Se Mr Soros ed i liberals democratici fossero vissuti nel ‘500, le cronache ci avrebbero tramandato frasi infuocate di questo tipo.
«Appaltata la volta della Sistina a Messer Michelangiolo e la Stanza della Signatura a Messer Raffaello. Società civile e femministe protestano vivamente per questa ennesima scelta maschilista che spregia il gender femminile.
Discriminate le pittrici femmine, di gran lunga migliori di questo Michelangelo e di quel Raffaello, che saranno dimenticati dalla storia. Cappella Sistina in quota rosa! Stanza della Signatura ai gay!»
«Orripilante delitto perpetrato da Messer Raffaello, esecrabile omofobo. Sexual harassment nei confronti della Fornarina, alla quale palpeggiava le terga con sua visibile soddisfazione, per poi dipingerla in abiti discinti. Il popolo di Roma insorge contro questo ultimo orripilante abuso. Domani corteo lgbt di protesta.»
«Manifestazione di protesta contro Messer Michelangiolo, che persiste a voler affrescare esseri di gender maschile nudi, simboli della fallocrazia imperante.»
«Al Teatrino della Dogana, detto anche di Baldracca dal nome del quartiere, spettacolo di arte avanzata di Flaminio Scala ed Isabella Andreini: ‘Le femmine conquisteranno l’universo.’. Seguirà dibattito politico moderato da Müezzinzade Alì, Mehmet Shoraq, Uluč Alì e Murad Dragut ‘a Lepanto i mussulmani hanno lasciato vincere i crociati per amor di pace‘.»

Ma Mr Soros ed i liberals democratici non vissero nel cinquecento, per cui si può tranquillamente vivere ignorando chi mai fosse Artemisia Gentileschi, i cui dipinti non richiamano certo grandi folle.
Tornando ai tempi odierni, si sono tenute in Montana le elezioni per il rinnovo di un seggio al Congresso.
Tutti i media di Mr Soros e dei liberals democratici si erano scatenati contro il candidato repubblicano: la macchina del fango aveva lavorato a pieno regime, scaricando ogni tipologia di sterco su Mr Greg Gianforte, reo di militare nel partito del liberticida Mr Trump, più di una inenarrabile serie di tutto ciò che i liberals democratici considerano reati irredimibili.
L’ultimo, quello di aver reagito alle pesanti provocazioni di un giornalista socialista.
«Il popolo del Montana unito e compatto è sdegnato per la candidatura di Mr Greg Gianforte».
Ed invece il “popolo del Montana” di quanto pensano i liberals democratici se ne è fatto un baffo a torciglione, uno di qua e l’altro di là:
«With about 96% of areas reporting, he has secured 51% of the vote. His Democratic rival Rob Quist has 43%.»
Otto urenti punti percentuali di distacco. Ed hanno votato un pro-life.
«Gianforte has been supportive of Trump’s travel ban and health care reform, and backed the president’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey»
«Thursday’s election leaves Democrats without a win in special elections since November, with Republicans having won contests in Louisiana, Kansas and now Montana»
I liberals democratici affermavano a gran voce di essere i veri rappresentanti del popolo, ma quando si è andati a votare in Louisiana, Kansas e Montana gli Elettori hanno dato loro il benservito. Già: la gente ha votato il partito di Mr Trump.
«Democrat Rob Quist had hoped to turn the broad unpopularity of President Donald Trump into a win for national Democrats at the ballot box.»
Bene quanto sia impopolare il Presidente Trump lo hanno detto le urne: la “broad unpopularity” sarebbe soltanto un aspetto del delirio psichiatrico dei liberals democratici.
Il mese entrante si terranno elezioni suppletive in California, Georgia and South Carolina, tutte roccaforti democratiche. Nessuno si straccerà le vesti se in quegli stati usciranno candidati democratici,
Ma mica è detto che escano.
Si mormora infatti che il malefico Mr Putin sta facendo un porta a porta a favore dei candidati repubblicani.
In molte nazioni il nazionalsocialismo ed il comunismo sono banditi per legge. Sarebbe raccomandabile mettere fuori legge anche i liberals democratici.
→ Bbc. 2017-05-26. Gianforte wins Montana vote despite ‘body slam’ charge
US Republican Greg Gianforte has won a special congressional election in Montana, just hours after he was charged with assaulting a UK reporter.
With about 96% of areas reporting, he has secured 51% of the vote. His Democratic rival Rob Quist has 43%.
Mr Gianforte has apologised for the incident in which he is accused of “body slamming” Ben Jacobs who works for the UK’s Guardian newspaper.
In a victory speech he said he had “learned a lesson” and was “sorry”.
A Fox News journalist who saw Wednesday’s incident said Mr Gianforte had “grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground” after the reporter persisted in trying to question him.
Mr Gianforte had previously said Mr Jacobs had grabbed his wrist, pulling them both to the ground.
“When you make a mistake you have to own up to it, that’s the Montana way,” he said, after initial laughter among his supporters as he began to speak about the incident.
“Last night I made a mistake, I took an action that I can’t take back.
“I am not proud of what happened, I should not have responded in the way that I did, and I’m sorry,” he said.
“I should not have treated that reporter that way, and for that I’m sorry Mr Ben Jacobs,” he added.
He has been charged with misdemeanour assault, for which the maximum penalty is a $500 (£385) fine and a six-month jail term.
