Townhall – Liberal Elites are Even Ruining Hamburgers

Saw a link to this article in my E-Mail this morning and had to share it with everyone.  It may sound silly at first but read it and you will see the many truths in it.   So without further ado here it is.

Liberal Elites Are Even Ruining Hamburgers And They Must Be Stopped

Kurt  Schlichter

Liberals can’t be happy with simply ruining the lives of decent conservatives for cheap political gain. They have to ruin hamburgers, too.

The burger is the ultimate Normal food, and horrible liberal elitists are trying to screw it up with lame alternative burgers because they are terrible.

Let me be clear, to quote an awful ex-president: Nothing I write here is open to debate. I’m turning the epistemic closure thing back on the libs. It is impossible to disagree with my ground beef rantings, and if you do, you are racist, sexist, and a burgerphobic cisdinner hate criminal of hatred.

Let’s clarify something else. Hamburgers are the King of American Casual Food. You can eat it in a bar, you can eat it in a car. Just don’t eat it in some trendy coastal eatery because they’ll screw it all up and you’ll end up dreaming of a Big Mac.

Sloppy Joes are gross. They are burgers’ ne’er-do-well little brother, 35 and living in the basement nursing emotional damage because mom liked burgers better. And who wouldn’t? Sloppy Joes are orangey muck plopped onto a bun. They provide none of the firm but juicy consistency, or the satisfying interplay of extras and condiments, that make the burger nature’s perfect food. They are mere goo and are unworthy of a proud and free people.

Naturally, artisanal Sloppy Joes are probably about to become a thing.

Hot dogs are likewise terrible – what the hell is a hot dog anyway? With their troubling shape, unnatural smoothness, and nauseating consistency, the hot dog is a mutant entrée, a devolved sausage without flavor or purpose. You have to waste perfectly good chili – chili that should be in a bowl topped with sour cream in a just universe – just to make a hot dog taste like something.

Even the name is unappetizing, unless you are Obama. My kid says hot dogs are really tacos because of the bread V, and he makes a good point. Except tacos are tasty and hot dogs are awful.

Eat a burger, like a man, damnit. And don’t be a Fredocon and whine about how the bun has gluten.

Millennial elitist dorks are all about screwing up burgers. “Gourmet” burgers, they call them. But they are a sad simulacrum of true burgers, and a crime against nature. The menus of those precious gastropubs that spring up in the gentrified blue coastal urban centers are loaded with “specialty burgers” with cutesy names and inane combinations of ingredients. It’s sad. Unable to create anything of value, these goateed hipster monsters can only pervert and deform that which is pure and beautiful. A burger is simple goodness. And, as they do with everything else, liberals screw them up.

A burger requires, at the threshold, good meat. There lies the first problem. This meat must come from a cow. But many of these dorks will try to create a sort of patty from something else, like (shiver) vegan pea protein. Note that peas are terrible, and only by putting them on a burger in place of a beef patty can these offensive soft green nuts be made worse.

But the elite can even screw up meat. Somewhere along the line, maybe when the waygu craze started, they decided that soft, tasteless beef with the consistency of wet newspaper was the bomb. You get an $18 burger (I live in LA – air costs $1 a breath) with this fancy meat, and it’s like mush. Why is it so hard to make “good meat” actually good?

But it’s artisanal, which means overpriced and bad. “Oh, the cow was grass fed and massaged and hugged and it’s favorite band was Styx,” they’ll say, like I want to be friends with the damn Dinner Horse. I want to eat it, and I want it to taste like beef. But fancy elitist liberal beef doesn’t taste like beef. It tastes like ruined dreams and the Deep Thoughts of Kamala Harris.

Beef. Normal beef. You can fry it on the grill or cook it over a flame – see, I totally embrace diversity – but it can’t be some weird mushpatty. Not if you want a burger instead of some pathetic charade on a bun.

The bun. I’m open minded. You can do the traditional sesame seed style, or a potato roll. If you want to get kinky, throw it on rye for a patty melt. I will even accept a ciabatta in some cases. But a pretzel bun? What the hell is that?

