Word “Chief” Stricken From Newspeak Dictionary

Someone needs to get word to the servile liberals running the NFL. Like the Washington Redskins, the Kansas City Chiefs require a name change, as the word “chief” has been stricken from the English language by wokescolds:

The San Francisco Unified School District announced it will remove the word from its jobs titles. …

The school district said the decision was prompted after concerns were raised by Native American community members, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Indians must get a kick out of crybullying palefaces by pretending that anodyne words offend them. By agreeing to delete words from our own language on an arbitrary basis, we kneel in obeisance before them. Dominance and submission are the point of designating language as “offensive.”

Although libs apparently think otherwise, “chief” is not from any Indian language. It has been an English word meaning “head of a group” dating back to before the discovery of the New World. Like a lot of English vocabulary, it comes from a French word that in turn comes from a Latin word.

Sniggers the Wall Street Journal,

“Farewell great Chiefe,” says a character in Shakespeare’s “Antony and Cleopatra.” That’s dated to the early 1600s. Somehow we doubt he was thinking about the Sioux. A biblical translation from William Tyndale in 1526 speaks of “the power of Belzebub, the chefe of the devyls.” The earliest examples are hard to parse unless you’re fluent in Beowulfese, but here’s one we grasp from 1483, a decade before Columbus sailed to the west: “She was made abbesse and chyef of al the monasterye.”

Don’t San Francisco schools have English teachers who can explain this?

Probably not. English teachers specialize in moonbattery now, and have little time for anything else.

Stand by for more petty tyranny directed at the English language. The US Department of the Interior, which is run by a radical leftist you had better not call a squaw, spends some of the money confiscated from us through taxation and inflation on a Derogatory Geographic Names Task Force.

Uvalde as a Symptom of Liberalism

This isn’t about the availability of guns or the uselessness of local authorities. Uvalde is a symptom of a more serious problem: the engineered collapse of civilization.

For decades, progressives have pumped raw sewage into the cultural water supply. First among their crimes, they have used feminism, the welfare state, the LGBT agenda, and the glorification of moral degeneracy to destroy the nuclear family.

As John Daniel Davidson suggests, Salvador Ramos was a product of his culture:

A broken home, no father or father figure in his life, no church or community of any kind, no real friends except those he met through social media. Here we have, in brief sketch, not just a profile of a school shooter, but an indictment of our entire culture. It was the same in Parkland, and Sandy Hook, and many other places.

Start with lack of family, lack of faith, lack of anything meaningful to believe in because leftists have torn down everything with more depth than political correctness. Add in the increased alienation inflicted in the name of Covid. As Anna Zeigler puts it,

The total disregard for the welfare of children, children who were isolated, ignored, and needlessly masked for two years, is not unrelated to the matter of school shootings.

On top of that, the liberal ruling class has devalued human life to the level of medical waste:

Amid the Texas news updates and hot takes, a stomach-churning TikTok made the rounds on Twitter. In it, a young, pro-abortion mother cradles her infant and says in a sing-song voice to the child, “Hi, I could have killed you, but I chose to let you live,” then likening the killing of babies in utero to killing germs with hand sanitizer.

“Yes, I realize what I just said, and I stand by it,” she concludes.

If Uvalde, Texas, is a tree, this culture of death is the forest.

Applied liberalism. That’s the answer to this mystery:

Schumer Kills School Safety Bill and Advances Gun Grab

The reason we have not taken effective measures to prevent school shootings is that Democrats want these horrific incidents to occur, because they can be exploited to attack gun rights. You think that sounds cynical? Then consider that in the aftermath of the Uvalde massacre, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer killed a school safety bill while advancing a gun grab:

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., asked for the Luke and Alex School Safety Act to be passed by unanimous consent.

But Schumer blocked it, because it involved establishing best safety practices, rather than rendering law-abiding citizens defenseless by disarming them.

“The truth: There were officers at the school in Texas,” Schumer tweeted. “The shooter got past them. We need real solutions—We will vote on gun legislation starting with the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.”

