Media Gets “Build The Wall” Novelty Toy All Wrong

The mainstream media can’t seem to wrap their heads around a very simple concept here.

One of the wildest stories to find its way into the mainstream media this week was that of a novelty brick-building toy being sold online.

The somewhat silly and hilarious toy depicts a Lego-like Donald Trump and a “build your own wall” set of bricks behind him.

Of course, the liberal left was up in arms.

Much of ire surrounding the toy came under the impression that it was being marketed toward children specifically, which, according to Keep and Bear CEO Brandon Vallorani, just isn’t the case.

While the product description says it’s great for children, Vallorani says, “We believe that the vast majority of our customers will want it as a collectible.”

He says he’s not against children playing with toys that promote a political message. “The majority of our customers are over the age of 40, not children. But even so, politics are already being pushed on our kids every day in public school classrooms and through much of mainstream media,” he argues. “I believe all American citizens have the right to teach their children to examine political conversation and make their own decisions.”

Furthermore, Vallorani made it clear that he was in no way opposed to immigration, having been descended from immigrants himself.

For those offended by this toy, he wants to clear the air. “Some people who disagree with our political stance are claiming that we are against immigrants/immigration.” But Vallorani insists, “Nothing could be further from the truth.”

And for those who still believe that the toy is in bad taste…

“So far the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “Most people understand it’s just a novelty item.” He says the toy is “not at all” meant to be taken seriously. “Toys aren’t meant to be serious. Life is already stressful enough for people of all ages. This gift was meant to bring some lighthearted comic relief to the intense political debate,” he clarifies. “These toys are really just cool collectibles.”

Mitch McConnell Blasts AOC’s Claim He Is ‘Complicit In Advancing Racism’

Good for him.

Has anyone else noticed how hostile Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become as of late? It seems she’s moved beyond just spewing pure idiocy and has decided to beef it up with a little bitterness. One of her most recent comments was against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who she claims is complicit in advancing racism. Because when all else fails, just toss out the “R-word.” Well, McConnell decided to strike back at such a claim and totally shutdown AOC. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I think it’s time to lore the rhetoric related to that subject all across America — everyone knows that’s nonsense,” McConnell replied to Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo when addressed with the accusation. “I was there when Martin Luther King gave that ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. I was there as an observer when President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act,” McConnell continued. “Look, I’ve got nothing to apologize [for] on this front. We ought to tone rhetoric down across the country. Throwing around words like racism, routinely applying it to almost everything — let’s talk about the issues.” McConnell’s response came two days after Ocasio-Cortez criticized him for not speaking out against President Donald Trump’s earlier remark that members of the so-called “Squad” should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” The Squad, consisting of Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, addressed the heated exchange Monday, and further attacked Trump on a variety of fronts, claiming that he was promulgating a white nationalist agenda and “allowing millions of Americans to die from lack of health insurance.” “[The Squad] wants to take America into a socialist country — I think it’s important to remember that you don’t need…

Berkeley Changing Name For City’s ‘Manholes’ To ‘Maintenance Holes.’ The Reason Why Is Ridiculous

This is just plain stupid.

The city of Berkely, California has decided to change the name of the city’s “manholes” to “maintenance holes” as part of an effort to remove gendered language from the city’s legal code so they can be more “inclusive.” Folks, the insanity that left-wing progressivism ultimately leads to and why we must fight hard to stop it. via Daily Wire: NBC News reported that on Tuesday, the city council adopted a first reading of a new ordinance which removes “gender preference language” from Berkeley’s municipal code. NBC also reported that city council member Rigel Robinson, the youngest member of the council, orchestrated the new ordinance. “It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive,” Robinson told the outlet’s bay-area affiliate. “A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley.” The full list of changed words is reminiscent of the decades-old move to change words that typically end in “-man” to ending with “-person,” such as “salesperson” instead of “salesman.” But the Berkeley list goes further, changing words in a way that would make a Gender Studies professor proud. Instead of “manhole,” city code must now say “maintenance hole.” Instead of “brother” or “sister,” city code must now say “sibling.” Instead of “manpower,” city code must now say either “human effort” or “workforce.” The term “manmade” is also getting scrubbed. It is to be replaced with “human-made” or “artificial,” or “manufactured.” Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you about the inclusion of “MANufactured,” but apparently it’s allowed. The word “master” is now replaced “captain,” “skipper,” or “pilot.” Yes, this is totally for real. This isn’t just another prank article or satire. These folks are legitimately this crazy. Political correctness is destroying America, ravaging freedom of speech, one of the most important, foundational truths…
