A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

I have made my annual migration to the world’s largest Doctor Who Convention this weekend. Which is a joyous occasion. Despite being in LA-LA Land, California- the Granola State- where what isn’t fruits and nuts is flakes.

With largely British Labor (socialist) supporters.

So on one panel and in a guest reception there are few Trump (and Kelly Ann Conway) jokes, mostly just just harmlessly sheepish “alternate facts” quips and the like.

It was so sad that people actually voted for Trump because they hated Hillary. How could that possibly be!? 🙂

I felt like a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.

What would happen if they knew there was an evil bigoted, homophobic,racist, islamophobe in their midst?

<<Dramatic sting music>>

Would I violate their “safe space” (as one of the attendees mentioned about California and the other other sheep giggled to themselves about it).

I am not curious to find out though. This Wolf knows not to rile up Zombie Sheep.

Zombies have no memories of their former life. You wont see the undead trying to wash windows or do your taxes. All they know how to do is swarm and feed. Max Brooks

That’s the thing about zombies. They don’t adapt and they don’t think. Literally, you could have a zombie on one side of a chain link fence and you could be on the other side and they could be trying to get to you and six feet down could be an open door and they will not go through that door in the fence. That’s why they’re so scary. Max Brooks
I am outnumbered.
Because as we have seen over the past few months, liberals don’t really appreciate the values the say, they are creatures of emotions and “feelings” and those are mercurial at best.
So I don’t my flesh rendered from the bone by some Zombie Sheep in the name of “tolerance” and “diversity”.
Nor do I wish to be banned from my pilgrimage by being burned at the stake as a heretic.
So I will quietly enjoy myself. Be amused by the hypocrisy as always. And let sleeping sheep lie. Literally, lie. (don’t you just love English…)

“What it does is illustrate that they can be dealt with. But you can’t beat ’em. They’re not gonna be shamed. They’re not going to be shamed into stopping the coverage of conservatives as they do it. It’s going to continue. No matter what kind of shame you think they suffer in a contest like that — no matter how much money they lose, no matter how many of them get fired, no matter how many magazines or TV stations or newspapers get shut down — they are not gonna change. They are hard-core, leftists”–Rush Limbaugh (2012)
So it’s onto Day 2. Gotta get more Sheep Cloak out and blend in with all the other Zombies and not let them smell my White Privilege and my phobias and that stench of “racism” that just oozes out of my very being  (In their less than humble opinion)… 🙂

The Shadow War

You knew a Grand Narcissist like King Obama would not take well to being deposed and ‘disrespected’.

He is a hard core ideologue for the cause. HIS Cause. The Left’s cause.

And the ends Justify the means.

Canada Free Press:Patience, strength and prayer will be needed to keep President Trump safe from any of the community organizer’s hidden boobytraps. Driven by an undying hatred of America, he had eight long years and ‘insider’ help to plant them.

His spies are everywhere and their loyalty is to the Cause.

“When former President Barack Obama said he was “heartened” by anti-Trump protests, he was sending a message of approval to his troops. Troops? Yes, Obama has an army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. (NY Post, Feb. 11, 2017)

This is Tribal Guerrilla Warfare. They are the Indians, and we are the Evil White Man and they aim to scalp us all.

American Thinker: On February 11, 2017, Paul Sperry, of the New York Post, reported on Barack Obama’s plans to continue his efforts to fundamentally transform our country.

Obama supports the demonstrations against President Trump and supports the efforts of “Organizing for Action,” a 501(c)(4) entity to attack the Trump presidency.  Sperry reported:

    … OFA activists helped organize anti-Trump marches across US cities, some of which turned into riots. After Trump issued a temporary ban on immigration from seven terror-prone Muslim nations, the demonstrators jammed airports, chanting: “No ban, no wall, sanctuary for all!”

    Run by old Obama aides and campaign workers, federal tax records show “nonpartisan” OFA marshals 32,525 volunteers nationwide. Registered as a 501(c)(4), it doesn’t have to disclose its donors, but they’ve been generous. OFA has raised more than $40 million in contributions and grants since evolving from Obama’s campaign organization Obama for America in 2013.

