“Straight White Guy Festival” Jest Upsets Diversity Police

1279_1405763864

“Come help us celebrate our enjoyment of being straight, white, and male,” the flier said. “Beer available.”

When some fake fliers advertising an upcoming “Straight White Guy festival” appeared in an Ohio town, last summer,  some humor-impaired individuals didn’t appreciate the humor or even get that it was a joke.

“This kind of thing implies there’s some kind of struggle going on for being a straight white person in Ohio,” one area resident sniffed.  “Straight white people are doing just fine.”

Hurrumph!

The leader of an organization pushing same-sex marriage whined that “the flyer is not productive.”  Thankfully, the situation provided an opportunity for a “teaching moment.”

Listen up, you knuckle draggers.

Via 10-tv.com:

“I think it detracts from the real problems of Ohio that need to be solved, that are being denied their constitutional rights because of who they are, or who the love. And that’s what we really need to work on and this is just kind of a distraction,” he added.

I’d say that whoever did this bad thing has been properly chastised. Shame on them and their white/straight/male privilege.

If the diversity police ever finds out who did the dastardly deed, they’ll publish his name and address on left-wing message boards so he and his family can be properly harassed. Then, they’ll call his employer and try to get him fired. Nice, tolerant citizens that they are.

A couple of thought criminals were interviewed for the story:

“I think it’s funny. If they want to do this, great, freedom of expression,” said Cheralyn Elkins.

“It doesn’t offend me personally,” added Collin Brubaker. “But I can think of people it would offend.”

I hope those two survived the wrath of the perpetually outraged.

The Federalist: Gay Marriage: No One Expects the Secular Inquisition:

Personally, I have no problem with gay people getting hitched, having weddings, and saying that they are “married.” I don’t have any religious objection, on account of not being religious, nor do I think gay marriages, given their very small numbers, will have any particular impact on the state of marriage as an important social institution. (Which, alas, has all sorts of problems of its own.)

But the test of liberty isn’t what happens to people who agree with the intent of a particular edict. The test is what happens to people who disagree.

That brings us to the reason why gay rights advocates insisted on the government granting same-sex unions the title of “marriage.” The theory behind this was that homosexuals suffer from a lack of social acceptance, and gay marriage would put the government’s imprimatur on their status as social equals—along with the promise that this equality is to be backed by government force.

The theory behind gay marriage, in short, was the theory behind the entire secular left: society and the state are the all-powerful forces on which the life of the individual depends, and the most important political task—indeed, the most important task in life—is getting this irresistible power on your side. Once you gain social and political power, you hold on to it by making your preferred views mandatory, a catechism everyone must affirm, while suppressing all heretical views. In this case, to gain social acceptance of homosexuality, you make the affirmation of gay marriages mandatory while officially suppressing any dissenting religious views.

Hence, the Secular Inquisition, which we should have expected all along.

America In Crisis and POTUS Won’t Lead: Former Officials Seem “Scared,” Worried,” “Alarmed” (Video)

Former Obama CIA Director and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has been making the media rounds promoting his book, Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace – seen by many as an attempt to inoculate Hillary Clinton (and himself) from Obama’s disastrous foreign policies.

In an interview described as “devastating” to Obama, Tuesday night,  he shared his thought’s with Bill O’Reilly on what he perceives to be the president’s lack of leadership on the world stage.

Following the interview, O’Reilly had Charles Krauthammer on the Factor to discuss what was said. Dr. K said that “even though his tone was measured and restrained,” the content of the interview was “utterly devastating” to the president.

He was basically saying this president cannot lead. He is indecisive and he is weak” Krauthammer declared.

He added “what was so interesting is, it wasn’t even in the discussion that Iraq or Afghanistan, but this won’t even be reported, but the thing he said about Ukraine where he just sort of he laid out what should be done…and he said this just outright, you said, ‘why doesn’t he do it?’ He had absolutely no answer.”

