#myNYPD: Total Fail

What Michael Bloomberg once boasted of as his own army, the seventh largest in the world, is now under the control of a communist. Its public image has declined precipitously since the nation stood in awe of the heroism it displayed on 9/11. So it took to Twitter to improve perceptions:

The response was pictures like these:

myNYPD
myNYPD
myNYPD
myNYPD
myNYPD

Many of the pictures show Occupy Wall Street lowlifes getting what they insistently asked for. But Marxist hippies are hardly the only ones to fall afoul of the NYPD:

One Twitter user put up the Post’s front page showing Kang Wong, the 84-year-old man bloodied by cops during a January jaywalking arrest.

Here Wong hobnobs with Officer Friendly:

kang-wong-new-york-post-jaywalking-cover

A lesson learned? Apparently not, according to NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis, who stoically barked,

“We will not be deterred from our social media objective.”

Now that protecting the city from more Muslim terror attacks is no longer a priority, the police must have a lot of time on their hands.

Place Your Eurovision Bets on Conchita Wurst

The progressive objective of total cultural disintegration is at hand, as may be witnessed at Eurovision:

Europe’s biggest song contest returns on Saturday 10 May as a diverse range of contenders (all unique, trust us) take to the stage in Copenhagen to do vocal battle for their country.

The competition is taking place in Denmark because that’s who won last year. Among this year’s contestants…

…there’s Conchita Wurst for Austria whose motto is “be the best version of yourself rather than a bad copy of someone else”. He/she sounds great.

Unfortunately he/she doesn’t look so great:

Conchita Wurst

Place your bets on Conchita Worst. The judges will vote for him/her/it to make a statement.

Austria won’t be giving us any more Mozarts until after moonbattery has passed away like a severe case of diarrhea — assuming Western Civilization survives it.

Chicago Public Schools to Adopt Afrocentric Curriculum

In Illinois, there is a state law requiring public schools to offer at least one unit on grievance-stoking “African-American history.” But that’s not good enough for the Chicago Public Schools, which are planning to devote the entire curriculum to the absurd ideology of Afrocentricity.

The curriculum covers kindergarten through tenth grade and is designed to align with Common Core. It includes a web link to TheAfrican.com, a website whose publisher decries “fake-Jews” and calls the United States a “Zionist-occupied enemy territory.”

The curriculum will apply Afrocentric ideology to

all core disciplines, which include literacy, mathematics, science, social science, the arts, physical education and health.

For an idea of how effectively such an education is likely to prepare students, refer to the sub-Saharan African nation of your choice.

Prominent in the curriculum is the preposterous book Black Athena by Martin Bernal, who invites fools to prove their political correctness by pretending to believe that the Greeks took their culture from Egypt, and that Egyptians were not Egyptian but black.

Ron Fritze, a historian, the dean of Athens State University, and author of the book “Invented Knowledge,” says that Bernal’s theories are not historically accurate and have no place in Chicago schools.

Bernal’s pathetic fantasies aren’t the only outlandish lies children will be taught.

Chicago fifth graders will be exposed to another controversial and widely-criticized theory in Ivan van Sertima’s “They Came Before Columbus.” Van Sertima, who taught at Rutgers University, theorized that Africans populated the Americas well before Columbus.

Even the liberal New York Times dismissed van Sertima’s moonbat daydreams as “ignorant rubbish.”

The curriculum will consist largely of ultra-left political indoctrination:

The eighth grade literacy section unit, titled “Being an Advocate to Social Justice,” directs students to the website for the American Civil Liberties Union. It also includes a poem titled “Racism is Around Me Everywhere,” cartoons from the website LeftyCartoons.com, and it encourages discussion of Attorney General Eric Holder’s infamous “nation of cowards” quote.

The ninth grade literacy section encompasses a study of the Pan African Movement. … Tenth graders are introduced to “critical race theory,” which holds that institutional racism and white privilege are pervasive throughout society.

A more pernicious course of brainwashing would be difficult to imagine. Fortunately the graduates of Chicago schools will be able to rely on Affirmative Action to obtain employment; they will need it when coming in competition with those who received educations based on factual knowledge rather than infantile moonbattery.

Assuming the goal is to prevent assimilation, the curriculum is bound to succeed.