    OFA, in IRS filings, says it trains young activists to develop “organizing skills.” Armed with Obama’s 2012 campaign database, OFA plans to get out the vote for Democratic candidates it’s grooming to win back Congress and erect a wall of resistance to Trump at the other end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

    It will be aided in that effort by the Obama Foundation, run by Obama’s former political director, and the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, launched last month by Obama pal Eric Holder to end what he and Obama call GOP “gerrymandering” of congressional districts.

    Obama will be overseeing it all from a shadow White House located within two miles of Trump. It features a mansion, which he’s fortifying with construction of a tall brick perimeter, and a nearby taxpayer-funded office with his own chief of staff and press secretary. Michelle Obama will also open an office there, along with the Obama Foundation.

Obama is not content to act as traditional former presidents, such as both presidents Bush, to retire and not comment on the conduct of the current president.

He is actively engaged to oppose the policies of President Trump.  The civility during the inauguration was all for show.

There is a political civil war in progress.  The Opposition Party of the Democrats/MSM does not accept Trump as the legitimate president.  It opposes  his Cabinet appointees on party lines and criticizes every move he makes.  Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer has announced that the Democrats will oppose Supreme Court nominee Gorsuch by demanding sixty (60) votes to confirm.

The Hollywood/Entertainment wing of the Opposition Party viciously attacks Trump as Nazi, as Hitler, at every opportunity.  It viciously attacked Kelly Conway, the first woman to run a winning presidential campaign, in the sick, demented  “Fatal Attraction” skit of Saturday Night Live.  Imagine running such sick skits against a liberal woman.

The Opposition Party smells blood because Trump fired General Flynn and failed to support him.  Schumer is calling for an independent prosecutor to do a criminal investigation of Flynn.  The Democrats want to derail Trump’s agenda by tying him up with the “Russia” issue.

The Office of Government Ethics (OGE) recommended discipline of Kellyanne Conway over her innocent remark about buying Ivanka Trump’s clothing.

Obama did not fire Hillary for using an unsecured email server, nor counseled her, nor did any Democrats call for an independent prosecutor when the FBI’s James Comey found that Hillary did not have “intent” to violate the laws.  But Conway and Flynn, who clearly had no intent to violate any laws, are attacked by the Opposition Party, and with little support from Republicans.  In fact, Republican Jason Chaffetz referred the Conway matter to the OGE.

The Republicans and Trump had better realize quickly that the Opposition Party is out to destroy the Trump presidency.  Trump should have supported a loyalist like General Flynn.  Hopefully he will support Conway and tell the OGE to investigate Hillary.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”–Josef Goebbels

Alinksy Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy. “If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”

Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.

Orwell: The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp.

 Proving once again that irony will never die, through their Resistance Movement, American Leftists have embraced George Orwell’s 1984. Let’s start with the biggie, let’s open with how truly Orwellian it is for the Left to pretend they are on the side of 1984’s angels.

After all, Orwell’s seminal work is a cautionary tale aimed directly at the king of all Leftists, Josef Stalin, at the immorality of stripping one’s individualism in service to the State — this includes the horrors  of an all-powerful central government (that knows what’s best for us), speech and thought policing, endless wars, and the elimination of the family and gender differences.

We conservatives are not without our flaws, but we most certainly are not the ones running around portraying a centralized federal government as the solution to every problem, policing language, brutalizing thought-apostates, seeking the destruction of religious faith, spewing anti-science nonsense about gender-fluidity, or doing everything possible to eliminate the nuclear family — including the replacement of the father with a government check. We are also not the ones ginning up endless race and gender wars based on viralized lies and hoaxed hate crimes

And if you’re looking for Big Brother, for a 24/7 television-monster relentlessly dedicated to destroying Thought Criminals, or anyone who dares threaten the power of central government, what do you think our national news media is? Have you noticed how our media ceaselessly hounds an individual until he or she says what the media demands they say? Have you heard of CNN? And if you’re looking for a Two Minutes Hate… click here.

