Twinks For Trump, from the Fabulist School

Here’s a thing I came across on Memeorandum.

QUEER FASCISTS SHUT DOWN NATION’S FIRST CONSERVATIVE ART SHOW

Ugh, It’s Jim Hoft. But I do like the idea of the art world having never seen a Frederic Remington.

At least 6 Conservative artists were preparing for Saturday’s historic opening. But Brooklyn gallery cancels after online threats and harassment by gay fascist mob.

Artist Lucian Wintrich says the artists are now scrambling to find another gallery for Saturday’s show.

Don’t feel too bad for Lucian. He’s a preppy East Coast ultra-WASP brimming with self confidence, as to be creepy (…cross a gay Ben Shapiro with Harry Potter – then see this. [warning: everything]). But instead of selling you worthless bonds, or country club memberships, as his people have done for generations, Lucian would rather sell you his photographs.

Because he’s apparently the first conservative artist in the world, or something. And his latest, ergo inital, collection for you to ooh and aah over he’s calling “Twinks For Trump.” If that’s a bit much for you to try and picture in your head, imagine this: Photographs of some barely clad hairless young men. Alright fine, but then what about the ‘Trump’ part? Are these men perhaps hanging on the elbows of portly billionaires exiting Park Avenue limousines? Not exactly. Instead, every Lucian hot twink is wearing a Make America Great Again hat too big for his head (…see here [warning: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯]).

Now before you say, “Give me a break. He just pulled those out of his spank pile.” Oh NO. This young artist is better than that – he is the real thing. Not because his photos are more than a curiosity on the aesthetic spectrum, but because – remember? – the Gotham queers. Lucian is a bona fide victim of today’s politics no systematic oppression oh yes that’s it Auschwitz. Tell us, oh young Wintrich Joselewicz:

First they removed my family from positions of power. My relatives in Poland included doctors, lawyers, and leaders of Polish society. Then they removed us from our homes and our contracts. Then they started killing us.

Lucian is related to Holocaust survivors. Which makes a Wintrich photograph, in terms of Conservative Art, a back-lit Kincade.

My grandfather would not believe what is happening in America today. It is fascism and it is all coming from the left. This is how people like Hitler took power. They believe it is alright to silence people. If they keep doing things like this we know what comes next.

Oh yes. We certainly do.

** Please let’s make sure this show happens – Please donate here…

Of course. And in case you’re not all that interested in softcore porn, rest assured there will be other Picas-so-sads at the big show as well.

Contributing Artists:

Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, and Martin Shkreli among participating artists in first ever pro-Trump gallery exhibition.

The opening for #DaddyWillSaveUs will be held at 191 North, 14th Street, Brooklyn, New York October 8th starting at 8pm ET.

See you Saturday night.

The ways in which Trump is actually winning

Don’t look now, but Donald Trump is winning. And he’s winning big. Seriously. Really, this is the truth.

“The polling numbers for Donald Trump are looking pretty bad now, aren’t they at the moment?” reporter Matt Frei asked.

“Not all of them, no. Just the cherry-picked polling numbers that are put out by media outlets that are also bent on his destruction,” Conway responded…

If it looks bad, that’s because there’s a conspiracy among the media to make the election appear that way. In reality Trump is solidly out in front of Hillary Clinton.

Conway explained American voters are under social pressure to appear as though they dislike Trump, but that anonymous online polling affords voters the ability to make choices they might otherwise be ridiculed for publicly embracing.

“It’s because it’s become socially desirable, especially if you’re a college educated person in the United States of America, to say that you’re against Donald Trump,” Conway described.

Once you allow educated people to poll anonymously then Donald *ding ding* wins. How about that? Now the only thing his campaign needs is millions of black glasses and rain coats for the college types. The perv vote is solidly in Donald’s camp.

Doocy asked Zip’s creator Alanna Markey, “OK, so your results are a lot different than the — what we see of the RealClearPolitics average…Alanna, explain why the answer — your results are so much different than the polls we’ve been seeing.”

Why does Zip show Donald Trump winning? Good question.

Markey explained that Zip is not a polling device, but “an anonymous conversation that’s happening nationwide. And we have users that are over 13 across the U.S., exclusively in the U.S. So because it’s conversational we feel like that’s why our results are really so accurate and representative of how people are talking.”

Trump is winning because teenagers love the internet. They also love voting in presidential elections, let’s not forget that. That’s the thing that really matters.

An executive recruiter by trade, it’s his hobby of internet trolling that has turned him into an unlikely conservative star.

In the last year, Mitchell has amassed a following of tens of thousands of Twitter followers, nearly 70,000 and counting, who come for his insistence that, despite what nearly every poll says, Donald Trump will be elected president of the United States.

Bill Mitchell has it all figured out.

…mainstream polling is skewed to disenfranchise the “silent majority” of Americans who favor the Republican nominee’s ideas.

…Mitchell says you don’t have to look further than the size of the crowds each candidate commands. While Trump fills stadiums designed for monster truck rallies and rock concerts, Clinton tends to address audiences of a more modest size. A beltway pundit might call that an enthusiasm gap or simply a matter of staging, but Mitchell calls it a conspiracy.

