Book Chronicling the Insanity to Stop Brett Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Hits #1, But the Media Are All Crickets. Coincidence?

As you may have heard via conservative channels, there’s a hot new book on the New York Times Best Seller list: Carrie Severino and Mollie Hemingway’s Justice on Trial chronicles the hysteria-soaked Supreme Court confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

Wanna tiptoe through the tulips of derangement? Here ya go:

There was certainly enough meat on that bone to fill a book — the abject insanity that surrounded the hearings was so bizarre that just thinking of it is making me need a nap.

Who also seems to have gone to sleep: the media.

The press hasn’t seemed interested in the book’s success, despite its place at #6 in the NYT rankings and its #1 snag on Amazon before it was even available.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, the book was released July 9th, and it’s been crickets over at CNN, MSNBC, the AP, The Washington Post, CBS, and NYT.

Perhaps the silence is explained by National Review’s write-up of JOT, the headline for which was “The Plot Against Kavanaugh.”

From their review:

Many of these accusations were disproved immediately, but only after the media breathlessly reported them as worthy of consideration. The Rhode Island accuser admitted the story was false after the FBI looked into it, and more followed suit once their stories were exposed as frauds. But others hung on, and the Ford letter became the focus. The authors’ recounting of the tedious negotiations between Ford and Grassley just to get her to appear recalls the tension of those weeks and take the reader back to the craziness of the time.

The interest groups, protesters, mainstream media, and many of the Democratic senators themselves joined in a campaign to speak directly to the voters about defeating Kavanaugh — or anyone else Trump nominated. It was reminiscent, in some ways, of Trump’s 2016 campaign, in which he talked past reporters to address the voters directly through social media. But the Democrats were aiming at the wrong target. Their scattershot blasts of anti-Kavanaugh messages energized their base, but that base had already had their say and would not vote again until November. Even the Democrats could not stretch things out that long.

Co-author Mollie lamented the lack of MSM coverage:

“The New York Times’ first mention of our exhaustively reported and heavily researched book about the most important thing that happened to the country last year was when they had to place us on their best seller list. It is a sad reminder that many in the media are not interested in journalism but progressive advocacy.”

The Examiner noted such media mumness isn’t new:

It is a typical story, however, for some conservative books. For example, conservative talk show host Mark Levin’s latest, Unfreedom of the Press, was also ignored by media big shots, but debuted as the New York Times No. 1 best seller.

If you’ve got the energy to relive one of the last decade’s most mentally ill chapters in American politics, get your copy of the hardcover here.

And when you can, by the way, shop Jet.com. They’re an alternative to Amazon, and they’re fantastic. Customer service = A+.

The New York Times Decides to Celebrate Soviet Diversity As Americans Celebrate Getting to the Moon

Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin E. “Buzz” Aldrin, the first men to land on the moon, plant the U.S. flag on the lunar surface, July 20, 1969. Photo was made by a 16mm movie camera inside the lunar module, shooting at one frame per second. (Nasa via AP)

This is so on brand that it’s scary.

Many Americans and the U.S. government are currently celebrating the incredible achievement of reaching the moon 50 years ago. It’s a testament to this country’s greatness, ingenuity, and uniqueness that we were able to accomplish such a feat with the technology of the time.

Now, to most people that’d be completely non-controversial.

The New York Times aren’t most people though.

In the bowels of scorching hot takes, this may be the hottest I’ve seen in some time. This is a level of wokeness that surpasses comprehension, where being anti-American is so paramount that the “paper of record” is now praising a murderous gulag state for supposedly beating us in the “space race for equality.”

This take would be bad enough on some random day in some random year. But the Times waits until Americans are celebrating being the first (and only) nation to get to the moon is to unleash this journalistic equivalent of dog poop on the world.

I’m trying to imagine what kind of person sits around in the midst of a unifying national event and instead frantically runs through ways to crap on their own country while uplifting a communist dictatorship. The glowing description of socialism in the article is simply laughable. Yes, a woman from the Soviet Union became an astronaut, but it was much more likely you’d end up slaving away in a factory or rotting in a gulag. Shouldn’t that be mentioned when extolling the virtues of the Soviets and their awful system? Never mind that the Soviet space program placed no value on human life, meaning that many of their “firsts” they finally accomplished came at the expense of many fried human beings beforehand.

