The Washington Post: Opinion- Anne Applebaum: 100 Years After The October Revolution, Bolshevism is Back & We Should be Worried

Source: The Washington Post-
Source: This piece was originally posted at The New Democrat

Anne Applebaum in her Washington Post column seems to be arguing that the New-Right or Alt-Right both in America and in Europe, come from leftist movements and we really aren't talking about right-wingers here, but Far-Leftists who are now backing right-wing Nationalist candidates, because these Nationalist candidates and politicians, are also anti-multiculturalism, integration, globalization, perhaps share certain fundamentalist religious beliefs when it comes to cultural issues.

I hope Anne Applebaum is not making this argument at least from pure partisan lens and is someone on the Right who simply can't admit that there are extremists and fringe elements on her side of the political spectrum. Which is what right-wingers Hugh Hewett and Jeffrey Lord do all the time when they're questioned about some extremist or fringe movement on the Right, there response is always something to the affect, what about these extremists on the Left, or the extremists that are being talked about are really left-wingers. In an attempt dodge the issue.

Hyper-Partisans on the Right argue all the time that Neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan, are actually leftists. Or that it was Progressive and Liberal Democrats, who fought against and blocked civil rights legislation in Congress in the 1960s. Even though the opposition to those laws actually came from Neo-Confederate right-wing Dixiecrats in the Democratic Party who are Republicans today because of the civil rights law and the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s. And besides, a lot of people on the Right who make these arguments that Left were the ones blocking civil rights legislation, don't support those laws today.

As far as Nationalists in America and even Neo-Confederates in America who backed Donald Trump and the Republicans who still back President Trump in Congress especially in the House of Representatives, they're part of the right-wing populist Tea Party movement of the late 2000s and earlier part of this decade. Representative Steve King from Iowa, is inline with President Trump on all the cultural and economic issues, as well as foreign affairs. Who sees multiculturalism and non-European immigration as a threat to American culture. Right-wing author and columnist Ann Coulter, is one of the princesses of the Alt-Right, has been one of Donald Trump's biggest supporters since he declared his presidential candidacy in 2015. Same thing with right-wing Nationalist columnist and author Pat Buchanan, who has backed Donald Trump from day one.

We're not talking about Communists or even Democratic Socialists when we're talking about Donald Trump's Nationalist base in America. We're talking about blue-collar populists from the deep South and Midwest, who are primarily European-American, as well as Protestant, but Catholic as well, who believe their America is disappearing and see immigration as a threat to their way of life and culture in America.

Donald Trump who is no genius when it comes to public policy certainly and doesn't even read legislation and policies that comes out in favor of, before changing his mind the next day after hearing from people who disagree with the policy because they've read it and understand it, but Trump doesn't have a keen political eye. And saw a huge opening and feeling in the country and way to tap into it and form his own political movement that he use to get to the White House. Even though 10-15 years ago you cold probably accurately describe Donald Trump as a New York Liberal Democrat.

The Washington Post: Todd Townsend & Carol Cordon Bleu- What if Hillary Clinton Had Won?: Department of Satire

Source: The Washington Post-
Source: This piece was originally posted at The Daily Review

Imagine a President Hillary Clinton if you can just for a minute and especially considering the current President of the United States., that shouldn't be too scary.

Millions of men who are on the Alt-Right and the Nationalist -Right in America, would be protesting daily about what they see as a radical feminist Communist in the White House, who seeks to eliminate all forms of masculinity and manhood. And transform all the wealth from Caucasian-Americans, to all racial and ethnic minorities in the country.

Fox News with a daily as well as 24 hours not so special coverage about what they call the criminal in the White House and her attempts to destroy what they call their traditional America.

Had Hillary Clinton won the presidency, Republicans would probably still control the House, but there'a a reasonable chance that Democrats could have won back the Senate, because there would've been a higher Democratic turnout in states like Pennsylvania and Florida. And perhaps Democrats would have won the Senate even if there was a 50-50 split. And we would see House Republicans launching new investigations in to the lives of the Bill and Hillary Clinton. Making the Ken Starr investigation from the 1990s look like not just a fishing expedition, but fishing festival. Wait, the Ken Starr investigation was a fishing expedition.

