Ten things that trigger diaper wearing conservatives …
- Gun Control. The conservatives at TPUSA are so extreme in their ideology , they believe there are no liberal gun owners. To them , all liberals are the same : they just want to abolish the second amendment along with individual gun ownership. Straw manning liberals as a whole is their biggest proponent.
- Barack Obama. Trump loving conservatives hate the fact that a black man was ever president of the United States. He did almost everything they loved under George Bush : he increased drone activity in seven different places around the world. He kept Gitmo open. He increased domestic spying tenfold. He deported a record number of illegal immigrants. But nothing was good enough for them : he was weak on foreign policy , he hated America , he was soft on Muslim terrorists , and he allowed illegal immigrants to cross the southern borders unchecked. Of course , he did none of that.
Criticizing Donald Trump. Progressives didn’t give a damn who criticized Obama. When Obama did something wrong , he deserved criticism , and he did dome pretty fucked up shit ( see above ). But the Obama haters never criticized him over any of the unconstitutional things he actually did. Instead , they chose to attack him for made up , ridiculous reasons , like his birth certificate , health care ( Obama care ) , abortion , racial division , the deaths of police officers , and terrorist attacks.
Now that Trump is president , he’s the God-King who can do no wrong. Progressives are not blaming and criticizing him over made up nonsense. They’re criticizing him over his shitty policies , his tax cuts for the mega wealthy , pulling out of the Paris climate agreement , attacking Obama care , destroying the Iran nuclear deal , his attacks on the press , and the first amendment. But to his worst supporters who don’t care what he does , he’s the greatest president ever , even though he’s done nothing to earn that title. According to them , he’s a great success : the economy is booming ( it is , but only for the wealthy ) the middle class are getting their big tax breaks , and ISIS has been defeated! When progressives point out that none of these things are true , Trump lovers like Tomi Lahren get triggered and go on the defensive.
Free Speech For Progressives. One of the biggest straw men from the right is that liberals and progressives hate the constitution. But it’s really conservatives who hate the constitution. Conservatives have no respect for it. Free speech : when it comes to free speech , conservatives like Tomi Lahren claim to be free speech absolutists , and make a huge stink about conservatives speakers who are protested on college campuses , and yet they behave in the same way they complain that liberals do. Through groups like TPUSA , and Campus Reform , they intimidate college instructors who don’t tow the conservative point of view , and target them for harrassment. They also have their voices on hate radio , the media and in the senate ( like that whiny little bitch , Chuck Grassley ) bitching and moaning about progressives protesting , ‘encouraging mob rule’. They want ‘civility’ when they’re in control , and want liberals and progressives to just shut up , and take it. So , spare me the bullshit that liberals want to suppress free speech.
- Not Standing For The Anthem. Another straw man is that liberals hate the flag , because they hate America and are unpatriotic. Liberals are unpatriotic because they hate free speech , hate the second amendment , and won’t stand up for the national anthem. But conservatives love the flag and free speech ( even as they screamed at Colin Kaepernick to get the f**k out of America and burned his jersey , and engage in the same juvenile behavior as some liberals do on college campuses ) , and they love the second amendment. You can’t be a patriotic American unless you absolutely worship the second Amendment and the NRA.
Criticizing Capitalism. Conservatives mistakenly believe we have a capitalist system. We have crony capitalism that benefits the wealthy and corporations , not the middle class.
- Mainstream Media. Conservatives who rail against mainstream media will never admit that Fox News is just as mainstream as the media they whine about , and it’s even more biased. Fox News is the media arm of the Republican party. MSNBC is the media arm of the Democratic party. It’s laughable when conservatives claim that CNN is liberal media , when all they do is bend over backward to placate Republicans , and more often than not , represent both sides of an argument in a political debate.
- Mocking Thoughts And Prayers. Conservatives , like those at TPUSA , are apparently too stupid to know that liberals can also be Christians , and that liberal Christians also pray. The difference between conservative Christians and liberal Christians , is that liberal Christians tend to be more tolerant and open minded , and don’t believe thoughts and prayers are an appropriate response to gun violence , as opposed to actual laws.
Progressive Patriotism. Conservatives are easily triggered by black civil rights and other progressive groups exercising their right to participate in the Democratic process of dissent. They also believe it is standing for the national anthem , and defending a Republican president from criticism , both of which in their minds , are unpatriotic. When it’s a Democratic president , no criticism is too harsh.
- Victim Hood. Conservatives often claim liberals whine about everything , but conservatives have cornered the market on victim hood. From college campuses to mainstream media , conservatives are perpetual victims who just can’t catch a break.
Of course , people like Dana didn’t see any hope or change , because she was one of those conservative pundits masquerading as a journalist , with her head up her ass. If the ACA , which they loved referring to as Obama Care , wasn’t hope and change , what was it? Millions of people who didn’t have health insurance , due to preexisting conditions , now had insurance. To them , it was hope and it was change , compared to the system that previously existed. But Dana and her conservative cronies in the mainstream media , were too busy making up death panels and others conspiracies about the ACA , never bothering to tell their audience that the real death panels are and always have been , and always will be , the private insurance companies , and that the mandate goes all the way back to the conservative think tank , the Heritage Foundation.
They attacked it for years , claiming it to be socialized , government-run health care , and that it was unconstitutional , even as the Republicans tried unsuccessfully to repeal it countless times. Now we find out in an ironic twist that Republicans – most notably , conservatives like Tomi Lahren – who have been openly condemning it for years , are using it.
In another note of irony , it’s been more than six months since Trump became president , and they still haven’t been able to repeal the law , nor come up with a decent one of their own. Yes , look at where you are now. Stuck with Obama Care. At least for now.
