From left to right , Bleach Bimbo Barbie , Gina “Obama allowed Ebola into America because he hates white people” Loudon , resident liberal Danielle McGlaughlin , and Republican party propagandist , Sean Hannity.

Sean Hannity’s panel on racism , which aired on Fox News September 14th , was laughable , ridiculous , and embarrassing. But since it was broadcast on the Fox News channel , it’s not surprising that any of the so-called experts were not embarrassed by any of the ridiculous things they said , and that includes Sean Hannity.   

The panel consisted of two women who have bigoted and racist views , so I have no problem with calling them racist. One is Tomi Lahren , and the other is Dr. Gina Loudon , who obviously received her degree form a box of Cracker Jacks. The third was Danielle McGlauglin , a so-called liberal.

Everyone is familiar with Tomi Lahren , the loud mouth conservative commentator who seethes with righteous indignation whenever minorities exercise their first amendment rights. She’s called Black Lives Matter the new KKK and a racist hate group for having the audacity to tell police to stop killing unarmed black people. Maybe not so familiar to some people is Gina Loudon , a quack psychologist , and a regular contributor to several of the worst conservative so-called news sites on the internet , including the worst of the worst , Joseph Farah’s racist , conspiracy filled website World Nut Daily , where many of her ridiculous articles can be found. She once diagnosed Obama as being a psychopath for having the audacity to play golf and take vacations , but has yet to make a similar observation for the current president. That she will never do , since Trump plays for team Republican , and in her eyes can do no wrong. 

Hannity started the discussion by whining that Democrats and liberals were unfairly calling Trump and conservatives racists. “The most amazing thing , and I can’t take it anymore , Danielle. I don’t like it that conservatives , that the president – this is a lie , and this is a narrative that happens every two and every four years. Republicans and conservatives , the president are racist , sexist , misogynistic. You know what , stop lying about who we are! 

Tomi , Dr. , we are not racist , nor is the president , nor are the people around him. I’m not saying for the woman ( Jemelle Hill ) to be fired , I’m saying that the left does this every election cycle , and I’ve never heard you say to them , knock it off.” 

McGlaughlin ( the supposed liberal ) : ““I’ll say it now. Knock it off. It’s not fair to characterize the president that way. He gave the folks a little bit of red meat with his both sides comment , which in all fairness he did walk back.”

He did finally condemn white supremacists , but the very next day , he once again  blamed both sides for the violence in Charlottesville , so it really wasn’t much of a walk back. The right spent the entire eight years of Obama’s presidency obsessed with proving  he was racist. Glenn Beck absurdly claimed that he hated white people after Obama’s statement that the Cambridge police officer that arrested Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates had “acted stupidly in arresting someone in their own home.” He was accused of being Americas first racist president , despite the fact that there were other presidents that actually were racist , and was accused of racial division  worse than it had been in fifty years , as if the Jim Crow era when black people were second class citizens , was somehow not as divided. He was accused of racism for his comments on the death of Trayvon Martin , when he said that Martin could have been his own son , and that he could have been Martin some years before. The right racially attacked him for eight years on everything from the church he attended , healthcare reform , his connection to ACORN as a community organizer , his birth certificate ,  Black Lives Matter , to taking vacations and playing golf.  But , he was the real racist because he spoke about race , not those who frequently played the race card , conservatives like Loudon and Hannity.

So , if Obama was guilty of radicalism , and racism for associating with reverend Wright and groups like ACORN , then it definitely is fair to  characterize Trump as being  sympathetic to white nationalist ideology , since he couldn’t even denounce David Duke during his 2016 presidential campaign ,  his ridiculous defense of civil war statues being removed , his defense of white nationalists in Charlottesville Virginia , the fact that he was sued by the federal government in the early seventies for housing discrimination , his calling for the death penalty for the Central Park Five even after they were vindicated , and not to mention , his blatant birtherism.    

Hannity : “Tomi , Dr. it’s conservatives when they say anything that’s viewed over the line , oh  , fire them , boycott them.”

