Feminist Author Wants Germans to Stop Having Babies

At a personal level, moonbattery is usually only irritating. At a societal level, it is fatal. Feminism and environmental extremism are both lethal strains. Combine them and you get the mentality of feminist author Verena Brunschweiger.

Via Summit News:

Brunschweiger has called on Germans to stop having babies to save the planet, despite the fact that the country’s native fertility rate is already at just 1.4 children per woman.

The replacement rate to keep society from contracting is 2.1 children.

In an interview with Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung, Brunschweiger warns “we are on the brink of ecological collapse” and that the only solution is “the renunciation of one’s own reproduction.”

Germany is already a dying society because of its failure to reproduce.

“Since 1972, Germany has not seen a single year in which the number of newborns has exceeded the number of deaths,” reports Arutz Sheva.

Because Germans no longer have enough babies, they are being displaced by colonists from the Third World, who are not known for their sympathy toward feminism.

Meanwhile, the population is exploding in Africa, where environmental concerns are an extravagant luxury that few can afford to prioritize. Despite the rare exception, liberals don’t complain much about it.

Polar Bears Are in Decline, but Only as an Icon

The polar bear is in decline — not as a species, but as an icon. Leftists have used them as a propaganda tool by convincing people that these ferocious beasts, which actually hunt down humans to eat them, are cuddly and adorable, and that global warming caused by insufficiently restricted human activity will cause them to perish by melting arctic ice. However, the lies employed to sanctify polar bears as victims are coming unraveled.


In May of 2008 the US Fish and Wildlife Service listed the polar bear as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act, predicting that polar bear populations would decline by two thirds as the sea ice they rely on for hunting continued to shrink. This conclusion was not based on numbers observed but were put on the list by mathematical models woven from thin air. The actual numbers observed during these years showed the opposite to be true.

That is, where sea ice has retreated, this has not had an adverse effect on polar bears.

The real facts of the matter are that polar bear populations are increasing and that the regions with the greatest ice loss are thriving. Susan Crockford, considered to be among the world’s leading experts on this species, reports from a recent study, that the current population of between 22,000 and 31,000 is the highest it has been in the past 50 years.

The liberal establishment was so enraged by Susan Crockford’s findings regarding polar bears that it purged her from the University of Victoria.

Not only are polar bears flourishing, they are flourishing more where there is less ice.

The Chukchi Sea has lost twice as much ice as the Beaufort Sea in recent decades of slight warming. While researchers supported by the global warming alarmists had expected to find that the polar bears in the Chukchi Sea would have suffered as a result, they found the opposite to be true. The females in the Chukchi Sea were on average 70 pounds heavier and the males 110 pounds heavier than those in the Beaufort Sea.

Chukchi Sea polar bears have also been producing larger litters with heavier babies.

It appears that like virtually every other lifeform on the planet, including humans, polar bears benefit from warmer weather.

Deplatforming scientists like Dr Crockford will not keep reality hidden from the public indefinitely. As an icon of the global warming hoax, the polar bear has no future. Fortunately for moonbats, they can exploit Greta Thunberg as a replacement.

Gucci Wages War Against Toxic Masculinity

Because moonbattery is all-encompassing, it dictates even the clothes we wear — or at least the clothes fashion models wear. Paper reports on the Gucci Fall 2020 men’s fashion show in Milan earlier this month, featuring the vision of creative director Alessandro Michele:

Michele boiled down his vision for Gucci to its essence. He wanted to capture the purity of childhood, back when carefree days weren’t tainted by societal norms, particularly those relating to masculine ideals.

Maybe this attempt to capture purity explains why the show appeared to pander to pedophiles by dressing the models as little girls.

In any sector of society that is dominated by liberals, the issue is never the issue. The issue is always moonbattery. Did you think fashion shows are about clothes? Guess again:

“In a patriarchal society, masculine gender identity is often moulded by violently toxic stereotypes,” read the show notes. “A dominant, winning, oppressive masculinity model is imposed on babies at birth. Attitudes, languages and actions end up progressively conforming to a macho virility ideal that removes vulnerability and dependence. Any possible reference to femininity is aggressively banned, as it is considered a threat against the complete affirmation of a masculine prototype that allows no divergencies.”

Someone found a use for their PhD in gender studies.

“Toxic masculinity, in fact, nourishes abuse, violence and sexism,” the show notes continued. “And not only that. It condemns men themselves to conform to an imposed phallocratic virility in order to be socially accepted. In other words, toxic masculinity produces oppressors and victims at the same time.”

At least we can find a refuge from toxic masculinity in the fashion world.

You won’t know whether to guffaw or scream in horror as Gucci presents what moonbats think men should look like:

Hats off to the models. It can’t be easy for a guy to hold a somber, self-important look on his face as he strolls around in circles dressed as a schoolgirl. Marilyn Manson was an apt choice for the music, considering how hard he has worked at being freakish and repulsive.