Stop doing horrible things just to try to freak out the squares.

Cheese. Some of you eat burgers without cheese for reasons I cannot fathom. This is wrong and you are wrong. But worse than putting no cheese on your burger is putting the wrong cheese on your burger, thereby making it a wrong burger.

American cheese is the quintessential burger cheese, and the name probably explains why liberals hate it. Cheddar is acceptable. Bleu cheese? That’s borderline – sure, I’ve tried it, but who hasn’t gone through an experimental phase?

Swiss? Gross. Provolone? What’s wrong with you? Gruyere? Now you’re just screwing with us.

Things to put on burgers break down into condiments and other stuff. Optional condiments include mustard and mayonnaise. Not Miracle Whip. I am not even sure what that is. Also, no Sriracha, no guacamole, no BBQ sauce. Mandatory condiments are ketchup and more ketchup. One of a hamburger’s key roles is to serve as a ketchup delivery system. There’s this one trendy place in LA that will remain nameless and patronless that serves this weird tomato fruit roll-up it calls a “ketchup leather.” They got the leather part right. The burger, which hipster doofuses rave about, tastes like an old shoe.

Special sauce aka thousand island dressing aka ketchup + mayonnaise is an acceptable alternative to ketchup. Note that “ketchup” does not include “catsup” or grody Whole Foods/Trader Joe’s “organic” ketchup. The only good ketchup is mass-produced stuff you buy in a regular supermarket where they don’t sell kale.

Other stuff. Bacon? Not my scene but I won’t judge. Lettuce? Eh? Take it or leave it. Tomatoes? Yes. Pickles? Yes. Onions? Yes, grilled, fresh, or – if you are awesome – both. But nothing weird. No “tomato jam” or “onion chow-chow.”

It’s not hard. Don’t be weird for the sake of being weird and you’ll have a decent burger. Start messing with something that works and you get Obamacare.

Look. They’ve taken Hollywood. They’ve taken the media. They’ve taken the college campuses. And they’ve messed them all up. We can’t give up burgers, too.

My upcoming book Militant Normals: How Regular Americans Are Rebelling Against the Elite to Reclaim Our Democracy  contains no burger recipes, because normal people don’t need burger recipes. Normals take meat, throw it on a grill, put it on a bun, put some stuff on it, and eat it like the heroes they are.

And liberals? They screw up everything they touch. The arts. Academia. Dinner.

So, confirm your normality by rejecting burger mutations. And confirm Kavanaugh, too.

Yes, Opposing Voter ID Is UnAmerican

From the TownHall website:

Kevin McCullough Kevin McCullough |Posted: Aug 12, 2018 12:01 A

It was merely a comment, a reply, not even a full throated post on Twitter.

Shannon Bream of FoxNews’ ratings’ dominant prime time line-up had linked a post about a headline of an election related story in Ohio.

@ShannonBream: “Well, that’s an interesting headline: 170 Voters in Ohio Race `Over 116 Years Old,” World’s Oldest Person is 115.

Generating, as you can imagine it would, thousands of replies, I decided to add a simple one.

@KMCRadio: “If you oppose voter ID you’re unAmerican.”

Simple and to the point.

Twitter didn’t seem to think so. The arguments they made in response ran the gamut but the gist of them had to do with me being racist, elitist, and in some way attempting to throttle the possibility of a free electorate from participating in our grand republic.

They also seem to repeat the old meme about the lack of any need for Voter ID because there could not possibly be any attempt at voter fraud in 2018.

Now mind you if you checked out even a fourth of those commenting’s twitter feeds you’d find people wholesale buying into the idea that President Trump could commit fraud in the election cycle. They firmly believe that somehow Russia could sway exclusively rust belt democrats to vote against a woman who didn’t even campaign for their votes. And they-to a person-believed that the high dollar, one sided, special council investigation should continue through to its conclusion.

But could “voter fraud” occur in places like Ohio in 2018?

“Absolutely not,” their consensus.

