Blaming Trump for racial tension, Kevin Durant says he wouldn’t visit White House if invited

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 09:50

Golden State Warriors small forward Kevin Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP, told ESPN on Thursday that he would not visit the White House if he and the NBA champion Warriors are invited.

Durant, who has never been particularly outspoken on political issues, said he wouldn’t visit the White House because he doesn’t “respect who’s in office right now,” referring to President Donald Trump.

It has long been a tradition for championship teams from major college and professional leagues to take a celebratory visit to the White House to meet the president, although the Warriors have not yet been invited.

Most recently, the defending NFL champion New England Patriots visited, surrounded by some controversy about how many players and staff appeared to have not attended.

“I don’t agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that,” Durant said. “That’s just me personally, but if I know my guys well enough, they’ll all agree with me.”

Durant did clarify, however, that his decision did not necessarily represent the views of the Warriors franchise.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has been an outspoken Trump critic (he once called him a “blowhard“) in the past but has said he wants the team to be open to the idea of visiting out of respect. Guards Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala have both indicated they would not attend.

A Washington, D.C., area native, Durant blamed Trump for escalating racial tensions and fueling the increase in public white supremacist activity in the U.S., saying things have taken a turn for the worst since former President Barack Obama left office and Trump was sworn in.

“I feel ever since he’s got into office, or since he ran for the presidency, our country has been so divided, and it’s not a coincidence.,” Durant said. “When [Barack] Obama was in office, things were looking up. We had so much hope in our communities where I come from because we had a black president, and that was a first.

“In my opinion, until we get him out of here, we won’t see any progress,” Durant said.

‘SNL’ star Tina Fey accidentally shows how badly Trump is triggering liberals

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 09:35

“Saturday Night Live” writer and comedian Tina Fey made a special appearance Thursday night on the show’s “news” segment, “Weekend Update,” to show how difficult it is to deal with President Donald Trump and his first term.

In the sketch, Fey offered a way to deal with all the emotions in response to Trump’s actions, and she inadvertently portrayed a picture of a liberal being triggered by every item on the president’s agenda.

“I know a lot of us are feeling anxious, and we’re asking ourselves, ‘What can I do? I’m just one person, what can I do?'” she said. “And so I would urge people this Saturday instead of participating in the screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support — maybe a Jewish-run bakery, or an African-American-run bakery — order a cake with the American flag on it, and uhm, just eat it.”

“OK, wait I’m sorry, how is that supposed to help?” Collin Jost, co-host of “Weekend Update,” asked.

“Love is love, Collin!” she responded, with cake in her mouth.

“And the next time when you see a bunch of white boys in polo shirts screaming about taking our country back, when you wanna scream, ‘It’s not our country, we stole it, from the Native Americans!’ And when you want to yell it, don’t yell at the Klan, Collin, yell it into the cake!” she said.

“Then when Ann Coulter crawls out of her roach motel and says, ‘Antifa attacked Republicans in Berkeley,’ and you’re like, ‘OK, yard sale Barbie, but the other side is Nazis and Klansmen! And also who drove the car into the crowd? Hillary’s emails?” she shouted.

“Sheetcaking is a grassroots movement, Collin!” She said later in the sketch, to loud applause. “Most of the women I know have been doing it once a week since the election!”

She also called House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) a “p***y” for not standing up to Trump.

The writers of “Saturday Night Live” has constantly used the actions of the administration as fodder for their sketches, and the media have showered the show with praise. Some reports indicated that Trump was upset with the show’s characterization of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and that Trump had considered firing Spicer over it.

Fey is well known for her impersonation of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin when she was former GOP presidential nominee John McCain’s running mate in 2008.

Heyer mom has one message for Trump, and it’s not “call me”

HotAir - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 09:21

Looks like the window has closed on the White House’s attempts to arrange a call between Donald Trump and Susan Bro. The mother of Heather Heyer, the young woman killed in Charlottesville by a neo-Nazi sympathizer, had kind words for Trump after his statement to the press about the incident on Monday. Now that she has had a chance to catch up after the funeral on Trump’s subsequent statements, Bro tells ABC’s Good Morning America that she has no interest in talking with the president. “I’m not forgiving that,” she tells Robin Roberts:


ABC Breaking News | Latest News Videos

“I understand that President Trump wants to speak with me, I’ve heard from his press secretary and a few other people, and it’s not that I’m trying to be calloused, it’s that I have no interest in speaking to politicians just to hear them say, ‘I’m sorry,'” Susan Bro said in an interview Thursday with ABC News. “If I felt like that’s all they wanted to say, that would be different, but I feel like I’m wanted to be used for political agendas and I’m resistant to that.”

