Tlaib makes a bigoted statement and gets a pass, Blackhawks announcer gets pilloried for innocent remark

Blogger on the left, as broadcast on WGN-TV Chicago during a Blackhawks game in Nashville in 2018

By John Ruberry

Oh, the things the left gets away with…

Unless you are consumer of conservative media, or news sources from Detroit–I’m both of those things—you probably missed a piece of awful offal from US Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), a member of “the Squad.”

If you live in the Chicago area, as I do, you probably heard about the “racially insensitive” comments made by longtime Chicago Blackhawks announcer Pat Foley during a preseason game against a German team.

Tlaib, the first Palestinian-American woman elected to Congress, was touring Detroit’s Real Time Crime center, which utilizes facial recognition technology to identify criminal suspects. Tlaib has her issues with facial recognition forensics, She Tweeted in August, “@detroitpolice You should probably rethink this whole facial recognition bulls**t.”

In a tour last Tuesday of the center with Detroit’s police chief, James Craig, one that the Detroit News described as “tense,” the freshman congresswoman told Craig that only blacks should be employed as facial recognition analysists at the center. Yep. She said that. Her actual comments were, “Analysts need to be African Americans, not people that are not. I think non-African Americans think African Americans all look the same.”

Wow.

Craig, who is black, took the high ground by replying, “I trust people who are trained, regardless of race; regardless of gender. It’s about the training.”

Of course it is.

Craig later condemned Tlaib’s remarks. “If I had made a similar comment people would be outraged,” he told Detroit’s ABC affiliate, “they would be calling for my resignation.”

CNN.com covered the Tlaib facial recognition comments, as did Fox News, but the national media otherwise ignored her obnoxious remarks, although a Washington Post technology writer covered some practical issues with facial recognition in response to what she said.

In short, Tlaib got a pass because she is woke. She’s also a Democratic Socialist.

Not so Pat Foley, the television voice of the Chicago Blackhawks. I don’t know Foley’s politics. Perhaps he’s apolitical. But Foley, who is white, is not woke. He has not spoken of the glories of Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. He does not make large contributions to left-wing organizations. He has not apologized for his “white privilege.”

Oh, what did Foley say that got the left so upset? During that ‘Hawks preseason game against Eisbären Berlin, while opposing forward Austin Ortega handled the puck, Foley said, “Ortega, who sounds like he ought to be a shortstop.”

Yep, that’s it. A Chicago Tribune writer deemed Foley’s quip “racially insensitive.” The Blackhawks, in their apology stopped short of that, calling what he said only “insensitive.” Sports Illustrated covered the kerfuffle.

The Blackhawks in that statement noted that Foley, a recipient of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award by the Hockey Hall of Fame, apologized to the Berlin team.

What appears to have ignited the controversy was a Tweet from an Hispanic hockey fan, Ghostchant, who distorted Foley’s words. “‘Ortega, sounds like he should be a shortstop’ instead of hockey.” Yep, “instead of hockey.”

But there is something else. Foley didn’t say “instead of hockey.” The Tweeter, who, if he has a sense of honor would place himself into his personal penalty box for a spell, added those words.

Here’s the entire Tweet along that “insensitive” comment from Foley.

In this split-second-glance-at-my-smartphone world, it’s easy to see why Ghostchant’s dishonest Tweet went viral. Many people look, get outraged, then re-Tweet or post on Facebook, without digging into the veracity of information on that puny screen, or, as I suspect in this instance, bothering to play the accompanying video clip.

Foley’s reputation has taken an undeserved dirty hit.

Tlaib, on the other hand, just keeps going.

What happened to Foley reminds me of a comment made by Nixon White House thug, Charles Colson, who later redeemed himself post-prison. “Anyone who opposes us, we’ll destroy,” he said, “as a matter of fact, anyone who doesn’t support us, we’ll destroy.”

That’s today’s left. Destroy first. Ask questions later. If at all.

There’s a lesson here. If you are a prominent person, unless you are deemed woke, you cannot comment on race or ethnicity, according to the rules of the high priests of the left.

Animal Farm is so very relevant today

I just finished rereading Animal Farm, the first time in over a couple of decades. All the time I was reading this great work I was continuously surprised by parallels between the fictional world created by George Orwell more than 70 years ago and conditions today in so many countries. There are also warning signs that these conditions could be created here. 

