African Invaders Complain That Americans Speak English

On Tuesday some of the numberless hordes of illegal aliens from Africa pouring into New York City swamped the area around City Hall and aired their belligerent grievances. As noted at the time:

Their dissatisfaction will be easy for Democrats to weaponize against the native population the newcomers have been imported to displace.

What could they possibly have to complain about, considering they have invaded our country in contravention of our laws, yet instead of being kicked out are provided with free food, housing, and even prepaid debit cards? For one thing, we keep speaking English instead of learning Africa’s many languages:

Via Modernity:

At another point in the hearing migrants began complaining about the free food and housing they have been provided, saying it isn’t good enough.

They described the situation as “unacceptable,” and “shameful,” and even calling New York City “Anti-African, racist and Xeonophobic,” charging that the council is “responsible for this pain and suffering” that will affect migrants “for generations to come.”

They will certainly be dissatisfied for generations to come, making it easy for the liberal establishment to find participants when it is considered politically expedient to launch another wave of race riots.

Slippery Slope Summarized

Their incremental strategy is right there in the word “progressive.” Yet in an attempt to prevent us from defending ourselves against it, progressives sneer that the slippery slope is a fallacy. This guy proves in a few seconds that it is not:

What’s next, subject your children to horrific sex change procedures or they will be confiscated and you will face arrest? No; Not the Bee reminds us that this milestone has already been passed.

Welcome Home Scranton Joe

As part of the absurd pretense that he somehow represents the regular Americans that his regime has been eradicating through open borders, socialism, and the DEI ideology of the liberal elite, the figurehead of our degenerate ruling class presents himself as “Scranton Joe,” on the grounds that he happens to have been born in the working class town before moving to Delaware. LANGUAGE ALERT — here’s how Biden is welcomed by the actual residents of Scranton:

Biden’s visit to Scranton was intended to contrast his middle class background with Trump’s privileged upbringing. Marxists forget that in America, it isn’t where you start; it’s where you end up.

Creepy Joe represents the decadent rich. The wealthiest have grown wealthier with him in office, whereas the rest of us have been incrementally impoverished by inflation. In contrast, Trump represents resistance to their misrule, which is why they hate him so much.

Why NPR Must Be Immediately Defunded

NPR has always been moonbatty, often to the point of inducing nausea, but in recent years it has gone overboard into hardcore leftism. Uri Berliner worked there for a quarter of a century. He was recently driven out for publicly noticing the extreme bias of what is supposed to be an objective news outlet:

The change, he said, started with the election of Donald Trump. He described how the programming relentlessly pushed the Russian-collusion story only to leave it largely unmentioned once the Mueller report did not establish collusion; how NPR consciously refused to cover the Hunter Biden laptop story in the runup to the 2020 election; and how during Covid, its journalists portrayed the lab-leak theory as having been debunked when it had not been.

There is a thin line between spinning and lying. NPR crosses it on behalf of a profoundly destructive ideology.

In the wake of the George Floyd killing and the ensuing riots, NPR followed other institutions in imposing a DEI framework organization-wide.

NPR pushed its trademark flakiness to new extremes with “affinity groups”…

… including “MGIPOC (Marginalized Genders and Intersex People of Color mentorship program); Mi Gente (Latinx employees at NPR); NPR Noir (black employees at NPR); Southwest Asians and North Africans at NPR; Ummah (for Muslim-identifying employees); Women, Gender-Expansive, and Transgender People in Technology Throughout Public Media; Khevre (Jewish heritage and culture at NPR); and NPR Pride (LGBTQIA employees at NPR).”

Imagine expecting accurate coverage from this collective of kooks.

NPR regards identity group diversity as its “North Star.” As for viewpoint diversity,

When Berliner did a search of voter-registration records of editorial employees of the D.C. newsroom, he found 87 Democrats and zero Republicans.

They say a fish rots from the head. The head of NPR is CEO Katherine Maher:

“I do wish Hillary wouldn’t use the language of ‘boy and girl,’” she lamented in 2016, “it’s erasing language for non-binary people.” In 2020, she defended rioters, posting, “I mean, sure, looting is counterproductive. But it’s hard to be mad about protests not prioritizing the private property of a system of oppression founded on treating people’s ancestors as private property.” She also wrote, “Lots of jokes about leaving the US, and I get it. But as someone with cis white mobility privilege, I’m thinking I’m staying and investing in ridding ourselves of this spectre of tyranny.”

That must be a reference to Donald Trump, whose participation in a fair election represents what NPR types would call a “threat to Our Democracy.”

At another point, she posted a picture of herself — masked outdoors, naturally — with a “Biden for President” hat. In a meandering TED Talk that makes Vice President Kamala Harris’s musings seem coherent, Maher blurted out the gem that, “We all have different truths.”

Prepare to be condescended to as the head of NPR explains the concept of truth:

She clarifies that although all “truths” are equally valid, truths that do not comply with woke ideology are not valid; bitterly clinging to these wrong truths is what causes deplorables to distrust the liberal establishment:

Maher calls the First Amendment the “number 1 challenge” to suppressing “bad information” — i.e., “truths” she doesn’t like:

In this apparatchik’s conception of utopia, everything except the corrosive lies spewed on NPR would be illegal.

Bad enough that the federal government forces us to fund a news program. This is obviously unnecessary given the alphabet soup of news outlets (ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/MSNBC/ETC.) and outside its constitutional purview. Forcing us to fund propaganda that does not pass the laugh test as objective news is corrupt.

Grotesquely excessive federal spending threatens the viability of the American economy. To save the country, a Javier Milei style chainsaw is required. Defunding low-hanging fruit like NPR/PBS is a no-brainer.

Police Shut Down Conservative Conference in Brussels

Brussels is the de facto capital of the European Union. The city has fallen to Europe’s worst enemies, both external and internal. Consequently:

Police descended upon a Brussels conference venue on Tuesday morning on the orders of local mayor Emir Kir to prevent a political conference from taking place. Delegates and speakers who had not yet made it into the building were blocked from entering… The conference is slated to feature a range of political speakers including Brexit leader Nigel Farage, the Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban, former UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman, and other conservative thinkers and legislators.

Such speakers are regarded as offensive to the Islamoleftist alliance as personified by the socialist Turk Emir Kir.

Former French presidential candidate Eric Zemmour was among those physically prevented from entering the conference venue.

Zemmour accused Brussels municipal mayor Emir Kir of being “close to the Turkish Islamists” and using the police as “a private militia” to shut down discussion.

As noted by Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, freedom of speech is guaranteed by the Belgian constitution. Apparently this document does still apply even in colonized Brussels:

A conservative conference in Brussels has resumed after a court overturned the local mayor’s order to shut it down. …

The Mayor of Brussels justified the order to ban the conference to “guarantee public safety”, adding “the far right is not welcome”.

Extrapolating from current trends, such a conference will be inconceivable in Europe in the coming decades.

Biden Demands Israel Not Move on Haifa

If Joe Biden is clever enough to serve as Commander in Chief of the USA, he ought to be put in charge of Israel’s fight for survival against Islamomaniacs. Never mind; he already is in charge of it. Watch as he delivers orders not to move on Haifa:

Haifa is the third-largest city in Israel. This is equivalent to Netanyahu demanding Biden not move on Chicago.

Surgical Oncologists Required to Be DEI Compliant

To work as a surgical oncologist, you must meet certain requirements. Prominent among these at UC Davis is compliance with DEI ideology:

Applicants for a job as a surgical oncologist must submit a “Statement of Contributions to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion,” to be considered at the University of California Davis.

“Contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion documented in the application file will be used to evaluate applicants,” the job listing for an “academic surgical oncologist/breast surgeon” states.

Iran is considered a totalitarian theocracy because everyone is required to comply with Islam. But I doubt you need to submit a statement detailing your contributions to jihad to work as a surgeon. The ayatollahs running the place are fanatical, but not compared to the moonbats running our schools.

[W]hile a DEI statement is mandatory, a “Statement of Teaching” and “Statement of Research” both are listed as optional under the job application instructions.

You can’t prioritize everything.

The effect on patients’ well-being of surgeons being chosen on the basis of social engineering and/or political orthodoxy rather than professional skill is irrelevant to educrats.

It isn’t just UC Davis:

For example, San Diego State University’s job listing in 2022 for a cancer biologist also required a DEI statement, as reported by City Journal.

The subversion of the medical field by leftists and its subordination to moonbattery will lower the quality of healthcare and cost lives.

Then again, if janitors have to submit DEI statements to get hired, equity demands that surgeons should too.

Human Waste as Sustainable Aviation Fuel

We can’t use readily available fossil fuels, because they are said to be offensive to the atavistic weather gods worshiped by liberals. We can’t use clean and affordable nuclear power, because libs don’t like that either. Wind and solar are great for laundering taxpayer money, but are not capable of generating more than a small fraction of our energy needs. What then can we use to keep the lights on, wheels rolling, and jets in the air? Moonbats have the answer. It is something they can supply in great abundance — because they are full of it:

Wizz Air is making waves with its recent announcement that up to 10% of its flights could be powered by sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) derived from human waste by 2030. In an innovative approach to tackling the dual challenges of waste management and sustainable air travel, the Hungarian budget airline is joining forces with UK-based Firefly to transform sewage sludge into a biofuel that could see passengers flying on planes powered by an unusual source—human feces.

