#Occupy — They’re not very bright, are they?

February 12, 2012

If you’re going to protest a minion of the Evil One-Percent(tm) –in this case, a state government official concerned about the integrity of the elections he supervises– you might try protesting in the right room

I saw a very funny example of the ineptness of the Occupy protesters today. I was at CPAC to speak on a panel on voter fraud and the 2012 election with John Fund, Catherine Engelbrecht, and David Norcross. We got to our ballroom as the prior session was winding up. It was being hosted by David Keene of the NRA and the panelists were talking about criminal-justice reform and the Second Amendment.

As the panelists were speaking, two Occupy protesters walked up to the stage and unrolled a big banner attacking Kris Kobach, the secretary of state of Kansas. Kobach is a very smart lawyer who worked at the Bush Justice Department and was elected secretary of state in 2010. He has raised the ire of liberals because of his support for common-sense election reforms like voter-ID and proof-of-citizenship requirements for individuals registering to vote, both of which were passed by the Kansas legislature.

(…)

There was only one problem for the protesters — they were in the wrong room (LOL!). Kobach’s panel was going on elsewhere in the hotel and he was not on the panel that David Keene was moderating or the one that was about to start. When Keene told the protesters that, everyone in the room started laughing at them and they sheepishly folded up their banner and left. They apparently never made it to the actual room where Kobach was speaking.

Kobach, it turns out, was speaking in a different room, on an immigration panel. (He did crucial work on Arizona’s SB 1070, for example.)

And they want us to let them lead us to a better world? As the great Homer Simpson would say, “D’oh!”

Up-twinkles for Dear Leader: an Occupier eulogizes Kim Jong-Il’s North Korea

December 19, 2011

Ah, Dear Leader, Sun of Socialism, Great Man Who Descended From Heaven!! (1) How it must warm the cockles of your Stalinist heart to see how your juche message of “more brandy,” kidnapping filmmakers to make movies for you, drug smuggling, and counterfeiting resonates with the followers you left behind… especially in Occupy Wall Street.

While the following video was taken last October, it’s yet a fitting tribute to the memory of the sociopathic midget visionary leader whose objectives meshed so well with those of the Occupiers… so far as they can articulate them or even figure out what they are.

In it, a man who lived a large part of his life in Soviet Russia asks a couple of Occu-dolts what the difference between North and South Korea is. Their answer? There’s no unemployment and everyone is paid a fair wage in the North! Income equality! Yes!

These, my friends, are the fighters for the ninety-nine percent:

Of course, it’s easy to have full employment when everyone is a slave of the state given a job by the government, and there’s no doubt that those “fair wages” enabled everyone in the DPRK to knock down $700,000 of cognac per year. Such is the nature of the worker’s paradise. Pay no attention to the narrator’s mention of cannibalism, or the vicious imperialist rumors of mass starvation (which may be happening again). A vast gulag of prison camps that hold multiple generations of whole families? LIES!!

Because, like, you know… Dude! Socialism is just fairer. Okay?

Of course, we shouldn’t be surprised at these useful idiots; the phenomenon isn’t new. Many progressives in 1920s and 1930s America thought Bolshevism and Italian Fascism offered useful lessons that could be applied in America to make a better society (2). Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer for his fawning coverage of Stalin’s Russia. The 1960s anti-war movement and the 1980s “nuclear freeze” campaign were nurtured and used by the KGB and allied intelligence agencies. And in the current war with jihadist Islam, way too many people think they’re serving a noble cause by siding with the enemy.

So, don’t be surprised; stupid often covers for evil.

Footnotes:
(1) Really, you have to look at the list of titles bestowed on Kim Jong-Il. What it says about Kim’s egomania is both  screamingly funny and pathetic. I’m sure our fourth-greatest president has it bookmarked for future reference. (h/t J.S. Treviño)
(2) And not just low-level flunkies. General Hugh S. Johnson, a member of FDR’s “brain trust” and the head of the National Recovery Administration, so admired Mussolini and Italian fascism that he asked that copies of a tract by Benito’s favorite economist be distributed to the Cabinet.

A governor turns the table on #OWS — UPDATED, fresh video

November 30, 2011

The Occupiers all like to claim they’re into mass democracy: general assemblies, voting by up and down-twinkles, free speech, and all that jazz. And all while making obnoxious prats of themselves. Prats who don’t understand a thing about real democratic societies… but I digress.

Anyway, it shouldn’t be surprising that I took a special joy in seeing Colorado Governor Hickenlooper (D!) and the crowd he had come to address use democracy against the Occupiers.

Enjoy:

Major up-twinkles.

UPDATE: The original video was suppressed after a copyright claim by an Occupier named Michael Clifton. Hey, Mikey! Other people had cameras, too:

Thanks to Moe Lane, who observes…

Suuuuure.  Now they care about private property.  Doesn’t information want to be free, Michael Clifton?