Corporate America v Gun Rights

The Founding Fathers devised a remarkably effective system to defend us from excessive government. However, Big Government does not have a monopoly on tyrannical centralized power. Major corporations, deranged by ESG moonbattery, often feel compelled to advance a repressive left-wing agenda. This is not always limited to the nauseating posturing we see from belligerently woke companies like Nike and Procter & Gamble. sponsor warns of the threat posed to the fundamental right to bear arms, which the Constitution defends from the government but not from private companies.

The Parkland Shootings in 2018 set off a firestorm of liberal propaganda attacking gun rights. Eager to acquire PC brownie points, Corporate America theatrically toed the ideological line.

JPMorgan Chase’s Chief Financial Officer Marianne Lake crowed to reporters that the company’s relationship with firearms manufacturers “have come down significantly and are pretty limited.” Bank of America announced its intention to stop extending credit to business clients manufacturing “military-style weapons.”

“Military style” in this context does not usually refer to functionality; it basically means that liberals think the gun is scary-looking.

Citigroup … took the step of requiring any of its business partners to restrict firearms sales to those over the age of 21, as well as those who have not passed a background check. They also barred their partners from selling so-called “high capacity magazines”…

After all, no one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer — although you never know how many bullets someone might need to defend their home.

Amalgamated Bank went perhaps the furthest of all, refusing to invest any of its assets in companies involved in the manufacture of “firearms, weaponry and ammunition.”

Then there is PayPal:

PayPal, the biggest payment processing system on the Internet, cannot be used for any exercise of your Second Amendment rights

The Second Amendment has been rendered moot if private companies are able to deny gun manufacturers and retailers the use of financial services.

This goes beyond the finance industry.

Salesforce, a popular software platform for online retailers, will no longer do business with companies who sell virtually all forms of semi-automatic weapons.

We can boycott some of the companies that go out of their way to undermine our right of self-defense, like Levi’s and Dick’s. Others are harder to avoid.

Microsoft has put language in its Code of Conduct that prevents users from using [its online services] “in any way that promotes or facilitates the sale of ammunition and firearms.”

Incrementally strangling gun rights is not the only authoritarian threat posed by the private sector. Click through to read how Big Tech has been doing the same to freedom of speech — and go to the home page to stock up on discount ammunition.

Bernie Staffer Wants to “Guillotine the Rich”

Kyle Jurek, the field organizer who called for Republicans and wealthy people to be subjected to hard labor in gulags (see here and here), is hardly an outlier on the Bernie Sanders campaign. In a subsequent undercover video from Project Veritas released yesterday, we see another paid field organizer, Martin Weissgerber, announce his intention to “guillotine the rich.”

Weissgerber confirms that he is a communist (as is Sanders; see here, here, here, here, and here). Like Jurek, he wants to incarcerate Republicans in “reeducation camps.” If Sanders is not elected, his plan is violent riot.

The Washington Times quotes Weissgerber:

“I’ll straight up get armed, I want to learn how to shoot and go train. I’m ready for the f**ing revolution, bro.”

Mr. Weissgerber added, “I’m telling you. Guillotine the rich.”

The guillotine is a reference to the Reign of Terror that followed the French Revolution. The totalitarian maniacs who imposed it were called Jacobins. This confirms that it is not hyperbole to refer to the people running the Bernie Sanders campaign as Jacobins.

In the video below, Weissberger confirms that the guillotine was more humane that the gulags he wants to establish.

“We have a joke that, people we don’t like, we say send them to the gulag. What will help is when we send all the Republicans to the reeducation camps,” Mr. Weissgerber said with a laugh. “Can you imagine Mitch McConnell? Lindsey Graham?”

It is no surprise to hear Weissgerber echo Jurek’s support for gulags. These were established by Vladimir Lenin; the Nazis modeled their concentration camps on them. Gulags are key to Marxism–Leninism. You could no more impose the kind of regime Bernie Sanders wants without gulags than you could do it without confiscating firearms.

The Bernie campaign is brimming with other ideas besides gulags and wealth redistribution:

Weissgerber broached the idea of having a Sanders administration disband the legislative and judiciary branches, and operate a de facto dictatorship in the name of addressing issues like climate change.

Imagine what horrors Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, and the rest might have inflicted if the global warming hoax had been invented back in their day. You can justify any extreme of malice and tyranny when the future of the planet is at stake.

Where did Weissgerber acquire the evil ideas that fill his head?

He credited his left-wing parents and college education with forming his views, saying, “I only learned this sh*t in college when I started studying the Soviet Union.”

The MSM and Hollywood must be disappointed not to get a mention.

Like many a communist tyrant, Weissgerbil has enjoyed a lavish lifestyle that underscores the phoniness of the ideology.

