I recently remembered that, among other things, I’m still grateful for the Heller decision from 2008. Because as long as it stands, the Left still hasn’t quite reduced America to just another slave-nation.
What are you grateful for?

In Portland, OR – some Ferguson protesters didn’t want their public temper tantrum interrupted by a car trying to get to hospital, to the point that fisticuffs broke out.
Something else left-wingers do that I have no desire to do… browbeat my family with political opinions during holiday celebrations.
Think Progress has a guide on “how to argue with your Evangelical uncle” about marriage equality. Vox is advising you on Bill Cosby, Ferguson, and immigration (you’re for it as much as possible, of course).
Last year, some of Michael Bloomberg’s dollars trickled down to someone who gave you talking points on gun control. Chris Hayes is once again dedicating an hour of his MSNBC show to the cause.
SRSLY WTF is wrong with these people? Ace has a possible answer: Politics is their religion, and being around heretics makes them feel “unsafe.”
They’re anxious because they’re going to a Thanksgiving dinner where they won’t have an Automatic Affirmation Clap Circle applauding their poses and posturings, but instead might be asked things like “Where are you getting that claim from?”
And this produces in them a terrible anxiety — an anxiety disclosed by all these articles in their first paragraphs, which note the anxiety and fear before proposing a way to combat it.
It’s incredible, when you think about it — they go through the whole year believing in their progressive catechisms zealously but only bother to ask Why do we believe this progressive religious nonsense again? one single day of the year, the one single day of the year where they fear they might be questioned about their religious beliefs.
I’ve never played it or heard of it, until I just caught this on Breitbart (via Bruce’s Twitter stream).
I’m Gay and ‘Ass Hunters’ is One of the Funniest Games I’ve Ever Played
by Milo Yiannopoulos
The outrage bell is tolling this week over Ass Hunters, a game in which you play a safari hunter who shoots homosexuals with a shotgun, trying to avoid getting molested by them…The game is as hilariously silly as it sounds.
…the moral police on both sides of the political fence are up in arms…[including] the left, of course, which is screaming blue bloody murder about the supposed homophobic incitements to violence and hatred…
That’s why Google was yesterday forced to remove a mobile version of the game, which has been floating around on the web for years, from its Play Store. All of which leaves me a bit mystified as to what possible harm this ridiculously daft, cartoonish nonsense could possibly to do society.
…both camps have completely missed the joke…It’s actually a very funny satire…
Read the whole thing.
It came out in the George Snuffelupagus interview with Darren Wilson that the wrongfully accused police officer and his wife are expecting a baby. This revelation unleashed a torrent of hate and threats from the tolerant left.
I don’t get these people; there is nothing in them I can relate to. Much as despise Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Dan Savage et. al.; there is nothing in me that wishes suffering upon them. Nor would I take any joy in it. I am not made that way, and I don’t get people who do. I also don’t understand how people can hate Darren Wilson for defending himself from a thug, but adore Che Guevara for being a sociopath and mass murderer.
There is absolutely no truth to the Democrat/Media promoted narrative that Mike Brown was an innocent black schoolboy gunned down by a racist cop for jaywalking. Yet that is what people have decided. I think it’s because it gives them a way to justify the hate and ugliness that has always lived inside of them.
And the political and media class have decided that feeding that wolf is somehow in the best interests of their overall agenda. Take, for example, Rachel Maddow’s body double Chris Hayes on MSDNC, who found something romantic and beautiful in people being burned out of their livelihoods by rampaging thugs.
“Cameras right now are going to show things burning, and things are burning here in Ferguson tonight,” he said. “They’re not going to show thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of people in metro St. Louis and I think around the country who are just burning up inside with a feeling of impotent rage, of alienation and of anguish and disappointment and injustice.”
I also note that the New York Times published Darren Wilson’s home address; knowing full well that violent radicals are calling for his murder.
First off, we here at GayPatriot are in favor of legal immigrants and controlled, legal immigration from other countries. We simply oppose *illegal* immigration because of the importance of border security in the age of terrorism; and because it’s illegal. The people who have done it began their American journey by consciously breaking America’s laws.
