Students Walk Out of School Shooting Vigil After Democrat Politicians Try to Politicize the Tragedy

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-2 Students Walk Out of School Shooting Vigil After Democrat Politicians Try to Politicize the Tragedy walk out student protest Sen. Bennett Politics Moms Demand Action Highlands Ranch Shooting Hacks gun control Gross Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Disgusting Display democrats Colorado Brady Group Activists

A pretty incredible scene played out last night at a vigil being held for the victims of the Highlands Ranch school shooting, which occurred on Tuesday.

The students expected the event to be one honoring of their friends. Instead, they got a lineup of Democrat politicians and activists pushing a political agenda, including using it as an election rally.

The grossness of it all was too much for the students. They stormed out of the building, deciding to instead go stand in the rain to continue to vigil.

There is no ambiguity about why the students did this. Multiple sources are reporting comments from the students saying it was specifically because these Democrat politicians and hack activists decided to interject their own politics into what was supposed to be a solemn occasion focused on the victims.

Further showing their disdain, the students then began to chant “mental health” as they crowded around a flag pole holding up their phones for light.

This was not the time or place for these Democrats and activists to hold a gun control/2020 election rally. It’s unbelievably insensitive for them to try to do so and it ignores the greater issues at stake here when talking about these shootings.

The guns in this case were stolen. Laws already prohibit everything that occurred here. What could have prevented this wasn’t more meaningless gun laws, as many of the students recognized. Instead, there needs to be a focus on dealing with mental illness. The warning signs were all there. These two students were deeply troubled and their social media postings alone showed that.

Instead of trying to use school shooting victims as pawns and bashing “thoughts and prayers,” there are actually things we could be working towards that could help the situation.

Hopefully, this is wake up call to liberals who continue to gracelessly politicize this issue while ignoring common sense solutions that don’t fit their narrative.

Trump Is About to Do Something Long Overdue to Combat Judicial Tyranny

One of the most concerning aspects of the Trump Presidency has been random judges deciding to dictate policy to the entire country with national injunctions. Even if you dislike to the President, the idea that a judge in San Francisco can stop all asylum reforms, for example, based on clearly political reasons should bother you. It’s a complete subversion of how the system was designed to work.

The founders would have laughed at the idea of “judicial supremacy” and called it tyranny. They never intended for low-level judges to be able to dictate national, constitutionally supported policy. Slowly though, over the course of hundreds of years, we’ve arrived at the point where national injunctions are being routinely abused simply to oppose Trump, while not being based in any sound aspect of law.

Finally, it appears someone is ready to do something about it.

Vice President Pence on Wednesday announced that the administration will challenge the ability of federal district court judges to issue nationwide injunctions that halt policies advocated by President Trump.

The administration’s move — aimed at pushing back at unfavorable decisions from lower courts across the country — would set the stage for a vast legal debate and battle over the role that national injunctions play in the courts.

This is long overdue.

The list of ridiculous decisions by lower court judges against Trump is massive. Instead of doing something about it, the Supreme Court has chosen to handle each piecemeal to this point. That’s led to a big backlog of cases the administration is likely to win but are stuck waiting for.

National injunctions (aside from decisions by the Supreme Court) were not even a thing until 150 years after the founding of the country. As Justice Clearance Thomas has pointed out, they appear to be in direct conflict with Article III.

Injunctions that prohibit the Executive Branch from applying a law or policy against anyone…have become increasingly common. District courts, including the one here, have begun imposing universal injunctions without considering their authority to grant such sweeping relief. These injunctions are beginning to take a toll on the federal court system—preventing legal questions from percolating through the federal courts, encouraging forum shopping, and making every case a national emergency for the courts and for the Executive Branch.

I am skeptical that district courts have the authority to enter universal injunctions. These injunctions did not emerge until a century and a half after the founding. And they appear to be inconsistent with longstanding limits on equitable relief and the power of Article III courts. If their popularity continues, this Court must address their legality.

There are a few avenues for the administration to get this before the Supreme Court. They could use an injunction already placed on a policy or start a new challenge questioning the veracity of the power starting in a lower court. Either way, this needs to happen.

The Supreme Court has been sitting on it’s hands on several big questions, mainly at the behest of Justice Roberts. Instead of having the guts to reign in lower courts they are continually having to overturn, Roberts has chosen to handle things piecemeal due to his philosophy of very narrow decision making. He needs to get over that and take this issue up. Rule one way or the other on whether lower courts can decide national policy based only on their whims.

