Whether deliberately or not, Muslims and their fellow travelers facilitate the next bloody Islamic terror attack on New York by using political correctness to compel authorities to put their guard down. Screeching about “profiling” often serves this purpose. Here a pair of enterprising bloggers managed to capture an incident of profiling on video:
As you might have guessed, the whole production was a lame hoax. Via The Smoking Gun:
[T]he viral video is a sham, a staged production aimed to go viral and pile up views and YouTube channel subscriptions for its young creators, Brooklynites Adam Saleh and Sheikh Akbar, who get a piece of the revenue generated by ads that run before their videos play.
The phony cop’s performance was particularly unconvincing. Yet it duped the willful idiots at Huffpo:
According to The Huffington Post, the video provides a “small glimpse into the ugly world of racial profiling.” The news site later updated its piece to indicate that the clip’s authenticity could not be verified, and that NYPD officials are reviewing the video.

Long-time Moonbattery.com readers will fondly remember Scott T of Leading Malaysian Neocon, who provided many excellent tips, and Zack Rawsthorne, whose fine Diversity Lane cartoons often appeared here as open thread graphics. Both are back, having teamed up to produce That’s Racist, a countermoonbat book for young adults.
From the book description at Indiegogo:
This book is an honest but lighthearted story for young readers, about the unintended consequences of focusing too much on skin colour. After all, when we continue to treat people differently – whether in better or worse ways – isn’t that just racism in another form? Isn’t positive discrimination still, y’know, discrimination?
Here’s a sample page (click the pic for full size):
This is just the sort of guerilla DIY project that needs to succeed for conservatives to challenge the cultural hegemony of the liberal establishment. The book will only see print if enough money can be raised through crowdfunding (otherwise contributions will be refunded). Check out the Indiegogo page to see the generous perks for contributors.
In biology, they would be known as parasites. In politics, they are called bureaucrats. They live well at our expense. Not all of them even pretend to do anything that would justify their lavish salaries and benefits. Those accused of misconduct often don’t even have to show up at the office:
Tens of thousands of federal workers are being kept on paid leave for at least a month — and often for longer stretches that can reach a year or more — while they wait to be punished for misbehavior or cleared and allowed to return to work, government records show.
During a three-year period that ended last fall, more than 57,000 employees were sent home for a month or longer. The tab for these workers exceeded $775 million in salary alone. …
While the employees stayed home, they not only collected paychecks but also built their pensions, vacation and sick days and moved up the federal pay scale.
There are rules to prevent this obvious waste. But rules don’t apply to the government these days.
The extensive use of administrative leave continues despite government personnel rules that limit paid leave for employees facing discipline to “rare circumstances” in which the employee is considered a threat. The long-standing rules were written in an effort to curb waste and deal quickly with workers accused of misconduct.
Note that these employees are not merely useless, like typical bureaucrats. Usually they have been banished from the office because their behavior makes them worse than useless. Most of them deserve to be fired. That would force them to work in the private sector, providing the constructive labor that generates the wealth Big Government squanders on generous salaries for barnacles.
Often federal bureaucrats on paid leave fill their empty days by heading for the local marina, causing further trouble by clinging to the hulls of boats:
The time has come to scrape them off.

