“Rev. Jeremiah Wright at MLK Breakfast: Tea Party Is ‘2.0 Upgrade of Lynch Mobs'”

Which, I guess it could be worse, coming from Obama’s spiritual adviser. I mean, imagine if the filthy Jews started joining with the constitutional fetishists instead of sticking reliably to the liberal plantation?  Then it would really be a movement worthy of ovens and work camps.  Chickens coming home to roost and all that.  “Chickens” being the Reverend’s choice of metaphor, not mine.

Billy Ayers and some of Obama’s friends from the neighborhood could handle the logistics of the clean-up.  After which?  Nirvana!

Not so much a racial cleansing as an ideological one.  Which is morally permissible for the Greater Good.   Just in case you think about bringing up any stupid Hitler analogies.

Stick to Mao and Stalin.  Those guys had it right. Though their methods were a bit sloppy, and the whole military motif they decorated themselves with were too 20th-century modernist for contemporary tastes.

  1. He’s only saying that because Obama’s chickens are coming home to roost.

  2. Worse, people might actually believe him and think that the original lynch mobs and Jim Crow groups were from the conservative side of the table.

    History isn’t a favored subject in schools anymore, much less truth. Instead they get Fairness and Social Justice.

  3. LMC, how is Sonny doing at West Point?

  4. - If your plan is for 8 years, get as much Socialism/legal theft done as possible while the gravy train is rollin’.

    – The hypothetical hes not goig to get into.

    – Call me an incurable cynic, but I would bet the reason for the Jersey mambo is advertizing revenue. In other words the fans don’t mean shit in the grand scheme of things as usual, and if the SB has to be played in a blizzard, so what, its what the ad buyers want.

  5. *chuckle*…..I always do a double take when you do that Leigh. My youngest is named Sonny also.

  6. If I had a little racist box in my pocket that would publically and viciously murder people that looked different than me based on trumped-up charges, then one day I clicked “Accept” and the new version did nothing but complain about high taxes, I’d be pissed.

    I guess the Rev is an Apple user.

  7. Sorry leigh, didn’t see that. He’s doing fine. They’re in the “gray period” so he’s miserable, but Plebes are supposed to be miserable, right? He also lost three points for Gryffindor, so everyone’s mad at him.

  8. congrats on having a son at West Point, LMC.

  9. I’ve gotten some odd looks from people when I tell them Hitler was a piker compared to Mao and Stalin.

  10. The thing about lynch mobs is that they lynch people.

    Who exactly are they lynching then, you dumb son of a bitch? Is not voting for people and running against them the same as lynching? It’s like saying that roller skating is roman gladiator fighting 2.0. No, it’s fucking not. Not even if you squint. There are more differences than similarities. Suasion needs to avoid becoming an absurd parody of itself.

  11. I’ve got a mild itch on my back. Unfortunately, it’s the new Yellowstone supervolcano 2.0. Seriously dudez! Danger! OMG!

  12. I’m glad to hear he’s doing well. Just reassure him it gets better, LMC.

    BBH, sorry! I call everyone’s kids Sonny unless they have previously stated their names. Did your Sonny decide about culinary school?

  13. Imagine (I know it’s hard) finding Jeremiah Wright a fascinating and inspiring man. What is that like? I’d suggest it’s like Jeremiah Wright himself, for he has an intimate fascination with himself, as we can see. But imagine being impressed by such a creature. What lowly state from which to begin to find any uplift in that? And yet, the Americans (who surely begin from a lowly state) must not be permitted to see. Such glories cannot be permitted.

  14. I bet the Nazis started out asking for lower taxes.

    I believe high-tech lynch mob is the intellectual property of Clarence Thomas.

  15. Remember why the lynchings happened?

    Because all the white people knew — KNEW — that every black man spent all the live-long day thinking about how he might rape himself a white woman.