The current system encourages judge shopping and allows clearly legal execution of power to be usurped by unelected judges. That can’t work long term and it’s dangerous to our governmental system.

This shouldn’t be a partisan issue. You can think Trump is the worst President in history, but no one with any care for constitutional governance should be supportive of what some of these lower court judges are dong. It’s time for the Supreme Court to do it’s job and make a decision on what’s happening.

Race Obsession: Here’s How The Best and the Brightest Covered The Royal Birth

Westlake Legal Group Small-Royal-Baby-620x322 Race Obsession: Here’s How The Best and the Brightest Covered The Royal Birth racism Prince Harry meghan markle john blake Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats Culture Carla Hall Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor Allow Media Exception

screen grab: The Today Show’s Facebook page https://www.today.com/video/meghan-markle-and-prince-harry-pose-for-1st-photos-with-royal-baby-59172421845

 

A stunning headline appeared on CNN following the birth of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the first child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

“How black will the royal baby be?” asked CNN. Yes, this was the headline to a story written by CNN writer and producer John Blake.

Blake writes, “There are questions about how to racially define the royal baby.”

He’s not kidding.

He continues:

Left unsaid is something no one has seriously suggested: Why not call the baby white? Why? Because much of the talk about the baby’s racial identity has echoes of the one-drop rule from slavery and the Jim Crow era.

But let’s not use the royal birth to trot out a dangerous myth.

Let’s not turn this child into another “Great Mixed-Race Hope.”

We’ve seen this story before. A mixed-race person is elevated to a position of prominence. They’re touted as proof of racial progress, part of a Brown New World in which racism will inevitably collapse in the future because there will be so many interracial relationships.

The only person trotting out dangerous myths and turning this child into another “Great Mixed-Race Hope” is you. The baby is three days old. This is nuts.

Similarly, the Los Angeles Times’ Carla Hall wrote an article entitled, “Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry raise their baby to be black?

But I’m guessing that one of his first questions to his parents will be: Am I black? The answer: Yes, you are. And if he didn’t guess it from looking at his light-skinned mother, then he need only look at his maternal grandmother, Doria Ragland, who lives in Los Angeles.

I doubt that will be one of Archie’s first questions and this is an incredibly racist statement.

Then, Hall, who is a member of the LA Times editorial board, takes it further.

Baby Sussex, as he’s called for the moment, will have an extraordinarily privileged life. We can only hope that he will live, eventually, in a post-racial world. Still, he needs to know about what it means to be a black person in the world today. Of course, it means dozens of things. His life will largely be his to make. There is no one “black experience” — except, perhaps, a cop stopping you because you look like a suspect. I highly doubt that’s going to happen to the young Sussex.

She says there is no one “black experience,” but if she really had to choose, it would be a cop stopping you because you look like a suspect. What would she chose for the one “white experience?” Oh, I know. Constantly being labeled as a racist perhaps?

Will every reference to this child in the mainstream American press be prefaced with “the biracial?” As in “the biracial Royal,” “the mixed-race Archey,” or “Prince Harry and Meghan Markles’ mixed-race son?”

Unfortunately, the answer is likely to be yes.

Memo to liberals: Not everything in the world has to do with race, but the left’s obsession with identity politics tries to make it so.

CBS Censors Scene About Chinese Censorship, Revealing Hollywood’s Shift in Artistic Ethics

Westlake Legal Group the-good-fight CBS Censors Scene About Chinese Censorship, Revealing Hollywood’s Shift in Artistic Ethics The Good Fight Television Popular Culture Hollywood Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment Culture communism China Censorship CBS

 

Just the latest example where Hollywood shows it no longer clings to artistic integrity when money is on the line.

The CBS television show “The Good Fight”, (available on the CBS All Access streaming service) is a spinoff of the previous CBS primetime hit “The Good Wife”. The program is a political-based drama that is fully immersive in real-time politics, with plots that involve real life named individuals in DC life.

In its desire to infuse contemporary storylines a recent episode was addressing the issue of China and the ruling government’s stronghold on that country’s cultural offerings. The show had a brief scene included mentioning the Chinese Communist party tendencies to censor and control the content, and in a bit dark irony CBS ended up censoring the scene. It appears the network decided late in the process that the brief scene was too sensitive to the liking of the Chi-Coms.

