Matt Christiansen on the Smith College Hate Hoax

Hate crimes are a major component of the liberal narrative. Like the rest of the narrative, this component is a lie. Despite the large number of hate hoaxes, the number of reported hate crimes has actually been going down.

Matt Christiansen lifts the lid on the phony hate crime phenomenon, with a focus on the absurd spectacle at outlandishly expensive Smith College:

Despite the privileged Oumou Kanoute’s lies being both easily debunked and malicious, despite nothing of significance having happened even had she been telling the truth, educrats and other liberal establishmentarians exploited the farce to ruin lives and inflict their pernicious ideology.

Meanwhile, as we are commanded to regard Oumou Kanoute as oppressed by racism, white students are openly regarded as an “invasive species” on college campuses.

Bomb Back Better

Given the ostentatious worship of black and brown people by the Biden’s Handlers Administration, why are we still bombing them in the Middle East? Because the nauseating PC posturing is a complete load of crap, as Paul Joseph Watson can’t help noticing:

KFC Launches Chicken-Free Chicken Sandwich

Bill Gates and other moonbat social engineers will be delighted by a new product KFC is trying out in Malaysia. Via Poultry World:

KFC Malaysia has launched its Zero Chicken Burger, a plant-based and meatless burger that promises the flavour of Colonel’s secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices, but which has no chicken. …

The chicken-free chicken burger has been created in collaboration with meat substitute brand Quorn and carries a halal-certified meat-free patty…

Regrettably, the chicken-free chicken sandwich cannot be certified as 100% politically correct. It does not meet vegetarian much less vegan requirements, because as KFC Malaysia warns, it is “prepared sharing the same cooking equipment as other KFC products.”

ChiComs Subject US Diplomats to Anal Intrusion

If one story sums up the relationship between the Chinese Communist Party and the Biden Administration, this is it:

U.S. diplomats in China were subjected to anal swab tests for Covid-19, a Department of State spokesperson confirmed Thursday, adding that a protest had been lodged with the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The United States had received assurances from China that the tests were done in error and that diplomatic personnel were exempt from this specific testing requirement, the spokesperson said.

The point has been made; making it a permanent policy would be unnecessarily messy.

Rand Paul Lays Waste to Rachel Lavine and His Agenda

When cross-dressing, senior-slaying LGBT militant Rachel Levine was nominated to become Assistant Secretary of Health, this site remarked,

Not long ago, Levine’s nomination would have been regarded as a tasteless joke. We will learn during the confirmation whether any senators have the nerve to question it and risk being denounced by the media as “transphobic.”

If there is one senator with principles and the nerve to back them, it is Rand Paul of Kentucky.

PJ Media reports:

[Paul] delivered a harsh rebuke of the philosophy that minor children should be allowed to use off-label hormone blockers to delay puberty for the purpose of “transitioning” due to gender dysphoria. He exposed the moral insanity of this idea during assistant health secretary nominee Rachel Levine’s Senate confirmation hearing on Thursday. Levine is transgender and advocates for the chemical altering of children with gender dysphoria.

Children suffering from “gender dysphoria” are often set upon this path at such a young age that the condition likely has more to do with the leftist politics of the parents than the kids’ own proclivities. They are sacrificial offerings to the sick gods of political correctness.

Levine is also open to the surgical sexual mutilation of children less than 18 years of age. He repeatedly refused to answer Paul’s direct question regarding whether children should be subjected to chemical and/or surgical transformations without parental consent.

Watch as someone finally pushes back on behalf of decency and sanity:

Levine’s use of the word “nuanced” is characteristic of our morally degenerate ruling class. When faced with a straightforward confrontation between good and evil, progressives frequently hide behind this word.

The Daily Signal has the transcript. Paul makes some great points at the end:

You give a woman testosterone enough that she grows a beard, you think she’s going to go back looking like a woman when you stop the testosterone? You have permanently changed them. Infertility is another problem.

None of these drugs have been approved for this. They’re all being used off label. I find it ironic that the left that went nuts over hydroxychloroquine being used possibly for COVID are not alarmed that these hormones are being used off label.

There’s no long-term studies. We don’t know what happens to them. We do know that there are dozens and dozens of people who’ve been through this, who regret that this happened and a permanent change happened to them.

If you’ve ever been around children, 14-year-olds can’t make this decision. In the gender dysphoria clinic in England, 10% of the kids are between the ages of 3 and 10. We should be outraged that someone is talking to a 3-year-old about changing their sex.

