Jeh Johnson Demonstrates Why We Need Limited Government

Most will agree that we need the government to provide security. But even so, the ultimate security resides in our ability to limit the government’s power. Otherwise, “security” means whatever authorities say it means, no matter how absurd. For example:

Jeh Johnson said the removal of Confederate statues was a matter of “public safety and homeland security” on Sunday.

Regarding the campaign to eliminate all traces of Confederate history, which recently has gone into overdrive, with historical statues and war memorials around the country being vandalized by leftist mobs or disappearing during the night:

“I salute those in cities and states who are taking down a lot of these monuments for reasons of public safety and security,” he added. “And that’s not a a matter of political correctness. That’s a matter of public safety and homeland security and doing what’s right.”

Under Obama, this character was in charge of Homeland Security.

If forcing currently disfavored historical figures down the Memory Hole to prevent them from becoming what Johnson calls “rallying points” for political opposition is now a matter of public safety and homeland security, so is anything else the government may want to impose.

Whichever side you are on, the other side will be in power sooner or later. That’s why limited government benefits everyone — except tyrants.

Russ Feingold Confirms: All Republicans Are Nazis

Why is the Left suddenly so obsessed with eradicating Nazis? Do Nazis have a significant presence in this country? Are they a threat to democracy for the first time since 1945? Of course not. Nazis are a harmless historical relic, just like the Confederates liberals are so determined to erase. Except that to the Left, anyone who isn’t a leftist is a Nazi.

Don’t take psychopathic Antifa moonbats’ word for it. Russ Feingold was a prominent Senator:

In a recent column for The Guardian, former Democratic senator for Wisconsin Russ Feingold clarified what all this controversy about white supremacists and Confederate statues is really all about: Republicans are Nazis.

“The lesson from Charlottesville is not how dangerous the neo-Nazis are,” he writes. “It is the unmasking of the Republican party leadership. In the wake of last weekend’s horror and tragedy, let us finally, finally rip off the veneer that Trump’s affinity for white supremacy is distinct from the Republican agenda of voter suppression, renewed mass incarceration and the expulsion of immigrants.”

Insisting voters present IDs so as to prevent fraud and enforcing drug and immigration laws = the Holocaust.

That’s why, according to the liberal media, cold-cocking a stranger for wearing a MAGA hat is the same as storming the beaches of Normandy.

As Saul Alinsky might say, Pick your target. Demonize it. Attack it in the streets. Eradicate it.

Antifa violence and the War on History aren’t about the radicalization of the Right, but the radicalization of the Left.

Antifa Goon Tries to Kill Someone for Wearing a Fashie

They won’t stop with Confederate generals. Maybe next the Antifa SJWs so beloved by the liberal media will focus their violence on people whose haircuts make them look like “fascists” — like Joshua Witt:

Witt says he’d just pulled in to the parking lot of the Steak ’n Shake in Sheridan, Colo., and was opening his car door.

“All I hear is, ‘Are you one of them neo-Nazis?’ as this dude is swinging a knife up over my car door at me,” he said.

“I threw my hands up and once the knife kind of hit, I dived back into my car and shut the door and watched him run off west, behind my car.

“The dude was actually aiming for my head,” he added.

The only thing he can think of that would make someone imagine him to be a fascist is his haircut.

He’s thinking of changing his look, he says.

Anything Antifa doesn’t like must be changed. To disagree would be fascist.

Witt’s haircut is unsafe in the Land of the Free, thanks to liberal tolerance.

The Atlantic Views the Eclipse Through the Lens of Critical Theory

Insights from classic literature never run out of new applications. Take this great line from Hamlet:

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

This could have applied to nothing in Shakespeare’s time more aptly than it does to modern liberalism, a cramped ideology that attempts to construct an entire worldview out of cultural Marxism, which in its core application boils down to worship of blacks and demonization of the whites who allegedly oppress them.

The more widely liberals attempt to apply this pernicious system of belief, the more obvious its absurdity. Imagine viewing the universe in all its vastness and intricacy through the cracked, foggy prism of political correctness. The Atlantic actually tries, with a brutally long piece that shoehorns today’s eclipse into the diminutive realm of critical theory:

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. The moon’s shadow will be about 70 miles wide, and it will race across the country faster than the speed of sound, exiting the eastern seaboard shortly before 3 p.m. local time. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people.

The insufferably pretentious essay drags on for thousands of words, denouncing those who live in the path of the eclipse for their whiteness and political incorrectness.

