NYT’s Mara Gay ‘Disturbed’ by Flying of American Flag on Long Island

What will the left think of next?

Published

One of the most detrimental facets of the manufactured dichotomy of American politics is that everything is now being forced into one column or the other.  Every single issue is being divvied up onto either Team R or Team D, and there is no room for sharing.

It’s a disturbing trend that will eventually leave Americans with little to call their own, as the two-party system gobbles up every last bit of our culture to score political points.

The symptoms of this issue are rather apparent this week, as a columnist for the New York Times suggests that flying the American flag is somehow innately “disturbing” due to the fact that conservatives might be the ones doing the displaying.

MSNBC contributor Mara Gay said Tuesday that she was “disturbed” to see “dozens of American flags” flown by Donald Trump supporters during a weekend trip to Long Island, New York.

The left-wing editorial board member for The New York Times was also distressed by what she called expletives on the trucks against President Biden, describing the flag-flying Trump supporters as sending a clear message: “This is my country … not your country. I own this.”

The full comments were even more alarming.

“I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with explicatives [sic] against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing … Essentially the message was clear. This is my country. This is not your country. I own this,” Gay said.

By suggesting that the American flag itself is some sort of symbol of hate, Gay has crossed a line in rhetoric that many thought that we’d never cross, and it may be hard for the liberal left to step back over it.

VP Harris Attacked by CNN Reporter Over Gibberish Answers on Border

But her suggestions for improvement weren’t any better, either.

Published

From the very moment that Kamala Harris was tasked with solving the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, there have been concerns about her both her competence and her enthusiasm for the project. The Vice President has not only remained far, far away from the border in the 2+ months since being assigned the role, but her recent trip to Guatemala and Mexico saw her elicit some nonsensical answers regarding the situation. In fact, Madam Vice President’s responses were so ridiculous that even CNN couldn’t defend her. During an appearance on Don Lemon’s primetime program, a CNN reporter named Maeve Reston was brutal in her assessment of the VP’s work. Reston said, “I think that we’ve seen this time and again from Kamala Harris, Don, throughout the campaign in 2020. When she doesn’t like a question that she gets, she often deflects it in a way that can seem defensive. And the point that Lester Holt was making was obvious to anyone else who was watching this interview, which is that the issues at the border are inextricably linked with the portfolio that she’s been given, which is to slow — to stem the flow of migration from Central America. And so, it was a really perplexing answer that came off as flippant. And I think that’s what people within the White House are reacting to. Because there were…any number of ways that she could have answered this question that came off differently. Then came the idea of playing semantics: “I mean, she has visited the border as attorney general of California. She visited the border when she was a U.S. senator. And so, she’s reacting in a defensive way. Because the right has been trying to make her into the administration’s border czar, and that’s not the portfolio she…

MSM Caught in ‘Big Lie’ as Feds Reveal Reason for Clearing Lafayette Square

The infotainment industry has a lot of explaining to do.

Published

For over a year now, the mainstream media has consistently and continually attempted to vilify Donald Trump for a number of reasons, not the least of which was an incident that occurred in Washington DC one year ago this month, in which the then-President took a photo in Lafayette Square amid heavy protests that were dispersed with tear gas. The infotainment industry has long suggested that the tear gassing of protesters on that day was done simply for the sake of Trump’s photo op, and pundits have been leaning into this assumption heavily when they criticize the 45th President of the United States. As it turns out, all of that fuss was undeniably out of place. An internal government investigation has determined that the decision to forcibly clear racial justice protesters from an area in front of the White House last summer was not influenced by then-President Donald Trump’s plan to stage a Bible-toting photo opportunity at that spot. The report released Wednesday by the Interior Department’s inspector generalconcludes that the protesters were cleared by U.S. Park Police last June 1 so that a contractor could get started installing new fencing. The timing of the incident is proof positive that the media’s portrayal was purposefully inaccurate. Park Police officials had already planned to clear the area and “had begun implementing the operational plan several hours before they knew of a potential Presidential visit to the park,” Inspector General Mark Lee Greenblatt said in a statement accompanying the report. As CNN and others continue to bludgeon the nation over the head with their talk of a “big lie”, perhaps it’s time that they were reminded of the anecdote about throwing stones in glass houses.
