Hillary Clinton’s Radical, Extremist Ideology

You have heard by now that, at a Democrat rally in Massachusetts, the woman Democrats wish to anoint as president in 2017 demonstrated her understanding of economics by saying this:

Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs.”

So, basically, any of you who have jobs in the private sector are technically unemployed according to the Democrats’ most favoritest politician. (The one who “misplaced” $6 Billion taxpayer dollars while running the Department of State, Oops.)

What you may not have heard is that statement is just one link in a rather long chain of HRC expressing her contempt for private enterprise and the free market, and supporting socialist collectivism. (Hat Tip: Oregon Muse)

1) “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.” – Hillary Clinton 6/29/2004
2) “It’s time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, and for the few… And to replace it with shared responsibility, for shared prosperity.”- Hillary Clinton 5/29/2007
3) “(We)…..can’t just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.” – Hillary Clinton 6/4/2007
4) “We have to build a political consensus and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own … in order to create this common ground.” – Hillary Clinton 6/4/2007
5) “I certainly think the free-market has failed.” – Hillary Clinton 6/4/2007

In the age of Obama and Elizabeth Warren (the hard-left Democrat Senator who supports a $22-an-hour minimum wage and lied about being an American Indian so she could become an Affirmative Action hire at Harvard), the Democrat Party is gradually coming out of the closet as full-bore socialists. The State may not technically own all businesses, but given the heavy regulation and blatant targeting of companies like Gibson Guitars and regulatory attacks like Operation Choke Point against legal gun dealers … it’s become an increasingly semantic distinction. Call it ‘Regulatory Socialism.’

SWATCops Terrorize Innocent Gay Man in No-Knock Raid

This kind of thing has to stop.

Bobby Griffin Jr. was wanted on murder charges. His next-door neighbor on Peck Street, Joseph Adams, wasn’t. But that didn’t stop the SWAT team from knocking down his door, setting his home on fire, roughing him up, keeping him tied up in his underwear for nearly three hours, and treating the New Haven man, who is gay, to a nance show as officers taunted him with flamboyantly effeminate mannerisms. If the events detailed in Mr. Adams’s recently filed lawsuit are even remotely accurate, the episode was a moral violation and, arguably, a crime.

And after terrorizing this man and setting his house on fires, the cops blatantly denied the incident had ever happened.

The image that really hooks me is that of Joseph Adams schlepping up to the New Haven police department to endure some bureaucracy and to fill out some paperwork — because no matter how badly government screws up, fixing what’s gone wrong is always your problem. I can picture his situation precisely — every police department, driver’s-license office, tax bureau, and city licensing agency exhibits the same distinctive blind of slowly simmering hostility, smugness, contempt, and complete immunity from accountability. We are ruled by criminals, and their alibi is: “There’s no record of that in the system.” That, or: “The computer won’t let me do that.”

Because that’s how it is living in a totalitarian progressive state.

CNN Anchor: “You Know What’s Funny? When a Woman Gets Beaten Up…”

Posted by V the K at 9:52 am - October 24, 2014.
Filed under: Media Bias,Sarah Palin

“… if the woman’s last name is ‘Palin.’

When video of Ray Rice punching and then dragging his fiancé around on the floor was released, CNN’s Carol Costello justifiably called it “disturbing” and “insane.” But when Costello played the audio of a different woman recounting a similar horrifying experience of being assaulted and dragged around by a man, she told her audience: “Sit back and enjoy.”

The difference? The woman in question happened to be the daughter of favorite liberal hate object and former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

And

On Wednesday, Costello even teased the audio on her twitter feed at 9:45am: “This is quite possibly the best minute and half of audio we’ve come across in a long long time.” #PalinBrawl.

And after several rounds of criticism, Costello finally offered a weak pseudo-apology in the subjunctive tense, “I would like to apologize,” she said.

A rational person might wonder, why is the left wing still so obsessed with Sarah Palin so many years later? Why does it even matter.

It matters, because the left wants to make an example of Sarah Palin as a warning to any other conservative Republican woman who might seek high office in the future. It’s a warning, “If you don’t mind your place, missy, we will destroy you and attack your family for years to come.”

That’s why they keep doing it.

Preparing for the $15-an-hour BurgerOrderTaker

Because no one whose primary job skill is asking “Would you like a hot apple pie for one dollar more?” is worth $15-an-hour. (Especially not the ones at the BK down the street from my office who… hand to Ra… took ten minutes to get me my Whopper, Jr. when there was like me and two other people in their restaurant.)

Various outlets are reporting that McDonald’s is currently testing automated cashiers in the hopes that they will soon roll out all over the country. The machines are touch screen and will enable customer to order and pay for their food without having to wait in line and interact with a live cashier.

Similar machines are already being used in Europe

Which will make it a little harder for all of the cheap foreign laborers Obama wants to import to find work.

