Deranged Liberal Blogger Charles Johnson: When Beck Said “We the People” He Actually Meant “Barack Obama’s a Racist Who Hates White Culture”…

Using his super-sekrit Glenn Beck Decoder Ring (everyone on the left is issued one) the Husky Ponytailed Blogger translated this doozy:

      For far too long, you White Women Wearing White Hoods have benefited from your whiteness and proximity to the Great Satans, White Men. You also played the victim card of being wimmensk under the mighty thumb of said Satans. In recent times, you have infiltrated the workplace while continuing to do the lioness’s share of housework, child-rearing and finding things that the White Men have lost.

      It is time for you bitches to pay the piper.

    All Trump’s doing is calling a bully out. He knows they can’t even control their people anymore because they don’t have decent human conditions such as jobs, freedoms, normal comforts. You really want some bearded old man telling your wife what she can wear and do? Chunky thinks that’s fine while pretending to be for women, gays, etc… That’s where leftism falls apart and you have to jettison your brain in order to be in the club. Then you can be for the Obungle admin treating these thuggish troglodytes as equals and giving them billions. Knowing full well they gave the money to Hezbollah to shoot missiles into Israel. Trump may eventually deal with these scumbags but at least he’ll make sure we get something in return. The previous idiots simply gave them money to shoot missiles into Israel.

        Wars everywhere. Wars as far as the eye can see. 😯

        Note: “insult” in this context means he has disagreed with the parties question on some point, or points, and asked for a discussion of the matter. The Left sees all these as declarations of war. That’s why the Left is insane, among other reasons.

It will give Chunky a reason to tweet some self preening virtue signalling spew no one cares about.

    Singer is correct in saying the next Ice Age will be far more devastating to life on Earf as we know it, than any of the miniscule Warmening we might cause in the meantime. None of us alive now needs to worry about this inevitable glaciation cycle, but I’d bet the Envirohysterics would scream bloody murder if humans took serious action like sooting the snow fields to head off the cascading effect.

    • Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

      We can live on a planet with more storms, more blizzards, more droughts, more wildfires (all totally unproven supposed symptoms of Teh Warmening). And a few feet higher seas. But SPACE IS COLD. Even just mini-i ce ages have brought on unthinkable hardship and mass death as crops fail and the food chain collapses. If we go back to Snowball Earth which happened around 6 – 7 hundred thousand yrs ago which was a vicious ice age of epic proportions we better be starting to think about The Big Space Fuck. The latter being a futuristic short story by Kurt Vonnegut about human space colonization.

      A sample of The Big Space Fuck.

      “blockquote>In 1989, America staged the Big Space Fuck, which was a serious effort to make sure that human life would continue to exist somewhere in the Universe, since it certainly couldn’t continue much longer on Earth. Everything had turned to shit and beer cans and old automobiles and Clorox bottles. An interesting thing happened in the Hawaiian Islands, where they had been throwing trash down extinct volcanoes for years: a couple of the volcanoes all of a sudden spit it all back up. And so on.

      This was a period of great permissiveness in matters of language, so even the President was saying shit and fuck and so on, without anybody’s feeling threatened or taking offense. It was perfectly OK. He called the Space Fuck a Space Fuck and so did everybody else. It was a rocket ship with eight-hundred pounds of freeze dried jizzum in its nose. It was going to be fired at the Andromeda Galaxy, two-million light years away. The ship was named the Arthur C. Clarke, in honor of a famous space pioneer.

      LOL! And so on.

  15. Octopus says:

    The end of this master con-artist’s long reign of error can’t come too soon, but how will all of his fanboys react when the curtain’s pulled back? He has legions of True Believers out there, who go apeshit whenever he is criticized online. I think he will probably walk away from it all rich and totally unrepentant, and go down amongst his faithful as some kind of “misunderstood genius,” like the original Tesla. The billions squandered by the government on his bullshit will be written off as trivial nothings, which, in the Grand Scheme Of Teh Warmening Boondoggle, isn’t totally crazy. Trillions are being spent chasing that dragon.

