Alyssa Milano Once Again Tweets About The Constitution. Once Again It Goes Very, Very Badly

Just because you CAN speak your mind, doesn’t mean you SHOULD speak your mind…

Actress and extremely outspoken leftist Alyssa Milano has really been doing her best to get involved in hashtag activism, hoping to revitalize her career with her new found, unabashed “wokeness,” which is really just a desperate ploy to regain a bit of relevance.

Unfortunately, a lot of the comments she makes, especially on Twitter end up making her look ridiculous, like any other celebrity attempting to speak on issues they don’t understand in order to get a refill on the whole 15 minutes of fame deal.

Well, it seems Milano has really stepped in it now, as she decided to weigh in on the Fourteenth Amendment not being intended for women. That didn’t go over well. At all.

The constitutional debate got rolling with Milano accusing House Speaker Paul Ryan (who happens to be a Republican) of supposedly not believing that women should have equal protection under the Constitution (h/t Twitchy).

“I asked for a meeting with @SpeakerRyan today—to discuss equality for women and the Equal Rights Amendment—he declined,” tweeted Milano. “96% of Americans believe that women should be protected under the constitution. He is the 4%. #ERANow”

That post prompted this reply quoting the 14th Amendment:

Milano responded by asserting that the 14th Amendment was “clearly” not intended to apply to women because they couldn’t vote when it was written.

“Hi. The 14th amendment was included in the constitution before women even had the right to vote so clearly it was not meant to apply to us,” she wrote.

Here’s how others responded to her statement:

Look, all American citizens have the right to speak their mind, to share their worldview and attempt to persuade others of its validity without worrying about being shut down by the government. That’s the First Amendment in all of its glory.

However, just because you can speak your mind, doesn’t mean you should speak your mind. Especially if you have no earthly idea what you’re actually talking about.

In other words, if Milano is going to engage in politics, perhaps a study course on the Constitution should be high a high priority on her “to do list?”

Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…

Tuckers Crosses Blue Line, Attacks Capitol Police Officer Set to Testify at Capitol

The officer’s lawyers were quick to respond.

Tucker Carlson

It is well understood that passion is a large part of the punditry game.  Human beings want to know that the person delivering their news is invested in the story, (for some reason), and the primetime players are all very aware of this fact. But there are times in which the rabbit hole that they’re chasing stories down becomes too dark, too cavernous for even the most skilled orator, or the fastest on-their-feet thinkers that we have. Sometimes things go a little far in the mainstream media, and the nation at large leers in to rebuke the extremes. Tucker Carlson may very well be having one of these moments. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson sparked outcry Wednesday night when he called Black Capitol police officer Harry Dunn an “angry left-wing political activist.” “On Tuesday, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi will call on police officer Harry Dunn. Dunn will pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry, left-wing political activist,” said Carlson, referring to Dunn’s forthcoming testimony in front of the Congressional committee converged to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 riot. He pointed to social media posts Dunn, who is Black, has made about racism before. The backlash came swiftly. Dunn’s lawyers, David Laufman and Mark Zaid, released a statementWednesday night that read, “Tonight Fox News allowed its host Tucker Carlson, who has not served a day in uniform, whether military or law enforcement, to criticize the heroism and service of African-American U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Our client has served 13 years in law enforcement and on January 6, 2021, fought against an insurrectionist violent crowd — no doubt many of them Carlson’s supporters — to protect the lives of our elected officials, including…
