Suicide of a Superpower, Decline of a civilization

Somebody out there gets it.  Via Drudge, excerpts from Pat Buchanan’s explosive new book.  My copy is already on order.

“As the faith that gave birth to the West is dying in the West, peoples of European descent from the steppes of Russia to the coast of California have begun to die out, as the Third World treks north to claim the estate.  The last decade provided corroboration if not conclusive proof that we are in the Indian Summer of our civilization.”

“America is disintegrating. The centrifugal forces pulling us apart are growing inexorably. What unites us is dissolving. And this is true of Western Civilization….Meanwhile, the state is failing in its most fundamental duties. It is no longer able to defend our borders, balance our budgets, or win our wars.”

Chapter 1: The Passing of a Superpower

“We have accepted today the existence in perpetuity of a permanent underclass of scores of millions who cannot cope and must be carried by society — fed, clothed, housed, tutored, medicated at taxpayer’s expense their entire lives. We have a dependent nation the size of Spain in our independent America. We have a new division in our country, those who pay a double or triple fare, and those who ride forever free.”

Chapter 2. The End of Christian America

If [Christopher] Dawson is correct, the drive to de-Christianize America, to purge Christianity from the public square, public schools and public life, will prove culturally and socially suicidal for the nation.

“The last consequence of a dying Christianity is a dying people. Not one post-Christian nation has a birth rate sufficient to keep it alive….The death of European Christianity means the disappearance of the European tribe, a prospect visible in the demographic statistics of every Western nation.”

Chapter 3. The Crisis of Catholicism

“Half a century on, the disaster is manifest. The robust and confident Church of 1958 no longer exists. Catholic colleges and universities remain Catholic in name only. Parochial schools and high schools are closing as rapidly as they opened in the 1950s. The numbers of nuns, priests and seminarians have fallen dramatically. Mass attendance is a third of what it was. From the former Speaker of the House to the Vice President, Catholic politicians openly support abortion on demand.”

“How can Notre Dame credibly teach that all innocent life is sacred, and then honor a president committed to ensuring that a woman’s right to end the life of her innocent child remains sacrosanct?”

Chapter 4. The End of White America

“[W]hite America is an endangered species. By 2020, whites over 65 will out-number those 17 and under. Deaths will exceed births. The white population will begin to shrink and, should present birth rates persist, slowly disappear.”

“Mexico is moving north. Ethnically, linguistically and culturally, the verdict of 1848 is being over-turned. Will this Mexican nation within a nation advance the goals of the Constitution — to “insure domestic tranquility” and ‘make us a more perfect union’? Or have we imperiled our union?” (Page 134)

Chapter 5. Demographic Winter

“Peoples of European descent are not only in a relative but a real decline. They are aging, dying, disappearing. This is the existential crisis of the West.” (Page 166)

“Not any Iranian weapon of mass destruction but demography is the existential crisis Israel faces….By mid-century…Palestinians west of the Jordan river will out-number Jews 2-1. Add Palestinians in Jordan, it is 3-1.”

“In a startling development of history, Russia’s population has fallen from 148 million in 1991 to 140 million today and is projected to plunge to 116 million by 2050, a loss of 32 million Russians in six decades.”

Chapter 6. Equality Vs. Freedom

“Those who would change society begin by changing the meaning of words. At Howard University, LBJ changed the meaning of equality from the attainable — an end to segregation and a legislated equality of rights for African-Americans — to the impossible: a socialist utopia.”

“Where equality is enthroned, freedom is extinguished. The rise of the egalitarian society means the death of the free society.”

“A time for truth. As most kids do not have the athletic ability to play high school sports, or the musical ability to play in the band, or the verbal ability to excel in debate, not every child has the academic ability to do high school work. No two children are created equal, not even identical twins. The family is the incubator of inequality and God its author.”

Chapter 7. The Diversity Cult

“The non-Europeanization of America is heartening news of an almost transcendental quality,” Wattenberg trilled.4 Yet, one wonders: What kind of man looks with transcendental joy to a day when the people among whom he was raised have become a minority in a nation where the majority rules?”

“Historians will look back in stupor at 20th and 21st century Americans who believed the magnificent republic they inherited would be enriched by bringing in scores of millions from the failed states of the Third World.”

Chapter 8: The Triumph Of Tribalism

America’s war of revenge against Japan was a race war. Newsreels, movies, magazines, comic books, headlines treated “Japs” as a repulsive race whose extermination would benefit mankind….Only well after the war was over was it re-branded a war to bring the blessings of democracy to…Japan.

We may deny the existence of ethnonationalism, detest it, condemn it. But this creator and destroyer of empires and nations is a force infinitely more powerful than globalism, for it engages the heart. Men will die for it. Religion, race, culture and tribe are the four horsemen of the coming apocalypse.

Chapter 9. ‘The White Party’

“Through its support of mass immigration, its paralysis in power to prevent 12-20 million illegal aliens from entering and staying, its failure to address the “anchor-baby” issue, the Republican Party has birthed a new electorate that will send it the way of the Whigs.”

Chapter 10: The Long Retreat

“We borrow from Europe to defend Europe. We borrow from the Gulf states to defend the Gulf states. We borrow from Japan to defend Japan. Is it not a symptom of senility to be borrowing from the world so we can defend the world?”

“Are vital U.S. interests more imperiled by what happens in Iraq where were have 50,000 troops, or Afghanistan where we have 100,000, or South Korea where we have 28,000 — or by what is happening on our border with Mexico?…What does it profit America if we save Anbar and lose Arizona?”

Chapter 11: The Last Chance

“We are trying to create a nation that has never before existed, of all the races, tribes, cultures and creeds of Earth, where all are equal. In this utopian drive for the perfect society of our dreams we are killing the real country we inherited — the best and greatest country on earth.”

The Gender Benders: Google+ offers Male, Female, and “Other”

A world with no gender

I learned something new today: PGP.  Preferred Gender Pronoun.  It’s for those days when you wake up in the morning and you aren’t sure whether you want to be a boy or girl.  Which is where the new social networking site Google+ comes in handy.  Aren’t sure what your sex is?  Simply sign in as “Other”.  That’s choice!  That’s freedom!  No limits baby!  From the New York Times:

The Freedom to Choose Your Pronoun

A FEW weeks ago, Katy Butler, 16, updated her status on Facebook with an enthusiastic shout-out for Google+, the social network’s latest rival. “Oh my God Google! I love it! I was signing up for Google+ and they asked me my gender and the choices were male, female or OTHER!!!!! Oh ya Google!”  Katy, a high school junior in Ann Arbor, Mich., first encountered “other” as a gender option at a meeting of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and Allies (LGBTQQA) in seventh grade. “For those of us in the nonconforming gender community, it is great to see Google make the option more mainstream,” she said.

