Fox reported, “Media mogul Steve Forbes said he was assaulted by angry protesters Wednesday night in New York City at a conservative book launch party. “Forbes, the 75-year-old CEO of Forbes Media, was in attendance at an event for the launch of a new book written by conservative authors Bethany Mandel and Karol Markowicz. He said protesters disrupted the event by throwing drinks at him and toppling a book display.”
Forbes magazine is 95% owned by a Hong Kong based company. Hong Kong is run by communist China. Enough said.
And Trumpenfreude lives on.
I used to subscribe to Forbes until my best friend went on a business show on Fox Business. Steve Forbes was also a guest that day. When my friend told me of Forbes’ comments on various topics while waiting in the green room, I cancelled.
“They were not protesters. They were attackers.”
“…protesters behaved like ‘dogshit.’”
“Always bear in mind Democrats banned black people from eating at Woolworth’s.”
The left eats their own. I'm just hoping they get it done before they drive the rest of us insane.
As an RVN vet, I Must vote "Jane".
Jane Fonda (makes me puke to write her name) should have been arrested for treason upon her return from north viet nam and hung as punishment for all the harm she did to our soldiers. I hope I live long enough to spit on her grave!
When jobs and money are obtained based on skin color and righting a faux past wrong our society is doomed. At some point there will be another “shot heard around the world and the left will join the Dodo bird in history’s junk heap.
So so so disappointed in Steve Forbes. Trump does exaggerate but lies? Point them out please especially all the lies laid against Steve like when he threw his hat in the ring. Trump moved the Conservative Ball down field farther than anyone in recent memory yet under the Bus he must go. It's all so insane.
These lies and distortions are evidence of a spiritual darkness that is falling all over the earth. At the risk of engendering the displeasure of Don Surber or any others here who may disagree, I am posting the following remarks I have already posted in the Open Thread at Conservative Tree House. These are the bottom-line facts regarding this darkness of evil now afflicting every living thing on earth:
Religion, or, more precisely, the revealed doctrine of Christ in western civilization has not grown much past where apostle Paul left it when he departed from this side of heaven. If it were not so, we all would be living in a much different kind of world. But, as a consequence of the failure to grow and bear its promised fruit, man-made doctrines of denominational Christianity no longer serve or advance the Doctrine of the Christ-man, Jesus of Nazareth.
This does not mean that Christ’s Doctrine itself has failed. The Great Implication of Christ’s Doctrine is that every element of every human life, especially those elements of which we are unaware and cannot know in our present state–all of THAT is naked and opened in God’s Sight. For anyone who is willing, anyone in whose heart the Christ is formed by Christ’s Faith (he is the author and finisher of faith), God our Father will, by His Spirit, coordinate and harmonize everything that He sees, right now, in each one of us, with everything else that He sees: which is everything. He will not make our choices for us. But in the lively Spirit, Faith and Doctrine of Christ, God our Father will lead us, and guide us, and help us make better choices.
Man-made interpretations of Christ’s Doctrine always fail. Man-made religion has no power to give anyone any kind of genuine hope. Only God can do that, “not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the LORD of hosts.” Man-made religion (of all kinds) cannot ever teach or bring to life the living truth of Christ’s Doctrine. And yet, the Holy Spirit abides with us.
“I am the way, the life and the truth” is now only a pretty saying of empty words in the lives of most humanity. The arrow of time flies toward its final mark. The Christ’s grim promise is shown more truthful in every passing hour: “Many are called, few are chosen.” The lies, terror, and darkness of the evil one take their toll. Memorize verses 1-10 of Psalm 91 and revolve those great words in your mind for the rest of your time on this side of heaven. Amen.
These activists/ protesters are being paid by someone. Follow the money, locate them, and take them out. ( Legally, of course). Far be it for me to promote violence. ( see Avatar). Seriously conservatives. Stop playing pussyfoot with these idiots. As a Christian, I believe in turning the other cheek, ONCE. The next sound you hear, will be your last.
The article says:
“Actor says Barron Trump should be ripped from mother’s arms, put in cage with pedophiles.”
Interesting choice of words. So by saying this, the left is admitting that pedophilia and as such, homosexuality, is wrong. It takes a strong people to stand up to this onslaught from the left, NOT pro child molesters such as Disney and Pepsi. As far as the poll at the end of this article says, my answer was Henry Fonda because everything wrong with a child today can be traced back to the parents, who in all cases, have too much money.
When was the last time you say a child molester/homosexual come from a poor country.
I had a up close, nasty experience with the lovely Hanoi. In an airport lobby nasty , evil, woman. She had the family Gulfstream chained to fuel truck for not paying a bill. Her fit was epic.
I swear a year or so ago I read somewhere that Forbes is now Chinese owned.
It shocked me at the time, that even a “capitalist business magazine” would have been captured by the CCP.
"And now Forbes the man has to put up with loony lefties who want to cancel him."
Not sure what about him you like, Don, but that's your business - I don't. He did nothing but inherit Malcolm's media enterprise. He's the kind of country-club RINO that the editorial staff of National Review, The Heritage Foundation, The American Enterprise Institute, Club for Growth, the Chamber of Commerce, and the GOPe love - and I loathe.
"Gopnik concluded, 'And what about civility? Well, fundamental to, and governing the practice of, civility is the principle of reciprocity: your place at my table implies my place at yours.'"
Wrong. You run a place of business - technically, yes, you reserve the right to deny service to anyone, for any reason. Hence, Woolworth's was barely within its rights to deny blacks service at the lunch counter, but it's a bad practice.
The market may not punish such at first, but once you begin discriminating on ideological grounds, watch out - the day may come when you are a second-class citizen, or less - and when it does, don't expect anyone to speak up for you.
It's funny, when I read the article about the protest at the book signing I immediately wondered why would they pick that event. It seemed like a rather low key event. But I have been programmed to smell a rat in every news item I read today, from the left or the right. The actual actions were relatively modest, a drink thrown at Steve Forbes and cackling lefties spewing generic lefty sayings. But now this droll event has been lifted to a "CALL TO ACTION" for conservatives! Yesssir! Step right up and buy your newest controversial book and get pissed at lefties again. I am probably wrong but perhaps not?
I suspect restauranteur Gopnik has a different motive, Don. It would be interesting to see how many of her employees are here legally.
Smug as a Prius owner. in W.Va. ,classic Surber and the reason I subsribed.There is no way to reason with closed minds but hope springs eternal.Per yesterdays column merging into todays the most intolerant are those who declare we must be tolerant of their abberations.
