The recent “Women’s March” that was basically a test activation of the protesters we’ll be seeing for the next four years and who exist only to try to undermine the West had this as one of their prominent visuals:

It’s meant to be a powerful visual, but to anyone with a lick of sense, comes across only as powerfully offensive.  It takes a symbol of liberty – the US flag – and turns it into a symbol of oppression and subjugation – the hijab.

Even at absolute best the hijab is a symbol of voluntary submission to a rigid totalitarian theocratic patriarchy (oh, the irony!).  But to an objective observer looking at how the hijab exists as a garment forced on women in much of the world, that image above is wrong on a lot of levels.

Kraut and Tea covers it in harsh detail, breaking it down (also be advised there are graphic images as the video goes along – images of actual abuse of women that was not being protested during the women’s march):

The instances of Islamic murder of women as “honor killings” he discusses in the video are only in his native Germany.

But this happens everywhere in the world.  Amina and Sarah Said were murdered in the US by their own father in 2008.

I’ve been following Sargon of Akkad for a while, and his takedown of the state of the media after We the People elected Trump is good stuff and covers a lot of ground, and covers some of the media/progressive/leftist politician collusion as well:

He’s wrong on a couple things at the end (mainly a rosy view of Snowden and Manning that they don’t deserve), but one of the reasons I like the videos he produces is that I don’t always agree with him, and he tends to show his work on arguments so even if there’s disagreement, it’s reasoned disagreement.

Stephen Crowder’s rant tearing into The Young Turks for being arrogant swaggering media leftist jackasses is wonderful as well:

There are some on the right, however, who want to apologize for upsetting their Hillary-supporting friends.  Sadly, thus:

Sad only that it doesn’t go on longer.

Deplorables Victorious

Good job.

It was a long, long night, and a narrow victory in some states, but those victories took huge amounts of work.

This was a success that is crucial to the nation.  Congrats and thanks to all that made it happen.

Update: It’s 2 PM and we have video of machines that take Trump votes as Hillary:

 

Well, it’s only 1PM on election day, but there are already reports of voting machines spontaneously switching votes to Democrats:

There are also reports of machines going down and shortages of paper ballots.

WASHINGTON COUNTY – Personnel at the Washington County Clerk’s Office confirmed to St. George News around 8 a.m. that at least some of the electronic voting machines throughout the county were not working. As accounts came in from would-be voters, it became apparent that paper balloting was the voting method in many places, with some precincts running short on balloting supplies.

Again:

Three-quarters of all voting machines in Washington County, Utah, broke down early Tuesday due to improperly coded memory cards, County Clerk Kim Hafen told VICE News.

Election officials scrambled to issue paper ballots in some locations, which quickly ran out, according to reports online. Paper ballots were not offered in other locations, such as St. George and Hurricane, local newspaper The Spectrum reported.

It’s almost as if the Soros-funded leftist Secretary-of-State Project just went quiet and continued finding workarounds to elect leftists by deciding who counts the votes.

And let’s not forget that we know Hillary was involved in shenanigans of these kinds:

More from Project Veritas, with more admissions and more info.

Seems to me this was the kind of reporting 60 Minutes used to do decades ago.

O’Keefe promises a few more videos detailing more of this sort of corruption.

Mercers’ Statement On Trump Scandals

Via WaPo:

“If Mr. Trump had told Billy Bush, whoever that is, earlier this year that he was for open borders, open trade, and executive actions in pursuit of gun control, we would certainly be rethinking our support for him. If he had admitted to Mr. Bush that he had profited privately by allowing the sale to Russia of 20% of US uranium deposits or that he had amassed his personal fortune not by hard work in the private sector but by selling favors to foreigners on the American taxpayers’ dime, we would certainly be rethinking our support for him. If he had argued that he needed both a public and a private position on issues facing the American public, we would certainly be rethinking our support for him. And finally if Trump had serially terrorized and silenced the victims of violent sexual assault whom he feared could damage his political career, we would most definitely be rethinking our support for him.

“Donald Trump’s uncensored comments, both old and new, have been echoed and dissected in the media repeatedly in an effort to kindle among his supporters a conflagration of outrage commensurate with the media’s own faux outrage. Can anyone really be surprised that Mr. Trump could have said to Mr. Bush such things as he has already admitted saying? No. We are completely indifferent to Mr. Trump’s locker room braggadocio.

“The same media that resolutely looked away when the most powerful man in the world, a sitting U.S. president with multiple violent sexual assaults to his credit, snared an impressionable young intern in his web and ruined her life, now expects us to gasp with revulsion at Mr. Trump’s irreverent comments. America is finally fed up and disgusted with its political elite. Trump is channeling this disgust and those among the political elite who quake before the boombox of media blather do not appreciate the apocalyptic choice that America faces on November 8th. We have a country to save and there is only one person who can save it. We, and Americans across the country and around the world, stand steadfastly behind Donald J. Trump.”

Pretty much.  We’re down to two choices, and with Clinton who’s been there for 30 years and has been a problem, we know it’ll end poorly for the nation.  With Trump, there may be some things that come out poorly, but it’ll certainly be a better future than Hillary offers.

Milton Friedman said you could rarely get the right person into the position to do the right thing, so what mattered was getting the wrong person who ends up in that position to do the right thing.

With virtually any of the other primary candidates, those of us on the right/libertarian/conservative/classic liberal side would’ve found our candidate doing better.  But we got Trump, who does seem to have learned things during his run, and does seem to have changed a bit (not a lot, but a bit).  And we’re going to have to support him, or we risk ending up with Clinton & Kaine, generations living under a leftist Supreme Court, and a nation further fundamentally changed by elites.
