Why Is There No Alt-Left?

Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Media Complex are attempting to tie Donald Trump (and by extension, *all conservatives* and *all Republicans*) to the “Alt-Right” Fringe; a group they characterize as being pretty much exactly the same as the KKK.

There is no equivalent to the Alt-Right on the Left. There is no fringe racist group that supports the Great Left-Wing Progressive Coalition but embarrasses and is shunned by “respectable” members of the coalition.

The reason for this is simple: The Left welcomes its racist hate groups into the Mainstream of its coalition.

#BlackLivesMatter is a racist Hate Group; they were paraded on stage at the Democrat National Convention. The National Council of La Raza (The Race) is a racist hate group; and their members serve as senior policy advisors to the Democrats on “immigration.” The Muslim Brotherhood is a violent Hate Group; Hillary’s most senior advisor is a member and a former editor of a radical Islamist magazine. The Feminist Movement has become, largely, a cult of man-hatred, but Democrats proudly court the feminist vote and promise them grain from the Federal trough.

There’s no Alt-Left because hatred and extremism are at the core of the progressive movement.

This Is OK Because Hillary’s a Democrat, Right?

If Donald Trump’s most senior advisor and trusted aide had been an assistant editor at a rapidly anti-gay publication (say, the Westboro Baptist Turn-Or-Burn Newsletter) for twelve years, a publication that his aide’s mother and brother were still actively involved in, the progressive gay left and the Democrat Media Complex would have a field day with that, am I right?

I mean, that creep Manafort guy had to resign the Trump campaign because of his past dealings with Russia, right?

But, as usual, the rules don’t apply if you’re a Democrat and your last name is Clinton.

A journalism major at George Washington University, Huma Abedin, 40, was listed as “assistant editor” of the [Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs, which featured radically anti-feminist views and backed strict Islamic laws roundly criticized for oppressing women] from 1996 to 2008, when her name was removed from the staff box and she went to work for Clinton at the State Department.

Typical fare in the publication includes a 1996 piece titled “Women’s Rights Are Islamic Rights,” which argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families.

I guess if that whole selling out State Department favors in return for bribes to the Clinton Global Thingie didn’t bother you, this revelation won’t faze you either. (Huma Abedin was in the middle of that scheme as well.)

It bothers me less that Hillary and Huma are crooks than it does that some 40% of the electorate and 80-90% of the Democrat Party is perfectly fine with that.

I mean, hey, Hillary opened a pickle jar on TV, so she’s obviously totally fit to be president, right?

Also, by the way, someone tried to scale the wall at the Ecuadoran Embassy in London the other night; the place where Julian “Wikileaks” Assange is holed up. He got away before the police could catch him. Interesting, that.

If you’re voting for Hillary Clinton, this is your circus, those are your monkeys.

Different Parties, Different Rules

Obama 2005:  President Bush should have gone to New Orleans after Katrina, and his failure to do so shows his indifference to the suffering of the victims.

“When the people of New Orleans and Gulf Coast extended their hand for help, help was not there. When people looked up from the rooftops, for too long they saw an empty sky. When the winds blew and the flood waters came, we learned for all of our wealth and our power, something wasn’t right with America. We can talk about what happened for a few days in 2005, and we should. We can talk about levies that couldn’t hold, about a FEMA that seem not just incompetent but paralyzed and powerless, about a president who only saw the people from a window on an airplane instead of down here on the ground, trying to provide comfort and aid.”

Obama 2008: The bargain that any president strikes with is, you give me this office and in turn my, fears, doubts, insecurities, foibles, need for sleep, family life, vacations, leisure is gone.” (Yes, Hilariously, King Putt promised he would give up vacation and leisure activities if elected president.) 

Obama 2016: Interrupts his Martha’s Vineyard vacation for a Democrat fundraiser, but not to travel to Louisiana after massive flooding. The Obama Administration, however, has stepped up and ordered relief workers not to engage in racial or other discrimination because that’s of course, the first thing you worry about when thousands of people have lost their homes, jobs, and livelihoods.

