Republican Riot


In berating UK opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn for not having shown the “moral courage” to support the unprovoked 1999 attack on Serbia, Conservative MP Dominic Raab misses the irony when he writes that Mr Corbyn’s pacifism is “no way to defend Britain or international law.” (“Pacifist or not, Jeremy Corbyn is not fit to be labelled the heir to Robin Cook,” May 12)

But no one was attacking Britain or any member of the ostensibly defensive NATO alliance when it ganged up on Yugoslavia — breaking not only every international norm and law to do it but a number of postwar agreements, and for good measure rearranging the international order that European and American blood was spilled to establish.

Thanks to our inscrutable and ultimately self-defeating Balkan wars — based on the always prudent doctrine “Well do something!” — a precedent was set (among others that have backfired in Ossetia and Crimea), that the international community can decide a parcel of a sovereign state’s land no longer belongs to it. Mr Corbyn’s “pacifism” in 1999 is precisely the way to defend Britain and international law.

Even Mr Corbyn’s wrongheaded bandwagon desire to see Bashar al-Assad prosecuted for war crimes isn’t wrongheaded enough for Mr Raab, who wants to altogether take down this lone stabilizing force in Syria. Mr Raab also wrote of Mr Corbyn’s willingness “to collaborate with Russia and China” — as if it’s worse than collaborating, as we are, with the people who slaughter us regularly.

Richer still, Mr Raab adds that the late Foreign Secretary Robin Cook “would have shuddered at Mr Corbyn’s recent questioning of UK military support for our NATO ally, plucky Estonia, faced with the real menace of Vladimir Putin on its doorstep.” I shudder to think that Mr Raab wrote this with a straight face, given that scholars have been warning us for years that former Soviet satellites have a psychological need to treat Russia as the enemy and we shouldn’t buy into it. For almost a decade already, some have been mockingly putting forth a hypothetical that “The United States is serious about risking a thermonuclear war for the sake of, say, Estonia’s border with Russia.” And yet here is Mr Raab bringing the joke — rather verbatim –to life.

Moral courage isn’t going after an easier, less threatening target when you’re too cowardly to deal with the real but more intractable enemy. A.k.a. the Clinton formula, which didn’t treat the 1993 World Trade Center bombing as an act of war but did go after an eastern European country for securing its borders in the midst of an insurgency by domestic and foreign terrorists. Incidentally, Slobodan Milosevic — in whose Hague plight Mr Raab delights — was quietly exonerated last year, a decade after fatally succumbing to the toll of our collective lynching. (The tribunal wasn’t able to show even the intent of “genocide and ethnic cleansing” in Kosovo.) As a member of a government that took part in an attack justified through vilification of him, MP Raab should have noticed.

As for Mr. Raab’s contrasting Mr. Corbyn with Robin Cook as the standard-bearer, that is perhaps the saddest part. Naturally, Raab ignores Nicholas Rufford’s Oct. 31, 1999 article in The Sunday Times of London “Cook accused of misleading public on Kosovo massacres.” Cook had cooked the numbers, you see, parroting that paragon of integrity Bill Clinton’s “100,000 dead” slander in order to justify the NATO bombing. Forensic pathologist Emilio Perez Pujol — whose Spanish team expected to perform 2,000 post-mortem examinations — ended up doing 187 and estimated the total number of dead would come to 2,500. (In the end, it was 2,108, on both sides,“including lots of strange deaths that can’t be blamed on anyone in particular,” Pujol said.)

The following month the UN added that some deaths were caused by the bombing itself, and some by gun battles between the Albanian insurgents and the Serbs. “The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia,” the Times article continued, “reported earlier this month that the notorious Trepca mines in Kosovo, where 700 ethnic Albanian bodies were reportedly hidden, contained none…Alice Mahon, the Labour MP who chairs the Balkans committee, said yesterday… ‘When you consider that 1,500 civilians or more were killed during Nato bombing, you have to ask whether the intervention was justified.’” Upon Cook’s death in August 2005, Canadian former ambassador to Yugoslavia, James Bissett, pointed out that Cook “resigned over the invasion of Iraq without UN approval, but took the lead in bombing Serbia without that approval, because he was not independently minded enough to stand up to Madeleine Albright.”

