On today’s episode of The Daily Daily Caller Podcast, we engage in a bit of schadenfreude as Joy Reid faces growing criticism over old blog posts now deemed homophobic by her fellow liberals.
She tried denying she’d written them, claiming they’d been hacked, but the company that runs the Wayback Machine says their scans haven’t been altered. That means they weren’t hacked.
Now Reid is having an award she was set to receive next month from a gay rights group yanked because of her writings. It seems she’s being held to the same standards she and her progressive friends, and the entire MSNBC network, have been holding other to for years. She’s getting a big, fat dose of her own medicine.
Another insane court decision on DACA was handed down yesterday, this one saying not only can’t President Trump end the program, but it must accept new enrollees. So people who were too lazy or scared to sign up for it before it expired will now be granted the opportunity to enroll because the law no longer matters. A federal judge decreed an executive order can’t be undone by executive order without the new president giving what that judge determined to be a good enough reason. It is insane.
Here’s today’s opinion by Judge Bates explaining why the Trump decision cancelling DACA last September can’t stand without a coherent account of what justified that cancellation: the account Trump gave, Bates rightly held, made no sense. https://t.co/dkBIiYgS31

Kanye West — hero of free thought? It seems unlikely, but it’s true … at least for now. Who knows if he’s punking everyone or not. But for now there is no one driving the left crazier than West for his support of the idea that people should be free to think and believe what they want, and shouldn’t be destroyed because they aren’t down-the-line liberals. Naturally, liberals are attacking West because freedom of thought is the opposite of what they stand for now.
new ideas will no longer be condemned by the masses. We are on the frontier of massive change. Starting from breaking out of our mental prisons.
