There’s No Such Thing As A Conservative ‘Blue Dog’ Democrat

The real purpose of the Blue Dog Democrats is not to force Democrats to abandon secular liberalism, but to act as the recruiters or handlers of weak Republicans who can be wooed to support liberal policies through claims of bipartisanship or stymie President Trump in acts of virtue signaling.

What will a post-constitutional America look like?

Dr. William Scott Magill, WND

The leftist collective, which demands all residents participate in this national self-destruction, have in a matter of just a few years flipped the narrative of American exceptionalism on its head. The “unacceptable” election of Donald Trump, through the intercession of Divine Providence, saved America from an envisioned police state that would have been the death knell for our once free and open society. Now it comes down to individuals – each one of us. Will you fight the good fight for freedom, or just complain as America is swallowed into the dark and dismal sordid abyss of socialism?

The Origins of Progressive Agony

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The catastrophic yet suicidal loss in the 2016 election and the disappointment over the Obama presidency radicalized Democrats. A combative Trump himself certainly enraged them, on a variety of political, social, and cultural levels. When Democrats lost, they realized that they still lived in a Republic and not a volatile Athenian democracy — and found this also hard to take. More exasperating still was the loss of the Supreme Court, the last bastion of elite brilliance and superior morality that might yet save America from the prejudices and ignorance of the irredeemables, deplorables, clingers, and crazies.

Liberal Americans Hate America First Because They Hate Normal Americans

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

America First is really about putting Americans first, and when is the last time we saw a Democrat do that? Between foreigners and Americans on trade, they side with the foreigners. Between illegal immigrants and American citizens, they side with the illegals. Between anyone else and us, they always side with anyone else. This November, the people of Arizona, and across the country, need to decide whether they want to turn our government over to people who hate us.

Liberals Discover the Dangers of a Powerful Supreme Court

Doug Bandow, The American Spectator

We can only hope that Brett Kavanaugh’s arrival on the Supreme Court will result in the horrors of which the left warns: government as we know it will disappear, people will be free to live their lives as they wish, and impending progressive political triumphs will be thwarted. Unfortunately, the result is likely to be far more equivocal. Nevertheless, for now schadenfreude offers cause for satisfaction: after spending decades promoting government by judiciary, the left has discovered the wonders of democracy. Maybe eventually they will come to appreciate the value of liberty.

Liberalism: An Intrinsically Uncivil Ideology

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Under liberalism, the central question of politics invariably shifts from goodness to power, thus rendering civil discourse an impossibility. Out of such a raw, grabby culture come low demagogues like Holder and Hillary, for whom the ends justify any means. Long before Kanye West entered the Oval Office, civility vanished from it, often at the hands of preening liberals like Clinton and Obama who extolled it the most.

I Left My Shoes In San Francisco

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

What the liberal elite have in mind is no laughing matter. No one has to let people treat our sidewalks like a latrine. That’s a choice, a conscious decision made by the elite in the service of their irrational hatred of the Normal people who refuse to bow down. But we can choose to fight back. November’s coming. Vote Republican, and against people going on the sidewalk. If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some … booties over your shoes, cause you’re gonna meet some grody people there.

I Really Don’t Feel Like Submitting To Socialist Tyranny. Do You?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

The socialists seem to assume that there’s not going to be any pushback from all these millions of Normal Americans who are going to fund this latest socialist experiment (Remember, this time, under these geniuses, socialism will totally work – it’s due for a win!). We’ll sort of shrug and just give up our stuff, and our freedom, to a bunch of 20-something adolescents because…the 20-something adolescents really want us to. Nah.

Comedy Threatens Liberalism So Liberals Want To Kill It

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

It’s important to laugh at liberals, which is why liberals want to stamp out laughter. Laughter is subversive. Back when comedy was funny, before it got woke, the left used to use it to undermine traditional culture. Now that they have the wheel of the cultural car, they are afraid that people pointing and giggling at their hypocrisy, venality, and stupidity will make them lose control and crash. Hence, comedy must die.

New Poll: Conservatives See Democrats Working for Minority Rule Through Supreme Court

An almost unanimous 99% of those responding to a neww FedUp PAC poll say that liberal Democrats “rely on the courts to overrule the majority” of Americans and that they oppose any judge who “would rule impartially according to the Constitution and the laws.”

Reporters Suddenly Hate the Soviets?

