Ted Cruz rips into the ‘anti-Semitic left’ and liberals are really angry about it!

The TedNado ripped into the anti-Semitic left with the latest examples that the media is completely ignoring, and liberals are really angry about it.

We posted about the New York Times anti-Semitic cartoon here.

Pretty reasonable given how Democrats have been more open to anti-Semitism lately. But not for these crazy liberals:



There’s tons more, but that’s a pretty decent sampling of liberals who can’t handle Cruz tweeting out the uncomfortable facts about Democrats.

Well that should be it for Sunday.

Have an open thread. Here’s some comment fodder!!

This documentary is absolutely horrifying but a must watch:

Also:

See y’all tomorrow!!!

  1. Uh oh. Glenn Beck is reporting that lots of young wokescolds are upset because some of their favorite characters were killed off. Anyone who has been watching or reading comics for more than 5 minutes knows that they always come back.

  2. Where are the rest of the Republicans calling out the intellectually vacant Left? And tweet like you mean it: call them immoral morons and pathetically stupid humans. Profanity is not prohibited.

  3. Regarding the horrible (as in sad) Seattle video, it boils down to three problems: 1) Democrats/Leftists, 2) Illegal Aliens, and 3) Free drugs/needles/stuff. But fundamentally, it’s democrats and Leftists who freaking think they know what’s best for us.

    And I get so heated from this because once they pollute and destroy a city/state (like Detroit), it becomes unlivable and those vermin spread out and infest neighboring red states that are thriving – and the cycle repeats. The Left leaves devastation in it’s wake. A lower form of evil imo. :exclamation:

    1. @Sentinel This is perpetuated by local governments, too. When I lived in Rockford, a lot of Chicago criminals were paroled there.

      1. Morning Doc, I live in Seattle and must constantly be on the lookout for needles, piles of crap and idiots begging me for change at every turn. It’s much like that southpark episode where the homeless were like zombies living on change.

        1. Morning, Silence! I hope that you can get out. There is the remote chance that some responsible leaders will be elected…

          1. The part that really sucks is that I moved here from California to get AWAY from these idiotic policies only to have the multitudes of buffoons follow me and vote to implement them here too! UGH!!!

    2. #4 insanely high taxes and extremely expensive housing
      #5 not allowing the cops to do their jobs, and leftist courts and judges who are soft on crime. The list goes on and on.

  4. Go Bret Stephens… NYT opinion piece:

    “As prejudices go, anti-Semitism can sometimes be hard to pin down, but on Thursday the opinion pages of The New York Times international edition provided a textbook illustration of it.

    Except that The Times wasn’t explaining anti-Semitism. It was purveying it.

    It did so in the form of a cartoon, provided to the newspaper by a wire service and published directly above an unrelated column by Tom Friedman, in which a guide dog with a prideful countenance and the face of Benjamin Netanyahu leads a blind, fat Donald Trump wearing dark glasses and a black yarmulke. Lest there be any doubt as to the identity of the dog-man, it wears a collar from which hangs a Star of David.

    Here was an image that, in another age, might have been published in the pages of Der Stürmer. The Jew in the form of a dog. The small but wily Jew leading the dumb and trusting American. The hated Trump being Judaized with a skullcap. The nominal servant acting as the true master. The cartoon checked so many anti-Semitic boxes that the only thing missing was a dollar sign.

    The image also had an obvious political message: Namely, that in the current administration, the United States follows wherever Israel wants to go. This is false — consider Israel’s horrified reaction to Trump’s announcement last year that he intended to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria — but it’s beside the point. There are legitimate ways to criticize Trump’s approach to Israel, in pictures as well as words. But there was nothing legitimate about this cartoon.

    So what was it doing in The Times?

    For some Times readers — or, as often, former readers — the answer is clear: The Times has a longstanding Jewish problem, dating back to World War II, when it mostly buried news about the Holocaust, and continuing into the present day in the form of intensely adversarial coverage of Israel. The criticism goes double when it comes to the editorial pages, whose overall approach toward the Jewish state tends to range, with some notable exceptions, from tut-tutting disappointment to thunderous condemnation.

    For these readers, the cartoon would have come like the slip of the tongue that reveals the deeper institutional prejudice. What was long suspected is, at last, revealed.

    The real story is a bit different, though not in ways that acquit The Times. The cartoon appeared in the print version of the international edition, which has a limited overseas circulation, a much smaller staff, and far less oversight than the regular edition. Incredibly, the cartoon itself was selected and seen by just one midlevel editor right before the paper went to press.

