An Honest Modern Artist

As documented in the book Cynical Theories, Democrats’ critical theory creed grew out of postmodernism. Postmodernism is doing to politics what it did long ago to art. Having pushed the postmodernist envelope as far as they could in every other direction, an artist has resorted to openly admitting that art has been reduced to a scam:

A Danish artist was given $84,000 by a museum to use in a work of art. When he delivered the piece he was supposed to make, it was not as promised. Instead, the artist, Jens Haaning, gave the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark two blank canvases and said they were titled “Take the Money and Run.”

They expected him to literally use the money in the piece, as he had done in previous work. But Haaning has better uses for it.

This may be the biggest event in art history since 1917, when Marcel Duchamp purchased a urinal, turned it upside down, signed it “R. Mutt,” and submitted it as an artwork entitled Fountain to New York’s Society of Independent Artists.

We will know that moonbattery has begun to recede when art once again requires skill rather than gall.

Marriage to Cartoon Character Hits Snag

Once you take the holy out of holy matrimony, anything is possible. This produces a parade of freakish new applications for the formerly sacred institution that liberals have gutted on behalf of the LGBT agenda. As our world becomes increasingly unreal, it should come as no surprise to see someone take a bride who not only is not a real woman, but who isn’t physically real at all:

Akihiko Kondo, 38, was dating Hatsune Miku — depicted in pop culture as a 16-year-old with turquoise hair — for a decade before they had an unofficial wedding ceremony in 2018. Kondo — one of many who identifies as “fictosexual,” or someone who is sexually attracted to fictional characters — spent 2 million yen, or about $17,300, on the nuptials, but his family did not attend.

Neither did coworkers. Narrow-minded bigots, all of them. Some fellow fictosexuals showed up though, “including strangers and online friends.”

Since falling in love with her in 2008, Kondo was finally able to interact with Miku for the first time in 2017 thanks to a Gatebox, a $1,300 machine that allowed device owners to interact with characters via holograms…

That’s what passes for a relationship in a society emptied of meaning by moonbattery.

Kondo first became familiar with Miku in 2008 after bullying at work caused him to become depressed. Despite finding it difficult to accept his feelings at first, he knew humans weren’t right for him after being met with rejection by others.

Rather than struggle to improve his situation, he took refuge in a fantasy world:

“I stayed in my room for 24 hours a day, and watched videos of Miku the whole time.”

Now support for Gatebox software has been eliminated, so he can no longer speak to Miku after 4 years of “marriage.”

“My love for Miku hasn’t changed,” he told [Japanese newspaper] Mainichi, which noted he now carried around a life-size version of Miku. “I held the wedding ceremony because I thought I could be with her forever.”

A true tragedy for the modern age.

Don’t forget to include F for “fictosexual” in LGBTQIAF+.

Now We Are Supposed to Fret About Tree Farts

Progressives want to limit our access to meat, because according to their ideology, cow flatulence is offensive to the climate. At least we can still eat fruits and vegetables. Well, maybe not fruits that grow on trees, because it turns out that trees fart too:

Gases released by dead trees — dubbed “tree farts” — account for roughly one-fifth of the greenhouse gases emitted by skeletal, marshy forests along the coast of North Carolina, researchers report online May 10 in Biogeochemistry. …

A team of ecologists went sniffing for tree farts in ghost forests, which form when saltwater from rising sea levels poisons a woodland, leaving behind a marsh full of standing dead trees. These phantom ecosystems are expected to expand with climate change…

Where there is life or has been life recently, there is carbon dioxide. CO2 was previously viewed as an essential nutrient for plants. But now that CO2 has been revealed as environmentally unclean, plants are part of the problem.

The only way to heal the planet is to abolish all life. This will also serve to eradicate racism and capitalism.

PBS Kiddie Show Arthur Injects Corrosive Race Propaganda

Racist “antiracist” ideology pervades the country. People widely believe that blacks suffer systemic oppression at the hands of malevolent whites.

There was no need to prove that Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd out of racial animus. Given the context of expectations, the infamous video spoke for itself.

