Hillary Supporters Against the Bill of Rights

There is a strain of fascism that runs through the Modern Democrat Left. A decade or so a go, such a statement would have been outrageous, over-the-top, hyperbolic.

Nowadays, not so much, it seems. Check out what happens when a reporter asks Hillary Clinton supporters if they support a hypothetical plan to repeal the Bill of Rights.

Progressives Care About Power, Not People

Posted by V the K at 7:52 am - July 15, 2015.
Filed under: Liberalism Run Amok,Liberals

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.

So argues Kurt Schlichter.

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.

Remember the d-bag who made a YouTube video of himself berating a Chik-Fil-A employee because he disagreed with the owner of the chain’s support for traditional marriage? Thinking it would make him a big hero with the social left? He’s unemployed and living in an RV.

Adam Smith, 37, was the CFO of a medical device manufacturer in Arizona until the summer of 2012, when he started protested Chick-fil-A’s stance on gay marriage to an employee at a drive-thru.

“Chick-fil-A is a hateful company,” Smith told the employee. “I don’t know how you sleep at night,” Smith adds at another point. This is a horrible corporation with horrible values.”

After the employee, who never loses her composure, wished Smith a nice day, he responded, “I will. I just did something really good. I feel purposeful.”

Since then, Smith was fired from his job, and his wife and four children lost their home. The family was forced to sell and give away their possessions and move into an RV. He is now on food stamps, he says.

I feel sorry for his wife and kids.

Why haven’t his fellow SJW’s embraced him and supported him in his time of need? He was standing up for their cause, and none of them were willing to help him out? Sheesh, I guess they are too busy worrying about heteronormative microaggression triggers to help a brother out.

Liberals Really Are Less Patriotic than Conservatives

Posted by V the K at 11:48 am - February 24, 2015.

The left has been in a lather because Rudy Giuliani stated that a President who refused to wear an American Flag lapel pin while campaigning, grabbed his crotch during the pledge of allegiance, vowed to ‘fundamentally transform’ America, has apologized abroad for America’s “arrogance,” has said that American “exceptionalism” is no more real than Greek exceptionalism, and who has systematically undermined the economic and international standing of the United States through his policies… does not really love his country in the sense that the term “love of country” is generally understood.

The left gets pretty defensive when their patriotism is questioned, but the truth is, holding contempt for everything America is supposed to stand for (free enterprise, individual rights, freedom of religion) is a pretty unpatriotic belief system. The data back this up.

A Pew Research survey last year found that 46 percent of “steadfast conservatives” believed that the U.S. stands above all other countries; only 11 percent of “solid liberals” believed the same. Seventy-two percent of steadfast conservatives said they often feel proud to be an American; only 40 percent of solid liberals said they do.

This is really not a shocker. Most conservatives have liberal friends, we went to college with liberals, we were taught by liberals in schools, and we get liberal messages from a media that is about 96% controlled by liberals. We have heard you guys tearing down America, expressing contempt for America, American History, American values. So, don’t even play this game where you get all haughty and offended when your patriotism is questioned. Liberace used to get just as offended when people suggested he wasn’t into women.

Sororal Twaddle

Posted by V the K at 9:02 am - January 6, 2015.
Filed under: Liberals

A feminist at the Washington Post asked some of her feminist fem–buddies to state what they wished to femcomplish this year. For example,

My hope is that feminist, racial justice, reproductive rights and LGBT movements build a coalition that centers on the lives of women who lead intersectional lives and too often fall in between the cracks of these narrow mission statements.

Reading through these quotes, one notes the conspicuus absence of certain and particular things. You will not find, in any of them, an assertion of support for individual rights or free market principles. You will not find, in any of them, any quantifiable, concrete, or cogent goals, just the usual left-wing twaddle about collective struggle and empowering marginalized groups of people. Likewise, you will not find any deviation in thought; in fact, each feminist’s goal is pretty much a re-worded version of every othr feminist’s goals.

What is common throughout the quotes is an acceptance as fact of left-wing myths that have been thoroughly debunked in the real world. Myths such as womenfolk only earning seventy-something percent of what menfolk make, the myth that American college campuses are Rape Zones where gang-rapes are just a typical fraternity initiation ritual, and the myth that what happened in Ferguson was that a totes innocent black schoolboy was gunned down by a racist cop.