Animal Farm was written as a warning against the totalitarianism that had spread through many nations in the 1930s and 1940s.  Unfortunately so many have ignored the warnings and so many are keen to implement the policies that have time and again led to the totalitarianism Orwell warned against.

This quote from the pig Old Major in Chapter 1 is so reminiscent of the rhetoric used by Karl Marx and other socialists who sought to overthrow capitalism.  The rhetoric is eerily similar to that used by Bernie Sanders,  Elizabeth Warren, and the rest of the Democratic presidential candidates.

Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself. Our labour tills the soil, our dung fertilises it, and yet there is not one of us that owns more than his bare skin.

Despite the promises of a more equal and just society made before, during, and after the revolutions that overthrow democratically elected free market societies, a cabal of elites always end up taking over and demanding special treatment, at the expense of the majority.  This is captured in this quote in Chapter 3 by Squealer, who is responding to complaints about the ruling pigs alone getting all of the milk and apples while everyone else is nearly starving..

“Comrades!” he cried. “You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for YOUR sake that we drink that milk and eat those apples.

This point is reiterated in Chapter 5

Do not imagine, comrades, that leadership is a pleasure. On the contrary, it is a deep and heavy responsibility. No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?

In a socialist nation laws and Constitutions are changed at a whim. Democrats have done that quite often here such as this notion of our Constitution being a living document. Here is a quote from Chapter 6.

Afterwards Squealer made a round of the farm and set the animals’ minds at rest. He assured them that the resolution against engaging in trade and using money had never been passed, or even suggested. It was pure imagination, probably traceable in the beginning to lies circulated by Snowball. A few animals still felt faintly doubtful, but Squealer asked them shrewdly, “Are you certain that this is not something that you have dreamed, comrades? Have you any record of such a resolution? Is it written down anywhere?” And since it was certainly true that nothing of the kind existed in writing, the animals were satisfied that they had been mistaken.

Straw men are constantly used by leftists regimes to justify abuses.  This took place in Chapter 7.

Whenever anything went wrong it became usual to attribute it to Snowball. If a window was broken or a drain was blocked up, someone was certain to say that Snowball had come in the night and done it, and when the key of the store-shed was lost, the whole farm was convinced that Snowball had thrown it down the well. Curiously enough, they went on believing this even after the mislaid key was found under a sack of meal.

The real turning point of the novel is when nine puppies are taken from their parents and educated by the ruling elite.  These dogs were turned into a secret police and became the most ardent supporters of the ruling elite.   This has taken place over and over again in totalitarian nations and this is the type brainwashing of the youth that has been happening here on college campuses for decades and is now taking place in grade and high schools.  The dogs committed atrocities that are chronicled in the next two quotes, also from Chapter 7.  All those killed were innocent but that did not stop the indoctrinated dogs.

And so the tale of confessions and executions went on, until there was a pile of corpses lying before Napoleon’s feet and the air was heavy with the smell of blood, which had been unknown there since the expulsion of Jones.

When it was all over, the remaining animals, except for the pigs and dogs, crept away in a body. They were shaken and miserable. They did not know which was more shocking–the treachery of the animals who had leagued themselves with Snowball, or the cruel retribution they had just witnessed. In the old days there had often been scenes of bloodshed equally terrible, but it seemed to all of them that it was far worse now that it was happening among themselves. Since Jones had left the farm, until today, no animal had killed another animal.

Purges such as this are always the end result when the policies advocated by Warren and Sanders are implemented. It is just a matter of time.

This quote from Chapter 8 is a dire warning against the notion of a living Constitution.

A few days later, when the terror caused by the executions had died down, some of the animals remembered–or thought they remembered–that the Sixth Commandment decreed “No animal shall kill any other animal.” And though no one cared to mention it in the hearing of the pigs or the dogs, it was felt that the killings which had taken place did not square with this. Clover asked Benjamin to read her the Sixth Commandment, and when Benjamin, as usual, said that he refused to meddle in such matters, she fetched Muriel. Muriel read the Commandment for her. It ran: “No animal shall kill any other animal WITHOUT CAUSE.” Somehow or other, the last two words had slipped out of the animals’ memory. But they saw now that the Commandment had not been violated; for clearly there was good reason for killing the traitors who had leagued themselves with Snowball.

All quotes are copied from the Animal Farm Wikiquote page because I am a lousy typist.

