John “Bradshaw” Layfield (JBL) is a WWE wrestler who used to wrestle as the persona of basically a redneck or cowboy from Texas. Now he is primarily an announcer and carries on his most recent wrestling gimmick of being rich and snobby. Apparently he went on a rant on Facebook about the Confederate Battle Flag. He demonstrates his ignorance by calling the War To Prevent Southern Independence, treasonous. JBL, as a Texan, should know better than to make such an armature mistake. Secession is not treason. If it is, then the Brits need to arrest every Scot who voted for independence in their recent election. I didn’t realize that JBL is supposed to be a “conservative” and has a radio program and has appeared on Fox News. Perhaps someone should inform JBL that conservatives are supposed to conserve things. With this, JBL needs to change his gimmick. He can no longer pass as a rich Texan, a J R Ewing type. I think he needs to swap out his cowboy hat for a beret.
I haven’t had consistent access to a computer recently, and there is A LOT that needs to be posted here that has developed in the last couple of days. My main accesses to the internet has been my phone, but rest assured I have been banging away at the turncoats on Facebook. So pardon the coming barrage of posts. I could cover most of it in a single post with a lot of links, but I want to be able to Tweet the various outrages and bright spots individually.
Jack Hunter prostrates himself before the gods of political correctness once again. This time at the Daily Beast. Why there and not at his own Rare? So all the right people will see it and know just how sorry he is for all his past transgressions against rightthink?
After Jack’s first mea culpa, I wrote a long and measured article in rebuttal, but it was lost at the old site. I just don’t have the energy to do it again. I will say that this article is so craven that it makes me wonder if Jack has gotten wind of a new attack, or he just fears one in the hysteria following the Charleston shooting, especially since he was based out of Charleston.
Ugh! Another weak minded politician caving to the forces of political correctness.
Pat Buchanan makes the same point I (and others) have been making about the meaning of Donald Trump’s candidacy.
“the Trump constituency will represent a vote of no confidence in the Beltway ruling class of politicians and press.
Votes for Trump will be votes to repudiate that class, whole and entire, and dump it onto the ash heap of history.
Votes for Trump will be votes to reject a regime run by Bushes and Clintons that plunged us into unnecessary wars, cannot secure our borders, and negotiates trade deals that produced the largest trade deficits known to man and gutted a manufacturing base that was once “the great arsenal of democracy” and envy of mankind.
A vote for Trump is a vote to say that both parties have failed America and none of the current crop of candidates offers real hope of a better future.”
Mitt Romney isn’t the only one showing his true PC colors on the South Carolina Confederate Battle Flag issue. Jeb Bush has weighed in as well, and no surprise, he shills for the thought police. Ted Cruz deferred to the people of South Carolina on the issue.
