Obama Weasels Ripped Glenn’s Flesh




Posted at 18:10 by Tintin

Shorter InstaHick, Pee in My Jammies Media:
Why Obama Should Resign

  • As a law professor, I can state with authority that activities designed to ridicule or harm Muslims cannot under any circumstances be deemed to be a violation of probation.

Poor InstaHick. After almost four years of biting his lip and refraining from saying anything bad about the Muslim Dictator in Chief in the White House, he has now been finally pushed over the edge and has no choice but to call for Obama’s resignation. Press reports indicate that the InstaHick post in question sent shock waves through the White House and that Obama is huddled with his closest advisors determining a possible time frame for his resignation. Reportedly, a “You Won’t Have Barry Obama to Kick Around Anymore” speech is in the works, which Obama is planning to deliver before a helicopter whisks him off the lawn of the White House and back to his real, and soon to be permanent, home in Kenya.

By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated [his] oath [of office].

Who knew that Obama — in addition to having all Muslims in the Middle East under his command — also is running the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department? And you might have wondered why Obama, instead of sending his FBI and Secret Service storm troopers and flying monkeys out to round up this guy, decided to use some county sheriffs instead. Well, Glenn tells you that too: because the sheriffs have brown uniforms! They’re brown shirts! Literally!! Apparently when someone suggested to Obama that he send some U.S Marshalls instead of L.A County Sheriffs, Obama became enraged, shouting “I want Brown Shirts,” before goose stepping down the hall while loudly singing the Horst-Wessel-Lied.

You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.)

Sure. Don’t they know about the Muslim-bashing exception to probation violations? Don’t they know that this exception prohibits even asking questions about the violation? How can Obama flaunt the law so blatantly?

Of course, no Instahick post would be complete without a “Heh” moment:

And reader Paul Crabtree writes: “Although the midnight raid to punish free speech is beyond deplorable, I guess we should be relieved that the Nobel Prize winner didn’t order a drone strike on his house.” Heh. We probably don’t have to worry about those . . . in the first term.

The best thing that can come of this is that Perfesser InstaCracker will, fearing for his life, take to his roof with his rifle and spend the next four years shooting in the air at the unseen Obama drones coming to snuff him out. Heh.

    Not surprising that Glenn Reynolds turns a blind eye to the fact that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is (1) a documented alien on our soil, and (2) under probation for being involved in a credit card and banking fraud case, who would have been deported or imprisoned long ago had he not cooperated with the DOJ.

    Double ditto what Thread Bear said.

    But Obama’s behavior — and that of his enablers in the press — has laid down a marker for those who are paying attention. By these actions he is, I repeat, unfit to hold office.

    He REPEATS before he says it for the first time. You can’t do that!

    So is this:

    I own some brown shirts. A rich chocolate-brown shirt goes well with jeans, or khakis, or various slacks. They may complement my unpleasantly pink (not literally white) skin. Nazis’ shirt-reasoning was probably similar.

    But more importantly: Nakoula’s martyrdom reminds me of that Zimmerman dirtbag. Both of them are made men now. If wingnuts were defending them out of principle, out of disinterested concern for legal rights even the worst among us should enjoy, why they’d be defending others as well — ideological enemies in a pickle, folks who did not shoot black kids or make anti-Islamic movies, etc. Selectivity matters. One can only defend on so many fronts, and it’s always interesting to see which battles the Right chooses. The Nakoula cause is not a stand-in for our civil rights — nobody should let that assertion go unmocked. It doesn’t pass the “logic test,” — better than Instapundit’s “smell test,” which speaks to his motivations, and carries negative weight.

    When your behavior puts you in danger of being arrested, the rule is to lay low, out of the public eye. Nakoula broke that rule into a billion pieces and fed them into an atom-smasher. He gave all kinds of people reason to look into his identity and background, after rendering himself vulnerable to legitimate legal action. Fucking brilliant …

    You expect Glenn Reynolds, “The Instapundit” to start caring about the faithfulness and appropriateness of metaphors now? He’d have to learn some history first. Which means he’d have to read something besides robot porn. Which he has decided he will never do again.

    I do not take my vague mistrust of the right wing and construct elaborate paranoid fantasies and publish them on line under a “clever” nom de plume using my stature as a dead-end-jobbed database programmer at a minor local manufacturer to lend my jeremiads the credibility they would not otherwise deserve. I don’t pretend that my professional and leisure accomplishments lend me an expertise in economics and politics unavailable to the professionals.

