Robert Byrd Dies, Named KKK Grand Dragon of Hell

By: Snarky Basterd
Feed Your ADHD

Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV) died early this morning at Inova Hospital in Fairfax, Va. Upon arriving in Hell, he was immediately appointed KKK Grand Dragon.

Byrd was greeted at the gates of Hell by long-time friend Ted Kennedy, who made an unsuccessful bid for president of Hell last year shortly after his own arrival.

“Having … ah … Senata Byrd at my side again can only improve my … ah … chances of … ah … taking this place ova when elections come around again next yeya,” Kennedy said.

Byrd, for his part, cried when he saw Kennedy again. “Ted, Ted, my dear friend, I love you, and I missed you,” he said.

Satan, Kennedy’s rival for control of Hell, welcomed Byrd to his kingdom of filth.

“It is with great honor that I bestow the title of KKK Grand Dragon on Senator Byrd,” Satan said. “Only a true Democrat – and we’re all Democrats down here in Hell – could have uttered the great statements he has made over the years.”

Satan spent the next 40 hours regaling the gathering crowd of demons, radical Islamic suicide bombers, and former elected Democrats, recounting many of Byrd’s earthly statements. Here are the highlights:

  • “They call me ‘The Pork King,’ they don’t know how much I enjoy it.”
  • “There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I’m going to use that word…”
  • “The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia.”
  • “It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state in the Union…”
  • “Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan realm of W. Va.”
  • “I will never submit to fight beneath that banner with a Negro by my side…”
  • “Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again … than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrel … a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”

Is Jerry Nadler Still a Socialist?

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

New York Democratic Congressman Jerry Nadler is chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.

Rep. Jerry Nadler

In 2009, while serving in that role, Nadler effectively halted a bill to deny Federal funding to the besieged radical “community group” ACORN, on the grounds that it was an unconstitutional “Bill of Attainder.”

A little while ago, the House passed an amendment to the bill that we were considering, that says no contract or federal funds may ever go to ACORN, a named organization, or to any individual or organization affiliated with ACORN. Unfortunately, this was done in the spirit of the moment and nobody had the opportunity to point out that this is a flat violation of the Constitution, constituting a Bill of Attainder. The Constitution says that Congress shall never pass a Bill of Attainder. Bills of Attainder, no matter what their form, apply either to a named individual or to easily ascertainable members of a group, to inflict punishment. That’s exactly what this amendment does.

Interestingly, the investigation was driven by Rep. John Conyers, the far left Democrat from Michigan – a man with close ties to the Marxist based Democratic Socialists of America. Strangely, ACORN is very closely tied to D.S.A. and has been for decades.

Now it turns out that Rep. Nadler also has close ties to Democratic Socialists of America.

So when the D.S.A. connected John Conyers, called for an investigation of D.S.A. connected ACORN, the effort was brought to a halt by the D.S.A. connected Jerry Nadler. What are the chances?

When Nadler served in the New York state legislature in the late 1970s, he was an open and well known member of the Democratic Socialist Socialist Organizing Committee, which merged with former communists and student radicals from the New American Movement to form D.S.A. in 1982.

Like President Obama, Jerry Nadler has long been close to Democratic Socialists of America – regularly attending the D.S.A. sponsored annual Socialist Scholars Conferences in New York.

At the 1995 Socialist Scholars Conference, Nadler served on Panel 1 “Crisis In The City” with D.S.A. honorary chair Frances Fox Piven, co-originator of the notorious Cloward-Piven Strategy of deliberately overloading city and state welfare systems to the point of bankruptcy.

In April 1996, Nadler attended the 14th Annual Socialist Scholars Conference, themed: “Two Cheers for Utopia: Re-imagining Socialism.”

Nadler shared a panel with Frances Fox Piven and Stanley Aronowitz of D.S.A entitled “The Left and the Job Agenda in the U.S.”

Nadler was also listed as a speaker at the 1997 Socialist Scholars Conference held in March at the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York.

According to D.S.A.’s [[Democratic Left]] of April 1, 1999:

Recently, Congressional Representative Jerrold Nadler briefed D.S.A. activists from around the country on the state of the Social Security situation. According to Nadler, the Social Security “crisis” isn’t financial, it’s political.”

The rival Social Democrats USA have alleged that Nadler is an actual member of Democratic Socialists of America. S.D-U.S.A’s website history of the U.S. socialist movement confirms the known D.S.A. membership of former Congressmen Ron Dellums and Major Owens, former New York mayor David Dinkins and former AFL-CIO president John Sweeney. The Social Democrats also name Nadler as a D.S.A. member.

The Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee merged with the New American Movement, a socialist group that emerged from the New Left, to form the Democratic Socialists of America. To date, three members of the Democratic Socialists of America have served in the U.S. Congress: Ronald Dellums, Major Owens and Jerry Nadler. Democratic Socialists of America member, David Dinkins, was elected mayor of New York City. John Sweeney, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, became president of the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organization.

The list excludes another Congressional D.S.A. member, Danny Davis of Illinois. Nor does it include at least a dozen more who have ties to D.S.A., including one of the closest of all, John Conyers.

Nadler is a long time member of the D.S.A. created Congressional Progressive Caucus. He also runs on the ballot line of the D.S.A. infiltrated New York Working Families Party.

Despite its deliberately innocuous name, D.S.A. is a Marxist organization closely allied to the Communist Party and other radical organizations.

The organization openly believes in the abolition of the private ownership of the means of production. According to D.S.A. national political Committee member, Mark Green of Detroit:

What distinguishes socialists from other progressives is the theory of surplus value. According to Marx, the secret of surplus value is that workers are a source of more value than they receive in wages. The capitalist is able to capture surplus value through his ownership of the means of production, his right to purchase labor as a commodity, his control over the production process, and his ownership of the final product. Surplus value is the measure of capital’s exploitation of labor

Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production.

Several D.S.A. members have connections to Cuba, while another former National Political Committee member Kurt Stand is currently serving a long prison sentence for spying for the then East Germany and Soviet Union.

If one of Mr Nadler’s New York constituents would like to write to him asking the question: “Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of Democratic Socialists of America?” I would be happy to either publish his reply, or publicize the lack of.
