Hugh Hewitt “cuckservative”

I hate that I am starting to use that term, but it seems to so well encapsulate this sort of behavior. From an article at The Hill:

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt expressed disbelief on Monday with Donald Trump’s handling of support from white nationalist David Duke.

“It’s inexplicable,” he told host Carol Costello on “CNN Newsroom.” “I don’t know what Donald was thinking yesterday.”

Hewitt argued that Trump must have familiarity with Duke given the former Ku Klux Klansman’s notoriety.

“I can’t imagine anybody who wants to be president not knowing who David Duke is,” he said. “[Trump] had denounced David Duke two days ago.”

Hugh Hewitt is shamelessly trying to score points with liberals by showing how anti-racist he is, even though Trump never said anything good about David Duke and disavowed him twice during the last few days. Hewitt happily throws Trump—the only chance to put a stop to open borders and amnesty—under the bus in order to score points with liberals.* By buying into the liberal narrative, he empowers it and gives the liberals even more ammunition to take down anyone they disagree with by calling them “racist.”

Trump said, “Just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke, OK?” In fact, everyone in the chattering class is also clueless about David Duke. All you are supposed to know about him is a very simple narrative that goes as follows:

David Duke once had some sort of leadership position in the KKK.
The KKK is racist and therefore really really evil.
David Duke is a high-level racist and therefore really really evil, even more so than regular racists.

This is not to say that I agree with David Duke and his ilk. They are vile Jew haters who are doing more harm to the interests of white (both Jewish and gentile whites) non-elite Americans than helping them. But at least I understand something about their beliefs and goals, unlike Hugh Hewitt or the guy from CNN who sandbagged Trump with that question.

Clearly what Trump meant by his remark is not “I don’t know who he is” but rather “I know very little about David Duke or what he believes because I don’t associate with him, I never met him, I certainly don’t read any of the stuff that he writes, and I have no idea why he would endorse me, or even that he did endorse me.” The MSM is trying unsuccessfully spin this into “Trump is a racist” because he didn’t grovel properly. And even if he did grovel, it would have been taken as proof of Trump’s guilty mind, proving that he’s a racist.

*Actually, Hewitt was always one of those sell-out “conservatives” who favored being soft on immigration.

Commenter “Tarl” writes: “I didn’t even know David Duke was still alive. When was he last in the news – 1992?”

Actually, Duke writes columns in which he blames the Jewish Conspiracy for everything, and he has a pretty big following among the Stormfront people.

This may be another case of Trump’s luck. Most people realize that he’s not responsible for whatever whacko endorses him, and it takes away attention from Trump U – a genuine problem.

Wow, this is a good point! The MSM is so obsessed with the racism angle they are missing hitting Trump where he’s legitimately weakest.

  1. He’s one of those House Cucks that you see on CNN and MSNBC. They always bring out conservatives who agree with them on this PC stuff while firing Pat Buchanan.


    February 29, 2016 at 12:46 pm

    • I used to get the podcasts of his shows when they were free. He’s an intelligent, well read guy who has a pretty good grasp of foreign policy. I used to listen to him because he had Mark Steyn on. But is a cuck? Yes of course. He desperately wants approval from the MSM and is pro amnesty…you know, Mexicans are natural conservatives and all that.

      • He has a good grasp, but wants to overthrow Assad, which makes him moronic. Those who are most house trained on women, gays, and blacks are the biggest War on Terror supporters, like Lindsey Graham and the Bushes. That’s because the War on Terror is a fundamentally liberal project, just with bombs.

  2. Wow is all I can say.

    This kind of disgraceful cuckery is a prime example of the type of kowtow-eager mental psychosis that that the GOP has ascribed to for 20 years. It’s eating away at the very souls of core Americans, many of whom don’t recognize or feel connected to their land or their country any longer. And it’s so characteristic of the type of screechery that is now characterizing our rapidly feminizing political landscape – taking a non-issue out of thin air and manufacturing it into an emotional political crisis, complete with attached hysterics.

    Politics has been turned into an unsustainable and disgraceful PC race-to-the-bottom and core White Americans are getting really tired of it.Trump is going to change the game.