    What I’m trying to say is that the term “instapundit” itself is an insult to the actual concept of expertise. If every field were instantly accessible to the well educated reasonably smart person, Republicans wouldn’t be elected to any position more responsible than dogcatcher, and even that would be a one-term rabies-shortened career. That freaking hack ought to be shoring up the concept of credentialism, as his law and education credentials are the only reason people listen to him in the first place. It’s not like he couldn’t defer to the so called expertise of equally deluded crypto-fascist hacks in other the fields he pretends to be informed enough to comment on.

I had to pull the ten inch chefs and foot long carving. It was — literally — a night of long knives, just to prepare my — literally — last supper.

    OT, but I am still confused by this whole “47% of Americans don’t pay taxes” line. How do they get that statistic? Even when I was a grad student earning < 25K/year on a (taxable) fellowship, I had to pay (federal income) taxes. Are they counting kids in that 47% or something? Or are they counting joint filers funny — if Billy Bob and Peggy Sue file jointly, that means 50% of that household is paying taxes if they each have income but only file one return?

    If 47% of income earning Americans are not paying income taxes, then there is something majorly wrong with our economy and "cutting a few regulations and lowering taxes on the super-wealthy" just ain't gonna make a difference?

    I also like Mitt's shout-out to Road to Serfdom style reasoning in his recently publicized remarks. Increasing dependence on government will lead to totalitarianism? Do the Hayek regurgitators on the right even know what happens in actual, bona fide serfdom? The 1% control everything … and I mean everything. Wealth redistribution leads to serfdom? Well, that wealth doesn’t seem to be able to redistribute itself and when you have economic equilibria at Pareto distributions of wealth, well, you have serfdom, or something equivalent, dontcha?

    PM,

    Thanks for the link.

    BTW, I have even heard Democrats complaining about how entitled kids today feel. Do I feel entitled? Hell yes! I work hard for my money (although not as hard as someone doing actual physical labor and getting paid even less than me) and I expect to at least be able to have the same lifestyle and socioeconomic status that my parents did when they were my age.

    And while I am happy for all the things that I have that didn’t even exist back then (desktop computers more powerful than an Apple IIE, the intertubez, access to decent produce rather than whatever pre-fab stuff they sell at supermarkets), the fact is that I couldn’t afford to buy the home I grew up in on my income (or a comparable home in the metro-area where I live now), etc. I do not have what I grew up with, I worked hard to try to achieve the ‘Murkin dream, I go to religious services regularly and other than the fact that I’m not one of them entrepreneurs (you can’t have a society where everyone works for themselves anyway — I know of societies where everyone has their own personal hustle and there is a name for them — third world countries), I am pretty much living the life that Republicans say Americans should live. And what do I get for it? So you betcha I feel entitled!

    Well … it could be worse … if the Republicans were fully in charge, it would make things even worse for those of us who the Republicans are saying are doing everything right: the small businesswoman who cannot even afford to hire her husband because he can’t afford to pay for fringe benefits due to unregulated health care costs and someone has to have a job that comes with health insurance for the family, the teacher who gives his all to his students yet gets blamed when his hungry students can’t answer questions on a test that have nothing to do with what his students actually need to learn for either college, the workplace or even to be a good, educated citizen, the worker at a non-profit who strives to ensure that the needs of the poor are taken care of by private charity rather than government handouts — all of these people, who are doing everything the GOP claims to want Americans to do, will get further screwed by the GOP.

Any Democrat mouthing that crap should be swiftly pounded in the grill.

One night they actually charged a cover for some new band. They almost didn’t go in because FIVE DOLLARS! but decided to just to see what the fuss was about.

    Turned out to be The Sex Pistols. He says it was a real eye-opener. I bring it up because Punk was at least partly a reaction to the overproduced sappy crap that was being pushed by the record companies back then. I mean seriously, Bread? Some things never change.

    I hope young Americans feel entitled to decent lives. I know I do.

    The term “redistribution” bugs the hell out of me. Distribution is a social thing we do. It is the means by which we have rich and poor folks. There is no God-given or natural state of affairs to be disrupted re: distribution of goods, services, privileges, or rights. There is only social life, political economy, which is then subject to all manner of mystification by self-seeking and deluded people. All this is true whether you favor markets to any degree.