Furthermore, this critique isn’t even true. The United States may not have sent the first woman into space, but we’ve had far more female astronauts over the course of our space program reaching far more milestones.

In other words, the Times was so desperate to trash America on what was supposed to be an apolitical event, they ignored every bit of context that disproved their ridiculous contention.

The line of attack is dumb anyway. America was not trying to win the meaningless race for diversity in space. We were trying to get the moon. That was the mission and we succeeded. The New York Times does a great disservice to the men and women who worked on the Apollo program by running this dumpster fire of a Soviet propaganda piece on a day set aside to honor their achievements.

I’d say the Times should be ashamed of themselves but given their history of fluffing communism, they clearly lack the ability to feel shame.

Anti-Semite Ilhan Omar Compares Jewish Israel to Nazi Germany

Westlake Legal Group ilhan-omar-stinkeye-620x317 Anti-Semite Ilhan Omar Compares Jewish Israel to Nazi Germany racist Politics Nancy Pelosi media bias Israel Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story double standards donald trump democrats Crazy bds antisemitism anti-semite

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., listens as Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Russell Vought testifies before the House Budget Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, March 12, 2019, during a hearing on the fiscal year 2020 budget. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

But do tell me more about the grave dangers of some randos chanting stupid crap at a Trump rally.

Ilhan Omar, apparently emboldened by recent events, decided it’d be a good idea to drop a resolution supporting the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement this week. That’d be the same BDS movement that even Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer directly called anti-Semitic just weeks ago.

While that would have been bad enough, she also decided it wasn’t insensitive and racist at all to use the resolution to compare Jewish Israel to (checks notes)…Nazi Germany.

This via the Washington Examiner.

Omar introduced a resolution Tuesday in support of groups wanting to boycott Israel while comparing them to the American Jews who boycotted Nazi Germany.

“Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights abroad, including … boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust,” the Minnesota Democrat’s resolution stated.

In the hearing, Omar also compared the boycotts of Israel to the Boston Tea Party.

Yes, that’s Omar directly comparing opposing Nazi Germany to opposing Jewish Israel, because they are pretty much the same thing right?

I mean, is there really a difference between a genocidial regime built on delusions of world domination and a small, democratic Jewish state that actually provides medical care for its adversaries and does everything it can to avoid collateral damage, even in the face of constant violent aggression? And it’s not like Nazi Germany sought to exterminate the Jews, necessitating the need for Israel.

Keep in mind, this is the same Ilhan Omar who called sanctions against a brutal dictator in Venezuela “bullying” and would lift sanctions on Iran tomorrow if she could. Yet, for some reason, her tactics toward Israel are different. Now, what could possibly be the distinction present driving her selectiveness in who she wants to boycott, divest, and sanction? Maybe some valiant media outlet should ask her.

This is blatant antisemitism on display. But no one outside of the right will care. The Democrats will excuse it, the media won’t even cover it, and the double standards will continue. If you care about people chanting at a Trump rally, you should care about Omar’s antisemitism.

If you don’t, you are being disingenuous and don’t deserve to have your outrage heard.

NBC Airs Bombshell Video Involving Jeffrey Epstein That Will Surely Take Down Donald Trump

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-07-16-at-1.54.41-PM NBC Airs Bombshell Video Involving Jeffrey Epstein That Will Surely Take Down Donald Trump Politics nbc MSNBC Morning Joe media bias Mar-A-Lago Journalistic Malpractice Jeffrey Epstein Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story fake news dumb donald trump desperation democrats bombshell Bill Clinton

Just a day ago, I wrote a piece on the near total blackout that began in the Jeffrey Epstein case the moment that Sec. of Labor Acosta resigned. He was the only real connection to Donald Trump, being one of the prosecutors involved in Epstein’s sweetheart deal a decade ago. Once he was gone, the media hook was gone because if it’s not anti-Trump, it’s not worthy of coverage. The media’s shift showed that this was never about caring for abused women or bringing Epstein’s possible cohorts to justice. No, it was about how much mileage they could get out of a story to snipe at the President.