Though Google created the “other” option for privacy reasons rather than as a transgender choice, young supporters of preferred gender pronouns (or P.G.P.’s as they are called) could not help but rejoice. Katy is one of a growing number of high school and college students who are questioning the gender roles society assigns individuals simply because they have been born male or female.  “You have to understand, this has nothing to do with your sexuality and everything to do with who you feel like inside,” Katy said, explaining that at the start of every LGBTQQA meeting, participants are first asked if they would like to share their P.G.P.’s. “Mine are ‘she,’ ‘her’ and ‘hers’ and sometimes ‘they,’ ‘them’ and ‘theirs.’ ”

P.G.P.’s can change as often as one likes. If the pronouns in the dictionary don’t suffice, there are numerous made-up ones now in use, including “ze,” “hir” and “hirs,” words that connote both genders because, as Katy explained, “Maybe one day you wake up and feel more like a boy.”  Teenagers are by nature prone to rebellion against adult conventions, and as the gender nonconformity movement gains momentum among young people, “it is about rejecting the boxes adults try to put kids in by assuming their sexual identity labels their personal identity,” said Dr. Ritch C. Savin-Williams, director of the Cornell University Sex and Gender Lab. “These teens are fighting the idea that your equipment defines what it means for you to be a boy or girl. They are saying: ‘You don’t know me by looking at me. Assume nothing.’ ”

Australia last month issued new passport guidelines allowing citizens to give their official gender as male, female or indeterminate. In Britain, the Home Office is also considering a third gender category on passports, according to reports.  In the United States, the transgender movement is beginning to find advocates in high schools. There are now nearly 5,000 Gay-Straight Alliance Clubs, high school organizations offering support to teenagers, registered with the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, a national organization whose mission is “to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”

“More students today than ever are thinking about what gender means and are using this language to get away from masculine and feminine gender assumptions,” said Eliza Byard, the network’s executive director.  Some colleges, too, are starting to adopt nongender language.  Last month, students at Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., voted to edit the student constitution so that it contains only gender-neutral language. And in 2009, the University of Michigan Student Assembly passed a resolution eliminating gender-specific pronouns from the Statement of Student Rights and Responsibilities.

And they say Big Business is conservative?  Really???  lol  They aren’t even Republican, let alone conservative.

Here we have yet more proof that Leftism is the greatest threat to Western civilization since the bubonic plague.  Everything it promotes, it seems, take us one step closer to cultural oblivion.  Today’s example of their suicidal madness is the war the Left is waging on gender identity.  I’m not talking about the mere tinkering around the edges which was the shift in gender roles starting in the 70s.  You know, that women get to have a career and men help around the house.  Radical stuff back in the 70s, but how quaint that all seems today.  No sir, cutting edge 21st century Leftism is concerned with obliterating the very notion of gender itself.

The Left despises “distinctions”.  You see this contempt in their moral relativism which rejects absolutes, blurring the lines between good and evil (even rejecting the very notion of “evil”).  Distinctions, they believe, divide people and cause friction and strife.  The distinctions we see between nations must be eradicated because they cause conflicts and wars, and they imagine a world with no countries nor borders.  Gender distinctions oppress women and gays because these differences are the originator of gender roles and the “patriarchy”, so it too must be obliterated (which is ultimately why “gay marriage” is so heavily promoted even as they do everything in their power to undermine traditional marriage).  The Left doesn’t promote equality, it promotes sameness.

We often wonder what crazy kook cockamamie idea the Left will latch onto next after they win the battle for marriage. What will the Left declare as the next frontier of “progress”.  Polygamy?  Pedophilia?  Seems we now have the answer.  These are the same people, mind you, who seek to portray conservatives as “crazy” and “extremist” and “radical” because they want to protect and preserve the best of our Judeo-Christian civilization from these rapacious culture destroyers.  Could anything be more upside down?  I mean, wow.

And here the New York Times and Google, Inc.  (both Big Businesses) do their part to imagine a world with no sexes/genders.  This is the Left’s trajectory.  This is secular progressivism.  This is mainstream Liberalism today.

UPDATE:  And to further illustrate our point, Lefties celebrate gender bending as “art” here.

Temporary marriages, Gay Liberation, and the “Patriarchy”

Until death do us part?

Yet more proof that everything the Left does advances the clock of civilizational collapse.  I only had to read the headline to instantly realize the Left’s fingerprints were all over this one.

Mexico mulls 2-year marriage

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexico City lawmakers want to help newlyweds avoid the hassle of divorce by giving them an easy exit strategy: temporary marriage licenses.  Leftists in the city’s assembly — who have already riled conservatives by legalizing gay marriage — proposed a reform to the civil code this week that would allow couples to decide on the length of their commitment, opting out of a lifetime.  The minimum marriage contract would be for two years and could be renewed if the couple stays happy. The contracts would include provisions on how children and property would be handled if the couple splits.  “The proposal is, when the two-year period is up, if the relationship is not stable or harmonious, the contract simply ends,” said Leonel Luna, the Mexico City assemblyman who co-authored the bill.

“You wouldn’t have to go through the tortuous process of divorce,” said Luna, from the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution, which has the most seats in the 66-member chamber.  Luna says the proposed law is gaining support and he expects a vote by the end of this year.  Around half of Mexico City marriages end in divorce, usually in the first two years.  The bustling capital, one of the world’s largest cities, is much more liberal than the rest of the country, where the divorce rate is significantly lower although on the rise.

Abortion is legal in Mexico City, while the Supreme Court ruled this week to uphold state laws in Baja California that say life begins at conception.  Leftist Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, who angered the Catholic Church when he made Mexico City the first Latin American city to legalize gay marriage in late 2009, announced this month he would soon step down to run for president.  The church criticized the proposed change.  “This reform is absurd. It contradicts the nature of marriage,” said Hugo Valdemar, spokesman for the Mexican archdiocese. “It’s another one of these electoral theatrics the assembly tends to do that are irresponsible and immoral.”  The Church holds considerable sway in the country with the world’s second largest Catholic population after Brazil.

[.]

What "gay marriage" is ultimately about.

Hurray!  Divorce is even more hassle-free now.  So why are they doing this, you ask?  Because it promotes statism and the secular progressive value system.   This simultaneous promotion of gay marriage while undermining traditional marriage is all part of a larger plan in furtherance of their secular progressive utopia.  Leftism has always hated the institution of marriage as an instrument of oppression and the status quo.  They call it “the Patriarchy.”   Gay activist and atheist Martha C. Nussbaum puts it this way:

Gays and lesbians are a symbol, in much of the public imagination, for sex without reproduction, for the decoupling of marriage from commitment to raising a family in the traditional way, which has certainly been a male-dominated way. …The connection between recognition of gay unions and the erosion of traditional marriage is that if sex is thought to be available outside of the marriage bond, women will have fewer incentives to embark upon marriage and child rearing, and may not wish to do so if marriage continues to be a largely patriarchal and unequal institution.

