The Culture War continues to go well — for liberals:
One fashion firm hopes to change the way we shop for underwear with the launch of a range of racy lingerie exclusively for men.
The HommeMystere collection, which includes padded bras, lacy teddies and frilly thongs with names like Jungle Fever, Moulin Rouge and Forget-me-not, is said by the firm to be ‘comfortable’ and ‘great for all day wear’.
They specialise in, they say, ‘comfortable men’s panties that really do fit, bra straps that don’t fall off the shoulder, teddies that don’t ride up halfway through the night and quality soft fabrics that feel great for all day wear’.
This helps explain how an effete metrosexual could be president of what was once the USA.
Happy now, libs?
Next time the State Department draws up a list of state sponsors of terrorism, it will have to include the USSA. Terrorists our rogue government have sponsored conspicuously include the Tsarnaev clan from Islamic Chechnya:
The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance — a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing from 2002 to 2012, the Herald has learned.
“The breadth of the benefits the family was receiving was stunning,” said a person with knowledge of documents handed over to a legislative committee [Monday].
These are not American-born citizens, but Muslims imported and subsidized at great expense by our hostile government to help displace the native population.
Meanwhile, Tamarlan had enough cash on hand to make an extended trip to Russia, presumably for terrorist training.
If our liberal rulers are able to ram through the Gang of Eight Quislings’ amnesty bill in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, they will be emboldened to go further still toward eradicating every remnant of the America we knew and loved.

At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.
Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.
“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”
Similarly, the Regime has good reason to want Toensing’s client quiet.
Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators consider relevant to the attacks: the months that led up to the attack, when pleas by the ambassador and his staff for enhanced security in Benghazi were mostly rejected by senior officers at the State Department; the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, and the eight-day period that followed the attacks, when Obama administration officials incorrectly described them as the result of a spontaneous protest over a video.
In addition to the threats, the Regime has been denying Benghazi whistleblowers effective legal representation:
Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican from California who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, wrote to Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday to complain that the department has not provided a process by which attorneys like Toensing can receive the security clearances necessary for them to review classified documents and other key evidence.

The call went out from the liberal establishment for someone in professional sports to declare himself to be homosexual. That call was answered by a third-rate basketball player named Jason Collins who this year averaged 1 point per game.
Whether Collins really is a pervert is irrelevant. The point is that he has helped advance the liberal agenda; in return his career will be advanced. Already he has received a phone call from a thankful president:
Hours after Collins disclosed his sexuality in an online article, Obama reached out by phone, expressing his support and telling Collins he was impressed by his courage, the White House said. …
And first lady Michelle Obama chimed in on Twitter on Monday afternoon to applaud Collins.
“So proud of you, Jason Collins! This is a huge step forward for our country. We’ve got your back!” the tweet read. It was signed “mo” — signifying that the first lady personally wrote the message.
A step forward… toward what? Why is the campaign to homosexualize mainstream culture so important that the president takes time off from his golf and fundraising?
Collins is a free agent and not very good. Evidently this stunt was intended to earn him a contract. The team that signs him despite his lack of talent will get a big public relations pat on the head from the degenerates who rule us.
Basketball is the liberal sport, as this graph illustrates:
The next big win for libs will come when some loser on the skids tries to grab his 15 minutes and save his NFL or MLB career with the same shameful maneuver.

