Why Does the Little League World Series Discriminate?

While all sound-minded Americans await the start of college football season and the NFL, to tide us over, we are soon to have the awesome American pleasure of the Little League World Series (LLWS) to enjoy. The U.S. regionals—which determine the eight American teams (in addition to the eight international teams) in the LLWS—are complete. Today, August 17, the tournament to determine the 71st LLWS champion begins. Noticeably absent again this year: girls. Someone should write a memo.

In 1974—of course, thanks to a ruling from a female judge—the Little League Federal Charter was amended to allow girls to play Little League Baseball. Since then, by my count (with the LLWS consisting of 8 teams each year from 1974 to 2000—with only 4 in 1975—and 16 teams annually since 2001), there have been 484 teams in the LLWS. Figuring 12 players per team (there are sometimes more and rarely less), that’s at least 5,808 players in the LLWS since girls were allowed to participate.

During that time, and in spite of the fact that one in seven U.S. Little League players is a girl, only 18 girls have participated in the LLWS, including only six American girls. That means that since 1974, less than one-third of one percent of LLWS participants have been girls. All of those ignorant of human anatomy, biology, and physiology—an ever-increasing number of Americans, it seems—should be aghast.

You see, the teams participating in Little League state district or sectional tournaments, and later the nation regionals and LLWS, are made up of all-star players—the best of the best. Almost always these players are selected by the local league coaches, who are almost always men. Obviously blatant and ugly discrimination has kept hundreds of thousands (Little League is the world’s largest organized youth sports organization) of 11-to-13-year-old girls from their dream of playing in the LLWS. Someone should be fired.

And in the name of all that is “fair,” how in the world—or rather the wide-wide world of sports—has ESPN allowed itself to play a part in perpetuating the perverse patriarchy that is clearly at work in the LLWS? After all, in order to show us all how sufficiently “progressive” they are, we are talking about the media outlet who gave Bruce Jenner—one of the greatest American Olympians ever—an award for pretending to be a girl. Since 2001, ESPN has covered live LLWS games. Until girls are properly represented at the LLWS, clearly this must stop.

Additionally, when are we going to see the first “transgender boy” (a girl who has delusions that she is a boy) in the LLWS? Don’t tell me that with the recent rampant growth of “transgenderism” across the U.S. there aren’t all-star level transgender boys playing on Little League teams across the U.S. and the world. After all, we have seen that girls who are allowed to take performance-enhancing drugs like testosterone—and thus help make up the sad differences with which science has shackled girls (biology is sometimes such a bigot!)—are quite capable of competing well against boys. (As the previous link demonstrates, they dominate other girls.)

Of course this also means that “transgender girls” (delusional boys) must also be allowed to compete in Little League Softball. As this trend grows, look for biological boys to take over the ranks of the Little League Softball World Series. But hey, that’s just the breaks when one is devoted to “diversity.”

Isn’t it interesting that in the name of diversity, liberals seem to have no problem with boys taking trophies from girls? Thus, why does it bother them when men supposedly take jobs from women?

After James Damore—the “knuckle-dragging troglodyte” since fired by Google—wrote his diversity memo, aptly entitled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber,” liberals circled the wagons, donned their “social justice warrior” attire, and went after another “ignorant” white man’s scalp. As you almost certainly well know by now, Damore’s “crime” was to suggest that the “gender gap” in Google’s hiring practices (men outnumber women at Google by a more than 2 to 1 ratio) was perhaps the result of something other than “implicit and explicit biases.” Perhaps, he suggested, there are (GASP!) biological factors at work when it comes to women and the tech industry.

Long before anyone ever “Googled” anything, the facts bore this out. Women now vastly outnumber men at U.S. colleges and universities. As Newsmax recently noted, “Women currently hold almost 60 percent of all bachelor degrees, and account for almost half of students in law, medical, and business graduate programs, the [Denver] Post reported.” In spite of this, over 80 percent of computer science majors are men. This has been the trend since the early 1980s, when modern computer science became “a thing.”