    Those people aren’t like us, see. They don’t have control over their animal urges. Which, given their jungle bloodlines, are more animal and more urgent than ours. You keep an eye on those young bucks, else they’ll corner your wives and sisters and daughters and mothers and start a-rippin’ off the bodices…

    Let us draw a curtain over this obscene development to protect the delicate sensibilities of the fairer sex…

    Don’t you let them deny it. Any colored man will deny to your face that he’s got rape on his mind, but don’t you believe him. We know what he’s thinking and we know what he’ll do first chance he gets.

    *****

    The proggs “know” what hateful bigots we are, too, and there’s no defense against their accusations. There can be no defense, because they want us gone, by hook or by crook, and our innocence cannot be allowed to thwart their purposes.

  16. Remember why the lynchings happened?

    Because all the white people knew — KNEW — that every black man spent all the live-long day defenseless and cut off from help.

    FTFY. You wanna know why the Tea Party frightens and infuriates these proggtards so much? It’s because they know that a well-armed bunch of neighbors looking out for one another is a force they cannot defeat.

  17. Folks* love to talk about lynchings as if they were happening up until last Saturday.

    Most times, it isn’t mentioned that a lot of white folks, male and female and Jews in particular, were lynched, as well. It also gets left out that many, not all of course (boilerplate condemnation of vigilante justice here) were guilty of the crimes of which they were accused.

    I guess that doesn’t fit the Narrative™.

    *as prezbo likes to say

  18. help yourselves to extra commas above.

  19. leigh, I’m kind of surprised leftists aren’t fans of “vigilante justice.” Vigilantes seem to be a rather democratic bunch, don’t you think?

  20. They would have been very much in favor of “vigilantes” rioting and wrecking after that “white Hispanic” was acquitted on the murder of that poor little black boy who only wanted hisself some Skittles…

    The fact that vigilantes were the ones who kept law and order when such groups ran wild in times past would completely escape them, what with History only starting in 1968.

    “Protecting the border when the government won’t”? Racism, pure and simple. “Rioting and looting and deadly assault”? It’s a cultural thing, you wouldn’t understand…

  21. Oh they are, Blake. They’d kill us all given half a chance. (cf) Andrew “Get out of MY state!!!) Cuomo.

  22. Elizabeth “The Anchoress” Scalia just Tweeted this: Carthaginians sacrificed own children.

    It’s a chilling article. It appears that adults would ask the gods for a blessing, promising ahead of time that they’d sacrifice a child in return. The urns containing the tiny charred bones would say “the gods ‘heard my voice and blessed me’.”

    Diodorus even said that some citizens who bought children from poor people and reared them specially for sacrifice believed misfortunes had resulted because they had not sacrificed their own offspring.

    Here’s the kicker at the end:

    “The feeling that some ultimate taboo is being broken is very strong. It was striking how often colleagues, when they asked what I was working on, reacted in horror and said, ‘Oh no, that’s simply not possible, you must have got it wrong.'”

    “We like to think that we’re quite close to the ancient world, that they were really just like us – the truth is, I’m afraid, that they really weren’t.”

    Lady? At least the ancients recognized that the gods were demanding something that was truly precious.

    We enlightened folks don’t even have the decency to use burial urns: into the medical waste bucket and everything is ducky.

    55 million times since 1973. That’s Mao-level slaughter.

  23. Ah, so Drum, you’re thinking in terms of what vigilantism actually was, not what the progressive rewrite of history has made it out to be.

  24. The Old Testament speaks to civilizations “passing their children through the fire to Baal” if my memory serves me correctly.

  25. The Old Testament speaks to civilizations “passing their children through the fire to Baal” if my memory serves me correctly.

    Yup.

    When the Israelites imitated them, that’s when Jehovah threatened them with destruction (and later carried through). He’d never asked them for child sacrifice — illustrating that point very clearly by stopping Abraham and furnishing a ram in Isaac’s place — and yet they go a’whoring after gods that DO?

    How perverse is THAT?

