Electric Vehicles Oppress Deep Sea Creatures

First, they tell us that we must drive costly, unreliable, dangerous, and inefficient electric cars because fossil fuels are offensive to the climate. Then they tell us that electric cars are offensive to the ocean because that’s where we will have to mine the massive materials requirements. Chides WaPo:

To manufacture electric vehicles, batteries and other key pieces of a low-carbon economy, we need a lot of metal. Countries and companies are increasingly looking to mine that copper, cobalt and other critical minerals from the seafloor.

A new analysis of the Clarion-Clipperton Zone, a vast mineral-rich area in the Pacific Ocean, estimates there are some 5,000 sea animals completely new to science there. The research published Thursday in the journal Current Biology is the latest sign that underwater extraction may come at a cost to a diverse array of life we are only beginning to understand.

They would let us ride mules, except animals offend the climate by farting. So it looks like we will have to walk.

New York Bestows Oppression Privilege Upon the Obese

Congratulations to the morbidly obese. New York City has bestowed upon them the most cherished of privileges; they are officially oppressed:

New York City Mayor Eric Adams signed a bill Friday declaring obesity a new legally protected class.

The oppressed are first hired, last fired, and go to the front of the line for goodies passed out by Big Government.

The legislation signed by the New York mayor bars individuals from being discriminated against for their height and weight for access to employment or public housing.

This is great news for white people who don’t like it at the bottom of the caste system, but who have too much self-respect to pretend to be homosexual. Now the racially and sexually incorrect can eat their way up the social ladder.

Airlines aren’t going to like where this is heading. Barks Adams:

“We all deserve the same access to employment, housing, and public accommodations, regardless of our appearance.”

That means protected groups get priority access not only to jobs and housing, but “public accommodations.” Let’s hope LaGuardia will still let planes land that haven’t been redesigned specifically for the Lizzo contingent, in accordance with demands.

The morbidly overweight are not the only beneficiaries. Let’s not forget lawyers:

New York City Republican City Councilman Joseph Borelli warned in April the new law will “empower people to sue anyone and everything.”

Despite the superior status plus-size people have achieved, reality continues to be fatphobic, punishing obesity with susceptibility to all manner of deadly diseases (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.). But that doesn’t matter, because under liberal rule, reality has been canceled.

Who to Round Up First, White Men or White Women?

America has been very good to Jane Fonda. Although she committed straightforward treason for which she should have been hanged and relentlessly spews toxic moonbattery, we have showered her with wealth and fame for many decades. She repays American society by declaring that white men should be rounded up and imprisoned for offending the climate.

Shrieks Hanoi Jane:

“Unfortunately, the people that have the least responsibility for [the imaginary climate crisis] are hit the hardest — Global South, people on islands, poor people of color. It is a tragedy that we have to absolutely stop. We have to arrest and jail those men — they’re all men [behind this].”

The shrieking continues:

“It’s good for us all to realize there would be no climate crisis if there was no racism,” she said. “There would be no climate crisis if there was no patriarchy. A mindset that sees things in a hierarchical way. White men are the things that matter and then everything else [is] at the bottom.”

Her solution is consistent with her communist sympathies: the tried and true gulag.

Careful, Hanoi Jane. The woke dragon you have been riding your whole pampered life might turn around and eat you. Someone with more moral authority than you, being racially correct, doesn’t say white men are the problem; she says it is white women like you:

Sarah Comrie, the pregnant nurse who was harassed by black thugs over a bicycle, demonized as a “Karen” by the media, doxed on social media, and placed on leave by her employer is innocent, all right. There is also no question that blacks are disproportionately responsible for violent crime:

[B]lack Americans (13% of the population) account for 51% of all robbery, 34% of all aggravated assault, 36% of all serious non-fatal violent crimes, and 22% of all rape, per the DOJ.

But factual reality is irrelevant in the realm of leftist politics. Whoever pushes moonbattery to the most demented and malevolent extreme gets to be at the vanguard. Not even Hanoi Jane can stay in front forever.

State Farm Gives Up on California

Depravity is not merely a characteristic of moonbattery but its fundamental principle. This produces bizarre paradoxes. For example, Big Business is belligerently woke, as companies like Anheuser-Busch and Target poke us in the eye to remind us. Yet to the extent wokeness prevails, it is not possible to do business.

Moonbattery-addled California is a case in point. Retailers like Walgreens and Nordstrom have been withdrawing because they cannot maintain stores where looting is effectively legal in accordance with liberal ideology. Nor can insurers do business:

State Farm, the nation’s largest property insurer by volume, is pulling out of California. They will not be selling property insurance in the state anymore for a lot of obvious reasons including rising costs that are outpacing inflation, rampant crime, surging homelessness, the illegal alien invasion, and overall horrible policies from the Democrat-run government.

