Progressive Derangement

November 26, 2013

Professor Noel Ignatiev at Massachusetts College seriously proclaimed to his class: “If you are a white male, you don’t deserve to live. You are a cancer, you’re a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites…what can a white male do? He’s good for nothing”.

It has been reported that this tirade basically calling for white males to commit suicide was received by his predominately white, middle-class students with a standing ovation. The “Diversity Chronicle” found it remarkable that “a few far-right extremists” actually objected to the professor’s “sound and reasonable words” that “resonate with every enlightened and progressive mind”. Therefore, an enlightened Ivan Fernando from the “Diversity Chronicle” interviewed Ignatiev to clear up any confusion.

Professor Ignatiev clarified: “The goal of destroying the white race is simply so desirable, it boggles the mind trying to understand how anyone could possibly object to it…Those who object to my advice (destroying the cancer of humanity known as the white race), knowingly or perhaps unknowingly, are themselves white supremacists.” 

These are the words of wisdom from a retiring, tenured professor in our “progressive” education system. The fact that this is so blatantly racist that it makes Al Sharpton look moderate doesn’t even scratch the depth of its depravity, and our children are being brainwashed with twisted ideology like this in colleges all across the country. This is being paid for with second mortgages, student loans, and life-long savings.  

If this is the future you desire for your children, don’t vote. Stay home and let the deranged, squeaky wheels continue to steer the country. The past two presidential elections emboldened those who espouse this nonsense and it is being labeled “mainstream” thinking. Is it? If so, we are already past the point of no return. If not, we may still be able to avoid doom, but the “mainstream” has to vote to be heard.

Liberals Paint Themselves Into a Corner

September 9, 2013

We have been inundated with the liberal meme that criticizing Obama means you are a racist. Fear of being labeled a racist has produced silence from many who would otherwise speak against his policies. Now, that meme is backfiring on liberals as Obama is on the verge of attacking Syria.

Radical leftist Ed Asner let the cat out of the bag when he told the Hollywood Reporter that there is little outcry in Hollywood over Obama’s war efforts because “A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama”. They have painted themselves into a corner with their racist meme and are now dumbfounded.

The silence from the likes of Matt Damon, Tim Robbins, Barbra Streisand, Alec Baldwin, Janeane Garofalo, and so many more anti-war Bush bashers is deafening. These are people convinced of the idealistic notion that the only valid reason to resort to war is if free birth control is withheld from grade school kids. Now, fear of opposing their liberal, black hero, has them biting their tongues.

It would be laughable if it weren’t so pathetic – and it sure is pathetic. Liberal accusations of conservatives criticizing Obama because he is black have been turned around and proven to be a reason the left backs everything Obama does. Does that make them racists? In their twisted world, it certainly would, but most conservatives know better. It is just hypocrisy fueled by the two burning fires of liberalism: guilt and idealism.

Framing the Issue Falsely – Again

August 27, 2013

On The White House Blog, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius, championed Obamacare by framing the health care issue in a way that presents a false sense of discrimination and victimhood. This framing is intentionally misleading.

Sebelius said: “Without the opportunity to live a healthy life, there is no opportunity to live the American dream or participate fully in our communities. Without the freedom which comes from having access to quality health care, there is no freedom to reach our full potential in the workforce or watch our kids or grandkids grow up.”

She is right in what she says but deliberately misleading because “opportunity” does exist to find the American dream and “access” to quality health care has been available for quite some time. “Access” is being used as a synonym for “free” by Sebelius, and that is the way the left has been framing this issue since the beginning of Obamacare in order to sell it to the masses.

“Opportunity” is also being distorted by Sebelius because she really means “entitlement”. This has been the most egregious and deliberate distortion from the left for years. The Civil Rights Movement was highly successful in providing opportunity to those who were previously deprived of it and that opportunity remains available. However, one must take advantage of that opportunity.

Ironically, it is a Hollywood celebrity who provided the best perspective. At the Teen Choice Awards, Ashton Kutcher defined opportunity perfectly when he said: “I believe that opportunity looks a lot like work”. There it is in a nutshell.

