Moonbats Sign Petition To Remove George Washington Statue

If Mark Dice can do it, so can Infowars. At the University of Texas at Moscow on the Colorado (a.k.a. Austin), a faux moonbat collects signatures to take the next logical step after banning the Confederate Flag by removing statues of slave-owning Southern Founding Fathers like George Washington:

At this point it is quite likely that the Founding Fathers — within the sphere of politics, far and away the greatest men who ever lived — will become unpersons within our lifetimes for their failure to conform to current liberal dogma.

Jimmy Carter Denounces America as “the Most Warlike Country on Earth”

Decades pass, yet Jimmy Carter never changes. The 90-year-old leftist gadfly just denounced the USA as “the most warlike country on Earth.”

Coming from a pacifist moonbat, this is a serious insult. It isn’t America’s only sin:

“I think the American superpower goal should be to the champion of peace, and to be the champion of human rights, and to be the champion of the environment and to be the most generous nation on Earth,” he said. “Those are the elements that I hope eventually the United States will set as goals. We are the most warlike country on Earth. We are laggard in addressing the problem of global warming, for instance, and we are now violating about ten of the 30 paragraphs in the universal declaration of human rights, so I think this is something we should look upon as our duties for the future.”

If the USA pulls itself out of the hole previously known as Hope & Change, this is the old age Barack Hussein has to look forward to — a crazy old coot bitterly denouncing the country that once foolishly chose him as a leader. But if America doesn’t manage a comeback, as it did when Carter gave way to Reagan, Obama may continue wreaking havoc indefinitely instead of merely festering on the sidelines.

Not fond of the USA.

In Confirmation Hearings, Elena Kagan Stated “There Is No Federal Constitutional Right to Same-Sex Marriage”

Obama and Shrillary aren’t the only ones to “evolve” rather dramatically regarding the federal desecration of marriage on behalf of the radical homosexual agenda. Legal Insurrection recalls testimony by leftist Supreme Court Injustice Elena Kagan during her confirmation hearings. This is so straightforward, you had to know she didn’t mean it:

Senator John Cornyn: Do you believe that there is a federal constitutional right to samesex marriage?

Kagan: There is no federal constitutional right to same-sex marriage.

Or at least there wasn’t, until radical moonbats achieved a majority on the court. Kagan of course voted with that majority.

Don’t bother listening to their lies. Once you know they are liberals, you know that their policy once they are in power will be to push moonbattery as far as they can get away with without setting off armed revolt. One day they may push it ever farther.

The Phrase “Everyone Can Succeed” Banned as Racist at University of Wisconsin

Janet Napolitano’s University of California isn’t alone in banning innocuous expressions of the traditional American mindset on the grounds that they are not in accord with leftist dogma and are therefore racist. Gateway Pundit reports:

The University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point is the latest school to ban common phrases like, “everybody can succeed,” or “America is a melting pot” because of their racist nature.

Straight from the university’s website:

Nothing could be more irresponsible than to let the sort of malevolent kooks who would post a list like this shape young minds.

Certain phrases are excluded by the martinets of inclusivity apparently specifically because they support the individualist, can-do spirit of America. In the hellish moonbat dystopia that has been replacing our country, not everybody can succeed; only people enabled by Big Government coercion can succeed. America is not a melting pot; that would imply assimilating into American culture. The central purpose of political correctness is to destroy American culture — as we are seeing happen before our eyes.

La-La Land Infested by Naked Moonbats on Wheels

Hopefully you were able to avoid Los Angeles on Saturday:

Ride as bare as you dare.

That’s the dress code motto for World Naked Bike Ride Day (WNBR), an annual, international event held Saturday in Downtown Los Angeles where the clothing is optional.

The event is meant to create a body-positive atmosphere, encourage a car-free lifestyle and advocate for more bicycle-friendly communities, among other things. Hundreds of attendees pedaled au naturale Saturday through Downtown, Echo Park and surrounding areas.

There was a time when authorities discouraged public indecency. However,

a police cruiser was present at the event and helping to direct some traffic in the area.

So in other words, as long as you don’t do anything lewd and stay with the other participants — it’s allowed.

What the word “lewd” means now that it is not lewd to ride around naked on a bicycle is anyone’s guess.

#LoveWins Homofascists Go After Disabled Vet

Even after sharing it with priests by spitting on them, the gloating #LoveWins folks have plenty of love to spare for disabled veterans:

J.R. Salzman is a champion log roller and disabled Iraq war veteran who lost his right arm below the elbow, and had his left hand crushed.

He was commenting on the gay marriage case on Twitter when he came under twitter attack by despicable people who attacked him for losing an arm and being a veteran therefore ‘killing children and raping women’.

A little peek into the mentality of the militantly depraved community the liberal ruling class has been going to such nauseating lengths to celebrate:

Irish Pastor Faces Prison for Criticizing Islam

Tyrannical “hate speech” laws are evolving into sharia in Northern Ireland, where evangelical Christian pastor James McConnell faces 6 months in prison for criticizing Islam.