What these vacuous quotes really reveal is that there really is no feminist movement. Rather, the feminists are just one unimatrix in the Progressive Left Borg collective. There is no individuality, no freedom of thouhgt, no questioning of dogma; just drones mindlessly repeating the insipid pieties of the left.

The Narrow-Minded Provincialism of the Urban Left

Personally, I think living in New York City is de facto proof of mental illness. And it turns out, New Yorkers are getting increasingly particular about the hyperexpensive shoeboxes they are so proud live in. Yeah, they are willing to pay thousands of dollars a month to live in a space with the floorspace and amenities of a one-car garage in flyover country; but they are super-picky about the people living in the adjacent overpriced shoebox.

The apartment checked off every box on the buyers’ wish list: airy, gracious, great views of the park. It was in a terrific building, one of the most prestigious on the Upper East Side. The couple moved in, unpacked and tried without success over the next few months to get settled.

In the end, they packed up and moved out, said their broker, Barbara Fox, the founder of the Fox Residential Group, because of a pervasive sense that they didn’t belong. It wasn’t that their neighbors were standoffish, ignored them in the elevator or didn’t invite them to their parties — though in fact the whole thing did come down to parties.

“Frankly,” Ms. Fox said, “they just felt the building had too many Republicans.”

Progressive White Feminists Demand Law Against Black and Hispanic People Talking to them

Feminists are nuts, and also kind of racist, apparently. Last week, some feminists released a video of a woman walking around New York City and being subjected to catcalls and unwanted attention from Black and Hispanic males.

Now, some liberals are wondering whether there should be laws on the book to protect frail, delicate white women from being spoken to by members of the lesser races.

The New York Times wants to know if a law should shield white feminist women by preventing black and Hispanic men from speaking to them, and possibly offending their tender sensibilities.

Do We Need a Law Against Catcalling?” the august, Victorian newspaper asks.

Stipulated: Men should not behave this way in public; and for the most part, men don’t.

But this isn’t about standards of behavior, which the Left considers oppressive, patriarchal, microaggressive, and all that. This is really about power. This is about left-wing feminists asserting that they should be allowed to behave in public any way they want [ cf. “Slut-Walk.“]. However, they will use the power of the State to punish other people who behave in ways they do not approve of.

They want to act like Lena Dunham and be treated like Queen Victoria.

I guess that’s what you might call Liberal White Privilege.

Male Feminists Make It Hard For Other People to Take Them Seriously

A male feminist Huffington Post writer had a complete meltdown because Julia Pierson resigned as head of the Secret Service after a series of incidents such as letting a guy jump the fence and make it all the way into the White House and letting the president share an elevator with a criminal who was carrying a gun.

Now, granted, the USSS’s problem wasn’t that it was run by a woman, per se, but that it is a huge overfunded Government bureaucracy and part of the Federal culture of rewarding incompetence: See also, the EPA employee who spent his entire workday watching porn on Government computers and is still drawing a taxpayer-provided paycheck. But Clymer, being a progressive, cannot offer a critique of bureaucratic centralized Government because progressivism teaches that all-powerful Government is the solution to all problems. So, if a woman fails, it must be the fault of male privilege and the oppressive patriarchy of the penis-bearers.

Maybe he’ll feel better after putting on some lavender-scented candles, taking a long hot bath, and binge-watching Girls while eating Ben & Jerry’s directly out of the container.

And then there’s this guy….

The Parsimony of Leftists

Posted by V the K at 11:01 pm - August 17, 2014.
Filed under: Liberals

Interesting thread at AoSHQ today, in which commenters discussed their experiences with liberal family members and acquaintances.  This story kicked it off.

About twenty years ago we had a family reunion. Instead of meeting at some public park or somebody volunteering to host it at their house, as my parents did back in 1976 where I got drunk off my butt and smoked weed with another uncle (but that’s another story), we decided to have it at a Mexican restaurant close to where most of us lived. We arrived first and arranged with the management to reserve some tables. Soon the liberal contingent showed up and immediately started ordering, and they weren’t shy about scarfing many appetizers, entrees, and slamming down beer and margaritas like Prohibition had just ended.

