The left’s problem with Free Speech

The progressive left has never been a fan of the whole “Freedom of Speech” thing.  Oh, they sing it’s praises as long as they are the ones doing the talking, but as soon as anybody else tries to express an opinion they disagree with, it’s all “hate speech”, or not “politically correct”, or the current favorite, “racist.”  It’s even worse on what should be bastions of free expression, college campuses.  There they have “Speech Codes”, and “Free Speech Zones.”  Neither of which seem to apply to anyone who is spouting the far left’s extremist agenda.


Catching up

Catching up on a bunch of stuff that caught my eye on the Interwebs.

Poll data shows that liberals are less patriotic.  No surprise here.

In Obamerica, the DHS considers Americans who believe in the civil rights of the individual more dangerous than Islamofascists that actually kill Americans.

RESEARCHER REAFFIRMS: AT LEAST 760,000 DEFENSIVE GUN USES A YEAR.  “Gun Control” fanatics are in denial of the settled science.

The Obama  White House Says They Will Not Release IRS Documents On Tea Party Targeting…   Y’all know that the whole “most transparent administration ever” thing was just another lie Obama told to get the useful idiots to vote for him.  This is just another example of his flipping off the American people.

What is the difference between fascism and progressive ideology? If you don’t know the answer to this, you can probably blame a public school teacher who identifies as a progressive.  Both “are very hostile to individualism, especially in the field of economics.”

NPR joins the “War on Women”

I caught a bit of the NPR Sunday Quiz/Talk show today.    One of the hosts was mocking one of the Republican presidential candidates’ comment about having a “rotating First Lady” if elected.  The candidate in question is unmarried.

The so-called “Liberal”, probably a “Progressive”,  democrat hosting the show immediately asked if the rotation would be like a rotisserie chicken or a slab of beef on a rotating pedestal, so “slices of First Lady” could be carved off as needed.

It is not surprising that the leftist first inclination was to equate a woman to a piece of meat.  As I have pointed out before, if you want to know what the extremist left is doing, just look to what they are accusing their enemies of.  Case in point, the alleged “War on Women” they accuse anybody to the right of Chairman Mao of conducting.

In addition to this “progressive” democrat doing what fascists do, dehumanize their foes, you can add the following to the extreme far left’s “War on Women.”

Feel free to add to the list.  There are plenty more examples.

“Liberal racism is nothing new, of course — in fact, it’s perfectly normal. Drive around white Los Angeles all day and you will rarely, if ever, see a black face, and the only Mexicans you’ll encounter will be maids and gardeners. “Diversity,” it seems, is for other people”

Double shot QotD!

“‘Hate speech’ is a made-up term used to justify censorship. It’s an un-American idea, used by anti-American people. It’s a marker for fascism.” — Glenn Reynolds

“I think the notion that we should treat pole dancing like constitutionally protected free speech while we try to ban actual political speech is just one of the loopiest manifestations of our popular confusion over the First Amendment.” — Jonah Goldberg

Both of these statements refer to what I have often said.  The progressive left really doesn’t like the concept of Free Speech.  They want to make any speech they disagree with illegal.  They use Orwell’s 1984 as a training manual, instead of the warning it was meant to be.

Happy Lenin’s Birthday!

Yup, it’s time for the annual Lenin’s Birthday post!

For those of you coming in late to the party, Earth Day” is on Lenin’s Birthday.  Not a coincidence, given that the “founder” of Earth Day was much more a “Watermelon” than an actual environmentalist. Watermelon: Thin layer of green of the outside, red to the core.

Let’s review the predictions from the very first so called “Earth Day” back in 1970.

“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” — George Wald, Harvard Biologist

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” — Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” — Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” — Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” — Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….” — Life Magazine, January 1970

“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.” — Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

“Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.” — Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

Ok, Ehrlich was sorta right on this, if you restrict his predictions to modern Communist China, where they are showing the typical communist/socialist contempt for the environment.

“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’” — Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

Now we get to my personal favorite, although probably not Al Gore‘s…
“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years,” he declared. “If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” — Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

2014 Update: Wired Magazine publishes this article: Renewables Aren’t Enough. Clean Coal Is the Future

It wouldn’t be Lenin’s Birthday with out this clip of the late George Carlin discussing “Saving the Planet.”

Round Up Post

First off is a case of far left extremist (in this case a “social justice warrior”) putting up “Whites Only” stickers around Austin, TX.  He did to show how conservatives are “racists” and stuff.  All too often, cases of “hate crimes” like this are perpetrated by “progressives” in order to make reality match their extremist agenda.   HT to Leslie Bates for this one.

Next, the “most transparent administration ever” has announced that the IRS isn’t going to release any documents concerning their well documented targeting of conservative political groups.  In Obamamerica, the Freedom of Speech protections of the First Amendment only applies to speech our Dear Leader approves of.

The National Review points out that the Obama administration and Congressional democrats  “are practically praying for a Christian terrorist.”   They keep turning up to be Muslims though…

Culture of Corruption

As I’ve pointed out before, if you want to know what the left is up to, just observe what they accuse those they perceive as foes of.

Case in the point, the “Culture of Corruption” charge they leveled against the Republicans.

Let’s review how that actually works

Former New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was indicted Thursday on three charges after his arrest in a federal bribery case.

The indictment was returned in Manhattan federal court, where he appeared briefly last month when he was freed on bail just a day after sharing the stage with Gov. Andrew Cuomo during his State of the State address.

Then there is the DNC spokesliar, Debbie Wasserman Schultz.  Politico reports that her “office offered to change her position on medical marijuana if a major Florida donor recanted his withering criticism of her…”

A leftist gets mugged by reality

I’ve often said that reality is not a strong point of the left.  Their narrative is much more important to them than actual facts.

This refusal to accept reality can produce painful results.  Today’s example (by way of Moe Lane & the Instapundit)

tweet of the day


It was pointed out, repeatedly, by people who actually read the so-called “Affordable Care Act”, that it was a disaster waiting to happen.  People were going to lose coverage, prices would go up, and access to actual affordable health care would decline.

Rather than face these facts that inconveniently disagreed with their socialist narrative, the collective left called those who actually read the bill, “racists,” which was certainly easier than reading the bill for themselves.

Now, not only does this leftist idiot not have health care coverage, she is going to get fined by the government she helped to elect, for not having it.  In addition, she inflicted this disaster of a law on millions of Americans who didn’t want it.

Dr. Charles Krauthammer makes the following astute observation:

“To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil.”

Example: Republican line: “Your Obama for President bumper sticker might as well say ‘I’m with Stupid.'”

Democrat article: Republicans are committing treason.

Of course the democrat op-ed is based on multiple false assumptions.  Spotting them is left as an exercise to the reader.

Here is a hint.  His grasp of economics is weak.
