Annoying Progressives

Here’s something I read today that struck a note and which seems altogether necessary to share with you all. Hopefully the author, Kurt Schlicter, will not mind. Schlicter advises us to “Annoy Liberals By Refusing To Care About Their Stupid Fake Outrages.” I couldn’t agree more.

These days liberals, whom I prefer to label progressives, seem to believe they get to dictate the “conversation,” meaning the national conversation, with regards to, literally, everything.

They believe they get to decide what we are all supposed to care about. Even though, face it, most of us don’t give a rat’s patoot about their causes. We have better things to do–like survive. Work. Raise our families. Put food on the table. Worry about important things.

Progressives probably got the idea that they are the anointed ones because, for the most part, they control the mainstream media and now even social media.

But  Schlicter is right. More than right. Who the hell cares what progressives think we all should care about? Back in grade school, we would have said, “Who died and left you boss?”

Let’s annoy progressives even more than they’re already annoyed by us (We the Deplorables).

Speak up. Speak out. Talk back. Isn’t that what the former president advised his progressive minions to do? Get in their opponents’ faces?

Let’s take a page from Obama. Thanksgiving is on the horizon, after all. Make the most of it if you have some annoying progressive relatives that need to be annoyed.

We’re supposed to care about illegal immigrants being separated from their children? Why? Whatever happened to “You made your bed, now lie in it?”

We’re supposed to care about that “journalist” who was (or wasn’t) murdered in Turkey by Saudi Arabians (or someone)? Why? Why don’t progressives wring their hands in anguish about the tens of thousands of Americans who are murdered every year on the streets of our own cities? (Why didn’t they care about our own people who were murdered in an embassy in Benghazi? How times change.)

We’re supposed to care about lesbians who can’t find a way to force a Christian baker to make a wedding cake for them? They’re “offended.” The Christian’s no doubt quite offended, too. In my experience, there are plenty of gay cake decorators out there. Find one. Cope. It’s what most normal people do.

We’re supposed to care about the horde of “migrants” who fully intend to break into our country illegally to take the jobs that President Trump, our president, has created by his policies for our people, to make America great again? Why should we care more about poverty, crime, joblessness and hopelessness among Central Americans than we do about the same situations faced by citizens of our own country?

Schlicter sums up his post this way, and I agree wholeheartedly. We all should tell progressives this, when they cluck their tongues at us and virtue signal:

I don’t care. And if you think that makes me a bad person, good. Then you won’t try to hang around me.

See, I reserve the right to decide what I care about. My caring, my choice. And I think I’ll care about things that matter to me, not things that liberal snobs care about.

I care about the interests of the United States of America more than the interests of foreign countries.

I care about Americans not being murdered here more than foreigners being murdered somewhere else.

I don’t care about the media’s peeves and whining. It brought all its misfortune upon itself with its bias, incompetence, and general scuzziness.

I don’t care about global warming. I’ll drive a gas guzzler if I feel like it.

I don’t care about someone’s preferred pronouns. He or she – pick one.

I don’t care about illegal aliens’ sob stories. Go home.

I don’t care about people who feel unsafe, unhappy, or unloved because of what I think, do, and say. Too bad. I will think, do and say what I please.

I don’t care, because I don’t feel like caring about your pet outrages, and you can’t make me.

Here’s the thing. We all need to take back our rights. To stand on our rights. It’s not only progressives who have the freedoms of speech, choice, and association. We need to remind all of them that all of us have those same rights, that we intend to exercise them, and that we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore when they try to strip us of our freedoms under the guise of social justice warrior virtue signaling.

Let’s all become “militant normals.” At the very least, it will help us to keep our sanity in this crazy world.

Some food for thought on a day when I’m too overwhelmed by my own outrages to think straight enough to come up with a fabulous post of my own. 🙂

    • Have you even YET seen one reporter ask and answer the question: WHY NO POSTMARKS? They don’t ask because it blows the whole thing out of the water. I WONDER: Is it a crime, a serious one, to fake postmarks? Is that why there’s no postmark, because these really didn’t go through the mail but they didn’t dare to forge a postmark? Just like how Barry’s “real” BC doesn’t have the official certifications on it that are required? In addition, why he never submitted that forged document to any court of law? Read this one and see if you can explain HOW IT IS that SDNY gets the case and will have the “trial?”

      Despite allegedly committing practically the entire mail-bombing campaign from South Florida, Sayoc will be whisked away to New York after appearing in federal court in Miami for a removal hearing on Monday. He will be prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York, based on evidence that at least five of the 14 packages were sent to that area, including CNN’s offices in Manhattan.