Wow, that’s pretty blatant stuff.  You won’t often hear it so candidly put.  So it’s no coincidence that the same Mexican Leftists who legalized gay marriage in Mexico City are also behind this temporary idiocy.  And who suffers the consequences of these broken marriages of convenience in a country without a safety net such as Mexico?  Why, the children!  The children who then require the State to intervene as their surrogate daddy lest they end up on the streets and starve to death.  And if no such paternalistic state currently exists, why, then it shall be created!  See how they operate?  And now you know the ultimate reason why these Marxists are trying to destroy marriage and the “patriarchy.”

And of course, this is happening right under our noses but the dots aren’t being connected, so nobody even notices or cares.

UPDATE: Even the Huffington Post is now weighing in on this AWEMAZING idea!  And don’t neglect the comments section there which is always a pretty good barometer of just how far gone those people are.

Pink Witches, white paper, political correctness run amuck

Sanitized and sterilized for your viewing safety.

Modern Liberals are crazy.  Straight up.  Not bad people mind you, just sick puppies the whole lot of them.  When you read this article, keep in mind that as the further and faster racism recedes from our culture, the more DESPERATELY these Sec Progs try to find it.  They NEED racism to exist because as racism recedes, so does the modern Liberal’s relevance.  They lose a major raison d’etre with racism gone.   Not to mention it makes a fairly useful club against their hated enemies on the Right.  And where a Lib means to find racism, believe you me, he will find it!

Dress witches in pink and avoid white paper to prevent racism in nuseries, expert says

From the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz to Meg, the good witch from the Meg and Mog children’s books, witches have always dressed in black.  But their traditional attire has now come in for criticism from equality experts who claim it could send a negative message to toddlers in nursery and lead to racism.

Instead, teachers should censor the toy box and replace the pointy black hat with a pink one, while dressing fairies, generally resplendent in pale pastels, in darker shades.  Another staple of the classroom – white paper – has also been questioned by Anne O’Connor, an early years consultant who advises local authorities on equality and diversity.

Children should be provided with paper other than white to drawn on and paints and crayons should come in “the full range of flesh tones”, reflecting the diversity of the human race, according to the former teacher.  Finally, staff should be prepared to be economical with the truth when asked by pupils what their favourite colour is and, in the interests of good race relations, answer “black” or “brown”.

The measures, outlined in a series of guides in Nursery World magazine, are aimed at avoiding racial bias in toddlers as young as two.  According to the guides, very young children may begin to express negative and discriminatory views about skin colour and appearance that nursery staff must help them “unlearn”.

If children develop positive associations with dark colours, the greater the likelihood that the attitude will be generalised to people, it says.  The advice is based on an “anti-bias” approach to education which developed in the United States as part of multiculturalism.

Ah, there it is, that scourge of Western civilization– multiculturalism.  Not surprised to see its fingerprints on this one.  Next on the sec prog agenda, outlaw toy witches (might offend the pagans).  More secular progressive madness here.

A Tale of two parties: The hecklers

Those Teabaggers are so HATEFUL and so ANGRY.  Or at least that’s how the Dems and their allies in the media like to portray them.  As evidence they provide the following where some Tea Party activists confront Obama about alleged reports that Vice-President Biden called the Tea Party a bunch of terrorists to whip up support for the debt limit deal.

That’s it?  They sounded pretty civilized to me.  Sure, they were persistent, but their tone was even and level, and they let him speak.  How incredibly presidenti­al Barack might have sounded if he had acknowledg­ed their grievances and then apologized on behalf of Joe Biden and the rest of this administration’s hatchet men and attack dogs who have so lowered the bar on political discourse in this country over the last three years.  He is the “Healer in Chief”, here to bring a “new tone”, is he not?  lol. But that’s just not how Obama is built.  When he’s off script, it’s back to his old Chicago Way.  And yet this mild little incident is what the Dems are currently shopping around to prove how extreme and “terroristic” those baggers are.  Pretty thin gruel if you ask me.

Now let’s compare and contrast that episode with how wild-eyed Leftists deal with the other side.  This was how they heckled and harangued one of the GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney, at the Iowa State Fair:

Savages.  And yet it’s the Teabaggers who are the angry, violent ones.  Uh huh, sure.

The fact is that Liberalism never made somebody a better person.  It hasn’t, and here you have more proof.  For all their protestations about caring for “the poor” (i.e., themselves), it’s not an ideology that places very much emphasis on codes of personal behavior, which is why they can do whatever they damn well please and never be accused of hypocrisy.  Conservatism, on the other hand, does emphasize personal behavior, which is why anybody on the Right who falls short of their standard is condemned by the Left as a “hypocrite”.  A good Lib has no such dilemma, and that’s why they can behave as childishly as they want and still regard themselves as a paragon of secular progressive virtue, as long as they have the correct beliefs. Especially when the target of their bile is one of those eeeevil Reichwingers.

That’s why there are hecklers, and then there are hecklers.

Sen. John Kerry (D) to mainstream media: Censor the Tea Party

Liberal fascism rears it’s statist, collectivist head.

“The media in America has a greater responsibility than it’s exercising today. 

The media has got to begin to NOT give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because someone asserts it. 

It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea.”

Isn’t the mainstream media liberal enough for ya, Sen. Kerry?

The greatest threat to freedom of speech today is coming from the Left.  Jonah Goldberg, author of the bestselling book Liberal Fascism says,  “Many modern liberals and leftists act as if they know exactly what fascism is.  What’s more, they see it everywhere—except when they look in the mirror.  Indeed, the left wields the term like a cudgel to beat opponents from the square like seditious pamphleteers.”

Philadelphia teachers Helped Students cheat for their own good

Standardized tests the bane of self esteem movement

This is just sad.  Teachers in Philly explain how they helped their students cheat in order to, get this, help them!

Philadelphia English teacher explains why she helped students cheat

The revelation that more than 80 Atlanta teachers admitted to cheating on state standardized tests–with one group of elementary teachers even holding a “party” after school to change their pupils’ answers by hand–has rocked the education reform movement.  But one question has been left unanswered: Why would a teacher resort to cheating in the first place?

The Notebook blog has found a Philadelphia teacher willing to explain why she helped her 11th-grade English students cheat on the state’s standardized tests. (The blog earlier broke the story that Pennsylvania officials suspected cheating may have occurred in 60 state schools.)  The teacher, who remains anonymous in the story, says she began to help her students cheat because she worried their self-esteem was crushed by taking tests they were in no way academically prepared for. If a student asked a question during one of the eight yearly testing periods, she would help him or her find the right answer, or occasionally just point to it on the exam.  “I never went to any student who didn’t call me to help them cheat,” said the teacher. “But if somebody asked me a question, I wasn’t willing to say, ‘Just do your best.’ They were my students, and I wanted to be there for them.”

The teacher said administrators bullied teachers about boosting test scores so that the school would make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), creating a constant state of performance anxiety in the classroom. Schools with low scores must improve by a certain amount each year to avoid federal sanctions set forth by the No Child Left Behind law. In some cases, the federal government shuts down schools that fail to boost scores year after year.  “The prevailing message was, ‘We have to make AYP this year, or they’re going to shut our school down and you’re all going to lose your jobs.’ At every professional development [session], that’s what we discussed,” the teacher said. She added that many teachers at her school engaged in cheating.

