Not a word , not a word, not a word, my Lord
And he never said a mumblin’ word, my Lord,
My Lord, my Lord!” ~~Old American Spiritual
The Oscars 2005!
You say “Fallujah” – We say “ABU GHRAIB”. That was about how it was last night when Hollywood assembled. The Beautiful People are known for their loud rantings against Ashcroft, Bush and their supposed destruction of civil liberties, the immorality of the war, and anything else that happens to be outside their political myopia. Why was one of their own, who was horribly murdered in broad daylight, never even mentioned? There was “not a mumblin’ word” about the “violent broad daylight murder” of Dutch film maker Theo van Gogh. He was assassinated by an Islamic Jihadist last November, shortly after the release of his film,” Submission”, which criticized the treatment of women under Islam. He was silenced! Why is Hollywood unconcerned about this particular violation of human rights? Is it fear of or is it sympathy for the Jihadist movement?
“2/28/2005: Theo Van Gogh Forgotten on Oscar Night – More disturbing, though: not a word was said about the murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh. You wonder if the organizers even discussed it—and if they did, what excuse was used to avoid the subject.”
What is it that “moonbats” say whenever they speak? On “Meet the Press” yesterday was a good example from a very well-known moonbat. Jackson’s Journal had posted the video, so if you missed the show, you can see and hear it here. -WATCH-
Jackson’s Journal refers to yesterday’s performance of Maureen Dowd of the “New York Times” as “Maureen Dowd-Moonbat Charge Of The Day”. He writes that on the television program, she was asked the following question by moderator Tim Russert, and her reply has been labeled as the “Moonbat Charge of the Day”.
Russert: “Would you now accept the fact that because of the invasion of Iraq, there is a possibility of democracy in Iraq and that may spread in the Middle East?” Watch the video from Jackson’s Journal.-WATCH-
I have found a Talking Moonbat on the Internet and was given permission by his owner, Sean Gleeson, to allow him to roost at my site. Sean has named him “Autorantic Virtual Moonbat”, aka “The Insane Left-wing Robot Who Hates You!” You can read his rantings for yourself over on the right hand side of this blog. Notice how similar his rantings are to the answers of New York Times writer, Maureen Dowd.
I found this post at Jackson’s Junction. If you have not viewed the Media Link (works in all browsers) of Ward Churchill, featuring his “left-hand sideways Mohawk ‘Winter Attack’ chop”, view it first! The following post is so hilarious, I decided to pass it on, even though I don’t know who wrote it. The only attribution I found was: “#63 Ed Mahmoud abu al Qahool Martyr Brigades 2/26/2005 10:24AM PST, posted at Jackson’s by LGFer”. Enjoy Ward demonstrating his true Indian ancesty – the “left-hand sideways Mohawk chop” . Go here if you want to view the entire television segment – CBS4 Denver News, viewable only in Internet Explorer.
Chutch was demonstrating the left-hand sideways Mohawk chop he developed as a member of the Army Special Forces Motor Pool and Press Office. He used it many times to great affect when the Viet Cong attacked him as he sat writing Special Forces press releases at the IBM Selectric typewriter with the special th character later sent to a Texas ANG unit as the war was winding down.
Later, during the war, it was rumored that a CIA agent, often referred to as “The Chief” because of his rumored Native American ancestry but never clearly seen because of a floppy jungle hat he wore, used that left handed Mohawk chop to disable an entire platoon of VC that tried to stop him and a gallant Navy lieutenant on a mission to deliver needed supplies to the Khmer Rouge. By then, rumor has it, “The Chief” realized that the entire US military in Viet Nam was a bunch of “Little Eichmanns”, and he decided to promote the causes of international revolutionary socialism by helping the Navy officer supply a revolutionary army in Cambodia a year before they ever took the field.
Of course, that is about the time that “The Chief” attracted the attention of the CIA, as he had apparently told people his mission into Cambodia was authorized by The Company. A young CIA case officer, who had earned his stripes in Chile by overthrowing the Allende government, known only by the initials “KR”, was put on the case, and has been working to thwart the Chief’s valiant efforts to expose the entire US system as being controlled by Gestapo officers who escaped to Argentina in 1946 and then captured a young Richard M Nixon, brainwashed him, and then returned him to the US to begin the process of establishing a Fourth Reich.
“This is an artwork we’ve got called ‘Winter Attack.’ It looks like it was based on a Thomas Mails painting; it looks like you ripped it off. Can you tell us about that?” Chohan asked.
