Virginia Governor Race Produces New Low for Political Ads

This ad in support of Democrat Ralph Northam, who is running for Governor of Virginia against Republican Ed Gillespie, is either the most cartoonishly ham-fisted demagoguery I have seen yet or a frightening glimpse at what moonbats have managed to convinced themselves reality looks like:

In real life, if a maniac runs over innocent victims with a pickup truck, it is far more likely to be a Muslim immigrant running over regular Americans, as occurred today in Manhattan.

According to Quinnipiac,

Non-white likely voters back the Democrat 72 – 15 percent, with 2 percent for [Libertarian Cliff] Hyra. White voters are divided 46 – 46 percent, with 4 percent for Hyra.

It could be that Northam’s supporters have decided to push all their chips onto “nonwhite,” knowing that white liberals will support their candidate anyway. If he succeeds, expect this kind of over-the-top demonization to become standard fare.

Don’t Try National Anthem Stunts in China

Cognitively subnormal NFL zillionaires kneel during the national anthem to let their fans know what they think of America, which they denounce for oppressing them. Guess what would happen if they pulled the same stunt in America’s rival China?

China’s largely rubber-stamp parliament is considering jail terms of up to three years for people who disrespect the national anthem or flag in public, while an existing anthem law will be applied in Hong Kong, state media said on Tuesday.

Colin Kaepernick’s followers would never have a chance to indulge in their anthem antics in China anyway. In China, they would be pushing brooms — still an improvement over what they would be doing for a living in their ancestral homeland Africa.

UTSA Student Learns That Muslims Rank Higher Than Gays

Bad news for the LGBTQ community: there is room for only one belligerently oppressed special interest group at the pinnacle of the cultural Marxist caste system, and they are not it — as graduate philosophy student Alfred MacDonald discovered at University of Texas at San Antonio.

MacDonald committed the thought crime of complaining that being a bisexual could get him killed in 10 Muslim countries…

After that, he was called into the philosophy department chair [Eve Browning]’s office and told making that statement was “derogatory” and won’t “be tolerated” and essentially threatened him with administrative discipline, according to a recording of the conversation.

Browning’s approach to nurturing thought is not likely to produce any Aristotles. She threatened to turn MacDonald over to the Behavior Intervention Team, which could recommend his academic dismissal, and informed him that his comment about Islam would get him fired if he worked in her office.

“Would it really get me fired to say that I could be killed somewhere,” MacDonald asked.

The answer was “absolutely yes.”

MacDonald pleaded, “I’m just trying to understand the reasoning.”

“You don’t have to,” she said back.

“Well, this is a truthseeking discipline,” he retorted.

It used to be. Nowadays, as a division of academia, philosophy is a moonbattery-serving discipline.

Hate Hoaxer on San Francisco Subway

The San Francisco area is probably the last place you would look for white supremacists. Easier to find would be graffiti presumably meant to look like it was left by white supremacists:

BART [Bay Area Rapid Transit] police are looking for a man who drew offensive images on the floor at the San Francisco Embarcadero BART Station earlier this week, police said.

Police say he drew several swastikas and racial slurs on BART property.

A description is included, so that citizens can help police find him:

The suspect is seen wearing a Star Wars hoodie.

Fortunately, a picture is also included, on the off chance that the suspect has other clothes besides the hoodie. The picture won’t surprise anyone familiar with the Hate Hoax List.

Kevin Spacey Already Had a Reputation

The sudden outrage over sexual abuse in Tinseltown brings to mind Captain Renault gasping over the revelation that gambling has occurred at Rick’s Cafe in Casablanca. The term “casting couch” has been in common usage for decades, and everyone knew that Harvey Weinstein’s couch was put to heavy use. Likewise, Kevin Spacey’s perverted degeneracy was more or less an open secret, according to Rosie O’Donnell:

Rosie took to Twitter Monday to directly slam Spacey for not remembering an alleged attempt at molesting then-14-year-old Anthony Rapp … and she didn’t mince words.

She tweeted … “f*** u kevin – like Harvey we all new about u – I hope more men come forward @KevinSpacey.” Rosie added … “no one knew details – like harvey – but u knew both were creepy men with reps that said so.”

