CNN doesn’t believe the premise in its own “This Is An Apple” ad

CNN, known affectionately to its critics since the 1990s as “The Clinton News Network” has since then not disappointed in regards to maintaining that title. In the era of Trump this has especially been the case as the network obsesses over Russia conspiracies and any passing opportunity to paint the President in the worst possible light. Perhaps in response to the push-back against this editorial slant that has frequently led to the network being labeled “fake news”, CNN released this strange ad using fruit to symbolize objective reality and the networks claim to reporting it…

The obvious response to the ad is of course the Leftist stance that CNN has editorially endorsed that is completely opposite than the one taken in the video when it comes to sex and gender, which is that science does not dictate reality – feelings do. Which is to say that an apple can become a banana merely by deciding such and if you fail to call “banana” on that which your senses and scientific results prove to be an apple then you are a bigot.

The National Rifle Association took a shot at the ad and one of the networks hosts with this parody.

The ad also made the network a prime target for Banana/Apple musings by on-air CNN talent such as this tweet below by former Hillary Clinton spokesman and current CNN contributor Brian Fallon who mocked the Republican candidate for Governor in Virginia by tweeting a picture of those dumb white nationalists holding their tiki torches and labeling it a “live look” at his campaign strategy meeting. Get it?? Because he stated he would preserve American heritage and not continue the statue-teardown trend, and so in classic Leftist rules – if you don’t go along with the new rule they just made up, you are a racist/sexist/bigot/homophobe. Harr harr. This of course begs the question tweeted by a Washington Free Beacon reporter, “is this tweet from your employee an apple or a banana? Please advise”.

Whether something is an Apple or other fruit is often determined by CNN via President Trump saying it.

This is of course because CNN editorially takes an anti-Trump slant to its reporting, and for good reason considering a source that is guilty of making a typo can’t be trusted.

That’s why CNN holds this President accountable.



A Guide to Clinton Scandals

Nannygate, Travelgate, Whitewater, Filegate: it’s tough to remember all the scandals that plagued then-President Bill and Hillary Clinton through the ’90s. For millennials — here’s what you missed. For everyone else, here’s a refresher. (Sarah Parnass, Adriana Usero/The Washington Post)

Video: White Liberals Think Black People are Helpless Losers

Ami Horowitz spotlights the brainwashed racism white liberals harbor towards black Americans. It is text book bigotry but its “soft” nature escapes scorn from the mainstream:

You’ve probably heard the phrase “soft bigotry of low expectations” before. It’s a way of referring to the well-meaning but ultimately insulting and harmful practice of expecting some person (or group) to be able to accomplish less than what you would expect from anyone else. The phrase was coined by George W. Bush speech writer Michael Gerson but rarely has it come to life so clearly as it does in this clip.


College Students Attack Man’s ‘Make America Great Again’ Hat As ‘Hate Speech’

“You have to take the hat off” commands a female student at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada. ‘You’ve got to take the hat off or I’m going to write to the president of the university…’

The reason given was that the slogan “Make America Great Again” means [to her] “make America all for white people, no immigrants, no people of different sexual orientation”. This bigoted smear is of course supported by nothing in the Donald Trump platform which has no mention of “white people” or anything discriminatory towards any non-traditional sexual orientation whatsoever, and whose only comment on immigration is to curtail illegal immigration and vet immigration from terrorist supporting nations harder. The concept that “Make America Great Again” means to disallow immigration into the country is not only fabricated at the start, but also refuted by the fact that the candidate himself is married to an immigrant. Coincidently, the wearer of the hat in the video is also evidently married to an immigrant, further debunking the specious and bigoted smear that America can only be great without immigrants, which is not something the wearer of the hat or the Candidate the hat supports has ever said or implied. The student said that his marriage to an immigrant “doesn’t mean anything” because she could “have a brother who is gay and not support gay people”, forgetting evidently, that no one chooses their brothers but everyone in Wester civilization (not so in many Islamic countries) chooses their spouse.

