When nations, companies or movements throw vengeful tantrums

Every grownup knows what a temper tantrum looks like. The kid didn’t get his way. It’s time to make the grownups pay – by causing obstacles, by screeching about anything and everything, by hitting, and so forth. The kid might still not win on the immediate issue X. But who knows, the grownups might just try to mollify him on another issue Y. It’s part revenge, part blackmail.

We can expect a lot of tantrums now over Brexit. Brexit doesn’t change much, “in the now”. First, it hasn’t even happened. Second, if and when it happens, it need not affect the existing terms of European trade, finance or hardly anything other than British border control. All that it will take to keep the existing trade going is a few new pieces of paper with a few new signatures.

No, Brexit is more of a matter for the future. Assuming it happens, it will mean that the UK’s -future course- is to avoid a full-on political merger with the rest of Europe; avoid the destruction of its borders and sovereignty; etc.

And, to the various socialist cronies of Europe, that’s unforgivable. And for years, vast problems (unrelated to Brexit) have been piling up for them. And for years, they’ve tried to not admit the full extent of their problems. Problems which they have caused and/or failed to deal with.

Guess what? Now that they didn’t get their way on Brexit, they’re going to blame everything on Brexit. Even though Brexit is mostly unrelated.

It’s as if termites have eaten away at your home for years. Your home is ready to crash. You have failed to deal with it. Now your partner insists that you stay home on Saturday night and don’t go to that casino. Guess what? Your plan is to light a little fire to help your termite-eaten home crash faster; and when the cops arrive, you’ll blame your partner for everything. Now that’s a tantrum.

It’s already begun. Earlier we had the credit downgrades on the UK. It’s pure payback, of course. Nothing fundamental has changed about the UK’s finances. The ratings companies became political, some years ago. Governments can and will torture the ratings companies; therefore, they do the bidding of governments. The downgrades then add to market turmoil. In other words: Kid throws tantrum.

Another example is, crashing Italian banks that demand massive new bailouts. European banks’ finances have been rotten for years. Their stocks were inevitably going to crash at some point, when the world admitted the reality. But guess what? Brexit! So give us new bailouts!

It’s the new Climate Change, or maybe the new Salted Caramel. Everything this year is going to be Brexit. Decaying art? Brexit! Venezuelan collapse? Brexit! Fukushima radiation levels? Brexit! Solar flares? Brexit! U.S. recession? Personal negativity? Brexit!

Why not? The world – or at least, the media-socialist-crony world – hates UK Independence (and border control) that much. Everyone will agree to join the fun and not be honest about the longstanding, real causes of a great many problems.

Brexit: passed by the working classes?

Posted by Jeff (ILoveCapitalism) at 9:31 am - June 27, 2016.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy,Politics abroad

It seems so.

As Britain voted to leave the European Union last week, the leader of the UK Independence Party, Nigel Farage said, “The election was won in my view in the Midlands and the North and it was the old Labour vote that came to us…” This morning, Deutsche Bank’s Jim Reid puts some numbers on it:

In terms of socio-economic groups, 57% of ABs (upper/middle class – professional/managers etc) voted remain, 49% of C1s (lower middle class – supervisory/clerical or junior management/administrative), 36% of C2s (skilled working class) and 36% of DEs (Ds – semi & unskilled manual workers; Es – casual/lowest grade worker or state pensioner).

By implication, the ones who didn’t vote for Remain, voted for Leave. In other words, over 60% of rank-and-file British workers voted for the Leave campaign. (Note: ZH provides no link to the original. If you have a link to the original, please post it in the comments.)

We could take this interesting tidbit, if it’s true, in any number of directions.

  • Among workers, is this a rise of protectionism? Or is it a rise of appropriate national pride and common sense?
  • Is the recent day or two of market turmoil really just the ruling classes throwing a temper tantrum?
  • What should be made of all these leftists saying that Brexit passed because of old people, conservatives and racists? Are left-wingers name-calling their own base? The Party apparatchiks are mad at their base? Is the spat temporary, or something deeper?