On the subject of the minimum wage, useless DIABLO Chris Christie… actually said something pretty smart about that.

“I’m tired of hearing about the minimum wage,” Christie said during a speech at the Chamber of Commerce. “I really am. I don’t think there’s a mother or a father sitting around the kitchen table tonight in America saying, ‘You know, honey, if our son or daughter could just make a higher minimum wage, my God, all of our dreams would be realized.’ ”

“Is that what parents aspire to for our children?” the possible 2016 presidential candidate asked. “They aspire to a greater, growing America, where their children have the ability to make much more money and have much great success than they have, and that’s not about a higher minimum wage.”

And he must have drawn some blood with that remark, because it seems to have ticked off the right people.

A civilization in decline

It seems as though more and more news items lately have a common element: After decades of steadily attacking, hollowing out or abandoning its own culture, the Western world is showing major signs of social, political and moral decay.

Personally, I am no traditionalist. I think all traditions should be examined in the light of logic and justice – and revised or replaced, where they’re found lacking. This is one reason why I have never called myself a conservative (and have tried not to become GP’s “main blogger”).

But my intention, as a non-traditionalist, is to ‘keep things real’ and build on what’s best in the Western tradition: which is what Jonah Goldberg has called the Lockean Revolution, the idea that the individual owns herself – and is not owned by the Massa, feudal Lord, Village, Community, Tribe, Race, Party, State or Ummah. The leftists who have attacked the West from within, for decades now, have been after the exact opposite idea.

A civilization/culture doesn’t survive unless its young women and men will mostly (regardless of particular individuals’ sexual orientation or practices) do the following together: (a) get along; (b) find a genuine sense of purpose and meaning in that culture/civilization; and therefore (c) actually create and raise new generations for it. We are seeing more and more signs that the West is decrepit, on all three counts.

I could talk about the West’s declining birthrates, or its anti-child and self-terminating “environmentalism”, or its ever-growing political insanity. But, just to restrict it to current events, GayPatriot’s main page presently notices such news items as:

And we can add more items:

I recommend that last link, Lee Smith’s opinion piece titled “Why the Teenage Girls of Europe are Joining ISIS”, for your attention. When a given civilization can no longer persuade its own teenage girls to sign on with it: it’s cooked.

Hat Tip: The Blaze

The Deranged, Delusional Paranoia of the Left

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

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

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

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

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

The BF Evolves

Posted by V the K at 9:21 am - October 23, 2014.
Filed under: Ideas & Trends

So, last night, the BF says to me, “I don’t think I’m a liberal any more.”

What brought this on? Well, since graduating from college, he has been working in university administration, and has grown increasingly contemptuous of the PC-bullsheet he has to put up with on a daily basis. Because in the university environment, “micro-aggressions” “Safe Space” and disputes over whether a transgendered she-man can be a diversity coordinator are super-serious issues. I think the last straw was when a co-worker called him a “racist” for being skeptical of the leftist dogma of “White privilege.”

Then, over dinner with his roommate and her boyfriend, the topic of Trayvon Martin came up. And the BF said, “I know it’s wrong, but I never got outraged over it the way everybody else did. It’s sad for his family that he died, but how was his death more newsworthy than anyone else who gets shot?” The roommate’s boyfriend would have none of it, and blammered something about young black men not being safe and white people being able to shoot black people and get away with it. (Kind of funny that a straight white guy was the most liberal person in the room, isn’t it? {Granted, he’s a grad student majoring in Philosophy.})

The dawning of awareness comes when a thinking man realizes that a lot of the things the left believes as Dogma are bullsheet; aided by ILC’s observation that a lot of leftists are straight up d-bags.

Liberalism Creates Another Metaphor for Itself

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

Posted by Jeff (ILoveCapitalism) at 6:52 pm - October 22, 2014.
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…

So, are lefties jerks? Or just narrow-minded?

HotAir pointed out yesterday that “Consistent liberals” are most likely to block others on social media for disagreeing with them politically.

Hence, my question. I’m honestly divided. In this complicated world, we’ve all known some lefties who are plain jerks, while some other lefties may be fairly nice people – apart from their never wanting to hear or know of any information that could make them question their prejudices.

I ran into the second kind of person just the other night, at my dad’s. “Cynthia” is a highly-educated neighbor in his retirement community, very nice in terms of watching out for my dad’s disabled girlfriend, and with a pleasant demeanor. So far, “not a jerk.”

But narrow-minded. As one example, she’ll dismiss (as in, will not hear) any information of Sarah Palin being anything other than a total dummy. Which is funny because the prominent Obama supporter and former “green jobs czar”, Van Jones, has now admitted in essence that the Left lied to people about Palin in the 2008 campaign:

“Sarah Palin .. people forget. She had the Democratic party shaking in our boots in 2008. She came out, she gave that speech at the convention. That was, hands down, one of the best convention speeches – not by a woman, by anybody in 2008. People were running for the hills…

Now it can be told! Now it can be told! We were scared!”

