The Left Is a Fascist Cult

Item Number 1: The Parkland Scooby Gang (“Let’s unmask the reveal villain … surprise… it’s the NRA!” “And we would have gotten away with it if it weren’t for you shrill, androgynous kids!”) has decided to urge their fellow party members to wear flashy armbands so they can recognize each other. Soon to follow, goose-stepping lessons and snappy black uniforms.

Item Number 2: A former Executive Editor of the New York Times (the foreign-owned newspaper that seeks to influence American elections) admits to keeping an Obama fetish-totem with her at all times.

It’s easy to look at what’s happening in Washington DC and despair. That’s why I carry a little plastic Obama doll in my purse. I pull him out every now and then to remind myself that the United States had a progressive, African American president until very recently. Some people find this strange, but you have to take comfort where you can find it in Donald Trump’s America. 

She’s an Operating Thetan in the Church of Obamatology.

By the way, you have heard, of course, that Cult Leader Obama is being offered millions to do a show or something for Netflix? Because someone had to go an ask, “Come on, what could be worse than Chelsea Handler” while someone else was holding a beer.

  1. There are more tears to come for America’s defeated radical Left. People who have meant harm to their societies & we’re vanquished historically do not dwell in reality. It’s never wise to turn your back on them.

    Neutering is a good idea, especially when they’ve done half the job on themselves. Bleak & empty lives to end in Hellfire. Sad.

  2. What kind of show on Netflix?

    What’s My Line?
    Contestants try and guess what real-world job (if any) a Liberal politician may have held.

    When is the Price Right?
    People attempt to deduce what their health care costs might actually be.

    Meet the Press
    An hour-long Obama love fest. US residents required to watch.

    Obamas move back to Hawai’i; are never heard from again. (OK. That one I made up).

  4. Because nothing speaks fascism more loudly than taking Tinker v Des Moines as your starting idea–because armbands are strictly a tool of fascists (because … squirrels!), and this happens to be the sister of one of the survivors of the School shooting. Awesomeness, J. Woods. Lovely, just lovely, V the K.

    Um. . .no. He wasn’t there, he didn’t see anything, and he was never in any danger.
    He was in a building across campus hiding in a closet and making an anti gun video on his phone.

  8. Well Steven, I would love to know what counts as a “survivor” for you in this instance? If you are hiding in place as part of your school’s response plan, in a locked room on campus, with an active shooter going about his mayhem on that campus, at what point will you label people survivors of a mass shooting? What criteria are you using to delegitimize this person’s experience?

  10. The only thing different in Donald Trump’s America than it was in Obama’s America is that in O’s A they bent over backwards to love everything he did, while in T’s A they bend over backwards to hate every single thing he does, no matter what it is. He could cure cancer tomorrow and they would still find a way to say he was wrong and evil. If Obamacare did it, they would raise churches in his name and pray to him. It’s simply ludicrous.

    Cas, no, his experience shouldn’t be diminished, but these children are being exploited by the left for a political agenda. The people using them could care less about them and when their usefulness to the agenda has diminished, they will drop the kids like a person who trips with a cake and leaves the mess for someone else to clean.

    Comment by TADFORD — March 11, 2018 @ 1:13 am - March 11, 2018

  11. Cas – To be a survivor of a tragedy he would have to actually be in the location where it occurred, actually see it happening, and to have been endangered by the event.
    Anyone who could calmly make a propaganda video while safely tucked away in a safe space away from the mayhem didn’t “survive” shit.

  13. Tinker, really?

    Judge Fortas for the majority: In order to justify the suppression of speech, the school officials must be able to prove that the conduct in question would “materially and substantially interfere” with the operation of the school.

    Judge Black dissenting: The First Amendment does not provide the right to express any opinion at any time. Because the appearance of the armbands distracted students from their work, they detracted from the ability of the school officials to perform their duties, so the school district was well within its rights to discipline the students.

    As to Supreme Court decisions: They are case by case and instructive to the lower courts.

    Tinker was about protesting the war in Vietnam. It was pure political action which was meant to sway, but not intimidate. Even Fortas said that if it disrupted the school, it could be stopped.

    The fine point of Tinker boils down to whether the school authorities have to wait for the disruption to occur. That is typical of relativistic psychobabble.

