California Department of Transportation Builds a Wall in San Jose

Even in liberal California, a state agency finds that walls have their uses:

Caltrans is building a taller, stronger wall in San Jose to stop homeless individuals from returning to an encampment.

Caltrans has repeatedly cleaned up the large encampment under I-280, but the homeless keep returning.

Hopefully the new wall helps.

Laura Nunez, who has lived on Macredes Avenue in San Jose most of her life, said everything changed on her street when homeless people began using the rickety chain link fence at the end of the block as a doorway to their encampments along I-280.

“Every time Caltrans would come out and repair it…as soon as they left they cut a hole in it and they just use that…that was their main access point to go in and out,” said Nunez. “We’ve had to live with their garbage. We’ve had to live with drug paraphernalia. The kids haven’t been able come out to play.”

Caltrans and the city heard the neighbors’ complaints and on Monday, workers were out building a taller barrier at the freeway on-ramp and on Macredes Avenue.

At last government is responsive to the needs of the people. Yet moonbats are not pleased.

Jaime Foberg, the founder of “In Their Shoes” homeless advocacy said, “I think of Trump. And I think how horrible it is that they would keep people out. It really does make me sad.”

Trump, as some may recall, was elected on solemn promises to build a border wall that would render walls like the one is San Jose less necessary. Obviously, there is no need for us to import unskilled poor people. Too bad the promise was quickly discarded.

College Professor Calls Whites “Inhuman ***holes,” Wanted Alexandria Victims Left to Die

You have to cough up extravagant tuition fees to hear what liberal professors say behind the closed doors of their classrooms. Campus Reform reports on what Professor Johnny Eric Williams barks to the general public:

A professor at Connecticut’s Trinity College seemingly endorsed the idea that first responders to last week’s congressional shooting should have let the victims “f***ing die” because they are white.

“It is past time for the racially oppressed to do what people who believe themselves to be ‘white’ will not do, put end to the vectors of their destructive mythology of whiteness and their white supremacy system. #LetThemF***ingDie,” Trinity College Professor Johnny Eric Williams wrote in a June 18 Facebook post.

Two days prior, Williams had shared a Medium article titled “Let Them F***ing Die” in which the anonymous author suggests that “bigots,” such as those numbered among the victims of the congressional shooting, should be left for dead.

According to the article, white people who are not homosexuals and “who practice bigotry (or do not believe they practice bigotry even when they do)” [i.e., all heterosexual white people, per leftist dogma] should be left to die whenever possible. This evidently passes for profundity among the deep thinkers of academia.

It is the university system invented by whites and lavishly financed mainly by whites that allows Williams to live in the splendor of a socialist dictator by the standards of his African brethren, without offering society anything but venom in return.

We might want to rethink our policy of paying useless parasites excessive salaries to fill young people’s heads with toxic moonbattery.

Antifa Anarchists Explain Themselves

Bernie Sanders fanatic James Hodgkinson is hardly the only moonbat drawn to violence. Antifa anarchists openly encourage it as a political tactic. Their objectives are spelled out by their flagship website, It’s Going Down:

Anarchists are those who would set fire to a bulldozer or a new luxury home rather than let a forest be cut down, who would rather hear the sound of shattering glass than a politician’s speech. Deserting and disobeying all the rules written against us, by squatting and stealing for our survival, and rejecting the roles we’re assigned, as good worker, good student, good citizen, good woman or man. Rewriting the usual endings; by supporting prisoners rather than letting them disappear in isolation, by beating up rapists and homophobes rather than suffering their violence, by creating forms of love that only strengthen us rather than containing and limiting us. Taking control over our surroundings by painting graffiti on the walls or occupying space and planting gardens. By arming ourselves with the ability to create a new world and destroy the one that has been imposed on us.

That is, they want to use violence against normal people and their property in order to destroy civilization as we know it.

We are past policy issues where reasonable people can disagree. The farther you go out on the left, the more obvious the underlying malice and insanity become — and lately radicals have been wresting control of the wheel from the liberal establishment, as the success of Bernie Sanders attests.

