What generations created, the Left destroys. There are few productive and noble institutions in America that the Left has not hurt or attempted to hurt. But while the Left destroys a great deal, it constructs almost nothing (outside of government agencies, laws, and lawsuits). - Dennis Prager

Elder Abuse

Meanwhile, as his handlers dispatch a squad to toss the Mar-a-Lago home of his political opponent banana republic style, our supposed leader tries and fails to get his clothes on without help:

Someone should sic Adult Protective Services on “Dr” Jill and get Creepy Joe into a home for mentally disabled corruptocrats where he can drool on himself in peace. At this point in our descent into tyranny, we need to see the faces of whoever is really in charge.

Moonbats Denounce Hetrification

It started with demands for tolerance. Then came forced mainstreaming. Now the demand is for intolerance. Two college professors writing in the Boston Globe denounce “hetrification,” which occurs when heterosexuals dare show their faces in homosexual “spaces,” as when bachelorette parties take place at gay bars.

We call this process “hetrification.” Like gentrification, hetrification occurs when people feel privileged to take over the spaces of others.

The entire town of Provincetown, Massachusetts is a “gay space” — a contemporary version of Sodom, where no child should ever set foot.

All correctly thinking liberals already hate “gentrification,” which occurs when white people raise property values in slums by starting businesses and creating jobs. Hetrification is even worse:

Many gay and lesbian spaces were the result of white gentrification of neighborhoods that were primarily Black and Latinx. But hetrification, unlike gentrification, is an appropriation not just of space, but of culture.

In the classroom version, this would be the part where they scrawl on the blackboard “hetrification = gentrification + cultural appropriation + heteronormativity” so that students going into decades of debt to help taxpayers finance such pearls of wisdom can scribble notes.

Hetrification weaponizes heteronormativity and breaks down queer spaces. Even though hetrifiers only temporarily invade queer spaces, the incessant visitation of heteronormative misconduct slowly diminishes the integrity of the space.

The last thing a liberal would want is to diminish the integrity of queer spaces.

Hetrifiers who take part in bachelorette parties receive harsh rebuke for the thoughtcrime of not believing that homosexuals are oppressed:

This level of ignorance about the actual state of affairs for LGBTQ+ populations in the United States was reminiscent of white Americans insisting racism was over once we had elected a Black man as president.

As the Obama presidency proved, blacks will always be oppressed, no matter how much favoritism is heaped upon them, so long as their phony oppression can be leveraged to achieve power. The same goes for our allegedly oppressed LGBT overlords.

To come into queer spaces and actually believe that we live in a post-homophobic world is a kind of hostile occupation. … [Q]ueers are faced with tolerating the heterosexual gaze or not showing up at all. … Hetrification will destroy queer spaces and maybe even queer culture itself.

At least they end on a note of hope.

Gay Couple Use Adopted Kids to Make Porno Movies

As the LGBT community achieves dominance over our decaying society, schools are not the only places children are subjected to grooming. By agreeing to homosexual adoption, we agree to this:

Two Georgia men have been arrested after police said they disrupted an operation that was creating child pornography using adopted children.

Anyone naïve enough to be surprised by this should refrain from voting and commenting on social issues.

During the July 28 raid, two children were taken from the house, and a search warrant was executed, the post said. WSB-TV identified the children as brothers.

No doubt the incest angle adds extra zest for those who identify as sexually diverse.

[E]vidence was amassed that two adult males who were the adoptive fathers of two children in the homes were engaging in sexual abuse of the children and recording the abuse on video.

William Dale Zulock, 32, and Zachary Jacoby Zulock, 35, who lived in the home, were subsequently arrested.

It appears the Zulocks are “married” to each other. Their porno studio was a family business, in accordance with the woke transformation of the concept of “family.”

The two Zulocks are facing child sex crime charges that include aggravated child molestation and sexual exploitation of a child and enticing a child for indecent purposes, according to WSB.

It is unclear why the sexual exploitation of a child and enticing a child for indecent purposes charges do not apply to every schoolteacher who pushes homosexuality and transsexuality on children.

William Zulock faces an additional charge of child molestation.

The sheriff’s office said the two children were taken into custody and are now safe.

Until it comes time to send them to school.

Global Warming Is Racist

The beauty of modern liberal ideology is that everything in the universe fits into its core principle that blacks are oppressed. All bad things are aspects of black oppression — even global warming:

A letter from New York City Department of health officials warned medical workers…

…that extreme heat “is the deadliest type of extreme weather” and that black people are twice as likely to die from heat stroke as white people in the Big Apple.