Well, the blackout ended this morning but in doing so, the media only further proved my point.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” decided they had garnered a major scoop and played this video live for their viewers.

Yes, this video contains such criminal activity as dancing with women, laughing, and even pointing at things. There’s two shots showing Trump and Epstein speaking in the midst of what looks to be hundreds of other people. The claim of Trump getting “handsy” literally boils down to him dancing with very jubilant NFL cheerleaders in a perfectly normal, expected manner.

The dumbest part? This video is from 1992. Yes, that’d be 27 years ago, before Epstein was even known to have done anything illicit. So apparently, Trump is guilty of association because he couldn’t see into the future and know that Epstein would abuse women some years later. In fact, Epstein did not even own his “pedophile island” in 1992, nor are there currently any victims dating back to that time. There’s absolutely no reason to believe this video shows anything more than Trump socializing among New York high society.

Even more in Trump’s favor regarding this nonsense is that he banned Epstein from Mar-a-Lago the moment he found out he was harassing women. He also went to the police and the victim described Trump as helpful to her case. Does that sound like a guy who’s secretly in league with Jeffery Epstein? Of course it doesn’t, but the media don’t care. They have no standards. It’s just “orange man bad” all the time.

Honest question for MSNBC. How is this video supposed to even damage Trump? Because I’m thinking it may have the opposite effect.

You mean Trump partied with beautiful women? Surely, this will take him down.

As Ed Morrisey wrote over at HotAir this morning, this entire thing is just ridiculously stupid and should be embarrassing for NBC.

Trump’s party wasn’t news when A Closer Look covered it, but at least they knew that they were in the cheesy, celebrity-obsessed media industry. NBC treats this like it’s actual news, and that it actually proves something. They report on a conversation they can’t make out by transcribing what Trump “appears to say,” and the conversation isn’t worth transcribing in the first place. Two single men commenting on attractive women at a party? Telling a joke that makes the other laugh? Heaven forfend! It might be news to NBC, but two single men don’t even have to be acquaintances to have a conversation like that at a party, especially when one of them is the host.

News organizations have been trying like mad to tie Trump to Epstein, but this lame attempt is an embarrassment for NBC. The most damage they do to Trump comes from the shots of him dancing, which are … hilarious. (That’s also not unusual for single men at parties.) Are they trying at all to find evidence of Bill Clinton at one of Epstein’s parties on Pedophile Island? That kind of party appearance would actually mean something.

While it’s fun to joke around about how silly this all is, there’s something far more serious at play here that needs to be addressed.

We have actual people possibly implicated in Epstein’s crimes, including a former President named Bill Clinton who was on multiple flights with underage girls. Those would be the same girls who would later come forward as victims of sexual abuse. But the media are too busy digging up 27 year old, completely irrelevant videos of Donald Trump dancing badly. It’s not just ludicrous, it’s bordering on immoral because it’s letting some very bad individuals off the hook.

Has NBC done one investigative report on Clinton’s pervasive connections to Epstein? Have they even mentioned that a victim actually IDed him on Epstein’s island? Do they care that Clinton provably lied in his recent statement about how many flights he took with Epstein? Or that he lied about always having secret service with him at all times? Does none of that matter in comparison to flailing about in desperation trying to nonsensically tie this to Donald Trump?

It’s not just Clinton either. There is evidence of many other powerful figures who didn’t just happen to socialize with Epstein, but flew on his “Lolita Express” and visited his island. But the media simply don’t care because they aren’t Trump. They are letting possible child rapists slink into the background because they can’t let go of their Trump delusions for even a minute to actually do their jobs. That’s pretty disgusting.

The media don’t care about these women. All the morons on Twitter sharing Trump-Epstein hashtags don’t care about these women. It’s all about politics for them, even in the face of children being raped. That’s a level of depravity that deserves to be called out.

