“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Just Who The Hell Are You?


  1. Simple answer: You're African.

    1. My people lived as slaves in Egypt for 40 generations, does that make me an "african" too?

    2. Here is a photo of my fellow Jews

  2. and yet you deny the right of Jews, who you say are "european colonizers" to have their own self determination in land of israel.

    as you sit in Philadelphia, as a european yourself, occupying 1st American lands.

    If you and I have the right to be AMERICANS, then the jews have a right to their own self determination also.

    As we battle back and forth the truth is easy.

    The arab people, of many mixed ancestors, have 2 dozen nations across the middle east and occupy 899/900 of the lands and have made barren any "jews" from those lands.

    The Jewish people, of many mixed ancestors, have 1 nation in the middle east that occupies 1/900th of the lands and have a population of 1.2 million arabs which represents 20% of the population of the nation and more arabs than existed in the entire region just a short 70 years ago.

    You hate Israel. You defame, slander and attempt to de-ligimize it every day.

    I hate the violence directed at my fellow Jews by my cousins the Arabs, the arabs have dozens of nation in which to live and I do not advocate the elimination of these nations, unless they are threatening to destroy Israel and the Jewish people.

    You call the IDF "storm troopers".

    What is a storm trooper?

    Your usage of inflammatory labels abound.

    Nothing actually based in fact, just pure propaganda.

    Just like in the thread from Thursday you claimed:

    The difference between vicious murdering IDF Occupation Police killing protesting teenagers in occupied Palestine for throwing rocks and how civilized police departments handle the same situation

    Not the same situations, not even close. No critical thinking skills required. You do not even allow for the idea that the Palestinians are actually fighting a low intensity war....

    But it doesn't stop there...


    The headline from the video:

    "Palestinian girl was shot by Zionist occupation forces left bleeding without medical aid"

    And yet in that VERY video it shows and Israeli ambulance pulling up, putting her on a stretcher and giving her aid..

    Deuce, why do you lie?

    1. Not one of those uniformed thugs attempted to give that young girl aid. They are stormtroopers for Israel. That’s who pays the bills and sets the tone and procedures. They are drones of the state. You go on with your usual tripe and defend the undefinable saying that the police decisions are different for the Israelis. Of course. When you are exceptional, things are always different.

      You make these idiotic historical allegories. One of your favorite is that Europeans colonized the Americas beginning in the fifteenth century so the same laws , morals and ethics that were the norm then, are an excuse for the actions of Israel today. Only an intellectual cripple would try and disguise that absurdity as anything else but.

      If Israel started burning Palestinians at the stake because Pilgrims did it to apostates in Plymouth, it would be Ok with you.

      Every day, you show up here, dressed in your Super Jew cape, make a jump off the cliff of logic and land on your head.
      Quit wasting everyone’s time here and post your nonsense on your own site.

    2. Medics came and gave aid.

      Every day you lie, distort and slander Jews and Israel.

      One of my favorites is to point out that you accuse Israel of being an "euro colony". I simply point out your hypocrisy.

      Your justification for arab lynchings, stabbings, suicide bombings, IED and the like are quite amazing since you call the IDF "storm troopers"

      Quit wasting your time, Israel, the Jewish state, is here to stay, and while you piss around slandering it you do NOTHING to actually help the palestinians being terrorized by their own leaders and troops.

      I notice you are quiet as a mouse on the 7th century morals and standards of Hamas and Fatah...

      But I will concede one thing, you have taught me the only solution to Jew hatred like yours?

      Concealed Carry and a strong IDF.


  3. .

    My sister had her DNA run recently.

    Looks like the family is 47% English, 38% Eastern European (Polish), 8% Irish, and a conglomeration of other smaller parts.

    Given how well hung I am, I had assumed I had a large percentage of black in me. Evidently not. Likewise, my mother swore until the day she died that we had American Indian blood from long past in us but as it turns out I am not really Ruf's distant cousin.

    Go figger.


    1. .

      Surprisingly, I was not brought to tears by this knowledge as were some in the video.

      Other than as idle chit chat at family get togethers, who really gives a shit?