The Problem if a NFL team signs Kaepernick that nobody wants to talk about

There has been a rash of injuries in the NFL at QB this season, which is slightly surprising as the rules protecting that position have increased over the years, but no matter the oddity of it you are seeing a lot of new faces behind center early because of it.

This has led to some speculation that Colin (Castro is great police are evil) Kaepernick might find himself approached by a team for a backup position or maybe even more.

Now there are some advantages to such a signing, he is an experienced QB, he has played in a Superbowl and has now had several years of not being hit by 300 pound masses of muscle which can do wonders for the body’s healing process, however I suspect that he is doing much better financially as a professional martyr, which doesn’t involve 300 pound masses of muscle hitting you so I suspect that even if a team did come calling he would say no.

But let’s, for the sake of argument say that if a team in need, perhaps one that’s doing well but has already lost a QB loses another and convinces him to sign, say by appealing to his pride and he decides to go on the field, then things get complicated, now with the outraged fans, BUT WITH THE PLAYERS.

Now suddenly Colin Kaepernick is behind center and the whole, black lives matter, SJW network has everything riding on his success. If you are a black player on defense, WHAT DO YOU DO?

Remember if you hit this guy, or sack this guy or lead to this guy’s failure, do YOU become the target of SJW wrath? Are you considered a “race traitor?” are you going to be blamed because Kaepernick didn’t make it. Were you REALLY against him all the time? If you defend that pass as a black LB or Corner or Safety are you trying to let the bad guys win? And don’t get me started if a white defender sacks him. Were you out to get him because you’re gulp a TRUMP supporter? Did you hit him hard because you hate him?

It’s just as bad on offence. Say you are a white player either on the offensive line and somebody beats you on a play and gets to Kaepernick, are YOU going to be targeted by the SJW crowd, are people going to claim that you let these guys through just because you wanted to let Kaepernick get hurt? Are they going to say the same any time a white receiver drops a pass he throws or misses a block? Is your entire performance going to be about race. And it’s just as bad for a Black player on offense, will every dropped pass, hole you fail to rush through or block you fail to make be a betrayal of the cause?

People think that the fan reaction is why Kaepernick will never get on the field and early on that might have been true, but with the passage of time and the increase in crazy by the left in general the implication of being on the football field with Kaepernick have become so dire for players, that even though there might actually be sound reasons why a team might consider him for their roster I suspect many players of are quite content to do without him, even if they dare not say so.

Update: I didn’t mention the possibility of a defensive player lying down deciding he’s not going to make that play, or knock away that pass either because he’s down for the cause or because he’s afraid of being called racist.

Saudi Oil Yawn, Hate Crime Shortage Continues, Beto’s actual target, Sperm Donor Lottery and the right answer from Steve Roberts under the Fedora

Are you worried about a spike in oil prices because of the attack on the Saudi oil fields? Right Wing Granny isn’t:

I have no idea what impact this will have on world oil prices. I do know that Saudi Arabia will work to repair the damage as soon as possible. I have no doubt that Iran is violating the sanctions on its oil exports, so if the price of oil rises significantly, Iran may be able to pull itself out of its current economic difficulties and calm its population. America will continue to prosper as oil prices rise because we are now a net exporter of oil rather than a net importer. Because of the policies of President Trump, we are in a very different situation than we were during the oil crisis of the 1970’s.

The real irony of course is that if oil prices DO go up it makes other fracking locations viable that can be re-opened. Of course if Hillary and the Democrats had been elected this wouldn’t be an issue and we would now be in crisis

Iran Russia and China have already lost, their best chance to win the next one is for Trump to lose re-election


Those rules of economics apply to hate crimes too, or put simply if the supply of hate crimes is not sufficient to keep up with demand, then more must be produced artificially:

A former NFL player has been accused of trashing a restaurant and an ice cream shop he owned near Atlanta to make it look like a hate crime.
Gwinett County police say they found the n-word, “monkey,” “MAGA” and 
swastikas scrawled on the walls and booths of the two businesses, Create & Bake Pizza and Coughman’s Creamery in Lawrenceville.

Edawn Coughman, 31, of Buford, was arrested Thursday on charges of false reporting a burglary, insurance fraud and concealing a license plate before being bonded out of jail, police said.

Is this an aspiring Kaepernick or just an insurance fraud? Either way it just goes to show that making the NFL and the good paydays that come with it doesn’t guarantee you’re set for life.


