A Day Without Police: Make America More Like Baltimore

Leftist outfits like CNN help to hype Day Without Immigrants protests, intended to propagandize in favor of illegal immigration. Maybe police should respond to the endless grief they get from the liberal establishment by staging something similar. A Day Without Police would look something like Baltimore:

While the three-year spike in violent crime in Baltimore draws most of the attention, business owners across the city have suffered a similar increase in commercial robberies. Such crime has risen 88 percent in the last five years, from 560 commercial robberies in 2013 to more than 1,000 last year.

Business owners are also complaining of threats outside their stores: drug dealing, intimidation, stabbings and shootings.

The 3-year spike in violent crime corresponds to the time that has passed since the Freddie Gray spectacle, which centered on a Lowlife of Color whose death was exploited to demonize the police and set off race riots. Being leftists, municipal authorities sided with the rioters. Baltimore police who didn’t quit in disgust have been forced to maintain a low profile, allowing crime to skyrocket. The city is no longer safe to visit, much less live in.

Imagine trying to run a business there:

“Our members are very concerned,” said Cailey Locklair Tolle, president of the Maryland Retailers Association. “Unfortunately, a lot of our members don’t relocate. It’s a massive endeavor. A lot of times they just go out of business.”

Fewer businesses mean higher unemployment means more government dependency and general societal decay mean more support for the Democrats in charge. This same vicious cycle worked wonders in Detroit, driving out hated Caucasians and guaranteeing Democrats >90% of the vote in every election.

The media ought to drop its post-Parkland anti–Second Amendment campaign and push for a Day Without Police instead. The more of America looks like Baltimore, the closer liberals are to having accomplished their objectives.

Expanding to Other Planets Denounced as Sexist

We may have to hold off on exploring the final frontier. A piece at NBC reveals that “the patriarchal race to colonize Mars is just another example of male entitlement”:

The desire to colonize — to have unquestioned, unchallenged and automatic access to something, to any type of body, and to use it at will — is a patriarchal one.

Elon Musk’s desire to expand the human race to other planets is denounced as a “Columbusing attitude” and “imperialist ethos.” Musk says it will ensure the survival of the human race…

Rather, the impulse to colonize — to colonize lands, to colonize peoples, and, now that we may soon be technologically capable of doing so, colonizing space — has its origins in gendered power structures. Entitlement to power, control, domination and ownership. The presumed right to use and abuse something and then walk away to conquer and colonize something new.

If our ancestors had been liberals, they never would have ventured out of their caves.

In accordance with the doctrine of “intersectionality,” space exploration isn’t only bad because of feminism, but also because of environmentalism:

This 21st century form of imperialism is the direct result of men giving up on the planet they have all but destroyed. …

The raping and pillaging of the Earth, and the environmental chaos that doing so has unleashed, are integral to the process of colonization. And the connection of the treatment of Mother Earth to women is more than symbolic: Study after study has shown that climate change globally affects women more than men.

Similarly meaningful studies could be used to determine how many microaggressions would fit on the head of a pin.

This means that while men compete with each other over whose rocket is the biggest, fastest, and best, and send playthings off to become flashy space junk, women around the world are fighting to stay alive against violent assaults on their personhood — and their planet.

Yes, the very planet is in peril. The author, Marcie Bianco of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University, breathlessly concludes:

Houston, we have a problem.

And it’s the patriarchy.

There is no great accomplishment that progressives won’t denounce — including future accomplishments like colonizing other planets. A step forward for mankind is a step in the wrong direction from the point of view of moonbats.

NYU Professor Says MAGA Maggots Are Feasting on the Corpses of Murdered Schoolchildren

It is unseemly at best the way authoritarian leftists immediately recruited Parkland high school students to serve as foot soldiers in their war on the Constitution, barely waiting for their classmates’ bodies to cool. But be careful about calling them on their shamelessness. Twitter user Kambree Kawahine Koa hit a nerve with this remark:

Mark A. R. Kleiman, a Professor of Public Policy at New York University’s Marron Institute of Urban Management, issued a response to her. Kleiman hasn’t even seen a need to delete this tweet:

Obviously, if anyone has been feasting on corpses, it is the progressives standing atop them to advance their agenda. Only full knowledge of his own hypocrisy could explain the ferocity of Kleiman’s rage.

Imagine what sort of grade one of his students would receive after turning in a paper consisting of less than 100% pure moonbattery.

Tavis Smiley Sues Ultra-Liberal PBS for Being Racist

As mentioned earlier, once you enter the realm of political correctness, you can never be P.C. enough. Unendurably moonbatty, socialistically funded PBS has proven its P.C. bona fides by providing a soapbox for race radical Tavis Smiley, who likely would not have the position if not for his politically preferred pigmentation. You had to know what would happen when they indefinitely suspended his show. That’s right — out comes the race card:

Smiley filed a lawsuit Tuesday accusing PBS of using a sham investigation into sexual misconduct complaints as a pretext to suspend his long-running talk show.

