Rachel McKinnon Helps Destroy Women’s Sports

Militant transsexuals continue to make a farce of women’s sports. A brawny fellow calling himself Rachel McKinnon won big on Saturday at the Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester, inflicting upon the sport of women’s cycling what has already been done to women’s rugby, weightlifting, track, handball, football, wrestling, mixed martial arts, basketball, et cetera.

He set a women’s world record in a qualifying race, rendering the record meaningless, and took home the gold in the women’s sprint event for the 35-39 age category, just like he did last year.

Someone briefly showed the spine to speak up for the integrity of women’s sports. From Fox News:

“It’s definitely NOT fair,” Jennifer Wagner, the third-place finisher from Houston, said in response to a tweet from British conservative Katie Hopkins.

Hopkins tweeted an image of the three cyclists on the podium with this caption: “For clarity – this was the WOMENS world championships. I repeat. Women’s. Congratulations to the brave faces of silver & bronze. The world is gripped by a febrile madness.”

They must have come down on her hard, because a few days later Wagner publicly apologized to McKinnon:

“I made the comments out of a feeling of frustration, but they weren’t productive or positive. … I apologize, @rachelvmckinnon , for not properly congratulating you on race day. I hope you accept it a few days late. Congratulations and enjoy your off-season.”

But a guy who is enough of a jerk to compete as a woman is too much of a jerk to show the least trace of grace.

McKinnon refused to accept her apology: “She merely apologizes for being caught saying it publicly. She wants to ban trans women from competing. They will fail…”

McKinnon denounces Wagner and everyone else who objects to this travesty as “transphobic bigots.” He says it is his “human right” to compete as a woman. Via Sky News:

“All my medical records say female,” [McKinnon] said. “My doctor treats me as a female person, my racing licence says female, but people who oppose my existence still want to think of me as male.”

He says that people who will not go along with the charade that he is a woman oppose his existence. Actually, McKinnon opposes his own existence by not admitting to what he is. All the bureaucrats and journalists in the world can dutifully recite that he is female in accordance with liberal ideology. That has no effect on objective reality. Two plus two equals four, no matter what.

Bellows McKinnon:

“There’s a stereotype that men are always stronger than women, so people think there is an unfair advantage. By preventing trans women from competing or requiring them to take medication, you’re denying their human rights.”

Since it’s only a “stereotype” that men are stronger than women, and stereotypes are thought crimes, why have women’s sports at all? Soon we won’t, unless more people show a willingness to stand up to the arrogant thuggery that characterizes militant transsexuals.

Beto Backs Menstrual Equity Act

If ever a man could menstruate, it would be Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, so it comes as no surprise that on National Period Day he proclaimed his support for the Menstrual Equity Act:

Beto loses PC brownie points for failing to realize that women should not be singled out as the only ones who have periods. P&G knows better.

Regarding H.R. 1882: Menstrual Equity For All Act of 2019, Well Insiders writes that it will ensure that…

…free menstrual hygiene products are available to students, low-income individuals, homeless individuals, people who are incarcerated, those working for large employers and in all public federal buildings.

It’s nice to see Democrat congresscritters with something on their minds besides impeachment.

No doubt the Founding Fathers would have listed the provision of publicly financed tampons among the enumerated powers of the federal government if they weren’t such sexist patriarchs.

Two Gaping Holes in Evolutionary Theory

It is a central pillar of liberal dogma that evolutionary theory explains amazingly complex lifeforms, which evolved through random mutation and natural selection in a universe devoid of design or purpose. Two major cracks threaten to bring this pillar down: the Cambrian explosion and the DNA enigma.

Not even the most militant nihilists can use evolution to explain the profusion of new lifeforms that appeared as if from nowhere 530 million years ago. Still more problematic is the fact that DNA sequences capable of creating stable proteins are extremely rare.

Molecular biologist Douglas Axe has shown that for every DNA sequence that generates a short functional protein, there are 10 to the 77th power possible sequences that are nonfunctional. There are 10 to the 65th power atoms in the galaxy. This gives an idea of the odds that random mutation is responsible for life in all its ingenious complexity. The earth has only been around for 4.5 billion years. If random mutation worked, it would take many trillions of years to produce something as complicated as slime mold.

Extinction Rebellion Invasion of In-N-Out Burger Fails

It isn’t only in London that Extinction Rebellion moonbats have worn out their welcome. Earlier, leftists tried and failed to wage a boycott against the countermoonbat company In-N-Out Burger. Now, XR fails to take over one of its restaurants.

