Kira Davis: Abortion Is Not a “Gift” To The Black Community

Last night was the CNN “Climate Town Hall” and it was interminable. I could only bring myself to tolerate a few candidates. I caught the end of Klobuchar and then watched a bloody-eyed Biden ramble through explaining his connections to Big Oil donors. The audience was there for Bernie and Warren and they were only there for Bernie and Warren.

It was the usual climate talk, but what struck me the most was when Bernie Sanders responded to a question about population control. Without hesitation or any sense of self-awareness, Sanders offered up abortion in third world countries as a necessary and legitimate solution to overpopulation.

It was chilling.

In my latest podcast Just Listen to Yourself, I’ve been going through abortion arguments and talking points related to the issue and drawing them out to their logical conclusions. I’m fascinated by the idea of actually parsing out some of our reflexive opinions. In the third and final episode of a series on abortion (published mere moments before Bernie took the stage), I spoke about the argument the progressive left often makes for abortion as a form of “care” for minorities, Black Americans specifically. They often paint opposition to abortion as some form of bigotry.

I find the premise ridiculous. Forget the arguments about Margaret Sanger and the racist roots of Planned Parenthood for just one moment. If you’re curious about what I have to say about that, click on the podcast and you can hear me discuss it at length.

When abortion is painted as charity for a minority/marginalized community, what Bernie and other abortion advocates are telling us is that the world would be better off without us…or at least be better with fewer of us. It blows my mind that any serious, White American could look at Black women and say, “Hey, it’s better for all of us if there are fewer of you. It’s for your own good!”.

And too many of us actually buy it! Then we turn around and complain that we don’t have enough representation in the institutions that make America run. We are literally killing off our political capital. Black women make up 6% of the population and yet account for 35% of abortions. Maybe Planned Parenthood did evolve away from Margaret Sanger’s original mission, but it sure seems pretty damn successful anyway.

Abortion is not a “gift” to the Black community. Abortion steals our capital, our influence and our future. Sometimes it’s hard to feel like that’s not deliberate.

Black Republican Terrence K. Williams Goes Off On Debra Messing

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-1-620x481 Black Republican Terrence K. Williams Goes Off On Debra Messing Terrence K. Williams republicans racism Politics Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats debra messing black community Allow Media Exception 2020

The tired and abused lie that the Republican Party is a party of racism and keeping minorities down has been disproven so many times that it’s a wonder it still thrives. This is, in part, thanks to a media that keeps the lie fresh in the minds of the public, and even makes any minuscule thing out to be a grand racist act.

Take, for instance, the Baltimore controversy where President Donald Trump highlighted the rat and trash infestation the city suffered from. While Democrats made carefully shot speeches about how Trump and Republicans are racist, Trump supporters went down to Baltimore to help clean it up.

(READ: Trump Supporters Clean Up West Baltimore As Thankful Residents Defy Media Narrative)

Hollywood celebrities are also in on the narrative, too. Debra Messing, one of Hollywood’s most vocal anti-Trump twitter accounts, has gone so far as to say that Trump is a white supremacist who is attempting to suppress “POC” and Jewish peoples. Funny enough, the only person insulting black Americans is Debra Messing.

The actress, in a now-deleted tweet, said “THANK YOU #Alabama” last Saturday in response to a tweet of a Baptist church in Birmingham that displayed a sign reading: “A black vote for Trump is mental illness.”

Terrence K. Williams, a black Republican, became upset at Messing for this incredibly racist remark that essentially put black voters into a column of either belonging to Democrats or being mentally unfit.

In a video where he was clearly very angry, Williams told Messing that, as a black man, he can think for himself and that the Democrat party doesn’t own him. He also made it clear that Messing was out of line for suggesting Hollywood players voting for Trump should be put on a blacklist.

“Why are you targeting innocent Americans? What is wrong with a bunch of American citizens supporting the President of the United States of America. What is wrong with that?”

“You have lost your ever-lasting mind,” said Williams.

Messing replied to Williams saying she regretted promoting the Alabama sign, but that Trump was a white supremacist targeting people of color and Jews. She then also said that she has never supported a blacklist.