Any of the first three points above – and certainly, all of the first three together – are violations of the President’s oath of office and grounds for impeachment. But let’s face it: as V has suggested, impeachment will never happen.
I blame the media because this is what you get, when a biased media covers for an egotistical President relentlessly: Hubris. Lawlessness. Government that is willfully, impeachably unconstitutional. With no accountability.
But speaking of the media, I must give some credit where it’s due. In the past, I’ve often noted that Jay Carney was Obama’s paid liar, and he probably still is, on some level. But even he admits that Obama is “literally” doing what he promised not to do. Also, credit the Washington Post for noticing how Obama’s pretense of innocence happens to be a lie.
So, what do you think Congressional Republicans will do with the illegal-immigration issue, from here? Up to now, GOP leaders have been soft on the issue of border security.
They’ve also been eager to be perceived (in the media, etc.) as pro-Latino. But I’m thinking that Obama just took all of that ground away from them: there is no possible way, now, that GOP leaders can ever be perceived as more pro-illegal immigrant or pro-Latino than Obama.
In that sense, Obama just took away any incentive that GOP leaders would have for compromising with him. I think that will blow up in Obama’s face. And I think he has just proven to the voters that Democrats truly don’t give a hoot about border security.(*)
NB: The first version of this post misquoted Obama slightly; the quote has been corrected.
(*) Again, because of its glaring absence from the Democrats’ real set of concerns.
And by ‘White Supremacist’ I mean ‘African-American Democrat Elected Public Official.’
Monday night on MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” Missouri State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadali (D) said of the riots after the grand jury announcement that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson will not face charges for fatally shooting Michael Brown, “This is St. Louis’s race war. We didn’t have a race war like other cities throughout the U.S. This is our race war.”
To Barack Obama, illegal immigrants are fruit-pickers and bedpan washers. To John McCain, they’re lettuce-pickers. To Hillary Clinton, illegal immigrants are busboys and dishwashers. To Karl Rove, they are the people who pick tomatoes and make up beds so his kids won’t have to.
But it’s not just illegal immigrants they see as menial laborers; beneath the high stations they have gotten for themselves. Think about this; all of these people — and most of the economic and political “Elite” in the United States — would like to hand out American citizenship like library cards to anyone who crossed the border. It means nothing to them. They don’t hold American citizenship in much esteem because they don’t hold American citizens in much esteem, as the remarks of Mr. Jonathan Gruber have revealed.
They know that importing millions of unit of cheap foreign labor will negatively impact the wages of American workers. They don’t care, and they lie about it, “If you like your middle class lifestyle, you can keep your middle class lifestyle,” they reassure us. The elite don’t care because they don’t see illegal immigrant labor affecting them or their class in any negative way. They see no difference between illegal immigrants and working class Americans — except, in the words of an aide to Senator Marco Rubio. “American workers can’t cut it.” To the Gentry, all of us who aren’t them might as well be fruit-pickers, lettuce-pickers, busboys, linen launderers — peasants to be ruled over by members of the Lucky Sperm Club.
The system the progressives most admire is the People’s Republic of China; a political elite wields absolute power, which they use to elevate friends and cronies to positions of wealth and status provided they profess unyielding loyalty to the party. And middle class is defined as having a 200 square foot apartment in a Proletarian rabbit warren.
The looters burned Ferguson, duh. It’s amazing how destructive people can be who don’t have to worry about showing up at work in the morning. But the rioters did not lack for encouragement.
From the get-go, there was a false narrative put forth about the original incident — Innocent black schoolboy shot for jaywalking by racist white cop. Hardly a lick of this narrative turned out to be true. Mike Brown, at 6’4″ 292 lbs, was no little schoolboy, and unless ‘jaywalking’ is how you say ‘assaulting a cop’ in Ebonics, he was no innocent either. For that matter, the only evidence offered that Darren Wilson was racist is that he happens to be white and a cop, which is apparently enough.
