Virginia Proves Border Issues Are Mainstream [VIDEO]

Published

on

Even with establishment candidates, border issues set Republicans apart from Democrats.

Why are border issues coming up in the Virginia election? Ed Gillespie is the Republican candidate for governor of Virginia. His Democrat opponent is Ralph Northam. Neither can be described as populist. Gillespie is not part of the Trump movement and Northam is not part of the Bernie wing of his party.

One would expect immigration enforcement to not come up during the campaign. But it has.

Donald Trump has made border issues inescapable and even centrist Republicans are paying attention.

John Daniel Davidson writes at The Federalist, “The Virginia Governor’s Race Has Exposed A Big Immigration Problem For Democrats.”

The odd thing about the race is that Republican candidate Ed Gillespie and Democratic candidate Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam don’t belong to the rising populist factions of their respective parties. Gillespie, a former Republican National Committee chair, is more or less a centrist Republican who beat a Trumpian candidate in the GOP primary. In the Democratic primary, Northam beat former Rep. Tom Perriello, a progressive who had the endorsements of progressive Democratic standard-bearers Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

So you might think the race wouldn’t be about supposedly “populist issues” like illegal immigration, sanctuary cities, and how many Central American MS-13 gang members live in Fairfax County. But it has been.

Lately, Gillespie has eased off talking about MS-13 and focused more on the economy, but by bringing illegal immigration into the race he’s managed to capitalize on what Trump exposed last year: Democrats, even centrist ones like Northam, don’t really believe in immigration enforcement anymore. To the extent that’s a message even a decidedly non-Trumpian Republican like Gillespie can leverage, it’s not just an immediate problem for Northam but a national problem for the Democratic Party.

Democrats might denounce it as racist, but the importance of the immigration question can’t be emphasized enough. Last week, Andrew Sullivan wrote, “The most powerful thing Trump said in the campaign, I’d argue, was: ‘If you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country.’ And the Democrats had no answer, something that millions of Americans immediately saw. They still formally favor enforcement of immigration laws, but rhetorically, they keep signaling the opposite.”

Georgia Store Requires $20 Refundable Shopping Deposit But Only For White Customers

A vintage clothing store in Georgia is at the center of a social media firestorm for a promotion that has been blasted as “racist” for waiving a $20 fee for non-white shoppers.

In a now-deleted Facebook post, Civvies in Savannah said it would require a $20 refundable deposit to book an appointment at the boutique, while people of color would be exempt from this new policy.

TDW:

A vintage-clothing store in Savannah, Georgia, has come under fire for a promotion they posted on Facebook in which they stated they would require white customers to pay a $20 refundable deposit to book an appointment to browse the store while waiving the fee for people of color.

Civvies on Broughton wrote, “As a mostly white staff with white ownership, we do not feel comfortable upholding a digital and financial barrier which could prevent BIPOC from shopping at our store at this time on top of the limitations already made by online booking.”

he store later apologized on Facebook.

“The store, which sells ‘new and recycled’ clothing, told potential white patrons that they could decline to pay the deposit on the booking form and a manager would reach out to discuss other options. Civvies went on to say, however, that they would not accept appointments with any white customers who are simply refusing to pay the fee because they believe it’s ‘unethical,’” The Daily Mail reported.

The manager just committed retail suicide. I’d be surprised if the store made it till the end of this year. Treat everyone equally. That is what this country and the American flag ultimately stands for.

University Prosecute Kid for Having Donald Trump as Video Call Background Image

Stockton University attempted to throw a kid out of school just because he had a picture of Donald Trump as his Zoom call background image.

Published

on

Another fascist American university has reared its anti-American head, this time in New Jersey where Stockton University attempted to throw a kid out of school just because he had a picture of Donald Trump as his Zoom call background image.

Stockton has charged the student with disruptive behavior, discrimination, harassment, creating a “hostile environment,” causing “harm” and cyberbullying. All that just because he had a picture of Trump as his Zoom background during his July 1 on-line class.

The student, Robert Dailyda, was attacked solely for having the image of Trump, not because his actual behavior was “threatening” to anyone. Indeed, the school admits that when some leftist snowflakes complained about his Trump photo, Dailyda’s replies were in no way “threatening.” Still, the photo was all the school needed to say he was, in fact, “threatening” people.

This is the world the left is creating. An America where you can be branded a “threat” and be denied an education merely because you had a photo of the president of the United States on your computer.

Per College Fix:

FIRE’s summary of the factual background says there were “no disruptions to the class or other feedback about Dailyda’s choice of background during the class” other than a private chat another classmate sent him. Several classmates piled on Dailyda for his Trump background in a post-class group chat, but the university admitted that this conversation was not “threatening” to anyone and that Dailayda exited the chat to “avoid continued conflict.”

The student wrote a Facebook post after the pile-on, saying he was “done with the leftist agenda of BLM and the white self haters,” including his classmates:

“I’m not backing down. If we can’t get past this, ok, I’m ready to fight to the death for our county and against those that want to take it down. I believe there are also many like me,” the student said

Obscenely, the University Police pounded on his door and told him he was being accused of the grave crime:

University police called Dailyda to report that he had been accused of making “threatening statements.” A week later he met with Director Amy Jones (left) and Assistant Director Stacey Rose (right) of the Care and Community Standards Office, who told him classmates were offended by his behavior: “They asked him to explain his political views, Zoom background, and Facebook post.”

Again, folks, this was because of a SINGLE photo of Trump.

College Fix added:

Six days later he was charged with six violations of the Campus Conduct Code. (Two of the alleged violations have rather high thresholds to clear: disruptive behavior requires “obstruction or substantial disruption of University activities or operations,” and hostile environment uses a four-prong test, all of which must be satisfied: “Severe, pervasive, persistent, and objectively offensive conduct.” Another multi-prong charge, discrimination, uses “and/or” so that any one prong counts as a violation.)