Evidence does not support antiracist ideology. Bigotry against blacks is possibly the strongest taboo in modern American culture. Grievances need to be excavated from the distant past.

Yet antiracist ideology has been tearing the country apart, serving as a pretext for looting and mayhem on a massive scale and turning Americans ferociously against each other. Why do so many buy into it?

Because it is systematically installed before we are old enough to question it, then relentlessly reinforced through propaganda.

This gives an idea of how early they start with the brainwashing:

PBS children’s show Arthur is pumping out taxpayer-funded propaganda depicting the United States as a racist country where unjustified police brutality against black Americans is an aspect of everyday life.

Arthur the aardvark and his friend Buster the rabbit discuss the George Floyd video, though not by name.

Gasps Buster:

“I can’t believe someone would be hurt like that, just because they’re black.”

Why should he believe it? To suggest that the police treat random black people the way a rogue cop treats a 6’6″ 243-lb criminal resisting arrest would be preposterous. We don’t even know that race had anything to do with it — and yet:

“Buster, it happens everywhere!” Arthur responds.

It does not. In the real world, police are more likely to shoot whites than blacks.

Then the school lunch lady Mrs MacGrady comes in to shift the propaganda into overdrive. The likely effect is for black kids to come away paranoid and aggrieved, and for white kids to feel guilty or angry at their own kind. Neither are left better off for it.

Judge for yourself whether this is a productive way to spend taxpayer money:

Notre Dame to Be Rebuilt as Woke Theme Park

In 2019, Notre Dame suffered a devastating fire, which had the hallmarks of Islamic outreach. Looks like it will not be restored so much as repurposed. A conspiracy to radically alter the external appearance has been thwarted, but the inside of the famous cathedral may never be the same:

Under the proposed changes, confessional boxes, altars and classical sculptures will be replaced with modern art murals, and new sound and light effects to create “emotional spaces”.

There will be themed chapels on a “discovery trail”, with an emphasis on Africa and Asia, while quotes from the Bible will be projected onto chapel walls in various languages, including Mandarin.

The final chapel on the trail will have a strong environmental emphasis.

“It’s as if Disney were entering Notre-Dame,” fumes Parisian architect Maurice Culot. “It’s a kind of theme park and very childish and trivial given the grandeur of the place.”

Notre Dame also sustained severe damage during the French Revolution, but afterward it was restored to its previous glory. Today’s ruling class wants only to revile and pervert Western history. The people in charge refuse to preserve our heritage, much less restore it.

Mohammad permitted churches to remain standing in regions conquered by his armies, but did not allow new ones to be built or old ones to be restored. In effect, his policy is still in force where Notre Dame is concerned.

New Exhibit at College Football Hall of Farse

That which moonbattery corrupts, it reduces to farce. This has been conspicuously true of modern art, the news media, and the Democratic Party. Now that the world of sports has been absorbed by leftist politics, the same principle applies.

Recall that Sarah Fuller moved her teammates on Vanderbilt’s men’s football team to sentimental tears with a lame squib kick during a 41–0 loss. Even that was not absurd enough to fully reflect the ridiculousness of moonbattery. So the liberals who run sports pushed the preposterousness still further:

The College Football Hall Of Fame has added Sarah Fuller’s uniform to its collection…

Here’s why:

[T]his month she became the first female player to score in a Power 5 game when she kicked for an extra point last week before her two-game football career came to an end.

This is not the first award to be bestowed upon Sarah Fuller for her roll in reducing football to a comical exercise in political correctness:

Fuller was not only made the SEC special teams player of the week during the first week of December, but she was also nominated for a Courage Award.

In an offensive oversight that underscores how far we still have to go to correct historic injustice, Biden’s handlers have so far failed to offer her a cabinet position.

When they establish the Museum of American Decline, this will be found among the exhibits:

The Atlantic Denounces Rosary as Extremist Symbol

Under moonbat hegemony, good and evil are reversed. Symbols of America’s glorious founding, including the Betsy Ross and Gadsden flags, are explicitly regarded by the FBI as extremist symbols (i.e., evidence of thoughtcrime). If the Democratic Party continues to consolidate power, both are likely to be illegal soon — as are rosaries:

Atlantic contributor Daniel Panneton declared that the Catholic rosary has become a “symbol” of religious radicalism.

