The Left Combines Their Hatred of Middle America with Their Hatred of Guns

Posted by V the K at 12:13 pm - May 30, 2015.
Filed under: Gun Control,Post 9-11 America

A group of gun-hating leftists on the East Coast are appalled that one of the states in flyover country has adopted laws that it does not agree with; laws that enable citizens to exercise their 2nd Amendment and Human Rights of self-defense. They are urging their Prius-driving, Whole Foods-shopping membership to boycott Kansas. (Graphic below fold)

Of course, this is a typical leftist ploy for easy sanctimony; make a big deal out of not doing something you were never going to do anyway. What left-winger would visit Kansas voluntarily?

And they are welcome to spend vacations in cities that have super-strict “common sense” gun control laws like Chicago, Baltimore, and New York City.

Sidebar 1: The ultimate goal of every gun control organization is to outlaw the private ownership of firearms.

“The first problem is to slow down the number of handguns being produced and sold in this country. The second problem is to get handguns registered. The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition–except for the military, police, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors–totally illegal.” – Nelson Shields, founder of Handgun Control, Inc., the forerunner of the Brady Campaign

What the leftist gun-haters are pushing currently and always are steps along this agenda; the constant call for universal background checks, for example, is because background checks will set up a de facto national gun registry; a database with the name, address, and particulars of everyone who buys a gun. Some blue states like New York and New Jersey have already set up draconian restrictions on ammunition purchase that congressional Democrats want to make national.  Since the SCOTUS has held that the right to self-defense is an individual not collective right, the left seems to be, for the moment, aiming their sights at reducing the 2nd Amendment to a symbolic right, “The rights of certain people to keep and bear a very limited number of arms under conditions that make them ineffective as instruments of self-defense shall not be infringed as much as we would like.” [“We will still allow you to have one gun and one bullet. See, you’re bearing arms!] [They would also like to make ‘Free Speech’ a conditional, symbolic right, too.]

Sidebar 2: The gun control debate is one of the lines that are really splitting the states. New York, California, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Maryland have passed draconian gun control laws, while states like Texas are embracing a more Constitutionalist vision of the right to self-defense. Maryland’s laws were a significant factor in my recent decision to relocated to a state with much more favorable laws. It shows where the political faultlines are shaping up and how the country will eventually, inevitably, split up.

If only the left applied the same slogans to guns as they claim to apply to abortion and gay marriage; if you don’t like guns, don’t own one. And if the right approached gun rights the same way the left approaches abortion and gay marriage, they would demand that the state subsidize gun purchases and that businesses be forced to sell guns whether they wanted to or not.

Progressive Middle School Teacher Fired for Letting Kids Have Sex in His Classroom

A Georgia middle-school teacher embracing the progressive ethos that since kids are gonna do it anyway, they should be encouraged to explore sexuality in a safe, responsible way… he decided to let them have sex in his classroom.

Considering we have a Safe School Czar who encouraged teenagers to have sex with strangers in bus station bathrooms,  the classroom seems like kind of a step up from that.

But instead of rewarding him for creating a progressive, sex-positive, inclusive environment… the school board fired him

Crazy, right?

I mean, it’s not like he was one of those right-wing nutjobs who encourage kids to be abstinent.

The Madness of Menz

Filed under: Ideas & Trends,Post 9-11 America

The cable series ‘Mad Men’ – which leftists love, apparently, because it’s some sort of bash on Republicans — finaled last night. But before it went, it inspired an article that probably raised some hackles. “New York Women Secretly Wish They Lived in the Mad Men Era.”

In synopsis, it’s because women really came out on the short side of the sexual revolution. Most women, deep down, want a man who is professionally successful and committed to a relationship. Because of the sexual revolution, men have easy access to sex and no longer have to commit to women to get it. And the rise of slacker culture means even men who live in their parents’ basement can still get sex, or get enough pr0n that sex is not a priority.

Here’s the bit that stuck out for me.

Says Ellie, 42, a student on Manhattan’s East Side who used to work in publishing, “Technology is supposed to bring people closer, but especially in the context of dating it pushes people further apart. It used to be a guy had to call and leave a message and you called him back and you made a date.”

Now, says Ellie, it’s just “texting that leads nowhere.”

Or… or… maybe men see getting involved with a 42 year old student as a thing that leads nowhere.