    Conservatives are fighting for a neo-feudalistic world system. (Much could be said about how the roles of agriculture and land-holding have changed, and how aspects of feudalism could be seen in our industrial / information age, but I’ll hold back.) Conservatives’ constant talk about “dependency” focuses entirely on government, and our democratic government at that. However flawed, these are among the least troublesome forms of (merely partial) dependency yet devised. In their place, conservatives would revive or compel (quite thorough) dependency on authoritarian concentrations of private power, from the family on up to multinationals bigger than most nation-states. This is truly the road to modern-day serfdom.

    That’s not really fair–Nirvana was a post-punk thing, and still had a pretty punky sound with Nevermind. Soundgarden was anything BUT mopey, and Pearl Jam’s first album was a clinic on bluesy rock and roll music. Smashing Pumpkins–borderline. There’s some stuff from them (like the absolute masterpiece Bullet with Butterfly Wings) that I still love to hear to this day. There was a lot of heavy heavy distortion, but that was FAR preceded by Black Sabbath (who Soundgarden quoted as their biggest influence, sound-wise). Honestly, most of that grungy stuff was rehashed Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin stuff, which tsam like muchly!

    There was a lot of drippy, depressing shit out then, too, but this shit on the radio (the uber-sensitive douchebag with fucking acoustic guitar and lots and lots to say on the subject of love and relationships) has all but chased me off of popular music.

    Punk was only necessary from a rock -centric perspective anyway. It was never the case that people had to be rescued from Bread, or prog rock, or sappy pop rock music. By the 70s there was lots to choose from besides mainstream rock. But to each his own.

I wrote a passable poem about going forward after such a tragedy and set it to music. Being the only kid who bothered writing an original musical composition, they gave me an award for it. So I can indeed honestly say I am an award winning composer, even if I had no real competition for said award.

    Yeah? You’re an idiot, remember.

    In 1977 I had hair down to my shoulders, quiana shirts, puka shell necklace and even had a jump suit (though I throughly eschewed the funky high heel shoe/boots). One night a friend came over to the apartment raving about “you gotta hear this bootleg shit!” Next day I had a buzzcut and a gold safety pin pierced through my eyebrow (at a jaunty angle, natch). Threw out all that other shit. The Sex Pistols did that to me.

    Being a guitar player and hearing 3 or 4 of the greatest guitar solos ever done helps a whole bunch as well. There is an element of pedantry and snobbery involved.

    Time, Comfortably Numb, Echoes and Shine On You Crazy Diamond…

    As to Pink Floyd, the biggest Pink Floyd fans in my college days were some honest to goodness Jesus Freaks straight out of the 1960s/1970s (they must have been completely unaware that it was the 1990s outside): outside of classes it seemed that all they did was listen to Pink Floyd and have “Bible Study”(*). Well, I’m pretty sure they smoked pot too.

    * which didn’t seem to involve so much actually studying the Bible as quoting verses here and there and talking about Jesus. This should have prepared me for my mother-in-law who, for all her spending time “studying the Bible”, doesn’t seem to know basic facts like how the Passover observance commemorates the exodus from Egypt.

    Barret’s The Madcap Laughs album has some cool lyrics here and there. The English nonsense tradition and psychedelia obviously go hand-in-hand, and Syd can work that angle well, but it gets creepy and a bit sad.

    As far as English psychedelia goes, I prefer these guys to Floyd. It’s weird to bring them up in a thread… I’ve been watching the shit out of their videos for the last couple of days.

    I live to serve… it’s amazing how a bunch of amphetamine-wired drunkards could write such sophisticated lyrics. For example, the word “reds” in that song works equally well as a political or a drug reference, and “Spanish wine” could refer to overseas military aid in the “Troubles”.

    I think I definitely have an appreciation for that sort of stuff, which is why I like Gizzly Bear. I think their stuff is sort of intricate. Like music tapestry. Thinking deeply about music, enjoying its complexity? I definitely don’t think that’s just a musician thing.

    I don’t know what channel it was on, nor how we managed to catch it – we hardly ever watch anything outside of a very small handful of channels – but I can recommend http://www.amazon.com/Pink-Floyd-Story-Wish-Were/dp/B007X6ZRMA/ref=tmm_dvd_title_0

    Interviews with Waters, Mason, Gilmour, historical stuff with Wright, lots more. For a Floyd fan, especially a Wish You Were Here fan, it’s a must see.

    Apparently, the premier of Red Dawn 2.0 is Sept. 27. It’s showing at Fantastic Fest in Austin. It’s unclear to me if there’s distribution beyond that showing. We may be doomed to a Youtube clips party.

