Chris Matthews’s Producer Assaults Hecklers

For those who dare ridicule prominent Obamunist apparatchiks like Chris Matthews, there can be physical consequences. A patriot reports from the RNC:

General Lee to Be Towed Off to Oblivion

Moonbats dislike America in general, but they truly hate the South. So they are culturally cleansing it out of existence. For example:

The 1969 Dodge Charger from “The Dukes of Hazzard,” known to the world as the General Lee, prominently features the Confederate flag on its roof in the popular 1970s-1980s TV show. Some reports now say the flag will be removed from certain toy versions of the car, and at least one former “Dukes” cast member tells TODAY he’s furious.

Exactly what products might be altered isn’t clear. As reported by ScreenCrush, a poster to HobbyTalk.com’s message board wrote there that he was told by a sales rep for the Tomy toy company that “starting January 1, 2013 all Dukes of Hazzard General Lee vehicles will not be allowed to be produced with the Confederate flag on the top of the vehicle. This directive has been passed onto us from the licensor Warner Brothers.”

A Warner Bros. rep denies the story, but General Lee vehicles with the flag missing or covered up like an obscenity have already appeared.

Actor Ben Jones played the General Lee’s mechanic, Cooter Davenport. He responds:

“More than 33 years since the show premiered on CBS-TV on Friday nights, Warner Bros. has issued a new and terribly insulting attack on the South, a region and a culture which Hollywood has trashed for decades. Some unnamed genius at the company feels that the flag is ‘offensive to some’ and therefore it has no business on a classic TV comedy about a bunch of good ol’ boys and girls in the Southern mountains. This is a new level of ‘P.C.’ idiocy. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of being insulted by morons.”

Jones is fighting a losing battle. Already the General Lee has been banned by NASCAR in the name of being “inclusive.”

It’s the death by 1,000 cuts approach. Who’s going to go to war over a flag on a toy? Then one day you look around and see that every reference to your culture has been deleted.

The Word Chicago Declared Racist

Time for another emergency update to the Newspeak dictionary. Henceforth, it is racist to mention the word Chicago in the context of the Moonbat Messiah according to the Obamunist apparatchiks Chris “Tingles” Matthews of MSNBC and John Heilemann of New York Magazine:

Tingles: “[Republicans] keep saying Chicago. That’s another thing that sends that message — this guy’s helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us in the ‘burbs.”

Vileman: “There’s a lot of black people in Chicago.”

If you thought “Chicago politics” referred to Chicago’s long history of political thuggery and corruption, currently exemplified by the Caucasian Rahm Emanuel, thank the “mainstream” media for correcting your error. The term is racist; therefore using it is a grievous thought crime.

It would be hard to imagine a more ham-fisted example of the Orwellian tactic of restricting thoughts by restricting language. Leftists like Matthews don’t want anyone drawing attention to the political sewer single-party Democrat rule has made of Chicago, or to the fact that Obama crawled out of it dripping with slime, so they place the name of the city off limits.

By the way, there are more whites than blacks in the City That Can No Longer Be Named.

Portraits in Countermoonbattery: Todd Love

In the long run moonbats don’t stand a chance, so long as there are countermoonbats made out of the same stuff as Todd Love:

Covered in mud, five hours after starting, triple amputee Corporal Todd Love charges to the finish line after competing over ten miles of rugged terrain across 75 obstacles in an event called The Beast.

Having lost both his legs and an arm in Afghanistan in 2010, this weekend Love took to Leesburg, Virginia, in an extreme endurance test called The Spartan Race with his eight-man … Team X.T.R.E.M.E.

Made up of wounded servicemen and women, the team helped Love scale eight-foot high walls, speed along high-wires, crawl through mud and bound across the ground as they honoured their ongoing mission to raise awareness of the nation’s wounded heroes.

As if the course weren’t enough of a challenge, Love wore a mask and visor that restricted his breathing.

The third-generation Marine’s vow:

“I will promise I will never let what I can’t do interfere with what I can do.”

Other things he has been proving he can do include skiing, skydiving, surfing, alligator wrestling, and learning to play Bach on the piano.

