.
The broad term for what they do is “lie”. They invent new definitions, such as for racism, for sexism, for hate, for socialism, etc. They edit statements to make them appear to say what they never said. And they flat-out invent scenarios which they then publish, repeat, and insert into every possible statement or event.
The stupid will just believe it. The malignant will know what was done but will defend it, and amplify the lies to try to keep the false narrative afloat.
Since January 2019, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has delivered more than 6,000,000 meals, performed around 400,000 medical health interviews, and conducted over 80,000 medical assessments for migrants in Customs and Border Protection custody, McALeenan said.
Furthermore, agents have delivered more than 21,000 sick or injured migrants to hospitals this year, and have “conducted medical transportation or stood hospital watch for over a quarter million hours.” There are now more than 200 medical professionals working at various border facilities who screen migrants upon their detention.
Now let’s ask the Democrat Governor of California how many resources he has deployed to take care of the homeless in his state.
Fair question, right? Illegal immigrants are receiving much better treatment from our government, and certainly a hell of a lot more concern from Democrats than our own citizens are, and yet to Democrats – it’s still not enough.
Jordan touched on the responsibility of those whose actions and policies have enticed people to take risks and expose themselves to detention if not death by making it appear that it is safe and easy to cross our border illegally.
I’d ramp that up, to a full-throated roar, openly and repeatedly putting the blame for every death, every example of misery associated with detention, every separation of family members, squarely on the shoulders of those who have refused to pass and enforce laws that discourage efforts to cross our borders illegally. I’d mount a major onslaught, on all fronts, pointing out that enticing people to take potentially lethal risks is profoundly immoral, that doing so for political reasons is even more so, and that following this up with hypocritical attacks on the only party trying to address the humanitarian crisis these people have callously created is such a vile and dishonest tactic it should be treated with the contempt it deserves.
Slam them. Hit them hard. Cite the thousands of corpses found in the desert north of the border. Cite the figures about how many women are raped as they try to cross Mexico to get to the border, and how many women end up in the sex trafficking industry because they are so vulnerable. Cite the figures of abandoned children left to fend for themselves on the America side of the border, and the estimates of how many end up in the sex slave trade.
Don’t hide from the horrors—-lay them out, in detail, and place every single one of them on the shoulders of those who not only fail to fix the real problems but who actually encourage people to take these risks. Just as the driver of the getaway car in a bank robbery is guilty of murder if one of the robbers in the bank kills someone, even if he didn’t know it was going to happen, every person whose votes, whose public announcements, whose efforts in any way have led to the perception of people that it is a good idea to try to cross our southern border illegally is responsible for every single bad thing that happens to the people who believed them.
And NAME THEM. Name the Hollywood virtue signalers whose public pronouncements have sent the message that there is powerful support for anyone who crosses our border illegally. NAME the governors, mayors, police chiefs who not only interfere with immigration enforcement but in doing so offer the illusion of safety to people willing to take the risks to get to their cities and states. NAME the legislators whose votes have led to the perception that we lack the willingness or ability to control who comes into the country—from either party.
I am sick and tired of lack of accountability and I am sick and tired of the Right being so wimpy,. so fearful, that we are always on the back foot backing away from conflict while the Left pushes and pushes at us.
The crisis at the border needs to be identified, not in terms of what it is like to be there but in terms of why those people are there in the first place.
That is really well said. You should figure out some way to get what you’ve written here to Brad Pascale, Trump’s 2020 campaign chairman.
I agree with Spook.
LET’S ENGAGE IN THIS FIGHT. OUR COUNTRY AND OUR CHILDREN NEED US TOO
Spook, I have wasted a lot of time the past few years trying to figure out how to reach people in government.
I was really excited when Cory Gardner got elected, but he is so isolated it is impossible to reach him. I have sent several emails and all have gotten exactly the same canned response, and when I sent another pointing out that his staff are doing him a huge disservice by doing this I got exactly the same canned response. I have no idea how to send anything to Pascale or to the strategy chief or, basically, anyone.
You can reach anyone in government if you are sending money, but otherwise no one wants to hear from you. When I lived in Wyoming I wrote to a Senator and got an actual, personal, response, but that Senator died. I moved back to Colorado and don’t know if either of the Wyoming Senators is accessible now.
Talk about the chickens coming home to roost.
… Unionized campaign organizers working for Sen. Bernie Sanders’s presidential effort are battling with its management, arguing that the compensation and treatment they are receiving does not meet the standards Sanders espouses in his rhetoric
When does any issue espoused by liberals meet the expected standards?
Elijah Cummins is a complete piece of sh*t. Did you see him yell at the DHS secretary yesterday lecturing him on the conditions at the border?? This comes after Elijah spent the better part of this year claiming that the crisis was manufactured, AND comes from someone who represents Baltimore.
