Another Week, Another Silly Gay Nontroversy

The CEO of Mozilla holds a politically incorrect opinion on gay marriage. Since Mozilla produces the Firefox browser, the gay left … in their usual perfectly reasonable way … wants you to know that if you use Firefox, you’re morally equivalent to Josef Mengele. Possibly worse. Probably worse, in fact.

Matchmaking website OKCupid wants its users to boycott Firefox; and gives this histrionic explanation.

If individuals like Mr. Eich had their way, then roughly 8% of the relationships we’ve worked so hard to bring about would be illegal… Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure.

Is there any evidence Mr. Eich wants gay relationships illegal or gay people to be miserable? Of course not, this is just the usual gay-left drama queen victimhood and bullying twofer.

Seriously, we would all be better off if these people would just grow the hell up.

 

Terry MacAuliffe Gets Right Down to Business

It was well-known Terry MacAulliffe was sleazy and corrupt, but he was elected Governor of Virginia on the basis that his opponent was supposedly going to outlaw gay sex or somesuch. And when you vote stupidly, this is the kind of thing you can expect.

[Virginia Governor Terry] McAuliffe said aides sent a fundraising solicitation without his knowledge or approval. The request asked for donations to the new Common Good Virginia PAC in increments of $10,000, $25,000, $50,000 and $100,000, with corresponding levels of access to the governor.

Donors who gave $100,000 were promised a private dinner with the Democratic governor and his wife. The fundraising letter, first posted on the conservative website BearingDrift.com, also promised large donors monthly meetings with unnamed policy experts.

Democrats Attempt Jedi Mind Trick

First up, Senator Angus King of Maine (an alleged Independent who just happens to vote in lockstep with the senate Democrats), claiming “There is no such thing as Obamacare.”

There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can’t sign up for Obamacare. You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It’s private insurance.

“This is not the Massive Socialist Failure You’re Looking For,” (waves hand).

You can bet if it were working, they’d be calling it Obamacare.

Also, Democrat Majority Leader Senator Harry Reid of Nevada is either lying or no longer capable of remembering when he’s lying.

“We heard about the evils of ObamaCare, about the lives it’s ruining in Republicans’ stump speeches and in ads paid for by oil magnates, the Koch brothers. But in those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements.” – Senator Harry Reid, February 2014

 

“Mr. President, the junior Senator from Wyoming has come to the floor several times recently talking about the fact that examples that he and other Republicans have given, dealing with ObamaCare, examples that they think are bad, I’ve called lies. Mr. President, that is simply untrue. I have never come to the floor, to my recollection, and I never said a word about any of the examples that Republicans have given regarding ObamaCare and how it’s not very good.” -
Senator Harry Reid, March 2014

Thank you, Nevada, for sending the rest of the country this gift. Thank you, oh so bloody much. Now, exactly when did you guys start hating the rest of America as much as Massachusetts does?

‘Noah’ and Not Getting That Religion Thing

Posted by V the K at 11:49 pm - March 30, 2014.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends,Religion (General)

Reading Matt Walsh’s review of Noah, which pretty much aligns with most of the other reviews I’ve read. The film is marketed to appeal to a religious audience, but is contemptuous of religion (the director is an atheist). Also, it’s poorly made, with ludicrous special effects, ridiculous ‘rock people,’ and a muddled plot that bears only a passing resemblance to the Biblical account.  But what struck me were the comments, many of which were along the lines of this one:

Let me ask you a question Mr. Matt Walsh, what’s the point of making this movie if it’s the same as the original story? I mean seriously, do you know nothing about movies? They are made for entertainment, not to pass down stories(Documentaries aren’t movies, they’re documentaries). New things are good. Take a look at the Harry Potter movies. The fifth one, The Order of the Phoenix, was nothing like it’s original, yet it got a 7.4, a somewhat decent review. All in all, don’t judge a movie on whether or not it sticks to the original story, treat it as it’s own story.

This comment, and others in the same vein, made me realize; to a lot of people, there really is no difference between the Harry Potter books and the Holy Bible. There are no sacred texts; no eternal truths. There is just whatever entertains you at a specific moment in time. From that starting point, it’s easy to see the producers missing the point of the Biblical story of Noah: That God will preserve the righteous and faithful, even if the rest of the world perishes because of their evil. It’s a point that doesn’t make it across when Noah, instead of being portrayed as righteous and faithful, is portrayed as deranged and obsessed (which is pretty much the standard for religious folk in the Hollywood universe; except for the Noble Mohammedans.).

