I am currently reading John Nolte’s article on 11 reasons the Left has not won the Culture War at Breitbart.com. Simply reading this is making my day because I love to laugh in the morning. Millions of conservatives have likely read this today and more than a thousand have commented. Those comments will be covered by Fred Schwartz later in the day.

Nolte begins with same sex marriage which I see as a full faith and credit legal issue not a moral and religious one. I don’t think, however, that any shop owner has a right to refuse service to a gay couple anymore than they have the right to refuse service to a person based on their race, religion, gender or disability. The author feels that the “voice of the people” has been tossed out in favor of the rulings of “activist judges.” In a bizarre twist John Nolte points to a rise in “Christian entertainment” as proof that Americans really do not want people they do not know of the same sex to get married. The singular example is the film “Heaven is for Real” which has grossed nothing yet because the film is to be released today. Nolte’s point is that Sony TriStar Pictures has decided to release the film on a Wednesday in 2,417 theaters. This film and others like it are one point Nolte shows as proof that on the topic of same sex marriage the Right is winning. I will make a claim here: Heaven is for Real will not make more money between its premiere and the end of the box office weekend than “Transcendence” will make from its opening until Sunday night on a theater by theater basis.

The next Culture War issue is the legalization of marijuana. Both Washington state and Colorado have legalized the weed most notorious to conservatives and more states are moving to decriminalize small amounts. Most recently the state of Maryland did just that becoming the first state south of the Dixon-Line to decriminalize pot. Fourteen other states and the District of Columbia have also done so. Nolte does not address any of the medical reasons for pot use or even recreational ones as a justification for a victory here in the Culture war. Instead he states that abortion rights activists are on their heels quoting an article on Breitbart.com no less about a poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus regarding abortion rights. The Gallup Polling Service numbers show that those who view themselves as pro-Life vice those that are pro-Choice are nearly equal at 48% to 45%. The numbers of those seeing abortion as federally defined from the same poll vice those who do not believe abortion should be legal at all is 52% vice 20% as of May 2013. Nolte loses this battle as well.

Nolte sticks with entertainment decrying the amount of sex on television but reveling in what he calls the return of the masculine male on the National Geographic Channel. These shows according to the author “celebrate the working class and their traditional values.” What he really means is they celebrate being white, Christian and living in the woods or where it’s very cold. The next “reason” the Right is winning the Culture War is the ascendancy of Jimmy Fallon to the Tonight Show as a counter to Stephen Colbert stepping into David Letterman’s slot after his retirement next year. There is no rhyme or reason to this at all.

The next nugget reveals something about conservatives. They like strong male characters. Nolte point to Don Draper [Mad Men] Walter White [Breaking Bad] and Tony Soprano [The Sopranos] as examples of these. They are called “flawed” and “anti-heroes” and I imagine that takes the guilt away for all the nudity, sex, drugs and violence which conservative say they are against on TV.

More entertainment, really? Miley Cyrus is popular but unions are dying says Nolte. I fear conservatives may never come out of this irrational abyss. As if the weakness of unions in America is a good thing for those working class people they say they love?

Conservative media is on the upswing says Nolte. Well get back to me in 20 years when most Fox News viewers are either dead or senile or have slaughtered their family. There is a trend in there demographically if you just take the time to look.

Women are getting birth control but conservatives have their guns! This is awful. War on women much? The fear of the Other is oozing here.

Nolte sees more money in politics as a solution to what ails the Right politically. No John, the key would be to make your tent bigger. Oh, that’s right you can’t do that because you’d have to let in all those brown people, women and gay people on a level playing field.

Yes, Occupy is dead but given time the TEA Party will wither as well. I think the date on that tombstone will be somewhere around 1 February 2017.

What John Nolte needs is a time machine so he can return to that conservative era of his father the 1950s. Back then by conservative standards women were in their place (not barefoot and pregnant but seen and not heard), minorities were second class citizens and it was a crime to be gay. It must be awful for John Nolte to have to watch as all that unearned privilege is redistributed in the form of earned civil rights.

POLITICS IN THE BUFF: MEGAN HUNTSMAN

There isn’t any need for a title any longer than what you see above. Megan Huntsman of Pleasant Grove, Utah has been arrested for killing six of her newborn children between the years 1996 and 2006. This is of course a heinous crime equal in scope to what was done by Dr Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia. However, conservatives are not asking for movies to be made about Huntsman or that the media focus their might on covering her murders. The conservatives at Free Republic have gone down the twisted path of saying:

“Megan Huntsman, murderer and obama supporter.”
“She should be spokesperson for Planned Parenthood..murders babies with a smile on her face..Wendy Davis will help pay for her defense”
“Innocent human life has no value for liberals.”