Perhaps the Christian-Right leaves America and goes to Saudi Arabia or Iran, where its still okay and acceptable to treat girls and women like property. Since they'll no longer be able to do that with a Clinton Administration in America. Judge Roy Moore would be one of the first so-called Christian-Conservatives packing his bags and out on the first flight to Riyadh or Tehran.

We'll never know this for sure, but we do know that you still have a large Donald Trump base in the Republican Party who views President Trump as their cult leader. And won't criticize anything that Trump does including not paying his taxes, because Donald Trump is their cult leader. And if he does something it must be okay to them because he did it. And no godlike cult leader can ever be wrong according to them. But without a Donald Trump, these Republicans would return back to Planet Earth at least even if its just for a visit, to stop at all costs Hillary Clinton from doing her job as President of the United States had she won in 2016 and try to prevent her from finishing her first term.

The Week That Was: Gun Control, Michael Flynn, Roy Moore & Veterans Day

Source: VA.Gov-
What I want to do with this section is give readers my take on what happened during the previous week and the current day. Hopefully The Week will turn into the The Day or The Daily Take. But my daily routine, as well as energy level especially for someone who is not a coffee or Starbucks junkie , and doesn't use illegal narcotics either, will determine how often I'm able to do this. I'm also going to do this from a lighter side. At least lighter compared with talking about, I don't know Syria, or the latest gun tragedy that seems to only happen in America, tax reform to use as examples. But with how depressing American politics has become in the late eight years or so, speaking lighter than those issues shouldn't be that difficult, unless you're actually talking about those issues.

I'm wouldn't even dare dream about trying to make light of the tragedy in Texas last Sunday. The current United States national debt of some twenty-trillion-dollars (which is also not a laughing matter, if you have to pay the interest on that) wouldn't be enough money to pay me to make fun of that tragedy. Other than to make fun of the people who for whatever reasons perhaps are addicted to the internet and have no outside hobbies and lives outside of hard-core hyper-partisan extreme politics.

Hyper-partisans on the hateful Left, always use a situation like this to either say we need gun control, and the Far-Left (Socialists and Communists) will argue right away for why they believe we need to outlaw private gun ownership and the 2nd Amendment all together those NRA fanatics are stopping that.

And hyper-partisans on the Right will try to make their case for why they believe the 2nd Amendment is the only amendment to the U.S. Constitution that is absolute. Hyper-partisans on the Right, people who believe the 2nd Amendment is absolute, apparently aren't that familiar with life. Because if you live a few years or more you know nothing in life is absolute. And they'l also use examples of how guns have saved innocent lives in the past. And somehow manage (perhaps intentionally) to forget about the latest victims from gun violence from a person or person who used their gun or guns to kill innocent people.

As far as Michael Flynn. The only reason you have to have to know that its not Amateur Night at the Apollo, (or Amateur Night at The Old Opry, for Southern Republicans) but the last two years of the Trump Organization has been Amateur Night. That Groundhog Day with a million screw up sin it that never seems to end. The Trump Campaign least year was rookie ball (for you baseball fans) bush league and that is what went into their administration.

President Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly, is a professional and at least seems to know what he's doing. The Trump National Security Council, except for Mike Flynn, is very strong. But the rest of this crew look like Congressional interns who just got out of high school and not even college. And apparently woke up one day from one of their Red Bull comas after not sleeping for weeks and find themselves in the real world with real jobs and not having any real idea of how to do them. How does a nominee for National Security Director, not get vetted? Ask the Trump White House! Ask Vice President Mike Pence who has a lot of responsibility as far as putting the Trump Administration and cabinet together.

Roy Moore, what else can be said about a man who not only doesn't believe the U.S. Constitution, let alone believe in it and doesn't believe Separation of Church and State and the Right to Privacy, even exist, but apparently ex-Judge Moore doesn't believe in the Bible either. Because he has a lot of crazy quotes about it that simply aren't true. He believes homosexuality should be illegal which of course it isn't., but he believes that it should be illegal because the Bible says so.

But if that is not bad enough Judge Moore comes from the fringe wing of Fundamentalist Evangelical Christianity that believes women are subservient to men and men can essentially have their way with women and girls. I don't want to make fun of Alabama (at least no more than usual) but this fringe fundamentalist belief is common in the Bible Belt and they seem to believe that there's nothing inappropriate with men getting off with girls. The legal age for consent in Alabama is 16 and not 18 where it tends to be in America. As much as the Christian-Right may claim to be against Islam and the Islamic Theocratic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and see Islam as a cult, the Christian Right are experts on religious, as well as political cults. They're the largest religious and political cult, at least in the West.