The USA isn’t the only country undergoing what Obama referred to as “fundamental transformation.” The liberal ruling class has been importing massive numbers of welfare colonists from the Muslim world to populate slums, with the ultimate goal of transforming Sweden into a nonwhite country. Since the entire nation has not gone insane, some Swedes aren’t happy about it. These Swedes are marginalized and made to shut up:
A new law will come into effect in Sweden after Christmas 2014, that will allow people to be prosecuted for criticizing immigration or politician’s unwillingness to tackle the issue.
The Constitutional Committee’s report has been voted for in parliament, seen in a letter from the Parliamentary Offices. Member of Parliament Andrew Norlén, member of the Constitutional Committee, has been pushing the issue and he says it will rapidly become a deterrent.
“I do not think it takes very many prosecutions before a signal is transmitted in the community that the internet is not a lawless country, the sheriff is back in town” Norlén said during a one-sided ‘debate’ on the issue in Swedish parliament.
If hordes of Muslims tried to storm the Swedish border brandishing scimitars, presumably someone would meet them with force so that their country might continue to exist. But if the invaders are imported by their own quisling government, people will not only submit to the invasion, but will agree to fund it. Generous welfare programs leave the Muslims free to devote their time to breeding at several times the rate of the native population.
Since a similar process is being used to erase America, we can expect similar restrictions on speech, the moment changing demographics make them politically feasible to inflict.

Man in the street interviews constantly remind us how unengaged Americans tend to be regarding politics, which is the best explanation for how Obama could have been elected. But even during football season they are not too oblivious to recognize the unfolding consequences:
A devastating new Politico poll reveals voters believe America has spun off its axis and is “out of control.”
“An overwhelming majority of voters in the most competitive 2014 elections say it feels as if events in the United States are ‘out of control’ and expressed mounting alarm about terrorism, anxiety about Ebola and harsh skepticism of both political parties only three weeks before the Nov. 4 midterms,” reports Politico.
The poll, which surveyed states and districts in the most competitive congressional races, found that 64% of Americans believe “things in the U.S. feel like they are out of control right now.”
Top concerns include the Islamic State, which Obama not long ago dismissed as a “J.V. team,” and his signature catastrophe, ObamaCare.
At times like these people tend to want a grownup at the wheel, and that would rule out the Democrat in literally every election. But there is still hope for the moonbats. According to the poll, George W. Bush beat Obama by only 3% on the question of who was “more effective at managing the basic functions of the federal government,” despite Obama’s effectiveness being far below what would be required of a night manager at a 7-Eleven. Eight years of relentless anti-Bush propaganda certainly did its work. The liberal establishment should still be able to get the herd turned around and headed for the cliff again, if not in time for next month, then for 2016.

We watch in horror as Obama imports Ebola vectors from West Africa and prepares to decree amnesty for the tens of millions of Third Worlders already in the country illegally. But we need to remember to watch the other hand:
The ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee took the Obama administration to task Friday for its “irresponsible” plan to allow as many as 100,000 Haitians to immigrate to the U.S. without a visa.
Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said the administration’s Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program — which will allow thousands of Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits — is “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”
“Which countries are next on President Obama’s list?” Mr. Grassley said. “Will there by medical screenings before entry? Will work permits be granted automatically? How will this affect American workers?”
The likely answers: West African countries, no, yes, harmfully.
The point of course is to make America less like America and more like Haiti. Importing enough largely welfare-dependent Third Worlders of a race unlikely ever to fully assimilate into America society will of course be a boon to the party that maintains power largely by confiscating money from whites and redistributing it to nonwhites in return for their votes.
There is no question of this being good for our country, or even of it being intended to be good for our country. No civilization can survive if it allows itself to be ruled by people who do not mean it well.

