Commentary: The woke left wishes its own version of ‘Merry Christmas’ to American ‘f***ers’

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been getting a lot of heartwarming Christmas cards this yuletide season from President-elect (allegedly) Joe Biden’s ministers and ambassadors of healing and reconciliation. They’ve touched me in such a deep, special place that I must share such glad tidings of great joy with a weary nation.

Take Secretary of Kink Katie Hill as just one example. The former congresswoman from California let me know via her drunken mistletoe that my vote for Trump made me truly unique: “Because y’all are the biggest bunch of f***ers in history. Stop being that and unity/healing will be a hell of a lot easier.”

What a glorious thorn … err … olive branch. I will cherish it always.

Not to be outdone in the area of feminine grace was Secretary of Washed-Up Actors Debra Messing, who cheerfully shared to the tune of “All I Want for Christmas” her blessed hope that Trump would one day be anally raped in prison. Come, let us adore him, indeed.

Sometimes, though, Christmas cards are so full of love and tenderness that they have to be deleted from Twitter out of embarrassment for just loving too darn much. It happens.

Then there’s our emissary of Woke Sports, ESPN analyst Domonique Foxworth, who said that his 12 days of Christmas all involve rooting for Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen to fail. All because Allen’s supporters unfortunately exposed their chestnuts over an open fire by being “people with American flags” in their social media profiles. And this island of misfit toys probably knows all the words to “Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer,” too, when what they really need to know is Foxworth’s preferred pronouns are “he hate me.”

But you want to know what spreads more Christmas cheer than singing loud for all to hear? How about hating Abraham Lincoln! I mean, obviously. Yep, Honest Abe may get the boot from the name of a San Francisco high school because he failed to demonstrate to the Secretary of Orwellian Education that “black lives matter to him.” Well, except for that one silent night John Wilkes Booth decked the halls of Ford Theater with his brain matter, I guess.

This is the season of giving, after all, and I just need more in my stocking than the Great Emancipator can ever offer me. Thankfully, this is 2020, when Christmas miracles abound. Like when Ambassador of Victimhood Noah Berlatsky said, “Parents are tyrants. ‘Parent’ is an oppressive class, like rich people or white people.” Indeed, Mary did you know … that you were on your way to a Klan meeting?

Now some may be tempted to tell all these fiends to shove it up their North Poles. But to that I say “bah humbug.” As we all know, Tiny Tim was just an unviable tissue mass riddled with tumors. In fact, it would have been best for him to be aborted before he was born, to cut down on the surplus population.

Likewise, we should feel honored to be ruled by such wise non-binary beings as currently reside at the New England Journal of Medicine. Away in their manger, the gifts they have to offer are stocking stuffers like this recent quote: “Sex designations on birth certificates offer no clinical utility, and they can be harmful for intersex and transgender people. Moving such designations below the line of demarcation would not compromise the birth certificate’s public health function but could avoid harm.”

Nary a prophet of old has spoken so much unbridled joy to the world. The science or something has come, so let every heart prepare room for the knowledge that biology is now bigotry.

Therefore, understand this, and understand it well — “Little Drummer Boy” is his dead name now. He henceforth goes by the Twitter handle “Zinnia, adult demon female,” and it calls for all children to be put on puberty blockers until they can make their own “informed” decision about their gender. You never saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus, because mommies are merely oppressive constructs of the patriarchy.

Hark, the trans angels sing!

Merry Christmas, ya bunch of f***ers.

Biden administration Congress Healing and unity Intelwars Jen o'malley dillon Joe Biden Katie hill Marco Rubio

Democrat Katie Hill, who resigned from Congress over sex scandal, actually calls Republicans ‘biggest bunch of f***ers in history’

One might say the adage “it takes one to know one” now applies to disgraced former U.S. Rep. Katie Hill.

Oh, do tell!

The California Democrat — who resigned from Congress in 2019 just months into her freshman term amid allegations of an extramarital affair with her legislative director and publication of leaked nude photos of Hill — got an eyeful of Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio’s tweet concerning the divisive words of Jen O’Malley Dillon, the incoming deputy chief of staff for President-elect Joe Biden.