    2. I can imagine the tears of relief from finding one wasn't 100% Polish.

      And being 47% English at least gives you a fighting chance in life.

      The large hang comes from your personality, emotional, irrational, brutish, short, a I explained to you concerning the Greek statues the other day.

      It almost brings tears of joy to my eyes for you, too.

  4. The human race originated in Africa. All changes since then are simply adaptations to environment (geography, diet, etc.)

    1. You are not 100% correct in that but it's no big deal and too complex for you to compute.

    2. It makes him feel good and smug and superior, though, so don't pop his bubble.

      As it does to imagine himself the alternate energy champion in Mississippi, heating his water with fossil fuels and driving his gasoline powered vehicle.

  5. You you imply that we have to come up with a new basis for killing each other?

    1. We still have religion . . . . and, other ignorances.

    2. We still have Rufus.


  6. Trump Rally in Redding, California to start any minute.

    Will there be more riots by the leftist proto-totalitarians ?

    Tyne to Fox News for latest info....

    1. Tune to Fox News for latest info....

    2. It's Donald's Fault:

      "I think we all need to acknowledge that each of us -- presidential candidates, local leaders, and individual citizens -- have a responsibility for our own speech. It is regrettable that this has become a pattern for cities hosting Mr. Trump across the nation. "

      San Jose Mayor justifying those burning our flag while carrying the Mexican Fucking Flag.

      So glad so many are so happy to have given the country away.

    3. 100+ degrees....too hot for the thugs....peace reigns....

    4. I must be a worst case racist to be glad to be surrounded by Hawaiians, Filipinos, Japanese, Whites and Portagees instead of the Filthy Mexican Scum taking over the Mainland.

    5. La Raza, baby, they got the DNA for it.

    6. Higher Education in the New Millennium:

      Milo Yiannopoulos assaulted and threatened by BLM 'protesters' at DePaul University

    7. Hillary Blames Trump for Rally Violence: ‘He Created an Environment in Which It Seemed Acceptable’

      Trump bought the Mexican Flags and was instrumental in the formation of LA RAZA.

    8. Hawaii is really nice, and that's for certain.

    9. Pictures of Hawaii

    10. Can't recall the last time I read about a riot in Hawaii....

  7. More video of the anti-Trump riot in San Jose

    posted at 5:21 pm on June 3, 2016 by John Sexton

    Larry O’Connor did a roundup of news from the San Jose Trump rally early this morning but since then there have been a number of video reports showing just how bad it was. This wasn’t a protest with a few out of control people, it was a riot.

    First up, this report from ABC News is surprisingly good. It opens with reporter Tom Llamas, who was on the scene last night, saying, “This was one of the most violent scene I have ever witnessed…at times it seemed police had no control of the situation.” He added, “People were getting beat up right in front of them. And these were not clashes, these were pure attacks.”

    The Associated Press published this raw video showing one developing fist fight and then another angle on the young man in the red shirt. It’s hard to make out but is someone yelling “Kill him!” repeatedly in the background?


    RT has video of a man being sucker punched as a woman shouts “get him!” Someone else with a bullhorn is trying to lead a chant of “the people united will never be defeated” as the guy rolls on the ground. A bit later in the evening, people kick over police barriers and chant “F–k that wall!”:


    Finally this report has more video of the attacks on cars and a brawl in the middle of the street:


    This was not a protest it was a violent riot. The violence was not just aimed at property but at people. All the progressives who were understandably outraged by the roughing up of protesters at Trump events a few months ago ought to acknowledge that San Jose progressives have clearly topped that. This wasn’t a shoving match or one angry nut throwing a punch, this was an entire mob of angry nuts looking for people to terrorize and injure.

  8. Free Bleeding Movement

    Free bleeding received another gush of publicity (sorry) when Kiran Gandhi (pictured above) ran the London Marathon while free bleeding this past April. Gandhi wrote a blog post about her decision to forgo a tampon or pad while running:

    I RAN THE WHOLE MARATHON WITH MY PERIOD BLOOD RUNNING DOWN MY LEGS. I got my flow the night before and it was a total disaster but I didn’t want to clean it up. It would have been way too uncomfortable to worry about a tampon for 26.2 miles...I ran with blood dripping down my legs for sisters who don’t have access to tampons and sisters who, despite cramping and pain, hide it away and pretend like it doesn’t exist. I ran to say, it does exist, and we overcome it every day.

