Gay Actor Says Not All Republicans Are Racist, Leftists Rake Him Over The Coals

Published

Gay actor Jonathan Van Ness, star of the Netflix reboot “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” recently made a controversial statement that has made him a target by fellow liberals who exhibited their abundance of tolerance by then taking him behind the proverbial woodshed.

What did Van Ness say that was so bad? He dared to state an obvious fact: not all Republicans are racists.

This sent shock waves through the entire entertainment industry apparently.

Jonathan Van Ness, who is far from Republican, dared to tell fans in a Twitter explanation of Tuesday’s nights favorable Democratic primary results that they should be “tolerant” of other points of view and not immediately assume everyone who disagrees with them politically is, by definition, evil.

Looking for political compromise, Van Ness noted, can lead to victories.

“Luckily a lot [of] extreme right people won yesterday, meaning that if we can come up w center left candidates we can take back the house & senate, not to mention many state legislatures. It is so important for the left to not go too left or we are done for,” Van Ness tweeted.

“Not all republicans are racist,” he added, in a second Tweet, issued a bit later. “Just like not all democrars [sic] are evil, we have to stop demonizing each other,” he continued. “Unless you’re actually racist then you suck, Trump is Racist – not all his voters are necessarily we gotta remember we are all in this together.”

That, it turns out, was the wrong thing to say. Twitter — and Van Ness’ mentions, no doubt — lit up, as leftists took the reality television makeover show star to task for so much as suggesting his political allies come into contact with anyone who might challenge their views.

While conservatives may disagree with Van Ness’ lifestyle choices, there’s a lot truth to what he said. Most voters in America are not far left or far right, but fall somewhere in the middle. Centrist candidates on both sides tend to fair better than those who are further to the left or right.

Amazingly, the backlash Van Ness received isn’t leaving him phased in the slightest, which is a darn good thing.

It’s a sad day in America when a person can call for humility and civility between individuals and end up getting slammed for it. This is how far divided folks have become. Let’s hope that changes soon.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Twitter Blacklists Investigative Journalist After CNN Exposé

Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.

The mainstream media really doesn’t like to lose.  In fact, much of their thirst for power over their rivals is simply so that they can continue to bully us into watching. And with so many organizations completely aware of how this horrible system is set up, outlets with similar world views tend to look out for one another – particularly when it comes to attack from the other side of the media spectrum. Americans on Friday were beginning to accuse Twitter of doing just that. Critics accused Twitter Thursday of banning Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe from its platform over the right-wing guerrilla news outlet’s damning exposé of CNN. Project Veritas relaunched its #ExposeCNN campaign this week by sharing footage of CNN technical director Charles Chester revealing the liberal network’s dirty laundry. In the footage, Chester claimed that CNN’s “focus” during the 2020 election campaign was to “get rid of” President Trump, that the network hyped its coronavirus coverage for “gangbuster” ratings, and that it aims to “help” Black Lives Matter. On Thursday, O’Keefe’s Twitter account, which was sharing Project Veritas’ reporting, was permanently suspended over alleged use of “fake accounts.” “As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News. This would be akin to a publisher retweeting a post that one of their authors had written, advertising the book that they collaborated on. Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.
