This week at a Presidential social media summit on anti-conservative bias among the tech giants, President Trump took a few moments to describe “Antifa,” the mask-wearing “anti-fascists” who actually engage in fascist tactics themselves, donning masks to hide their faces as they gang up on and beat conservative journalists or elderly veterans in MAGA hats.

Trump’s description of them as cowardly losers who have skinny little arms, live in their moms’ basements, and for some reason never attack the “Bikers for Trump” will surely be depicted by the press as crude, insulting and unpresidential…instead of what it actually was: hilarious and dead-on accurate.

The members of Antifa are delusional if they think they are anything other than fascists themselves, or that ludicrously describing themselves as “social justice warriors” means they actually are warriors, a noble term that should be reserved for real soldiers, not cowards and bullies who attack the weak while hiding their faces, then run away.  There are reports that they’re now planning to try to blind people they disagree with by throwing acid in their faces.

It’s obvious that this group has become a domestic terrorist organization, and despite being pathetic, they are still dangerous.  It’s long past time for federal law enforcement to start dealing as harshly with them as they do with any other violent radical group.  Except in their case, just the threat of yanking their masks off and putting their photos on social media, where all their potential future employers and their moms/landlords can see them (like the ones at the link below – and note how little “diversity” they exhibit!) might be enough to make the rest scurry to their rooms and learn to behave like civilized adults before they come out again.

On Friday, the Dow added yet another record to the many set over the past two years, closing at 27,332, the first time it’s ever topped 27,300. 

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/07/its-official-in-president-trumps-first-two-and-a-half-years-hes-already-outperformed-every-president-in-us-history/

But as Joe Hoft points out at the link, the Dow closing number is only a small part of the story.  Hoft ticks off a long list of stock market records and accomplishments since Trump became President.  They include adding nearly 9,000 points to the Dow (a 49% increase!) since the 2016 election.  In fact, Hoft notes that Trump’s stock market record has not only beaten Obama’s, it’s now outperformed every President in US stock market history. 

Hoft notes that the Fed kept interest rates near zero throughout Obama’s entire tenure to keep the market up, then started raising them over and over immediately after Trump was elected, so it likely would have been even higher if the Fed weren’t actively trying to tamp it down. 

As conservatives across the Internet love to remind liberals, this is what the New York Times’ economics expert Paul Krugman tweeted on Election night, immediately after Trump won:

“If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.”

He was spectacularly wrong, as were so many other predictions of imminent doom and disaster.  But over two years into Trump’s first term, I’d add that if the question is, “When will leftists afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome ever recover,” then “never” is a pretty safe answer.

---------------------------------------

Just when you think we’ve reached the outer limits of wacky PC absurdity, someone plants a flag in new territory.  Like self-described “cultural theorist” Dan Hassler-Forest, who wrote an article actually published in the Washington Post, about how Disney’s new CGI remake of the animated classic “The Lion King” represents “fascist ideology writ large,” and “incorporates the white supremacist’s worldview.” 

(Would you be surprised to learn that he also finds ways to compare the lion villain of the story and his hyena henchmen to Donald Trump and his supporters?  No?)  It’s already been called “the dumbest article ever published by WaPo,” which probably isn’t fair because there are so many worthy contenders.

https://boundingintocomics.com/2019/07/11/the-washington-post-publishes-op-ed-claiming-that-the-lion-king-is-a-fascistic-story/

Since the story is loosely based on “Hamlet” (and nature), and about 80% of the voice actors of the new version are black, I can’t help wondering if Shakespeare, Beyonce and Donald Glover knew they were promoting fascism, white supremacy and Trump? 

If the early reviews are any indicator, the movie may have problems more serious than one social justice warrior nutcase thinking it promotes fascism and white supremacy (after all, he’d probably say the same thing about “Madea’s Family Reunion.”)  Below is one of the most vicious and entertaining reviews.  If audiences agree with this merciless pan, maybe it will finally herald the end of live-action remakes of classic cartoons and studios will finally start filming original stories again.  Or at least stealing some different ones from Hans Christian Anderson.

