Now more than maybe ever before, racism of the kind Phil Anselmo has always casually exhibited can be seen for the gruesome and unacceptable anachronism it is. It was never right, but now people know not to put up with it and they’re willing to make that clear to those who still cling to it. Anselmo isn’t the victim of PC culture here. He didn’t make some crass joke or toss a “microagression” at a hypersensitive college kid. He shouted “white power” and gave a Nazi salute.
This isn’t an opinion. It’s math. The thing about reality is that it’s always there and you’re subject to the constraints of it whether you choose to believe in it or not. Barring a political deus ex machina of statistically inexpressible proportions, Bernie Sanders just isn’t going to be president. But given that this election is bigger than any one person — or any one grudge should that person not win — will Sanders’s rabid fanbase vote for someone they’ve spent months utterly demonizing?
If You’re Liberal and You Think Hillary Clinton Is Corrupt and Untrustworthy, You’re Rewarding 25 Years of GOP Smears
Obviously, Clinton carries with her more than 25 years in the white-hot public spotlight that Sanders doesn’t — despite his career in the Senate — and over that length of time people have been able to form opinions of her and they’re ones not likely to change at this point. What you know about Hillary is what you know about Hillary. There aren’t a lot of surprises. Maybe you figure this is bad for her, but in truth it can be argued that this is a positive rather than a negative because there’s nothing the Republicans can throw at her that we haven’t already been fed to death. And when you take a step back and look at Clinton objectively — which is admittedly difficult for many, even, or maybe particularly, on the left — that’s exactly the point. Hillary Clinton’s reputation is largely the result of a quarter century of visceral GOP hatred.
LaVoy Finicum promised to seal his own fate and that’s exactly what he did. He’s not a martyr and he’s not a hero. His death is tragic in the sense that it was completely unnecessary and could have been easily avoided by Finicum himself. But that wasn’t what he wanted. What he wanted was to be remembered as the guy behind “Finicum’s Charge.” What he wanted was to die rather than be taken into custody — and that’s what he got.
In a rare moment of sanity for Texas, a grand jury there has refused to indict anyone associated with Planned Parenthood in the wake of a series of undercover videos that purported to show agents of the organization dealing in the organs of harvested fetuses. In a pretty surprising move, though, who that grand jury… Read More
Patton Oswalt didn’t allow Palin’s fusillade of oratory gobbledygook to turn his brain to mush and leave him standing there in a puddle of his own urine, like it did me. Last night, he took to Twitter to “quote” Sarah Palin’s endorsement address — while tweeting directly to her — and the result was pure magic.
The offended can tie themselves in knots to try to prove Cruz wrong about New York City. They can slam Cruz for his slight. But honestly they should be reveling in his criticism, knowing full well that if Ted Cruz says there’s something wrong with you, you must be doing something — in this case, everything — right.
Paramount is lamenting the underperformance of 13 Hours and blaming liberal audiences for not giving it a chance. Maybe it shouldn’t have made and marketed a movie that was 100% conservative fan service then.
Paramount Pictures knows what it’s got on its hands — because it planned it that way — and so it’s making sure to hit all the notes in its promotion of 13 Hours that will instantly harden and dampen the bad-touch-areas of not only Fox News’s acolytes but Fox News itself.