“An exclusive report by CBS4 News indicates embattled University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill may have broken copyright law by making a mirror image of an artist’s work and selling it as his own. Placing Churchill’s work beside that of renowned artist Thomas E. Mails and the two look like mirror images. But one is a copyrighted drawing. The other is an autographed print by Churchill. ”
The New York Times is quoted today at Jihad Watch:
“Leave this stable and prosperous corner of Europe? Leave this land with its generous social benefits and ample salaries, a place of fine schools, museums, sports grounds and bicycle paths, all set in a lively democracy?
The answer, increasingly, is yes. This small nation is a magnet for immigrants, but statistics suggest there is a quickening flight of the white middle class. Dutch people pulling up roots said they felt a general pessimism about their small and crowded country and about the social tensions that had grown along with the waves of newcomers, most of them Muslims.’The Dutch are living in a kind of pressure cooker atmosphere, Mr. Hiltemann said.”
I had been so puzzled about the term “moonbats”, so when I came across a posting made by a polyglot in the Czech Republic, I certainly felt sympathy. Jana wrote:
“’Barking moonbats’ have spread recently in the web. Could anyone explain what kind of beast it is? It follows from my Google-based investigation that 1) they are more diffused across the pond than in Europe …”
We can always depend upon Wikipedia to be “up to snuff” so here is their definition:
“Moonbat is a pejorative political slogan coined in 2002 by Perry de Havilland of “The Libertarian Samizdata,” a libertarian weblog. The term enjoys great currency in the libertarian blogosphere, where it is used to disparage modern liberals, peace protestors, and other ideological opponents.”
1. “Someone on the extreme edge of whatever their -ism happens to be.” (de Havilland )
2. “someone who sacrifices sanity for the sake of consistency” (Adriana Cronin)
3. “… human whose cerebral cortex has turned to silly putty causing him or her to mentally slide down the evolutionary ladder to the level of a winged rat who is influenced by the moon and wants to suck your blood. Also not-so-affectionately known as a “Democrat”.” (www.barking-moonbat.com F.A.Q)
4. Not liberals, but leftists. Whereas liberals are patriotic, leftists seek to undermine their national strength. Anti-war protestors, likely to call the US military “nazis,” apt to blame the 9-11 attacks on a US government and Zionist conspiracy, are moonbats. Liberals who oppose the war, are not.
Here is someone who believes with me that the Liberals have become “Luddite” Conservatives (The Luddite Wing) and that the Conservatives have become progressive Liberals!
“I remember, back in my liberal days, being fiercely opposed to the Taliban and its brutal treatment of women. Even then, I felt that Afghanistan should immediately be liberated, as Malcolm X once said in another context, by any means necessary. But when it came time, it turned out that the left was mostly opposed to such liberation, whether of the Afghan people or of the Iraqis (especially if America and a Republican president were at the helm).
Indeed, liberals had become strangely conservative in their fierce attachment to the status quo. In contrast, the much-maligned neoconservatives (among whose ranks I count myself) and Bush had become the “radicals,” bringing freedom and democracy to the despotic Middle East. Is it any wonder that in such a topsy-turvy world, I found myself in agreement with those I’d formerly denounced?”
Oh Goody, Goody! The infamous Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Company has come out with a new flavor, that I will NEVER try. Yes, I will restrain myself from tasting The Waffle Truff, and I do it in honor of Michael Moore. No, Not really! I just plain HATE, HATE, HATE that stupid ice cream company. They keep saying that people like me are full of HATE, so if I am going to be accused, I may as well do it. I HATE Ben & Jerry’s! What is their claim to fame? Take some plain old vanilla or plain old chocolate cream and stir in much too many broken pieces of candy, cookies or nuts, give it a wacky-sounding name and viola, they announce a brand new flavor that all the “repugnant” capitalists will buy. However, the real true reason I HATE that company so much, is that they HATE me. They HATE the military. They HATE America. I have heard their spokesmen pontificate about their disdain for the American military. Meanwhile they go about their business behaving like they are the only ivory-pure capitalists in the free world because they use “ethically produced ingredients” – whatever that means. Before I knew any better I sampled Jerry Garcia flavor, because I loved him! I loved the ice cream too, and also Chubby Hubby. But never again! Let the moonbats buy their overpriced products. When I encounter their product in a store, I ask the management to reconsider stocking it, as I try never to patronize places that encourage, in any way, the moonbatism of Ben & Jerry’s. Besides they are from Vermont!
