The virulently anti-Christian mainstream press was back at work Wednesday, trashing Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, for teaching at a Christian school that holds the standard belief that marriage should be held between a man and a woman.
“Karen Pence, the second lady of the United States, returned to teaching art this week, accepting a part-time position at a private Christian school that does not allow gay students and requires employees to affirm that marriage should only be between a man and a woman,” the former paper of record said, scorning the second lady.
Traditional marriage is not one of those religious liberties protected by the First Amendment by which the social justice warriors in the mainstream press can abide.
“How can this happen in America in 2019?” asked Washington Post editor and Politico writer Lois Romano on Twitter, attaching the hit piece on Pence.
However, in the name of “diversity,” which is now, and always will be, America’s greatest strength, the leftist press is willing to let the non-social-justice-friendly customs of Islam slide, which is exactly what they did when they wrote about freshman Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) attending her sex-segregated mosque.
“The symbolic importance of her new role was only starting to sink in as Ms. Tlaib walked into the women’s entrance of her family’s mosque on Friday for afternoon prayers,” the Times wrote in a glowing piece about Tlaib.
“Inside, Ms. Tlaib joined her mother and other women to form a single line at the front of the room. For the first time, an American almost certainly on her way to Congress stood shoulder to shoulder with her Muslim sisters and bowed toward Mecca,” it continued.
The Times and the rest of the social justice media simply glossed over the fact that, “in America in 2019,” to use Romano’s terms, Muslim women can’t even use the same entrance as Muslim men at the local mosque. This practice is among many Islamic customs that aren’t social justice friendly. But the press sweeps those under the rug, because… diversity!
An honest press would would be just as appalled at this obviously-sexist Islamic custom as they are at the fact that some Christians don’t believe in gay marriage, which they call homophobic on a regular basis.
But we do not have an honest press in the country – only a propaganda arm of the Democratic Party. So Tlaib gets a pass, and Pence gets bashed.
Our media is garbage.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