It must help the Democrats that their most officially ‘educated’ supporters are among their most dogmatically-gullible supporters. The Democrats can lie to such people and they won’t even care. For another example, we have President Obama’s recent admission that the Democrat candidates who are staying distant from him this year are engaged in a lie:

Well look, here’s the bottom line. We’ve got a tough map. A lot of the states are contested this time are states that I didn’t win. And so some of the candidates there – it is difficult for them to have me in the state…

The bottom line is though, these are all folks who vote with me. They have supported my agenda in Congress…These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me, and you know, I tell them, I said, ‘you know what? You do what you need to do to win.’

Dogmatically-gullible people: They enable the Democrats to get away with it. Some of them are jerks, some of them are nice – but narrow-minded.

Progressive Left Orders Churches to Pay for Abortions

Posted by V the K at 12:26 pm - October 22, 2014.
Filed under: War on Christians

The Progressive left is really driving hard on the Subjugation of Church to State this month.

  1. Houston’s Lesbian Mayor subpoenas ministers to turn over their sermons, speeches, and other communications so her lawyers can examine them for criticism of her policies.
  2. City of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho threatens Christian ministers with jail and fines if they refuse to perform gay weddings.
  3. State of California orders churches to pay for abortions.

California’s Department of Managed Health Care has ordered all insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortion. Not Plan B. Not contraceptives. Elective surgical dismemberment abortion.

At the insistence of the American Civil Liberties Union, the DMHC concluded that a 40-year-old state law requiring health plans to cover “basic health services” had been misinterpreted all these decades. Every plan in the state was immediately ordered, effective August 22, to cover elective abortion. California had not even applied this test to its own state employee health plans (which covered only “medically necessary” abortions). But this novel reading was nevertheless quietly imposed on every plan in the state by fiat.

So much for that “Freedom of Religion” thing those white male slaveowners wrote on that silly document “over a hundred years ago.”

Even the ACLU Thinks Annise Parker Went Too Far

Posted by V the K at 9:15 pm - October 21, 2014.
Filed under: Gays & religion

Some of our commenters were defending Houston mayor Annise Parker’s subpoena for the sermons, speeches, and private communications of Houston area pastors. As it turns out, it wasn’t just “right wingnuts” who were appalled by this abuse of power. Even the far left ACLU is saying, “Not cool, bro.”

The ACLU said in a statement, “While a lot of things are fair game in a lawsuit, government must use special care when intruding into matters of faith. The government should never engage in fishing expeditions into the inner workings of a church, and any request for information must be carefully tailored to seek only what is relevant to the dispute.”

Following blowback, Parker announced the City of Houston would clarify the subpoenas which were, “too broad.” “We are glad that Mayor Parker has acknowledged that subpoenas issued in ongoing litigation were too broad and that there is no need to intrude on matters of faith to have equal rights in Houston. There was no need to include sermons in the subpoena in the first place,” said the Texas Chapter of the ACLU.

Gay Man Raises Money to Pay Fine of Christian Bakers

Posted by V the K at 3:42 pm - October 21, 2014.
Filed under: Gay Marriage,Gays & religion

After the gay fascist left used the power of the state to destroy a Christian Bakery for the unforgivable offense of hurting a lesbian couple’s feelings, another gay person is trying to set things right, or at least, less wrong.

Matt Stolhandske, a board member of Evangelicals for Marriage Equality, a coalition of Christians who support same-sex marriage, recently launched an online campaign to raise money for the Klein family, despite his opposition to their views.

Stolhandske said he’s planning to send whatever money he raises in a crowdfunding campaign to the bakers in an effort to keep them from going bankrupt and to show them good faith and love.

Nice gesture, but, his motivations seem to be a bit mixed. Instead of a gesture of charity, he seems to be treating it as an opportunity to lecture the bakers on how wrong they are.

He said he’s also hoping his gesture will encourage others like the Klein family to “stop using the name of Jesus to explain to the LGBT community why we don’t deserve access to the civil rights afforded to heterosexuals through the legal institution of marriage.”

“I can’t understand why Klein or any other Christians twist the words of Jesus Christ to justify this behavior. To me, it’s a deeply harmful and embarrassing bastardization of our faith.”

Like Jesus said (not) to Mary Magdalene, “I’m gonna pay to bail you out to prove how awesome I am, but you’re still a filthy whore.”

Hat Tip: The Real GayPatriot (who may not entirely agree with my take).

Gay Marriage and the Secular Inquisition

From the Federalist, gay marriage as a tool for subjugation of the individual to the state.

