The Dem’s Wave of Political Correct Fascism Now Sweeping Across America

 

GOD BLESS AMERICA? NO, PLEASE DON’T!

by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

We live in a world that is almost too stupid for words. Here is the latest: the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Flyers have stopped playing Kate Smith’s iconic recording of “God Bless America.” Why? Because Smith recorded a couple of other songs, during the 1930s, that some liberals now consider objectionable. The Washington Post takes this idiocy seriously:

The voice of singer Kate Smith is rapidly disappearing from the world of professional sports. The New York Yankees reportedly confirmed Thursday that they were no longer playing Smith’s version of “God Bless America” during the seventh inning of home games, after the team learned of a Depression-era song she’d recorded that raised questions of possible racism. The Philadelphia Flyers followed suit Friday, distancing themselves from Smith by taking her famed rendition of “God Bless America” out of their playlist and covering a bronze statue of the singer near their arena as they investigate the matter.

Years ago, Kate Smith’s “God Bless America” was the Flyers’ good luck charm. Hence the statue of her, which has been weirdly covered:

The Yankees have been playing Smith’s “God Bless America” since 2001, but no longer. What’s the problem? Smith recorded a song in 1931 called “That’s Why Darkies Were Born.” Is that a racist song? Apparently not, since the Communist black activist Paul Robeson also recorded it. Here are the lyrics:

Someone had to pick the cotton
Someone had to plant the corn,
Someone had to slave and be able to sing
That’s why darkies were born.
Someone had to laugh at trouble
Though he was tired and worn,
Had to be contented with any old thing
That’s why darkies were born.

How racist can you get?

The whole controversy is, obviously, idiotic. Even if it were true that Kate Smith recorded a “racist” song by the standards of 80 years later–the other “questionable” song was part of a 1933 movie–that is an absurd reason to ban “God Bless America.” Who cares what other songs Smith sang?

The real objection, I think, is not to Kate Smith. It is to both God and America. Any time liberals can suppress references to either or both, they try to do so.

 

 

 

God Bless America? No, Please Don’t!

 

 

Note:  I, ghr, was almost eleven when World War II finally came to an end.  I couldn’t read books, but I could read newspaper articles, maps, cutlines, encyclopedias, National Geographics from 1920s to 1940, and any news items that covered the war or history.   I had two cousins from the  German part of my mother’s family in the Navy on the Japanese front.   Both survived the War.

During the war I heard Kate Smith’s “God Bless America” on radio every day as I recall.    Often at the movies on Sundays this Kate Smith  recording would be played before the main movie immediately after Wartime Movietone News had shown the slaughters at Guadalcanal in the Pacific and/or the boot of Italy.   Mother made certain I had a nickel available for the cause….The movie itself cost a dime….which  was only five cents short of a vital loaf of bread I used to buy at Mrs. Sandy’s Bakery in St. Paul’s Highland Village…..Certain foods, especially meats and  gasoline were heavily rationed.

My dad had bought a second hand 1941 Plymouth four door in September that year…replacing a 1936 four door Ford sedan with shades on the back side windows.  The Plymouth sat in the garage throughout the war.

No one was fat in those days.  The fattest person I ever saw during the war was Kate Smith when she sang our Nation’s song “God Bless America” prelude to the movie!

THE AMERICAN DITSY DEMOCRAT  LEFT, ITS FASCISTIC SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES, NEWS CONTROL,  AND FEMINIST HORDES OF NOISE WITHOUT BRAIN ARE MAKING AMERICA FASCISTIC THESE DAYS…..THEY’VE BECOME  UNCHURCHED AND SO, GODLESS AND GOODLESS…..SO WHAT DO YOU EXPECT, FOLKS?

HAPPY EASTER!

Google Swings Fascist Left Again! Every American Should Worry about BIG SISTER Police!

GOOGLE SWINGS LEFT AGAIN

Google has done away with its Artificial Intelligence Ethics Board, apparently because leftists at the company objected to inclusion of Heritage Foundation President Kay Coles James on the board:

[E]mployees immediately claimed that James’s position on transgender identity involved advocating violence against them. An employee leaked an internal discussion on the issue, and the comments proved terrifying.
***
Some employees defended James’s addition to the board in the name of including diverse perspectives. Even this suggestion was demonized.

