Dispensing With the Fatuous Argument That Reagan and Bush Did What Obama Is About to Do

Obama’s upcoming amnesty maneuver is an attempt to alter the demographics of the USA and still more disastrously to establish his power as above constitutional restriction. Democrats defend it by bleating predictably that it’s okay because everybody does it — those last three words constituting the liberal moral creed. Specifically, they claim Reagan and Bush 41 did the same thing, without any talk of constitutional crisis. Even the left-leaning Atlantic points out four key flaws in their argument:

1) Reagan and Bush acted in conjunction with Congress and in furtherance of a congressional purpose.

In stark contrast, Obama’s amnesty “is intended to overpower and overmaster a recalcitrant Congress.”

2) Reagan and Bush legalized much smaller numbers of people than Obama is said to have in mind.

Scale matters. Few people will get worked up about a handful of immigrants, even if they are here illegally, and are mostly unskilled and highly likely to be a burden on society. But any sane person would object to numbers that will permanently alter the country to make it more like the Third World.

About 140,000 gained legal status through Bush’s order. Between Obama’s unilateral imposition of the failed Dream Act and the power grab he will announce tonight, he will have legalized by executive decree more than twice as many invaders as the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Act, a law passed by Congress that was until now the most massive amnesty in US history.

3) The Reagan-Bush examples are not positive ones.

The 1986 amnesty in particular was a total failure, mainly because it was supposed to be the final amnesty before the border was secured, which to this day has not happened due to liberal perfidy. Naturally it led to still more illegal immigration, just as Obama’s amnesty will do. The only difference is intent. By now we all know what the result of amnesty will be if the border is not secured first.

4) The invocation of the Reagan and Bush cases exemplifies the bad tendency of political discussion to degenerate into an exchange of scripted talking points.

This is particularly characteristic of leftists, who argue mainly by yelling, “Oh yeah, well Republicans are just as bad!” Virtually every argument made by liberals reveals the intellectual rot of relativism. Jesus might have jaywalked, so who is any Christian to say it’s not okay to break the law?

Liberal noise about Reagan and Bush notwithstanding, the real argument is this: Do we want our country — which is mainly characterized by our Constitution and our demographics — to continue to survive, or do we want it “fundamentally transformed” out of existence?

If the answer is the former, it begs a follow-up question: How are we going to save our country from its enemies, who pose a greater threat to it now than ever before?

Another follow-up question: If Obama can get away with this, how do we know he will leave office in 2017?

Students Forced to Endorse Liberal Ideology Before Registering for Classes at UC Davis

Before moonbattery brought America down to its current level, our universities were known as open marketplaces of ideas. Now they take ideological rigidity to the point of self-parody:

The University of California, Davis, requires students to complete an online activity in which they must identify certain words and phrases as “problematic” before they register for classes. Students are prompted to match “I’d hit that,” “I raped that exam,” “bitch,” “pimp,” and “slut” with the correct explanation for why each term should not be uttered.

In case you are studying for the test so as to be able to register at UC Davis,

The correct answer for “I’d hit that” is, “Expression used to indicate interest in having sex with the subject of the statement. This phrase indicates an inherent connection between sex and a physically violent act.”

FIRE informed the university that this opinion test violates the First Amendment. But moonbat educrats disagree.

University administrators maintain the activity is consistent with First Amendment principles because students are still permitted to register even if they get all the questions wrong. But this is merely akin to letting students choose from a range of compelled viewpoints—they are still compelled to express one of those viewpoints.

Not to mention that every student knows what the “right” answer is, if only because the others wouldn’t make any sense, and will likely be afraid of the consequences of not choosing it.

Like the liberal establishment news media, universities are no longer primarily about educating; they are about indoctrinating. UC Davis makes it even more obvious than most.

Parental Permission Required for Students to Read Huck Finn, Farewell to Arms

Kids may not need their parents’ permission to learn about the application of female condoms to anal sex in their fifth-grade classrooms, but truly controversial material is a different matter. I am referring to classical literature:

Earlier this month, teachers in the Highland Park Independent School District [University Park, TX; near Dallas] sent home permission slips for high school juniors in Advanced Placement English courses, The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 16-year-old and 17-year-old college-bound students needed permission to read “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain … as well as “The Scarlet Letter” by Nathaniel Hawthorne and “A Farewell to Arms” by Ernest Hemingway.

