A prominent figure in the losing GOP establishment had an odd message for high schoolers at a Turning Point USA conference on Tuesday.
“Raise your hand if you’ve ever posted anything online to quote-unquote ‘own the libs,’” said U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley at TPUSA’s High School Leadership Summit. “I know that it’s fun and that it can feel good, but step back and think about what you’re accomplishing when you do this — are you persuading anyone? Who are you persuading? We’ve all been guilty of it at some point or another, but this kind of speech isn’t leadership — it’s the exact opposite.”
“Owning the libs” is a popular phrase used by young people to describe proverbially beating down leftists online. According to Haley, fighting the left is not a good strategy. She’d rather we return to the era of conservative “persuasion” and “leadership.”
But the left does not care about civil discourse. Republicans are the enemy to the left, and they are treated as such. One does not reason with the enemy, rather one destroys the enemy. For precisely this reason, over the past 40 years conservatives have demonstrably lost on every single issue while trying to “persuade” and “lead.”
But still, Haley seems to prefer the losing approach.
“Real leadership is about persuasion, it’s about movement, it’s bringing people around to your point of view,” she said. “Not by shouting them down, but by showing them how it is in their best interest to see things the way you do.”
Earth to Nikki Haley: The liberals aren’t “coming around.” The only way for them to “come around” is for Republicans to capitulate to their demands. That’s how we got gay marriage, transgender bathrooms, abortion on demand and unfettered illegal immigration at the Southern border.
Conservative Inc. might want to tone down the rhetoric in order to avoid confrontation, but the new GOP – the one led by President Donald J. Trump, a president whose beliefs on issues like immigration and abortion actually match that of his voters – wants to keep winning.
The dying Republican establishment needs to either take a seat or join the other party. The new GOP will take it from here.

Bernie Sanders Supporters Spread Pro-Murder #GUILLOTINE2020 Hashtag Following Campaign Suspension
They aren’t even hiding their true intentions anymore.
Following news of socialist hero Bernie Sanders suspending his campaign for the Democrat nomination for President, some of his most extreme supporters made their voices heard with explicit calls for violence.
As soon as the announcement was made via live-stream, a dedicated segment of his supporters began using the hashtag #GUILLOTINE2020, seemingly advocating for using guillotines to behead their political enemies.
I want Jeff Bezos head in a guillotine. Then Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Mike Bloomberg, and of course, Donald Trump.
They shut down Bernie's political revolution, the only choice is a real revolution.#GUILLOTINE2020

These sort of posts, which some on the left attempt to downplay by claiming they are nothing more than jokes, have been showing up increasingly in recent years.
Far-left “journalist” Kim Kelly, who was fired from both Vice News and NPR for her extremism, wrote in Teen Vogue about the phenomena around this sort of fetishization of the guillotine, where she acknowledges that many are not joking in their posts:
“On social media, a tone-deaf tweet or Facebook post from any wealthy CEO or out-of-touch politician is invariably met with a sea of guillotine gifs, calls for retribution against predatory billionaires, or otherwise vitriolic responses from people with guillotine in their usernames — and it feels less and less like they’re joking.”
Kelly herself admits to having a guillotine tattoo, and if her writing is any indication, she likely wouldn’t hesitate to use one on her perceived political enemies. She has previously celebrated a militant Antifa cell after one of their members attempted to firebomb an ICE facility in Tacoma, WA. Kelly also created a guide on throwing milkshakes at those she perceives to be fascists while writing for VICE. Of course, the practice of “milkshaking” got world-wide attention following the brutal beating of independent journalist Andy Ngo, which involved the throwing of milkshakes.
Needless to say, the next few months could get extremely violent as supporters of Bernie Sanders continue to let their true intentions know. As Project Veritas exposed, these far-left views are even prevalent in Sander’s campaign, with one paid staffer stating, “Guillotine the rich” while on undercover video.
Even senior Sanders staff are making their more extreme views known, with his national Press Secretary Briahna Joy Gray admitting that the “Democratic” prefix in Democrat Socialism means nothing.
On the plus side, I can drop the “Democratic” from my tweets about why Socialism is good. 😉
