Illegal Alien Impregnates Underage Stepdaughter so as Not to Be Deported

One problem with rewarding bad behavior is you tend to get more of it. You almost can’t blame Horacio Alvarado for thinking he would be rewarded for impregnating his underage stepdaughter:

As an undocumented immigrant, Horacio Alvarado thought if he could show he was the father of a newborn American citizen, he would be allowed to remain in the United States himself.

But the paternity test ultimately resulted in more severe charges for Alvarado because the mother of the child was only 15 and was his stepdaughter, according to a criminal complaint.

Unfortunately for Alvarado, sometimes bad behavior is punished. The charges are first-degree sexual assault, resulting in pregnancy, repeated sexual assault of a child, and incest.

Alvarado apparently believed in the so-called anchor baby myth, that having a child born in the U.S. might protect illegal immigrants from deportation. It does not, even when the birth is not itself the result of a felony sexual assault.

However, anchor babies are regarded as American citizens and can be a big help when it comes to obtaining welfare benefits and eventual citizenship. At least the anchor baby gambit worked for Alvarado to the extent that he will presumably get to remain in America until he has served his sentence.

Muslim College Basketball Player Kicked Off Team for Disrespecting National Anthem

It is reassuring to know that community colleges in western Kansas hold their athletes to higher behavioral standards than does the disgraceful NFL. A Muslim player who refused to show respect for the national anthem for religious reasons has been kicked off the team:

That has ignited concerns over whether Garden City Community College violated the civil rights of 19-year-old Rasool Samir, who continued shooting balls during the anthem Nov. 1, leading to a confrontation with a fan who accused him of disrespecting the flag.

Don’t worry, moonbats. The ACLU is on the case, absurdly screeching that making the punk stop shooting baskets while the Star-Spangled Banner is playing “is antithetical to our American values.”

Christian Colonel Ratted Out as Thought Criminal

You might expect that even a highly decorated officer could be driven out of the military for holding conventional Christian views in an Islamic or communist country — but not in America:

Col. Leland Bohannon, an experienced combat pilot, was suspended from command and orders were handed down recommending he not be promoted after he refused to publicly affirm the same-sex spouse of a retiring subordinate.

From the Christian point of view, same sex “marriage” is not only sinful but blasphemous. Progressives probably see it the same way, explaining why they have been pushing it so relentlessly.

Bohannon was about to be promoted to General, but that seems unlikely now that a subordinate of politically preferred sexual orientation ratted him out. The military has devoted itself to tolerance, diversity, & inclusion; therefore, there is no place in it for normal Americans with traditional morals.

Bohannon’s thought crime:

Last May, the colonel declined to sign a certificate of spouse appreciation for a retiring master sergeant’s same-sex spouse. Instead, he asked a higher ranking military leader to sign the customary document.

Not a bad solution to a sticky situation. It would leave everyone happy — if not for the malicious bullying that characterizes all things LGBT. The retiring sergeant seized upon this opportunity to sabotage Bohannon’s career as punishment for not explicitly sacrificing his values and religious convictions on the altar of depravity.

Finally, a little pushback: a group of Senators — including Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio — are intervening on Bohannon’s behalf.

Religious Service for Moonbats

Racial self-hatred among progressives has become a religion — complete with worship services. This one took place in Moscow on the Colorado, a.k.a. Austin:

The white professor who quit her full-time position to tour the country, leading seminars on “white fragility,” asked for whites in the room to come forward.

About 15 people walked to the stage and each one read a quote from the projection screen that addressed their “internalized superiority,” “racial privilege” and other deficiencies as whites.

When they finished reading, the professor told the audience to “not clap” for the white people as they returned to their seats.

Then Robin DiAngelo announced that there would be no Q&A, and abruptly concluded the 3-hour service devoted to “interrupting whiteness” so that it might be abolished.

Liberalism is one sick cult.

Seven of 10 Richest Congresscritters Are Democrats

The quasi-Marxist demagoguery relentlessly barfed by Democrats is irritating enough without considering this:

Seven of the ten richest members of Congress are Democrats while only three are Republicans, according to a recently published analysis done by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Prominent among the diamond-studded Dems is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, with an estimated net wealth north of $100 million. She wants to redistribute the money you work for on behalf of the poor.

Watered-down Marxism has become the official ideology of the elitist ruling class, which exploits it as a pretext to confiscate the wealth we create. They spend much of the loot on votes to keep themselves in power.

It should go without saying that subsidizing poverty does not make there be less of it. But why would zillionaire leftists want to reduce poverty? Then fewer people would sell them votes in exchange for our money.