As we have come to expect, the liberal establishment media blames climate change:

One of the largest insurance agencies in the country will no longer accept applications for home and business insurance in California due to wildfire risks and the cost of rebuilding. …

A decadeslong megadrought and climate change have been exacerbating wildfire risk in California in recent years. Severe drought during the winter is leading to matchbox conditions in the dry season, allowing intense wildfires to ignite with the slightest spark.

California has always been prone to droughts and wildfires. It has not always been rendered dysfunctional by liberal rule, a conspicuous feature of which is the property damage that characterizes anarchotyranny. But the more plausible explanation for State Farm’s inability to operate there does not support its narrative, so the media leaves us to figure things out for ourselves.

Somali Culture Night Mayhem

If you’ve seen Black Hawk Down, you can imagine how Somali Culture Night is celebrated in the large Somali colony our rulers have established in Minneapolis. Alpha News confirms it:

Mayhem erupted at a south Minneapolis high school Thursday evening during a planned Somali cultural event and performance that resulted in fights, a stabbing, and shots fired.

Washburn High School hosted the multicultural festivities.

The school was hosting a Somali Culture Night performance in the auditorium…

Looks like a celebrant got knifed in the back:

Regarding the shots fired:

Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O’Hara … said that a 16-year-old male was eventually arrested in connection to the shots fired, and a Glock handgun with a 50-round drum magazine was recovered by police.

How convenient for adventurous tourists who would like to experience the exciting ambiance of Somalia but lack the funds to travel to Africa. Thanks to congressional representative Ilhan Omar, Minneapolis even offers the rest of the country a taste of what it is like to live under Somali rule.

Tomorrow’s Newcast Today

Consider the willingness of the liberal establishment media not merely to suppress information but to fabricate lies out of whole cloth so as to secure power for the Democratic Party. Factor in the alarming deep fake possibilities offered by artificial intelligence. By November 2024, newscasts intended to suppress the DeSantis vote might look like a technologically improved version of this:

The only thing preventing ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/PBS/MSNBC/BBC/ETC from creating a video of DeSantis confessing to molesting children is that it might get him crossover votes from Democrats.

Democrat Rule Versus Electricity and Food

You can’t put malevolent fanatics in charge of the government and indefinitely expect the lights to stay on:

[The North American Electric Reliability Corporation]’s summer reliability assessment forecasts that no less than two-thirds of the U.S., including most everyone living west of the Mississippi River, could experience power outages. …

One new variable this summer is the Environmental Protection Agency’s recently finalized Good Neighbor Plan, which requires fossil-fuel power plants in 22 states to reduce NOx emissions.

Nor can you expect there to continue to be food on the shelves:

Biden’s “climate czar” John Kerry is calling for farmers to stop growing food in order to meet the administration’s radical “net zero” goals for lowering “emissions.”

Kerry, Biden’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, issued the warning during a green agenda conference in Washington D.C.

During the Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) AIM for Climate Summit, Kerry told the audience that “we can’t get to net zero, we won’t get this job done, unless agriculture is front and center as part of the solution.”

Kerry warned attendees that his and other world leaders’ “lives depend” on farmers ceasing their operations.

Stopping farmers from growing food will lower agriculture “emissions,” Kerry insists.

The emissions that we are supposed to believe are bad for the weather actually help crops to grow. But we won’t be needing crops, now that liberals have decided that food, like electricity, offends the climate.

When the Khmer Rouge fundamentally transformed Cambodia, as much as 30% of population died. The USA will not get off as lightly unless Democrats are pried loose from power before they can fully implement their agenda. We will know the rubber has hit the road when they get serious about disarming us.

Moonbats Have Heroes Too: Leigh Finke

Today, Americans honor their heroes. Moonbats have very different heroes — like Minnesota state representative Leigh Finke:

Finke, who is transgender, was the chief author of HF146, Minnesota’s “trans refuge” legislation, which would prevent the enforcement of out-of-state laws that would remove a child from their parents for receiving transgender medical interventions, such as hormones or puberty blockers. Finke received the “Children’s Health Hero” award from the Minnesota hospital system for [his] work on the bill, according to a release from Children’s Minnesota.

“The law protects access to gender affirming care for Minnesotans and for those traveling to Minnesota from other states,” Children’s Minnesota said in a statement.

That is, it facilitates child sex change tourism.

There used to be a term “Minnesota nice.” Liberals have replaced it with “Minnesota evil.”

There’s more:

Finke was also the author of a bill that would strip anti-pedophile language from the state’s existing anti-discrimination law. The law currently excludes sexual attraction to children from its list of legally protected sexual orientations, but Finke’s bill would remove language specifying that exclusion, which activists have argued could lead to pedophilia being interpreted as a protected sexual orientation.

That is, pedophiles would be officially recognized as belonging to a higher caste, like homosexuals. A Republican amendment put the kibosh on this for now.

As noted previously,

Finke also supports the transsexual violence that has become epidemic (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, etc.) — specifically to promote the transsexualization of children.

