Now that it has dawned on most of the leftwing opponents of President Trump that removing him from office via impeachment or the 25th amendment is very unlikely, what is left for them? Well, Jo Confino of the Huffington Post recommends consulting the writings of a Zen master for advice. Unfortunately, the recommendations offer little solace for the exceedingly angry diehard leftists as we shall see:
According to the liberal media and Hollywood, the president’s new Supreme Court pick can be defined as “anti-choice” and “mentally unbalanced.”
During MSNBC's Friday coverage of the inauguration, Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow played up a report from the Huffington Post claiming that President Trump's transition team requested military hardware for the inaugural parade. Matthews wondered, "Wouldn't that look like a little shades of Pyongyang?" Maddow added, "It would be a little Red Square to do that." Minutes later, Maddow revisited the supposed request for a "Red Square-style show of military force," and lamented, "It's embarrassing — to be the only president with no public service or military experience being the one who wants to most show off the military."
The Women’s March on Washington’s message could not be clearer: “women” does not include pro-life women or women in the womb.
It’s an opening line that’s compelled generations of teens: “When I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and cruising for dudes ...”
Climate scientist Dr. Judith Curry has had enough of academics politicizing her field. She’s leaving academia for the private sector, which she said on Jan. 3, “seems like a more ‘honest’ place for a scientist working in a politicized field than universities or government labs.” Curry resigned her tenured position as of Jan. 1, with “no intention of seeking another academic” position in a university or government agency.
Now even the price of razors is sexist, according to one Huffington Post UK editor. Associate Women’s Editor Jenavieve Hatch applauded a British supermarket chain Tesco for lowering the price of women’s razors to that of men’s on Jan. 3, cheering, “More of this, please!”
One liberal academic argued for censorship of politicians who dissent from liberal orthodoxy on climate change. History professor at California State University, Sacramento Joseph A. Palermo argued President-Elect Donald Trump should not be able to use Twitter.
Nobody expects objectivity from The Huffington Post – not after a presidential campaign in which every Trump story carried a nasty “disclaimer” that Trump “regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther.” But now they’re warning Trump not to touch federal subsidies for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business.
“Senior politics reporter” Laura Bassett acts as the abortion conglomerate’s publicist in a story headlined “Some Trump Voters Will Be ‘Pissed Off As Hell’ If He Defunds Planned Parenthood.”
Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!) Call it high anxiety or mass psychosis, but the alt-left has taken the idea of poor losers to new heights (or lows). Everywhere you look, they continue the National Freakout.
Sunday afternoon, Eric Shawn of Fox News interviewed former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton. By his reactions to what Bolton said near the interview's beginning, Shawn misunderstood the meaning of "false flag operation," apparently believing that every such effort has to be originated by the government leveling a charge of nefarious behavior against another, in this case the U.S. against Russia. That's not what it means. Though Bolton clarified his statement later in the interview, news outlets which should know better and opportunistic lefty bloggers have seized the opening to contend that Bolton has directly accused the Obama administration of conducting the "false flag operation." That's not what he said.
The Washington Examiner’s T. Becket Adams exposed on Tuesday morning in a series of tweets the very problem that besets a liberal media obsessed with placing legitimate conservative sites into the sphere of the fake news when a number of journalists chided Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for comments at CPAC 2014 regarding school lunches thanks to a dishonest hatchet job by Time magazine.
