From CNN:

O’Malley apologizes for saying ‘all lives matter’ at liberal conference
By Chris Moody, CNN Senior Digital Correspondent; Video by Jeremy Moorhead
Updated 10:11 AM ET, Sun July 19, 2015

Phoenix (CNN)Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized on Saturday for saying “All lives matter” while discussing police violence against African-Americans with liberal demonstrators.

Several dozen demonstrators interrupted the former Maryland governor while he was speaking here at the Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of liberal activists, demanding that he address criminal justice and police brutality. When they shouted, “Black lives matter!” a rallying cry of protests that broke out after several black Americans were killed at the hands of police in recent months, O’Malley responded: “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.”

The demonstrators, who were mostly black, responded by booing him and shouting him down.

Later that day, O’Malley apologized for using the phrase in that context if it was perceived that he was minimizing the importance of blacks killed by police.

“I meant no disrespect,” O’Malley said in an interview on This Week in Blackness, a digital show. “That was a mistake on my part and I meant no disrespect. I did not mean to be insensitive in any way or communicate that I did not understand the tremendous passion, commitment and feeling and depth of feeling that all of us should be attaching to this issue.”

Bernie Sanders then got hooted for being old and white. By the way, the interviewer on stage with O’Malley and Sanders getting no respect either from the furious blacks is the media’s favorite pseudo-Mexican illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas. (After all these decades, the media has never been able to find an articulate Mexican illegal immigrant, so they’ve adopted a gay Filipino with a Spanish name as their stand-in.)

  1. That white lives don’t matter could be a corollary to the principle that blacks can’t be racist.

  2. O’Malley’s a narcicisstic pipsqueak.His whole campaign is ab0ut how wondrously handsome and lovable he is and how that alone makes the presidency his by entitlement. He’ll tack right or left, yielding always to the prevailing wind. He’s the white Obama, or Obama without the fund of inappropriate racial grievance and sophomoric lefty prejudices. Their IQs are probably comparable, low 105-110 range. Too dumb for the bigs..

    The Black Alliance for Just Immigration seems to be for the establishment of open borders with Haiti, the black Caribbean and all of Africa.

    It is another Soros funded Astro-Turf front group:

    http://www.vdare.com/posts/george-soros-is-the-riotmaster-billionaire-communist-puppetmaster-financed-and-organized-the-trayvon-martin-mike-brown-eric-garner-astroturf-movement-in-support-of-black-thugs

    Ms. Frederique works with Opal Tometi, co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter — a hashtag that was developed after the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida — and helped promote it on DPA’s news feeds. Ms. Tometi runs the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, a group to which Mr. Soros gave $100,000 in 2011, according to the most recent of his foundation’s tax filings.

    “I think #BlackLivesMatter’s success is because of organizing. This was created after Trayvon Martin, and there has been sustained organizing and conversations about police violence since then,” said Ms. Frederique. “Its explosion into the mainstream recently is because it connects all the dots at a time when everyone was lost for words. ‘Black Lives Matter’ is liberating, unapologetic and leaves no room for confusion.”
     
    Looks to me that Soros wants Hillary to have no meaningful opposition throughout the primaries. O'Malley and Sanders however, must be crushed from the get go. That way Hillary can run with no enemies to her left and pose as a "moderate" during the campaign. However once elected Hillary will be able to show her true Alinsklte roots and loyalty to Soros.

    Hillary's biggest threat is not Sanders, its Jim Webb, Soros will keep his commie thugs harping on Sanders and O'Malley so Hillary can triangulate against Webb.

    We will see if Soro's money can make this all happen.

    Bernie Sanders being from Vermont has never spoken in front of a large crowd as Black as the one in Phoenix. He has been sheltered from the Black racial demographic his entire life.

    Even Jared Taylor has more experience than Bernie Sanders when it comes to speaking in front of an audience that has a large Black component.

    Jared Taylor has had racial debates with many Black college students. Of course he did with lots of security surrounding so that none of the Black college students would start charging at him Michael Brown style.

    Uh, hardly. He grew up in Brooklyn, and went to the U of Chicago, and did the civil rights thing in both places. He's had plenty of exposure to blacks, albeit back when their music was still listenable, before most Americans were born.

