It’s a fairly long read, so give yourself some time. I could knit pick with this or that part, but the the good and juicy parts of this far outweigh my crankiness.

1. We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, so that’s why I’m going to have Goldman Sachs fund my Presidential campaign.
2. We believe in science, which means we must believe that human evolution totally stopped in regards to brain development 200,000 years ago.
3. We believe that the Internet shouldn’t be rigged to benefit big corporations, instead it should be rigged to benefit never-do-evil paragons of virtue like Google.
4. We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means opening the borders.
5. We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them right up to the point when their work is replaced by robots.
6. We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt, and that’s why I’ll always be committed to the set of Democrat Party policies that allow colleges and universities to raise college costs year in and year out.
7. We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means letting all the world’s grifters in to collect SSI.
8. We believe—I can’t believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work, and it’s a good thing too, because we won that battle decades ago.
9. We believe that equal means equal; everybody except for me will be equally impoverished and miserable, and as men and women of science, we have faith in equality.
10. We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means letting the whole world flood in, because slave wages and tuberculosis and Ebola outbreaks and the demographics of an international airport and bowling alone…and all that jazz.
11. And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. I will fight with every last drop of your blood to make Hobby Lobby pay for your abortifacient drugs!
And the main tenet of conservatives’ philosophy? “I got mine. The rest of you are on your own.” Oops, my bad, that’s more like my philosophy, I got mine, the rest of you don’t have a way to pass yourselves off as part Indian.
A bonus 12th commandment:
“In my quest to end corporate welfare, I am proud to announce today that I support the Export-Import Bank.”
And that sign advertises this website, which seems to be a New York-based group that pretty much demands that blacks and Hispanics be exempt from criminal law. Its signatories are almost a list of who’s who in the crackpot far left, including at least one overt communist.
I wonder what they’re planning for October. Or rather, I wonder if they’re planning anything that’s going to illicit any more than a collective yawn from the rest of the world.
Most of what they want, Mayor Oil Driller has already given them. SQF is gone, and weed is de facto legalized. Yet they’re still upset.
You’re not paranoid unless they’re really out to get you.
Yeah, you can take that to mean that if someone is really out to get you, then your paranoia about people out to get you isn’t paranoia.
But the sarcastic point that phrase is trying to make is that people’s paranoia warps their perception of reality. If you’re paranoid enough to think that a lot of people are out to get you, you are going to find evidence of that.
With that, let me give you a paragraph from this piece:
There is no venue more receiving, that more struggles to accommodate, than universities. They have codes and classes and whole courses to instruct on the vile institutions of racism — and yet to read the news is to come away with the idea that every day some campus is a repulsive hotbed of bigotry.
Definitely read the whole thing.
It’s like the late Lawrence Auster said, though this isn’t the exact quote: The more sensitive people are to *-ism or *-phobia, the more of it they will “find.” I could add that it invokes a vicious dynamic cycle, where oversensitivity to *-isms and *-phobias leads people to finding lots of it, which fuels more sensitivity, which fuels more evidence, and so on.
And where does it all end? Progressives in Cambridge, Massachusetts hiding under their beds hoping that the Klan rally and march du jour through Cambridge passes them by, all the while their nervous shaking hands are holding a flashlight in one hand and a pen in the other hand that’s writing a check to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“There has been a longitudinal study that finds the longer you are in the tea party, the more racist you become,” he said, according to the MacIver Institute, which covered the conference.
I think what is really happening there is that white people who gravitate toward aracial rightist movements (of which the TPM is the latest of many in the past and present) go there thinking they’re really a secret racist movement. But once they hang around long enough and finally figure out they’re a bunch of negro-lovers, they leave and search out actual racialist-nationalist organizations. I think what Zeskind, MacIver, and the rest of them think in error is that the TPM is some sort of gateway drug that makes white people racially minded, when, like I just said, they were already racially minded, went to the aracial right thinking they were really racial, but eventually quit in disappointment.

We now know this document was for real, and not a fake.
Hanover, New Hampshire
According to that sourcelink, a bunch of students who refer to themselves as “Concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students” wrote a letter to administrators at Dartmouth to threaten “physical action” if the administrators do not respond to their list of demands.
And you can read the demands at the link.
There is debate over whether this list of demands and the whole story is real or a parody.
Either way, it makes me wonder:
Why are we to fear the “physical action” of “concerned Asian, black, Latin@, Native, undocumented, queer, and differently-abled students?” Do we really fear that Jose Rodriguez, a black Hispanic homosexual wheelchair-bound illegal alien from the Dominican Republic, will throw a lukewarm cup of Starbucks coffee in somebody’s face?
As far as the @ in “Latin@,” I think it’s meant to be interpreted as both “O” and “A,” so that it’s both “Latino” and “Latina” in one word without having to write out both.
They’re both wrong, BTW. Which is usually the case when the Stupid Party and the kook left start “arguing” about race.
“Does the right want a civil war?,” asks some nobody crackpot on some nutroots blog.
And some of you e-mailed to me as if I was actually going to post a link to it and comment on its content.
Morbidly obese chance.
Really, haven’t I taught you anything about shock value nut talk?
In a room full of screaming retards, the loudest retard gets all the attention. And that’s why the retards keep screaming more and more loudly. Ignore the ‘tards and it’ll be a silent night in Tardville.
A Steve Sailer commenter found this pic of today’s Trayvon rally at Washington, D.C.’s Union Station:
What don’t you see?
For what I’m thinking, we have here the perfect control group to solve the mental pathology of pathological altruism. Either that, or we have a whole lot of crackpots to commit.
Ironically, Washington, D.C. is a city doing everything it can to rid itself of its own Trayvons (“gentrification”).
New York City
The white paramilitaries like the Klu Klux Klan, the Red Shirts and later the White Citizens Councils and the John Birch Society — co-founded by Fred Koch, of Koch Industries and father to Charles and David Koch, who helped bankroll the Tea Party movement and Americans for Prosperity — terrorized and murdered thousands of Black people. These lynchings deepened the disenfranchisement of Black people.
So now the commiecrackpots are now working on the theory that the Koch family founded the Citizens Councils?
Newsflash, crackpots: Robert “Tut” Patterson, of Patterson’s Axioms fame, founded the Citizens Councils. And Robert Welch founded the JBS.
San Jose, California
So of course Michael Bloomberg, the Mayor of Crackpot City (for a little while longer, anyway) was there. So were all the big name kooks.
National teachers union leader Lily Eskelsen Garcia offered a prediction Friday about gun lobbyists and politicians who are indifferent to the carnage of gun violence.
“I’m not an ordained minister, I’m not a theologian, but these guys are going to hell,” the National Education Association’s vice president said during a panel discussion at the Netroots Nation convention of liberal online activists.
In that case, hell will be the only hovel of eternal damnation that people will actually be trying to get into.
Meanwhile, most of us untouchable hell-bound gun nuts have moved on to immigration.

Rasmussen: 26% of Obama Supporters (And Shocking Number of Gov’t Workers) See Tea Party as Nation’s ‘Top Terror Threat’
A Rasmussen poll released Thursday indicates that 26% of President Obama’s supporters see the Tea Party as the nation’s “top terror threat.”
Perhaps more shockingly, a staggering 20% of government workers apparently hold a similar view, ranking the Tea Party as a greater national security risk than radical Muslims.
“Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims,” the report says.
If your paycheck comes from government, of course you’re going to be scared of the political movement that wants to shrink the size of government. If you approve of the President, of course you’re going to be cool with Muslims, by definition.
Oooh, I didn’t just say that, did I? Have I gone too far, or have I not gone far enough?
It’s not crazy, it’s neo-Marxism taken to its “logical” end. That is, child rearing as a collective state function.
“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have.” That’s how you know her conclusion is wacko, because that underlying premise is flat out wrong. Really, you can stop watching this video after the first ten seconds or after Miss Harris-Perry’s first thirteen words.
Uh oh. The intersectionality between race and LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH yielded a car wreck.
What happened to “love is just love?” One would think that a relationship that is both homosexual and interracial would catapult the lucky couple to the top of the totem pole of tolerance.
The good news is that this isn’t anything that one big group shower wouldn’t solve.
Everything you need to know about Tom Perez is in the above picture. One, what he is, and two, who appointed him.
That’s enough for me to say “Hell No.”
As in Illinois state prison.
And they’ll be among people (hateful vicious Chicago blacks) who don’t care about their “anti-racist” credentials.
The Tinley Park Five “anarchists” (neo-Marxist losers) look every bit the common stereotype they have of us. Which is why they hold these stereotypes of us to begin with — Projection.
I’ve never seen a bunch of poorer or sorer winners than the left.
We were generally worried that a Romney win would bring out the unhinged kook left in full force, and a Romney win would mean an Obama loss, which would provoke black riots. But for the riots, which there was no way we were going to get because Obama didn’t lose, turns out we need not have worried. The kook left is even more unhinged than ever even though it won, and even though Republicans held the House, John Boehner is even more useless and feckless than he was 22 days ago. What fell out of the design of Obama winning is that it also served to smoke out the anti-white bastards on the “conservative” GOPee side.
Eric Holder’s curious past is reminiscent of Howard Mechanic. He helped firebomb the Army ROTC office at Washington University in 1970, then went out on the lam before he was due to start the Federal prison time he drew from that. He was discovered living as “Gary Tredway” in Scottsdale, Arizona, and the only reason that happened is that Mechanic living as Treadway ran for and won a seat on the Scottsdale City Council. In 1999, one of his political opponents started doing digging for unrelated matters, then one rock turned over led to another, and he was made. I was visiting the great uncle in Phoenix when the story broke.
Mechanic had to do not only the time he skipped out on, but also a few more years on top of that for various process crimes relating to being on the lam. He was let out only a few years ago.
Howard Mechanic will never be USAG. Oh no.
As if I had to ask.
And they wonder why Occupy DNC will be a big flop.

Unlike the Republican platform, this is not a meaningless piece of paper to most Democrat elected officials.