    February 29, 2016 at 12:59 pm

    • But he failed to change the game, didn’t he? All he had to say was, “it’s not 1955 anymore. Blacks face no physical threat from anyone. Blacks have more civil rights now than whites do.” Slow on his feet.


      February 29, 2016 at 1:37 pm

      • A statement like that is highly unnecessary and would equate to political suicide, even his opposition to PC needs some moderation and strategy behind it. He got nothing to gain referring to 1955 for any reason, it doesn’t help bring in the moderate and prole vote that he’s trying to seize.

        He’s got an election to win and practical concerns are still important. But, his always pro-police mentality would lead me to believe he’d run the country as if he believes that statement…


        February 29, 2016 at 3:21 pm

      • And furthermore, giving a legit answer like what you suggested is giving in to Tapper’s game and continuing to let liberalism run the discourse. Tapper knows damn well that Trump has no connections to David Duke and that the two have never met, discussed strategy or broken bread together. His absurd question was just a PC control method, and the Donald didn’t indulge it…


        February 29, 2016 at 3:23 pm

  3. In the irony department, David Duke had also endorsed a Black Democrat. Why? Because Jews.

    I bet the media didn’t come calling trying to get him to disavow that endorsement.

  4. Anyone know the comparative totals – on the one hand lynchings of blacks in the South during the last 100 years, and on the other, number of whites killed by blacks since Obama’s election?


    February 29, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    • This from footnote 315 on page 92 of Jared Taylor’s Paved with Good Intentions:

      It has been all but forgotten that whites were lynched as well as blacks. Between the years 1882 and 1962, a total of 3,442 blacks and 1,294 whites were lynched. The last white was lynched in 1957, and the last black in 1961. From 1947 to 1961, blacks were lynched at a rate of fewer than one a year.

  5. I haven’t read up on the KKK much lately, but it seems that they are mostly painted as being driven by an inherent hatred for people different from themselves to do unprovoked and evil things for no apparent reason. The assumption is always that they were driven by irrationality thus their very existence becomes proof for the notion that there is a massive dangerous irrational force out there, racism, that if not suppressed through constant PR and reactions to nationalist (read racial) identity will manifest itself in another series of lynchings or worse. There is no consideration given to the possibility that this group was acting in its own rational, if IMMORAL, self-interest.

    Before the Nazi example came on the scene to become an archetype for such things (before WWII), I think the KKK was largely viewed as a renegade vigilante force operating with tacit approval of the authorities for the purpose of suppressing a problematic population that eventually went overboard (the KKK) and became a law into themselves. Now, however, the story is that the KKK were a terrorist organization of haters going after innocent people defending themselves or their rights or their ability to claim some space for themselves and the KKK was allowed to exist because of insufficient social opposition to hate because the broader population was allowed to be small haters themselves. It is a compelling story (that of the innocents) and the inherent call to ‘oppose hate’ is part of what gives SJWs the righteous sensibility that motivates them and allows them to reify hate as a material force rather just an abstraction.


    February 29, 2016 at 1:35 pm

    • The KKK has been powerless in this country for 40+ years, except in the mind of Hollywood Producers.

      If the KKK was so able to commit violence with impunity they wouldn’t have been wearing hoods to cover their identity even in the bad old days 100 years ago.


      February 29, 2016 at 4:01 pm

  6. Lion, like you I wish that Trump would deflect this more adroitly, but I think it’s a case where the public sees through this outrageous MSM trolling, and the MSM doesn’t realize that the ground beneath their feet has shifted.

    I know you don’t like profanity on your blog, but in this case, “fuck ’em” is appropriate.


    February 29, 2016 at 1:56 pm

  7. Lion,

    The fact that the media is bringing up the KKK and David Duke is almost a caricature of the level that they will be willing to go to try to bring down any outsider. The idea that this is even a talking point today is shocking to me. They should criticize Trump for hiring illegal Polish workers or H2B visas in Mar-a-Largo (I’m a Trump supporter but he should absolutely be criticized for that).