“Biden talks about unity and healing, but you want to know what they really think?” Rubio asked in his Wednesday post. “Read how the person he wants as the next WH deputy chief of staff called Republicans in Congress a bunch of f***ers.”

Hill apparently couldn’t help herself — and fired off a response to the Florida senator:

“Because y’all are the biggest bunch of f***ers in history,” Hill wrote. “Stop being that and unity/healing will be a hell of a lot easier.”

Let the backlash begin

It should come as no surprise that a few folks found it a bit maddening — and quite humorous — that Hill had anything to say at all on the matter, particularly given her dubious resume.

And her F-bomb didn’t go unnoticed, either:

  • “The woman who had three-ways with her staff and had to resign because of it is calling people ‘f***ers,'” comedian Tim Young commented. “Just perfect.”
  • “Hilarious! Thank you for putting the true hatred of the Left on display for the world to see,” another commenter wrote. “We will NEVER unite with evil. Never.”
  • “Trust Katie,” another user quipped. “She is an expert on a bunch of f***ers.”

Anything else?

Hill — who launched a podcast titled “Naked Politics” in October — denied the allegations of an affair but admitted to having a “consensual” three-way relationship with a female campaign staffer and her now-ex husband prior to taking office. Hill blamed “rampant biphobia” as a major factor in her decision to step down.

And in regard to O’Malley Dillon’s F-bomb that got this whole thing rolling, an Axios report indicated that some advisers close to Biden are frustrated over what she had to say about congressional Republicans. The piece quoted a Biden donor as saying, “For those of us who, from Day One, bought into Biden’s calls for civility and a return to normalcy, this isn’t just beyond the pale — it’s plain stupid.”

Affair Intelwars Katie hill Naked politics Nudes podcast

Former Democratic rep whose nude photos were leaked set to host ‘Naked Politics’ podcast

Former Democratic Rep. Katie Hill (Calif.) has announced she will be launching a new podcast called “Naked Politics,” her latest venture since resigning from Congress amid affair allegations and the publication of photos showing her in the nude.

What are the details?

The Hill reported Friday that Ms. Hill’s podcast promises to “expose the naked truth behind what goes on” in the beltway.

“This podcast is where we can get dirty,” the California Democrat told the outlet. “It’s where we can expose the naked truth behind what goes on. The backroom deals, the monied interests, the inability to break from the party. This podcast is here to expose what’s wrong in politics today, undressing the issues, and how we can fix them.”

Hill gave up her seat months into her freshman term last year after the Democrat-led House Committee on Ethics launched an investigation into allegations that she had an extramarital affair with her legislative director, which would be in violation of new House rules established in response to the #MeToo movement.

While Hill denied the affair, she admitted to having a “consensual” three-way relationship with a female campaign staffer and her now-ex husband prior to taking office. The former congresswoman later blamed “rampant biphobia” as a major reason for her stepping down.

The week before Hill announced her resignation, leaked nude photos of her were published by the Daily Mail and conservative outlet Red State. At the time, she was estranged from her then-husband, and blamed conservative media for “perpetuating” his “abuse by providing him a platform.”

“I will fight to ensure no one else has to live through what I just experience,” she said in a video message announcing her departure from office. “Some people call this electronic assault, digital exploitation, others call it revenge porn. As the victim of it, I call it one of the worst things we can do to our sisters and our daughters.”

Anything else?

Hill also recently released a memoir, titled “She Will Rise,” saying she wrote it “to empower women to lead despite many roadblocks and sexist standards.”

A show based on the book is in the works, and Hill will be played by actress Elizabeth Moss.

The first episode of “Naked Politics” on Oct. 20 will feature an interview with former Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum (D), who recently came out as bisexual months after photos were leaked showing him passed out in a hotel room with a gay male escort and crystal meth.

Disgraced politicians Elisabeth moss Intelwars Katie hill Movies She will rise: becoming a warrior in the battle for true equality

Disgraced former Rep. Katie Hill gushes over actress who will portray her in new film. Former staff then hack her Twitter account and accuse her of abuse.

