Why are so many leftist progressives so enamored of a religious sect that supports violence against gays and women? Why are members of a sect that supports violence against gays and women so enamored of a political cult that supports a radical feminist/gay left agenda? Could it simply boil down to racism?
I increasingly think the Democrat/Muslim union has to do with old-fashioned relativism. Democrats don’t actually believe that women’s rights and gay rights apply to everyone; white people: sure. Arabs? Well, who am I to judge? And Muslims know this.
When Robby George is just dumbfounded as to why all these Muslims support the party of abortion on demand and gay marriage, the answer seems pretty clear to me: They’re supporting the party of abortion on demand and gay marriage for infidels. In Dearborn, it doesn’t matter one whit what Tony Kennedy says about the Sweet Mystery of Life. Ms. DeBoer has the right to get married to another woman; but if Fatimah thinks she does, too, then her cousin Ahmed will disabuse her of that idea very quickly.
Remind me again how there’s a “War on Women?”
At a congressional hearing on campus sexual assault, Colorado Rep. Jared Polis (D) suggested that expelling students based solely on the idea that they might have committed a crime is an acceptable standard. And the hearing audience applauded him.
“I mean, if there’s 10 people that have been accused and under a reasonable likelihood standard maybe one or two did it, seems better to get rid of all 10 people,” Polis said. “We’re not talking about depriving them of life or liberty, we’re talking about their transfer to another university.”
“I mean, if I was running one I might say ‘well, you know, even if there’s a 20 or 30 percent chance that it happened I wouldn’t want … I would want to remove this individual,’” Polis said. “Why shouldn’t a private institution, in the interest in promoting a safe environment, use an even lower standard than a preponderance of evidence, like even a reasonable likeliness standard?”
If you want the Federal Government to spend less money, you’re a dangerous extremist and a terrorist.
Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit, according to several sources in the room.
Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.
“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”
Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists.”
If, on the other hand, you belong to a movement whose members openly call for the murder of white people and cops….
Black Lives Matter protesters marching on the Minnesota state fair on Saturday spewed violent anti-cop rhetoric just hours after a Harris County, Tex. sheriff’s deputy was ambushed and executed at a Houston-area gas station.
“Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” activists with the St. Paul, Minn. branch of Black Lives Matter chanted while marching behind a group of police officers down a highway just south of the state fair grounds.
… then, the Democrat Party will pass a resolution supporting your group and its goals.
“[T]he DNC joins with Americans across the country in affirming ‘Black lives matter’ and the ‘say her name’ efforts to make visible the pain of our fellow and sister Americans as they condemn extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children,” the resolution states.
Because there is no other important business to attend to, over a hundred Congress-drones have petitioned the State Department to force other countries to accept gay marriage.
One hundred and twenty-five members of Congress asked Secretary of State John Kerry in a letter Monday to deny visas to diplomats’ spouses if the envoys come from a country that doesn’t recognize same-sex spouses of State Department personnel.
The lawmakers who wrote Kerry on Monday argued that countries which don’t recognize spouses of gay foreign service officers “hamper the professional growth” of the diplomats and “threaten the Department’s ability to ensure that it can place the best, most qualified person in each position.”
“We cannot look the other way when an American diplomatic spouse — any American diplomatic spouse — is discriminated against in this way… In countries that maintain legalized forms of racism, sexism, or other types of bias, we believe the State Department should take a proactive role in demonstrating America’s deep commitment to equality, dignity, and diversity,” they continued.
Among the petitioners are the many of same Democrats who insist it would be wrong to tie foreign aid to market and political reforms, because that would be “imposing American values on other cultures.” The folks also believe that it’s wrong to expect foreigners who immigrate to the USA to assimilate into our culture, or even learn our language.
But, what the hell, the Obama-Kerry State Department decided a long time ago that pandering to Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians (LGBT) in the USA was a far more important mission than representing American interests around the world.