    An initial editor’s note acknowledged that the cartoon “included anti-Semitic tropes,” “was offensive,” and that “it was an error of judgment to publish it.” On Sunday, The Times issued an additional statement saying it was “deeply sorry” for the cartoon and that “significant changes” would be made in terms of internal processes and training.

    In other words, the paper’s position is that it is guilty of a serious screw-up but not a cardinal sin. Not quite.

    The problem with the cartoon isn’t that its publication was a willful act of anti-Semitism. It wasn’t. The problem is that its publication was an astonishing act of ignorance of anti-Semitism — and that, at a publication that is otherwise hyper-alert to nearly every conceivable expression of prejudice, from mansplaining to racial microaggressions to transphobia.
    Imagine, for instance, if the dog on a leash in the image hadn’t been the Israeli prime minister but instead a prominent woman such as Nancy Pelosi, a person of color such as John Lewis, or a Muslim such as Ilhan Omar. Would that have gone unnoticed by either the wire service that provides the Times with images or the editor who, even if he were working in haste, selected it?

    The question answers itself. And it raises a follow-on: How have even the most blatant expressions of anti-Semitism become almost undetectable to editors who think it’s part of their job to stand up to bigotry?

    The reason is the almost torrential criticism of Israel and the mainstreaming of anti-Zionism, including by this paper, which has become so common that people have been desensitized to its inherent bigotry. So long as anti-Semitic arguments or images are framed, however speciously, as commentary about Israel, there will be a tendency to view them as a form of political opinion, not ethnic prejudice. But as I noted in a Sunday Review essay in February, anti-Zionism is all but indistinguishable from anti-Semitism in practice and often in intent, however much progressives try to deny this.

    Add to the mix the media’s routine demonization of Netanyahu, and it is easy to see how the cartoon came to be drawn and published: Already depicted as a malevolent Jewish leader, it’s just a short step to depict him as a malevolent Jew.

    I’m writing this column conscious of the fact that it is unusually critical of the newspaper in which it appears, and it is a credit to the paper that it is publishing it. I have now been with The Times for two years and I’m certain that the charge that the institution is in any way anti-Semitic is a calumny.

    But the publication of the cartoon isn’t just an “error of judgment,” either. The paper owes the Israeli prime minister an apology. It owes itself some serious reflection as to how it came to publish that cartoon — and how its publication came, to many longtime readers, as a shock but not a surprise.”

      1. Searching my memory of mass, I’d say from one of the several baskets that are passed around.

          1. I hate when Google does that to me! I copied the URL for the Epoch Times article, yet I posted the Google search link to the article. 😡

            1. @dr-strangelove I’m about to get cleaned up and dressed to head to town for groceries and dog food. I’ll be away for several hours. Hold down the fort and I’ll catch up with you later. You always make my day brighter!! 🙂

    1. Funny-ish story, Doc.

      I witnessed a girl crash her car over the weekend. She was either knocked unconscious in the crash or fell getting out of the car, and blacked out. I and another driver stopped to render aid. As I walked up with my FAK, the other guy says “She has a BETO sticker on her car.” As I checked her for injuries (still unconscious), and he directed traffic around us, he says “when she wakes up tell her Trump is still her president.”

      Couldn’t help but laugh.

      The girl was fine (other than the BETO support) when I left her with EMS.

  5. Boy that Seattle video – I’m about 3/4 through it, and that city’s leadership is hellbent on destroying the emerald city. But yea, let’s legalize drugs guys. You’re free to carry up to 30 doses of heroin. They won’t bust you for using in the street. Oh, ransacking a store to feed that addiction? Well, OK – just so long as you don’t assault anyone.

    I feel for the cops in this one. Totally have their hands tied. Or, worse, they’re completely demoralized by doing their jobs and then having the city just undo it the next day.

    Oh, and the best part – you know what the city’s response to this video was? They hired a PR firm. WTF.

  7. Thanks for the link to Seattle is Dying. I’ll watch it tonight on TV/YouTube. I’m sure it will end up being a cautionary tale on Liberalism.

  8. Many of the homeless don’t want to help themselves and they don’t want to work. Not all, but a lot. Most of the homeless are not like the crazy guy they highlighted. I’ve seen video of homeless saying they wouldn’t work to get off the street. A guy offered them a job and they didn’t want it.

