DAVIDSON: The Left Virtue-Signals to Mask Its Intolerance

No truer words.

This election season, when driving through towns in central North Carolina, my adopted home state, you’ll see signs on front lawns or in picture windows that say, “Love trumps hate,” “Love is the answer,” or, “Hate has no home here.” On car bumpers you’ll see stickers proclaiming, “No hate in my state.” You probably see the same thing.

Such virtue-signalers are quick to post BLM signs, just so you know that they are sufficiently ‘woke.’ They fervently believe that all conservatives, and President Trump, and anyone who votes for him, are a hate-filled despicable lot, who dislike immigrants, children, old people, dogs, and clean air.

Sheltered for decades in the liberal mainstream media bubble, these yard sign bearers have a contorted world view. For them, all news and information arrives filtered through the New York Times, Washington Post, L.A. Times, Chicago Tribune, AP, Reuters, NPR, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, etc.

The Left erroneously espouses that our President hates immigrants, a contention that is simply wrong: He doesn’t want endless floods of illegal immigrants arriving, especially when orchestrated by Leftist groups continually seeking to undermine U.S. sovereignty.

Illegal immigrants storm our borders and overrun our facilities. Contrary to Leftist drivel, they account for a disproportionately high amount of crime. They jump ahead of people who’ve been waiting in line legally for months, or years, to become U.S. citizens.

The misguided Left contends that President Trump is an anti-Semite. This is ridiculous on its face, as Ivanka Trump Kushner, his politically prominent daughter, converted to Judaism to marry a Jew, and her three children – his three grandchildren – are all Jewish. Moreover, Trump’s support for Israel is unyielding.

Even as his minority support triples over that of 2016, the Left would have you believe that Donald Trump is a racist who harms Black people. Yet, before he ran for president, he was honored on numerous occasions by the NAACP and other African-American groups. Amazingly, the nano-second he ran for president, that all changed!

Proclaiming Much, While Knowing Little

The Left always knows best, even when they know little, which is most of the time. Consider Townhall.com and all the links from here to other news and editorial organizations. If members of the Left occasionally proceeded beyond the mainstream liberal media bubble, in which they are firmly ensconced, and read more widely, these cloistered folks might realize that it is Democrats, ‘progressives’, and liberals, in general, who promulgate most of the hate in society today.

‘Love trumps hate’ is a pleasant thought, and an intriguing notion. Thus, it is shameful that Leftists are so venomous. Here are a few items and issues, out of scores more, that many of those on the Left loath:

People who disagree with them politically, fair and effective voter I.D. laws, acknowledging the cerebral differences between men and women, encountering acts of patriotism, free speech on campus (unless of course they agree with it), merit-based college acceptance, acknowledging the rights of the unborn, anyone who does not conform to political ‘correctness,’ maintaining U.S. sovereignty via secure borders, and African Americans who deign not to be Democrats.

Also, news features about illegal immigrant crime, anyone who is deeply religious except Muslims, school vouchers, returning power to state and local school boards, anyone who runs for, or wins, office as a Republican or Libertarian, and seeing 20,000+ people at Trump rallies (peaceful protest), with thousands more outside who wanted to attend — as Joe Biden draws 10 to 50 people, if that many.

Less Tolerant than Conservatives

Pew researchers found that liberals actually are less tolerant than conservatives based on liberal’s tendency to “unfriend” or to stop following someone a social media site when their viewpoints are challenged.

“Roughly four-in-ten consistent liberals on Facebook (44%) indicated they have blocked or de-friended someone” because they “disagreed with something that person posted about politics.” Only “31% of consistent conservatives” and 26% of Facebook users overall have acted similarly.

Could their ingrained lack of tolerance be the driving force behind their propensity to engage in virtue-signaling? Methinks, yes!

While liberals seek to feign, within them intolerance reigns.

What Does Bill Gates Plan to Do After He Vaccinates the World Population?

I am not going to tell you to stay as far away from the experimental COVID-19 mRNA gene modification injection as you would a rattlesnake in West Texas. You will just have to decide for yourself after my explanation.    You are probably well aware that family members, friends, your doctor, your employer, businesses and government agencies will attempt to coerce and force you to take the experimental COVID-19 mRNA gene modification injection, so don’t you think it’s important for you to make an informed decision?   No one may coerce or force you to take the experimental COVID-19 gene modification injection. This violates the Nuremberg Code which was established after the Nuremberg trials after World War II. The Nazi doctors who performed experiments on Jewish prisoners at the concentration camps were found guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death. The Nuremberg Code specifically forbids experimentation on individuals without their informed consent. Not only does forced experimentation violate the Nuremberg Code, but it also violates federal law.    If you are being coerced or forced to take the experimental COVID-19 gene modification injection and need legal help to fight this violation of your rights and liberties, then please feel free to contact my office at 281.698.8698. A member of my staff will give you the name of an attorney who will fight to defend your rights.   How and Why the Plandemic Got Started   This coronavirus plandemic appears to have been initiated by Bill Gates and his New World Order co-conspirators at Event 201, a high level pandemic exercise conducted in New York City on October 18, 2019.

MTG Takes Heat from GOP Over ‘Disgusting’, ‘Nativist’ Caucus

Marjorie Taylor Greene is rising eyebrows on the right once again.

The political spectrum has been widening over recent years, thanks in no small part to the influence of the internet.  Now, the whole system we use to exchange information has expanded enormously, bringing with it a way for folks with extreme ideals to collaborate. In the political world, we see it in the difference between Democrats like President Joe Biden and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  On the right, a good example might be Mitch McConnell as the moderate and Marjorie Taylor Greene as the extremist. This week, Marjorie Taylor Greene again made headlines for her radical right wing ideas. Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, who is not on any congressional committees, is forming her own “America First” caucus based on “Anglo-Saxon political traditions.” Membership hasn’t been announced, but Rep. Barry Moore of Alabama said he’s interested, as is Rep. Louie Gohmert. Rep. Matt Gaetz, who faces a House ethics investigation as well as a federal sex trafficking case, tweeted that he’s in. Greene’s office confirmed the launch Friday, CNN reports. Many members of the GOP didn’t take too kindly to the idea, however. Several Republicans immediately attacked the idea. “The Republican Party is the party of Lincoln & the party of more opportunity for all Americans—not nativist dog whistles,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted. “Completely disgusted,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger posted. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 Republican in the House, posted that Republicans teach tolerance. “Racism, nativism, and anti-Semitism are evil. History teaches we all have an obligation to confront & reject such malicious hate,” Cheney wrote. Greene has been a controversial figure throughout her early political career, having drawn the ire of her peers on several prior occasions.
