Wednesday morning round-up (and Open Thread)

Victorian posy of pansiesTo President Obama, the American military isn’t about defending America against her enemies. After all, why would he want to do that? Our chickens are coming home to roost and we deserve what’s coming to us. Instead, per Obama, our American military is all about addressing victim identity within America’s own borders. Obama’s been carrying out that project very successfully, too.  The result of his efforts is that old-fashioned troops who actually think the military’s job is protecting our country — and who dislike the Left’s frantic attempts to fix something that, insofar as its primary purpose is concerned, wasn’t broken — are bowing out, with the Navy leading the way.

Bless his heart (and I mean that without any sarcasm): Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has pointed out, as did Dennis Prager, that racism isn’t the only issue involved in the Donald Sterling kerfuffle. Sterling’s privacy rights were grossly violated, which is an issue that should concern every American.

Apparently the catch phrase at America’s finest institutions, at least if you’re white, is that you have to “check your privilege at the door.” One white university student has issued a polite, fact-filled Eff You to the racist (against whites) PC police.

And lastly, three images that caught my eye:

It took me a millisecond too long to see what the Nazi on the right held in his right hand.  Murder is easy if you're an antisemite.

Al Gore loved his "frog in boiling water" analogy.  It's certainly correct when it comes to Americans and the rising fuel prices the MSM ignores.

But let's remember that, in America, there are still good people and for that we should be grateful.

But we can’t let ourselves forget that, in America, there are still good people and for that we should be grateful.

    There’s so much wrong with that first picture. The one holding the gun, the one holding the child, the one taking picture. 
    How can that have ever happened to even one child much less the millions of others? Not just millions of Jews but millions of other innocents that have been aborted or exterminated regardless of age. Its a truth that can’t be lived with but has to buried some way to prevent being overcome by the thought that any of it could have been or that it is happening some where some place at this moment.

      Only weaklings and naive children are overcome by the strength of their emotions in the war for humanity.
       
      Some of us have looked deep into the darkness of evil and faced the cost for doing so. Not everyone was weak enough that they desired to “bury” things because they couldn’t stand the sight of them.
       
      It demonstrates the limits of individual strength when they can’t live with it. They don’t want to live with the knowledge, the Truth that blinds all who come close to enlightenment. But it does not demonstrate the limit of humanity or of all humans, just those who are unable to exceed their limits.

    Before the uniforms and gun registered, I thought the first photo was of soldiers comforting a crying child. Now I feel rather sick.
     
    That last photo is wonderful, though.

    <B>With the cuts in the military numbers by Democrats in order to fund their health care and bankaccount initiatives, people will soon see what an army stretched to the breaking point really looks like. As opposed to the illusion they were sold during the Iraq conflict.</b>
     
    Now isn’t that an interesting prophecy. The US military is certainly getting “stretched” and not in a good way as happened during Iraq 2003-6. I had old suspicions that the US military, which many touted as a bastion of American patriotism and individual will, was going to get carved up by the Left sooner or later. Now we’re at the “later” and it will now be sooner.