They ought to use urine, considering the name of the airline.

So long as moonbats remain in charge, the biofuel will pile up ever deeper:

The bold move by Wizz Air comes amid increasing pressure from the EU for airlines to adapt to more sustainable practices, with a mandate requiring a minimum of 20% of jet fuel to qualify as SAF by 2035, escalating to 70% by 2050.

In the USA, this form of biofuel is already heavily subsidized, although for now it is mostly used in academia rather than energy production.

Transgender Maniac Layla Le Fey Gets Wrist Slap

Sexual psychosis is a serious problem in our society. It should be treated like the illness it is rather than encouraged in the name of leftist politics. Maniacs like Layla Le Fey do not need egging on:

Le Fey, 44, was handed a combined 20-week suspended sentence for violent threats he sent to Helen Joyce and Kellie Jay Keen, two well-known women critical of gender identity ideology, in which he fantasized about butchering and dismembering them.

Le Fey says he is “interested in setting fire” to Keen’s home — with her inside.

Le Fey had also communicated his desire to “kick the s**t out of” her, rip her eyes out, and break her spine in a bizarre bid to “prove [her] point” that “some trans people are extremely violent.” That same day, Le Fey stated that he would enjoy either seeing Keen brutally killed by a “misogynist psychopath” or acting out the murder himself.

No doubt she has it coming for being a transphobe. Transphobia = genocide. Take a Gender Studies course at any liberal arts college if you don’t believe me.

As for author Helen Joyce, Director of Advocacy for women’s rights charity Sex Matters,

“God how I would love to just rip your eyes out, chop your hands off, and carve your face up really badly,” Le Fey said to Joyce on March 20.

The idea is to terrify resistance to LGBTism into silence. The threats carry wait because if a guy is crazy enough to go around dressed like a red light district version of Corporal Klinger, he might be crazy enough to act on them — as a visit to the Transsexual Violence Hall of Horrors will confirm.

Le Fey was sentenced to a consecutive 10 weeks for the threats against Keen, and another 10 concurrent weeks for the messages he sent to Joyce.

Even this wrist slap of a sentence was suspended.

At least there is an 18-month restraining order keeping him away from Keen and Joyce. They must feel totally safe now. Or maybe not:

Le Fey has a history of violence, and, according to the Daily Mail, a lengthy criminal record. He has been convicted for more than 50 prior offenses, including several for wielding weapons in public.

Good thing for him that he claims to be a woman:

Le Fey had also previously avoided a prison sentence as a direct result of his transgender status.

That was for brandishing a claw hammer while stealing wine from a store. Membership has its privileges — especially membership in identity groups worshiped by leftists as “oppressed.”

Feds Mandate Time Off for Abortion

Of the four branches of government, the most powerful is the bureaucratic branch. Because it does not have to stand for elections, it uniformly backs the Party of Government, working relentlessly to promote the Democrat agenda in big ways and small. Here’s an example of it promoting the liberal sacrament of abortion:

Workers are entitled to time off and other job accommodations for abortions … under the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, according to finalized federal regulations published Monday.

Legal scholars will search in vain for the clause of the Constitution that bestows upon the federal government the authority to dictate to private employers that they must provide women with time off to facilitate killing their babies.

Invaders From Africa Swarm New York City Hall

The problem with leftists’ race-based strategy is that blacks make up only 13% of the American population. But Democrats are working on that via welfare and immigration policy. New York represents a microcosm of the progress they are making:

The New York Post reports:

About 1,300 African migrants gathered outside City Hall Tuesday morning hoping to appear at a hearing on the black experience in the city shelter system — with some saying they were promised work visas or green cards if they showed. …

The crowd was mostly made up of new arrivals from Guinea, in West Africa, and were apparently drawn to City Hall by an activist group, a source told The Post.

The newcomers have gripes. For example, they don’t like their free cheese, according to Assitan Makadji of African Communities Together:

“They’re not used to cheese but they don’t have no choice because in the shelter that’s what they serve. If they go to the pantry they can get food but it’s not cooked food and they can’t cook in the shelter. So we’re looking for cooked food for them,” she told The Post.

What, no room service?

Western Journal reports on their disappointment:

“They all are saying that this is not what they were expecting,” CBS News New York’s John Dias said in a live report on the scene of the protest.

What are they going to do now, return home? Not likely.

Their dissatisfaction will be easy for Democrats to weaponize against the native population the newcomers have been imported to displace. New York City Councilmember Alexa Avilés is already at it:
