Good morning, kids. One of the great things about being privileged enough to do what I do is that it affords me the opportunity to meet and talk with some truly eloquent and “wicked-smaaart” (as they would intone up in Boston) authors and commentators around. One of them is Scott McKay, who is a regular contributor on American Spectator as well as on his own site RVIVR.com.
CBD and I had a fantastic conversation with him on the latest episode of the podcast (here and in the sidebar) about his latest book Racism, Revenge and Ruin: It’s ALL Obama. The first thing that hit me when reading through it, aside from the fact that after just the first 10 pages I wanted to open a vein (and not necessarily mine IYKWIMAITYD), I had forgotten both the absolute moral and intellectual vacuity of the dog-eating, narcissistic Marxist stoner as well as the way an incurious, and to be more accurate, conspiratorial media-propaganda industry foisted this destructive fraud on us.
I had thought we would be spared the sight and sound of this hateful bastard once he exited (seemingly) the scene. Well, we all know the score on that over these past three years. Whatever Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants has inflicted on us up to and including bringing the world to the brink of global and perhaps nuclear conflict has all been engineered and orchestrated behind the brick walls of a sprawling home in the Kalorama section of D.C.
But Obama being Obama – a man whose mind and warped worldview were shaped by a virulent, anti-American, anti-white, anti-Semitic anti-Western Stalinist by the name of Frank Marshall Davis, ditto the hateful, godless apostate Jeremiah Wright, and further twisted by an unrepentant domestic terrorist who had dreams of liquidating 20 million Americans to usher in paradise on Earth, Bill Ayers – just couldn’t keep his purple-lipped festering gob shut, could he? Not when Americans by and large rushed to the defense of Israel, a.k.a. the “little Satan” as the Mullahs in Iran refer to it, as it faced its greatest existential threat in 50 years.
And because the in-your-face slaughter up to and including the beheading and roasting alive of infants in ovens in front of their abused parents was finally enough to wake up even the most aloof liberal as to the true nature of who and what they’ve been voting for, this fucking cancer just couldn’t stay silent.
If there’s any chance of us being able to act constructively, to do something, it will require an admission of complexity. And maintaining, what on the surface may seem contradictory ideas — that what Hamas did was horrific, and there’s no justification for it;
and what is also true is that the occupation [sic] and what’s happening to Palestinians is unbearable.
[Applause] And what is also true is that there is a history of the Jewish people that may be dismissed, unless your grandparents, or your great-grandparents, or your uncle or your aunt tell you stories about the madness of antisemitism. And what is true is that there are people right now who are dying who have nothing to do with what Hamas did. And what is true, right — I mean, we can go on for a while. And the problem with the social media, and trying to — TikTok activism, and trying to debate this, on that, is you can’t speak the truth. You can pretend to speak the truth. You can speak one side of the truth, and in some cases you can try to maintain you moral innocence, but that won’t solve the problem.
And so if you want to solve the problem, you have to take in the whole truth, and you then have to admit nobody’s hands are clean, that all of us are complicit to some degree.
In the immortal words of a t-shirt I once saw at an NYC souvenir shop:Fuck you, you fucking fuck!
“Nobody’s hands are clean”?! While I certainly do not necessarily believe in absolutes, I don’t think there has ever been a clearer example of the deepest, darkest penultimate shade of gray before coming to pitch black and ditto the other side of the spectrum than what is happening right here. There is no such thing as “Palestine” or “Palestinians.” There is no “occupation” other than the fact that Gaza has been occupied by a government if you could call it that of dark age savages that are the tip of the rusty scimitar in killing every single Jew on the planet before everybody else who stands in the way of Planet Islam.
Aside from the hands of the Islamic animals who slaughtered 1,500 Israelis just for the sake of slaughter itself as both a political tool and a political end, Barack Obama’s mitts are among the dirtiest there are since his policies and his people have aided and abetted in both the aforementioned butchery of Israelis and the absolutely morally, historically and legally justified retaliation in the name of its own self-preservation. If any truly innocent Gazans die as a result, that is tragic. But their deaths are on the heads of Hamas and the adherents to Islam as it has been written and preached for the past 1,500 years in every mosque in every corner of the globe.
Obama coming out with those statements is quite revelatory as to his mindset. And it’s chilling. Besides destroying the greatest nation and society in history that people foolishly and blindly elected him to lead, his desire to do the same to Israel runs just as deep.
Remember that Israel was the cradle of Judaism and Christianity, from whence civilization and the advancement of mankind for the past five millennia sprang. Everything we have achieved and still strive for in every field of endeavor came from the Judeo-Christian ethic, teachings and way of life – which is antithetical to everything Obama, the Left and Islam believe in.
When you understand that, you understand the true nature of what this choom-smoking, penis-swallowing fraud is all about. Him and everyone who has aided and abetted him in bringing America and the world to the brink of disaster.
As I said at the end of the podcast, my wish is for Obama to live long enough to see everything he did completely and absolutely reversed, and that on his deathbed, the last thing he hears are the voices of children mocking his name as the Angel of Death drags his worthless soul to the Infernal Reaches for all time.

With everything happening in Israel/Gaza that is reverberating all over the world, there are a few crucial things here that no doubt could slip through the cracks. Specifically, there a couple of crucial elections happening in parts of the country that we need to show up in force to ensure things go our way, i.e. beat the cheat in such a way as the results cannot be challenged. Most crucially is this Proposition 1 in Ohio which, when you read the text of the proposed law essentially legalizes baby-killing virtually to the point where the child’s head emerges out of the womb and into the delivery room. That shit has got to go down in flames, people.
There’s also commonwealth-wide elections in Virginia, where after being totally spanked by Glen Youngkin and Winsome Sears (two people that I think could and should have national aspirations), the Leftists are running, what else, abortion extremists and pro-crime candidates. That we flipped a state that was turning from purple to blue back towards a redder shade, and right in the backyard of the DC heart of darkness has got to piss them off mightily. Again, get to the polls and do your duty.
Lastly, there is a gubernatorial race in Kentucky where the incumbent, the phony fraud “moderate” communist Andy Beshear is facing off against David Cameron, another young, up and coming conservative star who, despite being black, is being slimed as a white supremacist because, what else is there? Beshear barely defeated Matt Bevin in 2019 and the momentum appears to be on Cameron’s side. Again, Louisville and the college towns and wherever else the Leftist cancer predominates aside, this is a state that should be pretty deep red. Let’s make that happen.
I will assume that there are other special elections happening, perhaps in your area, that I’m not aware of. While the aforementioned are in the spotlight because they have national implications, I’m of the mindset that, Dao-Min Yen notwithstanding, every race now has national implications, so get out there and bring it on home.

Besides, leaders are expendable and replaceable if passions run high enough in the below-ground maze, out of range of the bombing, where Hamas actually runs its military operations.
