Socialism Reduces Venezuelans to Renting Coffins

Not even the dead can escape the consequences of letting socialism get out of control in Venezuela:

As the South American nation grapples with soaring inflation, rising murder rates and shortages of basic supplies and medicine, there is one more thing that Venezuelans are having problems getting their hands one: coffins.

The situation has become so dire that many cash-strapped Venezuelans have resorted to burying their deceased loved ones in cardboard boxes. Coffins made of more durable materials can, however, be rented for a few hours to use during the funeral.

Apparently some can’t even afford the cardboard or rental coffins:

The coffin crisis has become so acute that many families have been forced to bring their loved ones to crematoriums in bags.

“I felt so depressed. I didn’t have all the money the funeral parlor was asking for,” Miriam Navarro, who had to borrow money from neighbors to bury her brother, told AFP. “If it hadn’t been for people in my community, I would have had to bury him in the yard.”

Congratulations to Comrade Maduro for striking a righteous blow against interment inequality by so impoverishing the country that hardly anyone can afford a decent funeral. Bernie Sanders supporters must be grieving because it could be a few years before this much social justice hits American mortuaries.

Comedian Fined $42,000 for Insensitive Joke

Make up your mind, do you want ideological totalitarianism, or do you want humor? You can’t have both:

Canadian comedian Mike Ward was fined a whopping $42,000 by Quebec’s Human Rights Tribunal for jokes he made about a disabled boy.

The child, Jérémy Gabriel, who suffers from Treacher Collins Syndrome, is a bit of a national celebrity in Canada after he sung for the pope in 2006 essentially because everyone thought he did not have long to live. Ward’s joke was a rant about how the child was supposed to die, that he “stole a wish” and is unkillable. Sure, not in great taste, but certainly not in violation of the kid’s “human rights.”

His joke was never televised, but after he talked about the bit in an interview, Gabriel’s parents found out and dragged the comedian to the human rights tribunal last month.

The best evidence that liberal authoritarians are using George Orwell’s 1984 as an instruction manual may be Canada’s “human rights” tribunals, which are devoted to denying Canadians the fundamental human right of free speech.

Mike Ward makes his case for free speech.

Autistic Indian Injured by Washington Bureaucrat in Fight Over Redskins Jersey

If a story ever perfectly encapsulated the insanity of political correctness, this is it:

An Oklahoma college student visiting Washington D.C. on a school trip, says he was beat up for wearing a Redskins Jersey. And the person he got into a fight with was a White House official in charge of American Indian education.

Hold on, it gets better:

Barrett Dahl is Native American and a member of both the Choctaw and Sac and Fox Nations. He is also autistic. He says he wore the Redskins shirt because he was in Washington D.C. and because he sees it as a sense of cultural pride. However, when he showed up wearing it at a Pow Wow that’s when the trouble started.

He says within seconds of sitting down he was approached by William Mendoza.

“He comes to me and calls me the name weetard not retard, weetard. ‘You’re a weetard for not understanding Redskins is offensive’,” said Dahl on Wednesday. The incident happened back on October 30 of last year.

Honoring Indians by naming a team the Redskins is offensive. Calling people with autism “weetards” is not offensive. These are the rules as laid down by William Mendoza, who is in a position to impose them because he is the Executive Director of the White House Initiative of American Indian and Alaska Native Education.

Why don’t they name the DC football team the Bureaucrats? After all, there are far more William Mendoza types within the Beltway than genuine Indians. The answer of course is that naming a team is a gesture of respect, and no one respects bureauweenies.

Both Dahl and Mendoza claim it was the other guy who started swinging. The fight has cost Dahl $thousands in medical expenses, in part due to multiple surgeries being required for his injured hand. He should know better than to punch skulls full of rocks.

If Dahl came to Washington hoping to learn about modern politics, the trip was a success.

