Lots of Tuckerface in this one.

University Thought Police Interrogate a Dissenter Who Offended a Transgendered.
At about 18:00, the interrogator … in his annoying, condescending, effete academic accent… informs her that free speech is a Nazi belief, and exposing transgendereds and other “marginalized communities” to ideas they don’t like will cause them to commit suicide.
At 25:00 in, the interrogator says that college students are children who need to protected from scary ideas.
At 33:00 he explains how the purpose of the university is to indoctrinate students in approved, politically correct ideas.
Mike Pence made a statement about the American work force that was technically correct (the best kind of correct), but the Washington Post “Fact-Checker” called it a lie because
he’s Mike Pence and we hate him because if you look at it in a certain context it’s … oh, Hell, they called it a lie because they hate Mike Pence. Full stop.
Meanwhile, Liz Warren gets a pass on claiming to be a Native American to take advantage of Affirmative Action hiring policies. No, instead of really examining her claim (which does not stand up to scrutiny), they just call people racist for pointing it out. The Washington Post admits it refuses to fact check Liz Warren’s claim. “We urge readers to look into on their own and decide whether Trump’s attacks over Warren’s background have merit.”
And this is why it’s called ‘The Democrat Media Complex.’
When the Feminists embarked on the strategy of weaponizing “sexual misconduct” allegations to take down “the Patriarchy,” they had in mind men like Clarence Thomas, Roy Moore, Donald Trump, and Bill O’Reilly. I don’t think they imagined that the pile of skulls outside NOW Headquarters would include A-list Hollywood producers and Democrat megadonors, a very liberal Democrat senator, two and perhaps three very left-wing congressmen, and an increasing number of reliably left-wing media figures.
I would predict that — after the Alabama senate election is decided, most definitely not before — we are going to begin to see in the media and the press a call to reconsider the definition of what constitutes sexual misconduct and how allegations of sexual misconduct ought to be handled. We’ve seen some foreshadowing of this in calls to, for example, give Al Franken a break because he’s “one of the good guys.” Maybe there will be a call for a return of the “one-grope rule” that was formulated back in 1998 to help Bill Clinton escape judgment for his own sexual misconduct. The progressive left is going to have to do something to avoid being destroyed by the monster they created when they dumbed down “sexual misconduct” to mean, “He asked me for a date more than once after I refused.”
There is a precedent in American History for a time when it was demanded that due process be cast aside, that “women must be believed,” because the accusations being made were so serious, and so harmful to the community. At the end of this period, 19 people had been executed for witchcraft. I guess you could argue that the approach was a success since nobody in Salem, Massachusetts practiced witchcraft for a long time after that. But when it was over, people began rethinking whether accusations alone were enough to suspend due process, and whether the whole exercise had really been as good an idea as it had seemed in the beginning.
A controversial bill is currently working its way through city hall designed to regulate ‘stop and go’ liquor stores. One part of the bill would force business owners to take down bulletproof glass inside their stores. But at what cost to their safety?
It’s called the ‘Stop and Go’ bill and is being offered by city councilwoman Cindy Bass.
“Right now, the plexiglass has to come down,” she said.
Bass says she’s battling for her constituents.
Oh, she sure is.
Thousands of people who didn’t know what the CFPB was last Thursday are totally up in arms and screeching that for Donald Trump to appoint one of his people to head the agency (which is what presidents do with executive branch agencies) is overthrowing the rule of law, or something.
Likewise, now that PDT has called out Elizabeth Warren for claiming Native American ancestry in order to get Affirmative Action points, a lot of Democrats have decided that Cultural Appropriation is OK under certain circumstances (i.e. When a Democrat does it) and it’s an outrageous racist slur to point out when a Democrat has done so. Suddenly, the white privilege of claiming to be a minority for personal benefit is cool again.
Oh, and also, “Don’t be friends with anyone who doesn’t hate Trump” is an actual thing.
But those people are pikers compared to the Democrat leftists who are having a hissy fit because… I am not making this up… Melania Trump decorated the White House for Christmas.
Forget the Upside Down. The real strangest thing of 2017 is that the White House has chosen to get into the Christmas spirit by making the Presidential residence look like a dark alternate dimension where everything is dying and all hope is lost. I mean, it’s definitely appropriate, but it’s still a bizarre decision.
Such are the wages of Trump derangement; anything that Trump or anyone in his family does sends the left and NeverTrumpers like Bill Kristol and Evan McMuffin into fits of spittle-flecked derangement.
I realized yesterday the PDT doesn’t have a pet, and I think that’s for the best. I’d hate for millions of kittens and puppies to get slaughtered just because Trump-Derangers turned on them.
To be fair, Melania’s White House Christmas décor isn’t to my taste, but then neither was Michelle Obama’s “Suburban Mall on the Verge of Bankruptcy” Christmas look from last year.
Al Franken remains in the Senate.
When your Christmas markets have to be protected by concrete barriers and military style checkpoints, you know that you are enjoying the fruits of a fully realized, multicultural society.
While speaking about John Conyers and Al Franken, two Democrats facing numerous sexual misconduct allegations, Roberts let this bomb matter-of-factly drop on the left-wing Sunday show, “I mean, we all talked about for years: ‘Don’t get in the elevator with him,’ you know, and the whole every-female in the press corps knew that, right, don’t get in elevator with him.”
And here’s a Democrat-Media Complex classic: It’s Republicans fault that Democrats aren’t holding Al Franken and John Conyers accountable.
Yeah, I’m tossing out a sex scandal story so you won’t have to deal with the boring old civic corruption and economics story I posted earlier.
