Complaint over Nazi re-enactors leads Fairfax park officials to pause

 Nazi Re-enactors: A photo from the German government's national archives shows Adolf Hitler reviewing the SS Leibstandarte A.H. combat unit in December 1935. A re-enactor group's portrayal of the unit drew the ire of one U.S. military veteran, and has caused the Fairfax County Park Authority to scrap the World War II re-enactment planned for Sully Historic Site in 2016. - o.Ang.
"PC is far from being dead and buried. Why do misinformed libtards insist on slandering Gen. Forrest? We had a similar thing happen a few years ago in liberal Oak Ridge, TN where one of the spinster planning officials felt like the re-enactment glorified war! I mean the reason Oak Ridge is even there is because .gov needed a remote place to develop one of the atomic bombs dropped on Japan at the end of WW2!" 

Fairfax County Park Authority officials have canceled next year’s World War II bivouac at Sully Historic Site in Chantilly and will re-evaluate the event’s future, after a veteran complained that this summer’s event featured re-enactors portraying a notoriously vicious group of Nazis.

Retired U.S. Army Col. James Currie of Alexandria became incensed after seeing a Washington Post photo taken at the site’s World War II Weekend, held July 11 and 12, which had actors dressed as members of combat unit 1 SS Leibstandarte A.H.(It's a reenactment, dorkhead.)

It all began with one pastor who said, "No."

 On 22 December 1989 the dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu was overthrown in Romania, ending 42 years of Communist rule. It all began with a Romanian-Hungarian Reformed pastor, Laslo Tokes (pron. Toe-kesh). The government was trying to evict him from his church apartment. His parishioners began a vigil outside on 15 December, refusing to move when guards ordered them. Even though Tokes advised the people to leave, several hundred hung around. Events escalated, the crowd grew. When the mayor of Timisoara warned the crowd to disperse or face water cannons, the crowd stayed, and no water cannons appeared. The crowd began to sing the patriotic song, "Wake up, O Romanian!" banned since 1947 by the Communists. Next they began to shout, "Down with Ceausescu! Down with Communism!" The crowd headed toward the city center where the militia failed to disperse them. Water cannons were brought out, but the crowd seized them & threw them into the river.

On Sunday, 17 December, the army fired into the crowd, killing many. On 18 December thousands of workers in Timisoara joined the protest, and by 20 December the city was in full revolt. News spread across Romania and triggered more protests that swirled into the Romanian Revolution that overthrew Ceausescu and the Communists. On 25 December Ceausescu and his wife Elena were captured by the armed forces, tried and convicted of genocide and sabotage of the Romanian economy in a one-hour session -- longer than they had given many of their victims -- and then shot by a firing squad.

The Democrats’ Theme for 2016 Is Totalitarianism

Via Billy

At the beginning of December, Rolling Stone writer Jeff Goodell asked Secretary of State John Kerry whether Charles and David Koch, two libertarian political activists, should be considered — his remarkable words — “an enemy of the state.” He posed the same question about Exxon, and John Kerry, who could have been president of these United States, said that he looked forward to the seizure of Exxon’s assets for the crime of “proselytizing” impermissibly about the question of global warming. An enemy of the state? That’s the Democrats’ theme for the New Year: totalitarianism.
 Donald Trump may talk like a brownshirt, but the Democrats mean business. For those of you keeping track, the Democrats and their allies on the left have now: voted in the Senate to repeal the First Amendment, proposed imprisoning people for holding the wrong views on global warming, sought to prohibit the showing of a film critical of Hillary Rodham Clinton, proposed banning politically unpopular academic research, demanded that funding politically unpopular organizations and causes be made a crime and that the RICO organized-crime statute be used as a weapon against targeted political groups. They have filed felony charges against a Republican governor for vetoing a piece of legislation, engaged in naked political persecutions of members of Congress, and used the IRS and the ATF as weapons against political critics.

An Honorable End & The Death Watch

Via Ryan

“We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who, during the eruption of Vesuvius, died at his post because they forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one thing that can not be taken from a man.”

Treason it is, not that I haven't said it before. :)

Can we call what Obama, Ryan, Pelosi, and the rest of the liberal Beltway establishment are doing to us treason yet? Yes we can: The House passed Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)’s $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill, negotiated with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). A majority of House Republicans voted for the measure, which fully funds Obama’s refugee resettlement operation, all Mideast immigration programs, Sanctuary Cities, Obama’s continued executive amnesty for DREAMers, and the resettlement of illegal aliens within the U.S. interior. …