Viewers had initially believed the blacked out screen time was an inclusion by the writers, making a wry comment on the issue of censorship. One of the show’s writers verified that it was not a dose of intentional satire but an official move made by the network. This was eventually confirmed by an official comment from executives.

In a statement, CBS All Access said: “We had concerns with some subject matter in the episode’s animated short. This is the creative solution that we agreed upon with the producers.” A spokeswoman declined to comment further.

The animated short segment was a musical interlude, listing off a number topics that have been banned on the mainland. Supposedly, after receiving initial approval for the segment, it was decided it had to be removed just weeks ahead of the airing of the episode. This is but one example of American entertainment studios showing a growing acceptance for censoring their own products to appease the communist leadership in China.

 

The Quaint Days of Bold Artists

It was maybe a generation ago when Hollywood entities would rise up loudly at the mere suggestion that any type of dramatic content should be altered, or worse, removed and stifled as a result of possessing offensive content. There was a time when the phrase “In the name of artistic integrity” was almost a knee-jerk reaction to any level of criticism. The invoking of this phrase has almost fallen to disfavor, and that is a result of two factors — political correctness, and Chinese profits.

These offset influences reflect a willingness of Hollywood in recent years to actually impact its own artist freedom, but in two differing arenas; one domestic and one foreign.

Domestically the issue is usually political correctness. In days past Hollywood would almost sneer at those who might give a voice of disapproval to something portrayed on screen. The First Amendment would commonly be invoked, and the cry of “censorship” would follow, and most of the time that was all that was needed to squelch the complaints.

These days studios find that they are boxed in by their own messaging. For years now (decades?) celebrities and producers have been taking up the cause of oppressed groups and segments of our society. This leads today to the occasional conflict when activists from those same groups declare they are being oppressed by some selected or maybe an objectional portrayal on screen.

What choice does a studio have when a mouthpiece from a particular segment opposes specific content? Even if a targeted film or show does not itself go through the crucible of being censored it can affect decisions made on future content.

A case of this type happened last year when it was announced that Scarlett Johansson was tabbed to play the role of a transexual character in a film project. Trans activists loudly balked at the idea of the role going to a straight performer, and Johansson stepped away from the role. These activists though were short-sighted in their outrage, as the actress was also a producer on the film, so her removal meant the project itself has been killed off. Not only will their acceptable performer be denied work but a story centered on a trans character now will not be told.

 

The Yuan Thing More Important Than Art

The story in China is less social and more financial…or entirely so. The Chinese marketplace has exploded over the past decade, specifically with motion pictures. The Chi-Com government has worked hard to greatly expand the number of theaters across the country, all of them state-run. This means they also control the content shown on those mushrooming screens. Currently, Hollywood, while salivating at the prospect, is only permitted to have a few dozen titles released on the mainland each year.

The result of this fertile but challenging market is not only are studios jockeying for limited slots and currying favor with the Chinese film authorities they are also willing to capitulate. If the Chi-Com film board dictates that certain content in a film is unacceptable to them they will demand it either be removed, or the title is denied a release. Growingly Hollywood opts for the former choice, artistic freedom be damned.

By example, Disney was willing to trim a character out of one of its “Pirates of the Caribbean” titles because the Chinese pirate was deemed offensive. In order to play in China “Iron Man 3” watered down the character Mandarin to make him palpable for the Chinese censors, and an additional four minutes of footage made with Chinese performers was spliced into the Chinese cut. In one ridiculous example, a Tom Cruise chase scene from the “Mission Impossible” franchise that was actually filmed in China was ordered to be cut out of the film; scenes in a neighborhood showed laundry drying on clotheslines, and the censors did not want the rest of the world to now most citizens do not own washers and dryers in their homes.

The leverage the Chi-Coms have over Hollywood is more than simply access to their theater marketplace. Most studios are part of multinational corporations, and if the Chinese authorities are angered enough they could also dictate that access to other markets is impacted. If a Disney-owned Marvel film provokes them enough, maybe permission for a theme park is denied. If a Sony Entertainment film offends then possibly imports from its electronics division could be embargoed. The desire to stay on the good side of the ruling party could be felt across numerous divisions of a corporation.