There’s an old joke about a guy losing his keys and searching under a lamp a block away because he can see better there. Fisherville Mike is reminding me of it:

If you’re worried about mass shootings but unwilling to go door to door to look for assault rifles, it’s inevitable that virtually all of the people whom you end up disarming are people whom you didn’t need to worry about in the first place.

That of course assume’s that the goal is to stop mass shootings rather than disarm the people who might be willing to take arms against an imposed tyranny.

That’s the actual goal and to Beto & company it’s a feature not a bug.


Stacy McCain notes the irony of this case of a lesbian mom suing over a sperm bank donor not being what he claimed to be.

Danielle Rizzo doesn’t believe in any of that “Thou shalt not” stuff. No, she believes in Science! Her children didn’t need a father. All she and her lesbian “partner” needed was a sperm donor, and Science would take care of the rest. What could possibly go wrong? Only everything, it turns out, so that “her relationship collapsed” and now she and her two autistic sons are on Medicaid, living in her parents’ basement.
This story was brought to my attention by 
Rational Male author Rollo Tomassi, who has a saying: “Hypergamy doesn’t care.” “Hypergamy prompts women to seek out ‘winners’, they don’t care how the man won, just that he won,” as Rollo has observed, and we see how this applies even with lesbians choosing sperm donors on the basis of online profiles. Being tall, claiming to have a master’s degree and a professional career — H898 seemed like a “winner,” and it never occurred to Danielle Rizzo to wonder about H898’s motives for becoming a sperm donor.

Maybe the church’s teaching on this stuff aren’t so foolish after all, but let’s also remember that the teaching of the church is that these two boys are children of God whose value in the eyes of God is not dependent on the origins of their birth.


There is a lot of hoopla about the death of Cokie Roberts who came from a very Democrat family out of Louisiana to become a fixture on television news, but amid all the tributes going out there is a line from her husband that is some of the best advice you’ll ever hear:

Marrying the right person is the single most important decision you’ll ever make in your life. Everything else is secondary.

That’s advice that Danielle Rizzo could have used

How dare God leave us when we asked him to

Today is the feast of the Transfiguration

http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/15019a.htm

and as such it is an excellent time to answer a question I’ve been hearing concerning the Dayton and El Paso shootings, particularly from the non-religious: “Were was God when this was going on?”

The short answer is: ” Where you expect him to be?”

For nearly sixty year our media, political, social, educational and cultural so called “betters” have done all they could to drive God out of the public square, out of the classroom, out of our political discourse, out of our social discourse, out of every single cultural aspect of society. And being a loving God rather than an oppressor instead of defying that demand respected the free will of these folk and did so allowing folks who didn’t want him there to do the best they could without him.

That best isn’t very good. Particularly when the ancient enemy has been ready to step into the gap left by his departure.

There is however good news.

There are plenty of people who weren’t all that anxious for God to go away and he has remained with such people willing to give aid and comfort to those who ask. That’s good, but even better is that just like in the Transfiguration where the glory of Christ was made plain to Peter James and John, God is willing to transform us and help us transform our society, if we want to do so.

But it’s our choice, God will not compel us, he will allow us to face the world as it is, human nature as it is if we so choose.

May we as a nation learn from our errors and choose wisely.

Some Mass Shooting Thoughts Under the Fedora

I’m not a big fan of publishing manifesto of killers. The last thing a society that pushes fame and notoriety above all needs to do is give people desperate to feel important a platform. Alas in an instant information age where the value of clicks overwhelm all else, there is zero chance that such sober restraint would take place.

———————————-

As said manifesto has been put out there two things jumped out at me right away. The first was the declaration that the we are destroying the world environmentally. For this fellow’s entire life he has been sold a bill of goods that the world had five, ten fifteen, 25 years left before we’re all doomed. There’s nothing like convincing people they have no future and nothing to lose to get them to do something horribly stupid and/or horribly wrong.

———————————

the 2nd thing of note to me was his conscious choice of a target where people were unarmed and his suggestion of others to do the same. Gun free zone like “drug free zones” are only as free of such things as those willing to follow rules make them and the people most willing to follow rules are not the ones people need protection from. Those who keep insisting on maintaining “gun free zones” are simply managing game preserves for killers.

