Ben Shapiro Stormed Congress and Blew the Left’s Argument Against Free Speech to Smithereens

Here’s the key — “You don’t actually have to say anything insulting to microaggress. Somebody merely needs to take offense.” – Ben Shapiro

On Thursday, Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro testified about free speech on college campuses before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. In less than five minutes, he dissected and destroyed the Left’s argument against free speech.

“Free speech is under assault because of a three-step argument made by advocates and justifiers of violence,” Shapiro declared in his opening remarks. “The first step is they say that the validity or invalidity of an argument can be judged solely by the ethnic, sexual, racial, or cultural identity of the person making the argument.”

This “intersectionality” argument — that society structurally oppresses people of ethnic, sexual, racial, or cultural identities and therefore only those who have been oppressed can speak about certain issues — is the ground of the “microaggression” culture stifling speech on campuses, the Daily Wire editor argued.

“The second step is they claim that those who say otherwise are engaged in what they call verbal violence,” Sharipo added. “The final step is that they conclude that physical violence is sometimes justified in order to stop such verbal abuse.”

In order to understand how college campuses shut down speech — often but not always conservative speech — Americans must understand the philosophy of “intersectionality.” Shapiro argued that this philosophy dominates college campuses and “a large segment of today’s Democratic Party.” Continue reading at pjmedia.com.

What’s Worse, Voter Fraud or Trying to Stop it?

The Government Accountability Institute found 8471 instances of double voting in 21 states during the 2016 elections, but Sunday on MSNBC, congresswoman Karen Bass (D-CA) said President Donald Trump’s voter-fraud commission was an “assault on our democracy.”

The above study only considered double voting, but many other types of voter fraud exist including falsifying registration information, destroying ballots and noncitizen voting. So the obvious question is: What is a greater assault on our democracy, voter fraud, or a commission to investigate and help clean up voter fraud?

8471 cases of double voting uncovered during 2016 election.

Kellyanne Conway Takes Down “Fake News” Chris Cuomo on CNN

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway went head-to-head with Chris Cuomo in a fiery thirty five minute shootout on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday (Note to those politically correct snowflakes lacking a sense of humor or a sense of irony: the words fiery and shootout are used metaphorically) .

At one point in the exchange Conway asked Cuomo: “Aren’t you the least bit reluctant, if not embarrassed that you now talk about Russia more than you talk about America? Doesn’t this bother you?”

In the video clip below Fox News host Tucker Carlson played a montage of excerpts from this interview on his show.

Lessons From Jon Ossoff Loss: Move Left, Forget Civility

Democrats are concluding that Jon Ossoff’s disappointing loss to Karen Handel in the special election for Georgia’s 6th congressional district on Tuesday means they must move even further left, and reject calls for more civility.

That might seem odd, especially in the wake of last week’s shooting attack against Republican members of Congress, and given that Handel won partly by tying Ossoff to the left and to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

But Democrats are convinced that Ossoff fell short by moving towards the center after running as the darling of the “#Resistance” in the primary election in April, and by trying to convince moderate Republicans to cross over.

The Washington Post reports:

Indeed, more than 200 miles to the north, a dramatically underfunded Democrat, Archie Parnell, nearly pulled off an upset victory in a House seat that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee largely ignored. In Ossoff, Democrats hoped they had found a potential new path to defeating Republicans with a message of peace and civility. They calculated that the fiery rage, often associated with supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), would not win over moderate Republicans and centrists, whose support Ossoff needed to have any chance to win a district that Tom Price, the six-term congressman who is Trump’s health secretary, won by more than 20 percentage points in November.

So Ossoff chose the high priest route instead of the fierce warrior. It was civil disobedience rather than civil unrest. And he still lost, by an even wider margin than the almost forgotten Parnell.

The Post quotes Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee: “The best way for Democrats to maximize gains in 2018 – especially in purple and red districts – is to harness the power of the resistance and field candidates who proudly challenge power.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Congressman Ted Yoho Town Hall – The REAL “Congressman With Guts”

Hello Patriots,

a

First, we present to you the official invitation from Congressman Yoho’s office for his Town Hall this Saturday March 4th:

a

Hello!

a

Please join me for a town hall discussion at Countryside Baptist Church ,on Saturday, March 4th. The event will begin at 10:00 a.m. (Doors open at 9:00am). I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts and concerns.

a

Feel free to invite friends and neighbors to join the discussion about the important issues facing our community and our country.

a

See you on March 4!
         