As far as Veterans Day. One of my favorite holidays, because without these great Americans I'm not able to spend a frozen Saturday in Bethesda, Maryland writing. Maybe the Confederates would have won the American Civil War and I would've had to apply for the Federal Government for permission to write anything at all. Because the Confederates would have probably have rewritten the Constitution or thrown it out like a piece of trash in order to keep their regime in power.

Veterans Day is that day to celebrate those great Americans who fight for our freedom and to give those Americans who aren't qualified or simply don't have the balls to serve, perhaps eat too much fast food to get through boot camp, the opportunity to celebrate the people who have given us the freedom that Americans cherish the most. The right to be Americans, the right to be individuals. The right to eat ourselves to death, or live long prosperous, intelligent, healthy, but interesting and exciting lives.

So that is my week for This Week. Perhaps you can view it as one tweet, but without about thousand characters or so in it. Imagine if Donald Trump had to write his comments and thoughts out in an article, instead of doing it in 10-20 tweets at around 8AM in the morning. Would his comments each day look more intelligent and thoughtful after seeing his thoughts written down on computer. Well, we'll probably never know, but perhaps something to think about.

The New Republic: Opinion- Clint Smith: Affirmative Action as Reparations

Source: The New Republic-
Source: This piece was originally posted at The New Democrat 

The main reason why I oppose affirmative action at least in the sense of reward any American or Americans based on race, ethnicity, or gender, is because I have this old and I guess what young Millennial's who love socialism and would find corny Martin Luther King notion of judging people by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. If you want a race, ethnicity, and gender blind society, then that has to start at the top and with government.

You can't have government preach about the dangers of racism and other bigotry when on the other hand its subsidizing racism and bigotry. Denying people access in America simply because of their race, ethnicity, or gender, is bigotry. Even if you're doing it to help people that you believe are disadvantage perhaps even to the point that they're not good enough to make it on their own.

Which is what affirmative action is basically saying to African and Latin-Americans. That we meaning Uncle Sam, believe that you (African and Latin-Americans) not good enough to compete with European and Asian-Americans, so as a result we're going to give you an extra head start and allow for you to go to college and get other jobs at the expense of European and Asian-Americans in the name of diversity. And at the same time tell European and Asian-Americans that their too many of them here right now. They're too successful and because of that they're not welcome to work here or go to school here.

What proponents of affirmative action don't seem to understand is that affirmative action is not bigoted towards just European-Americans, but everyone else. Asian, African, and Latin-Americans. Affirmative action tells European-Americans that there too many of them here and that since their families have benefited from racism against African-Americans in the past including slavery, government is now going to punish Europeans for the evils of their ancestors.

Asian-Americans lose access to college because Asians do very well in America when it comes education and everything else and as a result a lot of them are qualified to go to college and get good jobs. Except for one qualification which is that they happen to be from the wrong race. And as a result too many of them according to big government go to this school or that one and as a result that school is telling them that they can't take any more Asians at this point.

Affirmative action tells African and Latin-Americans that they're not good enough to compete with their European and Asian counterparts on their own. That they don't come from the right families and aren't raised properly, didn't go to the right schools, and as a result need help from big government to compete against everyone else in America, because they're not good enough on their own.

You want a race, ethnic, gender, and color-blind society in America and I'm only talking about how people are judged and not what we see out of our own eyes, but just how we treat each other and not reward or punish people because of their ancestry, then you only accomplish that by not having policies that reward or punish based on ancestry. No to affirmative action and yes to strong civil rights laws and enforcement.

Punish people economically to the point that it would hurt employers and schools and other organizations when they deny or punish people simply because of their ancestry and be a strong incentive not to reward or punish people base on ethnicity.

And yes to a modern infrastructure and economic development system so every community in America regardless of race and ethnicity can succeed in America. As well as an education system where every American can go to the best school for them and have a real shot at succeeding in America even if they come from low-income parents and not be forced to go to school simply because of where they live.

What makes America exceptional is not our vast economic resources or our military firepower, even those things are great benefits to our country and we don't ever have to worry about another country attacking us and have to take foreign aide from other countries just to survive economically. But what makes us exceptional is our diversity at all levels and all kinds and our individualism. That we're this vast and diverse superpower and giant of a country that represents the whole world in the sense that everyone lives here.