Heh.

Bill Whittle: character and virtue matters

November 27, 2011

Happy end of the Thanksgiving weekend, folks. I’m sure we’re all excited to go back to work, now. 

Since this is my first post in a few days, I thought “What better way to ease back into the blogging groove than Bill Whittle’s most recent episode of Afterburner?”

Glad you agree.

It’s an interesting discussion of virtue and discipline as components of character and their role in our founding, the assumption that private virtue and self-regulating discipline made our system of self-government possible. And that their decline (which really began after the passing of the Revolutionary generation and the growth of popular democracy in the age of Jackson) lead to the growth of the State and the efforts to impose virtue and regulate behavior from above, via legislation.

And that brings to mind a pertinent quote from Cicero:

“The more laws, the less justice.”

And, perhaps, the less virtue.

I’m not sure I agree 100-percent with Bill’s arguments and examples, but that would be more in the way of a quibble, rather than substantial disagreement.

Regardless, his points are worth thinking about.

Los Angeles to #OccupyLA : “Please take this land in tribute and don’t hurt us!”

November 22, 2011

When the Vandals looted Rome in 455 A.D., they at least had to capture the city first before sacking it. Their successors here in Los Angeles, however, don’t have to go to such trouble.

We’ll just pay tribute, instead:

Los Angeles officials have offered Occupy L.A. protesters a package of incentives that includes downtown office space and farmland in an attempt to persuade them to abandon their camp outside of City Hall, according to several demonstrators who have been in negotiations with the city.

The details of the proposal were revealed Monday during the demonstration’s nightly general assembly meeting by Jim Lafferty, an attorney with the National Lawyers Guild who has been advocating on behalf of the protest since it began seven weeks ago.

Lafferty said city officials have offered protesters a $1-a-year lease on a 10,000-square-foot office space near City Hall. He said officials also promised land elsewhere for protesters who wish to farm, as well as additional housing for the contingent of homeless people who joined the camp.

A spokesman for the mayor would not comment on the proposal, saying only: “We are in negotiations with organizers of Occupy L.A.”

Los Angeles has been one of the most accommodating cities in the nation for its Occupy encampment.

No kidding. Even the pusillanimous Mayor Quan of Oakland finally had enough and sent in the cops.

But Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa (he of the many affairs and illegal comped Laker tickets) has a spine made from the purest rubber, so that he can be even more of a wimp than Jean Quan or Michael Bloomberg: he won’t just refuse to enforce the law, he’s willing to give the Occupiers what they want — free stuff! (Okay, a dollar a year. Who’s quibbling?)

Now that’s a leader for you. We have to be tolerant, never mind the brandishing of weapons, public lewdness, and sexual assaults:

Five people at the Occupy L.A. encampment have been charged with separate crimes, including a man who allegedly exposed himself and commited a sex act in front of a child, officials said Tuesday.

Angele Chaidez, 21, faces one count of lewd conduct and one count of indecent exposure for allegedly exposing himself and masturbating in front of several people, including children, Friday on the south steps of City Hall, said prosecutors with the L.A. city attorney’s office.

That same day, Zachary Isaac, 21, allegedly entered a woman’s tent and called her “Satan.” After the woman asked Isaac to leave, he allegedly punched her in the face with a closed fist. Prosecutors charged him with one count of battery resulting in injury.

Robert Holland Jr., 31, allegedly waved a knife at another person on Halloween, then resisted arrest, prosecutors said. He was charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of brandishing a deadly weapon, one count of disturbing the peace and one count of resisting arrest.

And let’s not forget blatant Jew-hatred.

But, no matter. “Free speech” is all that matters, forget the rights of the public to feel safe on public property. Forget the rights of small and micro-businessmen to earn a livelihood and who are seeing their businesses wrecked by Occupy LA. Forget everything else but the right of peaceful Occupiers to impose their will on everyone else.

Or else.

Okay, perhaps I’m being too hard on Mayor Villaraigosa. After all, he really is trying to do something about Occupy LA.

It’s called “appeasement.”

#Occupy fighting for the 99% in Wisconsin, by bribing children with cigarettes?

November 21, 2011

Sure looks that way, doesn’t it? The campaign to recall Governor Walker (1) thought it had found some neat allies in the Occupy movement, so they apparently joined forces to occupy a bridge (and freeze their tushes off) and circulate recall petitions, paying people in cigarettes for their signatures.

That’s what it looks like, anyway.

Of course, bribing with smokes seems to be something of  a hobby with Wisconsin Democrats.

Footnote:
(1) You know, the guy who signed into law needed reforms that are actually doing some good for his state. Can’t have that, now.
