Kulaks raising their banners high

Kulaks raising their banners high

It’s not just Ray Gaster who is raising the “I built this” banner.

Readers have forwarded photos they just took of other businesses with similar signage.

From Sara:

Hi @Legal Insurrection. Here’s what a sign business in Boca Raton, Florida is prominently displaying.

Eight minutes ago in 91-degree post-Isaac sunshine.

And this one from Griff taken a couple of days ago outside an auto body shop in Houston:

This auto body shop in NW Houston always has something entertaining on their marquee.

Love your blog.

I warned you about these kulaks, didn’t I?

Update 8-30-2012: Reader Nancy writes:

I took a photo of this sign at a family owned jewelry store in Prescott, Arizona.

Please add it to your collection if you like.

Keep up the great work!

Ah, those occasional ejaculations of truthful views by the Obami are KILLERS…!!!

“You didn’t build that!” May be the snot heard ’round the world.

Just think. It was Elizabeth Warren’s unwitting contribution to good government that became a key element in taking down an incumbent president. It would be ironic, except that Cherokees don’t believe in irony.

Question for Grace Slick and the rest of the Jefferson Starship: Did you or did you not build that city on rock ‘n’ roll?

Small business is an endangered species under Obama, except instead of being protected, they are being pushed out of their lands. Obama tries to force unionization on them, tries to regulate them to death, and at the same time, chastises them for not recognizing they deserve no credit for their efforts.

Then Obama adds on expensive health care mandates, but grants exemption to his friends.

“If you find yourself in a fair fight, you didn’t plan your mission right.” Clearly Obama is at war against capitalism, and the left does not play fair.

Well, look for Obama’s apparatchiks and Cheka thugs to come around real soon.

Great, now we’re Kulaks. Of course, that’s being in great company.

Recall what Lenin said early on in his dictatorship, (A poor paraphrase version!): Take the first 10-Kulaks in each village and shoot them. The rest will fall in line afterwards.

Isn’t that essentially what Obama said when he started his rule?

    Oops, forgot to mention that great Christamas Day, 1989, in Romania. That day Romanian Kulaks regained their freedom

    I don’t think the analogy is all that good since the working class (proletariat) below the Kulaks are in an uneasy? alliance with them.

    The Left has of course always hated the “Kulaks” (as defined here) with a passion, but after they couldn’t convince the working class that the Vietnam War was wrong it too became their self-declared enemy, even if they dress it up in the Marxist concept of false consciousness. Because in practice, they know that changing that “consciousness” requires re-education camps and killing off 10% (their estimate) of the population who refuse to change their minds.

These guys are to be held in high regard. They have brass balls.

Ah yes… Insurrection is in the air along with the sweet smell of victory, (eviction), in November!

A 1 1/2 ago I began attending meetings in a dem , poorish , mixed neighborhood of Pueblo. When I addressed them then tho they were not happy with dems they had little trust for the GOP. They recoiled when I said I attended T party rallys. When I attended last weeks meet about 6 Occupy types came to make a presentation. They asked to take pictures. I told them to be sure and get a friend and I. The room laughed as they know he and I. The local GOP Chair is a friend and had 4 candidates there to speak. They were well recieved. Occupy left early. The candidates stayed. This is what it takes. The regular Pueblo GOP is maybe starting to get that. It took years of work by some of us formerly outside the party to get us here. Ps. Occupy will not go away. Soros types have deep pockets.

Prof, I am a kulak. I had a pretty darn good job before Obama was elected. Took my money out of retirement fund, took 25% hit, invested in gold and then went back to home state. I have been blogging and being Breitbart ever since. Doing odd jobs to maintain the status quo and not contributing at all. Depending on what happens, if Romney wins and does not change course or if Obama wins, I am heading somewhere… do not know where yet. Keep up the great work my fellow kulaks!

There was a meeting of my church’s respect life committee this morning. On the way out I noticed an Anyone but Obama sticker on the back of our pastor’s old pickup truck. That’s unusual though it should be noted he seldom drives the pickup while he is in his Roman collar. He mostly uses it to get to a cabin a little over an hours drive away where he unwinds. However the truck IS kept were most parishioners have to drive past it to get to the parking lot.

I want to feel giddy at this, yet I feel the need to hold my breath until January 20, 2013.

Obama? Я так не думаю

“This auto body shop in NW Houston always has something entertaining on their marquee.”


From Google Street View you can see another Obama quote (partially digitally obscured or blurred by Google) from Mike Riner’s sign

Obama: I’d like higher gas prices, just not so quickly.
(6/11/2008. Obama’s own words)

Not Kulaks, professor. It is the Yeomanry who are raising their banner.

Like others, being called a kulak isn’t a terribly comforting thought. Kulaks thought that just because they fed all of mother Russia that their contribution would protect them. Instead of protecting them, their contribution made them targets because power is more important than actually caring for the population’s well-being. So even though it makes no sense at all, the so-called progressives (fascists and socialists, really) would take pleasure in crushing any peaceful revolt of kulaks even if it caused mass misery.

Which is why the Democratic party in its current incarnation is evil.

The Kulaks were plowed under by tractors (sometimes literally),
because Stalin no longer needed their manpower.

‘Yeomanry’ works well, but doesn’t have the’kulak’ frame wherein “you didn’t build that!” means “you don’t have a right to that!” means “property is theft!” means “you are a criminal!” means “you’ve been warned!” means “you’re living on borrowed time!”