It’s not just our little corner of the political spectrum which is under siege from the anarchists.
Terror tactics: Science in the anarchists’ cross hairs
ROBERTO ADINOLFI had just left for work when the gunman struck, shooting him in the leg before fleeing on a motorbike.
Four days later, in a rambling and often cryptic letter to an Italian newspaper, a group calling itself the Olga Cell of the Informal Anarchist Federation claimed responsibility for the attack. It described Adinolfi, head of the nuclear energy company Ansaldo Nucleare, as “one of so many sorcerers of the atom” and warned: “With this action of ours we return to you a tiny part of the suffering that you, man of science, are pouring into the world.” The cell has threatened to carry out more attacks.
The non-fatal shooting in Genoa in May was the latest in a series of alleged anarchist attacks on scientists and engineers, including the attempted bombing of nanotechnology labs in Switzerland and Mexico. This wave of politically motivated violence has raised the question: why do anarchists hate science? Beyond the unsubtle threat of brute force, there are deeper issues that merit attention.
Let me take a stab at that question. No pun intended.
Anarchists are nothing more than left-wing extremist bum/loser young adult college students, who are doing what they do because some professor(s) in some “studies” field or some junk “social science” are egging them on. When a bunch of young men wearing the same clothing and armed with rifles take a hill, you would be safe to assume that an old man with multiple stars on his helmet is responsible. Likewise, when gangs of young bum far left wackos attack people, you’re safe to assume that there are old people with tenure behind it.
The junk social science and “studies” departments and the hard science departments have been engaged in a low level civil war within the confines of academia for a long time. These anarchist attacks on scientists are the former using its young brownshirts as shock troops against the latter.
Obama’s Third-Party History
New documents shed new light on his ties to a leftist party in the 1990s.
On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.
In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a “crackpot smear.” Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that “Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party.” I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.
Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.
The documents reveal that the New Party’s central aim was to move the United States steadily closer to European social democracy, a goal that Mitt Romney has also attributed to Obama. New Party leaders disdained mainstream Democrats, considering them tools of business, and promised instead to create a partnership between elected officials and local community organizations, with the goal of socializing the American economy to an unprecedented degree.
How is that “New?” That has been the M.O. of the regular Democrat Party since the days of LBJ. A good chunk of the Great Society was nothing more than stuffing money into the mouths of far-left activist goober groups.
Eyewitness recalls violence of Tinley Park restaurant attack
A horde of masked figures stormed the restaurant in a single-file line, wielding bats, claw hammers and metal batons — their presence announced when one shouted, “‘Hey, bitches, the ARA is going to f— up this place.’ ”
The Anti-Racist Action Group (ARA) is a “radical left-wing group” that often resorts to violent acts, said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit civil rights organization based in Montgomery, Ala. The attack, he said, “did more harm to the cause of fighting racism than almost anyone can imagine.”
Oh, okay. It’s not that ARA is totally wrong and fucked up in the head, it’s that the antics of its members makes the far left look bad.
If ARA was some right-wing group and the intended target inside the restaurant was some minority group, you can bet the SPLC would already have the civil lawsuit paperwork drawn up.
Some loser who needs to get a life.
Lawyers for three out-of-state men accused of plotting to firebomb police stations and other political targets during the NATO summit in Chicago complained Tuesday that their clients have been held in solitary confinement in Cook County Jail, calling their treatment “cruel and unusual.”
Michael Deutsch, an attorney for the National Lawyers Guild, said after a brief court hearing that the suspects, dubbed the “NATO 3″ by supporters, have been held since Saturday in “hospital-white” cells 24 hours a day and not allowed to communicate with anyone.
“They are totally in isolation from everyone else in the jail and each other,” Deutsch told reporters. “They have nothing to read. They have no writing material. It’s a kind of sensory deprivation situation.”
These are the plain ole regular Occutards who supposedly engaged in a firebombing plot, not the whacked out losers who call themselves “anti racist action” who make the former plain ole regular Occutards look sane by comparison. Even though they’re currently residing in the same edifice.
If they move these screwballs from solitary to gen pop, then the punishment is no longer cruel and unusual, it will be cruel and usual.
Only pea-brained morons who will never amount to anything would get involved with something called “anti-racist action.” These types make plain ole regular Occutards look sane by comparison.
Why does the world need these losers to be opposed to “racism” when all of Official America already is?
Needless to say, they will probably have a lot of up close and personal experience with the diversity they love so much for a handful of years in the Illinois state prison system. As a parting gift, they’ll come out with every STD known to man between the five of ‘em.
The motto of anti-racist action:
Former British PM heckled in Maine college speech
WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) — A handful of protesters briefly interrupted a Maine college graduation speech by British Prime Minister Tony Blair calling for world unity.
Blair addressed more than 400 Colby College graduates and their guests Sunday morning at the school’s 191st commencement in Waterville.
Police say the protesters shouted phrases such as “warmonger” and “war criminal” during Blair’s speech. One person was arrested.
I fail to see any real ideological difference between the speaker and the people protesting him.
Yes, NATO is gone, but the police state stays.
Thank you, BRA and Occutards.
To think, NATO was obsolete the moment the Berlin Wall was picked apart rock by rock.