As the issue of sexually deforming children on behalf of a political agenda makes obvious, there is no nuance involved when it comes to defending America from people like Rachel Levine and those who want to put him in a position of authority over us.

Back to Senseless, Endless, Expensive Wars

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming, which consists largely of senseless, endless, extravagantly expensive wars:

A U.S. airstrike targeting facilities used by Iran-backed militias in Syria appears to be a message to Tehran delivered by a new American administration still figuring out its approach to the Middle East.

While it is refreshing to see Democrats stand up to Iran for a change, can’t we steer clear of the perennial quagmire Syria? It is likely to bog us down in a bigger war, possibly involving Russia.

On behalf of the liberal establishment, David French cheers:

But of course, it would have been bad if Trump had done it:

Trump tried to get us out of messes like Syria. He should have tried harder. Even so, we would just go back to plunging into them again with establishmentarians in control.

Biden Blows $86 Million on Cheap Masks for Racial Equity

Don’t call it a flagrant waste of taxpayer money. Don’t call it a massive litter dump onto a country that is already becoming buried in garbage. Call it racial equity. Because everything that comes out of the Biden’s Handlers Administration is marketed as racial equity — even the plan to blow $86 million on cheap masks that will end up in the gutter.

Via Breitbart:

The Biden administration will spend $86 million to send more than 25 million masks to community health centers, food pantries, and soup kitchens to encourage more Americans to wear masks to help stop the coronavirus pandemic. …

[Coronavirus Response Coordinator Jeff] Zients touted the new program as another example of President Biden keeping his promise to focus on “racial equity” as he continued to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic is not about the pandemic. It is about racial equity. Furthermore, racial equity is not about racial equity. The issue is never the issue; the issue is always the consolidation of power by the Left. Everything Democrats do, including wasting our money on sanctimonious gestures, is about consolidating power.

“It’s part of our equity strategy and central to that,” Zients said.

“Equity” entails absolute government power, because nothing less can ensure that no disfavored groups are ever more successful at anything than favored groups.

On his first day in office, Biden issued an executive order mandating masks on federal property.

You must wear a mask. Here’s your free mask that you will pay for through inflation. You’re welcome.

Shoehorning “free” masks into racial politics confirms that the masks are not primarily to keep the virus from spreading. They are to suppress your individual identity. People can tell whether you are white or black even with a mask on, and that’s all anyone needs to know.

Zipped Into Pods for Band Practice

A year into the pandemic, ever so slowly, usually over the strident resistant of Biden’s masters in the teachers’ unions, students are getting back to school. From Wenatchee, Washington:

You can’t see them smiling beneath the masks, but students at Wenatchee and Eastmont high schools are glad to be back in school, even if it’s only part-time. …

While Monday is all virtual, Tuesday through Friday, every student comes into the building either in the morning or afternoon.

Eastmont Principal Lance Noell comments on what the lockdowns have done to kids by keeping them out of school:

“I will say the damage is extensive. When we talk about social-emotional damage. We will be dealing with these scars for many years.”

Psychological harm inflicted through coronavirus hysteria may continue for students, even with schools partially reopened.

According to Wenatchee Principal Eric Anderson,

“We really have an environment in this building where there is never a reason where a kid has to take their mask off.”

Having to do band practice zipped into a pod must count as keeping your mask on:

Paul Joseph Watson asks,

Growing up in a world where they are forcibly isolated from each other, starved of physical contact and cannot properly discern facial reactions while having to wear humiliating human tents.

Dropping the Mr From Mr Potato Head

The eradication of gender is nearly complete. The 70-year-old Mr Potato Head line of toys will now have the more gender-neutral name “Potato Head.”

We have not achieved utopia quite yet, because after the announcement Hasbro clarified that Mr Potato Head himself will still keep the “Mr”:

As noted at National Review,

The brand name change, which will appear on boxes this year, makes the spud the latest toy to undergo changes to conform to diversity and inclusion efforts. Others include the Thomas the Tank Engine line, which now features more female characters, and American Girl, which has begun selling a boy doll.

Let’s hope Mr and Mrs Potato Head remain legal in California, where a new bill would mandate gender-neutral children’s retail departments.

Time Praises Biden’s Clear Focus on Alzheimer’s

Finally, some liberal establishment media praise of Joe Biden that might be based on reality. Gush his cheerleaders at Time:

No president has entered the White House with as clear a focus on Alzheimer’s disease as Joe Biden.

