Witches to Cast Spell on Donald Trump

calling-all-witches

Moonbats have a busy evening ahead of them. Running the corrupt and incompetent Shrillary Rotten didn’t work out, so tonight they will fall back on casting spells:

Starting at midnight on Friday, witches around the country are calling for a mass spell to be cast on Donald Trump every night of a waning crescent moon until he’s driven from office.

The spell was publicized by Michael M. Hughes, who told ELLE.com that it was tweaked from multiple spells he saw going around private witchcraft groups. He published it on Extra News Feed because he felt “it would be very welcome to a lot of people.” It quickly spread, with events being formed around the country and support on social media.

Details of the ritual are described here. Make sure to check out the Fakebook page tomorrow to see if the moonbats have posted laugh-worthy photos of their antics.

The Party of Science strikes again.

Campus Speech Codes Silence Everyone

People support authoritarian measures because they mistakenly believe they will be the one wearing the boot stamping a human face. In reality, someone else wears the boot. That’s why when free speech dies, everyone suffers. The Washington Examiner’s Adam Steinbaugh reports on campus complaints of offensive speech:

I surveyed more than 230 such reporting systems for the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education and asked dozens of schools for records about their Bias Response Teams. What I found is detailed in a new report describing how universities broadly define “bias” to include virtually any speech, protected or not, that subjectively offends anyone. …

The threat to expressive rights isn’t confined to speech from the Left or the Right. Bias reporting systems are being used to report all kinds of speech.

At Appalachian State University, students reported on one another for chalked messages that were pro-Trump as well as chalked messages calling Trump a “RACIST.” The former were reported by students as “hate speech,” the latter “politically biased slander” that was “unlawful.”

While students at Ohio State University reported each other for comparing Hillary Clinton to Hitler, students at Texas Tech were whispering to administrators that the Black Student Union’s tweets in support of the Black Lives Matter movement offended them. Meanwhile, the University of Oregon saw it fit to dictate “community expectations” to students who had the audacity to complain about oppression.

Yes, complaining about oppression may bring the Bias Response Team to your dorm room to explain why your views were insufficiently polite, decent, and non-controversial.

Going to college these days must be like enduring one of those excruciating social situations where if you make any comment more meaningful than weather observations, you will be treated like you let rip with a robust air biscuit.

Free speech is either for everyone, or it is for no one.

Dana Bash Catches Keith Ellison in Brazen Lie Regarding Second Amendment

Even an ultra-radical like the barking Islamomoonbat Keith Ellison will try to pass himself off as moderate when vying for an important position like Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. In the video below, he blatantly lies to Dana Bash regarding his stated hostility to the Second Amendment — and gets skewered on his own words:

Muslim Leader Says Beating Women Is a Last Resort

Apologies to the Islamic faith. I didn’t realize that it has been treating women worse than dogs only as a last resort:

A senior Muslim leader has said using violence against women is a “last resort” for men.

President of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils Keysar Trad described beating women as “step three” in a process of dealing with issues in relationships, after counselling and buying chocolates or “taking her out on a dinner”.

Trad is annoyed that Australia won’t let him take a second wife, even though it is allowed by sharia law, which unsurprisingly he advocates.

Meanwhile, we are told that Islam can be reconciled with feminism.

Moonbat Sheriff Releases 400 Criminal Illegal Aliens Into Phoenix Every 10 Days

I am missing Sheriff Joe more every day, thanks to his George Soros–backed replacement Paul Penzone:

An average of 400 “criminal illegal immigrants” are being released every 10 days by the newly elected sheriff in Arizona’s most populous county, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch, many of them violent offenders. It’s part of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy to protect illegal aliens, even those who have committed serious state crimes, from deportation. Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the Phoenix field office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail, which is one of the nation’s largest with a population of about 8,000. That ended when Penzone, who refers to illegal immigrants as “guests,” took office this year and, though he formally announced the change last week, it was put into practice much earlier. …

Before the new sheriff changed the system, ICE would send a wagon every 12 hours to pick up criminal illegal aliens scheduled to be released from the main jail in Maricopa County. Under the new policy, Maricopa County officials are not giving ICE “any notification at all of the release of criminal illegals,” according to an agency official in Phoenix who’s not authorized to talk and can’t be identified. Without cooperation from county authorities, federal agents would have to stand at the door to the jail 24 hours a day and guess which prisoner should be deported, sources said.