Meanwhile, 1,304,851 Americans are currently collecting other people’s money in the form of “disability” payments because they claim to suffer from “mood disorders.” Love could take on all of them at once with his last remaining limb tied behind his back.

EPA Funnels American Taxpayer Money to Communist Chinese

Our leftist rulers must feel that interest payments on the gargantuan debt they’ve run up aren’t sufficient to finance the military buildup by their ideological compadres in communist China; the Environmental Protection Agency (aka Employment Prevention Agency) is funneling our money directly to the ChiComs in the name of “green energy”:

The Obama EPA administrator, Lisa Jackson, who launched an enormously expensive program to make America’s minority communities green, has sent millions of taxpayer dollars to environmental causes in nations overseas, including China, Russia and India.

These foreign nations are experiencing economic growth while millions of Americans suffer from joblessness, losing their homes due to foreclosures, and watching their health care being transformed into another government entitlement program, according to political activist Joshua Tallis.

“Ranking members of the U.S. Congress Energy Committee called the program “foreign handouts” amid record deficits, soaring unemployment and a looming debt ceiling in the U.S. The money — $27 million since 2009 — has been issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which is headed by Ms. Jackson,” Tallis said.

Having spent itself $trillions into debt, the government doesn’t actually have any money to shower upon our communist rivals — so it borrows it from them in order to give it to them.

ChiComs aren’t the only ones aboard the EPA’s foreign gravy train:

Among the foreign handouts are $1.2 million for the United Nations to promote clean fuels, $718,000 to help China comply with two initiatives and $700,000 for Thailand to recover methane gas at pig farms, according to public-interest group’s investigation, according to the Judicial Watch blog report.

You read that correctly. While 23 million Americans are out of work due to the effect excessive government spending and regulation have had on our economy, our government sent $700,000 to Thailand to help the locals collect pig farts.

Obama uses the EPA to spread our wealth around internationally because it allows him to evade congressional oversight. Again we see that the only difference between Obamunism and dictatorship is that dictators want their own countries to be strong.

Some recipients of the regime’s largesse are closer to home:

Since being appointed EPA Administrator, Jackson has gone on a manic spending spree to bring “environmental justice” to low-income and minority communities. Under the program, dozens of left-wing groups have received millions of taxpayer dollars to help poor and impoverished people increase recycling, reduce carbon emissions through “weatherization,” participate in “green jobs” training and avoid heat stroke.

That is, farcical green excuses are being used to redistribute wealth from those who create it to Obama’s supporters.

The EPA’s budget has also surged 34% since Jackson took over to a whopping $10.3 billion.

Imagine what that budget will look like in Obama’s second term, when he has more “flexibility.”

Lisa-Jackson-EPA
Jackson: Like all liberals, extremely generous with other people’s money.

Phrase “Holding Down the Fort” Is Now Racist

It’s almost as if they are deliberately aiming for self-parody, to rub it in our faces that we are ruled by contemptible clowns. From the bastion of moonbattery presided over by Shrillary Clinton:

John M. Robinson, the Chief Diversity Officer at the U.S. Department of State, wants America’s diplomats to know that common phrases and idioms like “holding down the fort” are, in fact, deeply racist.

My apologies to anyone who is out of work thanks to the government sucking all the air out of the economy. It can’t be pleasant to be reminded that barnacles like Robinson pull in hefty salaries to perform utterly worthless functions.

Supposedly, the saying “holding down the fort” oppresses Indians by referring to the spread of civilization across North America.

Other terms Robinson denounces as politically incorrect include “black and tan,” “going Dutch,” “handicap,” and “rule of thumb.”

Robinson doesn’t know whether these phrases really do have roots in oppression and discrimination. But when did reality matter to our moonbat rulers? Gibbers Robinson,

“Much has been written about whether the etymologies below are true or merely folklore, but this isn’t about their historical validity. … [I]nstead, it is an opportunity to remember that our choice of wording affects our professional environment.”

More to the point, it is an opportunity to restrict our thoughts by restricting our language, thereby confining them to an ever-smaller box, exactly as predicted by George Orwell in 1984.

