Progressives Exempt Themselves

Some news on the leftist hypocrisy front, the left-wing unions in Los Angeles have been fighting to price themselves out of the labor market and be replaced by robots for a $15-an-hour living wage. And now that they are on the verge of getting Government to force that law on business owners, the unions are demanding that they and their workers be exempt from it.

Also, socialist icon Elizabeth Warren (D-MASS) apparently bought an old lady’s house for $30K and then, instead of making it into affordable housing for the proletariat, flipped it for a $115K profit. Someone should tell her she didn’t build that, and has no right to make money from it.

Absolutely Essential Government Spending

The Government thought it would be fun to finance a study to help schizophrenic Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians [LGBT] deal with the oppression of convenience store clerks.

The National Institutes of Health through its National Institute of Mental Health has awarded $52,293 in taxpayer funding to the Toronto-based Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to study how to reduce discrimination of lesbian, gay and transgender people with schizophrenia by members of the community they are in frequent contact with, like the “convenience store clerk.”

Oh, the crippling austerity. When will it end?

With purchase of 5000 or more, you’re entitled to her support for the policy of your choice.

Or, and her Socialist Democrat alternative, Comrade Senator Bernie Sanders, thinks there are too many kinds of deodorant; an example of decadent capitalist excess. In a centrally planned socialist economy as he would like the USA to be, there would be one brand of deodorant, which you would wait in line for six hours to purchase and it would fall apart at first use.

News of the World

Just a few headlines today.

Goldman-Sachs, a company of exceptionally greedy progressive rent-seekers, says that the world is drowning in debt. Well, duh. The progressives claim that the USA can continue to rack up debt indefinitely because the dollar is a reserve currency, and deficits don’t matter, and we should actually be borrowing and spending a lot more than we already do. Because everybody knows that having an exploding Government on top of a shrinking private sector is totes sustainable.

The Senate Republicans under Mitch McConnell continued enacting and empowering the Obama Agenda by passing the president’s “Trade Authority,” i.e. the ability for Obama to conduct trade negotiations under total secrecy with no transparency and Congress gets to vote the final secret trade pact up or down without amendments. Call it “Obamatrade.” The Chamber of Commerce wants this, and promises it will create jobs and prosperity. You know, just like they said NAFTA would. How well has that worked out?

81% of Al Jazeera’s Arabic audience supports ISIS; so where is this Moderate Muslim Majority I keep hearing so much about?

Segregation is now being promoted by progressives as a Civil Right. Exhibit A: A $43,000 a year private elementary school in NYC is instituting monoracial classes. Exhibit B: Universities setting up “safe spaces” that exclude white people. The rationale is that racially homogenous environments are better for black and brown children, who just can’t compete with their lighter skinned peers. (When leftists do it, it’s not racism.)

Disinhibited by the company of racially different peers, the children would, the school hoped, feel free to raise questions and make observations that in mixed company might be considered impolite. The bigger goal was to initiate a cultural upheaval, one that would finally give students of color a sense of equal ownership in the community

Criminals are running amok in Baltimore after the mayor told them to them to stand down and give those who want to destroy space to destroy and an overzealous state’s attorney indicted six others because a drug dealer died in their custody. But remember… the really, REALLY important lesson here is not to call violent criminals thugs because it’s racist; Rachel Maddow said so.

So… runaway debt, useless Republicans, racial division, and criminals running amok because corrupt big city Democrats don’t dare offend the mob. Pretty much sums up Obama’s America, doesn’t it?

(Son to Father. . .)
Do not call me, father. Do not seek me.
Do not call me. Do not wish me back.
We’re on a route uncharted, fire and blood erase our track.

On we fly on wings of thunder, never more to sheathe our swords.
All of us in battle fallen – not to be brought back by words.

Will there be a rendezvous?
I know not. I only know we still must fight.
We are sand grains in infinity, never to meet.
nevermore to see light.

(Father to Son . . .)
Farewell, then my son. Farewell then my conscience.
Farewell my youth, my solace, my one and my only.

Let this farewell be the end of the story,
A solitude vast in which none is more lonely,
In which you remained barred forever
From light, from air, with your death pains untold.
Untold and unsoothed, never to be resurrected.
Forever and ever an 18 year old.

Farewell then.
No trains ever come from those regions,
Unscheduled and scheduled.
No aeroplanes fly there.

Farewell then my son,
For no miracles happen, as in this world
Dreams do not come true.

Farewell.
I will dream of you still as a baby,
Treading the earth with little strong toes,
The earth where already so many lie buried.

