Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Punch back twice as hard

It gets results.

Republican Greg Gianforte won Thursday’s special election for the U.S. House in Montana, defeating Democratic challenger Rob Quist despite being charged with misdemeanor assault the day before.

The election results — with Gianforte winning over 50% of the vote and leading by a seven-point margin — were a major blow to Democrats’ anti-Trump efforts, and to the media’s expectations, after Gianforte had allegedly “body-slammed” a reporter before his final campaign event on Wednesday.

Montanans are “sending a wake-up call to the Washington D.C. establishment,” Gianforte told a jubilant crowd outside his campaign headquarters, after multiple outlets called the race.

That they are. The DC sewer rats, however, are desperately slapping the snooze button:

GOP strategist Rick Wilson lamented this “Trump effect.”

“This Gianforte assault story is one of those moments where the cultural collapse of the GOP into the Trump Troll Party is captured,” Wilson tweeted. He attacked those who might defend “someone assaulting a reporter because ‘duh lubrul media lies.'”

Wilson asked, “Are you so past the rule of law, and lack so much confidence in your ideas that this is where you take political satisfaction? Because if this is where you are, you’re not a party; you’re a mob. If this is where you are, you’re not a conservative; you’re trash.”

Get bent, loser. You and the rest of the Vichy Republicans are long past your sell-by date.

The GOP strategist concluded by saying, “If you’re a Republican or conservative defending this, please stop identifying yourself as either.”

Happy to, fuckface. In fact, a lot of us are way, way ahead of you on that. Now you just trot on off and joyously wag your little tail for your Democrat Socialist masters, and collect your pat on the head for doing their bidding like you were told.

While many Republicans might side with Wilson on this, Trump supporters are sick of the GOP playing by “politically correct” rules. They might defend Gianforte — and be willing to send him extra money after the assault — because he is not afraid to fight back.


This particular Twitter user might merely be trolling, but his message seems to fit this mentality. “I just voted for Greg Gianforte because our founding fathers used to duel to the death over arguments and they weren’t deemed ‘unfit,'” a user named (Zombie_Cartman) who identified himself as “a 35 year old former Marine/full time gamer/ninja/comedian” tweeted.

Again: bingo. Shout it from the rooftops: we’re fed up. We’re fed up with liberal propagandists masquerading as honest journalists harassing us, slandering us, lying about us, and acting as if they have a God-granted right to be allowed to get away with it all. And we’re also fed up with no-ball phony “conservatives” who talk a great fight but won’t lift a finger to stop the destruction of our nation, for whom the best time to mount an effective defense is always and forever “next time.”

Those useless pissant Republicans who never saw an American value or ideal they were willing to vigorously, forcefully protect—who expect us all to just back and humbly submit to being made punching bags by the Left while being scolded for our “incivility” by the fucking Republican scum who have been selling us down the river for decades now—really need to lay off that snooze button. Failing that, they need to just hide and watch while those who are serious about making America great again roll up their sleeves, ball their fists, and get to work.


Another great VICTORY in the not-quite-a-war against random man-caused disasters which have nothing whatsoever to do with Islam!

We’re all MANCHESTER “STRONG”!™ now. This week. In another two or three weeks, it’ll be someplace else. But after we hold hands, sing a John Lennon song, light some candles, and have ourselves yet another good cry, we’ll all feel a whole lot better about our weak-willed cowardice. To the latest dead: so sorry, but your deaths will go unavenged, and we won’t be doing a single damned thing to lend them at least some meaning by seeing to it that the animals who slaughtered you suffer in full measure for their atrocities and will thereby be persuaded that it might be best to leave us the hell alone.

And now back to telling ourselves how STRONG!™ and invincible we all are; how resolute, how determined; and how DIVERSITY IS OUR STRENGTH and WE STAND TOGETHER and YOU WILL NEVER DIVIDE US and all the rest of that meaningless, pathetic folderol. Strong hint to the mewling kittens of the enfeebled West: if you’re always the ones crying, you assuredly are NOT winning.



What desperation looks like

It’s wafting off them like a bad, bad funk.

The Democrats and their accomplices in the Republican Party have peddled the vast left-wing conspiracy that the president and Vladimir Putin “colluded” with one another in the months leading up to Election Day since late last summer.

Though I have already spilled exponentially more ink on this topic than it deserves, a few more syllables can’t hurt.  

Julian Assange insists that there was no “hacking” of DNC emails, that a Democratic Party insider (undoubtedly a discontented Bernie Sanders supporter) leaked them. Nevertheless, even assuming, for argument’s sake, that Russians are guilty on this score, the Russophobic war mongers in the Democrat and Republican parties want for us to think that by way of arranging for Wikileaks to make public their contents, Putin enabled Trump to win 30 of 50 states and more than 2,600 of America’s 3,100 counties—including 220 or so counties that voted for Obama in 2012.  

If only Putin hadn’t intervened, Clinton would be president right now and Trump would have lost by the 12 points or so that all of the “experts,” as recently as days before Election Day, assured us would be the outcome.

The vast left-wing conspiracists also want for us to overlook that if their insinuations are correct, this convicts Barack Obama and his party of gross incompetence. Given their expressions of certitude until the 11th hour that Clinton would clean Trump’s clock, they clearly had no clue that a hostile foreign power was “undermining” the integrity of our electoral process right under their collective nose.

How, on their watch, was Putin able to sabotage their electoral prospects and subvert the votes of the nearly 60 million or so Deplorables who, according to the (il)logic of the conspiracy theory, would otherwise have voted for Clinton?

Yet, somehow, Putin and the buffoon “colluded” so as to make all of this happen.

Second, even the most toxic among Trump’s nemeses, like the contemptible Maxine Waters, acknowledges that, to date, there is zero evidence of any “collusion” between the President and Putin.

If a despicable moron like Maxine Waters—who really ought to be cleaning hotel rooms somewhere or running a drive-thru window, although she’d barely be qualified to do even that—can’t even make your case for you, well, you ain’t got much of a case.

Ahh, but does it get even better, you ask? See for yourself:

And this brings us to our final point: Much more plausible than the conspiracy that Putin “colluded” with Trump is the theory that Putin and Obama had been colluding for years.

And he makes a damned fine case for that, too, although you may find his closer somewhat surprising. I’d submit that rather than colluding with Putin, Obama was played like a cheap fiddle by him instead. He had Putin run rings around his stupid, arrogant ass in the exact same way Trump is now running rings around his Democrat Socialist colleagues and their Republicrat co-conspirators. He was in over his empty head with Putin, and Putin was no doubt laughing at him the whole while he was in office, just as most every other world leader was…and just as we’re laughing at them now.

Either way, this is a truly enjoyable piece, there’s plenty more of it, and you’ll be glad you read every word.


Comey chaos

If this keeps up, I’m going to need to dig out the ol’ thesaurus to find an alternative to the word “dementia,” because we’re all going to be sick of that one.

Comey’s not going to charge Hillary? What a stand-up guy! The very model of a dedicated public servant!

Comey’s re-opened the Hillary investigation? What a partisan hack! He’s just thrown the election to Trump! This is literally a police state!

Comey’s investigating Trump’s ties to Russia? Thank God! This career civil servant is all that stands between us and that fascist dictator!

Comey’s fingering Huma Abedin for forwarding emails to Carlos Danger? God, this Trump stooge won’t let up, will he?

Trump’s fired Comey? How dare he? This is a crisis for the integrity of our institutions…

As it turns out, he misspoke somewhat on the matter of Huma Abedin sending classified emails to her spambot penis of a hubby to print out during breaks from sexting middle-schoolers. Which is how we arrive at the brain-exploding scenario of Trump firing Comey for being unfair to Hillary. Boy, that Putin is always nine chess moves ahead, isn’t he?

He IS good, isn’t he? I mean, he must be: he has Trump in his back pocket, our national elections under his complete control, and driven the America-hating Left into paroxysms of patriotic fervor for the first time since…well, ever. That’s a record of accomplishment anybody might envy.



Well, that’s it. They’ve finally convinced me, and I’m done with Trump. He has to go; this is a bridge too far for even me.

The waiters know well Trump’s personal preferences. As he settles down, they bring him a Diet Coke, while the rest of us are served water, with the Vice President sitting at one end of the table. With the salad course, Trump is served what appears to be Thousand Island dressing instead of the creamy vinaigrette for his guests. When the chicken arrives, he is the only one given an extra dish of sauce. At the dessert course, he gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the single scoop for everyone else. The tastes of Pence are also tended to. Instead of the pie, he gets a fruit plate.

Follows, a truly pathetic freak-out which not only includes the usual deranged and butt-hurt liberal sore losers, but also the neo-“conservative” likes of David Frum and the execrable Jennifer Rubin, who characterizes Trump based on this latest hairball yakked up by the Insane Left as “a man unable to restrain his urges.” I’ll let Bre Payton handle the obvious response to such dementia:

This brings me to the obvious question: WHO CARES? Who cares if the president’s waitstaff are able to anticipate his preferences and have a Diet Coke or a second scoop of ice cream ready? That’s called good customer service! The White House waitstaff serve Trump nearly every day, so of course they know what kind of dressing he likes on his salad or what his beverage of choice is. And why are we all assuming that the other dinner guests couldn’t just ask for another scoop of ice cream if they wanted it? I have a hard time imagining the White House kitchen staff denying someone more dessert.

But that’s not how the inside-the-Beltway folk see it.

Well, naturally not. They’re incapable of seeing anything other than a curtain of purest blood-red when it comes to anything Trump says, does, or attempts.

And that’s the beauty of it, see. He’s got the Beltway cattle in full stampede now, and in true bovine fashion they’re lowing and bawling in confusion and fear as they run they know not where just as hard and fast as their spindly legs will carry them. May their hysteria continue to blind them to the reality that they’re being carefully driven…right off a cliff.

May they continue to find themselves unable to contain their raving madness, and may the sane population see it unleashed in all its repellent pathos. And may that stupid, ignorant, stupid, incompetent, stupidstupidSTUPID swine Trump continue to run rings around their asses, until their options are reduced, literally, to: A) shit, or B) go blind.

Two scoops of ice cream, instead of just one. My God, it’s like Watergate, or the Holocaust, or something. Clearly, the man is unfit to be President.

Heh. I’ll say it again: Most. Fun. Presidency. EVER.

Weaponized Empathy


You see this sort of smug, superior grin in the face of an SJW. But behind it is utter madness. These are broken people, whose actions are no longer rational in any sense. Some can only gain satisfaction from submission, from emotional and intellectual (and sometimes physical) masochism and self-flagellation. Some can’t even gain it from that, anymore. Some have surrendered completely to animus possession. These people are no longer free-thinking individuals, capable of making decisions. They are, rather, individuals who have completely lost touch with reality. Unable to cope with the weight of the world, they seek to unload it on others. It’s your fault, not theirs. Nothing is their fault, they are perfect, you are to blame for everything.

Underneath it all, of course, they hate themselves. This has given rise to people who say things like “I won’t have children, because they would be white.” Or other folks, like Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King, who desperately wish to be black, perhaps because they could escape the weight of the world by identifying with the oppressed instead of the oppressor.

Look, I’m fond of saying that I’m just a regular guy. And there’s a reason for that. There are some very strong-willed, intelligent people out there who can resist this agitprop and social pressure without much effort. For some, it is easy to shrug it off and pay no mind to it. But that’s not most folks. Marxists are great psychological manipulators. It is their one great talent, and it is enough that it nearly makes up for all their other intellectual shortcomings, which are legion. Most folks are vulnerable, at some level.

