From the ASTLOD Dept. 19 July 2010 – Charles Johnson on AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu

[From The Diary of Daedalus’ Ain’t Seen The Light Of Day Department, the following untitled draft by Heracles, 19 July 2010, was a cut and paste of an LGF post in text only, with no additional commentary. The text has been replaced with a screencap of Charles Johnson’s original post of the same date with embedded links and my commentary below. – Briareus]



Wow. Not only did Johnson label/libel Sheriff Paul Babeu as a racist, he attempted (and failed) to brand Sen. John McCain one as well just for talking with him. Here’s Johnson’s proof – A post from Media Matters that sources the Southern Poverty Law Center [cached]:

AZ Sheriff Babeu appears on a white nationalist program, invites listeners to join his “posse”

Here’s the link to the YouTube video featuring both Sheriff Babeu and Senator McCain:

“Complete The Danged Fence.”

Funny how some things from years ago are just as relevant today, unlike Charles Johnson. (BTW, the author of that MM piece, Eric Hananoki, was a staffer for The [defunct] Al Franken Show. Go figger).

Two years later Johnson was still at it, and Daedalus posted about it here.

Charles, you’re a mess.

      Earlier today we published an article on the right wing bloggers (Jim Hoft and Chuck C. Johnson, who is NOT ME) who recklessly and dishonestly named the wrong person as the suspect in the Charlotteville car attack on anti-Nazi protesters. Tonight we can report that the man they framed has legal counsel — and his lawyer is planning to go after these website owners with “the full power of the law.”

      Hoft took the story down 5 minutes after posting it.

        I watched that all unfold as it happened. Car registration was traced to the kid’s father who was a Trump supporter by the leftist people first.They started it. Then the rightist people found out that the car was given to Joel on his 16th birthday and he was a lefty…

        It went downhill from there…..

    The Left is going to milk this yahoo’s car-crashing incident for some time, and the MSM is going to support the false narrative that this idiot was created by Trump and the RethugliKKKan Party. The truth is more like the opposite, of course. Somebody has already encapsulated most of my feelings on the issue in a nice rant at AoS — I would just like to add, the video I watched this morning of a black college student in Ann Arbor, the most liberal city in the Midwest, saying she’s “afraid to walk down the street because of all the racism going on because of Trump,” made my blood boil to the point where I nearly wanted to chase her with my car. j/k?

    Take it away, JJ Sefton:

    Good morning kids. The good news is the hair-trigger tensions on the Korean peninsula are off the headlines for the time being. The bad news is, violent, racists rioting in the streets of Charlottesville, VA and elsewhere have taken its place. Let me say in no uncertain terms that what happened on Saturday is the direct result of the rhetoric spewed out from the cake-holes of the ex-president, ex-attorney general, scores of racialist crackpots and terrorists in politics and the media and in virtually every college campus across the country. Just last week alone, Maxine Waters opined that it might be time to form a blacks-only political party. La Raza, literally “The Race” preaches the reconquest of the southwest and the banishing of all non-Latinos. And on and on and on.

    Whether they are “neo-Nazis,” the KKK, the Aryan Nations etc. etc., who they are and what they believe in have absolutely nothing in common with who we are and what we believe in (and please do not get me started on Timothy McVeigh). Racism, racialism and identity politics were, are and always will be the stock in trade of the Left. The attempt to paint what happened over the weekend as the fault of President Trump, his supporters, conservatives and others is a blood-libeling of epic proportions. Bereft of ideas, with a record of societal and economic destruction spanning decades and culminating in the lost years of 2009-2016, the only thing they have left is to lash out violently, foment hatred and use an incident that in fact was started by the direct inheritors of their own ideology as a pretext and distraction to somehow regain relevancy if not the levers of power. This is going to be milked for all its worth to further delegitimize us and our agenda. What is even more detestable is that the NeverTrumpers will join forces with the Left to use this as a “see-we-told-you-so” moment.” I’m looking directly at your fat f**king face John Podhoretz.

    Lest we forget, it was a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat who attempted to assassinate Steve Scalise and a couple of dozen other unarmed Republicans at a softball practice, while only a few days ago a rabid anti-Trump activist shot and killed a GOP leader in PA and the reaction from all quarters on the left has been nothing or worse; blame the victims.

    I am sick to death of this. And frankly, I am sick to death of the statement and proposition of “condemning the violence on both sides.” Our side had nothing to do with what happened at Charlottesville. There is no moral equivalency, because there is no Left-Center-Right paradigm. You either believe in the principles of America as founded or you do not and want to seek its dissolution and/or destruction “by any means necessary.” The latter is the Left, and I reject the premise of their arguments now and always. “F**k you. War.”