      Many criminal and legal experts in South Florida called the New York U.S. Attorney Office’s takeover of the case a classic “power grab” of a national case that really belongs in South Florida. One former federal prosecutor said Miami’s new U.S. attorney, Ariana Fajardo Orshan, got a “dose of the SDNY.”

      During a Friday news conference at the Justice Department in Washington, D.C., Fajardo was conspicuously absent from the stage of senior officials, which included Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray and the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman. …”

      Sounds like Deep State, which now includes for sure Sessions, wants to control the “discovery” and the outcome. Mark my words: There will be no defense, no public airing of the evidence, no questions asked or answered. He will get a plea, get off and/or get some kind of sentence that will NEVER be publicly seen to be served. He will disappear into the ether (courtesy of someone, perhaps even We the People) and he will not pay for his “crimes” in the same way that he NEVER paid for any of his previous crimes, which explains WHY he’s such a compliant patsy for the Deep State.

      • https://www.yahoo.com/news/mail-bomb-suspect-personality-changed-radically-225705110.html

        That one will truly make you sick. These people are pushing it, just as they pushed too far with Blasey Ford. Now we’re supposed to believe that he used to hang with gays and lesbians and blacks and other people of color and was just your typical progressive UNTIL TRUMP GOT HOLD OF HIS MIND AND CHANGED HIS PERSONALITY COMPLETELY. You see, it’s ALL Trump’s fault and these former friends of PsyOp will attest to it! NOT THAT HE WAS PROGRESSIVE ALL ALONG AND STILL IS, WHICH EXPLAINS WHY HIS ATTACK WAS A HOAX INTENDED TO HARM TRUMP. It makes no sense otherwise. There’s no way a SUPPORTER of the president would believe that doing something like this weeks before the election will HELP the POTUS. ONLY A COMMITTED PROGRESSIVE WHO IS BEING USED OR WHO THINKS THIS WILL HARM TRUMP WOULD DO THIS, just as they falsely believed that Blasey Ford’s accusation would harm Kavanaugh and Trump.

        BTW, I read somewhere yesterday that PsyOp belongs to the same church that SAD did! Yep. Unitarian Universalist. The church of radicals. The church of progressives. Wasn’t it called the Little Red Church, for obvious reasons? So you can’t say his anti-lesbian rant had anything to do with being a typical Christian or Catholic, which one would expect from someone who claims to be either Filipino, or Italian, or Hispanic. All are usually CATHOLICS. But you can’t use the tenets of that church to explain his conservatism because, as our theory would predict, he belonged to the same church that Obama’s mother did. And that also does not compute with him being a Trump fan, unless you accept the probable reality that he only PRETENDED TO BE A TRUMP FAN JUST AS HE SENT ONLY PRETEND BOMBS.

        • From the comment section there: “A retired postal worker stated this fact the Democrats didn’t think about when they “sent” the bombs:
          The USPS does NOT deliver to the homes of anyone under Secret Service protection, like former presidents Clinton and Obama. All mail directed to their residence is delivered to the Secret Service field office. Therefore, the reports that bombs were delivered to the homes of two former presidents is an absolute LIE!
          That is all. Carry on. …”

          And that is probably 100% true so it’s not true that the post office delivered these packages to Clinton and Obama, and yet we’re told that the one did go to Clinton’s house and she wasn’t home but Bill was. ANYTHING actually finally delivered would have a postmark, obviously. In addition, it only stands to reason that BEFORE they go from FL to NY, there’s a postmark from FLORIDA. Otherwise, HOW could they possibly trace anything? It’s all B.S.

    • Funny how they report on his social media activity but make sure to NOT report what he was saying and posting pre-2016, when he loved Code Pink and hated President Bush and VP Cheney.

      • Count the outright LIES in this one: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation-world/national/article220730960.html

        One lie is that he got “radicalized” as a Trump fan in Oct. 2016, at a Trump rally. B.S. because he had Trump clothing that was stolen in 2015 and he registered Republican in March 2016, so months before Oct. It’s bad enough they use Magabomber but now they CLAIM that his van is the MAGAmobile. Total CRAP. They also claim his social media posts were apolitical prior to Oct. 2016. ANOTHER LIE. He posted photos of Bush with blood on his hands. He posted photos of Cheney with a swastika on his forehead. He praised Code Pink. That’s POLITICAL and that was all when he was a registered DEMOCRAT. That article is so lovely. They actually NOW compare what PsyOp did to a “jihad” and blame Trump for it, as if he was the evil Imam who converted PsyOp. This is all so sick. Trump supporters are PsyOp’s “tribe,” they say. Hateful, evil a**holes. It gets better: Trump was PsyOp’s “surrogate father.”