    I’m almost at a loss for words that they would bring up the KKK and David Duke. Again, it’s like a caricature of a liberal hit job. And people like Brad Thor (someone who writes patriotic American Assassin type novels) have been really going after Trump.

    Apparently nationalism, which includes protecting American workers, is such a bad thing that even “Conservatives” will go to any level to stop it. It’s beyond me.


    February 29, 2016 at 2:15 pm

    • It is indeed quite comical that the left still trudges this tired stuff out ad infinitum. But, as you suggested, it might be insulating Trump from other critical angles that could actually have some merit. And since he’s only running on 2 barebones themes that he hasn’t yet fleshed out very much at all, he’s not alienating any voters because taking any hard stand on an issue is sure to make some voters happy while displeasing others.

      He’s replacing Barry as the new “blank screen” since he has no track record of getting off the fence to make the hard decisions. Same as Barry left almost no writings from his time at Harvard Law and then just voted “present” for 70% of his votes as Junior Senator, Trump doesn’t have to answer any real, potentially divisive questions because the MSM is too busy wasting time on stupidity like this David Duke flap.

  8. I’m very angry about this whole thing, what it means about who wields power in our society, and how they keep power by keeping regular people incapable of forming an adequate defense against their trickery.

    Compare how the media allowed Obama to slip away from the taint of Jeremiah Wright. As far as I know, Wright isn’t particularly Jew-obsessed, but he is arm in arm with Lewis Farrakhan, who is. Obama had an intense relationship his entire adult life with Jeremiah Wright, who is an ally of a psychopathic hater of Jews.

    (I won’t even go into the whole William Ayers business. History will uncover the truth about that.)

    This should have disqualified – yes, disqualified – Obama to run for the Presidency. But he gave a speech, and a black guy cried, and the media let him slide. The media spewed their clichés about Obama’s “soaring rhetoric,” and the matter died. I cannot tell you how much I despise these guys.

    About the word, “cuck,” I use it, but I’m not entirely comfortable with it because of its alt-right provenance, and you know what I think of those bums. Partly my problem is that it seems to be an all-purpose insult to hurl at whoever you don’t like. I note that most of the alt-right goes awfully silent when it’s pointed out that Obama most likely privately detests Israel, and would be happy to see it destroyed. The only time you’ll ever see a good word for Obama on Sailer’s website is when Israel is concerned, then it’s “muh President.”

      That one is always amusing. Obama’s every foreign policy action in the Middle East has been to enable the worst available Muslim terrorist groups to gain as much of the area as possible for. There’s no explanation for the altright’s opinion that Obama is a Zionist other than the altright is just a rebranded group of internet neonazis imbeciles.

      I also notice they don’t respond to counter arguments, such as when I ask them how can Jewish liberals be liberal because of ethnocentrism when politically conservative Jews (Orthodox, Russian, Israeli,) are the most ethnocentric Jews. The relationship between ethnocentrism and Judaism is clear that more ethnocentrism improves Jewish politics. They often never respond because there is no explanation other than higher ethnocentrism correlates with more conservative politics, not liberalism.

    • I am one of those detestable alt righters and I have to tell you that we don’t particularly care about Israel. Most of us are happy to let the Jews have their own country and if we were in charge we would probably even sell them weapons too. We just want liberal Jews and neocon jews to stop subverting our countries.


      February 29, 2016 at 8:31 pm

      • That you say “liberal Jews and neocon Jews” instead of just saying “liberals and neocons” is anti-Semitic because you are implying some sort of special Jewish Conspiracy where none actually exists. These are political movements that aren’t controlled by Jews, and are not in any way related to Judaism. The only reason why Jews are disproportionately represented among media pundits is because it’s a high-IQ occupation and Jews have genetically higher IQ than gentiles.

        I didn’t say you (collectively) did, I just gave one particular example of alt-right self-cucking, if cucking is to be understood as a form of intellectual fraud and bankruptcy, because it involves hating the worse enemy: Jews.

        Secondly, you are lying, like all alt-righters. Jews are the obsession of the alt-right. I refuse to stoop to giving links and examples here. This is not my blog. And it’s soul destroying.