Lahren : “Well , it’s happened before at ESPN with Curt Shilling , because of a post he made on Facebook ; it was not on the channel. But the repercussion was a little more strict than the talking to they gave to the other hosts. Now I can’t help there’s a double standard , maybe ESPN values diversity but not diversity of opinion. That sounds more correct to me.”

Conservatives have a blind spot when it comes to double standards. They are incapable of detecting their own hypocrisy.  Tomi Lahren loves to call liberals sanctimonious hypocrites , but Lahren is without doubt the biggest hypocrite on the planet. She will always defend a Republican when they say something outrageous , but attack and endlessly condemn anyone on the left who says something she doesn’t agree with. Her attacks on Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players are perfect examples of her blatant hypocrisy. For someone who claims to be a champion of free speech  , she screams a lot about liberal snowflakes wanting to shut down conservative voices , but when someone says something that triggers her , she will be the first to call for a boycott , or for that person to be fired. Her delicate  feelings were recently triggered on twitter when actor Michael McKean tweeted that the people shot in a Texas church “had the prayers shot right out of them.” Ryan Savaadra , a conservative snowflake who writes for the reactionary right-wing website Daily Wire , attempted to get him fired by contacting AMC , and Tomi Lahren re tweeted his ( Savaadra’s ) tweet. So , if there is anyone who doesn’t value a difference of opinion , it’s Tomi Lahren. This is a person who  wants anyone who doesn’t worship the flag , to leave America. That’s how much of a triggered snowflake she is. That sounds more correct to me. 

Hannity continues : “Dr. Gina , isn’t there something wrong when you’re so willing to lie about other people?”

Loudon : “There’s definitely something wrong with someone going around name calling instead of acting professional.”

This response coming from a conservative like Loudon , almost breaks the projection meter. As a partisan hack , Loudon obviously doesn’t understand what  hypocrisy is. She believes only liberals and Democrats are hypocrites.  This response to Hannity’s question was not only predictable , but anyone who is familiar with her background would also find it laughable. Loudon has spent the last eight years acting very unprofessional , lying repeatedly and often resorting to name calling when it came to anything Obama or Democrats said and/or did. Like every Obama hater , she frequently attacked the ACA , claiming it to be socialized medicine , that it contained actual death panels , never once being honest enough to admit that the real death panels have always been the private health insurance companies. It was just another excuse to attack a Democratic president for political purposes. She believes every moderate Muslim is a secret terrorist waiting to get out. She literally called Obama a psychopath for having the audacity to vacation and play golf while president. But there is one thing that speaks volumes on Loudon’s state of mind :  like her fellow cronies at World Nut Daily , she believes Obama deliberately allowed Ebola into America because he hates it and wants to pay back white America for slavery and racism.

Hannity : “Dr , Gina , I think we conservatives are far more tolerant of free speech and thought , and don’t do boycotts or call for firings. What if something similar had been said during the Obama administration? What would the reaction have been?”

Again , they are totally unaware of their own projection. Something similar had been said when Obama was president. Many, many , many times. They called him a racist who hated white people , who hated police officers because he wouldn’t denounce a legitimate black civil rights group , they called him a socialist , a communist , a Muslim who hated America , who wanted to make it a caliphate with his Muslim Brotherhood buddies , a Nazi over health care reform. None of these people were fired or boycotted. 

Loudon : “There’s always an hypocrisy , Sean. And we’re used to it. But here’s the good news. You’ve watched the decay of the leftist media over the last eight to ten years as they spout their bigotry and to be so intolerant , and it’s left a very good place conservative media to fill those voids. I like to say , every time the leftist media spouts their mantra , another conservative gets their wings. And I believe there’s no exception to that.”

