Social Justice Department Declares That Most Hate Crimes Go Unreported

Despite the profusion of hate hoaxes, the continuingly moonbatty Social Justice Department tells us that hate crimes are actually underreported:

A majority of hate crime incidents are not reported to police, according to the results of a new Department of Justice hate crime report released Thursday.

The report, which included data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ National Crime Victimization Survey, also found that between 2004 to 2015, there was an average of 250,000 hate crime incidents each year.

Considering that a majority of Americans belong to at least one group that cultural Marxists have been playing off against nonhandicapped nontransgender white male heterosexuals who aren’t Muslim, and that so much as looking at or not looking at any of these people can qualify as a bias incident, I’m surprised there aren’t a quarter million hate crimes every day.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions assembled the Hate Crimes Subcommittee in early April following a February executive order signed by President Donald Trump directing Sessions to establish a Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety.

Some thought that the priority would now be enforcing immigration law. Hopefully, they will get around to that now that the problem of hate crimes has been solved:

The Senate also unanimously passed a bipartisan resolution condemning racial, religious and ethnic hate crimes last April.

If passing laws can change the very climate, surely it can put an end to hate.

Moonbat Beauty Fashion: Rainbow Armpit Hair

What do you get if you cross feminism with obnoxiously in-your-face pro-LGBT “virtue” signaling? Girls with rainbow armpit hair. A fashion alert from Allure:

St. Louis–based hairstylist Caitlin Ford took a break from dying her clients’ hair in Lisa Frank-inspired shades to give someone rainbow armpit hair. “My client wanted something fun she could show off while she was out celebrating St. Louis Pride Fest [last] weekend,” Ford tells Allure. To grant her wish, Ford dyed her client’s underarm hair five different vibrant hues in ROYGBIV order.

These days, you can find pro-perversion propaganda literally anywhere:

Rainbows Pits 🌈🌈🌈 Got to do my bff @potatoeslaughing today! Check out the process on my story! She also wanted some rainbow underarms for St. Louis Pride this weekend!

New German Law: Fines Up to $57 Million for Social Media Thought Crime

Defeating the Wehrmacht was hard enough. Rooting out the authoritarian mentality that gave birth to it does not seem possible. Possibly as part of its campaign to crush resistance to Islamization, Germany has declared war on social media:

Germany has passed a contentious law allowing fines of up to €50 million ($57 million) for social networks like Facebook and Twitter if they don’t pull hate speech down quickly enough. Called the Network Enforcement Act or “Facebook Law,” it was passed by Germany’s parliament on Friday, and will go into effect starting this October. …

Social networks could be fined for failing to remove material that his “clearly criminal” within 24 hours. Depending on how severe the content is deemed, that could rise to €50 million ($57 million).

If that sounds like anything short of tyranny, you might be thinking that German laws are reasonable. On the contrary,

Germany has some of the world’s toughest laws around defamation, hate crimes involving public incitement and threats of violence. That includes prison sentences for Holocaust denial and inciting hatred against minorities.

“Inciting hatred against minorities” can be stretched to cover any criticism of Islam, or resistance to the government’s policy of displacing the native population with vast numbers of unemployable welfare colonists from the Third World.

Attempt to Inflict P.C. Revision on Canadian National Anthem Fails

Finally, some good news out of Justin Trudeau’s Canada:

The House of Commons overwhelmingly passed a private member’s bill last summer that would alter the national anthem by replacing “in all thy sons command” with “in all of us command” as part of a push to strike gendered language from O Canada.

Although the bill sailed through the House with government approval, Conservative senators opposed to the changes have scored a victory in the Red Chamber. A yearlong campaign successfully punted a vote on the bill until the fall, at the earliest, and even then the legislation faces an uncertain future.

“I’m trying to protect the tradition rather than, you know, water it down with a politically correct version that is historically inaccurate,” Conservative Senator David Wells said in an interview with CBC News on Tuesday. …

Wells and roughly 20 other senators have said they oppose efforts to tinker with the lyrics written by a man long dead.