It would be a few years before I read the novel, but I first saw Michael Radford’s brilliant film version of the Orwell classic the same year it was produced, in 1984. At the time, as engrossing as it was, the dystopian events depicted seemed preposterous. Here we were in the middle of Reagan’s golden-era. It is Morning in America and I’m supposed to worry about words being placed off limits, guys in dresses peeing next to my daughter, and the Christian Gospels being portrayed on 24/7 cable news s as bigotry?

Are you kidding me!?

No, Orwell wasn’t.

Nevertheless, I’ve saved my favorite irony for last… Where the Left got Orwell exactly correct.

Anyone who’s actually read 1984 knows that The Resistance (or The Brotherhood) is a honey trap, a creation of the Party used to snag Thought Criminals and lure potential troublemakers out into the open. In other words, there is no Resistance movement as-advertised, there is no organization dedicated to liberating the Individual. There is only the Party, there is only Big Brother.

Now take a good long look around and what you’ll see is the deeply-disturbing spectacle of the American Left using their own Resistance movement in the exact same way Big Brother did — to out dissenters, to crush the souls of dissenters, to make violence against dissent, to make an example of those who think in ways unapproved by the Party, to silence, humiliate and punish Thought Criminals. 

On giant, flat-screen monitors throughout the world, in-between their never-ending propaganda and lies and Fake News, the Big Brother of 24/7 cable news regularly presents a Two Minutes Hate with President Trump in place of Emmanuel Goldstein.

And you better believe that the all-powerful, all-seeing, all-knowing Party/Big Brother/Resistance is closely watching … watching to see if your hate is sincere enough, if you hate as much as you are required to hate, if you truly believe that 2 + 2 = Freedom Is Forcing a Christian to Bake a Gay Wedding Cake… and if you don’t,  you will be whisked off to the Ministry of Love where Room 101, and your personal destruction, awaits.

The good news is that we are still America, which means that the violence, intolerance, serial lies, and hate being spewed by the Resistance, will only backfire. (Daily Wire)

The First to Fall

Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals:

Rule 3: Whenever possible, go outside the experience of an opponent. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.

Rule 4: Make opponents live up to their own book of rules. “You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

Rule 6: A good tactic is one your people enjoy. “If your people aren’t having a ball doing it, there is something very wrong with the tactic.”

Rule 7: A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues.

Rule 8: Keep the pressure on. Use different tactics and actions and use all events of the period for your purpose. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition. It is this that will cause the opposition to react to your advantage.”

But most especially:

Rule 11: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.

The Political Assassination of Michael Flynn

By

If we are to believe the Trump White House, National Security Adviser Michael Flynn just resigned because he lied about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the vice president. As White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway told NBC’s “Today Show” on Tuesday: “Misleading the vice president really was the key here.”

That sounds about as credible as when the president told CIA employees that the media had invented the story about his enmity toward the spy agency, not even two weeks after he had taken to Twitter to compare the CIA to Nazis. It’s about as credible as President Donald Trump’s insistence that it didn’t rain during his inauguration. Or that millions of people had voted illegally in the election he just won.

The point here is that for a White House that has such a casual and opportunistic relationship with the truth, it’s strange that Flynn’s “lie” to Pence would get him fired. It doesn’t add up.

It’s not even clear that Flynn lied. He says in his resignation letter that he did not deliberately leave out elements of his conversations with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak when he recounted them to Vice President Mike Pence. The New York Times and Washington Post reported that the transcript of the phone call reviewed over the weekend by the White House could be read different ways. One White House official with knowledge of the conversations told me that the Russian ambassador raised the sanctions to Flynn and that Flynn responded that the Trump team would be taking office in a few weeks and would review Russia policy and sanctions. That’s neither illegal nor improper.  

What’s more, the Washington Post reported Monday night that last month Sally Yates, then the acting attorney general, had informed the White House that Flynn discussed sanctions with Kislyak and that he could be susceptible to blackmail because he misled Pence about it. If it was the lie to Pence that sunk Flynn, why was he not fired at the end of January?