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley Sets Loose Illegals

When a society is governed by people who do not mean it well, the center cannot be expected to hold. Decline is inevitable as it all flies apart. From Dennis Michael Lynch’s DMLDaily:

While Homeland Security is reconsidering their position on deporting illegal criminals with ‘trivial’ crimes, Maryland’s Governor O’Malley has taken it one step further. He announced that the Baltimore City Detention Center will no longer comply with a federal policy that requires the jail to detain illegal immigrants for deportation. O’Malley said the Detention Center will now consider the severity of the charges a person is facing when reviewing I.C.E. requests to hold immigrants through the ‘Secure Communities’ program. The federal program ‘Secure Communities’ was intended to catch and deport dangerous criminals by coordinating with local jails.

O’Malley was appointed to the Council of Governors by Obama, who is highly unlikely to object to his thumbing his nose at the federal government on a matter of vital importance to our survival as a nation in the face of an ongoing invasion that threatens permanent demographic conquest.

Meanwhile, 200 heavily armed federal agents descended on a ranch over a dispute involving grazing fees.

Rule of law is disintegrating, but this isn’t anarchy. The term for it is anarcho-tyranny.

Happy Earth Day, Moonbats!

Just because the lefties at Google were too spiteful to acknowledge Easter is no reason not to be gracious enough to wish liberals a joyous Vladimir Lenin’s Birthday — or as adherents to Lenin’s authoritarian collectivist ideology now prefer to call it, Earth Day. Via Soopermexican and Weasel Zippers, this graphic provides some background that should add depth to the celebrations (click for full size):

Earthday

It’s nice to know that even after Democrats acquire the political leverage to ban traditional holidays for being Christian, ethnocentric, jingoistic, or whatever, we will still have something to celebrate.

Bill Gates’s Intrusive InBloom Scheme Pulled Up by the Roots

Zillionaire moonbat philanthropist Bill Gates has been foiled in his latest attempt to purchase utopia on our behalf:

Common Core-loving billionaire Bill Gates has suffered a stinging defeat in his ambitious quest to reform every cranny of the American K-12 public education system.

The nonprofit educational-software company InBloom Inc., which the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Carnegie Corp. of New York financed to the tune of $100 million, announced on Monday that it will shut down permanently.

Anybody who can waste money like that ought to be working for the federal government. Let’s see, where might Gates fit in?

The reason for the shutdown is a steady cascade of parental and legislative anxiety about student privacy, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The strategy driving inBloom had been to create a huge database connecting local school districts and state education bureaucracies with behemoth education companies.

To accomplish this goal, the nonprofit had hoped to provide a smorgasbord of data about students. What homework are they doing? What tests are they assigned? What are their test scores? Their specific learning disabilities? Their disciplinary records? Their skin colors? Their names? Their addresses?

I’ve got it. Let’s put Bill Gates in charge of the NSA. A $1 million donation to Obama’s ominously continuing reelection campaign ought to secure the position, considering how little it takes for the risibly unqualified to buy ambassadorships from the current regime.

NBC Does “Psychological Research” on David Gregory

At long last dancing fool David Gregory is getting help:

NBC’s “Meet the Press” has fallen to such ratings lows that network brass ordered psychological research of the host David Gregory and his family, in a bid to make him more likable.

Friends of Gregory and even his wife were interviewed by a psychologist commissioned by NBC to find out how the host of the flagship Sunday morning show might relate to audiences better.

If they really want the insufferable moonbat to relate to audiences better, they might try Thorazine in order to cure him of his delusionary liberal ideology. After all, even if they control the media, government, and education establishments, actual true-believing liberals like Gregory comprise only a minority of the public.

A Troubled Boy Named Jane Doe

If a boy wants to pretend he is a girl, his psychiatric state is not exactly optimal. Encouraging such morbid delusions will further destabilize him, aggravating other troublesome aspects of his disordered personality. A 16-year-old boy referred to by the ideologically depraved social engineering authorities (including the media) with feminine pronouns and the name “Jane Doe” is a case in point.

Young Mr. Doe’s lawyer doesn’t like it that his client has been locked up in an adult prison — even though it is a women’s prison. He would have a point, if his concern were that it is unfair to the inmates who really are women. According to the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF), which transferred “Jane” to the Department of Correction,

“The youth has an extensive history of violence, including targeting female staff at several programs as well as other girls in the programs,” DCF said.

