One Must Not Gaze Directly Into the Eyes of the Beast

Liberals' Dark Ages

"Welcome to the Dark Ages, Part II. We have slipped into an age of un-enlightenment where you fall in line behind the mob or face the consequences.
How ironic that the persecutors this time around are the so-called intellectuals. They claim to be liberal while behaving as anything but. The touchstone of liberalism is tolerance of differing ideas. Yet this mob exists to enforce conformity of thought and to delegitimize any dissent from its sanctioned worldview. Intolerance is its calling card.
Each week seems to bring another incident. ...
Don't bother trying to make sense of what beliefs are permitted and which ones will get you strung up in the town square. ...
As the mob gleefully destroys people's lives, its members haven't stopped to ask themselves a basic question: What happens when they come for me? If history is any guide, that's how these things usually end."  Kirsten Powers, USA TODAY

White House: Hashtag Diplomic Could Have Shortened WW2

(MFNS) Washington D.C. – In recent weeks, the 'hashtag' has become the most potent and powerful weapon of the most powerful country in the world when it comes to confronting evil and injustice in the modern world.

White House Spokesman Jay Carney, when asked about the administration's use of 'Hastag Diplomacy', commented in todays presidential press briefing that it was a shame the Roosevelt administration didn’t have the benefit of hashtags in the early days of World War II so they could have tweeted some strongly worded messages that could have brought the war to a quicker, more peaceful end.

Carney went on to talk about the awesome power of the hashtag and how it could have devastated Hitler:
“If they had been able to send out tweets like #StopHitler, #DontMakeUsComeOverThere, or #HitlerHasALittleDick, there is no way he wouldn't have crumbled under that pressure! How can you even respond to something like that? I think he would have backed down and would have been content being an asshole to just the Germans.”
“We want to send a strong message to all despots, dictators and warlords around the world. We have a never ending supply of hashtags and we’re not afraid to use them. If you receive one from us, consider yourself warned. And if you don’t get the message…we’ll send out another one!”
In light of the statement from the White House, several terrorist organizations have announced by phone they were disconnecting their internet services or, at the very least, closing out their Twitter accounts so they could deny ever receiving the hashtag threats from the US.

Climate Alarmists Claim Another Scalp

In the very emotional climate debate these days it is hardly possible to have a sensible and balanced exchange of views in academia. If you do not support climate catastrophes you are placed into a deniers box and accused of supporting the interest of the oil industry or you are a man in a senior age and therefore unable to understand the concerns of the younger generations.

"Three weeks ago, a distinguished meteorologist named Professor Lennart Bengtsson joined the advisory board of the Global Warming Policy Foundation – a London-based climate skeptical think tank founded by Margaret Thatcher’s former Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lord Lawson.
This represented a huge coup for the cause of climate skepticism. Formerly an avowed warmist, Bengtsson was by some margin the most distinguished climate scientist to defect to the other side. Why did he do so? Because, like all good scientists, he went with the evidence. Bengtsson’s speciality is climate modelling. Shocked by the increasing divergence between the extreme warming of the climate models’ doomsday predictions and the mild-to-non-existent warming of real world data, Bengtsson realized that he could no longer support the so-called “consensus.”
But now there has been a shocking new development. Bengtsson has been forced to resign his position. Why? Not because he has changed his views on the “consensus,” but because of the reaction of his alarmist former colleagues. He has been subjected to so much bullying because of his “incorrect” thinking that his health has suffered and he was beginning to wonder whether he would ever work again.
Bad news though this may be for poor Professor Bengtsson, I can’t help thinking it’s good news for the cause of climate realism. His vile treatment at the hands of the bullying warmist establishment has, once again, exposed the fundamental dishonesty of the scientists propping up the great global warming scam. True science is about open enquiry not petty bullying, appeals to authority, and the closing down of the argument. Maybe someone should point this out to John Kerry…"

The Reinvigorated Thought Police

In the space of just a few weeks, the quality of American freedom has been cheapened and its future made uncertain by a renewed assault of left-wingers bent on having their own way and running roughshod over all other opinions in the process.  
This intolerance is political. It is issue-driven. It is meant to ensure a leftist agenda prevails despite legality, logic or popular support. They often exaggerate their claims of support by quoting phony polls and statistics said to reinforce their views. 

Despite liberal declarations in 2008 that America was entering a “post-racial” era, the race card seems to be played more than every. Free speech through political contributions (from conservatives, at least) is under fire even though the U.S. Supreme Court, for one, continues to invalidate onerous campaign finance restrictions.  
Americans who have spoken out on the issues of traditional marriage have found themselves attacked, protested and forced out of public and private positions they have earned on merit because they dare to hold views counter to the mob.

These leftist have sought to imprint their opinions on America through the media, public institutions and schools. Anyone who is found to hold beliefs counter to theirs are smeared as racist, traditionalist, sexist or homophobic because what this evil minority has not yet been able to do is stop the exchange of ideas that Americans have come to appreciate and is still guaranteed by our Constitution.
