We have a new poll question up on my website this morning: Do you agree with the TV networks' plan to stop showing the National Anthem on TV so viewers don't see any protesters? Vote using the link below. Results to be announced Friday.
Just so I have “progressive principles” straight: NFL players have an absolute right to express their political views in the workplace without any repercussions. But if a restaurant owner expresses his support for the troops, the flag and President Trump, it’s okay for leftists to make death threats that force him to close his business for safety reasons and put his employees out of work. Do I have that right? I was still trying to figure out why it’s outrageous and illegal for Christian bakers to refuse to make a same-sex wedding cake but fine for a gay coffee shop owner to curse and eject Christian customers, and now I have to try to understand this one, too. I suppose I could wait for the usual liberal media outlets to bless us with thousands of words’ worth of rationalizations and hair-splitting, but I’ll just give you the two-word Reader’s Digest version: “Blatant hypocrisy.”
Media critics keep attacking President Trump for not fulfilling all his campaign promises after nine whole months in office, and it’s obviously annoying him, to judge by yesterday’s tweets. After all, it’s not as if he has a Republican Congress to help him pass his agenda (oh wait…never mind!) Pundits also constantly compare him unfavorably to the perfect Barack Obama. Okay, then: let’s take a look back at Obama’s first year in office and see exactly what he managed to accomplish in his first 12 months. Warning: it’s not a very impressive list. Well, unless you count winning the Nobel Peace Prize, but that was sort of a gimme.
Hillary Clinton decried the lack of empathy in Europe and the US, as she accepted an honorary degree at a college in Wales while some students booed and jeered her and shouted that she was a “fascist.” Well, at least now she can empathize with every Republican who’s set foot on a campus in the past year or so.
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has a response for European leaders who are blasting President Trump for decertifying Obama’s Iran nuclear deal. In a nutshell: easy for them to say, when Iranian leaders are chanting “Death to America” and not “Death to Belgium.”
