Open Thread and a Rant



The newest racist slur: calling black women "superheroes," because that implies that they are inexhaustible and here to "save your ass."


CNN, which now claims that all criticism of CNN is Basically Murder, employs Oliver Darcy as one of its Corporate Messaging Officers, who used to criticize CNN all the time when he was working for The Blaze.

Louise Mensch has concluded that Ocasio-Cortez is An Russian Asset too.

Yeah, I know this one is plausible, based on her socialist ideology. But... there are many socialists who didn't work for Russia (at least not as a formal matter). Such as Barack Obama.



Instapundit on the AP's #FakeNews -- and the weak-sister "conservatives" who dependably spread it.



People have spoken of Strong Horses and Weak Horses before.

I want to talk about Calm Horses and Panicky Horses.

Horses are herd animals. If you can panic some of the herd into a stampede, those horses will infect other horses with panic, and they'll start stampeding for no reason. And if you get enough of the horses stampeding, almost all the horses will stampede.

The media is a Progressive Political Operation. It is not news. Or it is "news" as a secondary mission; its primary mission is progressive political ops.

Every day this progressive political operation gets out of the bed of its much older intelligence-community paramour and starts typing for three reasons:

1. To push a progressive political op to improve the morale of their leftwing fellow travelers.

2. To push a progressive political op because their leftwing fellow travelers can be counted on to retweet anything that is anti-Trump or anti-GOP and thus turn this political operation into a profitable enterprise, through political porn clickbait.

3. To push a progressive political op to the Panicky Horses of the very, very nominal right, who are in fact very liberal Republicans, and who can be counted on to retweet progressive political porn clickbait with as much fervor and crazed emotion as actual leftists, knowing that these Panicky Horses of the right can be counted on to stampede based on almost nothing, and then they will cause other people on the right to stampede.

Despite the fact that the very liberal Republicans (who pretend to be the hardest of hrrrdcore conservative Republicans) get "tricked" in this way by their very good progressive media friends every single morning, they continue allowing themselves to be so tricked, and so used, every single day.

Every single day begins with them forgetting that the progressive political ops center has tricked and used them every single day of the last two years.

At some point, it has to be recognized that no one, no matter how stupid, can be "tricked" by the same trick every single fucking day.

At some point, it has to be recognized that these people are not being "Tricked" at all, but are knowing collaborators with the progressive political operations machine.

These people have endless suspicion and contempt for conservatives, and yet endless latitude and trust and sympathy for their dear progressive friends in the leftist media.

That tells you where they are politcally. It doesn't matter what someone claims their policy preferences are.

Which, by the way, they lie about: these liberal Republicans claimed for decades that they rilly, rilly wanted the conservative agenda items the base did, but that political reality dictated that they could not pursue those goals; now that it's revealed that you can in fact win when pursuing such goals, they claim they're no longer interested in "owning the libs" -- their derogatory way of showing contempt for conservative partisans interest in the small matter of actually winning political contests.

They used to claim they rilly, rilly wanted to be super-conservative but had to be squishy liberal Republicans in the interests of #Winning and #OwningTheLibs; now that the rest of the party sees them for the liberals-posing-as-conservatives that they are, they now mock "Owning the libs" and winning in politics as valid goals, despite the fact they used to cite those goals as the reason they could not pursue more conservative-idelogically-pure agenda items.

"Owning the libs" was a good reason to do things in service of a liberal, neocon oriented policy; but "owning the libs" is a horrible, crude, stupid reason to do things when pursuing actual conservative policies.

"Owning the libs" was a great strategy to pursue when it meant blocking conservatives from every having their say. It was used as an ever-handy excuse as to why we could never pursue actual conservative principles.

Now that conservatives are actually having their say, and the liberal wing of the Republican party has butthurt about no longer being the kingmakers, "owning the libs" is something only a vulgarian could wish, and "Conservative Principles" are now the only thing that matters. (And spoiler alert: liberal Republicans' ideas of "conservative principles" might differ from an actual conservative's ideal of conservative principles.)

Anyway -- they lied and lied about their actual policy preferences. Which is now fully revealed, now that the masks have all fallen away.

But even if they were telling the truth -- ideology is the smaller part of political affiliation. The larger part is who you like, who you feel comfortable with, whose opinions and regard matter most to you.

Where your heart is, in other words. Who your friends, both real and On the Internet, are.

And while these Panicky Horse weak sisters continued to falsely claim they're rilly, rilly super hard-core conservatives, every word they speak points up their utter hatred of actual conservatives, their contempt for them, their easy comfort with dropping the left's litany of slurs on them -- bigot, racist, 'phobes of all makes and models.

And meanwhile, they chat up leftwing media types and eagerly retweet their #FakeNews.

Because they trust liberals. And do not trust conservatives.

That tells you where someone really is as far as political affiliation.

I made a decision to stop even looking at the timelines of the Panicky Horses -- panicky because they were always willing to believe the worst of their fellow Republicans, and so believe (naturally) every slur their leftist friends hurl, or panicky because they are anti-Republican operatives themselves, and are deliberately trying to panic the conservative herds -- because I got sick of being panicked every morning by their bullshit.

I immediately began feeling better -- and lost nothing in terms of Real news.

Real news eventually comes out. It may take 12 or 24 or 48 hours, but it does come out.

Better that short delay to see the real news than always be up-to-the-minute with the Panicky Horses' constant injection of bullshit and leftist psyops into the brain.

If you want to see what's gotten me pissy, watch the Very Principled Charlie Sykes' disgraceful performance at an Aspen Ideas conference, casually slurring all Republicans as the party of "white supremacy" and claiming that our only principle now is "owning the libs." A very popular little catchphrase with the weak-sister, Panicky Horse, Democrats posing as Republicans for career purposes set.

I bet the Very Principled Charlie Sykes used to trot out the "we can't pursue that conservative priority because that would mean we'd lose this congressional race and that would mean less owning of the libs" once or twice before.

He was a radio show host. I have to imagine he relied, more than once, on the old "Well I'd love to do that, but we can't Because Political Concerns" argument in selling his listeners on whatever shit sandwich the Republican Establishment was selling us that week.

But now, "owning the libs" is for racist monsters, and now, winning elections is meaningless. Only perfect fidelity to his liberalish ideas of "Conservative Principles" matter now.
