Thank goodness nothing like East Berlin, or Hungary, or Prague could ever happen here.

Right, Lee?

So do your homework.

Now, while it’s easily and quietly done.

H/t to Insty for this link, which, while a trifle mild, contains some useful propagandizing advice.

Especially when combined with more…pointed messages.


>Barnhardt: The Canada Free Press Interview


Read it here.

Money quote, on government officials in general and the Mighty Kenyan’s crew in particular:

“…These are not intelligent people. They are opportunistic, ambitious sociopaths that are simultaneously dumber than a box of hair…”

Yet they have the instruments of state power and an apparently-consenting populace on which to inflict their economic and social revenge fantasies.

Do you understand yet?

>AP: Sultan Knish’s "Muslim Inquisition"


Read the SK piece, then AP’s riff on same.

Then review this comments-based discussion of “khilafah, or a united, single and central muslim government”.

Then recall how the US military in currently engaged in three overt wars in support of Islamic regimes and/or “revolutions”.

Finally, ask yourself what this government would not do if the House of Saud snapped its fingers, using its petroleum and dollar reserves as leverage.

Do you understand yet?

Just remember Sultan Knish’s mastersnark:

You can’t spell Socialism without Islam.

>Reed: Bad Time In Baltimore


Read Fred Reed’s latest.

And remember this caveat from the DumpDC team:

(Editor’s Note: Fred is spot on in his analysis here, but does not hint at how bad it could get and how quickly. In most of the “graveyard cities” he lists…as well as most cities above 50,000 in population in America…or any city where you find a Martin Luther King Boulevard…the city core population is not middle class black families. When the permanent underclass gets hungry and can’t buy gas for their rides, they will fan out into the neighborhoods closeby and keep fanning out in raiding parties. This can begin within the first couple days after the dollar collapses. Remember the video footage of New Orleans after Katrina.

And don’t kid yourself that your non-black neighbors will be more virtuous. You should start now asking yourself whether or not you’ll use deadly force to protect your property and your loved ones. That could mean pulling the trigger on a 14-year-old breaking into your house or car-jacking you. You’re going to have to make some life-changing decisions about who you will help and who you turn away. If you have rations to survive for 6 months and you take in two more, now your rations will only last two months. )

Once again: it’s not about race.

But be realistic:

When the President of the United States embraces a known race-baiter as his Attorney General and another as a major 2012 campaign advisor, race is already in the mix.

Got text today from Alvie at the Cliffs; all well there but no power.

In-perimeter ATL was spared.

Many other places in Alabama and Georgia were not.

Do what you can, please.

>Bovard: Misdefining Liberty


From Jim Bovard:

The definitions of liberty devised in ivory towers and elsewhere have a profound impact on political and judicial thinking. Regardless of how wrongheaded some concepts of liberty prevalent early last century may now appear, America’s legal structure is now based on those ideas. And that legal structure continues binding today’s citizens to the intellectual follies of previous generations of thinkers and reformers.

The Founding Fathers’ concept of liberty was forged by decades of abuses by British colonial rulers. “The Restraint of Government is the True Liberty and Freedom of the People” was a common American saying in the 18th century. Historian Forrest McDonald wrote that “political discourse [in Revolutionary-era America] was an ongoing public forum on the meaning of Liberty.”

The Founding Fathers’ concepts of freedom fit into the classical British tradition. In 1721, John Trenchard and Thomas Gordon defined liberty as “the power which every man has over his own actions, and his right to enjoy the fruit of his labor, art, and industry, as far as by it he hurts not the society, or any members of it, by taking from any member, or by hindering him from enjoying what he himself enjoys.” Adam Smith, in his Wealth of Nations, advocated a system of liberty whereby “every man, as long as he does not violate the laws of justice, is left perfectly free to pursue his own interest in his own way.”

However, changing political circumstances and shifting intellectual tides would eventually help to obscure American thinking…

How clear is your definition of liberty?

>Sultan Knish: Freedom Of Speech On The Run


Gun rights and free speech are brother and sister in the hierarchy of fundamental human rights.

Give the Bad People credit: they understand that fact, and are doing their damnedest – both here and elsewhere in the West – to restrict, constrict, and punish anyone who dares to question the collective received wisdom of the elites.

Sultan Knish provides a detailed discussion that’s worth your time, which opens:

Freedom of speech is governed by legal restrictions and public mores. And what most of us have discovered is that a multicultural society means more ‘mores’ and more people to offend. That has taken us from one general set of social speech codes that governed such things as obscenity and public abuse, to a thousand fiefdoms of speech in which every group strives to impose its own speech codes in public forums. The Constitution still protects some forms of political speech for now, but it is a weak and fitful defense in a society where it is not the content of speech that matters, but who is offended by it.

In Postmodern America, censorship has become one form of political clout. The ability to suppress a word, is bona fide power. Municipalities, corporations and public figures are constantly pressured to neuter their vocabulary. The groups that do the pressuring count coup for each successful act of linguistic castration. This battlefield of the dictionary leads to a colonization of grammar. The group that can force a word substitution claims credit for controlling how people think. And there is a certain amount of truth to that, but not a great deal of it. Neutering language only spreads euphemisms. The more we try to stamp out a meaning, the more it slithers into new words, subverting the meanings of even words specifically constructed to be inoffensive.

The Bill of Rights tried to protect freedom of speech from the government, and accordingly today it is the government that directly threatens freedom of speech the least. Indirectly is another matter. The government cannot clap you in irons for saying the wrong thing, unless you’re standing in an airport, but it can mandate that companies fire you for saying the wrong thing, or be held accountable for failing to do so. Such indirectly direct censorship is repressive, but not actionable. When government controls the business environment, it also controls the speech of the workers.

In such an environment, the less you say, the safer you are. When you need to speak, it’s best to use meaningless words. Corporate language has already achieved a high water mark of emptiness with pages and pages that mean nothing. And that language is spreading to the general public, as students learn from a young age to use the appropriate words to express the hollow phrases that are mandatory in a politically correct society. The formal pieties of political correctness lead to hollow sloganeering, an elite that knows the right answer for every question, but doesn’t understand the question itself…

Salman Rushdie understands:

Free speech is the whole thing, the whole ball game. Free speech is life itself.

>Barnhardt: The New Sign On My Front Door


Oh, and all of the multiple indoor and outdoor video feeds (with audio) are being wirelessly uploaded to an offsite server. So if any drama goes down, the entire spectacle will be on YouTube within hours. 

In other words, screwing with me is BEGGING for total, worldwide humiliation.

THIS, my friends, is how we do things in the United States of America.


Shooter ready.

>GoV: The Europeanization Of America – Center For American Progress To Fight ‘Islamophobia’


From Gates of Vienna:

Whenever I post about Islamization, cultural enrichment, and the suppression of free speech in Europe, commenters are likely to remark on the difference between Europe and the United States.

“Europe is lost,” they say (a particular favorite on my posts at Big Peace).

Or: “We’re lucky things aren’t this bad in the USA.”

Or: “Wake up, America! We don’t want to be like Europe.”

Well, think again, fellows: we already are like Europe. You’re late to the game — it’s already underway here.

Five years ago I said we were roughly a decade behind Europe, and we were. But then we elected Barack Hussein Obama as our Dhimmi-in-Chief, and after that we caught up very quickly. We’ve all but closed the gap between United Socialist America and the EUSSR, and Mr. Obama is working very hard to finish the job, and maybe even pull ahead of the EUniks…

And what meaningful opposition is there?

Be honest.

And yes – the Center For American Progress is the group that sponsored this speech by the former cigar-wielder-in-chief.

You may remember it.
