Drudge Summary of Assassination of 2 Police in NYC by Islamofacist.


Labels: , , , ,


 

#illridewithyou Was Even More Fraudulent Than I Thought

When an Islamic terrorist took hostages in a Sydney, Australia cafe this week, the first thing our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters did — before the siege was even over, before two of the hostages were killed — was change the subject.

The real victims weren’t the hostages. The real victims were Muslims who were too scared to use public transportation because of the imminent anti-Muslim violence that never happened. To combat this nonexistent threat, some genius proposed the Twitter hashtag #illridewithyou, which was supposed to somehow show solidarity with the “victims.” And of course, it went viral among journalists and other people who don’t care about the truth.

As it turns out, #illridewithyou was an even emptier gesture than I first thought. The incident that so inspired all those smug leftists worldwide didn’t actually happen. John Hayward explains:
What never occurs to the Special Snowflake Brigade is that their crusades amount to vicious slander against the people they collective accuse of harboring the darkest thoughts, and hovering moments away from taking the most terrible actions. While a real terrorist was subjecting his captives to hours of sheer terror that ended with gunfire and bloodshed, Jacobs was inventing an imaginary incident of cultural oppression to denounce her entire society for something it didn’t actually do.

In fact, she was doing exactly what she falsely accused Australians of doing to Muslims. She’s every bit as prejudiced as the imaginary bigots the #illridewithyou crowd took an ostentatious stand against; her bigotry simply has different, more politically correct targets. She wraps up her Brisbane Times column by trying to exile her imaginary hobgoblins from Australia, in precisely the same terms that would doubtless drive her incandescent with rage if they were directed at the groups she favors ...
It’s interesting to note that even the original version of Rachel Jacobs’ story was pretty thin, and relied heavily on her final encounter with the alleged “oppressed Muslim woman” for what little veracity it had; that parting scene confirmed that the woman had removed her headscarf as a concession to bigotry, and was grateful for Jacobs’ support to reclaim her dignity. That’s the part that occurred entirely as a delusional breeze wafting between the windmills of Jacobs’ mind. The #illridewithyou hoax only worked because so many people were eager to receive such confirmation of their prejudices, such validation of their feelings of superiority over the miserable cavemen who make up the quietly seething racist bulk of their societies. As America has been learning to its cost over the past six years, it is a very bad idea to put people who feel that way in charge of your government.
Now, are the global media outlets who pushed the #illridewithyou hoax so energetically going to pay equal attention to the author’s admission that she made the whole thing up out of whole cloth?

Gunman executes 2 NYPD cops as ‘revenge’ for Garner



When you incite violence and excuse violence, you get what you ask for.
Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s ­assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote. “They Take 1 Of Ours . . . Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,”
Over the coming days and weeks you will see the Liberal media scuttle away like roaches from the environment and hate they created.

De Blasio did what he could to stoke racial violence between the police and "his" constituents.
It is the sequence that every mayor dreads: the ominous report, the scramble to the hospital and the confirmation that, yes, an attack against the police has proved fatal.

But for Mayor Bill de Blasio, the tragedy on Saturday — when two police officers were shot and killed in an ambush in Brooklyn, according to the authorities — arrived at a particularly trying moment, amid an already fractious relationship with the police.

Police union leaders and officers could be seen turning their backs to the mayor and the police commissioner, William J. Bratton, as they walked past, in a video taken at the hospital where the two held a news conference on Saturday.

A written message from Edward Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, addressed the mayor directly. “Mayor de Blasio,” it read in part, “the blood of these two officers is clearly on your hands.”

Al Sharpton got what he wanted:
AL SHARPTON LEADS MARCH IN DC AS NYC PROTESTERS CHANT: ‘WHAT DO WE WANT? DEAD COPS!’
While Team Obama's favorite race hustler scuttles away from the acts he encouraged, Obama played golf.

What does Teresa Sullivan and the bigots who railroaded the Scottsboro Boys have in common? Pretty much everything.


