HATE: Left moves on from hunting people on social media to movies about killing them.

If you are someone like Jerry Scanlan, the Sussex County GOP Chairman, you already know what the movie “The Hunt” is all about.  After Sussex County legislators demanded that the state Attorney General come to Sussex County to explain to county taxpayers why their Sheriff was being asked to comply with the Murphy administration’s illegal Sanctuary scheme, the state Democrat Party assigned a local Democrat the task of stalking Scanlan’s social media, to find something to kill his political career.

As we know from the testimony of several Democrat insiders, the Murphy administration was desperate to change the topic from its illegal Sanctuary scheme to something else.  So Scanlan was stalked by Democrats who soon found that he had been sloppy in monitoring the content of a handful of MAGA re-tweets.  After hunting for something to be offended about, the stalkers found it, promptly exclaimed that they had been “offended” and then demanded that Scanlan be fired for the offense of “Free Speech”.

The Democrats appear to forget that here – in America – in this country, we have something called the Bill of Rights.  The same Bill of Rights that allows Democrats to do some of their favorite things… like burn the American flag, or wipe their feet on it, or disrespect Disabled American Veterans (something the Left has been up to since the end of the Vietnam War), or paint a portrait of the Virgin Mother using feces, or place a Christian cross in a vat of urine… The same Bill of Rights allows someone to re-tweet something that is disrespectful of Islam or of Left wing politicians or of Caucasian politicians who claim to be “of color”. 

And even though Scanlan said that the controversial re-tweets were not intentional, that they were mistakenly re-tweeted as part of long Twitter “trains”, and that he apologized for doing it… the stalkers are on the hunt and they want their trophy.  Rather like the new movie the Left is promoting…

Comcast’s board of directors is stone silent amid widespread controversy over the media conglomerate’s “The Hunt” movie that has ruffled feathers for reportedly depicting humans hunting people with different political views for sport as the country mourns a pair of mass shootings.

NBC’s Universal Pictures falls under the Comcast cooperate umbrella, along with liberal news network MSNBC.

A Deadline report confirming the screenplay had been picked for production described the movie as “politically charged,” and The Hollywood Reporter sets up the battle as between “elite liberals” hunting “MAGA types.”

The hypocrisy of some Democrats has jumped the bounds of decency. 

The Murphy administration places gag orders against whistleblowers in a rape case, as it sends stalkers to hunt for something to be “offended” about, so it can have someone fired. 

Murphy’s media allies published the “offensive” material – that nobody would have even known existed if not for the media publishing it – and then claim that so many people have been “offended” that someone must be fired. 

Of course, the media was never “offended” when someone burned the American flag, or wiped their feet on it, or trashed Disabled American Veterans, or placed a Christian cross in a vat of urine.  They never asked that someone be fired for offending millions of Americans.  The media called those offenders “heroes”, even called some of their offensive material “art” and said it should be supported with tax dollars.

The Democrats have long supported flag burning.  Have long voted to spend taxpayer money to support “transgressive” art – so long as it transgressed against America and traditional values.  Now, when such transgression applies to Islam or far-left politicians… they call it “hate”.

Just hypocrites and corrupt politicians on the make.

Analysis: Murphy uses “tweets” to distract from illegal Sanctuary scheme.

By Rubashov

Leslie Huhn is a former Democrat county chairperson and candidate for the state Legislature.  She got her start in politics as an activist protesting Republican Governor Chris Christie’s cuts to school funding in his first budget.   It is a measure of Huhn’s hypocrisy that she did nothing to protest the more drastic cuts imposed by Democrat Governor Phil Murphy on rural and suburban school districts.

But then, Leslie Huhn is a fan of Phil Murphy…

Similar women are heavy in the ranks of the Left – which has come to dominate the formerly centrist Democratic Party.  Unlucky in human relationships, frustrated in their attempts to embrace another soul, they embrace the world.  But they are not very clever, and need the “world” explained to them.  Enter Phil Murphy.  Billionaire Guru.

