The Week in Radical Leftism, 01/11/2019

By 8 Comments


 
Welcome back everyone! After our Lefty pals gave us a preview of the insanity we can expect for the next two years on their first day in The House, they kept their foot on the gas and kept the crazy coming! First we take a jump into the Wayback Machine and go all the way back to 2018…

10/5/18 – Trump 2020?

This came via a Facebook commenter, and a good read by #NeverTrumper Erick Erickson. In response to my lamenting how far Jonah Goldberg has sunk, here’s a great post by someone who dislikes our president but gets it. The last line of the post nails it, but you’ll have to click through to read it. Instead I’ll give you this great line for a taste:



Progressives may claim President Trump is Caesar at the edge of the Rubicon, but they have embraced the bastard love child of Joseph Stalin and Franz Kafka and enlisted the American political press to smear, defame, and attack anyone who stands in their way.

1/2 – In Memoriam: Saying Goodbye to Metal Straws, 2018’s LiveStrong Bracelet

Back to my favorite Lefty Entertainment News sites – The Observer! We Conservatives like to rip on how Lefties have no sense of humor when it comes to their own, and this post on plastic straws is a welcome exception. Since John DeVore gives us the rare combination of a Lefty 1) laughing at their own and 2) making political humor that’s actually funny, please give him a click!

1/4 – 116TH CONGRESS IS THE FIRST CONGRESS TO FEATURE SOMEONE WHO MARRIED HER BROTHER (ILHAN OMAR)

I’m old enough to remember when marrying a sibling was an insult that Leftists would throw at Conservatives, rather than quietly embracing it.

1/4 – ***SNIFF*** A reluctant CNN reports on blowout job numbers…

Some minor friendly fire – CNN has its chart for Unemployment numbers stop at the start of the Trump presidency for obvious reasons, but the author doesn’t provide the kill shot of including Obama’s numbers side by side. I said as much in the comments, and hopefully it came across as constructive.

1/5 – REPUBLICANS POUNCE!

Take a guess how The Radical Left in the media is portraying the “Impeach the mother f***er!” comment. Go ahead, guess!

1/5 – The LA Times Decides Anti-Semites Are Fiiiiine. As Long As They’re Liberal.

If it weren’t for double standards, Leftists wouldn’t have any at all

1/6 – Get Ready For The Big Democratic Gun Control Push

This perfectly sums up the difference between the two parties. No matter how much power Republicans have they will always find a way to fail to advance a conservative agenda. The Radical Left gets control of 1/2 of the weakest branch of federal government and they launch an ambitious radical agenda. This is why so many of us continue to support Trump – at times it feels like he’s the only person in Washington who doesn’t hate us Normals

1/6 – ‘Who are you?’ Judge Jeanine taunts foul-mouthed new Dem Congresswomen: ‘You don’t have the guts …’

The money quote in response to the “Impeach the mother f***er!” stupidity:

“You call him an M-fer because you don’t like the way he talks,” she said. “But you don’t have the guts to follow through with your claim. When you are confronted by the press you whimper away and run from the American media. Did Nancy [Pelosi] rein you in, Rashida?”

1/6 – Julian Castro cites 90 percent tax on rich in defending Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on tax hikes

Ah, and now The Radical Left is in a race as to who can be the dumbest. How about a 100% rate? I’m sure this would be good for improving foreign relations, as these kinds of tax increases would send insane amounts of investment capital overseas.

1/7 – I Was Banned from a Conservative Group on Facebook for Pointing Out Fake News

More semi-friendly fire. Author Matt Margolis got banned from a Conservative site for being a liberal after challenging an obviously fake news piece. Yes, the man who wrote a bestselling book on why Obama was the worst president in our nation’s history is a liberal. His main point is an argument I’ve also used – when there are plenty of legit reasons to criticize the other side, don’t let fake stories diminish your overall arguments.

And Margolis has another book coming up on how Trump saved us from Obama’s legacy – I’ll keep you posted when it gets released!