And resisting psychological manipulation is not easy for most people. It’s not enough to just say “don’t be brainwashed.” Folks need to know how the brainwashing works, how it can be identified and resisted, how you can avoid going down the path that leads to people who can’t even figure out what gender they want to be, or what ethnicity they are, or what pronoun they feel like using today. These are people who can’t even say “hey man, how’s it going” without being triggered. They are constantly on the look out for the most minor of violations against the political narrative, their entire mind, body, and soul hijacked to serve political figures who care nothing for them (indeed, who probably laugh at their gullibility behind closed doors).

You owe them nothing. You aren’t responsible for the crimes of the world, except those in which you have directly and willingly participated. Anyone, and I do mean anyone who says otherwise is attempting to manipulate you, and place chains upon you. It is, often times, difficult to resist the allure of just giving up the fight. It’s so much easier to throw in the towel, and jump when someone else tells you to. When damn near everyone accuses you of something, to just say “yes, I’m guilty.”

Oh, I dunno. I find it one hell of a lot easier to just say, “FUCK you; go piss up a rope, leave me the fuck alone” and get on with my day, myself—easier, and much more satisfying, too. But I’m old and irascible, and don’t find myself susceptible to much in the way of peer pressure these days, especially when it’s wielded by snot-nose little punk-asses who ain’t been the places I’ve been, seen the things I’ve seen, and done the things I’ve done. So maybe it’s just me.

“Psychological manipulation,” is it? Sheeeeeit. Go ahead and try, cupcakes; snivel, and piss, and moan, and bitch, and riot in the streets all you like. Call us Nazis, call us bigots, call us misogynists, call us homophobes, call us ignorant Neanderthals. Call us whatever you like. Let’s see what it gets ya from people like me in the end. We’ve already heard it; we remain unmoved, solidly what we are, and always were.

Go peddle your singular dorm-room genius someplace else; there ain’t no market for it here anymore. We neither seek nor give the first soggy shit about your approval. Nor do we give a tinker’s damn what you may think of us, publicly or privately, now or forever. Denounce us all you like; rail against the people who pay your bills, pave your roads, provide your food, and make sure the lights come on when you flick the switch till you’re full as a tick from gorging on your own pointless, childish bile.

Your whole problem begins and ends with this: there are way more of us than you ever imagined in your worst nightmares. And we’re all done rolling over for the likes of you.

We ain’t shutting up, we ain’t giving up, and we damned sure ain’t acknowledging your spurious superiority. You really think you want a fight? SERIOUSLY? With those of us who own all the guns, and don’t run shrieking in shock and horror at the very concept of a projectile weapon, or any sort of raw aggression at all?

You want a fight? Well, you’re about to get one. Better think it over before it’s too late, and we hand you your pansy asses on a silver platter, chopped up into bite-sized slices for easier chewing up and spitting out. You’ve been shoveling your noxious bullshit down our throats for well beyond long enough, and indulge you by submitting though we did, we never did like the taste. We’ve been trying to alert you to your peril for decades now. In your spoiled-brat arrogance, you have ignored our every warning, expressing contempt for our forbearance at every turn. Now our indulgence is coming to its end.

We have no desire to kill anybody, for any reason, ever. But you must never doubt for a single second that, if forced to, we will—in job lots, as many as we can manage. We will stack your corpses like cordwood, and will hunt ferociously for more to heighten the pile. We will hate it, we will be horrified by it. We will regret the circumstances that led to it, and agonize over the choices, on both sides, that made it inevitable. But I promise you, as solemnly as I possibly can: we will do it.

Only if we must, but…WE. WILL. DO. IT.

Thanks to your foolish intransigence and sense of entitlement, our backs are now against the wall. You WILL NOT LIKE US with our backs to the wall; I swear on the graves of my ancestors it’s true. I beg of you, I plead with you, from the very depths of my soul: back the fuck off. Stop pushing. Grant us our right to harbor our own beliefs and to speak our minds freely, even if our beliefs conflict with your own. Leave us alone. At long, long last: leave us alone.

Via Francis, who has plenty more to say himself.


Off the rails

As you guys surely know, I was a big fan of Fred Reed’s for a long, long time there. As you have no doubt noticed of late, I have pretty much stopped excerpting him here. There’s a reason for that.

The strength of the Alt-Right political philosophy can readily be seen in the utterly inept attempts to critique and discredit it. Fred Reed foolishly attempts to have a go

The errors in Fred’s critique are entirely obvious:

  • The Alt-Right does not believe the white race to be intrinsically superior. It believes that each nation finds its own race and culture to be self-preferable, including the various white nations. That being said, the fact that so many diverse population groups observably prefer white cultures and societies to their own does tend to indicate the objective superiority of those cultures and societies.
  • The Alt-Right does not believe that whites “have dominated the world through higher intelligence, and that their mastery is the result of Darwinian selection” for the obvious reason that the Alt-Right knows that a) there is a wide range of intelligence between the white nations, b) the most dominant white nations have not always been the most intelligent white nations, c) national intelligence is far more likely to be the result of various non-Darwinian selection processes such as sex selection and social class distinctions, and d) the white race is not the most intelligent. Unlike Fred, the Alt-Right understands that both average intelligence and the maximum elite intelligence are merely factors in the success of a society, factors that are heavily influenced by other cultural and genetic elements, such as Christianity, time expectations, and in-group trust.
  • Fred relies upon a measure of intelligence in which he does not believe as the basis for his strawman argument. This is doubly dishonest.
  • Intellectual aptitude is not intellectual achievement. Fred is confusing the two. I am a National Merit Scholarship Finalist; that is an indicator of my intellectual aptitude. SJWAL and AODAL are intellectual achievements.
  • There is no trap. First, the Alt-Right points to both white intellectual aptitude and intellectual achievement in distinguishing the white nations from other nations. Second, the Alt-Right case is not made on the basis of that aptitude and achievement, but upon the right of whites to exercise that aptitude and achievement on their own behalf and in their own interests.

As so often happens, the argument for the Alt-Right is only strengthened by comparison with the feeble and dishonest nature of the arguments being made against it. The more they refuse to understand our case, or correctly characterize it, the more appeal it will hold for those who consider it honestly.

The old Fred would be embarrassed by the inept arguments he is offering here.

One would hope so, yeah. For whatever reasons, Fred was (and is) a diehard NeverTrumptard who can’t seem to adjust himself to the Big Fuck You successfully sent by fed-up Americans to the Uniparty establishment with Trump’s election. More the pity…for him.

Fred always did have a not-at-all-concealed contempt for average Americans, and for what we had allowed our country to become. He wasn’t wrong about all of it, not by any means. But it always did kind of bother me a bit; his obvious gleeful eagerness at the prospect of a catastrophic collapse brought on by our own short-sightedness, observed safely from his haven in one of the few livable areas of Mexico, always felt kind of…well, nasty to me. Sure, he had reasons to be disappointed and disgusted by our willing march into the Lefty morass. We all did. We felt much the same, without being at all happy about it, or wishing to see it hastened, or looking forward to the horrid prospect of killing our neighbors and waging war on our kinfolk in Civil War V2.0.

It would seem that, seeded inside Fred’s willingness to abandon all hope for all time, there was a large nugget of Progressivist reliance on experts to save us all from ourselves. He railed again and again at Trump’s novice status, at his lack of a professional-politician pedigree…as if that very outsider status wasn’t one of the primary reasons for supporting him in the first place. As if anybody could possibly still sustain the fairy tale of a GOPe career swamp-dweller rising up to turn the dismal tide against the Powers That Be. As if there was any hope at all that some lifelong political operative, of whatever self-proclaimed stripe, would stand a chance at it—would ever even really intend taking a whack at it at all, rather than talking big about doing so and then going along to get along— of throwing a bit of sand into the gears of the Washington machine at last.

It astounds me even now how many people don’t seem to get it: Trump was the only chance we had. He was the only candidate on offer who wasn’t a wholly owned cog in the greasy machine; who wasn’t deeply invested in the DC Favor Bank; who wasn’t beholden to the Uniparty establishment; who did not give a single fucking damn about attending the right parties, enjoying the right expensive lunches, kissing the right hands, and humbly doffing his cap in the right directions to keep the gravy train rolling right off the goddamned cliff.

No, Trump was exactly what we needed him to be. He was, and is, and will remain, a brash, boorish, obnoxious, egotistical, hyper-competitive son of a gott-damned bitch who is NOT accustomed to losing, and is constitutionally incapable of reconciling himself to it. He is a man who loves his country, and cannot abide the thought of seeing it brought low in the fashion the Democrat Socialists think is just and deserved. He is a guy who understands what it takes to get rich, what prosperity means…and what might aid that, and what might hinder it.

That is all we have right now. Thankfully, it is also all we need right now. Sorry, Fred; take yourself off the train if you must. But it’s leaving either way—and much as witnessing our long decline might have depressed you deep down, you’re going to like being left behind at an empty station wondering where everybody went even less, I’d bet.

No, Fred ain’t a liberal, not by any stretch, and I would never say any such thing. He’s a smart, decent guy and a great writer who long ago abandoned his American perspective for something that seemed better to him at the time, and might well have actually been so. What he is in the end is a guy who gave up, and now must rationalize that loss of hope in any way he can. Maybe he’ll be proved right in the end; God knows I’ve been close enough to it myself now and then, as you long-timers know.

But I still do hold out hope that he’s wrong, that he gave up a mite too soon, whatever that realization might end up costing him personally. And so far, I don’t see much in anything Trump has said or done so far to make me step off into despair quite yet. As I keep saying, the alternative is too horrible to contemplate.


Sideshow Bob steps on another rake!

Hilarity ensues.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was widely mocked on social media Tuesday night after drawing out the revelations in what she announced was an “exclusive story” regarding Donald Trump’s tax returns.

Instead of getting right to her big scoop about a 2005 Trump tax return she obtained, Maddow opened her show with a rambling 20-minute rant outlining her often tangential theories regarding Trump’s connections to Russia.

Maddow did not unveil the relevant tax documents until 23 minutes into the show, revealing that Donald Trump had made more than $150 million in income in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes that year.

Ohh, the fail is truly epic with this one. EPIC. But anybody expecting Madcow to be in the least contrite or embarrassed doesn’t know their standard Mark-1 Mod-0 liberal supergenii very well.

CNN political reporter Maeve Reston described Maddow’s exclusive as a “good story for Trump.” Fox News’ Katie Pavlich speculated that the Trump White House planted the story “to make the issue look ridiculous.”

Well, of course. It’s always Trump’s fault when a liberal-fascist moron shits the bed and beclowns herself, isn’t it? I mean, everydamned thing else in the world is, right?

Still waiting for Obama to release his college transcripts, myself. Ahem.

“You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago,” the White House responded in a statement, adding that it is “totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns.”

Oh, but it’s not ratings they’re desperate for, Donald. It’s something, anything, ANYTHING AT ALL, that they can find a way to inflate into the one killer issue that they can use to take you down.

As for that last bit from the WH statement: right about now I hope the Trump team has that fat schlub of a cretinous NYT “journalist” nobody ever heard of before—that slimy, slithery cockroach who has, it seems, been stalking Trump for years, whatever the hell his name is—who just happened to find that tax return in his mailbox (UNEXPECTEDLY!) bent over a cold concrete bench with his feet in buckets of ice water, his pants around his ankles, a cattle prod up his ass, and electrodes hooked up to a car battery on his blubbery nipples—and that they keep him that way until he coughs up the truth about where it came from. At the very least, he ought to be looking at doing some hard time since, as they said, stealing AND PUBLISHING them is a fucking felony.

