Right-wing digest

ANYONE WHO’S been passing through here for at least a year knows I’m a Trump fan. I voted for him long-distance and think he’s not only a breath of fresh air in Washington but that he’s trying to fulfill his campaign promises in spite of opposition from both Democrats and Republicans.

donIf given the chance, I’ll vote for him again.

Trump, like me, is ostensibly a Republican, but I don’t think he’s much of one, and neither am I. I’m Republican simply because it’s the only voting option in America that is not the Democrat Party, which was my party for decades.

The Democrat Party has become extremist, succumbing to political correctness, pie-in-the-sky socialism, and race-baiting, among countless other sins.

If you follow conservative news sources, you know that Trump is having a slow slog due to opposition from both Democrats and, incredibly, Republicans. Most U.S. politicians, no matter the party, are corrupt, self-serving, nincompoops.

If you follow left-wing news sources, you know that Trump is an orange-haired monster married to a prostitute.* His daily life is dedicated to lynching “negros,” grabbing women’s hoohahs and persecuting Mohammedans.

Speaking of news sources, I’m going to tell you some good conservative ones. I read them every morning online. I do not subscribe to actual newspapers. Very few people in Mexico do, and I don’t watch television news.

I’m strictly an online guy.

I pay virtually no attention to Mexican news. Although I vote here, I let Mexico take care of itself — and hope for the best.

(Amusingly, a few years ago, I was asked to be the honcho of our local polling station. An all-day commitment, I turned it down. Another reason was that I did not think my Mexican neighbors would appreciate a Gringo overseeing their voting.)

But the title of this post is its purpose. I am sharing my conservative news sources with you. Some right-wing sources are as silly as left-wing ones.

Read mine, however, and you’ll get smarter.

What may be surprising is that I read neither Breitbart nor Fox’s websites. I dodge Breitbart because they focus too much on trivialities, and they incredibly fired a staffer months back over a purely PC issue.

I don’t read Fox’s website because the company stupidly threw Bill O’Reilly overboard. I don’t always agree with Bill, mostly due to his Catholicism, but he was the heart of Fox. Plus, Fox’s website is heavy on silly showbiz gossip.

Without further ado, here’s where you can get some straight-shooting conservative coverage with a minimum of showbiz fluff and wacky conspiracy theories:

  1. The Washington Times, solid, sober coverage that you often don’t get in that other Washington newspaper.
  2. The Daily Caller.
  3. The Gateway Pundit.
  4. The Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro’s home. Try to ignore the pop-up pushing his free book.
  5. Truth Revolt.

I know there are lots of others, but these are my Fav Five.

melania* Melania is growing on me. I initially considered her little more than a trophy wife. She is that, but I like her. She’s buena gente. After Ivana and Marla, Trump only had one way to go: up. And he did.

Leftist thuggery

BILL WHITTLE does it again.

Let’s give him a warm Moon welcome. Let him feel the love!

Mohammedan myth

MEET BEN SHAPIRO, a conservative Jew, both religiously and politically. He’s one of my favorite fellows, a political activist, pundit and writer for the Right Side.

He’s the Honcho of the online news site, Truth Revolt, which is an arm of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a conservative think tank.

Shapiro is young, fearless and incredibly articulate. Now and then, he inexplicably is invited to speak at an elite university, and much of the student body and faculty, whom Shapiro refers to as “snowflakes,”  go stark, raving insane.

They throw things. They scream. They holler. They toss red paint to represent blood. They foam at the mouth.

They heave their plushy bears out of their playpens.

And Shapiro, unfazed, keeps on speaking through it all.

This common reaction on campuses today highlights the hilarious irony of the left’s referring to Donald Trump as dangerous, a man who incites violence.

The left-wing Democrat Party is all about violence, either verbal or both physical and verbal.

True, Trump increasingly says that pushing back is justified, and he is correct. The Jews of 1930s Europe did not push back, and remember how that ended for them.

The increasing political violence in the United States began on the left, and it’s growing daily. It’s the left that abhors free speech, not the conservatives. It’s the left that shouts down contrary opinions, not the conservatives.

Were Bill Ayers to be invited to speak at one of the very few conservative campuses, he would be listened to politely or, more likely, he would be ignored.

He would not be physically threatened or even bellowed at because conservatives are polite people.

Today, Shapiro is addressing the myth that most Mohammedans are peaceful or — more correctly — that most do not harbor radical, violent attitudes.

While it is true that most do not actually murder “the infidels” or even stone women of their own religion, most do think it’s a real swell idea much of the time.
