Chuck Schumer Waves White Flag in Border Wall “Meme Wars”

Chuck Schumer really doesn’t get it, does he?

Chuck Schumer

As the world around our federal government changes, we are often saddled with older and more traditional politicians who don’t quite mesh with the average demographic of the American people.

On the left side of the aisle, that’s more true than ever these days as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer begin their congressional reigns again in 2019.

Pelosi, who is famous for her either real or imagined senility, has been caught on camera mumbling, misspeaking, and completely botching her own message in innumerable now-viral videos.  Her speaking issues have been so bad as of late that her own daughter appeared on television recently to shore up support for the again House Speaker.

Now, Chuck Schumer is demonstrating just how far out of touch he is as well, displaying his dismay at the current state of affairs on the internet.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) did not see the humor in the Game of Thrones memes President Donald Trump used to announce his plans to build a wall along the U.S. southern border, telling him he had “enough.”

“Enough with the memes,” the New York Democrat senator tweeted in response to Trump’s wall meme. “Just quit hurting innocent people and re-open the government.”

Trump shared a Game of Thrones-style image on his social media accounts Thursday, announcing his intention to build the border wall despite opposition from Democrats.

The image featured a picture of the president with the phrase “The Wall is Coming,” in homage to the Game of Thrones TV show’s slogan “Winter is Coming.”

The bottom of the image depicted the president’s ideal “steel slats” barrier for the proposed wall along the U.S. southern border.

Of course, what Chuck is really saying is that he’d rather not see how We The People truly feel.

It’s obvious that Donald Trump isn’t creating these images himself, rather, he is cultivating them from the plethora of border wall supporters around the nation.  Schumer’s inability, (or unwillingness), to recognize that his party is out of sync with the American public is what we’ve had enough of.

“Bias Response Teams” are Nullifying The First Amendment at Portland State

When free speech dies, so too does America herself.

first amendment

A terrifying new authority has arrived on the campus of Portland State, and their purpose is to police the language used anywhere on the property. The idea is simple enough:  If you or one of your colleagues finds yourself either offended, or concerned that someone else could be offended, by something that just occurred on campus, you can call the “Bias Response Team” to come “investigate”…or whatever it is that they do. Yes, this is a real thing, and not some dystopian, concept-opinion piece I’m trying out. Members of the campus community at Portland State better think twice about making a joke on campus — it could very well lead to their names being reported to the university’s bias response team. Two bias reports filed at the public institution last fall were against people making jokes or similar off-hand comments on campus, according to documents obtained by The College Fix through a public records act request. Just how bad were the jokes? In one case from last September, a student overheard someone in their classroom making a comment about sometimes feeling like they having schizophrenia. “She then stated she was not trying to make fun of schizophrenia,” the student reported, “but that sometimes she can be ‘schizophrenic.’ … She stated this in a joking manner and even laughed about it.” Now let’s look to the future, when you are perhaps looking for a job, or perhaps a career in politics, and your “bias response team” report finds its way to Wikileaks.  Now, instead of focusing on who stands before you today, you are either tainted by or forced to spend time explaining the situation that led to your being included in such a wildly subjective, yet somehow serious report. Worse still is that comedy is one of the last real safe harbors for free speech…

Americans are Turning Away from Mainstream Media’s Monsters

This media malady has maintained course for too long, and the American people are growing tired of it.

mainstream media

The division that we see in our current society is unacceptable, but the loud, crashing, rapid fire mortars of the mainstream media have us so disorientated that we cannot see it. At any time of the day, you could turn on the television and watch two grown adults shout at each other over politics.  There are channel after channel devoted to this very idea; that we can induce catharsis living vicariously through the talking heads on the television. At times, it is even barbaric.  There are nuclear moments that go viral, adding fuel to this fire of fervor and frenzy.  Then, these snippets get snatched out of context and weaponized on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. It has put us all at each other’s throats, and that is not what this great nation is all about. This media malady has maintained course for too long, and the American people are growing tired of it. A new poll shows trouble for the figurative tip of the mainstream media spear, CNN. Last place CNN’s already humiliating ratings nosedived by double digits last week. Even more than usual, some ten days ago the far-left CNN launched a 24/7 jihad against President Trump, going so far as to question his mental health, his patriotism, blaming him for a mass murder in New Zealand, and serial lying about his response to Charlottesville. But this unhinged hate campaign obviously turned off a considerable number of Americans. When compared to this same week last year, CNN lost -16 percent of its primetime viewers and -17 of total day viewers; young people ran away screaming: In the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo, CNN shed an incredible -31 percent of those viewers during primetime and -29 percent in total day. Even more telling still are the metrics available to us that compare CNN to their rival…
