Another Dennis Moore Award Nominee For 2012

Filed under Liberal Fascism, Progressives at December 13th, 2012 - 8:00 am

And the nominee is………….Chris Hayes.

You’ll want to watch the next clip a few times, as it contains almost every liberal canard ever discussed, and manages to see the invention of a few new ones besides. It conflates the right to free speech with the mythical right to be heard, tells a few lies about hydraulic fracturing, which was renamed, “fracking,” in order to make it sound worse, discusses inflicting public policies designed to tweak national behaviors towards a more leftist approved end, and of course our old friend catastrophic climate change is presented as being factual, even though the evidence of such has been discredited more times than the virtues of the Run and Shoot Offense.

What liberalism boils down to in a nutshell, is this. Liberals want people to behave in ways that they would like, and not in ways that people would choose for themselves. They see nothing wrong with using public policy to inflict what they term, “incentives,” in order to, “tweak,” the behavior of others. If, God forbid, those,”tweaks,” do not work in the proscribed manner, more stringent forms of coercion are acceptable. It is based upon what they desire others to want. For instance, if you desire to eat steak with large amounts of soda, and they feel that it’s not fair that you can afford steak and soda, they’ll pass a law that says you must pay a health tax on red meat due to its unhealthy amount of fat content and ban all sugary drinks beyond 4 oz., and levy a carbonated beverage tax to combat global warming.

The truly sad thing about this conversation however, besides the fact that these buffoons are discussing in so cavalier a manner the dispossession of Trillions of dollars of wealth from American citizens, for no other reason than to make their idiotically inefficient energy sources considered a viable alternative by people who wish to stay warm during the winters and travel back and forth to work, is that this represents truly, a regressive form of taxation. This will be disproportionately more burdensome on the poor, and will not in the slightest affect the likes of those discussing this nefarious plot. Chris Hayes, I guarantee you, will be driving the same exact gas guzzling vehicle, without carpooling, into and out of New York each and every day. George Clooney and his pals will still be tooling around on their private jets lecturing the rest of us about saving the planet just as smugly as ever, while we get to freeze to death during the winter because algae can’t heat our homes after all.

Don’t worry though, I’m sure that after they get this set of policies passed, someone will pass a tax that punishes the, “middle class,” for breathing so that we get to pay for the heat and such of the poor. So, in the end, our prize will be this. Not only will we get to pay more for our own fuel and energy, we’ll get to pay more for the fuel and energy of those who are liberal approved wards of the state as well. Meanwhile the elites who gave us these gifts, will live their lives of elite judgement of all right and wrong completely unfettered by the consequences of the policies so happily inflicted upon you and me, wondering why we are not more thankful for the things they let us keep.

Elections have consequences America, and these idiots being taken seriously represent only a few of the last couple.

    Um, “fracking”, at least when properly spelled (“fracing” -- there’s no “k” in the word “fracture”), is a longstanding oilfield term. So in all fairnes, one can’t blame these morons for using the general term.

    Of course, there’s a boatload of other crap to blame them for, so dropping this one minor item won’t make any difference.

    The EU is running a field test in Scandinavia with smart grids. This is the totalitarian surveillance society by private groups created by an artificially man made shortage of energy. If this will be adopted as a rule it is a nightmare come true for every citicen and the end of the last little freedom we have.

    @ Mike C.:

    Don’t read the headline, please :-P

    Britain has given the green light to gas “fracking”, just days after David Cameron said the controversial technique could help bring down household energy bills. Edward Davey, the Energy Secretary, this morning lifted a ban on the drilling for shale gas, which was put in place after the UK’s first project near Lancashire caused tremors last year. His decision will allow companies to explore for the new energy source across swathes of countryside in the south, north-west and north-east of England. The first company to drill for Britain’s shale gas – Cuadrilla Resources – will now be able to resume its operations near Blackpool, with new controls guarding against the risk of mini earthquakes.

    pfft. Big Deal. Our gov’t isn’t even pretending.

    An article in the WSJ this morning told the story of a change in the way the National Counterterrorism Center can use government databases. “This is a sea change in the way that the government interacts with the general public.” -- Chief Privacy Officer of the Dept of Homeland Secuirty.
    NCTC is now allowed to obtain copies of govt databases to “fish” for terrorists that were previously only accessible for probable cause. This includes flight records, casino employee lists, names of citizens hosting foreign exchange students and others.

    The WSJ article is subscription-only. This post points to the new “guidelines” for the NCTC.

    No more “probable cause” requirements for data searches by the Dept of Homeland Security…

    I disagree. Some are idiots, but many have been manipulated into being scared of Republicans. I know people who voted for Obama because they are genuinely scared of the GOP. I am dead serious. Coldwarrior and Speranza also encountered this phenomenon.

    That doesn’t preclude their being idiots. They are scared of the Republicans? The Democrats are going to put them in chains! The Democrats are the ones to be scared of. They are the totalitarians.

    @ Iron Fist:

    Not even 51%, Fist. People concentrate on the percentage Romney lost by and not the fact that Obama didn’t even get 51% of the vote. Barely a majority, and 7,000,000 votes fewer than he got the last go round, despite the fact that the MSM impressed upon Obama voters that the Republicans were highly motivated to get Romney elected and hourly reports on election day how Republican districts were getting high turnouts.

