The Week in Radical Leftism, 8/10/2018

By 13 Comments


 
Welcome back, everybody! Preseason NFL action has started, college football is also just around the corner, and a little bit of summer relaxation hasn’t made our friends on The Left any less crazy! First we go back a few months to an old story that will remain current until… sadly for many years to come

2/8 – You’ve Heard People Compare Trump to Hitler. So We Asked a Woman Who Was Born in Nazi Germany… 

As I like to say, if Leftists put as much energy ito reading books as they did into banning them they’d all be jet-fuel geniuses.



7/20 – Obama-Supporting Think Tank Admits Obamacare Has Failed, Recommends Doubling Down

I missed this gem as I was getting ready to leave for vacation a few weeks ago. Shorter Leftism: “If our ideas fail it’s you fault for not believing enough!”   H/T: Obamacare Truth Squad (In the tweet roundup below)

8/2 – The Incredible Irony of James Gunn’s ‘Guardians’ Firing

Between last week’s and this week’s gems from the LeftyEntertainment journo “The Observer” this site might become a weekly staple! Take a guess as to where they weigh in on one of their own having a history of making pedophile jokes. Go ahead, guess! For an appropriate response, allow me to point to to the great Kurt Schlichter

Cultural war is hell, and I propose it be hell first and foremost on the liberals who started it.

I want people to be able to say what they want. I think it’s an awful idea to persecute folks for saying controversial stuff. I want people to not do that. But here’s the catch – I want all people not to do that, not just us conservatives.

Except I’ve been outvoted by people like the aforementioned James Gunn. He likes the idea of persecuting people for what they say. Well, he liked it. Now that he’s no longer directing the next space raccoon movie, he probably likes it a lot less. Weird how that works out. Yeah, the Lottery is loads of fun until you draw the slip of paper with the black spot.

8/4 – Cory Booker: I was tricked into holding this anti-Israel sign

Ladies and gentlemen, one of the top names we’ll be seeing on the stage at the 2020 DNC Debates!

8/4 – EDER CAMPUZANO OF OREGONIAN SENT TO URGENT CARE AFTER BEING STRUCK WITH BOTTLE THROWN BY LEFTISTS IN PORTLAND

I’m sure that any MSM press that bothers to cover the riot knows to include the mandtory phrase “mostly peaceful”

8/5 – ISIS Calls for Bio Attack on San Fran – Libs Did It First

I’m reminded of that line from Young Frankenstein – “Damn your eyes! Too late.”

8/6 – Mass. Dems step on their own gender PC rake and get slammed right in the face

Read this short piece if you want to read about Republican lawmakers throwing Leftist stupidity right back in their faces

8/7 – CNN’s Own Legal Analyst Dashes Their Collusion Narrative

To their credit it’s only taken two years to figure out what every sane American has known all along

8/8 – NEW ANNE FRANK PLAY CASTS ICE AS THE NAZIS

This is one of those cases where you ask if  Leftists are stupid or evil. The answer, of course, is “Yes”

8/9 – Street Artist Confuses Trump-Star Smashers With Hilarious Tactic

Some Sabo-esque genius!

8/10 – Journalists or Activists? CNN, Which Admitted They Were Responsible for Getting Alex Jones Deplatformed from YouTube, Apple, and FaceBook, Now Admits It’s Also Pressuring Twitter to Deplatform Him

The sad irony of the Alex Jones situation is that with all of the crazy stuff he’s said over the years what got him thrown off were two videos trying to protect children from sexual predators. The press’ behavior in general lately needs a separate post of its own.

From the vault, we go back to early 2015 when I opined on having Mixed Feelings About the Backlash Against the Press. Given how the propagandists in the profession formerly known as journalism have been conducting themselves, those feelings are a lot less mixed these days.

And going back to the Facebook video series, “The Swamp”, Ep 3, Dirty Money and Backroom Deals will make you want to throw up. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

I normally don’t comment on the tweets at the end of my posts, but on this first one from Jason Beale you’ll want to read the entire thread.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

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.

    2/8 – You’ve Heard People Compare Trump to Hitler. So We Asked a Woman Who Was Born in Nazi Germany…

    When this lady came over, there were unbreakable rules for immigration, so one simply assumed one had to abide by them. Now, depending on the type of argument going on in Washington at any given time, the rules are either the RULES or they are mere suggestions to be honored or simply discarded. Illegal immigrants think the Obama rules are still in place and a free pass over the border awaits them, then they get caught up in the enforce the rules period. Who’s fault is that?

    7/20 – Obama-Supporting Think Tank Admits Obamacare Has Failed, Recommends Doubling Down

    “Think” tank? More accurately a “Justification” tank. Their job is to justify more liberal control over our lives, not solve any actual problems. They can’t… THEY are the problem.

