Memo to AOC, Julian Castro (remember him?) and Lin-Manuel Miranda: We live in the United States of America, not a Banana Republic where people are silenced (or executed) for having opposing viewpoints. Via The Blaze. Goya Foods CEO Bob Unanue refuses to kowtow to progressive pressure after issuing remarks of support for President Donald Trump. On Thursday, Unanue insisted that the United States is “blessed” to have Trump for president, spurning calls for boycotts of the beloved, affordable brand. He made the remarks at a White House event, saying, “We are all truly blessed … to have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder.” “We have an incredible builder, and we pray — we pray for our leadership,...

Why? From Tammy’s latest column at Washington Times: Marxist mobs sweep into cities, call for defunding of police, tear down statues and create havoc We were told this was a “movement” to make Black lives matter. We were told this was a movement to reform and improve the police. We were told Black Americans were being targeted and killed indiscriminately and that had to stop. After George Floyd’s death, we were told many things with which we agreed. But instead of a movement to make Black lives matter, anarchist Antifa thugs and the Democratic Party-associated Marxist Black Lives Matter swooped in — exploiting Black lives, the continuing tragedy of the inner city and the goodwill and unity of the American...

This teacher is working on her doctoral dissertation. I didn’t know you could get a Ph.D. in ‘Dumb.’ If she wants to believe that 2+2=4 is open to “other interpretations,” fine. But lots of luck getting medication filled where the pharmacist “re-interprets” the prescription numbers in a more woke manner. Or walking into an elevator where the building construction crew “re-imagined” the blueprints based on their feelings. Via PJ Media. Brittany Marshall, a self-described teacher and Ph.D. student, took to Twitter this past weekend to voice her displeasure about the concept of 2+2=4, saying the “idea” of the simple math equation is merely “cultural.”…. “Nope the idea of 2+2 equaling 4 is cultural and because of western imperialism/colonization, we think...

Nate McMurray is not just some annoying Twitter troll, he is a Democrat running for Congress. He thinks he is being clever by conflating ‘racism’ with ‘Trump support.’ Last night, Joe Biden promised that if he wins, he will ‘transform’ America. Does ‘transform’ means getting rid of the Second Amendment, and the First Amendment too? Via Breitbart. Nate McMurray, the Democrat candidate for New York’s 27th Congressional District, urged Twitter followers Wednesday to “report” Trump supporters…. When you see fake videos, when you see racism, when you hear support for Trump… Do not roll your eyes Do not play nice Do not worry about hurting someone’s feelings CALL IT OUT—REPORT IT—FIGHT IT We can not reward or tolerate ignorance. It...

None of the council members reported any threats to the police, but…whatever. Via The Blaze. The Democrat-controlled Minneapolis City Council controversially voted to disband its police department in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death. Now, three members of the city council are costing taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars per week because they have hired private security after receiving threats related to their support for defunding the Minneapolis Police Department…. Over the past three weeks, the city has spent $63,000 of taxpayer money on their private security details, a city spokesperson told KMSP…. However, the Minneapolis PD told KMSP there has not been a filed police report for threats against any of the city’s council members, though one could...

George Kirby? Floyd Taylor? George Taylor? Because Pelosi and Schumer *really* care…about their own power, about defeating President Trump, and about turning our country into a huge dumpster fire. Do they care about Senator Tim Scott’s efforts at real police reform? Not so much. Via BPR. ….Pandering in response to the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which Democrats passed Thursday in the House, as Pelosi recalled the exchange she referred to Floyd as “George Kirby.” “And I’m very proud… that before he testified he said to me, ‘Madam Speaker, do you think that I can tell George’s daughter his name will be always remembered because you’ll name the bill for him,” Pelosi said. “And I said, ‘Well I’ll recommend...

Wait, having a police-free area brings homelessness, drug dealers and prostitution? Who knew?…said no rational person, ever. Via Fox News. A progressive Minneapolis neighborhood that pledged not to call the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd is now dealing with a 300-strong homeless encampment in a local park, according to reports. Traffic has reportedly increased in the neighborhood around Powderhorn Park, as drug dealers seek to meet their clientele displaced during the civil unrest, rioting and looting following Floyd’s death at the end of May. At least one person overdosed inside the park and was brought out by an ambulance. Prostitution has also been reported in the area. Residents though have agreed to “check their privilege”...