Huckleberry Finn includes the unspeakably incorrect N-word. Whatever the particular sins of the other works, you can see where this is heading. Any work of classical American literature deemed offensive by anyone will be restricted and eventually banned, cleaning the decks for a new culture to be engineered by our moonbat overlords.

In the meantime, stripping the curriculum of literature will leave more time to discuss global warming and anal sex.

Newspeak Dictionary Update

The most difficult part about maintaining a vocabulary that is in up-to-the-minute compliance with the liberal ideology of the ruling class is keeping track of words and phrases that are thought crimes to use because they have become politically incorrect. Uttering terms that are deemed to be “code words” for the unspeakable N-word constitutes an especially serious thought crime that could put a career at risk. Be sure to delete the following from your Newspeak Dictionary at once (via Weasel Zippers):

1) Thug
As Richard Sherman pointed out after receiving criticism about his post Super Bowl interview, “It seems like [thug] is the acceptable way of calling someone the n word nowadays. Substituting the word thug doesn’t disguise the negative association with Black people.”

2) Urban/Inner city
The Black community is often referred to as urban or inner city when people are uncomfortable talking about Black people or where they live.

3) State’s rights
During the Civil Rights Movement, politicians used racially coded appeals and words such as “state’s rights” to try and capitalize on the racial anxiety during that time.

4) Welfare and food stamps
When President Lyndon Johnson wanted welfare to include a racial component, it became possible to associate welfare with helping minorities. The same stigma is used with food stamps today. When Newt Gingrich called Obama “the food stamp” president, everyone knew what word he really was using.

5) Law and order
During the Civil Rights Movement, the opposition said that “Law and Order” was needed to handle the racial tension and civil rights protests. In other words, we need to control the Blacks.

6) Cut taxes
Making the poor and people of color sound more threatening, cutting taxes has long been racial code for not using tax payer money to help Black and brown people.

More terms are forbidden on a constant basis. Inexplicably, the words “freedom” and “liberty” have not yet been explicitly designated as racist, but they might be at any time. Be sure to check back often for more updates.

Granny’s Knit Gorilla Results in Visit From Police

A senior citizen thought criminal recently came to the attention of authorities on Airstrip One:

Police shocked a gran when they confronted her over a ‘potentially racially offensive object’ in her window.

Anne Feast, 70, was settled in front of the TV when two officers knocked at the door following a complaint about the ‘black body’ hanging at the front of her bungalow.

The item was a black knitted baby gorilla named Cilla which she had made last year.

Anne explained knitting was her main hobby, she had two suitcases full of her creations and regularly changed her window display to entertain passersby.

But one of these passersby had deemed her baby gorilla “offensive,” and therefore had reported her to the authorities.

That’s the kind of country political correctness has made of once great Britain. But it could be worse. At least the police let her keep the gorilla in her window. You can see why even Britain ranks 11 places ahead of the USA in personal freedom. Try hanging a knitted gorilla in your window here and you would have Eric Holder’s Department of Social Justice to deal with.

Walmart Security Guard Fired for Detaining Shoplifter

To truly become fundamentally transformed into a population ideally suited to be ruled by the liberal masterminds who run the media and through it the government, we will have to shed all the characteristics in which Americans once took pride, including individual initiative. Bringing this about is a task too large for even the Lightworker Barack Hussein Obama himself. But he gets help from many corners — even from Walmart:

A security guard at a Fort Myers [Florida] Walmart was caught on video tackling a suspected shoplifter and holding her down.

That employee [Daniel Bresson] has since been fired for how he handled the situation.

Walmart confirmed the employee no longer works for the company – and the company spokesperson says it is regrettable that the situation was handled poorly.

They say associates are advised to disengage when an altercation becomes physical and let authorities handle it.

I would have thought a security guard was an authority. But since he does not actually represent Big Government, he is duty bound to watch docilely as the store is looted. Let this be a lesson to you if you are ever tempted to help uphold property rights or public order.

The security guard found nearly $200 worth of stolen items on Tamara James after chasing her down. But that’s nothing compared to what she will probably be awarded if she can muster the initiative to call a lawyer.

