But in the very next sentence, he said, “The idea that an 8-year-old child, 10-year-old child, decides, you know, ‘I want to be transgender, that’s what I think I’d like to be, it’d make my life a lot easier’– there should be zero discrimination.”
In other words: Go for it, kid.
Because 8-year-old kids have it all figured out, right? They would never make permanent decision they’d regret at the ripe old age of 8, right?
Because there’s no way 8-year-old kids wouldn’t be convinced to become trans solely due to the fact that our degenerate mainstream culture now glorifies and glamorizes transgenderism, right?
Last night at Trump’s townhall event in Miami, he was, as expected, treated to a full-on debate with the “moderator,” NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, a very angry, very liberal woman who, in typical angry-liberal-woman-on-a-powertrip fashion, seized her opportunity to scold and hector Trump for an hour-plus.
First, she hectored him about his supposed “refusal” to condemn White Supremacists, and then, when he set her straight on that, she seamlessly pivoted to QAnon, another group that Trump Must Condemn Or Else He’s Literally Hitler:
Savannah Guthrie was not pleasant, to say the least. She’s one of those angry, liberal white women who thinks she knows everything and literally can’t EVEN 24/7. The worst part of the exchange was when she said:
“QAnon is this theory that Democrats are satanic pedophile ring and that you are the savior of that. Now can you just, once and for all, state that that is completely not true, and disavow Qanon in its entirety?”
(Anytime a woman beings a sentence with, “Can you just…?” you know you’re in for an earful. “Can you just…?” it sounds like a question, but in reality it’s a demand.)
Then Trump goes, “I know nothing about QAnon.”
And the way she snapped at him: “I just told you.” She was straight scolding him like she probably lectures every beta male she’s ever dated. “Hey, honey, what time are we supposed to be at your parents’ place again?” “I JUST TOLD YOU!!!!!!”
And she said it like her word is more credible than the Holy Gospel. “I JUST TOLD YOU WHAT QANON WAS, YOU STUPID WHITE MALE!” No one can dispute her characterization of QAnon, because she is an empowered female journalist, and therefore the most reliable and objective source of information on the planet.
I loved Trump’s answer: “What you tell me doesn’t necessarily make it fact, I hate to tell you.”
He has clearly dealt with bossy, know-it-all women like Savannah Guthrie before. And I’m sure that made her blood boil. It probably took every ounce of restraint she had to not start barking at him, “TOXIC MASCULINITY! Don’t Mansplain to me! Men have HAD their time! THE FUTURE IS FEMALE!!!”
But the funniest part was that she accepted Trump’s claim that he didn’t know about QAnon, and yet still demanded he denounce it anyway based solely on her explaining it to him literally 10 seconds ago. “I DEMAND you denounce something you only just found out about 10 seconds ago!!!!”
Anyone else think it’s a little funny that the media takes “Antifa” at their word that they are merely against fascism, but doesn’t take QAnon at their word that they’re against Satanic pedophiles? We’re supposed to think Antifa is awesome despite all the evidence to the contrary because they say they’re Against Fascism. In fact, some in the media go to extraordinary lengths to defend Antifa, like CNN’s Chris Cuomo who tweeted this out in 2017:
No matter how much violence and crime Antifa commits, the media will always play dumb. “Hey, they’re just people who don’t like fascism. There’s nothing wrong with Antifa.But QAnon on the other hand, are a violent, dangerous terrorist organization worse than Al Qaeda and we must spend every waking minute talking about them.”
But you know the drill here: as always, everything the media says is a lie, and not only that but the complete opposite is true. No different here with Antifa/QAnon.
I tried to look into the whole Q stuff and a lot of it was just way too outlandish to really wrap my arms around. For instance, the belief that JFK Jr. is still alive more 20 years after the plane crash, that there’s going to be a nationwide blackout in which every corrupt politician, celebrity and official is rounded up and arrested.
And as much as I like Trump, I think it’s weird that some of the more hardcore Q people treat him like he’s Jesus or something. He is, at the end of the day, a mortal man, and thereby imperfect and liable to disappoint you. Your salvation will not come from Trump. But I’m sure most QAnon adherents are not that hardcore into it. From what I’ve seen on social media, most of them are just patriots who love their country and hate to see bad people in power getting away with the things they get away with.
