Universal Studio Pulls Ads For Upcoming Violent Fantasy of Liberal Elites Stalking Deplorables For Sport

It seems our woke moral betters in Hollywood, you know the ones, the grossly hypocritical movie makers and environmental frauds who shell out movie after movie of gratuitous violence and all the while preaching gun control, have according to the Hollywood Reporter, untimely chosen to combine their smug Hollywood hypocrisy with their sadistic daydreams brought on by their Trump Derangement Syndrome into a feature film for the masses, called "The Hunt." Untimely indeed!
"Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?" one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Studio Picture set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: "At least The Hunt's coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables." 
The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals. It features guns blazing along with other ultra-violent killings as the elites pick off their prey. 
The script for 'The Hunt' features the red-state characters wearing trucker hats and cowboy shirts, with one bragging about owning seven guns because it's his constitutional right. The blue-state characters — some equally adept with firearms — explain that they picked their targets because they expressed anti-choice positions or used the N-word on Twitter. "War is war," says one character after shoving a stiletto heel through the eye of a denim-clad hillbilly. 
Over the weekend, ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared. A major ad blitz on television and the web had been planned for the beginning of September, says one insider. A trailer is already online. (video below) 
"Employees in different departments were questioning the wisdom of making such a movie in these times," says one filmmaker with ties to Universal. A high-level insider says top executives want to stand by Blum, one of the studio's most prolific and successful producers, as well as filmmaker Craig Zobel, and see the project as a satire addressing an issue of great social importance."

Of Great Social Importance????  I hope they just flushed 18 Million down the sewer....

US Rep. Nydia Velazquez "You're right to be afraid of us."

Rep. Nydia Margarita Velázquez Serrano (D-NY) 

Adults threatening teenagers for their politics made its way into the Overton Window weeks ago. Now we have elected officials telling citizens they are “right to be afraid” of them.

I doubt very serious this Velazquez witch (who's in her 13th term) would have responded to Pearson in this manner if she didn't know he had a public presence of some kind. With the kind of vitriol we've been hearing from Hispanic elected officials because of their growing political power and population numbers, along with their not so veiled threats of the coming "Latino Supremacy", threatening verbiage toward a verbose teenager with the last name Pearson, a black teenager at that, isn't something that comes as a surprise to me at all.

Just as other democrats have done in the past, the growing Hispanic groups of elected officials will see the 'gimme somethin' liberal blacks the same, just whiny minorities and not allies, but just useful idiots good for a vote. Power to The Correct People.......

West Hollywood Politburo Wants Star of Fame Terminated

When there were calls for the removal of Bill Cosby's star from the Hollywood walk of fame amid multiple sexual assault claims leveled against the comedian, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said it did not remove stars over backlash and cited historical landmark status.

But The West Hollywood City Council will vote Monday night on a resolution urging the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to permanently remove Donald Trump’s walk of fame star. Why?
"The City Council will consider adopting a resolution urging the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove President Donald J. Trump’s star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, due to his disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country," reads the agenda item for the Monday meeting."
Shared values of the City of West Hollywood?!! Now that's funny to anyone who has ever been to West Hollywood. This is understandable I guess. In a city of full of weirdos, perverts and the queerest place outside of Frisco and hard to tell who is really a man or a woman, it seems they're okay with one of their own like Bill Cosby drugging and rapping women  .

The People's Blows Against the Empire!

But Donald Trump. The Donald Trump these same people once clambered to have their picture taken with and dropped his named at the blink of an eye? OH NO!
"The resolution lists numerous reasons for the matter, including the separation of children from their parents at the border, the denial of the impacts from climate change on the world, Trump's treatment of transgendered individuals."
What a Monster we have been saddled with!!! 
DJT's marker, which was unveiled in 2007, has been vandalized numerous times and completely destroyed twice to date by childish leftist. Power To The Correct People!!!

Reverse Funnels of Death!

I'm continually amazed at elitist media people, especially the ones who by the things they say reveal to us they rarely leave their high-rises and concrete jungles and can say the most ignorant things while explaining things to other ignorant people.

Thursday's shooting at a Maryland newspaper involved a 12-gauge shotgun. I'm sure this was very disappointing to ghoulish liberals who were probably hoping the victims were gunned down with an "AR-47" so as to help push their efforts to ban all semi-auto firearms. Shotguns are generally pump-action and liberals, who know only of them from movies where they are used to blow out entire walls or making cars explode, have yet to pounce on these weapons. But according to NBC News, shotguns are 'reverse funnels of death' that require no skill to use, so obviously they will have to go.