Perhaps most insidious was a factoid that emerged during the Bosnia portion of the Milosevic trial, just a month before the defendant died in his cell. In February 2006, Balkanalysis quoted the pro-intervention IWPR: “The disinterest of Western leaders in the full reality of the wars in Yugoslavia reappeared with one telling vignette. When speaking about Bosnia, [Former UK Guardian journalist Eve-Ann] Prentice spoke of a visit to Pale, where ‘she was surprised to find that a large number of non-Serb refugees were being given shelter there. Before she actually visited Bosnia she had believed what the rest of the media told her about the Serbs….She recounted one occasion where she tried to convince Robin Cook to visit Pale so that he could see for himself that non-Serbs were living freely in the Bosnian-Serb capital. Cook, who was on a fact finding mission, told her that he would not visit Pale because he thought the Serbs were “monsters.”’”

The great conundrum today for the sane — namely those who, like Mr Raab, resent Mr Corbyn’s apologism for Hamas, but unlike Mr Raab see nothing kooky about Mr. Corbyn’s wanting to close down bellicose NATO (whose casus belli disappeared in 1991 which is why it so used Yugoslavia) — is that there is No One.

Ever since we started treating Slavs as a bigger threat than jihadists — feigning fear over a manufactured threat while being too scared to even admit fear over a real threat — a messy world has become messier still. No government and no individual in the world can straighten out the tangled web we’ve woven.

Double Standards and the Benefit of the Doubt

A page one story in the May 3 edition of the Fauquier Times (“Fauquier man seeks truth of attack on USS Liberty 50 years ago”) uncritically accepts as an established fact that the Israelis deliberately attacked the USS Liberty, an American intelligence-gathering vessel, on June 8, 1967, during the Six-Day War.

Responsible journalism would have required at least a pro-forma reference to 50 years of Israeli assertions that the attack was a mistake — that the Liberty was thought to be an Egyptian ship. This letter is not an attempt to rehash the facts of the case. Rather, it’s an exploration into double standards. Who gets the benefit of the doubt and who doesn’t?

I was in Vietnam on June 8, 1967, so I have no firsthand knowledge of the Liberty incident, but I know something of the chaos of war. On May 7, 1999, Bill Clinton bombed the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade, a building that was sitting in one place and not moving around the ocean. This was during a leisurely 78-day elective war against the Serbian people, who posed no threat to the United States, not a frantic struggle for survival against an enemy bent on your annihilation.

Accidental American bombings of Afghan and Yemeni civilians have become almost too numerous to mention, so I’ll note only four. On Oct. 3, 2015, the United States bombed the Kunduz Trauma Center in Afghanistan, run by Doctors Without Borders, killing 42 and wounding more than 30. Four days previously, the doctors had contacted U.S. military officials, reconfirming the precise location of the hospital. On July 6, 2008, the United States bombed a wedding procession in Deh Bala, Afghanistan, killing 47 civilians, 39 of them women and children, and wounding nine. On Nov. 3, 2008, a U.S. airstrike on a wedding party at Wech Baghtu, Afghanistan, killed 37 civilians along with a number of Taliban. And on Dec. 12, 2013, a U.S. drone strike on a wedding convoy in Yemen’s al-Baydah Province killed some 15 civilians (accounts differ) and wounded about 24 others.

Why is the world ready to believe that Americans currently operating with the latest technology make honest mistakes but resolutely insist that Israelis who operated a half-century ago with 1950s-era French technology could not possibly have made a mistake?

Dear Editor:

What a predictable disappointment to read the following sentence in Mike Gonzalez’s “Why the ‘Trump’ State Dept still loves George Soros” (Apr. 7): “Soros’ Open Society Foundation and network of groups does some good in some places — by fighting Vladimir Putin’s bullying of Ukraine, for example.”

