Weapon of last resort being deployed

Well, after some 3 1/2 disastrous years, riddled with bad and destructive policy that put the protection and expansion of the nanny-state over the welfare of the citizenry, I am not surprised to find out that with the race card losing its power because they over played it so heavily for the past 4 ½ years, that democrats now need training on how to effectively play that race card for better effect:

House Democrats received training this week on how to raise the issue of race to defend government programs, according to training materials obtained by The Washington Examiner.

The prepared content of a Tuesday presentation to the House Democratic Caucus and staff indicates that Democrats will seek to portray apparently neutral free-market rhetoric as being charged with racial bias, conscious or unconscious.

In her distributed remarks, Maya Wiley of the Center for Social Inclusion criticized “conservative messages [that are] racially ‘coded’ and had images of people of color that we commonly see used” and proposed tactics for countering the Republicans’ (presumably) racially-coded rhetoric.

Collectivism 101: since you know you can not use logic, facts, or the truth to win, make up ridiculous shit that makes the other side evil and uncaring. This is just like CM’s constant attempts to get us to engage him in discussing income disparity. The argument gets framed and conducted in such a way that it allows him to then say we are uncaring, because we do not want to allow the left to do even more social engineer – to address an injustice that really is more about envy and jealousy than anything else, because their solution isn’t to free people so they can make more, but to punish those that do and do not pay homage to the left’s crusade – and completely misses the point that this social engineering always fails and causes misery, as over 100 years of collectivist history, and more importantly, the world wide economic depression we find ourselves in as the home ownership lending social engineering experiment brought us all low 4 1/2 years ago. I need to mention that the problems behind the latest crisis still remain. The social engineers simply piled on even more social engineering, and pretended this time people would suddenly start behaving like angels.

Anyway, back to the race baiters getting training so they can more effectively lie about their opposition and make the LSM’s job of propagating those lies easier. If you doubt that the envy driven collectivist social engineers aren’t planning a campaign of lies, just read this:

According to Wiley’s group’s website, “right-wing rhetoric has dominated debates of racial justice – undermining efforts to create a more equal society, and tearing apart the social safety net in the process” for over 25 years. Wiley had been invited to run the Democrats “through their strategy and how they message and talk about stuff” pertaining to race and fiscal policy, a staffer for Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., explained.

Check that web site out. Holy freaking insane bullshit! These class warriors have no shame at all. In fact, they feel superior and more moral by pushing this garbage. It’s as if the USSR never happened, and North Korea is a paradise. But it gets better.

As samples of race-coded rhetoric, Wiley reminded the Democrats of statements by Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Of Gingrich’s famous comment about President Obama, her distributed remarks note, “Calling a Black man ‘the food stamp president’ is not a race-neutral statement, even if Newt Gingrich did not intend racism.”

This is akin to making the ludicrous and deceptive argument that pointing out that a male pedophile that preys on little boys is and evil being that destroyed the lives of those poor kids, is an attack on all gay people. It’s nonsense. Nobody in their right mind should take it seriously. In fact, gay people should be offended by anyone that makes this sort of overreach, because basically it is the people making the argument that the pedophile should not be called out that are making the connection.

Basically what we have here is the democrats trying to shut down any and all criticism of Obama because nobody can have any legitimate reason to criticize him unless they are racists. Fuck them and the horse they rode in on. If Obama was green I would still point out how stupid he, the democrats, the vile nonsense they believe in, and the destructive policies they have put in place and continue to pile on, are.

The last 3 ½ years have been disastrous for us. The people that decried Bush for a $250 billion annual budget deficit in 2006 took power and then proceeded to jack that number up to $1.25 trillion per annum. Even worse, Bush was, correctly I add, excoriated for allowing nearly $5 trillion in new debt to be tacked on in 8 years. Obama has tacked more than that in 3 ½ measly fucking years, with thrice that number projected a decade after Team Blue took over the budget responsibility. Speaking of budgets, I should point out that Reid’s Team Blue controlled senate has now avoided passing a spending bill for almost than 3 years now.

