Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Radical libruls have taken over our classrooms, our judiciaries, and the media. But they can’t take over my column! Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the loony, bigoted, and hateful behavior of the increasingly unhinged left wing. Starting with number five:

5. Gov. Nathan Deal

Georgia governor Nathan Deal vetoed the religious liberty bill that would have protected the God-given freedoms of Peach Staters from the encroachments of the radical LGBT agenda.

Deal makes the insulting gesture of bolstering his spaghetti-spined move by invoking Christians’ own principles against them, saying in his remarks that Christians “have a belief in forgiveness and that we do not have to discriminate unduly against anyone on the basis of our own religious beliefs.”

He continued: “We are not jeopardized, in my opinion, by those who believe differently from us. We are not, in my opinion, put in jeopardy by virtue of those who might hold different beliefs or who may not even agree with what our Supreme Court said the law of the land is on the issue of same-sex marriage. I do not feel threatened by the fact that people who might choose same-sex marriages pursue that route.”

Of course, earnest Christian faith had nothing to do with Deal’s decision. This is merely a craven capitulation from a RINO gov, who is apparently more interested in catering to Hollywood and corporate interests than respecting the men and women who actually work and live in his state. AJC.com reported:

Executives from dozens of big-name companies, including Disney, Apple, Time Warner, Intel and Salesforce, called on the governor to veto the bill. The NFL warned it could risk Atlanta’s bid for the Super Bowl and the NCAA hinted it could influence the state’s ability to host championship games. And Deal’s office said two economic development prospects have already abandoned Georgia because of the legislation.

Thankfully, in this country, our rights do not come by “executives from big-name companies” or the NFL — they come from God. Lawmakers who recognize this simple fact have vowed to take up the crusade against the insidious gaystapo goons in the next session.

Next: Chris Matthews

4. Chris Matthews

The angriest man on MSNBC goaded Donald Trump into making some less-than-well-chosen remarks about abortion (saying that there should be “some punishment” for women who seek abortion — comments he quickly walked back). But of course the LSM went wild with it. Congratulations, Chris.

It wasn’t enough that he relentlessly pummeled Trump with speciously framed questions, provoking him into saying something unconsidered. Matthews also had the temerity to refer to the pro-life position as fascistic.

The revealing slip occurred after Trump adroitly turned the tables on Matthews, challenging him to square his religion with his vocal support for baby murdering.

“I think it’s a woman’s choice,” Matthews said.

“So you’re against the teachings of your church?” Trump fired back.

“I have a view, and a moral view,” said Matthews. “But I believe we live in a free country, and I don’t want to live in a country so fascistic that it can stop a person from making that decision.”

It has, of course, become common to see comparisons drawn between unpopular (conservative) views and the “f-word” — at least in Matthew’s echelon of champaign-popping, chai-sipping, Prius-driving liberal media twitheads. Still.

Next: “Gun shop owner” who refuses to sell guns 

3. Anti-Gun Guy Who Owns a Gun Shop

In the wise words of a t-shirt once sold by Marco Rubio’s campaign: “The 2nd Amendment is not a suggestion. It is a right.”

Although it looks like one gun shop owner didn’t get the memo, unilaterally deciding that it was his responsibility and privilege to trample another man’s constitutional right to bear arms.

Read the disgusting story in full here. The liberal media can try to spin it all they want (“Potential mass shooting averted”? Could there be a bigger nothing burger?) but the facts are plain: a man was deprived of his lawful right to bear arms because a GRAINO (Guns Rights Advocate In Name Only) didn’t like the look in a man’s eyes. Seriously.

“There was something about him. I don’t know. You really can’t explain it. He was going to do something. He was going to do something,” the Ohio gun shop owner told CBS News.

I’ll tell you want you “can’t really explain,” sir. Why you felt it was your right to get keep a gun out of the hands of a drug-dependent college dropout with a history of assault and mental illness. That’s not what the Founders wanted.

Hat tip LawNewz

Next: Cokie Roberts

2. Cokie Roberts

Mere weeks after she blamed Donald Trump for children starting fights in the playground, NPR’s Cokie Roberts is mocking the FBI for doing their job.

Responding to a Washington Post report that the agency had tasked 147 agents with uncovering Hillary Clinton’s email malfeasance, a chuckling Roberts said: “You know, what I took out of that story, a big story about the FBI and all of that, was that 147 FBI agents are focused on this? I mean, don’t they have other problems?” She added: “There’s no crime in the country they should be worrying about?”

Cokie might has well be wearing a t-shirts that says “Shill” written in Hillvetica.

Next: Who else? 

1. Hillary Clinton

What’s left to say about the soon-to-be-indicted (any day now!) Democratic frontrunner?

Other than that she’s a cheat, hypocrite, fraud, and phony, who lies to Americans, plays fast and loose with government secrets, and probably stiffs delivery boys on the tip?

If this week’s pratfall by Susan Sarandon is any indication, the former secretary, and likely avatar of the anti-Christ, will fail to net the support of ultra-libs, not to mention the pot-puffing Millennial set, all of whom are fleeing her campaign for Chairman Bernie.

And so the eternal burning garbage fire that is the Democratic Party continues to blaze. Keep at it, libtards!

Happy April Fools Day!
