Michelle Obama: Police Might Kill My Daughters

Just when I thought nothing could lower my opinion of Michelle Obama, she belligerently whimpers that police might murder her daughters for being black:

Though she says she breathed “a sign of relief” after a jury convicted Derek Chauvin of the murder of George Floyd last month, former First Lady Michelle Obama told CBS This Morning’s Gayle King that “there’s still work to be done” when it comes to social justice.

Sacrificing one white cop to her ideology in a Stalinesque show trial is hardly going to appease Michelle Obama.

Noting that her daughters — 19-year-old Sasha and 22-year-old Malia — both drive, the former first lady said she worries for their safety whenever they leave the house.

“They’re driving, but every time they get in a car by themselves, I worry about what assumption is being made by somebody who doesn’t know everything about them: The fact that they are good students and polite girls, but maybe they’re playing their music a little loud. Maybe somebody sees the back of their head and makes an assumption,” she said.

Obama continued: “I, like so many parents of Black kids … the innocent act of getting a license puts fear in our hearts.”

Please. Michelle Obama is not smart enough to have gotten into Princeton if she weren’t black, but she has more than enough cognitive capacity to understand that it is preposterous to suggest the police would kill her privileged daughters — or anyone else — for being black.

She also knows the effect bogus black oppression propaganda is having on the country. After all, it was her community organizer husband who put us on our current path to destruction by exploiting the timely demises of sociopaths Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown for divisive purposes, not to mention the farcical Henry Louis Gates incident.

Covid Isolation as a Reprieve From Racism

By rewarding designated victims for theatrically wallowing in paranoid neuroses and stripping them of the concept of shame, the liberal establishment has reduced them to sniveling wrecks. The New York Times recently featured a letter to the editor from Michael Reid, complete with photos and the following title:

Covid Isolation: A Reprieve From the Stresses of Racism

Reid reports that he feels himself to be oppressed:

I am a Black man weighing in at about 200 pounds. My Afro hairstyle adds a couple of inches to my six-foot frame. Consequently, I stand out in the predominantly white spaces I inhabit.

The term “white spaces” is a clue that we are dealing with someone with advanced training in moonbattery. The white space he inhabits is Santa Fe — not exactly a hotbed of political incorrectness.

The town seems to draw eccentrics. Reid may be one of them.

In the early months of the pandemic, I noticed myself growing more relaxed. I welcomed isolation and the familiarity of my home. My breath grew deeper and more regular. … It felt safe being inside.

But as I begin to venture back outside, now fully vaccinated, I realize that my transition from a normally high level of stress and anxiety was not entirely due to shielding from the coronavirus, but the sudden absence of everyday encounters with racism and microaggression.

No specific microaggressions or encounters with racism are described or even hinted at.

If he wants a permanent reprieve from the stresses of racism, he could always move to a country where blacks have it better than they do in the USA. Problem is, there is no such country.

Who Has Privilege?

“Privilege” is a favorite word of moonbats. It doesn’t mean what they think it means. Adam Carolla understands that the real white privilege is the privilege of not obsessing over privilege. That is, it is the privilege of not being privileged with victim status, which opens doors but undermines the personal responsibility required for meaningful achievement.

Imaginary Noose Menaces Black Professors

Just as Bubba Wallace was beginning to recover from the trauma of seeing a noose pretending to be a garage door pull, another racist noose has been discovered. This time the victims are two black professors at Penn State University. They are too intelligent and highly educated to be fooled by a noose posing as a random piece of rope that had been thrown into a tree.

The College Fix reports:

As reported by the PSU student newspaper Daily Collegian, the professors said the incident was “deeply distressing to them and their family.”

As Persons of Oppressedness, they are the center of the universe, so naturally they assumed that the noose had been “deliberately placed [on the tree] to harass them.”

Penn State President Eric Barron was quick to “express concern and offer support.”

Naturally, the police were called in to investigate.

Alas, according to the professors’ neighbor who was interviewed by police, the “noose” actually was part of a swing set. The neighbors’ kid told police he merely had thrown the rope “into the woods.”

Showcasing the systemic racism that characterizes local law enforcement, Patton, Pennsylvania police chief Tyler Jolley found that there was no malice and no crime had occurred. A kid threw a rope and it happened to land on a tree branch, end of story.

