Weekend Open Thread 20 April 2019

I was going to call it the Easter Open Thread but this site is primarily about bearing witness to the bias of the Far Left BBC as opposed to specific religions [or none ]. Any way – there is a new line of attack for us . The BBC has whole heartedly swallowed all the human- activity-changing- climate stuff . You may agree or not .

But the point is – if the BBC wants to cut its ‘carbon fingerprint ‘ – is it doing it ? How many beeboids are sent to stand in front of events to talk at the camera when they’d do the same job sitting in a studio ? How much carbon is used and taxpayers’ cash spent ?

‘Does this evil organisation practice what it now preaches ? Perhaps every programme should have its carbon footprint published – the number of air miles and car miles – and programme cost -for starters .

Happy Easter .

Candace Owens blasts the Democrats ….

….and gets some heart-warming help from a Republican.

Some of my eminent colleagues here have watched clips of Candace Owens fighting back against the Democrats, including her powerful defence against a sly, PeeCee defamer named Lieu, during the hearing on hate crimes. Out of general interest and in order to hear more from Candace, I decided to plough through 3 hours of the hearing on YouTube.

An hour and 38 minutes in, Republican Representative Buck of Colorado broke through Democrat propaganda and questioned Candace with evident admiration. Here’s how he began:

Ms Owens, I’m going to address these questions to you, if I may. I don’t know if you’ve seen this, [holding up a file] but it’s a memorandum that the majority Democrats prepared for the committee members and in this memorandum they go through the various witnesses’ names and organisations that they represent, the Anti-Defamation League, the Equal Justice Society, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights under Law and then we get to you.

Oh my goodness. Candace Owens, Director of Communications at the conservative …. Nobody else is described as progressive or liberal but you are described as a conservative advocacy group for Turning Point USA and a conservative commentator and political activist known for her criticism of Black Lives Matter and the Democrat Party. I think you’ve caused my friends on the left to go to their safe spaces and I’d love to explore with you a little bit of the reasons for that…

Then Representative Buck asks Candace a number of questions which bring a smile to her face. Brought a smile to my face too as the back and forth between the two of them demonstrated the best of America when they cut through lefty PeeCee like the proverbial hot knife through butter.

I’m going to plough through the next two hours of the hearing on the lookout for another gem or two in between the propaganda onslaught from the Democrats.

Meanwhile, here’s Candace and Representative Buck.

Update:

Here’s the address to a UK audience by Candace and Charlie of Turning Point. It’s over an hour, but Representative lieu chose to play a half-minute clip of it during the hearing to try to smear Candace as an apologist for Hitler.

And here’s Lieu with his attempted smear. He has the gall to turn to other witnesses without even giving Candace a chance to respond. She gets the chance at 5:30 in, and demolishes him as well as Chairman Nadler, who tries to defend Lieu.

Update April 14:

Candace Owens reminds me of Diamond and Silk, two powerful black American women who also testified before Congress and who also refused to show the slightest respect for sly Democrats with no moral fibre who tried to bring them down.

The Deplorable Choir….

….takes its name, of course, from Hilary Clinton’s backfiring attempt to denigrate Trump supporters.

Here’s what freedom looks and sounds like:

Proud to be Deplorable

Vote Republican song

No smokin’ gun

Brick by brick

Pro-life Song

And this guy John Morgan is so good I thought for a moment that Bush had taken up a new career:

George W Bush sings Hallelujah to Donald Trump

I realise this is all a touch off topic for this fine website, but I needed a break from the appalling Brexit betrayal and, of course, from the BBC’s delight in the betrayal.

I hope my esteemed colleagues here enjoy the entertainment.

Just a request or three

David Vance has appealed over the years to contributors to moderate their language, so I’m just echoing that appeal here. There’s nothing to be gained by competing with the comments section under many YouTube videos, and swearing probably drives some people away from the site who would otherwise contribute.

More disturbing are attacks on political figures which can be interpreted as promoting violence and even assassination. This blog is not a hate site, never was and I’m sure never will be.

We have to also consider the disturbing moves on the part of the ‘government’ towards a police state, where people can be hauled out of their homes, shoved before a kangaroo court without genuine legal aid and jailed for expressing the ‘wrong’ opinion.

Passionate argument against the foul BBC and its ilk is what we should be aiming at, so let’s try not to be diverted from that course.
