…illegal aliens matter more to those in the process of fundamentally transforming America so as to secure a permanent socialist majority:
The same goes for the black jobs illegal aliens are taking.

Using George Orwell’s 1984 as an instruction manual, today’s oligarchical collectivists have reduced language to a tool for implementing their agenda. The politically correct doubletalk that serves them as language obscures the actual meaning of what they are saying because it is specifically intended to.
You can translate their pernicious malarkey into plain English with the help of a handy online translation table. A few sample entries:
|When they say…||They really mean…|
|multiculturalism, diversity, fairness, equity, inclusion, inclusiveness, opportunity, empowerment||racial quotas, discrimination against whites, special rights and preferential treatment for protected minorities, the exclusion of white males|
|reproductive rights, choice, reproductive choice, reproductive freedom, reproductive health care, fetal rights, women’s rights||abortion, fetal homicide|
|edgy, irreverent, pushing the envelope, cutting edge, hip, bold, smart, sophisticated, offbeat||compliments used to describe vulgar, offensive, profane, brazen, blasphemous or obscene entertainment venues, TV programs, movies or Hollywood personalities|
Moonbats have good reason for talking in euphemisms. Their ideology expressed in honest terms would repel any rational person.

Some excuse Obama’s policies by implying that he must be incompetent, this being the only explanation other than deliberate malice. But not everyone in the White House is a complete idiot, or they wouldn’t have come out with this wise directive:
The White House quietly released a draft guidance telling federal agencies to consider the impact carbon dioxide emissions will have on the environment, but only in terms of the amount of CO2 emitted. When conducting environmental impact analyses on rules and projects, that is, federal agencies should avoid mentioning potential increases in temperature, precipitation, storm intensity, and other environmental impacts that scientists warn about.
This is because CO2 levels have continued to rise, but the harmful environmental consequences that this must produce according to the theory of global warming have conspicuously failed to materialize. Also, even if CO2 did have a major impact on the climate, economically malicious regulations inflicted by the government would not be sufficient to have anything close to a significant effect on the temperature, sea levels, et cetera.
At least they realize that actual climatic conditions debunk their hoax. The solution: ignore actual climatic conditions. This is easier to do when you are part of the ruling class and have underlings to shovel the snow for you — in addition to the B.S.

This is the homework assignment kids get when the sort of people who run the government are also running schools:
The principal of Romeo [Michigan] High School has called an outraged father to apologize about a controversial homework assignment.
The 9th grade biology worksheet sent home with students this week featured questions about a mother trying to determine the identity of her baby’s father.
Possible answers included: the cable guy, the mailman, the cab driver, the bartender and the guy at the club.
“The goal is that the students are understanding blood types and DNA and possibilities based on the makeup of the two parents,” explained Romeo Schools Superintendent Nancy Campbell.
At least kids growing up in today’s disintegrating culture can apply the lesson to their daily lives.

Some degree of sanity has survived California’s demographic transformation and subsequent plunge into moonbattery. Don’t worry, moonbats, the libs in charge are working diligently to eradicate it:
California Democrats are trying to reverse a decades-old state law that bars families from getting extra welfare money for having an additional child, describing the law as “sexist” and “classist” — despite concerns that repealing it could compound the state’s money woes.
The so-called “welfare queen” law was passed two decades ago during the heyday of welfare reform.
Welfare reform was unquestionably extremely effective at getting people off welfare and into jobs. That’s why Democrats have been methodically reversing it. Given that California is effectively a single-party state now, they should encounter very little resistance.
Lest anyone imagine that the Dems have benevolent motives, consider the effect on the poverty rate of paying the unmarried and unemployed for every child they produce out of wedlock. The money comes from those responsible enough to only have children they can support themselves. The obvious result will be an explosion in the population of people who don’t work, and a collapse in the population of people who do.
In the short term, this is good news for Democrats, but extremely bad news for everyone else.
In the long term, the reverse Darwinism of liberal survival of the unfittest will debase the population to the point that our descendants will probably ambulate on all fours.
California already has the highest child poverty rate in the nation. Thanks to progressive policy, it won’t be going down. That they want to alleviate the plight of the poor is possibly the most outrageously brazen lie liberals ever tell.