This is demonstrably false. As I wrote on yesterday, Messing and her “Will and Grace” co-star Erick McCormack clearly supported the idea of a Hollywood blacklist as they asked for The Hollywood Reporter to compile a list of people going in and out of a Trump fundraiser in Beverly Hills so that “the rest of us” know not to work with them again.

Messing and McCormack attempted to do some damage control by denying that they’re to create a blacklist without providing any real defense of it, instead, saying she has a right to not work with people. She’s not wrong, but as McCormack pointed out, the list was intended for public release so that everyone else in Hollywood would know to avoid working with them.

That’s called a blacklist.

(READ: Debra Messing Thinks You’re Stupid)

Williams wasn’t done. In response to Messing trying to lazily convince Williams that Trump hated minorities and Jewish people, Williams posted a video an entire room filled with black Republicans, many of them wearing MAGA hats.

Messing, like Alyssa Milano and Bette Midler, all fire from the hip when it comes to their hatred of Republicans and Donald Trump, often tweeting before they think. Middler was recently in hot water for a racist moment similar to Messing. Seeing black people in the background of a shot from a Trump rally, Middler dismissed them as paid actors and referred to them as a “blackground.”

Middler’s stereotyping black Americans as Democrat voters made many black Americans very angry, and she soon deleted the tweet.

All of this stems from the idea that the black community is somehow owned by the Democrat party, with many Democrats making the argument that a minority voting for a Republican is voting against their self-interest. As such, many black Republicans and libertarians have been labeled as “Uncle Tom” or “House Ni****s” by the left.

Democrats seem to forget that black people are individuals, not a voting bloc to be claimed.

Julian Castro Saves the World, One Psychotic Problem at a Time. Previously: Pregnant Men; This Week: Racist White Weather

You know what the most terrible kind of environmental horror is? The racist kind.

And you know how to make racism worse? Make it environmental.

I can barely believe those two things can even go together. Someone needs do somethin’.

I cherish my sigh of relief, knowing Julián “Men need to have taxpayer-funded abortions” Castro has volunteered.

Shew.

During CNN’s town hall Wednesday, a male nurse in the audience claimed his patients “suffer the most from climate change” as victims of “environmental racism.”

Fortunately, Julián was already all too familiar with the malady. So he jumped right in.

With dumbness.

And — as a bonus — he included the 1940’s viewpoint that there are only two races: white and non-white (currently “people of color”).

“I know that too often times it’s people who are poor, communities of color, who take the brunt of storms that are getting more frequent and more powerful.”

So if a Chinese guy moves into a white Texas neighborhood, his house will be targeted by the cyclone? What a racist jerk of a tornado.

Thankfully, that poor Saginaw soul — a very distant relative of a native Beijinger — can rest easy.

Say it, Julián:

“My plan actually calls for new civil rights legislation to be able to address environmental injustice.”

YES!!!!

And woe unto that afflicted Asian, by the way, if he might also be impregnated through his penis and need an abortion. Oh, wait — Julian’s got him there, too!

Castro also let everyone know he can “connect the dots to places like Flint, Michigan,” and he’s intent upon giving folks the “tools to fight back” where the “tremendous injustice” of environmental racism is concerned.

God Bless Julián Castro — a great American. And a man who seems fiercely determined to stay humble by never, ever becoming the President of the United States.

WATCH: Black Republican Shows Up at Democrat Protest and Demands they Pay Reparations

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-620x373 WATCH: Black Republican Shows Up at Democrat Protest and Demands they Pay Reparations republicans reparations racism Race Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats black community baltimore Allow Media Exception

The concept of reparations is beyond ridiculous. It’s the idea that people who never owned slaves should pay people who never were slaves in order to make up for the wrongs done to people who aren’t around anymore by people who are just as dead.

(READ: No American Owes A Dime In Reparations)

Still, many on the left demand reparations are paid to black Americans despite the logistical impossibilities and moral conundrums.

This is why one black Trump supporter decided to see if he couldn’t make the left put their money where their mouth is. Heading to Grand Central Station in NYC, he held up a Trump 2020 sign and began telling the white leftists in the area that it’s time to pay up, not because he wants their money, but because they said he deserves it.

