Barring physical revolution, one of the best ways to influence – or correct the trajectory of – a sick and destructive culture is through song and/or art.
Think of decadent MTV’s impact on our society – powerful, lasting, but mostly ruinous. Better yet, consider the once-cherished inspiration gospel hymns provided during our nation’s formidable years; instead of that 7-11 crap (singing 7 words, 11 times) today’s ‘church’ serves up on the overhead projector.

Fellow Patriots… as the media-raised progressives living in Amerika love to shout, “¡Viva la Revolución!”

REVOLUTION: Obama ‘Sub Par’ Counter-Culture Posters Blanket Los Angeles
(American Thinker) Dozens of posters of President Obama with a golf club and a caption “Sub Par” have been spotted outside the PGA’s golf tournament near the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, as well as near Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica, California, all of them upscale and liberal enclaves.
A quick web search discovered a number of other locations in LA with “Sub Par” posters pasted over signal boxes, hanging from the wires and lampposts on busy intersections, glued to park benches, and even attached as small stickers to the walls of public bathrooms. This bears all the marks of an anonymous guerilla street art action by local artists.
No one is claiming responsibility for this gutsy guerilla art project, and with a very good reason: in the heart of a Democrat-run city financed by Hollywood studios, any artist engaging in such “counter-progressive” activities would do well to remain anonymous.
In spite of the self-righteous promotion of tolerance and diversity by the “progressive” elites, they themselves tend to rule with a humorless iron fist of religious zealots, intolerant of any deviation from the dogma (unless the Party dogma transmogrifies; then you’re expected to transmogrify with it). And there’s hardly a deadlier sin in their bible than mocking a “progressive” deity, one of whom unquestionably is Barack Obama.
A Stalin-like intolerance of all dissent and religious worship of “progressive” icons is most rampant in such strongholds of progressivism as news media, academia, and especially the arts. An artist who refuses to conform and rebels against the “progressive” establishment gets immediately blacklisted, subjected to a witch hunt, shunned by his colleagues, and ultimately loses any chance of further employment in the industry.
The prospect of the art world rebelling against the leftist establishment frightens the Left more than the Republican Party campaigning ever will. A bunch of hip, younger artists amusing themselves by blasting leftist icons may start a trend that will turn out to be more consequential than all the costly election strategies devised by well-paid GOP consultants in Washington. Because, as Andrew Breitbart frequently said, politics is downstream of culture.
If my instincts are correct, we will be seeing more provocative street art like this. Conservatives will do well to support it.

.gif Of Obama Kicking Door Is Racist! Student Forced To Apologize
(Daily Caller) A student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada was forced to issue a formal apology for emailing a picture of President Obama kicking open a door–all because some students thought the image was somehow racist.
The image was actually an edited .gif, and was shown by Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” last fall. It humorously suggests that the president may be fed up with press conferences. McGill student Brian Farnan, vice president of the university’s student government, sent out an email with the .gif and the harmless caption, “Honestly midterms get out of here,” according to Legal Insurrection.
What happened next is almost unbelievable: Another student issued a formal complaint against Farnan for committing a “micro-aggression.”For those not up-to-date on the PC lexicon, “micro-aggression” is the latest phrase of choice for leftist radicals seeking to blame racism for common annoyances suffered by people of all races. Minority activists at the University of Michigan, for example, have insisted that trivial slights, such as “Having your opinion second-guessed in a group assignment,” are micro-aggressions that betray the campus as a hostile place for students of color.
The .gif of Obama kicking a door was racist because of the “cultural, historical and living legacy surrounding people of color—particularly young men—being portrayed as violent,” according to the apology letter that Farnan was forced to write.
Technically, Farnan got off easy. Under the McGill student government’s Orwellian “equity policy,” Farnan could have been suspended or even dismissed from his position as vice president in the organization. The decision to force Farnan to apologize was apparently made by an “equity commissioner,” whose will can only be overturned by a two-thirds majority of the student government.
Like a true victim of the thought police, Farnan was forced to denounce his heretical email.
“Despite the innocent intentions influencing my decision to use this particular image, I have come to recognize the negative implications of adding the .GIF image within this given context,” he said. “By using this particular image of President Obama, I unknowingly perpetuated this living legacy and subsequently allowed a medium of [Student Society of McGill University] communication to become the site of a microaggression; for this, I am deeply sorry.”
Guess these .gifs of Obama are ‘racist’ too, huh?

