You can see why lefties rely so heavily on government coercion. This assault on the Keg Mansion steakhouse in Toronto by vegan activists from Direct Action Everywhere Toronto demonstrates how miserably they fail when they attempt to persuade people with their arguments:
Whatever happened to the men in white coats with their butterfly nets?

Much like Obama, the leftist liars at the Los Angeles Times truly jumped the shark in their rush to exploit the shootings at Umpqua Community College. This heading blasts across the page in bold type:
The piece does not mention that Chris Harper-Mercer’s mother, with whom he lived, is black. That gives the maniac the same number of black parents as our Historic First Black President.
Skepticism is advised regarding his supposed enthusiasm for white supremacism, and everything else out of the liberal establishment media that fits the agenda a little too perfectly.
Not all Germans want their nation to be extinguished beneath massive waves of largely unassimilable Muslim immigrants. The problem for Angela Merkel is convincing each of them that they are alone, and that everyone else is on board with the monumental treason she is committing. The mainstream media is helpful in this regard, being controlled by politically correct leftists who regard European civilization as a disease to be cured. But what about social media?
Looks like Merkel will be getting some help there too:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were caught on a hot mic at the United Nations [last] Saturday discussing the removing of certain posts from the prolific site.
Merkel brought up the subject of anti-immigrant posts appearing on the German version of Facebook, as the country grapples with how to handle the largest refugee crisis since World War II.
“We need to do some work.” Zuckerberg says. The German chancellor presses him. “Are you working on this?” she asks in English. “Yeah,” the Facebook CEO responds before the introductory remarks of the lunch meeting cuts off their conversation.
“We are committed to working closely with the German government on this important issue,” Facebook spokeswoman Debbie Frost said via e-mail to BloombergBusiness. “We think the best solutions to dealing with people who make racist and xenophobic comments can be found when service providers, government and civil society all work together to address this common challenge.”
Zuckerberg is an ideal ally to facilitate the invasion of Germany. He funded deceptive commercials (see here and here) meant to dupe conservatives into supporting amnesty for millions of Third World immigrants, and thereby inviting millions more to follow.
Turning the word “racist” into the modern equivalent of “witch” certainly has proved useful for the cultural Marxist enemy within. All resistance to Merkel’s displacement of Germans by a hostile alien population is racist and therefore automatically discredited. Only a racist would disagree that it must be suppressed.

Europe’s horrifying suicide is an unconscionable crime against both past and future generations. Stefan Molyneux explains what is being irrevocably destroyed in the name of political correctness:
Most of what he says about Europe applies to the USA. At least Americans are displacing themselves mainly with Mexicans. Who wouldn’t rather live in Mexico than under Islam? But in both cases, the displaced culture will be lost forever if we don’t stop large-scale Third World immigration and do it quickly.

As an apparatchik in the statist establishment, Time’s Mark Halperin wants Big Government to do something to stop maniacs from shooting people. What exactly? Don’t ask Halperin; he has no clue:
Apparently the objective of journalists like Halperin and demagogues like Obama is to hype the herd into saying, “We don’t care, just do something, anything.” Then the supposed crisis can be fully exploited.

Unions push economically insane minimum wage laws, if only to impose leftist ideology, but don’t want their own members thrown out of work by mandatory inflated wages:
The labor union that led the charge for a $15 minimum wage hike in cities across California is now moving to secure an exemption for employers under union contracts.
The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor buried the exemption on the eighth page of its 12-page proposal for the Santa Monica City Council to review Tuesday while deciding whether to follow Los Angeles and increase the minimum wage.
The loophole would allow employers with collective bargaining agreements to sidestep the wage hike and pay their union members below the proposed $15-per-hour minimum wage.
As usual, scraping away the self-righteous veneer of moonbat ideology reveals corrupted self-interest lurking beneath:
James Sherk, a research fellow in labor economics at The Heritage Foundation, said the exemption is a union attempt to encourage businesses to unionize by making themselves the only low-wage option as union membership continues to drop off.
“This proposal would force any worker in Santa Monica whose labor is worth less than $15 an hour to purchase union representation in order to hold a job,” Sherk said. “Unions should not be able to selectively exempt themselves from the harmful consequences of the minimum wage hikes they lobby for.”
If only the government could find a way to tax left-wing hypocrisy. The proceeds could be used to pay everyone a living wage. Minimum wage would be moot because no one would have to work anymore. WaPo would love it.