The Scottsboro Boys were nine black teenagers accused of raping two white women in Alabama in 1931. The case had everything: race, sex, lies about sex, hysterical women, a rush to judgment and the assumption of guilt. It was a landmark case because it tried to use prejudice and mob rule as a substitute for a fair trial. And when the “victims” turned out not to be a victims, the bigots who rushed to judgment were not satisfied. They “knew” that black men always wanted to rape innocent white women whenever they could.  

The similarity is startling. The ante-bellum South was obsessed with the belief in oversexed black men. Fast forward to today where feminists of all sexes are obsessed over what they claim is “rape culture.” The fact that violent crime, including rape has dropped dramatically in the last two decades is irrelevant. Men are beasts and women are victims and truth is a irrelevant. It’s bad everywhere, but especially bad in college where men are believed to be mass raping women. It’s so bad that coeds are holding vigils to “take back the night.” No less an authority figure than President Obama insists that “one in five” college women are raped before graduation. Others say it’s even worse: that the real number is“one in four.” If that’s true, it makes a college campus more dangerous than Mogadishu.

Enter Rolling Stone magazine with a rape fantasy even more graphic that Fifty Shades of Gray. And just as true. An innocent young coed … brutally raped, on broken glass, for three hours, by seven white, rich, Southern, privileged men and one beer bottle. All this on the campus founded by a slave-owner and run by an administration that didn’t care what happened to innocent womanhood.

Eric Owens: Erdely hoped her wildly implausible 9,000-word, agenda-driven excuse for journalism would emphasize “the larger theme of a university culture and social scene indifferent even to the most brutalized victims of rape.”

With all the right buttons pushed, UVA’s administration headed by Teresa Sullivan swung into action. The first thing was to ban all fraternity activity. The story was so plausible to the feminist culture on campus that there were no questions about the plausibility of the story. Like the residents of Alabama in 1931, the people in charge were ready to believe. Like night follows day there were protests, vigils, candles, demonstrations, vandalism and an academic lynch mob. And Teresa Sullivan, who survived being fired by the university’s board just a few years ago, decided that her position was to be the leader of the mob. She knew that the way to remain in her cushy position was to feed to prejudices of the feminists. She knew her audience, because no matter what the press may say, UVA is in every way representative of American academic bigotry and bias. Those mobs, those demonstrators, the people trashing the frat house didn’t have to be created. They were already there, like the racists of 1931 Alabama, hoods and nooses at the ready, to take down the despoilers of innocent maidenhood. And even as the story was falling apart, the truth didn’t matter. Because there’s a large truth, the fable of a campus rape epidemic where every untoward glace, awkward fumble, every drunken hook-up is evidence of the heteronormative patriarchy holding the womyn down.

Sullivan told The Washington Post that the suspension of fraternity and sorority activities would remain in place until Jan. 9, as the university pursues a wide-ranging discussion on sexual assault and campus culture. 

Law Professor Glenn Reynolds: “So the story’s a hoax, but the punishment remains because conversation. Sullivan’s response has been disgraceful.”

We sent an e-mail to Sullivan’s office asking for a statement from her. We have yet to hear back.

Vandalized: Residence of U-M Student Who Dared to Mock Trigger Warnings


Here's the offensive article

Do the Left Thing
TRIGGER WARNING!

It was one of the coldest days of this winter past, and I was hurrying along the Diag to class. The blistering cold did not turn my eyes from all the white privilege falling around my. All those white snowflakes falling thick upon the autumn leaves, burying their colors. Majoring in womyn’s studies, I’ve learned that oppression comes in many forms. Sometimes we fail to notice it because it’s just everywhere – just like that white snow.

As I walked, I slipped on a patch of wet leaves lining the steps of the Hatcher, and I fell forward headfirst onto the steps of the library. If it hadn’t been for the left hand that I thrust out right before my fall, I would have ended up just another statistic in the war on colored people. As it were, a white cis-gendered hetero upper-class man came down the steps just as I was falling. He looked at me with that white man’s burden face that I see too often on this racialized campus.

