Can’t Ya Just Feel The Love?


“Desolation Row”, Bob Dylan, (1965)


Election Protests in Oregon Love-In

The Donald stated that he believed the election process was rigged – that certain coastal elites and academics  and their charges unduly influenced the outcomes of elections by processes “not entirely open” and, dare we say, even “illegal”.

Dead voters? Hanging chads? Busing voters to the poles? Transporting ballots to the poles on behalf of voters? Intimidating voters by stationing thugs outside poling stations? Bomb threats and other questionable activities against polling locations? The list is endless.


Election Protests California Love-In

In the aftermath it sure appears that he was right, right down the line. It sure appears from the outburst of all the protests we are seeing via the media (who are blaming it on Trump) in the heart of KoolAide land.

Those same coastal tribes are now so upset that the “riggers” were unable to hijack the process enough to affect the outcome. The “riggees” just ignored the mainstream media meme and turned out in droves to vote for the “Great Satan.” The millions of voters in flyover country just stepped up and told the ruling elites and the academic drones and the media vampires to F.O.D!


Election Protests Texas Love-In

This figurative spit in the eye of the establishment and their minions has driven legions of worshipers of the Great God Tash completely frothing barking mad.

Have you ever noticed how these paragons of womanly liberal virtue always have their mouths wide open? Why do you suppose that is?

orcsSo ladylike … so attractive … so liberated. Just look at it!  Every damned picture of protest! Liberal Women with their mouths WIDE OPEN! Go figure… Such beautiful little orcses …


Election Protests in Georgia Love-In

And of course they have to finish their latte, unfriend every Facebook contact who supported Trump, and ensure that their protest message signs are grossly misspelled in the most lurid fashion.

But then they can immediately turn  to extremes of violence, shootings looting, vandalism,  and rhetoric we have not witnessed since the Chicago Democratic Convention of 1968.


Las Vegas Love-In

This behaviour is their signature sign, their tribal trademark, their leitmotif, by these works shall you know them.

Wherever the Left gather violence and evil soon follow.

Trump has sworn to drain the swamp in Washington, but an important first step would be to close all the morally doubtful schools and universities and remove the academics who run these puppy mills of progressivism and produce these legions of zombies.


A Liberal Love-In

Right now they are especially easy to identify, both the sites and the perpetrators.  Simply take attendance in every lecture hall and close every institution where most  students and professors are absent. After the ground of this weed infested field is plowed up, salt it with a black list ban on any of the perpetrators both student and professorial ever working at any job or receiving benefits of any sort, anywhere, any time, in the good old U.S.A., eh?


More Love for Those who Disagree with Liberals

Who knows? They obviously don’t want to live in the “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”  Maybe they will find employment with Al Jazeera protesting the elections in Iran or Syria? I would actually pay to see THAT video.

That would free up vast amounts of valuable resources and positions for those who want to contribute to the nation, rather than wishing to destroy the custom made tit they have been sucking on all their progressive lives, and which has kept them fat and happy in their self worship at the expense of millions of truly good folks who have had no recourse for 6 decades.

When we look across all the locations of strife and disaster around our modern world, all around our planet, everywhere we see these same faces – Except that in those places they are actually running the show, not losing elections, and it only takes a few moments of observation to see how well that turned out.


Philadelphia Love-In

At any given moment we are only a vote away from the progressive tyranny taking over, The tyranny of self worshiping “I am right no matter what and any one who disagrees with me should be eliminated, right Hillary? OH LOOK! MORE OPEN MOUTHS!!!

Just look at the faces above – see any love there? See any compassion? See any fraternal charity? See any desire for peace on earth? – you GOT it!!! Nothing but hate for anyone and everything which does not agree with their views. Every lovely little unshaven prettily made up young student face just praying their little hearts out for the Liberal Final Solution.

looks-just-like-the-middle-eastRefusing to face this reality doesn’t change anything. We still get the Gulag and the Work Camp at the end of EVERY Liberal road. There is no path to compromise which does not end in a death camp. This is the Liberal solution “The Final Solution” to every view which disagrees with whatever they believe in.


Gestapo Concentration Camp

Every dead person in this little black and white picture would have voted for Donald as the lesser of two weevils, and all the smiling faces above put them there with malice aforethought.

Don’t take my word for it, just browse on over to “Being Liberal” to appreciate the sheer magnitude of this cloaca of vitriol which passes for Liberal “thought”. Just taste and see what Liberals want with every fiber of their being – and they want to do it to you!


Vandals having a Love-In in Portland while demonstrating the inevitable results of all Liberal thought.

They want to destroy everyone who dares to disagree with their point of view. All the millions of “yous” who didn’t vote for Hillary.

All of US! All the millions and millions of bitter clingers, and evil military industrial complexers, and every

policeman, every fireman, every plumber,

Aragorn leads the allies to the Black Gate in an attempt to distract Sauron from seeking out Frodo, Sam and the Ring. But Sauron's army is much larger, and Aragorn is losing the battle. Their hopes rest with Frodo.