Yuuuuge NBC “scoop”: Trump and Epstein together in 1992 video

Westlake Legal Group trump-epstein Yuuuuge NBC “scoop”: Trump and Epstein together in 1992 video The Blog passport NBC News media bias Jeffrey Epstein donald trump

And … so? NBC News thinks it has uncovered video evidence that proves a relationship between Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, but it might only add to the evidence of their own desperation. They found an old clip of Trump welcoming Epstein to Mar-a-Lago in 1992 from an episode of the tabloid show A Closer Look, featuring it on the Today show and in a news bulletin headlined “Tape shows Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein discussing women at 1992 party.”

And … so?

Later in the footage, Trump is seen talking to Epstein and another man while they watch the women on the dance floor. Trump noted the presence of an NBC camera to Epstein, and both point out women, while Trump occasionally claps and dances to the beat.

Though exactly what they say is difficult to understand, Trump is seen gesturing to a woman and appears to say to Epstein, “Look at her, back there. … She’s hot.” Epstein reacted with a smile and nod.

Trump then said something else into Epstein’s ear that caused Epstein to double over with laughter.

But the president says now that he never liked Epstein.

Oooh, they’ve got him now … except that’s not actually what Trump has said about Epstein. He said that he knew Epstein from the Palm Beach scene and that they had a “falling out” fifteen years ago. The falling out has been already reported, and it involved Epstein’s apparent attempt to prey on teenagers at Mar-a-Lago about a decade after this party clip. Trump never claimed not to have been in the same room as Epstein or never to have talked with him at all, and we already knew that Epstein had been to Mar-a-Lago because Trump kicked him out in 2002. And having a “falling out” is at least a tacit acknowledgment of having at least a pleasant acquaintance with a person before that event.

Trump’s party wasn’t news when A Closer Look covered it, but at least they knew that they were in the cheesy, celebrity-obsessed media industry. NBC treats this like it’s actual news, and that it actually proves something. They report on a conversation they can’t make out by transcribing what Trump “appears to say,” and the conversation isn’t worth transcribing in the first place. Two single men commenting on attractive women at a party? Telling a joke that makes the other laugh? Heaven forfend! It might be news to NBC, but two single men don’t even have to be acquaintances to have a conversation like that at a party, especially when one of them is the host.

News organizations have been trying like mad to tie Trump to Epstein, but this lame attempt is an embarrassment for NBC. The most damage they do to Trump comes from the shots of him dancing, which are … hilarious. (That’s also not unusual for single men at parties.) Are they trying at all to find evidence of Bill Clinton at one of Epstein’s parties on Pedophile Island? That kind of party appearance would actually mean something.

The most interesting part of the NBC report, however, has nothing to do with Donald Trump but with Epstein’s false passport. His defense attorneys have an explanation for that, and … it’s not bad, although perhaps not convincing:

Attorneys for financier Jeffrey Epstein say he obtained a foreign passport under an alias in the 1980s to defend himself from potential kidnappers while traveling in the Middle East.

Epstein’s defense team filed court papers Tuesday saying Epstein worried about the perils he faced traveling there as “an affluent member of the Jewish faith.”

They say the passport expired more than 30 years ago and that prosecutors offered no evidence that Epstein ever used it.

It’s been less of a problem in recent decades, but in the 1970s and 1980s, abduction was no joke, especially for Jewish travelers. However, it still prompts the question as to why Epstein still has the long-expired passport, and why it was locked away in a safe rather than destroyed decades ago. Does Epstein still travel in ways that leave him vulnerable to abduction, or does he have his own jets and his own secure means of ground transportation? Judge Richard Berman might have trouble buying that story, but then again, he already has lots of reasons to deny Epstein bail and Epstein’s attorneys have nothing to lose with a little spin at this point.

CNN’s Brian Stelter Sees Epic Ratings Collapse Over the Past Six Months

Westlake Legal Group a2fe010c-d757-4860-9b67-f3b83bcaacb3-620x336 CNN’s Brian Stelter Sees Epic Ratings Collapse Over the Past Six Months Weebles viewership Tater Reliable Sources Ratings Collapse Politics media bias hack Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story dumpster fire CNN Brian Stelter

I knew CNN’s ratings were tanking, but my word at these latest numbers.

