Why Has CNN Not Reported About Anti CHRISTian, Pro Life Hatred?

Westlake Legal Group CNN-Text-Message-Alerts-300x175 Why Has CNN Not Reported About Anti CHRISTian, Pro Life Hatred? Front Page Stories Featured Story Allow Media Exception 2019

This is HIDING YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND

CNN claims to be the worldwide leader in news.

If they are then why have they not reported a thing on one of the largest stories happening today that involve a pro-life group being accused of being like porn and CHRISTians being singled out for banning on Pinterest.

Duh.

Earlier today I wrote about Pinterest Blocks Pro Life Group Live Action, Calling it PORN. The World Wide Leader, of course, can’t devote any of its time from having Brooke Baldwin giggle about Joe Biden on the campaign trail in Iowa so I’m sure that that the CNN website has something.

As of this posting at 3:15 pm EDT there is nada about this intriguing story. In case Brain Stelter who is CNN’s crack media reporter is reading this and wondering what nada means, it means no in Spanish. Which is also the same answer you get Brian when you ask if your show has beaten any show on Nickelodeon ever.

So I am going to monitor how long it takes for CNN to mention this story.

Will Jake Tapper take a moment from criticizing those who criticize anything on CNN and mention it during the 4 pm hour?

Could Wolf Blitzer grab the bull by the horns in the “Situation Room” and talk about why CHRISTians are being banned for just being CHRISTians on a site that is famous for sharing recipes?

Maybe Anderson Cooper could stop admiring the fact that he is Anderson Cooper and bring this up.

I don’t hold up much hope for the Abbot & Costello of the CNN nighttime lineup of Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon being they are always too busy trying to outdo each other with how hip the other one is. Lets get after it indeed.

So I will do updates to this post during each show to see if anyone mentions it or if by some accident a story gets posted on the website. Don’t hold your breath though.

They are all in Jeff Zucker’s office looking at the ratings and passing tissues around.

Pinterest Blocks Pro Life Group Live Action, Calling it PORN.

Can’t people who support babies and Pinterest get along?

The social media giants seem to be flexing their muscle against conservative people and organizations as of late.

The latest case of this comes just today from Pinterest, where one of the largest Pro-Life groups in the country, Live Action has been banned.

This has been months in the making it seems.

Back in Feb of this year, an employee at Pinterest discovered that people who were trying to link back to Live Action were not able to do so being the PRO-LIFE site was labeled a porn site. Now that is a stretch if there ever was one.

James O’ Keefe and his crew over at Project Veritas picked up the trail and found out that it goes much deeper than just labeling a pro-life group incorrectly but also putting CHRISTanity subjects in general on unsafe lists to view.

O’Keefe has been on fire today on twitter about this and here is just a sample…

Live Action President Lila Rose had this to say in response to the Pinterest move to ban the group she founded when she was a teenager…

Based on the evidence provided, it appears that Pinterest intentionally added ‘LiveAction.org’ to a ‘pornography’ blocklist in an effort to suppress our pro-life content from being shared on the platform.

By secretly applying the label of ‘pornography’ to Live Action’s pro-life content, Pinterest demonstrates a concerted effort to sideline a leading pro-life organization the only way they knew how. This does not appear to be a simple mistake. When confronted with an appeal, their employees doubled down and kept LiveAction.org on the pornography list.

What exactly is Pinterest attempting to block? Inspirational messages to pregnant mothers, ultrasound images showing the science of prenatal development, medically accurate information on the abortion procedure, and images saying women deserve better than abortion industry leader Planned Parenthood. Pinterest has targeted Live Action, I believe because our message is so effective at educating millions about the humanity of the preborn child and the injustice of abortion. Pinterest says that their mission is to “help empower people to discover things that they love,” but despite the fact that millions of people love babies and the pro-life cause, they are secretly censoring our life-affirming messages. Pinterest users deserve to know the truth and our messages deserve to be treated fairly. If Planned Parenthood can promote their message on Pinterest, then Live Action should be able to as well.

As I said above there seems to be a clear bias from groups like Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube on how they apply their “Terms Of Service” and apply them. There is no way in God’s Green Earth that anything on Live Action could be labeled “Porn” or as harmful to the public using Pinterest. If it is then the CEO of that company, Ben Silbermann, should go on a live show and explain it. In detail. With Lial Rose on that forum.