Jolley obviously requires indoctrination in critical race theory. It doesn’t matter that there was no racist intent. The black professors felt themselves to be oppressed by the rope; therefore, the rope is racist. The tree is racist too, and should be chopped down at once in the name of racial justice.

Patrisse Cullors Was Living Large Before George Floyd

Self-avowed “trained Marxist” and Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors was living large even before $millions poured in during the George Floyd riots. She had already been milking oppression for a pretty penny with a racket called Reform LA Jails, which promotes itself as “powered by Black Lives Matter” and which boasts endorsements from such stars of the liberal firmament as Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Ilhan Omar, and Maxine Waters.

Daily Caller reports:

A Los Angeles-based jail reform group led by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent nearly $26,000 for “meetings” at a luxury Malibu beach resort in 2019, according to campaign finance records reviewed by the Daily Caller News Foundation. …

Guests at the 200-acre resort, where rooms start at $600 a night, have exclusive access to a private five-acre strip of the Malibu coast.

It’s high times all around at Reform LA Jails.

A review of Reform LA Jails’ social media records shows that the group organized multiple events in the Los Angeles area in the second half of 2019, including a party at actress Jane Fonda’s house and a “day party + summit” in Pasadena featuring live music and local artists.

Friends of Cullors make out well too, like her mentor and coauthor of her autobiography, Asha Bandele.

Bandele raked in nearly $260,000 in consulting fees from Reform LA Jails in 2019, representing over 18% of the group’s total spending that year, according to campaign finance records.

That’s even more than Patrisse herself.

Cullors also took in $191,000 in 2019 from Reform LA Jails in 2019, the DCNF previously reported.

You can see why they pretend there is still such a thing as black oppression, even in the country where blacks live better than anywhere else on earth. The charade pays off big time.

Reform LA Jails issued a statement declaring that it is “sexist and racist” to question the mountains of cash Cullors has been raking in.

Canceling Isaac Newton

Progressives are serious about erasing Western Civilization in toto on the grounds that it is racist according to critical race theory. Even Sir Isaac Newton, the Father of Physics, may face cancelation as curricula are decolonized:

Newton has been labelled as a potential beneficiary of “colonial-era activity” in draft plans to “decolonise” the engineering curriculum at Sheffield University. …

The plans form part of the engineering faculty’s efforts to “challenge long-standing conscious and unconscious biases” among students to tackle “Eurocentric” and “white saviour” approaches to science and maths, and promote “inclusive design”.

Maybe Newton can survive total cancelation if they balance his discoveries with the delusional beliefs of dysfunctional savages who lived at the time.

Newton, who lived until 1727, laid the foundations of modern science with his theory of gravity, in the seminal Principia, and theories on light, time, colour and calculus.

His equation for universal gravitation, written in 1666 when he was 23, helped overthrow more than a thousand years of Aristotelian thinking.

Newton ranks among the greatest scientific minds of all time. But he was a white guy, so he will be lucky not to be erased — especially since he lived at a time when Western Civilization was raising the standard of living of the entire world by expanding through colonization.

Newton’s opinion of slavery is both irrelevant and unknown. However, he owned shares in a company that was involved in the slave trade. He lost a fortune when the company tanked, but that hardly expiates the sin of having participated no matter how tangentially in a practice that had been common throughout the world since the beginning of recorded history.

Other shareholders at the time included 462 members of the House of Commons and 100 members of the House of Lords.

Cancel them all!

If the Jacobins running British universities can cancel classical music in the name of critical race theory, they can cancel anything, even Newtonian physics. It would be blasphemy to suggest that the law of gravity might still be in force even after it has been repealed for being racist, because that would imply that the universe is not centered on historic black oppression.

Remarks Toby Young, general secretary of the Free Speech Union,

“Newton famously said, ‘If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.’ Everyone studying maths or engineering deserves to stand on Newton’s shoulders so they, too, can see further, regardless of their ethnicity.”

But the woke don’t need to see. They already know all there is to know. All that remains for them is to eradicate everyone living or dead who might contradict them.

Arrested for Pushing a Punk

The racial arsonists running the liberal establishment media are so desperate to find racism against sacred blacks that a soldier shoving a lowlife who was harassing a girl and wouldn’t leave the neighborhood stars as the villain in a national news story, thanks to the respective races lining up with the official narrative.