There is no contradiction between the things Mr. Gonzalez doesn’t like about Soros, and Soros “standing up to Putin’s bullying of Ukraine.” Both things are bad. Mr. Gonzalez needs a reminder of the Ayn Rand maxim: If you encounter a contradiction, check your original premise, because it’s probably wrong.

Soros isn’t just some leftist figure about whom “conservatives find some things repugnant,” as Mr. Gonzalez also writes. He is a malevolent force of nature who in addition to toppling economies — which everyone does know about — works in the shadows as an unofficial arm of the U.S. and UK “deep state” to topple governments.

The Western narrative on Ukraine (and on Russia in general) — like its cartoonish narrative on the 1990s Balkans wars — is made out of whole cloth, for gullible American consumption. Soros’s people were instrumental in toppling the democratically elected Ukrainian government of Viktor Yanukovych, yet another of our hands-on revolutions, after which we had the nerve to force the issue of whether Russia meddled in our election. Seriously? It’s that latest US meddling that pushed ethnic Russians in Crimea to have a referendum to rejoin Russia, as they didn’t want to be governed by our approved Ukrainian fascists. We labeled Russia’s engagement in this as “aggression.” Never mind the Kosovo blueprint we laid out for it — much less justifiably and self-relevantly than Russia in Ukraine, but more violently –18 years ago. That’s where this all began. And yet we insist on bringing it full circle.

What the public caught onto with the 2016 election was the parody of the blame-Russia canard. But this was not just some DNC foible; it was an over-the-top expression of an already in-place, bipartisan target-Russia mentality that made the Democrats feel they could take it to satirical levels with a straight face.

And so here we are. Allied with Islam against a fellow-infidel nation that tried to be our partner in what everyone in ‘91 agreed was a new era of US-Russian cooperation against a common global threat. We chose the threat, sending the message that we’ll take barbarians over Slavs. Nice. The last time there was near unanimity on an illegal bombing of a sovereign nation (in this case Syria), we inexplicably leveled Yugoslavia and unleashed jihad. Keep digging, America.

I come from a family of refusenik escapees from Russia, and was raised a Russophobe. But this is ridiculous. Shame on America for out-propagandizing and out-Sovietizing the USSR’s successor state, which has been on the right side of international legality for the past 20 years as we’ve dismantled the very order we helped build after WWII, while “democratizing” the world right back to the 7th century.

Dear Editor:

Tammy Bruce disappoints (“Hillary Clinton’s Revenge Tour, and Nikki Haley’s Ascent,” Apr. 12). What Ms. Bruce hails in Haley is the very thing that made Hillary Clinton so dangerous, voted Most Likely to Lead us to Nuclear War. Ms. Bruce refers to Haley’s “virtuoso handling of an international crisis, replete with chemical weapons, mass murder, terrorist groups, Russia and Iran…She did not bend, she controlled the environment, and led.”

The reason Russia’s UN rep had such a disgusted look on his face during Haley’s “leadership” display is he knew the charade that was playing out, the “crisis” manufactured (the rebels had every reason to stage a chemical attack while Assad had every reason not to).

Enter the plethora of columns like Ms. Bruce’s, unwittingly reinforcing America’s road to perdition. Haley’s laudable UN-scolding aside, she represents continuity not only of Obama’s Russia-hawk pentagram of harpies — Power-Rice-Jarrett-Nuland-Clinton (“If women ran the world there’d be no war”?) — but also of stuck-in-cold-war Obama supporter Condoleezza Rice, who likewise did the chest-thumping thing where it wasn’t deserved or constructive (toward Russia), while glad-handing our Islamic “friends.” The former hasn’t killed an American in decades, while the latter…well, you do the math. Rice herself was a continuity of Clinton-era Madeleine Albright, who led the march toward our Target-Russia mentality when she targeted the previous designated villain — those surrogate Russians known as Serbs — in a war that’s proving to have been a dry-run against Russia. Indeed, the last time we saw this kind of near unanimity on foreign policy, we leveled Yugoslavia and unleashed jihad.