This song to my son, then, is come to its close.

The Duggar Thing and the Left’s Complete Misunderstanding of Christianity

Posted by V the K at 9:45 pm - May 24, 2015.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy,Pop Culture

The left, and vile POS Dan Savage in particular, is obsessed with the Duggar family of Arkansas; because they are white, hetersexual, Christian fundamentalists and refuse to be ashamed of any of those things like leftists think they should be.

And it turns out, one of the Duggar boys, a long time ago, did something terrible. He confessed to it, repented of it, and never made any attempt to excuse or justify it, or ask anyone else to. And that thing he did was similar in kind and degree to what honored left-wing film-makers Roman Polanski, Victor Salva, and Woody Allen did; none of whom repented of the child-rapes or creepy incestuous molestations they committed, and all of whom are welcome members of the left-wing film-making community.

But the left is going after the Duggar family with all the pitchforks and torches they can round up. And they are… in the manner of a crazed, self-righteous mob… positively gleeful about the alleged hypocrisy of the Duggar situation… because it supposedly proves Christians are awful, Christians are hypocrites, Christianity is a lie, and everybody should be a hedonistic atheist; because they are paragons of never being hypocrites.

Glenn Beck explains why they are wrong, wrong. wrong!

They would indeed be correct in their assessment if the central tenet of the Christian faith was that all believers in Christ are without sin or blemish. But far from that being a doctrine of the religion, it is actually the precise opposite of what Christians believe. None of us — not the Duggars, not anyone — claim that a faith in Jesus bestows perfect holiness on the faithful. It is because of our sinful nature that we need Him. When we sin, we do not disprove that thesis; we underscore it.

Christianity is not a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card that absolves holders of all transgressions, but Leftism totally is. Leftism is why Al Gore can fly all over the world on private jets and have multiple homes that have a larger carbon footprint than some third world countries; his leftism makes it okay. Leftism is why Bill Clinton can be a serial abuser of women and have feminists run to his defense; his leftism makes it okay. Leftism is why Michael Moore can avoid union labor and take tax breaks for making movies in Michigan while decrying corporate welfare; his leftism makes it okay.

Leftists don’t understand Chrisitianity; because it is utterly unlike leftism.

Progressive Middle School Teacher Fired for Letting Kids Have Sex in His Classroom

A Georgia middle-school teacher embracing the progressive ethos that since kids are gonna do it anyway, they should be encouraged to explore sexuality in a safe, responsible way… he decided to let them have sex in his classroom.

Considering we have a Safe School Czar who encouraged teenagers to have sex with strangers in bus station bathrooms,  the classroom seems like kind of a step up from that.

But instead of rewarding him for creating a progressive, sex-positive, inclusive environment… the school board fired him

Crazy, right?

I mean, it’s not like he was one of those right-wing nutjobs who encourage kids to be abstinent.

There Is No Appeasing a Fascist Mob

Filed under: Gay Marriage

So, a Canadian jeweler went against his religious  beliefs and complied when lesbians demand that he custom-make wedding rings for them.
But the mob turned on him anyway.

This Christian jeweler agreed to custom-make engagement rings for a lesbian couple, knowing that they were a couple, and treated them politely. But when they found out what he really believed about same-sex marriage, even though the man gave them polite service, and agreed to sell them what they asked for, the lesbian couple balked, and demanded their money back — and the mob threatened the business if they didn’t yield. Which, of course, he did.

It’s not enough for a Christian business to provide service even when it contradicts his moral values, you must celebrate gaydom in all its forms or you will be punished.

Wussifying the Boy Scouts

Filed under: Gay PC Silliness

The leadership of the Boy Scouts of America have decided to join the progressive-left crusade against masculinity and boyhood by enforcing the following “safety” rules.

  • No water pistols, because shooting at other people with water is “unkind”
  • No water balloons larger than ping-pong balls and made of biodegradeable materials.
  • No laser tag or paintball either, except for shooting at targets that in no way resemble people

Gee, why don’t they just start selling Samoas and Thin Mints and make it official?

Congratulations, progressive leftist bullies, your long war against the BSA and all other things normal and decent is nearing total victory.

A study survey conducted through the Center for Disease Control of 10,000 New York City teens over the course of three years revealed that gay and bisexual teens are twice as likely to get pregnant as their heterosexual peers.