Without further ado, the video:

Hillary Lays Into Bernie Sanders (Then Beats Retreat)

You had to know that if Shrillary kept shrieking long enough, eventually she would say something sensible. Sure enough, the blind squirrel finds a nut regarding Bernie Sanders:

“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done. He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

If she were to work in there somewhere that Sanders is a lifelong anti-American communist, she would accurately sum up his political career.

Shrillary stands by the statement, and would not commit to endorsing or campaigning for Sanders should he win the nomination. Some things are beneath even a Clinton.

Hat tip: Legal Insurrection.


I should have known better than to think Shrillary would ever stand by anything other than her man as he cheated on her and that only because Bill gave her access to power. In an “abrupt reversal,” she now bleats that she would endorse Sanders.

Prince Chucklehead Comes by Private Jet to Bark About CO2

You would think even moonbats could see a problem with this:

Prince Charles today flew into Davos by private jet before meeting Greta Thunberg and giving a speech to call climate change the ‘greatest threat mankind has ever faced’ and warning there is only ten years to save the planet.

By now we are so used to monstrous hypocrisy by the woke royalty of both Britain and Hollyweird that we barely remark on it, but we should never forget how staggeringly absurd it is that progressives would deny us air travel as under the Green New Deal, yet they fly around the world to climate circle jerks on private jets spewing more carbon dioxide than an average person would generate in many years. According to their ideology, climate change is caused by these very carbon emissions.

“Climate Hysteria” Struck From Newspeak Dictionary

The thought police in Germany take updates to the Newspeak Dictionary so seriously that they have a special term for words that have been officially designated as politically wrong. Via No Tricks Zone:

The Unwort des Jahres (un-word of the year) is a new or recently popularized term used in Germany which a panel deems “violates human rights or infringes upon Democratic principles”.

The panel is of course comprised of moonbats. Keeping the Newspeak Dictionary as thin as possible in hopes that this will narrow our range of thought is a progressive priority.

Last week the panel selected “climate hysteria” as the un-word of the year.

Any word or term that can be used to undermine leftist ideology will eventually be removed from the permissible vocabulary. That’s the point of having a Newspeak Dictionary.

According to Wikipedia, the panel – which has no scientific expert on it at all, chose “climate (change) hysteria” as the un-word of 2019 because it “defames climate protection efforts and the climate protection movement, and discredits important discussions about climate protection.”

If only there were a scientist on the panel, maybe he could explain how leftist ideology makes it possible to prevent the climate from fluctuating the way it always has.

Yet those who do not succumb to climate hysteria are enemies of science. It says so right on Wikipedia:

In light of scientific findings regarding climate change, [the term “climate hysteria”] is misleading and irresponsibly supports anti-scientific tendencies.

“Klimahysterie” (climate hysteria) joins a list that already includes “Alternative Fakten” (alternative facts), “Gutmensch” (do-gooder), “Lügenpresse” (liar press), and “Sozialtourismus” (welfare tourism). In whatever language, these terms do not belong in the vocabulary of the politically compliant.

Outrage: Naked Woman in Changing Room

If Europeans are going to submit to demographic conquest, they will have to change their customs. For example, Austrian women cannot just change into a swimsuit in a public pool dressing room as if they still lived in a Western country. It might offend a burkini-clad Islamic colonist.

From PolitikStube, translation compliments of Allah’s Willing Executioners:

In the capital Vienna a woman in a burkini is said to have complained about a naked person in the changing room of a swimming pool. The media are already talking about the “swimming pool affair” – there are also initial reactions from politicians, reports the Zurich press.

The Muslima came into the dressing room already wearing a burkini, with her son in tow.

She felt offended by the nakedness of the woman while changing her clothes and is said to have confronted the naked woman as well.

Good thing she wasn’t carrying a scimitar or wearing a suicide vest at the time.

Columnist Fired for Believing in Two Sexes

There is no objective fact so indisputably obvious that you cannot get fired for calling attention to it if it contradicts liberal dogma. For example, Jon Caldara says that he was fired as a Denver Post columnist for insisting that there are only two sexes.

His style did not help matters:

“My column is not a soft voiced, sticky sweet NPR-styled piece which employs the language now mandated by the victim-centric, identity politics driven media,” he said in a Facebook post. “What seemed to be the last straw for my column was my insistence that there are only two sexes and my frustration that to be inclusive of the transgendered (even that word isn’t allowed) we must lose our right to free speech.”

What a guy who believes in free speech was doing working for an establishment newspaper in this day and age is a mystery.

Caldara’s column revealed that he does not agree with the declaration by the Associated Press that biology be damned, sex and gender are not binary. Nor does he approve of a Colorado law requiring elementary school children to be indoctrinated with transgender dogma. No worries; the public is safe, now that this thought criminal has been deplatformed.

Caldara was told by editorial page editor Megan Schrader that he was the page’s most-read columnist, but that he had to walk the plank due to what Caldara calls “you-can’t-say-that-ism.” Pleasing the public is rarely a priority when it comes up against ideological orthodoxy.
