Despite the massive, overwhelming documentation proving that elite groups around the world have been planning the complete annihilation of this constitutional republic for a more than a hundred years, Americans continue to deny, deny, deny. Let me give you this example. It’s an email I received a few days ago regarding a January 7, 2005, column I wrote titled, President Bush supporting global communist domination:

“That is the most absurd statement I have ever heard and you fail to detail just how this is transpiring. Either you are outright ignorant or you are joking. Communism is the exact opposite of what Georgie boy stands for. He is a capitalist and has tried to kill suspected terrorist communist Hugo Chavez. How in hell do you equate Bush with communism? You are too absurd to even bother with!”

I politely directed him to two columns for research: The Proper Role of America’s Military and The Praetorian Guard. Of course, this person never bothered to get the facts from them because he addressed me as Sir in a snit he fired off:

“Sir, I have three graduate degrees, taught history and education courses in colleges and am 67 years old and I have done more research than you can even imagine. I eschew lying television news but you sound like a Fox bred brat. Don’t tell me to do any more research, yours was faulty and at some two bit college no doubt. I am a big ten man. Get lost with your bunk! “

Wow! He’s a big ten man! It is just this level of ignorance and denial that has allowed the destroyers to bring this nation to the brink of ruin and a police state. A closed mind is a dangerous weapon.

Hey Grimes, what’s up dude? by Dr. Jimmy T (Gunny) LaBaume

 We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he today that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother.Shakespeare, Henry IV, Act IV, Scene 3 First published in Nov 2002 Hey Grimes, what’s up? How are things going for you up there in Valhalla? With Memorial Day coming, I thought I’d drop you a line. I don’t talk about it much, but there has not been a single day in over 32 years that I haven’t thought about you.

 I remember the first time we met. It was in Staging Battalion at Camp Pendleton. At the ripe old age of 24, I was a good deal older than average. You’ve heard of the generation gap? Well, I was the gap. I had little in common with the guys of my rank, with whom I was allowed to socialize. But, although you were still very young, you were different–an enthusiastic, bubbling, peached faced kid from Amarillo, TX.

Remember our big plans for me to teach you to ride bulls and bareback horses when we got back to the world? Boy, what a couple of dreamers! When we got in country, you went to 5 th Marines and I went to 2 nd Battalion, 11 th Marines. Since my Battalion and your Regimental Headquarters were both at An Hoa , we had several chances to see each other and renew our friendship. Any time that you were there, you always made a point of finding me, as I did you when I would pass through. I’ll never forget the last time I saw you.

The Most Unnecessary Job in the World

by Laurence M. Vance
by Laurence M. Vance


DIGG THIS

Garbage collector, septic tank cleaner, janitor – the most necessary jobs are often the least glamorous. Some jobs, however, are not only unglamorous; they are completely unnecessary. Marine Colonel Steve Beck has the most unnecessary job in the world. He is a Casualty Assistance Calls Officer. He is the one who comes knocking with a message that no military family wants to hear.

Colonel Beck’s story is told in a just-released book by journalist Jim Sheeler.Final Salute: A Story of Unfinished Lives (Penguin Press, 2008) is a continuation of Sheeler’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Rocky Mountain News series written about his experiences in following Beck over the course of a year on his visits to the families of fallen Marines. Sheeler was recently interviewed about his book on NPR’s Fresh Air.

Beck learned each dead Marine’s name and nickname. He embraced their grieving mothers. He attended the funerals. He shed his own tears when he returned to his family. All after unintentionally serving as the death angel. According to Beck, the families always know why he pays them a visit: “The curtains pull away. They come to the door. And they know. They always know.”

Some of our public officials need a civics lesson, and then to re–apply for the job all over again. The first thing is to understand where they have standing and where they do not have standing.

The Castle Doctrine is making its way through due process now in Ohio, perhaps to be the twenty-first state to adopt it. (For definition, see Internet Search Term Castle Doctrine)

If one believes Law Enforcement’s job is to fight crime by arrest, deterrence, interdiction, administration of justice and by public cooperation, then Command Rank cannot oppose the people. Opposing laws which officially recognize Citizen Authority is to oppose the people they serve; where service has been forgotten and become self-serving into many cities. The idea that police would oppose the Castle Doctrine in protecting their own prestige over safe streets is a nationwide scandal. Their job is to enforce the law, not make it or even pressure it.