Mattress Girl and Her Cowardly Enablers

Posted by V the K at 8:10 am - May 22, 2015.
Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs

There’s a post at Red State about how the “narrative > truth” philosophy of the modern left plays out in the Mattress Girl Rape Hoax. But, there is another angle to why Colmbia University let Emma “Sulky” Sulkowicz get away with defying the terms of confidentiality she had agreed to, engage in the stunt of arrying a mattress all over campus, and even carrying it to graduation in defiance of their own rules against having “large objects” at the ceremony. Risk Aversion. The management at Columbia University made a risk-benefit calculation that went as follows.

  • Emma Sulkowicz is a female with a narrative that fits into the national hysteria about campus “rape,” who also has powerful feminist, media, and political (a certain New York senator) allies on her side.
  • Paul Nungesser is a white heterosexual male, no one is going to come to his defense.

Democrat Media Operatives Attack Republican for Not Being Rich Enough

Posted by V the K at 7:29 am - May 22, 2015.
Filed under: Media Bias

[via Powerline]

After spending 2012 gleefully promoting the narrative that Mitt Romney was too rich and out of touch to relate to average Americans, the Democrat Media Operatives at the Washington Post are now attacking Marco Rubio… for not being rich enough.

Marco Rubio made $174,000 as a U.S. senator last year. He earned $52,000 from book royalties and a university teaching position, and at least $5,000 more from rental property.

And yet, the 43-year-old Florida Republican also made what is typically viewed as a desperate financial maneuver — cashing out nearly $70,000 in retirement funds.

As Rubio runs for president, newly disclosed personal finance details have drawn fresh attention to a long-running problem during his political career: his struggles with money.

In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Rubio said that he needed “access to cash” for personal expenses and in anticipation of running for president. He said he has at least two other active retirement accounts.

“My refrigerator broke down,” Rubio said. “That was $3,000. I had to replace the air-conditioning unit in our home. My kids all go to school, and they are getting closer to college, and school’s getting more expensive.”

And the Democrat Media Operatives produce a quote from a Democrat Party Apparatchik to explain why this is a problem. ““Most average Americans are not buying a $3,000 refrigerator,” he said. “Most families don’t have the luxury of sending their kids to private schools.”

Actually, $3,000 is not out of line for a quality refrigerator that meets the stringent EPA energy saving requirements. As for withdrawing from retirement accounts, a lot of middle class people have to hit those accounts for emergencies; like the year my employer screwed up the withholding on my state income taxes and I got hit with a sudden unexpected $8,000 tax bill.

Meanwhile, Hillary and Bill rack up millions of dollars from foreign governments, crony corporations, and special interest groups who sure as hell are not paying them because their speeches are so full of wisdom and sound business advice — and the WaPo doesn’t bat an eye.

Feminists Have Nuttier Ideas About Rape Than Todd Akin

Posted by V the K at 8:44 pm - May 21, 2015.
Filed under: Hysteria on the Left

One of Mattress Girl Emma Sulkowicz’s dippy feminist friends has also accused the guy she accused of rape of rape.

This is how she described the traumatic incident.

The incident happened my junior year at Columbia, when Paul followed me upstairs at a party, came into a room with me uninvited, closed the door behind us, and grabbed me. I politely said, “Hey, no, come on, let’s go back downstairs.” He didn’t listen. He held me close to him as I said no, and continued to pull me against him. I pushed him off and left the room quickly.

That ain’t rape toots.

In a more civilized era, when women were strong and not delicate little snowflakes totally incapable of dealing with any adversity, a woman would have slapped the guy across the face and gotten on with her life.

Oh, also a dude friend of hers claimed the guy tried to “rape” him in a similar manner; and later further degraded him by… I am not making this up… “complimenting some points [the alleged victim] had made in a class discussion.”

WTF is wrong with these people.

Bring It, Cruz Missile!

The Democrat Media Operatives (a.k.a. “journalists”) in the MFM love to hound Republican candidates on the most divisive issues they possibly can. No one in the MFM will ever ask Hillary to explain why she supports partial birth abortion or gun control, but Republicans are hounded constantly about gay marriage.  The Democrat press has discovered that if they ask Republicans nothing but questions about divisive social issues, their hacks can then claim that “Republicans are obsessed with social issues because they won’t talk about anything else.”

Most Republicans just try and play along with the game; vainly hoping that they can get away with the same anodyne, focus group tested non-answers that Democrats get away with. They naively assume that the press isn’t a Democrat propaganda machine staffed by Democrat operatives.

But at least one Republican isn’t playing the game.

“Is there something about the left — and I am going to put the media in this category — that is obsessed with sex?” [Senator Ted] Cruz asked after fielding multiple questions on gay rights. “ISIS is executing homosexuals — you want to talk about gay rights? This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals — that ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.”