According to DCF, this included: stabbing a female peer with a fork; four assaults or threats on female staffers as well as an assault on a female peer resident at the Bridgeport Detention Center; and 10 assaults and several attempted assaults on staffers at the Solnit Psychiatric Center.

The most recent violent episode, DCF stated, came at a Massachusetts residential program where the youth assaulted a female staffer, “breaking her jaw and temporarily blinding her in one eye.”

DCF described [him] as “uniquely dangerous, in that no other youth at the Connecticut Juvenile Training School has exhibited such a long-established pattern of assaults.”

But nobody seems to care about the women this young maniac has been afforded the opportunity to attack. The concerns of normal people are insignificant when a sacred transsexual stands at center stage. The worry is that he is being oppressed by being kept in prison despite his tender age. His lawyer wants him in a treatment center instead, so that he can be mollycoddled and wet-nursed between his violent assaults on relatively defenseless females until he gets around to escaping. His violent behavior is dismissed as a natural response to his terrible upbringing.

Meanwhile, the DCF has been providing him with hormone treatments (at taxpayer expense) so as to exacerbate his delusion that he is a girl by causing him to grow breasts. Readers can judge how successfully the chemically induced deformation of his body has reformed Master Doe into a normal, productive member of society.

As The Other McCain observes, “It takes a village to raise a dangerous psychopath.”

Public Schools Have Already Been Islamicized in Birmingham, England

Thanks to political correctness, Britons don’t need to wait until Muslims attain a majority to experience second-class status under dhimmitude. They can just enroll their children in public schools:

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE [General Certificate of Secondary Education] syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. …

The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham and will lead to calls for intervention. The report focuses on Park View School and its sister schools, Golden Hillock and Nansen, the only primary of the three. Inspectors found that Park View practised forced and discriminatory sex segregation and has “restricted” GCSE subjects “to comply with conservative Islamic teaching”.

Core elements of the GCSE syllabus were missed out as “un-Islamic” and an extremist preacher with known al-Qaeda sympathies and anti-Semitic views was invited to speak with children. At Golden Hillock, there was discrimination against non-Muslims, the report found. Its handful of Christian students “have to teach themselves” in one GCSE subject after the teacher “concentrated on the students who were doing the Islamic course”.

There is nothing spontaneous about this transformation of schools into madrassas. It is part of deliberate plan to displace Britons from their homeland by preventing assimilation.

Allegations that radical Muslims were seeking to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham first emerged publicly last month in a leaked letter, describing an operation purportedly named “Trojan Horse”.

Those who dare to raise their voices in opposition to this agenda are usually silenced by accusations of “Islamophobia.”

Once Islam was spread by the sword. Now it is spread by terrorism and something still more destructive: political correctness.

Imagine the outcry from liberals if anyone but their Islamic allies were behind this:

Though all the schools are supposed to be secular, the inspectors said they were not sufficiently welcoming to those of other faiths or no faith, with students at Park View encouraged to “begin and end each lesson with a prayer” and loudspeakers used to “broadcast the call for prayer across the school”.

The report added that the respected non-Muslim headteacher was marginalised, and female staff at one of the schools were treated in a “rude and dismissive” way.

Yet again we see that liberal principles are not so important as assisting in the spread of Islam, which is diametrically opposed to everything liberals purport to believe in. Otherwise the progressives running the schools never would have let the situation get this far out of control.

At Nansen, there were “no lessons in the humanities, arts or music” for one entire year, Year 6, and only “limited” teaching in Year 5. Arabic, however, was compulsory for all students — almost unheard of at a primary school.

Maybe that isn’t such a bad idea. In time, Arabic could be the official language of the British Isles, the better to read the founding document of the prevailing culture: the Koran.

Meanwhile, the British government continues to import Muslim colonists in vast hordes, and to pay them to reproduce as rapidly as possible while avoiding employment.

The Muslim–moonbat alliance will literally erase British Civilization if it is not stopped.

