Get out the popcorn: Greece is bringin’ the drama

As AP reports, Greece has just gone (further) to the left by voting in their “Syriza” party. With 60% of the vote counted, Syriza leads with 36%, a blowout by Greece’s fragmented / multi-party standard.

Flounder of Delta House was reached for comment and said, “Oh boy, is this great!” Why would he? Because Syriza is a delightful mixture of the sane and the insane.

First, their key campaign plank has been to provoke a new crisis over Greece’s debt to the rest of Europe, including no small chance that Greece would default and/or leave the Euro currency. And that’s the sane part.

It’s sane, because Greece had entered the Euro under false pretenses and then borrowed far more than Greece can ever repay. Syriza is right that Greece’s debt problem is serious, and right that Greece’s solution may well be to default honestly and return to its former currency (the drachma), so that (after devaluation) Greece can be competitive in world markets.

The insane part is that Syriza calls all that “an end to austerity”, “leaving austerity behind”, and so forth. The implication would be that, these last few years, Greece has buckled down and made deep cuts to its public-sector spending. Yeah, except they haven’t.

When I last checked in 2013, Greece had still not made significant cuts to government spending after years of crisis and supposed austerity. (Update: tradingeconomics.com figures say that Greece cut spending in 2010-2012 and has already started to reverse the cuts. In 2014, Greece’s spending was near its all-time high from 2009.)

As I’ve explained before, “austerity” is just the Left’s code word to mean “We aren’t being allowed to spend wildly enough!” If government stays as big as ever – if government has merely a small pause or slowing of its growth – the Left screams about the horrible austerity.

Likewise, “ending austerity” is the Left’s code to mean they get to grow government again and basically have it consume the rest of the economy (whatever it doesn’t own already). That is what the Greeks just voted in. A party that (wisely) wants to provoke a crisis over Greece’s debt; so that it can (stupidly) have even moar of the high-spending, Big Government policies that bankrupted Greece in the first place.

Something tells me the Greeks are about to find out what austerity really is.

What Is Wrong These People?

The Hollywood Left really, really hates ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle, a man who saved countless innocent lives in Iraq by killing very bad people with his sniper rifle. In other words, someone any sane, rational person would regard as a hero.

But not so among degenerate Hollywood leftists.

Michael Moore – the man who puts the ‘fat’ in ‘fatuous left-wing hypocrite’ – took a pause from dividing up his nine luxury homes between he and his divorced wife and said that snipers are cowards.

Bill Maher called Chris Kyle a ‘psychopath.’ And former Democrat presidential candidate Howard Dean agreed.

Seth Rogan notoriously compared ‘American Sniper’ to a Nazi propaganda film, and Chris Kyle to a Nazi soldier, and foul-mouthed, homophobic, walking anger management issue Alec Baldwin leaped to his defense.

And yet, juvenile thugs like Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown, and men who rape children like Roman Polanski are heroes to them.

Really. Seriously. What the hell?

Feminist Blocking Metro Door with her ‘Personal Space Box’

As near as I can tell, this is a real thing.  At least, no one’s called “boolsheet” on it, yet.

SRSLY, sweetheart, if your ‘personal space’ is so important, stop riding the Metro and buy a damb car.

This really wouldn’t be so bad, except that equally insane, neurotic people like the woman in the picture are in positions of power and setting policy. Which is why the life of any man in college can be destroyed by a false allegation of rape, or because he said something perfectly innocuous and anodyne that rubbed some personal space boxer/social justice warrior the wrong way.

2014: The Year in Feminist Stupidity

In 2014, the Feminists didn’t just jump the shark, they achieved Geosynchronous Orbit over it. Every week seemed to bring a new feminist outrage. Charlotte Allen at the LA Times has a rundown of some of the Peak Idiocy Feminism (Inc.) hit this year,  including:

  • The time Rolling Stone published a made-up story about a gang rape at UVAand feminists said it didn’t matter that it was made up because men who were accused of rape didn’t deserve the presumption of innocence because boys are icky.
  • The time feminists went all hysterical because a scientist who had just landed a space probe on a friggin’ comet wore a shirt that gave them the sads.
  • The time feminists went all hysterical because Spiderwoman was drawn in an attractive way on the cover of a comic book.
  • The time feminists made a video of a bunch of pre-teen girls shrieking the F-bomb like a gang of  horny sailors to promote their feminist ideals.

