The Pope’s Hypocrisy

Item 1: Pope Francis attacks wealth-holders and calls for the redistribution of (other people’s, natch) wealth to the poor.

Hypocritical Element: The Vatican’s holdings are worth tens of billions; and there is no discussion of liquidating them for distribution to the poor.

Item 2: The Pope says that Weapons manufacturers can’t call themselves Christians.

Hypocritical Element: Not only is the Pope protected by paramiliaries armed with firearms, but the Vatican Bank is a major shareholder in Pietro Baretta Arms.

Item 3: In issuing an encyclical calling for the faithful to embrace the dogma of Climate Change and support the expansion of Government power and the diminishing of individual rights in order to fight it, the pope said, “I would like to enter a dialogue with all people about our common home.”

Hypocritical element: “All People” does not include climate change skeptics, who were excluded from participating in the encyclical.

You begin to see why this Pope is unusually popular on the Progressive Left. And watching the party that has always insisted that religion had no business in government, the same progressives who have been slamming the Roman Catholic church for decades, suddenly cheering as the Pope endorses their policy prescriptions is rich indeed.

Why Is Josh Duggar Worse Than Kaitlyn Hunt?

Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy

We don’t know the particulars of whatever sex crimes Josh Duggar may have committed when he was fourteen years years old (a juvenile), but we do know that the left wing thinks that on the basis of those past behaviors, regardless of his apparent repentance and good behavior since, he… and every other evangelical Christian… should be punished forever. Perhaps by stoning.

In contrast, Kaitlyn Hunt was 18 years old (an adult) when she stalked and raped a fourteen year old girl. Ms Hunt, in contrast, became a cause celebre on the left (not quite to the degree of a Mike Brown or a Mumia Jamal, but still a celebrity).

Looking at these two cases, should one conclude that it’s socially acceptable for an adult lesbian to stalk and molest an underage girl? (The Vagina Monologues contained exactly such a scene.) But on the other hand, if an underage boy commits a sex offense, he should be branded, shunned, and punished for life… along with his entire family?

Leftists Stand Up for Freedom of Certain Religions

A group of sanctimonious left-wing dhimmis has started a movement called #NotMyAmerica because of their outrage over people who provoke Mohammedans to acts of violence and terror by drawing pictures of their prophet Mohammed.

“In our America, freedom of speech should not be used to trump freedom of religion,” she told The Huffington Post. “All Americans have the right to worship free of fear and intimidation.”

When free speech provokes, threatens, incites, it’s no longer productive or safe. That’s what #PHXmosque rally is. That’s #NotMyAmerica

So, I am certain they will be showing up at the next San Francisco Gay Pride Parade to protest these people then, right?

Progressives Exempt Themselves

Posted by V the K at 7:29 am - May 28, 2015.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy

Some news on the leftist hypocrisy front, the left-wing unions in Los Angeles have been fighting to price themselves out of the labor market and be replaced by robots for a $15-an-hour living wage. And now that they are on the verge of getting Government to force that law on business owners, the unions are demanding that they and their workers be exempt from it.

Also, socialist icon Elizabeth Warren (D-MASS) apparently bought an old lady’s house for $30K and then, instead of making it into affordable housing for the proletariat, flipped it for a $115K profit. Someone should tell her she didn’t build that, and has no right to make money from it.

The Duggar Thing and the Left’s Complete Misunderstanding of Christianity

Posted by V the K at 9:45 pm - May 24, 2015.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy,Pop Culture

The left, and vile POS Dan Savage in particular, is obsessed with the Duggar family of Arkansas; because they are white, hetersexual, Christian fundamentalists and refuse to be ashamed of any of those things like leftists think they should be.

And it turns out, one of the Duggar boys, a long time ago, did something terrible. He confessed to it, repented of it, and never made any attempt to excuse or justify it, or ask anyone else to. And that thing he did was similar in kind and degree to what honored left-wing film-makers Roman Polanski, Victor Salva, and Woody Allen did; none of whom repented of the child-rapes or creepy incestuous molestations they committed, and all of whom are welcome members of the left-wing film-making community.

