Please Help CNN

Please have pity on CNN. It isn’t easy to go through life without a sense of humor. If you laugh on a regular basis, you may have more humor than absolutely necessary. Send whatever you can spare to the Commie News Network. As you can see, their need is dire:

Yeah Right


As part of its celebration of diversity, Paris is building a giant glass wall around the Eiffel Tower to shield it from terror attacks. Maybe they should just put a crescent moon and star on the top and get it over with.

School Children Subjected to Terrifying Bondage to Intensify White Guilt Indoctrination

First, they replaced education with indoctrination. Now they are twisting the knobs on the indoctrination up to 11. From Cerritos, California:

Whitney High School junior Timothy Reyes had his hands taped together and was a part of a slave ship reenactment when he was an 8th grader on the Cerritos campus.

A mother complained recently after getting an email from her son’s teacher explaining the “unique classroom activity,” which was to be a surprise. Staff would act as slave ship captains, the email described, and the children slaves.

After lining the kids up, the note said, they’d “use masking tape to ‘tie’ their wrists together, make them lay on the ground, and in a dark room have them watch a clip from the film ‘Roots.’ ”

A nuclear war with the Soviet Union might have been less destructive than allowing liberals to take control of education.

They want us to spend our lives cringing like these fools.

Princeton Acknowledges Constitution Day With “F%*# Free Speech” Event

September 17 was Constitution Day. Each year, it provides an opportunity to honor the document that has helped secure the fundamental liberties we hold dear, such as freedom of speech. Many acknowledge the date by displaying the American flag. Academia takes a different approach:

This year, Princeton University’s annual Constitution Day Lecture contended that “the academy has never promoted free speech as a central value.”

The lecture, given by Prof. Carolyn Rouse, Chair of the Department of Anthropology and Director of the Program in African Studies, was entitled “F%*# Free Speech: An Anthropologist’s Take on Campus Speech Debates.”

The speech consisted of high-toned word salad meant to provide an intellectual basis for suppressing speech for the sake of the sacred unheard victims and because truth is unknowable anyway. Louse also proclaimed that “there is no such thing as uncoerced free will,” and rejected the fundamental concept of natural rights, upon which the Constitution and American civilization rest.

Princeton is an outrageously expensive Ivy League institution. Thanks to Affirmative Action, that is no guarantee that the instructors will have anything constructive to say, or even be intelligent. But then, the purpose of a modern academic isn’t to instruct or enlighten anyway; it is to destroy.

This malevolent nitwit’s job is to undermine, corrode, and ruin.

Shrillary Won’t Rule Out Challenging 2016 Election Results

Trump had better pack his bags. He might have to move out of the White House on short notice:

Hillary Clinton on Monday would not rule out the possibility of challenging the results of the 2016 presidential election, saying it’s clear the Russians influenced the outcome and that the legitimacy of President Trump’s victory could be called into question as congressional and independent probes into Russian involvement move forward.

What is more of a threat to American democracy, leaking a few emails that reinforced the opinion everyone already had of Shrillary, or refusing to respect the results of an election? Here’s what Shrillary herself had to say on the topic, prior to her election day pratfall:

“Every time Donald thinks things are not going in his direction he claims whatever it is… is rigged against him,” said Clinton in Las Vegas on October 19.

“He became the first person, Republican or Democrat, who refused to say that he would respect the results of this election. Now, that is a direct threat to our democracy,” she added at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire on October 24.

If Shrillary were not such a farcical failure, she would in fact be a direct threat to our democracy.

Truly pathetic.

Moonbat Demands Hobby Lobby Remove Cotton Display

If Robert E. Lee statues and Confederate flags are racist because they remind liberals of slavery, then so is cotton:

A Facebook post late last week shows a photo of a raw cotton plant in a glass vase on one of Hobby Lobby’s shelves.

“So wrong on so many levels” is how Texas shopper Daniell Rider described it.

“There is nothing decorative about raw cotton,” she said. “A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. Please remove this decor.”

If they won’t remove it voluntarily, there are two other options: (1) they can be vandalized and terrorized by Black Lives Matter/Antifa types, or (2) Big Government can step in with legislation.

Christian-owned Hobby Lobby is already skating on thin ice after successfully resisting an ObamaCare abortion mandate. There have been calls by tolerant liberals to burn down their stores.

If raw cotton displays are racist, so are cotton clothes. Looks like we may have to get used to polyester.

Beyond self-parody.

Canadian Climate Commies Criminalize Objective Reality

It’s getting scary up there:

Canada’s Competition Bureau, an arm’s length agency funded by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government to the tune of almost $50 million annually, investigated three organizations accused of denying mainstream climate science for over a year, following a complaint from an environmental group.