Establishing Tomorrow’s Sexual Norms Today in Antarctica

Progressives have seized on observations of penguins engaging in homosexual deviancy as proof that it must be normal and healthy, bizarrely choosing wild animals as arbiters of propriety, normalcy, and morality. This has even inspired a children’s book that is used by government schools to brainwash little kids into embracing sexual perversion. Hopefully this revelation doesn’t inspire more children’s books:

Many years ago, British explorer George Murray Levick caught Adélie penguins engaging in all sorts of debauchery, such as necrophilia, sexual coercion and sexual abuse of chicks. Now, scientists have observed fur seals trying to have sex with penguins. …

This bizarre sexual behavior was actually first documented in 2006 when scientists spotted a fur seal trying to copulate with a king penguin on Marion Island, a remote and mostly barren island in the sub-Antarctic. …

Upon returning to the island to continue wildlife observations, scientists observed the strange act a further three times, which took them by surprise to say the least. …

As described in the journal Polar Biology, the team observed young male Antarctic fur seals sexually coercing (using force to achieve mating) king penguins on three separate occasions. The gender of the penguins was unknown…

All four acts observed so far seemed to follow a similar pattern where the seal chases, captures and then mounts the penguin. The seal then attempted to copulate with the penguin several times, with each effort lasting around five minutes. …

Like most birds, penguins don’t have external genitalia and instead possess an opening called a cloaca. They mate by pressing these organs together in what is known as a “cloacal kiss,” in which the sperm is transferred to the female. Traumatically for the penguins, some of the seals were thought to have successfully penetrated the victims’ cloacas during the act as blood was observed around the area afterwards. Although seals often catch and consume penguins, in all but one of the acts the seal let the penguin go afterward. After the most recently documented incident, however, the seal killed and ate the penguin. …

Why fur seals are engaging in these unusual activities is puzzling. … Although the harassment is difficult to explain, the possible increase in frequency seems to suggest that it may be becoming a learned behavior on the island.

Maybe the seals let liberals write their children’s books.

Elizabeth Vega: Looter Looted

Elizabeth Vega has been a busy moonbat lately:

Vega is one of the Ferguson protest leaders. She protested at sports venues and attempted a banner drop. She co-led the St Louis Symphony interruption, was arrested at the pumpkin smashing, yelled at the St Louis Post Dispatch protest, and helped block traffic with her freakshow in Clayton [Monday].

She was probably busy trying to intimidate the authorities into railroading a police officer on behalf of the ultra-left as one of her fellow lowlifes made off with her car:

Elizabeth-Vega

When she devoted her energies to encouraging hood rats to riot and loot, it probably didn’t occur to her that she might get looted herself. Maybe the evil racist cops she evidently hates so much will help find her car; no one else will. Or maybe she will just write it off and console herself that the car was stolen in the name of The People.

Ferguson Organizer Wants White People to Be Afraid

Osagyefo Sekou is a kooky cleric involved in training other moonbats to wreak havoc if Darren Wilson is not indicted for the crime of defending himself against a person of politically privileged pigmentation. Not much of the noise erupting from his mouth is worth listening to, but this is an exception:

“[W]e’re not going to get change in this society unless white people are just a little bit afraid.”

His fellow community organizer Barack Hussein Obama would agree. That’s why Obama has been meeting with the ultra-radical groups planning to unleash mayhem if they don’t get the indictment, egging them on to “stay on course.”

This isn’t about whether Wilson acted in self-defense; progressives clearly couldn’t care less if he is innocent. This is explicitly about race. We are witnessing a one-sided race war. The only whites taking part in it are self-hating liberals on the side of warring non-whites.

White people should be afraid all right, along with everyone else who has a stake in this civilization. The federal government and the media are on this guy’s side:

Liberal War on Reality Features Men Giving Birth

What a bizarre and sickening freak show progressives are reducing Western Civilization to:

54 men have given birth in Australia in the last year alone, according to figures released by Medicare. A number of people identifying as men have also accessed abortions, the figures revealed. The trend for transsexual men to give birth has been growing ever since the first birth to a ‘father’, American transsexual Thomas Beatie, in 2007, according to the MailOnline.

Obviously no man ever gave birth. Yet we read that men do, because in their arrogant and fanatical drive to impose their sick ideology on every conceivable aspect of existence, liberals have established that to be a man or a woman you merely have to call yourself one, physical reality be damned.

By the same token, you should be able to declare yourself an aardvark, with the expectation that people will treat you exactly as if you really were an aardvark.