        They’re as obsessed with Israel – which has nothing whatsoever to do with American immigration policy anymore than our alliance with South Korea does – at least as much as they are with immigration. Perhaps more so; I doubt half of them would worry about immigration if they didn’t wrongly see the West’s immigration suicide as a Jewish project to advance their ‘ethnic interests’.

        We just want liberal Jews and neocon jews to stop subverting our countries.

        You should be grateful there are so many liberal Jews. Without them the left would be completely gentile, instead of just majority gentile. And then you would have no way, either in terms of evidence or your already very limited brainpower, to coverup and excuse the actions of liberal gentiles when they inevitably brought the West to the exact same state it is in now through exactly the same policies and ideas which are also supported by liberal Jews:

        Upton Sinclair – April, 1938

        I want to know the truth and
        to tell it as well as I can. It is also true that I have
        been studying the problem of Russia as earnestly as
        I know how for twenty years. There have been few
        days during that period that I have not sought some
        new facts and pondered them. I have had many a
        heartache over the things which have happened in
        Russia— so different from what I hoped for. I watched
        Gorky all through this period, and I know how he
        suffered and how more than once he wavered. But
        in the end he made up his mind that the Soviet
        regime was the best hope for the workers of Russia,
        and that is my conclusion today
        . I do not think it
        is going to change so long as Mussolini, Hitler, Franco
        and Araki continue to menace the world with a return
        to the middle ages, and so long as the Soviet Union

        It doesn’t matter how Jewish or gentile a Western institution is, they’ll end up pursuing the same liberal agenda regardless because Jewish and gentile elites – or Catholic, Protestant, Mormon, whatever – differ little in terms of policy and motivation.

        The establishment media organs of Britain – The Economist, Guardian, Independent, Financial Times, BBC, etc – are very gentile proportionally speaking but they’ve traditionally been to the left of the American media despite the fact of having fewer Jews and British Jews normally favoring Tories.

      • America has been destroying it’s majority for much longer than other countries, many of which even now have immigration policies designed not to upset their ethnic identity. Even the ones that have embarked on a similar path have only done so recently and are in a much stronger position than the US is. Your argument seems to assume it’s impossible for the US to have any influence on the rest of the world and that any nation that copies American policy came up with it independently.

        And ultra orthodox Jews have a whole other much worse set of characteristics that they use to pursue the same goal of jewish self preservation so I don’t think they offer up much of a defense.

      • I think if Israel fell to Islam it would be the darkest event since 1453 Constantinople. I don’t know how any Westerner could not want the Holy Land of our Judeo Christian faith to not be in safe hands.
        There are lots of leftist Jews in the USA (but they are right-wing in Israel), and there is a 10 page explanation why this is. I think Jews will probably break even for Trump and the polls are coming in for how strong he’s running in lower NY. I don’t think Jews are the problem in the USA that everyone blames for them for. Dick Cheney and GWB invaded Iraq. Condie, then Colin Powell, then Rumsfield. We were not among the top 5 decision makers. Germany got rid of their Jews and their problems are now far worse than ours could be.

      • America has been destroying it’s majority for much longer than other countries, many of which even now have immigration policies designed not to upset their ethnic identity.


        Western Europe, which is now down to 85% white, began importing non-whites from their old colonial territories soon after WWII. We didn’t open our borders until 1965, and even the ’65 act probably wasn’t intended to dramatically alter the nations demographics. For example, half or almost half of all Hispanics are derived from illegal immigration and their children, not legal immigrants who came after 1965; most immigrants for the first 10 years of the 65 act were backlogged European immigrants, etc.

        The main reason we’re less than 70% white is because we were already 10% black, 2% other, in 1945, while Europe entered the post-war era as 100% white, or almost 100% white.

        Your argument seems to assume it’s impossible for the US to have any influence on the rest of the world and that any nation that copies American policy came up with it independently.

        It’s your argument that’s wrong because Western Europe has usually been at least a few decades ahead of us on most every liberal issue, from post-nationalism (the euro currency), post-democracy (the EU constitution), gay rights (Scandinavia).