Jonathan Pentland was actually arrested for assault for pushing the trouble-making punk. The predictable result of the media’s distortion and demagoguery was a black mob inflicting the racial intimidation that now dominates our culture.

Needless to say, if the races had been reversed, any charges pressed would have been against the punk. Then the story would have been about a noble and courageous Person of Color who rescued an innocent girl from the depredations of an evil Caucasian.

The liberal establishment media and Black Lives Matter excrete so many malevolent lies into the public consciousness that no matter how easy they are to debunk, it is hard to keep up with them all. Mark Dice handles the Jonathan Pentland case:

Cheese Denounced as Racist

Nothing is safe from accusations of racism — not even cheese. From the UK:

Extinction rebellion member Alison Plaumer told local officials at a Brighton and Hove City Council meeting that dairy is racist because black people are more likely to be lactose intolerant.

According to my geographical research, Britain is located in Europe. Those who live there are overwhelmingly European. But that doesn’t matter. Imaginary black oppression is the axis around which the entire planet revolves.

“Arguably, there is a racist element to serving dairy too much because 65 per cent of the world’s population are lactose intolerant, many from the BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) community,” said Plaumer.

Typically of leftists, she is playing the race card to advance an unrelated agenda. What she actually wants is for all the food to be plant-based, presumably because according to environmentalist dogma, animal farming makes it be too warm outside.

Plaumer launched the campaign despite the fact that children already have a vegan option every day.

Moonbattery is not about options. It is about mandates.

Soon racism will be abolished completely. This is because if everything is racist, then nothing is. We are almost there.

Trees Denounced as Racist

A Portland high school has postponed naming a tree as its mascot in light of the revelation that trees are racist:

The Ida B. Wells-Barnett High School’s namesake is the Pulitzer Prize-winning African American journalist who extensively reported on and protested against lynching, reports the Portland Tribune. Originally, the evergreen tree was proposed because, according to Ellen Whatmore, a mascot committee member and a teacher at the school, evergreens “are characterized by the life-giving force of their foliage, the strength of their massive trunk, and the depth of their roots—in an individual tree and as a forest of trees.”

The school used to be named after Woodrow Wilson, but like so many notable figures in American history, Wilson has been canceled for being racist.

The evergreen was the frontrunner out of 420 different nominations, but then Michelle DePass, the director of the Portland Public Schools Board of Education, suggested that the tree’s connotations to lynching could be problematic.

DePass is the only black on the school board, giving her potential veto power over anything she decides to declare racist.

Her concerns resulted in the board postponing the vote on the new mascot until they could reach out to Wells-Barnett’s family to see if they had any issue with it.

Since the family is presumably black, maybe the evergreen has a chance. If they were white, denying DePass’s lived experience as a victim of the hurtful racism of trees would invite accusations that they too are racist.

To avoid future cancelation, you have to be proactive. If you have trees on your property, cut them down at once, even if they are evergreens, which probably were not often used for lynching. If the trajectory of the woke mob’s witch hunt hysteria over the past few years is any indication, getting exposed on social media as an owner of racist trees could soon be a firing offense.

Weaponized Moonbattery: Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County

When it comes time to populate American gulags, leftists will be well prepared. They have been compiling lists of thought criminals of the sort who will need to be liquidated before utopia can be imposed. Already these lists are useful for harassment, intimidation, and cancelation. For example:

A group of current and former teachers and others in Loudoun County, Virginia, compiled a lengthy list of parents suspected of disagreeing with school system actions, including its teaching of controversial racial concepts — with a stated purpose in part to “infiltrate,” use “hackers” to silence parents’ communications, and “expose these people publicly.”

These are not Antifa types, waging jihad against normal people from their unwed mother’s basements. They are members of the liberal establishment. This is a top-down revolution.

Members of a 624-member private Facebook group called “Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County” named parents and plotted fundraising and other offline work. Some used pseudonyms, but The Daily Wire has identified them as a who’s who of the affluent jurisdiction outside D.C., including school staff and elected officials. …

According to the members list, the Facebook group appears to include school board members Denise Corbo, Leslee King, and Ian Sorotkin; commonwealth attorney Buta Bibaraj; county supervisor Juli Briskman; NAACP Loudoun branch president Michelle Thomas; and Gazal Modhera, a lawyer with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Bringing criminal charges against them would probably be a waste of time:

[T]he county’s prosecutor, narrowly elected with the help of $845,000 in cash from George Soros, appears to be a member of the Facebook group.

