Oh no, millennials are petitioning to start “National Millennial Day”

But why, though?

Two millennials’ attempt to battle negative millennial stereotypes not only reinforces millennial stereotypes — it will probably backfire and become a joke.

The leaders of the effort, James Goodnow and Ryan Avery, say they want to “stop fake news about millennials” because “Millennials are the biggest, most diverse generation in the nation. We’re also the most educated. We know human-caused climate change is real. We know why the Civil War started. We know what Aleppo is.” They call millennial stereotypes “alternative facts.”

Their answer to the stereotypes? Create a viral online petition to ask the White House and Congress to name June 19 as “National Millennial Day.”

Literally the most millennial response to a problem ever.

So… they want to fight the negative stereotypes about millennials…. by becoming the literal embodiment of those negative stereotypes?

One of the big ones is that millennials are very self absorbed. So…

I guess we could celebrate Millennial Day by taking 95,000 selfies that interfere with the lives and functions of everyone around us.

How about just trying to become functioning members of society? I don’t care how educated you think you are. If you can’t see beyond your own nose, you are of no use to society.

Notre Dame Students Walk Out Of Graduation To Protest Pence. The Crowd’s Reaction Is Priceless

A video of the walk-out is extraordinary. The crowd cheers when Pence is introduced, but boos loudly when the students rise to walk out.

Pence, always classy, didn’t acknowledge the walkout. But he did chide those purveying the current state of intolerance on campuses by saying in his address that “free speech and civility are waning on campuses across America.”

My mother actually told me about this yesterday, mostly because she was appalled by it. My mother is a democrat and doesn’t like the president or vice president, but even she admitted it was wholly disrespectful and wrong. She pointed out that if it had been my graduation and I had walked out on the vice president’s speech – regardless of who it was – she would have slapped me. And I pointed out that it isn’t something I would have done. I may have videoed it and critiqued it later, but walk out? Hell no!

It made it’s way into the news after that, and my mother continued to comment on it. The way the media has portrayed it, you would think it was this massive walk out that included a large portion of the graduates walking out during the speech. And my mother was beside herself that that many graduates would be leaving college with that level of disrespect.

So I opened this clip on my phone and showed my mother. The big deal the media made about it was a little overblown… as usual. As you can see (and was reported), it was less than 100 students that walked out. The vast majority of graduates stayed, some even stood and clapped when he took the podium.

I’m not disregarding the event. It was still massively disrespectful that anyone walked out on the speech. And I worry that these people are entering the work force now. Although as overly offended snowflakes, their prospects at getting and keeping a job are limited.

But as usual, the media made it out to be bigger than it was. Even my mother was astounded when she saw the actual walk out. It is a sign of the times, and something to always keep in the back of your mind as the media goes nuts over everything Trump does. Remember, Trump could fart into the wind and the media would make a huge scandal out of it.

Me? As I said… if it had been my graduation, regardless of the vice president at the time, I’d be there videoing the heck out of it, most likely for you guys. 🙂

Dem Leadership Looks to Squelch Impeachment Talk

Emphasis mine.

The Hill:

Democratic leaders have a message for those members of their caucus beating the drum to impeach President Trump: not so fast.

“I would suggest … there needs to be a full investigation first,” Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Wednesday. “We need to get to the facts, and let the facts lead where they may.”

In the eyes of several Democrats, however, the facts already lead to impeachment.

[…]

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) spoke out at a closed-door House Democratic Caucus meeting Wednesday morning to highlight the urgency of removing Trump, whom the Democrats increasingly see as a national security liability.

Almost simultaneously, Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) took to the House floor to trumpet the impeachment call he’d sounded earlier in the week. He characterized his decision as a “position of conscience.”

The highlighted area above is everything. I’m sorry, but it is.

The rule of law in the United States is not based off of feelings, no matter how much some of these lefties want it to be. As Ben Shapiro so often says, “Facts don’t care about your feelings.”

