Salon and Vice Play Role as PC Enforcement Mouthpieces – Attack NPI Conference

Well, NPI had their conference, and the predictable PC point and sputter snark fests have appeared. These clownish thought policers have no originality. You could write these type of pieces before the event sight unseen. I’m certainly not shocked that Salon engages in this sort of Cultural Marxist rightthink enforcement masquerading as journalism, but I’m a little surprised by Vice. I thought I detected a bit of political incorrectness at Vice, or at least enough irreverence that they would realize how trite and cliched PC enforcement point and sputter pieces are. Has Vice forgotten that it was co-founded by Gavin McInnes who now writes for TakiMag. What’s next? Are they going to do a hit piece on their former co-founder?

Notice that the guy who wrote the hit piece for Vice, C.J. Ciaramella, normally writes at the Washington Free Beacon, which is the site that originally went on a wrongthink witch hunt  against Jack Hunter.

Of course the authors, C.J and Lauren Fox, are both white. Why are they and those like them such self-loathers?

Stereotypes: Just the Majority

Political Correctness demands society treat individuals as identical. When differences emerge, racism or monetary privilege is blamed.

In the following video, a Jew named DJ Lubel mocks Political Correctness, singing that stereotypes tend to apply to the majority. Those stereotypes derived from experience tend to have some basis in reality, as opposed to stereotypes manufactured by the mass media which can be complete propaganda.

Obama wants Marines to wear ‘girly’ hats

The feminization of society is about to take a bold leap forward. From the New York Post:

Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a “unisex” look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps – known as “covers” — with a new version that some have derided as so “girly” that they would make the French blush.

“We don’t even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing to spend $8 million on covers that look like women’s hats!” one senior Marine source fumed to The Post. “The Marines deserve better. It makes them look ridiculous.”

The thin new covers have a feminine line that some officials think would make them look just as good on female marines as on males — in keeping with the Obama directive.

In conjunction with this change in uniforms, the Marine Corps Hymn has been updated as well to reflect the Corps’s new image. Here’s an exclusive first look:


From the power suits of Yves Saint Laurent
To the flair of Armani
We will rock these girly uniforms
On the runways and at sea

First to fit our feet in pink footwear
And wear dress blues like a queen
We’re the first branch to go unisex
We’re Obama’s New Marines!

Former The American Conservative Editor Now Writing PC Hit Pieces at the Daily Caller

Really Jordan? So is that what TAC is now? A stepping stone so that you can move on to being a Cultural Marxist thought enforcer at the Dailly Caller? What? Was Jamie Kirchick not available?

And notice he is now J. Arthur Bloom, rather than Jordan Bloom. Trying to get that TAC stink off you Jordy? How do people like him sleep? How do they look at themselves in the mirror in the morning? You don’t have to agree with everything Spencer says or NPI supports or whatever. Make those honest differences known? But to hire yourself out to write PC point and sputter hits pieces is beyond pathetic. Are those Beltway cocktail parties really that much fun Jordan?

I was going to title this post something like “Daily Caller Does Another PC Hit Piece on Richard Spencer,” but that’s old hat. This is really the much more interesting angle.

Is Megyn Kelly the New Designated Moderate at FOX News?

I don’t watch a lot of FOX News except when it is on in the lounge at work, because I don’t watch a lot of news. When I watch news I want to argue with the TV and my blood pressure goes through the roof so I generally avoid it and get my news from the internet. But when I do watch news, I generally watch FOX. (Did I just sound like the Dos Equis guy?) But this is a dynamic I hadn’t picked up on yet - the new primetime darling, Megyn Kelly, as the designated moderate.

The article is by Joe the Plumber who Kelly called a racist for quoting a satirical article written by a conservative black guy. So Kelly was attempting to score PC brownie points but apparently hadn’t read the whole article she was supposedly offended by. Not a swift move there Megyn.

Megyn Kelly so wants to be the moderate in that lineup that she couldn’t even get to the end of the first page of a post on my website before she rushed on the air to scream RACISM!!

Like a little spoiled liberal, with no research into the matter, no call to the author, no knowledge of who the author even is and no conservative credentials to be making such claims in the first place, Ms. Kelly is getting her centrist slot off to a rousing start and should be receiving invites to all the right upper east-side mainstream media parties soon.

