Megan Fox Sends Son to School in Dress

Actress Megan Fox has been milking the media for free publicity by complaining that her 8-year-old son showing up for school wearing a dress has not been received by the other kids with the politically required enthusiastic approval.

Weeps CNN:

Fox, who stars in the new movie “Till Death,” said in a recent interview that her eldest child, whom she shares with her ex-husband Brian Austin Green, has been criticized by “mean, awful and cruel people.”

Barks Fox:

“I send him to a really liberal, hippy school, but even there here in California he still has little boys going, ‘Boys don’t wear dresses,’ or ‘Boys don’t wear pink.’”

It will take more than a few decades of woke social engineering to eradicate every boy’s innate sense of what behavior is acceptable. If Ms Fox doesn’t want her son teased at school, she should stop sending him there in a dress. She is the one making his life miserable, not his schoolmates.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Morrissey

I can’t endorse Morrissey’s music or his wacky views regarding meat consumption, but I will tip my hat reverentially to anyone who has the guts to stand up to moonbattery within the fanatically narrow-minded confines of the entertainment industry. Morrissey has enraged the thought police before, and he is doing it again with a new album entitled Bonfire of Teenagers.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Evokes Disgust With Apology

No one can be woke enough to avoid denunciation by the moonbat mob, not even the guy who made the Founding Fathers black and Hispanic. Lin-Manuel Miranda of Hamilton fame used minority actors to play characters like Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. This is to be encouraged, as pretending that they weren’t white may be the only way to spare the titans of American history from erasure. Now the woke police have attacked Miranda for his casting in another production:

[W]hile most of the cast of “In the Heights” is Latino and one of the leads is African-American, there aren’t many (any?) Afro-Latino actors involved. Thus did a major triumph of minority representation onscreen become an occasion for Miranda to issue the latest groveling, half-sincere apology for being exclusionary.

It isn’t true in the sense that he meant it, but Obama’s wingman Eric Holder was right when he said that America is a “nation of cowards” on the subject of race. Read in horror as Miranda, who may have done more than anyone ever to get more nonwhites on the theater stage, begs forgiveness of a mob of thugs for not doing enough to advance identity politics:

Veteran Puerto Rican entertainer Rita Moreno dared plead with the mob to leave Miranda alone, but then promptly backed down and issued her own sniveling apology.

Have cowards like Miranda, Bob Brenly, Chris Harrison, et al. no self-respect at all? Obsequiously groveling before woke thugs is so disgusting, even other leftists must be getting sick to their stomach. They just don’t have the guts to admit it publicly. The exception to this rule is Bill Maher:

“This is why people hate Democrats,” says Maher. Well, one of the reasons.

You know the country has gone off the rails when Bill Maher sounds like the voice of reason.

Totalitarianism happens when people apologize to bullies instead of telling them to go to hell.

Nickelodeon Pushes LGBT Brainwashing, Ratings Collapse

It is as if the fiends running Nickelodeon expect Satan to rise up from hell at any moment to reward them to the extent of the evil they have done. Their ongoing campaign to corrupt small children with sexually depraved leftist propaganda has gone into overdrive. But those expecting to be rewarded for evil works are often disappointed.

Within the past few weeks, Nickelodious has put forth drag queen Andrew Levitt (stage name Nina West) to promote pansexual families and to teach toddlers to revere the “Progress Pride” flag that ultra-left Interior Secretary Deb Haaland flew on Flag Day. It announced that the children’s cartoon Rugrats will be rebooted, featuring a lesbian single mom. It cast transgender 13-year-old Sasha A. Cohen in the series Danger Force opposite her twin sister Natalie to help undermine children’s understanding of gender.

As for the reward:

It must have come as a surprise to the woke college graduates staffing Nickelodeon that parents dislike the new pedophile-esque edge to the programming, because the cable channel, a Viacom flagship, has seen a 70% drop in its audience in just four years.

Via Pirates and Princes:

Since July of 2017, Nickelodeon’s viewership has dropped from 1.3 million average viewers per week to a June of 2021 average of only 372,000. In only four years, Nickelodeon has dropped more than two thirds of its audience. That is catastrophically bad for the cable channel, but with cable on the way out, maybe it’s not so bad? The catch here is that it is, in fact, that bad and perhaps worse, simply because Nickelodeon seems to be the primary driving force behind new subscribers to Paramount+.

With teachers’ unions using Covid as a pretext to keep schools closed, a kiddie network should have had great ratings over the past year and a half. Not so for Nickelodious. Get woke, go broke.

Drag Queen Teaches Kids the Colors of the Flag

Earlier we saw a cartoon version of drag queen Andrew Levitt (a.k.a. Nina West) sing to preschool children about the glories of homosexual, bisexual, asexual, pansexual, transexual, and nonbinary families. In the video below, Nickelodeon presents rug rats with live action video of Mr Levitt teaching them the meaning of the colors of the flag — not the American flag of course, but the flag saluted by moonbats, i.e., the flag representing the militant LGBT ideology aggressively inculcated into children by the liberal establishment:

LGBT militants have their reasons for targeting innocent children.

Not many parents would let their children watch hardcore pornography. But at least it would be less insidious in its effects than letting them watch Nickelodeon. Porn isn’t explicitly designed to coax children into embracing sexual abnormality.

Could it have been any worse than this in Sodom or Gomorrah? The meteor is overdue.