The Atlanta scandal and a USA Today report of potential teacher-sanctioned cheating in 1,600 classrooms across six states has put pressure on the Obama administration for its focus on standardized testing. Teachers in some districts are being paid bonuses for their students’ performance on state tests, and many others have their performance evaluation tied to those scores.  Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says that the emphasis on tests does not encourage cheating. In fact, he sees it as the only way to ensure schools are adequately teaching their students.

In study after study, American high school kids show far higher levels of “self esteem” than high school kids overseas, yet they score the lowest at every academic level.  Gee, I wonder why.  On what precisely is this false sense of “self-esteem” based?  Certainly not on accomplishment!  It seems we now know the answer– grades!  Inflated though they may be.  The American “self-esteem” movement has completely de-linked self-esteem from any kind of real achievement, and now even some social scientists are admitting that “self-esteem” has crossed into over-confidence.  Another PC idea that crashed and burned and wound up in the shit house.  And in a godless, secular society where a man’s worth cannot be measured by the transcendental or divine, what exactly is this so-called “self-esteem” supposed to be based on then?  If not on accomplishment, then what?   What’s left?  Why, nothing!  The sad truth about the self-esteem movement is that they have actually harmed the cause of our children, not benefited them.  Thanks to Liberals, secularism, and their “self esteem movement”, our youth now have little or no reason to have any real self esteem.  Plenty of narcissism though.

Here, George Carlin’s take on the BS that is the self-esteem movement:

Separation of Church and State: VA Cemetery bans “God”, “Jesus”

Unconstitutional tombstones at Houston VA cemetery.

VA Cemetery Accused of Censoring Religious Speech

Separation of church and state!  It’s right there in the Constitution, didn’t you know!  So glad the Libs are standing up to that Reichwing theocracy!

Local veterans and volunteer groups are accusing Department of Veterans Affairs officials of censoring religious speech — including banning the word “God” — at Houston National Cemetery.  In one example cited in documents filed this week in federal court, cemetery director Arleen Ocasio reportedly told volunteers with the National Memorial Ladies that they had to stop telling the families, “God bless you,” at funerals and that they had to remove the words “God bless” from condolence cards.

The new allegations of “religious hostility” by VA and cemetery officials follow on the heels of a controversy over a prayer in Jesus’ name by Pastor Scott Rainey at a Memorial Day service in the cemetery.  U.S. District Judge Lynn N. Hughes ruled May 26 that Ocasio couldn’t stop Rainey from using the words “Jesus Christ” in his invocation.  Attorneys with the nonprofit Liberty Institute, which represented Rainey, filed an amended complaint this week after allegedly finding other instances of religious discrimination by cemetery officials against members Veterans of Foreign Wars District 4, The American Legion Post 586, and the National Memorial Ladies, a volunteer group that attends funerals of fallen service members.

The complaint accuses VA of “a widespread and consistent practice of discriminating against private religious speech” at the cemetery.  Ocasio is on vacation and could not be reached for comment. Her assistant, Amanda Rhodes, said the cemetery had no comment.  According to court documents, Ocasio banned members of the groups from using certain religious words such as “God” or “Jesus,” censored the content of prayer, and forbade the use of religious messages in burial rituals unless the deceased’s family submitted the text to her for prior approval.  Court documents also describe the closure of the cemetery’s chapel after Ocasio’s appointment as director two years ago.

“The doors remain locked during Houston National Cemetery operating hours, the cross and the Bible have been removed, and the Chapel bells, which tolled at least twice a day, are now inoperative,” the complaint reads. “Director Ocasio only unlocks the Chapel doors when meetings or training sessions are held at the building. Furthermore it is no longer called a ‘chapel’ but a ‘meeting facility.'”

“It’s just unfair that somebody would ask us to take God out of our vocabulary,” said Cheryl Whitfield, founder of Houston National Memorial Ladies.  “I could’ve kept my mouth shut and let things happen, but when it comes to standing up for your belief in God and giving comfort to the families, I don’t want to regret not saying anything,” Whitfield said. “We all had to stand up for what we believe in.

Leftists are threatened by public displays of religion.  Unless of course someone invokes Allah, Mohammed, or the Mayan jaguar goddess Ixchel, then ain’t diversity just grand!

This is just the exception, you say?  Why should we care?  Because this isn’t the exception.  Militant secularism is, and has been, waging a not so subtle, and relentless war on Christianity for decades now.  If you haven’t noticed then you haven’t been paying attention.  Freedom FROM religion!  This has been modern Liberalism’s trajectory for going on 50 years, and it will only get worse.  Are you a Liberal christian?  Then choose your side.  Christianity or Liberalism.  You cannot serve two masters.

Ministry of Propaganda: How They want you to Remember Margaret Thatcher

All your beliefs are belong to us.

Who needs rehabilitation camps when there are so many other easier ways to condition you!  The Perception Shapers are at it again.  George Orwell said those who control the past, can mold the future.  Liberal Hollywood has learned this lesson well in their depictions of historical characters like Che Guevara, Ronald Reagan, and now Margaret Thatcher.  Historians on the Napoleonic era are well aware that Napoleon wasn’t the squat little fat fellow of popular memory, from which today we derive the term “Napoleon complex.”  That was just British propaganda.  And yet, that’s how he will be remembered for all time.  His popular image is sealed in amber.  Similarly, the memory of our Thatchers, Reagans and Ws by future generations won’t be decided by their scholars and historians, but by today’s myth makers and propagandists.  With their cinematic depictions of the past they can control the future.

Thatcher Depiction plumbs new depths by portraying her as destroyed by dementia and guilt about her record

The cameras have not even started rolling on a new film being made about Margaret Thatcher’s life in which she is expected to be played by Meryl Streep, but already the project has been tainted by controversy over the negative way it intends to portray the former Prime Minister.

Meryl does Maggie

On first hearing about the production last month, a member of Lady Thatcher’s family, who wishes to remain anonymous, said they were ‘appalled’ to learn that she will be depicted as a dementia sufferer looking back on her career with regret.

Describing the film as a ‘Left-wing fantasy’ designed to cast doubt on her political legacy, her relatives and supporters are once again having to accept that, where the world’s best-known female politician of the 20th century is concerned, art rarely reflects life.

Told by means of flashbacks of her political life, the film opens with the octagenarian Lady Thatcher sitting alone in a sparsely furnished drawing room muttering to herself.  She is a melancholic, ghostly figure whose world has shrunk to almost nothing thanks to her declining mental powers. It soon becomes apparent that she frequently holds conversations with her late husband, Sir Denis, seemingly unaware that he is dead.

As the film unfolds, she sifts through some of the more controversial points of her 11-and-a-half years in office – notably the Falklands War and the Brighton bombing – questioning the decisions she made, rueful of the consequences of her extraordinary achievements.  In old age, the famous conviction politician is apparently racked by doubt; the unavoidable impression given is that this once-towering figure has been reduced to a pathetic figure consumed by doubts and fears.

