Will Ford Keep Making Police Cars?

Figuratively speaking, kneeling to Black Lives Matter is no longer optional; it is mandatory. Its ideology requires that you regard the police as the enemy, until such a time as local police can be replaced with an enforcement mechanism more to the liking of the radical left. The hysterical hatred of police has reached the point that some at Ford want to stop making police cars:

An estimated 100 employees of Ford Motor Co. have asked the automaker to reconsider building and selling police vehicles in light of controversy related to police brutality and social justice…

Ford is already participating in the BLM-inspired campaign to suppress unapproved opinions on social media.

Ford … announced plans to pull its social media spending amid calls for action against misinformation and hate speech.

The idea is to twist Facebook’s arm until it agrees to censor anything Black Lives Matter wouldn’t approve of.

Refusing to make squad cars would escalate the level of pandering to the ultraleft mob.

The Dearborn automaker has long established itself in the law enforcement community as a trusted supplier of police cars and SUVs, which generate significant revenue for the automaker. The Police Interceptor, a highly modified Ford Explorer, is perhaps the most high-profile current vehicle. …

Ford provides about two-thirds of police vehicles in the U.S.

Buying American may not always be a good idea, if it means leaving yourself at the mercy of the militant wokeness currently prevailing among American corporations.

After days of internal questions, [Ford CEO Jim] Hackett wrote to salaried employees about “whether Ford’s development of police vehicles is a good idea given the spotlight on social justice and police reform.”

Hackett appears not to be cowardly enough to stop making police cars to placate the mob. However, “discussion within the company continues to simmer.”

GM makes police cars too. But GM is also eager to pander to Black Lives Matter:

GM announced plans to donate $10 million to promote inclusion and named a social equality panel in June.

Police may end up having to drive Toyotas. So far as I know, the Japanese do not side with Marxists and criminals against American law enforcement.

De Blasio Forbids All Large Gatherings That Don’t Promote Leftist Radicalism

The tyranny could not be more arrogantly obvious. Despite the First Amendment guarantee of the right peaceably to assemble, you have no such right in New York City under liberal rule, on the pretext of the Wuhan Coronavirus. However, if instead of assembling peaceably you want to riot and tear down statues on behalf of radical left Black Lives Matter, have at it:

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) defended his decision to cancel all large events in the city through the end of September, and stated that the protests are part of a “historic moment of change” and we “have to respect that, but also say to people, the kinds of gatherings we’re used to, the parades, the fairs, we just can’t have that while we’re focusing on health right now.”

There are two kind of gatherings: those that consist of Marxist intimidation tactics, and those that spread COVID-19. The former are encouraged, the latter are forbidden.

Under liberal rule, only the bad guys have rights.

Seeing is believing:

Overweight Black Models Oppressed by Exclusion

Just when you thought Cultural Marxism could not possibly become more ludicrous, moonbats reveal the latest group to qualify as oppressed by social injustice: overweight black women who screech that they have been left behind by the body positivity movement. Compliments of British taxpayers, via the BBC:

Enam, Kayela, Lyza, Nyome and Vanessa are plus-sized models and active members of the online body positivity community, who say they have experienced exclusion and unequal pay.

They feel the movement fails to represent fat, black women.

Want to see video? Here it is anyway:

Maybe their problem is that they are biological women instead of trans women. Jari Jones's career is humming along.

State Rep Candidate Cancels Himself for Being Caucasian

The Cancel Culture has reached such a frenzy that a Democrat candidate for State Representative has canceled himself, explicitly for being a Caucasian. From Taxachusetts:

The lone white candidate in the race for the Massachusetts 12th Suffolk House seat — a district made up of 70% Black residents — is dropping out in the wake of the national civil rights movement [i.e., the endless rioting, vandalism, and general mayhem] that was sparked by the police killing of [violent career criminal] George Floyd.

Notice how they capitalize “Black” but not “white.” That is deliberate editorial policy in the liberal media, to signify who you are supposed to revere and who you are supposed to despise.

Cam Charbonnier, a longtime aide for Boston Mayor Martin Walsh, cited this “inspiring” movement in his decision to leave the race as he wrote in a letter on Thursday, “I realize that this is not my moment.”

It is not his moment because he is racist against his own race.