Countryside Baptist Church
10926 NW 39th Avenue  Gainesville, FL 32606

Now for the interesting stuff. Many of you may have heard that for some reason this is one of the town halls that the left community organizers have decided to target. Actually it is quite an honor if you think about it. The powers that be on the left have actually stated that they must organize and mobilize as the Tea Party groups had done in order to regain the control that they so desire. After all, once you pretty much have everything that you could want over the last eight years, it is hard to give up. So much for the Democracy that they all profess to love. So the group called INDIVISIBLE has pulled out all the plugs to get individuals to show up at this town hall and protest against Congressman Yoho and President Trump. So why do we say “protest”?
a

First, please click on the link below for the story about how these activists have been discovered-http://dennismichaellynch.com/leaked-audio-busts-town-hall-disruption-plot-wide-open/

Secondly, an ad about getting paid to protest- (A complete copy was not forwarded to us but here is what we received)

a
The Indivisible Gainesville group does in fact have a good page for individuals to submit questions-

 

They are very well organized but does make you wonder where were they during President Obama’s term? So why did you get this email?
xxx
Well, to be honest, it is a great opportunity to come out and support one of the few Congressmen who in fact has changed the course of our history for the better. Can you say “nice knowing you John Boehner.”

Not only will the local press be there but so will CSPAN. So come on out, support your Congressman and see exactly how his opponents hope to convince him to ignore those who did vote for him.

An Open Letter to the Hollywood Elite and the Rest of America:

Davi to Hollywood Elite: Invite Illegal Aliens and Refugees to the Oscars… or You’re Racists!

Here’s actor Robert Davi’s open letter to the Hollywood elite that first appeared on Breitbart:

My Dear friends and colleagues,

I have recently been pondering President Trump’s executive action with regard to our nation having extreme vetting and our immigration policy finally being enforced. It has pained me deeply to see such a violent reaction to something that, to my mind, makes absolute common sense.

Let me begin by saying that I am from a family of immigrants that came to this country for a better life. They came to the US “legally,” assimilated, integrated, and learned English to the best of their ability, and demanded we speak it. As we all know, we live in a time in which there are forces who wish to destroy our way of life.

There are thousands of illegal immigrant criminals in the United States whose country of origin will not take them back. These criminals are free on the streets of America.

We have recently heard from a plethora of Hollywood stars on this issue — Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro, Ashley Judd, Madonna, major agencies, musicians, singers and even the indomitable Shia LaBeouf. After much prayer on this issue, I must now stand in solidarity with all of my Hollywood elite brethren. They are right! The rest of you are wrong!

It is now in this spirit that I make an appeal to all in Hollywood and the media for us to use the Oscars to take a stand for the entire world to see and hear. It is time for Hollywood to lead the way.

I propose that Meryl Steep, Chelsea Handler, Richard Gere, Robert DeNiro, Christoph Waltz and others lead an Oscar first: let’s do away with the rules, barriers, and tickets to the Oscars and after-parties, such as the swanky Vanity Fair party or the Weinsteins’ star-studded affair. I ask all migrants, all illegal immigrant criminals and all un-vetted refugees to converge on Hollywood to come to the Oscars and all the after-parties, even those held at the mansions or the Chateau Marmont or anywhere else. After all, we in the Hollywood community want to show all Islamic extremists that we have love in our hearts — and what better way to do that than by inviting them along on our most important night?

It’s time the walls and electronic security gates come down. There are roughly 3,600 seats to the Oscars; we should have at least 2,500 seats reserved for illegal aliens, refugees and migrants, or maybe even more. For those celebrities skipping the ceremony, each should invite at least 100 illegal aliens, refugees or migrants to come to their home to watch the Oscars with them. The Academy and the Vanity Fair people should also get the 150 criminals who have recently been deported from Los Angeles and bring them to the show as honored guests.

I find it curious that when President Obama did the same exact thing — and more — in terms of enforcing the law on illegal immigration, the Hollywood elite were silent. Why were they silent then, but are so vocal now when President Trump is doing basically the same thing? Is Hollywood racist? Why — when Christians are being slaughtered in Syria, Iraq, and other places in the Middle East — is Hollywood silent?

Of course, the people that wish death upon Christians, Jews, gay people and the West are greeted with open arms by the elite in Hollywood — so why can’t they come to our Oscar parties?

Additionally, I am now pleased to announce that Hollywood and the recording industry no longer require the protection of the Men in Blue at any of their events! We do not need a country of laws; only a country of illegal immigrants, refugees and migrants. How dare we ignore the words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”

So now, we ask you all: please come to the Oscars on February 26th at the Dolby Theater on Hollywood Boulevard. We welcome you to our homes with open arms and love in our hearts. Together, let us celebrate the Progressive left and its policies, which have helped make blue collar America Tired, Hungry, and Poor.

And the Oscar goes to…

With love in my heart,

Robert Davi
