As we’ve done in the past, we’ll take a moment on this Monday to comment from a HardWired News perspective on weekend developments that didn’t receive much coverage
Comedian George Lopez Booed; Contributes to Racism
Hispanic comedian George Lopez was booed from an event he was supposed to be moderating in Denver over the weekend for his continued Trump-bashing jokes and anti-white comments. He referred to people in the audience disparagingly as a bunch of “old white men,” and ranted about white privilege.
When minorities seek justice by bashing whites, they are guilty of the same racist philosophies as those who insult them. Racism is, of course, the practice of attributing faults to an entire group of people based on their ancestry. It’s wrong when white people practice it against blacks, Hispanics, and others. But when turnaround is used by minorities, it simply justifies and ratifies the process, thereby contributing to the spiral of racial divide. And the frenzied Trump-bashing by Lopez and his buddies on the left is so over the top, rational people begin to simply dismiss it out of hand rather than seriously consider the arguments of those who oppose Trump.
I can tell you from experience as a white man in America that there are others of my background and ethnicity who are racist (I am not). But for every one that is, there are many, many more who are fair-minded and sympathetic to the concerns of minorities. Behavior such as Lopez displayed turns these people off, and gives permission to the racists for their behavior.
So score one for the racists thanks to George Lopez. Not to mention empowering the Trump supporters. Thanks, George
Weinstein Brings Out the Worst in the Left
Harvey Weinstein, as everyone knows by now, is the uber-liberal Hollywood mogul recently called out for sexual aggression toward and exploitation of young Hollywood women. The fawning left initially—for decades, actually—looked the other way, although his actions have become so notorious everyone is piling on (rightly so, in my view). He has no cover. But now the left is growing bizarre in their quest to draw-and-
quarter him. An actress, Mayim Bialik of Big Bang TV fame, wrote that she condemned Weinstein, sympathized with his victims, and recounted how she has had to deflect unwanted sexual advances in Tinsel Town by making it clear she would not tolerate them. Instead of praising her, the left attacked her for “implying” the victims had done something wrong by not emulating Bialik. She, of course, said no such thing, but that did not calm the attacks. As these things always seem to work out, she has now apologized to the left, for doing absolutely nothing wrong! You can’t make this stuff up.
Those Who Profess Wanting to Save People from Gun Violence Threaten Others with Death
You heard me. Anti-gun advocates are turning on NRA female spokesperson Dana Loesch and sending her death threats. In the interest of stopping gun violence, these nuts are saying they will shoot her and “rape her to death.” She points out, correctly in my mind, many of her detractors are also the ones condemning Weinstein for his abuse of women (see any irony here?) and “the left believes only non-conservative women deserve respect.” The left could not show greater hypocrisy.
