Innocent until Guilty, but when?

I just love reading what passes for news stories as I go through Yahoo! and its various clickbait articles. The first one is by Ja’han Jones of the Puffington Host entitled: “After Brett Kavanaugh’s Confirmation, One Word Ignited A Massive Debate About Feminism.” The article is about a poem called “Scream” (what an apt description of how progressives deal with politics) which someone edited after the left smeared Justice Kavanaugh with accusations that have no corroborating evidence or basis. Here’s the wonderful poem:

54811d3923adf86d1e690c0d786023e9

From the PuffHost article:

Kaur’s followers alerted her to the alteration, which ignited a debate about how those with privilege adapt the language of resistance to their preferred narrative.

Kaur told HuffPost this week that the very invisibility her poem was intended to combat ended up being reinforced when her work was repurposed and popularized.”

I’m not really certain what is meant by “invisibility” but does it really matter what a straight, white male like myself thinks to the denizens of the Puffington Host? Let’s get some more context from the author of the poem, Jasmin Kaur:

  • When you write specifically to counter your feelings of invisibility and smallness within a white supremacist society,
  • it’s disconcerting to see white people change your words to suit their own immediate needs.”
  • I understand the sentiment of people needing to vote within the current political climate,
  • I also recognize all the ways that voting has been (and still is) inaccessible to many communities of colour.

I wonder how voting is inaccessible to “communities of color“? The article never specifies and no evidence is presented. Perhaps the author or Ms. Kaur think that non-citizens should be able to vote? Anyway, back to the article:

In giving Sikh women permission to scream, Kaur was acknowledging the righteousness of their anger without demanding they find a solution for it. She was affirming their entitlement to anger for their own purpose — intimate, painful, perhaps cathartic anger, rather than anger used solely in service of others.

The appropriation of Kaur’s words, then, invigorated conversation about allyship, political responsibility and who ought to be tasked with reversing America’s racist and sexist history.

Who took away Ms. Kaur’s permission to talk? Who said that Mr. Kaur couldn’t be angry? What in the hell is “allyship“? I suppose that I’m just too logical damn racist to understand and properly answer any of my foolish questions. Let’s read some more hilarity from this article:

There was a palatable air of hopelessness among the discourse surrounding Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation. Those who thought numerous corroborated claims of sexual assault levied against Kavanaugh would stifle his elevation to the court were stunned — albeit probably not shocked — when conservative senators cast the allegations aside and confirmed him anyway.

Wait, what claims were corroborated? What corroborating evidence was presented? The same sentence even just refers to the allegations as “allegations” meaning that Justice Kavanaugh was in no manner proven guilty right? No evidence is given in the article nor are any citations given; I can’t help but wonder why? Could it be that there really is no corroborating evidence? If you want to see some more amazing mental gymnastics on the part of Ms. Kaur and her supporters take a look at her Instagram post concerning the poem edit. It really is something special.

Our next story from Yahoo! is entitled: “‘Cornerstore Caroline’: Woman calls the police on 9-year-old boy for sexual assault.” Let’s take a look shall we?

On Wednesday, Facebook user Jason Stovetop Littlejohn shared a video of the ensuing argument, reportedly outside the Sahara Deli in Flatbush, N.Y. ‘Meet Cornerstore Caroline. White Woman calls police on a kid, saying he sexually assaulted her,’he wrote. ‘As I walked up I noticed the argument, apparently, the kid brushed up against her and she said he touched her and decided to call police on a nine-year-old child. As you can see the kid is crying and the mom is upset.

It just gets better and better:

The New York City Police Department tells Yahoo Lifestyle that no related complaint reports are filed, although according to Pix11, officers did respond after the crowd had dispersed. Yahoo Lifestyle could not reach a representative of Sahara Deli for comment; however, the owner told Pix11: ‘The woman has a history of being unwell.’ Heavy also reported that Klein, of Missouri, studied sociology at the University of Missouri and is a former actress and performer.

Oh, a sociology major huh? That explains something I suppose. I thought that progressives wanted everyone to “believe women” and “believe survivors“? Not if it doesn’t fit the narrative I suppose and only when it’s politically expedient. I wonder how a typical leftist would really like it if they could be falsely convicted of a crime with zero evidence? Derp, “Kavanaugh was in a job interview, not a criminal trial.” I wonder how many regressives would like such an argument used against themselves?