Profitting From Terrorism: 9/11 Museum Raises Admission To $24
(Breitbart) Joe Daniels, President and CEO of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, has announced a $24 mandatory admission fee for the 9/11 Memorial. [...]
Salaries at the “non-profit” 9/11 Memorial and Museum are obscene. This allegedly non-profit organization is supposed to be a tribute to 9/11 victims. “It was built to tell the story of 9/11 to future generations about the worst day in American history. It was never intended to be a revenue-generating tourist attraction with a prohibitive budget and entrance fee.”
Daniels’s salary was last reported to be $371,307. He received huge raises for three years running. As far back as 2009, there were no fewer than eleven staffers at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum who each made more than $170,000. Four had salaries higher than $320,000.
Joe Daniels @ ‘his’ 9/11
What did they do with the billion dollars it took to build this underground museum morgue?
[…] Once you are inside the museum, you will see that the pictures of the attackers are more prominently displayed than the pictures of some of the victims.
This leads one to think: do the organizers of the museum want to pay tribute to the attackers?

The oh-so liberal ‘progressive’ town of Fort Collins, Colorado…
Proud home of Balloon Boy and homosexual-Jesus supporting ‘pastors’. The same town that killed lucrative job-creating Allegiant Air contracts on the day Obama arrived at its failing airport, then forced people-employing gun accessory manufacturers to close their shops and flee the area, but heralded the idea of transsexual access to girl’s school bathrooms.
Currently, the self-proclaimed ‘über safe’ meth-ring town that money laundered $260 million of US-funded stimulus through bankrupt Abound Solar is using $8 million in taxpayer funds to grow bomb-sniffing plants, yet viciously defends its homegrown #occupy $10 million arsonist – largest property damage caused by a single anti-1%er, ever.
It’s a hipster Utopia, where rules that prevent kids from touching rocks in school have fast-tracked it into becoming our nation’s leading test ground for Agenda 21 – thanks in part to Pat Stryker’s Bohemian Companies and Jared Polis as explained in the book, ‘The Blueprint: How The Democrats Won Colorado‘.
Any questions as to what the true ‘culture’ – rather agenda – might be of this trendy college town that boasts a population of 150,000 when CSU is in session?
Predictably, a socialist breeding ground for anti-American and anti-Christian values of this caliber – rated ‘Top Places To Live‘ by government-subsidized mainstream media – Fort Collins now has high school administrators caught in what appears to be a flat-out lie; lying to their students, to their parents, to their faculty, and to the entire United States considering most major news sites are running this story.
The problem is, long before Fort Collins High School administrators backpedalled claiming ‘Merica Day could be offensive to ‘rednecks’, they originally and clearly stated ‘Merica Day was banned because they feared it ‘offensive to international students.’
This from their local paper’s 1st run, as-in straight from the horse’s mouth…
Fort Collins, Colorado High School Bans ‘Merica Day
(Coloradoan) Parents and students expressed outrage on Facebook on Monday after administrators at Fort Collins High School nixed a student idea to host an upcoming spirit day called “’Merica Day.”
The situation caught the attention of Fox News and has some community members saying the school should be “ashamed of their un-American PC censorship” of a day students intended to celebrate a country that’s home to people of diverse backgrounds and origins.
“I can see both sides, but I think it’s kind of absurd that we can’t celebrate the country we’re in — whether you’re from it or just visiting. It’s a country,” said Ellie Goodspeed, a senior and treasurer of the school’s student council.
Goodspeed said the juniors are in charge of planning themes for each day of spirit week, celebrated during the week of Valentine’s Day. They suggested “’Merica Day,” but administrators, she said, thought it could be offensive to the school’s international students.
According to a statement sent Monday night to the Coloradoan by Poudre School District spokeswoman Danielle Clark: “Building administrators met with the students to discuss the inconsistency of this day versus the other planned theme days, including PJ day and Twin day.”
Goodspeed said students suggested a compromise in “My Country Monday,” which they believed would allow students to celebrate any country they chose. She said building administrators originally turned that option down but on Monday agreed it was OK.
Clark said she couldn’t confirm whether the “My Country Monday” compromise was originally rejected but said Principal Mark Eversole ultimately told students he thought it was a good way for students to show pride in their country of origin.
“It turned into a big deal really fast,” Goodspeed said.
Senior Stephanie Livingston thought the school’s decision was hypocritical, given that students celebrate the Mexican culture holiday Cinco de Mayo. She also believed prohibition of “’Merica Monday” was an affront to students and their family members who have served in the Armed Forces.
“By doing this the administrators disrespect the U.S. Constitution and veterans like me,” Craig Hewitt wrote on the Fort Collins High School Facebook page. Some commenters called for the school’s staff to be fired, while others lauded students for being willing to stand up and offer a compromise.
Similar criticism broke out in 2012 and early 2013 when members of a cultural club at Rocky Mountain High School recited the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish and Arabic, respectively.
Before The Coloradoan – another Gannett propaganda machine – starts ‘modifying’ their article and deleting ‘racist’ comments from Conservatives, or FCHS’s ‘Administrators’ continue back-tracking, I made screen captures for chronological posterity.
Sure, RINO Darrell Issa attempted to make it clear to us serfs that Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama would not be made ‘political targets’ during any Benghazi investigations (HERE), but he wasn’t – and still isn’t – counting on a fight from the undying true American spirit that will not accept tyrannical rule as the norm.
Patriots, if there ever was a battle to pick – one that could potentially usurp our dictatorship – this is it. Let’s show these token Marxist community organizers that it does make a difference…
Benghazi Victims’ Families, Conservative Leaders to Boehner, “Install Select Committee Now!”
(Breitbart) Three family members of the victims of the Benghazi terrorist attack and scores of conservative and military leaders are kicking off 2014 by demanding that House Speaker John Boehner install a select committee.
[…] In the letter to Boehner, which was delivered on early Monday afternoon and provided exclusively to Breitbart News, Sean Smith’s mother, Pat Smith, and uncle, Michael Ingmire, along with Tyrone Woods’ father, Charles Woods, joined the call for a select committee to investigate the Benghazi scandal. Other notable signers include former Rep. Allen West (R-FL), conservative leader Ginni Thomas of Liberty Consulting, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, retired Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, Freedom Center president David Horowitz, and scores of other military and conservative movement leaders.
“We write to express our grave concern over the failure of your House of Representatives to extract the truth from the Obama administration concerning the attack on our diplomatic and intelligence facilities in Benghazi, Libya; and, the brutal deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stephens, U.S. Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and security officers Ty Woods and Glen Doherty,” the coalition wrote to Boehner.
Specifically, a House select committee on Benghazi would be similar to the Watergate select committee formed in the U.S. Senate during the scandal that took down President Richard Nixon. It would be a focused committee with members from both the Democrat and Republican parties and staffed with the proper resources to conduct a thorough investigation of the matter. Thus far, Boehner has had five separate House committees investigating the matter that have not succeeded. He has also publicly opposed the creation of a select committee, saying he does not think it is necessary.
There is currently a bill in the House of Representatives, H. Res 36 from Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), that would create such a committee. It has, including Wolf, 179 cosponsors according to the Library of Congress, well more than the majority of the House GOP majority–which is 232 Republican members strong. Yet, despite the overwhelming support from the House GOP conference, Boehner continues to refuse to allow a vote on the installation of a select committee to investigate the Benghazi scandal and continues to block efforts to bring the bill forward.
Now that this new coalition is stepping forward, Boehner may end up facing enough pressure to force him to create the committee.
The letter’s signers are demanding Boehner install a select committee to investigate what happened. They argue that Boehner’s unwillingness to create an official investigative body has benefitted President Barack Obama’s administration, as it has taken advantage of the lack of focus in House investigations.
“To date, five (5) different committees of the House have conducted separate hearings, uncovering information in a piecemeal fashion lacking professional investigators,” the coalition wrote to Boehner. “The five committees’ efforts are disjointed and uncoordinated. The Obama administration has benefited from that dysfunctional process to hide the truth.”