I know that I’m dreaming but enough is enough. This one-sided screwed up world view needs to be tackled head-on.

Let’s start with not allowing a Pro-Life group to be slandered in this manner.

Bizarre: Beto Says He’s Staying in Presidential Race Because Polls Said He’d Lose Against Ted Cruz in 2018, Too

2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke (D) campaigns in Charlotte, NC – 4/15/19. Screen grab via ABC News.

Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign has fallen so far in polling over the last couple of months that he’s now apparently taken to believing he actually won his 2018 Senate race against Ted Cruz.

During a stop in Cedar Rapids, IA over the weekend, O’Rourke told a journalist that he was not worried about recent polling numbers that put him at 2% in the crucial state of Iowa. Why? Because polls said he wasn’t going to win his race against Ted Cruz, either (bolded emphasis added):

“There is a lot of time before the Iowa caucuses. We’ve never been guided by a poll before, “ O’Rourke told Yahoo News at the opening of his Cedar Rapids field office. “If you were to look at the Texas Senate race, the first couple of months after we were in, no poll was going to say that we were going to win. When I first ran for Congress in 2012, against an incumbent and against some very long odds no poll at any point said that we were going to win. And yet yet we did. And if I am lucky enough to to be the nominee and then to become the president of the United States, no poll will guide the decisions that I make.”

Watch video of the exchange below:

Except, ya know, O’Rourke sorta lost his Senate race against Cruz.

As Hot Air‘s Allapundit noted, it’s “as if Stacey Abrams’s delusion somehow became infectious and Beto caught it from her.”

Or maybe he got his words twisted and really meant to say that early polls didn’t give him a shot at even coming close to defeating Cruz. Let’s hope that’s all it is. Because we sure don’t need another delusional failed candidate like Stacey Abrams on our hands.

Entrenched Politician Elizabeth Warren Suggests Newcomer Trump Will Not Give Up Power, Needs to be Pried from Office

Elizabeth Warren – Caricature by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

 

Is it projection, or obliviousness, that leads a political animal to accuse others of being political?

It would not be a day in D.C. without an elected official displaying a stark lack of self-awareness. Elizabeth Warren, in her continued attempt to appear as normal and every-day gosh-darn normal as you people in those strange flyover states, is still struggling with image control. After a bungled beer video Liz is still working on that “relatable” thing, bare she’s trying!

Her latest comes from the Team Warren Twitter account which, in true “Hello fellow kids” fashion has in its bio the opening of “Welcome Stans”. (Ugh, I swear…) The account gives a video that has Warren in an impromptu discussion with a young girl. Warren also has a children’s book that is centered upon herself, I would point out, and maybe if she focused a bit more on those who are of proper voting age she may be polling higher, but I’m not a campaign advisor, so what do I know?!

The conversation was so impromptu and off-the-cuff-candid that it was captured on video, with subtitles provided.

 

The young girl asks Senator Warren a question, borne of undiluted curiosity in a completely natural and not-at-all pre-planned fashion. “Why is there still sexism now?” asked the young one. Warren next goes on a lengthy and involved response, that in no way actually addressed the girl’s concerns.

I kind of think it’s people who have power,” says the Senator with a more than 1/1024 percent amount of earnestness, “don’t actually like to give it up! So you kind of have to pry it away.” She also mentioned having to “fight for what you believe in”, so says the woman who was given the Democratic Party nomination for the Massachusetts Senate seat. (As a complete newcomer she ran unopposed, somehow, so not much of a “fight” there.)

Now, this is a clear reference towards the current President, Donald Trump. This is a woman who has been in DC for 7 years, and has worked the system prior as a lawyer. Trump has never been in politics before the 2016 election. But he is the one who needs to be pried out of his office, for some reason, though he has not even completed the first term. The implication is clear; he is not a rightful occupant of the White House and it is possible he will not vacate in proper fashion once evicted, so to speak.

The irony is this is coming from someone who is comfortably cemented in DC politics, who has been shielded and coddled by her party and now she feels practically entitled. She has made a disaster of herself with her heritage issue, and yet continues to be propped up to the extent that she is one of the front-runners for the party nomination.

