Dees fired…

leave a comment »

Morris Dees,  the founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center ,  has been fired from the organization.  He claims not to know why he was fired,  and SPLC isn’t saying,  but some friends in the area say it was for sexual and racial improprieties.

Like Thomas Lifson ,  I suspect the huge  pile of money the organization has amassed is somehow heavily involved.   I know blacks who have gone to the group,  believing its name meant something,  and been swiftly shown the door.  It is the unchained dire wolf of the left,  savaging anyone it turns its gaze on.   It has lost several high-profile lawsuits,  including the Family Research Council,  which was attacked by a man admittedly inspired by the SPLC.  SPLC and Morris Dees deserve to be bankrupt.   There is a special corner of hell reserved for con men and those who prey on the well-intentioned elderly.  Dees appears to have honed his skills in college and used them to become a darling of the Left and personally very rich.  I hope he loses everything and lives another 40 years in misery.

Snitty man…

His Oneness has  no patience  with young people who fail to drink in his every word,  no  matter how self-reverential they are.   It truly is a sign of how arrogant and thin-skinned the former president is,  especially since he apparently has no idea how small and pathetic it makes him look.

Canada deserves a face slap…

leave a comment »

Yeah,  it does, because it’s  crimping free  speech there while spending millions lobbying our Congress in an effort to retain its lopsided NAFTA benefits.   In other words it is exercising very free speech here by its spending,  while trying to insure no foreign government interferes in Canadian affairs.   Can it get any more hypocritical?

Of course it is…

leave a comment »

No conservative is surprised to discover that Trump country is far  more tolerant  than progressive enclaves anywhere.  They are supposedly knuckle-draggers,  Bible-thumpers,  white supremacists,   little Hitlers or just hopeless stupid and biased.   But in truth,  Trump supporters are largely regular joes,  ordinary American citizens who treat even awful people with courtesy and respect.   We don’t refuse to serve them food,  and we certainly don’t chase them across the street to protest.   I wonder if we have been too nice for far too long.

If you think back to the Bush/Gore election, Republican staffers dressed in slacks and button-down shirts supposedly inspired terror in Democratic operatives.   Apparently our conservative thoughts are enough to cause extreme fear in liberals.   I’m in favor of providing even more cause for their panic.   Arm yourself with logic,  reason,  and actual facts,  and laugh out loud at them when they revert to emotional thinking and start attacking you personally.    That is a clue that you are winning.

When is public not public?

leave a comment »

The 11th Circuit court generally displays some judicial restraint and common sense,  unlike the lunatics on the 9th Circuit,  but three of the justices appear to have misplaced their tiny little brains by declaring that public streets  and sidewalks are not public spaces sometimes.

Turning off Skynyrd…

leave a comment »

…doesn’t make it go away,  a point David Marcus  makes quite  well when writing of customers’ reactions when a Brooklyn store played the Lynyrd Skynyrd group’s rendition of  “Sweet Home Alabama.”

Progressives have never listened to a large part of America,  and they convinced the Democratic Party that it need not listen either,  because they had ensured that changing demographics,  via legal and illegal immigration and lax or non-existent voter ID requirements meant working class voters no longer mattered.  Sure, you can turn off the voices,  but somewhere they are still speaking,  and it is not just in the Deep South or flyover country that Skynyrd is still playing somewhere.

Interesting hire…

leave a comment »

The Trump campaign has  hired David  Bossie of Citizens United fame,  who has been investigating the Clintons since the 1990’s,  and must have a very large dirt file on all their scandals.   I seem to recall that Hillary has promised to  overturn the Citizens United ruling,  because the only super-PACs she wants are those in her corner.
