Hate is the Force that Gives the Left Meaning

by Daniel Greenfield on Friday, February 7th, 2014

This is article 184 of 198 in the topic Liberalism

The American left has never had it this good. It has never had two terms of an unabashed and uncompromising leftist in the White House dedicated to its agenda functioning as a dictator without the military uniform, making and unmaking laws at a whim, siccing the IRS and Federal prosecutors on political enemies and transforming the country at a breathtaking pace.

Obama is what generations of the left have dreamed of and worked toward. This is the flicker of hopethey kept alive after JFK’s assassination, the Nixon years, Carter’s collapse and the long stretch of Reaganomics. This is what Bill Clinton robbed them of prematurely by gauging his actions against the polls instead of blasting full steam ahead regardless of what the public wanted.

The left finally has its Un-American tyranny. So why is it so angry?

Watch MSNBC or browse any left-wing site and you see a level of anger that would make you think that Al Gore had just conceded or Nixon had just won reelection. There’s more anger in the privileged circles of the left than in the political rearguard of the Tea Party.

That anger trickles from the top down. Obama’s interview with Bill O’Reilly was yet another opportunity for the most powerful man in the country to blame a vast right wing conspiracy. A day doesn’t pass without another email from Obama, his wife, Sandra Fluke or Joe Biden warning that without another five or ten dollar contribution, the “right” will take over America.

The left has unchallenged control over the government, academia and the entertainment industry and yet it talks as if the country is 5 seconds away from Sarah Palin marching into Washington D.C. at the head of an army of Duck Dynasty fans to outlaw abortion.

The apocalyptic political paranoia and the uncontrolled outbursts of rage haven’t changed much since 2003. Ten years later, the ideologues in power still act as if George W. Bush is serving out his fourth term. Every day on MSNBC, a stew of conspiracy theories about oil companies, Israel, the Koch Brothers, Wal-Mart and Karl Rove leaves a slimy trail across the television screen.

On the internet, manufactured outrage has become the only progressive stock in trade. Did Jerry Seinfeld say that he values humor over racial quotas? He’s a racist. Did an ESPN magazine out a compulsive liar who also happened to be pretending to be a woman? Lock him up. Did Mike Huckabee say something that could be misinterpreted with enough ellipses and out of context “Twitterized” quotes? Before you know it, he’s a sexist pig.

Pageviews are the obvious profit motive behind all this and yet it says something deeply disturbing about a progressive readership that eats up hate and doesn’t react to anything positive. The rash of fake hate crimes feeds into that same perverse need for an enemy to hate and fight. The left used to pretend that it wanted to do something positive. But now that it has the power, it can’t stop searching for someone to hate instead.

The left is more comfortable being angry than being anything else; it finds it easier to rally the troops against something than for something so that even its triumphs only lead to more anger.

Crowdsourcing the End of Free Speech

by Daniel Greenfield on Sunday, December 29th, 2013

This is article 104 of 113 in the topic Free Speech

The end of free speech will not necessarily come when there are soldiers in the streets, secret police in the alleyways and a mustachioed man screaming at you on a television set that can’t be turned off no matter how hard you turn the knob or click the buttons.

Some of these things certainly existed in totalitarian countries. But they were there to sweep up the hardened dissenters who refused to be silenced. The vast majority of citizens did not have bugged phones or men in trench-coats following them around.

That was what their friends and neighbors were for.

The first line of offense by a totalitarian society against freedom of speech is crowdsourced to the people in the streets. It begins with the imposition of a social norm, escalates to punishments for violating that norm and concludes with gulags and firing squads.

No secret police force is large enough to spy on everyone all the time. Nor does it need to. That is what informers are for. Some of the informers are committed fanatics. Others do it because they accept whatever they are told. And the worst do it for the pleasure of destroying someone else using the power of the law.

Whatever their varying motives, ideology or malice, such people become even more dangerous in groups where they become a morality mob.