Rudy Giuliani invited an attack by a swarm of hornets by opining that Barack Obama does not love America. Engaged patriots responded to Rudy’s allegation with two words: “No kidding.” No one familiar with his background or his policies would be likely to think Obama has a fond regard for the country he promised to fundamentally transform. But liberals, many of whom were consciously or unconsciously motivated to vote for him by the anti-Americanism he personifies, can always counter that we have no way of knowing for sure what is in someone’s heart.
While that may be true, we do know what is in our own hearts. Sometimes that is reflected by polls. According to YouGov, only 47% of Americans think Obama loves America.
Although YouGov spins this as a repudiation of Rudy, the figure is absolutely appalling. To suggest that the President of the United States does not love the country would have been unthinkable prior to Obama. No other president would have scored more than a few points below 100%.
Yet despite an establishment media that hyped him into power and continues to aggressively spin in his favor, and despite 85% of Democrats dutifully believing or pretending that he does love the country, Barack Obama is seen as meaning the country well by a minority of the population.
This implies that on the whole we no longer see the federal government as representative, but rather as being hostile to our heritage and to us. The political instability this will inevitably cause may be Obama’s main legacy.
On a tip from Jester.
From the single-party city that gave us Barack Hussein Obama — introducing the police black site:
Lawyers have compared the off-the-books interrogation warehouse in Chicago’s Homan Square neighborhood to the CIA’s so-called black sites offshore that are used to interrogate terrorists.
Police at the site in Chicago reportedly carry heavy military gear, and huge armored tanks are parked outside.
“There are usually questions about whether these arrests are justifiable or constitutional,” Anthony Hill, a criminal defense attorney, told Business Insider. “Suspected criminals are just picked up and thrown into the back of unmarked cars by police officers wielding assault rifles and wearing bulletproof vests. Describing the process as highly militarized would be fair.”
“It’s a black hole,” Hill added.
Foreign terrorists may get Miranda rights, but not Chicagoans who fall into the black hole of Homan Square. They don’t get lawyers either.
Hill noted that when arrests are questionable, police will often take suspects to Homan Square instead of to a police station to avoid having a record of an arrest ever being made. …
Reports have emerged of police abusing and even torturing arrestees until they agree to talk. One man left Homan Square with head injuries, while another mysteriously died in the interrogation room.
The Chicago police department’s interrogation techniques reportedly include prolonged shackling, family threats, and demands to implicate others.
Hill says fear of retribution is keeping former detainees quiet about their experiences.
Hope & Change has boiled down to infamously corrupt and heavy-handed Chicago-style politics going nationwide. How long until clicking links the NSA thinks people shouldn’t be clicking on results in Americans disappearing into federal versions of Homan Square?

George Mason University Student Representative Fired for Objecting to Instate Tuition for Illegal Aliens
In an ideologically homogeneous environment like academia, certain thoughts cannot be allowed. For example:
A former student representative at George Mason University was removed from his position after tweeting about “illegals” receiving in-state college tuition which was perceived as offensive by some students.
Storm Paglia assumed the position of undersecretary for university dining services last May and on Feb. 13 tweeted his disapproval of the Virginia Senate and House allowing “illegals” to have “in state tuition with an easier process than if I were to apply.”
“And the next time someone tells me the word ILLEGAL is inappropriate please enlighten me on how they haven’t broken our country’s laws,” Paglia continued in a separate tweet.
GMU’s student body president, Philip Abbruscato, released [an] official message on Sunday boasting of the school’s “thousands of unique voices” and the student government’s “variety of backgrounds, cultures, ideologies, academic interests, and more.”
Abbruscato also said that “demeaning” remarks from members of GMU’s student government would “not be tolerated at any level regardless of belief,” and removed Paglia from his position on Feb. 20.
Abbruscato was apparently responding to screeching activists from the Virginia Student Power Network. This outfit denounced Paglia as “racist” for pointing out that it is unfair that we are forced to subsidize the tuition of people who are in the country illegally, and who are given advantages that American citizens do not enjoy.
The people in charge aren’t going to argue with you, because they know they will lose any rational argument. They will simply shut you up, usually in a way that will serve as an example to others who otherwise might hesitate to conform to the official ideology.
Ironically, considering the official contempt shown for American sovereignty and for the fundamentally American notion of free speech, GMU is named after one of the Founding Fathers, who along with James Madison is known as the co-father of the Bill of Rights. GMU’s sports teams are called the Patriots.