    Ari Fleisher is still part of the old elite guard. Just heard him comment on Trumps remarks re the socialist gang of 4, and it never ceases to amaze me how even Fox contributores "add" words that were not said to enhance the conversation or imply he's racist. Trump DID NOT say, to myy knowledge, "go back to your home country." He said, if you don't like it here, leave. If they want communism, poverty, dictatorships, no power to the people, and a country like Argentina, then, go there! That's not racist! Words are added to MAKE everything he says a racist remark. Talking heads are no different on Fox except for a few. "WE" the people are observant and very smart. I'm tired personally of being condescended by talking heads who know nothing about "living" in sanctuary cities, or dealing with sanctuary governments. Have no idea as they themselves are very removed from it. I'm just disgusted. Trump is only saying out loud what the majority of the country OUTSIDE of DC, NY, Wash. Oregon and CA AND TALKING HEADS are saying. By the way, planted here in CA, and from PA, I can tell you, no one from those grass roots states will ever vote for anyone from CA. I predict there will be a revolt in CA to throw people out of office next round. Since no one from Repub party comes here, they have no idea what we who are hanging on think! Many of those who leave, are just a bunch of do nothings anyhow in the community and complainers who never try to turn things around. Half of them who leave don't even vote. Streets here where I live are very empty recently since announcements of gathering up those to be deported. GOOD! Home Depot does not have 40 men hanging around on the streets outside for work ! Wonder why? Good work, ICE! My taxes are waaay too high supporting schools, roads, police, etc. No one wants to come here to my town to sign up for lots of open positions for police officers. Wonder why? It is no longer safe to go out at dusk where I live. I fact, crime has become so blantant in your face, that it happens right in front of you. Just disgusted in a sanctuary city...Tell it like it is, Mr. President. I'm not a racist either. Just a taxpayer and an American Citizen and a Voter!

    ANTIFA IF YOUR DEMONSTRATIONS ARE ON SOLID MORAL GROUNDS. TAKE OFF THE MASKS

    Gov. Huckabee, Saw your program on TBN Saturday evening and that you had skin surgery. Glad to hear doctors got all of the cancer and that you are doing fine. My wife had similar surgery several years ago. You are a voice of reason and common sense for the conservative majority who never get heard in the media.

    Antifa is an organization that needs to have an opponent that will talk with them of course we do not expect one little camera man to try and talk intelligently with them that by any means would not work well. Perhaps a squad of young Marines could talk with them at these rallies or what ever they are protesting and see if they can help these people protest within the law. As in Portland the police seemed scared to protect the citizens the police chief must have been the instructor of police in Florida when the police stood down while children were murdered in a school murdering spree to serve and protect better look up up the meaning of those words. It's not just a slogan Portland its the law. Antifa invite the Marines to escort u at the next rally.

    Really Great Article as usual--However this is occurring during the Worst disaster in American History, at least in the eyes of Fox news!
    All programming interrupted BECAUSE a section of NYC went dark due to a Transformer failure.
    Hey FOX --The other 98% of America could care less about your power outage. In My Small town we have power outages everytime a Truck applies it's Jake Brake to come to a stop at the four way.
    I would reply directly to Fox but their Inbox is always FULL.

    I watched the trailer of The Lion King, and just don't get the panning of this remake. I know my granddaughters would absolutely love to see this movie, and I will make sure they do! The message of good vs. evil still resounds, and isn't that the crux of our lives on this earth? If professional critics pan it, one can almost guarantee that it is worth seeing. Thank you, Governor Mike, for all you do!
    Blessings!

    Brilliant as always, Governor! These demented idiots are digging their holes deeper & deeper. Some people never learn. Thank you for keeping us informed!

    May God continue to bless you with such insight Mr. Huckabee. Thanks for sharing. Enemies of the United States choose to demoralize the patriots of this Nation under God. They forget along with the "Stars and Bars" is it's sister flag "Don't Tread On Me"! God bless the United States of America! Donold Trump 2020!

    dan hasler forest wouldn't have liked Mr Disney. He represented wholesomeness in his films. He was very conservative in his views and high moral conduct as he also required of his employees.

    Love your pieces Governor, and as a resident of Hot Springs, AR, can’t wait to vote for Sarah as Governor.

    Responding to your column today, specifically in reference to your comments about the Stock Market under President Trump. Don’t want to get into the weeds in the issue, but an accommodating Fed under Obama was appropriate for The Recovery That Never Happened. The economy began performing under the anti-regulatory, pro-business Trump Administration, and the Fed tightened and moved towards a more neutral policy, historically consistent.

    I know our President doesn’t like it and thinks it’s unfair, but he’s spiting everyone with his great economic performance, anyway.

    I know you know and understand my point, but as a retired banker (for Tommy May, no less) I had to respond to any implication that Fed Policy is all politics. I’d love to adhere to the belief that a few things in our system, the Fed (?) remain independent and above partisan politics.

    All the best,
    John Dews
