DAVIDSON: The Left Virtue-Signals to Mask Its Intolerance

No truer words.

Jeff Davidson

Published

on

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.

Erroneous Contentions Galore

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.

Topics:
1) The debt ceiling fight is a lie – Democrats can pass this on straight party line vote – They don’t want to do that – It exposes their overspending
2) Pelosi continues to hold hostage the $1.2T Infrastructure Bill that 80% of Americans want – Why? – I’ll explain
3) Biden want the IRS to have access to YOUR bank account for any transaction over $600 – The current limit is $10,000 – This could be part of the $3.5T bill
*Pelosi: “No $3.5T bill on the House floor until it passes the Senate”
4) WHERE IS VP HARRIS? Biden acknowledges the Border is NOT under control – 117K migrants were release last month into the interior of the U.S. – That’s 50% folks – He is sending them to swing states in a diabolical plan
*A Democratic Texas border judge claims Biden caused ALL of this and he must be held accountable – “He is alienating us”
*Haitians hijack multiple buses
5) Initial Jobless claims increased to 351K, Continuing claims are at 2.8M, 11.25M are getting benefits but that’s down 856K from last month
*The good news is that 7.0M benefits are being completely cut out as a result of expiring benefits – It’s about time
*3.0M more will lose the extra $300 monthly benefit paid by the Federal government – That’s also good news
*We have about 11M job openings in this country – Maybe now the jobs can begin to be filled
6) Democrats and the Media FEAR Trump – first it was Russian Collusion lies, now they are pitching a non existing narrative that Trump was going to attack China despite ZERO evidence
*They are trying to deflect blame from Biden’s humiliating performance in Afghanistan, embarrassment with France and Haiti and the Border crisis
7) Biden delivers an incoherent weak speech at the UN – He literally could not read the teleprompter – It was a debacle

POTUS Finally Recognizes That Border Crisis Isn’t ‘Under Control’

Took him long enough!

Published

on

From the very moment that Joe Biden was elected President, it was rather apparent that there would be ruble eon the southern border.  The already-unsustainable migrant surges were sure to increase in both size and frequency as those looking to enter the country illegally believed that a Democratic President would surely be more lenient than his predecessor when it comes to enforcement.

Spoiler alert:  They weren’t wrong.

Now, as many in this nation are hoping and praying that the Biden administration would get their head out of the sand and actually address the issue, there appears to be at least some understanding among the Biden-ites as to the severity of the humanitarian crisis unfolding in Texas and beyond.

President Joe Biden admitted on September 21 that the U.S. border with Mexico has slipped out of control under the watch of pro-migration zealot Alejandro Mayorkas.

The admission came when he answered a reporters’ shouted question: “Mr. President, what is your reaction to the images coming from the southern border? ”

“We will get it under control,” Biden replied testily.

The admission comes as Senator Ted Cruz lashed out at New York City Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her hypocritical approach to border advocacy, and just days after a disturbing images went viral, depicting Border Patrol agents on horseback chasing migrants, and threatening them with the reins of their steeds.