A conversation I keep having with people

Filed under: Debt Crisis,Depression 2.0,Economy

Other: How ’bout that economy?
Jeff: The U.S. dollar’s days are numbered. I don’t know when, but sometime in the next five years (and maybe even beginning as soon as this year), the dollar will be kicked out as the key world currency.
Other: That’s crazy. We’re Number One. Other countries need us to trade with.
Jeff: Not necessarily. In fact, it would be good for other countries to keep more goods for their own people, rather than sending them to us just for our crappy paper dollars.
Other: But dollars are how you, like, buy stuff. Countries will always need dollars.
Jeff: Why? They can set up payment and trade systems in their own currencies, without us. And stupid Obama is helping to push Russia, China and India together as we speak. That’s half the world.
Other: But Germany and Japan will stick with the U.S.
Jeff: Really? Why? Japan is a sinking ship. Germany isn’t, but Germany traditionally does business with Russia and China. They could wake up and re-align at any time.
Other: That’s crazy. Germany has been pro-U.S. for 70 years. They’ll never change.
Jeff: Hmm, why are you so sure?
Other: How ’bout them Niners? It’s been raining cats and dogs.

Now consider this news item: Bundesbank, PBOC in Pact to Turn Frankfurt Into Renminbi Hub.

Germany’s Bundesbank and the People’€™s Bank of China agreed to cooperate in the clearing and settling of payments in [China's] renminbi…

The central banks signed a memorandum of understanding in Berlin today…

“Frankfurt is one of Europe’s foremost financial centers and home to two central banks, making it a particularly suitable location,” said Joachim Nagel, a member of the Bundesbank’s executive board. “Renminbi clearing will strengthen the close economic and financial ties between Germany and the People’s Republic of China.”…

In a sign of closer economic ties between the two countries, China plans to open a fourth consulate in Germany…About 800 Chinese companies have bases in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany’s industrial heartland…

German companies including Siemens AG, the country’s biggest engineering company, and Volkswagen AG are embracing the renminbi internally as a third currency for cross-border trade settlements…

This isn’t new; it’s a trend. China has been inking pacts with country after country in the last five years, so they can stop needing the U.S. dollar. That’s how and why the dollar is getting set for a fall.

I don’t think this trend has been reported much, in U.S. media. I try to spread the word, as I can. The U.S. has worsened its own problems in the last six years, and is moving toward some tough times. Get ready. Have your life in order: health & relationships fixed, debts paid, career solid. Also, don’t hide under a rock, but just in case things get really bad, consider maybe having some emergency supplies, gold and/or guns.

Don’t say you weren’t warned. Russia, China and India have problems too, but some (not all) of those problems stem from U.S. dominance and will be solved as they slowly re-organize the world in their favor.

The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

ROSA PARKS: MY STORY: THE FULL 146-WORD TEXT OF THE TERM PAPER

On the evening of December Rosa Parks decided that she was going to sit in the white people section on the bus in Montgomery, Alabama.

During this time blacks had to give up there seats to whites when more whites got on the bus. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat.

Her and the bus driver began to talk and the conversation went like this. ‘Let me have those front seats’ said the driver.

She didn’t get up and told the driver that she was tired of giving her seat to white people.

‘I’m going to have you arrested,’ said the driver. ‘You may do that,’ Rosa Parks responded.

Two white policemen came in and Rosa Parks asked them ‘why do you all push us around?’

The police officer replied and said ‘I don’t know, but the law is the law and you’re under arrest.

And that was the entirety of the Term Paper.

The Professor that exposed this fraud was stripped of her Supervisory Title and subsequently left the University of North Carolina where the fraud occurred. And the UNC pinky swears that this sort of thing doesn’t happen anymore.

No wonder the Obama Regime has targeted college athletes for unionization.

Explaining the Derangement of the Progressive Left

It seems Jeff and I have been doing more than a few posts lately cataloguing the angry derangement of the left. All of this anger, shrillness, violent pathology, intolerance, rage, and rejection of logic coming from those who claim to be the most peceaful, tolerant, and rational members of society creates a paradox. How can a progressive claim to be rationale, and yet consistently favor discredited and unsustainable economic policies? How can a progressive claim to be tolerant, yet demand that all contrary opinion be shouted down and dissidents be jailed? How can a progressive claim to believe all races are equal, but demand that blacks and hispanics be treated as inferiors that need to be condescended to and acccommodated because they just can’t be expected to perform as well as white people if all are treated equally?  And the greatest paradox of all; how are progressive leftists so blind to their own contradictions and hypocrisy?