In case the Muslim bombing of the Boston Marathon left you with any doubts as to whose side the administration of Barack Hussein Obama is on:
Attorney General Eric Holder declared Monday that the Justice Department is on the lookout for acts of violence or discrimination that signal a backlash to the Boston Marathon bombings earlier this month in which three people were killed and scores wounded.
Holder has made no secret of his commitment to serving what he calls “my people” at the expense of the majority population. Apparently Muslims count as his people. As some Bostonians learn to get by with their legs blown off, he righteously intones,
“[T]he Justice Department is firmly committed to protecting innocent people against misguided acts of retaliation.”
Unlike these acts of retaliation, the murder and mayhem caused by Muslim terrorism actually exist. But our liberal rulers would rather focus on politically correct fantasies.
There are 10 times as many hate crimes committed against Jews in this country than there are against Muslims. Yet that doesn’t inspire outrage from Holder, Obama, or the dhimmi lickspittles in the media.
Hat tip: Weasel Zippers.
America’s enemies don’t have much to fear from the Community Organizer in Chief, but its people do. Even in the aftermath of Muslims bombing the Boston Marathon, Americans now fear the government more than terrorists:
A Fox News survey polling a random national sample of 619 registered voters the day after the bombing found Americans responded very differently than after 9/11.
For the first time since a similar question was asked in May 2001, more Americans answered “no” to the question, “Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism?”
Of those surveyed on April 16, 2013, 45 percent answered no to the question, compared to 43 percent answering yes.
In May 2001, before 9/11, the balance was similar, with 40 percent answering no to 33 percent answering yes.
But after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the numbers flipped dramatically, to 71 percent agreeing to sacrifice personal freedom to reduce the threat of terrorism.
Over the last dozen years, we have learned where the most profound threat lies — or at least, some of us have learned:
Bucking the trend, 51 percent of Democrats responded they would give up personal freedom to reduce the threat of terror, compared to 36 percent opposed.
Forty-seven percent of Republicans, on the other hand, opposed giving up freedoms, compared to only 43 percent in favor.
Yet independents were the most resistant, with only 29 percent willing to sacrifice freedom, while 58 percent stood opposed.
The solution is simple: use the Gang of Eight Quislings’ amnesty bill to import millions more Democrats, who will view Big Government the way a baby bird views its mother. Then we will have trust.

No one familiar with the typical consequences of liberal social engineering will find this surprising:
Children who are given anti-racism lessons in school are more likely to be intolerant outside the classroom, a major study found…
According to the Dutch report, ethnic hostility could be caused by a “a one-sided offender-victim approach to racism.”
That is, when you constantly rub children’s face in how awful they are for being European, unlike wonderful darling Mohammed, the kids react by not liking Mohammed very much.
The response is so predictable that you have to wonder whether educrats are really that dumb, or are deliberately instilling the intolerance they so sanctimoniously abhor in order to justify their ideology. A similar phenomenon can be seen with Affirmative Action, which seems tailor made to produce the anti-black racism that is endemic according to liberal doctrine but scarce in real life.
The inevitable result of progressive balkanization will be a backlash against the privileged special interest groups the liberal ruling class favors at the expense of the majority population. As the dead white male William Shakespeare put it, “Even a worm will turn.” Unless we put multiculturalism behind us and go back to a healthy melting pot approach, moonbatty screeching about racism will become a self-fulfilling prophesy.

It hasn’t been easy for American journalists to come to grips with the Boston Marathon bombers predictably turning out to be Muslim and the War on Guns stalling for now in the Senate. Here one played by Sunny does her best to cope:
In the midst of a ham-fisted attempt to characterize the Tea Party as “anarchist” because it wants the size and scope of the corrupt behemoth in Washington brought back under control, Harry Sleaze lets slip possibly the most profoundly false statement of his ignoble career:
“Government is inherently good, that’s why we have a Constitution.”
On the contrary, the Constitution was created explicitly because government is not inherently good, and therefore must be restrained.

Killers and rapists are being released from upstate prisons in record numbers — and many have returned to their roots in the city, state documents reveal.
The data show that 230 murderers and sexual predators from the five boroughs were set free in 2012, the most since state record-keeping began in 1990.
The figure — a 19 percent surge from the 193 violent thugs sent home in 2011 — follows years of steady annual increases.
Those back on the streets include Paul Kennedy, who strangled 16-year-old Rita Heilweil and then raped her corpse, and Christopher “Crazy Chris” Aniades, who raped and strangled 19-year-old Doreen Vitale; he is suspected of several other attacks on women, one of which entailed slashing the victim’s throat and cutting her eyes.
Room must be freed up in the prison system for the likes of Beth Ferrizzi of Fargo, arrested for changing planes in the People’s Republic of New York as she returned home from Pennsylvania with a firearm belonging to her husband in the Air Force.
No doubt Kennedy and Aniades appreciate the gun control efforts of Governor Cuomo and Mayor Bloomberg, especially if they plan on resuming their old activities.
The term for a system under which criminals run rampant but the law-abiding are not permitted to defend themselves is anarcho-tyranny.

