Liberals in Wonderland

As exemplified by Margaret Carlson on “Morning Joe”:

Carlson said of assimilating immigrants, “we do know how to do it. Europe doesn’t know how to do it. France especially doesn’t know how to do it. England not very good at it. And so, we have less of a problem. You know, those people who have snuck in, that, I don’t know if they’ve snuck in, but maybe they become Americanized, maybe the anger goes away. Maybe what they snuck in to do they’re not going to do, because we do have an acceptance of these people, as Congressman [Keith] Ellison (D-MN) said. They’re more patriotic because they’re here and they work harder.”

Because that’s why jihadists came here – to assimilate, get jobs, work harder.

Remember when we were told that all the members of ISIS needed were jobs?  If we’d provide that, well, they’d just settle down and quit trying to impose a 7th Century caliphate on the world.  And then there’s Mohammed Atta, who basically came here, hung around, tasted the “good life”, learned to fly and shopped at Walmart and ate at Pizza Hut the day before he flew a hijacked plane into one of the twin towers.  He “assimilated” quite well didn’t he, Margaret?

The fact that the left will not admit to or recognize the fact that this is a war of ideologies and the radical Islamist ideology isn’t about “assimilation”, any more than was the Nazi ideology, is dangerous.  They also apparently  can’t admit that there is evil in the world and in this case, it is epitomized in ISIS, and one must confront evil head on.  If they did any of that they’d have to admit their “tolerance” and “multicultural” arguments are nonsense. Admitting all of that would also demand they take action.

None of that is going to happen with this crowd.  Just look at the man in the White House.  He’s all about pretending.  He’s pretended for quite some time that ISIS isn’t really a threat.  His failure to admit, recognize and confront the evil that is radical Islam has helped lead us to this point.  And he still won’t take action.  But he’s not going to.  In a recent speech, he as much as said that:

But what we do not do, what I do not do is to take actions either because it is going to work politically or it is going to somehow, in the abstract, make America look tough, or make me look tough. And maybe part of the reason is because every few months I go to Walter Reed, and I see a 25-year-old kid who’s paralyzed or has lost his limbs, and some of those are people I’ve ordered into battle. And so I can’t afford to play some of the political games that others may.

Whether or not he goes to Walter Reed, this is just an excuse leveraged off of the military.  My first thought was if he’s not able to make the hard decisions that will keep the American people safe, he needs to resign from the job. The second thing I thought was, just as I did, these young men and women were willing to pay the price necessary to keep this country safe, and he’s just made that effort worthless.  It has been all OJT for him anyway, and he has failed miserably.  As to playing “political games”, that’s all the man does. This play on wounded military is just that.

We’ll do what’s required to keep the American people safe. And I think it’s entirely appropriate in a democracy to have a serious debate about these issues. If folks want to pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, present a specific plan. If they think that somehow their advisors are better than the Chairman of my Joint Chiefs of Staff and the folks who are actually on the ground, I want to meet them. And we can have that debate. But what I’m not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of American leadership or America winning, or whatever other slogans they come up with that has no relationship to what is actually going to work to protect the American people, and to protect people in the region who are getting killed, and to protect our allies and people like France. I’m too busy for that.

Of course the CJCS have presented numerous proposals that he wouldn’t even entertain, much less approve and none of which included the dreaded “boots on the ground”.  He’s simply not going to do anything serious.  The above is politics.  He no more wants to meet and debate than he wants to strike ISIS.  He’s “too busy” being arrogant and inept and leaving a huge mess for whomever it is that has to fill the vacancy we’ve actually had for 7, going on 8, years. As for doing “what’s required to keep the American people safe”, apparently importing possible jihadis from a hot bed of them how this is done.

This is the legacy of liberalism

Beautiful, ain’t it?

  • What he’s doing is blaming it on his advisors, like the Joint Chiefs.

    Bad advice = bad outcome but don’t blame me….They ADVISED ME…..