Disgraced former Democratic Rep. Katie Hill (Calif.) announced Wednesday that actress Elisabeth Moss is set to portray her in an upcoming film adaption of Hill’s book, “She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for Equality.”

Hill
resigned from office in 2019 amid a House ethics investigation into allegations that she engaged in an inappropriate sexual relationship with at least one of her former congressional staffers.

Amid the announcement of the new project, social media users who purported to be former Hill staffers hacked a dormant government Twitter account formerly belonging to Hill in order to slam the project and accuse their former boss of abuse.

What are the details?

On Wednesday, Hill
tweeted, “I can finally announce another exciting project! I’m so honored to be played by the iconic Elisabeth Moss, and thrilled to work with this incredible team. Guess I’m about to add movie producer to my resume…”

Hill linked a story from
Variety, which detailed the film’s premise as written in the book:

In the book, Hill recounts her experience as a young woman with no prior political experience whose charm, and common sense won over the people in her district and thrust her into the halls of power in Washington. While her brash confidence won her powerful allies and infuriated her enemies, it was privately concealing a cycle of domestic abuse she was trapped in at home, infamously culminating in the release of intimate photos and the revelation of her own admitted personal mistakes that would eventually result in her stunning fall from grace.

Hill will also serve as executive producer of the film.

In a statement on the TV project, Hill said, “I wrote ‘She Will Rise; to try to take back my story from those who have exploited and twisted it. I also wanted to shine a light on the stories of women whose resilience and bravery gave me strength when I needed it most, and hopefully to provide inspiration to others. Having this larger platform to tell this story, working with the talented team at Blumhouse and Michael [Seitzman], and the incredible Elisabeth Moss as the lead, is more than I ever could have imagined — I am so grateful for the opportunity and look forward to collaborating on this project.”

Moss is well-known for her portrayal in “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

In a statement on the new project, Moss gushed, “I am so honored to have the opportunity to portray Katie and to help tell her story. Her strength and work to amplify women’s voices is incredibly inspiring to me and her experiences could not be more important for us to magnify right now. As always, Jason and the Blumhouse team are such incredible partners and Lindsey [McManus] and I are thrilled to make something powerful with them and Michael.”

Jason Blum for Blumhouse Pictures — best known for its horror movies — told the outlet that the production company “pursued the project” because they “believe in Katie and her message of empowering women and breaking the system.”

What else?

An old government Twitter account that used to belong to Hill was
hacked Wednesday, purportedly by “former staff” who blasted the film and accused the disgraced former lawmaker of workplace abuse.

The tweets said that Hill is no hero, and that she “took advantage of her subordinates” and never took accountability.

“Katie Hill can be both a victim and perpetrator,” one of the tweets read. “And, staff can experience severe consequences for speaking out against their powerful boss. No one should have to put themselves in harm’s way for the public to understand a simple truth: Katie Hill is not a hero for women. We deserve heroes who embody our values even in the most difficult moments.”

“She caused immense harm to the people who worked for her, many of whom were young women,” the tweets added, according to an archived shot of the feed.

The lengthy thread concluded, “Enough is enough. In order to advance the #MeToo movement, we must be willing to acknowledge the problematic behaviors among those in our own communities. Only then will we see true progress. #TimesUp #MeToo.”

The tweets remain active at the time of this reporting, and you can view them in their entirety
here.

Following the hack, Hill issued a
statement insisting that she returned control of the government account to the House Clerk following her 2019 resignation.

“Thanks to all who let me know my government official twitter account was hacked. Control of my account was immediately handed back to the House Clerk when I resigned, including password changes and access restrictions. God knows who hacked it from there. Reported to @twitter,” she wrote.

“Regardless of their author, the content of the hacked tweets is something I have talked about at length … regarding my decision to resign, as well as the constant work and reflection I’ve done since then,” she
continued. “I look forward to continuing to have conversations around these issues and using my platform to support women.”

She
concluded, “I look forward to continuing to have conversations around these issues and using my platform to support women in any way possible.”

California California 25th district Intelwars Katie hill Mike garcia Throuple congress seat

Katie Hill says she cried for days after the GOP flipped her former congressional seat: ‘f**king devastating’

Katie Hill said that she cried for days and was devastated by Republicans flipping her congressional district from Democratic control in a special election.

