Jay Inslee calls the conscientious “Extremists”

Here’s another Unfit For The Internet award.  Although, it most certainly qualifies as unfit for anything.

If you haven’t seen the videos from Planned Parenthood selling body parts from aborted babies you should.  They are truly shocking and abhorrent.  The videos highlight something that the local and federal governments were not aware of.  That Planned Parenthood not only convinces women to have abortions and carries them out, but they harvest the bodies of the killed babies and sells the body parts.  Paying special attention to the parts that will bring in the most money.  The callous nature that these doctors show for the bodies of the babies shouldn’t be allowed.  Even Hillary Clinton has come out and said that the videos were disturbing.

Now comes in Jay Inslee, the moronic Governor of the State of Washington, to open his mouth and show why electing him was a mistake.  He released a statement after he received letters from people who have a conscience asking for either an investigation to start into these allegations or funding being removed from Planned Parenthood.  It’s not surprising that letters like these be sent to every governor in the union given the nature of this problem, but Governor Inslee doesn’t see it that way.  The Seattle PI’s article states…

“Planned Parenthood provides millions of women across the country access to a full range of affordable health care and family planning services,” Inslee said in a statement.  “National extremist organizations are engaged in a concerted effort to discredit, and ultimately eliminate, an organization that so many women rely on.” (emphasis mine)

That’s right, Inslee is calling people who conscientiously object to the selling of the body parts of the babies they are aborting “extremists”.  That’s right, if you have a conscience and feel that at the least an investigation to these allegations should be started, you are an extremist.  It’s apparently wrong to even ask for an investigation into likely illegal activities shown in the video.

But you would be remiss if you thought that this was an original thought out of the brain of Inslee.  It sounds as if he’s just parroting the how the President of Planned Parenthood feels about those who caught them in the act.  His statement and his choice of words speaks volumes about how he feels with those of conscience.  He’s telegraphed his actions and will not do his sworn duty to uphold the law.

And for his part, he has earned the Unfit For The Internet award.  Governor Inslee, you are unfit!

How many ways can you say something?

There’s so many ways that Democrats have upped their game which is causing their wins.  The Republicans and Conservatives have learned about some of these, but many they have not.  One of the biggest ways Democrats beat Republicans and Conservatives is how they construct their message

There was something that President Obama said early in his presidency that tipped me off to this tactic. I can’t remember the exact instance, but if memory serves me right, it was when the bulk of the country was against the bill that became the “Affordable Health Care Act”.  When President Obama was asked a question about either what he thought about the lack of support or what he thought went wrong, he admitted that the message wasn’t on point.  I remember hearing a few Conservative and Republican pundits think that he meant that his talks weren’t written well enough.  When I heard that, I thought that as well initially.  After thinking about it, the message meant the whole message, not just a bunch of talks and his comments, but the message that every Democrat Legislator, reporter, pundit, and blogger said. Its as if the Democrats very carefully structure and word their message so that it appeals to the most possible people.  In one way or another, the message is repeated not just by politicians, but by pundits and media in a seemingly coordinated effort.

This is evident in their constant changing of the terminology they use for what they are talking about if it’s not sticking.  A perfect example is this “Climate Change”.  Do you remember that the official term is “Anthropogenic Global Warming”?  Anthro as in anthropology, or the study of humans and their works.  Genic as in genesis, or the beginning of something.  Well, that’s a very unsexy and technical term that the many passionate voters wouldn’t understand let alone consistently pronounce or remember.  I would bet that if you surveyed these voters and asked them what “Anthropogenic Global Warming” was they wouldn’t be able to correctly answer.  However, they would understand “Global Warming”.  So, why not just get rid of “Anthropogenic” and just call it “Global Warming”?  That’s what the Democrats did.  But when there was legitimate evidence questioning the science and methods used to promote AGW they didn’t stop there, they went straight to “Climate Change”.  I mean, who would dare deny that the climate changes over the millennia?  Of course, anyone who disagrees with “Anthropogenic Global Warming” gets thrown into a group who denies “Climate Change”, regardless if that’s a logical fallacy.  This change is a changing of the message.

