I hate to find undue philosophy in pop songs, but sometimes it’s applicable. No, I’m not referring to the lyrics of “Like A Virgin” and imagine that the underage denizens brought on board the Lolita Express to service Hillary Clinton’s husband were singing along with Madonna “gonna give you all my love boy…like a virgin, touched for the very first time” as Bill reached for his cigar.
R.E.M.s “Begin the begin” features a really unique lyric, “silence means approval.”
In the past week or so a Congressman was gunned down and the Bernie Bro that did it had a hit list of others he hoped to politically assassinate. Before the shooting, Hollywood’s cup runneth over with references to Trump’s assassination. After the shooting, New York’s Shakespeare in the park – in about as unoriginal a concept as you can get – portrayed President Trump as Caesar complete with the Ides of March assassination. And Johnny Depp went overseas to call for Trump’s assassination before a cheering crowd in a stunt to boost his pathetic brand.
Hillary didn’t say a word.
Barack Obama didn’t say a word.
Because silence means approval.
Hillary and Obama did comment on healthcare reform. They may have commented on other things. Neither Hillary or Obama emerged from the shadows where they hide out with illegal, I mean undocumented, immigrants to call for calm. Peace. Unity. Or even just to say “can’t we all just get along.”
That would be too much to ask of the Queen and King of the Resistance. Toning down the rhetoric would be like Jeffrey Epstein telling Bill to take it easy or else they might have to land earlier than expected in Port Au Prince. You know, Port Au Prince. Haiti. The same Haiti the Clinton Foundation was all about helping out.
The same Haiti Haitians will tell you the Clintons screwed over by coming down for photo ops to surround themselves with brown people while raking in millions at the expense of the poorest people in our hemisphere.
When Democrats aren’t hate mongering they are race baiting. They even used race to try and explain away the Congressman Scalise shooting. Go ahead, check out the comments section on any given media item about the shooting. You’ll find some asshat in the threads that equates the shooting with Scalise once speaking at some alleged David Duke event a long time ago.
In a culture of groupthink, the left has come to believe that any thought – even objectionable thoughts like those of David Duke – they don’t accept is suitable grounds for violence and murder. In the past week there have even been leftist media items that claimed Otto Warmbier’s death wasn’t a tragedy but rather justified because white Otto Warmbier learned what black people in America endure each day in America.
A ridiculous assertion, of course. I’m pretty sure Otto Warmbier didn’t spent his confinement in North Korea forced to wear ill-fitting jeans with the waist band just above his knees, an oversize ballcap backwards on his head, use the n- word frequently, and be the baby daddy for his shorty while collecting welfare checks on the first and fifteenth.
I’m pretty sure Otto Warmbier’s last year or so on this planet were more horrible than anyone can imagine. Torture was probably physical and psychological. Nothing of the sort is going on in America against black people today, no matter how many movies we make about Selma in 1965.
1965 was 52 years ago by the way.
Today’s America simply isn’t a racist country. If it were, how is it that, instead of a prison sentence, Bill Cosby in the past week emerged as a spokesman against sexual violence. That would be kind of like Hillary Clinton emerging as a champion for women’s rights after destroying the reputations of women aged 12 and up in order to acquire power.
And yet the media remains silent. Because silence means approval.
