About Me

Principle before party is my belief. Lifelong Democrat, but I have no tolerance for blue dogs, tepid centrists, or weak Democrats that feel apologetic to Republicans. The way to win a political war is to fight the enemy using their tactics against them.

Outside agitators down south? From Mississippi Burning in 1988



Sounds familiar today, doesn't it? Different wording today, but the same racist meaning.

Trump attacks Malala for not deserving NPP because she "got shot in the head"

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump lashed out at Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, responding to criticism from the 18-year-old Pakistani by claiming that “a real hero would have never gotten shot in the first place.”

“I mean, everyone goes on about how, ‘Oh, she’s soooo brave, and so courageous,’ just because she got shot in the face. I mean, how brave do you need to be to get shot in the face? It’s not like she caught the bullet in her teeth – which, by the way, is what I would have done,” Trump, who has levied similar criticism at former prisoner of war Senator John McCain, told The Mideast Beast. “Personally, I prefer teenage education activists who didn’t get shot in the head.”



I know it's satire, but can't you see this asshole saying this.

Phil Ochs' prediction of historical figures and Mohammed Ali will get it too.



And the night comes again to the circle studded sky
The stars settle slowly, in loneliness they lie
'Til the Universe explodes as a falling star is raised
Planets are paralyzed, mountains are amazed
But they all glow brighter from the brilliance of the blaze
With the speed of insanity then He died

In the green fields a turnin', baby is born
His cries crease the wind and mingle with the morn
An assault upon the order, changing of the guard
Chosen for a challenge that is hopelessly hard
And the only single sound is the sighing of the stars
But to the silence of distance they are sworn

So dance, dance, dance
Teach us to be true
Come, dance, dance, dance
'Cause we love you

Images of innocence charge Him go on
But the decadence of destiny is looking for a pawn
To a nightmare of knowledge he opens up the gate
Binding revelation is laid upon His plate
That beneath the greatest love is a hurricane of hate
And God help the critic of the dawn

So he stands on the sea and He shouts to the shore
But the louder that He screams, longer He's ignored
For the wine of oblivion is drunk to the dregs
And the merchants of the masses almost have to be begged
'Til the giant is aware, someone's pulling at His leg
And someone is tapping at the door

To dance, dance, dance
Teach us to be true
Come, dance, dance, dance
'Cause we love you

Then His message gathers meaning and it spreads across the land
The rewarding of His pain is the following of the man
But ignorance is everywhere and people have their way
Success is an enemy to the losers of the day
In the shadows of the churches, who knows what they pray
For blood is the language of the band

The Spanish bulls are beaten, the crowd is soon beguiled
The matador is beautiful, a symphony of style
Excitement is ecstatic, passion places bets
Gracefully He bows to ovations that He gets
But the hands that are applauding are slippery with sweat
And saliva is falling from their smiles

So dance, dance, dance
Teach us to be true
Come, dance, dance, dance
'Cause we love you

Then this overflow of life is crushed into a liar
The Gentle Soul is ripped apart and tossed into the fire
First, a smile of rejection at the nearness of the night
Truth becomes a tragedy limping from the light
All the canons are horrified, they stagger from the sight
As the Cross is trembling with desire

They say they can't believe it, it's a sacrilegious shame
Now, who would want to hurt such a Hero of the game?
But you know I predicted it, I knew He had to fall
How did it happen? I hope His suffering was small
Tell me every detail, I've got to know it all
And do you have a picture of the pain?

So dance, dance, dance
Teach us to be true
Come, dance, dance, dance
'Cause we love you

Time takes her toll and memory fades
But His glory is broken in magic that He made
Reality is ruined, it's the freeing from the fear
Drama is distorted, what they want to hear
Swimming in their sorrow, in the twisting of a tear
As they wait for a new thrill parade

Yes, the eyes of the rebel have been branded by the blind
To the safety of sterility, the threat has been refined
The child was created, to the slaughterhouse he's led
So good to be alive when the eulogy is read
Climax of emotion, the worship of the dead
And the cycle of sacrifice unwinds

So dance, dance, dance
Teach us to be true
Come, dance, dance, dance
'Cause we love you

And the night comes again to the circle studded sky
The stars settle slowly, in loneliness they lie
'Till the universe explodes as a falling star is raised
Planets are paralyzed, mountains are amazed
But they all glow brighter from the brilliance of the blaze
With the speed of insanity then He died

Tell them I'm in the bathroom. He's coming. I'm gonna die': Terrified last text son sent to his mom

Source: UK Daily Mail

A mother has recounted the last text she received from her terrified son after a gunman opened fire inside a Florida nightclub early Sunday

Mina Justice was outside the club trying to contact her 30-year-old son Eddie Justice, who texted her when the shooting happened and asked her to call police.

He told her he ran into a bathroom with other club patrons to hide and then wrote 'he's coming.'

'The next text said: "He has us, and he's in here with us,"' Mina Justice said. 'That was the last conversation.'

Fox host blames Obama for Orlando nightclub shooting before bodies can be recovered

Source: Raw Story

Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested on Sunday that President Barack Obama shared the blame for killings at a gay nightclub in Orlando because his administration had downplayed Islamic terrorism.

While investigators were still recovering 20 or more dead bodies from Pulse Nightclub, Carson spoke to counterterrorism expert Sebastian Gorka.

“All Americans have a role to play,” Gorka warned. “You must be aware you are on the front lines. Be alert and report anything that you see that is suspicious.”

Citing a recent shooting in San Bernardino, Carlson argued that President Obama’s administration had made America less safe by taking a politically correct view of Islamic-inspired terrorism.

Right Wing Gloating As At Least 50 Die In Florida Mass Shooting At Gay Club

Updated: It’s now being reported that least 50 people are dead.

As the nation wakes up to a possible terror attack on an Orlando nightclub that caters to the LGBT community, the right wing wasted no time in both politicizing the tragedy and displaying just how sick and depraved conservatism has become in America.

As of this writing, all we know is that around 50 are dead and over 40 are wounded, making this one of the largest mass shootings in American history. A man walked into the Pulse, a downtown Orlando club, at around 2 a.m. and opened fire with an assault rifle and a handgun and then took hostages. After a shootout with the police, the gunman is dead and as yet unidentified, although the police believe the killer to be an Islamic radical. Despite the carnage and tragic loss of life, conservatives jumped onto twitter to mock the dead and gloat:

These fucking wingnuts are sick beasts
