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:

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:

Toxic Victimhood

The religion of the modern Democrat Party is critical theory, with a primary emphasis on critical race theory. With the exception of those gifted at exploiting it (e.g., Robin DiAngelo), this ideology does not benefit white people, nor is it intended to. But with the exception of those gifted at exploiting it (e.g., Ibram Henry Rogers, or as he now calls himself, Ibram X. Kendi), it does not benefit blacks either. An ironic outcome of rule by antiwhite racists is that in the long run it will hurt blacks even more than whites.

John McWhorter had better be right about the coming pushback against moonbattery. Otherwise, Democrats will use critical theory to tear the country to pieces and flush it away.

Farmers Paid to Destroy Crops

If the federal government would strangulate the economy by paying people not to work, why wouldn’t it pay farmers to destroy their crops?

Joseph Stalin — a Founding Father of modern progressivism — infamously used starvation to control the population. Starvation was the most prominent feature of life in China under leftist icon Mao Zedong.

Specific to American history, our most aggressively socialist president prior to Biden was FDR, who was able to prolong the Great Depression for years. His administration inflicted the insane Agricultural Adjustment Act, which was explicitly intended to create artificial scarcity so as to increase prices.

Since the media has been politicized nearly to the point of uselessness, it is hard to know what information to believe. What we know for sure is that the federal government under radicalized Democrats is hostile to the American people.

Mark Milley and the Reichstag Moment

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley is more worried about mythical “white rage” than the People’s Liberation Army because he is more political hack than military leader, hence his current position. Like the figurehead he serves, he tends to be wrong. But sometimes a stopped clock is right.

Via Breitbart:

Milley was allegedly so worried that then-President Donald Trump might attempt a coup after the presidential election last year that he and other service chiefs discussed a plan to resign rather than carry it out, according to reports about a forthcoming book by two Washington Post reporters.

“This is a Reichstag moment… The gospel of the Führer,” Milley told aides, according to CNN, which obtained advance excerpts of the book I Alone Can Fix It by Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker.

What Milley is right about is that there was a Reichstag moment on January 6. A rowdy mob that had been infiltrated by the FBI took advantage of scandalously lax security to trespass in the People’s House, possibly as a result of instigation by agents of the federal government. Although a window broken by a leftist infiltrator and an unauthorized person sitting at Nancy Pelosi’s desk may pale in comparison with burning down the German parliament building, the media/Democrat Party has made up the difference by relentlessly hyping the incident, shrieking that it was more serious than 9/11 and even the Civil War. Just like the Reichstag fire, January 6 has been exploited by the ruling party as a pretext to inflict tyranny, as those who have been hunted by the FBI or locked in solitary confinement for suspicion of trespassing can attest.

Less hilarious than Milley’s hysteria about a Trump coup d’état is his ferociously hostile attitude toward half the American population:

Milley also reportedly told aides ahead of a pro-Trump “Million MAGA March” in November that he feared it could be the “modern American equivalent of ‘brownshirts in the streets,’” referring to the pro-Nazi militia supporting Hitler’s rise.

Despite cheating by Democrats, Trump racked up over 74 million votes in 2020. That is a lot of Nazis to deal with. No worries; Milley and his fellow leftist Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin exhibit the fanatism to handle the job.

Leftists Pretend Wi Spa Incident Was Staged

The Battle of Wi Spa rages on. If it escalates, it could become a turning point in the Culture War.

The battle began when a woman defiantly objected to a degenerate exposing himself in the ladies’ locker room, proclaiming that he identifies as a female while displaying his genitals. Since this occurred in Los Angeles in 2021, the owners sided with the predator, giving a politically correct thumbs up to his sexual harassment of innocent women and even little girls. Christians demonstrated on behalf of decency in front of the spa. They were violently assaulted by Antifa goons for resisting the LGBT agenda.

The ongoing battle has done so much to reveal the vileness and depravity at the heart of modern liberalism that leftists now pretend the whole incident is a hoax of the type they themselves specialize in. This risible example of projection can be taken as a tacit admission that their side’s behavior at Wi Spa is indefensible.

