Moonbat Contradictions

OAN’s Liz Wheeler could have gone on listing contradictions in moonbat rhetoric all night. She managed to get in quite a few in under 4 minutes:

Actually, moonbattery is only characterized by contradictions on the surface. Once you realize that nothing progressives bark can be taken at face value, you see that they are always quite consistent in supporting anything that is unhealthy, unholy, unfair, or unwise in support of destroying our culture and achieving more power.

What Has Britain Become?

Computing Forever weighs in on the precipitous decline of formerly great Britain, which moonbattery has been reducing to a sad, authoritarian shadow of its former self at an alarming pace:

Even if the British had succumbed to the Nazis, there would still be such a thing as British culture. This is not true of succumbing to progressives.

Google Puts the Squeeze on LifeSiteNews

LifeSiteNews has experienced the ire of the Ministry of Truth — a.k.a. Google:

Google, the world’s most popular internet tool, has removed revenue-generating ads from select LifeSiteNews reports after it deemed that some of the content on the pro-life and pro-family website violated Google standards.

Stories that were regarded as unacceptable by Google included a woman reporting on the sexual abuse she experienced growing up in an LGBT home, a piece featuring a baby born prematurely and looking conspicuously human, one with a video of another conspicuously human fetus still in the amniotic sac, and a story with no images of a baby born alive after an abortion failed.

Evidently, anything likely to tug heartstrings in a direction not to Google’s ultraleft liking is subject to ad restrictions.

These days it is difficult to get anywhere online without Google. The company is aware of its power and does not hesitate to exploit it to advance an ideology that is pernicious and depraved. This places an insalutary spin on the entire Internet.

Maryland NAACP News Conference Apparently Based on Hoax

Dig far enough down into a Baltimore Sun article about Anne Arundel County NAACP President Rev. Stephen Tillett and other moonbats screeching at a press conference about the oppression of Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation at Chesapeake High School in Pasadena, Maryland, and you will find that the spectacle was apparently based on a hate hoax:

The news conference followed a threatening post made Feb. 26 against the school specifically targeting black students.

Lt. Ryan Frashure, Anne Arundel County police spokesman, said investigators have identified the student who posted that threat — an African-American student who was charged as a juvenile with disrupting school activities.

The unnamed student’s motives are not known, but the cultural Marxist motives of the moonbats who took his threatening post and ran with it are obvious.

They would have preferred to base the NAACP spectacle on a hate crime committed by a Caucasian. But since those don’t happen very often, they had to make do.

The important thing is that this allowed demagogues to raise awareness:

Tillett … also discussed disparity in achievement and discipline for minority students compared to whites in Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

About 18 percent of African-American students passed the 2017 PARCC Algebra 1 exam countywide, compared to 26.9 percent of Hispanic students passed, 55.7 percent of white students passed and 64.2 percent of Asian students.

One reason blacks perform so poorly is that they behave poorly:

The federal Department of Education’s Civil Rights Data Collection shows figures from 2013 indicating that while 21 percent of the system’s student population was black, they comprised 44 percent of suspensions.

The stats above are presented as evidence that the problem is white people, who are racist.

For staging this farce, the Anne Arundel County NAACP earns a spot on the Hate Hoax List.

Portland City Council Helps Make Housing Unaffordable

Why is homelessness getting to be such a problem on the Left Coast? Moonbat-ruled Portland helps demonstrate. Unanimously imposed by the City Council:

The renter protection policy requires landlords to pay relocation costs ranging from $2,900 to $4,500 to tenants subject to no-cost evictions or who choose to move if their rents are raised more than 10 percent a year.

Rent will have to rise by enough to cover this. Otherwise, how are landlords expected to stay in business?

In another unanimous decision, the City Council…

…turned down a proposal to build hundreds of more apartments in the Pearl District. Although they would have been in a high-end 17-story tower, economists argue that increasing the total supply of housing will help bring costs down.

Yes, creating more housing units lowers the cost of housing. But if liberals grasped basic principles of economics, they would not be liberals.

The new apartments were nixed for allegedly infringing upon a greenway. Similar priorities prevail in California, resulting in housing prices and the homeless rate exploiting in tandem.