Yet here she stands, uninfluenced by shame, suggesting that it is others who are not rightfully in place, and may need to be forcibly extricated in order to make room for her arrival. Amusing that the woman who cannot even admit to errors of her claims of genealogy, because she needs to cling to her position of power, suggests anyone else is having a hard time surrendering their own.

John Dean’s ‘Big Thrill’

Westlake Legal Group trump-2019482_1280-620x499 John Dean’s ‘Big Thrill’ Special Counsel Richard Nixon President Trump Mueller Investigation John Dean Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception 2020

Issues & Insights’ Thomas McArdle recalled an incident detailed in a book entitled “Very Strange Bedfellows: The Short and Unhappy Marriage of Nixon & Agnew” written by Jules Witcover. Witcover, a reporter who covered the Watergate scandal, described an April 1971 (recorded) conversation which took place in President Nixon’s office one year before the Watergate break-in. Nixon and his chief of staff Bob Haldeman were mulling over ideas to remove Vice President Spiro Agnew from the 1972 ticket. White House counsel John Dean was on the phone.

Feigning that he needed Dean to nail down the details of how a new Vice President would be appointed under the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, Nixon finished a phone call with Dean, then quipped to Haldeman: “That’s his big thrill for the month.””

Indeed, the first of many big thrills to come.

Leading up to his gig as the star witness in the Watergate hearings, Dean had been a willing participant in unethical behavior. Always an opportunist, he was willing to do whatever was necessary to achieve his goals.

New York Times writer Jack Anderson reported that Dean had been dismissed by Washington law firm Welch & Morgan for “unethical conduct” that was “grounds for disbarment,” in 1966. The reason? He had been tasked with negotiating for a client’s TV broadcast license and instead, “tried to make a private deal.”

Dean himself had been deeply involved in every aspect of Watergate. As further proof of his duplicitous nature, he stayed on as White House counsel even after he had begun cooperating with Senate investigators. He plead guilty to obstruction of justice in October 1973 and on August 2, 1974, he received a sentence of 1-4 years in a minimum security prison. Upon surrendering himself one month later,

He was diverted to the custody of U.S. Marshals, and kept instead at Fort Holabird (near Baltimore, Maryland) in a special “safe house” holding facility primarily used for witnesses against the Mafia. He spent his days at the offices of Jaworski, the Watergate Special Prosecutor, and testifying in the trial of Watergate conspirators Mitchell, Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Robert Mardian, and Kenneth Parkinson, which concluded on January 1, 1975. All except Parkinson were convicted, largely based upon Dean’s evidence. Dean’s lawyer moved to have his sentence reduced and on January 8, Judge Sirica granted the motion, adjusting Dean’s sentence to time served, which wound up being four months. With his conviction for felony offenses, Dean was disbarred as a lawyer in Virginia and the District of Columbia, so he could no longer practice law.

He was as involved in the scandal as all of these men, yet he escaped justice. He has since parlayed his Watergate “fame” into a profitable career. This man has always looked out for number one.

John Dean will be forever defined by his role in bringing down President Nixon. Why else would the House Judiciary Committee showcase him at the opening of their Mueller Report hearings? After all, as McArdle points out, Dean “has nothing to do with Donald Trump, nothing to do with Russia, nothing to do with Mueller’s investigation, and who throughout his career could be trusted on virtually nothing.” During questioning, he repeatedly had to remind Republican members of Congress that he was not a “fact witness.” McArdle adds:

Some have compared Democrats squiring in Richard Nixon’s disgraced White House counsel and Watergate conspirator John Dean, in their first step on a road they hope will lead to Trump’s impeachment, to bringing in Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. It’s really more like Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman, the stars who played the Washington Post reporters in the movie of their book “All the President’s Men.”

The stunt is a cinematic opportunity to let the establishment media do what they’ve been pining to do for over two years now: juxtapose video of Dean’s blockbuster testimony to the Watergate committee with the various goings-on today and hope the public conflates Nixon and the current White House occupant.

Since Watergate, Dean has positioned himself as an expert on impeachment. He gets his thrills by determining where any given president’s offense or scandal would fall on the “Watergate” scale.