What’s more, how many women garbage collectors, oil-rig workers, or auto mechanics have you seen or do you know? Notice liberals rarely, if ever, complain about the lack of “diversity” in these industries. And as I’ve noted before, and even more telling than what we see within the LLWS or virtually any other sports or employment arena, in the combined 276-year history of MLB, the NFL, and the NBA, no human being born a female has ever been a regular member of any of those leagues. Again, and in spite of the tantrums and lies of liberalism, this is biology, not bias.

On President’s Condemning Racial Violence, Some Perspective

On the protest in Charlottesville this past weekend, Pajama Media’s Roger Simon, a self-described “Jewish fella,” put it well:
[T]he types who surfaced in Charlottesville on Saturday are certainly human beings of the most repellent and disgusting sort, murderous too—pretty much violent, evil sociopaths. I wouldn’t mind if they were all rounded up, put in a space ship, and sent on a one-way trip to Alpha Centauri.
Offering some “perspective,” Mr. Simon continues,
[F]or the sake of argument, let's say there are as many as 100,000 white supremacists in America today. (This is undoubtedly a vast exaggeration, but let's use it, as I said, for the sake of argument.) 
Meanwhile, since the 1920s, our population has more than tripled to some 325 million. Using the figure of 100,000 white supremacists (not many of whom made it to Charlottesville fortunately), this puts the percentage of white supremacists in the U.S. at a puny 0.03%. Terrible people, yes, but no epidemic by any stretch of the imagination… 
More to the point, are there more of these white supremacists than members of the equally violent and disgusting Antifa movement? Again statistics are hard to come by. (Both sides like to wear masks.) But I tend to doubt it. If anything, Antifa has been far more active, until Saturday. 
Obviously, none of this is to exonerate in the slightest the human excrement that descended on Charlottesville. It's just to put them in perspective.
On President Trump’s condemnation of the violence in Charlottesville, Thomas Lifson at American Thinker offers some more perspective:
[The] critics [of President Trump’s condemnation] were going to slam the president no matter what he said or did… 
I am sorry, but maintaining that a president of the United States must shape his actions according to what the media and his critics (but I repeat myself) might say is an abject surrender. This is the standard operating procedure of Republicans pre-Trump, and it has brought us to our current mess… 
I hope and expect the president will have more to say, and while condemning Nazis, remain even-handed. I condemn everyone that seeks to oppress others on the basis of race, no matter which race is being demonized.
I, too, hope that President Trump has more to say on this matter, but then again, U.S. Presidents have often disappointed when it comes to matters involving the hate-filled violence and rhetoric of a small number of their supporters. Take the last President, for example. Whether Ferguson, Missouri (more than once), Baltimore, St. Paul, Baton Rouge, Dallas, Oakland, and so on, time and again, President Obama refused to condemn the violent racists of Black Lives Matter (BLM). On the contrary, Obama and the Democrat Party regularly encouraged the perverse cause of BLM and gave them political cover.

In spite of their regular use of violence, destruction, and racist rhetoric, in August of 2015, the Democratic National Committee passed a resolution “affirming” BLM. In July of 2016, at the funeral of five Dallas police officers murdered by a BLM-inspired racist, President Obama continued to defend the BLM movement. After the Dallas shootings, law enforcement leaders accused President Obama of helping to encourage a “war on cops.” Politico reported,
I think [the Obama administration] continued appeasements at the federal level with the Department of Justice, their appeasement of violent criminals, their refusal to condemn movements like Black Lives Matter, actively calling for the death of police officers, that type of thing, all the while blaming police for the problems in this country has led directly to the climate that has made Dallas possible,” William Johnson, the executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said in an interview with Fox on Friday morning.
Additionally, BLM has long made it clear what they were all about. As Katie Pavlich noted in 2015,
It's time to expose the Black Lives Matter [BLM] movement for what it is: a racist, violent hate group that promotes the execution of police officers. The evidence is in their rhetoric and written on their shirts.
Miss Pavlich goes on to chronicle how BLM has elevated individuals like Assata Shakur, “otherwise known as Joanne Chesimard, who shot and killed a New Jersey State Trooper back in 1973.” Last year National Review’s David French highlighted a “sickening” essay by BLM that expressed support and admiration for—in addition to Fidel Castro—Michael Finney, Ralph Goodwin, Charles Hill, and Huey Newton. All were cop killers.

