Campus Free Speech

Political Correctness Prevents Syracuse University from Screening Israeli Film

'I will lose credibility with a number of film and Women/Gender studies colleagues.'

A professor issued an informal invitation to an Israeli film director to screen his new documentary, The Settlers, at Syracuse University—the site of an upcoming conference on "The Place of Religion in Film."

Syracuse's religious studies department cancelled the invitation due to concerns that "the BDS faction on campus will make matters very unpleasant for you and for me if you come." (That's the pro-Palestinian movement, the "Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions" group, for those unfamiliar with the acronym.)

Is there a clearer case of a campus beholden to political correctness than this? Read Syracuse Religion Professor M. Gail Hammer's letter to the filmmaker, Shimon Dotan:

I now am embarrassed to share that my SU colleagues, on hearing about my attempt to secure your presentation, have warned me that the BDS faction on campus will make matters very unpleasant for you and for me if you come. In particular my film colleague in English who granted me affiliated faculty in the film and screen studies program and who supported my proposal to the Humanities Council for this conference told me point blank that if I have not myself seen your film and cannot myself vouch for it to the Council, I will lose credibility with a number of film and Women/Gender studies colleagues. Sadly, I have not had the chance to see your film and can only vouch for it through my friend and through published reviews.

Clearly I am politically naive. I also feel tremendous shame in reneging on a half-offered invitation.

Read the full letter at The Atlantic.

This is cowardice, plain and simple. This is a university caving to a political movement that views free expression—the airing of alternative viewpoints—as a threat. It's especially frustrating that the BDS movement would play the role of muzzler here, given that it is so frequently the target of censorship on campus.

Ironically, just yesterday The New York Times chose to publish Yale University lecturer Jim Sleeper's malicious and patently false tirade against the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, "Political Correctness and Its Real Enemies." Sleeper accused FIRE President Greg Lukianoff of publicizing damaging personal details about the Yale student who screamed at Nicholas Christakis: Lukianoff, of course, did nothing of the sort—and The Times has now been forced to print a retraction. Sleeper's larger point still stands uncorrected: that the true threat to free speech on campus is conservatives, or something.

In truth, students, faculty members, administrators, and protest movements of all ideological stripes have tried to censor their opponents on university campuses. FIRE has consistently defended those whose free speech rights were in jeopardy, regardless of the origin of the speech in question.

In today's campus environment, it's just wrong to pretend that far-left activists on campus—those who desire to punish their critics and use formal, administrative means to deny them a platform—aren't a serious threat to free and open dialogue. Syracuse has provided a timely example of that.

  1. Well, look, Suave merged a new doorway into the faraway catchment of myriad calls and echoes.

  2. Suave the Rob is the beast ninja of superwords and their hardy civilizations punched into the precipices of red giants. Rob the Deadly vaunted word guard. Agile loves this motherfucker for a goddamn svelte stance against the crushing odds.

  3. Notes of the moments collide into the effervescent furnace of libertarian angels brooding, laughing, and rising on the volcanic steam of civilizations slipping into the hells of nowheres.

  4. A sigh is a lofted raindrop on the blink of realization.

  5. I see AC has this thread on lock down.
    Keep on truckin’

    *Raises glass to AC*

  6. Well, it’s time for another letter to my alma mater, which I’m sure will be followed by a response to the effect of “The media is wrong” without an explanation, like the last time.

    1. “It was two goats, not three sheep like the lying media would have you believe!”

  7. Why are we calling this a euphemism like “BDS”? They just hate jews. It’s that simple.

    1. Thank you Playa. Look ’em in the eye and call things what they are.

    2. They just hate jews. It’s that simple.

      Meh. There are plenty of American jews in the BDS movement. Its not inherent anti-Semitic so much as virulent left-wing hate for the existence of Israel. Tho i’m sure there are *also* some jew-haters in the movement as well.

      Israel is just a very-convenient whipping boy for American lefty “internationalists”… in that its a foreign-affairs issue which allows them to vent anti-americanism via a proxy-3rd-party. Israel is basically the “tool of the US”, and everything they do is sort of a case-study in the awfulness of Western-capitalist imperialism oppressing the brown indigenous peoples.

      most of the people i meet who have been associated with the BDS thing are not actually super-interested in the history of the conflict or have any particular stake in the issue; its more of a “low-hanging fruit” kind of international-politics issue to grab on to. “Protesting For Dummies! = MY FIRST OCCUPATION”

      I also know a lot of people who are very strongly connected to the politics of the region (expatriate israelis, children of Palestinian refugees); not one has ever cited the BDS movement as anything that ‘mattered’. Its purely something for college kids to moan about which has little connection to the real world.

      1. American Jews that hate mommy and daddy, but still have a trust fund. It’s like the 1960s, but on a smaller and more laughable scale.

        1. maybe some. there’s a pretty wide spectrum of opinion re: Israel

    3. Exactly.

    4. I refer to them as “Hamassholes”. If they were actually pro-Palestinian, they’d be fighting to free from their goat-fucking dictators.

      -jcr

      1. “If they were actually pro-Palestinian, they’d be fighting to free from their goat-fucking dictators.”

        Don’t you have it backwards? It’s the pro-zionists who benefit from Palestinians fighting Palestinians. Divide and conquer.

        1. Divide & conquer?

          1. Palestinians fighting Palestinians is better than Palestinians fighting Israelis.

    5. BDS sounds like something you want to get rid of. ‘Ask your doctor if Zytoderp is right for you. If your BDS get worse while taking Zytoderp, stop taking Zytoderp immediately and call your doctor’. Common side effects of Zytoderp include….’

      1. “…double standards, hypocrisy, campus disruption, attacks on free speech, and inflamed anti-semitism.”

        1. Wait, that’s symptoms of BDS, sorry.

  8. According to Sleeper: But it isn’t the protests per se that damaged open inquiry and expression, but the frenzied way they have been portrayed by the right.

    Your reaction to my demands for trigger warnings and bully tactics is what is causing all the problems. If you would just do what we ask, there would be no threat to free speech. How hard is this to understand?

  9. “it’s just wrong to pretend that far-left activists on campus?those who desire to punish their critics and use formal, administrative means to deny them a platform?aren’t a serious threat to free and open dialogue”

    It’s wrong to pretend that far-left activists are liberals who treasure tolerance and free and open dialogue. While liberals like yourselves fall over each other tolerating others, trying to engage in open dialogue, the leftists are playing for keeps.

    1. It’s wrong to pretend that far-left activists are liberals who treasure tolerance and free and open dialogue. While liberals like yourselves fall over each other tolerating others, trying to engage in open dialogue, the leftists are playing for keeps.

      Clearer: Liberals are deliberately trying to institute a despotic regime where they’re in charge so you should sink to their level so they can have more examples of ‘right-wing hate’ to point to to justify their authoritarianism.

      1. “Clearer: Liberals are deliberately trying to institute a despotic regime where they’re in charge so you should sink to their level so they can have more examples of ‘right-wing hate’ to point to to justify their authoritarianism.”

        Liberals have been in the driver’s seat for at least a century now.

        1. I don’t know what that has to do with what you originally wrote or what I replied with.

          But its all about #Winning, right? Nothing matters except being in the driver’s seat, right? Because if you’re not in the driver’s seat you’re a loser, right?

