How liberals squelch
opposing points of view

Philadelphia Daily News, by Stu Bykofsky

Original Article

Posted By:Calvinesq, 1/11/2017 11:22:17 AM

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.

She´s just now figuring that out???

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 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

WASHINGTON — As America’s first family enjoys its eighth and final vacation in Hawaii, new estimates put the price tag of the Obamas’ annual trip at $3.5 million or more. In total, the cost of the the first family’s personal or largely personal travel during the last eight years comes to $85 million – though that is likely to climb to $90 million after additional records are released, according to the conservative group Judicial Watch based on federal government records.

PITTSBURGH - For more than a century, the death of David Pierce has been a stain on Western Pennsylvania as the only victim of a lynching in the region. The African American man was said to have shot and killed Sanford White, a white superintendent of a coke works near Dunbar, Fayette County, on the morning of Dec. 19, 1899, after Mr. White intervened during a fight between Mr. Pierce and another white coke executive, Richard Cunningham. Pierce was described as a "Negro" and a "dangerous character" in the initial news report that went out over the telegraph coast to

Obama Administration Yanks Second
Amendment Rights from SSI Recipients
PJ Media, by Liz Sheld    Original Article
Posted By: Calvinesq- 12/28/2016 4:27:31 PM     Post Reply
Last week, the Obama administration put the finishing touches on a new policy that would deprive recipients of disability insurance and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) of their Second Amendment rights. The administration will now characterize those citizens as "mental defectives," thereby having their ability to own a firearm subject to the federal Gun Control Act. Supplemental Security Income helps blind, disabled, and elderly people with little to no income. Previously, it was understood that "mentally defective" referred to one´s mental health. Citizens who have been institutionalized against their will are restricted from owning a firearm. The new definition of "mentally

Israel Cabinet Minister Calls

JERUSALEM -- A senior Israeli Cabinet minister on Wednesday called U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry´s planned Mideast policy speech a "pathetic step," further heightening tensions between the two close allies as the Obama administration prepares to leave office. The comments by Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan were the latest salvo in a toxic exchange following the U.S.´s refusal to veto a U.N. Security Council resolution last week that called Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem a violation of international law. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has slammed the resolution, and accused the U.S. of colluding with

Random Thoughts, Looking Back

Any honest man, looking back on a very long life, must admit -- even if only to himself -- being a relic of a bygone era. Having lived long enough to have seen both "the greatest generation" that fought World War II and the gratingest generation that we see all around us today, makes being a relic of the past more of a boast than an admission. Not everything in the past was admirable. Poet W.H. Auden called the 1930s "a low dishonest decade." So were the 1960s, which launched many of the trends we are experiencing so painfully today.

They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae. Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation. One letter,

Marco Rubio (R-FL) said he “hoped” the Trump would have responded differently “given everything that John Lewis means to our country.” Rubio said, “I have tremendous admiration for Congressman Lewis, not only for what he has done but what he stand for, and that remains undiminished.

A growing group of Democratic lawmakers will boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday as a protest of Trump’s worldview and his criticism of civil rights icon John Lewis, congressman of Georgia. There are now more than 30 House Democrats — 31, at last count — who have declared that they will not attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill this week. The number rose sharply after Trump tweeted Saturday that Lewis is “all talk, talk, talk” and should “finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities.” Lewis, who sees Trump’s Nov. 8 win as illegitimate because of Russia’s alleged interference

President-elect Donald Trump will be the least popular man to take the oath of office in four decades – and he enters the White House with a popularity rating just half of what Barack Obama´s was eight years ago. Trump scored an approval rating of just 40 percent in a new CNN / ORC poll. His approval rating was identical in an ABC News / Washington Post poll. Trump doesn´t appear to won over converts through his handling of the transition period. Disapproval of his transition handling has jumped to 52 per cent in the CNN poll, an increase of 7 points from

President Barack Obama announced his plan to free Chelsea Manning (who changed his name from Bradley) after leaking classified military documents to Wikileaks and being sentenced to 35 years in prison for his crimes. Once in prison, Manning went on a hunger strike to demand sex change surgery in prison, which was granted by officials at the cost of American taxpayers. Obama included Manning on a list of prisoner commutations announced late Tuesday afternoon, allowing him to be set free on May 17, 2017. During the White House press briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest noted the “stark” differences between Manning and

On Friday, the world will watch the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C. at noon as Donald Trump gets sworn in as our nation’s 45th Commander in Chief. Following the event, Trump will march to the White House and begin a long weekend of galas, balls, and meetings to kick off his administration. But as for his predecessor, President Barack Obama? It’ll be time to relax. According to a new report from TMZ, Obama and his family will be leaving for sunny Palm Springs, California on Friday afternoon while the Beltway prepares for the start of the
