Lib Rag HuffPo Posts Anti-Semitic Screed On Holocaust Remembrance Day…

the-huffington-post

No shame.

Via Breitbart:

On Wednesday, the Huffington Post posted an article by self-described journalist Sophia Eribo that was nothing less than an anti-Semitic screed. The article itself overtly trafficked in Holocaust denial on Holocaust Remembrance Day. But since the Huffington Post routinely crosses over into anti-Semitism, that shouldn’t be any shock.

The piece begins by stating that January 27 was a “time to reflect on the horror that was the Holocaust.” But then it quickly descends into insanity:

But wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was such a day to commemorate the millions of black African victims of slavery? Unlike the “six million” figure that so often goes with statistic about the number of Jews killed during the Second World War, it’s not so easy to quantify when it comes to black slaves.

Yes, the article contained scare quotes around the number six million. Because it’s not like we’re certain that there were that many dead Jews, right? The awkwardness of this open Holocaust pooh-poohing led the Post to issue a rare editor’s note:

Clemson Professors Demand Criminal Prosecution Of “Defamatory” Social Media Posts…

FRANCE-US-INTERNET-IT-IPO-TWITTER

And for good measure a new multi-cultural center and more funding for “under-represented” groups (like LGBTQA) was thrown in.

Via Campus Reform:

More than 100 Clemson University faculty and staff publicly endorsed the criminal prosecution of “predatory behaviors and defamatory speech” by any member of the Clemson community— including social media posts—in an advertisement in the school paper.

One hundred and ten faculty members signed their name in a full page ad on the second page of the The Tiger Thursday morning, declaring support of a list of demands from the Coalition of Concerned Students, a group of students who are actively protesting what they perceive to be racial injustice and inequality across Clemson’s campus.

The faculty are asking for a “public commitment” by Clemson’s administration to “prosecute criminally predatory behaviors and defamatory speech committed by members of the Clemson University community (including, but not limited to, those facilitated by usage of social media).”

The demands also include the construction of a new multi-cultural center, more funding for “under-represented groups” such as LGBTQA and “students of color” student groups, an increase in the percentage of minority faculty members, and diversity training for Clemson’s administration and staff.

Top Obama Adviser John Podesta Caught Up In Major Ethics Violation…

John Podesta

Via Daily Caller:

In 2013, John Podesta was paid $87,000 by a shadowy foreign billionaire whose passion is preventing energy exploration on American land.

Just two years later, Podesta is a member of President Obama’s inner circle, and the driving force inside the White House to block 12 million acres of land in Alaska’s Artic National Wildlife Refuge from oil drilling.

The circumstances suggest Podesta may have run afoul of Obama’s highly-touted ethics pledge, which requires political appointees to disqualify themselves in matters relating to the interests of a former employer or client.

Podesta — who is preparing to leave the White House to take a top position with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign — has largely avoided public scrutiny during his time as a White House Counselor.

But his work came into fuller view earlier this week when he emerged as one of the architects of the new White House policy that seeks to end any future drilling for oil on Alaska’s coastal plain.

In fact, Podesta personally announced the policy in a White House blog post Sunday, waxing poetic that the move would ensure “this wild, free, beautiful, and bountiful place remains in trust for Alaska Natives and for all Americans.”

Keystone XL Pipeline Passes Senate On 62-36 Vote…WH Promptly Declares Obama Will Veto…

President Obama Speaks At Southern Site Of The Keystone Oil Pipeline

Anyone have a count of how many times the WH has used the word “veto” this month?

Via Townhall:

After years of lobbying for its passage — and significant setbacks along the way — the Keystone XL Pipeline has finally passed the upper chamber:

The bill needed 60 votes to pass. It is now heading to the White House. Stay tuned for updates.

UPDATE: This victory will be short-lived:

The White House promptly declared that Mr. Obama would veto the measure — which would force the approval of a proposed 1,179-mile oil pipeline from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico — in a stroke of the pen that is expected to be the opening shot in a series of vetoes of Republican measures.

UPDATE: The legislation earned bipartisan support:

Nine Democrats joined with Republicans to support the bill despite President Barack Obama’s promise to veto it because he thinks the decision should remain up to the executive branch.

Iran Is Encouraging Terror Allies To Assassinate Netanyahu’s Children…

Scumbags.

Via WFB:

Iran is encouraging its terror allies to pursue the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s children by publishing personal information about them, including photographs of the kids lined up in crosshairs, and declaring, “We must await the hunt of Hezbollah.”

