The Boyfriend is a movie musical from the eighties, kind of a bomb (pardon the unintended, yet appropriate pun) based upon a hit play, and among its songs is a vocal piece entitled, "It's Much Nicer in Nice," referring, of course, to Nice, France.
Today, things are no longer nicer in Nice, not nice in France or anywhere else in Western Europe. Those who persist in making no connection whatsoever to radical Islam -- hello, loyal Democrats and others of a politically correct bent -- in the United States are, nevertheless, on the death list, like it or not. Per the usual playbook, French government officials, like members of the U.S. political class, are slow to blame radical Islam for the latest tragedy.
(Side note: A new book entitled Deception dives deep into the Benghazi incident, its findings compatible with those of the Benghazi Select Committee, and is said to be well-researched. While Obama, Hillary and all the usual minions agonized over how to make events appear anything BUT extremist Muslim-related on that fateful night, it is alleged they were more concerned with maneuvers concerning You-Tube and Google than in sending help to rescue our people. The author reportedly makes a case for the U.S. arming Syrians through a back door approach, and doing so with the same radical bunch which murdered U.S. personnel in Benghazi.)
Who needs radical Islam to kill off free speech in the United States when we have the FCC? Anybody in search of one more reason to stand behind a GOP vote in November and avoid Democrat sedition at all costs should tremble with fear and anger at a story appearing in the June 30 Washington Examiner. As reported by Paul Bedard:
Democrats targeting content and control of the Internet, especially from conservative sources, are pushing hard to layer on new regulations and even censorship under the guise of promoting diversity while policing bullying, warn commissioners from the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Election Commission.
“Protecting freedom on the Internet is just one vote away,” said Lee E. Goodman, a commissioner on the FEC which is divided three Democrats to three Republicans. “There is a cloud over your free speech.”
Freedom of speech on the Internet, added Ajit Pai, commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, “is increasingly under threat.”
Pai and Goodman cited political correctness campaigns by Democrats as a threat. Both also said their agencies are becoming politicized and the liberals are using their power to push regulations that impact business and conservative outlets and voices.
Almost eight years later. . .President Obama gets serious about pretending he cares about the race issue. Great that he was having a hug with David Muir on ABC-TV last night, but he just seemed rather befuddled about why he was even present for the TV cameras. Maybe 'cause he wasn't raising campaign money for Queen Hill'. So much hemming and hawing.
Which reminds me of the ESPY Awards this week, when several black athletes of star quality stood to speak about race. My impression? I'll defer to the excellent comments earlier in the week by Charles Barkley. He encapsulated important everything in a few words.
Tesla's and other self-driving cars: Do you among the electronic genius invention class ever -- ever? -- consider how worthless your pricey technology can become in a split second, should EMP effects occur? All it takes is enemies with nukes, a mutually assured satellite destruction event or the sun itself, and we're gonna be begging for simplicity. (Pokemon Go isn't going to help, either.)
Other Stuff: Other news stories catching our cyclopean eye recently involves the very real possibility that health insurers, their profit margins stung by the un-workability of Obamacare, are perched to ask Congress for an enormous taxpayer bailout. Like nobody older than an eighth-grader couldn't see this coming from the start?
We also note that at a recent festival in Sweden Muslim men were raping girls as young as 12, and other instances have surfaced throughout Western Europe. The U.S. and other nations must find a way to deport human slime, especially the military-age young men from crap-hole countries who invade nations with a warm stupid welcome on the part of clueless government leaders. There's obviously a reason why most Middle Eastern nations want nothing to do with housing these bastards. And no, this monstrosity cannot be cured with jobs and hopes for a better life -- these folks are born not only ignorant and brain-washed, but destined to kill and overwhelm cultures as well. Nations of the current century, wake up or risk being thrown back by the throwbacks.