“Oh, Megyn, what’s it like working over there with THOSE people?…”

If you’re wondering what I’m ranting about, I posted an article by a talented writer named Kevin Jackson, who had written a satirical piece about race and the presidency, entitled; “America Needs a White Republican President”.

That’s right Megyn, you bashed an African-American! Or as Kevin calls himself: “American.”

Leave the Redskins’ Name Alone

I’m a Falcon’s fan, but when I lived near DC courtesy of the USAF, it was all Redskins talk all the time, so I started following them somewhat and still root for them in general when they aren’t playing the Falcons.

Now the PC Brigade is out in force trying to get the Redskins to change their name. Even Barack Obama has chimed in. So far, the Redskins’ owner, Daniel Snyder, has bravely resisted the baying forces of Political Correctness citing, appropriately, tradition. But there may be some cracks forming in the dike. The very PR sensitive NFL is said to support a change.

First of all, Redskins is only offensive if you want it to be. A team would chose the name Redskins and the image of an American Indian brave because the Indians are largely viewed as brave, rugged, and capable fighters. No one is naming their team the Washington French. (Sorry for the gratuitous swipe at the French, which is unwarranted, but it is the only example I could think of.) Not all American Indians take offense to the name and logo, but the ones that do should turn it around as a positive. “Darn right we’re a tough people!”

If the Redskins go, who’s next? The Florida State Seminoles, named after a particular tribe? The Atlanta Braves, named after the Indian warrior class? The Kansas City Chiefs? The Cleveland Indians? Or are only the Redskins unacceptable because it is a term that was once sometimes used as a term of derision. 

But the main reason that the name change should be resisted is because PC should be default resisted as a matter of principle. (With some nuance depending on what is meant by PC. We should not support rudeness or crudeness.) This nonsense has got to stop somewhere. Each victory for the other side is one more victory for them and one more defeat for common sense. If Redskins was OK in 1932, why is it suddenly not OK now? Yes, sensibilities change, but there is no broad outcry to change the name. The name change is being pushed by grievance groups who sense they can take advantage of the new oppressively PC atmosphere, and the PC rightthinkers (I’m talking to you Bob Costas.) who automatically go along with them.

Aww … Machete Kills Only Made 3.8 Mil its Opening Weekend

I’m so disappointed that Kill Gringos II … err … I mean Machete Kills tanked at the box office. Not!

Director Robert Rodriguez had a big bomb on his hands this weekend with Machete Kills, which flopped in 4th place with a paltry estimated $3.8 million debut. Machete Kills opened up on 2,500 screens and scored one of the worst openings ever for such a wide release, and was also one of the worst debuts of 2013.

Machete Kills grossed roughly 1/4 of what the first Machete opened with, and this sequel had the added star power of Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson, Lady Gaga, and Sofia Vergara. Marketing alone for the film is reportedly in the $20 million range.

Attention Robert Rodriguez and Hollywood: a lot of the people who go to see movies in this country are white, and perhaps, just perhaps, they don’t like seeing movies that portray them as evil thought criminals in need of killing.

Salon Does PC Hit Piece on Richard Spencer

Richard Spencer has hit the big time. Salon just published a hit piece on him called “The Hatemonger Next Door.”

Is it really asking too much that if a journalist accuses someone of hate in an article that the article actually attempt to support the allegation of hate? What she proved in the article is that she thinks Richard Spencer is a politically incorrect wrongthinker and he offended her oh so rightthinking sensibilities  But what the author believes to be politically incorrect wrongthink does not equal hate, and the use of the word hate is rank demagoguery.

FTR, I do not support the idea of selective breeding or forced steralization because I don’t think steralization, much less forced, is consistent with Christianity. But I don’t call Richard a hater because I disagree with him.

“American Exceptionalism” = Yankee Supremacy

In a recent open letter to the American people, Russian president Vladimir Putin assured us he likes and respects us, but asked us to realize we’re embarrassing ourselves and doing a lot of harm with our delusion of “American Exceptionalism.” Both the mainstream American left and right rushed to prop up our most beloved myth against this iconoclastic Cossack.