I should have seen this coming. I’ve been around the edges of it for years now. After watching the Bush machine slowly grind America into a second-rate debtor nation, I figured we were on our way to becoming Great Britain or France. I even thought – if the Chinese changed their mind and decided to call in our $9 trillion note or trade in Euros instead of dollars – we had a shot at becoming Argentina. So how did I miss that we’re already Germany. I’m not talking about modern, post-Commie, no more east and west, you can get a Mercedes anywhere Germany; I’m referring to blackshirt, goose-stepping, Poland invading nation of yore.

For those of you who are history-challenged, that would be bad old Nazi Germany.

In a stunning warning to all Americans, the non-partisan English First warned fans of national and local conservative talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Dr. James Dobson, Laurie Roth and other conservative talk shows that a proposed Federal Communications Commission regulation could very well drive their favorite programs off the air.

“This is serious business! The FCC that is part of the executive branch — in essence — is taking control of the airwaves, rather than allowing the US Congress and Senate to propose legislation, openly debate that legislation and then vote on it. One can compare what’s being done in the name of fairness with Stalinism,” warns conservative political strategist Mike Baker.

“If you look at who is pushing this so-called Fairness Doctrine, most likely you’ll find center-left advocates in politics, government, academia, and the press,” adds Baker.

Lessons from Childhood

Have you ever argued with your girlfriend or wife and realized — after hearing her words and voice tonality, viewing her facial expressions and body language, weighing the facts of the situation, and objectively assessing your personal behavior — that she was fighting not with you but with her father, mother, siblings, ex-boyfriends, or ex-husbands?

Of course you have, and I’ll bet it was recently. She hurled phrases, displayed fears, and used battle tactics that seemed incongruous with the matter at hand and inappropriate for you. Striking a chord yet? Congratulations! You know how to spot her emotional baggage. Now the question is, will that baggage ruin your journey?

Hillary’s RFK Comment Wishful Thinking?

May 25, 2008 Leave a comment

GyG:
I have never liked the Klintons at all. But I have always tended to lean toward underdogs in general. I never did quite figure out just which one, if anyone, of the Klintons might be the lesser of evils.

In this case, especially, it may well be a case where her fall from front runner to underdog is likely no coincidence at all.

She obviously was very likely to beat the dogcrap outta McStrangelove come November–could it be that that was unacceptable to someone/something? Then, speaking of coincidences, Obama suddenly appears on the scene, out of nowhere. Clearly, the “messiah” would instantly be recognized immediately by millions of  potentail voters, especially those young potential voters trained, conditioned, indoctrinated, etc. in the marxist gubmint schools of our former Republic.

These are not my ideas, btw, I have been reading  all this stuff wholly and/or in part by others for months now. Of course, this coincidence of her falling from grace and having someone at the same time standing ready in the wings, may have been egged on a lot by….let’s see….who could that be now???–aha, I got it! The msm could have a lotta influence in something like this maybe. Could that be? Perhaps. Why not, anything can happen, right?

As for Hillary’s RFK remark that’s causing the brouhaha right now, that’s really nothing to get excited over. I have also read such things earlier this year about, for intance, both Ron Paul, and Obama himself. Nobody seemed to be offended in those similar cases.

 Rumsfeld: “Why Not another 911″

 

 

 
Global Research, May 16, 2008

 

 

 

 

In a newly-released tape of a 2006 neocon luncheon meeting featuring former War Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, attended by ex-military “message force multiplier” propaganda shills Lt. General Michael DeLong, David L. Grange, Donald W. Sheppard, James Marks, Rick Francona, Wayne Downing, Robert H. Scales and others, Rumsfeld declared that the American people lack “the maturity to recognize the seriousness of the ‘threats’” — and need another 9/11.

When DeLong complained about a “lack of sympathetic ears” in Congress, and a lack of interest among the general American public, Rumsfeld responded, “What’s to be done? The correction for that, I suppose, is another attack.”