One can hardly blame Bro for this sentiment. She tells Roberts that a number of politicians asked to take part in the funeral, which was covered live by the media, but she turned them down more from a sense of caution than specifics. “I don’t have enough experience to sort through that,” Bro says. “I’m just leery,I’m just leery. I’ve always been a bit of a cynic and a bit of a skeptic,” she continued, “and this has kind of added to that.”

On social media, some argued that her public thank you to Trump signaled that she agreed with his take on the incident. Whether or not Bro was aware of that, she’s aware now of what Trump said on Tuesday, and refuses to get drawn into any hint of endorsement for it:

Bro thanked Trump in a statement on Monday for “those words of comfort and for denouncing those who promote violence and hatred” but said today in an interview with Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America” that her opinion changed after she had time to watch news coverage of the Charlottesville protests after laying her 32-year-old daughter to rest on Wednesday.

“I hadn’t really watched the news until last night and I’m not talking to the president now, after what he said,” Bro explained. “I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters … with the KKK and the white supremacists.”

She continued, “You can’t wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying, ‘I’m sorry.’ I’m not forgiving for that.”

Bro still does have one piece of practical advice she would give Trump if she did ever speak to him:

When asked today if there was anything she would want to say to Trump, Bro said, “Think before you speak.”

Jake Tapper wondered whether that advice would get taken in this instance, and pointed out that Trump’s track record is a bit spotty on that point:

Thinks to self: Surely the president would never attack a grieving mother, even if she criticized — oh wait… https://t.co/Z8IQNAr5Kt

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) August 18, 2017

So far, all is quiet on the Twitter front. Trump only tweet this morning (so far) has been to reassure people that the Department of Homeland Security remains vigilant in the wake of the terror attacks in Spain. Perhaps the experience of this past week has made Bro’s advice even more recognizably good.

The post Heyer mom has one message for Trump, and it’s not “call me” appeared first on Hot Air.

Trump critic J.K. Rowling gives a backhanded compliment to the president

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 09:15

“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling has been a vociferous critic of President Donald Trump, and she continued that pattern with a backhanded compliment joking that he had unified the Middle East.

She posted the joke on her official Twitter account Thursday.

“Unbelievable. He actually did bring the Middle East together,” she wrote to her 11.7 million followers under a screenshot of a chyron headline from CNN that read, “Iran & Israel condemn Trump’s comments.”

Unbelievable. He actually did bring the Middle East together. pic.twitter.com/miP9MyVLsS

— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) August 17, 2017

The sarcastic tweet had been retweeted more than 110,000 times as of press time.

Rowling has been a vehement critic of the president, but she was recently forced to apologize when she helped spread a deceptively edited video that was meant to damage Trump.

Trump’s efforts to solve the intense hostility and tension in the Middle East hasn’t fared much better than previous presidents. Before the election he promised that he would move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv, the capitol of Israel, to Jerusalem. This promise has been delayed without explanation since his inauguration, but it would almost certainly inflame the region’s Muslim population.

The president’s friendship and support of the Saudi Arabian kingdom was in full display on his recent trip, alarming the Shiite foes of the Sunni family. Trump has also allowed his generals to pursue the Islamic State with few restrictions, which has caused their demise to hasten, but also resulted in controversial military actions criticized by his foes.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has a blistering lesson on how Trump should deal with white supremacists

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 08:50

Actor and former California Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger had some strong words for President Donald Trump on Thursday night about neo-Nazis and white supremacists and expressed them in a “lesson” to the president on how to deal with hate issues in the U.S.

Filming himself in a Twitter video and using props, Schwarzenegger got his point across bluntly. The video received more than 100,000 likes in the first 12 hours after Schwarzenegger shared it.

“There are not two sides to bigotry,” the former governor said. “And there are not two sides to hatred. And if you choose to march with a flag that symbolizes the slaughter of millions of people, there are not two sides to that. The only way to beat the loud, angry voices of hate is to meet them with louder, more reasonable voices.”

“That includes you, President Trump,” Schwarzenegger continued, jabbing his finger at the camera. “In fact, as president of this great country, you have a moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that you won’t stand for hate and racism. Let me help you write your speech a little bit.”