Krauthammer concluded “it’s not just indecisiveness and how tentative Obama is, but it’s also how political he is. Remember when Gates, Bob Gates wrote his book, he talked about how the decision-making about the surge in Afghanistan and then leaving in Afghanistan was essentially dictated by the political types in the white house, and you get the same thing in the Panetta book about Iraq. He knew we had to leave troops in Iraq. It is one of the worst decisions ever made by this president.” And “it was the political nature of that [the withdrawal from Iraq] that, I think, is the biggest indictment of Obama, where he put the White House concerns about the political partisan fortunes of the president above the national security of the country.”

Former White House Press Secretary under President Bush, Dana Perino, appeared on the Kelly File Tuesday with Megyn Kelly to discuss the interview which aired right before her show.

Calling it a “scathing” interview, Kelly noted that he is the third top Obama Cabinet member to openly criticize the president’s decision-making –  first Former Defense Chief Robert Gates, then former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, and now former Defense Sec. Leon Panetta.

Kelly and Perino were struck by the undercurrent of worry and alarm present in these former top officials’ books.

Perino noted that all of them have said in their books that they gave Obama advice and he went the other way. She wanted to know “if they felt so strongly at the time that politics was trumping people, then why didn’t they resign on principle?”

Kelly said Panetta seems “scared” and “genuinely worried.”  She added, “he seems to be trying to telegraph to us that he’s very concerned about the man sitting in the Oval Office right now.”

Even former president Jimmy Carter (the 2nd to worst president in American history) is harshing on Obama’s mellow:

Via TIME:

Former President Jimmy Carter has criticized the Obama administration’s handling of the crisis in the Middle East and the growing threat of the Islamic State, joining a growing list of the president’s allies who are scrutinizing his strategy in Syria and Iraq.

In an interview with the Fort Worth, Tex. Star-Telegram published Tuesday, Carter said the U.S. had waited too long to respond to the growing power of the Islamic State in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) extremist group, which also goes by the name Islamic State.

“We let the Islamic state build up its money, capability and strength and weapons while it was still in Syria,” Carter said. “Then when [ISIS] moved into Iraq, the Sunni Muslims didn’t object to their being there and about a third of the territory in Iraq was abandoned.”

The White House sent out political hack Bill Burton – not to discuss Panetta’s criticisms on the merits – but to verbally attack him with childish name-calling taunts.

The White House dispatched long-time Obama hack Bill Burton to smear Panetta.

Via TWS:

A former spokesman for President Barack Obama, Bill Burton, went on CNN last night to unload on the president’s former defense secretary and former CIA director, Leon Panetta. Burton is upset about some of the things Panetta wrote in his memoir, which hit shelves yesterday, and called the long-time public servant “sad,” “dishonorable,” “small and petty.”

The RNC couldn’t have done a better job proving Panetta’s point that this White House is unserious and overly concerned with petty politics to the nation’s detriment.

Now It Can Be Told: Fence Jumper Made It Waaay Inside White House

Initially, officials indicated that the White house intruder, Omar Gonzalez, was apprehended just inside the main entrance. Now it’s come out that he made it much deeper inside – suggesting even greater failure on the part of the Secret Service – not to mention the predictable mendacity of the White House spin machine.

Via The Washington Examiner: 

The intruder, Omar Gonzalez, jumped the fence, sprinted through the front door, overpowered one Secret Service officer and ran through much of the main floor before begin apprehended, according to the Washington Post.

An alarm box near the front entrance designed to alert guards to an intruder was muted — apparently at the request of the usher’s office, an unnamed Secret Service official told Washington Post.

After darting past a guard at the front, Gonzalez, who had a knife, went past the stairway that leads up to the first family’s living quarters. He then ran into the East Room, which is often used for receptions and or presidential addresses.

At the southern end of the East Room, Gonzales was tackled by a counter-assault agent.

Tuesday, the House Oversight and Reform Committee will hold a hearing to discuss the recent security lapses by the Secret Service.

