Whenever cultural Marxists try to trip you up or bully you with the increasingly meaningless term “racist,” turn it around and ram the word right back down their throats. Here’s one way to do it:
Other situations might call for making it clear that you are not obligated to side with other racial groups against your own even if you are white.

The military may be “apoplectic” over Obama’s recent announcement that his administration has no plan for dealing with the terrifying rise of the Islamic State, but Donna Brazile, Vice Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, is apoplectic that us “hillbillies” outside the Beltway think there should be any plan. She saw fit to retweet this message from a like-minded lib:
I am just outraged that Obama hasn't pasted together an #ISIS "strategy" to satisfy the craven political ravings of hillbillies yet.

As Power Line observes,
That’s dumb, obviously, an expression of the mindless hate that is pretty much all that is left of modern liberalism.
Unfortunately mindless hate — when combined with the lust to dominate others — doesn’t just die of its own uselessness. Unless it is destroyed, it can live on for centuries, as Islam has proven.

The liberal petty tyrannies that collectively are destroying our standard of living start in moonbat strongholds like San Francisco and Los Angeles. From there Democrat politicians expand them to the state level:
On Friday, the state Legislature passed a bill banning the use of plastic bags at California grocery stores, pharmacies, liquor stores and other businesses. If signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, the bill would institute the first statewide ban on plastic bags in the U.S.
I’m guessing it won’t take Governor Moonbeam long to sign a bill that panders to envirokooks at the expense of consumers.
Californians will still be able to use inferior paper bags for now. But the same law dictates that stores must charge you at least 10¢ apiece for them.
Before long, as our progressive rulers progress closer to utopia, we will only be allowed to purchase what we can carry in our hands. Think how happy the polar bears will be.

Here’s what Geraldo Rivera thinks of our Constitution, our country, and most specifically, our indispensable natural right of self-defense:
Like I always say, the 2nd Amendment, the provision that gives every American the right to keep and bear arms, is blind and stupid. In its relentless pimping for the gun industry, the NRA has unleashed an avalanche of deadly weapons on this gun-crazy country. Just as protects access to weapons for cops and hunters, it also protects access to weapons for domestic abusers, mental patients, jerk-offs on the no-fly list, all-around dim bulbs, and now little children.
The inspiration for this diatribe was the sad case of someone foolishly letting a 9-year-old girl fire an Uzi, with predictable tragic consequences.
No wonder Fox News pays Geraldo the big bucks. Few people could pack so much moronic moonbattery into such a short paragraph.
“Pimping for the gun industry.” Please. When liberals get the political leverage to take our cars away for the sake of the environment, no doubt commies like Geraldo will accuse the opposition of pimping for the auto industry. Even this cheesy dope probably understands that there are very important principals involved. But liberals believe they can win any argument by accusing their opponents of participating in a free market economy.
Contrary to Geraldo’s ignorant rant, “domestic abusers” are not generally allowed to own guns. This means that a hostile ex can deprive you of arguably your most fundamental right by telling cops you slapped her — no proof required. But rather than be pleased with this victory, liberals disavow it in their urgent quest for ever more repression.
Presumably a journalist with his own show on the top cable news channel is aware that as a rule unsupervised children aren’t allowed guns either — but the mainstream media’s standards are not high, so it is hard to be sure.
Christine Rousselle is especially appalled by Geraldo’s use of the word “blind” to denounce our constitutional liberties:
While it’s not exactly a shock that someone against guns thinks that the Second Amendment is “stupid,” it is somewhat troubling that in Rivera’s eyes the amendment being “blind” is also a negative quality. The U.S. Constitution applies to every citizen regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sex and intelligence level. It would be thoroughly anti-American to have a set of Constitutional rights only for people who meet certain intelligence (or other arbitrary) qualifications.
Imagine if intelligence were used as a qualification for exercising the right of free speech. Geraldo would be making his living with a mop instead of a microphone.

Under liberal rule, there is no aspect of your life that self-righteous moonbats will not intrude upon and make worse for the sheer love of bullying, usually on nonsensical ideological pretexts. They took away our dish detergent and gave us useless crap that doesn’t get the dishes clean, on the grounds that phosphates are politically incorrect. But it is never enough. Now Obama et al. are coming after the dishwashers themselves:
Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances.
“Climate action plan.” As if the very climate of the earth could be dictated by power-mad statists like Obama. We are living in a lunatic asylum.
Note that elected legislators no longer play a role in imposing unnecessary rules that diminish our lives. It is harder to vote the army of faceless drones comprising the federal bureaucracy out of office.
The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere.
Stimulate the economy by heaping more regulations upon manufacturers? They don’t even try to pass the laugh test.
But industry groups argue the standards, which will apply to both commercial and household appliances, could slow the economy, and that the Energy Department is rushing the new rules while overestimating the savings. Other critics argue the push to regulate household appliances is evidence of a nanny state. …
Business groups say the new rules will be expensive for industry to comply with because it will require them to buy new technologies to develop appliances that emit less energy. That will raise the retail prices of household appliances, they say.
By pushing up the price of appliances, the regulations will hit everyone who isn’t wealthy enough to benefit from Obama’s brand of oligarchical collectivism.
Don’t worry, rich liberals, you will still be able to afford shiny new appliances. The rest of us may have to make do with the old ones a little longer than we had planned.
Pricing some of us out of the new appliance market will of course defeat the supposed environmental purpose of this latest encroachment into our lives. But with green posturing, it’s only the good intentions that count — those and the pure joy liberals receive from imposing their will on others.