Hey Brian, are we still safe wearing a mask… if we first put our grubby hands all over it, and then put it back over our nose and mouth? Asking for a friend. And Twitchy’s description of Stelter as a “frothy-mouthed yenta on helium” is probably the best thing you’ll read all weekend 🙂 Via Twitchy. …did he really think screeching like a frothy-mouthed yenta on helium about this kid would convince people to wear a mask? Spare us the eye rolls about the mask being political, Tater, because Democrats were the ones to politicize the damn things…. If my three-year-old can adapt to wearing a mask on her bike rides — and she has — adults can wear masks...

Yes, the mayor of NYC actually said it. Because apparently it is soooo much easier for him to target Jewish mothers and their children than to stop protesters, er, looters/arsonists. After everything NY has allowed, this is disgusting and outrageous. https://t.co/6BdPwXkHq5 — Tammy Bruce (@HeyTammyBruce) June 9, 2020 Via Free Beacon. New York City mayor Bill de Blasio (D.) on Thursday said he would not reopen playgrounds to families because it is “too much of a risk” but said large protest gatherings may continue…. Hamodia journalist Reuvain Borchardt had asked de Blasio how it was fair to allow protests to continue amid the coronavirus pandemic while families are prohibited from using playgrounds. “How does it promote equality, Mr. Mayor, when...

NYC Mayor de Blasio’s wife just said a police-free NYC would be “Nirvana.” So, dear occupier/activist/domestic terrorist, enjoy your….Nirvana. In your land of CHAZ… or something. Via Daily Caller. An activist who claimed to have helped establish the self-declared Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), a six-block area in downtown Seattle, took to Twitter to complain about the community’s food being stolen…. If only there was some group you could call when people take all your stuff. pic.twitter.com/Q6oQOogwMI — Cam Edwards (@CamEdwards) June 10, 2020 Rantz: Inslee baffles literally everyone with Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone answer Welcome to CHAZ.

‘Nice’ leftist touch, to totally ignore any mention of honoring the memory of our military men and women on Memorial Day. And praising Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his “responsible decisions” ? Would that include the deaths of over 5400 nursing home residents, thanks to his “responsible decisions” ? With all due respect, Hillary should just shut up and read Tammy Bruce’s latest Washington Times column: N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s careless cruelty shows in coronavirus nursing …Did Mr. Cuomo’s attitude that elderly victims of the virus were going to die “no matter what you do” inform his decision to send them back to nursing homes? Did he not want to “waste” a bed anywhere else on these supposedly hopeless cases? When...

Biden accuses President Trump of being “dangerously irresponsible” by announcing that he is taking hydroxychloroquine, because “no serious medical person” is saying to use the drug. But it is Biden who is being dangerously irresponsible in mocking the use of this drug. Last time I checked, Joe Biden did not have a medical degree. And neither does his wife, who, despite Whoopi Goldberg proclaiming that “Dr. Jill is a hell of a doctor” who would make a great Surgeon General,” has a doctoral degree, Ed.D., in education, for her thesis: Student retention at the community college : meeting students’ needs Via NR. Yesterday, I pointed out the potential consequences of having an overwrought, childish, partisan debate over a lifesaving drug...

Ok, Kamala, now immediate prosecute CNN for perpetrating racist hate speech: CNN blasted for now declaring ‘Wuhan virus’ as ‘racist’ after weeks of network’s ‘China’s coronavirus’ coverage And, Kamala: this: Via Free Beacon. Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) introduced a bill last week that would malign people as racists for using the term “Chinese Virus,” connecting it to hate crimes. Senate Resolution 580 condemns “all forms of Anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID-19,” citing “Chinese Virus,” “Wuhan Virus,” and “Kung Flu” as inaccurate rhetoric perpetuating anti-Asian stigma. The bill calls on public officials to denounce such rhetoric in any form. It also calls on law enforcement officials to investigate, document, and prosecute the perpetrators of hate crimes against Asian Americans....

You will be able to go to a restaurant under the Green New Deal without getting arrested. You just won’t be able to order a steak, because… cow flatulence, or something. Arugula, anyone? And if you like being treated like an infant by your local authorities, you will absolutely adore having the Federal government dictate your every move. Think of the Green New Deal as the COVID-19 quarantine…on steroids. Via NY Post. The cost of the left’s Green New Deal is so enormous most Americans were probably never able to appreciate its true magnitude. Now, thanks to the COVID-19 crisis, maybe they can…. Last year, a study co-authored by a former head of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found the...
