Kathy Griffin “normalizes” idea of decapitating a president, ISIS style

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

You can love Trump or hate him, but there’s a level of hate out there bordering on mental illness that I call Trump Derangement Syndrome. And now we’ve seen an outbreak of a new strain of TDS beyond anything ever seen before.

“Comedian” Kathy Griffin did a photo shoot, holding a simulation of Donald Trump’s severed head in the style of Islamic State terrorists who glamourize their murders in the Mohammedan way — a knife to the throat, posing for their victory shot holding up the severed head just so.

It’s one thing to blurt out a joke, an awful joke, but this wasn’t blurted out. There was no joke here. It was a symbol.

It was conceived; planned; staffed; constructed; staged; photographed, touched up; published; promoted.

Surely many worked on this with her, from beginning to end and not one said, “this is wrong; this is morally wrong; this makes me too uncomfortable; this makes me sick”.

You might not know Kathy Griffin, she’s a bit obscure but she was a celebrity who made millions, a political hero who CNN had on every New Years Eve ringing in the new year with Anderson Cooper.

What did CNN do when she came out with this decapitation video? Their first reaction was to think things over, not just fire her - they had to meet about it, weigh the pros and cons.

Trump himself tweeted about it saying that his children, especially 11 year old Barron, had a hard time with this.

But the offence isn’t to Barron Trump, or to Donald Trump. It’s to all of us — that a leading cultural figure, a shaper of ideas and of norms, has normalized the idea of decapitating a president.

Not a joke made with a smile. A carefully scripted and staged photo shoot.

That’s the cultural left with their embrace of violence — Islamic violence in particular.

And the shrug from the political-media establishment because it was only Trump, shows just how deep this rot goes.

Investigative Journalist Laura Loomer joins me to discuss the incredible hypocrisy of the left in the blatant double standard they apply to politicians on the right.

Next, Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com joins me to discuss Trump's probable jump out of the Paris Climate Deal.

Jimmy and Andrew, yikes, beheadings don’t disturb you! That’s all I need to know!

Jimmy falls back on his old goto response, so predictable, yawn.

The UN is using the fabricated climate apocalypse to control our lives from a to z. I personnally don’t want to be controlled by unelected dictators, and no good cause or reason would convince me otherwise. I am not the slave of somebody else. Unfortunately, many are too happy to give away their freedom and be controlled. Sad world we live in.

I am still in favour for free speech. But for every right there is an equal and opposite responsibility. Squelching free speech just drives the sickos underground. I like to have them in plain sight so we know who and what we’re dealing with. Then appropriate measures can be taken. Nothing like a good public shaming and humiliation. Too bad we don’t have the institution of pillory any more.

This is all we have left since the lefties refuse to exercise discernment- good, better, best, evil, bad, worse, worst. In my youth we were agreed that such behaviour was too reprehensible too be allowed and jailing probably would have happened. But since the left wants to abuse free speech this is the result.

Free speech was originally intended to put forth a contentious point of view to challenge official views that may not have been logically or rationally cogent. Now it has been twisted to be used by the degenerates of the world to spew their moral sewage. Not at all the same thing. But until the 3 Pillars of Leftiedom ( refusal to learn from their mistakes, refusal to learn from other people’s mistakes, refusal to exercise discernment) are knocked down we are stuck with this debauched skank and her ilk.

But fear not. Diversity is our strength. Just try this with the Tater Tot and you will have a visit from the RCMP. It all depends whose ox is being gored.

Kathy Griffin is an ugly woman on the outside and even uglier on the inside.
Comedian? I’m sure there are a lot of twisted people in this world that laugh at her so called comedy.
I never herd of this woman before this and I am a devoted fan of comedy. But then she is not in the same league as comedians such as Red Skeleton. Benny Hill and many others that have made me and countless others laugh with their humor. Totally unlike this sick woman.
The Secret Service is investigating and I sincerely hope that they charge her with something.

ANDREW STEPHENSON commenting on the SICK Kathy Griffin act said : “Free speech, until it offends
the rightists.”
Free speech? I always knew you were an idiot but for you to label this as free speech and suggest that it was only that, is insane.
But then like Reece and other idiot trolls that take up so much space and get all the good people involved in asinine arguments, you are a part of the insane left.
Idiot!

