Are Comedians Finally Fighting Back Against the Far Left’s Cultural Clampdown?

Westlake Legal Group comedian-2125295_1280-620x413 Are Comedians Finally Fighting Back Against the Far Left’s Cultural Clampdown? Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

 

 

Are comedians fighting back against the cultural Marxism of the critics?

So-called political correctness — which, oddly enough, is a line of ideological adherence which is neither political nor correct — has appeared to be clamping down on the comic stage for quite a while.

But there’s recent evidence to suggest those at the mic are trying to bust free.

Buzzfeed recently scolded Dave Chappelle for “truly vile” jokes about transgender people, Michael Jackson, and the #MeToo movement in his Netflix special Sticks and Stones. Vice told folks to “skip” the performance, and Vanity Fair called the act “stale.”

Surely some on the far Left were also none to fond of Dave’s bit on the pro-choice position’s natural conclusion.

These days, as noted by The Daily caller, “One wrong word can get you canceled.”

Just ask Norm Macdonald: His Tonight Show appearance got shut down over his expressed empathy for Roseanne Barr and Louis C.K.

Comedian Nick Di Paolo — who’s politically conservative — told TDC the Left have come all the way ’round:

“It’s come full circle, now they’re eating each other. I’m the counter culture now, guys like me that lean right, those people, the woke ones, they are the culture. That’s how bad it is, that Chappelle and Bill Burr are labeled like the Anti-PC guys.”

Nick believes initial intentions were good:

“It started off with the right instincts. Nobody is for sexual harassment. Now they’ve taken it too…far. They’re lumping [Louis C.K.] in with Harvey Weinstein. And they’re not making any distinction. They got way ahead of their skiis on that one. It just got crazy.”

Joe Rogan pointed out some of the madness — specifically, the Left’s new notion that men and women are athletically the same — in his new video Triggered:

“It’s not sexist to say that women can’t do big physical labor things as good as giant men can. But people will tell you it is. Well, I’m not sexist. As a matter of fact, my favorite people are all female. I have a wife, and I have three daughters. They’re my favorite people in the world. But I could beat the **** out of all of them.”

In one of Chappelle’s segments, he did an impression of the audience telling a performer if they make a mistake, they’re done:

“If you do anything wrong in your life, and I find out about it, I’m gonna try and take everything away from you. … If I find out, you’re ****ing finished.”

“That’s what the audience sounds like to me,” he explained. “That’s why I don’t be coming out doing comedy all the time, ‘cause y’all…[are] the worst [people] I’ve ever tried to entertain in my…life.”

Some entertainers are echoing the sentiment:

To me personally, it seems that the whole idea of a joke has kind of gone out the window. It’s supposed to be a light comment not meant to be taken seriously.

But boy are there some serious people listening.

“This is the worst time ever to be a celebrity,” Dave lamented. “Everyone’s doomed.”

Beto Channels Booker’s T-Bone When He Claims Lots Of Texans Are Giving Up Their AR-15s Because They Don’t Feel Safe

Beto O’Rourke by Gage Skidmore, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Robert Francis Beta Beto O’Rourke may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but he can learn. You know how NJ Senator and presidential aspirant Cory Booker has at various times claimed to have a drug dealer friend named T-bone and girlfriend (though I’m sure anyone as relentlessly and remorselessly heterosexual as Booker has dozens of girlfriends)? Now Beto has one-upped his mentor an invented dozens of Texans who are supportive of his promise to sent SWAT to your door to “buy back” your AR-15 or equivalent.

Using guns to hunt or for self-defense makes a lot of sense to us here in Texas. But even from those Texans who own AR-15s, they’ve told me this themselves: ‘I don’t need this. I don’t need it to hunt. I don’t need it to protect myself. It was fun to use. I like taking it out to the range, but if giving this back or cutting it to pieces or selling it to the government helps to keep us safer, then by all means let’s do it.’