The thread running through the film is that the price of power has been so high for Lady Thatcher that she is seeing out her days in a state of anxiety rather than peace, scarred by her time as Prime Minister.  Any sense of triumph in her career, or the historic greatness of her achievements, is absent from the script. In one scene she is shown tearfully wondering whether it was really necessary to sink the Argentine ship the General Belgrano, killing 323 men, as it purportedly retreated during the 1982 Falklands conflict.

Read the disgusting rest here.

Conservative women and minorities are an existential threat to the modern Left.  If the Democratic Party loses its edge with the female and minority demographic, it goes the way of the Dodo.  They are toast.  Conservative women and minorities must therefore be destroyed at all costs.  So does anybody seriously believe this won’t be a hit job on Thatcher?  A sneak peek here:

And now for the Prime Minister Thatcher you won’t see in a Hollywood propaganda piece– the real Maggie Thatcher:

Cultural elite Issues new Marching orders: Skip the Fourth of July

Fourth of July: Young Republicans on parade.

While Leftist elites admit below that patriotism makes people more conservative, our Leftist media will make damn sure it doesn’t make the news.

Harvard: July 4th Parades Are Right-Wing

Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend’s July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.  “Fourth of July celebrations in the United States shape the nation’s political landscape by forming beliefs and increasing participation, primarily in favor of the Republican Party,” said the report from Harvard.

“The political right has been more successful in appropriating American patriotism and its symbols during the 20th century. Survey evidence also confirms that Republicans consider themselves more patriotic than Democrats. According to this interpretation, there is a political congruence between the patriotism promoted on Fourth of July and the values associated with the Republican party. Fourth of July celebrations in Republican dominated counties may thus be more politically biased events that socialize children into Republicans,” write Harvard Kennedy School Assistant Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott and Bocconi University Assistant Professor Andreas Madestam.

Their findings also suggest that Democrats gain nothing from July 4th parades, likely a shocking result for all the Democratic politicians who march in them.  “There is no evidence of an increased likelihood of identifying as a Democrat, indicating that Fourth of July shifts preferences to the right rather than increasing political polarization,” the two wrote.

The three key findings of those attending July 4th celebrations:

  • When done before the age of 18, it increases the likelihood of a youth identifying as a Republican by at least 2 percent.
  • It raises the likelihood that parade watchers will vote for a Republican candidate by 4 percent.
  • It boosts the likelihood a reveler will vote by about 1 percent and increases the chances they’ll make a political contribution by 3 percent.

What’s more, the impact isn’t fleeting. “Surprisingly, the estimates show that the impact on political preferences is permanent, with no evidence of the effects depreciating as individuals become older,”said the Harvard report.

Finally, the report suggests that if people are looking for a super-patriotic July 4th, though should head to Republican towns. “Republican adults celebrate Fourth of July more intensively in the first place.”

Not to worry, Libs,  There’s always May Day!

So there you have it, another reason why the Left hates America, a fundamentally patriotic country.  Yet notice how Harvard says the Right has “appropriated” patriotism, as if conservative patriotism was devised as part of a concerted political strategy in a smoky back room.  The Left is fond of making this claim in order to explain their own disgust with patriotism, as well as other aspects of our cultural heritage, which comes back to bite them at the polls.  It’s those wily Republicans!  The truth is, the Right never appropriated patriotism, nor the flag, nor the Bible, nor any of those cultural traditions that we conservatives love to celebrate.  It’s the Left who has tossed them into the rubbish bin of history.  Indeed, the very notion of nation-state is contrary to Marxist dogma, and it simply bleeds over into Liberal scorn for patriotism, and even anti-Americanism.  Recall Michelle Obama’s interesting comment about pride in America?  But don’t you DARE question their patriotism!

America is the Great Experiment.  This is a country of immigrants, a mish mash of peoples from across the globe.  As a result, we have no common blood or culture to bind us together the way virtually every other country on Earth does.  We don’t even have an official language, thanks to our good Liberal friends who oppose any such efforts.  And if you ask them, we don’t even have a common religion, as they insist America is not a Christian nation.  So what makes us American?  Why, our history!  And the democratic and freedom-loving values we derive from that history.  This is what we celebrate on the Fourth of July.   And if we don’t commemorate that, then what’s left to bind us as Americans?

Nevertheless, the all-knowing cultural elite at Harvard has issued your new marching orders, and you, the good modern Lib that you are will simply accept them because they know best.  You got the memo, now follow it.

But what are all you old school JFK Liberals waiting for?  How much more evidence do you need before you finally realize today’s Democrat party is not the party of John Kennedy?  How much more proof do you need before you decide modern Liberalism is no longer your home and you jump ship?  I did.  So join me, the water’s warm over here!

“Imagine” this: John Lennon was a closet Rightwinger

Secret Reagan fan.

Lennon was a closet Republican: Assistant

Pot-addled hippies and Lefty hipsters the world over are having a mental breakdown right about now.  The guy responsible for the Left’s counter culture, anti-religious, anti-patriotism, anti-war, anti-capitalist anthem “Imagine” was a secret Rightwinger.  Love it!

John Lennon was a closet Republican, who felt a little embarrassed by his former radicalism, at the time of his death – according to the tragic Beatles star’s last personal assistant.

Fred Seaman worked alongside the music legend from 1979 to Lennon’s death at the end of 1980 and he reveals the star was a Ronald Reagan fan who enjoyed arguing with left-wing radicals who reminded him of his former self.

In new documentary Beatles Stories, Seaman tells filmmaker Seth Swirsky Lennon wasn’t the peace-loving militant fans thought he was while he was his assistant.

He says, “John, basically, made it very clear that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan because he was really sour on (Democrat) Jimmy Carter.

“He’d met Reagan back, I think, in the 70s at some sporting event… Reagan was the guy who had ordered the National Guard, I believe, to go after the young (peace) demonstrators in Berkeley, so I think that John maybe forgot about that… He did express support for Reagan, which shocked me.

“I also saw John embark in some really brutal arguments with my uncle, who’s an old-time communist… He enjoyed really provoking my uncle… Maybe he was being provocative… but it was pretty obvious to me he had moved away from his earlier radicalism.

“He was a very different person back in 1979 and 80 than he’d been when he wrote Imagine. By 1979 he looked back on that guy and was embarrassed by that guy’s naivete.”

Hateful facts: Virtually ALL rapes in Oslo last year committed by “Non-Westerners”

These facts are “hateful” because they don’t conform to the Liberal orthodoxy of multiculturalism.  From the Diversity is Strength™ files: In Oslo all sexual assaults involving rape in the past year have been committed by men of non-western background.  This was the conclusion of a police report published today.  This means that every single rape assault in the last five years, where the rapist could be identified, he was a man of foreign origin. 

