Teacher Denounces Parents During Virtual Lesson

On behalf of members of teachers’ unions everywhere, Alissa Piro of San Marcos High School in California lets her students know just what she thinks of parents who want her to drag her lazy behind into the classroom and start doing the job she is no doubt overpaid for:

Key quote:

“[I]f your parent wants to come talk to me about how I’m not doing a good enough job in distance learning based on what you need as an individual? Just dare them to come at me. Because I am so sick to my stomach of parents trying to tell educators how to do their job.”

Fox News provides background:

Piro, who teaches English, appears to be referencing an ongoing lawsuit launched by a coalition of parents against Gov. Gavin Newsom and six North Country school districts seeking eased COVID restrictions and an accelerated return to physical classrooms, though local unions say doing so would constitute judicial overreach. …

The video was filmed by a family member of a student in attendance, and was shared to a private Facebook group aimed at reopening schools in the district, before being obtained by Fox News. After over a year of remote learning, the district recently agreed to a hybrid model which allows students to attend in-person learning two days a week. The local union reportedly voted to keep the hybrid model for the duration of the school year, outraging parents and students anxious to return to in-person instruction.

By now it should be obvious why even the leftist FDR opposed the existence of public sector unions.

Considering that Reagan managed to fire striking air traffic controllers, it would be a cinch to give the boot to any schoolteacher who demands to be paid without doing their job — and that job entails in-person classroom instruction. Despite this woman’s absurd assertion that her skill level is comparable to a physician’s, she would not be hard to replace. But that would require leadership.

Jazz Shaw writes,

We have the CDC and HHS saying that transmission rates of the virus in schools are quite low and can be managed. Teachers are being allowed to jump the line to be vaccinated all around the country. Too many parents are at the end of their ropes and too many students are falling behind at an alarming rate. Everyone is ready for this to be over. And the only thing standing in the way are the teacher’s unions.

Actually, that’s not the only thing. The larger obstacle is Big Government, which is run by Democrats who pander to the pernicious unions that pour dues money into their campaigns.

Tucker Carlson to Be Canceled?

They want more than to subvert the American system of government by institutionalizing election fraud and packing the Supreme Court. They want to eradicate the American nation by displacing its people.

“Replacement theory” is not so much theory as observable fact. Leftists, prominently including Joe Biden, have extolled their strategy of achieving a permanent Democrat majority by importing massive numbers of nonwhites from the Third World. This is why no effort is made to resolve the crisis at the border, which could easily be accomplished simply by closing it. It also provides insight into why Biden’s spending blowouts (both the “coronavirus” and “infrastructure” looting sprees) include cash incentives for single mothers who can’t afford to raise them to have more children.

If you doubt the importance of replacement strategy to leftists, behold their reaction if you draw attention to it. Tucker Carlson recently discussed Democrats’ replacement strategy in strictly nonracial terms, yet it triggered vehement denunciations of his alleged racism. Mark Dice thinks leftists will be able to use this to drive him off Fox News:

Things will not go well for Caucasians when leftists achieve their white minority holy grail. The USA will follow South Africa on the road to Zimbabwe.

The Merriam-Webster definition of genocide warrants repetition:

the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political, or cultural group

Leftists will try to silence anyone who draws attention to this objective.

Pretext Found to Riot in Minneapolis

Knowing that civilization will barely lift a finger to defend itself, mostly peaceful protesters enjoy rioting so much that they couldn’t wait for a verdict in the Derek Chauvin case. Or maybe they have enough contempt for the country they are destroying to think Chauvin will be found guilty despite his apparent innocence, which would obviate their pretext for unrest. The convenient thing about race riots in a society poisoned by critical race theory is that you can always find another pretext. Just wait for someone with the correct pigmentation to die during a confrontation with law enforcement and voilà:

The Minneapolis area erupted in looting and riots late Sunday after an unidentified officer fatally shot [Daunte] Wright during a traffic stop just 10 miles from where Chauvin had [liberal deity George] Floyd pinned to the pavement last May.

The liberal establishment’s enthusiastic support for the race riots that followed Floyd’s probable fentanyl overdose guaranteed that explosions of indiscriminate urban violence will be a regular feature of American life for the foreseeable future.

About 500 people had gathered overnight outside of a police precinct in the city and clashed with officers.

Details of what actually happened to Wright are still unclear.

Brooklyn Center Police said that officers had stopped an individual shortly before 2 p.m. Sunday. After determining the driver had an outstanding warrant, police tried to arrest him. But the driver reentered the vehicle and drove away, police said. An officer fired at the vehicle, striking the driver. Police said the vehicle traveled several blocks before crashing into another vehicle.

Apparently, the officer meant to use a Taser, but in the heat of the moment accidentally fired a handgun instead.

If the media didn’t encourage Criminals of Color to resist arrest, Wright might still be alive.

Minnesota Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington detailed how demonstrators gathered shortly after the shooting and crash, with some jumping on top of police cars and confronting officers. Marchers also descended upon the Brooklyn Center Police Department building where rocks and other objects were thrown at officers, he said.

A thrown rock is a lethal weapon. If police were to defend themselves appropriately, this nonsense would end quickly. But that is not an option, because the media wouldn’t like it.

Harrington added that about 20 businesses had been broken into at the city’s Shingle Creek shopping center. …

The Brooklyn Center Walmart was targeted by looters who also completely destroyed a nearby Foot Locker, T Mobile and a New York men’s clothing store. Looting spilled over into north and south Minneapolis late Sunday into Monday morning as stores in Uptown and along Lake Street were also broken into and emptied.

This would qualify as social justice, on the grounds that it is shop-owners’ fault that Criminals of Color sometimes get themselves killed while resisting arrest.

Watch the deliberately engineered collapse of civilization into savagery unfold:

Liberals must be rubbing their hands in glee as they anticipate how they will exploit the violence they aid and abet to advance gun control:

A police headquarters in another neighboring city of Brooklyn Park was “shot up” around 8 p.m. Sunday, Fox 9 Minneapolis reported. Multiple rounds were fired through the building’s glass front doors with some shots reaching the lobby.

So long as the ruling class glorifies criminals and eggs on race riots, we will get more of them. Reward bad people the way Patrisse Cullors has been rewarded and ever worse behavior is guaranteed.

The situation will continue to deteriorate until one of two things happens: (1) America succumbs to liberalism and is destroyed; or (2) Americans reject liberalism and push back hard enough to reestablish sanity.

If Option #1 is chosen, this video of mostly peaceful protesters looting what appears to be a Nike store will serve as the USA’s epitaph:

This is particularly emblematic because Nike helped the Black Lives Matter cancer metastasize by making Colin Kaepernick — a bench-warming athlete who had reinvented himself as an anti-police, anti-American, black supremacist activist — into the public face of the corporation.

Expanding Concept of Rape by Redefining Consent

Critical theory, the ideology of our ruling class, is an outgrowth of postmodernism, which stresses the power of language to reshape what people think of as reality. Consequently, leftists have become masters at changing the definition of words. “Liberal” now means “leftist.” “Infrastructure” now means “whatever Democrats see fit to waste other people’s money on.” New York State Assemblywoman Rebecca Seawright has proposed a bill that weaponizes laws against rape by redefining the word “consent.”

Seawright’s proposed definition, via Simple Justice:

“Consent” means freely given knowledgeable and informed agreement; such agreement must be obtained without the use of malice such as forcible compulsion, duress, coercion, deception, fraud, concealment or artifice.

Consider the ramifications. “But you told me you were a big shot or I wouldn’t have put out” would qualify as a rape accusation.

You might say the accuser is a rapist too for wearing false eyelashes, which is artifice. However, the probable objective is to incarcerate men, who are the worst people on earth after Caucasians, according to liberal ideology.

What “malice” might mean in this context will be open to interpretation. Hate crime laws have opened a can of worms by trying to criminalize the way people feel.

As Simple Justice notes, this redefinition would potentially turn any sexual encounter that is regretted afterward into assault:

If so inclined, one need only parse the courting ritual for a claim that’s sufficiently wiggly to constitute deception and, boom, rape.

Daily Wire reminds us that undermining justice by distorting the concept of consent is old news on college campuses, which serve as incubation chambers for every new disease that leftists unleash on us.

Now Fonts Are Racist

Democrats are terrified that Asians might assimilate into American culture, as Italian and Irish immigrants did before them. They want Asians to join the alienated cultural Marxist coalition against the core population. That’s why they manufacture racism against Asians that does not come from other members of the coalition (namely, blacks). CNN does its part by proclaiming that Chinese-looking fonts are racist:

Via Summit News:

[CNN propagandist] Anne Quito claimed that “chop suey” fonts to communicate “Asianness” in food packaging, posters and ad campaigns” are further evidence of “discrimination and systemic racism.” …

She made this ludicrous assertion despite admitting that the fonts were immediately adopted by Chinese immigrants who came to the United States to set up businesses.