Pastor McConnell got himself in trouble on May 18, 2014, when he delivered a sermon that included this:

“The God who we worship and serve this evening is not Allah. The Muslim God, Allah, is a heathen deity. Allah is a cruel deity. Allah is a demon deity. A deity that this foolish government of ours … pays homage to, and subscribes financial inducements to curry their favor to keep them happy….

“While in Muslim lands Christians are persecuted for their faith; their homes burned, their churches destroyed, and hundreds of them literally have given their lives for Christ in martyrdom. A lovely young [Sudanese] woman by the name of Miriam, 27 years-of-age, because she has accepted Christ as her Savior, will be flogged publicly and hanged publicly. These fanatical worshippers are worshippers of the god called Allah. Ladies and gentlemen, that is a fact and it cannot be denied and it cannot be refuted.”

Islam’s useful idiot allies don’t have to refute it. They can just put you in jail for saying it.

“To judge by some of what I have heard in the past few months, you would think that Islam was little more than a variation of Christianity and Judaism. Not so. Islam’s ideas about God, about humanity, about salvation are vastly different from the teachings of the Holy Scriptures. Islam is heathen. Islam is satanic. Islam is a doctrine spawned in Hell.”

Reasonable people familiar with Mohammad and the sociopathic, bloodthirsty manner by which he established Islam would tend to agree. That’s why the Islamophile authorities want to keep us in the dark by throwing people like McConnell behind bars:

According to Northern Ireland’s Public Prosecution Service (PPS), McConnell violated the 2003 Communications Act by “sending, or causing to be sent, by means of a public electronic communications network, a message or other matter that was grossly offensive.”

Observers say that McConnell’s prosecution is one of a growing number of examples in which British authorities — who routinely ignore incendiary speech by Muslim extremists — are using hate speech laws to silence Christians.

Yet again we see that the term “grossly offensive” means “whatever offends the people in charge.”

Lest anyone buy into the Muslim–moonbat alliance’s inevitable screeching about “hate”:

McConnell stressed that he does not hate Muslims. “My church funds medical care for 1,200 Muslim children in Kenya and Ethiopia,” he said. “I’ve no hatred in my heart for Muslims, but I won’t be stopped from preaching against Islam.”

If you want to find real hate, try the Belfast Islamic Center, which turned him in to the authorities. Its executive director Raied al-Wazzan “is leading the push to prosecute McConnell.” He is also exploiting the sermon in other ways:

Al-Wazzan is now trying to leverage the controversy over McConnell’s remarks to shame local politicians into providing him with public land, for free, to build a mega-mosque in Belfast. “We need the land from the government,” he told the BBC. “And there is a huge demand for it. The Muslim population is growing in Belfast, in Northern Ireland, but especially in south Belfast.”

Background on al-Wazzan:

In January 2015, al-Wazzan drew attention to himself when he praised the Islamic State’s rule of the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, where jihadists have killed or expelled all of the city’s 2,000-year-old, 60,000-strong Christian community. Speaking to the BBC, al-Wazzan said: “Since the Islamic State took over, it [Mosul] has become the most peaceful city in the world.”

In short, al-Wazzan is a servant of evil. This lends support to McConnell’s observations.

Even at 78 years old, McConnell is willing to go to jail rather than recant. We are going to need a lot more like him to get through this disgraceful period of our history and pass the torch of Western Civilization on to future generations.

Bill Nye Tells the Kids There Are Too Many of Us

Bill Nye, the liberal establishment’s cartoonish Pseudoscience Guy, packages progressive ideology in childish goofiness so as to render it less menacing as he preaches disproven global warming theory to kids young enough to take it at face value. Although his attempts to implant fear of “climate change” are laughable, his underlying message should make your hair stand on end:

“Climate change is a real deal everybody…

“Now back in 1750 there were about one-and-a-half billion people in the world. Well today there is 7.2 going on 7.3 billion people.

“Well that’s the problem. There’s billions of people breathing and burning the same thin atmosphere.”

This is where the global warming hoax moves beyond a Trojan horse for more taxes, regulation, and wealth redistribution and into the still more malevolent area of population reduction.

Progressive authorities who believe there are too many of us are a lot more frightening than the prospect of the climate continuing to fluctuate like it always has.

Communist Executioner Little Thinker Doll

No liberal’s child’s playpen is complete without a Che Guevara Little Thinker doll:

che-guevara-little-thinker-doll

The cause Che fought for was communist totalitarianism. He fought for it by serving as a brutal dictator’s chief executioner. This position suited him well, as a few Che Guevara quotes attest:

“Go ahead and try them tomorrow morning — but execute them NOW!”

“Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”

“We don’t need proof to execute a man. We only need proof that it’s necessary to execute him. A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.”