No more Mr Nice Guy, Mr President. It’s time to start wrecking these shitweasels for reals. In job lots would be nice, but one by one will suffice for a start. And you’ve got this particularly resinous tub of goo dead to fucking rights.

“OOOHHHH, we really got him now!” And then they shit and fall back in it yet again. I mean, really, people: could they possibly GET any more hapless, hilarious, and inept? Never mind, don’t bother answering that; the one thing we know for sure is that we’ll see soon enough. The downside is that after this particularly sidesplitting clown-car pileup, maybe one or two more, we can start looking for the assassination attempts to begin, as their pathetic incompetence finally sinks in completely, their hysteria peaks, and they finally do go all the way around that deep, long bend they’ve been careening around for months now.

Honestly, guys—especially you folks who were at best skeptical of Trump in the beginning, or haven’t come around to supporting him fully even now—is this not the most fun Presidency EVER?

Update! Wanna know who REALLY ain’t paying their taxes? Take a guess. Go on, guess.

Updated update! Holmes or Clouseau? Or, maybe, something else entirely?

There’s a scene in the 1976 film The Pink Panther Strikes Again in which the nations of the world send their top assassins to eliminate Inspector Clouseau. One by one the assassins take their best shot, and time and again Clouseau survives (and the assassins die) due entirely to pure luck on the inspector’s part. That was the thing about Clouseau; unlike Sherlock Holmes, who would prevail through intelligence and skill, Clouseau could always be counted on to stumble out of danger and pratfall his way to victory. And the bad guys, no matter how smart they were, no matter how skilled, couldn’t beat him.

I’ll be frank; I still can’t decide whether Trump is Holmes or Clouseau. But the sonofabitch always wins, and his enemies always lose in spectacular fashion, and it’s making for a presidency that’s far more enjoyable to watch than any Hollywood movie.

I think it really ought to be obvious to anyone not a dyed-in-the-wool Trump-hater; he didn’t get where he is by accident, coincidence, or stupidity, and the way he just keeps running rings around his enemies—making abject fools of them again and again while they sneer at him for being “stupid”—is a pretty big tell if you ask me.


An awakening under duress

So the campus Leftists turned on one of their own at Middlebury College, for daring to dream of allowing a dissenting view to be expressed. Here’s how that worked out for her:

I agreed to participate in the event with Charles Murray, because several of my students asked me to do so. They are smart and good people, all of them, and this was their big event of the year. I actually welcomed the opportunity to be involved, because while my students may know I am a Democrat, all of my courses are nonpartisan, and this was a chance to demonstrate publicly my commitment to a free and fair exchange of views in my classroom. As the campus uproar about his visit built, I was genuinely surprised and troubled to learn that some of my faculty colleagues had rendered judgement on Dr. Murray’s work and character, while openly admitting that they had not read anything he had written. With the best of intentions, they offered their leadership to enraged students, and we all now know what the results were.

I want you to know what it feels like to look out at a sea of students yelling obscenities at other members of my beloved community. There were students and faculty who wanted to hear the exchange, but were unable to do so, either because of the screaming and chanting and chair-pounding in the room, or because their seats were occupied by those who refused to listen, and they were stranded outside the doors. I saw some of my faculty colleagues who had publicly acknowledged that they had not read anything Dr. Murray had written join the effort to shut down the lecture. All of this was deeply unsettling to me. What alarmed me most, however, was what I saw in student eyes from up on that stage. Those who wanted the event to take place made eye contact with me. Those intent on disrupting it steadfastly refused to do so.

That’s because deep down, one on one, they’re fucking despicable cowards. Just like other fascists throughout history.

It was clear to me that they had effectively dehumanized me. They couldn’t look me in the eye, because if they had, they would have seen another human being. There is a lot to be angry about in America today, but nothing good ever comes from demonizing our brothers and sisters.

Oh, I don’t know about that. If they’re not our brothers and sisters at all in any meaningful sense, but instead are in fact demons bent on denying our humanity and ruling us without our consent, then I’d saying acknowledging the sad truth is not only a good but an essential thing.

Things deteriorated from there as we went to another location in an attempt to salvage the event via live-stream for those who were still interested in engaging. I want you to know how hard it was for us to continue with fire alarms going off and enraged students and outside agitators banging on the windows. I thought they were going to break through, and I then wondered what would happen next. It is hard to think and listen in such an environment. I am proud that we somehow continued the conversation. Listen to the video and judge for yourself whether this was an event that should take place on a college campus.

When the event ended, and it was time to leave the building, I breathed a sigh of relief. We had made it. I was ready for dinner and conversation with faculty and students in a tranquil setting. What transpired instead felt like a scene from Homeland rather than an evening at an institution of higher learning. We confronted an angry mob as we tried to exit the building. Most of the hatred was focused on Dr. Murray, but when I took his right arm both to shield him from attack and to make sure we stayed together so I could reach the car too, that’s when the hatred turned on me. One thug grabbed me by the hair and another shoved me in a different direction. I noticed signs with expletives and my name on them. There was also an angry human on crutches, and I remember thinking to myself, “What are you doing? That’s so dangerous!” For those of you who marched in Washington the day after the inauguration, imagine being in a crowd like that, only being surrounded by hatred rather than love. I feared for my life.

As well you might; you were confronting violent, hate-crazed, frothing fascists with no regard whatever for either your right to think for yourself, or your very life; your physical well-being at the very least was at risk, as you yourself learned. But hey, let’s not get carried away with all that “think for yourself” stuff, right?

To people who wish to spin this story as one about what’s wrong with elite colleges and universities, you are mistaken. Please instead consider this as a metaphor for what is wrong with our country, and on that, Charles Murray and I would agree.

Precisely so.

This was the saddest day of my life. We have got to do better by those who feel and are marginalized.

Again: correct. But not in the way she thinks, judging from her next statement.

Our 230-year constitutional democracy depends on it, especially when our current President is blind to the evils he has unleashed.

And there we are, back to liberal-idiot groupthink. She got assaulted not because of the liberal-fascist vermin who assaulted her, but because of…Trump.


We must all realize the precious inheritance we have as fellow Americans and defend the Constitution against all its enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Yeah, we really should, shouldn’t we? In truth, that is precisely what us Trump supporters are doing. The domestic enemies you mentioned aren’t to be found on our side; we just want you liberal-fascists to leave us alone, as the Constitution you’ve all but destroyed demands. You don’t seem either willing or able to do that; despite our warnings, our pleading, our insistence that you back off, you have steadfastly refused to.

So to hell with you. You can now live with the monster you helped to create. So, so sorry you got mauled and all, but we’ve seen that happen to people on our side time and again, perpetrated by precisely the same sort of vicious, thuggish, ignorant louts that put you in the hospital, so you’ll understand if our sympathy is…limited, at best. For recognizing the sorry truth only after it did direct physical harm to you personally, and failing to see it or speak out against it for the decade or more that this sort of thing has been going on, you’ve earned yourself one (1) golf clap, and a brief rendering of Hearts and Flowers on the world’s smallest violin. Congratulations and three groans to you for your selflessness, brave adherence to principle, and perspicacity.

And until you and your Leftist compatriots understand that protecting our borders, being careful about who we allow to live among us and why; putting American interests first; recognizing who our adversaries are and calling them by their proper name; and making some small moves towards limiting the power and scope of the federal government according to Constitutional mandate so that this once-great nation stands a snowball’s chance to grow and prosper again is in no way hateful, unseemly, or outlandish, it will stay that way. Until such frabjous day, well, like I said: to hell with you.

It’s good that you at least recognized the truth about the people you’ve indoctrinated and enabled, I guess—once it impinged on you personally and did you direct harm. But clearly, you have a bit more thinking to do. Meanwhile, enjoy the beatings every time you step out of line. You can be assured that they will continue, until such time as Trump (or his successor—who, should you and yours succeed in thwarting him, you will like a lot less, I promise) decides to rein the insanity, lawlessness, and sedition in—with the full backing of the people you probably still despise, and the violent opposition of those actually on your side.

Some people never learn.

Update! Lest you think Murray was deserving of any more sympathy himself, Z sets ya straight:

I’ve never met Charles Murray or been in the audience for one of his lectures. I’ve seen him on television a few times and he seems like a nice person, but for all I know he could be a monster. I do know he was cravenly dishonest about the last election. Like the rest of the NeverTrump loons, he refused to acknowledge that the election was a choice between two options, not a choice between Trump and the model of perfection. He believed that gave him a free pass to work on behalf of Hillary Clinton, by working against Trump.

Anyway, Murray went off to Middleburry to give his speech and the campus lunatics shut down the event. They even managed to assault one of the professors, who sponsored the thing. Murray wrote up his reflections on the event, as if it was a seminal moment in the history of the republic. Normies have been getting the business from the lunatics for a long time, but no one cares about them. When Ann Coulter gets screamed at on campus, guys like Murray just shrug, because after all, Coulter deserves it. She’s a bad thinker.

Exactly. Murray and a lot of others failed to comprehend or willfully ignored the true nature of the conflict, cast their lot with the statist clampdown artists rather than the freedom-lovers, and as such I wish them joy of their choice.

This is not supposed to happen to good thinkers like Charles Murray, so it is a big deal to the people who pretend to be on our side. It also offers another opportunity for Conservative Inc. to pretend they are on the front lines fighting the Left. As I pointed out the other day, these guys are looking for a way to insert themselves at the front of the movement they claim to lead, at least until things get serious. You just know that one of them will be declaring himself the “respectable” version of the Dissident Right.

Murray is fond of the label Establishmentarians to describe his peers. While it is true that they are forever defending the establishment, they have no say in what is and what is not the “establishment.” That’s decided by the Left. Since that is always changing, most of these guys spend their days trying to justify the latest movement of the Overtone Window as conservative. It’s why a Jonah Goldberg was out declaring homosexuality a core conservative principle  It’s why a National Review is pro-tranny.

It’s also why the most important project of the Dissident Right is discrediting those palace guards of the Progressive establishment. Guys like Charles Murray are useful opponents for the Left and not just because they are always willing to take a dive. Like the tomato cans that fill up the fight card for a weak champion, Conservative Inc insulates the Establishment from a real challenge. Instead of having to face off against people who are willing to punch back, the Left likes these journeyman who are just happy for the payday.

Yeah, its a shame Charles Murray got heckled in preppy-ville, but it is important to keep in mind that these guys never do anything about it, other than complain. If Murray, or any of the others, gets an invite to speak at Middleburry tomorrow, they are volunteering to jog there if that’s what it takes. It’s why they deserve no sympathy and no support. I have more respect for Based Stick Man than any of the cowards of Conservative Inc. That guy is willing to fight back. That’s a guy who deserves support, not Charles Murray.

The irony here being that Trump is willing to fight back, too. And regardless of whether Murray, Goldberg, or any of the other cucks can or wish to see it, that’s exactly why we elected him. Wonder what they’ll do if the realization ever sinks in that Trump—and the people who support him—just might be their last of hope of guaranteeing not only their right but their physical ability to speak?

Z’s title is perfectly correct: sides are being chosen all over the place. The amusing part is, a lot of people don’t seem able to even see what the sides actually are. Or, perhaps, can’t make up their minds about what side they wish to be on. The ground has shifted under their feet, and they lack the wherewithal to do anything but try to grab something and hang on, hoping they’ll still be upright and unscathed when the shaking stops.

Sad for them and all, but scathing such as they is what the whole earthquake is all about in the first place.