Trump supporters find themselves under surprise attack in their peaceful democratic homeland

every pilot, and  surgeon, every electrician, every farmer, every mechanic, every housewife, every member of the military, every gas station owner, every shopkeeper … just think about the sheer magnitude and arrogance of it!

Every living soul in the Grey Tribe that keep their little pink buttocks out of the fire and nosed into their dinner every day of their useless polluting lives need to be eliminated. Well who knew?  And here we thought this was a democracy that prided itself in justice, fairness, and rule of law.

Later Gater … Gotta swamp to drain, eh? (and I’m not even American – although lots of my relations live in flyover country, USA)



Ortona Cimitero Canadese – final resting place for the D-Day Dodgers, right Lady Astor?

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw The torch;

be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow …

Truth – and consequences …

“Over The Hills And Far Away”,  Jon Boden,  from the album “A Folk Song a Day”, 2011. The song is  also the Theme from “Sharp’s Rifles” a series about the Napoleonic Wars in Spain.

Well!  Never, never, never ignore or underestimate  the British Common Man. Napoleon learned the hard way when the “common scum” kicked his Sicilian derriere most thoroughly.

The British voter just blew all the pundits and professionals out of the water. Monte Python could not have done better. I imagine the Knights that go “NEE!” in the bureaucracy and academia are all in a mad scrambling dither about the sky falling. All the talking heads have even less meaningful things to say than usual.

Blather, blather, blather, blather, from “Triumph of Democracy” all around the circle to “Right Wing Haters” until perhaps there is so much hot air blowing ’round that they will all physically follow their vaporous thoughts into zero G. Should be interesting and amusing as well.

Contesting the “Triumph of Democracy” crowd, we have the predictable Liberal Progressive freak-out on the triumph of “far right parties,” , the “low information Trump voters” which is just SO Lame-Stream. Fifty-two percent of the British electorate cannot possibly be “Far Right Haters”, or if they were as described they might have accomplished something by now. But the left always calls everyone else “haters” when in fact they have been historically the “Greatest Haters” (ever hear of NAZIs and Communists? Lefties every one of them).

torches_and_pitchforksIn our current culture such terms are meaningless. There is always populist discontent with opposite things — with too much taxes, and not enough welfare – ever has it been so – and the worst are the Progressives blaming every one else for being “racists” while continuously thumping their own extreme version of racism upon which they depend for their voter support

But wait!  This isn’t over.  It is probably going to take at least a couple of years to untangle this little divorce and it will not be a pleasant experience for anyone, least of all for those who voted to leave. This will make the dark days pre-Thatcher look like an Anglican Church picnic. I just can’t wait for the trainloads of inked and electroned, scribery (Huh?) about it all being caused by the racism and hate springing full blown and unprovoked from the breast of the nasty proles, the common unwashed working man, incited by the evil right wing haters, It must be Bush’s fault!  Everything is Bush’s fault. Except for what is the fault of the evil Koch Brothers. Riiiight …  The Brights just couldn’t possibly have had anything to do with it! Everything they did was for our own good, right?

“Fanfare For The Common Man”, Aaron Copland & The London Symphony Orchestra, from the album “Copland Super Hits”, 1994.

So, what we are seeing happen here is the impact of Truth on the fantasies of the Intellectuals and Brights, the Progressive managers currently running our economic and political world, who sincerely believe their own BS. Unfortunately for their fantasies, “Truth” matters, “Facts” matter, and you can never trust “voters” to be “sensible”. Hence all the effort put into de-fanging voters and the voting process so that it can be controlled, and “sensible” thinkers can prevail “for our own good” of course.

When poisons become fashionable they do not cease to killThe managers and academics just don’t connect with “The People” because they are not “people”. They don’t understand all the “little people”, the ants they see from their upper floor office windows, and they could care less what the “little people” think, feel and believe, because the of course the managers and academics know best. For a lucid example of just how the left regards the “little people” look no further than this article in the magazine “Foreign Affairs“.

There’s a good read here about “Populist Rage”  and “Right Wing Haters”. It’s a sign of the times, this article is. Foreign Affairs Magazine used to be a fair and impartial venue reporting on international politics when, 30 or 40 years ago, I used to read it. I read it a lot back then, I read it a lot when I was a questioning teen.

