White girls in Trump gear trigger Howard University students in cafeteria

Rick Moran   "All they wanted was to grab some lunch on their visit to Howard University.  But a couple of young girls on a sightseeing trip to Washington got a lot more than they bargained for when their presence in the cafeteria set off a hysterical reaction.

Needless to say, that attitude was shared by many who felt "threatened" by the little girls.
Howard is a private institution and I've seen folks removed for campus for less. What did campus police do? This is unacceptable. https://t.co/eeiHuQbmyw

Suddenly the anti-Israel bunch is against anti-Semitism?

If anti-free speech demonstrators are going to chant 'never again!'...
"Americans are pouring into the streets to demand we put an end to free speech.  And the usual suspects in the media, academia, political class, and entertainment industry are cheering them on and painting them as heroes.
"Much has been written about this in recent days.  I'd like to focus on one thing in particular, which is that many "counter-protesters" chant and carry signs that read: "Never again!"

"Do these fools have any idea what that refers to beyond using it as a slogan to frame themselves as 21st-century heroes rushing in to save the day?
"I'm guessing they don't.
"But if the anti-free speech hysterics are genuine in their newfound passion for "Never again!" (and of course, they're not, so indulge me my sarcasm), they've got their work cut out for them.
"They could start with a laser focus on the Boycott, Divest, Sanction (BDS) movement.  If they go here, they can check out BDS's latest plans and make sure they show up at events to shut them down.' . . .

Media Shames South Park for Ignoring Trump Jokes

Christian Toto  "South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone won't tar Trump in the show's upcoming season. That made the media very, very angry.
Cartman, Kyle and Kenny, meet Jimmy Fallon.
"The Tonight Show host once treated Donald Trump like a guest on his late night program. Because … that’s what the reality show host was.

"That sent reporters into a tizzy. How dare you normalize Trump, they cried. For weeks the press pounded Fallon for not just that indecency but for the dearth of Trump jokes in his monologues.
"Which is precisely what you see on the majority of late night comedy shows.
"Now, the press is training its guns on Trey Parker and Matt Stone. The duo behind Comedy Central’s long-running South Park incorporated plenty of Trump material in their most recent season.

"That’s partly why they decided to try something different for season 21, coming next month.
"Everyone else is unleashing Trump jokes, Parker and Stone argued. And the President himself is often so over the top it makes satire knottier. So the next batch of South Park episodes will mostly avoid Trump-related humor.
"You might as well whisper, “release the hounds” to the press.

"The Daily Beast attacked first, questioning Parker and Stone for not joining the Trump lynch mob." . . .

Even though this is mostly well-bleeped, language advisory is in order anyway:

Tapper speaks of how Obama got a free pass from the left

Obama never condemned the violence of the Black Lives Matter movement, even when innocent police officers died at their hands, and the media let him get away with that — even though the clearly racist, anti-white nature of some of its most vocal supporters was evident to anyone who followed the news.

Tаppеr Goеs Roguе With Unprеcеdеntеd Stаtеmеnt on Obаmа’s Truе Colors  "CNN anchor Jake Tapper recently went rogue and revealed the truth about former President Barack Obama’s true racist colors, and the left isn’t going to like it one bit. In an interview with Rolling Stone discussing the mainstream media, Tapper exposed the bias of major news outlets, explaining how they let Obama get away with telling lies while they criticize everything President Donald Trump says.

“ 'I don’t want to compare President Obama and President Trump on these issues because they’re different and the scale isn’t even remotely the same,” he said. “But President Obama said things that weren’t true and got away with it more for a variety of reasons, and one (reason) is the media was much more supportive of him.”
"Tapper added that when he was critical of Obama’s administration, a lot of people on the left “didn’t like it,” but that they now like how he is critical of Trump.
“ 'The Obama White House thought I was self-righteous and a huge pain in the a**,” he said.
"While many would still agree with that sentiment, Tapper — for once — touched on an important truth about how the liberal media always turned a blind eye to Obama’s failures." . . .
The source: Tapper's interview with Rolling Stone
There's a perception you've become more radical given your decision to call out Trump's falsehoods, but maybe it's just that people are simply more aware of it now.A lot of people on the left didn't like it before, and now they like it. I don't want to compare President Obama and President Trump on these issues because they're different and the scale isn't even remotely the same. But President Obama said things that weren't true and got away with it more for a variety of reasons, and one is the media was much more supportive of him. The Obama White House thought I was self-righteous and a huge pain in the ass.

BOOM! Bill Clinton’s Accusers Want His South Dakota Statue Taken Down: “Take a Sledgehammer to It”

The Gateway Pundit  "Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey, two women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting them are demanding his statue in South Dakota be destroyed.
Juanita Broaddrick was very vocal about her disapproval of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election. She hasn’t relented and now she is saying she would like to personally use a “sledgehammer” to destroy Bill Clinton’s statue.