We also have the EPA making its own laws and enforcing them with disastrous economic consequences after the cowards that held majority positions and all power in both houses failed to pass the “Cap & Tax” bill. Barney and Chris wrote some 2000+ pages of new regulations. To prevent another mortgage lending meltdown, like the last one that was indubitably of their making, they told us. But all those dead trees covered with more bullshit left the fundamental and underlying problem – the left’s need to social engineer home ownership – intact. Who wants to bet this works out well?

And then there is Obamacare. They told us we needed to wait until it was passed to find out what would be in it. Rigged the CBO scoring so they could lie to us and pretend that it would have a both a positive economic and medical impact. They had to bribe their own tribe members, be it in politics or in the field, with hundreds of billions in favors, exceptions, and exclusions. And most importantly, they exempted themselves and their biggest donors from it all. Now we are discovering this thing is going to control 1/6 of our economy and only get bigger, will cost us probably at least twice what they projected, and if we go by other liberal dream programs like Social Security, will cost multiple times more than the worst case projections, and that the medical care quality will suffer and suffer drastically. Let’s not forget the plethora of job killing efforts by these bastards either. From the XL Pipeline, which seems more about protecting Warren Buffet’s profits and hence his donations to Team Blue than anything else, to the war against coal, which resulted in a convicted WW inmate scoring 40% of the democrat vote in a runoff against Obama, they tell us they want their vision of renewable and clean energy. That vision is companies like Solyndra, of course. Inflate your tires, or better yet, buy an expensive hybrid, and stop complaining about high gas prices you stupid serfs!

The list of other failure is long: unemployment numbers that are staggering, ridiculous gas prices, inflation gone wild, recovery always being just around the corner for over three years now, and a slew of other depressingly bad things. Not to mention the criminal stuff the DOJ pulls regularly. Yeah, we got bin Laden, but that was the military, and while Obama whom deserved props for the decision, the fool decided to milk it for political purposes, and thus made it all a joke. Seriously, it has been solid campaign mode since 2007, very little of substance or value, unless that is, you are part of the circle that made itself stinking rich at the tax payers expense by fooling everyone into letting them blow close to a trillion dollars and call it a stimulus.

The fact is that the left simply has absolutely nothing to sell themselves on. Even their political attacks backfire. They tried to make headway with dog lovers by making Romney a monster, only they forgot Barak ate dog. They tried, real hard, to convince people republicans hate women, because they don’t want to give them “free contraceptives”, that’s in quotes because what it really means is contraceptives paid by other people, of all things, and that blew up in their faces when we found out how well Team Blue and Obama’s own WH treat women all the time. Zimmerman was made out as a racist honkey that killed the poor and innocent Trayvon, out for a night stroll, because he was black. Only when we got the facts Zimmerman was neither white, nor the story as black and white – pardon the pun – and indicative of racism, as the LSM tried to make it out to be. Those evil rich people Obama always talks about? They are his biggest donors. Buffet’s secretary, paid more taxes than him too! Only the left forgot to mention, conveniently, that she likely makes more money than most small business owners do, and that’s why she manages to pay more taxes than Warren.

So when you have nothing to sell you are reduced to demonizing your opponent. Hence the need for race-baiter training, at the tax payer’s expense no less, for Team Blue. But hey, the problem is with people like me. If you do not like collectivism and tyrannical government you are a racist!

    Ah, no. You’ve missed the point by a wide margin yet again. I’m simply trying to explore the internal mechanisms in what you believe in. I never said for a second that anyone here was uncaring. I have no doubt that the vast majority of people on the right are caring – they just come from a different point of view about ‘how’ to care. And I’m not advocating any economic position or theory, I’m trying to get you (or anyone else) to provide some answers to some fairly basic and fundamental queries about what YOU believe. As I said, there are lot of people who believe in this, so it must have significant merit. I’m interested in anything with significant merit.

    because we do not want to allow the left to do even more social engineer

    Actually I want you to explain how the economy is expected to function sustainably, and society is supposed to operate without increasing degrees of alienation, following YOUR economic ideology. Apparently you cannot explain it. All you have are vague unoriginal ideological rantings, over and over again. It appears that you have very strong opinions based entirely on concepts, with zero detail This is nothing new. Every single time you get asked for detail, you repeat concepts.

