Stepping In The Depp-ity-Do

You know, at some point the “free speech” of those allegedly practicing it really does stumble and fall face-first into the “shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded theater”, and purposely so.

Johnny Depp is not aging well, in mind as well as body. He’s such a Che loving idiot I imagine his idea of ‘democracy’ is only in-line with his political ideals and anything outside that deserves the firing squad wall in the public square, a la Che and Fidel.

This smug elitist hasn’t even resided in the US for several years and last I heard he was bugging out of his digs in France a couple years ago under the high taxing socialist French president at that time. The came The incident on the plane with his dogs… ain’t nobody more boldly self-entitled than a filthy rich celebrity calling for the death of an elected POTUS. Perhaps Depp was calling on the ‘revolutionary’ services of a struggling actor. Then Depp would step in and spew his lies to the media about Trump and his hateful racist bigoted supporters rightfully driving the poor slob to murder him.

I believe Depp has a new flick about to hit the summer box offices, which have not been good thus far. Does he imagine the old trope of “no bad publicity” really holds up these days? I mean, does he seriously believe this sort of media and social media attention will drive people to the overpriced movie theaters to chomp popcorn while staring up at yet another chapter of his patented doddering drunken pirate portrayal? Actors and Hollywood STILL fair to understand why Americans think very little of them, and paid them and their political pandering for Hillary Clinton only enough attention to give a scoffing cheap laugh at their expense.

They also fail to see this is exactly why Trump was elected, and why the GOP is 5-0 in the special elections in various states to replace Congressional butts in DC seats.

Willful ignorance has become a limo-lib-elite character flaw to the acute mental condition that now calls for death to anyone that does not believe what/how they believe. PDJT beheading photo-shoots, Central Park theatrical stunt at warping Shakespeare into a Trump assassination … and now this bullshit…

FEAR AND LOATHING Johnny Depp jokes about KILLING Donald Trump at Glastonbury 2017, asking ‘when was the last time an actor assassinated a President?’ – Scruffy star, 54, makes reference to Lincoln’s killer during rambling introduction at Glasto event

But then in front of the 1500 strong crowd he said: “I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go.

“It is just a question – I’m not insinuating anything.

“By the way, this is going to be in the press. It will be horrible. I like that you are all a part of it.

“When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?

“I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living.

“However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”

Well, he got the ‘lie for a living’ part right. Apparently Depp brings his work home with him at night.

Anyhow, it’s not going over well, that stab at “there’s no ‘bad’ publicity” for Depp’s self-inflicted wounding as he is being verbally beaten for the strongly suggestive comments.

Rightfully so, the White House has chimed in

A White House official said Friday: “President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead. I hope that some of Mr. Depp’s colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official.”

Well, yeah. And all this just one short week after the mass assassination attempt on GOP Congressmen and those accompanying them at a public baseball field.

The South Rises Up and Brings Victories for the GOP

Again, the democrats, MSM, and Hollywood idiots believed the polls, and
the GOP is now 4-0 in contested special elections:

The democrats and their lib/leftist minions, especially in Hollywood, were looking for some degree of moral victory (morals ain’t something the dems/libs/left are familiar with) and they did not get it by the end of voting last night in Georgia and South Carolina. In GA06 a record millions of dollars, much from outside the state, were funneled into the Ossoff campaign…

And, of course, it was ‘close’, according to the MSM and the democrats, but were it a win for the dem contender with the same margin they’d be claiming it a resounding referendum on Trump … but, GOP, don’t you dare claim it such with your win(s)…

Gingrich: Democrats said Georgia was a referendum on Trump. They’re right – Trump won

And while some democrats with more than two brain cells to rub together get it, that they’re doing it ALL wrong…

Democrats Seethe After Georgia Loss: ‘Our Brand Is Worse Than Trump’

Most have denied science and thrown those brain cells out like so much marijuana ash…

