Random Dumbassedness In The News

One Patrick Gaspard, White House political affairs director, is about to take over as Executive Director of the Democratic National Committee:
Like Obama, Patrick Gaspard wrote poetry. Like Obama , Patrick Gaspard grew up admiring third world leftists and revolutionaries. He reportedly idolized Aime Cesaire, a radical poet/politician from the French colony of Martinique. Cesaire was elected to the French Parliament with the French Communist Party, but later left to form his own leftist party in Martinique. Cesaire also taught the anti-colonialist Marxist theorist Frantz Fanon, of whom Obama wrote admiringly in his autobiography, Dreams From My Fathers [sic].
Meanwhile, at the White House, a Chinese pianist decided to offer up a charming little propaganda piece of Korean War vintage:
The song Lang Lang played describes how beautiful China is and then near the end has this verse, “When friends are here, there is fine wine/But if the jackal comes What greets it is the hunting rifle.” The “jackal” in the song is the United States.
And on the Left Coast, the usual UCLA conference hosting militant Islamists:
There was a lot of “Allahu Akbar” being shouted throughout Amir’s presentation. At the very end, he said, “Let’s all pledge allegiance.” I looked around for a flag, and was about to stand when he said, “repeat after me”: “We’re all for Islam, Allah is the way, Jihad is the means”, etc.
Back to the Beltway, and an interesting slip of the tongue from President Obama:
“I know we can win that competition. I know we can out-compete any other nation on Earth,” he said. “We just have to make sure we’re doing everything we can to unlock the productivity of American workers, unleash the ingenuity of American businesses, and harness the dynamism of America’s economy” [emphasis added].