And then, at the end of the evening, every member of the liberal side of the family got up and walked out, leaving their bills unpaid.

In retrospect, we should have made clear that it was expected that everyone would pay for their own meals. I think we expected that everyone would know this, but apparently it did not get communicated, and apparently we were very naive. The problem is, it would never occur to my father, my brother, or myself to go to a restaurant, gobble down a bunch of food, and then walk out without asking the obvious question, who’s paying for this?

As it turned out, my father was the one who ended up paying for it. I think my brother helped, but back in those days, I didn’t have much money, otherwise I would have helped, too, more than my own meal. We were in an unenviable situation where it would have been gauche to make our liberal relatives aware of their bad manners and irresponsible behavior. Looking back on it, perhaps we should have. But my dad was so pissed, he didn’t want anything more to do with them that evening. He just said screw it, and paid.

Turns out, a lot of AoSHQ morons have similar stories to share.  By consensus, this was apparently the threadwinner.

Crazy lib SIL is always bitching about the one per cent and then expecting, neigh demanding we pay airfare, rental cars, hotel bills, groceries, vacations, etc. She even expects us to pay for her daughters college.

Rather than take the train from NYC to New Jersey to visit us, she demanded hubby get her a limo. When her mother, my MIL had strokes and couldn’t take a previously planned vacation, she took it

You read these stories, and consider your own experience with leftists, and you can understand why Sandra Fluke… a woman whose sole political agenda is “somebody else should pay for my birth control” … is a Democrat heroine.

So, a Vegetarian Walks Into a Steakhouse…

Posted by V the K at 9:57 am - August 5, 2014.
Filed under: Liberals

It’s 11 PM on a Saturday night in the nation’s capitol. The scene is an Argentinian steakhouse, and the observer has been seated next to a a foursome of very loud people. Then, this happens.

“I want the tasting menu,” says one of the lady guests; the waiter regrets to inform that the whole table must partake (so as not to mess up the kitchen). The waiter departs for a moment while the couples decide what they want to do; springing to her defense, the gallant gentlemen assure that they are more than happy to also partake of the tasting menu. The waiter returns and takes their order, telling them (as my waiter had told my wife and I) that if you see something you like on the menu, just let him know and he’ll see if the chefs can work it in.

“I’m a vegetarian,” she says, and you can see the waiter (at the Argentinian steakhouse) stiffen a bit. “So if you could make all the dishes fish or vegetables, that’d be wonderful.” Confused—punch drunk, almost, at the audacity of the thing—the waiter stumbles away to consult with the chef. He comes back moments later with a compromise: They’ll allow her to skip the chef’s tasting menu if everyone else still wants to partake. It doesn’t make any economic sense, you see, for her to do it this way. She’d be better off just ordering veggies individually.

Miffed, she dismisses the waiter again. How dare they make the vegetarian feel unwelcome at the “contemporary Argentine steakhouse”! “I just wish the chef would do his job!” is the last thing I hear the outraged woman say.

So, basically, this woman walked into a steakhouse and insisted that everyone had to change the rules and accommodate her because her vegetarianism was so morally superior that it trumped everyone else’s comfort and established customs. And she was outraged at their unwillingness to accommodate her whims; because everyone else’s job, you see, is to accommodate her ego.

Metaphor for liberalism anyone?

The Left’s Childish View of Middle East Politics

What struck me, reading the lefty responses to a tweet in support of Israel, is just how childish the lefty position on Israel is.

The moderate left position (the hard left position on Israel being indistinguishable from Stormfront’s) seems to be “Of course, Israel should be allowed to defend itself but only if no one gets hurt, not even accidentally.” (This is the expressed position of the Obama Administration, which mouths moderate left rhetoric even though it is ideologically hard left.)

This position is so unrealistic it’s childish. It is literally something a child might wish for; because it is childish to believe that wants can be fulfilled without effort, and that actions can take place without consequences. They want some kind of magical war where Israel can defend itself from barbarians hiding behind children without hurting anyone.

Lefties apparently confuse “Iron Dome” with “Ironman.” The latter is a movie, lefties. Not real.

