Joe Holleman & Post-Dispatch: Welcome, Comrade!

Sunday’s Post-Disgrace column by Joe Holleman was jaw-dropping.  I had to go back, rub my eyes, and re-read the part where he says “I would label myself — ‘slightly to the right of center'”

After condescending on the simple desire to see Barack Obama’s real birth certificate with all the haughtiness of an east coast liberal, Holleman decided to wade into the controversy between tea party members (note the lower-case) and Don Giljum and Judy Ancel’s promotion, advocacy, and recruitment into the Communist Party.

Holleman says, “I think if we’re going to waste a few thousand dollars, we should do it by employing a few communists at our universities.

Let’s face it, where else are they going to go?

Communism has been kicked out of every Eastern European country. It would be dead in Cuba if the economy wasn’t bolstered by the thriving black market for 1950s car parts.”

So if college campuses don’t provide a safe haven for communists, then they’ll start circulating in the real world. Personally, I don’t need all that earnest goofiness.”

Later, Mr. Holleman points out that he was “irked” that some members of the tea party, who’s blog entries are syndicated on the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition web site, labeled advocates of communism as “degenerates” and “wastes of human flesh”.

‘Some say’ that “degenerates” and “wastes of human flesh” were too kind of words to describe the advocates of communism.

A quick aside to remind Mr Holleman of the facts:

Stéphane Courtois argues that Communism and National Socialism are slightly different totalitarian systems, and that communism is responsible for the murder of around 100 million people in the 20th century. He also argues that the National Socialists [Hitler] adopted their repressive methods from Soviet methods.

Stéphane Courtois (born November 25, 1947) is a French historian, an internationally known expert on communist studies, particularly the history of communism and communist genocides, and author of several books. The Black Book of Communism, a book edited by Courtois, has been translated into numerous languages, sold millions of copies and is considered a standard work on communist genocides.

So, Mr. Holleman wants keep the hiring window open at the universities for the ideology that murdered 100,000,000 people in the 20th Century (and from which National Socialists took their cues)?  Better they be there at the colleges teaching and recruiting our impressionable children than “circulating in the real world”?

Okay then, by Joe’s logic, what other ideologies and political theories should we welcome on campus in the name of academic freedom?  Seems that anyone who murdered 100 million or less in a century works for Joe.  At what point does the level of murder during the implementation of a political ideology become too much for Mr. Holleman (and not just “earnest goofiness”)?

How about supporters of fascism?  Hitler only killed 6 Million Jews – way less than communism dude.  Sign ’em up; right Joe?

How about the KKK? Should the grand wizard of the local radical racists be hired as an adjunct professor at UMSL or UMKC?  What great testimony to academic freedom, right?!?!  They killed way less than 1,000,000 people and probably are even bourgeoisie.

Al Qaeda has killed barely 10,000? Sign up the radical Imams?

But, we certainly don’t the ROTC or, Satan forbid, the Christian Conservatives!

Say it isn’t so Joe… …that you’d try to minimize the devastation and brutality that has been prosecuted in the name of communism and suggest that we allow its advocates a platform to indoctrinate our youth.

I think not!

Sadly, my comparison of communism, fascism, the KKK, and radical Islam will be dismissed as hysterical hyperbole, but ignoring the deaths of hundreds of millions of human beings in the name of an ideology and minimizing the hiring of their supporters at America’s universities?!?!  Well comrade, that’s just “steadfast knuckleheadedness”!

Wishing Death On Glenn Beck

Somehow, your humble blogger started receiving e-mails from a left-wing T-Shirt maker called T-Shirt Hell.  Their shirts were somewhat amusing, but now they’ve upgraded their left-wing civil rhetoric to wishing death upon Glenn Beck.

Beyond the racist and despicable nature of the advertised T-Shirt, the site owner decides to jump into the deep end of the hate-filled rhetoric against Glenn.

Here’s the e-mail:

.

Certainly T-Shirt makers like to be controversial, but upping the rhetoric to wishing death would bring a full barrage of vitriol from the Lame Stream Media if the death wish had been made toward an Ed Schultz or a Chris Matthews!

Hypocrite much?

Have the Republicans yet figured out how pathetic it was to fall into the Democrats new era of civility canard?

Face it folks; the racism and hate is squarely on the shoulders of the Left.

Al Sharpton and the Liberal State Run Media have been touting the racist nature of the Restoring Honor rally long before it ever started and are continuing that meme since it ended.  It’s my understanding that there were more blacks at the Glenn Beck Rally than there were at Al Sharpton’s Reclaiming the Dream rally.  Guess they’re just a bunch of racists too that are hijacking MLK’s dream.

I have noticed that E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. is decried as racist these days, and maybe we need a quick review of some terms in the area of racism:

  • Racism:
    • The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
    • Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
  • Prejudice:
    • An adverse judgment or opinion formed beforehand or without knowledge or examination of the facts.
    • A preconceived preference or idea.
  • Bigotry:
    • The acts of one who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.

There it is.  Most of what I see referred to as racism is either Prejudice or Bigotry.  It’s rare that what you see is actually a belief that one race is superior to the other.

And, the only ones I see exhibiting racism are those on the left:

  • Al Sharpton
  • Sonia Sotomayor
  • Harry Reid
  • Joe Biden
  • Reverend Jeremiah Wright

All have well documented examples of racism, prejudice, or bigotry.