Sebelius and the left rarely use the word “work” as a verb. They use it as a noun (as in “job”) and even then it is used as something that is provided, not earned. Telling people to work for what they want does not bring votes. That, too, is the issue in a nutshell.

Who’s the Real Clown Here?

August 14, 2013

A rodeo clown wearing an Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair inadvertently revealed the depth of inanity that political correctness and political bias has reached in this country. It should be a wakeup call slapping all with a dose of reality, but it may be that political correctness is too far gone to be influenced by reality.

Seeing Obama made fun of by this clown shocked the liberal media and the far left as much as the French Mohammed cartoons seemed to have shocked Muslims. As a result, the state fair commission banned the clown for life and will now require all clowns to undergo sensitivity training. Obama must not be mocked in any way and everyone must bow to the liberal god he has become.

When President George H. Bush was treated similarly by a rodeo clown in 1994, there was no outrage. That, however, occurred a decade ago when political correctness was just in its toddler stages. Today, it has grown into a monster, terrifying all into submissiveness – and into sensitivity training, the American version of the Vietnamese government’s reeducation camps. Let’s be honest here: It is not training, it is punishment.

Another clown, Lady Gaga, upset the PC apple cart with a disrespectful song about burkas. She can make fun of Catholicism, Judaism, Scientology, etc., but the PC line is drawn at Muslim’s religion and practices as it is with Obama and will soon be with Hillary.

A third clown, Rachel Maddow, is now self-righteously referring to the Washington ‘Redskins’ as the ‘R-word’ because ‘Redskins’ is so “painfully racist”. It is Maddow who is painful here; heroically discovering a heretofore hidden offense in a word used honorably for decades and understood to signify strength, tenacity, and courage. How many are really insulted by this?

It is not the rodeo clown who is offensive; it is all these other clowns who are trying to control all in the name of political correctness. They need to be banned for life.

Al Sharpton’s Stunning Hypocrisy

July 26, 2013

It doesn’t get any more asinine or hypocritical than this: Al Sharpton, the man whose only occupation has been as a race monger blaming Whitey for everything wrong in the black community, is accusing right-wing pundits of stoking racial fears to boost ratings. You can’t make this stuff up.

Sharpton’s MSNBC show has given him a venue to promote his personal brand of racism, keep racial tensions high, and advertise the many protests he organizes around the country. If there is a camera, you will find Sharpton pompously pontificating on the racial injustice he will find under every bed.

Sharpton is a self-proclaimed, and loudly proclaimed, “leader” of a black community that never voted him in as leader of anything. In fact, Sharpton has never been voted into public office. He was the court jester candidate for the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, recognized by all as having no chance whatsoever, but good for a laugh or two.

The laughter is over and should have ended long ago, back in 1987, when Al was found liable by a jury for making defamatory statements against white men he was sure assaulted and raped 15-yr-old Tawana Brawley. Even after Brawley was found to have fabricated the entire story as a hoax, Al continued to proudly scream racist venom, never apologizing to the men whose name he smeared forever.

For Al Sharpton, there is no such thing as a guilty black man, an innocent white man, or a non-racial event. He sees things only in black and white and has made a good living doing so. Therefore, for him to accuse white pundits of doing ‘exactly’ what his entire life has been centered around is ludicrous, even if there was any truth whatsoever in the accusations – and there isn’t.

That’s Al: Ludicrous, ridiculous, and pompous. He anchors the black community in racial animosity and never advocates personal responsibility. When white pundits do so, they are attacked viciously by Al who learned well a thing or two from Saul Alinsky’s rules for radicals.

Sharpton is dangerous and should have been put out to pasture long ago. The black community is not well-served by his buffoonery; nor is civility and journalism.

Stupid Celebrity Boycott

July 23, 2013

Jay Z, Kanye West, Madonna, the Rolling Stones, and several other celebrities have joined Stevie Wonder in boycotting Florida because of Stand Your Ground laws. This will not hurt the state of Florida but it will upset fans and, eventually, hurt the celebrities themselves – and the black community will receive no benefit whatsoever.

