We just had this election and the new President took over and all the stuff hidden from view by ‘mainstream media’ is suddenly front page news with this twist: everything festering for years is now being blamed on Trump after one month in office. Amazing. The left continues to protest everything and censor whatever they can and this is causing people to slowly back off from leftists as they get more and more unpopular.
All the leftists are whining right now. Why do so many voters want a change in direction? This baffles the left totally. The leftists are whining that conservative parties are winning elections in Europe and US:
Befuddled after a year with Donald Trump beating the political odds to take the Oval Office and the Brits voting to split from the European Union, observers seek an explanation for the recent slant towards the extreme right. A post-factual era has been announced. Over night, it seems, large portions of the global electorate lost the capacity to think rationally about politics.
Liberal papers have a terrible case of cognitive dissonance. All the Muslim attacks this last year have been erased. Literally erased: the liberal governments don’t tell anyone who is attacking citizens. They claim, if the Muslims screaming ‘Allah’ are killing you, because they got drunk beforehand, they aren’t Muslims because Muslims don’t drink.
The information that they DO drink just before doing suicide attacks (and drink a lot more than they admit at all other times!) is erased because it forces liberals to think about Muslim terrorists and why inviting them into the country is insane.
From a cognitive science perspective, this hurriedly devised explanation is off target. It rests on the premise that until recently, people derived their attitudes from rational, objective considerations of political facts. That is a myth.
I agree: liberals have beliefs and nothing can budge this even a gun to the head, it seems.
Facts per se have always played a secondary role in politics. When push comes to shove, they lose. Not against emotions. Not against lies. But against so-called frames—deep, cognitive structures that draw on world knowledge to attribute meaning to facts.
Mirrors are useful. I wish liberals could see into the mirror and see what we see. That is, their ugly side, their intolerant side, their ideology wiping out reality whenever there is a clash, an inability to change direction even when someone with a sword is running up screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’
The left is freaking out over this TV interview, they believe people who have other opinions have no right to appear on TV or on campuses: Bill Maher and the gay guy all leftists love to hate, Milo have a nice chat, of all things!
In the end, it was a non-event. Which to some people made it a really big event.
Because Maher was polite, it was a ‘big event’. Good. Maybe the left will learn from this.
Bill Maher’s decision to host controversial blogger Milo Yiannopoulos on “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO Friday led to very few on-air fireworks. Maher talked to his guest mostly about free speech, agreeing with him nearly as much as disagreeing with him and generally affecting a convivial tone.
Yes, this is all about ‘free speech’. Leftists use foul language and talk nasty and scream we must let them do as they please but anyone who politely and in a normal tone, tells them things they don’t want to hear, the left blows up and hits people, burn down buildings, break windows and knock people out after pepper spraying women in the face, etc.
Earlier in the week, Maher’s announcement that he had invited the blogger and author for a top-of-show interview caused the withdrawal of another guest, Jeremy Scahill, a left-wing journalist who founded The Intercept and produced the documentary “Dirty Wars.” Scahill said in a statement that he pulled out because he said the appearance would “provide Yiannopoulos with a large, important platform to openly advocate his racist, anti-immigrant campaign.”
OK, Intercept is now on my ‘KGB Tool’ list. That is, they don’t believe in ‘free speech’ at all, they are nasty people who want to bellow all the time while planning to silence anyone who differs with their crazy positions.
Maher had defended the choice as necessary to bring the blogger’s positions under scrutiny. “If Mr. Yiannopoulos is indeed the monster Scahill claims — and he might be — nothing could serve the liberal cause better than having him exposed on Friday night.”
This is exactly why the left won’t let anyone say anything that differs with their views. They are totalitarians.
On Friday, Maher created an at times challenging but mostly friendly atmosphere for his guest…The pair also found common ground on the controversy surrounding their respective speaking engagements at UC Berkeley and the subject of political correctness. At one point Maher noted “that part of liberalism that has gone off the deep end.”
