Our crime problem starts with criminals.

Yes…, our crime problem starts with criminals, and the democrats have chosen to support the criminals over innocent law abiding citizens.  

Howard Kurtz of Fox News reports that, “Biden moves on guns as surging crime has Democrats on the defensive.”

Not quite, Howard.  I’m sure the democrats don’t feel their “on the defensive” at all.  As a matter of fact, things are going nicely according to plan as far as they’re concerned.

What we’re seeing, regarding homicides, shootings, and other crimes, is A DIRECT RESULT OF DEMOCRAT POLICIES regarding the elimination of bail requirements, letting violent criminals back out into the community, district attorneys choosing not to prosecute violent criminals or any criminals for that matter, the defunding of police, and the limiting of police response options and general support.  

Kurtz continues, “As the carnage continues, the rise in urban crime is ‘staggering’ and ‘sobering.’”

“Carnage” is a good choice of words!

The truth is you’d be much, much, much safer opting to do a tour of duty in Afghanistan right now, as opposed to spending some time in Chicago!

In fact, this could apply to a long list of democrat run American cities.”

The democrats like to say “this isn’t a red or a blue issue,” but, I’m sorry…, this most definitely a blue (democrat) created problem that they don’t want to address.  

“That’s not some police commissioner or Republican lawmaker decrying the surge in violence. It’s President Biden’s deputy attorney general, Lisa Monaco.”

I’m sorry, Lisa, but it appears you’re just not cut-out for this job!

You may want to start looking for a new line of work.

Kurtz continues by saying, “The spike in homicides and other major crimes is becoming a political albatross for the Democrats, who run nearly all these major cities. And that’s why Biden gave a crime speech Wednesday when he’d rather be focusing on vaccines or infrastructure or just about anything else.”

Actually, he’d rather be having some warm milk and cookies, before getting ready to go “nite-nite,” but I digress.

“Unfortunately for the president, and urban America, he has few tools at his disposal, which is why he’s concentrating mainly on guns, despite his failure to get any legislative traction on that subject or police reform. The Justice Department is creating several strike forces to go after illegal gun trafficking in the largest cities.”

No, Howard…, the reason he’s “concentrating mainly on guns” is because that’s what the progressives, otherwise known as anti-Americans, want to concentrate on.  They want to concentrate on removing guns from the hands of decent, law abiding people, by trying to create all of these new restrictive gun laws.

Just a little reminder here…, CRIMINALS DON’T OBEY LAWS!

Shooting someone, killing someone, armed robbery, etc, are already against the law!  Adding another restrictive law will only effect people who are already obeying the law and not the criminals.

Oh…, and additionally, a law is only as effective as the resulting punishment for breaking it.

Again, a law is only as effective as the resulting punishment for breaking it.

If you really want to stop gun crime, all you have to do is establish a policy where if you commit a crime with a gun, you get a mandatory 20 year sentence…, minimum.  

Most of the people committing gun crimes have long rap sheets and a history of breaking the law. 

The real problem is democrats are willing to accept the costs these criminals impose on our communities as a trade-off for an excuse to take guns out of the hands of law abiding people, which will eventually allow them to rule with impunity over the American people.  

They’re, the democrat Nazis are, jealous of China’s ability to dictate everything to their people, with no fear of repercussions.  

“Biden’s workmanlike speech mostly repeated talking points on gun control (the sellers are ‘merchants of death,’ and we need a ‘ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines’).”

Is that what that was, “workmanlike?”

Struggling to coherently read someone else’s words from a teleprompter, while looking and sounding like you missed your nap, is far from “workmanlike,” and much closer to embarrassing and uninspired.

“Progressives” are really “Anti-America” “Americans!”

When you hear the term “progressive” in the future, just remember to think “anti-American,” because that’s really what they are.

“Progressive” equals anti-America.

“Progressive” equals anti-America.

Again, “Progressive” equals anti-America.  

It’s important to truthfully define these people for what they actually represent, and not allow them to define themselves in a more positive propagandistic way.

The only thing they are “progressive” about is making progress towards destroying America.

Please don’t forget that.

Joel Klotkin, for Newsweek (Weak News), says, “A Middle Class rebellion against Progressives is gaining steam.”

This isn’t exactly true, Joel. The “rebellion against progressives” has been here all along…, it’s just that you and your ilk are finally recognizing it.., mostly because you have no choice.  

Klotkin continues, “A specter is haunting America, a great revolt that threatens to dwarf the noxious rebellion led by Trump.”

Ha!  Ya…, the awful, “noxious rebellion,” in your opinion, against those politicians and deep state bureaucrats who choose to put America last instead of America first.

How dare they…, and how dare President Trump?!

“The echoes of another potentially larger pushback can already be heard in progressive America. But it’s not towards socialism, as many suggest. It’s the opposite: a new middle-class rebellion against the excesses of the Left.”

More accurately, Mr. Klotkin, it’s a rebellion against democrat Nazism and neo-democrat Marxism. 