I ask my readers to reply with comments of the vast right wing list of racists and racial activities over the past 4 years.  I hope I get at least ONE example… …other than the dude that made up the ‘getting around Washington on 8/28’ document.

In 1986, Racism Is A-Okay

Rick Sanchez and Dan Abrams went on an on about the treatment of Shirley Sherrod by Fox News, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and Andrew Breitbart.  Paraphrased… …these scummy right-wingers should never have called on Shirley Sherrod to resign based on the heavily edited video on Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com… …even though the video was not edited by any of these personalities and O’Reilly qualified his call for her resignation based on the validity of the video he had seen.

At no point from 7:05 – 7:17pm on July 22, 2010, did Sanchez or Abrams mention THAT IT WAS ABHORRENT TO BE RACIST IN 1986.  Their continued screed against the aforementioned pundits never gave one thought to the fact that in 1986, 22 years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Shirley Sherrod executed her charge in a racist manner.  Not only that, she sued the USDA for $13,000,000 and then was given the job to dole out loans to struggling farmers.

Tom Vilsack, CNN, President Obama, MSNBC and a host of other lefties have now chimed in to concur… …24 years ago in 1986, it was just fine with them to be a reverse racist.

So, at what point did it stop being acceptable to be a reverse racist?  Or did it?

As I travel to Las Vegas, I double-down on the call for her resignation!

I Bumped Into Monica

President William Jefferson Clinton delivered the eulogy for Senator Robert Byrd who died at the age of 92 this week.  Whether or not Byrd’s life and service as a Senator is remembered positively, the stain of racism and the KKK follows him after his death.  But, the former President’s laudatory remarks were both laughable and enraging.

“There are a lot of people who wrote these eulogies for Senator Byrd, and the newspapers, and I read a bunch of them. And they mentioned that he once had a fleeting association with the Ku Klux Klan. And what does that mean?” [Emphasis Added]

Fleeting?  Really?  Bill, that’s like saying, “I bumped into Monica.” Or, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

Byrd joined the ranks of the KKK when 24 and rose to the top officer of his unit.  Byrd held the titles Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops.  It seems a bit more than a “fleeting association”.  Joining and rising in an organization is more than a “fleeting association”.  That’s all well and good, and Senator Byrd apologized time and again for his “fleeting association”.

But apparently, the feeling, the “a jejune and immature outlook” never left him; well at least not before 1964 when he and the DEMOCRATS filibustered the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  But, wait, he changed his outlook after that bill passed.  Nope.  He again was against the Civil Rights Act of 1965.

“In 2005, Byrd told The Washington Post that his membership in the Baptist Church led to a change in his views. In the opinion of one reviewer, Byrd, like other Southern and border-state Democrats, came to realize that he would have to temper “his blatantly segregationist views” and move to the Democratic Party mainstream if he wanted to play a role nationally”

Good, he was drug kicking and screaming into the mainstream and DID vote for the Civil Rights Act of 1968.

Thanks Bob.

Oh, and the ‘racist’ Republican Party was there supporting Civil Rights… …long before you.

Race Baitin’ Racers, Sexists, and Hair-ists

Several months ago, I coined the term ‘racer’ in the vein of ‘truther’ and ‘birther’. The term ‘racer’ describes someone (usually on the left) who continually plays the race card when it is not appropriate or necessary.

Al Sharpton is the king of racers, but even Juan Williams – who even though he works for NPR usually seems like a reasonable human being – joined the fray with the statement, “…you know the president is black” during a segment with Bill O’Reilly on Monday March 28th, 2010. Over and over again since then Mr. Obama initiated his presidential candidacy those that speak out against him are labeled as racist.

The discussion of the Tea Parties has again turned to racism. The left continues to marginalize the movement as initiated under racism, inspired by racism, and remaining operative because of racism. There are some members of the movement who are racist, therefore the movement it racist.

The only reason the Tea Party exists – RACISM.

The members of the Tea Party are against Deficit Spending…
…because Barack Obama is Black.

The members of the Tea Party are against the Health Care Takeover…
…because Barack Obama is Black.

The members of the Tea Party are against Cap and Trade…
…because Barack Obama is Black.

The members of the Tea Party are against High Taxes…
…because Barack Obama is Black.

You are a racist if you oppose the black president Barack Obama. If you oppose the policies of the black president Barack Obama, you are racist. For the post-racial black president Barack Obama, the media and his minions continue to wield the totem of the racist charge.

The charge is made even though there’s been no record or witness to acts of racism at any Tea Party event.

Let’s assume for the case of argument that the charge is true. The only reason for the existence of the Tea Party is the fact that Barack Obama is black. Then, would Al Sharpton agree if the president were, say, Hillary Clinton or John Edwards, the Tea Party would not exist?

Then ‘Logic’ would say…

If Hillary Clinton were president…
…the Tea Partiers would have no problem with Deficit Spending.

If John Edwards were president…
…the Tea Partiers would have no problem with the Health Care Takeover.

If Hillary Clinton were president…
…the Tea Partiers would have no problem with Cape and Trade.

If John Edwards were president…
…the Tea Partiers would have no problem with High Taxes.

Of course, if I were still against Deficit Spending and Cap and Trade, then I’d be sexist. And, if I were still against the Health Care Takeover and High Taxes, I’d be a hair-ist?

The crux.

There is no invasion of racism in the Tea Party. The protesters could care less if the Pope or a Swedish Bikini Model espoused socialist policies – it is still unconstitutional in the members’ eyes. Principle. That is the only driver of the Tea Party movement.
