The Word That Is a Lie: Homophobia

Moonbattery corrupts everything, including language. For example, LGBT militants and their fellow travelers have created a word that seems to mean one thing but is used to mean another. Homophobia implies a morbid, irrational fear of homosexuals. What it actually means is “resistance to the LGBT agenda.” Progressives try to marginalize this resistance by associating it with psychiatric disorders. Michael Voris takes objection:

London Fashion Week Men’s Panders to Liberal Agenda

To glimpse a future in which moonbats are triumphant, turn to the world of high fashion. London Fashion Week Men’s is described as a “fashion incubator” that “has helped many of the current generation of British designers.” It wrapped up Monday, confirming that the degenerate moonbattery seeping like a sea of slime out of the fashion industry exceeds any mess Servepro could handle:

Chinese designer Xander Zhou’s collection featured a male model with a fake bump on show, wearing jeans and a white t-shirt reading “New World Baby”.

“We’re prepared to welcome a future of male pregnancy,” the designer said in an Instagram post.

Speaking of the scientifically improbable, the show also promoted the global warming hoax:

Christopher Raeburn, a specialist in environmentally conscious fashion, used NASA images showing melting ice caps to create a modern and socially engaged collection entitled “REACT NOW”.

The main theme appeared to be the demasculinization that has been such a prominent item on the liberal agenda lately.

Male models wearing evening dresses, mini-skirts or opting to go bare-chested featured heavily.

A heavily-applauded design saw transsexual model Munroe Bergdorf strut the catwalk dressed only in a pair of black boots and a long, torn t-shirt with the words “High concept character”.

The outfits also featured “a touch of hippie sensibility — jackets worn with shorts and flower chains.” This is what they would have men wear.

Unless you want the Western world to look like a London fashion show, resist moonbattery at every opportunity.

Alan Dershowitz Laments Radicalization of ACLU

Even Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor, a Democrat, and a former American Civil Liberties Union board member, is alarmed at the increasing radicalism of the ACLU, an organization that is dropping the pretense of concern for liberties to overtly promote a hard left agenda:

The final nail in its coffin was the announcement that, for the first time in its history, the ACLU would become involved in partisan electoral politics, supporting candidates, referenda and other agenda-driven political goals.

The headline in the June 8 edition of the New Yorker tells it all: “The ACLU is getting involved in elections — and reinventing itself for the Trump era.” The article continues: “In this midterm year, however, as progressive groups have mushroomed and grown more active, and as liberal billionaires such as Howard Schultz and Tom Steyer have begun to imagine themselves as political heroes and eye presidential runs, the ACLU, itself newly flush, has begun to move in step with the times. For the first time in its history, the ACLU is taking an active role in elections. The group has plans to spend more than 25 million dollars on races and ballot initiatives by Election Day, in November.”

The ACLU won’t just support Democrats, which it used to avoid doing overtly. It will throw its weight behind the most malevolent progressive kooks it can find. Dershowitz laments that the “center-left is losing its influence in organizations like the ACLU.”

Past support for the free speech rights of Nazis and the KKK is for show. These fringe elements are going nowhere, so it costs nothing to defend them. The purpose was to allow the ACLU to pose as a nonpartisan champion of liberty. That pose is so profoundly in conflict with the ACLU’s leftist agenda that it now must go out the window.

Only 7% of South African Cities Are Well Functioning

The other day we learned that less than 1% of hospitals and clinics could pass inspection in the rainbow utopia of South Africa. Fortunately, municipalities function far better than health facilities under black rule. According to a recent Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) assessment of South African cities,

– only 7% of the country’s municipalities are well-functioning;
– 31% are reasonabl[y] functioning;
– 31% are almost dysfunctional; and
– 31% are completely dysfunctional.

At least CoGTA Minister Zweli Mkhize has a plan:

Mkhize said while CoGTA was attending to most challenges facing municipalities – such as fighting corruption, political infighting, hiring of qualified professionals and financial management – business sector must support government through their investment which must be beyond Corporate Social Investment (CSI) to achieve inclusive growth.

So long as money in private hands still exists, the solution to every problem is obvious.

Have faith in South Africa’s Affirmative Action bureaucracy. It will get that 7% down to zero in no time.

Is Catholic Church Moving Toward Accepting Homosexuality?