The starkest example was seen with the remake of the film “Red Dawn”. MGM produced the new version in 2009, with the United States being invaded by the Chinese military. The struggling studio could not release the film on its own, and as a result it faced a massive problem; no other company would distribute their film. Though an entirely MGM-made product all studios and distributors declined to release “Red Dawn” out of fear of angering the Chi-Com authorities. This meant MGM had a completed film that it could place in theaters, so they had to go through the expense of digitally “scrubbing” all Chinese iconography from their film and converting the invading army to the North Koreans.

CBS did not need the MGM example to arrive at its decision — it had its own history to look back on for reference. “The Good Wife” found itself banned in China following an episode that had a negative portrayal of Chinese authorities. Currently “The Good Fight” is not under a ban. According to one person affiliated with the show:

He was told that CBS had concerns for the safety of its employees in China if the segment were included. CBS also has a Chinese audience, and when releasing content that is critical of China, American entertainment companies often have to weigh the risk of having their shows or movies blocked in the country.

These are the kind of moves on the finished product that not so long ago were unthinkable. Hollywood now appears more than willing to let their artistic integrity take a back seat to a chance at bigger profits, and it should only continue to do so. Within the next couple of years, the Chinese annual box office gross is expected to exceed that of North America for the first time. As the studios have shown they are more than willing to bow to the pressure of the Chinese censors in order to preserve access to a booming marketplace.

Converse Announces Line of LGBT Shoes Featuring An 11-Year-Old In Drag

Converse is releasing a line of their popular Chuck Taylor shoes that focuses on the LGBT community. This is all well and good, but the brand is also promoting the 11-year-old drag queen Desmond Napoles (aka “Desmond is Amazing”) along with it.

The clothing company released a tweet on Wednesday promoting the new line with Desmond at the forefront. The tweet indicated that they’re launching their “Pride Collection” and were partnering with six individuals known for being within the LGBT community.

Following the link to the site, we’re given a slider with each individual picture, how they’re a part of the LGBT community, and a given a quote from them.

Desmond is displayed as a “drag kid” holding a rainbow show with the quote “there is no normal” beneath it.

Desmond has been billed as the future of children in America by LGBT activists. He previously opened up a drag club for kids in New York and made headlines when he danced at a gay bar in New York at 2 a.m. while patrons threw money at him.

While Desmond and those around him try to pass it off as LGBT advocacy, the Desmond is Amazing act has been attempting to normalize the sexualization of children for some time. Desmond is often posing and dancing in ways that grown female models would in order to accentuate certain parts of their body.

Desmond’s parents have been investigated for abuse, but agencies have found nothing to suggest they are actually abusing Desmond.

Converse is the latest brand to engage in a campaign that embraces a social cause. While promoting a line of LGBT clothing is, in itself, not a bad thing, the promotion of Desmond is likely going to stir controversy.

Student Artwork that Portrayed Police Officers as Pigs Removed from a City Building in Ohio After Outcry

Screen grab via WCPO.

A student’s artwork that depicted a pig dressed in a police officer’s uniform was so controversial that it has been pulled from the Madeira Municipal Building in Ohio.

The Cincinnati Inquirer reports:

A piece of student artwork portraying a pig in a police uniform was removed before the opening of a long-running annual art show following complaints.

The Madeira City School District is not identifying the student but said organizers of the annual Madeira Art Show requested removal of the artwork. The piece, along with other student work, was displayed in the Madeira Municipal Building for public viewing prior to the May 5 art show.

Public reaction to the student art, specifically the piece depicting police as pigs, was strong.

[…]

The artwork was part of the student exhibit that hangs annually in the Madeira Municipal building, according to City Manager Tom Moeller. The works feature the original creations by Madeira students of various grade levels. There were dozens of pieces of art displayed.

Per WCPO, the building also houses the city’s police department, which was part of the problem:

The choice to display it in a city building, however, sparked threats against the student artist, outraged calls to the Madeira Police Department — which is headquartered in the same building as the art display — and, ultimately, an early removal. In a statement, Madeira City Schools said it had arrived at the decision “out of concern for the safety of the student.”

Watch their report on the controversy below:

The National Coalition Against Censorship condemned the decision to remove the student’s work:

As defenders of free expression and artistic freedom, the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) condemns the removal of a student artwork from an exhibition in Madeira, Ohio. The removal of the work shows a deep disregard for the young artist’s constitutional right to free expression, and is a flagrant violation of free speech principles. It is a sad day when the message school administrators choose to send to students is to refrain from expressing their opinions about contemporary social issues lest they offend someone.