Tell me Elijah, what have you done lately to address homelessness, poverty, and crime in your own district?
Baltimore has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes – from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One’s chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 14.
Elijah should focus on his own district. There are quite few problems there to take care of. And why doesn’t any conservative point this out? Why are we not asking Nancy Pelosi what she’s doing to stop people from defecating on the street in her district? I want someone to ask that question.
Why are we not asking Nancy Pelosi what she’s doing to stop people from defecating on the street in her district?
I’ll bet if some enterprising individual scooped up all the poop and dumped it in Nan’s front yard it would get her attention.
I have a gut feeling that the gloves are going to come off this election cycle like never before.
I worry less about the nasties prior to the election than the nasties after the election, especially related to voter fraud. My hope is that there is such a landslide win for Trump and a return of the House to the right with real constitutional congress critters along with gains in the Senate that there is little the left can do to advance their propaganda. Add to that, loss of subscriptions and viewership to leftist media such that they are forced to lay off significant employees and / or close, elimination of all tax payer funds to any abortion institution, recognition of life at conception, rebuilding the judiciary especially the higher court positions with constitutional minded judges, elimination of tax payer funds to colleges and universities that undermine the rights granted to its students by the constitution, and a return to true freedom of speech, firearms, and religious liberties.
We never ask any of the right questions. For example, I would like to ask Nancy (and Elijah, as well) “When you ran for office, were you honest enough to admit that if elected you would represent a radical political agenda and not the people who voted for you?” That would be a good lead-in to questions about what each elected official is actually doing for his or her constituency. “Are you doing more for the people who elected you by grandstanding for the cameras and trying to overturn an election than by addressing the issues that make your city such a horrible and dangerous place to live? If your campaign to unseat a duly elected president were to be successful, how would that make your city more cleaner, safer or a better place to live and work?”
Better yet, “Isn’t your relentless campaign against the president really just an effort to shift attention away from the fact that you have a history of ignoring the people who voted for you because your real allegiance is not to them but to a political structure that is in direct opposition to our Constitution?”
Come ON, conservatives! It’s not that hard!
“Representative (fill in the blank) you claim that US border detention centers are concentration camps. Can you give us any examples of any other concentration camps, for example in the past hundred years, in any country?”
“Thank you. Now can tell us how many of those other camps have ever let any of those held there simply ask to be able to go home, and be released to do that?”
“Would you vote to authorize federal funding of transportation to help these people get back home if they asked to be released from detention?”
The NYT, evidently concerned that we might forget how much it hates America, posted this:
America may have put the first man on the moon, but the Soviet Union sent the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the U.S. would follow suit
Funny how they didn’t mention that the Soviet Union also sent a dog into space to suffer and die alone there. But they did do a great job of reminding us that to the Left, it is all, always, about identity.
How about if we just send Whoopi Goldberg?
Actor Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) was accused of being a white supremacist for wearing a T-shirt with the Gadsden flag superimposed over the American flag. The couple that owns the company that produces the shirt was interviewed on Fox and Friends this morning. They said they weren’t going to pull a Nike. Instead they’re going to reissue the shirt. As I said in a previous post, I think this is the year that Conservatives begin to fight back.
BTW, I own a similar T-shirt — one of my favorites. Never been called a white supremacist while wearing it.
I wear my Trump 2020 T shirt a lot and really like to watch the reactions I get. I feel sorry for the first liberal to give me grief because I am in no mood ….
Hey white people … here’s your daily MSNBC lecture
I don’t watch MSNBC so I don’t know who the guy speaking is, but he’s clearly nuts. In parts of his rant I thought he was talking about Obama (acting above the law, getting your party to march in lockstep with you, acting against your own economic self interest for the greater good, etc.). And persecution of Jews? If there is ever a persecution of the Jews in this country it will be by the Left, not Donald Trump.
I’ve read a number of articles that warn Conservative not to wish for a civil war with the Left. Without a doubt It would be ugly, but it’s still fun to fantasize.
That’s Donny Deutsch. He’s a real piece of work. I don’t think progressives really understand how fed up we are and how close they are to danger … they keep pushing and pushing and it wont turn out well for them if they keep it up. They truly don’t understand who real Americans are. We are congenial, forgiving, tolerant, and inclusive … up to a point and we are real close to that point
You know what’s funny to think about and I wish conservatives would bring this up but Trump, through Trump organization employment has done more for minority families than any of his critics who label him racist. In fact I would say that Tump has economically helped more minority families than all of his critics combined. Additionally, Trump was the first President to sign criminal justice reform which has already been a positive impact on many minorities.
So from now on, ask those people who call Trump a racist, what they have personally done to help a minority family.
The oath of office for the House of Representatives:
“I _____________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