    The reckless driver of the Charlottesville melee turns out to be a mental case who’s been on meds to control his anger since he was a young teen. Isn’t that interesting? At the same time, I’m wondering why the Left isn’t using this incident to push for the banning of assault vehicles.

    James Alex Fields was allegedly so threatening and violent his own mother repeatedly called 911 on him.
    TMZ has obtained 911 records from a police agency in Kentucky from 2010 and 2011, when Fields was 13 and 14 years old.
    In one incident, a friend of Fields’ wheelchair-bound mom called 911, saying the boy was threatening his mother, spit in her face and stood behind her with a 12-inch knife. The mother wanted her son taken away and he was arrested and then detained as a juvenile.
    In another incident the mother called 911, saying she told her son to stop playing video games and he exploded in anger, smacking her in the head and putting his hand over her mouth. She locked herself in the bathroom and called 911, telling the dispatcher he was on meds to control his anger.
    In yet another incident, the mom called 911, saying Fields was being threatening toward her and she was scared.
    Fields mowed down 20 people Saturday at the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, killing 1.

    Still slogging through “Hue 1968,” which is a great book but kind of a quagmire I wish would be over. Tough to read about the Bad War, the one we lost, and the horrible price that was paid on both sides over ideology and the Cold War (which we ended up winning, but not due to our efforts in ‘Nam). I don’t like criticism of our military any more than most of us here do, but it’s good to know our military learned a LOT from the Vietnam War, which has been applied in subsequent engagements. Should we have learned even more from that shitshow? Possibly.

    The pic above is quite a scene, eh? Looks like a painting, designed to illustrate War as Hell on Earth. It was part of a famous Life Magazine pictorial that helped turn the American people against the war. The guy who looks dead with his shirt off ended up living a great life, and his son fought two tours in Iraq. Bowden tells the story of Alvin Grantham very well in the book. I found the story in magazine form here, and it’s well worth a read:

I couldn’t find it on their website http://milmag.com/

      • Octopus says:

        There’s definitely a lot of sick-making anti-Americanism on the Left, before, during and after Vietnam. There’s a case to be made that we could have followed up the Tet Offensive, which cost the North dearly and was a failure for them in every way except as a worldwide PR victory, with a redoubling of our efforts and an investment in men and resources greater than what we expended in WWII, gone after the North village-by-village, tree-by-tree, spider-hole by spider-hole, committed to staying there indefinitely as an occupying force — is that really what America wanted? I don’t think so. Vietnam wasn’t worth it strategically, let alone in terms of human cost.

        Finally finished the book — glad that’s over. Now, if we could only figure out a way to leave Afghanistan in the next century or so…

    We passed miles and miles of useless wind farms on our travels out west this summer, and every time I made a comment about the waste and negative results of this fatuous, cynical game being played by the eco-gamesters. My wife got kind of tired of it, to be honest. Okay, we get it. 😆

    One episode that stands out for both of us, though, was the pre-dawn driving east from Amarillo where we were suddenly seeing a vast collection of red lights, all blinking in unison, for miles on end. At first I thought it was an airport, then a collection of traffic lights gone haywire, and then I roused the wife to google it. It’s the red lights on top of every steenkin’ windmill, to ward off airplanes I suppose, and for some reason they all have to blink together. It’s really weird.

      Found out the reason they all have to blink in unison is that they are a product of groupthink. I should have intuited this immediately, but I guess I’m on the outside of that hive-mind.

    Hamas-linked CAIR calls for destruction of every Confederate memorial

    AUGUST 15, 2017 12:03 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER 27 COMMENTS

    Besides removing supposed temptations to idolatry, Islamic supremacists want to ruin the artifacts of non-Muslim civilizations because doing so testifies to the truth of Islam, as the Qur’an suggests that ruins are a sign of Allah’s punishment of those who rejected his truth:

    Many were the Ways of Life that have passed away before you: travel through the earth, and see what was the end of those who rejected Truth. (Qur’an 3:137)

    This is one of the foundations of the Islamic idea that pre-Islamic civilizations, and non-Islamic civilizations, are all jahiliyya — the society of unbelievers, which is worthless trash. Obviously this cuts against the idea of having some historical memory and respect for where we have been as an aid to understanding and guiding where we may be going. The non-Muslim past is to be regarded solely with disgust and contempt, and the memory of it erased.