To be consistent, which they never are and never will be, these celebrities must boycott half the states in the country because they, too, have Stand Your Ground laws. That would certainly cut into the amount of money these people pull in, so you can be sure it won’t go that far.

This is grandstanding, ignorance, and self-righteousness in a one-act play put on for an adoring media willing to treat them as knowledgeable spokespersons for normal society. The fact that Stand Your Ground laws played no role in the Zimmerman trial is being deliberately ignored because there is nothing else from the trial to realistically hang an idealistically disappointed hat on. Blindness to reality is part of their world to begin with, so this comes easy.

The only ones who will benefit from this boycott are those in Florida who don’t know who many of these pompous asses are, don’t care who they are, and don’t want to see them in the state anyway. When the press dies down and their agents find lucrative bookings in the Sunshine State, this boycott will just quietly go away.

When will we see a boycott of LA over gang warfare? When will we see a boycott of Mexico over illegal border crossings? When will we see a boycott of Hollywood over violence in films? When will we see a boycott of New York City over increasing anti-Semitism? When will we see a boycott of Philadelphia over the Gosnell murders?

Yeah, we all know when that will happen.

Obama Feeds the Fire

July 20, 2013

Outrage in the black community after the George Zimmerman trial verdict is being stoked by the media and so-called “leaders” such as Al Sharpton, but that has been the norm for years. What isn’t the norm is for a president to speak out in such a way as to further that outrage rather than calm it.

Obama’s ill-timed remarks from the White House are sure to fuel the fires raging over the Zimmerman trial verdict. Right or wrong, demonstrators will now feel vindicated in their anger and be emboldened to continue demanding…well…whatever it is they are demanding. Many are not quite sure what they are demanding but the president made it clear that they should be angry and he blessed that anger from the White House. It’s just what the country needs: more divisive anger.

This “post-racial” president who we were told would transcend race has done exactly the opposite. The Zimmerman case was not about race until the media, particularly NBC with its doctored 911 tape, made it so. With his initial remarks about Trayvon looking a lot like what his son could have looked like, Obama jumped on the manufactured race bandwagon right from the beginning. Now, he has moved to the driver’s seat of that wagon.

Criticism of the Obama administration for being out of touch and in denial is proving credible once more. Obama’s blindness to the dangerous powder keg this trial has become dovetails with his blindness of Obamacare’s continuing dysfunction. Railing against Stand Your Ground laws which had no part in this trial, Eric Holder, too, displayed blindness to reality and jumped on the media bandwagon.

Following the media’s lead is not leadership. Serious discussions on race relations are needed, but with emotions running so high, a true leader would find a way to calm rather than inflame those emotions before attempting discussions. We desperately need that kind of leadership and, sadly, we are not getting it from Obama.

Stand Whose Ground?

July 18, 2013

The emotional chaos in the aftermath of the George Zimmerman trial is an offshoot of the social chaos the entire country is mired in. Rationality, logic, and good sense have been overrun by emotional judgments springing from personal beliefs and political agendas that care little for the common good.

Having no evidence to substantiate a personal belief in Zimmerman’s guilt, “Stand Your Ground” laws have become the fall guy for disappointment in the verdict even though Zimmerman’s was a self-defense case not revolving around those laws. From Stevie Wonder’s refusal to perform in Florida to Attorney General Eric Holder’s public denouncement of those laws, the misguided bandwagon has been loaded and is now running amok.

Should this race-based attack against “Stand Your Ground” succeed, it will be ironic, and sad, that the black community could suffer the most from the effort. Had opponents dared look at statistics as did Patrick Howley of the Daily Caller, they would have found that “…one third of Florida “Stand Your Ground” claims in fatal cases have been made by black defendants, and they have used the defense successfully 55 percent of the time” and that “African Americans used “Stand Your Ground” defenses at nearly twice the rate of their presence in the Florida population”.