Most Conservatives and Republicans see that the Democrats do this.  Yet, we stick with the same tired language.  We’re against entitlements, yet we know that we need to provide support for those who are un/under employed to find a good job to be self sufficient.  But the message sounds like we think the poor are lazy.  We question the “consensus” of “Climate Change”, yet we love and support Conservation efforts.  But it’s easily changed to we want to make the air dirty and poison the water.  We don’t want to have an open immigration system and have a secure country, but we understand the desire that immigrants have to live the American Dream which needs rule of law.  Yet our message is easily contorted to sound like we are overly nationalistic and are xenophobic.  We don’t like it when police abuse their authority, but we support them because we know that they have to deal with some of the worst aspects of humanity.  Yet the message sounds like we want a police state, when in reality it’s the Democrats who want a police state. Conservatives understand that there is a whole picture, a context behind the clip, the struggle of the poor to make ends meet, yet we don’t know how to express our thoughts and desires in a way that helps those undecided voters understand what we are about and what we want.  Colloquial language changes, we should adapt our selves to these changes.

Here’s a good example of how changing your message works.  Watch the whole thing, it’s short…

Granted, the wording is a bit “bleeding heart”, but do you see how it makes the message different?  Instead of just saying “I’m blind”, saying something that others can relate to helps.  Avoiding words whose meanings and impacts have diminished over time and replacing them with more descriptive language would help.

The point is, we need to construct our message right, so that when the Democrat attack machine (major media, media apologists, political groups) try to construct an attack, their attacks sound more like they are attacking the very people they need to win elections.  This means the Black community, the Immigrant community, and those ever so important undecided voters.  These voters are important and ARE disillusioned with the Democrat party.  Not just because they are Black, or Hispanic, or Immigrant, but because with their support we gain the support of many more.

One word of caution.  We’ve caught the Democrats in lies as they spin their web of words.  I would say more lies than in any other period of time, there’s no need to list them here.  We must take care not to fall into this trap.  While the Democrats can get caught in multiple lies and still garner huge amounts of support (both in voters and in funds), a Republican or Conservative can not.  We must be careful in any messaging so that our message is true and honest.

I know I’m not the first conservative to talk about this.  This is something that I’ve noticed over the years.  We need to adapt to the changing cultural changes.  It doesn’t mean that we change our values that we hold dear.  It doesn’t mean that we have to give in to Progressive pressure in Congress or in the White House.  In fact, it could mean that we could win more and more.  We just have to wake up and look at how we are saying it, not necessarily what.  If we become good at it, we very well may be the ones who drive the change in language.

Also, I’m not an English major, or even a literary genus so please don’t take anything that I’ve written as a good example.  There’s folks out there with far better wordsmithing abilities than me.

Worse than Nixon…

Here’s a good article about how the Obama Administration (including the State Department) has tried to get around FOIA requests.

“…the Obama White House has turned stonewalling into an art form. A favorite tactic is to ignore or string out the requests. That’s what State did in Mrs. Clinton’s case, claiming it simply couldn’t get around to issuing her emails until next year…”

Well, that’s surprising.  No, not really.

Progressive Media takes a turn for the worse

We all know the season.  We need to find a replacement for President Obama and there’s no shortage of people who think they are capable, ready, and what this country needs.  With that there’s always the media who’s willing to try to persuade our viewpoints.  This provides for us a plethora of clips of media members asking some really stupid questions.  Gotcha questions.  One sided biased questions.  Even questions that might not even be questions but more of a editorial comment posed as a question.  We’ve already seen a few so far, but this has to be one of the worst so far.  Just sit back and get ready to get that creepy uncomfortable feeling down your back…

Yeah, um, apparently Cruz isn’t Cuban enough for Halperin and he wants the world to know.  Sorry, but that’s just a jerk thing to do Halperin.  You earned to Unfit for the Internet award!

How to troll Liberals and Progressives

Here’s another installment for the “Unfit for the Internet” files.  My daughter brought this to my attention yesterday.  Apparently, it’s making the rounds in the Progressive/Liberal low information voters right now.

blog-fake-news-story

About a week ago a one of those fake news sites (fake as in complete satire al a The Onion) posted up this story, about how the Hose Republicans are drafting up a bill that would give the First Daughters a dress code.  The so called “bill” is going to be titled the “The Respectable First Family Act”.  Which from the deranged mind of a Progressive, seems perfectly legit.