First off, this is a lie on its face. If you are only using your modern sporting rifle for hunting, target practice, or self-defense then you really aren’t much of a danger to anyone. If you are a big enough p***y to say what Beto says is being said to him, you are manifestly not only not a danger but fairly useless. No sane person believes this is the case.

The real reason that Beto is doing this is because his bald statement, aimed at the cheap seats at the Houston debate, about “Hell yes we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore,” gave the entire gun rights movement the clarity they need to see what the final objective is (assuming they were too dense to figure that out earlier). In fact, Beto was so clear that Democrats are whining about the danger he’s done (see Brandon Morse’s Even Democrat Lawmakers Wish O’Rourke Hadn’t Said He’d Take Our Guns).

All Beto is doing here is damage control. He’s telling a bald-faced lie knowing that a compliant and sympathetic media will go along and support him.

Mike Pompeo Blames Iran For Massive Attack On Saudi Arabian Oil Facilities

Westlake Legal Group mike-pompeo-620x414 Mike Pompeo Blames Iran For Massive Attack On Saudi Arabian Oil Facilities Yemen Saudi Arabia Politics Mike Pompeo Iran International Affairs Houthi Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story Allow Media Exception

Earlier today a major Saudi Arabian crude oil field was hit by an attack. The first reports said that the attack had been carried out by 10 drones (I don’t know how they convinced Jim Swift and the rest of the Bulwark gang to strap on explosive jet packs and yet… okay, that’s a joke, there is no known jetpack that could lift Swift) and the Iranian allied and supported Houthis in Yemen claimed responsibility.

According to the Wall Street Journal, this oil field produces about 5% of the world’s crude oil and is now off line. The Saudis claim they will have it back in operation by Monday. The operative word is “claim.”

Some things in the story, however, never made sense. For instance, the range was well over 500 miles from Houthi territory (here I’m just measuring from the Yemeni border) which is extreme for the drones they have, particularly if they are carrying enough ordnance to cause the damage we see in the video. The Houthi use the Iranian Qasef-1 drone which has a range of about less than 300 miles on a suicide mission and can carry a payload of about 60-lbs. Blame me for the bad graphic:

Westlake Legal Group saudi-strikes-620x710 Mike Pompeo Blames Iran For Massive Attack On Saudi Arabian Oil Facilities Yemen Saudi Arabia Politics Mike Pompeo Iran International Affairs Houthi Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story Allow Media Exception

It didn’t take long, however, for imagery to be produced that indicated something different:

What you’re looking at there appears to be a cruise missile that pancaked enroute. This makes much more sense than an drone because the we know the Houthi have deployed cruise missiles before and the range and payload make the attack and the damage from the attack plausible.

Operative word: plausible.

Just a couple of hours ago, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo killed off a perfectly good narrative.

What does he mean that there is no evidence the attack came from Yemen?

Saudi and American officials are investigating the possibility that attacks on Saudi oil facilities Saturday involved cruise missiles launched from Iraq, questioning Yemeni rebel claims of responsibility, people familiar with the matter said.

But officials around the globe investigating the attack questioned the Houthi claims and suggested the strike may have come from Iraq, to the north, rather than Yemen, to the south. Iran supports a host of Shiite militias in Iraq.

A direct attack of this scale on Saudi Arabia by Iranian proxy forces in Iraq definitely is a different situation than Yemeni rebels shooting cruise missiles. Rather than the low grade war that Saudi Arabia is involved in with the Houthi, this now threatens to be come a much more significant and broader conflict that could suck in the United States and Israel.

Pete Buttigieg’s Association With the Abortionist Who Stockpiled Baby Corpses in His Home Is Hardly Surprising

Westlake Legal Group pete-buttigieg-620x348 Pete Buttigieg’s Association With the Abortionist Who Stockpiled Baby Corpses in His Home Is Hardly Surprising women's pavilion Ulrich Klopfer Politics Pete Buttigieg Indiana Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats Allow Media Exception Abortion

Pete Buttigieg by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Pete Buttigieg, in addition to being a deeply dishonest man who constantly lies to rationalize and defend his lifestyle and beliefs, is an abortion fanatic. How much of that is due to some personal animus he has towards heterosexual couples and how much is simply founded on his politics, but his views on abortion are extreme even by the standard of the Democrat party. For instance, Buttigieg has claimed that a baby can be killed up until the moment it draws its first breath. And obscenely claims there is Scriptural support for this view.