DNC worried about possible Obama impeachment: HERE
Sure, it took our Muslim President years to unveil a freshly created electronic composite of a multi-layered Adobe® PDF birth certificate facsimile that his Marxist pal – Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie – conveniently failed to locate time and time again, but I doubt the impostor’s concocted background is the reason our DNC is suddenly nervous. Besides, our Republican Party is the old Democratic Party, and they’ve been repeatedly kicking the ‘impeachment can’ down the road since Obama’s first year in office.
This is probably a horrible time to bring up the fact that the Hawaiian health official who ‘authenticated’ Obama’s fake certificate was killed in a plane crash 2 weeks ago. Oops!
But now the DNC is worried?!
Apparently, yes. In fact the Democratic National Committee emailed its supporters a paranoid bulletin this evening urging them to vote for more Democrats in order to keep Republicans from impeaching President Obama.
DNC Worried About Possible Obama Impeachment
(Daily Caller) The email, subject line “Impeachment,” was sent to Obama for America supporters, imploring them to contribute to the DNC’s 2014 efforts. “What do these people all have in common?,” the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.
The DNC email discussed the “I-Word” and said that “Republicans are actually excited about the idea.”
“Show these Republicans that they are way, way off-base, and give President Obama a Congress that has his back,” according to the DNC email, noting that Democrats need to win 17 GOP House seats to reclaim a majority.
The DNC, which recently expanded its political tactics to include boycotting independent news outlets, previously supported the last president to be impeached: Bill Clinton.
Obama’s staff changed key talking points on the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack; his Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups during the 2012 election cycle; and Obama personally lied to the American people when he told them that they could keep their existing doctors and health insurance plans under Obamacare.
Obama’s expansion of executive branch authority is “setting the stage for something very dangerous in the future” according to Republican Rep. Justin Amash.

Official Statement By The Robertson Family
(Boycott A&E) “We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. While some of Phil’s unfiltered comments to the reporter were coarse, his beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Phil would never incite or encourage hate. We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith, which is his constitutionally protected right. We have had a successful working relationship with A&E but, as a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm. We are in discussions with A&E to see what that means for the future of Duck Dynasty. Again, thank you for your continued support of our family.”
