Monday Open Thread

Hands Up, Don’t Shoot – its entered the popular mind. Another great example of just how well the Big Lie works.

Liberal stupidity continues – Minnesota plans to eliminate gender gender distinctions in sports…leading to either a 200 lb boy tackling a 90 lb girl, or the banning of anyone weighing more than 90 lbs playing football…or a ban on football (which would probably be a liberal goal these days).

Apparently, Dear Leader is not to be offended – be nice if next time there’s a GOP President that the Presidential kids are actually off limits.

How about we just leave Ferguson burned down? We can call it the Barack H Obama memorial ruin.

    What a sad commentary on our society that three fourths of the way through our first black president’s term a growing number of blacks are calling for a race war, and an equally growing number of whites are responding, “bring it on”. Instead of being the first post-racial president, Obama’s legacy is going to be the first post-American president. Hope and change indeed.

      These people are playing with fire and they don’t understand what they are doing. Its an odd thing – use the language of civil war long enough, and you might get one.

    I am numbed at how far our country has fallen culturally and economically. This morning I read that the debt has now surpassed $18 trillion, and despite record tax revenues this year in 2014, the government is still running deficits and stifling growth through regulations. Culturally, the racial divide is as bad as I can ever remember, spurred on by the president, the AG, Al Sharpton, the media and too many others who refuse to accept fact and personal responsibility and instead perpetuate lies. No respectable President would ever give the time of day to someone like Sharpton, but then again Obama has zero credibility anymore.

    And finally, showing his complete disdain for much of America, Obama has vowed to shut down the government if the new GOP congress does not acquiesce to his executive orders. He continues to tear apart this country and despite wholesale repudiation of his agenda this last election, he now plans to hit the accelerator in his final two years.

      Old-style racism was based on the impression that because black people in this country were originally slaves, for the most part, and usually poor and uneducated, it was easy for some to think that this defined them as less intelligent and less motivated.

      The new, Obama/Sharpton/Holder style of racism is far more malignant, and far more damaging, with far greater scope and depth, because it is callously fomenting racial HATRED and condoning race-based violence, while encouraging black people who are no longer slaves, who now have access to education and opportunity, to act like primitive savages.

        I also believe there is a malicious intent behind the racist charges leveled by people like Sharpton and Holder. They and their ilk have zero desire to heal the wounds of this country. Instead they continue to pick at the wound and keep the scar open to secure their power and income source.

      • Amazona December 7, 2014 / 5:26 pm

        This intent is why I used the term “malignant”. These people are callously throwing their own people under the bus, encouraging them to escalate their grievances into open warfare on whites, validating the most despicable racist beliefs, and working to turn the nation against black people by goading them into acts of depravity, stupidity and violence.

        It is truly amazing to see so many black people turning their backs on MLK and his message, to follow demagogues like Sharpton and Holder and, yes, Obama into self destruction.

        And taking a queue from Rahm Emanuel “never let a crisis go to waste” – The President has been interviewed on BET. Quote:

        “This is something that’s deeply rooted in our society, deeply rooted in our history. But the two things that will allow us to solve it: Number one: Is the understanding that we have made progress and so it’s important to recognize that as painful as these instances are, we can’t equate what’s happening now with what was happening 50 years ago.

        Regardless of the fact that neither the Ferguson or NY case had anything to do with racism, the POTUS has seized the opportunity to tell Americans how “deeply rooted” this problem is. And so far his answer is to condemn grand juries and police forces rather than speak to the “deeply rooted” familial and cultural problems of the black community, or the governments decades long irresponsible and empty promises.

        And not to be outdone, Obama’s biggest “nurturing” fan says that the problem with immigration is that there are just too many white people:

        the average House Republican district is 75% white.” Moderator Chuck Todd chimed in his agreement: “That’s the problem.”

      • M. Noonan December 9, 2014 / 12:52 am

        It took 50 years of relentless propaganda to get here and it will take a long while to get out of it. On the other hand, I think we all know black people who understand the truth of the matter. Things will get better. And we must admit that a very large number of other ethnic groups are just as warped in their worldview…look what some liberals are saying re: the UVA story, “we still must believe it, even if its not true, because our Narrative trumps all”.

      • Cluster December 9, 2014 / 8:28 am

        That fits hand in glove with what many liberal media people have said in the past and that is that writing with a bias is important. They see themselves as not “objective journalists” but as people who have the platform to shape society along their agenda line. And that of course dove tails with Gruber’s comment about the “stupidity of Americans”. They truly believe that they are smarter, more humane, and more in tune with what Americans need and therefore the truth is relative and that is what makes them so dangerous. There is no difference between that line of thinking, and that of any other fascist or communist movement.