And the mainstream press practices their own form of moderate left camouflage. Their true hard left ideology tells them that all the conflict in the world is the result of oppressors taking from the oppressed. But in order to not be so obviously Marxist, they have to default the childish, moderate left position, that there really aren’t any bad guys among nations, and that each side must be equally wrong and culpable in any conflict. They don’t report the barbarism of Palestinians… using children as human shields, or shooting rockets loaded with ball bearings and razor blades at Israeli schools. To truly and honestly report on the barbarity of the Palestinians would violate the moderate left dogma that neither side in any conflict is morally superior to the other.

Very, very immature people are in charge of the USA at this juncture. Want proof? Here’s your proof.

To the True Believers on the Left, Obama Is Still The Lightworker

Posted by V the K at 8:08 am - July 18, 2014.
Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs,Liberals

Mark Morford was the “journalist” who offered, in 2008, that Obama was “The Lightworker.”

“Many spiritually advanced people I know identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment.”

Much to the GOP’s bitter revulsion, it turns out a calm, intellectual black man really can run an entire country – certainly far better than an inarticulate Texas bumbler, and even in the face of what is easily the most obstructionist, hateful, acidic and often downright racist Congress in modern memory. Quite an achievement, really.
And all he has to do to reach this assessment is ignore all of the scandals, ignore the president’s pattern of childish behavior, ignore the people who have died because of the incompetence of the VA, proclaim Obamacare a success despite none of its promises being fulfilled, ignore that Obama’s foreign policy has allowed an even-m0re-radical-than Al Qaeda terrorist group to take power over vast swaths of the Middle East, ignore the soaring debt,  ignore that income for working class families is down, ignore the collapsing border situation, and ignore the rapidly rising food and energy prices the Government isn’t talking about.
If you put all that aside, Obama’s presidency rises to the level of almost mediocre.

It’s Always Someone Else’s Fault

Commenter Steve notes that a shooting at the SFO Gay Pride parade has been blamed on people who had nothing to do with the actual shooting.

Three suspects from the East Bay have been implicated in connection with a shooting in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood that injured a woman, police said Thursday.

Kawme Williams, 18, of Oakland; Robert Smith, 20, of Hayward; and a 15-year-old Antioch boy were taken into custody after the shooting, which happened at the close of the Pride parade and celebration about 6:30 p.m. Sunday, police said.

The article doesn’t provide the race/ethnicity of the shooters…. which means, we can all safely assume the race/ethnicity of the shooters.

In the very first comment, a left-liberal nutjob blames republicans and the NRA.

How many senseless gun deaths and injuries will be enough for republicans and the NRA?

Until the left can actually find an actual Republican NRA member who commits a hate crime, they’ll just have to continue blaming them all by proxy.

Ridiculous Lefties, in daily life

When a viewpoint (leftism) goes against reason, logic and civil society – when its basic doctrine is in essence an attack on the rights of the individual – we should expect at least some of its adherents to be rude, “entitled” people in the encounters of daily life. Because the person and the viewpoint gravitate toward each other. Leftism fundamentally denies other people’s rights to life, liberty and property. Therefore, committed leftists should tend – not always, but on average and over time – tend to be unreasonable people who disrespect others.

It’s much better to laugh at these people than to feel upset by them. Consider this an open thread for posting your own favorite “ridiculous leftie encounter” stories, in the comments.

I’ll start with a very little one, that just happened. Picture a large gym, a bank of 12 large TVs shared by many exercise stations. A woman is exercising in front of TV #4. She watches #4 intently, with perhaps an occasional glance to TVs 3 or 5. TV #2 is far out of her field of vision, and clearly nothing that she’s watching. So she won’t mind if I change it, as I’m about to work in front of #2. I pick a sports channel. Oops! TV #2 had been set to MSNBC, and she’s a Ridiculous Leftie who must dictate everything that happens. She stops exercising and strides to the far wall just to change #2 back to MSNBC, glaring at me with vicious hostility. And then – get this – she *still* doesn’t watch it. (Probably since she would have had to strain her neck, to keep it up for long; or do even liberals dislike MSNBC?)

The story ended OK for me (I did speak with her and have reason prevail) but that’s enough. Tell yours! :-)

First, Everything Was Rape, Now, Everything Is Child Pornography

Twice in the last couple of weeks, leftists have compared something Conservatives believe in to being tantamount to supporting child pornography.

