Australian Human Rights Commission Demonizes White Males With Ham-Fisted Propaganda

Here we see the Australian Human Rights Commission putting taxpayers’ money to work by convincing the gullible that white men deserve to be despised:

Irony is very trendy among progressives. Yet they don’t see the irony of basing their racist, sexist demonization campaign on cartoonish portrayals of white guys as racist and sexist.

Maxine Waters Proclaims that Housing Is “a Necessary Human Right”

The last time Democrats had firm control of the federal government, we heard a lot about how medical care is a human right. They followed up the rhetoric with the disastrous ObamaCare power grab. What’s next? Maxine Waters offers a clue by proclaiming that housing is “a necessary human right”:

If housing is “a necessary human right,” that means that you have a right to force other people to provide you with housing, if necessary on a slave basis. That’s what Big Government under the control of socialists like Maxine Waters is for.

Conflating rights with needs is an attack on the very essence of rights. You have a right to your own property, which includes your own labor. In a free society, that allows you to meet your needs by trading for healthcare services, housing, et cetera.

In a society that regards housing as a right, you have no property; you are property — the government’s.

Also alarming is her statement that “Housing is the foundation on which our entire society is built.” Sonja Bochow begs to differ:

The FAMILY is the foundation on which our entire society is built, not housing. As the family unit goes, so goes the nation. If it’s healthy, our nation is healthy. If it isn’t, we are in trouble. And if Waters wants to truly help those who need it, she can start promoting marriage instead of irresponsible sex leading to far too many out of wedlock births to single parents, and she can start promoting intact families instead of crazy broken up homes with kids having no dad.

That would entail serious welfare reform. I doubt Mad Maxine is on board.

Waters might be right about housing being the foundation of society, if society were a housing project. Transforming America into a giant housing project appears to be Democrats’ ambition.

Black Guy Spray Paints Swastika at University of Maryland

Another symbol of hate, another presumed hate hoax:

Court records show the man accused of spray-painting a swastika inside a residence hall at the University of Maryland in September is African American. …

University of Maryland police say 52-year-old Ronald Alford Sr. … faces several charges including destruction of property and disturbing the operations of a school. Alford will not be allowed back on campus.

Alford’s connection to the college is unclear. Maybe he was trying out as an assistant professor.

Students were surprised to learn someone who is a member of a race which has been historically oppressed is accused of the hate-related incident.

Then they ought to set aside their Howard Zinn and study the Hate Hoax List.

Kaepernick Syndrome Spreads to Germany

In honor of moonbattery, the German soccer team Hertha Berlin indulged in some politics prior to a home game:

Hertha’s starting lineup linked arms and took a knee on the pitch, while coaching staff, officials and substitutes took a knee off it.

On Twitter, the Bundesliga club says, “Hertha BSC stands for tolerance and responsibility! For a tolerant Berlin and an open-minded world, now and forevermore!”

Actually, Hertha BSC stands for Hertha, Berliner Sport-Club. Bundesliga is a professional soccer league.

The purpose was to display solidarity with NFL players who make a pageant of their contempt for America by refusing to stand when the national anthem is played.

Theatrically siding with radical left Black Lives Matter politics, which German soccer players are unlikely to know much about, supposedly displays the virtue most treasured in a society dominated by moonbats: tolerance. “Tolerance” might be defined as a reflexive embrace of anything that smells like cultural Marxism.

Apple VP of Inclusion and Diversity Suggests White Guys Can Be Diverse Too, Is Quickly Whipped Back Into Line

Is there room for male Caucasians in a diverse utopia? Not much, to judge by the outraged reaction correctly pigmented Apple VP of Inclusion and Diversity Denise Young Smith got for suggesting that white guys can be diverse too:

“Diversity is the human experience,” Smith said. “I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.”

That was well received by the crowd at the One Young World Summit in Bogota, Colombia last week. But then Ms. Smith said this:

“There can be 12 white blue-eyed blonde men in a room and they are going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation,” Smith said.

In the homogeneously progressive tech world, heads exploded.

Media outlets pounced on the statement, while diversity advocates decried Smith’s words as contradictory to the fight for workplace equality. As noted by TechCrunch, which procured a copy of Smith’s letter, the statement appeared to suggest diversity of thought is a suitable stand in for proactive hiring practices adopted by a variety of tech firms, including Apple, to foster racial and gender diversity.

Only white guys who construct a public identity around depraved sexual proclivities can possibly qualify as diverse. The rest are villains to be displaced.

Acknowledging that people are individuals, not interchangeable representatives of identity groups, undermines liberal ideology and is therefore a serious thought crime.

Smith issued the standard groveling apology that we have come to expect of those who step outside the bounds of politically permissible thought.