Mitchell has become a popular man in right-wing circles. He’s cashed in on Twitter and elsewhere by thrilling his Trumpster throng with Zen koans like this:

“Imagine polls don’t exist,” Mitchell tweeted on Aug. 7, “Show me evidence Hillary is winning?”

Well, you can’t argue with that. Literally – you can’t argue with it. If I can’t ask who all you people will vote for, the truth can’t be known. The denial is strong in this one, don’t count him out. Also, it is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary etc. etc.

For our fellow narcissists, there’s this:

Despite surveys that show Trump faltering, many of the Republican candidate’s supporters at a rally Thursday told BuzzFeed News why they think he is actually leading the presidential race.

“I don’t believe in the polls,” said Phillip Morgon, who attended the rally with two friends from Concord, North Carolina. “They ain’t called us.”

It’s the ultimate response. The uber-parry for reality’s thrust. The perfect Trump card. How can the pollsters be right when they never asked me?

Proof of Trump’s dominance can be demonstrated by the size of his rallies, compared with Clinton’s smaller events, which are held in gymnasiums, he said. Gesturing around the room before the rally began, he added, “I’ll bet most of the people here never got called for a poll.”

Nevermind that a good number of Trump supporters have been called, and polled, and said they supported Donald. Until every last one of the faithful is contacted by Gallup, or Zogby or PPP, how could the truth really be known? How could any predictions possibly be accurate?

Douglas Breeding had the same thought.

“Nobody has asked me,” said Breeding. “I don’t see people on social media saying that they support Hillary Clinton. I think mainstream media manipulates polls to benefit her so that people think there is no reason to vote. I believe Trump is up, and he will win in November by a big margin.”

There’s a certain familiar quality to all this. For the man who believes he’s the center of the universe, his supporters won’t give up until every last one of them is consulted. Hang in there, kid.

The Magic of Trump, or the Menace, by which I mean YOU

Trump’s convention speech was remarkable in a number of ways. Mostly it was notable for its seething paranoia, but then that was to be expected. It was the campaign’s strategy to go Judge Dredd. If a few Muslims want to wipe us off the planet then it’s high time for a megalomaniac with a horse whip to step forward and save America. Baa baa, here comes the Law and Order Candidate.

That was only the new stuff, there was plenty of old Trump left to moulder on the stage. There was Crooked Hillary once again. And there was Hey are these police officers great or what? And as always there was I am very smart. Very, smart.

Nothing however was more tired than Trump again affirming he will starch and iron every American wrinkle without mentioning how he will do it. One more time, he was all-encompassing and amounted to nothing. Right down to the barrel bottom. Totally and completely bankrupt.

But let’s be fair to him, this is the con. This is his great achievement. He’s just so awesome that he’s not going to bother with little details the way other losers do. Everybody else is dumb, and incompetent, both left and right, and do you really want any more of that? Of course not. So listen to The Donald: He can solve it all, everything. He can crack a safe, no problem. He can do a back flip – what are you kidding? He can end terrorism in America, all of it and soon. C’mon, now isn’t that better? Wouldn’t you rather have somebody tell you what all the problems are AND promise to fix them? Buh-bye everyone, thanks, love you all.

And therein lies Donald’s triumph: selling dickhead as if it were a strength. He’s so self-wanking that he must somehow be kinda good, know what I mean? Get it? And if you must know – funny you asked this – yes I do all of the great things, it’s true. Really, just go ask anybody. I’m going to be the best president, I mean believe me, you won’t believe it.

White America is really lapping this up. Trump is absolutely killing them. The rubes have seen too many Stallone films, where the five-foot-eight inch hero throws a hook short of Apollo’s face and the brute still goes down. Apparently they still want to believe that shit, Sly’s white-guy Kabuki even now leaving its mark. But Donald’s campaign has pulled back the bandages on an even bigger wound of theirs: America is fuck-all stupid.

For any politician to promise that he will govern by the magical Third Way? As regards to everything? It is painfully comical, as to be devastating. Still the faithful don’t see any reason to doubt Donald Trump will eclipse all who have come before him, over these 228 years. He’s the one who will – finally – solve all America’s problems, sure. But what do you mean, HOW? And what do you mean, WHY? YOU’RE the people who have been in charge all this time. We’re not the ones who are stupid, YOU’RE the real stupids, stupid. Donald’s voters are having a moment.

Trump’s insurgent campaign rests on this, the accusation that all of the elites – the senators, and the congress, and their staffs, and all of the U.S. Presidents, Republicans and Democrats, all of them, ever – have been dumb. The evident solutions to chronic problems like crime, and unemployment, and terrorism, and a struggling economy, have always been within their reach. They were just too stupid to do any better. Nothing is ever really impossible, yet nothing has ever really been done! Sad! But it’s true, or so Trump says. Now here he is, with The Way. Here comes a man with a method salutary and sanctified.

But does anybody know what it is? Don’t ask. Don’t make that mistake. Don’t bother. Donald has no idea. The Third Way is pretty much Joseph Smith’s golden plates, something only seen by him. If it even exists it’s probably too ponderous for anybody else.

