WND: America’s Marxist Picnic

Fear the picnic of communism, please? And then, give us your money
Wingnuts • Views: 32,547

Oh sure, you may be jaded and tired of hearing about the Communist plot to pollute our precious bodily fluids, but are you ready for the MIND-BENDING HORROR of America’s Marxist Picnic?

And on Father’s Day, no less? The evil. The sheer evil.

I could go on and on. These oft-cited facts merely scratch the surface of Obama’s long-term radicalism. But the point in juxtaposing my father’s story and Obama’s is as inescapable as it is troubling:

My dad, a true American who was immeasurably grateful and loyal to his adopted country, could have lost everything because his mother went to a church picnic and picked up a Marxist rag.

That was then. But now, sitting in the White House is a man who has spent most of his entire life immersed in Marxist ideology, influences, mentors and benefactors. He has proven, as president, that he is still fully committed to dragging America – kicking and screaming if necessary (recall the outrageous and illegal way Obamacare was passed) – into a new era of unprecedented, government-coerced redistribution of wealth and power. To be precise: Marxism.

It would be folly, of course, to imagine that Obama just magically appeared out of thin air to lead a nation of liberty-loving, responsible, moral, right-thinking grownups leftward. America has been moving in this sad direction for decades. No, not under the “Marxist” label, or any of those other nasty words of yesteryear, like “socialism” or “communism” or “collectivism.” They’ve all been carefully replaced by warm-and-cuddly terms like “fairness,” “economic justice,” “redistribution,” “progressivism” and – as an off-script Obama famously told Joe the Plumber – “spread[ing] the wealth around.”

The spirit of socialism has taken root and flowered spectacularly in America, especially in all of our elite, idea-generating institutions like education, the news and entertainment media, and, of course, government. The original American spirit – stout, risk-taking, God-fearing, responsible, adult – has progressively been displaced by the spirit of dependency and helplessness, of perpetual grievance and victimization, and most of all, of envy and resentment. All of which cries out for ever bigger government.

So the question is: Will we Americans re-embrace the values that made ours the greatest nation in history, or will we continue on our current path toward the godless mirage of “redistributive change” – and the poverty and loss of liberty that always follow?

In any event, for the present I can at least derive some solace from remembering that I was raised by parents and grandparents who appreciated their adopted country and all the blessings the Creator freely bestowed upon it – and weren’t angrily obsessed with “transforming” it into a socialist paradise. For that I am truly grateful.

May those blessings continue. May this nation repent of its sins. And may we come to our senses before it’s too late.

Happy 100th birthday, Dad. God bless you.

#TwitterGulag: The Hypocrisy of the Persecuted Wingnut

Breitbart.com’s Lee Stranahan and Mandy Nagy urge wingnuts to use ‘block and report’

The right wing persecution fantasy known as #TwitterGulag is still raging today, as the conspiracy theories and suspected masterminds keep multiplying and getting more ridiculous. They’ve now started adding a slash to any suspected mastermind’s Twitter username, to avoid what they think is the DREADED REPLY TRAP that keeps getting their accounts suspended.

For example:

But today, we also find breitbart.com’s Mandy Nagy and Lee Stranahan urging conservatives to do exactly what they’ve been whining and crying about for months: use Twitter’s “block and report as spam” feature to silence people who disagree with them.

These are the same people who’ve been trying to cast me as the super-villain in a plot to oppress conservatives, because I advised — and will continue to advise — my friends and followers to block and report the psycho stalkers from the website exposed in this post. Smell that? It’s the ripe stench of hypocrisy.

But Lee Stranahan perfectly described what these obsessive nuts have been doing on Twitter for months, harassing me, my followers, and everyone with whom I communicate, with “unwanted, bizarre tweets,” and I’d like to thank him for supporting my effort to fight against this kind of stalking behavior with the tools Twitter created for that purpose.

This wingnut double standard has been noted by others as well:

Romney: Being Vague About My Plans Helps Me Get Elected

Wouldn’t want the voters to have too much information, would we?
Politics • Views: 35,205

In an interview with the Weekly Standard, Mitt Romney admits he’s being deliberately vague about his plans for sweeping cuts to federal programs, because if he gets specific he would lose the election.

One of the things I found in a short campaign against Ted Kennedy was that when I said, for instance, that I wanted to eliminate the Department of Education, that was used to suggest I don’t care about education,” Romney recalled. “So I think it’s important for me to point out that I anticipate that there will be departments and agencies that will either be eliminated or combined with other agencies. So for instance, I anticipate that housing vouchers will be turned over to the states rather than be administered at the federal level, and so at this point I think of the programs to be eliminated or to be returned to the states, and we’ll see what consolidation opportunities exist as a result of those program eliminations. So will there be some that get eliminated or combined? The answer is yes, but I’m not going to give you a list right now.

Well, that certainly clarifies something — not Romney’s plans, but his motivation for hiding them.

UPDATE at 6/17/12 9:57:49 am

Romney is also being deliberately vague about his immigration policies: Romney Dodges Immigration Questions.

Mitt Romney refuses to say whether he’d repeal the Obama administration’s decision to stop deporting certain undocumented immigrants.

In an interview with Bob Schieffer aired Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” the presumptive Republican presidential nominee five different times declined to answer whether he would conduct the same policy President Barack Obama on Friday announced his Department of Homeland Security will now pursue.

Instead of answering the question posed, Romney called for a permanent solution.
