Monopolizing the Narrative

Harvey, at IMAO, posted an excerpt from Matt Walsh’s astute piece discussing the “Check Your Privilege” meme.

Walsh described such rhetoric as a “Get Out of Thinking” card.

Here’s your card:

The Great War, A Hundred Years Ago

To the men that fought in a war where technology had the upper hand.

On July 28th, 1914, the first shots of what would become known as the Great War, and later as World War One, were fired as Austria-Hungarian forces prepared to invade Serbia and began a cascade of alliances set in motion which would drag most of Europe and powers outside of Europe into one of the deadliest wars in world history. A war that was just the beginning of wars to come and would be the keystone in a series of events that caused World War II, the spread of Communism, the following Cold War, and indirectly events still playing out today.

He Sort of Said This

So, the Official Barack Odumbo Twitter account is full of exactly what you'd expect, dumb platitudes, moronic graphics and blatant propaganda. Most of it is so stupid or full of logical fallacies that it trying to argue against it is like trying to untie a Gordian Knot of Ignorance.

But this one. This one is special.

And this one.

Link of the Day: Do You Have a Dirty Mind?

All right, here is your official content warning: There is nothing objectionable about these pictures, unless you have a dirty mind, which, apparently, despite repeated scrubbings with a wire brush, I still do. And even then, there's nothing objectionable about the pictures. You're just a pervert.

Actually, one of them appears to be an attempt at a naughty innuendo, but the rest of them...purely accidental.

Oh Lord I Want to Be In That Number

Earlier this week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi described the torrent of unaccompanied minors illegally entering the U.S. From Mexico as a “humanitarian crisis,” and admonished those who would turn them away, saying “baby Jesus was a refugee from violence.”

Of course, to her, a few months prior, Jesus was apparently just a clump of tissue with no intrinsic human rights, whatsoever.

Then, at her weekly press briefing Friday, she noted “They are children,” and asked, “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the Pharaohs family? We would not have the Ten Commandments, for starters.”

A Little Old, But Still...

I came across this poll a week and a half ago, detailing the difference between religions and their approval of Obama:

While honestly I can't imagine why ANY group still has a positive opinion of the guy, I'm not at all surprised at the results. Notice the two extremes: Muslims at one end and Mormons at the other.

Interestingly, in my research on the matter, I've found those two groups to be about as diametrically opposed as you could imagine:  Harry Reid notwithstanding, Mormons place value on personal responsibility, the importance of education and the freedom to make ones own decision and worship as one chooses, whereas Islamists tend to value just the opposite.

Just sayin'.

Obama Warned Us - Cynicism

Apologies for ripping off Harvey's topic, but I couldn't resist. I place the blame squarely on PTSD.

“Cynicism has never won a war, or cured a disease, or started a business. —President Obama:

“Come to think of it, neither has anyone in this administration.”

Just a Little Over the Top, Barber

Addressing Netroots Nation recently, North Carolina NAACP president William Barber II continually characterized those with different opinions as “extreme and immoral,” and said that he was sick of “freedom” being the basis of conservative policy. At one point, he excoriated those who “refuse to pass anything just because you don’t like little black girls having pajama parties in the White House.”

No, Reverend Barber, those aren’t the types of pajama parties we object to.

I, Hippie

Here for your edification and enjoyment, a little treat from Dana Carvey. He's got a bunch of them at the link, but the one I saw first on the Tonight Show wasn't there, which is kind of awesome I could only find on YouTube, videoed off of somebody's television. So: sorry about the poor sound and video quality, but it's still pretty funny.

Skein of Terror! Part Deux

An atheist group is peeved by the Supreme Court’s ruling that people who own a company can’t be forced to relinquish their religious tenets concerning the sanctity of innocent human life, while they’re essentially being forced to pay for their employees’ healthcare.

This calls for a symbolic protest — but hashtags are so two months ago.

The Secular Coalition for America has come up with a campaign so secular and coalitiony that it will strike the fear of...uh...nothingness into anybody who dares to have a theistic thought.

What is this one weird trick they have up their collective secular sleeve?

Hey Europe, Your Hate is Showing

Circa 19../20..?

