Anti-Trumpism Is Killing Hot Air And Other Right Wing Blogs


Eight years ago Obamaism killed the Left Wing blogs. Many of them are still there, but their credibility is gone. Objective reality and the use of logic and reason fell victim to Koolaid intoxication. All because of Obama.

Now the Right Wing blogosphere is disintegrating in much the same way, all because of Anti-Trumpism (aka “Trump Derangement Syndrome”).

Here is an example from Taylor Millard at Hot Air:

No First Amendment rights were trampled on in Chicago

Donald Trump is wrong for thinking supporters had their freedom of speech rights violated because his Chicago rally was canceled by protesters. Freedom of speech is one of the foundations of America. It’s something people cling to as a basic right of existence, except when they’re trying to silence those who disagree with them (hi SJW’s). But the notion the free speech rights of Trump supporters were infringed upon because of the protesters outside is laughable and simply not true. The First Amendment says so (emphasis mine).

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Section One of the 14th Amendment expands the Bill of Rights to state and local governments, but says nothing about an unruly mob trying to protest outside a political event. John may disagree with me on this, and I see where he’s coming from, but the Constitution is clear: the government can’t stop events. But this doesn’t mean the anti-Trump protesters are free and clear to simply barge into any event or home they see fit. Michigan Congressman Justin Amash points out how protesters do face consequences for hijacking rallies, especially if they’re private events.

So there you have it. Protesters are more than welcome to yell and scream until they commit a crime. Simply protesting outside an event, and forcing its cancelation, isn’t a violation of free speech. It’s simply using the First Amendment to protest against someone people don’t agree with. It’s like the Trump supporter deciding to throw up the Nazi salute to counter-protest the anti-Trump supporters: completely constitutional and not a violation of the First Amendment. It also means Trump can send supporters to try to shut down the next Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton rally, even if they might face charges of trespassing or assault if they attack someone. But for him to suggest otherwise is ludicrous and shows he either a) hasn’t read the Constitution or b) doesn’t care.

Wow! Stupid should hurt. The quality of writing at Hot Air has really declined of late.

Freedom of speech is a natural right enumerated (but not created) by the First Amendment. The concept of natural rights is the foundation of our whole system. it’s implied in the very language Millard quoted:

“Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble . . “

You can’t abridge what doesn’t exist. It doesn’t say “the people shall have the right” it says that Congress shall not take that right away.

Trump’s First Amendment rights may not have been violated, but his right to free speech certainly WAS violated. So were the rights of assembly and association. So what do people do when their rights are being violated by other people? They turn to the government to protect and enforce those rights.

That is why government can regulate the “time, place and manner” of speech. Anything else is mob rule.

Unfortunately, the government of late has refused to enforce the rights of all citizens in favor of a small but vocal subset who are allowed to do things like block roads and malls and disrupt assemblies featuring speakers they don’t like.

Then they wonder why the people who are being silenced and whose lives are being disrupted get angry and lose respect for the rule of law.

If it’s gonna be mob rule then the biggest mob rules.

why we love trump

    What would the progs do if Trump dressed trans like the picture above? Makes me laugh to think of all the heads exploding.

    Society has infantilized women, minorities, college kids, LGBT, etc. They’re all helpless babies that have gotten used to being coddled. The Dems in general are mommy enabling this behavior. Bernie represents gramps swooping in to pay for everything so they can keep being babied. Trump represents daddy coming home to make them grow up and get a job. Daddy is a threat.

        The German shrinks said it is too much “comfort” thus people cannot deal with any type of adversity or even be irked without falling apart. Part of their brains close down and don’t fire up properly. Then any little thing sets them off like they are being circled by wolves or something. In evolutionary biology they should have already been eaten by a critter so the tribe doesn’t have to feed them. In other words they are useless. The rest of the tribe don’t have time for this shit.

She has to have it on her desktop or laptop. Her kindle and phone won’t work. I can clear all her stuff off laptop but I don’t want to spend 60 on a program that won’t run. She has an HPStream. How much space does she need. I can buy her a better laptop. Stream is very low end.

      Ann Romney needs to sit her husband down and tell him it’s time to give up his presidential politics hobby.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Had the establishment gotten behind Mitt as hard as they’re trying to take down Trump, he may have won 2012. I can’t figure out the pile on this year, just weird.

        • Somebody says:

          Trump threatens the status quo, the monied. They expect to have bought and paid for puppets and he’s trying to screw that up.

          Did anyone happen to watch the political “insiders” last night with Harris Faulkner? The former NY congressman straight up said that a lot of people have invested a lot of money and no matter the votes Trump is not going to be POTUS, it won’t be allowed. He and the other 2 agreed that the person that will actually be POTUS is not yet in the race.