Being staffed almost exclusively by liberal kooks like Robinson, the State Department has become actively hostile to US interests. Read all about it in Dangerous Diplomacy by Joel Mowbray.

Voter Fraud and the Collapse of Democrat Registration in Florida

Moonbats are squealing like stuck pigs because new Democrat voter registration in Florida has collapsed — and they blame it on safeguards against fraud:

Florida-voter-registration

A conspicuous lack of enthusiasm for Obama can only go so far toward explaining this. If it indicates how large a percentage of the Democrat vote has been illegitimate, the long-suffering silent majority is a much larger majority than anyone but our liberal rulers knew. The louder they bark about the good guys “suppressing” the vote, the more obvious it is that they can only win by cheating.

Occucommie Calls for Imposing Somalia-like Utopia

They aren’t exactly eloquent, or even coherent, but the Obama Regime’s allies in the Occupy Wall Street movement do manage to express themselves clearly enough — although it’s doubtful they could do it without using foul language:

There you have it — the quintessence of liberal economics:

“Sure [the rich] can create jobs, but it’s not jobs we need, we need housing and food.”

After “the rich” have been looted out of existence, who provides the housing and food? Slave labor. He did say he is a Marxist.

Commander Barry Refrains From Hitting the Deck During One-Gun Salute

By popular demand, here is our courageous Commander in Chief a few years back flinching at a one-gun salute that he knew was coming:

It’s not hard to see why the SEALs he tries to steal glory from seem to despise this guy. But he gets them back; that’s the Chicago way. Not only does he have former SEALs on his enemies list, he sends the parents of SEALS who die in combat robo-signed formed letters, in stark contrast to the personal letter of condolence he sent to the parents of a dead rapper.

Other than Comrade Chairman Obama getting trounced in November, nothing could make this lifelong Clint Eastwood fan happier than to see the Man With No Name give moonbattery a kick in the pants at the RNC tonight.

Sailing on Yesterday’s Ill Wind

A line from the excellent speech at the RNC last night by Paul Ryan sums up Hope & Change:

“Now all that’s left is a presidency adrift, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at the moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to sail on yesterday’s wind.”

Thankfully, the same can be said for the appalling Occupy Wall Street movement. This is what its attempts to disrupt the RNC have amounted to:

The band of fewer than 100 “Occupy”-style protesters tried to taunt police officers by dangling bagels and donuts at the end of fishing poles. “I guess they thought that was funny,” said Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor outside a downtown hotel, where she dealt with the protesters personally. The protesters took over intersections and refused to move for more than 15 minutes — until getting up and asking police for directions to their next protest site.

So far, only three people have been arrested in RNC-related protests, including one suspected of a protester-on-protester attack at a “Romneyville” encampment, WTSP reports. It’s been so uneventful that the police chief has canceled several news conferences on protests because of a lack of news.

Not exactly October 1917. Obama’s Department of Social Justice had better step up its assistance.

Libs Spit Venom at Ann Romney

The Democrat establishment’s attempts to generate hostility against Ann Romney for being a decent, normal person (or “corporate wife” as Fox News moonbat Juan Williams would bark) are paying off. Look how revved up the base is getting:

[L]iberals have taken to Twitter in the wake of Ann Romney’s speech at the Republican National Convention calling for her death.

The tweets were first noticed early this morning by a blogger with Pundit Press.

A Twitter poster named Gregory Martinez tweeted how his desire to murder Ann Romney, saying: “I want to murder Ann Romney right now.” …

[O]ther posters such as an Ashley Miller urged the wife, mother and cancer survivor to commit suicide.

“Ann Romney, go kill yourself,” Miller wrote in her Twitter feed. Her sentiments were joined in by an individual identified simply as Connor, who wrote; “Ann romney: Kill yourself.”

Good, evil. Make your choice and vote accordingly.

Injustice Department Working With Occucommies in Tampa

When threatened, it is natural to fall back on the familiar. For the Obama Regime, that means street thuggery, or as liberals call it, “community organizing.” Consequently,

Exclusive video captured by Breitbart News during Occupy/anarchist demonstrations outside the RNC Tuesday shows CRS field representatives, wearing DOJ logo polo shirts and hats, conversing with Occupy protesters.

