The New Rules

From a rag Called “Global Grind”

If ever I thought myself objective and unbiased, the George Zimmerman trial is definitely not that moment.

So let’s cut to the chase. Any attorney, jury member, judge or white person in that courtroom is not going to understand Rachel Jeantel. And I don’t expect them to.

Yesterday,The Title was  “Why White people won’t understand”.

So it’s all about Race. Not the case or it’s merits.

Just Race. The victim was black. The Perp was “white” (more latino but who cares). Case closed. Whitey did it.

That’s all anyone needs to need to know. (she has 33,000 Likes on her Facebook link by the way).

And speaking of that word “nigga,” the court might not understand Trayvon and Rachel’s casual use of the word because of how often, no matter how controversial, it is used in our communities.

So aside from the argument that we took the power out of a degrading word and made it into a term of endearment, it’s used so much that it’s become a substitute for identifiers such as “that guy,” or “him,” etc. 

So we can use all we want because we want but if you use it and you ain’t black, you”re a racist and should be destroyed atom by atom until you are effectively dead you racist pig!
So you have an Orwell Doublethink (Diversity of Non-Diversity) mixed up with a kind of self-imposed “purity” slavery that just tears the unity that Dr. King wanted into a million tiny shreds.
And if you’re white and they are black, you are automatically Guilty and should “understand” that from the get go.
Much like Progressive Democrats and everyone else.
Funny That. 🙂
And now you understand Paula Deen’s problem. It’s about race and race-baiting, and race obsession and racial segregation (we’re black you’re white we want to hate you and be judged only be people who are exactly like us and  you don’t understand that-unity only with the other brothahs and sistahs) not the Law or even the truth.
There should be a Law for Whites and a Law for Blacks.
All of us being human is irrelevant.

So Paul Deen is, a cracker, so who cares what she thinks. She’s automatically guilt as charged. Case Closed.:)

Just Like George Zimmerman. (regardless of the actual verdict, mind you).

150 years after Gettysburg thinks haven’t come as far they had and many like it that way.

That’s all you need to know.

********

Derek Hunter: It seems almost quaint now that we were a nation where parents took care of their children, fed them, clothed them and made sure they stayed out of trouble and attended school. That when times were tough we turned to churches and civic organizations that were only too happy to help. Government took care of the “big stuff” and we took care of ourselves. Not anymore.

Life is much easier now. Many diseases have been wiped out or relegated to chronic from terminal. Tending the fields to feed one’s family is now a choice, not a necessity. Our nation went from not existing to being the richest in the world in an incredibly short time not because our government directed people what to do, but because it got out of their way and empowered them to do what they could.

As these hardships sank through technological advances brought about by the free market, do-gooders arose – idle hands and all that. Progressives, they were called. They are in both parties, though more heavily saturate the Democrat Party. Wealthy elites who found in themselves the arrogance to presume to “improve society” through social engineering, which was code for legislating their will. From this arrogance sprang nearly every despotic regime the world has seen in the last century and a half.

But constant failure and the deaths of hundreds of millions of human beings do not provide the cautionary tale they should to progressives. They are simply the eggs broken in pursuit of the yet-to-be achieved perfect omelet. And they’re still in the kitchen cooking.

They, of course, are largely exempt from the impact of their whims. Their money tucked away in tax shelters and trusts, they fly private while extolling the virtues of shrinking your carbon footprint, and hold conferences in places such as Davos and Aspen to discuss how society should be made to bow to their will to improve the economy for all. They could hold these events in places in need of the economic stimulus they seek to manufacture, such as Cleveland or Detroit. But they’d rather not for reasons unknown. Maybe those airports don’t have enough private jet parking or aren’t close enough to one of their vacation homes, but it’s most likely they don’t want to be reminded of the monuments to waste their philosophy has produced. Looking at a pile of your eggshells can be unappealing.

Detroit, Cleveland and many other cities are the petri dishes of their failure, filled with prisoners of their policies. Who wants to be reminded of that?

The safety net provided by welfare, Medicaid, food stamps and countless other programs has become a hammock. It’s not one of comfort; it’s just enough to ensnare generations with the promise of a better future that all too often does not arrive. Those trapped by the hollow promise of a hand-up become addicted to the hand-out, and transform into a voting base for progressives who swear that better future is just around the corner of a dead-end street.

And 20 Million Illegal Aliens await the Progressives “American Dream”.

Government takes an ever-larger role in people’s lives and it becomes the norm. It feeds children breakfast and lunch, then subsidizes dinner in a home it pays for or at least subsidizes the rent. Progressives have transformed the federal government from one designed to barely be noticed beyond times of emergency to an omnipresent silent partner in tens of millions of Americans lives.

