Academics Who ‘Sellout’ Leftism Beware, Hillary’s Campaign Press Secretary is Coming After You

Published

on

Hillary Clinton’s former 2016 campaign press secretary, Brian Fallon, is not at all happy with academics who, according to his words “sellout leftism,” and has stated on Twitter he has a plan to carry out revenge against anyone who dares to break from the party line.

Given how evil and vindictive the left can be, especially those involved with the Clintons, is this sort of thing really all that surprising? Liberals hate it when folks actually think through individual issues by examining the facts for themselves rather than just adopting wholesale the Democratic Party platform.

So what’s Fallon going to do? Put them on a list.

Fallon has an extensive Democratic Party resume, having worked on the Kerry-Edwards campaign as a press aide in 2004, on the Robert Menendez 2006 senatorial campaign in a similar position, then later becoming chief spokesman for New York Senator Chuck Schumer. In 2011 he became the spokesman for the Senate Democratic Policy and Communications Center. In 2013 he moved to the Justice Department as the department’s director of public affairs under Attorney General Eric Holder.

In December 2015, after Hillary Clinton refused to apologize for falsely claiming that videos of Donald Trump’s statements regarding Islamic terrorism were being used by ISIS to recruit Muslims, Fallon stated, “Hell no. Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists. The person that needs to apologize in this matter is Donald Trump, for his hateful bigoted rhetoric toward Muslim Americans.”

Fallon was likely one of the “snotty-nosed kids” Bill Clinton referred to in late March 2016 when he reportedly snapped, “Those snotty-nosed kids over there are blowing this thing because nobody is listening to me.'”

Fallon’s suggestion was met with harsh online criticism:

Isn’t it ironic that so many on the left call conservatives “Hitler” and “Nazi” when it’s actually their behavior that more closely mirrors that sort of a belief system?

What really makes this hilarious is that by and large, the vast majority of leftists don’t even realize that’s how they are, making them completely clueless to their own hypocrisy.

At the end of the day, a person should be valued for their desire to approach issues with an analytical, critical mind, not just towing the line and believing something because everyone else believes it. That’s ridiculous.

Too bad they don’t value individualism. Guess it’s a bad idea to dare to go against the hive.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
