Austin Mayor Seeks Help On Homeless Problem by Going to California Leaders Who Specialize In Creating It

Westlake Legal Group AP_18152597516332-620x309 Austin Mayor Seeks Help On Homeless Problem by Going to California Leaders Who Specialize In Creating It Texas Steve Adler Politics Policy los angeles homeless Greg Abbott Front Page Stories Featured Story Drugs donald trump disease democrats California austin Allow Media Exception

You don’t go to a practicing drug addict to seek advice on how to stay clean or ask a corrupt mechanic on what kind of work your car needs, but Austin Mayor Steve Adler is going to do just that, or at least something similar.

Austin’s homeless problem has taken a turn for the worst, especially after the Texas capitol passed ordinance that allowed homeless people to set up camp on city streets so long as they’re not blocking walkways. The problem proceeded to spiral out of control, even managing to anger Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who has expressed his intention to bring the power of Texas against Adler’s office in order to kill the ordinance.

In the meantime, Adler is giving interviews that attempt to put his new homeless laws in a positive light. To say these interviews are unconvincing is an understatement, especially with all the problems he has to admit it’s bringing with it.

According to Fox 7, the mayor is looking to get some insight on the problem and planning a trip to California in order to seek advice from city leaders in that state on how to handle the homeless problem currently plaguing his city.

If I went to a prostitute to seek guidance on abstinence, I’m not sure you’d be able to label it as “wise.”

It should be noted that Los Angeles is one of the examples of how to handle a homeless problem in the country. As the LA Times reported in February of last year, the homeless problem in that city has shot up 75 percent in the last six years, and even acknowledges that the problem became worse when Democrats took over leadership with a super-majority.

“The problem has only gotten worse since Mayor Eric Garcetti took office in 2013 and a liberal Democratic supermajority emerged in 2016 on the county Board of Supervisors,” reported the LA Times.

The Times noted just how bad the numbers are:

Tent cities stretch from the Antelope Valley desert to the Santa Monica coast, with stopovers in unlikely communities — even Bel-Air, where a homeless cooking fire was implicated in December’s Skirball fire.

During an October hygiene survey, county public health officials identified 222 encampments, including 50 with 30 or more people living in them. These ragtag outposts have altered the basic terms of urban life.

People in Koreatown step outside their fancy condos to find tents, rotting food and human feces at their doorsteps. Buses and trains have become de facto shelters, and thousands of people sleep in fear and degradation.

Officials and philanthropic groups have been housing more homeless people than ever before — 26,000 between 2014 and 2017. But L.A. has a severe housing shortage, and city and county homeless programs have been slow to start and too limited to absorb the waves of people forced into the streets.

The problem is so horrible in cities controlled by Democrats that it got President Donald Trump’s attention at the beginning of July. During an interview with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, the problem came up.

“It’s a phenomenon that started two years ago,” Trump noted. “It’s disgraceful. I’m going to maybe – I am looking at it very seriously.”

Disease, drugs, and trash continue to mount, yet Democrat leaders continue to try to downplay the problem, and even blame it on something other than their policies that encourage homelessness much like the kind being passed in Austin and San Francisco.

Yet, this is where Mayor Adler wants to go to get advice on how to deal with the problem currently spiraling out of control in the heart of one of the most successful states in the nation. This is backward thinking, and hopefully Abbott will step in to stop Democrats from allowing this to rage out of control soon.

Greg Abbott Is About to Make Austin Regret Its Desire to Become Like California In Its Homeless Problem

Westlake Legal Group o-GREG-ABBOTT-facebook-620x310 Greg Abbott Is About to Make Austin Regret Its Desire to Become Like California In Its Homeless Problem Texas Steve Adler republicans Politics homelessness Gret Abbott Front Page Stories Featured Story Drugs democrats crime austin Allow Media Exception

If you go to various cities in California, one of the first things you’ll notice is the shocking amount of homeless people that are camped out on the streets. I wish I could say these were people just down on their luck, but where homeless camps pop up, an inordinate amount of drug use does as well.

And for some reason, Austin, Texas, wants to be just like them.

