Not sure? I’ll give you a hint. It shows up at 00:47. I didn’t catch it the first time around, but it’s subtlesnark x 11. I’ll wait…

Got nothing? Take another shot. Here’s the vid:

Will someone please tell these innocents that the word “gullible” cannot be found in any English dictionary? I dunno, Babs. But I do know this:

It’s time for the Overnight Open Thread.

This leftist racist idiocy needs to stop, and while we’re at it, we might as well STOP THE REEF.

The Kluck Klams – The Ghost of Walt Kelly Speaks

[This is a repost from December 2014. Seems appropriate given the idiocy flying around the airwaves in recent days. –Bunk X]

Pogo” was penned by a famous anti-communist conservative cartoonist and his missive was directed at the Southern Democrats who created the KKK and enforced segregation via Jim Crow Laws. Walt Kelly was often censored by the liberal media newspapers for posting strips like these, so he published his uncensored opinions in “The Pogo Poop Book” in 1966.

We need more people like Walt Kelly to fight the latest “Gibber of Goblins,” and these New Goblins don’t wear white hoods either…


Martin & Zimmerman & Vice Versa

I want to talk about the Martin/Zimmerman case. I’m not interested in adding to the hyperbole of the pundits, whether left or right, or opining about bizarre court protocol. Let’s just talk about perceptions.

Say a neighborhood has had some burglaries, and there’s a man who volunteers to be a watchman. He believes he’s helping to prevent more burglaries. He sees someone lurking near houses, as if casing them, and does the proper thing: he calls the police and follows their advice.

Meanwhile another guy in the neighborhood decides to visit a store to buy some snacks. Because it’s raining, he decides to walk under the eaves of the houses, rather than on the sidewalk. He smoked some marijuana, but otherwise he’s just on his way back to where he was staying.

That’s when things fell apart, and there’s no reason for me to speculate on why. One man died, one man survived, due to each having different perceptions of the circumstances. One believed he was preventing a burglary, one believed he was being stalked. The baseline of the story is that both guys misinterpreted the situation, and it resulted in the death of one; the other sustained injuries.

This scenario is not uncommon (and it’s way too common in the streets of Chicago) so why has it come to national prominence? The liberal MainStreamMedia loves to concoct stories about racism because the President of the United States happens to be half-black, and it gives them grist for a story, no matter how implausible the story is.

Trayvon Martin, in case you didn’t notice, is black. Early reports by the MSM painted George Zimmerman as a racist white guy, then as a Jew (in their view even better). When they found out that George Zimmerman was actually of Latino ancestry, they spazzed out. Overnight, Zimmerman became a “White-Hispanic” (as if all Hispanic countries with large white populations are comprised of racists). It’s also telling that MSM stories are about Trayvon and Zimmerman, not Martin and George.

You’ve all seen the ubiquitous side-by side image of Martin and Zimmerman so there’s no point in posting it here.  But then I found this:

Martin Zimmerman White Black2

My first impression of this photoshop was of blatant race-baiting, which it is.  It implies that if Martin were Caucasian and Zimmerman were black, the outcome would be different. Zimmerman would be guilty because the US Criminal Justice System is supposedly inherently racist. It isn’t, but let’s suppose it is.

For argument’s sake, let’s assume that Martin was white and Zimmerman was black. A white 6-foot tall high school football player is spotted acting strangely by a security patrol who happens to be black. The white teenager pummels the black man who draws a weapon. The white man is fatally injured. The teenager’s girlfriend testifies that he described his stalker as,  “a creepyass nigga.”

Guess how the MSM would play that story.

They would play it exactly the same, because liberals WANT racial strife in the USA. After all, Trey could’ve been my son.
