From Today’s “Skip School for Gun Control” Rally.
And the Westboro Baptists, doing their usual thing.
Notice any casual similarities?
Pretentious twit laments that Europe is so much better than America because hardly anybody works, and most people get to spend their time in posh cafes sipping coffee and reading.
Whenever I go back and forth between Europe and the States, a curious set of facts strikes me.
In London, Paris, Berlin, I hop on the train, head to the cafe — it’s the afternoon, and nobody’s gotten to work until 9am, and even then, maybe not until 10 — order a carefully made coffee and a newly baked croissant, do some writing, pick up some fresh groceries, maybe a meal or two, head home — now it’s 6 or 7, and everyone else has already gone home around 5 — and watch something interesting, maybe a documentary by an academic, the BBC’s Blue Planet, or a Swedish crime-noir. I think back on my day and remember the people smiling and laughing at the pubs and cafes.
In New York, Washington, Philadelphia, I do the same thing, but it is not the same experience at all. I take broken down public transport to the cafe — everybody’s been at work since 6 or 7 or 8, so they already look half-dead — order coffee and a croissant, both of which are fairly tasteless, do some writing, pick up some mass-produced groceries, full of toxins and colourings and GMOs, even if they are labelled “organic” and “fresh”, all forbidden in Europe, head home — people are still at work, though it’s 7 or 8 — and watch something bland and forgettable, reality porn, decline porn, police-state TV. I think back on my day and remember how I didn’t see a single genuine smile — only hard, grim faces, set against despair, like imagine living in Soviet Leningrad.
Everything I consume in the States is of a vastly, abysmally lower quality. Every single thing. The food, the media, little things like fashion, art, public spaces, the emotional context, the work environment, and life in general.
First of all… New York, DC, and Philadelphia are basically the branch offices of Hell on Earth, so no wonder nobody there ever smiles. Second, Umair Haque is a pretentious little bitch. Who TF cares what you think, pretentious little bitch.
There’s this thing that the middle-aged white women who run our culture want to catch on. It’s a Danish concept called hygge. It’s pronounced Hoo-Gah, so right off the bat you see it isn’t even spelled properly. What it means is, being snug in your home reading and burning candles, or maybe having a few friends over to drink tea or cocoa by candlelight, cocooning yourselves in heavy sweaters and blankets and feeling great because that’s what life is all about. And supposedly, hygge is this really terrific thing that makes Danes and Scandinavians happy and wonderful.
It isn’t. It’s pretty much the only activity you have left when the Government is confiscating 60% or more of your income to fund the welfare state (plus a 25% Value-Added-Tax on all goods and services). You can’t do anything fun because you don’t have enough money. So you are left with the lifestyle socialist white women would want you to have; and now they are telling you that you should enjoy it. Who needs fun stuff like video games or snowmobiles, when you can be drinking cocoa under a blanket watching Swedish crime-noir or British documentaries.
If Scandianavian countries are ‘the happiest places in the world’ as leftists contend, why do they have the highest rates of anti-depressant usage in the world?
Some expressed doubt that Lt. Rapone, the America-Hating, Communist Loving fan of racist, homophobic mass murderer Che Guevara was for real. He apparently is. His inspiration was apparently the revered left-wing traitor Chelsea Manning.
In a Reddit post regarding Manning, Rapone spelled out some of his motivations for remaining in the military and exactly what he wanted to accomplish while serving as a second lieutenant in the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. Those motivations included Manning’s decision to leak national security documents to WikiLeaks.
“I’m currently an infantry officer at Ft. Drum, NY assigned to the same brigade that she was while enlisted,” Rapone wrote in a post. “Every single day I think of the contradictions of being a communist while in this organization, and her courage and tenacity gives me strength to continue the long march through the institutions.”
So the moral of the story is that I guess that even if a story of leftist hatred toward America and our ideals of liberty and freedom seems too outrageous to be true… there’s at least a pretty good chance that it probably is.
Left-Wing Icon Valerie Plame… who became a left-wing icon when a left-wing Deep State operative (Richard Armitage) outed her (Not Really) as a CIA Agent and blamed the Bush Administration… says… well, read for yourself.
America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars
Gee, didn’t Mel Gibson get in heap big trouble over something like this?
Between their embrace of street violence as a legitimate police tactic, the Obama Regime’s use of the state security apparatus to spy on political opponents, and the embrace of Stormfront-like “Zionist Occupied Government” rhetoric… hasn’t the American Left become frighteningly Nazi-like itself?
Update: I did not know this.
[Plame is] also a big supporter and fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, and is on the board of Ploughshares, a key part of Ben Rhodes’/Obama’s “echo chamber” to give Iran the nuclear bomb so that it can wipe Israel off the map:
Airstrip One demonstrates so much democratic socialist failure. First, they outlawed guns, and now only criminals own guns. Then, they moved to outlaw knives, even kitchen knives, but stabbings continued. Homicide rates are increasing for both gun and knife attacks, which is exactly what politically incorrect people said would happen when law-abiding people are disarmed to the advantage of criminals. (See also, Chicago.)