Regarding Reagan’s Iran-Contra scandal, he told Newsweek  “it involves matters of national security. Watergate, on the other hand, involved the political security of Richard Nixon. These are Major-league matters versus Little League.” This was worse than Watergate. Therefore, Reagan should be impeached.

During the Iraq War, he told anyone who would listen that President Bush getting us into a war we didn’t need to be involved in was worse than Watergate. Accordingly, he should be impeached. 

Speaking before the House Judiciary Committee on Monday, Dean said, “In many ways, the Mueller report is to President Trump what the so-called ‘Watergate road map’… was to President Richard Nixon. Mueller has provided this committee with a road map.” Similar to Watergate. Thus, Trump must be impeached.

John Dean is a convicted felon. Who is he to be passing judgement on American Presidents Republican Presidents?

In their desperation, Democrats just can’t stop humiliating themselves. And they will continue to beclown themselves until November 3, 2020.

And the next day, they will cry. Again.

Now THAT would be a thrill.

Ghoul Alert: ‘Teen Vogue’ Instructs Young Girls on How to Get Abortions – Without Parental Consent

Westlake Legal Group abortion-on-demand-without-apology Ghoul Alert: ‘Teen Vogue’ Instructs Young Girls on How to Get Abortions – Without Parental Consent Teen Vogue Social Media sex education Pro-Life Politics North Carolina New York Media journalism Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Allow Media Exception Abortion

I’m not sure what’s worse: Teen Vogue sexualizing 9-year-old drag queen boys, the magazine publishing a “guide to anal sex“, or a more recent story they did advising teenage girls how to get abortions without parental consent:

The magazine has a monthly “Down to Find Out” advice column, which is maintained by feminist writer Nona Willis Aronowitz, who was super-excited to announce her column gig last month:

In her latest column, Aronowitz advises a 16-year-old girl on how to get an abortion – without the consent of her parents:

Q: I’m 16, I’m pregnant, and I don’t want to be. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to get an abortion without my parents’ permission, but I’m really scared to tell them because they are both against abortion. What should I do?

Aronowitz, who is also the author of a subscription-only newsletter called “F*cking Through the Apocalypse”, told the teen she once had been a pregnant teenager, too – but had pro-abortion parents who helped her obtain access to Plan B “without judging or admonishing” her. Other teens weren’t so lucky, she lamented. But according to Aronowitz, that shouldn’t deter a teenager from getting an abortion (bolded emphasis added):

And it’s only logical that if teens are mature enough to become parents, they are mature enough to decide whether or not they want to give birth. Having access to abortion should be your right, regardless of your parents’ beliefs.

Noting that 37 states have some form of parental consent laws on the books, Aronowitz advised:

If you live in one of the handful of states in which a minor can get an abortion without parental involvement — and if you don’t want to tell your parents — you’re all set. But if the law does require that your parents are involved, it’s time for some soul-searching about how you think they’ll react when confronted directly with their pregnant child’s desire to not be.

Aronowitz first advised that teenage girls whose parents are not pro-choice to try and tell them anyway, unless they felt like they would be in danger or kicked out of the house. If they did, Aronowitz suggested the teens go for what’s called a “judicial bypass procedure”:

If yes, there is a legal option in 36 states that would let you get an abortion without parental approval called a judicial bypass procedure — an infantilizing holdup to which nobody should have to resort. The process for a judicial bypass is different in every state, but in each case that it’s an option, it involves a minor testifying before a judge and receiving court approval to access abortion care without telling their parents.

Whether or not a state requires a judicial bypass, Aronowitz lets her teen readers know they can contact a local abortion fund if they need help paying for their abortion (without their parent’s knowledge, of course). She also urged young girls “talk to another adult” about what they are going through if they don’t want to talk to their parents.

In response to Aronowitz’s column, Twitter users let her have it:

That would certainly be a switch!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Already Demanding Higher Pay, and Says She Will Become Corrupt if Not Rewarded

Westlake Legal Group AOC-Speech-620x361 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is Already Demanding Higher Pay, and Says She Will Become Corrupt if Not Rewarded socialism Liberal Elitism Government Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post entitlements democrats Congressional Pay Congress Congreess AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cotez

To call Freshman Congress member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “brazen” is to traffic in redundancy. Since her arrival in D.C. she has moved between acting entitled to demanding obedience, well beyond her pay grade — and now she wants a higher pay grade as well. The subject of Congressional pay raises has come up and AOC, who has been on the job for mere months, is already stating she needs to be paid more. Maybe you can toss a hint of extortion in that mix as well.