The theory behind gay marriage, in short, was the theory behind the entire secular left: society and the state are the all-powerful forces on which the life of the individual depends, and the most important political task—indeed, the most important task in life—is getting this irresistible power on your side. Once you gain social and political power, you hold on to it by making your preferred views mandatory, a catechism everyone must affirm, while suppressing all heretical views. In this case, to gain social acceptance of homosexuality, you make the affirmation of gay marriages mandatory while officially suppressing any dissenting religious views.

Exactly so. There is no reason to force ordained ministers to perform gay weddings, no reason to force bakers to provide cakes for gay weddings, no reason to force florists and photographers to participate in gay weddings… except to enforce the idea that individual must bow to whoever wields the power of the state.

Why People Vote Democrat: Emotion and Greed

Posted by V the K at 8:33 am - October 21, 2014.
Filed under: Liberal Integrity

Bill O’Reilly is an obnoxious blowhard, but every once in a while, he gets something right.

Bill O’Reilly found it hard to believe that despite so much public opposition to the direction the country’s going in, there are still people who support the Democrats. But he believes he knows the reason why: “emotion.”

O’Reilly explained, “Democrats have been very successful in convincing some voters that the Republican Party favors the rich and is anti-woman.”

And for those who are too smart or too informed to buy the Democrats’ bullsheet rhetoric about Republican “hatred” of women, gays, immigrants, and minorities… the Democrats provide another rationale: Straight up greed.

“If you’re voting for the country, then you would be less likely to support the Democrats. But if you’re voting just for yourself and what you can get from the government, the option the Democrats provide, continued entitlements, is attractive.”

Or, as I put it, “We will take money away from people you don’t like and spend it on you.”

And everyone from crony billionaires like Tom Steyer and George Kaiser  down to the Obamaphone lady want a piece of that.

Monica Lewinsky — the woman true blue Democrats believe is the only woman Bill ever cheated on Hillary with — has returned from wherever Democrats have been hiding her for the last 16 years, and is sharing her wisdom with the world.

In 1998, as you can imagine, there was a media frenzy. Even though it was pre-Google, (that’s right, pre-Google). The World Wide Web (as we called it back then) was already a big part of life.

Overnight, I went from being a completely private figure to a publicly humiliated one. I was Patient Zero.

The first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet. There was no Facebook, Twitter or Instagram back then. But there were gossip, news and entertainment websites replete with comment sections and emails could be forwarded.

That’s right, it’s all the fault of the internet, Monica. And there is absolutely no one else to blame. Nope, no one at all. Absolutely no one who made any bad decisions that could have resulted in your … ahem… “reputation”… being destroyed.

Texas Democrat Pitches to the LIV’s

Pro-Abortion Fanatic Democrat (but I repeat myself) Wendy Davis, running for governor of Texas, is throwing everything she can at the Democrats’ low-information voter base and hoping something… anything… sticks. First, she accused her Republican opponent … who is confined to a wheelchair… of being hostile to handicapped people. Now, she is accusing her Republican opponent… who is in an interracial marriage, of being secretly opposed to interracial marriage. It’s like the accusation that Mitt Romney wanted to outlaw tampons, put women in binders, and give his dog a gay haircut; the LIV’s will believe anything and fact-check nothing.

Greg Abbott won’t say whether he’d defend an interracial marriage ban—troubling but not surprising from someone who defends a “poll tax.”

The thing that Wendy Davis is twisting to get to that misinformation biscuit is the evasive answer Greg Abbott gave to a gotcha question during an interview with a San Antonio newspaper.

When I said I wasn’t clear if he was saying he would have defended a ban on interracial marriage, he said, “Actually, the reason why you’re uncertain about it is because I didn’t answer the question. And I can’t go back and answer some hypothetical question like that.”

Asked about the similarities some see between the ban on gay marriage and past prohibitions on interracial marriage, Abbott said, “Well, the Supreme Court has disagreed with that” by holding that sexual orientation isn’t due protected-class status in the way that race is.

Bad answer, Greg. Maybe I can say this because I’m not a politician, but equating gay marriage and interracial marriage is an utterly false equivalence. Interracial marriages do not fundamentally alter the concept of marriage the way gay marriage does. Interracial heterosexual marriage maintain the unique and critical role of marriage in Western culture in binding families together, creating secure environments for the raising of children produced by the marriage, and providing fundamental social stability.

Gay marriage – as some of its advocates admit – is about fundamentally redefining marriage, gaining access to social benefits, and assuaging the egos of gays. Children and family are just props to get to the result. Traditional marriage is about what is best for the whole of society, gay marriage is only about what’s best for Teh Gheys.

(Yeah, I know, I’m on the losing side of the argument, just like the people in Salem who said, “I don’t think those girls are actually witches” were on the losing side of the argument.)

Whatever the affirmative case for gay marriage may be, it has nothing to do with civil rights, and is no way equivalent to interracial marriage.