Swedish Government Suppresses Stats on Muslim Rape Epidemic

Q: When is a Muslim not a Muslim? A: When he rapes Swedish women; then he is just a man:

Sweden’s justice minister [Morgan Johansson] has rejected a proposal by the Moderate party to record the ethnic backgrounds of sex attackers saying the only thing that matters is that they are men.

Contrary to liberal ideology, not all men are the same. For example, Swedish men hardly ever rape women. Muslim men, especially when engaged in the conquest of infidel lands like the “refugees” who have invaded Sweden, are well known to rape women frequently. Treasonous immigration policy is directly responsible for making Sweden the Rape Capital of the West.

To correct a problem, you have to understand it; to understand it, you have to face the data even when it does not support your ideology. But for progressives, women being raped is not a problem worth correcting. Islamophobia — i.e., resistance to the Islamization of Europe — now that is a problem.

Welfare Buys Lobster for Dog

What will it take for people to become enraged by the form of slavery known as the welfare state? Maybe this video of a woman feeding her dog with lobster purchased with her EBT card will do the trick (LANGUAGE ALERT):

The EBT card is a gift of Social Security Disability Insurance. Her disability? She is depressed. You probably are too, if you watched the video.

The original video was yanked from YouTube, presumably for undermining the liberal narrative. Don’t be surprised if this version disappears too.

Free Speech Denounced as “Violence,” Suppressed at Kennesaw State

Militant snowflakes at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia did their part to combat what they called “violence” by shredding other people’s signs at a free speech event:

The signs contained messages such as, “Abortion is murder #DefundPlannedParenthood,” “There are only two genders,” and “The gender wage gap, Harry Potter, Both Fantasy.”

Javid Ona, president of the College Libertarians at KSU, told Campus Reform that the signs were posted by individuals as part of a free speech event and did not necessarily represent the views of all the groups involved, noting that there were “groups from across the political spectrum.”

Sorry; political spectra are not allowed. Diversity is fine if it means not being white or sexually normal, but there will be no ideological diversity if progressives have their way.

Nor will there be property rights:

When the owner of one of the signs asked them if they had the right to destroy someone else’s property, another protester interjected, “Is it your property?”

“Yes,” the owner replied.

“Does it have your name on it?” she asked with a grin.

Finally, a police officer arrived and shut down the thugs. But in utopia, police officers will do the bidding of the thugs. That’s the point of voting for Democrats.

Swedish Report: Milk Is Racist

If it is wholesome and nourishes, it must be racist — like milk:

In a new report on “the white hatred” in Sweden, by the Total Defense Research Institute (Foi) commissioned by the government to map comments written on sites on the internet, milk is listed as a hate symbol and a symbol of “white power,” along with the okay-symbol much used by Donald Trump.

The insane reports excreted by useless moonbats, usually at taxpayer expense, would be hilarious if they were not potentially highly harmful:

The stated purpose of the report is to “provide an insight into some digital environments whose common denominator is that they are all xenophobic”.

The alleged ultimate purpose is “to change the constitution, which the Swedish government wants to do to prohibit certain websites that reveal the ethnicity of convicted criminals, and to silence free speech.”

Looks like websites that acknowledge the existence of milk may be targets of censorship in the name of imposing multiculturalism.

The Swedish government will have to clamp down very hard for a very long time if it is to suppress any honest discussion of the crisis it has imported in the form of vast hordes of Islamic welfare colonists.

Coming Soon: Affirmative Action for the Overweight

Furnishing classrooms with giant desks is not enough. We also need to add body size to the college diversity curriculum:

Andrea Hunt, who teaches sociology at the University of North Alabama, surveyed 13 fat college administrators about their experiences on campus and found that many of them experience “fat shaming” and “microaggressions.” …

These microaggressions, Hunt contends, hurt fat women’s careers and finances, arguing that “upward mobility is halted” because other people may “be uncomfortable with them taking more responsibility.”

Sounds like they qualify for coveted victim status. Why lose weight when you can gain Affirmative Action privileges instead?

Al Franken Joins the Sexual Abuser Bandwagon

Prominent Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and the predictable John McCain have made ears ring with their shrill proclamations that Roy Moore is unfit to be a Senator. They might be right. But what about current Senator and former professional clown Al Franken?

Franken (D., Minn.) has apologized after being accused of sexually assaulting a woman and later groping her while she was asleep in 2006, although he said he did not remember all of the events “in the same way.”

KABC anchor Leeann Tweeden posted her story on the radio station’s website on Thursday, writing that Franken aggressively kissed her without consent during a rehearsal for a skit for troops during a USO tour in the Middle East, which Franken headlined.

Unsurprisingly, the experience left her feeling “disgusted and violated.”

She also included a photograph of a smiling Franken grabbing her breasts while she slept on the flight home from the tour.

The photographic evidence is far more damning than the possibly forged autograph in Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook. Yet I doubt this story will raise the ire of McConnell, Ryan, McCain, et al., because Franken is a far-left Democrat.

