TRUMBO (2015): DEMOCRAT HYPOCRISY IS HILARIOUS

democrat republican or awakeThe political intolerance of the shallow, uninformed and emotionally unstable fascists called Democrats knows no bounds. They unabashedly call for the personal and professional destruction of everyone who thinks differently or votes differently than they do while ignoring the fact that they are practicing their own – even more fanatical – form of McCarthyism. In fact, Democrats are such fascist filth that if someone doesn’t denounce the Democrats’ countless objects of hatred as fanatically as THEY do, they want the person destroyed. “Lack of sufficient zeal” I guess.  

This movie is further proof that American Liberals are the biggest hypocrites in history.

This movie is further proof that Democrats are the biggest hypocrites in history.

TRUMBO (2015) – How about “Are you now or have you ever been a racist or imperialist or Islamophobic or privileged?” Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog know how sick I am of the increasingly meaningless Democrats vs Republicans paradigm. It’s just that right now American Democrats are far more pompous, divisive and hubristic and in need of being cut down to size.

Case in point: the movie Trumbo. Only America’s Democrats could be so lacking in self-awareness that they would – in this age of non-stop harassment of dissenting opinions, of police, of Trump supporters, an age of Cancel Culture, the Political Correctness Police and SJW persecutors – yes, only the monumentally hypocritical trash called Democrats would be so lacking in self-awareness that they would trot out (for the millionth time) the story of Dalton Trumbo and some of the other figures who were black-listed during the Communist Witch Hunt of decades ago.

For the past few decades Left-Wing Archie Bunkers  have been the ones black-listing and inflicting draconian punishments on people who dare to hold different political opinions than they do.

We are still suffering under the “Racist” and “Privilege” and “White Supremacy” Witch Hunts that Democrats continue to pursue with the same sickeningly judgmental attitude and spurious statistics that Joe McCarthy was accused of. How many careers (and therefore lives) have we all seen ruined by the cold, merciless asses of the political left? Often over  simple remarks or organizations the victims belonged to or political contributions they made YEARS earlier. Plus DemoKKKrats accuse people of being racists/ white supremacists as a scare tactic the way accusations of being a Communist were used back then.

Anyone under 30 (maybe even 40) who watches Trumbo needs to focus on the OBVIOUS parallels to the way Democrats hound and persecute dissenters and any behavior they choose to interpret as “racism” or more generally as “hate.” When you watch right-wing zealots obsessively looking for “pernicious communism” and “secret communist messages” in Trumbo’s screenplays make a point of noting the similarities to the way Democrat zealots obsessively look for “white supremacy”, “xenophobia”, “imperialism,” “colonial narratives” and on and on through the entire list of their paranoid fixations.  

Democrats are monumental hypocrites who thrive on censoring dissenting ideas and black-listing people who hold those ideas even though they pretended to disapprove of censorship and black-listing when those tactics were used against them. Continue reading

BLATANT ATTEMPTS TO CENSOR THE JOE/ HUNTER BIDEN SCANDALS PROMPT GLENN GREENWALD TO RESIGN

glenn greenwaldGlenn Greenwald, one of the few remaining fair-minded Democrat voices in the media, resigned from The Intercept, the outlet he co-founded, because he has grown so disgusted with Democrat attempts to censor the explosive revelations about Joe Biden’s involvement in his son Hunter’s international scandals. (A witness and emails have indicated the grifted money is shared among the Bidens, with Joe as “the Big Man/ Big Guy” who gets some of the cut sent up to him like with Mafia “tribute” to their upper echelon.)

Greenwald resigned when The Intercept insisted on censoring all references to Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden in an article regarding Joe Biden’s involvement in his son Hunter’s unfolding scandals regarding influence peddling and bribes in the form of “no-show” jobs in other countries. For that article click HERE 

biden scandals censorshipFurther links below but first some excerpts regarding his resignation. And as you read remember this is how Democrat editors behave at ALL media outlets:

” … The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the candidate vehemently supported by all New-York-based Intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression.”

“The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony, raised critical questions about Biden’s conduct. Not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet I co-founded, these Intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right to publish this article with any other publication.”

biden scandals“… as a last-ditch attempt to avoid being censored, I encouraged them to air their disagreements with me by writing their own articles that critique my perspectives and letting readers decide who is right, the way any confident and healthy media outlet would. But modern media outlets do not air dissent; they quash it. So censorship of my article, rather than engagement with it, was the path these Biden-supporting editors chose.”

