On Griffin 2

This little piece on Jim Carrey’s and Rosie O’Donnell’s reactions to the Kathy Griffin mess demonstrates the utter depravity of the cultural liberal.

Carrey said, “I think it is the job of a comedian to cross the line at all times — because that line is not real.” I’m not sure how one crosses an unreal line… but, Mr. Carrey, the job of a comedian is to be funny. That might involve crossing some line but it usually doesn’t. Someone whose sole job is to “cross the line” is a provocateur.

He added the utterly predictable liberal masturbation, “We’re the last line of defense. And really, the comedians are the last voice of truth in this whole thing.” Oy, if there are two things about comedians, it’s that they are not the last line of defense nor ever the last voice of truth.

Jim Carrey is a funny guy (usually) but he thinks far too much of himself.

As for Rosie O’Donnell – she preferred to reference Barron Trump and the maniac in Portland that stabbed two people while harassing two women. She blamed that on Donald Trump. Apparently Rosie missed the discovery that the attacker was a Bernie Sanders supporter (along with having a screw loose, but then that goes without saying). Hey, Rosie, aren’t you sweet on Bernie, too?

All of which leads me to that Portland story. Rosie’s ignorance of the facts of the case might have to do with the fact that the story disappeared out of the mainstream media as soon as it was revealed that the killer was a Sanders and Jill Stein supporter. Since those facts didn’t appear in the NYT, WaPo, AP, CNN, MSNBC, mainstream TV, et al, as they were contrary to the approved meme it was impossible for her to know her talking points. The last she had heard were the first reports, “White supremacist kills two…” and they eagerly, giddily hinted that we had another Dylann Roof. That’s where she is stuck – parrots have to be retrained when new things come along.

It’s not an accident that the story went down the MSM’s Orwellian memory hole. The MSM is a propaganda organ and anything contrary to the approved memes can’t be “news.” They should be ashamed of themselves but as we’ve learned, the liberal has no shame.

Mercy For Griffin

Yeah, that’s a tough one and though she doesn’t deserve it but I’m actually advocating some mercy for “Comedienne” Kathy Griffin after her foolish participation in some “performance art” featuring a fake severed Donald Trump.

Performance art has long been a scam. Was it ever anything else? It’s been the forum of the talentless and angry.

I have little doubt that Griffin’s apology is probably more motivated by the backlash and sudden realization of the mortality of her own career than any heartfelt understanding that what she did really was wrong.

She’s been a long-time twisted liberal hatchetwoman, little different than so many TV comics. That she’s found a home on CNN for so long tells you about where there head is.

Having said all that, I do advocate some mercy for her.

Our society, led by the liberal cultural commissars, has become vicious often seeking metaphorical bloodsport, in destroying people’s careers over the slightest “outrageous” transgression. Liberals love to seek and be “outraged.” There are times when it seems all that liberals live for is to be “outraged” by something.

Conservatives are used to this as they are the ones usually on the receiving end of these outrage fits.

The list of folks whose careers were dented or destroyed over some “outrageous” comment

My response on all of this is for people to lighten up and get a sense of humor.

Yeah, there was no humor involved in this incident but performers like Griffin need some latitude for the occasional faceplant. ALL performers need this.

Comics do go too far sometimes. It’s what many do and ideally they learn.

On the other hand, she has repeatedly demonstrated she is a horrible person so she should have some humility. I’m not advocating she go tearfully onto the Ellen or Oprah shows (and give one of those nonapology apologies) but it would be nice to see real contrition. Maybe an afternoon in some stocks in a public square in a Texas town and children pelting her with rotten fruit and vegetables – on live TV. For charity, of course.

Griffin is so illustrative how far out the American left is. How easily “Death to Trump” rolls off their tongues.

Imagine if this was a conservative comic – there are a few out there but they don’t get big-time jobs on TV like a low-rent comic like Griffin gets. But imagine the nuclear holocaust that would have been visited on, say, Steve Crowder if he’d displayed a plastic head of Obama. The energy radiated alone in vaporizing him would have raised the Earth’s surface temperature by a couple of degrees. Every Republican on the planet would have been asked/required to denounce him… Remember how “everyone” went ape poop when a cartoonist had Obama as an organ grinder’s monkey? Oy!

Yeah, it’s not fair but we’ve become a hypersensitized society and that only plays into the hands of the liberals.

An Example of Libtard Arrogance

I’ve been meaning to write a blurb on the Matt Damon/Stella Artois (Interbrew) commercial/PSA about the “global water crisis.”

Yeah, despite all those glaciers melting and the seas rising, soon to overwhelm New York City, there’s a shortage of water in some places.

They usually call those places deserts and the third-world. Making sure you have a steady supply of clean water is a sure sign of a modern, competent civilization.