"Fox News reports:
Two women who accused former President Bill Clinton of sexually assaulting them said it is time for his South Dakota statue to be destroyed.
In the wake of factions calling for the destruction of Confederate statues following violence in Charlottesville, Va., accusers Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey see Clinton as just as oppressive.
Broaddrick, 74, told the American Mirror that Clinton’s statue in Rapid City is a symbol of an “abhorrent and morally deficient” president.
She said Clinton raped her inside a Little Rock, Ark. hotel in 1978.

And Yet President Trump, in His Classically Inartful Way, Was Absolutely Right

Donald Trump an anti-Semite? Really? His daughter Ivanka is an Orthodox Jew. She observes the Sabbath on Friday night and Saturday, maintains a kosher home, apparently does not even take phone calls on the Jewish Sabbath. . .
American Spectator
Watch him say what he said, not what others said he said.
"I just did something fascinating. I just watched the President’s entire 14-minute impromptu news conference at Trump Tower on Monday that sparked all the latest barrage of anti-Trump screeds from the left media that will criticize him every day, no matter what he does, augmented by the “Never Trump” Republicans and neo-conservatives who will not rest until they can re-conquer the political party they lost because of three terms of two failed Bush presidencies, followed by the two failed Presidential candidacies of Sen. John McCain and of Gov. Mitt Romney.

"Not the reportage about the conference, but the entire 14 minutes unedited, uninterrupted. I found myself agreeing with his every word. I did not find his tone or demeanor “unpresidential” in the least. He sharply and explicitly condemned the Nazis and White Supremacists unequivocally. He also condemned the extreme leftists who premeditatedly came armed with weapons to smash up a demonstration that, rightly or wrongly, had been granted a legal permit. (I personally wish that ACLU liberals were not so proactive in advancing the right of Nazis to get permits to rally at public venues, but the demonstration had a permit. Meanwhile, the Antifa Alt-Left thugs came with flame-throwers, bats, and shields, and they came to fight.) All the while, the police did nothing for much too long. Chaos and violence ensued."

Confederate Civil War re-enactors pepper sprayed during North Carolina parade

Legal Insurrection


"The scorched-history tactics of American press and progressive social justice warriors, which were in full display this past week, may have inspired the pepper-spraying of of Confederate re-enactors who were marching in a North Carolina parade.
Police arrested a man after Confederate veteran re-enactors were pepper sprayed during the 2017 Soldiers Reunion parade in Newton on Thursday.
Two victims were treated at the scene for pepper spray exposure and released, Newton police said.
Police arrested Karl Smith, 56, of Morganton and charged him with two counts of misdemeanor assault. He was released by a magistrate on a written promise to appear in court.
"The group of re-enactors regularly appears in the annual parade.
According to a police report, Smith sprayed the re-enactors when they stopped to fire their weapons.
Two parade participants notified officials around 5.30pm about Smith’s actions.
Police seized a small canister of pepper spray and a loaded .38-caliber revolver for which Smith had a valid concealed-weapon permit.
"It appears that Smith wasn’t the only person protesting, though he was the only one to attack the Confederate actors. Another, and unrelated activist, used Chalottesville as a springboard for his small demonstration." . . .

Todd Starnes on the left-wing call to action against Christians and Conservatives


CNN Publishes Fake Hate List – Targeting Well-Known Christian Groups
"Many Christian organizations are fearful for their safety after CNN published a bogus “hate map” concocted by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“ 'Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” CNN’s headline declared.

"The list included among others American Family Association, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel and Pacific Justice Institute.

"American Family Association blasted the CNN story calling it a “sham news article that could easily incite violence and place AFA employees and supporters in harm’s way.”

"Liberty Counsel President Mat Staver demanded an immediate retraction – calling CNN’s report “false, defamatory and dangerous.”

“ 'Liberty Counsel is not a hate group,” he said. “The false ‘hate’ label is very damaging to our reputation and is a safety risk to our staff. Liberty Counsel is a Christian ministry, and hates no one.”

"Conservatives and Christians have good reason to be worried.

"In 2012, Floyd Lee Corkins opened fire inside Family Research Council headquarters in Washington,  D.C. A security guard was shot and wounded.

"The domestic terrorist told police he wanted to kill as many employees as possible to intimidate opponents of same-sex marriage. Corkins brought along Chick-fil-A sandwiches, which he intended to smear on the faces of dead staffers." . . .

Antifa Protester Yvette Felarca Says Violence Against The Far-Right Is ‘Not A Crime’

Limbaugh: ‘We Are on the CUSP of a Second CIVIL WAR’

Socio-Political Commentary...

