I told you that on the eve of tomorrow’s 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, the New York Times made a negative comparison of NASA to the Soviet space program, claiming that the communists gave important roles to more women and minorities. Well, it turns out the Times can’t even get the details of its anti-American victim group propaganda right.
I warn you, this is some lenghthy reading that gets deep into the weeds. But if you’d like to know what investigative journalists have been digging up for a long time about the woman who wants to impeach Trump for being the “most corrupt” President ever – the one we're all supposed to "stand with" -- and how the news media refused to look at any of their findings about her because it might have spoiled their perfect anti-Trump narrative – then set aside some time, strap on your hip boots and wade in. The first part gives you the gist, the second takes you into the details.
One quick observation before you start: imagine how this story would have been treated if she'd been a conservative Republican candidate.

Here we are at Friday, preparing for a fun summer weekend, and the Democrats and the media (pardon the oxymoron) are still banging on about how fascism has come to America because some people at a Trump rally chanted “Send her home” at the mention of Rep. Ilhan Omar on Tuesday. Well, of course, that’s still a major story, they say. Talking about deporting a naturalized US citizen just because they don’t like her politics (which include badmouthing America, making anti-Semitic statements, downplaying 9/11 and praising al-Queda)?! Why, it’s Nazism! It’s unheard-of in America! It’s unprecedented!
Except it’s not unprecedented. In fact, their side did it only two years ago.
As Matt Vespa at Townhall.com reminds us, early on in Trump’s term, Dr. Sebastian Gorka was the Deputy Assistant to the President, and Democrats hated him with the blazing heat of a thousand suns because…because…well, because he was the Deputy Assistant to President Trump, I guess (you can ask my daughter how rational their hatred of Trump’s staffers is.) They tried to smear him as a Nazi, not only calling for an investigation into partisan rumors that linked him to a far-right group in his native Hungary, but top Congressional Democrats and tireless Trump critics Dick Durban and yes, the "conscience of the Congress," Jerry Nadler actually demanded to see his immigration papers. (Saying, "You will show us your papers!" shows awfully Nazi-like to me.)
Nadler wrote in a letter to Trump that the Judiciary Committee had to “be assured that he did not enter this country under false pretenses.” And if they managed to sniff out any irregularities? Some Congressional Democrats wanted to strip him of his American citizenship and deport him.
That’s right, they wanted to (say it with me): “Send him back! Send him back! Send him back!...”
In fact, it’s still going on today. In the wake of the Omar hoo-ha, leftists are showing how far above such outrageous behavior they are by reviving their groundless call to deport Gorka. There’s even a Twitter hashtag for it.
As long as I’m at it, I’ll also point to this video, where Georgetown University students express outrage at Trump for his comments about the necessity of deporting criminal illegal immigrants. They call it “racism,” “xenophobia” and “white nationalism.” Watch their reactions when they learn that’s not a quote from Trump. It’s what Obama said in a speech on immigration law enforcement in 2014.
So please, Democrats, spare us your fake outrage over this “unprecedented” chanting incident that is a far milder echo of what you tried to use your official government powers to do just two years ago. For those of us who’ve been watching you for years, these tactics are starting to repeat on us like a bad burrito. We’ve heard your hypocritical cries of outrage more times than we’ve heard our own alarm clocks. And to repeat an analogy that I’ve used almost as many times as you’ve accused mainstream Republicans of being the next Hitler, you are like the police captain in the movie “Casablanca” who expresses “shock” to discover there’s gambling going on in Rick’s Café as he’s pocketing his winnings.
In short, we’ve carefully examined your claims of being outraged and offended, found them to be defective, and we’re sending them back.
Don’t look now, but the four far-left House members who are cynically trying to silence dissent from their lunatic positions by accusing everyone who criticizes them of being sexist, Islamophobic and racist against "women of color" are starting to get criticism from angry and offended Muslims, women and people of color.
And you must read this evisceration of their tactics by Kira Davis, an African-American woman and conservative writer/editor who is furious that three members of the socialist sisterhood are not only “appropriating” black Americans’ history of struggle against racism to deflect criticism of themselves, they’re making the only actual African-American in their group mostly stand in the background like a token while the lighter-skinned people do the talking. I think there’s a term for that. Let’s see, what could it be?…