Amanda Prestigiacomo reported this week that a northeastern Georgia precinct had nearly twice as many ballots cast in their primary elections in May, as there were total registered voters. The source on the Ohio numbers in that state’s 12th Congressional District was Eric Eggers, research director for the Government Accountability Institute-a good government outside group seeking to (as odd as it may sound) hold government accountable.

Evidently there is still an open investigation into voter fraud hanging over the Atlanta mayoral runoff from last December. And last may Ohio election officials cited voter fraud cases numbering more than 50 incidents from the 2016 elections.

Old Dominion University in Virginia completed a study in 2017 claiming more than 6% of adults who are non-citizens and living in the United States likely voted in 2016. That equates to more than 1 million illegally cast votes.

But whether or not it actually happens isn’t the point.

The point that should bother every true American-is merely-that it could.

In America we value things uniquely in our experience that other nations may not. In America we hold a certain sacredness to the process of the people speaking, deciding, determining, and governing. We esteem certain moral values in our founding documents. And all who become Americans should agree to these same ideals.

Because to not do so, and here it is, is to be “Un”-American.

Somewhere along the line, and maybe it was just hearing that screeching soundbyte over and over again of Hillary Clinton declare “that we have a right to dissent, and that to dissent is the essence of what it means to be American” we started believing that being against America was included in the definition.

But who believes that?

In our founding we reaffirm the worth and dignity of the human individual. We affirm that self determination for them (and each of us) will lead us to a more prosperous and better tomorrow simply because it is the individual relying upon the gifts and skills his Creator endowed him with.

Self determination shows up in no more important place than in our sacred voting booth. A place that is not intended, nor even allowed for those who are not citizens. A place that is unwelcome to those who have not taken the legally required step to swear allegiance first and foremost (as it pertains to nations and governments here on earth) to exclusively these United States.

This land is not a blank page, her people are not empty suits, and her resources are not a blank check.

Yet all of those and many other issues are directly determined by the sacredness of the act in the voting booth.

It is worth mentioning that it is equally unAmerican to have the right to vote and to not do so. Yet even in that you are expressing a self determination that you will live with the consequences of.

Requiring Voter ID in order to vote in our elections does nothing more than confirm the identity of who is casting that vote.

We’ve all seen and easily dismissed the claims that IDs are too hard to get, too difficult to obtain, too expensive, or too racially problematic.

Not ONE of those reasons is real.

Simply compare them to the access people have to IDs when they merely wish to operate an automobile and the fainting and crying comes to an end.

Voter IDs may not guarantee that as many people will vote in the next election as did the last. Maybe that’s a good thing.

But Voter IDs will guarantee that every vote cast is cast by a citizen of this nation and that will make the integrity of the process soar.

And adding more integrity to the ethic of our elections is definitively a pro-American thing to do.

 

 

Miss America: The Latest Institution Destroyed by the Left

Dennis Prager

Posted: Jun 12, 2018 12:01 AM

 

As I have documented repeatedly, the left ruins just about everything it touches: the universities, the arts, the elementary schools and high schools, religion, sports and ordinary, everyday interactions between human beings — especially human beings of different races. The latest examples — in just the last few weeks — are the Boy Scouts, sculpture and the Miss America pageant.

The left’s decades long attempt to radically change the Boy Scouts has ended in triumph. Now that the Boy Scouts is admitting not only older girls but also younger girls — as Cub Scouts — it is dropping “Boy” from its name and becoming Scouts BSA. Thanks to the left, the Boy Scouts, one of the most socially and morally constructive organizations in America, is no longer the Boy Scouts.

As a result of that, as a result of the decision to admit openly gay males as troop leaders (the Boy Scouts never asked potential troop leaders about their sexual orientation but did not allow openly gay troop leaders) and as a result of factors specific to the Mormon church, the largest sponsor of Boy Scout troops in America, the church has ended its 100-year relationship with the Boy Scouts.

Another victim of the left in recent weeks is the arts. Last week, The New York Times published a serious “review” on a major new “art work” at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The “art work” is a set of four giant piles of sculpted excrement. As described by Times writer Nina Siegal: “I walked into the excrement.

