MS-13 Gang Member Who Murdered 15-Year-Old Goes by Street Name “Animal”

The liberal media worked itself into a conniption of offendedness when Trump called MS-13 gang members “animals.” They must not have heard of Joel Martinez:

A member of the notorious MS-13 street gang known as “Animal,” who admitted to the 2015 killing of a teenage boy in Massachusetts, was sentenced to 40 years in prison, officials said Tuesday.

Having murdered the 15-year-old, Martinez was qualified to be “jumped in” as a “homeboy” in MS-13. “Animal” is his street name.

Maybe “animal” is like the forbidden n-word. It’s only offensive if the wrong people say it.

Scouts Will Pass Out Condoms at World Scout Jamboree

Now that the Boy Scouts have completely succumbed to the bullying of social engineers by dropping the word “Boy” from their name so as to be more “inclusive,” their motto “Be prepared” has a new meaning. They will pass out condoms at the World Scout Jamboree to be held in West Virginia this summer.

The theme of the jamboree is “Unlock a New World.” This new world is nothing that you would want your kids to be a part of.

An alternative to the defeated Boy Scouts is Trail Life USA. Its Chairman of the Board is Florida Family Policy Council President John Stemberger, who issued a response:

“The fact that they are requiring that condoms be ‘readily accessible’ and are communicating this to everyone– including youth participants–shows that the BSA is both anticipating and facilitating sexual conduct between minors at this event. These policies are both outrageous and completely irresponsible.”

It would have been shortsighted to expect anything else, once the Boy Scouts started knuckling under to liberal demands to accept noisily homosexual troop leaders, girls who “identify” as boys, et cetera.

Future scout jamborees will probably feature drag performances. From there, they will progress to filming porno movies. With progressives in charge, there is always a new world of corruption and degeneracy to unlock.

John McDonnell: Collapsing Socialist Venezuela Is Not Socialist

Millennials may embrace socialism because they are too inexperienced to resist their brainwashing, but how is it that political veterans like the British Labour Party Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer John McDonnell glean nothing from the tragic consequences of imposing socialism, both past and present? Rather than learn, they stick their fingers in their ears, close their eyes, and shout ludicrous lies:

When asked if Venezuela was a failed socialist economic model, McDonnell said: “It went wrong. I don’t think it is a socialist country.

“I think it took a wrong turn when Chávez went and I think unfortunately since then, I don’t think they have been following the socialist policies that Chávez developed. And as a result of that they’re experiencing problems.”

If it doesn’t work, it must not be true socialism. Not much of an argument, but it’s the only counterpoint socialists have against the deafening roar of history as it continues to unfold.

If only it were true that Venezuela is no longer socialist. Then the rebuilding could begin. The country’s abundant resources could be exploited, and people would once again have food, medicine, toilet paper, jobs, safety, and freedom.

If it is up to McDonnell, we will soon be saying the same about Britain.

Some of the Dumbest Things Lawmakers Have Said About Guns

What are magazine clips? They are bullets. Also, it is legal to hunt humans in the USA. That is only the beginning of what you can learn about firearms from the pols who want to ban them in violation of the Constitution. Eric Scheiner presents some of the dumbest things lawmakers have said about guns:

Scheiner missed a couple good ones. He should expand his list to the seven dumbest things.

This clown is running for U.S. Senate in California:

Carolyn McCarthy’s husband was tragically killed because no one on a New York commuter train had a gun to defend against Colin Ferguson, who immigrated from Jamaica to murder random white people for racistly oppressing him. Instead of coming away from this horrible incident with a healthy appreciation of our constitutional right of self-defense, she went into politics as a single-issue candidate devoted to forcing us to become still more vulnerable to maniacs like Colin Ferguson:

You don’t have to be a Democrat lawmaker to be comically ignorant about guns. You just have to be a moonbat:

Drug Fiends Smoke Crack Openly After Bill de Blasio Okays Smoking Pot in Public

Remember how effectively Rudy Giuliani cleaned up New York City with the broken windows policy? Now that policy is being run in reverse by the personification of the city’s decline, Bill de Blasio:

More than a dozen druggies openly smoked crack in Washington Square Park early Tuesday, just days after Mayor Bill de Blasio said he wanted the NYPD to stop locking up people for puffing pot in public.