    The kids at Parkland are tying the armband to the NRA and gun restriction. High school is one big popularity battleground on its best of days. Anti-NRA armbands are meant to stifle speech, not encourage it.

    The armbands are meant to distract students from their work and to interfere with the ability of school officials to perform their duties by agenda setting and culture manipulation.

    Tinker certainly did not signal that any and every student has the constitutional right to promote a cause of any sort within a school population.

    There is a huge difference between yelling “fire” in a crowded theater and yelling “movie” in a crowded fire station.

    The Parkland kids were subjected to the horrors of a school shooter. Their problems are far greater than anything that political activism can do for them.

    Furthermore, it would be dishonest and disingenuous to pretend that the Parkland students have not been herded up and manipulated by adult political activists who are using them as useful victims as long as they can squeeze some notoriety out of them.

  14. Keeping a fetish doll in the form of Obama on your body is in the same league as wearing a Che T-shirt until it shreds.

    Che: “To execute a man we don’t need proof of his guilt. We only need proof that its necessary to execute him. Its that simple.”

    Progressives have to win, win, win because they don’t have principles that can spread and bloom. “Everything from the state and only from the state” is not an appealing motto. There are those who oppose such thinking and it always becomes necessary to round them up and silence them.

  15. The true survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland FL are those that were taken to the hospital with wounds and lived to tell about it, like the one student who is still in the hospital and recently announced lawsuits against the school district and the incompetent sheriff’s office. A few others are observers; the rest are bystanders. It’s like calling all the people who were on the Upper East and Upper West sides of Manhattan on September 11, 2001 ‘survivors’. They may have been affected by the event, but other than seeing smoke and flames in real time, the event only impacted them in a benign way, compared to the first responders and the people who were fleeing the scene and running uptown on that day.

    After the tweet by James Woods and fellow student Kyle Kashuv, the sister of David “Media” Hogg walked back her armband project a bit, but I’m sure they will appear in some form at the upcoming rallies. The online world has also noted the eerie physical resemblance between David Hogg and a young Joesph Goebbels.

  17. Re the woman that carries the Obama doll as some sort of talisman – the Founders would turn in their graves. Their intent was that pols be public servants (in the real meaning, not the current make-yourself-rich meaning), not deities or royal persons to be worshipped.

    Given the very, very long list of government screw-ups (the FL shooting comes to mind) and government atrocities, people put way too much faith in government and its employees.

    Of course, as lefties see government as a weapon against people they don’t like, it’s a feature, not a bug.

  19. @18 VtK: I saw the Obama doll story yesterday along with a retweet sent by a woman who uses some sort of battery-operated appliance on her person while savoring the lament of the men she denies the pleasure of knowing her.

    For some reason, I wondered if the appliance was designed to look like that doll.

  20. Technically, I “Survived” a school shooting at UAF campus when I was a sophomore. I didn’t see or hear anything, and I only heard about it days later, but I was on campus that day.

    The offending student got as far as pointing a gun at someone and was immediately tackled, then held at gunpoint by another student. No injuries and no fatalities. So, it never really made more than local news.

    Comment by Karen — March 11, 2018 @ 4:40 pm - March 11, 2018

  21. Yes, Heliotrope, Tinker, really.
    “The fine point of Tinker boils down to whether the school authorities have to wait for the disruption to occur.”

    Uh, no. The issue is whether students have protected 1st Amendment rights. They do. They have limits. You would have to show why armbands today are any more disruptive than the 7 justices found them not to be, back in 1969. Good luck with that. As for your “any cause” comment, you might want to show that protesting society’s inability to pass gun laws designed to increase student safety is nonsensical and fits within this claim of yours. Again, good luck with that.

    Here is the bottom line: Tinker had a vested political and personal interest in protesting the Vietnam War. Her friends and family could be in harm’s way in just a few short years–she had “skin in the game.” Hogg has “skin in the game”–that comes with being in lock down in a school with an active shooter. If you (and others) want to minimize this, be my guest. He and his sister have “skin in the game” as does any student who goes to school and has the small but real risk that this day, shall be different from all other school days.