    8/2 – The Incredible Irony of James Gunn’s ‘Guardians’ Firing

    Whether this guy has changed or not, all this proves, once again, is that the left will accept ANYTHING from one of their own, while condemning a non-liberal for a misstep, an implied misstep or something that can be transformed into a misstep. It’s ideology, not character.

    8/4 – Cory Booker: I was tricked into holding this anti-Israel sign

    He didn’t have time to read it. Really. This guy wants to be President.

    8/4 – EDER CAMPUZANO OF OREGONIAN SENT TO URGENT CARE AFTER BEING STRUCK WITH BOTTLE THROWN BY LEFTISTS IN PORTLAND

    Well, this IS a tough one. Since the recipient of the water bottle was a liberal journalist, obviously he wasn’t ASKING for it and justly hit, as would be the case if he was a conservative, and since leftist protesters NEVER commit violence, did this really even happen?

    8/5 – ISIS Calls for Bio Attack on San Fran – Libs Did It First

    Indeed, like destroying our faith in elections, all any of our enemies have to do is simply wait while the liberals destroy everything themselves.

    8/6 – Mass. Dems step on their own gender PC rake and get slammed right in the face

    I wonder if the liberals gave up on that because they didn’t want to spend the time on it or did they finally realize how ridiculous their gender-pandering actually was? Yeah, it was the time factor, wasn’t it?

    8/7 – CNN’s Own Legal Analyst Dashes Their Collusion Narrative

    This is a good weekend for him to get all his school supplies as he heads back to re-education.

    8/8 – NEW ANNE FRANK PLAY CASTS ICE AS THE NAZIS

    The hat and coat check has been changed to an intellect check, where you leave your intelligence before entering the theater.

    8/9 – Street Artist Confuses Trump-Star Smashers With Hilarious Tactic

    Note to the left: in many ways, Americans are growing tired of your fascism, intimidation and violence and are fighting back. Proceed with caution.

    8/10 – Journalists or Activists? CNN, Which Admitted They Were Responsible for Getting Alex Jones Deplatformed from YouTube, Apple, and FaceBook, Now Admits It’s Also Pressuring Twitter to Deplatform Him

    More ironic than CNN trying to silence people for not being truthful?

    Ms Cortez wont debate? Well someone figured out that her evil plan to be the ruler of the “free” world would cost 32 trillion dollars, yes many many zeros but as an economics major she saw all the zeros and we all know zero times any other number is zero. But a 30 % tax on those who are keeping the unemployment numbers low by working 2 jobs and 90 hour weeks still well below the poverty line, yes 30 % tax on them, who are now getting medicaid FREE, Someone also dug up a Michael Moore tweet: Hugo Chavez declared the oil belonged 2 the ppl. He used the oil $ 2 eliminate 75% of extreme poverty, provide free health & education 4 all,” Had he not left that 25 % behind it might have worked…riiight?
    Venezuelas currency is now worth more as recycled paper a cup of coffee is a cool million. They have a minimum wage of 1 dollar a month converted. but with the hyper inflation I could be way behind.
    But on the lighter side Madonna has finally kept her campaign promise to move if DT became President, Portugal
    To those who have yet to keep their promise this weeks selection https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rW9-FOLG-iA

    Today, for the 5th or 6th day in a row, I, and other seniors, children and sickly people are being told to stay indoors.
    We are in Northern Utah.
    Our air pollution is of the highest level.
    The particulates are from the CA wildfires!

    We can blame radical lefties for this.
    For decades they have been confused about forests & trees.
    They think people are the enemies of forests & trees.
    If we even touch one it is too much!
    They are “environmentalists.”
    But forests & trees need to be cared for.
    Conservationists know that.

    But the left won so beetle bark infested trees were left to stand, dead, spreading their infestations to over 12 million new trees per year in CA.
    Forests are too crowded, trees too close together to each get its needed water or nutrients from the soil, so, more dead trees.
    These fires are “clear-cutting” the forests more so than any paper company or lumber company ever would.
    And the carbon footprint of these fires?
    Its more than all the carbon savings of the entire country for this entire year!

    And it’s making people sick.

    @kitt:

    Ms Cortez wont debate?

    Perhaps she’s not as stupid as she looks, or has good advisers. At any rate, her debating ANYONE would be a personal disaster.

    @Nanny G: No. Wrong. Liberals are never to blame. This is caused by global warming. Moonbeam said so.

    @Spurwing Plover: And if you want to be really obnoxious and get a Leftist to storm off from an argument, you could point out that the only reason that Leftists worship Stalin, Mao, Castro, Guevara, etc while loathing Hitler is that Hitler committed the unforgivable sin of making anti-semitism uncool for half a century