          1. Because if you’re not in the driver’s seat you’re a loser, right?

            You’re being driven.

            1. Let me guess – you’re Alt-Right?

  10. Clearly I am politically naive.

    Not to mention spineless and unprincipled.

    1. Yeah, that’s the part that got me. “I didn’t know I was going to catch hell for expressing an unpopular opinion and now that I do know I’m going to make sure I keep my mouth shut.” Profiles in courage right there – always stick a finger in the wind to make sure you’re never going to say anything people might not like hearing.

      1. It’s all a part of the joy of being an ’employee’ – having a boss and all. We can’t all be Uber drivers or food truck operators.

        1. Well, we could. But it would be a very Venezuelan economy.

  11. Is there a clearer case of a campus beholden to political correctness than this?

    Political correctness is just good manners, Robbie.

  12. What the video didn’t show were the hundreds of white students having their first frank conversations about race with minority classmates.

    Yeah.

  13. The reason is that conservatives’ yearning for ordered liberty is being debased not by liberals but by the casino-like financing and predatory lending and marketing of a “dynamic capitalist economy.”

    What the fuck is that even supposed to mean?

    “Oogah boogah! Capitalism bad. Me no like!”

    1. Conservatives oppose usury and a casino-like system of financing. They traditionally have thought that hard work deserves to be rewarded.

      1. They traditionally have thought that hard work deserves to be rewarded.

        Only the stupid ones. Conservatives have traditionally thought that hard work was good for character but the material rewards are reserved for those who can create *value* – no matter how much or how little effort that takes.

        Oh, and you want to see usury and a casino-like system of financing – check out all those bastions of prosperity calling themselves ‘socialist nations’.

        1. “but the material rewards are reserved for those who can create *value* – no matter how much or how little effort that takes.”

          Casinos aren’t really about creating value. They simply redistribute it according to Lady Luck. (or who’s got the biggest bank roll)

          ” check out all those bastions of prosperity calling themselves ‘socialist nations’.”

          Why bother? Those that call themselves Capitalist are every bit as socialist.

          1. I would say that the people who go to casinos and part with their money consider the casinos to be creating value.

            And yep, the United States is a socialist as Canada, France, Germany, Cuba, China, North Korea?

            1. “And yep, the United States is a socialist…”

              If you want to put it that way, fine with me. Which state can rival the US when it comes to criminalizing and imprisoning her own people? Who can rival the US public debt or public spending on the military?

  14. it [the “BDS movement”] is so frequently the target of censorship on campus

    There’s a reason this was newsworthy.

  15. Limit? I don’t understand?

    http://hotair.com/archives/201…..-refugees/

    1. They’re all of the sudden racists?

  16. If you drive screws laced with moons into the fabric of space time purple buttons pop out with micro worlds seeded on their wings.

    1. Torx screws will kill us all. It is known.

      1. Subaru thibks it amusing to put a T70 on the MTF/front differential plug. Rear differential? 13 mm square plug that a 1/2-inch breaker bar (or ratchet) fits in. Try finding a T70 torx bit. It would have been easier to have tracked down DB Cooper.

  17. Had no idea Nightline was still on the air. This piece they did on Milo had me shaking my head. The virtue signalling isn’t exactly subtle, to put it mildly.

    1. Age your act, not your shoe size, young man.

      1. Thanks Yoduh.

        1. Thought he was doing Ren.

        2. You don’t have to watch Dynasty to have an attitude.

    2. Terry Moran really went to bat for those helpless celebrities, didn’t he?

  18. I have very little respect for the Israeli government. They are the same kind of self-selected elites as in any other government, more interested in temporary power than any long lasting peace, and keeping things with the Palestinians and Arabs suits them just fine, as long as Uncle Sugar is backing them up.

    But the Palestinians and Arabs get negative respect from me. Their interest in maintain tense relations with Israel is even worse, their fear of justice, democracy, freedom, and peace is even worse.

    (And it gobsmacked me that Bush I would rescue the Saudis, who were and are far worse than Saddam, and arguably started the whole Al Qaeda and ISIS mess.)

    Fuck BDS. Anyone who thinks Palestinians are heroes is stupider than those who think the Israeli government is populated with heroes.

    1. “But the Palestinians and Arabs get negative respect from me.”

      As long as you insist on judging occupiers and occupied, thief and victim, by the same standards, you probably will continue to denigrate the Palestinians.

      1. Anyone who thinks Palestinians are heroes is stupider than those who think the Israeli government is populated with heroes.

        I give you mtrueman.

        1. Thanks for your tolerance and your willingness to engage.

          1. Pull my finger.

            1. Zionists are too busy trying to impress North American taxpayers with their tolerance and democracy to pull off anything remotely similar to the extermination of North America’s Native population.

      2. That’s funny – I imagine that you hate every nation then. After all, pretty much every spot in the world has changed hands, usually violently, multiple times.

        1. Try and explain that to people.

          Europe is but a clash of civilizations eventually becoming nation-states some doing so earlier (England, France, Spain) and others (interestingly) later (Germany and Italy).

          Or. Better yet. Not all the Native tribes who were already established in North America weren’t always so peaceful usually warring with one another. Europeans came and crashed the party – and, as fate had it, prevailed.

          History.

          It’s a bitch sometimes.

          1. “Or. Better yet. Not all the Native tribes who were already established in North America weren’t always so peaceful usually warring with one another. Europeans came and crashed the party – and, as fate had it, prevailed.”

            Zionists are too busy trying to impress North American taxpayers with their tolerance and democracy to pull off anything remotely similar to the extermination of North America’s Native population.

            1. “North American taxpayers”

              Sneaky sneaky.

              You don’t live in the US. How much does Mexico contribute to Israel?

              Aaaand… How much have Jews contributed to Mexico? uh huh.

              1. “How much have Jews contributed to Mexico?”

                Quite a bit, if you’re not familiar with Spain’s expulsion of Jews etc and Jews contribute to Mexico today.

                You see, you conflate Jews with Israel. This part of Zionism really rubs me the wrong way.

                1. If its not about the Juice then what’s your beef with Israel? Cuba oppresses its people more than the Israeli’s oppress the Palestinians. You might not accept that so, how about how the North Korean Government, the Chinese government?

                  Or is it OK for them because the oppressors are nominally the same ethnicity as the oppressed?

                  If you’re going to complain about shitty nations being shitty to the people in that nation, Israel is *faaaaaaaaaaaar* from top of the list or being the hill you should want to die on.

                  1. ” what’s your beef with Israel?”

                    Two words, Jewish state.

                    1. So, you’re a Jew-hating-Trumpkin

                    2. “So, you’re a Jew-hating-Trumpkin”

                      Enough about this Israel business. Let’s talk about me.

                    3. Yes, let’s not talk about what this was all about – gutless Syracuse & the pussies who run it.

                      Let’s ban a documentary to feel morally superior & not the cunt-face cowards that we really are.

                    4. “gutless Syracuse & the pussies who run it.”

                      You’re free to transfer to a more guttier school if that’s what you want.

        2. “After all, pretty much every spot in the world has changed hands, usually violently, multiple times.”