The other form of violence that is increasingly popular, especially in diverse, multicultural cities, is acid attacks. Throwing acid in the faces of people, especially women, has long been a thing in the fetid third-world cesspools from which Britain and other western countries import the majority of their cheap labor force and Labor-voting voter base. You know it’s bad when news media start publishing “What to do in case of an acid attack” articles.
But don’t worry, Air Strip One’s Government is on the case and is moving to outlaw acid.
If you missed it: last weekend, beloved left-wing Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour called for “jihad” (her word) against President Trump.
The Left promptly fell over themselves, not to denounce her use of the term; but rather to denounce anyone so bigoted as to think that the word could have a violent connotation.
Sarsour provided the necessary fig leaf, by bracketing her call for jihad with blather about how Peaceful Mohammed was totes about Speaking Truth To Power. But imagine if, during the Obama administration, a far-right Christian activist – the type who advocates Christian Reconstruction, say, and who had excused an abortion clinic bombing – had called defiantly for “holy war” against President Obama. The Left would have called for that activist’s imprisonment.
We live in a world, remember, where the Left thinks that using a crosshairs metaphor in your election advertising is direct incitement to violence; as is an Internet joke (meme) in which a corporate logo is being pounded on.
But calling for “holy war”? (which is what “jihad” means) No problem…provided the call is left-wing and/or Islamist; that is, directed against America, its President and/or the Right. Once more, Islam and the Left are allies.
22 year old Otto Warmbier died today 17 months after being tortured and imprisoned by the communist regime of North Korea. We can criticize his foolishness for going to North Korea in the first place, but what he suffered he clearly did not deserve. Nor did he deserve to be attacked by the left, who claimed to the contrary that he got what deserved for his “white privilege.” (Part of a disturbing trend on the progressive left toward the dehumanization of other people based on their perceived “privilege.”)
Torturing and murdering people is what socialist and communist regimes do. It was also a favorite pastime of Communist mass-murder Che Guevara, whose visage can be seen on T-shirts and banners wherever “Democratic Socialists” gather to discuss how they would like to run America, and what to do with people who, in their view, do not deserve their “privilege.”
Protesters campaigning against Sharia Law were met with a number of counter-demonstrations on Saturday…
Sharia is the law of Islam…The rules of sharia come from Quranic commandments and the hadiths…Sharia significantly restricts the freedom of women and allows for extreme punishments for violations such as adultery, blasphemy, and apostasy. [ed: and homosexuality] Sharia is the basis of laws in Islamic countries, both Sunni and Shia.
A press release from the ACT! for America website reads: “This is a march against Sharia law and for human rights…”
However, many marches were disrupted by counter-demonstrators, who accused participants of “Islamaphobia”…
The article makes clear that the counter-demonstrators were lefties in masks, many associated with Antifa. One threw urine on Lauren Southern (of The Rebel Media).
It follows that Antifa protestors favor Sharia and want it to replace U.S. law. Which of course is based on the Constitution; which Antifa therefore must also oppose.
If it isn’t so, it’s up to Antifa to clarify it – by denouncing Sharia. In the meantime: Gays, women, and patriotic Americans everywhere ought to find it alarming.
Dateline Airstrip One: “Gays Against Sharia” is a group of gays in Britain who don’t fancy living under ISIS-style sharia law (what with the beheadings, stonings, defenestrations, female genital mutilations and other minor annoyances). Gays Against Sharia plans to hold a march in opposition to Islamic Supremacy. Pro-Sharia, Left-Wing gays who automatically side with the enemies of Western Civilization, are planning a counter-protest to demonstrate their willing subjugation to their new masters.
LGBT activists have reacted with fury, insisting the event is nothing more than the cynical hijacking of gay rights by the “far right” as a cover for Islamophobia. Two groups, Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants, and Action for Trans Health, are arranging a counter-protest against the march.
“As queers, we know what it’s like for right-wingers to hate us – so we won’t be divided like this.”
Right, because it’s better to be murdered by Islamic Supremacists who hate you than shunned by right-wingers who “hate” you.
The first step to solving a problem for real, is: Naming it honestly.
As Mark Steyn points out (hat tip V), our leftie-globalist-academic Superiors want us to believe that “sowing division” is what’s wrong with the endless stream of mass murders by Muslim terrorists. Because the desirable opposite is “unity”, led by those same Superiors.
Thus, they subtly equate their critics with Muslim terrorists. If, say, you’re a free-market populist who rejects the elite consensus, you’re as bad as a Muslim mass murderer. Because you’re also “sowing division”.
It’s similar to how the Left represents “hate speech” (i.e., criticism or rejection of the Left) as a form of violence, unprotected by the First Amendment. Under such insane terms, the Left is allowed to attack you with physical violence because they are only protecting themselves from the “violence” that you were about to think, or say.
Re: the London attacks, British media says they were done by “men of Mediterranean coloring”. It has a courtroom precision to it, which is nice, but also don’t say Muslim.
London’s Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, did at least call them “cowardly terrorists”. And Prime Minister Theresa May slammed the “evil ideology of Islamist extremism” – but then went back to calling for “unity”, plus Internet censorship. As opposed to, say, deporting the UK’s known Muslim radicals and improved vetting of Muslim immigrants, or better enforcement of the UK’s existing laws against inciting violence.
It’s beyond question that the murderers were doing it for Allah. One can only hope that the good people of the UK will wake up.