French rightly asks, “How many despots and murderers must Black Lives Matter praise before it’s consigned to the fringe of American life? How many riots and murders must it incite — often through lies and hoaxes?” Not yet enough, it seems.

In spite of all of this, a single incident by White Nationalists in Virginia—with not a hint of support from President Trump or his administration—and all of a sudden the Charlottesville racists are Trump’s “people.” Of course, eager to paint anyone on the right as a racist, describing the Virginia fools as “Trump’s people” has been a regular refrain from pundits on the left. In spite of all of the evidence linking Obama, the democrats, and BLM, as far as I can recall, the liberal mainstream media never sought to label black racists as “Obama’s people.”

Of course, this should surprise no one, and I expect the double-standard in this matter (and many others) to continue. Instead of proving Trump a racist, more than anything else, the events in Charlottesville reveal again reveal the depths of corruption of the left-wing media.

Gender Debate Reveals Again Why the Left Must Be Defeated

Donald Trump has finally returned the U.S. military to sound service policy when it comes to the gender-confused. For nearly the whole history of the U.S. military, and for almost as long as the idea of a “transgendered” person has existed, and for reasons that sounded-minded people have long understood and accepted, individuals who imagined themselves “trapped in the wrong body” (or some version of such perversion) have been barred from serving in any branch of the U.S. armed forces.

The only thing that should be up for debate here is why this took so long. Perhaps it was just some measure of politics, but this decision should have been easy and quick. In other words, the decision whether to ban the mentally ill (I prefer morally ill) from serving in the U.S. military should have happened within the first couple of weeks of the Trump administration. Does anyone really need to study why this



is wrong? In the early 1970s, Hollywood liberals made many jokes at the expense of a man who would stoop to dressing as a woman. M.A.S.H. was by no stretch of the imagination an expression of Christianity or conservatism. In other words, just a few decades ago, even the left had some idea of the abnormality of men dressing as women. Not so today.

I've had much to say already when it comes to the gender-confused (see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here), and that is a horrific indictment on our culture. There’s no way that in any healthy culture so many words must be written explaining and defending what is a male and what is a female.

It is of course absurd that we continue to have to debate the clear, undeniable science and morality of life in the womb, the unmistakable truth of what is marriage, and the like, but to have to debate seriously with large segments of our culture—including high-ranking officials in the worlds of science and politics—what is a man and what is a woman is perhaps the highest level of absurdity any human being in America with two brain cells to rub together has had to endure. Again, we see, liberalism corrupts.

Is there anything in the sexual realm—whether the reproductive act, or the biological classification—where liberals will not compromise? With such compromise—or rejection of absolute truths—comes many different logical conundrums.

As an exercise, try to get someone whose heart and mind are significantly corrupted by liberalism to define male and female. Or ask what is their definition of marriage? (If they give you one, ask them, “Why do you discriminate?”) Or ask them if they agree with federal laws protecting bald eagles, sea turtles, and other animals while they are still inside eggs. If they do, then follow up with the question, “Why do you feel those animal embryos are worth protecting, but not human life in the womb?”

The return to a recognition of gender dysphoria as a disorder by the U.S. military raises some other interesting questions. After North Carolina passed their common sense “bathroom bill,” everyone from the NCAA, the NBA, the NFL, to PayPal, sought to punish the Tar Heel State. The NBA moved its all-star game out of Charlotte. The NFL walked a finer line, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell still spoke out strongly against laws that are intended to keep men out of women’s restrooms.