No majority ethnicity and by the 2050 no majority race as well. And we're this country where regardless of your ancestry and how you start out in life you can literally make it in America. You don't see Americans escaping or even trying to escape America to live in another country where they believe they can get a better opportunity at life. We're all equal as Americans and are no better or worst than anyone else simply because of our ancestry.

Which means we can all succeed if just given the opportunity. Getting a good opportunity meaning education early in life and then taking advantage of that. Not because they needed big government to reward them simply because big government believes they have the right complexion or eye shape, hair, of whatever physical features that we inherit from our parents. African and Latin-Americans, don't need big government's help and reward them simply because of their race and ethnicity to succeed in America.

African and Latin-Americans, can accomplish these things on their own if they simply are able to go to good schools growing up and have parents who do everything they can to raise them properly so they can succeed. Because African and Latin-Americans, are just as good as everyone else in America and don't need special treatment and protection from big government.

The New Yorker: William Brennan- The Night Bernie Sanders Was President

Source: The New Yorker-
Source: This piece was originally posted at The Daily Review

How about we all go to Colorado and load up on marijuana. Cigarets, cookies, whatever it might be and just get as high as New York skyscrapers and Elvis fans thinking they just saw The King. Because that might be the only way an honest, sane, intelligent person, can imagine a Democratic Socialist from New York City, who has represented the Socialist Republic of Vermont in Congress for now almost 27 years, as President of the United States. The George McGovern of the post-World War II generations.

Looking back at it now I believe the only reasons why Bernie Sanders who isn't even a registered Democrat, but self-described Democratic Socialist (which is a little different) became the number one alternative to Hillary Clinton, who really was the most qualified presidential candidate at least since George H.W. Bush, has to do with how screwed up the Democratic Party is, as well as the broader American political system. Americans are fed up with the establishment and and fed up with establishment political candidates, to the point that they will look at any candidate, especially who is an official Democrat or Republican who doesn't come from the establishment.

Bernie Sanders whatever you think of him doesn't come from the establishment, at least in a political party sense. I would argue that at least in the sense that anyone who has worked in Washington and has served in Congress for now 27 years when January comes in a couple of months, is as establishments as oranges are, well orange, or politicians lie. But Bernie's politics are certainly not establishment. I mean, a Democratic Socialist who promises all of these so-called free services from government, because he doesn't trust the private sector to provide them and doesn't even believe in capitalism, is as anti-Washington as Libertarians are anti-socialism.

And again Bernie Sanders runs for President at a time when American hate politicians and hate how their government is being run and how their hard-earned tax dollars are being spent. Also at a time when you have roughly hundred-million Millennial's who don't like capitalism, or at least that is what they say, even though they buy and love all the products and services that come from capitalism. And not just with new technology and Hollywood, but fashion and everyone else that our capitalist system produces.

But Millennial's seem to believe that they're being screwed by capitalism. They have college degrees and yet they can't seem to find jobs that moves them out of their parents basements. They're drowning in college debt. And here you have at the time a 74 year old Jewish Democratic Socialist who was originally from New York City (perhaps the capital of American Socialism) come in and say, "capitalism and the rich, are screwing Americans. And we need to destroy the capitalist and two-party establishment and do something else."

The reason why someone like Bernie Sanders (the George McGovern of today) who would be as mainstream in Sweden or Britain as soccer is popular, but in American politically stands out as badly as pornographers at a Southern Baptist Convention and seems to have landed in America from the Planet Utopia and playing Santa Clause (I guess a Jewish Santa Clause) with all of these gifts from Uncle Sam saying that all of these services are free, with a fat bill in the mail later on that most of us call taxes, but the reason why a Bernie Sanders can make a strong run for the presidential nomination for the largest and oldest political party at least in America, is because he came down from Planet Utopia and saw a perfect political storm.

The anti-establishment of anti-establishment political candidates running at a time when the establishment in America is as unpopular as New York Yankees fans at an Irish pub in Boston. With millions of Americans essentially jumping on the Bernie bandwagon and saying they hate the establishment too and they also love socialism (even though most of them don't know what it is) and are going to work hard for Bernie Sanders for President. And cheering and loving everything that Bernie says, because he's always promising free stuff and gifts from Uncle Sam. Apparently Socialists don't believe taxes are fees and bills that taxpayers pay for government services.

