Quote of the Week

From an Althouse commenter:
President Kid Rock will be fun to introduce to the Europeans.

Anti-Leftism = Abolitionism

Click on image to visit source.

The contrary of the Democrat Narrative is abolition. Abolition is the direct cause of Civil War, as the Democrats refused to give up slavery as the abolitionist Republicans demanded. The slavery was extended by Democrats after the Civil War as they instituted Jim Crow laws to suppress the blacks. Abolition, again by the Republicans, created the 1964 Civil Rights Act which outlawed Jim Crow and other Democrat atrocities against the blacks. The Democrats, under Lyndon Baines Johnson, created the welfare plantations which captured entire communities of blacks in dependency upon the federal government and the Democrats in particular.

Under the LBJ Democrat plantation model, the oppressive Left was enabled to scream "racism" if the abolitionists attempted to place welfare into the oppressive context it deserves, and to free blacks from their dependency. Thus blacks were induced to falsely attribute racial suppression to the abolitionists, due to the lies of their actual oppressor class, the Left. Blacks who are unable to see this are still functionally the slaves of the oppressive Democrat Leftists who have not changed even a whit since their original party incorporation specifically intended to enslave blacks.

Some blacks have escape the Leftist Democrat enslavement. Many of these still believe that the oppressors are the Republican abolitionists, and others are able to see the truth regarding the Democrat enslavement which still exists after nearly 200 years of blatant oppression.

This Leftist and Democrat lie is supported by the invective which is the entire output of Democrats. The Marxist class war has supplanted democratic and federalist theory with Victimhood and Oppression Classes, which the Leftocrats flail constantly, in order to preserve the cultural schism which Marxism creates and exploits. Without that schism which they create and nurture, the culture would solidify and the leftocrats would have no policies at all.
On Intimidation and Character Assassination

At some point in the history of this country, the gatekeepers in media and entertainment presumed that they were the true rulers of this country, that they determined what people believed, what they thought, and what they were allowed to say. They presumed to move Presidents and Congressmen merely by leveraging character assassination and establishing the framework of their accepted Overton Window. They could swing whole elections.

The Internet has deprived them of the exclusivity of this framing. People may (and frequently do) bypass them for news and information. But they still retain the power of character assassination, even if a few, like Donald Trump, have remained stubbornly immune to it. They have the funding, the airtime, the audience, and allies among gatekeepers and HR departments around the world.

It is that power which must be broken if we are to step out into the light again. It is not enough that we cast them as fake news, though this must be done also. They cannot be permitted to assassinate characters on a whim.

And if we cannot break them of this power, then we must deploy a similar power ourselves. How much economic damage can we force on them if they do this? How many people can we get fired? How many businesses can we destroy?

The New Leftist Word For Traitor: "HERO" (Updated)


If you know anything at all about John McCain and his stay with the North Vietnamese, you are aware that he was a massive traitor, betraying all his knowledge about military positions and strategy; also he was the equivalent of Tokyo Rose, being the inter-prison-camp loudspeaker announcer for demoralizing the American POWs in all the prison camps. You are also aware that he scuttled certain attempts to find MIAs.

John McCain has always been a traitorous scumbag.

It is no wonder that the Left iconizes McCain. Even Trump was bullied into claiming - after first denouncing McCain - that McCain was a hero.

He was not.

Now he has betrayed the Republican Party with insane attacks on Trump, while traveling the world. Maybe he has always had a brain tumor. There's not much else to explain his "issues".

UPDATE:
This Prof has rattle the chains of the Left with this FB post:

I find myself annoyed at the groundswell of good wishes for John McCain after his diagnosis of glioblastoma and have been thinking through why. A great line from Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem comes to mind regarding the valuing of elite lives over ordinary lives:
"There are more than a few people, especially among the cultural elite, who still publicly regret the fact that Germany sent Einstein packing, without realizing that it was a much greater crime to kill little Hans Cohn from around the corner, even though he was no genius."

This analogy should not be interpreted too strictly. McCain is certainly no Einstein and I don't mean just on brains. Einstein had very appealing humanist instincts, as a socialist, antiwar, anti-imperialist, and anti-statist Zionist. McCain is a war criminal and, more to the point. someone who as a politician has championed horrifying actions and been lousy on state commitment to public health. So dying or not, he's a risible public figure (I have no idea what he is like on the personal level and don't care).

