Big Surprise: Hate Spills Over at U.N. Conference on Racism and Tolerance

Below is a video of someone who’s said to be a member of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s entourage (joined by others, apparently) yelling “Zio-Nazi” at Elie Wiesel — a Nobel Prize winner and holocaust survivor (his parents and younger sister were murdered in a concentration camp).

Keep it classy, y’all:

Not-so-surpringly, the only head of state to accept the United Nations’ invitation to speak before the delegates at the U.N.’s Durban II “anti-racism” summit and “celebration of tolerance” was one of the biggest intolerant racists on the planet: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This is the preferred U.N. method. Chase off all the good guys so there are only bad guys left, and it really cuts down on the disagreements.

It isn’t difficult to understand why so many national leaders rightly boycotted yet another U.N.-sponsored joke.

Here’s more news that the U.N. might want to fret over at “Durban III” — if there is one: Sales of Hitler’s book, Mein Kampf, are skyrocketing in India, where it’s sold as a “business management guide.”

What could possibly go wrong?

Obama Celebrates Earth Day by Burning Thousands of Gallons of Fuel

President Obama is spending this Earth Day in Iowa.

President Obama will spend Earth Day in the state where his presidential ambitions took first root, Iowa. His victory in the 2008 Iowa caucuses over Hillary Rodham Clinton (and John Edwards!) vaulted him to the top of the pack, and he rarely looked back.

Today in Newton, Obama will focus on the green economy.

A distance calculator says that Washington DC is 866 miles from Newton, Iowa. According to a Sunday Mirror article that knocked Bush for burning tons of fuel to give an “energy conservation” speech, Air Force One averages one mile per gallon — and rest assured that’s a conservative, “once it’s airborne” estimate (and the only time a liberal will accept a conservative estimate is when it comes to their energy usage on Earth Day). Take into account that’s a round trip, and the president takes a backup plane — that’s 3,464 gallons of fuel just for the planes.

It seems like the best Earth Day message Obama could have given would have been from the Oval Office with all the engines and lights turned off.

Couple this with Gore’s private jet, huge homes and the apparent fact that Al’s own fatness is a major cause of global warming, and environmentalists are pretty much screwing the planet.

And if the caring stewards of the environment party today like they did on inauguration day in DC, the earth is really in trouble.

The Most Pro-Obama, Anti-Bush Star Trek Movie Review Ever!

About halfway through her Times-Online review of the new Star Trek movie, Debra Craine tells us all we really need to know:

Gone is the gloom of the last Star Trek film, Nemesis (2002), which seemed cast in the depressing shadow of George Bush’s post-9/11 America. The prequel, though conceived before the rise of Barack Obama, taps into the optimism of his presidency.

The film “taps into the optimism of the Obama presidency”? Ooh, I can’t wait! Captain Kirk will travel to Qo’noS and apologize to the Klingons for the past behavior of the Federation, and later refer to a book given to him by the Romulan leader entitled “101 Ways Earthlings Ruined the Galaxy” as “a nice gesture.”

After that, Kirk will sit through a Starfleet-bashing tirade by Khan Noonien Singh without flinching. And — this is the best part — if you want to see the movie, the tickets will be paid for by everybody who makes over $250,000 a year and/or charged to our unborn grandchildren! Count me in!

Watch for a rather awkward cameo appearance by Joe Biden as he enters the scene and says, “Stand up, Captain Pike!”

The original Captain Kirk helps sum up how I feel about Ms. Craine’s review:

Update:

It occurred to me that any optimistically Obamafied Star Trek movie should feature a touching romance between Nomad and Teleprompter:

Homeland Security Releases Updated List of Items Prohibited on Airplanes

Due to the ever-changing nature of terrorist threats as outlined in a recent Homeland Security report, DHS Director Janet Napolitano has updated the list of items that are now prohibited on all airplanes and has released the list to the Transportation Security Agency for posting in all U.S. airports.

Look for the updated sign the next time you’re at the airport and make sure you stay within the law:

Miss California Bashed For Honest Answer on Gay Marriage

The Miss America pageant is all about diversity, charity, and tolerance for the views of others. Just kidding — it’s about being a cookie-cutter liberal who parrots the prevailing views of the nuts and fruits who run the competition. Miss California just found that out.

