Boston Shines with Right & Left Protests

And this is good old Boston
The home of the beans and the cod
Where the Lowells talk only to Cabots
And the Cabots talk only to God

boston.jpgAh…Boston.  The historic liberal bastion that gave us Ted Kennedy, Michael Dukakis and that poster-girl for the whacky left, Elizabeth Warren.  They claim you haven’t really lived until you’ve got scrod in Boston.

But over this weekend Boston shined with dueling protests done right.  Conservatives (not white supremacists) held a demonstration to support free speech, speaking out in essence against the efforts of the intolerant left to stifle and brand them.  The practice was lampooned in the HardWired News article of August 1, “…Berkeley…Bayonet Training…”  The legal, licensed conservative march was met with a large counter protest held by the left.

The demonstrations were orderly and largely peaceful but for a few isolated scuffles.  It Boston protestswas more like a festival, a “happening” as it would have been called in the 60s.  Now in fairness, the leftists, in true progressive fashion, did taunt the conservatives as Nazis and KKK members, which they clearly were not.  The right took great strides, admirably so, to eliminate such elements from the march.  Of course, that didn’t stop the liberals from displaying their bigotry toward their nemeses (HardWired News, August 16 “The Ascent of BigotryHow the Left is Fomenting Hate and Violence”).

I’m all for the expression of free speech and ideas through peaceful demonstrations.  And by all accounts, in Boston they remained peaceful due in good measure to professional police work that kept the two movements at a respectable distance, and jumped in to quell trouble when it did briefly spring up.  And one must acknowledge the good will and admirable character of most Bostonians.

boston-bigotry.jpgAs a conservative I continue, however, to be offended by the wrong-minded taunts of racism hurled by the left.  I’ve spent about half of my adult life as a left leaning Democrat and the other (more recent and enlightened) half as a conservative Republican.  I’ve known people with racial prejudice from both sides, but without exaggeration, I can say I’ve never met a Republican white supremacist in my life, although I can’t say as much for a few Democrats I’ve known (not characterizing them all; that would be embracing the bigotry being shown on the left).

King Rodney LabeledThere is not a thing wrong with people holding to different political philosophies.  What is wrong is violence and bigotry toward those who believe differently.  Despite the few prejudiced name-calling incidents by the left, the Boston demonstrations offered a ray of hope for civility in political discourse.  And just maybe the aspirations of a noted African-American can finally be realized: maybe we can “…just all get along.”

 

 

Trump Slams Fat People

TRUMP ATTACKS FAT PEOPLE

Calls for Their “Final Elimination”

by Noj Mocsab, Aug. 14, 2017 (NYT/AP)

Speaking to an assembly of supporters in West Virginia over the weekend, Donald Trump disparaged “fat” people, calling them worthless and announcing efforts to identify and eliminate them.

Trump Angry
Fat Hater

“Fat in government will no longer be tolerated,” he told the gathering of cheering supporters who are self-described “Deplorables.”  “It must be identified, weeded out and permanently eliminated.  It has been tolerated too long.”

Democrat Senator and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer noted that there have long been civil servants with all body types, including those with a BMI (body mass index) above the medically recommended ideal.  “We all know what Trump meant,” commented Schumer.  “The persecution and liquidation of heavy-set people in America has long been Donald Trump’s goal.  He is starting with federal employees, but the roundups and executions will not stop there.”

Multiple anonymous officials confirm that Trump is a racist, misogynist, and mean to puppies.  These sources confirm he is planning to call up the National Guard to ferret out fat people.

White House operatives immediately tried to walk the comments back, insisting he was referring to “fat” in the sense of excess government spending, and not in regards to actual people.  “No one’s buying that garbage,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said during a press briefing.  “I’m just glad I’m skinny.” (Ed. note: technically she’s not skinny)

California Representative Adam Schiff (@goofyadamschiff) said the comments were one more piece of proof that the president colluded with Russia to steal the election.

Trump spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted these reports were “fake news” designed to denigrate and humiliate the president so his administration could not be effective, and the Democrats will have a better chance of political success in the midterm elections.  “That would be great,” acknowledged Jake Tapper of CNN, “but this is the kind or hard-hitting, factual reporting people expect from us.  These ‘fake’ claims are paranoia.”

Trump and Schiff Cross Swords Over Russia

SCHIFF-TRUMP BATTLE OVER RUSSIAN COLLUSION

by Noj Mocsab, Aug. 12, 2017 (NYT/AP)

There was a heated exchange in Washington this morning centered around Donald Trump’s alleged (lol) collusion with Russia to steal last year’s election from the rightful winner (i.e. left leaning) Hillary Clinton.

Schiff goofy CroppedCalifornia Representative Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House committee investigating Trump,  met with reporters to confirm that evidence of Trump’s Russia collusion has reached overwhelming proportions, leading to no doubt of his guilt.

“A single incident may not be telling by itself,” Schiff said to reporters.  “But taken as a totality, the evidence leaves no room for doubt.”

Schiff cited the following facts to support his case:

  • Trump visited Russia once about ten years ago
  • He starred on The Apprentice (Schiff: “not directly related perhaps, but I hated it”)
  • He sat near Putin at a G20 state dinner and was seen chatting with him over desert
  • Some of his relatives or campaign members talked to Russians once
  • Russia was skulking around the Dems’ campaign and even stole some of their emails, I think
  • Russia’s DNC hacking was probably Trump’s fault, even though the Dems gave the Ruskys their passwords and hungup on FBI warnings

“But the most damning thing?” Schiff asked reporters rhetorically.  “Hillary lost to this Bozo.  There’s no other rational explanation but that it was fixed.”