[Pro-life people] hold everybody in line with this one piece of doctrine about abortion, which is obviously a tough issue for a lot of people to think through morally. Then again, there’s a lot of parts of the Bible that talk about how life begins with breath. Even that is something that we can interpret differently. . . . No matter what you think about the cosmic question of how life begins, most Americans can get on board with the idea of, ‘I might draw the here. You might draw the line there.’ The most important thing is the person who should be drawing the line is the woman making the decision.

That view is not only anti-science it is sacrilegious and utterly heretical:

Today, as my colleague Brandon Morse reports, a home belonging to a deceased abortionist was found to contain some 2,246 sets of remains of dead babies. The abortionist was Ulrich Klopfer. He was forcibly retired in 2015, and his clinic closed, after it was found he’d performed abortions on at least two girls under 13 years of age and violated state law by not reporting it. This is the worst case:

In particular, according to Niki Kelly of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette, many of the board members were particularly struck by Klopfer’s nonchalant attitude regarding the case of a 10-year-old girl who had been raped by her uncle. The doctor failed to notify the police even after learning that the parents were going to keep the matter secret. One board member stated that what bothered her most was Klopfer’s striking lack of medical judgment and competence.

What makes this case more interesting is that Klopfer’s clinic was located in South Bend, Indiana. And while he was there, good ol’ Godly Mayor Pete (or Alcalde Pete, if you were watching the Spanish portion of the Democrat debate) intervened to help him out.

In Buttigieg’s first year in office, a pro-life crisis pregnancy center attempted to open right next door to the abortuary run by Klopfer at the time, it was called the Women’s Pavilion. The pro-life group, headed by a guy named Shawn Sullivan, promised to not allow pro-life demonstrators to use their property but Buttigieg intervened to prevent it getting permission to open. Undeterred, Sullivan opened a Catholic chapel next door and in a short period of time the complaints against Klopfer and the impact of the chapel forced the Womens’ Pavilion to close.

Given Buttigieg fetishization of abortion and Klopfer’s status as South Bend’s only abortionist, it is difficult to imagine that there was not a more extensive and substantive relationship waiting to be uncovered.

This is the kind of man Buttigieg is. He defended Klopfer when his license was under attack. He provided the administrative firepower necessary to overturn a zoning decision that would have put a pro-life pregnancy center next door to Klopfer. And he thinks a child still attached to the umbilical cord can be legally killed because it isn’t yet breathing.

Dana Loesch Drops the Bomb on Beto for Threatening to ‘Forcibly Steal’ Americans’ Property

Westlake Legal Group dana-loesch-tucker-carlson-tonight-SCREENSHOT-620x331 Dana Loesch Drops the Bomb on Beto for Threatening to ‘Forcibly Steal’ Americans’ Property Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

[Screenshot from TheDC Shorts, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeFUPZsYrno]

 

Beto O’Rourke — who it would appear is trying to see just how badly he can lose the Democratic nomination — keeps telling people that their America’s-most-popular hunting rifle — the type that’s rarely used in the commission of a crime — is a “weapon of war.” Furthermore, during Thursday’s debate, he suggested that he and others have previously allowed those of you who own the gun to shoot one another, but he’s decided to stop you now:

“Hell, yes — we’re going to take your AR-15…we’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.”

So that’s you — the murderin’ type with your military madness.

Beto’s a whole different type: He’s the kind who inherits millions, marries into a half-billion-dollar fortune, and then promises to fight against privileged wealth.

