The Liberal Left is always trying to defend the right to free speech, or claim that others are violating their rights to it, even as they try to censor and shut down views that are not consistent with theirs.
They spout love and tolerance as they crush their opposition with ridiculous acts and hateful rants that make no sense, neither do they serve to change the mindset of those who disagree with them.
They want to do as Maxine Waters has bid them and try to disrupt and destroy anyone who is part of Trump’s administration or family.
Ivanka Trump was the latest victim of the left as she posed for a photograph with an evangelical pastor at a White House dinner. This pastor is one who supports marriage between a man and woman.
Now that the picture is made, let the nastiness begin, calling her everything that is ugly and unholy. The Alt Left took to Twitter and other forms of social media to express their displeasure.
The overall point was that Ivanka has to be a total hypocrite who certainly COULD NOT support LGBT anymore as she has professed, because she stands politely with a traitor to all that LGBT stands for, et cetera, and blah, blah blah.
The fact that people can believe one thing, yet be sympathetic and compassionate for others isn’t a concept that these detractors can grasp, as they are not interested in equal rights, they want special rights and ALL the attention to validate their way of life. The world must be given total exposure to their opinions, practices and beliefs, and must applaud strongly, validate and even congratulate them in choosing another life path.
Maybe she subscribes to live and let live. Those who want special rights can’t accept that as they would just have to exist without drama.
This woman is criticized for her role in trying to help and support working women as well, since her father does this and that therefore, she has to be disingenuous.
Another victim is Ron De Santis. He is running for Governor in the State of Florida against an opponent who happens to be an African American.
Mr. De Santis was giving a speech where he cited how well things were going economically in the state of Florida. He asked the citizens of Florida not to “monkey this up.”
Everyone was up in butt-hurt arms that he had used “monkey” as a derogatory reference to his opponent.
Perhaps he should have just dropped the F- Bomb. Then he would only be accused of being profane, or maybe no one would notice or care. That would probably be better as he could just say, “Sorry, excuse my French.”
The informal definition of “Monkey”, as a verb, according to The Free Dictionary.com (https://www.thefreedictionary.com/monkey) is as follows:
“To play, fiddle or trifle with something.
That was his meaning. Don’t mess up the good life and prosperity. It had nothing to do with the color of his opponent.
Even Fox News took umbrage with DeSantis until he clarified the comment.
Today everyone has a special agenda and it makes them as sensitive as a person with a third degree burn.
Somehow, they have gotten the idea that every thought and action is so important that the world has to stop and hear them sobbing about the mistreatment of it all. Hollywood is most guilty of this idea.
This one sided, looking for fault in everything and everyone Conservative has extended to social media.
President Trump accused Google as being “rigged” and Facebook has also faced extreme criticism for changing its format to suppress all things Trump and Conservative.
YouTube, (owned by Google) has banned controversial Alex Jones from his show on their venue, citing graphic violence and hate.
Twitter banned him for seven days as well.
One might think, so what? Isn’t he just a conspiracy theory nut?
Whether one agrees with anything he says or not, suppression of his First Amendment rights is a very scary thing.
If the powers that be are allowed to come after Alex Jones, what is to stop them from coming after anyone?
This is a horrifying precedent that needs to be stopped NOW!