We have had the opportunity to observe the men who are drawn to the Left, which increasingly has come to include the Democratic Party.  There are a fair number of “opportunists” – there because they smell possibility.  Some are predators even, in the way of an Al Alvarez.  This emotional cauldron of boiling, disillusioned sexuality is evidenced in the irrationality the movement exhibits.  The emotional madness.  Marriage counselors and divorce attorneys will know what we mean. 

Of course, the media depends on this cesspit of emotion when it fashions its click bait.  After all, the commercial media must pull eyes to a page in order to perform its real mission (the one it gets paid for) and that is the advertising that accompanies the click bait.  Unless you are NPR, the purpose of newspapers and other media is to sell advertising – used cars, insurance schemes, miracle drugs, suppositories – the “content” is only the bait.  One of the underlaying benefits of the bait is that the consumer gets the pleasure of a better self-image, because they believe they are “informed”.  

That is how the scam works.  It is why a “re-tweet” of someone else’s naughty word or tasteless image is covered more extensively than an anti-Semitic vote cast in the United States Congress.  It is bullshit over substance.

A few days after Leslie Huhn began “following” Sussex County GOP Chairman Jerry Scanlan’s Twitter account, the Democrats began efforts to change the narrative in Sussex County from Governor Murphy’s illegal Sanctuary scheme, which was clearly not going well for them, to Jerry Scanlan’s re-tweets.

The Democrats put considerable resources into the effort.  From “spin doctors” associated with the Murphy administration, to the state Democratic Party, the Lt. Governor, and Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill – a great many Democrats and/or people of the Left worked on aspects of this. 

Scanlan’s employment was contacted, in an attempt to have him fired.  Yes, the modern equivalent of capital punishment, for we all need to eat – and who but someone claiming to be “compassionate” and “liberal” would seek to deny a fellow human being the ability to feed his family, to provide a roof over their head?  The self-righteous have no conscience.  No mercy.

They chose their timing carefully, when Scanlan was out-of-state, vacationing with his family.  As their mouth pieces, they selected one from within the Democratic Party, with the other a self-identified “anarchist”.

They focused on a single tweet that had been used successfully in Illinois.  This was a movie poster trope that featured four very far-Left – and by degrees anti-Semitic – members of Congress.  Three are members of the anti-Semitic BDS Movement, decried by Democrat Congressman Josh Gottheimer, who represents Sussex County.  The co-chair of the Bipartisan Task Force on Combatting Anti-Semitism said that the BDS movement “demonizes Israel and Jews.” It is said that the next genocide will be caused by people in pussy hats – not jackboots and brownshirts.   

The tweet referred to the four members of Congress as “The Jihad Squad” and was clearly a satirical treatment of their public statements and the votes they have cast in Congress.  When this was noted, the Left changed course and focused on language that was ungentlemanly towards women.  There is a wonderful Victorian aspect to this, and the Left clearly hit its target, because traditional conservatives are not modernists and do not like women referred to as “whores” – even women with whom they disagree. 

The county GOP’s women were not going to stand for such language, so they stepped in and took Chairman Scanlan’s tweeter away.  But instead of claiming victory, the Democrats – in the person of Sussex County Democratic Chair Katie Rotondi – promptly attacked the Republican women.  Of course she would, because this was never about “tweets” it is about keeping the focus away from Governor Murphy’s illegal Sanctuary scheme.

Meanwhile, Democrat Rotondi managed an own-goal when it turned out that she had “tweeted” an offensive comment about a disabled American veteran.  And the Left did one better, rolling out the state chapter of CAIR (the Council on Islamic-American Relations) to bash Scanlan, and apparently forgetting that one of America’s closest Islamic allies in the middle east had designated CAIR a “terrorist organization.”  Having lost 715 New Jersey residents on September 11, 2001, most reasonable people believe terrorism to be more important than tweets.

The Sussex County GOP is conducting its own review of Chairman Scanlan’s actions and will undoubtedly produce a report of some kind and some public statement on the matter.  What they do from there is their internal business, but it should be noted that the word that got Scanlan into trouble was part of a long chain of images and language, re-tweeted over and over again.  From our cursory review of the tweets and re-tweets (there are more than 20,000 of them) we could find no original content from Chairman Scanlan that could be considered by traditional standards “offensive”.  That said, we do live at a time when just using the words “sir” or “ma’am” is problematic.  The presence of a penis does not mean what it has meant since the beginning of time.  One can give offense quite easily today.

One final point.  In many of the news reports, the phrase “deemed offensive” was used.  Who is doing the deeming?  In a nation that allows its flag to be burned as an act of speech or a Crucifix to be placed in a vat of urine as an act of art, what is offensive?  Now we have Katie Rotondi, joining with the designated “terrorist organization” CAIR, joining with anti-Semitic BDS legislators… and setting the bar for all of us as to what is or isn’t “offensive”.  We find that offensive.

"Stumbling John" McCann tries to b.s. the Sussex GOP

There is something strange about "Stumbling John" McCann and the shambolic sideshow he calls his campaign.  A few weeks ago, he visited Sussex County to attend a fundraiser hosted by the Skylands Victory PAC.  At that event, he stunned those present with a weird talk about how his wife -- an ob-gyn doctor in New York City -- did not perform "late-term abortions."  What???

Why would a candidate running in a Republican primary in Pro-Life Sussex County even bring that up?  But there he was, assuring everyone present of that distinction.  Did McCann take temporary leave of his senses, or did someone coach him to say it? 

Last night McCann was back in Sussex County, at the GOP county committee's final meeting of the year, and once again he couldn't keep it together.  In contrast to the others present, McCann attacked his fellow Republicans, played the arrogant  bully, and made a general nuisance of himself -- speaking so long that he had to be asked to stop.

And what did "Stumbling John" McCann talk about?  He talked about how great "Stumbling John" McCann was.  Hey, it's the holiday season and we all encounter buttholes like this at work parties and such, going on and on and on about their favorite subject... which is them.

McCann used the Sussex GOP to further embellish his tall tale about how he killed the Clinton Healthcare Plan.  Apparently forgetting what his own campaign biography states, McCann claimed to have been called on by the Wharton School to save healthcare.  That's not what he wrote in his bio.  Memo to McCann:  If you are going to b.s. -- at least be consistent.

The truth is a lot less than the story McCann makes from it.  McCann was a college intern in liberal Senator Arlen Specter's office.  At the direction of his superiors, John McCann claims to have made a graph.  That's right.  A graph.  And just like the typical self-important, overblown junior academic, he takes credit for the hard work of all those Senators and Congressman and Rush Limbaugh and talk radio and the medical professionals and all those thousands of conservative activists and all the reams of studies and research and opinion pieces and thousands of graphs of all those conservative and libertarian think tanks -- not to mention the Republican legal staffs of both the House and the Senate.  No mention of all them... it was "me" says McCann.  "Me and my graph... saved not just New Jersey... but America!"  Yeah, sounds like he gazed into that mirror a bit too long.

McCann followed up this hooey with the claim that, in 1995, he was the first to propose a 2% tax cap on property taxes in New Jersey.  McCann claims he got the idea from reading about Proposition 2 1/2 in Massachusetts and Proposition 13 in California.  Now here is where his b.s. breaks down entirely.

Leaving aside the fact that John McCann was never in a position to actually propose anything (he didn't hold the necessary public office), consider this...

Proposition 2 1/2 was passed in Massachusetts in 1980 and went into effect in 1982. 

Proposition 13 was passed in California in 1978 and went into effect immediately.

And John McCann wants us to believe that in all those years between 1978 and 1995, nobody (let's say that again) nobody had the idea to try it in New Jersey???

In fact, there were a plethora of newspaper stories discussing proposed caps in New Jersey as low as 1 1/2 percent nearly a decade before McCann claims to have thought of it.  There was even a ballot question on the issue in Bergen County. 

This guy is too sloppy, too angry and thin-skinned to be a real candidate.  That's why so many people think he's been put up by the Democrats to screw with the Republican primary.  As the Bergen County Record noted recently, McCann is the longtime right-hand man to Democrat Sheriff Michael Saudino. 

McCann's boss Saudino was on Hillary Clinton's Democrat ticket against the Republican ticket headed by Donald Trump in 2016.  The same ticket Josh Gottheimer was on.  That's too close for comfort in anyone's book.