 

 

Video The Spread of the Caliphate: The Islamic State (Part 1)

Via The Right Scoop:

Ice News had a reporter embedded with the Islamic State, the new Caliphate that immediately threatens Iraq, Syria, Israel and the larger Middle East and put together this 5-part documentary on them. They’ve released part one today and in it, the Islamic State Press Officer says they are coming for the US and will hang the flag of Allah in the White House:

Only thirteen years after 9/11, how could we have allowed this to happen?

Fox News Bombshell: Regime Knew Benghazi Was A Terrorist Attack While It Was Happening

In an explosive interview on Fox News’ Special Report, Wednesday, Eric Stahl, a retired major in the U.S. Air Force, told Bret Baier that  U.S. spy agencies were able to hear terrorists making phone calls to their superior commanding officers while the attack on the consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi was taking place on September 11, 2012. The reason the communications were easily intercepted is because the attackers were using State Department cell phones they had seized during the attacks.

It wasn’t weeks, days, or even hours before the “fog of war” had cleared and the Regime could piece together what had happened. They knew in real time - as it was happening – that it was a terrorist attack because they heard the terrorists themselves talking on their own State Dept cellphones.

Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, served as commander and pilot of the C-17 aircraft that was used to transport the corpses of the four casualties from the Benghazi attacks – then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – as well as the assault’s survivors from Tripoli to the safety of an American military base in Ramstein, Germany.

In an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.” Asked how, Stahl told anchor Bret Baier: “Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers’ higher ups.”

Stahl also told Baier that his crew could have reached Benghazi in time to have played a role in rescuing the victims of the assault, given their alert status and location – but they were never asked to do so.

“You would’ve thought that we would have had a little bit more of an alert posture on 9/11,” Stahl added. “A hurried-up timeline probably would take us [an] hour-and-a-half to get off the ground and three hours and fifteen minutes to get down there. So we could’ve gone down there and gotten them easily.”

What more, Stahl contends that a C 1-30 had been requested a month prior to 9/11 to be on stand-by at the airport, but that request had been denied.

Watch the video – as Major Stahl explains it, you can actually picture these CIA guys looking at each other and going “WTF?” while the Regime was pushing the YouTube video narrative.

Of course, it took nearly two years for anyone to interview any of these guys.

That sham Accountability Review Board, of course, somehow missed them.

 

I can’t believe Hillary Clinton would even think of  running for president with this FUBAR cover-up on her record. What nerve.

As for Obama… #IMPEACH

Fox News: Secret Docs Show Bergdahl Declared Jihad In 2010 (Video)

Via James Rosen of Fox News, relying on intel from “The Eclipse Group” – former CIA operatives.

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a “mujahid,” or warrior for Islam, according to secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account and obtained by Fox News.

The reports indicate that Bergdahl’s relations with his Haqqani captors morphed over time, from periods of hostility, where he was treated very much like a hostage, to periods where, as one source told Fox News, “he became much more of an accepted fellow” than is popularly understood. He even reportedly was allowed to carry a gun at times.

The documents show that Bergdahl at one point escaped his captors for five days and was kept, upon his re-capture, in a metal cage, like an animal. In addition, the reports detail discussions of prisoner swaps and other attempts at a negotiated resolution to the case that appear to have commenced as early as the fall of 2009.

 

The Five discussed the breaking story, this afternoon on Fox.

Obama, meanwhile, made a big show of defending the swap, today, making no apologies, and referring to Berghdahl  as “somebody’s child.” And of course, he characterized the negaive reaction to the swap as political – once again stating: “We have a basic principle: we do not leave anybody wearing the American uniform behind.”

Even though he left his platoon behind and allegedly worked with the enemy against them.

Bergdahl’s platoon mates on the other hand, have been smeared as potential psychopaths by a Regime flunky. 

