UPDATED (7/25): Republicans Or Democrats: Who’s More Tiresomely PC?

Conservatism, Democrats, Free Speech, Left-Liberalism, libertarianism, Logic, Political Correctness, Republicans

Conservatives habitually engage in this asinine, “No, Democrats are the sexist and racist party blah, blah; we’re the good party, party of Lincoln.” “No, liberals project onto us vices they’re guilty of and we’re free of; they do what they say we do.”

Such group thinkers all.

Any libertarian worth his salt hates this thought-crime policing on both sides. Who cares who’s sexist? Who cares if you have impolitic and impolite thoughts? The more improper thinking is expressed out loud; the more we break down barriers to politically risque thinking erected by both parties. (For instance, what I said in “THE WAR ON TRUMP: The Big Picture for Conservatives, Libertarians & Liberals” was verboten in conservative circles.)

Here Mike Cernovich rejoices, via a retweet, in the GOP nominating members of so-called marginalized identity groups. If you’re all about merit and individualism, not identity, why the hell do you care? Why partake in this idiotic, Democratic dance?

There’s no difference in modus operandi between the parties. Both window dress and virtue signal and accuse each other of not doing these enough.

Another incident sees Cernovich scold the awful Ana Navarro (we have a dossier on her: http://barelyablog.com/?s=Ana+Navarro) for being nasty about Jared Kushner. Why? Navarro is right. Why is Cernovich loving on Kushner?

Kushner looks and sound like a boy in transition.

From my, “What Ivanka Wants, Ivanka Gets”:

The man’s a mouse. … The poor man looks low T—like he might one day go the way of Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner. (I love LGBTQ, so long as they come in peace.)

Not Jared’s fault. However, Jared’s bloody bad for the country, as well. But conservatives, being part of one tribe, must defend this nincompoop, rather than rejoice that the boring Ana Navarro is being bad, breaking with political propriety. Next, cons will force Navarro to apologize to the transgender Jared.

UPDATE (7/25): THREAD ON FACEBOOK.

Both these good people (Democrats like Gabbard and Webb) are in my book as must cabinet picks for Trump. The days that I imagined prez had the good sense to follow his promise and ignore the Manhattan La Familia are GONE.

UPDATED: Political Tribes & The Donald Trump Jr. Contretemps

Conservatism, Democrats, Donald Trump, Individualism Vs. Collectivism, Republicans, Russia

I checked out social media before dipping the proverbial toe in the water, this morning. The Right—libertarian, conservative, Republican—is behind Trump, no matter. The Left is against him, no matter what. Tribalists all.

The reaction to Donald Trump Jr. contretemps epitomizes tribalism, if you ask me; but if you’re a tribalist, you won’t ask me.

The silver lining? Maybe we’ll finally be rid of Jared Kushner. Wife Ivanka follows him back to New York, in short order.

Fin.

AND FAT CHANCE.

The Story is Here. If you’re a member of Tribe I, you think it’s a non-story. If you’re a member of Tribe II; you’re into it. It’s your smoking gun.

UPDATE: But there is a truth here, beyond the two tribes’ positions. And the “What about when the Democrats did this or that” won’t cut it as an argument.

Republicans Let The Left Get Away With Incitement To Murder

BAB's A List, Democrats, Donald Trump, Left-Liberalism, Republicans, Russia

By Dr. Boyd D. Cathey

Yesterday’s attempted mass murder of a dozen Republican congressmen practicing for the annual congressional charity baseball game continues to hold the headlines … yet, on the Mainstream Media [MSM] the narrative continues to be that the deceased assassin, James Hodgkinson, was just an “loner,” a “sick” individual, unrepresentative of “mainstream” Democratic views. No, we are told, he was isolated, acting by himself, he had “snapped.” And from both Democrat and Republican leaders we then are counseled to “come together” and “reject hate,” and “lower the volume.”

Some pundits of the MSM go further, and actually blame what happened on Donald Trump—you see, it was he who initially unleashed this “climate of hate” by his “racism,” his “sexism and homophobia,” and his “anti-immigrant rhetoric.”

Got that?

Thus, the pundits in the media and the Democrat leaders (and far too many Republicans) attempt to erect an equivalency between the “hateful” statements of the president, on the one hand, and what they term as the “irrational but understandable reaction” by a scandalized and isolated individual, on the other.
This narrative is the very definition of standing truth on its head, of calling what is white, black; and what is black, white. Or, to use a more historical descriptor, it is an example of “the Big Lie.”

Three days before the assassination attempt in Alexandria, a columnist for The Huffington Post, Jason Fuller, published an essay at that venue. Now, The HuffPost is what we would call “mainstream Left.” It conveys views that are quite common among leading Democratic politicians; its writers have appeared on CNN, MSNBC, and at other sites. In other words, in our current politics, it passes for establishment, on the Left.

I actually receive its emailings most every day. But I had not read Fuller’s piece, published June 11, until a friend and former associate (who holds a doctorate and is a fine writer) sent it to me yesterday. Actually, after the attempted assassination, the essay was taken down by The HuffPost … and, after you read it (below), I think you will understand why.

Jason Fuller is representative of thousands, perhaps millions, of anti-Trump “resistance” people. That is why what he wrote on June 11 is so extremely threatening … and disgusting. He—and Hodgkinson—are not isolated, they are, as I have written, identical in their thinking, tips of an iceberg cultivated and encouraged and abetted by those same political leaders and that same media which shed tears—momentarily—yesterday for the attempt to murder congressional Republicans, but who, when it comes down to it, don’t retract or apologize for ANYTHING they have said, don’t halt any of the vicious and virulent venom they have unleashed, don’t retract any of the totally “fake news” they have spread about like horse manure, don’t apologize for any of the lies and deceptions that they have engaged in.

Fuller spins a web of charges against not just President Trump, but everyone in his administration, and also various members of Congress. They have, according to his febrile and utterly corrupted brain, all committed “treason,” and thus they must be tried, convicted, and executed. For Fuller there is no doubt about the “Russian collusion” narrative, no matter what James Comey admitted or what all the other Intel chiefs have testified to. It’s a fact because he wants it to be a fact, and because for the past seven months the MSM and leading Democrats have opened a Pandora’s Box of reckless insinuations and violent attacks, and created an immense mythic, politically poisonous narrative.

And notice, although he talks about a “trial,” it is only a “show trial,” because Fuller, like millions of other brainwashed Americans, has already convicted Trump, Pence, Bannon, Priebus, Speaker Ryan, Senator McConnell, and any other public figure who in any way supports the president, of treason. They all must be killed … that is, after a perfunctory “show trial.” Shades of the old Soviet days and their “show trials.”

Now, I would bet you that dormant oil well in my back yard that if you asked Jason Fuller his opinion, generally, of the death penalty, like almost all leftists, he would stoutly oppose it and react with horror and call it “inhuman” and “abusive of human rights.” But in this case, in the case of Trump and the entire leadership of the GOP, well, he would make a bloodthirsty exception; and from the tenor of his column it is very evident that he would love to be there when such executions occur and probably like to throw the switch himself. In fact, it is apparent that he eagerly lusts after the blood of those figures whom he firmly believes have threatened the future of the planet by challenging climate change and have, according to the Leftist narrative, stolen the 2016 election, aided and abetted by that evil genius Vladimir Putin (who obviously crept into thousands of polling places and miraculously changed vote totals, all with Donald Trump’s connivance!).

What is both utterly scandalous and extremely disturbing about this published piece on a national “mainstream” leftist webzine is that it is NOT unique; if you read far enough and scratch below the surface, it is fairly common to find similar items and commentary. And it is those same rabid epigones of the Deep State—the MSM (CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, etc.), the Democrats (like Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, etc.), Hollywood, academia—who have unleashed this venom and hatred. It is they who have let out the genie of vitriolic language and unhinged hatred, of massive acts of “resistance,” of violence on campuses and in the street. They are the ones who have been screaming blood-curdling screams and imprecations and threats … and, as was to be expected, their millions of followers, cocooned in that parallel universe constructed on myth, lies, and deception, have begun to act upon the premises handed out to them by that leadership.