And then, because feminist hysteria is such a target-rich environment, Tim Blair adds a few more, mostly concerned with Western Feminism’s Huge 360-Degree Blindspot when it comes to the way Mohammedans treat women [Hat Tip: AoSHQ ONT] (the gay left has this same problem), but both of them forget to mention the feminists going nutzoid over “manspreading.”

And Yes, of course, there were the “Slut Walks.” On a related note, 2014 also had, in entertainment, the spectacle of Beyonce parading around in next-to-nothing, shaking her silicone bags in front of a giant lighted sign reading “Feminist,” decidedly a mixed message at best.

However, 2014 was also the year the ‘War on Women’ rhetoric stopped working. Colorado Democrat Mark Udall based his entire senate campaign on accusing his Republican opponent of hatin’ the womenfolk and he lost resoundingly. Democrat Abortion Advocate Wendy Davis ran her Texas gubernatorial campaign entirely on “I Am Woman, Hear Me Whine,” and went down to an epic defeat.

The fact that feminists get so hysterical over silly little things can only mean that the major stuff has been pretty much worked out; and being forced to wear a Burqa, denied an education, or stoned to death for an accusation of adultery must not be major stuff to feminists.

The Feminists may not realize how ridiculous they have become, but the rest of the world is waking up.

Democrats’ “Reality Based” Rationale for Killing the Keystone XL Pipeline

How is it that if Canadian oil is shipped to the southern USA via pipeline it causes Global Warming, but if the same oil is sent to the southern USA by train, or to China by ship… it doesn’t cause Global Warming? Because that is apparently what the radical environmental left and their idiotic Democrat Senators believe.

Death of the Ultimate SJW

The radical left is going to have an empty seat at their next annual Vegan Potluck and Shaming Conference. [Hat Tip: Weasel Zips]

Leslie Feinberg, who identified as an anti-racist white, working-class, secular Jewish, transgender, lesbian, female, revolutionary communist, died on November 15. She succumbed to complications from multiple tick-borne co-infections, including Lyme disease, babeisiosis, and protomyxzoa rheumatica, after decades of illness.

She died at home in Syracuse, NY, with her partner and spouse of 22 years, Minnie Bruce Pratt, at her side. Her last words were: “Remember me as a revolutionary communist.”

Remember you as someone who supported a system that slaughtered over 100,000,000 human beings in the 20th Century and enslaved millions more. Your proposal is acceptable.

Speaking of hippies, some residents of Berzerkley invaded a Whole Foods store and held a funeral for a frozen chicken. I am not making this up.

Remember when lefties liked free speech? (or claimed to)

Something in Bruce’s Twitter stream got me to notice this petition on Daily Kos, which is

…calling on Congress and the States [to] Act now to do whatever is within your power to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.

I don’t know when DK started the petition; probably a few years ago. But it’s still active. Now, in terms of the U.S. constitution, what caused the Citizens United decision? As Justice Kennedy wrote in 2010 for the majority:

If the First Amendment has any force, it prohibits Congress from fining or jailing citizens, or associations of citizens, for simply engaging in political speech.

So, the principle of Free Speech caused the decision. The First Amendment right of citizens, or associations of citizens, to engage in political speech – is what the decision expresses and defends.

If we do the math, the Daily Kos petition is effectively:

…calling on Congress and the States [to] Act now to do whatever is within your power to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn free speech.

…calling on Congress and the States [to] Act now to do whatever is within your power to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn the First Amendment right of citizens, or associations of citizens, to engage in political speech.

Example #12,770 of leftism actually being fascism and vice versa.

Liberal NY Times Readers Terrified of Armed Black Folk

Posted by V the K at 10:12 pm - October 26, 2014.
Filed under: Gun Control,Leftist Nutjobs

National Review’s C.W. Cooke wrote an editorial for the New York Times in which he recognized the historical reality that gun control laws have been primarily aimed at disarming African-Americans at the behest of politically empowered whites. He also urged the NRA to extend outreach to African-Americans and urged African-Americans to exercise their 2A rights.

The liberal readers at the NYTimes had a online comment meltdown.

“Have these gun nuts no shame? Invoking MLK to keep the flow of weapons in the streets unabated? Really.”

“Just what we need, a white guy advocating weapons for people who have suffered more than enough.”

“What we do know with as close to certainty as we can get is that in Stand Your Ground states, Black men carrying a weapon will be pre-emptively murdered.”

“The 2nd Amendment is only for the self professed militia against an imaginary, US Government gone rogue especially now that we have our biracial President. NRA, Republicans, gun-owners, have’nt I got that right?”

