The real reason to be outraged over the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Published

on

The annual love fest between the mostly liberal media and Washington elitists in government took place at the White House Correspondents’ dinner this past weekend, and for the second year in a row, Donald Trump chose not to attend.

Trump’s decision to duck an event where roasting the White House is a major part of the evening is easy to understand when you accept the fact that Trump’s fragile ego and his narcissistic need for unconditional praise literally drives his every decision. We need look no further for proof of this fact than Trump’s attendance at a previous WHCD when Obama was president where he roasted Trump over his conspiracy theories about Obama’s birth certificate. Clearly, Trump is unable to take a joke when he’s the butt of one.

Lately, however, the WHCD has become a display of how identity politics have completely polarized America, making it impossible to discuss issues or engage in friendly banter between opposing viewpoints. This tradition continued as witnessed in a performance by comedian Michelle Wolf that included vulgar jokes about abortion, homosexuality, and other controversial issues laced with an abundance of obscenities.

As you are probably aware, Wolf garnered the most criticism for taking a few shots at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders and that Trump used those attacks to fuel his fake news spiel on twitter.

Besides his lame attempt to advance his “FAKE NEWS” agenda, Trump and his loyal minions are showing their hypocrisy by objecting to Wolf’s performance.

Donald Trump is a man with a long and distinguished history of offensive comments, mainly about women, made for political and personal reasons. Still, his followers defend this behavior, calling it evidence of a man who simply “tells it like it is” or as proof of his toughness, even though in reality, it’s a clinical display of the insecurities of a bully.

Trump’s claim that the WHCD is now “DEAD” is open for debate, but his claim that it was “a disaster” and “an embarrassment” is the epitome of irony when you consider his track record.

Perhaps the best analysis of the hypocrisy being displayed by those offended over Wolf’s performance comes from one of my favorite satire sites, The Babylon Bee, with a post titled Trump Supporters Upset Democrats are Telling Mean Jokes. You should check it out.

If Wolf’s comedy routine is an embarrassment to America, how much more embarrassing is it to our values when those same actions come from the President of the United States?

    Why should POTU attend a hotel dinner where the featured entertainment is the same stale White House bashing that occurs 24/7/365 in the legacy media?

OANs take on Kamala Harris and 2020 is epic

I love that I’ve found One American News Network. Their reports are a breath of fresh air compared to mainstream media’s repetitive rhetoric. One of their latest videos is loaded with truth.

On The Daily Ledger, host Graham Ledger says what should be evident to anyone following Senator Kamala Harris. She’s taking every opportunity to demonize reality and lift her presidential aspirations. It doesn’t matter who she hurts in the process.

Leftists to white women: Either you agree with the radical left or we will paint you as evil

Leftists to white women Either you agree with the radical left or we will paint you as evil

Leftists like Kirsten Powers love binary choices. Vote against Donald Trump or you’re racist. That’s the message she delivered on CNN the other day and conservatives are speaking out.

In particular, Powers and many leftists are attacking white women as the cause for Trump’s power. She paints any white woman who voted for Trump as a submissive, oppressed enabler of the racist and sexist patriarchy. Thankfully, One America News Network had a retort.

The Liberty grabber Left has nuked its own argument over guns Part I

The Left can’t argue that you don’t need a gun because the government won’t turn tyrannical while threatening that the government will turn tyrannical.

In what has to be the ultimate and game-changing tweet, Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) threatened nuclear annihilation to anyone who refuses to give up their right of self-defense. The ensuing ‘fallout’ seeing him resort to damage control tactic of saying that thermonuclear gun confiscation was just a ‘joke’. After all, Who hasn’t chuckled at the prospect of the government going tyrannical with an H-bomb? One can easily see the bumper stickers now: Vote Swalwell 2020- or I will nuke your…

One of the Left’s favorite little tactics is to accuse those of the Pro-Liberty right of being ‘terrorists’ as their usual method of demonizing their opponents. Take note of the Oxford English Dictionary definition of the word Terrorist:

Adjective [attributive] Unlawfully using violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

Origin
Late 18th century: from French terroriste, from Latin terror (see terror). The word was originally applied to supporters of the Jacobins in the French Revolution, who advocated repression and violence in pursuit of the principles of democracy and equality.

The long train of demands for gun confiscation

Perhaps Eric ‘Nukem’ Swalwell doesn’t realize his tweet was the ultimate in the listing of demands for gun confiscation by the Liberty grabber Left. A long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, as Thomas Jefferson termed it in the Declaration of Independence. That his erstwhile ‘joke’ he, Piers Morgan and others have made is the nuclear straw that broke the camels back. They, along with all the other Leftists who have demanded gun confiscation have initiated a sea of change in the debate over the common sense human right of self-defense.

The old approach by the Left that denied that confiscation was their ultimate goal

It used to be that the Left would hide behind a mask of support of the 2nd amendment. Never mind that each move they made was towards their final solution to the gun problem. Their tired refrain to most arguments about guns was that ‘No one is talking about gun confiscation’ or ‘No one is talking about repealing the 2nd amendment’ or some variation thereof. This was a way to short-circuit the debate to one of incremental or ‘progressive’ steps negating any of their ill effects.

Pointing out that some new law would punish 120 million gun owners for the deeds of a few criminals would see the abject denial of ‘no one is being punished’ or ‘No one is talking about gun confiscation’.

Mention that a new restriction on freedom infringing on the 2nd amendment and those who pretend to be Liberal on the Left would answer back ‘No one is talking about repealing the 2nd amendment’.

Talk about Intergalactic Background Checks [or Universal, enhanced or ‘Common sense’] would place government control over your personal property while acting as a stepping stone to confiscation would be met with the assertion that you must believe in conspiracy theories and that ‘No one is talking about gun confiscation’.

The disturbing trend in Leftists demands for gun confiscation.

We have previously established that the Left wants to ban and confiscate all guns with over 70 documented instances of those demands. Leaving out the multiplying effect of the excerpting and reprinting of those demands.

This arduous task was under taken to prove a point, that the Left has dropped the mask on this subject. But it has also revealed a disturbing trend over the years. What began a few years ago as few and far between calls for gun confiscation has morphed into far more strident and frequent demands. Demands that were only made in obscure far-Left online publications have found their way into the mainstream and supposedly Liberal media sources. The rate on the number of demands made per ‘serious crisis’ have accelerated to the ultimate demand made by Eric ‘Nukem’ Swalwell. This has manifestly changed the debate in favour of the Pro-Liberty Conservative side.

Consider a sampling of these demands:

What began as mere calls to amend the Constitution – removing a fundamental human right in the process – or banning certain ‘types’ of guns. Have become threats to turn over all of our guns or to ‘comprise’ and lose some of them with incremental steps.

Then the Left became impatient, unable to restrain it’s ‘collective’ hatred of Liberty.

For at least the past several years, to say that those two talking points [or a variation thereof] were a complete and total lie would be an understatement of epic proportions. But even now that hasn’t stopped Leftists from denying the obvious.

But now the Nuke comment has changed all of that, everyone is now seeing that the Left has been making their demands for gun confiscation in every corner of their echo chamber. This is part of the reason many have undertaken the task of documenting these demands such as Here, Here and of course here.

Their open demands for gun confiscation and for the suppression of other types of Liberty have changed the dynamic. It is now a question of Liberty versus tyranny – with the Left being on the side of governmental oppression to the tune of nuclear annihilation if one does not comply.

In part II we will examine the debate in terms of the new paradigm of Liberty versus Tyranny.