    This impulse is yet another element of the alliance of Muslims such as those of Hamas-linked CAIR and Leftists. Both demonize all disagreement and dissent from their positions, and do not debate their opponents, but instead defame them as morally evil. And in this call from Nihad Awad, Hamas-linked CAIR joins the Left in wanting all traces that anyone ever thought differently from the acceptable current orthodoxy be forever effaced.

    “Council on American-Islamic Relations: Tear Down Every Confederate Memorial,” by Eric Owens, Daily Caller, August 15, 2017:

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America.

    CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. At the Charlottesville, Va. rally, James Alex Fields, a rally attendee, allegedly plowed his grey Dodge Challenger through a large group of people on a pedestrian mall. One woman, Heather Heyer, died in the incident. About 20 other people suffered injuries.

    Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.

    “A fitting response to the deadly terror attack on anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville would be for officials in states and cities nationwide to immediately announce that every street, every school, every flag, and every public memorial honoring those who took up arms in defense of white supremacy and slavery will be removed or have its name changed to instead honor those who fought for civil rights,” Awad said in a statement to The Daily Caller.

    “Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in our nation’s history,” Awad also said.

    CAIR has created a template for state governments, municipal governments and school district officials to use for introducing resolutions seeking the removal of Confederate memorials and other symbolism….

    On Monday evening, a group of protestors toppled a monument to Confederate soldiers in Durham, North Carolina….

    In 2009, CAIR was listed by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme that provided funding to the terror group Hamas.

    “Removal of these memorials would be a small step forward in turning the page on the darkest period in our nation’s history,” Awad also said.”

    2010 A parent is taking their child for a walk in the park one sunny fall day…. To simplify my thoughts I am going to use just four stereotypes because my thinking is clouded and confused but I hope you get the idea.

    “Mommy, I like walking with you around this park. It is so peaceful. I love to watch the squirrels playing! Who is that man on the horse over there and why is there a statue of him in this park”

    White parent who understands history is the past. “Well, many years ago there was a big war in this country and many people lost their lives. That man was a general in the army for the South. He was a great military man. But the war was about whether people should own other people as slaves. We do not have slavery any more but that monument remains “lest we forget” our heritage and the struggles everyone went through to make The United States of America what it is today. *discussion of Civil War ensues*

    Black parent who understands history is the past. “Well, many years ago there was a big war in this country and many people lost their lives. That man was a general in the army for the South. He was a great military man. But the war was about whether people should own other people as slaves. We do not have slavery any more but that monument remains “lest we forget” our heritage and the struggles everyone went through to make The United States of America what it is today. *discussion of Civil War ensues*

    White parent who is a “White Supremacist” (OK pick a better stereotype for me) , “The man on the horse was a great man. He fought hard to keep black people in their place and unfortunately he failed. That is why America is in the terrible mess it is now with murders and crime and black people destroying our way of life. *discussion of Civil War ensues*

    Black parent who is a “Civil Rights Activist” ( Again (OK pick a better stereotype for me) The man on the horse was an evil man. Still to this day we black people are oppressed. Slavery never ended, it just changed its name. *discussion of Civil War ensues”

    Now, let us move forward to 2020 when all references to the American Civil War are erased.The history is all gone.

    “Mommy, I like walking with you around this park. It is so peaceful. I love to watch the squirrels playing! Can I have an ice cream please?

    White parent who understands history is the past.”Here is five bucks, get me one too!”
    Black parent who understands history is the past.”Here is five bucks, get me one too!”
    White parent who is a “White Supremacist” “Here is five bucks, get me one too!”
    Black parent who is a “Civil Rights Activist” “Here is five bucks, get me one too!”

    They sit and eat their ice cream in silence, looking at the billowing clouds of smoke on the horizon over the place they used to live……

    And they ask why?

    There are memorials all over the UK. They are there with the inscription “Lest we forget”

    Different reason I know, honoring war dead in WWI and WWII but my feeling is do not try to eradicate the history of The United States of America. It is your heritage, your history, for good or bad it is what makes the USA what it is today.

    Keep the statues, keep the parks, keep the museums.

    Lest we forget…….

    Former President Barack Obama’s tweet in response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend is already one of the platform’s most-liked posts.

    Obama tweeted Saturday night: “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…” The quote comes from Nelson Mandela’s autobiography “Long Walk to Freedom.” Obama posted the tweet alongside a picture of himself smiling at a group of children of different races.

