The social media skirmish between President Trump and defenders of NFL protests is back on, and Yahoo! Sports rushed headlong into the fray today to denounce the commander in chief for opposing those pro football players who take a knee during the national anthem.
As the pro-life movement prepares for the 45th annual March for Life, here’s a number the liberal media are unlikely to report: Planned Parenthood has committed 7.6 million abortions since Roe vs. Wade. Over the holiday weekend, America’s largest abortion provider released its 2016 – 2017 annual report. According to that report and former ones (plus numbers supplied by pro-life groups), Planned Parenthood has been responsible for the death of more than 7.6 million babies, from 1973 through 2017.
Netflix's The Ranch, which just released their fourth season, saw the Bennett family struggling to keep their family ranch afloat. Hope came from an unexpected source. Unexpected to see depicted on television, anyway: an oil and gas company. When the company comes in with the promise of a pipeline that will bring money into the ranch, it seems like the answer to their financial problems. Even though they manage to work in some leftist talking points, I was pleasantly surprised to see the oil and gas industry get a fair shake.
Sports Illustrated magazine fawned over Colin Kaepernick after the magazine awarded him its 2017 Muhammad Ali Legacy Award. Eleven pages of the December 11 print magazine were devoted to worship of the out-of-work quarterback. SI writer Michael Rosenberg was positively reverent in his article “Truth Teller," which avoided the word "flag," the very thing Kaepernick was protesting, while hailing him for his "steadfastness in the fight for social justice" and insisting "yes, he has been blackballed" from the NFL.
Are tax cuts anti-God? New York Times religion reporter Laurie Goodstein again celebrated a protest movement by the religious left (while chiding the religious right) in “50 Years Later, New Push to Magnify Plight of Poor.” The text box: “A plan to mount large protests on 40 consecutive days," keyed to the new tax bill that in Goodstein's words, "mainly benefits corporations and the rich."
Here's some radical chic with a violent twist: After apologizing for allegedly normalizing a Nazi sympathizer last week, the New York Times celebrated violent hard-left Antifa (the “anti-fascists” who actually delight in identify-hiding uniforms, violence, and other fascist tactics) on the front of the Styles section Thursday. Don’t expect a similar backlash from the paper’s leftist readership.
NFL broadcasting advertisers are getting nervous about the protests and putting the networks on notice about their discontent. NBC Universal, the parent company of NBC, reports advertisers don't like what's going on with the anthem protests and are threatening to pull the plug on pro football advertising.
This season of American Horror Story: Cult on FX has focused on Trump-like cult leader Kai Anderson (Evan Peters) and his quest for world domination, one killing at a time. In Tuesday night's episode “Charles (Manson) in Charge,” the murder plot involves Planned Parenthood, and of course pro-lifers are hardest hit.
The CW’s Supergirl continues to spiral into liberal idiocy for its third season, and each time it seems to grow more and more idiotic. After insulting a president who doesn’t even exist in their universe, the show has decided to co-opt something else from real life. Say goodbye to any enjoyment from the phrase “lock her up.”
Sunday’s New York Times featured Monica Davey reporting from the hard-left, anti-Trump “Women’s Convention” held in Detroit last weekend: “At Women’s Convention, Sustaining Momentum With Focus on Elections.” Davey managed not to notice the monolithic left-wing ideological component of the convention, featuring groups heavily funded by left-wing billionaire donor George Soros. There was not a single “left-wing” or even “liberal” label in a story about a convention featuring Rep. Maxine Waters and Muslim “feminist” Linda Sarsour, as well as the sponsors Planned Parenthood, MoveOn.org and the ACLU. Davey quoted Waters and Sarsour, but skipped the more radical and embarrassing moments from Waters and Sarsour, who made a disgusting Twitter attack on two former Muslim critics of radical Islam in 2011.
Our nation's leftist progressives have long sought to undermine the American values expressed in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Though typical Democrats and Republicans do not have this leftist hate for our nation, they have been willing accomplices in undermining the most basic value the Founding Fathers sought to promote -- limited government.
With athletes, cheerleaders and singers across the nation now commonly dissing Old Glory, The Chicago Tribune suggests it's not even appropriate for corporations to play the national anthem at sporting events. On The Town Editor Kevin Williams argues the Star Spangled Banner is getting the disrespect it deserves because it shouldn't be used at sporting events owned by private businesses.