Bonus round:

I wonder if Ms. Kaur is aware of the Sikh Empire? Is she aware of the illustrious history of warfare that the Sikh people have? Or does she just sort of ignore it?

Here’s a Puffington Host video decrying “white feminists“:

Even the proprietors of CNN don’t think that Senator Heitkamp (D-ND) has a good chance of maintaining her Senate seat. Yay!

Discussions with Bernie Sanders supporters…

Today’s post is dedicated to my complex, intelligent, factually-based, and well-thought out debates with the Sandroid Bernout Army. I’m just kidding folks, there wasn’t a whole lot of critical thinking going on in the mind of the Sandroids. Only one of the people I asked questions of was somewhat reasonable. You’ve heard me talk of the folks over at Economic Illiterates for Bernie Sanders 2016 before and this is where most of the discussions took place at.

To start this off here’s a CNN that some Sandroids decided to spam the aforementioned page with.

CNN-Under Sanders, income and jobs would soar, economist says

In the CNN article a single economist by the name of Gerald Freidman claims that under Bernie’s plan the U.S. economy would:

Friedman, who believes in democratic socialism like the candidate, found that if Sanders became president — and was able to push his plan through Congress — median household income would be $82,200 by 2026, far higher than the $59,300 projected by the Congressional Budget Office.

In addition, poverty would plummet to a record low 6%, as opposed to the CBO’s forecast of 13.9%. The U.S. economy would grow by 5.3% per year, instead of 2.1%, and the nation’s $1.3 trillion deficit would turn into a large surplus by Sanders’ second term.

I’m fairly certain that most of the Bernie supporters didn’t get past this part (or the title for that matter) since right after that portion of the article was the following:

Other economists, however, feel that Friedman’s analysis is overly optimistic, saying it would be difficult to achieve that level of economic prosperity. Last week, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget said Sanders’ plan to pay for health care would fall short by at least $3 trillion.”

I wonder where the $14.5 trillion is going to come from?

Sanders’ plan to pour $14.5 trillion into the economy — including spending on infrastructure and youth employment, increasing Social Security benefits, making college free and expanding health care and family leave — would juice GDP and productivity. (Friedman reduces the cost of Medicare-for-all to $10.7 trillion because he estimates the government would save $3.1 trillion by eliminating tax breaks for health insurance premiums.)

That’s right, tax increases on the wretched and vile “1%”, a 2.2% income tax on anyone making over $28,000 a year, a 6.2% payroll tax levied on the employer side, a tax on numerous financial transactions (purchase/sale of bonds, stocks, among many other things), and big increases on capital gains among numerous other fees. Brilliant, whatever could go wrong with this great plan?   (Hat-tip to We Are Capitalists)

12631405_493412637496950_2728163176610652916_n

Continuing on though:

‘Like the New Deal of the 1930s, Senator Sanders’ program is designed to do more than merely increase economic activity,’ Friedman writes. It will ‘promote a more just prosperity, broadly-based with a narrowing of economy inequality.’

FDR’s Treasury Secretary, Henry Morgenthau Jr. admitted that New Deal policies were a complete and utter failure that didn’t restore employment, restore prosperity, or even end the Great Depression.

Many presidential hopefuls say their economic programs would boost growth. Donald Trump and Jeb Bush justify their big tax cuts by saying GDP would grow at a 4% rate. But their plans have been panned by experts as overly optimistic.

We won’t get 4% growth per year in the economy, but Bernie and his Bernouts will find a way to make the U.S. economy consistently grow at 5.3% every year.

Friedman, however, argues that Sanders’ plan would be more stimulative because it is pouring money into the economy, as opposed to cutting taxes. Several of Sanders’ proposals — such as spending $1 trillion on infrastructure — will happen in the first few years of his administration.

The thinking goes: This enhanced government spending would increase demand on businesses, who would then hire more workers to meet their needs. The increase in employment will prompt people to buy more, leading other businesses to hire.

‘If there is more spending, people will have more to do,’ Friedman said, noting that the share of the population with jobs could be restored to its 1999 level of more than 64%, up from its current 59.6% rate.