It concludes as you knew it would, with a pietistic condemnation of America:

The Great American Eclipse illuminates, or darkens, a land still segregated, a land still in search of equality, a land of people still trying to dominate each other. When the lovely glow of a backlight fades, history is relentless, just one damn fact after another, one damning fact after another. America is a nation with debts that no honest man can pay. It is too much to ask that these debts simply be forgiven. But perhaps the strange path of the eclipse suggests a need for reorganization. We have figured out, more or less, how to count every person. We have not yet found a political system in which every person counts equally.

Until Big Government becomes ubiquitous enough to impose absolute equality, so that there is no such thing as excellence and no point in exerting any effort because no difference will be permitted between the best and the worst, America is a benighted land, eclipse or no eclipse.

Nothing eclipses liberals’ obsession with cultural Marxism.

Antifa Leader: Violence Against Right Wingers Is Not a Crime

One of the many things the Democrat establishment and the Republican establishment agree on is that Antifa goons are the good guys, because they oppose the radical right. That puts a white hat on Yvette Felarca:

Felarca, the Berkeley area school teacher and militant left-wing protester responsible for organizing the riot at the University of California, Berkeley in February 2017, claims that violence against the far-right is “not a crime.”

Felarca, who belongs to “By Any Means Necessary,” a far-left group, is currently facing assault charges after she was caught on video assaulting a white supremacist during a July 2016 rally in Sacramento, Cali. …

“Standing up against fascism and the rise of Nazism and fascism in this country is not a crime,” she said.

By “fascism” and “Nazism,” she means any point of view to her right, i.e., any point of view other than her own — including those of Antifa’s useful idiot mainstream supporters.

L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer: Meta-Hate Hoaxer

These days there is no shortage of hate hoaxers. Los Angeles bureauweenie Mike Feuer rises above the rest. He is a meta-hate hoaxer, who hoaxes about hoaxes:

On Friday, City Attorney Mike Feuer held a press conference about the recent rise in hate crimes and hate speech across the country, and last weekend’s tragedy in Charlottesville. The city attorney strongly condemned President Trump during his speech, saying that Trump has “helped to normalize, embolden and give license to the neo-Nazis” and other hate groups currently surging across the country. Feuer also revealed that hate crimes and hate incidents in the city of Los Angeles have increased starkly over the past year, although the actual numbers remain relatively low.

Relatively low is putting it mildly.

The L.A. City Attorney’s office received and reviewed 32 hate crime/hate incident investigations between January 1, 2017 and August 17, 2017…

This is in a city of 4 million.

Of those 32 incidents between January of this year and now, nine of those incidents were ultimately filed by Special Trials as non-hate crime prosecutions (vandalism, assault, etc.) and one incident was filed and convicted as a hate crime. Several remain under filing review. The City Attorney’s office also only deals with misdemeanors; felony crimes would be handled by the Los Angeles County District Attorney. The District Attorney’s office was not immediately able to provide information on whether they had seen a rise in hate crimes so far this year.

Whether that single confirmed hate crime had anything whatsoever to do with Trump or neo-Nazis is doubtful. Yet it was enough for Feuer to stoke hysteria and puff up his public profile by calling a press conference. This publicity stunt also landed him on the Hate Hoax List.

NAACP Calls for NFL Boycott Over Kaepernick Not Being Signed

Runaway moonbattery continues to destroy the NFL. First ratings took a big hit after brass tolerated the anti-American antics of social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick and his imitators. Now that no team wants to sign Kaepernick, who is far better at alienating fans with his leftist posturing than he is at throwing a football, the NFL gets hit from the other side:

The NAACP has called for a boycott of the NFL. The organization says the league treated free agent Colin Kaepernick unfairly for his headline grabbing protest during the national anthem.

In the interests of racial solidarity, fans of a sport played mainly by black people at the professional level are asked not to attend games or even watch them on TV.

Though the boycott is nationwide, the call is coming from Atlanta, where there has been particular anger that Kaepernick was not signed by the Falcons.

“There will be no football in the state of Georgia if Colin Kaepernick is not on a training camp roster and given an opportunity to pursue his career,” said Gerald Griggs from Atlanta NAACP. “This is not a simple request. This is a statement. This is a demand. And if Mr. Kaepernick is not allowed to pursue his career, then on September the 17th, at 5:00, we are going to have the world’s largest tailgate, and that tailgate will not go into Mercedes-Benz Stadium. We will take a knee, and we will continue to take a knee on the NFL until they act with one voice.”

Another rally is scheduled for NFL headquarters in New York. It was announced by Kaepernick’s fellow fading race-baiter Spike Lee.

According to rumor, Kaepernick has already turned down offers. The main point of the boycott may be to inflate whatever contract he signs. Players of color who theatrically refuse to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner deserve fat contracts, no matter how meager their athletic ability.

