As CFL contributor Steven H. Ahle noted earlier today, Barack Obama said we need better “ideas” to defeat ISIS, since his — such as they are — clearly aren’t working.
So Twitter users stepped up to the plate to do the job Obama obviously doesn’t want to do. As Twitchy reported, blogger Caleb Howe provided some ideas:
The stupid just got a little bit deeper. According to Judith Harrington, an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, the Minnesota state flag is offensive because — wait for it — it displays a white man working.
“A critical examination of what the flag is saying, however, should make Minnesotans reconsider what their state flag projects about their state,” she wrote.
Bill Whittle does it again, with a terrific video presenting the entire sordid history of the Democratic Party.
He notes, for example, that the Democratic Party ran on a platform to end the Civil War in 1864. Had they gotten their way, the CSA would probably still be in existence today. He also notes that it was defeated Democrats who started the KKK, and tackles the talking point that Republicans and Democrats “switched” positions on civil rights.
Recently, Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, announced that she is pregnant with a second child. Naturally, that prompted the liberal hate machine to come slithering out of the woodwork.
This Friday, Bill Maher went after her in his usual fashion, saying Palin “can see Russia from her bed.” Here’s video of that:
I’m surprised I missed this. Last July, a video was posted of a group calling themselves “Hebrew Israelites” — better known as the “Blackboro Baptist Church” — telling white people they would become slaves to blacks. They also attacked Asians using a slur I haven’t heard since the 1970s.
The rhetoric was ramped up several times, with calls for death to white people — including babies. Of course, it’s not the first time we’ve heard that from militant blacks. A post at Top Right News described it this way:
On Thursday, reports emerged that Amazon reps were telling customers the federal government ordered them to pull Confederate flags.
Earlier in the day, a video emerged purporting to be a call between a customer and an Amazon rep. That video can be seen/heard below:
While speaking at an LBGT Pride Month event at the White House, President Obama faced down a heckler complaining about deportations.
The heckler was removed, but Obama said something that sparked considerable discussion online.
“You’re in MY house,” he said. One person posted a video of the statement online:
The effort to rewrite U.S. history continues, this time on CNN. After making a former congressman look racist, CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield brought on Don Lemon to discuss the issue.
Lemon didn’t disappoint, telling Banfield there may come a time when we will need to discuss removing a monument to Thomas Jefferson from the U.S. Capitol because he once owned slaves. Video of that can be seen below:
On Monday, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley called for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the State House.
In short, the left got what it wanted. Naturally, that’s not enough for the perpetual outrage machine which continued to whine and gripe and moan on Twitter.
Among those not happy with Haley was Joan Walsh, who used the presser to attack the GOP governor:
During a question-and-answer session after a recent speech, Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan issued not one, but two, warnings to those who might come against his group.
“We will kill you all,” he told those who might come against his organization physically. He also said the same thing to a woman who asked a question from the microphone after launching into an angry tirade. This has been out for at least a month and hasn’t gotten anywhere near the attention it deserves.
