CNN Anchor: Say, Maybe We Should Take Down the Jefferson Memorial Too....

What I love about the New America is how psychologically stable and definitely not hysterical it is.

The New America is a place where the words "Let's be reasonable and think this through" are grounds for a public shaming and Social Justice Firing.

So sure, I think we should tear down the Jefferson Memorial, and then set fire to the bricks, and then, when we realize that bricks don't really burn, bury them in the sea so that non-racist Social Justice Whales mayest poop upon them in all their scorn.

I think, in short, we should run around like poorly raised children all high on High Fructose Corn Syrup red drink. (What flavor? Red is the flavor.)

I think we should be as impulsive and stupid as possible, because, hey! Thinking, considering, contextualizing is for Racists.

They called America stupid for decades -- then they set about to making their slur accurate.


By the way, one more shout-out for Mike Flynn.

Lurkering Lurker posts this excerpt from Andrew Breitbart's "Righteous Indignation," p. 167-168 (hardback):


All I had to do now was make 'those unbelievable ACORN videos' a household phrase. Luckily, I had a sterling team on board. Big Gov was headed up by a good friend, Mike Flynn... Aside from being an outstanding writer and editor himself, Mike was by far my number one connector in Washington circles when it came to limited-government and fiscal-responsibility types. His last job had been with the Reason Foundation, so his conservative/libertarian credentials were intact. He understood state government because he'd worked there; he understood the federal government as well. He knew the best writers and researchers. So I asked Mike to fly out to California for 'an important meeting'; I wanted to do this in person. Sitting across from him, I had only one question that mattered: 'What do you know about ACORN?' A smile broke across his face. 'A lot.'"

Thank you all for being so supportive of me and of Mike. Yesterday I was feeling a bit down about all this; your support has buoyed me, and I now feel pretty good.

Doesn't hurt that Mark "The Great One" Levin tweeted The Case for Mike Flynn out.


You know what I call that? I call that a slice of sweet Awesome Pie with a scoop of Cherry Awesome ice cream.

11 Personally, I think the Republicans in state government should have been more unreasonable. Very few, if any, have been pinning the incorporation of Confederate imagery on the Democrats who put it there.

"Republicans defeated the Democrats when they wanted to secede from the union in favor of slavery. Republicans gave their lives to end slavery while Democrats were fighting to the death to keep it. After losing the war, Democrats in state legislatures successfully put their battle flag in the state houses and sometimes even on state flags. That is wrong, and we will fight the Democrats here, too. The Democrats symbol of slavery does not deserve government support!"

17 Well, you know what? If they're going to blame every Southerner for slavery and racism, 150 years after the War of Northern Aggression ended, then, in the words of Jules Winnfield, "allow me to retort..."

Everyone who's ever been a member of the Democrat Party or voted Democrat needs to renounce the Klan, apologize for Bull Connor, admit the shame of Jim Crow laws, and pay reparations.

105 What really needs to happen is we need to reverse engineer the benefit anyone ever received from slavery out of society. I don't mean reparations. I mean that if a slave owner ever contributed to the building fund of a historical structure, it needs to be torn down. If a port was ever used for entry of slave ships, such that its current success could in any glancing degree be traced to the income from that trade at some point in its history, the port and the city around it must be nuked, and the rubble bulldozed into the harbor to fill it.

I know it's been mentioned already, but since CNN is officially putting this forward as A Thing Which Must Be Considered, there's some other groups running about blowing up offensive monuments of the past. There's not a whisker of difference between the thought process of the Taliban, of ISIS, and of the Left regarding what they think effects the behaviors of individuals, and therefore the justification of the means to the end.

If your eye makes you sin, gouge it out.

The Left makes that into

Durant is good but he goes on and on and on about art a bit too much for my taste. In this book, he really goes after it obviously.


Ace is dead on right. Ideas matter. I remember reading the first book in this series. Ancient Greece. There was an ancient Greek city state that had a custom. A guy who wanted to introduce a law had to stand on a chair with a noose around his neck.

If the law passed, they removed the noose. If the law failed, they removed the chair.


I couldn't remember the name of the city state so I googled it and guess what. None other than Ronald fucking Reagan used that in a joke, of course, espousing the virtue of limited government.


IDEA MEN MATTER. We need more Reagans, not RINOs. So reading what Flynn was reading blew me away. Nice.

And then last weekend I just got lazy and skipped it again. I couldn't bring myself to go outside in the heat.

Tonight I got home from work, turned on the computer, and looked at the weather forecast for this weekend. Nothing but rain, rain, and more rain. I hate mowing the lawn in the evening after working all day, but it looked like it was now or never. I steeled myself to change clothes and go out and do it.

