Angry White Guy Michael Moore Wants Angry White Guys to Die Out

Like most if not all progressives, Michael Moore is strongly in favor of white genocide. He seems to be forgetting something. Barks Moore:

“The angry white guy is dying out, and the Census Bureau has already told us that by 2050, white people are going to be the minority, and I’m not sad to say I can’t wait for that day to happen. I hope I live long enough to see it because it will be a better country.”

What does Moore see in the mirror if not an angry white guy?

If he really wants to make the country a better place…

Even Nancy Pelosi, whose district includes a high number of Antifa types, has unreservedly denounced this vile moonbat cult. Maybe if we can get the video below to Antifa’s Republican fans (McCain, Romney, Rubio), they will lay off with the nauseating praise and denounce it too:

Charlie Hebdo Denounces Victims of Texas Hurricane, Delights in Drownings

When Charlie Hebdo poked fun at Mohammad, Muslims turned their offices into a bloodbath. So the magazine resolved not to do that anymore. Now it goes after Texans enduring the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey instead:

Color of Change Starts Petition in Support of Houston Looters

Most decent people would agree that those who loot during disasters like Hurricane Harvey represent the dregs of humanity. But to moonbats, the looters are the good guys. When journalist Tom Llamas alerted authorities to masked thieves looting a supermarket, liberals denounced him as a “snitch.” Now Color of Change — cofounded by CNN regular and Obama Administration alumnus Van Jones — has launched a petition intended to get Llamas in trouble with his employers.

Anyone who could put this much spin on a baseball would be pitching in the majors:

Dear ABC,

We are asking you and reporter, Tom Llamas to issue an apology. Instead of reporting on the desperate circumstances of Hurricane Harvey with compassion, he actually diverted first responder resources that could be used to save stranded families–and called the police on victims searching for food. In times of emergency and natural disaster, television news is often the only way that bystanders can ascertain what’s happening. News media has the sacred duty of framing tragedies in an honest, unbiased, and compassionate manner.

“Compassion” means abandoning the rule of law and allowing criminals to seize on disasters as opportunities to loot. If Linda Sarsour can do it, why not local lowlifes?

Noted anticapitalist Naomi Klein concurs:

During a crisis is when we need law the most. No situation is so dire that collapse into anarchy can’t worsen it. But liberals believe that you should never let a crisis go to waste.

Traditionally, looters are shot. There is good reason for this. But anyone who deserves to be shot will be championed by progressives at the expense of law-abiding citizens.

Linda Sarsour Exploits Harvey to Divert Donations to Leftist Political PAC

Militant Islamomoonbat Linda Sarsour, who has called for jihad against the U.S. government, and who became infamous by organizing the pussy hat spectacle in D.C., has been raking in money as a hoaxer and a grifter. For her, Hurricane Harvey was an opportunity to make a buck:

Outspoken Muslim activist Linda Sarsour was excoriated on social media for putting out a tweet asking for donations for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The ostensibly charitable act was undermined when people read the fine print to see where the donations went. …

The link went to a donation page for the “Texas Organizing Project Education Fund,” and described their mission: “Together we will organize and advocate for our devastated communities, shining a spotlight on inequalities that emerge in the restoration of lives, livelihoods, and homes, amplifying the needs of hard-hit communities, and providing legal assistance for residents wrongfully denied government support.”

The project is funded by the “Opens Society Foundation,” which was founded by billionaire leftist George Soros.

Thanks to Soros, rats like Linda Sarsour are never short of funds to spend on their cultural Marxist endeavors. But they will cheat dupes out of more when they get the chance.

Not to be outdone, Sheila Jackson Lee is demanding a staggering $150 billion in Harvey aid from federal taxpayers. No doubt she plans to play a major role in seeing how it is dispersed.

Meet the Fashion Police

When Melania Trump started off for Texas wearing high-heeled shoes, she was ridiculed by the fashion police at Vogue:

Mrs. Trump boarded Air Force One wearing a pair of towering pointy-toed snakeskin heels better suited to a shopping afternoon on Madison Avenue or a girls’ luncheon at La Grenouille.