      I was in a penny stock a few years ago and they were using the same tactics Musk uses. Creative accounting financials, announcements of deals about to be signed in Indiana, then China, then Italy with big shot investors like the Agnellis (Fiat). The funding was always imminent. All meant to keep people from selling and keep buying watered down worthless shares. It was IPWG. After awhile we just started calling it the pig. Some on the board I used to go to had their entire life savings in that little piece of crap and were counting on it for retirement. And after awhile you would find out that the principals were starting other crappy hyped up companies, based in Delaware where it’s legal to issue more shares to get more chumps to buy in. Hard to believe that Musk was able to pull this crap on a grand scale with all these big deal analysts and investment companies looking on. Musk won’t end up broke but a lot of others probably will when this thing starts to truly tank. Greater fools and what not I suppose.

    • OLT's Ring Given Freely says:

      I hate to agree with Musket Morgan, so thankfully a woman mentioned in the article makes this statement:

      “From a guy who routinely makes sophisticated observations about race and whiteness in a humorous way…”

      So this is fake news. Because Trevor Noah has never been remotely funny.

      Come to think of it, in this article, Piers praised Noah’s predecessor, Jon Stewart, as some sort of comedy genius, when in fact he’s nothing more than a garden-variety wanker.

      Two strikes.

          I think it’s Deep State collusion. They know that classified information is valuable so they leave the door open for their other Deep State colluder friends to trade on it. It’s insider information. Which of course, is totally illegal in the private business world.

    Heracles’ post shows up after almost 10 years! A lot has happened since then. We’ve lost marvelous friends like “Nil Stooge” & “IronFist” and odd folks like “Mike C”and “No2Liberals”. Am probably missing folks on both sides of the aisle here, but it’s been an interesting decade. Obama is out of office & we have the White House & Congress. And liberals can’t figure out why and neither can too many Republicans.

    Latest binge on Hulu. Difficult People. Very funny. Two Jewish funny desperate friends trying to make it in comedy in NY. Think Will & Grace except without the characters that have a conscience. It’s pretty funny. Because they’re shallow there’s no political bullshit. They could care less about that crap and are totally self centered. This show also has Andrea Martin from Second City who plays the principal character’s psychiatrist mom. She’s so funny and quite a nice looking lady still after all these years. She’s 3rd generation Armenian as you may recall (I looked it up to make sure). And she really is. But I think the joke on SCTV was “Hey I’m not a Jew. But I have a big nose and I’m trying to be funny in showbiz. So now you racists don’t know who to hate”. LOL!

  19. Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

    One of my favorite scenes from a favorite movie. Remember when Ash went apeshit and tried to stuff a magazine down Ripley’s throat. And they had to beat the shit out of him knocking his head off and discovering he’s a fucking robot programmed by “The Corporation” to sell them all out. So they will die bringing back the horrific alien presumably for study, profit and possible weaponization (profit)? I mean the scene is so full of meaning because the corporation has no idea what a nightmarish, insideous threat this thing is to humanity. As Ash says “It’s structural perfection is matched only by it’s hostility”. So he knows how dangerous it is but doesn’t care.
    But the crew know. They didn’t trust Ash all along. And he mocks them “I can’t lie to you about your chances…but you have my sympathies. With a smirk on his face.

    Notice my lovely darling crush Angela Cartwright is in this scene, still beautiful with her big eyes and triangular face. I saw this in the theater with a girlfriend who was quite pretty and her equally pretty older sister. They both literally were clawing me during the scary scenes. I was in heaven! Sci-fi, Angie Cartwright, the Jennings daughters climbing on me. My work is complete here on Earth. 🙂

  20. Octopus says:

    Vic is on fire with this one. And he asks a very disturbing question: Just how far will the Left go?

    I think civil insurrection on a much-larger scale than we’ve seen since the ’60’s isn’t out of the question. There certainly are a lot of celebrity scum cheerleading for such an outcome.

  21. Octopus says:

    It doesn’t make me happy that formerly great cities are turning into literal shitholes. Seems like I should get a little schadenfreude-boost out of such liberal failure, but it just makes me sad.

    Hearkening to Trevor Noah’s racist jokes.

    Of course when this first came out we were all like “What did she say? She wants to touch herself?” It was taboo at the time. She had that tiny sweet mouth with adorable crooked English teeth. And bangs in her eyes! And near the end when she finally brushes her hair out of her eyes she looks JUST LIKE the famous Australian actress Nicole Kidman. OMG they’re like a breed of sexy white Anglo girls. They came to compete with the Aboriginal girls and they aim to win and take the whole place by storm. It’s the rhythm of Life.

