And… They’ve Learned Nothing.

The media spin on President Elect Donald J. Trump’s sit down with the New York Times on November 22, can only be described as dishonest. Trump appears to soften stance on climate change & Donald Trump backflips on climate change & Trump on climate change in major U-turn
The ‘fake news’ that Trump had somehow moderated or changed his “global warming” views was not supported by the full transcript of the meeting.

Sunday Evening Comedy

Thanks to a tip from C_Miner, here is 30 minutes of pure delight, watching the smug, arrogant Young Turks coverage of the 2016 Presidential Campaign. Then fun starts about 3 minutes in but do watch it from the beginning and see the smiles wiped off of the face of Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and their minions. Also pay attention to Uygur’s anger & swearing go from 1 to 11 in mere minutes. It’s a beautiful thing!

Imagine being in a relationship with one of these conceited, pompous, self-righteous, egotistical snobs. How could you EVER have a reasonable discussion?!
Around 17 minutes in, Uygur threatens to tour the Red States and teach people there how to think. Just envision how that’s going to work.

Steve Bannon vs. the Media Party

Anyone who chooses to look beyond the headlines, knows fully well that media outlets “bend the truth” to their point of view. This is often done through obfuscation (leaving out facts) rather than outright lying. But post-election, it has become very clear that many “journalists” have decided to discard their ethics and professionalism entirely by stating that Trump’s special advisor, Steve Bannon, is an anti-semite. This is simply the opposite of the truth!
Finally Bannon has spoken out in a feature length interview with Kimberley Strassel:

He continues: “How can you take anything seriously from a media apparatus–paid the amount of money you people are paid–that systematically missed something that was so obvious, that missed Brexit, that missed the Trump revolution? You’d have thought they’d have learned their lesson on November 8.”
Slight pause. “They clearly haven’t.”
Anti-Semitic? “Breitbart is the most pro-Israel site in the United States of America. I have Breitbart Jerusalem, which I have Aaron Klein run with about 10 reporters there. We’ve been leaders in stopping this BDS movement”–meaning boycott, divestment and sanctions–“in the United States; we’re a leader in the reporting of young Jewish students being harassed on American campuses; we’ve been a leader on reporting on the terrible plight of the Jews in Europe.” He adds that given his many Jewish partners and writers, “guys like Joel Pollak, these claims of anti-Semitism just aren’t serious. It’s a joke.”

Are Democrats Capable of Dropping their Identity Silos and Treating Everyone Equally?

A Columbia University Humanities Professor, Mark Lilla, has written a very interesting column called The End of Identity Liberalism. Ignore the obvious shots at Trump & Republicans, remembering what audience he is primarily trying to reach. To Leftists, who have been deeply indoctrinated in the propaganda of Identity Politics for many decades now – younger ones know nothing else – Lilla makes a compelling argument about why this must come to an abrupt halt if the Democrats have any hope of rising from the ashes.

One of the many lessons of the recent presidential election campaign and its repugnant outcome is that the age of identity liberalism must be brought to an end. Hillary Clinton was at her best and most uplifting when she spoke about American interests in world affairs and how they relate to our understanding of democracy. But when it came to life at home, she tended on the campaign trail to lose that large vision and slip into the rhetoric of diversity, calling out explicitly to African-American, Latino, L.G.B.T. and women voters at every stop. This was a strategic mistake. If you are going to mention groups in America, you had better mention all of them. If you don’t, those left out will notice and feel excluded. Which, as the data show, was exactly what happened with the white working class and those with strong religious convictions. Fully two-thirds of white voters without college degrees voted for Donald Trump, as did over 80 percent of white evangelicals.

While some of the commenters are too far gone to grasp the author’s message, many did. Here are some examples:

Is Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth” about to come online?

Pop Quiz: During the recent U.S. Presidential Election Campaign, which media outlets chose to regurgitate falsehoods rather than strive to adhere to some reasonable semblance of the truth? If you’re a regular reader of SDA then you very well know who would be at the top of that list.
This is beyond frightening if it comes to pass:

(Language Warning)
The list of “fake news websites” comes from one Melissa Zimdars, a devout Leftist SJW.

The MSM Continues Its Death Spiral

Anyone who thought the members of the media would have learned how incredibly wrong they were about the recent presidential election … must have been drunk. The latest proof of #TEDS (Trump Extreme Derangement Syndrome) comes from hyper-leftie, David Remnick:

The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency is nothing less than a tragedy for the American republic, a tragedy for the Constitution, and a triumph for the forces, at home and abroad, of nativism, authoritarianism, misogyny, and racism. Trump’s shocking victory, his ascension to the Presidency, is a sickening event in the history of the United States and liberal democracy. On January 20, 2017, we will bid farewell to the first African-American President–a man of integrity, dignity, and generous spirit–and witness the inauguration of a con who did little to spurn endorsement by forces of xenophobia and white supremacy. It is impossible to react to this moment with anything less than revulsion and profound anxiety.

A discussion of Remnick’s mental health can be heard here.

Dissecting the Trump Presidency

In a very detailed column, Milo Yiannopoulos outlines how various groups will be effected by Trump’s election victory:

  • Protesters
  • Hoaxers
  • Establishment Republicans
  • The Democrat Party
  • Celebrities
  • The Media
  • The Deplorables

Further to the Democrats, what do you envision will happen to this party over the next 4 years? Do you think they’ll learn their lessons and course correct or do you think they’ll steer into the skid and move even further Left?

Noam Chomsky: ‘The Republican Party Has Become the Most Dangerous Organization in World History’

Any hope that Leftists would regain their sanity and be willing to discuss issues in a reasonable manner have quickly evaporated. The latest evidence comes from Noam Chomsky in a recent interview with EcoWatch:

On Nov. 8, the most powerful country in world history, which will set its stamp on what comes next, had an election. The outcome placed total control of the government–executive, Congress, the Supreme Court–in the hands of the Republican Party, which has become the most dangerous organization in world history.

The sad thing is, sheeple the world over will buy this hyperbole without question, further dividing the Left & Right. Stop for a moment to consider what Chomsky is actually saying. He is stating, unequivocally, that the Republican Party of the United States of America is more dangerous than: Hitler’s Nazis. Lenin’s Communists, Mao’s Communists, Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge, ISIS, Al Qaeda, and a host of other truly despicable totalitarian regimes. Yet Chomsky is considered to be a brilliant thinker among disciples of Leftism. So much so that the SJWs who control Wikipedia won’t even allow a criticism section in his profile.