The simple truth is, this university is thoroughly un-American and should have all its federal and state funding removed.

Period.

119 Confederate Statues Have Been Destroyed as Liberals Move to Erase U.S. History

The anti-American left has succeeded in destroying 119 Confederate statues across the United States since the end of May, a report finds.

The anti-American left has succeeded in destroying 119 Confederate statues across the United States since the end of May, a report finds.

The domestic terror outfit, Black Lives Matter, has surged across the country causing like-minded city councils and left-wing-infested states to begin erasing U.S. history en masse. While the effort to whitewash history picked up speed since May with the police-involved death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, the move to dump statues has been going on at least since 2017.

According to a report at the Washington Times, 55 Confederate monuments were destroyed in 2017. Then, in 2018, another 34 were removed. In 2019 that number hit 21. But this year, 119 were eliminated.

“The removal of these Confederate symbols coincides with years of growth in support of racial justice and the BLM movement,” said Brian Ross, the senior data analyst for public records service, BeenVerified, the group that amassed the evidence.

The service also noted that 1,650 Confederate monuments still remain on display in public view.

South Carolina, Mississippi, Georgia and Alabama have removed the fewest such monuments. California and Maryland removed the most.

“The country seems to have reached a tipping point of self-examination, and one of the most visible symbols of the history of inequality and injustice against Black Americans are the Confederate monuments dotting the cities, towns and municipalities throughout the United States,” Ross added.

BeenVerified did not add statues to Christopher Columbus, though many of those have also been removed all across the country.

The paper also noted that most Americans are opposed to removing the statues.

“A majority of voters, 58%, in a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released in June said the memorials should stay. Days earlier, though, another poll by Quinnipiac University showed that a majority, 52%, wanted to see them taken down from public spaces,” the Times wrote.

DC Comics Celebrates New ‘Wonder Woman’ Comic by… Making Her Morbidly Obese?

In a bid to ingratiate themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement, DC Comics has re-imagined Wonder Woman as a morbidly obese.

Published

on

In a bid to ingratiate themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement, DC Comics has re-imagined Wonder Woman as a morbidly obese, vaguely African American character in the cover art for its newest Wonder Woman 1984 comic book series.

The new series is supposed to coincide with Gal Gadot’s upcoming second movie outing as the titular character in, Wonder Woman 1984.

The nation’s second biggest comics company recently teamed up with Rooster Teeth comics and illustrator Robin Eisenberg, who drew one of the variant covers for the new comic book series. And DC said there’s only one word to describe it: “rad.”

The art depicts Wonder Woman as an overweight, vaguely black-looking woman in a pair of ripped mom jeans and a halter top with the Wonder Woman logo across it.

Maybe “gross” would be a better word.

Take a look:

What in the holy Amazon is that?

Wonder Woman is supposed to be an Amazon warrior who serves as a paragon of strength, beauty, virtue, and power. Not a 300-pound, fast-food addict!

The art received fanfare from many left-wingers, granted, but not everyone thought the comic cover portrayed the ideal Wonder Woman:

Is this morbidly obese slob what DC is encouraging young girls to aspire to emulate?

Antifa Tries To Stop Car, Attacks It, Then Follows Driver Home

The silent majority is officially PISSED OFF!!! Play stupid games win stupid prizes!!!!

Antifa pajama boy dropped his motorcycle in front of a pickup truck thinking it would stop the driver from escaping the mob. The driver wasn’t having any of it and proceeded to melt the motorcycle into a metallic sheen on the road.

I’m surprised the DA hasn’t charged the driver with theft of the motorcycle. I want to know what the city officials out there have to gain by sucking up to these terrorists? Most of them likely don’t vote, they are of no benefit to them. Anyone who stops you from traveling on a public roadway should be considered to be a threat to your safety and you should be able to take any defensive measure needed to remove yourself from the situation.

Oprah Says That ‘Whiteness’ Gives You An Advantage In America’s ‘Caste System’

Oprah Says That ‘Whiteness’ Gives You An Advantage In America’s ‘Caste System’

In her new Apple TV+ series, Oprah Winfrey says being White ‘gives you an advantage no matter what.’

She says America has a “caste system” based on race and that white people are at the top: “There are white people who are not as powerful as the system of white people—the caste system that’s been put in place—but they still, no matter where they are on the rung, or the ladder of success, they still have their whiteness.”

Winfrey promoted the book Caste for her Book Club. It’s about racism and the “unspoken caste system that has shaped America.” She says that it’s full of “a-ha! moments.”

Fox News:

Oprah Winfrey discussed the advantages White Americans have over non-White communities in terms of reaching success on her new Apple TV+ series.

The media mogul had an in-depth discussion about climbing the ladder in corporate America on her new show “The Oprah Conversation.” Winfrey’s first episode featured an interview with former NFL player Emmanuel Acho. The episode’s title, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1” is based on the former linebacker’s YouTube series and upcoming book of the same name.

Acho begins the episode with a statement to viewers, explaining that he believes in order for White people to understand systemic racism, it starts with having an understanding of the “full level of pain” Black citizens experience.

“I fervently believe that if the White person is your problem, only the White person can be your solution,” Acho said on-camera via The Washington Times. More

Is anyone else tired of being called a racist for no good reason? I’m white and I never had the breaks you’ve had Oprah. But I’ve worked hard and I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished. I refuse to apologize to you or anyone else for the life I alone have created.

She has the audacity to complain about whiteness while she indulges herself in luxury and an unprecedented quality of life. She’s an absolute ungrateful, blind, liberal who talks big but won’t act on her racist comments. What a hypocrite.
