Another Campus Hoax: American Fascist Awareness Week

FrontPage Magazine reported today on some fliers that are making the rounds on at least ten campuses, advertising a counter-protest to the upcoming Islamofascist Awareness Week.

Although several far lefty/commie groups are listed at the bottom of the flier as the organizers of the event, it appears to be a near perfect spoof of Adam Kokesh’s ‘hilarious’ satirical flier from last week.

Here’s the text of this latest flier (Note the date of the ‘protest’):

Who Hates Americans? We Do.

Your typical American is:

Ø A racist. A sexist. A homophobe.

Ø An Islamo-phobe.

Ø Is willing to invade other countries for oil and pleasure.

Ø Is easily manipulated by Rush Limbaugh and Jews.

Ø Is the cause of global warming.

My guess is that it’s the work of some wily conservatives who are testing the tolerance levels of Campus administrators who thus far have taken no disciplinary action against the liberal hoaxsters.

Not that hundreds of lefty weirdos won’t try to show up, anyway.

Gore Derangement Syndrome???

Oh brother.

Paul Krugman sees the fact that many conservatives believe that there were more worthy candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize, and are engaging in a certain amount of snark about Gore’s win, as signs of Gore Derangement Syndrome.

If heavy sighs, and eye rolling are a signs of derangement, then I guess we’re all guilty.

Gore included.

But otherwise, color me bemused.

Gore’s ‘moment’ won’t last forever. Time will prove that his prognostications were overwrought, and 10 years down the road, liberals will have invented some other bugaboo that we all have to get hysterical about. You just watch and shake your head.

Yet, Krugman wonders what it is about Mr. Gore “that drives right-wingers insane”?

Partly it’s a reaction to what happened in 2000, when the American people chose Mr. Gore but his opponent somehow ended up in the White House. Both the personality cult the right tried to build around President Bush and the often hysterical denigration of Mr. Gore were, I believe, largely motivated by the desire to expunge the stain of illegitimacy from the Bush administration. (emphasis mine).

I hate to burst Krugman’s bubble, but that paragraph right there is as sure a sign of BDS as I’ve seen in print. It’s the actual source of BDS. The “root cause”, as they say. This is projection as I’ve never seen it before.

Do we have to revisit the 2000 election after all this time, Krugman? Do we really?

Gore won (barely) the popular vote, 50,999,897 to 50,456,002.

Bush won the electoral vote 271 to 266.

The electoral votes decided the election. That’s how it works.

The fact that so many Democrats still can’t get over this is just sad, at this point, and a sure sign of Bush Derangement Syndrome.

Pathetic, really.

Jules Crittenden, Michelle Malkin, and Gateway Pundit have more about this supposed “Gore Derangement Syndrome”.