Judging from the mixed reactions in local news reports to the artwork and the decision to remove it, local residents and community leaders are torn between believing in the First Amendment rights of the student and understanding why the police department would be upset and concerned.

The department did not say in its statement whether or not they had requested the artwork be removed.

We almost made it two days without Ilhan Omar doing something completely awful.

Someone reset the counter because her latest escapade involves supporting terrorism by retweeting multiple pieces of Hamas propaganda. They came from a man named Mehdi Hasan, an Islamist mouthpiece who works for Al Jeezra.

It is objectively false to say that Israel occupies Gaza. They do not and not a single Jew has lived there since 2005. Israel controls their borders because they are also Israel’s borders. That’s not a complicated thing to grasp. The fact that the UN claims an occupation still exists is simply a testimony to how illogically dumb that organization is.

Omar wasn’t content with one retweet though.

There’s one major problem with Omar’s endorsement of Hasan’s statement.

It’s total garbage.

Islamic Jihad admitted that it was one of their rockets falling short that killed the pregnant woman and her niece. Palestinian terrorists could not care less about their own people.

You’d think a self-proclaimed champion of human rights like Omar would speak out against such barbaric treatment but nah. She was quick to spread Hamas propaganda but when the facts go against her world-view, she suddenly falls silent.

This is a woman who sits on the powerful Foreign Affairs Committee.

We passed the point of being able to dress this up as innocent a long time ago. Day after day, Omar finds ways to support terrorists and take blatantly un-American positions. It’s surreal at times, and if you point it out, liberals and the media rush to proclaim that you are inciting violence against her. Absurdity is the word for it.

I keep thinking she’ll finally cross some line where Democrats will go “ok, enough is enough.” I continue to be proven wrong.

Westlake Legal Group ocasio-cortez_1-620x349 There She Goes Again: AOC Manages to Insult Men for Their Ignorance While Displaying Her Own Women The Sexes reproductive health men law Heartbeat Bill Georgia Front Page Stories Front Page Feminism Featured Story Featured Post AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocaio-Cortez Abortion

Yesterday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed the state’s “heartbeat bill” into law. The law, which has drawn sharp criticism from the left, including celebrities like Alyssa Milano and Amy Schumer, prohibits abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected (usually around the 6-week mark) but preserves exceptions for cases of incest, rape, or the life of the mother.

Naturally, everyone’s favorite Democrat had to chime in on the matter:

Way to broad-brush there, Ocasio-Cortez. Let’s see, how many assumptions are rolled up into this one little tweet?

  1. It’s only/primarily men writing the bills;
  2. Those piggy men only know about sexual gratification, not reproduction;
  3. Most women don’t know how their own bodies work and have NO IDEA they’re pregnant before 6 weeks.

Okay – let’s examine these assumptions:

First: Only/primarily men are writing the bills. Took me about 5 seconds to look up the sponsors of Georgia’s HB 481:

  • Ed Setzler (man)
  • Jodi Lott (woman)
  • Darlene Taylor (woman)
  • Josh Bonner (man)
  • Ginny Ehrhart (woman)
  • Micah Gravely (man)

Wait a second…hang on…you mean to tell me there are lady legislators who advocate restricting abortion?! (Brainwashed, Stepford Reps, no doubt!)

Second: The men involved know nothing about women’s bodies other than how they provide sexual gratification. That’s right, you heard Alexandria: Men are ignorant pigs! That includes you, Ed Setzler, and you, Josh Bonner, and you, Micah Gravely. You know nothing about women, their bodies, the reproductive process.  (And don’t know nothin’ ’bout birthin’ no babies!)

Just out of curiosity, I spent 5 more seconds and clicked on their profiles:

Representative Ed Setzler [spouse – Tracie] is a businessman, veteran, and father of four who has served northwest
Cobb County in the Georgia House of Representatives since 2005.

Representative Josh Bonner and his wife Michelle have four children and are members of New Hope
Baptist Church, where Josh serves as a deacon and youth leader.

Representative Micah Gravely resides in Douglasville, South Paulding County, with his devoted wife Heather, their
three beautiful daughters Hope Elizabeth, Bella Faith, and Abigail Jane, and dogs Reagan
and Lucy.

Hmm…would you look at that? They’re all married with children. Now, I’ll freely admit that such status does not necessarily equate to knowledge regarding women’s bodies and their reproductive functioning, but I’m willing to go out on a limb here and surmise that they have at least a basic understanding of menstrual cycles and pregnancy.  And lest one assume the three women co-sponsors have no such understanding, they all have children, as well. And Rep. Lott is an RN.