🍁 Tomi Lahren is one of those conservatives who often doesn’t have a clue what they are talking about. In this case complaining about mainstream media. It’s ironic that they fail to realize that they themselves are a part of the mainstream media. Any form of entertainment , be it news , radio , movies , television , and magazines , it’s all mainstream. It makes no difference whether it’s left or right. Rupert Murdoch owns a vast media entertainment empire , including newspapers in the United Kingdom , the United States , dozens of cable channels , and Fox News. Glenn Beck owns a television , radio network of news and entertainment including an internet entertainment channel. Rush Limbaugh is mainstream. Michael Savage is mainstream. Glenn Beck is mainstream. They see themselves as truth and objectivity in a sea of liberalism. They see themselves as “real news” , and anyone else who doesn’t agree with or promote the conservative opinion or view of the world , whether it be entertainment or politics , is “fake news” or has a “liberal bias.” The irony is that pundits like Dana Loesch , Megan Kelly , Shawn Hannity , Tucker Carlson , and Rush Limbaugh are every bit as elite – earning salaries in the millions – and mainstream as the so-called liberal mainstream media elites they so often bitch and moan about. And now that Trump is president , they have their heads buried firmly up his ass. None of them more blatant in their ass licking than Tomi.
Dana Loesch. Republican , NRA lap dog , shill , hypocrite.
The purpose of the news media is to objectively report news , and to hold government accountable. The news media these days are not interested in truth or objectivity ; their main objective is to make a profit , even at the expense of truth and accuracy , so it’s up to us to be their watch dog. That’s why we have organizations like Media Matters.
Dana’s problem with the mainstream media – AKA the so-called liberal media – is that it doesn’t tow the Conservative line one hundred percent. Therefore it has a “liberal bias.” The idea that just because there may be a few more left leaning news outlets , there is a huge liberal conspiracy in the media , and that sources like Fox News , The Blaze , and other Conservatives outlets , are the few sole bastions of true and unbiased news. It’s absurd. The Blaze websites bi-line is Truth Lives Here , which is ironic , since it frequently publishes click bait articles , and misinformation taken from other questionable Conservative news sources. Hardly a bastion of truth.
Dana Loesch complaining about mainstream media bias is not only ironic , but comical , in light of the fact that everyone at The Blaze – herself included – are lap dogs for the Republican party establishment elite. She’s also a lap dog for the NRA.

There are plenty of ridiculous Liberal Logic 101 memes on the internet , but this one perfectly demonstrates the ‘alternate reality’ in which the typical liberal hating wing nut resides.
Liberals were not that concerned about Ebola , because it wasn’t an outbreak. A total of three Americans contracted the disease , and recovered. The fourth , a Liberian national , by the name of Thomas Duncan , died after contracting the disease. But Conservative media , played the non-epidemic as if it were the end of civilization as we know it , blaming the president at the time – Barack Obama – of allowing the disease into the country on purpose , because he hates America , because it’s a racist country.
Why doesn’t Conservative media talk about gun violence? That’s a real epidemic. An ongoing epidemic that kills an estimated 30,000 Americans annually. Yet , Conservative media is completely silent on the issue. Why? Does the right hate America? Would it be too extreme to say that they hate their country , like Bryan Fischer absurdly claimed that Obama intentionally allowed Ebola into the U.S. because he hates America and believes it needs to be punished for its racism?
There were dozens of incidents in 2014 where children were accidentally shot because of the negligence of an adult. Children who got their hands on loaded weapons and accidentally shot themselves or others. Why weren’t Conservatives in the media talking about this? Where was the outrage? Where was their demand to regulate guns? There were hundreds of incidents in 2014 where children were murdered with a gun. Again , there was no demand to regulate guns , but they wanted to enforce travel bans because one person died of Ebola? The media , particularly the Conservative media , believe that it’s more important to spread fear about a disease that killed one person in America ( who actually wasn’t from America ) , and yet they have nothing to say about the dangers of children dying by guns every year?
Who really have their heads buried up their asses? It sure as hell isn’t liberals.
George Bush was given a CIA intelligence briefing that Bin Ladin would most likely soon attack the U.S.. He ignored it , and as a result , 9/11 happened. It’s amazing to me that Bush apologists like Rudy Giuliani are willing to ignore his incompetence , absolve him of any responsibility , and shamelessly claim that he kept America safe. Never mind 9/11 , the Iraq and Afghanistan wars , the numerous domestic terrorist attacks , and the multiple embassy/consulate attacks that occurred during his watch ; none of them count in their twisted logic. But Benghazi is worse than any of them because … something.
Democrats didn’t politicize 9/11. Democrats and Republicans united , because America was attacked. Too bad Republicans and Conservatives couldn’t do the same after Benghazi. All they cared about was using it as a means of discrediting a president they hated , so they created a conspiracy around it , including the bullshit claim that he allowed it to happen.
“For those with no brains , who haven’t a clue how logic works.”
Like the main stream Conservative media did with Obama’s birth certificate , Benghazi , the so-called IRS scandal , Solyndra , Fast And Furious , Health Care reform ( Obama Care ) and a host of other non scandals? The entire real lame stream news media , including Fox News , Breitfart , The Gateway Pundit ( AKA the Stupidest man on the internet ), News Max , News Busters , The Blaze , Rush Limbaugh , Accuracy In Media , World Nut Daily , Media Research Center , and Conservatives News Service whined incessantly over everything Obama said and did. Not just about the birth certificate , Benghazi , and Fast And Furious , but absurd nonsense about gun confiscation , executive orders , saluting a marine with a latte in his hand , wearing a tan suit , how many vacations he and his family took , how much he golfed , to what he put on his hamburger.
Can we expect a similar type of treatment toward Trump from the so-called liberal media? Not likely. In fact , we’ve already seen them fawn over him when he bombed Syria.