So if we take more money from citizens just to give it back to them later the economy will grow? Brilliant…

10610743_10207814491744006_389463997724232360_n       11261496_744850538953680_400639547207836214_n

At the end of the article we see the following:

Still, some experts question whether the effects would be that large.

Stimulating demand can boost a weak economy during a recession, but ‘it’s harder to accept as a long-run growth strategy,’ said William Gale, the former director of Brookings’ Economic Studies Program.

Also, it would be very difficult to achieve and maintain an economic growth rate of 5.3% per year after inflation. That target hasn’t been hit consistently since the 1960s, when technology was providing big advancements, the workforce was younger and there was increased demand for American products worldwide as other countries fully recovered from World War II.

‘The 5.3% number is a fantasy,’ said Jim Kessler, senior vice president at Third Way, a centrist think tank.

I feel like I’ve said something similar to this before about economic conditions in the 1950s and progressive ideas about the tax code.

Joe

Now that I’ve established what the Bernie trolls are citing as evidence of their ideas being correct, let’s look at how they respond to my arguments.

Here was the standard response I gave (i.e. copied and pasted) since the Sandroids kept citing the same article without reading it.

Sandroid Response

Some people never really responded…

Like I said at the beginning, there was one individual who was reasonable and not full of hate.

Then there were the people who would disagree with what I had to say but offered no evidence of their own whilst calling me a liar. The logic that the Sandroids are using is simply amazing…

Concerning a discussion not related to the CNN article Mr. Joe Giansante provided some good entertainment. This postal worker appears to be going postal on me.

Mr. Tanous had some interesting logic as well; the “1%” are keeping Africa to perform sweatshop labor yet also stopping all economic development. I’m not certain how that works, especially when countries like South Africa are ruled by the socialists in the African National Congress and communist dictators rule Zimbabwe. What’s up with progressives and thinking that their opponents base everything off of Fox News?

Then there was a woman by the name of Sally Sallernio who makes some wondrous claims yet is also unable to back them up.

That’s all for now about my conversations with the Sandroid Bernout Army. As always, don’t be scared to share this information with your fiends, I mean friends.

 

 

 

Muh Roads!

muh_roads

Don’t you just love it when Proud Party Progs ask about who would build the roads without socialism? Let’s look at what one Ms. Ellen McPhretes had to say on the issue:

ellenisdumb

I’ll have more to add later about the glorious comments of Ellen, but for now lets talk about roads maintained by the government. In case you haven’t heard, the El Niño Southern Oscillation is bringing some heavy rainstorms to North America. San Diego (along with the rest of Southern California) doesn’t seem to deal very well with rain. I happen to live in the Midway District and was greeted with a couple feet of water on Midway Drive due to a storm that dropped a half inch of rain.

I just can’t be impressed enough with the job that the City of San Diego is doing with the roads; it’s another shining example of government efficiency. Compared to many other roads in San Diego though, Midway wasn’t that bad and at least passable in a truck with decent ground clearance. Miramar Road and Kearny Mesa Boulevard were covered in four feet at some spots.

One of the big reasons that San Diego floods so easy are poorly maintained storm drains. According to the City News Service:

The City Council’s Environment Committee Wednesday unanimously called for the city of San Diego to declare a state of emergency to help get storm channels cleared before the brunt of El Niño storms arrive.

The committee members pointed to Tuesday night’s lightning-punctuated rainfall as an example of what this winter’s climate conditions might bring. According to the National Weather Service, 1.09 inches of rain fell at Lindbergh Field, a record for the date and already surpassing the November average.

Because of environmental concerns, it’s a laborious process for San Diego to acquire the permits needed to remove vegetation and debris from the city’s 133 miles of storm channels. At a news conference before the committee meeting, Councilman David Alvarez said the State Regional Water Board can take two years to process permit applications for scheduled storm channel maintenance.

Two years to receive permission to clear some garbage, plants, and animals from storm drains. The Democratic People’s Republic of Kalifornia (DPRK) has some amazing laws doesn’t it?

In emergency situations, such as when a major storm is imminent, the city can go to the Army Corps of Engineers to get the necessary permits, the councilman said. However, that has to happen a few days before a storm hits.

He said an emergency declaration could help the city obtain a blanket permit to clear out the most clogged channels well in advance of dangerous storms.

