Parallel GOP Universes: Hyperbolic and Counter-Intuitive Myths, Claims and Canards July 9-22, 2013

West said he had “heard it a thousand times that Trayvon Martin was unarmed.”

“What the evidence will show you is that’s not true,” he insisted. “Trayvon Martin armed himself with the concrete sidewalk and used it to smash George Zimmerman’s head, no different than if he picked up a brick or bashed the head against a wall. That is a deadly weapon.”

 

So every black man walking on a sidewalk should be considered armed and dangerous?

Rep. Stephen Fincher (R, Tenn.) explained his position on food stamps by stating, “The role of citizens, of Christians, of humanity is to take care of each other, but not for Washington to steal from those in the country and give to others in the country.” The Congressman’s remarks come on the heels of his taking the biblical route when responding to Representative Juan Vargas’ (D-Calif.) somewhat different take on the teachings of Jesus. During a recent House Agriculture Committee debate over the Farm Bill (which contains the food stamp budget), Vargas, citing the Book of Matthew, noted, “[Jesus] says how you treat the least among us, the least of our brothers, that’s how you treat him.” Vargas also noted that  Jesus directly mentions the importance of feeding the hungry. Not to be outdone by a Godless Democrat, Congressman Fincher responded with his own Bible quote taken from the Book of Thessalonians — “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”

 

But it’s apparently OK to use taxpayer money to pay Fincher $3.5 million in farm  subsidies.

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said Monday that protesters upset with the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial were “prepared basically to be a lynch mob” during an appearance on CNN.

“The fact is, six women sat on a jury for five solid weeks. I watched these protesters, none of whom read the transcript, none of whom sat through five weeks of the trial, all of whom were prepared basically to be a lynch mob,” Gingrich said. “They only wanted one verdict, and the verdict was guilty.”

 

The Hill

God, if Newt didn’t exist we’d have to invent him: an ahistorical historian.

Unassimilated minorities in America typically hate the place. They frequently have valid and legitimate gravamen for their hatred. Anyone who looks at the rates at which African-Americans are aborted, shot, fail out of school and wind up either jobless or incarcerated couldn’t be entirely blamed for believing that most of the rest of America is attempting to eject them from our culture the way a white blood cell attacks a hostile bacteria. Absent any back-story, I really can’t blame them for hating my guts as a nameless, faceless White Man on a visceral level. Now quit being shocked. I only differ from the herd by being proudly uncultured enough to state the obvious and unpalatable truth….

So we already fail miserably at assimilating the cultural and racial minorities we have in Post-modern America. We don’t intend to assimilate them or in any way make them feel like a valued and decent contributor to our society. We use social welfare programs as an insulting and demeaning bribe for them not to burn our cities or shoot people. People not blessed enough to be part of our cognitive elite understand very well that the pampered upper-echelons of American Society consider the American Lower Middle Class no better than cretinous Moorlocks from a sci-fi dystopia

“Zimmerman, Martin and the Failed American Melting Pot, “ Red State.

 

“‘If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon.’ And this President wouldn’t bat a eyelash over the fact that ‘his son’ is a dead gangsta wannabe who simply jumped the wrong guy and got what he deserved. After all, his death may well resurrect the President’s failed agenda.”

 

“It’s Not Over,” Wizbang.

This is about as vile as it can get.

The purpose of today’s civil-rights establishment is not to seek justice, but to seek power for blacks in American life based on the presumption that they are still, in a thousand subtle ways, victimized by white racism. This idea of victimization is an example of what I call a “poetic truth.” Like poetic license, it bends the actual truth in order to put forward a larger and more essential truth—one that, of course, serves one’s cause. Poetic truths succeed by casting themselves as perfectly obvious: “America is a racist nation”; “the immigration debate is driven by racism”; “Zimmerman racially stereotyped Trayvon.” And we say, “Yes, of course,” lest we seem to be racist. Poetic truths work by moral intimidation, not reason.

Shelby Steele, “The Decline of the Civil Rights Establishment, WSJ

Civil rights leaders have no moral core, they simply seek advantage and continually play the race card. Rather than being victims of American history, they are really now victimizing America’s moral generosity. This reversal is akin to making George Zimmerman into the victim.

his appointees for high office were demonstrably corrupt, incompetent or pursuing a toxic socialist or gay ideology” — as well as with RINOs like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio; he mourned the absence of “True conservatives – men like Ronald Reagan, John Wayne and Jimmy Stewart, men who were willing to stand up to bullies and call a spade a spade,” and that “modern man has been feminized by overwhelmingly liberal feminist teachers who see playing dodge-ball in the schoolyard as the moral equivalent of playing with a loaded gun.”