Likewise, earlier this year, the NFL threatened the state of Texas over its “bathroom bill.” When asked about the Texas bill, NFL spokesmen Brian McCarthy said, “If a proposal that is discriminatory or inconsistent with our values were to become law there, that would certainly be a factor considered when thinking about awarding future events.” The Trump administration’s decree on the gender-confused puts the NFL in an interesting position.

The NFL has a long history of partnership with the U.S. military. From flag-covered fields to fighter-jet flyovers, troops on the fields and sidelines, camouflage jerseys and hats, and so on, for decades the NFL has aided the American armed forces in promotion, recruitment, and recognition. Of course, for the vast majority of this time, the gender-confused were barred from military service. But now what? Will the NFL continue to aid and abet the science-deniers at the expense of our military?

And speaking of science, how about the Trump administration also reverse the foolishly ignorant Obama-era edict that allows for U.S. women on the front lines of combat operations?

I say again, it is little wonder that American politicians can’t get things as complicated as health care, tax reform, immigration, North Korea, Islamic terrorism, the Middle East, and so on correct. When you can’t agree with your opponent on things as fundamental as life, marriage, and biological gender, there is almost no middle ground left where we can agree. In these grave matters, there is no compromise: the immoral efforts of the modern left must be defeated—both spiritually (which will eventually happen) and politically.

Klinger Gets His Wish: U.S. Military Bans the Gender-Confused

I'll have more to say on this later, but I think the most important thing to first note on this common-sense reversal of Obama's perverse policy experiment that allowed the gender-confused to serve in the U.S. military: WHAT TOOK SO LONG?!!!

Does anyone really need to "study" why this is wrong?!:


Perhaps it was just politics, but this decision should have been easy and quick. I've had much to say already when it comes to the gender-confused (see here, here, here, here, here, here, and here), and that is a horrific indictment on our culture. I think it absurd that we continue to have to debate the clear, undeniable science of life in the womb, the unmistakable truth of what is marriage, and the like, but to have to seriously debate with large segments of our culture--including high-ranking officials in the worlds of science and politics--what is a man and what is a woman is perhaps the highest level of absurdity any human being in America with two brain cells to rub together has had to endure. Again we see, liberalism corrupts.

Trump deserves some credit here, but to loudly applaud this would be like cheering your adult daughter for finally breaking up with her smelly, jobless, drug-addicted boyfriend. You're happy that it happened, but sorry you ever had to put up with such nonsense.

A final point: If the military can ban the gender-confused, then why can't schools, businesses, and so on, in the name of safety and expense, be allowed to require one's biology to determine one's access to locker rooms, bathrooms and the like?

We’re Raising Our Boys to be “Dangerous” Men

My wife Michelle and I have three sons and one daughter. Much to the dismay of foolish, so-called “feminists” like Jody Allard, we’re raising every one of them to be “dangerous,” though, not in the sense that Ms. Allard imagines. It’s worse—much, much, worse.

In case you missed it, Ms. Allard is the infamous mother who—while longing for “safe,” “feminist men,” and lamenting the allegedly numerous men who populate the so-called “rape culture,”—has more than once publicly shamed her two sons. I suppose the young men—both in their late teens—should at least be thankful that their angry, deceived, corrupted-by-liberalism mother didn’t kill them in the womb.

Last year, in a piece for the Washington Post, Ms. Allard stunningly declared, “My sons are part of the [rape culture] problem.” What makes her conclusion so stunning is that this mother deems her own boys “part of the problem,” not because of some wicked sexual activity, but merely because they are males and they refuse to participate actively in ending the “rape culture.”

