ESPN Shows Media Double Standard

Both the Super Bowl winning Philadelphia Eagles and the NBA champion Golden State Warriors have opted not to visit president Trump at the White House. And Trump is okay with that. If they don’t want to be there, he doesn’t want them. Predictably the leftist media is hailing the two team decisions as some sort of triumph. But it wasn’t that way just a half a dozen years ago.

from The Right Scoop:

Here’s what ESPN said when a hockey

player protested the visit to OBAMA’S White House…

In case you wanted any more evidence of the double standard that ESPN has for the right and the left, someone dug up an article from years back where they absolutely slammed a white NHL player for protesting the visit to the White House – when it was Obama’s term. read more

Is Ocean’s 8 a Women’s Empowerment Statement or just Another Failed Reboot

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The movie “Ocean’s 8” debuted last night. I wrote this article last night, as movie-goers no doubt thronged to their local theaters, so I don’t yet know of the first night box office tally. But I’m certain the much anticipated all-female thriller/crime film raked it in. Or maybe it didn’t.

UPDATE: Well, it’s starting well. The movie took in $44 million in its opening.

Considering it only cost $70 million to make, I’m sure it will do fine. I mean, the first Ocean’s movie, “11,” cost $85 million and it was made 17 years ago, in 2001. Its box office take was almost a half a billion dollars worldwide. And that was a reboot of the 1960 original starring the Rat-Pack. Even with the 2001 star power, the reboot couldn’t match the cool of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Peter Lawford.

But why make this in the first place? Did the industry not learn anything from the disastrous female reboot of the all-Male Ghost Busters franchise? That bomb lost almost $75 million.

Although Ocean’s 8 may not lose money, I doubt it will be the surprise box office smash of the summer. I may end up being wrong, but I think that relatively few movie goers want to plunk down their cash to see a bunch of “empowered” women play at being men. read more

SPLC is the Arbiter of Acceptable Speech

Every position the Southern Poverty Law Center disagrees with is considered hate speech yet all these sites rely on them to determine was content is and is not acceptable. Ridiculous!

from the Daily Caller:

EXCLUSIVE: FACEBOOK, AMAZON, GOOGLE AND TWITTER ALL WORK WITH LEFT-WING SPLC

Four of the world’s biggest tech platforms have working partnerships with a left-wing nonprofit that has a track record of inaccuracies and routinely labels conservative organizations as “hate groups.”

Facebook, Amazon, Google and Twitter all work with or consult the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in policing their platforms for “hate speech” or “hate groups,” a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found. read more

Teacher Gets the Ax over a Name

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

A school teacher has recently been fired because he refused to call students by the name they prefer rather than their given names.

No, it wasn’t a case of Robert wanting to be called Bob, or Juliet wanting to be called Julie. That would have been simple. But it seems life in the public school system never is these days, even in a State like Indiana, which isn’t exactly considered as a hot-bed of leftism.

Yet, now Former Brownsburg High School orchestra teacher John Kluge, is without employment because he believes it’s wrong to call transgendered students by their “preferred” names, rather than the name which was given them at birth.

Yes – this is the soul reason why Kluge is unemployed, and now probably black-balled as a hater from seeking employment at any public school. read more

Amazon Makes Accommodations for Muslim Workers

As you read this, just imagine Amazon agreeing to build a permanent Christian chapel or scaled down Synagogue for Jewish employees.

Muslim workers at Amazon warehouse complain of ‘unfair’ and ‘dangerous’ workload during Ramadan

Dozens of Muslim workers protested outside of an Amazon warehouse center south of Minneapolis on Monday, voicing their concerns over workplace conditions during Ramadan, Islam’s holy month.

What is going on?

According to WCCO-TV, the workers at the Eagan facility claim their rigorous workload is “unfair” and “dangerous.” That’s because during Ramadan, which ends mid-June, Muslims are required to fast during daylight hours, meaning they are unable to eat or drink. read more

Prequel Solo is Fun Without all the Social Justice

from the Daily Wire:

A Different Perspective: ‘Solo’ Is A Great ‘Star Wars’ Movie That Mocks SJWs

Despite galactic shortcomings at the box office – with headlines like: ‘Solo’: How Big a Box Office Dud Is the ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff?, How can Star Wars get back on track after Solo’s disappointing debut?, or ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ falls far short of box-office expectations – Disney delivered a fast-paced, (mostly) well-written westernesque action flick detailing the dawn of the universe’s most notorious pilot, Han Solo, and his hirsute companion, Chewie.

Anti-gun Political Correctness Imperils Monument to Medal of Honor Recipient

As difficult as it may seem, anti-gun tactics have reached a pathetic new low. We regret to report that some on the anti-gun left, in their fanatical intolerance of all things firearms, now find it acceptable to attack monuments honoring World War II Medal of Honor recipients.

Grand Island, N.Y. is home to Charles N. DeGlopper Memorial Park. The memorial honors the city’s hometown hero, who posthumously received the Medal of Honor for his valor during the invasion of Normandy. read more

What do man-babies and Starbucks ‘safe spaces’ say about America? Mike Rowe explains

Mike Rowe examined two popular recent stories, the change in policy at Starbucks coffee shops, and a 30-year-old man who refused to leave his parents’ house, and found something illuminating in common with them.

Here’s what Rowe said

“Starbucks announcing you no longer have to buy anything to lounge around its stores or use the bathroom, meanwhile 30-year-olds are suing to stay in their parents’ basements,” asked Tucker Carlson. “Are these stories connected? Do they tell us something bigger about where the country is going?” read more

Candace Owens Explains how to use the Black Card

Black conservative (what’s that) commentator Candace Owens took to Prager-U to explain just what the Black Card is and how it has been properly used over the decades. It is an invaluable tool used exclusively by people of color to advance the liberal agenda while enriching themselves. All the while claiming to have suffered oppression of some sort.