The police ignored the crack smokers. However, be careful lighting up a cigarette in NYC; that could get you in trouble.

Bill Nye Wants Tax on Cow Farts

Odious Netflix moonbat Bill Nye has an ingenious plan for raising the price of food — tax cow flatulence:

“Well, this is what we can do and it’s a win-win: to have a fee on carbon. So if you are raising livestock and producing a lot of carbon dioxide with your farm equipment and the exhaust from the animals, then you would pay a fee on that and it would be reflected in the price of meat, reflected in the price of fish, reflected in the price of peanuts,” Bill Nye said in a recent interview with the Daily Beast.

The point is to improve the weather. Liberals literally believe that cow farts make it be too hot out. That’s what he means by “exhaust from the animals.”

Hilariously, Nye spins this latest example of his characteristic heavy-handed authoritarianism as “free-market”:

“This would be a free-market way to reckon the real cost of a meat diet to the world,” Nye continued.

Scratching meat off the menu is a progressive agenda item. Rabbits don’t eat meat, and the objective of social engineers is to reduce us to creatures that more resemble witless, defenseless, plant-munching, constantly fornicating rabbits than human beings. That could be why the United Nations has determined that we should all go vegan.

Just in case anyone needs to be told: no, cow farts do not affect the climate:

Methane is 0.00017% of all atmospheric gases and only 0.36% of the total greenhouse gases.

But since when did scientific reality have anything to do with exploiting the global warming hoax to impose the progressive agenda?

Catering to Leftist Radicals Puts Evergreen State College into Tailspin

Evergreen State College has become emblematic of academia’s decline as it succumbs to radical moonbattery:

Between 500 and 600 fewer students will attend Evergreen State College next fall than in 2017, according to internal estimates. That means projected full-time enrollment is down as much as 17% from 3,500 last fall.

The moonbattery started to spin out of control when biology prof Bret Weinstein objected to a “Day of Absence,” during which Caucasians were forbidden to come on campus. Educrats effectively sided with the cultural Marxist mob that came after him rather than let police restore order.

Evergreen is explicitly left-wing even by the standards of academia. But too much is too much, even for some moonbats.

Kirsten Shockey of Oregon … and her husband lean left. Their son Jakob attended Evergreen, and they assumed their daughter would, too. But they were alarmed by what she called the “witch hunt” atmosphere and “erosion of free speech” on campus. As decision time approached, Ms. Shockey told [Evergreen President George] Bridges in an email, “we are watching closely.”

They didn’t like what they saw. Ms. Shockey’s daughter crossed Evergreen off her list, following the advice of her brother. “The way identity politics played out looked to us like a university going from a place of learning to a new type of anti-intellectualism,” Ms. Shockey later told me. “Free speech and good discourse was lost—and then good teachers,” she added. “This is about where the alt-left seems to be taking us.”

Where the alt-left is taking Evergreen is straight down. Fall 2018 applications are down 20%. Undergraduate retention has cratered, with less than half of first-time, first-year students enrolled last fall staying through the school year. Evergreen is a state school, but half of its funding is obtained the old-fashioned way, through tuition — which is drying up. Consequently, a couple dozen full-time adjuncts are losing their jobs, and planned construction has been put on hold.

Have the radicals running Evergreen learned their lesson? They have not:

Administrators have since doubled down on identity politics. Evergreen advertises a “bias response team” to handle perceived slights. It has increased funding for new social-justice administrators and support staffers. Evergreen employees now go through “cultural competency, sensitivity and antibias training.” And in a May 14, 2018, email on “leaner leadership at Evergreen,” Mr. Bridges outlined an administrative reorganization plan heavy on “equity and inclusion.”

Expect collapse. The University of Missouri earned a similar fate by knuckling under to Black Lives Matter goons. Other schools will follow if educrats don’t turn back from the alt-left abyss.

Owners Propose Lame Solution to Kaepernick Syndrome

Kaepernick syndrome entails pampered Black Lives Matter types among NFL players refusing to stand for the national anthem because the criminally prone zillionaires think America oppresses them for being persons of politically preferred pigmentation. Despite the full-throated support of the moonbat propagandists at ESPN, this despicable behavior has driven away fans. No worries; the owners propose a solution:

It would be up to the home team on whether both teams come out of the locker room for the anthem, and, should teams come out, 15-yard penalties could be assessed for kneeling.

Players who drop their pants and moon Old Glory during the anthem might be in for a really serious punishment, like no seconds on dessert.

Such harsh measures are balanced by the NFL’s $89 million social justice partnership and a social justice bootcamp. If you so much as buy a Dallas Cowboys t-shirt, you are financing hardcore left-wing activism.

Reader KirklesWorth has a better suggestion regarding how to deal with Kaepernick syndrome:

I think they should hold up the game until they stand. If they kneel during the anthem, stop it and restart it when they stand. If they continue to refuse to stand, their team forfeits.

Or if the NFL really wants to prove itself worthy of its fans, it could banish the kneelers from the league. In the meantime, a continued boycott is well advised.

Moonbats: Defund the NRA and Give the Money to Teachers

As a reward for parroting the hard left line on gun control, Emma Gonzalez has been hyped by the media to the point of having over 1.6 million Twitter followers. She treats this massive following to gems like this demand that we defund the NRA, which she reportedly retweeted:

Whether public school teachers deserve still more money is another issue, although it seems obvious that spending on security should be a higher priority at the moment for those who are sincere about making schools safer. What is amazing is that these fools think the NRA is funded by the very government it protects us against by defending the Constitution. Maybe they are thinking of Planned Parenthood, which unlike the NRA really is funded by taxpayers and really does kill people.

Looks like public ridicule compelled the Tweet to be deleted. Maybe moonbats can be reached in their alternate reality after all.

Principal Grovelingly Apologizes for “Party Like It’s 1776” Appearing on Prom Tickets

The objective of cultural Marxism — a.k.a. political correctness — is to destroy our culture. This cannot be done without unmooring us from our heritage and then turning us against it. The pride our history would inspire in any healthy person must be corroded into shame before progressive objectives can be achieved. That’s why the principal of Cherry Hill High School East in New Jersey has grovelingly apologized for the phrase “party like it’s 1776” appearing on tickets for the senior prom, to be held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia:

“[N]ot all communities can celebrate what life was like in 1776,” Principal Dennis Perry said in a letter to the community Friday.

“I am writing to apologize for the hurt feelings this reference caused for members of our school family,” wrote Perry.

“I especially apologize to our African American students, who I have let down by not initially recognizing the inappropriateness of this wording,” he added.

Crawl, Principal Perry. Crawl on your knees and beg forgiveness for not being sufficiently ashamed of the year that gave birth to America.

Perry said all prom-goers will receive commemorative tickets without the offensive language and vowed the school will make changes “to produce well thought out, appropriate communications.”

Offensive language. “Party like it’s 1776” is offensive language now, because persons of politically preferred pigmentation have discovered they can bully everyone else by choosing to be offended by it.

Inclusion is not about inclusion. It is about brainwashing and browbeating until we see our own nation as an obscenity best flushed away and forgotten.

Danny Elmore of the Cherry Hill African American Civic Association treated Perry to a pat on the head as a reward for his obsequiousness.

However, he said the offensive wording occurred because minorities were not part of the decision-making process.

No doubt they will convene a conference of Al Sharpton types to get permission before printing next year’s prom tickets.

Black youths represented 6.2 percent of East’s student body…

Lest that 6.2% choose to be offended, the time of America’s birth must be reviled. Political correctness entails offending the majority at every opportunity in the name of perpetually disgruntled outliers.

An online search found “party like it’s 1776” has been used to promote multiple events in Philadelphia.

Never again though, now that we know 1776 was a racist year. The Philadelphia 76ers had better change their name promptly, or they will get bullied like the Cleveland Indians did before deep-sixing Chief Wahoo.

Read Principal Perry’s letter, and weep for what political correctness has done to us:

While this mentality prevails, I shudder to think what students are taught in their history classes.

Inclusive Exclusion at the Good Life Community Bicycle Shop

All-encompassing totalitarian ideologies like moonbattery can be applied to anything — even bicycles. A sexually perplexed woman calling herself Mike Hooves “who identifies as a non-binary femme” was delighted to discover the Good Life Community Bicycle Shop in Calgary:

Every Wednesday, the shop is reserved for women, transgender people or those who identify as neither male nor female to work on or learn about bikes.

Good Life is not a traditional retailer, but rather a not-for-profit education and resource centre.

Presumably that means they don’t have to pay taxes. But they do sell bicycles.

It seems we have too many normal people riding bikes. The purpose of Good Life is “to make cycling more inclusive.” As we have come to expect, this is accomplished through exclusion. On Wednesdays, guys who understand that they are guys are not allowed in the shop.

A Reddit user going as JarritosFritos reports that he wanted to buy a cheap bike but was interrogated regarding his gender entity. He must identify as a regular person whose self-conception is not based upon psychiatry morbidity, because they wouldn’t let him in the store. That’s inclusion.

Obama Netflix Deal Likely to Be Fantastically Lucrative

To quote progressive icon Barack Obama,

“I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

But our former Wealth Redistributor in Chief could never make enough, if the Obama Netflix deal is as lucrative as believed:

Netflix has secured a deal with former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to produce series and movies for the streaming service. The former first couple will, according to an announcement Monday from the company, potentially work on scripted and unscripted series as well as docu-series, documentary films, and features under the multi-year deal. …

It is unknown how much the Obamas’ Netflix agreement — which will see them produce through their newly formed company Higher Ground Productions — is worth. In March, Penguin Random House signed the couple to a joint book deal that pays them a reported $65 million for their respective memoirs.

That $65 million is likely to be chump change compared to the Netflix deal. Netflix has been shoveling money right and left lately:

Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes jumped from ABC to Netflix in August 2017 in a deal that is estimated to be worth $100 million spanning four years.

Ryan Murphy, the uber-producer behind Glee, American Horror Story, American Crime Story and Feud, joined Rhimes at Netflix in February. He is reported to have signed a $300 million, five-year pact.

As for the Obamas,

Mark Borkowski, a media analyst and PR strategist, tells Newsweek that the Obamas’ deal could eclipse both of those. He says Netflix may offer the former first couple $500 million.

No wonder the actual amount is being kept under wraps. Not even the Moonbat Messiah could square that with the eat-the-rich quasi-Marxist rhetoric that put him in a position to rake in so much cash.

Netflix subscribers, be forewarned that this could indicate a shift further Left. Netflix had already added to its board of directors Obama’s tasteless joke of a National Security Advisor, Susan Rice.

Shaun King Jumps the Shark with Outrageous Allegations Against Texas State Trooper

When it comes to fraud, no one tops social justice warrior, former New York Daily Snooze propagandist, hate hoaxer, faux black person, swindler, plagiarist, America-basher, and all around moonbat extraordinaire Shaun King.

Earlier, he helped foment a farcical social justice crusade in Fort Worth. His latest foray into phoniness has him stirring up trouble in Texas once again. He has taken to Fakebook to claim that Sherita Dixon Cole, a person of politically preferred pigmentation and close personal friend to civil rights attorney Lee Merritt (familiar from the earlier Fort Worth shenanigans), had fallen into the hands of villains — i.e., the police:

This woman was kidnapped and raped by a Texas State Trooper— OFFICER HUBBARD, she is now being held hostage in Ellis County Jail!

King also accused the officer of threatening to murder her boyfriend and plant a gun on him. The details are salacious in the extreme:

Fortunately for Officer Hubbard, there is dashcam video:

“Upon learning of the allegations today, the department immediately took action to review the dash cam video,” stated Lonny Haschel, Texas DPS staff lieutenant, to the Daily Light via email. “The video shows absolutely no evidence to support the serious accusations against the trooper during the DWI arrest of the suspect.”

No worries; Shaun King has been revealed as a fraud many times before. This will have no effect on his credibility or his career as a social justice warrior.
