Mirror, mirror…

Yes…, mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the most racist of them all?

YOU ARE, DEMOCRATS!

According to Tyler Olsen of Fox News, “A group of Republican House members, led by Rep. Louis Gohmert of Texas, introduced a resolution Thursday that would effectively ban the Democratic Party from the House or force a party name change over past slavery ties — a response to the recent efforts to remove tributes to past members of the Confederacy from the halls of Congress.”

“It specifically cites the Democratic Party platform’s support for slavery between 1840 and 1856, and other racist actions by party members through the early-to-mid 1900s, before calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to ‘remove any items that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy’ from the House and its properties. The resolution also says such a party ‘shall either change its name or be barred from participation in the House of Representatives.’”

Dang, that Louis Gohmert is good!

“Gohmert, in a statement accompanying the bill, told Democrats they should rebrand to ‘avoid triggering’ anyone.

That’s right, Louis!

I’m sure the democrats wouldn’t want to be responsible for forcing any of these snowflakes into a “safe zone!”

This is too good!

Please continue!

‘“As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred,’ Gohmert said. ‘Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.’”

Whaaaat?!

Go Louis, go Louis!

“He added: ‘To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur.’”

What goes around comes around!

Yeah, baby!

aban 12

“The resolution’s co-sponsors are Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Jody Hice, R-Ga., Randy Weber, R-Texas, and Andy Harris, R-Md.”

“It [the resolution] is unlikely to pass, but appears to be meant more as a criticism of allegedly ‘blatant hypocrisy’ around the House’s approval of a measure removing Confederate busts in the Capitol this week. Weber, speaking on the House floor after Gohmert introduced his resolution, criticized ‘cancel culture.’”

‘“The cancel culture train, H.R. 7573, that passed yesterday, was wrong on a deep level. I’m not going to get on that cancel culture train that says we have to do away with any mention or remembrance of everybody or everything that we don’t agree with, or that might have said something we don’t like, didn’t like, or that might have stood for something that we don’t stand for,’ Weber said.”

“The legislation to remove statues of Confederates passed 301-113 earlier this week with 72 Republicans and Rep. Justin Amash, L-Mich., voting in favor of it.”

It seems to me that the history of the democrats is much more egregious than the issue of these confederate statues in the capitol building.

aban 15

Of course, there’ll be no mention of this on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, The Washington Post, or The New York Times.

Sometimes, propaganda by omission is the only way they can go.

What “cancel culture” group should really “cancel” themselves?

According to Edmund DeMarche of Fox News, “Two professors from Princeton University co-authored a column that took apart the country’s current ‘cancel culture’ that they consider to be based on ‘twisted logic,’ but they said if the trend continues – to be fair – the movement should consider relegating the Democratic Party to ‘the dustbin of history.’”

The democrats and “twisted logic?”

Reeeeally?

acancel 20

acancel 9

“The movement” meaning the radical, socialist, Marxist, left wing of the democrat party, which is expanding daily within the party.

acancel 8

“Sergiu Klainerman, a mathematics professor, and John Londregan, a professor of politics and international affairs, co-authored the piece titled, ‘A Modest Proposal for a Name Change,’ which appeared on the National Review’s website.”

Ha!

“A modest proposal.”

Talk about writing an article with your tail between your legs!

I just can’t wait to hear these potential name proposals.

Whatever they come up with, you can bet it will be stupid and disingenuous.  They just can’t help themselves.

“They point out that there is a clear movement afoot in the country that aims to erase the ‘symbols and exemplars of American society’ that have suddenly become the targets of an ‘unprecedented iconoclastic purge.’”

This isn’t really news, fellas.

“The column mentioned the obvious targets: Civil War generals, slave owners, but they also point out that the movement goes much further. Universities across the U.S., for example, are quickly changing the names on school buildings to keep up with the trend. They pointed out that their own university changed the name of its Woodrow Wilson School.”

“Christopher L. Eisgruber, the school’s president, wrote in a letter last month that the school’s board of trustees ‘concludes that Wilson’s racist views and policies makes him an inappropriate namesake for the School of Public and International Affairs.’”

