Leftist Takes Political Bullying to New Level

Threatening political violence if elections don’t go their way was appalling, but that wasn’t rock bottom. They kept digging. A leftist named Leo Guinan demonstrates how far they have descended by sharing the text message he sent to his parents after his father dared show support for Trump:

Due to the signs in the yard, the kids and I will not be down. The current occupant of the White House is preaching hate and violence, endangering the lives and safety of many of my friends. This is not acceptable to me at all. There is a complete disregard for women, minorities, science, ethics, and morality. Please consider if you support Trump that much. Because I hate him that much. I wanted to be upfront and honest about my feelings.

That is, he denies his parents access to their children and grandchildren to punish them for not submitting to his political views.

The author thought over this cruel act — and then congratulated himself for doing the correct thing.

The lack of self-awareness is characteristic of sanctimonious progressives. Note that he denounces the president for “preaching hate,” then acknowledges within a few sentences that he himself is motivated by hate.

Moonbats can’t win with rational arguments, so they bully. That’s why we have cancel culture and hundreds upon hundreds of Black Lives Matter riots. In the absence of pushback, their bullying will never stop, because their ideology is too narrow to encompass the concept of basic decency.

Candace Owens Accuses Amazon of Damaging Her Book

Amazon must not have a complete monopoly yet, because it still sells books leftists don’t want people to read. But there are ways Amazon workers can advance liberal tolerance even while politically nonpreferred books are offered for sale — like the new book by alleged black white supremacist Candace Owens:

Owens followed up with this remark:

“The pettiness will do nothing to thwart sales. Let’s try to get the next 100,000 that I plan to sell out of your warehouse, treated with a bit more respect by the looney lefties packing the product, please.”

No comment from Amazon, according to the New York Post.

In the age of Black Lives Matter and Antifa, vandalism is the mark of the moonbat. If they don’t want you to read something, it is probably worth reading.

Students on Why Trump Should Not Get Nobel Peace Prize

Every president tries mightily to advance peace in the Middle East because of the prestige it would impart. For decades, each of them has failed — until now. Trump brokered a peace agreement between Israel, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain. More Arab countries could follow. Serbia and Kosovo have been at each other’s throats since the 1990s. Trump brokered a peace deal between them as well.

If Obama deserved to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize soon after taking office, despite not having accomplished anything other than getting elected, shouldn’t Trump get one too?

Campus Reform asks students and gets the predictable answer:

True enough, Trump does not deserve a Nobel Peace Prize. Competition for the prize is a popularity contest staged by the liberal elite, and Trump is not popular among liberals.

This exchange sums it up:

Q: Do you think he deserved it?
A: No.
Q: Do you know why he was nominated?
A: I don’t know.

It doesn’t matter why Trump was nominated. They don’t like him because it is politically correct not to like him. Therefore, he does not deserve a Nobel Peace Prize.

Students have to be careful to keep their minds closed, lest unauthorized thoughts infiltrate their heads. These renegade thoughts might then leak from their mouths, resulting in cancelation.

Leftists Continue to Malign Nick Sandmann

Subjecting Kentucky teenager Nick Sandmann to the Two Minutes Hate for wearing a MAGA hat and keeping his cool as he was harassed by bullies of color blew up in the liberal establishment’s face. CNN and the Washington Post were forced to pay massive settlements for defaming him. Yet even now, liberals cannot leave the kid alone. When he spoke at the Republican National Convention recently, Clinton apparatchik Joe Lockhart refused to watch, denouncing him as a “snot nose entitled kid from Kentucky.” Now Sandmann has been accepted to college, enraging ACLU staffer Samuel Crankshaw:

Does anyone else think it’s a bit of a stain on Transylvania University for accepting Nick Sandman? I’m sure it’s a “both sides” defense, but it’s pretty counter to their mission and another instance of there not actually being equal sides to an issue. I think TU should accept anyone willing to have an open mind and engage in debate, regardless of their views. That’s how we all learn. That’s Transy’s mission.

But this kid clearly is a provocateur in training with no intention of learning.

Leftists are all for hearing both sides — except that there is only one side: theirs. So everyone who is not on it must be canceled.

Among the reasons Crankshaw knows Sandmann is a provocateur with no interest in learning:

He is proudly defending Kyle Rittenhouse, who murdered two people for exercising political speech.

Like Sandmann, Rittenhouse is an innocent teenager who was set upon by aggressive leftists. Sandmann defended himself with a smile; being physically attacked, Rittenhouse was forced to use a firearm.

A more dishonest distortion of the Rittenhouse event than Crankshaw’s calumny above would be hard to imagine. We all have a good idea of what really happened. It was captured on video.

The ACLU used to stand for fundamental rights. No right is more fundamental than self-defense.

Now the ACLU stands for advancing leftism by attacking those who stand in its way.