“In these extraordinary times, and in a district where communities of color make up an overwhelming proportion of its residents, I have decided … that the best way that I can serve this movement is by stepping aside as a candidate.”

He then went on to blather contemptibly about the imaginary “scourge of systemic racism and racial injustice that our nation has yet to reckon with.”

A quick glance at his picture explains everything. Soft as rotting apple sauce, Charbonnier couldn’t look more quintessentially liberal if he put on a pink tutu.

This is rich:

Many voters during the campaign have asked him how a white man would represent the district that’s made up of 70% Black residents, he said.

The USA was still 72% white in 2010. Barack Obama was elected in 2008 and 2012. Yet we are told to believe that the country is racist against blacks.

Vermont Forbids Throwing Food Scraps in the Garbage

If Democrats prevail, there will be zero tolerance for anything that deviates from their all-pervasive and hyperintrusive ideology. Every picayune aspect of your life will have to conform to their dictates. For example, the global warming hoax will be exploited to impose lunatic tyranny like this:

In a new law effective July 1, Vermonters are asked to save leftovers like peels, rinds, cores, eggshells, coffee grounds and tea bags from the garbage, plus unfinished “plate scraps” like bread, meat, veggies, fruit, dairy, sweets, sauces and food that’s gone bad. From there, people are instructed to compost the scraps, coordinate a curbside pick-up or drop them off at a composting site.

The Takeout reports that the Green Mountain State has budgeted nearly $1 million to expand the pick-up and drop-off services in the composting crusade. The effort is aimed at reducing 50 percent of the food waste that would have otherwise ended up in landfills.

Why would anyone want to reduce food waste in landfills, where it harmlessly decomposes? Because according to moonbat dogma, composting demonstrates an eagerness to reduce carbon emissions and thereby improve global weather.

Vermont also imposed a ban on plastic bags as of last Wednesday. Inmates of the state can either pay 10¢ for a paper bag, or bring reusable bags that spread diseases, including COVID-19.

Democrats want to make the whole country into Vermont, except without the guns and white people. There will be tedious, pointless laws to govern everything imaginable.

Supreme Court Gives Half of Oklahoma Back to Indians

Just when you thought that current events could not get any crazier without Democrats taking over the White House first, the Supreme Court has given nearly half of the State of Oklahoma back to the Indians. Unreal:

The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that millions of acres in eastern Oklahoma — including Tulsa, the state’s second-largest city — are still part of an American Indian reservation.

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court agreed with a convicted rapist who argued that his 1997 rape conviction should be overturned because the state of Oklahoma lacked jurisdiction. Neil Gorsuch sided with the liberal wing, ruling that Congress failed to disestablish the 1866 boundaries of the reservation.

Even John Roberts, who has bent over backward to accommodate liberals on issues like ObamaCare and abortion, acknowledges that Congress had clearly transformed the reservation into a state.

“In 1997, the State of Oklahoma convicted petitioner Jimcy McGirt of molesting, raping, and forcibly sodomizing a four-year-old girl, his wife’s granddaughter,” Roberts wrote in the opinion joined by Justices Alito, Kavanaugh and Thomas. “McGirt was sentenced to 1,000 years plus life in prison. Today, the Court holds that Oklahoma lacked jurisdiction to prosecute McGirt—on the improbable ground that, unbeknownst to anyone for the past century, a huge swathe of Oklahoma is actually a Creek Indian reservation, on which the State may not prosecute serious crimes committed by Indians like McGirt. Not only does the Court discover a Creek reservation that spans three million acres and includes most of the city of Tulsa, but the Court’s reasoning portends that there are four more such reservations in Oklahoma. The rediscovered reservations encompass the entire eastern half of the State—19 million acres that are home to 1.8 million people, only 10%–15% of whom are Indians.”

As we learned from Obergefell v Hodges, it only takes five votes to impose any extreme of moonbattery, no matter how whacky and destructive. Ultraleft lunacy is guaranteed at least four votes.

Hundreds of dangerous inmates may have to be released from prison as a result of this grossly irresponsible ruling.

As Roberts points out, “the Court has profoundly destabilized the governance of eastern Oklahoma.” Uncoincidentally, destabilization is at the heart of the Hard Left’s strategy to dismantle our system and replace it with authoritarianism.