For years, the Michigan’s Womyn’s Music Festival had a strict “no penises” policy. Not only were men excluded, but even male toddlers, and … naturally… no transgendereds.

But, like everything else in society, liberty eventually had to give in to political correctness, and transgendereds will now be allowed at the festival over the objections of purists who believe that someone with a penis isn’t really a woman. Although it is not clear from the article whether only men who identify as womyn are allowed, the article isn’t clear how it works for womyn who identify as men, or how it applies to the 56 other genders.

Anecdote: In Which I Live Out a Liberal Gay’s Nightmare Scenario

I visited my son in West Virginia today. I wanted to try out my new .308 — which is brilliant, BTW. I have never been a good shot by any measure, but I was nailing targets at 150 yards — so we went to the outdoor rifle range at a nearby state park. It was unusually active today, and at one point, there were about a dozen locals besides of us, and almost all of them were firing AR-15 variants. (I’m sure some of them were ghost guns capable of firing 30 magazine clips per second.)

So there I was,  surrounded by rednecks with “assault rifles;” a liberal gay’s nightmare.

But I felt perfectly safe, and found the other shooters perfectly friendly.

Afterwards, we went here for lunch.

Gay College Leftists H8 Free Speech and Other Freedoms

Gay Leftists at George Washington University are demanding that conservative groups be defunded and their charters revoked for not participating in mandatory indoctrination sessions and for inviting speakers the Gay Left disapproves of.

If GW YAF refuses to participate in safe zone trainings that are aimed at increasing safety and understanding, then they should be considered a hate group, and thereby, be revoked of all funding from the Student Association at The George Washington University….Lastly, their decision to bring Rick Santorum- a man who has compared homosexuality to pedophilia and beastiality- to campus the day before Trans Day of Visibility underscores their intolerance and pattern of hate.

Kurt Schlichter pretty much nailed it.

Modern academia is a refuge and sanctuary for the left within our culture where the inhabitants can devote their full efforts to destroying the very society that subsidizes them without having to worry about actually producing anything of value. It’s an intellectual and moral cesspool. Just look at some of the nightmares that have slithered out of our universities and into mainstream society in just the last few decades – political correctness, hook-up culture, Barack Obama.

Dan Savage Still a Miserable, Hateful Person

Filed under: Post 9-11 America

From Newsbusters

Radical LGBT activist Dan Savage plumbed new depths of lewd anti-Catholicism in a series of Twitter posts on Saturday. The hypocritical “anti-bullying” activist pointed out how a “‘repair’ on this statue of John Paul II makes him look like he just stuck 2 fingers in a squeaky clean altar boy.”

Left-wing anti-Christians still dredge up the Catholic molestation scandals from 30-40 years ago and act like it’s an ongoing thing even though the Church has cleaned up its act in that department. Whenever you hear about a molestation scandal, it’s almost always some middle-aged dude “remembering” that he was molested back in the 1970s and demanding money. While it’s true that those things did happen and church officials handled them terribly at the time, it’s not something that’s common.

One place where sexual abuse of minors is a common occurrence and where officials still cover it up is in the American Public Schools System. But since Teacher’s Unions are part of the Grand Coalition of the Left and give generously to Democrat Campaigns, Dan Savage and the rest of the left give them a complete pass for their sexual abuse.

Oh, Good Lord…

Meanwhile, over at Wesleyan University (annual tuition, $47,972)…

Open House is a safe space for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, Queer, Questioning, Flexual, Asexual, Genderf–k, Polyamourous, Bondage/Disciple, Dominance/Submission, Sadism/Masochism (LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM) communities and for people of sexually or gender dissident communities. The goals of Open House include generating interest in a celebration of queer life from the social to the political to the academic. Open House works to create a Wesleyan community that appreciates the variety and vivacity of gender, sex and sexuality.

Why not LGBTTQQFAGPBDSMPEDOK9DOA? Why all the hating on pedophiles, zoophiles, and necrophiles? So much for being inclusive.

How far can this go? In the words of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, “Plenty more letters in the alphabet.”

The Trouble with Jeb

Posted by V the K at 7:32 am - February 27, 2015.
Filed under: Jeb Bush,Post 9-11 America

Cracked.com (which has started to list decidedly to port) has a pretty good article on how Hollywood misrepresents poor folks.  Basically, Hollywood has no concept of the money problems faced by real lower income people. In TV and movies, they live the same consequence free lifestyles as the moneyed Hollywood elite; never fretting about a car repair, a reckless expenditure, or a sudden need to travel.