And if you don’t believe him, he’s not afraid to change a tire and prove it (here).

And if you still don’t believes he’s cool, he can flip a burger and then say the F word (here).

As for the “weapon of war” thing, as I wrote previously, “That’s a nonsense term used to fill incendiary syllables like a similar substance invading a diaper” (For much more, please read my article here).

Is O’Rourke’s candidacy real, or is it a very well-done prank?

Former NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch is erring on the side of caution, so she appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight Friday to address the El Paso native’s new T-shirts:

Speaking to guest host Brian Kilmeade, Dana called Beto’s message a threat to “forcibly steal” Americans’ “lawfully-owned and responsibly-used property.”


“I am absolutely amazed,” she said, “that a lawmaker — that someone running for the highest office in the land — would actually try to raise money off of a threat to the public.”

She’s right — it is absolutely amazing.

Furthermore, Dana asserted that, while Beto is certainly threatening the citizenry, it isn’t a threat for people to say they won’t allow him to take what is theirs:

“And I want to be really clear about this. When you tell law abiding Americans that you are going to forcibly steal their lawfully owned and responsibly used property, that’s a threat. And saying that ‘no you are not, I want to be able to defend myself in return.’ That is not a threat.”

Such an issue did indeed arise on Twitter Thursday, as Texas state representative Briscoe Cain posted this in response:

Loesch also made reference to the infamous Wounded Knee massacre, in which hundreds of men, women and children of the Lakota Indian tribe were killed by U.S. soldiers:

“[I ]don’t know if that’s what Democrats and Beto O’Rourke are trying to move us towards. I sincerely hope not. I hope they respect the law of the land. I hope they respect the Constitution. But, I just find this talk reprehensible and I think that the party needs to show where they are with Americans and condemn it.”

It also sheds more light, in her view, on red flag laws:

“Beto O’Rourke just tried red flagging Americans, so I hope all of those Republicans [learn] this is where red flag laws get you.”

As for the T-shirt, people are posting their own in response:

A little Doc Holiday for ya there.

It looks as if there’s even a libertarian response:

Beto’s done a bang-up job making himself quickly irrelevant in the  race for 2020 White House euphoria. But will his far, far Left antics benefit him in the long run? Let us all know in the Comments section. If y’all can stop shootin’ each other long enough to type.

A Hit-Making Music Star Announces That He is No Longer a Man

Westlake Legal Group hollywood-595645_1280-620x433 A Hit-Making Music Star Announces That He is No Longer a Man Uncategorized transgender sam smith pronouns Music LGBT Hollywood gender neutral gender identity Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Culture celebrity Allow Media Exception

 

 

Every generation has its revelations.

For some among the most recent batch, profundity seems directly linked to single syllable words.

On Friday, music star Sam Smith released something brand new.

His latest project isn’t an album, video, or tour; it’s a request to be referred to by certain pronouns.

That would be, the gender-neutral kind.

He’s finally come to terms with it.

Sam described the new acceptance on Instagram:

“I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out. I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but f*** it! I understand there will be many mistakes and misgendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now.”

The “Stay with Me” singer said he can’t wait to find out what it’s like to be neither boy nor girl:

“P.S. I am at no stage just yet to eloquently speak at length about what it means to be non binary but I can’t wait for the day that I am.”

It appears that, for some, a wholly new defining moment of life has entered the zeitgeist: When you’re ready, you make the announcement — are you an “h” subjective pronoun person or an “sh”? Or do you like “they” best of all?

Sam’s gone with option C, and he’s flyin’ high due to the newfound freedom:

“Love you all. I’m scared sh**less, but feeling super free right now. Be kind x”

He also included a list of “activists and leaders of the non binary/trans community” that have helped him find his way to clarity.

Those included television actor Laverne Cox (here), the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Mermaids UK (which “[supports#transgender & #gender variant children & their families”), and @transnormativity.

