BREAKING: Ohio mass shooter…. oh nevermind….

Have you ever seen huge news story disappear so fast?

cnn-student-attack-2016-11-29_091258Nothing in recent memory has vanished quite as quickly as the story of a “another” “mass shooter” at a university campus. CNN spent two weeks with 148 expert panelists discussing how Donald Trump said something mean to an overweight beauty pageant winner. But this story? Vanished after two hours.

I knew right away when CNN and MSNBC cut away to another story about Trump’s latest tweet, that the Ohio State University suspect was not a “right-wing” nutbar, the weapon used was not an AR-15 “assault rifle,” he was not a “white supremacist,” and he was not “alt-right” nor even a (deplorable – wink!)  “Trump supporter.” Otherwise, they’d still be on it. All over it.

No instead, I figured, the guy’s name was way more likely to be either Muhammad or Abdul, he was going to be a Muslim, and the story might not involve guns, but might involve Islamist jihadist terrorism, and he might be a refugee from a Muslim country. Turns out his name is Abdul, he’s a refugee from Somalia, he used his SUV and a butcher knife, and it was all about jihad and killing “a billion infidels.”

Network coverage over.

Of course when you do your own searching (because there’s nothing on TV about it except a bit on Fox News Channel), you find lots of interesting information, aside from killing “a billion infidels” (CNN: “yawn”). What struck me, reading his Facebook post, was that he sounds exactly like half the millennial snowflakes on U.S. campuses today. (And unlike the many students across the U.S. who had to take a stress day off due to Trump winning the election: here’s word from Ohio State University posted after the terrorist attack: “5:09 p.m.:  UPDATE: All classes on the Columbus campus will resume normal schedule as of Tuesday, November 29th.”)

Jim Geraghty had a great line in his Morning Jolt this morning:

Is this guy a jihadist? Sure. Even worse, he’s a whiny Millennial jihadist, who thinks that everything in life is so uniquely unfair to him, and that he’s unjustly victimized everywhere he goes.

Fact check: True.

I can understand the liberal Trump-hating media suddenly finding itself having to avoid referring to Trump’s seemingly prescient campaign remarks about the potential dangers of Somali refugees immigrating to the U.S. en masse without extreme screening, but this Tweeter had a good Washington Post-mocking take on it:

Get ready for 4 to 8 years of picayune media. Today: sneers at “Make America Great Again” Christmas ornament

Let me start by saying I want one! You can get them for me here: https://shop.donaldjtrump.com/

For the “holiday” season (Christmas to the rest of us), the sneering liberal media (NBC station KING5 in Seattle in this case but they’re all doing it) is gathering all their impotent rage and slamming the Trump Christmas ornament, for sale at Trump’s campaign store.

They’re all doing it just as smugly as possible, trying to make a joke out of it, and in so doing, predictably, they’re failing, again, and moreover, failing to see that Trump already beat them to it. Again, the joke’s on them. I’ll bet the Trump shop has sold tens of thousands more of these babies than they might have otherwise.

The media and their Hillary supporters are all like “As if !!!!  Like it’s $149 so like what a rip, huh?  Who’s gonna spend $149 on a Nazi hat, ‘n stuff right? What an idiot! Racist!” 

And they’ve filled the Amazon.com page selling the stuff with comments slaying Trump and his audacity to sell stuff, and as if I had to tell you, the “fact” that Trump is a racist whiste supremacist Nazi dumb-ass and Jew-hater with stupid hair. Comment tweeted by liberals at least 200,000 times: “Trump is making Amazon comments great again.” Calling Trump a Nazi is what’s “great” to liberals.

So thanks for the laugh, libs.

The Seattle NBC affiliate joins absolutely every other smug media in failing to mention that the Obama White House also sells a slew of rather expensive and rather useless Obama trinkets. Let’s look at what liberals apparently buy!

barack-obama-_memero-500-px-2016-11-24_122823

I’ll take four! No not really, I have food and clothing to buy for the the next year and a half! But liberals don’t you worry. There’s lots of stuff for you if you’re on a tight budget getting ready for your emigration to much more expensive (and currently liberal, but don’t hold your breath) Canada, and thus you may not be quite up to paying $5,495 too for that Obama trinket.

And for Trump fans, new White House stuff is on its way!

I fancy the notion that the Obama White House gift shop politburo had the full range of Hillary’s portrait and hot chocolate mugs and trinkets all ordered-up, printed, and and ready to ship, but then that awful Donald Trump came along and wrecked it all! But don’t get even sadder than you already are, liberals, leftover Hillary campaign wear might be a good buy these days for your (((failure))) memorabilia collection. Try this one on for size:

hillarywear-2016-11-24_113123

I’m no fashion guru, but it looks like a hot mess to me. And $60? Holy not-ready-for-Walmart. (Since it’s sold out, I’m wrong apparently — or there are a lot of liberals walking around looking like hot messes. I’m betting on the latter).