    But he is very vulnerable to the Chappaqua question, namely, if diversity is so treat, why do you avoid it? "For thee, not me?" If only someone would dare to ask it.

    Vermont is also where James C Loewen hid out for two decades while preaching to the rest of us "wrong kind of white people" about racial matters.

    I guess this tweet from Dave Weigel is the most anybody is going get of the truth of the matter:
    "Started to talk to one protester. Handler pulled her aside; she told me she'd have 'talking points' later."

    In the CNN clip, the prominent O’Malley-dissing harpie was Tia Oso, identified as being with the “Black Alliance for Just Immigration.”
     
    I had been wondering about Hillary being behind it, but "Black Alliance for Just Immigration" is classic Soros. He is funding her if I'm not mistaken, so no "Black Lives Matter" protesters are going to be interested in "questioning" her.
    , @rod1963
    It would be naive to think Soros would want a crusading socialist in charge. He doesn't, he prefers more putty like people like the Clintons who can be rented by the hour for favors.

    The most definitive article on the progressive astroturf phenomenon was written by John Stauber of Counterpunch in 2013:

    The self-labeled Progressive Movement that has arisen over the past decade is primarily one big propaganda campaign serving the political interests of the the Democratic Party’s richest one-percent who created it. The funders and owners of the Progressive Movement get richer and richer off Wall Street and the corporate system. But they happen to be Democrats, cultural and social liberals who can’t stomach Republican policies...
     
    http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/03/15/the-progressive-movement-is-a-pr-front-for-rich-democrats/

    Remember that the average voter has always been found to be, much to the chagrin of ideologues and high IQ people, socially conservative/economically liberal...
    It is taking more and more societal upheaval in the form of stirring up ethnic and racial hatreds to maintain favorable outcomes for our oligarchs.

    Think Progress: This "project" of the American Progress Action Fund, which is a "sister advocacy organization"of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress and Campus Progress, seeks to transform "progressive ideas into policy through rapid response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing and advocacy, and partnerships with other progressive leaders throughout the country and the world."
     
    Soros put Obama in the White House by presenting him as a post racial moderate. He wants to do something similar with Hillary, a "post gender" moderate. Once Hillary is sworn in however it will be "I am woman, hear me bitch!!!" 24/7/365 and DIE DIE DIE you cis-gendered white males.

    Like I said Soros wants Hillary to have no opposition to her left. Soros bankrolls Think Progress. It is totally his creation and baby.

    http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1237

    Think Progress: This “project” of the American Progress Action Fund, which is a “sister advocacy organization”of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress and Campus Progress, seeks to transform “progressive ideas into policy through rapid response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing and advocacy, and partnerships with other progressive leaders throughout the country and the world.”

    Soros put Obama in the White House by presenting him as a post racial moderate. He wants to do something similar with Hillary, a “post gender” moderate. Once Hillary is sworn in however it will be “I am woman, hear me bitch!!!” 24/7/365 and DIE DIE DIE you cis-gendered white males.

    Pray this does not happen!!!

    Blacks in the U.S have adopted Adolf Hitler style Nazi racist attitudes. By disagreeing with All Lives Matter and only agreeing that Black lives matter, they are basically adopting the mentality that Blacks are the master race just like Hitler thought Germans were the master race. I am sure the late Adolf would also disagree with the All Lives Matter slogan.

    Most African Americans believe that Asian lives and White lives are inferior to Black lives, which is no different from Adolf Hitler’s belief that Jewish lives were inferior to German Gentile lives.

    If you do not believe that All Lives Matter, than you are a sick twisted Human Being with no heart. Blacks are taking racial tribalism to a very dark sick twisted place.

    By the way, the interviewer on stage with O’Malley and Sanders getting no respect either from the furious blacks is the media’s favorite pseudo-Mexican illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas. (After all these decades, the media has never been able to find an articulate Mexican illegal immigrant, so they’ve adopted a gay Filipino with a Spanish name as their stand-in.)

