The Alt-Left is Real

The Alt-Left is Real

I have officially lost all respect for the left and their behavior in light of certain events.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Charlottesville riots have shed light on the darkest kinds of extremism. Of course from news sites like CNN, The Young Turks and other leftists, they seem to focus a lot on the alt-right. The Klu Klux Klan, Neo-nazi's and other white nationalist groups have been rightfully moved into the limelight. I personally despise white supremacy, however I am not afraid of it. I am not afraid of it because we are living in the year 2017, where cultural diversity reigns supreme. We have moved passed slavery, the Jim Crow laws, and the separate drinking fountains that racially divided us. Of course while I believe race is real, I don't believe it matters. I will say that again: Race is real, but it doesn't matter. We are all still human beings regardless of who we are, no matter our race, gender, ethnicity, culture or religion.

However, in the year of 2017, a new kind of hatred has risen. I am not just talking about the right, but from the left as well. The party that claims they believe in equality have proven to be just as violent and just as hateful as their right wing counterparts. The movement, or maybe I should say organization, (its kind of a grey area, although I lean more towards the latter), is called ANTIFA. Short for "anti-fascist" or "anti-fascism." Obviously a movement that was created in opposition to Donald Trump's presidency. I was originally going to keep my mouth shut on this group, as they have done a good job at demonizing themselves based on their own actions, however, in the light of these violent riots, I have no choice but to expose the left, or as Trump now deems it, the Alt-Left, for who they really are.

This all started when Trump condemned the actions committed by these white nationalist groups at a press conference on Saturday. Trump is quoted in saying: "We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides." Unfortunately, it wasn't enough for the leftists because he didn't direct it at specifically the white supremacy groups. I personally believe he was being general with this statement, because right-wing extremist groups aren't the only hate groups in this country. ANTIFA, a left-wing extremist group which claims to stand against fascism. at least what they claim to be fascism, were also present in Virginia last week along with thousands of other left wing protesters to counter the white supremacist rally. This is ultimately what started up the violence in the first place, and as a result, a women was killed when a car deliberately drove through a crowd of protesters.

So on Monday, two days later, Trump made a more detailed statement. He said: "Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America." Unfortunately, this statement still isn't enough to satisfy the hungry liberal animals. They still believe that Trump is a white supremacist. Which I find hilarious, because not once during the election or his presidency has he said anything that is remotely sympathetic or influenced by white supremacy. And every liberal I know has still failed to show me any evidence to prove me wrong. Oh wait, but they tried. I've received numerous articles saying that white supremacists praised Trump for his first statement, and claiming that he wasn't attacking them. Such as a neo-nazi news site, The Daily Stormer, and former head of the Klu Klux Klan, David Duke. But the press doesn't always tell the truth, in fact, the press can tell you almost anything, and they can mis-interpret and mis-represent quotes just to make you believe them. I am personally amused by how these white supremacists actually believe that Trump is their ticket to restoring a white America, let alone thinking they will ever be successful at it.

However, I have two possible arguments for why Trump was so late on condemning the riots in Virginia. The first one is that he was busy dealing with North Korea, who have repeatedly threatened to attack our air force in Guam. The news was all over this. They were all saying that Trump was going to nuke North Korea and start a third world war. But thankfully, North Korea backed down from their threats. However, no one seems to care....but anyway... The second reason is that, Trump just doesn't care about social events. He didn't comment on the Berkeley riots and no one complained about that, possibly because they were liberals, so why do we care what he has to say about Charlottesville to begin with? He doesn't have to say anything, because he is not a white supremacist. You can also look in his inner circle to see this as well. In the video within the link which I will post here for you see. One of the first things he does is shake hands with a group of veterans, and one of them is a black woman. He also appointed Ben Carson as the Secretary of Housing and Development in the cabinet. His daughter Ivanka converted to Judaism, upon marrying Jared Kushner. His wife, Melania, is a Yugoslavian immigrant and a legalized citizen. That said, I don't see anything racist, xenophobic or white nationalistic about him. Is he a natural born dickhead, yes, but so was Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and we didn't accuse them of white supremacy. (Although I do believe Bill Clinton is borderline sexist.)

And for the record, this is just one violent riot involved white nationalists, if anymore have occurred, the press hasn't covered it, and this would also include CNN whose had a track record of out right lying to the public. (And I'm just giving them the benefit of the doubt with the link I posted in this article." There are countless videos all over Youtube, showing the violent acts committed by ANTIFA, and other leftists.

ANTIFA, like the alt-right extremists we have come to know and love, are a hate group, borderline terrorists, and a form of Alt-left extremism. They are only recognized as such by the state of New Jersey. Since they don't have a central organization and operate on local levels, it is impossible to pin point their numbers. However you can find many social media sites of ANTIFA groups in various states and cities. I have signed a petition to have The President of the United States, recognize ANTIFA as a terrorist organization, but it needs more signatures in order to do so. If you agree with me, then sign this petition and pass it on to your friends. ANTIFA practices their right to free speech and protest but they infringe on conservatives and right wing groups of doing the same thing. And if that is not authoritarianism, then I don't know what is.