 "Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):"

America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun. However you characterize it, though, we are under attack from within. And it’s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.
I’m thinking of people like George Soros and any other number of international financiers whose objective it is to take the United States out and down as a superpower, to literally erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation.
Now, folks, in order to defend America, which I believe is incumbent upon all of us, in order to defend America, you have to begin knowing our history. If you’re gonna defend the United States of America, you have to know our history. You have to know the purpose of the United States of America. You have to know unequivocally and proudly the United States’ place in history. And that is why erasing and distorting our history is crucial for the left to succeed.
None of this that is happening on the left is random. None of the riots, none of the protests. They are not the result of the left being offended by individual acts. Antifa didn’t show up in Charlottesville because they found out something was going to happen that offended them. They showed up in Charlottesville to create mayhem and cause hell. They showed up in Ferguson, Missouri, to do the same thing.
They showed up in Baltimore to do the same thing — and wherever they show up today and tomorrow and next week, it’s by design, on purpose, has an objective and an agenda. And that agenda is to erase American history. That agenda is to distort, erase, and impugn our history. It is crucial if they are to succeed. Because, you see, if enough Americans can be persuaded that America, as founded, is unjust — if enough Americans can be persuaded that America as founded is inherently racist and immoral and illegitimate — then it will be all that much easier to erase America as founded."

Civil War Breaking Out at Fox News

It is even causing tears among on-air hosts.

Peter Barry Chowka  "An internal civil war is tearing at the fabric of Fox News. The events of the past week have brought the long-simmering conflict closer to the surface. The legitimacy and viability of President Trump are under constant assault in the mainstream media as never before – and that is saying something. Fox News Channel executives, staff, and on air talent are taking sides. The future direction of the right-of-center, fair and balanced Fox News approach to presenting the news may well be in serious doubt."
. . . 
"Most mainstream news organizations are siding with the left-wing narrative and blaming President Trump for his unconventional reaction to the events at Charlottesville. They are also largely absolving the anarchist and Antifa participants of any responsibility for the violence that took place.
"Fox News still has its defenders of Trump. But they are increasingly being outnumbered by other hosts, contributors, and guests on the channel. Newsweek, an anti-Trump publication, put it this way in its August 17 story “Fox News Can’t Stop Literally Crying About Donald Trump’s Worst Week Yet:' ”
"On Thursday, August 17, during a live discussion of the Charlottesville rally five days earlier, Fox News anchor and host Melissa Francis, according to Newsweek, was having a hard time:"

“ 'I am so uncomfortable having this conversation,” Francis said, bursting into tears. “I know what’s in my heart, and I know that I don’t think anyone is different, better or worse based on the color of their skin. But I feel like there is nothing any of us can say right now without being judged.' ”

"The tears arrived after Francis’s fellow anchors, Juan Williams and Marie Harf [Harf is in fact a contributor, not an anchor], both rejected her support for the president’s statements[.] . . Francis was then comforted by Harris Faulkner, a black female anchor for the network’s show Outnumbered, who said “there have been a lot of tears on our network, and across the country and around the world.' ”
However, with the growing influence on Fox News of the liberal Murdoch Boys, and their equally left-leaning wives, it is unclear how long the new execs at 21st Century Fox will tolerate Hannity – and Tucker Carlson – in prime time. If President Trump’s popularity continues to decline and if the Deep State’s moves to impeach the president succeed in gaining momentum, all bets are off.

Dems rallying to support Missouri state senator who tweeted ‘I hope Trump is assassinated’

Thomas Lifson  "I think that it is time that we had a national conversation on political violence and its advocacy, and I thank the Democrats of Missouri for giving us that opportunity. 
"You may already know about Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal, who tweeted, “I hope Trump is assassinated.”
"She quickly deleted it, but there were already screen grabs:
In another exchange of venom, she tweets this to the state governor, but language advisory!
You don't know shit bc you never communicate. FUCK you, Governor!
The silliness of our culture is made manifest in the leaders we choose, TD
"She even has an online group of supporters, “I stand with Maria,” complete with logo and charming picture."
. . . "We have a procedure for handling accused miscreant lawmakers, and it is called impeachment. If Senator Chappelle-Nadal stands firm, the constitutional process of the Great State of Missouri can unfold beforem our eyes in all its majesty and gravity.   She will stand trial and have a chance to defend herself, as her suppoprters surely would prefer.  The Missouri State Senate can justify the title of “deliberative body” if it openly considers the legitimacy of her expression and goes on the record as to what it will tolerate. It could be quite illuminating for the nation for Democrats and Republicans to take a position on their standards for impeachment."