    • The fact that the US President is so prissy is a recruiting plus for ISIL

      • Admit it, he’d be fun to taunt without his secret service guard wouldn’t he?

        “Go and boil your bottom! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberries!”

  • His military / national security advisors are all ‘yes men’ – it’s a job requirement with this administration. He knows only what his ‘yes men’ tell him, meaning he has no idea what the real world is doing. Even the MSM and some Democrats are coming recognize what we’ve known since 2007 – he’s an empty suit who looks upon America – and especially the American military – with disdain. Why else would trade a known deserter for five Taliban generals, then parade the deserter around the Rose Garden like some war hero? Despicable.

  • He’s not the one making the decisions. The press should start asking if Valerie Jarrett has read the defense briefings and decided what to do.

    He’s merely “voting present” until the time runs out. His only job was to get ObamaCare passed.

  • The singular comfort I take in all of this is I recognized him for what he was BEFORE he entered the office and demonstrated it.

    While it’s not much help right now, it’s good to know the BS scanner is properly calibrated.

    I have a feeling it’s going to come in handy in 2016 (even if it doesn’t help in the end…)

  • ISIL is the actual manifestation of a concept I referred to a the “Jihad-athon”
    Crazy young’ins get a chance to see how they would fare in the “world of Mad Max” against the guns, bombs and vehicles of the “civilized world”.

    We all know how this ends, but given a world of unending problems like Climate Change, overpopulation, gender ambiguity and racial hatred, they go out on their own terms. It’s just another form of “assisted suicide”.

    Liberal college professors dream about this stuff .. and will write about it for decades to come.

  • Let’s face facts. This is a RELIGIOUS war. Religion may also be an ideology, but it is still a religious war, with all that implies. The rock worshippers took a break for a few centuries, but they are on the march again.

    • Ah, but it’s not ‘sectarian’ if you have a problem with the tenants of Islam, it’s ‘Racist’.

      Must be awesome to have been educated at what used to be the best institutions of higher learning in America where they no longer understand the former word, and use the later all the time because they just want you to STFU.

    • This should explain how this is a religious war …

      Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, “Don’t do it!” He said, “Nobody loves me.” I said, “God loves you. Do you believe in God?”

      He said, “Yes.” I said, “Are you a Christian or a Jew?” He said, “A Christian.” I said, “Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?” He said, “Protestant.” I said, “Me, too! What franchise?” He said, “Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?” He said, “Northern Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?”

      Article continues
      He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist.” I said, “Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?” He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region.” I said, “Me, too!”

      Northern Conservative†Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?” He said, “Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912.” I said, “Die, heretic!” And I pushed him over.

      • Progressives think BOTH sides have to see it as a religious war in order for it to be one.

        The Jihadi’s don’t care how WE see it, they’re not playing by the rules set up by anybody’s version of a supreme being but their own.
        And THEY see it as a religious war.
        And what the intelligentsia of the WEST doesn’t understand is the only ‘right’ way to treat the followers of Jihad to make them stop is to embrace their religion.
        they don’t want to be understood, they want us to submit.

        Personally I think what they’re worried about is we’ll corrupt their women and westernize them, and then they’ll have to do what their wives tell them and like it, like the rest of us.

        • Personally I think what they’re worried about is we’ll corrupt their women and westernize them, and then they’ll have to do what their wives tell them and like it, like the rest of us.

          That’s not a Western problem but mostly an American problem from its economic and technical achievement in the 20th century. I could give my armchair pop psychology reason for it. Anyway, its my observation men in the US at an abnormal rate have something from an over abundance of Matron Worship to borderline Madonna complexes.

          • Actually I figure the divorce rate kinda speaks to the idea that American men really do what their wives tell them all the time. 🙂

            But from the perspective of a society where women are just slightly more respected than, say, house cats – having to listen to them at all probably looks like a real problem.

  • Citing sources who have “worked in the Obama administration,” Attkisson reported officials believe President Barack Obama has “closed his mind” to intelligence on certain radical Islamic terrorist groups. She also claimed Obama is “facing formidable opposition on this particular point.”

    “You’re telling me, that you’ve talked to people in his inner circle, or the administration, that are telling you that even though there are groups that might be on our terror list…Obama, in his mind, doesn’t consider them to be terrorists because what — they have a gripe?” host Steve Malzberg pressed.

    “I don’t know the reasoning for it,” Attkisson replied. “I’ve only been told by those who have allegedly attempted to present him or been in the circle that has attempted to present him with certain intelligence that they said he doesn’t want it…or he won’t read it in some instances.”

  • And then there’s Mohammed Atta, who basically came here, hung around, tasted the “good life”, learned to fly and shopped at Walmart and ate at Pizza Hut the day before he flew a hijacked plane into one of the twin towers. He “assimilated” quite well didn’t he, Margaret?

    >>> To be fair, Pizza Hut is pretty nasty.

  • The day will come that one if these jihadists cells will pull off a Paris sized/style attack here (maybe even nuclear). Something so big and transgressive that liberals who still bleat about tolerance and perspective, will be dragged into the streets and beaten. I look forward to the response global rrspinse to terrorism then. Hopefully, the jihadists will incite the Russian bears, or the Chinese, first, and we will all get to enjoy watching them reign holy hell down on the middle east. But, if it falls to us, we’ll do it, eventually. American’s will just need to see some more civilians corpses before they get motivated to act.

    • I’m convinced we’re going to do things that 50 years from now a couple generations away will feel about it the way people feel about interning the Japanese-Americans.

    • I actually don’t know about that Mal. Suppose they pulled off something grisly in DC or any other liberal haven. You think a lot of conservatives are gonna be anguished and demand we spend our blood and treasure to avenge DC? Chicago? San Francisco?

      • Yeah, we will.
        Fools that we are.
        And when it’s over they’ll rush to see how they can screw us over for helping them.

  • You poor scared babies. There aren’t a bunch if ‘jihadists’ coming. They are a tiny minority in the Muslim world, and you’re being one of their useful idiots if out of paranoid fear you give into bigotry and hate. You’re like people in the Cold War looking for communists under their beds. Fear, loathing, what a pathetic way to go through life, I really pity you. Alas, you represent what I write about in my blog: American Cowards: https://scotterb.wordpress.com/2015/11/19/american-cowards/

    Luckily, the youth understand better and will make an America much different than the one you want to leave behind.

    • Lol you fail at trolling, and at life.

    • Saaaayyyy, Erp…

      How’s all that “phony scandal” BS looking now that we know that Hellary openly compromised national security?

      Since you’re here showing your ass…and pimping your blog…tells us the one about how easily ISIS can be defeated. That one NEVER gets old…!!!

    • If you had any math skills at all you would know that even a tiny minority of 1.6 billion muslims is a rather substantial number. And if you had any knowledge of history you would know that Communists were indeed infiltrating the West. And if you had any knowledge……

      Ah, to heck with it.

      • Yep, like I said yesterday, it’s like reading the Constitution to a mob of Meerkats.

    • You went full retard, man. Never go full retard.

    • You poor scared babies. That’s right, you ex-military basket cases are babies, and there’s not the least bit of conflict between that insult and you guys going through boot camp, or even military service in a war zone. Which I’m sure I could have handled easily, except that I’m way, way too smart to have anything to do with military service. Too smart for sure, and don’t even start with how I’m a snivelling coward who pees his own pants when I see violence in person. Don’t start. I’m just sensitive, so naturally I’m a pacifist. Well, most of the time. When Obama (PBUH) needs to use military force, naturally I’m all for it.

      There aren’t a bunch if ‘jihadists’ coming. And shut up about how it only takes one to plant a nuclear weapon, or contaminate a city’s water supply so thousands die. Those are just silly adventure novel scenarios. Just shut up. And for Obama’s sake, don’t bring up how it only took 18 of them to kill 3000 using planes crashing into buildings.