Hyacinth,

A simple Google images search will provide you will all the proof you need regarding how conservatives responded to Obama.

- People are getting sick of these empty headed sleazy celebrities. CNN has dumped her. I don’t think it’ll end here either.

- Griffin never leaves her echo chamber. Everyone she knows is like this. Trump is all evil, Democrats can do no wrong. Practicing socialist double-think clearly causes brain damage over time. It’s this sort of nonsense that got Trump elected in the first place. I’m betting it’ll get him reelected in 2020.

- The way it was set up the Paris agreement is only binding to the globalists that will implement it beyond the goal setting stage. This was their way of exempting OPEC, China & others from facing the same penalties they were imposing on the West.

She needs to be charged for her actions to incite hatred and the murder of a president!
commented 2017-06-01 10:25:22 -0400
She truly needs to get a response to this. Someone needs to quietly advise her that this is NOT an acceptable way to act.

I’d never suggest she stuff herself in a duffle bag, lock it from the outside and double tap to the back of the head, leaving the gun outside the bag…………

Wife: Who is Kathy Griffin?
Me: Hell if I know.
Wife: Oh. I just googled her. She does that New Years Eve show we never watch.

If this was Obama there would have been a second civil war . But it’s a white guy and a dumb white bitch so I guess it’s ok . She should be charged with insight to hate . The media should be charged as well .

The whole thing was more stupid than anything else. I am not the least bit offended or traumatized. We got bigger fish to fry.
commented 2017-06-01 04:07:11 -0400
My disgust of the left media, left politicians, left artists and Hollywood, and the majority of leftists is growing by the day. You just listen to the people invited by Tucker on Fox and all of them are violent in their words, they transpire violence and hatred. I didn’t know our society was so sick, really sick. It will turn bloody one day if they don’t stop.

“Well conservatives were perfectly fine with calling Obama a nigger and all the burning and hanging from trees effigies. Not to mention the memes that reference Obama as a gorilla/monkey. But now you are offended?”

You really know how to toss the bullshite around you paid troll, care to back up your bullshite with actual factual links not heresay from the leftard ranks? Thought not, you are such a bent knob that you couldn’t be straight if you tried. LMAO

The left are notorious for burning effigies, the KKK that were born within the very ranks of the Democrat Party burned crosses and effigies to terrorize people, also it was from within your leftard ranks that recent effigies were burned:

People are blowing the fake decapitation out of proportion.

Reece the mouth piece…..because you say it does not make it true. Back to mommas basement and take your meds. You are one demented clown for sure.

Jimmy Reece you may also not try to compare calling someone a name with something like this, it is nowhere near the same thing.
commented 2017-06-01 00:36:50 -0400
If some conservative comedian had done this to Obama there would have been an uproar like the world has never seen.
commented 2017-06-01 00:36:11 -0400
I love owning trolls like Jimmy Reece , they are so full of hate for conservatives that they do not think before they comment.
commented 2017-06-01 00:35:12 -0400
Jimmy Reece when the hell were conservatives ok with that? And show me all these people calling the n word and show me how you know they were conservative? And the people who did the tree stupidity were ARRESTED! The rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask was banned for life despite having worn masks of other presidents. Now go support the left who throws around the words homophobe and racist and others with little reason other than to deflect.

Indeed, Love Trumps Hate. Unless it is the irrational, vitriolic hate of Trump.

Bill Elder, not to mention all the coal Germany is still mining and burning since they figuered out shutting it down was economical suicide.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt commented – “President Trump just sent a message via Twitter, he will be announcing his decision on the Paris Accord Thursday at 3:00 pm”

The decision was made on the campaign trail and when he opened the coal operations and de-taxed alternate energy tech (clean coal tech). I think he would have loved to drop that bomb on the Euro trash at the NATO conference just to watch them wet their depends, but his policy handlers told him to wait. The Euros are all virtue posing anyway, they’re burning more Saudi oil than ever and they cancelled their wind energy programs, so any carbon reduction prattle is pablum for the paparazzi.
