He can’t help it; he’s conservative

Prediction (posted two hours before game time today, December 30):
Minnesota lawn pests 31, Wisconsin Badgers 27.

The indentured servants are adjusting the rabbit ears on the Manor’s 13-inch b&w Philco and covering their own ears. Long years of servitude have inured them to the inevitable: They know their revered Squire will say something just plain nutty, perforated with percussive Anglo-Saxon witticisms during the course of the football game.  

old PhilcoTheir passivity runs counter to the advice from The Nation (John Nichols’ day job). See how many hateful stereotypes his progressive-socialist instruction book crams into just four paragraphs:

This Thanksgiving, It’s Time to
Take On Your Conservative Relatives

Contrary to popular opinion, the holidays are not a time to “navigate” your uncle’s bigoted MAGA jokes. They’re the time to confront him.

norman-rockwell-defiledTake a traditional Thanksgiving Day football game. This may seem like safe, nonpolitical ground — so long as everybody agrees to not talk about Colin Kaepernick. But it won’t take long for Trump supporters in your family to say something racist, sexist, or plain nutty while watching the game. 

They’ll say a white athlete is just a “hard worker” while praising a black athlete’s “natural gifts.” They’ll champion a slur against Native Americans masquerading as a nickname, on a holiday that commemorates the prelude to a continental genocide. …

Or maybe they’ll just sit like lumps on the couch while women: prepare dinner, set the table, take care of the kids, clean up after dinner, serve dessert, and fetch them a beer.

The Squire is tempted to say “Sounds like a plan.” But that would be just plain nutty! The servants know their Squire prefers a stony white wine, chilled.

We can’t even watch football without being hectored by the P.C. nannies. You really think George Orwell was exaggerating?


Trump T-giving


It’s time to take on the progressive news media

The mainstream news media has its undies in the proverbial bundle that Trump pardoned and restored the rank of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who was convicted in court martial of posing for a photograph with a dead terrorist combatant. 

Comment, respond, what do you thinkA Tribune News Service story: “A senior Navy official in San Diego said … Trump is making decisions on bad information. … The country has never faced this kind of ‘debacle,’ he [the unnamed “senior Navy official”] said. “This stuff, going back to the Civil War, has literally never happened.”

Huh??? Are we forgetting Barack Obama commuted the sentence of Army Pvt. Bradley Chelsea Manning, convicted of stealing thousands of pages of classified material, despite the opposition of his own Department of Defense? Or that Obama released five terrorists from Gitmo in exchange for Army deserter Bowe Berghdahl? Complete with White House rose garden ceremony! At least six soldiers died trying to retrieve him after he fell into the clutches of the Taliban. 

(GW)-narwhal-tusk

Britain’s first line of defense: the narwhal

If they bring a knife, we bring a tusk

Haven’t we read this headline before: “Neighborhood is looking for solutions after shooting.” This one announces the shoot-out this week on Cottage Grove Road on Madison’s east side. Cars and apartment buildings shot up, 36 shell casings, recovered. Looking for solutions, are we? Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway, would faster buses help?

When guns are banned: Among the citizens who subdued that knife-wielding terrorist on London Bridge, one was armed with a fire extinguisher and another, a Polish chef, wielded a 5-foot long narwhal tusk! And the bad guy — he stabbed to death two people — was wearing an electronic ankle bracelet! (More here.)

Blaska’s Bottom Line: From my cold, wet hands, these narwhal tusks!

    Ahhh Mr. B, you’ve done it again. Cracked up at the image of your classic antique TV, faster busses to combat fast bullets. Even the graphic description of watching football while trying to maintain political silence, and then actually drinking wine instead of beer….Yeah I read to the end. Loved every word. Hope you and the bride really did have a good TDay. We sure did…in 85 degrees and sunny. Sorry, am I rubbing it in? Luvyatabitz, man!

    Conservatives are nutty because they do the same things over and over again without learning from their failures. They’ve failed to conserve anything of value and handed the nation over passively. Your grandchildren will inherit a third world country or a tyrannical Communist regime.

        Better watch the video. Conservative policy is passive and allows the aggressive take over of socialism. Conservatism is all defense and no offense. Conservatism ignores the connection between national demographics and the ability to conserve the constitutional republic. Most of which has already been lost. The people pushing socialism on the left are the same people who control the weak Conservative narrative on the right. Keeping conservatives neutered in the face of a violent and radical ideology. Only force can meet force. Only terror can meet terror. You can’t fight a radical ideology with a passive attitude.

        The conservative strategy is to close their eyes and their ears, then repeat the slogan they’ve been taught. “I’M NOT RACIST. HAIL ISRAEL!”

    David, You nailed it: “faster buses” cracked me up, a real belly laugh. “Mayor Sadly-Content” can hand out body condoms for protection from the spitters and whizzers on the various bus routes. Also, perhaps they can provide ULTRA fast transport for patrons of upper State st. @ bar time, and whisk these folks outta danger….

    RE: Qdoba disturbance early AM today…. An MPD sergeant said in his report, “I observed approximately 200 people in the street, several causing minor disturbances, and observed several people detained by officers… The scene was complete chaos, bedlam, insanity…the likes of which I have never seen in my 12+ years as a Madison Police Officer.”
