Are we doomed to Orwell’s ‘1984?’

I don’t have much to offer today. Plum wore out. I leave this with you for a Friday.

And of course this from my stash of old stuff.

From the 2003 Television docudrama: George Orwell – A Life in Pictures. A reminder from George Orwell.  This is where we are.

Woman who took down Durham Statue a Pro-North Korea Marxist

 

Now that is saying something. So this has everything to do with tearing down our country not any statue. It sure is a stretch for someone to become a fat boy supporter. Talk about over achieving. Zip has caught up with more of her pals in his post More Arrested In Toppling Of Confederate Statue In North Carolina. Of course :Workers World Party communists. Those were also the beginning foot soldiers of Occupy. Note in all of the footage of Charlotte and Durham that the Blacks were few in number. I guess they didn’t get the message:

One of the activists who toppled a Confederate statue in Durham, N.C., on Monday night is a member of an extreme leftist group that supports the totalitarian regime in North Korea and wants to abolish capitalism.

Taqiyah Thompson, a student at North Carolina Central University, was arrested Tuesday following a press conference in which she defended the actions of the demonstrators and equated police officers to Confederate soldiers and Ku Klux Klan members.

“I did the right thing,” she said. “Everyone who was there — the people did the right thing. The people will continue to keep making the right choices until every Confederate statue is gone, until white supremacy is gone. That statue is where it belongs. It needs to be in the garbage.”

Thompson is a member of the Worker’s World Party (WWP), a revolutionary Marxist-Leninist group originally formed in 1959 as a hard-line offshoot of the more moderate Socialist Workers Party. In addition to supporting a wide range of far-left causes, the group also defends the North Korean regime of dictator Kim Jong-un against alleged U.S. imperialism. More at Daily Caller

Bye-bye America, and Fox too. It was good to know you

What to even say today. I thought Trump was an honest man yesterday as he took on both sides of the violence that occurred in Charlotte. But that apparently took everyone over the moon.

We can’t talk about Antifa. That had become abundantly clear. I am not a racist. But I do treasure our history. The visual of the statute coming down in Durham haunts me. Civil war looms. This will not stand because as Trump said, there will be no end to it. So, I am done with Fox- with the Perino nugget included below. Bye Bye America.

Here is a tweet that sums up the situation:

After we blast Look Out Mtn off the face of the earth, might as well head to GA, start w/Stone Mtn b/c “fragile folks” simply can’t bare it

And to add insult to injury, Fox is now impossible to watch. Am I the only one who saw “Eboni’s” rant against Trump on “The Specialists?” I tuned in yesterday just to see if there was going to be an apology. Just more of the same. Bye Eboni.

And add “The Five.” Now this. Bye Perino.

Fox News New Low: Establishment Mouthpiece Perino Implies Pro-Israel Breitbart a Nazi Site

Fox News viewers were livid after Dana Perino—long suspected to be someone, like Megyn Kelly, who cares more about the opinions of elites in New York and D.C. than Fox News’ viewers—smeared Breitbart News as a site for Nazis on Monday.

It seems like the vapid Fox News host knows less about Breitbart News and the alt-right/new right than the Cuban Missile Crisis, which is saying quite a lot.

Perino lashed out at President Donald Trump on The Five for allowing Nazis and the alt-right to seek “safe harbor under his wing” before adding that “the alt-right doesn’t even believe in the Constitution of the United States.”

“These are people who, through, sites like Breitbart for the last two years come after people,” Perino said. “I thought Nazis were something that we dealt in the past … of course, I knew [there were] like little groups here and there … but that America had a handle on it.”

Vice Mayor of Charlotte VA Wes Belamy the true racist. Mayor Signer a Soros stooge Update

UPDATE: Check out Always on Watch: Jason Kessler: Agent Provocateur?

Warning: Very offensive statements will be included in this post. I include them because I think it is necessary to appreciate and understand the characters behind what went wrong in Charlottesville. We have a Mayor who came right out of Soros’s  Center for American Progress. Worked with John Podesta. What a nice set-up. The Trump bashing is the set up to see our former black President come in on his White horse. Keep your eye out, Obama is about to emerge. Then we have to ask why would this town tolerate this nasty hateful Wes Belamy? A school teacher no less… but let’s get started.

Vice Mayor Wes Belamy of Charlottesville Virginia attending a council meeting in a Nigger-Nigga-King T-Shirt…Promoting Black Power.