 

A better explanation here is that Flynn was just thrown under the bus. His tenure as national security adviser, the briefest in U.S. history, was rocky from the start. When Flynn was attacked in the media for his ties to Russia, he was not allowed by the White House to defend himself. Over the weekend, he was instructed not to speak to the press when he was in the fight for his political life. His staff was not even allowed to review the transcripts of his call to the Russian ambassador.  

There is another component to this story as well — as Trump himself just tweeted. It’s very rare that reporters are ever told about government-monitored communications of U.S. citizens, let alone senior U.S. officials. The last story like this to hit Washington was in 2009 when Jeff Stein, then of CQ, reported on intercepted phone calls between a senior Aipac lobbyist and Jane Harman, who at the time was a Democratic member of Congress. 

Normally intercepts of U.S. officials and citizens are some of the most tightly held government secrets. This is for good reason. Selectively disclosing details of private conversations monitored by the FBI or NSA gives the permanent state the power to destroy reputations from the cloak of anonymity. This is what police states do.  

In the past it was considered scandalous for senior U.S. officials to even request the identities of U.S. officials incidentally monitored by the government (normally they are redacted from intelligence reports). John Bolton’s nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations was derailed in 2006 after the NSA confirmed he had made 10 such requests when he was Undersecretary of State for Arms Control in George W. Bush’s first term. The fact that the intercepts of Flynn’s conversations with Kislyak appear to have been widely distributed inside the government is a red flag.

Representative Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told me Monday that he saw the leaks about Flynn’s conversations with Kislyak as part of a pattern. “There does appear to be a well orchestrated effort to attack Flynn and others in the administration,” he said. “From the leaking of phone calls between the president and foreign leaders to what appears to be high-level FISA Court information, to the leaking of American citizens being denied security clearances, it looks like a pattern.”

Nunes said he was going to bring this up with the FBI, and ask the agency to investigate the leak and find out whether Flynn himself is a target of a law enforcement investigation. The Washington Post reported last month that Flynn was not the target of an FBI probe.  

The background here is important. Three people once affiliated with Trump’s presidential campaign — Carter Page, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone — are being investigated by the FBI and the intelligence community for their contacts with the Russian government. This is part of a wider inquiry into Russia’s role in hacking and distributing emails of leading Democrats before the election.

Flynn himself traveled in 2015 to Russia to attend a conference put on by the country’s propaganda network, RT. He has acknowledged he was paid through his speaker’s bureau for his appearance. That doesn’t look good, but it’s also not illegal in and of itself. All of this is to say there are many unanswered questions about Trump’s and his administration’s ties to Russia.

But that’s all these allegations are at this point: unanswered questions. It’s possible that Flynn has more ties to Russia that he had kept from the public and his colleagues. It’s also possible that a group of national security bureaucrats and former Obama officials are selectively leaking highly sensitive law enforcement information to undermine the elected government.

Flynn was a fat target for the national security state. He has cultivated a reputation as a reformer and a fierce critic of the intelligence community leaders he once served with when he was the director the Defense Intelligence Agency under President Barack Obama. Flynn was working to reform the intelligence-industrial complex, something that threatened the bureaucratic prerogatives of his rivals.

He was also a fat target for Democrats. Remember Flynn’s breakout national moment last summer was when he joined the crowd at the Republican National Convention from the dais calling for Hillary Clinton to be jailed.

In normal times, the idea that U.S. officials entrusted with our most sensitive secrets would selectively disclose them to undermine the White House would alarm those worried about creeping authoritarianism. Imagine if intercepts of a call between Obama’s incoming national security adviser and Iran’s foreign minister leaked to the press before the nuclear negotiations began? The howls of indignation would be deafening.

In the end, it was Trump’s decision to cut Flynn loose. In doing this he caved in to his political and bureaucratic opposition. Nunes told me Monday night that this will not end well. “First it’s Flynn, next it will be Kellyanne Conway, then it will be Steve Bannon, then it will be Reince Priebus,” he said. Put another way, Flynn is only the appetizer. Trump is the entree.

He’s the sitting Peking Duck for the Preying Mantis of “Tolerance” and “Diversity”?

