Woke Progressives are a Tiny Minority

Last week the Atlantic.com, of all places, posted an article dispelling the myth that there is an fast growing progressive movement on the rise in this country.

It’s called being “Woke.” For those unfamiliar, or otherwise have a life, being “woke” is like you figured it all out – that you, more than others, particularly those on the right, have your finger on the pulse of the nation. You’ve been awakened.

In fact these “woke” Americans are the most clueless among us and willfully fall prey to every leftist claim and theory they stumble upon. Unfortunately, the same can be said of some on the right, who too trap themselves in a maze of conspiracy theories.

For the “woke,” the trap is political correctness.

The study the Atlantic cites is entitled, “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape.” read more

Does the Left Really Not Know What a Mob is?

Heather Wilhelm at National Review explains:

How to Tell If You Are Part of a Mob

This shouldn’t be that hard to explain.

Not a Mob, according to CNN

During the final, torturous week in which our nation collectively lost its marbles over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, I happened to be out of the country. This was a fantastic decision on my part — one could not feel the surge of unhinged panic in France, where people just kind of sauntered around as usual, smoking cigarettes, and looking vaguely aloof — but I also apparently missed some very exciting news.

One of the most thrilling things I missed, or so I am told, involved an exhaustive national debate over the meaning of mysterious terms in Brett Kavanaugh’s high-school yearbook. “Devil’s Triangle.” “Boof.” It was wild! It was like decoding the prophecies of Nostradamus, or at least the Rosetta Stone! read more

The Left’s Issues are the Same as They Were 44 Years Ago

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Okay, maybe they’re not all the same. For instance, one issue is decidedly different. Back in 1974, we weren’t concerned with global warming. Instead, America was caught in the grip of GLOBAL COOLING hysteria. Yes, the next Ice Age was right around the corner.

However, according to today’s leftists, many of the same things they were griping about almost a half a century ago must not have improved much, if at all.

Now how can that be, you may legitimately ask. How, after progressive presidents like Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George H W Bush, Bill Clinton, the second term of George W Bush and Barack Obama, could the left still be whining about the very same issues? Add to that, a democrat controlled legislature for most of those decades.

Yet they are. And I suppose this is how “old sayings” become established. read more

Steven Crowder Claims Columbus Wasn’t All Bad

Columbus Day has come and gone. or is it Native American’s Day, or Indigenous People’s Day, or whatever.

Leave it to Steven Crowder to set us straight and explain that Columbus wasn’t the genocidal white European manic he’s been made out to be or that the Injuns that he supposed slaughtered weren’t everything we’ve been taught.

Enjoy the video from Prager University: read more

Taylor Swift and Scott Kelly Surrender to the Twitter Mob

from Piers Morgan at The Daily Mail:

Yes – anti-gun liberal, U.K. nut-job Piers Morgan, who I now find I agree with more than less. Funny ole world isn’t it!

There’s only one winner in Taylor Swift and Scott Kelly’s gutless surrender to the howling Twitter mob – President Trump

Oh Taylor.

Why, why, WHY?

Just when I thought you were the only sane celebrity left in this increasingly mad world of frenzied partisan bulls**t, you suddenly decide to go all ‘woke’ on me.

As you once sang: ‘Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?’

Of course, we all know the answer.

Taylor Swift, who is hugely popular in middle America, hasn’t chosen this moment to abandon her very sensible apolitical stance and come out as a Democrat because she genuinely thought: ‘Oh, I must alienate half my audience today.’

No, she’s done it because the howling Twitter mob hammered her into submission. read more

MMA is a Manifestation of an Increasingly Violent Society

Many opponents of MMA claim they are due to safety concerns for the fighters. I frankly don’t give a crap. Oh sure, as a Christian, I don’t want anyone to be hurt, but as a freedom loving conservative, it’s their right to be as moronic as they wish and beat the crap out of each other for profit and the amusement of the masses.

As an aside, in my opinion as a martial artist, calling this “sport,” Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is an affront to the discipline and dedication of martial arts. Training oneself in some aspects of various styles of martial arts for the sole purpose of beating the hell of another is decidedly not martial arts. But, as I said, that’s just my opinion.

Many have called them modern day Gladiators, but it’s much worse than that. In the early days of gladiatorial contests, none of the fighters had a choice to “compete.” They weren’t Romans. They were men captured from conquered territories, or slaves or indentured servants. These men were conscripted into Gladiator schools and trained to fight. They didn’t have a choice.

It wasn’t until later, as the spectacle grew in popularity, that free men and even women volunteered, due to the lure of fame and fortune. Some from Rome’s upper crust political class tried their hands, drawn by the allure of the roaring and fawning crowds. Even a few Roman Emperors entered the ring. Although their matches resembled a fixed WWE match rather than a real battle. read more

The Left had no Problem with our “Choom Gang” President

from Daily Wire:

Obama Admits Heavy Drinking, Drug Problems As An ‘Adolescent’ In Rare Video Footage

In light of the recent attacks on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over his alleged drinking in high school and his having thrown ice at someone in a bar, a rare video clip of then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama has surfaced that shows the 40-year-old admitting that while he was a “young boy” and an “adolescent” he drank “a six-pack in an hour” in between classes, got in fights, was a “thug,” and used illegal drugs. read more

The Hollywood Makeover of Hanoi Jane – Part Two

A few days ago I posted John Velisek’s article entitled, The Hollywood Makeover of Hanoi Jane – Part One.

He informed us of a new HBO special which will no doubt attempt to white-wash her radical leftism and anti-Vietnam war atrocities. Or, knowing HBO, they may revel in them.

But John, as a Vietnam vet, remembers full well the damage that Hanoi Jane wrought. In Part Two, John reminds us of just what Hanoi Jane said.

Guest post by John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
for the Common Constitutionalist

Does Jane or any of these liberals at HBO remember her speaking ill of our soldiers on July 30, 1972:

“They believed in the Army, but when they were here, when they discovered that their officers were incompetent, usually drunk when they discovered that the Vietnamese people have a fight that they believed in, that the Vietnamese people were fighting for much the same reason that we fought the beginning of our country…” read more

Conservative Black is a Racist – Because he Has to Be

from the American Thinker:

Media Matters vs. Blacks

Having dispatched Alex Jones from most every public platform on the face of the earth, the left is looking to engage more targets.. With an insatiable appetite to remove conservative thought from the public square, they have found a new whipping boy to thrash. His name is Jesse Lee Peterson, and his face is being plastered on liberal “Most Wanted” posters for his “white supremacist content.” read more

Beginning to Worry about the Safety of the President

At virtually every one of the countless rallies he has given in various States, there has been at least one, if not a number of loud, obnoxious protesters, screaming at Trump while he speaks. So angry are these people that, from across the venue, you can see the veins popping on their foreheads.

Now, they may be getting paid by some leftist PAC to act this way, but they also may just be this angry. As we’ve seen on a number of occasions, these unhinged leftists are indeed just this angry.

At more than a few of his rallies, the President has said: “How did he (or she) get in here?” How indeed.

Now one has to assume that these people are screened for contraband and weapons prior to gaining entry, but we know security can’t be right 100% of the time.

So this begs the question. Would any of these lunatic protesters be unbalanced enough to attempt to harm the President? Would they, like jihadists, be willing to sacrifice themselves for their psychotic cause? read more
