CBS Anchor Makes FB Post Defending Kavanaugh. Here’s What He Was Forced to do Right After.

Published

A local CBS anchor from Palm Springs, California has fallen victim to the egregious political correctness that is now sweeping across our country and infecting every single part of our culture after posting a defense of Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Facebook.

Kris Long has been handed a pink slip by KESQ-TV for the post, demonstrating that the only tolerance coming out of the left is tolerance for folks who are part of their group think mentality.

In a since-deleted post, Long announced that, according to the new standards, he “couldn’t get elected dog catcher!”

“Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is now having to answer for his actions as a 17 year old!” wrote Long (full text below). “I have absolutely no problem with the Metoo movement. In fact, I would offer that it is long overdue. Far too many women have been subjected to mistreatment for far too long by men with the power to control their lives and paychecks. I have absolutely no sympathy for the increasingly long list of well-known names who have fallen from grace because they thought with their little head and not their big one.”

He continued: “However, you are beyond dreaming if you think 17 year old boys are not going to misbehave from time to time as they begin to attempt relationships with the opposite sex. That is just the way we animals are made! Now, that certainly does not in any way mean that a 17 year old should be allowed to force himself on a young girl. That illegal act is reprehensible at 17, 37, or 77. But to allow someone to accuse a fellow teenager of some lesser miscreant behavior from some four decades ago is, I feel, a real stretch.”

He added later: “If he did actually commit rape as a 17 year old, which has not been claimed, then he should be prosecuted. However, if the act was that serious, and few things are more serious than rape, why has it taken all these many years for his accuser to come forward! This just stinks of political maneuvering. I fear the day may be coming when some otherwise deserving office seeker is deemed unacceptable due to accidentally bumping the leg of a kindergartner of the opposite sex during nap time!”

Now this seems like a simple, level-headed approach to the whole issue that doesn’t lean to heavily to one side or the other, right? Well, that’s exactly the problem for the good folks at Long’s former network. They want a good little automaton who will just go along with the progressive program.

A day before Kavanaugh was confirmed, the channel accepted Long’s resignation. “I want to thank those who have offered support and apologize again for any I may have offended. I hope to return to the news business in the future,” he wrote in a statement Friday. “I wish I hadn’t written (the post) because it’s caused me a lot of headache. This is a sensitive and controversial subject and I apologize for any offense that this has caused.”

Long has also deleted the original post, replacing it with an apology for daring to post his own thoughts and opinions on the subject. Totally unacceptable that he was shamed into apologizing for his comments.

The left truly has no conception of actual right and wrong, nor what it looks like to engage in compelling discussions on important issues facing the country. Sad.

Colorado Mayor Bans Pledge of Allegiance Because It’s Not Legitimate

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

The left-wing Mayor of Silverton, Colorado, Shane Fuhrman, unilaterally banned the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance because he finds it unnecessary. Mayor Furhman insisted that the Pledge isn’t even legitimate, saying, “it’s not really a thing,” when he argued against reciting the pledge, according to the Denver Patch. The issue came up last year when the city began meeting over zoom because of the coronavirus. At that time, it was decided that the council members who didn’t want to recite the pledge would just turn off their computer cameras during the segment of the meeting. But even during that period, the mayor’s request to ditch the pledge was voted down 4-3. However, now that the meetings are back to in-person, the mayor simply acted unilaterally and ended the recitation of the Pledge. “Due to the direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of our public meetings, and general divisiveness and issues created in our community, we will not be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance during Town of Silverton trustee meetings,” Fuhrman said during theJune 14 meeting. Fuhrman went on to demand that if anyone had proof in the city’s rules saying he could not make such a decision they better speak up. “If you’d like to find somewhere in the code, something that doesn’t permit me to do this,” he said, “then I welcome that discussion at our next meetings.” At least one council member was not happy with the decision. Trustee Molly Barela reminded the mayor that they had already voted to continue reciting the pledge, and added, “It’s been done for a long time. We all took an oath, and we as a board we decided it would be done.” Members of the public who were in attendance at the meeting were no less supportive…

Promise Broken: 60 Percent of Americans Will Suffer Tax Hike Under Biden’s Plan

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan.

Biden ran for office repeatedly claiming that no one making less than $400K would pay more in taxes under his plan. We are now seeing that Biden lied. The Tax Policy Center released new data on the realities of Biden’s tax proposals and found that Biden’s policies will slam middle and low-income taxpayers right where it hurts. The organization says that 99.8 percent of Americans earning between $500,00 and $1million will pay an average of $8,810 more in taxes each year under Biden’s tax plan. This might be in keeping with Biden’s campaign pledge that only “the rich” will pay more. But the TPC also found that people who make far less will also get hit under Biden. The center says that people making between $75,000 and $500,00 will also get pinched. This is not as a result of direct taxes on income but of the impact of the other hikes in rates, such as the corporate tax rise. According to the Daily Mail: Three-quarters of households earning between $75,000 and $100,000 annually would face paying an additional $440 per year in taxes under Biden’s tax hikes, according to the data released last week. About 69 percent of those earning between $100,000 and $200,000 would see their yearly tax bill rise by $830 on average, according to the analysis. Meanwhile, 83.7 percent of those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of $2,040 on average. But most Americans will be impacted indirectly by Biden’s giant tax hike. “For those looking to see if Biden kept his promise to not raise taxes for those making $400,000 or less, the answer is: Mostly, but not entirely,” wrote Howard Gleckman, a senior fellow at the Tax Policy Center. “Including corporate tax increases, most households would pay more in 2022. About three-quarters…