ADD THIS TO THE MANY, MANY MEDIA OUTLETS ALREADY EXPOSED FOR THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR.

As Andrea Widburg pointed out “What’s happening now is a form of fanatic groupthink that has abandoned any pretense of reporting.   Instead, the major media outlets, as well as less well known leftist outlets such as The Intercept … will do anything to protect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”

” … by closing ranks, the media outlets, the swamp rats in D.C., and the Tech Tyrants are ensuring that ordinary citizens are as uninformed as Pravda readers were at the height of the Soviet Union.” Continue reading

MARK “SKIPPY” ZUCKERBERG AND HIS ILK SETTING THEMSELVES UP AS GLOBAL CENSORS

 

corporate fascist Mark Zuckerberg

CORPORATE FASCIST MARK “SKIPPY” ZUCKERBERG

Corporate fascist Mark Zuckerberg – who hopes to become “a real boy” some day – has joined forces with his fellow techno-tyrants in assorted social media to impose their own narrow-minded notions of “decent speech” upon the rest of us.

Conveniently for the Democrats, Zuckerberg and his fellow bloated rich pigs agree to ban ANY opinions that Democrats say should count as “hate speech” and as “violations of community standards” and other such vague, meaningless phrases that totalitarians always use to justify censorship. Already an Asian, female Republican political candidate (Elizabeth Heng) has had her campaign ads censored. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

Facebook, Twitter, Google and others have been shown discriminating against all non-Democrats plenty of times over the years. As I often point out, I visit left-wing AND right-wing sites regularly to make sure I’m getting multiple viewpoints. Plus in real life I am close to people from all over the political spectrum and it has become impossible to ignore the way that social media target, harass and discriminate against ONLY the non-Democrats.

Freedom of expression amnesty international### Facebook and Twitter should be treated like public utilities and stopped from their war on the free exchange of ideas. Ever check out how the overwhelming majority of the one-percenters at those companies donate ONLY to the Democrats? They are also giving IN-KIND contributions to the Democrats and need to provide equal time. 

The modern-day versions of the disgusting old Robber Barons might well be the corporate fascists aka techno-fascists in assorted tech industries, not just regarding Silicon Valley but also  privacy-violating rich pigs at Facebook and elsewhere.

In fact, you could make the case that people like Mark “Skippy” Zuckerberg and his fellow corporate fascists are even worse since I don’t recall bloated rich pigs like E.H. Harriman or Cornelius Vanderbilt trying to police other people’s every thought, word and deed.

truth is the new hate speechThe invasive and ever-expanding tentacular reach of techno-fascists like Google and others makes these totalitarians a very credible threat to political freedom and freedom of expression.

In recent years outfits like Twitter, Facebook and others even made public noises about banning customers based on their conduct UNRELATED TO THOSE UTILITIES! Can you imagine the old, old Ma Bell monopoly cutting off people’s phone service because their operators caught those users discussing voting for political candidates disapproved of by Ma Bell’s upper echelons or expressing opinions frowned upon by Ma Bell?

Even worse, places like Google and others have made it firing offenses to be caught holding opinions at odds with the one percenters and bloated rich pigs who run those tech-related outfits.

Or put another way:   Continue reading

BRACKET OF SHAME: BATTLE OF THE FACULTY LOUNGE FASCISTS

Bracket of shameCourtesy of the Alliance Defending Freedom comes this hilarious bracket depicting some of America’s WORST colleges and universities when it comes to Freedom of Expression.

The intolerant fools of the “academic world” (LMFAO) tend to be either Left-Wing Archie Bunkers from the 1960s Generation OR people who had the misfortune of being “educated” (LMFAO) by Left-Wing Archie Bunkers from the 1960s Generation. FOR MORE ON THAT, CLICK HERE   

Free Speech 2There was a time when Liberals actively supported freedom of expression because they understood it was THE primary freedom from which all other freedoms flowed. The early figures from my own country’s history protected speech with the FIRST Amendment to the Constitution because they knew all too well that ideas that are considered taboo and offensive today might be considered essential truths by future generations.