But ultimately what troubles me is the urge to send such well wishes to an utter stranger as it reinforces the notion that some lives are more important than others. There are lots of people with glioblastoma and who have died from it (including my mother twenty years ago). I would much rather read random good wishes to contemporary little Hans Cohns than to politicians.
Read this for the snits:
Professor ‘annoyed at the groundswell of good wishes for John McCain,’ calls him ‘war criminal’

Capitalism and the Bees

How Capitalism Saved the Bees

A threat to honeybees should certainly raise concerns. They pollinate a wide variety of important food crops—about a third of what we eat—and add about $15 billion in annual value to the economy, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. And beekeepers are still reporting above-average bee deaths. In 2016, U.S. beekeepers lost 44 percent of their colonies over the previous year, the second-highest annual loss reported in the past decade.

But here's what you might not have heard. Despite the increased mortality rates, there has been no downward trend in the total number of honeybee colonies in the United States over the past 10 years. Indeed, there are more honeybee colonies in the country today than when colony collapse disorder began.

Beekeepers have proven incredibly adept at responding to this challenge. Thanks to a robust market for pollination services, they have addressed the increasing mortality rates by rapidly rebuilding their hives, and they have done so with virtually no economic effects passed on to consumers. It's a remarkable story of adaptation and resilience, and the media has almost entirely ignored it.
Why would the MSM publish any story about capitalism which is positive? Well, it just won't. Goes against the Narrative.

Antifa's TransDyke Battalion: Fighting Fascist Feminists

Feminists won't allow transwomen into their vaunted circles, because "transwomen aren't real women". This discrimination has generated a backlash: a transwomen faction of Antifa, dedicated - you guessed it - to bashing feminists. Declaring war on feminists, real war at that, the highly piqued transwomen now refer to themselves as TransDykes and join up with Antifa to bash... well whoever, but certainly feminists.

Now, I had presumed that Antifa was already Dyke-laden with cis-Dykes. It is best, I suppose, to keep the black tarps covering all of them so that the transDykes and cis-Dykes don't identify and bloody each other. It still could happen, black-on-black. If so, I hope there is video.

BTW, here's a definition of TERF:
TERF. Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist: a radical feminist who believes transsexual and transgender people do not have the right to consider themselves female.
From GenderTrender:
TransDykes: The Anti-Lesbian Antifa

What is a “TransDyke”?

TransDykes are an offshoot of Antifa whose focus is on suppressing the speech of women, mainly lesbians. They participate in regular Antifa flashmobs, sometimes in pastel uniform (“Pastel Bloc”) but also target Women’s Rights events, and Lesbian spaces.

TransDykes are heterosexual men who identify as transwomen. They consider Lesbianism a form of fascism because female homosexuality excludes male-bodied persons. But any woman who publicly acknowledges the existence of biologically female human beings is their enemy, especially Feminists, who want to abolish, not celebrate, the sex stereotypes that transwomen identify with.

Democrats Woo The Deplorables, While Republicans Fiddle

Trying to steal Trump's success with the Othered Class, the Donks change their tune from Hate the Deplorables to Victimhood of the Flyovers:
Dems want to rebrand as the economic party

An opening theme/frame: "excessive corporate power and its impacts."
Always Marxist, always starting with identifying and targeting an Oppressor Class to Hate.
The agenda's big idea: "Too many families in America today feel that the rules of the economy are rigged against them. Special interests have a strangle-hold on Washington — from the super-rich spending unlimited amounts of secret money to influence our elections, to the huge loopholes in our tax code that help corporations avoid paying taxes."

"If the government goes back to putting working families first, ahead of special interests, we can achieve a better deal for the American people that will raise their pay, lower their expenses, and prepare them for the future."
They discovered this late, maybe too late. The deplorables know bait when they see it. And the HATE THE OPPRESSOR meme is wearing thin with those whose values have been under the Leftist bus and declared the Oppressor Class by the hate-the-whites/males/cis-straights who run the Donk Party.

The anti-everything antics of the Donks since the election of their Destructor has made it clear that there is neither honesty nor honor amongst the Left. Whether that will be remembered by the ignoranti next election cycle remains unclear; meanwhile, the Republicans continue to prove that they can't even repeal the hated ObamaCare, given control of both houses and the presidency. The Republican incompetence might well lead to the next installation of Marxists into Congress.

Two Wrongs Make Two (more) Wrongs For Bill Nye

Bill Nye: Older people need to 'die' out before climate science can advance
First Problem for Bill Nye: It's not "old people" who reject the rush to accept AGW, it's the people who know what science entails, what is a contingent fact, vs. what is bogus huckstering.

Second Problem for Bill Nye: We know that what he's really talking about is not the "science", which is funded to the gills; it's the political acceptance of the purported responsibility to transfer $Trillions from developed countries to those who have been "developing countries" for many generations but haven't seemed to actually "develop". Follow the money, follow the Leftist glory beam that shines on such people. If we had a dispassionate journalism caste, Nye wouldn't even get a "man on the street" blip, much less national sensational coverage.

