Successful American Author Whines About Lack Of Liberty

Apparently, blacks don't get the same liberty as whites in America.

goldie_lack_liberty.jpg

Of course, it must be true since we never see any really successful, accomplished blacks. There has never been a black president, or billionaire black business women, or popular black entertainers, or...

Oh, wait. Never mind.

BREAKING: George Bush Uses Common Images To Paint Portraits!

OMG! The humanity! If you didn't hate George Bush before this discovery, surely you will now!

George W. Bush's solo art show "The Art of Leadership: A President's Personal Diplomacy" has just opened at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas, Texas. Moving on from paintings of dogs and bath time, the exhibit features 30 oil-on-board paintings of world leaders. It appears as if they are all lazy reproductions of some of the first Google image search results.

Here's an example of the blatant, STOLEN artwork of which Bush is accused by this left-wing investigative journalist:

faireyapcase.jpg

Oh, wait! That isn't it. Forget you saw that one. It is this one:

putin-bush-google-searrch-result.jpg

OH, THE HORROR! I can't believe Bush has a hobby painting portraits of world leaders and he has the audacity to use existing, popular pictures!

A real President would have loaded up a Presidential plane with a full security detail and flown - at taxpayer expense - to each country and had the leaders sit for their portraits. And then sent the wife and kids to another country for a vacation.

Moonbat Meltdown

(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)

A UCLA student note taker has a meltdown moments after a UCLA Anti-Israel Divestment resolution was defeated:

These leftists don't have the mental capacity to deal with defeat. The video above shows their mentality. They are spoiled little brats who throw tantrums when they don't get their way.

They are incapable of debate, which is why they would rather stifle free speech than to challenge ideas in a fair and civilized manner.

NAACP: Photo ID Required To Participate In Anti-Voter ID Protest

They require a photo ID to exercise 1st Amendment right to protest, but reject photo ID to vote in an election. That's the leftist mindset at work there...

The NAACP planned a peaceful march to protest the requirement of voter ID laws on Saturday at the "Moral March on Raleigh." Organizers said 20,000 to 30,000 Americans showed up to the protest. Rev. William Barber, president of the state NAACP, stated, "We return to Raleigh with a renewed strength and a renewed sense of urgency. This Moral March inaugurates a fresh year of grassroots empowerment, voter education, litigation and nonviolent direct action."

In a flyer sent out entitled "Important Do's and Don'ts for Marchers," some very responsible marching elements were listed for people's safety.

The most ironic recommendation on the list comes half way down, where march coordinators tell recipients:

"DO bring photo identification (driver's license, passport or other valid photo ID) with you and keep it on your persons at all times."

So, bring a photo ID to an anti-photo ID protest. Perfect.

Incidentally, you also need a photo ID to get into an Obama speech.

Liberal Pansies Need Counseling After Seeing Anti-Obama Graffiti

That's the title I would have used for this article (emphasis mine):

leichman-high-school-special-education-center-gaqrffiti-2.jpg

A San Fernando Valley high school has been vandalized with hate messages, including threats to President Barack Obama, authorities announced Monday.

The graffiti was discovered around 7 a.m. when staff at Leichman High School Special Education Center, located at 19034 Gault St. in Reseda, returned to campus.

The damage included pictures of bombs, anti-LAPD rhetoric, swastikas and a "KILL OBAMA?" statement scrawled across the side of a main building. [...]

School is currently out for the summer and no students were on campus when the crime occurred, Trivino said.

"Our maintenance and operations team removed the graffiti. Counseling is offered to staff," he added.

Seriously? The staff needs counseling for graffiti? Does this mean some of them will now suffer from PTSD whenever they see a mark on a wall? Will some apply for (and probably receive) disability because they are no longer able to function?

Sadly, I think so.

Holderinsky, Keeper Of The Tablets

He is the Moses of our time.

Update View video at link above or here. It's auto start so had to remove

MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson called Attorney General Eric Holder “the Moses of our time” Wednesday on “Martin Bashir”:[...]