          Too little, too late. That’s the problem with the Zionists. Had they stolen the land and exterminated the local populace back in the 19th century, we wouldn’t be having this discussion. Times change and attempting the same in the 21st century is going to lead to negative.

          “That’s funny – I imagine that you hate every nation then.”

          I have no sympathy for exclusivist national projects.

          1. I have no sympathy for exclusivist national projects.

            You mean like Palestinians? Arabs and Muslims in general? The ones who consider it a capital sin to convert out of Islam but not into it?

            1. “You mean like Palestinians?”

              Palestinians are people. Zionism is an exclusivist national project.

              1. You’re delusional.

              2. Funny, Jews are people. And Palestine is trying to get its own exclusivist national project off the ground.

                1. Zionists already have one. I oppose it.

                  1. Okay, pig.

                    1. Enough about me. Let’s talk about animals!

          2. As long as you insist on judging occupiers and occupied, thief and victim, by the same standards, you probably will continue to denigrate the Palestinians.

            Ah, so Israelis are thieves and Palestinians victims because they did their thievery recently. So you get to smugly lecture a people for their actions while refusing to hold any other people to the same standard.

            A people who just happen to be Jews.

            See, when people say there’s anti-Semitism in anti-Israel arguments, it’s because of rhetorical shit like this.

            1. “Ah, so Israelis are thieves and Palestinians victims because they did their thievery recently.”

              And their continuing refusal to do right by their victims. As I mentioned, stealing this land and cleansing it of the local populace recently as opposed to a century ago was their biggest mistake.

              1. “Durr, I refuse to hold anyone else to the standards I hold the Israelis, because time! It’s almost like my moralizing is complete bullshit.”

                1. Tell you what mtrueman, you tell me where you live, and I’ll tell you what you can do to do right to your victims.

                  1. “Tell you what mtrueman, you tell me where you live, and I’ll tell you what you can do to do right to your victims.”

                    Be glad to. But first you tell me where my victims live.

                    1. Right next door, I’d say.

                2. “Durr, I refuse to hold anyone else to the standards I hold the Israelis, because time! ”

                  It’s the cruelest law in the universe: times change. Adapt or die.

              2. The simple fact is that we hung a bunch of motherfuckers at Nuremberg and in Japan for doing exactly what the Israeli government did: that is to start a War of Aggression (The Six Day War) and keep the land for themselves. You cannot do that and its blatantly hypocritical for the Israeli government to act like its the victim in all this going on.

                As for BDS, they’re just being stupid. Fuck, let the people come speak and hold your protest. Shutting people out of campus doesn’t do anything but make your movement look like a bunch of pussies that cannot handle other people’s opinions.

                1. The simple fact is that we hung a bunch of motherfuckers at Nuremberg and in Japan for doing exactly what the Israeli government did: that is to start a War of Aggression (The Six Day War) and keep the land for themselves. You cannot do that and its blatantly hypocritical for the Israeli government to act like its the victim in all this going on.

                  Wow, what a wonderfully easy way to make Israel out to be the aggressor, completely ignoring the the mobilization of Arabic forces on the border, the long term results of Israel’s ‘War of Aggression’ (yep, they’re holding onto that Sinai peninsula to this day), twenty years of history before that, and the War of Aggression that actually kicked off the conflict in the first place (hint: Israel didn’t start that one).

                  1. Yea, cause 2 fucking divisions moving into the Sinai was TOTALLY going to wipe out Israel. And yes, lets talk about the ’48 war too. The Israeli’s started that one, or did you forget that they basically said “We’re a State!” and proceeded to dispossess more than 3/4 of a million Palestinian Arabs of their land?

                    Seriously, go back to Breitbart or whatever Trumptard website you crawled out from under…

                    1. The Israeli’s started that one, or did you forget that they basically said “We’re a State!” and proceeded to dispossess more than 3/4 of a million Palestinian Arabs of their land?

                      And how do you feel about the nation known as Jordan?

                      I’m sure you hate it with the same virulence you display for Israel, right?

                2. I’m going to put this in the dumbfuck file.

                3. Well, except – as mtrueman would say – that was a different time. Nations were allowed to get away with annexation by force back then.

                  Look at the Soviet Union, for example. Or the Korean War. Indo-Pakistani War, Arab-Israeli War, Cuban Revolution, etc.

                  All attempts – successful or otherwise – at annexing someone else’s nation (or at least part of it).

                4. Egypt started the war by blocking the entrance to the Gulf of Aqaba.

              3. “Cleansing it of the local populace.”

                Interesting. Considering that region of the world has experienced population growth greater than just about every other part of the entire world.

                Care for a dictionary?

                1. Care to understand the difference between Immigration and Baby Booms?

                  1. Considering how the Palestinian territories have seen the population explode due to both of those things, I fail to see whatever point it is you believe you’ve made.

                2. Call it population transfer if it pleases you. The kind of stuff Joe Stalin got up to a few decades earlier.

                  1. And the near million Jews forced from their homes in countries like Iraq and Syria?

                    It goes both ways. Yet people who make the arguments you’re making never acknowledge that. Then claim to stand on the moral high ground.

                    The hypocrisy is blinding.

                    1. “And the near million Jews forced from their homes in countries like Iraq and Syria?”

                      How about every corner of the Middle East. I was reading about a city in Saudi Arabia near the border with Yemen which incidentally the Houthi rebels are now threatening. This city had been home to Jews for thousands of years. Come 1948, the whole lot of them are packed off to Israel. An irreparable loss to the city’s culture. It’s no picnic either for the people who’ve been dispossessed of everything and turned into pawns by politicians. Still these Jews have capitulated and learn to swallow their losses. That’s something that can’t be said of the Palestinians.

                    2. And if the Palestinians truly do want to live peacefully, they’ll have to learn to accept the fact that history can’t be changed and they need to move forward.

                      As of right now, this doesn’t seem likely to happen anytime soon. What with their two separate unelected “governments” neither of which have any interest in actually sitting down at the negotiating table.

                      Although I read recently that they are allegedly going to have an election in the West Bank for the first time in a decade. Progress? We’ll see. I expect I’ll die before I see any peace reached.

                    3. You fucking asshole, Israel is putting up ILLEGAL SETTLEMENTS at this very moment! How can the Palestinians “move forward” if their goddamn land is being seized to this day? The fucking Israelis signed a number of peace treaties that said they would withdraw from the occupied territories but have refused to do so.

                    4. Like how they refused to pull out of Gaza in 2005 when the military had to pull unwilling Israeli’s from their homes by force?

                      Oh wait. That actually happened.

                      Somebody here definitely is the asshole.

                    5. Wow, one data point and you’re claiming victory. Again, we hung assholes at Nuremberg for what those citizens and their political masters did in Gaza.

                    6. And there it is. Comparing the Jews to the Nazis.

                      Congratulations, you’re going to burn in hell.

                      Happy Labor Day you faggot.

                    7. The fucking Israelis signed a number of peace treaties that said

                      Did these “peace treaties” contain any stipulations for the counterparty?

                    8. Since today is the 40th anniversary of Israeli athletes being slaughtered in Munich by the PLO, your bitchfest is pure Alt-Right

                    9. “As of right now, this doesn’t seem likely to happen anytime soon. What with their two separate unelected “governments” neither of which have any interest in actually sitting down at the negotiating table.”

