The Left Should be Tried for Inciting Violence

Growing up – most of us were taught that sticks and stones will break our bones, but words can never hurt us. Well, not anymore.

Words, we are told, lead to violence, and on college campuses, it seems words are violence itself.

Although I don’t subscribe to this view, I suppose some can think it true in some instances. It certainly happened in the much publicized case of the then teenage girl who convinced her teenage boyfriend to off himself by means of a car (or truck) exhaust.

We on the right say that this is ridiculous. It may have been the girl’s prodding, but it was the boy’s choice and only his, to act on her insistences. No one forced him to listen to her blather. No one forced him to act.

He and he alone is responsible for his actions – not her. But of course we know by now that this is not how it went down. The girl was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, for talking the weak-willed boy into action. Pathetic!

In a real world filled with reasonable people, this case would have never seen the light of day. A judge would have tossed it out telling the plaintiff to grow up. It was no ones fault but his own. read more

WND Exclusive – ‘Petro Pete’ fights Warmist Wackos in Gov’t Schools

Leftist global-warming nuts are angry that someone else is daring to compete with them at their own propaganda game.

It’s just not fair, say the warmist wackos. We all know man-caused global warming is a reality. For the good of the planet, no one is allowed to dispute it, nor promote a differing opinion.

But according to the Fiscal Times, who sympathize with the lefty warming crazies, another group is not only challenging the set-in-stone fact, but is having success in convincing American children that man-caused warming is a myth. And worse – they are advancing the notion that the use of coal, oil and gas is actually a good thing. read more

Podcast – Can Ted Nugent Keep His Vow of Civility

Uncle Ted Nugent

The other day Uncle Ted Nugent, the Motor City Mad Man went on a radio show and promised to become more civil, even saying he would walk away rather than engage in hateful rhetoric.

We can all hope to do such a thing. The problem is, this is all the left knows. Via Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, this is all the left has ever learned. And personally I see no signs of them giving this up. We can vow to be more civil, but don’t expect the left to follow suit.

They know of no other way to achieve power and control but to demonize the right. Don’t be surprised in the coming weeks or months if Uncle Ted is tested to live up to his vow – or walk away. read more

The Best of Fake-Hate

by The College Fix:

Hate-crime hoaxes had a banner year

During the 2016-17 school year, campuses across the nation were plagued by numerous hate crime reports — but so many turned out to be fake.

Often, students confessed to fabricating the incident or submitting a baseless report after police found no evidence. Sometimes they refused to even cooperate with police, making an investigation impossible. Other times officers caught the “victims” red-handed in their own web of lies.

Many examples were inspired by students trying to create and push the narrative of a spike in hate crimes after Donald Trump was elected president.

Here are some of the most outrageous examples from campuses and college students over the past school year. read more

Is the Rainbow Flag’s Orange Stripe a Shout Out to Trump

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A couple of days ago, The Blaze reported that the city of Philthadelphia “Office of LGBT affairs” has recently unfurled a new flag – the multi-colored rainbow LGBTQ+ flag. They just keep adding more letters – and now even a symbol. Talk about a run-on acronym.

So Philadelphia, which has a total debt of $14.3 billion, or $27,500 per taxpayer (the third highest per capita in the nation), has enough money to fund an Office of LGBT Affairs for what is claimed to be 3.9 percent of its population. And I doubt the percentage is that high.

Anyway, the Run-On Acronym Society (ROAS) claims the new and improved rainbow flag will “show their support for people of color [POC] who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. We say that we’re inclusive. We celebrate it. Now it’s time to go further.”

The colors they added to show solidarity with the POC are of course brown and black. This may seem inclusive, but to me, this instead shows how racist the ROAS really is, that other-than-hetero POC don’t and can’t identify with the pretty colors that already adorn the flag. read more

The Democrats and the Left Radicalized James T. Hodgkinson

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Republican Representative Steve Scalise, two Capital Hill police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, Congressional staffer Zack Barth and Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika. I’m sure we all wish them a speedy recover.