And, because the leftwing nutjobs are absolutely obsessed with it, there are a number of comments about Cliven Bundy. The image of a citizen standing up to Obama’s Totalitarian Government drives them ape-nuts.

Jeff adds: A leftie recently brought up Bundy in GP’s comments, too. Fun times!

The Deranged, Delusional Paranoia of the Left

Posted by V the K at 9:28 am - October 23, 2014.
Filed under: Academia,Leftist Nutjobs

A professor of religion at Skidmore (not Skidmark) College [Annual Tuition: $47,314*] opines that we shouldn’t be afraid of ISIS-flavored terror attacks in the United States. Nope, the voices tell her that the real threat comes from … devout followers of Jesus Christ.

Contrary to the popular opinion that radical Islam is the primary threat to homeland security, Christianity provides the other four groups with their extremist rationale. All are in one way or another affiliated with the Christian Identity movement, a hodgepodge of anarchist and white supremacist politics dedicated to white Christian activism. It’s all about God vs. government, and shoring up the rights of Anglo-Saxon Americans.
The mainstream news media have been remarkably slow when it comes to zeroing in on the pervasive reality of hate-based Christian extremism. It is easier, after all, to blame the un-American other. In 2012, six Sikhs were killed and three wounded in Milwaukee by Wade Michael Page, a neo-Nazi skinhead. The “dangerous other” isn’t always Muslim or Muslim-looking. The Millers affixed a swastika to the body of one of the two police officers they killed.

It probably has not occurred to this elite leftist academic that the reason the “mainstream news media” hasn’t covered Christian-based violent terrorism is because… there hasn’t been any. She can play-pretend that one deranged neo-Nazi skinhead is emblematic of Christianity, and perhaps, in her left-wing academic bubble it is. But seriously, when was the last time someone converted to Christianity and proceeded to shoot up the Canadian Paliament, ram a car into a Canadian soldier, saw the head off a co-worker/hostage/Brtiish soldier all the while screaming “Jesus Loves You!”? Never, that’s when.

* BTW, Business Week has rated Skidmore the 14th worst value in higher education.

Liberal White Guilt versus Ebola

A liberal panelist on CNN explains why basic, commonsense measures to stop the spread of Ebola and other hemorrhagic diseases  … such as quarantining people traveling from regions where the disease is epidemic… is not possible. It’s because of slavery.

David Quammen, author of Ebola, believes the past sins of the United States require it to maintain travel links with the nation, despite the possible health consequences.

“We in America, how dare we turn our backs on Liberia, given the fact that this is a country that was founded in the 1820s, 1830s because of American slavery?” he told Cooper. “We have a responsibility to stay connected with them, and help them see this through.”

I begin to think Ebola is evolution’s way of telling us that our society has become too stupid to survive.

How Insane Are Liberals?

Apparently, this insane.

This is the question posed by philosophers who believe all suffering should be terminated. These philosophers propose that we eradicate predation, so sentient animals never have to feel this pain again.The idea is that to relieve suffering, predators should be genetically altered to no longer be carnivorous.

Philosophers who believe in predation elimination take that moral stance one step further. They argue that if we don’t want animals to suffer in slaughter houses or tight cages, why wouldn’t we want to end their suffering in the wild too?

“Suffering is bad for anyone, anywhere, anytime,” David Pearce, a British philosopher who published a manifesto on the Hedonistic Imperative, the theory that suffering must be eradicated, told us. “In the post-genomic era, to confine the relief of suffering to a single person, race or species would express an arbitrary and self-serving bias.”

That’s how insane.

Liberalism is all about pretending the world is the way you wish it were instead of the way it really is. But even more, it’s about calling those meanies who insist on living in reality bigots, h8rs, racists, and homophobes.

Feminist Loons Continue Single-Minded Obsession with Ladyparts

Some JV feminists at a programming camp bought into the cultural zeitgeist (i.e. the Progressive Obsession with Vaginas) and decided to create a Tampon-Centric video game, perhaps to remind everyone how Mitt Romney planned to “outlaw tampons” as part of the Republican War on Women Agenda.

New York City high school students Andrea Gonzales and Sophie Houser met at coding camp and recently completed their project Tampon Run — a video game to point out that menstrual cycles are normal… and guns are bad.

The game is an 8-bit throwback where the lead female character grabs boxes of tampons and throws them at her enemies before they get taken. Oh yeah, the enemies all look like boys.
