New Year’s Resolution for Obama

2013’s Most Irritating Moonbats

If there is one thing more inevitable than tomorrow morning’s hangover, it is a profusion of lists at the end of the year. Jim Goad put together one of the better ones: The 13 Most Annoying People of 2013. Highlights:

OPRAH WINFREY
Failing to ever publicly acknowledge that she is astronomically fatter and richer in Evil Racist America than if her ample rump had been reared in Mother Africa, the wealthiest black woman in the history of black womanhood spent most of the year wheezing like a punctured accordion about how tough it is to be black. She possibly fabricated a tale of being snubbed by a Swiss clerk, falsely claimed that “millions” of blacks had been lynched in America (the total was actually somewhere around 4,000), blamed criticism of Obama on white American racism, and suggested that the problem will only get better when white racists start dying en masse. Miz Winfrey, you is one ungrateful Negress. And you pee too much.

PIERS MORGAN
This fey, pompous, snooty, lime-farting Enemy of All Things American had the gall and fundamental lack of honesty to call Rachel Jeantel a “smart cookie” after an appearance on his show that revealed Jeantel to be dumber than a hippo basking in an African mud pond. All year long, Morgan railed against guns, racism, Americans, American guns, American racists, and American racists with guns. Here’s hoping that some meth-addled gun nuts somewhere in the American heartland devise a gun big enough to shoot Piers Morgan all the way back to England.

ETHAN “PAJAMA BOY” KRUPP
This defanged, deballed, hi-snark/lo-testosterone, curly-haired bespectacled beta geek snuggled up in red PJs as he blithely sips a mug of cocoa is easily the most objectionable human being to enter my field of consciousness over the past twelve months. A poster boy for the unspooling disaster known as Obamacare, Krupp is also emblematic of American culture’s systemic devaluation of all things manly. Doris Day had more male hormones than he does. I’ve seen baby guppies that could kick this kid’s ass. Ethan Krupp’s face is the most persuasive evidence I’ve ever seen that society would benefit if it were to open its mind once again to the virtues of bullying.

Barack Hussein didn’t make the list, either because he is too obvious, or because he is being held back for the list of the most annoying people ever.

MSNBC Directs Racial Sneers at Romney’s Adopted Grandson

This picture was good for a laugh riot at MSNBC:

romney grandchildren

The explanation, via the Washington Times:

In a “Photos of the Year” segment of MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” program on Sunday, several members of the host’s panel decided to poke fun at former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his adopted black grandson.

Miss Harris-Perry threw up a photo of Mr. Romney surrounded by his entire family, all of whom are white, except for baby Kieran, who was introduced to the Romney family in September. Miss Harris-Perry then asked her panel to caption the photo, the Right Scoop first reported.

Actress Pia Glenn can be heard off-camera singing, “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same.” …

“I think this picture is great,” comedian Dean Obeidallah chimed in. “It really sums up the diversity of the Republican party and the RNC, where they have the whole convention and they find the one black person.”

No Dean, it was you moonbats who zeroed in on the one black person.

Here’s the real punch line. These people will denounce anyone who does not toe their line ideologically as “racists.”

Rose Parade Subverted to Promote Homosexual Agenda

The “love that dare not speak its name” has become “the disgusting depravity that liberal authorities will not stop grinding into your face like a cream pie in a Three Stooges movie.” Those with children and/or weak stomachs are advised to miss this year’s Rose Parade:

Aubrey Loots and Danny Leclair joke that they’re getting married New Year’s Day in front of 80 million of their closest friends, and the men say they aren’t that concerned that a few thousand others may boycott the first gay marriage at the 125-year-old Rose Parade.

The pair, together for 12 years, plan to tie the knot atop a giant wedding cake on the AIDS Healthcare Foundation float when it stops at the Rose Parade’s reviewing stand on Wednesday. Hundreds of thousands of people line the 5 1/2-mile parade route through Pasadena and an estimated 80 million more are expected to watch on TV from around the world.

It’s probably safe to assume that among those not watching will be Karen Grube of San Diego, who launched a “Boycott The 2014 Rose Parade” Facebook page after learning of the couple’s intentions. As of Monday, it had about 4,000 likes.

Make that 5,602 and climbing. You can Like it here.

The blasphemous travesty of homosexual marriage is only lawful in a minority of states. But judicial oligarchs are working on that, just as a homosexual judge imposed it by force on California after it was rejected by voters.

Promoting homosexuality from atop an “AIDS Healthcare Foundation” float is both bizarre and appropriate, considering that homosexuality is by far the most prevalent means of spreading this deadly and horrific disease.

The objective of injecting this depravity into the Rose Parade is to force the public at large to watch men kissing each other as if this were normal behavior, so that the vast majority who are privately sickened by it will feel that they are somehow in the wrong and need to get with the program so as not to be left outside the herd.