This much is clear: it does not exist outside a certain group of people. Nor has it ever revealed itself beyond a certain man’s associates, strangely. The Third Way only manifests itself after some bunch of anonymous people are hired by Donald Trump. And when they sit before him, and they are asked about things by him, and they offer their current thoughts to him, that’s when the oracle speaks. That’s when the miracle occurs. Somewhere between Him and His People is the place where The Answers take form. Hallelujah.

This is the pith of Trump’s con. It’s his entire campaign: First there is Me. Then there are My People. And…poof.

This means that, for Trump to be anything less than a joke, or, shortly, a national catastrophe, there would necessarily have to be a substantial number of remarkable people living their lives in America outside power or authority – because nobody has bothered to listen to them yet, right? – that he’ll have to recruit to conjure his Third Way. But who would this be? And who outside power or authority has ever been visible to him? He’s never cared, and why should he? Mother Mary herself could descend upon Donald in a kaleidoscope of flame and he wouldn’t piss on her. Until the Blessed Virgin reaches out and smites him with an Adare Manor gargoyle he won’t bother.

Candidate Trump is nothing more than a man sitting before a crystal ball promising to summon formidable forces from the deep – only, mind you, if you’re willing to give him what he wants. Other candidates might make a big deal about demonstrating their worthiness, but he’s not so stupid, he isn’t about to do anything so fantastic or eye-popping right now. What, are you kidding me? He’ll start the gypsy hand-waving and incantations after you make him president, of course. That you can bet on. C’mon, would he lie to you?

Yeah don’t kid yourself. It’s not like the country never noticed this guy before. Donald has forever been a tabloid twit, a late show punchline. He’s a nasty and noxious personality who believes women are his keepsakes and dollars his dick. He’ll never be anything more than a figment of his own imagination…until you decide to go and vote for him. Then President Obama will have to open the White House door, hand him the keys and the missile launch codes, and he’ll become a real nightmare.

What is the law? Not spill blood that is the law. Are we not men?

And now. The editorial award in the category of High Moral Weepin’ For Sheer Gibbon Gibberish goes today to the Orange County Register, for their “The long, slow death of the rule of law in America.” And with some stentorian excerpts of the blubbering baboon blather [whatevs] let’s welcome Charlton Heston to our podium front and center, looking a lot like Cher just stole the Babby Jesus’ binky:

What’s truly unsettling is that it has been widely taken as read among both the media and the general public that Mrs. Clinton will likely avoid serious legal consequences for her behavior because the Justice Department is ultimately answerable to President Obama…

What’s truly unsettling is when an Op-Ed writer pining away for the “death of the rule of law” can’t point to some law somewhere that somehow got broken. It’s all the more troubling when we’re asked to casually accept his allegation of Obama’s lawlessness, such that America is doubtlessly and definitively doomed. Yes sir, no kidding:

Because we’ve arrived at this point incrementally, perhaps we’re not conscious of how sweeping the transformation is. So let’s be clear about what’s at stake: This is a wholesale abandonment of the foundational American principle of the rule of law.

Three paragraphs earlier it was a “trend”, now it’s the Law Apocalypse. And which laws in particular have been gutted to make banjo strings for the Four Horsemen? Sshhh. Can’t we just dispense with the “thinks” and the “facts”? Let’s instead just stare at this:

US Incarceration

Then let’s all chant together: There is no rule of law. Two million Americans live in prison because we’re a nation full of slumming hipsters. Whose turn is it to get shivved in the breezeway, incidentally? OH and…

Consider the current debate over the nuclear deal with Iran. By any reasonable reading, the agreement should have been presented to Congress as a treaty, requiring a two-thirds supermajority in the Senate to take effect. The White House, however, has refused to classify it as such, leaving Congress to haggle its way into an arrangement whereby the president can have his way with the support of just one-third of either house of Congress.

That’s not your typical politics, that’s a lynching! (…which, you might recall, was a legal practice in this country for centuries. It was still perfectly legal right up until Southern conservatives abandoned their filibusters of anti-lynching legislation back in…never. That’s right. There is no federal anti-lynching law, because the rednecks defeated every attempt to pass one. Congratulations law n’ order caucus.)

Anyway, it is laughable for anyone to bring up the “Rule of Law” anywhere in the vicinity of Republicans and the topic of Iran. President-elect Reagan’s nascent administration – before they were even sworn in – undercut the Carter presidency and negotiated with Iran’s hostage takers, which by any perspective amounts to treason. The Reagan administration also illegally sold missiles to Iran and funneled the profits – also also illegally – to the Contras in Nicaragua, pooling the revenue with drug money acquired from Contra-friendly cocaine kingpins. Cocaine dealing is illegal, I remind you, even in Central America.

And then there’s former vice president Dick Cheney.

“You, sir, were arguing for the United States to lift sanctions on Iran, so that your company, Halliburton, could get contracts with this radical regime,” Stewart told a balloon representing Cheney. “Contracts worth millions of dollars. And pardon me if I am impugning your character, but what would you make of a man whose final act in the business world, before joining the American government as vice president, would be to enter into contracts with the number one state sponsor of terror, just before leaving to become Bush’s running mate – contracts that were only legal because you did them through a foreign subsidiary?”