While the nation is riveted by images of thousands of Texans wading with their possessions, their pets, their kids, in chest-high water, desperately seeking refuge; while a government official recommend that those who insist on sheltering in place write their names and social security numbers on their arms, Melania Trump is heading to visit them in footwear that is a challenge to walk in on dry land.

Naturally, the First Lady wore different shoes after arriving at her destination.

Maybe the author of the hit piece ought to change something too. Meet Lynn Yaeger, Chief of the Moonbat Fashion Police:

Polar Bear Hunting Appears to Be Escalating

Looks like polar bear hunting is no longer just a matter of beating people unconscious for being racist enough to have politically incorrect skin. Like all things leftist lately, it has escalated:

A mysterious series of apparently random killings in Kansas City, mostly committed in isolated spots along walking trails, came to an end when the killer deviated from his pattern with a brazen, execution-style shooting in broad daylight on a city street, according to Jackson County prosecutors.

The fifth and final killing came shortly after noon on Aug. 13, when 22-year-old Fredrick Demond Scott allegedly followed a man from a city bus, crept up behind him on the street and shot him in the head — before turning and getting right back on a bus.

Like the other four victims Scott is either charged with killing or is suspected of killing, Steven Gibbons was a stranger but fit a specific profile: they were all white men between ages 54 and 67.

Not so random then.

All five victims were shot. Four were shot in the head — three in the back of the head. One was shot in the back.

“They didn’t see it coming,” Scott said under his breath while being questioned by detectives.

Middle-aged white males are demonized relentlessly by the liberal establishment that controls what people see on TV and are told in schools. Specifically, they are portrayed as the true authors of blacks’ self-inflicted problems.

The Welfare State has generated a vast surplus of useless, perpetually aggrieved sociopaths with low IQs, lower impulse control, and minimal exposure to moral values. It’s a wonder liberal ideology hasn’t inspired hundreds of Fredrick Demond Scotts.

Evergreen State College Follows University of Missouri Into Ruin

The wages of moonbattery is ruin. Mizzou is learning it. So is Evergreen State College:

Administrators at The Evergreen State College have announced that the embattled school faces a massive $2.1 million budget shortfall due in part to a drop in enrollment, and the institution has already handed out some temporary layoff notices as officials grapple with balancing the books.

Plunging enrollment is an inevitable result of the school becoming a laughing stock after a moonbat mob was allowed to take it over:

First they cornered white biology Professor Bret Weinstein and shouted him down over his choice not leave campus during a “Day of Absence,” in which white students and employees were asked to stay off campus for the day. The aggressive actions against the professor forced him to hold class off campus at a nearby park.

Next, students accused the university’s administration of racism during a contentious meeting, during which they yelled at and belittled President George Bridges. At this meeting, some white students were told to stand in the back of the room because of the color of their skin. The progressive student protesters also issued a string of demands to combat the alleged racism on campus, most of which the university agreed to implement at an unknown fiscal cost.

The college was also shut for multiple days in early June because of threats it received. Student vigilantes even took to patrolling campus with bats. Later reports about the school revealed that radicalism and anarchy had been pushed at Evergreen State College since at least 2008.

What goes around comes around. The leftist college has been evangelizing on behalf of economic destruction. A memo from school officials dated Monday reads in part:

“… In a college where 89 percent of the operating budget is in salaries and benefits, it is impossible to reduce the budget by substantial amounts without giving up positions. In anticipation of this, we will soon be announcing a hiring freeze.”

Moonbat professors will be bitten in the seat of the pants by the monster they helped create.

Denmark Steps Back From Collectivist Abyss

If you ask a moonbat where socialism has ever worked, they will either regurgitate the preposterous lie that it has never been tried, or they will bark triumphantly, “Scandinavia!” Actually, Scandinavia is capitalist. It has inflicted upon itself excessive social benefits requiring equally excessive taxation, with a predictable effect on the culture and economy. Fortunately, steps are being taken to correct this. From Denmark:

The center-right coalition of Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen wants to shrink the country’s tax burden by 23 billion kroner ($3.7 billion), with the proposed measures to be phased in through 2025, according to a statement published on Tuesday. The administration also said it will “monitor” the corporate tax rate to ensure Denmark stays competitive with its trade partners.

