Stole from here.
I hope future readers (if any) realize that the title is ironic. Left-liberals claim that we’re living in a climate of hate. If we are: It’s the hatred that is spewed by America’s Left.
“I would not advise people who feel strongly or are concerned about some of the issues that have been raised over the course of the campaign, I would not advise them to be silent,” Obama said during a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Obama said protests are just something Trump would have to get used to as the leader of the free world.
“I’ve been the subject of protests during the course of my eight years,” he said. “And I suspect that there’s not a president in our history that hasn’t been subject to these protests.”
…Obama [said] that the right of free speech should be exercised…
Let’s be clear: This is beyond baloney. Obama never faced protests where conservatives smashed windows, set fires, and physically attacked his supporters in the streets. Destroying property and people isn’t “free speech”.
As lefties told everyone last spring, when the Left’s paid agitators were trying to foment violence at Trump rallies: The leader’s duty to denounce the violence and insist on peaceful speech/protest from his supporters. That is Obama’s duty, now. Once more, the clown Obama disgraces America and himself.
And by the way: Obama didn’t face protestors in any number, until long after he was sworn in and did some (bad) things. While we’re at it, Merkel’s Germany does not let German citizens have free speech. The article describes Germans who were threatened with jail for criticizing Germany’s refugee influx on social media. Pathetic!
Some other items:
For reals – It seems like another good article. Shocking, because I remember Piers as one of the Left’s smuggest pompous asses. Is he joking here? Or has he changed?
Another one on gays and Trump, from Joseph R. Murray II.
I don’t know a great deal about it. This is a post where I’m not presenting information, so much as asking for it.
But, to set up the question: Via Instapundit we have this from The Hill: Breitbart News planning lawsuit against ‘major media company’.
Breitbart News is preparing a lawsuit against a “major media company” over claims that it is a white nationalist website…
The website has been under intense scrutiny since President-elect Donald Trump named Stephen Bannon as a senior White House counselor and strategist. Bannon is the former executive chairman of Breitbart News…
“…Breitbart News rejects racism in all its varied and ugly forms. Always has, always will,” [said a statement.] “The diversity of the company’s news coverage and its staff continue to embody Andrew Breitbart’s colorblind, distinctly American commitment to ‘E pluribus unum’—out of many, one.”
Critics have taken aim at the site’s coverage in recent days. While Bannon was executive chairman of Breitbart, the website published a story by David Horowitz referring to conservative commentator Bill Kristol as a “renegade Jew,” something that has been mentioned repeatedly in media coverage calling Breitbart a white nationalist website.
So, here’s what I “think I know”, at present.
Correct? Agree/disagree? What I would be most interested in here, is actual evidence – not mere assertion or opinion – that Steve Bannon and/or Breitbart are “white nationalists” or white supremacists. If any exists. (I have a gut-feeling against it.)
UPDATE – I didn’t see this coming: Trump Wants To Deport [Only] As Many Undocumented Immigrants As Obama Already Has.
UPDATE: Spengler (David P. Goldman) describes Bannon as “100% pro-Israel” – which would be unusual for a white supremacist. And the worst against Bannon that Jonah Goldberg can muster, is that Bannon is part of the alt-Right. Yawn, so is Milo. Sorry, Jonah. I do love you, most of the time.
I am open to a point suggested in the comments, that under Bannon’s leadership, Breitbart.com has declined journalistically. But that’s a different matter. Being a poor journalist (arguably) doesn’t make you a racist.
According to The Hill, Suicide hotlines receive record number of calls after Trump win.
Phones have been ringing off the hook at suicide hotlines since Donald Trump was named president-elect Tuesday.
According to multiple reports, many of those calling or texting into hotlines are members of the LGBTQ community, minorities and victims of sexual assault who are worried about Trump’s victory…
The article, to its credit, at least attempts to mention real-world facts that could be relevant:
On the campaign trail, Trump told Fox News that he hoped to put Supreme Court judges on the bench who could “change things” in regards to current rulings on same-sex marriage, adding that he wished the ruling “was done by state.”
Trump’s multiple accusations of sexual assault have also been triggers for women, as well as the lewd 2005 tape recording of Trump in which he makes light of sexual assault saying, “When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
But notice the bad job it does: the hysterical framing. For example, the repeated and vague use of the term “sexual assault” to imply great danger to women.