The former U.S. congresswoman tweeted that it was her fault the seat went back to Republican hands.

“So yeah it really hurt to have my old seat flip back to Republican-for a ton of people & also for me. In fact, it was pretty f***ing devastating,” Hill tweeted on Monday.

“I went offline & cried for a few days but, as always, getting ready to stand back up & keep fighting. Hope you are too,” she added.

Hill resigned from Congress during a firestorm of controversy related to the release of explicit photographs of her in a “throuple” relationship. The report claimed that she had engaged in an unethical relationship with one of her staffers, accusations she has denied.

That seat was won by former Navy fighter pilot Mike Garcia, a Republican.

“Let’s be clear. My ex gave nonconsenual nude pics of me to the ppl who wanted this seat- people who were backing Garcia when he was my opponent,” Hill explained in a second tweet.

“They gave those pics to the press. I resigned,” she added. “I take full responsibility for my mistakes, but this Republican win is no coincidence.”

Hill went on to apologize to the Democratic candidate who lost the election to Garcia and promised to work to win the seat back for Democrats in November when it goes up for vote again.

Previously to Hill flipping the seat for Democrats, it had stayed under Republican control for 25 years.

The victory for Garcia was the first time since 1998 that Republicans had been able to flip a seat from Democratic control in California.

Here’s more about the special election:

25th district california California Intelwars Katie hill Mike garcia Throuple congress seat

Breaking: Republican Mike Garcia wins upset victory for California’s seat in Congress

After a drawn out election contest, Republican Mike Garcia won an upset victory in California’s 25th district after Democratic California State Assemblywoman Christy Smith conceded the special election on Wednesday.

The seat had flipped from Republican control to the Democrats when Katie Hill won the seat in 2018. She resigned in disgrace after her “throuple” relationship made for sensationalistic headlines and great controversy in October.

Garcia, who is a former Navy fighter pilot, will serve out the rest of the term until November, when the seat will go up for election again.

Smith conceded with a statement on Facebook.

“[W]e believe that the current tally shows Mike Garcia is the likely victor in the May 12 special election,” she said. “As such, I’d like to congratulate him.”

President Donald Trump weighed into the special election when he tweeted a warning that Democrats were trying to rig the election against the Republicans.

“Dems are trying to steal the Mike Garcia Congressional Race in California. Republicans, get out and VOTE for your terrific candidate, ASAP!” he tweeted on May 11.

After the election as the votes were still being tabulated, the president congratulated Garcia.

“Big Congressional win in California for Mike Garcia, taking back a seat from the Democrats,” Trump tweeted.

“This is the first time in many years that a California Dem seat has flipped back to a Republican,” he added.

Democrats hoped to retain the seat as a sign that they were gaining strength and enthusiasm in the run up to the presidential election. Those hopes have been dashed away.

Here’s more about the election for California’s 25th district:

2020 democratic primary Bernie Sanders California cenk uygur House of Representatives Intelwars Katie hill Progressive left The Young Turks

Far left YouTube candidate Cenk Uygur melts down on his show, disastrous election numbers roll in

Cenk Uygur, a combative progressive YouTube personality, was visibly angered by the lackluster performance of his favored presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), in the Super Tuesday primary elections.

His co-hosts also appeared stunned when the disastrous poll results rolled in for his campaign for California’s seat in the US House of Representatives.

In a video posted on Twitter from the progressive YouTube show “The Young Turks,” Uygur can be seen tearing up before leaving the show altogether.

Uygur earlier in the show accused Joe Biden of suffering from senility and claimed the only reason he was beating Sanders was because the media was unfair to the socialist democrat.

Sanders was looking to defend his frontrunner status in the Super Tuesday primary elections, but Joe Biden routed him in many states and set himself up for a probable victory for the Democratic nomination.

Uygur’s co-hosts continued on to report that early numbers from the campaign for California’s congressional seat showed he was garnering less than 5 % support, in fourth place behind two Republicans and one other Democrat.

The far left progressive ran a controversial campaign that included an endorsement by Sanders that was revoked only hours later after comments from Uygur created a backlash and negative headlines.

