One Nation, Under Astroturf

3 October 2010

Yesterday, it was the extreme left wing’s turn to throw a rally in DC, in an attempt to surpass the Beck/Palin “Restore Honor” rally… to prove that there was no “enthusiam gap” (H/T: “KOS Laughs At Chuckles”, DoD) and to motivate the “whining” (H/T: Joe Biden) Democratic base of FNCB progs (H/T: Mandy Manners) in the run up to the November mid-term elections. By all accounts, this Obama-backed rally was a complete failure. Although both rallies billed themselves as “non-partisan”, the rally yesterday was a hate-mongering affair organized by communists and terrorist sympathizers and attended by a diverse crowd of unions (H/T: Ace of Spades). In fact, the attendees were union members ordered to attend and bused to DC for the purpose, simply to provide a large number of attendees to stage a propaganda event.

I had considered showing up to take pictures and check it out in person; but I was afraid I might catch something – and I also didn’t want to help beef up their attendance numbers (since each person in the area was being counted by the media and left-wing bloggers as fifty people). However, I did go into Washington, DC, later in the day after the rally broke up and the people were leaving, and I did make a few observations. What I saw on the DC Metro were organized groups (people with identical union-mass-produced t-shirts and signs) generally following a leader telling them where to go (directing them through the Metro system and back to their buses). I resisted the urge to also tell them where to go, since some of them were SEIU thugs. I noticed that the “One Nation” t-shirts I saw had a different logo from the one announced, probably because of all the mockery that one received (although nowhere near the level of ridicule received by the new Democrat logo). I also saw signs and other detritus (like a copy of a socialist workers newspaper) abandoned on trains, in stations, and in the Metro parking lot, which as we all know is typical for when moonbats congregate. So, all in all, no surprises there.

I wonder what kind of state Stewart and Colbert will leave the capital in when they host their shindig just before Election Day.

Happy Birthday to Me

30 September 2010

I started this blog a year ago today, after I was locked out of another blog for disagreeing with the hivemind there. My posting here may be irregular, but thanks to the four or five of you who read it anyway. And a shout out to my Blogroll – I visit all of those sites at least once a day (weekends may vary), even if I only comment at a handful of them.

No Apology for Hiroshima

6 August 2010

Those millions of lives we saved by ending the war quickly – with two atom bombs rather than by a grueling invasion that Japan was already preparing to defend against to the death – include Japanese civilians as well as US servicemen. Harry S Truman didn’t just reduce our casualties with those bombs, he also reduced theirs. A lot of people in Japan today are only alive because their parents weren’t killed in the invasion that liberals still think would have been preferable. So don’t say “I’m sorry.” Say “You’re welcome.”

Happy Birthday to the USA!

They Can’t Fatwa EVERYBODY.

19 May 2010

Tomorrow is “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day” (even if it was fearfully disavowed by the woman who thought it up). Not everybody is prepared to draw a line in the sand for free speech, especially given the responses from some muslims before any of the drawings even hit the internet.

A number of sites have been accepting submissions, and planning to display as many such drawings as they can get tomorrow. I already missed the deadline for most of them; but I’ve got this blog here to host my amateur scribbles come the morrow.

Time for Tea

15 April 2010

If you can, attend one of the many Tea Party demonstrations and gatherings across the country today for Tax Day. And if you do, make sure you bring a camera; both to document the true nature of the actual Tea Party members, and also to help debunk all of the inevitable lies and smears that will be hitting the news tonight and tomorrow. If the media can’t get good shots of infiltraters who are pretending to be Tea Partiers, they’ll just make stuff up. And, of course, even the most innocent words and comments will be exposed as “racist code words” by the true hate merchants…

Dog whistle: If I say it’s a racist code word, then it’s a racist code word. Asking me for proof? That’s a racist code word.

Happy Highway Robbery Day

Yule Logs

7 January 2010

The ‘caganer’ (literally ‘defecator’) is a feature of Catalan nativity scenes. The figure is usually tucked away in a corner of the model, far away from the manger itself, for children to find. The caganer represents fertility and equality. The figure was traditionally a representation of a Catalan peasant wearing a red stocking hat, but modern caganers are often caricatures of famous people

Well, that’s an … interesting … tradition. Would have made a great addition to the White House nativity scene. Umm… did the White House actually have a nativity scene this Christmas, or were they too busy sending out good vibes for Eid, Kwanzaa, the Winter Solstice, and so on? Anyway, it’s all part of rich cultural diversity, and not nearly as offensive as the Head O State (Warning! NSFW!)

Happy New Year!

1 January 2010

2010 – The year we take back the Congress, God willing.

Yes, that’s it for today. I still need more time to get over last night, before I can write a longer entry with words of over two sylla… sylla… thingies.

Merry Christmas, All!

25 December 2009

And happy holidays as well. I’m spending the day with my family, and hope that those of you who are willing and able are also with your loved ones. See you tomorrow.
