Not to be outdone in political correctness by Bud Selig’s announcement that Major League Baseball will now go out of its way to recruit players based on race, the National Hockey League is climbing aboard the fashionable homosexual bandwagon:
The NHL has taken the biggest step yet of any major sport to welcome gay players, reports the New York Times and Reuters. The league has teamed up with the You Can Play Project, a year-old advocacy group, to educate teams and players and generally raise awareness about homophobia.
That is, to advocate exceedingly unhealthy and distasteful sexual deviancy.
A heavy emphasis will be placed on working with rookies.
Get them while they are young and malleable. Libs apply the same strategy to schoolchildren.
No player has come forward as gay in the NHL — or in any of the four big US leagues for that matter — but a founder of You Can Play says the group is preparing for that day.
“We’re ready to do whatever that player wants,” says Patrick Burke, a scout for the Philadelphia Flyers. “If he wants to do a thousand interviews and march in pride parades, we’re equipped to handle that.”
But are hockey fans? Examples of “pride parades”:
From here, it will get more disgusting than we can even imagine. The stakes in the Culture War could not be higher.

Democrats and their Republican coconspirators haven’t even rammed amnesty down our throats yet, and already it is having the intended effect at the border:
Officials say the number of people entering the U.S. illegally is way up…
Linda Vickers, who owns a ranch in Brooks County [Texas], which is Ground Zero for the immigration debate, pins the blame directly on talk of ‘amnesty’ and a ‘path to citizenship’ for people who entered the U.S. illegally.
She recalls one man being arrested on her ranch not long ago.
“The Border Patrol agent was loading one man up, and he told the officer in Spanish, ‘Obama’s gonna let me go’.”
Border Patrol agents report that immigrants are crossing the border, and in some cases surrendering while asking, “Where do I go for my amnesty?”
You can’t blame the hordes of illegal welfare colonists who invade our territory to scoop up the free money for despising our country enough to spit on its laws and its sovereignty. They mistake us for our government.
According to Vickers,
the current increase in illegal immigrant entries began last summer, at almost exactly the same time as President Obama unilaterally announced plans to no longer deport young people who came to the U.S. as children with their illegal immigrant parents.
As a consequence, the number of invading welfare colonists found dead in inhospitable territory north of the border is way up. Casualties will rise with the thermometer as summer approaches. As Vickers points out,
“you are going to die out in this heat if you can’t find water.”
She is afraid of ‘carnage’ this summer, when temperatures in the Brush Country routinely reach 115 degrees.
The details of the final amnesty arrangement don’t matter, so long as everyone knows it is on the way:
She says immigrant smugglers, who charge between $2000 and $7000 per person to smuggle them into the U.S., routinely lie to would be immigrants, and the current lie is ‘if you can only get into the U.S., you’ll get amnesty.’
For all we know, this isn’t a lie. The Gang of Eightsters are shoving through their bill before anyone has time to discover what’s in it:
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, faulted Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy, D-Vt., for limiting the committee review of the gang of eight’s immigration proposal to just one hearing, scheduled for next week.
“A single hearing scheduled so quickly to discuss legislative language that is not yet even available is completely inadequate for Senators or the American people to get answers to the many questions a bill of this magnitude will inevitably raise,” Lee said in a statement. “We could not possibly have a meaningful hearing with a substantive discussion of what will surely be over 1,000 pages of provisions we haven’t even yet seen.”
Leahy initially told Republicans that he would not allow any hearings on the legislation to take place, but instead rush the bill to the Senate floor within two weeks.
Arrogance pays; Democrats used similar tactics to impose ObamaCare against the will of the public.
In addition to the media, they have the AFL-CIO to help them deal with those who won’t go along:
A principal official at the AFL-CIO, one of America’s biggest labor unions, said Wednesday the organization would politically demolish any politician who opposes mass amnesty for the country’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants.
Sheer numbers put assimilation out of the question. The damage to America caused by this invasion will be permanent. Our government is selling us out on a scale that makes Vidkun Quisling look like a patriot.