They don’t identify Wilson as a democrat, and you won’t easily discover that he was a democrat either.

But if he was a republican, he would be quickly identified as “Republican President, Woodrow Wilson.”

Just sayin’.

“Those in favor of removing statues and renaming school buildings insist that they have no interest in erasing the country’s history. They say that in order for the country to move forward to more racial equality these symbols need to be removed because they create additional hurdles on that path.”

That, of course, is a lie.

“But critics have asked just how far the cancel culture will go?”

Oh, that’s an easy one!

The fascist cancel culture will go as far as America lets them.

“Klainerman and Londregan wrote, ‘Shall we also change the names of months? We might start with July, which honors Julius Caesar, who by common standards committed genocide against the Gauls, and August, named after the man who put the last nail in the coffin of the Roman Republic and declared himself emperor — both were also slave owners themselves as well as leaders of vast slave empires.’”

I find these comparisons kind of lame actually.  This is not American history, but rather world history.

“The two then looked at the history of the Democrat Party that up to the 1960’s ‘was the party of slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, the Ku Klux Klan, lynching, poll taxes, and literacy tests for voting.’”

What you talkin’ ‘bout, Klainerman and Londregan?!

Now there’s some American history!

But the American history the democrat party never admits to.

These historical nuggets have been relegated to the dirty little secrets category, thanks to a complicit education system and a complicit media.

“They listed other offenses that Democrats committed in the previous decades– including President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s treatment of Japanese-Americans during WWII– and noted that the party has ‘been able to redefine itself over the past half-century as the champion of minorities.’”

The keywords being “redefined itself.”

The democrats have become very good at changing history to benefit themselves.

“But they concluded that the party’s ‘divide-and-conquer approach concerning race, ethnicity, sex, and sexual preferences has advanced their political ambitions to the detriment of our unifying motto E pluribus Unum.’”

Amen…, and you can say that again.

Are these guys really professors at Princeton University?

If they are…, I would say not for long.

The people suggesting the “cancel culture” “cancel” itself will probably be “cancelled” themselves.

The New York Times is liberal? 

Yessiree, Bob!

The New York Times is as liberal as the day is long…, and then some.

But it’s not just that.

The real offense of The New York Times is that they’re intentionally deceitful, intentionally disingenuous, and intentionally propagandistic.

Those are their real “crimes.”

abari 4

Being just a “good old liberal” these days is now a position not to be tolerated by the radical left.

If you’re not a self-proclaimed, full-fledged. socialist/communist/fascist, you better stand back and stand down.

Oliver Darcy of CNN Business writes, “Controversial opinion writer Bari Weiss resigns from The New York Times, blasting paper for ‘illiberal environment.’”

abari 3

First of all, wouldn’t a “controversial” opinion writer be a good thing?

That is, unless they’re only tolerated as long as their opinion matches the opinion dictated by the New York Times.

“New York (CNN) Bari Weiss, a controversial opinion writer for The New York Times, resigned from the newspaper on Monday, blasting the institution on her way out in a scathing letter explaining why she chose to leave her job.”

abari 1

“In the resignation letter Weiss posted online Tuesday, the self-described ‘politically homeless’ writer criticized The Times for fostering what she called an ‘illiberal environment’ that she said was ‘especially heartbreaking.’”

FL: Bari Weiss in Conversation with Alana Newhouse during the Mi

‘“Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times,’ Weiss wrote. ‘But Twitter has become its ultimate editor.’”

The whole process was good for Bari, however, until the process swept over her, and swept by her, and is now proceeding to bite her in her own backside.

“Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions,’ Weiss added.”

Bite your tongue, you heretical sea hag!

The last thing the radical left needs is people drawing their own conclusions!

“News of Weiss’ departure was first reported by ‘Vice’ and confirmed by The Times.  Kathleen Kingsbury, The Times’ acting editorial page editor, thanked Weiss in a statement for her ‘many contributions.’”

