So long, democracy. Larry Wilmore's Comedy Central show got cancelled. That was the dramatic message from the far-left culture magazine Salon, with a headline ripe for ridicule: “Losing ‘The Nightly Show’ matters: Larry Wilmore’s satire was crucial for our democracy,” especially "in the middle of an election cycle where many segments of our society feel totally disenfranchised, if not outright persecuted." Lest you think the headline was clickbait, the piece by Sophia A. McClennen, a professor at Penn State, face-planted right out of the starting gate with the same magnificent exaggeration: "This week saw the end of one of the most significant satire news shows in our nation’s history. "

Plenty of Republicans have been lamenting their party’s nomination of “the one guy who cannot beat the historically unpopular Hillary Clinton,” but Gary Legum thinks they’re assuming facts not in evidence. In a Friday article, Legum indicated that Hillary would have been a prohibitive favorite against anyone the GOP might have chosen. He opined that the Republicans’ so-called deep bench was a mirage and argued, "For the GOP to nominate someone capable of beating Hillary Clinton in 2016, it would have had to have been a completely different GOP since at least 1992. And if that GOP existed, Clinton would not be a weak and unpopular figure, because she would not have spent 25 years being hit with every ridiculous charge under the sun."

Radical feminism in its most odious expressions has become one comprehensive emulation of Animal Farm looming over women's lives from cradle to grave. The original George Orwell masterpiece popularized the saying, "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others." Radical feminists tell us they believe that feminism is all about choice — but some choices are clearly seen as superior to others.

Not that she cares, because she has far better things to do, but U.S. Olympic beach volleyballer Kerri Walsh Jennings is getting pushback from radical feminists for describing her choices in life thusly: "I feel like I was born to have babies and play volleyball."

In the midst of Convention Insanity II, other things did exist in the liberal universe. That universe has tons of interesting characters in it -- from cop killers to crass comedians.

The debate rages on as to whether Donald Trump has remodeled or vandalized the Republican party. In any event, left-wing pundits spent the week gaping at, and writing about, what they viewed as the grotesque spectacle of the RNC. For example, Daily Kos’s Hunter opined that the convention was "was barely one step up from an internet-peddled snuff film,” and Salon’s Heather Digby Parton declared that “all that’s left of the ‘three-legged stool’ of conservatism is the seat — racism, nativism and xenophobia.”

It’s convention time. If you live in normal America, let me repeat, from this outpost of marginal humanity (in my case, Maryland), IT’S CONVENTION TIME!

In the memorable words of Kevin Antoine Dodson, “hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your husband.” If you are in the media, any sort of media, you just filed a story in the space of time it took to read those couple dozen words. And your editor wants to know what took you so long. If you are working for left-wing, insano organizations like Salon, you just bashed about 2 million conservatives in that time.

Liberals aren’t exactly pro-law and order, except for the TV show, long one of the most left-wing on TV. Anything else and they are ready to storm the barricades and sing like a bad version of “Do You Hear the People Sing” from Les Miserables. From Occupy Wall Street to Ferguson to Black Friday to Hands Up, Don’t Shoot to Freddie Grey to Black Lives Matter, liberals love to protest, hate cops, spit at cops, attack cops and riot. For the left, it’s an altogether fun time.Tell the Truth 2016

Although he is frequently attacked by the mainstream media, Rush Limbaugh’s conservative radio show continues to flourish and maintain an audience of loyal followers. The radio show host’s $79 million income earned him the number 10 ranking on Forbes’ recently released list of top celebrity earnings of 2016.

Sex discrimination, anti-semitism, transgender cyborgs, money for nothing and a dress you wouldn’t want to touch with a 10-foot-long pair of scissors. That’s the best of, or worst of, a week in the left-wing press. It’s pressing or just depressing.

“All hope abandon, ye who enter here.” That was Dante’s warning about entering hell. I’ll be your ferryman to that infernal place known as the Left. This week seems especially disturbing.

Liberals put the freak into getting freaky. The more bizarrely sexual something is, the more liberals embrace it. This week I was reminded of how perverted and perverse left-wing websites can be. To give you a hint, the article on idiots who use electroshock therapy during sex didn’t even make the cut.

Penn State prof Sophia McClennen, a Bernie Sanders backer, really dislikes Hillary Clinton. “We are literally watching the Clinton campaign drain any claim to nuance, critical thinking, reasoned logic, and attention to facts from the Democratic party,” alleged McClennen in a recent screed for Salon. “The fact that Clinton is now the favorite of many on the right...should be evidence enough of a real merging of the right and the ‘left.’”

In other words, McClennen suggested, Hillary’s almost an honorary Republican, given that her campaign, much like the GOP’s campaigns starting with the 2002 midterms, has in many ways been “dominated by binary thinking, irrationality, and panic…The number one reason that Bernie Sanders supporters are told they should vote for Hillary is to stop Trump…If the primary argument to vote for Hillary is out of fear—then the Democrats have now joined with the GOP in promoting a politics of hysteria.”

Osama bin Laden routinely referred to his main Western enemies as “crusaders.” Conservative-bashing author Neal Gabler, the longtime Fox News Watch panelist, adapted OBL’s analogy in a Thursday Salon piece that originally ran at BillMoyers.com. Gabler also griped that if most Americans don’t understand just how fanatical Republicans are, blame the media.

“For three decades,” Gabler commented, “the MSM have been collaborators with the GOP, pretending” that it’s “a normal party,” when it’s really “closer to a religious cult…It operates on dogma, sees compromise as a moral failing, [and] views enemies as pagans who must be vanquished…That isn’t politics; it’s a modern version of the medieval Crusades, and as the ancient Crusades did to Europe, it has inflicted untold damage on our country.”