                      A divided and weakened occupied people would be crazy to sit down to negotiate. You negotiate from a position of strength. That’s when you’re more likely to get what you want. They see international support for Israel waning. If they can hold fast long enough, they’ll come to the table if they see some benefit.

                      “Although I read recently that they are allegedly going to have an election in the West Bank for the first time in a decade. Progress? ”

                      More likely a sham. But let’s not underestimate the possibilities. Mustn’t be too cynical.

              4. Except, well – Roger Williams

          3. So, if they had not been *nice* and actually acted like the stereotypes of Jews – that would be OK. But because they waffled they the most horrible oppressors in the world.

            Except that if they started a progrom *now* you’d just bitch more about how the Israelis were perfidious.

            1. I don’t support the Israeli zionist project. Isn’t that clear by now?

              1. We got ourselves an Alt-Righter, folks! Ding-ding-ding!

      3. I’d have a lot more sympathy for Palestinians whose land was stolen by Israelis if the Palestinians hadn’t been stealing each others land for so long, and if they didn’t have treat non-Muslim non-Arabs so abominably. When they can start acting like civilized people and start acting in their own best interests, I will have some respect for them. When they stop denying the Holocaust and admit that the Jews came from the same area they claim, I will have more respect for them.

        Contrast them with how Jews have reacted to millenia of pogroms. They bounce back, move on, get going again. Even Jews in the Nazi concentration camps didn’t act like such whiny self-pitying victims as the Palestinians do in the camps they themselves control. If they invested half as much energy in bettering their condition as they do in launching home-built rockets at civilians, they’d already be ahead of the game.

        1. Jews have been living in places like Haifa and Jerusalem for thousands of years.

          “If they invested half as much energy in bettering their condition as they do in launching home-built rockets at civilians, they’d already be ahead of the game.”

          If you have a better plan than capitulation, I’d like to hear it.

          1. Did you have a point, other than making an ass of yourself?

                1. Jews retired in Florida?

                  Way to reinforce the stereotype.

            1. “Did you have a point”

              I’d like to hear how the Palestinians can better their conditions without giving up on the claims they’ve held since 48.

              1. I’d like to hear how the Palestinians can better their conditions without giving up on the claims they’ve held since 48.

                You already know the answer to that. Stop sealioning.

                1. “You already know the answer to that.”

                  It’s still up in the air as far as I can tell.

                  1. Can you give us an hour to eat breakfast at least, Sealion?

                  2. Stop trying to blow shit up.

                    There are actually accredited medical schools in the Palestinian territories. You can be born in a refugee camp, go to medical school, and actually get a license to practice in the United States.

                    All you have to do is not blow up Jews. Is it that hard?

                    1. been there, done that. It doesn’t work. It’s Palestinian willingness to resort to violence that has earned it whatever respect it has – a certain standing in the UN for example, skads of $US in aid to PLA etc. Unless they’ve got something else up their sleeves, renouncing violence is tantamount to capitulation. Besides occupied people should kill their occupiers from time to time. If only for the morality of it all.

                    2. Palestinian willingness to resort to violence that has earned it whatever respect

                      I guess this “respect” is better than not subjecting your children to a terrorist war for 50+ years.

                      Can you eat respect? I forget.

                    3. “I guess this “respect” is better than not subjecting your children to a terrorist war for 50+ years.”

                      If American Indians had had their act together they could have had the whites (and blacks) on their knees after 50 years of terrorist war. And the Palestinians haven’t given up yet. Terror pays. Wasn’t it Reagan who finally capitulated to PLO demands for a seat at the negotiating table with Israel and US etc for their regional confabs. It was only after terror attacks against American targets.

                      Violence is the only language that powerful states understand. They respect it, respond to it. If the Palestinians aren’t willing to blow shit up, the Americans and the Israelis will simply ignore them. The only time the Israelis sit down together with Hamas is when they’re being rocketed. They iron out a cease-fire that usually holds for a while.

                    4. Violence is the only language that powerful states understand.

                      How do you suppose the non-political actors feel about living through the 50 years of war? You know, the people less concerned about how “respected” the head of Hamas is and more concerned about the material wellbeing of their children?

                      A hint may be found in the Palestinian diaspora

                    5. “How do you suppose the non-political actors feel about living through the 50 years of war?”

                      They can be proud of a tradition of resistance.

                    6. They can be proud of a tradition of resistance.

                      Will their pride bring their children back to life, or give them an education?

                      You seem to view the goals of Hamas/PLO and the Palestinian people as identical. Does this match your experience of other countries? Even in countries where the government is democratically elected, there are significant minorities who disagree with the government policy.

                      Is the cost of 50 years of war to these people worth the gains you have so far described as “pride” and “respect”?

                    7. “You seem to view the goals of Hamas/PLO and the Palestinian people as identical. ”

                      I never meant to give that impression. The leadership is divided. As for other countries, I don’t see the relevance.

                      “Is the cost of 50 years of war to these people worth the gains you have so far described as “pride” and “respect”?”

                      First they deny your existence. Then they respect you. Then you win.

                    8. First they deny your existence. Then they respect you. Then you win.

                      You should let the people who are currently suffering 50 years of war that they are winning. I’m sure they’d love to hear about it from you.

                      Why not head over there and kibbutz with them and let them know how much you respect their endless, unnecessary suffering?

                    9. You don’t think their land and self determination is worth suffering for? Why don’t you head over there and tell them. It’s pointless telling me.

              2. So, you don’t hate a Palestinian State, or an Islamic State.

                You hate a Jewish State.

                It’s not two words you hate. It’s one. (starts with a J)

                1. “It’s not two words you hate.”

                  Let me repeat. It’s exclusive national projects I hate. Such as Zionism. If Zionism is replete with Jews, that’s no fault of mine.

                  1. It’s exclusive national projects I hate. Such as Zionism.

                    So you hate the proposed Palestinian Islamic state, too? Because they plan to have an exclusive state with no, for example, Jews in it, last time I checked.

                    1. “So you hate the proposed Palestinian Islamic state, too? ”

                      Sure, and I’ll hate it even more if becomes anything more than sandcastles in the air. Will you hate it or feel obliged to support it out of some misguided wooly-headed attempt to be fair and tolerant?

              3. How about you go fuck yourself?

      4. As long as you insist on judging occupiers and occupied, thief and victim, by the same standards

        Yeah it’s terrible when you apply the same standards to everyone. Much better to decide whom to justify and whom to exorcise for the same behavior.

        1. “Yeah it’s terrible when you apply the same standards to everyone. ”

          To do that you’d have to deny the Jewish state. You’d have to question the immigration policy that welcomes Woody Allen as a full blown citizen but denies the refugee who fled his home at a time of war.

          1. To do that you’d have to deny the Jewish state.

            I have no problem condemning the ethnically/religiously framed modern right of return or any of the (small) set of such inequalities in the modern Israeli state. For example the marriage law issues.

            Now it’s your turn… condemn the Palestinians for something. You can do it!

            1. “Now it’s your turn… condemn the Palestinians for something. You can do it!”

              It’s not hard at all. I object to Hamas supporting Syria’s democratic opposition. This puts them in the same boat as al queda, ISIS and the US and Saudis. It’s a blunder, and the Palestinians should be smart enough to avoid falling for this kind of manoeuvring.