The use by moonbats of comic books to corrupt children with their depraved sexuality continues:
DC Comics told Wired that it will continue to expand the LGBT diversity of its superhero universe by introducing the first openly transgender character in a mainstream superhero comic.
In Batgirl #19, on sale [Wednesday] in both print and digital formats, the character Alysia Yeoh will reveal that she is a transwoman in a conversation with her roommate, Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl). Taking care to distinguish Yeoh’s sexual orientation from her gender identity, Batgirl writer Gail Simone noted that the character is also bisexual.
Never mind that kids would need an Ivy League degree in Gender Transmogrification Studies to make heads or tails of this sick lunacy. The idea is to plant seeds of corruption. Even if they don’t sprout, the moonbats responsible can take pleasure in knowing they put one over on the kids’ parents.
This is why parents need to know what their kids are reading. If it says “DC Comics” anywhere on it, may I suggest the garbage pail.
On a tip from Dean.
If you want to find true racists — those who genuinely hate people based solely on their ancestry — just listen for the loudest voices denouncing others as racists. MSNBC’s pretentiously mononymous Touré, for example:
MSNBC host Touré founded a student newspaper dedicated to black liberation theology while he was a college student attending Emory University from 1989 to 1992.
Touré’s flagship publication, The Fire This Time, lavished praise on famous anti-Semites, black supremacists, and conspiracy theorists whom Touré helped bring to campus. Before he became an intense-but-sardonic TV personality, Touré also decried “the suffocating white community” and defended a nationally famous fake hate crime.
In an interview with The Daily Caller, Touré described the newspaper as “an important black voice on campus” and “a form of community building.”
I guess that would make him a community organizer. As we have seen, even an adolescent fool can go far with those credentials these days — given the right skin color and sufficiently hard left ideology. Turdé qualifies.
Touré’s duties included more than just publishing. The young campus gadfly brought to Emory speakers whom The Fire described as “role models from the real world to speak about life” and a “stunning list of visitors.”
This list of role models included Conrad Muhammad, at the time the would-be heir to Louis Farrakhan’s anti-white Nation of Islam.
Among Conrad Muhammad’s contributions to modern liberal thought was blaming Jewish “bloodsuckers” for making a hole in the ozone layer.
Another role model: H. Rap Brown, a.k.a. Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, author of the autobiography Die Nigger Die! At one time, Brown had been on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List for inciting a riot and carrying a gun across state lines. He spent five years in prison in the ‘70s for a robbery conviction and converted to Islam.
If you want H. Rap’s autograph, you will have to get it by mail; he is now serving a life sentence for killing a police officer.
Also included was Lenora Fulani, who ran for President as an independent in 1988. In 1989, according to the New York Times, Fulani wrote that Jews “had to sell their souls to acquire Israel” and had to “function as mass murderers of people of color to stay there.”
The next role model should have her own show on MSNBC:
Frances Cress Welsing, a self described black supremacist … is famous for putting forward the theory that white people are the genetically defective descendants of albino mutants.
No doubt those who don’t agree with this theory are racists.
As for the fake hate crime:
Sabrina Collins, a black freshman at Emory, reported in March 1992 that a dormitory had been vandalized and racist words written on her walls. The news made national attention. Touré and others protested for television cameras. Collins said the event had traumatized her.
Six months later Collins admitted the entire dorm vandalism story was a hoax.
Like so many others.
But Touré continued to defend Collins’ allegations after she retracted them. “In the aftermath,” Touré wrote in The Fire This Time, “THE POSSIBILITY THAT COLLINS HERSELF PERPETRATED THE CRIME HAS SEEMED TO MINIMIZE THE INCIDENT’S IMPORTANCE. IN ANALYZING THE EVENT’S IMPORTANCE TO EMORY, IT IS NOT AT ALL IMPORTANT IF COLLINS DID IT.” (Emphasis added by Touré.)
Touré went on to insist the incident be used to leverage a list of demands against the university, “including instituting an African American studies class as a distribution requirement.”
With liberals, it all comes down to lies, coercion, and brainwashing. Boor-aye’s future in the establishment media is secure.