“I think that people have been very clear that the problem with the Heritage Foundation isn’t that they ‘don’t think like I do’ but that they actively and stridently advocate for religiously based anti­LGBTQ+ policies that immiserate my friends, colleagues, and comrades and has a real and damaging impact on their lives,” one employee wrote.

Disagreement is violence! I met Kay James at a dinner a year or so ago, and can assure you that she is not a proponent of violence.

The Heritage Foundation has hosted many events criticizing transgender identity. It has hosted former transgender Walt Heyer, who runs the website SexChangeRegret.com. It has hosted Julia Beck, a lesbian feminist who got kicked off of the Baltimore LGBT Commission for disagreeing with transgender identity.

Beck has warned that embracing transgender identity in civil rights law would allow biological men in women’s bathrooms and changing rooms and in women’s sports.

That seems rather obviously correct. But transgender activism has entered the holy pantheon of leftist ideologies that cannot be debated.

Mike Wacker, a Google employee concerned about animus against conservatives and Christians at the company, warned that conservative employees at Google are terrified of defending Kay Coles James internally, “especially if someone reports them to HR. That fear is justified.”

Corporate human resources departments are among the main sources of evil in today’s world.

Wacker pointed to a survey from the Lincoln Network, in which one conservative tech employee wrote, “Employees will interpret your words in the most offensive way possible, then report you to HR based on that interpretation. It’s one big offendedness sweepstakes. When people get in trouble, it’s often based not on what they said, but on how others interpreted their words, regardless of how unreasonable that interpretation is.”

“I’ve seen someone get reported to HR for sharing a National Review article,” the conservative employee wrote.

There is much more at the link. Bottom line is that Google and other left-wing tech companies should not be ceded control over public discourse in America.

But, the Human Female Animal IS Born Ditsy!!! Today’s Dem Party Proves This Historical Truth by Cherishing Her for It!

by an aged American,  Glenn H. Ray, who learned  knowledge  in public schools from 1939-1952  by profoundly well educated, nearly all  full blooded American Truth-seeking old maid school teachers programmed by their country and its male professors  to teach knowledge, because learning knowledge, they instructed,  made you closer to your JudeoChristian God, the Maker of  all things known and unknown.

Now….

…….Name an HONEST problem-solver programmed  female now ‘running’ or about to ‘run’ to become the next President of our United States who has been interested in learning knowledge!    The human female animal doesn’t  seem to spend a lot of time these days learning and sharing anything  much about truth, now that JudeoChristianity has become American  fascistic  Dem’s primary  enemy in the world.

That the  JudeoChristian  God is MALE!…..born the builder, protector, challenger, the   warrior, the  Savior, the judge, the wise man  to protect to  continue the future and nature of the species “Is a history which must be made to disappear”, today’s  Dem fem fascists screech and scream.   They feel it!   They are in the mood to rebel!

Yet, this female relative to her male still  invents nothing, thinks ditsy,  and builds little!  Nor has she ever really fought under fire in a fox hole.  Her sly cunning is  and always has been quite different  from the power and violence provided the human male.

She, and only SHE, bears children……her primary God-given gift!

Yet, today, these female  animals are likely  to show up and simply   explore and expand  their own moody  feelings  taught  at Harvard,  Columbia, Yale,  the University of California at Berkeley, Macalester,  and  Sarah Lawrence College and etc….etc…..and etc from coast to  coast  to raise hell rather than civilized children!

No matter how repulsive the many, the majority  of  the nation’s  television feminist shrilly, screechy voices possess and  pierce the ears of those who suffer  the  listen,  the lefty noises are the most repulsive in content, sound,  and delivery as if the world is already totally  theirs to hen!

Via today’s “Mother Nature” lefty prefers her native ditsy world, her powerful moody, dreamy,  emotional, piercing -kind of make-believe world.  She is taught to see herself  as today’s independent queen human female, rising to the top of their world….as she, they “feel” it from their bosoms styled by a  Maxine Waters, an Alexandra Ocasio Cortez, an Elizabeth Warren, a Dianne Feinstein  or Kirsten Gillibrand American with nose and noise free of  male Truth and Knowledge.   Some of the men in Congress  carry the same Nature…Don’t you agree?

