Watch Teachers’ Union President Drop Kid Off at Open Private Preschool

If anyone could more perfectly personify teachers’ unions than Sarah Chambers, who defended pointless school closures from a beach in San Juan while indulging in “yummy seafood mofongo,” it would be Berkeley Federation of Teachers President and coronavirus hypocrite Matt Meyer, who has been caught on video dropping his 2-year-old off at a private preschool for the in-person instruction that public school students have been denied, thanks to unions and the Democrats who are owned by them.

Compliments of guerillaMomz:

Can’t a white guy in dreadlocks and a hoodie be brought up on charges of cultural appropriation?

Fox News reports:

The Berkeley Unified School District reached a tentative agreement with the Berkeley Federation of Teachers earlier this month to reopen public schools in March and April, contingent upon staff members receiving COVID-19 vaccinations.

By March, they mean March 29. Most grades would not open until mid-April at the soonest.

Meanwhile, teachers identified as high-risk individuals who document that they have condition’s [sic] on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s high risk list, who live with someone who has those conditions, or who is a caretaker as defined by a medical professional for someone with these conditions, will be allowed to continue to work remotely.

The CDC list is extensive. Is someone in your household obese (almost half the population supposedly is)? If not, does someone smoke, or have high blood pressure? Then you shouldn’t have to come to work.

These schools never should have closed. The only reason they are not already open is that powerful unions prefer teachers to do a minimum of work for a maximum of pay.

Amazon Cancels Clarence Thomas

Black History Month is over now, but don’t expect the liberal establishment to be any less aggressive about promoting its enthusiasm for all things Afro-American. Wait — did I say all things? I mean, all things Afro-American that can be exploited to advance the liberal agenda. Clarence Thomas is one of the most accomplished blacks in American history. But he won’t be getting his share of the reverence. Amazon even canceled him during Black History Month.

Breitbart reports:

Recently, Amazon Prime dropped Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, an acclaimed and popular PBS documentary on Justice Clarence Thomas, making it unavailable to stream during Black History Month. …

Amazon Prime created an entire Amplify Black Voices page on its site that “feature[s] a curated collection of titles to honor Black History Month across four weekly themes (Black Love, Black Joy, Black History Makers, and Black Girl Magic).” There are scores of films available to stream, including four films available on the Amazon Prime site to stream (two docudramas and two documentaries) on Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, a liberal icon and our nation’s first black Supreme Court justice. There are even two films (one docudrama and one documentary) on Anita Hill, who came forward during Thomas’ confirmation hearing to claim that Thomas had sexually harassed her. (Hill’s story never added up and, and as reflected in a NY Times/CBS News poll after the Senate confirmation hearings, American men and women believed Thomas by a 2-1 margin.)

Nonetheless, Anita Hill’s is a black voice the liberal establishment wants amplified, because she tried to destroy a conservative with scurrilous allegations. Marshall’s is too, because he was a leftist. Clarence Thomas, a persuasive proponent of fundamental American principles, is not someone Jeff Bezos et al. want us to hear.

The Created Equal DVD is still available for purchase on Amazon, and it is in fact number 38 of all documentaries on that site. In contrast, the RBG documentary on liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is not even in the top 100 but is still streaming on Amazon Prime.

This is despite RBG being hyped by the liberal establishment. They can tell us what to like. They can even tell us that we like it. But they can’t make us watch hagiographies of pernicious moonbats. They can, however, quietly disappear thought criminals like Clarence Thomas.

On the Amazon website, [Created Equal] has received a spectacular 4.9 star rating (out of 5 stars) from customer reviews, with 1,243 ratings.

No wonder audiences love the documentary. Thomas’s story is compelling. He grew up in poverty, embraced leftism, rejected it in favor individual liberty, and became — in the words of lefty legal writer Ian Millhiser — “the most important legal thinker of his generation and the most significant [Supreme Court] appointment of the last forty years.”

But major corporations are no longer primarily concerned with giving us what we want. They give us what we are supposed to want. We are not supposed to want diversity if it means diversity of opinion.

Inflation Is Now Good

Even the liberal media that together with Big Tech put Democrats in power admits that massive wasteful spending will result in inflation. If they still manage to jack up the minimum wage, that will compound the problem. But since it is Democrats debasing American currency, inflation is now good.