Ain’t multiculturalism just grand!  The terms “non-Western” and “foreign” in this context means Middle Eastern and Muslim.

Who cares if your women are being raped, at least you have a large selection of ethnic restaurants at which to wine and dine them!  What is happening to Scandinavian women reminds me of something in one of CCHQ’s very first posts over a year ago.  From The Wilding of Sarah Palin, an old school feminist lamenting the damage feminism has caused to women also has a few choice words for Liberal men:

Like for most feminists, it was a no-brainer for me to become a Democrat. Liberal men, not conservatives, were the ones devoted to women’s issues. They marched at my side in support of abortion rights. They were enthusiastic about women succeeding in the workplace.

As time went on, I had many experiences that should have made me rethink my certainty. But I remained nestled in cognitive dissonance — therapy jargon for not wanting to see what I didn’t want to see.

One clue: the miscreants who were brutalizing me didn’t exactly look Reagan-esque. In middle and high schools, they were minority kids enraged about forced busing. On the streets of New York City and Berkeley, they were derelicts and hoodlums.

Another red flag: while liberal men did indeed hold up those picket signs, they didn’t do anything else to protect me. In fact, their social programs enabled bad behavior and bred chaos in urban America. And when I was accosted by thugs, those leftist men were missing in action.

What else should have tipped me off? Perhaps the fact that so many men in ultra-left Berkeley are sleazebags. Rarely a week goes by that I don’t hear stories from my young female clients about middle-aged men preying on them. With the rationale of moral relativism, these creeps feel they can do anything they please.

Bottom line?  The socialist/Leftist/Liberal men of Europe who’ve decided mass Islamic immigration is the way to go CAN’T/WON’T DO ANYTHING TO PROTECT THEIR WOMEN.  They are missing in action.

The Bows of Obama: China’s President Hu is in town again

With China’s Hu Jintao: As usual, Barack’s the only one bowing.

Let’s take a look inside Lefty’s mind, shall we?  CCHQ has cracked the code.  Much is made of President Obama’s apologies and compulsion to kowtow before the world.  I personally don’t like it, but I also think perhaps too much is made of it.  I don’t agree, for instance, that Obama is bowing before his Chinese or Saudi “masters” when he kowtows to the likes of Hu Jintao and King Fahd.  In fact, I now believe the opposite is true.

Pull my finger, Whitey: No bows for Canada’s president Harper.

Here, Obama doesn’t kowtow, but instead practically jams his finger in Harper’s face.  I don’t think Obama was intentionally trying to be rude, even though that’s what it looks like.  The image is deceiving.  But neither is Obama trying to be deferential, and that’s a fact.  It’s also key.  With Harper, he doesn’t feel he has to be deferential.  You see, Harper is a white male, and therefore an equal; while Hu Jintao is a squinty-eyed Chinaman, and “inferior.”  Hu belongs to that exalted and romanticized category of lovable fuzzballs known as “the Other.”

Tampa Bay Mayor, Iorio, qualifies as “the Other.”

Asian women too count as lovable little fuzzballs.  White Libs view “the Other” as historical victims of the White Male Global Establishment™ who are in need of special protection and deference.  Thus, when a Lib approaches the Other he doesn’t do it as he would a peer member like President Harper.  He approaches with an added sense of caution, deference, and sensitivity due to one he perceives as injured.  He’s terrified of causing offense to the historically battered and bruised the Other, and he uses every opportunity to reassure the Other that he recognizes and understands his/her special status.

This serves a dual purpose– it both “uplifts” the Other, and, more importantly, the bowing demonstrates to those with the eyes to see just how sensitive and finely tuned is his worldview.  Libs take great pride in their perceived understanding of all things culture, and they want others to know.  But–as you can see from the pictures above–it’s not a mutual understanding between the two parties because the objects of these self-conscious attempts at “deference” are caught just as flatfooted as the rest of us are.  Notice they aren’t bowing to him in return.  Rather, it seems to me they’re slightly puzzled and bemused by Obama’s awkward attempts at ritual humility.

The irony in how Obama’s kowtowing has been covered is that–far from bowing to “his masters”–he’s actually bowing to his inferiors.  It’s an overt sign of “humility” that lowers him to their level, betraying a subconscious belief that he is a superior, and therefore must go out of his way to demonstrate that he isn’t.  It’s a mix of both compassion and condescension.  In a word, it’s White Guilt. And White Guilt compels the Liberal to prove he does not see the Other as inferior, the way all those nasty and racist Republican rightwingers do.  So he bows, literally and figuratively lowering himself to an equal status.  But this only betrays his own sense of superiority, for which he feels guilty.  All this has succeeded in accomplishing, therefore, is to reveal (for those who have the eyes to see it) his own ever-so-soft and subtle racism.

But Barack Obama’s black, you say?  Well, yes and no.  He lives with one foot in each world, not fully a part of either.  Based on his upbringing, it’s more accurate to describe him as “Third Culture.”  Ideologically speaking, however, he’s a Liberal, and White Guilt has more to do with ideology and worldview than it does race.  Also, he’s bowing as the American President, not necessarily as an African-American.  As such he’s on a higher tier than the rest of humanity, which means he’s looking down from above.  Lowering himself before the Other, therefore, is practically an obligation.  It’s an obligation he doesn’t owe to white male presidents like Harper of Canada who he actually does see as an equal.

Separation of Church & Society™: Christmas Parade now “Holiday Lights” Parade

War on Christmas?  What war on Christmas!  Right, Libturds?  lol  Multiculturalism means NO Christian culture, so Senator Inhofe (R)–who has attended the parade since he was a kid– says stick that parade where the sun don’t shine.  Love it.

CARLSON: So, what you’re saying is, that it’s not like you’re not tolerant of other religions. … What you’re saying is — what a lot of people are saying in our society right now — which is if we’re supposed to be tolerate of all these other religions, which pretty much everyone accepts, why does it always seem like Christianity is the one to take the boot?

INHOFE: They’re the ones to get the hit. … I think there are a lot people of other faiths who wonder also, why do they always pick on the Christians?

Liberal Protestants Engaging in historical revisionism concerning Jews and Israel

Their "brand"

And they wonder why their very Liberal “mainline” denominations are going extinct?  I grew up in the Presbyterian Church (USA) as the son of Presbyterian missionaries.  My grandfather was a Presbyterian pastor.  I went to a Presbyterian college.  I have served as an Elder in the Presbyterian church.  I have been a director of one of their non-profit agencies.  My credentials were impeccable.  I left the Presbyterian church going on 10 years now.  How come?  It pains me to say this, but that church has become an absolute DISGRACE.  They are dying because they now stand for modern Liberalism, and little else.  Here is one of the many reasons why:

Presbyterians Against Israel

In many ways, the second half of the 20th century was a high point for Jewish-Christian relations. Today, however, the anti-Israel politics of certain powerful Christian bodies hampers interfaith relations and threatens to breathe new life into medieval doctrine that demonized Jews for hundreds of years.