I’m sorry, but this “toughness” is Foreign Policy for Dummies, and these days that includes my previously exalted fellow conservatives. In fact, the toughness masks a pusillanimity: reluctance to fight the more intractable and politically sensitive but more real, hostile and deadly threat — which professes itself such hourly.

Like many conservatives, Bruce and Haley are inclined to believe that in foreign affairs we’re the “good guys.” The bullet-points that Haley (and everyone else) is hitting Russia with are not eliciting current US actions and responses; they are responses to U.S. actions, intrigues, broken promises, and trampling of the postwar order we ourselves helped build. The sleeping bear is finally, belatedly behaving the way we poked and poked at it to behave. This was all scripted a long time ago. Just because Americans weren’t paying attention to U.S.-Russia relations until cued to do so by our Political-Intel-Media Axis — as it conveniently started the clock for us at Crimea 2014 — doesn’t mean some of us didn’t notice (and futilely warn) that the stage was being set all along.

Sending the message that we prefer barbarians to Russians — and the enmity of the former to the friendship of the latter — tells Russia there’s no place for it in the civilized world, so forage elsewhere. Enter the ever-closer relationship with Iran. My father scoffs that he once scoffed at the prophecy pamphlet the missionaries handed him when he came to this country in 1974: the Soviet Union would fall; airplanes would fly into buildings; and Russia would help Iran build a nuclear bomb.

What a sick twist that it’ll be Trump — clearly goaded into “showing strength” (while showing Muslims he cares) — who will prove prophecy inescapable. After all, we voted against the candidate enthusiastically leading us toward it while Trump had the instincts to avoid it.

Ms. Bruce concludes with, “Everyone at the U.N. now knows who is in charge. And it’s not the boys from Syria, Russia or Iran.”

Actually, it will be. Because when you’re playing war games and justifying them with shallow rhetoric packaged for American consumption, you’re going to get schooled by more ancient nations. Nations which, incidentally, have lived with Muslims in their midst a lot longer and smarter than we have.

As an escapee from Russia, I was raised a Russophobe, but this is ridiculous. I’m sorry for the lesson coming to America, but we asked for it.

Those who live in fear of information, such as what conservative news sites like Breitbart might reveal to them about themselves or the world they pretend not to live in, go to pains to uncover an “anti-Semitic” undercurrent on the site. Having exhausted their efforts to make an anti-Semite out of former editor and current White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, they then turned to the comments section to see what anti-Semitism they could find.

As everyone knows, the comments section of any site is a free-for-all, but because Breitbart’s realism does also attract a pro-white element, that’s all the proof that Breitbart’s detractors think they need. Never mind that white-supremacist minority reading the site has NOTHING on the anti-Semitism of the “non-anti-Semitic” MAJORITY who read “mainstream” sites like Huffington Post (FrontPageMag, CAMERA, and HuffWatch have all been monitoring that Jew-hating cesspool). But here I present to you a hefty excerpt of the comments under a single Yahoo! News story last week about Jews protesting last Sunday’s AIPAC conference (now apparently available only on a Japanese URL):

Garret H
Far-right Israeli Zionists are the real terrorists.

Go
It was reported that Israel’s two largest banks — Bank of Leumi and Hapolim Bank — assisted US citizens (you take a guess whether it was Gentiles or Jewish) in dodging over $400 million of personal income tax. My guess was neither bank reported earned income and capital gains in exchange for large deposits. Somewhere the AIPAC biggies are gathering for their next pow wow. No way they will allow the books of those Jewish banks to be opened up exposing what Americans took advantage. The smoking gun just might lead right back to some of them. That is sickening! And it’s done from our “greatest ally” in the Middle East. Well if that is an ally doing stuff like that then no thank you. Cut off Israel from any aid right now!

Jason
If Jews would just top breaking Yahweh’s commandments everything would be fine. They cant help themselves.

