My favorite new fraction

Social Justice Warriors not amused by new meme

I wasn't aware of the NPC meme until I read about it at Ace of Spades. Now, Paul Joseph Watson elaborates...

Anything that upsets the progs, I'm for it.

What would you do with $38 million?

I don't know about you, but I think I'd use it to run for office as a faux "Kennedyesque" liberal in Texas (because a bonfire of money looks so pretty against the evening sky).

Fauxcahontas strikes back at Great White Father

Elizabeth Warren, long beset by skeptics over her claim to Native-American ancestry, released a DNA report that shows that she may be as little as 1/512th "indigenous" (another report suggests her Native-American ancestry may be as microscopic as 1/1,024th). Naturally, she's insisting that President Trump pay off on his $1 million bet.

But as the linked post indicates, most Indian tribes insist on anything from 1/16th to as much as 1/4th Native-American ancestry in order to claim tribal membership.

Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that I had more Tuareg or Ainu blood than Warren has Indian genetic material.

UPDATE: LOL! Elizabeth Warren may have less Indian blood than the average white american.

UPDATE II: Isophorone, in the comments - "Now I'm going to call her PICOHONTAS!"

UPDATE III: Dennis Miller Tweet - "Oh for god's sake! I'm pretty sure George Custer had more American Indian blood than that."

UPDATE IV: I've submitted Elizabeth Warren's claim to testing, also...

Oregon barrels toward its dystopian future

Friend and commenter Jeff provided some context on Oregon last week:
Western Oregon, primarily along the I5 corridor, is pretty much lost to the Kalifornia Liberals. Some other parts of Oregon are being overwhelmed by these clowns (Klamath Falls and Bend, mostly) as well. And don't get me started on Governor Kate Brown!

Eastern Oregon would split into another state in a heartbeat, if they could.

Portland, though, has been long in the socialist nightmare. Bush 41 dubbed it "Little Beirut". Recently, the school published a teacher's planning guide that, among other vile things, praises Che.

Recently, Portland's police force did precisely nothing to stop Antifa thugs who were "directing" traffic in the downtown area, and yesterday the same thugs brawled with rightist marchers protesting the mayor's "hands-off" approach.

Liberals are perfectly willing to let their cities turn into hell-holes, as long as they can continue to enjoy their own islands of relative safety in neighborhoods where I'm reasonably certain that the police have been told, emphatically, not to stand down. But the no-go zones are getting bigger, and even previously safe and clean areas are beginning to turn ugly (that's right, San Francisco, I'm looking at you). So-called "progressivism" has shown an unusually strong resistance to reality; we'll see how long that lasts (and the odds are that the acceptance of reality will be a long time coming; Detroit's a wreck, and Chicago's turning into a literal slaughterhouse, but the decline of these once-great cities is showing no sign of reversal).

Hey, all you Antifa thugs who think you're bad-ass because you wear black kerchiefs and ski goggles, and chase unarmed, confused old men down the street - this is what real resistance looks like...

So, heroes, why don't you do something genuinely impressive, like attack the 82nd Airborne HQ at Ft. Bragg? Go ahead, I'll wait.

Otis Rush, RIP

I'm a little late on this, but Chicago blues great Otis Rush passed away on September 29th.

Here's one of my Rush favorites, "So Many Roads, So Many Trains".