Ulrich Baer Justifies Stifling Absolutely Free Speech

From the NYT "The Stone", back in April:
What ‘Snowflakes’ Get Right About Free Speech
Ulrich Baer

What is under severe attack, in the name of an absolute notion of free speech, are the rights, both legal and cultural, of minorities to participate in public discourse. The snowflakes sensed, a good year before the election of President Trump, that insults and direct threats could once again become sanctioned by the most powerful office in the land. They grasped that racial and sexual equality is not so deep in the DNA of the American public that even some of its legal safeguards could not be undone.
The issues to which the students are so sensitive might be benign when they occur within the ivory tower. Coming from the campaign trail and now the White House, the threats are not meant to merely offend. Like President Trump’s attacks on the liberal media as the “enemies of the American people,” his insults are meant to discredit and delegitimize whole groups as less worthy of participation in the public exchange of ideas.

As a college professor and university administrator with over two decades of direct experience of campus politics, I am not overly worried that even the shrillest heckler’s vetoes will end free speech in America. As a scholar of literature, history and politics, I am especially attuned to the next generation’s demands to revise existing definitions of free speech to accommodate previously delegitimized experiences. Freedom of expression is not an unchanging absolute. When its proponents forget that it requires the vigilant and continuing examination of its parameters, and instead invoke a pure model of free speech that has never existed, the dangers to our democracy are clear and present.
We should thank the student protestors, the activists in Black Lives Matter and other “overly sensitive” souls for keeping watch over the soul of our republic.

Free Speech might well include speech that attacks the characteristics of minorities which are self-disabling and counterproductive to their own best interests. That is the type of speech which Baer wants to kill. Minorities are necessary to the egos of the Messianic savior class of the Left. It the minorities found that they could excel without the oppressive "help" of the Progressives, the Left would have no case against the Oppressor Class. That would be terminal to the Leftist elitist Messianic Class.

What Baer leaves out, is the elephant in the room: who gets to decide? Baer obviously believes that the students and their Leftist agitators get to decide, since that is what has happened, and who he thanks for their "vigilance". So, Leftist mob rule is the arbiter of who is morally qualified to speak to people.

Let’s think about the results of Leftist mob moral adjudication of Free Speech.

First, the student mobs and antifa are the functional and moral equivalent of the Robespierrean “Reign of Terror” in the French Revolution, where justice is an opinion, not a principle.

Second, they are violent and blood thirsty in the manner of the Democrat Ku Kux Klan and the Leftist "Society for Public Safety" under Robespierre and the Jacobins.

Third, their putative “morals” are purely class-oriented in the fashion of Marxism. Their tactics are those of Leftist Satan worshipper, Saul Alinsky, who declared all tactics to be equally moral in pursuit of a “moral” objective. Thus terror, mayhem, murder – all in the pursuit of some objective declared “moral” – are all moral tactics, having been sanctified by the morality of their objective.

Fourth, their wards for protection - minorities supposedly without a voice - are viciously at war with each other. Muslims kill Gays, oppress and abuse women, allow pedophilia (in the image of their pedophilic Prophet), refuse to participate as part of the Left’s multi-culti assimilation, except to stab, shoot, run over and throw acid on, their benefactors. Feminists (anathema to Muslims) oppress both black feminists and transwomen feminists. Blacks are their own worst enemies, killing their own class as well as other classes far beyond their demographic ratio. This all is the result of the Leftist insistence upon valuing people according to their class rather than the content of their character.

Fifth, all internal cross-Victimhood-Class aggressions and name-calling are excused. The minorities have the right to speak, and they cannot be racist, cannot be sexist, cannot be misogynist, cannot be homophobic, no matter what vile epithets, denigrations, identity marginalization and silencing of sister minorities erupts during their internecine wars.

Sixth, in Left world there is no internal contradiction which is not and cannot be embraced at a moment’s notice. Hate Comey/Love Comey; Love Russia/Hate Russia; Love Gays/Feed them to the Muslims; women's rights only for feminists. It’s all part of the “rational” and “moral” basis upon which Progressivism is built.

Seventh, under "absolute" freedom of speech, the minorities have the identical rights to speech as anyone else. So Baer's point is not to elevate the Rights of the minorities. The point is to eradicate the Rights of those who Baer and ilk wish to silence. The Left cannot stand up to any attack from the point of view of freedom, which is classless and universal. They cannot succeed in a free society, they must stamp out voices which endanger their "Progress".

So it is with Baer. It is not moral, according to Baer, to allow “absolute” free speech (which might well demonstrate the immorality of the totalitarian lock down on thought and speech), but it is moral to decide who can speak, vs. who cannot speak. And Baer chooses himself to be The One Who Decides. When he silences a class of people (morally, under his own morality of course) it is done for class justice… according to himself. So he is the “Justice Adjudicator”, "The One Who Decides".

So it becomes absolute, anyway: It is absolutely determined by The One Who Decides.

Given that, then what is the punishment for speaking if one hasn’t the permission of The One Who Decides? Well it is obvious: that would be decided by The One Who Decides.

And it is also obvious that this system is now very popular with Fat Boy Kim “The One Who Decides” Jong Un in North Korea. His punishment includes a few rounds to the torso from an anti-aircraft battery.

Eliminationism also was popular with Robespierre, who was The One Who Decided(1) who kept their heads attached and who did not. Perhaps Baer sees himself as the new Robespierre; he can’t be the new Kim, since Kim still has that title wrapped up. Baer should beware, though, because Robespierre was guillotined within a year by the rebels generated in the chaos he had unleashed himself. Intolerance seems to breed intolerance. Relativity in freedoms turns fatal and Robespierre is poster boy for that.

Liz Wheeler Lists ALL the Evidence Against Donald Trump

Where There is no Logic, There is no Contradiction

Group that protested NRA over 'violent' rhetoric embraces convicted cop killer

The group behind last week's protest against the National Rifle Association over rhetoric it claimed was a "direct endorsement of violence" wished a convicted cop killer and fugitive a happy birthday on Monday.

"Happy birthday to the revolutionary #AssataShakur!" the verified Twitter account for the Women's March tweeted. "Today's #SignOfResistance, in Assata's honor, is by @Meloniousfunk."

The tweet included a painting of Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard, with the slogan "A woman's place is in the struggle."

The Women's March praise for Chesimard came less than a week after the group organized a protest of the National Rifle Association (NRA) in large part due to a video the gun organization produced. The video, which criticized resistance to the Trump administration and protests that have repeatedly turned violent across the country, was specifically cited as a key motivator for the protest, and the Women's March demanded the NRA take it down. "Recent actions by the NRA demonstrate not only a complete disregard for the lives of black and brown people in America—your fellow citizens—but appear to be a direct endorsement of violence against these citizens exercising their constitutional right to protest," a letter from Tamika D. Mallory, co-president of the Women's March, to the NRA read. "You are calling for our grassroots, nonviolent resistance movement to be met with violence."

While critics of the video have taken issue with its metaphorical call to "fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth," the video does not include any call to actual violence.

Chesimard was the first woman to be added to the FBI's Most Wanted list and was last spotted in Cuba after escaping prison in 1979. As a member of the Black Liberation Army, Chesimard is believed to have committed a number of felonies including bank robbery. She was convicted of first-degree murder in connection with a May 2, 1973, shootout between her group and New Jersey State Police.

The Core Problem

The core problem is not even the New World Order, although all the politicians and apparatchiks who are pouring the fire ants over our heads are disciples or paid servants of the NWO. But we, the electorate of the nations west of the Iron Curtain, keep voting in these same loathsome snoids, over and over again.

And that is the core problem.

It’s clear that the mass media are major prop that keeps the Potemkin village of the Modern Multicultural West upright.

It’s also clear that mass affluence, powered by fiat money, is responsible for keeping the mobile vulgus quiescent most of the time.

But are these enough to explain the apocalyptic cul de sac in which we find ourselves? Or are there additional explanations?
I demur. Without the Gramscian, Nietzschean, Atheist/messianic, narcissistic Left, and the resulting circle of infiltration, indoctrination and maleducation, the culminating ignorant generations could not have resolved to the circle of indoctrinate/vote/indoctrinate/vote. The conquest of minds could not have occurred.

Freedom is not the normal state of human society; totalitarianism is. Freedom must be wrenched away from the Leftist dictators, over and over and over.

PUSHBACK, Delayed but Probably Permanently Intense.

They did not expect the Deplorables to take offense; now the Deplorables are ON Offense.
BACKLASH: RIGHT WING TWITTER BEGINS DIGGING FOR DIRT ON CNN EMPLOYEES. “This is not the world I want to live in,” one of Ace of Spades’ co-bloggers writes, and I concur. “When I first saw that they’d embarrassed this guy, I laughed. I thought he was an on-air personality and at least a minor political player. After I realized he was just an editor, I cringed a little. I can’t bring myself to endorse it, but neither can I condemn it.
This is what they’ve done to time and time again us and they won’t stop.
What alternative is there?… This is only the beginning of an ever-growing pushback, one that’s only going to get nastier and more ugly. And
everything that happens is on them. This is the rotten, worm infested harvest they have sown and they’re going to be choking on it for some time to come.
As Ace himself warned the media last November, a week after Trump won, this backlash was coming. “You dominate this culture. You made the rules. You now get to live in the savage world you made brick-by-brick, media…The media loves to ride the tiger of Mob Hatred when that tiger is devouring a plebeian. Well, sometimes the tiger bucks, old chaps.

Hegel and the SJW

SJWs are NEVER content
Until all cis-normals are purged from the universe, SJWs will continue to converge every entity they touch. The antithesis must be achieved; no synthesis is satisfactory. They march toward appropriation of all of culture, which they will destroy by re-assembling it into permanent Marxist/communist three class war. And the weak SJW will be purged along with the Oppressor Class just as has always happened in class war countries around the world.

Carl Bernstein: 'Cold civil war' gripping US as media embrace 'different truths'
No. Nonono. There are not any parallel "truths" which lead to contradictory conclusions. The Left doesn't even believe that there are ANY truths. Sorry Carl.

And again:
He stressed the importance of anonymous sources and said "quote 'leaks' which really are not leaks" are instead "mostly reporters trying very hard to get truthful information and put some context to this story."
That's a sorry excuse for making untestable claims which are purveyed as FACT. These sorts of leaks are a) illegal; b) not testable; c) loose innuendo used by reporters who have no actual facts to report. And a leak is not context. If it is not testable fact, then it is not testable context. Carl, that's bullshit.

Again:
Bernstein said one of the big difference between Watergate and now is "that we are in the midst of a cold civil war in this country."

He expanded on that idea, saying that there is a political and cultural civil war and all of our reporting is taking place in the context of that cold civil war. And nothing quite like that existed at the time of Watergate."
Carl, you were there, right?? There was insurrection on the campuses, riots at DNC conventions, and in all major cities, Bill Ayers bombings, Weathermen bombings, kidnappings, burnings, shooting of students by National Guardsmen, black riots in the ghettos... where the hell were you?

I stopped reading at that point.

Snopes on Trump Derangement

I am not in general a fan of Snopes. But in this analysis they have sorted through the morass in a quite decent fashion. Their Leftism leaks through in minor ways, but only very occasionally and without impact on the significant logical value of this article. I was surprised and pleased to find this analysis.
The Lies of Donald Trump’s Critics, and How They Shape His Many Personas
An in-depth analysis of the false allegations and misleading claims made against the 45th President since his inauguration.


There are many articles that exist detailing lies and misleading claims made by the Trump administration. This article is intended as a neutral, reliable analysis of the lies, false allegations and misleading claims made about and against Donald Trump since his inauguration in January 2017. We’ve attempted to strip away the hyperbole, name-calling and generalizations, and examine the patterns and trends at work: what characterizes these lies and exaggerations, the effect they have, what might explain them.

[...]

Some of these claims are downright fake, entirely fabricated by unreliable or dubious web sites and presented as satire, or otherwise blatantly false. But the rest — some of which have gained significant traction and credibility from otherwise serious people and organizations — provide a fascinating insight into the tactics and preoccupations of the broad anti-Trump movement known as “the Resistance,” whether they were created by critics of the President or merely shared by them.

Generally speaking, we discovered that they are characterized and driven by four types of errors of thought:
Alarmism

A lack of historical context or awareness

Cherry-picking of evidence (especially visual evidence)

A failure to adhere to Occam’s Razor — the common-sense understanding that the simplest explanation for an event or behavior is the most likely.
Infused throughout almost all these claims, behind their successful dissemination, is confirmation bias: the fuel that drives the spread of all propaganda and false or misleading claims among otherwise sensible and skeptical people.

[...]

Here are some examples of terminology used in the article:
These lies and misrepresentations are also often based on snapshots — visual evidence presented without proper context;

even the cherry-picked evidence chosen to make the point undermines it;

except that he didn’t;

lack of historical context and cherry-picked evidence also played a role in another particularly egregious episode, in which Occupy Democrats placed a photograph of Pope Francis frowning beside Trump, next to one of the Pontiff grinning beside Barack Obama;

these claims have primarily come in the form of blatantly fabricated posts and stories from disreputable sources;

absolutist way the motion was misrepresented in the article’s headline;

evidence...actually supported the opposite;

rushed and alarmist conclusions, a lack of context, and a pre-existing caricature of Trump as an incipient dictator have played a role in false claims made against him;

not true;

false claims and fake stories;

false attributions; falsehoods;

major strand of falsehood
There are many more conclusions like these; read the whole thing THERE.