The publication of the personal information and biographies of Netanyahu’s children follows an Israeli airstrike last week that killed several key Hezbollah leaders and an Iranian commander affiliated with the country’s hardline Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Iranian military leaders affiliated with the IRGC threatened in recent days harsh retaliation for the strike and promised to amp up support for Hezbollah as well as Palestinian terrorist organizations.

The information was originally published in Farsi by an Iranian website affiliated with the IRGC and quickly republished by Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency.

German Carnival Drops Charlie Hebdo-Inspired Float Over Fears It Could Provoke A Terror Attack…

chariahebdo

Gutless…

(Reuters) – A German carnival has dropped plans to build a “Charlie Hebdo” float with a cartoonist forcing a pencil into the barrel of a terrorist’s gun, after receiving messages from locals worried about safety if the float went on show.

Jitters about public displays of words or images that might anger some Muslims have risen in Europe since Islamist gunmen attacked the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket in Paris on Jan. 7-9, killing 17 people.

Charlie Hebdo had long specialized in ridiculing Islam and other religions and vowed no change in approach after the attack, which prompted marches by millions of people throughout France in tribute to the journal and free expression in general.

Explaining its decision, the carnival committee in Cologne said they wanted to preserve the event’s lighthearted mood in the west German city and make sure no one felt afraid — even though they had been assured by police that displaying the figures would not pose a security risk.

“We want all visitors, locals and participants in Rose Monday’s carnival parade to freely experience a joyful carnival without any worries. We don’t want a satirical float, which weighs on the freedom and lighthearted mood of carnival,” the organizers said in a statement on Thursday.

Politico Labor Reporter Trying To Unionize Politico: “I Can’t Work The Kind Of Hours I Did When I Was 24″ . . . He’s 28-Years-Old…

To give you an idea of what kind of entitled lazy slug Politico labor reporter Mike Elk is [seen above], last year he ran a GoFundMe campaign so little people like us could pay for his vacation.

Via WaPo:

… Precisely what news he was breaking remains to be determined. The Washington Free Beacon reported that “employees” at Politico are pushing to unionize the Rosslyn, Va.-based shop. However, it named only Elk as supporting whatever is afoot here.

As to Elk’s suggestion that he’s running into “almost no opposition” from Politico management, the reason for that could be that there’s little to oppose. In an interview yesterday, Elk told the Erik Wemple Blog that he’s strategizing with Bruce Jett, an organizing consultant at the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild. Jett told the Erik Wemple Blog that “There’s nothing to report” in terms of Politico activity.

Overwork is a problem that Elk plans on addressing in his union drive. “I can’t work the kind of hours I did when I was 24,” says Elk, who is 28. Putting in too many work hours, he says, is a problem of journalism as an industry and not exclusive to Politico. “Everyone works so much, it’s almost tough to get people to get together to talk about” forming a union, he says.

Bodies Of Dead Islamic State Foreign Fighters Piling Up In Iraqi Hospitals As Home Countries Refuse To Take Them…

Feed them to the pigs.

Via Fox News:

Dozens of dead bodies of foreign ISIS recruits are piling up in Iraqi hospitals because their home countries don’t want them and local cemeteries won’t take them either, according to a high official in the nation’s Interior Ministry.

Arabic-language newspaper Akhbar Al Iraq cited an unnamed, high-ranking ministry official who said more than 100 bodies of jihadists from 13 different nations are scattered around in various hospitals in Iraq while the government tries to figure out where and how they will be disposed of. Nations refusing to take back dead fighters’ bodies were not named, but said to include Arab, European and Asian countries.

“Burn them or drown them, we don’t want them,” the official quoted the countries as telling Iraq. “We took away their citizenship.”

Most of the fallen fighters were killed in combat with the Kurdish Peshmerga forces or by coalition air strikes. Some are jihadists who were executed for committing acts of terrorism. Several nations have moved to revoke citizenship of residents known to have left to join Islamic State.

The highest numbers of Islamic State fighters come from the Arab world. Tunisia and Saudi Arabia have each documented more than 1,500 citizens who have joined Islamic State. Western Europe accounted 4,000 fighters, with France leading the rank with nearly 1,200 militants. There have been an estimated few hundred from the United States and Canada.

Update:

Washington (CNN) – The U.S. military and intelligence community now suspect that one of the five Taliban detainees released from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt Bowe Bergdahl in May of last year has attempted to return to militant activity from his current location in Qatar, CNN has learned exclusively. The development has led to an ongoing debate inside the administration about whether there is a new threat from this man, and potentially the other four.