This year, Allard followed up her 2016 hyperbole with this:
If the feminist men — the men who proudly declare their progressive politics and their fight for [e]quality— aren’t safe, then what man is? No man, I fear. 
I know I’m not supposed to cast an entire sex with a single paint brush — not all men, I’m sure some readers are thinking and preparing to type or tweet. But if it’s impossible for a white person to grow up without adopting racist ideas, simply because of the environment in which they live, how can I expect men not to subconsciously absorb at least some degree of sexism? White people aren’t safe, and men aren’t safe, no matter how much I’d like to assure myself that these things aren’t true. (Emphasis mine.)
Of course, unsafe men include her own sons. Again, Ms. Allard intolerantly labels her own boys unsafe because they have a penis and because they refuse to acknowledge the “rape culture” their mother insists exists.

There is a terrible bit of tragic irony here. Because they’ve been raised by an extremely liberal mother and without a father, almost certainly Ms. Allard’s sons are saddled with a psychology and a worldview that most likely will take them down regrettable paths. As I’ve often noted, the absence of fathers has had a devastating effect on children in America.

Among many other sad outcomes, fatherlessness is one of the leading predictors of future criminal activity. Children living with their married biological parents are the least likely to commit criminal acts. On the other hand, according to Effects of Fatherless Families on Crime Rates,
Children of single-parent homes [almost always without a father] are more likely to…engage in questionable behavior, struggle academically, and become delinquent. Problems with children from fatherless families can continue into adulthood. These children are three times more likely to end up in jail by the time they reach age 30 than are children raised in intact families, and have the highest rates of incarceration in the United States… 
According to Rolf Loeber, Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology and Epidemiology at the Western Psychiatric Institute in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, “A close and intense relationship between a boy and his father prevents hostility and inappropriate aggressiveness.” This inappropriate aggressiveness is an early indication of potential delinquency later on, particularly in boys.
According to Edward Kruk at Psychology Today, among other “disastrous” results, fatherless children are much more likely to be involved in violent crime (such as sexual assault). Kruk reports that “85 per cent of youth in prison have an absent father; fatherless children are more likely to offend and go to jail as adults.” As Maggie Gallagher warned in the late 1990s, “Fatherless Boys Grow Up Into Dangerous Men.”

Additionally, multiple studies note that fatherless children (and children from broken families in general) are FAR more likely to themselves be victims of violence and sexual assault. The National Children’s Alliance reveals,
Family structure is the most important risk factor in child sexual abuse. Children who live with two married biological parents are at low risk for abuse. The risk increases when children live with step-parents or a single parent. Children living without either parent (foster children) are 10 times more likely to be sexually abused than children that live with both biological parents. Children who live with a single parent that has a live-in partner are at the highest risk: they are 20 times more likely to be victims of child sexual abuse than children living with both biological parents (Sedlack, et. al., 2010).
In spite of these sobering facts—that anyone with a sound biblical worldview did not need to read—liberals like Ms. Allard continue to wage war on the family in America. What does the perverse redefinition of marriage achieved by liberals reveal if not that they believe that fathers and mothers don’t really matter? The sexual sin and violence that plagues our culture are the direct result of the efforts of liberals across the U.S —from our campuses to our courts. In other words, on sexual assault (or “rape culture”), liberals like Ms. Allard are mourning a culture that they helped to create.

Ms. Allard claims to have talked with her boys about “consent, misogyny and rape culture since they were tweens,” but has she talked to them about what it truly means for a husband to love his wife and for a wife to love her husband? Has she taught them to remain sexually pure until they are married? Has she warned them about the dangers of promiscuity, pornography (and its link to sexual aggression), and the homosexual lifestyle?

Among many other lies and perversions promoted by modern liberalism, my wife and I are warning our children about these dangers. What’s more, we are raising them to be agents of truth in this era of lies. We are teaching them to obey the Word of their Creator when it comes to marriage, sex, the family, and so on. We are teaching them to be witnesses to the world of all that is good and right, but given where we are with the sad state of the family in America, this is especially true of matters in the sexual realm.

In other words, we are teaching each of our four children to be “dangerous” to the cause of the “father of lies” and all of those who aid and abet him in this world.