“I will immediately turn it over to the Trump campaign,” the man said. “I don’t want your money.”

“You say I deserve reparations. White liberals and Democrats, pay up!” he continued. “Pay up because you told me I deserve reparations. I did not ask for it. They told me that to buy my bote, but you won’t get my vote. My vote is going here, to Trump 2020.”

“Put your money in my bank account and you will be healed,” he added.

Unsurprisingly, not one of the white leftists in the room gave him any money. In fact, one of them who was wearing a black mask told him to “f*** off” as she walked by him.

It was definitely a provocative stunt, but the point is pretty solid. For all the alleged guilt white people are supposed to feel, I don’t see them offering up their personal money to the cause. It’s been all about making it a mandatory government action.

That doesn’t say a lot about their convictions. In fact, if anything, it points to the fact that they don’t really believe it at all and are just trying to buy the votes of the black community as this man said.

Funny enough, if you look at the pattern of how the Democrats have treated the black community, you can quickly see that they don’t necessarily care about the black community all that much. During the 2016 elections, the Democrats were all about the plight of the black community. Now they seem to have shrugged them off in favor of illegal immigrants.

(READ: Do Black Lives Not Matter Much To Democrats Anymore?)

In fact, after the controversy with President Donald Trump highlighting the horrible rat infestation and trash problem in Baltimore, the Democrats were content to just call Trump and the Republicans racist while it was Trump supporters who actually went down there to help out. Even as Democrats tried to create a media spectacle, black Baltimore residents were shouting down Democrats. This was not shown by the mainstream media, who ignored their voices.

For Democrats, the black community is a useful tool, not a people.

Andrew Gimson’s PMQs sketch: Johnson sets out to infuriate his opponents

Impudent provocation at every opportunity, producing icy contempt and hysterical denunciations of Dominic Cummings, to a background of cheers, jeers and incredulous laughter.

This was Boris Johnson’s approach at his first Prime Minister’s Questions, which might also be his last. He took no time to get his eye in, but from the first moment set out to infuriate his opponents.

Jeremy Corbyn was dismissed as a “chlorinated chicken” who is “frit” of a general election and leaves his MPs to be “hounded out by anti-semitic mobs”.

Corbyn became angry, raised his game, but could not break the Prime Minister’s flow. Nor could anyone else.

The temptation, faced by a figure like Johnson, is to engage in moral condemnation. His cavalier behaviour seems, to those of a puritanical, roundhead temperament, to place him beyond the bounds of civilised debate.

The most effective attempt at condemnation was made towards the end of PMQs by Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi (Lab, Slough), a Sikh wearing a red turban, who called on the Prime Minister to apologise for “derogatory and racist remarks” comparing “already vulnerable Muslim women” who wear a hijab to “bank robbers and letter boxes.”

This heartfelt attack produced a prolonged outbreak of clapping on the Opposition benches. But from Johnson it produced the rejoinder that the article in question was “a strong liberal defence of everybody’s right to wear what they want”, and the observation that we now have “the most diverse Cabinet in the history of this country”.

There is no doubt that some of Johnson’s opponents take satisfaction in dismissing him as a racist and indeed as totally untrustworthy.

But this pleasant feeling of moral superiority could lead them to neglect the need to counter Johnson’s argument that he is fulfilling the British people’s instruction, given in the EU referendum, to carry out Brexit, while his opponents seize every opportunity to thwart it.

They might ask themselves why he is so determined to enrage them. Could it be that he wants to distract them from replying to his arguments, by offering them the more tempting target of his character?

AOC Fights the Racism of Heterosexuality, Bails Out Antifa, and Buries Her Virtue So Deep Jacques Cousteau Couldn’t Find It

On Saturday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went to bat for battiness.

As I covered on the 31st, Boston’s Straight Pride Parade flexed its feathers despite protests (here).

Oddly, some accused parade participants of bigotry.

Witness an ode to contemporary idiocy: A group of people tries to shout down a point of view as they accuse others of “bigotry,” which means “intolerance for an opposing view.”

