Yes, Many Dems Want to Confiscate All Guns

The weenies at Esquire aren’t the first liberals to state outright their intention to confiscate all guns from the hands of law-abiding citizens. InfoWars has it right on this one:

Moonbats like Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey like the concept of a second civil war because they mean it metaphorically. But pushing their authoritarian agenda where the Second Amendment is concerned could result in a literal civil war, the kind that is resolved not through control of the means of communication but through force of arms. They won’t like the results.

Affirmative Action Mentality Leaches Meaning from Cannes Awards

People are finally catching on that prizes awarded on an Affirmative Action basis are worse than meaningless; they are an insult:

The Lebanese director tipped to become only the second woman ever to win the top prize at the Cannes film festival will be very annoyed if her accolade is billed as the feminist choice of a #MeToo jury.

“There’s a risk that some people would interpret it in that way, which would be very irritating because it would have the opposite effect. Instead of honouring women they’d be saying ‘You’re here because you’re a woman’,” Nadine Labaki told AFP.

Being a woman might not be the only reason other than her talent that she was there.

This year’s festival, which features five directors from North Africa and the Middle East, is one of the best in half a century for Arab cinema.

The association with Islam makes all things Arab politically preferable.

As it turns out, she got the Jury Prize and Japanese veteran Hirokazu Kore-Eda took the Palme d’Or. The Grand Prize went to the odious Spike Lee for his latest race-baiting B.S., which alone might fulfill this year’s quota for political correctness.

Why not chuck moonbattery and go back to merit? Then when Nadine Labaki wins awards, she can take full pride in them.

Why the Left Will Reelect Trump in 2020

Trump has an ace in the hole when it comes to reelection: moonbats. Black Pigeon Speaks explains why the Left will reelect Trump in 2020:

People who aren’t totalitarians don’t want to be ruled by totalitarians. That’s why progressives will inevitably have to resort to force in the end if they are going to enact their full agenda. No wonder they want to take our guns.

The Suicide of Europe

The neurotic guilt at the core of leftism is corroding the West’s belief in itself, leading to a willingness to be displaced out of existence. Douglas Murray explains how Europe is committing suicide by moonbattery:

If what Merkel et al. have been inflicting on Europe is not arrested and reversed, Europe will cease to exist. The human race will step backward, possibly irreversibly.

Esquire: Yes, We Liberals Want to Confiscate All Guns

Every time the lack of security results in a school shooting, the mask slips further. Usually liberals try to convince us that they wouldn’t confiscate all guns in private hands, not even incrementally. But we are moving past that pretense now. From a childishly snarky not to mention staggeringly idiotic piece that came out on Esquire, the day of the Santa Fe, Texas shooting:

Hey there, NRA:

Listen, I know the moments after a gunman opens fire in a school are hectic for you. You have to get your talking points together, you have to mentally prepare to debate a traumatized yet sensible child, you have to look at yourself in the mirror and practice saying that more guns would have made the situation less deadly. It’s a busy time! And since we are always either in the moments after or the moments before a mass shooting, you’re pretty much always busy, I have noticed!

Anyway, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that I now actually do want to take your guns.

All of your guns.

Right now.

The author assures us that he used to be “ambivalent” about the right to bear arms. But now it is obvious to any reasonable person that extreme measures must be taken…

If moonbattery keeps eroding our national character, progressives may one day be able to disarm us without setting off a second civil war. Will they rest on their laurels, content that when only the government and criminals have access to firearms, utopia has been achieved? Of course not. Progressives progress.

Oligarchical collectivists don’t like gun rights because guns empower the individual. Cars also empower the individual. If it were up to cutting edge progressives, we would only be able to go where public transportation takes us.

In the post–Second Amendment future, the hysteria, hype, and authoritarian militancy that characterize media coverage of mass shootings will be transferred to auto accidents. Every time there is a pileup, the media will scream that AAA did it, and drivers will wonder if this is the year Big Government comes for their cars.