Sean
If these Jews love Israel so much then they need to leave America and move to Israel! America needs to STOP giving Israel $4 BILLION of our hard earned tax dollars every year!

Shekel Trader
98% of the Jews make the rest look bad. I guess the remaining 2% are at least making themselves known. Gotta give them credit.

Man from Nantucket
AIPAC is the most corrupting factor in our government today. Know your enemy.

PracticalWarlord
AIPAC and Saudi agents in our Congress are the greatest danger to American people’s safety.

Joseph
a.i.p.a.c. is the cancer in the United States government infecting every traitorous politician.

ku
Omg, too much migrants Jews will take over USA. They are United in singing in Hebrew……People keep throwing U.S. dollars at them!

Paul
Israel is a powerful country that does not care what little Americans even little Jewish Americans think. They control the U.S. Congress, local governments, etc. They just laugh and count the money.

Chris
The Jew cries out in pain as he extorts your Congress.

Shekel Trader
Now that we know who was making all the bomb threats to Jewish centers around the country and the globe, I wonder how many AIPAC supporters and Israel First Jews turned out to overturn head stones in Jewish cemeteries around the country? Does the Jew know no shame?

Rich
The only true solution is the final solution.

oded
The Jewish people are GREAT people. The Jews and Judaism should be respected and protected like any other faith all around the world. THE PROBLEM is EVIL ZIONISM and ZIONISTS. It is the most dangerous, corrupt, filthy, immoral, GREEDY, manipulating ideology ever existed. The ZIONISTS are 100% responsible for the creation of all TERROR groups in the Middle EAST. The ZIONISTS are 100% behind 9/11 attacks on USA. Please watch, “The Experts Speak Out on 9/11” Documentary.

John
Did you ever hear of a crooked business deal that didn’t contain at least one Jew.
ADOLPH

YouDoNotChooseGender
ANY group that promotes terror and apartheid states as they ignore U.N Resolutions including AIPAC should be labeled a terrorist organization, everyone of the people at that sing-a-long needs to be arrested and charged with war crimes and face a collective punishment. Only jews support filth and terror, NOT Americans.. Americans do nothing because the jew has convinced America that ‘Jesus’ is their Messiah, Jesus is also a jew, they are jews, and hence related to jesus , and therefore by default related to your god.. so the jew is your ‘GOD in-law’.. tell me I am wrong you simpleton followers..and the jew counts on it!! there is a reason the jew has been hunted all through history.. ‘109 times’.. google it

Dr Zaius
Let them eat camel dung for all real Americans care about that bizzare cult. They send their sissy boys to join the Israeli Army rather than serve alongside Americans in our Army. They hate us, which is fine, but we owe the Nothing.

Pedorific Talmud
Jews are evil.

Toby
Israel Mossad did 9/11…count on it.

F Israel
The fake Jews of Isntreal. The question no one ever asks is “why is the Jew so hated, world over, for thousands of years.” It’s not just a big fluke or huge misunderstanding.

guiseppe
They have no afterlife!

kenaj
Just hurry up Iran

MisterDna
Kick all the Jews out

Illuminated One
Dispersing Jewish protesters is easy, just roll a few pennies down the street.

Louis
There’s a lot of decent Jews left. The rest should make Aliyah. The sooner the better.

Sestun
The Jew(ish) state by its name is racist. America is a free state.

Chuck
Greenblatt and Kushner in the White House? I guess we know what will happen next, the Palestinians have no chance with these guys. They will be forced into a corner they can’t get out of without a fight.

Pro-American Republican Whip
I wonder what President Trump will do to AIPAC and Israel after he finds out Israel did the 911 attacks on AMERICA.

F Israel
Terrorwitz!

Ray
The people who rule America and suq it dry like parasites

Jews protesting against Israel… Are flying pigs next?

Mik
What are they protesting? WE the Turkeys ALREADY pay for Israeli Abortions…thank God, one less… They didn’t upkeep that cemetery in NY and blamed vandals on the tombs turning over AND a 19 year old Jewish Man was caught being behind all the threats against Temples!

