Your Marxist Moron of the Day New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof

Kristof, who pretends to be smart, recently wrote that Republicans have no health care plan to replace ObamaCare. This is a common thing for the left to say, even though it is not true. The really humiliating thing for Kristof is this. His own paper has written numerous times about several GOP plans. Mary Katherine Ham explains

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof did some cute work covering the Affordable Care Act this week, leaving a blank space in his column after the opening paragraph: “This week, President-elect Donald Trump and congressional Republicans began to dismantle Obamacare, and here are the details of their replacement plan.”

It wasn’t a production error, but it was a fact-checking error that Kristof could have corrected by simply reading the newspaper that employs him. Here are four times The New York Times reported on the GOP health-care alternatives Kristof thinks doesn’t exist.

This will not deter Kristof of course. He is of the Left, and the truth is meaningless to the Left. They lie, about everything, and never have as second thought about doing it. And, perhaps the most offensive thing about fools like Kristof is that they are so deluded that they never consider why they must lie to further their agenda. If Liberal ideas worked, their would be no need to lie would there? And, if the Left gave the first damn about honesty………………

Honey, where did we put the eye bleach?

This post is destined for the Good Freaking Grief Hall of Fame

Dean Hutton is a South African artist whose most notorious project involves walking around in a custom-printed black and white suit and absorbing the responses from strangers.

And what does he, she, whatever the Hell it is wear to absorb responses? WARNING, eye bleach might be required

dean-hutton

Hey, I warned you it was not going to be pretty didn’t I? Anyway, Dean Hutton is clearly Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs

Hutton first wore the Fuck White People suit at Gay Pride:

It was a test for me. If I can do it in a community in which I have almost de facto access to, can I do it in other spaces, where I don’t necessarily have de facto access except for the colour of my skin? You know, like, if I can’t do it at Gay Pride, then I can’t be making a whole fucking suit that says that. And, it’s still mostly an experiment, but it feels like it’s something I can do, and the reactions I am getting from it says that it is something that I should be doing.

Yes, Dean is deeply deluded, a classic example of what I am diagnosing as Identity Obsession Disorder. Dean is so wrapped up in his “identity” that he has lost his grip on reality. It is sad to see, it really is, and it is a growing trend with leftists. This is what happens when people are told that everything they are, and everything they experience is completely dependent on their “identity”. That identity can be gender, or race, or their sexual preferences. The idea is to so focus the individual on their identity that they lose all sense of individualism, sacrificing who they are in favor of becoming a member of a group. And, those that reject groupthink are savaged by the Left as “not genuine”. Women cannot really be women unless they completely embrace Leftism. Blacks who dare to be Conservatives are ostracized as sell outs or Uncle Toms. Again, you are must be a member of your “group”and reject individualism or you must face the consequences. Thinking for oneself, is simply not allowed.

The Left hates Individualism, it is the polar opposite of the Collectivism that defines the Left. When people think as individuals, rather than a member of an “identity” they tend to move away from Leftism. This cannot be tolerated if Leftism is to succeed in its aim for a utopian society where all rights are non-existent without the direct approval of the State. That same State, of course  may restrict, or forbid the exercise of any “right” or liberty based on the pursuit of the common good. A common good, of course, defined by the State. 

Over the years, I have come to see that everything the Left does is designed to erode, and eventually eradicate Individualism. Groupthink and identity Obsession Syndrome plays into that. There is the indoctrination that takes place in our schools, and through much of the media. There is the incredible peer pressure that urges conformity, and threatens dissent. Why do so many stay silent? Fear of some sort of reprisal from the Collectivists. Do you want your college professor to give you a better grade? Then shut up! Do you want to make it in Hollywood? Then shut up! Do you want to get that promotion, or keep your job in the media? Then shut up! Or, better yet, say what the Collectivists want to hear. After all, you don’t want to betray your race/gender/sexual orientation/religion do you?

Poor bastards like Dean Hutton are not the problem, they are symptoms, and in many cases the victims of the evil intentions of the Collectivists

You do not have to be an arrogant ass to be Chris Cuomo, but it sure helps

Watching this video, I wonder if Cuomo knows he is a journalist, and not an activist

Oh Chris, Chris, Chris, you buffoon. No, 99% of scientists do NOT agree that man is causing climate change. Perhaps Cuomo could shut his condescending mouth and do some research?

Cuomo should really get off his emotionalistic high horse and do some actual research

Communist murderer Fidel Castro dead, MSNBS in mourning

Castro is dead, too bad an evil monster like him was ever born. Thousands of Cubans are celebrating, as they should, and people who grasp how evil Marxism is, join their celebration. The leftist media of course, and by the leftist media I mean MSNBS, is doing  their best to sugarcoat Castro’s evil.