Medicare in Australia recently decided to allow people to elect their own gender on documents instead of being forced to identify with the sex they were born. The change has revealed a trend for transgender men to keep their female reproductive organs and give birth. Following Beatie’s lead, men in America soon followed suit, with Beatie himself going on to have two more children in the last seven years.

“Beatie himself.” Even Breitbart is going along with this literal insanity. Beatie is a woman — freakish in the extreme, having undergone grotesque treatments to make her look like a man, but a woman nonetheless.

One artificial man who recently gave birth in Australia was in the “55–64 age range.” Let’s hope the kid turns out okay physically, and is promptly put up for adoption. Otherwise its chances for a happy childhood and normal life are nil.

The progressive contempt for objective reality is not limited to pandering to transsexuals. An obvious example is global warming. With more than a week to go before Thanksgiving, 50% of the country is covered in snow. The cold is setting records. Yet the Obama Regime defiantly plans to ignore the Constitution so as to cripple the economy in the name of obviously nonexistent global warming.

Since in their minds they control reality itself, it doesn’t matter that falling temperatures have debunked Al Gore’s pseudoscientific theories. Just change the name of the hoax to “climate change” to placate idiots and the jihad against industrialization can continue, the pointy-headed masterminds secure in their unsubstantiated faith that one day their climate models will prove true.

The big lesson from George Orwell’s 1984 is that liberty is the freedom to say that 2 + 2 = 4. That is the key to resisting liberalism. Once you let them tell you that men give birth, that all weather is global warming caused by insufficient taxes and regulations, that privileged special interest groups are oppressed, that it is normal to be a pervert, that freedom is unjust, or that 2 + 2 is something other than 4, the bad guys have beaten you.

Chicago Public Schools Teach 5th-Graders About “Safe” Anal Sex

It is absolutely essential that education be pried loose from the claws of Big Government and Big Unions. Otherwise children will continue to be educated by liberals. For a graphic example of what this entails, refer to Chicago, the political cesspools of which spawned our Community Organizer in Chief:

Parents at a Near West Side school say they are “shocked” and “horrified” after viewing a new sex education curriculum intended for fifth-graders, saying the way the information is presented is over the top and not age-appropriate.

During report card pickup Wednesday at Andrew Jackson Language Academy, the school hosted several parent workshops, including an afternoon meeting on Chicago Public Schools’ newest sex ed curriculum.

At one point, parents could view materials intended for students. A binder labeled as the curriculum for students in fifth grade touted the benefits of female condoms for extending sex and increasing pleasure and encouraged using lubrication.

Fifth graders are typically 10 or 11 years old.

An additional page in the binder instructs students how to use female condoms for anal sex. …

A CPS teacher who did not want to be named confirmed that the new sex ed curriculum was implemented in fifth-grade classes at her North Side school during the last school year.

The slides below indicate what stratospheric property taxes have been paying progressives to ram down the throats of 10-year-olds:

Fired, Threatened for Posting Pictures of DHS Vehicles Near Ferguson

Whatever Obama is up to regarding the riots planned for Ferguson, if you see any federal vehicles in the area, don’t do anything foolish like post pictures of them online or you could lose your job:

Mark Paffrath was leaving work from the Drury Plaza Hotel in Chesterfield, Missouri, Thursday when he noticed something unnerving — about 100 Department of Homeland Security vehicles in the parking garage, Argus News Now reported.

Paffrath snapped a couple of photos and took a short video that he uploaded to his Facebook page…

Shortly after arriving to work on Friday, Paffrath told News Now he was called into the office of hotel general manager Jeff Barker and told to remove the photos and video. Paffrath did — and then finished his shift.

But just 30 minutes after Paffrath arrived to work Saturday, Jim Bohnert, director of security for Drury Hotels Company, told Paffrath he had been fired, News Now reported. His Facebook posts apparently cost the hotel chain a $150,000 contract with the Department of Homeland Security, the outlet added.

As if that wasn’t enough, Paffrath also claimed Bohnert told him, ”[Y]ou’re a terrorist and you have dishonorably served your country by posting the photos and video.” …

Paffrath said Bohnert concluded their conversation by saying “if you repost the photos and video you will have the federal government knocking on your door and you will be incarcerated.”

Paffrath is a Navy vet who served in the Middle East. It would be emblematic of Hope & Change if he were to end up in some federal prison while Obama’s base runs wild in the streets, looting and burning other’s people’s property under the inscrutable gaze of federal agents.
