Top 3 Most Outrageous Political Trends of 2017

Kristin TateRebel Buzz Contributor

 

As we head into 2018, let's take a look back at three of the most outrageous things to happen on the political scene in 2017:


"Celebrities" making violent threats against President Trump

In May, comedian Kathy Griffin posed for photos featuring Trump's bloody head. Intended for an audience eager for more radical action, Griffin jumped over a big red line. Even USA Today asked: Did she commit a felony?

Griffin eventually apologized, saying she went "too far," but it was too little too late.

Unfortunately, Griffin was only one of numerous public figures to make violent threats against President Trump.

The left's calls for "civility" during the 2016 election were never genuine. Such efforts are simply tools to silence their political foes.


The #MeToo movement

When Hollywood legend Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual misconduct-including rape-by numerous well-known actresses in October, it started the #MeToo movement.

America was shocked as countless powerful men in Hollywood, politics and media saw their careers destroyed after years, sometimes decades, of sexual misconduct was exposed.

The #MeToo movement has been empowering for women. And it's good to see serial sexual abusers being shamed. Most of these men deserve exactly what they're getting.

However, the media has been treating all misdeeds on the same level.

A man like Al Franken, who was accused of touching women's behind's during photo-ops, is receiving the same amount of shaming as others who are accused of actual rape.


CNN went nuclear during the first year of the Trump administration

For many of us "deplorables," the best part of 2017 was watching CNN implode.

Prior to Trump getting into office, CNN touted itself as non-biased.

But this year, in response to the Trump administration, the network flagrantly displayed its liberal agenda.

During his second month in office, Trump even banned CNN from a White House press briefing.

After a full year of being exposed, CNN has decided to disinvite itself from the White House holiday party. I'm sure they won't be missed.

I loved it when the Dow kept breaking record highs. For all the Obama years, it struggled but once Trump took office, WOOOOOOOOSH!

When Darth Vader calls CNN the most trusted name in news, you know something is a miss. lol

Favorites of 2017? ISIS blown out. The “Alt-Right” becomes a few nuts in even fewer places. The left getting exhausted after too many temper tantrums and begin to realize Trump is going nowhere, but continue to cry. The US pulls out of the expensive Paris UN climate cocktail party. Tax cuts in the US. US Stock markets soar.
The US gets out of the way of businesses innovating.
Trudeau is exposed as a brainless, ethicless, vapid cartoon character of a prime minister who would rather pay tribute to dictators and terrorists than veterans and crying women who can’t afford a tesla to “save” the “environment”. Notley desperately tries to stay in office, pathetically. A lot of bad happened in 2017 but I’m trying to emphasize the positive.
Lastly, The Rebel survives despite nuts in Charlottesville and loosing Gavin, Faith and Lauren. All the best for the Rebel in 2018!

I see our Supreme Soviet Media is all upset that President Trump is the first President in forty years to not visit Canada in his first year in office.
Why would Trump waste his time on a twit like Trudeau?
Trudeau has made a complete joke of Canada internationally.Our swooning media hasn’t figured out that their Prince is falling on his face.

Only dumb asses think Mr. Trump is bad Jay . If your Liberal shoe fits , stick it were the sun don’t shine . Who the hell in the Liberal party are you ? At least there is something in Trumps head not like little potato and company .
CBC the most bias piece of shit reporting ever . Right up there with China .

I wish the rebel staff a very happy New Year. But I wish they’s fix this website to make it smoother to post comments, and to edit them clicked twice below, seeing as it was not posting right away. Bad software, Rebel, bad software. C’mon, guys, you can do better than this amateurish Comment space for your loyal readers!

One of my favorite pastimes this year was listening to how the CBC television network (among many of the MSM dumbos) bends over backwards to paint Trump in a virile way while air-brushing Obama et el. I DON’T watch CBC; just hear my wife tuning in. Such bias there! But what is not known to the left is the popularity among conservatives like me on who Trump is and what he has done already. It’sm astonishing to see his accomplishments. And not a single piece of accusation has stuck to him because it’s all crap. Pay attention, Jay Kelly. Being an ignorant troll doesn’t make you Canadian, it makes you stink.

Jay Kelly??.. After all these months “Jay Kelly” again?… Which iteration of the same troll is this?…
commented 2017-12-30 01:08:21 -0500
Jay Kelly is just upset that Trump is wiping out his ISIS buddies. TEE HEE!
commented 2017-12-30 01:07:42 -0500
Jay Kelly he is not despised except by losers like you. Now go be a good little bigot until they cut your head off.
commented 2017-12-30 00:46:40 -0500
I suspect that most Canadians would make rather violent comments about Donald Trump. The spiteful president of the United States is despised by most Canadians. He is sexist in a way that offends Canadian sensibilities.

“Off with his head” would be an understandable response.

The msm is lying, dying and crying about their self-inflicted wound!

CNN and of course Canada’s CBC ( Caliphate Broadcasting Corporation ) are the very definition of fake news …..unless a story fits through their ultra constricting definition of political correctness it won’t be touched or mentioned
A couple of examples
1) ridiculously high immigration levels to Canada when many Canadians can’t find a home or a place to live………..nope , won’t touch it.
2) money laundering off shore criminals mainly from China buying up Canada’s real estate and farmland ( and politicians ) and displacing Canadians ……….nope , won’t touch it.
3) the glaringly obvious nightmaric result of Islamic immigration into Europe……..nope ,won’t touch it.
The list goes on and on
The MSM is a joke
commented 2017-12-29 16:51:50 -0500
We are all so sad and broken hearted that CNN has uninvited itself to the White House functions.
I’m sure they will be missed – NOT!
My New Year wish is that CBC goes the way of the Dodo bird, although the Dodo bird is sorely missed.
commented 2017-12-29 15:12:24 -0500
CNN, CBC, BBC. Antifa Cucks, the whole dammed lot of them. The Rebel has a License for the White House Press Conference’s but I don’t think they ever get a chance to ask a question.

President Trump, if You permit the Rebel to ask a question, we ‘are’ on your side, You will have CNN so upset, they will go into convulsions.

Kristin Tate—-My late father had it right referring to sexual harassment etc. when he said, “Men lie 50% of the time, as do the women involved.”
commented 2017-12-29 14:48:50 -0500
… It is repulsive to hear from Levant that Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter all attack and financially persecute Rebel media- especially any criticism of Justin Trudeau.
… That is the putrid smell of pure CORRUPTION.
commented 2017-12-29 14:33:10 -0500
Hey CNN , the problem with being pathetic and full of sh*t is that no one really gives a damn when you pout and stay away.