In the complaint, Smiley states that his relationship with the public broadcaster had been rocky for years, and that he was not viewed as a “team player.”

Incredibly, being a jerk who is difficult to work with is considered part of his grounds to sue.

He also accuses PBS of racial bias in its oversight of his program, saying that the network criticized his controversial black guests but not the controversial white ones.

Smiley also accused PBS of conducting audits of his books, while not auditing the books of shows that are managed by white people.

Everything is race with some people. Without it, they would have to face life armed only with their own merits.

The show was suspended due to what PBS calls a “pattern of sexual misconduct in the workplace,” involving Smiley and subordinates. He is not the first to defend himself from #MeToo mania with the race card.

Pandering to Smiley’s ideology makes PBS fair game for his crybully tactics. Holding blacks accountable for their behavior is racist. Therefore, PBS is racist.

Alyssa Milano Explains Why the Second Amendment Must Be Repealed

We won’t be needing the Second Amendment anymore. The fundamental right of self-defense is no longer fashionable, according to Tinseltown bubblehead Alyssa Milano, who buttresses her thoughtful arguments with sturdy exclamation points:

Mozart died in 1791. Presumably his music is also an outmoded equivalent of cholera and chamber pots and ought to be banned.

If anything should be done with the Second Amendment, it should be switched to become the First Amendment, since it is the most important, safeguarding all the rest. Only an armed populace can be assured liberty under authorities elected by fools like Alyssa Milano.

Past nuggets of her wisdom include:

Like her fellow weighty intellectual Jennifer Lawrence, Alyssa is reportedly taking some time off acting to focus on social justice activism. Stand by for more laughs.

Woman Sues Because She Saw Bigfoot

Utopia has already arrived — for lawyers. You can now sue anyone for any reason. Claudia Ackley of California is suing because she says she saw Bigfoot perched in a tree near Lake Arrowhead:

Ackley called authorities to report the Sasquatch sighting, but they insisted she had seen a bear. That denial inspired Ackley to file a lawsuit against the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the state Natural Resources Agency last month, accusing California of dereliction of duty for failing to protect Bigfoot and infringing on her constitutional rights.

Her suit is supported by actual proof — video of the beast in the tree taken by her young daughter:

The video, which was included in the local ABC news segment, shows what appears to be trees and shadows.

Even if the suit doesn’t pan out, at least it might lead to a friendship:

[T]he San Bernardino Sun reports she has left snacks, including soda, Fritos, and fruit, near the site of her spotting, “along with a voice-activated book with pictures inside, made by Ackley in an effort to communicate with Bigfoot.”

Ackley describes an 800-lb creature resembling a hairy Neanderthal. Interestingly, Rosie O’Donnell’s whereabouts at the time of the sighting are unknown.

Not Even Black Panther Is P.C. Enough

Like other totalitarian movements, political correctness is destined to devour itself, because nothing, no matter how P.C., could ever be P.C. enough. Consider Black Panther, a movie devoted to deifying blacks, with an almost exclusively “diverse” (i.e., black) cast, named after a communist anti-Caucasian hate group, based on a comic book series by moonbat supreme Ta-Nehisi Coates. Its shortcoming? No homosexuals:

Actress Florence Kasumba stoked the flames of outrage when she revealed that scenes of lesbian flirtation filmed during production were left on the cutting-room floor. …

When asked about the deleted scene, screenwriter Joe Robert Cole said there were talks about including a gay love story in the movie, but those plans didn’t pan out. …

This led to accusations from the gay rights community of “LGBT erasure.”

The Advocate, a popular LGBT magazine, panned Mr. Cole’s explanation for cutting the scene as “vague.”

Not to worry, LGBT advocates. Movies are made by progressives, who are defined by their compulsion to erode everything worth preserving. Also, due to the lack of substance in the entertainment industry, envelopes must constantly be pushed to generate interest. Within a few years, audiences will see the world saved by flying fairies in tights with capes.

But there is a long line waiting behind them for their turn to complain: pedophiles, necrophiliacs, coprophiliacs, et cetera. Then there are other marginalized groups that will insist on sufficient cinematic representation: lepers, quadriplegics, people with hair lips, and so on.

Political correctness is the ultimate bully. The more you give in to it, the more it will demand.

Degenerating into Farce, Yale Offers Course on “Contructions of Whiteness”

Since Nazi-style death camps are not a realistic option at this point, progressives rely on universities to abolish whiteness. For example, Ivy League Yale offers a course entitled “Contructions of Whiteness”:

Taught by Professor Claudia Rankine, the class is divided into eight topics: Constructions of Whiteness, White Property, White Masculinity, White Femininity, White Speech, White Prosperity, White Spaces and White Imagination, according to the syllabus.

