Pup Play

The next normal?

Progressives have had so much success at bullying us into accepting the perverse as normal, the boundaries of aberration are barely discernable. It is unclear whether we are ideologically obligated to celebrate this in order to be in compliance with political correctness, but if we aren’t, we soon will be:

Some friends like to meet in the pub for a drink, but two friends from Nuneaton [England] have found a unique way to spend their downtime – dressing up as a ‘human pup’ and his master.

Lucky, 35, lives with Oz, 60, and acts just as a dog would – playing fetch, enjoying a belly rub, going for walks in his £1,000 latex outfit, and sometimes sleeping in a cage.

The pair met around three years ago on an internet dating site after Oz, who had previously been a pup himself, decided to become a master after retiring.

As a rule, “pup play” is not about fetching sticks and belly rubs, but rather hardcore sexual depravity. According to The Guardian, it “grew out of the BDSM community.” Although “Lucky” says he and Oz are “not sexually together,” both are homosexuals. Lucky also says,

‘I just bit the bullet and said I would like to go to Birmingham Pride dressed as a pup.’

Pretending to be a Latex dog in the context of glamorizing lifestyles that center on unnatural and exceedingly unhealthy sex acts — there’s something to be proud of.

The authorities tell us that if a man “identifies” as a woman, he literally is a woman. By the same logic, Lucky is literally a dog. I hope they don’t let him vote.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

East Tennessee State University Student Tristan Rettke Arrested for Being Politically Incorrect

As Trump keeps reminding us, there is a difference between standing up to political correctness and being an obnoxious jackass. But it is possible to do both at once. Alarmingly, you can be arrested for it:

An East Tennessee State University student was arrested Wednesday after going to a Black Lives Matter protest on campus wearing a gorilla mask and handing out bananas.

Tristan Rettke, an 18-year-old freshman, wore overalls and a gorilla mask and, wandering barefoot while holding a burlap sack with a Confederate flag and a marijuana leaf on it, offered bananas to students who were protesting, according to a report by ETSU police. He was arrested and charged with civil rights intimidation.

Civil rights intimidation. Nonsense. He was arrested for being politically incorrect.

According to campus police, after being read his rights Rettke told officers that a couple of days earlier he had seen on social media that there would be a Black Lives Matter event in the “free speech” area of Borchuck Plaza on the Johnson City, Tenn., campus.

Apparently the concept of “free speech” no longer extends to speech regarded by the authorities as ideologically reprehensible.

This is a classic case to test whether we still enjoy the crucial liberties secured by the First Amendment. Most will agree that Rettke was behaving like a jerk. But being a jerk is not against the law in a free country. If jerks don’t have freedom of speech, no one does; we only have the right to parrot speech that has been approved.

If Rettke can’t speak his mind, neither can anyone.

Zoo Animals Starve as Venezuela Reaches End-Stage Socialism

Compliments of Edward Przydzial.

If you won’t help fight encroaching socialism for the children, then do it for the animals:

At least 50 animals have died in the last six months at the Caricuao zoo in Caracas, Venezuela, due to widespread food shortages that are affecting both man and beast in the socialist nation.

Marlene Sifontes, a union leader for employees of state parks agency Inparques which oversees zoos, told Reuters that the zoo lost Vietnamese pigs, tapirs, rabbits and birds after the animals went weeks without eating. Others animals at the zoo are in danger of severe malnutrition. Lions and tigers, which should be on a carnivorous diet, are being fed mango and pumpkin just to get something in their empty stomachs, while an elephant is being fed tropical fruit instead of its usual diet of hay, the union leader said. According to one report, the big cats are being fed slaughtered thoroughbred racehorses from a nearby race track.

It is important to keep zoo animals alive, because Venezuelans don’t know when they will be reduced to eating them.

At least carrion birds are eating well. Normally they wait until their meal is dead and decomposing, but this starving bison is close enough:

Translation: “Other animals suffer from hunger at Caricuao Zoo. This bison is so weak that it is bitten by vultures.”

On the positive side, the bison has the satisfaction of dying in the great cause of imposing economic equality.