    What to do? I have no idea. Just keep them out of my town.

  9. Watching some of that Seattle documentary in bits and pieces this morning. Very sad. The west coast has so much beauty and so many natural resources. Without those natural resources, they would collapse under the weight of leftist policies. They’d be no better than Detroit.

  10. Uh oh. Glenn Beck is reporting that lots of young wokescolds are upset because some of their favorite characters were killed off. Anyone who has been watching or reading comics for more than 5 minutes knows that they always come back.

      1. I have not logged in to twitter for years. Every once in awhile I just read some twitter accounts…james is one of them.

        I see the beta @jack suspended his account for the Ralph Waldo emerson quote

        Come for the king, better not miss….

  14. Watching some of that Seattle documentary in bits and pieces this morning. Very sad. The west coast has so much beauty and so many natural resources. Without those natural resources, they would collapse under the weight of leftist policies. They’d be no better than Detroit.

  15. When is GOP going to say enough is enough to white supremacy?

    It’s so weird the way that Dems level these kinds of accusations. Who is the white supremacist in Congress that the GOP supports? The GOP doesn’t really have a Rashida Tlaib, an Ilhan Omar, or a Keith Ellison.

    When is GOP going to hold their own white supremest members accountable?

    They do. When Steve King even made marginal comments supporting whiteness, the GOP stripped him of all of his committee assignments. Even King didn’t fight it and condemned his own words.

    1. If anyone got the white supremacists excited that they will have more influence it’s the media overhyping the influence they do have.

      They are still a small despised fringe group.

    2. It’s amazing how historically ignorant those who support the Left are. They are incredibly ignorant of the how whole white supremacy thing has been and still is solely a product of the Left. Even Richard Spencer votes Democrat and adheres to much of the beliefs of the Left. The only difference between the old white supremacy movement of the post Civil War years is cloaking it all in a fog of self-righteousness that allows them to use the same tactics while making people think that they are doing something for good. The reverse racism of the Left is still racism and their outright segregation is to be found on almost every college campus today. The Left is still the horror that they so vehemently claim that those on the Right are. We can only pray that the “Walk Away” movement continues to gain steam as people start to see that.

    3. Steve King’s remarks were DELIBERATELY misinterpreted. Just as Trump’s remarks about Charlottesville were.

  16. White people are not better than anyone else, they are also not worse. I am disgusted with those who try to curry favor by dissing their own skin color.

    The Bible speaks of original sin and I am a believer. Whether White, Black, Yellow, Brown, Jew or Greek, all men are in the same situation. Non are worthy, no not one. Jesus died for all, so all could find forgiveness in HIm.

    1. Good post! The Left continues to deny science. It has been proven genetically that all people are one race, the human race. The only major difference is the amount of melanin in our hides. The Left on the other hand believes that skin color equals speciation and that is not true. Humans are more like cats and/or dogs in this regard. Dogs and cats come in all colors, sizes and shapes but all are the same species among their kind. A spotted brown kitty can mate with a striped gray kitty and we’d still get kitties. Some are spotted, some striped, some both but all are still cats. . A dachshund can mate with a Great Dane and we’d still have dogs, funny looking ones, but the puppies would still be dogs. All humans are of the same species regardless of the color of their skin and none of us are better or worse because of the color of our skins than any other human. We are ALL sinners in need of a Savior regardless of skin color and trying to elevate one skin color over another is just, well, plain…ignorant.

      1. Haha! You will have a hard time avoiding them unless you get off the internet. It’s all over the place 😆

        1. I suspected from the very beginning that she would come out on top at the end. Martin isn’t exactly a top notch mystery writer.

    1. Yes indeed, but I thought the episode overall was surprisingly meh. Apparently some people here, *cough* @dr-strangelove *cough* aren’t caught up so I won’t say more.

    1. Funny-ish story, Doc.

      I witnessed a girl crash her car over the weekend. She was either knocked unconscious in the crash or fell getting out of the car, and blacked out. I and another driver stopped to render aid.

      Couldn’t help but laugh.

      The girl was fine (other than the BETO support) when I left her with EMS.

      1. That’s funny, all of the years I’ve been driving, I never saw a single accident (although I did see the aftermath of dozens and dozens) until last winter, I saw two in the space of half an hour.

        1. I see ’em once or twice a year. It’s why I built out a first aid kit. If they get any more frequent I’m considering a GoPro to augment my dash cam.