        And ultra orthodox Jews have a whole other much worse set of characteristics that they use to pursue the same goal of jewish self preservation

        Orthodox Jews conflict with urban gentiles because they are so culturally conservative.

        Liberal Jews aren’t preserving their ethnicity with liberal policies, theu’re undermining their own interests just like gentile liberals are and for basically the same reasons. Immigration’s impact has been most dramatic in urban areas whereas heartland states have been relatively less affected by demographic trends. Turning Stuyveysant into an Asian high school negatively impacted Jewish ‘ethnic’ interests.

  10. The media haven’t noticed that ‘anti fragile’ author Nassim Taleb thinks Trump would be quite risk averse and pragmatic in office. Steve Hsu also notes trump is a lot smarter and thoughtful than critics admit.

    Looks like Trump is soaring in the polls.


    February 29, 2016 at 3:04 pm

  11. Mr. Duke, if you truly want a certain candidate to win, don’t publicly endorse them. It can only hurt their chances. I don’t care who Trump runs against in the general election … they’ll run stuff like this ’round the clock and the independents and undecideds will flee.

  13. It’s depressing that politics in this country has decayed to a point where words and accusations basically have no meaning anymore. It’s almost literally impossible to objectively argue whether a person or thing is or isn’t racist anymore, since the term is now just this blunt weapon people use to beat each other with. I heard Ben Carson the other day saying the liberals that hate him are all racists too.

    Even the Stormfront people, it’s often hard to tell if they’re actually racist or just anti-anti-racist, which is basically just a strategic political opinion.

    He already explained this twice.

    The establishment is thinking of running a third party candidate against Trump.

    To minimize this problem as much as possible (or even turn a GOPe third party into an advantage) Trump should start labeling this party as a leftist party that will ensure Hillary appoints Scalia’s replacement. If he calls them liberal enough times he might be able to get as many Democrats to vote for it as Republicans, thus making the party’s impact neutral in the general.

    He should also move to try to keep the new party off of as many state ballots as possible by suing them under ‘sore loser’ laws, discouraging signature collecting efforts, and anything else possible to keep the party from getting off the ground.

    It would be like someone asking a northeast politician about a mafia leader and and mafia leader’s comments and the pol says – “I don’t know anything about Genovese or the mafia.”

    And then the critics act like he meant it literally as if he’s never HEARD of the mafia.

    “I don’t know” here means I’m not involved with, don’t care about, didn’t read the opinion of etc.

    This is Trump haters on the left and right thinking this is their chance to bring down Trump because blacks rule over the American consciousness as a threat to keep as many White people as submissive and timid as possible.

  18. Regarding gothamette’s comment:

    Trump University is, in fact, a genuine problem for Trump. A classic bait and switch scam (one that is currently being litigated) Trump actually sought out suckers to enroll in his fake school, and personally profited to the tune of a measly (for him) $5-10 million.

    I wrote about the Trump U fiasco over at Medium. The essay is an in-depth look at the mechanisms of the con, and an examination of the con-man tactics Trump uses in general:

    View story at

    Lion, you should review my essay, and tell me why I am wrong. You previously wondered why Trump U “graduates” had given a 98% approval rating to the seminars. The answer to that question is that they were asked to review the program very early on — during the “free seminar” part of the scam. That is to say, before they were asked to pay upwards of $35,000 for “boilerplate motivational materials” and real estate listings taken straight from the Scotsman Guide, an inexpensive trade magazine.

    Of course, when they realized they were fleeced, and went to ask for a refund, they were summarily denied, as Trump’s lawyers were able to point to their positive reviews as proof that they were satisfied with the experience.

    It really was a nakedly bold and disgusting thing for Trump to do (particularly when he didn’t really need the money) and, in my experience, should disqualify him from the Presidency.

    Disclaimer: I once (kind of) supported Trump.


    February 29, 2016 at 7:59 pm

    • I agree that Trump “University” is a scam. Whether or not it’s a legal scam is up to the courts. There’s a class action suit. I think Trump should have settled it if he knew he was running for president. But if Trump wins on legal technicalities, then the whole thing will be too complicated for average voters to figure out. Also the MSM is too stupid to go after Trump on this, they are more interested in the racism and hypocrisy angles.

      Not a reason to vote for Hillary. A vote for Hillary means that you approve of open borders and amnesty. I hope that Trump will use his abilities to con other countries for the benefit of the United States. Other presidents have been just as corrupt as Trump, in different ways but just as corrupt if not more so, and they were able to carry out their duties as president.

      A vote for Trump is not a vote for Trump the guy with prole tastes and Trump “University”, it’s a vote against immigration and against political correctness. A powerful symbolic vote.

      As I keep saying, Romney was too dignified to get into a line of business like this, but the prole voters didn’t like Romey. They appreciate Trump’s prole attitude towards making money.

      • This makes me think of something you said in a previous post, with which I concur — that Sanders is a “putz” for sucking up to minorities. (We see how well that worked out for him in South Carolina!) It does give me pause to support Sanders, a poor tactician, when a “Master Persuader” is available. I can see Sanders getting on the debate stage with Trump and going into a detailed, wonkish explanation of economics, after which Trump says something viscerally effective and instantly sound-bite-y, like: “He wants to give the country away!” Indeed, Trump hasn’t even “started in on” Hillary Clinton yet, and when he does, it’s going to be like shooting fish in a barrel. (He may be surprised, though, at how willing Clinton is to play “fast and loose” with the political rules of engagement.)

        Immigration is not really a huge issue for me. I don’t live in Florida or the American Southwest, and I work in a stable field (nursing) with an ever-replenishing product (sickness, death). As such, I am far more concerned with corporate executives stacking the deck against the middle- and working-class, than I am about Pedro mowing the lawn next door.

      • martin, that’s nice that you don’t feel personally threatened. Smug, in fact. From what I’ve seen of Brit TV, anglo nurses were being replaced by foreign nurses decades ago in the UK. Are you sure it can’t happen here?

        And where I live, young guys with names like Steve and Josh and Levi are still doing lawncare, drywall, framing, roofing, you name it. It would be a shame to see all these guys replaced by Little Brown Men as they have been in the Southwest. At least not before they can get that CS degree or whatever they’re going to need to survive.

    • @Martinslag,
      You said you are going to vote for Sanders, but what if Hillary is the Democratic nominee? Then it will be Prof. Trump v. Goldman Sachs (per Snowden).


      February 29, 2016 at 8:28 pm

      • That is quite the pickle. I loathe Clinton, of course, but I can’t in good conscience vote for Trump, knowing (as we know from the Trump U lawsuits) how willing he is to betray those who invest in him.

        The immigration thing is a dealbreaker for some. That’s understandable. And valid — assuming Trump is actually going to BUILD the wall. That’s a leap of faith Lion and others are taking. I’d be more skeptical.

        Psychologically, the kind of person who amasses vast wealth and runs for President to “give something back” is also the kind of person who feels humbled by the opportunity to get rich, who feels indebted to the nation that made his wealth possible. I get none of that from Trump. In fact, I get quite the opposite.

        I see the same thing from Clinton. Whereas Trump wants money, Clinton wants power. Both are creatures of excess. I trust neither. (However, Trump is certainly more likable and entertaining; thus I naturally gravitate towards his candidacy.)

        But to answer your question: Assuming Trump does nothing in the next 9 months to demonstrate he is actually going to *destroy* the country, I will probably write in Sanders as a protest vote, or simply not vote at all.

      • @martinslag,

        Unlike some around here, I don’t try to argue people out of their own perspectives, esp. when I sympathize with them. I can only say that if my choice is Trump V. Goldman Sachs, that is, Not-Goldman-Sachs v. Goldman-Sachs, I choose “Not Goldman Sachs.”

        Further, Bernie lost my enthusiasm when he kissed Al Sharpton’s ass. Sharpton is a murderer. Google “Freddy’s Fashion Mart.” He groveled for black votes and didn’t get them. He disgraced himself.

        This election is about immigration and trade, yes, but it’s also about cultural hegemony. I refuse to be dictated to by Al Sharpton. He is my enemy.

