It’s become something of a tradition for LI authors to post a list of their favorite posts for the year (you can read my 2016 list here and my 2017 list here), so it’s that time of year again, and I have some favorites to share with you all.

#5 #WalkAway Movement Gains Steam As Free-thinkers Reject The Left

What happens when a movie-star-gorgeous gay hairdresser goes from SJW-zombified “woke” leftist to a conservative on “a mission to #RedPill humanity”?  Why, the #WalkAway movement, of course.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2018/06/walkaway-movement-gains-steam-as-free-thinkers-reject-the-left/And yes, it’s real.

It’s worth noting that this is the type of movement that the now-openly-socialist Democrats cannot abide and work very hard to discredit (as they did with Candace Owens’ #Blexit).

#4 McCain Regrets Choosing Sarah Palin As His Running Mate

I was incensed upon hearing this because it seemed clear to me that his nomination of Palin as his VP breathed new life into his dying (already dead?) presidential campaign.  His petty expression of regret at selecting her coupled with his apparent belief that a McCain-Joe Lieberman (D/I-CT) ticket would have beat Obama in ’08 was, quite frankly, bizarre.  I had to respond.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2018/05/mccain-regrets-choosing-sarah-palin-as-his-running-mate/My sense of his pettiness was reinforced when we were informed that Palin, his former running mate and staunch supporter even after their 2008 loss, was explicitly not invited to his funeral.

#3  Burger King Goes SJW In Fight Against Nonexistent “Pink Tax”

As we survey the division, hate, and fear that seems to have pervaded our nation, we need to take a closer look at our near communities.  Are we really all seething in rage and hatred towards our fellow Americans when those fellow Americans are our neighbors and respected members of our communities?  Probably not, but that’s what we’re supposed to internalize.  No matter who you are, everyone is the “enemy” . . . except the Democrats.

The benevolent Democrats are so loving and accepting of you that they want you to be isolated from all other Americans, they want you to live in an atmosphere of constant fear and resentment, and they want you beholden to them in every conceivable way.  How can a woman/minority/LGBT alphabet soup person possibly live a fulfilling life without Democrats telling them they are socio-cultural economic and political pariahs, perpetual victims who must be “protected”?

This lie permeates our culture . . . extending even to Burger King ads.  Women, we are informed, are too stupid to assess the relative worth of a “pink” and “blue” product and must be protected from our own ignorance.

This is the basic gospel of the left:  you are a stupid stupid person who must be protected from yourself by the all-knowing state who has only your best interests at heart . . . .  Shhh, don’t worry if your best interests don’t mesh with or even directly undermine the best interests of other favored groups because intersectionality.

#2  Trump Asks The $64,000 Question: Why Didn’t Obama Do Anything About Russia?

We keep hearing about Trump-Russia collusion and the “stolen” 2016 election, but who was sitting in the White House throughout the 2016 election season, a season that stretched back to at least 2015?  Oh, right, Obama.

#1  Twitter: No, We’re Not Shadow Banning The Conservatives We’ve Shadow-banned

This is the story that will dominate 2019: Big Tech/Social Media and its relentless attack on conservatives.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2018/07/twitter-no-were-not-shadow-banning-the-conservatives-weve-shadow-banned/It may have started with controversial fringe figure Alex Jones, but as the prof wisely noted, it has not stopped there.  The great conservative deplatforming purge is just starting, and it won’t end with conservatives and the right.

Honorable Mention Ben of Ben and Jerry’s Asks Twitter For Progressive Ice Cream Names, Hilarity Ensues

Ben, of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream fame and fortune, coordinated a “name the ice cream for seven up and coming progressives” effort with MoveOn.org and got far more than he bargained for as helpful conservatives responded with amazingly insightful, amusing, and snarky progressive ice cream names.   LI readers added some great choices to the list, so be sure to check out the comments.