Top Teachers Union Throws Extremism Into Overdrive

Despite the catastrophic effect they have had on education, Teachers unions remain in control of it due to their symbiotic relationship with the corrupt Democratic Party, which prevents them from facing accountability and even kneecaps competition in exchange for a steady flow of campaign cash raised through union dues. Teachers unions are so powerful under Democrat rule that they dictate Covid policy to the CDC, so that it prioritizes the convenience of teachers. As the Left veers ever further off the rails into radicalism, teachers unions remain at the vanguard.

Last week the National Education Association, which represents 3 million educators, held its national convention. Delegates approved various measures that do not bode well for American education, as the Wall Street Journal observes:

One calls for the union to support and lead campaigns that “result in increasing the implementation of culturally responsive education, critical race theory, and ethnic (Native people, Asian, Black, Latin(o/a/x), Middle Eastern, North African, and Pacific Islander) Studies curriculum in pre- K-12 and higher education.”

Anyone who is not white qualifies for racial praise. Critical race theory is a Marxist weaponization of postmodernism, focused on demonization of Caucasians.

The delegates also directed the NEA to lobby for “professional development around cultural responsiveness, implicit bias, anti-racism, trauma-informed practices, restorative justice practices and other racial justice trainings” for “all school employees.”

Not even the school janitor will escape indoctrination on the evils of the white race. But the main point is to brainwash children. That’s what schools are for, under leftist rule.

Another delegate-approved measure calls for the union to issue a study criticizing “empire, white supremacy, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, racism, patriarchy, cisheteropatriarchy, capitalism, ableism, anthropocentrism, and other forms of power and oppression at the intersections of our society.”

As children struggle to make sense of the bizarre terminology, adults will snicker at the absurdity of leftist fever swamp ideology. But the next generation will regard it as objective truth. Already, there are grown adults who regard this malevolent lunacy as having some kind of validity. Such people run the government, the media, and worst of all the schools.

American heroes are to be vilified, marginalized, and eventually erased, because they embody “empire” and “white supremacy.” In their place, children will be taught to revere leftist antiheroes — like a violent career criminal who died of a fentanyl overdose while resisting arrest:

Another approved statement asks the union to “join with Black Lives Matter at School and the Zinn Education Project” to hold a rally on George Floyd’s birthday, honor other victims of police violence, and promote “a national day of action to teach lessons about structural racism and oppression.”

The reference is to Howard Zinn, a communist who propagandized against America by recasting our history with the USA as the villain throughout.

And don’t forget the call for the union to share resources for “decolonizing the curriculum” with educators to use in the classroom.

To “decolonize” is to purge of anything that leftists associate with Western Civilization.

Lincoln predicted that America would be destroyed from within. Teachers unions may prove him right.

Macron: American Moonbattery Is Ruining France

How bad is the moonbattery in Biden’s handers’ America? So bad that France’s globalist President Emmanuel Macron warns that wokeness imported from the USA is fracturing the foundations of French society:

If moonbattery imported from America does tear France apart, it will be poetic justice. The ideology of our Democratic Party is based on critical theory, which is a Marxist weaponization of the postmodernism pioneered by nutty French professors like Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida. However, it would be infinitely preferable for Marine Le Pen to be given a chance to save her country — and for similar patriots to save the USA.

Apple Pie Denounced as Racist

Given that Old Glory sends liberals into paroxysms of horror and that the concept of motherhood is regarded as so obscene that the term “birthing people” is used in place of “mothers,” Ben Shapiro tweeted this yesterday:

Wrong. The Guardian, flagship publication of Britain’s liberal establishment, proclaims that apple pie is not merely racist but genocidal against sacred indigenous people.

The Daily Mail reports:

Writing in the famously liberal publication, food writer Raj Patel claimed the all-American dessert was born of colonialism and slavery…

The piece, titled ‘Food injustice has deep roots: let’s start with America’s apple pie’, claims the pie has ‘bloody origins’ and is ‘as American as stolen land, wealth and labor.’

“Food injustice.” Inside their bubble of mutual masturbation, elitist moonbats have no idea how absurd they are from the perspective of sane people.

