  • The Spiritual Deadness of the Left

    The American Spectator ^ | February 6, 2017 | Judah Friedman
    There is no logic. There are no facts. You can say blue, and they will hear white. One plus one equals cat. Calling the left mentally ill is truly a disservice to those who are mentally ill. At least with mental illness there’s a reason for the madness and a hope for a cure. There is no hope for the left. They are suffering from a deep-rooted spiritual sickness, one for which, I’m afraid, there is no cure. When you compare a United States President to a creature who killed 6 million Jews and 5 million others, what exactly is...

    Original Material | 1/22/2016 | By Laz A. Mataz
    The downside of the 2016 Trump victory is this: For four -- and possibly eight -- years, we will have to endure the daily distortions, perversions, and misrepresentations of absolutely anything Donald Trump says. Case in point: President Trump, in his Inaugural address, said that from now on we will put America first. The left immediately jumped on this one phrase, noting that it was used by Charles Lindberg and isolationists in World War II who wanted us not to enter the war. Thus, they extrapolate, Trump is an anti-Semite who loves Hitler and wants to be a Nazi. Let...

Maybe cooler heads prevailed, realizing what they would have had on their hands! Check out Judd’s performance at the DC Women’s March today. After cutting off Michael Moore, she proceeded to histrionically channel a diatribe on behalf of a young woman from Tennessee that was laden with Hitler and Nazi references to Trump and the Republicans: “a man whose words are a death trap to America . . .

    Madrid (AFP) - Pope Francis warned against populism, saying it could lead to the election of "saviours" like Hitler. In an hour-long interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais conducted as Donald Trump was being sworn in as US president, the pontiff also condemned the idea of using walls and barbed wire to keep out foreigners. "Of course crises provoke fears and worries," he said but added that for him "the example of populism in the European sense of the word is Germany in 1933. "Germany... was looking for a leader, someone who would give her back her identity and there...

    A San Francisco man protested Donald Trump's astounding presidential victory by mounting a Nazi flag above his house on Wednesday. The Dolores Heights homeowner, who asked to remain anonymous, stressed that he neither supports the President-elect nor Nazis. Instead the red flag with the Swastika was akin to a harbinger of trouble that Trump's win could usher in. The flag was taken down around 2 p.m. Wednesday and replaced with a California flag after the homeowner received angry phone calls and was confronted by an irate neighbor. The woman told him that she was very hurt because her grandparents were...

It’s fascinating (and, hopefully, instructive) to think of the tenor of those turbulent times in Germany and how Hitler came to power. His specialty: huge rallies, stoking the fears of angry masses (especially fears of minorities), and...

It was meant to be a chance for the heads of Germany’s rising far-right party to meet face-to-face with leaders of the Muslim community for clear-the-air talks. […] AfD leader Frauke Petry “wants to go further along the path of populism, defamation and above all prejudice,” Aiman Mazyek, president of the Central Council of Muslims, said after the meeting in Berlin. For her part, Petry claimed Mazyek and his colleagues were calling for her to override the democratic...

Johnson, the most prominent political figure arguing that Britain should leave the EU, says the past 2,000 years of European history have been dominated by doomed attempts to unify the continent and recreate the Romans’ golden age. “Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods,” he was quoted by...

    The puzzling trend that has some evangelicals jumping on the Donald Trump bandwagon is puzzling to me. When I express my concern, I am sometimes given an argument that goes something like this: “We’re not electing a pastor, we’re choosing a president.” The idea being that to expect the kind of “saintly” behavior, rhetoric, and demeanor demanded of the clergy in a politician is not a standard we should apply. That’s partly true, particularly when it comes to purely theological and spiritual issues. But when it comes to things like character and integrity, standards highlighted in scripture for those who...

We can only imagine the excesses that followed. DiCaprio is -- we believe -- a vegan. Gwyneth Paltrow claims that he was the one who set her on the path to spirulina-munching virtue.

Thousands more he kept alive and mercilessly tortured to death during experiments intended to create an Aryan super-race. Much of Mengele’s “medical research” was conducted on children and newborns – especially twins.

