Leftist Radicals Just Want to Watch the World Burn

As the president pointed out in his latest press conference, the original group that was protesting the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue actually had a permit to assemble and did so peacefully. The leftist/Marxist radicals did not obtain a permit.

Now I don’t care who you are. If you assemble peacefully and conduct yourself accordingly – you can be Communist/Marxist radicals or fascist skin head, neo-Nazis. Who cares. But when you cross the line and descend into violence, it should matter who you are.

As Tucker Carlson pointed out on his Tuesday evening Fox News program, it evidently it does matter who you are, or with what wacko group you belong.

Many of us witnessed the outrageous behavior in Durham, NC, of the black lady climbing a ladder to place a lanyard around a Civil War soldier’s memorial. The crowd had no permit, no permission to even be there, much less the authority to pull down the statue, however offensive they all of the sudden thought it to be.

I say all of the sudden, because a lot of these statues have been on display for a century or so, and no one said boo. Not blacks or whites – left or right. Now we’re expected to believe that a mass consciousness awakening has spontaneously occurred like so many newborn puppies opening their eyes for the first time. read more

Fox News Eric Bolling – Next Up Victim or Smarmy Dirtbag

by: the Common Constitutionalist

**UPDATE**

Eric Bolling has been suspended from Fox News – but that still doesn’t make him guilty. Of course, it doesn’t mean he’s innocent either.

So the leftist hit squad is after another of the Fox News on-air stars. This time it’s Eric Bolling. Why are they doing it? At first blush one would simply conclude, and rightly so, that Bolling is an Ever-Trumper. No – not a never-Trumper – a died-in-the-wool Trump supporter. He is also one of the more popular Fox News stars. That’s enough to put him the left’s hit-list.

And after they were able to successfully oust big-gun Bill O’Reilly, I believe they have the confident to think they can take down virtually anyone.

But is the Huffington Post report that Eric Bolling texted a picture of what they describe as “male genitalia” just another hit piece, like the one done on Bill O’Reilly, to attempt to knock Fox down further? Or is the HuffPo piece just investigative journalism?

Okay, you can stop laughing. I know – actual investigative journalism went the way of the Dodo decades ago it seems. Particularly regarding leftist journalists (redundancy alert) “investigating” anyone left of center. Now it’s just one “gotcha” piece after another. But I suppose when you have exactly zero positive news coming out of your own camp, what else is there left for them to do.

Not that it matters, and it’s gross either way, but HuffPo doesn’t state that its Bolling’s junk – just that the text messages sent were of “male genitalia.” I can’t really even believe I’m writing about this. read more

NFL Quarterback has no one to Blame but Himself

Once again, football season is upon us. Hooray! I can take off my blacking armband, signifying my mourning of the end of last

season, as we all gear up for the next.

My New England Patriots reported in yesterday to begin 2017 training camp, as did many other teams, and the Hall of Fame game is now only a week away.

This is time of year when all teams are equal – although some are a lot more equal than others. Every team is undefeated – all the big name free agents have been snapped up, and fans are excited to see what their teams’ new acquisitions are capable of.

However, there is a once-marquee player who is still unemployed. That is of course the former star quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick. The once stud signal-caller who guided his team to the playoffs, and a Superbowl just a few years (okay – it was five), has now become pro football’s number one outcast. read more

There are no Rules When You’re Being Attacked

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In war, or frankly any military engagement, there are Rules of Engagement (ROE). If there weren’t, things would descend into a chaotic free-for-all. However, one of these rules, which I find particularly abhorrent, is the “don’t fire unless fired upon,” rule. I don’t know what idiot came up with it, but it’s gotten a lot of our boys killed.

I suppose some nimrod, or group of nimrods, decided that this is how we set ourselves apart from and above the savages we are/were fighting. While attempting to remain “civilized” is an admiral goal, it often does not translate to the real world – either on the battlefield or the streets.

How many times have you heard dialogue in some action movie, where one of the stars turns to the other and says, “Johnny – if you do such and such, you’re no better than they are.”

It’s a wonderful sentiment which reinforces most of our desires to be the good guy in the white hat that rides in and saves the day. For in those scenarios, we always want to eventually see the good guy win and the bad guy get it in the end. Yes, we want to see the bad guy get it, but in a righteous way, so the good guy’s image is not tarnished, and we can continue to feel good about him. read more

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