    “…he now plans to hit the accelerator in his final two years.”

    Well, the intelligent half of the country knew this would happen, even before his whispered message to Putin that after the election he could be “more flexible”. He told us his goal was to fundamentally transform America and a large number of ignorant people gave him the means to do so.

    Do not blame Obama. That is like blaming a snake for biting you. Blame those are really responsible—–Obama voters.

    “Irony” doesn’t begin to cover it.

    Despite its history of pioneering widespread abortions in black communities, Planned Parenthood joined the #BlackLivesMatter Twitter protest Monday afternoon, tweeting, “We are joining #Ferguson organizers and protesters in DC today — standing in solidarity with you! #HandsUpWalkOut #BlackLivesMatter”

    Now Planned Parenthood has joined the fray with this cruelly ironic tweet. In New York City in 2012, more abortions were performed on black women than black children were born.

    At the end of the day, this is the face of the Democrat Party.

    • Cluster December 2, 2014 / 8:35 pm

      Like I said, I am numbed to the deterioration of morals and integrity in this country. When we have a President that blatantly lies are we surprised at voter fraud? I agree with Amazona to a certain extent, but have a hard time holding “bone deep stupid” people accountable for their actions when they are purposefully lied to and manipulated by people who should know better. Take for example many of the protesting people in Ferguson. Most of them are dangerously stupid people, including the parents, and are criminally manipulated by people like Sharpton and Holder. I am afraid we are witnessing a systemic collapse of civility as a result of decades of lies and manipulation on behalf of the liberal wing of the Democratic party and generational dependence on government.

        It is pretty bad – I’ve taken to a lot of prayer over it, convinced that in the end, only God can move our hearts in the right direction…but still willing to do my small bit.

    • M. Noonan December 3, 2014 / 1:30 am

      On the plus side, Democrat antics might make immigration, terrorism and law and order major 2016 campaign issues…

    Another excellent analysis of the events in Ferguson and their broader relationship to society as a whole.

    From the most transparent administration…. oh wait!

    “Less than a week after ’fessing up that it found some 2,500 documents potentially showing that the IRS shared taxpayer returns with the White House, the OBAME ADMINISTRATION HAS REVERSED COURSE AND WON’T RELEASE the trove to a group suing for access.” (emphasis mine)

    As the mindless drones say… “there is nothing to this”, “…a witch hunt…”, “…no scandal…”, “no credible evidence…” on and on ad nauseum – dumbed down talking points go a long way with these useful idiots.

    Another prominent Democrat and co-sponsor has come out and said ObamaCare was a mistake. And he won’t be the last. The goal of ObamaCare was always a massive transfer of wealth, but the unintended consequence, which Democrats always seem to be unable to foresee, is that the transfer is going from the middle class to the poor, not from the “RICH” to the poor. OOPSIE! So when Democrats say they are for protecting the middle class — THEY’RE NOT! And the middle class is finally wising up to that fact.

      I think the ACA will go down as the most politicized, the least read, the least understood, the most damaging, and the most divisive piece of legislation to ever have been signed into law, if it isn’t already. And never forget this bill was forced on a skeptical populace by Progressive Democrats who were convinced that they were the smartest people in the room and knew what was best for the unwashed masses. The exact scenario that our Founding Fathers feared.

      • Amazona December 7, 2014 / 11:10 am

        Well, we just saw a Republican elected as the new Senator from Louisiana, due in great part to the support of Obamacare by his opponent. The repudiation of the bizarrely named Affordable Care Act, which is not affordable and has nothing to do with care, is pretty clear.

        I was visiting with our health insurance people a few weeks ago and we were talking about the demands and limitations and general stupidity of the Act and its effect on people, and when I said it might be repealed her response was that it was too deeply imbedded now to be repealed. I said that it managed to dismantle a health care system that had been in place for decades, within a couple of years, so I didn’t see why it couldn’t just be erased so people could go back to where they were before and let the states deal with specific problems, as they had been for years.

        Colorado, for example, had a long-standing state program which guaranteed insurance coverage for those who had been turned down by other insurers.

        I think the importation of a few million more users of the ACA, on our dime, will make it easier to wipe the slate clean and start over. What bothers me is that now the concept of the feds running health care seems to have imbedded itself in even the conservative political mind, so the conversation tends to talk about replacing it instead of finding another way to deal with the few who needed help.