Sorry, Mr. Pitts, but Liberalism is Beyond “Silly”

Well, well, it seems the “T” in LGBT has finally produced a line that even committed liberals are unwilling—or at least, not yet willing—to cross. For liberal columnist Leonard Pitts, a “genderless” child is the “proverbial bridge too far.” Of course, given the sad, sick, rotten fruit of modern liberalism, Mr. Pitts’ conclusion on genderless children raises the question: Why would any devoted liberal of the 21st century be taken aback by an “enlightened” parent who refuses to recognize the clear gender of his or her newborn child?

Touting his rock-solid liberal credentials, in his recent piece, Mr. Pitts points out,
I have, after all, long taken great pride in supporting LGBTQ freedom. Marriage equality, adoption rights, job protections, I have demanded them. Restroom ID laws, “don’t ask, don’t tell” and so-called “religious freedom” measures, I have fought them.
If modern liberalism “demands” that we dehumanize the unborn and ignore the clear science and morality of life in the womb; if it can procure from U.S. courts a legal redefinition of the oldest institution in the history of humanity; if it has concluded that elementary, middle, and high school students in America have the “right” to use whatever bathroom or locker room they so desire; if it allows for men to take trophies from women, or that there’s nothing wrong with women on performance-enhancing drugs to take trophies from normal women; if it has determined that women in combat are just as capable as men in combat; if it has decided that men can have babies (Is there a better headline to reveal the corruption of modern liberalism than, “British Man, 21, Makes History by Giving Birth…”?); if it has resolved that a black business owner doesn’t have to serve a “plantation wedding,” but a Christian business owner must serve a same-sex “wedding,” why would any modern liberal be surprised that those under the influence of liberalism would reject one of the tenets of basic biology?

In an effort to undermine Scripture, while at the same time attempting to excoriate Christian conservatives, liberals love to hail their knowledge of biology as they attempt to tout the legitimacy of Darwinian evolution (D.E.). Devoted Darwinists tell us that D.E. is the “foundation of biology,” or the “foundation of modern medicine.” Or, as the infamous Bill Nye put it in a YouTube video leading up to his 2014 debate with Ken Ham (a creation vs. evolution debate), “Evolution is the fundamental idea in all of life science, in all of biology.” Nye implies that without evolution, “you’re just not going to get the right answer.”

Of course it was Nye who just this year posted this obscenity, which I described a few days later as “the anthem of modern liberalism.” Nye’s insanely stupid video—which he introduced as a “very special…cool little segment”—implies that, where we are now with the gender debate (which is like debating whether or not the earth is round)—with many corrupted by liberalism unable to tell the difference between a boy and a girl—is due to “evolution.” The lyrics in the video also declare
Sexuality's a spectrum
Everyone is on it…
Drag queen, drag king
Just do what feels right
There you have it. The motto of modern liberalism: “Just do what feels right.” Yet a liberal like Leonard Pitts is surprised that folks who heed this ignorant, wicked garbage would stoop to purposefully ignoring and obscuring the gender of their child. Again, this is what liberalism has wrought. In other words, this is what your labor has wrought, Leonard.

And this is FAR beyond being “silly.” It is despicable. These are the efforts of one who is “wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.” In other words, these are the efforts of one steeped in spiritual darkness.

Again, labeling your child an “it” is what happens when you ignore the eternal truths of the One who made us. Debating gender, life in the womb, marriage, et al, is what happens when “Everybody Wants to Rule Their World.” It is little wonder that American politicians can’t get things as complicated as health care, tax reform, immigration, North Korea, Islamic terrorism, the Middle East, and so on correct. When you can’t agree with your opponent on things as fundamental as life and marriage, there is almost no middle ground left where we can agree.

This is why liberalism must be fought at every turn. Whether politics, education, entertainment, industry, the military, and yes—tragically—even the church, those right-minded must work to defeat liberalism.