            1. I-10 Texas from Beaumont to Winnie, and State Highway 69/96 North from I-10 to the county line.

              I usually get at least one a year at Major Drive and SH 105 in Beaumont, too.

    2. Mayor Pete stole his thunder. He’s a white, pencil-neck, liberal liar and he’s gay!

      Odd how “Mayor Pete” had no problem with Pence until Petey decided to run for president.

      1. If Hickenlooper went transgender, Booty-Judge wouldn’t have a chance. Well, even less than he has now.

        1. @dr-strangelove Did you hear Hickenlooper doing a campaign event and was trying to make an economic point using the GDP but couldn’t remember what the letters stood for? 😆

      1. Searching my memory of mass, I’d say from one of the several baskets that are passed around.

          1. I hate when Google does that to me! I copied the URL for the Epoch Times article, yet I posted the Google search link to the article. 😡

  17. All the hipsters, democrats and Leftists, asinine laws, regulations, policies, etc. and the dregs who invaded from California… destroyed Seattle. They are the next Detroit – because Leftists are too damn selfish, parasitic and ignorant to think clearly.

  18. Going through Kansas City yesterday, I saw two people sleeping on a hot air grate and signs of homelessness in several places. While not as bad as Seattle, you see it all over in the big cities.

    All it takes to change is the political will. I lived in a neighborhood in Rockford, Illinois with gangs, drugs and prostitutes on the corner 24/7. A conservative, independent mayor was elected and the streets were cleaned up to a great extent. I have since moved, but business takes me through there occasionally and it’s worse now than ever. People just don’t learn, I guess

    1. Doc I’m afraid that if the current front runner for KCMO mayor wins that homeless problem will grow astronomically worse. He’s a Dem uber-Leftist giveaway artist that reminds me a lot of the corrupt politicos in Chicago and St, Louis. Even though he is a Dem, outgoing mayor, Sly James was probably the most conservative mayor KCMO has had in a long while. He was far more conservative than former mayor, now congressman, Uber-Left darling Emmanuel Cleaver. Cleaver was instrumental in almost singlehandedly destroying KCMO downtown during his time as mayor. James cleaned up downtown and brought a lot of good things over the past few years. Sadly, the current front runner is a Cleaver clone so those good things may quickly be gone and KCMO will revert to high crime, more slum lords and boarded up buildings.

      1. Sorry to hear that, philliesthoughts. I’ve actually ridden my bike around downtown KC, KS. I got some funny looks from the street people, maybe it was my NRA hat. For some reason I thought that you were from Philadelphia.

        1. Lol! You probably got looks in KCKS simply because you actually had the hutzpah to ride a bike down there. That city is trying hard to change but it’s very slow going. Sometimes I think it’s because Kansas has been trending recently from its traditional Red in a slow slide towards Blue. Never thought I’d see the day that Missouri would be more conservative than Kansas but after the last elections sadly we’re there. Nah, the ‘Phillies” thing is a play on my name that my hubby started when we first met. We don’t live in KCMO but hubs works there so we keep tabs on what goes on there a lot.

      2. BTW, I always listen to KCMO when I’m in the area. One of the few stations that carries Chris Plante.

  19. Funny how the party that keeps crying racism, white privilege, and white nationalism has a litany of presidential candidates are are mostly while males. They keep screaming for acceptance but where are the blacks and Hispanics running in their party?

  20. I watched about 7 minutes of the video, I was surprised that the poster boy for crime, Chicago, was only mid-pack. (Added to my watch later list. Videos eat up data on the phone.)

  21. For those of you who follow the comics industry, here’s a vid worth watching to get an idea how SJWs operate. They ruin everything they touch, and thanks to them, comics are awful these days. Unless you follow the brave souls who decided to crowdfund their creations, and are shaking up the industry, big time.

    It’s a rant by Ethan Van Sciver, a great comic artist well worth watching on his youtube channel.

    https://youtu.be/EcqSD2_mqW0

    1. Thanks, K-Bob. I didn’t think that Infinity War would never end, and it didn’t. Endgame is definitely not on my must watch list.

      1. Actually the fema-Nazis are fuming because of the amount of on screen time the women got in comparison to the men characters. What really twisted their nips was that their super-woke hero Captain Marvel only got 15 minutes of screen time.

