Lawless Liberal Protest

Posted in Politics on January 31st, 2011

Out of The Diseased Mouths of Liberals Spews Filth and TeasonLiberals and their “lamestream” media outlets make a habit of decrying the American patriots of the Tea Party movement as violent. The anti-American filth that spews from their jabbering maws like a “social disease” is most often aimed at mendaciously painting we, the People of America as lawless savages.

Yet during the course of 3000+ Tea Party protests nationwide since Trevor Leach’s first gathering on January 24, 2009 there have been no violence caused by the protesters and no arrests of those protesters.

The same cannot be said for Liberal protests.

Violence, property damage, and arrests are commonplace events at at any protest staged by Liberals, Progressives, or their minority tenants. Details of the Leftists’ latest criminal gathering from Fire Dog Lake:

Twenty-five protesters were arrested in Rancho Mirage, California today, at a protest in front of the Rancho Las Palmas resort, site of the “Billionaire’s Caucus,” an annual meeting put on by the Koch Brothers and other corporate entities and conservative movement operators.

Riverside Sheriff’s deputy Melissa Nieburger said that the sheriff’s department did have contacts with protest organizers, which included the California Courage Campaign, CREDO, MoveOn.org, 350.org, the California Nurses Association, United Domestic Workers of America and the main sponsor, the good-government group Common Cause, prior to the event, and that they were aware that some protesters would seek to be arrested for trespassing. She would not guarantee that all 25 who were arrested were part of that coordinated operation. The police, who wore riot gear, batons and helmets, did put the arrested into plastic handcuffs. Nieburger described them as “passive restraints.” They were being processed at press time, and Nieburger would not say whether they would be released or would spend the night at the jail in Indio.

Nieburger estimated between 800 and 1,000 activists at the “Uncloak the Kochs” event. Event organizers chartered buses from several locations around Southern California and claimed 1,500 people signed up for those buses, on top of any local activists who attended. It appeared from the ground that well over 1,000 protesters were there.

These enemies of America and American values can jabber whatever nonsensical lies that they wish to. It doesn’t change the well-known facts that it is they who have the long record of violence and lawlessness and they who seek to be arrested and incarcerated either for the sake of the photo-op or to gain “cred” among their sort.

It’s Us or Them, Obama

Posted in Politics on January 29th, 2011

Obama Gump - Stupid Is As Stupid DoesWhether Americans; our oikophobic domestic enemies, the Liberals, Progressives, and the minority tenants; or the world at large likes it or not, the decision as to how America responds, both openly and covertly, to the insurgency in Tunisia and Egypt is in the hands of President Obama. For better or worse, he will be the one to decide upon and set the tone for America’s foreign policy in this matter.

There are only two choices before him. He can choose to support and further America’s interests or he can choose to support and further the perceived interests of the popular insurrection in Egypt and Tunisia. He cannot do both because those two sets of interests are in direct conflict with each other.

America’s interests are for stability in the region, irrespective of how that stability is maintained. Unrest, turmoil, chaos, and anarchy in North Africa and the Middle-East will be the near- and mid-term effects of these insurgencies and are very much not in our nation’s interests, especially since Islamists will likely rise to power in the wake of these revolts.

The perceived interests of the rebels, such as we can discern with limited access, is overthrowing regimes that they find economically dysfunctional, oppressive, and too fond of America and the West.

That present Obama with a stark binary choice. He can have America back the current regimes in the region despite their flaws and maintain the stability that America requires or he can ave America back the popular revolts despite their strong anti-American sentiments, the chaos they will bring, and the probability that these nations will become even more Islamist in outlook.

Or Obama can choose not to choose in any meaningful way, as he did concerning the attempted Iranian revolution in the wake of Khameni’s and Ahmadinejad’s theft of Iran’s election in 2010.

Of course, just as in the case of the Green Revolution last year, that sort of non-response will only lead to all sides and our titular Western allies, distrusting and disliking America even more than they do now.

Sadly for America it is this non-choice that I expect Obama to make regarding the Tunisian and Egyptian revolts. It would show the aloofness, born of inexperience, inability, and insecurity, that Obama has become so swiftly become infamous for.

Liberals’ Oikophobia

Posted in Politics, Society on January 28th, 2011

Liberals and Progressives within America’s borders have long suffered from oikophobia, a term coined by modern British philosopher Roger Scruton to describe those that are possessed of, “the disposition, in any conflict, to side with ‘them’ against ‘us’, and the felt need to denigrate the customs, culture and institutions that are identifiably ‘ours.'”

No adequate word exists for this attitude, though its symptoms are instantly recognised: namely, the disposition, in any conflict, to side with ‘them’ against ‘us’, and the felt need to denigrate the customs, culture and institutions that are identifiably ‘ours’. Being the opposite of xenophobia I propose to call this state of mind oikophobia, by which I mean (stretching the Greek a little) the repudiation of inheritance and home.

— Roger Scruton
England & the Need for Nations

One of the things that truly spotlights their oikophobia is the dichotomy inherent in their attitudes towards the current chaos in the Muslim World and America’s Tea Party.

2011 Muslim Revolts

Liberals endorse, support, and laud the insurrectionists in Tunisia and Egypt who have turned to violent means to overthrow their governments due to economic problems, loss or lack of personal liberties, and those governments being seen as having ceded too much power to foreign interests, mostly America and the nations of the Civilized World.

2010 Tea Party Protest

Conversely, Liberals utterly condemn and vilify the Tea Party Patriots who have peacefully protested against America’s government due to economic problems, loss or lack of personal liberties, and that government being seen as having ceded too much power to foreign interests, namely the United Nations.

Yes, the Left’s conflicting views of these two disparate groups who have protested for very similar reasons points up their oikophobia with a clear and harsh light for all Americans to see.