Our political elite is equally as ignorant of how people in the lower three-fifths of the income quintiles live.

Take Jeb Bush for example. (But this is just as true of Hillary, Biden, Obama, or most any other name-brand politician.) Do you think he has ever had to sweat losing his job because his car broke down and he didn’t have the money to fix it? Do you ever think he was kept at night worrying how he was going to make the mortgage payment *and* pay for his kid’s orthodonture? Do you think any of them has ever seen the discount rack at Kohl’s? (Scott Walker has.)  Do you think he’s ever saved money at Food Lion (or as we call it, Nom Kitteh) by buying meat with the orange sticker on it? Or even been inside a Nom Kitteh for that matter?

All the Bushes are Patricians, Gentry with the same view of the American middle class and working class as their openly Progressive Democrat counterparts. They see us as peasants and customers for Government.  “Kinder Gentler Gentler Nation” (Bush 41) “Compassionate Conservatism” (Bush 43) “Right to Rise” (Bush Wannabe) are all the same damn thing; lipstick slogans on the pig of Progressive, Big Government, Rockefeller Republicanism.

It’s why they make no distinction between Americans and illegal immigrants; alike, we are all the peasant class to be ruled over. No one in the Bush family is ever going to lose out on a job because an immigrant will work cheaper; nor are they going to miss out on an educational opportunity because Affirmative Action will favor immigrants, illegal and otherwise. Policies that beggar the working classes only mean more dividends in their portfolios.

And, Ra forbid, Bush somehow manages to become President, he’s only going to surround himself with other clueless 1%er elitists. While I am sure the guy means well, like the rest of the political class, he is so detached and insulated from the consequences of his policy choices that he cannot help but be indifferent to damage he causes.

Snowden watch

As I’ve blogged before, I have mixed feelings about Edward Snowden and his revelations about U.S. government spying on everybody. I understand why some consider him a traitor – because yes, we do need to fight Islamic terrorism.

And I understand why some consider him a hero – because we need to fight Islamic terrorism with appropriate tools; not tools that expand government power to the point where it could easily be used (and perhaps already gets used?) for purposes of tyranny. With that in mind, here are a couple of news items:

  • China drops Apple, Cisco, Intel and other U.S. tech leaders from its “approved state purchase lists”. China’s action may have several motives; but fear of the expansive NSA spying (that Snowden revealed) is surely among them.
  • Snowden gets libertarian, arguing for limited government and the right of the governed (us) to reject excessive government control.
    There must always be a balance of power between the governing and the governed…

    Our rights are not granted by governments…They are inherent to our nature. But it’s entirely the opposite for governments: their privileges are precisely equal to only those which we suffer them to enjoy.

    A viewpoint which all Americans ought to support, considering our origins.

Your thoughts?

While we’re at it: According to The Guardian (a left-wing British paper), Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago Police are running their own black site for secret interrogations – and not just for anti-terrorism. True? Exaggerated? From the comments: A Chicago cop says it’s BS.

News From the Social Justice Front Lines

In Oakland, radical leftists are indoctrinating children to carry out their Stalinist agenda.

Black Lives Matter activists have formed a girl scout troop of sorts in Oakland California to indoctrinate the female children of activists from the city.

Calling themselves the “The Radical Brownies”, the group meets for marches, protests and arts and crafts and seemingly eerie looking maneuvers that resemble militant-style poses.

And just as reminder of the high moral character of people supported by the SJW’s of #BlackLivesMatter, consider this wonderful young gentleman from Michigan. As he was being sentenced to life in prison for robbing, brutalizing, and murdering two teenage boys, he stood and made this statement.

“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner,” Young said. “And I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who was murdered in cold blood – and in respect for the peaceful protest, I want to say hands up don’t shoot. Black lives matter – that’s it your honor.”

He should be receiving his honorary degree from Columbia U any day now; and perhaps his own show on National Public Radio.

Bwahahahahaha!

The Narrative Decides What Becomes News

Posted by V the K at 7:48 pm - December 8, 2014.
Filed under: Media Bias,Post 9-11 America

Jeff’s post on St. Matthew of Wyoming got me to thinking about narratives, and how the MFM is incapable of covering stories that don’t fit the narratives they believe in.