The demand that he “HAD to take the hat off” was later revised to a request due to her safety issues, which is exactly the sort of hysterical hypochondria the wearer of the hat was baiting:

The snowflake who threatens to tattle to the president of the university admitted afterward that “He is allowed to wear the hat.” She simply asked him to take it off, she explained, because “a university should be a safe space.” A more committed left-wing campus fascist would claim he has no right to wear it because it’s “hate speech” and would want to see him punished and/or the hat confiscated — as it is at the very end of this clip, when a different student snatches it off his head. The Trumper isn’t an alt-righter either: He’s wearing their tribal symbol (well, that and Pepe) knowing, no doubt, that it will antagonize the progressives around him, which is in keeping with the alt-right’s trollishness. But he doesn’t say anything racist. His only so-called offense is the hat itself. Which, I guess, makes this more of a microcosm of the friction over Trump between the left and right generally. The right enjoys the frisson of political incorrectness in supporting him; the left can’t quite believe anyone could support Trump for non-menacing reasons.





Leftists Blame NRA for Terrorist Murder

In service to increasing government control over personal freedoms via demonizing their opponents, the Left now proclaims that the protection of civil rights is an endorsement of terrorist murder:

This is false. The NRA has not tried to stop weapons from getting in the hands of bloodthirsty terrorist murderers. It has battled attempts to keep firearms from law-abiding citizens.

“It was designed for the United States military to do to enemies of war exactly what it did this morning: kill mass numbers of people with maximum efficiency and ease,” lawyer Josh Koskoff, who’s representing Newtown families in their lawsuit against the gun industry, said Sunday.


The truth about Flint Michigan’s water

Flint Michigan’s water problem is not a Republican scandal. But that doesn’t stop the opportunistic smear artists from claiming otherwise.

What we learned from Hurricane Katrina: No matter what happens, it’s never the governor’s fault. What we’ve learned from the contaminated drinking water in Flint, Mich.: It’s always the governor’s fault.

Flint no longer wanted to get their water from the usual place, switched, and the new source is all kinds of contaminated.

Snyder wasn’t governor when that change started and had no control over the decision, yet the Democrats are calling it a Republican scandal. Why?…

-the Democratic governance in a Democratic city obliterate the cities finances
-the Democratic emergency manager signs off on a consensus plan to use a temporary water source,
-the municipal authorities in this Democratic city fail to do their job of treating and monitoring the drinking water,
-a state agency whose workers work under the SEIU (liberal union) didn’t do their job overseeing local authorities,
-and Barack Obama’s EPA failed to do it’s job

…but it’s Republicans fault.


It’s legit to ask if the truth can survive this “scandal”

This is the kind of complex government scandal where no one looks good. Incompetent local Democrats managed their city into near-bankruptcy. Their Democratic friends in next-door Detroit sucked them dry with water-rate hikes. The decision to change water sources was defensible enough, but then Republican state officials and Democratic federal bureaucrats both failed in their statutory duties to protect the public from its own water supply. RELATED: Political Poison: How Many Flints Before We Learn Our Lesson? But the Left is unmatched in its ability to capitalize on a crisis to call for more money and more control. Writing in the Washington Post, Katrina vanden Heuvel says the real lesson is that government just wasn’t big enough, declaring the crisis “a direct consequence of decades of policies based on the premise that government spending is always a problem and never a solution.” Yet Flint’s extraordinary government spending was the reason for its near-bankruptcy. A more than billion-dollar unfunded pension liability is not a sign of municipal frugality.

The link at the top is worth reading in full, but in closing:

Governor Snyder, of course, does bear some responsibility here and, to his credit, has acknowledged as much. No, no reasonable person expects the governor to show up in Flint with a white glove and personally eyeball what the local water-treatment plant is up to, but the people he appointed did an insufficient job. It is ironic, given the tenor of the denunciations, that Governor Snyder is as guilty of excessive bipartisanship as of any other offense: In his desire to keep Flint under the watch of an emergency manager with whom the locals were comfortable — a Democrat — he may have overlooked better candidates with more thoroughgoing approaches to reform. If you’ve followed Flint’s history of nearly criminal misgovernance, you know that what was needed was more iron fist and less velvet glove.

