It’s often difficult to distinguish between the arguments of anti-semetic pro-Palestinians (à la Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Louis Farrakhan) and anti-semetic white nationalists. Actor John Cusack ran across this problem Monday night when he posted an anti-semetic tweet that used a Neo-Nazi quote, thinking it was a pro-Palestine meme. The Con Air star later deleted the tweet and issued an apology, but through the left’s readiness to forgive, it unintentionally exposed its own hypocrisy.
Twitter suspended the account of investigative group Project Veritas after it exposed censorship at Pinterest against pro-lifers. According to the pro-life group Live Action, Pinterest “permanently suspended” its account on June 11. This was after Pinterest was exposed by Project Veritas for limiting conservative groups on the platform. A Project Veritas secret investigation quoted a Pinterest insider who revealed how the site censors such content.
For a group of people who preach free love and free hugs, liberals really need to loosen up. On Saturday, Kylie Jenner posted a video on her Instagram of a “Handmaid’s Tale” themed birthday party she hosted for her friend. The video has since been deleted, but not before the Twitter social justice mob had already unleashed its wrath.
Hollywood celebrities aren’t the only people upset about recent state efforts to limit abortion. A number of business executives are too. CNN Business writer Jackie Wattles promoted a letter signed by more than 180 business leaders that claimed restricting abortion was “bad for business.” It appeared as a full-page ad in The New York Times. She cited a “growing willingness” by businesses to take a stand on the biggest political issues of the day, but linked only to stories of CEOs embracing left-wing causes or attitudes.
Democrats are threatening to regulate Big Tech. But they’re saying it while their pockets are stuffed with donations from these companies. The House Judiciary Committee announced it was having a hearing concerning “Online Platforms and Market Power, Part 1: The Free and Diverse Press.” The hearing will be held on June 11, at 2:00 pm.
Unless you’re a hermit living in blessed solitude, you already know that June is LGBT Pride Month. But who says that straight people can’t celebrate in June? On Tuesday, author James Fell woefully announced on his Facebook “It’s official. Boston is going to have a ‘Straight Pride Parade.’” The event is still pending approval from the City of Boston. Sadly, the satirical event has drawn the ire of many intolerant Hollywood stars who are fighting to shut it down.
As if there weren’t enough liberals running for president, CNN senior editor Amanda Katz pulled another name out of the hat. Yesterday evening, Katz tweeted “Realistically, Bette Midler could never win the primary, but if she went head to head with Trump in the general he wouldn’t stand a chance.” At least she’s being realistic.
On Tuesday night, Politico Magazine senior writer Michael Grunwald seemed to have inadvertently auditioned for a role on former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign by offering a hilarious defense in light of news first reported by our friend Peter Hasson at the Daily Caller News Foundation that Biden’s environmental proposal “used nearly identical language from other sources in at least five different passages.”
Whenever Miley Cyrus pops back into the news, the rest of the country appears a lot more wholesome in comparison. Today at 11:14 AM, while normal Americans were working for a living, Miley Cyrus tweeted out a picture of herself licking a cake that says “Aborton Is Healthcare.” Here’s a good rule of thumb: if Miley Cyrus is your political ally, you’re probably on the wrong side.
Media Research Center President Brent Bozell on Monday starred in a PragerU video exposing the dangers of social media tech censorship. Bozell traced the history of companies like Apple, from rebelling against the old ways in the famous Apple 1984 Super Bowl commercial, to pushing conformity and squashing debate. Citing efforts to stifle speech, Bozell lamented, “Our former liberators now want to be our masters.... They are becoming the Big Brother Orwell foresaw. ”
For liberal Twitter, “hateful conduct” can be any joke that makes conservatives smile. Radio host and blogger Erick Erickson was suspended on May 31 for cracking a joke about Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren. In a tweet from May 30, Erickson wrote, “Elizabeth Warren set to introduce the Wrecking American Prosperity Under Marxism, or WAMPUM Act, wherein she gives away everything for free.”
It’s truly amazing just how low liberal Democrats are willing to go to express their constant, intense hatred of President Trump. The latest example of this comes from Cherilyn Sarkisian, who is better known as “Cher.” Earlier this week, the singer and actress tweeted in no uncertain terms that she would like to see the President arrested and thrown in prison, where he should be sexually assaulted by a fellow inmate. Even though the 73-year-old liberal has received a negative backlash from her message, she has refused to apologize for her caustic outburst while admitting: "There is a line not to cross."
