Cher: No One But Whites Safe In America

              After a Supreme Court ruling that permits the Pentagon to restrict military service for transgenders, Cher tweeted: “No One Is Really Safe In trump’s America Unless They’re MEMBER OF MAR-A-LAGO, LIVE IN trump TOWER, WHITE, OR WEARS MAGA HAT.” (Notice her shoddy syntax and her odd use of capitals… and the fact that “Trump” is the only word that she doesn’t start with a capital letter. Cute).
             NOTHING COULD BE FARTHER FROM THE TRUTH. cher OBVIOUSLY has a bad case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. The truth is that EVERYONE BUT Trump supporters and those wearing MAGA hats are safe in America. This has been made even more abundantly, demonstrably clear in recent days. Students from Covington Catholic High School were recently made the victims of vile slurs outside the Lincoln Memorial. Yet, the mainstream media were quick to accuse them of racist, bigoted, intolerable behavior, based solely on a brief, crafted bit of film footage, hearsay, the fact that some of them wore MAGA hats, and a deep-seated animus towards anyone who doesn’t hate Trump’s guts.
This resulted in Hollywood producer Jack Morrissey tweeting that the “MAGAkids” should be exterminated by putting them “screaming, hats first, into the wood-chipper.” And MSNBC host Chris Hayes  opining: “America is already the most punitive developed nation on Earth for poor people, people of color, those who don’t have Brett Kavanaugh’s pedigree of the authority of the badge or $10,000 a year to spend on private school tuition or money to hire a PR firm. We throw millions of lives onto that bonfire every year, they just don’t normally look like teenagers in MAGA hats.” Kavanaugh was also put through the figurative wood-chipper, presumption of innocence be damned. 
And it is the “teenagers in MAGA hats” that have endured slurs, insults, and threats-- even after complete, unbroken video footage and eyewitness accounts should have completely exonerated them. Even their own school has been reluctant to absolve them of their non-existent misbehavior, likely because of the MAGA hats. “Make America (or France/Peru/Albania/Insert-Your-Favorite-Nation) Great Again” hats could not possibly be deemed offensive in a sane society. Were “Hope and Change” hats considered offensive in the Obama era? Did those who liked the message not think hope and change would help make America great again? Were those who wore them routinely threatened by conservatives?
It is leftists who are the bullies. It is leftists who stop at nothing to silence dissent. It is leftists that are quick to excuse violence. And the hypocrisy of the left is literally indescribable. Chris Hayes has the bully-pulpit privilege of being in the mass media. cHER and Jack Morrissey share Hollywood privilege that MAGA-wearing students and nearly all the rest of us could never dream of. All three are white.
             cher's statement is akin to Joseph Goebbels saying: "No one is really safe in Hitler's 1,000 year Reich unless they're Jewish and wearing a yamaka." 
And, speaking of Russian/foreign agents, why hasn’t cher, i.e. “Hanoi Jane” been accused of being one? We have pictures of her sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. She went on the Voice of Vietnam radio to implore American troops to lay down their arms. She was part of a group called FTA (F*ck the Army) that worked to counter Bob Hope and the USO’s mission to provide succor and entertainment for U.S. military personnel.
What would really make America great again would be for those in the Media-Entertainment Complex to stick to the facts and entertain-- not indoctrinate-- respectively.