Your law-abidin’ patriot. Perhaps, for the liberals, the point the OC Register was trying to make was that Hillary Clinton isn’t yet in jail, and that makes a mockery of their understanding of The Law. Or their projection of The Law, which is more likely the case. Given the way they’ve behaved in the past Republicans don’t have any idea what’s actually against the rules. Dick Cheney by the way got a $34 million bonus from Halliburton just for joining the Bush ticket, and somehow that was perfectly legal…

Rush Limbaugh accuses somebody else of being weird

Caitlyn Jenner. Of all things.

What the Great American Conservative will ultimately perceive as a threat, it is remarkable.

Limbaugh said on his radio show Tuesday that liberals are trying to “redefine normalcy” in an effort to stigmatize conservatives and that conservatives shouldn’t agree to their terms by accepting Caitlyn Jenner as a woman.

He likewise dismissed a conservative blog that wrote that Republicans should embrace Jenner as one of their own to seem more humane, saying that doing so would constitute falling into a liberal trap.

Let’s begin with the fact that Caitlyn is a conservative Republican married and divorced three times – just like Rush. We assume this is what radio guy would call “normalcy.” Caitlyn however was willing to admit she wanted more for herself and made a big change. And now she’s…happy.

This behavior is of course entirely freakish and unspeakable. The only saving grace here is that she’s pretty much a one-off (…among Olympic champions turned businessmen that conservatives have long worshiped). So the imminent threat to the country comes from somewhere else – the millions of Americans now willing to accept her as she is.

Under this system, “conservatives and Republicans are the new weirdos, the new kooks,” the pundit said, “and that is part of the political objective here in normalizing all of this really marginal behavior.”

Pardon me, but conservatives and Republicans have always been the kooks. The Southern racists, the pinch-faced wifebeaters, the blood-dripping warmongers, etc. Those are the facts, ma’am. So I appreciate this kind of cautionary argument emanating from their ranks: If you’re going to normalize the freaks, the freakbashers will end up being marginalized. Score: Rush Limbaugh 1, Human Logic 0.

“I mean, if less than 1 percent of the population is engaging in it, it’s marginalized behavior. It isn’t normal, no matter how you define it.”

Abnormal? Is that a fact? From what data I can gather, the number of Americans who have been married four times is…less than 1 percent. So if this is about weirdos who want to pretend they’re normal, take it up with Rush Limbaugh.

Bruce Jenner gets some jerklove

Jamie Foxx makes fun of Bruce Jenner.

“(He) will be here doing a his and hers duet by himself,” Foxx told the audience with a photo of the reality star dad up behind him.

“I’m just busting your balls while I still can,” he added.

Some people thought the jokes were cheap shots. The guy’s life is already hard enough, you know? National Review dragged the PC Hitlers to the woodshed:

No, Making a Joke About a Transgender Person Is Not the Same as ‘Transphobia’

…Comedy is not supposed to be a “safe space.” That’s what’s so special about it. The implicit permission to offend is what distinguishes it from other forms of communication and makes it a unique part of our cultural dialogue that we can’t afford to lose.

If someone like Jamie Foxx can’t make crass jokes about transgenders I’m afraid that America is lost. We will have been rendered a nation of soulless machines. A Borgian dystopia. A liberal hellhole ruled by the living death of political correctness. Is that what you want, Stalin? OK then.

Yesterday Jenner was interviewed by Diane Sawyer:

When asked about Barack Obama addressing LGBT rights in his State of the Union, the 65-year-old former Olympic athlete said that didn’t affect him much.

“I’ve always been more on the conservative side,” Jenner said…

Jenner said he is a Christian as well.

A Jamie Foxx impersonator kidded:

The Biz Pac Review bellowed:

‘Tolerant’ left turns back on Bruce Jenner when he comes out – as a transgender REPUBLICAN

A bleeding heart at The Blaze bleated:

Bruce Jenner Blasted Online After Coming Out As a Republican: ‘Personally, I Am Disgusted’

A Dhimmocrat at the Daily Caller cried aloud:

Liberal monsters

It’s as if the wingnuts were somehow fond of Bruce. If they can only get her to start slagging the president’s balls, she could be their RuPalin.

It depends upon how dirty you like your flag…

Earlier this week some of the brothers at Valdosta State University demonstrated against racism.

valdosta flag walker

And the protest worked.

“I did not want anything like this, but I got a call from a student who told me that the flag was on the ground, and they were walking on it,” said Manhart. “I was just going over there to pick up the flag off the ground. I don’t know what their cause is, but I went to pick it up because it doesn’t deserve to be on the ground.”

Armed forces veteran Michelle Manhart could not bear to see the American flag on the ground. Such a sacred object should never be sullied with shoeprints or dirt. So she drove over to Valdosta, to the demonstration, and she snatched it up. Michelle was then immediately confronted by the school punks: “That’s not yours.” But she had an answer:

“Actually it is. Actually it is. Anytime it’s been torn or ripped it needs to be properly disposed of. This actually belongs to [hand circles] the entire United States…”

…and so the policemen stepped in and wrestled Michelle to the ground with much screaming, and the $19.99 universal birthright of all that is precious and liberty was returned to the brothers. Now Michelle’s Facefight page has gotten 3,754,662 views, and conservatives everywhere are shouting about constitutional violations vis-a-vis American flags touching the grimy earth.