Spacey’s fellow Hollyweirdos have known for some time. This Family Guy clip is from 2005:

British Police Forsake Crime Fighting for Clowning

Even in moonbattery-addled Britain, people are getting fed up with the feminization, infantilization, and moonbattification of the police:

Officers were criticised for garishly painting their nails, posing for photos in bumper cars and stroking puppies for stress relief.

The nail painting was intended to raise awareness for human slavery. Officers who were subsequently ridiculed were encouraged to report this as a hate crime.

Some officers pose in bear masks — others in women’s shoes.

Yet [or more likely, consequently] shocking figures out this week showed that almost every type of crime is up, with knife offences alone rising by a quarter. Nine out of ten home burglaries are unsolved.

Retired senior Scotland Yard detective Mick Neville may have fingered the problem:

“Too many modern chief constables have got more degrees under their belts than arrests.”

But no doubt they are very good at community relations and staging awareness-raising publicity stunts.

Yale “Decolonizes” English Literature

College English departments are entrusted with the sacred duty of preserving our literary heritage. Instead, motivated far more by leftist politics than by a love of literature, they have been systematically destroying it, starting at the top.

Students circulated a petition demanding that Yale “decolonize the English department.” English majors having to study straight white males like Shakespeare is harmful, according to the petition, which barks:

“A year spent around a seminar table where the literary contributions of women, people of color, and queer folk are absent actively harms all students, regardless of their identity.”

The English faculty reacted to the petition the way educrats and professors nearly always react to juvenile, destructive, and outrageous demands from spoilt ultra-left students — with eager compliance. They voted to “diversify” the curriculum, i.e., base it largely on authors being nonwhite, female, or ostentatiously sexually perverted rather than on their meaningful contributions to English literature.

Now you can get an English degree from Ivy League Yale without reading a word of Shakespeare. This is the equivalent of getting a math degree without being able to do calculus — which would suit some educators fine.

Eventually, English literature will be reduced to rap lyrics. Education has become cultural vandalism.

Antifa Reportedly Teaming Up With Al Qaeda and ISIS

Your enemy’s enemy is not necessarily your friend. According to a report brought to light by Ed Klein, this lesson is among the many that have not been learned by militant moonbats, who share with Islamic groups an explosive hatred of Western Civilization:

‘There is clearly overwhelming evidence that there are growing ties between U.S. radicals and the Islamic State, as well as several [ISIS] offshoots and splinter groups,’ stated the FBI field report, which was delivered to Acting Director Andrew McCabe on July 11, 2017, and which is being published for the first time in my new book All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.

According to the report, an anarchist group from Oakland has met with al Qaeda in Hamburg and ISIS in Syria. The Antifa types hope to learn tactics and acquire the wherewithal for terrorist attacks featuring bombs and chemical weapons.

Islamists would chuck these stridently pro-perversion Black Bloc moonbats off of roofs eventually. But in the short term, anyone who might kill innocent people in the name of evil could be used as a cat’s paw — even “Resistance” clowns.

Parishioners Robert E. Lee and George Washington Both Erased From Historic Alexandria Church

The purpose of the War on History is to delegitimize the USA, because once America has stopped believing in itself, it can easily be destroyed. Progressives will have won this war when we no longer take pride in our greatest national hero, George Washington:

An historic Episcopal parish where George Washington frequently worshiped has decided to remove a memorial plaque honoring the nation’s first president, saying the decision was out of a desire to provide a “welcoming” worship space for all visitors. The church will also remove a similar memorial plague honoring Robert E. Lee, the commander of Confederate Army of Northern Virginia.

The vestry of Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia, announced its unanimous decision in an Oct. 26 letter, The Republican Standard website reported Thursday. The letter suggests that while initially the concern was over honoring the Confederate military leader, Washington’s slave ownership was a factor in the decision to remove his plaque as well.

The moonbats running the church imply that a plaque honoring the father of our country might make persons of politically preferred pigmentation feel “unsafe.” Presumably $1 bills make them feel unsafe too, so it is only a matter of time before liberals demand that we replace Washington’s portrait with someone more “inclusive.” Why not Michael Brown?

If Robert E. Lee is a thought criminal who deserves to be erased, so is George Washington. Follow the logic and you can see that America in general needs to be erased.