This ends the game for me. Abortion rights are settle case law in America. Period. The law also has a recourse when murder is committed. Abortion, as defined in Roe v Wade is not murder. Now it’s time to present some facts to the right wing Know Nothings. The odds are very slim indeed that Megan Huntsman is an Obama supporter. In Pleasant Grove in the 2008 election only 18.4% of voters voted for Obama; in 2012 9.8% did. This is a city with a population that is less than 36,000. It’s not enough for these bitter old fucks to believe that crime is only a disease that afflicts whites as victims and the “others” as perps. Now anytime the bright light of Truth is shone on just how shameful their own mentally lacking ilk are they choose to associate the perp with all things Progressive. This cannot be allowed to stand.

Is Megan Huntsman mentally ill? Possibly. Is Megan Huntsman what the average American would consider a monster? Yes. Is Megan Huntsman the essence of a Progressive thinker? No. Is she more likely, based on her demographics to be more of a TEA Party type. I cannot say, because I do not know her. I have grown more and more tired of conservative horseshit like this thread from the Free Republic. They can justify an armed camp to help a moocher who wants the taxpayers to foot his grazing rights bill but they are quick to associate a baby killer from Utah of all places with the Progressive movement in America. I for one will be glad when the last turn of dirt is thrown in the face of the last conservative Baby Boomer who croaks of natural causes. Then the American Left can show everyone how to deal with the remaining conservative middle agers and youngsters who in defiance of their own irrational beliefs are treated with respect unlike how the right treats the Left today.

A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF WHY THE RIGHT IS WRONG

blochadvocate_1

I had fleeting memory of Cindy McCain and Megan McCain being in an ad for the gay rights group NOH8 four years ago but this ad has burned an image in the mind of Mark Noonan at Blogs4Victory. Noonan an intractable Catholic conservative who is so concerned with his own immortal Soul that he would be willing to disenfranchise millions of Americans, deny millions more their civil rights and even deny health care options to every woman in America who would seek any form of birth control writes:

“I remember a while back ago when I saw a picture of Cindy and Meghan McCain made up in the “NoH8″ logo and it immediately occurred to me just how absolutely disgusting it was – while “NoH8″ had been around for a while, it suddenly struck me what it really meant – what the liberal fascists, that is, meant by using it: that anyone who disagrees with them is a hate-filled bigot, unfit for decent company. It told me, point blank, that by the mere fact of being a Catholic in accord with the Magisterium, I was the modern version of Bull Connor. Plenty of Republicans fell for it – after all, it was just about not hating, right? Perhaps not. Maybe the whole purpose of “NoH8″ was to get people to hate the “other” – in this case, anyone who disagreed with same-sex marriage?”

This is just the beginning of a post (which should be read in full to understand the lunacy of the right) that exposes what is wrong with the mainstream religious conservative in America. In one way he wants special treatment for himself and his beliefs despite not holding these beliefs all his life and not ever being challenged or discriminated against because of them. This is in stark contrast with countless black Americans, women and LGBTQ persons who have given their lives in their struggle for equality with self proclaiming religious white men.

cindy mccain noh8

Noonan, a Catholic is now on the same side of history as those who were in the Ku Klux Klan in their heyday at the onset of the Roaring Twenties. The similarities between the rhetoric, bigotry and desire for unearned privilege is almost without divergence. He makes a point that any conservative that disagrees with a Liberal who feels that LGBTQ Americans deserve the same equal treatment under the law as he does as a citizen will be portrayed as a bigot or worse, is a non-starter. Anyone who does this and stands on their religion as the proof and reason IS a bigot. It is the height of hubris that Mark Edward Noonan feels that his Catholic beliefs should strip the rights of anyone. This is the definition of bigotry; that one’s beliefs are a legitimate reason to hate.

fascism_when_faFascism_comes_to_america_it_will_be_wrapped_in_the_flag_and_carrying_a_cross_sinclair_lewis

This is nothing new coming from Noonan or from conservatives in America panicked that their unearned privilege has been exposed and that their numbers are dwindling. It is no wonder that he can bear none of my comments at his site no matter how civil or fact filled. He stands on his faith which he holds more dear than the rule power of the Constitution which conservatives swear they want America to return. This is yet another paradox for those who think like Noonan. It is not enough for him that he lives in a nation that is the most free in the world (despite NSA spying and runaway technological snooping by corporations) he and his brethren must rule; especially if it is at the expense of those who do not share his values.