“With this proposal, we’re tackling a number of concrete challenges,” Finance Minister Kristian Jensen said in the statement. “We’re increasing the gains associated with working, we’re making it more attractive to work more and we’re ensuring that it’s more worthwhile to save up toward retirement.”

The proposal is intended to lower the crippling tax burden from 47% to 44% — a small step, but a step in the right direction.

Moonbats who want to experience actual socialism are advised to visit Venezuela, Cuba, or North Korea.

Antifa Thugs Complain That Their Violence Is Portrayed as Violence

Presumably the media is still sympathetic to Antifa, which it was only recently lauding as heroes. But public relations realities in the wake of recent violence are forcing journalists to step back a little — and even to tell the public some truth. Antifa goons are not pleased:

Antifa leaders held a press conference on Monday to complain about the media leading their coverage of Sunday’s violent riots at Berkeley “with the bleeding stuff.”

“It is not always about the violence,” Antifa leader Alex U. Inn said, “and that’s why we’re here asking you as media representation to not focus on that all the time.”

Antifa is violence. That is its whole point, which is why these thugs show up with weapons where they think they can find conservatives to assault. If it were not for the violence they inflict and provoke, no one would be aware of Antifa.

“I’m not justifying it, I’m human naturing it,” Inn said. “In the sense that if somebody is in your face and going ‘nin nin nin’ and because they think they can because they’re privileged… we cannot take this lightly in San Francisco.”

She wouldn’t justify violence. But she would point out that opponents who have been dehumanized with the meaningless term “privileged” deserve violence.

Videos from the event on Sunday showed antifa mobs attacking right-wingers with sticks, mace and bottles of their own urine. Antifa were also seen spitting all over an innocent Trump supporter after attacking him with mace and stealing his Trump hat and glasses.

No doubt he was privileged.

At least Alex U. Inn. can rest assured that CNN will probably still revise its headlines on Antifa’s command.

Logging Business Crushed on Behalf of Locally Nonexistent Frog

Lunacy + tyranny = moonbattery:

A Louisiana family is facing $34 million worth of regulations if they continue developing a plot of land after federal officials declared it “critical habitat” for the dusky gopher frog.

Federal regulators are attempting to use the Endangered Species Act to stop commercial logging on the 1,650 acre piece of private land to create a sanctuary that might support the frog. The dusky gopher frog, however, has not been reported on the land or even in the wild areas of the state for 50 years, New Orleans’ The Times Picayune reports.

Like the Clean Air Act and many other overly broad regulations that superficially sound good to people who are not paying attention, the Endangered Species Act has been a carte blanche for radicalized federal agencies to impose tyranny.

Timber is obviously more useful than frogs. This is economic sabotage, carried out at the expense of indispensable property rights to advance antihuman enviromoonbat ideology.

In the unlikely event that you ever happen upon a dusky gopher frog, take care that authorities do not learn of its existence, or your property is likely to be confiscated or rendered useless.

Christianity Pushes Back With Nashville Statement

Will leftists destroy Christianity from within, carving out the content and replacing it with degenerate moonbattery? Not if Christians push back:

A nationwide coalition of more than 150 conservative Christian leaders signed a statement, released Tuesday, affirming their beliefs on human sexuality, including that marriage is between one man and one woman and approval of “homosexual immorality” is sinful.

The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood’s list of 14 beliefs, referred to as the Nashville Statement, is a response to an increasingly post-Christian, Western culture that thinks it can change God’s design for humans, according to the statement.

“Our true identity, as male and female persons, is given by God. It is not only foolish, but hopeless, to try to make ourselves what God did not create us to be,” the statement from the coalition members reads.

The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood convened a meeting of evangelical leaders, pastors and scholars Friday at the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission’s annual conference in Nashville. The coalition discussed and endorsed the statement.