On a related note, the political appointment of dim-but-well-connected Democrat to the post of US Ambassador to Japan has worked out about as well as … frankly, as when a dim-but-well-connected Democrat hack was put in charge of the Office of Personnel Management and now some Chinese hackers have my SF-84 … which is as conservatives predicted it would.
Vester Flanagan murdered two people today in hopes that an act of black-on-white violence would spur a race war.
Every time there is a shooting, the MFM hopes the shooter will meet their preferred narrative. Not this time.
In an often rambling letter to the authorities, and family and friends, he writes of a long list of grievances. In one part of the document, Williams calls it a “Suicide Note for Friends and Family”.–He says has suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work.
–He says he has been attacked by black men and white females.
–He talks about how he was attacked for being a gay, black man
So, we had to purge all Confederate Battle Flags because Dylann Stormdoor was a southern white supremacist; can we please ban that horrible rainbow flag now? Or does gay privilege trump white privilege?
1. The Democrat Mayor of Kansas City brags about driving the white people out of his city. Can you imagine the outrage of another mayor had bragged that his city was better for having fewer black or Hispanic people in it? One notes, he said this at a convention for a group called “The Nation Council of the Race;” whose historical motto has been, “Within the race is all; outside the race is nothing.”
2. First Hillary and now dunderheaded Democrat candidate Martin O’Malley (the best governor Virginia ever had) have been attacked for saying “All lives matter.” O’Malley was forced to apologize for his gaffe of suggesting that the lives of members of other races mattered as much as black lives.
They did not realize, apparently, that the subtext of #BlackLivesMatter is #OnlyBlackLivesMatter.
Domestic violence allegations will destroy the career of a male football player; but the rules are different if you are a womyn’s soccer player.
Hope Solo is her name, the US team goalkeeper, and a woman reckoned – by no coincidence at all – to be the finest female goalie of all time. Strong, athletic, with biceps the size of most men’s thighs, this is a woman who has ridden the blooming popularity of the women’s game in the States with significant financial return. … She is also a woman who, in June 2014, was arrested after reports came through that she had beaten up her half-sister and her teenage nephew. Nice.
For sure Solo, who has a potty-mouthed history of argument with colleagues, coaches and officials alike, has not yet been charged (though it has to be pointed out that prosecutors have appealed the decision not to press charges). But then neither were Greg Hardy and Ray McDonald who were given bans by the American football authorities at the point they were arrested for domestic violence, even though charges were not eventually forthcoming.
Solo, however, has sailed on unabated, her excellence between the posts apparently trumping any suggestion of moral equivalence with her male peers.
For ‘role models’ in designated politically empowered demographic categories, there is just a different set of rules.
BTW, after all the hoopla last week about the US Womyn’s kickball team winning the big kickball tournament, it is important to remember. Nobody gave a f— about womyn’s kickball two weeks ago, and no one will give a f— two weeks from now.
Thanks, guys in the comments.
The Clinton Global Initiative has taken between $1Million and $10Million from a church in Africa what hate The Gheys.
Hillary Clinton’s charity accepted a substantial donation from an anti-gay African church which has likened homosexuals to the Devil, Daily Mail Online can reveal.
The 2016 Presidential candidate took money for her sprawling health nonprofit from the Cameroon Baptist Convention whose official policy is that being gay ‘contradicts God’s purpose for human sexuality’.
The devout Christian organization has in the past compared being gay to committing incest and human trafficking. Its leaders have also railed against US attempts to promote gay rights in Cameroon
Is this a problem for any of you gay Democrat Hillary supporters out there? Or would this only be a problem if Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, or Mike Huckabee had taken money from a gay-bashing church.
MSDNC — a 24/7 Infomercial for the Democrat Party — is a big champion of tax increases to pay for essential Government services, such as using the IRS to crack down on opposition groups, or giving bureaucrats quarter-million dollar moving allowances to relocate shorter distances than some people commute. The Democrat Party activists who host MSDNC’s programs are … to make a reference to an MSDNC program that no one will get because no one watches… “all in” on redistributing the wealth through taxation.