Fact: Trump does not condone rape and, unlike Bill Clinton, Trump has never been accused of rape. From what I remember of Trump’s comments, at worst, he condoned leaning in for a kiss or proposition after the other party had signaled her interest. And yes, that could be bad – because mistakes could be made; advances could be unwanted; cheating or diseases or painful regrets could happen if things did consensually go farther. Even so, sane people must admit that Trump does not rise to the level of “Bill Clinton bad”.
So, why this hysteria of feeling unsafe or “triggered” with Trump elected and not, say, with Bill Clinton around? Or with a prospect of Hillary Clinton being elected – given that she allegedly devastated the lives of women in helping to cover up her husband’s alleged raping? By any objective standard, the Clintons endanger women more than Trump does.
As to the gay-marriage aspect: The Supreme Court decision to make it nationwide was only last year. For thousands of years, gay men, women and teenagers have survived without that particular U.S. court decision. Believing that gay marriage should be decided by the States is hardly a dangerous position. Again, why the hysteria – among some people?
I believe the answer is this. Leftism harms you. As a philosophy, leftism discourages personal responsibility – and is objectively unrealistic. Therefore, it makes you less able to think clearly about your life; more mentally and emotionally vulnerable. Plus, in the specific case of 2016 and the Hillary Clinton campaign, leftism exposes you to manipulation via many untruths and exaggerations.
To anyone who may be genuinely suicidal over Trump’s election victory: You have my pity. Yes, that’s the correct word.
1. the feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the suffering and misfortunes of others.
Because your suffering, at least in regard to Trump, is unnecessary.
To be clear: I did not support Trump for President. And I have my doubts about what will happen now, with him. But I’m not suicidal about him. Neither was I suicidal about Obama. Why not? Because, at a fairly young age, I made a conscious choice to value my own life, to make it better no matter what, and to develop common sense and my ability to think about reality clearly.
To all sufferers of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome): There is still time for you to make good choices to improve your mental health and your life. I hope and pray that you will.
Item 1: Over 2 Million Hillary Supporters Sign Petition To Overturn Election Results. This is spectacular hypocrisy and as well, unawareness of American civic practices (or how American democracy is supposed to work).
Item 2: In October, John Podesta (Hillary campaign chair) had a lot of his emails exposed. In one, his associate oddly mentions how they all “conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry”.
Seeming to refer to the decades-long dumbing-down of America, Podesta’s associate said:
And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry. The unawareness remains strong but compliance is obviously fading rapidly.
(Emphasis added) Could these 2 developments be connected?
Finding things to be happy about in this election is rare. One of the few sunny spots is watching left-wingers become completely unhinged, especially as Hillary’s poll-numbers start to tank. (The Hillary campaign is looking like the cockpit in an episode of ‘Mayday’ about the time the automated cockpit voice is yelling “Pull up! Pull up!”) The left is trying to rescue Hillary by throwing one faux outrage after another against the wall in hopes of finding something that sticks.
Today, there was something about Trump’s adult offspring that was supposed to be bad, but all I saw of it was a crawl on CNN “Trump’s kids have turbulent night” or something. But, then they moved to trying to reignite the birther outrage, but that kind of totally backfired on them. (The media are suckers for the birther thing, and Trump played them like a golden fiddle, perhaps procured in Georgia during a contest with some guy with horns and a cape.)
So, later on they decided to try and gin up faux outrage by claiming… I am not making this up… that Trump called for Hillary’s assassination. What he said was that since Hillary is such a fan of Australian-style gun control, maybe she should disarm her Secret Service detail. Now, even a leftist Democrat operatives knows that he was just using hyperbole to make a point, but that didn’t stop them from pretending that this was a call for an assassination and demanding that the Secret Service lock Trump away.
The left knows that their voters are highly emotional, poorly informed, and can be manipulated if they can just find the right stimuli; like in 2012 when they convinced highly emotional, poorly informed feminist voters that Mitt Romney was going to outlaw tampons. Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” remark was part of this strategy. It was a message to highly emotional, poorly informed voters that might not like her very much that people that they hate (“Racists! And Sexists! And Xenophobes! Oh, My!”) would be happy if Trump won. And what she was saying was, “Isn’t making people you don’t like unhappy more important than my history of corruption and pathological inability to tell the truth?”