“In a 16-page guidance issued Tuesday, the Obama administration, led by the Justice Department, warned Louisiana recipients of federal disaster assistance against engaging in ‘unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency)’”

Obama’s Apologists: The president isn’t going to Louisiana because he “detests theatrical politics.” (Really, they want us to believe the president who staged a photo–op with a bunch of faux-doctors in white lab coats to sell ObamaCare hates theatrical politics.)

Really, though, Obama supporters don’t give a damn about Obama’s response to the disaster, and they never really cared about Bush’s expect to the extent they could use the latter as a political cudgel against him. Leftists care about power, and nothing else

Where’s Hillary?  Can’t do Louisiana, too busy shaking down big donors for money.

Where’s Trump? Oh, he went down to New Orleans with his running mate to check things out and hand out relief supplies. And the Democrat Media Complex has the nerve to caution him against “seeming craven, using crises for political gain.”

One cannot even.

The Wages of Socialism

Bernie Sanders, Socialist Hero and Champion of the Proletariat, just bought himself a $600,000 vacation home. (His third).

The Burlington resident last week plopped down nearly $600,000 on a camp in North Hero.

Sanders’ new waterfront crib has four bedrooms and 500 feet of Lake Champlain beachfront on the east side of the island — facing Vermont, not New York. The Bern will keep his home in Burlington and use the new camp seasonally.

Gee, do you think he will be using this or his other home to shelter homeless transgendered illegal immigrant Muslims? Yeah, neither do I.

Wall Street for Hillary

 I guarantee you, the response of 90% of Democrats will be, “Well, see, this proves Hillary isn’t a Socialist, and Wall Street trusts her to build the economy.”

Are You a ‘Good Gay’

Whatever definition the DNC used to define ‘good gay,’ most of us probably do not qualify.

Also, from the Finance Chair of the DNC. “I love you too. No homo.”

BTW: Have you noted the not-so-subtle shift in media coverage from “What’s in the leaked emails” (Bad for Democrats) to “Who hacked the emails?” (Not as bad for Democrats)?

On Twitter, if you fantasize about beating to death a grieving mother, that’s not a problem (provided the fantasist is a left-wing writer and the grieving mother is a Republican).

But razz a feminist celebrity and Twitter will drop the banhammer on you.

The interesting thing is no where does Twitter cite anything Milo Y. actually said, but they are banning him because the feminist actress complained that other people inspired by Milo were sending her mean tweets and giving her sadfeels.

For the record: YES, Hillary is a criminal

…who sought-and-received such special treatment that now, in her own person, she embodies the most corrupt, disgraceful and dangerous aspects of American political life.

Allen B. West gives a summary:

…here’s what FBI Director Comey said regarding Hillary Clinton and this email server episode:

  • He concluded Hillary was “extremely careless” in handling our nation’s secrets.
  • He admitted no reasonable person could have believed putting these emails on a private server was at all appropriate or acceptable.
  • He admitted 110 emails on the server were classified at the time they were sent — showing Hillary not only lied, but knowingly endangered national security as secretary of state.
  • He admitted Hillary deleted work-related emails before turning them over to the State Department, despite her claims otherwise.
  • And, most shocking, Mr. Comey even admitted it’s likely foreign governments hacked her emails — and our adversaries could know critical secrets about the U.S. government because of Hillary’s actions.

[...]
Consider that just last week, there was a secret, private meeting between former President Bill Clinton and U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch…Over the weekend, quietly, Hillary Clinton visited FBI headquarters and then came out to give an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd — who stated he had inside information there would be no charges. Then…Director Comey announces a press conference — as the pre-flight checks were being conducted on Air Force One, preparing to fly President Obama and Hillary Clinton on a campaign ride to North Carolina…Comey announces no charges, and Air Force One takes off. Barack Obama is flying, on taxpayer dollar, not with someone under criminal investigation — but a recently-exonerated Hillary Clinton. This, Ladies and Gents, is the “policy of political corruption” on full display.
[...]
When Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton stood together on that stage [in North Carolina last weekend], you saw two people who abandoned Americans to die and lied about it.

In short, and even if we leave aside the Benghazi deaths, Hillary Clinton is 100% guilty of crimes of negligence – and obstruction of justice (lying to prevent investigation). She was given a giant pass, for no reason except politics.