    In the meantime, I had a nice time using the Citizen Alert poster generator on the Red Dawn site: http://www.reddawnmovienews.com/.

    I always got a laugh out of the original Red Dawn. Forget securing major ports, bridges and transportation centers.

    The Soviets were going to task an elite airborne unit to secure Podunkville Colorado, population 150, strategic value approximately 0.

    I guess Red Dawn was invented for the people who invented/popularized the term “flyover states.” Folks who never take the painful step of wondering why coastal elites would just ignore you.

    It’s somehow the same conceit. The invaders targeted Podunk, Colo. because their pre-invasion analyses determined that Real Americans lived there, in the Heartland. Washington, D.C. wouldn’t understand, conveniently, and so left the front door wide open (the backdoors I guess being your precious strategic targets).

    The bird called bustard flies away at the sight of a horse, and a hart runs away at the sight of a ram, as also of a viper.
    An elephant trembles at the hearing of the grunting of a hog, so doth a lion at the sight of a cock; and panthers will not touch them that are anointed all over with the broth of a hen, especially if garlic hath been boiled in it.
    There is also enmity betwixt foxes and swans, bulls and jackdaws.
    Amongst birds, also, some are at perpetual strife one with another, as also with other animals, as jackdaws and owls, the kite and crows, the turtle and ring-tail, egepis and eagles, harts and dragons.
    Also amongst water animals there is enmity, as betwixt dolphins and whirlpools, mullets and pikes, lampreys and congers.
    Also the fish called pourcontrel makes the lobster so much afraid that the lobster, seeing the other but near him, is struck dead.
    The lobster and conger tear one the other.
    The civet cat is said to stand so in awe of the panther that he hath no power to resist him or touch his skin; and they say that if the skins of both of them be hanged up one against the other, the hairs of the panther’s skin fall off.
    And Orus Apollo saith in his hieroglyphics, if any one be girt about with the skin of the civet cat that he may pass safely through the middle of his enemies and not at all be afraid.
    Also the lamb is very much afraid of the wolf and flies from him. And they say that if the tail or skin or head of a wolf be hanged upon the sheep-coate the sheep are much troubled and cannot eat their meat for fear.
    And Pliny makes mention of a bird, called marlin, that breaks crows’ eggs, whose young are so annoyed by the fox that she also will pinch and pull the fox’s whelps, and the fox herself also; which when the crows see, they help the fox against her, as against a common enemy.
    The little bird called a linnet, living in thistles, hates asses, because they eat the flowers of thistles.
    Also there is such a bitter enmity betwixt the little bird called esalon and the ass that their blood will not mix together, and that at the braying of the ass both the eggs and young of the esalon perish.
    There is also such a disagreement betwixt the olive-tree and a wanton, that if she plant it, it will either be always unfruitful or altogether wither.
    A lion fears nothing so much as fired torches, and will be tamed by nothing so much as by these; and the wolf fears neither sword nor spear, but a stone—by the throwing of which, a wound being made, worms breed in the wolf.
    A horse fears a camel so that he cannot endure to see so much as his picture.
    An elephant, when he rageth, is quieted by seeing of a cock.
    A snake is afraid of a man that is naked, but pursues a man that is clothed.
    A mad bull is tamed by being tied to a fig-tree.

    Ok, I missed a big chunk of this thread and I’ve been enjoying several post softball game brews, but here goes:

    My nickname is Moondog, usually just shortened to Dog. My best friend is a transplanted Iowa farmboy who endures every pig joke we can throw at him. The two of us would take a two week baseball roadtrip vacation every year back in the mid 80′s early 90′s. So, Pink Floyd’s Animals was, of course, required road trip listening. But, Wish You Were Here is my favorite. I also have a soft spot for Obscured by Clouds. They are rather depressing, but they can make depressing so upbeat. That said, my favorite album in the 70′s was Yessongs with Jethro Tull’s Minstrel in the Gallery a close second.

    OK, ok, I’ll jump on the Floyd bandwagon.

    I usually turn the station when they start playing Pink Floyd because it’s usually either DSOtM (which I don’t want to burn out on) or The Wall (which I burned out on by 1988), and it’s never the albums I could listen to over and over again (Animals, Momentary Lapse).

    But Led Zeppelin, Robin Trower, Jimi Hendrix+Experience, and Deep Purple? Infinite replayability. Cranked to 11.