They’re going to keep flinging stuff until they find something that works.
In the meantime, they are just going totally bat-guano looney-tunes.
Kevin Williamson notes that America’s most progressive cities — New York, San Francisco, Detroit — are also its most segregated. And this is primarily due to progressive policies that discourage the development of affordable housing for the middle and lower classes.
New York City’s density is well under half that of such ordinary cities as Barcelona, Buenos Aires, or Warsaw. New York is remarkable among U.S. cities for its tall buildings – and remarkable among world cities for its lack of them. Only a tiny number of New York City residences — less than 2 percent — are located in tall buildings, meaning those 20 stories or taller, far less than in comparable cities around the world. The number is even lower for cities such as Los Angeles (which actually has a higher population density than New York) and San Francisco. Building taller buildings makes urban residential real estate less expensive per square foot — you can have higher buildings or higher prices. New York, where the nice progressives want to put caps on tall buildings, has chosen higher prices — and, therefore, economic segregation, pushing the poor farther into the Bronx or New Jersey.
I don’t expect many comments on this post. This kind of thing — the dynamic interaction of policy and demographic effects — interests me, but it isn’t everyone’s cup of Earl Grey.
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Transsexual, Intersex, Asexual, Pansexual, Omnisexual, Pedosexual, Robosexual, Giraffosexual, Ampusexual, Necrosexual, Paraphile, Algamatophile, and Florasexual Resource Center at the University of California at Davis publishes a list of words and phrases that hurt their precious widdle feelers. e.g
Erases the identities of people who are in the room. Generalizing a group of people to be masculine.I’m being such a fat-ass/I’m being so fat right now!
Demeans and devalues fatness/fat bodies, reinforces harmful assumptions that fat people are gluttonous and are fat because they have no restraint around food. Also implies that there is an acceptable amount of food to eat and anything more is disgusting, or that enjoying food too much is disgusting.
These are listed under the heading “Words That Hurt.”
How about “Go die in a fire you limp-wristed, painty-waisted, feeble-minded, bed-wetting, biscuit-sniffing, douchebag, pissant embarrassments to every self-respecting gay man, woman, and sapient lifeform in the observable universe.”
Do those words hurt?

Why are the SJWs, &c., so annoying? Why do they keep lecturing, on and on, about how right they are and how bad we are? Why are they coming unglued when, if they had had a bit of patience and kept working slowly and carefully, most of the frogs wouldn’t have noticed the increasing heat?
Why did they suddenly kick up the gas to stupid-high? Now that we are in real trouble, why do they start with the prepared speeches about how feeble we are compared to them, how inevitable our defeat is, how the world will soon be theirs! Yadda yadda yadda.
“Mwah Ha Ha! You have lost, Evil White Patriarchy. Soon, the world will be ours! A marvelous utopia of Socialism, Transgenderism, Environmentalism, and Mohammedanism.”
Answer: they are monologuing.
They have us tied up and our utility-belts, magic rings, pearl-handled Colts and our matched .45 caliber automatics taken away, but they’ve thrown them on a table where we can still see them, and they don’t know what we keep up our sleeve.
“And there is nothing you can do to stop us. Mwah ha ha ha ha ha.”
So have hope – we know how this ends, who gets socked in the jaw, handcuffed, and taken back to the asylum.
Let us hope so.

This shouldn’t even have to be said. Yet, making a simple statement of truth, of reality, of fact is a radical and dangerous act in a society that has thrown not just common sense but any semblance of sanity out the window; defenestrated that is.
Apparently, the substitution of the word “sex” with the vague word “gender” was the hobbyhorse of John Money back in the 1950s. Money was the corrupt sexologist who is most notorious for utterly ruining the life of David Reimer by talking his parents into raising David as a girl after a botched circumcision left him without a penis. Money drooled at the chance to experiment on little David because David happened to have an identical twin brother who could serve as a control for Money’s little inquest. In the 1970s, feminists took off with Money’s new lexicon, and we’ve been sloppily repeating the word “gender” ever since.
