The video of two perpetually bitter whiners is enough to gag a maggot. Political Hat has background
One of the basic assumptions of the Progressive notion of “privilege” is that it is so pervasive that it becomes the overwhelming factor that leads straight White “cis-gendered” males (AKA the “Kyriarchy“) to be oppress everyone else. This, of course, is peddled by those who themselves see only in terms of treating people unequally, and viewing them as innately different, and become the monsters that they accuse the “Kyriarchy” of being. The notion of “privilege” and the belief that straight White “cis-gendered” males are always the oppressors, while everyone else is oppressed for being straight/White/&c. or is perpetuating the “Kyriarchy” through “interlocking hierarchies,” has been previously dismissed.
Frighteningly, this idiotic and hate-filled drivel is taught as absolute fact. The concept of America being a great country, that has demonstratedly been one of the most inclusive and tolerant in history to the point where any straying from that is guiltily self corrected, isbeing erased from schools. Rather than that narrative, we are being taught that the Founding Fathers were paragons of oppression and hate, and it is only by Progressingaway from that an towards the rabid Left’s deluded utopia will “equality” and “justice” be achieved, even if they must embrace inequality and injustice to do it.
One of the most obvious, and obnoxious examples, is from a “poetry” event called “Brave New Voices Grand Slam Finals” at the University of New Mexico. Warning, the below video will make you rage:
Liberalism is like on gargantuan pity orgy! It is as if they are only happy if they “feel” like a victim. What a sad way to go through life

Here are a few classics
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party emerged as the largest faction in a hotly contested parliamentary election on Tuesday, positioning the hard-liner to serve a new term as prime minister, according to exit polls.
But a lackluster performance by Likud, along with surprising gains by a centrist newcomer, raised the strong possibility that he will be forced to form a broad coalition.
The exit polls aired on Israel’s three major TV stations all forecast Likud along with its traditional hardline and religious allies, capturing a shaky majority of just 61 or 62 seats in the 120-member parliament. With official results trickling in throughout the night, it was possible that the two sides could end in deadlock.
In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Netanyahu said he would reach across the aisle and try to form a broad-based coalition.
“According to the exit polls, it is clear that Israel citizens decided that they want me to continue to serve as prime minister of Israel, and that I form the widest possible majority (coalition),” he said. “Already this evening I will begin working toward the widest possible government.”
Such a scenario would have deep implications for Mideast peace prospects. Netanyahu’s centrist opponents have said they would not join his government if he does not make a serious push for peace with the Palestinians.
Peace talks have been deadlocked throughout Netanyahu’s four-year term.
According to the exit polls, Netanyahu’s Likud-Yisrael Beitenu bloc captured just 31 seats, far below forecasts of recent opinion polls.
The two parties, running separately, had 42 seats in the outgoing house. In the biggest surprise, the centrist “Yesh Atid,” party headed by political newcomer Yair Lapid, captured as many as 19 seats, well above the forecasts. That would position Lapid to become either opposition leader or seek a major Cabinet post if he decides to join Netanyahu’s governing coalition.
Lapid campaigned on a platform calling for an end to the generous subsidies and draft exemptions given to ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities.
He also has said he would not serve as a “fig leaf” for a hard-line government. Lapid would likely seek deep concessions for Netanyahu in exchange for joining the government.
Barack Obama blew off Netanyahu this week. He refused to meet with the Israeli Prime Minister while he’s visiting the US. He said he was too busy but took the afternoon off on Thursday according to his schedule. He’s going to call Netanyahu between campaign stops today.
Meanwhile… Obama’s ambassador to the UN Susan Rice also blew off Netanyahu’s speech.
She went to lunch with Hillary and some other officials instead.

This man impresses me more all the time. He speaks from knowledge, and in a reasoned tone. The future of the GOP is bright as long as we keep electing men such as this

(Israel Today) — Israel’s largest daily newspaper, Yediot Ahronot, reported on Wednesday that the Obama Administration is threatening Israel to either apologize to Turkey over its bloody interception of a Gaza aid flotilla last year, or risk strained ties with Washington.
Israeli diplomats in Washington told the newspaper that they had received a communique from US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton insisting that the rift between Israel and Turkey was harming American interests in the region, such as affecting regime change in neighboring Syria.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan demands that Israel publicly apologize for intercepting a May 2010 “humanitarian aid” flotilla that tried to break Israel’s maritime blockade of the Gaza Strip. The flotilla had set sail from Turkey, and nine Turkish nationals were killed when they and others aboard the largest ship, the Mavi Marmara, attacked the Israeli boarding party. . . .
What’s worse, the Obama Administration’s pressure on Israel — the party it agrees is in the right — has also reportedly come in the form of a threat.
According to the Israeli diplomats cited in the Yediot report, they were told that if Israel does not comply with Clinton’s request to apologize to Turkey, the White House may suddenly find itself unable to continue building opposition to a unilateral Palestinian declaration of statehood at the UN next month.
