HIDING THINGS

(Warning! Bad Language at the Link!) A recent Project Veritas expose showed Democratic operatives talking about how they had to hide their gun control agenda from Arizona voters until after they got Mark Kelly elected to the Senate. Now, his campaign has a new headache, with word that in a post on Twitter in August, his campaign’s deputy press secretary T.J. L’Heureux called Chicago Police “worthless f****** pigs.”

This calls into question both Kelly’s respect for the police and for law and order, and also his judgement in hiring a press secretary who thinks it’s a good idea to curse the police on Twitter.

MANIPULATED MEDIA

When conservatives create humorous videos and memes by editing news footage of Democrats, Twitter routinely labels them as “manipulated media” or bans them outright. So how come they haven’t banned a liberal attempt at humor that involves editing a lot of Trump clips together to make it seem that he’s saying something he didn’t really say?

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t even complain about this because humor is protected speech and I hate when people get all huffy over an obvious joke. But I can see the argument for putting a label on it. For the past four years, liberals have been getting their comedy about Trump from Colbert, Kimmel, Trevor Noah, SNL, etc. etc. So they’re probably no longer capable of recognizing an actual joke unless it’s plainly labeled.

THE NEW ARBITERS OF TRUTH?!?

I’ve written before about how Democrats like to attach the word “debunked” to negative stories about them without first going through the inconvenient process of actually debunking anything. Well, look for the latest example to be all those alleged incriminating emails involving Hunter and Joe Biden that the New York Post is publishing.

Twitter and Facebook banned anyone from sharing them, and now the Biden campaign is pointing at that ban as proof that they’ve been debunked. From Biden’s press secretary Jamal Brown:

“I think Twitter’s response to the actual article itself makes clear that the purported allegations are false and they’re not true and glad to see social media companies like Twitter taking responsibility to limit misinformation.”

FYI: the feeble excuse from Twitter and Facebook for trying to censor the story wasn’t that the emails were fake but that they might have been obtained by hacking, which the Post says they weren’t. Not even Twitter or Facebook has said the story is false; they’re just trying to keep you from reading it.

Considering that at this point, both Facebook and Twitter can safely be considered as unpaid arms of the Biden campaign, for the Biden campaign to claim a story is false because it’s being suppressed by an arm of the Biden campaign takes the popular excuse of “Because I said so!” to a whole new level.

"NOBODY"

Joe Biden is certain that President Trump called all Mexicans rapists and criminals (he didn’t) and that he called the coronavirus a hoax (he didn’t), and he claims he decided to run when he heard Trump say there were very fine people among neo-Nazis and white supremacists (he didn’t and he’s repeatedly said the opposite.) Now, Biden is certain that Trump said something else that he never said.

Tuesday, Biden told a group of seniors in Florida that when Trump said the coronavirus affects virtually nobody, “Think about that…He was talking about America’s seniors. He was talking about you.” He said Trump thinks older voters are “expendable, forgettable, you’re virtually nobody. That’s how he sees seniors…”

Um…no. This is what Trump said at a rally in Ohio, in context:

“Now we know it affects elderly people, elderly people with heart problems and other problems. If they have other problems, that’s what it really affects. That’s it. You know, in some states, thousands of people, nobody young below the age of 18, like nobody. They have a strong immune system, who knows. Take your hat off to the young because they have a hell of an immune system, but it affects virtually nobody. It’s an amazing thing. By the way, open your schools.”

So Trump actually said that it does affect seniors and people with underlying medical conditions, but OTHER THAN THAT, it affects virtually nobody, which is borne out by CDC stats showing the survival rate among young, otherwise healthy people is 99.99%. When he said “nobody,” he was referring to people who are NOT seniors.

I know everyone’s concerned about Joe’s brain, but I wonder if maybe his ears need a doctor’s attention, too?

"SEXUAL PREFERENCE"

Speaking of liberal attempts to control what you say and think, please adjust your Newspeak guides to note that the term “sexual preference” became offensive overnight, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, after Judge Amy Coney Barrett said it and Senate embarrassment Mazie Hirono made a big fuss over it being offensive. Also please make a note that only usages of it after October 14, 2020, are offensive, since it apparently wasn’t offensive when Joe Biden said it in May, or when the gay magazine The Advocate used it on September 25, or the last time the M-W dictionary updated its definitions, which was on September 28th.

IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE IT IS TRUE

Thanks to Instapundit for rounding up this collection of some of the best and funniest Facebook memes on this week’s news. The commenters below the story added a few good ones as well.

RIP CONCHATA FERRELL

By “Huckabee” pop culture guru Pat Reeder (http://www.facebook.com/hollywoodhifibook)

We’re sorry to have to report that versatile character actress Conchata Ferrell has died at 77 from complications following cardiac arrest.

While she was most famous as the intimidating housekeeper Berta on the long-running sitcom “Two-and-a-Half Men,” a role that earned her two Emmy nominations for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy, she played a wide range of roles over her five-decade career. Her third Emmy nod was for a dramatic role on “L.A. Law,” and her dozens of TV credits range from “Maude,” “Good Times” and an early cult favorite from the ‘70s, “Hot L Baltimore,” to “ER,” “Friends,” “Touched By an Angel,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Matlock” and “JAG.” Her movie credits include such hits as “Mystic Pizza,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Eric Brockovich” and “Network.” She also won awards for her stage roles and taught acting at UCLA.

The news of her death brought a flood of tributes from her many co-stars. Jon Cryer tweeted, “She was a beautiful human. Berta’s gruff exterior was an invention of the writers.” Charlie Sheen called her “an absolute sweetheart…a consummate pro…a genuine friend.”

Our sympathies to her colleagues, fans and family, and to her husband of 34 years, Arnie Anderson.