I sat dumbfounded as I watched U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton defend his prosecution of Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean in a recent interview with CNN’s Lou Dobbs. To just about anyone who knows anything about this case, the prosecution and subsequent imprisonment of these two agents (who were simply attempting to enforce our nation’s immigration and drug laws) is an unfathomable miscarriage of justice. Yet, Sutton has repeatedly (with great smugness and pride, I might add) done everything but brag about putting these two officers in prison.

Condensed by 

Dr. Jimmy T. (Gunny) LaBaume 

Chapter 9: The Great Centralizer: Lincoln’s Economic Legacy

3. Internal Improvements (Again)

When Lincoln was elected in 1860, the constitutions of almost all of the states prohibited subsidies for internal improvements. Furthermore, federal subsidies had never materialized for constitutional reasons either. “Constitutional scruples” had prevented Congress from passing a Pacific Railway Act but Lincoln had very few constitutional scruples. Any he might have had rapidly disintegrated once the Republicans controlled both the Senate and the White House.

By mid-1862 the military situation was desperate. Nevertheless, the Lincoln administration diverted millions of dollars to the construction of a railroad in California. The major opposition to such subsidies had previously come from Southerners. But, since Southerners were no longer present, nothing was to stop the adoption of the second plank of the American System—massive subsidies for corporations. So, Congress passed the Pacific Railway Act in June of 1862.

A Christian View of Armed Warfare

by William E. Paul
by William E. Paul


DIGG THIS

The following excerpts are from the newly reprinted 116-page book, A Christian View of Armed Warfare, by William E. Paul. The first selection is chapter 3, “A Christian and Evildoers,” from part I, “New Testament Teaching on Christians Participating in War.” The second selection is chapter 8, “But Killing in War Is Done As an Agent of the Government and Not As a Personal Act,” from part II, “Common Objections to Christians Not Participating in War.” The book is available from Vance Publications.

A Christian and Evildoers

One of the most frequent arguments used in an attempt to justify a Christian waging war is that “Evildoers must be stopped in their aggressive efforts to overrun the world.” Nearly every generation has had its Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Kaiser Wilhelm, Lenin, Hitler, Mussolini or Stalin. Certainly the atrocities perpetrated upon mankind by dictators who have aspired to world rule are to be deplored. Evil-doing of all kinds must be hated by Bible-believing Christians who desire to have the mind of Christ. It is said of Jesus, “Thou hast loved righteousness and hated iniquity” (Hebrews 1:9).

But in the process of hating evil Christians are not permitted to despise the evildoer also. This attitude is supremely exemplified in the act of God commending His “own love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). While man was busily engaged in the pursuit of evil, God was pursuing a course designed to effect man’s eternal good. God loves sinners “even when we were dead through our trespasses” (Ephesians 2:4–5) and yet God says of evil, “all these are the things I hate” (Zechariah 8:17). Although God hates all evil, He loves the evildoer and has done only good to him, “for he is kind toward the unthankful and evil” (Luke 6:35).

A Cooling World

Global warming has ceased. In 2005, it was .45 degrees centigrade above the 1961-1990 global average temperature. In 2006, it dropped to .42 centigrade, and in 2007, to .41 centigrade.

That’s one of many facts to be gleaned from an intelligent and calm book, An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming, by Lord Nigel Lawson, a British politician and former journalist.

It is not a book to be read on a warm afternoon after a heavy lunch. It will put you to sleep. That is to say it is not written in the style of melodramatic yellow journalism or TV sensationalism. It is written with an emphasis on facts and on logic.

Richard S. Lindzen, Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, says of the book: “This brief and elegant book treats the science of global warming seriously, but convincingly shows that whatever view one has of the science, almost all proposed approaches to the putative problem are intellectually deficient, economically absurd and harmful, and morally misdirected at best. Lawson’s An Appeal to Reason is an appeal that must be heeded if one is to truly avoid great harm to man and the planet.”

Lawson sums up his book with this warning: “So the new religion of global warming, however appealing it may be to the politicians, is not as harmless as it may appear at first sight. Indeed the more one examines it the more it resembles a ‘Da Vinci Code’ of environmentalism. It is a great story and phenomenal best-seller. It contains a grain of truth – and a mountain of nonsense. And that nonsense could be very damaging indeed. We appear to have entered a new age of unreason which threatens to be as economically harmful as it is profoundly disquieting. It is from this, above all, that we really do need to save the planet.”