What’s interesting is that both wings of accepted American thought agree on what “exceptionalism” means–and more significantly, that both, though supposedly rivals, are actually in lockstep on all other major issues as a result.

For example, liberal columnist Dana Milbank shot back at President Putin with this bristling retort:

When we say we are exceptional, what we really are saying is we are different. With few exceptions, we are all strangers to our land; our families came from all corners of the world and brought all of its colors, religions and languages. We believe this mixing, together with our free society, has produced generations of creative energy and ingenuity, from the Declaration of Independence to Facebook, from Thomas Jefferson to Miley Cyrus. There is no other country quite like that.

Americans aren’t better than others, but our American experience is unique — exceptional — and it has created the world’s most powerful economy and military, which, more often than not, has been used for good in the world.

Miley Cyrus? Really? My pride floweth over.

And former South Carolina senator Jim DeMint, now president of The Heritage Foundation, also defended “exceptionalism” by invoking the image of America as the Multi-Culti Empire that roams the globe doing good:

We are, in other words, not a nation based on ethnicity, but on beliefs, and not coincidentally, that is why we attract people of all ethnicities and they become proud Americans…. When we have used our power, however, we have done it for good.”

Both echoed what Madeleine Albright said as secretary of state:

It is the threat of the use of force [against Iraq] and our line-up there that is going to put force behind the diplomacy. But if we have to use force, it is because we are America; we are the indispensable nation. We stand tall and we see further than other countries into the future, and we see the danger here to all of us.

That self-image still inspires the Obama regime’s global aggression:

In their more honest moments, White House officials concede they got here the messiest way possible — with a mix of luck in the case of Syria, years of sanctions on Iran and then some unpredicted chess moves executed by three players Mr. Obama deeply distrusts: President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, and Iran’s erratic mullahs. But, the officials say, these are the long-delayed fruits of the administration’s selective use of coercion in a part of the world where that is understood.

“The common thread is that you don’t achieve diplomatic progress in the Middle East without significant pressure,” Benjamin J. Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser, said Thursday. “In Syria, it was the serious threat of a military strike; in Iran it was a sanctions regime built up over five years.”

If your identity is that of a polyglot hegemon endowed with greater wisdom than the rest of the world, how can you NOT support open borders? Or the invasion of Iraq? Or Iran? Or Syria?

First of all, the US was NOT founded as a unique blend of whatever ethnic group decided to elbow its way in; it was founded as an outpost of Western civilization.

More important, the notion that the American people have always been committed to a never-ending global war to impose democracy and equality is a pure lie, and a fairly recent one at that. Previous “Wars of Liberation,” including Lincoln’s invasion of the South, the Spanish-American War, Vietnam, and Iraq, later turned out to be based on massive propaganda and misinformation.

The core idea expressed in “American Exceptionalism” is that the role of America’s elite is to serve as the global mind bringing reason and order to a chaotic, degenerate world. That is Gnosticism, an anti-Christian concept that explicitly glorifies abstract knowledge while scorning the physical. I argued here that Northern thought degenerated from its Puritan roots into militant Gnosticism, while Southerners upheld and lived by a balance between the spiritual and the physical.

Author John C. Wright said this of the Gnostic foundations of today’s statists and their leftist enablers:

In sum, they are idolaters who substitute the worship of Caesar for the worship of Christ; they are Gnostics in the posture of eternal rebellion both against God in Heaven and civil society on Earth. They are chameleons who adopt any ideals or values or party lines needed for so long as needed to destroy them, including Pragmatism, including Worldliness. They are Politically Correct and factually incorrect.

They seek to destroy civilized institutions here on Earth and drag Utopia down from heaven to replace them, indifferent, or even glorying, in the bloodshed required.

To avoid confusion, let us call them Ideologues. They are utterly unworldly, rejecting the pragmatism of the Worldly Man as cold and loveless and unspiritual.

The Ideologues are as nearly a pure evil as mankind has ever produced or can imagine, but please note that their motives are the highest and noblest imaginable: they seek things of the spirit, peace on earth, food for the poor, dignity given to all men, and all such things which are the only things, the holy things, that can electrify dull mankind and stir him to take up the banner and trumpet and shining lance of high and holy crusade.