The nutty professor is a privileged Woman of Color. Consider the improbability of white professors teaching courses on how much they hate blacks and it will become clear which group is “marginalized,” to borrow a term from cultural Marxists.

The goal of the class is to “create a lab for the construction of counternarratives around whiteness in any creative form: play, poem, memoir, etc.,” states the syllabus.

You could probably earn an A+ or even a gold star by cutting KKK figures out of construction paper and using crayons to scribble the names of famous white people on them.

This is what liberal ideology, combined with Affirmative Action, has done to even the most prestigious schools.

Posturing Dallas Mayor Pro Tem Barks That NRA Convention Is Not Welcome

As any liberal could tell you, Nikolas Cruz did not kill 17 people in Parkland, Florida; the NRA did, in cahoots with any politician the NRA is likely to support. Consequently, Dallas Mayor Pro Tempore Dwaine Caraway proclaims it is not welcome to bring a large amount of money into his town by holding its annual convention there:

Caraway said that the NRA event, scheduled for May 3-6 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, is inappropriate for Dallas after the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., last week. …

Caraway said asking the NRA to reconsider was “a tough call” but would put the city’s residents first.

Actually, it puts his own demagogic posturing first. Even Caraway knows he can’t keep the NRA out on the grounds that moonbats think guns are icky. A contract with the convention center has been signed.

One reason the NRA’s support for the Second Amendment is so admirable is that without it we might find ourselves at the mercy of people like this:

CNN, MSNBC Unwittingly Collude with Russia

Robert Mueller’s endless investigations have finally uncovered some Russian collusion, even if it was unwitting:

One of the revelations in Friday’s indictment handed down by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was that alleged Russian attempts to sow disunity in 2016 included the organization of both pro- and anti-Trump rallies in New York City on the Saturday after Election Day.

A check of their November 12 coverage showed both CNN and MSNBC gave enthusiastic coverage to the Russian-organized anti-Trump rally that day, with live reports every hour.

Typical of the programming on CNN and MSNBC, exaggerating the newsworthiness of this event was a form of propaganda. No need for Russians to pay them though; media moonbats eagerly promote division for free, even at the cost of viewers who wander away in search of real news. That’s why Russians have been calling them “useful idiots” since Lenin’s time.

Only a hostile foreign power could regard these idiots as useful:

Parkland Student Sees Through Media’s Agenda

Following the tragedy in Parkland, the media has had no trouble finding young tools who can be exploited to promote an authoritarian agenda by blaming Nikolas Cruz’s killing spree on our right to bear arms. But some students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School catch on faster than others:

Brandon Minoff … thinks the media is using the shooting as an opportunity to push for gun control more than they are reporting the facts as neutral observers.

“I think it’s the media,” Minoff said, referring to whom he believes is promoting the gun control narrative in response to the shooting. “They exploit everything to make it political. They’re more concerned about gun control at this moment rather than the fact that there were 17 people that were killed.”

Minoff astutely realizes that the scale of the tragedy was caused not by the Constitution, but by insufficient security and the inability of good guys to shoot back. This may seem obvious to people who have been around for a while, but to see through the liberal media’s malevolent B.S. at his age is commendable.

The Golden State Is Becoming a S***hole

In addition to being the most liberal, San Francisco is the second most expensive city in the USA. Yet it is an open sewer:

An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area … is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station.

The area surveyed yielded 100 drug needles and over 300 piles of feces. That is the legacy of the flower children who descended upon San Francisco in the 1960s, and of the moonbats who have ruled the town since.

“We see poop, we see pee, we see needles, and we see trash,” said teacher Adelita Orellana. “Sometimes [children] ask what is it, and that’s a conversation that’s a little difficult to have with a 2-year old, but we just let them know that those things are full of germs, that they are dangerous, and they should never be touched.”

Kids don’t have to touch anything to be in danger. Inhaling dried feces can lead to potentially lethal airborne viruses like rotavirus.

Dr. Lee Riley is an infectious disease scientist at University of California – Berkeley … Riley believes parts of the city may be even dirtier than slums in some developing countries.

That’s because even the inhabitants of Third World slums will try to make their surroundings livable. Derelicts crap and move on.

No worries; liberals have a solution. They want to spend more public money to make San Francisco a more convenient place to be homeless by providing another 1,000 temporary shelter beds. That won’t reduce the exploding homeless population.

It takes city workers 30 minutes to clean up a single mound of human waste. Unsurprisingly, they aren’t able to keep up. If current trends continue, the Bay Area will eventually vanish beneath a mountain of human dung, bristling like a cactus with junkies’ needles.

San Francisco isn’t alone, as a bike ride through Orange County demonstrates. This video appears to have been prepared by a moonbat with poor spelling skills, but the footage makes an excellent point — even if it wasn’t the point that was intended. How anyone could see it and want still more unskilled immigrants pouring in from the Third World is beyond comprehension. Yet California remains a sanctuary state, where local officials will not cooperate with the enforcement of immigration law.
