Libs demand citizenship test for political speech, but not for voting



Liberals are the first to reject the idea that voters should have to prove their citizenship or even their identity when they come to vote. They say it will lead to voter suppression. They say it will confuse blacks and Hispanics, who liberals constantly maintain have the timidity of jack rabbits and the intellectual fortitudes of five year olds.

But when it comes to political speech, liberals are now demanding that citizenship be proven. Facebook, led by liberal Mark Zuckerberg ("Mr. Sugermountain"), are now requiring those who wish to post political ads on Facebook to prove their "identity and location", in effect, to prove they are American citizens. Mr. Sugermountain doesn't seem worried about suppressing political speech here; Mr. Sugarmountain doesn't worry that blacks and Hispanics will be disproportionately deterred from buying political ads; it seems that minorities are deemed to have greater saavy when exercising political speech rather than voting.

But it doesn't take a Harvard dropout like Mr. Sugermountain to realize that Facebook's new rules are more for show than results. Facebook would love to ban ads from foreign sources which attack liberal candidates. But there is really no way to police them.

Let me give you an example. Suppose Russia wants to spend $500,000 on Facebook ads showing Nancy Pelosi engaged in repeated "brain freezes" during one of her recent press conferences or Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner, and Eric Schneiderman speaking out about Democrats' commitment to women's issues. Russia could simply get an American to create a dummy PAC or dummy company and funnel the money through him. Facebook would never know the source of the money because it would be dealing with the shell company run by the American who was hired by Russia.

The fact is that in an age with an open internet it is impossible to ban speech from other countries. The only answer to "bad" speech is more speech.

Liberals object to proving one's identity before voting because they benefit from voter fraud. But liberals see no "chilling effect" in proving one's identity before buying political ads because liberals think the measure might prove to their benefit.

It's not ideal for Russia to exercise political speech in our elections, but then again our system of political speech is not exactly fair to begin with. The power of political speech is disproportionately wielded by ABC, NBC, CBS, Reuters, the Associated Press, The New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and Fox News, all of whom, except for Fox, are far left. The political speech exercised by the New York Times alone is more powerful than the speech of thousands of bloggers. How, then, is that fair?

The answer is, of course, that it is not and there is no way it ever can be. The solution, if there is one, is to allow as much speech as possible, and hope that good ideas will win out over bad ones, even if the bad ones have more money behind them. It's happened before, when Ronald Reagan won election and reelection against a uniformly hostile media, and it happened again, when Donald Trump got elected.

It's funny to see liberals' disparate views on voter verification and political free speech, depending on what they think will benefit their candidates the most.

Guess what 44 million people want to see a black man do on Youtube


Donald Glover is enjoying his five minutes of fame. The actor/writer/rapper, gaining national attention for playing Lando Calrissian in the upcoming "Solo" Star Wars film, released a rap music video where he portrayed black people as being violent, impulsive, animalistic, and victims of America and the "gun culture", all at the same time. Glover's video, entitled "This is America", which has gotten over 44 million views on Youtube as of this writing, features a topless Glover dancing to horrendously bad music with other black people while, from time to time, murdering his fellow dancers with different kinds of firearms.

"White racism" allegedly causing minorities to catch Gonorrhea


Studies have shown that minorities have much higher incidence of Gonorrhea and Clamydia than white people. Whenever there is a racial disparity in anything, whether it is income, housing, or test scores, white racism is to blame. Therefore it is no surprise that the LA Times is blaming the "Gonorrhea gap" on white racism.

Surge of illegal border crossings corresponds with Trump's mass amnesty offer


There has been a surge of illegal aliens crossing our southern border. A caravan of over 1000 illegals from Central America are trying to enter the country on Easter alone. Breitbart, perhaps one of the strongest supporters of President Trump in the media, finds a direct correlation between the time Trump offered amnesty to 1.8 million illegal aliens and the increasing surge across the border.

Trump's surrender to Dems could cause impeachment, primary challenge


President Trump's decision to sign the spending bill which funds nearly all the Democrat's priorities but gives nothing for border security or reducing domestic spending has disheartened many of his supporters. Even his base on sites like Breitbart are turning against the President, in view of many of the critical comments there. Some people like Ann Coulter think that Trump is depressing his own base, which could reduce GOP turnout in the 2018 Congressional elections and hand the House of Representatives to the Democrats.