Ever wonder why leftists see “education” as the cure to all ills? Or why they fancy themselves superior to those they see as living in the darkness of tradition and irrationality? Their contempt for the physical explains their hatred of heritage and tradition–and of life itself. But as John C. Wright pointed out, there’s a terrible price to pay for the spreading of their concept of the good. When Madeleine Albright proclaimed the death of a half-million Iraqi children as “worth it,” she was expressing what all Gnostics believe.

By their fruits ye shall know them.

Anti-Racist Tim Wise Accused of … You Guessed it … Racism

I know some here aren’t crazy about Top Conservative News, but this is too rich to pass up.

White hater Tim Wise is in hot water for … wait for it … wait for it … alleged racism. Ha ha. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Here is the article that TCN links to. Read the anti-Wise tweets if you can stomach them. If they don’t make you weep for the future of this country, nothing will.

These White haters (often self-loathers) have their own language. If you have ever seriously uttered the words “cis male” (look it up) or “white privilege” then you should be permanently banned from polite company and nothing you say should be taken seriously again.

BTW, Tim Wise has apologized like the wuss he is.

I won’t try and defend the tone of most of my remarks. It was inappropriate. Period.

I fell into the same kind of vitriolic and sometimes personal attack mode that had gotten me angry in the first place. I shouldn’t have. I will strive to do better.

He showed a tiny flash of manhood by calling out his hecklers and now he must retreat back into eunuch status lest the anti-White peanut gallery hound him out of his profitable gig. You can’t make this crap up.

How can we stop you from looking behind the curtain?

Unpatriotic Americans are steaming over continuing revelations about the National Security Agency’s domestic spying. Thanks to that trouble maker Edward Snowden, Americans are now aware of what their government is up to, and what good can come of that? Everyone knows we’re all happier when our handlers and protectors can do what has to be done without having to worry about the common folk finding out.

Here’s the latest: Seems many of those “accidental” peeks at Americans’ private communications weren’t all that accidental. As the Guardian reports:

US intelligence analysts have deliberately broken rules designed to prevent them from spying on Americans, according to an admission by the National Security Agency that undermines fresh insistences from Barack Obama on Friday that all breaches were inadvertent.

A report by the NSA’s inspector general is understood to have uncovered a number of examples of analysts choosing to ignore so-called “minimisation procedures” aimed at protecting privacy, according to officials speaking to Bloomberg.

Defenders of the welfare/warfare national security state realize their work is cut out for them. Fortunately, they work within a political system where the vast majority of citizens accept the regime’s notion of what constitutes acceptable political thought. Politically, you can be anything you want, as long as it’s Democrat or Republican.

Or, as I like to phrase it, housebroken liberal or housebroken conservative.

So, as these embarrassing revelations heat up the blogosphere, regime apologists are focusing on their base, and do so through the most transparent flattery. Housebroken liberals fancy themselves morally superior because they are so darn tolerant. Therefore, their designated handlers portray the whistle blowers as “racist.” And no one beats the “racism” drum like Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs. Check out the Lizard King’s latest counter-attack on critics of government spying: The Convergence of Glenn Greenwald and Rand Paul’s “Southern Avenger.”

Liberals have a gut-deep hatred of anything Southern, so left-leaning defenders of the DC Empire equate critics of government spying with “racist Southerners.”

On the other hand, housebroken conservatives imagine they’re morally superior because of their patriotism and traditional morality. So DC’s right-leaning apologists slam whistle blowers as traitors. And to keep the heartland distracted, The Other McCain has been uploading multiple posts on this story of under-age lesbians acting badly. Never mind the NSA — Look! Lesbians!

Con men know they must customize their acts by distracting their targets with different ruses. It all depends on the target audience.

Paul Gottfried Chronicles the Decline of Elizabethtown College

Paul Gottfried chronicles how obsessive multiculturalism and political correctness has ruined Elizabethtown College where he taught, and this all happened between 1989 and his retirement in 2011. While this is about Elizabethtown College specifically, it is a microcosm of what has happened to higher education in this country in general.

