New Legislation Will Raise Smoking and Vaping Age to 21, Even for Military Who Are ‘Adult’ Enough to Fight

While tobacco use is certainly a danger to one’s health, so is fighting endless wars. If McConnell truly cares about the health and safety of our young men and women he should be fighting to make sure that they remain safely here at home.

New legislation that has been introduced by U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will ban people under 21 from purchasing tobacco or vaping products — even if they are in the military.

The United States considers our 18-year-old men and women ‘adult’ enough to fight and die for this nation, but not old enough to make decisions about their own health and recreation.

Originally, McConnell had planned a military exemption for the newly introduced legislation. However, he has now walked that back and declared that the ban will be for everyone without exception — including our troops. The legislation, originally introduced by Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), will allow states to make the age for purchasing even higher if they choose to do so.

“We’ve had plenty of evidence … that this is a public health problem of significant proportions,” McConnell said, adding that he doesn’t think the military should be “treated differently on a public health issue,” according to a report from McClatchy.

There are already 12 states that have raised the age for tobacco products to 21.

“It is our responsibility as parents and public servants to do everything we can to keep these harmful products out of high schools and out of youth culture,” McConnell said before Senate.

While tobacco use is certainly a danger to one’s health, so is fighting endless wars. If McConnell truly cares about the health and safety of our young men and women he should be fighting to make sure that they remain safely here at home.

You Love To See It: Rich Writer Cheers Rioters Burning Poor Areas, Calls Them ‘Animals’ When They Get To His

This is the best “life comes at you fast” of all time.

Published

A rich NBA writer was gleefully cheering as Minneapolis rioters burned down poor neighborhoods, but quickly changed his tune when they got to his area.

Chris Martin Palmer, a well known sportswriter, was tweeting things like “burn that sh-t down. Burn it all down,” when the rioters burned down an affordable housing project that was under construction.

Just days later, the riots began to creep closer to his home in a Los Angeles gated community, at which time the rioters became “animals.”

“They just attacked our sister community down the street. It’s a gated community and they tried to climb the gates. They had to beat them back. Then destroyed a Starbucks and now are in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood. Go back to where you live,” Palmer wrote, referring to the lower income areas they previously destroyed.

“Tear up your own shit. Don’t come to where we live at and tear our neighborhood up. We care about our community. If you don’t care about yours I don’t give a shit,” he added.

As he got called out on Twitter, he pretended that he only supported “peaceful” protesters all along, and wasn’t cheering for the arson.

“Make no mistake about it those who were looting were not protestors. They were criminals who just blended in. Hell bent on stealing and property destruction. When the legit protestors left midday everything went off the rails,” he wrote.

When someone tweeted at him saying “you can’t be with the chaos one minute then when it’s at your front door you switch it up,” to which the hypocrite replied “you better damn well believe I can.”

He was ratioed, of course.

Hilariously, Palmer also attended the riots and bragged about being tear gassed, in someone else’s neighborhood, of course.

The people who “don’t care” about their communities are people like this elderly disabled woman who now has no where to shop. She tearfully told a reporter that “George is in a better place than we are,” and said that she wanted to “go where George did,” as she watched the rioters destroy her neighborhood.

Funny how Palmer believes the destruction is all fun and games until it threatened him, even though he can actually afford to lose — unlike the woman above.

Nick Fuentes Does America First Groyper Chant on Live TV

“GROYPER! GROYPER! GROYPER!”

Published

Nicholas Fuentes, one of the leaders of a growing America First movement in the United States, bravely crashed a Florida news report to do a “Groyper” chant.

Fuentes hosts a political commentary show on DLive that has thousands of regular viewers.

Riots have been sweeping the nation after a black man died in the custody of Minneapolis Police on Monday. There have been murders, arson, kidnappings, and countless businesses have been destroyed by looting.

On Saturday, a white shop owner was stoned by a mob who was trying to loot his business. He appeared to be in critical condition. Another elderly white man was brutally jumped by the mob for trying to defend himself and his vehicle, before they turned his car over and lit it on fire.

As “Conservative Inc.,” the mainstream Republican organizations, continue to cave to pressure from leftists and silence, exclude, or “cancel” more and more interesting right-wing figures and voices — a dissident right has began to grow and organize.

From forming their own student groups, to organizing events that counter the “gatekeepers,” this movement, which largely believes in stopping immigration, ending senseless wars, and putting America’s citizens first, has been making major waves.

In the fall, the “Groyper War” took aim at more neoconservative figures on the right and asked tough questions during their speaking events.

During the “Groyper War,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw infamously told a young right-wing student who asked him a question about Israel at an event that he would “regret” doing so. Ben Shapiro gave a 45 minute long speech calling the Groyper students asking questions, and Fuentes, who became the de facto leader of the Groyper movement “alt-right.”

The dissident right also hosted an event to counter CPAC, called the America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC). The event featured speeches from “cancelled” right-wing figures, including Fuentes, plus former Daily Caller editor Scott Greer, American Identity Movement’s Patrick Casey, and conservatice icon Michelle Malkin.

Malkin’s gained the disdain of neoconservatives when she refused to disavow Fuentes and other young America First students during the “Groyper War.” Her refusal to participate in the cancel mob lead to her being removed as a speaker by the Young America’s Foundation (YAF).

UN Posts List of ‘Gender Neutral’ Terms For Normal Words — Your Landlord is Now Your ‘Owner’

Most absurdly, the UN wants you to now refer to your landlord and your owner.

Published

The United Nations are being brutally mocked on social media after posting a list of “gender neutral” terms to replace completely normal words.

Most absurdly, the UN wants you to now refer to your landlord and your owner.

“What you say matters,” the official UN account tweeted. “Help create a more equal world by using gender-neutral language if you’re unsure about someone’s gender or are referring to a group.”

The tweet included a link to the website for United Nations Entity for Gender Equality, also known as ‘UN Women,’ which appeared to be offline. It also included a small list of words that they have decided are problematic.

The tweet was met with immediate mockery to the point where they were brutally ratioed. Within six hours, the post had 17,200 responses and only 4,000 “likes.”

Commentators were especially astounded by the suggestion that you should call your landlord your owner. Others pointed out that some languages are gender specific and assign genders to inanimate objects, though it appears that the UN only takes issue with the English language.

People also called out how incorrect their suggestion of replacing “maiden name” with “family name” is.

“Maiden name and family name are distinct things though. The maiden name is the surname the person used to have before marriage. Family name can easily mean the surname they have now. You didn’t think think that one through, you’re creating ambiguity,” one user responded.

It sure is a good thing that the UN has nothing better to do during this pandemic than police language.