 This is a woman who writes for some of the worst news outlets on the internet , most of them the very definition of fake news , and conservative news pundits like Loudon , Hannity , and Lahren – who are not even journalists – often whine about mainstream media bias , don’t even realize they themselves are a part of the mainstream they so often complain about , and to suggest that they are more credible than their democratic counterparts , is absurdly laughable. What’s even more laughable is the claim that leftist media has been spouting bigotry and intolerance. The last eight years , it was right-wing media – Loudon , Hannity , and Lahren included – spouting their anti-Muslim , anti-gay , anti-immigrant , and anti-Black Lives Matter intolerance. I haven’t heard anyone on the so-called left spouting bigotry toward anyone. In the warped minds of people like Loudon , if you don’t allow them to be intolerant toward gays , Muslims , and immigrants , you are by definition oppressing them , being intolerant toward them. This is where the catch phrase “the intolerant left” originated from.

Hannity : “Tomi , the left isn’t really tolerant. I’ve seen horrible things about you , Dr. Loudon , myself on social media by these groups funded by Soros types of people.”

Just as Loudon , Lahren , and Hannity have written horrible things about people they don’t like , things they’ve written and said about Colin Kaepernick , Obama , and certain Democrats. But that’s OK. There is no accountability in right-wing media. They can say whatever they want about anyone. It’s only intolerance when so-called leftists criticize anyone on the right.

Lahren : “Of course , I’m someone who’s gone to bat for what I believe in , and I’ve felt the repercussions.” 

And what she believes is Black Lives Matter , which is a civil rights group attempting to call attention to police abuse in the black community , is a terrorist , racist hate group like the KKK , even though they haven’t killed anyone , lynched any white people , or burned any crosses on their lawns. She would rather smear a legitimate civil rights organization , than spend a few minutes visiting their website to see what their platform policy is. She’s not only dishonest , she’s lazy.
She believes moderate Muslims are all tomorrow’s terrorists , that Obama and Black Lives Matter were responsible for the five Dallas police officers that were shot and killed in 2016 during a BLM protest , and had accused Obama of having a friendly to jihadis mentality even as he was carrying out a war against ISIS. 

McGlaughlin : “I’m a free speech absolutist , like many conservatives , even though I’m not a conservative.”

Hannity : “Many of your fellow liberals are not. Nobody defends me on the left.” 

Many conservatives are not free speech absolutists. Hannity is not a free speech absolutist , nor is Tomi Lahren. They claim to be , but how many times have they demonstrated to be just the opposite? A principled free speech absolutist is someone who defends everyone’s right to speak , even if they don’t like or agree with what that person is saying. The ACLU are defenders of free speech. They defend the rights of all to speak freely. People like Sean Hannity and Tomi Lahren do not. All they have ever done is defend the right of their fellow conservatives , and attack liberals and Democrats. How many times has Lahren told Kaepernick and other NFL players to leave America because she doesn’t like what they are doing? The only thing she will defend is their right to shut up and not complain. And when has Hannity ever defended anyone on the left? Never. All he’s ever done is attack , lie , and smear progressives. He’s a partisan hack , a propagandist for the Republican party , and Tomi Lahren is his female counterpart. 

Hannity : “Alright , it looks like conservatives are the ones that are open-minded , the ones that believe in freedom.”

If conservatives like Hannity and Lahren are so open-minded , and believe so much in freedom  , why are they always the first to attack anyone who has a difference of opinion that contradicts their own talking points? For over a year they’ve attacked NFL athletes as un American , as enemies of freedom and liberty. Perhaps they are not so open minded , and do not believe in freedom so much unless it’s the freedom to dictate to others how they should behave and what they should believe.

Cliven Bundy Clone Whitesplains White And Black Privilege

I found this video while browsing on YouTube this morning , and I wanted to add some short commentary on the content of the video that no one in the comment section was willing to provide. That is , the truth of the message of this video. 