If this isn’t enough to convince you that losing the Culture War is not an option, just hold on — it will keep getting worse.

The Birthday Moonbats Would Rather Celebrate: Mao Zedong’s

The birthday of Jesus Christ is not a happy event for our liberal overlords, as exhibited by their ongoing campaign to purge the culture of Christmas. In contrast, the birthday of communist dictator Mao Zedong is enthusiastically celebrated by fellow travelers at NBC. NewsBusters transcribes an appalling CNBC video report:

Now that Christmas is over, in China, fans of Chairman Mao Zedong are celebrating the birth of a man who they believe to be their savior.

December 26 is the 120th birthday of the founder of the Peoples Republic of China. People here are marking the occasion by eating birthday noodles, singing revolutionary songs, and in fact one city actually erected a golden jade Mao statue worth $16 million. …

The government is cracking down on extravagance and has ordered that festivities this year be toned down [yeah right]. That’s disappointing diehard Maoists who believe that this day should be as big a holiday here as Christmas is in the United States.

To put this blatant ChiCom government propaganda in perspective, let’s keep in mind that of every satanic tyrant in history, Mao Zedong dwarfs the competition, having killed 70 million of his fellow Chinese. Not even Stalin can compete with Mao’s stats, leave alone pikers like Hitler and Castro.

By indulging in the blasphemy of equating Jesus Christ with arguably the most evil human being to have ever lived, the moonbats at NBC treated themselves to the exhilarating thrill of being at the cutting edge of leftist lunacy.

The New York Times joined the holiday festivities with a piece headlined, “Happy Birthday, Chairman Mao.” But at least the Slimes managed to temper liberal adulation of this fiend with a nod to reality:

To mark the birth of Mao Zedong 120 years ago on Thursday, Dec. 26, statues of the revolutionary leader will be washed throughout the country, Chinese media reported.

Stamps will be issued, books published, documentaries broadcast, photographic exhibitions staged, “red songs” sung, Mao-themed calligraphy displayed, seminars and speeches held, [blah blah blah] …

Yet Chairman Mao’s legacy is controversial, even if many ordinary Chinese are deeply proud of the 1949 revolution and revere him.

Why anyone would revere a monster who killed 70 million of their countrymen while subjecting the rest to conditions they barely survived in the name of malevolent collectivist ideology is left unexplained. As for why there is a little controversy, the Slimes confesses,

At the heart of the ambiguity is Mao’s legacy as a leader who is seen by ordinary Chinese as freeing China from foreign influence and class oppression, but who also made “mistakes,” as the state-run Global Times wrote on Monday. Those included the persecution and deaths of millions of people in political campaigns that began in the 1950s and lasted into the early 1970s. After Mao’s death in 1976, the government declared him “70 percent right and 30 percent wrong,” an oft-used Chinese formulation.

The Slimes appears to endorse the 70-30 formulation. Yeah he killed far more people than any other tyrant in history, but he advanced oligarchical collectivism, just like everyone at the shady Gray Lady, so he was mostly good.

At least that’s better than NBC’s 100-0 formulation, which boils down to, “Genocidal communist tyrants are like totally awesome!”

CNBC does its part to promote the Great Leap Forward.

Physical Standards Abandoned So That Women Can Become Marines

Good thing the purpose of the US Armed Forces is now to advance progressive social engineering objectives rather than to win wars. Under liberal rule, it won’t be long before even the Marine Corps is incapable of fielding a fit fighting force.

Females in the Marine Corps currently are not required to do even a single pull-up, and a deadline mandating that by Jan. 1, 2014, they be able to do at least 3 pull-ups as part of their training has been delayed for at least a year, the Corps quietly announced on social media.

Since the people chosen to succeed by liberal masterminds can’t meet objective standards, the standards are lowered. That’s how Affirmative Action destroys excellence everywhere it is applied.

Currently, “women aren’t able to make the minimum standard of three pull-ups,” Marine spokesman Capt. Eric Flanagan told CNSNews.com.

There is nothing arbitrary about expecting a Marine to be able to do a few pull-ups.

Pull-ups have been used to test Marines’ upper body strength for over 40 years. The ability to pull-up one’s own body weight over a bar shows the upper body strength that, in combat, is needed to lift fallen comrades, pull one’s self over a wall, and carry heavy munitions. Combat Marines also carry a pack that weighs around 90 pounds, with gunners carrying an additional 50 or 60 pounds.

But standards applied to men are irrelevant, because you would have to be a lunatic to use women as infantry.

Women in the Marine Corps will be allowed into ground combat in 2016.

Oh that’s right. We are ruled by lunatics.

It has always meant something to be a Marine. But then, until recently it had always meant something to be an American. Nothing is immune; liberalism will rot to putrescence anything it is imposed on.