It will be interesting to see what effect this has on voting status. What better time than right before an election to throw voting into question in arguably the reddest state in the nation?

Considering that the Supremes are this reckless if not malevolent now, imagine the situation after Joe Biden has been in a position to nominate whatever recommendations he is handed by the radicals currently steering the Democrat Party.

They might give the whole country back to the Indians. Why not? According to their ideology, America has no right to exist. They have been tearing down statues of Christopher Columbus and George Washington to underscore that very point. Maybe they will declare Elizabeth Warren an honorary Indian and appoint her Big Chief for Life.

Where Political Incorrectness Goes Unpunished

Even liberals now live in fear of getting canceled for some slight infraction against political correctness. However, those who enjoy black privilege can still speak their minds, no matter how offensive their opinions. As mentioned earlier, Louis Farrakhan fan and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson actually quoted Hitler while denouncing Jews. There are more where DeSean Jackson came from:

Former NBA player Stephen Jackson defended DeSean Jackson on Tuesday night, saying the Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver was “speaking the truth” with his social media posts, including an anti-Semitic message that he attributed to Adolf Hitler.

Apparently under pressure, Stephen Jackson deleted his Instagram post. But he replaced it with this eloquent message:

American blacks have known nothing but pampering and privilege for generations now. Yet in the minds of some pigmentally preferred millionaires, this equates to surviving the Holocaust.

Unsurprisingly, Stephen Jackson used to work as an analyst for ESPN.

Democrats Defunded at State Level

Few people will speak out against the Left these days. They don’t want to get canceled as thought criminals or have their business burned down by terrorist mobs. But that doesn’t mean their heart is in what is being done to our country. Here’s some good news for a change:

Americans significantly decreased contributions to Democrats running for state legislature seats in the second quarter as the Democrat Party has turned hard left, fundraising information announced this week shows.

Hopefully, this will forecast coming national trends.

The drop-off in Democrat Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) fundraising—which has Democrats $20 million shy of their stated cycle-long goal of $50 million total—comes as their Republican counterparts nearly doubled the total raised by Democrats in the second quarter.

Donations are more meaningful than polls. People are more likely to speak their true feelings with their wallets than with their mouths.

“Placating the woke Left’s tirade against America may play well on Twitter and cable news, but it looks like anarchy is too tough a sell for liberal enablers like the DLCC to persuade donors to keep contributing to their radical mission,” Lenze Morris, the national press secretary for the RSLC, told Breitbart News. “Defunding the police, overreaching economic shutdowns, and shaming those who are proud of their country – it’s all a bridge too far for Americans, and state Democrats right now own every bit of this ludicrous agenda.”

It is easy to stampede corporations into financing the destruction of their own country, due to the appalling caliber of many of the people running them. Regular Americans could be a different story.

A Civilization Dies

Black Lives Matter is currently the most powerful political force in America. Watching the ascendancy of these maniacs as they burn, loot, vandalize, and spout vicious race hate makes you wonder about their end game. Here are two clues as to where this is headed: (1) BLM demands effectively unlimited black immigration as well as a “guaranteed minimum livable income” for all blacks, a combination sure to draw vast numbers; and (2) South Africa.

The media hasn’t paid much attention to South Africa since a black communist terrorist was put in charge of the country in 1994. We were told everyone would live happily ever after. Katie Hopkins brings us up to date:

Eighty-four farm attacks since lockdown began, twelve white farmers slaughtered from their land. The footage of the aftermath of one of the attacks circulating on Telegram and sent to me — too brutal to share. …

As many of us celebrated the 4th of July this weekend, there were three murders in two days, one of them so unspeakably cruel that even those hardened to the news of torture of farmers by black gangs have found themselves white-knuckled at the speed of the horror.

Whites are routinely killed for skin color. The government takes little interest.

Europeans first arrived in South Africa in the 1600s. They created an advanced country, so affluent that Africans poured into it from other parts of the continent. Now they comprise a tiny percentage of the population, and will soon be snuffed out altogether.

Progressives will celebrate the death of the last white farmer. By then, South Africa will be a basket case, reliant on international welfare for food like its forerunner Rhodesia, the erstwhile Breadbasket of Africa that is now known as Zimbabwe.

