Amanda Marcotte in Friday's Salon compared the Republican senators at the impeachment trial of being a throwback to the Jim Crow era due to jury nullification. Her latest wacky shtick is that those Republicans will probably act as a throwback to Jim Crow due to jury nullification.
Salon’s politics writer Amanda Marcotte has been putting 110% into being the Grinch this Christmas. On Christmas day, she followed up her attack on Christians who wish each other "Merry Christmas," by directly comparing Hallmark Channel Christmas specials to Nazi propaganda.
How bitter are anti-Tump leftists? Feminist Scrooge Amanda Marcotte is saying “Bah Humbug!” to the Christmas season this year, all because Donald J. Trump is the president.
Unlike many of her fellow leftists, such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who despite the visual evidence absurdly claimed that the July 4 speech by President Donald Trump was "poorly attended," Salon politics writer Amanda Marcotte admitted the truth about the size of the large crowd. However, while conceding the evidence was true, Marcotte rationalized it by claiming the big turnout was due to..... racism.
The announced retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy has thrown the left even further into angry confusion. Amid all the doomsaying and rending of garments, some in the media are attempting to label Anthony Kennedy as a “traditional conservative.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center is at it again -- spreading hate against people it disagrees with.This time, the SPLC targeted ACT for America during ACT’s seventh annual national conference. The assault triggered a response among liberals eager to prove their fidelity to SPLC’s intolerant agenda of hate. The SPLC attacked ACT as the “largest anti-Muslim organization in the U.S.,” and criticized Marriott hotels for hosting the conference.
Considering the state of world affairs, what is the most significant threat currently confronting mankind? According to author Fiona Helmsley, it’s the threat of “male fragility, and men just not being able to process their feelings of insecurity, their feelings of anger.”
According to the liberal media and Hollywood, the president’s new Supreme Court pick can be defined as “anti-choice” and “mentally unbalanced.”
Salon pundit Marcotte believes that in the Age of Trump, conservatism consists of just two tenets: the rich should get richer, and liberals are disgusting. In a Friday column, Marcotte admitted that liberals “say nasty things about conservatives,” but maintained that conservatives are far more likely than liberals to engage in “dehumanization” of political opponents.
Major similarities between the 2016 presidential election and that of 2000 don’t end with the Democrat winning the popular vote but losing the electoral vote, claims Marcotte, who contended that the media had it in for Hillary Clinton the same way they did for Al Gore, and that in each case biased campaign coverage was a factor in driving down Democratic voter turnout. Regarding this year’s race, Marcotte remarked, “Replace ‘I invented the internet’ with ‘emails,’ ‘Naomi Wolf’ with ‘pneumonia’ and ‘Ralph Nader’ with ‘Jill Stein,’ and you’re looking at a rerun.”
Hillary Clinton was recently diagnosed with pneumonia. Barack Obama was not born in Kenya or anywhere else other than Honolulu, Hawaii. So what do Hillary fact and Obama fiction have in common? Marcotte has a sexism- and racism-related explanation. “The feigned concerns over Clinton’s health strongly resemble the feigned concerns that Obama was faking his natural born citizenship,” she wrote in a Tuesday piece, “right down to the posturing about how this is all the target’s fault for not providing more and more documentation -- to drive home how much those of us who aren’t white men cannot be trusted. In both cases, it’s about wallowing in ugly stereotypes -- that black people aren’t patriots, that women are inherently fragile -- without admitting that’s what’s going on.”
Sunday’s tragic and devastating shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando predictably brought out the worst in the left-wing media, who took to Twitter to politicize the events before even a day had passed. Like tragedies before it, the media automatically blamed the NRA, gun-supporting politicians and the GOP. But this time, some liberal media pundits even blamed men in general and Christians for the shooting, despite the fact that the shooter was a radicalized Muslim.
