Why I left the Democrats

fat
Sports Illustrated “model.”

AND WHY YOU should do the same.

It started for me in 2007 when it came to light that the Obamas had sat for 20 years in the church of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, he of the “Goddamn America” sermon. Wright was quickly muzzled by Obama’s handlers.

It went downhill from there between me and the Democrat Party for which my entire family had proudly voted for decades.

There was Political Correctness, that ham-fisted ideology that blossomed in the 1990s and just got worse. Later, the lunacy kicked in. Putting fat gals in the Swimsuit Edition of Sports Illustrated in the name of “equality.” Obesity is a serious health issue, not something to be glorified. Obesity isn’t just another valid lifestyle choice.

And there is Cancel Culture. Share our opinion or be fired. From the disturbing, it’s descended into madness. Take Aunt Jemima off the syrup jar. Change the names of sports teams. Don black clothing and masks to march and riot in the streets.

Can’t dress like Pancho Villa for Halloween unless you’re Mexican. Actors can’t play disabled people in movies unless they are themselves disabled.

Last night at the restarting of the NBA games, every player and coach on both teams, 100 percent, took to their knees before the national anthem, thumbing their noses at the flag of the nation that made them wealthy and privileged.

Conservatives are squelched online by Big Tech. Black Lives Matter — which consists to a great degree of white leftists whose aim is Marxism, a word they wisely removed from their website not long ago — still laughably states on its website:

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family.

The film classic Gone With the Wind is blocked from online streaming. Statues are toppled, not just of Gen. Robert E. Lee but the Great Emancipator Abraham Lincoln himself, which demonstrates a dizzying level of ignorance.

And nincompoopery.

The owners of a Michigan Bed & Breakfast were browbeaten recently into removing a Norwegian flag outside their business because it resembles a Confederate flag.

Defund the police! Imbecilic.

Speaking of nincompoopery, here’s a very smart and brave girl who goes by Cringe Panda online. Her internet fame has skyrocketed since the first of the year. Watch her address the appalling state of public education.

No need to watch the entire thing. The first five minutes will educate you.

All of the above and much more flows totally from the left side of the political divide, those people who vote Democrat. All of it, 100 percent.

And if you are unaware of the things I mentioned, consider finding news sources other than The New York Times, Washington Post, Huffpost and MSNBC.

You’re being duped.

If you are aware of the things I mentioned, and you still vote Democrat, that is far worse, and I’m ashamed of you. But let’s move on to:


JOE BIDEN

The presumed Democrat presidential nominee is that hated thing, an old white man, and decades-long political hack. How did this happen?

It happened because actual Democrat voters, most of whom are not Marxists, participated in the primary elections, and apparently grass-roots Democrats were not happy with the radical choices they saw on the debate stages. Every Democrat, for instance, raised a hand when asked if they supported “free” healthcare for illegal aliens. Even Joe.

Voters opted for the old shoe they knew, smelly as it is.

Tulsi Gabbard, the best of the sorry lot, would have shot her candidacy skyward had she the bravery to leave her hand down to the question of healthcare for illegals. The move would have stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb but in a positive way. She killed her chances with that one raise of the arm.

She was the only one who had a prayer of beating Trump.

Biden is old, older than Trump, and plainly has cognitive issues which makes his vice-presidential choice far more important than usual. If you vote for Biden in November, know that you’re actually voting for the vice president to be president.

He will nominate a radical woman “of color” because the leftist party bosses have him by the short hairs. He’ll do anything to be president. He’d get on all fours and bark.

Take a close look at the vice-presidential nominee, and think hard about how Democrats are running cities and states these days. The riots, lawlessness, Antifa, BLM, high taxes, vagrancy, high-priced housing, tent cities, and so on.

Again, if you’re unaware of these things, consider finding news sources other than The New York Times, Washington Post, Huffpost and MSNBC.

You’re being duped.

Consider doing what I did in 2007: Leave the Democrat Party.

Bolsheviks at BigTech

THE CONSERVATIVE YouTube channel of PragerU is taking the video-hosting service to court over its blatant, left-wing, shameless censorship. Let us pray for the success of that legal action and that it’s extended to Facebook, Twitter and their unsavory ilk.

