North Korea’s Answer to Dancing With the Stars

This North Korean propaganda is on the level, honest. Try laughing at it in North Korea and you will be subjected to a horrible death, along with any of your relatives the Workers’ Party of Korea can get hold of:

How are we supposed to fight these people when we no longer have Michael Jackson?

Pick for Key Post Signals Resistance to Pope Francis

Attempts by Pope Francis to subvert the Catholic Church with leftist politics have encountered resistance:

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops chose a conservative archbishop for a key post Tuesday, signaling resistance to Pope Francis’s vision for the church among the Catholic hierarchy in the U.S.

Archbishop Joseph Naumann, of Kansas City, was elected chairman of the committee on Pro-Life Activities. In a vote of 96 to 82, he defeated Cardinal Blase Cupich, of Chicago, who is seen as a liberal in the church and a close ally of the pope.

The vote breaks a longstanding tradition of the position being held by a cardinal—an unusual lapse of deference in a highly rank-conscious body—and suggests that Catholic leaders in the U.S. remain largely resistant to the changes Pope Francis is trying to bring to the church.

Naumann plans to keep the Pro-Life Activities committee focused on pro-life activities. Cupich wanted to follow Pope Francis off into moonbattery by diverting attention to liberal causes.

Francis can console himself that American bishops are on his page when it comes to the never-ending flow of illegal immigrants and so-called refugees. Many of the former are at least nominally Catholic.

Other churches (e.g., the Church of England) have been hollowed out and have had their insides replaced with sheer moonbattery, ensuring that they will not be around for long, since leftist political organizations make them redundant. Hopefully, resistance to Pope Francis and his progressive agenda will prevent the same from happening to the Catholic Church.

Newsweek Shrieks in Horror That Climate Change Allegedly Makes Urban Trees Grow Faster

Actual headline from the joke that calls itself Newsweek:


If you haven’t succumbed to panic yet, maybe this will do the trick.

It isn’t just warm weather that makes trees grow. Carbon dioxide does too. Whether CO2 makes the weather any warmer is debatable.

Less debatable is that global warming hoaxers have long since jumped the shark. When you start off by demanding that people surrender their wealth and freedom lest the weather improve, and then get nuttier from there, it is only a matter of time before you find yourself tearing out clots of hair as you shriek in horror that insufficient taxation causes urban trees to grow too fast.

Illegal Immigrants Placed Before American Kids, Forcing Preschool to Close

Basic laws exist as to what is right and what makes sense. Indulging in moonbattery entails rejecting these laws so as to posture on behalf of a deranged ideology. This has consequences:

A preschool that leases space from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder is shutting down at the end of the month after the church congregation voted to become a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants facing deportation.

“It put us out of business,” said Active Boulder Kids owner Kristen Argow Heaton.

The presumably far-left Unitarian congregation voted overwhelmingly to convert part of the building into illegal immigrant living quarters.

Argow Heaton said that parents notified the church ahead of the vote that they had safety concerns, and those concerns were not addressed, prompting more than half of the 22 children who attend the preschool to be withdrawn.

Explained one parent,

“My worry, and I felt like no one articulated this, the church is doing civil disobedience and there is nothing legal about it. If that’s a risk the church wants to take, that’s fine, but they are roping our kids into it. I feel like that was unacceptable.”

Equally unacceptable is the liberal approach to massive Third World immigration in general, because kids will have to grow up in an America that isn’t America anymore, their birthright having been squandered on bogus virtue signaling.

Wisconsin College Democrats Vice Chair: “I F***ing Hate White Men”

At least increasingly radicalized Democrats are sometimes straightforward about where they are coming from:

The Wisconsin College Democrats Vice Chair lashed out against “white men” last week, tweeting that she feels emphatic hatred toward the demographic.

No doubt she hates white men because they are all racist and sexist, according to her militantly tolerant antiracist, antisexist ideology.

According to the images obtained by Campus Reform, Sarah Semrad, a junior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, allegedly wrote that “I f***ing hate white men” in a tweet on Thursday.

Even now, there is still some backlash to statements like this, which caused her to delete her Twitter account. But the Internet is forever.

Another image of her Twitter profile obtained by Campus Reform appears to show Semrad admitting to “tearing down all the pro life Christian pregnancy resource center fliers” that were posted on campus.

She will go far in what the Democrat Party is becoming.

Venezuela Staggers Toward Default

Recently, Venezuela was the wealthiest country in South America, largely because it is afloat on a sea of black gold. Then came socialism. Now it demonstrates why you do not lend money to socialists:

On Monday Caracas missed interest payments due on two government bonds and one bond issued by the state-owned oil monopoly known by its Spanish initials PdVSA. Venezuela owed creditors $280 million, which it couldn’t manage even after a 30-day grace period.