Fidel Castro, the cigar-chomping Cuban revolutionary leader and dictator who defied U.S. efforts to topple him for five decades, has died

Ah, yes, he “defied” the United States, yes, he was brutal to his people, but that is OK, because he defied America

The bearded communist took power in a 1959 revolution and ruled Cuba for 49 years with a mix of charisma and iron will, creating a one-party state and becoming a central figure in the Cold War.

So, he was a man with charisma, and an iron will. Yes, lots of innocent people were imprisoned, and died under his evil government, but let us focus on his “charisma”

To millions of his supporters, he was an icon of social justice who aimed to turn Cuba into a model of universal education and free health care for every citizen. But he was reviled by countless others, who saw him as an unrepentant tyrant, concerned principally with his iron grip on power.

Ah yes, social justice! Free health care, and universal education! No matter how awful that health care actually is, no matter that free education is worthless when people are not free to say or read what they wish. No matter that Cubans, today average an income of $20 a MONTH! What matters to social justice warriors is equality folks. And an equality of destitution, slavery to the state, and poverty is fine with them.

Of course, MSNBS did manage, barely, to point out Castro was not totally perfect

Castro tolerated little dissent, jailed opponents, seized private businesses and monopolized the media.

Talk about soft selling Castro’s barbarity! Good Freaking Grief. Babalu Blog offers up a more realistic view of Castro. I guess MSNBS was too busty weeping to tell Castro’s real story. A story that continues today. A story not of hope, but of democide A story the Left insists on not telling. Like they do not tell the real story of Che Guevara, a close buddy of Castro, The story of Castro must be told. He was evil, as all Marxists are. Castro is a perfect example of what Marxist fanatics, left to their own devices, are capable of. No amount of whitewashing can change that. This report from CNN from a few years ago offers some final perspective

Older Cubans still recount with great pain their memories of Castro’s infamous “paredons,” or firing squads, to which he summarily subjected thousands of his enemies at the beginning of his revolution. As Amnesty International’s reports document, the terror, torture and repression that Cubans continue to experience under Castro’s brutal regime seem boundless. Activists against the regime are held for days in detention centers subject to “interrogations, intimidation, and threats. Beatings during detention have also been reported.”

Dr. Bernie Fernandez, a renowned Cuban-American doctor in Miami and CEO of the Cleveland Clinic Florida, recalled that when he was 5 and living in Cuba, his father Bernardo, a doctor, became disillusioned with the Castro regime and sought permission to emigrate. This sole act was considered treason, and he was summarily sent to a forced labor camp indefinitely.
The Cuban police took an inventory of the family’s possessions — thereby taking ownership of them on paper — and Bernie and his mom and sister were forced to survive on their own. Seven years later Bernardo was released. In 1973, when Bernie was 12, Castro’s police conducted another inventory to seize their possessions before letting them leave Cuba.
Bernie Fernandez chokes up remembering how he boarded the plane in a shirt and pants cut out from a sack of potatoes. The family arrived in Spain, penniless. Fernandez eventually made it to Miami, where he struggled to learn English and make something of himself. “Our experience,” he says now, “was mild compared to millions of other Cuban-Americans.”
I guess MSNBS missed all of that while they were eulogizing Castro

 

 

 

Here we go again? Yet another false narrative begins

Via Bob Owens

It really should have been obvious from the very beginning yesterday afternoon, if we had been paying attention, and journalists were doing their jobs as skeptics looking for facts, instead of a click-bait-driving narrative.

After Keith Scott was shot and killed by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) team attempting to serve a warrant on another person yesterday, his family concocted a tale of a man who was unjustly executed by police for no reason at all.

They said he only had a book.

No it was not a book, according to multiple police officers, and multiple witnesses, it was a gun, and apparently Mr. Scott was not “open carrying” as is lawful in North Carolina. He was, as Owens explains “brandishing” the weapon, that is not legal

He was shot and killed by an African-American CMPD officer.

There was no book nearby.

And there was a gun, which other witnesses in the apartment complex admit seeing in Scott’s hands as officers warned him repeatedly to put it down.

Keith Lamont Scott was not approached by a solitary officer in plainclothes, or even a group of plainclothes officers.

Scott was approached by three uniformed CMPD officers, and a fourth officer wearing street clothes and a CMPD-issued vest emblazoned with the word “POLICE” in bold letters.

