The ravings of a Sith Conservative!

Happy Birthday Red China

Posted by darthkeller on September 30, 2009

On this day, 60 years ago (a day that the Left is so excited to celebrate), under the leadership of Mao Zedong, the People’s Republic of China was born.

Let’s PARTY!

On second thought, let’s take a look at what the Chinese communists have accomplished in the last 60 years:

  • Restrictions on freedom of speech
  • Restrictions on advocacy of independence
  • Restrictions on where you can live
  • Strict apartheid
  • Murder

But hey, that’s what the Left wants in this country, right? They have, for years, tried to shut-out the conservatives of this country, made every effort to implement socialism, cordoning off parts of American cities where conservatives are not welcome and requesting that presidents, with whom they don’t agree, be killed.

Sounds eerily similar to me…

Then there’s the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 which left hundreds dead. After the death of pro-democracy and anti-corruption official Hu Yaobang, millions gathered for his memorial. During that memorial, disillusioned Chinese Communist Party members, Trotskyists (those who followed Leon Trotsky’s idea of socialism), and free market reformers seemed to join forces in a protest against the Chinese government. From all accounts, from May 15 though May 20, there were no incidents of violence, but on May 20th the Chinese government implemented martial law. Though they were held back, on June 1 they returned, and this time marched into the heart of Tiananmen square. The exact number of deaths has never been reported.

And how about Mao Zedong? Let’s look at some of his quotes.

In class society, everyone lives as a member of a particular class, and every kind of thinking, without exception, is stamped with the brand of a class.

– “On Practice” (July 1937), Selected Works, Vol. I, p. 296.

Wow! That sounds awesome! Like, once you’re born, either poor or rich, you’re stuck in that class! No chance of rising up the ladder! That’s pretty much the exact opposite of America! But hey, the Left wants SOCIALISM!

Our educational policy must enable everyone who receives an education to develop morally, intellectually and physically and become a worker with both socialist consciousness and culture.

– On the Correct Handling of Contradictions Among the People (February 27, 1959), 1st pocket ed., p. 44.

Hmmm… How about some education with your indoctrination? That sounds great! Almost sounds like “The Story of Stuff” that was recently shown to our kids in public schools. Or, how about teachers forcing their kids to sing songs about Obama (their reasoning: It was Black History Month… Ever hear of George Washington Carver, Martin Luther King, Jr, Harriet Tubman? How about we study those people? And, by the way, “learning about” and “singing praises to” are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!) .

We could talk about the Hundred Flowers Campaign… A period from 1956 until 1957 when the Communist Party of China allowed open dissent against the government. The idea was to have intellectuals discuss the country’s problems in order to promote new arts and new cultural institutions. However, in July 1957, Mao changed his mind, stating that many of the letters had violated the idea of “healthy criticism”, and that they had reached a “harmful and uncontrollable” level. The final result of the Hundred Flowers Campaign: Persecution of intellectuals, students, artists and dissidents labeled “rightists”. Over 550,000 people were imprisoned, tortured, or killed.

As I read this, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Hillary Clinton proudly proclaiming in 2005: “We are Americans, We have the right to participate and debate any administration.” Follow that with the words of Nancy Pelosi: “Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American” in reaction to the town-hall protests

Then there was the Great Leap Forward, which was intended as an alternative model for economic growth, a period in which private food production was banned for a more communal system, and peasants were forced to work on massive infrastructure projects and the small-scale production of iron and steel. During this time, Mao and other party leaders ordered the implementation of a variety of unproven and unscientific new agricultural techniques by the new communes. This led to a 15% drop in grain production in 1959, and another 10% drop in 1960, with no recovery in 1961.

This drop in food is indirectly linked to the deaths of tens of millions of Chinese peasants, and thought to be the cause of the Great Chinese Famine. This program was so bad that the Party leadership forced Mao to end it a year earlier than planned

All in all, Mao’s policies have been attributed to the deaths of between 40 and 70 million people

So, while the Left are out partying like it’s 1949, I’ll do my part to ensure that this type of government never takes hold in the United States!

Headlines of the Day

Posted by darthkeller on September 28, 2009

So, perusing the Drudge Report, here are a sampling of the articles that I saw, mind you – I didn’t read ANY of these articles. I just perused the titles, nothing more.

  • Four Charged In Brutal Chicago Mob Beating…
  • Iran says advanced missiles can target any threat
  • Liberals seek health-care access for illegals
  • RASMUSSEN POLL: Support for Health Care Plan Falls to New Low; 41% Favor 56% Oppose…
  • MANDATORY IMMUNIZATIONS FOR 500,000 IN NY…
  • Kerry: ‘I don’t know what ‘cap and trade’ means’…
  • Michigan faces govt. shutdown…

So, with all this going on, what did Barry do today: Obama to lead ’16 Chicago bid with trip

Yes, that’s right! With OUR MONEY, “our” President decided now would be a great time to take a trip to Copenhagen. Why not? We’ve had a lot of problems with the Danes as of late!