This just keeps getting better and better. Can’t risk killing a random animal right?

David Gibson of the water board said the governor is considering such a declaration, but it’s unknown when it would be issued. He said the agency has expedited city requests in the past and invited San Diego officials to submit permit applications.

The proposed emergency declaration was met with some reluctance from the mayor’s office because of previous litigation.

‘Five years ago, the city declared a state of emergency to clear the Tijuana River Valley and was sued, resulting in years of litigation that postponed maintenance work,’ mayoral spokesman Matt Awbrey said.

‘Doing so again could open up taxpayers to more lawsuits, fines and actually end up delaying work further,’ Awbrey said. ‘We are unable to move faster than state and federal regulations will allow, so the mayor is asking regulators for relief so we can take all necessary actions to prepare San Diego in the event of an El Niño storm event.’

Alvarez and committee member Marti Emerald said the city might get sued, and lose, but in the meantime would be protecting property.

There’s no winning for San Diego; if you clean the storm drains you get sued by the DPRK and lose. If you don’t clean the drains, there’s millions in property damage. Maybe by the time the next El Niño hits the clogged stormed drains will be clear?  The drains that are currently clear will probably be clogged though. With the way that the DPRK is currently going I’m pretty certain the only way to win is to leave the state.

The storm drains and roads may function properly during rain storms at the same time that the water infrastructure is upgraded and repaired.

Meet Sister Julia, Diamond of Islam

Salam alaikum, you kafir infidel you. Did you know that women in Islam are like diamonds? Did you know that Mohammad was a feminist? Did you know that Islam is the perfect system from Allah for women? Did you also know that Islam gives women protection after any bad thing happens, like divorce?! Let’s hear Sister Julia (Russian) explain in more detail:

Isn’t amazing that Mohammad helped his wives and children out? It’s even better when that wife happens to be a six year old! Na’iama also brings up many good points such as: go back to the Koran, you are required to say “peace be upon him” after you say the Prophet Mohammad’s name, and that Mohammad’s personage, peace be upon him, will make you see the beauty of Islam, and the Prophet would mend his own shoes. Indeed, the Prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him, was the ultimate feminist.

Prog_Off

All right, I couldn’t keep that up much longer. Progressives can claim that the “refugees” currently entering Europe are all peace-loving and kind people all they want though this does not make it true. It’s amazing how many media establishments are covering up who the criminals in a rash of gang rapes and attacks on New Years were, including ZDF, a German public broadcasting company. From the London Daily Mail the program editor had the following to say:

We don’t want to inflame the situation and spread a bad mood. The migrants don’t deserve it

The Cologne police chief Wolfgang Anders has had to resign over covering up the sex attacks by the Muslim migrants. Perhaps the mayor should follow suit along with Frau Merkel. According to a leaked police report:

When we arrived [at the square] our vehicles were pelted with firecrackers. On the cathedral steps were a thousand people, mainly of immigrant background, who were indiscriminately throwing fireworks and bottles into the crowd.

Women literally had to run the gauntlet through the mass of drunk men in a way you can’t describe ….many came to officers shocked and crying to report sex assaults. We were unable to respond to all the offences. There were just too many.

One of the other news stories from the Daily Mail covers how Frau Merkel (Time Magazine’s Chancellor of the Free World) has admitted that she has “lost control” of the migrant situation:

Now all of a sudden we are facing the challenge that refugees are coming to Europe and we are vulnerable, as we see, because we do not yet have the order, the control, that we would like to have.

Then there’s this brilliant comment:

Nobody should act as though you can have a common currency without being able to cross borders reasonably easily.

The Brussels Sprouts just can’t let their Euro experiment die can they? Achieving a monetary union before a proper political union is great policy right? Hopefully it’ll continue to tear the nations of the European Union from the grasp of Communists like Jose Manuel Barroso. Maybe the Alternative for Germany (which continues to gain votes) will do what the Front National has done in France to the Socialist Party.

20160109-635879567206449956w

I wonder why the socialists at Salon, The New Republic, or Slate aren’t condemning the vile actions of these migrant men? I guess when the offender is a Party politician or oppressed minority it doesn’t matter. Funny enough, when German citizens held some protests about the attacks by migrants the police were able to bring out the water cannons. I wonder why those weren’t brought out earlier?