Here’s dumb tweet, not-so-coincidentally enough from an MSNBC news critter:

Pete went on the air with it:
“A shotgun, uh, uh, you know, if you’re not familiar with a shotgun, it sets out a spray of pellets and because a bullet simply goes in a straight line and shotgun is sort of like a backwards funnel, it spreads it out so that you don’t have to aim very precisely....It can do a lot of damage to the people that you aim it at, but you don’t fire a lot of rounds with a shotgun, so I think that has something to do with it.....”
It should be noted that Pete Williams is NBC Supreme Court correspondent and not their resident gun expert, though you probably figured that out just from the tweet.  The narrative they are trying to push is that shotguns are so easy to use that people can just aim them in any direction and kill lots of people. This is of course pure BS, but it’s not like the news media has ever gotten anything right about guns.

As someone who owns and occasionally uses shotguns to murder clay pigeons, I can tell you that aiming them is important if you are interested in hitting a target. There are obviously different types of chokes you can use to create a wider spread, but you still have to be on target or it doesn’t matter. In the case of a common 12-gauge, just the sight of one would probably scare the hell out of your average northeastern latte drinking liberal newsroom population.

The point is, shotguns aren’t “idiot-proof” killing machines.  The media says gun-grabbers only want to get rid of  'Assault Weapons" because they are designed to kill as many people as fast as possible ....they look really scary, but they have no problem with shotguns. But now a shotgun was used in a mass shooting so those innocuous weapons are now reverse funnels of death.  But don’t worry, they don’t have a problem with revolvers. That is until one is used in a shooting and then revolvers will become “rotating cylinders of murder”.

It's Getting More and More Difficult To Tell a University From An Insane Asylum

First Amendment Rights a State Tactic to Preserve
White Supremacy Over Feelings

With the election of Barky Obama, minorities in America came to falsely believe they were finally running things in America. With the election of Donald Trump, they now believe America has taken a step back into the 19th century. Denial of free speech to anyone who disagrees with them somehow seems right. But as we have seen, as more minorities combine into a majority, they themselves are taking on the the very cloak and mindset of oppression.

America, and all it stands for is under attack by the least oppressed people in the world. Whites are being taught to be self loathing and join with people who can only identify themselves by their sexual orientation, ethnicity or skin color. Feeling over Freedom and the Law. Classic Western Liberalism that has freed Millions is under attack. Modern Progressivism is on the verge of becoming Regressive-ism. Case in point:

A rambling screed posted to the Daily Californian by a UC Berkeley student on Monday declared that the First Amendment right to free speech is nothing more than a tactic used by the state to preserve white supremacy. What should matter more, argued Juniperangelica Xiomara Cordova-Goff, a student senator at UC Berkeley, are the feelings of so-called marginalized students. (by marginalized he she means non-whites)
"I am over the debate on this campus between UC Berkeley conservatives and those on the left who still have energy to argue. Free speech has always been a tactic used by the state to grant the illusion that all voices in this nation are valued, yet there is a reason why Black female senators are discredited and why there is a white supremacist in the Oval Office. Somewhere in all our political discourse, we lost the point. We forgot that the people, the victims, the survivors of state violence we casually discuss are people living the experiences we have the privilege of discussing from a theoretical, omniscient perspective."

"On the morning students woke up to Sproul Plaza flooded with fully armed police officers last Thursday, I was shocked and traumatized. I want to say that I do not feel safe on this campus. Living on the streets for six years did not prepare me for the violence of UC Berkeley. We cannot let free speech become a tactic that asks oppressed people to tolerate their oppressors in hopes of peaceful compromise. I guess I am just at the point where I’ve studied the genocide of my people and am tired of living it today. I do not understand how we can fill the streets demanding justice and then magically separate ourselves from the movement to protect conservative voices who want a soapbox and our death certificates. This has done nothing more than maintain the white supremacist, capitalistic and patriarchal nature that allowed colonizers to protect their power centuries ago and that has allowed their descendants to elect an openly racist, queerphobic, Islamophobic/xenophobic and anti-poverty adminstration"
"I’m not here for free speech. I’m here for Black lives. I’m here for undocumented lives, queer and trans lives, femme lives, incarcerated lives and poor lives. I am here for the lives Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter want dead. I am here for the lives Donald Trump wants to ban. I am here for the lives BCR cannot fit in their “socially moderate, fiscally conservative”fantasy." 
I hope you are as enlighten as I am to know a confused nose-ring, dress wearing bearded Mexican man who thinks he's a woman straighten out the hard working tax paying American about their awful right to free speech they have fought and died to protect is used to degrade them as White Supremacist!  The writer is very ignorant of recent history to think that this article would not be censored and banned in many places if it weren't for the strong tradition of free speech and the legal protections for free speech - which she is trying to destroy.