As PragerU’s attorney says in the video, this is of vital importance to the survival of the Republic. Meanwhile, a whistle-blower at Google reveals the astounding degree to which that company goes to influence elections and mold American culture.

While hysterical Democrats have writhed on the floor since Trump’s election in 2016 over nonexistent “Russian collusion,” actual election meddling continues at BigTech on a daily basis. Sensible Democrats might consider switching parties as I did in 2008.

You’ll like it over here. The air is fresher. And bluebirds sing.

Alas, the Bolsheviks also control Hollywood and the American educational system. The significance of this is difficult to overestimate.

And then they came for me

IF YOU’RE PAYING attention to the nefarious stuff going on around you, you know that Silicon Valley leftists, which is to say 95 percent of Silicon Valley, a.k.a. Masters of the Universe, are doing everything possible to eliminate conservative voices.

They would use railway boxcars to the ovens were it possible. Since it is not possible just yet, they employ other dark tactics.

One method, and it’s very effective so far, is to make it impossible for conservatives to make a living online. Payment processors like PayPal and Patreon simply delete accounts of people they disagree with politically.

YouTube is fond of deleting channels, some of which are cash conduits, of conservatives. If you’re not particularly worked up about this because it does not affect you personally, I direct your attention to the famous poem by German pastor Martin Niemöller:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out —
     Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out —
     Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out —
     Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.

Niemöller was referring to the Nazis, who also silenced people with differing opinions.

Patreon recently deleted the account of popular YouTuber Sargon of Akkad, which is the nom de internet of a mild-mannered British conservative whose real name is Carl Benjamin, a move that has created quite a stir. Patreon may have gone one step too far with Benjamin.

Hippie singer and Patreon co-founder Jack Conte reacts to the extensive blowback from the Sargon censorship in the above video. Enjoy.

(I addressed this attack on free speech by leftist Trump-loathers just recently with the post titled Gabbing for free speech.)

Gabbing for free speech

15840b95-c0ca-43ab-ae00-5e12807802c8THE CLUELESS among us are unaware of how bad the situation is, how thoroughly politically-correct leftism has muzzled free speech.

That the Silicon Valley “Masters of the Universe,” which is in no way a misnomer, censor non-leftist voices is well known.

frongMainstream conservatives swim upstream, against raging currents, on Facebook and Twitter while virulent anti-Semites like Linda Sarsour and Louis Farrakhan float contentedly in the placid waters of those social media giants and others too.

Don’t underestimate social media’s power in today’s world.

There’s more. The popular browser extension Web of Trust (WOT) will often display a yellow caution or red beware indicator on conservative websites. The indicator reflects votes from leftist visitors to the websites in question. This amounts to socialist graffiti.

On the flip side, go to leftist websites like Huffpost or The New York Times, and WOT will  show the green indicator because conservatives aren’t inclined to graffiti as they aren’t known for rioting in the streets.

Leftist muzzling knows no bounds. A prime example is the social media Gab.ai which was launched just over two years ago as a free-speech alternative to Twitter. It is the fastest-growing social media company on the internet with over 800,000 users, myself being one.

I have an account which I opened to lend moral support. I almost never use it in spite of my having over 1,000 followers. Like Twitter, Gab has a moderation policy. Unlike Twitter, Gab’s policy mirrors the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

What does this mean?

It means you might see some unpleasant opinions on Gab, opinions from people you can easily block just as you would walk away from a nincompoop you encounter on the street. Viewing, if only briefly, disagreeable opinions is the price paid for free speech.

Twitter is chockablock with nasty opinions, but they’re all from the left. When an “disagreeable” opinion comes from the right, Twitter cracks down. This is why Gab is needed as a counterweight.

Back to the muzzling.

What Gab has endured is incredible. It has had a couple of its internet homes pulled out from under it, the most recent leaving Gab offline for over a week. Every major payment processor has dumped Gab, and no bank appears willing to touch it. Currently, it is reduced to accepting payments with checks and money orders or via Bitcoin and Litecoin.

Gab does not do ads.

Why won’t any payment processor or bank cooperate? It’s not because they’re all a bunch of wild-eyed leftists. It’s because of fear.

In spite of this, Gab membership grows daily. Open an account to show moral support if nothing more. Sleep with a clear mind.

Do your little bit to kick a leftist in the shin.