300E127600000578-3394896-Protestors_from_the_PEGIDA_movement_Patriotic_Europeans_Against_-a-15_1452560720093 2FF3B8F700000578-3393543-Attacks_Right_wing_supporters_attend_a_to_protest_against_the_Ne-a-7_1452546581489 300DE37500000578-3393543-image-a-16_1452547162345 300DF6C700000578-3393543-image-a-20_1452547195927

Remember, we need to help refugees that throw back free food and water. It’s also important that we give the migrants a bunch of cash and high-speed Internet.

Remember folks, if you oppose Frau Merkel’s plan to make up for Germany’s extremely low birthrates you’re a hard-right, national socialist, xenophobic bigot.

Martin Schulz is confused as to why not everyone sees the world the way that he does.
Martin Schulz is confused as to why not everyone sees the world the way that he does.

One of the most interesting articles that I’ve seen lately on Yahoo! News concerns how European Union leaders are worried about control of Europe slipping from their grasp. From the article “‘EU in danger’ of disappearing, warns Schulz” European Parliament President Martin Schulz believes that the E.U. may not last another decade.

‘The European Union is in danger. No one can say whether the EU will still exist in this form in 10 years,’ Schulz said in an interview with German newspaper Die Welt.

Free trade isn’t enough for elitists such as Schulz; he and his other central planners must dictate how European governments operate.

In the EU there were now ‘forces at work to drive us apart,’ said the German politician.

I thought that E.U. leaders claimed to care about democracy? Not when it gets in the way of their control it seems.

We must avoid this because the consequences would be dramatic.

You don’t say Schulz? Dramatic consequences such as not tying Germany, France, Portugal, and Greece to the same currency?

The alternative to the EU would be a ‘Europe of nationalism, a Europe of borders and walls’ — a formula that had led the continent into ‘catastrophe’ repeatedly in the past, Schulz said.

Schulz wouldn’t want citizens of European countries to think for themselves as it’s simply too dangerous. Never fear though, he will ensure the safety of Europe by: taxing its peoples of the majority of their incomes, controlling their lives, and bringing in millions of refugees while doing nothing to verify that there are no dangerous elements among them. What could possibly go wrong with such a plan?

Germany is on course to take in one million asylum seekers this year, half of them from Syria.

Perhaps this is Merkel’s desperate attempt to make up for a pathetic birthrate of 1.38 as of 2010?

Schulz voiced concern about a lack of solidarity by many EU members in hosting the refugees, and about moves by several eastern European countries to build new barriers.

Schulz just can’t seem to get over the fact that not everyone agrees with him. Why should the proles, I mean citizens, think for themselves?

As a bonus to the “refugee” question Representative Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) who is vying for the Democratic Senate seat of Barbara Boxer just stated that up to 20% of Muslims in the U.S. desire to live in a caliphate. Such thoughtcrime from a prized minority member of the Party is not to be tolerated though; her thoughtcrime is grievous. As all proud Party members know, only racist white people can be (or a portion thereof) identified or generalized as killers.

The world does not belong to those who would slander the Prophet!
The world does not belong to those who would slander the Prophet!

Based upon recent election results in France I believe that French citizens do not care what people like Schulz think. The Front National has received more votes than both the Republicans and Socialist Party.

Look at all that President Obama has accomplished

Good evening comrades, today’s post will go over all the wonderful deeds and accomplishments that President Obama has achieved for the United Socialist States of America. Our current piece of pictorial propaganda comes from the fine folks at Occupy Communists Democrats:

12193389_10156234818655327_1440978989817912249_n

When looking at the Unemployment rate, please don’t take into account that the Labor Force Participation Rate has also dropped. Like all good Party members, the folks at Occupy Communists don’t properly represent the data (or cite their sources). Taking a quick look at some Bureau of Labor Statistics data puts some insight into how the Unemployment Rate has dropped.

participation_trend
Take note of the constant downward trend during all of President Obama’s tenure.