As most are aware, these individuals were injured in a terrorist shooting during a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Va. yesterday.

Did I say terrorist shooting? Darn right I said terrorist! That’s exactly what it was. It was not an Islamic terror attack, but it was terror none the less.

Terror is defined simply as a violent or destructive act committed by an individual or group in order to intimidate a population or government. It may also invoke extreme fear and anxiety. I think we can check off all those boxes.

Others can describe it another way, but to me this was an act of terror. How many Republican Representatives, Senators and staffers will now have their heads on a swivel, forced to be much more aware of their surroundings and maybe sleep with one eye open because of this lunatic. They will no doubt be thinking of copy cats for the foreseeable future. read more

Single Payer Government Healthcare was Always the Endgame

This was the endgame all along. A few of us saw this coming a mile away and spoke out back then. Heck – all you had to do was listen to Obama’s own words to know what the plan was. It was never going to be ObamaCare forever.

“I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program… A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately…” – Barack Obama, 2003.

In 2006, Obama said that although he “would not shy away from a debate about single-payer,” right now he is “not convinced that it is the best way to achieve universal healthcare.”

Obama knew back then that one cannot dive head first into the deep end. He knew the people would first have to dip their toes in the water – then step into the shallow end. Eventually the people would acclimate themselves to this new environment. Only then would they be willing to venture into deeper water.

It’s similar to the stepping stone of socialism. There really isn’t anything like permanent socialism. It’s just the bridge between freedom and communism or fascism. And unfortunately, the traffic on that bridge only travels in one direction – away from freedom and toward communism or fascism. I hate to say, but it’s kind of the natural order of things.  read more

Do Something Stupid – Don’t Be Accountable – Just Sue

Sunset Tiki Bar

The Galleon Resort and Marina in Key West has been in operation for more than 25 years. It’s a lovely place for a getaway. And as I can find, there has never been a lawsuit filed against the resort. Not for the food, the accommodations, accident or the like.

But that all changed in 2015. It all changed when Bob Barlow of Massachusetts, husband and father of two decided to celebrate his 40th birthday at the resort. The report claims that he went with friends, which implies his family was not there. Maybe it was some sort of mid-life crisis thing.

Things did not go as planned as Bob became paralyzed from the neck down during his trip. He filed suit against the resort and was just awarded $10.75 million.

That’s a lot of cabbage. He must have been severely wronged to warrant that kind of settlement. Well, not exactly. Actually, not even remotely.

Do you ever wonder why a ladder has about a thousand warning labels on it? It’s because people do stupid things and instead of blaming themselves for their stupidity, they sue the ladder manufacture, thus forcing the company to add yet another warning label. read more

Hooray! Hank Williams Jr Back on Monday Night Football

from Forbes:

Are you ready for some football? Apparently, Walt Disney-owned ESPN is again.

Six years after dropping Hank Williams Jr.’s adaptation of All My Rowdy Friends as the introduction to Monday Night Football, the sports network is bringing it back, beginning with the first MNF game this fall between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings.

“I think it’s a return to our past in that it’s such an iconic song associated with football,” ESPN senior vice president of events and studio production Stephanie Druley told The Tennessean. “It was the original. It belongs to Monday Night Football. It really is about returning to what fans know. It’s a Monday night party, and that’s what we’re all hoping to get back to.” read more

Students and Faculty Turn on Professor

from Heat Street: 

Snowflakes of Color

The faculty at Evergreen State College sent a letter to students Friday saying they stand behind the protesters who have wreaked havoc on the campus this week and plan to pursue disciplinary action against the target of their demonstrations, Prof. Brett Weinstein.

The Washington college of about 4,000 students erupted in protests last week after Weinstein, a biology professor, told student activists he did not agree with their “Day of Absence” plans. The Day of Absence usually consists of students of color leaving the campus for the day, to bring awareness to their presence and issues. This year, however, student activists wanted all white students and faculty to leave for the day. Weinstein, who supported the Day of Absence tradition in the past, called this year’s plan an act of oppression. read more