Oh delicate children, we of the real world urge you to stay in school and get a whole bunch of degrees because life outside those ivory tower walls is a F**KING CONTACT SPORT, KIDDIES. 

Three words Mr. Ms.  Juniperangelica Xiomara Cordova-Goff: Mental Health Expert!

This Isn’t Even Normal Gun-Grabber Ignorance

I have no idea what to make of this. The Huffington Post is arguing that Americans have no legal right to shoot a violent attacker because it violates the criminal's right to a fair trial. I feel confident in saying this is by far the dumbest attempt to subvert our gun ownership rights ever and that’s saying a lot considering how insanely stupid gun grabbers are.
Justin Curmi is a dyslexic guy with a degree in philosophy. According to his bio he is, “A blogger that seeks to engage people in thought and conversation through presenting new views to matters, new or old.” Writing for The HuffPo, he presented one hell of a view concerning our right to not be murdered by a maniac killer.
Oddly enough, this thing starts out very un-HuffPosty by acknowledging that the 2nd Amendment does protect private gun ownership:
"The Second Amendment is highly contested. There is no doubt that people do have the right to carry and have a stockpile of guns (“the right of the people to keep and bear arms”) and a state has the right to organize a well-regulated Militia. But, the main issue is on the right to self-defend with a firearm."
It’s still worded sarcastically, but that does seem like the author reluctantly agrees with the people’s right to keep and bear arms. Now here is where things become unhinged:
"The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights."
And if you thought that was idiotic, check out the other reasons why the author thinks we can’t use guns in self-defense: - READ MORE

But It Has Nothing To Do With Politics at All........

School Bans Golf Team From Playing On Trump Course

DownTrend - Claiming it’s not political at all, Barry University banned its gold team from practicing at the Trump Doral golf course because they don’t like Donald Trump.

The Florida school – that has one of the best golf programs in the country – officially put any Trump property on its “blacklist,” after the school's president said Trump's rhetoric was “inconsistent” with the school's values. According to several individuals affiliated with the university who spoke with Campus Reform on condition of anonymity, the men's golf team—which won national championships in 2007, 2013, and 2014—had previously been allowed to practice, free of charge, at the high-quality Trump Doral course three to four times per year.

Late last year, Barry University President Sister Linda Bevilacqua, in consultation with the Executive Committee of the Administration, determined that Trump's campaign rhetoric conflicts with the university's mission, triggering an automatic severing of relations with all businesses and organizations in which he holds a senior leadership position.

Vice President for Institutional Advancement and External Affairs Sara Herald:
“As a practice, Barry University does not engage in business relationships where senior leadership of a company takes a public position, or the company's guiding principles are, antithetical to the university's core commitments of Inclusive Community and/or Social Justice.  This practice, which has been in place for some time, is not political, as we do not take positions relative to candidates. We seek only to ensure fulfillment of our values through our institutional business related ventures and expenditures.” - READ MORE 
But in 2014, an Imam was invited to campus for an “Interfaith” prayer service on Sept. 11 and led students in a chant of “Allah Akbar.” Bevilacqua acknowledged that the phrase has been co-opted by extremists, yet defended its usage as “fitting” for the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11. 

So inviting a high adherent of islam who's allowed to chant “Allah Akbar, believes in killing non-adherents of their cult, throwing gays off buildings and strapping suicide belts on their own children is somehow not antithetical to the university's core commitments of Inclusive Community and/or Social Justice??? 

Yet, Sister Che Bevilacqua doesn't believe in allowing her team to practice on Trump golf courses, free of charge on The Donald's dime......but it has nothing to do with politics at all.