Although the 1908 lyrics were changed prior to O Canada becoming the official national anthem in 1980, the point is still valid. The ongoing abolition of Civil War monuments demonstrates that we cannot rely on a sense of honor to prevent liberals from revising or eradicating whatever they can get their claws on in order to impose their ideology on every facet of existence, and they tend to loathe anything that was around before they were. Shakespeare will follow. Then the Bible.

No doubt Canada’s ultra-moonbat Prime Minister is bummed over this setback. Trudeau can take solace that like rust, moonbattery never sleeps. Scrape a little away and it will soon return, unless we keep scraping.

Eventually O Canada will read like Katy Perry lyrics.

Insane: Illegal Alien Awarded $190,000 for Being Turned Over to Immigration Officials

In a sane civilization, lawbreakers are punished. In a dying society run by lunatics, they are rewarded; if there is any punishment, it is for enforcing the law. I refer to San Francisco:

A man from El Salvador in the U.S. illegally who sued San Francisco after police turned him over to immigration authorities in violation of the city’s sanctuary law is set to be awarded $190,000, his attorney said Thursday.

Pedro Figueroa-Zarceno, 33, reached the settlement agreement with the city attorney’s office, said Saira Hussain, a staff attorney at the Asian Law Caucus who represented Zarceno. The agreement must be approved by the Board of Supervisors.

That should be no problem in San Franfreakshow. The Board of Supervisors is comprised of a conga line of ultra-left weirdos who do not hesitate to flush away taxpayers’ money in the name of their depraved ideology.

Figueroa-Zarceno sued San Francisco in January for violating its sanctuary city law.

That law is in turn a violation of federal law. Federal law takes precedence. But in a dying society, the law breaks down.

The Ultimate Wrestling Heel: Dan Richards, the Progressive Liberal

dan-richards-progressive-liberal

The job of a heel in professional wrestling is to get people to hate him. No one is better at it than the Progressive Liberal:

Kentucky-based Appalachian Mountain Wrestling has graced the world with the presence of “Progressive Liberal” Dan Richards. …

The Progressive Liberal is a solid character. He strikes the right level of condescension and punchable smugness. His line delivery’s a little suspect and his actual wrestling leaves something to be desired, but those can be remedied. At its root, this is a good gimmick. If you’re in Kentucky and free on Friday, watch Richards against some guy in a sleeveless shirt in a “Crybaby Match,” where the loser “will have to wear a diaper and suck on a bottle.”

Get a taste of the Progressive Liberal from this Appalachian Mountain Wrestling video (no need to watch the whole thing; Richards makes his first appearance around 1:00):

For some reason, his promises to “reprogram” and “reeducate” his audiences in eastern Kentucky and get them jobs in clean energy have not won him much affection.

Dan Richards is actually a real estate agent named Daniel Harnsberger. He says he is a moonbat in real life. Maybe the Democrats will run him for office. They are tone-deaf enough.

Keith Olbermann Loses It Completely, Calls for National General Strike

Amazingly, liberals still cling bitterly to their Russian conspiracy theories, even with a CNN producer and avowed communist CNN contributor Van Jones admitting that there is no beef in this nothingburger (which CNN recently tried to push with a phony story that it had to retract). Yet more amazingly, Keith Olbermann still manages to escalate his hyperbole, long after turning all the knobs to 11 and driving off the last semi-sane members of his audience. Watch in astonishment as this maniac accuses Trump of “the worst set of crimes in American history” — despite Trump not having broken any laws. Then make plans for your time off work, because Überdouche has called for a national general strike to protest the election results:

It doesn’t occur to these clowns that they are making Trump look credible by comparison, or that they are inoculating him against any real scandals that might occur down the road. Who will listen the next time they cry wolf?

