The State of Georgia is locked in one of its wildest gubernatorial races in modern history, as democrat Stacey Abrams looks to make history against Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

The race for the governorship has been a turbulent one for both candidates.  Abrams, if elected, would be the first ever female African American governor in our nation’s history, and has had the likes of Oprah and Will Ferrell spending time in the deep south to assist with her campaigning.

Kemp, on the other hand, found controversy by releasing a number of campaign advertisements that seem to play down to the far, far right of the Georgia GOP base, even going so far as to suggest that he would round up illegal immigrants in his personal vehicle.

To say that it’s been a strange contest would be understating it immensely.

Now, Abrams has let fly her latest attack on the Second Amendment – something that could come back to haunt her in Georgia.

She was a guest on The View, and host Meghan McCain noted, “You have been endorsed by Everytown, which is an anti-gun organization–Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group as well. You say you’re proud of your F rating from the NRA. Michael Bloomberg and others like him support taking the AR-15–which is the most popular rifle in America–away from people. Do you, like Everytown, support banning the AR-15?”

Abrams responded by quickly claiming she is not “anti-gun,” then laying out many of the gun controls she wants to put in place: “I believe in a background check. I believe in a three-day waiting period. I believe that those who commit domestic violence and stalking should not have access to weapons.”

She then described AR-15s as “weapons of mass destruction” and made clear her position that they should be banned from civilian ownership…

Georgia has long been considered an easy win for the republicans in general elections, but the possibility of the Peach State as a battleground locale has emerged in recent years due to the blossoming population of Atlanta, whose population tends to skew heavy toward the democrats.

In rural areas, Abrams’ AR-15 schtick certainly will not fly, but is there enough support within the capital city’s limits to push her over the top?  And, if so, will Georgia succumb to the same fate as New York and California, whose political maneuvers are wholly telegraphed from their most populous and liberal locales?

We will find out on Tuesday.

MSNBC Producer Quits, Pens Letter Calling Network A ‘Cancer’ That Stokes ‘Racial Division’

‘Bout time someone said it!

If it walks and quack like a duck, it’s probably a duck. Everybody knows that MSNBC does its audience a disservice by reporting opinion over fact. But they’re not about to let up anytime soon. Thankfully, one woman has seen the light. And she’s outta there! From Daily Wire: A former MSNBC producer wrote an open letter on Monday explaining why she left the far-left network a little over a week ago, saying that they are a “cancer” that is “stoking national division” by amplifying “fringe voices” and forcing “journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.” The letter was written by Ariana Pekary, who Fox News noted described herself as an “integral member” of MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.” CONTINUED: “July 24th was my last day at MSNBC. I don’t know what I’m going to do next exactly but I simply couldn’t stay there anymore,” Pekary wrote. “My colleagues are very smart people with good intentions. The problem is the job itself. It forces skilled journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.” Pekary said that at MSNBC it was “practically baked in to the editorial process” that decisions on what and who give coverage to were based on what would generate the most ratings for the network. She said that behind closed doors “industry leaders will admit the damage that’s being done.” Nobody outside of Chinese leaders can be blamed for coronavirus. The communist nation was responsible for the outbreak and initially failed to alert the rest of the world before it got as bad as is. Now, every world leader is doing their best to combat further spreading of the disease. President Trump and his team have stepped up to the plate, advising Americans on what needs to be done. Precautions have been…

Ivy League School to Hold Month Long Workshop for White Students, ‘Deconstructing Whiteness’

Are you serious??

Psst, white conservatives who attend Columbia – just saw you don’t identify as white. That should be enough to exempt you from this program, right? They wouldn’t dare call you out for identifying as another race, would they? Here’s the deal, via Campus Reform: For weeks, Columbia University Health has been hosting Zoom workshops as part of a series titled “From Ally to Accomplice at Columbia: Working Group for Examining and Deconstructing Whiteness to Mitigate Racial Trauma.” The weekly online “interactive curriculum,” which began July 7 and concludes Monday, is designed for “white-identified students” to “engage in exploration of their white identities and build community and accountability around deconstructing whiteness and white privilege to facilitate the development of an antiracist lens.” https://twitter.com/jessesingal/status/1280205783213408257?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw People who attend, attended, or work for Harvard University are supposed to be smart. Sure, there are some good ones out there – Ben Shapiro and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), for example. But by and large, the Ivy League school is nothing more than a breeding ground for liberal nonsense. Here’s an example, from Washington Times via Right Scoop: Harvard researchers publicly walked back Monday a key finding in a highly touted but hotly contested paper linking air pollution exposure to deaths from the novel coronavirus, slashing the estimated mortality rate in half. The preliminary study by researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health made a splash when the results were announced April 7 in the New York Times, prompting alarm on the left as Democrats sought to connect COVID-19 deaths to the Trump administration’s regulatory pushback.