This particular article is by one  JONATHAN HOPKIN who is an Associate Professor of Comparative Politics at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Now we all know that “Associate” indicates that the Illuminati at the London School of Economics don’t feel that Jonathan quite measures up yet. He may yet make it to full professorship if he is successful in kissing enough butt over the next decade. Or, like an infamous alumni called Pierre he can always run for Prime Minister in Canada if he can’t make it at the university.

hopkin_brexit_rtx2gje2Anyway, here we go  “… tensions over the United Kingdom’s Brexit campaign should have culminated with a referendum this Thursday on whether to leave or remain in the European Union. Instead, it peaked prematurely with the tragic murder of Jo Cox, a pro-EU Labour member of Parliament, who was brutally shot and stabbed last week by a man close to a British extremist anti-immigration group…”

Well GEE you left lib weenie! That same logic makes you close to the murdering Gestapo or the NKVD or maybe the KGB? Ever hear of the terms “Sympathizer”, or “Running-Dog”, how about “Useful Idiot”? And yes, being shot or stabbed does indeed tend to be “brutal”, does it not? So is cutting up babies in the womb. Get used to it!  Soon you will be writing in favour of doing it (stabbing) to seniors and handicapped folks. Get over yourself!  At least TRY to be consistent!

And since guns of all sorts account for only about 3% of murders it does seem that the majority of these events (97%) employ the much more brutal use of knives, fists and feet which seem to be the tools of choice for most folks when offing those one disagrees with.

Why does the left deplore the “brutal murder” of alleged adults but encourage the brutal murder of defenseless children in exactly the same manner? Why? Just wondering?  Anyone? Anyone?

Oh well, maybe we should ban knives? Or Fists? Or boots?  No, no, no, ban –  “Assault Boots” – which would be any boot that was black with cleated soles, eh?

Hell! Even the Pope is on board with this: “Pope Francis has said the result of the U.K.’s referendum to leave the European Union reflects the “will of the people” and that there is now a “great responsibility” to ensure the well being of people in the U.K. and peaceful coexistence on continental Europe …”.  Of course, Francis is also on record as saying that “most Catholic Marriages are invalid” so there is something of a credibility gap in evidence where he is concerned. Is the Pope Catholic?  I don’t know anymore.

So why is the decision of 52% of British Voters to vote to leave the E.U. cast as somehow related to the murder of 1 left wing politician? Of course, there is no evidence of media bias at all, is there? Well lets see where we go with this slant:


1972 – The Troubles; Battle at Springmartin – A car bombing outside a crowded pub in Belfast sparks a two-day gun battle involving the Provisional IRA

“… It was the first political killing of a British politician since the end of the Troubles, a turbulent era of conflict in Northern Ireland, and it has led many to wonder how a stable country such as the United Kingdom could lose its head over what is essentially membership in a trading bloc.

(Seriously, are you stoned???? The Brexit referendum is like the Northern Ireland conflict???  Were you even alive then?? How is it possible to make that kind of a parallel unless you are willfully smearing the “Leave” voters?)

Answering that question requires reflecting on how the country grew so divided in the first place. Since the beginning, Brexit has pitted younger, more affluent, and cosmopolitan urban Britons against the older, poorer, and less educated ones in the rural and postindustrial parts of the country.

It is this same clash—the elites versus the so-called proletariat—that has fueled the resurgence of extreme right parties across Europe, as well as in the United States. In the United Kingdom, these voters are angry at their financial instability, stagnant or declining living standards, and loss of jobs to emerging economies. And they have blamed it on the migrants arriving on their shores…”  when in fact it is ALL caused by leftist social and economic policies.

And there you have it all in a nutshell – the politics of class, division, and racism in action, always the Progressives strong suite. It’s all the fault of those poor uneducated slobs in the rural and post-industrial countryside. Why stick to the facts when you can create a dramatic fictional story about your enemies (aka propaganda – Mr. Goebbels would be so proud) that all your Rainbow cronies and fellow members of N.I.C.E. will welcome and applaud. After all, what matter the alleged thoughts and realities of we knuckle dragging neanderthals here in fly-over country, clinging to our guns and religion. Sigh, so much brains, so little sense.

Another Excellent article here, which we ignore at our peril. The Truth matters, regardless of the opinions and pontifications of the talking heads and celebs, secular AND religious, the Progressives everywhere and in all professions, who are the walking, talking, zombie enforcers of the tyranny of relativism under which we toil and prostitute ourselves for a pittance, yes, selling out for a pittance when we have daily access to Divinely gifted treasure beyond all earthly value. Pity. Pity the poor souls, Pray for the poor souls.

“Ladies in Lavender”, Joshua Bell, from the album “the Essential Joshua Bell”, 2005

As read in the article linked to above,

It is, to be Platonic about this – and why not, when discussing the transcendentals? – as if we had heard it before, or seen something before, even if perhaps we hadn’t heard or seen. The worldly may dismiss this as a kind of déjà vu, and turn for an explanation to, say, pharmacology. But even the most confirmed worldling will puzzle, when it happens to him.

“Maybe it is possible to do or be good. Maybe there is such a thing as beauty. Maybe truth is something that can be known. Stranger things have happened.”

Imagine that!  True beauty, doing your best, doing good for no other reason than to be doing your best and doing good. No pay, no photo op, no votes, no earthly reward.