Since that is not feasible, the criminal illegal aliens run free to wreak havoc.

If Penzone is not violating federal law with this behavior, then Congress needs to pass a new law, pronto.

Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters Are Leaving Behind Big Mess

We are to believe that the leftist hooligans who have been squatting on federal land in North Dakota for the past 6 months to stall the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline care about the environment. I hope the polar bears don’t mind their carbon emissions:

dapl_fire

At least this time they are only burning their wooden hovels, rather than tires, like they did earlier to block Highway 1806:

dapl-burn-tires

From USA Today:

Most of the protesters left the encampment near Cannon Ball, N.D., by Wednesday’s deadline. Ten were arrested and up to 50 remaining demonstrators must leave Thursday, Burgum said.

Remnants of the camp went up in flames Wednesday when protesters set fire to wooden housing as part of a departure ceremony. About 20 fires were set and two people, a 7-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl, suffered burns. …

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers set the Wednesday deadline, citing the threat of spring flooding.

The flooding is a problem because it could wash garbage and sewage from the moonbat encampment into Lake Oahe, which the protesters are supposedly keeping pristine by not letting any grownups run a pipeline under it.

Authorities sent buses to take protesters to the North Dakota capital of Bismarck, where they were offered fresh clothing, bus fare and food and hotel vouchers.

Courtesy of you, Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer. This is on top of the $33 million state and local taxpayers have spent to keep this carnival under control. Plus we are paying the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to clean up hippies’ garbage.

New York Times: To Hell With Working Class Whites

This may be good news for the GOP, but it is bad news for the country. To judge by its flagship publication, liberals learned nothing from the 2016 election, and plan to escalate their extreme moonbattery, writing off whites as largely irrelevant as they pin their hopes on demographic Third Worldization, and positioning the Democrat Party ever more clearly as the party that takes from whites to give to non-whites. This recent New York Times op-ed is alarming:

The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. Hundreds of articles have been written about the imperative of attracting more support from white working-class voters who supported Barack Obama in 2012 but then bolted to back Donald J. Trump.

The far more important — and largely untold — story of the election is that more Obama voters defected to third- and fourth-party candidates than the number who supported Mr. Trump. That is the white flight that should most concern the next D.N.C. chairman, because those voters make up a more promising way to reclaim the White House. The way to win them back is by being more progressive, not less.

To hell with the white working class. Dems just need to get people with hammer & sickle stickers on their Priuses to stop voting for Jill Stein and everything will be rosy — thanks to the ever-growing non-white population.

Whites who voted for both Obama and Trump are sneeringly dismissed as “conservative whites.”

After the election, people laughed at Shrillary for trying to compete in Arizona and Georgia, which she lost anyway, while ignoring the Rust Belt, which was crucial to Trump’s victory. The NY Times advises doubling down on this failed strategy.

The electoral action for Democrats may have once been in the Rust Belt, but it’s now moving west and south.

The editorial fervently endorses the ultra-radical Keith Ellison for Chairman of the DNC. If voters in Arizona and Georgia didn’t go for Shrillary, they are not going for an even further-left party guided by this Nation of Islam alumnus with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. But the Times likes him because he rallies the ultra-left base.

Nice as it is to see liberals consign themselves to electoral oblivion, the long-term effect of the Democrat Party going completely off the rails is not likely to be positive. If the swinging pendulum puts them back in power, we will follow Venezuela down the tubes.

University of Michigan Student Group Demands White-Free Space for Plotting Social Justice

Imagine a student KKK group demanding a special space on campus where no blacks are allowed, so it could scheme against blacks without them learning what it is up to. Outrageous, right? Yet we barely bat an eye at this:

A student activist group at the University of Michigan [Students4Justice] is demanding campus officials provide them with “a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.”

In this context, “social justice” means “racial revenge.”

The clamor for a segregated space for students of color to organize social justice efforts comes even as the public university builds a $10 million center for black students in the center of campus.

But as we know by now, way too much is never enough to satisfy campus moonbats, who have learned that the more belligerently they bellow their outlandish demands, the more obsequiously these demands will be granted by fellow-traveling educrats.

In their demands, students explain why the new black student center is not enough, “because we want a space solely dedicated to community organizing and social justice work specifically for people of color.”

If I didn’t know better, I would think that was racist. Isn’t it the worst thing in the world to be racist?

