Commentary Sniglets

Juicy Smolett

It's not white privilege, it's privilege. The poor have been being pushed around by the rich since there was that distinction between poor and rich. Rich nations with vast resources and an intelligent population have prospered and have exploited the poorer neighbors. To expect that it is not so is to deny reality and history. Ambitious, talented people who are born into circumstances of poverty can rise above that in America. Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Ben Carson are examples of that. It doesn't mean that you need to like Oprah or Dr. Carson. They did it. That's what is great about America.

Lindsay Graham

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is promoting his anti-firearms legislation. He was the late Sen. McCain's bestest buddy, so who can be surprised that this would be his hue and cry? He's now conducting hearings on Senate Bill 7, the Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act of 2019—otherwise known as a national “red flag” gun confiscation bill. 

Why do we need federal legislation to confiscate firearms? If there is a local problem with a local person who creates a situation involving firearms, allow that local problem to be dealt with appropriately at that local level. What Graham, RINO's and donkeys suggest is that a rumor mill that this or that person is 'unsound' should be sufficient probable cause to have their firearms seized by the federal government. 

Statues of Trump

I assert that for every statue of a Confederate General that is pulled down that we erect a statue of Donald J. Trump, in recognition of making America great again. And of course, those statues should be gold.

The Green New Deal

Isn't it funny that none of the donkeys want to own the Green New Deal now? They must have looked at the polling and found that if they pounce on that one, even the donkey faithful would savage them. Apparently none of them think that we're really all gonna die in twelve years if we don't spend 100 trillion dollars (more money than there is on the planet) to go full socialist/communist and eliminate cars and cows.

Nobody wants to follow AOC down that rabbit hole. (hahaha)

Slow Joe for President

Joe Biden, who is not yet a candidate, though he picked a person who identifies as black-female as a VP running mate, hit the campaign tour regimen by apologizing for being white and male and Catholic. Obama made a big tour after election worldwide by apologizing for being American. Since Biden was Obama's VP, I guess it makes sense that he'd begin by apologizing as he courts people who have a grievance. 

Slow Joe doesn't say what he'd replace western culture with. Africa, where slavery and oppression of women is still practiced, is not a good model and neither is Islam. Joe hasn't become a Muslim yet, but I'm sure that he would in exchange for a vote. He hasn't exactly said, "make America into Africa or Saudi Arabia" yet...but for a vote, why not? The reality is that the grievance culture is a culture of MANY grievances, many confused people who don't know what they want and are flummoxed by the concept of cause and effect. They want socialism but they don't really want Venezuela. They want total control, but they really don't want North Korea. 

Besides being white, male, rich and elite, Biden has a lot of skeletons in his political closet. This tour may be his chance to air the filthy laundry. Is he going to run on the Obama legacy (completely wiped out by Donald Trump)? Run Joe, run.

The Corrupt Lying Media

There has been a large sucking sound emanating from the glittering headquarters offices of the corrupt, lying, sly, smug, foolish elite media. What will they report on now that the Russia hoax has been exposed...and the corrupt FISA warrants will be made public... and everyone knows that the totality of their broadcast content over the past two and a half years has been BS?

Their ratings continue in a death spiral and I can't help but wonder what the stockholders are thinking.

Sure, there is the global warming hoax, now called "climate change" - an ill defined 'cause' for grievance people to cling to. There is black anger stoked by the Smolett matter, also turned out to be a hoax. Or maybe there's another hoax out there that they can find and play 24/7 like the anti-Trump (hoax) broadcasting that they've done?  I'd suggest actual reporting of facts rather than trying to make the news, but that doesn't seem to appeal to them, does it?

  1. I like the statue idea. The gold should be solid and funding will be provided by the DNC.

  2. Red flag- AKA "make your ex's life a hell- or end his life"- so now a persons fate is determined by a secret court, influenced by anonymous informers with an axe to grind, executed by surprise raid at 3am. If the guy was not dangerous beforehand, he sure will be afterwards. I wonder how long it will be till internet comments (AKA hate speech) will be considered due cause for a raid?

  3. Red flag laws and the ilk force conservatives to expend energy and resources fighting them. Maybe that is the point. A war of attrition. Perhaps the reason (P)regressives hate President Trump is he is forcing them to do the same. As to Lindsey Graham, thwarted Presidential ambitions. Can't have that? Be the "Lion of the Senate".

  4. Apart from anger over the massive societal and legal problems created by l'affaire Smollett, I continue to be amazed at just how stupid the execution of the actual caper was. JS owns: use of own cell phone, personal check, idiot story/plot, failure to control his narcissism situationally. Los hermanos Nigeranos own: use of their own cell phones, getting caught on video buying the jeezly rope, not disposing of the magazine used to cut out words for the "white powder letter".

    It'd be all sorts of racist or whatever to point out that at least half of Jussie's ancestry is supposed to be smart, which he clearly wasn't, so I won't point it out.

    If I had my tinfoil beanie on, I'd suggest that it was deliberately stupid, as an "in your face" move. And that Rahm Emanuel presser was weird. I've never listened to a speech of his before, but he was frequently misusing words, to the point where it was like listening to someone for whom English is a second language. (Harry Potter fans might suggest that the Nine-Fingered Tiny Dancer's native tongue is actually Parseltongue, but I'm not much of a Potterite.)

  5. What cracked me up was AOC saying she "Told the dem senators how to vote!"... sigh

  6. Unless the courts rule "red flag laws" as the unconstitutional assault on rights and freedom that they blatantly are (don't hold your breath for the courts to do the right thing) then the left will make them UNIVERSAL and use them to disarm EVERYONE. Total disarmament of their intended slaves is and has always been number one on their agenda to achieve total power.

    The media whores ignore anything that they can't use to serve their commie demonrat masters. Thus the Mueller report will die quickly to be replaced by the lefts next assault on Trump, America and freedom.

  7. There's a lot to like about this post but I'm especially in favor of:

    "I assert that for every statue of a Confederate General that is pulled down that we erect a statue of Donald J. Trump, in recognition of making America great again. And of course, those statues should be gold."

    Yes. Gold, REAL GOLD.