(Progressive Leftist: “Um, because You’re a RACIST!!!”)

John C. Wright Attempts to explain:

The theory must explain, first, the honest decency of the modern liberals combined with their astonishing indifference, nay, hostility to facts, common sense, and evidence; second, it must explain their high self-esteem (or, to be blunt, their pathological narcissism) combined not merely with an utter lack of accomplishment, but with their utter devotion to destructiveness, a yearning to ruin everything they touch; third, it must explain their sanctimoniousness combined with their applause, praise, support, and tireless efforts to spread all perversions (especially sexual), moral decay, vulgarity, and every form of desecration; fourth, their pretense of intellectual superiority combined with their notorious mental fecklessness; fifth, it must explain both their violence and their pacifism; sixth, the theory must explain why they hate the very things they should love most; seventh, the theory must explain why they are incapable of comprehending an honest disagreement or any honorable foe.

The essay attempts to arrive at this theory, and as such, has to cover a lot of ground, and uses a lot of big words and philosophical concepts that would be utterly lost on the typical progressive Obama-voter. But it sort of comes down to this.

How can anyone continue to be a Leftist for a week, much less for a lifetime?

The answer, allow me to remind the patient reader, grows out of their theory. Again, their theory of knowledge is that there is no knowledge, no truth, only bigoted opinion. The only way to avoid bigotry is to avoid judgment and the use of reason. Avoiding reason necessitates a theory of morality that denies cause and effect. No vice causes loss, no virtue causes happiness. Hence life is a random roulette wheel. If there are no vices and virtues, not even the intellectual virtues of honest thinking, then no independent thought is desired or permitted. Instead, all thoughts are determined by social cues. Thought is collective.

The whole point of Liberal theory from start to finish is to form earplugs to smother the ringing of that alarm clock called reality.

The Leftists are people who abandon their innate intelligence and moral stature and who  deliberately make themselves to be stupider than average, less moral and upright and decent than average, who at once combine the worst features of a self-deceived fool and a self-deceiving conniving con-man. The only thing that saves them from the constant pain of the dentist drill of their conscience, the constant clamor of their wretched self-esteem telling them that they do not deserve to live, the only thing, indeed, keeping them alive, is their false and inflated sense of sanctimony.

Progressive Leftist Mozilla Employees Accuse CEO of Thoughtcrime; Demand Resignation

Mozilla CEO Brandon Eich has a political opinion that employees disagree with. Therefore, he must be punished.

Some employees at Mozilla, the non-profit organization behind the Firefox browser, are calling on new CEO Brendan Eich to resign.

Mozilla workers are upset with Eich because he supported Proposition 8 and donated to the politicians who backed it.

Prop 8 was a Californian ballot-proposition banning same-sex marriage. It was officially rejected in February 2012.

Those who have a different opinion than the Progressive Left must be punished… because tolerance.

Notes from the Angry, Stupid, Progressive Left

Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs,Post 9-11 America

The angry, deranged children of the left have been busy this week. In addition to turning hatred-fueled vitriol on a black Republican for leaving the plantation, going nanners over Stephen Colbert’s satirical tweet and the use of the term “homosexuals” to describe homosexuals, yet another call for Climate Change skeptics to be arrested and tried as heretics, and throwing a hissy-fit over America’s Single Most Important Issue — Infant Circumcision — the progressive left found some other occasions to behave consistently within expectations.

Progressive Talk-Radio Host Mike Malloy threatened to murder NRA Board Members:

“The NRA, which they’re behind this of course, they want guns everywhere….I would like to invite one of the NRA board members, and I’ll be armed, let’s just get this over with, OK? Come on down to Georgia and I’ll be packing heat and you be packing heat or whether you want to or not, I don’t give a damn, it’s up to you. And you come, meet me someplace, and all of sudden, see, we have stand your ground here, and all of a sudden I’m going to feel real…threatened by you! And I will shoot you! If I feel threatened. The law says I can. Ha ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha ha!”