From Business Insider:

Experts are growing increasingly hopeful the US economy will rebound in 2021, but there’s a price to pay for that. The price of most things, actually. …

This may not be friendly news for Americans’ wallets, but higher prices and a demand for commodities without overheating is a sign of a healthier economy and a crucial next step toward the US’ economic recovery. …

Wall Street economists see signs that everyday essentials like houses, gas, and healthcare are about to get more expensive.

Having an administration vehemently hostile to the fossil fuels we need will not help the price of gas.

We are told that the rise in inflation will be “sharp but temporary” and that it is a good thing because it will mean the economy is recovering from the coronavirus lockdowns. But it is not such a good thing if you are living on a fixed income or relying on your savings.

Outside the liberal establishment, Winter Watch has a less sanguine take on the potential tsunami of inflation heading our way:

“You have faulty price measurements and policy makers linking their decisions to faulty price measurements,” says Joseph Carson, a former Alliance Bernstein and Commerce Dept. economist. The evidence of higher than [US Bureau of Labor Statistics] reported inflation is overwhelming.

This is all before the impact of a $1.9 trillion stimulus orgy. Thus, the population will learn what the Great Reset is really all about — namely, impoverishment in the form of a Weimar or Venezuelan inflationary inferno.

Canceling the value of our savings could be helpful in making us helpless enough to comply with the Great Reset.

Feds Distribute Migrant Invasion Throughout USA

To call our rulers quislings would be an understatement. So far as I know, Vidkun Quisling did not distribute Nazi occupiers throughout his country at the expense of Norwegian taxpayers. Biden’s handlers, on the other hand, have been doing the equivalent with the invasion force that is conquering and forever transforming the United States to ensure permanent leftist dominance.

HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement tells Breitbart that it has…

…authorized programs to pay transport fees for unaccompanied children (including airline tickets), including escort transport (where necessary by airline or ORR policy) in order to facilitate release of children to approved sponsors.

Rosemary Jenks of NumbersUSA explains what’s going on:

“The administration wants open borders — they want anyone from around the world to come here as fast as they possibly can,” she said. But the resulting rush of migrants is forcing officials to hide the unpopular migration as it arrives at the border.

We can’t have the Third World invasion force concentrated in a single area. It must be disseminated immediately, so that it is not as obvious that we are being conquered — and so that the invasion cannot be reversed.

As for the cost, Homeland “Security” Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is considering diverting money from the border wall to finance transport for the incoming hordes.

Thought Police Crack Down on Matt Christiansen

At first, they went after fringe characters who are easy to demonize, like Alex Jones. But just as the campaign against Robert E. Lee quickly and predictably led to the cancelation of Abraham Lincoln, the thought police are already targeting even the calmest and most reasonable conservatives, including the esteemed countermoonbat Matt Christiansen.

Christiansen has been canceled by Streamlabs, which produces livestream software, apparently not because he said anything in particular that was “offensive,” but because he makes good arguments against leftism and is therefore regarded as a threat to the liberal establishment. Sarah Corriher, another threat to the liberal establishment who is no doubt in leftists’ crosshairs, explains the situation:

Christiansen was denied a refund for a service that he paid for but was also denied. This is theft, as surely as when Google’s AdSense and Taboola abruptly cut off advertising on without paying what they owed. It’s okay to steal from canceled thought criminals. They are no longer people, once they have been unpersoned.

Boston Suspends Advanced Classes Because Equity

The ideology of our rulers can be summed up by their favorite word, “equity.” Equity means holding all of us at the same level of achievement.

To do this requires pervasive control. At first glance, control seems to be the means and equity the end. Actually, control is the ultimate objective. Equity is the means; it serves as a pretext for exerting greater control.

Equity also requires the abolition of excellence. Like America’s founding principles, excellence affirms the individual. Leftists oppose the individual, who is harder to control than interchangeable members of a herd. That’s why Boston public schools are suspending Advanced Work Classes, a selective program for high-performing students.

Quacks Superintendent Brenda Cassellius:

“There’s a lot of work we have to do in the district to be antiracist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education.”

It is the job of an educrat to spit up oxymorons like “equitable and excellent” without choking on them.

“Equitable” does not mean equal opportunity. It means equal outcome. If disfavored groups like whites and Asians are more likely to excel, then children will not be permitted to excel.

A district analysis of the program found that more than 70 percent of students enrolled in the program were white and Asian, even though nearly 80 percent of all Boston public school students are Hispanic and Black.

If equity were imposed on nations, every country on earth would be Haiti.

The program was open to all students in the Boston Public Schools who took a test known as Terra Nova in the third grade and received a high score. Those students were placed in a lottery conducted by the central administration office, and lottery winners received letters inviting them to apply to the program.

