As an atheist I don’t pal around with very many Christians. I know plenty of non-practicing Jews. But I know no Muslims personally. To me, God has the same reality as does Allah, which is no reality at all. He has less substance than a Martian cloud.
Yet, I still feel compassion for Christians and Jews being persecuted by Muslims. They just want to be left alone to utter their hosannas. I do not frequent churches or synagogues; because these are not places I’m likely to encounter any intellectual discourse. However, the ongoing decimation of Jews and Christians at the hands of Muslims goes virtually unnoticed and reported by the MSM—in the Mideast and in France and practically any place you care to name.
I grew up in a Catholic home, so anti-Semitism has always been completely alien to me. It has a dozen or more bogus rationalisms to explain or justify it. “Jews are taking over the world. Jews run the banking business. Jews want the blood of your children. Jews this and Jews that, they’re to blame for your misery.” I guess an anti-Semite will claim that Jews exterminated the Martians, too. The most ludicrous instance of anti-Semitism is the Russian propaganda of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Reading through it I got the sense that I was reading a pretty awful science fiction novel or a Hollywood script.
The totalitarians in our midst, such as Senator Chuck Schumer, want you to obey, not call him names, and just let him have his way with you and the rest of the country. Speaking of deplorables:
Please, please! Melt the ice!
Close to science fantasy and the elevation of the omniscient–ill feelings of a cackling bogeyman are the current and unshakable anti-Trump mentality of the MSM and the daily utterances of the political establishment, such those by Jeff Flake and Corey Booker.
Outgoing Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake came under fire for an astonishing attack on President Trump Wednesday, in which he accused Trump of using Stalinist language and promoting global instability with his criticism of the media.
‘Comparing the leader of the free world to murderous dictators is absurd," Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted. "You’ve gone too far."
But Jeff Flake, a surely appropriately named U.S. senator, was rebutted:
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shot back at the daily press briefing that Flake had recently visited Cuba, where he had nice things to say about the authoritarian government in that country.
“I found it quite interesting that he is coming out to attack this president considering he's the one who was recently defending an actually oppressive regime. He went to Cuba a few weeks ago and served as a mouthpiece for the oppressive Cuban government.”
She also blamed Flake’s low poll numbers for his attacks on Trump. Flake announced in October that he will not seek re-election in 2018.
Sanders could have called Flake to her podium and in front of everyone called him an idiot to his face. That would have been better desserts.
In the meantime, Corey Booker shed tears and many calories to insult and attack the head of the DHS:
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) lashed out at female DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday, lambasting the secretary as "complicit," in an emotional outburst that saw Booker flail about and scream at Nielsen in disgust — even suggesting she had limited intellectual capabilities.
But yet, Democrats, who turned Sens. Kamala Harris (CA) and Elizabeth Warren (MA) into cult heroes for enduring a fraction of the abuse Nielsen handled during her grilling at Booker's hands, were completely silent on Booker's unprofessional treatment of Nielsen.
“When…Dick Durbin called me, I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in that meeting. And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain — and to dismiss some of the questions of my colleagues saying, ‘I already answered that line of questions’ — when tens-of-millions of Americans are hurting right now […] that’s unacceptable to me,” Mr. Booker said.
I will brainwash Germans,
They’ll hug Muslims,
or I'll jail them!
Michael Walsh commented on the all-purpose, teeny, epileptic vocabulary of Trump’s enemies:
Note the profusion of headlines these days that now include “sources say,” “seems to suggest,” “may,” “reportedly,” and other weasel words whose plain meaning is not. The great scheisshole flap originated with exactly one individual, the proven fabulist Dick Durbin of Illinois, but now has been accepted as gospel by (as Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit, says) the Democratic operatives with bylines. And the great “Russian collusion” hoax—which I pointed out from day one was a disinformation operation facilitated by rogue, but high-ranking, members of the intelligence community, the Democrats, the Clinton campaign, and their hacks and fellow-travelers in the media—has now gossamered away in the wind, having largely been supplanted by 25th Amendment fantasies, Michael Wolff’s book, and temper tantrums over Norway and the new tax tables.
He has clocks on his socks?
That’s enough to finish him!
Mueller to barking up the wrong tree!
The only thing that might lower the perpetual hate-Trump fever today would be an assassination. The Dems and the MSM would shed ample crocodile tears but perform Dionysian dances behind the scenes, though perhaps not; they have dropped all pretence of public decorum. They not have quite called Dr. Jackson a liar or a tool of the Trump “conspiracy” to prove that they is more fit to be President than your average journalist.
Speaking of madness, Al Gore is doing global warming dances in the freezing cold. Now that the Fusion and Russian dossier issue are more or less kaput he’s going to have to find a new job, perhaps as a golf caddy or as a dishwasher in a Washington diner.
