Conservative Street Artist Sabo Places Maxine Water's Head on "Halloween" Movie Billboard

Most of you know that Rep Maxine Waters, the Democratic Senator from loony California, has recklessly called on liberals to harass any official affiliated with President Trump's administration wherever they happen to be.

In her own malicious words at a recent rally:

"If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd." "You push back on them and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."
It's already happening. 

Then you have Hillary Clinton encouraging the left to be "uncivil." Eric Holder telling people "When they go low, we kick them!" Cue the laughter. As unhinged as the left has become, these are dangerous words that could eventually lead to someone getting killed.

So conservative street artist Sabo came up with the following:

There's a Halloween movie billboard in West Hollywood, on Pico Blvd, and apparently Sabo did a little redecorating, placing Maxine's head onto evil killer Michael Myers body adding the hashtags #UNCIVIL DEMOCRATS



I had a good ol' hearty laugh when I saw this.

Not so funny is that the comments from our leaders and former leaders are inciting people to do exactly what they are encouraging.

Since then, several notable Republicans have been confronted in public places, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, presidential senior adviser Stephen Miller and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
Never liked slasher films, and have never seen any of the Halloween franchises, and don't plan on seeing this one. But well done Sabo!

Kristen Bell Not Cool With The Prince's Kiss In Snow White - #MeTooFar

It appears that Fairy Tales are now the target of the liberal, feminist, p.c. movement. Yep. Apparently, people are taking offense to the kiss that the Prince bestows upon Snow White while she's "sleeping." Although I thought that was Sleeping Beauty? But what do I know- I never had kids, unless caregiving my 92-year-old mother qualifies as motherhood, and it's far too long ago to remember the details of the story. I do remember there were seven dwarfs and a poisoned apple, but that's about it.  Anyway, actress Kristen Bell, mother of two little girls, is not too happy about the apple or that kiss.

"Don't you think that it's weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?" Bell recalls asking her daughters. "Because you can not kiss someone if they're sleeping!"
Uh, hello Kristen, it's a Fairy Tale. Get a grip. Plus, both Sleeping Beauty and Snow White would have remained forever in limbo had not the Princes lovingly brought them back to the living with those kisses.

Keira Knightley has similar feelings about certain Disney stories. Her 3-year-old is forbidden to watch:

"Cinderella, banned because she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t. Rescue yourself, obviously," Knightley said. "And this is the one that I’m quite annoyed about because I really like the film, but… Little Mermaid. I mean, the songs are great, but do not give your voice up for a man. Hello!”
Uh, speechless.

Louis Farrakhan Compares Jews To Termites on Twitter, Twitter Does Nothing

Anti-Semitic hater Louis Farrakhan, head of the Nation of Islam, just posted a video of himself comparing Jews to termites while his congregation laughed, and Twitter won't do a damn thing about it because it doesn't yet violate its Terms of Use. Apparently, there is a policy on "dehumanizing language" but it hasn't been implemented yet. But a slew of conservative Twitter users have been locked out of their accounts, or suspended, for no good reason. Some yes, but most don't even have a clue why.  It happened to me the weekend of the Kavanaugh confirmation.

In the short video Farrakhan says:

“Now, white folk don’t like Farrakhan. Some of them respect me. But those who have been our deceivers, they can’t stand me. I’m not mad with you. In fact, to the members of the Jewish community that don’t like me, thank you very much for putting my name all over the planet because of your fear of what we represent, I can go anywhere in the world and they’ve heard of Farrakhan. Thank you very much. I’m not mad at you, because you’re so stupid. Don’t you know my teacher, Elijah Muhammed, taught me one day: he said, ‘There once was a donkey that fell in a ditch, and everybody came along and picked up a stone and threw it at the donkey. They threw so many stones til the ditch got filled up, and the donkey walked out.’ So my teacher said, ‘Brother, remember: every knock is a boost.’ So when they talk about Farrakhan, call me a hater, call me anti-Semite…I’m anti-Termite. I don’t know nothing about hating somebody because of their religious preference.”

The First Rapper Was a 1920s Soviet-Era Poet According To Russian Culture Minister

Al Gore invented the Internet, at least according to Al Gore. Now Vladimir Medinsky, Russia's culture minister, is laying claim to rap.  On October 16, he told a group of people at the Valdai Discussion Club that the first rapper was actually Vladimir Mayakovsky, a poet/actor during the 1920s and 1930s Bolshevik era.

He argued that whereas Russia did not invent ballet as an art form, it is now very much a Russian art. Same with rap.
"It's bothered me for some time now, I wanted to say, it infuriates me: this fascination of modern urban youth with rap, but when I try to dig into this business more closely, I'll chat with my son, listen to what he's listening to, and read, and I get the feeling that soon we'll be saying that rap is Russian art," Medinsky was quoted by Russian news agencies are saying. "Of course, it was born somewhere in America, but its flourishing occurred with us, of course."
Medinsky also said he told his son that Mayakovsky -- whose avant-garde poetry in the 1910s and 1920s made him a darling of the new Bolshevik leaders of the Soviet Union -- was in fact the first rapper.
"And now he's going around in class telling everyone that. And they're reading Mayakovsky and they all agree," he said.
Then again this is a man who has some other wacky ideas, including nefarious U.S. government ties to Netflix. You can read more about those on RFERL.

discussed the possibility that Netflix was a way for the US government plot to take over the world's tv sets.