Watch and laugh as a dutiful employee in California allows customers to eat in peace by giving a climate kook the bum’s rush:

As noted at Townhall, an employee named Tim repeatedly told the bearded moonbat to get off the business’s property:

The lefty refused, and Tim called the cops. Then, perhaps unaware of the irony, the video cut to another protester complaining that her property, the blow horn she used to berate and harass families enjoying a nice meal and employees earning a living, was thrown in the trash. That girl ended up being handcuffed, but it is unclear if any charges were filed.

Property rights are for me not thee, from the leftist point of view.

P&G Sides With Trans Militants Against Biology

Unless someone starts pushing back against their relentless bullying, every last corner of civilization will be deformed so as to comply with the tyrannical demands of the tiny minority of mentally ill individuals who “identify” as members of the opposite sex. This pushback will never come from moonbattery-addled corporate America, and certainly not from Procter & Gamble, which is infamous for its ostentatious PC posturing (e.g., pushing black oppression balderdash, denouncing “toxic” masculinity, and celebrating morbid obesity and transsexual freakification). Eagerly folding to LGBT militants, P&G now submits to the progressive dictum that it isn’t only women who get periods.

Via Daily Mail:

The maker of Always sanitary pads has given in to claims of discrimination by transgender men and removed the ‘Venus’ symbol of the female sex from the wrapping.

Outraged women are now boycotting the leading brand after the decision by makers Procter & Gamble (P&G) to kowtow to trans activists who were born female and still use sanitary products.

Feminists have begun to realize that the only people undermining women are from other factions within their own Cultural Marxist coalition. I don’t see them pushing back against Islam, but at least they acknowledge the hostility of the transsexual corps.

Proclaims feminist Julie Bindel:

“We’re now moving towards the total elimination of women’s biology.”

Biology is a thought crime, according to LGBT dogma.

Continues Bindel:

“The women’s symbol has been used by feminists for decades. This is pure cowardice and virtue signalling from these big corporate brands who are capitulating to the trans agenda.”

With luck, P&G will continue to lose money by pandering to moonbats.

Pro-Trump Women Thrown Out of Minneapolis Cafe

You don’t have to be a well-known Republican like Rand Paul to get harassed if you try to dine in public. You just have to let it be known that you supports Republicans. Sometimes the harassment will follow you afterward — as Trump supporters learned at a vegan cafe in Minneapolis earlier this month.

Via American Greatness:

A day before President Trump’s rally at the Target Center, Jennifer Underwood drove her two friends to a protest at the downtown office of Mayor Jacob Frey, who had tried to charge an exorbitant security fee of $530,000 to the Trump campaign.

Mayor Frey ostentatiously opposed the President’s visit.

Afterward they stopped in Hard Times Cafe in MAGA hats and “Cops for Trump” shirts, not realizing they had stepped into a cave full of moonbats.

“I don’t feel safe,” said a moonbat behind the counter when they entered. “I’m afraid and don’t feel safe,” she repeated.

This is the moonbat equivalent of a dog baring its teeth and snarling.

Then a guy behind the counter denounced the pro-life women as “terrorists and baby killers.” They were soon hounded out of the establishment by both employees and customers.

Another restaurant refused them service the same day. Also, someone hit Underwood with a full can of soda while she was walking down the street. The next day, Antifa goons attacked the Trump rally, committing multiple assaults.

It’s not over. Leftists have been harassing Underwood on Facebook and giving bad reviews of her Wisconsin realty business.

Progressives insist on total hegemony. Ham-fisted bullying tactics are used to guarantee that those who do not share their ideology keep their dissent to themselves. That way, people come to believe that it is normal to be a moonbat, and give in to the natural instinct to conform.

Eating out in the face of liberal tolerance.

LGBT Bullies Shut Down First UK Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A ranks number 1 in customer satisfaction among fast food chains in the USA. However, its attempt to expand into the UK has been unsuccessful, due to the rigid intolerance of LGBT bullies who hate the company for being owned by Christians.

Via the BBC:

Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October.

A spokeswoman for the centre said “the right thing to do” was to not extend the restaurant’s lease beyond the “six-month pilot period”.

Here is the political sin that makes it intolerable that people should be allowed to eat the tasty sandwiches at Chick-fil-A:

According to [ultra-left] US news website Think Progress, in 2017 the Chick-fil-A Foundation donated millions of dollars to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Paul Anderson Youth Home and the US Salvation Army.

Campaigners from LGBT organisation, Reading Pride, said all three organisations have a reputation of being hostile to LGBT rights.

“Hostile to LGBT rights” means “not on board with the radical LGBT agenda.”

We have reached the point where donating to the Salvation Army can get a restaurant shut down.

In a statement, the UK Salvation Army said it “strongly objected to being presented as homophobic or transphobic”, adding that it had LGBT+ members and served people “without discrimination”.