It was known fairly soon after incident that “innocent black schoolboy gunned down by racist cop” was a false narrative. But it was a narrative that was cynically promoted by the progressive left in order to advance their agenda. The Democrat Party — From Barack Obama and Eric Holder on down to bottom-feeders like Marcia Fudge and Jamilah Nasheed saw ‘The Narrative’ as a way of advancing their political fortunes and turning out the African-American base for the mid-terms. The wreckage he leaves in his wake — Crown Heights, Freddie’s Fashion Mart, Ferguson — collateral damage in his battle for self-aggrandizement.
For the Progressive media, the false narrative was an opportunity to promote the view of America as racist and terrible with which they have been indoctrinated since Journalism School. Journalists see it as their job to promote the narrative, to ‘change the world.’ to bend the arc of history toward socialism. As a bonus, video footage of black people rioting and looting is good for ratings.
And bridging left-wing media and left-wing politics is, of course, the Reverend Al Sharpton; who has made an entire career out of stirring the racial pot and been rewarded with a television show (despite barely being able to read a Teleprompter) and a position as a close adviser to the President of the United States.
Meanwhile, the people who suffer are the residents of Ferguson MO, who will now be deprived of jobs, opportunities, and shopping choices. But who care about about a bunch of ‘stupid American voters’ in flyover country, as long as the progressive left has a narrative to exploit.
Now, just where did those Ferguson rioters get the idea that when a legal process doesn’t produce the result you want, it’s okay to just go ahead and break the law?
The President’s address tonight was notable for its utter lack of any scintilla of self-awareness.
“We are a nation built on the rule of law, so this decision was the grand jury’s to make.” – Obama on #Ferguson
It used to be said that a conservative was a liberal who had been mugged. But today’s liberals are far more stupid than those of days gone by. Take this jewel of elite breeding and indoctrination.
Senior Oliver Friedfeld and his roommate were held at gunpoint and mugged around a week ago. However, the GU student isn’t upset. In fact he says he “can hardly blame [his muggers].”
“Not once did I consider our attackers to be ‘bad people.’ I trust that they weren’t trying to hurt me. In fact, if they knew me, I bet they’d think I was okay,” wrote Friedfeld in an editorial featured in The Hoya, the university’s newspaper. “The fact that these two kids, who appeared younger than I, have even had to entertain these questions suggests their universes are light years away from mine.”
Friedfeld claims it is the pronounced inequality gap in Washington, D.C. that has fueled these types of crimes. He also says that as a middle-class man, he does not have the right to judge his muggers.
“Who am I to stand from my perch of privilege, surrounded by million-dollar homes and paying for a $60,000 education, to condemn these young men as ‘thugs?’” asks Friedfeld. “It’s precisely this kind of ‘otherization’ that fuels the problem.”
Mug him again.
Some people consider the price of a McDonald’s “Big Mac” to be a reality check for what is happening to consumer prices. Why?
In recent years, Big Macs have gone up rather more than the CPI. Why? Several different explanations could be put forward. The least likely explanation is that McDonald’s has suddenly become inefficient at making Big Macs.
Another possible explanation is that the government keeps toying with how it calculates CPI, looking for ways to understate consumer price inflation. That is, to hide it. Which is in the government’s direct, financial interest: that way, the government can make smaller inflation adjustments to Social Security, income tax brackets, inflation-indexed bonds, etc. Plus the political optics are better.
Courtesy of Forbes, Big Mac Index Shows Official CPI Underreports Inflation:
What is the graph saying?
So, whom do you believe? Our noble government which always looks out for you? Or your lyin’ eyes, when you go to buy a Big Mac?
I believe my eyes. I’m more likely to to hit Starbucks or In-N-Out Burger than McDonald’s; but in all 3 cases, I’m always a little shocked at how their prices have gone up from 10, 5 or even just 1-2 years ago. Poor people, who may eat at fast-food restaurants often, must really feel it.
Bonus question: Why would things have changed in the last six years? Who has been in charge of the government – that is, both the CPI calculation, and our general economic policies?