“This new middle-class rebellion isn’t rejecting everything that progressives stand for [I would beg to differ, Mr. Klotkin!], but the ‘current focus on systemic racism,’ coupled with a newfound and heavily enforced cultural conformism and the obsessive focus on a never-ending litany of impending ‘climate emergences’ are less likely to pass muster with most of the middle class, no matter how popular they are with the media, academics, and others in the progressive corner.”

Translation: The middle Class (patriots that still possess common sense) are not falling for your propagandistic BS, no matter how adamant the democrat Nazis are about it. 

“And this new middle-class rebellion is being bolstered by a wide-ranging intellectual rebellion by traditional liberals against the Left’s dogmatism and intolerance. Indeed, what we’re about to see has the potential to reprise the great shift among old liberals that had them embracing Reagan in reaction to the Left’s excesses of that generation.”

Translation: Progressives are getting so obnoxious that even the average liberal is questioning their intentions.

“In a way, this should not be surprising. After all, the progressive base is limited: According to a survey conducted by the non-partisan group ‘More in Common,’ ‘progressives’ constitute barely eight percent of the electorate.”

“Progressives constitute barely eight percent of the electorate!” 

“The report also found that fully 80 percent of all Americans believe that “political correctness is a problem,” including large majorities of millennials and racial minorities.”

“Party line journalists [democrat Nazi propaganda ministers] may see President Biden as the new champion of the middle class [Excuse me, but I just threw up in my mouth!], but every time he adopts central tenets of the new Left, he undermines his pitch. And this happens not infrequently: The Biden Administration has adopted elements of the ‘anti-racist’ agenda, for example, by explicitly favoring Black farmers for subsidies, rather than focusing on all farmers in need. Race issues may be popular on college campuses and in the human relations departments of giant corporations like Lockheed and Amazon, but a recent Yale study found that language based on inclusivity around class was far more popular than one focused largely on race, even with progressive voters.”

Get it?  It’s opposite day!

Being racist is being anti-racist, and tolerance is demonstrated by being intolerant.

And you definitely don’t want to be “undermining your (BS) pitch,” illegitimate Joe!”

“This is not the message coming out of the Biden administration, which has put a premium on diversity hiring and ‘equity, ’despite the fact that racial quotas, in hiring or in college admissions, are unpopular with three out of four Americans, including African-Americans and Hispanics; 65% of Hispanics, 62% of black Americans and 58% of Asians oppose affirmative action in college admissions.”

When you can control the vote, eight percent of the people can control the other ninety-two percent…, at least for a while.

“Biden is similarly losing the middle class on immigration. Already many Latinos, particularly in Texas and Arizona, fear the loss of border control that accompanied the shift from Trump to Biden administrations. The crisis at the border has the potential to overwhelm the economies, health and welfare systems in heavily Hispanic border communities, which is sparking alarm among border state Democrats.”

“None of this is to suggest that minorities will vote for Republicans en masse in the near future, particularly if the party cannot transcend its embarrassing Trump worship. But the growing chasm between what people want and what Biden is offering could prove a potentially immense challenge that could undermine future Democratic gains.”

Actually, Joel, Hispanics, along the southern border in particular, came out in record numbers in support of President Trump. 

Just sayin’.

“Major pushback on how the progressive Left sees American history is also brewing.”

“Americans by and large remain patriotic, including the poor and working class.”

Those bastards!!!

“This patriotism stands in stark contrast to the prevailing view among progressives, which casts America as the intrinsically and irredeemably evil spawn of slaveholders and racists.”

Except the enlightened eight percent, course.

And just in case you forgot, or never knew, Joel, the democrats were the slaveholders and racists, and the republicans were the ones who fought to free the slaves and treat them like human beings.

But, like I said, it seems to be opposites day.

It would seem that cancel culture has a time limitation where democrats are concerned.   

“Hollywood, which used to promote the virtues of the Republic and the heroic struggles of diverse Americans. Now, dominated by people scared to contravene woke progressives, the big media companies have been pushing far Left plotlines and characters—and they have lost markets as a result. The devolution of the once glamorous Academy Awards into a minor, sparsely watched proto-spectacle reflects how much Hollywood’s hold is fading.”

“Of course, it’s not just Hollywood. Much more consequential—and potentially more disastrous for the Left—has been the attempted takeover of public education, and, with the support of the Biden Administration, attempts to inject critical race theory into secondary school curricula [and K-12 curricula as well]. This has created a mounting pushback in school districts across the nation, many of them voting to ban critical race theory altogether.”

Who are these people, and why are they dead set on dividing and conquering the American people?

Well, they lie in order to get elected, and then they ram their divisive agendas through.

It’s all very premeditated and destructive.

Remember…, their intentions are to put an end to our freedoms and gain control.

Why these peon Nazis believe they’ll have a seat at the table is beyond me.  

“Democrats who wish to remain in power will need to address critical challenges like a steady rise in urban crime and massive homelessness; citing systemic racism won’t clean the streets of New York, San Francisco and central Los Angeles from drug addicts, the mentally ill and the destitute. A failure to solve these problems will impact investment; Walgreens, reeling from thefts and disorder at its San Francisco stores, just announced its intention close 17 shops in the next five years.”

How exactly are democrats going to solve, or address, these problems their own policies have created, especially when they actually have no interest in solving anything?!!!

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.”

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.