At that moment the guys who cut my neighbor's lawn showed up. I practically jumped out the window and ran over there, asking them if they could also cut mine, like right frickin' now.

They quoted me $30, did it, and I gave them $35. I'm doing the Happy Dance right now.

Another nice part is that they are two Americans. I asked for their card and will definitely consider them in the future.

177 Why don't we tear down the Lincoln Memorial too?

After all, here's what Lincoln had to say about blacks, in his fourth debate with Stephen Douglas:

"I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, [applause]-that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race."

What is it about the concept of "historical context" that the left just can't comprehend?

Washington, Jefferson -- and even Lincoln nearly 100 years later -- all lived in a time when the accepted wisdom was that blacks were morally and biologically inferior to whites. We know today that that thinking was wrong, but we can't judge 18th or 19th century people using 21st century standards.

This PC madness is beyond idiotic.

206 The idea of Islam is that no one can be expected to maintain pure behavior unless everyone else around them is already doing so as well. So when men from the ME travel outside the ME, they whore it up and drink and whatnot and don't particularly have pangs of conscience about it--they can't be expected to resist temptation because they're surrounded with irresistible levels of it.

This is why the end game of Islam has to be world domination. It's not an interest on the part of Muslims to "save" the world, in the way that Christians approach prosylitization. Islam doesn't care so much if you choose to submit to Islam or prefer to have your head whacked off instead, so long as the end result is a world in which every single individual is focused on keeping the tenets of Islam. Only then will flawless behavior of each individual be possible, because all temptation will be eradicated.

I cannot see any difference between this concept and the Left's approach to what they view as societal ills, some of which (racism) we would actually agree upon in principle. But while the conservative would address racism as an attitude of the individual and attempt to reason with them to change that attitude, the Left can only fixate on the actual physical destruction of any cultural monuments to which they can make any degree of strained connection to a given issue, and what they call "education." It would be bizzare if there weren't so many, many examples of that exact behavior in history; the totalitarian removal of any cultural artifact tied to the idea being opposed (Attaturk, for example, changed the entire male dress code), coupled with the strict enforcement of recitation of the new dogma.

The Left doesn't choose not to reason with those who hold opposing views to theirs merely because they don't stand a chance in that arena. It has to do with their fundamentally bankrupt view of the individual, the value of the individual, the capability of the individual.

217 The trans retired Navy SEAL who calls himself Christine Beck is now running for Congress in the Maryland primaries to unseat Steny Hoyer. This is something I love - when liberal ideologies clash so magnificantly against each other creating mass chaos. If Steny attacks her, will he be a woman hater? A transgender/bi/homo hater? Hilarity ensues.

On another note I found amusing, Ms. Christine Beck was having a conversation with a retired Colonel about 'her' run for Congress. She told him that she had been a Navy SEAL for 20 years and he remarked "That's amazing, I didn't know that there were any female SEALS". Ms. Beck forgot to mention that when a SEAL her name was Chris and she had those dangly things between her legs.

What the grievance mongers don't realize that it was a great vehicle for Hattie McDaniel/Mammy to display her talents of which she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for that movie. In the story itself, Mammy is the strong one who holds the family together through joy and tragedy. She was never afraid to tell someone what was up and showed heroism.

No, the Bonnie Blue actually predates by many years and is associated originally with West Florida vs the Spanish. The FC is the one that is actually the "Stars and Bars," and resembles a "Betsy Ross" flag, but with two wide red stripes and one wide white stripe.

Anyways, LL insisted that we had to integrate and so we switched over to the seg-league that was Dixie Youth Baseball.

Now that we are completely integrated, why does Dixie Youth still exist?

_______________________

When I was a kid, we used to drive down to a very rural part of Virginia to visit my grandparents every summer. There were a couple of gas stations along the way that still had "whites only" signs over the drinking fountains. My parents would never stop at those stations, but my dad would slow the car down and point to the signs and explain that this was how it used to be. My siblings and I all attended Virginia public schools which had large populations of black students and we all had black friends, so we were quite taken aback by the idea of blacks being treated differently than whites.

On this site occurred the Colfax Riot in which three white men and 150 negroes were slain. This event on April 13, 1873 marked the end of carpetbag misrule in the South.

It was put up in 1950. That would have been under Democrat James Davis. Those 153 people were almost certainly all Republicans. It's a sign commemorating the murder of Republicans in order to perpetuate real racism.

298 Ace: one more excerpt, from the Acknowledgements (p. 234).

"Michael Flynn, a longtime friend and trench warrior, was the right man at the right time to run Big Government and to make sense of the wild new Obama/Pelosi/Reid big-government terrain. After fighting the activist left for so many years, his collaboration in the group takedown of the mighty, mighty corrupt ACORN is his place in history."