Venezuela can’t pay its debts because it is broke. Here’s where all the money went:

[I]n 2005 the socialist Hugo Chávez declared that the central bank had “excessive reserves.” He mandated that the executive take the excess from the bank without compensation. Today the central bank has at best $1 billion in reserves.

Remember when Barack Obama proclaimed that “at a certain point you’ve made enough money”? Venezuela presents the results of letting ham-fisted ideologues determine what is enough money.

Faced with expropriation, hyperinflation, price controls and rampant corruption, human and monetary capital has fled Venezuela.

The country has not been officially declared in default, but it won’t be long. Restructuring the debt won’t work, because it requires the economy to grow again, which will never happen with Big Government affixed to it like a facehugger from the Alien movies.

Venezuela is what Bernie Sanders supporters want to reduce America to. They are becoming the base of the radicalized Democrat Party.

Hate-Hoaxing Oberlin College Gets Sued

The execrable SJW incubator Oberlin College has made the Hate Hoax List before (see here and here). This time, it may have to pay a price.

Readers may recall that Gibson’s Bakery in Oberlin, Ohio refused to let shoplifting, destruction of merchandise, and assault slide on the grounds that the primary perpetrator was a person of politically preferred pigmentation. Ideologically insane Oberlin College responded by attacking the small business for being racist.

Now we read this:

Oberlin College and its vice president have been accused of libel and slander by a local bakery, the owners of which allege in a suit that administrators supported students in an unfounded campaign to paint the establishment’s owners as racist. …

The complaint comes a year after Oberlin College students held a massive protest in front of Gibson’s Food Mart and Bakery, in response to three of their peers being arrested and charged with shoplifting.

One of the assistant shoplifters is white. All publicly announced as part of a plea deal that there was nothing racist about expecting them to obey the law. But that isn’t good enough for Oberlin, which apparently has been trying to drive the bakery out of business, possibly to acquire a parking lot.

The jackpot justice system usually serves moonbats well. Maybe not this time:

Oberlin College enjoys an endowment of over $800 million, or almost $300,000 per student, which will sound mighty impressive to a jury in Lorain County, Ohio, population 300,000, 85% white, and as hard hit by deindustrialization as anyplace one could find. Oberlin pegs the cost of attending it at just under $68,000 per year.

( puts it at $68,670 per year, including $51,324 for tuition alone. What a racket.)

That compares to the per capita income in Lorain County of $25,000 per year. Oberlin’s per capita endowment is 14 times the average income of the county in which it lives. I am not sure that the social justice warrior impulses of the coddled students at Oberlin will pull on the heartstrings of jurors who formerly worked at one of the impressive list of closed factories in the county.

The Gibsons might be in for a bonanza.

CNN Moonbat: Wanting Our Culture to Exist Is Racist

Do you want your culture to survive? Then you are a racist and a white supremacist. So barks CNN political commentator and former Bernie Sanders national press secretary Symone Sanders:

Thanks are due to Ms. Sanders for clarifying the issue. Only by embracing the eradication of the culture that produced Aristotle, Shakespeare, da Vinci, Madison, Beethoven, Einstein, Edison, the Wright Brothers, et al. can you escape the charge of racism.

Kathy Griffin Officially Retracts Apology for Severed Head Publicity Stunt

Remember when unfunny harpy Kathy Griffin blew her career up by posing like an ISIS terrorist with a prop meant to resemble Donald Trump’s severed head? She “sincerely” apologized. Then, she effectively retracted her apology by painting herself as somehow the victim. Now, she retracts the apology some more:

Griffin … told BBC Hardtalk’s Stephen Sackur she is “not sorry” and “takes back 1,000%” the apology she made in the immediate aftermath.

No doubt the retraction, like the severed head stunt, is a desperate attempt to remind people that she exists. Since her tasteless existence proves my point about moonbats, I’m glad to help her out.

Barbie in a Hijab

It isn’t just the moonbattery-infested education establishment. Even toymakers want to condition children to embrace Islam:

Mattel (MAT), which makes Barbie, announced Monday that the latest doll in its “Shero” collection will be modeled after Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad. In 2016, Muhammad became the first American to compete in the games while wearing a hijab.

Here Muhammad poses with an 11½-inch victory for the hostile cult that has inspired over 32,000 lethal terror attacks since September 11, 2001:

It is unlikely that demand from children drove the decision to manufacture this doll. Rather, it is a product of sheer Islamophile moonbattery.