Veterans’ Bodies Left to Decompose in VA Hospital Morgue

After 40 vets died while languishing on a secret waiting list at the Phoenix VA hospital, Obama proclaimed that he took the issue of VA mismanagement “very seriously.” He even barked, “I will not stand for it. There must be consequences.” The problem ought to be right up his alley, considering that it involves Big Government providing healthcare. Two years have passed; the Moonbat Messiah should have it all fixed by now. Just to make sure, let’s check in on the state that launched his political career:

An Illinois Veterans Affairs hospital already under fire for excessive wait times, festering black mold and kitchen cockroaches [repeatedly served in food] faces a new shame – the bodies of dead patients left unclaimed in the morgue for up to two months without proper burial, whistleblower documents allege.

The whistleblower, whose identity is not being revealed for fear of retaliation, complained last month to the VA’s inspector general about the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital’s handling of veterans’ remains in cases where families have not come forward to claim the body. The complaint singled out Christopher Wirtjes, chief of Patient Administrative Services, saying “The Chief of PAS has the funds available, yet has no sense of urgency to lay the veteran to rest.”

Of course the funds are available; the Obama Administration has been setting new records for revenue. If giving money to bureaucrats solved problems, we would have heaven on earth by now.

On at least one occasion, a body had liquefied and the bag burst when staff had attempted to move it, said Alissa McCurley, [Senator Mark] Kirk’s deputy chief of staff.

Politics these days makes you feel like you are living in a horror movie. If only we really were. Then we could watch the vets escape the morgue and seek their just revenge.

Avoid the morgue.

Moonbat Fashion

The Pajama Boy look does a good job of expressing the softness and childishness of the modern liberal, but we aren’t quite at the point where people walk around in public wearing jammies (except to Walmart). For suitable attire for facing the outside world, fashion-conscious moonbats are referred to Shrillary’s online store, where her supporters can acquire a unisex “Everyday Pantsuit Tee” for only $30:


If you are low T and proud of it, raise a limp-wristed hand in the air for Shrillary!

University Offers Costume Review to Combat Accidental Halloween Microaggressions

It’s not too soon for moonbats to start fretting over whether their Halloween costumes are racist. The University of Wisconsin–Lacrosse offers guidance:

In a comical attempt to avoid offending anyone else on campus, the Ethnic and Racial Studies Department of UW LaCrosse (which offers students classes in white privilege and “Food and Race in the United States”) is holding a Halloween costume review on October 5th.

Presumably anyone who shows up at the review in a costume determined to be racist will be offered amnesty, so long as they apologize profusely and promise never to wear it again.

Since wearing a costume for Halloween is an American tradition, don’t expect progressives to let up until they have managed to abolish it.

A chance to learn something at college.

Target Pays High Price for Trying to Ram Transgender Sickness Down Customers’ Throats

These days, most major companies will go to great lengths to convince the public that they are on the cutting edge of political correctness. But in this regard few can keep up with Target, which as a result of its aggressive promotion of psychosexual aberration is becoming the canary in the coalmine of corporate moonbattery:

In the wake of its five-month-long [transgender] bathroom policy, Target (TGT) Corporation continues to implode.

Within a month after the misguided policy, the company’s market cap had already declined by $9 billion compared to where it should have been had Target kept its pre-April 19 correlation with its primary competitors, Walmart (WMT) and Costco (COST).

By late May, the market cap hit reached $10.5 billion. As of the second week of June, the loss was $11 billion.

That is a high price to pay for making sure everyone knows that male perverts are welcome in women’s restrooms and dressing rooms in keeping with Target’s overall moonbat agenda (e.g., see here, here, here, here, and here).

Second-quarter earnings data are now out, showing that Target’s earnings plummeted nearly 10%, with projected lower sales estimates for the remainder of 2016. Net sales declined more than 7% from the same period year over year. …

Had Target’s market cap continued to follow close pace with Walmart, as it had done in the months before the bathroom policy was implemented, it would have increased 1% compared to its value on April 19 of this year. Instead, Target’s market cap is now down 23.3% over this time frame.

People are heading for the lifeboats:

Corporate executives are leaving in droves. Just 10% of the most senior executives in place two years ago remain with the company, including two major losses during the past month.