—————————————

We don’t have a lot of details on the 2nd shooting spree in Ohio other than it was fortunate that police were in the area and thus were able to respond in about a minute, yet there were still multiple fatalities and over a dozen wounded. Now I don’t blame the police they can only do what they can when they get there and they did their job well. If anything illustrates the need for people to be able to carry it’s this situation. Police can only react when they get there, people already on the scene can react at once.

————————————-

Finally I want people ( other than potential Democrat candidates for office who I selfishly encourage to keep spouting nonsense about gun and bullet control throughout the election season ) who are arguing for more Gun control to consider something. Until the campaign against so called “Saturday night specials” guns were ubiquitous everywhere, high schools had gun clubs and shooting teams. Being armed was very common, young people had guns, old people had guns in fact my mother regularly carried a gun.

Yet it is only in recent memory that we have seen these kind of mass shootings on a regular basis, particularly from young people. People who as Stacy McCain put it:

“are succumbing to despair and rage, believing their lives are worthless, without meaning or purpose. Seeing no hope for their own future as individuals, they project their nihilistic sense of doom onto society at large, and resort to a sick “blaze of glory” fantasy”

Stacy McCain Two Mass Shootings in 14 hours. Thoughts on the Gamification of Terror

So that raises a rather obvious question:

If GUNS are the problem, why were we not seeing shootings like this regularly in my youth? What is the cultural difference a cultural difference which has taken two generations to completely work it’s way through society through film, TV and our schools that has so changed the population that might cause our youth to have such a callous attitude toward the value of life, not only their own but of others?

Mayim Bialik unintentionally explains the price women have paid for Feminism.

There are a lot of great things about the latest offering from Mayim Bialik at her youtube channel titled: I’m A Stay-At-Home Mom…Again!

It’s full of great insights, the details of basic life, the tasks of a mother of young sons, the repetitiveness and ordinariness of mother’s average day, but it’s the realization of what she has changed in her relationship with her two sons in the ten years that she was not home that really struck a chord with me.

Before I was Amy Farah Fowler, our relationship was like “Momma help me survive!” and I was like “OK I will, that’s what I live for.” and it’s not like that anymore. So what is life after the big bang theory, it’s terrifying because I worry that I’ve missed the most tender time of their lives. I’ve missed that transition from being everything to whatever I find that I am now.

Now don’t get me wrong, she talks about the value of the current relationship and how the job she has now as a stay at home mom is “…the most secure job in the universe.” But Think about what she said there.

For decades I have heard Feminism decry the culture of nurture that a stay at home mom provided, how it was holding women back and that it wasn’t as fulfilling as a career while not recognizing what that job brought or if spending 40 hours in a warehouse away from their young kids is more fulfilling that watching them grow up.

Even more important those who have sold and still sell feminism didn’t take into account the costs of the sexual “empowerment” that they pitched. The vast majority of women don’t have the education of Bialik nor the financial independence that was provided by nearly a decade on the most popular comedy in the nation that allows her to function as a single divorced mother at home without worrying about how the bills are going to be paid.

Many of those women are stuck between the reality of proving for a child without the support of a man or finding themselves alone never having that knowledge of being the most important person in the world to someone during their lifetime.

The joys she was talking about were once known to society having been learned over centuries of experience, but to the post sixties generation that threw them away in the certain belief that they knew better than those to came before them and the generations of today who have had to live in the world that 60’s generation crated Ms. Bialik’s video is a revelation.

May they take this newfound knowledge and apply it wisely.

Kim Davis Vs the Modern Left, Compare and Contrast

Kim Davis on being released from jail & a leftist pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court

As I’ve been watching the left continue its violent push to make the rest of us comply with their demands and the craziness of their Kavanaugh stuff to the point where we actually had a Democrat editor justifying the shooting of Steve Scalise as the natural consequence of his votes.

Seeing all this I couldn’t help but think of the contrast between their actions and those of Kim Davis.

For those of you who have forgotten Kim Davis is the former Democrat who refused to issue gay marriage licences with her name on them in Kentucky when the Supreme Court imposed Gay Marriage overriding the laws of her state and others.

She sought compromise, her opponents would have none of it:

Davis didn’t seek publicity, those who choose to force her hand did, as marriage licences were available just a few miles away. Even as the country’s media and elites demonized her and pundit after pundit attacked her she went to court to defend her position citing her religious beliefs seeking a compromise that would allow her to function without her name being on marriage certificates.

