Trayvon Martin has been immortalized in music by the Ivy League’s Anthony D.J. Branker. From a story that ran Wednesday:
Branker, who celebrates his 25th anniversary this year as founder and director of the program in jazz studies at Princeton, has composed a piece of music that draws on Martin’s story, which he said “moved me to the core.”
“Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet,” written in honor of the 17-year-old who was shot in 2012 in Sanford, Fla., by neighborhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman, will receive its world premiere tomorrow.
The Princeton University Orchestra and the University Concert Jazz Ensemble will perform the work on a program that also includes Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9, Beethoven’s “Egmont” overture and a world premiere of “Teatro di Strada” by David Sanford. Conducted by Michael Pratt, with senior J.J. Warshaw leading the Beethoven, the concert will take place in the Richardson Auditorium and will be repeated Friday. …
The goal, [Wanker] said, is to pay tribute to Martin, as well as others who have been victims of racial violence.
For anyone just returning from a long trip to outer space, here is a little background on Trayvon Martin. He was a vicious lowlife whose lifestyle featured “suspected involvement with burglary, PCP-like drug cocktails, and/or drug dealing.” He was shot in an act of desperation while in the process of bashing neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman’s brains out against the sidewalk. There is zero evidence that his killing had anything whatsoever to do with race, nor is there any reason to suspect it, given the background of Zimmerman, who had championed a homeless black man and who mentored black youth.
Turning a violent punk who died while attempting to commit murder into a martyr begs the question: a martyr to what?
The disgusting sacrilege of mixing a jazz tribute to him in with great works by the masters Beethoven and Dvorak suggests an answer: a martyr to our civilization’s decline.

Stay away from your TV this weekend if you have a low tolerance for saccharine. As you know by now, former communist terrorist and President of South Africa Nelson Mandela is dead. The liberal establishment has been waiting for decades to conduct his memory to the peak of Mount Olympus.
Although Mandela led a brutal gang of socialist revolutionaries best known for the practice of necklacing; allied himself with a rogue’s gallery of terrorists and maniacs, including Fidel Castro, Yasser Arafat, and Muammar Gaddafi; and also threw in with the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War, he was far from the worst leader Sub-Saharan Africa has produced. When he took power, he behaved for the most part responsibly, refraining from aggressively repressing whites, in stark contrast to the goons who run South Africa now. No one in his right mind would want to live under him, but he looks great in comparison to racist looters like Jacob Zuma, Robert Mugabe, and Barack Obama.
That Obama is no Nelson Mandela is evidenced by Obama’s shameless attempts to hitch his horse to Mandela’s wagon. Try not to gag:

— The White House (@WhiteHouse) December 5, 2013
The truly clueless may believe Mandela was imprisoned in that cell for peacefully protesting. Actually, he was in jail for terrorist acts that legally qualified him for the death penalty.
Mandela’s record was mixed: he was neither a demon nor an angel. So why do the comfy white liberals who paved his way to power by putting the screws to South Africa worship him?
To answer that question, first we have to answer another: What happens now that his moderating presence is gone?
This report from June indicates what South Africa has to look forward to:
Documented cases of farm killings make for gruesome reading, with children murdered along with their parents, one family suffocated with plastic bags and countless brutal rapes of elderly women and young children.
These horrors have prompted Genocide Watch — a respected American organisation which monitors violence around the world — to claim that the murders of ‘Afrikaner farmers and other whites is organised by racist communists determined to drive whites out of South Africa, nationalise farms and mines, and bring on all the horrors of a communist state’.
Indeed, a disturbing number of whites are terrified that Mandela’s passing will lead to an outpouring of violence from black South Africans…
Current president Jacob Zuma has been filmed singing a cheerful song about shooting whites. Savage attacks on white farmers are commonplace and rarely punished. Affirmative Action has been taken to such grotesque extremes that the government imports workers from Cuba when no qualified blacks can be found. Yet the situation is likely to get even worse.
Alongside [Zuma as he sang about killing whites] was a notorious character called Julius ‘Juju’ Malema, a former leader of the ANC youth league, who is now Zuma’s bitter enemy and is reportedly planning to launch a new political party after Mandela’s death. …
Malema is popular among young blacks, and has also been an enthusiastic singer of Kill The Boer and another song called Bring Me My Machine-Gun.
Polls this week showed a huge surge in support among young black South Africans for his policies, which he says will ignore reconciliation, and fight for social justice in an ‘onslaught against [the] white male monopoly’.
With chilling echoes of neighbouring Zimbabwe, where dictator Robert Mugabe launched a murderous campaign to drive white farmers off the land in 2000, Malema wants all white-owned land to be seized without compensation, along with nationalisation of the country’s lucrative mines. …
Enthusiastically backed by Winnie Mandela, Nelson’s second wife — who is still hugely popular in South Africa despite her suspected role in several murders — Malema is a charismatic figure who once threw a BBC correspondent out of a press conference for asking about his wealthy lifestyle.
His words have done nothing to allay the fears of white communities, some of which have taken extreme measures to protect themselves.
One such measure was the establishment of Kleinfontein, a heavily guarded white-only community of 1,000 souls in Pretoria. Sixty murders occur per day in South Africa; but “there is no armed robbery, murder or rape in Kleinfontein.”
Tiny pockets of civilization like Kleinfontein are puddles left behind by a dying ocean. A few last fish will flop in the mud, gasping for breath, as the puddles dry out. Then there will be nothing.
Don’t take my word for it. Look to Zimbabwe, which has gone from the Breadbasket of Africa under white rule to a socialist slave state prominently featuring sextillion percent inflation and widespread starvation.
Nelson Mandela was a bridge from South Africa’s prosperous Western past to its nightmarish Third World future. It is the first major Western country to die of political correctness. It won’t be the last.
Nelson Mandela personified the death of South Africa as a Western nation. That’s why liberal establishmentarians don’t just tip their hats to him for not being as awful as most Third World socialists, but fall to their knees in reverence. They are worshiping our demise.
In this respect, maybe Obama is in Mandela’s league after all.

Obama has come clean on Onyango Obama (a.k.a. his Uncle Omar), the liquor store manager and convicted drunk driver who stayed in the country on an illegal basis for 43 years, repeatedly lying to authorities, before a judge finally ruled that our laws don’t apply to him. At first Obama claimed through spokesmen that he had never met his uncle, despite a landlord backing up Onyango’s report that the aspiring Moonbat Messiah had lived with him for three weeks. But now the Prevaricator in Chief has come clean:
The White House said Thursday that President Barack Obama briefly lived with an uncle who faced deportation from the United States, correcting its previous statements that the president had never met Onyango Obama.
The 69-year-old, Kenyan-born half-brother of Obama’s estranged father was granted permission this week to stay in the U.S. after ignoring a deportation order two decades ago. The uncle is also known as Omar Obama.
White House spokesman Jay Carney said that when the case first arose, officials looked for records of a meeting but never directly asked the president.
That is, his spokesman is now lying about Obama having lied.
No worries. CNN commentator LZ Granderson says it’s okay for Obama to lie, because “we can deal with the lies that President Obama tells us.”
But maybe Obama wasn’t lying this time after all. From his own boasts, we know he was a heavy drug user in his youth. Would it be racist to suggest that partying with Uncle Omar got so out of hand he blacked out the whole episode?