Mr Gianforte, a multimillionaire technology executive and Christian conservative, beat Mr Quist, a banjo-playing folk singer, to fill an empty seat in the House of Representatives.
Mr Quist said he was “sure that Montanans will hold Mr Gianforte accountable.”
The vacancy in Montana arose after President Donald Trump appointed the previous holder of the seat, Ryan Zinke, as interior secretary.
Three of the state’s largest newspapers withdrew their endorsements of Mr Gianforte after the violent incident on the eve of the vote.
The state’s Democratic governor, Steve Bullock, described it as “a wake-up call to all Montanans and Americans”.
“It is unsettling on many levels that Greg Gianforte physically assaulted a journalist and then lied, refusing to take responsibility for his actions,” he said in a statement.
More than a third of the votes were cast by mail before it took place, an electoral official told Reuters.
Republicans have held the state’s single seat in the House for two decades.
The party has, in general, been downplaying the case and casting it as an errant mistake, BBC North America reporter Anthony Zurcher says.
But critics are drawing the line between the rhetoric of President Trump – in which he has dubbed certain media outlets as “enemies of the American people” – and the incident, our correspondent adds.
→ Cnn. 2017-05-26. Republican Greg Gianforte wins Montana special election, CNN projects
Bozeman, Montana (CNN) Republican Greg Gianforte has won the special election for Montana’s open US House seat, CNN projects, defeating Democrat Rob Quist and capping off a whirlwind final 36 hours of the campaign that saw Gianforte being charged for allegedly assaulting a reporter.
In his acceptance speech, Gianforte apologized by name to Ben Jacobs, the Guardian reporter who accused the Republican of “body-slamming” him and breaking his glasses.
“When you make a mistake, you have to own up to it,” Gianforte told his supporters at his Election Night rally in Bozeman. “That’s the Montana way.”
Saying he was “not proud” of his behavior, he added, “I should not have responded the way I did, for that I’m sorry. I should not have treated that reporter that way, and for that I’m sorry, Mr. Ben Jacobs.”
Members of the supportive crowd shouted, “You’re forgiven.”
With 87% of precincts reporting, Gianforte had 181,255 votes — or 50.6% of the vote, compared to Quist who has 156,130 votes, 43.6% of the vote, according to Edison Research.
→ Abc. 2017-05-26. Greg Gianforte wins Montana special election a day after being charged with assault
Just 24 hours after being charged with assault for allegedly body-slamming a reporter in his Bozeman campaign office, Republican Greg Gianforte has won the special election for the U.S. House seat in Montana, The Associated Press has projected.
The race was thrust into the national spotlight in dramatic fashion on Wednesday night after Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs described being “body-slammed” by the GOP candidate, and a Fox News crew who witnessed the incident said the former technology and software executive “grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him.”
“I’m sick and tired of you guys,” Gianforte said in audio of the event released by The Guardian. Jacobs told “Good Morning America” Thursday morning, “I went from being vertical one moment to being horizontal the next.”
Nearly 70 percent of votes in Montana were cast early — before the alleged assault took place.
Speaking to supporters in Bozeman late Thursday night after his win had been called, Gianforte apologized for his actions.
“When you make a mistake you have to own up to it, that’s the Montana way,” Gianforte said. “Last night I made a mistake… That’s not the person I am and it’s not the way I’ll lead in this state.”
“Rest assured, our work is just beginning, but it does begin with me taking responsibility for my own actions,” he added. “You deserve a congressman who stays out of the limelight and just gets the job done.”
Gianforte’s apology contradicts the statement his campaign released Wednesday evening blaming the incident on “aggressive behavior from a liberal journalist.”
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released a statement following Gianforte’s victory approving of his decision to apologize.
“Congressman-elect Greg Gianforte was right to apologize for his actions in Wednesday’s incident,” McDaniel said. “Tonight’s apology was a good first step toward redemption and I hope Gianforte continues to work toward righting his wrong.”
Democrat Rob Quist had hoped to turn the broad unpopularity of President Donald Trump into a win for national Democrats at the ballot box.
Trump won the state by more than 20 percentage points in November’s election, though the state re-elected its incumbent Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock by a narrow margin on the same day.
The U.S. House seat became vacant after Trump tapped Republican Congressman Ryan Zinke to become Secretary of the Interior.
The day after the alleged assault, House Speaker Paul Ryan condemned Gianforte’s behavior and called for him to apologize, but didn’t say he should withdraw from the race.
“There is no time where a physical altercation should occur with the press or just between human beings,” he told reporters. “So, that is wrong and it should not have happened.”
Three Montana newspapers who had previously endorsed the candidate withdrew their endorsement on Wednesday night, but President Donald Trump, who had endorsed Gianforte via a robocall, did not have a comment Thursday on the alleged assault.
Gianforte has been supportive of Trump’s travel ban and health care reform, and backed the president’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey.
Before running for the congressional seat, Gianforte unsuccessfully ran for Governor of Montana in 2016. Before that, he was a technology and software company executive — his assets range between $96 and $328 million, according to the Associated Press.
Thursday’s election leaves Democrats without a win in special elections since November, with Republicans having won contests in Louisiana, Kansas and now Montana. But they’ll have more chances next month, as candidates battle for House seats in three special elections in California, Georgia and South Carolina.
