BOOM! D’Souza’s Latest Destroys Well-Worn Lefty Narrative

He’s baaaaack.

Fresh off Stealing America: What Criminal Gangs Taught Me About Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party (2015), Dinesh D’Souza is loaded for bear. His latest, The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left, takes aim at some of the Left’s most cherished fictions – like the Democratic Party is the party of emancipation, equality and civil rights, and the Republican Party is made up of “racists,” “Nazis” and “fascists.”

D’Souza round-files that horse hooey faster than you can say “Yvette Felacra.”  (But really. Why would you? Side note: The Screeching Gnome of Berkeley has no idea what “fascist” even means. Not that that really matters…)

Why I Stand 

Dear NFLers and other overpaid cry babies:

I’ve noticed that some of you poor oppressed multimillionaires are still suffering from delusions of grandeur. You seem to think the gridiron is a political bully pulpit. That fans cough up absurd amounts of dough so you can you diss our flag, national anthem, military, veterans, law enforcement, the country that blessed your socks off, and pretty much anyone who graduated from third grade because you’re *protesting*…. something.

Fine. I just thought I’d respond with a few reasons why I stand for the flag and the Star Spangled Banner. Among other things, I stand for:

  • Those who fought, bled, and died for the freedoms I enjoy (including your right to disagree and act like a jerk.)
  •  2,402 Americans who died at Pearl in ’41.
  • 412 emergency responders and 2,977 total lives lost on one Tuesday morning in September. For the passengers of Flight 93 who refused to be cowed by evil on 9/11. 
  • Those who run toward the sound of gunfire, putting themselves in harm’s way to protect and preserve others.
  • Friends and relatives who were and are law enforcement officers, fire fighters, EMTs, and members of all five service branches, both active duty and retired.

I stand because:

  • Mom and Dad taught me manners.
  • Respect and honor are more than words on a page.
  • Dad flew in B-17s with the Army Air Corps in WWII as a bombardier/navigator in the European Theatre. He was part of the Ploesti air raid (three-quarters of those guys never came home).
  • My father in law served with MacArthur’s forces in the Philippines, Leyte Gulf, and the jungles of New Guinea. He watched the Japanese surrender aboard the U.S.S. Missouri from a troop ship anchored in Tokyo Bay.
  • My husband served as an officer of Marines, Infantry.
  • remember “One small step for man.” Reagan, Gorbachev, and “tear down this wall.” Also the 1980 U.S. men’s hockey team and the Lake Placid Olympics.
  • I’ve read the founding documents. Ditto Twelve Years a Slave. Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Ayn Rand. Moses. Jefferson, Hamilton, and Madison. Pasternak, Kafka, Solzhenitsyn, and Bastiat.

I stand not because America is perfect or hasn’t made mistakes. I stand because on balance, America and American principles of individual rights, personal liberty and responsibility, free market capitalism, and limited government are great forces for good worldwide. 

I stand because even with its flaws and foibles, America is still the noblest, freest, most generous and greatest nation on God’s green earth.

And because:

So why don’t you all – oh, I dunno – stow your on-field whining and belly-aching? Man up. Get off your sorry keisters, grow up and stand up!

‘Grab Bag II,’ Conniption Fits, & Clueless Cassowaries

Holding tight to whatever? Good. Cuz we’re going to go fast today, covering a bunch of random stuff. You might want to buckle up.

First: Repealing Obamacare. I support Graham-Cassidy, basically for the same reasons the Family Research Council and the Susan B. Anthony List have endorsed Graham-Cassidy. Their September 15 press release reads in part:

Oopsie: “Impeach Donald Trump” Poll Doesn’t Go Quite The Way Tweeter Thought It Would 

File this under “Oopsie.” Or “epic face plant.”

The brain surgeon who runs Twitter’s “Impeach Donald Trump” account put up a poll recently. It didn’t quite turn out the way they thought it would. Here’s the account (@Impeach_D_Trump):

Here’s the poll:

Here’s Impeach Donald Trump’s Mach 4 back pedal:

Impeach Donald Trump put up another poll recently asking if you think Trump should be impeached. Available responses were Yes, No, and I Don’t Know. Last time I checked, the “Nos” were ahead by 92%. 

And just in case you’re wondering:

Washington Student Government Conference Raises Questions

Fall is a season of change. It’s when things get moving after summer. (See What I Did on My Summer Vacation – Sort Of.) Temperatures dip. School starts. If you’re part of student government in a community college within Washington state, this is also the season when you get to dive into some pretty nifty extracurricular stuff.

Like a statewide student government conference offering workshops on You’re not colorblind, you’re white! Understanding your Privilege and Targeting Ally/Accomplice Behaviors with an Anti-Racist Mindset. Understanding white privilege, white identity and white fragility. “Uncovering the harm that is done when white people say, ‘I don’t see color, I treat everyone the same.’” Whiteness as Property: Being Conscientious in Student Leadership. DACA Safe Spaces. (“A counselor will be available.”)

I kid you not.

Grab Bag

It’s “Grab Bag” day. That’s when we throw a bunch of stuff into the hopper and see what comes out on top. Ready? Good! Let’s go, starting with…

DACA. This stroke of executive amnesty from Herr Obama should be discontinued and returned to Congress if for no other reason than it’s illegal. The executive branch doesn’t make law. The legislative branch does. Not that anyone’s counting or anything.

While we’re on the subject – sort of – is the Statue of Liberty about importing immigrants or exporting liberty? What say you?

Meanwhile, hasn’t it been interesting to watch Let’s Make a Label when it comes to immigration? It used to be “illegal aliens.” Then it was “illegal immigrants.” Followed by “undocumented immigrants.” Now the Label du Jour seems to be “undocumented citizens.”

Well, shoot. If we’re going to play Let’s Make a Label on this, can we at least be honest?  Wouldn’t “unregistered Democrats” be more accurate?

Speaking of Democrats,

What I Did On My Summer Vacation (Sort Of)

Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, OR*

First things first: What I Remember About Texas & How You Can Help Hurricane Harvey Victims.

***

Well, doggone I said to myself as summer played out. I say that a lot when dealing with Leftistas. Or escapees from the House of Demlam. Which are pretty much the same thing.

Okay. Where was I? Oh, yeah. Well, doggone, I said. Sure as the San Francisco Giants are headed for the basement, the Summer of 2017 may go down in history as the summer when the Alt-Left lost its collective mind. (Yes, there’s a big assumption there. But roll with it for a min, okay?)

For example, take the Leftista meltdown over President Trump’s pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Where were these dear hearts when President Obama commuted the sentence of FALN terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera?

Then there’s that summer chart-topper, Moon Over Mayhem. Brought to you by anarcho-fascist goons who are so brave, they won’t show their faces in public. Aka: Zombie Apocalypse flunkies. (For an interesting primer, check out: Antifa – Just Who Are They?)