    • Disclaimer: Your article states that you think gov should distribute free food, and uses the nonsense phrase “racist against Muslims.”

      You say Trump fleeced the American people out of (Dr Evil voice) five MILLION dollars! Yet you plead for a pathetic culture of dependency that has already robbed us and our families of trillions.

      Your best bet is to beg your hero Sanders to let you sleep under his staircase.


      February 29, 2016 at 8:57 pm

      • I think an argument can be made that fear and revulsion of Muslims stems from a racist impulse … but that is beyond the scope of the essay. Obviously, there is no “Muslim race.” I was using the word “racist” as a liberal might use it.

        The only thing I said, or implied, about “free food” is that needy children should be eligible for lunch programs while in school. I was once one of those children.

        No need to beg Sanders for a place to sleep. I’m a nurse, and thus will always have a job.

    • Read through the actual surveys given by the students. There is very useful information there as to material covered and impressions of the instructors, even if this was only the introductory portion. I scanned several hundred the other day from the 2007 folder, all uniformly excellent and not once do I recall seeing anyone writing about being taught how to leverage their credit card (which is not to say it didn’t happen). And I saw more than a few comments from students appreciative that they didn’t feel products were being sold to/pushed on them. (But I guess that’s just the mark of a great scam) The most frequent criticism I came across in the comments was that apparently the instructors were frequently late in restarting the class after breaks.

  19. This is where “Democrats are the real racists!” leads. They all played that game, and now they are inextricably a part of it. “Ho ho ho ho! The Oscars are so white! Ha ha, got you liberals good, didn’t I?” Idiots.


    February 29, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    • Yes, the turnabout game really isn’t as clever or effective as the GOP thinks it is. Instead you get “antiracist” posturing and groveling all around. Then the left ups the ante into Kafka territory.

  20. I agree that this whole Trump-KKK issue is absurd. Trump is no racist. He’s never associated with anyone remotely like David Duke. I believe his answer that he didn’t hear the name clearly when he was told that David Duke endorsed him. Trump had already disavowed Duke several days earlier, which the reporter asking him the question surely must have known. As much as I dislike Trump and will vote against him, I also believe in being fair. Ironically, this issue isn’t likely to get him the votes of actual while supremacists as much as more of the whole prole non-racist blue collar vote. Trump is likely to benefit from this episode, as he’s benefited from most other attempts to take him down. But no, I won’t vote for him now just because some people are treating him unfairly.

  21. “The MSM is so obsessed with the racism angle they are missing hitting Trump where he’s legitimately weakest.”

    In today’s America, racism trumps every other issue, as it were.

    • No they didn’t but more important is that the entire Fourth Estate punted on Obama’s close relationship w/Jeremiah Wright, Farrakhan, and Michael Pfleger. The New Yorker has a long adulatory article about Pfleger which hints at this. When Obama’s relationship w/Wright was exposed, he gave a windbag speech that the media predictably fawned over (“soaring rhetoric” – puke). You can look it up online and see what a bag of wind the whole thing is.

      Obama was intimately a part of a group of Chicago radicals (including Wm. Ayers) that quite simply hate America. One of these radicals is a raving, loony, three sheets to the wind anti-Semite. And as far as I know, Jake Tapper & Co. never said a freaking word about it.

      Naturally, I can’t resist a swipe at the alt-right in this matter. The ADL and the SPLC issued blistering reports on Farrakhan, but the hacks never followed up. If the ADL and the SPLC had so much clout, why did Obama slither away from these slimy associations?

      And he’ll continue to, because the left is completely masochistic towards blacks, and because even former presidents nowadays get treated like royalty. It’s sickening.

      • PS I have another theory as to why the press won’t write the truth about Obama. Because if the truth were known, that such an utter traitor had occupied the Oval Office for eight years, there really might be a violent revolution, and their own lives would be in jeopardy. Ignorance is safer.

  24. If you want to gain some idea as to what Hewitt is probably like in person, just watch National Lampoon’s Animal House. The Greg Marmalard character would be Hewitt.

  26. You’re just like the KKK except that you’re a more sophisticated version of it. Got it. Yes, the KKK is evil. They’ve killed people.
