When a White Slapping a Black Is No Big Deal

Being a Person of Color affords many protections and privileges, but these do not apply in all situations. For example, a black student (Floyd Johnson II) was threatened (“You’re gonna end up f***in’ dead!”) and repeatedly slapped by a white student (Keaton Hill) at Cal State, Sacramento last Friday. The alarming incident has circulated on video:

Why has this not pushed even the impeachment farce off the front page of every newspaper in the country? Because the black student is a past president of the Sacramento State College Republicans, and the student who did the slapping is this guy (LANGUAGE ALERT):

Bear in mind that you are forbidden from finding Keaton Hill unappealing. That would constitute homophobia, a first-degree thought crime.

Elizabeth Warren’s “Blue New Deal”

Elizabeth Warren endorses AOC’s literally insane Green New Deal — with one caveat. AOC’s plan, which would cost an estimated $94.4 trillion (over $600,000 per household) and reduce those Americans who don’t starve to death to a medieval standard of living, does not go far enough to suit Fauxcahontas. So she proposes adding her own “Blue New Deal” atop it.

Via The Hill:

The plan, including its name, would be based on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey’s (D-Mass.) Green New Deal proposed earlier this year. …

Warren’s plan would … include efforts to fast-track permits or offshore renewable energy, investments in ocean farming, a push to electrify ports to reduce air pollution, an expansion to marine protected locations and an end to all new fossil fuel leases offshore and on public lands.

That would cause the cost of energy and therefore everything else to skyrocket, put many people out of work as businesses fold, and leave us at the mercy of hostile Muslim regimes to meet our energy needs. No one wishing this country well would propose it.

The wealthy Warren applies her eat-the-rich Marxist rhetoric even here:

“The climate crisis is too urgent to let the ultra-wealthy complain about wind turbines getting in the way of their ocean views,” her plan said.

It hasn’t occurred to her that others besides her fellow rich people might like for landscapes and seascapes not to be rendered hideous with giant bird-chopping monuments to moonbattery.

Dem Congressman: Impeachment Is About Slavery

Slavery was prevalent throughout the world from before recorded history until Caucasians all but abolished it over the past few centuries. Yet thanks to historical ignorance, Culture Marxists not only fail to give whites credit for ending it (despite the 620,000 lost in the Civil War), they have even managed to create a general belief that whites are to blame for it. Consequently, slavery serves as an all-purpose cudgel to club people into compliance with the progressive agenda.

Someone who enjoys wielding this cudgel is Cro-Magnon congresscritter Al Green, best known as one of the fanatical advocates of impeachment who have been driving the Democrat Party off a cliff. Green has been introducing impeachment resolutions since a few months after Trump was elected, admits that the purpose is to prevent his reelection, and plans to impeachment him again after the current effort fails to remove him from office. Now he says that Trump must be impeached because slavery.

Asked about impeachment articles, Green quacked this on MSNBC:

“I believe that the American people understand that this is something that we must do at this point. I don’t speak for all of the American people. About a majority seem to think so. And I think that we’re moving forward in a very cautious and prudent way, which is what is expected. But I also think that if we don’t include some of the things that are important to people of color, then I think that our business won’t be finished. I do believe, ma’am, that we have to deal with the original sin. We have to deal with slavery. Slavery was the thing that put all of what President Trump has done lately into motion.”

You thought slavery ended in this country going on 2 centuries ago? Wrong, says a representative of the party that fought to preserve it. Slavery won’t be gone until elections are reduced to farces and Democrats win all of them. Even then it won’t be gone, so long as goons like Green can pick up the word and bash people on the head with it.

Green also managed to drag in the LGBTQ community, antisemitism, racism, Islamophobia, transphobia, and misogyny, to use his very words, providing a textbook example of what George Orwell called “duckspeak.”

Nike’s Victory Swim Collection to Feature Burkinis

Ever so woke Nike offers a preview of what we can expect to see in a future Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

From CNN via MSN:

Nike’s Victory Swim Collection will include a full-coverage swimsuit and a swim hijab. …

The full coverage suit is available along with a separate hijab, tunic top and swim leggings.

Given the current political climate, this is unlikely to have been driven by a sudden expansion in the demand for burkinis. The probable purpose is the same as with choosing rabidly anti-American black supremacist Colin Kaepernick to be the face of the company: to sell its product by ostentatiously aligning itself with an ideology that wants you dead and your country burned down or blown up.

Woke Astronomy

The proponents of a totalitarian ideology will demand that everything else be subordinated to it, including science. With Soviet communism, this resulted in Lysenkoism. With political correctness, it results in lunacy like the duckspeak quacked by Lisa Kewley, Director, Australian Research Council Centre for Excellence in All-Sky Astrophysics in 3D, Australian National University.