I finally got around to reading 'Righteous Indignation' and O'Keefe's 'Breakthrough' earlier this week (after they'd been sitting on my bookshelf for well over a year), each in a single sitting, in back-to-back evenings.

What's striking is Andrew's optimism at the end of the his book -- the strong belief that citizen journalists could crack the Democrat-Media Complex and save America. What's terrifying is the Complex's response to O'Keefe's investigative journalism, as documented in O'Keefe's book.

Ace, I don't post, but I do read here almost every day. Keep up the fight. Like you, I do despair, but even worse, I don't do much. Am I man enough to take up the torch and do Something? Or am I a Quisling, content to keep my head down?

I don't watch this stuff except when clips get posted on websites where I travel or channels to which I subscribe. And often skip those as just too insipid.

I know the LaughingStock Media is doing this kind of pathetic propaganda and ambush interviews all the time, I just choose not to be exposed to it much as a rule. Usually they're just annoying, doing what one expects. Seen one, you've seen 'em all.

But their usual level of stupid, combined with the incredible gormlessness of this New Civil War they're fomenting (doing just what the Charleston killer wanted) made these especially hard to watch.

The non-newsfolk, Cruz, the student, the righteously indignant store owner who "refused to identify himself" are fine to see.

But it's hard to suffer through the idiot spew in these clips for those gems. I had to keep hitting pause on the bobbleheads because, as I watched them, I kept getting interrupted by streams of f-words and other hate speech erupting from my mouth. They've reduced me to that.

Now they are emboldened and are talking about removing statues of Confederate generals from war memorials, and changing the names of monuments.

Oh, is the thread dead? Why does it keep twitching like that?

325 Let's get Lincoln off that throne at the memorial. He was no king.

326 rickl: All manufacture of Confederate flags in the USA ceased on 6/22.

I see entrepreneurial opportunity!!

327 Stace, I liked that too, although my actual favorite thing about Mamie was her telling scarlet she had a baby and her waist would never be 18 1/2 inches again.

321 Holy shit. Here is the response I got from Flag Store USA:

Thanks for you're inquiry. We are just a retailer, not a manufacturer. All manufacture of Confederate flags in the USA ceased on 6/22. I cannot get the flag anymore. Thanks for understanding.

Wow.

328 321 Did they end the manufacture and sale of Black Panther flags? I doubt that many of the stars-and-bars crown could come close to matching the militancy, bigotry, racism and all out hate spewed forth by the NBPP.

329 I'm just broke up about this slavery thing.
Face it, no matter how hard we try, this blacks in America will always be a constant reminder of this tarnished past.

I propose we use Barack Ovama's plan to send all black folks back to Africa and replace them with Hispanics.

Ace. I hope the truculent to your Brother-in law doesn't come back all beat up and with a blown motor........ (let's see if this idea works. I need to work on my vocab also).

331 Look, y'all, we are in the throws of a cultural revolution on par with what was implemented in China. The left is in power, and they are using it to tear down the very foundations of this country. They are succeeding, and they will succeed unless people get organized and start carrying out massive civil disobedience. The existence of our country is at stake.

332 Obstreperous and truculent are words I use almost daily. Drives the other half mad and most other people just nod and slowly back away.

333 "they" is making the conservatives victims
And mistress overdone is correct the rebel battle flag is part of our nation's foundation
And mistress please send us emails after your arrest for civil disobediance or not

334 Can we still fly the flag of Shays Whiskey rebellion ?
My feeling is that we should of hung Davis

Posted by: righter at June 24, 2015 10:59 PM (r6HrP)

335 Or, maybe, we should dump the bricks of the Jefferson memorial just offshore, deep enough to lure the whales of social justice in to ATTEMPT to poop on them but a little too shallow for the pooping to be convenient. Then we can easily harpoon the gray bastards and feast on their blubber and meat. We could use their hides to construct new musical instruments that would captivate the liberals and prevent any serious backlash. Just a thought.

336 It never occurred to you that, if the Confederate flag should be banned because it represents slavery, then the same could be said about ACTUAL slave owners?

Well, if you don't care about my symbols, then why should I care about yours? Tear them all down.

And, since we're judging 19th century people by 21st century standards, Lincoln and Grant were both war criminals. America shouldn't have memorials to honor war criminals. We're better than that. Tear them down, too. And, while we're at it, Why should I have to look at war criminals every time I open my wallet? It's past time to take their divisive faces off our currency.

337 I read social justice firing as social justice fisting. I think my interpretation works better.

338 CNN needs to stop with the "Hire the Stupid" program.

339 So, the almost daily islamic terror attacks "don't represent all muslims".

But, this one guy represents everyone with a Confederate flag? #doubleStandards?