But the left is going after the Duggar family with all the pitchforks and torches they can round up. And they are… in the manner of a crazed, self-righteous mob… positively gleeful about the alleged hypocrisy of the Duggar situation… because it supposedly proves Christians are awful, Christians are hypocrites, Christianity is a lie, and everybody should be a hedonistic atheist; because they are paragons of never being hypocrites.

Glenn Beck explains why they are wrong, wrong. wrong!

They would indeed be correct in their assessment if the central tenet of the Christian faith was that all believers in Christ are without sin or blemish. But far from that being a doctrine of the religion, it is actually the precise opposite of what Christians believe. None of us — not the Duggars, not anyone — claim that a faith in Jesus bestows perfect holiness on the faithful. It is because of our sinful nature that we need Him. When we sin, we do not disprove that thesis; we underscore it.

Christianity is not a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card that absolves holders of all transgressions, but Leftism totally is. Leftism is why Al Gore can fly all over the world on private jets and have multiple homes that have a larger carbon footprint than some third world countries; his leftism makes it okay. Leftism is why Bill Clinton can be a serial abuser of women and have feminists run to his defense; his leftism makes it okay. Leftism is why Michael Moore can avoid union labor and take tax breaks for making movies in Michigan while decrying corporate welfare; his leftism makes it okay.

Leftists don’t understand Chrisitianity; because it is utterly unlike leftism.

Why Do Progressives Try to Sound Like Republicans?

There was a different version of this commercial — put out by the progressive left Government of the State of New York — on CNN earlier today, advertising that New York was a great place to do business; because of the high quality of government services provided by its high taxes.

Just kidding, it actually was bragging about tax cuts, tax free zones, and “no taxes for 10 years” on new investment. Weird to see progressive Democrats pushing the same policies they excoriate Republicans for. Why don’t progs brag about the policies they really believe in?

The kicker is, if you go to the New York State business website, they are bragging about how they are cracking down on nail salons with new inspection, licensing requirements, and a whole bunch of new “safety regulations.” Complete with new “state enforcement teams” to make sure nail salons meet state standards.

They’ve also set up “Fast Food Minimum Wage Board” to figure out how to get to that $15-an-hour that’s been so successful in Seattle and San Francisco.

Funny the commercial doesn’t mention those progressive efforts.

Bit of a mixed message.

Happy Urf Day

Today (I think it’s today, not totally up on these things), the hippie left celebrates “Earth Day,” which was co-founded by a radical hippie environmentalist who murdered his girlfriend and composted her body.  You can honor Earth Day by starting a tire fire, or burning 9,180 gallons of jet fuel like the president did. They have roughly the same environmental impact.

This was making the rounds on Teh Facebooks earlier today:

Predictions made on the first Earth Day, 1970:

“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” – George Wald, Harvard Biologist

“Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” – New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day

“By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” – Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” – Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….” – Life Magazine, January 1970

This is the same crowd assuring us that “Global Warming is real, it is caused by human activity. The science is settled!”

Then, as now, the solution was the same: Enact the progressive socialist agenda, submit to Government control, dismantle global enterprise.

Hippies.

MSDNC: Your Home for Hypocritical Tax Cheats

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

The Empire Strikes Back

George Lucas’s wealthy, progressive neighbors wouldn’t let him build a film studio on land he owns in Marin County, CA. So, to get back at them, he’s going to use the land to build “affordable housing.”

Lucas, the Star Wars creator is offering his own property in west Marin County off Lucas Valley Road near Novato for the project, with plans for a community of 224 homes right where neighbors said no to his studio expansion.

“He said ‘we’ve got enough millionaires here. What we need is some houses for regular working people,’” Lucas’ lawyer Gary Giacomini said.

To paraphrase one comment, this is the ultimate rich progressive leftist revenge; forcing other rich, progressive leftists to live around working class/middle income people.

The Left: Opposing a Nuclear-Armed Iran Is “Traitorous”

Posted by V the K at 7:22 am - March 11, 2015.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy

The Obama Administration, their lefty cult of mindless drones have decided that Republicans who openly oppose Obama’s plan to sideline Congress in order to cut a deal to allow Iran to develop nukes without the threat of sanctions or military intervention are “traitors.” Loudmouth Democrat Maniac Howard Dean called it “Treason.” And Hillary Clinton took time out of her press conference to bash Republicans as un-American for “expressly (undercutting) a sitting president in the midst of sensitive international negotiations.”