Updated update! Ace:

The left is now in war mode, where violence in the service of tribe is sometimes (by which I mean “almost always”) excusable.

A nation that cannot agree on the most basic nation-making proposition — that we do not wage actual physical, violent civil war on each other over mere differences of political opinion — is not a nation, at least not in more but name, and will not be even that for very long.

Well, at this late date that’s what we’re all sort of waiting to find out, isn’t it?


The speech

Man, I missed it; went to bed early last night, and woke up this morning to some of the most grim, depressed, and hangdog looks on the faces of the Today Show crew I ever have seen. This video is worth watching, at the very least for the two-time Obama voter who hints that he’s done with the Democrat Socialists forever; the interviewer tries to trip him up on the “Muslim ban,” among other things, whereupon he quite forcefully—and accurately—corrects the fool, and then says: it’s about protecting Americans; why wouldn’t you like that?

And that’s the big question, ain’t it? Why DON’T the Democrat Socialists feel themselves able to cheer for establishing a regulatory climate in which businesses might feel encouraged to create jobs for Americans, instead of being punished for it? Why do the Democrat Socialists sit on their hands when Trump talks about being the president not of the world, but of the United States? What exactly bothers them about securing our borders? Or of calling Islamic terrorism exactly what it is, rather than disingenuously refusing to recognize reality? What is it about him doing his job—his one and only job— of putting the interests of this country first that so disturbs them?

Exactly how far gone are they into a reflexive, mindless hatred and contempt for their own damned country and its people that they can’t at least see the political expediency of pretending otherwise?

Doesn’t really matter, I guess; when even Van Jones (!!!) is capable of acknowledging a home run when he sees it sail over the center-field fence—and is promptly pilloried for it—then the writing for these cretins is well and truly on the wall.

RUSH: Now, Van Jones, the avowed communist at CNN, former member of the Obama Regime, was blown away by the moment last night where Carryn Owens was honored along with her husband, a Navy SEAL, by President Trump, and he is being tarred and feathered today by other liberals. They are ripping him a new one, and this is what he said last night on CNN’s special coverage.

JONES: There’s substance, and there’s tone. The substance of the speech I disagree with entirely. But I think at some point Democrats gotta be willing to take “yes” for an answer. We’ve been asking for him to be more presidential. We’ve been asking for him to be less divisive. We’ve been asking for him to pretend like maybe being the president matters to him, as much as it matters to us, and tonight he showed some glimmers of that. If we can’t as Democrats say, “You know what? Thank you for that part,” then I think that we are adding to the problem we’re trying to solve. We’re not gonna get there if everything he does we’ve gotta attack even when he’s right.

RUSH: Well, that’s not the bite that I wanted. He was effusive. That speaks for itself. I mean, that would get him in trouble as it is. But he went way beyond that when he was describing the Carryn Owens moment. And I’ll tell you what that is when we get that.

Here’s what he said: “There are a lot of people who have a lot of reason to be frustrated with Trump, to be fearful of him, but that was one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics, period. And he did something extraordinary. And for the people who’ve been hoping that he would become unifying, hoping that he might find some way to become presidential, they should be happy with that moment.

“For people who have been hoping that maybe he would remain a divisive cartoon, which he often finds a way to do, they should begin to become a little bit worried tonight because that thing you just saw him do, if he finds a way to do that over and over again, he’s gonna be there for eight years. Now, there was a lot that he said in that speech that was counterfactual, that was not right, that I oppose and I will oppose. But he did something tonight that you cannot take away from him. He became president of the United States.”

He was effusive. And the left, you would not believe some of the vicious tweets that have been aimed at Carryn Owens for allowing herself to be used as a prop, allowing herself to be exploited by this evil Trump. And Van Jones being savaged for not seeing that that’s what was going on.

For myself, I’ll just offer up another told-ya-so. Trump didn’t say anything last night that he hasn’t said all along, and all this “new tone,” supposed inclusiveness, whatever, doesn’t sound any different at all to me than he did from the start. The big difference with Trump is just this: he’s actually doing exactly what he said all along he was going to do.

And he’s the only guy in the Republican primary field who could have, or would have. He’s beholden to no one; he has his own money, buckets of it; he relishes conflict, thrives on controversy, positively thrills to eating his competition for lunch, and loves winning; he speaks his mind without hesitation and will not stand still for dishonest attacks, lashing out every time one of his enemies launches another smear campaign against him, calling them out in plain language and telling them to their faces exactly what he thinks of them.

He “became President” last night? Like hell he did; he became President on January 20th, everybody else is just now catching up. But unlike any and every professional politician you could name, he actually intends to keep his promises to the people who elected him. He knows who his friends are. He knows who they aren’t, too. He’s run rings around everybody who opposed or doubted him ever since he took that famous ride down the escalator. He’s weathered storm after manufactured controversy after ginned-up OUTRAGE!, and come out on top EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I expect him to continue to do so, just as I have all along.

He handed the Democrat Socialists their heads last night. They had convinced themselves that America That Was was finished, that we were subjugated once and for all when they contrived, through low skullduggery and contra-Constitutional manipulation, to grab the brass ring of government health care they had lusted for for so long. They got cocky, assumed their victory was permanent and irreversible, and dropped the mask prematurely so that all of us could see the ugly authoritarian face underneath. They figured they had us, and there was nothing we could do about it.

Ahh, but sadly for them, there was: we could turn out in droves and nominate and elect an outsider who didn’t give a single shit about kowtowing to them, mouthing the platitudes to get elected and then getting right back to DC business as usual the moment he was sworn in like all the usual run-of-the-mill Republicrat phonies. We could elect a tough, coarse, über-competitive, cunning, and seasoned hardass utterly lacking in either the urge or the need to suck up to anybody at all. We could throw off the ennui and despair, the resignation to defeat and decay brought down on us by eight years of Democrat Socialist totalitarianism and Republican betrayal. We could believe in our ability to take our country back and put it on the proper path again. We could find ourselves a leader who would dare to defy them, to stand in unswerving opposition, for real this time.

We could, maybe, just possibly, make a start on Draining The Swamp.

And so we have. Now, after last night, they’re shell-shocked. They’re gobsmacked. They just might be finished, possibly for good, or at best until they figure out a way to fool us about who and what they really are again. Last night they had harsh reality rubbed right in their faces, without apology, remorse, or reticence.

They’re going to have to go far, far out of their way to recover ground they thought was conquered long ago, and they’re not going to be able to do it with petulance, weeping, rioting, destruction of property, empty threats, and childish tantrums. Holding one’s breath and turning blue never yet won anybody an election. Sitting slackjawed and glassy-eyed, looking depressed and puzzled while refusing to applaud when a duly-elected President speaks of restoring American strength and prosperity, of putting America first, isn’t going to garner many votes. The very fact that they find the idea so outlandish speaks volumes about how far they’ve removed themselves from mainstream America…and of how difficult it’s going to be for them to find their way back.

They’ve gotten themselves stuck in a very tight spot indeed; their depraved-lunatic base is going to insist on RESISTANCE! and revolution against the normals whose votes they’re going to have to figure out how to retrieve somehow. It’s been said that old-line Democrats like Truman or JFK would have no place in today’s Democrat-Socialist freakshow, and it’s true; Reagan famously said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party, it left me”—and that was more than half a fucking century ago. They have done nothing at all in the way of moderation since. Quite the opposite, in fact.

That ongoing embrace of Leftist radicalism, dragging a meek and collusionist GOPe ever leftward along with them, has left the Democrat Socialist Party with almost no good options. The more they’ve let those freak flags fly, the more they’ve alienated the great mass of normal Americans—ordinary people who don’t really wish to tread on, stifle, or harass anyone, but who at the same time don’t really enjoy having the latest pseudo-intellectual pop-psy fad, government-funded self-indulgence, or outlandish sexual perversion hurled in their teeth, on pain of hysterical accusations of bigotry and Naziism.

And now, after last night’s stunning coup de grace, they just can’t believe what’s happened to them, and that the author of their misery is…DONALD? FUCKING? TRUMP?!?

It’s delicious, ain’t it? This far, no farther, motherfuckers; we have only just begun to fight. After only a month, Trump is perfectly on track to wind up being exactly what I’ve been saying he might: one of the best damned Presidents we’ve ever had. And if he ends up dragging at least a semi-significant fraction of Democrat Socialists back from the brink of abject lunacy in spite of themselves—if only in the utilitarian interest of winning the occasional election again, rather than from any sincere reflection and contrition over having tossed themselves over the abyss into rejection and irrelevance—well, so much the better for all of us.

It beats a shooting war and partition-by-violence all hollow. Judging from their response to last night’s powerhouse speech, I ain’t exactly holding my breath for any sudden outbreak of reason and sanity. But if Van Jones (!!!) can figure it out, at least partially, maybe others can too—enough of them, at any rate, to forestall the otherwise inevitable cataclysm. It’s worth hoping for, anyway, forlorn though that hope might be.



At last.

Feb. 22 (UPI) — A federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday indicted more than 200 people arrested during the presidential inauguration on felony rioting charges, spotlighting their intent to sabotage peaceful protests with violence and destruction.

Called out for individual acts of vandalism, violence and destruction, prosecutors alleged Tuesday that 214 protesters engaged in “black bloc” tactics on Jan. 20 during President Donald Trump’s swearing-in, causing damage to vehicles and property. Six police officers were also hurt during the riots as they exchanged flash-bang explosives with protesters hurling rocks and firecrackers at them.

If convicted, felony rioting carries a maximum jail sentence up to 10 years, and a fine of up to $25,000.

Give ’em all ten years worth of three hots and a cot, and all the sex they can stomach. I’d bet that after seeing this, these “mostly peaceful” protests will suddenly become a lot more civilized and less destructive, if they don’t fade away altogether. The shape of things to come, now that the grownups are back in charge:

A couple commenters say this looks to be a fake, but I ain’t so sure myself. It smacks of perfect Leftard illogic, spoiled-brat whining, and snowflake OUTRAGE! to me. Consider: how is this at all different from the hysteria, lunacy, witlessness, and self-absorption they’ve been so pleased to display all along? Does anybody really think that any of the 200 twerps now facing the music for the first time aren’t thinking these very things, and bleating them at anyone willing to listen? Even if this particular instance is fake, it remains perfectly accurate.

Regardless, as the old-school bikers always used to say: if you can’t do the time, don’t the crime, cupcake.


True colors

It’s all about true conservative principles, man.

Of course you do, you statist, status-quo-Republican shitstain. The government-issued rice always tastes better from one of those famous iron bowls.


“Is the Left dead?”

No, they will always come back and try, try again, like the brain-eating zombies they are.

If leftism is dead, the speech delivered by actress Ashley Judd in Washington, D.C., may well serve as its eulogy.

Judd said her speech was written by a 19-year-old. That would make sense. Because, coming out of the mouth of a grown-up, it was just embarrassing.

“I am a nasty woman,” it began, in a reference to Donald Trump’s quite accurate description of Hillary Clinton. “I’m as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetos dust.” Right off the bat, the speech delivered the sort of hypocritical irony that has now become the left’s trademark. They will demonstrate that insulting them is wrong by insulting you, as they will prove that “Love Trumps Hate” by punching you in the face if you disagree with them, setting immigrant businesses on fire, and breaking the windows of law-abiding stores. A movement that pretends to seek power for the oppressed really only seeks to become powerful in order to oppress their opponents.