Finke’s advice to the kids he wants to corrupt and defile:

“Don’t listen to your parents!”

The liberal establishment so reveres this guy that he was recently awarded the title of Woman of the Year by USA Today.

Meanwhile, that same liberal establishment characterizes our heroes as extremists, threats to Our Democracy, racists, et cetera:

Concerns that extremist groups may single out veterans for recruitment into their organizations, and the seemingly disproportional representation of veterans among the Jan. 6 Capitol protesters, prompted calls to investigate and address a perceived problem of extremism in the military. …

In January 2021, after the Capitol riots, 15 Democratic lawmakers pressed the DOD Inspector General to root out extremism in the ranks in a letter.

“White supremacists are joining the military and permeating the ranks,” the letter stated. “The spread of white supremacist ideology is dangerous for the military and threatens to rupture civil-military safeguards that our democracy requires.”

A recent study by the RAND Corporation found that veterans are less likely to join extremist groups than the general public. However, from the Democrat viewpoint, “extremist” means “insufficiently woke.”

Compare the willingness to lay down you life for your country to the willingness to sexually deform a child. To the extent people are to be judged by their heroes, countermoonbats can hold their heads high.

The Horror

You thought nothing could be as chunk-hurlingly disgusting as the recent bid by Adidas to top Nike using Dylan Mulvaney to model sports bras? Wrong. No matter how long you stare into the abyss that is moonbattery, you will always discover new horrors, each at least as sickening as the last.

A previously neglected Calvin Klein ad from last year’s Pride Month promotion has come to light, featuring transgender model Bappie Kortram.

Kortram is a “trans man.” She has not had her chest surgically disfigured. However, she has deformed herself pharmaceutically to the point of growing chest hair and a beard. If the objective was to render herself repulsive, she succeeded.

Unsurprisingly, Bappie Kortram has also modeled for Adidas. She constitutes a woke trifecta: transsexual, black, and morbidly obese.

As with Bud Light, this crime against decency is part of a larger campaign:

Last year, Calvin Klein also rolled out a Mother’s Day ad campaign featuring a pregnant “man.”

This isn’t about selling clothes; it is social engineering. The motive is the demonic blend of depravity and malice that drives all things progressive.

Are we below the fold yet? Presenting Bappie Kortram, who represents what our ruling class wants us to want to look like:

Media Narrative on Target Is Diametric Opposite of Reality

Target has long been known for obnoxiously rubbing leftism in customers’ faces, so it is no surprise that it is next up after Anheuser-Busch to feel the backlash from a public that has been fed to the teeth with the depraved and disgusting transsexual agenda. Characteristically, the media is attempting to portray decent people who object to children being transsexualized as the villains. AP has resorted to barefaced lies:

The Associated Press has removed uncredited claims, without telling readers, that Target yanked or relocated LGBTQ merchandise featured prominently in Pride Month displays in response to “threats to workers” and “violent confrontations” between customers and employees.

Just the News noticed the wire service made the claims in its own voice in the headline and first paragraph of the report posted Tuesday night, rather than attributing those claims to Target, despite providing no evidence of threats or violence. The story was widely carried in other media.

Those claims had disappeared a day later without a correction or editor’s note.

Meanwhile, in real life:

A Utah Target has been evacuated and a bomb squad has been called in after multiple threats were made against stores across the state and five in Ohio after the company’s annual Pride collection sparked fury. …

Five Targets in across Northeast Ohio and Pennsylvania were also threatened, according to Cleveland 19, who received a threatening email listing stores in Stow, North Canton, Boardman, Niles, Ohio and Monaca, Pennsylvania.

The right-wing terrorists the DHS and FBI are devoted to uncovering have turned up at last! Oh wait:

‘Target is full of [redacted] cowards who turned their back on the LGBT community and decided to cater to homophobic right wing, redneck, bigots, who protested and vandalized their store,’ the email to Cleveland 19 read. ‘We won’t stand idly by as the far right continues to hunt us down.’

The reference to a vandalized store likely refers to the disinformation fabricated by Associated Press.

Anheuser-Busch blundered into the same situation Target now finds itself in, taking fire not only from the conservatives it deliberately disgusts but also from LGBT militants who never find anyone’s submission sufficiently obsequious.

‘We are sending you a message, we placed a bomb in the following Targets,’ the email continued. ‘We will continue to bomb your Targets until you stop cowering and bring back your LBGT merchandise.’

If AP’s inversion of events gave you déjà vu, you could be thinking of the recent attempt by the DHS (with a media assist) to spin the transsexual suicide terror attack on a Christian school in Nashville as violence not by transsexuals but against them.

The government, the media, and the rest of our liberal ruling class might actually serve as a reliable source of information. We just need to apply a magic decoder ring by assuming that whatever we are told is the precise opposite of the truth.
