Fred On Everything missed Captain Capitalism's White People Appreciation Week, but still delivers in Cuddling with Disaster:
...in today's political clime in America, we actually enshrine incapacity as authentic or democratic or of the people or whatever. We dumb down everything for the emotional benefit of the incapable.James Taranto at the WSJ comments on two recent stories.
First, his comments on the above photo of citizens lining up for ObamaCare:
The first thing we thought of when we saw the pictures was the photos we've recently seen on Twitter of Venezuelans waiting in bread lines. Waiting in line to purchase necessities is a characteristic not of a prosperous free society but of command economies under repressive regimes. Closer to home, one doubts even the Transportation Security Administration would be so tone-deaf as to advertise long airport lines as an indication it's doing a great job.ADDED 11am:
And on the recent mass arrests of Democrats in California not making the cut for CNN coverage:
... CNN's claim of "covering state senators . . . just about never" doesn't hold up either. A search for Wendy Davis turns up 168 stories--though to be sure, a few of them involve an actress with the same name.Matt Barber hits these key words, and thus the X ring, in his Townhall article, The Communist States of America.
Cultural MarxismAnd this wonderful quote:
Regrettably, today's "low information voters" as Rush Limbaugh calls them - to include the useful idiots within the GOP's "moderate" and libertarian wings - are simply too lazy, shortsighted or both to learn the facts.Indeed.
You may ask, "Karl, when are you going to stop harping on this Moral Nihilism like it is the end of the world, or something?" Well...
Why doesn't Matt Barber own a Commie Obama hat?
The White House shooter gets 25 years for chipping the paint on 'the people's house.' As Solzhenitsyn explained in Gulag Archipelago, the positive of Gulag life as a political prisoner meant no Party meetings. Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez won't have to stand in line for health care either.
A heads-up to the great men and women of the Secret Service: some in Obama's America would consider this guy as lucky as a lottery winner, and may choose to emulate him. (If they can find/afford the ammo.)
ADDED 5pm: Whoa! A whole new angle to the WH shooter. Pot Head + Alex Jones + Fluoride.