Even SJW’s have gotten tired at screaming “racism” at everything and so now they are mixing it up a little by screeching that various innocuous things are “Privilege.” Time doctors-office-pamphlet says if you’re a dude and you don’t have to cross your legs when you sit down; that’s male privilege baby.
In an article called, “‘Man Spreaders,’ There’s No Excuse for Not Closing Your Legs on the Subway,” Time’s Etiquette section slammed men who do not sit with their legs together. But more than it being impolite and against etiquette, there is a much bigger problem with men like this: they are proliferating “the patriarchy.”
The article explains that men sitting with their legs apart “is the most visual manifestation of patriarchal privilege and that is why it is especially angering.”
Actually, I think this article is the most visible manifestation of a loony feminist zeta male.
You know what real male privilege is? It’s Bill Clinton getting to grope all the women he wants and still be a hero of the Democrat Party.
Indeed. [HT: The Blaze]
The departure of Barbara Walters has left ABC’s ‘The View’ without any adult supervision. And the addition of a shrill, deranged, conspiracy-spouting lesbian to the mix has… unsurprisingly… led to some serious dysfunction.
A shrill, backstage brawl at “The View” Wednesday left co-host Rosie Perez in tears while panelists Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell battled over how to cover the latest allegations against Bill Cosby and the racially charged upheaval in Ferguson, Mo., sources said.
O’Donnell believed the show — now overseen by ABC News — needed to delve deeper into both controversial subjects, while Goldberg wanted to steer clear of the topics altogether.
Ultimately, both news stories were discussed at length on the air by the panel.
“There’s terrible frustration and there are problems,” a source close to the show told the Daily News. “Whoopi didn’t want to talk about Cosby and Ferguson, Rosie (O’Donnell) did — how could you not? These are topics that are uncomfortable for everyone, but it’s ‘The View’ and it’s their job to talk about topics that might make some people tense.”
Fortunately, there were very few witnesses to the train wreck.
With Walters now retired, there’s no center of gravity to the show, no one to reign in the lunatics inside the asylum. No wonder the ratings have plummeted with the formula broken and the cast is feuding with each other.
Anti-Vaccination whackjob Jenny McCarthy now looks like the smart one for walking away from this not-so-hot mess.
Bet this wouldn’t have happened if they had picked Tammy Bruce instead of Rosie.
I also bet this kind of stuff doesn’t happen on ‘The Five.’ And this clip may explain why:
When I read about Obama-bundler Terry Bean’s arrest for sodomizing a 15-year-old boy, [And don't tell me a 15 year old isn't a child when Obamacare is claiming that 25 year olds are children and the anti-gun left is claiming 22 year olds are children] I did not know that he was not just a Democrat activist but also a founder of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Nor did I realize that Bean is 66 years old and his boyfriend (who was also arrested) is 25.
[BTW: The comments on Dan Savage’s blog are very much “so what” about the age difference; apparently it’s “heteronormative” to be repulsed by a 66 year old creeper molesting teenaged boys.] [And yes, intergenerational hetero relationships also gross people out.]
Anyway, I looked up Terry Bean’s Wikipedia page; figuring such a prominent Democrat with a massive ego probably has to have his own wikipedia page and figured it would list his proud accomplishments; founding two
Democrat front operations gay rights organizations, hob-nobbing with Democrat politicians, taking on all of the appropriate causes. Like all good left-wing activists, he blamed Republicans for AIDS.
Bean decried the failure of the Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations to respond to the crisis and threw his fundraising muscle behind Bill Clinton’s candidacy in 1992, because of his promise to address the AIDS crisis. He said, “I have way too many friends who have just too few T-cells in their blood to be able to survive four more years of George Bush. This is the politics of survival.”
This creeper was apparently quite the Democrat hero.
Terry Bean has received many awards for his political activism over the years, including from the Equity Foundation, the Victory Fund, the Human Rights Campaign, and Basic Rights Oregon. Former Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski declared August 23, 2008, to be “Terry Bean Equality Day” in Oregon, in recognition for the work he has done on LGBT rights causes since the 1970s.
Reminds me of another gay activist hero, Larry Brinken.