Austin’s Mayor Steve Adler made it legal for homeless people to set up tents on city streets so long as they aren’t blocking pathways. In an interview, Adler said he doesn’t think that this will cause problems like it does in Los Angeles or San Francisco, but Austin residents, especially women, are worried about safety concerns.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott warned back in June that if Austin does go through with it, then he’ll be forced to bring the power of Texas down on the city.

“If Austin— or any other Texas city—permits camping on city streets it will be yet another local ordinance the State of Texas will override,” tweeted Abbott. “At some point cities must start putting public safety & common sense first.”

Fast forward to July, and the ordinance is already causing major problems. Needless to say, Abbott is not happy. Abbott took to Twitter once again to show people what kind of dangers the policies Austin enacted are bringing on. Quote tweeting a Texas resident who caught an accident caused by homeless people darting into traffic caused a major accident near downtown Austin.

“Look at this insanity caused by Austin’s reckless homeless policy. All state-imposed solutions are on the table including eliminating local sovereign immunity for damages and injuries like this caused by a city’s homeless policy,” tweeted Abbott.

“The horror stories are piling up,” he added.

Adler seems to be willing to stand his ground, however. He noted that Abbott was “misled” in a tweet and blamed the outrage around homeless camps on people trying to scare and lie to others.

Austin residents fired back.

It’s likely that Abbott is currently cooking up something in the legislature with the help of Republicans, though if this continues to spiral out of control, Austin may end up just like San Francisco, which has become a dangerous place to be with all the homeless and hard drugs that literally litter the streets.

Proof YouTube Is Censoring Viral Independent News Videos In Favor of Lukewarm Cable News Network Videos

Every day, YouTube pushes a list of news videos into my feed that they term “Top News.”

As you can see from the screenshot I took, they are nothing but mainstream and cable channels from different countries. The subjects include the announcement of Ross Perot’s death, a dancing cockatoo, and a car that caught on fire during a gender reveal. Westlake Legal Group tweeten-1562710364207 Proof YouTube Is Censoring Viral Independent News Videos In Favor of Lukewarm Cable News Network Videos youtube tim pool Politics News Internet Front Page Stories Featured Story David Pakman Corporations Censorship Allow Media Exception

Now let’s take a look at some independent news personalities and their videos.

Tim Pool’s latest videos far and away outclass any of these videos by miles, and some of this stuff is hard hitting news. Pool’s coverage of the border crisis and politicians involved with it has been majorly watched videos.

Now, you may say that the videos from the “Top News” picks are only hours old, and fair enough. However, going over the video content of channels like CBS News, the majority struggle to crack 10,000 views. Those that do go beyond still very rarely ever top Pool’s selection of news videos.

Compare that to progressive independent news source David Pakman whose recent offering outclasses CBS News as well.

The Quartering on YouTube, which primarily covers cultural news, also consistently outperforms the major news networks.

Despite these channels consistently discussing news, it’s not considered good enough to be “Top News” according to YouTube. A dancing cockatoo, however, is.

Pakman posted a video discussing this push of YouTube’s for more mainstream news to take center stage, where in he discusses just how bad it’s become. In the video he points to a graph that shows the recommendations from YouTube toward independent news, and you can see for yourself the recommendations generated from the YouTube algorithm push mainstream news channels far more than independent news channels.

Pakman notes that he spent the weekend researching this and attempted to see who was gaining the recommendations that would have otherwise gone to these independent channels. Pakman shows us a graph generated by monitoring YouTube’s algorithm that shows the recommendations “dive off a cliff” at May 1st, where as CNN, Fox News, and other corporate news channels skyrocketed.

Pakman wanted to stress that this wasn’t just affecting conservative news channels, but news channels across the ideological spectrum. In other words, if you’re not a corporate entity, YouTube probably won’t recommend you.

Pool also posted a graph that shows what Pakman is talking about.

YouTube is likely abandoning creators and personalities that base themselves on their platform due to the fact that it’s become too “dangerous” for it to do otherwise.

Enjoy dancing parrots as your “Top News” in your sterile YouTube experience.