Just as the USSR imposed Marxist ideology on every aspect of existence, the USSA imposes liberal weeniness. The latest example of how children are conditioned so that they will grow up to be suitable subjects for their moonbat rulers:
A 10-year-old California boy was suspended and threatened with expulsion after he brought a Swiss Army Knife on a week-long school camping trip.
Tony Bandermann told Fox News that his son Braden was on a science camping trip with his class at Garden Gate Elementary School in Cupertino, Calif.
According to a school incident report, the boy showed the small knife to other students who then reported him to teachers. The incident report stated that law enforcement was also notified.
The little stoolies who squealed on him will no doubt get commendations in their files.
Bandermann, who was out-of-town on a business trip, said he received a telephone call from the school’s principal informing him that his son had violated the school’s weapons policy. The punishment, she told him, must be immediate and severe.
“She threatened to expel him,” he said. “She kept telling me, ‘you can’t bring a weapon to school.’ A Swiss Army Knife is a tool not a weapon.”
But tools are weapons now. Ask Doug Bartlett, the Chicago teacher who was suspended for showing children how to use wrenches and pliers.
Since he was unable to pick up his son, the principal put the boy in 24-hour isolation at the camp — held in a teacher’s lounge where he was forced to eat and sleep in solitude.
Here we see Braden brandishing the weapon that got him in such trouble:
Nothing good can come of allowing the government to educate children.

The Senate will try again to pass recently defeated gun control legislation, and will be aided by increasing activism from previously neutral voters, Sen. Chuck Schumer predicted [Thursday] at a press conference.
“I think we will bring the bill back before the end of the year… lots of Senators who thought it was safe to vote against it [April 17] because of the intensity [of gun-rights supporters] are not so sure any more,” Schumer told reporters at an April breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
Remember 2006, when John “Lettuce” McCain et al. tried to ram amnesty down our throats but had to back off because the people rose up in rage? He was left for dead politically. Two years later, by some miracle of evil, he was the GOP presidential candidate. Now he is pushing amnesty again as a member of the Gang of Eight Quislings. The same strategy of backing off in the face of public fury but then continuing to advance their pernicious designs after the anger has subsided applies to gun rights.
“I do agree with Chuck that I think the issue will come back,” said Sen. John McCain, who supported an amendment to expand background checks during an April 17 vote.
This indicates how far they are from giving up:
Obama’s Organizing for America is using some of the staff, data and techniques form Obama’s high-tech 2012 campaign to build public support for gun control.
The government can do literally whatever it wants to us once we have been disarmed. For an idea of what that has meant in the recent past, refer to the nightmare history of Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany.
In the classic movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers, malevolent aliens take over your life when you fall asleep. We are in the same situation; the instant our eyes close, Schumer, McCain, Obama and the rest will swoop in to take what’s left of our country.

Renovations continue at the Burlington Coat Factory building in Lower Manhattan that is now known as the Ground Zero Victory Mosque. Twelve years after the Muslim atrocity the mosque celebrates, they are still finding wreckage:
A rusted 5-foot-tall piece of landing gear believed to be from one of the hijacked planes destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks has been discovered near the World Trade Center wedged between a luxury apartment building and a mosque site…
The twisted metal part, jammed in an 18-inch-wide sliver of open space between the buildings, has cables and levers on it and is about 17 inches wide and 4 feet long, New York Police Department Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Friday.
“It’s a manifestation of a horrific terrorist act a block and a half away from where we stand,” he said. “So, sure, it brings back terrible memories to anyone who was here or who was involved in that event.” […]
The medical examiner’s office will complete a health and safety evaluation to determine whether to sift the soil around the buildings for possible human remains, police said.
So much for the preposterous lie by Islamists and their liberal allies that the mosque isn’t really at Ground Zero. But I’m sure this will be brushed away by Michael Bloomberg, Chris Christie, and other mosque supporters, just like the landing gear that had already been discovered to have crashed through the building’s roof.
Building mosques at the sites of military victories is an Islamic tradition that goes back centuries.