But for libs, this item hits you with lots of yummy lefty PC imagery and buzzwords:

1. First they call Christmas “the Holidays.” Check!

2. Then it’s a “Limited edition” which by lucky chance speaks to how they view themselves  — their elitism and sense of moral and intellectual superiority over most Americans.  Check!

3. The “100% organic cotton” is just fun — like anybody on earth is thinking “Yeah! Down with cotton grown with chemicals!”  Check!

4. The fact that it is “Union printed” is actually just hilarious. This is a “dog whistle” if ever there was one. It sets up a whole bunch of nationally divisive ideological arguments:

– it says unions workers are good, non-union workers are bad
– it’s class warfare
– it’s non-inclusive
– it’s inherently intolerant
– it’s divisive generally, driving a wedge between Americans needlessly

…which is all just classic liberal/Democrat.  Check!

5. “Made in America” is de rigeur for U.S. presidential candidates’ swag.  Check!

6. And what about males/female sizes? Nah! “Unisex” — like liberals want all people to actually be.  Check!

Golly you’d think she’d have won with all that PC-crap-speak.

For you even deeper socialists, there was Bernie Sanders swag too — his store appears to be shut down now, possibly heading for Cuba. He did accept credit cards, which is hilarious inasmuch as that’s so capitalist! But man! $30 for a simple T-shirt? Socialism costs so much!

The biggest graphic on the page by far is this union-made graphic (made much smaller to fit on this web site):

bernie-union-made-2016-11-24_124350

Happily, so many union workers simply made those trinkets for Team Hillary and Team Bernie, and then when they were laid-off, voted for Trump. Now they’ll likely get lots of work making stuff for America.

Liberal Seattle switches out Christmas celebrations for Black Lives Matter “holiday” protests

In the article that the Seattle TV station KING5 (NBC) linked to in their tweet about the scaling back of the “holiday tree” lighting celebration, they sheepishly — or downright purposely — neglected to name names (I mean besides the obvious renaming of Christmas to “holiday”): Seattle scaling back its annual holiday tree lighting celebration […]

DNC now seems to admit Hillary Clinton wasn’t “the change candidate.” Or even a good one.

Everybody had to laugh when during the campaign Bill Clinton tried to | pass Hillary off as a “change candidate.” This is a change election. The question is what kind of change do we want? She’s the best darn change-maker I ever met in my life The Democratic Party seems to beg to differ. And here’s the […]

A lot more Canadians leaving for U.S.A. than the other way around

For all the breathless talk from the liberal media of liberal Americans leaving the U.S. for Canada in the wake of Trump’s election (as if it’s a new concept which isn’t heard during and after every election), as usual, the opposite is actually the truth. Any year. Every year. The truth is that far more […]

I think the media must WANT to be wrong about everything

Last night the financial market elites (not individual folks) freaked out when they figured out their media got it all wrong, and Donald Trump was going to win. The cool kids were anti-Trump, because they watch CNN (or worse). The stock market futures markets were tanking. The liberal news media reported the crap out of […]

Conservative Snippets for November 4 2016

Went through some articles about conservatism in my quest to get ready for the “NewRepublicanParty,” which will begin post-election, and clearly way post-large-hangover. Thought I’d share my bounty with you. Let me start with this amazing read from the Heritage Foundation: A Blueprint For Reform (PDF file), a read which I’ve only just begun. It […]

Trump-Hate/Vote-Hillary -style daily “news” papers aren’t only in the USA. Blame Canada (too).

I posted this at ProudToBeCanadian.ca, but I thought it was interesting for Americans too. As I said there, I did this sort of thing already this week (here at BoldColors), but it’s so exemplary of the amazing, glaring, anti-Trump and pro-liberal-leftist bias of mainstream news media — that I had to do it again. (And yeah, no, this […]

Washington Post/Campaign to Elect Hillary Clinton “News” Paper

The Washington Post seems to be trying to give the New York Times a run for its money in a concerted effort to elect Hillary Clinton — and spread their utter disdain for Donald Trump (…while also continuing to advance their liberal-left agenda daily). So I marked-up today’s edition to show you just a few […]

Holy inventory, David Limbaugh

This fight between Americans in an increasingly divided America (and people in other countries too) about who’s worse: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump — I’ve never experienced anything like it. I normally like a good battle between good candidates. This battle is not that. They’re both terrible candidates in their own ways, and arguments about […]