Cruz also said he did not think his opposition to gay marriage will hurt his chances with moderate voters.

“With respect, I would suggest not drawing your questions from MSNBC — they have very few viewers and they are a radical and extreme partisan outlet,” Cruz told a reporter.

 

The Example of the Icarians

Posted by V the K at 8:15 am - May 21, 2015.
Filed under: Socialism in America

In 1849, a group of proto-socialists calling themselves the “Icarians” moved into an abandoned Mormon settlement in Nauvoo, Illinois. Their intent was to create a utopian society based on collectivism and equality.

Like the modern left, they were enthralled with a charismatic leader, Etienne Cabet. Like the modern left, they were appalled by the “inequality” created by capitalism, and convinced that a collective social order would create equality.

Like the modern left, they were incapable of building anything on their own, but co-opted what had been built by an earlier, more industrious society. The Mormons, who had been driven out of Nauvoo a few years earlier, had left behind homes,shops and workplaces that were occupied by the Icarians.

Every Icarian was allotted two rooms and identical furniture. In a move that would have gladdened MSNBC, children were separated from their parents and raised in collective-run schools. Religion was replaced with Sunday lectures on Icarian philosophy.

Within a few years, the socialist experiment failed, as their utopia collapsed due to “economic setbacks, policy disagreements and personal rivalries

Socialism has never, ever delivered on its promises; never, ever succeeded anywhere. And yet it will always be with us so long as there are people gullible enough to believe in its pipe dreams of equality and social justice and cynical autocrats willing to exploit those gullible idiots.

Confirmation Bias Strikes Again

Filed under: Gay Culture

You know that study that was very much hyped by the left-wing media that purported to show that gay activists could change the minds of people on gay marriage just by a few minutes of subjecting them to lame slogans and hackneyed talking points about “equality” and such. (I am sure it was copy-pasted into the comments here multiple times.)

It was all b-llsh-t.

In what can only be described as a remarkable and swift series of events, one of the authors of a much-ballyhooed Science paper claiming that short conversations could change people’s minds on same-sex marriage is retracting it following revelations that the data were faked by his co-author.

The study received widespread media attention, including from This American Life, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Science Friday, Vox, and HuffingtonPost, as LaCour’s site notes.

The Left-Wing media are retracting their previous stories based on the study, the authors are going into Hillary mode (Questions from the press? No thank you.) But I am curious what happened to the thousands of dollars in grant money that supposedly went into a study that apparently faked all of its survey data.

Constitutional This and That

Posted by V the K at 7:51 am - May 20, 2015.
Filed under: Constitutional Issues

Ruth Bader Ginsburg – the leftist Supreme Court Justice who thinks abortion is terrific because it keeps down “populations we don’t want to have too many of” (Gee, what could she mean by that?) – presided over a fancy-schmancy gay wedding between a couple of very, very elite leftist gays, and apparently made it a big deal to invoke the Constitution.

On Sunday afternoon, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an outspoken supporter of same-sex marriage, used the occasion of presiding over a same-sex wedding ceremony to cite the Constitution as the source of her power to wed the two men.

The guests, thrilled that Ginsburg invoked the Constitution, clapped with great gusto.

Of course they did. Leftists are nothing if not trained seals conditioned to applaud when their leftist pieties are invoked; John Stewart, David Letterman, Ed Schultz, and Bill Maher make a good living throwing rhetorical fish to the left’s trained seals.

If only Justice Ginsburg had as much concern over gay people’s Constitutional Right to bear arms in self-defense as she does to the imaginary right to get married. But in her view, gays have no right to bear arms, and neither does anyone else.

The word “marriage” appears nowhere in the Constitution. The right to bear arms is right up there at Number 2, and stated most explicitly. But using the magic leftist ability to find things in the Constitution that aren’t there, and deny the existence of things that are there quite explicitly (the 2nd and 10th Amendments, for example), she finds a ‘right’ to gay marriage while denying the right to self-defense.

Personally, I’d be delighted to live in a country where happily married gay couples had closets full of assault weapons. – Glenn Reynolds.

On a positive note, a Federal Judge has struck down Washington DC’s “You can only exercise your 2nd Amendment Rights if the State decides you have a good reason to” gun control law. These “may issue” laws are set up so that only the politically connected can have access to firearms in self-defense.

Washington DC is the jurisdiction where a man was prosecuted for the possession of a spent and useless shotgun shell; which is what the left calls a “Common Sense Gun Law.”