“I’d like to confess, papa, at that moment I discovered that I really like killing.”

“He went into convulsions for a while and was finally still. Now his belongings were mine.”

That last one, referring to some helpless person he had just shot in the head at point-blank range, sums up left-wing politics nicely.

To progressives this fiend is a folk hero. Consider that before attempting to engage them as if they were sane.

Silver Lining to SCOTUS Homosexual Marriage Outrage

Let’s just play along for a moment with the idea that the Supremes interpret the Constitution, rather than issuing arbitrary decrees that are then wrapped in the Constitution for window dressing so we don’t rebel. That would mean that the homosexual marriage edict was good news for those who exercise their Second Amendment liberties by carrying concealed:

With the high court’s latest ruling on same-sex marriages, some contend the decision could lead to increased gun rights, specifically national CCW reciprocity, by using the same argument.

Friday the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the Fourteenth Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and recognize those sanctioned by other states.

“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the landmark decision that arguably made same sex marriage a reality in the 13 remaining states that continued to ban the practice.

With similar logic applied, gun rights advocates argue that the nation’s patchwork of firearms laws governing the concealed carry of handguns are now circumspect under the same guidelines. In short, they reason if marriage equality is guaranteed from state to state, then so should concealed carry rights.

“To paraphrase what Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy said about same-sex marriage,” noted Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms Chairman Alan Gottlieb in a statement Friday, “no right is more profound than the right of self-preservation, and under the Constitution, all citizens should be able to exercise the right of self-defense anywhere in the country. It disparages their ability to do so, and diminishes their personhood to deny the right to bear arms they have in their home states when they are visiting other states.”

Even if some of them apparently couldn’t care less what is written in the Constitution, the Supremes could be wondering if they have overstepped to the point of generating popular resistance, and be in a mood to make themselves look more legitimate. This might be a good time to ask why the Fourteenth Amendment doesn’t apply in repressive states like New York when it comes to guns, regarding not only concealed carry but also other unconstitutional restrictions.

Unfortunately, rather than sensibly apply their ruling to guns, they may repeal the Second Amendment altogether, just as the homosexual marriage decree effectively repeals the free exercise of religion clause in the First. Then we will find out whether they need to worry about whether we think they have overstepped.

Even Cher Gets It

Cher is a moonbat and a nitwit. But she would make a much better Secretary of State than John Kerry:

Someone get the word to Obama. He won’t listen to grownups, but he might listen to Cher.

Whoops… Too late. Obama has already made it official that he will grant the maniacs running Iran nuclear weapons with which to kill us:

The P5+1 countries led by the United States under Barack Obama have caved in to Iranian demands and will not insist on inspections of nuclear installations as part of a deal on Iran’s nuclear weapons program, Channel 1 reported Sunday.

They might as well just hand them the Bomb and get it over with.

The Supremes’ Other Terrible Ruling: “Desegregating” Nice Neighborhoods Into Ghetto

Lost in the outrage after the irresponsible Supreme Court decrees imposing homosexual marriage on the states and rescuing ObamaCare was a comparably tyrannical ruling issued last Thursday that will facilitate Obama’s campaign to spread the ghetto into nice neighborhoods:

In a 5-4 ruling, the court said certain housing policies that put minorities at a disadvantage, even if they aren’t expressly intended to discriminate, can be challenged in court.

The court sided with a community organization alleging that Texas’ housing department had improperly clustered Section 8 housing in low-income, high-crime areas — essentially preserving the segregation that federal housing law was designed to end.

Texas had argued that the lawsuit was invalid, and the question before the high court was whether the Fair Housing Act — a law intended to outlaw racial discrimination in housing — allows people to sue over practices that might not be explicitly discriminatory, but end up hurting minorities disproportionately.

You have worked hard so as to be able to live in a nice neighborhood where you can raise your kids in safety, and you don’t want some Section 8 crack house opening up across the street? Then you’re a racist.

Most Americans are not on board with the Obama’s use of federal coercion to spread the ghetto to every corner of the country. But apparently we don’t have much of a say at this point.

Pervert Pride Celebrants Spit on Priest

This appears to be what gloating homofascists mean by #LoveWins:

Father Jonathan Morris has gained prominence as a Fox News commentator on religious affairs. A man with an air gentleness and reason, he is as far from a hateful person as it is possible get. Yet, he reports on his Twitter feed that he was spat upon yesterday at the gay marriage celebration in New York City.

Father Jonathan responded with typical grace:

“Walking down Broadway and 22nd St just now, I ran into gay marriage parade. Two men walked by and spat on me. Oh well… I deserve worse,” Morris tweeted. …

“The two men who spat on me are probably very good men caught up in excitement and past resentment. Most in that parade would not do that,” he added.

It is doubtful his graciousness would stop them from spitting on him again if they get the chance.

Fortunately most of the horrific diseases spread by homosexual activity are not communicated through saliva.