It is sold as a soft landing, a comfortable couch covered in velvet to break the fall. But chains are chains, no matter what they’re made of. Under the guise of “freedom from want,” comfortable velvet shackles have been constructed right before our eyes. And this prison does nothing but grow.

Soon we will become dependent upon our warden for our health care, as government moves to envelope millions more in the plush prison of dependency. Our liberty has devolved to the point we accept, with consternation but not question, decisions of nine unelected judges.

No matter what the issue or the decision, how sad is it that our Founding Fathers, men who risked everything they had on this earth to create a nation where the individual was free from a tyrannical government, would have that nation devolve into one where we find its citizens waiting every June for decrees from the Supreme Court to determine what rights we have or what the definition of a word is? We are now a nation of people who seek validation for their thoughts, actions and very existence from a branch of government?

This isn’t just about the decisions of the Supreme Court this week; it’s about the decisions of all branches of government every week, every month, every year. It’s about the next great progressive idea – a compulsory year of national service for every American between the ages of 18 and 25. Sound far-fetched? The push is starting.

This week in Aspen, progressive elites gathered to start a push for the idea. Headed by the Huffington Post and the Franklin Project, the national (indentured) service idea – service to progressive causes, by the way – has people who either married into money or were born into billions supporting it, and they are connected. The “born on 3rd base and acting like they hit a triple” brigade has nothing but time on its hands and access to the halls of power.

Get used to the idea. The word “compulsory” wasn’t chosen by accident or lack of vocabulary. A government powerful enough to force you to buy something, to redefine words, to overrule the will of its people will think nothing of adding a few links to their chain. After all, what’s a little velvet slavery when it comes to the common good?

“A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.”

And tell you what you can and cannot do with it to boot!

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY!

The Deen of Political Correctness

Larry Elder: If Paula Deen is out because of her decades-old private use of the “n” word, what about its public and private use by MSNBC’s Al Sharpton? What about HBO host Bill Maher’s use of the “c” word?

The crisis Deen must deal with confirms the observation of John O’Sullivan, a former editor of National Review: “White racism exists, but its social power is weak; the social power against it, overwhelming.”

Deen has — so far — lost her show on the Food Network and her spokesperson gig for Smithfield Foods. QVC, Sears, Wal-Mart and others are deciding whether to continue their relationship with the embattled chef.

What did the 66-year-old native of Georgia do that now threatens their enterprises? In a deposition given in a harassment lawsuit filed by a white ex-employee at a Deen family-owned restaurant, Deen admitted using the “n-word” in the past, during a private conversation:

“When a black man burst into the bank that I was working at and put a gun to my head,” she said, “I didn’t feel real favorable to him.” Deen says she didn’t use the word during the holdup, but “probably” used it later, “in telling my husband.”

Asked if she ever used the word again, Deen responded, “I’m sure I have, but it’s been a very long time.” When pressed to recall specific instances, Deen could not, saying:

“I don’t know, maybe in repeating something that was said to me . .. But that’s just not a word that we use as time has gone on. Things have changed since the ’60s in the South. And my children and my brother object to that word being used in any cruel or mean behavior, as well as I do.”

Deen has, so far, apologized, apologized and apologized. That the ex-employee is white, not black, and worked for her for five years did not seem to matter. Nor does it seem to matter that others have not come forward to corroborate her alleged racism.

Does she refuse to hire blacks? Has she mistreated them or paid them below the wages of white workers? And, for what it’s worth, Deen supported and campaigned for Barack Obama.

If Deen’s crime is the private use of the n-word, why does the Rev. Al Sharpton, who hosts a nightly hour-long show on MSNBC, get a pass?

Sharpton rocketed to fame by falsely accusing two white men of raping and sodomizing black teenager Tawana Brawley. A New York grand jury investigation concluded the whole case was fraudulent and that Brawley flat-out lied to avoid punishment for staying out too late.

To this day, Sharpton refuses to apologize to former Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones, one of the men Sharpton accused of rape, even after a jury found Sharpton liable for defamation.

One of Sharpton’s top aides became so disgusted with the farce that he turned against his boss. Sharpton, the former aide said, could not have cared less whether Brawley was telling the truth because, according to Sharpton, “We beat this, we will be the biggest n–gers in New York.”

Sharpton called the former Marine, magna cum laude graduate, lawyer, professor and then-Mayor David Dinkins — New York City’s first and only black mayor — a “n–ger whore.”