Despite loathing America for being the land of stolen land, wealth, and labor,

Patel is a British Indian author and documentary maker … who now has US citizenship…

Why do we import foreigners who hate us? It’s not as if we have a shortage of moonbats. Patel’s contributions to his adopted country have not been notably positive:

[Patel] is also a vocal activist, taking part in the World Trade Organization protest in Seattle in 1999…

That was a prequel to the BLM/Antifa riots that have torn apart Seattle over the past year. Patel says he has “very strong anarchist sympathies.” Antifa militants often call themselves anarchists.

Barks Patel:

‘Apples traveled to the western hemisphere with colonists in the 1500s in what used to be called the Columbian Exchange, but is now better understood as a vast and ongoing genocide of Indigenous people.’

In reality, the expansion of Western Civilization is the best thing that ever happened to the human race. Prior to it, life was nasty, brutish, and short, as Thomas Hobbes put it. The world has electricity, limited government, and modern food, medicine, and transportation thanks to what ungrateful moonbats call “genocide.”

The author went on to say that English colonizers used apple trees ‘as markers of civilization, which is to say property,’ in new lands where they settled.

Cultivating wilderness equals stealing land, because “property is theft,” according to French anarchist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon.

He added: ‘John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed, took these markers of colonized property to the frontiers of US expansion where his trees stood as symbols that Indigenous communities had been extirpated.’

By eating apple pie, you endorse the extirpation of the noble nonwhites.

Even the crust on apple pie is politically unclean:

Patel continued: ‘Not that the sugar on the crust is uniquely American.’ He then detailed how sugar’s arrival in the United States in the 1700s was inextricably linked to the French slavery trade in New Orleans, and that the Big Easy ‘had become a concomitant hub of the slave trade’ as the sweet stuff’s popularity burgeoned.

As for the checked gingham cloth upon which an apple pie may be left to cool in a traditional American kitchen, that is cultural appropriation:

He explained that Native Americans were already wearing cotton by the time Christopher Columbus landed in America in 1492, with the pattern itself likely originating from southeastern Asia.

Patel links the cotton of which such cloth is made to “genocide against millions of Indigenous people in North America, and millions of Africans and their descendants through the transatlantic slave trade.” Cotton allegedly “laid the basis of finance, police and government that made the United States,” which is not so much a country as an abomination against political correctness.

There is no aspect of American civilization that they will not vilify and demonize. Criticizing everything with the relentlessness of rust is the “critical theory” approach to destroying society so that they can replace it with a socially engineered leftist dystopia.

African Child Slaves Die for Electric Cars

Taxpayers who are forced to subsidize them are not the only ones who have to help pick up the tab for the pricey electric moonbatmobiles Democrats demand we drive. The batteries require cobalt, much of which is mined by children in the Congo, under circumstances that virtue signalers would rather not think about. Some of their parents have filed a class action lawsuit against several US companies, including Tesla:

“Cobalt is a key component of every rechargeable lithium-ion battery in all of the gadgets made by defendants and all other tech and electric car companies in the world that has brought on the latest wave of cruel exploitation fueled by greed, corruption and indifference to a population of powerless, starving Congolese people,” the suit reads.

US companies point out that these families have no standing to sue them in US courts, and shrug that it is not their business how mines are operated in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

“There is no question that defendants have specific knowledge that the cobalt mined in DRC they use in their various products includes cobalt that was produced by children working under extremely hazardous conditions, that serious mining accidents are common due to the primitive conditions and complete lack of safety precautions in the mines, and that hundreds, if not thousands, of children have been maimed or killed to produce the cobalt needed for the world’s modern tech gadgets produced by defendants and other companies,” the lawsuit says.

They ought to sue the Democratic Party for trying to force us into electric cars. Imagine the demand for cobalt if Dems achieve their stated objective of abolishing regular cars. Already, mining required by electric cars threatens a species with extinction.

Chinese Communist Evil Does Not Stay in China

In terms of people killed, the communist government ruling China is the most malevolent that has ever existed. It killed as many as 80 million people under progressive icon Mao Zedong. It appears to have killed millions worldwide (including over half a million Americans) by creating Covid, releasing it, and covering it up instead of giving warning.