Rosaries are considered to represent a Catholicism that believes in itself. This stands in conflict with the blasphemous sham practiced by cafeteria Catholics, who select for acceptance only the shallow trappings of Christianity that do not conflict with their actual faith, which is moonbattery.

Panneton slammed an entire online ecosystem for disseminating imagery featuring Christian warriors both historical and modern, suggesting that “social-media pages are saturated with images of rosaries draped over firearms, warriors in prayer, Deus Vult (‘God wills it’) crusader memes, and exhortations for men to rise up and become Church Militants.”

Panneton admits that “many take genuine sustenance from … the tradition of regarding the rosary as a weapon against Satan.”

Consequently, the rosary must be denounced harshly:

“Catholic imagery now blends freely with staple alt-right memes that romanticize ancient Rome or idealize the traditional patriarchal family.”

The leftist agenda calls for eradicating both the West’s great history and the traditional family.

Panneton also frets that the conflict between Catholics and Protestants is fading away, as they have become united against the common enemy: satanic degenerates — or as Panneton calls them, “abortion-rights advocates.”

It may be only a matter of time until the moronic bumper sticker slogan “Keep Your Rosaries Off My Ovaries” becomes the basis of law. Rosaries will need to be stored in secure hiding places for when the FBI launches Mar-a-Lago style raids in search of extremist symbols.

Global Warming Is Racist

The beauty of modern liberal ideology is that everything in the universe fits into its core principle that blacks are oppressed. All bad things are aspects of black oppression — even global warming:

A letter from New York City Department of health officials warned medical workers…

…that extreme heat “is the deadliest type of extreme weather” and that black people are twice as likely to die from heat stroke as white people in the Big Apple.

“Cold weather is 20 times as deadly as hot weather” admit even the libs at USA Today. But that only applies to the real world, not the realm of pure moonbattery inhabited by the kooks running NYC.

“Structural racism and the resulting social and economic inequities” are the reasons that heat affects blacks more than whites, according to ideologically deranged Health Department bureaurats.

Historically redlined neighborhoods across the country that are currently home to a large black population can be 13 degrees hotter than majority of white neighborhoods, a 2020 study found.

The Experts are expert at proving whatever needs to be proven. That’s how government funding is acquired.

Since the natural fluctuation of the climate that leftists have exploited to justify wasteful spending and increase their power affects sacred blacks worse than the less worthy white race, it would be racist not to grant Democrats the total control required to take charge of the planet’s thermostat.

Sexual Brainwashing in Portland Public Schools

Liberals have been allowed to take control of education. Christopher Rufo reports on the unfolding consequences:

Portland Public Schools has launched a war against the “gender binary” and adopted a radical new curriculum teaching students to subvert the sexuality of “white colonizers” and begin exploring “the infinite gender spectrum.”

Modern liberal ideology largely consists of sexual depravity grafted onto hatred of Caucasians and Western Civilization.

The premise is simple: privileged white heterosexuals have created an oppressive gender system in order to dominate racial and sexual minorities. As the curriculum explains, “gender is colonized,” and Western societies have used language to erase alternative sexualities. “When white European people colonized different places, they brought their own ideas about gender and sexuality,” the curriculum reads. “When the United States was colonized by white settlers, their views around gender were forced upon the people already living here. Hundreds of years later, how we think and talk about gender are still impacted by this shift.”

To a liberal, it doesn’t matter whether something is true or even remotely likely, but only whether it is politically correct to assert. That is why we now have professors professing that the concept of being male did not exist in the Western hemisphere until it was “imposed by Christian colonizers.”

If leftists continue to control education, these psychotic delusions may come to be accepted as reality.

The curriculum begins in kindergarten with an anatomy lesson featuring graphic drawings of children’s genitalia. The lesson avoids the terms “boy” and “girl” in favor of the gender-neutral variants “person with a penis” and “person with a vulva,” because, according to the curriculum, some girls can have penises and some boys can have vulvas.