Left-Leaning Pollster Has Some Bad News For Liberals On The Census Citizenship Question

Westlake Legal Group Border_Agency_Journalist_Surveillance_40930-620x431 Left-Leaning Pollster Has Some Bad News For Liberals On The Census Citizenship Question The Economist/You Gov poll migrants immigration Harvard University Poll Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Culture Allow Media Exception 2020

 

New polling data from The Economist/YouGov, organizations that lean more than a little to the left, shows that the majority of Americans believe the citizenship question should be included on the census. 2020 Democratic presidential candidates should pay attention.

The survey question read: Do you think the federal government should or should not ask people whether they are American citizens as part of the 2020 census?

53% of respondents favor adding the citizenship question to the census compared to only 32% who felt it should not be included. 14% were not sure.

This poll, conducted between June 30 and July 2, surveyed 1,500 US adult citizens.

A glance at the responses to some of the other questions in this poll leaves the impression that this particular group of respondents leaned more to the left than a typical group of US adult citizens.

The Daily Wire’s Hank Berrien goes even further saying that the “respondents surveyed seem to lean strongly toward the Left.” He explains:

To give an indication of just how left-leaning the respondents surveyed were, when asked what they thought of the nine Supreme Court justices, the justices gaining far and away the highest approval ratings were leftists Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, while the conservative justices lagged far behind; 53% of respondents said Roe v. Wade should not be overturned; 45% of respondents opposed President Trump’s policies while only 33% approved, and most tellingly, 37% said they would vote in their state’s Democratic Primary this year with only 27% saying the same of voting in their state’s GOP primary. 43% of respondents said they would vote for whomever the Democratic presidential nominee will be in 2020 as opposed to 34% who would vote for President Trump.

Berrien just may be correct, because a new Harvard University Center for American Political Studies/Harris poll, published in The Washington Times showed that 67% of all registered U.S. voters believe the citizenship questions should be included on the census.

Most surprising of all, the Harvard poll found that 55% of Hispanics support adding the question. Considering all the caterwauling from the Left over this issue, that’s quite remarkable.

Here are the figures of those who support the question by group.

Republicans: 88%
Independents: 63%
Democrats: 52%
Rural Voters: 74%
Black Voters: 59%
Urban Voters: 58%

And unsurprisingly,

Voters Who Backed Hillary in 2016: 47%
Liberal Voters: 44%

Attorney General William Barr told the Associated Press today he believes the Trump administration can legally add a citizenship question. He said he had been in regular contact with President Trump and  “I agree with him that the Supreme Court decision was wrong.” He added that he thinks “there is an opportunity potentially to cure the lack of clarity that was the problem and we might as well take a shot at doing that.”

Barr also told the AP that “the Trump administration will take action in the coming days that he believes will allow the government to add the controversial census query.”

We have a right to know who is and who is not a U.S. citizen. The left opposes it because they know it will prevent many illegals from completing the form. And they want everyone counted.

This shouldn’t even be an issue, let alone a controversial one.

It Was Never About the Breasts: SJW Outrage Over Depictions of Women Is About Control, Not Care

Westlake Legal Group Capture-3-620x360 It Was Never About the Breasts: SJW Outrage Over Depictions of Women Is About Control, Not Care Tifa Lockhart Social Justice SJWs Politics Mass Effect Ghostbusters Gaming Front Page Stories Final Fantasy VII Featured Story fake outrage Entertainment control Censorship captain marvel Anita Sarkeesian Allow Media Exception

The social justice infected parts of the left have pushed the idea on the populace that they hold the moral high ground. Be it their concern for violence, depictions of women and minorities, or how various story lines are “problematic,” the social justice warrior always puts up the front that they care about these things because it may cause damage to our society.

It’s a pleasant looking veneer that hides a sinister intent. It’s a way to mask the selfish desires of a group of people who have zero business deciding how we live, work, and play. It’s always been about control, never about care.

A good example is the recent fervor that arose around the way a famous character is portrayed in the remake of one of the most popular video games of all time, Final Fantasy VII.

The character in question, Tifa Lockhart, has always been depicted as an attractive, fit, raven haired girl with large breasts. This has angered the living daylights out of social justice warriors who have always complained that Tifa is a character solely built for the male gaze and is absolutely unrealistic. The complaints have had their effect. Square-Enix, the game’s publisher, handed down an order from its “ethics department” to “restrict her chest.” Now, in the upcoming remake for the game, Tifa’s breasts don’t seem to have been reduced in size, just given a better sports bra to contain them.