UPDATE: Can there be any doubt that the EU hates democratic accountability? (Being accountable to the People it presumes to govern) One of its various Presidents, Martin Schultz, has now said:

“The British have violated the rules. It is not the EU philosophy that the crowd can decide its fate”.

I saw that coming.

They misspelled “Muslim.”

Marchers at NYC’s gay pride parade. I guess no one has broken the news to them that Omar Mateen was a Democrat.

Addendum: Hillary Clinton showed up long enough for a photo-op and then dipset.

#BlackLivesMatter Pulls Out of Gay Pride Parade

Because Black people who love thugs and hate cops are such a critical element of the gay community, organizers of the San Francisco Gay Pride (Seriously, do we still need these hopelessly dated anachronisms?) invited the cop-hating, thug-loving group #BlackLivesMatter to not only participate in their pride parade but to serve as Grand Marshals.

In light of recent events, the organizers went on to add more security to the event in case another Muslim Democrat Terrorist decided to use a large gathering of gay people for target practice. (Killing gays being totes OK in Mohammedanism.) This made the #BlackLivesMatter activists angry… angrier… and so they quit because they claim … I am not making this up… that the police were going to shoot them or something.

The groups said in a statement that law enforcement creates unsafe conditions in queer communities of color. In particular, they cited what they described as the San Francisco Police Department’s “recent track record of racist scandal and killings of people of color.”

“As queer people of color, we are disproportionately targeted by both vigilante and police violence. We know first hand that increasing the police presence at Pride does not increase safety for all people.”

The withdrawal, announced at a press conference Friday, was joined by St. James Infirmary, a group that provides medical and social services to sex workers, and TGI Justice Project, an advocacy group for transsexual, intersex and gender nonconformist people in jails and prisons.

The organizers of the Gay Pride Fest were really looking forward to experiencing a large black presence. It must have been painful when those black guys pulled out.

HomoCon Not Warmly Received by HuffPo Comment Drones

Filed under: Gay Conservatives (Homocons)

Some fella wrote an “Hello, I’m Gay and Conservative” article for the left-wing Huffington Post Writer-Screwing website.  He gives the Blogfather a shoutout, which is nice. but the article itself is pretty much nothing that hasn’t been said here before. It’s interesting that one of his main points is that leftists can only think in terms of stereotypes and cliches, and he can’t have a dialogue with them because they are uninterested in hearing any opinion that isn’t in lockstep with their ideology. The comments from the HuffPo’s “tolerant and enlightened” lefty readership prove him right.

My experience with gay republicans are that they were not only raised in Christian households but politically charged ones. They were taught early on that being Christian means you are Republican and to go against Republican idealogy means you are going against God. I was like this when I was younger and struggled with deep internalized homophobia. Thankfully I got help and grew in my idea of God. You have to have some form of dislike for yourself and for people like you to support ideology that goes against you. [Yeah, the old “self-hating” cliche. They are *still* using that.]

Speaking of lame, tiresome cliches.

You’re trying to apologize for a politics very determinedly associated with hatred and oppression of gay people. Being gay might not define you – but supporting and enabling anti-gay bigots is MERELY pathetic. That would be why the “community” is uninterested in your voice – you’re trying to sell National Socialism to Jews.

BTW, did you know every Republican candidate has called for the extermination of gays?

Why would any gay person / American attach themselves to a party that had eighteen (?) presidential candidates align themselves with organizations that not only openly called for the deaths of gays but insist that Jews should not receive any rights under our constitution. 
We won’t get into what they think of Women, Blacks, Hispanics, etc, etc. 

Hey, it was said by a leftist homosexual ideologue on Huffington Post, so it must be true, right?

About half the comments to the article have been supportive; but they all came from conservatives.