And, again, according to multiple witnesses these officers told Scott multiple times to drop his weapon

Charlotte police warned 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott again and again to drop his handgun before an officer shot and killed him, the police chief announced Wednesday morning, after riots damaged patrol cars and injured at least 16 officers, one of whom was hit in the face with a rock.

Police Chief Kerr Putney said during a news conference that officers were searching for a suspect Tuesday when they saw Scott exit a vehicle with a handgun at an apartment complex on the city’s northeast side. “The officers gave loud, clear verbal commands which were also heard by many of the witnesses. They were instructing the subject, once he got out of the vehicle, to drop the weapon… Mr. Scott exited his vehicle armed with a handgun as the officers continued to yell at him to drop it.”

Putney said Officer Brentley Vinson shot Scott because the man posed a threat. Vinson is black, as was Scott.

“It’s time to change the narrative, because I can tell you from the facts that the story’s a little bit different as to how it’s been portrayed so far, especially through social media,” Putney said.

Once again, a false narrative is born, a narrative the media will carry and trumpet. And there have already been riots, and maybe there will be more. Innocents have been hurt, and maybe more will be, all over damned lies spewed by Scott’s family. That is reprehensible. It is one thing to mourn your loved one, but to deliberately lie and accuse police of cold-blooded murder? No, sorry, that crosses the line, as does the actions of the rioters, who have no excuse for their behavior. These are not people seeking justice at all, these are people looking for opportunities to behave in an indecent fashion. And damn the media for the role they keep playing in these incidents! Their job is to REPORT, not misrepresent the facts. 

Let’s meet some victims of gun violence shall we?

Ah the left in general and the Cult of Gun Control loves to throw around words like “gun violence”. They do so to scare people, to convince them that gun violence is a national epidemic. And, if you are an American who does not know much about firearms then you might buy into this propaganda. But, the fact is that the national rates of homicide, accidental shootings, and violent crime have been falling for two decades plus now. At the same time the number of Americans legally carrying pistols has been increasing, the number now is somewhere north of 13,000. At the same time gun sales have been booming. More and more of us are arming ourselves. And yet, despite the dire predictions of the gun grabbers more guns have come with falling violent crime and murder rates.

These facts, of course, do not deter the left, as the left does not value truth. The Cult of Gun Control ignores inconvenient facts and simply pushes their campaign of lies harder. Allow me one example here. The gun control crowd talks about “victims”of gun violence, giving anyone who listens the impression that these “victims” are all innocent people. In fact, the victims of “gun violence” the left lists anyone shot, period. Criminals shot by police, or by armed citizens acting in self-defense are included, as are gang bangers who shoot each other. Even terrorists like the Boston bombers or the Orlando Jihadists are included as “victims”. Even vermin like this is a “victim”

Around 2:00 Thursday morning  East Ridge police department responded to 4011 Ringgold Rd., at the Marathon Service Station.

Police were initially called for a report of a person shot. While officers were in route to the scene, they were notified of a robbery at the same location.

Police found a person lying in the parking lot suffering from at least one gunshot wound in the torso. The victim was transported to the hospital.

The preliminary investigation shows the victim who was shot had entered the store and committed an aggravated robbery, armed with a large bladed weapon. The person then demanded money from the register, taking it and a large quantity of cigarettes.

The suspected robber grabbed the female store clerk, threatening to kill her and forcing her to accompany him as he left.  As they exited the store a customer saw the two and determined the store was being robbed.

The customer went to get a handgun from his car, confronted the robber and fired several shots, hitting him at least once in the torso.

This “victim” died, but his intended victim lives. Is that not something to celebrate? Yet, the Cult of Gun Control members try to make a victim out of a dangerous, violent thug while discounting that firearms are used hundreds of thousands of times every year to stop crime and save REAL victims. The media, typically, partners with the cultists in this narrative propaganda. Bob Owens ain’t having that

When the good guy with a gun confronted the robber, the thwarted and enraged robber let go of his hostage and charged the law-abiding citizen. The citizen promptly shot the criminal to the ground, ending the threat.

The criminal died at the hospital.

Supporters of gun control will chalk this incident up as “another American killed with a gun.”

They won’t care to mention that the “killer” was a good guy with a gun” who put his own life at risk to save an innocent store clerk from a violent criminal.

That doesn’t fit the narrative.

The fact is guns are tools, nothing more. They are not evil, or good. They can be used to serve evil purposes, or good purposes. And, truth be told, they are used far more often for good, than for evil. There are less victims because of guns in the hands of law-abiding Americans That the left lies, knowingly lies, and tries to demonize guns should tell you all you need to know about the left! The sad fact is this, to the left law-abiding citizens owning or carrying firearms is a bigger threat than violent criminals.

Moral retardation anyone?