I selelected the years of 2000-2015 from the BLS to generate the graph; you can adjust the years as you see fit. SeriesReport-20151122232319_878ef9

I thought that proud progressive like the ones at Time Magazine claimed that President Obama had nothing to do with gasoline prices and oil imports? But of course, those evil oil companies drilling for oil in the U.S. must be because President Obama demanded it. Didn’t Obama Administration officials want gas prices to go up to $10 per gallon like it is in Europe to force proles citizens to give up their cars? I also thought that President Obama recently rejected the Keystone XL pipeline citing “national interest” as his reasoning? I guess that we’ll keep using trains and oil tankers to import oil that we are using from Canada. Makes total sense and is much safer than using a pipeline…

The teen pregnancy statistic is really interesting and insightful. President Obama is most certainly responsible for ensuring that teenagers have less sex and/or use birth control more often. Don’t look at the Health and Human Services Department’s description of the data though:

In 2013, there were 26.5 births for every 1,000 adolescent females ages 15-19, or 273,105 babies born to females in this age group.[1] Nearly eighty-nine percent of these births occurred outside of marriage.[1] The 2013 teen birth rate indicates a  decline of ten percent from 2012 when the birth rate was 29.4 per 1,000.[1] The teen birth rate has declined almost continuously over the past 20 years. In 1991, the U.S. teen birth rate was 61.8 births for every 1,000 adolescent females, compared with 26.5 births for every 1,000 adolescent females in 2013. Still, the U.S. teen birth rate is higher than that of many other developed countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom.[2]” (emphasis added)

teenbirthsgraph2011
I guess that President Obama is responsible for a twenty year trend?!

If you look down the article a little further you see that it’s Southern states that have the highest teen pregnancy rates. But before comrades use this as evidence that the dumb, gun and religion clinging, xenophobic, KKKonservatives and Rethuglicans are hypocrites let’s take a look at some state data. In this case, I’ll use Texas.

Let's accuse the racist white folks of hypocrisy without looking at the data...
Let’s accuse the racist white folks of hypocrisy without looking at the data more closely…

Of all teen pregnancies in Texas, only 21% are from Non-Hispanic, White mothers. I know that I don’t have to look this statistic up, but more than 21% of Texas is made up of those evil white people.

We can still blame whitey for this…

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action surely is a great diplomatic achievement courtesy of John Kerry. Just as Iran honored the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty they will also another piece of paper in which provisions expire after ten to fifteen years anyway. Do not look at how Iran’s Uranium stockpile continues to grow. You should also ignore how Iran is testing ICBM’s in violation of a U.N. treaty that they are already party to. To quote Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan, Iran’s Defense Minister:

To follow our defense programs, we don’t ask permission from anyone,

I think that such language is pretty clear, but when you’re a proud progressive words mean whatever you want them to. I suppose that all of those “Death to America” chants are also just meant for domestic consumption and have no real meaning.

The GDP growth only goes over a single quarter of the Obama Administration and ignore all the others. It’s amazing what you can do with numbers when you ignore all the ones that are inconvenient. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis U.S. GDP growth has been low or negative for many quarters during President Obama’s tenure, but reading that data is thoughtcrimeAny reports that Obama Administration GDP growth estimates have been way too high are also completely and totally false. Flag your own lying eyes. It’s amazing what you can do with some Common Core math.

Concerning the Dow Jones Industrial Average, since when did followers of the Church of Socialism want the wretched “1%” and big corporations to make a bunch of money? I mean the Dow Jones represents just 30 of those evil and large corporations and not the “working class” right? I suppose that the Federal Reserve using trillions in quantitative easing to inflate the economy counts as real growth right? What the Federal Reserve is doing is totally different from what Zimbabwe did to itself. It’s really interesting to look at Federal Reserve Monetary Policy Reports to get an idea of whether there has been real economic growth or not.

Feel the Bern, part three

Good evening comrades, it’s time to post more Party information and Truth on why Kommissar Bernie Sanders would be a great President of the coming United Socialist States of America (U.S.S.A). I will use many fine pieces of pictorial propaganda explain why Sanders is a fine Communist, I mean Democratic Party candidate.

I’ve been told by proud Party members that Bernie Sanders and his campaign don’t sell T-shirts…

Those Party members are true comrades who either aren’t able to use search engines, or willfully deny the Kurrent Truth for the Greater Good.

Why vote Hillary?