Another sad part of this story is that E-Town College is supposedly religiously affiliated with the Church of the Brethren. How have all these Christian denominations let colleges they supposedly sponsor run amok with anti-Christian political correctness? Its not only a shame, its a sin.

Political Correctness Scold who Whined About League of the South Connection is a Professor at the Conservative Christian Grove City College

Warren Throckmorton, the blogger who first “exposed” (whined about) the League of the South connection to the conference we reported on below, is surprisingly a Professor at the conservative Christian Grove City College. Grove City has long been a favorite among conservatives because it, like Hillsdale College, does not accept federal financial aid.

I’m sure people will say that Professor Throckmorton has academic freedom, and that’s fine. I’m not suggesting that Grove City College should fire him or silence him. But political correctness is the mortal enemy of both conservatism and Christianity. I find it odd that this is where this guy teaches instead of Berkley or Harvard or somewhere else you would more expect to see such lefty politically correct moral posturing. I just wonder what the chances are that we’ll get a statement from Grove City distancing themselves from Professor Throckmorton’s left-wing empowering hobby of doing the $PLC’s dirty work for them. Lehigh University issued a statement disassociating themselves from the work of Intelligent Design advocate Michael Behe. California State University, Long Beach officially distanced itself from Kevin McDonald. I don’t think it is asking too much to suggest that Grove City should similarly distance itself from someone who propagates the openly anti-conservative and anti-Christian dogma of political correctness.

Family Research Council’s Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin Wimps Out and Withdraws from Conference Due to League of the South Connection

You would think that achieving the rank of Lt. Gen. would indicate that someone has courage and a willingness to engage the enemy, but apparently not because “Lt. Gen.” Jerry Boykin has turned tail and run like a scared little girl. “Lt. Gen.” Boykin was supposed to address this conference but backed out because Pastor David Whitney, the Chaplain of the Maryland League of the South, was scheduled to speak based on his role with the Institute on the Constitution. This is particularly pathetic because the $PLC has absurdly labeled the FRC as a hate group because they hold the traditional Christian position on homosexuality. “Gen.” Boykin should be fighting the $PLC and their ilk, not caving to them and backing out like a spineless jellyfish.

Jason Richwine Comes Out Swinging

Attention Jack Hunter: this is how you respond to an attack by the PC Goosesteppers. You defend your position and you don’t back down. This Richwine rebuttal appeared today at Politico.

For too many people confronted with IQ issues, emotion trumps reason. Some are even angry that I never apologized for my work. I find that sentiment baffling. Apologize for stating empirical facts relevant to public policy? I could never be so craven. And apologize to whom — people who don’t like those facts? The demands for an apology illustrate the emotionalism that often governs our political discourse.

And don’t apologize when you have nothing to apologize for.

The Constitution Party Disses The American Conservative

I don’t usually post blatant fund raising appeals, but this was too rich to pass up. Even the Constitution Party is dissing TAC now. Note the third bullet point.

Dear Friend of the Constitution Party:

The more things change the more they stay the same. That’s so very true in the political arena. Here are some recent news items that underscore my point:

• An Associated Press headline: “Britain’s governing Conservatives have hired Jim Messina, President Obama’s former campaign manager, to advise them ahead of the 2015 general election.” The Constitution Party has long said that the elites can cross party and ideological lines at will.

• The neo-con magazine, National Review, reports that, “Senate Republicans and Democrats Agree on Syria: Red Line Has Been Crossed.” The article backs the idea of US intervention in yet another Middle East hotspot—in this case it means siding with “rebels” who have the full, open support of Al-Qadea. The Constitution Party knows you can’t impose “democracy” at the point of a gun.

• Former GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman wrote an editorial in The American Conservative (of all places) stating that, “civil unions” and marriage “equality” were a “conservative cause” and should be supported in the name of “civil equality.” Even the GOP has joined the “gay rights” movement—the Constitution Party supports the traditional concept of marriage as understood by the Founding Founders.

George Wallace used to say, there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Republicans and Democrats. Today, the distinction between “Conservative” and “Liberal” will get you change for a nickel.

That’s why the Constitution Party is the only party to live up to its name. Our pledge is to support the right to life—from conception to natural death. We believe that US borders must be safe, that the security of American workers be the highest priority in foreign trade policies, and that Washington power brokers must not risk national sovereignty via entangling alliances.

