Don’t underestimate the impact of Kanye West

I usually ignore celebrity endorsements on either side, as they can be fickle or even counterproductive (though I do like to see them pop up for Conservatives, given how nearly all are Leftists).  People like James Woods do a good job of articulating their views.

Kanye West’s meeting with Trump was absolutely golden.  The Left is in full attack mode against Kanye now, launching all sorts of racist attacks.  But as they often do, the Left may go too far.  This draws even more attention to people like West, Jim Brown and Candace Owens, who challenge blacks to get off the “plantation” that the Left has created for them.  I love how he calls out Liberals for their manipulation of blacks.

If people see Trump in a non-bombastic way like in the videos it can also modify their perceptions.  When Kanye said he loved Trump and hugged him it made for great TV.

Democrats take the black vote for granted, which is why they now like illegals better than blacks.  The Left has banked on more than 90% of the black vote for decades, and people like Kanye can chip into that – especially if people can see how quickly the Left turns on him.  So the Left will freak out and attack black leaders who give people hope and acknowledge that Trump’s policies are good for blacks.

The news media AND theologically Liberal “Christian” leaders are to blame for Obama

Everything written in Obama’s Travesty of Leadership: The News Media Shares Culpability applies to the false teachers* who helped Obama get elected twice.  They either knew or should have known what he was really like.  We Bible-believing conservatives knew!

Before he ran for President, Obama’s short careers as a lawyer and politician were studded with events that clearly indicated a weak character that would be dangerous in the presidency: representing Chicago slumlords and getting poor people—African-Americans, no less—thrown into the street in freezing weather, and winning elections via crony David Axelrod’s underhanded means. But the news media widely chose to not publicize those events: chose to instead glamorize Obama. He was from Harvard, brilliant, a gifted communicator, even our savior: hail Obama, minus the stiff-armed salute.

Some indications suggest, and were largely ignored by most major news media companies, that even in high school and undergraduate and graduate school, Obama showed a suspect character. By his own admission, he used drugs every day and skipped class in high school. His supporters, including those working for major news media companies, apparently thought this made him cool.

Since becoming president, Obama’s questionable character has shown itself repeatedly: his “green-energy” program, which looks like a means to repay rich, fat-cat campaign donors; his “fast-and-furious” gun scandal, which apparently entailed illegally selling US guns to Mexican drug dealers so they’d use the guns to kill people and create anti-gun fervor in the US; his continual, and very public, practice of encouraging supporters to aggressively attack those opposing him, so they’d do exactly what his supporters embedded within the IRS have done. Like a common bully, he publicly jeers at and insults his opposition, and his supporters love every word of it. They support him for who and what he is; because he divides rather than unites Americans; because he seeks to publicly humiliate half the US population; because he plays dirty; because he talks a smooth line of bologna.

Throughout all of this, most major news media companies have either remained silent or even defended Obama. Thus encouraged, he became bolder. His character, already weak, folded completely, and his arrogance, which has filtered throughout his administration, has run amok: widespread, unmonitored use of drones for killing . . . some people, we don’t know for sure whom; arming Mexican drug lords; domestic spying and harassment. You name it. He’s even grossly misrepresented his Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, named “Obamacare” erroneously because he neither conceived of nor wrote it. It doesn’t “provide healthcare for 30 millions Americans,” as he’s said. It provides health insurance, and the two are usually opposed to each other; health insurers work to minimize costs by minimizing and/or denying care. The federal government, already deeply into the healthcare business, is now in the health insurance business as well, and our beloved, trustworthy IRS is in charge.

The race card gone wild

Abortion is one area where the Left is oddly quiet about playing the race card.  Perhaps that is because abortions kill unwanted black human beings at a rate three times that of whites and Hispanics at a rate double that of whites, and the Leftist dream of taxpayer-funded abortions would take those rates even higher.

That is, they were quiet about it until now.  In a climate where even saying the word “Chicago” is considered racist, Banning Abortion is Now, Apparently, Racism.  You just can’t make these things up.

Right. You caught us, Brian. That’s exactly what the GOP is attempting to do, to make sure there are more Black, Latino, and other minority children not being aborted so that the country will have more Black, Latino, and other minorities because we hate Blacks, Latinos, and other minorities. I find myself rubbing my forehead after writing that, considering what Liberals feel are their deep policy positions.

If anything, pushing for more abortion on demand is racist. Consider that the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger was an avowed racist pushing eugenics to reduce the population of Blacks, other minorities, and “defectives.” She spoke in front of the KKK.

So in a Liberal Logic 101 way, remember this:

  • Saying “Chicago” is a code word for racism when used to describe the President’s politics.
  • Having a #1 priority that results in blacks being killed at three times the rate of whites is not racist.  But opposing it is!

If the Tea Party events were allegedly racist . . .

What does that make the Occupy Wall Street events?  Via Actual Headline: Little diversity among ‘Occupy Chicago’ protesters:

Just a reminder, this is what OWS own study showed:

81.3% are white and just 1.3% are black. By comparison whites make up just 66% of the US population and blacks make up 12.4%.

Yep, the % of blacks at the OWS rallies are 1/10 the rate of those in the general population.

But of course, Tea Party candidates are the real racists, and they hide that by strongly supporting Herman Cain.

Queue the crickets on the impact of the overturned gun control laws

Don’t miss both important lessons here:

1. Contrary to predictions by gun control proponents, overturning gun control laws caused crime to plummet.

2. If you only consume mainstream media, you wouldn’t know that.  And that should bother anyone with intellectual integrity.  Do not pretend to be fully informed if you aren’t consuming conservative media along with your liberal media.

Via Media Silence Is Deafening About Important Gun News:

Murder and violent crime rates were supposed to soar after the Supreme Court struck down gun control laws in Chicago and Washington, D.C.

Politicians predicted disaster. “More handguns in the District of Columbia will only lead to more handgun violence,” Washington’s Mayor Adrian Fenty warned the day the court made its decision.

Chicago’s Mayor Daley predicted that we would “go back to the Old West, you have a gun and I have a gun and we’ll settle it in the streets . . . .”

The New York Times even editorialized this month about the Supreme Court’s “unwise” decision that there is a right for people “to keep guns in the home.”

But Armageddon never happened. Newly released data for Chicago shows that, as in Washington, murder and gun crime rates didn’t rise after the bans were eliminated — they plummeted. They have fallen much more than the national crime rate.

Not surprisingly, the national media have been completely silent about this news.

One can only imagine the coverage if crime rates had risen. In the first six months of this year, there were 14% fewer murders in Chicago compared to the first six months of last year – back when owning handguns was illegal. It was the largest drop in Chicago’s murder rate since the handgun ban went into effect in 1982.

 

Shocking!

See OJ Simpson Finally Confesses to Murder.

“‘He told the producer: “Tell Oprah that yes, I did it. I killed Nicole, but it was in self-defence. She pulled a knife on me and I had to defend myself”,’ the insider was quoted as saying.”

. . .

Is there anyone except the 12 morons who were on the original jury that is surprised by this revelation?

Of course it was self-defense! That’s why he went to his “attacker’s” home wearing gloves and carrying a big knife. He had to defend himself!

One of the more egregious side issues of the OJ case was how groups like NOW, the National Organization of (unaborted) Women, rushed to OJ’s defense.  Uh, what about that pesky domestic abuse issue, folks?  That so disturbed Tammy Bruce that she quit NOW (I think she was head of the California chapter at the time) and began to oppose them.