Uygur was also openly hostile to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the Democratic establishment, which he said accused of taking legal bribes from corporations.

Here’s an interview with Uygur about his campaign:

Brian Stelter Intelwars Katie hill Media Bias Playboy

Report: CNN and NY Times journalists caught at party with disgraced former congresswoman

It seems like life is back to normal for Katie Hill, the disgraced former member of Congress who resigned last October after it was revealed that she and her husband were involved in an intimate “throuple” with one of her congressional staffers. In fact, Page Six reported that Hill may be “dating” Playboy’s Washington, D.C., political correspondent, Alex Thomas.

The two were reportedly spotted at a posh Manhattan party last week for the launch of Lachlan Markay and Asawin Suebsaeng’s book, “Sinking in the Swamp.” The book said to be “a deep dive into the murky underworld of President Trump’s Washington” that exposes the “charlatans” and “run-of-the-mill con artists” who have “infected” the nation’s capital.

Hill denies the two are dating

Hill and Thomas were spotted at the party by at least two attendees who spoke to Page Six on background.

“They arrived together, they were together all night, and they left together,” an attendee of the Upper East Side party said. Another anonymous source noted the two “kept going outside to smoke together.”

Page Six contacted Thomas for comment who denied that he and Hill, who is currently going through a divorce, are in a relationship.

Guess who else was in attendance?

CNN’s Brian Stelter, Oliver Darcy, and Vicky Ward were also said to be at the party, along with New York Times Styles reporter Taylor Lorenz. Stelter’s attendance is notable since he, as the host of “Reliable Sources,” frequently calls out his industry colleagues for biased reporting. It is unclear if any of the journalists interacted with Hill or Thomas at the event.

Page Six also noted that when the scandal surrounding Hill first broke and nude photos of the former House member were leaked online, Thomas defended her. The Playboy reporter accused the National Republican Congressional Committee of “shopping around” the pictures of Hill. The NRCC denied this.

Hill said the photos were part of a smear campaign by media conservatives. She has also attributed her resignation, in part, to “biphobia” on Capitol Hill.

book Book deal Congress Intelwars Katie hill Throuple

‘An act of defiance’: Disgraced former congresswoman Katie Hill announces she’s going to publish a memoir

Former Democratic Congresswoman Katie Hill, who resigned from the House of Representatives last year amid a House Ethics Committee investigation into an alleged affair with one of her Capitol Hill staffers, doesn’t plan to be out of the public eye any time soon. Instead, she’s planning to publish a book.

According to a Wednesday story at the New York Times, Hill will publish a book titled “She Will Rise” in mid-August on the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The report adds that Hill’s book will be “part memoir, part gender-equity battle plan.”

Hill’s intent, the Times said, is for women to know that they “that they can own their mistakes and get back up, no matter how difficult their experience.”

“It would be much easier for me to just disappear, but I’m not, and this is an act of defiance, staying in the forefront,” Hill told the newspaper. “You can’t let other people take away your power or your voice, even when it’s hard.”

Hill announced her resignation from Congress in October just days after the House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into allegations that she may have had an extramarital affair with one of her legislative staffers, which she denies.

In addition to the ethics investigation, the House freshman had also been plagued by a report that she had engaged in a polyamorous “throuple” relationship that included a female campaign staffer. In the wake of the Ethics Committee investigation announcement, Hill admitted to a relationship with someone on her campaign and that doing so wasn’t appropriate.

“During the final tumultuous years of my abusive marriage, I became involved in a relationship with someone on my campaign,” Hill wrote in an email to supporters. “I know that even a consensual relationship with a subordinate is inappropriate, but I still allowed it to happen despite my better judgment. For that I apologize. I wish nothing but the best for her and hope everyone respects her privacy in this difficult time.”

In her farewell address to Congress, however, the outgoing freshman Democrat blamed a “double standard” and a “misogynistic culture” as key reasons informing her departure. More recently, in an interview with ABC News last week, the openly bisexual former legislator also blamed “biphobia,” which she described as “rampant,” for also helping drive her out of the lower chamber.

