we the people

Dear Ms. Walker:

As an avid reader of the Wall Street Journal, I particularly enjoy their column “Notable & Quotable,” since their selections are usually very enlightening.

So, at first, I was taken aback when they published an excerpt from your end-of-year blog: Alice Walker gives thanks to Julian Assange and Noam Chomsky.

But I did find it enlightening.

I had previously thought that you were just another Jew-hating, Israel-bashing second-rate writer. I mean, I remember how you begged Alicia Keyes not to go ahead with her Tel Aviv concert last summer.

I’m so glad Alicia ignored you. She played to a sold-out crowd, opening with “Ma koreh, Tel Aviv?” (“What’s happening, Tel Aviv?”) and I heard she nearly brought the house down!

But I digress.

I went to your blog, and saw your end-of-year thanks.

And now I realize:

Your hatred of Israel stems from the fact that you are a committed Leftist.

And I do believe that all Leftists should be committed. (Btw, I hear the food is pretty good at Manhattan State Psychiatric Center.)

First of all, you thank so many (really, who are these people?) for sticking their necks out for “the collective.”

The collective? Wow, you sound like an old Marxist. Oh wait…

But I did recognize a few names:

Chelsea Manning: May you have joy- you deserve this for the risks you took – never doubt that it will come to you again. You are seen, and cherished. Your courage represents the joy, and the compassion, the world will follow.

You’re kidding, right?

But here’s the part that really had me falling off my chair, laughing:

And last but not least, Noam Chomsky. Long before I knew who this great teacher was I was riding around the Cape with Howard Zinn (A People’s History of the United States) on my way to Wellfleet where his wife Roz was waiting lunch for us. The Zinns were old and dear friends. Howard mentioned playing tennis. I couldn’t believe it. I’d never heard anything before about him playing tennis. He said Oh, yes, I play tennis. I play tennis with Noam Chomsky. I think he said every Thursday and I think we must have been passing the tennis court. Since that time whenever I’m really depressed about the political situation in America, which is often, I think of these two great beings playing tennis. That’s when I know we the people have every chance of winning.

So, you were friends with the late Howard Zinn? Wow, birds of a feather really do flock together!

I will give Zinn credit for two things: He fought (as a bombardier) in WWII, and he was an early champion of civil rights (early 50’s).

But his b.s. drivel nonsense revisionist history of the U.S. is not even worth the paper it’s printed on.

And Noam Chomsky? Please, don’t get me started. (Great job, Professor Chomsky, convincing Stephen Hawking to join the Boycott Israel crowd!)

But I digress again.

Here’s my point:

“We the people” does not mean your tired/old/has-been/Leftist/ self-hating cronies.

“We the People” means us: millions and millions of Americans who love our country. We are proud of our country. We believe that our country is exceptional. We believe, as President Reagan said, that “we are…the last best hope of man on earth.”

So, here’s the thing:

2014 is here.

“We the People” are fed up.

And fired up.

So, hold on to that pathetic visual of Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky playing tennis together.

You’re gonna need it.

Happy New Year!

P.S. If you’re depressed right now, please do not read the article listed below:

P.P.S. If your depression persists, you might want to consider seeking medical attention.

You did sign up for Obamacare, right? 🙂

    To “The Depressed Alice Walker”, if you didn’t like the above posted comment by Lady Shifra, you can always go have a depression session with all your other loony libs. Happy depressing New Year to you.

  2. Kitten says:

    Hahaha! And on this 1st day of the New Year…our Shifra hits it outta the park. If Alice thinks she’s depressed now, this is not going to be a good year for her nor her looney liberal buddies. They all fester and slither around in the same mud pit, hating on people and our country. 2014 is here. Like my Spartans from Michigan State did in winning the Rose Bowl today, let’s take it to ‘em!

      In honor of MSU victory in the 100th Rose Bowl, the MSU Fight Song:

      On the banks of the Red Cedar,
      There’s a school that’s known to all;
      Its specialty is winning,
      And those Spartans play good ball;
      Spartan teams are never beaten,
      All through the game they fight;
      Fight for the only colors:
      Green and White.

      Go right through for MSU,
      Watch the points keep growing,
      Spartan teams are bound to win,
      They’re fighting with a vim!
      Rah! Rah! Rah!
      See their team is weakening,
      We’re going to win this game,
      Fight! Fight! Rah! Team, Fight!
      Victory for MSU!

        Tammy, since you tweeted about the Stanford band, here is the Wikipedia link on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_Band

        “The Leland Stanford Junior University Marching Band (LSJUMB) is the student marching band of Stanford University. Billing itself as “The World’s Largest Rock and Roll Band”…The de facto fight song is “All Right Now,”…Traditional “marching” is also missing, as the band “scatters” from one formation to the next….The LSJUMB is still banned from Disneyland due to antics…Additionally the Rose Bowl committee still requires advance review if the band marches in the parade…”

        Thanks, Alain! 🙂

    And Ms. Walker, for your enlightenment, this BBC article is what socialism does to the young. And why Tea Party is not going away. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-25559089

  4. 1ntbtn says:

    Shifra, do think you would want her for a patient to help her with her depression? he,he,he

  5. Ptown Patriot says:

    Yes the Zinns and Chomskys on the Cape, visiting my fellow Ptown resident Norman Mailer….they are all committed Commies, birds of a feather flock together…they should move to NY next to the new Mayor!

  6. strider says:

    Sounds like she wants up on the overcrowded leftist overlord cart, right up there with the politicians and the pullers need to be rallied up.

  7. JHSII says:

    I think for Alice Walker to have something else to do with her time, she should join a bridge club.

    They jump off next Tuesday.

  8. LJZumpano says:

    Ya know Shifra, I could hear you open that window and shout all the way from the city to the North Shore of Long Island. Boy, did it sound good!

  9. LucyLadley says:

    Keep ’em coming Shifra!!!! YOU ARE LIT!!!!!! A bright light – not one of the squiggly lights that have been forced on us. Prayers for Israel!

  10. Charles_PA says:

    Shifra – I tried to read completely through the linked articles plus the original article by that Harvard poseur. Couldn’t do it. I applaud your ability to read the writings of unhinged (?) journalists and professors.

    BTW: Hawking should confine his comments to theoretical physics not politics.

  11. MACVEL says:

    You’re a bit mild toward Alice Walker. You could have at least given her directions to the Psychiatric Centre!