    You would prefer children to be seen and not heard–even if they have legitimate concerns. Adults have done a crappy job of looking out for their interests in this issue, so why are you shocked and surprised that they might organize. Sure, adults have gotten on the ban wagon, but I would like to know why you think it is impossible (apparently) for students to organize–I would point out that these kids have parents as well–and they would very likely definitely help with ideas, resources, and organization (they too have “skin in the game”–though perhaps parents are the individuals you refer to when you say that these students have “been herded up and manipulated by adult political activists who are using them as useful victims as long as they can squeeze some notoriety out of them.”

    Comment by Jec — March 12, 2018 @ 9:45 am - March 12, 2018

  24. Uh, no. (1.) The issue is whether students have protected 1st Amendment rights. (2.) They do. (3.) They have limits. (4.) You would have to show why armbands today are any more disruptive than the 7 justices found them not to be, back in 1969. (5.)Good luck with that.

    (1.) There is no issue with whether students have protected 1st Amendment rights.
    (2.) Yes and no. Students outside of school have different 1st Amendment rights than when they are inside of school. However, if their outside of school rights are aimed at the school, then everything changes. (3.) Yes and no: See # 2. (4.) Armbands are not disruptive any more than guns kill. People who wear armbands may be disruptive and people who fire guns may kill a person.

    Now that the logic is clarified, the issue is whether students have protected 1st Amendment rights to conduct a political protest within the school setting or that will negatively affect the school setting.

    Certainly, if a student is prevented from praying in the cafeteria over his lunch, is would be passing strange that he would be allowed to wear an armband in protest of the NRA.

    You liberals have dragged your silly piety into the high dudgeon of plastic relativism. “Dudgeon” is offense, resentment and malice over some infraction of pious righteousness. Hating prayer and loving abortion or loathing the NRA is all relative and contradictory to a single guiding principle.

    The Supreme Court is generally loathe to jump on board with the game of political correctness speech.

    Your reading of Tinker is conveniently subject to your tunnel vision. Here is the American Bar Association summary:

    …the Supreme Court looked unfavorably on the clear viewpoint discrimination—the school district was focusing on punishment for one side of the Vietnam debate—and the fact that the school officials’ punishment of the five students who wore black armbands was “based upon their fear of a disturbance from the wearing of the armbands.” No actual disturbance occurred.

    The Court declared that a public school might only restrict student speech when it has actual knowledge that may reasonably lead the authorities to “forecast substantial disruption of or material interference with school activities.”

    The silent, passive expression of opinion, where no actual disruption of the school’s educational environment occurred, was not accompanied “by any disorder or disturbance” and did “not concern speech or action that intrudes upon the work of the schools or the rights of other students.”

    The Tinker standard, which requires that the school reasonably forecast a substantial disruption of the educational environment, forms the basis of student speech law to date.

    Through subsequent decisions, however, the Supreme Court has chipped away at the maxim that the school “must be able to show that its action was caused by something more than a mere desire to avoid the discomfort and unpleasantness that always accompany an unpopular viewpoint.”

    Now, playing the liberal game of “relativism” we can readily “surmise” that a student body traumatized and recovering from a mass shooting is not in need of a debate concerning gun control as a focused means for recovering from the trauma.

    The problem with amateurs citing Supreme Court decisions as holy writ is that all Supreme Court decision are relative to the specific incident involved in the case and the generalizations and over-generalizations drawn from the decision moving forward.

    Not being a lawyer permitted to argue before the Supreme Court does not permit you play one on an internet blog.

    The American Bar Association advises:

    If the speech does not constitute a “true threat,” or an objectively reasonable person would not interpret the speech as a serious expression of intent to cause a present or future harm and if no substantial disturbance occurs on campus, under Tinker the scales may tip back toward the student. However, the reality is that the threat of school violence—from what America has seen from Columbine to Newton over the last two decades—is a compelling concern for administrators. Courts have generally shown more deference to administrators confronted with threatened violence or a perceived threat. A court’s choosing not to be a Monday morning quarterback on violence issues shows that while the law may be on the students’ side, the policy is not always in their favor.

    I am not a lawyer and I don’t play one on the internet. But it is patently clear that the American Bar Association is perplexed and cautious about whether a 13 year old Jr. High girl such as Mary Beth Tinker back in 1965 is free to wave a political cause issue in the faces of fellow students in the culture of 2018.