CHARLES BLOW, PAUL RYAN AND THE NEED TO BUILD A NEW AMERICAN MIDDLE CLASS

blochadvocate_1

Paul Ryan’s recent comments about “inner city” poverty were rightly understood by many Americans as an offensive and bigoted comment bordering on racist, since Ryan has significant political power. Conservatives, however, are angered by anything that takes the coded comments their leaders make and clarifies them by exposing the code as New York Times columnist Charles Blow did on 21 March 2014. The problem with poverty is, that like crime and other social ills which need to be addressed in current times, it is a broad spectrum ill. Poverty does not belong to black men in the “inner cities” those dark and frightening places where suburban white conservatives stage their most nightmarish rape and murder fantasies. Nor doe poverty only belong in the nostalgic era of the rural Midwestern dust bowl. One would only need to look at the rapacious nature of the last recession in America’s suburbs where people used their homes as ATMs and paid a terrible cost for their folly.

Black American political leaders were slow to call out conservative homeowners and suburban couples who spent their evenings trying to find homes to flip during the years that led up to the housing bubble. Now, in this demographic transition period in America conservative leaders in Washington trying desperately to get moderate white voters to vote for the privilege they have not earned by using the same code language that Southern governors used to fight against the integration of schools and lunch counters. There is likely not one conservative leader that would admit that they know conservative people in positions of corporate or governmental power who hold bigoted positions out of fear of, as Glenn Beck put it “being overrun.” And what exactly does that mean being overrun? It means having and enjoying an unearned privilege based on the color of one’s skin vice the content of their character.

The age of this privilege started to end long before the first President of color was elected and sworn in to office. It began with small steps in the 1890s and saw America as a white monolith enact laws that mandated the constitutionality of separate but equal. Three generations later that facade was cracked further by the Brown v Board decision. The march for civil rights in America has changed the very cultural opinion of the majority of its citizens and to save America that cultural shift must be applied to how Americans view the poor. It is no longer a viable solution for middle class conservative whites to rally around their values and religion in an effort to hang on to this dying thread of privilege they enjoy. The time is now for the American people to put aside their racial and religious fears and pick up the banner of giving every American a chance at the American dream. A new push for affirmative action must come out of conservatives realizing their culture war is lost and that the only way to save themselves and their nation is to work day and night to bring about a new educated and working middle class– for all.

we were discussing social issues, this happened in my back yard and YES the article does divulge the demographics of the rioters.
I personally know people who were there when this took place, and YES it happens almost every year.
I made no comment about race I posted an article about a social issue that is an 800 lb elephant in the room.

IN the ARTICLE……………………..*********Before next year’s fair, the agency plans to coordinate with **community groups**, including Tampa’s **Pastors on Patrol**, the **NAACP** and the **Sheriff’s Black Advisory Council** to get the word out that such behavior is unacceptable —*******

please read the article before the usual screaming about alleged racism.

It was a polite comment. Yours is a rude response. We have been down this road before and all the Moderators are tired of it. Just shut up about race. You have made your point so shut up about it or go away. This is no longer a request. It is a condition of you posting here. Got it? Good. // Moderator

Ok
lets try this again…..
My intention on posting the article was to convey that our discussion of the GOP merely pointing out the relegated duties of the government to large segments of our population will get the GOP nowhere.
We pretty much know who the perps are when this type of mob behavior is exhibited, we cant stick our heads in the ground and pretend it doesnt exist, and not speaking to to the issues of behavior, class warfare, responsibility, morality, citizenship, gives us groups that are lost to modern day society.
That includes 5yo’s using the same bathrooms in california because they are gender conflicted. REALLY??? REALLY??? and we are supposed to sit down and STFU on these issues read them the constitution, states rights, and lower taxes to these groups??
Sorry but I have to agree with one of the postings from above.

“Low taxes and less spending in Sodom and Gomorrah is not my idea of a conservative victory”

It is simply too rich that Neocon1 doesn’t get that his bigoted beliefs are going to be the death of the GOP even if he isn’t a true Republican.