    A professor at Brooklyn College recently published a series of articles on the official campus website in which he associated climate change skeptics with early Holocaust deniers."I make my 'climate change denier' claim for one reason," wrote Micha Tomkiewicz, the Director of Environmental Studies at Brooklyn College and himself a Holocaust survivor. "It's easy today to teach students to condemn the Holocaust, but it's much more difficult to teach them how to try to prevent future genocides...I don't want my grandchildren to die in a climate change genocide that we could have helped head off," he continued. Tomkiewicz, also warned...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown has apologized for a speech in which he invoked the names of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin while he criticized Republican efforts in Ohio and Wisconsin to curtail the power of public-employee unions to bargain with state and local governments. In a statement yesterday, the Ohio Democrat said he is "passionate about fighting for the middle class. Ohio's teachers and nurses and police and firefighters are facing the loss of their collective-bargaining rights, and I think that's wrong." "But in speaking about this, I should not have mentioned the hostility of tyrants like Hitler...

    Via Breitbart, I’m trying to decide if this is more or less stupid than the left’s 2008 historical talking point that Jesus/Obama was a community organizer whereas Pilate/Palin was a governor. (That one made it all the way to the House floor.) No worries, though: Brown clarifies by saying that he’s not comparing Scott Walker to those guys — although, as we know, some of his fellow travelers outside the state Capitol are — but rather noting that unions appear to be an integral component of freedom. Is that so? Hitler and Stalin went after them not because they were...

    The Memphis Democrat has been called out by Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show" for his "wrong" choice of words. He's gone toe-to-toe with Anderson Cooper on CNN, who called him a hypocrite. Rush Limbaugh called him "pathetic." And people across the spectrum have called on him to apologize. His newfound notoriety stems from a Tuesday night speech in which Cohen called Republicans' talking point about "a government takeover of health" the kind of repeated "big lie" Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels perfected.

    They don’t like the truth, so they summarily dismiss it,” he says. “They say it’s a government takeover of health care — a big lie. Just like Goebbels. You say it enough, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, you repeat the lie, and eventually people believe it. Like ‘blood libel,’’’ he said, pounding his fist on the dais. “That’s the same kind of thing. The Germans said enough about the Jews and the people believed it and you had the Holocaust. You tell a lie over and over again. And we’ve heard it on this floor — ‘government...

    The guy who put his foot on the head of an anti-Paul protester and pushed should be made to answer to the law. Period. That doesn't mean Chris Matthews had to break out the tired Nazi metaphor. But he did. On this evening's Hardball, after rolling tape of the incident that occurred outside the Kentucky senatorial debate last night, Matthews dredged up the creakiest cliché in politics.

    In a shocking Civil Beat report, Neil Abercrombie denounces his opponents as Nazis and enemies of civil rights. He points to ousted Broken Trust Trustee Dickie Wong as an example of “people coming together.” Godwin’s Law applies: "As a discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 100%. Once such a comparison is made, the discussion is finished and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically ‘lost’ whatever debate was in progress.” According to Godwin, Neil Abercrombie, with the polls slipping, has now flipped out and “lost” the debate.

    Via the Blaze. Isn’t this the same Benjamin Jealous who spent a week in July appearing on any chat show that would have him in order to lament the destructive impact of incendiary rhetoric by some tea partiers? And now he’s playing with … Kristallnacht analogies?

    A video showing protesters outside an Americans For Prosperity event has surfaced on the internet. It shows the protestors with signs depicting Sarah Palin and Glenn beck with Hitler mustaches and the label “Naz-Tea Party” over their pictures. Also depicted as Hitler is GOP candidate Adam Kinzinger running against Rep. Debbie Halvorson (IL-D) in the 11th District in Illinois. As protests go, it’s a bit limp and poorly attended, but the offensive and inflammatory signs certainly grab your attention. Especially considering the Democratic Party and the NAACP’s very high-profile condemnation of inflammatory signs that have appeared at Tea Party events....

    (IsraelNN.com) “John McCain's decision to select a vice presidential running mate that endorsed Pat Buchanan for President in 2000 is a direct affront to all Jewish Americans. Pat Buchanan is a Nazi sympathizer with a uniquely atrocious record on Israel, even going as far as to denounce bringing former Nazi soldiers to justice and praising Adolf Hitler" Jewish US Congressman Robert Wexler criticized John McCain’s Friday announcement of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, saying that it is an insult to Jews. Wexler, an ultra-left representative from Florida, cited Palin's endorsement of Pat Buchanan - whom Wexler called...