#PissForEquality: Feminists Fall for Hoax Campaign

  PEE On Thyself In Protest:

Feminists have fallen for another hoax campaign, this one encouraging them to pee on themselves in the name of equality. It's known by the hilarious twitter hashtag #PissForEquality. The troll hoax was created by the notorious basement dwellers at the website 4chan. On October 2, one 4chan member wrote: 
What if we somehow get Tumblr tards to publicly piss or shit their pants in the name of Equality?'”

 And it wasn’t long before the feminists fell for it:  

More Loony Feminists Here

This is by no means the first time that feminists have openly embraced something that was originally created by 4chan to make fun of them.  The “free bleeding” movement, in which feminists post pictures of themselves showing menstrual blood running down their legs in order to draw attention to ‘period shaming’ was another troll campaign contrived by 4chan.

3rd wave feminism has become synonymous with outlandish preoccupations like manspreading, trigger warnings, safe spaces, slut walks and free bleeding, while genuine threats to women’s rights in Islamic countries continue to be ignored.

PC Wingnuts Attempt to Outdo Themselves...

Liberal Group Wants Mothers Called ‘Birthing Individuals’ to Avoid Offending TRANSGENDERED PEOPLE

Yes, you read that right. Reminds me of the old Marie Muldaur Song "Dig a Hole, Dig a Hole".  Keep it up people, keep it up. The backlash is a comin'.
The politically correct speech police are at it again and this time it involves the progressive idea that using the term “women” when relating it to motherhood is offensive.
Nope. “Women” is out. Now, liberals want everyone use other terms instead: 
The Midwives Alliance of North America (MANA) conducted a politically correct purge of their guidelines, removing any reference to fact that mothers are women, for fear of offending the transgendered. But now, an alliance of midwifes, mothers and experts have began to fight back, insisting that it is “dangerous” and “harmful” to deny the “biological reality” of motherhood. 
In 2014, with little consultation, MANA decided that being a woman was not a necessary or relevant factor for being a mother. They edited their core competencies document, and in effect ordered practitioners to stop referring to clients as “women” and “mothers” demanding they say “pregnant people” and “birthing individuals” instead. 
Sure, deny the fact that only women can be mothers or give birth to children. But conservatives are the “science-deniers.” 
Come to think of it, this could open up a whole new category of greeting card for Mom's and Dads Day.  Just image the possibilities for "Happy Birthing Individual Day" and for Dads, "Happy Birthing Individual's Sex Partner Day"!

Former Carter Staffer: “SHOOT REPUBLICANS”

Roland Vincent is a self proclaimed atheist, vegan, attorney, historian, Socialist, former Los Angeles City Commissioner, political strategist and former Jimmy Carter campaign staffer, as well as member of Alabama Governor George Wallace’s staff.....and  Dodgers fan. This all equals up to a nutty leftest animal rights activist and anti-second amendment advocate who wants to shoot people. I swear, the left gets nuttier by the day......

Progtards Today
“Republicans and conservatives are the enemy. They are expendable. They will be targets in the Revolution when it comes” writes Roland Windsor Vincent, in a recent post on his blog, Armory Of The Revolution.
The entry, entitled “Protect Animals And The Environment. Shoot Republicans, centers around animal rights and how “active Republican and conservatives voters are enabling the Animal Holocaust” and “If we were to start shooting Republicans, we would likely not harm a single friend of animals or the environment.”
His article ends with: 
I mention Republicans and conservatives, but the enemy is all in the human race who do not care. In my view, the animals need a massive depopulation of the human race. It may come in revolution, in climate disasters, in pandemics. But it must come."
Mr. Roland Vincent is also a contributor to the Granville Post. In a recent article he wrote on that site, he calls for repealing the 2nd Amendment, while also claiming that he enjoys skeet shooting.
"At the time, muskets were all the governments had to use against the people, and the people having muskets also seemed like a good idea at the time.  So the Second Amendment has outlived its purpose.
The Second Amendment is nothing more than a myth.
A fund-raising tool for the Right.
An excuse for gun manufacturers to profit from the killing of people and animals.
A talking point for Conservatives.
 And a safe harbor for criminals, psychopaths, and the delusional rednecks who pretend they are soldiers on the weekends.
It’s time to repeal the Second Amendment."
How he plans on “shooting Republicans” without guns is beyond me, or maybe he just wants the law-abiding disarmed, so his fellow marxist revolutionaries can take them out with illegally acquired firearms. 
The Crazy Train whistle echoes in the still of the night.......