The fallacy is so transparent, it could only work on those who want to be duped so as to have an excuse to go along with the herd. People are conflated with the way they behave. You must approve of homosexual behavior or you are a “hater” who won’t accept that gays are people too. The same idiot logic could be used to compel us to accept any behavior: rape, murder, even voting for Democrats. Yet under the progressive influence of Pope Francis, the Catholic church may be ready to go along with it:

Pope Francis will join the Aug. 21-26 World Meeting of Families for the last two days and preside over the final Mass in Dublin.

Organizers on Monday unveiled the pastoral program leading up to Francis’ arrival, and it includes some surprising entries. Perhaps none is more surprising than the inclusion of the Rev. James Martin, an American Jesuit scheduled to deliver a presentation on welcoming LGBT Catholics and their families into parishes.

Martin is a controversial figure who has had talks canceled in the USA over his crusade to get the church to accept homosexuality — which entails rejecting the Bible.

Martin told The Associated Press it was “immensely significant” that a Vatican-backed meeting would include his presentation, saying it showed “that LGBT Catholics and their parents are an important part of our church.”

It is significant all right. It is also significant that this is taking place in Ireland, a historically staunchly Catholic country that now embraces abortion.

In related news,

The results of a lengthy probe into the handling of sexual abuse claims by Roman Catholic dioceses throughout Pennsylvania, which victim advocates say will be the biggest and most exhaustive ever by a U.S. state, could be made public within weeks.

They are wise to wrap this up so as to clear the deck for new probes into fresh abuses. Although it is not emphasized in the media, the sacerdotal sexual abuse scandals are a product of the homosexual infiltration of the priesthood, to which it appears the church doors may be flung wide open.

Melinda Gates Wants to Apply Affirmative Action to Venture Capitalism

The only reason the poisonous nonsense rattling around in the hollow skull of Melinda Gates might be considered relevant is that she is married to a very successful white guy whose vast fortune could be used for great good or ill. Yet she hates successful white guys so much that she wants to apply Affirmative Action to venture capitalism:

With her husband’s billions, Mrs. Gates announced her intention to venture into funding start-up companies that are likely to fail.

In an interview with Fortune Magazine, Gates “bashed ‘white guys,’” and vowed to favor women and people of color in her investment choices.

Using pigment and gender as criteria in allocating her abundant resources is hardly a prudent investment strategy.

Why not pile up Bill Gates’ money into a gigantic mound and have a bonfire? It wouldn’t be any more wasteful, irresponsible, or moronic. But at least this application of Affirmative Action is unlikely to cause planes to crash.

Weirdo Set Old Glory on Fire at Philadelphia Homosexual Spectacle

When militant sexual deviants shriek about “pride,” they don’t mean the kind of pride you would take in your country. At a Philadelphia homosexual pride spectacle on Sunday, a purple-haired freakazoid set Old Glory on fire:

Police say 18-year-old Ryan Segin of Woodbine, New Jersey attempted to burn the flag while in a crowd at the parade.

She was charged with arson-attempt to commit, causing/risking a catastrophe, recklessly endangering another person and related offenses.

The media calls the moonbat “she,” so I assume it’s a guy. But then, its first name is Ryan, so maybe it really is female. Have a look and take your own guess.

Jordan Peterson: Dangerous People Are Teaching Your Kids

The nihilistic hippies of the 1960s never left college campuses; they just graduated from students to teachers and educrats. Now they exploit their position to advance a destructive not to mention demented agenda, featuring the cultural Marxist unholy trinity of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Free speech, the free market, and individuality are relentlessly attacked. This does not pave a road toward a future worth having. Jordan Peterson sounds the alarm:

Affirmative Action for Air Traffic Controllers

Affirmative Action moonbattery won’t just cheat you out of a job; it could cheat you out of your life. Insanity left over from the Obama Administration continues to risk our lives by discriminating against more qualified air traffic controllers.

There are thousands of planes flying over the USA at any given time. Crashes near airports would occur constantly if not for the competence of air traffic controllers.

However, the Obama Administration had priorities other than public safety:

Michael Pearson, an attorney and a former air-traffic controller, is suing the FAA over the Obama “diversity” program. He explained to the Fox News Channel’s Carlson last week that under pressure from Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Push Coalition, a group within the FAA, including the human-resources department and the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees, “determined that the workforce was too white.”