Apparently MSNBC and the Food Network see the “n” word differently.

Sharpton has called Jews “diamond merchants” and described whites moving businesses into Harlem as “interlopers.” He helped incite three days of anti-Semitic rioting in Crown Heights, where two people died and over 100 were wounded. A Columbia University professor called Crown Heights “a modern-day pogrom.”

Then there’s Freddy’s Fashion Mart. A Jewish store owner in Harlem was accused of driving a black record store subtenant out of business by raising his rent. At a rally meant to scare the Jewish owner away, Sharpton said:

“There is a systematic and methodical strategy to eliminate our people from doing business off 125th Street. I want to make it clear … that we will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.”

Later, one of the protesters, a black man, stormed Freddy’s Fashion Mart with a pistol, screaming: “It’s on now! All blacks out!” In addition to the shooting, he set fire to the building, eventually killing seven before turning the gun on himself.

If Deen is out because of the “n” word, what about HBO’s Bill Maher? On more than one occasion, he has publicly called Sarah Palin the “c” word. He has called her a “dumb tw-t” — a slang word for female genitalia. He has described her son Trig, who has Down syndrome, as “retarded.”

But, to be fair, neither Sharpton nor Maher — at least to our knowledge — has called Palin the “n” word. That must explain it.

 

So This is How Liberty Dies…

“We will admit dramatically more people than we ever have in our country’s history at a time when unemployment is high and the Congressional Budget Office has told us that average wages will go down for 12 years, that gross national product per capita will decline for 25-plus years, that unemployment will go up,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. “The amnesty will occur, but the enforcement is not going to occur, and the policies for future immigration are not serving the national interest.”

“I just think that immigration reform should be dependent on border security first … I’m fearful that this won’t fix illegal immigration and that we still will have significant illegal immigration with this bill.” -Sen. Rand Paul reacts to Senate passage of immigration bill

But it’s not like the Democrats care and the Republicans are too scared to have a backbone.

Now the fate of The Republic rest on the shoulders of “Jar Jar” Boehner.

So this is how Liberty Dies…

The ever-humble Senate, or self-described World’s Greatest Deliberative Body, forsook debate to railroad through 1,200 pages of unread amnesty legislation. Will the House be senatorial?

When Thomas Jefferson returned from Paris to discover, signed, sealed and delivered, what would prove to be the world’s most enduring Constitution, he is said to have asked George Washington over refreshments why the Framers established a Senate.

“Why did you pour that tea into your saucer?” Washington replied, we are told. “To cool it,” Jefferson answered. “We pour legislation into the senatorial saucer to cool it,” Washington explained.

Right now, the United States Senate has never been more uncool. With senators lunging over their mahogany desks to speed through “comprehensive immigration reform,” you would think it was a post-Pearl Harbor declaration of war against Imperial Japan.

The Weekly Standard even nailed five Democratic senators blissfully ignorant of the content of the bill they support.

Asked “if the bill would create a financial incentive … to hire amnestied immigrants instead of American citizens,” Sen. Max Baucus of Montana replied, “I don’t know if that’s been solved.” “I just haven’t read it that closely to know,” said Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey Jr.

From Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut came this quip: “That’s a good question. I’d have to check.” Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware said, “I don’t have the time to drill down on it right now” and Sen. Barbara Boxer of California “replied with something of a non sequitur response before the senators-only elevator doors closed in my face,” the Standard reported.

They haven’t read it, and neither has the rest of the nation’s most exclusive old boys’ club. And to understand those 1,200 pages of legalese, it takes more than one reading.

Today, the most infamous example of phone-book-sized laws enacted without being read or understood is, of course, ObamaCare. Some of its most ardent supporters in Congress are today desperate to “fix” the unfixable, astronomically expensive monster they assured us we would love once we really got to know it.

In the case of amnesty for illegals, Democrats know that what they haven’t read will help them politically. It’s Republican senators — including, apparently, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, with his big ideas about 2016 — who have been driven to foolishness, inexplicably taking their political enemies’ advice on how amnesty for aliens is their key to winning future elections.

It will be up to the GOP majority in the House to carry out what is supposed to be the upper chamber’s role: unhurriedly scrutinizing and applying the brakes to yet another ill-considered “solution” that solves nothing. This monstrosity, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, points out, is “chock full of de facto earmarks, pork-barrel spending and special interest sweeteners.”

House Republicans might want to recall President Reagan’s 1988 State of the Union, when he dropped onto the rostrum “these behemoths”: thousands of pages of months-late budget bills that were “a total of 43 pounds of paper and ink.”

