The rot of political correctness
Washington Times, by Tammy Bruce

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 4/19/2017 8:19:46 AM

In today’s academy, truth is an invention. Expecting people to show up on time is racist. Censorship is good. Silencing opposing viewpoints imperative. Violence to enforce safety is natural. For the last 25 years, under the guise of “political correctness,” we’ve been watching the inexplicable flow into our culture. The idiotic demands of political correctness in the 1980s, ironically relying on the decency of the American people for their acquiescence, was just the prep course, an amuse bouche before the main course of creating social chaos and destruction. It sounds dramatic, and it is, and it’s also the only way

I don´t know if "rot" is the word I would use I prefer the tyranny of politically correctness.

FTA "Last year, we watched political correctness on campus jump with abandon into its perfected state of fascism. Within a year, we moved from weeping students demanding safe spaces to direct, organized violence to stop speakers who do not pay allegiance to the left’s status quo."

To me that violence is tyranny of the left.

In the 1960s, liberals were against government and anyone in authority (´´The Man´´) Now, liberals want more government. Bigger, more intrusive government. Government that dominates our lives.

Why? I think it is because of various frustrations with their lives. They can´t resolve those frustrations, so they want the government to step in on their behalf- Make people do and behave as THEY wish them to. Punish those who believe differently. I think that´s why we see all the emotional outbursts from the many wackos on TV. Emotion emanating from their frustrations and inability to cope.

The sad thing is that they are told they are, indeed victims of society and that political correctness is the proper way to restrain those who disagree with them.

Once you let women vote you run the risk of establishing a "Marriage" where one is provided a home and sustenance but wherein one is subjected to a variety of potential abuses...loss of freedom, rule by fiat, vile and pernicious intrusion into one´s personal affairs.....all the pathologies found in an abusive relationship.

I love women but our proud Republic has been transformed into a vision that our ´Founding Mothers´ might have preferred.

We all grew up as children in a system where mom decided everything and made sure we ´shared´ and played nice. Nurseries are and should be socialist.

But it´s no way to run a country.

Please pardon my ´Sexist´ analogy but it is offered more in sorrow than in anger.

Let´s stop calling it "political correctness" - it is self-censorship to avoid the bullying crowd. It spelled the end of free speech, the elimination thereof has proceeded to mob violence and threats to those with an "unacceptable" message or thought.

This censorship is also being applied retroactively, not unlike other authoritarians who believed destroying the non-compliant past by everything from book/scroll burnings to temple desecration and discrediting the thinkers was necessary for their ultimate, eternal survival.

Yes, PC is blatant censorship. Why would anyone use censorship? Censorship is the last refuge of anyone who can not win an argument on its merit. Obviously, the leftist has no valid argument except in a dictatorial state, getting the State to do his bidding. Nothing leftists say makes sense because they are always speaking from the extremist position.

Adolph Hitler used a famous quite similar tactical argument that is studied (or once was) in university rhetoric classes. The argument went something like this:

A wolf and a rat can not breed (a position that would seem obvious to anyone as true).

The offspring would be more than the rat and less than the wolf. (Huh? There can be NO offspring from such an impossible union!)

Then the substitution;

The Teutonic Perfect , like the wolf, would be greatly diminished as a species (Teutonics are now separate supermen/wolf-like ´species´)and if they were to breed with rat-like Jews. (Jews are rats is the mental imagery wished for), they would destroy the Perfect Teutonic man!.

The argument is utterly that of an uneducated, ignorant speaker who only wants to inflame one people against another. Incredibly, the ludicrous argument was enthusiastically accepted by the masses of people. Hitler was associating Teutonic Germans with a powerful animal- Just like a Sports team mentality - The Chicago Bears, vs the Jerusalem Rats! Yea Team!. The logic and validity of the argument did not matter what-so-ever. It worked on people´s self worth (for both Germans and Jews)!

The leftists use these same mental tactics. Few have called them on it.

DT has, though! And others have seen, it stops the lefties cold and are joining in.

And that fully explains Trump Derangement Syndrome.

At 100 Days, Trump´s No Russian
Stooge or Fascist

Before Donald Trump won the election in November we were warned: He is a Russian stooge. He is a fascist. He will upend the protocols and traditions that make governing possible. This is not normal. Now that we are approaching the 100-day mark, it´s worth noting that the president is defying the expectations of his resistance. And while there is plenty to oppose in Trump´s young presidency, he is neither the Siberian Candidate nor the second coming of Mussolini. Let´s start with Russia. The FBI is still investigating whether and how his campaign may have colluded with Moscow´s efforts to influence the

What kind of conservative is President Trump? He must be some kind of conservative, because for nearly 100 days and counting, liberals have poured on him the kind of vitriol they do not reserve for moderates or ideological nobodys. Inside the Beltway, some famous conservatives have joined in the sport but for the opposite reason, that Mr. Trump, they claim, is no conservative but a populist demagogue out to discredit and destroy their beloved movement. In his three major public speeches so far — his remarks at the Republican National Convention, his Inaugural Address and his speech to a joint session

I tell my constitutional law students that there are a couple of statements that indicate that a speaker is a constitutional illiterate who can safely be ignored. One is the claim that the Constitution views black people as ? the worth of white people (actually, it was all about power in Congress, with slaveowners wanting black people to count 100% toward apportionment so that slaveowners would get more seats in Congress, and abolitionists wanting them not counted at all so that slaveowners would get fewer seats in Congress; the ? compromise was just that, a compromise).