Normally, clear focus is not associated with AD or Joe Biden.

Alzheimer’s is already our country’s most expensive disease, and continuing to manage it is more costly than developing a cure.

Biden is just the guy to demonstrate how expensive Alzheimer’s can be.

Look out, the apparatchiks at Time almost committed a thought crime. They call for an “Operation Warp Speed for Alzheimer’s”:

In the race to fight COVID-19, regulators cut red tape allowing pharmaceutical companies, the NIH and FDA to closely collaborate in an unparalleled way. By providing billions of dollars for development, production and distribution of vaccines, the government was able to incentivize participation in this important public-private partnership.

That did result in COVID-19 vaccines becoming available far earlier than expected. But although they avoid mentioning Trump in this context, it is a faux pas in the media even to imply that his administration did something constructive.

No worries. The piece goes on to castigate Trump for not wanting to spend enough money, which “would have been catastrophic.” If it is published in Time, it is Democrat propaganda.

Merrick Garland’s Selective Definition of Terrorism

America dodged a bullet when left-wing judge Merrick Garland was kept off the Supreme Court. But we might still catch the ricochet, because he has been nominated for Attorney General. Garland is a perfect fit for the job, assuming Biden is looking for a loyal, ideologically driven “wingman” like Obama’s Fast & Furious henchman Eric Holder.

Law Enforcement Today reports on Garland’s confirmation hearing:

Garland said the attacks on federal buildings in places like Portland and Seattle were not “domestic terrorism” because they occurred during hours when business was not in session.

Garland said that unlike the attacks on courthouses by left-wing rioters, the attack on the United States Capitol occurred during business hours and was domestic terrorism.

The day/night distinction allows Garland to pretend that the handful of hooligans who exploited the negligently lax security at the Capitol were terrorists, whereas equally politically motivated leftist thugs who inflicted hundreds of riots over the past year were not.

It does not matter that when leftists attacked the Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland on the night of July 2–3 with commercial grade fireworks that might have burned the place down, there were employees inside.

Hundreds of police officers were injured in just the first two weeks of the long-running Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots. That’s not terrorism. The Capitol Riot is terrorism.

A more meaningful distinction than day or night would be the honest one: political violence is terrorism and should be treated as such only if it is not coming from the Left.

Comparably alarming is Garland’s willingness to facilitate the predictable Biden attack on our Second Amendment rights. From the Salt Lake Tribune, via MSN:

When [Senator Mike] Lee [R-UT] asked if Garland supports universal background checks, he said he supports checks to allow people legally entitled to buy guns to obtain them — but also to prohibit sales to those “we are concerned about because they’re a threat, because they’re felons, or for whatever reason, [are] barred by the law” from buying them.

What does “because they’re a threat” mean? What does “for whatever reason” mean?

When Lee asked if Garland would support holding gun manufacturers liable for injuries or deaths caused by their firearms, the nominee said that while the president may have pushed that, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

The leftist strategy of rendering the Second Amendment moot by suing gun manufacturers and retailers out of existence is not a secret. Garland, a member of the Left, is probably not being honest when he claims not to have thought about it.

A moonbat, so it’s not terrorism.

Soccer Focuses on Race Brainwashing

Like so many other corners of culture, soccer appears to have been fully absorbed by the Left. That means it is no longer primarily about kicking a ball around. It is about moonbattery:

A coalition of leaders from the US soccer industry have partnered with the Common Goal movement to launch the Anti-Racist Project (ARP), an action-based approach to tackling systemic racism in soccer and society.

Major League Soccer, National Women’s Soccer League, and the United Soccer League are all involved.

It’s hard enough to find any racism against blacks in a country where the most transgressive faux pas is to fail to show cringing reverence. Looking for it in sports would be absurd. Yet fanatics always find what they are looking for.

The project aims to fund a toolkit designed by Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) experts across the US soccer landscape that will see 5,000 coaches, 60,000 young people, and 115 staff trained in over 400 communities in the first year.

Let’s hope they use environmentally friendly detergent for a brainwashing operation on such a large scale.

The group is inviting all industry stakeholders interested in becoming a part of the solution to help level the playing field and make soccer more equitable, first in the US and then internationally.

If they really want soccer to be equitable, they should stop nurturing a false sense of persecution in blacks and focus on disparities that actually exist. Why are there no quadriplegics in professional soccer? Why are the better teams allowed to score more points?