These immigrants must have fallen victim to what Marx called “false consciousness.” They are the Uncle Toms of the Orient.

In contrast, the Greek-looking fonts on Greek restaurant signs are not racist. It is impossible to be racist against Europeans, because white people deserve racism against them, since they are racist and therefore bad. If this doesn’t make sense to you, you are a racist. Just ask CNN.

If the illustrations in Dr Seuss books can be racist for showing Chinese people eating with chopsticks and wearing traditional Chinese hats, the sign at the neighborhood Chinese restaurant can be racist for using Chinese-looking fonts. It may also be racist for Chinese restaurants to serve Chinese food.

Fortunately, with every passing day, a few more people figure out that if everything is racist, nothing is racist. Leftists’ grip on power becomes slightly less secure.

Parent Demands to Marry Own Child

The slippery slope became steep once social engineers canceled the “holy” in “holy matrimony.” Did anyone think it would stop at gay marriage? In New York, a parent demands the right to marry his/her child:

The pining parent seeks to remain anonymous because their request is “an action that a large segment of society views as morally, socially and biologically repugnant,” according to court papers.

The success of the LGBT blitzkrieg demonstrates how quickly public opinion can be turned around.

According to a claim filed in Manhattan Federal Court, the parent hopes to achieve “a greater level of expression, intimacy and spirituality” by having the relationship officially certified as a marriage.

“The proposed spouses are adults,” the filing says. “The proposed spouses are biological parent and child. The proposed spouses are unable to procreate together.”

For all we know, they can’t procreate because they are the same sex. We are not in Kansas anymore.

Incest is a third-degree felony under New York law, punishable by up to four years behind bars, and incestuous marriages are considered void with the spouses facing a fine and up to six months in jail.

However, disapproving of people’s behavior based on “who they love” now qualifies as thoughtcrime per Democrat dogma.

Woody Allen married his adopted daughter back in 1997. No matter how far the envelope is pushed, someone will push it further still.

Michigan and the Covid Conundrum

They call it the Covid Conundrum. Why is it that the states that lock down the hardest to fight the ChiCom virus have the highest infection rates?

The answer could not possibly be that lockdowns make the situation worse, as many have known for some time. So the media depletes the dregs of its credibility by pushing improbable theories to explain why Covid is going away in relatively free states like Texas.

Meanwhile, the worst state for Covid is Michigan, where Cruella Whitmer has inflicted all manner of arbitrary decrees, at one point even banning the purchase of garden seeds.

Speaking of Michigan,

A top aide to Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer vacationed in Florida after the governor urged residents against traveling amid worst-in-the-nation Covid transmission rates in the state.

Tricia Foster, the governor’s chief operating officer, posted photos to Facebook of herself vacationing in Siesta Key earlier this week.

The compulsion to show off on Fakebook overwhelms even the survival instinct. Foster was put in charge of the vaccine rollout strategy, so she ought to have some clue regarding coronavirus politics.

“This is a partisan attack from a garbage white nationalist website,” [Whitmer] spokesman Bobby Leddy said in a statement.

I should have guessed that white nationalist fiends were responsible for exposing this valiant public servant to the ridicule of the little people. The reference is apparently to Breitbart.

Michigan has led the nation in Covid-19 cases for seven consecutive weeks, and is now reporting over 7,000 coronavirus infections per day.

This comes after a solid year of some of the most draconian Covid restrictions in the country. Yet again we see that tyranny is an end in itself, and ineffective to serve any other end.

Whitmer frets that people might travel to the free state Florida and bring back Covid. Florida has been demonized by authoritarians as a result of DeSantis handling the virus much more effectively than the moonbat tyrants running states like California, New York, and Michigan. The media became enraged; 60 Minutes launched a smear job at DeSantis so defamatory that it blew up in their faces. The Whitmer Administration is safe from 60 Minutes smear jobs, but not from the incompetence and arrogance that characterize liberal rule.

Democrat Replacement Strategy Explained

The reason the border has been left open during an ongoing massive invasion, despite the drugs, crime, and Covid pouring into the country, is that the Democrat Party wants to displace the American population with people more likely to vote for it. Tucker Carlson explains the situation is succinctly:

Contra the commentary of the tweeter above, this not “white replacement theory”; it is “American replacement theory.” Everyone with a stake in America is getting displaced. It isn’t only whites whose wealth will be expropriated and redistributed to buy the votes of the anarchic incoming hordes.