Next will come a Ken doll wearing a cloth on his head and a shirt down to his knees, complete with a whip to keep the Ibtihaj Muhammad doll in line. Already P.C. Ken is “available in three body types and seven skin tones.”

White Guy Identifies as Filipino Woman

According to modern liberal dogma, reality is optional, if not downright discriminatory. Just because you are a white guy doesn’t mean you can’t identify as a Filipino woman:

Ja Du, born a white male named Adam, now considers himself a Filipino.

He even drives what he calls a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines. …

He is also transsexual and is considering changing his gender as well. He has spoken to his mom and family about that.

The USA Today report brings out local psychologist Stacey Schreckner to dutifully opine that there is nothing wrong with some guy from Tampa deciding he is a Filipino woman:

“If that’s who they are and they want to celebrate it and enjoy it, then you have to think: What harm is it doing?”

The point is that it is not what they are. But from the moonbat point of view, reality is subjective and highly malleable.

Please welcome Ja Du, if that’s what he wants to call himself, to the racial imposter list:

Ja Du
Joshua Marcus
Philip and Paul Malone
Jeb Bush
Susan Taffe Reed
Michael Derrick Hudson/Yi-Fen Chou
Shaun King
Andrea Smith
Rachel Dolezal
Vijay Chokal-Ingam
Elizabeth Warren
Ward Churchill

However, if you choose to believe that Bruce Jenner is a woman and Shaun King is black, then Du is in fact a Filipino woman.

Ja Du makes his case for being a Filipino woman.

British School Instructs 12-Year-Olds to Write Letter Explaining Conversion to Islam

The P.C. dhimmis in charge of education in Britain are so eager to embrace a Muslim future, they have assigned kids to give reasons for converting to Islam — enraging their parents:

A furious stepfather has refused to let his 12-year-old stepdaughter finish her homework after she was asked to write a letter to her family about becoming a Muslim.

Mark McLachlan, 43, from Houghton-le-Spring, near Sunderland, has slammed the decision by the Kepier School to ask pupils to pen the note.

Fumed McLachlan,

‘If they want children to learn about Islam, then go teach them all about it and its history.

‘What I don’t want is a school asking my stepdaughter to look into reasons for converting to another religion.’

A little history on the Kepier School:

The school was built and endowed in 1574 by Bernard Gilpin, an influential clergyman who became known as the ‘Apostle of the North’ and was associated with Houghton-le-Spring.

Gilpin probably would not have been happy to see his school instructing students to come up with reasons for converting to Islam. Then again, maybe he would be pleased that it lasted for so long before it was subverted. Most everything that moonbats are currently destroying has been around for many generations.

Flakka: As if It Weren’t Already Crazy Enough Out There

Only one thing could be crazier than a moonbat: a moonbat on flakka. From Sullivan, Missouri:

Four people went on a rampage, barking and yelling, breaking into buildings, even stripping off their clothes and showering in soda water, police say. [Police] suspect the synthetic drug flakka is behind the behavior.

Barking is apparently a common symptom of both moonbattery and flakka use. Other symptoms are less benign:

In one highly publicized Florida case, a man reportedly high on flakka gnawed on and disfigured another man’s face before he was shot to death by police. Another user tried to break down the door of a police station in Fort Lauderdale, and a few weeks later, a man impaled himself while trying to climb a fence around the same station.

“If it feels good, do it,” the hippies used to say. By now people are starting to figure out that what might feel good at first doesn’t necessarily feel good for long.

Moonbat Cuisine

Moonbats live in their own world, so it should come as no surprise that they have their own cuisine. A food blogger at Cosmopolitan describes how he cooked his wife’s placenta:

My mom simmered water in a pot. Into it went slices of placenta (about 2 ounces), freshly cut ginger to warm and soothe the body, a pinch of salt, a drizzle of sesame oil for more flavor, and rice wine. Once the placenta changed color from dark red to dark brown, the soup was done.

How did it taste?

It was like beef, only very delicate; soft notes that suitably matched its gentle textures.

Yum yum.

There are other ways to eat afterbirth, including

topping bits of it on pizza or working it into bolognese sauce — both recipes I’d read online back in 2006. Lots of women like to toss a frozen chunk of placenta into a fruit smoothie. Some chefs I talked to suggested that I make placenta polenta. Another fine dining chef said to create a charcuterie item.

Visit Women’s Health for a list of placenta recipes.

A suitable side dish with placenta is bread made using a feminist’s vaginal yeast.

If it’s disgusting, moonbats will embrace it and possibly even eat it. Given time, they will mandate it.