To correct this supposed problem, 2,600 students were purged from the Collegiate Training Initiative, which prepares people for careers as air traffic controllers. A requirement was imposed that applicants for the job complete a “biographical questionnaire,” the purpose of which is to help weed out the most deserving candidates.

Remarkably, factors such as being unemployed and doing poorly in science in high school are weighed higher than having extensive air-traffic-control knowledge and being a licensed pilot.

That is, candidates are specifically rewarded for being less qualified. That ought to cure the whiteness problem.

Stay tuned for the next Democratic administration, which may grow frustrated with the failure of antiwhite discrimination in medical school admissions to achieve equity in the medical profession and impose Affirmative Action directly — with predictable results.

Next from Germany: Government-Funded Feminist Pornography

German bureauweenies must be running low on ways to waste the excessive loot they expropriate from taxpayers. They plan to resort to government-funded feminist pornography.

As usual, the waste is justified in the name of moonbattery. The idea is to “combat sexist stereotypes.”

The material, which would include ‘fat, skinny, young and old people’ will be available on the websites of public broadcasters ARD and ZDF, if the idea goes ahead. …

In the proposal, the [Social Democratic Party] wrote: ‘Mainstream porn generally shows sexist and racial stereotypes in which consent is not a theme and certain “optimal” body types are made as standard. … everything seems to work right away, there is no communication between the performers, no trying out, failure…’

But soon, thanks to Big Government, German porn addicts can become woke by watching fat old people try to have sex and fail.

Been there, done that, scoffs the canary in the coalmine of European moonbattery:

The idea might have been inspired by Sweden, where in 2009 the state film institute spent £44,813 financing Dirty Diaries, a series of short porn films produced by female film artists.

Considering the corrosive effect pornography has on society, the Germans and Swedes might have stumbled onto something. Banning porn would just drive it underground. Having the State produce it would be far more effective in preventing people from indulging in it, because 5 minutes of government-issued feminist pornography might cure even horny teenagers of ever wanting to look at the filthy stuff again.

Australian Fined $200 for Cracking Open a Beer While Fishing

When Australians gave up their guns, they gave up period, signaling to Big Government that they will submit to any indignity, even being fined $200 for cracking open a beer while fishing:

Doug Vickery, 36, was fishing for octopus at Two Rocks Marina [Thursday], when he said he was approached by police at the rock wall.

The officers breathalysed him and checked his license, before slapping him with a $200 fine under the Liquor Act for having an open beer.

They caught him thanks to CCTV from a nearby fishing club. Big Brother is always watching.

This happened in the Perth area, where recently a motorcyclist was fined $550 for loosening his helmet strap after being pulled over despite not speeding. Crocodile Dundee would not recognize the place, thanks to runaway statism.

Jack Dorsey Is Remorseful for Eating at Chick-fil-A

To get an idea of how comically intolerant progressives tend to be, consider that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey — a confirmed moonbat who has expressed enthusiasm for the fantasy of Democrats crushing their opposition in a second civil war — is getting castigated for eating at Chick-fil-A.

Former CNN propagandist Soledad O’Brien was among those who have denounced Dorsey for this violation of political correctness. She emphasized the compound crime of eating the forbidden food during homosexual “pride” month.

Why does eating tasty chicken sandwiches at Chick-fil-A make you a bad person?

At issue was Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s 2012 support for defining marriage as between a man and a woman, which he described as “the biblical definition of a family.”

Barack Obama himself — the Moonbat Messiah — did not support the blasphemous concept of homosexual marriage until that same year.

Throughout human history, it is unlikely that more than one person in a million did not regard marriage as something that can only take place between men and women. But as progressives learned from using 1984 as an instruction manual, those who control the past control the future. That’s why liberals are constantly purging the past of thought criminals — selectively, of course; Obama is safe from purges.

That the people running Chick-fil-A no doubt still believe in the sanctity of marriage places the company beyond the pale, so that it can serve as a rallying point for liberal hatred and intolerance.

Citing the importance of diverse opinion, Dorsey boldly stood up to the social media lynch mob. Just kidding, of course. Here’s how he reacted:

“You’re right,” Dorsey conceded. “Completely forgot about their background.”

