Wearisome: The Double Standard


Check out Sarah Jeong's hate-filled Tweets HERE.

196 comments:

  1. Divide and destroy. It's what the left does best. Via their dominance of the Infotainment Media Complex and the Education Cartel, they have inculcated this societal vandalism into whole generations.

    6. Alex Jones is a conspiracy Kook. that's how he makes his living. Inflamed tittybaby progs scream for him to be banned because they've been propagandized to hate him, even though most never would have even heard of him had it not been for Leftwing propaganda rage campaigns against him.

      Of course there could be some standard set for censoring speech in public forums, but with Jones and others, they are making it up as they go. *

      It is mob rule maoism.

      * - I don't like Alex Jones, and I don't think he believes his own BS. He has found a very stinky and lucrative pot, and he is stirring it vigorously. That puts him squarely in a long line of muckraking, carnival barking Americans.

    7. Sarah Jeong and her ilk are dangerously mainstream and therefore a much greater threat to our republic than the fringe kook Alex Jones types.

    8. Good points all, SF. However, even if I don't think Jeong should be 'silenced' does she belong on the editorial board of an ostensibly 'great' newspaper? Says mucho about the paper, all the foot shuffling aside.

      Do we ever learn something on Inforwars? Someone sends me links at times, and I've 'found' useful info. But I check it out elsewhere before I park it in my knowledge database. Well, I strolled over there just now, and find that the Wikipedia activists are making sure comments about Jeong's racists remarks stay off her Wikipedia page. So I checked it out. There are, after all, Wikipedia activists who take over pages and mercilessly skew them away from the truth. Not in this case, at least today. Dennis Prager's team used to try to correct factual errors on his page and they were almost immediately re-instated. No amount of communication with the Wiki folks is changing this.

      And yah, we are ALL persons of color when we feel like. How convenient.

  6. I didn't read all the comments above, but I'm in total agreement with Baysider and, particularly, Silverfiddle. Yes, the media hypocrisy is all about 'divide and conquer'...and nobody would have heard of Alex Jones had the left not gone off on him. I remember, years ago, Ducky slamming Jones (and pulling all Republicans into that) and my asking "Who IS he?" I'm still not sure I've heard or read one word of Jones'. They're now doing this with SOCIALISM... Cynthia Nixon having said that Republicans are going to scream "Socialism!" at every Democrat so "we might as well DO socialism"...rendering Socialism just FINE and only a wrong as a figment of Republican imaginations....Making socialism normal is another 'divide and conquer'...and, along with public school teachings, it's got a good chance because, after all, "we just haven't seen it done RIGHT, but America can do it" welcome to Venezuela, Ms Nixon, have a blast.

    11. The foundation of most of Central & South America societies is paternalistic-Roman catholic we'll-take-care-of-you-and-tell-you-what-to-do, so don't-rock-the-boat-or-you-die. The 'we' is church and the landed oligarchy. This is a complete reversal of our founding philosophies and utterly at odds with it.

      I hate it when people bring it HERE when they want to escape from THERE but don't understand why. Then they turn HERE into THERE. (Since we have termites in the Republic who want to do they same they aid and abet their infiltration here by every means possible.)

      I can think of no other reason on God's Green Earth why lovely people willing to work hard, get skilled, work smart and driven to provide for family and community cannot succeed in such resource-rich countries as Mexico and Guatemala, e.g. What an example is Venezuela, yet so many Venezuelans think it's just the corruption, if they only get a better socialist. Corruption hurts, of course, as it restrains energy and enthusiasm to make something out of yourself and lets thuggery rule. But it's NOT the whole story.

      Dennis Prager has gotten many young callers from South America who say "we never heard anything like this [Prager University videos] here." There IS no market-driven, liberty-driven opposition - center right or classic liberal. I've heard several men say "we used to think it was just that Chavez was too corrupt, and if only we could find an un-corrupt one, but now we understand there is another way." Indeed.

      Delete
    12. Your first paragraph doesn't really describe reality there.

      Actually, the oligarchy takes care of itself and doesn't bother to even worry about those less fortunate. Populists who do, do it for their own political gain.

      I hate to say this--and I'll get pounded for it--but in many ways, much of Latin America functions day to day as an anarcho-libertarian society.

      - People there can go months and years enjoying no contact whatsoever with government, and not really being impacted by government, unless things really go off the rails like in Venezuela. Here, we are constantly answering government, begging permission for something, filling out paperwork...

      - People don't trust government or the police, so they band together in families and neighborhood communities and take care of things for themselves, for better or for worse. This contributes to nepotism

      - A job is just a job, rarely with benefits, so entrepreneurship flourishes, from people running full-blown restaurants or business out of their home, to children selling pens, single cigarettes and sticks of gum on the streets.

