How liberals squelch
opposing points of view

Philadelphia Daily News, by Stu Bykofsky

Original Article

Journalist and TV pundit Kirsten Powers has a problem with her own people — liberals. The liberal columnist for USA Today doesn´t have a problem with all liberals, just the subset she defines as the "illiberal left." As political discourse has become more coarse, she sees growing danger. In her recent book, The Silencing, she argues some on her side want no part of fair debate and are taking an axe to free speech. The "illiberal left," she writes, "act in direct contradiction to the fundamental liberal values of free speech, debate and dissent" and "adopt tactics they claim to

Comments:
The religion of liberalism does not allow dissent. This article shows a number of examples of how liberals seek to enforce their religion -- The Amish would call it "shunning."

Kirsten Powers needs to switch sides. She´s fairly bright, articulate and nice to look at. Sometimes I wonder if she´s just playing the liberal for the fun of it. For some reason there´s a part of me that believes that she doesn´t believe the things she herself is saying/supporting (re: the idiocies of the left).

Kirsten claims that conservatives want to do the same thing but are just too stupid to get it done.

Mind readers, every one of them.

...only the ´bad´ liberals do bad stuff.

....and only the ´bad´ jihadis are killers.

When liberals hear something they don´t like and typically are incapable of any opposing argument, they immediately go to name-calling--- Nazi, fascist, homophobe, racist, sexist. It´s their default position. Whatever name is used, it signals end of discussion, end of argument. You are a Nazi, fascist, homophobe, racist, sexist and your arugument is thereby dismissed.

Rules for radicals, read it and understand your enemy. Make no mistake they are enemies because they decided to be. Not enough of the rest of us have figured that out. I applaud Kristen for noticing something is awry, and shouldn’t be too disappointed she doesn’t quite seem to grasp that they intend to eliminate us not simply silence us.

Concur with #1. Also Julie Roginsky - both to smart to believe the stuff they support.

Part of the disconnect is that self-described "liberals" aren´t that at all. They are statists in disguise. They hijacked the term "liberal" when people caught on to what "socialist", "progressive" and "communist" meant.

The “day without immigrants”
became a teachable moment
Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw    Original Article

Do you remember that “day without immigrants” protest that we talked about last week? It took place as predicted (and in fact demanded by activist organizers on the left). But in at least one location in Tennessee some of the participants learned a rapid and likely lasting lesson about the intersection of free speech and personal responsibility. Bradley Coatings, Inc. found out at the last minute that their tightly packed customer schedule was going to go up in flames when nearly 20 of their employees announced with roughly 12 hours notice that they would be taking part in the poorly

They pick the crops. Staff the restaurants. Mend the roofs. Mow the lawns. They work late at hospitals and airports. If you live in New Jersey, they probably pump your gas. What happens if they disappear? Unnerved by the high-profile arrests of 600 undocumented immigrants across six states last week -- not including Pennsylvania and New Jersey -- some Philadelphia-area businesses and restaurants that employ foreign-born staff, in the United States legally or not, are expected to take part Thursday in a “Day Without Immigrants” protest.

If Hallmark had a card for the characters of You Me Her, it might read: Roses are red, violets are blue We both love you madly and each other, too. An offbeat TV comedy from John Scott Shepherd (Save Me) that begins its second season on DirecTV´s Audience Network on Valentine´s Day, You Me Her stars Greg Poehler (Welcome to Sweden) and Rachel Blanchard (Fargo, 7th Heaven) as married couple Jack and Emma, and Priscilla Faia (Rookie Blue) as their girlfriend, Izzy. This season, they´re ready to out themselves as a "throuple" to their suburban friends and neighbors. What could

Sources: City´s director of
LGBT affairs to resign
Philadelphia Inquirer, by Julia Terruso    Original Article

Faced with ongoing criticism from several activist groups, Helen L. "Nellie" Fitzpatrick, head of the city’s Office of LGBT Affairs, is planning to resign, according to two sources, one with the city and one who works closely with it on LGBT issues. [Snip] Several groups, specifically the Black and Brown Workers Collective, have been calling for Fitzpatrick’s departure since October, when the owner of the bar iCandy was caught on video using the N-word. The incident sparked more widespread reports of dress codes and bar policies that discriminated against black and transgender people.