That last one appears to be the account of an individual serving as an exemplar on the web for the gender neutral and fat-shamed:

View this post on Instagram

there is no singular way to be

A post shared by being queer is not a sin (@transnormativity) on Aug 19, 2019 at 2:50pm PDT

It’s a new road ahead for Sam Smith. We’ll see how the change manifests itself in the future.

Jamele Hill Says Trump’s Made White Democratic Voters Unlikely To Vote For Anyone But Biden

Jamele Hill’s need to inject race into every argument isn’t really that horrible. She’s doing the heavy lifting to support and encourage her community, and that’s a good thing. And even when her arguments are borderline hypocritical — such as her recent assertion that black athletes only attend historically black colleges (to help those colleges compete financially) — it’s easy to understand where she’s coming from (even if she’ll likely never answer why it would be ok for black athletes to do that but not any other race without calls — and for good reason— of racism).

But her attempts to analyze politics? Horrible.

Take the tweet above. She’s responding to a question a Twitter follower asked her when she proclaimed Biden’s only role as a Democrat frontrunner is to keep the white vote because they wouldn’t vote for anyone else on the Democratic debate stage.

Of course the implication is that white people won’t vote for anyone not white, male, or heterosexual. Which is a pretty bigoted view of the world. But the idea that Trump — who has apparently caused voters to experience auditory or visual hallucinations, or moments of intense rage, self-loathing, or overwhelming guilt the way survivors of war or sexual assault or child abuse do — is the reason Democrat voters might prefer Biden is simply…absurd.

Booker, Warren, Harris, Buttigieg, Yang et al may not be electable, as Hill suggests. But it’s not because of Donald Trump. Like every other candidate, their messages have to resonate and voters have to trust they’ll do the job to make their vote or donation worth it. So far, Biden has that locked down.

At some point, Ms. Hill, real winners take responsibility for themselves and they succeed on their own merit without having to point a finger at what’s been stopping them.

You, as a well-known writer and television personality, surely have experienced how much work it takes to make it. Surely you wouldn’t suggest the only way you succeeded was because someone else — a competitor — was marginalized to clear the path for you. That would be mitigating your own hard-won success.

Trump’s existence is neither elevating Biden nor marginalizing any other Democratic candidate. They all, like you, are rising or falling based on their individual skills and charisma. It’s insulting to them and voters to suggest otherwise.

Amid Absolute Absurdity, Thursday’s Debate Spotlighted America as a Shining City Upon a Hill

Westlake Legal Group usa-1149896_1280-620x410 Amid Absolute Absurdity, Thursday’s Debate Spotlighted America as a Shining City Upon a Hill Uncategorized Liberty immigration Illegal Immigration Front Page Stories Featured Story elections debate Dave Rubin Culture Campaigns Beto O'Rourke Andrew Yang Allow Media Exception 2020

 

 

During Thursday night’s Democratic debate — due to which Dave Rubin lamented he picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue — there was, as expected, mucho goofiness.

Our rich Uncle Bernie called Trump the most dangerous president in history:

And Beto O’Rourke — who seems absolutely hellbent on losing as steeply as is mathematically possible — taped what BlazeTV called a campaign ad for Donald Trump. The anti-privileged millionaire privileged millionaire vowed to take away your hunting rifles because, prior to now, “they’ve” been allowing you to shoot each other:

But there was at least one great thing offered during Thursday night’s showout blowout: Andrew Yang’s truly American story, about an actual immigrant participating in actual immigration — that would be, rather than what many Democrats and media figures have been inaccurately calling “immigration,” which is in fact its opposite.

In a bizarre move, the term has of late been employed to mean “choosing to not take part in our immigration system.”

But Andrew conjured it correctly. His origins are inspiring:

“My father grew up on a peanut farm in Asia with no floor. And now, his son is running for president. That is the immigration story that we have to be able to share with the American people.”