The same site offers some insight into why promoting all things queer is so important to leftists. It’s about more than spreading diseases through perverted sex:

Some will read “queer” as synonymous with “gay and lesbian” or “LGBT”. This reading falls short. While those who would fit within the constructions of “L”, “G”, “B” or “T” could fall within the discursive limits of queer, queer is not a stable area to inhabit. Queer is not merely another identity that can be tacked onto a list of neat social categories, nor the quantitative sum of our identities. Rather, it is the qualitative position of opposition to presentations of stability – an identity that problematizes the manageable limits of identity. Queer is a territory of tension, defined against the dominant narrative of white-hetero-monogamous patriarchy, but also by an affinity with all who are marginalized, otherized and oppressed. Queer is the abnormal, the strange, the dangerous. Queer involves our sexuality and our gender, but so much more. It is our desire and fantasies and more still. Queer is the cohesion of everything in conflict with the heterosexual capitalist world. Queer is a total rejection of the regime of the Normal.

If you are functioning as a normal, decent, productive human being — even if you are liberal in your views — these militant freaks at the vanguard of progressivism hate you for it. Violence is their preferred method of expressing that hatred.

Canadian Woman Demands White Doctor Who Speaks English and Doesn’t Have Brown Teeth

The socially engineered browning of Canada has had its effect on the healthcare system. Some are not pleased with the result — including a woman who just volunteered herself for the liberal media’s version of the Two Minutes Hate:

A Mississauga, Ont., man is stunned after witnessing and filming a woman make several demands for a “white doctor” who “doesn’t have brown teeth” and “speaks English” at his local walk-in clinic on Sunday.

Hitesh Bhardwaj recorded the incident while waiting for his own appointment at Rapid Access to Medical Specialists in Mississauga, Ont. He shared his video with CBC News.

Over the course of four minutes of video, a woman asks clinic staff several times for a “white doctor” to treat her son who she says has chest pains. When staff tell her that no such doctor is available, the woman gets angry and at one point says “being white in this country I should just shoot myself.”

No doubt CBC News agrees.

“I saw a doctor that was not white that did not help my kid,” says the woman in the video. “I would like to see a white doctor. You’re telling me there isn’t one white doctor in this whole entire building?”

The woman behaved obnoxiously. No doubt there are many qualified health professionals in Canada who are not Caucasian, as there are in the USA.

On the other hand, some are likely to advance in their medical careers due not as much to their competence as to their politically preferred non-white skin. Also, those who earn their degrees in the Third World probably did not get the quality of education we expect of doctors in the West.

People have legitimate concerns, especially when their children’s health is involved. Shouting that they have to shut up or be clubbed with the word “racist” will only cause resentments to fester.

Merit and Not Being Racist Are Microaggressions

To avoid committing microaggressions, people need to understand just what a microaggression is. The best definition may be, “Anything that undermines liberal dogma.” For example, liberals view most everything through the prism of race. Therefore, color blindness is a microaggression. Progressives believe that rewards should be distributed not in accordance with achievement, but according to race, sexual deviancy, affiliation with Islam, or illegal alien status. Therefore, merit is a microaggression. Rowan University has helped codify this in a new guide:

The guide—which is available on the website for the Rowan University Bias Assessment & Response Team (BART) along with several other resources billed as “tips to stop bias”—lists various examples of “microaggressions,” then provides suggestions for “Third Party Intervention” approaches, followed by more-detailed explanations under the heading of “Communication Approach.”

Under the heading “Myth of Meritocracy,” for instance, the document asserts that saying “Everyone can succeed in this country, if they work hard enough” constitutes a microaggression…

“Everyone can succeed in this country, if they snivel belligerently enough,” is how it actually works nowadays.

The guide also lists several examples of microaggressions based on “Color Blindness,” listing statements such as “I don’t believe in race” and “When I look at you, I don’t see color” as offensive comments.

So much for that content of character stuff. Turns out MLK was a racist microaggressor.

So That’s What Presidential Libraries Are For

This is slick:

Judicial Watch today announced that the National Security Council (NSC) on May 23, 2017, informed it by letter that the materials regarding the unmasking by Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice of “the identities of any U.S. citizens associated with the Trump presidential campaign or transition team” have been removed to the Obama Library.