Distinguishing Parody From Reality Regarding Bloomberg’s Latest Jihad Against Gun Rights

Liberal authoritarianism has reached the point where it is no longer possible to distinguish between satire and reality. Take this graphic, ostensibly from a $50 million Michael Bloomberg campaign to deprive us of our natural right of self-defense:

everytown

Are anti-gun weenies really so clueless as to think the entire cartridge comes out the end of the barrel? Nah, it must be a parody:

Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown” roll-out has been a colossal failure, from the egotistical Bloomberg’s arrogant (and theologically-challenged) claim that he’s “earned” his way into Heaven for attempting to oppose the basic human right to self defense, to his social media director’s failure to secure the applicable Facebook pages, leading to dozens of obvious — and sometimes delightfully subtle — parody clones.

One of these mocking Facebook pages so successfully parodied the general ignorance of all things gun-related that they convinced a number of gun sites — Bearing Arms included — that the parody image above was real.

Then again, maybe the image is on the level:

Update: There is now speculation from some that the Everytown page that posted the image in question may be real, considering the content of the other posts on the page.

Anyone who thinks that liberals throwing tens of $millions around to suppress our right to own guns would have even a schoolboy’s understanding of how guns work hasn’t seen single-issue anti–Second Amendment congresscretin Carolyn McCarthy discussing the need to ban firearms that feature a “shoulder thing that goes up” or California State Senator Kevin de Leon raving about 30-magazine clips.

One thing I’m fairly sure of — this isn’t a legitimate Everytown graphic:

Bureau of Land Management Created “Bovine Concentration Camps” on Bundy Ranch

Our federal overlords give higher priority to animals than people, as can be seen by their crippling of California farms on behalf of a useless minnow called the delta smelt. But power grabs have higher priority still. This is sensible, considering that the entire point of the government sacrificing our interests to those of the animals is to facilitate power grabs. When animals get in the way of the leviathan’s growth, it goes poorly for them:

It is now emerging that the Bureau of Land Management committed horrific atrocities against cattle during its armed occupation and siege of the Bundy Ranch near Bunkerville, Nevada. Photos are now emerging of the mass graves where BLM hastily tried to bury the cattle they killed. BLM agents used government helicopters to run down cattle in 90+ degree heat while shooting the cows that couldn’t keep up. The cattle that survived were then corralled into abusive “bovine concentration camps” that resulted in many cattle dying from dehydration and stress.

In an attempt to cover it up, BLM used machinery equipment to construct mass graves, but the arrival of armed citizens who faced off against the federal agents caused BLM to have to evacuate the area, leaving their cattle atrocities easily spotted by the public.

Those familiar with the history of our current governing philosophy, oligarchical collectivism, will be relieved that it is only cattle getting this treatment (for now), rather than people, as has frequently happened under other statist attempts to impose utopia.

But to animal rights moonbats, there is no difference between people and animals. Consequently, even PETA may have had as much Hope & Change as it can swallow.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is criticizing the Bureau of Land Management for apparently euthanizing [i.e., slaughtering] an unknown number of cattle at the Bundy Ranch.

“These animals shouldn’t be killed either by the government, or by the rancher who plans to send the cows off to slaughter. The best thing anyone can do to stop the suffering of animals is to go vegan,” PETA’s Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said in a written statement to Breitbart News.

After we have stopped eating meat and wearing leather, cattle will be free to frolic carefree in the wilderness along with the chickens – so long as Obama doesn’t get on them for flatulence.

On a more serious note,

“This is unjust,” the Bundy Ranch said in a statement on their Facebook page Saturday. “Understand that this is beyond the cattle and it is overall about freedom but this is one of many incidents where the corrupt and unjust government is taking away our freedom little by little.” …

Nevada Republican Assemblywoman Michele Fiore told Breitbart News on Friday that the treatment of the cattle by the BLM is “cruel” and she has heard from ranchers across the state with similar experiences with the BLM and its livestock seizure practices.

The deaths to the herd could have a serious financial impact on the ranch. Cliven Bundy told FOX News last week that one cow could go for as much as $2200 at market.

It is only a matter of time until the Feds drive the ranch into bankruptcy. Cliven Bundy will be a lesson to the rest of us. To cowards, the lesson will be that you had better not stand up to the government. To patriots, the lesson will be that in the end any government will do whatever the people let it get away with.
