Sadly, I must report of yet another brazen attempt by a radical racist reichwinger to hijack an airliner & no doubt fly it straight into the Peoples House which has been narrowly thwarted by an observant Peoples servant at the TSA.
This time the perp tried to hide the weapon in her "monkey" which in itself is either racist or sexist or both.
Luckily, this time the weapon was confiscated just in time.
The bitter clingers are becoming more devious with every passing day. We need to double the TSA budget immediately to combat this deadly menace to a peaceful progressive society.
How Sulzberger and the NY Times downplayed the Holocaust
When our old spoof of the NYT front page (below) was first published, we were being chided for "going over the top" by suggesting that the prog media's denunciation of Israel's 2006 intervention in Lebanon was the equivalent of the New York Times saying in 1943 that the Jewish uprising against the Nazis in Warsaw was an overreaction. As it turns out, we were even more on target than we had imagined.
In this recent TED Talk video from October 30, 2013, a young historian from New York named Anna Blech makes a convincing indictment of Arthur Hays Sulzberger and the New York Times, who deliberately downplayed the Holocaust by concealing reports that could have saved thousands if not more during WWII.
This is more than just life imitating the People's Cube. And we here thought that the progs today have become too absurd to spoof. It now appears they had always been like this, they just know how to rewrite history too well.
We should be careful about what we spoof; a random satire may just turn out to be a hair-raising reality.
Ukrainian priest blesses sledgehammer that smashes Lenin
Ukrainian priest blesses sledgehammer before it's used to smash a Lenin statue to bits last night
It's not safe to be a communist monument in Kiev right now, where enormous crowds - the Ukrainian equivalent of Tea Party - are causing disturbances to the government, protesting the recent move away from Europe and back into the familiar embrace of Mother Russia.
Ukraine's capital Kiev gripped by huge pro-EU demonstration
Witnesses said a group of protesters toppled the statue of Soviet leader Lenin at the top of Shevchenko Boulevard using metal bars and ropes. Then they began smashing it up with hammers. Others stood by chanting "glory to Ukraine". Correspondents say the statue has symbolic importance as it underlines Ukraine's shared history with Russia. One opposition MP, Andriy Shevchenko, tweeted: "Goodbye, Communist legacy!"
Prime Minister Mykola Azarov compared the toppling of the statue to the Taliban's destruction of the giant Buddhas of Bamiyan in Afghanistan in 2001, Interfax-Ukraine news agency reported.
"War on monuments is always barbarity," he said.
The BBC's David Stern says the attack on the statue has heightened tension in Kiev.
In this sense, a very interesting reading make readers' comments under a similar article in the New York Times.
Apparently, many progressive US citizens think the Ukrainian protesters are the equivalent of the Occupy movement, calling to start something similar in America and stopping short of suggestions to topple the Raging Bull statue on Wall Street and erect Lenin statue in New York City instead.
Either that, or the People's Cube commenters moved to the New York Times in droves after a temporary suspension of the Cube by Google.
A one-way trip in Government Ambulance Service, or 'GAS' van
Rethuglican efforts to shut down the government of Dear Leader and deny the people of Amerika access to all of the free goodies of the Affordable Care Act resulted in more unintended consequences.
Rural hospitals are canceling services, laying off doctors and in some cases closing their doors. The loss of such medical services is often in areas mostly populated by ʻbitter clingers.ʼ
The need to transport these ʻclingersʼ to hospitals in larger cities has not escaped the all seeing eye of the Ministry of Health and Human Services. A Ministry spokesperson has announced the deployment of the new, state of the art ʻGovernment Ambulance Serviceʼ or ʻG.A.S. vans.ʼ According to the statement released by the Ministry “Our vans will get these people where they need to be.”
On December 4th this year, the People's Cube was blocked by most browsers and placed in Google Gulag, leaving the masses of wired workers and peasants without their beloved Party Organ. This was the second blow that the toiling communities of America and the world suffered in rapid succession - the first blow being, of course, the failed launch of the ObamaCare website.
And since we all know that the culprit in that case was, without doubt, George W. Bush, there is no doubt in our collective mind who done did it this time.
As a result, the glorious pages of our most truthful news source were replaced with intimidating messages and pictures warning the users of dire consequences to their livelihoods, personal data, and bank accounts. These were exactly the same security risks posed by the ObamaCare website. Coincidence? Don't make us laugh. There are no coincidences: only a steady, historically inevitable progress and the attempts to thwart it by reactionaries. And we all know that the mastermind of all reactionary conspiracies is George W. Bush. What more proof do we need?
The matching patterns didn't end there. The replacement screens told the web-surfing masses that they had to click on the dangerous link to find out what's behind it. The screenshot of what they saw on HealthCare.gov is above. An almost identical image was found on the People's Cube:
We all know who took up painting recently - George W. Bush. So who do you think manufactured these false images? No doubt Bush always knew how to do this but managed to keep it secret until the news leaked out.
The alleged reason for the block was "suspicious" behavior of some capitalist ads that appeared on the ...
It has just come to my attention that Chris Matthews has become an enemy of the People and needs to be denounced! (as well as having his beat vodka rations redistributed!)
Exclusive: Matthews Arrested After Drunken Racial, Homophobic Tirade
Posted on December 7, 2013 by Black & Right
New York — In one of the most explosive, drunken, racist and vile outbursts by a celebrity ever caught on tape, commentator Chris Matthews told the mother of his Latino maid that the way she was dressed would get her “raped by a pack of black teabaggers”. Matthews was later arrested after hurling homophobic epithets at passerbys on East 46th Street in Greenwich Village at approximately 3am, according to witnesses.

Comrades! We must denounce him and have him sent to a re-education camp to reform him of his non-progressive ways. Seriously submitted, Anon E. Mous
Obamacare is not only a Big F...ing deal, it is also a BIG Amen.
So that is the message to all nine of Ed Schultz's viewers. No doubt, comrades. Ed is definitely on to something. From you have to create the world to learn what's in it, to you have to pass the bill to learn what's in it, we are simply blessed to have Obamacare bestowed upon us....