You don’t have to join the KKK to become a target of leftist search & destroy missions:

Secret communications reviewed by The Daily Wire do not offer any evidence of racism by the group’s targets, or even attempt to. Their opponents were apparently those who objected to, sought to debate, or were even simply “neutral” about “critical race theory,” a radical philosophy opposed by many liberals and conservatives but increasingly embraced by governments.

Critical race theory rests on rabid hatred of whites. It would not be hyperbole to describe its purpose as the destruction of Western Civilization. As radical leftists consolidate control of the Democratic Party, critical race theory is becoming the bedrock of its platform. When apparatchiks in the Biden’s Handlers Administration bark about “equity” and “systemic racism,” they are advancing critical race theory.

Loudoun’s school system has flooded its curricula and policies with racial rhetoric, paying about $500,000 to one racial consulting company alone.

The doctrine they push cannot prevail in open debate, so opposition is suppressed.

The school system proposed, then withdrew, a policy that would ban teachers from disagreeing with the schools’ racial philosophies, even when not on school district property.

Even if they were forced for the time being to back off on this policy, teachers with career ambitions are not advised to say anything publicly that could be perceived as unsupportive of critical race theory.

These Jacobins insist black oppression should be the focus of education. Yet in Loudoun County,

Black residents have a median income of $112,000, and the semi-rural county has precisely zero areas resembling inner cities. Blacks make up only 8% of the population, yet voters chose a black woman to chair the county board of supervisors.

However, actual conditions outside the moonbat narrative have no relevance. Critical race theory is a politically weaponized application of postmodernism. The engineers of this ideology literally do not believe in objective reality.

NAACP: Reparations Payments a “Drop in the Bucket”

No matter how much favoritism and even direct cash payments are bestowed upon blacks to honor them for having increasingly distant ancestors who were oppressed, it will never be enough. Evanston, Illinois, home of Northwestern University, is actually handing people $25,000 of other people’s money on the basis of their revered skin color. The response, as predictable as the sun rising in the east, has been not thanks but a demand for more:

Rev Michael Nabors, who is the president of the Evanston NAACP, thinks $25,000 is a “drop in the bucket.”

“When it’s all said and done, however much money is raised for reparations… will only be a drop in the bucket for the suffering and the oppression that Black people experienced in this nation,” he told Newsweek.

If taxpayers don’t cough up more, another round of Black Lives Matter riots might be required to remind us how oppressed we are required to pretend blacks are.

This is not a recipe for racial harmony. But the black oppression charade was always about power and greed, not harmony.

Anything as counterproductive, wasteful, and morally abhorrent as reparations is likely to be imposed nationally by triumphant Democrats:

Biden supports the creation of a federal commission to study Black reparations called H.R. 40.

What’s a few more $trillion at this point? American currency will soon be worthless anyway.

Racism as a Public Health Crisis

Leftists learned a valuable lesson from the ChiCom virus: people will comply with almost any extreme of tyranny in the name of public health. Bizarrely yet unsurprisingly, they are now framing the implementation of critical race theory as a public health issue.

For example, Virginia passed a resolution declaring political incorrectness to be a public health crisis. WSLS reports:

The resolution states the Virginia Department of Health’s Office of Health Equity will lead the charge on introducing steps to address systemic racism and its impact on public health in Virginia.

Other examples abound. This week, Thurston County, Washington’s Board of Health declared racism to be a public health crisis. The Utah Public Health Association has done the same. According to Denver7,

Around the country, about 180 cities and counties have declared racism a public health emergency, along with seven states.

The New York Times, flagship publication of the liberal establishment, is pushing the strategy of pretending “racism” is a health crisis.

Federal action can’t be far behind. It may be in the next pile of executive orders Biden is told by his handlers to sign.

After it has been established that the campaign to destroy “white supremacy” should be conducted as a health issue, what’s next?

Since they have been able to make us wear masks over coronavirus, maybe accused racists will be forced to wear dunce hats. This was done to those deemed politically incorrect during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, the closest recent historical corollary to what is happening in America today. Maybe they will force racists to “socially isolate” in special camps, where they will be prevented from infecting others with their incorrect thoughts and where they might be rehabilitated through rigorous indoctrination.