Bush/Katrina Versus Obama and the Current Flooding in Louisiana

Last time there was flooding this bad in Louisiana, the media fashioned the wreckage into a cross and crucified Bush on it. W did a flyover, not wanting to get in the way of rescue operations, but that only blew up in his face when the media used the event to portray him as aloof.

This time is different. You will get no flyovers from Obama. He is too busy:

Here’s how the Washington Post spins it now: Obama is too genuine to do anything merely because of optics, like put in an appearance in Louisiana rather than play golf with his leftist Tinseltown pals:

Obama just doesn’t like to fake it. … That’s why Obama won’t break off his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard — or stop playing golf on said vacation — to travel to Louisiana. Because he believes he can monitor the situation as well — or better — from where he is. And that the sole reason to go to Louisiana is for the theatrical piece of politics, a piece that he not only rejects but detests.

Maybe he’s playing golf with his friends instead of making an effort to appear engaged because he knew WaPo et al. would provide absolution.

If you want a successful presidency, it must be perceived as successful. Step One is to get the media on your side. Step Two is to actually do a good job. Step Two is optional, because in politics, perception is reality.

School District Advises Teachers Not to Use Words “Boys” and “Girls”

According to progressive ideology, any perceive difference between boys and girls is only a social construct, a vestigial remnant of the justly dying world of heteronormative patriarchal oppression. Therefore, words that distinguish them from each other are to be avoided:

Teachers in North Carolina have been warned against gender-specific pronouns when referring to students as it may offend transgender children.

In a 57-page training manual for teachers and classroom assistants, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools have urged teachers to take care when addressing their pupils.

Instead of ‘boys and girls’, teachers are asked to refer to the youngsters as ‘students and scholars’.

The document also includes an amazing array of statistics invented to advance the LGBT agenda. Someone at GLSEN decided that 68.1% of LGBT students have “avoided school functions because they felt unsafe or uncomfortable” and that 56.7% of them did not report being harassed or assaulted “because they doubted that an effective intervention would occur.” For some reason, a less precise number was created for this fictitious factoid: “30–40% of all homeless youth identify as LGBT.”

In concert with the federal initiative, Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s proposed new policy includes letting boys use private facilities such as bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers that are intended for girls.

The “Supporting Transgender Students” training manual also includes a familiar visual aid:

Moonbats Flock to Seattle Brainwashing Sessions on “White Fragility”

Are you tired of being denounced, denigrated, marginalized, belittled, demonized, physically assaulted, and systematically discriminated against because you are white? If so, you suffer from white fragility. Don’t worry, government has a cure:

A city-run cultural program in Seattle is offering residents classes on “white fragility” to [help] white folks understand why they can’t seem to handle matters involving race, and tickets have sold out.

Lecturer Robin DiAngelo, who coined the term, is teaching the taxpayer-funded class for the city Office of Arts and Culture. She defines white fragility as “a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves.”

Background on the government-sponsored lecturer:

DiAngelo, who is white, has made a career out of studying whiteness. She earned her doctorate in Multicultural Education from the University of Washington in 2004. Ten years later she became a tenured professor in whiteness studies at Westfield State University. Now she is back in Seattle working as a lecturer at the University of Washington. She’s also director of equity for Sound Generations, Seattle/King County and was recently appointed to co-design Seattle’s Race and Social Justice Anti-Racism Training program.

In “African American studies,” you learn all about how black supremacism is justified. But you won’t hear anything positive about whites in “whiteness studies” classes.

When they get around to the Final Solution, instead of “Arbeit Macht Frei,” the sign above the gate will read, “Renounce Your White Fragility.”

Soros Gives Gore $Millions to Spread Global Warming Propaganda

Why does Al Gore continue to push anthropogenic global warming dogma when his own living and travel habits clearly indicate that he knows it is a lie? The purpose of the hoax is to radically increase taxation and government control over the economy, whereas Gore is no longer part of the government. What is in it for him? The answer is money:

Liberal billionaire George Soros gave former Vice President Al Gore’s environmental group millions of dollars over three years to create a “political space for aggressive U.S. action” on global warming, according to leaked documents.