    But I disagree with Noah. There are plenty of lovely aboriginal ladies. You can see the ancient structure in the face because they haven’t been through the grist mill of Europe or Asia in the last 50,000 yrs pressuring them to look like children. Very primal yet properly beautiful.

    • Bunk X says:

      She had her nose bobbed?

    • Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

      I mean just look at that pic. She’s probably a half breed aborigine. But her DNA is still supplying that swollen brow ridge. That’s some added protection against the Homo Erectus troglodytes these real humans were at war with many eons ago. It’s always in the backs of our minds. The troll under the bridge. The scary monster.

    Tomorrow is an early start for me. Got a notice on the door ( all apartments did ) that starting tomorrow at 9:30am there will be an inspection of apartments, checking the smoke alarms and fire extinguishers.

    My tiny fire extinguisher says it is not empty but it needs filling.

    Also my smoke alarm fell off the wall over a year ago, died a screaming “Beep” “beep” death and mysteriously the battery some how got used for another project.

    So, setting my alarm for 5am and off I go to Walmart to get a new fire extinguisher, a new smoke detector thingy ( and a battery )

    But…. and this is the BIG problem.

    I have paid my $50 cat deposit. I can have a cat in my apartment.

    But, as you know I have one Princess Natasha Katinski and one Boris Stroganoff.

    They come and go as they please, I leave the window open all the time, but knowing my luck when I get inspected BOTH will be in the apartment!

    NOOOOO!!!! Two cats! I will get evicted….

    Well thinking about it, most of the time the only way you can tell Boris is a real live cat and not a stuffed toy is that he does not have a tag sewn onto his tail saying “Made in China. Cool wash. Short spin. Do not iron”

    • Bunk X says:

      Plan on being there during “The Inspection.” If you’re not present, things become invisible and you’ll not find them again. If you can’t be there, hide a cam or two, but be aware that videos in Houston may be dismissed as evidence of theft for no reason.

      • Bunk X says:

        If you get an inspector who claims you’ve got two cats instead of the one allowed by your landlord, pull a Schrödinger’s cat argument on him, explain that the cats are both the same, just in different time-space dimensions. Do it in a German accent and don’t back down. If they continue to be skeptical, talk about your credentials in the Physics Department at Rice and give them my phone number.

    • Octopus says:

      • ISTE says:

      Which reminds me, I need to see that new movie about John Callahan. Boy, would his cartoons piss people off today! 😆

      Read his autobiography years ago, which I believe the new movie is based upon, “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot.” His cartoons were ruthless, which he could get away with back then because the SJW’s were still sniveling over their participation trophies. Nowadays, he’d be ripped from his wheelchair and lynched for some of those “cruel vignettes.”

            No. The frogs are mainly for listening to at night, or tracking them down with a flashlight to see them humping.

            The danger to your kale is from cabbage aphids and cabbage worms. Good luck with that!

            OK that makes sense. I don’t recall frog schlong attacks being a problem in past years. Probably just good for it’s skin, or at least that’s what we’ll tell the innocent kale :). I do recall something chewing holes in the kale a few years back. We had to sort of share it like a protection racket. Guessing it’s those thugster aphids and worms. Nice kale ya got here.

      • Octopus says:

        It’s not stupidity, it’s that they have very poor distance vision. They’re actually very intelligent, not to mention strong as hell for their size. They can kick your dog’s ass, for example. Their population across the country is increasing, like that of coyotes, as they can live (and die) in close proximity to humans. They are omnivorous, like us. They wash their food if there’s water around. Speaking of water, they are very strong swimmers, and many a dog has drowned trying to chase them across open water.

        Still, the great majority of them are killed by cars. It’s their fatal flaw. 😦

        I worked as a bartender in Iowa for fourteen years.

        One night had two men at the bar who were from Arkansas.

        It was a slow night so we all talked about everything. and anything.

        Then one of them said “I have never, ever seen so many dead raccoons at the side
        of the road as I have seen in Iowa”

        My reply?

        We don’t eat raccoons in Iowa.

        • Octopus says:

          That’s a shame, ‘cuz they’re supposed to be pretty good eatin.’ Whenever people in America have been truly up against it, from the earliest settlers to Depression-era scrabblers to hungry scavengers in rural areas today, raccoon has been a staple meat in the diet.

