a Knitting website has decided to ban open support for Donald Trump;
The ban includes “support in the form of forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content.” The company assures users that if they get booted from the site for supporting Trump, “we will make sure that you have access to your data.” How good of them.
The reason for the ban, according to Ravelry, is that “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy.”
The word “inclusive,” it would seem, has been redefined in true leftist Orwellian fashion to mean “excluding half the country.” The 44.6 percent of Americans who approve of Trump are all — every last one — white supremacists, according to Ravelry. Got that, America? If you support Trump, you’re a vile racist and you’d better keep your mouth shut — if you know what’s good for you.
I’m sure declaring half of the US electorate a bunch of white supremacists is really going to help their business model, but I’m sure it’s going to energize Trump voters who don’t like being silenced.
Of course some folks are trying to do this at least a little on the sly.
Project Veritas has released a new report on Google which includes undercover video of a Senior Google Executive, leaked documents, and testimony from a Google insider. The report appears to show Google’s plans to affect the outcome of the 2020 elections and “prevent” the next “Trump situation.”
The report includes undercover footage of longtime Google employee and Head of Responsible Innovation, Jen Gennai saying:
“Elizabeth Warren is saying we should break up Google. And like, I love her but she’s very misguided, like that will not make it better it will make it worse, because all these smaller companies who don’t have the same resources that we do will be charged with preventing the next Trump situation, it’s like a small company cannot do that.”
Youtube has already suppressed the video, these guys aren’t even pretending anymore.
I must admit as a friend of Robert Stacy McCain this made me smile:
as Brad Glasgow explains in a remarkable YouTube video, Sarkeesian’s non-profit is now essentially bankrupt, having begun the year with a balance of barely $30,000 and laying off its employees:
Shortly after Sarkeesian went to twitter Stacy was banned, he closes thus:
Despite wasting $1.6 million, Sarkeesian “hasn’t even begun to solve the problem,” and if you disagree with her, that’s because you don’t “care about the humanity of people.” Is anyone really surprised that sane people don’t want to support this fanatical ideologue?
Sooner or later the left’s useful idiots are no longer useful and thus not worth financing.
One of the most famous scenes in movies is where Don Corleone rebukes the undertaker asking for the death of those who harmed his daughter with the words: “That’s not justice your daughter is still alive.” I thought of this when I read this story:
U.S. military cyber forces launched a strike against Iranian military computer systems on Thursday as President Donald Trump backed away from plans for a more conventional military strike in response to Iran’s downing of a U.S. surveillance drone, U.S. officials said Saturday.
Two officials told The Associated Press that the strikes were conducted with approval from Trump. A third official confirmed the broad outlines of the strike. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the operation.
The cyberattacks — a contingency plan developed over weeks amid escalating tensions — disabled Iranian computer systems that controlled its rocket and missile launchers, the officials said. Two of the officials said the attacks, which specifically targeted Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps computer system, were provided as options after Iranian forces blew up two oil tankers earlier this month.
It would have been so easy to hit Iran militarily, taken out a ship or two, destroy a few oil rigs over taking out our drone. Given the fact that Iran has been at war with us for decades any such attack would be more than justified, but the president decided that he would not spill blood for an attack on an unmanned drone.
Donald Trump has advanced the pro-life cause in many ways but this illustrated pro-life better than any other. It’s the most impressive thing I’ve seen from him as president.