Robert Gehl reports that for being America’s first black president, there’s quite a lot that Barack Obama simply didn’t do that would help many African Americans.

He didn’t improving working conditions, he didn’t tackle crime in America’s biggest cities, and he almost completely ignored one the most important historical legacies of black culture in America.

Well, Donald Trump is trying to change that. He is drafting an executive order expected to help struggling Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

 

These schools have been a cornerstone in raising education standards and providing quality post-secondary education for thousands of black students. But due to competition, poor management, and a lack of endowments, many of these schools have had to close.

When Trump was in a meeting called by Omarosa Manigault, one of his advisors, he expressed disappointment that HBCUs were suffering so much. Trump was also moved at how poorly HBCUs fared under the Obama Administration. This piqued his interest, the Root reports, when a consultant told him “he could go down as one of the greatest presidents in modern history, and that his support of HBCUs was badly needed.”

Trump asked what he needed to do, and Omarosa —a Howard alum—reportedly said that she was working on an executive order, ostensibly to come out during Black History Month.

Though details are scarce, sources who speculate that the White House Initiative on HBCUs, housed under the Education Department under Obama, might be moved to be run out of the White House.

 

Omarosa, who had no comment on the report, did say, “I can, however, reinforce the president’s commitment to support historically black colleges and universities, as well as school choice, as he stated throughout the campaign.”

Barack Obama gave a commencement speech back in May at Howard University, considered the top black college in the country. The day before his speech, Johnny C. Taylor Jr., president of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, an organization that advocates for HBCUs, said that Obama gets failing marks from most of the leaders of the country’s 100-plus institutions.

“Giving a speech at the end of an eight-year term during [which] the schools were permanently damaged doesn’t make up for it,” he said.

Maybe President Trump can fix that.

But don’t expect the Democrats or The Teacher’s Unions to do anything but hinder it.

Head explodes from the Doublethink overload and the Thoughtcrime Alerts.

The dress was designed by Andre Soriano, a Filipino immigrant who came to our shores in search of the American dream.

“I’ve never been in the political area,” Soriano told The Hollywood Reporter. “However, it’s just so crazy that people are getting beat up because they voted for Trump.”

Mr. Soriano was inspired to create his masterpiece after watching the “Nasty Woman” protest in Washington, D.C.

“I am an American,” he told THR. “I moved here from the Philippines and I highly believed in the trueness of what this country can bring. It’s about bringing people together, that’s the message.”

It’s worth repeating that Mr. Soriano came to America legally.

Unfortunately, the red, white and blue dress is not available at Nordstrom’s, Sears or TJ Maxx. Sorry, fashionistas.

Liberals suffered a near melt-down on social media. Much of the vitriol is simply too vile to share in a family-friendly column.

I reached out to the Centers for Disease Control but they did not have any data on how many Grammy watch parties were ruined by triggered liberals.

Likewise, I cannot confirm reports that Staples Center set up emergency safe spaces for overly-sensitive, auto-tuned celebrities.

I will say this about Miss Villa – she’s got moxie – either that or she’s slap crazy.

Scorched Earth

Folks…that Executive Order could have been written perfectly and Hobart would have still issued the stay and the 9th Circuit Court would have still upheld it. The situation is at exactly the same point it would have been if the order had been written by Ruth Bader Ginsburg and then issued thru President Trump. It’s scorched earth time. You know that.–Dennis Miller

And the Democrats want it to burn…They haven’t been this mad or crazied since we took their slaves away.

The following is a Thoughtcrime.

Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime IS death. (1.2.42-43)

The Party takes loyalty seriously, and does not tolerate any acts of subversion – even if they are mere thoughts.

 

Robert Gehl reports back in 1857, in a landmark decision, a Supreme Court packed with Democrats determined that not only was Dred Scott not a citizen, not only that he was property – but that black people might actually benefit from slavery.

It wasn’t until Republicans pushed through the 13th Amendment in 1865 that slavery was finally abolished in America. Democrats in the south tried to scuttle the new law with Jim Crow laws and other rules designed to keep blacks enslaved, but eventually that went down as well, writes Bill Federer at WorldNetDaily.