First and second grade students are encouraged to adopt alternative genders and pronouns.

In third through fifth grade, the district begins lessons on “LGBTQIA2S+” activism. The curriculum presents the categories of “man” and “woman” as manifestations of the “dominant culture” that has used sexual norms to oppress minorities.

Kids who probably have not learned to solve simple math problems are taught about “cisheteronormativity,” which they are told must be destroyed.

The solution, according to Portland Public Schools, is to obliterate the “white colonizer” conception of sexuality, with its rigid male-female binary, and encourage students to inhabit “the infinite gender spectrum.”

The indoctrination is truly sinister:

The curriculum provides a detailed explanation of how to “pause puberty” through “hormones and/or surgeries”…

The social engineers intend to create pint-sized activists for the cause of politicized perversion:

By the end of fifth grade, the curriculum explicitly asks students to make a “commitment to change,” according to the dictates of gender ideology. Students receive a list of six commitments, including: “I commit to learning more about what LGBTQIA2S+ words mean and how they have changed over time”; “I commit to learning about the history and leadership of Black trans women”; “I commit to practicing pronouns and correcting myself EVERY time”; “I commit to attending QSA/GSA and being a leader at my school”; and “I commit to watching and reading books, movies, and TV shows that have LGBTQIA+ characters.”

Decent Americans need to make their own commitment: to see that groomers who impose LGBT curricula are imprisoned as sex offenders.

Biden Regime Goes After Poultry Industry

To learn the future of America, study the history of the USSR, because Democrats are reenacting it. Vladimir Lenin’s call to grind the middle class out of existence between the millstones of taxation and inflation was a preview of modern Democrat economic policy. Stalin’s use of starvation to subjugate the population presaged what may come next as Democrats begin to choke off the food supply as they have already done to oil.

It doesn’t stop with Gavin Newsom using the liberal war on freelancers to cripple the trucking industry, which we rely on to deliver food. The Biden Regime has begun to target food producers:

The Justice Department filed a lawsuit Monday against some of the largest poultry producers in the U.S. along with a proposed settlement seeking to end what it claims have been longstanding deceptive and abusive practices for workers.

The suit, filed in federal court in Maryland, names Cargill, Sanderson Farms and Wayne Farms…

It also comes as the department continues a broader investigation into labor abuses in the poultry industry.

That’s why they want to forbid freelance work nationwide. The workers are oppressed, and Democrats want to liberate them by ending their employment.

The defendants and unnamed co-conspirators in the lawsuit account for hiring about 90% of all chicken processing jobs in the nation.

What do you need chicken for? Eating bugs is better for the climate, according to liberal doctrine.

The suit against the companies was filed with a proposed consent decree — a settlement that would require the companies to pay $84.8 million in restitution for workers…

Looting in the name of the proletariat will not stop food prices from continuing to rise.

The settlement would also put in place a federal monitor selected by the Justice Department who would ensure compliance for the next decade. The consent decree also would permit Justice Department lawyers and investigators to inspect the poultry processors’ facilities and interview their employees to ensure they are complying with the terms, according to court documents.

The people who handled the withdrawal from Afghanistan are now going to micromanage the poultry industry.

This will not end well, unless it ends with Democrats being removed from power quickly and decisively.

Elizabeth Warren: Shut Down Pregnancy Crisis Centers

If one job in modern America is a pathway to sainthood, it is working at a pregnancy crisis center, helping women in trouble while saving the lives of their babies. That would be where to look for the next Mother Theresa. On the opposite extreme of the good–evil spectrum, prominent Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren wants Big Government to shut these centers down:

No one tops Fauxcahontas when it comes to feigning moral outrage while advocating sheer evil.

Heidi Matzke of the Alternatives Pregnancy Center describes what Warren is knowingly egging on by noting that “Pregnancy care centers from coast to coast are being targeted for violent assaults of vandalism.”