“God forbid we apologize,” declared Israeli Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya’alon at a conference of Likud activists on Tuesday.
Thankfully, Israel will NOT bow down!
Israel will stick to its refusal to apologize to Turkey for killing nine of its citizens aboard a Gaza-bound ship, an official said on Wednesday, dampening any prospects for reconciliation between the former allies.
The decision, which the official said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu conveyed to US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a telephone call, was made days before the publication of the findings of a UN inquiry into the seizure of the Mavi Marmara last year.
Andrea Mitchell, notes that Benjamin Netanyahu took President Bambi to school, and of course, she thinks that means Netanyahu was mean and rude
(Mediaite) — President Obama’s recent speech on the Middle East was highlighted by his call for Israel to return to its pre-1967 borders before the Six-Day War in which Israel occupied land in Jordan, Syria, and Egypt. Obama believes that any meaningful negotiation for peace requires an acknowledgment of those old borders, while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes those borders are indefensible and many Republicans don’t think Israel should have to give up any more than it already has.
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell weighed in on the debate and suggested that of all people it was Netanyahu not showing Obama respect.
Mitchell explain Netanyahu’s reaction to Obama’s policy proposal:
“It was taken as a red flag by Netanyahu and what happened then was that even if this was implicit in things that previous Presidents had said, Netanyahu seized on it even before he got on the plane – he criticized the President. And in such a fashion, he lectured him in the Oval Office. . . . It was a stone-faced Barack Obama and Netanyahu basically treating him like a school-boy.”
Mitchell went on to suggest that even Netanyahu’s associates thought his tone towards Obama was “really rude.”
Just asking, but might it also be “really rude” if a foreign country demanded that we give our land to our sworn enemies so that our new neighbors can then use such land to make their desired goal of our total annihilation possible and much easier?
Simply unbelievable. Our president arrogantly makes demands of another sovereign nation, demands that will endanger that nation and Andrea Mitchell whines when the leader of that country sets Obama straight? How assbackwards can you get Andrea? I have not awarded anyone my Marxist Moron Award lately, but Ms. Mitchell just earned herself one. I wonder how Mitchell would react if I went to her house, and demanded she leave all her doors unlocked, and told her she better make concessions to a crazed stalker that had repeatedly attacked her?
By the way Andrea, THIS is who Obama wants Israel to make major concessions to.
(Guardian) — Barack Obama will seek a joint Middle East agreement with David Cameron, insisting that a Palestinian state should be based on pre-1967 borders — a proposal rejected by Israel’s prime minister as “unrealistic” and “indefensible”.
The issue will be raised in private talks between the two men during the state visit by Obama and his wife to London, only the third by a US president in 100 years. Afghanistan, Libya, relations with Pakistan and the global economy — as well as the vacancy for the top job at the IMF — will also make up the agenda.
Despite the outright rejection by the Israeli premier, Binyamin Netanyahu, of a Palestinian state based on the borders that existed before the Six Day War, when Israel captured and occupied the West Bank and Gaza, Obama has already secured the political backing of the United Nations, European Union and Russia who, with America, are collectively known as the “quartet”.
Signalling his determination to keep up pressure on Israel, Obama will be looking to enlist the public support of the UK prime minister. The aim is, in large part, to persuade the Palestinian leadership not to go to the UN in September seeking symbolic backing for an independent state.
The coming meeting between the two men follows evidence of a hardening of criticism of Israel by London. On the eve of the Obamas’ arrival, Middle East minister Alistair Burt accused Israel of “unhelpful and destabilising activity” in announcing the building of 1,500 new settlement units in East Jerusalem ahead of a speech by the president on the Middle East on Friday.
He is actively seeking to pressure Israel into withdraw to borders that are indefensible. Borders that will offer much greater opportunities for Israel’s enemies to launch greater attacks upon it. He demands greater concessions from Israel, a nation that seeks only peace, and to be let alone. And who does he demand these concessions be made to? Terrorists that have been trying to destroy Israel for decades upon decades now. TERRORISTS! Terrorists that butcher innocent Israeli civilians at every opportunity!
I am sorry folks, but I can see nothing in all of this but a desire by our president to destroy Israel. Nothing but the betrayal of an old friend. Nothing but a president that apparently seeks to throw Israel to the wolves. And no, it is not only Conservatives who are outraged at the president’s course of action
Some prominent Jewish Americans are rethinking their support for President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election bid after he effectively called on Israel to give back territory it has occupied since 1967 to Palestinians.
The backlash after Obama’s keynote speech on the Middle East has Democratic Party operatives scrambling to mollify the Jewish community as the president prepares to seek a second term in the White House.
“He has in effect sought to reduce Israel’s negotiation power and I condemn him for that,” former New York Mayor Ed Koch told Reuters. .
“I believed that then-Senator Obama would be as good as John McCain based on his statements at the time and based on his support of Israel. It turns out I was wrong,” he said.