The virtually unreported epidemic of black on white mob violence that has been plaguing the country for the past few years is particularly disturbing when you consider that mobs of thugs are easily exploited. Hitler famously put such mobs to strategic use during his rise to power. As Hope & Change continues to deteriorate, Obama et al. may resort to this tactic.
It’s not as if the thought would never occur to them. Representatives of the Department of Social Justice were sent to Florida during the Trayvon Martin spectacle to lend logistical support to racial arsonist Al Sharpton. Eric Holder himself appeared in Ferguson to fan the flames after the Michael Brown shooting. Despite his total ineptitude in most other regards, the Community Organizer in Chief ought to have no problem directing racially bloodthirsty mobs against particular targets — considering that an untrained bus driver can do it:
A black Baltimore bus driver organized a mob of 20 black people to assault a white family of three on her bus, which they did with gusto and pepper spray. All the while, the other black passengers hooted and hollered in encouragement.
All while the bus driver waited for the beating to finish so the attackers could get back on the bus. With her thanks.
The bus company didn’t give a darn. And it took Baltimore police two months before they even investigated it.
The appalling event occurred last June. A white couple made the mistake of escorting their 9-year-old son home from school on a city bus. The driver asked them to move to the back, but they couldn’t, because there was no room. This enraged the female driver, who showered them with foul-mouthed threats and abuse.
At that point, other black passengers started yelling for the bus driver to remove the white family from the bus. One of passengers urged the bus driver to use her phone and “call them up.”
Who was “them”? The family discovered two stops later, when a large group of students from Mergenthaler Vo-Tech and Academy for College and Career Exploration boarded the bus.
The victims were standing next to the bus driver and they heard her tell the newly-boarded students: “I don’t care where they get off. You handle that (Bleep) and I’ll take care of you. I’ll wait for you.”
Soon after, the family of three left the bus, along with the 20 black students who had just boarded it.
They beat and pepper-sprayed all three members of the family, choking and banging their heads on the ground — all while the bus driver waited and watched. …
Charging documents show the bus driver watched the assault and yelled several times, “Yeah, that’s what you get.” After the teens were finished with the beating, they got back on the bus, and the bus drove away, offering the victims no assistance, police said.
The progressive term for events like this is “social justice.”
Baltimore was part of America once. I wouldn’t advise setting foot there now. The rest of the country is following close behind.

What do you call it when a ruling class takes deliberate action to reduce the native population relative to foreign populations?
Political correctness is genocide. The objective is to eradicate Western Civilization, so that the Third World will cover the entire planet. This will allow the ruling class to maintain the level of total power characteristic of autocratic Third World countries.

Dan Joseph waded into the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Annual Conference to see whether the hard-leftists taking part would admit that Obama is a socialist. Most of them wouldn’t. More surprisingly, most of them didn’t even seem to know what a socialist is, despite likely being socialists themselves:
Imagine the looks of confusion Joseph would have received if he had asked whether Obama is a coercive redistributionist.
On a tip from The Only Other Conservative in Seattle.
Here is a story unlikely to make a big splash in the liberal establishment news media:
There is a “moral bankruptcy” that’s settled into leadership of America in the White House and throughout Washington, D.C., Dr. Alveda King—the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.—said in an interview Friday morning.
“All of our leaders—or many of our leaders—are just morally bankrupt right now,” King said when asked if President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder have helped or hurt the black community in America. “They’re not calling on God. We still stay ‘In God We Trust’ and ‘One Nation Under God’ but we’re not practicing that. We need to call on God. There’s a moral bankruptcy in this country and we really need to come back to God.”
Dr. King is part of an effort that will be announced publicly early next week by various conservative black, Hispanic and Tea Party leaders to reach out to the black community and get them engaged in an effort to help urban centers reject big government in favor of smaller, limited government. The project, called “Restore The Dream 2014,” includes other black leaders like TheTeaParty.net’s Niger Innis, FreedomWorks’ the Rev. C.L. Bryant, radio host Wayne Dupree, Conservative Campaign Committee chairman Lloyd Marcus, Conservative Review president Deneen Borelli, columnist Star Parker, former U.N. Commission on Civil Rights ambassador Ken Blackwell, and others.
No one is making out any worse under Hope & Change than blacks.
“The data is going to indicate black people lost out in every single leading economic category during the Obama years,” King told Breitbart News, noting that liberal commentator Tavis Smiley agrees with her and that they’re not trying to “demonize” or “cast aspersions” on Obama, but the truth needs to be told. “That’s terrible. There’s nothing that’s been done to enhance our lives but there’s all sorts of things that were done to [give us stuff] like free access to abortion, free birth control in a healthcare clinic. But that’s nothing that’s going to help us economically, intellectually, physically health-wise and otherwise—there’s nothing being done for us. Black home ownership is 31 percent less than the rest of the country. Poverty rates have increased from 12 percent to 16.1 percent. Income for blacks is $20,000 less than the national average. Thirty-five percent of young blacks are out of work.”
Yet liberals have been able to reduce most blacks to a brainwashed voting block willing to sacrifice their own best interests to a ruling class that exploits them as tools. This is why gaining control of the media and education establishments was so crucial for progressives.