That there were police at Robb Elementary School who apparently refused to take prompt action to defend the students, as also happened at Parkland, confirms that we cannot leave our safety in the hands of the authorities. We must be able to defend ourselves — against both maniacs like Salvador Ramos and tyrants like Chuck Schumer.

The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act is designed to keep us safe from — you guessed it — white supremacists. This term can be applied to anyone Democrats don’t like, including “the Black face of white supremacy,”* as the Los Angeles Times calls Larry Elder.

Profiles in Malevolent Cretinism: Whoopi Goldberg

We have come to a pretty pass when we have to acknowledge the nonsense spewed by a malevolent cretin like Whoopi Goldberg. Unfortunately, we are ruled by moonbats, among whom she is a luminary. She installs opinions into the muddled minds of Democrats through her platform on ABC. So let’s hear what she has to say after Uvalde.

Like Joe Biden, Robert Francis O’Rourke, and Michael Moore, Whoopi eagerly seized on the tragedy as a pretext to attack our constitutionally protected right of self-defense.

Not everything is about ensuring that Democrats do not encounter armed resistance while attempting to inflict their agenda. Some things are also about the liberal sacrament of abortion:

Goldberg criticized Gov. Greg Abbott, R-Texas for expanding gun rights, which she claimed helped lead to the shooting, and stated that the “vigilante law” aspect of the pro-life Texas heartbeat law – which allows citizens to sue physicians and people who assist in illegal abortions – should be applied to guns as well.

That way people can “call the cops” on those who have “too big an arsenal,” she claimed.

A prominent feature of left-wing utopia is citizens turning on each other to empower the police state. East German authorities relied on 189,000 informants to impose totalitarianism on a country of 16 million. In Rostock, 18% of the population provided information to the Stasi.

Speaking for the ruling class, Whoopi provided insight into why Democrats are keen to pack the Supreme Court (see here, here, here, etc) with authoritarian apparatchiks like Merrick Garland:

“[W]e’re going to take this to the courts, and we’re going to make you give these guns up because you don’t need to have them.”

As for the Constitution, Whoopi snarls,

“Alito says abortion’s not in the Constitution, well, neither are AR-15s.”

Sure they are. The relevant section reads, “[T]he right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” AR-15s are arms. There wasn’t space in the document to list every firearm that would ever be invented.

If it had occurred to the Framers that it was necessary to put abortion in the Constitution, they would have explicitly banned it. What right could be more fundamental than the right to life?

Whoopi’s idiocy is rivaled only by her malice. Her response to Republicans who express grief over the tragic deaths in Uvalde is to threaten to punch them:

“I swear to God, if I see another Republican senator talk about their heart being broken I’ma go punch somebody!”

People who watch this obscenity spew moonbattery vote.

Biden and Michael Moore Warp History to Attack Constitution

Whenever Democrats have a pretext to attack the Second Amendment, their hostility to our fundamental right of self-defense comes to the fore. They have made it clear that they will forcibly disarm the American population the moment they have the leverage.

Yesterday, the figurehead for the liberal establishment croaked that the Second Amendment is “not absolute”:

Biden called for stricter gun control legislation during his Wednesday address, claiming the Second Amendment allows for limitations on firearm ownership.

He must have skipped over the part that reads, “shall not be infringed.”

Barked Biden:

“The idea that an 18-year-old can walk into a store and buy weapons of war designed and marketed to kill is I think just wrong.”

“Weapons of war” is a meaningless shibboleth Democrats apply to guns they want banned. Knives are weapons of war, often used in mass killings; shall we ban those too?

Our wise leader graced us with a history lesson:

“The Second Amendment is not absolute. When it was passed you couldn’t own a cannon, you couldn’t own certain kinds of weapons.”

His repeated claim that Americans were not allowed to have cannons when the Constitution was ratified is not true. There was no federal law restricting what kind of guns Americans could own. Once the Constitution was in effect, such a law would have been struck down as unconstitutional.