On Feb. 5, 1866, Republican Rep. Thaddeus Stevens introduced legislation to give former slaves “40 acres and a mule,” but Democrats opposed it, led by President Andrew Johnson. On April 9, 1866, Republicans in Congress overrode President Johnson’s veto and passed the Civil Rights Act of 1866, conferring rights of citizenship on freed slaves.

To force Southern states to extend state citizenship rights to former slaves, Republicans in the U.S. House passed the 14th Amendment, May 10, 1866, as did the Senate, June 8, 1866. One hundred percent of Democrats voted against it.

The 14th Amendment was adopted by the states on July 28, 1868.

Republican Rep. John Farnsworth of Illinois stated, March 31, 1871: “The reason for the adoption (of the 14th Amendment) … was because of … discriminating … legislation of those states … by which they were punishing one class of men under different laws from another class.”

This Democrat affinity for racism continued through the 19th century and into the 20th century.

Republican President Theodore Roosevelt stated Dec. 3, 1906: “White men are lynched, but the crime is peculiarly frequent in respect to black men. … Governor Candler, of Georgia, stated … ‘I can say of a verity that I have, within the last month, saved the lives of half a dozen innocent Negroes who were pursued by the mob, and brought them to trial in a court of law in which they were acquitted.’ As Bishop Galloway, of Mississippi, has finely said: ‘The mob lynches a Negro charged with rape will in a little while lynch a white man suspected of crime. Every Christian patriot in America needs to lift up his voice in loud and eternal protest against the mob spirit that is threatening the integrity of this Republic. …’”

Republican President Theodore Roosevelt continued: “There is but one safe rule … that is, to treat each man, whatever his color, his creed, or his social position, with even-handed justice. … Reward or punish the individual on his merits as an individual. Evil will surely come in the end to both races if we substitute for this. … Every lynching represents … a loosening of the bands of civilization. … No man can take part in the torture of a human being without having his own moral nature permanently lowered. Every lynching means just so much moral deterioration in all the children who have any knowledge of it, and therefore just so much additional trouble for the next generation of Americans.”

But it’s not just ancient history. Democrat President Woodrow Wilson segregated the Navy. Gen. Dwight Eisenhower had to overcome Democrat-led racism to arm black soldiers with guns.

Republican President Eisenhower ordered the desegregation of Washington, D.C., public schools after the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision. When Southern Democrat governors resisted desegregation, Republican Eisenhower sent in federal troops. Eisenhower forced integration by having federal soldiers escort black students.

In 1953, Republican Vice President Richard Nixon chaired a committee which sought to eliminate discrimination on the basis of race or color in the employment practices of government contractors. In 1957 and 1959, Republican President Eisenhower proposed civil rights bills to enforce the 15th Amendment, strengthening the rights of African-American to vote. Senate Democrats filibustered the bills and watered them down.

In 1959, when Southern Democrats demanded that any who violated the new civil rights bill should be tried before all-white Southern juries, Republican Vice President Richard Nixon gave the deciding Senate vote to kill the Southern amendment. Southern Democrats who opposed desegregation included former Ku Klux Klansman Sen. Robert Byrd and Gov. George Wallace.

After the Birmingham Children’s Crusade Protest, where police dogs and fire hoses were used against African-Americans, President John F. Kennedy called for a bill emulating the Republican Civil Rights Act of 1875.

Southern Democrats fervently opposed it, as Democrat Sen. Richard Russell in 1964: “We will resist to the bitter end any measure or any movement which would have a tendency to bring about social equality and intermingling and amalgamation of the races in our (Southern) states.”

Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd filibustered the Civil Rights Bill for 14 hours and 13 minutes on June 10, 1964.

Democrat Sen. Strom Thurmond stated in 1964: “This so-called Civil Rights Proposals, which the President has sent to Capitol Hill for enactment into law, are unconstitutional, unnecessary, unwise and extend beyond the realm of reason. This is the worst civil-rights package ever presented to the Congress and is reminiscent of the Reconstruction proposals and actions of the radical Republican Congress.”