Quick Summary of the Why the Iran Deal Was a Farce

Sara Gonzales explains in well under 3 minutes why pulling out of the farcical Iran deal was a good idea:

Unfortunately, the damage has been done. Money to finance its terror war against the West, including its programs to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, has flooded in upon the ayatollahs, thanks to the treason team, Obama and Kerry. Getting the sanctions fully back in place is almost as unlikely as getting back the pallets piled with cash that Obama illegally gave to America’s most aggressive enemy.

Kudos to Michael Williams, Republican candidate for Governor of Georgia, for coming up with the best campaign bus ever. Williams calls it the Deportation Bus.

Deportation catapults at the border would be better still, but the bus will do for now. Mark Dice tips his hat, and also weighs in on the latest crackdown on countermoonbattery by Twitter (a great argument for trying out Gab.ai):

Meghan Markle, Moonbat

Jack Buckby is a pro-royalty guy, but he isn’t celebrating the big wedding today, on the grounds that Meghan Markle isn’t fit to become royalty — mainly because she is a moonbat:

Then again, if Prince Chucklehead is royalty caliber, who wouldn’t be? Plus, Meghan Markle is a mulatto, which is an impressive qualification for any public position.

Open Thread

False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. - Cesare Beccaria

Google’s Selfish Ledger Reveals Social Engineering Ambitions

Google is an explicitly ideological entity, known to fire employees for expressing even centrist opinions where only an ultra-left viewpoint is allowed. It has tremendous leverage, being able to an alarming extent to determine what is seen and what is not seen on the Internet. If knowledge is power, Google’s possession of vast amounts of data on us makes it a rival to the federal government. Given this context, try to watch this leaked internal Google video about social engineering without shuddering in horror:

See The Verge for more information. The leaked video was made by Nick Foster…

Foster envisions a future where “the notion of a goal-driven ledger becomes more palatable” and “suggestions may be converted not by the user but by the ledger itself.” This is where the Black Mirror undertones come to the fore, with the ledger actively seeking to fill gaps in its knowledge and even selecting data-harvesting products to buy that it thinks may appeal to the user. The example given in the video is a bathroom scale because the ledger doesn’t yet know how much its user weighs. The video then takes a further turn toward anxiety-inducing sci-fi, imagining that the ledger may become so astute as to propose and 3D-print its own designs. Welcome home, Dave, I built you a scale.

Foster’s vision of the ledger goes beyond a tool for self-improvement. The system would be able to “plug gaps in its knowledge and refine its model of human behavior” — not just your particular behavior or mine, but that of the entire human species.

Where ambition is concerned, totalitarians of the past were pikers compared to Google’s social engineers.

Whoever writes the code, rules the future. Almost exclusively, militant moonbats write the code. Silicon Valley has little tolerance for anyone else.

A Far Better Target for Our Rage Than the NRA

Authoritarian leftists want us to get mad at the NRA for defending our constitutional rights. It makes far more sense to get mad at the authorities who fail to provide necessary security and rarely suffer any consequences:

Despite receiving a warning directly from the Russian government, the FBI failed to stop the Tsarnaev brothers from staging the Boston Marathon bombing. Despite having plenty of resources, the Charlottesville police failed to stop a car attack that left a woman dead. The FBI interviewed Omar Mateen, the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooter, and considered criminally investigating him. They didn’t — possibly because his father was an FBI informant.

The FBI also missed numerous “red flags” before the San Bernardino shooting. And despite having lots of warning, the FBI, the Broward County schools and the Broward Sheriff’s Department under Sheriff Scott Israel all failed to stop Nikolas Cruz from shooting up a high school. …

This is why calls for more gun control ring hollow. When the laws that would have prevented Nikolas Cruz from getting a gun failed because those in charge of executing them chose — chose — not to enforce them, because doing so would have made the school’s crime reports look bad, then it’s hard to believe that more laws will make a difference.

You know what might make a difference, though? Consequences.