Schwarzenegger later pulled out a bobble-head doll of Trump and played puppeteer with the replica, pretending that he was speaking for Trump.

“The country that defeated Hitler’s armies is no place for Nazi flags,” Schwarzenegger said on behalf of the “president.”

He continued: “The party of Lincoln won’t stand with those who carry the battle flag of the failed Confederacy.”

Explaining that he was born in Austria just two years after World War II ended, Schwarzenegger said he knew what it was like to grow up with remnants of Nazi culture in his every day life.

“Growing up, I was surrounded by broken men — men who came home from the war filled with shrapnel and guilt,” Schwarzenegger continued, as powerful imagery of World War II casualties appeared on the video. “Men who were misled into a losing ideology. … And these ghosts who you idolize spent the rest of their lives living in shame. And right now they’re resting in hell.”

Antifa: It’s become necessary to destroy the town to save non-violence, or something

HotAir - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 08:41

The spirit of Bến Tre apologetics lives. The New York Times profiles the efforts of Antifa, the rebranding of leftist-anarchist provocateurs who have been around in one form or another for as long as the neo-Nazis against which they agitate. Echoing the infamous Vietnam-era quote “It became necessary to destroy the town in order to save it” but without any comprehension of its irony, the current face of Antifa insists that it takes violence to “protect” nonviolence:

Unlike most of the counterdemonstrators in Charlottesville and elsewhere, members of antifa have shown no qualms about using their fists, sticks or canisters of pepper spray to meet an array of right-wing antagonists whom they call a fascist threat to American democracy. As explained this week by a dozen adherents of the movement, the ascendant new right in the country requires a physical response.

“People are starting to understand that neo-Nazis don’t care if you’re quiet, you’re peaceful,” said Emily Rose Nauert, a 20-year-old antifa member who became a symbol of the movement in April when a white nationalist leader punched her in the face during a melee near the University of California, Berkeley.

“You need violence in order to protect nonviolence,” Ms. Nauert added. “That’s what’s very obviously necessary right now. It’s full-on war, basically.”

No, it really isn’t, not unless the two mobs have achieved state status. It’s full-on brawling and rioting, and there is a distinct difference. While much debate has swirled this week over whether one can draw a moral equivalency between Antifa and neo-Nazis and other white-supremacists groups, at least one fundamental equivalency cannot be denied. Both usurp the legitimate authority of the state to have a monopoly on public force in order to silence and intimidate others, which makes both equally dangerous to public safety and responsible public order.

Furthermore, as some of their more legitimate progressive allies have begun to realize, their actions in making that equivalency obvious erodes the credibility of their agenda:

Others on the left disagree, saying antifa’s methods harm the fight against right-wing extremism and have allowed Mr. Trump to argue that the two sides are equivalent. These critics point to the power of peaceful disobedience during the civil rights era, when mass marches and lunch-counter protests in the South slowly eroded the legal enshrinement of discrimination.

Give the New York Times credit for attempting to counter the image pushed by Antifa of a reactionary movement that solely arose to fight against the threat of neo-Nazis. This sect of radical leftism has been around a very long time; here in the Twin Cities, police arrested hundreds of them for plotting violence against the Republican National Convention in 2008. They rioted in Seattle during the World Trade Organization meeting in the 1990s. Unfortunately, even while discussing the movement’s history, the Times still buys into the idea that Antifa is a reaction solely to extremism on the other end of the spectrum:

Driven by a range of political passions — including anticapitalism, environmentalism, and gay and indigenous rights — the diverse collection of anarchists, communists and socialists has found common cause in opposing right-wing extremists and white supremacists.

They’ve found common cause in a lot more than that, as the record clearly shows. They aren’t interested at all in protecting non-violence. Antifa wants to use violence to achieve its own radical, extremist political ends. They don’t want to destroy the town to save it; they want to destroy the town in order to own and occupy it, and to impose its own totalitarian rule on the survivors. It’s long past time for the media to quit treating Antifa as some sort of romantic idealism and tell the truth about the danger it represents to democratic self-governance.

Chelsea Clinton likens Confederate statues to a celebration of Lucifer — and gets brutal blowback

The Blaze - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 08:25

Chelsea Clinton, Hillary Clinton’s daughter, decided to weigh in on the controversy surrounding the re-emergence of Confederate statues as a political debate and compared those remembered in the statues to “Lucifer.”