Wow, with an insight such as that, no wonder MSNBC is cleaning up in the ratings this month. And such a comparison makes perfect sense, considering that then-Newsweek editor Evan Thomas, back when the Washington Post owned the magazine, declared Holder’s boss to be God in 2009. Those ten commandments aren’t going to deliver themselves to us.

No matter how much others at the Washington Post may hate them[ Jaw dropper...ed]

Soledad O'Brien: White People Who Aren't Racists Are Racists

You can't win with the left. If you talk about racism, you are a racist. If you see no racism to talk about, you are a racist. If you consider a person's race when judging them, you are a racist. If you don't consider a person's race when judging them, you are a racist.

This, of course, only applies to Conservative whites (and those 'Uncle Tom' Conservative blacks). If you are a white liberal, like O'Brien, you can prove you are not racist by accusing all whites of being racists. You know, turning on your own race to prove your solidarity to all non-white races. Unless you are a minority. Then turning on your own race makes you a racist by default.

O'Brien, just named a distinguished visiting fellow at Harvard's Graduate School of Education, told the school's Institute of Politics that she's often confronted by whites who want to take issue with her documentaries on race in America.

"People would sometimes, when I give speeches, stand up and say, 'You know, I think your black America documentaries (are) divisive. I think like, you know, listen, we shouldn't think of ourselves as African-American. We're Americans, and everybody should stop separating themselves out,'" she said in a new video from the institute.

She continued: "First of all, it's only white people who ever said that -- 'if we could just see beyond race. If only people didn't see race, it would be such a better place, and you are responsible for bringing up these icky race issues, Soledad, you should just let sleeping dogs lie.'"

O'Brien added: "I was like, again, 'OK, white person, this is a conversation you clearly are uncomfortable with, and I have no problem seeing race, and I think we should talk about race."

Got it? It's racist to talk about race and to not talk about race.

Maybe this will help:

Millionaire Blames Slavery For Tax Bill

Lauryn Hill blames her unpaid tax bill on the slavery of her ancesters:

Fugees singer Hill, 37, was sentenced to three months' jail followed by three months' home confinement for failing to pay $500,000 to the taxman in the United States. [...]

During her trial, Hill claimed she is still forced to live under the pernicious economic hierarchy imposed by the slave trade.

She told the court: "I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them. I had an economic system imposed on me."

An economic system that imposed millions of dollars into her bank account. And as we all know, "The Man" only taxes black people...

Sandcrawler PSA: Wyoming Now Free from Rape Culture

The Other McCain:

The university campus in Laramie was gripped by fear last week:
“I want to hatef–k Meg Lanker Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it. I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican b–ch.”
The victim of this Facebook threat cited it as “an example of rape culture,” and who could doubt she was an object of twisted GOP lust?
A student at the University of Wyoming who claimed she was targeted for a Facebook rape threat because she “runs her liberal mouth all the time” faked the threat against herself, police say. Meg Lanker-Simons, 26, has been charged with interference with a police investigation by giving false statement. . . .
... we should be grateful that Ms. Lanker-Simons has finally decided to exercise her constitutional right to be silent.
Heh, that's some first rate snark right there.

I thought about surfing up some previous examples of faked liberal hate crimes, but then I realized I didn't really give a crap.

Update: Protein Wisdom

if that means the important discussion has to occur in a community where the sexual violence, being materially absent in large part, is therefore invented by attention-seeking feminist slobs bent on demonizing an entire political group for the purposes of having those important discussions, in which men (and conservatives, mostly) are invariably reduced to latent rapists in a perpetual state of internal conflict against their base desires to overwhelm and control women through sexual violence, well, then so be it!

Ben Affleck To Eat Like Peons For 5 Whole Days

Oh, the horror! Five days of pure hell to show solidarity with poor people!

ben_affleck_burger.jpg

The Oscar-winning director recently signed on to participate in the Global Poverty Project's Live Below the Line, a campaign that challenges average (and above-average) people to live on just $1.50 a day for five days. The initiative is meant to simulate what it's like for the 1.4 billion people worldwide who live in extreme poverty.

Eating on $1.50 per day is called a "diet," Ben.