Lisa is pleased with recent technological advances, but she wokely proclaims there is more to astronomy than better telescopes:

To extract the maximum benefit from the extraordinary power of these telescopes, we need to look beyond traditionally conservative hiring practices. …

We need to draw from the academic talent and insight to be found among LGBTIQA+ astronomers, Indigenous astronomers, disabled astronomers, chronically ill astronomers, and astronomers who hail from non-Western cultures.

Science is still coasting on a culture that evolved among European Christians in the Middle Ages. If we started over from scratch now, astronomy would consist of squinting at the stars with the naked eye, proclaiming theories based on feelings, and choosing the most oppressed person’s opinion as fact.

Sports Illustrated’s Sportsperson of the Year Is Tediously Predictable

This year’s choice for Sportsperson of the Year was a no-brainer for ultra-woke Sports Illustrated, which aggressively places left-wing proselytizing ahead of sports. Since Colin Kaepernick is no longer a professional athlete, there is no more obnoxious moonbat in the world of sports than belligerently lesbian soccer player Megan Rapinoe — and so:

U.S. Women’s National Team star Megan Rapinoe has been named Sports Illustrated’s 2019 Sportsperson of the Year, becoming only the fourth woman in the award’s 66-year history to win it unaccompanied.

Berating itself for not being sufficiently PC in the past about granting the award on the basis of gender/race/sexual orientation is SI’s way of humblebragging.

Rapinoe received the honor this year after winning the World Cup with the USWNT and being a vocal activist for equality.

By “equality,” they mean the radical LGBT agenda. This is why she won the award; the USWNT win is pretext.

After saying she wouldn’t visit the White House and being called out on Twitter by President Donald Trump, Rapinoe responded with an iconic goal celebration in the quarterfinal match against France when she struck a[n insufferably smug] pose with her arms outstretched. The image quickly went viral on social media and the world turned it into a symbol for her patriotism and activism.

A more accurate “symbol for her patriotism” is her refusal to stand for the national anthem.

Rapinoe might seem a strange choice for such an award, considering that she is well known for her showboating and poor sportsmanship. But she is also known for militant moonbattery, anti-Americanism, and a potty mouth, so you can see why the sort of people who produce SI would revere her.

Rapinoe is such an extreme moonbat that failed presidential candidate Jay Inslee — who ran as a single issue candidate on a platform of imposing authoritarianism in the name of the global warming hoax — announced he would select her as Secretary of State.

No wonder Sports Illustrated is among the moonbat media outlets that have been shedding jobs.

Too bad there isn’t a countermoonbat sports magazine. It could select as Sportspersons of the Year the team of boys under the age of 15 who beat Rapinoe’s team 5-2, hopefully imparting some desperately needed humility.

Dead of Red Flag Law

The video below may be a year old, but it is still ahead of its time. It offers a preview of America’s future if Democrats prevail. Authorities enforcing a red flag law in Anne Arundel County, Maryland killed 60-year-old Gary Willis for not being willing to waive his right to bear arms.

Baltimore’s WJZ presents:

Willis was described by neighbors as “a nice man who they saw walking his dog around the neighborhood.”

Key points from the video:

1. The raid evidently occurred before dawn, just like they did it in the Soviet Union.

2. According to a neighbor, “crime just doesn’t happen” in this neighborhood. It does now that oppressive Big Government has transformed honest citizens into criminals by denying them fundamental rights.

3. No one seems to know who dropped the dime on Willis, condemning him without due process as being unfit to exercise his constitutional rights.

Michael Bloomberg is hardly the only Democrat to favor red flag laws as a means to deny Americans their right to bear arms.

Hallmark Channel Succumbs to LGBT Bullies

Chick-fil-A isn’t the only one to sell out. The Hallmark Channel is considered a refuge from the nearly ubiquitous degeneracy that characterizes our times. The Christmas movies they run are probably corny, but wholesome corniness has a place. Not in utopia though. Already, even the Hallmark Channel has been brought to heel, compelled to advocate sexual depravity.

Via Big League Politics:

Executives with the Crown Media Family Networks, which is the parent company of the Hallmark Channel, have confirmed that they are looking to inject pro-LGBT propaganda into their content as soon as possible.

“We are continuing to expand our diversity,” Michelle Vicary, Crown Media’s executive vice president of programming, said to The Wrap. “We are looking at pitches for LGBTQ movies.”

Vicary says “there is a lot of work to be done to catch up.” True enough, Sodom and Gomorrah got a big head start on the Hallmark Channel.

Hallmark folded shortly after the LGBT movement started a campaign to pressure them into pushing their agenda on their airwaves. LGBT activists began complaining that there weren’t any Christmas movies that featured sodomy in the plot.

