Trump could shoot a neo-Nazi on Fifth Avenue and liberals would still say it’s not enough

Published

on

Today, President Trump signed a Congressional Joint Resolution condemning the violence and bigotry in Charlottesville and elsewhere in America. Here’s his statement:

As Americans, we condemn the recent violence in Charlottesville and oppose hatred, bigotry, and racism in all forms. No matter the color of our skin or our ethnic heritage, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We are a Nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. As one people, let us move forward to rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Just a few hours before signing the resolution, Trump spoke about his meeting with South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott aboard Air Force One. He once again mentioned how “both sides” had violence. He’s totally right. But he’s also right to sign the resolution.

Trump’s earlier comments on Charlottesville came one day after he met in private with Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, the Senate’s lone black Republican, at the White House. The two discussed the president’s past remarks blaming “many sides” for the violence and death around a Confederate statue.

 

 

 

President Trump Stands By Original Charlottesville Remarks | WBUR News

http://www.wbur.org/npr/551069462/president-trump-stands-by-original-charlottesville-remarksAntifa is an anti-fascist protest movement that sometimes uses violent tactics to resist neo-Nazis and white supremacists and has gotten a lot of attention, especially from conservative media, following the violence in Charlottesville.

The Anti-Defamation League’s CEO, Jonathan Greenblatt, said in a statement Thursday that “It is sad that the President seems not to have learned from his conversation with Senator Scott or from the unanimous vote from Congress condemning the neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville.” Greenblatt added, “If he is not going to provide the moral leadership the country needs on this issue, we are glad that leaders from both parties are stepping up and doing so.”

 

Reactions

Liberals didn’t give Trump any credit whatsoever for this action. It’s as if he never signed it. Even liberal media focused on Trump’s (correct!) statements about Antifa violence, framing that vicious group as mild-mannered protesters who “sometimes” use violent methods.

There are hundreds and hundreds of these takes on Twitter and I’m sure all social media.

Final thoughts

Even if Trump took a rifle and shot dead a neo-Nazi in full public view on Fifth Avenue, the liberal press, and the public who go along with their narrative would think he’s just doing it as a stunt and later winked. They’d go so far as to make up conspiracy theories that the guy wasn’t really dead.

In the end, it doesn’t matter what Trump does, other than parrot their narrative (which means he’d have to resign since that’s sort of what Antifa wants, before they impose their own reign of terror).

This makes me glad–in these cases–that Trump is immune to hate. He’s immune to people not liking him, as long as he has people who do. The president did the right thing, for the right reason. Let’s at least acknowledge it, but the left can’t because it’s Trump.

College newspaper attacks professional news media for reporting the news

College newspaper attacks professional news media for reporting the news

One of the student newspapers at the New York public college where police are reportedly allowed “as a courtesy” to use an out-of-the-way, dilapidated bathroom, is trying to school some of the reporting outlets (including NOQ Report) as “fake news” for revealing the embarrassing anti-police sentiments of its student body.

The defense from the student news media?

The student bathrooms are in horrible condition all around campus, including:

A toilet missing its seat can be found in Boylan Hall. A bucket catching dripping water from a sink can be seen in the “New Ingersoll Extension” that was built onto the main Ingersoll building. No soap or paper towels is a problem even inside Brooklyn College’s most iconic building, the library, famous for its clock tower that is featured in the official logo for the college. The Kingsman has extensively reported on infrastructure disrepair and budgetary woes over the past two years, including articles that feature broken and dis-repaired bathrooms of both genders, only two plumbers available to fix over 100 bathrooms on campus, and, as of May 2017, a security camera system that isn’t fully functional.

So, in other words, what the hell are the cops complainin’ about?

The Excelsior newspaper, however, reports without an apparent trace of irony the unscientific poll of students (by the other newspaper) showing over one-fifth of students polled support banning police from the campus.

NOQ Report has been researching this story and will have more on the possible causes of the anti-police sentiments on this particular campus, where students’ college educations are generously supported by you, the taxpayer.

Images of Franken ‘groping’ Huffington aren’t the same as his other acts of sexual misconduct

Published

on

Al Franken Arianna Huffington

The media has a tendency to pile on when a story has legs. One such story is Senator Al Franken’s sexual misconduct. The first two stories about him were appropriate. The most recent one about leaked photos from a shoot featuring him and Arianna Huffington don’t belong in the conversation.

The images, seen above, depict the former comedian groping the liberal media mogul. These are clearly inappropriate behaviors in most circumstances which is why they’re coming to light, but even Huffington acknowledges they were part of the shoot”

Newly surfaced pics show Al Franken grabbing Arianna Huffington’s breasts and butt

https://pagesix.com/2017/11/20/new-pics-show-al-franken-grabbing-arianna-huffingtons-breasts-and-butt/“The notion that there was anything inappropriate in this photo shoot is truly absurd,” she said in a statement to The Post.

“Al and I did a comedic sketch for Bill Maher’s ‘Politically Incorrect’ called ‘Strange Bedfellows,’ in which the whole point, as the name makes clear, was that we were doing political commentary from bed. This shoot was looking back at the sketch, and we were obviously hamming it up for comedic effect.

“I’ve been great friends with Al and his wife Franni for over 20 years and there has never been anything remotely inappropriate in our interactions.”

There is real sexual misconduct coming to light in rapid-fire lately. It’s natural for journalists to want to break news and get the clicks from interested readers, but we have to be more discerning in the media. This is a non-story. When it’s put out there as something that it’s not, it takes away from the real stories and reduces the perceived severity of true infractions.

Franken needs to address the real issues here. He needs to step down. Getting quotes from a feminist like Huffington that downplay his actions reflects negatively on actions he committed against other women.