The Two Minutes Hate in George Orwell’s 1984 is repeated on a regular basis in our society today with hysterical lynchings like those of of Justine Sacco; one of a long list of disposable victims of opportunity. The Two Minutes Hate was a Pavlovian exercise to stimulate the hate reflex. Modern counterparts like #hasjustinelandedyet with its overt malice are the genuine thing.

The process by which these ugly events happen has a good deal in common with any other form of mob violence. There are familiar elements from Shirley Jackson’s disturbing story, “The Lottery”. There is a ritual aspect to the whole thing. The crowd knows what is coming. Like many rapists and murderers, it derives pleasure from a victim who does not yet know what is about to happen and eagerly anticipates the moment of shocked revelation when that will change.

“When is Justine landing?” they whisper eagerly to each other. Sadism is no good if the victim doesn’t know what is being done to her. The anticipation sharpens their appetite for the revelation.

Behind it all is a moral structure. The crowd in the Two Minutes Hate does not randomly lash out. The very name with its time limit is a demonstration of civilization. For two minutes they will become hateful animals in reaction to a profound ideological offense. And then they will turn the outrage machine off.

Anyone can be a mob, but they are a morality mob. They do horrible things because the ends, such as fighting racism, justify the means. They hate for two minutes and then go back to their daily lives.

Structure maintains the illusion of morality. Like The Lottery, it has to pretend that it isn’t random so that the participants can make believe that they are doing this for some nobler reason than the primal joy of bashing another human being’s head in with a rock.

Modern social media is The Lottery.

GLAAD: Lethal Enforcers of the Left’s Tolerance Mob

GLAAD: Lethal Enforcers of the Left’s Tolerance Mob
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2013

“Duck Dynasty’s” Phil Robertson is not alone. He’s the latest in a long, long lineup of politically incorrect targets of the left’s sensitivity mob. Founded in 1985, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) gangstas won’t stop until both the cultural and legal enforcement of their agenda are the norm.

The A&E network (Atheists & Elitists) suspended the reality TV patriarch and self-made businessman on Wednesday for the Biblical views he expressed in an interview with GQ. Robertson was asked by the liberal magazine what he viewed as sinful. Drawing on the condemnation of sexual immorality in Corinthians 6:9, he cited “adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers — they won’t inherit the kingdom of God.”

Robertson’s punishable transgressions? Responding honestly to a question posed to him (this was not an unsolicited “anti-gay rant”; it was a response) and abiding by his Christian faith. GLAAD’s P.C. Praetorian Guard sprung into repressive action. The same group that initially gave f-word-spouting, homophobic liberal Alec Baldwin a pass accused Robertson of uttering “some of the vilest and most extreme statements” against “LGBT people” ever. (They should listen to the Koran-inspired executioners’ rants of gay-hanging and gay-stoning Iranian mullahs sometime.) GLAAD also railed against Robertson’s “vile” preference for female anatomy over male as if it were an international human rights violation.

A&E folded faster than a stadium seat, immediately disavowing Robertson and suspending him from his family’s show indefinitely. Meanwhile, network execs continued to cash in on the lucrative “Duck Dynasty” empire with a marathon of program reruns on the very day they threw Robertson under the bus. The network is free to do that, of course. And I am free to tell you all about the radical thugs that A&E indulged.

GLAAD has worked tirelessly to marginalize and suppress the free speech of Christian leaders, Christian businesses and conservative talk-radio hosts dating back to their infamous Dr. Laura boycott 13 years ago. The group’s mission is not about equality or defending against “defamation.” It’s about silencing critics, making open debate radioactive, demonizing people of faith and making even the slightest perceived slight a hate crime.

Last year, GLAAD speech-squelchers issued a blacklist of 34 Christian commentators they wanted networks to ban from their air for “extreme” views (read: opposing gay marriage). Earlier this year, GLAAD attacked the National Geographic Channel for partnering with the traditional values-promoting Boy Scouts on a reality TV program. GLAAD is free to start its own Gay Scouts, but instead chose to harangue NatGeo for refusing to run a “disclaimer” at the beginning of each show condemning the Boy Scouts’ leadership policies.

