When the Left asks us to “turn down the rhetoric” what they really mean is SHUT UP!

After the horrific attack on Republican lawmakers earlier this week, two very familiar liberal narrative soon began. The first was, of course gun control. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe went straight to the Well of Failed Gun Control Solutions. Colion Noir took the governor to task

Noir is correct. Gun control is used by people with either no solutions, or people with no intentions to actually solve any problems. Never let a good crisis go to waste right Rahm Emanuel?

Not to be out done in the hyperbole game, the ladies of The View went on to pound their lecterns, with Sunny Hostin actually dismissing the notion that a right to self-defense existed in America

“Let’s talk about the Second Amendment,” Goldberg blurted out. “The Second Amendment is about a militia. That’s what it says!”

“That’s the time it was written,” Bila responded. “It’s the right to bear arms, to protect yourself and your family.”

Unable to hold her tongue, Hostin snorted, “Not to protect yourself and your family, that’s not what the Second Amendment is about.”

This is, of course a rare case of a member of the Cult of Gun Control letting their disdain of not only the right own firearms, but to most basic right of self-defense to show itself. Jenn Jacques, appearing on the Cam Edwards, took an opportunity to call out the ladies of The View and corrected some of their talking points. She also invited the cast of the View to attend a firearms training expo with her

Who wants to lay odds that this invitation goes for naught? The Left is generally not interested in reaching out or bridging gaps. They are far more invested in winning, period. We know the Left always talks of toning down rhetoric, and reaching across  the aisle, and coming together. But it is, sad to say, all talk. If the Left was truly serious about toning down rhetoric, then they would take a long look in their mirrors and stop their over the top attacks. They would cease and desist from calling Republicans, bigots, hate mongers, racists, sexists, and so on. They would stop their continuous diatribe accusing Conservatives of wanting to kill the elderly and sick by destroying health care. They would stop their insidious claims that the GOP wants kids to starve, the water and air to be polluted, and hates immigrants. The fact is this. the Left is divisive in everything they do. they have been invested in separating into groups for years and years now. They have been encouraging bitterness, division, and discord to gain political advantage for a long time. So, again, before anyone on their side of the fence start calling for civility, they need to clean up the pig sty that is their political house.

Perhaps when outlets like The Huffington Post start refusing to print hate pieces calling for the assassination of our president and GOP leaders, rather than retro-actively pulling them I might have more faith in their sincerity. Puma by Design, a fellow writer here at WOW! exposed the raw hatred HuffPo is trying to cover up

The final paragraph of HuffPo article should be more than enough to bring Fuller up on charges of treason:

Draining the swamp means not only ejecting Trump from the presidency, but also bringing himself and everyone assisting in his agenda up on charges of treason. They must be convicted (there is little room to doubt their guilt). And then — upon receiving guilty verdicts — they must all be executed under the law. Anything less than capital punishment — or at least life imprisonment without parole in a maximum security detention facility — would send yet another message to the world that America has lost its moral compass. In order for America’s morality and leadership to be restored, it must rebuke Donald Trump, his entire administration, and his legislative agenda in the strongest manner possible. And nothing would do more than to convict them of the highest offense defined by our Constitution, and then to deliver the ultimate punishment. Donald Trump deserves nothing less. Mitch McConnell, Steve Bannon, and Paul Ryan should also share Donald Trump’s fate, for they have done more than practically anyone to protect him and to throw our country under the proverbial bus. In order to survive, we as a nation must deliver the ultimate punishment under the law to all involved in its current destruction…

Of course it is not just Fuller, another HuffPo writer, Jesse Benn has some Tweets that might be a tad “over the top”. How about calling for riots

Remember the terrorist that slaughtered five Dallas police officers? Benn is down with him too it seems

Then there is Nancy “How Dare They” Pelosi

OH the sanctimony! 

So, if the Left does not really long for more civil discourse what do they want? In short they want to Conservatives, to shut up! That is it in a nutshell. What the Left desires is total political victory, period! Civil discourse? Sure, I am all for it, but, Conservatives, and the GOP need to understand this. No matter what we say the opposition will call it extreme rhetoric. It is what they do. It is a tactic to shame anyone opposing progressive goals into silence. 