So , here we have this southern white man , a Cliven Bundy clone , stereotyping black people that’s all too typical of a closet racist who wants others to believe he’s not racist. Black people are lazy , they don’t work as hard as white people , they’re thugs , and they want everything handed to them. He starts out with how hard work , going to church , and minding his parents afforded him white privilege. He never mentioned the existence of actual Jim Crow laws , when black people were literally second class citizens , and that white people literally had class privilege , and still do to a certain extent today. He also mentions a black friend of his who told him (  probably made up ) that the destruction of the black family is the fault of the liberal left , without actually mentioning just how it’s their fault , and that black people who have to rely on any of the social safety nets just to survive  , are slaves to the Democratic plantation , and are worse off than they were under actual slavery. He never bothered to mentioned that Democrats way back when were conservatives ( in his mind the Democrats are still the party of the KKK – he obviously knows nothing about that thing called the southern strategy , and that there was a mass exodus from the Democratic party to the Republican party ). He never mentioned the economic factors that might be involved. Black people are just basically lazy , and the nanny state is encouraging them not to work. 

He then goes into a little rant against black youth , complaining about the music , the way they dress  , how violent they are , how they all loot and riot , how racist they are , how they worship the wrong heroes – Jesse Jackson , Al Sharpton , because  they’re the real racists – how black mothers are aborting their black babies who don’t realize that Planned Parenthood’s sole purpose is to kill black children because it’s founder Margret Sanger was a racist ( a ridiculous claim repeated all too often by people like this guy ). When he tells black mothers to stop aborting their children , he says , ‘You ought to read her story about you blacks.’ I doubt this clown has read anything about Margret Sanger except right wing propaganda. 

At the end of the video he gives ridiculous examples of how black youth  can obtain black privilege , by pulling up their pants , turning around their hats , stop rioting and looting ( which is really metaphor for don’t protest ) stop complaining , work hard ( another  reference how black people are lazy ) , take off the hoodies , and read the bible. Yes , that’s how black people can achieve black privilege. Ignore  systemic racism , ignore the fact that black men are being murdered in the streets by trigger happy police officers , who nine times out of ten , are not convicted. Just shut the fuck up , stop complaining , pull up your fucking pants , take off the fucking hoodies , stop killing each other and your children , get a fucking job , leave the liberal slave plantation of government welfare , and read the fucking bible. Then ye shall have black privilege. What bullshit.

This guy included every racial stereotype in his rant , except at the very end when he included poor ‘white trash’ ( just to let everyone know that he’s not really a racist ) who are also allowing themselves to be slaves to the liberal slave plantation. 

The most infuriating thing about this video , is the hypocrisy. This guy doesn’t think he’s racist. To people like him , it’s Black Lives Matter and those who complain about racism who are the racists.

TheBlaze: Watch: Fox host excoriates Dem staffer for ‘bringing us to dark ages’ with anti-Trump rhetoric

TheBlaze: Watch: Fox host excoriates Dem staffer for ‘bringing us to dark ages’ with anti-Trump rhetoric.

If there is anything I hate most about conservatives , it’s their hypocrisy. They spend much of their time attacking liberals over everything they themselves are guilty of. In this case , its violent rhetoric. When it comes to their own hypocrisy , they either deny it , or genuinely don’t see it.

The article above is from The Blaze , Glenn Beck’s online website  , which is just one of  many sources of conservative tabloid journalism masquerading a ‘real news.’ And it’s a perfect example of hypocrisy that Fox News commentators are blind to.

Trish Regan at Fox Business Network recently got her undies tangled into a knot over some anti-Trump rhetoric. She was upset that a Democratic senator allegedly said she hoped that Trump would be assassinated , and that some Democrats had said that the White House was full of white supremacists.

Which isn’t news to most people who pay attention to politics. But the folks at Fox News and their audience are clueless , even when presented with evidence. 

The divisive rhetoric coming from the Democrats , according to Regan , are bringing America back to the dark ages.     

“Liberals have a playbook ,” she said. This is the agenda they’re trying to advance. You guys are taking it too far here , just simply too far. We as a nation have come so far and you’re bringing us back into the dark ages with this kind of rhetoric.”