    O’Malley seemed quite upset at Vargas the morning after the conference:

I remember when I was a kid seeing the pamphlet reprints & “news clip” rebroadcasts of USSR agit-P.R., often in English of course, about the horrible vassal conditions of ghetto blacks in New York or Philadelphia or Chicago, which were presented as proof of the volatility and ultimate incendiary demise-in-the-offing of kapitalist Yankee Disneyland (referring to the oppressed as “Negroes” IIRC but then again, no advertising campaign ages perfectly).

    The Soviets are long gone, but somehow the supply of propaganda has blossomed in the interval, implying greater demand… Capitalism gets the latter laugh as usual. Here’s some Zeitgeist for ya:

    The concerns and priorities of black voters are far more in line with Sanders' concerns and priorities than they are with those of the professional activist set claiming to speak on behalf of all black Americans.

    Sanders is also on the wrong side of black voters on a whole host of issues ranging from transgender bathrooms to environmentally friendly backyard composting. You are regurgitating some “What’s The Matter With Black Kansas” crap at us.

    “Started to talk to one protester. Handler pulled her aside; she told me she’d have ‘talking points’ later.”

    In the CNN clip, the prominent O’Malley-dissing harpie was Tia Oso, identified as being with the “Black Alliance for Just Immigration.”

    I had been wondering about Hillary being behind it, but “Black Alliance for Just Immigration” is classic Soros. He is funding her if I’m not mistaken, so no “Black Lives Matter” protesters are going to be interested in “questioning” her.

    Ridiculous stunts like this reinforce my growing belief that a lot of the SJW nonsense is being pushed by wealthy people and groups who want to stop class solidarity among working Americans by dividing people on the basis of race and gender.

    From the 1960s onward, the wealthy have been the only real beneficiaries of the “New Left”, or whatever else it’s been called since then. Abandoning working-class and middle-class solidarity in favor of identitarianism has been a political and moral disaster.

    John McCain called Donald Trump supporters a bunch of crazy people. Why are Donald Trump supporters crazy? Because they want to see immigration levels in this country reduced and want to secure our border. John McCain is a shill for cheap 3rd world labor.

    On Fox And Friends last night they reported that the U.S government lets in over 120,000 Muslim immigrants into the U.S every year. And people wonder why homegrown Islamic terrorism on U.S soil is becoming more common.

    Why do we need that many Muslims entering the U.S every year? What not enough Falafel restaurants in this country? John McCain talks about how he is concerned about radical Islam becoming a growing threat on U.S soil, but yet he never points the blame on our country's disastrous immigration system that lets in so many immigrants from Muslim countries who hate America.

Whatever good government / invest in our future type policies that were the moral crusading force for white liberals are now taking a backseat to raw politics of color. It won’t be pretty either. The inter-generational change that is occurring within the Democratic Party will be accelerated by white rats jumping off the sinking ship to swim to their natural home.

    I look at the 20th century… and I see the rise of men like Ataturk, Mussolini, Franco, Hitler, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho, Castro, and others.

    And I think such are not possible today.

    Such men arose to prominence cuz of massive geo-political, cultural, economic, and military earthquakes.

    Stalin, a nobody from Georgia, becomes supreme ruler of Soviet Union.
    Mao, a farmer’s son, becomes titan of China.
    Hitler, son of Austrian bureaucrat, becomes ruler of Germany and almost all of Europe.
    and etc.

    But since then, the world has stabilized. China is now stable, and rulers come from the System. No more Mao’s.
    And Germany has a democratic system of exchanging rulers.
    Most of the world is like this except the Middle East where everything is up in the air due to wars and mayhem.
    The one great exception is Putin who rose to great heights because Russia was so unstable in the 90s.

    Crises make ‘radical’ things possible. During crises, a ‘nobody’ can become somebody. If Hitler, Mussolini, or Mao were around today, they would come nowhere near power as the System is so stable. They thrived on Crises and moved to the top.

    Jews rule America. And as long as US is stable, Jews will continue to rule since they have a lock on the System. And for there to be stability in America, the White Core has to remain at the center of America. Black America is unstable. So is Hispanic America, with all the illegals and crime and corruption. It is the White Core that keeps America stable. This is good for Jews, and it is bad for Alternative Right since the AR will gain a chance only in times of crisis. The current System has no room for the Alt Right as long as bulk of white core feels content.