Common Sense Gun Laws in Action

Progressives want “common sense” gun restrictions that will result in few civilians other than criminals having guns. They bark that America needs to discard the Second Amendment and be more like the rest of the world.

In South Africa, you have to demonstrate a need to possess a gun for self-defense (presumably beyond just living in South Africa). Australia is infamously restrictive of gun rights, serving as an inspiration for Democrats.

The videos below show what happens when criminals can be reasonably certain that their victims are unarmed.

Princeton Op-ed Denies Conservatives Right of Free Speech

The Daily Princetonian offers an alarming glimpse at the mentality of the totalitarians who dominate campuses these days. Princeton junior Ryan Born sounds off on freedom of speech:

When conservatives appeal to “free speech,” it is actually a calculated political move, designed to open up avenues of political discourse while shaming others from moving in active political opposition. I argue that when conservatives resort to this move, they can be safely ignored, as they are appealing to a right that does not exist. …

I am not arguing that conservatives do not expect intellectual opposition to their content; instead, I am arguing against their right to be heard and accepted. …

If conservative arguments were strong, they would be convincing, and if they were convincing, they would not meet political opposition. If conservative arguments were strong, they would stand without desperate appeals to the idea of “free speech.” If the only justification conservatives can offer for their ideas is that they merely exist, then let me say as Trotsky did: “You are miserable bankrupts, your role is played out; go where you ought to go — into the dustbin of history!”

You know we are in trouble when you hear an Ivy League student approvingly quote a communist tyrant like Trotsky while discussing free speech.

Born goes on to proclaim that “no human is under the obligation to listen to what has already been refuted.”

Therefore, speech deemed in advance to already have been refuted should be prevented through protests, boycotts, disinvitations, et cetera. Choosing not to listen to speakers you don’t expect to agree with isn’t enough; others must be prevented from listening. That way you can frog-march the opposition into the dustbin of history, the way it was done by Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin, et al.

Hopefully, someone at Princeton will impart some sense into this young fool before he graduates. But I wouldn’t count on it.

Born is majoring is philosophy, so he will probably end up teaching (if not preparing lattes for Starbucks).

Campus Commies Keep Getting Scarier

Something very dark is festering on college campuses. Leftist groups are increasingly open about their extremism and their embrace of violence to achieve political ends.

This tweet from a moonbat sect at the University of Central Florida is typical of the mindset Antifa has been popularizing:

One of the group’s organizers sent a tweet with the hashtag #KillCapitalists that tries to justify the bloodlust by calling Henry Kissinger a dirty word and accusing him of killing 4 million people. Here’s another by the same character:

Make the Guillotine Red Again is a shibboleth among these Antifa types.

Foolish adolescent posturing? Of course. But foolishness can get out of control, as the nightmarish French Revolution demonstrated so graphically.

Charlie Kirk on Boy Scouts’ Latest Capitulation

Progressives have found that if you push the Boy Scouts of America these days, they will step back. They accepted belligerently homosexual scoutmasters, girls who pretend to be boys, and now girls who admit they are girls. Eagle Scout Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA understands what is going on here — the methodical deconstruction of traditional values:

Carlson is on point. Anything wholesome and sincere must be infiltrated and corrupted, so that it can be either co-opted or destroyed. That’s what the long march through the institutions is all about.

With the Boy Scouts descending into farce, there is one less pillar of traditional American culture for progressives to topple.

Common Sense Versus Slogans and Sex Toys

A countermoonbat confronted a mob of shrieking authoritarians outside a Katie Pavlich speech at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and temporarily silenced it with a dose of reality. But then the mob gathered its wits and responded by waggling sex toys and shrieking in unison, “This is what democracy looks like! C***s not Glocks!”

Logic is of limited usefulness when it comes to dealing with moonbats.

Leftist Inclusivity on Display at University of Michigan

While imposing their will on college campuses, leftists often bark the word “inclusive.” Here is how inclusive they are at the University of Michigan:

A Leadership Institute employee was allegedly assaulted and had his cell phone damaged by a protester at Wednesday night’s Charles Murray lecture.

As Campus Reform reported Wednesday, the event was effectively shut down by protesters who repeatedly disrupted Murray throughout his talk before proceeding to take their demonstration outside, where Regional Field Coordinator Nathan Berning was filming.

A video obtained by Campus Reform shows Berning filming a group of protesters until one of them knocks his phone to the ground while another proceeds to throw it from the plaza where the demonstration occurred to the street below, all of which was caught on tape.

Inclusivity entails excluding those who do not comply with progressive dogma. This applies to Charles Murray because of a book he coauthored in 1994 that acknowledged politically incorrect realities regarding the relation between race and IQ. It also applies to anyone leftists associate with him.
