Opinion by AAABTonto:
Nearly everything that we see and hear in the media has or is becoming politicized and twisted to provide the viewer with a preordained conclusion. It takes some due diligence to separate the peppercorns from the rabbit pellets if you want to gain an authentic perspective of our current circumstance locally, nationally or internationally. It takes persistence, knowledge and awareness.
We have allowed each new generation of Americans to grow up with less of an education than the previous generation. We have a population that is nearly historically illiterate. Thus, they have nothing to compare themselves to; for them, history began when they were born. They are ‘lost in time’.
History is my favorite scholastic subject, because it contains all of the other subjects. It is fascinating beyond description and to disregard it, is a fool’s errand. Now that the Progressive Movement has provided us an entire nation of gullible minions, the powerful can practice their duplicity with impunity. The masses can be hypnotized by the bright shiny object and whipped into a frenzy over the tiniest of situations. The MSM can aim their spray-foam propaganda at will and flagrantly ignore the most obvious facts in evidence simply by calling someone, who thinks differently than they do, a racist, homophobe, tea-bagger or any of a number of other scurrilous names. Yet, when a conservative CORRECTLY labels a Marxist a Marxist, the conservative is once again berated, stepped on and dragged through the mud.
What is duplicity, duplicitous behavior?
noun \du̇-ˈpli-sə-tē also dyu̇-\
: dishonest behavior that is meant to trick someone
1 : contradictory doubleness of thought, speech, or action; especially : the belying of one’s true intentions by deceptive words or action
2 : the quality or state of being double or twofold
3 : the technically incorrect use of two or more distinct items (as claims, charges, or defenses) in a single legal action
Politicians have practiced the art of duplicity for centuries. It is nothing new. In fact the assault on American Liberty has waged on since before its inception. If we could manage to get some actual history taught in our schools again, we could teach our children to recognize it. And therein lies the problem; the fox is guarding the hen house—the Progressive Leftists are in charge of our children’s education. They feign compassion, concern and talk of improved results, while dumbing the students down and indoctrinating them into victimolgy and group think. There is abundant evidence to prove this; look at the curriculum, fewer art and music classes, no tolerance policies, food Nazis in the lunchrooms, no ‘winning’ in sports. This is all a bunch of namby-pamby falderal and it is duplicitous!
Dana Loesch on Common Core
The Left’s Common Core claim is to make graduating students ‘job ready’, but these kids aren’t even reading at the 8th grade level when they leave high school and it IS BY DESIGN! The Progressive Left doesn’t want citizens who can think for themselves; that’s inconvenient at times. They need Pavlovian shrews, who can be made to go along when required. The Obama administration is entirely dependent on their low-information voting base. They want ignorant serfs, who are dependent on government subsidies, voting for the continuation of their EBT privileges, housing or other govt. assistance.
In the same way they are trying to grow their base by indoctrinating our children in our schools, the ruling class, beltway elites are doing their damnedest to ram ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ down our throats in order to create more government dependent Democrat voters. And amazingly, some of the GOP’s top dogs are going right along with it—because they’re in on it. They don’t want to disrupt the gravy train, they just want a chance to be the engineer—they want to drive the train.
We … want to derail it!
The following audio-video provides us the opportunity to witness the collision of low-information logic with the ‘comprehensive immigration reform/amnesty’ issue:
Mark Steyn vs. ultra low-information pro-amnesty caller
We have very steep hill to climb and we’re going to be fought the entire distance. We need some ‘cultural first responders’ to spread the good word of Liberty and we can begin to undo more than a century worth of damage wrought by Progressives and their endless meddling in the affairs of others.

James Clyburns Views On Calling Clarence Thomas An Uncle Tom Evolved Overnight

Opinion by AAABTonto:
First off, this belies their prejudice. This is bigoted. It is surreal and absurd. How is one black man’s perspective traitorous to another black man whose point of view differs? It seems to me that Clyburn believes that blacks are entitled to special dispensations just because they are black. So, liberal blacks are upset with Justice Thomas because of recent SCOTUS opinion on Affirmative Action. God forbid that we might start to judge people by the the content of their character instead of the color of one’s skin; but then, guys like Clyburn wouldn’t have a job.
The second part of this is that no one is limiting anyone’s right to vote; least of all Justice Clarence Thomas. Clyburne is referencing Voter ID and has his panties in a wad over this idea that requiring an ID to vote is some how a hindrance to the disadvantaged. IT IS NOT. If one wants to get cigarettes, a six pack, open a bank account, rent an apartment, get on an airplane, access a govt. building or sign up for food stamps, YOU NEED A PHOTO ID!
This battle was also fought in Indiana and the opponents of Voter ID could not produce a single witness to testify that they were in anyway inhibited from voting by this requirement. The means justifies the end. They want to win by hook or crook and their feigned indigence at something that is so sensible, is evidence of their duplicity.
Voter ID laws might inhibit the Democrats ability to cheat elections …
Voter ID laws might be a ‘hindrance’ to voter fraud … which is exactly the damned idea that makes it GOOD LAW!