        Get this:
        “Sayoc’s mother was in a hospital recovering from surgery Friday when she saw coverage of Sayoc’s arrest on television. She has not seen or spoken to him in years, said Enid Weisman, mayor of Aventura and a friend of Giardiello, an ardent Democrat who has campaigned for local candidates. Giardiello is a retired beauty salon owner whose husband served prison time on mob-connected RICO charges.

        “This is devastating for her,” Weisman said. “This is a good family that cares about the community. She is warm, friendly, impeccably groomed and lovely, the first person to offer help to anybody.” …”

        So what is it? A “good family” or a family that has deserted, cut off, abandoned the son, hasn’t seen him for years, and a mother whose husband is a convicted mobster? You can’t make this stuff up. So he’s not only connected to the CIA but he’s also connected to the FL MOB?

    • What are the odds THIS dude will be ID’d as his assistant/handler? https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/family-lawyer-says-cesar-sayoc-does-not-have-the-intellectual-capacity-to-be-package-bomber

      Nope. They’ll frame some other MkUltra patsy. The narrative is developing.

      Speaking of narratives, have you noticed the sudden “gun control” focus lately in the mainstream media, beginning BEFORE this most recent shooting? I did and I saw that they were going to move on from the MeToo meme, the “migrant children” separated from their mothers narrative, and now even from the blame Trump for the fake bombs meme to GUN CONTROL.

      Not only that, they also plan to use PsyOp (hoax bomber) as well as the Anti-Semite shooter (who hates Trump, btw) to CENSOR the Internet. They’ve already begun by having the web host of the alternative social media site Gab drop the website, on the pretext that it hosted the shooter’s rants. In addition, Paypal is dropping Gab. HOWEVER, the same guy, iirc, also was on the mainstream social media (Twitter/Facebook, etc.) but they’re not being punished by Paypal.

      It’s OBVIOUS that the entire ploy is to destroy all methods that conservatives have to COMMUNICATE with each other BEFORE THE ELECTION. Pro-life sites are similarly being punished/censored. It’s discrimination because the same theory of why they must be punished and/or censored does NOT apply to progressive sites.

      WHEN WILL THE DOJ, not to mention the FTC and the FEC and the FCC, get onto these blatant violations of the law?

  7. http://definition.org/young-donald-trump/3/

    Check out the photos of a young Trump. Barron sure resembles his father. It’s kind of funny–poor Donald actually did get the treatment that many of us Baby Boomers were threatened with if we didn’t behave. Donald actually did get sent to military school as punishment for taking unauthorized rambles to NYC.

    but we’re seeing something that is not at all equivalent,” he added. ???

    Tapper also asked Steyer about a tweet dashed off by the House’s No. 2 Republican, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.)

    The tweet whacked Democratic donors George Soros and Michael Bloomberg, who are both Jewish, along with Steyer, whose late father
    was Jewish too.

    “That seems to me like a straight-up anti-Semitic move. I think that that is
    a classic attempt to Separate???? ha’ Americans,” Steyer said.

    Steyer, who Forbes says is worth $1.6 Billion, says he’ll keep at it with the Trump impeachment ads, & says support for removing the president is growing.

    “I’m representing Most ???? Americans,” he argued. ???

    • So now, just as it was “racist” to simply criticize Obama, it’s “anti-Semitic” to criticize anyone who happens to be Jewish (practicing or not), and even a guy who, regardless of whether he was 13 or 16 or whatever at the time, helped the Nazis to confiscate the possessions of Jews in Nazi Germany under the theory that somebody was going to do it, anyway?

      • Remember: They wanted to hold Kavanaugh responsible for what he did as a “child”, as a teen-ager.

        In addition, remember that they hunt down very elderly men who simply trained dogs used at the concentration camps.

  11. They echo Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters’s call for
    Violence ……. against Their Opponents. <<<<<

    And while she didn’t call for violence in the streets as did Waters, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, & Hillary’s own running mate Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s rhetoric can only be called inflammatory: “Hillary Clinton said on CNN, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” Former president Obama’s intemperate remark bears repeating in this context of fiery political speech.

    Mobster wisdom tells us never to bring a knife to a gun fight.
    But what does political wisdom say about bringing a gun to a knife fight?

    That’s Exactly what Barack Obama said he would DO to counter Republican attacks
    … “If They bring a knife to the fight, …. bring a GUN,” Obama SAID!!! at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly LIKE …. a g o o d …. brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

    You state his van is new. It is not. It is in very good shape from a cosmetic point of view, but this is a Dodge Van & the last one was made for the 2003 Model Year, so it is at least 15 years old.
    I am a retiree of Chrysler Group LLC, formerly DaimlerChrysler and before that, Chrysler Corporation. I was involved in the planning of this vehicle from the safety side. This van was replaced by the Daimler Sprinter Van (which was rebadged Dodge) around 2005 or 2006. I worked for the company for 23 1/2 years.