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Media figures denounce Trump for calling the media the "enemy of the people." The term certainly has a Soviet echo. That said, conservatives certainly could consider them the enemy. We prefer calling the "objective" media the "opposition party." Considering their shoddy record of offering "resistance" to totalitarian communism, these journalists should really be much quieter and humbler about who's been friendlier to dictators.

Get It Through Your Head That Progressives Hate You

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We need to accept the harsh reality that a substantial number of our fellow citizens hate our guts. All the simpering blabber about civility, all the clichés about unity, are all just comforting lies. A bunch of them hate us. They hate us. Hate. And we need to stop pretending the truth right in front of us is not right in front of us. What do we do? We fight. This is not going to be a single skirmish. This is a campaign, a long and difficult one with the objective of destroying the ideological cancer metastasizing through America’s body politic.

Double Standards Are The Only Standards Liberals Have

Derek Hunter, Townhall

For decades the political left has held conservatives to the highest of standards while exempting themselves, but rarely has it been laid so clear. The party of tolerance hates you if you are conservative, they hate you if you are indifferent, they hate you if you aren’t sufficiently liberal. Quite simply, they just hate you. They hate you because you oppose them and they hate you because you aren’t them. For that, they must be held in contempt, or at least to account.

Are Liberals and Progressives Sabotaging the Economy?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The cries of economic disaster will only grow more intense as we approach the mid-terms. Every little statistical waver will blown way out of a proportion. Schumer and Pelosi will say that bread lines are imminent. Bernie Sanders and his new leftwing friend Ocasio-Cortez will proclaim conditions for the working class are worse than the 1930s when they have never been better. The good news is -- if they fail at this, they will end up with nothing and be flailing for a long time.

It Is the Sacred Duty of All Conservatives to Own the Libs

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

We’ve got to win this fight ourselves, and if you want to carry our banner down the hill in front of our bayonets, you need to be ready to rumble. Donald Trump may have some faults, but he fights for us – and his track record of conservative success dwarfs that of the Team Gimp gang that is still telling us not to be so feisty. Well, we’re feisty all right. We’re cocked and locked and ready to rock. That’s why we’re going to do our duty and keep owning the libs – on Twitter, in the bookstores, and at the ballot box in November.

The Strange Career of White Privilege

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The terms “diversity” and “white privilege” have now been stretched to denote so many things, and yet they encompass so many paradoxes and contradictions, that they have become words that mean nothing much at all. How odd that the current revolutionary mode is to keep these reactionary Byzantine classifications and programs that no longer sync with reality, and to damn as reactionary the truly revolutionary act — which would be to start treating people as unique individuals whose appearance is a secondary consideration.

Why Are Liberals So Violent?

Craig Shirley and Scott Mauer, CNS News

Both individual and state-sponsored terrorism and murder and violence is nothing new, but there’s something to be said when an ideology places the collective over the individual. To place the group before the individual is to deny the humanity of the person, where the means of achieving a “utopia” is justified. Violence, murder, slave labor – all is right in the collectivists’ minds.

It Is Terrible To Be A Liberal In 2018 – Which Is Awesome

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Just look how unhappy the libs are. It’s all outrage, all the time. You can’t be happy if you are constantly agitated. It’s unhealthy. It makes you look like a wacko. Yet they go nuts on social media, they go nuts at awards shows, and they go nuts when conservatives are trying to scarf down some tacos. If you are always going nuts, maybe that’s an indicator that you are nuts.

There’s A Reason Liberals Are Always So Angry

Derek Hunter, Townhall

When you’re angry or when you’re scared you aren’t thinking straight, you’re acting on emotion. That’s the state liberals have been keeping their base in since Donald Trump won the presidency. To one degree or another, modern liberals have always used fear and anger to motivate their voters. After 9/11, Democrats ran on variations of “Republican policies are making us less safe.” With the terror attacks of that September morning still fresh in people’s minds, that was not designed to inspire.

Defeating The Top Five Obnoxious Liberal Argument Cheats

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Liberals don’t argue in good faith because they can’t, and Normal people who don’t argue every day as part of their job often don’t see the argument grifts they are being side-swiped by. Normals are direct and honest folks, and often (though much less frequently than they used to since Normals began to get militant) they labor under the illusion that debates with liberals involve honest exchanges of facts and evidence that can lead people to change their minds. No. Liberal “argument’ is a bludgeon designed to beat you into submission with distraction and deception.