Its OK for Bellamy and other Blacks to display and promote Black Power, but will send Police to stop a legally permitted Protest by White Nationalist, and then demand the President label them domestic terrorist after they were attacked by known forces of terrorism, do you not understand the insanity of how the left are playing up to this double standard of rules and laws meant only to shut down any and all opposition to them so that it creates this thick fog of chaos so they can hide and operate within. H/T:Jerico777

Here are a few of what he has to say:

 

CBS Censors Vice Mayor’s Anti-White Tweets in Confederate Story.

Wes Bellamy, Charlottesville’s vice mayor and an Albemarle public school teacher, is one of the leaders in the fight against the Confederate memorials. But as of December 2016, he resigned from teaching and stepped down from his seat on the Virginia Board of Education because of the criticism he’s facing for offensive tweets. Bellamy’s comments have ranged from writing, “I DON’T LIK WHIT PEOPLE,” to criticizing female teachers as “fkn a sure fire way to fk our lil boys up.”

There were racist tweets, such as his comment in 2009: “I DON’T LIK WHIT PEOPLE SO I HATE WHITE SNOW!!!!! FML!!!!” And his 2010 tweet: “I really #hate how almost 80% of the black people here talk white.”

There were inappropriate and crude tweets. The same year, he tweeted: “ALRIGHT. My phone goin ham. Lol. THERE IS A DIFF BETWEEN ASS& EATIN PUSSY!!! I repeat THERE IS A DIFF BETWEEN ASS& EATIN PUSSY!”

There were also sexist posts. “I’m all for equal opportunity..but a Female Principal with a school full of female teachers is fkn a sure fire way to fk our lil boys up smh,” he tweeted in October 2011.

Enter Michael Signer, Mayor of Charlottesville:

Check out this information about the Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville:

He has worked for the Center for American Progress and worked with John Podesta on Barack Obama’s State Department Transition Team.

Check out  this list of articles that Mr. Signer has written. Just a couple:

If it is true that the Unite the Right group, a group which had a lawful permit, were forced to walk through the lines of Anti-fa so as to reach their designated assembly place, I submit that the authorities in Charlottesville were hoping for violence to break out.

And how is that the murderer’s car sat there idling for several minutes and was not noticed by the police?

FOX: Police pulled out of Lee Park after the violence started, said too dangerous UPDATE

Always on Watch includes this in her comments at her blog:

Check out this information about the Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville:

He has worked for the Center for American Progress and worked with John Podesta on Barack Obama’s State Department Transition Team.

Mr. Signer has been busy since yesterday evening — all over ever news show I saw — in his zeal to lay yesterday’s outbreak of violence “at the steps of the White House.”

Check out this list and this list of articles that Mr. Signer has written.

If it is true that the Unite the Right group, a group which had a lawful permit, were forced to walk through the lines of Anti-fa so as to reach their designated assembly place, I submit that the authorities in Charlottesville were hoping for violence to break out.

And how is that the murderer’s car sat there idling for several minutes and was not noticed by the police?

But I digressed:

A couple of hundred stupid people had a permit to hold a rally. Antifa and Black Lives Matter did not. The stupid people who were exercising their rights had their permit pulled and were told to disperse. And so the police in fact threw these people right into the cement filled soda cans being thrown by Antifa. The police? They were told to stand down. Here is a little viewed video that includes Fox news McKelway who was standing right in the midst of it with the police. Start it at 2:40

McKelway told FOX News viewers the police pulled out of Lee Park after the violence started.

The police told him, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.” This was after violent Antifa terrorists launched an attack on the white supremacists.

Move the video to 2:40.

Doug McKelway: We are now beginning to hear criticism bubble up on all sides of this event about the initial slow response by the police. When I got out of my car yesterday in Charlottesville about 10:30 in the morning you knew this was a bad scene and bad things were going to be happening because people were congregating at Lee Park and Emancipation Park wearing helmets, body armor, carrying big heavy sticks. Nobody was intent on peace here from either side. People were intent on causing havoc and causing damage. And even as wounded were being brought out of the park police were sitting idly by. I was standing off a cordoned off area where the police had set up as a staging area, the state police, and they said you can come in here this is a safe area. But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, “Where you going?” He said, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous.” They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.

McKelway also interviewed a police spokeswoman who said “people” were hurling soda cans filled with cement.This is an Antifa tactic.

One can only wonder if there were those who wanted this rumble to turn into what it did. H/T: Gateway Pundit

Sunday Respite – The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

This is supposed to be a “respite.” I will let Adrienne express my views with her post:

What the hell is wrong with people? Crazies are running rampant in Virginia…

I first posted this song back in 2015. I picked it then because the news was full of the push to rid the history of the Civil War and any remembrance of the South’s participation. 650,000 lives were lost. Enough said.