Phila. artist raises $70k to oppose
DeVos, ´buy´ Toomey´s vote
Philadelphia Inquirer, by Kristen A. Graham    Original Article
Posted By: Calvinesq- 2/7/2017 4:39:55 PM     Post Reply
As the clock ticks down to a confirmation vote on Betsy DeVos’ nomination as U.S. secretary of education, Philadelphians continue to weigh in on President Trump’s pick. Mayor Kenney on Monday sent Sen. Pat Toomey (R., Pa.) a letter asking him to vote against DeVos, whose confirmation is expected Tuesday. Kenney said the Senate ought not to “appoint someone to a job she does not understand, which could have tremendous consequences for our most vulnerable children and our economy.” Meanwhile, a Philadelphia teaching artist who started a crowdfunding campaign to “buy” Toomey’s vote surpassed her funding goal and was poised

Official Data: Sexual Assault Jumps
by 70 Per Cent in Sweden
Breitbart London, by Liam Deacon    Original Article
Posted By: Calvinesq- 1/11/2017 11:08:33 AM     Post Reply
The number of Swedes claiming to have been sexually assaulted has risen by 70 per cent in two years, with more than 13 per cent of women reporting to be too fearful to go out in the evening. In 2014, just 1 per cent of Swedes said they had been sexually attacked, jumping to 1.7 per cent of the population in 2015 – equivalent to about 129,000 people. In 2013, 1.3 per cent of Swedes said they were victims, and before that, between 2005 and 2012, the level of reported sexual crimes had remained relatively stable, hovering around the 1

Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, had an unfortunate turn of phrase the other day. She said it’s the mission of the press to “control exactly what people think.” My suspicion is that this was less a Freudian slip than a simple slip-up. Brzezinski was referring to her fear that President Trump may be trying to control the way people think by discrediting the media — whom he calls “enemies of the American people” — and she lost her rhetorical footing, stumbling into saying that mind control is “our job.” But the misstatement resonated with a lot of people,

An upbeat Hillary Clinton popped back into the political spotlight Friday with a three-minute address to Democrats, applauding them for being the ´resistance´ against President Donald Trump. She urged her party to ´keep fighting and keep the faith,´ while adding, ´I´ll be there right with you every step of the way.´ Clinton´s message was released in conjunction with the Democrats´ meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, where they´ll decide new Democratic National Committee leadership tomorrow. But Clinton´s frequent forays back into the limelight suggest she could still write another political chapter post-2016. She´s called out the new president several times on Twitter, writing simply ´3-0´

   

 

  


 
Boehner: Republicans won´t

Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is “not going to happen.” Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid unrest among conservatives, said at an Orlando health care conference that the idea that a repeal-and-replace plan would blitz through Congress is just “happy talk.” Instead, he said changes to former President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement would likely be relatively modest. “[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said. Boehner’s comments come as Republican lawmakers across the country are facing angry constituents

The White House blocked a number of news outlets from covering spokesman Sean Spicer’s question-and-answer session on Friday afternoon. Spicer decided to hold an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the traditional on-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. Among the outlets not permitted to cover the gaggle were news organizations President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN. The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, BBC, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Daily News were among the other news organizations not permitted to attend.

According to an exclusive in Us Weekly, Hillary Clinton was approached about being on Dancing with the Stars‘s 24th season. The Democratic former nominee for president declined the offer, although her shimmy would have undoubtedly won her the popular vote.

Why Did Greenland’s Vikings Vanish?

On the grassy slope of a fjord near the southernmost tip of Greenland stand the ruins of a church built by Viking settlers more than a century before Columbus sailed to the Americas. The thick granite-block walls remain intact, as do the 20-foot-high gables. The wooden roof, rafters and doors collapsed and rotted away long ago. Now sheep come and go at will, munching wild thyme where devout Norse Christian converts once knelt in prayer. The Vikings called this fjord Hvalsey, which means “Whale Island” in Old Norse. It was here that Sigrid Bjornsdottir wed Thorstein Olafsson on Sunday, September

An image of White House advisor Stephen Miller is making the rounds on the internet — and it allegedly shows him making the “white power” hand gesture on live TV. Except, as Mediaite so eloquently pointed out, he was just fixing his tie before appearing on “Face the Nation.” Take a look at the picture in question: (Tweet/Photo) DailyKOS made a point on February 21 to insist that Miller is a white supremacist and that his gesture was some sort of anti-Semitic, “white power” shout out. Here´s their reasoning behind such a strong accusation. The right hand, on top, is