For more revisionist history, we turn to Michael Moore, who surprisingly has not yet eaten himself to death. Moore responded to Uvalde by denouncing America (“birthed in violence with genocide of the native people at the barrel of a gun”). He then went straight to the top of the liberal wish list by calling for a moratorium on gun sales and the repeal of the Second Amendment.

In support of his demands, Moore announced that bullets did not exist when the Constitution was written:

“I truly believe if Jefferson, Madison and Washington, if they all knew that the bullet would be invented — some 50 years after our revolution, I don’t know if they would have written it that way.”

MSNBC viewers no doubt nodded sagely as he continued to rave:

“They didn’t even know what a bullet was. It didn’t exist until the 1830s. If they had any idea that there would be this kind of carnage, you have to believe that the Founders of the country wouldn’t support it.”

If the Founding Fathers had known that guns would one day fire bullets, thereby becoming dangerous, they never would have allowed them. This is inconsistent with Moore’s view that the Founders were racist fiends who forced blacks to build the country for them at gunpoint:

“This country was built on the backs of slaves with a gun to their backs to build this country into the country that we got to have.”

Moore has no use for the “common sense gun control” Biden euphemistically yelps about. He is tired of eroding liberty by increments:

“We don’t need the sensible stuff. We need the hard-core stuff that is going to protect ourselves and our children.”

Protecting children won’t be easy if we let leftist maniacs disarm us.

While Moore indulges in fantasies and Biden gibbers about deer that wear Kevlar vests, a Florida state representative gets to the heart of the issue:

Most Appalling Reaction Yet to Uvalde

Moonbats have reacted to the tragedy in Uvalde in characteristically appalling fashion, but none of them more disgustingly than the Moonbat Messiah himself. Barack Obama does not like it that grieving the senseless death of innocent children distracts the insufficiently devout from worshiping a violent career criminal who died of a fentanyl overdose while resisting arrest:

That has got to be rock bottom. What could anyone say that would be more contemptible?

But then, Obama does have a legacy to defend. The racial strife he systematically stoked for political purposes while in office came to a head afterward in the Black Lives Matter riots. Hard as it is to believe nowadays, race relations were good and getting better prior to this Alinskyite community organizer’s arrival in the White House.

What If They Could Confiscate All of the Guns?

What would happen if Democrats were able to impose tyranny at the level required to eradicate the 434 million firearms in civilian possession? For the answer, we turn to the authoritarian left’s favorite role model, communist China.

CNN ran this story a year ago:

Over the weekend, six people were killed and 14 injured after a knife-wielding man stabbed passersby on a pedestrian shopping street in the eastern Chinese city of Anqing.

In contravention of liberal ideology, banning guns does not ban the evil and insanity that cause people to indiscriminately murder:

With guns strictly controlled and out of reach for ordinary people, knives have become the most common weapon used in such atrocities.

Maniacs behind the Bamboo Curtain even attack schools with knives:

In April, two children were killed when a knife-wielding man entered a kindergarten in southern China. An additional 14 children and two teachers were wounded, according to state news agency Xinhua.

There are limits to the body count you can run up with a knife. The weapon used in the worst mass murder at a school in US history was not a knife — or a gun either. The killer used dynamite.

One of the most conspicuously evil mass murders in recent memory involved an attack on a Christmas parade. The weapon of choice was an SUV.

Not that you can’t kill a lot of people with a knife:

In December, another mass stabbing in a small city in northeastern Liaoning province left seven people dead and another seven injured. State media reported the 62-year-old suspect was socially withdrawn after losing his son and getting divorced, and carried out the attack to express his “dissatisfaction towards society.”

No wonder Biden et al. want to pretend the firearms that have been integral to American culture from the beginning cause mass killings. If the actual cause is “dissatisfaction towards society,” one solution would be for him and his party to go away. Under the current administration, 79% of the US population understands that America is on the wrong track.

As in the USA, the immediate cause of mass murder in China (not counting the genocidal government) is psychos on the loose:

In China, public access to mental health services remains limited, partially due to a shortage of qualified mental care professionals.