Let that be a lesson to other companies that put progressive social engineering ahead of their own customers, who do not necessary live inside the liberal elite’s ideological bubble.

University of Michigan Professors Will Face Punishment for Not Using Preferred Pronouns

What would happen if someone in the leftist fever swamps of academia refused to play along with the bizarre nonsense of referring to people with incorrect or recently invented pronouns? He/she/ze would be punished, of course:

The University of Michigan [Tuesday] unveiled a new webpage that allows students to choose their preferred pronouns, including “they” and “ze.”

Preferred pronouns will appear on class rosters, and if professors accidentally use the wrong pronoun, “you can acknowledge that you made a mistake and use the correct pronoun next time,” said the university’s provost and vice president for student life in a campus-wide email announcement.

What happens if the professor does not use the “correct” (i.e., incorrect) pronoun the next time?

A university spokesman tells Heat Street, “If there were a persistent pattern of ignoring a student’s preference, we would address that as a performance matter.”

That is to say, compliance is mandatory. Ve have vays of making you call boys “she” or “ze.”

Say “ze” or Dr. Szell will fix your teeth.

California Decriminalizes Child Prostitution

No doubt the moonbats running California mean well. But please:

California Gov. Jerry Brown is approving legislation decriminalizing prostitution for minors and taking other steps to make life after human trafficking easier for those forced into it.

The Democratic governor announced Monday he signed SB1322 to ban police from charging people under the age of 18 with prostitution.

According to liberal dogma, there literally is no such thing as a child prostitute. Therefore, the idea is not to punish child prostitution, but to prevent children from being punished or having blemishes on their record as a result of a nonexistent crime.

Certainly small children victimized by sex traffickers should not be held accountable for crimes committed against them. But 17-years-olds who finance their drug habits by selling sex do not magically become prostitutes on their 18th birthday. As our culture is driven ever deeper into decay and degeneracy by the progressives in charge, the same will increasingly hold true for 13-year-olds.

Decriminalized by Governor Moonbeam et al.

For Norwegian Children, Sex Change Is Only a Mouse Click Away

In the dark days of the past, people suffering from severe psychosexual disorders had to subject themselves to horrific and expensive procedures involving chemical disfigurement and surgical mutilation to get officials to indulge them in their delusion that they are what they are not. But in Norway these days, passing yourself off as a member of the opposite sex is as easy as clicking a mouse:

Ten-year-old Anna Thulin-Myge’s passport shows what looks like an ordinary Norwegian girl wearing her long, blond hair fastened with a clip. It lists her first name as Anna, but under sex it says “M.”

“That means male,” Anna says, running her finger across the document. “In some weeks I’m going to have a new passport, and then it’s going to say ‘F.’”

Norway, a wealthy, progressive nation of 5 million people, recently became the fifth country in the world to allow adults to legally change genders without a doctor’s agreement or intervention. Argentina, Ireland and Denmark have similar laws. But only Malta and Norway have extended the liberalized rules to children.

Provided they have parental consent, Norwegian children as young as 6 can now self-identify as male or female, effectively overruling the gender assigned to them at birth. Anna is one of nine minors in the country to have taken advantage since the new rules were adopted in June.

With no requirement for surgery or counseling, the process is as easy as filing a tax return. So far, Norway has not refused a single application. Soon, Anna will receive the official letter confirming the government recognizes her as the girl she always knew herself to be.

As you can tell by the deliberate misuse of pronouns above, the media is already eager to recognize little boys as little girls.

The idea that we are “assigned” a gender at birth the way we might be assigned a government identification number is possibly the most insane notion progressives have ever tried to ram down our throats. “Anna” (a.k.a. Adrian) is not a boy because Norwegian bureaucrats say he’s a boy, any more than he is a girl because WaPo wants us to pretend he is. He is a boy because every cell in his body is male.

The full-court press to overrule biological reality only makes sense if you understand why Winston Smith had to be made to believe that 2 + 2 = 5 in George Orwell’s 1984.

Christine Jentoft … welcomes the ability to self-identify, saying it’s not the government’s place to decide her gender.

“The only people who know about my genitals are my doctor, my girlfriend and me,” said Jentoft, who is the biological father of a 5-year-old girl and identifies as a lesbian.

