Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 18, 2019

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) late Saturday suggested that viewers should boycott comedian Bill Maher's late-night HBO show over his vehement criticism of the international movement to boycott Israel. Tlaib, who was denied entry to Israel last week over her support of the movement, said that she was "tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom."

The voters of Michigan should boycott her in 2020. But she might win the state...for Trump.

t would be interesting to see a reporter ask Tlaib or Omar about this news story: "PA Bans LGBTQ Activities In West Bank."

The Palestinian Authority has banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.

Poor little Snowflake, she brought this upon herself with her using Granny as a prop.

A lot of Kansans boycotted Maher during the DeBruce days. He can go eff himself.

I wonder if Tlaib supports Hamas tactics, like suicide bombers?

I wonder if Tlaib's grandma supports Hamas tactics, like suicide bombers?

Not to say that Tlaib's granny is Hamas. She could be PLO.

In which case, she would be at odds with Hamas, but could still support suicide bombers.

Translation:

"WAAAAH! I got called on my anti-semitism by someone who is supposed to be supporting me! I'm going to really show him! I'm Congressperson Tlaib, after all. How dare he?"

I support Hamas. I support any oppressed people.

The cruelty is the point.

"Tlaib Suggests Boycotting Maher Show"

I suggest voters boycotting Tlaib.

Here's a hint, Congresswoman: STFU about other people's opinions, if you believe in the First Amendment.

Wow, you are actually criticizing a Democrat.

Baby steps...

This is a rare situation where Danforth breaks mold. But he's been notably consistent about it. Intellectual property rights and copyright and patents is where Danforth, not Donkey Suit Dan, sounds like a conservative.

I like busting his chops but I have to be fair.... credit is where it's due.

Why? Its her opinion too .... free speech has consequences ...

I support Hamas. I support any oppressed people.

Odd ... Hamas oppresses LGBT?

Wow, you are actually criticizing a Democrat. ~ RoC

And he's still wrong .... just goes to show you whatever side Danforth is on... the other side is probably correct.

"where Danforth ... sounds like a conservative."

Oh, my friend, I haven't left you; you've left me.

Conservatives believe in balanced budgets; Republicans believe in tax cuts for the wealthiest, regardless the resultant casualties.
Conservatives believe in equality; Republicans believe in using orientation as a wedge issue.
Conservatives believe in education; Republicans believe in dumbing down the populace for their own purposes.
Conservatives believe in science; Republicans believe science undermines religion.
Conservatives believe in math; Republicans believe in a fantasy where giveaways to the wealthiest solve everything.*
Conservatives believe in good, sound government; Republicans believe governing is the problem, and set out to prove that theory every time.

I've been a consistent Conservative all along. I didn't move...you did.

*by "solve everything", I mean get them re-elected.

Because her opinion is he shouldn't have an opinion. You get that....right?

Again, in fairness, I'll amend #18...

I will absolutely give you props for your first bullet point.

#5 Has some semblance of truth to it.

If you're trying to boycott comedians, you're losing the argument.

Bingo.

"6 positions and 6 straw men"

Sorry, sonny, but that was the Conservative (at that time Republican) party I grew up with.

And what, specifically, are you arguing against? That Conservatives didn't represent business done right, i.e., balanced budgets? That Conservatives didn't take us to the moon? That Conservatives didn't used to believe in higher education versus today's dripping contempt for anyone University educated?

I lived through that. Tell me it didn't happen.

Please be clearer in your quotations. Your sloppiness leads folks to believe I said things I didn't say.

"...just goes to show you whatever side Danforth is on... the other side is probably correct."

I guess you need to stock up on your butt-paste, to go along with your freight cars of turd polish.

" Cancel culture is spreading for one simple reason: it works. Instead of debating ideas or competing for entertainment dollars, you can just demand anyone who annoys you to be cast out of polite society.

Way back in the mists of time, say five years ago, if you didn't like a TV show or movie, you wouldn't watch it. Now you can ensure that no one watches it, just by slinging some outrage on social media.

Our woke mentality is America's new Puritanism. Instead of a handy list of sins written thousands of years ago, modern sins are ever-changing. A joke that was deemed progressive a decade ago is retroactively condemned as hate speech.

"If you say the wrong thing," Silverman said, "everyone is, like, throwing the first stone. It's a perversion. It's really, Look how righteous I am and now I'm going to press refresh all day long to see how many likes I get in my righteousness.' "

When the mob has burned one witch, they tighten the buckles on their hats and pore through old YouTube videos for their next victim."

No, he nailed it when you look at actual policy enacted.