But only if the wealth being distributed belongs to other people. Al Sharpton owed the IRS some $4.5 Million in delinquent taxes. The Government has sent armed federal troopers after people with smaller dents to the Government, but Sharpton is still a VIP guest at the White House.
Now, it turns out that another MSDNC host, Melissa Harris-Perry, is delinquent on taxes to tune of $70,000; enough to pay for 1/4th the cost of moving a VA bureaucrat or financing about fifteen minutes of a typical Obama vacation.
I wonder how many pairs of tampon earrings you could buy with $70,000

In Progressive-occupied Colorado, it is the official policy of the state that gays have more rights than other people.
Last week, the Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled that Denver’s Azucar Bakery did not discriminate against William Jack, a Christian from Castle Rock, by refusing to make two cakes with anti-gay messages and imagery that he requested last year.
Last year, the Colorado Civil Rights Division ruled that another bakery, Masterpiece Cake Shop in Lakewood, could not refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, calling it discriminatory.
One set of rules for the politically favored, a different set of rules for everybody else. That’s America under the Obamacrats.
Note: According to a liberal polling outfit, only 32% of Americans support punishing people for refusing to take part in gay weddings. Unfortunately, those 32% control the media, academia, the courts, and the government.
An employee of the CBS News station in Richmond VA was angry about the success Memories Pizza was having on GoFundMe; because those whom the gay left hate groups target for destruction because they hold politically incorrect opinions you should beg forgiveness and cower while the gay left ignores their pleas and destroys them anyway. She was so mad, in fact, that she decided to harass the people behind the GoFundMe account and then brag about it on Twitter because she’s employed as a social media specialist, and because lying about and harassing people they don’t like are pretty much what the left is all about these days.
She got some pushback, which upset her very much, and led to this Epic, internet winning exchange.
Exit Question: Will the leftist Alix Bryan have any clue how pwned she just was.
Answer: The Progressive Left Could Not Care Less
Of course, the Progressive Left could also not care less that gays are routinely tortured and executed in Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Palestine…
But a Christian politely declining to bake a wedding cake is a crime against humanity, and they should burn for it.
So, Ted Cruz’s wife leaves her job so she can support his presidential bid and, as required by the law, Ted Cruz signs up for Obamacare. Note: He could have just used the exemption that Congress and the Obama Administration carved out for themselves, but he decided to follow the law like American citizens are required to do.
The Democrat left went crazy attacking him for this. (Warning: MSDNC Link: Annoying autoplay)
Meanwhile, it’s revealed that not only did Hillary Clinton illegally use a private email server to conduct Government business, she also apparently wiped it clean to … let’s be honest about this… prevent anyone from accessing evidence that she was illegally taking money (bribes) from foreign Governments and mishandling classified documents.
And the Democrat left defends her.
Basically, this reflects the fact that lawlessness has become that stand operating procedure of the Democrat Party. Obamacare – passed with underhanded legislative trickery. Executive Amnesty – Obama simply negates laws he doesn’t agree with. Deal to Protect Iran’s Nuclear Development Program – Congress bypassed entirely. Net Neutrality. IRS abuse. Fast and Furious. Tax cheating by Charlie Rangel and Tim Geithner. Examples of Democrat Lawlessness are endless.
But Republicans are not only held to an absolute standard of compliance, they are attacked even when they obey the law.
This should go well with Low Information Voters and the rest of the Democrat Identity Cult.
From Reptilian Overlord James Carville:
I suspect she didn’t want [Republican congressman] Louie Gohmert rifling through her emails, which seems to me to be a kind of reasonable position for someone to take.
From Democrat Shilling USA Today:
If your name is Clinton, and you’re a high-ranking public official in one of the most politically polarized moments in U.S. history, it would be impossibly naive not to assume that conflict would arise and that, even if you were cunningly circumspect in your e-mails, that something damaging would not slip through.