Third: Most women have no idea they’re pregnant before 6 weeks. Funny. That’s not been my own experience, nor that of most of the mothers I know. I do get that contraceptive methods can fail. But outside of those instances, you generally know when you’ve had unprotected sex, and you generally know when your period’s gone AWOL. Unless you’re in denial.

I do find it interesting that the underlying premise of Ocasio-Cortez’s reproductive snark is that women don’t legislate and/or don’t support pro-life measures and/or don’t understand how their own bodies work. Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations.

And as for her assertion that “It’s relatively common for a woman to have a late period + not be pregnant,” one must wonder just exactly how/why a woman who’s not pregnant would be seeking an abortion?

I believe my colleague, Joe Cunningham summed it up best:

The Planned Parenthood Where Brian Sims Tried to Doxx Christians Is Unsanitary and Dangerous

The Pennsylvania Planned Parenthood where Rep. Brian Sims harassed and attempted to doxx Christians praying in front of it is apparently a mess of failed safety inspections and failed sex abuse reports.

According to the Daily Caller, it obtained reports from state inspectors that showed it had repeatedly failed safety and cleanliness standards, and worse, failed to report sex abuse of children:

Inspectors failed the Philadelphia clinic in 13 of its last 23 inspections, including a revisit in 2018 because it had not corrected the deficiencies identified in a prior visit. Inspectors also identified a wide range of safety problems at the clinic since 2011, including failure to report sex abuse of children and improper storage of aborted babies, according to records from the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

These “safety problems” included used syringes scattered across the floor from a spilled jar, improper storage of drugs, violation of fire safety standards, and “ice and frost build up in a freezer, where the remains of aborted babies were improperly stored in red biohazard bags,” according to the Daily Caller.

The Daily Caller reported that the Planned Parenthood had passed its last inspection, but could not find what punishments the Planned Parenthood had suffered as a result of its negligence, but could be made available via FOIA request.

The Daily Caller also reported that the sex abuse cases the Planned Parenthood had failed to report were numerous:

The most egregious failing at the clinic is its failure to follow Pennsylvania child abuse laws, which stipulate a child under the age of 13 is incapable of consenting to sex, and that sex with a child under the age of 16 is a crime if the offender is four or more years older than the child. Health care providers including this clinic are required under the law to report these crimes.

The clinic was found to have failed to report multiple instances in which unmarried girls under the age of 15 came to them pregnant. One of the girls, who was only 13, indicated on a form she first had sex when she was 11. The clinic did not report these instances of potential abuse and criminal violations to the state.

The Daily Caller also added that the clinic also failed seven of their last 14 building inspections.

Rep. Sims defended this Planned Parenthood, suggesting it might be one of the most protested locations in the nation during a video where he practically excused himself for his actions by painting the Planned Parenthood as a place where people get help.

However, the Daily Caller report has made it clear that this is a dangerous place to go.

The 2020 reelection campaign for Mitch McConnell is off to a smooth start with some team merch that has people talking.

The Hill reports:

The reelection campaign for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is selling “Cocaine Mitch” t-shirts, an embrace of the label given to the Kentucky Republican by failed 2018 West Virginia Senate candidate Don Blankenship (R).

[…]

Blankenship last year ran an advertisement in which he said “one of my goals as U.S. senator will be to ditch Cocaine Mitch.”

He later said in a news release that he was referring to McConnell’s “father-in-law who founded and owns a large Chinese shipping company [and] has given Mitch and his wife millions of dollars over the years,” adding that the company was implicated in alleged cocaine smuggling.

Here’s a Twitter image McConnell’s team posted after Blankenship lost his primary race:

The t-shirts cost $35. Here’s what they look like:

In addition to the t-shirts, the campaign is also selling “Cocaine Mitch” stickers for $10:

Liberals are, of course, fauxfended by the t-shirts and stickers:

…. but others think they are pretty nifty and have already placed their orders:

The Senate Majority Leader even reportedly answered his phone last year as “Cocaine Mitch”:

Don’t be surprised if you see “Grim Reaper McConnell” or “Nuclear Mitch” t-shirts one day soon, too:

Like the “Cocaine Mitch” nickname, McConnell embraces the others without a shred of regret:

Indeed:

And oh yeah, this, too:

More, please!