“There were four giant turds inside the 16,000 square feet of museum space. One mammoth piece of feces was reminiscent of a long, winding steel sculpture by Richard Serra. One was a brown spiral. Another resembled an enormous chocolate chip. Yet another featured intertwined layers with a gap in between that I could have crawled through …”

The artistic left is infatuated with feces, urine and menstrual blood. Last year, New York City’s famed Guggenheim Museum featured an all-gold toilet bowl into which visitors were invited to relieve themselves. As the exhibit was titled “America,” one could then literally urinate and defecate on America. Why not? The left does that to America and Western civilization every day.

The latest victim of the left is the Miss America contest. The Miss America board announced that contestants will no longer wear swimsuits or evening gowns because Miss America will no longer be about physical beauty. It will be about “the hopes and aspirations” of 52 women contestants.

My first reaction is: Why stop there? To be consistent with its new ideals, the event should no longer be televised but rather broadcast on the radio. Only then will the contestants’ looks be truly irrelevant.

The left, which has brought “sex week” to almost every college campus, which has introduced coed dormitories with coed showers and bathrooms, and which has told young women that sex without any commitment should be as much fun for them as it is for men, is now the guardian of modesty at the Miss America contest.

In particular, feminists hate it when women try to look sexy, especially in the eyes of men.

One of the left’s favorite terms to describe the Miss America swimsuit competition (and even the evening gown competition) is “dehumanizing.” In a long article on the Miss America decision, The New York Times quoted Julie Zeilinger, who founded “a feminist blog called FBomb”: “in 2018 this organization has realized it’s dehumanizing to compare and judge women’s bodies in front of a vast, international audience.”

This feminist charge is ubiquitous but never explained. Why is it dehumanizing?

One irony is feminists have argued for decades that women should be allowed to walk around topless, just as men can.

Another irony is that when non-Muslims argue that Muslim women wearing a chador is dehumanizing, the left charges them with intolerance and Islamophobia.

A third irony is women are as interested in seeing beautiful women in swimsuits as men are.

I was raised in an Orthodox Jewish home, and I recall my mother and father enjoying the Miss America pageant every year. They would discuss their favorites with each other, both of them perfectly at peace with the proceedings, as was the Christian majority.

Which raises a final irony: When America was far more conservative, far more religious and far more concerned with daily modesty in dress, and when it insisted that male students and female students reside in separate dorms at college, it celebrated the Miss America pageant with its swimsuit competition. That was a healthier America.

Inside of a few weeks, the left has gravely damaged the Boy Scouts, probably destroyed the Miss America pageant and pounded another nail into the coffin of art.

That’s what the left does best – ruins whatever it touches. That’s pretty much all it does.

What Should We Stop Teaching Younger People?

This is a reppost from a website called Quora.   I appologize for the cursewords contained in this but I felt that the message was well worth reading it.

What should we stop teaching younger people?

Gordon Miller
Gordon Miller, Entrepreneur and Investor

For God damn sure we should stop teaching them that they “deserve” anything. You don’t deserve shit in the world that you don’t go out there and get it for yourself. We now have an entire generation of kids who are now in the workplace that have grown up with “not keeping score because someone’s feelings will get hurt if they lose” and “participation trophies for everyone”. Well, I have a reality check and a wake up call for everyone, there is no such thing as a “participation trophy” for life and second place is still the first loser. You all need to purge yourself of this bullshit progressive idealism that you were spoonfed as a child and realize that if you don’t get off your ass and make a significant contribution to the world in some capacity you are going to have a hard fucking life ahead of you. Your mamma and your daddy didn’t want to tell you that shit because they wanted to be your “friend” and not your “parent”, but I am here to tell you, you have been fed a lie all your life and the real world isn’t going to give you a warm fucking hug. It is going to chew your ass up and spit you the fuck out!

If You Want To Stop Liberal Bullying, Start By Telling Them To Buzz Off

Kurt  Schlichter

Posted: Apr 26, 2018 12:01 AM

 Well, not “buzz.”