The Conservative Movement: From Failure to Threat

by Paul Craig Roberts
by Paul Craig Roberts


DIGG THIS

UC Berkeley tenured law professor John Yoo epitomizes the failure of the conservative movement in America. Known as “the torture professor,” Yoo penned the Department of Justice (sic) memos that gave a blank check to sadistic Americans to torture detainees at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. The human rights violations that John Yoo sanctioned destroyed America’s reputation and exposed the Bush Regime as more inhumane than the Muslim terrorists. The acts that Yoo justified are felonies under US law and war crimes under the Nuremberg standard.

Yoo’s torture memos are so devoid of legal basis that his close friend and fellow conservative member of the Federalist Society, Jack Goldsmith, rescinded the memos when he was appointed head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel.

Yoo’s extremely shoddy legal work and the fervor with which he served the evil intentions of the Bush Regime have led to calls from distinguished legal scholars for Yoo’s dismissal from Berkeley’s Boalt Hall.

The web loves nothing more than a good brawl, so people often write me to ask me to respond to a critic of LRC or the Mises Institute. There’s certainly no shortage of them, and they come from the left, the right, and everything in between. My first thought on the request is that the archive speaks for itself, and a response would amount to little more than reprinting. And yet the criticisms in themselves are interesting because often they come from people who liked one thing we said and then felt betrayed by another thing we said, so we get praise for the first thing and attacked for the second thing.

There is a response to make that covers all these critics but first let me give you a better feel for what I’m talking about. Let’s say that we run an article exposing how the corporate elites are working in league with the government to make profits from war and destruction. The left cheers. The next day we attack the idea of a new tax on corporations or some federal antitrust action, and come to the defense of big business. The left screams betrayal and announces that our side of the debate has sold out.

In a recent LRC article, Joe Sobran anticipates next year‘s Lincoln bicentennial celebration with apprehension. Like many of us, Sobran knows that the eulogizing of Honest Abe will draw heavily on the Lincoln mythology so any flaws that Lincoln might have exhibited will not see the light of day. Public school students will be treated to the standard Lincoln repertoire and politicians will make glowing tributes to the man in which they will imply some sort of mystical connection between themselves and Honest Abe. We can resign ourselves to a year-long, overblown, worshipful adoration of Abraham Lincoln.

Judging from our reaction to the terror attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, which claimed 3,000 lives, I suspect we would go nuts. Back in 2001, it became Terror Week on television, so that we got to see the damage endless numbers of times. Politicians were scrambling for flag pins and trying to remember the words of the national anthem. Hardly a family pet could be buried without the TV cameras and the mayor showing up.

This week, as the American economy continued to suffer the effects of big government, the House attempted to pass two multibillion-dollar “emergency” spending bills, one for continued spending on the war in Iraq, and one increasing spending on domestic and international welfare programs. The plan was to pass these two bills and then send them to the president as one package. Even though the House failed to pass the war-spending bill, opponents of the war should not be fooled into believing this vote signals a long-term change in policy. At the end of the day, those favoring continued military occupation of Iraq will receive every penny they are requesting and more as long as they agree to dramatically increase domestic and international welfare spending as well.

In Hackworth’s world, there were two types of people – “studs” and “perfumed princes….”


http://www.hackworth.com/

Washington, D.C., May 5, 2005 – Col. David H. Hackworth, the United States Army’s legendary, highly decorated guerrilla fighter and lifelong champion of the doughboy and dogface, ground-pounder and grunt, died Wednesday in Mexico. He was 74 years old. The cause of death was a form of cancer now appearing with increasing frequency among Vietnam veterans exposed to the defoliants called Agents Orange and Blue.

Col. Hackworth spent more than half a century on the country’s hottest battlefields, first as a soldier, then as a writer, war correspondent and sharp-eyed critic of the Military-Industrial Complex and ticket-punching generals he dismissed as “Perfumed Princes.”

