The editor-at-large of Esquire magazine flat out declares he wants to ban all guns. Liberals always seem to be declaring they only want bans or restrictions on certain types of guns. Added to that is their declaration of support for the Second Amendment. However, once in a while, one of those liberals lets their mask drop and makes their true intention known.
For the liberal media, the only real problem for America when came to gun violence was that pesky Second Amendment and your access to firearms. And while they talked a good game about an “all of the above” solution, their only goal was to restrict your rights. A grade-A example of this kind of attitude was on display Sunday during ABC’s This Week, where host George Stephanopoulos grilled Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick about gun control for his state while ignoring Patrick’s point regarding the devaluation of life by our culture.
CBS’s The Good Fight continues to push its liberal agenda unashamedly. Sunday’s episode likened President Trump’s immigration policy to the Holocaust, touted sanctuary cities, and showcased a nude photo of First Lady Melania Trump.
There was another tragic shooting by a disturbed person, which means it’s another opportunity for the liberal media to call for the government to take your guns away. But with the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting, the suspect didn’t use the media’s favorite gun to demonize, the AR-15, he used a sawed-off shotgun and a revolver. Both are common firearms for hunting and self-defense. But that didn’t stop NBC Sunday Today anchor Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd from hoping “something” would come and restrict your “access” to your constitutional rights.
PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff asked her regular Friday pundits David Brooks and Mark Shields to evaluate the Robert Mueller probe after a year. Shields, for his part, took out a verbal baseball bat and began attacking House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes as not only stupid and immature, but as the 21st century equivalent of Joe McCarthy:
In the past week, several networks have repeated questionable claims that an eight-month-old Palestinian baby was killed by Israeli tear gas in the Gaza Strip. And MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin even went so far as to twice repeat a discredited story that a paraplegic in a wheel chair was killed by Israeli snipers without noting that the IDF already disputed the story in March.
In its April 2018 Monthly Treasury Statement, the federal government reported that it ran an all-time single-month record $214 billion surplus, primarily because it took in a record $510 billion in receipts. The Associated Press's Josh Boak ignored the collections record, even though the AP noted the previous record when it occurred in 2015. Instead, Boak presented a different and far smaller out-of-context collections figure, and falsely claimed that the Republican Congress's tax cuts are responsible for the increase in fiscal 2018's seven-month budget deficit compared to last year. This negligence irresponsibly enables leftist pundits to continue to scream that the tax cuts aren't working, despite growing evidence that they really are.
Washington Post chief film critic Ann Hornaday demonstrated a little too much feminist enthusiasm in her Friday article in the Style section. The headline was “And the summer box office’s big winner is . . . Ruth Bader Ginsburg?” CNN Films made a gushy Ginsburg documentary called RBG that has grossed two million dollars. Somehow, that makes her comparable to an Avengers movie.
New York Times reporter Nellie Bowles devoted a 3,400-word attack on Jordan Peterson, the Canadian psychologist, professor, YouTube lecture star, and author of the runaway best-seller 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, who has become Public Enemy No. 1 for the intersectional left. The headline gave away Bowles’ dishonest take: “Jordan Peterson, Custodian of the Patriarchy -- He says there’s a crisis in masculinity. Why won’t women -- all these wives and witches -- just behave?” Ben Shapiro didn’t mince words in his takedown: "The piece is tailored to Bowles’ message: Peterson is a horrifying misogynist."
Talk about a character witness. There was a time before Dan Rather was known as the “disgraced” ex-CBS Evening News journalist. But even before he used phony documents in an attempt to torpedo George W. Bush, Rather had a questionable link to the truth. On May 15, 2001, he proclaimed Bill Clinton an “honest” man, saying, “I think you can be an honest person and lie about any number of things.”
The Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles will celebrate their NFL title during a June 5 visit with President Donald Trump. These visits were seen by media as joyous occasions when Democrats, like sports junkie Barack Obama, were in office. But now they view the visits as something like a road game before a hostile audience for the teams coming to Washington.
On Friday's Real Time show on HBO, liberal comedian Bill Maher and his guests made a number of incendiary comments about conservatives, including Maher joking that HIV is "what you (Donald Trump) get for sleeping with" Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Some were scandalized when the secular celebrities from Rihanna to Madonna dressed up in glitzy bishop’s hats and bejeweled crowns of crosses for the hot-ticket gala for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, built around a theme of the Catholic imagination. The Catholic Church has a rich history of imagery for fashion designers to explore. But their tweaking of religious imagery was a child’s game of patty-cake next to Time magazine, which delighted in publishing a related piece: “The Story Behind This Photo of Stormy Daniels as the Virgin Mary.”
Movie director Rob Reiner appeared on Friday's Morning Joe to announce his historical verdict: This is the first time in American history that "state-run TV" networks like Fox and Sinclair ever "aligned with a president of the United States." The networks never aligned with JFK, or Bill Clinton, or Barack Obama.
Despite the fact that Friday’s alleged gunman in the despicable high school shooting in Santa Fe, TX used his father’s shotgun and .38 caliber revolver, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews shepherded through a discourteous opening panel of Democratic Congressman Joaquín Castro (TX), Moms Demand Action leader Shannon Watts, and Parkland, FL teacher Greg Pittman that showed an inability to grasp facts but rather an ability to hurl insults.