    But you get the point. We are experiencing an epidemic of liberals trying to push us around. And, since life is really just high school, except with older and stupider people, schoolyard rules apply. So when someone tries to bully, you smack him. Hard. Right in the Pelosi.

    That’s what we need to do the liberals when they form their creepy little social media lynch mobs. This nonsense about cowering and apologizing and begging for forgiveness from these petty tyrants needs to stop. Besides being undignified and shameful, submission just encourages them.

    Take whoever Shania Twain is. I understand she was once a country singer. Apparently, her image is calculated to project some sort of inoffensive, non-threatening Girl Power! vibe. You know, the kind of tedious “You go girl!” empowerment affirmation that temporarily eases the pain of its adherents’ lonely, cat-filled lives.

    We don’t need a man when we have you, Mr. Whiskers!

    Anyway, Shania recently manifested the awesome power of girlhood when liberals complained that she dared to say something that offended them – she said she would have voted for Trump if she wasn’t the one foreigner in America who didn’t vote. Basically, she said she was like 43% of Americans, and that’s far too extreme to be tolerated by the Twitterstapo. She surrendered and submitted to their wrath, groveling for forgiveness. Sure, she’s Canadian, but that’s really no excuse.

    So, they claimed her flowing brunette scalp. They cowed her and moved on to other conquests. But a whole bunch of her fans now think she’s a girl wimp. She alienated the people who actually liked her music to please a bunch of hipster doofuses and trendy internet scribblers who wouldn’t listen to her records if they were recorded on the last vinyl on Earth.

    Then contrast that capitulation with the righteous resistance of someone named Kanye West, who is no relation to Adam West though that would be the coolest thing ever. Now, I’m not familiar with him or his oeuvre because I essentially stopped listening to new music in 1987 when The Replacements released their last really great album, Pleased to Meet Me. But Kanye West, seems to be very, very popular with the kids. So he has some cultural heat, and when he decided to dissent, the Fahrenheit 451 firepeople knew they had to light that fire but quick.

    Kanye said in a tweet that he approved of Candace Owens, and the enragening commenced. Now, I met Candace at CPAC, and she’s an an impressive lady who doesn’t take a lot of Schiff. As a woman and a black conservative, she is targeted for all sorts of grief, but she fights back by fearlessly asserting the Founders’ vision of personal freedom and personal responsibility as an antidote to the poison of the Democrat Party. Naturally, this makes her hated by all the people you would be proud to be hated by.

    Well, not “buzz.”

    That’s how we all need to do it in our everyday lives. So many times, people are getting called racist or sexist or some other stupid slander and it’s all baloney, but for whatever reason some people feel compelled to apologize and grovel when they say something other people don’t like.

    Never apologize to liberals. It’s a sign of weakness.

    Liberals wield shame as cultural mace to pummel others into conformity. Most people are weak, and most people will conform. This goes triple for liberals – SJWs are happy to eat their own if there are no Normals around to feed on. Liberals are human sheep when they aren’t going full lemming. Never go full lemming.

    It’s about time that our default response change from “I’m sorry I gave offense” to “You’re an idiot for being offended and get out of my face before I slug you.”

    We need more Kanyes and fewer Shanias, more people willing to stand up to the slobbering pack of Twitter social justice geebos who have achieved nothing in life except to humiliate a few weak-hearted pushovers. These are bad people, and you empower them when you treat them like anything other than the garbage people they are.

    Don’t like what I say? Don’t like what I think? Don’t like what I write? Don’t like what I tweet? Good. The only thing I’m sorry about is that I haven’t said more things you don’t like. So, buzz off.

JOSE GARCIA AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

From the Bacon Bits Show webpage.     Also on YouTube are some audio talk shows that cover a myriad of subjects including this one and goes into gaming for those who are so inclined.   Anyway enoy this article – there is a wealth of information here.


