The Week in Radical Leftism, 3/09/2018

By 11 Comments

Welcome back everybody! Leftist crazy never sleeps and neither do we!

03/01 – Why Did It Take Two Weeks To Discover Parkland Students’ Astroturfing?

This post isn’t as inflammatory as its title suggests, but an interesting look at how the sausage gets made. It’s also something our side needs to step up and do more of, and yes that includes your faithful blogger.



3/1 – Philadelphia Soda Tax Fizzles, Brings in $13 Million Less Than Expected

Radical Left policy checklist:

1) Ideas founded in economic illiteracy? Check!
2) Policy will disproportionately hurt the poor? Check!
3) Ultimately fails? Check and check!

3/1 – Facebook Threatens Satire Site Babylon Bee over CNN Story That Snopes Rated ‘False’

Nothing screams panic like when The Radical Left needs to do their always “professional” job of fact checking satire sites.

3/3 – White Customers Asked To Pay More At New Orleans Restaurant

This week’s edition of “Your best bigotry comes from The Radical Left”

3/3 – POLITICO: Those Damned Republicans Are “Seizing on” the Issue of the Coward County Sheriff

And there’s nothing Big Media hates these days more than a story that distracts attention from how (they believe) guns and guns alone are solely responsible for the Florida school shooting.

3/3 – Venezuela has achieved economic equality

Everybody is a millionaire! And as I like to point out, this is our latest reminder that our country was one rigged Democratic Primary away from half of the country voting to turn America into Venezuela – Part I

3/3 – Sweden: Woman faces two years in prison for making jokes about Islam

…And American Leftists weep with envy

3/3 – Italy fed up with migrant invasion

Between this and the next story I like to think that there may still be hope for Europe

3/4 – Merkel Acknowledges Germany ‘No-Go Areas’; Longtime U.S. Media Deniers Hardest Hit

Better late than never that our moral and intellectual superiors start deciding that we can handle the truth

3/5 – Dreamers Turn on Dems, Block Entrance to DNC: ‘Too Many Years, Too Many Lies!’

Paging Doctor Frankenstein!

3/5 – Hollywood Contemplates Looking in the Mirror, Then Turns Away

Hollywood’s brightest stars came together as one and told us they had stood up to something bad — but never quite defined — and assured us that everything was different now. It was a powerful night for vague euphemisms.

Elsewhere, the founder of #MeToo talked about her desire to work with gun-control activists, demonstrating that the movement is quickly mutating from a broad-based coalition in support of an unassailable cause — stop harassment and assault — into garden-variety progressive leftism.

I wish they had just let Rose McGowan come out and yell at everyone for ten minutes.

3/5 – Kimmel: We Make Films ‘To Upset Mike Pence.’ That’s True, And It’s An Important Admission.

Actually, most normal people are a little bit uncomfortable with movies glorifying pedophelia and bestiality

3/6 – Liberals Are Fine With Teens Rearranging The Constitution, But Don’t Trust Them With Guns

Yes kids, you might want  to look up the name “Cindy Sheehan.” It’s a short ride.

3/6 – Guess Who Else Wants Guns Illegal in U.S.? Iran’s Supreme Leader

It’s always good to see Fascists standing together!

3/6 – WATCH: A Star Is Born! Speech On Guns By VA Lawmaker Causes Democrat Walk-Out, Goes Viral

As Ricochet’s Jim Geraghty and Nick Corombos pointed out in their Monday podcast, this is good news for Virginians who’d like to have a choice in the Republican Senate primaries other than the guy running on the platform of Confederate statues in Corey Stewart

“It’s really difficult to have an open and honest debate about this […] because members of this body are comparing members of [the Republican] side of the aisle to Nazis,” he said, adding that it was particularly offensive that GOP members were also compared to “segregationists.”

3/7 – Antifa Tries to Shut Down a “Sargon of Akkad” Event

The left continues to be violent, and the leftwing media continues to either cover up for them or, when their violence is so notorious it cannot be covered up for, to actively defend them and justify their violence.

The media is therefore complicit in leftwing violence, and yet also insists that it should be spared even any criticism, because to even criticize it is to attack the foundations of democracy by “chilling speech.”

Well — what about providing aid and comfort to fascist organizations explicitly devoted to chilling speech, media?

3/7 – WaPo Columnist Pens FRIGHTENING Defense Of Marxism: ‘It’s Time To Give Socialism A Try’

Our latest reminder that our country was one rigged Democratic Primary away from half of the country voting to turn America into Venezuela, Part II

3/7 – Cuomo: God Asks if You’ve Been a Good Progressive When You Get to the Pearly Gates

Yeah, and if you proudly admit to dedicating your life to tormenting his followers you’ll be promptly sent to The Other Place.

3/7 – WATCH: Scarborough Tries To Lecture Ted Cruz On Guns, Gets Embarrassed

OK, Morning Joe getting embarrassed isn’t exactly news, but I like his “You can talk down to me all you want to”, which is Leftspeak for “Stop stating facts that contradict my beliefs!”