    People think the OT God got bent out of shape because the people were asking for rain from the wrong idol, but no: the idolatrous gods demanded child sacrifice and ritual prostitution. Sick, sick business. At that point, destroying them all was the kindest thing he could do.

  26. Sorry, Reverend is it, for a real-life, modern-day in-you-face lynch mob on a national scale look to your role in the harassment of George Zimmerman.

    I pulled that out of my butt, I have no idea if, Reverend is it, had any role at all and I don’t care to look [+”Reverend Wright” +”George Zimmerman] blah.

  27. See the thing is, if lynch mobs had just supported candidates in the political process instead of murdering people. then they wouldn’t have been hated or viewed as a menace.

    This stupid hateful lying hack jackass is condemning people and calling them criminals for OBEYING THE LAW and not using mob violence to accomplish their goals.

  28. Oh, from now on it’s not “the knockout game”. It’s “the knockout or get cut real bad game”. People are carrying quick-draw knives because of this.

  29. Just reassure him it gets better, LMC.

    The hell it does. It just gets different.

    USMA 1980

  30. Well, you would know better than I, Richard.

  31. *shrugs* Well, unless you’ve been selected for special treatment, you learn to go with the flow. Everyone else is sucking it up, so there’s really no reason why you can’t too.

    Or as I used to say: “West Point: A great place to either be about to go to or to have been from.”

    Or as others used to say: “West Point: 40,000 trying to get in, 4,000 trying to get out.”

    I got a million of them, each funnier than the last if you say them in the correct order.

  32. D’jall see the Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb tweet that as long as the US is going to front a Kindergarten President, they’re going to continue bringing the JuniorVarsity death?

    Possibly not, since AQiM doesn’t tweet. They do kill though, and you can bet they’re thinking the rest of it.

  33. Those are pretty good, Richard. All the war stories I know are second hand.

  34. Carthaginians and Canaanites are more or less the same people.

    In case anyone was wondering.

  35. Well placed sdferr!

  36. Ernst, yes, that’s an interesting tidbit. Thanks.

  37. Carthaginians and Canaanites are more or less the same people.

    <carson>I did not know that</carson>

  38. Canaanites are the hillbilly cousins of the Phoenicians.

    generally speaking.

  39. Well, then.

    Mystery solved:

    As readers may have deduced by my absence from National Review Online and my termination of our joint representation, there have been a few differences between me and the rest of the team. The lesson of the last year is that you win a free-speech case not by adopting a don’t-rock-the-boat, keep-mum, narrow procedural posture but by fighting it in the open, in the bracing air and cleansing sunlight of truth and justice.

    h/t Blazing Cat Fur

  40. OT: I’ve concluded that Roger L. Simon of PJMedia is an idiot.

    That appears to be the one issue militating against a coming Republican majority, but it is an exceptionally potent one because it is used, fairly or not[!], to paint the right as bigots. And young people, again not surprisingly, don’t want to hang with bigots — so the whole house of cards goes down.

    [….]

    While I respect and recognize people’s religious traditions, what concerns me is this — this issue will be used effectively as a wedge to sabotage a whole lot of change at a time when it couldn’t be more necessary It dovetails perfectly with the mythological “war on women,” which we all will be sure to hear about incessantly.

    … I have to say in all candor that political opposition to same-sex marriage is the Achilles Heel of the right going into 2016. Social conservatives who intend to make a serious issue out of it should realize that the fallout from their views could adversely affect all of us in a catastrophic way.

    No one is going to be happy here. SoCons who continue to press this issue on the political (not the personal or religious) stage have to realize that they are damaging many of us who have other concerns domestic and foreign, many of which we would probably agree on more easily.

    In other words, Democrats are going to make an issue of it, but shut up anyways, because that’s a proven strategy for winning!

    Just like John McCain and Mitt Romney.

  41. Keep your heads down, your mouths shut and toe the line Jesuslanders! Don’t you know we’re on the verge of a small government revolution here?