Brian Stelter, who fancies himself gatekeeper of the media sphere, spends his days obsessing over Fox News and ignoring all bad reporting and hackish behavior from his own network. He hosts a low-rated weekend show called “Reliable Sources,” where he claims to be an unbiased observer of media.

But when I say low-rated, even I was surprised at just how low. John Nolte compiled the two data points, but you can find the base numbers at the links below for verification.

Stelter, a left-wing conspiracy theorist who serves as a reactionary mouthpiece for his boss, Jeff Zucker, the far-left extremist responsible for running CNN into the ratings dirt, was at least able to average 967,000 viewers during the first four weeks of this year, from January 6 to January 27.

But during the four weeks that just passed —  from June 16 to July 7Reliable Sourceshas only been able to average 557,000 viewers.

That works out to be a whopping 42% drop in viewership in just six months. It’s hard to explain how just how awful that is. If CNN’s personalities were actually held to any real standards, Stelter would be staring at the unemployment line with a drop in audience like that.

But perhaps all cable news is doing badly and this is just a sign of a less engaged news media market over the past few months? Nah. For one, the news cycle is far more engaging right now than it was earlier in the year.

Secondly, here are Fox News’ numbers for their show “Media Buzz,” which is not only a time slot competitor to Reliable Sources, but also competes directly on content as a show reporting on the media.

During these last four weeks, between June 16 and July 7, MediaBuzz averaged more than twice as many viewers as Reliable Sources: 1.135 million compared to Stelter’s pathetic 557,000.

What’s more, during the first four weeks of the year, MediaBuzz averaged 1.372 million, which means MediaBuzz has only lost a negligible five percent of its viewers since the beginning of the year, which is a whole lot less than Stelter’s breathtaking 42 percent.

Just brutal for CNN and Stelter.

These people are only legends in their own mind. Their ratings continue to drop like a stone and they simply don’t have the influence they think they do. Imagining what their ratings would be without thousands of captive viewers within airports should be nightmarish for CNN’s top brass.

But they’ve decided it’s all about being anti-Trump at all times. So they’ll sit back and watch their ratings burn while hosting white nationalists to slap at Trump. There’s no integrity left at that dumpster fire of a network.

Desperate to Fill Anti-Trump Airtime, CNN Hosts White Nationalist Richard Spencer As a Pundit

Who thought this was a good idea?

In the aftermath of Trump’s comments targeting the self-described “squad,” the media have predictably lost their minds. They’ve never met a hand they aren’t willing to overplay and this is a perfect example of that. CNN’s desperation to fill airtime with nonstop anti-Trump rantings is so pervasive that they decided it’d be a good idea to invite on white nationalist Richard Spencer to play pundit.

This was done on Jake Tapper’s show.

Why do this? This answer is simple.

There is literally no angle out of bounds, no bridge too far that CNN won’t pursue if they feel they can use it take shots at Donald Trump. It’s a disease at this point. If that means bringing on Richard Spencer so CNN can then say “see, see, white nationalists loved Trump’s tweets!” then that’s what they’ll do.

Giving airtime to Richard Spencer is moronic and it shows there’s no line CNN won’t cross. You don’t give white nationalists a platform just to fulfill selfish partisan goals. An obscure, essentially irrelevant movement just got a shot in the arm because Jake Tapper couldn’t control his Trump delusion.

The biggest question here is why CNN even thinks this is relevant. After some blow back, Tapper responded with this tweet.

Why is their reaction relevant? Did Jake Tapper do a segment with David Duke after he praised Ilhan Omar’s anti-Zionism several months back? Oh, he didn’t? How odd. I mean, if it’s relevant today, why not then?

It is garbage journalism, and I’m constantly assured Jake is indeed a journalist, to try to tie your political opponents to unconnected parties just to slander them. What white supremacists think has nothing to do with Donald Trump, Republicans, or the vast majority of his voters. Furthermore, the media never hold Democrats to such standards. Rashida Tlaib can have a chief funderaiser who literally praises Hamas terrorists and CNN doesn’t say a world. Ilhan Omar can call U.S. troops “Satan” and there’s no interview on Jake Tapper’s show with jihadists to see if they agree with her.