School Desks Denounced for Discriminating

The reason we need totalitarian liberalism whereby politically correct social engineers can control every conceivable aspect of existence is that discrimination is everywhere. Even desks discriminate:

The executive director of a research institute at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte (UNCC) recently argued that small desks cause a “hostile physical environment” to fat students.

Heather Brown, who heads the Women and Girls Research Alliance at UNCC, published an article in the new issue of the Fat Studies journal titled “There’s always stomach on the table and I gotta write! Physical space and learning in fat college women.”

Yes, there really is an academic journal entitled Fat Studies. Moonbattery has had the same effect on scholarship that it has had on everything else.

Cultural Marxism requires its proponents to constantly seek out and agitate new outlier groups to play off against the core population. People who are overweight can now join blacks, Muslims, sexual deviants, et cetera.

Kari, one student that Brown interviewed, lamented that she felt “self-conscious” in classes because of the size of the desks, saying, “I can’t help thinking about it, and then it would turn into, like, ‘Maybe if I lose ten pounds then I wouldn’t look so fat in this desk…’”

Also, if she loses 10 pounds, Kari might live a longer, healthier life. But if progressives cared about people living longer, healthier lives, they wouldn’t promote homosexuality.

Key to liberalism is the absolution of individuals of responsibility for their success or failure:

Kari told Brown that she was too distracted in her classes to focus.

Students who focus in class are beneficiaries of thin privilege. Maybe they ought to be punished so as to level the playing field.

Brown — who, as you might have guessed, looks like she would benefit from some diet and exercise — confirms that “weight stigma is a key barrier in learning,” and demands that classrooms be refurnished with “differently sized chairs and tables.”

But Brown warns that colleges must be careful during renovations, because they could inadvertently make the situation worse, such as by implementing a “fat chair” or just a few seating options for fat students, since this could “further damage” fat students’ self-esteem.

In utopia, all desks will be so oversized that only Michael Moore will find them comfortable. Thus will equity be achieved.

Having Children Is a Sin Against Liberalism (Especially if You Are White)

Liberalism starts from the assumption that we are bad. Americans are bad. White people are bad. Capitalists are bad. The First World is bad. You don’t have to extend the mentality far to reach the logical conclusion that human beings are bad. If the human race is the problem, the solution is simple: don’t have babies. NBC takes the leap:

A startling and honestly distressing view is beginning to receive serious consideration in both academic and popular discussions of climate change ethics. According to this view, having a child is a major contributor to climate change. The logical takeaway here is that everyone on Earth ought to consider having fewer children. …

Several years ago, scientists showed that having a child, especially for the world’s wealthy [i.e., white people], is one of the worst things you can do for the environment.

That means that in the liberal religion, having children is a mortal sin.

[W]e need to stop pretending the decision to have children doesn’t have environmental and ethical consequences.

Ethical, because according to progressive dogma it is morally wrong to reproduce. After all, all human activity results in the carbon dioxide emissions that nourish plants but that according to leftist ideology cause the climate to change, which is supposedly terrible even though the climate has always constantly changed. Therefore, every human is a pernicious blemish on the earth.

Who is guilty of your children’s harmless CO2 emissions, you or them? The answer is both:

If I release a murderer from prison, knowing full well that he intends to kill innocent people, then I bear some responsibility for those deaths — even though the killer is also fully responsible. My having released him doesn’t make him less responsible (he did it!). But his doing it doesn’t eliminate my responsibility either.

From the point of view of the liberal intelligentsia, having children is comparable to releasing murderers from prison. A more profoundly depraved ideology would be impossible to imagine.

Record Revenue, but Unsustainable Debt Continues to Rise

Whatever dominates the headlines, whether sexual assaults or Senate races or trips to Asia or Paul Ryan’s rearrangement of deck chairs aboard the Titanic, the headlong plunge into economic doom continues:

The federal government hauled in record total tax revenues in the month of October, taking in a total of $235,341,000,000 during the first month of fiscal 2018, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement released [Monday].

The federal government also brought in record individual income tax revenues for the month of October, taking in $127,832,000,000 in individual income taxes.

Yet even this was not enough.

Despite its record total tax intake of $235,341,000,000 for the month of October, the federal government still ran a deficit of $63,214,000,000 for the month because it spent $298,555,000,000.

The national debt has rocketed past $20 trillion, with no sign of slowing down.

Trying to tax our way out of it would be insane. There isn’t enough money in existence to slake Big Government’s greed. Trying to solve the problem by cutting taxes is just as crazy.

Reduced taxes aren’t the solution; they would be an inevitable byproduct of the solution — which is to reverse the growth of government until it fits back inside the Constitution.