In the Matthew Shepard case, the story went national because it fit a progressive narrative: the one that goes “Red state America is filled with bigots who hate and murder gays.” The near simultaneous rape and murder of thirteen year old Jesse Dirkhising by two gay men in Arkansas was not national news; because there is no narrative that permits gay men to be portrayed as sexual predators.

We see the same thing with the national coverage of the deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner.  These stories are not only covered because of The Narrative, but have to be carefully shaded to fit The Narrative that racist cops kill young black men with impunity because America is a racist country where black lives don’t matter. Meanwhile, three white cops have been indicted over the last four months for shooting unarmed black men — in red southern South Carolina — but this is not worthy of wall-to-wall national media attention because it doesn’t fit the Narrative. (It will become newsworthy only if they are acquitted.)

And then, there is the University of Virginia gang-rape story, which has since been revealed to be a hoax (probably), but which gained national attention because, like the Duke lacrosse case before it, it fit a feminist-promoted Narrative of colleges as rape zones where privileged white males ran amok. In 2013, a thirteen year old girl was gang-raped by illegal immigrants. But The Narrative insists that illegal immigrants are victims, not perpetrators, so that story was not covered by the national media.

Above all the other Narratives is the one the progressive left believes above all the others; that middle America is bigoted, hateful, and potentially violent. For that reason, negative stories about gays, illegal immigrants, or Muslims must be suppressed; lest Middle Americans pause from raping their sister-cousins, pick up their AR-15′s, and begin shooting everybody who talks with a lisp or whose skin is more than a shade darker than Katy Perry from the backs of their pick-ups.

To paraphrase Joe Goebbels, the progressive left believes that if they create a Narrative and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.  But The Narrative can be maintained only for such time as the Media-Government complex can shield the people from its political and economic consequences. It thus becomes vitally important for the Media-Government complex to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of The Narrative, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the  Media-Government complex.

This last is why the Media-Government complex is so quick to attack those who dissent from the narrative as “Deniers.”

MFM Defends the Conservative Record of … Jeb Bush?

Posted by V the K at 8:40 am - December 8, 2014.
Filed under: Jeb Bush,Post 9-11 America

Conservative Radio host Mark Levin … who has an audience size that is the envy of every working network journalist … described Republican Jeb Bush (who may run for president in 2016) as a “good moderate Democrat.” This did not sit well with with the Mainstream Media, some members of which felt obliged to testify on behalf of Mr. Bush’s conservative bona fides.

Jeb Bush. Not conservative enough. Try as I might, it remains impossible to see these two concepts as even remotely related. John Ellis Bush, the second son of George Herbert Walker Bush and Barbara Bush, who during his first run for Florida governor in 1994 cheerfully called himself a head-banging conservative, a hang-’em-by-the-neck conservative … who during his second run for Florida governor in 1998 had to craft for himself a more compassionate persona so as not to scare off independent voters … that Jeb Bush has come to be viewed with suspicion by the uber-conservative, Tea Party wing of his Republican Party?

One can conclude from this that… um… the MFM really, really want Jeb Bush to be the Republican nominee against the Hillary in 2016. Because, obviously, they think he will present interesting and thoughtful ideas and provide Americans with a viable alternative to Mrs. Cinton and they will treat him with complete fairness and respect.

And if you believe that, let me tell you about my sister-in-law who made enough to buy a Ferrari working on the internet…

Anyway, I don’t deny that Jeb Bush is more conservative than Hillary or Obama. But he is a Bush, and after three Bush terms, we know how they govern, and we know that… philosophically, at their core, they believe that Government Knows Best and, in that very significant way they are of one mind with the Obamas, the Clintons, the Kennedies, and all the other statists.

Really, CNN? Really?

CNN found a rather… um… unique angle in its coverage of the terrorist attacks on a Jerusalem synagogue yesterday.

The Utter Selfishness and Irresponsibility of Kaci Hickox

A paradigm of the Obama-voting, unmarried female voter… Kaci Hickox resents that she is subject to quarantine because of her recent contact with persons infected with Ebola … and asserts that the common sense measures taken to protect the public from a deadly infectious disease are a violation of her human rights. And of course, she is threatening lawsuits right and left. And she’s become a darling of the MFM.

She asserts she feels fine. And she may well turn out to be uninfected. But what kind of example is this “health care professional” setting for others who may become infected? That they should just go about their lives normally… because it’s their “human right.”