Seems like the left was singing a different tune a few years ago.

“I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

Remember that? Who said that?

Will the Left call this kid “racist”?

Note: CJ Pearson is probably a descendant of the African-American slaves. Barack H. Obama, by his own official biography, is not.

It’s nice that he’s asking, this time

Remember the Left going on and on about President Bush’s supposedly “illegal” and “unilateral” Iraq war? When, in reality, the Bush administration had gone to great lengths to obtain (and did obtain) authorization for Iraq from both Congress and the U.N.

Even Senator Obama got in on the act, saying later in 2007 that “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.” His words were correct – but again, irrelevant to the Bush case (since Bush had Congressional, bipartisan approval).

Then President Obama felt like bombing Libya out of the blue (no terrorist threat was involved – until after Ghaddafi was gone). And he sought no authorization from Congress. Did the Left care? A little; but really not much.

President Peace Prize also went on to embroil the U.S. in wars in Syria and Ukraine – unilaterally and with no authorization. And to blow any gains of the Iraq war, allowing ISIS to take hold; an event that President Orwell referred to as his having “ended the war”.

Now that he has done so, he proposes to resume the Iraq war. Except this time, he finally wants authorization first. I suppose that’s nice of him. I suppose we must be grateful, to such a terribly great man, for the small graces that he grants to us, his subjects.

Fauxcahontas at work

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.

An Interesting Question

Posted by V the K at 5:10 pm - January 31, 2015.
Filed under: Gay Culture,Liberal Hypocrisy

Mary Cheney wants to know why Minstrel Shows are socially forbidden, but Drag Shows are considered fabulous?

“Why is it socially acceptable — as a form of entertainment — for men to put on dresses, make up and high heels and act out every offensive stereotype of women (bitchy, catty, dumb, slutty, etc.) — but it is not socially acceptable — as a form of entertainment — for a white person to put on blackface and act out offensive stereotypes of African Americans?”

I think the correct liberal answer is, “Because you’re a racist.” But then, that’s pretty much the all-purpose liberal response to any question they don’t have an answer to.

On a related note, a Women’s college recently canceled a performance of The Vajayjay Monologuesostensibly so as not to offend transgendereds, but actually because social justice warriors are just completely bloody insane. (more…)

Who are the real progressives? (Hint: We are)

Here’s a thought: *It’s wrong to take things from people by force.*

The above is an ethical principle so basic that even leftists know it. When, say, watching a movie that has cavemen, the leftie can see that the caveman taking things (by force) is a sign of his savagery. Or, when teaching a kindergarten, even a left-wing teacher will stop the kid who grabs another kid’s toys or body parts without prior, explicit consent. The willingness to deal with others by mutual, voluntary consent is the foundation of civilized society.

But in the sphere of politics, the left-winger forgets it. Politically, her concept is that if you can get “the community” or government to take things from people by force (rather than taking things yourself)……then it’s OK. She calls that concept “progressive”. But it isn’t progressive. It’s regressive and, indeed, reactionary.

It’s reactionary because it dates back to savage times. It’s the prevailing rule in the dark(er) ages of human history. In medieval and early modern times, they called it the Divine Right of Kings. The idea was that the monarch, being answerable only to God, had the right to take anyone’s life, liberty or property at any time. Which meant, more or less, that the government had the right; government was effectively unlimited.

Beginning in the 17th and 18th centuries, unlimited government was opposed by the Lockean Revolution, a set of ideas developed by many, including John Locke. The core idea was that individuals have natural rights, superior to the government’s. The Lockeans were not anarchists; they pushed the ideas of limited government and rule of law.

The Lockean Revolution was (and still is) profoundly progressive. In itself, it is an instance of progress (over savagery). Also, to whatever extent it has been practiced, it has tended to make the surrounding society much more developed and open.

Opponents of the Lockean Revolution were reactionaries. Why? Because almost by definition they were aristocrats, defending old privileges and unjust institutions (such as slavery and unlimited government).

Eventually, the reactionaries saw that Big Government could not survive, if people understood that it was reactionary. Big Government advocates saw the need to dress themselves up as new-fangled and “progressive”. So they developed new political theories; new justifications for Big Government, that is, government which would be able to take things from people by physical force, as it pleased.

