You follow the antics of AOC and the so-called "Squad" of hers and you wonder if the Left has lost its mind. Your instincts are correct. And if it's any comfort to them, they're not alone. In fact there are even loonier elements loose among the elites.
Two of the New York Times's most execrable tendencies came together in one awful story, set for print in Sunday’s edition. It combined the paper’s “Red Century” homages and other paeans to Communist regimes (who supposedly supported “women’s rights” despite being genocidal dictatorships) with the paper’s habit of gleefully puncturing what it considers lazy jingoistic pro-American mythology on days like Independence Day, or the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. Times contributor Sophie Pinkham’s ludicrous “How the Soviets Won the Space Race for Equality -- The U.S.S.R. sent women and people of color to space years before the U.S.”
The Top Gun sequel is set for release next June, but all is not right with Maverick. It seams the producers have bent the knee to strongman Xi Jinping in Beijing. On Twitter, Globe and Mail reporter Mark MacKinnon noted that the Top Gun: Maverick trailer features Maverick’s iconic leather jacket; however, the new rendition removed the original Japanese and Taiwanese flag patches. MacKinnon later revealed that China’s Tencent Pictures is one of the main producers of the new Top Gun which explains the change.
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, commenting on President Trump's tweets regarding The Squad, Donny Deutsch says: "we are heading to such a dangerous place. And guess what? You look at history, it can happen here. Maybe it’s the Jews next."
The New York Times has a repellent recurring habit of whitewashing the evils of Communism while actually praising the murderous ideology by giving it unearned credit for its ideals, which were never achieved and often dubious in themselves, while bashing freedom and capitalism. The latest appeared in Wednesday’s Times, with Amy Qin reporting from China with “As China Prospers, Women Watch Futures Fade.”
Fans of Netflix's Stranger Things might remember Erica Sinclair, Lucas' little sister who stole the show in season two. She's back in season three and an absolute American hero. Not only does she join the team to save the world from the Russians, she makes sure everyone understands that it's all about capitalism versus communism.
Wish that President Trump would not have inserted himself into Washington, D.C.’s Fourth of July celebrations, allowing A Capitol Fourth to remain on its own? Fine. But to declare the President’s plans “un-American” and a sign he wants to make America like North Korea or the former Soviet Union? That’s nonsense, folks. And as evidenced by those hot takes on Tuesday’s Hardball with MSNBC host Chris Matthews and his three panelists, we have yet another example of what Trump Derangement Syndrome can do to your well-being.
There have been plenty of criticisms of President Trump's desire for a Fourth of July event to take place in Washington D.C. Criticisms include it being a misguided use of funds, the tanks being too heavy for D.C.'s streets and bridges, and assertions it would resemble a Soviet military parades down Red Square. On Monday, Trump raised eyebrows with his comments about "brand new Sherman tanks," but on the Tuesday edition of CNN's The Situation Room, April Ryan came up with a new objection: the purpose of the parade is so that Trump can look like a dictator.
On Saturday, conservative journalist Andy Ngo, who reports for Quillette, was brutally beaten with fists and weapons and doused with milkshakes laced with quick-dry cement by the left-wing, domestic terrorist group Antifa. The attack left him hospitalized with damage to his face and a brain hemorrhage. He was luckily released from the hospital Monday evening and seemed well enough to do an interview with Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson, where he recounted the attack.
For years now, CNN has claimed President Trump has made America a dangerous place for journalists, it’s even the topic of chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s new book. It’s a narrative they sowed to tar Trump supporters and anyone who would question their motives. But on Saturday it was “right-wing” journalist Andy Ngo who was viciously assaulted by left-wing Antifa terrorists.
Portland, Oregon police allowed the domestic terrorist group known as Antifa to prowl their streets on Saturday were they clashed with purported “right-wing” protesters and assaulted the press. Despite putting one journalist in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage, ABC’s Good Morning America couldn’t be bothered to give the story more than 17 seconds and no mention of the journalist. NBC’s Sunday Today ignored the story altogether.
The New York Times is still trying to refurbish the thuggish reputation of the Communist regime of East Germany, once part of the Eastern Bloc, Soviet-aligned countries of Eastern Europe. The latest sad example came from reporter Thomas Rogers in Berlin, dedicated to the now-demolished Palast der Republik. The online headline: “Symbol of a Brutal Regime? Or a Fun Place to Party?” Rogers was gentle with the monstrous East German regime: "...it still arouses nostalgia among some former citizens who fondly remember its gender egalitarianism and social safety net or admire its utopian aspirations."