That is a major reason California has the lowest quality of life in the nation. The same ideology will produce the same results up the coast.

Student Walkout Features Tearing Down American Flag

With massive help from the media, the ultraleft has done an impressive job of mobilizing adolescents to attack the Second Amendment. There actually are people out there who will take the student walkout spectacles at face value. Antioch High School near Nashville will not be featured in national coverage:

Students left school in an apparently protest for gun control at the high school, but videos posted on Facebook shows a group ripping down the American flag from a flagpole and stomping on it.

Considering that the whole point of hijacking Parkland to attack gun rights is to undermine the Constitution that defines the country, desecrating Old Glory was highly appropriate.

Police say that some students also jumped onto one of their patrol cars.

Police represent the old order. When the new one has been imposed, no one will dare attack police cars.

Exploiting mobs of immature hooligans to advance an authoritarian agenda is not a new tactic. The communist Chinese used it to create a reign of terror during the Cultural Revolution.

South African Rivers Reduced to Sewers

If moonbats cared about the environment as much as they say, they would be less pleased with their handiwork in South Africa. International political correctness pressured the formerly advanced country into submitting to black rule. The consequences have been horrific not only for white farmers, but also for the Hennops River:

Plastic bags, used toilet paper discarded pieces of cloth and all kinds of rubbish are hanging from tree branches.

There seemed to be no attempt in the pipeline to restore the river, said resident Charl Niehaus. …

“Many years ago, it was a river everybody was proud of. You could swim, have picnics and walk along the river,” he remembered.

“Today it is a filthy, stinking river of sewerage, which seriously threatens the environment and human lives.”

One of the quaint and colorful customs that set apart the Third World is the habit of dumping waste directly into rivers.

The Letaba River has suffered a similar fate:

The DA found human excretion, blood, toxic waste and other dangerous medical waste spewing from the [Letaba Hospital] directly into the Letaba River. This is due to the pump station, which is supposed to pump toxic waste to a purifying plant, not being operational for over six months. …

The reason for the inactive pump station is allegedly the result of Eskom removing the breakers for the pump station last year, rendering it useless. This is apparently due to the excessive debts owed to Eskom by the Mopani District Municipality.

Sounds like government mismanagement. It set in like a terminal case of tuberculosis with the end of Apartheid in 1994.

The stench from the river due to the waste is unbearable. Surgical gloves, bandages and […] countless other waste litters the river.

Less than 200 meters down the river from the hospital, people were bathing and further down a water truck was found pumping water out of the river, possibly to sell to people in the area.

For some reason, the same international media that was all over South Africa like ants on a picnic prior to 1994 seems uninterested in this opportunity to expose crimes against Gaia.

Those who live there aren’t able to avoid the situation by ignoring it. In Cape Town, the sewage comes right into their homes:

Resident Mpumi Simani, 24, says over the past week residents in Albert Shweni Street (NY28) have had to deal with the stench of raw sewage and resorted to using buckets as they were unable to flush their toilets.

“The drain was overflowing and the water pushed up into our yards. We could not use our toilet for almost a week because the water would not go down, so we had to use buckets and it is very unhealthy,” Mpumi says.

“I contacted the City of Cape Town and they said we must wait for 48 hours, but we waited longer than that. This is not the first time this has happened and it started at the beginning of the year. Every time they fix it and it just happens again.”

Mpumi is advised to get used to it. Driving out the last whites will not improve the situation.

Carnage Enriches Sweden’s Multicultural Tapestry

By succumbing to moonbattery, Swedes made their bed. Now they have to lie in it:

The mother of the family had her neck slashed. The carotid arteries on both sides of her neck had been severed. When the police arrived at the scene, one of the perpetrators was sitting astride the father stabbing him. Information reveals that one of those murdered was supposed to testify as witness to another murder, but now they have been murdered themselves.

The carnage occurred in Hallonbergen in Northern Stockholm. The victims’ orphaned children will grow up in a very different Sweden than their parents did.

Some of the four killers are children themselves:

Two are young men, 20 and 21 years old. The other two are boys, 15 and 16 years old respectively.

A source told News Today,

“They were very geared up when they came in. They sat and laughed and were really excited. It turns my stomach knowing that they will be out on the street again after a maximum of two years.”

