The one narrative that excites Democrats more than calling Republicans bigots is calling them a threat to Democracy. This time, that excitement backfired.

Ai Weiwei, an activist, artist, and former political prisoner in China, has first-hand experience with the brutality of an authoritarian regime.

He was invited onto Firing Line to discuss his book, 1000 Years of Joys and Sorrows, which includes this paragraph in its description.

Once an intimate of Mao Zedong, Ai Weiwei’s father was branded a rightist during the Cultural Revolution, and he and his family were banished to a desolate place known as “Little Siberia,” where Ai Qing was sentenced to hard labor cleaning public toilets. Ai Weiwei recounts his childhood in exile, and his difficult decision to leave his family to study art in America, where he befriended Allen Ginsberg and was inspired by Andy Warhol. With candor and wit, he details his return to China and his rise from artistic unknown to art world superstar and international human rights activist—and how his work has been shaped by living under a totalitarian regime. – BarnesAndNoble

In preparing for this interview, Margaret Hoover came across a reference to a Trump tweet that she was unable to resist. It led her to ask Ai Weiwei directly if he saw the President as an authoritarian.

If she was hoping to have her guest help her take a swipe at Trump, she was sadly mistaken.

Little did she realize that she was lobbing him a softball question that would be an absolutely devastating indictment of how the Democrats have been conducting themselves, and using the power that they now hold.

Somewhere out there, Trump is laughing at her.

Even with his Twitter account shut down, his tweets are STILL finding a way to own the Libs.

You gotta hand it to him, that’s a whole other level of trolling.

If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
