First we’ll come for the Thespians

First we’ll come for the Thespians

From reader Pam:

Hi – I am a longtime reader who has never contributed, but I love the blog – especially the bumper sticker category.

I just had to send this picture of an acquaintance’s car – not surprisingly, the owner is from lower Fairfield County, CT and works in higher education. The fact that the car festooned with these liberal gems is a Prius is just icing on the cake.

The one on the top left is hard to read in the photo, but it says OMG GOP WTF!

Well, Obama did repeal “Don’t ask, Don’t tell” and he is a big supporter of Gays and Thespians.

At the end of WWII, Europe had an overabundance of Socialist educators who were displaced persons a result of the war, a lot of whom the United States graciously allowed to immigrate into our country and who subsequently went to work in our institutions of higher learning. Without the American soldier, and America’s blood and treasure, the Nazis would have eventually found and killed most of these Socialist educators. However, in gratitude for the new lease on life that America provided them, their disciples, students and progeny now labor 24/7, 365 to destroy the society and the country that provided their salvation.

    Cheer up . You got Einstein & Argentina got Mengeles.

    And what have you done with Bitterclinger? He was much happier.

      FGS 2 dislikes for a little mild fun pushback on a stupid anti intellectual rant that provided not one bit of evidence -not even a name.

      May i mention the USA’s recruitment of thousands of Nazi scientists mathematicians & technicians immediately after ww2 to boost the capacity of American science & fuel the ‘cold ‘war with the USSR?

      And BC are Americans so lilly willed that they wilted in the face of war stricken intellectuals -those hat had survived? So these bedraggled souls came & took ver the cow colleges & brainwashed American kids for 60 years?

      All this because of a sticker in Conneticut ?

      Did Mengeles’s American approved assistants do some brain surgery on you ?

    As I was trying to explain to friends over dinner last night (but, alas, I’m not a thespian and the spoken word usually fails me) a childhood friend whose grandfather was a prominent composer in Germany and who corresponded with Einstein, escaped from the Nazis and settled here in Southern California.

    My friend was a radical leftist even before I knew what the word “politics” meant.

    He was given to calling the Israelis “Nazis,” blaming them and America for all the world’s problems, and he actually gave me some book (which really should’ve been burned as pathetic propaganda … instead I just threw it away after I read it) which painted the Palestinians as the most oppressed people in the history of the world by the evil, evil Israelis.

    I don’t see him or talk to him much anymore (he seems to take my conservatism as a personal affront … especially after all his efforts to make me think the “correct” way).

    I just feel like asking him,

    “Where would you be today if your grandfather hadn’t escaped the Nazis? If he had stayed in Europe, would he have been persecuted as much as he was here, in America (where he was awarded a Pulitzer)? Would the Israeli “Nazis” have persecuted him as much or more as the German Nazis?

    Of course, I don’t like enraged, indignant spittle sprayed on my face by someone ranting … so, for that reason, as well as the fact that I know that you just can’t change some people, I’ll just talk about the weather or something next time I see him … wait a minute, can’t do that … things got a bit heated last time he stopped by when he was in town and the topic of global warming came up. He assured me I was an idiot for being skeptical … of course, I didn’t mention that he also called me an idiot about 12 years ago when I expressed skepticism about all his Y2K doomsaying … even after he assured me I was an idiot to be skeptical because he was up on all the latest about the impending Y2K doom being abreast as he was of all the latest in all the academic journals and all.

    It’s not that he was flat out wrong again …

    I think it’s just that I’m like Forest Gump and my opinions on politics and all just somehow turn out right while his turn out wrong … just out of simple, dumb luck.

    Life is like a box of chocolates … with a lot of overeducated nuts inside.

      Displaced Persons were WWII refugees often fleeing both Germans and Soviets. Capture meant unspeakable suffering, probably death.

      Тhe USA took them in. А huge proportion of these folks, and especially their yuppie kids/grandkids are rabid liberal Democrats. Even though Democrats snuggle up to the kind of tyrants (until the Iron Curtain fell, the very same regimes!) that drove their families out of Europe.

      I’m from a family of Displaced Persons (both sides) that is conservative (parents only; everyone else rabidly leftist). A guy from a family like mine, who never served in the military (I had just gotten out) publicly called me a cowardly armchair general for supporting the War on Terror invasion of Iraq. (It wasn’t me on the ground, you see.)

      A mystery of the Universe.

        Displaced persons had many active Nazis & Nazi collaborators in their ranks. The Baltic community were all escaping the coming wrath of the USSR & for good reason. But this does not mean they are heroes.

        Those that exited via Rome had high level Vatican 7 Croatian assistance hnce the high number of ex croats still under extradition for war crimes actions.

        In short -plenty are not leftists but pure Euro Totalitarians.

        Also USA was not the only country that took people in. For good & bad – mostly good for us.

Ah, but is the owner a thespian who masticates in public?

FenelonSpoke | July 13, 2012 at 7:58 am

“Thespians for Obama”. Does that mean that they appreciate the acting job he pulled in 2008-pretending to be a moderate Dem who was going to bring “hope”, a bipartisan unity builder? Great acting job there.

Well, this part time thespian with almost forty years of acting experience ISN”T for Obama.

Six Degrees of Separation:

Thespian>Actor>Pretender>”Warren”-ator>Minority Impersonator>Progressive

Calling the ACA “Obamacare” is racist.

Higher education….public or private??? Either way …Probably has pension funds in the stock market through TIAA-CREF. This Prius owner would be well advised to vote his short/long term economic interests. Those interests are going are and will continue to be abysmal with BHO in the WH.

Nice car. Wanna bet its loaded with all the extras. In effect paid for from Obamas stash. We now know where some of the stimulus went.

VetHusbandFather | July 13, 2012 at 9:39 am

Clearly this Thespian failed basic math. They seem to not understand that the “=” sign means equivalent.

Whoomp! There It Is.

Are we sure that whole thing isn’t a rip?

As my friend Grumpo sez… “It really takes a smawt person to believe all the crap that’s coming out of the White House these days!”

BTW, we have a bet on the election in November and he’s stated that he will be delighted to pay for a fancy sea food dinner IF the GOP wins this November. He had been considering Romney to be another Dole or McCain but I think that he’s changing his assessment.

Romney in order to be a successful CEO has to have had the “killer” instinct and he’s demonstrated such several times during this campaign. I’m pretty well encouraged…

“When I think about what we’ve done well and what we haven’t done well,” the president said, “the mistake of my first term – couple of years – was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that’s important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times.”

The theatrics of leadership is strong in The One.

Unions = Jobs.

Couldn’t believe it the first time it.

So, if everyone would just join a union, unemployment will magically disappear!

    Sanddog in reply to CalMark. | July 13, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Since union members have more allegiance to their union bosses than to their real employers, it’s not difficult to see why a union member would actually believe the union created the job.

    VetHusbandFather in reply to CalMark. | July 13, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Duh… Unions ensure that workers have higher wages and better benefits. That just means that employers have to hire more people in order to make more money. Am I Right? That’s how business works right? */sarc*

There is nobody more ignorant than a modern-day actor — nor as screwed up in the head.