              1. THE Palestinian state is called the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

                1. 50+ years of fighting hasn’t convinced you of the inadequacy of this formulation? Let me guess. You’re a Zionist, aren’t you?

  19. if all the words collapsed from an eternity of diction in front of all of the college leaders they would melt into sad humans in the acid of centuries of sighs, screams, and musings.

    colleges are managed by dollar signatories… with slightly wrinkled weak faces attached to expensive maladies.

    college is like governance… a goddamn bullshit tunnel created in the test tubes of the ultra high towers most of which are fucking goddamn trillionaire dimbulbs.

    1. not clicking. Is “buzzkenya” Africa’s answer to Buzzfeed?

    2. Sonovabeech. NSFW. Click, but don’t scroll.

      1. Yeah, I have successfully avoided any photographic evidence accompanying various iterations of this story and I intend to keep it that way.

    3. 10x?

      The stereotype must be correct.

      Oh, it’s twue. It’s twue. It’s twue, it’s twue!

  20. the fact is, education on the supposed elite level has more to do with branding and a clever brochure swept open to the pizza guzzlers on the sports arenas…

    modern education is the river splitting the ancient swarthy bricks from the kleptomaniac angelics of fame dreams…

    freedom is space tanks on god flex… and I love liberty dog paws scratching at my goddamn fucking powerful biceps

  21. I can totally see Suthenboy asking to sign up for this idiot’s newsletter:

  22. All she neweds is a midget with a broom

    For a donation of $2,700, the children (under 16) of donors at an event last month at the Sag Harbor, N.Y., estate of the hedge fund magnate Adam Sender could ask Mrs. Clinton a question. A family photo with Mrs. Clinton cost $10,000, according to attendees.

    And when Mrs. Clinton attended a dinner at the Beverly Hills home of the entertainment executive Haim Saban last month, the invitation was very clear. If attendees wanted to dine and receive a photo with Mrs. Clinton they had to pay their own way: “Write not raise” $100,000.

    Another advantage to choosing private fund-raisers over town halls or other public events is that Mrs. Clinton can bask in an affectionate embrace as hosts try to limit confrontational engagements.

    Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a backer of Democrats and a friend of the Clintons’, made sure attendees did not grill Mrs. Clinton at the $100,000-per-couple lamb dinner Mrs. Forester de Rothschild hosted under a tent on the lawn of her oceanfront Martha’s Vineyard mansion.

    “I said, ‘Let’s make it a nice night for her and show her our love,'” Mrs. Forester de Rothschild said.

    Friend of the little man, sez I.

      1. She was featured in a story titled, “Weird Billionaires Who Are Turning Into Marxists” (right-click, open in private window to avoid paywall)

        When the billionaire merchandising mogul Johann Rupert gave a speech at the recent Financial Times’ “luxury summit” in Monaco, he sounded more like a Marxist theoretician… Rupert argued that it wasn’t right ? or even good business ? for “the 0.1 per cent of the 0.1 per cent” to raid the world’s spoils. “It’s unfair, and it is not sustainable,” he said.

        For several years now, populist politicians and liberal intellectuals have been inveighing against income inequality, an issue that is gaining traction among the broader body politic, as shown by a recent New York Times/CBS News poll…

        In March, for instance, Paul Tudor Jones II, the private-equity investor, gave a TED talk in which he proclaimed that the divide between the top 1 per cent in the United States and the remainder of the country “cannot and will not persist”.

        A few months earlier, Jeff Greene, a billionaire real estate entrepreneur, suggested on CNBC that the super rich should pay higher taxes in order to restore what he called “the inclusive economy that I grew up in”.

        “Let Them Eat Cake”-Ism, run amok

        1. Robert Owen, Robert Dale Owen, Friedrich Engels, George Soros…Bill Gates’ dad…it’s like a weird subculture…

        2. Why don’t they just give it all away & shut the hell up?

    1. For a donation of $2,700, the children (under 16) of donors… could ask Mrs. Clinton a question

      Why haven’t you done a press-conference since December 2015?”- asked a 6yr old

      1. “Because of Republicans and sexism [applause]. Don’t you love seeing the children get involved in the political process?”

      2. Because her campaign knows the best way to beat Trump is shut up and let him keep talking.

    2. Wow, that was the most unflattering article on Clinton I’ve seen from the NYT in a while.

    1. Harambe Mulatto the conscience of massive ape mauling Jesus Lords… WHO teh GODDAMN FUCK dowager love the HM addiction sleeves?

  23. Heroic Mulatto slices on the comet sandwiches melted in the ethos of deep alien vaginas in the cock ovens of prescient wanderings blimped from the brains of nipping tripping zeitgeist

  24. OT: I seem to remember one of the main writers being a prog fan. Can anyone refresh my memory?

    1. It was Weigel, wasn’t it..

      1. Weigel’s been writing a book about prog rock. I think it is now complete.

        1. He mentioned writing said book in 2013 It seems to have either never materialized.

          or maybe no one wanted to publish it. I mean, because…. “weigel” and “prog rock”. I’m not sure any more explanation is needed.

          1. I think he had a contract.

            His twitter bio:

            Covering national politics for @washingtonpost. Finishing a book about progressive rock (W.W. Norton).

  25. Tiny planets float in the velvetine vaginas of your fuckings…

  26. Gentle bubbly tits under the neon lights licked by my tongues are far better than space events and eclipse sheets.

  27. i fucking hate that digital reality is like goddamn stihl hums shredding tall monsters and their spread dreams.

  28. If you go blackout always be in a large box so you don’t fuck shit up like i always do, sweet librarians.

  29. In truth, students, faculty members, administrators, and protest movements of all ideological stripes have tried to censor their opponents on university campuses.

    Um, no offense, but go fuck yourself. Unless you care to cite examples of libertarians trying to censor opponents on university campuses.

    Jesus, if I wasn’t bald already, sloppy ass writing like this would cause me to pull my hair out.

    1. Of course, 99% of the attempts at censorship on campuses are coming from the leftists*. But Robby drags the right down with them so it looks better in his CV for down the road.

      * 1% is probably from righty schools but is already a part of the student code of conduct and agreed-to by enrolling students.

      1. “Of course, 99% of the attempts at censorship on campuses are coming from the leftists*.

        Let me be the first to tolerate these idiotic statistics,

        1. Yeah, the papers are just filled with stories of conservatives trying to stifle speech on campuses.

          1. Well we would see those articles but the conservatives are just that good at censorship.

            1. Mind. Blown.

          2. “Yeah, the papers are just filled with stories…”

            Only 99% of them.

            1. Gee trueman, trying to scare up some clicks on your pathetic web site? Or just randomly making an ass of yourself – again?

              1. “just randomly making an ass of yourself – again?”

                I’ve had my fun. Now it’s your turn.

            2. “99%”

              That is a Leftist number. You know, as in we are the 99%? Your argument would be strengthened if you could come up a number of your own rather than stealing one off the left.

              1. Ha! Nice catch. I didn’t even realize I said a number a leftist ass loan would glom onto and accuse me of using it for effect.

                And fwiw, I pulled that out of my ass. I’m sure it’s not quite 99% bu I’m sure it’s a lot closer to that than 50%.

