From The Babylon Bee:
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Only days after delivering Trump’s articles of impeachment to the Senate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced they are already working on a brand-new impeachment for rising right-wing menace and future GOP presidential candidate Candace Owens.
“This woman is dangerous, extremely dangerous,” said Pelosi to reporters. “She’s an outspoken African-American woman who doesn’t think the way African-Americans are supposed to think. We must impeach her immediately to prevent her from running and save our democracy! Good morning! Wednesday morning!”
“This is, like, such a sad day for our country,” said Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “All this time, most of us didn’t even think Candace Owens was a real person, but rather a haunting specter from our most terrifying nightmares. It’s terrible to think that a woman who repeatedly tried to have me killed would be allowed to run for president.”
According to historians, if Candace Owens is successfully elected, she will be America’s first black president– at least, as far as they can remember.
Now it’s GoFundMe who’s deciding acceptable and unacceptable causes. From Jonathan Turley at jonathanturley.com:
I previously wrote a column about the rising calls by Democratic leaders and activists for different forms of public and private censorship. Indeed, the recent extreme demands and controversy at the New York Times shows how speech controls have been a virtual article of faith for many. Twitter’s actions against Trump tweets are another example of the inconsistent use of such controls. Now GoFundMe has taken it upon itself to censor causes that it views as offensive in closing down a fundraiser by conservative political commentator Candace Owens in support of an Alabama cafe whose co-owner criticized the George Floyd protests. The question again is not whether we agree with such sentiments but the free speech implications of these forms of private censorship. Rather than respond to such controversial statements, critics today focus on silencing the speakers or barring their views or causes to be heard by others. What is interesting is that, by abandoning neutrality, GoFundMe is now affirming that it does regulate content and will face demands for more such action. That could undermine the position of these companies against the loss of immunity under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
Birmingham’s Parkside Cafe, whose co-owner Michael Dykes said Floyd was a “thug” and protesters were “idiots” in a text message to a co-worker that was posted online. The comments in my view were offensive and inflammatory but they are not my views. Dykes was expressing his personal view and the result is that he was given death threats and the cafe boycotted.
Owens, who is African American, shared the views of Dykes. She has also been criticized for statement like this one:
“The fact that he has been held up as a martyr sickens me. George Floyd was not a good person, I don’t care who wants to spin that. I don’t care how CNN wants to make you think he changed his life around, He was just after his sixth or fifth stint in prison.”
Obama was probably a high-water mark that will endure many decades for Democrats’ support among blacks. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
With black unemployment the lowest its been since records began nearly 50 years ago, and black support for President Trump jumping to 36% vs 19% last year, Trump-supporting rapper Kanye West has designed T-shirts urging blacks to leave the Democratic party in a “Blexit,” reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
Unveiled Saturday at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit in Washington by TPUSA’s Communications Director Candace Owens, “Blexit” is designed to “open a conversation we have needed to have.”