And, in what was obviously a bid to get a spot on Bill Maher’s show, angry, bitter, progressive leftist feminist and alleged “comedian” Laura Levites called for all conservative Christian males to be castrated.  And her fellow bitter, feminist “comedian” and Daily Show Producer Liz Winstead demonstrated complete ignorance of the human reproductive system.

So, the Government needs to force employers to pay for women’s contraceptives and abortificants because every time a woman has unprotected sex, she gets pregnant. Got it?

Also, MSDNC Host Chris Matthews said that former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld “looks like a car bomber.

Just another typical week in the Reality-Based Community of Enlightened Tolerance.

 

Harry Reid Blames Obamacare Failure on “You Dumb Hicks Who Don’t Know How to Internet.”

Democrats Tacitly Concede Their Policies Are Unpopular and Ineffective

Posted by V the K at 11:20 am - March 28, 2014.
Filed under: 2014 Elections

The Democrat Party has chosen an “Emmanuel Goldstein” electoral strategy for 2014: Focus all of their hate and vitriol on two Americans who use their fortune to promote freedom and opportunity, and hope to stir up enough hate to turn out the base; even if they have to lie about it .

In making the Koch Brothers their central issue, Democrats are conceding they have nothing else to run on. Their much touted strategy of making the 2014 election about “income inequality” has fallen flat. Obamacare is an albatross despite their best efforts to spin it. Climate Change and Gun Control are losers for the Democrats. The Republicans, to the dismay of conservatives, have neutralized the “obstructionist” and Amnesty issues by playing ball with the Democrats. There’s still the old reliable “War on Women,” which still works on bitter spinster feminists, but they were going to vote Democrat anyway.

They have to run on hate. They’ve got nothing else, and hate has gotten them this far.

By the way, Michelle Malkin sees a strategy in the recent run of Democrats being charged and indicted for corruption, she thinks Obama’s hyper-politicized Department of Justice will wait until October, and then indict a bunch of Republicans (the Ted Stevens gambit) to stain the party in advance of the election. The DOJ will then point to the earlier indictments of Democrats and claim it absolves them of partisan motives. Also, going after a handful of Democrat little fish is itself intended as a prophylactic against charges that the Department has been politicized.

University Issues “Mel Gibson-Style” Apology to Women Assaulted by Feminist Professor

In a follow-up to the incident in which a University of California Feminist Professor assaulted a teenage girl who was advocating an anti-abortion position in the university’s “Free Speech Zone,” the University has issued a fauxpology.

In a long-winded 1,000-word letter that reads more like a diatribe than a mea culpa, University of California at Santa Barbara Vice Chancellor Michael Young eventually conceded that women’s studies professor Mireille Miller-Young should not have snatched a pro-life sign from 16-year-old Thrin Short, giving backhanded praise to the framers of the Constitution.

“Our Founding Fathers – all white men of privilege, some even slave owners – got it right when designing the First Amendment of the Constitution,” Young wrote in an open memo to the student body.

The price of freedom of speech, Young was enlightened enough to acknowledge, is that students, staff and faculty must tolerate “outside groups and individuals coming here to promote an ideology, to promulgate particular beliefs (at times extreme beliefs), or simply to create discord that furthers a certain personal agenda.””Some passionately believe in their causes, while others peddle hate and intolerance with less-than-noble aims,” Young added, mentioning “evangelical types.”

Translation: “We’re sorry we violated the free speech rights of you racist, bigoted, stupid, invisible-magical-sky-god-worshipping hatemongers; rights that were granted to you by dirty, rotten white slaveowners.”

It is reminiscent of the apology Mel Gibson gave after making anti-semitic comments.

The Left Turns its Race-Hysteria on One of its Own

Stephen Colbert has been accused of racism by humorless leftists who 1. Didn’t get the joke and 2. Are perfectly fine when this sort of humor is directed at conservatives (which, technically, it was but in their deranged race-hysteria, the left can’t figure that out).

“I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever,” “The Colbert Report” Twitter wrote Thursday.

The joke was taken from a bit on Wednesday night’s “The Colbert Report,” parodying Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and his launch of the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation in light of controversy over the team name. Taken out of context, however, many Twitter users saw the joke as racist, and launched a #CancelColbert campaign that quickly became a trending topic.

Believe it or not, there was a time when entertainment wasn’t subject to the outrage of puritanical leftist race-fascists.