If you have ever worked in an office you may have encountered this type. More than ambitious, a new arrival is brought in who questions methods and challenges protocols of a business that have been long established as successful. This person acts in a fashion as if they have all the answers, long before they have even heard all the questions. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is our Congressional new-hire, acting this way before even reading the employee handbook (in her case, the Constitution.)

When the issue was first brought up yesterday AOC did not demure as a new member, nor show any modesty, barely out of her probationary period. “It may not be politically popular to say but honestly this is why there’s so much pressure to turn to lobbying firms and to cash in on member service after people leave because precisely of this issue.”

Note what is not being suggested here. She is not living by her own lecture, suggesting everyone in Congress operate on a “living wage”, as she frequently promotes. It is not even about living expenses; her rationale is that they need more money to keep from straying towards special interests.

Seemingly someone got to her, and this morning she went on a stumbling twitter run that altered her message. In the end it only made her look more tone deaf on the issue, and more entitled.

At least now she attempted to include living expenses as a motivator behind the demand for more money. But note that hint as a politicin of needing more money, or else she will stray.

Yea, except we are not talking about “worker pay” now are we? She, being in the position of ruling and making new legislation, would be considered “management”. And what has been one of her standard complaints about business? The pay discrepancy between executives and the workers.

Alexandria’s current salary in Congress is $174,000. This is far greater than the US average salary of workers without a high school diploma ($27+K), or those who graduated high school ($37+K). Even looking at those with a college education she earns nearly triple the rate of $66+K annually. So here is the woman, who is concerned about the wage disparity, calling for herself to be granted an even higher salary, in direct opposition to her socialist bleatings.

To justify her demand AOC invokes the likelihood of politicians turning to outside interests, unless they get what is coming to them. The argument of “Pay us, or we’ll turn corrupt” is a disturbing piece of leverage for this newcomer to be invoking.

One of the many assured results of Socialist rulers is the corruption and graft taking place in the government. The people may starve, but 5-star meals will be had by the leadership. For Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the freshman in Congress who is an avowed promoter of socialist ideals, she is simply following that Socialist playbook. While she has spoken like a true statist when invoking the plight of workers she has also acted in true Socialist leader form.

Over Half of Modern Women are Ready to Make the Struggles of Their Foremothers Irrelevant

Westlake Legal Group ab3a70e9-aacc-47f3-87e4-fc076b332956.v1-620x413 Over Half of Modern Women are Ready to Make the Struggles of Their Foremothers Irrelevant Women socialism Politics Front Page Stories freedom Feminism Featured Story Economics democrats Allow Media Exception

A new poll from Axios shows that 55 percent of women between the ages of 18 and 54 would rather live under socialism than capitalism.

According to The Federalist, who initially commented on this, women really liked the idea of things like free college and healthcare:

When asked what constitutes a socialist political system, over 50 percent of people believed these policies made a country socialist:

  1. Universal healthcare (76 percent)

  2. Tuition-free education (72 percent)

  3. Living wage (68 percent)

  4. State-controlled economy (66 percent)

  5. State control and regulation of private property (61 percent)

  6. High taxes for the rich (60 percent)

  7. State-controlled media and communication (57 percent)

  8. Strong environmental regulations (56 percent)

  9. High public spending (55 percent)

  10. Government “democratizes” private businesses—that is, gives workers control over them—to the greatest extent possible (52 percent)

Like most who support socialism, I’m not particularly sure if many of these women know what socialism actually is or how it works. Women have fought tooth and nail to become equal to men in the workplace, have achieved it in many ways, and even surpassed them in others. What women are essentially cheering for is to have that success taken by the government directly from their paycheck and thrown at programs they likely won’t benefit from.

Socialism is disproven to work in any regard, yet like the theory of a flat Earth, it persists because people who refuse to learn from proven research talk first and think never. Women would be set back ages due to socialism, and that’s tragic seeing as how they just got here in the grand scheme of things.

