WATCH: This Black, Gay Veteran Who Left the Democrat Party is Libs Worst Nightmare

Published

on

Identity politics have been a cornerstone of the Democratic Party platform for at least a decade, and it appears it may have destroyed them.

As thousands join the #WalkAway movement, leaving behind the party of victimhood, intersectional politics, and downright lies, Democrats are struggling with an identity crisis the proportions of which they’ve never seen.

They have Donald Trump on the right of them and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the left, and have no idea what to do with the space in between.

So when those they consider to have great virtue in the intersectional caste system of victimhood and marginalization turn against their party in favor of the party that truly values rights and liberty, they simply don’t know what to do.

Enter Rob Smith: the black, gay, Army veteran who perfectly exemplifies the #WalkAway movement.

He appeared on Fox News’ Watters World over the weekend, Biz Pac Review reports:

A black, gay, Army veteran, Smith became so sick of false narratives from liberals, and the perpetuation of a victimhood mentality that he decided to switch parties and become a Republican.

“I think for me, I got so sick of the lies. What they were telling black people,” Smith said Saturday during an appearance on Fox News’ “Watters’ World.”

“When you are a black person you get messages from Democrats saying you are a victim and you need us to succeed and you need us to achieve, you need this ever-expanding welfare state to make something of yourself,” he told host Jesse Watters. “I got tired of it and sick of that message that it needed them, and I got sick of that message of victimhood that they continue to push to black Americans for the last three decades of my life.”

Smith, who grew up a Democrat, said the party is all about keeping people in line.

“I think Democrats use identity politics to keep people in line,” Smith explained. “To keep black people in line. To keep Latinos in line. To keep gay people in line. I’m black and gay, and I have seen them use the same tactics for black people as they do for gay people.”

Like many ex-Democrats, Smith found that the Democrats’ claim to love tolerance stops as soon as affiliation with the Republican party begins:

“I didn’t lose friends when I came out as gay. I’ve lost friends since coming out as Republican,” Smith said. “People do not understand it and these are the… left, that’s supposed to be so tolerant and inclusive. These are the people who were the first to shun me when I came out as conservative.”

And make no mistake, the criticism has been intense.

“I have been called everything but child of god,” Smith told Watters. “They call you a sellout and an ‘Uncle Tom.’ But why can’t I have different ideas? Why can’t I be free thinking? Why can’t I have a victor mentality?”

The Democrats have overplayed their hand when it comes to intersectional politics, and they’re left faced with a very difficult decision: stick to the platform that pleases only the radicals on the fringes, or suck it up and admit that Trump won the presidency because he’s more in touch with the American people who value liberty, natural rights, and pluralism.

The latter, considering how they’ve behaved with Trump in office, seems very difficult to imagine.

Texas Vape Shops File Restraining Order Over Sudden Delta-8 Switcheroo

The rollout of the new law was severely flawed.

Published

on

Around the world, attitudes toward the marijuana plant are changing…and rapidly.

Once considered the drug of choice for lazy stoners, wannabe hippies, and professional pizza delivery drivers, recent research into the cannabis plant have shown there to be a myriad of potent compounds within.  And, with the legalization of hemp, (which shares some of these magical effects), even the squares are using CBD creams and edibles to treat everything from muscle soreness to depression and anxiety.

Now, as chemists and agriculturists have concocted a way to make hemp into a very marijuana-like substance, authorities in places where marijuana is still illegal are having trouble with the letter of law and how to apply it to not-quite-synthetic weed.

Texas CBD and vape shops are searching for answers, and some have filed temporary restraining orders against the state after they say health officials abruptly announced last week that they had added delta-8 THC products to their list of Schedule I controlled substances.

Delta-8 is a less-potent alternative to the delta-9 product known as marijuana, though it produces similar effects.

And the rollout of this reading of the law was flawed as well.

Official state documents show that for months, the Department of State Health Services has considered the product illegal.

But Ashley Flood, who owns a CBD American Shaman franchise location in Allen, and other shop owners and consumers say they were never informed of the decision that Commissioner John Hellerstedt announced more than a year ago or the move to update the state’s website.

“We didn’t find out from the state, we didn’t find out from law enforcement, we didn’t find out via letter, email — nothing. We found out from one of our suppliers,” she said after finding out about the change to the DSHS website.

And despite Flood’s understandable frustration, she has also suggested that her conversations with customer who are in law enforcement belied that the enforcement of this delta-8 rule is not a high priority for Texas authorities.

Int’l Observers Declare Afghanistan’s Collapse is Inevitable

The Biden legacy grows more tarnished by the minute.

Published

on

When it’s all said and done, there is little doubt that the debacle in Afghanistan will be a key point in the history of Joe Biden’s presidency.

His blunder, which was a decision to expedite the withdrawal of US forces from the nation after 20 years, allowed the Taliban terror organization to conquer Afghanistan in just 11 days, and forced our nation to abandon a great many American citizens and allies who were trying to escape.

Now, despite the administration’s insistence that this was a “kinder, gentler” Taliban than ruled back in the 1990’s, there are reports of widespread violence against women and minorities, and talk of a potential “collapse” of Afghanistan itself.

Afghanistan will shortly collapse into chaos unless the international community acts rapidly, Swedish and Pakistani ministers warned on Saturday.

Afghanistan plunged into crisis after the hardline Islamist Taliban movement drove out the Western-backed government in August triggering the abrupt end of billions of dollars in assistance to its aid-dependent economy.

“The country is on the brink of collapse and that collapse is coming faster than we thought,” Swedish development minister Per Olsson Fridh told Reuters in Dubai.

And Fridh wasn’t the only one, either.

Pakistani Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry later told Reuters that direct engagement with the Taliban was the only way to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe, and called for billions of dollars of Afghan assets frozen overseas to be released.
“Are we going to push Afghanistan into chaos or are we going to try and stabilize the country?” he said in Dubai.
It was discovered through congressional testimony that President Biden had been warned of the potential for disaster in Afghanistan, but chose to continue with his expedited withdrawal anyway.