          WTF?? So they think we’re all going to sit down and take our medicine. That we’re going to to say……”Thank you overlords, you do know better than us”. These people were dead serious……Hillary has too many “issues”, I took to mean criminal issues with her emails and they kept mentioning her negatives. They also kept talking about Trump’s negatives and that he’s racist and is inciting violence. So therefore neither can be POTUS. Neither can be POTUS because if either were it would tear the country apart, so some other person is going to enter the race and become POTUS.

          I guess we’ll all know when the bat signal goes up??? Call me cynical, but to my mind whoever the hell this supposed savior is, the only thing I will see when I look at them is that they are bought and paid for 100%.

          • taw46 says:

            I have watched the political insiders for 2-3 years now. They have always talked about how corrupt our government has become and both parties putting themselves before the country. Months ago, they talked about possibility of someone else jumping into the race (not being selected). They spoke positively about Trump focusing on issues people cared about, but last few weeks said he needed to turn to reminding people it was about them, not so much focus on himself and personal attacks. That he could win easily if he did that.

            Last night was the first time I saw John LeBoutillier that way, outraged about Trump. He sounded like NRO. He sounds like he is now all in with the GOPe. There is no one left to fight for us, smh.

          • lildoggy4u says:

            For the life of me I could not watch any of these newsy talk shows spit out theories and crap at night time. I don’t know how you do it and sleep. I guess I keep myself about as informed as anyone could by reading. I cannot possibly handle listening to pundits trying to find angles to talk about so that they can have conversations different from whatever else is on other shows. They all make me sick to my stomach. Just the facts please, no opinions, I have my own.

      More like: I’m resigning before I get fired.

      Ben Shapiro has done more to ruin the legacy of Andrew Breitbart than any of his enemies could have.

  23. Somebody says:

    The meme of the day is that Ted Cruz is surging. However, if you dig past the headline you see he’s still 10 points behind Trump in Florida, he’s 3rd in Ohio, and he’s behind Trump in the other states too. Completely misleading headlines, shocking I know.

    • Venus says:

      Maybe the fix is in and Cruz will have miracle wins tomorrow due to the “surge” with “late deciders going to Cruz because of the SCENES OF VIOLENCE at Trump rallies.”

      Yes, I know, I’ve got my tinfoil hat on — tomorrow we’ll know if my crazy is justified.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m expecting some surprise wins too. Kasich, Cruz and Rubio turned into Democrats last Friday night which means the duopoly party is alive and well.

  24. DeniseVB says:

    I wonder why they only go after Trump supporters ? I don’t see any other candidates’ supporters, from both parties, being harassed ? Well, it’s not working😉

        I don’t know, I had a really good friend who used to make slips like that in some uncomfortable situations. e.g. When speaking by phone with one of her psych patients who had just had a mastectomy, and was hoping to offer support, she said, “Well, I was hoping you were okay. If there is any way I can be helpful, I want yo to call me. Please keep me abreast of your recovery.”
        That is only one of several instances that she put her foot into her mouth. She was the best friend I ever had. She never failed to make me smile.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Trump has been in the news for over 40 years, some good coverage, some bad. I think he understands the media more than anybody and let’s face it, we hate the “lyin’ media” too. We know he’s right when he says I’m fair to the media when they’re fair to me.

      He seems to have a good rapport with the media at his pressers. Answers about 45 questions per session compared to Obama answering 4 in the same amount of time.

  28. Myiq2xu says:

  29. DeniseVB says:

    Here’s a local reporter covering Bernie’s Kids protesting a Trump rally in NC. Her timeline is gag worthy= peaceful, loving protesters my ass.

  30. taw46 says:

    I did not read much in way of news yesterday. So I have a serious question. Did Cruz, Rubio, Kasich come out strongly against attempted attack on Trump in Ohio? I haven’t seen that anywhere.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I must have missed it too. I think they’re jealous nobody rushes their podiums, yawn. I’m sure they’re thinking Trump provoked that kid to rush him.

      • Lulu says:

        All three, Cruz, Rube and Kat-sick, sided with LaRaza and CAIR who sent the protesters. The college protesters didn’t have anything better to do on a Friday night and find “slumming” exciting. My recent-ish college graduate daughter said the more elite the university the more drawn to “slumming” they are and a large part of it is drug purchasing.

        • taw46 says:

          Yes, I know they all did that Friday night. But my question is about the man who attempted to jump on the stage in Ohio and was stopped by Secret Service. That is dangerous, all should come out forcefully against that. Haven’t seem any of them do so. Haven’t seem them condemn CNN for glorifying the man. Maybe I missed it.

          • Lulu says:

            After the blow back they all got from going anti-free speech and anti-free assembly and association I figure they decided to zip it for a while.

          • taw46 says:

            Lulu, you are probably right. But not a good look for them.

          • Somebody says:

            The only thing I’ve seen in response to that was Kasich saying that Trump’s rhetoric incites that kind of violence and it wasn’t unexpected. I have no idea if the other two said similar things, but I’d be willing to bet they did, because they all seem to be singing off the same song sheet.