But when Trump is involved, here’s CNN to trot out a racist to try to tie to all Trump voters. Just journalisming all over the place.

I’ll end by noting that Jake Tapper is not your friend. I realize a lot of right-wing pundits see him as the token good guy at CNN. He’s the guy they can banter with on Twitter from time to time and feel like they are part of the club. But he’s not a journalist. He’s a left leaning activist just like the rest of the anchors on CNN.

Right now, Tapper has doubled down on the appearance. We’ll see if he eventually admits what a monumentally stupid idea this was.

That Jeffrey Epstein Story Sure Died a Quick Death and the Reason Is Obvious

Westlake Legal Group jeffrey-epstein-mugshot-620x317 That Jeffrey Epstein Story Sure Died a Quick Death and the Reason Is Obvious sex trafficking Politics Pedophiles Newspapers Media Blackout media bias malpractice Little St. James journalism Jeffrey Epstein Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats CNN Bill Clinton

FILE – This July 27, 2006 arrest file photo made available by the Palm Beach, Fla., Sheriff’s Office shows Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein, a wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, has been arrested in New York on sex trafficking charges. Two law enforcement officials said Epstein was taken into federal custody Saturday, July 6, 2019, on charges involving sex-trafficking allegations that date to the 2000s. (AP Photo/Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office, File)

Last week, news was exploding about the arrest and subsequent charging of Jeffrey Epstein, a serial pedophile and sexual abuser who had previously been let off via a sweetheart plea deal back in 2007.

Epstein’s news making ability wasn’t just about his crimes though. It was about who he was connected too, namely much of the rich and powerful in New York. The most serious contact appears to have been with Bill Clinton, who not only traveled many times with Epstein, but was also fingered on his “pedophile island” in the Caribbean by a victim.

As I wrote last week, Clinton is absolutely the most implicated major figure here and every investigative reporter that has any integrity left should be digging deep on this topic.

Every investigative journalist worth their salt should be diving deep into the Clinton and Epstein connection because it’s a flashing red light right now. Instead, we get side-stepping pieces like this one from Vanity Fair riffing about fairly irrelevant connections to Trump while ignoring the most disturbing revelations. Whether they are meaning to or not, the media are helping to cover for some really bad actors by refusing to shift their partisan rancor and follow the evidence.

That was wishful thinking though. On Friday, I tweeted this out with all the cynicism I could muster, opining that now that Sec. Acosta (the only figure with any connection to Trump) had resigned, the story would die a quick death.

Was I right? Absolutely.

The story has vanished. It’s like it never happened. We went from wall to wall coverage to radio silence, with only a few buried pieces on his finances seeing daylight. As long as Sec. Acosta was still around, the media had their hook to tie this all to Donald Trump, despite him having no serious relationship with Epstein and any possible malfeasance by prosecutors occurring over a decade before his presidency.

But when Acosta resigned at the end of the last week, that was it. The hook was gone. They couldn’t readily tie it to Trump anymore so they dropped it. This despite the fact that we know Bill Clinton lied about his interactions with Epstein in his press release on the matter.

Has any mainstream media outlet followed up on this? Anyone questioned Bill Clinton in person? Staked his house out? Stalked him in public to make him answer? Would any Republican ever be left alone over something as sensational and disturbing as the revelations about Clinton’s connections to Epstein? Of course not.

We’ve got a former President implicated in a sexual abuse scheme, on the flight logs with the underage girls, and visiting an island known for its sex trafficking…and no one outside of right wing media cares. CNN isn’t talking about, nor the major networks or newspapers. It doesn’t even appear any of those outlets are looking into it. It’s a total blackout.

What this shows is that the media never really cared about the women who were abused. It was always just another way to slap at Donald Trump. When that was no longer possible, they moved onto the next Trump outrage. It puts the moral vapidness of their profession on full display.

Ayanna Pressley Goes On Racially Tinged, Homophobic Rant at Netroots Nation

Netroots Nation continues to not disappoint. We’ve seen all manner of crazy exhibit itself at the mainline progressive conference, from Ilhan Omar saying Palestinian opposition is “non-violent,” to an abortion being demonstrated on a watermelon.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley showed up as well to do the typical rah-rah liberal but this time it got a little out of hand.