“Cold weather is 20 times as deadly as hot weather” admit even the libs at USA Today. But that only applies to the real world, not the realm of pure moonbattery inhabited by the kooks running NYC.

“Structural racism and the resulting social and economic inequities” are the reasons that heat affects blacks more than whites, according to ideologically deranged Health Department bureaurats.

Historically redlined neighborhoods across the country that are currently home to a large black population can be 13 degrees hotter than majority of white neighborhoods, a 2020 study found.

The Experts are expert at proving whatever needs to be proven. That’s how government funding is acquired.

Since the natural fluctuation of the climate that leftists have exploited to justify wasteful spending and increase their power affects sacred blacks worse than the less worthy white race, it would be racist not to grant Democrats the total control required to take charge of the planet’s thermostat.

Federal Mental Health Program Makes People Crazier

As moonbattery causes the wheels to come off civilization, psychos become ever more abundant. None of them is so nuts that help from Big Government can’t mess them up worse:

In 2014, President Obama launched the Now Is the Time Initiative, which focused on mental health. According to The Mental Health First Aid website, the program received $15 million in federal grants to launch Mental Health First Aid programs in classrooms. One year later, Obama gave the organization another $15 million and a commitment to annually fund the program.

From such modest acorns grow the mighty oaks of vast federal bureaucracies.

The point was to find and treat budding maniacs before they go off the rails and shoot up schools. It has worked as well as any other government program. That is to say, it has wasted taxpayer money while worsening the problem it was supposed to solve:

In a report by the Manhattan Institute, MHFA studies’ results were collected and put into a table showing the program’s ineffectiveness. … The results varied between cases, but all of them showed detrimental results as a consequence of MHFA programs.

In addition to making crazy kids crazier, MHFA may also result in sane kids being treated as if they were crazy.

MHFA also creates an overdiagnosis dilemma: those who receive training are more likely to be on alert for signs of mental illness. This may lead to perfectly healthy students who merely exhibit occasional symptoms of mental distress receiving unnecessary or even harmful treatments that could have gone to an in-need student.

If we really want to address the mental health crisis, we need to reject leftism in favor of the stable, traditional society that it seeks to destroy.

How the IRS Spends the Money Dems Give It

As part of its latest hyperinflationary tax-and-spend blowout, the Party of Big Government is spending a staggering $80 BILLION to supersize the IRS, the better to separate us from the wealth we create. A story from June indicates how the politicized and weaponized IRS will spend our money.

According to Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the IRS spent about $700,000 on ammunition in March through May of this year.

Gaetz described the ammunition acquisition as “bizarre.” …

He painted a dire scenario where the government reduces ammunition production “and, on the other hand, [soaks] up the supply of it.”

If the insolently misnamed “Inflation Reduction Act” becomes law, the IRS will be in a position to really stock up on ammo.

Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee just passed an “assault weapons” bill that infringes on our Constitutional right to bear arms by banning not only America’s rifle but also many pistols and shotguns.

People who do not mean you well are disarming you while arming themselves to the teeth. This is ominous, to put it mildly.

If letting the likes of Biden take power leads to Americans machine-gunned into trenches, it won’t be as if we couldn’t see it coming. But don’t worry; they will only shoot racists and climate deniers.

Call for “Action” Against Mount Rushmore

The purpose of ESPN is to present leftism in the context of sports entertainment, so as to brainwash people who have no interest in politics. An audience is easier to manipulate when it expects only to be entertained, not to be indoctrinated. The moonbattery pushed by ESPN does not attempt to win arguments, but only to present a worldview that the audience is implicitly expected to share. This is the worldview of our liberal ruling class. It is hostile to American civilization, which progressives are in the process of eradicating.

Mount Rushmore is one of America’s most iconic monuments, featuring four of our greatest presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt. Liberals want these giants erased, so as to replace them with a new class of heroes, such as George Floyd, who will be apt representatives of the country they wish to create where America used to be.

To that end, ESPN’s Jalen Rose calls for the very words “Mount Rushmore” to be struck from the Newspeak Dictionary as unspeakable, and for his audience to “take action” against the monument:

There could be no more profound an enemy than we face in politically correct liberals. They want not only to conquer and destroy America, but to twist, defile, and erase its history, so that it will be as if our nation never existed. Compared to Jalen Rose and the liberal ruling class that provides him with a megaphone, our worst foreign adversaries are friends.