Liberals have a playbook.  It’s not too hard to catch her meaning here : they’re violent in both speech and actions. This is , of course , ridiculous. How many liberals have taken up guns and killed someone because of dangerous rhetoric? Not a whole lot. According to the SPLC most of the political violence has been carried out by far right anti-government groups like Sovereign Citizens , and other anti-American militia groups. But , of course , the corporate media has no interest in addressing this issue. To hear them tell it , the only violence in America we should be concerned about , is Islamic terrorism , and the so-called terrorism from  their newest boogeymen , Antifa , and Black Lives Matter. 

Ned Ryun , a former speech writer for George Bush , who was also a guest on the program , said that liberals need to stop playing identity politics , and need to disavow Antifa. This notion among conservatives that liberals as a whole support Antifa , is absurd. Many liberals have disavowed the violent tactics of Antifa. Some of You Tubes leading progressive voices , The Young Turks , and Kyle Kulinski , have condemned Antifa’s violent behavior on college campuses. On the other hand , I haven’t seen many conservatives in the media condemn the fringe right. Instead , since the election of Donald Trump , they’ve embraced victim hood , have denied systemic racism and have elevated the notion that white people are discriminated against more than minorities. 

Ryun continues : “Hate is hate , and violence is violence. They wear black , but they sure remind me of people who wore brown.” In other words , he’s not worried about actual Nazis , many of whom are members of racist anti-government militias and other groups that have actually killed American citizens over the decades , but also police officers. No , he and other conservatives are not worried about their violence , their hatred of their own government. They’re patriots because they’re conservatives. They’re more worried about anti-fascist protesters , and civil rights groups likes Black Lives Matter , which haven’t killed anyone. Where the fuck are their priorities?

Regan was also miffed that someone had the gall to refer to her president as a white supremacist. “Pablo , you see what your party is doing. They’re saying , ‘One less white supremacist in the White House.’ You’re telling me you’ve got a bunch of white supremacists in the White House?! That is what the DNC is saying.”

The double standard  here is  apparent to everyone but Trish Regan , Ned Ryun  and the Fox News audience. But , it’s Fox News , so it’s to be expected. It wasn’t that long ago , when not just Fox News , but much of the conservative media , and many in the GOP , were  calling Obama and his entire administration racist. Of course their evidence was ridiculous : he criticized a white police officer – ‘without knowing all the facts‘ – who arrested Harvard Law professor Henry Louis Gates for breaking into his own home. Conservatives lost their minds. Glenn Beck , who was at Fox News at the time , said he had a problem with white people , all based on one comment. Of course , they came up with even more absurd so-called evidence to prove he was a racist. He refused to side with George Zimmerman with the comment that Trayvon Martin could have been his son , and that he could have been Trayvon Martin , which to wing nuts was further evidence that he hated white people , and sided with a known thug and didn’t show any sympathy for Zimmerman who was the real victim. He sided with Black Lives Matter and incited a race war ( anyone tuning into Fox News during these events would have seen Fox pundits like Jeanine Pirro actually inciting race violence  ) in both Ferguson Missouri , and Baltimore , and called for open violence against law enforcement ( Rudy Giuliani brazenly claimed on Fox News ). 

God knows conservatives have never taken it too far with their extreme rhetoric. It wasn’t taking it too far when a racist Tea party member at a town hall meeting called for Obama to be assassinated , without being chastised by the GOP congressman who was present.  Ted Nugent never took it too far when saying that Obama and Clinton should be hung for treason for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi . He was just joking ( Americans were killed in embassy/consulate attacks under Bush , but conservatives never held him accountable , and Democrats and the media never politicized those attacks ). The NRA never took it too far when they sold shooting targets of Barack Obama that bleed. It wasn’t taking it too far when a Muslim free gun store owner sold shooting targets with the faces of Obama , Hillary Clinton , and Bernie Sanders. It wasn’t taking it too far when Donald Trump’s former butler , Anthony Senecal , wrote on his Facebook page calling for the death of Barack Obama. Glenn Beck never took it too far when he fantasized about killing Michael Moore , and Nancy Pelosi.  It wasn’t taking it  too far when Robert Lewis Dear – who was clearly inspired by anti-abortion rhetoric – killed three people in a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado. And Glenn Beck never took it too far with his extreme rhetoric against a little known progressive organization.