No, Iran didn’t launch a missile today that could have hit Israel.

No, there wasn’t a proposal of ever expanding government today

What, NATO asked for help in Afghanistan? Of course Barry couldn’t know about that, he’s only met with General Stanley McChrystal “once in 70 days”

Hey, the good news: Now the NEA can start creating art for something that could possibly help our country, or at least Barry’s friends.

So, let me get this straight: Barry wants to bring the Olympic Games to Chicago… The home of Al Capone, Rod Blagojavich, Tony Rezko and Barrack Obama? What could possibly go wrong there?

I’VE GOT IT: A gang attacks the athletes from other countries in an attempt to give Americans the edge

This could be the start of a new Olympic sport! And don’t forget to watch the media’s 100 meter backpedal from all of it!

ACORN in violation of RICO Act?

Posted by darthkeller on September 15, 2009

Ok, so in case you’ve been under a rock for the past week, you think I’m talking about voter fraud… I’m not – And you should visit BigGovernment.com before you continue.

From Wikipedia

Under RICO, a person who is a member of an enterprise that has committed any two of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period can be charged with racketeering. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $250,000 and/or sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of “racketeering activity.” RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such an enterprise to file a civil suit; if successful, the individual can collect treble damages.

So, what are those crimes one must commit in order to qualify for RICO? Here’s a list:

  • Any violation of state statutes against gambling, murder, kidnapping, extortion, arson, robbery, bribery, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical (as defined in the Controlled Substances Act);
  • Any act of bribery, counterfeiting, theft, embezzlement, fraud, dealing in obscene matter, obstruction of justice, slavery, racketeering, gambling, money laundering, commission of murder-for-hire, and several other offenses covered under the Federal criminal code (Title 18);
  • Embezzlement of union funds;
  • Bankruptcy or securities fraud;
  • Drug trafficking;
  • Money laundering and related offenses;
  • Bringing in, aiding or assisting aliens in illegally entering the country (if the action was for financial gain);
  • Acts of terrorism.

Any of those look familiar?  Let’s take the three videos from BigGovernment:

Extortion – ACORN said they would help, but that the “pimp” and the “prostitute” would have to join ACORN.  Sounds like extortion to me.

Dealing in Obscene Matter – THEY ARE SETTING UP A BROTHEL!  HELLO!

Fraud – I would say ACORN’s help in defrauding the IRS in tax money would count….

Slavery – I could be wrong, but I could swear that the “prostitute” said the girls would give her all the money, which means they are working for nothing, the very definition of slavery

Money Laundering – This is the practice of gaining money illegally and then disguising it to look legit… Like gifts from family, or gifts to family, pretty sure I heard that to
Bringing in… aliens – That’s somewhat the crutch of these videos, brining in 13 underage El Salvadorian girls to work in this brothel, so this is a definite “check”

What’s the count there?  Six… Not bad, since only two of them are necessary for RICO.  Now, the question is this: Will the MSM find the same evidence that my 2 minutes of research on Google/Wikipedia turn up, or will they continue to overlook the obvious?

If history is any teacher, it will be up to us, those of “the mob” to continue to press this story until ACORN is gone.  Of course, I could be wrong, and if I am, please let me know.  I’d love to learn more about this.

NOTE: I would like to go on record and thank Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe! These are two brave, CRAZY, kids!  They deserve the respect and admiration of all those that love America!

Why I’m not Excited about the NFL on NBC

Posted by darthkeller on September 11, 2009

I should start this with full disclosure: Yes, I know that watching college football is better than watching the NFL, but I LOVE WATCHING FOOTBALL, even the NFL.

With that said, I couldn’t be more un-excited about the start of the NFL season tonight. Why? Simple: CHRIS COLLINSWORTH

Don’t remember Chrisy? Ah, here’s a refresher for you:

Quick aside: Kobe’s the man, so to all the “haters” out there – SDASU!

Ah, what an interview. I’m sure it was one of Chris’s best. I mean, he got to bash America, not just in front of Americans, IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE WORLD! Hey, I can only think of a few others that can claim that:

Congrats Chris! Some rare company there buddy!

When I heard that John Madden retired this spring, I was so sad. I loved the way he called games, the insight he brought to the booth. But replacing John with this jack-ass? Nothing but an insult to John Madden. Oh, and NBC – You might want to remember: NFL fans are some of the most patriotic, America-LOVING people in the world… No way this could backfire!