Obama’s Iran Deal Was Much
Worse Than We Suspected
The Federalist, by David Harsanyi    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/25/2017 7:58:33     Post Reply
What if Donald Trump had unilaterally shut down every investigation into Russian espionage, released over 20 suspected Russian spies, struck a deal to get rid of sanctions against Russia—in return for honoring deals that had been signed years before—and then lied to the American people about the entire episode? That’s the Obama Administration’s Iran deal. It might have been the first time the United States has offered extensive concessions to a nation that has continued to destabilize its interests, for nothing in return. But Barack Obama didn’t just support Iran’s position over our allies like Israel (no surprise there, considering his

Despite the best efforts of the White House “PR apparatus” to sell the president’s first 100 days as a success, the New York Times declared in an editorial, the new administration has, in fact, been plagued by “many missteps” including a “bungled sales job” on his first major legislative initiative and a “snakebit” confirmation process, all of which have produced “a flurry of articles bemoaning the lack of focus in the White House.” The first 100 days, the Times declared, is a period the president “might prefer to forget.” The president in question is not Donald Trump.

Why the GOP Is in No Rush
to Repeal Obamacare
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

President Trump recently stated that he would like the House of Representatives to move forward on its revised Obamacare “repeal and replace” bill immediately after Congress returns from its spring recess. On Saturday, however, Speaker Paul Ryan announced that no vote was scheduled on the measure. The Trump administration would like to chalk up a legislative win before it crosses the symbolic “first 100 days” mark, but GOP conservatives and moderates are still squabbling over the details of the bill. Neither camp seems to be in any hurry to get repeal done. Why? The answer is both simple and disgusting.

By his twenties, Kyle Kaylor imagined he would be living on his own, nearing a college degree, and on his way to a job that fulfilled him. Instead, at 21, he found himself out of school, living with his parents, and "stuck" working as a manager at a fast food restaurant scraping to make hand-to-mouth. Launching into adulthood has been tricky, he said. "It became too difficult financially to be in school and not working," says Kaylor, who dropped out of Lincoln Christian University, in Illinois, after one semester because of a money crunch.

Before Hillary Clinton puts more miles on her comeback tour, Democrats should let her know she’s done enough damage and it’s time to pack it in. That won’t stop her, since even after losing to Donald Trump she fancies herself some misunderstood martyr, but it might slow her down a bit. While they crawl out of the wilderness that both Clinton and President Obama left them in, any moments Democrats spend amusing their failed 2016 nominee as she tries to find a way back to some sort of relevance is more than wasted energy -- it’s self-sabotage.

The results from Georgia’s 6th are in, let the overanalyzing begin. First, just to state the obvious, the Democrats fell short of their goal. They tried to pitch the special election as a referendum on President Trump, but that message failed. It seems strange, but today’s liberals invested a huge amount of money, media attention, and hopes and dreams in a 30-year-old straight, white Southern male. I think it points to the bewilderment within the Democratic Party. Looking at the mixed bag of confusing images and messages that have come from the left of late, it’s easy to ask: Who are

Waiting for Trump tax relief

“Everything in moderation” can be sage advice, especially when it applies to government and gluttony. When the administrative state sticks to its proper limited role, costs are contained and taxes are bearable. But the bloated administrative state snacks on billions and feasts on trillions. As Americans hustle to file their last-minute tax returns for 2016, Donald Trump’s promised relief is obviously too late to lessen the burden this tax season, which ends Tuesday. If help doesn’t come soon, hope for an era of renewed prosperity will soon be but a fading memory. Reality can make a hash of hope, and the

With President Trump’s 100th day in office coming at the end of the month, media have already begun the timeless—and meaningless—process of dissecting how he is doing. One hundred is an arbitrary deadline, born of our society’s enduring fascination with round numbers. Nonetheless, we persist in asking presidential candidates what their first 100 days would be like and then judging the winner at the same mark. Our system of government gives the president enormous power to make things happen in his first 100 days (or in any 100-day period, for that matter). However, the chief executive’s ability to move swiftly runs smack

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

Barack Obama has agreed to a $400,000 fee for speaking to a prominent Wall Street firm, according to Charlie Gasparino of the Fox Business Network. Former president Obama will speak to a health care conference sponsored by Cantor Fitzgerald in September, Gasparino reports. (Tweet/Video) The huge fee puts Obama at the top of the list of speaking fees for former government officials. Former Fed chair Ben Bernanke charges between $200,000 and $400,000, former Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner charges $200,000, and former President George Bush charges around $150,000, according to a person familiar with the matter.

It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen.

Former President Barack Obama on Monday partly blamed the nation´s splintered politics on a media structure that lets people only listen to or read media outlets they agree with, which prevents them from hearing the other side. "Because of changes in the media, we now have a situation in which everybody is listening to people who already agree with them, and are further and further reinforcing their own realities to the neglect of the common reality that allows us to have a healthy debate, and then try to find common ground and actually move solutions forward," Obama said in his

Ex-President Barack Obama is the mystery man of American politics. Given the absence of a viable paper trail, nobody can say for sure who he is. He manifests for us as a figure of multiple identities: a Christian, a Muslim, a secularist, a socialist, a humanist, an intellectual, a man of the people. His lack of definable substance, his inner absence, has been an important political advantage. As Obama himself confessed (or boasted) in The Audacity of Hope, this layering of anonymities enabled him to “serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their

Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch. The filthy fashion statement isn´t actually new -- the jeans have been for sale at Nordstrom as well as at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for quite some time.