I'm not sure I can imagine a Bernie Sanders for President in America. I think it would have been interesting to see Democrats give him the nomination just to see how the Donald Trump Campaign would have played him, which is exactly what they would have done. Part of Donald Trump's rigged system theme was all about Bernie and how he believed the Democratic Party was treating Bernie. They wanted to run against Bernie regardless of what the polls were saying, because of what Bernie represents ideologically.

They could've run commercials essentially saying that America can't afford Bernie. Under a Bernie Sanders presidency, America wouldn't be able to defend themselves, because Bernie would gut the defense system.

You would see commercials like, "North Korea wants Bernie Sanders as President, so they can attack us when our defense is down."

Another commercial like, "under President Bernie Sanders, Americans would now have to work three jobs instead of 1 or even 2. One job to pay the taxes and two jobs to try to support themselves."

And these ads would work because you have millions of Americans who don't follow politics very closely and have a tendency to believe what people tell them without even considering the source of the information and whatever motives the person might have for saying what they're saying. Which is how you get the political system that we have in America where politicians are essentially in office to stay in office and get elected to higher office. Because if they even bother to try to govern they could risk losing political support.

I can't imagine a Bernie Sanders as President simply because I'm an American and I'm smart enough to know that Americans might say they like free government services, but only until they find out that those services aren't free and that their real taxes that come from those services. And even if a Bernie Sanders gets to the White House, that is probably as far as he would get. Because he would have a Congress even if Democrats control the House or Senate or even both chamber's, telling President Sanders no. Because they believe government is trying to do too much here, but also because they don't want to raise the taxes on people that they need in order to get reelected. But in a country that invented Hollywood Americans can imagine anything. Including a Socialist as President.

The New Republic: Opinion- Jeet Heer: Sibling Rivalry: Democratic Socialists & Liberals

Source: The New Republic- Bernie Sanders & Nancy Pelosi, political tug of war-
Source: This piece was originally posted at The New Democrat 

What's going on in the Democratic Party today reminds me of what was going on post-JFK assassination in the 1960s and into the 1970s. Even though I wasn't born until 1975, of course I don't remember seeing this, but I read pretty well and watch a lot of documentaries. With John F. Kennedy in the White House the Democratic Left was essentially made up of Center-Left Progressives and Liberals. Democratic Socialists back then were still in the closet politically. Communists, were either in hiding or looking to escape both physically and politically to Cuba or Russia.

Back in the early 1960s you had the FDR/LBJ Progressive Democratic Coalition. And the JFK Liberal Democrats who believed in freedom and even capitalism, but that it should benefit everyone and not just people born to wealth and European-Americans. JFK Democrats would be what are called New Democrats today. The Center-Left Progressives and Liberals, tended too agree on foreign policy and national security issues, both were strong internationalists, anti-Communists, strong defense, effective law enforcement, fiscal responsibility, free trade, civil rights, equal rights, but tended to differ on the role of the Federal Government and what it should do for the people and how much it should tax.

It was Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman, (Progressive Democrats)  that made America the economic and military power that it is today. Not all by themselves obviously, but moved us into the direction during World War II and after that. Liberal Democrat John F. Kennedy was an internationalist hawk on foreign policy and national security and probably hated communism as much as Ronald Reagan. But he also believed in civil rights and pushed for those things, as well as civil liberties, freedom of choice, right to privacy, didn't believe Americans should be highly taxed.

The assassination of President John F. Kennedy and President Lyndon Johnson pretty much all by himself, along with the JFK assassination, pretty much destroyed the old Democratic Party. The civil rights laws and the Great Society, moved the right-wing Dixiecrats (who would be called Nationalists today) out of the Democratic Party and into the Republican Party. Thanks to the Baby Boom coming of age in the the 1960s and the Vietnam War, Socialists in America (both Democratic and Communist) came out of the closet. Perhaps moving back from Cuba and Russia and into the Democratic Party.

Democrats started losing the South but started dominating the West Coast and Northeast with all of these new Socialists into the party. Who didn't think communism was a bad thing, who didn't like capitalism, who thought America was the real Evil Empire and I could go on, but I'll spare you. The New-Left in the Democratic Party came of age post-JFK assassination and into the LBJ Administration.