Conservatives have always been extreme in their rhetoric against Obama and Democrats , but when Democrats engage in the same behavior , or God forbid , tell the truth about Donald Trump , suddenly we’re back in the dark ages.

New York Post : Jim Brown slams Kaepernick-style protests: ‘I don’t desecrate my flag’

Aviary Photo_131499762678531057.pngNew York Post : Jim Brown slams Kaepernick-style protests: ‘I don’t desecrate my flag’ CConzervative right wingers were

Former professional football player Jim Brown believes Colin Kaepernick is desecrating the flag by kneeling instead of worshiping it. And apparently , that’s just as bad as stepping on it , spitting on it , wiping his nose on it , or even wiping his ass on it.

According to Brown , kneeling is the wrong form of protest.

“I’m an American ,” Brown said in a recent interview with the New York Post. “I don’t desecrate my flag and my National anthem. This is my country and I’ll work out the problems , but I’ll do it in an intelligent manner.”

Well , getting out and marching peacefully in the streets , is protesting in an intelligent manner. But apparently not to people like Jim Brown. No form of protest is the right form of protest  to those  who hate people like Colin Kaepernick. When they take a knee , they are called thugs , and when they do get out in the streets and march peacefully ,  they are called thugs , terrorists , and un American. They get shot and killed by trigger happy cops ,  have their lives smeared by the media , and the police who commit the crimes are portrayed as the true victims. 

According to the article , Kaeprenick began to kneel in order to protest what he alleged was an increasing spate of police brutality against minorities. No allege. Fact. If it wasn’t verifiably a fact that minorities have been shot and or killed using lethal force , and in most cases the police who do the killing , receiving no punishment , Kapernick would have no need to kneel. 

Brown : “If you have a cause , I think you should organize it , present it in a manner where it’s not only you standing or sitting on one knee , but a lot of people who are gonna get behind each other and do something about it. Who is Colin Kaepernick calling on to follow what he’s talking about?”

Apparently a lot of people believe in what Kaepernick is doing. Not everyone believes he’s trashing the flag or disrespecting American soldiers. 

Brown : “Colin has to make up his mind whether he’s truly an activist or a football player.” 

No , he doesn’t. There are no rules that say you can’t be both a professional football player and an activist. 

Brown : “You have to understand there’s intelligence that’s involved , OK? I can’t be two things at once that contradict each other.” Yes , you can. Conservatives do and say things all the time that are contradictory. Like believing in the first amendment , but wanting to ban the free speech of anyone who says something they don’t like. It’s called hypocrisy.

Joel Osteen Tells Flood Survivers : You’re Not The Victims Here , I Am.

Joel Osteen , the tele-preacher who failed to open his church doors in Texas to hurricane Harvey survivors , wants everyone to know he’s the real victim. All those people who lost their homes , and all the people who lost their lives , pales in comparison to what Joel has been going through for being mocked on social media. It’s just more proof that Christians are persecuted.

The Daily Beast: Sean Hannity Lets Tomi Lahren Go First in Fox News Debut

The Daily Beast: Sean Hannity Lets Tomi Lahren Go First in Fox News Debut.


Conservative snowflake and Trump but kisser , Tomi Lahren , makes her debut on the fair and balanced Fox News network.