    As long as small government isn’t labeled racist, sexist, bigoted or homophobic. In which case, fair or not, we’re fucked.

  42. Upon closer reading, I need to revise my opinion. Roger L. Simon of PJ media is a fucking idiot.

    This is a great moment. A seriously smaller government is a real possibility with electoral victories in 2014 and 2016. Let’s not jeopardize them by emphasizing an issue [i.e., gay marriage] more properly, and unquestionably more successfully, dealt with in the private [!] realm.

    Score up another win for Juergen Habermas and the Frankfurt School.

  43. ” I have to say in all candor that political opposition to same-sex marriage abortion is the Achilles Heel of the right going into 2016.”

    This is the flip side which will also be thrown out.

    See Wendy, flying high on un-happy thoughts and “fairy” dust.

  44. you can bake eggs in the avocado

  45. I’ve concluded that Roger L. Simon of PJMedia is an idiot.

    I can’t agree. He just now started following me on Twitter.

  46. you can bake eggs in the avocado

    or in a partially scooped-out baked potato, which you carefully wrap in foil and set in the coals until the egg is cooked.

    I’m sure bacon bits and shredded cheese would not go amiss, nor a dash of salsa.

  47. so you bake the potato first and then bake it again for to cook the eggs?

    i like the avocado thing better cause it’s got less steps

  48. “Well, then. Mystery solved:”

    Without Steyn I now have no reason whatsoever to go to NRO and certainly no reason to subscribe to their Dead Tree Edition as they very aptly call it.

    It is amazing to me how the bottom fell out of that “conservative” magazine in 2007 and how since then it just keeps crumbling, eroding, and evaporating. They have a blog called ‘the corner’ which is ironic because they long ago filed down the last corner with the exorcism of Derbyshire for the dangerous crime of unseemly out-group-think.

    They should change the name of the blog to The Harmless Pudding and the name of the magazine to “Fuck You Buckley! No One Invites Us to Brunch Anymore And it’s All Your Fault. We Used to Be King Makers. Now We Have to Keep Our Big Fat Heads Down When We Hear Cars Passing In The Street, Oh What a World! What a World! ”

    NR is nothing but a rotting toe on the foot of conservatism, brought low by long exposure to the chill winds of intellectual frostbite.

  49. Whom the gods would destroy they first make Rich Lowry Editor in Chief of.

  50. I left a 2nd sorta draft in the comments on Steyns last article from Dec. 20

    “I’m a bit bitter and very disappointed.

    Without Steyn I now have no reason whatsoever to go to NRO and certainly no reason to subscribe to their Dead Tree Edition as they now very aptly call it.

They have a blog called ‘the corner’ which is ironic because they long ago filed down the last corner with the exorcism of Derbyshire for the dangerous crime of unseemly out-group-think. Talk to him? Nah, Toss him before he infects the others. Run away! Look at how NOT LIKE HIM we all are! We get big points for that right? We are classy now right?

    NR should change the name of the blog to ‘The Harmless Pudding’ and the name of the magazine to “Darn You Buckley! No One Invites Us to Brunch Anymore and It’s All Your Fault. We Used to Be King Makers. Now We Have to Keep Our Big Fat Heads Down When We Hear Cars Passing In The Street, Lest We Be Taunted. Oh What a World! What a World! ” Or maybe “National Retreat” is pithier.

    NR is one of many rotting toes on the foot of conservatism, brought low by long exposure to the chill winds of intellectual frostbite. I am ashamed to have ever taken it seriously or been a fan of it. I am appalled to see the wretched barren shore it has finally washed up to.

    Good riddance, if you can manage even that. “

  51. Stick to Mao and Stalin. Those guys had it right. Though their methods were a bit sloppy, and the whole military motif they decorated themselves with were too 20th-century modernist for contemporary tastes.

    Evidently not, at least according to the clowns at Buzzfeed: 29 Astounding Soviet Propaganda Images Promoting Racial Equality
    Whoa. The Soviet Union got racial equality right before America?

