Alt-Left Insanity: Alleged News Organization Celebrates Orgy ‘Sex Tips’

Thu, 10/19/2017 - 13:48
<p>I have a hate/hate relationship with BuzzFeed. On one hand, I think it posts a lot of useless garbage that I almost never find even the slightest bit interesting. On the other, it also produces strongly biased pseudo journalism, yet gets credentialed by the media because it’s left-wing.</p> <p>You’ll see BuzzFeed staff all over cable and quoted like it’s a respectable journalistic entity. Then you look on the site and discover videos like, “When You Get Stabbed By A Pencil,” or “Drag Queens Play Never Have I Ever.” Or maybe you’ll see one of BuzzFeed’s classic quizzes, such as, “Can You Remember The "Teen Wolf" Pilot Correctly?” or “Answer Eight Questions And We'll Accurately Guess Your Age.” (It guessed me at 16-18. The Internet didn’t exist when that was true.)</p>

'Designated Survivor' Champions Liberal Views on Gun Control, Racism, Amnesty, and Trump

Thu, 10/19/2017 - 05:43
<p>Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s <em>Designated Survivor</em> was inspired by last episode’s hour of liberal propaganda and followed suit, jam-packing itself with liberal politics. Tonight’s episode, “Equilibrium,” touched on gun control, racism, and border relations. American truckers form a blockade on the Mexican-American border to protest trade negotiations between the two countries. Cue the caricaturized chants of “Hell no, Mexico! Your lousy junk has got to go!” and “I'm sick and tired of Mexico stealing our jobs and taking our money!</p>

Or do Pai's words underline that this entire controversy was the cliched nothingburger? Pick B. </p>

Thu, 10/19/2017 - 02:15
<p>During Wednesday’s edition of HLN's <em>Unfiltered</em>, host S.E.

If you're not also asking: Why they are now gold star families,” she lamented to her panel.</p>

WashPost Blogger: 'Being Patriotic Means Being White'

Thu, 10/19/2017 - 01:31
<p>Even though President Donald Trump has tweeted that National Football League players taking a knee instead of standing during the National Anthem “has nothing to do with race” but is “about respect for our country, flag and National Anthem,” <em>Washington Post</em>  "Monkey Cage" blogger Michael Tesler claimed the opposite: “To many Americans, being patriotic means being white.” Tesler, an associate professor of political science at the University of California at Irvine, went so far as to assert that “American patriotism has always been racialized” and stated that there is “more new evidence that whiteness and American patriotism are deeply linked.”</p>

Beware the Rape Allegation Bandwagon

Wed, 10/18/2017 - 21:46
<p>"#MeToo" is the social media meme of the moment. In a 24-hour period, the phrase was tweeted nearly a half million times and posted on Facebook 12 million times.

Wed, 10/18/2017 - 21:44

Let's look at who pays what, with an eye toward attempting to answer this question: Are the rich paying their fair share?</p>

Sneaky: NYT’s Sex Harassment History Hails Anita Hill, Whacks Trump, Ailes...Skips Bill Clinton

Wed, 10/18/2017 - 21:37
<p>“Do We Believe Women? Nation Takes Fresh Look At Sexual Harassment,” was the headline and the question posed by reporter Clyde Haberman in Wednesday’s <em>New York Times</em> . But that promised “look” at harassment in business and politics focused only on one side of the political aisle. The print version included an archive photo of Anita Hill from the 1991 U.S. Senate hearings regarding then-Supreme Court conservative nominee Clarence Thomas. Haberman cynically skipped from Republican-nominated Judge Thomas to the late Fox News Channel chairman Roger Ailes, with President Trump and Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and Roger Ailes also mentioned. President Bill Clinton and his scandalous sex history was utterly ignored.</p>
