Via Doug Ross’ Larwyn’s Lynx, we see the Quote Of The Day.

A prominent conservative political pundit (George Freaking Will V) was uninvited from speaking at Scripps College, in a program designed to promote conservative views on campus, because of his conservative views.

 

The funniest part? Most of America would not have any idea why the rest of us  find that so funny.

 

It’s even funnier that it’s George Will. I’d bet a dollar he agrees with the Dem leadership more than most Dem voters do.

The spammers are taking over so I’ll post a spam email. No, it’s not from Ugg boots.

 

The bit about how he doesn’t understand America or Americans is a theme I’ve harped on so that makes this especially intelligent.

 

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. That was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.
It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America .
Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.
Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. Or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets “goose bumps” when a band plays “The Star Spangled Banner,” (no he gets goose bumps when he hears the ”Muslim call to prayer” (his words) or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of ” America the Beautiful?” Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday – or someone plays “taps” on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn’t have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America , penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn’t delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn’t singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.
Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn’t really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.
He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America , rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the “Great Uniter”). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions. And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.
Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact
divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of government.
– Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.
– Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.
– Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people – on a daily basis!
Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue.

I haven’t been ‘tubin much lately, so I did my tour and boy is it ugly out there.

There is one funny part, we have Obama, Biden, Chuck, Please Take My Calls, Hagel and J. Effin Kerry on the the job.

Not so much just funny, but funny and endy. Which is better than just endy.

First, some Unexpected Coincidences.

Obama declares war on ISIS. Isis captures a regiment of Iraqi tanks (Abrams?) on their way to Baghdad.

presence in Abu Ghraib would put Baghdad International Airport within artillery range of the militants.

“We know they have captured substantial numbers of 155 mm howitzers,” …“These have a range of about (20 miles) and if they are able to hold territory in Abu Ghraib then the concern they can shell (the airport)…

 

You realize what that means? We will get to see Josh Earnest say that ISIS is not at the Baghdad Airport as we’re watching ISIS tanks roll through the airport on split-screen.  We need the Koch brothers to offer him a few $million to wear a beret when he does that.

The Lebanese give Obama his grades on Syria.  Unlike Americans, they do not grade Obama on a curve.

By bombing the Al-Nusra Front in addition to ISIS, the US may have driven two terrorist organizations that have been at war with each other for almost a year closer together. According to the Guardian’s Martin Chulov, “[m]any al-Nusra units in northern Syria appeared to have reconciled” with ISIS and leaders from both were now holding war-planning meetings to discuss a rapprochement or strategic merger. Whether one formally takes places, with Ayman al-Zawahiri presiding over the marriage or not, seems more an academic question than an operational concern: already 73 Nusra militants have “defected” to ISIS as a result of the air strikes, proving yet again that nothing nullifies jihadi hermeneutics and the narcissism of their tiny differences faster than Tomahawk missiles.

 

I generally don’t trust the Gruaniad, but since they probably have members of various jihadi groups in their newsrooms, I’ll accept their judgement on stuff like that.

Poor bastards, they picked the wrong POTUS to go for freedom.

So what does this say?

Police officers deny claims that they have colluded with those who used violence against the (Pro-Democracy V) demonstrators.

 

When murderous commie thugs deny something, they’re doing it.

I love the headline on this one.

Insight – Chinese troops play symbolic role in Hong Kong drama over democracy

That’s from roto-reuters, who seem to think the threat of actions by the army of murderous commie dictators is symbolic.  They blather on about how China won’t risk the furious frowning of frumious philosopers in EUnuchstan and then note this.

The Chinese military is housed in 19 urban and rural sites inherited after the British folded up the Union Jack on what had been a major military staging post of the British empire and a vital Cold War-era listening post.The bases, dotted strategically across Hong Kong island, Kowloon and the New Territories, include the old British Tamar headquarters building in Admiralty, now next door to the government’s new offices – and the epicentre of the current demonstrations.

The building was recently refurbished, along with other sites, and is now topped with a red neon star. Most of its offices are thought to be occupied, some for the first time.

A large domed surveillance camera sits perched above a corner over one of the main thoroughfares leading to Hong Kong’s glittering Central financial district.

 

Yeah, symbolic.

Related, as per FrnakJ once said, blood is symbolic of blood. I’m sure the pro-democracy protesters are fully aware of that fact.

I have to wonder if the next two stories are related.

Obama offers help to Philippines.

Filipino troops position themselves near a marine amphibious assault vehicle manned by their US counterparts during a mechanized assault exercise as part of the 2014 Amphibious Landing Exercise (PHIBLEX) at the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) in Zambales on Sunday. Around 1,000 Filipino and 3,000 US marines and sailors will join the annual joint military exercise that will last for 12 days.

Philippines don’t want to act ‘provocative’ toward the expansionist, murderous, commie dictators.

The Philippines has put infrastructure projects on hold in territories in the disputed South China Sea in a bid to ease tensions in the region

 

With Obama on your side you know you’re on your own.

Hell, he declared war on ebola and it ended up in America.  At least the Filipinos are paying attention.

This guy shot down a drone and now they’re wondering if they can charge him with something.

Don’t forget, you were skeet-shooting. You skeet-shoot all the time.

 

So as I end up I’m left with this lesson:

Just stop paying attention and hope that when it all blows up, my part of the world won’t blow up as much.