And, yet most of our adult American  human male animals still dutifully labor as  her and the species’ primary protector!   Yet, in these United States of our America today,  ditsy chicks and fascistic friends  are preaching their fascistic  gospels as Truth of Our Day at schools, universities, and colleges from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans!

Moreover, our America is being invaded by millions of foreigners crossing illegally into the country southern borders  to be taken care of by today’s Dem  feminazis who need their votes to secure their lefty feelings forever in the future.

How, do you, fellow Americans think that is going to work out?

Gentleman Joe Biden Defeats Dem Feminazis of the Phony Tender Kind!

New Biden Video Statement: I Get It, The Boundaries Of Protecting Personal Space Have Changed

by Allahpundit  at HotAir:

You know, when a politician wants to say something on video, he usually doesn’t have to look far to find a TV reporter willing to interview him about it.

Especially if he’s a former vice president leading the Democratic presidential primary polls in the midst of a minor #MeToo scandal that might imperil his candidacy.

How come Uncle Joe didn’t dial up Rachel Maddow or Jake Tapper for a little Q&A on this topic? I bet they would have put him on the air for as long as he wanted.

Two points of note here. One, obviously he’s running. He says right at the top that he expects to be talking about various issues in the coming month. His accusers didn’t scare him out of the race after all — unless, perhaps, there’s a ferocious manufactured backlash to this clip from the woke brigades, which is likely. Second, although he’s sort of contrite about his handsiness (he promises to be better about it), note that he never admits wrongdoing and apologizes. On the contrary, his point is that his actions were socially appropriate when they occurred, in the distant mists of time circa 2016. Biden will bend over backwards to admit fault and atone to the left to the extent that doing so makes them more likely to support him, but he can’t do that on a matter like this; inappropriate physical contact with women isn’t an understandable mistake the way a misjudgment about a complex policy matter is.

The only safe play was to claim a 40-year-long misunderstanding about whether women mind having their hair sniffed in the name of “personal connection.”

Exit quotation via Steven Gutowski: “‘I promise to be less creepy’ is one way to set up a campaign for president.”

Social norms are changing. I understand that, and I’ve heard what these women are saying. Politics to me has always been about making connections, but I will be more mindful about respecting personal space in the future. That’s my responsibility and I will meet it.

Classic Ditsy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Performance

AOC IS, LIKE, A VALLEY GIRL, OR, YOU KNOW, LIKE, WHATEVER

I’ve referred to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a Valley Girl before. That characterization is validated by this montage produced by our friends at Grabien. Taken from her appearance at SXSW in Austin, it documents her 71 “likes,” her 34 “you knows,” and her five “whatevers.” The woman is both ill-informed and unusually inarticulate, not to say, much of the time, incoherent. Here is the Valley Girl before an admiring audience:

DEM FEMS TURN TO LYING IN THE FIRST AND LAST DEGREE INSTEAD OF PROBLEM SOLVING

Byron York: Yes, Trump is target of ‘presidential harassment’

President Trump often complains that he is the victim of “presidential harassment” — or, as he sometimes puts it, “PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!”

“Presidential Harassment by ‘crazed’ Democrats at the highest level in the history of our Country,” Trump tweeted on March 3. “After more than two years of Presidential Harassment, the only things that have been proven is that Democrats and others broke the law,” he added later. “PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT! It should never be allowed to happen again!” he tweeted Feb. 7.

The president’s adversaries of course dismiss his protests as self-interested whining. But the fact is, Trump has a point. He is the target of an extraordinary combination, not just of federal law enforcement and congressional probes, but a long list of less-discussed but potentially consequential investigations by state and local prosecutors and regulators.

Together, it adds up to a pile-on of unprecedented proportions, by and large the work of blue-state Democrats who stand to gain politically if their investigations succeed in crippling the president.

Recently, the New York State Department of Financial Services, the agency that regulates the insurance business, issued what the New York Times called an “expansive subpoena” to Aon, the insurance broker for the president’s companies. The agency leaped into action after former Trump fixer Michael Cohen told the House that Trump had at some point inflated his assets to an insurance company. Cohen, who has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress and faces serious questions about the truthfulness of his latest testimony, supplied no details.