“Not a Bad First Day of Freedom”

Posted by V the K at 5:00 pm - June 25, 2016.
Filed under: Politics abroad

Some of us thought the media’s apocalyptic coverage of the BREXIT vote was overblown.

I believe the last one may have been tongue-in-cheek.

But did you see *any* media outlet discuss the upside for Britons of leaving political union with Europe. I did not, and apparently there weren’t many covering that angle.

A politician of the UKIP presents an alternative view:

“A Prime Minister resigned. The pound plummeted. The FTSE 100 lost significant ground.

“But then the pound rallied past February levels. And the FTSE closed on a weekly high: 2.4 per cent up on last Friday, it’s best performance in four months.

“President Obama decided we wouldn’t be at the back of the queue after all and that our special relationship was still strong.

“The French President confirmed the Le Touquet agreement would stay in place.

“The President of the European Commission stated Brexit negations would be “orderly” and stressed the UK would continue to be a close partner of the EU.

“A big bank denied reports it would shift staff overseas. The CBI, vehemently anti-Brexit during the referendum campaign, stated British business was resilient and would adapt.

“Several countries outside the EU stated they wished to begin bilateral talks with the UK immediately.

“If this was the predicted apocalypse, well, it was a very British one. It was all over by teatime. Not a bad first day of freedom.”

As I checked the markets on Friday, there seemed to be nothing really happening aside from bankers throwing a temper-tantrum. As if bankers who have no qualms about dealing with the butchers of Beijing and Tehran are suddenly going to have trouble doing business with Englishmen.

 

Why the English Rejected European Rule

Posted by V the K at 9:36 am - June 25, 2016.
Filed under: Politics abroad

The BBC explains why it thinks BREXIT won. Let me save you the trouble: Remain ran an ineffective campaign and too many old farts voted out of nostalgia. And that’s actually a step up (or perhaps a refined version) of the “racism and xenophobia” excuse most of the left has embraced as the reason. And a very few sources have noted that British taxpayers have been paying £13 billion a year for the privilege of belonging to the EU and thinking maybe that money could be better spent to shore up their decrepit system of bureaucratized health care. The one thing that is almost never discussed is how undemocratic and dysfunctional the European Union actually is.

And even if the EU were a transparent and well-functioning democratic institution, there would be occasions (probably a lot of them) when the EU… through a transparent democratic process… would simply enact policies that favored the interests of Portuguese or Romanians over Britons. Germans were unhappy to be taxed to bail Greece, and even less happy to accept hundreds of thousands of “refugees,” but the EU demanded it as the cost of unity.

The media are acting as if the British have gone nutzoid and embraced BREXIT because they hate those stinky brown foreign people so much that they will sabotage their own economy just to send a message. The flaws of the EU are never discussed because the EU is pretty much the model for Progressive Transnational Government.

The ultimate goal of the Progressive Left is a borderless world where national identities have been brushed aside. They envision something like a Global version of the EU as the Government of this one-world utopia. There is little difference between an American socialist like Bernie Sanders and a Swedish socialist, a Chinese socialist, a Latin American socialist, a British Labourite, a French socialist… so it’s very easy when these types get together to imagine a borderless world governed by they themselves. And they also don’t see why anyone would ever disagree with their policies because they are so self-evidently right. But as BREXIT showed when the people they want to rule over are actually allowed to vote, they don’t want it.

The FBI has found no evidence that Omar Mateen was just a misunderstood closeted gay man driven to mass murder by the opposition of conservatives to gay marriage.

The FBI has found no evidence so far to support claims by those who say Mateen had gay lovers or communicated on gay dating apps, several law enforcement officials said.

He claimed the shooting was carried out in allegiance to the militant group Islamic State, as a message to halt U.S. bombing in Iraq and Syria.

Not that the FBI has exactly covered itself in glory in this case, but maybe you guys should consider the possibility that a man who swore allegiance to ISIS, who was raised by an Islamist father, and who has a long well-documented history of hostility toward non-Mohammedans might just have been motivated by a desire to commit an act of terror in the Name of Mohammed against Infidels.