      To your larger point, which I probably agree with if I understand it: the Spanish came for conquest and exploitation, seeing themselves as an extension of the King and Queen of Spain (actually of Aragon and Castilla).

      The South American revolution of Bolivar, O'Higgins and San Marti came only after the Bourbons took over the Spanish throne. The Criollos had no loyalty to the Bourbons, so they cut ties but the abuse and exploitation continued.

      Precisely because government promises of taking care of everybody remain aspirational, it is a continuing theme with populist demagogues promising to finally deliver on that aspiration.

      Meanwhile, people there take care of themselves, which is why people from there can come here and prosper.

      There are many other factors. The entire continent south of here is shot-through with Marxist rhetoric. While rarely put in practice, Marxism does form the basis of political, economic and social conversations and debate, which in itself explains much of their dysfunction.

    19. Yeah, Silvwrfiddle. "At least he snot Hillary."

      Never mind that the 20 or so other people running for President weren't Hillary either. The key words there are "at least."

      I can respect the bare minimum thinkers among us - whoopee we put off a Hillary / Democrat Presidency for 4 years - but what are we getting "at most?" Is the price of denying Hillary the Oval Office for 4 years worth the long term damage to conservatism and libertarianism Trump is gleefully inflicting?

      Who exactly is Trump rallying. Sure he has his little redoubt of choir members singing "o woe is me" (in some cases, all the way to prison) but outside that impregnable bubble of gormless sycophants, what new appeal is Trump building? He's reduced himself to celebrating that 46% of a small sample of Americans approve of him. Say what you will about Trump's enemies but you can't deny that he's actively cultivating them. Opposition to Trump is growing. Support for Trump is not. I believe a major cause of Trump's lack of support is that all critics - left and right - are lumped together and thrown under the bus. Trump's bus ain't big enough for that.

      Viewed as a team sport, all of the 2018 primary elections (including yesterday's) have seen a massive surge of Democrat voters in states Trump won. Republicans that recieved Trump's kiss of death, I mean endorsement, lost their elections handily. The allegedly "most vulnerable" Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill is going to win so handily I've already bet good money on it. If McCaskill wins, so does every other Democrat running for the Senate this year. It's math. The Senate will flip to a Democrat majority, and the House probably will too.

      But, "at least it snot Hillary." Well yeah, mission accomplished. Hillary lost, now what?

      Oh? That's too principled of a football game? Well huh huh at least Trump totally dominated the coin toss.

    21. Every election is an opportunity, not a solution. I understand the argument that President Trump's election as the Republican president damages conservatism, but let's face it; nobody's done more damage to conservatism than Republicans. They talk free markets, smaller government and balanced budgets, but they do the opposite.

      President Trump does no harm to libertarianism since he's never espoused it and probably doesn't know what it is.

      I have lamented on numerous occasions that he is a vulgar blowhard who delivers truckloads of ammo daily to his growing army of enemies and haters.

      The "At least it snot Hillary" candle doesn't even have a wick to light anymore.

      You said "nobody's done more damage to conservatism than Republicans." I agree, in the sense that they crowned the successes of running hundreds if not a thousand or so Democrats out of office in state and federal elections since 2010 with... Donald Trump.

      It's a sad fact that Barack Obama increased the power and stature of American conservatism and libertarianism more than Trump has - or ever will. Whatever you want to call the "Deep State" - from Obama's IRS targeting conservatives back when Trump was financing Obama's allies to now - none of that has handed a defeat to conservatism or libertarianism quite like the idea that we have to support Trump.

      I've got an idea. Why don't we let Trump supporters pony up the $12 Billion in farm relief that became necessary because of Trump's tariffs? Make America Great on your own dime, left-wing idiot.

    26. Beamish: You're crying over a measly $12 billion? When George Bush and Repubelicons doubled the national debt from 5 to 10 trillion?

      Repubelicons also had their snouts in the trough when Obama almost doubled the national debt again.

      And speaking of hogs and troughs, President Trump is adding around a trillion a year to the national debt, with GOOPers happily joining in on the larceny, so spare us your soggy diaper wailing over a piffling $12 billion.

      See? This is what has happened to conservatives and Republicans. They have no credibility left, and its their own damned fault. They didn't repeal Obamacare, they didn't do jack about illegal immigration, they blew money like wild-eyed democrats and they bloated the federal government. They supported various endless global wars that have consumed over $10 trillion, and they did more damage to "family values" and religion than any rabble of God-hating communists could ever hope to do.

      Actually, President Hillary Clinton would have been a more poignant result. Now the Republican Party is openly hostile to conservatives. Hillary's hand-picked opponent is doing exactly what the left sent him to do.

  15. This is a recent lefting fascist tactic: Identify and attack the enemy. Personally. They are already doing it to ICE agents.