1/7 – Socialist Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Accidentally Endorses Social Security Privatization, Minimum Wage Repeal, Corporate Tax Cuts

IBD gives a great response to Gulag Barbie’s calls for socialism – this is another good piece to bookmark for reference

1/7 – Carlson’s Invisible Political Hand Riles Conservative Critics

You’ve probably watched Tucker’s speech from a few nights ago by now. While I saw flaws in some of what he was saying, overall it was damned good. What’s more interesting is the hysterics of the Vichy Conservative #NeverTrumpers

1/8 – Did Ballot-Harvesting By Illegals Flip Elections To Democrats?

This is part of my an unfettered flow of illegal immigrants is so important to Democrats – the uppity Americans can no longer be relied on to vote as they’re told and must now have their voting power diluted, and eventually replaced.

1/9 – DNC Chair Won’t Say ‘What Changed’ From 2006 or 2013 When Dems Voted for Border Security

This is a fair question to raise. If Obama, Schumer, etc. all held opinions a decade ago that national security and a border wall that have completely reversed, then what changed? I don’t have an issue with changing positions on an issue (For example, today I am far more pro 2nd Amendment than I was 20 years ago), but if you do you should be able to articulate what changed or what new facts you learned. Saying that your views “evolved”or giving the sputtering explanations that the Dems have given tells me one or two reasons: 1) You were lying previously to say something popular while failing to take any action or 2) You hate the proponents of today’s policy, and will say to Hell with the views you claimed to have and are a hypocrite (A frequent position of Vichy Conservatives). I this case I’m leaning more toward #1.

1/10 – BORDER WALL: MONUMENT FOR THE PEOPLE, NOT POLS

This is one of the rare times I’ll use oppose an argument using that silly Leftist excuse of “Whataboutism” (which is just Leftspeak for “How dare you point out my hypocrisy!”). The post shows how Lefties are willing to drop billions of dollars on building projects of questionable value, which is bunk. The value of a project is the merit of it and that alone. That said, while I find this to be an unserious argument it can be a fun sticking point if you find yourself debating an unserious Left Wing Extremist.

1/11 – San Diego Station: CNN Declined To Use Our Reporter After We Told Them Border Patrol Agents Say The Wall Works

There’s really nothing I can add to that.

ICYMI – Yes, I’m finally getting back into writing more than these summaries, putting up two posts this week:

The end of the NFL regular season’s annual ritual of head coaches being fired bought out an ugly side to Leftists when we saw that Racist Leftists Think that Nonwhite NFL Coaches Must be Held to Lower Standards!

I also named the 2018 person of the Year.  To promote it in proper clickbait fashion, the winner WILL ASTONISH YOU!

From the archives, I recalled a post I wrote regarding a previous federal government shutdown – The #1 Lesson from the Shutdown is that the Left in America is Completely Gone 

I didn’t realize it’s been five years since President Stompyfoot punished the American people over a shutdown. More significantly for me personally, it was the beginning of my realizing the futility of engaging Leftists on any level. What starts as a post on the Barrycades around various memorials and national parks shows an incredibly disturbing look into the mindset of the American Left. This resonates today with the leaders of the Democrats’ opposition to building a border wall to protect the United States.

And the last item I’ll leave you with comes from Flopping Aces commenter Kitt dropping this gem in the comments section of last week’s TWIRL – Ding Dong the Witch is Dead, 2016 edition

Have a great week, everybody!

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.

    10/5/18 – Trump 2020?

    Hate him or love him, judge him on what he accomplishes. As insane as he has made liberals also indicates he is doing a great job for the country.

    1/2 – In Memoriam: Saying Goodbye to Metal Straws, 2018’s LiveStrong Bracelet

    “2018 was the year I learned that Americans use 500 million disposable plastic straws every day.” Funny, when accepting statements like that as gospel, they never bother to look around and notice that they are not up to their necks in plastic straws and think to themselves, “Gee, I wonder why not?”

    1/4 – 116TH CONGRESS IS THE FIRST CONGRESS TO FEATURE SOMEONE WHO MARRIED HER BROTHER (ILHAN OMAR)

    Democrats can certainly pick em. This is the gang Pelosi claims she is going to restore “ethics” to the House with.