As the Great Communicator noted, “You had three hours — yes, three hours — to consider each” of the bills, “and it took 300 people at my Office of Management and Budget just to read” them. Big Government had corrupted the legislative process into an insult to the American people, in which serious, informed deliberation on proposed laws had been rendered quaintly obsolete.

That corruption is, if anything, only worse today. But the House can refuse to follow the Senate’s abdication on this unread giant, which does amnesty first and promises to fix the border later. Congressmen can vote it down, or pass a sorely needed bill that fixes the border without amnesty, challenging the Senate to follow.

The House, in other words, is presented with an uncommon opportunity to show the Senate how to do its job. The voters would be sure to appreciate it. (IBD)

But I won’t hold my breath.

Let Ministry of Truth “racist” bombardment onslaught commence!

The Final Arbiters

Thomas Jefferson: When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the centre of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another, and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated …. — Letter to C. Hammond, July 1821

The Health and Human Services Department earlier this year exposed just how vast the government’s data collection efforts will be on millions of Americans as a result of ObamaCare.

Big Brother will be watching you! And he will know everything…. (and the Supreme Court is the final arbiter -see later farther down)

Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., asked HHS to provide “a complete list of agencies that will interact with the Federal Data Services Hub.” The Hub is a central feature of ObamaCare, since it will be used by the new insurance exchanges to determine eligibility for benefits, exemptions from the federal mandate, and how much to grant in federal insurance subsidies.

In response, the HHS said the ObamaCare data hub will “interact” with seven other federal agencies: Social Security Administration, the IRS, the Department of Homeland Security, the Veterans Administration, Office of Personnel Management, the Department of Defense and — believe it or not — the Peace Corps. Plus the Hub will plug into state Medicaid databases.

And what sort of data will be “routed through” the Hub? Social Security numbers, income, family size, citizenship and immigration status, incarceration status, and enrollment status in other health plans, according to the HHS.

“The federal government is planning to quietly enact what could be the largest consolidation of personal data in the history of the republic,” noted Stephen Parente, a University of Minnesota finance professor.

Not to worry, says the Obama administration. “The hub will not store consumer information, but will securely transmit data between state and federal systems to verify consumer application information,” it claimed in an online fact sheet .

And no one will steal or hack anything. 🙂 No Wiki-Snowden… 🙂

But a regulatory notice filed by the administration in February tells a different story.

That filing describes a new “system of records” that will store names, birth dates, Social Security numbers, taxpayer status, gender, ethnicity, email addresses, telephone numbers on the millions of people expected to apply for coverage at the ObamaCare exchanges, as well as “tax return information from the IRS, income information from the Social Security Administration, and financial information from other third-party sources.”

They will also store data from businesses buying coverage through an exchange, including a “list of qualified employees and their tax ID numbers,” and keep it all on file for 10 years.

In addition, the filing says the federal government can disclose this information “without the consent of the individual” to a wide range of people, including “agency contractors, consultants, or grantees” who “need to have access to the records” to help run ObamaCare, as well as law enforcement officials to “investigate potential fraud.”

Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., complained that just months before ObamaCare officially starts, the Obama administration still hasn’t answered “even the most basic questions about the Data Hub,” such as who will have access to what information, or what training and clearances will be required.

Beyond these concerns is the government’s rather sorry record in protecting confidential information.

Late last year, for example, a hacker was able to gain access to a South Carolina database that contained Social Security numbers and bank account data on 3.6 million people.

A Government Accountability Office report found that weaknesses in IRS security systems “continue to jeopardize the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the financial and sensitive taxpayer information.”

A separate inspector general audit found that the IRS inadvertently disclosed information on thousands of taxpayers between 2009 and 2010. In 2011, the Social Security Administration accidentally released names, birth dates and Social Security numbers of tens of thousands of Americans.

If these government agencies can’t protect data kept on their own servers, how much more vulnerable will these databases be when they’re constantly getting tapped by the ObamaCare Data Hub?

In any case, creating even richer and more comprehensive databases on Americans will create a powerful incentive to abuse them among those looking to score political points by revealing private information or criminals who want to steal identities.

A recent CNN poll found that 62% of Americans say “government is so large and powerful that it threatens the rights and freedoms of ordinary Americans.”

What will the public think once ObamaCare and its vast data machine is in full force? (IBD)

More likely, what will they be allowed to think?

The Imperial Judiciary

A House, Senate and president together defending traditional marriage is ruled unconstitutional. Can a Roe v. Wade-like “right” to same-sex marriage — pulverizing religious liberty — be far behind?