Maybe that’s why they were laughing.

According an Aftonbladet source,

“All of them have foreign-sounding names. I know that one is African. I think the rest have a background in the Middle East or North Africa.”

Anyone surprised?

Muslim Mayor of Londonistan Comes to USA to Attack Free Speech Online

As the treatment of Lauren Southern, Martin Sellner, and Brittany Pettibone made obvious, freedom of speech is all but dead in Britain. It was destroyed by Islamophilic political correctness, which the U.K. now exports:

At the annual SXSW festival in Austin on Monday, the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, made a moving plea for tech companies to take on hate speech.

He presented hostile tweets directed at himself to “illustrate that big tech has further to go in making the internet free of hate speech.”

Khan urged companies like Facebook and Twitter to show “a stronger duty of care” so that “social-media platforms can live up to their promises to connect, unify, and democratize the sharing of information and be places where everyone feels welcomed and valued.”

By “everyone,” he means everyone who shares his point of view. Others must be banned, so as to “unify” the sharing of information.

The London mayor suggested that Facebook and Twitter remove offensive content and misinformation faster and face fines if they don’t.

Germans, whom the British once were willing to fight to the death to preserve their liberty, present the way forward:

In January, Germany began enforcing a new rule that gives social-media platforms 24 hours to decide whether something is hate speech. German police are investigating a far-right politician, Beatrix von Storch, who described Muslims as “barbarians” on Facebook.

Khan says he expects Londoners to pressure their representatives to create a similar rule.

Careful you don’t criticize Khan for trying to snuff out free speech. He is a Muslim. You don’t want to get banned for hate speech, do you?

Florida Teen Goes Berserk and Kills — With a Knife, Inspired by Islam

If the clueless high school students skipping school today to denounce the Constitution weren’t being led around by the nose by authoritarian journalists and teachers, they might demand a crackdown on the right to own knives rather than guns. Knives are easier to obtain, and when no one else is armed, they can be put to deadly effect by lunatics and Muslims:

A Florida teenager — who had previously been investigated for “alleged violent tendencies” — watched jihadist videos and read the Koran “to give him courage” before stabbing a 13-year-old boy to death and seriously injuring two others at a birthday sleepover Monday, cops said.

Corey Johnson, 17, was charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder after police said he confessed to the assault…

He was inspired to murder because the other kids allegedly offended his Muslim faith. If psychopaths can’t find a neighborhood dog to tell them when to kill, they can always fall back on the Koran.

Since the media hasn’t finished with guns yet, it is unlikely to produce any spectacles featuring righteous teenagers demanding an end to all knives.

As with Nikolas Cruz, police already knew that Johnson was a ticking bomb about to go off. But mental health is not an issue the media is interested in addressing.

Moonbat Professor Barks That Whiteness Is “Violence” and an “Existential Threat”

There must not be enough hardcore antiwhite racism at the University of Minnesota, if they feel the need to import it from other colleges:

The University of Minnesota has invited a professor dedicated to “dismantling whiteness” to speak next week on how whiteness is an “existential threat” to the United States.

The Elephant in the Room: A ‘Grown Up’ Conversation about Whiteness” will be presented by Lisa Anderson-Levy, an Anthropology professor at Beloit College whose teaching philosophy is predicated on the belief that “teaching is a political act.”

What Anderson-Levy does is political all right, but I wouldn’t call it teaching, and I certainly wouldn’t call it grown up.

During her lecture, Anderson-Levy is slated to speak on a number of issues, including “the violence of whiteness”…

Violence is so bad that it must be stopped by any means. That’s why, according to liberals, speech they don’t want to hear is “violence.” Even being white is violence. That justifies addressing it with real violence, like we are about to see on a genocidal scale in South Africa.

Speaking of real violence, in this country the vast majority of it is committed by nonwhites. That’s why the prisons are so full of them. But according to liberals, incarcerating people based on their behavior instead of in accordance with racial quotas is racist.

Anderson-Levy barks that whiteness is not only violence but also “an existential threat to social, political, and economic life in the U.S.” which “demands our immediate attention.” It is a short step from the evil nonsense spewed on college campuses to extermination camps.