    BTW we have a new thing going on over at Weasel Zippers which is hilarious. Libturds are going onto dead news threads and posting their little screeds. Did you all know for instance, that Obama is more right wing and conservative than Reagan? Gee, we learn something new every day.

    @ Iron Fist:

    All you need to see is what happened in the last two/three days. No reports in the MSM of the union violence in Michigan -- the destruction and the vandalism. I waited to see reports on the attack and harassment of the hot dog vendor. Didn’t find one. Why? If nothing else, the story that people chipped in and contributed over $22,000 to help the guy, and continued to do so after the goal of $5,000 to replace his equipment was reached.

    The MSM does love that Koch Brothers boogeyman and Americans for Prosperity yet somehow a bastard like George Soros, with his phoney front group like Media Matters -- well those are okay, folks. Nothing to see here about the guy who’s been trying to buy a President since 2000 and finally succeeded in 2008. If our currency collapses, his fingers will be all over it.

    They are not all idiots. The Bush Administration has given them a bad impression of the GOP. Then people like Akins saying Rape is OK and Santorum calling for banning contraceptives has given people a bad impression.

    Here is the truth. There has not been a successful Republican Presidency since Reagan. People do not have memory of good times under Republicans. People remember the Clinton years and that is why Obama is cut some slack.

    Republicans are not putting forward a positive vision for the future. They just say what they are against and just bitch and whine. The Democrats use this negativity to scare people.

    It’s something the GOP needs to address. But I am at the point of giving up on the GOP. I think only a massive electoral defeat will wake them up.


  21. 21 | December 13, 2012 10:01 am

    BTW folks, Nancy Pelosi wants you all to know that Republicans have no appreciation for Kwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanza.

    I imagine if someone grabbed Nancy (revolting thought) in the hallway of the Sam Rayburn building, she’d do her sputter routine if asked to explain what in fact Kwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanza is all about.

    But the results spoke for themselves. people laughed at the media back then because Reagan was able to communicate and proved. The 2 Republican Presidents that followed could not even speak simple sentences and had failed policies.

    Reaganw as 30 years ago and the Right needs to move on. It’s time to look forward to the future and put out a positive agenda.

    @ Flyovercountry:

    Most people don’t care about the fabricated holiday Kwanzaa. The reason Pelosi is mentioning this is so Conservatives get in an uproar. It’s a trick and Pelosi should be ignored.

    Democrats play the role of matador and use red cape issues to make the Republican bull charge. Works everytime!

    Great news: Your permanent record is now available on demand

    Remember when government needed something called a warrant or even probable cause to look at your records? Good times, good times. I’m nostalgic for the halcyon days of, er, February of this year, before the Attorney General of the United States signed off on an order allowing the government to access pretty much everything it wanted in the name of counterterrorism. The Wall Street Journal found out about the order and got a FOIA request to force its exposure:

    Top U.S. intelligence officials gathered in the White House Situation Room in March to debate a controversial proposal. Counterterrorism officials wanted to create a government dragnet, sweeping up millions of records about U.S. citizens—even people suspected of no crime.

    Not everyone was on board. “This is a sea change in the way that the government interacts with the general public,” Mary Ellen Callahan, chief privacy officer of the Department of Homeland Security, argued in the meeting, according to people familiar with the discussions.

    A week later, the attorney general signed the changes into effect.

    Through Freedom of Information Act requests and interviews with officials at numerous agencies, The Wall Street Journal has reconstructed the clash over the counterterrorism program within the administration of President Barack Obama. The debate was a confrontation between some who viewed it as a matter of efficiency—how long to keep data, for instance, or where it should be stored—and others who saw it as granting authority for unprecedented government surveillance of U.S. citizens.

    The rules now allow the little-known National Counterterrorism Center to examine the government files of U.S. citizens for possible criminal behavior, even if there is no reason to suspect them. That is a departure from past practice, which barred the agency from storing information about ordinary Americans unless a person was a terror suspect or related to an investigation.

    Now, NCTC can copy entire government databases—flight records, casino-employee lists, the names of Americans hosting foreign-exchange students and many others. The agency has new authority to keep data about innocent U.S. citizens for up to five years, and to analyze it for suspicious patterns of behavior. Previously, both were prohibited. Data about Americans “reasonably believed to constitute terrorism information” may be permanently retained.

    It looks like the people warning how the “war on terror” could be used against Americans were right!

    Yes and No. This was not done through the Patriot Act or DHS. This was done by Erick Holder and the DOiJ… (Department of Injustice)


  33. 33 | December 13, 2012 10:44 am

    @ doriangrey:

    More than a subtle point. Most especially since Eric Holder and the Obama regime began redefining terrorism and terrorists so fervently in the ancient date of January of 2009. Remember, that’s when the Tea Parties were labeled as gathering places for domestic terrorists plotting their evil infliction of Constitutional Principles upon the remainder of American Society.


  34. 34 | December 13, 2012 10:44 am

    @ Rodan:

    The MSM was caught off-guard when Reagan died. They didn’t believe the outpouring of grief at our loss, even though he had been out of the public’s eye for over a decade. CSPAN trumped everyone -- covering the funeral, etc. By the time the media caught on, they were roundly ignored by the public that loved Reagan.

    Of course, once he was buried and it was “back to normal” the documentaries and the shows denegrated him began anew.
