Liberal hypocrite mob emboldened by ability to repress free speech

April 24, 2017

On occasion we’ve posted columns under the heading, “Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter.” They’ve been written by well-respected conservative thinkers who had a message we thought our readers would not only appreciate, but actually benefit from.

Today is Monday.  The weekend is behind us. But the column by Derek Hunter posted on Townhall is definitely worth your time. We hope you‘ll take time to read, Is Ann Coulter The Last Conservative With Guts?”

Focusing on the left’s repression of speech that disagrees with its own, Hunter highlights not only the withdrawal of an invitation issued to Ann Coulter to speak at UC Berkeley — and her refusal to acquiesce — but also on the removal of prime time stalwart Bill O’Reilly, host of Fox News’ highest rated show The O”Reilly Factor.

Derek Hunter zones in on ground zero as he states: “To the fascistic left, Fox News can’t do right because its existence is wrong. As long as it exists, they will find something to be upset about and demand action on. And advertisers will cave. I don’t know what Bill O’Reilly did or didn’t do,“ he writes,  “but I do know nothing was proven.”

As to the issue of subjugating First Amendment freedoms on campuses that should be bastions of liberty, Hunter writes, “But the Nazi march across publicly funded college campuses to prevent students from inviting conservative speakers is a government issue. It’s a direct, unambiguous violation of the First Amendment. Where’s the outrage? Where are the public statements of condemnation? More importantly, where is the legislation to defund these indoctrination centers?”

Universities foster and elevate victimhood

In today’s zany world, it had to happen. Intending-to-produce-“snowflake“-guilt courses such as the Problem of Whiteness within the African Cultural Studies program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and White Privilege along with courses in Black Lives Matter. As colleges offer monetary scholarship inducements at Sam Houston State University in Texas lunacy has reached its zenith.

Now we read that Students at Western Kentucky University voted in favor of a resolution seeking to provide free tuition to black students as reparations for slavery. The Student Government Association passed this resolution Wednesday by a vote of 19-10, according to this report in the Lexington Herald-Leader. Their parents and other Kentucky taxpayers will be footing the bill for what the coddled students regard as free.

The Civil War ended over a hundred and fifty years ago. President Abraham Lincoln, a Republican, halted slavery with the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863. Today, any American with a determination to succeed can work, study, achieve and aided by a wide variety of academic scholarships, complete their education. 

Yet people out-hustle themselves to claim greater victim status. There are countless books on the topic, detailing every conceivable affront.  The very concept of victimization now carries with it an odd measure of prestige. Academia has fostered a nation of victims who revel in their new-found status and exhibit an ambivalence about growing up.

Writing for PJ Media, David Solway’s snowflake” description is as good as they come:

“Anyone who has followed academic issues since the anti-intellectual 1960s knows that the university is in serious trouble, catering to a professoriate that has bought into the travesty of “social justice” a coercive ideology obsessed with “victim groups.”

The university’s ancestral mission of pursuing truth has been replaced by a species of social engineering and leftist indoctrination. At the same time, it views its mandate as establishing a “safe space” for a student clientele that spends far too much of its time and energy “wringing its hands over pronouns, gluten and microaggressions” (link to Jon Brown at American Thinker) rather than devoting itself to the rigors of study and the acquisition of honest merit. These impoverished souls have come to be known as “snowflakes,” justifiably.”

The victim mentality is a cultural phenomena that looks to blame others for perceived shortcomings. For too many, the long acclaimed sense of personal responsibility has given way to desiring a mantle of inevitable weakness.  Universities stand as a testament to that foolish philosophy.

Recently the students at Notre Dame University protested Vice President Pence, a former Indiana governor and native son, as their commencement speaker, saying his appearance on campus “made them feel unsafe.”

Conservative Ann Coulter has been disinvited to speak at left-wing Berkeley University, where repression of First Amendment freedoms take center stage.

We read the AZ Republic so you don’t have to

Hammering Republican state legislators is latest gig

The Arizona Republic made much ado of the fact that its endorsement of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race was an aberration.  After all, it claims to be a conservative newspaper. Still it said “Hillary Clinton was the only choice to move America ahead” despite her “flaws.”

“Flaws?” The newspaper has obviously mastered the art of understatement.

Arizonans, too smart to believe such absurdities, voted for Donald Trump — who won the state by 91,234 votes, carrying 11 of the 15 counties. Trump took all 11 electoral votes.

On his powerful coattails, Republicans increased their force in state legislatures across the country, controlling both chambers in 32 states,  leaving Democrats at their lowest level since the Civil War. The GOP increased its majority of governorships. The U.S. House and Senate are both majority Republican.

Yet read the daily newspaper and you’d think Democrats were the people’s choice. A case in point is columnist Laurie Roberts, who veered away from her tales-of-woe specialty to hammer state legislators. This was not a wholesale bashing, as a former columnist routinely engaged in, calling the entire assemblage by the politically incorrect term, “dwarves.”

No. Roberts selected her targets very carefully, never referring to their stature. It was her perception of their lack of gray matter she focused on — naming seven whom she promised “will make your jaw drop.”

What a surprise to find that each of the “standouts in the theater of the absurd” are Republicans. 

The newspaper is a contemptible farce, mercifully fading fast. It has shrunken in size and uses oversized — oftentimes, half page photos or illustrations — to take up space. Content consists in large part of pre-written pap that bears no resemblance to news. Entertainment and dining are given prominence. More than occasionally the same article will appear a day apart, or even in the same issue, with a few pages separating them, earning it our nickname of The Daily Regurgitation. We also refer to it as The Periódico de la República de Arizona for its unswerving  open borders stance.

The editorial cartoonist is unable to depict anything other than gross mischaracterizations of the President of the United States. With nothing else to draw but wild orange hair, his cartoonist wife has filled in for him.

Newspaper ads are overwhelmingly for retirement homes and hearing aids, which indicates the demographic who still subscribe. The newspaper’s front page often runs a box urging readers to “Go Deeper With Digital,” since the costs of printing and distributing a daily dings the already savaged bottom line. After layoffs and buyouts of longtime employees, ASU Cronkite journalism students have become the unseasoned glue that holds the disheveled mess together. Their commitment to the First Amendment is questionable.  In 2009, after inviting Sheriff Joe Arpaio to participate in a forum, the students in the audience began loudly chanting Bohemian Rhapsody, drowning him out as he attempted to respond.

Do those in charge at the Republic actually expect anyone to take seriously the views of the skewed editorial board, the toady columnists and rude student reporters who disrespect the First Amendment?

AZ AG Brnovich: McPayback time is here

August 5, 2016

John McCain at age 80 is running — scared — for a sixth 6-year year U.S. Senate term, and is calling in his legal McChips. Just a couple of days ago we posted Dutiful Bill Montgomery plays errand boy for John McCain, reporting on the deceptive robo call made by the Maricopa County Attorney on behalf of McCain. The premise was McCain’s supposedly unwavering support of Second Amendment rights.  Seeing Red AZ exposed the fallacy of the claim with a link to this 48 – 50 Senate Roll Call vote in which he voted with the unified Democrats and three other GOP defectors in an effort to curtail this fundamental Constitutional freedom. Our nation‘s founders considered this right so  important it was placed second only to freedom of speech and assembly guaranteed in the First Amendment.

Now comes another dose of hoodwinking from Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovich. He obviously knows better, but is now being reminded that he was the establishment recruit and as many of us heard our exasperated parents say, “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.” They were speaking out of frustration.  McCain surrogates get the message out on his behalf, minus the tongue-in-cheek bravado.

Brnovich’s robo calls are remarkably similar to Montgomery’s in that they both peddle McCain’s steadfast adherence to “protecting Second Amendment rights.” Believe that at your own peril. Notice that this 2013 letter sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, clearly states the senate signers were putting Reid on notice they would oppose “any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.”  Whose name is missing? None other than John McCain.  Bill Montgomery and Mark Brnovich might not be paying attention, but you should.

Gun Owners of America has endorsed McCain challenger Dr. Kelli Ward, acknowledging “McCain has been a thorn in the side of Second Amendment supporters for years.” GOA notes that only 35% of AZ GOP voters approve of the job McCain is doing compared to 50% who disapprove. The organization scores him a D – rating. McCain, who doesn’t own a firearm himself, has as his pet project closing what he mysteriously refers to as “gun show loop holes.”

McCain’s vile temper and vindictive nature are renown. If he or his surrogates gave a hand up to a fledgling politico, steadfast allegiance remains expected.  Consort with McCain at your own risk. He will own a piece of your hide and call it in whenever it suits him. If you received the auto dialer messages, you heard this truth in action. He and the McCain supporting PACs are not above lying if it benefits him, even alleging that while in the state senate Kelli Ward voted to fund ISIS militants. Votes involving national security take place in Washington D.C., not on Washington Street at the state legislature. This blatant deceit indicates not only the magnitude of his lies, but also the fact that he thinks Arizona voters are foolish enough to buy them.

Early ballots are in the mail. Vote Dr. Kelli Ward for Arizona’s U.S. Senator. McCain needs a rest and we need a vibrant, conservative former state senator and knowledgeable family practice physician to work on revamping the Obamacare monstrosity.


Where Soros lurks, McCain, his cohorts, Hillary are close behind

March 13, 2016

McCain crony Rubio will not vote for Trump. Will McCain? Will Flake?

The organized chaos disrupting Donald Trump’s political rally in Chicago Friday, was replicated to a lesser extent in Ohio and Missouri on Saturday.  Rather than condemning the choreographed protesters, the incidents provided Marco Rubio a platform not only to denounce the candidate — rather than the driving force behind the mayhem — but also to self-righteously proclaim he doubts he’d support Trump if he were the GOP nominee.

Think about that.

Marco Rubio, who mockingly engaged in crude, gutter tactics in a recent GOP debate, now claims moral authority in deciding he’d rather allow Hillary Clinton, America’s most distrusted woman, to make crucial appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court. 

This isn’t rocket science, folks. There are connective threads that explain it all.

Though not venturing far from his own campaign as he runs for his sixth six-year senate term, John McCain, who will be 80 by Election Day, is never actually away from trying to manipulate outcomes. Doing his bidding is McCain underling Jeff Flake. Flake endorsed his Gang of Eight amnesty cohort Marco Rubio in February. Along with Lindsey Graham, the GOP quartet colluded with the most liberal contingent in the Senate: Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin  Bob Menendez and Michael Bennet. Fortunately, the amnesty legislation failed — once again.

As Rubio follows McCain’s lead, pay close attention to the connective threads. MoveOn.org is controlled by multi-billionaire, America-hating socialist, George Soros  MoveOn is a Web-based, grassroots political network that organizes “electronic advocacy groups” of over 3.2 million online activists around specific issues; raises money for left-wing candidates through rock concerts and other entertainment events; generates political ads; and wins young recruits through its appeal to the Net-savvy, MTV subculture.

Move On mobilized the criminal mobs in Ferguson, Missouri. It was directly responsible for generating the thousands of young protesters who took over the streets and venue, shutting down Trump’s Chicago rally. First Amendment guarantees of free speech be damned.

Conservative publication, Human Events lists the Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous. After reading through the list, remember the longstanding relationship between John McCain and Soros, his benefactor since 2001. McCain joined with Soros in pushing for the invasion of impossible to vet and unwilling to assimilate, Muslim “refugees.

Here we see the close linkage between McCain, Hillary Clinton and George Soros. McCain previously called Hillary a “Rock Star” he could support for president in 2016. Pay attention. Even though there’s a lot to absorb, we promise you won’t get inundated. The MSM never goes near this topic.


Phx Councilman Michael Nowakowski: Dead man walking

March 11, 2016

Liberals stifle First Amendment Freedoms

Things haven’t been going so well for Phoenix City Councilman Michael Nowakowski of late. As if his serious problems arising from conflict of interest shenanigans on an $8.5 million downtown Phoenix land deal aren’t bad enough for the District 7 Democrat, he has offended the easily miffed homosexual community, who are now calling for him to resign his council seat for what they deem offensive remarks. Feeling his political walls closing in, Nowakowski has apologized for comments he made to a group of pastors (Video) regarding same-sex marriage.

His waffling on he issue of transgendered folks using public bathrooms also doesn’t cut it with the strident minority. They want his head on a platter, or at least his butt out of his council seat. Not for his shady land deals, but for stating that he “never thought I would see the day that men and men would be married or that people were allowed to go into the same bathroom as my daughter. This world is changing and it’s time for us to take the leadership and change it back to the way it should be.”  Video of his comments here.

The daily has an  in-depth report on the email exchanges surrounding the city land deal.

For uttering the politically incorrect statements, his fellow liberals on the City Council — Laura Pastor, Kate Gallego and Daniel Valenzuela — have condemned Nowakowski, as has liberal Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Maricopa County Supervisor Steve Gallardo. He’s been denounced by former supporter James McLaughlin, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 99.

The executive director of the Maricopa County Democrat Party also called for  Nowakowski’s resignation as has Equality Arizona, a homosexual rights group. 

In 2012 Seeing Red AZ  covered Michael Nowakowski’s scheme to have the city issue ID cards to illegal aliens residing in Phoenix.  Although he carries a Polish surname, Nowakowski identifies as Hispanic. Notice that his Hispanic cohorts are the first to call for his resignation.  

There’s no doubt his political days are numbered.