So, those brief tears and that wailing by Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders don’t cut it. The attempt of the MSM urging “that we all come together,” or to blame President Trump and talk radio, are ludicrous, an attempt to divert attention from their own direct responsibility and guilt. Yes, it was James Hodgkinson’s gun that was pointed at those Republicans, but it was, in fact, a gun created and filled with ammunition provided by a Rachel Maddow and a Chris Matthews on MSNBC, any of the pundits at CNN and the MSM, and of Waters, Pelosi and others, so self-righteously ensconced in Congress. It is they who must bear ultimate responsibility, and, if not so judged here and now, must face the eternal judgment of history and of God.

What we are witnessing is just one emanation of the multifaceted response of the Deep State and its warped minions to what happened last November. I have said before, and I repeat it again, those forces will use any tactic, employ any strategy, and do anything to recover what they lost and to maintain their Progressivist trajectory. What James Hodgkinson attempted and Jason Fuller gruesomely envisioned are but the natural results of the age old black-hearted Deep State revolution which luxuriates in evil and rebellion against both God and nature. It must be opposed.

UPDATE III (6/26): Republicans STILL Stupidly Stoic After Attempted Murder By Left

Conservatism, Democrats, Donald Trump, GUNS, Morality

Congressmen and their staff were shot at “as they were practicing for tomorrow’s annual charity baseball game. Congressman Steve Scalise, a member of House leadership, was shot and badly wounded.” Which prompted President Trump to go into Democrat-appeasing moral relativism mode. Hear Trump:

We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country.
We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good.
Please take a moment today to cherish those you love, and always remember those who serve and keep us safe. God bless them all, God bless you, and God Bless America.

Or was this Ivanka the president was channeling? Moral clarity was needed. But any moral clarity displayed by the president during the campaign has evaporated, in favor of obsequious pandering. Not to mention breaking of promises: Libertarian Gabb Sean says that “Ever since Trumps was elected, it’s been a matter of what promises he’ll break this week.”

All in all, Democrats are running rings round Trump. If he doesn’t act, Democrats will take the House and Trump will be impeached.

On TV, Conservatives ponderously warned about the perils of “political violence,” all as their ranks are shot at and their spokespersons prevented from speaking. An alt-leftist tries to kill Republicans and this signals to the “stupid party” (M. Stanton Evans’ coinage for Republicans) that it’s time to suck-up to the “evil party” (Democrats). As we speak, the Antifa sick fucks have even stabbed a police horse.

After the Alexandria shooting, politicians consider armed security for THEMSELVES, but not a Wall or a Muslim moratorium for The People.

Bernie Sanders, Huffington Post and other alt-leftist outfits and detritus deny that violence is in their blood; that their brethren encouraged violence. Just the other day did Bernie Sanders roar in his sub-intelligent, foreboding manner that Christian doctrine has to be made to accept that the faithful can be saved through Mohammad, Jehovah, Buddha, etc. Force Christianity to be more inclusive?

Did you know that “more than 12,000 tweets have called for Trump’s assassination since the inauguration”?

The operative word in the Left’s worldview is “force.”

UPDATE I (6/17/017):

Stupid and evil combine forces; Republicans are desperate to retain membership in the DC “smart” set.

Republicans reach out to Democrats in unity after their pals were almost killed. When’s the Republican apology tour?

UPDATE II (6/19/017): Republicans continue to collaborate in the “Problem Solvers Caucus,” following the ATTEMPTED MURDER OF REPUBLICANS, last weeks. Well of course.

What stupid, stupid losers.

Fear not, founders Republican Tom Reed (NY-23) and Democrat Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). You’ll be invited to all the good parties; you’ll get book deals (to write sub-intelligent drivel about so-called non-parhttps://twitter.com/IlanaMercer/status/878471033409359872tisanship); and you’ll be interviewed by press popinjays.