Under ObamaCare, the Obama administration is already trying to force religious institutions to violate their precepts and fund abortions, or be found in violation of law. There is little, if any, distance between that kind of disregard for religious freedom and forcing churches to marry same-sex couples — a new kind of “shotgun wedding” for the 21st century.

That is where the imperial judiciary quite clearly intends to take us, running over anything standing in the way. As Justice Scalia’s scathing dissent in Wednesday’s 5-to-4 U.S. v. Windsor ruling observes: “In the majority’s telling, this story is black-and-white: Hate your neighbor or come along with us.”

Justice Anthony Kennedy — Ronald Reagan’s biggest, longest-lasting mistake — joined with the high court’s four liberals, charging in his decision that large majorities of both houses of Congress, not to mention President Bill Clinton, in 1996 chose “to demean those persons who are in a lawful same-sex marriage” today.

The court declared Congress “cannot deny the liberty protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment.” It takes the judicial elite to construe the Bill of Rights’ safeguard against being “deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law” as a license to keep elected officials from acting to protect man’s oldest institution from being revolutionized.

As Scalia noted, the court was “eager — hungry — to tell everyone its view of the legal question at the heart of this case” — so much so that it, unprecedentedly, took on a case in which the five justices actually “agree that the court below got it right.”

The result is “a Supreme Court standing (or rather enthroned) at the apex of government, empowered to decide all constitutional questions, always and everywhere ‘primary’ in its role.”

“The most important moral, political, and cultural decisions affecting our lives are steadily being removed from democratic control” Judget Bork 1996 (!)

Thomas Jefferson: If [as the Federalists say] “the judiciary is the last resort in relation to the other departments of the government,” … , then indeed is our Constitution a complete felo de so. … The Constitution, on this hypothesis, is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they may please. It should be remembered, as an axiom of eternal truth in politics, that whatever power in any government is independent, is absolute also; in theory only, at first, while the spirit of the people is up, but in practice, as fast as that relaxes. Independence can be trusted nowhere but with the people in mass. They are inherently independent of all but moral law … Letter to Judge Spencer Roane, Nov. 1819

Thomas Jefferson: You seem to consider the judges the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges … and their power [are] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and are not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves … . When the legislative or executive functionaries act unconstitutionally, they are responsible to the people in their elective capacity. The exemption of the judges from that is quite dangerous enough. I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society, but the people themselves. ….Letter to Mr. Jarvis, Sept, 1820

“The Teahouse of the August Moon”. Glenn Ford plays an American officer attempting to explain democracy to the Japanese after World War II. He says, “democracy is where the people have the right to make the wrong decisions.” The statement is the essence of democracy. If elected officials make the wrong decision on behalf of the people voters can rectify the situation by electing replacement officials to make the right decisions. If non-elected officials make the wrong decisions the people have no recourse other than overthrowing the government.

People don’t become infallible just because they hold a high government office even if they are absolute monarchs who have supposedly been chosen by their deities to run the government. Those of us who are familiar with the history of the Supreme Court known that it is extremely fallible. The Supreme Court has made some extremely bad decisions, particularly.when it has gotten involved in social issues with decisions involving social theories rather than law.

The decision in Dred Scott v. Sanford is easily the worst decision in the history of the Supreme Court. The Court attempted to use the case to deal with the divisive social issue of slavery. Chief Justice Roger Taney’s ruling inflamed northern public opinion against slavery which many northerners regarded as immoral. The decision insured that slavery would be a major issue in the 1860 presidential election. The decision didn’t cause the Civil War, but provided the catalyst to turn the controversy over slavery and broader economic issues into a war.

The 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson decision is the Court’s second worst decision. The Court’s acceptance of the questionable social concept of “separate but equal” condemned generations of black southerners to mistreatment including rape and murder. The Court refused to admit that “separate but equal” was nonsense until the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision.

“Separate but equal’ wasn’t the only nonsense theory the Court accepted in the late 19th Century. The Court prevented state government from protecting workers from exploitive employers by accepting a nonsense theory called “freedom of contract”. Under this theory, government protection of workers supposedly prevented their “free” ability to contract with employers. The Court ignored the fact that workers weren’t in a position to negotiate. They had to accept bad working conditions or risk possible starvation. (Free Republic)

So with the trend of making the Supreme Court the final arbiter of everything makes them supremely powerful and that is a very dangerous game.

After all, the people Boo-ing and Hissing the Supreme Court the day before on the Voting Rights Acts are the ones dancing in the street and celebrating the next day!
And Vice  Versa.
If that doesn’t mean the whole thing is unstable what does?