If you were able to read that with no temptation to gasp, laugh, or toss up your lunch, congratulations. You have been successfully reconditioned. Treat yourself to a glass of Victory Gin.

2 + 2 = 5

United Nations Demands America Pay People to Be Black

The primary financial supporter of the United Nations is the United States. American taxpayers are forced by the federal government to pay it a staggering $8 billion per year. Here is what we are getting for the money:

The history of slavery in the United States justifies reparations for African Americans, argues a recent report by a U.N.-affiliated group based in Geneva.

This conclusion was part of a study by the United Nations’ Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, a body that reports to the international organization’s High Commissioner on Human Rights. The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday…

Yes, there was slavery here 2 centuries ago, same as in a lot of other countries. We spent 620,000 American lives in the Civil War to end it. Since then we have spent $22 trillion on the welfare state, much of which could be seen as a form of reparations. In addition, blacks are blessed with superior legal status; systematic racial discrimination causes them to be hired, promoted, and accepted to universities at the expense of more deserving candidates of other races in the name of Affirmative Action.

Yet the sanctimonious weenies at the UN demand we pay reparations. They bark their demands from Switzerland, which would no doubt be ruled by Nazis if not for blood and treasure spent by Americans to make the world a better place.

Ideological thugs on the left will not stop clubbing us over the head with the race shillelagh until we finally say enough is enough.

No one alive today ever legally owned a slave in the United States. Therefore, none of us owes a penny to the slaves, none of whom is alive anyway. Issue over.

If anyone owes reparations to blacks, it is the United Nations, for the African children raped by “peacekeepers,” not 2 centuries ago but currently.

Homecoming King and Queen Made Gender Neutral

Progressivism represents a war of total eradication against American culture. There is not a single tradition that will not be perverted into grotesquerie and then swept away. For example:

A high school in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Bethesda, Md. has eliminated the traditional roles of homecoming king and queen in favor of a completely gender-neutral “homecoming court.”

Instead of choosing one boy and one girl to be crowned after an upcoming homecoming football game, students at Bethesda-Chevy Chase (B-CC) High School will simply choose two students to be honored regardless of their gender. The winners could be a traditional boy-girl duo, but they could also be two boys, two girls, or even two people who both reject the gender binary entirely. Finalists will have the option to be crowned as a “king,” “queen,” or generically as “royalty.”

Jacob Rains, head of the school’s student government, said it was an opportunity to move beyond an oppressive tradition.

All traditions are oppressive. That’s why they need to be rendered farcical, so that they will wither away and pointy-headed progressive masterminds will have a clean slate upon which to impose a new society.

“It provides an opportunity for all students to be involved in something that was exclusionary,” Rains told The Washington Post. “It is really not our job, especially with a gender-neutral and transgender population at B-CC, to tell people that boys have to be kings and girls have to be queens. Who are we to put people into those categories?”

High school kids are not coming up with these lunatic notions on their own.

That which is wholesome and traditional must be corrupted and destroyed.

Religion of Peace Coloring Book

ISIS now produces coloring books:

“Alphabet Tutor 2,” purportedly released by the Islamic State, features rifles, grenades, and what appears to be a suicide vest in a workbook created for the children of jihadists. The workbook is available as an app download on ISIS terrorist channels and is a sequel to the June “Huroof,” which is also an alphabet teaching app for non-Arabic speaking children of Islamists.

You can imagine what the pictures look like. Here’s an example:


Be sure the kids are well stocked with red crayons in case there are pictures showing what Islamists do to Christians.

Obama’s State Department Has Spent Hundreds of $Millions to Refurbish Overseas Mosques

Just as biological weapons might be bred in a petri dish, radical Islam is bred in mosques. Many of these mosques around the world have received expensive upgrades — at your expense:

A CBS news investigation found that the Obama State Department is sending hundreds of millions of dollars to save mosques overseas — outraging taxpayer advocates and raising enormous questions about aid to potentially terror-supporting groups with U.S. foreign aid.

The State Department has tried to pass this off as “fighting Islamic extremism by building relationships with Islamic leaders”.

A more apt description would be, “supporting the notion that America is weak by funding people who want to kill us.”