It’s not enough to live and let live. You must repent and genuflect before the self-serving gods of selective progressivism. That’s why GLAAD forgave Hollywood director Brett Ratner for using the word “fag.” He was allowed back into the protected Hollywood club after submitting to GLAAD reeducation camp and appearing in GLAAD public service announcements.

The war on rich white men

by Lloyd Marcus on Monday, December 16th, 2013

This is article 142 of 165 in the topic Racism

I heard a knock on the door of my hotel room. It was Donald. “Turn on Megyn Kelly. She is reporting about an MSNBC commentator’s claim that using the term “Obamacare” is the same as calling him the N word.” http://bit.ly/18QPu5V

MSNBC’s Melissa Harris Perry’s accusation is absurd. It is an obvious weak attempt to distance the president from Obamacare which is wreaking havoc in the lives of millions of Americans who are losing their health care.

What I found most disturbing and what I wish to focus on is Perry’s evil attempt to gin up hate against “wealthy white men” who she claims created the term “Obamacare” to demean and undermine the black president.

Due to the Obama Administration playing the race card to win every argument and silence opposition, America is polarized along racial lines. Perry’s false accusation is like throwing gasoline on the flames of national racial tensions; as irresponsible and cruel as screaming fire in a crowded auditorium.

Perry’s specific use of the term “wealthy white men” was insidiously strategic. Low info blacks in my family along with blacks across America will believe Perry’s nonsense to be the gospel truth. With the wave of black flash mob violence and the rising incidents of the racially motivated knockout game, the last thing we need as a nation is another black TV celeb promoting a racially charged false narrative.

Democrats and liberals like Perry have been promoting the same irresponsible, divisive and racist false narrative for decades. They claim that all evil in the world is the fault of racist, greedy, sexist and evil wealthy white men usually identified as conservative Republicans.

Perry’s rant is simply the latest blow to the chin of America’s white males by a liberal. Flash back to New York Times columnist, Maureen Dowd’s 2009 article titled, “White Man’s Last Stand.” Dowd’s article excoriated white men. http://bit.ly/1bsYmc5

Obama and company’s reelection strategy was centered around a shock-and-awe media blitz branding the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney as an evil super-wealthy racist white guy. http://bit.ly/1cz7noO

So, we get it. While political correctness is the unwritten law of the land, it is open season on trashing and targeting the American rich white male for destruction; even deemed morally correct and patriotic.

Who is out there giving rich white men props for their many positive contributions to society? Where are their advocates? I am sure with me being an American black man, liberals think it unconscionable that I would suggest such a thing; elevating me to “super” Uncle Tom status.

In 1895, Booker T. Washington formed a coalition of black leaders, politicians and white philanthropists (rich white guys), with a long-term goal to build the black community’s economic strength and pride by focusing on self-help, education and entrepreneurship. http://bit.ly/19fDhpF

Perry’s ridiculous claim that the term “Obamacare” is the new N word is laughable. The N word is defined as a contemptuous term for a black or dark-skinned person. Sadly, American rich white men are viewed with a similar contemptuousness; despised, kicked around and unfairly mistreated.

Bottom line, Ms Perry and the whole liberal machine pushing the war on rich white men should be ashamed of themselves.

Liberals: identity politics still trumps America’s best interest!

by Lloyd Marcus on Monday, September 16th, 2013

This is article 169 of 198 in the topic Liberalism

Ed Asner’s explanation for Hollywood’s silence regarding Obama attacking Syria epitomizes the absurdity and danger of political correctness and identity politics. Ironically, Hollywood progressives find themselves slaves of their own emotion driven brain-dead loon-icy. Hollywood along with Democrats and the mainstream media have declared all opposition or criticism of Obama racist. “A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama,”said Asner. http://bit.ly/1enttei

Excuse me! They don’t want to “feel”? Dear Lord, while we adults are discussing national security, Democrats (Hollywood Progressives) are still obsessed with feelings and protecting the first liberal black president. This is why it is crucial that voters send “adults” to DC who will put the best interest of America, first!