White Devils

The White Devils are evil and must be collared and chained because given half a second they will put black and minorities back on plantations and “disenfranchise” them.

Damn! Them Crackers!

That’s effectively what the race baiters are saying about the Voting Rights Act decision by the Supreme Court.

You must have “black” districts or “hispanic” districts just to be “fair”. But if you want to have a “white” district, you’re a racist! 🙂

So you must segregate to be “fair”.

And the Liberals in government must have a veto power on Voting decisions in racist states like Arizona, and South Carolina.

It must always be the Mid-1960s. Time can never move on. They must fight the good fight against the White Devils and The Uncle Toms….

Meet Ryan Patrick Winkler. He’s a 37-year-old liberal Minnesota state legislator with a B.A. in history from Harvard University and a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School. He’s also a coward, a bigot, a liar, and a textbook example of plantation progressivism. 

On Tuesday, Winkler took to Twitter to rant about the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down an onerous section of the Voting Rights Act. The 5-4 ruling overturned an unconstitutional requirement that states win federal preclearance approval of any changes to their election laws and procedures. Winkler fumed: “VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination and one Uncle Thomas.”

This Ivy League-trained public official and attorney relied on smug bigotry to make his case against a Supreme Court justice who happens to be black. “Uncle Thomas” wasn’t a typo. Denigration was the goal, not an accident. It was a knowing, deliberate smear.

After being called out by conservative social media users for his cheap attack on Clarence Thomas, Winkler then revealed his true color: yellow. He deleted the tweet (captured for posterity at my Twitter curation site, twitchy.com) and pleaded ignorance. 

“I did not understand ‘Uncle Tom’ as a racist term, and there seems to be some debate about it. I do apologize for it, however,” he sniveled. “I didn’t think it was offensive to suggest that Justice Thomas should be even more concerned about racial discrimination than colleagues,” he protested.

Holding a black man to a different intellectual standard based on his skin color. Accusing a non-white conservative of collectivist race traitorism. Employing one of the most infamous, overused epithets against minority conservatives in the Democratic lexicon. “Apologizing,” but disclaiming responsibility. Sorry . . . that he got caught. 

Just another day at the left-wing racist office.

Rabid liberal elitists expect and demand that we swallow their left-wing political orthodoxy whole and never question it. When we don’t yield, their racist and sexist diatribes against us are unmatched. My IQ, free will, skin color, eye shape, name, authenticity, and integrity have been routinely ridiculed or questioned for more than two decades because I happen to be an unapologetic brown female free-market conservative. My Twitter account biography jokingly includes the moniker “Oriental Auntie-Tom” — just one of thousands of slurs hurled at me by libs allergic to diversity of thought — for a reason. It’s a way to hold up an unflinching mirror at the holier-than-thou NoH8 haters and laugh. 

We conservatives “of color” are way past anger about the Uncle Tom/Aunt Tomasina attacks. We’re reviled by the left for our “betrayal” of our supposed tribes — accused of being Uncle Toms, Aunt Tomasinas, House Niggas, puppets of the White Man, Oreos, Sambos, lawn jockeys, coconuts, bananas, sellouts, and whores. This is how the left’s racial and ethnic tribalists have always rolled. But their insults are not bullets. They are badges of honor. The Uncle Tom card has been played out. 

Of course Winkler didn’t think it was offensive. Smarty-pants liberal racists never think they’re being racist. In their own sanctimonious minds, progressives of pallor can never be guilty of bigotry toward minority conservatives. Ignorance is strength. Slurs are compliments. Intolerance is tolerance. 

And when all else fails, left-wing prejudice is always just a well-intended joke. (PBS commentator Julianne Malveaux’s death wish for Justice Thomas set the standard: “I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease. . . . He is an absolutely reprehensible person.”) 

Back in her day, before the advent of democratizing social media, Malveaux and her elitist PBS friends could get away with such vile bile. But liberal crabs in the bucket, viciously trying to drag dissenters “of color” down, can no longer engage in hit-and-run with impunity. Conservatives on Twitter have changed the dynamic in an underappreciated, revolutionary way. The pushback against liberal political bigotry is bigger, stronger, and swifter than it’s ever been.

You can delete, but you cannot hide. (Michelle Malkin)

The fatuous claim that nothing significant has changed in the field of American race relations since the 1960s was expressed most perfectly yesterday by Senator Bernie Sanders. The Voting Rights Act, Sanders wrote, “is as necessary today as it was in the era of Jim Crow laws.” We wonder whether anybody genuinely believes this. Perhaps MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry does, for she went further than Sanders. “Damn,” Harris-Perry tweeted, “that citizenship thing was so great for awhile.”