“Gender” doesn’t mean anything concrete when applied to human identity because “gender identity” is all about a state of mind that’s not rooted in any objective reality. Sex, on the other hand, is quite definitely rooted in physical reality. Yet when “sex” makes an appearance in “gender identity non-discrimination laws,” it is masked as something that doesn’t exist in reality. A standard definition of “gender” is that it means someone’s perception of self (as male, female, both, or neither) “whether or not it aligns with the sex they were assigned at birth.” Part of the premise of transgender law is to get you to believe that your sex was erroneously—and even maliciously—“assigned” to you at birth.Jurisdiction after jurisdiction has signed on to that canard. It forces onto us a fraudulent premise that denies the reality of our own physical bodies.
Clarence Henderson, the chairman of the North Carolina Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission (i.e. a real Civil Rights leader) thinks the Obama Regime’s rhetoric about Transgender Bathroom Rights is crap.
Recently, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch compared HB2 to Jim Crow. Jim Crow laws were put into place to keep an entire race positioned as second-class citizens. HB2 simply says that men and women should use the restroom of their biological sex in government buildings and schools. This comparison is highly offensive and utterly disrespectful to those families and individuals who have shed blood and lost lives to advance the cause of civil rights. I take this as a personal slap in the face because I was an active participant in the civil rights movement.
During the Jim Crow Era, we stared down the nozzle of firehoses, felt the piercing bite of police dogs, dangled from trees after being strung up by an angry mob, all because of the color of our skin. Our businesses were burned, churches bombed, communities destroyed, all because of the color of our skin. We had to drink at separate water fountains, shop at different stores and even had to sit at the back of the bus, all because of the color of our skin. All this and more took place after enduring 400 years of arguably the most heinous crime in history – slavery.
I kind of sense that this whole left-wing obsession with “Transgender Rights” is because after electing a black(ish) president and forcing gay marriage by judicial fiat, there pretty much aren’t any real civil rights struggles left. But the Civil Rights movement is the one thing the left thinks it got right, and all the old leftists want to relive that “struggle” (even if they only watched it on TV from the safety of an all-white neighborhood) and all the young leftists want to feel like they’re doing something important to “change the world.” So, of course, the slightly hurt feelings of gender appropriators have to be elevated to the same plain of people who were denied rights under the color of (Democrat-imposed) laws and were hit with firehouses and bombs. FWIW: I was in North Carolina this week for business. Both of the in-state airports I passed through had unisex bathrooms. The company that hosted us had nothing but single-occupant unisex bathrooms. The Left is making a big stink about nothin’.
On a related note, the Charlotte (NC) Observer — in defense of Transgender Bathrooms — says the sight of male genitalia isn’t a big deal and women just need to get over it. [Tell that to college feminists. Or, try to.]
Also, apparently boys have periods now, because leftists are insane.
Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, met at a Bible study for young adults and decided to start a small business, Brush and Nib Studio, which creates customized hand painting, hand lettering, and calligraphy for weddings and other events. When they started Brush and Nib, Joanna and Breanna didn’t leave their artistic and religious beliefs behind. Those beliefs provide their business its very purpose—to use their artistic talents full-time to proclaim their vision of what is good and beautiful.If they dare disobey, Phoenix can incarcerate them for six months and fine them up to $2,500 for each day of disobedience.
But shortly after starting their business, Joanna and Breanna discovered that Phoenix law requires them to create art endorsing same-sex wedding ceremonies because they create art for opposite-sex wedding ceremonies. The same law prohibits Joanna and Breanna from publishing statements explaining the artistic and religious beliefs that require them to only create art consistent with their religious belief supporting one-man/one-woman marriage.
If they dare disobey, Phoenix can incarcerate them for six months and fine them up to $2,500 for each day of disobedience.
Remember when the left used to chant “Keep the Government Out of Our Bedrooms?” Ancient History. The modern Social Left is all in on Government Regulation of Intimate Human Relations.
The American Law Institute (ALI) will vote at its convention this coming week on whether to adopt a model penal code that would make “affirmative consent” when it come to sexual relations its official policy. Affirmative consent — or “yes means yes” — policies have already been adopted by many colleges and universities, and have become law in California and New York.
“Such a definition would shift the burden of proof onto the accused, something not currently permitted in the U.S. criminal justice system. The accused would have to prove that they received “communicated willingness.” This would mean that any time someone engages in sexual activity, they not only have to make sure they obtain this specific form of consent, but also proof of this consent. “
Consent forms for sex; brought to you by the Tranny Bathroom/Gay Marriage coalition.
[Don’t expect much posting from me today tomorrow; I’m off to North Carolina for a business meeting. So help me, if one more person says “Make sure to use the right bathroom, har-de-har-har,” I’m going to kirk.
In California, a one-party progressive state, the Democrats have unlimited power to enact their preferred policies. For example, California is vigorously enacting the two pillars of Progressive public safety policy. First, they are enacting laws designed to make it impossible for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves against criminals. Second, they are releasing from prison tens of thousands of burglars and drug dealers (which progressives call “nonviolent offenders,” or “the urban Democrat voting base”).
Because, according to progressive, politically-correct logic: More criminals + fewer law-abiding people with guns = Crime free, Star Trekkian Utopia.
But are these enlightened policies actually working as expected? Well… yeah, pretty much.
FBI Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Reports show that the property crime rate in San Francisco surged to 667 per 100,000 residents in the first half of 2015. Long Beach was 147 per 100,000; Los Angeles was 145 per 100,000; and Albuquerque was 142 per 100,000.
The rest of the top ten included Sacramento (86 per 100,000), San Jose (66 per 100,000), Baltimore (31 per 100,000), Nashville (11 per 100,000), San Diego (1 per 100,000), and Jacksonville (-25 per 100,000).
So, five of the top ten cities for property crime are in California. (But I’m guessing, most of that crime is in poor and middle class neighborhoods, not the gated communities where Democrat politicians live.) Good-going, progressives!
Meanwhile, in Switzerland, it is once again demonstrated that … as a consistent statistical fact … more guns in the hands of law-abiding people results in less crime. (Too bad progressives suck at math.)
In the video below, you can watch the Democrat Establishment candidate hold forth on her view that “White Extremism” and “Police Violence” are as dangerous as ISIS, and that the Police wantonly terrorize minority communities.
Mrs Clinton has always been pretty radical; she wrote a 92-page senior thesis on radical leftist icon Saul Alinsky and exchanged letters with him. But there was a time when the only Democrat candidates who would openly bash the police and civil society as part of a campaign were running for the Berkeley City Council. Mrs. Clinton is letting her radical flag fly because she is in a primary campaign with an open socialist who is beating her like Ronda Rousey. Her pandering rhetoric about white terrorism and racist police tells us more about the Democrat electorate than it does about her.
Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Rolling Stone to do a big story on this. Also for the American Feminist Branch of the Democrat-Media Complex to raise any alarms about the Regime’s plan to add hundreds of thousands of additional Momhammedan “refugees.”
They’re too busy planning the theme for the next ‘Slut-Walk.’ I think they’re going with “Smash the Patriarchy.”
Robert Stacy McCain reports on a school in Kansas where an “anti-bullying” curriculum has become an excuse for educrats to show propaganda films instead of teaching math, history, and science.
In Conway Springs, Kansas, a middle school teacher decided his eighth-grade history students needed to see a film “that depicts a fictional world in which heterosexual children are bullied by homosexual classmates”:
The movie he showed his eighth-grade students last month portrays a heterosexual girl being raised in a dystopian society where homosexuality is the norm.
(The Women’s Studies department at Bryn Mawr College?)
The girl is bullied by classmates — to the indifference of several teachers and other adults — until she commits suicide.
No one will ever accuse left-wing propaganda of being subtle; it makes the Red Scare movies of the 1950′s look like Masterpieces of Nuance.

Hi folks! (Jeff/ILC) I haven’t posted here for several months. Where have I been?
As a rule, I dislike negative people; I like problem-solvers and try to be one. But sometimes, even a problem-solver can get negative because problem-solving starts with acknowledging reality, and the reality may be very negative.
This is the situation I’m in, with regard to the United States of America. By my guess, Americans today fall into roughly four categories:
When I was a kid, things were not much better; but they may have been a little bit better. The proportions seemed to be more like 30, 30, 20, 20. So the balance was a little more in favor of the good people.
I believe that, by now in 2015, the balance has tipped against the nation’s remaining good people. As a result:
I gotta be honest: It’s depressing. As I survey this post-modern, corrupt, neo-socialist wreck of a nation that had once proudly taught the world about human freedom and productivity, I feel disgust and disappointment. I’ve been absent from the blog because I hit a point where I simply did not want to pay any attention to current events. And because I (still) feel uncomfortable writing at a blog with the word “patriot” in the title when, in Obama’s America, there is increasingly less that is worth defending.