Gasps The Michigan Review:

The same organization that criticizes the University for failing to create “an environment that engages in diversity, equity and inclusion,” is calling upon the University to undermine these ideals by facilitating a sort of de facto segregation? One where space and resources are designated for students based solely on the color of their skin?

Other demands by Students4Justice include more race-based faculty hiring.

This idiocy would end quickly if universities would discard Affirmative Action and only accept students with the aptitude and motivation to learn, rather than fritter away their time behaving like hooligans.

Looks like Students4Justice is on board with the transsexual agenda.

Marketing the Corruption of Children: Transgender Jazz Jennings Doll

Moonbattery.com readers were first introduced to Jazz Jennings after his parents had made him into a trophy transsexual in kindergarten. This paid off for all involved with a reality television show. Now Jazz is a product for purchase:

Jazz Jennings, the first reality television transgender activist, is now the world’s “first transgender doll.”

The Tonner Doll Company unveiled their “Jazz” doll, complete with feminine hair and makeup, to the market this week, and, across the country, parents of particularly woke children rejoiced, as they no longer had to stomach the hetero-normative gender binary when choosing toys.

Let’s hope the Jazz doll is not anatomically correct. The “real” Jazz has not yet undergone sexual mutilation a.k.a. “gender confirmation” surgery.

[His] parents told the media that Jazz “came out” to the public on [his] 5th birthday, when [he] wore a one-piece girl’s bathing suit to [his] party.

Ever since, they have promoted their pawn relentlessly, with the eager help of the depraved media establishment. Young Jazz has published a memoir on his life as a transgender teen, and has been interviewed by Katie Couric and Oprah Winfrey.

The Tonner Doll company, which makes collectible dolls for adults, is sculpting the doll based on Jazz’s appearance along with the pink shirt and jean shorts Jazz sports on her memoir. It debuted at the New York Toy Fair this past weekend. A variation of the doll sports a sparkling white ballerina dress. …

Unlike with its other dolls, Tonner intends to market the transgender doll to children, starting in July.

It is appropriate that a doll would be based on Jazz, who himself is in effect a doll dressed by his parents as an indulgence in make-believe. The toy will serve the same purpose he does: to advance a social engineering agenda so sick that prior (and hopefully future) generations would find it incomprehensible.

School Bases Composer Selection on Not Being White

When is racism not racism? When it is racism in favor of the politically preferred:

There’s a bulletin board at the front of the band room at Spring Lake Park High covered in portraits of the composers who wrote this year’s music selection.

The bulletin board isn’t new — it’s there every year. What’s new are the faces: Instead of primarily white men, there are faces of women and composers of color.

This is intentional. The band directors at Spring Lake Park, outside of St. Paul, Minn., have pledged to include at least one piece by a female composer and one by a composer of color in each concert, for each of the school’s bands.

“We made a commitment this year to only buy music from composers of color,” says Brian Lukkasson, one of the directors.

Anyone who actually believes that discrimination works against “marginalized” groups rather than in their favor is invited to imagine how long Lukkasson would keep his job if he said he would buy music only from white composers.

[Student Kia] Muleta, who is black, has been playing the clarinet … since fifth grade, and says the students sitting around her are usually white. She says it bothers her that the composers they used to play were usually white too.

Yet she does not take her clarinet to a country where blacks make up more than 13% of the population. I wonder why.

Selecting composers based on their not being white will have a predictable effect on the quality of music.

Candice Wiggins: Bullied Out of the WNBA for Being Heterosexual

Despite all the hoaxes, people really do get bullied for their sexual preference. An example is Candice Wiggins, a star player who has had enough and is leaving the WNBA:

She was the No. 3 overall draft pick out of Stanford in 2008. She was named the league’s Sixth Woman of the Year as a rookie. She won a championship with the Minnesota Lynx.

The success, Wiggins says now, hid a darker reality.

She has abruptly announced her retirement, despite having just turned only 30 — largely because she is sick of being targeted for harassment for being heterosexual.

“Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge,” Wiggins said. “I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. …

“People were deliberately trying to hurt me all of the time. I had never been called the B-word so many times in my life than I was in my rookie season. I’d never been thrown to the ground so much. The message was: ‘We want you to know we don’t like you.’ …

“So many people think you have to look like a man, play like a man to get respect. I was the opposite. I was proud to a be a woman, and it didn’t fit well in that culture.”

Now Wiggins wants to play beach volleyball instead.