This is the first known suggestion that any of the detainees involved in the exchange may be trying to engage again in militant activity. It comes at a politically sensitive time as the administration has quickened the pace of prisoner release in an effort to encourage the closure of the facility, and the Army must decide in the coming weeks whether and how to punish Bergdahl for leaving his post.

Several U.S. officials across different agencies and branches of the U.S. government have confirmed key details to CNN. The White House referred CNN to the Pentagon, and the Pentagon has declined to comment on the matter.

Libertarian Rag: Chris Kyle “Was No Hero,” He Was A “Competent Government-Hired Killer”…

Kyle

If I said this was from Salon would anyone have thought twice about it?

The American Sniper Was No Hero
– Reason

Despite what some people think, hero is not a synonym for competent government-hired killer.

If Clint Eastwood’s record-breaking movie, American Sniper, launches a frank public conversation about war and heroism, the great director will have performed a badly needed service for the country and the world.

This is neither a movie review nor a review of the late Chris Kyle’s autobiographical book on which the movie is based. My interest is in the popular evaluation of Kyle, America’s most prolific sniper, a title he earned through four tours in Iraq.

Let’s recall some facts, which perhaps Eastwood thought were too obvious to need mention: Kyle was part of an invasion force: Americans went to Iraq. Iraq did not invade America or attack Americans. Dictator Saddam Hussein never even threatened to attack Americans. Contrary to what the George W. Bush administration suggested, Iraq had nothing to do with the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Before Americans invaded Iraq, al-Qaeda was not there. Nor was it in Syria, Yemen, and Libya.

The only reason Kyle went to Iraq was that Bush/Cheney & Co. launched a war of aggression against the Iraqi people. Wars of aggression, let’s remember, are illegal under international law. Nazis were executed at Nuremberg for waging wars of aggression. With this perspective, we can ask if Kyle was a hero.

Defenders of Kyle and the Bush foreign policy will say, “Of course, he was a hero. He saved American lives.”

What American lives? The lives of American military personnel who invaded other people’s country, one that was no threat to them or their fellow Americans back home. If an invader kills someone who is trying to resist the invasion, that does not count as heroic self-defense. The invader is the aggressor. The “invadee” is the defender. If anyone’s a hero, it’s the latter.

Communist Party USA Chairman Vows To Work With Democratic Party To Advance Shared Communist Goals…

cpusa

Via Daily Caller:

The chairman of the National Committee of the Communist Party USA has penned a 2,023-word manifesto making the critical point that American Communists are eager to work with the Democratic Party to advance the modern communist agenda and achieve communist goals.

Communist Party chairman John Bachtell published his essay last week at People’s World, a “daily news website of, for and by the 99% and the direct descendant of the Daily Worker.”

“[L]abor and other key social forces are not about to leave the Democratic Party anytime soon,” Bachtell promised. “They still see Democrats as the most realistic electoral vehicle” to fight against perceived class enemies.

Bachtell, 58, is playing the long political game and he has a strategy, he said.

“First, we are part of building the broadest anti-ultra right alliance possible, uniting the widest array of class (including a section of monopoly), social and democratic forces. This necessarily means working with the Democratic Party,” the communist leader explained.

“Second, our objective is not to build the Democratic Party. At this stage we are about building the broad people’s movement led by labor that utilizes the vehicle of the Democratic Party to advance its agenda,” Bachtell further expounded. “We are about building the movements around the issues roiling wide sections of people that can help shape election contours and debates.”

“[W]e are for building movements in the electoral arena and see engagement in the electoral arena and democratic governance as a vital means to further build movements,” Bachtell also said.

Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch at a confirmation hearing today that the fact that, in support of Planned Parenthood, she had advocated for partial-birth abortion did not “disqualify” her from serving as attorney general of the United States.

“In 2006, you signed an amicus brief supporting Planned Parenthood’s opposition to partial-birth abortion ban; is that correct?” said Graham at Lynch’s confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Islamophobia! Saudi Arabia’s Proposal To Hold Gender-Segregated Olympic Games Shot Down By IOC…

Screen shot 2015-01-29 at 2.28.52 PM

The fact that the Saudis would even ask shows how detached from reality (non-Islamic world) they are.

Via Telegraph:

Saudi Arabia has proposed holding a gender-segregated Olympic Games.

In comments made by Prince Fahad bin Jalawi al-Saud – a consultant to the Saudi Olympic Committee –it was suggested the country could bid jointly with Bahrain, which could host the women’s events.

“Our society can be very conservative. It has a hard time accepting that women can compete in sports,” the Prince told French website Francs Jeux.