Democrats, Hollywood and the mainstream media’s super sensitivity to racism and sexism only applies to liberal Democrat blacks and women. Thus, a Hillary Clinton presidency would, in essence, be the third term of Obama; furthering his “fundamental transformation” of America, implementing their liberal socialist/progressive agenda.

Anyone opposing or criticizing the first “woman” president would be politically shackled, placed in stocks and humiliated in the public square for sexism. Suckered again by allowing their political enemies to set the rules of engagement, wimpy weak-kneed Republicans will surrender and give Hillary everything she wants; complicit in ignoring the Constitution and the best interest of We The People.

In glaring contradiction of their well-crafted image as defenders of blacks and women, Democrats have a history of take-no-prisoner assaults on black conservatives. Democrats seek not merely to stop them, but their total destruction, insuring that their uppity black derrieres never dare challenge the liberal’s agenda again.

The term “high tech lynching” was birthed out of the over-the-top vitriolic media circus created by Democrat and liberal media efforts to block black conservative Clarence Thomas from becoming a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

A liberal radio host called the first black Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice an Aunt Jemima; claiming that blacks only have subservient roles in the Bush Administration. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,139031,00.html Imagine a conservative radio host calling a black Democrat politician an Aunt Jemima. Their career would be over.

Then, with class and dignity Dr Rice endured the Attacks of the Racist White Liberal Cartoonists. Pat Oliphant and Jeff Danziger featured Rice with exaggerated big lips speaking in a rural southern dialect.

In his Doonesbury comic strip, Garry Trudeau called Rice “Brown Sugar.”

Ted Rall in his comic suggested that Rice was Bush’s “house nigga” in need of “racial re-education.”

Was there push back from the mainstream media over the blatantly racist cartoons? Heck no. As a matter of fact, Universal Press Syndicate and the New York Times distributes these racist cartoonists. http://bit.ly/zDYdaV

Republican Michael Steele was the first black man to win a statewide election in Maryland. And yet, when the LT Governor ran for the U.S. Senate he was pelted with Oreo cookies at a campaign appearance. An Oreo is a black person who is black on the outside, but white inside. http://bit.ly/DLEz4 A white liberal blogger released a racist doctored photo of Steele as a black-faced minstrel.

Patterns and Incidents

by Daniel Greenfield on Thursday, September 12th, 2013

This is article 135 of 165 in the topic Racism

Last Wednesday, Lashawn Marten was playing chess when he announced, “I hate white people”. Then he began hitting random white people who were walking by. By the time he was done, several were wounded and one lay dying.

I have walked by countless times and seen the chess players sitting near the overhang of the Union Square subway entrance; mostly black men daring white passerby into a money game. At the fountain to the left, Moonies squat on a blanket and sing their sonorous chants. To the right, the remnants of Occupy Wall Street set up tables to collect money and dispense buttons.

In warmer weather, break dancers perform on the stairs and office workers sit beneath the statue of George Washington expelling the British and eat lunch. NYU students mingle with Whole Foods shoppers. Elderly Puerto Rican men push makeshift wooden carts piled with unlabeled bottles of homebrewed soda pop and dog owners head for the run underneath the towering edifice of the Barnes and Noble superstore.

On Wednesdays, the farmers’ market shows up and if not for Rosh Hashana, I might have been passing by the chess tables, maneuvering between the Moonies, the protestors and the chess players. Jeffrey Babbitt, the man Lashawn beat to death looks familiar to me if only because he has that kind of New York face that you pass on the street. You see it worn by plumbers and high school teachers. It’s the badge of the vanishing New York City working class.

No conclusions will be drawn from the murder. Lashawn Marten was obviously mentally ill. And if his mental illness took the form of violent racism toward white people, that is an incidental fact. The murder is an incident. The details are incidental. Even if Lashawn is actually prosecuted on hate crimes charges, no conclusions will be drawn from what happened between the chess tables.

Incidents take place all around us, but patterns have to be articulated. The incident is insignificant. It’s the pattern that counts.

Our minds are not trained to hold incidents. They are trained to grasp patterns. The patterns and incidents float all around us like bits of data. They are formed out of the firsthand experience of our memories and the secondhand experiences of the news items that we pick up. They are the chess game that goes on in our minds between our subconscious processing the events of the day and the outside forces seeking to shape our minds. The pieces that they move around are our thoughts.