George Washington University law professor and MSNBC regular Jonathan Turley is no right-winger. But Obama scares him — and for the right reasons. From his testimony at a congressional hearing on Tuesday, after Turley was asked by Rep Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) how Obama’s “unilateral modification” of laws passed by Congress “affect both the balance of power between the political branches and the liberty interests of the American people”:
The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he’s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid. That is the concentration of power in every single branch.
This Newtonian orbit that the three branches exist in is a delicate one but it is designed to prevent this type of concentration. There [are] two trends going on which should be of equal concern to all members of Congress. One is that we have had the radical expansion of presidential powers under both President Bush and President Obama. We have what many once called an imperial presidency model of largely unchecked authority. And with that trend we also have the continued rise of this fourth branch. We have agencies that are quite large that issue regulations. The Supreme Court said recently that agencies could actually define their own or interpret their own jurisdiction.
That’s how Obama’s cat’s paw, the unelected and maniacally ideological EPA, has gone from scary to terrifying.
It sounds like even Turley is about one more executive order away from joining Forbes in calling for Obama’s impeachment.
Obama isn’t just destroying the foundations of the economy. His administration is an attack on our very system of government.
If the situation gets worse — and it will — liberals are going to have to choose between supporting Obama and being Americans. Kudos to Turley on choosing early and wisely.

Another one? Already?
Investigators say the mother of a Lunenburg [Massachusetts] teen whose home had racist graffiti sprayed on it last month is a “strong suspect” in the case.
According to the search warrant, Isaac Phillip’s mother, Andrea Brazier, replied “OK” when an FBI agent said she was the one who spray painted graffiti on the house.
“Most of the leads we have followed up throughout the investigation have led back towards the house,” said Lunenburg police Lt. Michael Luth.
Luth confirms that the moonbat mom is a strong suspect.
Court documents also claim Brazier made false statements and then asked them to stop the investigation.
Police took a bag of evidence out of the home where “Knights Don’t Need (N-Words)” was spray-painted on the family’s home. Phillips, who’s biracial, plays football for the Lunenburg Blue Knights.
Authorities found spray paint in the home.
“You’re not going to get anything from me besides no comment. I already said everything I had to say,” the teen’s father, Antony Phillips, said.
The family posted a “No Trespassing” sign on their property, and the once-outspoken Phillips aren’t talking anymore.
From the start, they blamed hateful spray paint on their 13-year old son’s football team. They said he was hazed because he is bi-racial.
As with all hate hoaxes, the hoaxers were initially revered by dewy-eyed fools.
The town held a vigil, and the district canceled all future football games. Investigators have since cleared the team, saying they weren’t involved.
Since the media tends to drop these stories once it becomes clear they are hoaxes, we may as well add Andrea Brazier to the collection now, lest her place in history be forgotten:

• Genesis Hernandez
• Danya Morales
• Toni Christina Jenkins

Why so many hate hoaxes? Because they get the hoaxers the fawning attention they crave. Being a victim of political incorrectness is how you get ahead in this society. Since the whole paradigm of white male Christian heterosexual oppressors is a falsehood top to bottom, the oppression needs to be fabricated.

The part about registering voters is particularly alarming, given the reputation for fraud of like-minded ACORN Obamabots.
Planned Parenthood’s loyalty has been well earned. Under Obama, liberals’ Final Solution for inconvenient children is raking in mountains of other people’s money via the federal government. In fiscal 2012, it was handed $542 million in taxpayer money; 45% of the abortion mill’s money is provided on a coercive basis by the government. In return, in addition to supporting Obama, it kills about 1 million babies every 3 years. That comes to $1,626 per human life terminated. No wonder Planned Parenthood has managed to amass assets of $1,244,700,000.
In other Planned Parenthood news, it looks like Wisconsin is rolling out a new specialty license plate, intended to counter “Choose Life” plates. Via World News Bureau:

Americans love SUVs, primarily because they are roomy enough for a family, allow you to carry what you need to carry, are rugged enough to get you through snow and over unpaved roads, offer a commanding view of the road, and best of all, are a far better place to be than a compact car in case of a crash. But soon we can add them to the list of precious things we let our government take away from us. …