“Wearing sports clothing in public is not really allowed. For these cultural reasons, it is difficult to bid for certain big international events.”

In recommendations for reform, published last November, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) opened the door to joint bids in 2020.

But it moved to quickly shoot down Saudi Arabia’s suggestion.

IOC President Thomas Bach released a statement explaining that Saudi Arabia would be denied the chance to bid, unless it complied with rules barring discrimination.

Obama’s Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch: “Tough On Crime” Really Means Tough On Blacks…

You will not be shocked when you hear Lynch is close with Al Sharpton.

Via Daily Caller:

President Obama’s Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch said that being “tough on crime” actually means being tough on black people.

Lynch, currently in Senate confirmation hearings to replace her sorority sister’s husband Eric Holder, expressed some bold racial views at a September 2007 panel at Duke University called “The Court of Public Opinion: The Practice & Ethics of Trying Cases In The Media,” which was convened after the Duke lacrosse rape case, in which three Duke players were falsely accused of sexual assault.

“I guess where you stand depends on where you sit — but even with the statements as a DA I’m going to be tough on crime, there are people who take that and have taken it for years because it has meant for years I’m going to be tougher on African Americans, depending upon the context, depending upon what else is being said in an election, depending upon what other issues are brought out there,” Lynch said.

CAIR Wants Ethics Investigation Into Texas GOP Rep Who Asked Muslims To Renounce Terrorism And Pledge Allegiance To America…

CAIR’s true colors show once again.

Via WaPo:

Freshman state Rep. Molly White (R-Belton) is not in Austin on Thursday to celebrate Texas Muslim Capitol Day. But she left instructions for the staff in her Capitol office on how to handle visitors who are Muslim, including asking them to declare allegiance to the United States.

“I did leave an Israeli flag on the reception desk in my office with instructions to staff to ask representatives from the Muslim community to renounce Islamic terrorist groups and publicly announce allegiance to America and our laws,” she posted on Facebook. “We will see how long they stay in my office.”

Texas Muslim Capitol Day is organized by the Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. On its Web site, the daylong event is described as “an opportunity for community members to learn about the democratic political process and how to be an advocate for important issues.” The agenda calls for sessions about political activism and visits to the offices of state representatives.

Palm Spring Restaurant Owner Asks Waitresses To Speak English In Front Of Customers… Freakout Ensues…

PwEi4sI

As always.

Via Opposing Views:

Printed on a piece of printer paper, the sign might not even get a second glance when one walks by it. But for the Spanish speaking workers in Billy Reed’s restaurant in Palm Spring, California, the sign is an important one.

“Billy Reed’s employees please do not speak Spanish to other employees anywhere in the restaurant except when necessary on the cook line, that means not in the waitress stations or at the front desk.”

This new rule for employees came about after the owner Billy Reed received complaints from customers that they felt “uncomfortable” with hearing some of the employees speaking to each other in Spanish. The customers also expressed concerns that the customers could be talking about them.

For one restaurant employee, the sign is more than just a rule, he thinks it’s discrimination.

“I talk to my co-workers in Spanish, that makes me feel very upset not being able to talk to them in Spanish. I do feel discriminated. I know we are in America. We have to talk in English. At the same time, we speak Spanish, that’s my first language,” the employee told reporters at local station KESQ.

Though Reed confirmed that the sign was indeed posted in the kitchen, he told reporters that the workers wouldn’t be fired if they were caught speaking anywhere else in the restaurant.

Stevie Wonder Uses Funeral For Gospel Legend To Rail Against Racists Thwarting Obama’s Agenda Because He’s Black…

A class act . . . he is not.

Via Fox News:

Stevie Wonder was one of many high profile performers at gospel legend Andraé Crouch’s funeral in Los Angeles on Jan 21. But some funeral attendees were surprised when Wonder made political statements at the event instead of focusing on the Grammy-winning singer’s life and accomplishments.

“Stevie Wonder took the opportunity to say that Obama’s goal of inclusiveness was largely thwarted because of hatred towards him because of his skin color,” a source told FOX411. “And that he supports freedom of speech, but we should make laws against people criticizing religion.”

Wonder’s remarks from the event can be heard in the video below around the 1:20 mark. There, Wonder says: “We live in a time where I believe we have a president that truly wanted to see the world come together, to see this nation come together, but yet too much, too many people are judging their dislike of him based on the color of his skin. And I know there are some who say no that’s not true, but I’m telling you what I see.”

“Yes, I truly believe in freedom of speech, I really really do believe in that,” he added. “But I think if we don’t put some limits to us being able to give praise to that one that we hold sacred, we got a problem.”