Living on $1.50 a day would mean giving up your $17 million dollar mansion, your sports cars, your country club memberships, your healthcare plans, your home and auto insurance, your housekeepers, your lawn service, and everything else you paid for monthly, quarterly or yearly. Just because you don't physically handle more than $1.50 a day doesn't mean you are living off $1.50 per day.

I'm not sure how Google selects the image to accompanying the mini-bios. At first, I assumed they just used the first picture from the Google images on that person. Not in this case. Then I checked Wikipedia, since the mini-bio was from there. But this very unflattering image of Michelle Malkin isn't there.

The image Google is using appears to be a frame grab from a video and possibly photoshopped. It is from a blog whose owner apparently hates Malkin.

Why Google chose this particular image is beyond me. It's childish and malicious. But it also illustrates the mentality, the hatred, and intolerance of the left. Michelle must be doing something right.

Dozens Of Protesters Condemn Dorner For Acting As Judge, Jury, And Executioner

No, not really. They were protesting the LAPD for acting as judge, jury, and executioner for Dorner.

What Dorner did, in their minds, was totally justified. His victims did nothing to warrant even a charge, much less a fair trial and due process. But because they were a willing part of the system that Dorner hated, they got what they deserved. That's the leftist #OWS mentality for you.

From the AP via Gateway Pundit (emphasis mine):

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dozens of protesters rallied outside Los Angeles police headquarters Saturday in support of Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD officer and suspected killer of four who died after a shootout and fire this week at a mountain cabin following one of the biggest manhunts in recent memory.

Protesters told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/11Ndm6i ) they didn't support Dorner's deadly methods, but objected to police corruption and brutality, and believed Dorner's claims of racism and unfair treatment by the department. Many said they were angered by the conduct of the manhunt that led to Dorner's death and injuries to innocent bystanders who were mistaken for him.

Michael Nam, 30, who held a sign with a flaming tombstone and the inscription "RIP Habeas Corpus," said it was "pretty obvious" police had no intention of bringing Dorner in alive.

"They were the judge, the jury and the executioner," Nam said. "As an American citizen, you have the right to a trial and due process by law."

In the leftist utopia of these #Occutards, only those who support the regime are worthy of a trial and due process. Really, not even that. In their #Occutard world, leftwing domestic terrorists deserve nothing short of full exoneration.

Those who oppose deserve a fair public trial followed immediately by a fair public hanging.

In The Midst Of Chaos And Devastation, Hollywood Celebrities Party

Hurricane Sandy didn't stop Bette Midler's extravagant Halloween bash!

It was definitely a scary 48 hours for the inhabitants of New York.

But now that Hurricane Sandy has moved away from the East Coast, it's back to business for most New Yorkers, including Bette Midler.

The veteran actress and singer continued her life as usual and celebrated her yearly extravagant celebrity 'Hulaween' bash on Wednesday night in the storm-struck city.

Despite the fact that Lower Manhattan is still without power, Bette managed to find a venue uptown which did have electricity: The Waldorf Astoria hotel.

Al Gore was invited but couldn't make it. Global warming...

In Midler's defense, the party was a fundraiser for a greener New York. I guess they need it now more than ever. I just think it could have waited until the bodies of the hurricane victims got cold.

Shoqing!

As the Netroots turn.

While you know me as “@shoq,” many close friends have always known me as Matt Edelstein. For reasons I’ve published elsewhere, I’ve never confirmed or denied that name, nor anything else said about me...

I do not, contrary to popular belief, work for George Soros, nor live in my mother’s basement. She is elderly, and I moved here simply so one of her children would be closer to her.

See there you have it, Shoq does live with his mother, but not in the basement and for purely philanthropic reasons. Uh yeah.

Moving on, apparently Shoq has run into some virtual girl troubles. Here is her account of the end of their cyberlove.

The short version of this story is that I fell in love with someone who is incredibly charming, witty, and politically savvy. I adored him. I believed in him. I defended him. I shouldn’t have.
As you might recall Shoq aka Matt Edelstein is a lefty guerrilla marketing and netroots operator. His background can be researched at will at this link.

Those of you who follow the Aaron Worthing and Patterico vs. the bad boys of the Netroots will especially enjoy this.