If this country still had any comprehension of the absolute necessity of free speech, these half dozen words from Hillary Clinton would cripple her political career:
“It’s a foot in the door.”
Shrillary was referring to Obama’s alarming attempts to use the FCC to do to the Internet what ObamaCare did to health insurance, and the EPA is doing to the coal industry.
The remark confirms that as with all federal regulation, its main purpose is to provide leverage so as to inflict further regulation. So long as a single unapproved thought can be expressed on the Internet, the fascistic likes of Obama and Shrillary will not be finished with it.

One purpose of a court jester is to tell truths that only an acknowledged fool could get away with admitting. Joe Biden continues this tradition — unless we are so far gone down the trail blazed by Lenin that it is okay now for top government officials to openly call for the “emancipation” of the wealth we create:
Vice President Joe Biden used a Black History Month event at his official residence Monday night to decry the rich, both white and black, for stunting economic growth and suggested that “emancipation” is in order.
“A lot of wealthy white and black people aren’t bad but they control 1 percent of the economy and this cannot stand,” Biden told about 100 guests, including past civil rights activists and NBC weatherman [not to mention proud White House pants-pooper] Al Roker.
“It’s not fair because the business experts are saying that concentration of wealth is stunting growth. So let’s do something that’s worthy of emancipation,” said Biden, according to a press pool report of the event.
Another term for the “emancipation” of wealth by wealthy oligarchs like Biden under cover of Marxist rhetoric is “confiscation.”
By encouraging his audience to resent people who work hard and achieve economic success even if they are black, Biden confirms that propaganda regarding “white privilege” and the reality of black privilege are merely means to an end that has nothing to do with race, and that is most commonly symbolized by a hammer and sickle.

Uh oh. Shrillary has been chatting with Eleanor Roosevelt again:
“One of the best pieces of advice that I have ever heard from anyone is from Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1920s, who said that women in politics or in public roles should grow skin like a rhinoceros,” Clinton said at an event kicking off a partnership with her family foundation’s “No Ceilings” project and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “I think there is some truth to that.”
I wonder if Eleanor also advised her to grow cankles like a hippopotamus.
Shrillary has had heart-to-hearts with the wife of America’s first radical left president before. Incidentally, Eleanor Roosevelt died in 1962. No word on what position she will hold in Shrillary’s cabinet if the media is successful in its next presidential coronation.

Creepy global warming profiteer Rajendra Pachauri has been forced out of his position as Chairman of the farcical yet menacing UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change due to a sexual harassment complaint. Interestingly, on behalf of the IPCC he shared the Nobel Prize for helping to propagate the global warming hoax with Al Gore, the “giggling crazed sex poodle” who got in hot water for molesting a masseuse. Before leaving, Pachauri made clear that ecofascism (i.e., global warming) is more than a scheme to achieve money and power at other people’s expense. For the liberal ruling class, it is quite literally a religion:
“For me the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma.”
A godless religion that regards humans as the source of everything bad and their absence as the essence of goodness is unlikely to have positive results.