Maybe our rulers aren’t deliberately displacing the American population with Third Worlders more likely to support collectivist authoritarianism. Maybe they are just utterly insane:
As part of a legal settlement that will allow some illegal immigrants who deported themselves from Southern California to return to the United States, the federal government has agreed to advertise the settlement on various Mexican and Spanish-language media outlets.
The problem with the self-deportation approach favored by Romney is that liberals will actually go out of their way to reimport the self-deported, as if we had such a shortage of illegal aliens that not a single one could be allowed to slip through the welfare hammock and back into Mexico.
The ACLU filed a class-action lawsuit last year on behalf of eleven illegal immigrants who deported themselves. The settlement reached on Wednesday will only cover “longtime California residents with relatives who are U.S. citizens and… young migrants whose parents brought them into the country illegally” who deported themselves between 2009 and 2013. An ACLU official has indicated that there were nearly 250,000 people who were “deported voluntarily from Southern California between 2009 and 2013″ and estimated to the Los Angeles Times that the “number of repatriations could reach into the hundreds or thousands.”
The US taxpayer, as always, picks up the tab for the left-wing lunacy.
The U.S. government, through ad buys online, in print, on billboards, and on radio stations, will hope to reach “friends and family of the affected class” in Southern California and Mexico. According to the settlement, the federal government will advertise on television channels like Univision, ESPN Deportes, MundoFox, El Universal, and the Univision Deportes Network. They will also partner with People en Espanol and even the Mexico National Football Team in addition to placing billboards “in high population Mexican border cities of Tijuana, Tecate and Mexicali, as well as focusing placements near border crossings.”
The inevitable effect on the attitudes of any Mexicans who would like to venture north to climb aboard the welfare gravy train but worry about getting deported is obvious and probably intended. In light of campaigns like this one, no one could possibly think our rulers take American law, American sovereignty, or American self-interest seriously.

Liberal prophet Al Gore foretold that by now there would be no arctic ice in the summer due to the imaginary global warming menace that he has exploited to make himself a very rich moonbat. Let’s check in to see how his prophecy turned out:
The speech by former US Vice-President Al Gore was apocalyptic. ‘The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff,’ he said. ‘It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.’
Those comments came in 2007 as Mr Gore accepted the Nobel Peace Prize for his campaigning on climate change.
But seven years after his warning, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that, far from vanishing, the Arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in succession – with a surge, depending on how you measure it, of between 43 and 63 per cent since 2012.
To put it another way, an area the size of Alaska, America’s biggest state, was open water two years ago, but is again now covered by ice.
The ice is also thicker than it used to be.
All the while harmless CO2 levels continue to rise sharply, even as temperatures do not, firmly establishing the theory of anthropogenic global warming to be false.
Yet there has been no word on when Gore will return the many $millions he has raked in by selling his global warming snake oil, or when Obama will stop using the debunked hoax as a pretext to seize our wealth, cripple our economy, and subordinate US sovereignty to the malign United Nations.

Dillon Taylor isn’t the only white youth to be shot by the police recently. Nor is Michael Brown the only 18-year-old to apparently commit suicide by cop. There is also the case of Joseph Jennings. Although he is described in the local news report below as a man, darker skin would have qualified him as a “teen”:
A troubled and reportedly unarmed youth is shot 16 times by the police, yet it doesn’t warrant national news, much less a visit by the Attorney General to egg on rioters. The stark contrast with the Michael Brown spectacle only makes sense in light of liberal ideology.
According to the dogma of our ruling class, the universe is centered around the unjust oppression of Persons of Politically Privileged Pigmentation. Since these pampered persons are actually the farthest thing from oppressed, this ideology will collapse under the weight of its own absurdity unless an endless barrage of propaganda is excreted by the establishment to prop it up.
This is why a sociopathic thug like Michael Brown getting himself shot by police is treated as a bigger story than the rise of the Islamic State, and why a white kid getting shot is purposely ignored.

Homosexuals account for a tiny percentage of the American population. Those who want to get “married” probably make up a tiny percentage of homosexuals. So why the big push by the liberals in charge to establish homosexual marriage? Because homosexual marriage isn’t about homosexuals. It is about marriage. More specifically, it is about destroying marriage. The strategy is working:
A judge has ruled that parts of Utah’s law banning polygamy are unconstitutional, effectively decriminalizing the practice, in a victory for the family that appears in the reality TV show ‘Sister Wives’.
Kody Brown, who stars in the TLC reality show with his four wives, filed a lawsuit against the state after leaving Utah fearing prosecution after the programme aired.
Now a federal judge has issued his final ruling in the case that strikes down parts of the state’s anti-polygamy law.
Swiftly down the slippery slope we slide, until the entire concept of marriage disintegrates into farce, and with it the concept of family.
To get an idea of why liberals would want to destroy this cornerstone of human civilization, look to their success in the black community, where liberal welfare policy has discouraged marriage to the extent that 70% of black births occur out of wedlock. There is no single predictor of poverty as powerful as being born into a single-parent household.
Blacks once voted almost exclusively for the party that ended slavery, the GOP. But in the most recent election, Democrats received 93% of the black vote. That’s how Obama got reelected despite losing to Romney by 20% among the whites who until recently comprised virtually the entire US population.
The party of government dependency knows how to socially engineer a society that will support it.

Did the Attorney General of the USA directly pay lowlifes with our money to riot in Ferguson? Probably not, if only because he didn’t need to; helping the media by splashing rhetorical gasoline sufficed. But it’s hard to deny that America has been fundamentally transformed into the sort of banana republic where rumors like this are deemed credible. Wild Bill for America reminds us to keep our eyes open:
