Progressive Hypocrites: Ocasio-Cortez and Jimmy Kimmel [video]

Another week, another blatant display of hypocrisy and lack of awareness on the part of prominent Progressives, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jimmy Kimmel. Yawn.

As President Trump continues to be pummeled in the press – the latest via a combined group effort of over 300 editorialsAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez shows no need to be disturbed by the fact that she banned all media from her latest listening tour stops that were open to the public. It’s for the benefit of her supporters, she claims.

“We wanted to help create a space where community members felt comfortable and open to express themselves without the distraction of cameras and press. These were the first set of events where the press has been excluded,” [campaign spokesman] Trent said. “This is an outlier and will not be the norm. We’re still adjusting our logistics to fit Alexandria’s national profile.”

Adjusting the logistics to fit the national profile? Huh? Translation: It’s because she’s stepped in it far too many times lately and doesn’t want to have to deal with cleaning up her messes for a few days. But that’s right, Alexandria, you are learning – make all your “campaign speak” about what’s best for the people. Certainly it has nothing to do with your gaffe-tactic mouth, that happens to be primed in Stila’s very red “Stay All Day” liquid in Beso. (Sorry, it’s sold out, because that’s what’s important about her candidacy).

Well, this will never happen:

Just to balance out this critique and show you I am not being a Mean Girl, let’s look at the popular culture male embodiment of the Progressive. Jimmy Kimmel has something to answer for this week too: using “gay” and “looking like a woman” as a put down. Jack Phillips, the Colorado baker who just won his Supreme Court cake baking case (can you believe the Supreme Court had to resolve whether someone had to bake a cake or not?), is once again the target of the Progressive crowd for refusing to bake a cake celebrating a transgender awakening.

Jimmy Kimmel, doing his best impression of being introspective

Who is baking the cake is extremely important to the Left, and Kimmel, being America’s Conscience and all, had to call out that terrible man who doesn’t want to throw some pink icing on a delicious sugary dessert and call it a day. In Kimmel’s monologue he described the Christian baker thusly:

“You would think that someone who looks like the Reba McEntire’s version of Col. Sanders would be more sympathetic to gender identity issues,” the host laughed.

Gee, Jimmy, you would think someone who professes to be a supporter of LGBTQ_ rights to be more sensitive to the very real psychological torment transgender people suffer by looking like a gender they don’t fully accept. (Not to mention the gratuitous insult to country singing sweetheart, Reba).

But he had a few more laughs to milk out of his own self-loathing sense of existence:

“The Colorado civil rights division says [Phillips] has to bake it for them. And he doesn’t want to. Which is really funny,” Kimmel added. “Because this is a guy who spends all day, every day, meticulously designing flowers out of icing. His whole life is gay.”

Yes, it is really funny when Progressives use stereotypes as the punchlines of their jokes. To be clear, it is NOT funny when anyone else does it. Those are the RULZ.

Make no mistake, I personally don’t care if Ocasio-Cortez tries to hide her foot-in-mouth disease from the public while she shores up her talking points, or if Kimmel tells off-color tired jokes. I can choose to form my opinion of them by their actions, and I would hope a discerning public can make the same educated conclusions as well. The part though that I DEMAND they refrain from is being hypocrites! I forbid them to use double-standards, and to use rationalized justifications for all the misdeeds of people on “their side.” I say STOP IT! And they will, right?

But since the first step in coming to terms with your ailment is to admit you have one, I doubt they will heed my calls for parity anytime soon. They have righteousness stuffed so far up their backside, it is probably impossible for them to enter a state of true awareness. Righteousness is in their DNA, don’t ‘cha know?

So what can we do, as people who do care about true tolerance, i.e., living tolerantly? We don’t care if someone makes a transgender celebration cake. Have at it! But if someone doesn’t want to make it, lay off, for goodness sake.

I don’t see how, at this point, there is any way that Jack Phillips doesn’t successfully defend against this new lawsuit, or win his own that he just brought against the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. I think from the Court’s point of view, even though their holding did not say that forcing someone to bake a cake IS expression (which would trigger free speech protection), the repeated assault to this one person for the same issue is going to go absolutely nowhere. There is no objective way the Commission can claim there is not bias in their process, after having been found to have bias in their process. I say they lose, and Jack Phillips gets a nice fat settlement. People of Colorado, you are buying some cake whether you like or not.

And Jimmy Kimmel will not be getting the last laugh.