They say the Ebola epidemic could have started due to the quaint West African custom of eating bushmeat — namely, infected bats. Since the Obama Administration seems to be doing everything else possible to ensure that the virus infects Americans (refusing to stop letting West Africans into the country, sending over troops without proper protective equipment to bring back the disease, even planning to deliberately import infected foreigners for treatment at our massive expense, etc.), we may soon see an addition to Michelle Obama’s school lunch menu that will help expand our multicultural horizons:

Perplexed as to why the liberal establishment would devote so much energy to imposing homosexual “marriage” through judicial decree while using its control of the media to brainwash the herd into going along with it, when the country is facing so many serious problems? This ought to clarify matters:
Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for a temporary restraining order Friday to stop officials in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, from forcing two ordained Christian ministers to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples.
City officials told Donald Knapp that he and his wife Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, are required to perform such ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines. The city claims its “non-discrimination” ordinance requires the Knapps to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies now that the courts have overridden Idaho’s voter-approved constitutional amendment that affirmed marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
For refusing to perform a blasphemous parody of a marriage, the Knapps face up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine for each day that they don’t betray their faith.
The “gay rights” blitzkrieg is approaching its end game. With progressives, the issue is never the issue; the issue is always power. Christianity has traditionally served as a major bulwark against tyranny. Therefore, it needs to be destroyed, so that pointy-headed masterminds will be better able to impose their repugnant concept of utopia.
There could be no better means of destroying Christianity than forcing ministers to betray their faith.
This is not about “rights” for sexual deviants. If the Knapps are imprisoned, it will be for exactly the same reason Stalin sent priests and nuns to die in his gulags.
We’ll soon know if the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious freedom still applies in Hopey Changey America.

Supposedly we don’t need freedom, because if we give it up, the authorities will keep us safe from all threats. Ebola has certainly ripped the lid off this lie. Not only has Big Government deliberately facilitated the importation of Ebola, it has prevented the early diagnosis that could be life-saving:
The Dallas hospital that sent home Thomas Eric Duncan the first time he showed up at the emergency room has a machine that could have detected Ebola in less than an hour – but doctors were barred from using it because of federal regulations.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital has treated three Ebola patients – Duncan, who died last week, and two of its own nurses who contracted the disease from Duncan. In each case, the hospital had to wait up to two days for confirmation that that patients were infected with the virus.
The Associated Press has also reported the medical records reveal nurses didn’t wear full protective gear while treating Duncan for two days while they awaited the results of his Ebola test.
The device is cheap by medical standards at $39,000. But lives were endangered as it sat unused because the bureauweenies at the FDA haven’t gotten around to approving it for detecting Ebola. Somebody at BioFire Diagnostics, which manufactures the device, needs to grease the wheels with a donation to the Democrat Party. Maybe they could repurpose some of the $240 million the federal government gave them to “hone the device to detect Ebola and other deadly pathogens,” which it apparently does quite well.
Or maybe the device isn’t necessary. We all know that the practice of taking passengers’ temperature is a joke, since Ebola vectors may not have a fever yet when they set off to avail themselves of free healthcare at our expense, or they may reduce their fevers with Tylenol. But officials were able to instantly determine that a passenger from Nigeria who vomited uncontrollably and then died on a flight into JFK did not have Ebola after only a cursory examination. They are encouraged to share their impressive expertise with others.

