And this is why I call them the MFM.
Addendum. As has been noted, Democrat speeches that characterize America as a racist society, that declare that racist cops are shooting innocent black schoolboys for no reason other than racism, that there is a ‘War on Women,’ or a ‘War on LGBT,’ or a ‘War on immgirants’ are never characterized by the media as “dark.”
The Democrats deploy this rhetoric as an open-faced pitch to low-information voters. Trump is doing the same.

It occurred to me (and it didn’t take much time googling to convince myself) that the thought had come up in 2000.
Dare I dream?
(Naturally, yes, this is a quick flippant thought after an afternoon at the marina having a few rum drinks… But how, otherwise, could things be worse, amirite?)

I don’t know much about Mike Pence, but he was pretty good in ‘Mad Men.’
So, apparently somebody made this. We’re supposed to ignore the fact that this Muslim Democrat cheered for the 9-11-2001 attacks, has a long history of Islamist behavior that includes threatening to murder fellow students because a slice of bacon touched his hamburger, a guy who posted on Facebook “The real Muslims will never accept the filthy ways of the West” and… Oh, yeah, his father is an Islamist that supports the Taliban... and pretend it was all about Teh Ghey. Because ‘The Narrative.’
Omar Mateen was not a closeted gay dude who went to pulse to work out his issues by committing mass murder. The overwhelming evidence is that he was a life-long jihadist who… by the way… called 911 to pledge his loyalty to [omitted] during his mass murder.
Also, he was apparently a Hillary supporter.
The left… and especially the dim-witted gay left… will grasp at any straw to avoid discussing how Obama’s inept and crippled-by-political-correctness FBI let this guy go on three separate occasions.
Very stupid gay people blaming “Donald Trump supporters” for the action of a Muslim Democrat Terrorist.
“[The attack stemmed from] a particular type of culture that is being brought up right now by, for example, the most prominent and visible, Donald Trump supporters,”
“Islam is a religion of peace, even though there is a lot of extremism, there have been no high examples so far in the United States of America that show straight-up LGBT hate, as far as Islam goes.”
I guess you can’t blame them for regurgitating the talking points their Democrat masters feed them.
Actually, yes you can. These people are the stupidest people in all of history.
Once again, the left equates an Islamist murdering four dozen people to Christians who don’t want to bake cakes for gay weddings.
I mean, that has to be the moral equivalence she is making, right? Because actual incidents of real violence perpetrated by observant Christians against homosexuals simply do not happen. Has any Christian, anywhere, ever spotted two dudes making a PDA in Miami and said to himself, “I better drive to Orlando and kill every gay I can find?” Not even the Westboro Baptists advocate violence against gays.
If someone is aware of someone shooting up a gay disco while shouting “Jesus Loves You,” then by all means, correct my assumption.
Update: Oh, Good Lord. She Kept Digging.
Not wanting trannies in my bathroom is the same is murdering a disco full of gay people. Only on the Democrat Left.
This is a picture of my temporary writing nook while we get the church/house organized and redone to something more to our tastes. Pretty cool, huh?
I got nothing else.
Probably because left-wingers already have a decisive inclination toward mental illness (and irrational paranoia that the Christian Theocracy is out to get them), they don’t seem to be handling the prospect of a Donald Trump candidacy very well.
If there is an unofficial capital of psychotherapy, it’s New York’s Upper West Side, where it’s easier to find a therapist than a parking space.
Judith Schweiger Levy, a psychologist in the neighborhood, has noticed a recent uptick in Trump references among her patients, including a middle-aged businesswoman who blurted out this week that her sister is supporting the billionaire.
“She was so upset and worried that she could have a sister — someone so close to her — who would have zero problem with Trump,” Levy said. “Another patient — also a woman — all she could talk about was Trump and how he’s crazy and frightening.”
Ruminating on Trump’s effect, Levy said, “Part of the reason he makes people so anxious is that he has no anxiety himself. It’s frightening. I’m starting to feel anxious just talking about him.”
When Conservatives consider the prospect of a Hillary presidency, many will prepare for more repressive gun laws by buying guns and stocking up on ammunition before the State makes it harder. And we make plans to dig in with our families and friends and just ride out the next four years of corruption and batscat crazy radical leftism, just as we’ve ridden out the last eight.
We don’t go whining to psychotherapists.
I am also thinking of all the left-wingers vowing to leave the country is Trump is elected, a list that so far includes Al Sharpton, Raven Symone, Miley Cyrus, Cher, Jon Stewart, Rosie O’Donnell and a whole bunch of dotty leftists who say they will but really won’t when they find out their EBT cards don’t work in Canada. And why do they always swear they’re fleeing to Canada? Why not Mexico? Isn’t that kinda racist?
The bizarre Queers for Palestine and their deranged sisters at Code Pink will not be able to make sense of this: A gay Iranian poet is leaving the Islamic Republic of Iran (a country governed entirely by clerics of the Religion of Peace) and is seeking to live in the Zionist Entity (the source of all evil and oppression).
Three months ago Israel granted a temporary visa to Iranian poet Payam Feilli. It was then that Feilli’s personal hell came to an end. After decades of persecution, the poet finally made it to only place he could ever imagine living outside of his native Iran.