The patterns that we absorb from reality we call common sense, but the patterns imposed on us are propaganda.

A man can live in a building where a dozen murders have taken place and still believe that he is in a low-risk area as long as he is told hat there is no pattern to these murders. That each single incident does not form any greater whole. And a man can be compelled to believe that he is living in the deadliest place on earth by convincing him that two local murders in one year form a pattern.

The incident is anecdotal, but the pattern is scientific.

LGBT and the Atheists – The New ‘Body Snatchers’ of the Last Days

by Rev. Michael Bresciani on Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

This is article 202 of 242 in the topic Religion

tn_the_new_body_snatchers.jpg“If your entire sense of morality and right and wrong is derived from today’s pop-culture trends – you are probably on a direct path to hell.” Anon

In a visit to a state fair in Minnesota evangelist Bradlee Dean’s ministry booth came under attack from a local TV station acting on information taken from the Southern Poverty Law Center which labeled him and his ministry a hate group. The attack is typical of the LGBT, the SPLC and similar groups who seem to think that labeling people as haters or worse is their particular calling or stock in trade.

While the practice of labeling people as haters is itself hateful, its philosophical premise is also junk pop-culture nonsense. It is silly to think that anyone who disagrees with certain behavior or a higher moral standard is a hater. Mothers tell their young when they are wrong, courts tell the criminals when they are wrong, teachers tell their students when they are wrong, et al. Are they all haters?

Morality derived from a consensus of opinion is already highly suspect.  The moral math is easy.

“Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment.” (Ex 23: 2)

Those of today who do follow the crowd into the new morality (no morality) are no different than those of the first century. Sometimes called the ‘Body Snatchers’ in theological circles, the Nicolaitaines invaded the early churches of Pergamos and Ephesus. They taught people that it was OK to eat meat offered to idols and even worse they encouraged licentious behaviors of every kind.

They caused many of the early believers to leave the church and live exactly like everyone in the world around them. They literally, snatched them out of the church, but today the movement leaves them in the church and rips out the foundational doctrines of the church, thus we have what is known as the last day’s apostasy.

These people like their modern counterparts’ were quite tired of being told, by true believers, that ‘they were loved but their behavior was not.’

Yet, it was Jesus Christ who set the example. He clearly announced that he hated their deeds, (the Nicolaitaines) but never claimed that he hated them. Why would he – he was both their creator and redeemer – he was trying to draw them in, not cast them off.

“But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.” (Rev 2: 6)

Modern Nicolaitaines insist that God has changed his tune and now accepts their prurient behavior, but it is not so. The same warning given to the ancient Body Snatchers applies to their modern counterparts. To wit:

“Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.” (Rev 2: 16)

What has changed? The LGBT and SPLC and atheists are throwing the ‘hate’ label around like a PC anti-personnel device and the weak are either running for cover or giving in to the apostasy and allowing them into the fold.

Both the church and the modern Nicolaitaines need to be aware that time is not on their side. Dr. R. G.

The Truth Behind The Exploding Trend Of Black Mob Violence

by Bob Livingston on Monday, August 26th, 2013

This is article 133 of 165 in the topic Racism

 

The Truth Behind The Exploding Trend Of Black Mob Violence

SPECIAL

Christopher Lane was killed on Aug. 16.

The mainstream media is the propaganda arm of the state. It has a narrative that it must reinforce on behalf of the state. All information contrary to that narrative is discarded and/or suppressed. Those who stray from the official line are harshly dealt with. (See Amber Lyon, Sharyl Attkisson, Glenn Greenwald and Helen Thomas.)

Last week, as we learned of the assassination of Chris Lane by a trio of amoral predatory racist gangster wannabes looking for street cred, a fact was curiously missing from mainstream media accounts: the race of the thug racist assassins and the victim. From the big networks we learned only the suspects came from the “seedier” side of town and that to satisfy their boredom they shot a man who happened to pass by at the wrong time. The shooters were not black and the victim was not white; he was a college baseball player from Australia.

