The media here is almost fully in Thrall to the left and our 'talking heads' and assorted TV nonebrities have been assailing the ears and eyes of decent people. Several prominent folk dropped in with things to say, amogst them Pamela Geller. And Chris Kenny. A chap quite local to the Tavern had a few words to start them off and we kept the best 'til last, as they say. Reg Andrew Watson was bought a round after speaking up thus:
The left still is in trauma mode regarding Donald Trump's election, including television journalists in Australia. The problem is of course, they only speak to themselves and to their converted. People like me are just turned off and am not listening. I will make up my own mind.
I was stirred by two who were being interviewed on television and were protesting against Trump with screwed up faces and voicing rhetoric, which had been planted in their brains.
While calling out love, they espoused 'hate'.
They actually were calling what is good bad and what is bad - good.
I was reminded of the verse in Isaiah, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.'(5:29) RSV.Pre-election, well- planned demonstrations have been held in Oz and the UK, where, in Leicester - it is reported by James H - a woman threw a traffic cone that narrowly missed Mr Trump by a mere 5802 miles. It is not as though such demonstrations could or would have any effect at all on the Inauguration, but the Monstrous Regiment and its cohorts do not tip their knitted hats to logic or reason.
Just where the wimmin in America found the airfares for them to gather in Washington from all over the country is anyone's guess although one Mr Soros is said to have very deep pockets. And we must not forget the taxpayer whose pockets have been rifled and his stores had a shovel put through to fund the thousands of 'wimmin's groups' that litter the nation. And gather they did.
Of them and their sistas in other nations doing the same, Chris Kenny had a few words: I pulled pints for all hanging on his words.
Act of mass petulance:
spare us the shallow arbiters of moralityYesterday’s “women’s marches” in the US and around the world were, at their core, anti-democratic. This was just mass petulance.Sure, everyone has a right to protest. But this wasn’t about anything President Donald Trump has done: he was only installed on Friday.These protesters were stomping their feet at the outcome of the election. Everyone hates losing and elections are important but there are always losers.
Tell us just how, Chris. It could not have been his 'pussy-grabbing' comment, shirley? I read it and saw the transcript. He said he and his colleague 'could' grab a pussy because the women groupies.....Smashed windows and burned cars on Friday, chanting crowds and ranting pop stars on the weekend, but Trump is still President.We’ve had silly debates about comparative crowd sizes (parade envy?) and fake news stories about a bust of Martin Luther King being moved from the White House (it wasn’t) and, yes, some of this nonsense has been fuelled by the President himself.
would allow any rich or famous man to.
|These women, all, have complained about men objectifying them. !|
It was a criticism of such women rather than an intent on his part.
But such media sideshows, aimed at mocking Trump, tend to fuel his support outside the Beltway. They amplify his core message — the theme of his inauguration address — that an outsider has moved in to shake up the Washington political and media establishment.There wasn’t one clear policy or action the weekend protesters were rallying against.
At best, yes. But at normal was a liar, an anti-woman, anti-baby, anti-life harpy. More of the same (as Obama? "? I think she would have imposed her own vicious mind on the further deterioration of America.They are united against the Trump presidency — the vibe of the thing.Fair enough — they all have the right — but the time to stir up opposition to Trump was in the lead-up to the election. A mass movement of people marching to polling booths in Democrat states won by the Republican nominee would have made a difference.Not enough of them were enthused about Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, who was, at best, pedestrian, offering only more of the same.
So the political imperative for the protests was belated, on the one hand: the election is done. And it was premature, on the other: Trump hasn’t done anything yet.There was, of course, the feminist element — these were women’s marches. Clinton lost the election to a man who, on any objective level, lacked the political experience or character traits to make him an ideal candidate.
The fact Trump was able to win was an indictment on Clinton herself and her campaign. She chose to run in large part on identity — vote for me because I am a woman — and this didn’t work with enough women, let alone men
Yet she is offered up as the martyr.(Many Trump critics point to the popular vote — winning that has never been the aim of the US presidential contest. So campaigns are tuned to winning individual states rather than a national majority. Who knows what the result would have been with different campaigns aimed at winning the popular vote. It is disingenuous and weak to try and change the terms of the contest after losing it.)
But accurate, nonetheless.In the past Trump has said and done many things that most of us would regard as crass and sexist. Even during the campaign some of his references to Clinton were, to use a word, deplorable.
This monstrous Regiment, being mindless and sent hither and thither, can be easily taken over by 'sleepers' and infiltrators who cannot be said even by Chris Kenny to having America's interests at heart. Or yours.Yet if feminists want to rail against injustices to women, there are far more pressing issues around the globe than oafishness in the Oval Office; especially when you recall that Clinton defended her own husband when he was exposed for exploiting and harassing women from that same presidential office.Whether it is female genital mutilation, forced marriages, rights to education and work, domestic violence and even the right to show faces in public, there is no shortage of outrageous subjugation of women around the world, with elements of it replicated even in Western democracies such as the US.Protest against that.Now we have Hollywood actors who live behind secure walls in multi-million-dollar mansions decrying increased fortification of the US border. And the stars of shallow, violent and amoral movies offer themselves as public arbiters of political morality. Spare us.This is no defence of Trump — he has, after all, been a birther. But the protesters claim moral superiority. They claim higher aspirations.If Trump grates with you — wait for him to do something in office and then criticise it.Better still, if you are a US citizen, mobilise next time to vote for a better candidate in order to defeat him.That’s how democracy works.
According to the Women’s March website, the purpose of their march taking place right after President-elect Trump’s inauguration day is to advocate for “demonized” groups including LGBTQIA, Muslims, etc.