UPDATE! Here is another outbreak of toned down Leftism

Via NJ 1015:

A longtime Democratic operative from Union County has responded to the Wednesday shooting of a congressman by calling for a “hunt” of Republicans.

James Devine posted several messages on Facebook and Twitter following the Alexandra, Virginia, shooting of U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise and several others by a gunman with a history of violence and of making online rantings against Republican officials and their policies.

“We are in a war with selfish, foolish & narcissistic rich people. Why is it a shock when things turn violent?” Devine posted on social media, ending the message with the hashtag: #HuntRepublicanCongressmen

“I have little sympathy for the Republican Congressman who got shot today because he viciously opposed President Obama’s effort to reduce gun violence and instead, he accepted more gun lobby money than all but 15 other members of the House of Representatives,” he said on Facebook.

The comments drew criticism from others who follow Devine on Facebook and Twitter.

But Devine told New Jersey 101.5 that he is not backing down, although he insists his comments were meant to shock but not advocate violence.

“It is insensitive and I don’t care. You want me to be politically correct? I don’t have time for that anymore,” he said.

What a class act, but his honesty is refreshing isn’t it? A Leftist being a violent Leftist

Failed comedian now playing the Victim Card

Kathy Griffin should know that when you speak out in wild ways, there will be backlash. So stop whining Ms. Griffin

Kathy Griffin and civil-rights lawyer Lisa Bloom came for Donald Trump Friday.

“I’m not afraid of Trump,” the 56-year-old comedian said. “He’s a bully. I’ve dealt with older white guys trying to keep me down my whole career.”

At a press conference, Griffin and Bloom addressed what they both view as a disproportionate response by the president and his family after she posed with a fake, severed Trump head for photographer Tyler Shields.

So she got herself a civil rights attorney and is crying like a little, well, you know? I suppose in Griffin’s world, she is allowed to pose with a fake severed head of the president, but he, or his family, are not allowed to hurt her feelings? Here is her bottom feeding attorney’s absurd take

The attorney continued, “The Supreme Court has ruled in a series of longstanding, bedrock cases that political satire is protected. The government cannot retaliate against citizens for it. That’s an important legal right that is now under attack, as journalists, networks and artists fear retribution from Trump and his administration. He is hoping for a chilling effect on artists like Kathy.”

The problem with that is that the government is not seeking retribution against Griffin. CNN fired her, but CNN is not the government. But, of course facts do not matter. The tactic here is to put as much emotionalistic rhetoric out there to make Griffin the victim.

Griffin is defending herself because, “if you don’t stand up, you get run over. What is happening to me has never happened in the history of this great country. A sitting president of the United States, his grown children and the first lady are personally, I feel, are trying to ruin my life forever.”

So, no one has ever, in the history of America, gotten backlash for comments they made? Good grief! The fact is this another tactic of the Left. They launch nasty verbal attacks, lie, smear, and of course bring out the lynch mob mentality for anyone that dares disagree, or defends their self. But when someone on the left gets some pushback? Then they cry about their freedom of speech being trampled.

To be clear no one is seeking to shut Kathy Griffin up. She pulled a publicity stunt, and offended many people, which is her right. But now she needs to stop whining and realize people who disagree with her also have freedom of expression and speech.

College campuses are becoming the new home of Fascism

Case in point Evergreen State College where a professor is under fire for calling out the Snowflakes Brown Shirts

Evergreen State College students have berated a professor and called for his resignation after he objected to an event where white students were asked to leave the campus for a day.

Bret Weinstein, a biology professor at the university, sent out an email criticizing the purpose of this year’s “Day Of Absence” event where, unlike in the past, white students and faculty members were asked to leave campus to give space to people of color.

Traditionally, the annual event is characterized by people of color leaving the campus to show their contribution to the campus, while white students and faculty members are attending anti-racism workshops.

“There is a huge difference between a group or coalition deciding to voluntarily absent themselves from a shared space in order to highlight their vital and under appreciated roles … and a group or coalition encouraging another group to go away,” Weinstein wrote in the email.

“I would encourage others to put phenotype aside and reject this new formulation … On a college campus, one’s right to speak—or to be—must never be based on skin color.”