David Petraeus, convicted.  Scooter Libby, convicted.  Youtube filmmaker, jailed.  Edward Snowden, charged.  Hillary Clinton, Democratic nominee for President.

Democrat Rape Apologist and Tax Dodger Ends Campaign

Nope. Not Hillary Clinton. Melissa Gilbert (from Little House on the Prairie, yeah *that* Melissa Gilbert) who was running for a congressional seat in Michigan dropped out citing “health problems.”

The “health problems” apparently surfaced after her Republican opponent resorted to the dirty trick of pointing out that she was delinquent in her taxes and quoting her actual words.

Republicans dogged Gilbert’s campaign early by highlighting more than $470,000 in back taxes she owes the Internal Revenue Service and the state of California.

In April, Bishop’s campaign dug up video of a 2009 appearance Gilbert made on “The View” talk show in which she called attempts to sentence filmmaker Roman Polanski for the 1977 rape of a 13-year-old girl “excessive.”

“I think the punishment at this point may be excessive — I don’t know, that’s just my opinion,” Gilbert said.

Days after the video surfaced on YouTube, Gilbert disavowed the comments and apologized, saying “I said something I didn’t mean and don’t believe.”

Yeah, the old “I said it, but I didn’t mean it” defense; that only works for Donald Trump, sweetheart.

The Zuckerberg Personal Data Aggregator Does Not Much Care for Conservatism

The ZPDA has been in the news after an insider reported that its employees had a habit of blacklisting stories of interest to conservatives from its newsfeed, including stories about the IRS scandal, Governor Scott Walker; the murder of Chris Kyle, and other topics.

But it isn’t just the news feed, the ZPDA also censors individual conservative posts.

Starnes’ interest in Facebook censorship may stem from the time he was placed in the Facebook penitentiary. You may want to make sure there are no kids in the room before you go on because the Fox News host’s “horrible” violation was a post mentioning four offensive subjects in the same paragraph. The proper nouns were: Paula Deen, Chick-fil-A, the NRA and Jesus Christ.

“I’m about as politically incorrect as you can get. I’m wearing an NRA ball cap, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, reading a Paula Deen cookbook and sipping a 20-ounce sweet tea while sitting in my Cracker Barrel rocking chair with the Gaither Vocal Band singing ‘Jesus Saves’ on the stereo and a Gideon’s Bible in my pocket. Yes sir, I’m politically incorrect and happy as a June bug.”

Mr. Starnes says he received a message from the Facebook police that said:

“We removed this from Facebook because it violates our Community Standards,” Facebook wrote me. “So you’re temporarily blocked from using this feature.”

OTOH, Pages calling for the destruction of Israel and inciting violence againat Jews? Totes OK.

The Fascist Impulse

Posted by V the K at 9:12 am - April 1, 2016.
Filed under: Democrats & Double Standards

Ever since Democrats decided, way back in the seventies, that ‘the personal is political’ (a horrific philosophy that has been devastating to our body politic), left-wing Democrat politicians have sought to take their personal obsessions, resentments, and grudges and use the power of the state to enact them on everyone else.

Take the case of the man-hating California feminist in the California Assembly who used state power to enact retribution against men by saddling them with child support for children they didn’t actually father. Or any number of Democrats who hate guns and therefore think that no one else should be allowed to own one.

Or, take the case of an unelected First Lady of the United States to impose dietary restrictions on everyone else because she sucks at managing the nutritional needs of her own family.

As we learn from Politico, Mrs. Obama was inspired to take on childhood obesity in part because of her own struggles to feed her family well: with both her and her husband working, “family dinners too often slipped into a rotation of fast food, microwaved frozen dinners and pizza,” and her daughters began to get fat. One is tempted to ask: why did she let this happen in the first place, and what does it have to do with a massive campaign spearheaded by the federal government?

As a friend put it: “Michelle apparently can’t work a crock pot, so she takes it out on everybody.”

People who think they know best how to run everyone else’s life are the very last people who should have access to Government power. Unfortunately, our system draws them directly into it.