None were needed. “The subpoena that was served on Aon contains no indication that the company or any of its employees engaged in misconduct,” the Times reported. “Nor does it specify any possible wrongdoing that is the focus of the inquiry by state regulators.” The subpoena demanded “a broad range of materials” related to Trump’s dealings with Aon going back a decade, the Times said.

Also in New York, the State Department of Taxation and Finance announced last October that it is investigating Trump’s taxes going back at least 20 years.

New York state officials have also filed suit against the Trump Foundation, which has agreed to dissolve as part of the investigation.

Speaking of state law enforcement, the recent New York Attorney General race was virtually a contest to see which candidate could vow to go after Trump the most aggressively. In her victory speech, new Attorney General Letitia James said of Trump, “I will be shining a bright light into every dark corner of his real estate dealings, and every dealing, demanding truthfulness at every turn.”

Outside of New York, the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia are suing Trump, accusing him of violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

Then, there is the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, based in Manhattan. Prosecutors there are said to be investigating the Trump Organization’s finances; the funding of the Trump inauguration; and the funding of the Trump SuperPAC Rebuilding America Now.

The SDNY investigations hold a large place in the hopes of Trump opponents who fear Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller might deliver an underwhelming report that does not make the case that Trump colluded with Russia to fix the 2016 election or that he obstructed justice in the aftermath. Indeed, a number of observers believe the SDNY probes pose a more serious threat to Trump than Mueller.

Does there seem something odd about that? In a recent email exchange, I asked Andrew Coan, a University of Arizona law professor who is the author of the book Prosecuting the President, whether there is precedent for a U.S. Attorney’s office conducting a wide-ranging, open-ended investigation of a sitting president.

“The short answer is no,” Coan responded. “I am aware of no comparable prior investigation.”

The reason I asked was that it seems that the basis for the now-expired independent counsel law, and for special counsels that exist today, is that a president, when investigated, should be investigated in a specific way, and not in the normal course of business by federal prosecutors. Coan noted that a special counsel was appointed in Watergate on the rationale that “a U.S. Attorney could not be trusted to investigate the president who appointed him.” Today, by all accounts, Coan added, SDNY prosecutors have pursued their investigation aggressively, but the appointment of another special counsel from outside the Justice Department “would provide some additional assurance that this investigation is not being influenced by political pressure.”

By pressure, Coan meant pressure from the president. But in New York, there could also be the possibility of pressure created by the general atmosphere of resistance to a hated chief executive in a heavily Democratic state.

On Capitol Hill, Democrats have long viewed Trump’s tax returns, which he broke 40-year precedent by refusing to release, as a sort of Holy Grail of Trump investigations. “We have to have the truth,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said before the election. Now, the House Ways & Means Committee is reportedly preparing to demand the Treasury Department turn over the returns. The demand is based primarily on suspicion that Trump must have done something wrong with his taxes or he would have long ago released the returns. If Democrats get the returns, and that is not guaranteed given the expected legal fight, it’s likely they will start even more investigations.

Beyond that, there is the House Judiciary Committee’s recent decision to demand documents from 81 people associated with Trump, a request so wide-ranging that even some Democrats worry that their party’s investigators have overreached.

“The extensive scope could bolster claims by Trump and Republicans that congressional Democrats are seeking to undermine the president and cripple his 2020 reelection effort rather than conduct a disciplined, fact-finding inquiry,” the Washington Post reported. Yes, it could.

And all of that is apart from the Mueller probe and the Senate and House Trump-Russia investigations.

The point is, the scrutiny directed at the president from all sides, not oversight of his administration or even investigations into his election, so far exceeds anything in the past that it could well qualify as presidential harassment.

Democrats would no doubt respond that Trump is singularly corrupt, or that he brought it all on himself. He did not. What has happened is that Democrats, in Congress and in some key blue states, saw investigation as a way to weaken a president they never thought would be elected and want to ensure is not re-elected in 2020. And Trump, with the most extensive business history ever brought to the presidency, presented a lot of avenues of investigation. When he complains about harassment, he has a legitimate case to make.