This is a song about a confederate soldier named Virgil Caine and his days in the American Civil War. It is a very emotional and haunting narrative.

“The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down”

Virgil Caine is the name
And I served on the Danville train
‘Till Stoneman’s cavalry came
And tore up the tracks again

In the winter of ’65
We were hungry, just barely alive
By May the 10th, Richmond had fell
It’s a time I remember, oh so well

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And the people were singing
They went, “Na, na, la, na, na, na”

Back with my wife in Tennessee
When one day she called to me
Said “Virgil, quick, come see,
There goes the Robert E. Lee!”

Now, I don’t mind chopping wood
And I don’t care if the money’s no good
You take what you need
And you leave the rest
But they should never
Have taken the very best

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
They went, “Na, na, la, na, na, na”

Like my father before me
I will work the land
And like my brother above me
Who took a rebel stand

He was just 18, proud and brave
But a Yankee laid him in his grave
I swear by the mud below my feet
You can’t raise a Caine back up
When he’s in defeat

The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
They went, “Na, na, la, na, na, na”

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And the people were singing
They went, “Na, na, la, na, na, na”

 

The Sad Saga of the Media

Ours is a diseased media – Guest post by Mustang who also spins some great tales at Fix Bayonets and Thoughts From Afar

You know, if this wasn’t pathetic, it might make you laugh aloud. Recently, the New York Times claimed to have leaked a ‘secret’ gloom and doom climate change report; one that President Trump was trying to keep away from the public. Included in the article was the ever-present sniping at anyone who hasn’t swallowed the Gore lies and distortions. Now …um … the British scientist who completed this report wonders, how could the New York Times leak a report that was available to the public since the study went through the review process?

Is this an example of shoddy journalism, a careless attempt at fake news, or is it the very best example of leftist humor?

I would love to be able to peek under the covers, wouldn’t you? Wouldn’t you love to know who and what are behind these slapdash attempts to smear President Trump and/or his administration? Don’t you love all my conspiracy theories, noting of course that if people are out to get you, then you aren’t paranoid?

Why would the NYT (ostensibly responsible to profit-motivated stockholders) waste ink and space on such a dumb article/accusation as this? Particularly one so easily debunked. I think the answer is that it doesn’t matter. Someone is paying them to do it. I have no idea what the costs are of doing this, but I do know that a full-page advertisement in the NYT costs $150,000 (if done in black and white) —and you know, that is such a paltry sum of money to someone like Georgie Soros, or any number of other communist rats.

What I would love to see happen is someone from the Washington Examiner or New York Post do an expose on the behind-the-scenes antics of the American left. Tell us what happened, who is paying for it, and then let us be done with this mish-mash about how journalists on the left are really looking out for America’s best interests.

It is long past the time for Americans to begin holding the news media responsible for their nonsense. Why have we allowed the NYT to get away with such things as: plagiarism, failure to print the truth about famine in the Ukraine, or the Duke University Lacrosse fiasco, or delayed publication of the NSA’s warrantless surveillance of the American people?

I think it’s a market-share game that results on the print media preying upon its readers. As a case in point, the NYT printed stories on fashion news that was actually promoting its advertisers. Admittedly, no one has ever accused the New York Times of honesty.

I believe the NYT already knows that the number of people who read their rag is but a small percentage of the overall population (estimated between 650,000 to just over one million —in a city of just under 9 million inhabitants), but those who do read it are addicted to leftism and they’ll keep coming back for more —no matter how dishonest the stories are. Similarly, CNN and MSNBC pander to a peculiar audience, which is to say people sufficiently stupid to buy into communist social policy, and as equally senseless in buying products offered by their advertisers.

Well, to summarize, these are the millions of Americans who have long warmed to the idea of forgiving women who flush their babies down toilets. The way I see it, they are beyond redemption. Finally, in speaking about journalists, my good friend Kid” put up a video the other day. In the video, a Russia’s foreign minister enters the press room and prepares to answer questions. Before he takes his seat, however, American [ita non sit vox designativa] Reporter Andrea Mitchell begins to screech out questions. Perturbed, the foreign minister asked if her behavior was an example of her up-bringing. Good for him!

The video caused me to look more closely at Mitchell. My conclusion is that she is woefully unqualified to do the job for which she is being paid. She has a degree in English Literature, and while this may confirm her literacy, she is still as dumb as a box of rocks. If you wanted to get someone to respond to questions, and if those answers were ever to end up as a headline, then wouldn’t you want to approach that person with politeness? This incident, by the way, makes me wonder if the Russian foreign minister ever again allowed Mitchell back into the press gallery.

I hope not.