Anyway, the company touts its efforts to get clean, fresh water to women (not to men? Aren’t they thirsty too?). It’s kind of a well-meaning program and would certainly be commendable as a stop-gap for emergencies.

The thing that gets me is Matt’s close: “We can be the generation that ends the global water crisis.”

Wow, that’s a big goal.

I like big thinking but, somehow, I doubt handing out water bottles individually is really going to end the “global water crisis.” Certainly not in the next few years.

The lack of even distribution of water resources has been a problem for quite a long time.

Depending on the location, there are only a few easily identified conditions causing a water problem.

It’s usually a lack of precipitation, cultural dysfunction, poor government or a mixture of those.

This is yet another example of the arrogant libtard’s strange fantasy world. A world where they can will things that have failed others. They are sure they can undo King Canute’s point that there are things beyond man’s control.

It’s like the endless “causes” they are obsessed with; that seem to make up their whole life. It’s always just a matter of throwing money at a problem, wearing a ribbon, walking a few miles, lighting a candle, signing a petition, going to an event, visiting a website, being really, really, really concerned. If we just perform one of more of these rituals, the cause will magically be resolved.

We can cure X or stop Y if we just try; as if people hadn’t tried before (and the libtard, in another display of their patented arrogant ignorance, is usually sure that no one ever did try until he came along).

The arrogance and conceit of these people is monumental and they are completely oblivious to it.

I would love to get some odds from Damon on ending that water crisis.

No More ISIL

Hey, notice something?

There’s no more “ISIL.”

Not that they’ve been exterminated (IF ONLY!) but no one seems to be calling ISIS ISIL any longer.

If you remember, like a snotty college sophomore trying to demonstrate his college smarts at Thanksgiving, The One, AKA Otard the Malignant, AKA Pres. Barack Obama, called ISIS ISIL (while also describing them as ‘The J.V.’). He was wrong on both counts.

Anyway, now they seem to get described everywhere as ISIS.

And speaking of ISIS, in the wake of the Manchester bombing, there is the dawning realization that our intellectual and political leaders, seemingly on both sides of the aisle (other than Trump), are simply incapable of embarking upon a solution — “Buck up,” is their turn the cheek advice. Rather Chamberlain-like (a decent man completely inappropriate for the time).

Libtards, Democrats, socialists, Millennials, all do don’t understand that the Islamofascists are not guiltable, they don’t care about political correctness, they aren’t cowed by cries of “racism,” “bigot,” or “sexist.” They’ll still pull the trigger.

All those candles, Teddy Bears, flowers, moments of silence, hashtags, etc. won’t do a thing. If anything the terrorists are encouraged by such a patronizing response. Hey, Michelle Obama, Jen Psaki, et al, how’d that #bringbackourgirls hashtag work out in Nigeria? Yeah, it didn’t move the dial a hair, did it?

But that never was the point, was it?

Surprisingly, Muslim terrorists don’t subscribe to the symbology that makes college kids, celebrities, cultural commissars, elite bureaucrats, Democrats and European socialists, et al, all gooey. The libtards simply wanted to feel good about themselves that they were “doing something.” And, most importantly, signal their virtue to each other. They could look like they were doing something when, in reality, they never intended to do anything but they felt awesome and superior to those who actually want to get their hands dirty and really do something that might involve breaking some windows, or some people.

BTW, how did they get to be “Our” girls?

The inimitable prophet Mark Steyn nails it in “‘Dangerous Woman’” Meets Dangerous Man.”

He taps into our absurd culture where a cupcake like former Nickelodeon child star Ariana Grande is ever-so-“dangerous,” all the while ignoring actually, really dangerous people like Muslim extremists who blow up themselves and other people at music concerts.

Of course Ariana is “dangerous” in a cool, sexy, politically correct female empowering way. Kinda not really dangerous at all but pretend “dangerous” so everyone can enjoy being “dangerous” without having to go all Machine Gun Kelly or break any laws.

In the mind of the modern liberal the only really dangerous (and divisive, hateful and oppressive…) people are, and “everyone agrees,” Donald Trump and his supporters.

You just keep telling yourself that, Millennial Pajama Boy and female pugilist punching a bag in a panty hose commercial. That’ll go over well as they puzzle over whether the Muslim terrorist holding a gun to their heads is going to pull the trigger. They won’t have to puzzle long (and as they descended to their eternal fate they still wouldn’t admit they were wrong).

Funny How These Things Happen

You might have heard, how could you miss it, that “Fox News Host Bob Beckel” or just “Fox News Host” was “Fired Over Racially Insensitive Remarks.”

You couldn’t miss the “Fox News” part.