Abstract: North’s career shows an undeniable streak of deceit and misuse of the trust of colleagues and the American public. His most significant betrayal was engineering the trade of arms to Iran for US hostages. North would become a threat if he were to succeed in a bid for the Senate.

LET ME TRY to describe Oliver North in a few fast bursts. He’s a jackass. He is so preposterous that there is a temptation to laugh at him. He’s smarmy, a flatter, a brownnoser. He’s also a twisted impostor, a drugstore Marine with an apparent compulsion to bullshit just about all the time. But while he tries to fool people with his fantasies, he is also very easy to fool. He boasts that he was an can-do guy when he was in the White House, but the record spells no-can-do. North did terible damage to the U.S. until he was caught. One thread runs through his performance–getting conned. The Iranians conned him, the contras conned him, the crooked arms dealers conned him and even Manuel Antonio Noriega conned him.

“We should remember that Iran, like Iraq, is a third-world nation without a significant military. Nothing in history hints that she is likely to invade a neighboring country, let alone do anything to America or Israel. I’m concerned, however, that a contrived Gulf of Tonkin-type incident may occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran. … Mr. Speaker, let’s hope I’m wrong about this one.” —Rep. Ron Paul speech to US House, Jan.1, 2007
http://www.house.gov/paul/congrec/congrec2007/cr011107.htm

I have to hand it to Dr. Paul’s hard-core “Paulestinian” adherents, at least half of whom, by my rough estimate, understand the ways of the wicked world much better than the misled masses following the other presidential candidates. Among them it’s common knowledge that a “false flag” attack is one carried out against the people of a nation by their own government, then blamed on a bogeyman. Of course, as Dr. Paul noted above, there are variations of the false flag technique—like the faked Gulf of Tonkin attack that the Johnson administration used to press the nation into the Vietnam War.

BUTLER, Mo. – A Missouri car dealership is triggering interest by offering customers free guns or gasoline with any purchase, and despite the skyrocketing price of fuel, patrons are going for the guns.

 

“We are aware of the gasoline and crime problem in America,” states an ad on the website of Max Motors. It goes on to note it “wants to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.”

McCain restricts access to medical records


May 22, 2008


By Joseph Curl – As Americans kick off the first holiday weekend of the summer Friday, Sen. John McCain will release 400 pages of his medical records to a handpicked group of reporters who can neither photocopy nor keep the documents, illustrating the sensitivity the campaign places on the 71-year-old candidate’s age and health.

For more than a year, the four-term senator has repeatedly promised to release his recent medical records, but has not yet done so.

Cornering COINTELPRO

Capt. Eric H. May
Military Analysis

Introduction

There is an infowar against the most effective figures in the 9/11 truth movement, often by the most unscrupulous and dangerous government-sanctioned characters. A pair of Army military intelligence veterans have cooperated to sniff out an attempt by a COINTELPRO (counter-intelligence program) operator to target unsuspecting journalist Stephen Webster, and to use him as a “useful idiot” for passing along disinformation.
In a friendly message to Captain Eric H. May, SFC Donald Buswell, “The 9/11 NCO,” sounded the alert that a shady character named Tim White was contacting journalists with smear tactics. SFC Buswell was recently featured in a blockbuster article by Webster in The Lone Star Iconoclast:

Free at Last! Army Intelligence Analyst Buswell,
“the 9/11 NCO” Speaks Out

http://www.lonestaricon.com/absolutenm/anmviewer.asp?a=2792&z=247

SFC Buswell became Captain May co-author in the recent “Mayday Alert” articles that became the most successful 9/11 truth movement warning ever about the dangers of Bush administration “anti-terror” drills. They were joined by two other co-authors: Dr. Jim Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth; and Major William B. Fox, publisher of America First Books. Both Dr. Fetzer and Major Fox are veteran Marine Corps officers.

 Why Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican

Posted on Friday, May 23, 2008 20:04:36 by kingattax

It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. In that era, almost all black Americans were Republicans. Why? From its founding in 1854 as the anti-slavery party until today, the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks. And as one pundit so succinctly stated, the Democrat Party is as it always has been, the party of the four S’s: Slavery, Secession, Segregation and now Socialism.

