Surprise, surprise: Maher defends Ingraham

Sometimes reality is stranger than fiction. For instance, liberal Bill Maher defending conservative Laura Ingraham.

Over the weekend, the ‘Real Time’ host came out against the proposed advertising boycott Laura Ingraham’s television program.

Some quick background on the whole issue: Ingraham tweeted out a message essentially mocking Hogg after he said was rejected by several colleges. Hogg retaliated by calling for advertisers to drop the Ingraham show.

Of course, several companies capitulated to the 17-year-old. But Fox News put out a message saying they were staying with Ingraham despite the hullabaloo. 

Anyway, Maher essentially said Friday night that despite what Ingraham said, she still has the right to do so, with the First Amendment and all. He goes on to make the same argument that many have been making since the whole thing started. David Hogg has the right to be heard just as much as Laura Ingraham does just as much as Joe Scarborough or Rachel Maddow does.

Almost on cue and as expected the other three members of Maher’s panel vehemently disagree with the host.

Gotta wonder how they would feel if someone tried to silence them?

Fox News releases statement on Laura Ingraham, to stand behind her

It appears David Hogg has failed…at least for the moment.

Following last week’s brouhaha where Laura Ingraham tweeted a rather dumb message about Hogg being rejected from college, advertisers began dropping like flies, at Hogg’s urging. You know, because Ingraham said something Hogg didn’t like and deserved to be silenced.

After the dustup, Ingraham tweeted a message of apology.

But receiving an apology from Ingraham was never the goal. Instead, Hogg stated he wanted an apology from the entire network.  Big surprise, I know. A leftist given an inch and trying to take a mile.

Anyway, some thought Ingraham’s show would actually be taken off the air due to the action’s of a 17-year-old and a few companies willing to happily submit to a high school student’s demands. Virtue signaling at its best…or worst, I guess.

Anyway, Fox News put out a message Monday stating that Ingraham’s show isn’t going anywhere.

While not a big fan of Ingraham, silencing her or anyone else for that matter because they refuse to going along with the in vogue opinion of the day isn’t a good precedent.

Rachel Maddow has every right to be heard. Chris Hayes has every right to be heard. Heck, even David Hogg has the right to be heard.

However, at this point it appears that Hogg’s crusade to silence those who aren’t in complete and total agreement with him has failed.

Just don’t let him or CNN know.

Advertisers bend to the will of a high school student

Advertisers are caving and bending to the will of a high school student.

Yesterday, conservative radio and Fox News host, Laura Ingraham, tweeted out a message about Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg being rejected from college.

That’s what she tweeted. Nothing less, nothing more.

Was it the smartest thing to do? Probably not. But it’s not awful.

Well, Mr. Hogg, liberal hero of the moment, was incredibly offended. Not only demanding an apology from Ingraham, but he started going after her advertisers.

And you know what, those companies began caving, giving into the demands of a high school student.

But the story doesn’t stop there. Ingraham apologized for her “insensitive” tweet. However, that turned out not to be enough for Hogg, he is now demanding an apology from an entire network.

Yes, the same kid that said Sen. Marco Rubio had blood on his hands, that also said radio host Dana Loesch was a propagandist for the NRA and calling her disgusting, wants an apology from entire network.

I understand he’s been through a horrible, horrible thing. But this kid is taking his 15 minutes a little far. You can’t accuse a sitting senator of being directly responsible for the deaths of 17 people and then claim the moral high ground, demanding an apology.

Seriously, is  where we are in 2018? If so, it’s a sad, sad place.

‘Conservative’ Trump proposes skipping due process, grabbing guns

In case you didn’t know, Donald J. Trump is not a conservative. Yes, he may have an “R” by his name, but the man is not a conservative.

Don’t believe me? Still insist that the man currently occupying the Oval Office is a conservative? Ok, but just take some time and take a gander at the little clip below.

Still think the man who “wants to take the guns first” and “skip due process and take the the guns,” is a conservative?

In what world, besides that of Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Kimberly Guilfoyle and anyone else entirely sold out to Trump, is gun grabbing a conservative position? The truth is, it simply is not.

What Trump is proposing in this clip is gun grabbing. Gun grabbing is the very thing so many Trump supporters said and feared Hillary would do if she became president. It’s the very thing so many Trump supporters told us that Obama wanted to do.

Now, what Pence was articulating before Trump jumped in and decided to say one of the most asinine things ever, was the conservative position. You know, adhering to the law, working with law enforcement and the courts and not going around the law, doing whatever pleases President Trump.

“But, but…Trump was our only choice. He was so much better than Hillary.” Well, not so much, remember there was Rubio, Cruz, Bush, Kasich, Christie, Huckabee, Carson, Paul, Walker, Sanctorum, Fiorina, Jindal and Graham.

Also, something else to remember that was said over and over by many a Trump supporter: “Hillary was “gunna take ‘er guns!”  Now, President Trump has actually verbalized taking guns…without even duue process.

Not a conservative, not by a long shot.