Other than hating all things Caucasian, Anderson-Levy’s academic specialties are “feminist anthropology” and “activist anthropology.” She is a Moonbat of Negritude, making it easier for such a useless person to pass herself off as an educator.

The race hate and left-wing politics don’t prevent her from wallowing in wealth created by a white male capitalist:

She is also the co-leader on a $600,000 project to foster “diversity, inclusivity, and equity” at Beloit College, which was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

If Mellon, Ford, and other great men who built this country had known how their fortunes would be used, they would have burned all their money before they died.

South Africa’s Hate Bill Takes Tyranny to New Extremes

Taken to its logical conclusion, political correctness is a form of tyranny more insanely repressive than anything dreamt of by Stalin. If you doubt it, consider the hate speech law that is about to hit the country born of political correctness, post-Apartheid South Africa:

The Prevention and Combatting of Hate Crimes and Hate Speech Bill (let’s call it the Hate Bill) is currently before Cabinet, and once approved, will be tabled in Parliament.

“Hate” is already against the law in South Africa. But not like it will be.

The Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act (Equality Act) already prohibits and criminalises hate speech. The Hate Bill goes much further, however, criminalising even petty insults and hand gestures, and imposing lengthy jail terms even on first offenders.

The new bill extends the grounds for hate speech to race, gender, sex (including intersex), ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, religion, belief, culture, language, birth, disability, HIV status, nationality, gender identity, albinism, and occupation or trade.

South Africa has a constitution; Ruth Bader Ginsburg prefers it to the one she is sworn to uphold. But it may not be much defense against the Hate Bill.

The Constitution, in section 16 of the Bill of Rights, states that freedom of expression “does not extend to advocacy of hatred that is based on race, ethnicity, gender or religion, and that constitutes incitement to cause harm”.

In 2002, the Constitutional Court ruled that no law can extend the definition of hate speech beyond what it says in the Constitution.

This means that the Equality Act already contravenes the Constitution, by extending grounds for hate speech to race, gender, sex, pregnancy, marital status, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, language and birth; or anything else that could perpetuate systemic disadvantage, undermine human dignity, or adversely affect the equal enjoyment of a person’s rights and freedoms in a serious manner that is comparable to discrimination on one of the listed grounds.

That’s a big jump, from “incitement to cause harm” to “adversely affect the equal enjoyment of blah blah blah.”

But if people are going to start being sticklers and insist that laws be constitutional, the Constitution can be changed, like they are doing to allow confiscation of property from whites without compensation. If Ramaphosa et al. will steal the farm that has been in your family for generations and leave you penniless, they certainly won’t hesitate to throw you in jail for being insensitive.

The Hate Bill also explicitly criminalises not only public communication of hate speech, but also private messages, and even gestures and bodily expressions that could be interpreted as insulting. If you flip the bird at someone, you’re up on charges. If you recoil at the touch of a gay person, because they are gay, you’re guilty of hate speech. If you make an expression of disgust at a police officer, it’s off to jail you go.

And jail it will be. The Hate Bill imposes extraordinarily harsh penalties upon offenders. A first-time hate speech offender could get a fine, three years in prison, or both. A second-time offender could face ten years in prison.

Basic liberty or “social justice.” Take your pick; you can’t have both.

The Truth About Broken Britain

Don’t take the authoritarian treatment of countermoonbats Lauren Southern, Martin Sellner, and Brittany Pettibone — all of whom were temporarily detained and denied entrance to the country because of their political views — as evidence that Britain discriminates against extremists. The problem with Southern and the others is that they are not extremists. If they go over the top and convert to Islam, they will be welcomed with open arms:

Just because they still have elections in Britain (for now) does not mean it is still a free country. The New Britons must be delighted that they do not have to wait until they have achieved a demographic majority to see sharia law imposed. Criticizing Islam and Islamization is already effectively against the law.

China, Iran Demand We Surrender Right to Bear Arms

In terms of the sheer number of its own citizens it has killed, China’s communist regime is the most tyrannical that has ever existed. Mao’s body count dwarfed even Stalin’s. Unlike Russia, China never cast off communist rule; Mao is thankfully dead, but the same government is in power. Astonishingly, this regime preaches to America about human rights:

A Chinese state-run newspaper said in a recent editorial that the United States should learn from China and restrict civilian gun ownership, Reuters recently reported.