I love and support the America that its Founders had intended: a beacon of liberty. I do not love or support (except by paying a ton of taxes, in cash) the America that we have in the year 2015: a deceit-filled, national-socialist travesty whose eventual crash (and/or takeover by China) can no longer be prevented.
That’s at the political level. On a personal level: I have to admit that it took me a couple decades to “get it” – that is, to understand real economics, psychology and morality and how they should interact to make a free society. It took me awhile, because I was mis-educated originally (was told a lot of the standard lies), and because my general desire to love people and give them credit made it hard to disbelieve the lies. It took me a long time; so why not be patient with the many people today who “don’t get it”?
Here’s why not. Yes, it took me a long time; but I did “get it”, because of my lifelong commitment to figuring out what’s real and what isn’t real, what works and what doesn’t work. I don’t see most people making even half of such an effort. I see a majority of people lying to themselves and others, spouting crap, not caring that they’re spouting crap, and treating their families like crap – as they indulge themselves with daily marijuana, coke, alcohol, iPorn, affairs/hookups, all-day gaming or other destruction. Which they rationalize.
One of the lesser fronts in the culture wars is in the area of science fiction writing. But even here, the keyboard warriors of the social justice left carry on their tireless War on Joy.
The facts of this case are the same as in gaming and in every other industry that social justice warriors touch. They do not care about art forms. They do not care about science fiction. They do not even particularly care about talent. They care about enriching and ennobling themselves and their friends, and pushing a twisted, discredited, divisive brand of authoritarian politics.
The skirmish is between the Sad Puppies and the Social Justice Warriors. The Sad Puppies are group of science fiction writers and fans who believe that works should be judged on their quality and entertainment value, not whether they serve The Agenda. Their opposite numbers are entrenched writers and editors who believe that the value of a literary work is based solely on A. NOT being written by a white male and B. serving to advance the left’s social agenda.
The Sad Puppies were successful in organizing their nominations to SciFi writing’s Hugo Awards such that, for the first time in many years, a number of nominees were based on actual literary merit and not identity politics.
The SJW’s would have none of that, such that they decided that No Awards were preferable to awards that might be won by one of the Pale Penis People. They organized a campaign advising their brownshirts that if there were no works in a category with correct politics, they should all vote “No Award.”
The results of Hugo Awards voting were ugly and unprecedented. 5 major categories including best novella and best short story went with “no award.” To put that in perspective, in the previous 60 years of Hugo Awards, a total of 5 “no awards” have been given previously.
Puppies supporters say that slew of “no award” wins this year can at least partially be attributed to the fact that SJW votes were concentrated on that choice, while Puppies votes were distributed between as many as four deserving authors.
Maybe this topic isn’t as important, in the long run, as Obama’s Deal with Iran that lets the Mullahs inspect their own facilities for compliance, or the domination of public education by doctrinaire Marxists, but it is a reminder that be it a Lesbian Luau, a Christian-owned bakery, or the SciFi aisle at Barnes & Noble; there is no respite from the bullying and propaganda of the social left.
The Progressive Left has one agenda above all others — to acquire all the power they can and hold onto it for as long as possible, and they don’t care how many other people suffer or die so long as they get power.
A nice young girl murdered by a released illegal alien with a gun lost by yet another incompetent government flunkie? That’s not a narrative they want. They want the votes of the illegal alien lobby. They want the votes of the limo libs who pat themselves on their backs for designating their filthy cesspool of a burg a “sanctuary city.” And they sure don’t want to insult their unionized federal hack constituency by focusing on yet another of its failures.
And why doesn’t Obama speak up about the daily massacres of black and Hispanic men on the streets of Chicago and other big cities? Because to do so would demonstrate the utter moral bankruptcy of the blue state model that nurtures the liberal machine. The most dangerous place in America for a minority is in a Democrat-run big city, and that fact is just not useful. It can’t demonize any political opponents, and to bring attention to it would only give rise to demands for accountability for the total failure of urban Democrat rule.
So Barack Obama and his liberal friends chose to just let people die. White, black, Hispanic – at least in their complete apathy the progressives have finally stopped discriminating. They judge everyone, of all colors and creeds, solely on the content of their political utility.