Hollywood Plans Pro-Communist Version of Anti-Communist Animal Farm

George Orwell might have seen this coming.

In his most famous work 1984, Orwell describes a totalitarian society in which history is constantly rewritten to meet the momentary political needs of the ruling party, on the theory that those who control the present control the past, and those who control the past control the future. Another well-known work warning of the perils of oligarchical collectivism is Animal Farm, in which a socialist revolution leaves everyone but those who end up in power worse off than before. Applying the principles of the former book to the latter, we have the next obscenity to be excreted by Hollywood:

Actor Andy Serkis is set to direct an upcoming movie adaptation of George Orwell’s classic novel Animal Farm. But there will be a slight deviation from the story’s original focus: rather than serve as a cautionary tale about Communist totalitarianism, this updated version will address Hollywood’s predictable, go-to embodiment of evil, the Darth Vader of our time: corporate greed.

That is, the anti-communist story will be twisted around to advance the ideological objectives of communists.

What would expect from the leftist oligarchs of Tinseltown?

Gibbers Serkis,

“First and foremost, we are not making a film about Communism and Stalinism because if Orwell was writing the story today, he would be talking about other relevant topics like globalization and corporate greed.”

Yeah right. A more likely possibility is that Orwell

might be taking up his pen against the abuses of government surveillance, the left’s alliance with the creeping totalitarianism of Islamic theocracy, and the oppression inherent in the left’s shrewd manipulation of political language, such as its relentless push for submission to speech codes and its intolerance of politically incorrect expression.

Typically of left-wing propaganda, the movie will be targeted toward an audience too innocent to laugh it off.

“We’re making a family film,” said Serkis. Of course, because progressives are nothing if not proselytizers for their political religion, and they know how critical it is to preach their gospel to the youth. Hence all the family-friendly, anti-corporate, animated environmentalist propaganda films in recent years like Wall-E, Happy Feet, and The Lorax. Serkis’ Animal Farm seems destined to be burdened by a similar sort of heavy-handed agitprop.

From here, the commies running Hollywood can press ahead with a version of Atlas Shrugs that extols socialism and attacks “corporate greed” and the long-overdue film version of The Gulag Archipelago praising the just and humane ways of the Soviet government. Then they might broaden their perspective with a biblical epic promoting homosexuality.

So Much for Moonbats Supporting the Troops

It used to be that liberals opposed our country but purportedly supported our troops. Now that they are running the country, there is less need to maintain a pretense.

A patriotic soldier personifies everything leftists oppose. Union leader Janet Vrotsos was upfront about it in a Facebook message to triple amputee Senior Airman Brian Kolfage (via Pat Dollard):

jan-vrotsos

That text bears repeating:

You disabled veterans are worthless and all should have died, shame on you for fighting in a republican war, you deserved to lose all you limbs and I hope all veterans lose their benefits. I hope you die a miserable death you worthless fake hero. You and your family will be a burden on tax payers for your entire life.

After publicity hit, her union proclaimed that someone had hacked into her Facebook account. That’s right: the Anthony Weiner defense. Airman Kolfage is not buying it.

It isn’t just union thugs on Facebook. When Simple Truth Church in Nevada County, California tried to show support for American troops with a billboard, moonbats demanded it be torn down for being an “eyesore” — even though the billboard is an upgrade of a faded old realty sign:

nevada-county-church-sign

Apparently local bureaucrats are prepared to cut down the sign and bill the church for the expense, so as to spare local liberals from its offensiveness.

Meanwhile, troops continue to be killed and maimed in Afghanistan, prevented from effectively fighting back by absurd rules of engagement. There are no plans for winning the war. The only explanation for their presence there at this point is that it is not politically expedient for our tasteless joke of a Commander in Chief to withdraw them immediately. But their courage is as honorable as it would be if they were fighting under a government that deserved them.

Stuck on Stupid

At least the Cult of Global Warming provides us with some spectacular laughs:

A dramatic example caught the attention of the world Christmas morning, when a vessel hired by a group of global warming scientists radioed for help after becoming trapped in ice off Antarctica. …

The Chinese ice breaker Snow Dragon steamed to the rescue and was last reported six nautical miles away, but has now found itself blocked by the ice. Its captain said, “the current ice conditions is exceeding our capability to break through further.”

Chris Turney, who is a professor of climate change at the University of New South Wales, is the leader of the expedition. He posted a video to YouTube optimistically predicting that Snow Dragon would reach his position within a few hours, but the ice breaker was forced to turn back.

Maybe they could airdrop Al Gore to melt away the growing ice with a blast of hot air.

The waters around Antarctica experienced remarkable sea ice expansion in 2013 confounding the global warming ice narrative.