Jessica, are you going to make any effort to talk to me at all? Or just leave me thinking that you just pushed me to this so you could walk away clean? Do you have any idea how much that hurts?

An Interview with an anti-Chomskyite

I hate Chomsky. The man is a fool who uses big words to disguise his shallow "theories".

Theories are based on the simple notion that a change in something (X) or some things (X1 + X2) causes a change in something else (Y). It's really not that difficult to understand.

However, Chomsky seems not to get this fundamental notion about the relationship between cause and affect.

Why? Because Chomsky, literally, blames America for everything bad that has happened in the last 100 years. Which is a problem because different affects (Y) cannot be attributed to the same cause (X). The same is true of the inverse: Different causes (X) cannot be attributed to the same affect (Y).

So, when America acts (X) it causes something bad (Y). When America doesn't act (X) it causes something bad (Y). Both cannot be simultaneously true.

Chomsky doesn't have theories, he has a world view. A simple one. America is bad, mmmmkay.

Michael J. Totten interviews Benjamin Kerstein about his new book Diary of an Anti-Chomskyite. Here's an excerpt:

I think people come to Chomsky and essentially worship him for precisely that reason. He allows them to feel justified in their refusal to think. They never have to ask themselves any difficult questions or provide any difficult answers. It’s a form of intellectual cowardice essentially, but I'm sure you can see its appeal....

In any event, blaming anything and everything bad that happens in the world on the United States has always been Chomsky's default position. So once he'd exhausted all other possibilities of escape, that's what he fell back on. And he'll keep doing it until his dying day. You will never get a mea culpa from him on anything, and certainly not on Cambodia, which is probably the biggest disgrace of his career.

It's a good read, check it out.

Pure Insanity

(NSFW!)

From The Huffinton Post (all emphasis mine):

Frantic wives searched for missing loved ones, President Jacob Zuma rushed home from a regional summit and some miners vowed a fight to the death Friday as police announced a shocking casualty toll from the previous day's shooting by officers of striking miners: 34 dead and 78 wounded.

Wives of miners at the Lonmin platinum mine northwest of Johannesburg took the place of dead and wounded husbands on Friday in staging a protest. But this time instead of asking for higher wages as the miners had done, the women demanded to know why police had opened fire Thursday with automatic rifles, pistols and shotguns on the strikers, many of whom had been armed with spears, machetes and clubs. Police said at a news conference that it was in self-defense, noting that strikers even possessed a pistol taken from a police officer they had beaten to death on Monday.

At least 10 other people were killed during the week-old strike, including two police officers battered to death by strikers and two mine security guards burned alive when strikers set their vehicle ablaze.

You can see in the video above, the armed miners did charge the police. The police had every right to defend themselves.

Some of you may be wondering why I used a liberal rag like The Huffington Post as a source. I surfed over there out of curiosity. I wanted to see how liberals are viewing this very clear instance of self defense by police.

That's where the real insanity begins. While a very few commenters justified the deadly forced used by police, a majority blamed corporate greed. Here's a sampling:

"This is just sickening. The world wide 1% are determined to take the most money to their graves and in doing so they are killing, destroying, maiming and forcing their will on everyone else."

"Now, that's how the 1% handles a strike!"

"This is massacre. The police chief has to be removed and those that guided this massacre detained and charged."

"If by removed...you mean tried, convicted, and executed then I agree."

"What they need to do now, to ensure that this never happens again, is to kill as many of the "police" that took part in this. They really do need to kill them. Kill them in their sleep."

"This is the Republicans vision for the future of the US. They want to eliminate unions so this happens instead. "

"Don't you just loooove the smell of guns and capitalism in the morning?"

"This was sick. The police should have had rubber bullets and more options other than lethal force. "

"Fascism.........................alive and well............."

"Shocking! Why would they do this? It benefits no one. Wreaks of Koch Brother tactics against Unions and workers rights unfortunately."

"Even if the miners did act violently, there was no reason for the police to use that amount of deadly force against them. There are MANY non lethal riot and crowd control weapons available to police"

Read more insanity.