Following more socialistic philosophers such as Rousseau or Marx, advocates of Big Government chopped off the King’s head – while preserving his Big (or nearly unlimited) government, in practice. Instead of God or the King’s right, they talked about the supremacy of the People (or Nation or Race or Proletariat or Community) over the individual. (“We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.” – Hillary Clinton)

In chopping off the King’s head – and by their own loud, ongoing proclamation – Big Government advocates have re-branded themselves as “progressives”. But they are not. They remain reactionaries. Because, in practice, these “progressives” still oppose the Lockean Revolution – which is (in Jonah Goldberg’s phrasing) the greatest gift to humankind of the last 1,000 years.

In point of fact, limited government – and the Rule of Law – are civilization and progress; while Big Government, however left-wingers may now justify it, is still as savage and reactionary as it ever was.

We who believe in freedom and limited government may often get called reactionaries, by left-wingers. Call it example #6553 of left-wing deflection and projection.

Turning the Tables on Wedding Cake Fascists

Posted by V the K at 3:03 pm - December 13, 2014.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy

A Christian group went to thirteen gay-owned bakeries and requested each of them to bake a cake promoting traditional marriage; and of course, recognizing that they were obligated to serve any customer regardless of ideological differences, they happily obliged.

Nope, just kidding. All thirteen not only refused, but some were very nasty about it.

Christian bakeries that refuse to make pro-homosexual marriage cakes are persecuted throughout America. They get sued, they get fined, they get death threats, and they lose their businesses. So we at Shoebat.com called some 13 prominent bakers who are either gay or pro-gay and requested that they make a pro-traditional marriage cake with the words “Gay marriage is wrong” placed on the cake. Each one denied us service, and even used deviant insults and obscenities against us. One baker even said that she would make me a cookie with a large phallus on it.

Video at link.

And you know what… I completely defend their right to refuse to bake a cake in support of something they don’t believe in; because I don’t believe people forfeit their Constitutional rights when they open businesses.

It’s the gay fascist left who are the hypocrites.

Also… racism.

V’s post about the fakeness of the feminist “College is a Rape Zone” narrative is spot-on. Having said that: Assaults on women do happen and let’s look at one, recent, compare-and-contrast example of the media’s coverage.

  • Obscure Congressional GOP staffer, Elizabeth Lauten, happens to notice on Facebook that Obama’s daughters roll their eyes way much: The media makes Lauten into a national crisis, even posting vans outside her parents’ house.
  • Obscure Congressional Democrat staffer, Donny Ray Williams Jr., actually drugs and rapes women: No national crisis. Bare-bones media coverage of him.

It seems to me that, if the feminists really want to publicize the problem of assaults on women and/or to attack institutions that would demean women by their silence on such assaults, they could start by attacking the mainstream and/or left-wing media for its Democrat-rapist-protecting, crazy-double standards.

And if the media were a kitty, she’d say:

Why would lefties think that gun owners are irresponsible, drunk and dangerous?

Filed under: Gun Control,Liberal Hypocrisy

Why? Could it simply be what lefties are used to, in their own selves? Because maybe some *left-wing* gun owners are irresponsible, drunk and dangerous?

Earlier this week, Missouri state Senator Jamilah Nasheed, a Democrat who has sponsored several anti-gun bills, was arrested while protesting in front of the Ferguson Police Department…

What made the arrest interesting is that Nasheed was carrying a 9mm handgun with extra ammunition.

Authorities also said Nasheed “smelled strongly of intoxicants.” But Nasheed refused to take a breathalyzer test…

“Sen. Nasheed, along with another male, entered the street, were told numerous times by not only by the St. Louis County commander, but other officers on scene, that they needed to leave the street or they were subject to arrest,” said St. Louis County Police Sgt. Brian Schellman. “They failed to comply, and they were taken into custody.”

The arrest was conducted without incident…But her arrest and news that she was in possession of a firearm brought charges of hypocrisy. According to attorney Eric Vickers, Nasheed needs the gun for her own protection and Nasheed says she holds a concealed carry permit. But if Nasheed had her way, other Missourians would not have the same right…