Bodh
Take a guess where the unaccounted-for billions that Madoff made-off with ended-up?

Kay
Zionism is a cancer!

jjj
Deport them all. They are as bad as the muslims. never trust either cult.

There’s probably a reason the restaurant reviewed here is the only Nigerian restaurant in Las Vegas. The review and a translation below. But first, let’s start with the fact that this was the dish that was featured in the photo in the print edition:

Las Vegas Valley’s only Nigerian eatery offers distinctive food and decor

By BRIAN SANDFORD
VIEW ASSISTANT EDITOR

Nigerian food might well be an acquired taste. If so, one probably needs to visit Chiamaka Food Nigerian Cuisine more than once to acquire it.

[ ‘Nigerian food be nasty. You’d have to force-feed it to yourself for years to stop noticing its nastiness.’ The dinner-table scene from “Mommy Dearest” comes to mind.]

The restaurant, fairly well-hidden in a nondescript shopping center just southeast of UNLV, has its charms. [ ‘The restaurant is a storefront in a ghetto strip mall.’ As for the charms:] No two tables or sets of chairs in the dining area were alike, giving the place an antiques-store vibe. [ ‘They got the furniture out of a dumpster, like the hippy-run places do.’] A sectional couch faced a flat-screen TV that played overly loud music videos until the restaurant’s operators accommodated a request to turn it down. [ ‘In case the grossness of the food and the whole scene wasn’t enough, it’s loud too.’]

A warm greeting from a restaurant employee was followed by a half-hour wait until the food arrived. [ ‘We had to wait half an hour to get our stomach-turning dishes.’] The lunch special, jollof rice with chicken and plantains, was a good value at $9.99; the fish pepper soup, which was served in a bowl about 6 inches in diameter and cost $12.99, was not….The bitter soup consisted primarily of thin broth and chunks of whitefish, the latter of which included skin and bones. That made it difficult to consume; a couple of the bones were more than an inch long, while others were too small to be picked out easily. [NO TRANSLATION NECESSARY.]

Chiamaka was empty at 11:30 a.m. but nearly full an hour later. The swelling crowd might explain why it took a long time for the bill to be processed. [ ‘Then we had to wait a long time to pay for our nasty lunch.’]

I’d say a restaurant may be the biggest Nigerian scam yet.

I’ll tell Nigerians what I tell Texas transplants who insist on still buying Blue Bell ice cream because it’s from back home: Just because you’re from a certain place doesn’t mean you have to keep eating the shitty food. Nigerians, you’re in America now — there’s edible food here, with civilized menu options. Just look at me: My first day in America saw me liberated from the Russian frozen-fat delicacy known as holodetz, and upgraded to Frankenberry.

I wasn’t going to post anything this March 24th, as it all goes into a black hole anyway, but then that Impact Award was announced for our next First Female President. And so I’ve drafted the following for the “Hillarisms” facebook page, where it will appear in a few hours and where I’m lately more active than on this site.

**********

News that Chelsea Clinton is to receive an Impact Award from Variety and the Lifetime network for her work fighting childhood obesity is being met with wide scoffing. After all, we already have a cure for childhood obesity. It’s called puberty.

One can, however, understand this issue — which Chelsea pursued through an affiliate of The Clinton Foundation — being dear to a Clinton heart. After all, childhood obesity is the very scourge over which her father bonded with a 21-year-old intern as they lamented their difficult and insecure childhoods to each other, according to the 1998 Lewinsky exposés in NY Post and NY Times.

In contrast, as a young boy of 12, Novak Djokovic successfully fought off obesity by training in tennis while dodging the impact of our NATO bombs that were dropping to hand over Christian land to Albanian-Muslim terrorists backed simultaneously by Turkey and Saudi Arabia. It was today, March 24th, in 1999 that Chelsea’s dad announced this workout for Novak and other Yugoslavian children who also never got the chance to get fat, as their lifetimes were impacted into oblivion while they slept. For variety, in the case of three-year-old Milica Rakic, she was on the potty when her lifetime was cut short.

