Refugee Crisis: Qui Bono?

The government raises taxes to pay for the bombs that create the refugees. The government raises taxes to pay for the humanitarian programs that relocate the refugees. The government raises taxes to fund the police state now necessitated by the clash of cultures.
Don't follow the money. You'll start thinking somebody planned it this way. Only deplorables spin conspiracy theories.

N-Word

George Carlin famously mocked the Seven Dirty Words You Can't Say On Television. Those words, however, merely offended bourgeois sensibilities. Not even the inveterately irreverent Carlin would dare take on The Word That Dare Not Say Its Name. 

I refer, of course, to the dreaded n-word. Even the etymologically unrelated "niggardly" has laid careers to waste and reputations to ruin. (For more on that, see the Wikipedia link.) Some sound waves emanating from vocal cords really are off limits

Does Cheeto Hitler Mean Fascism?

Lincoln suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus. He shut down the courts. He arrested citizens and elected officials without cause. He censored dissenting Northern newspapers.
Lincoln sicced his troops on the Maryland legislature to prevent a vote on secession. He had the mayor and police chief of Baltimore arrested and incarcerated when they resisted orders.
Sherman‘s “March to the Sea” killed 50,000 Southern civilians, including a good number of slaves, purported beneficiaries of Lincoln's "cruel, wicked, and unnecessary war." Those were Ohio Congressman Clement L. Vallandigham's words, for which Lincoln had Vallandigham arrested and deported.
Does the election of the Cheeto Hitler mean that America now embarks on an irreversible path to fascism? If only! That ship has long since sailed. You just haven't been paying attention.

Climate Change and Terrorism

Anybody who denies that terror bombing has everything to do with climate change and nothing to do with Islam is a Bible-thumping, Mohammedan baby-eating, Goat God Pan-killing deplorable who forfeits his right to live in civilized society.

Paying the Secularists' Jizya

Separation of church and state in theory has meant union of aggressive secularism and state in practice. While Christians objecting to the moral relativism of the government schools are free to send their kids elsewhere, they may not forego tribute to the government schools. Secular democrats blandly embrace this arrangement, even as they affect consternation at the jizya imposed by Muslim rulers on their dhimmis.

Good War Gymnastics

"FDR knew about the 'surprise' attack on Pearl Harbor, you know. He let it happen to suck us into World War II."

"Irrelevant. Whether FDR knew about Pearl Harbor or not, Japan fired the first shot. We had every right to shoot back."

"First shot? FDR had already slapped an embargo on Japan. A blockade is an act of war. Pearl Harbor was in retaliation for the blockade."

"FDR only slapped the embargo in response to Japan's Rape of Nanking. You're not condoning Japanese atrocities against the Chinese, are you?"

"Not any more than you're condoning American atrocities against the Filipinos."

"What do you mean?"

"The Rape of Nanking was in response to the pacification of the Philippines."

"Nanking had nothing to do with the Philippines!"

"Nor did FDR's embargo have anything to do with Nanking."

"You hate America!"

"Only the court historians' version of it."

Open Borders and Double Standards

Ethno-religious identity politics for me, not for thee.

"We must protect Israel's borders, even if it means building a wall. Because Holocaust."

"Euro-Christians must accommodate migrating alien hordes. Because Holocaust."

It helps to promote a persecution myth, no?

AWAD - Hilarity

Grievous character flaws must beset the GOP presidential candidate. An ostensibly apolitical site like wordsmith.org would have no cause to anathematize him otherwise. 

Presumably, these have to do with Trump's "racism," which the cognoscenti infer from his advocacy for enhanced national-border controls. Yet Japan, China, United Arab Emirates, Israel, and Singapore all pursue severely restrictive immigration policies. Why does no one call out their leaders as racist?

The deep-thinkers' double standards are mind-boggling. They are also a source of unending hilarity.