In 2007, the World Council of Churches, an umbrella organization of mostly liberal Protestants claiming a membership of 580 million worshipers, convened the “Churches Together for Peace and Justice in the Middle East Conference.” The conference produced the Amman Call, a document that condemned violence and endorsed a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but denied Israel’s right to a future as a Jewish state.

In 2008, the World Council of Churches convened a group of Protestant and Catholic theologians to review the underpinnings of Christian attitudes toward Israel. (No Jews were invited.) The group published the so-called Bern Perspective, which, among other things, instructed Christians to understand all biblical references to Israel only metaphorically.

This understanding denies the connection between today’s Jews and Moses, Jeremiah and Isaiah. It marks a return to “replacement theology,” the medieval view that the Church has replaced Israel in God’s plan and that all biblical references to Israel refer to the “new Israel”—that is, to Christians. For centuries, that view was the theological basis for denying rights to Jews in Church-dominated Europe.

In 2009, on the first day of Chanukah (which Jews again celebrate this week), a group of Christian Palestinians issued the Kairos Palestine Document, which was immediately published on the World Council of Churches website. The document calls for a general boycott of Israel and argues that Christians’ faith requires them to side with the “oppressed,” meaning the Palestinians. It speaks of the evils of the Israeli “occupation,” yet is silent on any evils committed by Palestinians, including the Hamas terrorists who now govern the Gaza Strip.

The Kairos document also describes the Jewish connection to Israel only in terms of the Holocaust, denying 3,000 years of Jewish domicile. “Our presence in this land, as Christian and Muslim Palestinians, is not accidental but rather deeply rooted in the history and geography of this land,” it states. “The West sought to make amends for what Jews had endured in the countries of Europe, but it made amends on our account and in our land.”

The Kairos document quickly won accolades from religious groups including from the Presbyterian Church (USA), which has 2.3 million American members and in 2004 was the first mainline American Protestant group to call for divestment from Israel.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center will soon meet with the president of the World Council of Churches to urge an end to its campaign against Israel and the Jewish people. Like anti-Israel diplomatic and academic campaigns, such religious calls and writings won’t improve the life of a single Palestinian. But they will certainly embolden terrorists and anti-Semites, and cast carefully nurtured interfaith relations into darkness and disarray.

The Multicultis Who Stole Christmas

Crews remove "Christmas" from Dilworth Plaza.

War on Christmas?  What war on Christmas!  Isn’t that what Libs always start saying about this time of the year?  In most cases, multi means many or various.  But Lefty PC cannot abide Judeo-Christian.  Which is why “multiculturalism”  has generally come to mean no culture at all. At least when it comes to the Christian holidays.  Just as Stalin disappeared Trotsky, modern Liberals disappear culture– all in the name of, you guessed it, multiculturalism!

Let’s call it the German ‘Holiday’ Village

It’s that season again, which means that for the third year in a row, the German Christmas Village has set up a cozy collection of wooden booths and tree vendors in Dilworth Plaza on the west side of City Hall.  But a few shoppers noticed something amiss yesterday on the tall metal archways signaling the entrances to the shops. The archways had just one word on top – “Village.”

Sounds festive, eh?

It turns out that the letters spelling “Christmas” were removed yesterday afternoon from the archways on the north and west sides of the plaza, at the request of Managing Director Richard Negrin. They will be replaced with the word “Holiday.”

City spokesman Mark McDonald said Negrin asked for the change after the city received complaints from workers and residents.  “As a city of great diversity, one shouldn’t be surprised that there’s a difference of views when it comes to symbols and words,” McDonald said.

Thomas Bauer, of the German American Marketing Inc., which runs the Village, said he was happy to change the sign. He said the brochures and the posters would keep the Christmas Village title.  “People have to go to public buildings. They shouldn’t feel offended,” Bauer said, stressing that the name was not intended to upset anyone. “It’s been very successful the last two years. People like the name. We built it like a German Christmas market. We did not think a lot about it.”

With Nat King Cole music blasting through loudspeakers, and evergreen trees at every turn, the village is clearly focused on Dec. 25. But the ornaments and decorations for sale are largely of the secular variety, like elves, Santas and colored balls.

Separation of church and society!  Is this what you signed up for when you jumped on the multi-culti bandwagon, gentle readers?  So who exactly are these people who are so offended by Christmas?  Why,  WHITE LIBERALS, that’s who!  Nobody else.  Of course, they are offended on behalf of all those other non-Christian, non-Western people who should be offended but generally aren’t!  lol  Chalk it up to NeoTolerance. Philly spokesperson Mark McDonald says they removed ‘Christmas’ from the sign because of the hue and cry from city residents.  All six or seven of them:

Leftism: the “Anti” Ideology

Dead eyes, like a doll's eyes.

Doesn’t that mug shot make you sick to the stomach?  I almost wish there was a ticking time bomb out there forcing us to lay him on a board and painfully wring its location from him– but not too quickly, mind you.  Nice and slow.  Alas, thanks to the FBI it never came to that.  And no thanks at all to the Leftists on the Portland, OR city council who are more concerned about moral posturing and ideological preening than the safety of their constituents.  If left to them dozens, if not hundreds of Oregonians might be lying dead today if the FBI hadn’t intercepted this monster before somebody else did.  And apparently it was only a matter of time before somebody did get to him.

Portland Rejected FBI who eventually saved city from terrorist attack

In 2005, leaders in Portland, Oregon, angry at the Bush administration’s conduct of the war on terror, voted not to allow city law enforcement officers to participate in a key anti-terror initiative, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. On Friday, that task force helped prevent what could have been a horrific terrorist attack in Portland.  Now city officials say they might re-think their participation in the task force — because Barack Obama is in the White House.

Reading the FBI affidavit describing Islamist terror suspect Mohamed Osman Mohamud’s plan to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square is a chilling experience.  Mohamud, a Somali-born naturalized U.S. citizen who attended Oregon State University, told undercover FBI agents he dreamed of performing acts of jihad in which hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Americans would die.  “Do you remember when 9/11 happened when those people were jumping from skyscrapers?” Mohamud asked the agents, according to the affidavit.  “I thought that was awesome.”

In months of preparation with men he thought were co-conspirators but were in fact undercover agents, Mohamud backed up his talk with action.  After initially making email contact with Islamist radicals in Pakistan, he took part in constructing what he hoped would be an extraordinarily powerful bomb, scouted the best location for the attack, parked the van containing the bomb near the Christmas tree crowd, and, finally, dialed the cell phone number he believed would detonate the explosives. “I want whoever is attending that event to leave either dead or injured,” Mohamud said of the 25,000 people expected to take part in the event.

What is ironic is that the operation that found and stopped Mohamud is precisely the kind of law enforcement work that Portland’s leaders, working with the American Civil Liberties Union, rejected during the Bush years. In April 2005, the Portland city council voted 4 to 1 to withdraw Portland city police officers from participating in the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. Mayor Tom Potter said the FBI refused to give him a top-secret security clearance so he could make sure the officers weren’t violating state anti-discrimination laws that bar law enforcement from targeting suspects on the basis of their religious or political beliefs.