Judge Orders Cancellation of Redskins Trademark

Political Correctness Marches On

The Federal Government has now positioned itself for regulating whose speech is acceptable and whose isn’t. 

Fox DC
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- For the first time in a legal battle that has stretched over 20 years, a federal judge on Wednesday ordered the cancellation of the Washington Redskins' trademark registration, ruling that the team name may be disparaging to Native Americans.
The ruling does not bar the team from using the Redskins name if it wishes. The team could even still sue for trademark infringement, but winning such a case could prove more complex without the legal protections that come with a federally registered trademark.
Redskins President Bruce Allen said the team will appeal.
"We are convinced that we will win because the facts and the law are on the side of our franchise that has proudly used the name Redskins for more than 80 years," Allen said in a statement.
U.S. District Judge Gerald Bruce Lee's ruling upholds an earlier finding by an administrative appeal board and orders the federal Patent and Trademark Office to cancel the registration. A group of Native American activists first challenged the trademark registration in 1992, and various administrative boards have ruled against the team before. But Wednesday's order is the first time that a federal judge ruled against the team and found that the name may be disparaging.

His Opinion Isn't Valid Because He's White and Rich

One of MSNBC's in-house progtards, the lovely Alex Wagner, along with her three liberal guests, ripped Jerry Seinfeld on her MSNBC program for his blast at "creepy" political correctness. Wagner hinted that Seinfeld had "fallen behind the times."  

That was the que that it was off to the races (pun intended):
New York magazine's Annie Lowrey mocked his critique: "I kind of roll my eyes at Jerry Seinfeld. You know, he's a billionaire – like I don't feel sorry for him if people don't laugh hard enough at his jokes.. So, you know, I really think that – that PC culture owes a lot to social media, where, all of a sudden, people – in this case, college kids – can say – hey! You know, I was a young gay person – and I constantly had to hear jokes like this, and it's really not cool.  
Bloomberg Politics's Dave Weigel remarked: "no one wants to think they've stopped being cool or they stopped being relevant – or especially, that they – that they're now a bigot because they believe something they've always believed. There is no down side; there is no social pressure backlash for Jerry Seinfeld here. He still has all of his cars – the gigantic fleet of cars. "I think he's made $820 million in his career. So,the exile will be comfortable."  
MSNBC's Dorian Warren attacked the comedian:  "I think it's so cheap and easy to be able to insult people who are socially're afraid to be criticized, because you can't come up with funny jokes that don't insult people."  (News Busters)
But when it comes to political correctness, as in talking about race, only whites are the holy grail of fodder. Anyone who is unfortunate to land on a black television network comedy show will regularly hear routines about Crazy White people,  like this.....

Eco-Insanity: Climate Change Is Causing Child Marriage

Progs Today

The extraordinarily, catastrophic claims of those who worship at the altar of Climate Change become more and more drastic everyday. From causing hurricanes, to the melting of the polar ice caps, even to the extent where the President of the United States claims that Climate Change is a threat to National Security, it is almost as if each person screaming the latest Climate Change doomsday prediction is trying to outdo the last.

But just when you thought the insanity of the Climate Change church couldn’t become anymore outrages, suddenly, it does.

Heather Barr, The Senior Researcher for Human Rights Watch (a group funded by Progressive billionaire George Soros) claims that Climate Change is causing, of all things, child marriage:
"Sanjita had very little to say on the subject of how she felt about getting married. Maybe that’s because she’s 10 years old. She had married 18 days earlier, to a boy who is 14 or 15 years old—he works in a garment factory in Dhaka and as a rickshaw driver.
Bangladesh is one of the countries most affected by natural disasters, and it is also on the front line of climate change. Some families I interviewed were losing their homes and land to river erosion; others lose crops every year to flooding or had lost everything in a cyclone. These natural disasters encourage child marriage, especially for families watching their land erode, who rush to marry off their daughters before they are displaced.....”
Ms. Barr’s claim that Climate Change causes child marriage is crazy enough to rank right up there with the claim that Climate Change will make redheads become extinct, or the claim that Climate Change will make Italian pasta disappear off the face of the earth.  And while we can rest assured that man-made Climate Change isn’t actually causing a type of child abuse disguised as marriage, or even cause a tasty Mediterranean dish to vanish, we can be sure that as long as there are mindless followers of the Climate Change doctrine they will continue to demonstrate the definition of absolute….insanity.