For thousands of years homosexuality was acknowledged as a form of disease. For example, it was listed as a mental illness in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual until political pressure from the Left resulted in it being removed in 1973. In the absence of effective resistance, this political pressure has only increased, to the point that now it is the healthy who are considered diseased:
A new study purports to show that those who hold traditional views about marriage are psychotic. …
The study by Giancomo Ciocca et. al., “Psychoticism, Immature Defense Mechanisms and a Fearful Attachment Style are Associated with a Higher Homophobic Attitude,” was published in the September 2015 issue of The Journal of Sexual Medicine.
It claims to find that “homophobia” is associated with psychosis and other forms of mental illness.
The study, however, operationalizes both the dependent and independent variables (what is being explained and what explains), homophobia and psychosis, such that anyone who holds a Christian worldview will be labeled both psychotic and homophobic. So, unsurprisingly, the authors found a correlation. …
Anyone with traditional views of sex and marriage is labeled a homophobe while on the explanatory side of the study a Christian worldview is labeled psychotic.
Silly, politicized crap will increasingly pass for scientific research, the more dependent researchers become on Big Government for funding.
In an interview with MedicalResearch.com, Emmanuele A. Jannini, chair of Endocrinology and Medical Sexology at the University of Rome, said “we have the final proof” that homophobia is a “disease.”
After one obviously flawed study, the debate is over, as Al Gore might bellow.
Scientific integrity is becoming collateral damage in the war on Christianity and traditional values. Or maybe it would be more accurate to say that all three are collateral damage in the war on liberty.
For conservative Christians, who are already concerned about their religious freedom, this study justifiably raises alarm bells. The movement for gay marriage previously promoted its cause with the claim that “gay marriage will not affect you.” Over the past two years, however, the message from those activists has been, “gay marriage opponents must go into the closet or risk getting fired or put out of business,” or in Davis’ case, “thrown in jail.”
Using quack science, such as the Ciocca et al. study, to justify further restrictions on the freedom of gay marriage dissenters could be next.
They threw Kim Davis in prison for not submitting to the homosexual agenda. In the future, the ideologically recalcitrant may be incarcerated in mental institutions, as in the Soviet Union.

Don’t ever ask Michelle Antoinette Obama to speak on any topic unless you want to hear the most privileged woman in the country stridently denounce society for being racist against her kind:
First lady Michelle Obama used a speech Monday that was supposed to be celebrating the opening of a new museum to instead dig deeper the racial divide that’s been growing ever wider during her husband’s presidency.
Screeched the Worst Lady at the New Whitney Museum:
“You see, there are so many kids in this country who look at places like museums and concert halls and other cultural centers and they think to themselves, well, that’s not a place for me, for someone who looks like me, for someone who comes from my neighborhood. In fact, I guarantee you that right now, there are kids living less than a mile from here who would never in a million years dream that they would be welcome in this museum.
“And growing up on the South Side of Chicago, I was one of those kids myself. So I know that feeling of not belonging in a place like this. And today, as first lady, I know how that feeling limits the horizons of far too many of our young people.”
That must be because the sort of people who run big city museums are such right-wingers.
Absolutely everything is about phony racial grievance with this regime.

Already moonbattery-addled modern medicine has taken the next step after indulging the pathological delusions of men who want to deform themselves into crude parodies of women. Introducing Jewel Shuping:
Jewel has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled.
Her need to lose her sight was so strong that in 2006 she decided to blind herself – by having a sympathetic psychologist pour DRAIN CLEANER into her eyes.
So much for “First, do no harm.” That went out with Roe v. Wade.
The psychologist put in numbing eyedrops – acquired by Jewel during a special visit to Canada – and then a couple of drops of drain cleaner in each eye.
Jewel said: “It hurt, let me tell you. My eyes were screaming and I had some drain cleaner going down my cheek burning my skin.
“But all I could think was ‘I am going blind, it is going to be okay.”
Unlike Bruce Jenner, who will never really be a woman, Jewel really is blind now.
Her left eye suffered a ‘corneal meltdown’ – collapsing in on itself and requiring the eye to be removed – while her right eye had glaucoma and cataracts, as well as a webbing of scars.
She is delighted with the outcome.
“I really feel this is the way I was supposed to be born, that I should have been blind from birth.
“When there’s nobody around you who feels the same way, you start to think that you’re crazy. But I don’t think I’m crazy, I just have a disorder. …
“This is not a choice, it’s a need based on a disorder of the brain.”
Although she rejects the concept of free will, at least Jewel admits that she has a disorder, unlike the LGBT crowd. But she demonstrates just as vividly that nothing good will come of indulging the mentally ill in their delusion and disease.