Naturally, the fifth column is livid:

In a series of tweets, Pastor Brandan Robertson of MissionGathering Christian Church in San Diego, an LGBT activist who helped organize a protest at the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission conference, called the statement an affront to God’s creative design.

“When your theology breeds death, your theology is not of God,” he tweeted.

Actually, it is the glorification of perversion that breeds death. Over 1 million people died of AIDS in 2015. In stark contrast, normal families and healthy sexuality breed life; that is their purpose.

Kathy Griffin Rescinds Apology

When Kathy Griffin’s over-the-top vileness endangered her career, she cried for the cameras and pretended to be a victim. No one bought it. Now she has officially rescinded her supposedly heartfelt apologies. Yet she is not done playing the victim.

In June, after her infamous severed head stunt had reportedly terrified Trump’s 11-year-old son, she made a spectacle of her victimhood:

“I saw what they were doing and I went oh, okay, they’re trying to spin and they’re making it about Barron,” she said. “Obviously that was never my intent. I would never want to hurt anyone much less a child,” she added.

Yeah right. She had shrieked this earlier:

“I’m happy to deliver beat down to Donald Trump — and also to Barron. You know a lot of comics are going to go hard for Donald, my edge is that I’ll go direct for Barron.”

Griffin denounced Barron as suffering from autism.

But for the time being, she is in self-pity mode:

Griffin then argued she had suffered enough over the incident saying she “lost everybody” meaning her celebrity friends, plus the cancellation of her comedy tour after threats to various theaters. “I mean, these Trump fans they’re hardcore,” Griffin said.

At this point, the female co-host pointed out that the liberal celebrities who criticized Griffin’s stunt weren’t doing so because they liked Trump. In other words, doesn’t the universal condemnation suggest she really did go too far? “No, you’re full of crap. Stop this,” Griffin replied.

Ideally, we should hate the moonbattery but love the moonbat. People of Kathy Griffin’s caliber don’t make it easy.

Moonbat Disrupts Bullfight, Gets Gored

Sometimes moonbats atone for their many misdeeds by providing us with laughs:

An anti-bullfighting activist jumped into the arena in Carcassone, southern France, on Sunday and was promptly attacked by one of the animals he wants to protect, local police said.

Two protesters, a man and a woman, were in the audience before managing to make their way into the main ring during the “novillada”, a series of fights involving young bulls.

One bull charged at the man who, according to police a received “a long but not deep” injury from its horns.

It easily could have been fatal. God watches over drunks and fools.

Earlier two other protesters had briefly hung a banner saying “Stop Bullfighting” from the ramparts of the medieval French town.

Legal bullfighting still exists in parts of southern France as a protected local tradition dating back centuries. As with most traditions, militantly tolerant progressives find it intolerable.

Having killed the circus, likeminded moonbats in the USA are now coming after rodeos.

Even Those Who Struggle Mightily to Lose Weight Are Guilty of Thin Privilege

Cultural Marxism constantly expands by inventing new victim groups to alienate from the core population. Among the most recent is those who base their personal identity on being overweight, and are oppressed by those who wield “thin privilege” by being in better shape.

But what about people who had a weight problem, but through self-discipline got the better of it? Are they to be hated for being oppressors too?

Yes. In a piece from last year, Everyday Feminism explains why (bold in original):

Because privilege isn’t actually dependent on whether you “worked for” it or not.

Furthermore, if you think you deserve anything because you worked for it, you are doubly bad:

[I]f you believe that you “deserve” your privilege (perhaps because you “worked for” it), then you also inherently believe that others “deserve” to be oppressed.

That would make you not only privileged but an unclean thought criminal.

Whatever burden you may bear, struggling to overcome it is counterproductive, because success would only turn you into an oppressor with privilege. Egalitarianism decrees that everyone is equal, whether they wallow in self-indulgence or struggle to improve themselves. However, those with privilege are less equal, because they oppress sacred victims. The only justifiable behavior is to whine, snivel, and throw tantrums — which liberals do relentlessly, thus securing the moral high ground.