    1. .

      Chicks, ya gotta love em.


    2. .

      As one wag put it in referring t some of these feminists, "Stupid is the new clever".


    3. You run 26 miles then with a big cigar up your arse and see how you like it, Miss Ogy Nist.


  9. Don't worry folks, Rufus and the Liar in Chief say it's all good.


    Perhaps This Was a Bad Week to Chastise People for Doubting the Economy

    The economy added only 38,000 jobs in May and the workforce shed almost half a million people.

    To summarize the sentiments of most analysts, not great.

    The Wall Street Journal has more:

    "Not even a magician can take this number and make it sound good," said Quincy Krosby, market strategist at Prudential Financial.

    The unemployment rate, which is obtained from a separate survey of U.S. households, fell to 4.7% in May from 5.0% in April as fewer people looked for work. Economists surveyed by the Journal had predicted payrolls would rise by 158,000 and the unemployment rate would hold steady.

    The decline in the unemployment rate was driven by 458,000 people leaving the workforce. The labor-force participation rate fell to 62.6% in May, down 0.2 percentage point from April.

    "This was an unqualified dud of a jobs report," said Curt Long, chief economist at the National Association of Federal Credit Unions …
    This is not to say that American jobs are vanishing like Marty McFly and company in that photo from Back to the Future. But maybe it was poor timing this week to say those in "cars and bars and VFW halls all across America" listening to talk radio and cable news have a distorted view of the economy.

    1. After 7 1/2 years, I have noticed Ruf no blames 'the Bush economy'.

      Muhammad Ali is near death, family gathered around.

      Good guy and wonderful boxer.

      My departed Aunt loved him so.

    2. Those 'in the know' realize that the housing crash was caused by Bwany Frank & Friends, which Bush had warned about in all 8 of his State of the Union Addresses.

  10. Who the hell am I ?

    Not totally sure yet, but I know I'm not my genes.

  11. The Third Battle of Fallujah

    1 June 2016

    The third battle of Fallujah is on.

    The assault began in the early hours on Monday when the Iraqi Army and Iranian-backed Shia militias stormed the city in Iraq’s Anbar Province under British and American air cover to expel ISIS once and for all.

    Brace yourself for atrocities.

    More than 300,000 people live there. The vast majority have fled, but roughly 50,000 are still trapped inside. ISIS is holding hundreds of families and using them as human shields.

    Human shields can work against Western armies that hold their fire when possible to avoid killing civilians. The Iraqi Army doesn’t care about killing civilians, and the Iranian-backed militias care even less.

    ISIS is also deploying suicide bombers, including suicide car bombers.

    Organizations and diverse as Human Rights Watch and the US Department of Defense are worried about war crimes, not only from ISIS—which commits war crimes as a matter of course and of policy—but also from “our” side.

    Last year, Iraqi and Iranian-backed forces took back the ISIS-held city of Tikrit, and they’ve been under investigation for war crimes ever since. Allegations include the massacring of civilians, torturing and summarily executing captives, and displaying human heads.

    The US and Britain are in a terrible spot here. There is no getting around this: we’re militarily assisting gangs of vicious murderous bastards. The only reason it’s even remotely defensible is because the guys on the other side are even more vicious—the most vicious, in fact, in all of the world.

    It’s safe to say at this point that ISIS-held territory in Syria and Iraq is the most oppressive place on the face of the earth. Cities like Fallujah and Raqqa make even North Korea seem mild.

    People have been eating grass to survive.Executions of civilians for “crimes” as minor as shaving and smoking cigarettes is rampant, and residents are forced to watch. One resident says ISIS videotapes the executions and personally delivers DVDs to every house in the city.

    ISIS is even forcing men to commit domestic violence. “Our husbands and fathers were pushed to discipline us,” an Iraqi woman told Al Jazeera. “Husbands would be forced to hit their wives for not wearing the niqab properly. If our men did not obey the orders of ISIL, they would face punishment.”

