Conservatives mark MLK Day by attacking liberals and running down a ‘classless’ black man

- Commentary

Liberals, as any conservative will tell you, are the real racists, so it’s no surprise that right-leaning news outlets would use the holiday honoring the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. to remind everyone of that fact.

‘The Twitchy Team is the most explicit, asking “Who are the racists again?” The answer, of course, is “the ones who trade in identity politics and who focus solely on color, not character.” And if anyone had forgotten that things should be the other way around, neurologist and tea party favorite Dr. Ben Carson was there to remind everyone.

The Daily Caller takes pains to remind its readers that, unlike liberals, Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Christian: “As we observe the birthday of Dr. King, it would do us well to also remember Rev. King.”

Kevin Jackson at The American Thinker agrees, right down to the italics, asking “why is Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr, now referred to as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr?” The answer, he claims, is simply that “[t]he Left wants no remnants of the Christian revolution that changed this country.”

Also, because Monday is a day that ends in “y,” the answer is “Obama”: “Referring to King as ‘Dr. King’ implies that the Civil Rights movement was led by an academic, that academia brought us ‘change we can believe in.'”

Today should be a celebration of conservative values, Jackson concludes, because “[i]t was a black Republican Christian who changed America.”

Which makes perfect sense, because as Walter Hudson at Pajamas Media argues, King’s legacy is firmly in the hands of conservatives: “Who among those laying claim to King’s legacy sound like him today? Who among the organized Left advocates for objective freedom and true justice? Who rejects hatred and fosters the healing of racial divides? Al Sharpton? Jesse Jackson? Van Jones? Barack Obama? Who?”

None of them, that’s who. Conservatives have taken to heart MLK’s message about judging people by the content of their character, which is why almost every single conservative site has chosen to celebrate the national holiday in his honor by having a panic attack about an angry black man on their TV sets.

Last night, an attractive white female stood next to what looked like an angry black man, and conservative sites couldn’t believe how “insane” and “classless” he was:

Put aside, for the moment, that Richard Sherman had just made the game-winning play that sent his Seahawks to the Super Bowl, as well as the fact that Erin Andrews is an experienced side-line reporter who’s spent years in NFL locker rooms, because what matters here is that Sherman went “nuts,” as FOX Nation put it.

According to Daniel J. Flynn at Breitbart Sports, Sherman “does not know how to behave.” It’s like he doesn’t even notice he’s standing next to an attractive white woman! Or that he’s scaring her! As Andrews spoke to this athletic black man, Flynn writes, “her quaking voice add[ed] to the interview’s awkwardness[.]”

Which isn’t to say that Flynn subscribes to antebellum beliefs about black men lusting after white women. It just means, as Twitchy approvingly linked to, that:

Missouri Representative Ann Wagner saw this black man frightening a white woman, too:

Yes, what will the children think of the Game of Thronesquoting, Stanford-graduating, WWE-emulating black man? Maybe she answers this question in the very next Tweet she sends:

Funny how she’s all about celebrating the legacy of angry black men, so long as she doesn’t have to ever actually see one.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.

In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.

The faith of Fox News: How the network’s propaganda warps viewers’ sense of reality

Published

on

A longtime sticking point among Fox News employees is their insistent differentiation between its news division, where employees practice actual journalism, and its opinion division, where employees practice actual nativism, spew misinformation, and have been actively campaigning for Donald Trump’s re-election since 2016.  Inside the organization, they claim to believe that the news side is separate from the opinion side, and insist that the audience can tell the difference.

News anchor Shepard Smith once characterized comparing the two as “apples and teaspoons.”

2020 Election

Maddow warns Russia is interfering in the 2020 election in ‘exactly the same way’ as they did in 2016

Published

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday warned that Russia and the Republicans are running the "exact same play" against Democrats in 2020 -- and this time will be aided by the United States Justice Department.

"And they are playing it again already for the next election. And some of it is happening just like it did in 2016. And some of it is worse and I think it’s going to be more powerful than it was in 2016. In part because this is a second draft for these guys, right? They ran this play in 2016. They worked out some of the kinks," she explained. "Now they’ll do it again with the benefit of knowing what worked for them and what didn’t work the first time around. It’s a second draft. It’s going to be better and more polished."