“Cold, isn’t it?”

Behind his words I sensed a patronizing sneer, as if he expected me to be a spokespersyn for my whole race. He offered his hand to help me up, and I thought to myself how this might be a manifestation of the patriarchy patronizing me. I doubt he would’ve said those violent words had I been white, but he would take any opportunity to patronize a colored m@n or womyn. People on this campus always box others in based on race. Triggered, I waved his hand aside and got up of my own accord.

He was taken aback. Suddenly I felt I was taking back some of that lost agency that colonialism had robbed my people of. I felt like Aamir Khan in Lagaan. That’s right, that white man wasn’t about to tax me. I didn’t even want to be that white. I turned on my heels and showed him my back.

He shouted after me, “I was just trying to do the right thing!”

The right thing… The right thing… I became so aware at that moment of the left hand that I had thrust out before falling, and suddenly my humanity was reduced to my handydnyss. The words rang in my eardrums, and my blood throbbed. This was the microaggression that broke the gender-neutral camel’s back. But unlike other microaggressions, this one triggered a shift in my worldview. All this while, I had been obsessed only with the color on this campus. All of a sudden, though, that became a side issue. All those race-based microaggressions now seemed trivial. I had, I realized, forgotten to think intersectionally.

The biggest obstacle to equality today is our barbaric attitude toward people of left-handydnyss. It’s a tragedy that I, a member of the left-handed community, had little to no idea of the atrocious persecution that we are dealt every day by institutions that are deeply embedded in society. So deeply embedded, and so ever-present, that we don’t even notice them.

But then I think to the word sinister. In our English, it means evil. But that’s because it used to mean left-handed in the Latin, and left-handyd people, especially those of color, were considered evil. In organic chemistry, we are taught R and S distinctions. I realize now that whenever we came across a left-handyd enantiomer in the coursepack, I could just feel the patronizing gaze of the right-handed members of the class on the back of my neck. And now I finally understand why.

And the University of Michigan does literally nothing to combat the countless instances of violence we encounter every day. Whenever I walk into a classroom, I can hardly find a left-handyd desk to sit in. In big lecture halls, I’m met with countless stares as I walk up the aisle along the left-handyd column. The University cannot claim to be my school while it continues to oppress me. We need to find allies with other minority groups and work against the establishment. This campus must be at the forefront of progress in America.

Yes, our president might be left-handyd. But that does not represent the pathetic living conditions of so many left-handyd people around the world, and even here in the United States, who are constantly threatened simply because they write or eat with a different hand. Even today, left-handyd individu@ls are paid 68 cents to the dollar that right-handed individuals are paid.

It is 2014, people. Still, change starts with awareness. Until right-handed people, especially cis-gendered hetero white males in salmon shorts, do not start checking their privilege, we will continue to live in inequality.

No longer will I persevere in patience. No longer will I suffer in silence. I am a left-handyd individu@l, and my humanity needs be respected! The next time someone tells you to Do the right thing! turn around and flick them off with your left middle finger.

Do the left thing.

Run, Ted, Run

Ted Cruz is running for president.

To hell with the independents. That’s not usually the animating principle of a presidential campaign, but for Ted Cruz’s, it just might be.

His strategists aren’t planning to make a big play for so-called independent voters in the general election if Cruz wins the Republican nomination. According to several of the senator’s top advisers, Cruz sees a path to victory that relies instead on increasing conservative turnout; attracting votes from groups — including Jews, Hispanics, and Millennials — that have tended to favor Democrats; and, in the words of one Cruz strategist, “not getting killed with independents.”

They Made Me Write About Lena Dunham

After getting an assignment to wrote about Dunham, he tried to find out who she was. It turns out she has a show on HBO>

Ms. Dunham is 28. I was under the impression that “girls” is a demeaning term for adult women. The title must have something to do with this hipster “Irony” thing, which I confess I don’t understand. The root of the word irony is in the Greek eironeia, “liar.”