Giving the state control over businesses and pay would take the choice out of the hands of women in terms of how much they’re paid, what jobs are available to be worked at, and even where their money gets to go once it’s taken. Once you take the decisions out of the hands of the people who own their company’s, the ability to negotiate goes out the door. The state decides what you’re worth, and the state will never decide you’re worth more than the state. Taxes will skyrocket leaving you with less money for your work if you’re lucky to get hired at all due to the fact that a job can’t support any more employees due to all the taxes and fees it’s paying.

In essence, women are voting for less economic freedom if they vote for socialism, which is sad considering they’ve fought for years to be as economically free as possible.

I Support LGBT Individuals, but Not Its Community of Activists

Westlake Legal Group gay_pride_flag.0-e1464764572490-620x349 I Support LGBT Individuals, but Not Its Community of Activists vox transgender Steven Crowder Politics LGBT individuals Front Page Stories Featured Story Community children Allow Media Exception Activists

During “Pride Month” you tend to see what look like a lot of anti-LGBT writing coming from the right, and I feel like that oftentimes gets misconstrued. It gets misconstrued because the activist left like to paint any kind of logistically analyzed event or negative commentary as a blanket hatred of LGBT people.

It’s not.

That there are truly bigoted people out there is an undeniable fact, but the truly bigoted people are a small minority. Many are like me. We may have LGBT friends or family members that we love very much. We love them because we think they’re good people who are a pleasure to be around. I personally have plenty of gay and lesbian friends that I truly think it’s a pleasure to be around and love talking to.

Of course, like many on the right, including many libertarians, we turn around and write articles that slam the LGBT community. It almost looks like a night and day difference.

It’s not.

The nuance may seem small but looking at it makes it glaringly obvious how many on the right look at members of the LGBT community, and it’s that we’re not looking at them as members of a community but as individuals. We’re not giving our respect for them by the way they identify, but whether or not that individual is a good person and friend.

However, the left typically thinks in terms of categories and groups. Simply identifying as something automatically earns you a certain level of respect and deference. It’s a backward way of doing things as it completely dismisses the person and breaks down the individual into how they fit into the collective.

When a right-leaning individual attacks an event or a person within the LGBT community, the activist left immediately makes it an attack on a general lifestyle, and so makes the front line of the battle an attack on the entire community. This narrative thrives because activists go above and beyond to make any attack seem like an existential threat to homosexuals and transgendered individuals. People get defensive which leads to people getting offensive, which leads to people getting defensive, which leads to people getting offensive, and so on.

The reality is that the majority of people on the right are perfectly happy to leave members of the LGBT community alone. What you do in your private life isn’t our business and we’d like to keep it that way. The problem is that the activists within the LGBT community aren’t content to return the favor.

Jack Phillips of the Masterpiece Cakeshop is gearing up to fight a third lawsuit against him because he wouldn’t violate his religious beliefs. Vox is currently destroying all of YouTube by using the excuse that Steven Crowder dared to oppose someone who is gay and called this gay man names. Schools are forcing LGBT lifestyles and concepts on small children, and disallowing parents to have a say about it if they tell them it’s happening at all. In fact, transgender activists are currently working to try to take your kids from you if you deny any spark of transgenderism in your child at all, whether it’s legitimate or not.

That’s just one bit of the icing on a much larger activist cake.

While the LGBT community may have to suffer criticisms about the content of its parades or jokes about their habits and traditions, they can rest easy knowing that this happens to everybody else on the planet. Everyone has their ways criticized and analyzed. Everyone is given third-person takes. Everyone is going to be the butt of a joke at some point. Being gay doesn’t exclude you from the discerning eye that is human society. Making yourself a sacred cow isn’t going to stop it from happening.

In fact, making yourself a sacred cow in the age of the internet is likely going to make it happen more.

And that’s okay. In fact, it’s good for you. No one individual or group should consider themselves beyond reproach, as those kinds of people end up hurting themselves and others with their undeserved sense of self-importance and inability to learn from mistakes.

And there definitely are mistakes occurring within the LGBT community that need to be addressed posthaste.