The forever-hypocritical 1960s generation of American Liberals were all about Free Speech when THEIR ideas were the ones offending people. Once they considered themselves to be comfortably in the cultural, educational and political driver’s seat by the early 1990s they decided they wanted their own already outdated worldview enshrined in stone and presented as THE one true set of values.

The totalitarian asses of the 1960s can’t bear the fact that younger people might have opinions that offend THEM as much as their opinions offended their parents’ generation.  Continue reading

PHYLLIS CHESLER ON HOW CRITICISM OF ISLAM IS CENSORED

Phyllis Chesler

Dr Phyllis Chesler

Phyllis Chesler’s name will be familiar to regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog. She’s a member of the real-life League of Extraordinary Women who courageously tackle Islam’s misogyny, homophobia and overall intolerance.

Chesler discusses censorship of legitimate criticism of Muslim oppression HERE

And I’ll remind newcomers that I voraciously read BOTH left-wing AND right-wing sites, so narrow-minded people who hide from websites that challenge their preconceived notions take note. Continue reading

CAMILLE PAGLIA ON CENSORSHIP BY LEFT-WING ARCHIE BUNKERS

Muslim oppression 3Once again Camille Paglia shines in an examination of various subjects near and dear to my heart – censorship by the Political Correctness Police, the way the American Left crawls for Islam and how pretentious Liberal asses have destroyed the concept of intellectual inquiry and the free exchange of ideas in the academic world. She nicely chronicles the decline of American colleges and universities into their present state as the Democratic Party’s secular churches. 

An extra bit of fun is the way many of her remarks reinforce the remarks I made recently about the way that the worst of the faux “intellectuals” of the self-centered 1960s Liberals avoided failure in the real world by hiding in the prolonged adolescence of the academic world. Unfortunately they felt their job as “teachers” was to abuse their authority over their students by browbeating them into agreeing with their outdated (by FIVE DECADES now) political opinions.

RAGING CONTROVERSY OVER A RECENT POST

Mascot FOUR original pics

Balladeer’s Blog

Here at Balladeer’s Blog I criticize both American Liberals and American Conservatives. At this particular point in history the Liberals are so self-infatuated and are so pompous they are even MORE fun to ridicule than Christian Conservatives used to be. 

I’ve been getting bombarded with emails from Liberals expressing their usual outrage when other people don’t praise them the way they praise themselves constantly. The cause for this most recent storm was my examination of how Aristophanes’ comedy The Birds could be adapted to fit the present day. Does it deserve THIS much outrage? TO JUDGE FOR YOURSELF CLICK HERE

FREE SPEECH, LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES

Muslim oppression 3Free Speech has been under assault by both Liberals and Conservatives in recent decades. There was a time when Liberals actively supported freedom of expression because they understood it was THE primary freedom from which all other freedoms flowed. The early figures from my own country’s history protected speech with the FIRST Amendment to the Constitution because they knew all too well that ideas that are considered taboo and offensive today might be considered essential truths by future generations.

The forever-hypocritical 1960s generation of American Liberals were all about Free Speech when THEIR ideas were the ones offending people. Once they considered themselves to be comfortably in the cultural, educational and political driver’s seat by the early 1990s they decided they wanted their own already outdated worldview enshrined in stone and presented as THE one true set of values.

Free speech is a civil rightThey became the Political Correctness Police and anyone who offended their 1960s attitudes had to be silenced because – as they knew so well from their own experience – when controversial ideas are given the room to breathe they can often thrive. The totalitarian asses of the 1960s can’t bear the fact that younger people might have opinions that offend THEM as much as their opinions offended their parents’ generation. 

And it’s not just in America. All around the world similar assaults on Freedom of Expression are being made. If Muslims are offended they want the offensive material banned, if authoritarian regimes like the one in China are offended they want the offensive material banned, and on and on it goes. Considering that the more easily offended someone is the less intelligent they tend to be I find it amazing that Politically Correct censorship has thrived the way it has.

Free Speech 2Keep in mind Spinoza’s wonderful line “Every man should think what he likes and say what he thinks.” That still rings true because no matter what the hypersensitive fools who want to censor the rest of us find offensive NONE of them has the right to try to extinguish one single product of the human mind.