This is the sort of thing we can expect to see a lot more of now that homosexuals are establishing themselves as a highly privileged group near the top of the liberal caste system:
As the U.S. marked World AIDS Day with a population of more than 1.1 million infected with HIV, a bicameral movement is underway in Congress to get the federal government to override state laws criminalizing exposure to the virus.
Proponents argue that even though there is still no cure for AIDS, advancements in drug therapies mean HIV isn’t as deadly as it once was. They also contend that laws against potential transmission of the virus — centering around full disclosure of one’s illness to a sexual partner — just stigmatize and oppress those infected with HIV.
Spreading an incurable lethal disease is downright benevolent compared with the crime of stigmatizing and oppressing those who engage in the sacred (to liberals) act of sodomy.
Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he’ll introduce the Repeal Existing Policies that Encourage and Allow Legal (“REPEAL”) HIV Discrimination Act after the Senate returns next week.
Elections have consequences. When Delaware chose Coons over Christine O’Donnell, it chose spreading AIDS over stigmatizing perverts and degenerates.
On a tip from R.F.
Harry Reid was more instrumental than Obama himself in the shenanigans that forced through ObamaCare despite unanimous resistance from Republicans, so you have him to thank at least as much as the disastrous bill’s namesake for the cost of medical insurance shooting through the stratosphere. But he’s not such a bad guy as you might think. Even if he was eager to impose ObamaCare on the country at large, at least he is not so heartless as to inflict it on his own staff:
Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare’s architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the law’s new exchanges.
Reid behaves like this because he is confident he will not be dragged out of his office by an angry mob and torn limb from limb.

The bad thing about being young is you are born knowing nothing. The good thing is that your brain is wired to learn quickly — which is just what millennials have been doing where Obama is concerned:
Young Americans are turning against Barack Obama and Obamacare, according to a new survey of millennials, people between the ages of 18 and 29 who are vital to the fortunes of the president and his signature health care law.
The most startling finding of Harvard University’s Institute of Politics: A majority of Americans under age 25–the youngest millennials–would favor throwing Obama out of office.
Obama has a natural advantage among youth, both because of the famous dictum usually credited to Winston Churchill that “If you are not a liberal at twenty, you have no heart and if you are not conservative at thirty, you have no brain,” and because thanks to demographic engineering exercised through welfare and immigration policies, the younger you are, the more likely you are to be a minority who will enjoy special privileges under liberal rule. Nonetheless the erstwhile Anointed One is sinking fast in this key demographic.
Obama’s approval rating among young Americans is just 41 percent, down 11 points from a year ago, and now tracking with all adults. While 55 percent said they voted for Obama in 2012, only 46 percent said they would do so again.
Most strikingly, 52% of 18- to 24-year-olds favor throwing the Redistributor in Chief out of office.
IOP director Trey Grayson called the results a “sea change” attributable to the generation’s outsized and unmet expectations for Obama, as well as their concerns about the economy, Obamacare and government surveillance.
The young are starting to smell the coffee on ObamaCare — except it doesn’t smell anything like coffee.
Only 18 percent [of millennials] say Obamacare will improve their care. Among 18-to-29-year-olds currently without health insurance, less than one-third say they’re likely to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges.
This is very bad news for ObamaCare, which depends on youth being willing to take it in the neck to subsidize older folks who need more healthcare.
But it is not necessarily good news for Republicans.
Republican and Democratic leaders should find little solace in the results. The survey said that 33 percent of young Americans consider themselves Democrats and 24 percent identify with the GOP. The largest and growing segment is among independents, 41 percent of the total.
A Republican Party that flies in the face of the MSM’s calumnies and convinces the young that they are the good guys could cash in on disaffection with Democrats. A GOP led by Democrat-lite hacks like McConnell, Boehner, and McCain, however, may watch from the sidelines along with the Dems as a third party races past both of them. A revitalized Tea Party — if its leaders are clever enough to use demonization by the establishment as a point in its favor among naturally rebellious youth — could be well positioned to pull this off.

Peter and Hazelmary Bull, who lost the bed & breakfast they had run for 25 years because they refused to let homosexuals use it as a bathhouse, are hardly the only eggs to get broken recently so that progressives can cook their polysexual utopian omelette. Check out this catalog of outrages:
Homosexuals had better enjoy their privileged status while they can. Much like blacks, they are being used as a tool to advance a broader agenda, and may be discarded by progressives when they are no longer useful.