The speech continues: “Blacks are still in shackles and graves, just for being black. Slavery has been reinterpreted as the prison system in front of people who see melanin as animal skin. I am not as nasty as a swastika painted on a pride flag, and I didn’t know devils could be resurrected but I feel Hitler in these streets. A mustache traded for a toupee. Nazis renamed the Cabinet Electoral Conversion Therapy, the new gas chambers shaming the gay out of America, turning rainbows into suicide.”

Another trademark of a dying movement is moral hyperbole geared toward keeping obsolete grudges and complaints alive. There is no one in prison in America for being black. People go to prison for committing violent crimes. The fact that blacks commit a disproportionate number of those crimes may be explained in any number of ways, but it’s pure fantasy to claim (as Barack Obama so often did) that systemic, institutional racism continues to exist. Individual racism and moments of injustice, like many despicable things, will be with us always. But the very success of the civil rights movement in purging our institutions of injustice is the reason the modern civil rights movement is nothing but a collection of corrupt race gamers and Democrat hacks. The good work is done.

As for comparing the occasional disapproval of homosexuality with the industrial slaughter of Jews in Nazi Germany … a movement that depends on historical and moral ignorance will ultimately be exposed as fraudulent even when we have a mainstream press that depends on historical and moral ignorance.

True enough. But simple truth, common sense, and objective reality have never slowed them down, shut them up, or quelled their mania for absolute power over everybody and everything before, so we shouldn’t assume it will now. In truth, we dare not assume any such thing: the price of freedom is eternal vigilance against those who would steal it.

Update! The Religious Left: “When a prophecy fails, it does not mean the end of the religion.” Precisely so. John Derbyshire adds:

Consider, however, the fact that religions very rarely fail. They just adapt.

Recall the Millerite sect that flourished in the 1840s. William Miller, who founded the sect, predicted the Second Coming of Christ at a certain date. Thousands of followers sold all their belongings and waited joyfully for the day. When nothing happened, Miller just reworked his calculations and set another day…then another.

Well, maybe they don’t fail and collapse entirely, right enough. But they do dwindle into irrelevance, confined to a handful of shrieking nuts, pounding futilely on the rubber walls surrounding them…as we’re starting to see with the Left now. Doesn’t mean they don’t need to be watched; they assuredly do, and vigilantly, lest they somehow rise again from the ashes of their infirmity. But once past a certain stage of psychopathology, and properly confined and monitored, their ability to do harm is limited to only being able to hurt themselves. Which is exactly as it should be.


Sadly, no

Bill throws a bucket of cold-water reality on our dreams of California secession:

I seem to recall that, once upon a time, millions and billions of years ago (at least as far as historically ignorant leftists are concerned) several other states decided to secede.

Refresh my memory, please. How did that work out for them, again?

Look, I know that some of you simply say “Let the commie bastards go.”

But that’s not really in the cards, you know.

In the comments, he expands on it:

For some odd reason, both of you seem primarily concerned with seeing California destroyed. I can’t imagine why any sane person would think it would be a wonderful idea to cede California geographically to a foreign power. Is there some lunatic reason you think it would be cool to let Communist China or Iran set up across an imaginary line dividing California from the surrounding states? Not to mention a California possessing massive natural resources, a sizeable percentage of the most productive farmland in America, some of the best harbors in the world, etc., etc., etc.

No, we aren’t going to let California go just because some conservatives are all butthurt about what asshats lefty Californians (who may not even be a majority of the population) have done or said in the past.

Not to even mention the difficulty presented by the prospect of loss of access to the home of the Pacific Fleet. Sorry guys; it was a beautiful, beautiful dream: to see the Shriektard Left cut loose, left to their own devices to slowly starve; to have their own statist folly brought home to them at last; to watch them descend into an inescapable Hell of their own devising; to see their smug arrogance-in-ignorance brought up short against the harsh realities of life in a way they could neither deny nor even hope to survive with their adolescent fantasies intact. But I’m afraid we’ll have to let it go…until the ultimate partition and remaking of the entire country is upon us.

And no, that ain’t gonna be exactly pleasant either, should it come to pass. When all is said and done, it looks like the Crybaby Left is just going to have to grow up at last—if they can. If not, we’ll just have to go right on defeating them, I guess.


Fed up

Fucking beautiful.

Dramatic video shows bystanders cheering on police officers who broke up an anti-Trump street protest Wednesday in Portland, Ore.

Portland Police Bureau officers in riot gear emerged from behind a stopped bus to confront the protesters, who were blocking traffic in the city’s downtown area near the intersection of Southwest Yamhill and 6th Avenue.

“Take them all down!” one man was heard yelling.

“Thank you for doing your jobs guys, appreciate it,” another said.

You have every right to protest and legally express dissent, and nobody opposes that. You have no right whatsoever to block the streets, smash windows, harass and intimidate passersby, set fires, and interfere with people trying to get to or from work, or otherwise peaceably going about their daily rounds.

As Trump said: it stops now. The days of these whining asswarts getting away with this shit—disrupting life in our cities; throwing damaging public tantrums without repercussion; wanton, mindless destruction; vandalizing and rioting and inflicting violence on normal Americans for the crime of daring to disagree with them—are over. And not a moment too soon, either.

Bottom line: We won. You lost. FUCK you. Get over it…or pay the price. Which would be, y’know, ten years, 25,000 dollars.

Want a fight? You’ll by God get one. Careful what you wish for, little snowflakes.


Liberals want conservatives to shut up; conservatives want liberals to keep talking

And there’s a reason for that.

The Democrat Party – guardian of pathology: worship of foreigners, embrace of the underclass, fawning over feminist and sexual freaks, hostility to free speech, slobbering over globalism, blindness regarding Islam, and blindness to violence and the breakdown of public order.

Guardian of working people (or anyone else)? Not so much.

So what we’ve seen is one of the great political parties of 20th-c. America turn itself into a zoo whose inmates couldn’t recognize (a) Hillary Clinton’s monstrous betrayal of our fighting men and diplomats in Benghazi and (b) the astonishing corruption involved in her pay-to-play Clinton Foundation and its Saudi donations. Grotesque speaking fees caused not even a raised eyebrow in the sycophantic house press.

Nothing remarkable there. Our Hilly.

Pointless, reckless, aggressive, unconstitutional war in Libya and Syria? Not an “anti-war” protestor within a thousand miles.

The stench was overpowering but she was the Democrats’ star. Coal miners to the remainder bin. Tough.

As annoying as they’ve been, and will continue to be, we should all hope they keep right on—let their insanity and total dysfunction have full and free rein for all to see. They’ll fix things so no Democrat Socialist can get elected to the lowliest local office imaginable for the next hundred years. And America will be far, far better off for it.

Although I must say, I don’t think it’s that they couldn’t see Hillary’s “monstrous betrayal” etc. It’s that they didn’t much care; they chose to overlook it, for political purposes. In truth, it’s even worse than that: they chose to try to help cover it up. Which only makes them that much more slimy and repellent, really.

Update! Just keep talking, babe.

Candidates aspiring to take over as chairman of the Democratic National Committee met Monday night to discuss what went wrong in 2016 and how to get the party back on track.

Democrats must provide “training” that focuses in part on teaching Americans “how to be sensitive and how to shut their mouths if they are white,” urged the executive director of Idaho’s Democratic Party, Sally Boynton Brown, who is white.

The event’s moderator, MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid, asked the candidates how the party should handle the Black Lives Now movement.

The candidates uniformly emphasized that the party must embrace the activists unreservedly.

“It makes me sad that we’re even having that conversation and that tells me that white leaders in our party have failed,” Brown said. “I’m a white woman, I don’t get it…My job is to listen and be a voice and shut other white people down when they want to interrupt.”

Did I say they won’t be able to get elected to anything for a hundred years? Okay, I was wrong; make it a thousand. As Steve Sailer says: “Back in 2009 I suggested that Republicans could help rebrand the Democrats as The Black Party, but white Democrats seem intent on doing that to themselves all by themselves.” But it’s even worse: they’re not The Black Party, they’re the Indigent, Belligerent Black Thug Party. No need to smear decent black folks by associating them with the Democrat Socialists’ only remaining constituency, y’know.

Oh, and have I mentioned how dignified and worthy of respect and serious consideration those “pussy hats” make you look, ladies?



Telling graph

Well, not a graph, exactly; a map, one you’ve probably seen by now, showing counties won by Clinton (The Clinton Archipelago) versus the much vaster area of Trumpland. It’s the most powerful argument imaginable in favor of the Electoral College to those of us who don’t wish to be ruled despotically by the likes of New York, Chicago, and LA, but Bill makes an even more vital point regarding it:

Couple of thoughts spring to mind:

1. Trumpland looks geographically like America. If you flashed it on a screen without labels and asked most anybody on the planet what country it was, almost without exception the response would be “the United States.”

2. The Clinton Archipelago, despite possessing approximately the same population, looks like an easy matter for TrumpLand to conquer or obliterate, if push comes to shove, given that it is isolated, utterly dependent on TrumpLand for food, water, raw materials, fuel, and pretty much every other necessity of life (including illegal drugs – cut off those drugs, and most of those cities would burn to the ground within a week or so).

3. The residents of the Clinton Islands want the rule of the mob, because all they have are mobs. But mobs are like locusts – they destroy their own sustenance, and then they die.

Number Two is the real killer. Literally.


That 70s show!

It was the worst of times, it was…the worst of times. Now on endless rerun, in an urban area all too near you.

If at any point in 2017 Trump supporters are harmed or harrassed like the rally in Chicago, expect Righties to get very interested in forming street defense leagues: goons and headhunters to make Black Bloc spit teeth. And they’ll be purely defensive. For a while. But they’re human. So then they’ll think about getting proactive.

Bluntly: this is dangerous. The people who do it for the Left are literal Communists. What kind of Righties will it draw? Oh, I dunno, I’m guessing people who’re comfortable with violence, who don’t mind breaking norms or being arrested…

…if you’re now thinking, “Oh shit,” well, guess what? So am I.

If streetfights start happening on a regular basis on American streets, our democracy will corrode very quickly. We’ll see rapid radicalization at both poles, meaning normalization of political extremists.

Mainstream Lefties happily go to protests they favor that are organized by the literal Stalinists of ANSWER & the Worker’s World Party. Why? The commies are really good at getting people signs and making sure there are enough port-a-potties. When you’re great at organizing signs & port-a-potties, Lefties overlook that you’re into an ideology that murdered a hundred million people.

So how far would this go? Would mainstream Nazi-hating Righties be ok w/ literal Nazis on the streetfighting squads that keep them safe?

I dunno; how’d you feel about folks who voluntarily get their bodies between your peaceful gathering and a crowd trying to intimidate you?

Lefties could keep that very human thing from happening. But they’d have to de-escalate. And they won’t. Mellow out on college campuses? Quit disrupting righty events? No chance. It’s too much fun. So the hard Left is going to do more to normalize literal Nazis in America than anyone since Charles Lindbergh.

The Right is not big enough or organized enough to really destroy Lefty Institutions. Like the Left, they’ll be looking to intimidate people out of the game and take away enemy tools. Example: Institutional and media bias means radical Leftist tactics are accepted, which means radical Leftist tactics become normalized. Ergo, the only way the Right can delegitimize Lefty tactics is to use them, at which point they’ll become The Worst Things Ever Done By Man. My guess is the Right will start using Leftist tactics against members of Leftist Institutions: “This is what you ordered. Eat it.”