Everything coming out in the media recently has been quotes and things stated by anonymous sources, which is fine. But those aren’t facts. It’s someone else’s recollection, opinion, or feelings with nothing behind them. If it comes out that Trump did, in fact, do something that warrants impeachment, then great! Let’s start the impeachment proceedings. And if anything comes out that says his removal from office is warranted, then great! We can start those proceedings next (for those who don’t know it, impeachment is not removal from office). But you can’t base impeachment on something someone says they sort of recollect seeing in a memo, or hearsay. It has to be actual provable facts that can be presented in a court of law with no room for reasonable doubt.

Impeachment is no light matter. It should not even be discussed until actual facts are presented and reasonable doubt is erased. And so far, we haven’t seen any. All we’ve seen are feelings.

Breastfeeding is Apparently Anti-Feminist Now

I’m sorry, wait a minute.

Tucker is right… men can’t naturally produce milk for a child. So no, there isn’t another “natural” way to feed a child other than breast milk.

Is there a problem with women who can’t produce milk to use formula? No, of course not! You feed your kid however the heck you have to feed your kid!

Is there a problem with letting dad feed the kid from a bottle? NO! Of course not! Please, by all means, mix up some formula or – God forbid – use a breast pump and fill a bottle with breast milk. It’s a wonderful way for a father to bond with his child.

But to insist that breast feeding isn’t natural? I’m sorry… but how the heck did our ancient ancestors survive then? The cavemen weren’t going to the corner store for formula and warming it up in the microwave. The milk a woman naturally produces in order to sustain the life of her child is always more natural than feeding the baby a powdered mixture of fake sustenance you bought from the grocery store. And just because a man can’t produce that milk doesn’t mean mom can’t bottle it so he can feed the kid, too! And just because everyone has to be empowered in a group think kind of manner and all that great stuff doesn’t mean dad should be forced to be the sole feeder of the kid, either! Feeding is a bonding experience with your baby! You should both be taking the opportunity to feed the baby!

Breast feeding is natural! Period! I don’t care what you read somewhere or how empowered you are. If you are too empowered to feed your kid, don’t have one! And if dad is so much of a beta male that he’s crying in his romper because he can’t naturally feed the baby, why are you breeding with him anyway?!

You people are a walking first world problem!!!

Liberals now OPENLY calling for shutdown of conservative sites

AllenBWest.com

“Democratic lawmakers joined alt-left protesters who want to ban conservative news websites at a protest outside of the Federal Communications Commission, Thursday.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D. Calif.) told the crowd of protesters and antifa members to “stay woke” in fighting against FCC chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal to roll back Obama era net neutrality rules.

Politico Pro reported that four Democrats joined the protest, which included members of the alt-left groups who have targeted Pai and held protests in his neighborhood. Politico did not mention protesters wearing masks and identifying themselves as part of the antifa movement. They held signs advocating to ban news websites such as the Drudge Report and Breitbart.

“We must stay vigilant,” Lee said. “We must insist that our freedom of speech is preserved.”

Senators Ron Wyden (D., Ore.), Ed Markey (D., Mass.), and Rep. Jared Polis (D., Colo.) also “joined the activists” protesting Pai’s proposal, which would bring less regulation for Internet service providers.

The FCC voted 2-1 Thursday afternoon to begin the process of reversing net neutrality rules, including Title II, which subjected Internet companies to regulations on how they can manage traffic on their networks. The proposal will now be open to public comment for 90 days.

Politico mentioned Protect Our Internet as one of the groups that organized the FCC protest, but failed to mention the group’s ties to members of DisruptJ20 and antifa, which have been involved in violent protests against the presidential inauguration and conservative speakers on college campuses.”

Democratic Rep. Val Demings Tells Facebook Commenter: ‘My First Amendment Right Is Different From Yours’

When a commenter asked Demings if they ever found her stolen handgun and suggested that she be more responsible with her own firearms before talking about gun control for others, Demings offered a peculiar reply:

It’s unclear exactly what Demings meant when she said “My First Amendment right is different from yours.” Regardless, several Facebook users responded to her comment:

Yeah, I’m with Michael Louis Greenstein on this… how, exactly, are her 1st amendment rights “different” than mine or anyone else’s? Does she think she has a right to more 1st amendment rights? Does she think she gets to decide what is covered by the 1st amendment and what is not? Does she think it only applies to lefties? Most likely the last one there, because the lefties lately seem to believe they are allowed to say whatever they want, but if you disagree with them you can’t speak.