Don’t look for stories like this from CNN in the near future. The liberal establishment is in exploitation mode following the shootings in Uvalde. Democrats don’t want to hear about mental illness when they have a chance to deny law-abiding citizens their fundamental right of self-defense.

Beto O’Rourke Hijacks Abbott Response to Uvalde

Democrat candidate for Governor of Texas Beto O’Rourke has confirmed that he is still at his party’s vanguard by hijacking Uvalde for the sake of self-promotion and authoritarian left-wing politics.

You thought Biden hit rock bottom with his divisive demagoguery? Robert Francis O’Rourke digs lower still:

During Gov. Greg Abbott’s press briefing today updating the public on the latest developments following yesterday’s deadly mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, O’Rourke took it upon himself to crash the proceedings in a simultaneously shameless and shameful attempt to score political points.

Watch in horror at what prominent Democrats have become:

The gent who accurately observed that O’Rourke is a “sick son of a bitch” is Uvalde Mayor Don McLaughlin.

During his rare emergences from his basement during the 2020 campaign, Biden promised to make Beto O’Rourke his gun confiscation czar, in charge of rendering the US population defenseless by disarming it. Maybe this shameful publicity stunt was meant as a reminder that O’Rourke is the right moonbat for the job, in case running for governor doesn’t work out.

Nancy Pelosi Attacks Catholic Church

This should put an end to high priestess of moonbattery Nancy Pelosi’s pretense of being Catholic:

Pelosi lashed out against the Catholic Church after she was banned from Holy Communion by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone over her “extreme” position on abortion, taking her case to MSNBC to lecture the world’s oldest religious institution.

As noted earlier, it is no overstatement to characterize Pelosi’s advocacy of abortion as extreme. To allow her to take communion while she obstinately persists in manifest grave sin would contribute to the campaign to destroy Christianity from within, subordinating it to leftism.

Pelosi took to the obsequiously supportive far-left platform Morning Joe to denounce Catholicism:

“So these same people are against contraception, family planning, in vitro fertilization,” she continued. “It’s… it’s a blanket thing and they use abortion as the front man for it while they try to undo so much, that’s what they tried to do in the Affordable Care Act, which didn’t have anything about terminating an abortion,” correcting herself, “a pregnancy.”

Pelosi added, “So let’s just say that, you know, I wonder about death penalty, which I am opposed to, so is the church, but they take no action against people who may not share their view.”

That is, she equated killing innocent children with executing murderers in accordance with the law. Nancy Pelosi is moral depravity incarnate. No wonder Democrats choose her to be Speaker of the House.

She then accused Archbishop Cordileone of being a homophobe, a cardinal sin in “woke” leftist dogma.

She denounced Cordileone for opposing the LGBT agenda, which all Christians do by definition, the Biblical position on sexual depravity being clear. While doing so, she sanctimoniously cited the gospel of Matthew. As William Shakespeare wrote, “The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.” So can his myrmidons like Pelosi.

Speaking of servants of Satan, the media takes her side. The San Francisco Examiner demands that Cordileone be removed from his position for not kneeling before Big Government by allowing Pelosi to take communion in violation of his faith.

Divisive Demagoguery From Atop Dead Children

When tragedy hits, the country needs a leader, to pull us together. The opposite of a leader has been installed in the White House. Disgustingly, Biden immediately exploited yesterday’s shootings in Uvalde as an opportunity to climb atop children’s corpses and stridently attack the Constitution:

Biden passionately called on Congress to pass gun control legislation and urged the country to “stand up to the gun lobby” Tuesday, just hours after a gunman killed 18 children and multiple adults at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

The body count is now up to 19 children, two adults.

Shrieked the Great Unifier:

“When in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby? When in God’s name are we going to do what we all know in our gut needs to be done?”

His teleprompter programmers laid on the rhetoric thick and heavy:

“Why are we willing to live with this carnage?”

The point of course is never to let a crisis go to waste:

“It’s time to turn this pain into action,” the president stated. … “It’s time to act and to tell those who obstruct or delay or blocked the common-sense gun laws, we need to let you know that we will not forget.”

