Victor Davis Hanson (VDH) did not call Obama a joke in his own time. However, he did build a solid case for that claim in this P J Media article. I am a long-time fan of Victor Davis Hanson even though I don’t always agree with him. This is one of those times. It’s not that I disagree that Obama has become joke of his own making. VDH’s case on that point is irrefutable. Where I differ with Hanson this time is his claim that Obama has done no permanent damage to our country, in his very first sentence: Critics […]
Apparently, even God isn’t above the reach of union thugs. Here’s the background. Quakers (not the Oatmeal folks, the actual religion) needed a new “meeting house” (their place of worship=church). However, they decided to go with non-union labor. That’s when things, shall we say, got interesting. Philly .com, via Weasel Zippers has more… As agonizing as the process was, the result is a trim little design, faced in traditional Wissahickon schist, that will visibly reflect the ideals Quakers hold dear, from respect for the environment to plain old good neighborliness. And yet, in one crucial way, the $5.8 million project […]
Their numbers are low, but their damage total is large. That seems to be the proper way to encapsulate the Occupy Movement. By most reports, their May Day Activities were rather small, but possessing a destructive potential beyond their numbers. Here is what happened in Seattle… Of course, this really didn’t happen, because Occupy is peaceful. And, if it did happen, it was someone else’s fault!
May Day Destruction Falls Short of Prediction, Seems Occupods Incapable of Mass Destruction They Promised
Yeah, they smashed some windows, and assaulted photographers, and probably spread some vermin, but the May Day antics appear to have not even lived up to last year’s destruction. However, it appears to have not been for the lack of trying. Here are some reports from around the country. Occupy San Franfreako Get’s a Head Start: Destruction Ensures Because it’s always someone else’s fault… Yes, these folks were with Occupy, but occupy is “peaceful.” So, when the violence occurs, it’s always someone else. Get it? Local Business Owner “not the “F**king Man,” Fails to Realize That he’s Just Been Thrown […]
If you have been a regular reader here, you know that we have been covering leftist violence for several years, and May Day has always been a lowlight. A communist celebration of intimidation, thuggery, and vandalism. Here are some examples from 2010… And, just like OWS, there is vandalism and destruction at most every protest, but it is always someone else’s fault. The Blaze also has some more current examples… We’ve all seen violence behavior from the left wing. That is nothing new, and we’ll continue to see it. What we have to understand is the why of it. They know that […]
Imagine if you will, that you own a house that is under renovation. It was purchased by your deceased wife, who wanted it renovated to make a nice home for a local family. Now imagine that this happened…. This, my friends, is yet another example of what the occupods are. They displayed it openly, in actions and words. I think the video speaks for itself.
Is the Molotov cocktail now the official drink of the Occupods? It would appear to be true. Consider this, from KOIN Local 6… In the latest development in the Occupy Portland occupation, a man living at the encampment was arrested for the second time in less than a week, this time on arson charges inconnection with a Molotov cocktail thrown at Portland’s World Trade Center late Tuesday night. This comes amid an announcement that Mayor Sam Adams and Portland Police Chief Mike Reese will hold a news conference regarding Occupy Portland Thursday at 10 a.m. at City Hall. Earlier this week, […]
A Tale of Two Coverages: Leftist Sites Omit Occupy Oakland Vandalism and Property Destruction UPDATE: More Destruction, and Here There be Trolls
Well, the hard left, in the form of the Occupods, continue to expose themselves. And, as it unfolds, we see the MSM, as well as the left blogs and sites, continue to cover for them. A great example is in the coverage of the Occupy Oakland General Strike. Here is an excerpt from Fire Dog Lake.. UPDATE: Here’s an eyewitness report from the protest, which has morphed into a march up Broadway. They’re chanting “Shout it out, without a doubt, banks took trillions to kick folks out.” UPDATE II: Mike Konczal has pictures of Men’s Wearhouse and the Grand Lake Theater, both […]
Occupy Wall Street Quick Hits: Many Still Don't Know Why They Are There, Some Being Paid, Local Businesses Annoyed, and One Defecates on Police Car
Well, as the Occupy Wall Street Protests continue, the evidence of their useful idiocy continues to grow. Over the last several days, more and more stories emerge that point to what we have been saying all along-that this is a protest filled with foolish characters. Here are some points made by several stories and videos… The protestors say that they are “just like us,” and are represent 99% of people that aren’t “rich.” Now, most of “us” must be white, because, as Michelle Malkin points out, that crowd is awfully white-kinda like MSNBC’s lineup. One thing you won’t hear the MSM harp […]
As most are aware, London has been wracked by massive rioting. While it does not appear to be particularly political in motivation, I would suggest that it does show how far Western Culture has fallen. For additional coverage, here is an excerpt, and pictures, from the Daily Mail. Scenes of mob rule became more terrifying by the minute as widespread arson and anarchy was added to the orgy of looting. By midnight flashpoints had multiplied around London, with Clapham, Hackney, Dalston, Peckham, Woolwich and Lewisham added to the list which already included Enfield, Walthamstow and Tottenham. Police were unable to prevent […]