ED LASKY’S RIGHT WING CIVIL WAR WET DREAM

blochadvocate_7

Having read the latest screed from Ed Lasky at the American Thinker, I believe I can declare that the conservatives have lost not only the Culture Wars, but the respect of the American people. Lasky depends on the tribal notions that people, unlike him by way of conservative codespeak, are taking what is rightfully theirs. And by their I mean belong to the real Americans as he sees it–conservatives. In the end the American people have suffered tremedously, not because of the policies of Barack Obama or because of Democrats but because the system worked as it should for the wealthy and thereby failed the middle class and the poor when the economy teetered on the brink of collapse in the late summer of 2008. No conservative would have written such an article in that time while George W Bush was President of the United States and having it written now is nothing more than pandering to a political base that knows that its days are literally numbered. What Lasky wants is a civil war in America against the haves and the have nots which in his mind would turn America back to the nostalgic days of the pre Civil Rights era, plain and simple. Lasky hates America today because it’s not the America he was promised as a child–a place where white conservative rule would last a thousand years. This is the worst of all possible forms of bigotry; the kind that wishes poverty and displacement on one’s own fellow citizens.

CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY AND THE ORIGINS OF A GAME THAT MAY NOT EXIST: MEET JOE DONOVAN

Posted in SARAH BLOCH OPINIONS, THE KNOCKOUT GAME with tags , on 24/12/2013 by sarahbloch

blochadvocate_7

Like many journalists I have written off the concept of the Knockout Game being a national trend. Instead I believe it is another in a long line of recent moral panics spread by the very instrument I am using right now; the Internet and the power of blogs and other social media to spread information at lightning pace. Conservatives like to use the concept of the Knockout Game to both spread fear and justify their bigotry against blacks and Latinos. This is also nothing new. In the age of digital communication and the 24 hour news cycle both on cable and satellite and here in the briers of the world wide web coupled with an easily cowed white conservative middle class and a conservative white elderly class such moral panics can become explosive.

Ciu Cava daelth Nixhot, our ombudsman here at The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork, has pointed out to me numerous times that the ever screaming white right has called for those caught as perpetrators of the Knockout Game should go to prison for life or worse. I do not believe as some ultraLiberals both black and white have said that this violence against whites is some sort of cultural balancing of the transgression done to and against blacks during the Jim Crow era and even beyond. Two wrongs never make a right. Conservatives would be quick to lock up a teen, simply because he was black, and throw away the key for participating in a random act of violence. I imagine the aging conservative religious white population has to do something to have hope of slowing the pace of the browning of America.

joe donovan

Fred Schwartz pointed me to this article written by Michale Brick for Esquire magazine yesterday that points to the origins of the current moral panic. It details the story of a young white kid named Joe Donovan who punched an MIT exchange student from Norway Yngve Raustein in the face knocking him to the ground with three of his friends who robbed him. One of those friends at the time 15 year old Shon McHugh stabbed Raustein in the chest killing him. Joe Donovan, then 17 suffered the fate that conservatives want for the black and Latino perps of this moral panic; Donovan got life in prison. McHugh on the other hand served 11 years in jail.

All of this has left me wondering a very simple thing; where are all the calls from white conservatives to keep Joe Donovan in prison to serve the sentence they feel someone who punches a person in the face deserves?

I take Fred Schwartz’s decision to distance this newspaper from the cancer that is Blogs4Victory very seriously so after this example of conservative hypocrisy from the disgraced Bill Logan I too will be taking a sabbatical from commenting on their delusions. These people constantly state that the writers and researchers here are living in a fantasy world yet it is the fantasy that is supported by their own religious beliefs. “There cannot be a Heaven without a Hell,” is a constant in this Afterlife. Yet religious Conservatives at B4V mock that their is even a possibility that I, or Fred Schwartz or Pain even exist in the realm where we do live. To sum up, their fantasies, that all of their loved ones go to Heaven must be true because it supports their worldview; our reality is impossible because it is in conflict with their ideal that all Conservatives go to Heaven.

This level of delusion is important to understand when dealing with Conservatives especially ones of an age that lived through the Cold War. The fight against the Marxist-Leninism of the Soviet Union was supposed to be the last great fight that America was ever to have. It would be a winner take all battle between Communism and Capitalism, Christianity versus Atheism and Democracy versus Totalitarianism. Of course, this hasn’t been the case. There were many complexities politically and economically that do not fit into neat little boxes regarding the collapse of the Soviet Union. The same thing would have been true has America been broken up for similar reasons and the Soviets won the ideological battle for Terra.