Indeed, the Impact Award — set for an April 21st Power of Women luncheon — was announced as we enter the 18th anniversary of the 78 days that the impact of the Clintern relationship was felt most acutely by Yugoslavia — the designated decoy — which itself started getting skinnier and skinnier until it disappeared in 2003. (Thanks in large part to the Power of the Woman giving the man the order to give the order to impact.) Since then, we have fattened NATO with spoils such as Croatia, Melania’s Slovenia, and — currently being fought over in Congress—Montenegro…with Kosovo and maybe even emaciated Serbia to join eventually. All to encircle Russia and cut her down to size (ultimately even physically), as is the goal of the repurposed NATO alliance.

Instead, however, we’ll all feel the squeeze when Russia bites back, and in the end Chelsea’s Alliance for a Healthier Tomorrow will have been intimately connected with a Dalliance for an Unhealthier Day After Tomorrow.

Why Trump towers: America inaugurates its first male president since 1985

Amid a tumultuous year of, among other things, migrants-gone-wild and Britain having the sanity to leave the EU, two names belonging to overpaid human waste have reared their heads.

Balkans-watchers will recall the Miocene names Alastair Campbell and Paddy Ashdown. The former was British former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s communications director during the West’s 1999 assault on Yugoslavia, and spent 2013 promoting to Albanians his memoirs boasting of the disinformation campaign he helped run on their behalf. (While he was at it, he hustled a lucrative consulting deal from that poorest of countries for his old boss.)

Paddy Ashdown, meanwhile, is the Israel-hating, Serb-hating British former Liberal MP who was the UN’s High Rep for Bosnia and who helped force a fabricated report on the Srebrenica “genocide,” not to mention perjured himself as a prosecution witness at the Milosevic trial. He’s been criticized by former colleagues for his unequivocal acceptance of Islamic propaganda, and bears responsibility for the earliest swamping of Europe with Muslims, via Kosovo and Bosnia. He’s also been known to make absurd WWII analogies, and this week he graces us with another one:

[Remainer] Paddy Ashdown ludicrously claims Brexit is ’similar’ to rise of Hitler (UK Express, Jan. 2, 2017)

The peer and former Liberal Dem leader branded Brexiteers as “dispossessed and voiceless” as he compared the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany in the 1930s to the referendum result.

He made the outrageous claims during an interview on the BBC’s Pienaar’s Politics show.

Speaking alongside Vote Leave and key Brexit campaigner Iain Duncan Smith, Lord Ashdown said: “I’m deep into the 1930s and boy does this age remind me of the 1930s.

“All the things are there, the revolt against the establishment, the retreat from multilateralism to unilateralism.

“The beginning of protectionism, with those who shout loudest getting heard and the small voice of reason doesn’t.”

Despite 17.4m voters opting for Britain to leave the crumbling European Union, the 75-year-old suggested the country was now retreating away from democracy.

“The reason why the 1930s produced such an apocalyptic end was because the progressive centre was fractured, broken and voiceless,” he continued.

“What we heard in the Brexit debate, Trump too for that matter, was that scream of rage from the dispossessed and voiceless.”

Lord Ashdown’s remarks were quickly shot down by Mr Duncan Smith who said the Remain backer was offering a “complete misreading as to what has happened”.

“People who felt left behind have actually said ‘we’re tried of the kind of system that is being imposed on us and we want to change it’,” he said.

“I think this is the real voice of democracy.” […]

And this was Alastair Campbell just before Christmas:

Sky News viewers slam Alastair Campbell after he defends free movement and attacks Farage (UK Express, Dec. 23, 2016)

ALASTAIR CAMPBELL has taken a swipe at Nigel Farage after he said Angela Merkel was to blame for the Berlin terror attack.

Tony Blair’s former spin chief said the Brexiteer’s comments were setting a dangerous precedent across the Continent.

