About Me

I am a Brit. I am a working class child of the troubles in Belfast who now lives a life of privilege. I am an anti-racist, progressive monster for truth. If I fail in being that monster, call me out....

Conservative blog slams Evangelicals and Trump apologists better than many Liberals have

Kimberly Ross starts her piece as follows.

Despite all we’ve seen in the past two years, too many on the Right still fail to apply the same standards to their side that they do to their opponents. This is unsurprising, but it should never be tolerated.

I’m of the mindset that we should clean our own political house first and foremost. Addressing that which is closest to you, and seeking to improve it, is of the utmost importance. But apparently, this is wildly unpopular.

She subsequently said that the mindset of the Right Wing Evangelicals and Trump apologists is to own Liberals at all cost, irrespective of the behavior of those they support.

--------------------

Kimberly then goes for the jugular as she referenced Right Wing attacks on Clinton and not Trump.

If you called out Bill Clinton for his behavior and outright lying in the 1990s (and earlier), and don’t bat an eye at this president? Then congratulations, American conservative. You are a hypocrite. A Democrat with a closet full of indiscretions will certainly cause you to spew forth vocal condemnation, but a Republican? Well, either it doesn’t matter because he’s a winner, or his poor, supposedly penitent soul is really like some legitimately remorseful Biblical leader of centuries past. Give me a break. Your double standards are leaking everywhere.

Kimberly Ross closes her piece with a prescient statement.

They prefer to forget the sickness in their own camp, discard the uncomfortable, but necessary, cure, refuse to improve, and spend their time looking toward adversaries, hoping political fatalities occur there first.

Nigerian senator invites Kanye West to visit African slave ports: 'Experience the choices in chains'



“If @kanyewest thinks Slavery was a choice, we will offer him a free ticket & tour guide to visit slave routes and camps in Badagry Lagos, Ouida Benin Republic, Ghana & Goree Island in Senegal to ‘experience the choices in chains’. Kanye defecated on the graves of victims,” Sani tweeted.

In the wake of the mounting uproar, West dialed back his comments just a little.

“[To] make myself clear. Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free will,” West tweeted. “My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved.”

Trump tweets rant against NBC for correcting inaccurate report on Michael Cohen wiretap warrant



President Donald Trump finally smacked NBC News for walking back a report that his attorney Michael Cohen was under a wiretap warrant.

The network and ABC News each issued corrections to reports that Cohen had been wiretapped by the FBI, saying instead that the attorney had instead been subjected to a pen register — which means that his calls were logged in real time.

Lack of moral fibre - not surprising!

Steve Deace: Congressional Freethought Caucus Members Want to "Kill God"

Last week, Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA) announced the formation of a Congressional Freethought Caucus.

Since that announcement, we’ve learned a few more details. Huffman and Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) will co-chair the caucus. Other members include Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-CA), Rep. Dan Kildee (D-MI), and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), who announced her membership on Twitter.

What will the caucus do? We already know their goals:

1) to promote public policy formed on the basis of reason, science, and moral values;

2) to protect the secular character of our government by adhering to the strict Constitutional principle of the separation of church and state;
-----------------
I’ll just quote bits and pieces. They’re not out of context, I assure you.

… there are a few Congressional Democrats yearning to take the total depravity spotlight back.


… [Democrats’] goal is to burn American exceptionalism to the ground.

Hell demands more. Time to think bigger. Time to kill God.

Trump reportedly wants to reduce number of US troops in South Korea



President Donald Trump has requested options for reducing the number of US troops in South Korea, the New York Times reported Thursday, citing several people briefed on the matter.

The President's request of the Defense Department comes ahead of his highly anticipated sit-down with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, expected to take place along the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas.

Facebook Wants To Let The Heritage Foundation Decide What's News



Yesterday, Axios reported that Facebook was reaching out to some groups in an effort to keep the social media giant from hemorrhaging any more trust, by which we mean money. Worried that they might be the catalyst for degrading public discourse, and to make it seem like Mark Zuckerberg actually gives a fuck, Facebook is bringing in a super powerful law firm and … the Heritage Foundation.

Facebook will be holding a conservative-only bias review led by former Arizona Republican Sen. Jon Kyl. Kyl has a famously loose interpretation of “facts,” once questioning the definition of middle class, and walking back lies about Planned Parenthood made on the Senate floor by saying his comment was “not intended to be a factual statement.”

Klon Kitchen, the Heritage Foundation’s resident right-leaning techie, has already been brought in to lecture Facebook on how to make safe spaces for conservatives on the Internet.