But most importantly: QAnon people are not rioting and burning down major cities. They are not violently assaulting people. They are not smashing up stores and government buildings. They are not “occupying” whole city neighborhoods and turning them into lawless thunderdomes.
QAnon has not caused even a fraction of a percent of the mayhem and chaos that Antifa/BLM have.
But the media knows the chaos caused by Antifa/BLM has really hurt Biden’s chances in the election, so they’re desperately trying to make it seem like there are groups just like Antifa/BLM on the right and they’re causing just as much–if not more–violence and chaos. At first it was the Proud Boys, now it’s QAnon that the media is trying to convince the “low information voters” are equally as responsible for all the mayhem we saw this summer. They’re trying to create a false equivalence so they can say, “Hey, both sides were equally responsible for the violence and chaos.” Because this muddies the waters and neutralizes a very strong Republican selling point this year, which is simply that it’s the Democrats who are behind all the looting and rioting and anarchy.
And it’s a strong Republican talking point because it’s the truth. But the media is trying to cancel it out by building up this narrative that, “Well, yeah, Antifa and BLM are bad, but the Proud Boys and QAnon are equally as bad.”
But they’re not. They’re nowhere close to as bad. In fact, again, most QAnon supporters are flag-waving patriots who do little more than share spicy memes on social media.
Trump was 100% correct to turn the tables on Guthrie by asking when the media will hold Biden’s feet to the fire and demand he given an unequivocal condemnation of Antifa. Democrats should not be allowed to continue existing in their fantasy world. At some point they’re going to have to face the real world, where Antifa is the real problem.
It reminds me of that old quote from a Vietnam War general: “It became necessary to destroy the town to save it.”
Everything they accuse us of, they are guilty of. There was no “election interference” by or for Trump. The media and big tech, however, are working as hard as they can to interfere in the election for Biden.
There is quite a bit going on here. Let’s start chronologically. First came the NY Post story, which was published at 5:00am and had this headline:
Here’s an excerpt of the article, and I want to spend some time on it because despite the ensuing chaos, the article itself is important:
Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.
The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.
An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.
The computer was dropped off at a repair shop in Biden’s home state of Delaware in April 2019, according to the store’s owner.
So this confirms what we all know: the only reason Hunter Biden was appointed to the Burisma board and given a ridiculous $50k a month salary despite having zero qualifications is–and this may shock you–because Hunter’s dad was the Vice President of the United States and they wanted buy influence with Joe.
I’d say this tweet from Danielle D’Souza (Dinesh’s daughter) about sums things up:
But that’s not all. Now the story takes a turn for the bizarre:
Other material extracted from the computer includes a raunchy, 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter, who’s admitted struggling with addiction problems, smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.
The Hunter photos are floating around online. Here’s one of Hunter asleep with a crack pipe in his mouth:
This is just wild. Just imagine if this was Don Jr. or Eric Trump. It would be one of the biggest scandals in the history of the United States. It would be all over the place. Wall-to-wall media coverage, wailing about how the Trump family has sullied the White House, non-stop lampooning on late night talk shows and SNL, etc.
But instead, Big Tech has taken swift, decisive action to completely shut the story down. NY Post Editor Sohrab Ahmari shared this screenshot:
“Your Tweet couldn’t be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”
Yeah–harmful to the Biden campaign.
Another NYPost reporter elaborated further on Twitter’s move:
“The Hunter Biden stories violate its rules against ‘distribution of hacked material,” apparently.
So it’s not that the Hunter Biden story is false, it’s how it got leaked. Ace of Spades summed it up well: “They have never done this with any of the 8,000 anti-Trump “bombshells” that were soon proven false. But this one, they’re censoring.”
The “Spreading Leaked Information BAD Switch” has now been turned ON. It was OFF, however, for all the Trump-Russia anonymous leaks.
Facebook is also censoring it, although they euphemize it as “reducing distribution” of the Post’s article.
This is how Big Tech Fascism arrives: hidden behind seemingly innocuous Newspeak terms like “reducing distribution.”
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) commented on the significance of Twitter locking the account of the NY Post, saying “Has Twitter ever locked the account of a major news outlet? Why is Twitter attacking the free press.” We’re in unprecedented territory here. It feels like Big Tech is getting bolder in its censorship with each passing year.