Arrogant Media Elites Mock Middle America

By Salena Zito via RCP
The media's elitists just keep getting you wrong, America. And this has nothing to do with whether something is or isn't a “gotcha” question, because that is always the easy excuse for any candidate who is unhappy with a news story.
The root of the problem is how Washington and New York media view Americans and their values beyond the powerful, wealthy and intellectually elite world; it is a much deeper, disturbing and, yes, dangerous problem than the silly questions. Last week the DC-New York media responded in epic fashion to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's comment that he didn't think President Obama “loves” America. They nearly tripped over themselves to ask every potential GOP presidential contender if he agreed with Giuliani; their braying eventually led to mocking Christians.
In an interview with the Trib, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said that while Giuliani could have better framed his point, it was accurate. Then Jindal offered a critical observation: When we face truly grave concerns, from economic disconnection to radicalized Islam, why did this supposed issue rise above those others for so long and with such velocity?
Jindal nailed it.
Reporters will always ask questions that place candidates in a pinch; that's their job, Jindal said. But this time, they took that responsibility to a different level.  When reporters manipulate answers in order to drive clicks to their websites, or try over and over to “drive” news with non-news, it's a dangerous game.
For the elites, the Rudy incident was a Big Story.  But most Americans knew nothing about it, or wondered why it mattered.
In Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio bars, diners and bakeries and on the streets, the Americans I interviewed — men, women, whites, blacks, old, young — repeatedly said Giuliani wasn't running for office, so why should we care what he said.
Many of them blamed my profession for not asking real questions, such as what are we doing about national threats like ISIS, have the Veterans Affairs problems been fixed, or is that top-heavy economy rolling their way anytime soon.  A lot of them believe the New York-Washington press corps fundamentally misunderstands where Middle America voters stand on such issues.
Most of them marveled at how those journalists became obsessed with Giuliani's words at a time when the president is asking for congressional authorization of his use of military force that doesn't involve much military force — and were amazed that this was not the week's real scandal.
But the need to drive the news got worse: First, a Washington Post reporter asked Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker if he thought Obama was a Christian; Walker replied that he didn't know because he'd never asked the president about his religious beliefs.  Walker's answer led to the braying-of-the-jackasses on social media, followed by widespread mocking of the Wisconsin Republican's recurring comment that he talks with God. (Repeated tweets noted that he was recently asked under public records laws to provide “a copy/transcript of all communications with God, the Lord, Christ, Jesus or any other form of deity.”)
On any given Sunday, outside the Washington-New York bubble, people go to church, pray, eat breakfast with their families — and make God an integral part of their lives. They don't understand the press mocking that tradition.  And I am not just talking about conservatives here. Millions of religious Democrats are out there, values-voters who have not shown up for presidential elections in recent years, all because of the same kind of disconnect.
A reporter's job is to report the news, not to drive it or to create it. A reporter's audience is not just an echo chamber, not just D.C. friends, rivals, partisans and followers on social media. (Remember: Only 8 percent of Americans get their news through Twitter.)  As consumers of news, most Americans want an honest look at the potential presidential candidates and where they stand on serious issues.
Reporters mock those news-consumers when they mock candidates who aren't like the reporters themselves — but who are very much like normal Americans.
It is unforgivably arrogant for anyone in the media to think that the rest of the country thinks like they do.

OH NO.......Tell Me It Ain't So Reverand AL

Sharpton's MSNBC Show May Soon See The Chopping Block

Truth Revolt
"Thursday, MSNBC announced the cancellation of Ronan Farrow's and Joy Reid's afternoon bombs—a move many saw coming for some time now with both shows consistently tanking in the ratings. But inside sources say that the dual cancellations are just the beginning of a major shakeup at ratings-challenged MSNBC, as the network attempts to move back toward the center after veering far left. Next on the chopping block: Chris Hayes and possibly Al Sharpton.
 Citing two "well-placed sources," The Daily Beast reports that in addition to canceling Chris Hayes' struggling 8 p.m. show in the "relatively short term," Al Sharpton's weeknight 6 p.m. show is likely to get the ax "in the longer term," with the controversial host relegated to a weekend slot.
 Sharpton's "PoliticsNation," though popular with African Americans (accounting for 35 percent of the audience), has continued to underperform—as has the host, who is regularly mocked for his teleprompter gaffs and insincere posturing. Sharpton's self-promotional version of civil rights activism, his deplorable tax record, and controversy-ridden past have frequently resulted in unflattering headlines during his stint at the network.
 MSNBC President Phil Griffin's personnel and programming changes are part of a larger move away from the left-wing political commentary that has become MSNBC's trademark toward straight news reporting.
“Everybody in the food chain from top to bottom understands that the Olbermann era is over,” said one of the sources. “Going left was a brilliant strategy while it lasted and made hundreds of millions of dollars for Comcast, but now it doesn’t work any more...The goal is to move away from left-wing TV.”
Frankly, I think they should keep Rev. Al on in Prime Time and scoop up the Ad Dollars, seeing most of his viewers don't agree with him but watch because he can be much more entertaining than anything on Comedy Central.