Contrast this hyperbole with the Supreme Court’s actual ruling. By five votes to four, it held that, while certain states may still be required to submit changes in their voting rules for federal approval, Congress must update the data it uses to determine which are subject to its adjudication. The dramatic changes of the last 40 years, the majority concluded, have rendered the existing formula worthless. This should come as no surprise. That formula was last amended in 1972, while George Wallace was still governor of Alabama.

In making the case for reform, Chief Justice Roberts noted that

in the first decade after enactment of [Section 5] the Attorney General objected to 14.2 percent of proposed voting changes. In the last decade before reenactment, the Attorney General objected to a mere 0.16 percent.

The difference is remarkable. In 1965, Mississippi saw a gap of 63.2 percentage points between white and black voter-registration rates; by 2004, black voters were 3.8 percentage points more likely to be registered than their white counterparts. It is a similar story across the South. So successful has the Voting Rights Act been that New York University election specialist Rock Pildes recently observed that, instead of ensuring the franchise, the Justice Department now employs Section 5 primarily as a tool to ensure that minorities are well-represented in legislative bodies. For a law that was cast as a temporary emergency measure, this evolution is problematic.

Notwithstanding the peculiar claim of ABC’s Terry Moran yesterday morning that “now there is no Voting Rights Act operative in the United States,” the rest of the Voting Rights Act remains very much intact and in effect. Americans whose voting rights have been violated are still able to take to the federal courts and sue their local or state governments. The decision brings an end to the automatic and perpetual punishment of states that are guilty of crimes in decades past. It does nothing else.

Many of the Court’s critics appear to believe that the VRA serves as vital scaffolding, the even partial removal of which will prompt the United States to backslide into segregation or worse. This strikes us as nonsense. Like Boy Mulcaster complaining to Charles Ryder in Brideshead Revisited that he never got the chance to fight in the First World War, many of today’s naysayers exhibit a palpable regret that they missed the moral clarity of the 1960s. It is not the role of Congress to indulge them.

Justice Ginsburg complains that it is not the role of the Court to force a revision to the law. Perhaps not. Amending the law to reflect contemporary realities remains the right thing for Congress to do. Instead of gnashing our teeth and reliving old battles, we Americans should consider it a source of great pride that legal provisions contrived to ensure that the Jim Crow era was brought to a welcome close have finally outlived their necessity.

So the Left will continue to CROW forever. That’s how their bread is buttered.

All Hail New Coke!

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Monday she is in talks with the NFL to help promote new insurance options under ObamaCare.

Sebelius said the football league has been “very actively and enthusiastically engaged” in discussions about a partnership to encourage people to enroll in newly available insurance plans.

“We’re having active discussions right now with a variety of sports affiliates” about both paid advertising and partnerships to encourage enrollment, Sebelius told reporters.

HHS is reportedly also in talks with the NBA to promote the law.

Partnerships with sports organizations are especially promising to HHS because the department hopes large numbers of young, healthy men will enroll in the law’s new coverage options. 

Attracting young, healthy people will help keep premiums from rising dramatically once the law begins offering new protections for more expensive patients — namely, banning insurance companies from discriminating against people with preexisting conditions.

Ra ra sis boom ba! Or is that Ra Ra BIG SIS boom ba?

Because the young are the suckers they need to pay for the older people WITH the pre-existing conditions that will bankrupt the whole thing anyhow!

Monday Night Football Brought to you by ObamaCare!

Maybe we’ll even have an ObamaCare Field somewhere.

Big Brother Field. 🙂
The Sibelius Bowl!!
Gotta get the low information, young, morons where they live.
Maybe they sponsor a Facebook page or an App or an X-Box Game…
The administration and its allies, notably Enroll America, are pushing back against opponents of “Obamacare” with a media blitz, door-to-door canvassing and public events designed to direct potential enrollees to the exchanges.