        2. He did say “tried”.

          Now I lay me down to sleep
          I pray thee Lord my soul to keep
          If I should die before I wake
          Don’t greet me with a homo cake

          1. Love wins

  34. I hope and pray that if Trump wins the elections, he gives Ben Carson the responsibility of carrying the “football” with the nuclear codes. It’ll be hilarious!

    http://freebeacon.com/politics…..w-luggage/

    1. I hope and pray that Libertarian runs the world if Trump wins the elections and Ben Carson sucks Agile Cyborg cock because his goddamn mind is bent to eat Agile Cyborg cock because Bec Carson can make all sorts of shit better in the scapel world but I own his lovel ass in the coyoute workd

      1. I’ve got Agile Cyborg’s endorsement. It truly is the Libertarian moment!

  35. hmm okee… all sorts of clicking went gorilla imprisoned by human dreams and red balloons

    1. I’m no expert, but I think you misspelled baboons.

      1. Stop monkeying arose be with AC.

  36. Hitler. That’s who.

    Think about it.

    1. It isn’t like they are burning the film.

  37. “…I will lose credibility with a number of film and Women/Gender studies colleagues. Sadly, I have not had the chance to see your film and can only vouch for it through my friend and through published reviews.

    Clearly I am politically naive. I also feel tremendous shame in reneging on a half-offered invitation.”

    Does he wear pants?

    1. I’m just curious why he’d lose credibility with womyns/gender studies colleagues. Are they de facto supporters of Palestenians over Israel? I ask because they’re usually not interrelated issues except to note that Israel is a lot more tolerant than Hamas when it comes to women, transgendered or gay people and one might expect them to naturally side with the people that respect them as equal human beings (in the case of the womyn) or worthy of not being chucked off of buildings or stoned to death because of who they sleep with (the rest of them).

      1. Isn’t Zionism institutional patriarchy? What self-respecting feminist could support that?

        1. Since you’re a Jew because your mother is a Jew, it’s a Matriarchy, not Patriarchy.

          Is Justin Weiner a Jew or a Muslim?

      2. one might expect them to naturally side with the people that respect them as equal human beings

        Good one.

      3. Are they de facto supporters of Palestenians over Israel?

        pretty much

      4. Israel lost all its credit with the left once they started continuously winning in the Middle East. Leftist rhetoric about Israel was a lot lighter between 1949 and 1967 when they were the poor little nation barely holding on while also embracing some socialist models (the kibbutz being the classic). It’s once it became obvious that the Arab states weren’t going to be able to stop them that their rhetoric shifted. Because once it stopped being a potential ‘oppressed’ it was just an ‘oppressor’ and that’s about as much insight that the modern leftist zeitgeist has.

        It’s the ultimate in Slave Morality.

      5. They’re all minorities, and minorities are expected to support each other?

    2. I lost credibility with those people and now I’m stuck here on Saint Helena.

      1. So *you’re* the impostor who’s convinced all those doctors that I’m not the *real* Napoleon!

        1. If you’re the real Napoleon then explain how you lost the Second Battle of Bassano.

    3. I will lose credibility with a number of film and Women/Gender studies colleagues

      Because god knows, you really need to keep THOSE people on your side.

      1. This letter sounds passive-aggressive. “These colleagues of mine would make my life a living hell if I invited you, and I don’t want the hassle, but I’m going to arrange it so they get a bit of blowback for their behavior.”

    4. If he does wear pants, does he have anything in them?

    1. I hate that band. Listen to this OT song instead

      1. I hate that band.

        Hating the Breeders because of their two overplayed radio songs is kinda a mistake, FWIW.

  38. As I suspected, I found an article including guns on a list of “social issues.”

    This is how the media and the “centrists” perceive the matter.

    1. In the hands of LEOs it could be.

  39. From July 28 – more evidence guns are treated as a social issue or culture war issue

    “Nancy Pelosi blames ‘God, guns and gays’ for Clinton’s struggles with white bros…

    “”I think that, so many times, white ? non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose,” Pelosi said, according to the New York Post.”

    1. ” . . . they vote against their own economic interests . . . ”

      The hubris reeks

    2. Weren’t those people traditionally voting Democrat?

      Also, fuck Nancy Pelosi.

    1. Wut? Won’t PA just let you deduct the taxes NJ grabs? That’s what NY does. (I work in NJ.)

    2. Why would a PA resident work in NJ? Trenton and the Philly burbs in NJ are jobless shitholes.

  40. The Top Gun Industry Trade Group Just Pledged to Help to Prevent Nearly 10,000 Suicides

    “The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry’s top trade group, is partnering for the first time with the country’s leading suicide prevention organization. The ambitious goal of the collaboration: averting nearly 10,000 deaths over the next decade.

    “The program, initiated by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, will strive to educate people on the risk factors and warning signs of suicide, and provide guidance on how best to talk to someone who may be considering trying to end his or her own life, says Robert Gebbia, the chief executive of AFSP.

    “Notably, the program will also recommend blocking family members who are suicidal from accessing firearms by, for example, emphasizing the importance of securely locking guns away. It is not clear whether the AFSP guidance will include specific suggestions about how to remove weapons from potentially suicidal people. The NSSF, which represents thousands of gun dealers and manufacturers, provided input into the program and is also promoting it.

    1. “Gun groups have traditionally been reluctant to acknowledge that the presence of a firearm poses an increased risk to people who are considering taking their own lives. Gebbia says buy-in from the NSSF is especially important in persuading people that blocking gun access in certain situations is about saving lives, not depriving people of their rights.

      “”This isn’t giving up the firearm forever. It’s during that crisis,” Gebbia tells The Trace. “This is not a Second Amendment issue. It’s a way to make sure that people at risk of suicide shouldn’t have access to any of the means,” he says.”

      1. “”There is zero question that firearms are the single biggest leverage point for lowering the national suicide rate,” [“researcher” Michael] Anestis says. “[The program] is a first step, but it’s not as if the problem is solved.””

        1. If this doesn’t get a response, I’ll be like the worst troll ever. The Billy Goats Gruff will point and laugh at me.

          1. SPACE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK

          2. Man, fuck this. A person has a right to blow his or her brains out. Taking a gun away from someone that just wants to end it is cruel.

            1. Meh, as long as it’s voluntary and not some government program.

          3. Election day will bring Trumpkins a new perspective on the firearms they bought to round up illegals and prevent terrorist attacks while they are just a glimmer in a Muslim’s eye.

                      forests into the projected screams of Mulatto planets weaving and trimming on the ships of dragging dark matter spitting the clouds of Mulatto imagination paste like cum on the walls of hells
                      surrounding your fucking existence under orgasmic fountains falling and crashing from heavens
                      no one thought of until fucking tonight!!

                    5. We had a patient in our ER the other day who was an aspiring rapper. He was entertaining the nursing staff with some of his raps. I don’t remember most of it, but one part was:

                      You seem some kind of ho-mo
                      Cause you suck off all the po-po
                      Lovin that crew with the guns and the bats
                      Says Go Blue on one of your tats

      2. I,guess they’ve never heard of a little place called Japan.

  41. First they came for Citizens United, but I wasn’t a corporation…

  42. NY Gov. Cuomo signs “unconstitutional, McCarthyite” pro-Israel exec. order punishing BDS boycott movement

    Anyone notice the email was sent just a few weeks after this law was passed? No, of course you didn’t. Because that would explain why Constitutional protections should be irrelevant and people get radicalized because they just cray-cray.

  43. The grey line box is my fucking gift box to my companions but when I step back maybe the gray line ain’t nothing and fucking shit tripped off my fingers aint no goddamn gift to my companions and maybe agile is a fucking stack of turds empty with fucking lines filled with ghosts and clouds and rain…

    but I love my companions on this place. super voices melted down in letters clicked from voids. I love my companions in this clouds of voices and times and old basements where records stack like stars and everyday.

  44. mouse traps are placed in dark shadows like dreams
    roaches spin parks in the spirals of ghetto lady’s photo album
    cats with fur melted off their tails and dogs with one leg and humans
    with one arm and clouds that rain every day and blocks of houses with
    front doors with bells that don’t work and bridges with ghosts underneath
    and woods filled with bunkers imagined in the minds of boys
    run over by trucks and kites

  45. i found an old coin underneath a tuft of grass underneath a chicken
    next to a basketball backboard with no net and a sun that skipped on broken arms
    which included mine but add a bucket fuck of tears from my head because i lost in wrestling

  46. i saw the fucking ghost next to my goddamn face and the attic opened its mouth and all the shit of the world poured into
    my fucking eyes like a million inverted volcanoes and the fucking muddy stacks of old hills pointed up into smash creeks and now into the roots of upturned villages from my head filled the shade of old trucks and brown parks with dicks and balls painted on their walls with fucking cheap spray cans and bravado

  47. the alongside place where the lives are long
    you can look down past the earth on this path
    and your hand cannot cling to anything because
    nothing exists to save yourself, love
    the alongside place
    is on top of space
    the alongside place is just before
    you die
    where between the old age or bullet or jump
    you get to look down on the world
    and a million lines can enter your brain like a
    fucking train of philosophy and then your
    existence implodes and…

    the alongside place i live in everyday…

    never die, loves

  48. Good Evening, A C!

    Your postings reminded me of this old chestnut (props to S P):

    “I’m a riddle in nine syllables,
    An elephant, a ponderous house,
    A melon strolling on two tendrils.
    O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!
    This loaf’s big with its yeasty rising.
    Money’s new-minted in this fat purse.
    I’m a means, a stage, a cow in calf.
    I’ve eaten a bag of green apples,
    Boarded the train there’s no getting off.”

    Of course, your work is more, um, esoteric.

    1. you are a broken angel, rich

      1. and i will forever love you

        1. …Rich, the canvas of clocks and spears

  49. falling lost souls drip like memories from my clicks
    and the corners of my abode are filled with the shadows
    of times and its dragons

    stiff most of us stand in the pulsating horn of our times
    but the woods of the strong man holds destiny
    and the alleys of our minds can sustain anarchy shit into the heavens

    meanwhile, we carve out simple fucking lives in the
    average everyplace where the street signs have no
    hawks or dragons sitting on them and angels die in our
    townhouses and superwomen eat spaceships on moons
    never fucking found near our turnabouts.

  50. I’m pretty certain that saying no to an Israeli film simply for being Israeli is the complete opposite of political correctness.

    Cowardice, perhaps.

    1. Israel makes fuckshit, maybe. But Israel the jews is and will forever be the bo jangles of Agile. Israel is the underdog sought to be eaten by the bulldogs of the earth and she lies surrounded by killers, stabbers, cutters, and maimers…

      Until Islam grow up and gets out of its several hundred years of high school I will continue to appreciate the plight of the Jews- many of modern which have no FUCKING idea of the horrid shit their histories ply.

      If your religion doesn’t drive trucks into masses, send cousins into markets, pump rockets into cities, break down the centuries into ghost armies culling enemies spilling the blood of times like eternal dungeons… I can perhaps seek a common tone on the odd occasion where the petals of gardens sit at rapt attention….

    2. No, Jews are below Muslims on the PC hierarchy. They really don’t beat anybody but white Christian males and centipedes.

      1. Sounds about right. Which is strange if you look at it through the prism of who has had to go through the most shit.

        It really just highlights the fact that people “standing up against oppression” aren’t actually doing that, but instead propping up and making excuses for people with low levels of achievement. Jews are victims of their own success.

        Kakistocracy.

  51. niches formed in the certainty of the
    girl as she flailed at the tornadoes on the lake
    of her tempest while the centuries of a thousand earths collapsed upon her
    mindlessly ravaging her entire world through the vortex of killing wind streams happily dancing
    on the fields of golden acres and sunsets spilling across the pavement of ripples and fields shorn clean from
    weekends and boat trips…

  52. Your skin is delicacy
    your arms are reaching sun storms
    your breasts magnetize my lips
    your thighs glow with the energy of moons beyond earth
    your neck is velvet
    your hair breaks the earth
    your eyelids hide the goddesses of times
    your ear lobes force my teeth to gentle them
    your shoulders dimple the pillows of stars
    your belly is sleek with gentle oceans
    your toes trip giants
    your ass curves like majestic rivers
    your calves rear lions
    your knees spring like evolutionary forces
    your fingers spread like rainbows
    your cheeks bounce the suns like eleven dimension
    your chin I kiss like forever
    your forehead is the rock of the greatest calm
    your eyelids hide mysteries
    your vagina lips I massage with my lips like cocaine
    your clit I eat like beef
    your entire visage is a million angels
    sent to ruin my fucking self and as I die
    your heels are like kissing your goddamn lips

  53. “Political Correctness Prevents Syracuse University from Screening Israeli Film”

    This wasn’t the result of political correctness.

    This was the result of political advocacy.

  54. Seems the Notre Dame defensive coach thinks tackling is giveing the other guy a manly hug!
    Hint; the guy with the ball goes nowhere his knees don’t; stop them and you got something.

  55. investigating my selves I found tears and anger
    piling up behind the sleeves of my fathers
    and where the stonework hid my generations I also
    discovered hinges relating to my pathologies
    that screamed the lost souls of genetic anomalies
    that lurked in the stonehenge of my fucking minds

  56. hollows bellow
    under the rain
    whilst taut resistance
    fled the now but
    now is not now but
    now but now is
    actually the now
    of lost nows buried
    under a month of nows

  57. fingers ply and clutch the ruins
    scrabbling under the alleys of lost thoughts
    and rivers down cast eyes where the guest angels
    sign the paper and vaunt while the fusion man fuses
    his fish from the fusion streams

    1. siv the finger lake
      haunts end tables
      like sticky bud and
      old candles

      1. And the residue from the bottom of the septic tank; that’s our SIV!

    2. I see the NYT is out to create yet another moral panic.

      1. The KULTUR WAR has gone chemical!

    3. This NYT article is pure fucking GOLD! I need to check and see if there’s comments.

      The Birth of Rolling Coal

      Rolling coal has origins in truck pulls, in which pickups compete to pull a heavy sled the farthest. Drivers modify their trucks to pump excessive fuel into the engines, increasing horsepower and torque. Stripped of emissions controls, the trucks also bellow thick, black smoke.

      At a recent truck pull at the McHenry County Fair in Woodstock, Ill., the fumes were part of the draw. “When the smoke goes black, don’t look back,” read one man’s T-shirt.