The place is Berlin. Angry crowds are mulling about outside of the Reichstag and elsewhere in the city, incensed at the actions and audacity of the people they've chosen to side against and place the blame on for a hundred crimes, real or imagined. The enemy are the Jews, or Juden. The eternal bogeymen of Europe, many Germans have had enough of them and their aggression. And with a loud voice, they proclaim their anger towards them."Jude! Jude! Etappenschwein!" they cried. "Jew! Jew! Cowardly Pig!" and "Come out and fight us!".

The date: July18th...2014.

Fun With Word Crimes

There is someone around here who absolutely loves, Loves, LOVES words. And hates word crimes.

So when I saw Weird Al got out the Grammar Hammer for the first single from his new album, Mandatory Fun, I figured it might make for some amusing moments around NPHQ.

So, without further delay, here's Weird Al's Word Crimes:

Let's Send Jews To Mars...All of Them

Jews in Spaaaaaace....
So once again, Israel screwed up. Hamas fired rockets at them, and they shot them down. Then they retaliated, and a lot of "Palestinians" died.  The world media took a lot of pictures of the dead Palestinians, and Israel only had like one dead guy to show for it. So this makes the Palestinians the good guys, automatically...if you are European. Or stupid. Or a leftist. Or a conspiracy theorist who hates Jews. Or a white supremacist. Or a black supremacist. Which are all the same thing really; a long list of stupid people.

Great Tunes - You Shook Me All Night Long - ACDC

Lets face it: There is no possible way to hate this song. No matter how many times or how often you hear it, it's always got to bring a smile to your face, and an air guitar to your hands. Back in the days when I could actually hit a high note or two, this was one of my favorite karaoke songs. Anyway, I got to thinking: If Obama were to sing this song for karaoke, how would he do it? (Why I was thinking this isn't important right now.) I thought he would probably do it in a smarmy lounge style, like Richard Cheese, the title would have to be changed to something like I Shook You All Term Long, and the words would have to go a little something like this:

Transform the Fundaments,
Cause I'm the President.
And the Good Lord knows that I am

So, last week, Twitter was all aglow with Palestinians and their supporters trying to gain sympathy from the world after Israel clobbered them with a few missles in retaliation for what is estimated to be, annually, about 7000 rockets fired from Gaza at civilians in Israel.

How did they go about do this?

Well, they took a cue from Dear Leader and started a hashtag campaign. Only, instead of using their prior, time-honored hashtags like #freeGaza and #freePalestine, they decided to try a few new ones, like #HitlerWasRight and #HitlerDidNothingWrong.

I'm sure that's going to gain a lot of sympathy, because as everyone knows, four million Hew-hating Palestinians just CAN"T be wrong. And if I want insightful commentary on a major issue facing the modern world, obviously the first place I'm going to look is Twitter.

Oh, #Hitler! If loving you is wrong, I don't want to be right!

History tells us that Hitler wasn't ALWAYS right, though, doesn't it? I mean, he DID do at least a few things wrong, on which I think we can ALL agree. For example, he thought he could be an artist, and that didn't turn out really well, now did it? And that whole thing with trying to invade Moscow in the winter went down as one of history's biggest blunders. Even Napoleon would couldn't argue with that.

But I'm sure that even those of us who don't hate Jews can find a common ground with those who do, and agree that, at least in some ways, #HitlerWasRight.
  • Communism stinks on ice. #HitlerWasRight
  • A Beer Hall is as good a place as any, when Putsch comes to shove. #HitlerWasRight
  • Big Bertha is an AWESOME name for a cannon. #HitlerWasRight
  • Some books are better burned than read. #HitlerWasRight
  • If you scapegoat the Jews enough, the Arabs will kill themselves trying to exterminate them. #HitlerWasRight.
  • The enemy of my enemy is my friend. For now. #HitlerWasRight
  • Austrian is the language of the future. #HitlerWasRight
  • French people are rude and arrogant and need to be squashed. #HitlerWasRight
  • The rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain. #HitlerWasRight

Attempted Sniglet

Neither hair nor there.

You Can't Make This Up

So, this is a real thing:

UNRWA, in case you didn't know, is the United Nations ageny that provides aid and comfort to terroritss the Palestinians in Gaza.

So, your tax dollars went to fund that Agency that built a building to aid terrorists that the terrorists accidentally blew up and now will undoubtedly demand (aided by the "progressive" democRats in Congress) that you spend more of your tax dollars to rebuild so they can blow up more Jooz without having to worry about taking care of their human shields families that they are raising to blow up more Jooz.

And yet WE'RE the racists and anti-Semites.