BLM Cops Endanger Fellow Officer With Leaks, Get Demoted, Now Want Money

One thing Black Lives Matter types have going for them is that they are never encumbered by shame. For example, Abdul Pridgen and Vance Keyes, who were at the time Assistant Chief and Deputy Chief, respectively, in the Fort Worth Police Department, endangered fellow officer William Martin by leaking his personal information. Martin had been involved in an arrest that racial grievance mongers like faux black person Shaun King hyped as evidence of oppression. Pridgen and Keyes did their part for the BLM cause by leaking Martin’s body cam footage, internal discipline records, Social Security number, and home address, also endangering his pregnant wife. The assassination of five officers in nearby Dallas last year for reasons pertaining to BLM ideology provides context.

Pridgen and Keyes clearly deserved to be fired, if not brought up on charges. Yet no doubt thanks to the same “oppressed” status that was likely to be instrumental in their rise toward the top of the department, they received only wrist slaps. They were demoted, and Keyes got a 3-day suspension. Pridgen is currently off on “stress leave.”

Incredibly yet predictably, they are now presenting themselves as victims. Like all noisy victims, they expect to be rewarded. Check out their GoFundMe page:

Pridgen and Keyes were figuratively lynched for speaking against unlawful police practices. They were deliberately defamed and their careers were irreparably harmed. …

Please donate whatever amount you can. No amount is too small. These funds will be used to fight for justice and their Initiative for Transparent and Accountable Policing (ITAP).

Funny, Google doesn’t turn up any evidence that ITAP even exists, apart from the GoFundMe plea.

Their goal is $76,000. They aren’t likely to make it. But even the $485 sent in so far by their fellow moonbats is appalling.

Charlie Gard: Eurocrats Sentence Baby to Death

The point of all the tedious squabbling over healthcare that has been clogging up the news is to determine how quickly and under what conditions the federal government will consolidate control over the healthcare industry. Charlie Gard demonstrates the horror that awaits us when that bipartisan goal has been achieved.

Charlie is a 10-month-old with the misfortune of suffering from mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome, and the possibly still greater misfortune of having been born in a country with socialized medicine. Matt Walsh reports:

The hospital that had been treating the boy, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, made the determination that nothing more can be done for him and he must be taken off of life support. He should “die with dignity,” they said. The parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, disagreed.

This is the very crucial thing to understand: they are not insisting that GOSH be forced to keep Charlie on life support. Rather, they want to take him out of the hospital and to America to undergo a form of experimental therapy that a doctor here had already agreed to administer. Chris and Connie raised over $1.6 million to fund this last ditch effort to save their child’s life. All they needed the British hospital to do was release their child into their care, which doesn’t seem like a terribly burdensome request.

Why should they have to request it? They are the parents. They can demand it.

But I’m forgetting; Britain is run by progressive statists. According to their ideology, “it takes a village” to raise a child. As stated more explicitly by former MSNBC propagandist Melissa Harris-Perry, children belong not to their families, but to their “communities” (i.e., the government).

The hospital refused to give Charlie back to his parents. The matter ended up in the courts, and, finally, in the last several hours, the European Court of “Human Rights” ruled that the parents should be barred from taking their son to the United States for treatment.

You won’t find a better example of Orwellianism than the tyranny inflicted in the name of “human rights.”

The court ruled that it is “in his best interest” for Charlie to die. Therefore, dying is his only right. His parents have no right to intervene.

In Europe, a mother may kill her baby but she is not allowed to keep him alive.

This is wrong, and it is coming our way. Walsh gives three reasons why:

1. This is what happens with socialized medicine.
2. This is what happens when parental rights are subordinate to the State.
3. This is what happens when human life is not considered sacred.

Britain is only a couple exits ahead of us on the highway to hell. That’s why every inch is worth fighting over.

Justice Department Hosts Event Honoring Transsexual Militancy

Supposedly, change has come to Washington as a result of the last election. Yet the Social Justice Department has not stopped promoting depravity:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Wednesday hosted an event honoring a transgender teenager who sued in order to use the mens’ restroom at [her] high school. …

Gavin Grimm was recognized by DOJ Pride, an organization comprised of members of the LGBTQ community, for [her] “outstanding contributions to the LGBT community” at a ceremony, which was first announced by BuzzFeed last week.