Here’s what the National Security Council told Judicial Watch, which wants to get hold of the materials:

Documents from the Obama administration have been transferred to the Barack Obama Presidential Library. You may send your request to the Obama Library. However, you should be aware that under the Presidential Records Act, Presidential records remain closed to the public for five years after an administration has left office.

After 5 years, it will be “old news.” It will be time to “move on.”

For all the tedious duckspeak we have been forced to endure regarding Russia and the election, the only actual crimes committed appear to be leaking and unmasking.

Minimum Wage Madness Begins to Kill Off California’s Restaurant Industry

The restaurant industry is a canary in California’s coalmine of moonbattery. Minimum wage insanity is killing it:

Consider San Francisco, an early adopter of the $15 wage. It’s now experiencing a restaurant die-off, minting jobless hash-slingers, cashiers, busboys, scullery engineers and line cooks as they get pink-slipped in increasing numbers. And the wage there hasn’t yet hit $15.

As the East Bay Times reported in January, at least 60 restaurants around the Bay Area had closed since September alone. …

Another telltale is San Diego, where voters approved increasing the city’s minimum wage to $11.50 per hour from $10.50, this after the minimum wage was increased from $8 an hour in 2015 – meaning hourly costs have risen 43 percent in two years.

The cost increases have pushed San Diego restaurants to the brink, Stephen Zolezzi, president of the Food and Beverage Association of San Diego County, told the San Diego Business Journal. Watch for the next mass die-off there.

It’s bad enough in big cities on the coast. Wages, like prices, are lower inland and in smaller towns. That means that one-size-fits-all central planning is even more unsupportable regarding the minimum wage. Unemployment is already significantly higher away from the coast in California. It will soon be higher still — not that the coastal big city liberals who call the shots are likely to lose sleep over it.

As politicians insert their sausage fingers into subtle market mechanisms, scarcity and unintended consequences will ensue.

One consequence of raising the minimum wage that is so easily predictable that it is hard to call it unintended is the scarcity of jobs. Unemployed people tend to vote Democrat.

The state minimum wage in California is scheduled to jump every year. It will reach $15/hour for all employees in 2023. Each jump will cause a corresponding jump in unemployment, hardship, and if everything goes to hell smoothly, Democrat voters.

Patagonia Devotes Itself to Moonbattery

Patagonia is no longer primarily about overcharging for outdoor clothing. It has other priorities:

The CEO of outdoor clothing giant Patagonia is burnishing her anti-Republican bona fides again, this time saying she intends to pledge her entire company to the “resistance” of President Donald Trump.

Patagonia CEO Rose Marcario recently attacked President Trump for his statements about rolling back President Obama’s unusually aggressive campaign of confiscating millions of acres of state lands and claiming them as “national monuments.”

On behalf of the company, she plans to use lawfare and donations to envirokook political candidates to advance her agenda.

No doubt hermetically sealed in the liberal elite bubble, Marcario cannot be expected to know that people aren’t happy with Obama’s tyrannical land grabs.

Many state governments fully agree with Trump’s assessment and were furious when Obama swooped in from Washington and stole away millions of acres of land from state control to create new national monuments and parks.

A poll of residents of Utah, for instance, showed that 60 percent opposed Obama’s land grab, while only 33 percent supported it.

The federal government already controlled far more than enough land before Obama. We will see if devoting the company to advancing the centralized control characteristic of tyrannies helps Patagonia sell clothing.

The land is supposed to be ours, not the federal government’s.

Army Transsexual Brainwashing Covers Pregnant Men

Someone has to make the decision. Will the U.S. Army be devoted to winning wars, or to moonbattery?

The Army has begun mandatory transgender sensitivity training for soldiers. The training covers everything from “transfemale” soldiers to transgender shower etiquette to dealing with a male soldier who becomes pregnant.

Our progressive rulers are literally imposing insanity.

The matter of male soldiers with child is tucked away inside the Army’s “Policy on the Military Service of Transgender Soldiers Training Module, Tier 2: Commanders and Leaders.” …

“The training module specifically outlines key roles and responsibilities of commanders, transgender soldiers, military medical providers and administrative management organizations,” Lt. Col. Jennifer Johnson told USA Today. “This training is mandatory for all uniformed members, as well as Department of the Army civilians.”