JOSE GARCIA AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

Think back a year or two to some of the Facebook arguments you had with your liberal friends over illegal immigration. If you’re anything like me you ran into the argument that Obama was deporting illegals left and right. “He deported more people than George Bush!” the liberals told me proudly. Some even took to calling him the “Deporter In-Chief” as proof that their savior was indeed tough on illegal immigration and took border security seriously.

Now the easy counter to that argument was that Obama was counting border turnarounds as deportations, something no other President has done. This vastly inflated his deportation numbers. “But more turnarounds only proves he takes border security seriously” I was told time and again. It was a valiant effort from a group who would never admit Obama was wrong on anything.

You see, way, way back in 2016 it was fashionable, even noble, to be tough on illegal immigration and firm on border security. Even the most dedicated Social Justice Warriors were eager to tout the Deporter In-Chief as the man to fix illegal immigration. Why, Obama himself was once keen to fix the problem, saying this:

The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century,” Obama noted. “If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole—especially by keeping our workforce young, in contrast to an increasingly geriatric Europe and Japan—it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”

Flash forward to this week and notice the media coverage being given to Jose Garcia, who has lived in the United States for 30-years and is now being deported. The tearful interviews with his friends and wife, the heart-tugging tale of how he came to be here. You have to wonder, then, how many of these tales, these profoundly sad stories, have we missed? If the Deporter In-Chief was really taking the strong stance on illegals that I was told he was, is it possible there were 0 Jose Garcia like stories in his 8-years in office? Or were they ignored? And lest we forget, because no one in the MSM will mention this, Garcias first deportment proceeding was in 2015. Gee, who was President then?

Why, just last year, during the Presidential election, the left collectively embraced Hillary Clinton who once said:

“…we have to send a clear message, just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay. So, we don’t want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey.”

Heck, while a sitting Senator Mrs. Clinton said “I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants. We’ve got to do more at our borders. And people have to stop employing illegal immigrants.”

To people who doubted that tougher immigration polices were needed she challenged “come up to Westchester, go to Suffolk and Nassau counties, stand in the street corners in Brooklyn or The Bronx — you’re going to see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work and construction work and domestic work,” she said, later adding that those who employ illegals are a part of the problem.

So how did we get from “our candidate IS tough on illegal immigration” to “Republicans are racist meanies for wanting to get tough on illegal immigration” in a few years? Why is the left suddenly so up-in-arms that illegal immigrants are being deported when just 16 months ago they were bragging about it?

That’s an easy question. Their candidates did exactly what the left wanted them to do on immigration: Nothing. For years they’ve played the long con with the American public. Running candidate after candidate who paid lip service to the problem in an effort to appear centrist while having a wink-nod agreement with the hard core leftist base that they would, in fact, do nothing about it. Their master plan has unraveled and their bluff has been called with Trump and they hate it. Because for the first time in modern history someone is doing exactly what they said they would and confronting this growing problem.

Now they’re stunned and saying “Hey, Mr. Trump, we have an unspoken arrangement here in Washington. We tell the plebes we will get tough on border security, we talk about it all the time, but ultimately we do nothing, The public, you see, is moronic and easily placated. You have no business breaking that decades old agreement.”

The left has carefully crafted a pyramid scheme for decades wherein they do nothing about illegals when they arrive, offer them all the incentives they can to stay, and count on it turning into a sob story later on so they can shriek “But he’s been here 10 years he has a life here now you monster!”

The longer they can continue to do nothing, the longer the timer can run and the newest batch to cross the border can turn from “illegal immigrants” into sob stories for the media to tell.

If you don’t act now, if you don’t make the hard decisions now, if you don’t enforce the law NOW, then in 20-years we have a whole new batch of Jose Garcias who will, at some future date when the left needs to demonize someone, magically turn into someone undeportable. It’s a never ending merry-go-around that Trump wants to stop from spinning and the left cant stand it.

After all these years someone is finally doing what they said they would about illegal immigration. Trump isn’t only keeping his promise, he’s fulfilling the hollow promises made by Obama and Hillary on the issue. The promises they never for one second intended to keep.