As Ashe Schow wrote over at The Federalist, the developers of the game seem to be pushing back against the outrage brigades and aren’t fully cooperating with the “ethics department.” In fact, it’s seemingly spiting them.

The pushback on this narrative was instant. YouTuber Liana Kerzner proved that they do, in fact, make bras for breasts as large as Tifa’s character.

Furthermore, as I covered on Tuesday, a study was recently released that proved video game depictions of women don’t damage the self-image of women, nor does it make them aggressive toward each other as some have claimed.

We’re told outrage erupted from the men in the gaming community over the change to Tifa’s look, but outside of a handful of online posts at various websites, there doesn’t seem to be much in the way of anger toward it. Still, the social justice brigades used this narrative that gamers were the sexists they said they were all along.

The pattern here is obvious. SJWs are attempting to find solutions to a problem that aren’t there. Research shows us that depictions of characters like Tifa aren’t damaging to women. Men aren’t ready to riot in the streets over a characters breast size being reduced. The narrative being crafted is that without the guidance of social justice advocacy groups, industries would be left to being dictated by villainous people such as the sexists who force women to view characters they’ll likely never look like.

This is a typical part of the SJW playbook. It’s the offer of “you’re about to be in big trouble but we can help you if you just let us tell you what to do.” You can see this perfectly with feminist activist Anita Sarkeesian’s recent attempted to do this to CD Projekt Red after SJWs found a window for outrage over a depiction of a trans person on a billboard within the upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077. Sarkeesian publicly attempted to shame the game company while offering her “help.”

She followed that up with an offer to every gaming company to help them “avoid these kinds of mistakes.”

It’s so kind of her to offer this threat of “help” to various developers and publishers especially in light of the fact that Sarkeesian is going broke.

Day follows night, the flu virus makes you sick, and social justice activists will try to find a way to get you invite them into your company as “advisers” in the same way vampires try to get you to invite them into your home so they can cross the threshold and suck your lifeblood dry.

And failure is a constant result of allowing these activists to “help” avoid these “mistakes.” Uninspired stories, shallow characters, and alienation of the fan base is a constant pattern. Take, for instance, the much beloved Mass Effect franchise. The initial trilogy was absolutely remarkable with characters you truly fell in love with and an epic story line that proved the gaming industry was just as good, if not better, at telling stories than Hollywood.

However, social justice warriors worked their way into development company Bioware, and the fourth installment of Mass Effect ended up being an unmitigated disaster that is reviled among the gaming community. I won’t go into detail, but if you want more on that, Dunkey, a well known gaming YouTuber, made an amazing video that summed up the disaster that it was.

It’s no different in Hollywood. Captain Marvel and 2016’s Ghostbusters were all abject failures hated by fans, but only kept in the limelight by the media’s insistence that these movies matter because they were made with intentions of those claiming the moral high ground and against the wishes of “evil” people.

All these failures have a common thread. They were made after social justice ideas that cause rot infected their respective creators. The inherent need to want to do and be good caused creators and publishers to embrace liars and charlatans who truly believe that by controlling what we see and hear, and fashion all things to be what they consider moral, that we’ll be better off as a society. They don’t care that they’re constantly proven wrong, or that the product that they “helped” make flopped horrifically. They don’t care that the company they worked for suffered, or that people lost jobs, or that lives are destroyed.

Social justice activists are parasitic. They infect the host, damaging or killing it, then move on to the next, reaping their own gains along the way. Their “care” for women, minorities, or the “disadvantaged” members of our society is a ruse to get you to invite them to latch on. They don’t truly care about any of the things they say they do. You can see that by the way they treat members of these groups who disagree with them.

As such, Tifa Lockhart’s breast size matters so little it barely registers on the outrage meter, yet in order to gain control, social justice activists will happily feign insult and offense in order to work their way into an industry and “save it”…for a price.

A couple of months ago, meteorologist Ryan Maue got wind of an Instagram weather rant done by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and took to the Twitter machine to issue some clarifications on her claims about so-called “casual tornadoes” allegedly being evidence that “the climate crisis is real, y’all.”

