It took a “fierce conservative backlash” for the Washington Post to concern itself with Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s attitude toward a radical late-term abortion bill. The bill would roll-back restrictions on abortion in a state that does allow third-trimester abortion when a woman’s life is at risk as certified by three doctors.
Ah, the Sundance Film Festival, where the magic of independent film takes center stage and audiences thrill to the prospect of discovering show biz’s next new big thing. According to The Daily Beast, that next big thing may be the “most unlikely star of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival,” Lucien Greaves, the leader of The Satanic Temple. Greaves and his group are the subject of the documentary Hail Satan?
It used to be that journalists didn’t need fire safety seminars to know they could get burned publishing stories that lacked facts or context. But when the original, deceptively edited video of Nathan Phillips and the Covington kids emerged, the press swaddled itself in oily rags, grabbed a Zippo and went full “Johnny Human Torch.”
Despite terrible storylines and a notable, real-life #MeToo-type scandal, Showtime’s SMILF has somehow returned for a second season. In an effort to prove how grossly insane that decision was, the latest episode goes full throttle with the disgusting and sacrilegious “humor.” Sadly, last week's fairly tame season two premiere seems to have only been a fluke.
In a disgusting Thursday afternoon tweet, New York Times reporter Dan Levin solicited information from people on Twitter looking to “expose Christian schools”, as if they were some kind of a scourge. The Hill media reporter, Joe Concha unloaded on Levin for going into it with a “nefarious agenda” during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Those who weighed in on this Covington Catholic High School student story include some members of the Catholic clergy, Catholic lay leaders, and non-Catholics. Some were temperate in their remarks and some were vicious. Some have issued a full-throated apology, while others have offered less than a complete apology. Others are sticking to their guns. Two persons went off the cliff.
Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom dedicated a full segment to the shameful security threats to Covington Catholic High School, its students, and their families. However, it largely brushed off this horrible reality by focusing on a “poignant exchange” between a Native American and Trump supporter outside the Covington Diocese as well as defending the media writ large from their embarrassing behavior since Saturday afternoon.
Twitter has refused to delete many calls for violence by verified Twitter celebrities against conservative Catholic students or suspend the offenders stay from the platform. A fake news story falsely accused Covington Catholic High School students of harassing a Native American activist outraged the internet this past weekend. The story has since been corrected by some outlets, but the damage has been done. Twitter has still not taken down many of these threats or calls for violence.
In the wake of the petty insults leveled at Vice President Mike Pence and his wife on the part of the LGBTQ-obsessed media, Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins appeared on Fox & Friends January 21 to remind conservatives that this is not just routine slander against politicians, but reflects the left’s desire to eradicate Christian education in America.
Lady Gaga started off her new Las Vegas residency, dubbed “Enigma,” with a political bang. The famous avant-garde singer, now A-list actress, took time out of her Saturday show to blast Vice President Mike Pence as a “disgrace” to his Christianity, and complained to the crowd about the “fucking president” not getting the government back up and running.
ABC’s Good Morning America admitted Monday that the incident at the March for Life that went viral appearing to show Catholic teens in MAGA hats sneering at a Native American veteran, was taken out of context. However, ABC failed to acknowledge that their own network also slandered these kids with their hasty reporting based off of on one viral video.
Amidst the liberal media’s long-delayed realization that perhaps their friends in the Women’s March are anti-Semites, CNN host John King leveled an attack Friday on Christianity through the lens of the Second Family, wondering if the conservative Christianity espoused by the Pences disqualifies Second Lady Karen Pence from Secret Service protection. Earth to John King — Joy Behar tried pulling a fast one like this almost a year ago on ABC’s The View and, if you’d ask Behar and her bosses, it didn’t turn out too well.
