People are loving Jim Carrey’s graphic painting of Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey being aborted

Twitchy - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 20:19

We know how anxious we all not to see Jim Carry in “Sonic the Hedgehog,” but to tide us over until then, we can feature another of Carrey’s paintings, this one graphically showing Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey having her brain sucked out during an abortion.

I think If you’re going to terminate a pregnancy, it should be done sometime before the fetus becomes Governor of Alabama.

— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) May 18, 2019

Whenever anyone says they’re not “pro-abortion” but “pro-choice,” show them this. It’s amazing the abortion fantasies people have, ranging from the “retarded” Donald Trump Jr. to simply the unborn children of poor single moms.

Thank you Jim Carrey for showing us what abortion is.

So a fetus is an actual person?

Also: I love how euphemistically he describes it. Pretty telling.

— Sam Ellenburg (@ellenburg_sam) May 18, 2019

This is sadistic and evil. Wow. He has officially gone insane. Sad to see…

— JDeck (@JJD1628) May 18, 2019

Termination of an unborn child should NOT be done. This is a sad, sad world.

— kami amore (@kamore1987) May 18, 2019

Predictable response from the mindbogglingly sleazy, ultra-shallow, morally-bankrupt individual. This is the pro-abortion, pro-death poster child, if ever there was one.

— Clare (@ARealSJW) May 18, 2019

Leftists admits a fetus could be a woman, destined to be Governor.

— Slovydal (@Slovydal) May 18, 2019

Regardless of his politics, no one deserves to be mocked and maligned from the public discourse than Jim Carrey. He and his ex-gf Jenny McCarthy did more to mainstream the murderous pseudoscience of anti-vaxxing than anyone else, and somehow he's never paid public penance for it.

— Tiana Lowe (@TianaTheFirst) May 18, 2019

So if you’re a pro-life woman (or just disagree with progressives), this is what Jim Carrey and a lot of others wish had happened to you. But it comes from a place of love.

Jay Rosen reminds us what it was like in 2016 when NPR was critical of Hillary Clinton that one time

Twitchy - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 19:51

As Twitchy reported, New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen announced in a tweet that he was giving up NPR after 25 years as a loyal listener. The triggering event? Someone said on air, “There are a lot of people in the United States who don’t see Donald Trump is a habitual liar and who are big fans of his.” Judging by the popularity of his rallies, we’d say that’s true, a lot of people are big fans of Trump.

That might have been the last straw from Rosen, but he had evidence of NPR’s decay; just look at how Mara Liansson summed up the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016:

Just to remind you what it was like in 2016. Visible steps the press has taken to prevent something different but just as bad from happening in 2020: none that I can see.

— Jay Rosen (@jayrosen_nyu) May 18, 2019

Yeah, and…?

curious that you see journalists' jobs as preventing political outcomes you don't like.

— Lowell George Washington (@deanriehm) May 18, 2019

It's called journalism, Jay.

— Richard DeCamp (@richdecamp) May 18, 2019

You teach journalism. There's the problem right there.

— LukeHandCool (@starrfin) May 18, 2019

You should change your bio. You don't teach journalism, you teach activism.

— Johnny Flyover (@john1gun) May 18, 2019

Activism journalism is boring, stupid, elitist, and a perfect way to destroy jobs and publications. Nobody wants your Pravda.

— Jesse smith (@jessefromwi) May 18, 2019

Why is it the job of the press to help shape election outcomes? If you just present facts to the American people objectively and allow them to decide you wouldn't be so stressed about the narrative you are putting out. It's quite arrogant to even think this is part of your job.

— Spying did occur. (@Estrickland356) May 18, 2019

So you have gone from reporting to full blown campaigning for the DNC. So much for the free press

— Zapp “Beto” Branigan (@JohnMulkey) May 18, 2019

Let me try to understand you. Are you suggesting that you can't listen because they made an objective statement? Perhaps a refund from your school of journalism is in order…

— Tra (@tk97275) May 18, 2019

Here we have a journalism professor advocating an activist Press to work for a political end result rather than one that reports the truth.

How low journalism has sunk.