For instance, the sexualization of children is consistently seen in the LGBT community with kids like “Desmond is Amazing” who is being thrust into the spotlight as a representative for “drag kids.” The sexualizing of an eight-year-old is gross and has gone far beyond allowing a boy to dress up as a girl. He’s dancing in front of audiences at gay bars at 2 a.m. while they throw money at him.

This infamous clip of a half-naked boy dancing sexually as a crowd gathers around him shows just how bad the problem of sexualizing children is within the LGBT community. Then there are the aforementioned attempts by public schools to drill transgenderism and homosexuality into the heads of children.

Problems like these need to be addressed and stopped immediately, but they’re not. We’re told we must either ignore or even applaud things like this.

I want to be very clear that I do not believe everyone who is LGBT agrees with the kind of disgusting things that happen within the LGBT community, or the overt attempts to control society. This is definitely the work of activists and those who follow their every whim. I’m positive that many feel as disgusted as anybody else does.

It’s hard to take action because many people fear the activist community, even within LGBT circles. Speaking out makes you a pariah, and if it’s your own circles that are rejecting you, it can be very difficult. At some point, however, we all have to recognize that we’re individuals with individual feelings about specific things. That the dislike of one thing doesn’t mean a dislike of a person or a group of people. That there is a moral line we should draw and stick to when it comes to forcing others how to live, or what we push on children.

Once we embrace the idea of individualistic thinking, much of the problems the right and the LGBT community have will dissolve. Not at all of it, but enough of it to truly bring about a peaceful understanding. LGBT people and right-leaning people get along all the time every single day. We’re definitely not enemies, and we shouldn’t let others make us so.

Women Realizes She’s Gay After Watching a Hillary Skit on SNL

Shortly after Donald Trump shocked the world in 2016, NBC’s Saturday Night Live went into collective mourning. They ditched the comedy and decided to instead have Kate MacKinnon, who plays Hillary Clinton in sketches, sing a rendition of “Hallelujah” to all the heart broken souls out there.

It was sad and pathetic, which means that the media and liberals thought it was groundbreaking and powerful.

Apparently it touched people in more ways than one.

Here’s some excerpts.

My life would change forever after a simple Google search in November 2016. I had just seen Kate McKinnon perform the song “Hallelujah” on SNL and discovered that she’s a lesbian. That shocked me because she didn’t fit the awful stereotype often depicted in the media.

I quickly declared her my “new girl crush.” But it was more than that.

At that moment, I realized that I wanted a relationship with a woman like her — but I felt terrible for even having this thought, as someone who was faithfully married.

It was slowly becoming clear to me that I was not straight.

She’d go on to leave her husband and two children.

It’s actually a pretty sad story.

The question becomes what she thought she was before all this? Take this line for example.

By the time you reach your 30s, you think you know yourself — your likes, your dislikes, what inspires you, what makes you tick.

But there I was, at 36 years old, realizing I didn’t know myself at all.

I had everything I thought made my life perfect. I was married to my best friend and we had two beautiful, healthy and hilarious children, with successful careers and a beautiful home.

If you read the article, there’s no indication that she ever had feelings for women before she saw Kate MacKinnon on SNL.

This sounds more like a mid-life crisis, coupled with a knee jerk reaction to abandon a spouse and kids that she made a commitment to. It wouldn’t surprise me if she changes her mind again down the road.

I think the “profiles in courage” aspect of this as presented by CNN is also a bit much. Even if this woman’s transformation is genuine, does it deserve to be celebrated? If a man watches a bikini competition and realizes he only like large chested women with blond hair, can he leave his wife and kids to the cheers of CNN? I mean that seriously. On a logical level, there’s no real difference there besides the fact that one struggle is considered acceptable.

I constantly had to remind myself, “You get one life. This is your life and no one else’s.”

Maybe, but our life does affect other people and there is such a thing as self-sacrifice for those you love. Am I suggesting she should have stayed with her children in the face of her new feelings? It depends, but that should have been an option. Commitments like having children in life can’t just be run from and there would be plenty of time to chase the lesbian dream later in life.

She made a decision though and now everyone will live out the consequences. That’s part of living in a free country.

Admittedly, it’s still a little weird that a Hillary sketch singing “Hallelujah” is what flipped the switch here.