Well, alright then.

Let’s game out some hypothetical. Imagine for a moment that this was a Republicans making such callous and dismissive remarks of minority groups. Let’s pretend it’s Ted Cruz at CPAC and he launches into a rant about how “we don’t need brown faces” and “we don’t need queers” who don’t ascribe to his exact political ideology. How would that be received? Would it be a major scandal? Would CNN’s Brian Stelter literally need smelling salts?

Heck, the phrasing alone would have been enough to garner at least 48 hours of indignation from the media if this were a Republican. “We don’t need queers?” I thought the Q word was off-limits for straight people? I mean, we just learned that a few weeks ago when Ben Shapiro got hit for logically proclaiming that he doesn’t understand the rules surrounding the word. Why is it acceptable for a straight woman to yell at gay men and women that she doesn’t need them if they don’t think like her?

Worse, she doesn’t think these brown, black, Muslim, and queer people should even have a voice in the conversation of national politics. That sounds pretty racist and homophobic to me if we are using the contemporary standards set form by modern society.

None of this sat well with some, for obvious reasons.

This is all especially ironic given the current outrage over Donald Trump’s latest tweet storm. We are currently in the middle of a full blown freak out of his supposed racism for sloppily attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “squad.” Wall to wall coverage is ensuing with the media demanding reaction from every Republican office holder down to your local dog catcher.

Meanwhile, a Democrat Congresswomen can tell entire races, as well as gay people and Muslims that she wants them to shut up and go away if don’t agree with her and it’s all good. No coverage. No outrage. Not even a question of whether her phrasing was off. It’s like it never happened.

This is why the latest demands to condemn Donald Trump will fall on mostly deaf ears. The left and their media enablers have spent decades building ridiculous double standards. These are the same people who couldn’t even be bothered to push back on Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic comments. But now I’m supposed to respond with righteous indignation of Trump and proclaim he’s a racist for simply being the bull in a china shop he’s always been? Yeah, sorry, not playing that game.

Netroots Nation, Headlined by Elizabeth Warren, Demonstrates a Do-It-Yourself Abortion On Stage

Netroots Nation is a gathering of crazies that happens each year where no idea is too liberal and no position is too insane.

Don’t kid yourself though, this is a mainstream Democrat conference that hosts the biggest names in the party each summer. The media treat it as mainstream as well, glowingly reporting on it in a way they never do regarding CPAC. This year Elizabeth Warren, who has managed to climb into 2nd place in the 2020 Democrat primary, headlined the event.

Given this is a “progressive” gathering, it’s a given that every single person in attendance, from the stage to the people who clean the bathrooms, is rabidly pro-abortion.

Even still, this is shocking.

Yes, that’s a woman gleefully demonstrating on a watermelon how a woman can give herself a do-it-yourself abortion at home. In her hand is some kind of device designed to do the procedure. She proclaims it’s “easy” and “not surgery.” This is happening on stage, in front of the same crowd the major 2020 candidates are speaking in front of.

The celebration of abortion in this way is just unfathomably evil and sick. This is a fetish to these people. It was just a decade or so ago that Democrats were insisting abortion should “safe, legal, and rare.” Now, they perform abortions on watermelons on stage. It’d be unbelievable if we weren’t all witnesses it play out so vividly.

But perhaps it’s best they are being honest now. Like the slavers who would take pleasure in abusing their victims, pro-abortion extremists seem to actually enjoy the idea of women killing their babies for sport. The audience and panelists are actually clapping and laughing as this woman explains a horribly inhumane procedure that takes another human life. The fact that we’ve arrived at such a depraved state as a nation still baffles me.

Meanwhile, the same media that will lose their minds over Donald Trump getting two scoops of ice cream will not even acknowledge this disgusting display took place. Instead, they’ll continue to mainstream the conference and pretend this is all perfectly normal.

One day, future generations are going to look back on pro-abortionists with all the disgust we now look back on slavery with. I just pray that future generation makes its appearance sooner rather than later.