    an injustice that really is more about envy and jealousy than anything else

    Again, for the purposes of the discussion I was seeking, motivations are completely irrelevant. I’ve already explained that to you. I’m not sure how you keep missing it. Oh, I know, you have no choice but to keep sticking your fingers in your ears. Just like you’re doing again now.

    completely misses the point

    Ah the irony.

    this social engineering always fails and causes misery, as over 100 years of collectivist history

    Do you have a Word document with 20 key vague phrases which you just copy and paste in random places?

    and more importantly, the world wide economic depression we find ourselves in as the home ownership lending social engineering experiment brought us all low 4 1/2 years ago

    Well we’re getting close here…..
    Now if the lower and middle classes continue to get no rise in ‘real wages’, how do they consume (to get the economy going again, and keep it going) unless they borrow? And if they borrow (heavily, which is what they’ll need to do), how does the debt-fulled consumption ‘boom’ not just come crashing down again?
    If the rewards of the productivity gains ALL go to the rich, who don’t spend, and if they do it’s in capital instead of labour, or by buying government stock (i.e. they lend the government money), then where exactly is the consumer market that the economy depends on (it’s 60-70% of the whole economy)?
    Alex that’s your queue to demonstrate again that you’re missing the point again (I’m being generous there, I think you know full well what the point is, I think you just can’t answer it because you’re only about the ideology and not at all about the details that add up to reality).

    Instead of clicking on ‘thumbs down’, why don’t you explain why you don’t like about what I said? What is there to dislike? The mere existence of words?

    I’ll give you a few options to choose from, go ahead and pick as many as you want.

    1) You’re a troll

    2) You don’t know what the hell you’re talking about

    3) Epic Douchebag

    4) Endless links to bad sources

    5) Pretending to debate when you’re actually attempting to lecture

    6) Chickens run in fear from you

  5. CM

    Thanks. Not particularly helpful though.

    1) I don’t meet any definition I can find for ‘troll’. However many comments/tactics from others certainly meet them (especially the responses that just contain personal abuse). Or completely misrepresenting my comments in an opening post (don’t author’s have a higher standard to meet, as they set the tone?). I must have missed your complaints about all that.

    2) If that’s the case it should be easy to explain how/why.

    3) Yes, I have different political opinions than you. Ghastly! Don’t take it personally though. It doesn’t really matter.

    4) Such as? Some links just source the opinion I’ve put forward. How are they ‘bad’? If I didn’t source, I’d be plagiarizing (I’ve already been told off once when I forgot to include the link). Other links provide the source for numbers etc.

    5) Who here doesn’t come across as though they are lecturing? You’re going to run into some pretty serious double-standards here if you actually believe that.

    6) Not just chickens.

    I know i just downvote CM so i dont have to see the same shit over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

    He might as well be a parrot. Anyone who thinks cutting someones hair when yer 17 because it was too long to “fit in” at the prep school, is a reason to not vote for someone, is an idiot.

    Especially if that person ignores everything else that was done by those he has admitted to admiring. AKA The manslaughtering Ted Kennedy. I’m so sad that it took so long for him to get what he deserved for his cowardice.

    You’ve just given two excellent examples of things I’ve never written. So no, you’re clearly not downvoting because of what is actually written.

    It’s not “wrong” to look at total costs of subsidies. Not even when a man of your brilliance think that it is. The important thing is to understand what is being discussed, so that there are no misunderstandings. CM clearly understands the difference between total- and per unit-subsidies. I’m not saying that because I’ve asked him, or because I’ve read his mind. I don’t have to, he’s stated as much in the very thread you are referring to.

    Balthazar appears to want to re-confirm YET AGAIN that he doesn’t actually bother reading what people write. He didn’t read what I wrote about Romney, he’s invented something about Kennedy, he ignored my post about doing so, and now he’s misrepresenting what I posted about oil.
    Any reasonable person would be embarrassed and change their behaviour.
    I can see why Alex, balthazar and Seattle Outcast get on so well. Basic political/philosophical agreement is only one part of it. But they have something much more fundamental in common.