Larry Brinkin, the iconic San Francisco gay activist who brought the nation’s first domestic partnership lawsuit in 1982, was arrested Friday on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography, police said.
[The San Francisco Board of Supervisors declared] the first seven days of February 2010 “Larry Brinkin Week” in honor of his advocacy.
So, why bring all of this up? Simple, the activist left is full of smug, self-righteous activists who need to be taken down a peg or two. Also, to understand the real agenda of the progressive left, you have to see the kind of people who are leaders in the progressive left, who are lauded by the progressive left, and realize how dark, evil, and creepy they are. And also be repulsed at how many others on the left are willing to defend them.
Some of us have been intellectually honest and consistent in our opposition to the usurpation of power by the president and the loss of individual liberty. But as [Weird Dave] at AoS HQ points out. if you were okay with gay marriage being imposed by judicial fiat, you have forfeited your right to complain about Amnesty imposed by Executive fiat.
When you bitched and ranted about presidential usurpation of legislative prerogatives, however, I find it hard to take you seriously. It’s not that you’re wrong, gods no, it’s just that I remember you crowing about judicial usurpation of legislative authority on the issue of gay marriage. “We’ve got 35 states now!” you said triumphantly a few weeks back when the latest ruling was issued.
It’s all about the loss of liberty; which a lot of people are okay with so long as the Oligarchy is imposing those things that they want to see imposed. The bad news is, once you have summoned this demon, you won’t be able to control it.
If blind pursuit of short term goals achieves them at the cost of destroying the larger societal structure, and we fall into totalitarianism, what then? Can you name one totalitarian regime in history that has been kind to minorities or homosexuals? I can’t think of any. Can you?
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Men’s Central Jail has a one-of-a-kind wing for gay and transgender inmates — and it’s so popular that corrections officers actually have to test inmates on their sexuality to keep straight men out.
As the inmates described it in an in-depth report and video from LA Weekly, the wing gives gay and transgender prisoners a chance to express themselves freely without worrying about the politics and judgement (and often violence) that are prevalent in other parts of the Los Angeles jail.
The inmates’ creativity and relative freedom can be seen in their altered prison gear. They often cut up sheets into dresses and underwear and dye clothes with candies like Skittles. Some show off their creations by walking through impromptu runways between beds, as other inmates cheer them on.
Sounds like (some people’s idea of) fun. Who does a TG have to kill to get in on that?
Would LA County consider allowing rednecks to tear the sleeves off their prison jumpsuits and cut up their sheets to make do-rags? I would have thought destruction of jail property was a no-no.
Last night, the Emperor went on Spanish-Language television and announced his decree giving Amnesty to millions of Mexican fruit-pickers. (Is that racist? Take it up with the Emperor, those were his words.) Eric, a gay man living in Massachusetts who has spent years and thousands of dollars trying to arrange for his partner to emigrate legally to the United States, indicates the injustice of Obama’s Amnesty scheme to reward lawbreakers with legal status (and, eventually, full citizenship).
Well, just yesterday he had an interview with the US embassy. And it was a success. After 17 months and $6,000, you know. And we’re just waiting on some medical stuff to come through. Again, my point being, there are people coming over the border giving foot-and-mouth disease, and I have to get a medical certificate for my spouse.
My spouse is a biologist, a chemist, and a pharmacist. He currently tests the water content in El Salvador. He will come to the United States to hopefully be a contributor, you know, a pharmacist, a chemist, a biologist, whatever.
But you can’t bring 9 to 34 million people with a third world mentality into the United States and have this country remain a first world country. It doesn’t work. You’re going to destroy this country. That’s not a bigoted statement. It’s fact. I’ve lived down there and know what the conditions are like.
I’m so sick to my stomach over what he’ll do tonight. Not only because of what it will do to America, but also because of what I’ve personally gone through. This president is not a friend to the LGBT community. And I really, really wish that my gay brothers and sisters would wake up and see that
So long as this man kowtows to Saudi Arabia and makes deal with Iran and is pro-Islam, he is not a friend to the gay community friend. Period. The end.