The professors stand in opposition to racism and ignorance of course resonated with the students and they promised to grow up and stop pretending to be victims. Just kidding, they of course demanded Weinstein resign or be fired Here is a video of their ultra tolerant tantrum

Behold the sight of indoctrinated idiots. These students are not capable of civility, reason, or critical thinking. All they see to know is that if anyone, in any way, disagrees with them, then that person is racist/sexist/Homophobic, etc. That person, must resign, be fired, or targeted, literally, until they are no longer willing to stand up to these student bullies. And yes, bullies is the proper term to use. The end game for them is to crush every last shred of dissent. Their ideology, to be frank, is incompatible with Western values, and certainly incompatible with America’s fundamental embracing of natural rights. 

Jim Geraghty: So, when does the evidence of collusion get here anyway?

Accusations by Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself, is easy. Proving those accusations? Much harder!

Democrats are increasingly convinced that the seemingly endless storm of allegations around Trump will inevitably lead to his impeachment, and an impeachment that will come soon, not late in Trump’s first term. They’re convinced that evidence of Trump violating the law exists, and they’re convinced that the FBI or the investigating committees in Congress will find it.

Are any Democratic lawmakers starting to fear that they’re not going to find that evidence? The intelligence community is presumably always watching the Russian government as closely as they can. The FBI counterintelligence guys presumably track Russian agents on our soil as much as possible. You figure the NSA can track just about any electronic communication between Russians and figures in the Trump campaign.

If there was something sinister and illegal going on between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, the U.S. government as a whole had every incentive in the world to expose that as quickly as possible. They didn’t expose it before Election Day, they didn’t expose it before the Electoral College voted, they didn’t expose it before Inauguration Day… How many months have the best investigators in the United States been digging into this?

Imagine a scenario where the FBI and prosecutors eventually can prove some underling violated the law – obstruction of justice? Lying to investigators? — but not Trump. Will Democrats accept that? Pity the FBI and intelligence community. They have to get to the bottom of this in a world where just under half of Capitol Hill, most of the media, almost all of academia, a good portion of the think-tank world and “intellectual class” etc., believe that the real mission of the investigation is to “correct the error” of the 2016 election.

The media, and the Democrats, who are eager to delegitimize Trump, and his election will not allow something like lack of evidence deter them of course. the Left, remember, creates narratives. Narratives that do not live or die because of evidence or facts. These narratives, which are really nothing short of propaganda, are based on a false reality the left wishes to create to achieve a certain end. In this case the end is to deter Trump from achieving as much of his agenda as president as possible. Actual reality? Bah! The Left does not need any stinking reality! 

Leftism is an Ideology of hatred, intolerance and bigotry

There used to be a time when the Left allowed their masks of tolerance to slip, exposing the ugly truth about how hateful Leftism really is. These days, however, more and more Progressives are ripping those masks off and showing how ugly their souls really are. A case in point would be University of Hawaii professor Piper Harron, who wants all White, straight men, to kinda just go away

In a recent American Mathematical Society blog post—unsubtly titled “Get Out The Way”—University of Hawaii at Manoa “temporary assistant professor” of mathematics Piper Harron argues that white, cisgender males should immediately resign from their positions because “actual solutions require women of color and trans people.”

Odd this is. Consider the left always used to preach tolerance and equality, yet their message has evolved into nothing more than open bigotry based on gender, sexual orientation, and, of course race. And, oh yeah, Piper hates you White straight women too

She then goes on to assert that the only real solutions (to which problems, she does not specify) “require women of color and trans people,” clarifying that she means to exclude “white cis women” from that category.

“Having white cis women run the world is no kind of solution,” she declares, providing an unattributed graph purporting to show that 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

Piper does not stop there, oh no. She then pours out her hate on families, which are evil too it seems

 

In an effort to strengthen her case, Harron launches into a digression on how the traditional family structure is partly to blame for society’s inequalities, noting that “most of us have seen families where one person was allowed to be more human than the other, but because everyone was IN LOVE people had warm fuzzy feelings about the inequality.”

You can go read the whole screed, soak up the hate and stupidity people. It is crucial we all understand how twisted the Left is.