— CKent (@CKentDP) May 18, 2019

Hillary Clinton created her own problems. Comey did answer this before the election when he said the new emails did not change anything. The media lifted her up as the presumptive president while giving Trump mostly negative coverage. The media has a duty to be neutral.

— Marc Velletri (@MarcVelletri) May 18, 2019

NPR only reports on the liberal side of the aisle. You're laughable.

— Cindy (@asheborn57) May 18, 2019

Hey! I'm mostly right-leaning and I don't like Mara Liasson's views either. What does this mean? Can we both be justified in thinking she is too biased, or is it something else?

— carl wagoner (@revwagcarl) May 18, 2019

Here’s Mo with the takedown:

A guy who teaches journalism thinks the press's job is to prevent Trump from getting elected, by ignoring news stories that help him. This is exactly how we got Trump.

— Mo Mo (@molratty) May 18, 2019

For almost thirty years, RW media have been complaining, legitimately, about media bias, while the press pretended as if they were playing it straight. Trump was the first R presidential candidate to directly confront this and it's a huge part of his support.

— Mo Mo (@molratty) May 18, 2019

Y'all could be better. You could do your jobs and do your best to remove bias. You could be sane. You don't have to take the bait. Instead, you act like it's your job to get someone elected.

— Mo Mo (@molratty) May 18, 2019

Here's a truth: almost no journalist has sufficient knowledge or insight on policy, political theory, or anything about how the world works to offer any value beyond "this is what happened." Stop pretending you do.

— Mo Mo (@molratty) May 18, 2019

Many of them can’t even tell correctly what happened, either. I’ve noticed this after reading abortion-related legislation for 6 states & seeing the media report on text that’s not even in any of the bills.

— Daniel Gump ☕ (@DSiPaint) May 18, 2019

If they spent less time trying to change the world and more time doing what they're supposed to do, we wouldn't have this problem

— Mo Mo (@molratty) May 18, 2019

Reporters should only be reporting.

Leave the analysis to the professionals.

— Ben Rondeau (@bhrondeau) May 18, 2019

It became a political "calling" right after Watergate and has slowly regressed into what we see today.

— Fraunkenstine (@ristine_kevin) May 18, 2019

Yep … to be honest, Watergate is exactly what every journalism student aspires to do: take down a Republican president or prevent one from being elected. That’s the gold ring.

Terrifying that you *teach* journalism

— 1andone (@31taiuqsab) May 18, 2019

He and the fact-checker who smeared a former Marine as a neo-Nazi and the feminist who claims the Republican party is “a terrorist organization” will all be teaching journalism at NYU. Great school.

Nancy Pelosi claims Dems have never said there is not a crisis at the border (ROLL TAPE!)

Twitchy - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 17:36

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has addressed a question about Trump saying America has a border crisis this way:

Nancy Pelosi Claims Democrats Have Always Acknowledged The Border Crisis

— The Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) May 17, 2019

Here’s what Pelosi said this week:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that Democrats have “never not” called the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border a crisis, despite them repeatedly denying there was a crisis earlier this year.

“Well, let me just say this. We have never not said that there was a crisis — there is a humanitarian crisis at the border, and some of it provoked by the actions taken by the administration,” Pelosi, a California Democratic representative, said Thursday during her weekly press conference.

It depends on what your definition of “never” is:

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi stated that Democrats NEVER SAID THERE WASN'T A CRISIS at the border…

Sooo… here's a mashup of Democrats (including her) saying there wasn't a crisis at the border 4 months ago.

— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) May 17, 2019

According to Nancy Pelosi, none of what you just witnessed in that mashup ever happened.

World’s Most Influential Imam: Islam Will Rule Europe and the West by “Quiet Conquering”

Geller Report - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 13:30

And not so quietly.

Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi is the religious leader of the Muslim Brotherhood whose US proxies include terror-tied CAIR, MSA, ISNA and hundreds of other American Muslim groups. He advocates jihad-martyrdom suicide bombings, a champion of a “reformist interpretation of Islam and its relationship to democracy, pluralism and human rights.”