The editorial, called “China Can Offer Lessons to U.S. in Protecting Human Rights,” ran in the Global Times newspaper on Feb. 22, just over a week after the Parkland shooting in Florida where 17 students and staff were killed.

“There is an urgent need for the U.S. to impose harsh restrictions on gun purchases nowadays,” the editorial said.

The terrorist regime in Iran — which has been in a de facto state of war against the USA since 1979 — concurs that we must give up our fundamental right of self-defense. Internal enemies of American civilization think so too.

With that, we could rest our case in favor of the Constitution.

Eminem Contra the Constitution

Eminem is really losing it. Not only is he pandering more shamelessly than ever in a desperate attempt to stay relevant among teenyboppers, he can’t even make his raps rhyme. Freestyle foolishness from the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Inglewood, where his performance was introduced by one of the media-propelled teenage tyrants from Parkland:

This whole country is going nuts, and the NRA is in our way
They’re responsible for this whole production
They hold the strings, they control the puppet
And they threaten to take donor bucks
So they know the government won’t do nothing and no one’s budging
Gun owners clutching their loaded weapons
They love their guns more than our children

That guns are used far more often to defend households, including the children in them, than by unincarcerated maniacs to shoot up schools ought to occur even to someone in Emimem’s IQ range. But you can’t blame him for wanting to shift the focus from where it belongs: on mental health and moral depravity. This is a guy who performs a graphic, obscenity-laced song about raping and murdering his mother.

Eminem pours pure depravity into the heads of impressionable children. In his own way, he has helped to create the sick state of affairs that makes school shootings a problem. America has had guns from the beginning. For as long as we have had a country, we have had the Constitution that the NRA exists to defend. We didn’t always have school shootings though, and we also didn’t have a culture that featured sickos like Marshall Mathers.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Accuses Energy Companies of Murder, Threatens Lawfare

Never go full moonbat. It isn’t dignified. Arnold Schwarzenegger has gone full moonbat:

Schwarzenegger’s next mission: taking oil companies to court “for knowingly killing people all over the world.”

He is in talks with private law firms to launch a lawfare campaign against the people who keep our homes warm, make our cars go, keep the lights on, allow manufacturing and refrigeration, et cetera.

“This is no different from the smoking issue. The tobacco industry knew for years and years and years and decades, that smoking would kill people, would harm people and create cancer, and were hiding that fact from the people and denied it. Then eventually they were taken to court and had to pay hundreds of millions of dollars because of that,” Schwarzenegger said. “The oil companies knew from 1959 on, they did their own study that there would be global warming happening because of fossil fuels, and on top of it that it would be risky for people’s lives, that it would kill.”

The politically driven theory of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming that his raving rests upon can easily be debunked by comparing rising CO2 levels with essentially flat global temperatures.

Ahnold is right that this is similar to the smoking issue, whereby greedy lawyers and bureaucrats shook down the tobacco industry for $zillions. But there is a major difference: the fossil fuel industry is not harmful to our health; on the contrary, it is indispensable.

Imagine the misery that would ensue if every demonized fossil fuel company were sued out of existence overnight. The world economy would collapse. Most humans would be dead within a few years.

Do-gooder looters are going straight for the jugular now. They are no longer a pest; they are a menace.

The former Governator’s rhetoric is farther over the top than any of his action movies:

“I don’t think there’s any difference: If you walk into a room and you know you’re going to kill someone, it’s first degree murder; I think it’s the same thing with the oil companies.”

Then he ought to turn himself in for murder one. He used to brag about driving a hummer:

According to his ideology, it would have saved lives if he had used his Hummer for his daily commute as Governor — rather than taking a private jet:

Former GOP California governor and global warming activist Arnold Schwarzenegger came under fire for his near-daily private jet commute from his Brentwood [Los Angeles] home to the governor’s mansion in Sacramento. “The governor’s Gulf-stream jet does nearly as much damage to the environment in one hour as a small car does in a year,” the Los Angeles Times reported in 2008.

Too bad we can’t fuel the economy with B.S. Moonbats like Arnold Schwarzenegger could provide an endless supply.
