Friday Afternoon Roundup - We Will Barry You



WE WILL BARRY YOU

“As frustrating as HealthCare.gov may be sometimes,” Obama told ObamaCare navigators and volunteers. “We’re on the right side of history.”

It wasn’t the first time that Obama had invoked the right side of history to rally the troops. During the Arab Spring, as Mubarak resigned on his orders, he said, “History will end up recording that at every juncture in the situation in Egypt, that we were on the right side of history.”

Obama wasn’t the first man of the left to believe that he was on the right side of history.

Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev had told Western diplomats, “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!”

LEADER DU MONDE LIBRE

France isn’t right, but it is decisive and its leaders understand that nuance is a game for fools. The cheese-eaters that devoted liberal turophiles like John Kerry once looked to as a counterweight to the Texas cowboy have once again become the leading Western practitioners of cowboy diplomacy.

After the collapse of Obama’s Arab Spring, France began to set the Western agenda in the Middle East. It was the French who pushed hardest for intervention in Libya. Obama was just the muscle they brought along. And it was the French who would have dragged him into Syria if not for the UK parliament.

While Obama was making empty boasts about Al Qaeda being on the road to defeat, the French were actually doing something about it by going into Mali. It was the French who stopped Kerry from giving a blank check to Iran’s nuclear program.

If your cable channel is pulling in fewer viewers than the YouTube vlog of some Norwegian kid who does nothing except unbox exercise equipment while wearing a pig mask, you should probably give up on the cable thing.

Or go the Reality TV route.

Nothing says white privilege like correct spelling.

And who is to say what the correct spelling of a word should be? Why privilege the Euro-centric model of linguistic integrity over a multi-dimensional approach that takes in the voices of everyone and respects their spelling choices?

What about Native American trans-women of color in wheelchairs who refuse to spell to protest the historic injustices against their people?

PERIOD

In an effort to win back the hearts of the American People, the White House today announced its support of the new ObamaCar program.

"Too many Americans are driving substandard cars," said White House Spokesperson Jay Carney during today's press briefing. "In fact, there are a lot of Americans who don't even have cars. That is why the President, by executive order, has initiated the ObamaCar Program."

The new program will see that all Americans, regardless of age, place of residence, or occupation will be required to purchase a vehicle suitable to meet the standards mandated by ObamaCar.

However, Carney was quick to point out that this did not mean that anyone would be forced to give up their favorite ride.

"If you like the car you are driving now, you can keep your car. Period." Carney read from a prepared statement by President Obama. "Nobody is going to take it away from you. Period."

MEDAL OF SVOBODA

Obama on Wednesday awarded the highest honor that can be bestowed on a civilian – the Presidential Medal of Freedom – to 16 people, including a homosexual who led the socialist party in the United States.

Rustin was a fascinating character. In his youth, he was a member of the Young Communist League — the youth branch of the Communist Party USA

KERRY GOES ROGUE

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said that the Egyptian revolution was “stolen” from the youth who started it by the Muslim Brotherhood.

“Those kids in Tahrir Square, they were not motivated by any religion or ideology,” Kerry told an international security forum at the State Department on Wednesday.

Much of the rest of it is boilerplate stuff about opportunity, but a careful look shows that Kerry isn’t just disavowing the Muslim Brotherhood, but the Tunisian Islamists and, to some degree, the Sunni Syrian rebels. He’s arguing that the revolutions were hijacked by Islamic secterianism.

It’s not a completely radical view, but it’s certainly not in vogue in the corridors of power right now. The Arab Spring was supposed to reward Islamic political movements.

Kerry just threw that out the window.

ANOTHER MULTICULTURAL MILLSTONE

Sarah recalls: ‘Laura told her that she wanted to marry him, but his mother got aggressive and hit her with a shoe, calling her “a dirty white b****”.’

Two days later, Laura’s body was found in the canal. She had more than 40 stab wounds, most of those to the head, and some were defence wounds.

HE CAN SEE CAIRO FROM HIS YACHT

The clashes over Egypt and Syria show that Kerry is going to go his own way. He may have very little real power, but other countries assume that the Secretary of State represents the United States.

There’s not much to stop Kerry from saying what he wants except being removed from his post. And such a process would be as damaging to Obama as it would be to Kerry.

Hillary Clinton kept her mouth shut and didn’t dissent much from the administration’s line. Kerry has. The question is what can Obama do about it.

UNDERSTANDING

Congressman Keith Ellison, who went from Farrakhan Jew-Hater to Jon Stewart’s favorite Muslim, and Dalia Mogahed, Obama’s advisor on appeasing the Muslim Brotherhood, will join a founder of the Egyptian Nazi Party for an unforgettable evening.

And they’re all coming together at the Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding in Georgetown to discuss “Egypt and the Struggle for Democracy.”

I bet a lot of understanding will come out of this event.

THE ART INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX STRIKES AGAIN

Truly Guantanamo Bay is America’s great shame. They killed 3,000 Americans and all we give them is six hours of art classes a week. I bet the French would spring for at least eight hours of classes. And they would do a better job of covering impressionism.

Meanwhile America’s oppressive war machine dedicated to killing brown people forces Neo-Baroque painters on them. Shame on us! Shame!

PARTY OF ANTI-CHOICE

Medicaid. It saves money and creates jobs. So why not put everyone on Medicaid? Think of all the money we’ll save and the jobs we’ll create.

But while the Dems pander to the welfare voters, they screw the middle class by refusing to let people who actually work for a living keep their health care.

DEAR MILEY

“Dear Miley, Do you know that Israel is not only occupying parts of the Ottoman Empire, but that all of Machane Yehuda is an open-air concentration camp where bewildered people hunt for food, fighting with each other over scraps as mobs jostle each other?

Do you know that Israel is in violation of over 80,000 UN Resolutions, like UN Resolution 75293B Expressing the Concern of the International Community Over the Availability of Lettuce in Gaza, UN Resolution 43280C Mandating that Israel must cooperate with the International Oppressed People’s Cultural Lettuce Covenant Commission and UN Resolution 40233 Expressing the Sentiment that Israel’s efforts to starve the people of Gaza with its lettuce ban must cease?

CONGREGATION OF CONVENIENCE

Without revelation, everything becomes arbitrary. The most serious rhetoric is undone because if you discard revelation, there is no longer any confidence in anything. All things become arbitrary. Tradition is honored out of sentimentality, rather than accepted as obligation.

And that’s how it all ends.

Once a religion admits its arbitrariness by disavowing revelation, it no longer has a reason to exist except convenience.

You are certainly on a roll today. Halfway through the Friday roundup I was laughing out loud at the ridiculous, the insanity, and the downright dumb things happening in the world along with all of the terrible events we have to deal with.
Sometimes, we just have to laugh.
Thanks.

Poor girl. I don't know Laura Wilson's background, but girls who grow up in fatherless households are more vulnerable to this kind of exploitation.

Otherwise, we need a new term. There's no honor in honor killing.