The slightest push from these bullies and virtually everyone is willing to abandon decency, principles, and their own customers/audience in order to curry favor.

I used to believe that Americans have too much character to succumb to a bully regime like Hitler’s or Stalin’s. Nowadays, that belief is hard to hold onto.

Turning Loved Ones into Soil

There should be dignity in death. But there is no dignity in moonbattery. In utopia, human bodies will be treated like table scraps so as to express reverence for the climate.

Via the Independent:

The world’s first funeral home dedicated to composting human beings is set to open in 2021 – allowing those left behind to turn their dearly departed into soil.

US ‘deathcare’ company Recompose will be able to turn the deceased into a cubic yard of soil over a period of as little as 30 days, using one-eighth of the energy of cremation and saving as much as a metric ton of carbon dioxide from being produced compared to other forms of burial.

In the liberal religion, the essential plant nutrient carbon dioxide is regarded as offensive to the climate.

The firm’s first site in Seattle, Washington, will be able to hold 75 people at a time.

The industrial scale is already impressive. But they need to take the next logical step and recycle the dead into food. That way, we can revere the climate by abolishing cows, in accordance with the Green New Deal.

Portland May Require New Buildings to Accommodate Homeless

The moonbats running Portland are approaching levels of leftist tyranny not seen since the Russian Revolution:

Under a proposal introduced to the PSC [Planning and Sustainability Commission] on Nov. 12, the building design process would require owners to “provide opportunities” to the homeless population “to rest and be welcome.” Many are interpreting the vague language—specifically the “rest and be welcome” requirements—as potentially forcing owners of new commercial and residential real estate to build “spaces” for homeless men and women to camp out on private property, even in apartment buildings. …

Oriana Magnera, who presented the idea, told her fellow commissioners the city needs “spaces where [homeless] folks can feel supported and safe.”

The next step is for the actual owners of the property to be evicted to make more room for the homeless. Refer to Ayn Rand’s We the Living to see how this worked in Russia.

Once property rights go out the window, all other rights will follow.

Murdered, Brains Eaten for Speaking English

Democrats insist that we allow all Third Worlders who can make it from any corner of the planet to the US border and say the word “sanctuary” to pour across without vetting so as to avail themselves of our extravagantly generous welfare state. A story from the Philippines suggests the sort of assimilation difficulties that can be expected.

Lloyd Bagtong, aged 21, allegedly got mad because a woman spoke English to him. So he killed her and ate her brains.

Witnesses said they saw Bagtong, who is unemployed, walking with the woman close to the spot where her body was found.

[Police] suspect he killed and decapitated her at the scene using a large machete that was found tucked into his waistband, then used a piece of cloth to carry the head back to his home.

Bagtong allegedly told police that he cooked some rice before putting the woman’s brains on top and eating them.

The woman was found not only headless but topless. At last word, she had not been identified.

AOC Lies About Starving Without Food Stamps

Socialist congresscritter Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who grew up in the upscale NYC suburb of Yorktown Heights, and who attended outlandishly expensive Boston University, says her family might have starved if the Trump Administration had been around to revamp food stamp work requirements for able-bodied 18- to 49-year-olds who do not have dependents.

“Many people” will starve? What an absurd lie. Among the top health problems afflicting the poor in this country is obesity. Private charities collect more food than people will eat:

[Los Angeles County] has the nation’s largest population of people who are “food insecure,” or don’t know where their next meal is coming from. At the same time, the food banks that serve the region have to throw away food or turn down donations because of lack of adequate storage space or the means to get food to people who need it, and the difficulty in matching the flow of food donations to the demand.

It is not enough to provide free food. Apparently, you must go door to door and regurgitate it predigested into the needy’s mouths, like birds feeding their young. Otherwise, the food will pile up so that donations must be turned away.

What hunger occurs in this country results from mental illness, not poverty per se. If you want to see actual starvation, implement OAC’s Green New Deal.

Commie Christmas Carols

Even where moonbats have achieved total dominance, some remnant of American culture remains. For example, in Ann Arbor, home of University of Michigan, people still sing Christmas carols, despite Christmas being an insensitive thought crime that must never be mentioned. Of course, the lyrics are a little different:

“Feeling the Bern,” a group of Ann Arborites went caroling downtown Friday night, Dec. 6, singing praises of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

They used the tunes of Christmas classics; however,

Lyrics were rewritten by Lauren Sargent to voice support for Sanders’ progressive agenda.

“O Christmas Tree” became “O Medicare,” with a call to “make it universal,” and “We Three Kings” became “Green New Deal,” a song about reducing carbon emissions to “rescue our earth.”

The objective is to replace one god with another. Moonbats literally worship coercive Big Government.