What we're seeing now in the Democratic Party is the Democratic Socialist (not Communist) wing of the New-Left, that is led by Senator Bernie Sanders (Socialist Republic of Vermont) and the Nancy Pelosi Progressive Democratic wing of the Democratic Party led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Who comes from the New-Left socialist wing from the 1960s in San Francisco, but has moderated her radical views from the time before she was Democratic Leader, because she now represents and much broader party and caucus. My JFK Liberal Democratic wing is not as big or at least as vocal. Perhaps Senator Cory Booker and former Governor Martin O'Malley, now represent the Liberal Democrats in the party.

If the Democratic Party wants to win back the House and have even a shot at winning back the Senate in 2018, both the Center-Left Liberals and Progressives and Far-Left Socialists, are going to have to come together and work together, stop attacking each other because they believe one side is too centrist or radical. Come together on a agenda that brings new Democrats into the party and votes Democratic. And let the presidential primary season decide how far left the Democratic Party goes into the future, or do we remain a Center-Left party that we've been at least since the 1990s. Otherwise the party will break up and you won't see a large Democratic Party that can compete against the GOP in the future.

Constitution Daily: NCC Staff- Looking Back: George Carlin & The U.S. Supreme Court

Source: Constitution Daily-
Source: This piece was originally posted at The Daily Review

The blog writes a lot about political correctness and fascism, because we write a lot about comedy and write comedy ourselves and without free speech which is what political correctness and fascism tries to restrict (obviously, duh, you don't say!) there would't be any comedy and even political satire. Which is why I'm always amused if not confused when so-called left-wing comedians and other entertainers make calls for political correctness because they think some material is offensive.

Because without free speech there wouldn't be any comedy. I mean, if political correctness ran this country instead of the First Amendment, comedians wouldn't be able to crack jokes about anybody. Especially the people who deserve to be made fun of. Like our politicians, just to use as an example. Entertainers attacking free speech is very ironic. Because speech is what fuels comedy, as well as self-awareness and what's going on around you in life. Even comedians have stood up for political correctness against free speech, like Michael Moore and others. Even John Oliver, Stephanie Miller, John Fugelsang, would be other examples.

A comedian attacking free speech, is like a race car driver saying oil and gas are bad for the environment and therefor should be outlawed. Oil and gas literally fuel that race car driver's career. Without it, he might be flipping burgers or selling lemonade. Or a pro football player saying football is too violent and therefor tackling should be outlawed. Who would go watch professional flag football? As the great comedian Mel Brooks has said political correctness is destroying comedy because comedians are worried about offending oversensitive tight asses, who think they're the only perfect human beings on the face of the Earth who don't deserve to be made fun of. Brooks has said political correctness is destroying comedy. The second part is my line.

George Carlin is not the first victim of political correctness when it comes to comedy. You could argue at least that Lenny Bruce back in the 1950s and 60s has that uthonorable title. But George and Lenny, are from the same generation. Lenny would literally go on stage using cuss words as part of his act and I'm not talking about hell or damn, but he would talk about sex and talk about how people would have sex with each other and put it bluntly. And then would literally be arrested on stage for using foul language. George has  a similar but different story.

George would go on stage and literally use words like shit, fuck, mother fucker, mother fucking fucking, and others and these were part of the so-called seven dirty words that comedians weren't supposed to use in Phyllis Schlafly's 1950s America, where you weren't even allowed to say God, Jesus, and hell, at least not on TV.

Liberal democracy which has a practically guaranteed right for free speech in America under are First Amendment. The only exceptions having to do with falsely libeling, inciting violence, or harassment, like leaving obscene message on someone's voice mail, to use as an example. This is not the place for oversensitive tight asses who look at the mirror and only see perfection. Or have a glass jaw for an ego and can't take the smallest bit of criticism without breaking out in tears and flooding their homes from all of their perspiration. I don't know, maybe Canada is a country for people like that.

If you don't like offensive material, then don't watch it or listen to it! Only watch PBS and C-SPAN if you can't handle criticism about yourself and groups you believe have constitutional protection not to be criticized that no one else has. With liberal democracy comes a lot of individual freedom, but with that comes responsibility and the fact that you're not the only one who lives here and you have the same freedom and responsibility that everyone else has. And might from time to time hear and see things that you disapprove of. But so will everyone else.