This sick lunacy was initiated under Obama, of course. But no one appears willing to put a stop to it.

Mob of Masked Immigrants Attack Swedish Police

The splendors of multiculturalism continue to unfold in Sweden:

Swedish police in the city of Trollhattan were attacked by up to a hundred masked migrant youths armed with sticks and bats during a riot in the Kronogården suburb on Thursday.

The masked migrant youths attacked the officers during the second night of rioting in the area. They also attacked the officer’s vehicles, slashing the tyres of two police cars. Only one man was arrested in connection with the riots, Swedish paper Aftonbladet reports.

Looks like a native Swede antagonized the put-upon urchins:

The riot is said to have dramatically escalated after several youths attempted to set a tyre on fire in the street and a security guard intervened to put out the fire. The guard was then attacked by the youths who threw stones at him.

No doubt Swedish journalists are clucking their tongues over this security guard, who sought to repress the vibrantly colorful traditional activities of the New Swedes rather than celebrate them.

Looks like we have another no-go zone in the making. There are 50% more of them than there were just 2 years ago. Sweden is up to about 55 Islamic colonies where the police are afraid to set foot. Anyone who complains about rampant crime by swarthy foreigners will be investigated for being racist.

Why not just let the “refugees” remain in the anarchic no-go zones they left behind? Because distributing welfare checks in Syria and Somalis is difficult, amid the carnage and chaos that is only beginning to take root in Sweden.

ESPN’s Max Kellerman Denounces Playing the National Anthem at Sporting Events as “Injecting Politics”

Would you say that Colin Kaepernick injects politics into NFL games by theatrically refusing to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner? Not at all, according to his fellow moonbats at ESPN. It is the NFL that injects politics by playing the national anthem. Barks “First Take” cohost Max Kellerman:

“[Like draft-dodging Nation of Islam moonbat Muhammad Ali,] Colin Kaepernick also did not go looking for a protest. It came to him. He was asked to stand for the national anthem. You do not have to stand for the national anthem. And even if it it was a rule that you did, is that Colin Kaepernick injecting politics in the NFL? No. That’s the NFL injecting politics by playing the national anthem and putting pressure on you to stand for it in the first place.”

Speaking of injecting politics into sports, ESPN does it relentlessly, as this site has documented repeatedly (e.g., here, here, here, here, here, and here). ESPN’s ultra-left viewpoint may not be far outside the Overton window for sportscasters, who have an overwhelming tendency to be moonbats, but fans are another matter — they tend to lean right:

No wonder ESPN has fallen on hard times. As more people cut the cord, and cable companies are forced to respond, fewer people will have to pay for ESPN whether they watch it or not. Soon ESPN will face a choice: dump kooks like Kellerman and drop the leftist evangelizing or die.

Pervert Pride White Skittles Blow Up in Pandering Execs’ Faces

The only good thing about corporations pandering to moonbattery at the dismissive expense of customers who are not liberals is watching it blow up in their slack-jawed faces. They never learn that no matter how obsequiously politically correct you are, you cannot be P.C. enough to placate the thought police. The emetic Pepsi Black Lives Matter ad was one example. A recent attempt to get us to associate Skittles with the LGBT agenda is another:

Skittles has temporarily ditched its rainbow theme in favor of an all-white look in the United Kingdom and Germany in order to give LGBT pride celebrations “center stage.”

Michelle Green, a spokeswoman for the Chicago-based Wrigley Company, which makes Skittles, tells The Associated Press that since rainbow colors are identified with both LGBT pride and Skittles, the candy maker chose one color during the celebrations “in order for Pride’s rainbow to take center stage.”

Here’s the thanks they get from the moonbats they so disgustingly suck up to:

Why sure they do:

white skittles

White people are bad, ergo the color white is bad. Get with the program, you racists!

Next time they should make the Skittles all brown, since that color isn’t racist. Also, it would reflect the anal inclinations of the gay community. Maybe they could even try some thematically appropriately flavoring. It wouldn’t make me any less likely to buy Skittles.