    The philosophy is to get people serving in hated government organizations to quit or turn by threatening them, their property and their loved ones. "We know where you live" can be chilling.

    This was quite effective in fighting corrupt regimes in Latin America. I saw it first hand and heard many more stories.

    As always, our pampered latte leftists here are playacting another time and place that they naively romanticize. 99% of them would soil their dainties if they came up against real government brutality.

  16. About the banning of Alex Jones, from Facebook, YouTube, And Apple Ban Alex Jones. Here's Why They're Dead Wrong:

    ...Trust in social media is declining nearly as fast as trust in media overall. There’s a reason for that. And it’s NOT because social media tolerates voices like Jones. It’s because they don’t tolerate voices like Jones while tolerating voices who are just as bad on the political Left – and they show no signs of limiting their censorship to Alex Jones.

    Read the rest at the above link.

    First they came...

    1. They're still coming....:

      One day after what appeared to be a coordinated attack by media giants Facebook, Apple, Spotify and Google on Alex Jones, whose various social media accounts were banned or suspended in a matter of hours, the crackdown against alternative media figures continued as several Libertarian figures, including the Ron Paul Institute director, found their Twitter accounts suspended.

      On Monday, Twitter suspended the editorial director of antiwar.com Scott Horton, former State Department employee Peter Van Buren, and Dan McAdams, the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute.

    1. That was a good read. Thank you for the link.

      You asked in you comment, what can we do? All we can do is vote. A vote against a Democrat is a vote against the press. Hugh Hewett made the point that the national press is mobilized in Ohio today to actively support the Democrat and defeat the Republican in that congressional election.

      Here is where government wants to go:

      http://reason.com/blog/2018/07/31/democrats-tech-policy-plans-leaked

      Of all the advanced nations, we have the freest speech, and it scares the elites.

      The Infotainment Media Complex, the Government Education Complex and social media have been enfantilizing and propagandizing us for generations. All it will take is a few false-flag operations (or a few more acts of rightwing violence like happened in Charlottesville) and a plurality of people will be clamoring for government to "do something," and those same sheeple will voluntarily give up their rights. The thing of it is, those are not their rights to give up.

  18. On the West Coast, it's become unhinged. Just as a reminder, Google, Blogger, You Tube and Facebook are based in Northern California, so go figure why these kooks banned Alex Jones. And now, The Moonbats in unholywood want to remove Donald Trump's star permanently. And yes, AOW, I decided I'd better stop by after I read your tweet and responded to it. I'm one of your eyes and ears in Southern California. And out of respect for staying calm and cool, I held back from slapping Quackobyrd and Pookie Toot Toot around here. Better that I show self restraint, rather than slap a moonbat around like the goons who took a whack at Donald Trump's star with a pick axe.

  19. Another benefit of electing Donald Trump: The ACLU has abandoned their potemkin "protect all speech" charade. They are only for speech that vandalizes our society, blowtorches our morals and shreds the social fabric of our nation and our values.

    1. What's the ACLU in a position to do?
      A bunch of private companies decide to give Alex Jones the bum's rush. It's not actionable.
      The test would be if Jones somehow brought suit. Would they join the suit but that won't happen.

      So for the time being you'll have to get your chem trail news somewhere else.

    2. It's bigger than that. The unholy agglomeration of leftists, statists and illiberal liberals believes we've hit a tipping point where they can actually drive the daggers in and cut off the air to the "reactionaries."

      This is ultimately about putting any speech opposing progressive statist dogma beyond the pale.

      Wait till they start banning dangerous "anti-science" speech by climate change "deniers."

      Bible-based religion = Hate Speech

      The crafty bastards have already structured the dialog on race, immigration, etc such that any opposition can be damned as racism or ridiculed as "white victimhood."

      The progressive left has always been about shutting down--violently if necessary--those freethinkers who refuse to go along with their master plans.

      It is a sorry development to see so many conservatives taking the same approach.

    4. Here in Missouri, the Trump / Vichy Republican Party financially backed Josh Hawley, a man who consistently loses against Claire McCaskill in head-to-head polling, and he won a plurality with 43% of Republican voters voting for other candidates. Most non-Hawley Missouri Republicans share the same sentiments that Hawley can't beat McCaskill, and that the national Republican Party should not have pumped millions of dollars into Hawley's campaign months before there was even a primary. Hawley was shoved down our throats, near half of Missouri Republicans resent that.

      I believe that Claire McCaskill should thank Trump in her victory speech.

  32. O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me: Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

    O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands; If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:) Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust.

    Arise, O LORD, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded. So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.

    The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me. Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

    My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

    Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
    His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

    I will praise the LORD according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.

    ... Psalm 7 - KJV
