    Yeah... I'm convinced the current crop of Democraps would be huffing Hillarys skid marks.

    It’s Not Just CNN Trying to Incite Mob Attacks, Either

    This is not just an isolated case of people with broad media power attempting to use it to punish people with less. Also the Fourth of July, CNN posted what perhaps they thought was an empowering story: A plus-sized model, Natalie Hage, confronting a “fat-shamer” on a flight, berating him for thinking badly of her because of her weight.

    How exactly did this man shame Hage? He sent private text messages to a friend. That’s it. There was no communication between Hage and her seatmate, nor between the seatmate and anyone else on the flight, nor did the seatmate post anything about Hage publicly. The same cannot be said for Hage, who appears to have achieved success with the intended goal of posting the confrontation: her 15 minutes.

    Hage took photos of her seatmate’s private text message conversation before takeoff, then filmed her confrontation with him upon landing in order to share the video with her 100,000 social media followers. She berated him, “Don’t ever treat someone like that again.”

    To be clear: the man didn’t treat Hage in any way. He sat next to her, she leaned over and invaded his privacy, and photographed his private communication to share it with the world to amp up her profile and punish him for private actions. In this bizarre universe CNN and “Good Morning America” (who first ran the story) have made Hage, a woman who invaded the privacy of a stranger, into the victim.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Besides claiming the Republican Party has become “pro-Putin,” MSNBC host Joy Reid said during a panel discussion that the “alt-right” believes Russian President Vladimir Putin is “advancing white Christianity.”

    Reid, the host of “AM Joy,” made her remarks Wednesday on “Deadline: White House,” hosted by Nicolle Wallace, Real Clear Politics said.

    Reid said her “old, cold-warrior Reaganite father must be spinning in his grave to know” that the GOP is becoming “Putinite, pro-Putin” at its base.

    “And it’s not just the president,” Wallace said. “There are loud voices in conservative media who celebrate [WikiLeaks founder Julian] Assange, who praise just the brute strength of Putin.”

    “That’s right,” Reid said. “And for a lot of reasons, the alt-right — you know, for these sort-of weird, sort-of white nationalist reasons — they feel he’s advancing white Christianity.”

    She said that while “Russia is an adversary of the United States” and “wants to dismantle our influence in Europe,” President Donald Trump “seems to agree that we should have less influence in Europe, that we should detach ourselves from the NATO alliance. That we should even dismantle our own cybersecurity and make ourselves more vulnerable to Russia, make ourselves more vulnerable to their influence.”

    'My Body, My Choice': Feminist Mom Edits 3YO Daughter's Disney Princess Book. It's Ridiculous.



    A feminist mother who bragged about editing her three-year-old daughter’s Disney princess book in order to smash archaic gender roles, or something, has predictably been praised by fellow feminists.

    The lovely edits include rejecting that horrible notion of being kind, promoting abortion, and emasculating Aladdin, along with other silly feel-good feminist nonsense.

    Danielle Lindemann, a sociologist who studies — wait for it — gender roles, decided to crank the anti-gender role awareness “up to a whole new level” after her daughter took a liking to a Disney princess-themed book she received as a gift. (The girl must already be suffering from internalized misogyny.)

    "The constant inundation with princess stuff drives me crazy," Lindemann told POPSUGAR MOMS. "Because it's basically teaching these little girls that their worth lies in looking nice and hooking up with the right guy. Still. In 2016."

    “My daughter wanted to read it over and over, so to prevent my eyes from rolling permanently into the back of my head, I decided to make a few edits,” she whined.

    Whatever Lindemann’s contention is with Disney princesses, the pages of the book she publicly edited did not promote the idea to “little girls that their worth lies in looking nice and hooking up with the right guy.” Not even close, actually.

    One of the edits was

    "A princess likes to dress up..."

    ...in her medical scrubs when she goes to work as a neurosurgeon.

    First comment on the story?

    "A princess likes to dress up..."

    ...in a full hijab so the religious mob doesn't throw battery acid in her face.
    "I aim to misbehave."

    Indeed

    ok this was back in 2016 but ....




    Meet The Idiot Who Cancelled His Holiday Party Because Trump Supporters Might Have Come



    The intolerance on the left demonstrated throughout the 2016 presidential election and soon following November 8 has been quite impressive, even by insanely high leftist standards. Triggered by the shocking win of President-elect Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton supporters spiraled into an uncontrollable fit of rage: violent "protests" broke out in big cities; Ivanka Trump was harassed on an airplane while traveling with her three young children; liberal has-beens called for disruptions on Inauguration Day; college Trump voters were shamed by their professors, and the list goes on.

    On Sunday, another liberal highlighted the fascistic nature of the left: Dallas resident Henry S. Rosen, writing in the Daily Kos, explained that he canceled his annual post-holiday party because he feared Trump voters, whom he's banned from his house, might attend.

    This, of course, was the only rational solution.

    Rosen cannot seriously be expected to open his safe-space Dallas home to now-former friends who voted differently than he did. That would be insane...

    I'd be willing to bet he's got a lot of former friends and tennis partners delighted they have one less crazy to deal with now.

    The Atlantic Claims Monday's Solar Eclipse Is Racist
    Essayist professor says that the solar system has an "implicit bias" against African-Americans



    At first glance, the headline, "American Blackout" appears to be an attempt to one-up the Boston Globe, who claimed that the sun, dastardly conservative that it is, was biased towards Trump supporters, since the swath of the country that will witness 100% coverage, is made up, mainly, of counties that went for Trump in the 2016 election.

    But no, the essay, penned, unsurprisingly, by a university professor — Alice Ristroph of Brooklyn Law School — insists that the solar system, which itself exhibits signs of "implicit bias," has it out for minorities.

    On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people. Presumably, this is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system.

    I think we can safely presume, yes, that the solar system is not capable of exhibiting either implicit nor explicit biases or, frankly, any preferences whatsoever. But of course, that doesn't mean the solar system itself isn't guilty of, say, "inanimate object privilege."

    Ristroph goes on:

    Oregon, where this begins, is almost entirely white. The 10 percent or so of state residents who do not identify as white are predominantly Latino, American Indian, Alaskan, or Asian. There are very few black Oregonians.
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