A document published by DC Leaks shows Soros, a Hungarian-born liberal financier, wanted his nonprofit Open Society Institute (OSI) to do more to support global warming policies in the U.S. That included budgeting $10 million in annual support to Gore’s climate group over three years. …

“There has been a budget of $11 million for global warming grants in the U.S. Programs budget for the last several years,” the memo reads. “This budget item captures George Soros’s commitment of $10 million per year for three years to Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection, which conducts public education on the climate issue in pursuit of creating political space for aggressive U.S. action in line with what scientists [are paid to] say is necessary to put our nation on a path to reducing its outsize carbon dioxide emissions.”

What’s in it for Soros, who isn’t in the government either? Considering the effect global warming objectives would have on the economy, maybe malice is its own reward. More likely, the answer is that you don’t have to be in the government to benefit when the government is your tool.

Intruder Shot by Entire Family

They say the family that prays together, stays together. Likewise, the family that resists together, persists together. From Winter Haven, Florida:

An entire family participated in the shooting of an intruder who broke into a house less than a mile from his own residence. A mother, father, and adult son were awoken to the sound of the intruder breaking through their back door. By the time he reached the kitchen, the whole family was armed and ready to engage the threat.

Engage they did. The home invader did not survive the encounter.

Actual Quotes From This Year’s Animal Rights Conferences

The Animal Agriculture Alliance sends representatives to prominent animal rights conferences to keep tabs on what humanity’s opposition is up to. Dairy Herd collected quotes from this year’s speakers. A few examples:

• “We’re preying on emotions to push our vegan agenda. We do not give our consent to enslave meat, we do not give our consent to murder [i.e., kill animals for food].” – Simone Reyes, television personality

• “All of these events [agricultural fairs, eating contests, political rallies] need to be interrupted and shut down.” – Zach Groff, organizer, Direct Action Everywhere

• “Humane meat? There is no such thing.” – Mike Wolf, investigator, Compassion Over Killing.

• “We terrify them – let’s remind them why.” – Ryan Shapiro, activist and doctoral candidate, comparing the meat industry to the Nazi regime. Shapiro also said all men need to get a vasectomy and “we need to decrease our population.”

• “If we want to put an end to factory farming, we have to reduce the amount of meat being eaten.” – Kristie Middleton, senior director, food policy, Humane Society of the United States

• “We are trying to destroy animal agriculture.” – Wayne Hsiung, founder, Direct Action Everywhere.

Normally gibbering lunatics are not taken seriously. But these people have ideological allies in increasingly powerful places. As progressivism progresses, no fundamental right can be taken for granted, including the right to consume a normal human diet.

Princeton Moves Toward Eradicating the Word “Man”

To the extent they are men, men are politically incorrect. Consequently, using the word “man” is frowned upon:

The Princeton University HR department has largely wiped the word “man” from its vocabulary.

The relatively new policy in effect at the Ivy League institution spells out the directive in a four-page memo that aims to make the department more gender inclusive.

Instead of using “man,” employees are told to use words such as human beings, individuals or people.

Other guidelines? Instead of “man and wife” use spouses or partners. Switch out “man made” with artificial, handmade or manufactured. Don’t use the verb “to man,” as in to work something, instead use to operate or to staff. Throw out workmanlike and replace it with skillful.

Applying Ingsoc theory, once the word “man” has been completely eradicated, the concept will be erased from our minds, and soon after, from society. Where once there were men, there will be only left-leaning milksops of the sort you see when you turn on your TV. Utopia will be that much closer.

This is too important to wait for the next edition of the Newspeak Dictionary. Update your current copy by hand at once. Otherwise you might fall into thought crime, like this otherwise ideologically compliant person who errs by using the word “unmanly”:

USDA Uses Your Money to Promote Lesbian Farming

Under rule by progressives, all government agencies share a single primary task: social engineering. For example:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is holding summits to promote the role of lesbian farmers as a part of its “Rural Pride” campaign.

