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

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.

‘Smoking gun so hot it’s still on fire’: Ex-US Attorney astonished by text shown in Vindman testimony

Published

on

A former U.S. Attorney says Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman has delivered "smoking gun" evidence of a quid pro quo arrangement between President Donald Trump and Ukraine.

The National Security Council staffer told a House impeachment inquiry that he was aware of -- and alarmed by -- efforts as early as March to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation of Joe Biden and his son, which he believed were conducted to deliver a political benefit the president.

The counsel for House Democrats then showed a text sent 30 minutes before Trump's July 25 call to Ukraine's president Volodymyr Zelensky, which shows the special envoy Kurt Volker dangling a White House visit to a Zelensky aide in exchange for an investigation.

‘Perfectly impeachable’: George Conway says Vindman and Williams testimony is ‘absolutely devastating’ for Trump

Published

on

On Tuesday, as Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Mike Pence aide Jennifer Williams testified publicly about their knowledge of the Ukraine scandal, conservative lawyer George Conway called the testimony "devastating" for President Donald Trump — and proclaimed his conduct both impeachable and criminal.

This testimony, from two witnesses to the July 25 call, is absolutely devastating. That call was absolutely “perfect,” all right—perfectly impeachable.

And criminal.
