Where’s The Love

Posted in Politics on February 20th, 2015

On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, speaking at a dinner for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at the 21 Club in Manhattan, Rudy Giuliani spoke the blunt truth about Obama and his feelings towards America.

I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.  He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.

– Rudy Giuliani

This, of course, bothered and offended both Obama and the Liberals and Progressives who support and enable him. The White House, mirroring their foreign policy strategy, rapidly responded with a Twitter #hastag, #ObamaLovesAmerica.

The simple truth is that Giuliani’s right in his concerns. Obama doesn’t love America. Nobody who seeks to fundamentally transform something or someone loves it or them; and nobody who consistently denigrates something or someone loves it or them. And this has been the tenor, words, and deeds of Obama’s entire campaign and attempted reign.

First It’s I Don’t Say

Posted in Politics, Society on February 18th, 2015

Two student organizations at Duke University, Think Before You Talk and Blue Devils United, have started a campaign to get fellow students to self-censor themselves so as to not offend certain protected minorities.

First It’s I Don’t Say

As you’ll note, each image includes the starting phrase, “I Don’t Say.” Yet, the campaign’s name is far more honest, “You don’t say.” That’s both telling and important because such cultural pogroms, when enacted in what now passes for academic environments invariable move from “I don’t” to “You don’t say…or else.” It never stays voluntary self-censorship or, at least is hasn’t so far.

First it will shift into peer pressure against- and ostracization of students who do not chose to self-censor their speech. This would, under the current (mis)definitions of the term, be considered “bullying” if it weren’t being applied against the normative majority.

Then it will expand to protests against any student organization or club that are deemed by the “faithful” to have a tendency towards nonconformity to the new speech code.

After that, it will expand further into protests against faculty and curricula that do not overtly support the politically correct “newspeak.”

Finally, it will move into the political arena and, as a result of protests, “studies,” and the like attempt to coerce the government into basing funding of universities upon their compliance with fostering the use and enforcement of the new speech codes.

To any who claim this is merely a hysterical “slippery slope” argument I say that there is no better predictor of the future than the past and the past, in the form of racial appeasement and affirmative action, has shown that this downward slope is the one that is followed in what passes for academia in the US.

First it’s “I don’t say.” Then it’s “You don’t say…or else.”

Obama On Williams

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on February 13th, 2015

Obama on Bryan Williams
Obama: Brian Williams Should Leave NBC

Just kidding! Obama would never say such a thing about Brian Williams. Oh, not because the boy has any problems with the hypocrisy required to complain the lies of anyone else. It’s that Obama wouldn’t turn on one of his biggest supporters and sycophants.