How Does BREXIT Affect Gay People?

Shouldn’t all politics be viewed that way, instead of the “What’s good for my tribe” paradigm that dominates 21st Century political discussion?

 

A new day for Britain

Filed under: Big Government Follies,Obama Incompetence,Politics abroad

Congratulations to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Nothern Ireland for voting to leave the European Union. It seems real because it has prompted Cameron to resign.

The EU began in 1957 as the European Economic Community, originally a free-trade zone for western Europe. And that’s a good thing. Unfortunately, over the decades (and especially after it became the European Union in 1993), the EU devolved into an intensively oppressive bureaucracy that imposes endless, krazy regulations on its member states and, for practical purposes, voids democracy in them.

Britain should gain a brighter economic future from the separation. The “Remain” campaign, of course, tried to claim the opposite. Britain does massive trade with the rest of the EU, and the “Remain” campaign tried to scare voters that the trade will be lost. Which is ridiculous; the EU itself needs its British trade, and the example of Switzerland (not to mention China or the U.S.) proves that independent countries can do massive trade with the EU.

But it’s not just the economics: Separating from the EU (if that is now put into practice) should mean that Britain has regained an important part of its sovereignty and its democracy.

On a personal note: This event is a pleasant surprise for me. Despite the “Leave” campaign’s leading in many British polls, I was sure that the British-EU elites would manipulate the election so that “Remain” had to win. (Manipulate the voters and/or the voting, the counting, etc.)

In other words, I was sure that British democracy was already dead. Today’s news reminds me, in a happy way, that I don’t know everything. Just to put sprinkles on the ice cream, it’s also a well-deserved slap in President Obama’s face.

Thoughts on Brexit

Posted by V the K at 7:46 am - June 24, 2016.
Filed under: Politics abroad

Britain has voted for independence from Eurotopia. I am stunned, I really thought there was no way the ruling class would allow BREXIT to win. Now, will the bankers and political class really allow Britain to leave? We will wait and see.

Also, is this a harbinger of things to come, not just in Europe, but here as well. It’s obvious the cultural and social fissures in the US run deep and we see the cracks all the time. Britons resented the heavy-handed rule from an unaccountable, unelected bureaucracy in Brussels as much as many Americans in the heartland resent being ruled over by heavy-handed, unaccountable, unelected bureaucrats in Washington DC.  Texas does not want to live under New York’s gun laws, nor does Alabama want to live under California’s environmental laws. Sanctuary cities make a mockery of immigration law even as the USA has clearly taken in more people than can be supported economically. As Washington uses Government power to hammer the values of a small cadre of political elites on an increasingly unwilling nation, the cracks grow deeper and more numerous. BlackLivesMatter is one crack, Donald Trump is another. I would not be surprised to see the USA split up in my lifetime.

So, you know, maybe California should show the way now. We know how much you guys hate being attached to “Flyover Country,” and you are obviously far more “progressive” than the rest of us… so maybe a nice Calexit would be good for everybody. California has embraced full-on progressivism, and shouldn’t let the rest of the USA hold you guys back. And you can take Feinstein, Pelosi, and Moonbeam with you.

Syria: the New Lesbian Hot Spot

Posted by V the K at 8:42 am - June 23, 2016.
Filed under: Gays in Other Lands

Civil War is turning Syria into “Orange Is the New Black” on a National Scale. The male dating-age population has been diminished partly by fighting, mostly by men running off to Europe. So, what’s a Syrian woman to do?

The absence of young men in Syria is glaringly obvious to any visitor to its major cities.

But at the same time, the chaos of war has allowed some women the freedom to pursue a lesbian relationship, in a country that – at least technically – bans gay relationships.

For some middle-class women, however, the conflict has even proven a minor liberation. Yara reckons that about 10-20 per cent of her female friends have come out as gay – a statistic which she attributes, at least in part, to the absence of men.