The story that three black gangster-wannabes gunned down a white man for sport — choosing the victim because he was white and they believed “90% of white ppl are nasty. #HATE THEM” — was not the official story. Nor did the MSM tell us that the trio was also threatening a classmate who they planned to ambush and murder the same day.

Contrast that with the treatment of George Zimmerman, who was crucified by a media that cast Zimmerman as white (he’s Hispanic) and that selectively edited a 911 call to portray him as a racist who hunted down and killed a helpless and unarmed teenager out for Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea. The media ignored Trayvon Martin’s criminal past and the fact that Skittles and Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail — which is what Martin was actually carrying — are two ingredients for “Lean” or “Purple Drank,” a recreational drug popular in hip-hop culture.

Photos the MSM used depicting Martin inevitably were photos from Martin’s early teenage years — when he still had a youthful, cherubic appearance rather than the menacing, gold-toothed, gun-wielding glare that peered from behind raised middle fingers in his Facebook posts at the time of his death. Photos of Zimmerman showed a threatening, plumpish face with a five o’clock shadow of beard growth: again, a dated photo. It was classic bait and switch or doublethink.

The United States is suffering from a moral rot that has become endemic. This is by design. The moral rot is aided and abetted by the MSM, which not only encourages debasement but covers it up with doublethink and obfuscates its results.

Western governments, led by psychopathic Malthusiasts bent on population control and despotism, are working overtime to create a culture of death and depravity. Their efforts are advanced by a dumbed-down noneducation system, Hollywood’s death and consequentless-sex culture, secular humanism, collectivism and altruism — all of which lead to group consciousness and group response to authority. This leads to the acceptance of sexual perversion, destruction of the family, mass medication and inoculation, acceptance of government as democracy and the politics of envy, deceit, economic class warfare and immorality.

How Oberlin Manufactured the Hate-Crime Hoax of the Year

How Oberlin Manufactured the Hate-Crime Hoax of the Year
by Michelle Malkin

Busted. Stone-cold busted. Just as I suspected, “progressive” pranksters at Oberlin College have been definitively unmasked as the perpetrators of phony campus “hate crimes” that scored international headlines in March. The blabbermouth academic administrators who helped fuel the hysteria are now running for cover.

The Associated Press, USA Today, The New York Times, MSNBC, Yahoo News and the Huffington Post were among the media outlets that trumpeted the story of supposed racism, homophobia and anti-Semitism run amok at my alma mater. Throughout the winter, anti-black and anti-gay graffiti, swastikas, and a shadowy figure in a “KKK hood” surfaced on the tiny campus outside Cleveland, Ohio. Black Entertainment Television News decried the hate outbreaks and “KKK sighting.”

Because of my firsthand knowledge of Oberlin’s long history of self-manufactured hate-crime incidents, the fake-hate-crime alarm bells went off immediately for me when I read the reports. Back in the 1990s, race-obsessed nutballs at Oberlin College cooked up a horrid hate-crime hoax. Asian-American students claimed that a phantom racist had spray-painted anti-Asian racial epithets on a campus landmark rock. It turned out that it was a warped Asian-American student who perpetrated the dirty deed.

Student newspapers were filled with complaints about imaginary racism. One Asian-American student accused a library worker of racism after the poor staffer asked the grievance-mongering student to lower the blinds where she was studying. A black student accused an ice-cream shop owner of racism after he told the student she was not allowed to sit at an outside table because she hadn’t purchased any items from his store.

My suspicions about the latest “hate” crime were bolstered by police statements that the “KKK hood”-wearing menace was actually a female student wrapped in a blanket. Hollywood darling and Oberlin alumnus Lena Dunham was undaunted, however, in ginning up emotional calls for Obie solidarity on Twitter, which the AP dutifully reported as “news.” My warnings and reports on previous Obie hoaxes, alas, were not deemed AP-newsworthy.

The orgy of self-flagellation swelled. Liberal grievance-mongers applauded the administration’s decision to shut down classes. Faculty, students and opportunists took to the airwaves and the Internet to bemoan “white privilege,” institutional bigotry, lack of diversity, yada, yada, yada.