  52. Ein, racial equality is easy to create when you kill hope and in the process create the worlds largest population of drunkards.

  53. Good lord, Ernst, I can almost see Simon nervously fretting over his keyboard, jabbing at it with quick pecks, not unlike a mother hen when feeding.

  54. Why hate and fear each other when you can hate and fear your local party boss?

  55. Whom the gods would destroy they first make Rich Lowry Editor in Chief of.

    Not sure Richard Brookhiser would have been any better.

  56. Avocado and eggs?

  57. The only one I read over there is VDH and he can be found in other places.

  58. The Reds also had amazing propaganda art promoting hard work, economic strength, military might, and the crushing of the West. Somebody should explain to the Buzzards that it’s not very hard to make posters.

  59. Mark Steyn has parted ways with the National Reconnaissance Office?

  60. Speaking of propaganda, what fresh hell is this ?

  61. That’s been fixed, Eingang.

  62. That cover ought to be the lead off for every GOP commercial as of November 5 this year, all the way through to October 31, 2016. Even if Hillary drops out.

    There’s also this one:

  63. McGehee, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of Mark Steyn.

  64. Planet Hillary and pikachump, separated at birth?

  65. I do like the fellow at NR who writes about economics. Michael Tanner.

  66. That is pretty frightening, Pablo.

    What is more frightening is that somebody at the NYT thought of it, and someone else thought the cover was a good idea. Even more frightening is the people who will see it and think it is a good idea.

  67. It’s the vast fright-wing conspiracy at work again.

  68. At NRO clicking on Levin’s “latest” brings up a piece from 2009. In the Levin archive they have pieces only through 7/29/2010.

  69. I’d like to think that the Tea Party has matured somewhat since the big 2010 uprising. Could we get Rev. Wright to call us LynchMob 2.1?

  70. “Will white people get all the good weed?”

    Does it matter? It will be assumed that white people do indeed get the best weed.

  71. I spray Round-Up on weeds, and then they’re good.

    Wait, what?

  72. Why you all call it weed? Pot not good enough for you because pots are BLACK?

    Dog Whistle!

  73. OT: I can’t be the only one looking at the scenes coming out of Kiev and imagining Obama/Jarrett saying, “We need a way to get what we want without THAT happening!” I suppose I won’t be certain until I see Ramirez’ next cartoon…

  74. “A man is not a pot”—Confucius

  75. “I am not a potted plant.” –Fawn Hall’s lawyer while testifying before Congress, IIRC

  76. No ones student ID looks that good

  77. Of course, I never thought anyone could take a good mugshot picture either and then Beiber got arrested.

  78. Beiber is an elf. He somehow achieved the D&D nerd’s impossible dream. I mean yeah he’s a dingy elf (dokkalfar) but he still made it. He didn’t become a freaky changeling thing like Michael Jackson did.

  79. Beckel kept insisting that Beiber needs rehab. Nope.

    He needs a spanking and then bootcamp.

  80. He didn’t become a freaky changeling thing like Michael Jackson did.

    Bieber is 19. MJ was a black kid rocking an afro at 19. It’s early yet.

  81. If Roger Simon is genuinely more concerned about the anti-abortion plank than Chuck Schumer unctuously, but clearly, and nakedly proposing laws aimed at the momentary disenfranchisement of the Tea Party, because they win too much, and they keep the republicans from rolling over as often as desired, then “idiot” doesn’t quite begin to cover the nature of his affliction.

    Simon is nuts, bewitched, hexed, under a glamour, and chasing motes and fairies through the dark hungry woods.

    Best not to listen to his ranting and babbling anymore. He’s seeing more angels that that fake sign language translator at the Mandela memorial service.

    It’s like Luther is on the beach, clinking his bottles together calling the warriors to come out and play-ee-aaay and Roger Simon is still wondering what is wrong with the warriors that everyone is so willing to think that they killed Cyrus at his rally in Central Park.
