Trump TRASHES Dems Over Anti-Israel, Anti-Jewish Stance

The left’s inability to recognize to repudiate hateful rhetoric will undoubtedly be their downfall in 2020, and the President knows it.

While many believe that the future of the democratic party lies with the new wave of liberals flooding Congress, others aren’t sure that there is any future at all left for these progressive politicos.

Much of this sentiment comes to us via Ilhan Omar, a freshman Congresswoman who has repeatedly lambasted both Israel and the Jewish people using vile and hateful rhetoric.  Even in the face of her blatant bigotry, the democratic party has been unable to pass compelling resolutions condemning her antisemitism.

This should have been simple, but, thanks to the pervasive realities of liberal logic, Nancy Pelosi herself was so flabbergasted with the young democrats that she simply walked away from the issue altogether after complaining that these precocious progressives wouldn’t listen to her.

Now, the President himself is lashing out, blasting the democratic party for their unwillingness to condemn bigotry and hatred.

President Donald Trump criticized Democrats for failing to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for antisemitic comments on Friday, calling them the “anti-Israel party.”

“They’ve become an anti-Israel party, they have become an anti-Jewish party, and that’s too bad,” Trump said about the Democrat party.

The president commented on the controversy as he left the White House to tour tornado damage in Alabama and Georgia.

POTUS continued…

Trump called the “anti-hate” resolution passed by the House “a disgrace” after critics described it as an attempt to mask Omar’s antisemitic comments.

“I thought that vote was a disgrace, and so does everybody else, if you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace,” he said.

How the democrats will deal with this controversy will likely become a crux of the 2020 election cycle, and, if this week is any indication of how that will go, President Trump can go ahead and order the champagne and confetti.

Actress Roseanne Barr Considering A Lawsuit Against ABC For Firing Her Over Controversial Tweet

Published

on

Actress Roseanne Barr, who has been largely silent over the last couple of years since being fired from ABC in 2018 over a controversial tweet she posted comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to characters from the film Planet of the Apes.

Yeah. That was a very, very poor choice of words. There’s little argument about that. However, Barr did explain that it wasn’t meant as a racial slur at all and she should have been granted the benefit of the doubt.

Well, Barr is now considering a lawsuit against ABC for giving her the boot. The actress appeared on an episode of “Quarantined With Norm MacDonald” on Sunday on the former Saturday Night Live alum’s YouTube channel where she discussed the matter.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“I have the time now to research and come up with the perfect lawsuit,” she said, adding, “The lawsuit I’m going to wage against Hollywood.”

She told MacDonald in the laid-back interview that she plans to “f— over everybody in the f—ing world over there.”

Barr was fired from the network after tweeting, “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” in response to another user’s claim that suggested Jarrett helped former President Barack Obama hide secrets.

Barr’s apology for the tweet fell on deaf ears as the network fired her and then took the show she helped create and turned it into something else entirely, killing off her main character despite the fact the show was a huge hit with conservative audiences.

Roseanne Barr has always been a controversial figure in popular culture so it’s not surprising to see her make out there statements. But in today’s PC climate, you’re not allowed to truly speak your mind because everyone is trying to avoid offending each other.

Thus, the growth of our culture has stagnated.

On a side note, Barr shouldn’t have been fired so quickly. The network could have salvaged the relationship with her and showcased for the world how forgiveness works, but instead, they gave in to the mob.

It’ll be interesting to see if Barr follows through on her threat to file a lawsuit and to see what might happen as a result.

Cancel Culture Kills The Beer Money Guy

The Des Moines Register and Anheuser Busch took hypocrisy to new heights.

Published

on

On Saturday September 14th the world met an average guy named Carson King.

Carson was attending the in-state rivalry college football game between the University of Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State Cyclones known as the Cy-Hawk game. The game was nationally televised on ESPN, and Mr. King made a now famous paper sign asking for “Beer Money”. He then made his way to the background of the cameras and as they say the rest is history…sort of.

His simple sign read, Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished – Venmo – Carson-King-25 and the money began pouring in. After it reached several hundred dollars Carson decided to give it all to charity rather fund a huge drunken party with it. Good for you Carson King. He decided to donate the money to Stead Children’s Hospital in Iowa City. With that bit of information, the internet went into a viral frenzy.