Feilli, who is openly gay, fled to Turkey in 2014 after getting blacklisted and detained by Iran’s morality militia. Today Feilli is safely ensconced in the Israeli metropolis of Tel Aviv where he can publish his writings without the threat of censorship or intimidation.
In 2011, he was arrested the first of three times. The first two he was detained by plainclothes agents for nearly a month, and the third lasted for 44 days. That last began in February 2014: He was at home alone when three bearded men forced their way into his house, wrapped him in tape, blindfolded him, and brought him to a garden where he was kept in a shipping container.
In fairness, the oppression he faced in Iran pales next to the trauma faced by gay special snowflakes when Milo Yiannopoulos criticizes feminism.
Apparently, Ted Cruz’s comment about “New York Values” has sent New Yorkers into full-on pearl-clutching, fainting-couch hysteria.
Google news lists over 9,000 articles about Ted Cruz’s “New York Values” remark. Saturday Night Live (a late-night comedy show on NBC for any readers born after 1985) devoted a sketch to it.
And all along we were supposed to believe you guys were tough?
First of all, people who elected Bill de Blasio, Anthony Weiner, Chuck Schmer, Andrew Cuomo, Hillary Clinton, and Michael Bloomberg to office have no reason to complain when someone says their values are way more to the left than those of most Americans.
New Yorkers actually banned guns and big sodas… tell us again how mainstream they are compared with the rest of America?
I guess New Yorkers just aren’t emotionally equipped to handle the disdain they constantly dish out toward “Flyover Country.”
Christmas is another occasion to remind ourselves, Progressive Leftists are miserable bastards and they want you to be miserable, too.
As for me, I will be happy to spend Christmas with that family that some deranged commenters think loathe and hate me. I hope the GayPatriot roundtable will also be spending Christmas with the families that leftists think hate and despise them as well.
A certain blogger of the left has published what he considers an appalling collection of Tweets by conservatives (and David Frum) commenting on the Paris Massacre. (Screencaps after break.) Needless to say, there’s not a one among them I disagree with.
FWIW, my guess is that the number of Christians offended by Starbucks cups is far, far smaller than the number of leftists who were outraged because a fictional character raped another fictional character on a TV show whose trademark is sex and violence. In fact, it looks like a single attention whore is behind whatever controversy there may be.
This story is very little more than hype, driven by the secular media and left-wing websites like Buzzfeed so they can say, “Oh, look how crazy and thin-skinned Christians are.” It also helps trivialize legitimate assaults on religious freedom.
Also, Starbucks coffee is mediocre and overpriced. And the cups look like the Solo cups they play beer pong with at frat parties.
ManBearPig may not be the winning issue progressive Democrats think it is.
The faith-based climate rally that took place Thursday in Washington drew a much smaller crowd than anticipated, though organizers say they still managed to convey their message. The Moral Action on Climate Justice network, which worked with the Earth Day Network, League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club. Friends of of the Earth and other groups to organize the event, originally asked the National Park Service for a permit for 50,000 attendees. But Park Service countered the permit should be closer to 200,000, organizers said, given the popularity of Pope Francis. In the end, according to several observers, the overall attendance was closer to 2,000.
Think Progress — which is published by the liberal think tank Center for American Progress — estimated there were “hundreds of activists” on the Mall for the event, which started early Friday.
The tragedy of 9-11-2001 is an object lesson in the failure of Government.
The Government failed to prevent the Terrorist Attack (are we still allowed to call it a terror attack? Or is it random violence now?) because the massive Federal bureaucracies that have been massively funded to prevent this event massively failed.
The bureaucracy knew that foreign Mohammedans were taking flight lessons in preparation for the attack, but did nothing; in part because of Clinton-Era policies that prevented intelligence agencies from sharing information, and politically correct aversion to “racial profiling.”
The bureaucracy had been aware that Mohammedan terrorists had been planning exactly this type of attack since the mid 1990′s, and had alerted the Clinton administration to this in 1998. But nothing was done to prevent it.
The terrorists came to the USA on business and tourist visas, and were not tracked down after their visas expired. In effect, the terrorists were illegal immigrants. And the bureaucracy… which should have tracked down and deported them, did nothing.
On the morning of 9-11-2001, the terrorists waltzed through airport security without a single challenge or alarm being raised and then carried out their diabolical scheme.
The Lesson of 9-11 is that the Government failed; and the only successful anti-terrorist actions that day were taken by private citizens aboard United Airlines Flight 93.
I would answer that it’s partly because Americans are a fair people, and we don’t want to blame an entire people for the actions of a deranged minority; however broadly sympathetic the rest of that people might be toward their actions.
However, we have also been cowed by the elite political and media classes, who find it crass and vulgar to suggest that there may be a streak of conquest and depravity woven into the fabric of Mohammedism. Our “betters” tell us we must turn a blind eye to violence when it committed by “historically oppressed” and “disenfranchised” groups; and reserve all of our hatred for Republicans, Christians, southerners, successful businessmen, and cops.
Increasing numbers of law school graduates fail the bar exam. Increasing numbers of law school graduates fail the bar exam. Bar Examiners tell law schools to do a better job preparing their graduates. Law schools respond, “Your letter suggesting our graduates are not prepared for the exam offends us and hurts our feelings. We demand apologeez!” Hilarity ensues.