Free Speech for Me, But not for Thee

Posted by V the K at 7:16 pm - March 1, 2016.
Filed under: Democrats & Double Standards

Some students at a high school in California got in trouble, sort of, for wearing “Anti-Gay” buttons. The buttons showed a rainbow flag with a red-circle-slash superimposed on it. The kids were asked to remove the buttons while school officials tried to decide if they were permissible free speech or not.

I have to wonder if any of these buttons would have caused any controversy at the school.

In an odd way, this brings to mind the controversy about Donald Trump not repudiating White Supremacist organizations that have expressed support for him. Should he denounce those organizations? Yes. And Hillary should denounce the racist hate groups that are supporting her. For example, #BlackLivesMatter and La Raza.

BTW: The Social Justice Left has a new buzzword. “Safe Space” is just, you know, like, “So-o-o-o-o-o 2015.” The new buzzword is “Brave Space.” Which is like a Safe Space, but more aggressively social-justicey.

Twitter Is Not a Bakery

Leftists are overjoyed over Twitter’s high-profile banning of outspoken conservatives, and defending Twitter’s conservative-purge on the basis that, “private businesses can ban anyone they want.”

OK, so Twitter can ban conservatives, but Christian bakeries still have to participate in gay weddings, because “Shut Up.”

Academia Against Free Speech

College campuses have no trouble letting radical leftists like Angela Davis (radical black communist), #BlackLivesMatter activists who advocate violence against white people, convicted murdered Abu Mumia Jamal, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, or even the leader of a radical Islamist regime who has vowed genocide against Jews  are welcome to speak freely to their skulls-full-of-mush student bodies. But conservative speakers like Milo Yiannopoulos, anti-feminists like Christina Hoff Sommers, or even an atheist feminist like Ayaan Hirsi Ali are not welcome because their mere presence might hurt the feelings of the Special Leftist Snowflakes.

The latest conservative speaker to irritate the leftist academic establishment is Breaitbart’s Ben Shapiro (someone sure to be banned in the ongoing Twitter Conservative Purge). A student group (Young Americans for Freedom) invited Shapiro to speak at the California State University at Los Angeles. The University’s Administration wants to cancel the speech.

In an email to the Young America’s Foundation chapter at CSULA, university president William Covino wrote, “After careful consideration, I have decided that it will be best for our campus community if we reschedule Ben Shapiro’s appearance for a later date, so that we can arrange for him to appear as part of a group of speakers with differing viewpoints on diversity. Such an event will better represent our university’s dedication to the free exchange of ideas and the value of considering multiple viewpoints.”

Note that radical leftist speakers on college campuses are never required to be part of “a balanced panel discussion,” but can spout off about revolution, oppression, and violence against others all they want.

Why Republicans Should Block Obama’s Supreme Court Nomination

Why should Republicans block Obama’s nomination(s) to the Supreme Court. Simple math really. The country is literally only one vote away from losing the 2nd Amendment. Barack Obama is hostile to the 2nd Amendment; and adamant about imposing gun control one way or another. It stands to reason that his nomination will be hostile to the 2nd Amendment. Obama and his part are also opponents of the First, Fourth, and Tenth Amendments to the degree that they are obstacles to their goal of one-party government centralized in Washington DC, where the states are mere administrators of the executive branch’s will. (“Pen and Phone.”)

And, as the ONT points out, the Democrats really don’t have a leg to stand on in whining about “Republican Obstruction.”

Marcus is surely right that tables can turn. What she leaves out is the simple, glaring, fact that the tables are turning on Democrats who’ve been playing outrageous games with the appointment process for a quarter century. When Robert Bork was defenestrated by Joe Biden, despite Biden’s having said he would have no choice but to vote for someone so well-qualified, he was setting the table for payback. When Harry Reid pulled the trigger on the nuclear option (on lower court appointments) he was warned that this would come back to haunt him. When Democrats disgustingly blocked Miguel Estrada from the bench solely because he was a Hispanic, they set the table to be turned. When Barack Obama voted to filibuster Alito, he set the table to be turned.

Cry me no tears now that Republicans are finally putting their shoulders to the table.

Tedious Hacks Gotta Hack Tediously

Posted by V the K at 9:05 am - February 16, 2016.