Obama didn’t even wait for the bodies to cool before predictably exploiting the Oregon shootings to attack our precious liberty, as if the lack of unconstitutional gun restrictions caused the attack in a gun-free zone in a state that recently tightened its gun laws. Needless to say, the body count would have been lower had anyone been in a position to fight back.
Too bad Obama didn’t address the growing hatred focused on Christians that he has helped whip up, and the media’s habit of hyping mass shootings so that the killers become instant celebrities. Both are more to blame than the Second Amendment:
A gunman singled out Christians, telling them they would see God in “one second,” during a rampage at an Oregon college Thursday that left at least nine innocent people dead and several more wounded, survivors and authorities said.
“[He started] asking people one by one what their religion was. ‘Are you a Christian?’ he would ask them, and if you’re a Christian, stand up. And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you are going to see God in just about one second.’ And then he shot and killed them,” Stacy Boylen, whose daughter was wounded at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Ore., told CNN.
It isn’t only in territory controlled by the Islamic State that being Christian can get you killed in these dark days.
Not that killing Christian’s was the maniac’s only motive:
[Killer Chris Harper-Mercer] wrote a blog post that mentioned Vester Lee Flanagan, who murdered a Virginia newswoman and cameraman live on air, according to CBS News. “Seems like the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight,” he wrote.
You know a culture is in trouble when Vester Lee Flanagan serves as a role model. But the media hype gives these total losers an instant infamy they can only achieve by killing the innocent.
As for the predictable screeching from liberals about gun control, even if a totalitarian government were somehow able to disarm even people who have no reason to obey the law, these losers would just claim their 15 minutes by driving through playgrounds or onto crowded sidewalks.

If there is one thing all correctly thinking people can agree on, it’s that the lives of Africans are worth more than other people’s lives. To think otherwise would be racist. Yet I doubt liberal authorities will be moved by this:
The study shows that the West African Sahel – part of the semiarid strip just south of the Sahara desert, which spans the African continent from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea – has been steadily “regreening” since the severe droughts of the 1970s and 1980s which killed more than 100,000 people.
Among the reasons for the “regreening” are increased rainfall, the beneficial effects of increased atmospheric CO2 on plant growth and the ingenuity of farmers (“community-led conservation efforts) in this harsh, marginal region.
The climate will always change, just like it always has. Let’s hope it changes for the warmer, which is generally more beneficial for life.

It’s bad enough when individual moonbats working in restaurants refuse to serve men and woman in uniform for ideological reasons. Worst still is when they are backed up by hoplophobic company policy:
An armed National Guard soldier in uniform has been refused service at a Kentucky Waffle House.
Billy Welch was in full military gear, with his holstered gun at his side, when he visited the Nicholsville restaurant in the early hours of Sunday morning.
But when he went to order his food, he claims he was taken aside by a waitress who told him Waffle House did not allow sidearms. If he wanted to get served, he would have to leave his gun outside. …
Faced with eating or breaching military code, Welch said he had no alternative but to leave and go hungry.
Waffle House stands by its lunatic policy in the belief that if only criminals bring guns onto the premises, the patrons will be safer.

Burning a flag is constitutionally protected freedom of speech when you burn one progressives detest, like Old Glory. But burning the rainbow flag representing sexual depravity is a different matter:
An Omaha man accused of burning his neighbors’ gay pride flag last month will stand trial for arson aggravated by a hate crime. …
The lesbian couple at the home told police they saw a man later identified as Cameron Mayfield, 23, dressed in dark clothing, steal their gay pride flag and return with it on fire.
According to court testimony, officers found the remains of the flag in the basement of Mayfield’s home.
Further investigation revealed Mayfield’s father told police his son had been drinking the night before the incident.
Stealing your neighbors’ property is criminal all right. But that petty crime is not the issue here, unfortunately for Mayfield.
“It was a prank,” Mayfield said. “I’m sorry for the confusion. I don’t hate anybody or anything.”
Allegedly hating his politically privileged neighbors is the main crime at issue. This will be punished much more severely than petty property theft.
Officers said in testimony that upon his arrest, Mayfield said he didn’t understand how burning a flag could be a felony.
Years down the road, when they let him out of prison, Mayfield will be well advised to limit his flag burning to unprotected flags.

Looks like the Regime is committed to helping install Joke Biden in the White House. Watch as Obama’s supervisor Valerie Jarrett cuts Shrillary loose regarding the email scandal:
Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett threw Hillary Clinton under the bus Wednesday at the Washington Ideas Forum, where she told interviewer Andrea Mitchell that the White House gave Clinton guidance forbidding her from using private email.
“Yes, there were. Yeah, absolutely,” Jarrett said when asked if the White House sent guidance to Cabinet secretaries about not using private email. “Obviously we want to make sure that we preserve all government records, and so there was guidance given that government business should be done on government emails and that if you did use a private email that it should be turned over.”
Orders may even come down for the FBI to stop protecting her. That would mean federal prison, eliminating the closest thing Biden has to serious competition.