    But if the White Core collapses, then US will lurch into crisis mode, and then all bets are off. The System will no longer have a solid white core to rely on. Everything will be up for grabs, and even Alt Right will get to play in the new radical politics.

    In a way, Jews are right to see whites as the main rivals to their power. But Jews fail to see how valuable the White Core is to the sustainability of the System that favors and supports Jewish power. When the White Core collapses–and the greatest threat is Section 8–, then whites will grow angry and desperate, and then there’s no telling what will happen.

    An age may dawn again when men like Mussolini, Lenin, Ataturk, Lenin, Stalin, Ho, Castro, and etc are possible once again for such men feed on Crisis.

    I've suspected for awhile now that this #blacklivesma.... grouping is something put together as in a Soros-color revolution type way. Too neat, too catchy; it's origins artificially created.

    Yes.

    To recap, we know from the Washington Times that Soros funded the groups that coordinated the Black Lives protests to the tune of 33 million.

    The most definitive article on the progressive astroturf phenomenon was written by John Stauber of Counterpunch in 2013:

    The self-labeled Progressive Movement that has arisen over the past decade is primarily one big propaganda campaign serving the political interests of the the Democratic Party’s richest one-percent who created it. The funders and owners of the Progressive Movement get richer and richer off Wall Street and the corporate system. But they happen to be Democrats, cultural and social liberals who can’t stomach Republican policies…

    Remember that the average voter has always been found to be, much to the chagrin of ideologues and high IQ people, socially conservative/economically liberal…

    The Black Alliance for Just Immigration seems to be for the establishment of open borders with Haiti, the black Caribbean and all of Africa.

    It is another Soros funded Astro-Turf front group:

    http://www.vdare.com/posts/george-soros-is-the-riotmaster-billionaire-communist-puppetmaster-financed-and-organized-the-trayvon-martin-mike-brown-eric-garner-astroturf-movement-in-support-of-black-thugs

    Ms. Frederique works with Opal Tometi, co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter — a hashtag that was developed after the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida — and helped promote it on DPA’s news feeds. Ms. Tometi runs the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, a group to which Mr. Soros gave $100,000 in 2011, according to the most recent of his foundation’s tax filings.

    “I think #BlackLivesMatter’s success is because of organizing. This was created after Trayvon Martin, and there has been sustained organizing and conversations about police violence since then,” said Ms. Frederique. “Its explosion into the mainstream recently is because it connects all the dots at a time when everyone was lost for words. ‘Black Lives Matter’ is liberating, unapologetic and leaves no room for confusion.”
     
    Looks to me that Soros wants Hillary to have no meaningful opposition throughout the primaries. O'Malley and Sanders however, must be crushed from the get go. That way Hillary can run with no enemies to her left and pose as a "moderate" during the campaign. However once elected Hillary will be able to show her true Alinsklte roots and loyalty to Soros.

    Hillary's biggest threat is not Sanders, its Jim Webb, Soros will keep his commie thugs harping on Sanders and O'Malley so Hillary can triangulate against Webb.

    We will see if Soro's money can make this all happen.

    Hillary’s biggest threat is not Sanders, it’s Jim Webb.

    I can’t see Jim Webb getting any traction whatsoever in the Democratic Party. Five years ago he wrote an op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal, “Diversity and the Myth of White Privilege.” The Democrats will never allow someone who would write something like that represent them.

    http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052748703724104575379630952309408

    I would vote for Webb over most of the Republicans currently running.

Just like how Obama took care of the Open Borders crowd and the LGBT groups while campaigning on "Jobs for Americans", Hope and Change and "traditional marriage".

    And In that scenario Webb will gain no traction unless , he relentlessly plays the "Trump" card on immigration.

    I'm always pointing out to friends to beware of the "catnip". A voter gets seduced and then barely notices the crazy catnip their beloved pol has just served up to a different constituency...why sociopaths are legion.