Exit polls from the 2008 election showed 78 percent of Jewish voters chose Obama over his Republican rival Senator McCain.
“I have spoken to a lot of people in the last couple of days — former supporters — who are very upset and feel alienated,” billionaire real estate developer and publisher Mortimer Zuckerman said.
“He’ll get less political support, fewer activists for his campaign, and I am sure that will extend to financial support as well.”
Zuckerman backed Obama during his 2008 presidential run and the newspaper he owns, the New York Daily News, endorsed the president.
Rep. Steve Rothman (D-N.J.) delivered a similar message, arguing that reverting the borders would only embolden Hamas to launch more attacks.
“A two-state solution agreed upon by the Israelis and Palestinians should be negotiated through direct talks,” Rothman said Friday in a statement, “but it is important to remember that a full return to the 1967 borders will be indefensible for Israel and that talking with terrorists who want to destroy Israel is a non-starter.”
Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) echoed that sentiment, saying the 1967 borders “were simply not defensible, and Israel must not be made to return to them.”
“The President is correct that land swaps built into a peace agreement could make Israel’s borders safe and secure, but make no mistake about it – such territorial adjustments would be very significant so that Israel would no longer be 9 miles wide at its narrowest point.”
And the “International Community” is not all in agreement either
(Globe and Mail) — The Harper government is refusing to join the United States in calling for a return to 1967 borders as a starting point for Mideast peace, a position that has drawn sharp criticism from Canada’s staunch ally Israel.
At a briefing ahead of the upcoming G8 summit in France, federal officials said the basis for the negotiations must be mutually agreed upon.
Israel quickly rejected U.S. President Barack Obama’s proposal for the talks to be guided by the 1967 borders, with mutually agreed land swaps.
“What the government of Canada supports is basically a two-state solution that is negotiated,” a senior federal official said. “If it’s border, if it’s others issues, it has to be negotiated, it cannot be unilateral action.”
Pressed by reporters, federal officials said both the Israelis and the Palestinians have to decide on their bottom lines, which the Israelis have said will not include a return to the 1967 border.
So, what else is there left for us to assume. AGAIN, just like with our economy, we are confronted with this question. Is Obama really this stupid, or does he realize what he is doing? Alan Dershowitz has a definite opinion
No fucking clue indeed Mr. President!
Media Matters, or as I call them, Media Marxists need to confront their inner bigotry Via Big Journalism
Media Matters Senior Foreign Policy Fellow MJ Rosenberg unleashed a stream of anti-Israel vitriol today, calling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “terrorist” and accusing pro-Israel activists of being un-American.
As Netanyahu gave a stern but statesmanlike response to President Barack Obama’s speech yesterday, Rosenberg could not restrain his hatred. It was the latest, and the worst, anti-Israel attack by Media Matters’s foreign affairs head.
Surprise surprise, another incident exposing the far left nuttiness of Media Marxists. The Left is infatuated with a perverse desire to see Israel destroyed by its enemies. These bastards cheer for terrorists, although they will never openly admit that Hamas, Hezbollah, and the rest of Israel’s enemies are terrorists. They condemn Israel for merely defending itself.
The more I know about the Left, the more clear it becomes. They are truly evil, whether it be because of their absolute blindness to reality, their abject refusal to admit that some cultures ARE better than others, or their affection for the religion of Marx, I cannot say. But, rest assured they are evil.
The Left loathes Israel, perhaps more than they hate America. Here, via Gateway Pundit, is yet the latest example. I guess the Left would just let Israel burn, how tolerant!
A leading leftist website is urging liberals not to donate to Israeal’s fire relief fund… Because Israel is a “rich” country.
The Atlantic today is urging liberals to turn their back on Israel:
Inevitably, the Jewish National Fund, which, among other things, plants forests in Israel, is asking for donations from Americans for its “Forest Fire Emergency Campaign,” in response to the massive fire spreading across the Carmel mountains. But I’m not giving.
Israel’s per capita GDP is nearly $30,000. Israel is a rich country. The fact that it doesn’t possess adequate firefighting equipment is its own fault. The fact that the leadership of its fire service is incompetent is its own fault (you can read more about that here). At some point, the good-hearted Diaspora Jews who still think of Israel as a charity case are going to have to tell their cousins to learn to fully-fund basic services like firefighting if they want to be thought of as citizens of an advanced country.
Well, there we go kids, more love from the Left.
I do believe he is! And doing a damned fine job of it too!
Many of my readers know that I, Robert ‘Bob’ Belvedere, have a magical way with words, but did you know I also have the ability to read minds? I’m what you call a psycho psychic and I can read the thoughts of other people. It is a special gift that comes with a lot of responsibility [don't worry ladies, I'll never tell]. I rarely use it because I’m one of the those guys that likes to take life as it comes — a free, easy-going spirit with a sunny disposition. But I felt compelled to use it yesterday when Benjamin Netanyahu met with Barack Hussein Obama…