The phrase “the bribe or the bullet” refers to positive or negative human motivations, like in the case of generations of past parents who motivated children with a piece of candy for obedience or a swat to the rear for disobedience.

From the Civil War to Lyndon Johnson, Southern Democrats were accused of engaging in negative motivation and intimidation tactics to keep African-Americans from voting.

As television and media coverage of these tactics grew, it resulted in bad press for the Democratic Party. Political strategists proposed a switch from “the bullet” to “the bribe,” from “intimidation” to “entitlement.”

In other words, if the African-American vote could no longer be suppressed, then maybe it could be manipulated and controlled through dependency on entitlement programs.

Even though Democrat senators filibustered the Civil Rights legislation nonstop for 71 days, from March 30 to June 10, President Lyndon Johnson persuaded the leaders of his party to support a compromised bill, which he signed July 2, 1964.

Then came LBJ’s “War on Poverty, which did more to harm the African-American community than any other federal program.

Beginning in the 1960s, educational emphasis migrated from strictly academic achievement to include more behavior modification. Voters who were less educated tended to be more easily manipulated, as foreshadowed in the pre-Civil War South where it was a crime to teach slaves to read.

An effort began to redefined “racism” to mean anyone opposing big government welfare programs.

In a tragic irony, growing dependency on government handouts appeared reminiscent of the dependency that existed on Southern Democrat plantations where slaves waited for handouts from their masters.

Media, music and entertainment began to increasingly be employed to stir passions and prejudices for political purposes, as President William Henry Harrison warned in his inaugural, 1841: “The understanding of men can be warped and their affections changed by operations upon their passions and prejudices.” (Federalist)

Extreme Vetting

Leftists pride themselves on their supposed tolerance. Left-leaning academics constantly identify the supposed authoritarian personality with refusal to hear other points of views or explore other ideas – but it’s the left that now seems committed to preventing ideological diversity at any cost.

hate-free-zone

Today’s example: Washington D.C. residents are requiring potential roommates to be screened by their 2016 vote.

According to The New York Times:

On Twitter, Reddit, Craigslist and in Facebook groups, people have been screening for Trump supporters since at least last fall. Such ads, more than a dozen of which have been posted on Craigslist since Inauguration Day, are only a fraction of the thousands of posts on the site, but they nonetheless represent a small act of defiance in an area that heavily favored Hillary Clinton and where residents have remained politically active since the election.

This, of course, is ridiculous. There are nice people all over the political spectrum. It would be foolish to marry someone diametrically opposed to your values, but sharing a flat with somebody and splitting the rent is a different story. But listen to the leftist whining over the possibility of having to talk politics with someone with a different point of view:

“I can’t live with someone who supports a ‘leader’ with those types of ideals,” Jessica, 32, a teacher who did not want her last name used because she feared harassment online, wrote in an email.

Which type of ideals, precisely? Trump is socially liberal. He’s not averse to big government. And just because somebody voted for Trump doesn’t mean he or she endorses everything Trump says or does. But she’s not the only leftist performing such extreme ideological vetting:

In one recent ad, a couple in the area who identified themselves as “open-minded” and liberal advertised a $500 room in their home: “If you’re racist, sexist, homophobic or a Trump supporter please don’t respond. We won’t get along.”

The best part of this particular ad is the open acknowledgment that you don’t have to be a racist, sexist, or homophobe to have voted for Trump – but you aren’t welcome if you voted for Trump nonetheless.

This is how today’s leftists think. If you voted differently from them, you must be cast out into the wilderness. Seek friends elsewhere. Seek acquaintances elsewhere. You are human refuse, and you must be banished from all human company.

There’s some irony here: the same people rip-roaring mad over the idea of extreme vetting for Muslim immigrants from terror-rich countries are using extreme vetting for their roommates to avoid having to talk with people who voted for Trump.

There is one problem for the left: there are a lot of people who disagree with them. If those people start applying the same rules, there won’t be much politics left, just a stark, unbridgeable gap that ends with the left out in the cold.

Or an ungovernable divide.