We talk about a popular bar I’d gone to the previous evening to find lesbians dancing openly on the tables; even though homosexuality is technically illegal in Syria, it’s hardly ever prosecuted. ‘I was shocked’, she confesses.

Gays Sign Up to Use the Rights Democrats Want to Take Away From Them

Posted by V the K at 11:14 pm - June 22, 2016.
Filed under: Islamic War on Gays

While House Democrats continued their childish temper tantrum intended to deprive Americans of the right-of-self-defense through secret Government lists without due process, gay folk who are not going to count on the Obama Administration to protect them are arming up and hitting the range. (Wise Choice)

It was a unique offer by the Shiloh Shooting Range in northwest Harris County, just days after the shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. Shiloh offered free gun classes to the LGBT community and hundreds of people responded.

“We learned gun safety,” said Jared Anthony. “We learned that it’s not … it’s a big responsibility. If you do carry, it’s something that you do need to take seriously. You are providing … you’re providing a service to the community really.”

Maybe some gays will wake up and realize that the Democrats would happily disarm them and leave them at the mercy of terrorists.

Did Omar Mateen Act Alone?

Filed under: Islamic War on Gays

This guy spells out things I have been wondering about vis-a-vis how does a single crazed Muslim Democrat gun down 102 people in a dark, noisy nightclub.

How did an untrained novice, with a unfamiliar weapons, under incredibly adverse high stress conditions, achieve reload and accuracy rates, and most importantly a casualty count, that exceeded those of the world’s best competition shooters and special operators?

How did he carry the necessary weapons and ammunition into Pulse Nightclub on a hot Florida summer night without arousing the suspicion of one patron, staff member, or bouncer before firing shots?

Read the whole thing before dismissing it as conspiracy mongering. I can understand why the Obama regime would hide evidence of multiple attackers. For one thing, the “Look at all the people murdered by one man with a single dangerous assault rifle” is useful to the gun control schemes of the Democrats. Also, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security would have to admit there were multiple terrorists running loose that they probably knew about but did nothing,

BTW, Obama’s super-competent FBI and Department of Homeland Security seem to have lost track of the Muslim Democrat Terrorist’s wife. Oopsie!

Professors Investigated for Encouraging Free Thought

Remember when we used to live in America? Good times.

“Specifically there were two topics of debate that triggered them and personally felt like an attack on their identity (GodHatesFags.com: is this harmful? Is this acceptable? Is this Christianity? And Gay Marriage: should it be legal? Is homosexuality immoral as Christians suggest?)”

The student, whose name is redacted and who is referred to as “they” in the report, complained that “other students are required to watch the in-class debate and hear both arguments presented.”

“I do not believe that students should be required to listen to their own rights and personhood debated,” the student wrote. “[This professor] should remove these topics from the list of debate topics. Debating the personhood of an entire minority demographic should not be a classroom exercise, as the classroom should not be an actively hostile space for people with underprivileged identities.”

So, apparently somebody made this. We’re supposed to ignore the fact that this Muslim Democrat cheered for the 9-11-2001 attacks, has a long history of Islamist behavior that includes threatening to murder fellow students because a slice of bacon touched his hamburger, a guy who posted on Facebook “The real Muslims will never accept the filthy ways of the West” and… Oh, yeah, his father is an Islamist that supports the Taliban... and pretend it was all about Teh Ghey. Because ‘The Narrative.’

Omar Mateen was not a closeted gay dude who went to pulse to work out his issues by committing mass murder. The overwhelming evidence is that he was a life-long jihadist who… by the way… called 911 to pledge his loyalty to [omitted] during his mass murder.

Also, he was apparently a Hillary supporter.

The left… and especially the dim-witted gay left… will grasp at any straw to avoid discussing how Obama’s inept and crippled-by-political-correctness FBI let this guy go on three separate occasions.