Speaking of consequences, cowardly deputy Scot Peterson, who conspicuously neglected to put a stop to Cruz’s killing spree, is mentioned as “the only person so far to pay any price for failure.” That price is that he resigned. However:

[Peterson] is reportedly receiving a lifetime monthly pension of $8,702.35 – sparking outrage among parents of the teen victims.

“This infuriates me in ways people cannot comprehend. My daughter would still be alive if this person did his job,” Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter Jaime was among 17 people shot dead inside the Parkland, said on Twitter. …

Andrew Pollack, whose 18-year-old daughter Meadow died, tweeted: “The coward of Broward, Scot Peterson is getting over $8k a month pension! He hid while my daughter and 16 others were slaughtered! How in the hell is he getting this? That money should go to actually securing our schools!”

But turn on the TV and you will learn that the NRA killed their daughters, just like it caused today’s carnage in Texas.

You can’t fool all of the people all of the time, no matter how loudly you shout on almost every channel. Ridding the world of firearms is not the issue. Providing security is the issue. If we can do it for ball games, we can to it for schools.

Harvard to Hold Separate Black Graduation Ceremony

Black students have their own separate admission requirements and most likely their own separate standards to graduate. Consequently, their Harvard degrees have their own separate value, so why shouldn’t they have their own separate black graduation ceremony?

Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked.

By “some,” they must mean obsessively Afrocentric black supremacists.

Harvard joins a growing number of universities that have added graduation events for students of different ethnicities. Some have offered black commencement ceremonies for years, including Stanford University, Marshall University and the University of Washington. Some have added them more recently, and are also adding events for a variety of cultural groups.

These have included Latinos and sexual deviants.

If universities are going to preach cultural Marxist divisiveness, they may as well practice it.

At the Harvard black graduation,

Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university’s graduation.

Liberal heads would explode if they had a separate graduation ceremony to celebrate those who got into and through school on their own merits, without any help from Affirmative Action. Yet in the end, that is what we will be left with, when every special interest identity group that can be played off against the core population gets its own special ceremony and stops attending the general ceremony.

Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever, as George Wallace might say.

Fashion Chain New Look Accused of Discrimination Against the Overweight

The power derived from being discriminated against is not only for persons of preferred pigmentation, Religion of Peaceniks, and sexual deviants. In Britain, the overweight can join in too — unfortunately for the fashion chain New Look:

New Look is reviewing its prices after an outcry that some larger-sized clothes were more expensive than those in smaller sizes.

Like all businesses accused of political incorrectness, they immediately went into the fetal position and pleaded contrition.

The High Street retailer said it was hoping to “ensure pricing differences like these” did not happen in future.

While moonbats lurch to the conclusion that only discrimination born of pointless malice could explain price differentials, there are other explanations. It can take twice as much fabric to make a large size as a small one.

But moonbats only need one explanation for anything they don’t like.

Plus-size model Nyome Nicholas-Williams told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme she felt the application of higher prices was discriminatory.

“Some people don’t choose to be the size they are – or height. If you have to pay extra money [for clothes] subliminally it feels like you are being told you have to lose weight,” she said.

Presumably, clothing companies must sell their products at a loss if necessary, so that Nyome isn’t reminded that she needs to lose weight — although her doctor would be remiss not to bring it up.

Any added expense could be a hard burden to bear for New Look:

Earlier this year, New Look announced it would close 60 UK stores and cut 1,000 jobs as part of a financial restructuring.

It will be so much simpler when Jeremy Corbyn types take control and impose communism. They can follow the Soviet method of clothing production. Everything is made in a single size and anyone who doesn’t like it can either shut up or else.

Green Party Leader Robert Habeck Says the German People Does Not Exist

Theoretically, in a democracy, even the most progressive politicians represent the population that elects them. In actual practice, Germany’s Green Party leader Robert Habeck will not even acknowledge that population’s existence:

When asked about the concept of betrayal of the people, Habeck says:

“That’s a Nazi concept. There is no people, in consequence, there cannot be a treason of the people. It’s a statement of anger that can be really divisive, discriminatory and pernicious.”

Herzlichen glückwunsch, Mutti Merkel. The program of genocide by mass immigration has worked faster than anyone could have expected. Your mission is accomplished.