“The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate,” he tweeted, explaining how to differentiate between the two:

“Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”

Fast forward to this week, and Maue is back, once again taking issue with the freshman Congresswoman’s alarming social media “reports” about DC weather.

Here’s what AOC wrote:

Maue responded with a series of tweets subtly insinuating that Ocasio-Cortez’s expertise in this area was … lacking:

Not every whether event is related to climate change, Maue noted:

He concluded with a little zinger about how “this science is cutting-edge … but the politics obviously isn’t”:

Maue is one of the few meteorologists I’ve heard of who is not afraid of openly disagreeing with and debating climate alarmists – and not just those in politics, but also others in his field of expertise.

Another Group of Historically ‘Anti-Union’ Planned Parenthood Workers Want A Union

Employees of Planned Parenthood want to unionize with the SEIU—but it’s doubtful the nation’s largest abortion provider will let that happen without a fight.

NEW YORK, NY—A group of nearly 250 Planned Parenthood workers want to unionize with a branch of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), according to a petition filed with the National Labor Relations Board.

On Friday, 1199SEIU filed a petition with the NLRB to hold a election among 245 “professional and non-professional” employees at the Planned Parenthood facility in New York City.

Excluded from the petition are “employees already represented [by a union], physicians, supervisors and guards as defined by the Act.”

The petition filing is an indication that Planned Parenthood will not “voluntarily recognize” the union without an election.

As a result, barring any challenges from Planned Parenthood to the union’s petition, it is likely that the NLRB will schedule an election within the next three to four weeks.

Normally, Planned Parenthood and the SEIU are allies., as the SEIU often provides the abortion chain with financial and public support.

In fact, former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards is married to Kirk Adams, the longtime head of SEIU’s health care branch, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

However, the two allies have historically parted ways when it comes to the SEIU unionizing Planned Parenthood’s employees.

In Colorado, for example, Planned Parenthood vigorously fought the SEIU unionizing its employees at 14 of its facilities.

In December 2017, after a vote of 72-57, Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains affiliate (PPRM) appealed the outcome of the election to, ironically, the appointees of President Trump at the National Labor Relations Board in Washington.

In April [2018], the NLRB accepted the case for review, and a three-member panel ruled in PPRM’s favor, putting the union on hold. PPRM officials said they appealed the initial ruling that favored holding union elections because it wants workers at all 24 of its clinics in Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico to be part of the bargaining unit. Officials at PPRM say they appealed SEIU’s vote to unionize because only 40 percent of their workers voted for the union.

Eventually, Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains settled its differences with the SEIU before the entire NLRB could rule on the case.

The Colorado case, however, is not the first time Planned Parenthood has been accused of ‘union busting.’

Workers at Planned Parenthood of Columbia Willamette and Planned Parenthood of Central and Western New York accused the health-care organization of trying to stop their unionization efforts, according to Rewire.

In addition to its alleged ‘union-busting,’ the nation’s largest abortion provider has come under fire for its mistreatment of employees—including alleged discrimination against its own pregnant employees.

“In interviews and legal documents,” reported the New York Times, “women at Planned Parenthood and other organizations with a feminist bent described discrimination that violated federal or state laws — managers considering pregnancy in hiring decisions, for example, or denying rest breaks recommended by a doctor.”

Whether or not the Planned Parenthood workers in New York decide to become unionized remains to be seen.

However, even if they do unionize, it does not mean they will get a contract, let alone a contract they like…as the SEIU’s own employees know first hand.

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop? AOC’s Chief of Staff Wears a Shirt Supporting Nazi Sympathizer

People should really consider what who they wear.

A friend of mine takes periodic opportunities to put down Republicans; he sports Honest Abe. A guy I know is all about justice; he drapes himself with Che Guevara.

And woke AOC Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti dons Subhas Chandra Bose — an Indian revolutionary, British resistor, and…wait for it…Nazi sympathizer.

Nicely done.

Saikat wore the hip T-shirt during a NowThis interview shortly after Alexandra’s 2018 election.