This type of extortion made Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton rich. Now it will be used to force the NFL to sign players based on their race and their leftist political views rather than their talent. At some point, someone has stand up to these thugs. We’ll see if it is the NFL.

Words lose their meaning when they are misused. Since Nazi no longer refers specifically to atavistic maniacs who revere Adolf Hitler, it no longer means anything.

A Jewish Voice Explains Why Internet Companies Are a Lot Scarier Than Modern Nazis

Bryan Lunduke demonstrates that you don’t have to like the Daily Stormer even the least bit to understand that if it can be silenced, anyone can:

Google, GoDaddy, Facebook, and the rest of the liberal Internet establishment are a vastly more serious threat to the American way than a handful of screwballs who revere Adolf Hitler.

The campaign to eradicate Confederate memorials quickly spread, so that all memorials are in danger, even those of the Founding Fathers. Likewise, the Daily Stormer will not be the last website to fail to comply with the ideology that prevails in Silicon Valley.

Zimbabwe: No Prosecution for Killing White Farmers

Someday liberals will achieve their objectives. White privilege will be eradicated, and the white race marginalized. This utopian future has already come to pass in Rhodesia, which we now know as Zimbabwe:

Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has said that people who murdered white farmers during a government-sanctioned purge in the 2000s will never be prosecuted. …

Zimbabwe implemented a controversial land reform program in 2000 that saw squatters invade and seize hundreds of white-owned farms around the country. The violent seizures resulted in the murder of several white farmers, with many more displaced, and close associates of Mugabe given large chunks of land.

“Yes, we have those who were killed when they resisted. We will never prosecute those who killed them. I ask, why should we arrest them?” Mugabe said, according to Zimbabwean news site NewsDay.

It turns out that shouting leftist slogans about the evils of the white man doesn’t make crops grow. That’s why people are going hungry in what was known not long ago as the Breadbasket of Africa.

Even now, there are a few white farms left producing food in Zimbabwe. But Mugabe recently shouted:

“We are going to take those farms and re-distribute them to our youths.”

Come back in a year or two to read this same story again, except set in South Africa.

War on History Continues: Lincoln’s Memory Attacked in D.C., South Side Chicago

Lincoln freed the slaves. He gets the thanks we have come to expect:

A ninety-year-old bust of Abraham Lincoln, our sixteenth president, was destroyed in a South Side Chicago neighborhood overnight on Wednesday.

The bust was wrapped in tar paper and set aflame.

Honest Abe has been caught up in the latest frenzy to destroy anything that reminds liberal social engineers and the mobs of idiot savages they mobilize of America’s heritage. It started with Robert E. Lee but predictably hasn’t ended with him. As noted earlier, the memories of Lincoln’s fellow great presidents George Washington and Andrew Jackson are also unwelcome in Chicago.

Nor is Chicago the only place where the Great Emancipator is under siege. In our nation’s capital:

Someone vandalized the Lincoln Memorial, the National Park Service said.

The words “F— law” were found written in red spray paint early Tuesday on a pillar at the monument that overlooks the Capitol building and National Mall, NPS said Tuesday afternoon.

America’s answer to Mao’s Cultural Revolution is well under way. If it is successful, we will start fresh with no history, no heritage, no culture. The leftists who control the media and education establishments will have a blank slate to draw upon.

Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson Replaced by Pregnant Black Woman

The campaign to eradicate memorials to any historical figures liberals consider not to have been in compliance with their ideology is mainly about symbolism — and symbolism couldn’t be any more perfectly emblematic of what America is being transformed into than this:

Activists lifted a modern sculpture depicting a pregnant African-American “Lady Liberty” onto the pedestal where a monument to Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson was removed overnight.

The new statue is not sanctioned by the City of Baltimore which owns the site, but there was no immediate action to remove it by police or city officials.

The competently executed statues of Lee and Jackson were products of a culture that honored great men. The new statue is a product of what American culture is becoming:

New Yorker Cover Offers Less Than Sophisticated Viewpoint

Because Trump suggested that both sides are to blame when left-wing extremists brawl with right-wing extremists, instead of holding the left-wing extremists 100% blameless like other Republicans do, this is how he is portrayed by the flagship publication of liberal elitists:

new-yorker-trump-cover

How do these people manage to be so juvenile and yet take themselves so seriously?

The main difference between KKK and neo-Nazi types on one hand and Antifa thugs on the other is that the former are fading relics of the past, whereas leftist totalitarianism is still very much a threat, as any North Korean, Cuban, or Venezuelan can tell you. Readers won’t learn that from the New Yorker. But they do get to smirk along with outrageously unjust characterizations, helping themselves to heaping helpings of smugness.