She posted the message on her social media account Thursday. “The story of Lucifer—who rebelled against God—is part of many Christians’ traditions,” she said. “I’ve never been in a church with a Lucifer statue.”

The story of Lucifer-who rebelled against God-is part of many Christians' traditions. I've never been in a church with a Lucifer statue.

— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) August 18, 2017

Clinton was apparently trying to associate Lucifer’s rebellion with that of the rebel Confederates in an attempt to show why Confederate statues should not be allowed to remain.

The tweet has received more than 16,000 retweets, including from horror author Anne Rice, who responded, “Excellent point, Chelsea: really a fine point. No, no statues of Lucifer. No statues of Judas either.”

Excellent point, Chelsea: really a fine point. No, no statues of Lucifer. No statues of Judas either. https://t.co/X7gXL3G9rx

Others on social media didn’t appreciate the comparison however.

There was one Chelsea Clinton fan who offered constructive criticism of her claim.

Wait most of the cathedrals in New York have at least one depiction of Lucifer. Just saying your brilliant though

Thank you Wesly for the correction, I had missed them clearly & will look when next in each. Still, do any church statues celebrate Lucifer? https://t.co/mKNvFAuv7f

Want a $400K grant to watch gay people drink?

HotAir - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 08:01

This week’s episode of our favorite game show, Guess Where Your Tax Money Is Going, is brought to you by the Free Beacon. The National Institute of Health is a common source of amusement or dismay (depending on your perspective) when it comes to handing out grant money for studies which sometimes appear to run far afield from their core mission. This year they added to that dubious list of accomplishments by issuing more than $400K for a study to determine “whether gender norms of masculinity and femininity lead LGBTQ individuals to drink too much.”

Yeah. I’ll just give you a moment to let that one soak in. And with that, let’s plow ahead.

The National Institutes of Health is spending over $400,000 studying whether gender norms of masculinity and femininity lead LGBTQ individuals to drink too much.

Trying to find the “meanings of intoxication” of sexual and gender minorities is the central question of a study that was awarded in late July.

The project will “examine the extent to which gendered norms shape risky drinking practices for sexual and gender minority (SGM) young adults,” according to the grant for the study.

The grant states that alcohol is an “integral component of bars and clubs.”

The wording of this grant contains all sorts of goodies, such as at least one acronym I hadn’t caught wind of yet. SGM stands for, sexual and gender minority. We also learn about HED. That would be, “heavy episodic drinking.” (Which we used to just refer to as five pm.)

The SGM tag is at least a bit troubling because this is clearly not a study designed to see if women are becoming depressed and drinking too much as compared to men. This is entirely focused on the LGBT community, so we once again see a federal agency adopting the unscientific language of the left and treating “sex” and “gender” as if they are two separate things. One might image that a group of doctors and scientists would demand at least some shred of proof that such a thing was possible before rewriting all of their guidelines and language, but such is the way of the world these days.

The lucky recipient of this grant is going to, “explore questions about meaning, context, and social practices related to drinking and intoxication among SGM young adults.” So I take it you’re hoping to figure out whether gay and transgender people become depressed and go get drunk? Let me save you some time and money. They do. They also become happy about things and go get drunk. And not to totally blow your mind here or anything, but lots of heterosexual people do also. It’s why the adult beverage industry has historically done so well during both boom times and recessions.

But at least this study is going to involve some people getting drunk. There are worse ways the National Institute of Health (and the rest of the federal government) spends your cash. Not very long ago NIH handed out $48,500 for someone to research and document the definitive history of people in Russia smoking tobacco. That same year Uncle Sam awarded $5K for the production of a video documentary about a fiddle player in North Carolina and $150K to study if debating politics with family and friends is too stressful. In what may be the best (or worst) example of all, the National Park Service spent more than $65K for a study to determine how rural insects react to light bulbs. (I really only wish I was making that last one up.)

Where does one sign up for all of these grants? If the government is rich enough to award cash to ask stupid questions, I’m quite sure that many of us are more than capable of pocketing the money and providing stupid answers. Is there a grant for studying the long term effects on beagles from staring at woodchuck burrows? Because I’ve got a head start on that project with plenty of photographic documentation. I could probably wrap this bad boy up in the next year or two for less than $250K. Sounds like it would fall under the National Science Foundation.

Hey guys… call me. I can also provide a lot of drinking data for your friends at NIH while we’re at it.