And a short video of his oh-so-rapper-like poetry. Not.





Mayakovsky wound up committing suicide at the age of 36 possibly as a result of unrequited love.

One of his poems A Cloud In Trousers, from the prologue:

Your thoughts,
dreaming on a softened brain,
like an over-fed lackey on a greasy settee,
with my heart's bloody tatters I'll mock again;
impudent and caustic, I'll jeer to superfluity.

Of Grandfatherly gentleness I'm devoid,
there's not a single grey hair in my soul!
Thundering the world with the might of my voice,
I go by – handsome,
twenty-two-year-old.
Well, maybe this is a little rapperesque.

Pakistani Christian Woman Asia Bibi Still Waiting For Verdict On Final Death Penalty Appeal

Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman who has been rotting away in jail on Death Row since 2010 for blasphemy, will soon find out if the Islamist fanatics of that country will get their wish. Unbelievably, death for blaspheming Prophet Mohammad is still part of Pakistan's penal code.

Back in 2009 Bibi was working in the fields picking berries when an argument ensued after her Muslim coworkers took offense when she allegedly drank water from the same container. Or handled the bowl. Or something. Stories differ, so who knows what the actual truth is. But after the quarrel, the Muslim women ran to the local cleric claiming Bibi had blasphemed. Whether she did or not is irrelevant, it's a barbaric practice that should be abolished but continues to this day. In fact, hardliners are calling for stricter enforcement of the law.

 Over the past 8 years there have been a series of appeals all of which have failed. This was the final one, and though the Supreme Court has actually made a decision, they are waiting to announce the verdict. This could be good news, but considering the hardliners are gaining numbers, I tend to think it's not. According to the DailyMail:

On Wednesday Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan (TLP), a hardline religious political party -- which had a strong showing in nationwide elections earlier this year -- said in a press conference aired via YouTube that if she was freed the justices responsible would meet a "horrible" end.
That's not just an idle threat, people have been assassinated for trying to reform that part of Pakistani  law. And more often than not, angry mobs take the law into their own hands. Back in 2014 I wrote about a Pakistani Christian husband and wife who were beaten to death and then burned for allegedly desecrating a Quran. And a governor back in 2011 was killed for opposing the law and supporting Bibi.

There are some in Pakistan who believe that the blasphemy law needs to go the way of the dinosaurs, but few have the courage to lobby for change because they could wind up dead. That's what happened to Salmaan Taseer in 2011. The politician and businessman, who was governor of Punjab at the time, was murdered by Mumtaz Qadri, one of his bodyguards, because Taseer was very vocal about his opposition to the blasphemy law. Taseer was also asking for a pardon for Aasia Bibi. He was shot 27 times with a sub-machine gun. And who was considered the hero? Qadri. He even got a mosque named after him. In a middle-class neighbourhood, to boot.
She could ask the President for clemency, but there's no way she could remain in the country. She and her family would be sitting targets, but the hardliners are trying to prevent her from leaving.

Separately on Wednesday, a former spokesman for Islamabad's notorious Red Mosque moved to prevent Bibi from leaving the country by petitioning the capital's High Court to put her on the no-fly list.
Hard to believe that in the 21st century there are brutal, inhumane laws that still exist, supported by blood-lusting religious fanatics.

Halloweeners over 13 could get jail or fined for 'Trick or Treating'

It appears Halloween has now become a target of the scaredy-cat, bah-humbug scrooge crowd and age restrictions are now being implemented in some cities across the nation. Not only that, in Chesapeake, Virginia, anyone over the age of 12 could land up to a 6 month jail term, and a $25.00 to $100.00 fine. Yep, "Trick or Treating" could get a young teen a misdemeanour charge.  Newport News and Norfolk, also in Virginia, have similar restrictions.

Are 13 and 14-year-olds no longer considered kids? I remember trick or treating, many moons ago, when I was 16. They claim they are trying to prevent any mischief, but come on.

And that's not all. According to Care2 Causes:

A bunch of towns in North Carolina cut kids off by 12 or 13. In Upper Deerfield Township, New Jersey, trick-or-treaters can’t exceed 12 and there’s a strict curfew ending the festivities by 7 p.m. — it’s barely dark by then!

Care2 has a petition you can sign.

The Unhinged Left In Their Own Words- Latest RNC GOP Ad Video

The RNC's latest ad demonstrates just how "unhinged" the left has become, and it's getting  progressively worse with each Trump win. Unhingedness can eventually lead to violence- we're seeing it now in the anti-Kavanaugh protests. And remember what happened last year to Congressman Steve Scalise and several others, when an unhinged left-wing activist opened fire  on bunch of Republicans at baseball practice? They survived, but one day someone is going to get killed, and I will hold responsible every celeb, journalist and politician who encouraged others to violence.

Even California Rep Maxine Waters urged her supporters to harass Trump officials wherever they might happen to be. (See video below) That kind of encouragement is irresponsible and extremely dangerous, especially coming from a politician. Shame on her!

We've already seen Trump officials being harassed, demeaned, chased out of restaurants. I didn't realize there were so many, but here's a list that doesn't even include the latest on Ted Cruz.

What is happening to this country? I don't recall the right ever being as hateful as this during the 8 years of Obama.