Among the most appalling examples of the corruption and abuse of power that now prevail at what once was known as the Justice Department is a case you may not have heard of, because the mainstream media is still carrying Obama’s water by ignoring whatever it can get away with ignoring. The New York Observer is among the very few publications to acknowledge fraudulent litigation brought by the Injustice Department against a lumber company accused of starting a wildfire in California…
In what was dubbed the “Moonlight Fire” case, the tables are now turned. The defendants have discovered new evidence and filed a stunning motion. The new evidence and disclosures are being taken seriously by the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California—as they should be. In a shocking action, Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.
Sierra Pacific Industries and other defendants were compelled to pay $55 million to the United States over a period of five years and transfer 22,500 acres of land to settle massive litigation brought against them by the United States alleging that they caused a 2007 fire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California. Sierra Pacific has always maintained that the fire started elsewhere and that the state and federal investigators and Department attorneys lied.
Fortunately it looks like enough residual rule of law has survived Hope & Change that this Michael Brown–style strong-arm robbery will fail.
Judge England, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution. To avoid any appearance of partiality, he has referred the case to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to appoint a judge from outside the Eastern District to handle the case going forward. Judge Kozinski has excoriated prosecutors for failing to meet their legal and ethical obligations.
The Department of Social Justice stands accused of presenting false evidence, tampering with witnesses, and failing to disclose the lead investigator’s direct financial interest in the case.
The unethical conduct occurred not just with the approval but at the insistence of those higher up the ladder of a department that has become thoroughly debased under Obama’s rule.
The Sacramento Bee reported on the Defendant’s filing. Indeed, the Defendants’ motion informs us that a former Assistant United States Attorney came forward and disclosed that he believes that he was removed from the original prosecution by “his boss, David Shelledy, chief of the civil division in the United States Attorney’s office,” because he “rebuffed” pressure to “engage in unethical conduct as a lawyer.” Of course, like other former prosecutors who were unethical, Mr. Shelledy is to receive Attorney General Holder’s highest award for excellence—[last] week.
No doubt Shelledy’s apparent thuggery is justified by historical injustice. Or whatever.
The defendants also reveal that another former federal prosecutor, Eric Overby, left the Moonlight Fire prosecution team also, stating: “It’s called the Department of Justice. It’s not called the Department of Revenue.” According to the motion, Mr. Overby told defense counsel that in his entire career, “I’ve never seen anything like this. Never.”
I have. Right here:
If Michael Brown had managed to kill Darren Wilson without getting shot first, he could replace Eric Holder without any noticeable difference in the way the Injustice Department is run.
The Moonlight Fire corruption is nothing novel for the Observer either:
This is part of a disturbing and rapidly increasing pattern of abuses by this Department of Justice to line government coffers or redistribute the wealth to its political allies—using its overwhelming litigation might and federal agencies as a tool of extortion and wealth redistribution.
Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation” is a looting spree that will last until America collapses into a dysfunctional Third World hellhole, or until the system has been scoured clean of progressives and their greedy, corrupt, coercion-based ideology.

Via iOwnTheWorld.com, on a tip from G. Fox.
What could be more emblematic of the Cloward–Piven presidency of the prodigal community organizer who has already run up as much debt as all previous presidents through Bill Clinton combined than the Deadbeat in Chief having his credit card rejected?
Obama revealed Friday that his credit card was rejected when he went to pay for his meal at a New York restaurant during the U.N. General Assembly gathering last month.
“Turns out I guess I don’t use it enough,” so the payment wouldn’t go through, Mr. Obama explained.
Obama paying his own way is certainly a rare occurrence.
Too bad no responsible person is in a position to put a hold on the federal government’s credit. The skyrocketing deficit indicates that Obama and his collaborators have no intention of making good on the massive debt. A freeze on Big Government’s credit spending would save future generations from the gross injustice of having to spend their entire lives paying the bill for our indulgence in moonbattery.