Schiff’s remarks triggered an angry Tweet-storm with President Trump.

Tweet Storm JPG Trump Schiff-1

In a rare showing of bipartisanship, both sides of the aisle agreed Adam Schiff is goofy looking, although there was no consensus on Trump’s collusion with Russia or Schiff’s mama.

The Schiff revelations triggered the appointment of three new special prosecutors and four additional congressional investigations.  We will continue to cover developments in this shocking story.

(Late update: the Ninth Circuit Court has ruled Trump’s Tweets unconstitutional)

Liberalitis Pandemic Sweeping U.S. Cities

by Noj Mocsab, August 3, 2017 (TDE/AP)

The Centers for Disease Control has confirmed that the contagious disease, liberalitis, is now endemic in certain large American cities, primarily along the northern Atlantic and Pacific coasts but also in a few other major urban centers such as Chicago.

The infectious condition first emerged in the U.S. during the Roosevelt administration in the Depression-era 1930s.  Its spread was largely held in check during the Eisenhower, Regan and Bush years, but now appears to be expanding.

Gutenschmartz Cropped Editied
Gutenschmartz

Dr. I.M. Gutenschmartz, an epidemiologist and infectious disease specialist from the Universitat ob Innsbruck in Austria, is the world’s foremost authority on the condition.  In a recent interview, he explained that the virus-borne disease affects brain cells in a way that interferes with everyday common sense.  “These patients are afflicted with delusions,” he explained.  “They see and believe things that would be preposterous and obviously false to normal individuals.”

The delusions that result from the condition fall into common patterns.  Infected individuals most frequently imagine the following things:

  • Capitalism is evil, despite historic evidence that it is responsible for America’s prosperity and power
  • High taxes don’t hurt the economy or the middle class, so long as they are only imposed on businesses and successful people
  • Large government bureaucracies are efficient and effective
  • There is no connection between socio-economic systems and freedom
  • If one feels bad about something or someone, a government agency should be created to deal with it
    • Corollary: the government’s main job is to give things to people
  • Paying for things with debt makes them really free, with no cost or consequences to anyone ever
  • Problematic behaviors such as crime, drugs, illegal immigration, cultural unemployment should be subsidized with welfare payments and social programs, then they will go away

The infection was first noted in Russia early in the twentieth century.  More recently, epidemics have occurred in Greece, Cuba and Venezuela.  There are disturbing signs it may have also taken hold in parts of the European Union.  In the United States, university faculties, aging hippies and “millennials”—those born near the end of the last and beginning of the current centuries—are most susceptible.

“Eventually it runs its course, unfortunately with the collapse of the infected society,”Soviet collapse Edited Guttenschmartz said, citing the failure of the former Soviet Union, the social chaos gripping Greece and the dysfunction in Venezuela.  “These are classic end-stage scenarios,” he added.  “And unfortunately, nations that contracted the disease and eventually recovered are not immune to new outbreaks; we seldom learn from history.”

Sanders Crazy SymptomaticSenators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, known to have been ravaged by the outbreak, are cooperating with the medical community by providing tissue samples for study to aid the search for a cure.  Republican lawmakers, so far largely unaffected, are proposing legislation to place Sanders and Warren in isolation to protect against infecting others.  People who experience the symptoms are advised to proceed left to the nearest emergency room where liberal drivel can be suctioned from the eyes, ears and mouth.

Top Ten Things Trump Will Do if California Secedes

Calexit 3

Maybe it’s sadly just human nature to dislike people “different” from us.  Remember the 90s, when the Hutu tribal people of Rwanda slaughtered a million Tutsi people because…well, they weren’t Hutus?  Or the Serbs’ war on Bosnians.  How about book burning in Nazi Germany, where not only people but ideas were rounded up and destroyed, in the pursuit of a purified Aryan nation.

Like you, I’d prefer to believe civilized societies have progressed beyond that kind of vitriolic idiocy.  America, after all, is a mixing pot, a nation of free speech and ideas where differences are not only tolerated but embraced.  Peace, love, kindness and tolerance, the mantra arguably of the progressive left.

Only…not in uberliberal California, the land of plenty where dudes and dudettes can “chill” year-’round in the warm sunshine and invigorating ocean spray.  Where self indulgence, materialism and instant gratification have been elevated to the status of religion.  At the University of California at Berkeley, people with different ideas—political conservatives invited to the campus to speak—are met not with dissent, but with mace, clubs, and fiery riots.  “Keep the haters out!” they scream, backing it up with sticks and stones, the sole reason apparently because the conservatives, the “haters”, simply don’t think like them.  All done in the name of peace, tolerance, inclusiveness and love.

Of course we all know conservatives—Reagan, Bush, Eisenhower—aren’t haters.  They simply see a different path to national well being than do the liberals.  But like the Hutus, Nazis and Serbs of yesterday, Californians don’t see it that way.  And now our West Coast cousins have had a bellyful of us all.  A move is underfoot in California to secede from the Union, from the United States of America.  It’s called Calexit, a clumsy takeoff of “Brexit” where Britain voted to leave the European Union.  Now many of us would say “so what,” no harm—no foul.  Don’t let the door hit you in the rear on your way out.  In fact, an ingenious man has now started a business to help conservatives escape from La-La Land and relocate in sane and safe Texas.

But President Trump, always a step ahead, has developed a strategy for dealing with Calexit.  And here are his Top Ten strategies if California secedes:

Calexit

It’s great to know America is prepared for any eventuality!