The Women’s March has partnered with several Islamic groups, including Hamas-linked CAIR (CT), the Muslim Women’s Alliance, Arab American Association of New York, and the Women for Afghan Women. While the movement strives for intersectionality between various groups – ethnic, religious, or otherwise, these groups cannot coexist without first assessing that their values align.
What seems especially odd about the feminist-LGBTQIA-Islam conglomerate is that the Islamic movements are directly opposed to the aims of mainstream feminists.
While mainstream feminists advocate for freedom of expression in clothing, CAIR maintains that Muslim women should wear “loose-fitting, non-revealing clothing, known as hijab, or khimar”.
According to CAIR’s guide for educators, Muslim boys and girls may not take same-sex communal after-sport showers, and that Muslim students should not be forced to participate in coed swimming classes.
CAIR also insists that Muslims may not want to shake hands with teachers and administrators of the opposite sex – but as a “sign of personal modesty”.
How does CAIR know what each Muslim is thinking when he or she refuses to shake a person’s hand? It could very well be out of condescension towards women – which is prescribed in the Quran.
And it was at this juncture that Pamela put down her dink and spoke up.
Women’s March Organizer is a vicious Jew-hater with ties to Islamic TerrorNotorious Islamic Jew-hater Linda Sarsour is one of organizers of Saturday’s Women’s March.
Ironic, of course, we have never seen Sarsour stand against the gender apartheid, honor violence, or the oppression and subjugation under Islamic law.
No, what Sarsour agitates and incites against is the Jewish state and its people.
Born in 1980 in Brooklyn, New York, Linda Sarsour is a Palestinian-American community activist who has served as executive director of the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY) since 2005. She is also a board member of the Muslim Democratic Club of New York (MDCNY), and a member of the Justice League NYC.
An outspoken critic of Israel, Sarsour supports the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement, a Hamas-inspired initiative that uses various forms of public protest, economic pressure, and court rulings to advance the Hamas agenda of permanently destroying Israel as a Jewish nation-state.Vis-a-vis the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict, Sarsour favors a one-state solution where an Arab majority and a Jewish minority would live together within the borders of a single country. She made clear her opposition to Israel’s existence as a Jewish state when she tweeted in October 2012 that “nothing is creepier than Zionism.”
To advance this agenda, Sarsour has tweeted images of fraudulent maps claiming to depict the “Palestinian loss of land” that supposedly occurred between 1946 and 2000.
As the head of AAANY, Sarsour has played a central role in pressuring the New York Police Department to terminate its secret surveillance of Muslim mosques and organizations suspected of promoting extremism or terrorism, and to curtail its use of “stop-and-frisk” anti-crime measures.
In 2011 she worked in conjuction with Communities United for Police Reform, a coalition to advance the passage of the Community Safety Act (which expanded the definition of bias-based profiling and created an independent inspector general to review police policy in New York City). Sarsour also succeeded in pressuring City Hall to close New York’s public schools for the observance of the Islamic holidays Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.In May 2012 Sarsour tweeted that the so-called “underwear bomber,” an al-Qaeda operative who on Christmas Day 2009 had tried to blow up a Detroit-bound passenger jet with explosives hidden inside his underwear, was actually a CIA agent participating in America’s “war on Islam.”In 2013 Sarsour campaigned for New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio. After de Blasio was elected, his office repeatedly featured Sarsour in press releases supporting the mayor’s positions on education and other matters. Moreover, his Mayor’s Fund pledged $500,000 to AAANY in 2016.In a February 2015 appearance on Rachel Maddow‘s television program, Sarsour lamented that a nationwide epidemic of “Islamophobia” was responsible for “anti-sharia bills trying to ban us [Muslims] from practicing our faith,” “mosques being vandalized,” and Muslim “kids being executed” in the United States.In August 2015 Sarsour spoke out in support of the incarcerated Palestinian Islamic Jihad member Muhammad Allan, a known recruiter of suicide bombers.
And how easy with that when there is all the State and Federal funded wimmin's groups.In October 2015, Sarsour posted on Twitter a photo of a young Palestinian boy clutching two stones as he stared down a group of Israeli soldiers, and labeled it “The definition of courage.” When numerous Twitter users, including Queens Councilman Rory Lancman, subsequently criticized Sarsour’s controversial post, she tweeted in response: “The Zionist trolls are out to play. Bring it. You will never silence me.”On Melissa Harris-Perry‘s television program on December 12, 2015, Sarsour lamented the allegedly long list of “attacks on [Muslim] individuals and on mosques” that had been perpetrated by Americans who — by misperceiving all Muslims as potential terrorists — were themselves “engaging in terrorism against the innocent [Muslim] community that has nothing to do with [terrorism].”Sarsour also scoffed at the notion of Muslim integration into American society: “We can’t change who we are. This is how we look [with Muslim attire]. We can’t integrate and assimilate…. We’re gonna look like this when we walk out into the streets of our cities when we’re traveling in this country.”In 2015 as well, Sarsour co-founded MPOWER Change, “an online organization that enables [Muslims] to respond [to key events] in rapid, nationwide, coordinated ways as a community.”
According to CounterJihad.com, Sarsour “has attended numerous rallies sponsored by Al-Awda, promoted and solicited donations for their events, and … spoken at their rallies. Sarsour has also solicited donations for the Hamas-affiliated Palestine Children’s Relief Fund.
What is clear is that these people do not hide. They announce themselves. They are in clear view. But our Governments and security services, our police and our media turn a blind eye or actively deny that such evil terrorists are amongst us.
Supported by mindless but well funded Feminist groups who have clout, these wimmin have not a working brain amongst them if they think that the Islamists will treat them better than they are already. As for the LGBTwossnames.... well their brains are addled. Islamists kill them but they seem studiously unaware.
That is why Trump has a job ahead. The swamp he has to drain is immense.
Thankfully, I just have to pull pints and wash the floors.