She touts the sport’s camaraderie and its “celebration of women and the female body as feminine, but strong and athletic.”

No one watches the WNBA anyway, although liberals seem to support it in theory. It stays alive because it is subsidized by the moonbats running the NBA.

Aurora University’s Cultural Marxist Scavenger Hunt

When they say that they want us to give up our “privilege,” they mean our culture, our identity, our very existence. For example, consider the college brainwashing exercise entitled “Experiencing Discrimination—The ‘Scavenger Hunt,'” recently imposed at Aurora University in the course “Social and Applied Psychology” by Professor Renae Franiuk:

The assignment asked students to scour a local shopping mall or “Big Box” store for “examples of dominant group privilege” in children’s toys, greeting cards, hair care products, and more in order to “illustrate the everyday difficulties that people in marginalized groups may encounter when they do something as simple as shopping.”

“Find as many of the following items in the store/mall as you can,” the assignment prompts students, first asking them to look for “a Barbie or Ken doll that is not white” and to “note the approximate [percentage] of dolls meeting this requirement.”

Similarly, the assignment requires students to search for “a picture frame containing a ‘filler picture’ of an African American, East Asian, South Asian, Latino/a person, inter-racial couple, or same-sex couple” and again “note the approximate [percentage] of pictures meeting this requirement.”

Coming from cultural Marxists engaged in their form of ethnic cleansing, the word “requirement” has an ominous feel to it.

Why do you suppose that a country created by and mainly populated by Europeans and their descendants would produce more Caucasian than Chinese or African Barbie dolls? If you are trying to pass a college course, the correct answer is RACISM.

A more difficult question is: Why do our institutions of higher learning go to such lengths to instill a sense of shame over the fact that we exist?

Enema Art

The upside of moonbattery having vanquished the art world is that talent is no longer necessary or even desirable. This makes artistic recognition far more inclusive. On the downside, artists need to be ever more outrageously transgressive in order to attract attention, which gets harder all the time. The current state of the art was on display at the AvantGarden in Houston:

Still in shock over a performance from days ago, [owner Mariana] Lemesoff said there’s now one band in town permanently banned from her place.

The incident happened last Friday during a cancer fundraising event when Lemesoff says Sonic Rabbit Hole, a pair of performance artists, took the stage and one attempted to give the other an enema.

“Everybody at that point was really shocked and then he proceeded to defecate on the stage and splatter feces everywhere,” Lemesoff said.

Shrugs Michael Clemmons of Sonic Rabbit Hole,

“What I did is not all that out-there. This is nothing, literally. I don’t understand why I’m getting the attention for this.”

Maybe because Houston isn’t New York yet, thankfully.

Terrorist Freed From Gitmo and Handed £1 Million in Compensation Commits Suicide Bombing for Islamic State

Jamal Udeen al-Harith illustrates as well as anyone just how crazy things get when liberals are left in charge:

Jamal Udeen al-Harith, 50, is understood to have detonated a suicide bomb in an ISIS attack on an army base near Mosul earlier this week.

The Manchester-born Muslim convert – who changed his name from Ronald Fiddler in 1994 – had been suspected of terrorism after being caught by US forces in Afghanistan in 2001.

But he was freed from Guantanamo Bay in 2004 after Tony Blair’s government lobbied for his release, claiming he posed no threat.

The bomber then launched a compensation bid, claiming MI6 was complicit in his mistreatment by the Americans, and was handed £1million to stay silent.

That is, the British government settled out of court, paying him and two other terrorists £1 million apiece for having been oppressed by infidels.

[H]is brother Leon Jameson confirmed that an image released by ISIS was al-Harith.

The photograph shows him smiling, dressed in camouflage clothing and appearing to be [sitting] in a vehicle with wires and switches in the background.

This must be the picture:

Jamal-Udeen-al-Harith

If he doesn’t look much like a Briton, that is because his parents were immigrants from Jamaica.

[T]he grinning extremist was filmed speeding toward an Iraqi army base in Mosul, in a truck laden with explosives. The video then cuts to a plume of smoke in the distance.

After the attack – which came during a raging battle for control of the city – the ISIS propaganda department released the chilling video, praising the jihadist for causing multiple casualties in his act of ‘martyrdom’.

Let a terrorist out of Gitmo, give him $1,247,335 of other people’s money, and this is exactly the thanks you can expect and deserve.