I’m reminding you of what the Constitution Party stands for, what we fight for every day, because … it’s August.

You see, the hot summer months mean supporters are on family vacations. Perhaps home projects take their attention away from politics. In any case, funding for ongoing Constitution party activities is down. I have no other way to say that the Constitution party needs your help.

Please consider a generous donation of $50 or even $25—and please let me hear from you right away.

It’s urgent that we build a new website, print literature, and plan for ballot access drives. That work cannot wait until the slow summer months go by. Please invest what you can, $20 or $200, so we may stay in the fight.

If you believe that our fellow citizens need to hear the patriotic alternative to the establishment duopoly, then send a gift today. A $100 donation will go a long way this month. If we could count on active patriots to pitch in $25 it will help so much. Your support in August, in the next few days, will make a difference.

“Conservative” and “Liberal” labels are a fraud. Only “Constitutionalists” offer America real solutions … help us make that known.

Sincerely,

Frank Fluckiger
National Chairman

Freshman Forming White Student Union at Georgia State University

Patrick Sharp, a freshman at Georgia State University in Atlanta, is forming an informal White Student Union. Interestingly, he says he was inspired by Matthew Heimbach of Towson University White Student Union fame. The Atlanta Journal Constitution has the story:

Sharp said he was inspired to start the union after viewing videos and interviews with Matthew Heimbach, who started a White Student Union at Towson University in Maryland.

The ADL has already issued a condemnation.

Preening her politically correct plumage

Grab your barf-bag before reading this puff piece on Jess George, the white jefa of Charlotte’s Latin American Coalition:

She’s not Latino, an immigrant, or even a minority. She’s not fluent in Spanish, either. …

Since taking over the Latin American Coalition four years ago, she has steadily increased its visibility with a series of rallies, marches and publicity stunts. … It’s an unusual approach that has drawn national attention. The country’s largest Hispanic civil rights organization, the National Council of La Raza, called the coalition an “inspiration” for other immigrant advocates.

I can remember when “civil rights” meant favoring voting rights for blacks who were US citizens. But we’ve evolved way past that. These days, “civil rights” means “the right of foreigners to invade and colonize another country.” I guess that’s progress.

But there are sometimes speed bumps on the road to progress. George’s ascent to the position of the jefa of the Latin American Coalition was resented by Latinos who couldn’t figure out why this gringa was telling them what to do:

“I’ve had other Latino leaders in Charlotte tell me: ‘Jess, it’s nice that you are doing this for the community. But when is a real leader going to show up?’?” says George.

“At first, it was really hard to hear. I’m the kind of person who likes to be told how I can do things better. But when you point to me and say, ‘You’re white,’ I can’t change that.”

Former coalition board chairwoman Olma Echeverri admits that there was backlash when George was named executive director. Prior to that, George spent five years as an associate director at the coalition.

“I supported her taking over, but I was approached by people asking why I didn’t find another candidate who was Latino,” said Echeverri, now chairwoman of the Hispanic-American Democrats of North Carolina.

Nevertheless, despite such difficulties, this New York transplant continues to stand up “for a class of people she feels is being bullied by the system.”

How noble. And how courageous. After all, other than the federal government, the media, academia, and big business, NO ONE is helping illegal aliens in this country.

The Village Voice Goes After Paul Gottfried and the H. L. Mencken Club…

… for being, you guessed it, an extremist hate group.

It would be nice if the PC Rightthink Enforcers would actually present evidence of hate when they make casual allegations that some entity is a “hate group.”

Yet [SPLC hack Mark] Potok argues that even aging, somewhat addled racists can present a danger. “We’re no longer going to be a country dominated by Protestant white people. At this point it’s too late. One of my own worries is that people like this will be driven to the very extreme when they realize once and for all that there’s no way they can win.”

Notice again the Cultural Marxist double standard. Potok gets to celebrate white demographic dissolution, but if the Mencken Club members bemoan the same thing they’re haters. The only hate in evidence in this article is Potok’s hate for white people as he does a happy dance on their demographic grave.

The article also mentions Richard Spencer and Alternative Right.

Here is Alternative Right’s take on the article.
