A good example of socialist semantics.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/04/08/biden-atf-nominee-david-chipman-spread-blue-anon-conspiracy-theories-waco/

"David Chipman, His Fraudulency Joe Biden’s nominee to head the ATF, has spread wild-eyed, Blue Anon conspiracy theories about the 1993 Waco siege.

During a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) last year, Chipman, a former ATF special agent and current senior policy adviser at [Gabrielle] Giffords Courage to Fight Gun Violence organization, told this outrageous and provable lie:

At Waco, cult members used 2 .50 caliber Barretts to shoot down two Texas Air National Guard helicopters. Point, it is true we are fortunate they are not used in crime more often. The victims of drug lords in Mexico are not so lucky. America plays a role in fueling the violence south of the border.

That is some first-class, Blue Anon bullshit right there."


No chopper was shot down with .50 cals

No I gotta hand it to BB... "Blue-anon" Has a real good ring to it.

Reminds me of Peter from Family Guy on the game show “Password” and his partner was Tony Randall. The password was flaming. Peter giving the clue, “you”. Actor, replies Tony. Peter “youuu”. Star, says Tony...Peter sighs and drags out once again youuuuu....

Semantics or just another lie? -

There are many words lacking in the liberal/communist dictionary. Among them...patriotism, divine, providence, virtue, freedom, heritage, love, truth, personal responsibility, family....

1984 was a warning and not an instruction manual. Lol.

Gotta love that tax and spend.
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/04/09/joe-biden-releases-1-52-trillion-budget-proposal-partisan-pork-projects/

"Biden’s budget requests a 16 percent increase in domestic spending from 2021, including a 41 percent increase for the Department of Education, a 28 percent increase for the Department of Commerce, and a 23.5 percent increase for the Department of Health and Human Services.

That includes $1.7 billion for “energy-saving retrofits” of schools, homes, and federal buildings, and $600 million for electric vehicles and charging stations for federal agencies. It also requests more than $10 billion in “clean energy” innovation. The request also calls for $936 million in spending toward a new Accelerating Environmental and Economic Justice Initiative at the Environmental Protection Agency."

Good question.

IS RACE DISCRIMINATION LEGAL, OR NOT?
We live in a world in which race discrimination is ubiquitous. Universities, government agencies and all major employers systematically discriminate in favor of some races, and against others, under the banner of “affirmative action.” This has been going on for 50 years. And yet, the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection has been applied to ban race discrimination by public entities in a number of contexts. Similarly, the Civil Rights Act purports to bar race discrimination in employment and public accommodations. Such discrimination in employment is nevertheless pretty much universal; see, e.g., United Airlines’ recent declaration of its intent to discriminate for just one of many thousands of instances. I have no idea what the operative legal principles are.

Bill T 7:56 - "IS RACE DISCRIMINATION LEGAL, OR NOT?"
Just to ask that question is probably 'racist'.
The whole 'race' issue has become a weapon the left uses to suit whatever end they seek.
If there is a body of people that have power of some sort (economic, political, social, etc) and the left can't control it, then the left will seek to control that body by demanding it 'looks like America'. By fantastic coincidence, the 'POC' the left will want to be included will all be leftys. If that body is overwhelmingly not white, then 'looking like America' is not important.
If there is a debate or discussion that the left knows it can't win on merit, then it will look for any mention by the other side of anything to do with people who aren't 'white' and bingo - out comes the race card. Playing that card isn't a new gambit, but lately it's become so overworked, it's laughable.
But it seems to keep the left cooked up, and the major news media play right along, so it looks like we'll be seeing it used quite often - even when race isn't even actually involved.
Now it would seem to a logical person that this game gets the left tangled up in it's own rope, but at that point, the topic is suddenly dropped, and the weather is now the issue.
Just ask any lefty about Asians - are they 'white' or are they 'POC'?
Or ask a lefty why it's OK to say a 10 year old child is bad because their parents are Euro-descent but not OK to say anything negative about anyone else because of their ancestry.
Uh oh -
"Those are the kinds of questions white supremacists ask!"
Aaaand that's the end of that 'conversation'.

Walt 4:25 - "Accelerating Environmental and Economic Justice Initiative"
Isn't that at the top of everyone's 'to do' list?
Sounds to me like a perfect name for a pit to throw endless amounts of money into.
Think of how many toadies they can hire at 6 digit salaries just to come up with an org chart and their next years budget.
But don't you dare question the whole operation or demand an accounting for results.
That would be racist.

George Rebane

ScottO 820am - Now just ask any of these lefty pinheads to define ANY of these terms that they so freely use and append to people who don’t agree with them; start with ‘racist’ and ‘racism’. They have neither the intellect nor the political balls to offer a coherent definition for these, and instead vilify you for daring to ask such a question.

Scott O

George 9:26 - Yep, we have the latest dust-up over Tucker Carlson 'noticing' and commenting on why the Dems want to let millions of illegals in.
Some Dems have been stupid enough to actually admit in public it will help their demographics eventually at the polls. They want to import millions of Dem voters, and distribute them out to red states.
Ancestry and skin color have nothing to do with it, but if you talk about it....
RACISM!

Speaking of socialism.....spoken or otherwise.....looks like somebody has been co-opted.


BLM Founder Branded "Fraud" After Buying Million-Dollar Home In Mostly-White LA Enclave

..."trained Marxist" buys $1.4 million home in area with only 1.4% black population...


When asked, why Topanga Canyon? Cullors reportedly said that “she and her spouse were considering Truckee , CA but didn’t think they could find suitable employment at any of the local non-profits. That SBC....easier to get into to Harvard than work there if you’re black”.


(Well probably not.....but that’s how the voices in my head said it went!)😀

Here's an idea,, just load all the C17s we have with loose denro, and open the door over Honduras.(or any given central American banana republic) It will do just as much good.

Don! Yup,, let's relive the 70's!!
"Biden should remember well what life was like during the Carter administration. And he should also remember that Carter went down in a landslide defeat in 1980, losing 41 of 50 states—including Biden’s Delaware—to Ronald Reagan."

Just change the name Reagan to Trump. ( Trump Jr. if need be)
Biden is well on the road to that.

As of now, it's a toss up for worst Prez.. Biden or "O"..
Both are/were job killers, both now how to piss away money as if they just had prostate surgery.

I am old enough to remember when the word ‘infrastructure’ mean infrastructure....like a year ago. With the Lefties twisting and contorting every word, I am not so certain that the infrastructure bill contains but a passing reference to infrastructure. Hard to keep up

Police Chief: “I am calling it a riot.”
Mob and mob media: “DON’T DO THAT!”

‘WATCH: Police chief heckled for calling Brooklyn Center riot a 'riot'
After riots, looting, and vandalism broke out in the Minnesota city of Brooklyn Center on Sunday night, police were told not to call the riot that ensued a "riot."

"Just so everyone's clear," Chief Tim Gannon began, "I was front and center at the protest, at the riot."

Those assembled piped up and interrupted him, saying that there was no riot.
"It was not a riot," one woman said.
Another chimed in "Don't do that," echoing the sentiment from the summer of 2020 when the leftist media concept was that declaring a riot a "riot" was racist.

"There was no riot," another said.
"There was," Gannon replied.
"There was no riot," said still another.

"Officers who were putting themselves in harm's way were being pelted with frozen cans of pop," the chief said.
"They were being pelted with concrete blocks. And yes we had our helmets on, and we had other protecting gear, but yes an officer was injured, hit in the head with a brick.
"That was a Hennepin County Deputy, he was transported to the hospital, so we had to make decisions. We had to disperse the crowd because we couldn't allow our officers to be harmed."“