So let’s all say “nice going” to patriotic Staff Sergeant Manhart. You’ve come a long way since 2007, when you were drummed out of the Air Force for doing this:

The mystification of McArdle

…slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe – am I right?

Megan McArdle writes perhaps the most mind-numbing missive of her magnificent career. It’s about evolution, of course, because science and math are to Megan what hobnail boots are to dandelions.

I know what you are going to say: We need to know if he [Scott Walker] thinks scientifically or submits reason to theology! I don’t think this actually tells us any such thing.

The god-botherers think evolution is a game of cups and balls, but when they tell you as much it doesn’t really mean anything. Except, obviously it does. It says quite a bit, actually. But I sorta kinda think I know what you’re getting at…except for no, I have no idea. I do know that every concrete thing in Megan’s world is fraught with angles and shadows. Because…who knows?

I was at a dinner the other night where the very high percentage of Americans who believe in young-earth creationism was submitted as evidence of the failure of the U.S. school system. I don’t think that’s right.

Of course it’s right. Why would the religionists be so desperate to abolish evolution from schools otherwise? What would be the point of homeschooling? Megan’s schtick is nothing more than rank gainsaying. And much like your parakeet, if you put up a mirror beside her she’ll break it with her head.

People forget most of what they learn in school almost as soon as they learn it — I got an A in sophomore chemistry, and all I can tell you about it now is that it’s sometimes measured in “moles” and there’s something called a covalent bond that . . . well, actually, I forget.

Education, I mean. Totally useless, am I right? C’mon everybody forgets what they learned in high school ( ‘cept stupid me who remembers what moles and bonds were). I wouldn’t have thought “I’m stupid” to be a persuasive argument. But first, a clarification:

And before you start looking all superior, STEM majors, what is the difference between the conditional and the subjunctive, and can you name four causes of the Thirty Years’ War without resorting to Google?

I, Megan, do remember esoteric bullshit. So don’t fuck with me, plebes! The crossways attitude has got to be some sort of Libertarian thing. Your government schooling could never make me learn anything, but my glorious free will sure as heck did! Let’s fire all the teachers, promote the ditchdiggers and then have McMegan somehow sort it all out. Preferably by getting paid to lounge around the house and tell everybody how wicked stupid/smart she is.

Most of the people who “believe” in evolution don’t have much more scientific foundation for their beliefs than a young- earth creationist does for theirs.

Do most people know about dinosaur bones? Yes. Do young-earthers know about the ‘evidence’ for creationism? No. Because there’s none. What a classic McArglebargle, placing thoroughbreds and unicorns side-by-side. Who’ll win the Kentucky Derby this year? Scientists will pretend to know, but those bastards are always lying.

…I wish [reporters] would spend equal time asking Democrats questions that force them to choose between their base and independent voters, such as “Is it a good thing that technology and legal abortion now mean that 90 percent of Down syndrome pregnancies are terminated?”

I can’t even. There is something so whacko about this woman. Let’s go to the end:

All that said, these questions will get asked, and if Scott Walker wants to be president, then he needs to have better answers.

Wait – what? This whole screed argues to the contrary from the beginning. But now Megan has changed her mind? She’s completely of the opposite opinion now?

In a country in which these issues are hotly contested, many of these questions are perfectly fair subjects on which the public has the right to know your opinions.

Believe it. And I have a question of my own: What is wrroong with you? McMeg: It’s stupid for people to ask about evolution, because you can’t learn anything from that, and even if you could it’s useless, and school is useless too, and besides people don’t really know anything, although I’m obviously a genius, and I sure wish somebody would ask Democrats horrible questions because, in the end, that’s the way you learn about candidates – by what they say for an answer, because all of us are very smart and like to ask politicians about things. Right, has everybody got all that? Oh absolutely, quite. Any of you perhaps interested in a demonstration? Why of course…WHAT ABOUT EVOLUTION?

Unless McArdle has gone completely bonkers, this is really…something. As if we were watching the different lobes of her brain wrestle like pigeons over a chicken bone. Or like seeing the debut of some form of high falutin’ digital auto-eroticism, to which I say ‘yuck.’

Some of my worst friends are Krauthammer fans

Charles Krauthammer likes to say intelligent things because he’s no Jew-hating Nazi bigot wondering if hundreds of innocent people are dying without any good reason.

“The rest of the world’s reaction to what’s happening in Gaza is Orwellian,” Krauthammer said. “It is shocking, especially in Europe. It is a resurgence of anti-Semitism not seen since the `30s, this is a recurrence, it’s all over the world, and don’t tell me its anti-Zionism. You listen to the slogan, you see the sign, Hitler was right in Germany, a sign in Germany saying that this is a veneer that is a front for anti-Semitism and it is back. It’s all over the world.”