The federal government is run by rigid P.C. ideologues who despise anything rural, so “Rural Pride” would seem to be an oxymoron for them — except that in Liberalese, “pride” is a euphemism for homosexual deviancy, which they will go to any length to encourage because it undermines marriage, family, normalcy, morality, and Christianity, not to mention public health.

The agency is working with singer and LGBT activist Cyndi Lauper for a “day of conversation” about the struggles of gay and transgender individuals in rural America. The agency says its wants to change the perception of what it means to be a farmer in America away from the “white, rich male.”

We all know that white, rich males have been slated for eradication. But who knew that most farmers are rich?

Somehow I doubt we will eat any better if social engineers manage to replace farmers with impoverished lesbians.

A summit is scheduled for today at Drake University in Iowa.

“The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Civil Rights, in collaboration with the National Center for Lesbian Rights and The True Colors Fund, will engage with LGBT rural communities across the country to host the LGBT Rural Summit Series,” the USDA said. “Each series will offer a unique opportunity for USDA and other federal agencies to share information relating to policies, programs, and services that exist to protect, promote and strengthen LGBT rural communities.”

What the hell is the USDA doing promoting sexual depravity? Redistributing your money, that’s what it’s doing:

The all-day summit will teach lesbian and transgender hillbillies how to get subsidies from the government like rural housing loans and “community facility grants.” Bullying will also be discussed.

“Bullying” means displaying a lack of enthusiasm for the LGBT agenda.

The agency said nearly 10 percent of all same-sex couples in the United States live in rural areas and are “actually more likely to be families of color and raising children.”

“The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force also issued a report finding that these couples are more likely to be low-income and are almost twice as likely to receive public assistance,” the agency said. “The transgender community is particularly vulnerable.”

I swear this is on the level.

Via The College Fix:

It is unclear how much the program is costing U.S. taxpayers, although USDA’s Office of Civil Rights, which is coordinating the summits, requested $24.4 million in funding in its fiscal-year 2016 budget request.

If they can spend $millions of our money to promote twisted weirdness like lesbian/transsexual farming without a whisper of resistance, what can’t they do?

A Salivating Hillary Plans Her Looting Spree

How will Shrillary finance a vast expansion of our already oppressively overgrown federal government? By seizing people’s wealth, of course. She’ll start with those who have the most of it:

“I’ll tell you how we’re going to pay for it,” she said Tuesday in Pennsylvania, referring specifically to her economic agenda. “We’re going where the money is.”

When asked why he robbed banks, Willie Sutton is said to have said, “Because that’s where the money is.” Shrillary’s mind works identically.

“We are going after the super wealthy, we are going after corporations, we are going after Wall Street so they pay their fair share.”

The USA already has the highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world, which is a major reason for our economic decline. But so long as people who work rather than vote for a living still have shirts on their backs, they have not yet coughed up their “fair share” to greedy, useless, malevolent parasites like Hillary Clinton.

When the “rich” have been cleaned out, the middle class will be where the money is. As in Venezuela or any other socialist country, those among the rich who have the right political connections will escape fleecing; the middle class will not be so fortunate.

Ellen DeGeneres Accused of Racism

Say it ain’t so! Ellen Degenerate — the seeming personification of political correctness — has been revealed as a racist:

On Monday, comedian and congenial talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a joke that involved a photoshopped image of her riding on Olympic runner Usain Bolt’s back.

Even though this tweet clearly had nothing to do with race, the outrage brigade went into full force – and has continued on into Wednesday. DeGeneres was accused of racism because slavery used to be a thing in the U.S. and her photo involved her, a white person, riding on the back of Bolt, who is black.

Sorry Ellen. Being noisy about your lesbianism is not enough. Under a totalitarian ideology, nothing can ever be enough. The Revolution must always be fed new thought criminals. Like a fire burning out of control, it will not stop destroying until it has consumed all possible fuel.