Black Lives Matter Founder on Luxury Housing Buying Binge

It didn’t seem likely that self-described Marxist Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors would settle for her pricey new home near Malibu as her primary residence. Sure enough:

As [riots] broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records.

Bernie Sanders, eat your heart out.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent. …

“People who buy at the Albany are buying their fourth or fifth home,” said a resort worker who did not want to be identified. “This is not a second-home residence. It’s extremely high-end, and people are coming here for complete and total privacy.”

All that money woke corporations ostentatiously shovel at Black Lives Matter had to go somewhere. It certainly isn’t going to improve the lives of black people — with the exception of the ones running the scam.

It used to be that you got rich in this country by making things. Now, you get rich by breaking things.

In addition to the generous cut she presumably receives from BLM donations, Cullors has capitalized on her divisive moonbattery with the book When They Call You a Terrorist. Also,

In October, the activist signed “a multi-platform” deal with Warner Bros. Television Group to help produce content for “black voices who have been historically marginalized,” she said in a statement.

Poor marginalized Patrisse. The heart bleeds.

It’s also not clear how much Khan-Cullors makes in salary as one of the leaders of the movement, since its finances are split among both non-profit and for-profit entities and difficult to trace.

If she is smart enough to muddy the finances, no doubt she takes care not to buy properties in the sort of neighborhoods her followers burn down.

Arctic Summer Sea Ice Gone for 7 Years?

John Kerry must know what he is talking about on climate issues, or Biden’s handlers would not have made him Climate Czar, putting him in charge of sacrificing our freedom, standard of living, and national interests to the quixotic campaign to improve the allegedly problematic weather. According to Kerry’s sonorous bloviations, which are based on the unassailable holy writ of politically approved Scientists, the Arctic likely started having ice-free summers 7 years ago:

Wait — now The Scientists say Arctic summer sea ice could disappear by 2035. They are learning to push their predictions back a little further so that people won’t laugh as hard when they have to push them back yet again. Or maybe all those hideous, extravagantly subsidized wind turbines are cooling the planet.

Laughing at AOC Triggers Visit From Police

Just a few years ago, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was a ditzy bartender from Westchester. She was plucked from obscurity by the Justice Democrats and made into a prominent member of the ruling oligarchy. Now, she is a person it is dangerous for even other moonbats to criticize. Consider this pair of tweets by podcaster Ryan Wentz:

These earned the underwhelmed Wentz a visit from police:

Wentz told The Grayzone, “The officers said, ‘We got a warning about a sitting member of Congress. And it was because of your tweet, which tagged them in it.’ And then they just wouldn’t back down from this accusation that I threatened to kill her.”

The California Highway Patrol indicated on Twitter that it had acted on a call from Capitol Police.

Good thing the Capitol Police don’t show this kind of diligence when it comes to keeping rowdy mobs out of the Capitol, or the Democrats wouldn’t have the January 6 riot to endlessly milk for propaganda.

AOC has a gift for perceiving nonexistent threats as a means of attacking those alleged to have made them. Following January 6, she accused Ted Cruz of trying to murder her.

Her people deny that they sicced the police on Wentz. Maybe they didn’t have to:

AOC has in the past asked her supporters to report critics to social media censors.

There is no indication that Wentz ever threatened any member of Congress. However, he did tweet a video that exposed AOC as an inarticulate idiot, setting off an avalanche of ridicule. Hurting people’s feelings qualifies as violence according to moonbat ideology. When left-wing podcaster Jimmy Dore criticized her for not pushing hard enough for socialized medicine, AOC squeaked, “That’s not tone, that’s violence.”

Wentz does not provide his actual identity in his profile on Twitter, which apparently handed his personal information over to authorities. Odds appear slim that a warrant was involved.

An official with the Capitol Police says that although Wentz didn’t actually threaten AOC, he was tagged in a now-deleted tweet by someone else that qualified as a threat:

“Obviously as you can imagine, anytime there’s anything that could be a perceived threat, we’re going to talk to everybody involved, whether they’re directly involved or indirectly involved,” the official said.

Obviously.

The police did not drag Wentz off to a basement interrogation chamber and pry off his fingernails. Their visit was for intimidation purposes only. But anyone aware of what goes on in other countries knows where we will end up if we continue to let Democrats make America “more like the rest of the world.”