In the context of hacksplaining why it’s wrong for Republicans to oppose letting Obama pack the court with leftists, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wants you to know that everything is terrible and it’s all Republicans fault, because Republicans have politicized and polarized everything.

Democrats, he says, never question the legitimacy of a Republican president, would never block a Republican president’s appointments for partisan reasons, and have in no way contributed to the culture of partisanship that prevails in DC.

Yes, he actually says this.

Democrats don’t routinely deny the legitimacy of presidents from the other party; Republicans did it to both Bill Clinton and Mr. Obama.

Right, just forget everything Democrats said or did between November 2000 and January 2009. Also, between 1981 and 1989.

Interestingly, while Krugman rants about how illegitimate and unprecedented it is for Republicans to block a Supreme Court nomination, the word “Bork” appears nowhere in his column.

Democrats, per Krugman, are Holy, Blameless creatures, and not at all responsible for the breakdown in civility.

Second, it’s really important not to engage in false symmetry: only one of our two major political parties has gone off the deep end.

He says this as the Democrat Party’s nominees have boiled down to a corrupt lying sociopath who should have been indicted a long time ago and a hardcore Marxist who wants to double the national debt… again… and throw global warming skeptics in jail.

But he’s hardly unique in this. There are plenty of partisans of both stripes willing to give their side a pass. And that’s the real reason things have gotten bad, not because of a partisan divide, but because of the willingness of so many to accept nastiness, indecency, and even criminal behavior on the part of their side’s politicians. Elect gutter politicians, receive gutter politics.

Hillary Clinton Wins Support from Crazy, Old, Bitter Women

This weekend, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright (you remember her, the fat broad who helped North Korea get nuclear weapons) declared… I am not making this up … women who don’t support Hillary Clinton deserve to burn in hell.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright had a special message for female voters Saturday on the campaign trail with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“And just remember,” she said at a rally in Concord, N.H, flanked by Clinton and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.). “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”

Gloria Steinem, whose famous quote “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle” was instrumental in transforming feminism from a movement seeking equal access to economic and social opportunity into a Cult of Misandry, sneered that is women aren’t supporting Hillary, it’s only because they want to meet boys. Because women… at least Democrat women… make decisions entirely because of middle school crushes. Hillary’s corruption, lawbreaking, influence peddling, and general nastiness could not possibly be a factor, according to the paleo-feminists.

The feminist movement is at an odd place. On the one hand, they want rape to be redefined to include “previously consensual sex that a woman changed her mind about after the guy lost interest in her” so they can prosecute campus males as sex offenders and destroy their lives (thus creating a hostile, anti-male environment on college campuses). But on the other hand, their preferred candidate, Mrs. Clinton, has a long history of attacking women who were sexually abused by her husband; these women, rather than being believed, were attacked by the feminist establishment as “trailer trash.”

Democrats and feminists are not motivated by principles, but by a lust for power. Bill Clinton is/was a powerful man, and feminists gained power through their alliance with him. Hence, they overlooked his sexual predations, because power was more important. Now, they rally around the wife that enabled him… because as her power increases, so does theirs.

Hillary Whips Out the Gender Card

Posted by V the K at 10:01 am - December 3, 2015.
Filed under: Democrats & Double Standards

Hillary just released an ad with the basic message, “Elect me because I’m a woman.” This is the primary rationale for her candidacy. Just as it was unlikely a half-term, far left senator with a shady background would have been unelectable as a white male; it is unlikely an elderly, corrupt, dishonest, and thoroughly unlikable candidate would be this elections Democrat nominee if it were a white male.

Heather Wilhelm at Red State points up the absurdity of the left’s obsession with race and gender.

On one hand, we’re told that gender is meaningless and that people can be whatever gender they believe themselves to be. On the other hand, weirdly, we’re told it’s hugely important and progressive to obsessively check gender boxes when appointing cabinet members, or, say, the next president of the United States. It all leads to the most laughable of conclusions: We need to focus like a laser on the gender of our next leader to prove that we are enlightened enough to look beyond gender—all while obsessing about gender, nonstop, in all ways, all the time.

Read the whole thing.
