This is real, pt 299

Via LGM, from a piece on the John Birch Society:

With Mr. Nowak were Ray Tisch, 37, an electrical engineer, and Matthew Yamakaitis, 49, a warehouse worker, who said they had joined the John Birch Society within the last two years because they shared its concerns about the North American Union, the mainstream media and the conspiracy of elite insiders.

“At the highest levels there are controls in place,” Mr. Tisch said. Mr. Yamakaitis agreed, saying that if the insiders succeed in creating a new world order, “It basically means less power for us.”z

“And more for the elite,” said Mr. Tisch.

“The Rockefellers, the Morgans, the Rothschilds,” said Mr. Nowak.

“Ssssssssss,” said the sausage cooking on a nearby grill.
It seems as if it went from a story on paranoid conspiracy-mongers to a children's book at food in the blink of an eye.

Edit: Story from the NYT

This is real, pt 298

Apparently, having the military remove a sitting president is "defending democracy." To be fair, it's a messy fucking situation, but I think one of the commenters over at Sadly, No said it best "Looks like a non-victory for democracy when unconstitutional acts are foiled unconstitutionally."

On personality cults.

Saying that they are purely a thing of the left ignores this and this:

This young man is absolutely right!

Lonewolf Diaries is a true hero of our modern age. It takes a strong man and able comedian to bring forth such truths as "Europe sucks" and "everything I need to know about international diplomacy I learned on the playground."

His most recent column fires a broadside against humorless liberalism and their fascist attempts to control Hollywood and oppress straight, white males. Apparently, we can't make fun of queers anymore (I would not have known this if not for Mr. Crowder's brave reporting). I mean come on - fags are hilarious! I'm serious, mincing around, flapping their limp wrists - what could be better? Humor not hatred , you know?

And along those lines, when was the last time you say a good minstrel show? I miss seeing fate white guys dancing and eating watermelon - and apparently we're not even supposed to make jokes about black people and watermelon. We're supposed to act like those people are real human beings! It's all in good fun! Humor not hatred, remember?

And seriously, are there even any Indians around anymore? Why do people get in such a tizzy over me painting stripes on my face and going "How!" or making war-whoops? No harm, no foul, right? Humor, not hatred.

Why do stuffy, humorless libs always have to ruin my fun!

*and we've finally gone over a week without an incident. Go USA!