Arrested FBI Hacker Intelwars Katie hill

FBI arrests hacker who interfered with CA election — and he is directly linked to ex-Rep. Katie Hill’s campaign

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has arrested a man for allegedly hacking the campaign website of one of former Rep. Katie Hill’s (D-Calif.) rivals in the 2018 primary. The criminal complaint links the accused, Arthur Dam, directly to Hill’s campaign, which also employed his wife as a fundraiser.

What are the details?

The Intercept first reported on Dam’s arrest, noting that “during the campaign, the websites of Hill’s opponents, Democrats Jess Phoenix and Bryan Caforio…were both attacked, though Hill’s never was, raising suspicions at the time that Hill’s campaign was behind them.”

The outlet pointed to Dam’s $500 in-kind donation to Hill’s campaign for “graphic design and website security consultation.” Dam’s wife, Kelsey O’Hara, served as Hill’s fundraiser during the campaign and was hired as former congresswoman’s district director after she took office.

According to the feds, “Dam was found to be connected to the cyber attacks through subscriber information, IP addresses, geolocation history, and open sources, including through his employer and his wife, K.O., who worked for one of the Victim’s opponents.”

The focus of the investigation was on the damage done to Caforio, who is cited as the victim. Caforio’s website was shut down four times, with the most damaging occurring just an hour ahead of the most critical primary debate.

The complaint filed Wednesday further states, “The victim suffered various harms, including a reduction in political donations and campaign visibility, and between approximately $27,000 and $30,000 in expenditures and lost time to respond to, investigate, and mitigate attacks.”

Hill went on to win the primary by under 3,000 votes. She ultimately won the general election, but resigned months after taking office following a leak of nude photos and amid allegations that she had a sexual relationship with one of her congressional aides.

The former representative denied that allegation, but admitted to having an “inappropriate” relationship with a female campaign staffer. She later blamed her resignation on right-wing media and “rampant biphobia.”

“I’m absolutely shocked and saddened to learn today that Katie Hill’s campaign associates hacked my campaign in order to help her advance through the primary, “Caforio told The Intercept. “This should serve as a reminder that Russia is not the only threat to our democracy. There are bad actors on all sides who will do anything for their own personal gain, and we need to come together as Americans to defend our country and hold everyone responsible accountable.”

As of this writing, Ms. Hill had not responded to The Intercept’s nor The Hill‘s requests for comment on Dam’s arrest.

Affair Aide Biphobia ethics Intelwars Katie hill Resign

Dem ex-Rep. Katie Hill says ‘rampant biphobia’ was a ‘huge part’ of why she resigned

Former Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif) claimed this week that “rampant biphobia” played a significant role in her decision to step down from Congress, because of the backlash she received after nude photos of her were leaked online amid rumors of her sleeping with subordinates.

Hill resigned in October after the House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into allegations that the California Democrat had a sexual relationship with a male legislative aide. She admitted at the time to previously having an “inappropriate” relationship with a female campaign staffer prior to being elected.

What are the details?

ABC News‘ George Stephanopoulos asked Hill in an exclusive interview that aired Thursday whether she regretted her decision to leave office. “I strongly feel that I made the right call in stepping down for several reasons,” the former lawmaker replied. “One of which, is that I did not want to be a liability to my colleagues.”

Hill explained, “We knew from the people who had…obtained the [explicit] photos that there were hundreds more images and text messages that were out there that I had no idea what they could be.”

Stephanopoulos then noted that the scandal surrounding Hill “exploded,” and asked the former congresswoman, “How much of it is tied to the fact that, in your mind, that you’re bisexual?”

“I think a lot of it is, and it’s also partly because I’m a woman,” Hill responded, claiming, “The bisexuality is a huge part of it.”

Hill went on to reason, “There’s biphobia that is rampant, still, and certainly misunderstanding of what bisexuality is.”

Anything else?

When Hill resigned during her freshman year in office, she used her farewell speech to blame “right-wing media” and “misogynistic culture” for her downfall.

Yet, Hill was being investigated for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with a congressional aide, which is a violation of a House Ethics rule aimed at protecting subordinates from members who might use their power to take advantage of staffers. The rule was implemented in reaction to the #MeToo movement.