    1/4 – ***SNIFF*** A reluctant CNN reports on blowout job numbers…

    Yeah, I read numerous liberals claiming those were all temp jobs or low paying jobs. That had to hurt. But, no doubt by now, it’s like it never happened.

    1/5 – REPUBLICANS POUNCE!

    ““I continue to believe that obstruction of justice is the clearest, simplest and most provable high crime and misdemeanor committed by Donald J. Trump,” Mr. Sherman said in a statement.” Well, then they have a serious problem, don’t they?

    1/5 – The LA Times Decides Anti-Semites Are Fiiiiine. As Long As They’re Liberal.

    If they close their eyes real tight, it looks like everyone else are racists except for them.

    1/6 – Get Ready For The Big Democratic Gun Control Push

    Blah, blah, blah, gun show loophole, blah, blah, blah. SOS.

    1/6 – ‘Who are you?’ Judge Jeanine taunts foul-mouthed new Dem Congresswomen: ‘You don’t have the guts …’

    See above. The Democrats admit obstruction for firing the guy all Democrats and Republicans wanted fired anyway was their best chance. Tlaib is another of those liberal anti-Semites that don’t exist.

    1/6 – Julian Castro cites 90 percent tax on rich in defending Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on tax hikes

    More populism for the ignorant. I think 125% should be the rate.

    1/7 – I Was Banned from a Conservative Group on Facebook for Pointing Out Fake News

    We all know how stupid one looks when promoting a false story from observing liberals. When caught, there is really no good excuse. Ignorance? Dishonesty? Neither is very complementary. It is quite possible stories like that are invented by liberals for that very purpose; embarrass conservatives by exposing their ignorance. I also saw a Facebook post saying the Trump’s had donated $1 billion to the wall GoFundMe. Inside the article, it goes on a diatribe about how Trump is just chomping at the bit to kick people off their land and seize property for “his” wall. The intent is for supporters of the wall to forward the crap out of it, destroying their own position. I cautioned the guy to read the damn articles before promoting them. No doubt Russians are behind it; no Democrats would pull such a stunt… would they?

    1/7 – Socialist Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Accidentally Endorses Social Security Privatization, Minimum Wage Repeal, Corporate Tax Cuts

    Well, if this embarrassment of ignorance ever comes back up, she’ll just deny it and the liberal media hack interviewing her will not follow up. No harm, no foul.

    1/8 – Did Ballot-Harvesting By Illegals Flip Elections To Democrats?

    Just remember, there is no such thing as Democrat voter fraud. That’s what we’re told… by Democrats.

    1/9 – DNC Chair Won’t Say ‘What Changed’ From 2006 or 2013 When Dems Voted for Border Security

    All that changed is that a guy showed up that might actually DO border security. The left made a vote-gathering killing by pretending to be tough and strong on opposing illegal immigration, border security and walls. However, as they have proven since 1986, there was really no one serious about the problem. Democrats use the issue to accuse those wanting border security racists while Republicans fear the media and being painted as racists. Then along comes a guy with the worst combination of traits that the political establishment could imagine; a guy that WANTS to end illegal immigration and secure the border, doesn’t fear the media and cannot be painted as any more of a racist than he already has been from the first day of his Presidency. THAT’S what changed.

    1/10 – BORDER WALL: MONUMENT FOR THE PEOPLE, NOT POLS

    Every section should have a plaque on both sides dedicating it to a US citizen killed by an illegal immigrant. Hopefully there are enough sections.

    1/11 – San Diego Station: CNN Declined To Use Our Reporter After We Told Them Border Patrol Agents Say The Wall Works

    It’s not news unless it is liberal agenda-driving news.

    Rush often points out that Democrats often get elected by pretending to be Republicans. So do too many Republicans

    MOS#8541

    allegedly 500 million straws a day. recall that this announcement was made by a 12 y/o. who was reading off a prompter- what crap. in fu**** ca. paper straws are present in a plastic envelope. This is a good time to stop all federal funding to ca and detroit-US funds over 38% of the city’s total budget