The little puke who didn’t even live in the district he was running in, who had the active support of some of Hollywood’s biggest mouths going door-to-door in said district for him, and brought in a record millions of dollars in donations (99% from outside the state) is now boo-hooing money in politics…

Opioids Aside: This Nation has a Growing Hate Addiction

The domestic terror attack (notice you are not hearing the democrats/liberals/MSM calling it that) on the GOP baseball team in Washington a few days ago saw a very brief moment of unity on the floor of the House as republicans and democrats took to the microphones to announce this horrific crime would not tear us apart. Oh, and moments after the attack, before the yellow police investigation tape was finished being tied off around the practice field, the media insisted on announcing the democrats had piously (my word from my personal interpretation … Comey-like, dontcha know) taken a knee on their own practice field to say a prayer (it’s okay if/when they do it, you know). All lovely pontifications and flowery sentiments flowing from member after member from both sides of the political aisle. And yes, they played the traditional baseball game last night. But at some very intimidate point the Kumbaya unity facade dropped from the left and the MSM and, yes of course, the democrats

Nancy Pelosi: ‘Outrageous’ for Republicans to blame Democrats for heated rhetoric

After Scalise shooting, Nancy Pelosi blames Fox News for violent threats against her

Day after shooting, Pelosi blasts ‘sanctimonious’ Republicans

AoSHQ: “Two-Faced Pelosi Holds Olive Branch in One Hand, Revolver in the Other”

Nancy Pelosi would like us all to forget Politics Of Personal Destruction was created by and practiced by the Clintons.

Given that the continuing examples of democrat-supporting leftists/liberals attacking conservatives is being revealed and added to, Nancy Pelosi must be realizing it can no longer be ignored and can/will not be good for them politically going forward, especially if such attacks continue and escalate in severity. Pelosi’s concern is that the GOP will dare use this in coming elections. Pelosi refuses to acknowledge her party always politicizes and uses such episodes for fundraising. For example, Bernie Sanders did such after the Gabby Giffords shooting in 2011. But according to Pelosi and her ilk the GOP had better not dare tie any of these violent political attacks to their party’s wagon.

On the heels of the NYTimes being called-out and thrashed for their libel against Sarah Palin in an Op-Ed after this recent near-deadly attack the MSM continues its own branch of deception and manipulation, for example…

CNN’s video of ‘the Democratic team’ gathering for a pre-game prayer is half-true, at least

The fact is, Republicans and Democrats kneeled and prayed on second base (Rep. Steve Scalise’s team position) before last night’s charity baseball game. But CNN did NOT want those viewing or reading their Twitter account to know that.

But as I was pointing out, democrat unity and restraint has a very ADHD-like endurance…

Congressional staffers boo Trump at unity baseball game

Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.

Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it.

One man shouted an expletive at the video screen as Mr. Trump was telling the fans: “We are showing the world we will not be intimidated by threats.”

The episode marred what had been a night celebrating those wounded in Wednesday’s murderous attack on GOP players practicing for the game.

When both teams went to second base — the symbolic spot where Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded in the attack at the Alexandria practice field — to kneel and pray, some mocked the prayer, too. The fans appeared to be Democratic staffers, having booed the announcement of several members of the GOP lineup.

Were they admonished by the democrat members they work for? Doubtful. You see, the democrats/libs/left ALWAYS fallback on “The First Amendment” when such ugliness as that displayed last night by the staffers, and in a murderous play in the park, and a has-been comedian takes a photo holding the bloody severed head of the POTUS.

This country has managed to morph together 1984 and Animal Farm.

Are we as lowly as now being expressed on social media? Has the moral compass of this great nation not only been broken but crushed under the heel of those who would invite chaos and destruction of the foundation of our country that has been envied and feared for generations? Have we allowed our self to become weakened to the point of self-destruction … suicide? Do we understand that we are witnessing the ugly underbelly of what the last century’s social deconstruction on all levels has created? Most importantly are we redeemable … are we worthy of redemption? Do we realize only we can repair this, but only if we refuse the constant injections and addiction of allowing others to think for us by spinning some thing that even Orwell would’ve been horrified by…

The Scalise Shooting Is Teaching Us Things About Ourselves That We Ought Not To Like

Last night I made the mistake of perusing the Facebook page of Rep. Steve Scalise, and reading comments left under the medical updates following the Scalise shooting therein.
What I found, amid the majority of messages from well-wishers and prayers it should be said, was horrifying.