      “We pull for bragging rights,” said Scott Vivian, president of the Illini State Pullers league, the event’s organizer. “And smoke’s a big part of it.”

      1. ‘Can You Believe It?’

        A group of Canadian cyclists touring the Vermont countryside in June was on the receiving end of a coal roller’s attention. A white pickup truck accelerated, then belched on the bikers, said John Gelder, a management consultant based in Ottawa.

        Several minutes later, the truck returned to smoke them out a second time.

        “What the hell. Can you believe it?'” Mr. Gelder remembers shouting to his friend Steve Fischer, a Canadian journalist who was touring with him. “It’s like weapons. They think: ‘We’re entitled to our guns, and we’re entitled to our roads,'” Mr. Gelder said. “It’s almost an assault.”

        The group alerted the police in Morristown, Vt., who Mr. Gelder said took no action. Andrew Glover of the Morristown Police Department said that officers would probably not pursue the case.

        “We don’t have a law against whatever they did,” he said.

        Don’t mess with Vermont, Mister Snowback. They may not “Live free or Die” but when in “Cool Green Vacation Land” you must do as the “Cool Green Vacation Landers”

        God I Love America!

        1. Apparently my grade school geography education retention failed. Oregon is “cool green vacation land”. Vermont is “Freedom and Unity”. What’s weird is I got stuck with Vermont on our 4th grade state reports but I had a strong proto-sexual interest in the girl who drew Oregon.

    4. “You have created a growing business transforming lawful, emission-compliant vehicles into illegal, pollution-belching” trucks, Dr. Moench wrote in a letter to the Diesel Brothers. “To what purpose?”

      hmmm let me see how to phrase this, its on the tip of my tongue, something i hear all the time from the govt… oh, yes… = FUCK YOU, THAT’S WHY

      1. I only hope Dr. Moench lives long enough to find himself as a “blood bag” chained to the front of a modified diesel truck as it speed across to wasteland on the glorious road to Valhalla.

    5. If the tractor-pulling didn’t warm your heart, maybe this will =

      Young Blacks = Not So Hot For Clinton or Democrats

      there have been some idiots (tulpa flavored ones in particular) in the past who have expressed great certainty about the coming demographic doom which signals an inevitable “one-party America” = because ‘young people’ are always leftists, and minorities are also eternal slaves to TEAM BLUE, etc. Add some mexican babies in Texas and Voila! Pelosi Uber Alles

      I’ve often pointed out in reply that the only constant is ‘change’ and that every time something becomes the ‘dominant status-quo’ it quickly loses its sex-appeal. I don’t think that means that black americans (or the yoots) are going to be rallying for the GOP in the next few elections; just that politics is like trying to build a pyramid out of jello – you can only get so far before it all starts slipping back towards the margins

      1. I was in the Raleigh, NC Cabela’s last Sunday, stopping off to buy some work clothes on my way back from antiquing at the state fairgrounds flea market. The firearms counter was two deep all the way across with Mexicans. Families more than groups of young men. They were shopping and buying handguns mostly, not hunting long-arms. I’m sure many arrived in modified cars and pickups too. Relatively well paid family-oriented agricultural, manufacturing and construction workers who like guns, modify their vehicles, and enjoy air conditioning, abundant hot water and meat aren’t reliable Democrat voters.

        I’m all for touch-back (consulate) amnestying all the law-abiding,child-supporting, gainfully-employed not-yet legal ones who want to be American citizens. They’ll offset all those Yankee commies flooding the triangle and coastal regions of the state

        1. well paid family-oriented agricultural, manufacturing and construction workers who like guns, modify their vehicles, and enjoy air conditioning, abundant hot water and meat aren’t reliable Democrat voters.

          There’s some truth to the argument that the Democrats have always been the party of “The Over-Educated and the Under-Educated*” – and that the schism is getting wider and less-appealing to the middle.

          I think its true that “democrats” do have a long-term demographic advantage – but that what ‘democrats’ ARE may transform to where that advantage erases itself. Because they have to drift further and further leftward to keep these SJW-psychos in the fold (*and indeed – those people are increasingly being given institutional power, like the Catherine Lhamons @ the Dept of Ed, or others)… and in so doing, they’ll certainly keep a certain *type* of voter… but frankly i already see their shtick wearing thin even on much of their ‘core’.

          Someone here once said that the best way to undermine progressives is to give them everything they want. I think that’s exactly right. And its part of why i think President Hillary may be a blessing in disguise.

      2. I don’t think that means that black americans (or the yoots) are going to be rallying for the GOP in the next few elections

        Black Americans don’t seem especially motivated to vote for anyone. Oh, except the First Black President, which I’m assured is not due to racist reasons of racial solidarity. Because Obama is like, totally culturally African-American despite being raised in Hawaii by white women. They voted for Obama for his positions alone, and are not voting for Hillary because of her … uh… identical… positions.

  58. turning the puddles into upside down ponds is
    where i found the fiddler dancing his dreams
    and scratching arcs spraying sparks like comets
    arriving far too late for dinner at agile’s house

  59. i think i will now fall into this hole i see on the carpet where all the sparkling creatures wave… i will indeed picnic with majestic lizards tonight my companions. I love you forever, sweet volcanoes. I also love my man at the smokehouse of steam heavens. Infinity peace, companions.

  60. Watching the Texas/ND game. Those chaps the Longhorn cheerleaders wear – what percentage of those have been worn during sex? 100%?

  61. fucking thick cum plasters hell like angel vagina paste with all the heavens angelic sucking and pleasure shrieking splatting all the grey lined boxes with gonad propelled pleasure jets… and connected across fucking worlds and times and who knows what else lines merged and shit… pure love for the form of lines, letters, pussies, tits, cocks, hawks, and fucking shit only the gods know.

  62. Fuck the goddamn hodge twins- don’t need your motherfucking dick pills, birches…. Agile gets a thousand erections per day eating goddamn indian tepees, buffalos, spaceships, gem clits, and deep earth dreams all equating to ejaculations that WILL FUCKING smash the FUCK out of your Hodge TWIN SHIT. FUCKING sweet semi-black whores! my fucking sperm sprays tight blonde body from pussy lip split to neck uptown… and then a peck on the double nipples to seal the deal plus a thumb in the ass to initiate round 2.. praise jesus plus the goddamn almond chocolates and pineapples.

  63. “the BDS faction on campus will make matters very unpleasant for you and for me if you come.”

    They aren’t even bothering to not sound like mobsters anymore.

  64. For a long, long time, anybody who so much as questioned whether Israel was a friend worth having for the US, much less called attention to the wrongs it did, was screamed down.

    Now the shoe is on the other foot.

    Payback can be a bitch sometimes, can’t it?

  65. I don’t deny that PC runs rampant in our universities, but I don’t see this example as exemplary. In her letter, the professor admits to having recommended it without seeing it herself. Whether a film is made by an Israeli filmmaker or a Palestinian filmmaker, or whoever, I think it’s prudent not to risk being seen as a shill for someone’s propaganda. I’m not saying that the film in question is propaganda – I’m saying Prof Hammer doesn’t know if it is or not.

  66. Someone explain why BDS isn’t listed as a terrorist organization.