But here’s the kicker.  Portland is now joining the FBI task force because Obama’s president!

Now, there are indications that the Mohamud case might cause city leaders to change their mind about the FBI and the war on terror. Current mayor Sam Adams, who says he was not aware of the Mohamud investigation until after Mohamud had been arrested, told the Oregonian newspaper that he might ask the city council to reconsider the decision to pull out of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.  Because he now realizes the city was wrong?  Not at all. “[Adams] stressed that he has much more faith in the Obama administration and the leadership of the U.S. Attorney’s office now than he did in 2005,” the paper reported.

Leftism is deadly.  Read the rest.

This was the silver lining for me when Obama won the presidency.  His victory would allow Liberals and Democrats to begin acting like Americans again.  We could now fight terrorism in earnest!  And at least in mayor Adam’s case I appear to have been right.  Leftists like mayor Adams aren’t pro-Islamism, and they certainly aren’t pro-terrorism.  So what gives?  Easy.  We have already discussed this at CCHQ. During the Cold War, Liberals weren’t necessarily proCommunist. Rather, they were anti those who were anticommunist. In other words, they were anti all things “the Right.”  If conservatives during the Cold War were hawks, it was the Left’s job to be soft on communism.  It was their job to be anti-the anti-Soviets. In knee-jerk fashion, they mocked the likes of Ronald Reagan as “chickenhawks” and warmongers.  That same impulse to be anti-all things “the Right” is alive and well today, compelling modern Liberals to be anti-the anti-terrorists. Before the Age of Obama, they were anti-Bush, anti-war on terror, as surely as they were anti-FBI terrorism task force in Portland, OR.  They are the true reactionaries.  We at CCHQ identified this syndrome back in August, and now the Weekly Standard confirms it:

Anti-Anti-Islamism

When Cat Stevens was introduced at Jon Stewart’s recent “Rally to Restore Sanity,” the musician also known by his Muslim name Yusuf Islam was greeted with warm applause and howls of approval. It was a strange reception coming from a culturally savvy, mostly twentysomething audience, for while Stevens’s songs are a staple in the 1970s schlock-folk canon, he is best known these days for having supported Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s 1989 fatwa demanding the execution of novelist Salman Rushdie.

Stevens has tried to whitewash his record over the years, without ever acknowledging or apologizing for his comments, including his response to a British interviewer’s question as to whether he would attend a demonstration to burn an effigy of the writer; Stevens answered glibly that he “hoped that it’d be the real thing.”

“I don’t know why no one in that crowd booed Stevens, or heckled him when he was introduced,” says the British author Nick Cohen, who was in contact with Rushdie after the rally. “Rushdie phoned Stewart, who said he was sorry if it upset him, but it was clear Stewart didn’t really care.”

Presumably what mattered to Stewart and the rally’s cosponsor Stephen Colbert was less Stevens’s willingness to join in the bloodlust of the Islamic Republic of Iran (the fatwa has been reaffirmed by Iran’s current supreme leader, Ali Khamenei) than the fact that Stevens/Islam had been put on a no-fly list by the Bush administration. Never mind that the folk singer had been identified as having donated to a Muslim charity with ties to Hamas; anyone considered unfriendly by Bush is an ally.

This is the essence of modern Liberalism.  It isn’t a coherent, systematic belief system or ideology.  They are simply anti the Right, anti conservative.  That’s why their tent is so large and fractious.  Many are the Right’s enemies.  But they agree on one thing, and one thing only– they despise the Right.  Little else binds them.

Jesusland – How They see You

Filed under: Entertainment, Liberalism, Nation — Tags: — Jesusland @ 13:05

The America you are looking for is the America you will find, and if this is all they see then by god these people hate America.  You are “the other” to them as surely as they claim the brownies of the world are alien to you.  Jesusland is a catchy little tune by the talented Ben Folds, but this elitist young hippie looking judgmentally down his nose at society seems pretentious and is gravely annoying to me.  There is nothing sincere or intellectually honest about this.  As if “Jesus” or religion is what ails us.  As if this footage couldn’t have been shot in New Jersey.  As if a proctologist’s view of our country is the real America, and I’d want to trade it all in for the ghettos of New York, San Francisco, Paris or Stockholm.  Just another small peak into the secular progressive mind.  Their alienation from the American people is complete.

Down the tracks
beautiful McMansions on a hill
that overlook a highway
with riverboat casinos and you still
have yet to see a soul

Demographer: Islam to dominate Britain in 50 years

Does CCHQ give a RAT’S @SS about anybody’s skin color?  No.  (This is about CULTURE, not race.)  But the weight of a thoroughly Islamized Europe IN THIS CENTURY brings me to my knees.  This is what the fall of the West looks like, and it is a direct and proximate result of the ideology of decline we know as Leftism and it’s vile doctrine of multiculturalism.

White British people will be in a MINORITY in their own country by 2066

David Coleman, professor of demography at Oxford University, said they will make up less than HALF the population in just over 50 years.  And soaring immigrant birthrates mean white British kids will be in a minority of youngsters in the UK even sooner. The dramatic decline will be fuelled by record-breaking levels of immigration, coupled with the departure of thousands of Brits for a better life abroad, the population analyst said.

Prof Coleman’s controversial claim will raise fresh questions about whether Britain can sustain the influx of hundreds of thousands of immigrants every year.  It comes as Home Secretary Theresa May today gets a report from the Migration Advisory Committee on what cap she should impose on migrant workers next year.

Writing in Prospect magazine, Prof Coleman warned the huge numbers of foreigners landing on our shores will “transform” the UK. He said official projections estimate the UK’s population will rocket to 77 million by 2051 – and 85 million by 2083.

The expert went on: “On those assumptions the ‘white British’ population would decline to 45 million (59 per cent of the total) by 2051.  “Were the assumptions to hold, the ‘white British’ population of Britain would become the minority after about 2066. It’s a milestone that would be passed much earlier in younger age-groups.”

He added: “The US, by comparison, is now about 65 per cent white (non-Hispanic) and that group is projected to fall to 50 per cent by 2045.”  Even if the number of immigrants was cut so that new arrivals matched the number of Brits leaving, the “white British” population would still fall below 50 per cent by the end of the century.

Prof Coleman said this would “represent an enormous change to national identity – cultural, political, economic and religious”.

Middle Schooler Told to Remove American Flag from Bike

Want more proof modern Liberalism is a cultural disease?  Here the multiculturalists order a middle schooler, a child, to remove a small American flag from his bike because it might “stir racial tension.”  On Veteran’s Day.

DENAIR – 13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He’s had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was asked told to take it down.

A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property.
[…]
Cody’s grandfather says the school was concerned about racial tensions or uprisings because of the flag. He feels if there was really a problem it should have been brought up two months ago, not during Veterans week.

God bless America.  Here’s how some in the community chose to respond to this madness.