Some of this could actually be constructive for campus civility. For instance, I’ve long argued that if a Righty speaker is disrupted on a college campus, then campus Righties should *disrupt every single Lefty speaker for the remainder of the school year.* Of course, Righties can’t get away with what Lefties get away with, so no swarming, no intimidating people, no pulling fire alarms. What Righties can get away with: standing up and chanting, at the top of their lungs, “THIS IS WHAT YOU DO TO US.” In multiple stages, for maximum distraction. Leaving peacefully, of course. The bad news is that’s about as cheerful as these face-offs are going to get. They can and probably will get much nastier.

This is a very small bit of a very long post, but it’s well worth a look—especially if you weren’t around back in the 70s and don’t know the backstory of the radical Left’s ascension, or were and have forgotten. The nice thing is, if Trump follows through on locking up the Crybully Left’s rent-a-mobs for 10 years as he ought to, he’ll end up short-circuiting a whole lot of this admittedly grim stuff.

One thing I know for sure: the idiot Left is going to keep right on with their inane protests against Trump. They will do so until they begin to be made to hurt from it—until there’s a concrete price to be paid for trying to overturn or politically cripple a legitimately elected president. At that point, most of them will go the fuck home and do their sniveling in private. Or on Facebook.

Today’s Hard Left isn’t that of the 70’s: there are a lot fewer real hardcases among ’em, and a lot more pampered brats used to pushing as hard as possible right up until things get too difficult or uncomfortable for them, at which point they fold up like a cheap accordion and slink home to Mommy. So the key is going to be very simple: punish them when they go past legitimate, peaceful protest and tip over into rioting, destruction, and mayhem. The only reason their nonsense has gone as far as it has is because it was allowed to.

Trump said in his inauguration speech that “it stops today.” Hold fast to that, President Trump. That’s really all you gotta do.

Gauntlet: THROWN

Ohhh, you’re gonna LOVE this one. I sure did.

I know you don’t know me. I know you don’t even think about me and when you do, it’s probably not anything nice. I’m the evil hegemonically masculine patriarchal oppressor to you feminists. I’m the jackbooted statist thug to you dope smokin’ long-haired hippies. I’m “The Man” to you racial activists. I’m the idiot who joined the military because I “wasn’t smart enough” to go get a liberal arts degree like you know-it-all 20-year-old college dipshits; and for some reason you hate me for that. I’m that guy with the rifle who signed on the dotted line for $24K a year so that you budding Marxist fucksticks could have the freedom to complain about me and the manner in which I provide it. I have a little message for you.

I see you there, in Portland… In Chicago…In San Francisco…In Bumfuck Directional School Liberal Arts College…You’re having your temper tantrums because ever since mommy dropped you off at Daycare 20 years ago you’ve been throwing them to get your way. Now you’re super pissed about the results of a presidential election where the other guy (and the only guy in the race for that matter) won.

I’m not here to talk politics, or explain the Electoral College, or to tell you what hypocritical douchebags you are for doing the things you’re doing. No. I have a much simpler conversation to have with you. See, I read what you post on Twitter, Facebook, and your various internet blogs. I see you on the news breaking things, setting fires, and assaulting people of the opposite political belief. I see you there with your fat ugly unshaven feminist women and black power slogan screaming race baiters, throwing rocks and bottles at the lines of police officers trying to keep order in your own cities. I know your rhetoric. I know all your identity politics stems from the Marxist activists and ‘intellectuals’ who have pushed the American left farther left than ever before. I know you believe your “progressive” views are the supreme moral authority on every single issue and somehow this perception allows you to justify your totalitarian social views and hypocritical violent outbursts. You profess to hate half this country for their alleged bigotry while carrying signs that say “Love Wins!”

I also know you’re a coward.

And he damned sure does know it, too. He goes on to explain just how; savor every perfect fucking word.

It puts me in mind of those stupid #(Only)Black(Criminal)LivesMatter riots here a few months back, which began over the righteous shooting of yet another worthless, gun-toting gibmedat thug with a rap sheet as long as an orc’s arm—and were smack-dab OVER the moment the governor sent the National Guard in to the midst of the mayhem. All of a sudden those angry, oh-so-fucking-courageous Social Justice “Warrior” (spit!) twerps were all smiles and friendliness, going down the line of troops just back from the Sandbox with their M16s and ARs and shaking hands with them, or trying to…and then marching their worthless asses straight the fuck back home to mama.

Like Iron Mike says: shit or get off the pot, pussies. And stop crying already, ferchrissakes.

Bonus post update! Another good ‘un from Gruntworks, which is heading straight for Ye Olde Blogroll: “A message of thanks to the outgoing president.



So why isn’t he hiring us, or consulting with us?

Shorter version: WAAAAH!

Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation.

One letter, with 122 names, was published by War on the Rocks, a website devoted to national security commentary, during the primary season in March. The other, with 50 names, including some repeat signatories, was published by the New York Times during the general-election campaign in August.

Now, just days before Trump is sworn in as the nation’s 45th president, the letter signers fear they have been added to another document, this one private — a purported blacklist compiled by Trump’s political advisers.

“Before he won, the conversation was, ‘We really would love for you to change your mind and join us,’ ” Peter Feaver, a National Security Council special adviser under President George W. Bush, said of informal talks with Trump aides. Feaver, who signed both letters, added that, “Since he won…the conversation is, ‘There likely will be a blacklist of people who signed the letters who won’t themselves be eligible for a post.’ ”

Trump transition aides did not respond to a request for comment for this article.

Good. Fuck you, every last one of you. Why the hell would Trump invite a bunch of backstabbing losers into his Administration, knowing full well (as any rational person would) that these self-same people will be the source of endless leaks to enemies both foreign and domestic, and will work diligently to undermine his goals and intentions every step of the way?

Moreover: you go-along-get-along, status-quo GOP perennial losers were exactly what Trump was running against. When he talked about “draining the DC swamp,” YOU were the people he was talking about. It’s a measure of the arrogance and sense of entitlement of these Beltway bandits, and of the depth and unshakability of their assumption that business as usual will continue forever in the FedGovCo Sargasso, that they have the balls to whine now about how Trump might not be interested in listening to them or working with them…or to even express surprise over that in the first place.

You rolled the dice. You lost. Tough shit for you. Shut the fuck up, and get the hell out of the way. You people are the architects of failure after folly after disaster after defeat in foreign policy, one piled upon another, from Iraq to Afghanistan to Iran to ISIS to…you name it, it’s a long damned list. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, ‘kay? And lose Trump’s number, in the unlikely event you have it; I assure you he won’t be needing to hear from you. Along those same lines:

Comedian DL Hughley had some harsh words for Donald Trump in a twitter video he posted last weekend.

After accusing Trump of “stoking racist fears” about Obama, Hughley stated: “I ain’t gon’ never forget what you said about this man and how you got where you are… F—k you now and f—k you forever.”

Right back atcha, loser. With bells on.

Earlier in the video, the comedian disparaged Trump’s recent attempts to connect with black people by meeting with celebrities such as Kanye West and Steve Harvey.

“You know why you have a comedian, a rapper and a football player out to talk about the concerns of the community?” Hughley questioned. “’Cause that’s the position you’re used to seeing us in…You’d rather see us run the ball than run the country.”

Damned skippy we would. Not because of your skin color, but because you’re a whining liberal bitch who’s been wrong about absolutely everything; as I mentioned above, the disastrous results from the efforts of people who “think” like you speak for themselves. You’d turn the whole country into Detroit if you could, and actually did make a damned good start at it. Again: why on earth would Trump, or any other Republican not a crawling, mewling, perennial-loser RINO wish to hear from you at all, after this:

CNN host D.L. Hughley turned to the standard left-wing tactic of playing the Nazi card against Republicans on his program on Saturday evening: “The tenets of the Republican Party are amazing and they seem warm and welcome. But when I watch it be applied — like you didn’t have to go much further than the Republican National Convention….It literally look[s] like Nazi Germany.” He went on to say that blacks weren’t welcome in the party: “It just does not seem — like not only are we not welcome — not only are we not welcome, but they don’t even care what we think.”

Well, whaddya know, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. “You’re racist bigoted homophobic NAZIs, you guys, and I hate you! Hey, why aren’t you listening to me?!? YOU BETTER LISTEN TO…Guys? GUYS…?!?”

I repeat: go fuck yourselves, libtards and #NeverTrump RINOs. We WON. You LOST. And for once, that’s going to mean something; we’re not going to bend over and follow up our victory this time by pretending you won and letting you have your way anyhow. Now pucker up, kiss our asses, and get the hell out of our way.

But by all means, do go right on throwing your little tantrums and calling us Nazis every chance you get. You’ll fix things so that you’ll never get so much as a single vote from anyplace other than decaying, coastal urban shitholes for the next century or so. And that will be just fine by me. As Ed sums up: “And the left still is shaking their head pondering how Trump became president.” Hint to the morons: it ain’t because you’re smarter than everybody else.

Keep whining. Meanwhile, get out of the way…or get steamrolled. Your choice, dimwits. At this point, we don’t much care which. You kept pushing for a fight, and now you got one—by awakening a sleeping giant, as someone else once said. Here’s hoping you enjoy the ride every bit as much as he did. To the very last mile, bitches.

Update! Bonus quote from Steyn, from the post quoted above:

Donald Trump took out America’s two most powerful political dynasties of the last 30 years: the Bushes and the Clintons. If you didn’t see that coming, there’s no reason anyone should pay any heed to anything you say about Trump from now on.

Yes indeed. They won’t remember it, of course, much less learn from it. But we’ll be reminding them, every single chance we get and forcefully as all hell.


A list

Oh, it’s a good one all right.

Leo Decaj wrote: “Keep this in mind :

Donald Trump did not steal your money.

Donald Trump did not raise your taxes.

Donald Trump did not quadruple the price of food.

Trump is not stirring a race war.

Trump did not leave any US soldiers in Benghazi to be slaughtered and desecrated by Muslims.

Trump did not send the US Navy to fight for Syrian Al-Qaeda.

Trump did not arm ISIS and systematically exterminate Christians throughout the Middle East.

Plenty more of ’em, too. All of which serves to remind me, for some reason, of this hilarious bit of Leftard boobery:

TruthRevolt just reported on their article comparing the President-Elect to mass murderer Dylann Roof. Now Salon has posted an article about the Syrian catastrophe with this headline: “Hey, President Donald Trump: Do you know where your bombs are falling?”

That’s right, more than a month away from setting up house in the Oval Office and Trump is already being blamed for bombing Syria.

Just remember, they’re smarterer than you.

And that puts me in mind of this: I was riding around with a good friend of mine the other night, a Mark 1-Mod-0 liberal, of course, and he was talking about how, even though he didn’t much care for his music, he totes admired Frank Zappa for the way he stood up to those “conservative fucksticks” responsible for the PMRC. I didn’t have the heart to remind him that that was…uhh, Al Gore’s wife Tipper.

But on reflection, maybe I shoulda. Every last one of you here knows what it’s like to deal with these people; we hold our tongues to keep the peace. It’s just not worth the candle to argue with people so completely convinced of their own righteousness, no matter how many times reality keeps tripping them up. It’s tiresome, and it’s bootless; they’re not listening anyway, and even if they were, they’re not remotely persuadable by mere facts or logic. You can’t reason someone out of a position they never reasoned themselves into.

Lately I’m thinking, though, that the time for that sort of polite forbearance is all done. As a professional musician, just about everyone I deal with in that field is a bonehead lib of some stripe or other, and I’ve long since grown accustomed to just shutting the hell up when they start in. My God, if most of the people I’ve worked with over the years even knew this web-sty existed, I would’ve long since been blackballed right out of the music business altogether.