Maybe we could address historic injustices by putting only students with low scores in advanced placement classes. It would make as much sense as anything else liberal social engineers inflict on public schools.

Students in the program have the opportunity to study subjects in greater depth and are offered more schoolwork than the traditional curriculum requires.

Never mind; making historically disadvantaged students do more schoolwork would be racist.

Leftism renders talent superfluous and effort futile. In Utopia, they will never let you achieve anything on your own. The only way to get anywhere will be through favor bestowed by Big Government.

Bill Maher Realizes That Cancel Culture Stinks

Bill Maher is a moonbat for the most part and often an exceedingly annoying one, but he is right on leftist cancel culture:

It’s almost as if Maher is starting to understand that the guillotine does not spare the Jacobins who helped build it. He knows his turn at cancelation will come. Let’s hope others wise up and show some spine, before the situation degenerates even further into Reign of Terror territory.

AOC’s Craziest Excretions

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Future of the Democrat Party, has projectile-vomited massive quantities of moonbattery over the past 2 years. Mr Reagan attempts to narrow it all down to the 10 craziest things she has said and fails. But he did manage to narrow it down to 20:

20. Cauliflower is racist.

19. Democrats should take back all three chambers of government.

18. Unemployment was low under Trump because everyone had two jobs.

17. There is crime in Democrat-run cities that have collapsed into lawlessness because people are stealing bread.

16. Southern states need to be liberated from “economic, social, and racial oppression.”

15. It is not okay to have children.

14. The world is going to end in 12 years.

13. Leftists need to occupy everything — every airport, every border, every ICE office, everything.

12. Being factually correct is not important if you are morally right.

11. While getting owned by Thomas Homan, former acting director of ICE, she had nothing coherent to say.

10. White people cause catastrophic climate change.

9. The USA is literally running concentration camps on the southern border.

8. AOC getting elected to Congress was an accomplishment comparable to the moon landing.

7. Before taking office, she threatened Donald Trump Jr with a subpoena for trolling her.

6. She tried to talk like a black at a NAN event.

5. “I’m the boss.”

4. “We’re gonna flip this seat red.”

3. She displayed absolute ignorance regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

2. She expressed wonder and terror upon discovering a garbage disposal and could not figure out what it might be used for.

1. She accused Ted Cruz of trying to have her murdered.

For context and to see for yourself that it really is possible for a single person to spew this much stupidity over a span of just a couple of years, watch the video:

A country that consents to be ruled by deranged and malevolent idiots has no future.

Matt Christiansen on the Smith College Hate Hoax

Hate crimes are a major component of the liberal narrative. Like the rest of the narrative, this component is a lie. Despite the large number of hate hoaxes, the number of reported hate crimes has actually been going down.

Matt Christiansen lifts the lid on the phony hate crime phenomenon, with a focus on the absurd spectacle at outlandishly expensive Smith College:

Despite the privileged Oumou Kanoute’s lies being both easily debunked and malicious, despite nothing of significance having happened even had she been telling the truth, educrats and other liberal establishmentarians exploited the farce to ruin lives and inflict their pernicious ideology.

Meanwhile, as we are commanded to regard Oumou Kanoute as oppressed by racism, white students are openly regarded as an “invasive species” on college campuses.

KFC Launches Chicken-Free Chicken Sandwich

Bill Gates and other moonbat social engineers will be delighted by a new product KFC is trying out in Malaysia. Via Poultry World:

KFC Malaysia has launched its Zero Chicken Burger, a plant-based and meatless burger that promises the flavour of Colonel’s secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices, but which has no chicken. …

The chicken-free chicken burger has been created in collaboration with meat substitute brand Quorn and carries a halal-certified meat-free patty…

Regrettably, the chicken-free chicken sandwich cannot be certified as 100% politically correct. It does not meet vegetarian much less vegan requirements, because as KFC Malaysia warns, it is “prepared sharing the same cooking equipment as other KFC products.”

ChiComs Subject US Diplomats to Anal Intrusion

If one story sums up the relationship between the Chinese Communist Party and the Biden Administration, this is it:

U.S. diplomats in China were subjected to anal swab tests for Covid-19, a Department of State spokesperson confirmed Thursday, adding that a protest had been lodged with the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The United States had received assurances from China that the tests were done in error and that diplomatic personnel were exempt from this specific testing requirement, the spokesperson said.

The point has been made; making it a permanent policy would be unnecessarily messy.