And now, the rest of the story. According to police reports published by Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller News Foundation this week, two students had ‘fessed up to most of the incidents (and fellow students suspect they are responsible for all of them). The Oberlin Police Department identified the hoaxers as Dylan Bleier (a student worker bee for President Obama’s Organizing for Action and a member of the Oberlin College Democrats) and Matthew Alden. Bleier told police the pair posted inflammatory signs and a Nazi flag around campus to “joke” and “troll” their peers.

Investigators “caught them red-handed” trying to circulate anti-Muslim fliers, and a search of Bleier’s email confirmed he had used a fake account to harass a female student. Cops told Oberlin President Marvin Krislov, but he failed to pursue any criminal action. The two students were removed from campus before the bogus “KKK” brouhaha and news-making shutdown.

Russell Simmons, rape video clown

This is article 29 of 30 in the topic Hate Speech

Oh, what a tangled web libs weave when first they practice to aggrieve!

Let’s review: Democrats and civil rights leaders are busy conducting a ridiculous witch hunt against a harmless Missouri rodeo clown who dared to wear an Obama mask. Oprah played the race card on a Swiss shop owner, whom she dubiously accused of denying her a look at a $35,000 handbag because she is black. P.C. mau-mau-ers steamrolled Paula Deen over three-decade-old comments. And feminists continue smearing Republicans as “War on Women” misogynists, while enabling Democratic perv predators Bob Filner and Anthony Weiner for years.

Now, along comes left-wing rap mogul Russell Simmons this week promoting a racially shocking, rape-mocking YouTube video depicting a Harriet Tubman “sex tape” with her white slave master. Tweeted Simmons late Wednesday night: “Funniest thing I’ve ever seen.” The Obama pal and outspoken liberal linked to the vulgar video on his “All Def Digital” YouTube channel.

He’s “Def” all right. Tone Def as a doorknob. Social media users of all races and political backgrounds immediately rose to condemn the pornographic skit degrading an American heroine.

Adrienne Gravish wrote: “I am livid and disgusted. I actually feel like (vomiting). Utter disrespect of Harriet Tubman’s legacy and what she fought for.” Roland Martin wondered: “Do ya even understand the degradation of Black women during slavery? They were RAPED!” Zerlina Maxwell pushed back against Simmons’ “sex tape” spin: “Dear Everyone: It’s not a sex video. Stop putting “sex” in your headlines about Harriet Tubman. #rapetape”

Britni Danielle of clutchmagonline.com summed it up: “Casting an obese Harriet Tubman to play into of the negative stereotypes about Black women’s bodies? Check. Portraying Black women as Jezebels who use sex to get what they want? Check… This video is not only completely unfunny, but it’s a slap in the face to Harriet Tubman, as well as the millions of enslaved African Americans who suffered through the unspeakable horrors of slavery.”

But instead of calling for public boycotts, protests and Justice Department investigations, the NAACP grievance-mongers helped Simmons out by privately advising him to take down the video. The tolerance mob’s crusaders against rodeo clowns couldn’t let a rape video clown knock them off message!

Simmons obliged Thursday morning with a non-apology apology on his media website, GlobalGrind.com (better known for posting naked photos of Rihanna and Lindsay Lohan). He audaciously invoked his liberal immunity card: “When my buddies from the NAACP called and asked me to take down the Harriet Tubman video from the All Def Digital YouTube channel and apologize, I agreed. I’m a very liberal person with thick skin. … I can now understand why so many people are upset. I have taken down the video. Lastly, I would never condone violence against women in any form, and for all of those I offended, I am sincerely sorry.” [emphasis added]

Never condoned violence against women in any form? Longtime observers of Simmons’ rise to entertainment-industry power beg to differ. He built his profanity-laced rap empire on sexual degradation, misogyny and violence. Called out by a small number of black feminists, spirituality expert Simmons whined during a promotional interview: “I had a book tour about peace and love, and everyone wants to talk about b*tches and hos.”

Sincere?
