Garofalo, clinging to hope that Anthony Weiner will still be mayor someday

June 11, 2011
why would anyone believe that giving people like Weiner more power is a good idea? because they believe in a huge nanny state. Don’t let the Cigie full you. Garafalo’s tush is owned by the powers that be. The big money is the state, not the rich. Billionaires like Bloomberg know this. That is why moving up is out of the free market and into government. Bloomberg would never have the power he has if he were just using his own money.
…meanwhile… never mind the Weiner….

in Spain the ruling Socialist party faces prospect of “humiliating”, “crushing” defeat… because taking money from individuals for a government that is in debt about twenty times all the rich people in the U.S. combined is not a good idea.  You take away from the few to kill the engine of development.  It’s proven.

Chavez Says Capitalism May Have Destroyed Life On Mars

March 28, 2011

any aliens that may come visiting.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez thinks capitalism may be responsible for the lack of life on the planet Mars.  “I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet,” Chavez said in a speech on Tuesday. The socialist president has been a fierce opponent of capitalism, and during his World Water Day speech, Chavez blamed capitalism for destroying Earth’s water supplies as well.  “Here on planet Earth, where hundreds of years ago or less there were great forests, now there are deserts. Where there were rivers, there are deserts,” Chavez said. Guy Webster, a spokesman with the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, noted: “Water has been discovered on Mars.” But whether the planet ever supported life has yet to be confirmed.

Dumb and dumber; Socialist Left daft darling says it is all a misunderstanding

March 27, 2011
…………………………………………… is not my fault @‘s “Commies” are funny.
the stupid happen to be Socialists.

Labor has its way with govt junior partner

In what must have been a night to remember, Socialist Left vice chairman Bård Vegard Solhjell, now wants to have us believe that the verbatim quote from his own unanimous editorial committee is a horrible mistake:

The credibility of the world community in its confrontation with the Gadafi regime is undermined when there is no reaction against other states in the region who commit injustices against civil population. The greater world community must therefore also react against Israeli air attacks on the Gaza strip.

This, the SV spin doctor now claims, cannot conceivably be interpreted to mean that they are opening up for bombing Israel, but rather:

What they meant to say was that  the UN needs to get engaged in the other ongoing conflicts in the region criticize the violence against civilians and work to introduce democracy also in these countries. But the situation in Syria, Bahrain, Yemen is not comparable with the extreme situation we saw in Libya

So, if that is what they meant, why did they not write it?
I only wish I was a fly on the wall when the Labor party found out about this. I am sure that was an interesting conversation.

Marxist and Muslim Meetings at Auckland University in New Zealand

March 16, 2011
Joe Carolan, center

The Marxist/Muslim alliance is a worldwide phenomenon. In New Zealand, Auckland University is a major center of this new “Axis of Evil”.

On March 11, Auckland University’s Marxist and radical Muslim activists got together to hold a
“2011: A year of Uprising: Middle East Freedom Forum”.

Joe Carolan‘s Socialist Aotearoa and Students for Justice in Palestine were the main organizers, but the Communist League (NZ affiliate of the US Socialist Workers Party) also showed up with their cutesy little book stall.

Other lefties in evidence included Amnesty on Campus, Oxfam, and Medical Students for Global Awareness.

Speakers included :  
  • Mohsen Al-Attar – “What Arabs can learn from Malcolm X”
  • Mohamed Hassan -“The role of youth and new media in the Egyptian Revolution”
  • Rana Ghumkhor – “The importance of women during the uprisings and what the revolutions could mean for occupied lands”
  • Bilel Ragued – “North African Revolutions – a personal perspective”
  • Zaeem Baksh – “It’s time, it’s time, its Palestine”

Mohsen Al Attar, an Auckland University lecturer of  Canadian /Egyptian extraction, was described by one attendee as a very persuasive speaker, reminiscent almost of Van Jones. I have written extensively on Attar here, here and here.
Rana Ghumkhor, an Afghan refugee, has long been one of the most radical activists at Auckland University. She is hard core. She once wrote a short story, in the first person, telling the story of a suicide bombing on a bus outside Jerusalem.

For generations we suffered at the hands of the Zionists. Oh my insane rage vengeance will be ours, the clouds will clear and the sun will shine on us again….
I feel around in my pocket for the trigger that leads to the c4-tapped securely to my chest. I swallow the bile that had risen in my throat. I am afraid yes, I am afraid the bomb wont go off…
I clutch the trigger in my hand. I take the time to acknowledge each person in the bus. I feel the walls in my heart closing up for I feel no pity where we received none. I look out the window for the last time. The bus is coming over a hill. There lies Jerusalem in all its glory. I close my eyes and take my last breath…. Freedom…

Zaeem Baksh, has a Phd from the University of California, Berkeley, and has been active in Students for Justice in Palestine at Waikato and Auckland universities.
Speaker after speaker covered  all the usual bases;

  • Vocal and emotional support of revolutions in all the Middle East
  • Denouncement of “Apartheid Israel”
  • Encouragement to boycott all Israeli goods
  • Marxist-style anti-rich sentiment (“Why did we elect a $21 million prime minister?”)
  • Calls for the immediate removal of troops from Afghanistan (NZ troops)
  • Anti-American sentiment, particularly perceived American imperialism

Following the “Middle East Freedom Forum”, there was a student-led vigil in the quad, held in honor of the “thousands of students and citizens who have died protesting for freedom and democracy across North Africa and the Middle East in the last few weeks”. 
Marxist Green Party MP Keith Locke also turned up. After supporting Pol Pot’s invasion of Cambodia, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the murderous Philippines New Peoples Army, Irish Republicanism, the Palestinian Intifada and countless other Marxist and terrorist causes over the years, wild camels couldn’t have kept him away.
A fun night of incitement to mayhem and socialist revolution was had by all!