Many of these contain some pretty salty language…

[…]

There were others, lots of them. And again, they weren’t the majority of the comments left on Scalise’s update threads; the majority constituted a passionate outpouring of goodwill.

But as we’ve catalogued here at The Hayride, there have been far, far more outbursts of vitriol directed at a man fighting for his life in a hospital after being shot in an attempted political assassination than anyone could have imagined.

Why? Why are there so many people attempting to pour insult upon injury in this case?

[…]

As I was stumbling upon the attacks above, a famous quote by John Adams kept echoing in my mind…

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

Are we still a moral and religious people? I think most of us are. Clearly less of us fit that description than in the past. I would be willing to say the disgusting and vile utterings of the slobs captured above are an indication that foundation has cracks…

It is a very good read. Please read in full. I have noticed the unhinged ugliness on Twitter.

As to the tone and tenor of rhetoric in the nation, expectations for bringing it down to a civil level is one-sided, the left/dems being permitted to continue and make advances while shutting-up conservatives/republican speech. It’s how they roll…

Hospital Updates Rep. Steve Scalise Condition

GOP House Whip Steve Scalise remains in critical condition after shooting at baseball practice

Hospital Releases Update On Rep. Scalise’s Condition; Details Injuries

Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center. He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.

The Hill:

President Trump said Thursday that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) is “in some trouble” following the shooting Wednesday at a GOP congressional baseball practice in Virginia.

“It’s been much more difficult than people even thought at the time,” Trump said Thursday at the start of a White House event on apprenticeship.

“He’s in some trouble, but he’s a great fighter and he’s going to be OK, we hope.”

Scalise had another surgery Thursday, his third procedure since being admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, ABC News and other outlets reported.

Orwellian Indeed: New York Times Blames Sarah Palin for GOP Baseball Team Shooting

We are in a very dark era of the American MSM not being their originally stated purpose of being a “watchdog” for the people, to the MSM being a propaganda machine, especially for the left/progressive/democrat party/agenda in this country.

After a strident thrashing response on social media to the NYTimes latest bullshit,, said publication rag has since ‘corrected’ its “error”, but the public ain’t buying it.

You see, the liberal media has become that TV/movie smarmy defense lawyer that gets slapped continually throughout a trial with objections, that then judge then sustains, and then smirks because said lawyer’s intent is to taint the jury with an indelible false perception. We, of course, are the jury of public opinion. In that practice the Times has dragged out a completely debunked, and now pushed-false premise … baldfaced lie … that Sarah Palin’s political map with line-of-site markings on it caused Jared Loughner to shoot then Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords and several others at an outdoor townhall in 2011.

By the way, it was only mentioned once, then tucked away, that Palin’s political map was not using a gun sight cross-hairs, but a land surveyor’s scope site marking like these…

(**Oh, and be sure to see a related tweet below)

Here is the piece that was hurried to press by the NYTimes eager to

1. deliberately deflect attention, responsibility, and blame away from

a. the shooter, communist-progressive Bernie supporter James Hodgkinson

b. and the fact that the left has been committing these politically motivated acts of violence and death, especially during the election campaign cycle when Trump supporters attending rallies were physically attacked and brutalized, to moments after the election was called for Trump when these assholes took to the streets to riot under the guise of protest, to the violence and arson going on on campuses under the guise of protests whenever a conservative is scheduled to speak there, to stabbings by another Bernie supporter to this guy yesterday (not to mention such rhetoric calling for GOP/conservatives/Trump voters-supporters to be beaten/shot/killed/etc)

c. and put the blame on the GOP by way of the bullshit Sarah Palin premise.