The phrase “common sense gun laws” is a euphemism for attacks by left-wing authoritarians on the crucial Second Amendment.

Our constitutionally protected right of self-defense did not kill those kids and teachers. Evil did. The solution is not to disarm the law-abiding, or to pretend that firearms can be uninvented, which would be the only way to keep them out of the hands of criminals. It lies in confronting the evil that is corroding American society. More concretely, it lies in addressing the mental illness epidemic that was exacerbated by the Covid lockdowns and providing better security for schools.

Biden’s divisive demagoguery failed to impress Tucker Carlson or Will Cain:

Imagine the school security that could be purchased with the recent $40 billion handout to Ukraine.

In his shamelessness, Biden is a fit figurehead for the political wing of the liberal establishment. Other moonbats are lining up to exploit the dead children:

“The blood of every child that dies of gun violence in this country is on the hands of the Republican Party,” Hollywood director Rob Reiner said.

Archie Bunker was too kind when he called this guy “Meathead.”

Podcast co-host of One America pointed fingers at Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and his state’s constitutional carry laws passed last year which allow for citizens ages 21 and over to openly carry handguns without a license.

Salvador Ramos was only 18 — not that open carry laws have any relevance. Progressives may be surprised to learn that it is already illegal to shoot children in all 50 states.

Ade Osadolor-Hernandez, the advisory board director of the pro-gun control group Students Demand Action, joined MSNBC’s Ari Melber to respond to the shooting by pointing to “systemic inequities” in the “LatinX” community.

If a Hispanic shoots other Hispanics, it could only be because America is racist.

Hold on, it gets crazier. Women’s March board member Lucy Flores uses the dead kids to promote producing more dead kids through abortion:

“Texas is trying to force women to birth children just so they can be shot in school.”

It is safe to assume that Salvador Ramos was insane. There is a lot of that going around.

Creepy Neighbor State Farm Takes Half Step Back

The liberal establishment aggressively supports the perverse sexual indoctrination of children. That does not mean the entire country has become so depraved that it deserves to be flushed into hell. State Farm’s furtive program to groom kids 5 and up resulted in enough public outrage that it actually backed down slightly from its progressive stance. In a statement, it proclaimed that it no longer supports GenderCool in a campaign to distribute LGBT propaganda to elementary schools:

“This program that included books about gender identity was intended to promote inclusivity. Conversations about gender and identity should happen at home with parents. We don’t support required curriculum in schools on this topic. We support organizations providing resources for parents to have these conversations.”

Aiding and abetting abusive parents who corrupt their own children is relatively uncontroversial.

“We will continue to explore how we can support organizations that provide tools and resources that align with our commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

State Farm originally denied that the books were going to schools, but had to abandon that lie after it was quickly exposed.

The perv watching kids play through his blinds has been forced to step back — but grudgingly, and not very far back. State Farm has a long way to go to regain public trust.

Andrew Abdullah Should Have Been in Prison

Here is how NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig describes the shooting of Goldman Sachs employee Daniel Enriquez, allegedly by Andrew Abdullah Sunday morning aboard the Q train heading into Manhattan:

“The male suddenly and without any prior interactions or provocation walked up to our victim… and shot him one time in the chest.”

There was no discernable motive. Random violence has become one of the most prominent characteristics of New York, as civilization crumbles under the constant onslaught of moonbattery.

Who’s to blame? It can’t be Andrew Abdullah; that would suggest personal responsibility, which is out of fashion.

Liberals will blame the gun used. It would be more sensible to blame the liberals running a system that returns sociopaths to the street again and again until someone dies.

Abdullah, who has at least 19 arrests in more than a dozen incidents since 2015, fled the Canal Street station after the shooting and had been the subject of a police manhunt.

He had been freed after a stolen car bust in April, despite Brooklyn prosecutors asking that he be held on $15,000 bail.

In no sane country would Abdullah have been running around loose, gunning down random passengers on the NYC subway.