More on Subhas, courtesy of The Daily Caller:

By 1942 Hitler had recognized Bose as the leader of the “Free India Government.” Bose, over the course of the war, enlisted 40,000 men into the Indian National Army to help support the Japanese invasion of British India in 1944. He also recruited Indians to help fight the British in the European Theater for Hitler.  The Indian Legion Bose raised for Germany was trained as a regiment within the SS.
On one occasion Bose traveled to Germany to meet Hitler in person. During his time in Germany, Bose would broadcast propaganda for the Nazis on Azad Hind Radio, speaking in several different languages including English, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati and Pashto.

Bose also socialized in circles with the notorious head of Hitler’s SS, Heinrich Himmler, who was responsible for enforcing the “Final Solution” which led to the persecution and death of 6 million Jews throughout the course of the war.

Not a good look for Democrats.

However, it may be that Alexandria’s fanbase isn’t exactly comprised of history scholars. #ARealPlus

Still, this is the 2nd story in a week connecting the youngest woman ever elected to Congress to Third Reich coziness — as I covered Monday, Alexandria took a comparison to Eva Perón as a compliment (here).

Yet somehow, it’s American conservatives who are the Nazis (here and here) — who were, of course, socialists.

Back to AOC, the cowfart fighter’s just coming off a weeklong run of likening our southern border to Holocaust-era concentration camps (here, here, and here).

Saikat got in on that action, too:

As punctuated by VP Pence Saturday, some didn’t appreciate the trivialization (here).

Like I said, it’s not a good look. Perhaps in some circles, it’s fashion forward; but I think most people would agree that fascism went out with skinny mustaches.

Bose, who wrote a book titled The Indian Struggle, visited Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in 1935 to give him a copy of the book, which advocated for a political system of fascism and communism. In 1942, Bose met with Hitler and later said in 1944 that India “should be a synthesis between National Socialism and Communism." The Times of India notes Bose "fancied himself as a world leader like Hitler and Mussolini." Bose declared himself in 1943 the head of a Provisional Government of Free India and claimed to be the head of state and prime minister, which he said he would enforce with execution of anyone who opposed him. In 1945, he died in a plane crash.” COULD YOU IMAGINE IF SOMEONE IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WAS GLORIFYING A FASCIST NAZI COLLABORATOR!?!?

LGBTQ Writer for Think Progress Gave Longtime Friend Ultimatum Over Her MAGA Hat. She Chose the Hat.

MAGA hat by R. Nial Bradshaw, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Think Progress‘s LGBTQ writer Zack Ford wants you to know, that when it comes to politics versus friendships, he will choose politics every time.

Ford, who is also infamous for accusing women who don’t want men in their bathrooms of “bigotry” and “transphobia”, has a newsletter he sends out periodically. He shared the link to a recent one on his Twitter feed in which he talked about a longtime friend who he saw in a photo wearing a MAGA hat.

Here’s what Ford wrote in his newsletter (if you click on the link, scroll to the bottom in order to bypass the other random nonsense):

As I was browsing Facebook last night, I saw a picture of an old high school friend celebrating the Fourth of July with her daughter on her lap. She was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Now, this friend and her family are evangelical Christians, and I’ve definitely disagreed with them on many things. But we’ve had respectful conversations about many topics in the past, even on the very personal issue of their anti-gay beliefs, and I believed that there was still mutual respect despite these significant disagreements. I’ve even stayed in their home in the past. But seeing her proudly wearing a MAGA hat in public — and with her daughter no less — violated this accord deeply.

It’s not just a hat. It’s a symbol of all of the oppression and injustice the Trump administration is responsible for. It’s an endorsement of caging kids, banning Muslims, firing trans people, and dozens of other ways Trump has undermined our democracy — up to and including the fascist military display that graced the National Mall last night. More than anything, “MAGA” represents the idea that some human lives are worth more than others.

I explained all of this to my old friend. To those inclined to reject the humanity of any particular group, a MAGA hat is a symbol of affirmation — license and encouragement to continue holding those beliefs. To members of those many rejected groups, it’s a threat — a warning that such prejudice is welcome in that person’s vicinity (and may come from them directly). It’s unacceptable to me to be subjected to that symbol from someone with whom I hypothetically have mutual trust.