Here’s a snippet of the article:

“I shouldn’t need to justify why this bill is necessary to anyone, not after seeing what they were dressed like,” says the bill’s author, Congressman Richard Head (R-UT). “Did you see the photos from the march? The First Daughters looked like pole dancers. You could clearly see their knees and even an inch or two of their thighs. And one of them was wearing go-go dancer boots…

Now, this article isn’t really what I want to bring to your attention.  What I want you to do is search for “house republican dress code“.  Now, by the time you read this, the search results may be different.  However, there’s many sites of people posting comments containing their disgust for those Republicans, using names like “racist”, “morons” and other not so kind words.  That is until someone kindly let’s them know that yes, it is satire.  And then there’s a near audible sigh of relief and a well, their so stupid anyway comment.

And there’s a few sites which have posted this entirely as well with no indication that it’s a fake story.  Who knows if the people on the sites even care so long as it paints their opponents in a bad light.

Yeah, you’ve been trolled.  You’ve exposed yourself as the hateful, dismissive person you are.  I want to see more Progressives and Liberals being exposed for who they really are.

The Curse of The Inept Administration

Remember back when President Obama procured the release of a solder that had been captive by the Taliban for years?  Army Sgt Bowe Burgdhal who was held captive by the Taliban was released in exchange for 5 Taliban solders from the Gitmo detention center.  President even held a press conference to proudly show the American people that we do not leave solders behind.

Well, flash forward to today and we see that the Army is officially charging Sergeant Burgdhal with desertion.

So, we release 5 murderous creeps out into the wild of the Mid East just so we can charge a solder with Desertion.  This just highlights how inept this administration is.  How much harm will these 5 cause now?

National Review has more on this story.

Jesse Jackson tells the Tech Industry “You are Racist!”

Lets say that you’ve owned a store for 20 some odd years. Through the years you’ve gotten the reputation in the city and the industry you serve as one of the best stores for handicapped shoppers. So much so that other local stores have followed your example and methods (which you have published and given talks about) and have increased satisfaction of handicapped shoppers in the city. In fact, you have started a trend in the industry to think of handicapped shoppers world wide.

Now, let’s say that some guy drives up to your store, parks in the handicapped parking space, uses the handicapped door sensor on your doors to come in, walks up the wheelchair ramp, past the chair carts, into the store and past the cash registers made for a variety of challenged people, past the employees specifically there to help customers get their purchases to their vehicles. He comes right up to you and tells you that you and your industry don’t care about handicapped people, but he’s only talking about people who use cats as service animals.

Jesse Jackson just did that to the Tech Industry in Seattle.

“The reality is the high-tech companies are more segregated than the Ferguson police department, at least they had two blacks on the police department.”

Okay, that part makes me so mad that I’m almost physically ill. I’ve been working in the Tech Industry for 20 years, 14 of those years here in the Seattle area. I’ve been involved in interviewing and hiring individuals for the past 7 or so years. I’ve interviewed more individuals that are non-white than white individuals. It always comes down to two questions, the most important of which is Does the candidates capabilities meet the needs of of the company? It’s not based on race, or culture, or sex, or any of the other things that just don’t make sense. Why? Because the Tech Industry, unlike Jesse himself, realizes that talent comes from anywhere and everywhere. It doesn’t do a company any good to limit his talent pool if he’s looking to hire the best he can find.

But, never mind the facts, Jesse is only interested in pushing a false narrative.  And, of course, as the dutiful liberal outlet, King 5 doesn’t question Jackson’s data, let alone his motives.

Jackson is supposed to meet with the Microsoft Executive team to discuss why they are so racist.  Satya Nadella, Microsofts CEO from Hyderabad India, no doubt will correct him.  The only fear I have is that some of them will capitulate to agree to something stupid.  I hope for the sake of us share-holders that they just grab some selfies and show him the door and continue their current practices.

Of course, Jesse is just hunting for money for his group, much like he did in Ferguson, before he was essentially ran out of town. And now he’s trying to shake the largest trees with deep pockets. No doubt he’ll get the money he’s after, because here in the Left Coast there’s sheeple with money to burn.

This is nothing more than a scam by a scam artist.