      They are a tiny minority in the Muslim world, and you’re being one of their useful idiots if out of paranoid fear you give into bigotry and hate. Yes, from up here in my bucolic setting in the woods of Maine, I have complete confidence that this tiny minority will never harm any of you people who live in real cities. So don’t you start talking about how only one percent of a 100,000 refugees would still mean 1000 terrorists. I was told there would be no math.

      You’re like people in the Cold War looking for communists under their beds. Fear, loathing, what a pathetic way to go through life, I really pity you. You should live the way I live, up here sharing the environment with majestic moose, teaching eager young minds all about how the communists were not really so bad, and we were paranoid fools to fear them so much. Why my Russian ex-wife agrees with completely. At least that’s the way I interpret it when she said something about how the men there are gallant and honorable, unlike some she could name in America.

      Yes, I pity you. I do! Stop laughing! I have such a magical life, and you only have rewarding careers with tangible accomplishments and lifetime, rewarding marriages. While I have no worries, and get to teach young minds the wonder and glory of moderate leftism, and look upon their fresh, innocent faces. Especially the nubile co-eds, their faces smiling and pretty, and their spirit pregnant with the possibilities before them. Which might include a dalliance someday with a brilliant professor they admire and respect. You don’t know, it might.

      Alas, you represent what I write about in my blog: American Cowards. Yep, you guys who actually understand how to fight and use guns and stuff are cowards, while a mostly-pacifist man hiding from reality living a magical life is the one who is really brave. Stop laughing, I said.

      Luckily, the youth understand better and will make an America much different than the one you want to leave behind. So pay no attention to how Republicans dominate the states more than any of us alive have ever seen. That’s not important. What’s important is that the youth have tasted the wonder and glory of being led by a christlike figure who will go down in history as one of the great presidents. Damn it, stop laughing! He will too! No, no, no! Don’t bring up how Obamacare is falling apart even faster than you cowardly righties said it would, or every single foreign policy decision he has made has led to disaster! Stop it, stop it, stop it! Arab Spring! Good and necessary! You’re being anachronistic! Anti-Tea-Party! Nyah, nyah, nyah, I can’t hear any more!

      No, instead you need to listen to me talk about the pussification of America! And don’t start with how I just use that word to get some kind of titillation in my life. Because I don’t, and my extensive coverage of the band Pussy Riot a few years back wasn’t for that reason either. Just like I don’t either do that trip to Italy every year to be around a bunch of nubile young co-eds. No, it’s because I just love seeing the same crumbled monuments and old churches for the seventh time. I do! You can’t prove otherwise! Not even with those hotel room charges for Student Bodies 9: The Pussification of Ivanado U.

      Just like you can’t prove that Obama is a failure, no matter how much evidence propaganda you bring to bear. He’s one of the greats, and if I have not come over to talk about him recently, it’s not because everything he touches turns to moose shit. No, he has a grand plan, and it’s all going to work out, and I’ll be vindicated in how I’ve praised his majesty our lightworker for eight years.

      Yes, no matter how everything goes, I’ll hum to myself as I go back through my archives to find something that after being stretched into a completely new meaning proves that I predicted it all along. I’m not sure yet how I’ll do that if we have nuclear terrorism, but I have godlike powers of political science based on my degree from a place with “advanced” in its name, so I’m confident that I’m up to it.

    • Hey Professor Twerp – better let the cowards at the State Department know you have this under control and they have nothing to fear from the tiny minority of the Muslim world.

      ” The terse warning, posted on the State Department website Monday, said American travelers should use “particular caution” in the coming weeks and through Feb. 24.
      “Current information suggests that (ISIS), Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions,” the State Department wrote.”

      Like DocD said – never go full retard.

  • “tiny minority in the Muslim world”

    “Newsflash – tiny minority of passengers on 4 aircraft kill 3000 people in New York, Washington DC and a field new Shanksville Pennsylvania.
    Story at 11:00.”

    The girlfriend move on to greener pastures? Need some attention?
    You’re an idiot Scott, not worth the effort.