The money poured in. Both Venmo and Anheuser Busch, who makes Busch Light, said they would match whatever was pledged to the Carson King Venmo account. The numbers skyrocketed. Carson King was an instant celebrity in Iowa and nationwide. He was doing interviews all over the place! They flew him to New York and all the major media outlets ran positive stories on Carson’s generosity. Iowa NICE was cool!

Iowa Nice is super cool actually, but at the Cy-Hawk game it’s kinda put on pause! I live in Iowa and I am a lifelong Hawkeye. I also have a son who is going to Iowa State so I know first hand the rivalry between these two schools. It can get ugly at this in state game, just ask the Hawkeye Marching Band.

Watching our state come together around Carson King and Busch Light beer, who some call Busch Latte, because Iowan’s drink so much of it has been nothing short of amazing. Carson King is a Cyclone. He donated his money to the Children’s Hospital in Iowa City, home of the Hawkeyes. That fact was not lost on Hawkeye or Cyclone fans who are all Iowan’s at the end of the day.

With each news story the money kept growing and now with matching funds it’s over a million dollars that will go to the kids at our fantastic hospital. This story is conceivably one of the most awesome examples of how good humans can be. I personally loved it! I was proud of Iowa for doing it. 

Busch Light was even going to release a special edition can with Carson Kings face on it calling him an Iowa Legend. I was planning on buying a bunch of the awesome cans and I don’t even drink Busch Light! I wanted to collect it and put it on my shelf in my bar. Many of my friends planned to do the same.

Well, thanks to a reporter at the ‘so-called’ newspaper, The Des Moines Register, that all changed this morning when I read that Anheuser Busch was severing all ties to Carson King due to the discovery of racist tweets from when he was sixteen years old.

Here’s what we know: Reporter Aaron Calvin of the Des Moines Register went back through eight years or tweets and found two racist tweets from sixteen-year-old Carson King. Aaron Calvin also overlooked a tweet from three years ago in which Carson King said, “Until we as a people learn that racism and hate are learned behaviors, we won’t get rid of it. Tolerance towards others is the first step.”

Aaron Calvin didn’t care about that. He only cared about the scoop he thought he was sitting on. His chance to literally destroy a great thing for Iowa and the nation.

It didn’t take long and we had Carson King apologizing for his sixteen-year-old self and Busch Light pulling the plug on their association with him. Here’s King’s statement:

Some have speculated that Busch may have been looking for a way out of the matching commitment because it was growing so large. I don’t know about that, but if that’s true they are crazy! They could have released the Carson King can as a limited edition 1 million cans only and sold them all at $5/can in one day!

This story is so infuriating I hardly know what to say! As a culture this is where we are.

I guess I’m glad we didn’t have Twitter when I was sixteen! The stupid crazy things I said and thought back then would be embarrassing and horrifying to who I am now! I guess poor Carson King never thought he should go through his old social media accounts and scrub them for public consumption. Sure, he shouldn’t have said those racist things. Duh! None of us should have said some of the stupid things we’ve said, especially when young. 

Are those things an indictment upon us for our entire lives? I guess so!

The reporter and the Des Moines Register should be ashamed of themselves for what they did to this guy, but even more what they did to the story. You see the story here wasn’t really about Carson King. The story was about people who are very different coming together to raise money for sick kids! The Des Moines Register decided to make it about mistakes in Carson Kings past.

The hypocrisy also goes to an all-time new level as Twitter is merciless and discovered that Aaron Calvin has a bunch of his own racist tweets! The Des Moines Register has no problem employing a reporter who posts racist things on Twitter, but then digging up dirt and calling Carson King a racist to essentially destroy him and an amazing thing he is doing is par for the course for this once great paper. 

Anheuser Busch is just as hypocritical! They cut ties with Carson in a blink without realizing this was eight years ago and he was a stupid kid who has grown up since then. As a company they’ve changed. At one point they ran racist ads for “Black and Tan” Porter that would make anybody cringe nowadays. Do they still do racist advertising? No, of course not. I guess they are allowed to change, but not Carson King.

I don’t normally do boycotts, but I am so furious about this, that I will not be buying Busch Light or any Anheuser Busch product for the foreseeable future. Support your local breweries! They are small business owners in your own backyard. 

The Des Moines Register and Busch Latte can get poured down the drain for all I care after what they’ve done here.