Gaza. The reaction to it all over the whole world has been that everyone hates The Jews for no reason at all. All across the planet Charles Krauthammer has become a suddenly hounded minority, which proves that George Orwell was right all along. If there’s a point that Charles is trying to make, a good one, I admit, it’s that there are some things even worse than bigotry. There is something more despicable than hating someone for no reason, and that thing is hating someone for a reason.

For example: Acting like a violent asshole. That’s just exactly the type of reason – heck, it could even be the actual reason – why anti-slaughter sentiment may have exploded all across the world. Apart from that, just why everyone has returned to their 17th-century racist roots is a mystery. Incidentally, a fellow who equates “The Jews” with “Israeli Politicians” in order to portray millions of people as persecution victims is, I’m fairly sure, an intelligent and thoughtful non-partisan.

Given the mood I’m in I’m pretty sure I could go on all day about what a choleric viper Charles Krauthammer is. But then, alternatively, I might post the reactions of his never racist Zionist conservatives to his well-supported accusations of rampant anti-Semitism. Because if there’s anyone among us who secretly hates The Jews, I’m fairly convinced that it’s going to be us. The Liberals.

The left pride themselves on counterfactualism.


Yep, it’s all about emotions; car salesmen use the same trick [apology to car salesmen] to get you emotionally invested and in that new ride TODAY, just sign on the dotted line.

Effin’ hippies…and I’m an old hippie.


LoL Car salesmen is a Jew job.

Don’t forget – they’re also bankers, shyster lawyers and conspiracists. These are the opinions of the pure-hearted and cosmopolitan commenters at Breitbart.com.

How anyone of the Jewish faith voted for Obama and the democrats is beyond my understanding.


Simple. They put their liberalism ahead of their faith.


They have had a history of worshiping false idols.

Some would say it’s the reason why they’re always getting into trouble.

I think you just explained it. Jewish FAITH. Not to be confused with left-leaning secularists (if not outright Marxist atheists) who happen to have Jewish ancestors.

Such people are no more Jewish by virtue of their pedigree than I am Catholic for having ancestors from County Cork. Judaism is a belief system, not a birthright.


The Secular Jews you speak of are still racially Jewish. And because of their biological drives engage in communism/Marxism.

That’s an accusation right out of the Hitler handbook. How these guys can be both disgusted by those people and mesmerized by Krauthammer is a puzzle.

Unfortunately, there’s more. Internet Superintelligence™ Vox Day re-posts Krauthammer’s take to remind everybody that he predicted all of this long ago. Then he makes an argument Chuck might not exactly agree with: Viral and planetary Jew-hating isn’t just real, it’s well deserved.

One would do well to reflect upon why the Roman treatment of the Jews was so much harsher than their treatment of nearly every other people they conquered from Britain to Egypt, aside from the Carthaginians. Were the Romans mysteriously anti-semitic too or did the Jews manage to upset them in some manner?

Would you like to know? Wonder no more; it’s the latter.

Anti-semitism can be irrational but it is not always so, and pretending otherwise is both disingenuous and futile… The world knows that the U.S. Congress is Israeli-occupied territory. The world knows who owns Hollywood, the U.S. media, and the bailed-out banks. The world knows who has been flooding its nations with third-world barbarians who don’t even understand the concept of indoor plumbing.

I can’t imagine why a prudent conservative like this would get thrown out of the Science Fiction Writers of America…

…too many of us have seen incompetent, inept, and lazy Jews advanced in tribal fashion over far more capable, competent, and responsible Gentiles. Too many of us observe that Germany and China appear to be doing rather well these days despite lacking the benefit of Jewish guidance. Second, and much more importantly, no one cares why.

That bit about China managing to survive even after their Jews were expelled, or exterminated, really made me think. The fact that no one (other than Vox) even bothers to talk about their obvious fecklessness – not to mention their gob-smacking existence – proves the world is finally sick and tired of them. So we can live without you now Chinese Zac Efron, and Winona Ryder. You might think you’re a real big deal but you’re not.

I could easily go on with more examples, but I have a life.

The way Charles Krauthammer sees the world is sad and laughable. To him, the Israeli politicians running the slaughter in Gaza are fine and credible examples of moral Jewry. And how you react to what they do specifically is simply the way you see Jewish people in general. This is the staggeringly stupid notion he clings to, to the detriment of all other notions. Other than bigotry, he sees no reason why anyone would bother to complain about the deaths of innocent women and children. Meanwhile, shockingly large numbers of his fans are actual anti-Semites. They’re the types of people who would hate Charles on sight if he weren’t so darn good at reminding the world that liberals are the real racists.

Ben Shapiro to play Amos, and Stephen Colbert to play Andy…

Stephen Colbert will take over for talk show host David Letterman in 2015, and I’m good with it. I don’t watch many talk shows but when I’m stuck with one, I like to see someone with a sharp mind handle the guests. Colbert’s as sharp as they get.

Ben Shapiro doesn’t care much for the bonus to late night repartee. He’s shocked that Television just handed it’s second sweetest gig to the Steve Allen of Jim Crow:

Stephen Colbert’s Vile Political Blackface

It is nearly impossible to watch an episode of The Colbert Report without coming away with a viscerally negative response to conservatives.