    By the way, there is a candidate guide matching questionnaire I recommend from "I Side With"; huge database of people who've taken it. Not just for yourself, but *it illuminates much about the electorate*. They provide a lot of info on how you compare to others, even geographically and plot you ideologically. One downside I saw was Marco Rubio stood out for either being vague or not answering; and those answers were inferred. This means many social conservatives are getting him as a top pick, besting even Rick Santorum.

    FWIW, it confirmed that I'm a centrist, just ever so slightly to the right and slightly Authoritarian... Naturally, my recommended pols, Santorum and Sanders (no joke), are MSM-confirmed "crazy nutters".

  68. The thing that’s weird about the “Black Lives Matter” campaign is that, evidently, the only thing that makes a black life matter is being killed by a white person.

    Black person killed by white police officer or armed white person– Matters a lot!!
    Black person killed by black person — Ho hum, move along, nothing to see here.

    Isn’t that an implicit salute to White Supremacy, that the only thing that makes a black life matter is that a white has ended it?

    Bernie Sanders being from Vermont has never spoken in front of a large crowd as Black as the one in Phoenix. He has been sheltered from the Black racial demographic his entire life.

    Even Jared Taylor has more experience than Bernie Sanders when it comes to speaking in front of an audience that has a large Black component.

    Jared Taylor has had racial debates with many Black college students. Of course he did with lots of security surrounding so that none of the Black college students would start charging at him Michael Brown style.

    Bernie Sanders being from Vermont… has been sheltered from the Black racial demographic his entire life.

    Uh, hardly. He grew up in Brooklyn, and went to the U of Chicago, and did the civil rights thing in both places. He’s had plenty of exposure to blacks, albeit back when their music was still listenable, before most Americans were born.

    But he is very vulnerable to the Chappaqua question, namely, if diversity is so treat, why do you avoid it? “For thee, not me?” If only someone would dare to ask it.

    Vermont is also where James C Loewen hid out for two decades while preaching to the rest of us “wrong kind of white people” about racial matters.

    Anyway, Soros will make absolutely certain Sanders does not run as a third party candidate. If Bernie Sanders ever failed to leave a waitress a tip, you will hear about it.

    O'Malley is a poser who has no morals or spine, he will be bought off with the promise of a cabinet position in a Hilary administration.

    Jim Webb has zero money, still he is Hillary's biggest threat.

    Like I said, eliminate any opposition from the left, old or new left, and Hillary runs a triangulation campaign against Webb as the "moderate" in the primaries and "No Huevos" in the general with Trump playing the Ross Perot spoiler role for he Republicans.

    Start praying Hillary has another "fall" (stroke?) or "gulp", a sex tape in her future.

It doesn't matter if your charge is credible--it just has to give your partisans something to hang onto. For example, in the 2012 campaign Obama blamed high unemployment on the fact that Republicans hadn't supported his jobs bill. It didn't seem to matter that Democrats hadn't supported it either. When questioned about the San Francisco shooting by the multiply deported illegal alien, Josh Earnest said that it was the fault of Republicans for not supporting the comprehensive immigration reform bill, which contained funds for enforcement.

    It doesn't matter what happens. You just need something to say. Soon there will be enough non-whites in the country that no vaguely conservative candidate will ever be elected again. The Republicans have already dropped many of their "divisive" issues and are ready to drop any that remain.

    You really cannot call the Democratic Party liberal or progressive any more. Whatever good government / invest in our future type policies that were the moral crusading force for white liberals are now taking a backseat to raw politics of color. It won't be pretty either. The inter-generational change that is occurring within the Democratic Party will be accelerated by white rats jumping off the sinking ship to swim to their natural home. The best part of this is that as moderate liberal whites shrink to a rump they will have a much harder time attacking conservative whites using race because to white voters it will have become a compliment.

    This one deserves the gold frame. Geriatric whites are going to be on stage gibbering about the chimney sweeps’ union and conditions in the poorhouses, and restive ethnics are going to be screaming THE EFF YOU TALKIN BOUT CRACKA. GIBS ME SUM RACIAL JUST-US!

    As I’m sure you’ve also noticed, the same scenario is playing out in a more genteel fashion with the Republicans. The establishment GOP is droning on about marginal tax rates while its white base is slowly but surely realizing that what it’s really all about is blood and soil.