CRS = Community Relations Service, a division of the hyperpoliticized farce that was once the Department of Justice (DOJ).

In one case, a CRS representative and protester are seen to high-five each other.

CRS representatives are also seen relaying specific instructions to the activists about the location of prearranged buses that were apparently taking them to their next scheduled demonstration. …

The purpose of CRS is to mediate in ongoing disputes — not to foment them, or to become participants. However, there is evidence that the Obama administration may be using CRS as a quiet community organizing force.

Similarly, they are using the communist hooligans of the Occupy crowd the same way Hitler used his brownshirts.

What do you expect of an Alinskyite radical who cut his political teeth at ACORN?

South African Airways Not Accepting White Pilots

Now that moonbattery reigns supreme in South Africa, racism has at last been relegated to the dustbin of history — unless you’re a white who wants to become a pilot:

Cadet pilot training course applications from white men are no longer being accepted by South African Airways (SAA), it was reported on Friday.

SAA spokesperson Kabelo Ledwaba told Beeld that the cadet programme was being advertised online as an initiative to bring pilot demographics in line with the country’s broader demographics.

“Only 15% of SAA’s pilots are currently black, and this includes Indians and coloureds. The rest are white, and 91% of them are men.”

To correct this supposed problem, the online form was programmed to automatically reject white applicants, regardless of qualifications.

If you ever fly SAA, you might want to bring along a parachute, considering that pilots are chosen on the basis of identity politics moonbattery rather than ability to fly the plane.

Moonbat Wears Dress to Encourage His Five-Year-Old Son to Do the Same

From Germany, an adventure in moonbat parenthood:

When Nils Pikert’s now 5-year-old son started wearing dresses, it turned a few heads but was generally not a big deal in their cosmopolitan hometown of Berlin. But when the family picked up and moved to the smaller South German village, all that changed, reports Gawker.

Even though he loved wearing dresses, Pickert’s son was too shy to put one on in public for fear of being laughed at, especially by his pre-school classmates. “I didn’t want to talk my son into not wearing dresses and skirts,” Pickert told the German magazine EMMA (translated here by blogger Steegeschnoeber). “I had only one option left: To broaden my shoulders for my little buddy and dress in a skirt myself. After all you can’t expect a child at pre-school age to have the same ability to assert themselves as an adult. Completely without role model. And so I became that role model.”

And so Pickert put on a skirt and strolled around town with his son in tow. … A day later, the little Pickert was back at his dress-wearing ways, first for the weekend and then to school.

Obviously five-year-olds don’t just start wearing dresses on their own. Their parents are responsible for choosing their clothes, just as they are responsible for teaching them appropriate behavior. But Herr Pickert instead trains his kid to be a freak, presumably for his own political purposes — or maybe just so he can bask in the adulation of the social engineers who run the media.

Fired Municipal Bureaucrat Demands $837,000 in Vacation and Sick Pay

The greed and arrogance of the parasites who rule us know no bounds:

A former employee of Bell, Calif., which made headlines for paying enormous salaries to a slew of officials who now face criminal charges, is suing the city for $837,000 in unused vacation and sick time.

Eric Eggena, who was director of general services in the small Los Angeles suburb, was paid as much as $421,000 a year in total compensation after starting at just $90,000 in 2002, according to the Los Angeles Times. Although he was not among the eight city officials who were arrested in a criminal probe, he was fired when the scandal broke.

The scandal involved compensation packages for municipal bureauweenies as high as $1.5 million per year.

Due to the ongoing Reconquista, the population of Bell is over 93% Hispanic. Socialists who rule over largely illegal immigrant peasants from a dysfunctional Third World country evidently find looting their electorate to be easy work. This is one reason our government refuses to defend the USA’s territorial sovereignty.

Eggena’s attorney, Richard Shinee, said the city must honor the contract, regardless of the terms.

The sooner cities (and union-infested corporations like Government Motors) go through bankruptcy, the sooner we can put an end to these obscene contracts once and for all. Even the bureaucrats will be better off if we stop the gravy train before it reaches its final destination: total economic collapse and their heads stuck on pikes by angry mobs.
