Saturday afternoon round-up and Open Thread

Victorian posy of pansiesHeading out, so here’s a quick download of interesting stuff:

We missed a solar bullet a couple of years ago. The sun would have done a much better job even than Islamists of knocking the world back to the Stone Age.

** 2 **

It is unbelievable what people can do with plants.

** 3 **

A modern Russian fairy tale about the upside down world in the Middle East.

Even the dictionaries are politically biased.

Fundamentally, no matter the names they give themselves (Al Qaeda, ISIS, the Taliban, etc.), they’re one big army, and the enemy is us.

Antisemitic revolution at home

Liberals are funny

    A few open threads back I pointed out that Apple dictionary listed the definition of fascism as “right-wing”

    And I found this at the Library of Congress a few years ago. Not biased? It is an exhibit of a letter sent by the NAACP to President Woodrow Wilson (D) regarding his segregation of the federal workforce

    “A Letter to President Woodrow Wilson

    In 1913 President Woodrow Wilson introduced segregation into federal government agencies. Black employees were separated from other workers in offices, restrooms, and cafeterias. Some were also downgraded; others discharged on fictitious grounds. Oswald Garrison Villard met privately with President Wilson to recommend the appointment of a National Race Commission to counter the new discriminatory policies. When President Wilson refused, the NAACP released this open letter of protest to the press. Segregation in the federal government persisted through the next three Republican administrations.”

    Hmmm, they only mention party in the last sentence. But for “historians”, shouldn’t they be more precise. Was it the next 3 Presidential administrations? The next 4, 8, 12, 30 years? This was before the presidential term limits.

    Regarding the photo of the demonstration in Chicago – I’ve noticed that when there are ‘competing’ demonstrations for and against Israel, those who are protesting in favor of Israel truly support Israel and are there protesting for Israel, not against Hamas or the Palestinians. Those opposing them are divided between supporting Hamas/Palestinians and those who hate Israel. The anti-Israel demonstrators are generally angry and they are filled with hate towards all Jews – and that basic difference explains so much to me.

    You know the Universal order is pissed when even Hussein’s mere existence can get the Sun to try to kill us. You see?