She was threatened with jail, and accepted it:

On Thursday the judge in the case gave her one last chance to fold her card, she declined saying it was a heaven or hell issue to her. So the judge had her jailed, meanwhile four of her five deputies agreed to issue the licences to gay couples as he commanded and on Friday began doing so.

And did so without anger or hate

Kim Davis has gone to jail without fear, without complaint. She did not scream defiant curses, she did not call for violence in her name. Her only worry was disobedience to the Lord.

And when the courts decided that she should be freed how did she react

Kim’s Davis’ entire speech was about God and serving him and thanks and love for her supporters.

No critique of the judge, no anger over her imprisonment, no fancy words about the political irony of a bunch of Republicans defending an elected democrat. No talk about the likelihood of her being re-imprisoned. Everything completely consistent with the dignity of the stand she took for the sake of her soul and others.

And when offered muscle to protect her from all those who were threatening her in person and online she declined:

Given her situation the offer of armed protection must have been attractive, she has been vilified and hated not only by the left for her principled stand but by some on the right objecting to her civil disobedience on law and order grounds. How easy would it have been for her to accept this offer of protection. How comforting might it have been to know people considered her so important they were willing to fight for her. How tempting.

I’m pleased to say she did not give into this temptation:

Oath Keepers has been contacted by Kim Davis’ legal team at Liberty Counsel, and they have, on her behalf, declined our offer of assistance in protecting her from a possible repeat incarceration by Federal District Court judge David Bunning. We will, of course, respect her wishes, and are hereby issuing a stand-down for our security volunteers who were planning on deploying to Morehead, Kentucky on Monday.

She didn’t even fire or critique her deputies who issued the licences that she would not:

Now the last thing the left could hope for was that she would fire her deputies, allowing them to attack her for demanding a conscience exception while not allowing her subordinates to do the same.

Alas poor leftists, that was not to be:

Before starting her workday, Davis appeared defiant, saying she will not issue any marriage licenses that go against her religious beliefs. But she left the door open for her deputies to continue giving out marriage licenses to same-sex couples as long as those documents do not have Davis’ name or title on them.

The marriage license that the couple received said “pursuant to federal court order” on it, and instead of listing Davis’ name and Rowan County, it says city of Morehead, the county seat.

Her willingness to stand without violent confrontation, taking the penalties prescribed by law and not attack those who went after her had a salutary result at the ballot box:

Alas for our liberal friends the voters of Kentucky clearly knew which side they were on too and it wasn’t close

Bevin was able to defy pundits, political insiders and polling — including one released by his own campaign in October that showed him losing — and emerge a winner Tuesday night.

In the end, it wasn’t even close. Bevin won 107 of the state’s 120 counties on his way to a nine-point victory.

Who made the compromise she sought a legal reality

“To ensure that the sincerely held religious beliefs of all Kentuckians are honored, I took action to revise the clerk marriage license form,” Bevin said in a statement.

Davis’s team was delighted:

“This is a wonderful Christmas gift for Kim Davis,” the group said. “Kim can celebrate Christmas with her family knowing she does not have to choose her public office and her deeply-held religious convictions.”

I think driving Kim Davis from the Democrat party will cost them for decades to come.

And in the final irony David Ermold one of the men who forced the confrontation that sent her to jail ran couldn’t even win the Democrat primary to unseat her despite a ton of money from bigtime liberals

A gay Kentucky man who was denied a marriage license by Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis nearly three years ago has lost his bid to unseat her. 

David Ermold had been seeking the Democratic nomination for county clerk in Tuesday’s primary in Rowan County, Kentucky. Though Ermold’s high-profile campaign raised more than $200,000 from supporters, including donations from Amy Schumer and Susan Sarandon, he lost to challenger Elwood Caudill Jr. in the four-way primary, the Lexington Herald-Reader reports

and liberals in the press are still angry, particularly as she has a book out:

Holier-than-thou public figures such as Gov. Matt Bevin, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and evangelist Franklin Graham rallied to Davis’ cause. Those three have now written promotional blurbs for her book, which has the arrogant title, “Under God’s Authority.”

“When history called upon Kim, she was both ready and willing to respond,” Bevin wrote. “Will the same be said of you?”

Pardon me while I pound my fist.

if she’s pounding her face now wait till Kim Davis gets re-elected again.