USC Prof Suspended for Saying Chinese Word That Sounds Like N-Word

The thought police have a voracious appetite for transgressors, whom they must extract extraordinary satisfaction from punishing. Because racial slurs are rarely used in this country except when permitted (i.e., when used by blacks or when directed against whites), PC inquisitors invent new ones, designating previously neutral words like “Negro” and “Chinaman” as forbidden. Still there are not enough language infractions, so authorities seize upon innocuous words that vaguely sound like slurs. A DC bureaucrat was forced out of his job for saying “niggardly.” More recently, an accomplished professor at the University of Southern California has been suspended:

Greg Patton, a professor at the university’s Marshall School of Business, was giving a lecture about the use of “filler words” in speech during a recent online class when he used the word in question, saying, “If you have a lot of ‘ums and errs,’ this is culturally specific, so based on your native language. Like in China, the common word is ‘that, that, that.’ So in China it might be ‘nèi ge, nèi ge, nèi ge.’”

USC educrats say Patton is taking “a short term pause while we are reviewing to better understand the situation and to take any appropriate next steps.” That is, he must sit in the doghouse until this blows over. Or maybe it won’t blow over, social justice warriors will call for his head, and he will be canceled like Mike Adams.

As survivors of the Chinese Cultural Revolution could tell you, teaching is a dangerous job in totalitarian countries during ideological purges. Even those without a noncompliant thought in their heads might find themselves in big trouble.

Andrew Cuomo’s Threatening Diatribe Against Trump

Enraged by pressure from Trump on local politicians to restore law and order in “anarchist jurisdictions” like New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo jumped the shark:

“He better have an army if he thinks he’s gonna walk down the street in New York. New Yorkers don’t want to have anything to do with him,” the Democrat said…

Cuomo has already declared that people who are pro-life, who support the constitutional right of self-defense, or who don’t embrace the LGBT agenda are not welcome in his state. Now we see that not even the President is welcome — despite being a New Yorker.

“He can’t have enough bodyguards to walk through New York City, people don’t want to have anything to do with him.”

Three ways to interpret Cuomo’s remarks are: (1) he is threatening the President with violence, which is a violation of federal law; (2) he is encouraging maniacs to attempt an assassination; or (3) he admits that local authorities are so incapable of maintaining order in New York, they can’t even guarantee the President’s safety, though foreign countries around the world manage to do it.

None of these interpretations are flattering to Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo demonstrated how Democrats will bring the country together by denouncing the President as “a clown” and “a tabloid cartoon” whose sister is disgraced by him. Yet we are expected to hate Trump for being nasty and divisive.

The governor also claimed Trump’s “negligence” is the reason New York state suffered the highest COVID-19 death toll. The governor’s critics blame his Health Department’s mandate that forbade nursing homes from turning away COVID-19-positive patients, potentially leading to at least 6,500 deaths.

What Cuomo lacks in competence, he makes up for through projection.

Watch Leftist Mob Terrorize Couple in DC

Rand Paul wasn’t alone. At least he had a police escort. Here’s how the Black Lives Matter mob treats what looks to be a normal decent couple in late middle age, presumably because the wife is wearing a t-shirt supporting the president (or maybe it is the American flag around her waist that set the mob off):

This is what overpaid athletes and Democrat pols kneel to.

What are the odds of this footage showing up on ABC/CBS/NBC/MSNBC/CNN/PBS/etc?

Anyone above a certain age will find it hard to believe that this level of political intimidation would ever take place openly in the streets of the USA, with the complicity of the media, which has been covering it up or supporting it. Still harder to believe is that many voters who are technically American citizens will endorse this by supporting Democrats.

Cancel Culture Psychopaths

Science has spoken; wokesters have a personality disorder. People suffering from dark triad personalities are more likely to engage in victimhood and virtue signaling to achieve wealth, attention, and power.

Dark triad personalities are common among moonbats, particularly among hate hoaxers. They comprise three dominant components: narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy.

Applying the concept of the dark triad personality, Paul Joseph Watson draws a straight line from the Salem Witch Trials to today’s cancel culture:

This indicates that to the extent we tolerate bullying by the woke mob, we have made no progress since the days of witch trials.

American Taliban

Tony Heller notices that just as the Taliban destroyed ancient monuments carved into cliffs in Afghanistan in the name of their intolerant ideology, American leftists want to do the same to Mount Rushmore and Stone Mountain, generally on the grounds of slavery. Yet there are no calls to destroy ancient Aztec pyramids, although those who built them were even further out of step with current standards of political correctness. Nor is there any attempt to address the slavery than still exists today in other parts of the world.

Democrats themselves own a new type of slave: political slaves whose votes are harvested in cities reduced to ruin by liberal policies. Malcolm X had it right that the worst enemy of blacks is what the Chinese call the baizuo.