As the Fall semester approaches I will be discussing more on ANTIFA, the Regressive Left and the Alt-left. But until then I hope you are all having a safe summer. Thank You.

The Electoral College Is Collapsing And Taking America With It

The electoral college is how America has elected Presidents for centuries, and it's falling apart.

If you don't know what the electoral college is, you might want to revisit your U.S. history teacher. The Electoral College was created in the 19th century to create a cushion between us citizens and the election of a president.

See, there were these federalist dudes that were so afraid of tyranny that they did as much as they could to create obstructions before America fell into the hands of the all-mighty powerful.

Well sorry to disappoint you Hamilton, but we are already there. President Trump literally leads a spiral of tyrannical destruction which means our only hope lays in the hand of the democratic party. Thing is: they're still salty from 2016 and want to abolish the electoral college. (Yes, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, I'm talking about you.)

We're a little screwed.

The electoral college is how they, the Democrats, lost in 2016. Hillary Clinton had the popular vote, but with the way the electoral college is, Donald Trump won.

The electoral college is a certain number of votes per state based on population, no less than three, that represent the state in voting for president of the United States. Here's the kicker: it's a winner take all system, for 48 states.

Basically, if 51% of State A voted for Trump, then 100% of the electoral college of State A voted for Trump. The electoral college favors smaller states overrepresenting them which means miscalculating an election winner.

Democrats are salty and anti-Trump conservatives want him gone without putting a far-left liberal as president (*cough* Bernie).

When you scratch the surface of how useless the electoral college is, you get to see some of the benefits of what our founding fathers were thinking. Sure, it supports a dominant two-party system, but geographically speaking, smaller rural states that wouldn't have a voice without it get one.

Also, bigger states don't have to deal with the sh*tshow of processing ballot, possible voter fraud, run-offs, and more of the unwanted stuff.

The electoral college may be flawed but it's also essential to our democracy — yet so many Democrats want to abolish it.

The electoral college is falling apart and so is America.

Our bipartisanship has broken away over the years, and if we want to save our country, we must learn to work together. We must fix it not throw it away.

This means the great candidates running for office in the Democratic Party must work together, not against each other, in choosing the front-runner to go up against our tyrannical president to win the electoral college, not just popular vote.

However, in the end, whether we are Democrat, Republican, or independent, we are all on team USA.

I Absolutely LOVE The Abortion Bill Oklahoma Has Passed

"Men controlling women"? Get over yourself.

4014
views

"A pregnant woman seeking to abort her pregnancy shall be required to provide, in writing, the identity of the father of the fetus to the physician who is to perform or induce the abortion." The bill does include exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and when the mother's life is in danger or cases where the father of the fetus has died (and of course, there has to be proof of his death).

A woman HAS TO PROVIDE CONSENT OF THE FATHER in order to abort her pregnancy and I absolutely love this. People in my hometown and state-wide are obviously upset about this because a decent number of them are "pro-choice." They're claiming that this is just another way for "men to control women" and God forbid that gets in the way of their feminist, pro-choice agenda (and I'll address this unfathomable bullshit in a minute).

If you didn't notice already, I'm pro-life. I 100% agree with the bill, even the exceptions. I may be a pro-life Republican, but I'm also a decent human being. I'm sure pro-choice Democrats are either laughing or disgusted thus far, but let me tell you something.

There are other answers compared to killing something that you, or any other woman helped to create. One specifically is adoption. Before you make the cliche argument "Why would I place a child in such a terrible system when I could spare them the agony of a potentially terrible life?" (OR ANYTHING ALONG THOSE LINES), let me shed light on this.

Think of all the couples that desperately want children but have zero ability to have their own. Think about the families that would do anything to raise a child. While you, or any woman, is/are pregnant, there are plenty of adoption agencies that you can visit. You can look through hundreds-of-thousands of files, searching for an amazing family that you like. From there, you can sit through interviews and meet these families that are so. eager. to have a baby. If anything, think of how saddened and desperate Chandler and Monica were when they found out they couldn't have a baby. Instead of ripping away and literally killing a couple's chance of having a baby, give them yours.

A 9-10 month commitment isn't that big of a deal when you think in terms of granting happiness to someone for a LIFETIME. And considering that it's a felony homicide in Oklahoma now.

When you get an abortion, outside of the exceptions listed above, you're selfish. You're only thinking about yourself and the fact that you don't want to be a mom (and perhaps not financially stable--but we shall revisit the adoption topic). Well guess what? Someone is. Give them that chance. And if you're thinking I'm a hypocrite and wouldn't follow through with adopting a baby like I'm preaching right now, you're wrong. I would 100% adopt.

As for "men controlling women," get over yourself. Feminists rant about gender equality all the time and guess what? Think of how many women kept their babies even though their boyfriends, baby daddies, and maybe even fiances and husbands didn't want one. This is the same thing, but a gender reverse. I can think of many guys that wanted to be dads, but their girlfriends decided otherwise with no remorse for their feelings. If the father wants to keep the baby and be a dad, he deserves to fight for it.

It takes two to make a baby. The fathers of these unborn rays of sunshine deserve rights and, in Oklahoma, they just got it. You ladies want gender equality? You just got it. Quit the double standards. Quit your bitching.