The complaint was filed by an outfit with the weirdly ominous name Ecojustice.

It accused three groups, Friends of Science, the International Climate Science Coalition, and the Heartland Institute of making false and misleading claims about climate change, including that the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide, and that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.

Militant liberals are literally criminalizing scientific facts.

When it launched its complaint in December, 2015, Ecojustice told the National Observer it would press the Commissioner of Competition to refer the matter to the Attorney-General of Canada for “criminal charges against the denier groups”.

Students of totalitarianism know where this will end: with tyrants throwing each other in jail over minor deviations from their own increasingly calcified ideology. If global warming theory predicts that temperatures will go up by 0.0003°F each year, are you a criminal if you report that temps went up, but only by 0.0002°F? What if you misstate the official prediction regarding how many feet underwater Toronto will be in the year 2042 if taxes are not raised by at least 40%? That too might be a criminal offense.

Canada is taking a wrong turn.

Emmys in a Nutshell: Outdoor A.C. for Global Warmists

Most people found better things to do than watch the Emmys last night. This probably tells us all we need to know about the annual self-congratulatory farce:

This is the first year that the Red Carpet got air conditioning. After last year’s heat wave, stars and press were treated to much cooler temperatures this year than last year. (Interestingly, the show opened with a sketch in which Allison Janney worried about several problems, including global warming.)

According to the ideology sanctimoniously preached by the glitterpigs who dominate the entertainment industry, air conditioning is causing the planet to perish of global warming. But it doesn’t matter if the Golden People use air conditioning — even outdoors! — so long as its use is restricted among the little people who finance their extravagant lifestyle by paying for the rubbish that spills out of Tinseltown.

Few people sat through this.

EU Report Characterizes Opposition to Abortion as a Crime Against Humanity

In Liberal Land, words mean whatever you want them to mean. For example, dismembering children in the womb, or half-delivering them, then stabbing them to death with scissors, does not constitute violence. On the contrary, objecting to these crimes constitutes violence:

The European Parliament has been accused of trying to “criminalise” pro-life views after passing a report which describes reducing access to abortion as “violence against women and girls”. …

The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) produced the interim report, which calls on all EU member-states to “urgently” ratify a new convention on violence against women, and “recommends”:

“The EU strongly affirms that the denial of sexual and reproductive health and rights services, including safe and legal abortion, is a form of violence against women and girls.”

All member states must “guarantee” both “comprehensive sexuality education” — which in practice entails corrupting children with a degenerate agenda — and “safe and legal abortion.”

The report implies that failure to provide abortion, presumably at other people’s expense as necessary, should be officially regarded as a “crime against humanity.”

There is no tolerance for dissent in moonbattery. Consequently, suggesting that public funding for abortion be reduced now potentially qualifies as a crime against humanity.

If the insistence that it subject itself to Islamic colonization doesn’t drive Catholic Poland out of the EU, maybe this will do the trick.

Militant moonbats may drive Poland out.

Refugee Arrested in Parsons Green Tube Terror Attack

Another arrest has been made in last Friday’s rush hour terror attack on the London subway:

The second man arrested in connection with the Parsons Green Tube attack is a party-loving Syrian refugee who worked as a nightclub promoter.

Yahyah Farroukh, a 21-year-old refugee and former foster child, is registered as living at the address in Stanwell where police today conducted a search.

His arrest comes after an 18-year-old was arrested at 7.50am in Dover port on Saturday morning as he attempted to board a ferry.

The 18-year-old was fostered by Ron and Penny Jones in Sunbury-on-Thames before his arrest, as was Farroukh – though he has since left their home.

Farroukh came from Egypt to Italy on a migrant boat in 2014, and from there made his way to the U.K.

This is how you can expect kindness to repaid when the kindness is actually suicidal idiocy. Europe is under invasion. Treating the invaders as victims to be condescendingly pitied will not make them less bloodthirsty.

Scholar Points to Benefits of Colonialism, Others Demand He Be Silenced

The best thing that ever happened to the non-Western world was colonialism, which spread the manifold benefits of European civilization across the globe, resulting in better health, longer life spans, increased populations, higher standards or living, and more political freedom than had ever been known outside of Europe before. Yet according to cultural Marxism, the official ideology of academia, European civilization is the source of all evil; only when it has been eradicated can mankind return to the blissful condition of the Noble Savage. What would happen if a scholar were honest enough to tell the truth about colonialism, rather than reciting the corrosive lies normally taught to students? Here’s what:

Several professors have launched a petition seeking to take down an academic essay that extols the benefits of Western colonialism.