The Univision TV Network fired one of their hosts (who happens to be, you know, gay) for saying unflattering things about Michelle Obama.
The left-wing Univision cable network has fired Emmy-winning host Rodner Figueroa for comparing First Lady Michelle Obama to an ape. During his show, Figueroa showed photos of the First Lady and said, “Mind you, you know that Michelle Obama looks like she’s part of the cast of “Planet of the Apes,” the film.”
Remember when Bill Maher got fired for calling Sarah Palin a “stupid c*nt?” Oh, wait, he got a raise and a contract extension. Nevermind.
Update: Apparently there is some ambiguity over whether he was actually referring to the FLOTUS.
A High School science teacher in New York City who won awards for his work coaching debate teams and was, by the way, the faculty adviser to the Bronx Science Gay-Straight Alliance, has been arrested on child pornography charges.
In a KIK conversation with another victim from upstate New York, Cruz allegedly wrote: “Can I keep asking things and asking for specific pix requests? I just want to make sure, the pics are between us, right?”
The 14-year-old boy sent a photo in response and wrote, “Sure but I still know why u need all these pics?”
Cruz said, “Can I be honest. That shirt sums up why you get to take my money. You know?”
The boy replied, “O yah lol”
Cruz wrote: “Pictures just have a huge impact on me. Seeing your feet and face and muscles and room and awards and stuff reinforce what a big deal you are.”
If he were a white Roman Catholic priest, this would be national news. But as a teacher, a Hispanic, and a gay, he is triple-covered by belonging to three protected classes. If he were a Roman Catholic, this would be a Church Scandal, indicative of a ‘culture of sexual abuse and tolerance for abusers.’ But no one would dare to suggest that the public school system or the gay community have any endemic problem with the sexual abuse of minors.
All those campaign contributions and loyalty to the progressive cause buy a lot of silence.
You know the saying “There are no accidents”. First, consider how the Left’s beloved fake-Native American, Elizabeth Warren, is an unusually wealthy member of Congress – probably worth over $6 million. Courtesy of ZH:
Next, consider how the Left’s beloved fake-Native American, Elizabeth Warren, opposes a bill to audit the Federal Reserve Bank.
I say the 2 things are connected. You see, Elizabeth Warren is a phony. That doesn’t only mean that she has repeatedly lied about her racial (non-)heritage for personal gain. It also means that she lies about being a populist who would support the little guy against Big Banking.
For the last 6 1/2 years, the Fed – the privately-owned, biggest bank of them all – has (in accordance with Obama’s wishes) pumped boatloads of newly-created cash into our financial markets, to make financial bubbles that benefit “the one percent” – who include the top earners of Big Government and Big Banking (plus Big Government’s general deficits being financed). And Elizabeth Warren has no real problem with any of that. She does claim to oppose it. But her actions tell another story.
If she really opposed it, she’d be leading the charge to get the Fed audited. Instead, Rand Paul leads the charge (and Ron Paul before him) – while she carps, or puts up obstacles. “Follow the money.”
Unrelated follow-up: After noting in early December that holiday spending was off to a weak start, I should note that indeed, December consumer spending plunged by the most since 2009, as people’s incomes stagnated. At least by *conventional* economic wisdom, that means a bad economy – and shouldn’t be happening.
Yeah, I imagine this is really going to make the left angry. They will consider this a very ignorant statement. The long-held consensus is that being gay is neither a lifestyle nor a choice, they say. LGBT is a whole vasty culture. And a person’s sexuality is an innate part of that person, they will. “It’s genetic! Because Science!” they will cry, and call her an ignorant, bigoted chillbilly.
‘Cept it weren’t Mrs. Sarah Palin what said that, it were that there genius president, Barack Obama.
“I will tell you peoples’ hearts have opened up on this issue,” the president said during Thursday’s interview. “I think people know that treating folks unfairly, even if you disagree with their lifestyle choice, the fact of the matter is they’re not bothering you. Let them live their lives and under the law they should be treated equally.