Note to Hillary voters: the deep end is where you drown. I know that the CIA doesn’t scare you all but it better for it is out to destroy you all! Hillary wasn’t a friend, she was a dangerous enemy, a top Bilderberg gangster who openly said she would say one thing to the left and totally opposite things to rich corporations and foreign governments.
Yiannapoulos is also transphobic, singling out and harassing individual trans students during his controversial college speaking gigs; helped launch a racist online harassment campaign against Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones that got him booted from Twitter; and is an avowed misogynist, penning piece after trolltastic piece for Breitbart—a website which former exec Steve Bannon characterized as “a platform for the alt-right”—mocking feminism, including the piece: ‘Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy.’ His campus speaking gigs have provoked protests, most recently by an outside anarchist group at UC Berkeley that turned violent.
Oh dearie me, he makes fun of leftist gays and other sexual people. He makes fun of HIMSELF, too! This fact eludes leftists who have no mirrors to check to see what they really look like.
Winning hearts and minds is NOT done via screaming at people, burning down public property, raiding banks, attacking citizens with weapons. Hello! This does not work. Flag burning, for example, I argued hard about that during the Vietnam War.
I explained we should honor it MORE than the right not spit on it and burn it. The left didn’t listen to me and did the stupid thing instead and…they lost! They totally lost. Few people liked them or wanted to be around them and didn’t care if these leftists were killed.
Maher had nothing. Instead of pressing Yiannopoulos on his vile treatment of the LGBT community, or his bizarre claim that the “radical gay editorials that are saying interesting things about gays are now being published by Breitbart,” the HBO host instead segued to a topic they both seem to agree on: free speech.
Note this leftist is like all leftists: wants ‘free speech’ but…doesn’t, actually, they hate free speech, they want to make everyone their puppets and have only Pravda news, etc.
“We have both been disbarred at Berkeley,” said Maher, addressing how Yiannopoulos apparently “makes liberals crazy—for that part of liberalism that has gone off the deep-end.”
Anyone who trespasses off the reservation barriers set up by these insane leftists is attacked and prevented from talking in public as much as possible. The far right does the exact same thing, both left and right do this…I hate this, I was involved in the original free speech movement and I know exactly what it is all about.
“You’re literally the only good [liberal],” replied a toadying Yiannopoulos. “Your side has gone insane. The Democrats are the party of Lena Dunham. These people are mental, hideous people. The more that America sees of Lena Dunham, the fewer votes the Democrat Party’s ever going to get.”
By agreeing with Maher, the leftist writer here has to use the word ‘toady’. Typical of a fascist, he is too stupid to know this.
“No, I hurt people for a reason,” replied Yiannopoulos. “For sure. No, I like to think of myself as a virtuous troll.”
This is Milo’s business. He can’t make money unless the left continues being insane, stupid and loud. This makes him stronger and stronger and them weaker and weaker. They can’t figure out this ju-jitsu. If they had any sense or brains, they would leave him totally alone and he would cease being in the news all the time. Duh.
But they cannot. They have to be hysterical, they have to hate all the time. This is destroying them and they can’t figure this out.
Following the news that MILO will deliver the keynote address at this year’s Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) conference, both leftists and establishment conservatives have taken to Twitter to express their outrage.
Matt Schlapp, Chair of the American Conservative Union (ACU), the organizers of CPAC, announced MILO’s speech on Twitter, stating that “free speech includes hearing MILO’s important perspective.”
HAHAHA…the New World Order Bilderberg gang agree with the stupid leftists.
Leftists and establishment conservatives were not happy with the announcement. Conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg, editor of the National Review, an establishment publication that strongly opposed Donald Trump’s campaign for the Republican nomination in 2015 and 2016, said the announcement was “sad and disappointing.”
I hope there is a battle at the CPAC conference. I hope Inforwars is there to televise it, too. That would be roaring good fun to watch. Demolition derby is fun stuff.