    Today, kids have smartphones, computers, Facebook, Snapchat, etc. to communicate, posture, bully and target. It is now commonplace for schools to monitor what students do on-line from their homes that might cause a reaction and disruption in the school.

    We have come to expect the school to monitor a Nikolas Cruz type student and take “special notice and caution” about his actions. His picture surrounded by weapons on social media is supposed to spur “authorities” into action. That is to say, his picture is not “free speech” and benign to those who hate guns or those who are concerned with school safety. But, the picture has not actually killed anyone.

    Relativism is such a stupid form of “principle” that it makes otherwise sane people crazy.

    Tinker, really? Only if you are a one dimensional “thinker.”

  29. Hmm Heliotrope,
     
    For clarification: “if a student is prevented from praying in the cafeteria over his lunch…” I am sorry, I am unaware of any SCOTUS decision that favoured this approach. Can you share with me the basis for this claim?

    And when you chat about “amateur lawyers,” “relativism,” “Holy Writ,” and “context” I can’t help but notice that you replicate the exact same issues you critique in my approach by privileging the “chipping away” of the decision. One thing—does Tinker still provide a precedent for the law we currently have? Uh, yes. So who is bending himself into a pretzel to avoid the obvious… yes, that would be you Heliotrope. It is not “Holy Writ,” just the interpreted law. Maybe the Justices will pass as constitutional a law more to your liking in future that gets rid of Tinker, so that students will be seen and not heard. I hope not. Part of being an engaged and effective citizen is in paying attention to what SCOTUS says and why. And protesting issues relevant and important to one’s life. Except you think that is a bad idea because … squirrels. How are these students to become effective in engaged citizens? No idea, given your point of view—but they will be obedient and compliant citizens. And that is an idea I think you like Heliotrope. 

    Related, you seem to be quite the lawyer yourself when it comes to critiquing decisions you don’t like (as for many here)—e.g., Roe V. Wade?
     
    So—how much of a disruption is this exercise of student 1st Amendment rights? That is a judgement call—I agree. But, and you can nod your head here–it is the law of the land–no matter how much “chipping” there is, or how much you want to privilege that aspect of subsequent SCOTUS thinking. You worry that any disruption is bad for schools and could lead to violence. What is your “could” probability wise? I don’t know. The logic you offer is the same as the state offered in Edwards V South Carolina. The Justices rejected that “could” view back then as well, and for good reason. But one justice would agree with you, even there.

    Hi KCRob,
    OK. “Reluctance” OK. One question though–if the majority of Americans favor gun laws that limit availability and these cannot get passed–is that “reluctance”and is it society that is “reluctant” here? A further indulgence–why not say–“inability” in this case?

    Comment by Cas — March 13, 2018 @ 2:08 am - March 13, 2018

  30. The laws that could have stopped this and other school shootings are already in place. What we have done in this country is create an environment where laws are not enforced. Writing laws does not solve a problem or stop bad things from happening if no one is making sure the laws are being followed.

    On another note, I do not imply or assume that the parents of these children desire the press they are getting. Being a teacher myself, and seeing firsthand what liberalism has done to education, I would say their teachers are likely urging them on. It also doesn’t hurt that people with anti-guns agendas, who are supposedly unbiased, such as Anderson Cooper, are plastering these children everywhere and every chance they get. Then there’s the whole making sure teenagers are persuaded to the cause by making every other snap, lol, instagram post, ad infinitum every social platform you can think of, pop up over and over and over…nah…thry’re No exploitation happening there…not a bit

    Silly, goose. Where is it written that SCOTUS has favored or disfavored stopping a kid from praying over his lunch in a school cafeteria?

    How can I be asked to prove something you claim I wrote which I did not write?

    Being unfamiliar in general with events in the United States, you likely have no knowledge of the myriad acts of idiocy that liberals have foisted on the schools in their zeal to drive Christianity from the school house.

    Your ignorance regarding Tinker is palpable. Almost as palpable as your total misunderstanding of the power and scope of Supreme Court decisions. If your ignorance were guide the courts, rulings would be made by computers.