          Around here, the coyotes get at the roadkill ‘coon pretty quick, and then the crows clean up the next day. I just can’t seem to beat those guys to the carcass.

          • Octopus says:

  35. Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

    I read a sci fi story once about a child who was born and was frighteningly precocious. He had big eyes and a triangular face (like Angela Cartwright :)). He learned voraciously. One scene in the book had him witnessing the neighbor struggling with getting his lawn mower going. The boy jumped the fence and made the necessary fix without a word. The neighbor knocked him down in frustrated anger. Instead of thanking him. He learned something about human nature from that. In his teens he went on a crime jag. Climbing into rich people’s homes and stealing their jewelry and riches. The cops viewed it as a sort of crime wave. No one ever suspected the odd kid. It ended when he got caught climbing out of a house by a beloved policemen friend. And made a spur of the moment decision to kill him in order to keep the secret of his crime spree. He realized almost instantly it was a horrible decision and was filled with regret. The cop had a wife and children. Later in the story others were born around the world with this same “mutation” implying some evolutionary step forward. Our main character made it his aim to help others like him. Some were in destitute situations and he could easily help them. But he went to see one that was monstrously deformed. Physically still a baby but also a mental giant of terrifying power who was angry at the universe. He realized he couldn’t help and fled from the horror of this one’s thinking. I cannot for the life of me remember who wrote this. Let me know if you recall who wrote this. It would have likely been in the 1960s.

    I’ve read tons of sci fi. I only got sick of it when I found out there were better writers. But there were some crazy good future speculative stories in that genre. Just the concepts alone. Such as Ringworld (based on Dyson’s sphere concept except a rotating ring a million miles wide with 1000 high walls to keep in the atmosphere) and Niven’s whole future vision stories and related books. He wrote a book called A World Out of Time which I highly recommend. Samual Delany’s surreal novels like Nova and Dhalgren. I actually read I Robot I shit you not. And Orson S Card’s Ender’s Game before they were movies (the movie was good and faithful to his book) . And Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (Blade Runner). Clarke’s and Benford’s crazy stories like Sailing Bright Eternity. Let’s face it I’m a weird dude. If you get a chance to read Sailing to Byzantium (not the Yeats poem) by Robert Silverberg I highly recommend. The main character has been revived from our era into some future where he does nothing but accompany an interesting woman to cities we know but they’re so clearly from a future he never knew and he can sense they’re novel to this (he realizes) super being he is with. She changes subtly and sometimes he’s not sure who he’s with. He also realizes he’s only there for entertainment to this “person” who is real and contemporary and he is the anachronism. I wish they’d make a movie out of that one.

    • Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

      Ha! Harlan Ellison. That is one twisted dude.

      Neal Stephenson is a good writer but I didn’t like his recent work Seven Eves too much. But Cryptonomicon, Quicksilver etc based on both fictional and historical characters which covers the age of enlightenment, WWII etc.. About modern thought, technology, etc… Funny characters like Half-cocked Jack. Way better than anything Hollyweird can dream up. Also Snowcrash is killer. And Anathem. Read it all if you have time.

    • rightymouse says:

      I read sci-fi in my late teens, twenties & early thirties. Stuff like “Dune” & Asimov & Heinlein’s books.

      • Octopus says:

        Me, too. Heinlein, Bradbury, Asimov, Clarke and a few of the other prominent authors. Then I got hooked on other things, like detective novels and military history. I graduated with a double major in English Lit and Psych, so I can talk to you about Joyce and the Eliots, George and T.S., if you really want to go there. 😉

        • Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

          Right. You can’t compare a sci fi writer who probably has an engineering degree and a flair for language with say, John Updike. Or Hemingway or Steinbeck. I honestly think Updike was a literary genius. Maybe on par with Shakespeare. What I love about great writers is their ability to make your mind go into “movie mode”. Imagery and thought come together. L Ron Hubbard has been dragged through the mud because of Scientology. But he was another one. He could write in multiple genres and suck you into his world view and thinking. I don’t care what anyone says Battlefield Earth was a kick ass read. Too bad John Travolta turned it into a comically bad movie. I read Dianetics and I’m still torn. Some things in that book ring true. About psychology and whatnot (his enemy) But I can’t help thinking it might have been a giant hoax. Like he was daring himself to see how far his powerful writing ability could go! To invent a theory of psychological thought. And then with Scientology an entire religion! I can’t bring myself to believe he fully understood how dangerous that could be to innocent people. Maybe he gave people more credit than they deserve thinking they can’t possibly be that stupid. I still wonder about Conan Doyle and the Piltdown hoax. Who better than the inventor of Sherlock Holmes to perpetrate such an impish scam? To go beyond your own death, no less. WIN! LOL!

        • Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

          Oh and I forgot to say in my random blatherings that this fact that you studied literature explains a lot about your very funny and deft commentary and posts here. I think it’s a funny small crew we have here. Bashing Chunky is always mission 1 but it’s fun to range around. After all we, all of us thought LGF was a cool thing at one point only to be disillusioned by the crappy headed, character flawed founder. For us this has become a secondary place to play.

          • Octopus says:

            Thanks for the compliment, sir. I enjoy others’ stuff around here, more than my own. I also love Updike’s work. Never got around to reading any of L. Ron’s stuff, even though I had the paperback “Dianetics” on my bookshelf for decades, after picking it up for 25 cents at a book sale. Not sure what happened to it — probably in a box in the basement.

            Some other sci-fi authors came to mind last night, after reading this thread over. Philip K. Dick was a fave. William Gibson. Dan Simmons. Ursula LeGuin. There were others I liked, too. I read most of my sci-fi in high school, and then again in my late-20’s for a few years.

          • Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

    Struck by how young these guys were in the ’70’s — Rickles and Carson were only 47! I’ve got nearly 13 years on them. Reynolds looks like a college kid here, and have you seen him lately? It’s frightening.

    Rickles owned every room he ever walked into. 😆

    • Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

      I loved this. There is also a video on Youtube of Rickles hosting the Tonite Show. It’s bad fidelity unfortunately but still enjoyable. He comes out and doesn’t do the typical monologue. Instead they have a long mic cord for him and he starts harrassing the band first. Then the audience. They might have been planted but it was classic Rickles – un PC and everyone loves it. He flirts with a black girl and a white girl, both gorgeous.

    • rightymouse says:

      Rickles was very complimentary of Carson, who in real life was an ass-hole.

      • Chunk is stuck on the couch and can't get up! says:

        Sinatra too was a total ass in real life. Yet the two seemed to be genuine buddies. The great story Sinatra told where Rickles was romancing some lady in a restaurant and asked Sinatra to come by the table to impress her that he had big show biz friends. When Sinatra comes by the table Rickles berates him for interrupting their dinner. “Frank not now, I’m trying to eat here…” That’s so great.

    Demi Lovato released this song about a week before she nearly died from the not-sober thing. The rumor is it was meth and heroin she was using.

Pills, powder, black tar, whatever, it’s all the same drug, just in different dosages.

    It’s an honest and somber little pop tune, you have to admit. Hope she gets the help she needs — she was sober for six years before her relapse.

You’ve got the big windows to look out and you can track your progress on your phone and zoom in using Google maps. And I liked sleeping and hearing the train horn up front going off through the night knowing it’s someone’s job to keep you safe and sound.

And you sometimes get seated with strangers who are always very friendly and fun because who else rides a train! Someone who’s not in a big hurry. Sometimes you meet Europeans who are just there to get a gander at America and find out just how big it is! We met a lady with her grandson in the food car and he was a very precocious, nice black boy of about seven. He regaled us and entertained us with his talkativeness and observations.

      That’s too bad. I used to like that place. We have a Texas Roadhouse nearby that we used to frequent. But they always play loud tinny music that bugs my wife’s sensitive ears. So we stopped going. But my wife was out of town so I went over there late one night for the first time in like 5 years. I was very pleased. I showed up at like 9:40 when they close at 10. But they were very nice. Ordered the chili which was awesome. And had some kind of burger off the menu that was so good. I actually let the server know how pleased I was and encouraged her to let the chefs/cooks know. I explained that it was just the music that was the issue (they still played loud music) In our mid-50s we go to a lot of places around here but I’ve been wondering lately why do we bother? They tend to suck and charge a lot. There’s a place around here that specializes in Cajun cooking and we went there and it was just clunky heavy fried food. Nothing special. So we tend toward an Asian restaurant and a new Indian place which is great. Oh the Hunanity!