    “Our biggest fear was to be caught by ISIL fighters,” she added. “They have no mercy; they will execute anyone whom they catch or even suspect of trying to flee.”

    This is the third time in twelve years Fallujah has faced all out war. It was relatively quiet for a brief period after the US invaded in 2003. There wasn’t much looting. The mayor was pro-American. Resentment simmered, though, and then exploded in 2004 when a mob murdered and mutilated four Blackwater security contractors and strung their bodies up on a bridge.

    The US military went in to clear the city the following month, but for political reasons they pulled back before finishing the job. Al Qaeda in Iraq, led by the psychopathic Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, gained total control of the city and imposed Taliban-style rule on the populace.

    If something like this was going to happen in only one place in Iraq, Fallujah be it. “Fallujah is strange, sullen, wild-eyed, badass, and just plain mean,” Bing West wrote in his book, No True Glory. “Fallujans don’t like strangers, which includes anyone not homebred. Wear lipstick or Western-style long hair, sip a beer or listen to an American CD, and you risk the whip or a beating.”

    Fallujah has been Iraq’s no-go zone since at least the time of the British in Mesopotamia. Even back then, everyone was warned to stay out, and it’s where Saddam Hussein recruited many of his regime’s most brutal enforcers.

    1. I spent a month there during the war, and the only thing I can say in its favor is that it’s only the second-most broken and hopeless place I’ve ever seen. (The first-most is Baghdad, which is better educated and more open to the world, but it’s also where adjacent Sunni and Shia neighborhoods can hardly stop car-bombing each other even when they’re separated by walls.)

      After losing the first battle of Fallujah, American soldiers and Marines went back in and fought the massive epic battle known as Al-Fajr, or Dawn.

      Al Qaeda in Iraq proved itself so monstrous that the residents of Fallujah, who surely ranked among the most anti-American people in the world, forged an alliance with the hated enemy superpower to vomit the terrorists out.

      The Iraqis claim they are not going to stop until they expel ISIS completely. If they manage to pull it off—and at this point that’s still a big if—they’d better learn from their earlier mistakes. ISIS would never have managed to take over that city two years ago if residents didn’t initially see its fighters as lesser evils compared with Baghdad’s central government. That’s extraordinary in and of itself since Fallujans had plenty of experience already with Al Qaeda in Iraq, which was just ISIS under a different name and different management.

      Fallujah is a Sunni Arab city in a country where Sunni Arabs makes up only around 20 percent the population. The previous Shia prime minister Nouri al-Maliki ruled Iraq like an Iranian-backed warlord hell-bent on subjugating the minority. Incredibly, compared to him, ISIS looked sort of okay and tribal leaders opened the door.

      It was the worst decision in the long history of deplorable decisions in that city. Only in the feverish dreams of insanely bigoted anti-Shia reactionaries was Nouri al-Maliki even as remotely bad as ISIS, let alone worse.

      Maliki governed badly. No question about it. He purged Sunnis from the government, jailed dissidents, spuriously accused his political opponents of being terrorist supporters, and aligned himself with Iranian-backed militias. We should all be glad he’s out of power. But more oppressive than ISIS? Please.

      It’s not clear that any Shia-led government will ever seem legitimate in the eyes of many of Iraq’s Sunnis—especially not if Baghdad re-takes Fallujah with Iranian backing. What drives Sunni sectarianism more than anything else is the perception that Iraq’s Shias are in cahoots with Tehran.

      On the other hand, ISIS is so unspeakably awful that the residents of Fallujah and other Sunni cities in Iraq may see how wrong they were when they thought they’d be better off oppressed by “their own” than by the other.

      On the third hand, they should have known better already. The Sunnis of Anbar Province suffered under ISIS before, and apparently they learned nothing from the experience.

      So who knows where this is heading? I certainly don’t.

      I will say this, though. If Baghdad and its Iranian friends manage to purge ISIS in Western Iraq, they’d better get the hell out and stay out when they’re finished or a fourth battle of Fallujah is all but inevitable