But this is where we are — as I stated recently (here), words no longer mean anything.

Apropos, on the scene were individuals reportedly identified with Antifa.

From USA Today:

Protesters, including many who identified with the anti-fascist group Antifa, shouted “Nazi scum!”

Huh??

And as per The Boston Herald:

“We’re covered in black so when we attack these guys we can’t be prosecuted,” said Jon Crowley, an Antifa member who told the Herald that he felt violence was the only way to deal with the people marching in the parade, which went from Copley Square to City Hall Plaza. “They are fascists, 100%. How else are you going to get them to shut up?”

Some goons got pinched and thrown in the clink.

According to previously brain-bashed conservative journalist Andy Ngo (here), a number of those arrested were guilty of assault and battery on police officers:

Luckily, the ‘rested ralliers have a friend in Washington — cowfart fighter AOC is here to make it A-Okay.

Hence this:

“One way to support the local LGBTQ community impacted by Boston’s white supremacist parade? Contribute to the Bail Fund for the activists who put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community.”

I dare you to make sense of that.

Twitter tried:

Unlike Antifa, one tweeter owns a dictionary:

Sydney Watson had a question:

The Daily Caller was scratching its head, too:

The Caller reached out to Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s office to ask why she is supporting individuals who openly planned violence and allegedly assaulted police officers, but received no comment.

Antifa groups across the United States have engaged in violence with many conservatives and journalists in general in recent years.

Aw, cut the black-masked, violent living embodiments of irony some slack; as Don Lemon’s said of Antifa, “No organization is perfect.”

Alexandria is right: It’s time for America to come together and fight the white supremacy of heterosexuality on display (which, to me — incidentally — is silly).

Thankfully, as for the “LGBTQ community impacted” by the parade, they were fully represented — by Grand Marshal Milo Yiannopoulos:

Baptist church sign: Black Trump voters are mentally ill

Westlake Legal Group Trump715FreedomFaithRallyDC7-1-17 Baptist church sign: Black Trump voters are mentally ill The Blog separation of church and state racism President Trump Pastor Michael Jordan New Era Baptist Church Birmingham baptist Alabama

New Era Baptist Church’s pastor, Michael Jordan (no, not that Michael Jordan) is defending a controversial anti-Trump message displayed on the church’s front lawn. Instead of welcoming worshipers or offering information on church service times, the church’s double-sided sign delivers a punch. One side diagnoses black Trump voters as mentally ill – and the other side declares that white Trump voters are racist.

The church is located in Birmingham, Alabama and Pastor Jordan is African-American. His message is, “Please do not vote for Donald Trump.” He told a local reporter that if a black voter “believes in equality, who believe in the redistribution of wealth, who believe in earned income equality” and votes for Trump, the voter is suffering from mental illness. Jordan calls President Trump a racist and a bigot and bashes his administration, too.

Jordan says he has been the church’s pastor for 27 years. If you click on the tweet and listen to all of the video clip you will hear that the pastor gets some facts wrong but his message is clear, especially as he calls the president a Klu Klux Klansman, for example. He is interrupted by a young white man who asks if he knows he is violating federal law with his political message. He goes on to read the tax code for tax-exempt churches. The young man also takes credit for the reporter being there interviewing Pastor Jordan. Apparently, he reported the sign to the local news outlet. Pastor Jordan calls the young man a bigot and a “Klu Klux Klan descendant”. Yikes.

“God motivates me to take a stand. We have normalized racism”, Jordan tells the reporter when asked why he is creating such a controversy. The video devolves into the pastor, two black men, and the white man yelling at each other over racism. One black man says he isn’t a Trump voter but the church sign’s message is racist and wrong. It all gets pretty tedious. Clearly no minds are changing during the dialogue.

It’s bad enough the liberties that politicians have taken as they campaign in churches and are given opportunities to speak during church services. It is equally bad for a pastor to promote his own political agenda to the public. Surely this is a violation of the tax code and the tax-exempt status of this church should be reviewed.