First, windbag New York Senator Chuck Schumer compared Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s support of the First Amendment to support for Child Pornography.

“Are you against anti-child pornography laws?” Schumer asked of Cruz, who was not present in the chamber at the time. “Is he against anti-child pornography laws? Is he an absolutist?” Schumer continued.

And of course, the left-wing media took their cue, as Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart decided to compare support for the Second Amendment and support for the Washington Redskins to support for Child Pornography.

And this all makes perfect sense to the left. If you think political speech should not be regulated by Congress, you must support child rape. If you support a Constitutional, Human Right of self-defense, you must support child rape. If you support

It’s a strategy that has served the left perfectly well so far. Are you opposed to Government-run health care? You must be a racist who hates blacks. Do you think voters should have to show ID to protect the integrity of the vote? You must be a racist who hates blacks. Do you think people should pay for their own contraception? You, sir, are practically a rapist.

And these idiotic ad hominems work. Good Lord, we have a stupid, stupid electorate.

Leftist Supports Deserter-for-Terrorists Swap on the Basis that Conservatives Are Criticizing it

Posted by V the K at 8:05 pm - June 2, 2014.
Filed under: Liberals

The Left: “The Right is questioning the swap of terrorists for Bergdahl. Therefore, rather than exercising any capacity for critical thought whatsoever, we will automatically and unquestioningly support Obama’s policy.

The Republicans’ audacity here is a bit beyond the usual. Let’s face it: There is no question that if President George W. Bush or a President McCain or President Romney had secured Bergdahl’s release in exchange for five Taliban prisoners at Gitmo, Republicans would be defending the move all the way. That business about notifying Congress? They’d have a dozen excuses for it. We got our prisoner of war home, they’d all be saying. That’s what matters.

But of course, that doesn’t matter to the right. No one outside their base cares much about Benghazi, but that hasn’t stopped them. They’ll keep pursuing Benghazi mostly to see if they can pin anything on Hillary, but when it comes to wet impeachment dreams, Benghazi may have just been pushed to the back seat. The crazy never stops.

The Elliot Rodger of Left-Wing Myth

Posted by V the K at 2:57 pm - May 25, 2014.
Filed under: Leftist Nutjobs,Liberals

The Left is making an intensive effort to change mentally-ill spree killer Elliot Rodger into a caricature that will better enable the agenda of disarming law-abiding citizens and demonizing White Males. Whatever the real Elliot Rodger was, the Narrative has decided that he is a misogynistic right-winger representing the White Patriarchal Rape Culture.

Just like the left created the myth of that nice, 12-year-old Honor Student, Trayvon Martin, an innocent who was brutally gunned down by a trigger-happy White Supremacist on his way home after buying some Skittles to further… well, essentially to further the same agenda.

Mythologies require archetypes, not real, actual people. It is highly inconvenient to the left that Mr. Rodger subscribed to a left-wing YouTube Channel and that three of his victims were men. Also, three of his victims, apparently, were killed with knives. But the Truth will not serve to advance the Left’s Agenda. Hence, all power to The Narrative.

#BringBackOurHurls

According to the Praetorian Media, the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag diplomacy was a smashing success and a testament to the brilliance of the Obama Administration. They have made this totally unbiased determination on the basis that… millions of people in North America, Europe, and Africa used the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag on Twitter.

See? It totally worked, you guys.

“But the girls haven’t been brought back,” you say. “But Boko Haram (not a terrorist organization according to Hillary Clinton’s State Department) is still running amok and killing people,” you said. You insist on using the conservative, racist, heteronormative, intolerant, cisgendered, patriarchal, capitalist, extremists standard that a strategy has to accomplish something material in order to be a success.

By that standard, you probably think Obamacare is a failure just because it hasn’t lowered health care costs, expanded consumer choice, or insured all the people who were uninsured, but instead has made things worse across the board.

That’s because you, bigot, don’t understand how success is supposed to be measured. “Accomplishments” just make people who don’t have accomplishments feel bad. The only real measure of success, in ProgressiveWorld, is getting large numbers of people to nod along with you; or very, very small numbers provided they are the right people.

Even if all the girls were beheaded the next day and their bodies tossed in a ditch, the left could still claim success because “that #hashtag sold, dammit!”