He had better grovel for forgiveness. After Obama’s weaponized IRS leaked the information that Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich had privately donated money to an organization defending marriage, Eich was fired.

Try to imagine losing your job because you privately donated money to an organization that promotes sexual perversion.

Admission That Iran Facilitated 9/11 Provides Perspective on Obama’s Collusion

The admission that Iran facilitated 9/11 provides context for Barack Obama’s pandering to America’s most vociferous enemy, which he took to perfidious extremes:

• He threw cold water on an uprising against the regime in 2009, in stark contrast to his avid support for the revolution in Egypt that replaced U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak with our vehement enemy the Muslim Brotherhood.

• He illegally sent the ayatollahs pallets of cash as a reward for kidnapping Americans.

• His nuclear deal with Iran was an abomination that freed up $150 billion for Iran to spend on its terror war against the West.

• He allowed the terror group Hezbollah to smuggle cocaine into the USA at the request of Iran.

• While brazenly lying to the public about it, he tried to get U.S. banks to launder money for Iran in violation of sanctions.

• His administration secretly assured European countries that there would be no consequences if they violated sanctions too.

Robert Spencer is correct when he writes, “In a sane political environment, Barack Obama would be tried for treason.” After all, Iran has been at war with the USA since 1979; this war has claimed numerous American casualties through the years.

Now Iranian officials admit that Iran facilitated 9/11 by assisting al Qaeda:

Mohammad-Javad Larijani, an international affairs assistant in the Iran’s judiciary, disclosed in Farsi-language remarks broadcast on Iran’s state-controlled television that Iranian intelligence officials secretly helped provide the al Qaeda attackers with passage and gave them refuge in the Islamic Republic, according to an English translation published by Al Arabiya. …

The remarks represent the first time senior Iranian officials have publicly admitted to aiding al Qaeda and playing a direct role in facilitating the 9/11 attacks.

The 9/11 Commission had already concluded that Iran helped bring about the deadliest terror attack in U.S. history. Now this has been confirmed, as has Obama’s status as our worst president.

Robert Mueller has had little luck finding collusion with our rival Russia. Maybe Washington should investigate a more serious matter: collusion with our sworn enemy Iran.

Teacher Attests to Effect of Demographic Transformation on Austrian Schools

Demographic transformation has reduced schools in places like Chicago to babysitting facilities where no one is really expected to learn, because the best teachers can hope for is to keep violence at a minimum while educrats wait for the kids to be old enough to dump into the lap of the welfare state. The same goes in Europe. Teacher Susanne Wiesinger — like most teachers, a leftist by political background — couldn’t help but be alarmed. Admitting that there is a problem got her fired after teaching in Austria’s largest school district Wien-Favoriten for 25 years:

In the future, Austrian schools won’t fuss with irrelevant subjects like science and math. The schools will be replaced with madrassahs, where kids will rock to and fro like mental patients as they recite sociopathic nonsense from the Koran. It won’t matter that they can’t speak German because the Koran was written in Arabic.

Watch Justin Trudeau’s False Eyebrows Malfunction During News Conference

What kind of guy would wear false eyebrows? A metrosexual moonbat like Justin Trudeau:

Looks like this is for real. For confirmation, go to 27:00 of the video of Trudeau holding a joint news conference with Emmanuel Macron at Canada’s CPAC (Cable Public Affairs Channel) website.

Maybe an advisor told him that bushy eyebrows would make him look more virile, so that Trump wouldn’t push him around.

With all the loot Canada’s progressive government expropriates from taxpayers, you would think Trudeau could afford glue that can hold his phony eyebrows in place.

It makes you wonder what else about the boy prime minister is fake. Probably everything.

Why Bill Maher Roots for Recession

Liberals don’t mind if America is destroyed, so long as they get to rule over the ruins. This attitude has driven immigration and welfare policy, with catastrophic results. At least Bill Maher is up front about the prevailing point of view on the left:

“I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point, and by the way, I’m hoping for it because I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy,” Maher said. “So please, bring on the recession.”

Let that be a consolation to you, if the economy does crater again like it did in 2008, remaining stagnant thereafter until Obama finally left office. You may lose your job and your house, but at least your misery will make zillionaire leftists like Bill Maher happy.