Unless of course there still is a German people, in which case Habeck is full of Braunschweiger, if not something smellier.

Pretending that Germans do not exist as Germans is a way of supporting their ongoing displacement by welfare colonists from Muslim lands.

Despite the lack of environmental consciousness in these lands, it is no surprise that German Greens support Islamization, when you consider the party’s association with pedophilia.

Pedophilia is intrinsic to Islam. Mohammed serves as the model of the ideal human being, to be emulated in every respect. His favorite wife was about 6 years old when he married her, 9 at consummation.

Enforcing Facial Expression Compliance

Technological advances allow ChiComs to push totalitarianism to extremes even Stalin couldn’t have imagined. For example, facial recognition technology is used for enforcing facial expression compliance:

Three cameras have been installed above a blackboard at Hangzhou Number 11 High School in eastern China. The system identifies seven different facial expressions — neutral, happy, sad, disappointed, angry, scared and surprised — to determine whether children are focused on their lessons, and if they’re not, the computer will feed this back to the teacher.

A student reports:

“It’s like a pair of mystery eyes are constantly watching me.”

Not only is Big Brother always watching, artificial intelligence will increasingly allow him to process everything he sees.

The school’s headmaster confirms that those who the machines regard as inattentive will receive lower grades.

Good thing nothing like this could happen in the Land of the Free. Imagine living in country where authorities dictate what kind of expression you must have on your face. Oh wait… From Pennsylvania:

Northern Lebanon School District students are required to smile while walking the hallways between classes,…

Fifteen-year-old Julianna Gundrum, a student at the school district, said if you didn’t smile there would be consequences. …

“If you don’t (smile) you get called to the office or down to see your guidance counselor,” she said. “You have to talk about your problems then. You have to or you get detention.”

Even though smiling in the hallways is not a written rule at the school district, it is something that Assistant High School Principal Benjamin Wenger has taken upon himself to enforce, according to several teachers. The teachers who spoke to Lebanon Daily News asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation from the school district.

Wenger could use some of that ChiCom technology to ensure that he doesn’t miss any noncompliant facial expressions. Advanced surveillance technology might also help him catch teachers who talk out of school.

Mutant Elephants with Woolly Mammoth DNA Might Save Us from Global Warming by Knocking Down Trees

If there is anything wackier than the list of problems moonbats think are caused by global warming, it is their proposed solutions — like creating mutant elephants with woolly mammoth DNA to fight global warming by knocking down trees:

Woolly mammoths have been extinct for more than 4,000 years, but with new gene-editing techniques, they could help mitigate the effects of a modern problem: climate change.

The plan is to mix the woolly mammoth genes with those of modern Asian elephants to create a new breed resistant to cold. Why should we do that when supposedly the world will get hotter and hotter due to global warming? Because we could let the mutant elephants loose in Siberia:

Once there, the genetically tweaked elephants would topple trees that keep the area warm in the winter, thereby restoring a more climate-friendly ecosystem.

Virtue signaling companies that promise to plant trees to save the planet from global warming had better change their message, now that trees are bad. In light of this latest reversal of global warming dogma, they should promise to tear down trees instead.

Let’s pause to laugh at moonbats who have bought carbon offsets from scams like Carbonfund.org, which shouts that 20% of global warming is caused by deforestation. Money these fools have been parted from allegedly goes to plant trees so as to arrest global warming. Little did they know that trees actually cause global warming.

The Harvard Woolly Mammoth Revival Team is headed by geneticist George Church. He explains:

“The elephants that lived in the past — and elephants possibly in the future — knocked down trees and allowed the cold air to hit the ground and keep the cold in the winter, and they helped the grass grow and reflect the sunlight in the summer,” Church said. “Those two [factors] combined could result in a huge cooling of the soil and a rich ecosystem.”

If the horror movie experiments with the ancient elephants don’t pan out, maybe we should cut down some of the trees ourselves and use them for lumber. Never mind; that would benefit humanity, so it must be bad.