Bill Logan, aka Neocon1, makes light of many things. He mocks the working poor and their struggle for a Living Wage. What he does is typical of a man who is angry that Death is so close and he has not been rewarded on Terra with what he felt he deserved because he was loyal to his racial tribe and religious tribe. As a Human Being, in that great struggle to become one he has failed because he has chosen the opposite path of Nelson Mandela and now fights for hate rather than love. To be on the side of hate is to relish lying and obscuring the facts to convince the other rotting souls who ally with conservatism that the Progressives are due for punishment for taking away the golden future that white Conservatives were promised. That golden future, sadly for Bill Logan is neither the golden shower he lusts for, nor is it a golden parachute; that future now is being enjoyed by the powerful oligarchs of the American 1%.

Neocon1 in his most recent tour de force of hypocrisy and obfuscation note that McDonald’s is installing 7,000 touch screens at restaurants to replace cashiers. It is a response to last week’s push by fast food workers for a Living Wage in the United States. Neocon1 gives the impression with his post that the hammer is going to come down on McDonald’s workers for standing up to their corporate masters. However, this story is neither about McDonald’s restaurants in the United States nor is it a current reaction to the protests. The story is about restaurants in Europe and was originally written in May of 2011. In the article itself, are the words, “McDonald’s says they have no interest in replacing cashiers with kiosks in Australia, however, or anywhere else for that matter.” So once again Neocon1 depends on the rabid stupidity of the other walking corpses of Conservatism who gobble up the feces of bigotry and anti-intelelctualism at B4V. To me they are to be pitied not to waste digital space on here or anywhere else. For at least a few months, unless their crimes of hypocrisy are grave, I will devote my time to pressing home the Progressive agenda to my American readers and enjoying the warm weather here in Hell.

REPUBLICAN INFIGHTING IN BROWARD COUNTY FLORIDA MAY BE JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG

Broward County, Florida is important to the establishment GOP because if it can thrive there, in a county which has seen a dizzying rise of Latinos and blacks migrate to the county in the last decade, it can deliver both its message and members to Congress from nearly anywhere else in the United States. The Broward Republican Executive Committee has been plagued over the past half decade with its share of battles with TEA Party elements led by Fort lauderdale TEA Party activist Danita Kilcullen. The actions of Kilcullen since 2009 are a single component of why Progressives have very little to fear from the TEA Party but why the establishment GOP needs to jettison these people from their ranks. The only way for the GOP to remain a viable national party is to separate from the TEA Party, take their lumps in local and state elections for a few years and come back nationally in the hopes of reversing the success of Progressive policies during a two term Hillary Clinton administration.

I know that sounds like a heavy lift, but as time goes on I am beginning to side with my colleague Fred Schwartz who feels that if the TEA Party is allowed to remain a cancer in the belly of the GOP it eventually will kill the party leaving a new massive and powerful Democratic Party to rule unchecked possibly for the remainder of the 21st Century. There are dangers in that eventuality that are well known and have been viewed in Human history many times in the past. A loyal opposition is a security requirement for any representative democracy and I still hope the GOP will come to the center in the next few decades if they can shed the reactionaries in the TEA Party.

Now back to Ms Kilcullen for moment. Many of you are aware that she was arrested and found guilty of a drunken attack on a police officer in the fall of 2010. She has also accused people of “hacking” her Facebook account. Kilcullen recently drew the ire of both Progressives and establishment GOP members in Broward when she sent an email detailing how the county GOP was being taken over by “gay thugs”.

We can expect more of this sort of infighting until the GOP cleans up its own house.

This one comes from kmgtwo based on the galactically stupid article from CNS News that was reposted by Mark Noonan. There are more holes in the conservative arguments made by CNS and B4V than fromage suisse. Anywho, the runout of all of this is more proof that the right doesn’t really care about facts they simply want to keep their dying angry base in a constatnt state of feeling victimized in the hope that just one of them might do the crazy thing that thousands of other want to do but are afraid of kicking off. And yes, I do think there is a mighty and deep vein of violence on the right that is just about at the tipping point and I don’t mean just among the ever present lunatic fringe. Middle class people are hurting and we’re talking about folks who when they feel cornered no one and I mean no one can tell them that their world is over.