Any who have studied the history of the War of Northern Aggression has, no doubt, heard of the infamous Dahlgren Papers. The Dahlgren Papers are a set of orders found on the body of Colonel Ulric Dahlgren after he was killed in Judson (Kill-Cavalry) Kilpatrick’s bungled attempt at a raid on Richmond, Virginia in 1864, supposedly to attempt to free federal prisoners of war. Writer Joseph Galloway labeled Kilpatrick’s raid “poorly planned and badly executed,” and said it was “A Moe, Larry, and Curly kind of caper.”

Hillary Plays the Crazy Card

Establishment hack Joe Conason of the “New York Observer” is not going to go out of his way to tar any one of the three chosen neo-con puppets in this Presidential race of 2008.

So when he quotes Hillary as saying, “”I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president, we will attack Iran. And I want them to understand that. …” – then we can bet she said it. She probably didn’t mean it exactly that way, and you can see the whole article here:

Twilight of the goddesses – The Ragnarok of Feminism

Feminism has been dying the death of a sick old woman.  Shackled to the political party that opposed women’s suffrage, just as blacks are manacled to the political party of the Ku Klux Klan, both captives levied en masse as foot soldiers to fight the political party of Susan B. Anthony and of Abraham Lincoln, the party of all the original feminists and all the original abolitionists, feminists, like civil rights straw bosses, long ago sold their political soul.  So, when Hillary Clinton is pilloried by the radical Left, her protests of victimhood produce no feminist outrage, because feminists cannot afford to speak too loudly against their Leftist masters.  They know their place.

The Lost Tribes of Israel

by Patrick J. Buchanan
P
osted 05/16/2008 ET

As Israel enters its 61st year, Israelis may look back with pride. Yet, the realists among them must also look forward with foreboding.

Israel is a modern democracy with the highest standard of living in the Middle East. In the high-tech industries of the future, she is in the first rank. From a nation of fewer than a million in 1948, Israel’s population has grown to 7 million. In seven wars — the 1948 War of Independence, the Sinai invasion of 1956, the Six-Day War of 1967, the Yom Kippur War of 1973, and the Lebanon wars of 1982 and 2006 — Israel has prevailed, though some of these wars were, as Wellington said of Waterloo, “a damn near-run thing.”

HOW HILLARY CAN STILL WIN IT

As Hillary Clinton won a huge victory in West Virginia last Tuesday, the political pundits began to change their tune. Ever since the previous week’s primary returns, in which Hillary lost big to Barack Obama in North Carolina, and barely squeaked by with a win in Indiana, the assumption was that the race was over, and it was just a matter of how she would make her exit. Perhaps she would wait till she could go out on a winning note in West Virginia, suggested NBC’s Andrea Mitchell. Or maybe she would finish out the primaries on June 3, and bow out at that point, for the good of the party, when enough Superdelegates chose Obama to put him over the top.

But it now seems clear that Senator Clinton intends to be in it to the end, and that she has a strategy to take the Democratic presidential nomination away from Obama. This will make for exciting media coverage.

SUPREMES ARROGANCE

NewsWithViews.com

Th’ abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.” –William Shakespeare

It is not the place of the California Supreme Court (or any court) to MAKE law.

The concept of separation of powers is very clearly delineated and establishes three branches of government (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial) each of which has very narrowly defined duties and responsibilities. Regrettably, for too long, territorial imperatives have been breached so often as to become habit if not tradition.

“No deception, no matter how skilled or sophisticated, can hide the devastation caused by the sexual revolution and its radical wing, the gay rights movement. Broken homes, child abuse, abortion and AIDS are the inevitable result of a false view of sexual morality.” –Michael S. Heath

Militant homosexuals are shutting down free speech. They’ve been targeting speakers, workshops, and conferences. Basically any event where a conservative view on homosexuality is presented by a speaker, or discussed/debated during a workshop is fair game. Gritty “gay” radicals are troubled that people will hear the conservative side of the argument that says, “gays can change.” In the last month several news sources reported that some “gays” and lesbians intent on muzzling free speech have started rioting. Once they’ve taken over, “queer activists” march around clapping, screaming, beating on pots and pans and chanting at the top of their lungs, “We’re here, we’re queer. Get used to it!” and “H–l no, we won’t go!”