        • taw46 says:

          Drugs and “slumming”. Makes sense.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          When UC Merced kids want to go “slumming” they just come into town.

  31. DeniseVB says:

    Never mind the righty bloggers, journalism is dead. Period. Here’s another at the NC rally…this idiot can’t figure out why supporters show up hours and hours early at a Trump event.

    • Lulu says:

      The protesters are not that “industrious”. And besides they don’t get up that early.

      One of the things I noticed on the protests in Chicago was when they were covering the parking garage egress of the rally attendees being blocked by the mob. For a bunch of hick, low class, red neck, hill billy, racist, trailer park goobers they all drove, it seemed to me, luxury SUV’s. We are talking expensive wheels here. Average cost maybe $65,000 with a few cheapo Honda’s thrown in. Tricked out Suburbans, Lexus wagons, Escalades, Land Rovers, etc and many hands sticking out shooting the bird at the “protestors”. The media is desperately trying to portray the revolt of the unwashed ignoranti but it is not lining up with what they are driving. The protestors ride the bus, the rally attendees are in luxury SUVs and $50,000 work pick up trucks . Telling a guy in a bought and paid for Land Rover that he is ignorant white trash and should sit down and shut up is not going to work.

      • Somebody says:

        I noticed the vehicles too Lulu, didn’t seem very white trash to me. A lot of minivans in the mix along with SUV’s, that to me screams middle America.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Good point, but they don’t have to do anything but get their free rally ticket at the eventbrite site. Most of the anti-Trump groups advertise his rallies and link to the tickets.

        And yes, that’s a troubling trend with Trump supporters …. they seem to be actual contributing members to society. Damn them.😛

        • Lulu says:

          Since the Trump rally attendees are all trashy I kept waiting for junker cars and a bunch of bums wandering to the bus stops or the subway. Didn’t happen. I kept thinking How can this be? Where are the Confederate flags and beer coolers with attached tackle boxes? There were Trump “gimme caps” which are really golf hats (most people don’t know the difference which is usually an ad for a feed store or tractor brand-my husband is up-town as he wears Texas Farm Bureau gimme’s as he is a chemistry consultant for them or he wears sometimes a UT baseball cap if he is really fancy). It was really a rather prosperous looking bunch of trashy people. They even wore shoes.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I’m sure most of them drove in from the ‘burbs. It’s a shame, for nothing. I saw where people started thanking them for giving up their evening for a non-event, and they were the only true patriots and brave citizens of the night.

      • swanspirit says:

        ” besides, they don’t get up that early.”
        That is really funny. Made me laugh out loud. When I was doing home care nursing, if I had to visit a patient in a questionable, or definitely bad neighborhood, they were scheduled for early morning visits, because it was safer.
        Many a morning I was getting in my car and leaving , just as the streets were becoming more populated. I could usually get in at least two visits, very safely.

      • elliesmom says:

        The problem the New Black Panthers have is neither Bernie or Hillary is a candidate they would normally “protect”. The original goal of the Panthers was to “police the police”. None of the candidates are anti-police enough for the original Panthers anyway. They showed up for Obama, well, because. The BLM folks latched onto Bernie’s supporters Friday night because Bernie’s folks are useful idiots, not because the BLM folks are fully out there for Sanders.

  39. Somebody says:

    I wonder why the MSM didn’t accuse Lil Marco of inciting violence??? Apparently this happened back during the Virginia primary. You can tell because he doesn’t draw crowds like that now.

  40. DeniseVB says:

    I’m sure this is a true story😉

    • Lulu says:

      It is true in Texas too. My favorite local example is the community of illegals who bought a flood prone scrubby couple of acres just out of the city limits. They built some lean-tos in the shrubbery off the road. They parked on the dirt tract (old logging road) and hoofed it in to their shanties. Their kids are just in one of the most taxed and expensive highly rated school districts in Texas. The taxes on the entire property are about $30 a YEAR.

      They first demanded several school bus runs. On a dirt track logging road. The ISD said no. Then came the flood. It is flood plain where they built their shanties but they couldn’t tell by the big creek and swamp plants growing there. A wash of about 40 feet opened up the logging road so they have to park near the highway and walk a quarter mile. They demanded a BRIDGE! Since there is no declared housing called “improvements” and the USPS doesn’t have an address for them the county said a bridge to WHAT? A f-ing gully. Then they wanted trash collection but the county doesn’t provide trash collection. So they just throw it on the highway and the poor jail inmates have to go pick it up. Next they, I kid you not, wanted mass transit. Like bus service. Or maybe airline shuttles. Who the hell knows. They have about 40 cars for 40 people so why the need for mass transit is unknown. And all the while they tell the local newspaper “why you so mean?” And of course no one will admit to employing them. It is really pathetic. They are worse off than if they were in Mexico.