Guess who really likes this ugly divisive speech? Hollywood’s Debra Messing. She is one of the stars of Will and Grace. Not only did she weigh in with her agreement that Trump supporters must be outed by The Hollywood Reporter after fellow cast member Eric McCormack tweeted his demand for a return of McCarthyism in Hollywood, but she jumped right on this controversy, too. After the Chairman of the Democratic Coalition (We help run #TheResistance) and former Obama campaign chairman tweeted about the church’s sign, Messing chimed in.

The left is so sensitive that any difference of opinion is simply not tolerated. The election of President Trump broke many people and Trump Derangement Syndrome is alive and well as we approach the 2020 presidential election. I don’t recall these kinds of stories when the previous administration enforced border security laws or deported millions of people during their time in office.

President Trump’s administration has created an atmosphere for economic success across the board, across all demographics. African-American unemployment is at an all-time low. The same goes for Hispanic employment and youth employment. Criminal justice reform directly affects incarcerated African-Americans. Trump has reached out to minority voters more than past Republican candidates did. Remember when he asked “What the hell do you have to lose?” of black voters?

No one thinks the majority of African-American voters will change party loyalty. Democrats have kept their support for decades with divisive rhetoric because it benefits the party. Without African-American voters, Democrats cannot win elections. Pastor Jordan is using a very old Democratic playbook in a political cycle. He deflects his racist views onto someone else, in this case the President of the United States. This isn’t the first time the pastor has shown his own racism.

“God motivates me to take a stand for what’s right,” New Era Baptist Church’s pastor, Michael Jordan, told WTVM 13. “Read the Bible. And look in the White House. If they’re calling me a racist, look in the White House.

This isn’t the first time that Jordan has used the church’s signage to speak out. In 2018, after a suburban megachurch planned to open a satellite in Birmingham to combat crime, Jordan erected a sign that read “Black folks need to stay out of white churches.” The sign sparked a social media outrage and earned a rebuke from Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin (D).

If Pastor Jordan doesn’t think black folks should worship in white churches, I wonder what kind of litmus test he uses for the political affiliation of his church flock. It sure sounds like he is consumed with political ideology at the expense of religious doctrine.

Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a campaign event at Keene State College in Keene, N.H., Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer)

Just a few days ago, I wrote about an absurd “fact check” done by the geniuses at Politifact on Joe Biden and his repeated claim that President Trump had never denounced white supremacists David Duke and Robert Spencer.

As I noted at the time, Biden’s claim should have been rated “pants on fire” false because Trump had done both, but it was only given a “mostly false” by Politifact because Trump had never mentioned Spencer by name and because of Trump’s comments about the Charlottesville riots (which they wrongly mischaracterized).

Unfortunately, it’s not the first time they’ve gone to bat for the Democratic presidential frontrunner this month. They also wrote about a photo that has been circulating on Facebook of Biden and the late Sen. Robert Byrd. Here’s the photo:

Thoughts?

Posted by Enlisted Nine Fight Company on Friday, August 9, 2019

After noting that the photo, taken in October 2008, was authentic, here’s what they ruled (bolded emphasis added):

The Facebook post claims that Joe Biden was photographed with Robert Byrd, Grand Wizard of the KKK. That exaggerates Byrd’s role in the KKK.

In the 1940s, Byrd organized and led a local Klan chapter as its Exalted Cyclops, but he wasn’t a Grand Wizard. And he ultimately renounced his views from that period of his life though his past and former ties to the KKK were raised throughout the rest of his life.

By the time this photo of Byrd and Biden was taken, Byrd’s public expressions of regret and shame over his earlier involvement in the KKK was well-documented and often-repeated.

We rate this Facebook post Mostly False.

What they didn’t note was that as of 2001, though Byrd was no longer a member of the KKK he was still using the “n” word.

What is true is that Democrats started the KKK. What is true is that Democrats opposed civil rights legislation for black people up until the late 1960s. What is true is that Biden considered Byrd a friend.

It doesn’t make Biden a racist, of course, but what they fact checked is whether or not Byrd was as high up in the KKK as a Grand Wizard, which is an irrelevant distinction in the scheme of things as it relates to his involvement and praise of the racist group.