It’s the same reality the handful of Hollywood conservatives have always had to confront. The Left is so “tolerant,” so “broad-minded,” that one’s very livelihood can be placed in very real jeopardy by committing the outrageous mortal sin of open disagreeing with them. As a result, Hollywood types have been reduced to holding secret meetings to discuss the issues of the day amongst themselves.

I’ve never once mentioned this site on my Facebook page, which I don’t much bother with anyway; I do post gig info on the FB page when I can remember to do it, and that’s about it. Nor have I ever mentioned the blog in any conceivable context with my various bands. Blogging is something I do, and music is something I do, and never the twain shall meet.

That’s not just because I’m afraid of any backlash from my Leftard friends; mixing music with politics is something I just don’t do anymore, although I sure did back when I was playing punk rock as a good little Leftard myself way back when. I just think it’s inappropriate, and can only end up demeaning the music in service of…well, not anything worthwhile. It took me a good long time to see the wisdom of Elvis’s disdain for bringing politics into the music, but I’m fully on board with it now.

But I know as well as you do that the backlash would be real, and severe; it’s not just paranoia stays my hand. The political is personal, as the Left says, for them anyway. Which just means that if you disagree with the Left, and you earn your living among Leftists, and you make that disagreement known, you WILL lose friends over it—gar-on-teed, you will. If they have their way about it, you will lose your livelihood, too.

But seems to me that with Trump’s great victory, maybe it’s time at last to come out of the shadows, at least in some ways. I still have no intention of mixing my politics with my music; like I said, I think it’s inappropriate, and not worthwhile anyway. In truth, I find a lot of the bands I loved back in my punk-rock days just about unlistenable nowadays because of the relentless, ceaseless political proselytizing; the Clash would be a perfect case in point. I used to love them way back when, but now? Ugh. Just…ugh. The only thing that will get me spinning the car-radio dial faster than Obama’s self-righteous drone is something, anything, from Sandinista. I repeat: ugh.

In contrast, one of the best bands of that era was the Ramones, who (whom?) I still just love. Non-political to the core, they were. You’d never figure out their personal politics from listening to, say, Rocket To Russia. If it’s mere coinkydink that Johnny was a diehard conservative, well, hey, go figure, right?

All in all, though, my days of holding my tongue when confronted by Leftists slamming my beliefs in the mistaken assumption that I think just like they do would seem to be coming to an end. The truth is, I’m about fed to the gills with it. Trump’s win, as clearly salubrious as it has been so far in all the bigger ways, might just work out nicely for all of us even on a more micro, personal level too.

Feels like liberation, in truth.

So yeah, it might just be time to remind some of these liberal fucksticks (ahem) in no uncertain terms that “tolerance” and “diversity” is about way more than just skin color. Call it The Enlightenment, v2.0. I’ll let Marky Ramone have the last word:

The Ramones famously sang “I Wanna Be Sedated” — but there was nothing sedate about the legendary punk rockers as they toured the country in a cramped van and talked politics, Marky Ramone tells Newsmax TV.

In fact, Ramone says, it was staunch conservative Republican against leftie Democrat as he and band mates Johnny, Joey and Dee Dee rode in their Ford Econoline — and all politicians were fair game for insults.

“Johnny was a conservative and Joey was a liberal Democrat and I’m a Democrat, but you know I have a lot of conservative friends,” Marky said Friday on “The Steve Malzberg Show,” as he promoted his new book,”Punk Rock Blitzkrieg: My Life as a Ramone,” published by Touchstone.

But Marky said he and his bandmates — none of whom were related although they all used the name “Ramone” — knew the value of having the freedom to debate. And they loved it.

“That’s the country we live in, thank God, and we’re able to do that. So I respect people’s politics,” he said.

And THAT is what we’re in very real danger of losing now—but it won’t be conservatives who did it. We’ve had long, long practice in keeping quiet in order not to upset our tremulous, overwrought, unstable liberal-fascist friends. The catastrophic end-game that will be the result of that loss will not be pretty. None of us ought to be happy about it, none of us should be wishing for it, and we’re all going to suffer greatly for it before all is said and done.

But maybe it’s inevitable. Freedom-loving, Constitutionally-oriented Americans who want only to be left alone cannot exist cheek-by-jowl with true fascists who want to regulate our every move. The two beliefs are fundamentally incompatible; once the Left set out to render the Constitution a dead letter, they destroyed the very foundation of that uneasy truce and set in motion a chain of events that just may end up impoverishing us all in every way imaginable, and destroying them altogether. It’s my belief that they’ve crossed the deepest of Rubicons, and did so prematurely; it’s going to cost them quite damned dear in the end.

But if that’s what it takes to get them off our necks at last, well, so be it. Maybe they’ll wake up before it’s too late. Hopefully so. I’m not going to be holding my breath, and neither should you.

In the interest of letting Marky truly have the last word: I’ve mentioned and excerpted it before here, and the quote above is a reminder that I really gotta scrape up the cash for Marky’s book. And into the ol’ Amazon Wish List it goes, so I don’t forget.


I get spam!

From…wait for it…(Only) Black (Criminal) Lives Matter.

No, really.


I’d sooner see your mouths sewn shut than see you violent, America-hating racists invoke the name of MLK—who, despite being a flawed man like the rest of us, was on the whole a decent American and didn’t share much if anything with you guys in terms of either viewpoint or tactics.


Like Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Black America has an opportunity to speak truth to power.

Like King knew, you always did have. All you haters had to do was leave out the cop-killing, rioting, looting, and reflexive hatred of white people. And of course the lying, which is the foundation of your entire misbegotten movement. Just another thing you and King don’t have in common. Heather MacDonald, as usual, has that covered:

Black Lives Matter ideology is just a more in-your-face manifestation of the Coatesian conceit that blacks are living in a system determined to destroy them. The Chicago Black Lives Matter chapter embraces the motto “Stop killing us,” aimed at the Chicago Police Department. It chants: “CPD, KKK: How many children did you kill today?” (The answer is: Virtually none. Last year, over 3,400 people in Chicago were shot, overwhelmingly black. Victims included 24 children 12 years of age or younger. The Chicago cops shot 25 people, virtually all armed and dangerous, or .6 percent of the total.)

Radley Balko rushed to tweet out that the Chicago kidnapping is not a trend because since 2001, 80–85 percent of white murder victims were killed by whites. True, but the percentage of blacks killed by blacks is higher. From 1980 to 2008,93 percent of black victims were killed by blacks. White-on-black homicides are much rarer than black-on-white homicides. The vast bulk of interracial violence is committed by blacks. In 2012, blacks committed 560,600 acts of violence against whites, and whites committed 99,403 acts of violence against blacks, according to data from the National Crime Victimization Survey provided to the author…

She has plenty more, naturally, which you readers can all peruse at your leisure. But back to the BLM bullshit:

President-elect Donald Trump made campaign promises in an attempt to win us over. Talk is cheap. Politicians promises mean nothing. We’ve heard it all for decades. If President-elect Trump is serious about helping the black community, he first has to hear from us face to face.

If Trump (or anyone else) is serious about helping blacks—or more importantly, doing something to prevent the manufactured racial tension in this country from boiling over into a hot war—he would do well to avoid you like the plague, and not listen to any of the lies you routinely puke up.

We will march to Trump Tower on Saturday, Jan. 14th to demand a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. We are not coming for a photo-op or for beer diplomacy. The topics of conversation is the life or death of too many in our community, the livelihoods of the forgotten.

President-elect Trump will you stand face to face with us, hear us out? Believe me, we are ready to go toe to toe with your administration for the next four years if you don’t.

You’re gonna do that anyway, and we all know it. It doesn’t matter in the least what Trump might say or do; your refusal to look the facts in the face when it comes to black crime and justified police shootings of worthless, amoral thugs is proof enough of that. You might fool liberals suffering from the usual guilt complex, but no one else.

The Black Lives Caucus is an organization based on building a Black Voting Bloc. We are a nonprofit organization composed of activist, concerned citizens and high school students that are demanding accountability. We pledge no allegiance to any politicians or political parties. The Black Vote will be open to all candidates. This movement started with the I Ain’t Voting Until Black Lives Matter campaign which divorced blacks from the Democratic Party. It has evolved to an effort to build the Power of the Black Vote.

Well, if you well and truly did divorce yourselves from the Democrat Socialist Party, it was at least one smart move you made. The only one, so far as I can tell, but maybe it just might indicate that there’s some cause for hope in the longer term.

Our inaugural march on Saturday, January 14th will honor Martin Luther King, Jr. and oppose Donald Trump. We have Marchers marching from all 5 boroughs to Trump Tower. We are intentionally marching in New York City and not in Washington DC, because here is where we change the course of American politics.

You’re 13 percent of the population, responsible for more than 80 percent of the crime. Lots of luck with that.

Many black leaders and organizations claim to represent our interest, but they stand in unity with politicians who fail to represent the interest of Black Communities.

You keep talking about “the interest of Black Communities” without ever once specifying what those interests are. Will your interests be served by the removal of all white cops—or all cops, period—from your godawful, war-zone “communities”? Because at this point, there are plenty of us who would be more than willing to contemplate exactly that, and see just how that works out for you. Better than having more innocent cops killed by your snipers, or injured in your riots.

Is it in your interests to let the criminals preying on the decent black folk in your “communities” waltz away from their criminal predation scot-free? Turn ’em all loose, Bruce? Cry havoc, and let the slip the dogs of uncivilized barbarism to run riot through the few decent blocks left?

And when you’ve burned out all the businesses there and are whining about “jobs,” what then? Gonna go on bitching about “urban food deserts” when the last grocery store goes under because of all the looting, shoplifting, and strong-arm robbery? Gonna plant yourself a rooftop garden and grow your own food to feed yourselves with? Or are going to whine for more welfare dependency for the “underprivileged”?

I doubt very much that you have any clue at all what your interests truly are. Judging from the evidence of both your statements and your actions, you identify your “interests” with all the accuracy and wisdom of any 16 year old suburban brat. And the results of indulging your interpretation of your “interests” will be every bit as disastrous, if not way more so.

In honor of MLK’s week of service we are beginning our mission. We have sent over one hundred high school students into the streets of NYC to recruit and register voters. We are also phone banking to reach 25,000 voters over the next seven days. We will teach our people how to think and vote for themselves.

That would probably be the most constructive thing anybody ever did for you, or ever could. If only it were anywhere near true, or likely.

But all the hate, all the inexcusable violence, all the excuse-making for primitive criminals, all the racial unrest being fomented by A) worthless ghetto layabouts looking for handouts, B) stupid liberal college kids who don’t know when they’re being made fools of, and C) slimy politicians looking to promote a seriously sinister agenda—does have an end-state. I’ll let Jim Goad drop you a hint:

Americans know who Dylann Roof is but not Omar Thornton. They remember Rodney King but not Reginald Denny. They’re familiar with the murder of Emmett Till—which happened in 1955—but not the much more gruesome murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, which happened in 2007.

The videotaped evidence of the Chicago kidnapping/torture reveals beyond a whisper of a doubt that the perps were, if not exactly “kids,” extremely stupid. Droolingly stupid. So stupid it seems miraculous that they even knew how to use Facebook for long enough to incriminate themselves. They appear to be possibly even dumber than the bricks that were apparently smashed into their heads and made them this dumb in the first place.

But how dumb was Austin Hillbourn to idolize a black thug who clearly didn’t idolize him? How severely naïve was he to get in the stolen van that night? Kids make stupid decisions, and on New Year’s Eve at that McDonald’s in the Chicago burbs, Austin Hillbourn made the dumbest decision of his life.