Once upon a time , earlier this year to be exact , conservative snowflake – AKA Trump ass kissing lapdog , Tomi Lahren had a job at Glenn Beck’s The Blaze. Then , while appearing on The View she called many of her fellow conservatives hypocrites and admitted that she’s pro-choice. Glenn Beck immediately had a hissy fit and told her to pack her bags. Her bombastic commentary was no longer needed at The Blaze , because she hurt his feelings. She bounced around social media like a marble in a pinball machine , whining about Black Lives Matter , and liberals picking on her snowflake president , finally getting a gig with a pro-Trump advocacy group called Great America Alliance , who’s biggest claim to fame were a couple of childish ads , one ironically titled “Witch Hunt , where she ranted about the “liberal establishment media’s” unfair treatment of great King Trump , harping on his so-called connection to Russia , and another designed to make fun of liberals as snowflakes , but proving that conservatives like herself are the real snowflakes.

Marking her debut on Fox News , alongside Hannity and Geraldo Rivera , she immediately began whining about Hilary Clinton’s emails , outraged that only snowflakes like herself were still interested in the subject.  

Lahren was apparently upset that the FBI had decided not to pursue a Freedom Of Information Act request against Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“It’s in everybody’s interest to know the truth , right?” Hannity said.

“Of course it is ,” she screeched. “And the funny part of this whole thing is that her privacy somehow trumps our right to know. I’m sorry , but when you use a private email on a private server , your privacy rights are out the window  when you’re secretary of the United States. You don’t have privacy anymore.”

Tomi  and her fans still haven’t gotten over the fact that no one but themselves are interested in the so-called Benghazi scandal and Clinton’s so-called email scandal , and have ignored the fact that they have been investigated literally a million times , and have found nothing. They just want to whine like the snowflakes they are. 

Rivera was the only voice of sanity on Hannity , telling the two snowflakes that the Clinton email scandal was a dead horse they should stop fellating. Well , he didn’t use those words exactly. “Enough with Hillary’s emails ,” he concluded. “It’s a big yawner.”  

So , saying that the public doesn’t have a right to know or that we’re not interested , that’s a load of crap , number one!” Tomi screeched again. “Number two , how about we make a deal? How about when the mainstream media stops covering Russia day in and day out , maybe we can wrap up the Hillary email scandal.”

But that will never happen. Hillary Clinton’s emails will be a dead horse that Lahren will beat with a stick again and again attempting to bring new life to , and the media will do the same with the equally questionable Trump/Russia scandal.

America Love It Or Leave It?

While on the way home from the market one Saturday morning , I noticed the words America , Love It Or Leave It , on the back window of a vehicle. I’ve seen these types of so-called patriotic messages on other automobiles over the years. I couldn’t help but wonder , was this guy a Trump supporter or a Republican? Many of those who display these types of statements on their vehicles , no doubt see themselves as true patriots , and are always conservatives , who believe America can only be great again when there are no liberals , no Muslims , no gays , and no illegal immigrants. They claim to love America , but adamantly oppose gay rights ,  and freedom of speech for anyone but themselves. They believe the civil rights group like Black Lives Matter to be a racist hate organization that assassinates white people , and police officers. They believe athletes who protest racial injustice , who take a knee during the National Anthem ,  are un-American , and they deny that racism still exists.

Many of them also believe that America is already great , with very little room for improvement. To the America right or wrong types , if you criticize America with a Republican in the White House , you’re unpatriotic. But if its a Democrat , it’s patriotism. Which is a bullshit argument. Criticizing America is an act of patriotism. Dissent is the highest form of patriotism. When our country does something wrong , we have an obligation to criticize our government , and redress grievances. They are supposed to represent the people , not special interests , not lobbies , not corporations. We can and should  vote them out for not representing us.

America is already a great nation , despite its many imperfections : its failing educational system , infrastructure , healthcare , getting homeless Americans off the streets , providing jobs that pay a living wage that people are capable of living on without having to resort to food stamps just to feed themselves and their families , getting corporate money out of politics , and investing in cleaner energy sources while decreasing dependence on fossil fuels. When these issues are addressed and taken seriously by enough Americans who are sick and tired of the same old nonsense , and are willing to do something about it , then America will be an even greater nation. But it may take a revolution.