It’s almost as if they were insinuating that even if Byrd were still a member of the KKK, he didn’t rise to the level of Grand Wizard, which would mean Biden’s relationship wit him was not as shocking as it might have seemed or something.

Crazy.

    Cadbury Lays An Egg With Introduction Of New ‘Unity’ Bar, Meant to Encourage Diversity

    Westlake Legal Group racism-2099029_1280-620x310 Cadbury Lays An Egg With Introduction Of New ‘Unity’ Bar, Meant to Encourage Diversity racism Popular Culture Front Page Stories Featured Story Culture Cadbury's New 'Unity' Bar Allow Media Exception

     

    Cadbury has introduced a new candy bar which they believe will promote diversity. The “Unity” bar (pictured below) contains four different types of chocolate. Cadbury describes this limited edition bar as “the first bar with dark, blended, milk and white, united in one bar.”

    The new product was launched in India earlier this month to celebrate the country’s “Independence Day on August 15.” In their product announcement, Cadbury wrote: “This Independence Day, let’s celebrate a country that stands united in its diversity.”

    The package shows people of various races holding hands in “unity.”

    Cadbury appears to have laid an egg with this new offering; they have received both criticism and ridicule.

    The company has been accused of trivializing racism. Some consumers were outraged and “criticized the firm for making light of a serious issue.”

    One columnist wrote, “Congratulations to Cadbury for solving racism.” A student remarked, “Cadbury ending racism one chocolate bar at a time…”

    Here are some of the reactions to Ad Age’s announcement for the new candy bar on Twitter:

    Who was at the decision table when this was made?

    Wow thank you for solving racism with this brave candy bar.

    Racism has been solved.

    A spokesperson from Cadbury’s advertising agency, Ogilvy, told Fox News: “India is a diverse country, with people of different castes, creed, languages, regions, religions…Everyone living together, but not always with love. Cadbury Dairy Milk, which is loved by everyone, wanted to send a powerful message of unity.”

    CNN political commentators April Ryan (l) and Angela Rye on “New Day” – 8/26/19. Screen grab via CNN (h/t Newsbusters).

    As Kira Davis wrote earlier today, the reports from supposedly reputable media outlets that President Trump suggested “nuking” hurricanes to keep them from hitting the U.S. are clearly fake news to everyone outside of those who (like most of the liberals in CNN’s newsroom) suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    A perfect example of the latter comes in the form of CNN political commentator and First Amendment defender April Ryan, fresh off of being given a free pass by her media colleagues after she had a credentialed journalist thrown out of one of her speaking engagements because “When I speak, I don’t have news covering my speech.”

    Ryan joined other liberal commentators including the supposedly objective (not really) “New Day” hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman in a wildly biased segment talking about Trump’s alleged remarks about nuking hurricanes.

    Here’s how it went down (bolded emphasis added):

    The unanimously anti-Trump panel on Monday’s New Day melted down at President Trump’s alleged far-fetched suggestion to use nuclear weapons to stop hurricanes headed towards the United States. While everyone on the panel laughed off at the idea, CNN political analyst April Ryan took it a step further by declaring that the desire to nuke hurricanes off the coast of Africa is motivated by racial animus.

    […]

    Ryan addressed the reporting on President Trump’s supposed plan by describing how hurricanes “start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it.”

    The CNN carnival barker then proceeded to suggest President Trump had a more sinister motive for wanting to use nuclear weapons off the coast of Africa: “He brought in Africa…As we were talking during break, he’s called Africa a sh**hole nation…And what part of Africa are you talking about? Sub-Saharan Africa, where there are mostly black people?”

    Watch video of the unhinged segment below:

    Newsbusters and Real Clear Politics have the full transcripts.

    This is not unlike what deranged leftists said about Bush before, during, and after Hurricane Katrina, suggesting Bush wanted black people to die, etc.

    There is just no rationalizing with people who are this far gone, first believing there was even talk of nuking a hurricane, and second for insinuating it was being discussed because racism. Shame on CNN for not only amplifying this hateful nonsense, but for being active participants in it.