        1. If she was in Infinity, I missed it. If you’re referring to End, I will be missing it.

    2. It really breaks my heart to see the trash Netflix puts out and calls “comedy”. For every one good comic there are literally 100 garbage virtue signalers out for a clapplause, instead of a laugh. It’s nothing but a woke-a-thon.

      Meanwhile, the comics of yesteryear are cutting specials in the style of 10-20 years ago and really, really killing it.

      Wife and I have enjoyed Dry Bar Comedy. Truly funny, and absolutely no profanity or Woke-ness.

      1. I don’t find much comedy very funny since I quit drinking. I was going to cancel Netflix over the weekend, but I never got around to it. I look through my “Keep watching for James” and there are a dozen shows I lost interest in halfway through the season or didn’t get through the first episode. Gotham is good, but most of it is swill. Amazon has much better writing and production. Bosch is my favorite, and Sneaky Pete is good, too.

      1. I loved R. Crumb! Every party pad I frequented had a couple copies of his stuff laying around. Mr. Natural, The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, Checkered Demon… of course, today the humorless wokescolds are unable to see the satire, although some of it was admittedly plain ol’, low-brow, gross-out entertainment for stoners.

        1. Comics/Rock Music Art that became culture:

          Big Daddy Roth in the early 60s.

          Gilbert Shelton and R. Crumb in the late 60s & early 70s.

          Roger Dean in the mid 70s.

          Todd McFarlane in the late 80s

          I don’t know who else achieved such iconic status.

          I love doing an image search for Gilbert Shelton rock posters. Still freaking awesome. Originals are worth big money by now, I’d bet.

          When visiting Austin, I had to grab a beer in the Vulcan Gas Lightshow Company and drive by the old shop where Gilbert used to print ’em up.

          1. Wow! Haven’t thought of Roth in a long time. My favorite in the ’60s was Frank Frazetta. I’d imagine that his Boroughs covers are collectable now.

            1. Oh yeah. Frazetta and Vallejo pretty much owned the thud and blunder fantasy book cover scene for quite a while.

  22. When is GOP going to say enough is enough to white supremacy?

    It’s so weird the way that Dems level these kinds of accusations. Who is the white supremacist in Congress that the GOP supports? The GOP doesn’t really have a Rashida Tlaib, an Ilhan Omar, or a Keith Ellison.

Even Richard Spencer votes Democrat and adheres to much of the beliefs of the Left. The only difference between the old white supremacy movement of the post Civil War years is cloaking it all in a fog of self-righteousness that allows them to use the same tactics while making people think that they are doing something for good. The reverse racism of the Left is still racism and their outright segregation is to be found on almost every college campus today. The Left is still the horror that they so vehemently claim that those on the Right are. We can only pray that the “Walk Away” movement continues to gain steam as people start to see that.

    3. If anyone got the white supremacists excited that they will have more influence it’s the media overhyping the influence they do have.

      They are still a small despised fringe group.

  23. White people are not better than anyone else, they are also not worse. I am disgusted with those who try to curry favor by dissing their own skin color.

    The Bible speaks of original sin and I am a believer. Whether White, Black, Yellow, Brown, Jew or Greek, all men are in the same situation. Non are worthy, no not one. Jesus died for all, so all could find forgiveness in HIm.

    1. Good post! The Left continues to deny science. It has been proven genetically that all people are one race, the human race. The only major difference is the amount of melanin in our hides. The Left on the other hand believes that skin color equals speciation and that is not true. Humans are more like cats and/or dogs in this regard. Dogs and cats come in all colors, sizes and shapes but all are the same species among their kind. A spotted brown kitty can mate with a striped gray kitty and we’d still get kitties. Some are spotted, some striped, some both but all are still cats. . A dachshund can mate with a Great Dane and we’d still have dogs, funny looking ones, but the puppies would still be dogs. All humans are of the same species regardless of the color of their skin and none of us are better or worse because of the color of our skins than any other human. We are ALL sinners in need of a Savior regardless of skin color and trying to elevate one skin color over another is just, well, plain…ignorant.

      1. Haha! You will have a hard time avoiding them unless you get off the internet. It’s all over the place 😆

        1. I suspected from the very beginning that she would come out on top at the end. Martin isn’t exactly a top notch mystery writer.

    1. Yes indeed, but I thought the episode overall was surprisingly meh. Apparently some people here, *cough* @dr-strangelove *cough* aren’t caught up so I won’t say more.