    By Tuesday morning, the tweet had more than 2.4 million likes, making it the second most-liked tweet of all time. Ariana Grande’s tweet following a deadly bombing at her concert in England holds the top spot with 2.7 million likes.

          Obama Fears Backlash on Muslims Who Pledge to ISIS
          December 4th, 2015 Scott Ott

          Obama concerned about anti-ISIS backlash after San Bernardino shooting.
          President Obama in a somber moment as he mulls the likelihood of anti-ISIS backlash when news broke that one of the San Bernardino shooters had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.

          (2015-12-04) — Minutes after learning that one of the shooters in this week’s San Bernardino attacks, that left 14 dead and injured 21, had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State on Facebook, the White House urged Americans to remain tolerant of “differences”, in an apparent effort to head off an anti-ISIS backlash.

          “Many devotees of ISIL are patriotic Americans like you and I,” President Obama said in a written statement. “They’re just peacefully reading the Koran and the Hadith and exercising their First Amendment freedom of religion, hoping and praying for the return of the Mahdi to reign over a global caliphate under Allah’s Sharia. In other words, they’re good people.”

          A White House spokesman said the president knows that many Americans are prone to react harshly, even violently, against “people who aren’t the same as them,” adding “who can forget the atrocities committed by Christians during the Crusades, etcetera.”

          Obama ordered the Homeland Security secretary to step up surveillance of anti-ISIL hate groups, and assured the Council on American-Islamic Relations that his administration will do everything it can to keep our “all too common bigotry and hate” from harming the peaceful people he called “Caliphate-Americans.”

      Since 1925, the monument has stood in the Confederate section of the cemetery, where at least 37 Confederate veterans and their families are buried.

      A memorial to ordinary people and their dead families who fought for their “Country” A civilised country respects the remains of their foes. It was not a statue of some rich white guy on a horse but a simple marker of a place where the enemy were interred.

      The United States of America just became a third world shit hole that desecrates the burial place of fallen enemy troops.

        Expecting some “incoming” for referring to the USA as a “third world shit hole” but this past few months you are on your way there…

          Before anyone disparages ISTE (I doubt that will happen here, but it did at the Mothership) be forewarned. He knows more about the history of the United States than most U.S. Citizens.

        The educated, progressive Left in this country sure is full of ignorant assholes.

        • OLT's Stuck in Irak says:

          The educated, Progressive Left in this country have been openly praising the dictators of third world shitholes and wishing/promising for the USA to be a third-world shithole for several decades.

          Likewise in the UK and the vast majority of Western Europe.

          The only pushback you’ll get from me is where have you been while this has been going on to have just noticed it?

          😉

          I will say that over the last eight years the noxious flower of everything planted in the ’60’s by dedicated America-haters has started to bloom. You can really see the plan coming together. Drugs, division, dumbing down of required education, conversion of secondary education to indoctrination, the constant whittling at the foundations of lawful society by one cause du jour after the next … it’s all come together beautifully (if you want a third world shithole). Our so-called journalists, only very recently (in historical terms) emerged from honestly and openly biased yellow journalism for a brief almost legendary period of actually supporting a free and open democratic society, can now lie openly to the dazed, distracted, and gullible public, whip up riots, ignore facts – and they’d be on their own and unopposed (unlike the good old days) if AlGore hadn’t invented the Internet to be populated by the exact same thing from the other “side” (both real and false flag). They are delighted to fancy themselves kingmakers once more; it was a long time as the court reporter (dry and dull stuff) before Walter Cronkite discovered his bully pulpit’s efficacy, followed shortly by every “journalist”‘s wet dream, the nation-wide media trial of Richard Nixon. Suddenly, every little cryptoFascist (worshippers of the State, not any other god) had a dream that he/she/they would one day pull the strings, naturally only to right wrongs and fight injustices. The path to today was slow and covered in minor obstacles, but now the handful of mega-corporations that own the media can play at Leftist glurge against the Nazis that supposedly run the other mega-corporations while cheerfully conspiring in public with them to maintain a steady supply of easily-controlled consumers, and assisting them in paying off the worthies of both Parties to pretend it’s still a Republic.

          It’s a beautiful thing. If you want to be the ruling class of a third world shithole. And that is apparently the goal. “Animal Farm” in this context was the work of an optimist.

            I am not an American Citizen, although I have been here for over 19 years. I am a guest and just obey the laws and rules here. But I am getting quite annoyed at what my home by choice is becoming.

            I was eligible to apply for citizenship February 2017.