Why don’t the last whites leave? Because they have been farming the land for centuries. The land is all some of them have.

Also, where would they go? They would not be as welcome as other immigrants, due to Cultural Marxism.

Australia discussed giving them amnesty until the liberals declared the idea racist. The rest of the world rejects these murders as a far-right conspiracy or myth.

So they stick it out with their characteristic resilience.

Many are preparing for a final fight and talk about the “last stand” with determination. Most sleep with a loaded weapon under their pillow, stealing themselves for death if it should come. They won’t die without a fight.

Let’s hope the last generation of Caucasians in North America goes out with as much courage.

Liberal Establishmentarians Back Away From Defending Free Speech

A handful of liberal establishmentarians attempted to demonstrate their courage and high principles by signing an open letter that appeared in Harper’s Magazine. The letter criticizes the ongoing soft Reign of Terror, during which repressively tolerant liberals have been destroying people’s careers over even the slightest perceived infractions against political correctness. The results were predictable: when their fellow moonbats threatened to cancel them for drawing attention to cancel culture, some whimperingly disavowed the letter.

New York Times op-ed writer Jennifer Finney Boylan says she only signed it because high-profile ultramoonbats Noam Chomsky, Gloria Steinem, and Margaret Atwood had done so. She didn’t realize it would anger the mob. Snivels Boylan, “The consequences are mine to bear. I am so sorry.”

Rather than apologize, historian Kerri Greenidge proclaimed on Twitter, “I do not endorse this @Harpers letter. I am in contact with Harper’s about a retraction.” Harper’s says she agreed to be included, but since now she doesn’t, her name has been removed.

Here’s the crux of the letter, once it gets past the de rigueur praise of Black Lives Matter riots and denunciations of Donald Trump, “right-wing demagogues,” and the “radical right”:

[I]t is now all too common to hear calls for swift and severe retribution in response to perceived transgressions of speech and thought. More troubling still, institutional leaders, in a spirit of panicked damage control, are delivering hasty and disproportionate punishments instead of considered reforms. Editors are fired for running controversial pieces; books are withdrawn for alleged inauthenticity; journalists are barred from writing on certain topics; professors are investigated for quoting works of literature in class; a researcher is fired for circulating a peer-reviewed academic study; and the heads of organizations are ousted for what are sometimes just clumsy mistakes. Whatever the arguments around each particular incident, the result has been to steadily narrow the boundaries of what can be said without the threat of reprisal. We are already paying the price in greater risk aversion among writers, artists, and journalists who fear for their livelihoods if they depart from the consensus, or even lack sufficient zeal in agreement. …

We need to preserve the possibility of good-faith disagreement without dire professional consequences. If we won’t defend the very thing on which our work depends, we shouldn’t expect the public or the state to defend it for us.

You can see why Boylan and Greenidge regret angering the mob by signing such an inflammatory statement.

Imagine if the signers of the Declaration of Independence where made of the same soggy substance. At the first sound of gunfire, they would have scrambled to disavow the document.

At least J.K. Rowling, who has already taken heat for not being willing to pretend that men literally become women by “identifying” as women, is showing a little spine:

In the end, the Constitution cannot save us from totalitarianism. Neither can a safe full of guns. Only guts can save us. Considering how few people speak out against the Marxist black supremacist terror cult Black Lives Matter, guts are in alarmingly short supply.

Can Biden Even Say the Words “America First”?

In the video below, it looks like Biden is trying to say, “America first,” but he just can’t do it. Maybe this is due to his cognitive problems, or maybe the words simply will not come out of him, for the same reason Dracula couldn’t take hold of a crucifix:

War on Heritage Is Not About Slavery

You have probably figured out that the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party (i.e., Black Lives Matter/Antifa) is not destroying statues of George Washington over slavery, which had been standard practice since before recorded history during Washington’s time. Ami Horowitz provides confirmation:

Moonbats don’t hate George Washington because he owned slaves. They hate him because he is the Father of America. Mohammad was a maniacal warlord who founded a death cult that is implacably hostile to America, so it was fine for him to own slaves.

Mind this was filmed in Manhattan, where nearly 3,000 Americans were murdered in the name of Mohammad in 2001. You can count on leftists to be reflexively treasonous, and to side with evil and against good.