  24. All the hipsters, democrats and Leftists, asinine laws, regulations, policies, etc. and the dregs who invaded from California… destroyed Seattle. They are the next Detroit – because Leftists are too damn selfish, parasitic and ignorant to think clearly.

  25. 1) Go Ted. Bring the sunglasses.
    2) The Seattle video is horrifying, but seeing what Rhode Island has done is incredible.
    New Jersey is on its way to becoming Seattle. Enforcement and intervention are clearly the solution, not bail reform, legalization and more sanctuary cities.

  26. Going through Kansas City yesterday, I saw two people sleeping on a hot air grate and signs of homelessness in several places. While not as bad as Seattle, you see it all over in the big cities.

    All it takes to change is the political will. I lived in a neighborhood in Rockford, Illinois with gangs, drugs and prostitutes on the corner 24/7. A conservative, independent mayor was elected and the streets were cleaned up to a great extent. I have since moved, but business takes me through there occasionally and it’s worse now than ever. People just don’t learn, I guess

  27. Funny how the party that keeps crying racism, white privilege, and white nationalism has a litany of presidential candidates are are mostly while males. They keep screaming for acceptance but where are the blacks and Hispanics running in their party?

    1. There is a lot of good on Twitter, I followed a number of conservatives until I was suspended for hate speech.

      1. @Dr. Strangelove I don’t do Twitter, so what I see is the vast hatred, anger, and bullying that I believe is growing and getting worse. I honestly believe that without the constant fueling of the bonfire from Twitter and other social media our society would not be the cesspool it is. I do see good aspects to Twitter but I just don’t know if they outweigh the bad. And, your suspension from Twitter while much much worse is allowed to stand is an example of their agenda and bias. Just the way I see it and feel about it.

        1. @Lillie Yeah, it’s a two-edged sword. There’s good content (I followed that Right Scoop site and this Soopermexican guy) and it is also a window to the true attitude of the left.

  28. I watched about 7 minutes of the video, I was surprised that the poster boy for crime, Chicago, was only mid-pack. (Added to my watch later list. Videos eat up data on the phone.)

  29. For those of you who follow the comics industry, here’s a vid worth watching to get an idea how SJWs operate. They ruin everything they touch, and thanks to them, comics are awful these days. Unless you follow the brave souls who decided to crowdfund their creations, and are shaking up the industry, big time.

    It’s a rant by Ethan Van Sciver, a great comic artist well worth watching on his youtube channel.

    1. I heard someone on the radio last week say that while people often criticize Trump for his indiscreet tweets and his “unpresidential-like” behavior, he is actually our first effective General in the current Culture War.

      The “Mr. Nice Guys” that we put up before like Romney, McCain (Mr. Reach Across the Aisle), and the two Bushes were completely ineffective in stopping the ever encroaching “fundamental transformation” that began long ago.

      1. @nc checks and balances
        I was listening to Mark Levin’s podcast from Friday earlier, and Mark was saying that it’s a good thing that Trump is tweeting so much because the networks refuse to give Trump airtime similar to FDR’s famous fireside chats. They even begrudged him his SOTU address in February. I blame Pelosi for that…and the lib media too of course.

    2. @Danaellen More likely an economic crash with anarchy and chaos until someone fills the power vacuum.

      1. If you live in a state that doesn’t have an “If the federal government collapses then” plan I’d advise you move.

        To Texas.

        1. I wish that I had moved to Texas, rather than Iowa. I don’t think that I have the energy left for another one.

  30. Seattle is a democratic stronghold so do not blame the Republicans or President Trump.He has given those bums plenty of opportunity to go to work. The Space Needle used to be a wonderful place for Dinner or lunch,been there for both.

  31. These are perfect examples of the sheer brain washed mind numbing pig ignorance of today’s progressive.

  32. Another thing my cousin is crying about health insurance….and she voted for Obama twice! Grind my teeth!

  33. You know what we have the most of in my big metro city..crime! Not racial not anti semetic…thief’s.. car jacking and break ins or fooling the elderly and stealing their money! Stop misleading people!!!!

    1. A carjacker got shot in the head in the south Loop last week. I was surprised, because WLS-AM (ABC) reported it as a good thing.

    1. Right in Trafalgar Square. Pretty nasty. You know there will be urine all around them with a lovely smell.

      I will say that in London, it seemed that finding a restroom to use was always harder than here in the US.

  34. Seattle voted for that. What are the residents doing to correct it other than bitching at the city council while they get laughed at?