            Just need to pass the test and learn to fucking sing. 🙂

    In contrast. This is how first world civilised nations respect the soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in battle. The enemy soldiers, sailors and airmen that is…..

    Historical Information
    On 16 October 1959, an agreement was concluded by the governments of the United Kingdom and the Federal Republic of Germany concerning the future care of the graves of German nationals who lost their lives in the United Kingdom during the two World Wars. The agreement provided for the transfer to a central cemetery in the United Kingdom of all graves which were not situated in cemeteries and plots of Commonwealth war graves maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission in situ.

    Following this agreement, the German War Graves Commission (Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgraberfursorge) made arrangements to transfer the graves of German servicemen and civilian internees of both wars from scattered burial grounds to the new cemetery established at Cannock Chase.

    The inauguration and dedication of this cemetery, which contains almost 5,000 German and Austrian graves, took place in the presence of Dr. Trepte, the President of Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgraberfursorge, on the 10th June 1967.

    In the centre of the Hall of Honour, resting on a large block of stone, is a bronze sculpture of a fallen warrior, the work of the eminent German sculptor, Professor Hans Wimmer.

    You may not get the significance of this cemetery at first. I certainly did not.

      • Arachne says:

        It’s CIVIL WAR!!! Tear it down.
        What’s next? Are we digging up Arlington National Cemetery? It’s that located on General Lee’s estate?

        • ISTE says:

          The tomb of the unknown soldier in Arlington needs to be destroyed too. There is a 99.999% chance that the soldier was a white male killed in WWI. A white aggressive male fighting and killing peaceful Germans who just wanted to dominate Europe. Those peaceful Germans were no threat to the USA but still America attacked them!

          Also we have to stop wasting money on that ecologically unfriendly “Eternal Flame” they have burning in Arlington. It wastes precious resources, emits CO2, adds to global warming and really serves no purpose. If anyone wants to know about the dead white guy it commemorates then they can go to the library. We do not need a monument.

          I could go on. Hey the way this cheap Merlot is going down I very well may!

          A footnote….. Continuing the thoughts I had a couple of nights ago. I have never been to Arlington. I have been to Washington DC several times but as I am British then I hope you can understand why Arlington Cemetery was not on my list of places to visit during my short stays there.

          However I was aware there was a Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and an Eternal Flame at Arlington and I wrongly assumed the Eternal Flame was at that tomb.

          I had been to Paris several times and there the Eternal Flame is under the archway at the Arc de Triomphe in memory of all who died in World War I, It is in the middle of the world’s scariest roundabout!

          Hence my misunderstanding of the facts of Arlington.

          The point you may ask…. Without PHYSICALLY seeing the monuments to the past, good or bad, then history cannot be fully understood, or appreciated.

          ( I could go on… At school we were taught history from kindergarten through to being 16 years old. And my education followed the timeline. First history in school was cave men, fun for 5 year olds. Went through stone age, iron age, bronze age, then medieval, castles and knights and stuff, Napoleon…. Mandatory history classes ended when I was 16. The first World War. We were all pissed we never had history lessons after that time because we all had a desire to find out what happened next. Like a fucking star wars sequel. LOL)

    I took my hubby out tonight for his 63rd b-day. Son is in town so he went too. We’re having more festivities on Saturday with extended family & friends. 🙂

    This is all happening at a time when my mother is supposedly dying in Thailand. At least that’s what I’m being told – the dying part, anyway. She was never attached to her kids (including me), grand-kids and great-grand-kids emotionally.

    Am going to celebrate hubby’s b-day with usual fanfare and with lots of love from family & friends.

    It’s going to be difficult to reconcile the emptiness of her passing with the joy of being with our family & friends.

    Sad.

    • Trump is Teh Satan! Hit the tip!! jar! says:

      Happy b-day to your hubby righty! It’s tough when a parental relationship isn’t the ideal. Other people don’t understand. Many in our family and friends loved my Father but to me he pretty much wasn’t a Dad. Just a guy who was guilted into paying for a few things by my Mom but pretty much wanted me out of his hair. Absolutely had no interest in anything I was doing except when he felt like being a critical dick. He used to say proudly that he hated people. IOW a sociopath. WC Fields used to make cracks about hating kids but I think my Dad took it as a life philosophy. But then moronically had kids! My sisters were/are equally scarred. Maybe it’s meant to be to make us stronger and more self sufficient. And to be better parent’s ourselves. I would never be distant with my own girls or judge them harshly as he did me and my sisters.