That’s a nasty indictment: political blackface. Because all blackface is political it amounts to a double-barreled insult, and it only gets worse when you consider Colbert could be trafficking in the “vile” kind. That sounds bad. But if there’s a town in America where Republicans are denied access to the same lunch counters and water fountains we enjoy I’m not aware of it. I’m pretty sure the place would have been thoroughly shot up by now, jimmied from the dirt and loaded onto a flatbed to be paraded around as a history lesson (Fascism: Both Sides Do It). Fox News would run live remotes on the exhibit around the clock, all the while calling on the NAACP to disband. But I haven’t seen any spectacle like that, so I’m calling baloney.

Last week, after President Obama gave his highly-mockable “Mission Accomplished” speech announcing that 7.1 million Americans had selected an Obamacare plan, Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert hit the airwaves. He did mock. But instead of mocking Obama’s laughably manipulated 7.1 million number, he did his usual routine: pretending to be a cluelessly cruel right-winger, Colbert spat, “I wish I could come to you with some good news, but the worst imaginable thing has happened: Millions of Americans are going to get healthcare.”

Cluelessly cruel? Just look at the evidence. Here’s Colbert doing his schtick: “…the worst imaginable thing has happened: Millions of Americans are going to get healthcare.” And here’s what real conservatives have been saying – Steve Forbes for example:

Obamacare Is Really, Really Bad For You

And the New York Post:

Got ObamaCare? Too bad for you

The National Republican Congressional Committee:

7 Reasons ObamaCare Needs To Be Fully Repealed

And Human Events:

Top 10 Reasons Obamacare Is Bad for America

And Alex Jones:

15 Reasons Why The Obamacare Decision Is A Mind Blowing Disaster For America

Also Ted Cruz:

49 Reasons to Stop Obamacare

And The Heritage Foundation:

900,000 Reasons Obamacare Is Bad

If you say propaganda can be clueless and cruel, I’ll agree.

And this is precisely what Colbert does with regard to politics: he engages in Conservativeface. He needs no makeup or bulbous appendage to play a conservative – after all, conservatives come in every shape and size. Instead, he acts as though he is a conservative – an idiotic, racist, sexist, bigoted, brutal conservative.

Republican heavyweights from Ted Nugent to the Koch Brothers have spent months and millions of dollars herding Americans away from Obamacare. The latter pair even produced and released an ad depicting a creepy Uncle Sam eager to part the legs of a patient lying in a gynecologist’s suite. The Koch brothers’ message was as crazy as it was clear: Here comes a nightmare. And I dare you to parody something as bizarre as that.

We harbor no illusions as to which side of the government healthcare “issue” conservatives come down on. Everybody knows they’re disappointed to see 7 million people now enrolled in Obamacare. So why is Colbert’s parody so reprehensible to Ben Shapiro? I suspect he still doesn’t know the real reason why blackface was so offensive. You ask him, he’ll tell you that white folks did their impressions too well.

And I feel like I’m being eaten. By a thousand million shivering furry holes.

Goodbye cruel world.

The constant mischief of the progressive left is hurting the nation’s morale.

Guess who. Go on, do your worst.

There are few areas of national life left in which they are not busy, and few in which they’re not making it worse. There are always more regulations, fees and fiats, always more cultural pressure and insistence.

How I tire of the jitters of Peggy, sad-eyed lady of the highrises. The crimes of popular socialism are just too much for any woman so civilized. It’s all just slipping away, isn’t it? Fuck no but then nobody’s ever managed to use ‘meh’ as an excuse to open the next bottle of gin.

Nowadays whenever I have to plod my way through another of m’lady’s squint at the sinking horizon, I do a thing. It’s obviously a coping mechanism. In my mind, I picture her as a teenage Goth. With stringy dyed hair, and black lipstick, wearing a Siouxsie and the Banshees shirt too big by half. Sitting on a curb outside the Department of Fish and Wildlife, smoking Gitanes and cursing the bug chuckers sheeple as they walk by.

Rules, regulations, many of them stupid, from all the agencies—local, state, federal—on the building of a house, or the starting of a business. You can only employ so many before the new insurance rules kick in so don’t employ too many, don’t take a chance! Which means: Don’t grow.

We found you hiding, we found you lying
Choking on the dirt and sand

It takes the utmost commitment to start a school or improve an existing one because you’ll come up against the unions, which own the politicians.

Your former glories and all the stories
Dragged and washed with eager hands

On Twitter Thursday the freedom-fighter who tweets as @FriedrichHayek asked: “Can the government compel a Jewish baker to deliver a wedding cake on a Saturday? If not why not.” Why not indeed.

Ohh your city lies in dust my friend

If it’s Tuesday this must be Kristallnacht

After billionaire Tom Perkins likened his foreseeable future in America to that of a Jew in Nazi-era Germany we laughed at him. How many wage slaves does it take to kiss a plutocrat’s ass? Answer: I don’t know. Paste an asshole on the op-ed page and see who puckers up? The Wall Street Journal was not amused, apparently:

Ruth Wisse: The Dark Side of the War on ‘the One Percent’
Stoking class envy is a step in a familiar, dangerous and highly incendiary process.
Wall Street Journal | Feb. 3, 2014

Well this is getting serious. Now the Mammons have “a professor of Yiddish and comparative literature at Harvard” on their side, who’d surely hold a trump card in any game of Holocaust.