Junk mail and Junk TV brought to you, by Big Brother. Oh happy Days. Happy, Happy Joy Joy!
I wonder if those commercial will be like the drug commercial you see these days. You know the one where they tout the benefit for about 10 seconds and spend the next 20 rattling off side effects that could kill you or give some OTHER crippling disease (that will undoubtedly have to be treated with even more drugs!).
So you’ll get the ra-ra 10 seconds and then… Nothing but more ra- ra!. This is ObamaCare and the Liberal Left we’re talking about. To them ObamaCare is Nirvana and nothing in this universe could ever be wrong with it no matter what.
If this spin doesn’t send the Earth off it’s axis nothing will.
What we need is a National BBQ day celebrating the glorious and wonderful expansion of Big Brother into every facet of your life forever!!
Let’s all Celebrate Big Brother. He’s so great!
A National Weenie Roast that can toast the end of Freedom as you know it!
And the target audience is too stupid to understand it. And if you want to educate them you’re just a fear-mongering Republican who hates everyone- you racist, misogynistic homophobe!
So beware. I’m sure the NSA is listening to me type this right now… <<middle finger to you>>>
Facing these critics, Enroll America President Anne Filipic filmed a three-minute video this month to explain the law’s benefits and launch the group’s “Get Covered America” campaign. The video, like the government’s website, tries to boil down the law into easy-to-understand options. (WP and The Hill)

Translation: Pablum for the stupid and lies of omission and enough spin to make it possible for you to kiss your own ass!
New Coke has arrived and let the Marketing Blitz begin! 🙂

The Rise of Big Brother

With reports that the Senate Immigration Bill will be passed without being read and that numerous “stimulus” pork bills have been added on to it for votes you know what’s coming next.

Bend over, the giant flange of government is going to give you yet another massive enema up your back side. And if you object, too f*cking bad because they are going to do it for THEIR political expediency and not for you.

On Andrea Tantaros radio show last week, conservative columnist and author Pat Buchanan warned of an unintended consequence of the immigration reform bill, a bill which doesn’t place a high priority on assimilation.

According to Tantaros, her previous guest, former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey, said that the immigration legislation funnels money to so-called community organizing groups like La Raza with the idea of teaching immigrants “American history, the Constitution and civic participation.” That leaves open the possibility of activist groups teaching with a partisan slant — and impedes assimilation. (DC)

And La Raza is a “moderate” group in the same way the SS was in Germany.
The extremist, very racist, anti-white group is well known to anyone who pays attention. But to the Politically Correct crowd there just another advocacy group. And The Politically Correct love a good “community organizer”. 🙂
After all, it was Homeland Security and Labor  that set up the Civil Rights Hotline to rat out bosses who were “abusing” illegals (not arresting the bosses for hiring them you notice).

“This has the potential of becoming the next major civil rights movement,” Schumer told Crowley. “I could envision in the late summer or early fall if Boehner tries to bottle the bill up or put something in without a path to citizenship … I could see a million people on the Mall in Washington.”

So how exactly do you have “Civil Rights” for people who came here and are here illegally to begin with?

Because THE AGENDA is THE AGENDA.

Bob Schieffer, SeeBS News: Do you think Republicans get it on immigration? Because people like Lindsey Graham are saying if you don’t do something, reaching out to Hispanics, you — it might not — you might not need to run anybody for president next time, because with the demographics changing in this country, it’s going to be impossible to elect a Republican president if you don’t get substantial Hispanic support.

Senator Sessions gamely pointed out that a new Congressional Budget Office study has found that the Gang of Eight bill would probably reduce illegal immigration by only 25 percent. “And CBO concludes that the legal immigration will be dramatically increased and we’ll have — in addition to that, we’re going to have lower wages and higher unemployment according to the CBO analysis of this bill,” Sessions said. “Why would any member of Congress want to vote for a bill at a time of high unemployment, falling wages, to bring in a huge surge of new labor that can only hurt the poorest among us the most?”

For Votes, Senator, for Votes.

Senator Schumer said, Boehner will have to bring the legislation to a vote even if a majority of Republicans are against it. Enough Democrats and Republicans, he said, will vote for approval.

We’ll just continuously call him a racist until he relents.  Because we all know “Jar Jar” Boehner has a principled backbone. 🙂

Then we’ll have all the power we need to make any opposition to us meaningless.

BIG BROTHER will truly arrive. And anyone who dares to speak out against him will be summarily punished as a thought criminal.

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY (the Progressive Liberal Majority)

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH  (any non-liberal thought will be crushed and only Progressive Liberalism taught).

WAR IS PEACE (the war against the Anti-American “right wing” and the pull back to no involvement in the world).

After all, groups like La Raza will “moderate” their views when they have complete control over you, you white misogynistic, homophobic, politically in correct non-liberal racist!

And anyone who is an “uncle tom” to the cause will be dealt with as well.

Hegemony in Thought is Paramount.

Don’t give them even the opportunity to think of disagreeing with the Collective.

“To the future or to the past, to a time when thought is free…to a time when truth exists, and what is done cannot be undone…From the age of uniformity, from the age of solitude, from the age of Big Brother, from the age of doublethink–greetings!” – George Orwell, 1984