Extreme obnoxiousness is both a curse and a blessing for insufferable moonbat commentator Keith Olbermann. Without it, he would have no career, since it is the distinguishing characteristic that earned him national prominence. But he also doesn’t have much of a career because of it, having been fired when not even the far left kooks running MSNBC could stand him anymore. He washed up at comparably liberal ESPN, where he has now been suspended for denouncing a $13 million Penn State pediatric cancer fundraising effort as “pitiful”:
Keith Olbermann will not host his show for the rest of the week, ESPN said Tuesday, because of tweets critical of Penn State and its annual THON fundraiser.
“We are aware of the exchange Keith Olbermann had on Twitter last night regarding Penn State,” ESPN said in a statement. “It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the views of ESPN.” …
THON is an IFC/Panhellenic dance marathon at Penn State, which since 1977 has raised more than $127 million for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, according to the THON website. The most recent marathon took place Friday to Sunday and raised $13 million.
They are letting Überdouche come back on Monday due to his groveling apology:
I apologize for the PSU tweets. I was stupid and childish and way less mature than the students there who did such a great fundraising job.

Queef’s tweets took a different tone earlier, when he yapped like an ill-tempered shih tzu at Penn State students and their charitable efforts, as documented at Total Frat Move.
Shameful face-flops are another distinguishing characteristic for the Queefster.

“Capitalism,” as economic freedom is commonly called, constitutes proof that in the long run, goodness is rewarded. Every other economic system throughout the history of mankind has been based on coercion — i.e., theft and slavery. But capitalism consists of private economic arrangements entered into voluntarily for mutual benefit. If angels had economics, they would be capitalists. This way of doing things has produced previously unimaginable levels of wealth, lifting people out of poverty by the hundreds of millions.
Consequently, the sort of people running our universities hate it:
A textbook used for an “activism” class at the University of Michigan teaches that capitalism should be “overthrown” – claiming “capitalism means waste, poverty, ecological degradation, dispossession, inequality, exploitation, imperialism, war and violence.”
The textbook, “Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox for Revolution,” is assigned as mandatory reading for “Organizational Studies 203: Activism,” a class at the public university that pledges to teach students about the “struggles of movements past, as well as hands-on engagement with the struggles of today.”
The course is unbiased on paper, with its description stating “neither this course, nor its instructional staff, embraces or rejects any ideology, movement, or political project. We will not preach social change from any particular point of view.”
But the book blames the “global slump we are living through” on capitalism, adding it “is the predictable manifestation of a crisis-prone economic system rooted in production for profit rather than for human need. … [F]or the sake of human development and ecological sanity it needs to be overthrown.”
It describes capitalism as morally perverse, and defines it as “a profit-driven economic system rooted in inequality, exploitation, dispossession and environmental destruction.”…
It also touts pull quotes such as “capitalism turns men and women into economic cannibals, and having done so, mistakes economic cannibalism for human nature.”
Here is a pull quote from a book that would serve aspiring activists much better:
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Already capitalism is as much dead as alive under our current quasi-socialist system. Economic freedom lost could take centuries to regain. If liberalism continues to erode liberty, the future will consist of slaves toiling for overlords, so that the wealth they create can be enjoyed by others, just like in the pre-capitalist past. Progressives would call this economic justice.

If life starts to get you down, you can at least be glad you don’t have a pervert propagandist for a parent:
Sally Kohn a political commentator who has appeared on CNN and MSNBC, describes herself as living in the ‘liberal bubble of Park Slope, Brooklyn,’ where ‘yuppies’ want their kids to be happy.
She said: ‘I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too.’
In a lengthy essay in The Washington Post Kohn explained that, she, like most parents simply wants her child to follow in her footsteps.
There is more to the gay marriage blitzkrieg than an attack on Christianity. It is also meant to encourage homosexual adoption. Otherwise, homosexuals would not be able to reproduce directly, and would have to depend on the recruitment facilitated by the general decay of society.
She laments that the little girl doesn’t appear to be a sexual deviant yet — but Kohnhead is still working on it:
‘When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad, we gently remind her that they could be a dad and dad.’
Fox News is among the cable news outfits that have paid this sick woman to spout her twisted opinions on television.
The Daily Mail piece doesn’t mention the little girl’s actual parentage. It is politically incorrect to acknowledge that two homosexuals can’t produce babies.
Also left unclear is whether Ms. Conehead was named after the conehead bush cricket, which “sings [or in Sally’s case, jabbers] for long periods without stopping.”