Her biggest and best contribution being her latest decision to get out of the way of their Marxist propaganda mission.

‘“I’m personally committed to ensuring that The Times continues to publish voices, experiences and viewpoints from across the political spectrum in the Opinion report,’ Kingsbury said.”

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

“Weiss generated controversy for her criticism of aspects of progressive culture, particularly with regards to free speech.”

We mustn’t have any of that!  Free speech, that is!

“Last week, she was one of the dozens of writers who signed an open letter published in Harper’s Magazine that spoke out against so-called cancel culture.”

How dare she!

“Weiss faced criticism in June when the newspaper faced backlash over the publication of Republican Sen. Tom Cotton’s op-ed, which argued for sending in military troops to U.S. cities to quash unrest that had broken out in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd.  In a series of tweets, Weiss tweeted that there was a ‘civil war’ that has been ‘raging’ inside The Times between the ‘wokes’ and older ‘liberals.’ The tweets drew public backlash from some of Weiss’ own colleagues.”

“Weiss said in her resignation letter that she was subject to ‘constant bullying’ by her colleagues at The Times who disagreed with her views. She wrote that colleagues have called her a Nazi and racist and that she was ‘demeaned on company-wide Slack channels.’”

abari 11

“Slack” software is a collaboration hub that can replace email to help you and your team work together seamlessly. It’s designed to support the way people naturally work together, so you can collaborate with people online as efficiently as you do face-to-face.  A “Slack” workspace is made up of channels, where team members can communicate and work together.

‘“There, some coworkers insisted I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name,’ Weiss wrote. ‘Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action.  They never are.’”

abari 10

Is it just me?

Doesn’t anyone else see the fascist nature of these people?

It can’t be just me, right?

You do see it too, don’t you?

“Eileen Murphy, a spokesperson for The Times, did not respond to the specifics of Weiss’ resignation letter.”

Of course not.

“But Murphy said, ‘We’re committed to fostering an environment of honest, searching and empathetic dialogue between colleagues, one where mutual respect is required of all.’”

Nice statement, Eileen.  Too bad it isn’t true.

Brian Flood of Fox News adds, ‘“What this journalist has done is not just to indict, but convict The New York Times of outright censorship,’ Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell told Fox News. ‘If it doesn’t send shockwaves through the world of journalism, it’s because the world of journalism no longer has ethics.”’

BINGO!

“Weiss published the resignation letter she sent to Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger on her personal website, saying, ‘Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.’”

And you not even a true centrist, Ms. Weiss. You may be a centrist, in a liberal sense, but not a true centrist.

A true “centrist,” these days, is defined as a person who isn’t smart enough to stand up for America, or just too lazy to help destroy her.

“DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that Weiss’ letter ‘provides yet another window to the mindset of journalistic ideology and advocacy’ at The Times.”

“While some were shocked by Weiss’ scathing letter, Cornell Law School professor and media critic William A. Jacobson feels anyone paying attention to ‘the Gray Lady’ [The New York Times] should have known the paper has a lefty agenda.”

“The Gray Lady” has a pimp these days…, and she’s a hot mess.

‘“Liberalism at the NY Times is illiberal and intolerant.  Water also is wet. Bari Weiss confirms what conservatives already knew, but liberals like Weiss previously refused to see,’ Jacobson told Fox News. ‘The vicious social justice warfare culture has moved from campus to newsrooms, and there is no place for old-fashioned liberals like Weiss.’”

Hmmm.  Sucks to be an “old fashioned liberal” these days, I guess.

Just to put The Times’ liberalism into perspective, The New York Times has not endorsed a republican for president since 1956!

That’s not once in the last 64 years!

That’s not once in the last 16 presidential elections!

That last endorsement in 1956 was for the incumbent, then President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

That includes endorsing Walter Mondale over President Ronald Reagan in 1984.  An election that Ronald Reagan won with 58.8% of the popular vote, while winning 49 of the 50 states, the only holdout being Mondale’s home state of Minnesota, and the District of Columbia, of course.