I wonder, though, if Big Tech hadn’t immediately hit the panic button on this story, if it would have been as big a deal as it has become. Mike Cernovich pointed out that Big Tech censorship, rather than Hunter Biden, has now become the bigger story:
No one is disputing the veracity of The Post’s story — not even Hunter Biden. His lawyer George R. Mesires wouldn’t deign to comment on the reporting, simply attacking the messenger. The Biden campaign did the same, dismissing it all as “discredited,” while saying that no meeting showed up on Joe Biden’s official schedule on those dates. (Well, if it wasn’t “official,” guess it didn’t happen.)
Yet Facebook is deliberately trying to keep its users from reading and deciding for themselves what it means.
This when it did nothing to restrict access to the recent New York Times story on President Trump’s tax returns. And the Times didn’t say a word about how it obtained that confidential personal data.
An executive of one of the most powerful media platforms in the country, who brags about his years working as a partisan Democratic operative, publicly boasting of his attempt to keep Americans from learning something embarrassing about the Democratic presidential candidate. Facebook isn’t a media platform. It’s a propaganda machine.
Yeah, but the leaked Trump tax returns were OK because Trump Bad. The leaked Hunter Emails are bad because Biden Good.
Of course, Blue Check Journalists, the Power Establishment’s enforcers of dogma and silencers of dissent, are trying their hardest to make sure nobody sees the Hunter Biden story:
Yes, Kyle, tell us more about those “obvious flaws,” which are so obvious that nobody is even mentioning them.
That old saw about how journalists are supposed to “afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted,” has now been turned on its head. “Journalism” now is about afflicting the afflicted and comforting the comfortable.
Anyone with a functioning brain could see this coming years ago. After Trump won in 2016, the entire Power Establishment–the career politicians, the media, tech, Hollywood, deep state, Fortune 500, academia, etc.–decided that they were going to do whatever it took to not only get Trump out of office ASAP, but ensure they never lost control of the White House to an outsider again.
Even if it meant lying, killing free speech, corrupting the youth, provoking violence and chaos, waging mass psychological warfare on the public, or decimating the economy under the pretense of a global pandemic–or all of those things combined. They were and remain determined to retake power by any means necessary.
But know this: the more shocking the lengths they go to, the more it reveals how desperate they are.
CNN knew exactly what they were doing with this headline, and they were called out accordingly:
The “but” is what gives it away. It indicates owning a gun is somehow a disqualifier for her to be a judge. As if non-gun owners are the only people who should be allowed to be judges in gun rights cases.
CNN’s use of the word “fairly” is of course totally misleading. What they really mean by “fairly” is “against gun owners.”
CNN of course would see no problem with a SCOTUS nominee not owning a gun, since that nominee would be more likely to rule against gun rights. Which is what the hopelessly biased Leftwing activists at CNN want. They have no interest at all in “fairness.”
Leftwing media outlets only care about potential bias when it’s not leftwing bias. They sound the alarm and flip their lids when there’s even a hint of bias going the other way. “She owns a gun! There’s no way she’s going to strike down the Second Amendment like we want her to!”
The only principle these people adhere to is winning. Every “rule” they try to impose in the name of “fairness” is simply an attempt to further tilt the playing field in their favor. They’re just so sneaky and underhanded and dishonest, and go to great lengths to try to disguise their political activism.
“Hey, we’re just trying to make sure she judges gun rights cases fairly!”
They really think nobody can see through their bullshit, don’t they?
[YouTuber] Ya Boi Zach makes a point, inadvertently, which is also made by Greg Lukianoff.
Ya Boi Zach notes that people who have mild bits of insanity or character defects are often put on the right path by people just telling them “You’re being weird, you should stop that.”
Ya Boi Zach, for example, is maybe a bit on the spectrum, and used to just walk into the middle of a group discussing some topic and completely ignore their topic to declare that he now wanted to talk about comic books (or whatever).
After being told a few times that this isn’t normal, that you’re supposed to let people talk out their current topic before trying to conversation-jack, he got the message and stopped doing that. He was told he was being weird, so he learned the social cues and norms and stopped being weird. (In that way, at least.)