Hilariously, Miss Grimm is a dead ringer for Pat in the old Saturday Night Live skits, back when we were allowed to laugh at gender bending instead of being forced to revere it.

Obama’s outrageous decree that people be allowed in public school restrooms and locker rooms intended for the opposite sex has been rescinded. But the culture in District of Corruption remains committed to imposing degeneracy on every corner of the country.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was not present at the event, but he has said the DOJ would work to defend transgender rights, despite the Trump administration’s reversal of the Obama policy.

“We will protect and defend and celebrate that, and protect the rights of all transgender persons,” Sessions said in a conversation with an intern that was caught on camera.

Note he said “celebrate.” We are not talking about rights in any meaningful sense. We are talking about forcibly imposing depravity on normal people as part of a cultural Marxist agenda. Sessions seems willing to go along, in hopes that someone in the liberal media will pat him on the head and say he’s not so bad for a Republican.

That’s not Pat, it’s Miss Gavin Grimm.

Stray Piece of Plastic Wrap Investigated as Hate Crime

Libs are getting desperate in their search for racism against someone other than whites:

University of Maryland campus police launched an investigation into a discarded piece of plastic wrap Tuesday after receiving a report about a “possible hate-bias” incident.

“Out of an [over]abundance of concern, we are looking into this matter and conducting a review of our cameras in the area,” the department informed students via email, though The Diamondback reports that some students were upset when officers initially dismissed the object as garbage.

A UMD student tweeted a picture of the plastic wrap suggesting he was convinced that the detritus was intended to resemble a noose because it had been “under a tree at frat row,” alluding to an actual noose that was reportedly found in a fraternity house in April.

“Police say that since it wasn’t hanging…it’s just trash,” the student remarks, inserting a skeptical emoji before asking viewers to “Make your own conclusions.”

Many will conclude that moonbats are full of crap. Now even stray pieces of rubbish count as racist if they have knots in them, on the grounds that nooses have knots, and as we all know, only sacred black people were ever hanged.

They ought to show enough initiative to tie a real noose and hang it from a tree. These days kids are getting too lazy even to stage a proper hate hoax.

Behold the supposed hate-bias incident:

On the possibly overgenerous assumption that hysterical tweeter Jaime Hurtado could not have been admitted to college if he is stupid enough to genuinely believe this random piece of trash is a hate crime, he has been inducted onto the Hate Hoax List.

Moonbats Resist and Feel Safe by Wearing Fake Nipples

Keith Olbermann disrespectfully wrapping himself in the American flag is not quite the strangest form the “Resistance” has taken. Some moonbats are countering last November’s election results by wearing false nipples:

Enter Just Nips, the “official nipples of The Resistance movement,” according to founder Molly Borman, who adopted that line as the company’s unofficial slogan after seeing it circulate online.

Started last January in time for the Women’s March, Just Nips provides synthetic nipples that you can wear over your bra or over your nipples.

Fake nipples are the ideal accessory for woke moonbats who stay abreast of the issues.

Borman sees her product as a direct challenge to President Trump’s administration.

According to Borman, “a lot of women feel unsafe” under Trump, and her product helps provide comfort and “a safe space.”

Borman says she has been selling 10,000 fake nipples per month at $24.99 a pair. As a capitalist, I admire her ability to convert sheer idiocy into cash.

The BBC’s consumer-affairs “Watchdog” program found that samples of iced drinks from Starbucks and two other UK chains — Costa Coffee and Caffe Nero — contained “varying levels of [fecal] bacteria.” …

Tony Lewis, the head of policy at the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, said the levels found were “concerning.” He said the types of bacteria identified were “the source of human disease,” adding: “These should not be present at any level — never mind the significant numbers found.”

How fecal matter would get from between the ears of its pretentious and moonbatty customer base into the drinks was not explained.