    Remember that the average voter has always been found to be, much to the chagrin of ideologues and high IQ people, socially conservative/economically liberal…
     
    …and always quite willing to betray the former in order to keep the latter.

    Which is why social democracy is suicidal by its nature: your enemies will promise you more than your friends ever can. So you vote for them.

    1000x’s yes!

    I’m always pointing out to friends to beware of the “catnip”. A voter gets seduced and then barely notices the crazy catnip their beloved pol has just served up to a different constituency…why sociopaths are legion.

    By the way, there is a candidate guide matching questionnaire I recommend from “I Side With”; huge database of people who’ve taken it. Not just for yourself, but *it illuminates much about the electorate*. They provide a lot of info on how you compare to others, even geographically and plot you ideologically. One downside I saw was Marco Rubio stood out for either being vague or not answering; and those answers were inferred. This means many social conservatives are getting him as a top pick, besting even Rick Santorum.

    FWIW, it confirmed that I’m a centrist, just ever so slightly to the right and slightly Authoritarian… Naturally, my recommended pols, Santorum and Sanders (no joke), are MSM-confirmed “crazy nutters”.

    Surprisingly (to me), I Side With matched me up with Marco Rubio. I had only two "Most Important" issues, both concerning immigration. Of my "More Important" issues, four of seven were on the same topic.

    (There are plenty of other significant issues. But I doubt the ability of any President X to improve the situation very much, in those cases.)

    "I Side With" thus portrays Rubio as aggressively Restrictionist on immigration. Is that in line with his record? Assuming it is -- is Rubio likely smart enough and effective enough to make a difference in this area?

    Heh. Truth is always pointing at the old fairy tales and yesterday’s news.

    However, I think they made a big mistake getting rid of the black guy:

    The world’s largest restaurant chain has seen disappointing sales for five straight quarters, reporting a fourth-quarter profit Thursday that barely moved from a year earlier. The company’s stock price is sluggish, rising just 7 percent since CEO Don Thompson took over in 2012, while the Dow Jones industrials are up 27 percent in the same period.

    They would probably be out of their misery now if they hadn’t.

    This iSteve post is an instance where the comments overshadow the original essay.

    Yes to Steve's title, it's a darkly amusing Circular Firing Squad. Yet O'Malley was a pretty good mayor & governor, for a True Believer, so I get no joy from witnessing this writhing and grovelling. At the end of the clip, Bernie comes across as a vacuum-tube salesman, befuddled by these solid-state transistiformers. (Why, back in Vermont, sales of my SWPL-centric Old Leftism have stayed reliably high!)

    @freedom-fries' link to Politics Isn't About Policy was insightful:


    When I say “X is not about Y,” I mean that while Y is the function commonly said to drive most X behavior, in fact some other function Z drives X behavior more. *
     
    @anonymous-antimarxist and others document that much of this SJW indignation is kabuki theater, directed by George Soros' organizations, for their own purposes.

    The Black Alliance for Just Immigration's staff profiles would be rich ground for psychotherapists, were any so rash as to comment on what they see. The Executive Director and Program Associate loathe the folkways of their adopted country, while the remainder of the staff despise the culture of their native land. Typical teen angst, distilled into a poisonous lifelong Calling.

    Naturally, Soros-funded BAJI calls for more hateful immigrant cowbells.

    As this grubby presidential selection unfolds, it's worth reflecting on Ron Unz' warning on the value of compromised, malleable politicians to the elites (final six paragraphs here). It's hard to imagine a candidate who could be less appealing to an informed, self-aware polity than the always-failing-upward Hilary Clinton. So, it makes sense to see Miss Oso as a clown-suited player in Act I ("No Enemies To The Left") of that Broadway-Hit-In-The-Making, Hillary '16!

Backstory, Weigel helped write, but without attribution, a story about the Black Lives protestors for the Wapo. Today, he wrote one focusing on liberals who support Bernie. After Weigel makes this clear when confronted with irate Fighter, Fighter reveals anti-Bernie animus:


    @daveweigel Sanders talked over the issues of #BlackLivesMatter at #Netroots. Why isn't that in your story?