Of course this could have just as accurately been “Former Mondale Campaign Manager…”

Yeah, Beckel is a Democrat and was Walter Mondale’s 1984 presidential campaign manager but somehow that never seems to get mentioned or is buried on paragraph 48. Funny how those things happen in the media…

Payback

Now that the president has succumbed to Beltway demands and become subject to a “Special Counsel” investigation, it is time he got back onto the offensive.

I’m not talking about legislation like tax reform (though that would be good) nor am I talking about draining the swamp (thought that would be good too).

I’m talking about payback.

Time to get a “Special Counsel” to look into Hillary Clinton’s email server? Why did the FBI hand out immunity grants like they were acid tabs at a Grateful Dead concert? And what about that Clinton Foundation and all those juicy donations?

Lois Lerner is still a free woman. Now that Republicans are putatively in control of the records perhaps something can be found that wasn’t destroyed. Hey, how about looking into all that act of destroying the evidence?

Let’s make public some of the Washington communications that took place during the night of Benghazi? Exactly what did Washington know and what did they tell the military and the folks in Benghazi. I’m sure it’s quite embarrassing to people with initials like BHO and HRC.

There’s probably some creepy stuff concerning Obama’s desire to make Iran a world power.

On the Russian front, why did the FBI let the DNC withhold its servers concerning the “hacked” emails and allow the DNC to dictate the results of a sham investigation rather than analyze the servers themselves. What are the odds that the Wikileaks material were an inside job (Seth Rich???). Inquiring minds want to know.

How about releasing some intraagency emails concerning Fast & Furious? Hijinks at the EPA? The plottings of the Mordor that is the DOJ’s Office of “Civil Rights”? Ditto the Dept. of Educations same office? Who organized the National Park Service cops to shut down America’s monuments during the government shutdown? I’m sure there’s lots of fun things from the National Labor Relations Board (run by the DNC’s new guy, Tom Perez)?

Frankly, the Democrats have a lot more to hide than Trump. It’s time to fight fire with fire. The Democrats need to be carpet-bombed with their own words and deviousness. Expose their cynicism and craven power-grabbing; their arrogance and disdain for the American people. Their willingness to destroy the country in the desire for ultimate power and certainly destroy it if they can’t rule it.

Like a jilted lover they have the mentality that if they can’t have it, no one can.

They’ve opened the box, it’s time to turn the tables.

Trump should be like Kurt Russell’s Wyatt Earp in “Tombstone” when he has Ike Clanton on the ground at the Tucson train station. “You tell all the other curs, the law’s coming… You tell them I’m coming and Hell’s coming with me.”

A Yuuuuge Mistake

The appointment of “Special Counsel” Robert Mueller by Rod Rosenstein, the point man at the Dept. of Justice for the “Russia Collusion” scam, was a mistake of unfathomable enormity; or to use a favorite Trumpism, a “yuge” mistake.

Weak-kneed GOPe-types are applauding the decision thinking that this somehow neutralizes the issue and will eventually disarm the issue by exposing it for the sham it always was.

Charlie Brown kicking that football Lucy held was also a weak-kneed Republican with complete faith in a sham.

This is nothing more than signing a long-term 20-year lease on a property in a city where you plan to live for only 5 years…

Have these people learned nothing over the decades of “Special Whatever” investigations?

When has any one of these actually performed as advertised?

They always follow the same pattern. They take too long, become fishing expeditions along with roaming far afield, cost too much and become political footballs. They can leak like sieves when Republicans are targeted and in the end they usually get it wrong — just ask Scooter Libby.

The lawyers/investigators working on them use them not as jobs to be done conscientiously and quickly but rather cushy sinecures and stepping stones to bigger Washington law firms, corporate/Wall Street jobs or politics.

We are about to be subjected to four years of leaks to favored reporters at the Washington Post, N.Y. Times, A.P., network news or CNN. We’ll hear usually meaningless microdetails couched in the most histrionic, hyperventilating and hysterical language while the whole procedure moves at a snail’s pace. The media likes and wants it that way, Democrat politicians want it that way and the Special Counsel Office wants it that way. So it will be that way.

Drip, drip, drip.

And Trump will get increasingly frustrated by the whole silliness of the circus. People don’t do things that way in business but they do it way in Washington.

Eventually Mueller, who may not last the full term, will feel compelled to justify his whole high-priced phony-baloney expedition by bringing home a scalp, anyone’s scalp (as long as it’s a Republican scalp — just ask Scooter Libby).

Drain the swamp before the swamp creatures devour you, Mr. President.

BTW, what more can there be at this point that the FBI doesn’t already know or has an idea about?

Oh, will Mueller look into the Seth Rich angle? Yeah, I didn’t think so, Democrats would disapprove, that would disrupt this master scam they’re running.

Because someone had to say it