But as Mao’s role model Stalin said, one death is a tragedy; a million deaths are just a statistic. To fully appreciate how evil communist China is, get a personal perspective from Sayragul Sauytbay, who knows a little about the hundreds of concentration camps in which the Chinese Communist Party incarcerates millions of people:

Sauytbay was forced to work as a teacher at one of them, before her release in 2018 and subsequent escape to Sweden.

Near the guardhouse was a torture chamber called the “black room,” from which she heard screams “like the raw cries of a dying animal.”

She recalls seeing chains on the walls in the black room, and chairs with “nails sticking out of the seats” where inmates would be tied down. Torture devices on the walls “looked like they were from the Middle Ages,” including “implements used to pull out fingernails and toenails,” and a spear-like rod “for jabbing into a person’s flesh.” Electric chairs, “iron chairs with holes in the back so that the arms could be twisted back above the shoulder joint,” and other chairs designed to pin victims down lined one side of the room.

As Sauytbay praised the warmth of self-sacrificing patriarch Xi Jinping, her “students” would lose consciousness from what they had endured and fall off their chairs.

One 84-year-old woman Sauytbay remembers was accused of making an international phone call. Despite her denial, the camp guards punished her by ripping out her fingernails.

ChiCom horrors have a modern twist. Some inmates are slated for organ harvesting.

As we learned from Covid, what happens in China does not stay in China. Sauytbay reports having seen classified papers detailing plans for world conquest that are already in their initial stages, Hong Kong having fallen without a peep from the rest of the world. The plans call for the occupation of Europe somewhere between 2035 and 2055.

This threat is credible, because the West has been so turned against itself by leftist politics that it is incapable of fighting back. In their moral degeneracy, many side with the ChiComs against freedom and decency. The entertainment industry offers many examples, including John Cena:

Cena, the professional wrestler and star of the newest “Fast and Furious” movie, apologized to Chinese fans and professed his “love” to China on Tuesday after he faced backlash for calling Taiwan a country during a promotional interview.

Taiwan has been a separate country since 1949. But you mustn’t say so, because the ChiComs plan to annex it. After that comes the Korean peninsula, Japan, the Philippines, Australia…

Cena apologized in Mandarin for a statement he made in an interview with the Taiwanese broadcaster TVBS, where he said “Taiwan is the first country that can watch the film.”

Cena’s bulging biceps are less impressive in light of him groveling before his ChiCom masters in their language, which he did because China is the world’s biggest movie market.

Sports are no better. When Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey expressed support for democracy in Hong Kong, the righteous social justice warrior LeBron James denounced him. China banned NBA broadcasts for a year, costing the league up to $400 million. The NBA will make certain to toe the ChiCom line in the future.

The CCP’s influence extends to the top of our government. Biden’s Big Tech backers engaged in such heavy-handed censorship to suppress the Hunter laptop bombshell because it drew attention to his financial ties to the Chinese regime. Now CNN admits that the Biden Administration has shut down a State Department investigation into Covid’s likely origin inside the Wuhan Institute of Virology:

The existence of the State Department inquiry and its termination this spring by the Biden administration — neither of which has been previously reported — comes to light amid renewed interest in whether the virus could have leaked out of a Wuhan lab with links to the Chinese military. …

Those involved in the previously undisclosed inquiry, which was launched last fall by allies of then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, say it was an honest effort to probe what many initially dismissed: that China’s biological weapons program could have had a greater role in the pandemic’s origin in Wuhan…

The Chinese government is party to the major international agreements regulating biological weapons which prohibit developing, producing, transferring or stockpiling of bacteriological and toxin weapons. The US government has said that it believes China maintained an offensive biological weapons program even after joining the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention in 1984. …

Pompeo put out a statement as the Trump administration was leaving office that said the US had determined collaboration between the Wuhan lab where Covid-19 research has been conducted on bats, and secret Chinese military projects.

Yet we have Dr Fauci apparently funding their gain-of-function research efforts with our money.

The Biden administration’s effort to investigate the origins of the pandemic is primarily focused on rallying pressure and support for the WHO’s investigation to be transparent and fulsome, explained a Biden administration official.

The WHO is largely controlled by the ChiComs. This is why Trump cut US funding to it. Biden immediately restored that funding.

China can accomplish this much dominance just with money. Meanwhile, as our military focuses on wokeness and purging patriots, China already has the world’s largest navy.