Not good enough. Chick-fil-A doesn’t discriminate either. The Salvation Army is at least nominally Christian. Therefore, it is politically unclean and must be crushed in the name of “tolerance.”

Newsom Pardons Foreign Criminals

It is no exaggeration to say that the leftists running California take the side of foreign criminals against the law-abiding citizens who pay their salaries. Gavin Newsom makes it arrogantly obvious, going so far as to pardon foreigners for crimes unrelated to immigration so that they can avoid deportation.

Via Fox News:

The governor, a Democrat, pardoned 38-year old Victor Ayala, who in 2001 at age 21 was convicted of felony robbery and sentenced to probation for pushing a security guard while shoplifting from an electronics store, The Sacramento Bee reported. He also had four prior misdemeanor convictions for theft and a hit-and-run in which no one suffered injuries, Los Angeles’ KTLA-TV reported.

Ayala hails from El Salvador.

Newsom also pardoned 41-year-old Thear Seam, who at age 18 was convicted of robbing a man’s wallet and backpack. He was convicted as an accessory the next year after leading police on a high-speed chase while helping another man, a car thief whole stole a separate vehicle, evade arrest, KTLA reported.

Seam hails from Cambodia.

The third immigrant to be pardoned was Arnou Aghamalian, 42, who as a 22-year-old in 1999 was convicted of helping his cousin set a nightclub owner’s unoccupied car on fire after a dispute.

Aghamalian hails from Iran.

None fits the profile of Republican voters, so all are welcome in Gavin Newsom’s California.

At least these three already served their sentences. Given that progressives invariably progress to ever more intolerable outrages, we can expect to see future criminals pardoned on the grounds of being illegal aliens before time is served.

California Shuts Down Freelance Journalism

Consequences already begin to unfold regarding the previously discussed war on freelance employment in the authoritarian dystopia of California. Thanks to Assembly Bill 5, as of January 1 it will be illegal for freelancers to write more than 35 articles for an outlet in the course of a year. This must be because writing 36 articles would be a threat to public safety; otherwise, the moonbats lording it over California would have no grounds for applying this garrote to the neck of freelance journalism.

The bill was signed by the odious Gavin Newsom and written by San Diego assemblymoonbat Lorena Gonzalez. What could motivate such ostensibly senseless malice? Hardball liberal politics, of course.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

Gonzalez, who previously worked as a labor organizer […barks] that freelancers can be used to break newsroom unions like the ones formed last year at The Los Angeles Times and this year at The Ringer.

The more people work for unions, the more lose part of their income through union dues into the voracious maw of the Democrat Party. Therefore, nonunion employment must be abolished.

Why is it precisely 35 articles — nowhere near enough to make a living — that are permitted? Shrugs Gonzalez,

“Was it a little arbitrary? Yeah. Writing bills with numbers like that are a little bit arbitrary.”

Preventing tyrants like Gonzalez from passing arbitrary laws that deny us the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is the whole point of the USA.

Theoretically, AB 5 will compel publishers and newsrooms to hire the freelancers as full-time employers. Neither labor experts nor freelancers expect this to happen. About 7,200 people have lost media jobs so far in 2019.

The pain has already begun:

[S]everal freelance writers who spoke to THR say that various out-of-state employers — some with offices in California — have already told them they’re cutting ties with California freelancers. … THR has additionally reviewed several job notices in transcription, blogging and SEO writing that have explicitly stated that California freelancers will not be considered.

This is only a tiny microcosm of the damage California is inflicting on those who work in the modern gig economy. Freelance journalists have actually been granted an exception to AB 5; that’s why the bureaucrats benevolently allow them to publish 35 articles.

No American could find it acceptable that the likes of Gavin Newsom and Lorena Gonzalez arbitrarily deny thousands of people their right to earn a living. Whether there are enough Americans left in California to do anything about it remains to be seen.

Horrifyingly if unsurprisingly, leftist radical Elizabeth Warren aggressively supports Assembly Bill 5. She will probably be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee. Lesser candidates Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttwhatever endorse it too.

If something like AB 5 is imposed at the national level, it will throw millions of people out of work. But then, Warren et al also endorse the Green New Deal, which could throw tens of millions out of work. The damage these maniacs would inflict on the country is incalculable.

Tim Pool is among the many gasping in astonishment at this outrage:

Video Fauxcahontas No Longer Wants Us to See

You would think Elizabeth Warren, Harvard Law’s Historic First Woman of Color, would be proud of her 1/1,024 Indian heritage. Yet she wants to scrub a video celebrating that very heritage from the Internet.

Tyler Zed reminds her that the Internet is forever:

Soon Fauxcahontas could be America’s Historic First Female Socialist Tyrant of Color.