Fear has its place. A little bit of fear would have served Austin Hillbourn well. Perhaps his childlike acceptance of someone who wished him harm was part of his mental condition.

But what’s clear is that his attackers had no fear. And that may be part of a much bigger problem—the fact that no one seems afraid of white people anymore.

True enough, I guess. But that can always change, and if you keep slandering, murdering, and preying on us, it very likely will.

The truth is, the overwhelming majority of white people simply can’t be bothered with hating black people. Almost all of us get along just fine with the black people in our lives, and we all have at least a few in our lives on a daily basis: as friends, neighbors, co-workers, business partners, whatever. The KKK/white supremacists/Nazis you people keep bitching about are such a tiny fraction of the population as to be truly infinitesimal in number, and have no impact or relevance whatsoever on anything at all. The only ones they matter a whit to are agitators and rabble rousing race pimps, and the parasitic media who sensationalize them.

But when Donald Trump is a RACIST!—when every single Republican or conservative or non-proto-Marxist white person is routinely denounced as the second coming of Hitler, evil incarnate—well, frankly, we’re getting more than just a little bit sick of all that. And we’re not willing to just sit back and take much more of it. Not anymore. That free ride is well past its final station, and is about to be turned around and headed back the other way.

As I keep saying: 13 percent of the population—any population—should be very damned careful about wishing for a race war (much less actively trying to provoke one), lest they wind up getting their wish.


How you got Trump Part the Umpty-bazillionth

Via Glenn: “I love America. It’s Americans I hate.” Yeah, well, see, we knew that already; quite well, thanks. It’s not as if you’ve ever shown us the respect or consideration of going to any trouble trying to hide it. Quite the opposite; with every breath, every ignorant declaration, every dismissive statement, you’ve made it clear as crystal.

And we’ve had a bellyful of it. For a long time, our principles of tolerance, freedom of speech and dissenting political opinion, and the right to be left alone overrode our sense of self-preservation and demanded otherwise, but truth to tell, at this point, we hate you right back, sweetums.

All you ever had to do was just leave us the hell alone, and we would have been content to return the courtesy. Unfortunately, that is the one thing you just couldn’t do; your totalitarian ideology demands otherwise. As such, it was always going to end this way; big-government socialism and freedom are by definition fundamentally incompatible.

And long as we’re being honest, this needs to be said too: no, you do NOT “love” America. You love a fantasy that has never been real and bears little—actually, no, none at all, except as its directly conflicting opposite—relation to America as it was intended to be: an ersatz-utopian version of America, where capitalism is spurned, freedom is strictly curtailed, and an iron-fisted, top-down, meddlesome government is not something the Founders loathed and worked extremely hard to forestall, but the only legitimate form of government, “for our own good.” Yours is the falsest of false-flag “patriotism,” hiding your loathing for America as founded behind a thin scrim of self-serving twaddle and shallow opportunism, mostly for purely political purposes.

The Constitution to you is not the cornerstone of our governance, a brilliant, precious document that, if respected, guarantees more benefit to more citizens than any other form of government on earth. To you, it is something to be scorned and ignored when it is inconvenient to your desire for despotism, a document of purely historical interest, and precious little even of that.

Well, except for the First Amendment. But that, only as it relates to burning the flag. You big ol’ America-loving patriot, you.

Ahh, but does it get better, you ask? Why, yes. Yes, it does. Via that same Insty-link, I bring you the most pathetic thing you’ll probably read all year:

A visit from a plumber left ThinkProgress senior editor Ned Resnikoff “rattled” due to fear that the plumber may have voted for Donald Trump.

The plumbing visit, which came four days after the 2016 election, became a harrowing experience for Resnikoff even though the plumber was “a perfectly nice guy and a consummate professional.”

“He was a perfectly nice guy and a consummate professional,” Resnikoff shared. “But he was also a middle-aged white man with a southern accent who seemed unperturbed by this week’s news.”

Resnikoff said his fear was rooted in the chance that the plumber knew he was Jewish.

“While I had him in the apartment, I couldn’t stop thinking about whether he had voted for Trump, whether he knew my last name is Jewish, and how that knowledge might change the interaction we were having inside my own home,” he said.

The “uncertainty” of the situation left Resnikoff “rattled for some time.”

“I have no real reason to believe he was a Trump supporter or an anti-Semite, but in my uncertainty I couldn’t shake the sense of potential danger,” he wrote. “I was rattled for some time after he left.”

Well, see, that’s more because you’re a feeble, gutless, pathetic pussy—a trembling paranoiac with some truly major psychopathologies rattling around in that otherwise-empty skull— than any other reason, and really has nothing at all to do with the plumber, or even Trump himself. I mean, for God’s sake, you admit yourself that he was a perfectly nice guy and a consummate professional, and that you don’t even know whether the guy voted for Trump or not—not that it would matter a damn to a normal, sane human being, as opposed to someone who isn’t fit to tie his own shoes and probably ought to be locked up in some sort of home for his own protection. No, not locked up because you’re Jewish, you wretched little chihuahua; because you’re certifiably bug-fuck nuts, that’s why.

But no, he just knows, he dead solid knows, that this poor guy is a BAD MAN because he’s, and I quote: “a middle-aged white man with a southern accent” who ain’t pissing himself because an election didn’t go his way like some of the lesser sorts among us. Gee, bigoted much there, Poindexter?

I swear, if I was this pitiful I’d just be damned if I woulda told it. I wouldn’t want it generally known of me what a sorry excuse for a man I was. But then, since he works for Think Progress, he’s probably trapped in an office with some of the meanest, grouchiest, scariest, man-hatingest bull-daggers ever to shit behind a pair of steel-toed Timberlands; having one’s withered gonads surgically removed with a flint adz is probably Job Requirement One in such environs. Any semblance of masculinity was stomped out of his ass a long time ago.

But y’know, it DOES make me wonder how many of these sobbing sad-sacks are so TEWWIBLY, TEWWIBLY FWIGHTENED of what might be done to them in Trump’s America because deep down, it’s merely projection—a direct and clear reflection of what they secretly desire and intend to do to us someday. To which notion I can only say: bring it, pusscake. Any time you feel froggy. Better get help. And pack a lunch. Failing all that, get over yourselves already, whydon’tcha. We’re all just embarrassed for you at this point, and it’s getting tiresome. You hear less whining in a fucking nursery right before naptime. At least the tired little tykes have got a reasonable excuse.



Once more unto the breach, dear friends.

When the recount strategy fell apart for lack of evidence the narrative morphed from hacked voting machines to “Russian hackers” and a “hacked election.” It’s a claim that’s meant to sound terrible while remaining vague enough to avoid refutation. It’s also a phrase that doesn’t really mean anything and that’s the point. Because it’s real purpose is to stoke despondent Clinton voters’ resentments and leave them with the impression that Donald Trump’s presidency is somehow illegitimate. The claims are a savvy way of preparing the political battlefield and give Democrats some leverage in their uphill battle to stop Trump from enacting his agenda.

Still, on the eve of Donald Trump’s presidency, a presidency that is paired with a Republican controlled Congress and can accomplish so much good, it is frustrating to watch stubborn NeverTrump conservative intellectuals and pundits play the part of useful idiots. The wildly overblown claims of a “hacked election” are a totally transparent trap baited and set by the Left to undermine Donald Trump’s presidency and stymie his agenda. But their ideology, which has been reduced to mere negation of all things Trump, blinds them to the trap set by the likes of Van Jones, John Podesta, and Chuck Schumer.

The claims of a “hacked election” are nothing more than warmed over stories about the emails from the DNC and John Podesta’s Gmail account that WikiLeaks released in the summer and fall. The entire country knew all about this before the election and concluded that the story was not who did the hacking—everyone knew the emails had been hacked—but the information contained in the emails.

The fact that the scandals, dirty tricks, and potentially illegal activity revealed by those emails turned many Americans off on the notoriously distrusted and disliked Hillary Clinton cannot be blamed on Vladimir Putin, WikiLeaks, or anyone else. The blame rests squarely on the shoulders of the Democrats themselves.

Ultimately, their goal is to take a scalp or two by defeating some of Trump’s cabinet nominees, especially Senator Jeff Sessions who is widely hated and feared on the Left, and to slow the repeal of Obamacare. The only way they can do this is by driving a wedge between Trump and some of the weaker members of the Republican caucus in Congress. They hope that endless repetition of the “hacked election” claim will leave behind a taint of illegitimacy that will become the wedge they can use. This is especially so in the Senate where Democrats have their sights on Senators like McCain, Flake, Graham, and Snowe who have demonstrated a preternatural desire to buck their own party.

Republicans should see Democrat claims for what they are: a brazen attempt to gain political advantage by creating a phony crisis of confidence. Trump voters won a resounding victory on November 8 but NeverTrump conservatives threaten to lose the peace by playing into the Democrats’ cynical attempt to blame foreign intelligence agencies, rogue states, and lone wolves for their loss. Hacking of government systems and political operatives has been happening for decades. It’s an important security issue but it’s not news.

The real story is the corruption and shady deals that the hacked emails exposed. The American people understand this—it’s one of the reasons they elected Donald Trump.

Fucking bingo. Eyes front, everybody; going forward, we’re going to find out once and for all just who among the Republicans are far worse than RINOs, but outright Democrat Socialist collaborationists. Which revelation will be yet another service rendered to America by Trump, likely before he’s even sworn in.


What’d I tell ya?

They will never stop. NEVER.

Ivanka Trump and her three children were harassed by a fellow passenger Thursday on a flight out of New York.

An “out-of-control passenger” was “verbally berating” the 35-year-old daughter of President-elect Donald Trump and “jeering” at her children, according to TMZ.

“Your father is ruining the country,” the JetBlue passenger said to Trump, the entertainment news site reports.

“Why is she on our flight? She should be riding private,” the man, who was apparently holding his own kid in his arms, then exclaimed.

Another passenger on the flight out of John F. Kennedy International Airport told the site that Trump “ignored the guy and tried distracting her kids with crayons” before the man was escorted off the flight. As he was removed, the man reportedly yelled, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?”

God damned right, you hysterical asshole. For some of us, politics isn’t our sole reason for being, and you have no more right to harass a private citizen—one who, if I remember correctly, is a big ol’ liberal herself, ironically enough—in an airport than anyone else does. Most especially because you gutless wonders have seen fit to surrender to the Mooselimbs, you just don’t fuck around like this in an airport anymore, or anywhere near one. Just another “benefit” of decades of idiotic Progressivist policies, and thanks a pantload for that, too.

JetBlue released a statement to TMZ that said the decision to remove a customer from a flight was never “taken lightly.”

“If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight.”

Shoulda waited to “deplane” his obnoxious ass until they were at cruising altitude.

A man, identified by TMZ as the husband of the passenger who was booted from the plane, wrote on Twitter:

Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil

“Banality of evil”, is it? Dang, there’s that loud whizzing sound overhead, the one I mentioned the other day.

Tell me, have we reached peak “punch back twice as hard” yet? Because personally, I’m just about ready to start giving it right back to these crybullies, up close and personal, measure for exact fucking measure.

Unity? With these people? In a pig’s eye, and when Hell freezes. I sure hope like hell the Donald keeps right on employing his private security right alongside the Secret Service. He’s going to need every bit of protection from these frothing fascist losers he can get.

I heard on the radio earlier they put the two shitwits on the very next flight—instead of on a permanent no-fly list where they belong. Ah well, maybe next time…and there will certainly BE a next time, you can count on that.