But what happens when people stop chiding you for your weird behaviors? What happens, in fact, when the dominant leftwing culture begins praising you for your weirdest, most mentally-ill behaviors?
This phenomenon where weird, mentally-ill behaviors are no longer discouraged but in fact encouraged explains a lot of where we are now as a country.
This is of course exactly what’s happened with emotional fragility and meltdowns and “triggering.” In the past, more mentally stable people would tell the less mentally-stable/emotionally labile people to stop freaking out, and to start acting like a normal, mentally-healthy person.
But the dominant leftwing culture decided that being “triggered” and having bizarre childlike tantrums over everything was somehow virtuous, and so they began teaching children and young adults that it was healthy and noble to start quivering and shrieking any time you saw something you didn’t like.
And thereby: Our dominant culture stopped reigning people in from mental illness, and started instead affirmatively training people to be mentally ill, and to in fact cultivate mental illness the way one might cultivate a wine connoisseurship or gourmet’s palate —cultivating aspects of insanity as a badge of cultural prestige.
The political left — already proven by every single test ever given — was already by far the most neurotic and hysterical cohort on earth. And yes, the group most likely to have been diagnosed with a mental illness.
And now they’ve reshaped society to mirror their own inner lunacy, so that lunatic behavior is now deemed sane and very lunatic behavior is now deemed saintly.
Ace was commenting on this ridiculous article posted in the Washington Post by a woman who was bragging about the extreme measures she takes to keep herself safe from… 😱😱😱THE VIRUS 😱😱😱.
You can find some quotes from the article at Ace’s website, but here are a few of the most outlandish:
I start each morning by taking my temperature with an infrared thermometer and my oxygen level with my oximeter. I check the conjunctival tissue in my eyes in the mirror; examine my feet for covid-19 toes, which are skin lesions or bumps. I take a quick whiff of something smelly like peanut butter or perfume.
If I pass all these tests, I can enter the world. I fold a tissue and place it inside the top of my mask to absorb moisture and prevent steaming or sweating. I wear a face shield over my mask should anyone sneeze or cough on me, which might protect from droplets, although I know that aerosols can creep around facial shields. I protect my eyes with “onion goggles” that have a sponge around the inside and provides a tighter fit than regular glasses. I wash them with soap and water, which seems to reduce fogging better than the “fog cloths” I purchased.
I remove everything before I get in my car (or house) if I’ve been somewhere like a doctor’s office. In the car, I put everything in a large brown paper bag and drench my hands with sanitizer I keep away from the sun, so the alcohol doesn’t start a fire. I sanitize the car’s indoor and outdoor door handles, steering wheel, gear shift and radio buttons before I turn the air conditioner off and open the front and back windows during the trip so anything left will hopefully fly away.
“Gender non-conformity” and the dozens of letters that have been tacked onto the end of “LGBT” (including “T” itself), Covid hysteria, Trump Derangement Syndrome are all part of the same phenomenon: mentally-ill behaviors that are now encouraged instead of discouraged.
NFL coaches are fined $100,000 if they take their masks off on the sidelines during games, even though everyone around them has been tested. “Mask culture” is glorified in almost every commercial and television event nowadays.
What we really need to be doing is laughing at perfectly healthy, very low-risk people who nevertheless go to ridiculous extremes to avoid a media-hyped virus that amounts to little more than the flu.
Again, I’ve had Covid. It’s the flu. The fact that we have shut down the entire country for seven months because of it is nothing short of insanity.
We need to be making fun of people who are afraid of Covid. We need to be socially shaming them for being so neurotic and irrational about this virus, so that the rest of us can go back to normal. I hate to put it in such stark terms, but we should not be encouraging and validating these irrational and insane people. Our whole society should not be bending over backwards for these brainwashed idiots because they’re terrified of the flu.
I understand if someone is high risk and wants to take precautions–and maybe the lady that wrote the WaPo article is, in which case I can sort of understand where she’s coming from. But there are so many people out there that are not thinking rationally about the Coronavirus. We have all seen them out in public, and we all probably know at least one.
Let the rest of us go back to normal. We’ll accept the risks.
As to Ace’s point about leftists being mentally ill, it’s scientifically proven that the further left you are, the more likely you are to be mentally ill:
This long article goes into the matter in pretty exhaustive fashion, if it’s a topic that interests you.