As with many other issues now fracturing society, facts concerning “Stand Your Ground” have no effect on the emotional certainty dictated by an idealistic agenda. Many of the progressive tactics, rules, and policies from the Obama administration will come back to haunt those who approve when they are in the hands of a future Republican administration. That, however, is much too far-thinking for so-called “progressives” who view progress through a racial and emotionally restricted lens.

“Stand Your Ground” has now, pathetically, become a racial issue. Thank you Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Eric Holder, and so many foolish others for ensuring that the promised Obama post-racial era remains as just another burst liberal bubble. It provides, at least, some consistency.

Media the Only One Found Guilty in Zimmerman Trial

July 10, 2013

By now, it is obvious that George Zimmerman should not have been brought up on the charges he is facing and that there is no credible evidence to refute his claim of self-defense. If a guilty verdict is somehow still reached by the jury, it will mirror the outcome of the O.J. Simpson trial where liberal guilt and obsession with race triumphed over truth, justice, and the American Way.

An acquittal would mean Zimmerman is not guilty of murder charges brought about hastily because of pressure from the media. The media overwhelmingly found Zimmerman guilty of being a racist without knowing any of the facts and demanded that he be arrested, tried, and convicted – NOW. That’s how irrational obsession works and the Zimmerman trial found the media guilty, once again, of that obsession.

When (If?) Zimmerman is acquitted, the media will also be guilty of causing the inevitable riots that will occur. The black community was convinced by the liberal media, celebrities, and so-called “community leaders” that Zimmerman is a racist who shot Trayvon Martin simply because he was black. Even now, after no evidence of that has surfaced, it is the predominant theme the media is broadcasting and it is the match that has already lit the fire.

The media will point to those riots as proof of the racial tensions that still infect this country – the same tensions the media is guilty of sustaining with their obsession. That guilt also includes treating the entire black community as victims and making sure they stay that way, believing they are incapable of fending for themselves.

Wanting desperately to shoe-horn this into a racial crime right from the start, the media invented a new race, “White Hispanic”, to overcome the lack of an evil white man as perpetrator. In doing so, the media broke new ground in denial and proved they are guilty of blind, partisan stupidity. But then, we already had plenty enough proof of that.

Whatever the final outcome, the Zimmerman trial already provided a guilty verdict for the media and it is up to the American people to deliver a sentence.

Liberal Media Stuck on Race

June 30, 2013

This week the Zimmerman trial saw a huge setback for the prosecution, and the rush to prosecute brought about by political and media pressure is to blame. As it stands now, there is little to convince anyone that Zimmerman didn’t act in self-defense when he shot Trayvon Martin. That, however, has not made a dent in the pre-conceived guilt the liberal media has bestowed upon Zimmerman. The racial storm the media caused is certain to cause more damage.

Once Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson make their camera appearances, facts no longer matter for the liberal media. The Zimmerman trial is now solely a matter of race and nothing can reverse that determination. Liberals on TV have to self-righteously deny the prosecutions’ trial setback because it is now a political talking point and they cannot stray from their agenda. It HAS to be about race.

The left’s obsession with race has done nothing but increase racial tensions over the years and it often seems that their intent is to do just that. The race card is used to stop debates in their tracks when there is no substantive point to their position and it is used to elicit emotional votes for Democrats. Playing on liberal guilt has been a successful far-left tactic and, therefore, not one they are willing to give up.  Continuing racial tensions is a means to an end.

There will certainly be increased racial tensions after this trial. If Zimmerman is not convicted, there will be anger and riots in a black community convinced by the media that he is guilty of a racial crime. If he is found guilty, there will be no riots in the white community (which will overlooked by the liberal media) but there will be anger and resentment that justice may have given way to racial appeasement. Trayvon Martin will join O-Jay, Rodney King, and Tawana Brawley as symbols of racial disharmony.

President Obama, the hoped-for “post-racial” president, set the tone right from the beginning by clearly insinuating this was a racial crime. He has done more to inflame racial tensions than any other president and the liberal media love it. The race card keeps them in the game. Without it, they would have folded long ago.
