White people are damned if they do, damned if they don’t. According to a June 1 Vox article by Dylan Matthews, white people are racist because they do not give enough money to minorities, but they are also racist for giving too much.
Liberal ideology is rife with inconsistencies, but none is greater than how its supposedly animating motivation -- human compassion — is contradicted by its devaluation of human life. Liberals have long claimed superior compassion and demonized conservatives as being uncaring. This has always been untrue while superficially appearing to be true, and liberals have evangelized countless young minds with this seductive canard.
On CNN's New Day Saturday, the show devoted a six-minute segment to the book, Dying of Whiteness, giving author and Vanderbilt University Professor Jonathan Metzl a forum to argue that poor white Republicans "vote in a way that may be killing them" because they are allegedly fixated on voting for race-based reasons. The segment even invoked poor whites in the late 19th century who refused to ally with recently freed slaves on common interests because of racial resentment.
Over the weekend HBO premiered their new pro-migrant propaganda film. Titled Icebox, the HBO original is about a 12 year-old Honduran who is apprehended for illegally crossing the border and forced to languish in a child detention center. And of course, the media has taken the bait and praised the film for its personal look on how immigration law is ruining young lives, calling HBO’s portrayal a “public service.”
Morning Joe regular and professor Eddie Glaude Jr. calls Mississippi Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who yesterday won re-election, the "last breath of the inheritors of the plantation class." Glaude also claims that Mississippi could change if poor people "acted in their interests."
The end is in sight for the latest season of Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, but that doesn’t stop every episode from being more excruciating than the last. In a true pinnacle of awfulness, she provides a sketch with the voting, swearing, pansexual version of Jesus Christ. It just goes to show that when they go low, Sarah goes lower.
On Friday's MSNBC Live, as host Ali Velshi brought aboard Black Lives Matter leader Deray McKesson to discuss the controversial Nike ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, the MSNBC host actually hit his liberal guest from the left as he wondered if Nike was really doing enough to promote Kaepernick's political agenda.
TBS's Wrecked continued the longstanding tradition, lampooning rich, white men on Tuesday’s episode, “Six Feet,” as “monsters,” misogynists and sexual harassers who look down disdainfully on the poor and treat them horribly. Oh, and they make people hunt and kill each other for sport, too. Because, of course.
NBA star Lebron James would never sit across from President Trump, but he would sit down with “Barack.” In an interview on CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon asked the basketball player what he would say to the current President if he were sitting in the room. James claimed that it would never happen.
An obviously agenda-driven report on extreme poverty from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights accuses the U.S. under the Trump administration of, in the UN group's words, "becoming a champion of inequality." It also claims that, because of its policies, "the American dream is rapidly becoming the American illusion." As one might expect, many the press have eagerly relayed the UN group's Trump-blaming findings, even though the statistics undergirding the UN group's efforts predate Donald Trump's inauguration.
Venezuela's descent under Bolivarian socialist President and de facto dictator Nicolas Maduro has achieved yet another grim milestone. This time it's the return of polio, on top of other previously eradicated diseases including diphtheria, tuberculosis, measles, and malaria. The return of polio has caught the attention of some in the international press in the past few days, but only one of over a dozen related English stories found in early Monday afternoon Eastern Time Google News searches identified the nation or its leader as socialist. Also as of Monday afternoon, there was no coverage at major U.S. news outlets.
Wednesday, CNN presented yet another story about Venezuela's implosion which did a fine job of portraying that country's human misery, this time in the oil industry. Unfortunately, it was yet another example of a story failing to mention its socialist form of government or even its leader, President Nicolas Maduro. Though such omissions have long been routine in establishment press reports, reporter Stefano Pozzebon's were particularly galling, given that the governments of Maduro and especially Hugo Chavez, his Bolivarian socialist predecessor, are entirely responsible for Venezuela's oil collapse.