In the wake of the Berlin terror attack, which killed 12 and injured many more, Mr Farage said the German Chancellor had made the “worst policy decision” in the last 70 when she openly welcomed almost a million asylum seekers into Germany in 2015.

Speaking on LBC, Mr Farage warned over a lack of vetting and said: “We should not let our compassion imperil our safety and indeed our civilisation.”

“Mrs Merkel has directly caused a whole number of social and terrorist problems in Germany and it’s about time we confronted the truth.”

Mr Campbell told Sky News on Friday: “I think you’ve got to be really careful not to say it’s his fault or her fault.

“I thought Nigel Farage the other day suggesting Angela Merkel was responsible for this killing we’ve been talking about because of her tolerant – if you like – attitude to immigration and the refugee crisis [–] I think we’ve got to be very careful….”

He added: “My worry at the moment is the sort of leadership we are seeing in the world – particularly following the election of Donald Trump – is not the leadership that is going to solve this problem but probably exacerbate it.”

Following the shooting of Anis Amri, the suspected Berlin terrorist, in Milan, Mr Campbell tweeted to say it was a victory for “co-operation between EU security forces”.

However in response several users argued the more concerning aspect was how Amri was able to move between Germany, France and Italy.

“He was found by accident according to Italian police,” one said. “Nice to see you still spinning all the same.”

Don Murray said: What cooperation Alastair? The Germans were convinced he was still in Berlin? Porous borders, easy for terrorists to cross.”

A third said: “Someone wanted and dangerous was able to cross borders with no trouble at all, that’s the actual reality.”

Mr Campbell did admit during the Sky News discussion that immigration was central to the Brexit vote.

“…London has very much benefited from immigration. Other parts of the country – the north and the midlands – MPs say, ‘look, we’re getting it all the time, immigration is what made us vote for Brexit…’ You have to accept peoples’ concerns without necessarily reaching the wrong policy conclusions. That is afraid what I think we’ve done as a country with Brexit.”

In case there was any question as to the sanity of those who have been running our world, these two old dolts leave no room for further question.

This is the gay Hunter College professor who harassed and tried to intimidate Ivanka Trump and her babies at the airport two weeks ago. (Apparently breaking his own rule of staying away from pretty girls.) Look at this nebbish! Good thing he’s gay.

In related news, a bunch of artists whose paintings Ivanka has are actually doing the kindergarten thing and telling her to take their work off her walls. While Ivanka is otherwise perfect (in my view), her taste in art could use work, and I would therefore agree that she should take down these children’s “work,” which looks like splatter and finger paint. Check it out:

The group of New York artists is called Halt Action Group, and their website reads: “Dear Ivanka, we need to talk about your dad. Racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, and homophobia are not acceptable anywhere — least of all in the White House….Talk of a Muslim registry has no place in the White House.”

Now, maybe one day someone will explain to me how a registry for Jew-killers and gay-killers amounts to anti-Semitism and homophobia, but in the meantime, look at the intellectual level of the “Dear Ivanka” cards that the group is having people fill out in front of her apartment:

Join the club. Muslims are killing everyone. (I’d say, “Not fun when the shoe’s on the other foot, huh,” but then I’d be equating trying to prevent Muslims from killing, to Muslims killing.)

I must emphasize how mystified I am not just over the “anti-Semitism” charge against Trump, but the homophobia charge. What evidence is there that he has anything against gays? But then I’m reminded that it’s not enough to not have anything against gays. Nor even to accept them. You have to actually love and celebrate them. They require your devotion. And when it comes to the gay agenda, whatever its full range may be, they require your submission.

This of course starts to sound a lot like those folks who want gays dead. The ones whom the gays defend so passionately. Submission-demanding Islam. This would make no sense at all, unless the sacred cow that’s being protected is a common political M.O. (Let’s dub the Gay/Islam phenomenon ‘Gayslam.’) Do I really need to write an obvious article that draws out just how similar their legal, political, cultural, medial, semantic, and psychological methods have been?
