Quote Of The Day

Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D):

“I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

Democrat / Socialist attitude, explained in a single sentence.  Two concepts in one:

“All your child are belong to us.”

“We know better than you what your kids should be learning.”

Is it too soon to start the public hangings?

Simple Solution

From this Niall Ferguson article via Insty (thankee, squire) comes a gem:

Last week, the Rhodium Group’s Logan Wright estimated that there was enough empty property in China to house more than 90 million people.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?  Housing for 90 million dispossessed and poverty-stricken Afghans, Haitians, Venezuelans, Mexicans, Africans and Palestinians?

Could the answer be that simple?  Let’s hear the response from the ChiComs…

[exit, cackling like a maniac]

Misdirection

Every magician knows the trick:  to distract the audience’s attention, they do something with one hand while the other performs the manipulations necessary for the trick to work.  And thus it is with the current Democrat Establishment:

Rochelle Walensky, a Democratic Party activist who happens to direct the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, is promoting new COVID-19 measures at the instruction of her boss, Joe Biden. These measures would require masks even for vaccinated Americans entering public buildings and for students and teachers in public schools.
Although such impositions may displease readers of this journal, until now they have made sense politically. They are intended to distract us from the colossally stupid things the Democratic administration has unleashed on us. Focusing public attention on a health crisis caused by the Delta variant provides a diversion from everything that should be laid at Biden’s doorstep, such as the explosion of violent crimes in American cities, rising inflation, uncontrolled borders, and the takeover of the military and education by the intersectional Left. If the Democrats can get Americans to concentrate on their “crises,” such as the putative danger of a right-wing insurrection and a raging COVID pestilence, then voters might be distracted from other things.

Okay, we all know that there’s no danger, putative or otherwise, of a “right-wing insurrection” other than in the sick projections of the people talking about it, e.g. President Braindead and his equally-braindead minions in the Justice Department and its testicle tentacle offices such as the FBI and parts of the DHS.  (A couple hundred people acting like idiots in the hallowed halls [sic]  of Congress do not an insurrection make, as much as the Communists are claiming it as such.)

But as the article rightly puts it, we need to avoid the waving (albeit irritating) hand and concentrate on the really important stuff:  the horrifying mega-budget being pushed on us by the Leftists (and even some asshole Republicans too, for shame);  the flooding of our border defenses by illegal migrants and criminals;  the foul Critical Race Theory which is poisoning our kids and undermining our military, to say nothing of other less-important institutions such as our sports organizations, corporations and other parts of our everyday lives.  And most importantly, our First- and Second Amendment freedoms are being circumscribed and undermined on a daily basis by this same disgusting ruling establishment,

All the above being aided and abetted by the media, academia and politicians, of course.

Sadly, it’s a war of many fronts, but it is nevertheless a war that has to be fought every single day — because the Left is assaulting us with blatant lies and subterfuges every day and at every turn.

I’m not saying we should ignore annoyances such as mask mandates, of course.  But in ignoring, mocking or opposing them, we should not lose sight of the important issues which should take most of our effort and support.

Slip Of The Mask

This little excerpt of a Biden “speech” has been making the rounds.

As we all know, it’s eerily similar to a comment made by one J. Stalin:

“I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how;  but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.”  — (as noted by his longtime secretary Boris Bazhanov in his book “The Memoirs of Stalin’s Former Secretary” )

Note, by the way, that Stalin was talking about an intra-party vote rather than a popular one — but contrary to what Leftist history professors [some redundancy]  may say, that makes absolutely no difference because the principle is precisely the same.

There are actually two takes on President Braindead’s utterance:

  1. He went off script and unwittingly uttered exactly what he and his cronies think, or
  2. He was actually reading off the script that one of his staffers wrote for him, and the staffer wasn’t aware of the effect of those words.

Neither option makes Ol’ Fuckwit look good, nor his party;  but it’s not like we need any confirmation of their bastardy or his incoherence, do we?

Truth To Power

The Left is all about “telling truth to power”, until THEY are the ones in power, and somebody wants to tell them some truths.  Then it’s all about “hurtful speech”, “hate speech”, “fake news”, “racism” etc., all of which should be censored because, well, you all know why.

Here are a couple examples.  In Virginia:

The Loudoun County, Virginia, school board cut off a comment period and sicced police on residents Tuesday after they criticized leaders over transgender and race policies.
Loudoun Now reported Chairwoman Brenda Sheridan repeatedly demanded silence from the packed room as members of the public spoke in favor of or in opposition to Critical Race Theory lessons and special privileges for transgender students.
After attendees cheered the remarks of former state Sen. Dick Black (R), the board ordered the room cleared then fled.
A sheriff’s deputy then took the microphone to declare it an “unlawful assembly” and told everyone to get out or be subject to arrest for “trespassing.” When at least one man refused to leave, he was arrested, according to video posted by the news site.

Loudoun Now reported after the room was emptied, the board reconvened in closed session, unfettered by the opinions of taxpayers.

The crowd’s opinions did little to sway elected officials. “We will not back down from fighting for the rights of our students and continuing our focus on equity,” Sheridan told NBC 4. She demanded an end to “politically motivated antics.”

Of course, this so-called “Critical Race Theory” has nothing to do with politics, no sirree.

And elsewhere:

Critical race theory has drawn the ire of many, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, as states look to ban teaching its concepts in schools. Similar bills have been pre-filed in Kentucky for consideration in next year’s legislative session.
Tuesday marked the first time that a school board meeting in Kentucky’s largest school district has been disrupted because of opposition to critical race theory.
About half of the board left the meeting room as members of the audience began to shout and security officers confronted them. Some protesters were asked to leave while others left voluntarily.

See, when the Left indulges in noisy, confrontational demonstrations, it’s “the voice of the people”;  but when the demonstrations are against them, they call for security.

Then someone comes along — in this case, a Brit expat (!!!) who tells a Pennsylvania school board exactly what the meaning of free speech is , and then takes them to task for their censorship (cloaked under the maskirovka  of “equity” or some such bullshit).

This is how you deal with these assholes.  And it’s hardly surprising that an immigrant should beat them up like this, because it’s often the case that we ex-furriners know what’s at stake because we left that crap behind us — for the promise of freedom.