Global warming campaigners have been stymied by the lack of any temperature increase in the major temperature data sets since the nineties. They’ve tried to compensate by feeding the media a steady stream of “extreme weather” stories and with shrill claims about polar ice. However, historical and scientific data show today’s weather to be normal. 2013 was in fact particularly tame by many standards with no hurricanes making landfall in the U.S. and data on droughts, fires, heat wave, floods, etc. all coming in at or below average.

There hasn’t been any global warming at the North Pole either.

The global warming campaign seized on northern sea ice in an attempt to find some evidence to show warming. Northern ice has had a few sparse years recently. Al Gore told COP 15, the UN climate conference in Copenhagen, that the North Pole could be “completely ice free” within five to seven years. However, 2013 did not cooperate with that narrative either, as northern ice expanded over 50 percent above 2012 levels. Yachts and research vessels attempting to make news by transiting the Northwest Passage became trapped in the ice and their attempts had to be abandoned. See, Gullible green sailors trapped in the Arctic. Likewise, alarmist claims about polar bears have run afoul of the facts as polar bear populations continue to expand and thrive.

Too bad for information gatekeepers that the Internet allows us to do end runs around our TV sets to find out what’s really going on out there.

Temperature records compiled by NASA, NOAA and the UK Met Office all show no global warming since the nineties, some cooling and very little warming before that.

Attempts to convince us that cooling is actually caused by warming have been effective only among mental defectives. Sooner or later, the liberal establishment will have to revert to the global cooling panic it whipped up during the 1970s.

Leave them there until they admit their ideology is a lie.

Minneapolis Mayoral Runner-up Beaten by “Teenagers” in Mall of America

You don’t need to venture into the Heart of Darkness at places like Kong’s Plaza to witness the crumbling of civilization. This happened at the largest mall in the country in terms of number of stores, in formerly placid suburban Minneapolis:

The two teenagers accused of beating a Minneapolis mayoral candidate after a cohort stole his iPhone at the Mall of America had cased the Starbucks ahead of time, according to authorities.

By now I shouldn’t have to note that “teenager” refers more specifically to race than to age in crime reports from the establishment media.

Mark Andrew, also a former Hennepin County commissioner, was beaten on the head with a metal baton after a juvenile male snatched his phone as he sat in Starbucks.

Andrew received nine stitches at Fairview Southdale Hospital, where an ambulance took him after the attack around 7 p.m. Thursday.

One of the women arrested, Letaija Shapree Cutler-Cain, 18, of Brooklyn Park, was charged with second-degree assault with a deadly weapon. The other woman was not identified because she is 17. The male who stole the phone was not identified.

In the complaint, police said the male took off with the phone. When Andrew gave chase, the two women confronted him and kept him from leaving the store. The complaint said Cutler-Cain jumped on his back and the younger teen struck him repeatedly on the head with the baton. As Andrew struggled with the women, Cutler-Cain gouged his face with her fingernails, yelling at him: “I’m going to kill you, Let me go or I’m going to kill you!”

Police said Andrew was struck with a metal baton and was bleeding profusely from a large cut on the top of his head and from his mouth. He also had bruises and abrasions on his face. …

Even after authorities detained the attackers, the women told Andrew they would have him killed.

Andrew, age 63, is a prominent member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, which is affiliated with the odious Democrat Party. They say a Republican is a Democrat who has been mugged; maybe it isn’t too late for him to learn.

But he doesn’t seem to be learning quickly.

“They’re damaged kids, and maybe they’re too far gone, but I think there’s redemption for everybody,” said Andrew. “So we’ll try to find a way for them to get in a place where they can turn their lives around.”

I sure hope that place has high fences and sturdy bars.

Note that Andrew is the one with his head split open, but it’s the “kids” who can’t be held responsible because they are “damaged.” Meanwhile Oprah Winfrey is out there shrieking that older whites “just have to die” for being “marinated” in “racism”.

Gil Voigt, a Thought Criminal on His Way to Room 101

“It’s a free country” used to be a common expression. You don’t hear it so much anymore. After all, in a free country, a teacher might get away with being alleged to have said, “we don’t need another black president” after the Obama debacle without an axe immediately coming down on his head:

The Fairfield [Ohio] board of education this week suspended teacher Gil Voigt (VOYT’) without pay. The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports (http://bit.ly/1ilf5qv) that board president Dan Murray said the suspension is the first step in the termination process. The teacher has 10 days from formal notification to appeal before the school board. …

Voigt reportedly told school officials he was misquoted. He has taught at Fairfield since 2000.

Did he really even say it? As Shrillary might screech, “What difference does it make?” He has been branded as a thought criminal. His career is over.

Meanwhile, teachers who sexually molest students remain on the public payroll.

On a tip from Wiggins.

Update:

Judging by some comments, it wasn’t as obvious as I thought that I am not endorsing what Voigt said; I am expressing terror at the idea of living in a country where children can instantly end your career by accusing you of a thought crime.