It would be hard to imagine a more striking story than the trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Yet the establishment press puts its devotion to leftist ideology even above cashing in on this lurid tale. Via Human Events:
A Delaware woman who worked for abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell recalled hearing one child “screaming” after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure at Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic.
Sherry West, of Bear, said she was loyal to Gosnell — who is now facing multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing children after they were delivered alive at his clinic — but said the incident “really freaked me out.”
When Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore pressed the 53-year-old West for specifics about the incident, West struggled to answer, clearly uncomfortable with the memory.
“I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.
West said she saw the child, whose face and features were not yet completely formed, lying on a glass tray on a shelf and she told a co-worker to call Gosnell about it and fled the room.
It’s a horror movie, yet real. The public would certainly be interested. Yet the reserved media seating at the trial has been empty:
Could it be because liberals’ god, Barack Hussein Obama, is infamous for his fanatical advocacy of denying medical treatment to infants who survive attempted abortions as an Illinois state senator? Or is it because his close allies at lavishly federally Planned Parenthood are involved in a similar case:
A series of emergency calls made from the Planned Parenthood of Delaware this year are raising concerns about what’s happening behind the closed doors.
Two former nurses who both quit are speaking exclusively with Action News about what they saw inside.
Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, “It was just unsafe. I couldn’t tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was.”
Werbrich alleges conditions inside the facility were unsanitary. …
“Planned Parenthood needs to close its doors, it’s needs to be cleaned up, the staff needs to be trained, said Werbrich.”
In Delaware, abortion clinics are not subject to routine inspections. The state only steps in when they have a patient complaint. Planned Parenthood is essentially in charge of inspecting itself.
Good thing local media isn’t always on the same page as the big boys with a seat at Obama’s table, or the public might never know.
Kirsten Powers, a liberal who shows encouraging signs of converting to sanity, is justifiably outraged:
It’s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell’s former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.
NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, “described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, ‘literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.” One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his “snipping” technique to use on infants born alive.
The implications for the ultimate moonbat sacrament (abortion) and by extension its most aggressive champion (Obama) are clear:
Planned Parenthood recently claimed that the possibility of infants surviving late-term abortions was “highly unusual.” The Gosnell case suggests otherwise.
Thus the national media is blacking it out:
A Lexis-Nexis search shows none of the news shows on the three major national television networks has mentioned the Gosnell trial in the last three months. The exception is when Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan hijacked a segment on Meet the Press meant to foment outrage over an anti-abortion rights law in some backward red state.
The Washington Post has not published original reporting on this during the trial and The New York Times saw fit to run one original story on A-17 on the trial’s first day. They’ve been silent ever since, despite headline-worthy testimony.
It isn’t just that the liberal media refuses to accurately depict what is going on in the world, effectively lying by omission. What is truly unnerving is its motives for lying. The people who program our televisions and print our newspapers don’t want the horror exposed because they don’t want it to stop.

Those who think the relentless intrusive obsessing on the Truman era’s Jackie Robinson doesn’t infuse baseball with sufficient political consciousness are advised not to worry:
Commissioner Bud Selig said Tuesday that he was creating a 17-member diversity task force to study and address the issue of on-field participation by African-Americans in Major League Baseball.
If there were one place where you could advance by talent rather than by being black, it would be sports. But apparently the MLB has not been keeping up with quotas.
Only 8.5 percent of the players on the 25-man rosters on opening day were African-American. Several teams, including the World Series champion San Francisco Giants, had none.
Could it be that most of the athletically talented blacks are playing basketball and football, where they are seen in numbers almost as grotesquely disproportionate to their percentage of the population as in television commercials? Nah, must be “racism.” The solution: recruit players based on their race.

With donations, it is hard to tell who you are really helping — and who you are hurting. Australia faces an existential threat from numberless hordes of welfare colonists that promise to displace the population, essentially erasing the country from existence and replacing it with a Third World hellhole. Watch them arrive in anything that will float:
Notice the Deutsche Bank logo? The explanation:
The 66 asylum seekers who [Tuesday] reached Geraldton, just 425km north of Perth, travelled to Australia in a fishing boat donated to Sri Lanka after the Boxing Day tsunami. …
Their vessel was branded with Deutsche Bank’s logo and was in bank colours with a spokesman confirming similar vessels were donated after Sri Lankan fishing communities were devastated by the 2004 tsunami. “Deutsche Bank contributed substantially to the 2004 tsunami relief efforts, including donating fishing boats to communities in Sri Lanka (where people) had lost their livelihood, this appears to be one of those boats,” a bank spokesman said.
Asylum boats are taken back to sea and burnt for quarantine reasons.
But not with the welfare colonists aboard. Their grandchildren if not their children will squat in the dust chewing dead locusts in a place that by then will no longer be called Australia.