The Vile, Crazy Left

On the political spectrum, I land just to the right of Moses. As I’ve pointed out before, my political positions are the result of my Christian faith. So yes, I’m a bit bothered by how President Trump— for whom I voted, and given the same circumstances, would gladly do so again—chooses to fight back against the “progressive” press. However, I’m glad he is fighting back against the relentless tide of hate-filled rhetoric and lies that are a daily part of the discourse spewed by liberals in the mainstream media and the democrat party.

One of the frequent talking points of those on the left today is that because of the way Trump has dealt with the media—especially through Twitter—and others with whom he disagrees, he is vile, vulgar, “trashy,” undignified, un-presidential, piggish, childish, and as Jay Bookman of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution put it, with “all the self-control and discipline of a spoiled four-year-old throwing a temper tantrum at the grocery store.” Yeah, well, at least he’s not a liberal—or, better put, at least he’s not beholden to a liberal agenda.

I’m afraid much of what we read and hear from the President that is undesirable is the result of living most of his life under significant liberal influence. As even Rush Limbaugh himself pointed out less than two months prior to the election last year, Donald Trump is not a conservative—at least not in the sense that most define real conservatism. But as Rush also pointed out, strong conservatism hasn’t been at the top of the GOP ticket since 1984. What Donald Trump is, and what he can continue to be, is a great ally in the battle against liberalism and the radical, perverse agenda of the modern left.

President Trump has proven this many times over since his inauguration on January 20. From (most of) his cabinet appointments, to his Supreme Court appointment, his lower court appointments, his executive orders, and so on, President Trump has gotten much done to aid the cause of conservatism and hinder the cause of liberalism. Of course, liberals are not blind to this, and thus the continuous “nasty” attacks from the left.

And nasty is as nasty does. The left simply can’t help itself, because, for the most part, it is simply who they are. In addition to their dishonest attempts to undermine President Trump and the GOP’s agenda, time and again, liberals have left nearly no insult unturned as they have sought to ridicule and insult President Trump and his family. Along with the countless vile attacks on the President, Ivanka (see here, here, and here), Melania, (see here, here, and here), and even 11 year-old Barron Trump (see here, here, and here) have suffered the evil ire of the modern left.

Yet President Trump is supposed to remain “dignified” and “presidential?” He is probably doing well to respond only in the manner he has. I’m not sure there is a husband and father the world over who has been forced to endure such attacks on himself and his family as has Donald Trump.

The vulgar and crazy attacks against Trump and the GOP aren’t only from the liberal media. Many democrat politicians have not only remained silent—and thus given tacit support to their cohorts in the media—but they’ve joined in the abhorrent attacks against republicans of every stripe. Whether publicly dropping “f-bombs”—as did two democrat senators (so much for the “dignity” of “the world’s greatest deliberative body”) recently in attacking the GOP and President Trump—or comparing the Trump camp to Nazis, democrats across the U.S. are unhinged in their rhetoric.

In late March, no less than the newly elected chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, ignorantly and defiantly declared that Mr. Trump “did not win the election.” He colorfully followed that up with the all too common democrat refrain “Republicans don’t give a sh*t about people.”

Just where are the cries for dignity and decent behavior for those on the left? Where are the high expectations for those of the esteemed “Fourth Estate?” Shouldn’t we demand honest and upright behavior from those worthy of specific protection in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?

Alas, whether elected officials, members of the press, entertainers, educators, and even those devoted to ministry, liberalism corrupts. And liberals still wonder how — just how any self-respecting person could support Donald Trump. Maybe those devoted to killing children in the womb, killing the family, killing capitalism, redefining the oldest institution in the history of humanity, redefining gender, redefining the Second Amendment, defending and promoting pornography (and virtually any other sexual perversion imaginable), defending and promoting socialism, defending and promoting the myth of global warming, and so on, should consider how vile and vulgar many Americans find the tenets of modern liberalism.

In other words, if modern liberals want to see something really revolting, most of them need to examine their own politics and policies.