The modern-day Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, in writing about “signs of the victory of Islam,” referred to a hadith:

The Prophet Muhammad was asked: “What city will be conquered first, Constantinople or Romiyya [Rome]?” He answered: “The city of Hirqil [ruled by the Byzantine emperor Heraclius] will be conquered first”—that is, Constantinople—Romiyya is the city called today ‘Rome,’ the capital of Italy. The city of Hirqil [that is, Constantinople] was conquered by the young 23-year-old Ottoman Muhammad bin Morad, known in history as Muhammad the Conqueror, in 1453. The other city, Romiyya, remains, and we hope and believe [that it too will be conquered]. This means that Islam will return to Europe as a conqueror and victor, after being expelled from it twice—once from the South, from Andalusia, and a second time from the East, when it knocked several times on the door of Athens.”

Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi

Imam: Islam Will Rule Europe and the West by “Quiet Conquering”

Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most influential Muslim cleric in the world today says, “Islam will return to rule over Europe and the West. Does the conquest need to be accomplished by the sword? No, not necessarily. There is quiet conquering or ‘Da’wa’ (proselytizing for Islam).”

PA Daily: Sex on d=Demand – A Husband’s “Right”, “A Wife’s “Obligation

Geller Report - Sat, 05/18/2019 - 13:00

American feminist leadership supports this vicious, misogynistic system and the left stands with with “Palestinian Authority.”

PA daily: Sex on demand – a husband’s “right”; a wife’s “obligation”

Sex on demand “at any time” is a husband’s right – this is what Palestinians were taught in the official PA daily’s religious ruling section yesterday. Moreover, a husband’s “right” to “enjoy his wife” sexually “at all times” supersedes the woman’s right to accept upon herself a religious fast:

“A woman must ask permission from her husband to fast, because the husband has the right to enjoy his wife [sexually] at any time, and it is obligatory [for his wife] to fulfill his right immediately.”
[Dar Al-Ifta, an official PA institution issuing Fatwas (religious rulings),
Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 15, 2019]

In Islam fasting includes abstaining from sexual relations. Accordingly, the wife’s fasting would prevent her from fulfilling her obligation to satisfy her husband’s “right” for sex “immediately,” should he demand it.

The following is the question-and-answer as it appeared in the official PA daily in the special Fatwa (religious rulings) section for the month of Ramadan:

Question: ‘Does a woman have to ask her husband for permission to fast six days in the month of Shawwal (the month after Ramadan when Muslims traditionally fast for six days; the fast is optional. Ed.)?’

Answer: ‘The rule is that a woman must ask permission from her husband to observe an optional fast. The six-day fast in the month of Shawwal is a sunnah [a traditional Muslim custom], and a woman must ask permission from her husband to fast, because the husband has the right to enjoy his wife [sexually] at any time, and it is obligatory [for his wife] to fulfill his right immediately (in Islam fasting includes abstaining from sexual relations, and therefore her fasting would prevent his “right” -Ed.)…
Regarding the obligatory and commanded fast [Ramadan] that it is an obligation to observe immediately [at the appointed time], a woman does not need to ask permission for it. A husband merits reward [from Allah] if he allows his wife to observe an optional fast.'”
[Dar Al-Ifta, an official PA institution issuing Fatwas (religious rulings),
Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 15, 2019]
The PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein, gave a similar ruling a few years ago during Ramadan, explaining that a woman must agree to sex when her husband wants it even if he is violating Islamic law by not fasting:

Palestinian Authority Mufti Muhammad Hussein answers questions about Ramadan on PA TV:

PA TV host reads out question: “A man doesn’t fast and doesn’t pray, but according to Shari’ah law – if he wants to have sex after the prayer [time] and [his wife] refuses, perhaps for the reason: ‘You don’t pray and don’t fast.'”
Mufti: “That is not a reason…”
Host: “Does she have the right [to refuse] according to Shari’ah?”
Mufti: “No. It’s his right [to have sex]. Nonetheless, we say to him: You must obey Allah Almighty. Just as you want to satisfy your needs, which are in fact animalistic and impulsive, you must also observe Allah’s duties and commandments, which are more important. Nonetheless, it is his right. This woman may not and has no rights to deny him this right, especially during the permissible time, which is nighttime.”
[Official PA TV, Aug. 12, 2012]