This is why every last plaque or statue honoring Washington, Lee, or anyone else targeted in the name of political correctness is worth fighting for as ferociously as we would fight amphibious troops from a hostile dictatorship landing on our shores.

How Kevin Spacey et al. Might Unwittingly Bring Back the Era of Watchable Movies

Actor Kevin Spacey is far too creepy for this to catch anyone by surprise:

[Actor Anthony] Rapp is publicly alleging for the first time that in 1986, Spacey befriended Rapp while they both performed on Broadway shows, invited Rapp over to his apartment for a party, and, at the end of the night, picked Rapp up, placed him on his bed, and climbed on top of him, making a sexual advance. According to public records, Spacey was 26. Rapp was 14.

Spacey neither confirms nor denies the episode, as if having indulged in similar behavior so frequently that he can’t remember particular incidents. He took the opportunity to proclaim himself gay.

Public membership in the politically privileged LGBT caste may insulate his career from damage — or it may not. Even in a time when many have been bullied and brainwashed into accepting perversion as normal, some vestigial morality survives when it comes to sexually abusing children.

Hollywood is characterized by degeneracy and depravity pushed to the last extreme in a desperate attempt to fill the vacuum of its own nihilistic self-indulgence. If Spacey falls as hard as his fellow left-winger Harvey Weinstein, he won’t be the last.

Ask Corey Feldman for details. This time Barbara Walters may not be able to defend the Tinseltown establishment.

Good thing the La Brea Tar Pits are nearby. Hollywood is ready to follow the dinosaurs. With luck, the demise of this increasingly grotesque and pernicious institution will open the way for more wholesome as well as more entertaining alternatives.

Remember when movies were driven by engaging plots, instead of consisting of remakes and sequels featuring tacky special effects, intrusive political correctness, annoying moonbat stars, and absurdly bloated budgets? After Tinseltown dies of rot, those days could come again.

Knee-Taking Hate Hoaxer Bruce Maxwell Arrested for Behaving Like Sociopathic Thug

The sort of athletes who refuse to refrain from disrespectful antics during the national anthem are not cut from the finest cloth. Neither are inductees on the Hate Hoax List. So the latest news on hate-hoaxing knee-taker Bruce Maxwell should come as no surprise:

Maxwell allegedly aimed a gun at a female delivery driver Saturday evening and was arrested for aggravated assault.

Maxwell was arrested shortly after 6 p.m. local time at his house in Scottsdale, Ariz., for the incident, according to TMZ.

Scottsdale? Maxwell fittingly plays for Oakland, the slum city that spawned the Black Panthers. Why doesn’t he reside there with his homies? Why does he want to live in a wealthy suburb full of the racist whites who inflict oppression upon him?

On top of the aggravated assault charge, Maxwell was also booked for disorderly conduct.

Maxwell is the first and so far as I know only Major Leaguer to refuse to stand for the anthem.

Sometimes a player takes one for the team; other times, it is up to the team to take one for the sport. The A’s need to cut this lowlife before he spreads the infection that has already destroyed football. Baseball has higher standards and needs to maintain them.

War on History Targets Teddy Roosevelt

No dead white male of significance is safe from the War on History — not even Teddy Roosevelt. From New York City:

Red paint was splashed at the statue of Theodore Roosevelt on the steps of the American Museum of Natural History early Thursday, according to cops. …

Activists last year called for the museum to take down the “racist” statue, calling it a “stark embodiment” of white supremacy that Roosevelt “espoused and promoted.” …

The museum recently agreed that “the statue needs to be addressed,” the [West Side Rag] reported. …

Roosevelt — the first president to invite and dine with an African-American, Booker T. Washington, in the White House — espoused a gradual approach to improving the country’s stark racial inequality.

He referred to white Americans as “the forward race,” whose responsibility it was to lift up the status of minorities by training “the backward race[s] in industrial efficiency, political capacity and domestic morality.”

That point of view is now retroactively forbidden.

Teddy Roosevelt was a Republican, but he was also America’s first progressive president. He put the still more progressive Woodrow Wilson in power by splitting the vote with his Progressive Party candidacy in 1912.

His progressive descendants will reward him by erasing him from history. They want to do the same to Wilson.