I had my 14-year-old daughter, Poppet, instruct me in how to watch an episode of Girls on my computer. (Turns out “content” is not completely “free.”)

Two seconds into the opening credits I was trying to get my daughter out of the room by any means possible. “Poppet! Look in the yard! The puppy’s on fire! Quick! Quick! Run outside and roll him in the snow!”

It turns out Girls is a serialized horror movie—more gruesome, frightening, grim, dark, and disturbing than anything that’s ever occurred to Stephen King.

O'Rourke is funny! Read the whole thing.

The Campus Rape and Sex Management Industry


Not happy at what they have done, the tenured radicals are criminalizing heavy petting. OTOH:
At the same time, Heather points out, campuses indulge in all manner of “sex positive” activities — from orgasm workshops to sex toy management — pushing young adults to abandon any thought of intimate relationships in favor of narcissistic hook-ups.

Leftists become incandescent when reminded of the socialist roots of Nazism


Daniel Hannan - in case we need another reminder - explains that Hitler was a socialist.

You can't accuse the NSDAP of downplaying the "Socialist" bit
On 16 June 1941, as Hitler readied his forces for Operation Barbarossa, Josef Goebbels looked forward to the new order that the Nazis would impose on a conquered Russia. There would be no come-back, he wrote, for capitalists nor priests nor Tsars. Rather, in the place of debased, Jewish Bolshevism, the Wehrmacht would deliver “der echte Sozialismus”: real socialism.

Goebbels never doubted that he was a socialist. He understood Nazism to be a better and more plausible form of socialism than that propagated by Lenin. Instead of spreading itself across different nations, it would operate within the unit of the Volk.

So total is the cultural victory of the modern Left that the merely to recount this fact is jarring. But few at the time would have found it especially contentious. As George Watson put it in The Lost Literature of Socialism:


It is now clear beyond all reasonable doubt that Hitler and his associates believed they were socialists, and that others, including democratic socialists, thought so too.

The clue is in the name. Subsequent generations of Leftists have tried to explain away the awkward nomenclature of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party as either a cynical PR stunt or an embarrassing coincidence. In fact, the name meant what it said.
Hitler told Hermann Rauschning, a Prussian who briefly worked for the Nazis before rejecting them and fleeing the country, that he had admired much of the thinking of the revolutionaries he had known as a young man; but he felt that they had been talkers, not doers. “I have put into practice what these peddlers and pen pushers have timidly begun,” he boasted, adding that “the whole of National Socialism” was “based on Marx”.
The Left, of course, smears the Right with the term Nazi and the "authoritarian" label:

One of my constituents once complained to the Beeb about a report on the repression of Mexico's indigenous peoples, in which the government was labelled Right-wing. The governing party, he pointed out, was a member of the Socialist International and, again, the give-away was in its name: Institutional Revolutionary Party. The BBC’s response was priceless. Yes, it accepted that the party was socialist, “but what our correspondent was trying to get across was that it is authoritarian”.
In fact, authoritarianism was the common feature of socialists of both National and Leninist varieties, who rushed to stick each other in prison camps or before firing squads. Each faction loathed the other as heretical, but both scorned free-market individualists as beyond redemption. Their battle was all the fiercer, as Hayek pointed out in 1944, because it was a battle between brothers.

Authoritarianism – or, to give it a less loaded name, the belief that state compulsion is justified in pursuit of a higher goal, such as scientific progress or greater equality – was traditionally a characteristic of the social democrats as much as of the revolutionaries.

You want to see what authoritarian looks like? Check out Barack Hussein Obama proudly proclaiming he has a pen and a phone. Proudly changing the immigration law with a memo to this Gauleiter at Homeland Security. Check out the EPA issuing rules for the rest of us to live by without even a cursory glance at Congress.  Little Hitlers all.

The Dutch Nazi Party was equally explicit: "With Germany Against Capitalism"