    At least a dozen stories could have been taken away, for starters, "Clinton, Webb Dodge Racial Bullet". But Fighter just knows the only story is, "Bernie is a Miserable Failure on Black Lives".
    Hillary, Webb, and even O'Malley aren't discussed. The desire to influence rather than punish would also be more expected behavior of a true believer. And so on and so forth.

    Astroturf or not, I'm interested to see how this plays out in the Democratic formality-primary given that a large, seemingly influential faction of their base isn't capable of what a 1950s civics teacher would call informed political engagement. The angry-fringe roustabouts lean on "whataboutism" partially because such emotional displays resonate as gritty/authentic with a separate faction of higher-IQ liberals, but it's also because they aren't smart enough to influence the party machinations through other means.

    The D. Trump saga shows how the consultant-propounded myth of a giant MSM hive mind is now outdated, since a parallel media infrastructure of conservative mandarins & big-shots exists today and often has business-social relations with the "liberal media" of yore. They're busily trying to airbrush him out of the picture because the guy is a master publicity whore who quickly intuits the most efficient way to get headlines without competition, heretofore by calling out the amnesty traitors in D.C. but again yesterday by stabbing at McCain over the Veteran Affairs clusterbang. One doesn't need to find Trump the most viable general election candidate to believe in his right to campaign as loudly and "tackily" as he wants; the attitude of our Republican media experts is evidently quite different, as revealed by their hurry-up-bolt-the-doors-close-the-window-blinds surrender.

    Wait, you mean Jonah Goldberg and Rush Limbaugh have been lying about the MSM . . . and, and, and, they are actually part of the hive mind themselves!!!?!

    Next you’ll be telling me the GOP isn’t actually socially conservative and that the staff of NRO are a bunch of dim-witted closet cases. I don’t think I could handle that, so please stop!

    You really cannot call the Democratic Party liberal or progressive any more. Whatever good government / invest in our future type policies that were the moral crusading force for white liberals are now taking a backseat to raw politics of color. It won't be pretty either. The inter-generational change that is occurring within the Democratic Party will be accelerated by white rats jumping off the sinking ship to swim to their natural home. The best part of this is that as moderate liberal whites shrink to a rump they will have a much harder time attacking conservative whites using race because to white voters it will have become a compliment.

    The next President will preside over a severe economic recession, potentially including the substantial write-down of US government debt. Better a Democrat in office when that happens.

    Except that it won't stick to the Democrats anyway. The genius of the two party system is that you can always blame the other party for unfortunate developments. It doesn't matter if your charge is credible--it just has to give your partisans something to hang onto. For example, in the 2012 campaign Obama blamed high unemployment on the fact that Republicans hadn't supported his jobs bill. It didn't seem to matter that Democrats hadn't supported it either. When questioned about the San Francisco shooting by the multiply deported illegal alien, Josh Earnest said that it was the fault of Republicans for not supporting the comprehensive immigration reform bill, which contained funds for enforcement.

    It doesn't matter what happens. You just need something to say. Soon there will be enough non-whites in the country that no vaguely conservative candidate will ever be elected again. The Republicans have already dropped many of their "divisive" issues and are ready to drop any that remain.

    Soon there will be enough non-whites in the country that no vaguely conservative candidate will ever be elected again.

    But liberal politics is founded on expropriation of wealth. You can’t have a liberal regime without a productive (i.e. white) class to provide the handouts that Democrat voters want. Pretty soon there’ll be no dat to gibsme.

It seems that to the ‘I Side With’ propaganda team, refusing to broach the subject of immigration is a winning strategy that means the candidate must be in agreement with whatever the voter’s views are.

    McDonald’s has 31,000 stores on a 4,000 square foot average lot size, giving them about 3,000 acres of real estate. Let’s count locations where the bean counters exist, and call it a generous 5,000 acres.

    Ted Turner and John Malone each owns 2+ million acres. The Irving brothers own 3.6 million acres. The Catholic Church owns 177 million acres.

    Granted, the McDonald’s acreage includes some prime locations, but c’mon Troofie.
