Good morning, GN!

It’s December already??? Fffffffuuuuuuuu… 😉

This makes me much angrier that it probably should: Clinton Appoints Ex-Congressman Who Blamed Defeat on Jews to ‘Leadership Team’.

Shortly after Hilliard’s defeat, the former congressman gave an interview to the Black Commentator in which he said “Jewish interests” bought the election for Davis.

“The only thing I know for sure, that I saw in black and white, is $1,098,000 that [Davis] reported,” said Hilliard in the July 16, 2002 interview. “You can’t take money from corporations, so that came from Jews and Republicans. There’s no question where that money came from.”

Hilliard said his opponent also received millions of dollars in free media coverage.

“Remember, the Jewish media. They started putting word out, they wanted everybody to know, because … obviously they felt that the money they had, that they put in, that they were going to beat me,” he said.

According to Hilliard, billions of dollars were being taken from poor communities and sent to Israel. He said Davis “made a pact with the Israelis” and “was used.”

“[Davis] doesn’t know that his victory sent a message to other Blacks of my era that they better be careful what they say or how they deal with the Israeli or Jewish question,” said Hilliard.

Hilliard also said that one mainstream Jewish organization wrote to him after the election and told him he “ought to stop whimpering because, after all, they didn’t replace me with a white.”

“There is a group out there that wants to dominate us,” he added. “They want us to do what they want us to do … and to Hell with our agenda if there is a conflict.”

I cannot quite put my finger on why those tropes sound so familiar…

Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Boy, those Joooos sure are powerful! I didn’t know that they were the new slave-masters of liberal Black politicians. Maybe you could put the word out to do something about Charlie Rangel? Thanks!

Hai, Paddy!

I’d love to fix Rangel’s foully corrupt little red wagon. Alas, the Zionist Entity won’t even send me my monthly ZOG checks, so apparently I have no pull with them despite being the son of a Holocaust survivor.

They treat me like a friggin’ goy, the nebekhdik farkakt gonniffs!

Heya, Paddy!

Read this today on FB: Raccoons are the devil. They are the frat boys of the natural world. I reckon Sven knows that firsthand.

It’s no wonder they act like frat boys:

Hai, Mac!

Zounds!

I find your characterization of that cat to be accurate. 👿

How’d you like it if someone was kicking snow at you?

You scream and you leap!

Frivolity and gamboling!

I’m with Mac re responding to spousal queries before proper caffeineation has been achieved.

¿Que?

Is that some SF publishing arcana of which I’m unaware, Mac?

Cheers, Mac; I didn’t recognize that line; been a long time since I’ve reread Ringworld.

IIRC, I was about 14 when it was first published. Dad probably got the SFBC edition; I remember reading it and being rather stunned by the size of that “artifact”. Liked the tech and characters, too, but sheesh…the idea of something that large blew my little teenage mind.

BTW, my “oyfro” was almost as big as that kid’s.

Seems un-Niven-like to have gotten that sequence backasswards. I’m also a fan, including a lot of the collaborations with Pournelle and/or Barnes.

SF’s still my favorite genre to read for fun; I’m glad there’s a much larger market for it now than when I was a kid. Despite being fairly “selective” re sub-genres, my list o’ books to read is sort of scary-long. (Not to mention the ones I’ve read and want to eventually own in hardback ’cause they’re “keepers”. Olive teh Amazon Marketplace for that!)

Har!

I’m sure they do; search in “haberdashery”.