3/8 – Chicago Tribune Rips ‘Complicit’ Democratic Congressman for Not Condemning Farrakhan

Wow, things are getting bad when Democrats are finally getting called out for their racism by their once-loyal minions in the press!

3/9 – NEA Funds Woke Journal

Funding the racial & gender supremacy of The Radical Left!

And one from the vault – Two years ago I advocated that It’s Time for a National Conversation About Having a National Conversation On Guns. The more things change the more they stay the same…

Cross posted from Brother Bob’s Blog

Blogging by the credo of "Making the world a more offensive place, one blog post at a time", Brother Bob started writing posts around the beginning of the Obama presidency over at Brother Bob's Blog. A born-again Existentialist and self-professed libertarian with conservative tendencies, he has ironically chosen to live in the Washington, DC area - deep behind enemy lines. He has always loved history, and spent eight years volunteering as a tour guide on weekends, giving over 200 tours to roughly 2,500 mostly foreign guests. His tours were highlighted by stories generally not found in the history books or most other tours, such as the importance of the Battle if Antietam, the origins or Arlington Cemetery, and dispelling the myths of FDR's New Deal. Although his favorite subject to blog about is Economics, as seen in his Economics for Politicians series, his posts try to address angles that other conservative writers and the mainstream media (naturally!) miss. "There's no point in putting up a post on a subject that someone smarter than me has already written". He believes in the "Happy Warrior" approach, and tries to inject humor in his posts, sometimes successfully. Two such examples are his posts comparing the modern left to the horrible Star Wars prequels, and analyzing the laments of a DC woman in search of a feminist boyfriend. Brother Bob lives with his very patient wife known as Sister Babe, and their fantastic son. Little Bob. Little Bob is also the reason that being a tour guide came to an end, as spending Saturdays raising a son takes priority over giving lectures to foreign visitors on the folly of Keynesian economics. BB is also grateful for the opportunity to take his place among the outstanding writers at Flopping Aces, appreciates every person who takes the time to read his posts, and especially those who join him in the conversation in the comments.

    Everybody is a millionaire!

    But look how beautifully some artists are making use of their new cheapest art media:

    3/3 – Sweden: Woman faces two years in prison for making jokes about Islam

    …And American Leftists weep with envy

    Meanwhile a Muslim rapist of a 13-yr old girl gets only 2 months, including “time served” while he awaited trail.

    Actually, most normal people are a little bit uncomfortable with movies glorifying pedophelia and bestiality

    Movies that lose money but “virtue signal,” are proof that Obama was right about “some people already having enough money.” /off

    3/7 – Cuomo: God Asks if You’ve Been a Good Progressive When You Get to the Pearly Gates

    Yeah, and if you proudly admit to dedicating your life to tormenting his followers you’ll be promptly sent to The Other Place.

    Methinks Cuomo has conflated “Classical Liberalism” with “progressiveness.” I do believe that acts of classical liberalism are looked upon favorably by God.
    Progressiveness (abortions, providing abortions, putting self in God’s place, lying, cheating, etc.) not so much.

    Pointing out Scarboro voted for ending the ban on assault rifles hurts his widdle feelings. Trying to argue gun rights with someone who went before the supreme court and won, cut him off and talk over him is not winning the debate. Shame on Cruz for having a battle of wits with the unarmed. Talking down to Scarboro how can you not?

    Bill… Deplorable Me

    03/01 – Why Did It Take Two Weeks To Discover Parkland Students’ Astroturfing?

    Because the phoniness behind it was not important. What was important was making the best liberal use of a tragedy.

    3/1 – Facebook Threatens Satire Site Babylon Bee over CNN Story That Snopes Rated ‘False’

    But I thought anything done in the name of “humor” was allowed?

    3/3 – White Customers Asked To Pay More At New Orleans Restaurant

    At this point, 78% of white customers are “choosing” to pay the higher price. I wonder, how many are doing this out of fear, guilt or feeling intimidated?

    Or having their food spit on. Look! There’s a McDonald’s!

    3/5 – Dreamers Turn on Dems, Block Entrance to DNC: ‘Too Many Years, Too Many Lies!’

    The Blue Wave is not looking like such a lock these days. The Democrats may have missed their opportunities to squeeze any favorable concessions for themselves while exploiting the immigration issue.

    3/5 – Kimmel: We Make Films ‘To Upset Mike Pence.’ That’s True, And It’s An Important Admission.

    And they stink and lose money. Keep it up.

    3/6 – Guess Who Else Wants Guns Illegal in U.S.? Iran’s Supreme Leader

    Oh, and for the exact same reasons, too.

    3/6 – WATCH: A Star Is Born! Speech On Guns By VA Lawmaker Causes Democrat Walk-Out, Goes Viral

    Is it possible to have this speech broadcast by loudspeaker all across the nation? Maybe all liberals will get up and walk out.

    3/7 – WaPo Columnist Pens FRIGHTENING Defense Of Marxism: ‘It’s Time To Give Socialism A Try’

    I can hear their reasoned argument: It’s never been tried and it always works!

    3/7 – Cuomo: God Asks if You’ve Been a Good Progressive When You Get to the Pearly Gates

    And then they find out it’s a trick question.