Oh, and also, Kobe Bryant is also being targeted for a boycott by African-American activists, because he committed the unpardonable (for an African-American) sin of thinking for himself:

When McGrath asked Bryant’s opinion on the Miami Heat’s show of solidarity with Trayvon Martin in the now iconic “hoodie” photo, the LA Lakers star stated:

“I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American,” Bryant said. “That argument doesn’t make any sense to me. So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”

Oh, and I almost forgot about this: An editor of Ebony magazine beclowned herself by calling Juan Williams’s son a “white dude,” and then continued to beclown herself in offering the “I’m sorry I mistook you for a white person” defense.

Left-wing economists: They’re that stupid

Zero Hedge remembers how the Great Housing Bubble of 2003-7 was something Paul Krugman had called for:

Before you say “But that was in 2002!”, consider more recent examples of Krugman stupidity, like his calling in 2012 for the government to boost (supposedly) the economy by faking an invasion of space aliens. The Krugtron quote from Time’s account:

“If we discovered that space aliens were planning to attack, and we needed a massive build-up to counter the space alien threat, and inflation and budget deficits took secondary place to that, this slump would be over in 18 months,” Krugman says…

A second instance, from PuffHo’s account:

“So if we could get something that could cause the government to say, ‘Oh, never mind those budget things; let’s just spend and do a bunch of stuff.’ So my fake threat from space aliens is the other route,” Krugman said before a laughing crowd. “I’ve been proposing that.”

So he said it more than once; only half-joking at best. The man loves his malinvestment.*

(*Borrow-and-spend that creates market bubbles, overbuilding, leaf-raking, wars or other activity that is economically inefficient, or useless, or even destructive.)

Related: It struck me that one way you can tell a left-liberal is: government spending always sounds like a good idea, to them. Should government spend, to stimulate the economy? Check. Spend more on education, so people will (supposedly) be more educated? You betcha. It never occurs to the left-liberal that government just might be incompetent at most things. So that the proposed spending would do nothing at all – or would even make things worse, as it only subsidizes incompetence. For example: Subsidizing an incompetent system of educators. The possibility just doesn’t cross a liberal’s mind.

Anti-Gun California Democrat Charged with Illegal Gun-Running

Democrat California State Senator Leland Yee has been a strong advocate for every gun control bill the far left People’s Republic of California has passed. Now, in addition to bribery and corruption, Senator Yee has been charged for illegally importing and selling the same guns he would outlaw to his law-abiding constituents.

The affidavit charges that the $2 million worth of weapons to have been secreted into the country from the Philippines included rocket launchers and machine guns, some of which Yee himself had fired while on Mindanao. A portion of the weapons Yee conspired to bring into the U.S. through New Jersey were to have been forwarded on to North Africa via Sicily.

Or, maybe he’s just following the example of his party’s leader; making it illegal for law abiding citizens to own guns while supplying guns to criminal drug gangs.

Update: Oh, my, it seems like Sen. Yee also offered to set up an arms deal with Islamic rebels for $2 Million in cash.

In the video after the break, Senator Yee explains how he wants to keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens. “To protect the general public is my priority.”

When pandering to a group of people so pathetically insecure and high-strung they consider their lives and loves meaningless without a stamp of approval from the Government, it never hurts to go full Drama Queen.

Two years after getting ahead of President Barack Obama in saying he supported gay marriage, Biden on Saturday called LGBT workplace discrimination “close to barbaric” and “bizarre” in a speech to the Human Rights Campaign.

Waking Up on the Wrong Side of History

Posted by V the K at 11:36 am - March 26, 2014.
Filed under: History

Like Jonah Goldberg, I am also curious about this business of “Our opponents are on the wrong side of history!” which has become the preferred schoolyard taunt of the arrogant left. Supporters of gay marriage have taunted opponents with it. Supporters of Amnesty have taunted opponents with it. Democrat Senator Chris Dodd, back in the Reagan Era, said that those who opposed Soviet Communism were on the wrong side of history. And, more recently, both Mr. Obama and his Secretary of State, Mr. Kerry, have taunted Russian President Putin with it.

So, my question is, if progressive leftists know how history is going to work out, why did they not use this knowledge to predict the massive failure of Obamacare, Obama’s economic policies, and Obama’s foreign policies? Or is it just that complete and total disaster happens to be the *right side* of history?