Raging Progressive Bigotry

Public Secrets
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the worst reactionary bigots I’ve ever met have all been on the Left. 
I’d never heard of Michael Tomasky before untill my feed reader was suddenly full of commentary about his anti-South screed at The Daily Beast.  Apparently the recent disaster the Democrats suffered in the midterm elections set him to boiling, and Mary Landrieu’s defeat over the weekend in the Louisiana runoff blew the lid off:
"Practically the whole region has rejected nearly everything that’s good about this country and has become just one big nuclear waste site of choleric, and extremely racialized, resentment.  A fact made even sadder because on the whole they’re such nice people! (I truly mean that.)
With Landrieu’s departure, the Democrats will have no more senators from the Deep South, and I say good. Forget about it.  Forget about the whole fetid place. Write it off. Let the GOP have it and run it and turn it into Free-Market Jesus Paradise. The Democrats don’t need it anyway."
“They’re such nice people, but I really hate their guts!”
Mikey then goes on to say there are some parts of the South the Democrats really do need, but for the rest he wishes secession had succeeded, because they just aren’t real Americans down there.
Yeesh. Look, Mike.  I know the election was hard on you. From Texas to the Atlantic, there is now only two Democratic statewide officeholder in the Old Confederacy. Landrieu lost a seat the Democrats held since I think the 1870s.
I get it.  This is tough on you. It can’t be easy being rejected when you’re so cock-sure of your own side’s intellectual and moral superiority. I only hope you didn’t smash the keyboard while writing your tirade.  I’d like to think the election results would have lead you and your fellow progressives to reflect on why you lost so badly in that part of the country. What policies lead to your rejection? What was it about what the Democrats were offering that made so many say “no, thanks?”
But, no.  You and so many like you in the progressive commentariat already know the answer, no self-reflection needed:  “They’re all a bunch of mouth-breathing Jesus-fetishists who just don’t know what’s good for them, so we should just tell them to go to Hell!”
If that’s the case, Mike, how do you explain Colorado and Iowa, where Republicans won the Senate races?  Or New Mexico and Nevada, where Latino Republicans won reelection for governor?  Or deep-Blue Maryland and Massachusetts, where Republicans also won the elections for governor?  I’ve never been to Maryland, but I know it ain’t a “Free-Market Jesus Paradise.”
You know, when Reconstruction ended and the Democrats returned to power, using Jim Crow laws and their allied terrorist groups, such as the KKK, to make sure Blacks could never vote Republican — or often not at all. There’s a good book on all that and more.
If you want to find the real bigot suffering from “choleric resentment,” Mike, try looking in the mirror.

Weed Shopping With MSNBC

A Girls Guide to Scoring Reefer with Ricky Maddow 

Our favorite gender confused MSNBC personality, Rachel Maddow, traveled to Denver for a live broadcast Tuesday night. It was just a little weird to watch MSNBC's version of news with an audience applauding and cheering in the background.   The highlight (ha!) of the episode was Maddow’s visit to a dispensary of “recreational meds,” aka “weed,”  “Mary Jane,” “reefer,” or “why Phish had a career.”

She’s introduced to the world of boutique dispensary operation, from the goofy — as she goes down the steps into the store, she notes that it “smells like college” — to the mundane practical challenges of running a business that’s legal under Colorado state  law, but not under national law, which means dispensaries can’t keep their money in banks. It’s funny and informative, and Rachel closes by confirming that, in the state of Colorado, she now knows that she’s “a certified dork.”

Ricky, you've just admitted what we've always believed. You are indeed a real Dick Dork.