  35. Someone around here supporting white nationalists and white supremacists? I must have missed that one.

  36. Maybe Seattle needs to get rid of the powers to be but that would mean voting Dems out of office and that won’t happen.

  37. come one, come all…we are a sanctuary…open borders…give them money (not mine fool, yours)
    what could go wrong?… nada…come one come all

  38. Looks like Sooper has been perusing Reddit. I saw a couple of those videos today while the hubby was scrolling through.

    1. @squirrelly Since I got suspended from Twitter, maybe I should check out Reddit. I subscribed to Ruptly, which was a great site for international news.

        1. They’ve reported on things that you don’t hear about here, like the yellow jerseys.

    1. @mst3k Hmmmm…………that’s a little harsh. Wouldn’t have liked it but wouldn’t kill him either 😉

    2. More to that story from what I was hearing the other day. Of course, no one should be threatening with a gun unless the intent is to use it. There is only one purpose afterall.

      1. @squirrelly Yes, i heard the husband had the porn channel once before, and she cancelled it. I guess when she saw it was on there again she lost control…

        1. Supposedly, a church going woman and he an alcoholic who she felt sorry for and decided to take care of, rather than give him the boot, because he had no one else. Supposedly, she went out to his “man cave” to confront him with a gun in hand and shot at the ground (?). It ricocheted. At least, that’s the 3rd hand story of a church acquaintance. Either way, her reaction was extreme.

  39. Instead of denouncing the anti-Semitic of the party, the left changes the subject and repeats the lies about the GOP supporting white racist and nationalist. How soon they forget about Black Lives Matter rioting, looting and burning of Baltimore and other Democrat enclaves, etc.

    1. It’s actually to see the look on their face when you tell that white nationalist and supremacist have threatened to kill your family and burn your house down. And your white and GOP.
      When they ask why. I tell them because instead of being a keyboard warrior. I called them on their bs to their face.
      Plus the fact that if anybody. I don’t care what color their skin has to play the race card. Then they have already lost any kind of argument they were trying. Because effectively that just proves they have no argument.

  40. From the Seattle is Dying video, it’s no coincidence that the highest property crimes of the biggest 20 cities in the country are also dominated by Democrats. They have the opposite of the Midas touch.

  41. 1) Go Ted. Bring the sunglasses.
    2) The Seattle video is horrifying, but seeing what Rhode Island has done is incredible.
    New Jersey is on its way to becoming Seattle. Enforcement and intervention are clearly the solution, not bail reform, legalization and more sanctuary cities.

  42. I live near Seattle, and this film is no exaggeration. It is an embarrassment. I’m just shocked that one of the local stations dared to expose this since they are all liberal here, in a liberal run city.

    1. I can’t edit my comment. Really? It was supposed to say “after I calm down”. Sorry, but I dislike this comment format a lot.

  43. Woohoo, a Tednado thread, and an open thread too. Life is good. Thanks Soop….you spoil us.

    One day closer to moving out of this state, and starting my new life in Oklahoma. I really can’t wait. 😎

    1. I hope your move will go as smoothly as possible, Wendy. We need more threads about Ted, our soon to be President!

      1. @Francis
        Thanks Francis 🙂
        I`ll be having a yard sale next month selling 30 years worth of memories. It’s going to be tough.

    2. @wendzpnw That’s great, I hope it’s not OKC, though. It seems that every big city is corrupt these days.

      1. @Dr. Strangelove
        No it’s nowhere near. It’s on the OK/MO border where I will be moving to around the 20th May
        🙂

        1. Cool. I’m actually in OK right now, at a rest area on I-35 by the KS border. Pretty crime free here, but then cattle tend to be rather peaceable.

          1. @dr-strangelove

            “…but then cattle tend to be rather peaceable.”

            When they’re not destroying our climate. 😉

            1. @Sentinel Well, if you’ve ever been close to cow flatulence, it does destroy the environment in a very localized area.

              1. @Dr. Strangelove Oh boy, do I know what you mean! Never park near a fully loaded cattle truck!

                1. My employer’s main business is feeder cattle. I park my truck 50′ from a feed lot. Luckily, I’m upwind most of the time.

  44. IMHO, Twitter needs to become extinct. America would be so much better off without it.

  45. Seattle is a democratic stronghold so do not blame the Republicans or President Trump.He has given those bums plenty of opportunity to go to work. The Space Needle used to be a wonderful place for Dinner or lunch,been there for both.