Why is it that evil RethugliKKKans and KKKonservatives, and Losertarians continue to oppose Shillary Hillary? How could fiends even as wretched as those individuals possibly oppose such an enlightened progressive? Why haven’t these losers looked at Hillary’s voting record and television interviews to see just how much she pushes the progressive agenda from the Wrar in Iraq, to marriage, the TPP, and to the evil gender wage gap. Let’s take a moment to look at the stunning achievements that Hillary has championed, shall we?

Hillary on the war in Iraq:

Hillary on gay marriage:

Hillary would never, ever flip-flop on issues just to garner votes. That’s simply beneath her. Let’s hear what she has to say about sexual assault victims:

Look at the confidence that people have in Hillary’s statements!

Remember, it’s Republicans that are engaging in a War on Womyn™. Hillary cares about what women and rape victims  think.

Hillary+clinton+the+war+on+women+the+real+war_a312aa_5291098 33250

Remember, as a proud and loyal Party member you must partake in the “two minutes of hate” every day against Bill Cosby. Any defense given by him or his lawyer must not be accepted. The charges are simply too serious to do otherwise.

The Republican War on Womyn™must be fought and their will broken.

Understand that Hillary supports fighting the Patriarchy© and ending the evil gender wage gap. Any thoughtcriminal who dares to mention the Equal Pay Act of 1963 should be silenced. Even the Administrative arms of the government support equal pay. Isn’t that just wonderful?

worth-sharing2

Any evil RethugliKKKan’s who point out the gender wage gap in Hillary’s own campaign staff are buffoons who simply have no understanding of economics. While it’s OK for progs to use aggregate pay data rather than actually controlling for applicable factors when decrying the whole nation, it’s unacceptable to use such logic on a Progressive campaign.

Male-Female-comparison

Never forget peasants citizens, the differences in comparing what all men get paid versus all women have absolutely nothing to do with completely voluntary life choices. The Patriarchy© is at fault. But don’t talk about how almost all workplace deaths are men. That part of “equality” simply isn’t important.

Hillary has also accomplished quite a lot. Let’s hear what her supporters have to say about Hillary’s experience and qualifications:

Hillary was First Lady for a while and traveled a lot as Secretary of State. Don’t you dare ask Hillary how Libya is going though. As we can all clearly see, Hillary will make a fine Presidential candidate. The world of Next Tuesday™ is drawing near, and it will be quite glorious. Forward!

European socialism and automotive expertise

Progressives just love to talk about how socialism in the Nordic countries is successful and seem to like the policies enforced in Continental Europe. But when the government gives out something for free, is it really free? Did countries like Norway, Sweden, and Denmark create a classless utopia and Worker’s Paradise? Let’s look at some data compiled by an individual who came from Denmark and has firsthand experience from Democratic-Socialism which is supposedly different than Socialism. It’s amazing that progressives will claim that Socialism is different from Democratic-Socialism.

Here’s a sampling of the work from Manipulism by Mikkel Clair Nissen.

Socialism is working out so well for many countries of the E.U! The European Union is/has been just full of communists.

Remember when progressives worldwide were hailing the election of communists in Greece? I’ll write more soon on the continuing Greek tragedy in coming posts.

What’s Martin O’ Malley sorry about?

Hopeful Democratic nominee for President Martin O’ Malley is sorry that he said “all lives matter” and now realizes that such a statement is unacceptable to the Democratic Party. Comrade O’ Malley has come to the realization that all lives do not matter, only the ones the Party deems appropriate or important. O’ Malley now realizes that it’s only OK to state that black lives matter, but specifically regarding interactions with law enforcement and problems caused by “society”.  Any mention of all the murders going on in Chicago, Detroit, and Baltimore that are not committed by police or white people are not important.

Every good comrade knows (especially when going to a Nutroots convention) that all comments to the about the Party must promote racial division for the glory of the Party and that it’s really it’s the votes that matter. Anyone who disagrees with the Party narrative is a racist, bigot, sexist, homophobe, and deserves to be smeared. It’s not like O’ Malley had a chance against Shillary Billary Chillary Hillary and Sanders anyway.

For those comrades reading this who happen to be white, feel free to grovel and apologize for your existence.

Evil, sexist, bigoted, and greedy white people think that their opinions, let alone all lives matter.