I gave my friend an ultimatum. I told her I wouldn’t unfriend her so long as she apologized for wearing the hat and promised me I wouldn’t have to see it in my feed again. When she claimed I was trying to police her beliefs, I corrected her, pointing out that my conditions only regarded the hat, not her position on any particular issue. When she claimed that she’s equally offended by the Pride flag, I corrected her again, explaining that objecting to a symbol of inclusion is in no way comparable to objecting to a symbol of exclusion and that she was making a false equivalency. When she said, “If I can’t have an opinion about something then I guess I don’t really live in a free country,” I knew there was no longer enough common ground for us to have a relationship.

He unfriended her. It sounds like she got the better end of the deal on that one:

I know it’s not totally uncommon for friendships to end over politics. Sometimes people just drift apart because they no longer share the same values. Or because there were misunderstandings about one or the other (or both’s) political beliefs. But I can’t imagine seeing a friend who wears merch that expresses political beliefs that are the opposite of mine and just assuming the worst about them because they’re wearing it.

If I’ve known them long enough, I have a pretty good idea what kind of heart they have, and am confident that their disagreements with me are in good faith. There wouldn’t need to be any “conversation”, as Ford initiated with his friend. And there would certainly not be any “ultimatums” issued.

But that’s not how politics-obsessed virtue signalers like Ford choose to view things. He chose to see the worst in his friend even after knowing her for so long because for the Zack Fords of the world (and there are plenty out there like him), everything, and I do mean everything must be viewed from the prism of politics. Government is god to them. If you dare stray from their worldviews, you’re committing a sacrilege. And, to them, you’ve struck out.

There are plenty of people who support Trump for completely legit reasons unrelated to any alleged bigotry, intolerance etc. Just as there are people on Ford’s side who support Democratic politicians for completely legit reasons unrelated to any alleged socialistic desires, love for abortion, or anti-religious bigotry, etc.

Simply put, it is okay to have friends who disagree with you politically. If your political discussions get too heated, you can agree to disagree and move on. You can suggest politics be an off-limit topic if need be.

Can you imagine how boring and closed off the world would be if people only associated with like-minded people? That’s how Zack Ford types want it to be, but that’s not how it should be.

Ilhan Omar Teaches High Schoolers That America is Racist, Then Admits She May Have Made Up the Facts of Her Story

In case you haven’t heard, race is the big thing.

What we thought the world learned after Hitler? It didn’t so much take.

Lessons on the other side of segregation? They’re fading.

We’re now back to the 40’s — there are whites and non-whites, like the water fountains knew.

But enter a hip, new, and so totally altogether different term: instead of colored, “people of color.” Presto Change-O, Woke-O.

But how about Lie-O?

Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar recently told a large group of youngsters at Richfield High School that about half a decade ago, she was serving as a city councilwoman in Minneapolis. And she learned a valuable lesson about the U.S. malady of systemic racism.

As reported by Fox News:

She recalled a “sweet, old… African-American lady” who was detained for a whole weekend for stealing a $2 loaf of bread to feed her “starving 5-year-old granddaughter,” according to The Washington Post, and screamed an expletive in court after the woman was fined $80 for the crime.

“I couldn’t control my emotions,” Omar told students, “because I couldn’t understand how a roomful of educated adults could do something so unjust.”

But the Post called BS:

Omar’s story echoed the plot of Les Miserables. If true, it is also probably embellished. City officials said that police aren’t allowed to arrest people for shoplifting unless there’s a likelihood of violence or further crime. Typically, shoplifters are sentenced to attend a three-hour class.

Now Ilhan’s admitting the tale may have been plagued with that substance not too dissimilar to her colleague AOC’s dreaded nemesis, cow farts (here, here, and here):

“She might have had a prior [arrest]. I’m not sure. … The details might not have all matched, but that’s what I remember.”

Nice.

Big difference.

So what was her point? What did she want to convey to teens yet to form their concrete thoughts about the greatest nation ever to exist?

Well, she also told the kids this:

“I grew up in an extremely unjust society, and the only thing that made my family excited about coming to the United States was that the United States was supposed to be the country that guaranteed justice to all. So, I feel it necessary for me to speak about that promise that’s not kept.”

Back to a more 1940’s East Germany perspective, perhaps the students are learning that whole race thing well:

After the speech, the students, who were mostly minorities, swarmed the congresswoman. “It’s great to have a representative who looks like the people she represents,” a white student said.

Aaaand, we’re toast.