“Heeeere she iiiisssss — Miiiisssss Hooomo-phoooooooobe“:

When asked by judge Perez Hilton, an openly gay gossip blogger, whether she believed in gay marriage, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, said “We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”

What’s funny is that Prejean was the runner-up in the competition, so those who direct the pageant know that the sort of honesty that leads to voicing opinions that the diverse and super-tolerant judges don’t want to hear needs to be put down quickly before it spreads. Enter Keith Lewis:

Keith Lewis, who runs the Miss California competition, tells FOXNews.com that he was “saddened” by Prejean’s statement.

“As co-director of the Miss California USA, I am personally saddened and hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman,” said Lewis in a statement. “I believe all religions should be able to ordain what unions they see fit. I do not believe our government should be able to discriminate against anyone and religious beliefs have no politics in the Miss California family.”

Then why was the question allowed to be asked?

Here’s a video of Miss California’s answer and Perez Hilton getting all snitty while the audience applaudes. The only thing Prejean did wrong was to say “no offense to anybody” after her opinion. Screw ’em… nobody on the other side ever apologizes for offending people. Otherwise, well done, Miss Cal:

Horror: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed Waterboarded Once for Every 16 People Murdered on 9/11

The New York Times has reported that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the “self-confessed mastermind” of the 9/11 attacks in which over 2,900 people were murdered, was waterboarded 183 times — or about once for every 16 victims.

This is wildly excessive, especially when you consider that most terrorists aren’t treated this harshly. Case in point: Timothy McVeigh was only executed once for every 168 people he murdered.

Naturally, the 9/11 attacks have resulted in more global attention finally being paid to some of the true evil in the world — I speak of course of the Central Intelligence Agency. The terrorist attacks have been a public relations disaster for the CIA, so, President Obama will visit the Agency in order to “boost morale”:

US President Barack Obama is to visit the CIA, in a bid to reassure staff stung by the release of memos detailing harsh interrogation techniques.

The visit follows comments by a former CIA chief who said the memos would limit its ability to pursue terrorists.

How will Obama boost morale? Insiders tell me he’s going to debut a fun character named “Patch Obama” for all the CIA employees. The feel-good, spirit-raising clown will also be featured on a slightly modified logo for the CIA that will bring a smile to CIA staff while offering them an important reminder:

Monday’s Column: Teabaggers on Parade

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily is on the media “coverage” of the tea parties last Wednesday.

You’ve no doubt heard the insults and ad hominem slurs fly — “teabaggers” is a big one that seems to give the left a chuckle. What explains this behavior? Give a read to “Tea isn’t their bag” for the whole story.

Also, over the weekend, senior White House advisor and man with the perfect 70’s porn-star name, David Axelrod, said this: “I think any time you have severe economic conditions there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that’s unhealthy.”

That’s a fairly generic and polite, albeit completely false, representation of tea-partiers. Most of the people who attended have jobs. This wasn’t a large group of disgruntled, unemployed, desperate people begging the government for help. You’ll find those people at Democrat rallies, Mr. Axelrod.

The media and many politicians simply can’t comprehend “protesters” whose main demand is to be left alone and for future generations to not be leveraged and born owing money.

Tea parties are those rare events where the people in attendance want nothing — it’s what they don’t want that is the issue. And if politicians and their handlers fear that this could “mutate into something that’s unhealthy” — then, according to Thomas Jefferson, that’s healthy.

Jackie Chan for Secretary of Obama’s China Cabinet!

We have a new rising star in politics — and not in a good way — but I won’t be surprised if Jackie Chan ends up with a high level post in Washington with this kind of “progressive” grip on freedom and capitalism:

Chan told a business forum in the southern Chinese province of Hainan that a free society may not be beneficial for China ‘s authoritarian mainland.

“I’m not sure if it’s good to have freedom or not,” Chan said Saturday. “I’m gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we’re not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want.”

The students crushed to death under tanks in Tiananmen Square and the who-knows-how-many political prisoners in the country would disagree with Chan’s position… if they could.

Chan’s a perfect fit for at least a seat in our current U.S. Senate. Either that or I’d suggest that President Obama create a new cabinet post — the China Cabinet — specifically so Chan can help the administration figure out how to apply these guiding principles to America — more than they already are. Obama has already praised China to the hilt. Why not completely follow through? Jackie could help.

Jackie Chan for Secretary of the China Cabinet!