“We have been forced to hire 24-hour on site security. We have had to reinforce doors and bullet-proof our walls,” Matzke continued. “We’ve had to paint our building with anti-graffiti coating. We’ve added cameras, armed our staff with pepper spray and stopped running our mobile clinic because of threats of violence.”

Socialists say you can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs. Likewise, you can’t kill enough babies to suit Democrats without terrorizing pro-life pregnancy crisis centers and trying to shut them down.

Moonbats Defile Monticello

To destroy a nation, you have to turn it against its own heritage. You have to tear down its greatest heroes. This is why the Black Lives Matter riots prominently featured the destruction of statues of the Founding Fathers. It is why Monticello — long preserved as a shrine to the greatness of the author of the Declaration of Independence — is now being used by America’s enemies to propagandize against its creator Thomas Jefferson:

The new emphasis is the culmination of a 10-year effort to balance the historical record, officials of the Thomas Jefferson Foundation, the nonprofit that owns the estate, have said.

But visitors complain that employees go out of their way to belittle Jefferson and his life.

Jefferson has been targeted for erasure on the grounds that he took part in a society that did not comply with 21st standards of political correctness. Like the rest of the landowners in 18th century Virginia, he had slaves.

Already his statue has been expelled from New York City Council by Bill de Blasio after nearly 2 centuries. Now they have transformed Monticello into a soapbox from which to denounce him, rendering the monument pointless.

The propaganda is executed with the subtlety we have come to expect of progressives. The ticket booth in the visitor’s center is “decorated with a contemporary painting of Jefferson’s weeping slaves.” Exhibits focus on Sally Hemings, a mixed race slave with whom Jefferson allegedly had children. If liberals prevail, this possibly fictional relationship is all that will be remembered about him.

Upon entering the mansion, visitors are confronted by a gigantic modern painting of a faceless black man. It was commissioned in honor of “Juneteenth.” Smirks Monticello guide Susan Woodward,

“It’s quite provocative, I do believe.”

The book shop features the excretions of proponents of critical race theory Ibram X. Kendi and Ta-Nehisi Coates. How provocative.

The message that Jefferson owned slaves and was therefore a bad man is ubiquitous. Visitors are also belligerently reminded that Monticello was built on land where sacred savages once roamed happy and free, before evil white people like Jefferson came to oppress them.

This will surprise no one:

The Thomas Jefferson Foundation is run by a roster of big-money Dem donors and former Democratic officials…

The foundation is chaired by Melody Barnes, former assistant to Barack Obama and director of the White House Domestic Policy Council, who has griped in WaPo about all the nice things people say about that scoundrel Thomas Jefferson.

Allowing leftists to take over Monticello is like putting satanists in charge of the Vatican.

Marginalization of Police and Its Consequences

Liberal rule means anarchotyranny. This entails the paradox of a police state where the police have been marginalized and crime is rampant.

Mouth off at a school board meeting and you will draw the attention of federal authorities. But if you commit an actual crime, all you have to do to is run away:

Chicago police officers will no longer be allowed to chase people on foot simply because they run away or they’ve committed minor offenses, the department said Tuesday…

Cops know that when in doubt, they should let the criminal go:

The policy also makes a point of reminding officers that they or their supervisors will not be criticized or disciplined for deciding against a foot pursuit or calling one off…

Even if officers feel bureauweenies won’t punish them too severely for giving chase,

The policy includes a number of circumstances in which an officer must call off a chase, including a requirement that the pursuit must end if a third party is injured and needs immediate medical attention that can’t be provided by anyone else.

All the criminal needs to do is injure an innocent bystander. Perverse incentives are a specialty of the Democrats in charge.

In Britain, burglary is virtually legal now, because police are too busy repressing thoughtcrime to do anything about it:

You can’t expect the police to hunt down criminals when they have other priorities — like promoting sexual depravity on behalf of our degenerate ruling class:

The effects of marginalizing the police and subordinating law enforcement to moonbattery are becoming evident. Just visit a McDonald’s…

…or a grocery store:

Either civilization literally perishes of bleeding heart liberalism, or there will be a backlash against it so massive as to be audible from outer space.