So while those who fault Governor Snyder are not entirely wrong, what is deeply dishonest is the story put forward by such people as the filmmaker Michael Moore, who enjoys pretending to be from gritty, blue-collar Flint (he actually hails from an affluent suburb nearby), that this is, somehow, the result of the Republican approach to government or conservative governing ideas. That is absurd. Flint is a mess made by Democrats, made worse by the Democrats in Detroit, and ignored by the Democrats in the White House. The worst that can be said of the Republican on the scene is that he failed to save the local Democrats from the worst effects of their own excesses. But that is the Democrats’ approach to calculating the chain of responsibility: Go up the ladder or down, as needed, until a Republican is located, or a private firm, in which case capitalism can be blamed. The Democratic monopolies in Flint, Detroit, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Newark? Somehow, somewhere, there’s a Republican responsible for that, even if he has to be brought in on an overnight flight from Oklahoma. Flint is nothing more than a miniature Detroit.

And Detroit is what Democrats do.


The Desperate Tactics of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Primary

Dick Morris points out that the Clintons deploy the B Team:

The aging and raging ex-president, meanwhile, speaking to a half-filled gym in a New Hampshire school, ranted about Sanders’s “hypocrisy” in condemning his wife’s paid speeches. Sanders, too, has given paid speeches, Bill Clinton claimed.

He’s got a point. In 2013, for example, Sanders made all of $1,500, which he donated to charity as required by federal law. In 2014, he raked in $1,850 for paid speeches. By contrast, Clinton made, and kept, over $21 million during the same time period. Sanders was only reimbursed for coach class airfare, while Clinton demanded private jets. Sanders’s hosts were the TV show “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Avalon Publishing and a machinists union. Clinton’s were Goldman Sachs, the big banks and the pharmaceutical and energy industries. What hypocrisy for Sanders to use that as an issue!

Both Brock and Blumenthal share the former first lady’s enthusiasm for discussing the “vast right-wing conspiracy” in America. Now that they’ve been outed as being back on her team, it’s easy to understand why Clinton sees conspiracies everywhere. This paranoia, egged on by the B Twins, explains her failure to grasp the cataclysmic changes her own misconduct has wrought on her image, to say nothing of the societal and economic tectonic shifts at work. No, it’s all the GOP’s fault.

Blumenthal worked to spin Monica Lewinsky as a crazed stalker of an innocent president, and his hundreds of gossipy emails urged Clinton to do all she could to topple Moammar Gadhafi when she was secretary of State without realizing that it would open the door and let the terrorists waltz in. He hides in the shadows, ducking subpoenas and frantically emailing his crazy self-serving ideas while flattering his way into Clinton’s affections.


Thinking For Yourself is not part of the Leftist Playbook

Leftism uses “diversity” as a club against it’s enemies because it is a much better sounding ideal than the doctrine it is a cover for, which is adherence to absolute conformity to speech and social constructs designed to attack critics and break their power structures. Leftism inherently removes individual thought.

Under the current rules of the progressives’ game, a gay man’s mind — a black man’s mind, an immigrant’s mind, Bruce Jenner’s mind — is not his own. If you are a gay man, you are forbidden from finding your situation “pretty comfortable” and hence believing that it is more important to enact Marco Rubio’s national-security agenda than Hillary Rodham Clinton’s gay-rights agenda, whatever that is this week. That simply is not permitted. The price of enjoying the special status associated with cultural victimhood is mandatory conformity with the self-appointed progressive advocates who tell others what to think about you and tell you what to think about you, too. RELATED: Liberals Now Find Gender Identity Itself Oppressive That is one of the reasons why the Left works so tirelessly to destroy prominent conservatives who are not white men, savaging the likes of Clarence Thomas and Nikki Haley. That is why the success of immigrants from India and Nigeria so scandalizes these so-called progressives: These immigrants aren’t going along with the game, which insists that we pretend that this is an oppressive, abusive, racist society that hates blacks and the foreign-born even as its armed forces salute a black man with a Kenyan father. Amy Chua became a hate totem for suggesting that “tiger moms” see to the success of these communities by declining to coddle their children too much, rejecting the ethos of minority victimhood for the practical proposition that nobody can look down on you if you’re at the top. That kind of thinking, left unchecked, would mean a lot of unemployment among kindergarten diversity officers and media censors tut-tutting about celebrities’ oppressive attitude toward parts of speech.

And that is not how the game is played. One wonders why so many people choose to be pawns in it.