Andrew truly is proof that the American dream is alive and well for those who believe in a better life — in this greatest country on earth, what Ronald Reagan called “a shining city upon a hill”:

Being that — were he to receive the nomination — he would ultimately face the GOP incumbent, Andrew understandably tried to contrast himself with Trump. Unfortunately, he did so in a way that made absolutely no sense, given that the purpose of a border barrier is to prevent people from sneaking into the country, not keep people from actually immigrating:

“[I] am the opposite of Donald Trump in many ways. He says, ‘Build a wall;’ I’m going to say to immigrants, ‘Come to America, because if you come here, your son or daughter can run for president. The water’s great.’”

A wall doesn’t keep out immigrants; immigrants come in through immigration. Oh well, it was a Democratic debate; rightfulness could only last so long.

Nonetheless, his story is inspiring. And here’s a bonus: While some on the far Left — including the mayor of New York — have claimed America “was never great”…

…Andrew praised the U.S. and spoke of its “continued” success:

“This country has been a magnet for human capital for generations. If we lose that, we lose something integral to our continued success.”

America is indeed a nation of immigrants, and Andrew Yang is a reminder of that.

It’d be great to see more similar moments during the debates; lamentably, we’re more likely to hear Julián Castro champion taxpayer-funded abortions for men who would otherwise eject infants from their peeholes(?):

Goobers gonna goob.

DOJ Files a Devastating Brief Exposing Jerry Nadler’s Impeachment Inquiry Scam

Westlake Legal Group bill-barr-smiling-620x317 DOJ Files a Devastating Brief Exposing Jerry Nadler’s Impeachment Inquiry Scam steny hoyer scam Politics Nancy Pelosi judiciary committee Jerry Nadler Inquiry impeachment House Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump doj democrats bill barr

Attorney General William Barr appears before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee to make his Justice Department budget request, Wednesday, April 10, 2019, in Washington. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

Recently, I covered Jerry Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee passing rules for an “impeachment inquiry.” As some of us have speculated for months now, this was simply an attempt at stealth impeachment, i.e. getting to use the benefits of impeachment (grand jury access, increased subpoena power, etc.) without having too actually pass articles of impeachment.

The game in this case is that Nadler wants to pretend he’s emperor with no guidelines while not having to pay the political price of having House Democrats actually vote as a majority to impeach. There’s noway the courts should allow that and it would present an enormously dangerous precedent if allowed to proceed.

Now, the DOJ is striking back, signaling they aren’t going to take this nonsense lying down.

Judges, if they are fair, don’t usually like double talk and political games. That’s exactly what the Democrats have been doing. They continually downplay impeachment publicly, claiming that what Nadler is doing isn’t actually an impeachment inquiry, then they run to their base and tell them the opposite. Remember, we’ve been assured by Democrats that what you say publicly matters to how judges should rule on your actions (i.e. Trump’s tweets). Meanwhile, they want to the courts to play along with this scam, giving them near unlimited power of investigation without them having to go through the proper channels to get it.

Let’s be clear, if Nadler gets away with this, it opens the door for every single House majority to target and handicap a sitting president based on nothing more than supposition and suspicion. Normal oversight is fine. Proclaiming you can override executive privilege and force testimony by abusing impeachment powers is not.

Recently, I covered Jerry Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee passing rules for an “impeachment inquiry.” As some of us have speculated for months now, this was simply an attempt at stealth impeachment, i.e. getting to use the benefits of impeachment (grand jury access, increased subpoena power, etc.) without having too actually pass articles of impeachment.

The game in this case is that Nadler wants to pretend he’s emperor with no guidelines while not having to pay the political price of having House Democrats actually vote as a majority to impeach. There’s noway the courts should allow that and it would present an enormously dangerous precedent if allowed to proceed.

Now, the DOJ is striking back, signaling they aren’t going to take this nonsense lying down.

Judges, if they are fair, don’t usually like double talk and political games. That’s exactly what the Democrats have been doing. They continually downplay impeachment publicly, claiming that what Nadler is doing isn’t actually an impeachment inquiry, then they run to their base and tell them the opposite.