The appeal was launched on petition website and calls for Third World Quarterly, an academic journal published by Routledge, to apologize and retract Portland State University Professor Bruce Gilley’s “appalling article” titled The Case for Colonialism.

Get a load of this heresy:

In the abstract of the essay, Gilley, a political science professor at Portland State University, argues that Western colonialism was “as a general rule, both objectively beneficial and subjectively legitimate in most of the places where it was found, using realistic measures of those concepts.

“The countries that embraced their colonial inheritance, by and large, did better than those that spurned it,” he elaborates. “Anti-colonial ideology imposed grave harms on subject peoples and continues to thwart sustained development and a fruitful encounter with modernity in many places.”

Compare Singapore to Zimbabwe, and you’ve got the idea.

Since he is obviously right, his fellow academics don’t try to argue with him. They just demand that he be silenced. Gilley’s findings have been denounced as “offensive” and as sacrilege against sacred “BIPOC” (black people, indigenous peoples, and people of color).

Gilley also argues that the practice of colonialism “can be recovered by weak and fragile states today in three ways: by reclaiming colonial modes of governance; by recolonising some areas; and by creating new Western colonies from scratch.”

Excellent idea, for everyone concerned. Unfortunately, the liberal ruling class would never allow it to happen. That’s why civilization doesn’t expand anymore, but instead has begun to contract — to the benefit of no one.

Forward progress was seen under flags like these.

Educrats Discourage Chanting “USA” at Sports Events

To get an idea of how broadly federal resolutions to crack down on “racism, extremism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and White supremacy” might be applied, consider that educrats consider it “intolerant and offensive” for sports fans to chant “USA”:

Controversy erupts at Vista Del Lago High School in Folsom [California] over students chanting “USA.”

It’s a popular way to for students to show pride during sporting events and rallies, but school and district officials are now warning students that the chants could appear inappropriate and intolerant.

“I wasn’t angry, but I was definitely like, ‘Why can’t we chant USA?’” said senior Ryan Bernal, “To say USA, you know, we’re all the same. We’re all American. It doesn’t matter what your skin tone is or where you’re from.”

No, we are not all the same. Some are guilty of white privilege. By celebrating America, these thought criminals are celebrating the freedom that allows them to succeed. That is, they are celebrating their odious white privilege. Therefore, these racists must be silenced. Or at least, that’s the closest I can come to understanding liberal reasoning on this issue.

One thing I understand clearly is that patriotism and political correctness are mutually exclusive.

Shrillary, MSNBC, and the Car Wreck Effect

More Shrillary on Rachel Maddow:

Host Rachel Maddow interrupted a live, on-set interview with Hillary Clinton Thursday night to show a video of a panda sneezing.

“Welcome back,” she said after a commercial break. “My interview with Secretary Hillary Clinton is subject to an interruption because of this important video of a sneezing panda.”

The video was supposedly relevant because of what Shrillary calls the Panda Principle.

“Pandas just live their lives,” Maddow said reading a segment from Clinton’s newly release[d] book, “What Happened.” “They eat bamboo. They play with their kids but for some reason, people love watching pandas hoping for something, anything to happen.”

Likewise, people watch Shrillary, waiting for her to make a fool of herself again, even now that she is no longer running for President. This could more aptly be called the Car Wreck Effect.

“It is true, people ask me these questions all the time,” Clinton replied. “And I thought well, you know what? I just want to embrace it and go ahead and tell you what I have for breakfast and all the rest of it and maybe it will give people a little bit of satisfaction that they know me better than they thought they did.”

No wonder Amazon and Walmart slashed the price of her new book by 40% before its release.

Madcow should have saved the Panda video so that they would have something to cut away to in case Shrillary started saying something truly stupid.

Jennifer Lawrence Sets the Record Straight on Who Caused Harvey and Irma

While honoring the time-honored liberal celebrity tradition of denouncing her own country to a foreign journalist, Tinseltown bubblehead Jennifer Lawrence allegedly blamed Trump for the recent hurricanes. However:

In a statement on Facebook, the Oscar-winning actress said her remarks were taken “grossly out of context.”

“Obviously I never claimed that President Trump was responsible for these tragic hurricanes,” she wrote. “That is a silly and preposterous headline…”

True enough, Ms. Lawrence did not say Trump directly caused the hurricanes. Rather, the hurricanes were supposedly caused by people voting for Trump:

BTW, hats off to Jennifer for starring in what could be the worst movie of the century. Nobody notices mediocrity. It takes something special to be the very worst.