But is there something to be said for [Perkins] comparison—not of Germany and the United States, of course, but of the politics at work in the two situations? The place to begin is at the starting point: with the rise of anti-Semitism, modernity’s most successful and least understood political movement.

Ruth says Jew-hating has been a more successful modern political movement than Democracy, or Communism. Someone really needs to get out more. Oh, right, this came from inside Harvard’s ivory tower – the Yiddish annex. Please, do go on.

These were some of its typical ploys: Are you unemployed? The Jews have your jobs. Is your family mired in poverty?…These critics might profitably consult Robert Wistrich, today’s leading historian of anti-Semitism. His “From Ambivalence to Betrayal: The Left, the Jews, and Israel” (2012) documents the often profound anti-Semitism that has affected socialists and leftists from Karl Marx to today’s anti-Israel movement…

Perkins was wise to worry that a final solution might be on the Occupy Wall Street agenda and beg for his life. Anti-Semitism is what the Nazis only borrowed from a much larger crowd known as “liberals”, Professor Wisse tells us. And the circle is closed.

…think of anti-Semitism as the purest and most murderous example of an enduring political archetype: the negative campaign. That campaign has its international as well as its domestic front. Modern anti-Zionism, itself a patented invention of Soviet Communism…

…more commonly known as the hippies who sleep in Zucotti Park. So we can take this indictment roughly as Working Class —> Public Complaining —> Kristallnacht.

Got that? Wouldn’t want to argue with a professor now, would we? I tell you I find this all a bit ironic. You know who else complained about greedy corporatists? Who it was that took a stand against the fascistic business interests of history?

Jewish Currents: The Jewish Labor Committee is in its seventieth year, which means it was founded in 1934.

Avi Lyon: Just as Nazism was taking power in Germany. Jews in the American labor movement were terribly concerned about developments in Europe. We had a range of contacts with European labor and socialist groups who understood the threat of fascism. We formed the Jewish Labor Committee to support organizations and people in the struggle in Europe. We were involved in anti-Nazi boycotts and, together with the American Jewish Congress, formed the Joint Boycott Council. In 1936, we organized a “counter-Olympics” [in response to the Munich Olympic Games — Ed.]. The “World Labor Athletic Carnival,” as it was called, was held on New York’s Randall’s Island.

As the war developed, the JLC took a very active role in helping to rescue Jews and labor leaders from Nazi-dominated areas. (We tend to forget that the first people the Nazis went after were Communists and labor union people, not Jews)…

Other Americans noticed the trouble as well:

Twenty thousand people packed Madison Square Garden in the largest anti-Nazi rally up to that time.

There were several speakers – Fiorello LaGuardia and others. But the one who stirred the crowd the most was John L. Lewis. He gave a detailed account of what had happened to German labor movement. He talked about the trade unionists who’d been tortured and murdered.

boycott nazi germany

He described Hitler’s Germany as having become a medieval country where workers had been reduced to serfdom. And of course he talked about what was happening to the Jews. But that’s not all he said.

He said that there was only one guarantee that America would never fall victim to fascism itself – and that one guarantee was a strong, growing, labor movement.

And now we bring it all home.

Since retiring from his position as CEO of Home Depot, Bernard Marcus has become one of this country’s most vocal opponents of organized labor, criticizing unions in the media and on Capitol Hill. That is a long way from Marcus’s beginnings in a Newark, N.J., tenement some 80 years ago.

Marcus’s parents were immigrants from Eastern Europe and, as was the case in many Jewish families back then, his father joined a union. Marcus credits the union with helping his carpenter father stand up for his rights with a company that was not all that interested in the welfare of its employees.

“He wasn’t being represented well by the company he worked for. The union got him benefits and helped him move ahead,” Marcus told the Forward.

“But,” Marcus said, in his fast-paced, no-nonsense way of talking about the issue, “times change, and I think that employers today are much more enlightened. They understand that if their associates aren’t happy, they don’t produce. There was a time for unions, and there is a time not for unions.”

So this is Marcus’ time, or so he thinks. The time ‘not for unions.’ He’s a vicious bastard not because he’s Jewish but because he’s bent on dismantling organized labor. The important part here is that he’s powerful enough to do real damage. Check his comments on the Employee Free Choice Act:

“If a retailer has not gotten involved with this, if he has not spent money on this election, if he has not sent money to Norm Coleman and these other guys,” Mr. Marcus said, apparently referring to Republican senators facing tough re-election fights, then those retailers “should be shot; should be thrown out of their goddamn jobs.”

And:

This is the demise of a civilization,” said Marcus. “This is how a civilization disappears. I am sitting here as an elder statesman and I’m watching this happen and I don’t believe it.”

Like that? There are some Americans who’d make pretty decent Nazis, but it’s rarely the poor schlub sorting bolts in a warehouse. It’s more likely a guy who wields some power. All they need is a change of clothes and a haircut.
