Ah, the Left…

You know, it’s funny…without them being as radical and loony as they are, FreedomWire wouldn’t exist – so there’s a part of me that is almost grateful for their craziness.

Being beholden to them in that way…

I’ve actually had to study them.

Leftists are peculiar little creatures – they seem to be chock-full of contradicting ideas and inconsistencies.

They hate capitalism, but tweet out that hatred using their iPhone, sipping on a latte from Starbucks while driving their electric car.

They hate that Trump is tough on immigration…

But then have ZERO problem with Obama being the president that put “kids in cages” in the first place.

It’s amazing…

And these contradictions and inconsistencies were put on display recently in Citrus County, Florida.

The BIG Story Of This Little Place

What happened?

Well, a librarian made a small request…

He wants to buy (remember this word) his members a digital subscription to The New York Times – you know, the periodical that called ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi an “austere religious historian”…the paper that claims to be impartial but has been proven to have a Leftist bias time and time again…

Yeah…that New York Times

The Citrus County Board of Commissioners said “no”.

Of course, what the Left is focusing on is PART of the story…

One of the commissioners, Scott Carnahan, said some things that triggered Liberals around the country when he said, “Fake news, OK, I agree with President Trump and I don’t want The New York Times in this county.”

It’s good to see that some people are not afraid to let their support for Trump be known. “I don’t agree with it, I don’t like them,” he added. “It’s fake news and I’m voting no.”

And that was that.

However, the Left is SCREAMING about censorship and how this is the county BANNING the New York Times.

It’s not…

This, ladies and gentleman, is capitalism at its finest.

Because here’s the bottom line and the REAL issue that the Left doesn’t want to talk about: the digital subscription to the NYT costs more than your father’s newspaper did.

Over the next three years, the subscription would cost TINY Citrus County taxpayers over $8,000!

Money Talks – Bulls**t Walks

EIGHT GRAND for three years of biased news content?

That’s a POOR use of funds. The commissioners know this and the librarian who asked for the subscription knows this…

But the Left doesn’t want to accept the fact the county doesn’t want to pay $8K for a newspaper subscription – so they concoct some kind of authoritarian narrative that just isn’t true.

While some of the commission may not agree with the Leftist rhetoric that comes from the writers (you can’t call them journalists) at the New York Times…

The fact remains that an $8,000 bill for three years of content that only SOME people will access is a waste of money.

That doesn’t mean the library won’t still be getting their PRINT copy of the New York Times…

They’re just not going to pay EXTRA to be able to access their website.

You know what else the Citrus County commission isn’t paying for?

A subscription to Playboy Magazine.

But you don’t hear the Leftists speaking out against that “ban”, do you?

It’s because it’s NOT a ban…

It’s a simple economic decision. That’s it and that’s all.

And that may be the REAL problem, as there aren’t a lot of Leftists that can seem to make good economic decisions. After all, these are the same people that want to get rid hamburgers and plane travel.

Ridiculous…