Claim: Humble Obama Doesn’t Give Himself Enough Credit For All His Foreign Policy Successes (Video)

In the old days, when the Regime tried to do a Jedi Mind trick like this on the American people – the media would let them.

This is not the Single Payer healthcare plan your looking for…

Obama would look straight into the camera, and repeat the lines at least 50,000 times,    “If you like your plan you can keep your plan…” or its variation – “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor…”

It took Politifact until the point Obama’s promise could be proven without a doubt to be a lie, (because millions of people were losing their health care plans) to rate it a “pants on fire” lie.

But the communication sages within the administration are always scheming to find new ways to fool the American people. And they really have their work cut out for them, lately, because on top of all the scandals currently swirling around him – Obama’s being hammered for being a weak and indecisive president who leads from behind. And Obama’s palace guard are finding it much more difficult to play along.

Poor Jen Psaki –  I truly feel sorry for her, here….

She picked the short straw on Thursday and had to face the room full of hard-boiled reporters with this howler.

JEN PSAKI: I would argue the president doesn’t give himself enough credit for what he’s done around the world. And that’s how the secretary feels too. We would not be engaged in comprehensive negotiations with Iran, which is where the program is stalled, and is rolling back, if it were not for the role of the United States, along with the P-5 +1 partners certainly. In Ukraine, we’ve been engaged more or as much as any other country in the world in supporting the elections process, supporting the government, and supporting efforts moving forward. Yes, there’s more work that needs to be done, the point is we need to continue to stay at it.

REPORTER: Is this a potential mission accomplished statement?

PSAKI: Absolutely not.

MATT LEE: You would argue the president doesn’t give himself enough credit, how much credit would you give him?

PSAKI: I would give him more than he has given himself. So would the secretary.

LEE: Like 200 percent credit? For what? Iran negotiations?

PSAKI: I mean…

REPORTER: What specifically are you saying he doesn’t get enough credit for?

PSAKI: For engagement in issues like Iran, what we’ve done on Ukraine. Efforts to dive in and engage in the world.

REPORTER: Russia has still annexed Crimea. Iran, there are ongoing negotiations, but is that the success here that your talking?

PSAKI: We’re talking about engagement in the world and taking on tough issues that present themselves, and the United States continues to play a prominent role doing that.

Now, whatever would possess a State Dept spox to say something so patently absurd? Obama doesn’t give himself credit? He only spiked the football for killing Osama bin Laden about 40,000 times. He doesn’t know how to give a speech without propping himself up as the only adult in the room with all the experts on his side, while denigrating anyone who disagrees with him. The obvious   narcissism of the guy has been duly noted by most of us on the right since early 2008.

Did those words just tumble thoughtlessly out of her mouth? Or did the White House’s crack communications team  come up with yet another awesome Jedi Mind Trick?

Because as  Twitchy notes, Lurch dropped the same talking point on Gwen Ifill , Thursday night on PBS  Newshour.

Via PJ Tatler: 

Coming off a week where President Obama laid out an Afghanistan withdrawal timetable and put forth his foreign policy vision, Secretary of State John Kerry declared Thursday that this administration is “more engaged” with the world “than at any time in American history.”

“I don’t think the president, frankly, takes enough credit for the successes that are on the table right now,” Kerry told PBS. “I mean, if you look at what has happened in Ukraine, the president led an effort to try to keep Europe unified with the United States, to put difficult sanctions on the table. Europe wasn’t thrilled with that. But they came along. That was leadership. And the president succeeded in having an impact ultimately, together with the Europeans, on the choices that face President Putin.”

I have my suspicions as to who is pushing this talking point. She is known to be a “court flatterer” and  “a peerless enabler of Barack Obama’s inflated opinion of himself”

“I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. . . . He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. . . . So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. . . . He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

Seriously. And he’s so extraordinarily modest –  he just doesn’t give himself enough credit for all the good he’s done around the world. By talking,  negotiating, and giving speeches he’s proved that he is a strong leader who is “engaged” and deserves a participation trophy.
