I like this past paragraph (Emphasis mine):
What’s clear is that the depictions of Kurz and Strache as Islamophobic, intolerant, and radical failed spectacularly. In country after country, the Left is finding it will have to come up with a strategy beyond name-calling if it is serious about winning back lost voters.

A person properly schooled in right and wrong is safe with any weapon. A person with no idea of good and evil is unsafe with a knitting needle, or the cap from a ballpoint pen.

I remain pessimistic given the way BATF and the anti gun crowd have become tape worms in the guts of the Republic. - toad

When the debts all come due it's hard to insist that the people who point out that there's no money to pay for them were Sexist, Intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic, islamophobic, racist or bigoted.

The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .

Glad to see some eyes opening.
One secret to life. Step #1 - Find something you enjoy doing. Step #2 - Find someone foolish enough to pay you to do it.