Lib Media Blames White House Lightning on Global Warming

After a massive six-stroke flash of lightning struck near the White House, I joked that liberals would blame it on “climate change.” Turns out it was not a joke but an accurate prediction.

Roto-Reuters “reports,” presumably with a straight face:

Scientists say that climate change is increasing the likelihood of lightning strikes across the United States, after lightning struck at a square near the White House, leaving three people dead and one other in critical condition.

The implication is that the unfortunate victims would still be alive and healthy if only taxes were high enough and our standard of living low enough.

All things must be shoehorned into progressives’ cramped little ideology. Lightning is not racist or homophobic; therefore, it must be caused by climate change — i.e., by our failure to submit to the hand-to-mouth totalitarian misery leftists dream of inflicting in the name of the weather.

Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be very carefully used and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, and one more safeguard against tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible. - Hubert H.

LA: A Choice Between Adam Schiff and Maebe A. Girl

The nice thing about Democracy is that it offers a choice. In Los Angeles, the choice is between the odious Adam Schiff and a guy calling himself Maebe A. Girl:

G. “Maebe A. Girl” Pudlo, a progressive Democrat and drag queen who identifies as transgender non-binary, is challenging Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California during the 2022 election.

Girl received a bit less than 13% of the primary vote, coming in a distant second to Schiff who earned more than 62% — the two will face off during the general election later this year.

Girl wants to be a “voice for trans people.” The liberal establishment aggressively promotes their agenda at everyone else’s expense, but too much is never enough when it comes to favoritism for mentally ill sexual deviants.

He’s right about this much:

“I think that if there’s any place where a progressive, especially a trans nonbinary person can get elected, it’s Los Angeles.”

Or any other suppurating pustule of a city where moonbats have established cultural hegemony.

His specific demands include that men be allowed to play in women’s sports and that they be let into private facilities intended for women only such as restrooms and locker rooms. Many other Democrats have been making these same demands, but usually not while dressed as an insultingly grotesque parody of a woman.

“Healthcare, housing, and education are all human rights,” squawks Girl. That is, forcing other people to pay for them is a human right. He wants to abolish US Immigration and Customs Enforcement so that taxpayers can furnish these goodies gratis to the entire planet.

His attitudes place him in the Democrat mainstream. There is no reason to believe that Mr Girl would be any worse that Adam Schiff — who may be the next Speaker of the House if he is reelected.

New York City Succumbs to Savagery

Due to moonbat rule, crime is effectively legal in New York City, which is no longer part of the civilized world.

City Journal has the stats to document a great city’s decline:

The city is currently seeing a 42 percent rise in petit larceny, 40 percent rise in robbery, and a nearly 50 percent rise in grand larceny since this time last year. …

Nearly a decade ago, 63 percent of cases disposed by the Manhattan DA’s office resulted in convictions, and only 12 percent ended in dismissals. Those proportions are now flipped: so far this year, only a third of disposed cases ended in convictions, and nearly half were dismissed. …

In 2013 (the earliest data readily available), convictions were secured for 61,762 Manhattan cases. More than halfway through 2022, the county has managed only 6,902 convictions. These decreases are even more astounding for lower-level crimes. In 2013—when the city had about 25 percent fewer violation offenses than today—Manhattan secured 7,528 convictions for disposed infraction/violation cases. This year, it has gotten 16.

It has gotten this bad with pro-criminal Soros-appointed Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg on the job only since January. Bragg’s mission is to splash gasoline on the flames:

Last January he announced, as his first order of business, that robbing a store with a dangerous weapon would no longer be charged as a felony, only as a misdemeanor—a category of cases for which convictions over the past 11 years fell by over 90 percent.

Rudy Giuliani worked wonders to clean up the mess liberals had made of New York when he took over as mayor in 1994. But the decay is so deep at this point that someone like Giuliani would stand no chance of getting elected. Those who have not had the good sense to escape New York choose tasteless jokes like Bill de Blasio and Eric Adams instead.

At least we can learn from this tragedy. Ever wonder how certain segments of society would behave if not compelled by law to act with civility? Now we know.

Once it’s clear that there are no criminal justice guardrails in effect, those restrained by neither family nor community norms feel emboldened to commit the worst kinds of violent acts for even trivial causes.

If we were all civilized, we would hardly need the police. But we live among savages. When liberals screech about defunding and abolishing police, they are demanding that civilized people to be marginalized in favor of people like these, whose pretext for violence was a $1.75 charge for dipping sauce:
