Bar in Trouble for Tolerating Proud Boys, Supporters of POTUS

Can a group openly support the President of the United States these days and not be a hate group? Apparently not in Los Angeles, as the Proud Boys learned last weekend by wearing the wrong hat into The Griffin:

A conflict at an Atwater Village bar has gone viral. One of the groups involved has been identified as a hate group. …

People in the neighborhood identified the group as the Proud Boys. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, it’s a hate group. Neighbors say they complained to management, but the Proud Boys were allowed to stay.

How dare management allow the Proud Boys to stay even though the leftist bullies at SPLC call them a “hate group”? By the way, the SPLC incited a terror attack by labeling the Family Research Council as a hate group. It has also labeled human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali an “anti-Muslim extremist.” Even Ben Carson made one its hate lists.

No worries, moonbats; The Griffin will be punished for tolerating the wrong kind of people:

Go to the ProudBoysLosAngeles Twitter page and you will see stuff that doesn’t seem all that racist, like this retweet:

But if the SPLC says they are a hate group, that is good enough for militant moonbats, who have been demonstrating their tolerance by giving The Griffin one-star Yelp reviews and by yelling at the bar as they pass by.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Denounces Capitalism and Occupation of Palestine

Such pillars of the Democratic establishment as the Washington Post are delighted to acknowledge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as the new face of their party. To generate such enthusiasm, a young woman who less than a year ago was working as a bartender must have something going for her other than the Woman of Color status that gets WaPo so excited.

What she has is reflexive and unmitigated moonbattery, which she pushes to extremes that will send moderate voters (assuming there are any in her Bronx/Queens district) hiding under the furniture. For example, in a friendly interview with PBS, she crowed that capitalism — which has performed miracles by radically improving the standard of living of the human race as a whole — won’t be around forever:

“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” Ocasio-Cortez explained, lamenting that people are employed but having to work long hours, “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world,” she continued.

She may be right that capitalism will not always exist. It requires the freedom that leftists systematically undermine. If Ocasio-Cortez et al. prevail, society will collapse into the poverty that accompanies tyranny.

Alexandria further buttressed her hard-left credentials by referring to “the occupation of Palestine.” Hamas and other Islamic terror groups that use similar rhetoric to justify killing Jews will be delighted:

This adolescent radical mentality has become the center of gravity in the Democratic Party. Even if she has no idea what she is talking about, all Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has to do is keep being a Woman of Color and remember to always bear left. She will go far.

WeWork Declares Itself to Be a Meat-Free Organization

To get an idea of how moonbats’ totalitarian inclinations might manifest themselves if Democrats find their way back to power, look to the leftist virtue signaling that now characterizes corporate America. For example, WeWork has declared itself to be a “meat-free organization.”

The global network of shared office spaces said in an email to employees last week that “moving forward, we will not serve or pay for meat at WeWork events and want to clarify that this includes poultry and pork, as well as red meat.” The company’s co-founder and chief culture officer, Miguel McKelvey, said the new policy was one way it could do more to become environmentally conscious.

According to moonbat ideology, eating meat makes it be too hot outside.

Paying for meat includes expenses when employees are called upon to entertain or travel.

Such environmentally tied policies on employee behavior — such as tracking printing habits or financial rewards for public transit use — could be a sign of things to come, as employers seek to prove their environmental mettle with millennial workers attracted by such progressive policies.

If corporations would impose this lunacy, so would the federal government, once the wrong people take the helm.

Other WeWork initiatives have focused on abolishing plastic. Imagine going back to a world made of wood, metal, animal hides, and stone. But even that would not do for these luddites, who would complain that wood oppresses forests and animal hide comes from beasts that make the weather too hot with their farts. No doubt using metal and stone will be revealed as violations of the sanctity of the Earth. Dung huts might be okay though.

London Breed Reveals Plan to Clean Up San Francisco

Even Mayor London Breed has noticed that the streets of San Francisco have been reduced to a cesspool by runaway moonbattery. She wants the junkies and bums who have overrun the place to clean up after themselves. Maybe the homeless advocacy groups the city shovels money at to make the place so attractive to derelicts will help. Ms. Breed gives it a try:

“I work hard to make sure your programs are funded for the purposes of trying to get these individuals help, and what I am asking you to do is work with your clients and ask them to at least have respect for the community — at least, clean up after themselves and show respect to one another and people in the neighborhood,” Breed told the Investigative Unit, referencing her conversations with nonprofit groups aimed at serving the homeless.

Addicts and lunatics are sure to stop defecating on the sidewalks and flinging their used needles right and left once they are told that this behavior does not demonstrate respect for the community. If not, London will back up her polite request with enforcement… or maybe not:

When pressed about whether her plan calls for harsher penalties against those who litter or defecate on city streets, Breed said “I didn’t express anything about a penalty.” Instead, the mayor said she has encouraged nonprofits “to talk to their clients, who, unfortunately, were mostly responsible for the conditions of our streets.”

While the homeless persons are getting their talking-to, maybe they could also be told to lay off the heroine and get jobs.

Soon after her inauguration, Breed took a stroll to see just how bad the city has become. The video below shows someone prepping a needle as she walks by:

The city has been spending hundreds of $millions per year on homeless people, yet — mystifying to moonbats — the homeless population is not going down.

California Government Forced to Return $331 Million It Stole

Brace yourselves for a big surprise. The moonbats running California are thieves. They expropriate wealth on behalf of the allegedly put-upon and then spend it for their own purposes:

When California received $410 million in 2012 as part of a nationwide settlement with major banks accused of abusive foreclosures, Gov. Jerry Brown used $331 million to pay state agencies in housing and other programs to cover their deficits.

Now a state appeals court has ordered the money be used for its original intent: to help homeowners who suffered foreclosures.

This looting spree was a classic example of blaming (and then robbing) the victim. Democrats compelled banks to apply Affirmative Action to loans. When loans unsurprisingly were not repaid, causing the housing collapse and the Great Recession, Democrats blamed banks for making the supposedly predatory loans they had forced the banks to make. Shame has no place in today’s Democratic Party.

According to the Third District Court of Appeal in Sacramento,

The money was “unlawfully diverted” from a settlement fund that was designated for programs directly assisting homeowners…

“Unlawfully diverted” means “stolen.”

This is rich:

Of the $410 million, at least $331 million was designated by then-state Attorney General Kamala Harris for a fund devoted to programs assisting homeowners who were harmed by the wave of foreclosures. The programs included … efforts to investigate and combat financial fraud.

Now a Democrat Senator, Harris will be uninterested to hear that we have found financial fraud on a massive scale, committed by the state government thoroughly controlled by her party.

After the fund was established, however, the state’s Finance Department appropriated the money, with legislative approval, to pay off deficits to the state agencies in charge of state housing bonds and other consumer-related measures.

Here I was thinking that Democrats only confiscate money so as to bestow it upon the downtrodden poor.

Dutch Wanted Out of Their Own Country by Foreign Colonists

Los Angeles isn’t the only place where foreign colonists want the local population to get out:

The leader of the Muslim DENK party in the Netherlands has caused controversy by telling Dutch citizens to leave their own country if they don’t like the increasing number of Muslim migrants populating Dutch cities.

“If they don’t like a changing Netherlands in which people with different cultures live… like in the city of Zaandam or the neighbourhood of Poelenburg, they should get lost,” Tunahan Kuzu said during an interview.

Holland is not changing for the better, thanks to the underage Dutch sex slaves, Islamic indoctrination in schools, threats of violence against Jews, and massive burden on the welfare state that have resulted from the tsunami of Muslim colonists.

Freedom of Speech as Right-Wing Conspiracy

The broader free speech conspiracy has been ongoing at least since the Constitution went into effect in 1789. But now the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) has exposed it by proclaiming laws that defend freedom of speech on college campuses as a “problematic” right-wing conspiracy:

Framing free speech legislation as a “right-wing” conspiracy, the AAUP also complains that such bills often establish mandatory minimum penalties for students who are repeatedly found guilty of infringing on others’ free speech, as well as allowing students to sue if their First Amendment rights have been trampled.

“Campus free-speech legislation is one piece of a much larger well-funded, right-wing effort to disempower public higher education in the United States,” the AAUP tells members in a primer on the subject.

According to the AAUP, the campus free speech initiative “distracts from … equity.” True enough; equity will not have been imposed until free speech has been abolished.

Texas Senate Candidate Beto O’Rourke Raises Funds in Tinseltown

Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat challenger for esteemed countermoonbat Ted Cruz’s Senate seat, is a real man of the people. Not Texas people though; Hollyweird people:

Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), who is seeking to unseat Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), is set to return to Los Angeles on Monday to raise money for his campaign at a fundraiser being held at the home of actress Nancy Stephens and director-producer Rick Rosenthal.

According to Vanity Fair, ticket prices start at $250 per person and individuals who contribute $2,700 or raise at least $5,000 will earn a spot on the host committee. This will reportedly be O’Rourke’s third time visiting the Golden State for fundraising events.

Other entertainment moonbats who back O’Rourke include Chelsea Handler, Alyssa Milano, and Rosie O’Donnell.

As a rule, Texans are despised by Hollyweirdos. But they make an exception in O’Rourke’s case, because they know he would represent their own values and interests, not those of Texans.

Thanks to limousine leftists, O’Rourke raised more than twice as much as Cruz in the first quarter. He will get his butt kicked anyway, unless the world turns upside-down.

Dr Michelle Cretella Eviscerates Transgender Ideology

Is it medically responsible to behave as if people with psychosexual delusions literally are members of the opposite sex? No it is not, as lucidly explained in this long but highly informative video from last November. It shows TFP Student Action interviewing Dr Michelle Cretella, President of the American College of Pediatricians. This esteemed countermoonbat confirms that transgender ideology is a pernicious lie and that its application to children is child abuse:

“Biology is reality, not bigotry.” Too bad these words of wisdom have been ignored by the same moonbats who sanctimoniously accuse skeptics of the global warming hoax of rejecting science.

MSNBC’s Katy Tur: Why Honor Constitution Now That We Are More Progressive?

Should America remain a constitutional republic, or should we disable the Constitution by pretending it says whatever the party in charge wants it to say at any given time? MSNBC’s Katy Tur (former companion of Keith Olbermann) gives us her answer:

“Based on where Americans stand on the issues, and Americans have really moved in a much more progressive direction over the years, do you think it’s appropriate to continue to take such a strict, originalist view of the Constitution, given it’s 2018 and not 1776?” Tur asked Republican guest and Hillbilly Elegy author J.D. Vance.

She works for NBC News. You can’t expect her to be well informed enough to know about the amendment process.

If Katy Tur et al. get their way, we will get so many tyrannical Roe v. Wade and Obergefell v. Hodges type decisions that have nothing to do with the Constitution and everything to do with imposing a leftist social agenda by legislating from the bench that eventually the charade of pretending to have a Constitution and an elected legislature will be dispensed with.
