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.

CNN Anchor Goes on Insulting Rant Against the Unvaccinated

Oh, spare us the drama, Chris.

Published

When it comes to the heated and prolonged debate that this nation has been having on the subject of vaccines, it is just about impossible to say something that won’t offend somebody. This is the Coke versus Pepsi of the 2020’s; the Yankees/Red Sox of medicine.  There is no grey area, and there is no middle ground. And, if you had any doubt about what side of the argument CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo were on, you needn’t worry any longer. Anchor Don Lemon said, “I still am flummoxed by the misinformation over the vaccine, people refusing to get vaccinated and also refusing to wear masks. Every day seems like it gets worse. And I don’t mean that. I mean the people who are dying, who are actually coming down with it, especially the children… I mean, just heartbreaking.” And then came the insults… Cuomo said, “People seen with significant cases and hospitalizations are getting younger. Part of the metric here is ignorance, but part of it is also arrogance, this misplaced sense of righteous indignation, and resistance that they believe is a false manifestation of freedom. This is not an issue of freedom. Of course, you have freedom to make choices about your own body. Let’s put to the side the irony that so many of these people don’t want to afford that freedom to women. But what we’re saying is, does it mean it’s the right choice? And these suggestions, I think the vaccine is safe, but you have the freedom to take it, but I don’t know that the science lines up, but I don’t know why they’re changing the guidance. These suggestions feel resistance. I think it’s a mistake.” Vaccine hesitancy is believed to account for a majority of the unvaccinated population in America today.

Longrunning Music Festival to Require Vaccines and COVID Tests This Summer

The entire American social order could be shuffled as these sorts of mandates spread.

Published

Whether or not the medical experts or the liberal left are ready to admit it, the fact of the matter is this:  Only about half of this nation is going to willingly receive a COVID-19 vaccination at this time. They have their reasons for abstaining.  Some are simply waiting for the FDA to fully authorize the inoculation, as opposed to releasing it with “emergency use authorization”, as is the case currently. Others are very cognizant of their bodily sovereignty, and they believe that refusing to partake at this time helps to keep a potentially overzealous government from getting any ideas. And, of course, there are those whose ideas are a little wilder, who tell tales of implanted microchips and the mark of the beast. Seeing as the government hasn’t yet had the stomach for mandating the vaccines themselves, there are a number of private companies who are taking matters into their own hands.  This includes one of the most popular music festivals in the United States. The hordes of people expected to descend on Chicago’s Grant Park for the Lollapalooza music festival this week will be required to show proof that they’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 or tested negative for the disease within the last three days. The four-day festival starts Thursday and is expected to be back at full capacity, with roughly 100,000 daily attendees. After missing last summer because of the threat of the coronavirus, it will easily be Chicago’s largest gathering since the pandemic started, and one of the country’s. The setup will be strict. This year’s festival will look very different than in the past. To gain entry, attendees will have to present their vaccination cards or a printed copy of a negative COVID-19 test that is no more than 72 hours old. That means that anyone with a…