Children’s Show Promotes Pansexual Families

If what they are doing to the economy doesn’t motivate you to push back against liberals, maybe what they are doing to children will do the job. Yahoo Life effervescently reports on yet another attempt to indoctrinate kids to embrace sexual deviancy:

LGBTQ-inclusive kids’ shows are starting to pop up in preparation for Pride Month in June, and Blue’s Clues is getting in on the action with an adorable song and video featuring a [cartoon] version of Drag Race star, Nina West.

Nina West is the stage name of drag queen Andrew Levitt.

The Blue’s Clues sing-along video showcases families with two moms, two dads, ace, pans, trans, non-binary, and bi parents as they make their way through the parade route, flags flying proudly.

Behold the state of children’s entertainment, as brought into your home by Nickelodeon’s Nick Jr:

For seconds, the kids can watch Little Miss Hot Mess sing “The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish Swish Swish.”

In a sane world, everyone would agree that sex should have nothing to do with children other than creating them. But sex is not for procreation in a society dominated by moonbats. It is for perverting and politicizing. Nothing could be more perverted than exposing kids to leftists’ grotesque sexual ideology.

Those young enough to watch this stuff won’t understand what “nonbinary,” “ace” (asexual), “bi,” “pan,” et cetera mean. Maybe liberal parents are expected to fill in details that for now can’t be televised. Or maybe the idea is to establish positive connotations in the minds of rug rats so they will be eager to study pansexuality when public schools incorporate it into the grade school curriculum.

Disney Goes Full Moonbat

Disney billed itself as the “Happiest Place on Earth.” Now it has opted to become the Wokest Place on Earth. Once seen as quintessentially American, it has plunged headlong into explicitly anti-American ideology.

Christopher Rufo reports:

Disney executives have elevated the ideology of critical race theory into a new corporate dogma—and bombarded employees with trainings on “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “white fragility,” “white saviors,” and launched racially-segregated “affinity groups” at the company’s headquarters.

Anonymous whistleblowers have provided Rufo with documents related to “Reimagine Tomorrow,” a campaign to impose an anti-American and in particular anti-Caucasian ideology on everyone who works for this massively influential corporation.

The core of Disney’s racial program is a series of training modules on “antiracism.” In one module, called “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” the company tells employees that they must “take ownership of educating [themselves] about structural anti-Black racism” and that they should “not rely on [their] Black colleagues to educate [them],” because it is “emotionally taxing.” The United States, the document claims, has a “long history of systemic racism and transphobia” and white employees, in particular, must “work through feelings of guilt, shame, and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed.” Disney recommends that employees atone by “challeng[ing] colorblind ideologies and rhetoric” such as “All Lives Matter” and “I don’t see color”; they must “listen with empathy [to] Black colleagues” and must “not question or debate Black colleagues’ lived experience.”

Believing that people should be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin is something to atone for, according to Disney’s woke overlords.

In another module, employees are instructed that they must reject the concept of equality and embrace equity, just as the federal government has done under Biden’s handlers. This means rejecting individual liberty in favor of the totalitarian control necessary to guarantee that everyone gets what the government believes they deserve according to their identity group.

America is denounced for having a “racist infrastructure.” As we have learned from Biden’s latest looting spree, “infrastructure” means whatever leftists want it to mean. So does the word “racist.”

Disney’s “21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge” program demonizes whites, men, and heterosexuals for the political crime of having “privilege.” The concept of “white fragility” is utilized to ridicule Caucasians who defend themselves. Saying, “I was taught to treat everyone the same” is presented as an example of white fragility. The woke understand that only racists treat everyone the same; antiracists are reverent toward blacks and despise whites.

“Individualism” and “timeliness” are denounced as “white dominant” values that “perpetuate white supremacy culture” and therefore must be rejected.

Employees are encouraged to brainwash their young children with toxic race propaganda, to oppose funding for police, to support Black Lives Matter maniacs, and to “decolonize” their bookshelves — i.e., stop reading books written by white people.

Disney has created racially segregated “affinity groups” for blacks (called Wakanda), Latinos (called Hola), and Asians (called Compass). To suggest that whites might also have an affinity group would probably result in instant termination.

Multiple Disney employees told me the political environment at the company has intensified in recent months. There are “almost daily memos, suggested readings, panels, and seminars that [are] all centered around antiracism,” said one employee. The company is “completely ideologically one-sided” and conservative and Christian employees are actively discouraged from expressing their views.

Gina Carano can tell you what happens to those who express opinions not compliant with leftist ideology.

This fanatical devotion to moonbattery has already affected Disney’s cultural output:

Content managers have modified and added “content advisories” to films such as Dumbo, Aladdin, and Fantasia, which, according to an internal video that I have obtained, executives have denounced as “racist content.” In the same video, Executive Chairman Bob Iger pledged that the company “should be taking a stand” on political controversies and no longer “shy away from politics” in the future.

Anything produced by Disney should be regarded as leftist propaganda. Alarmingly, impressionable children will be the most obvious casualties. However, no one exposed to the mainstream media/entertainment establishment will escape. Disney owns ABC, ESPN, Touchstone Pictures, Marvel, Lucasfilm, Walt Disney Pictures, Hollywood Records, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, 20th Century Studios, and Searchlight Pictures, among other operations in a position to excrete moonbattery directly into the cultural bloodstream.

No matter how powerful Disney is now, it will pay a price for its hostility toward its own audience. Similarly iconic Coca-Cola also recently went whole hog with hard left politics, and has already begun to regret it. America isn’t dead yet. Those who pile dirt on its premature grave will face backlash

Elon Musk to Host Saturday Night Live, Which Hates Him

Elon Musk takes advantage of crony capitalism with subsidized Tesla, but it is becoming impossible to do business any other way. He deserves kudos for proving that you don’t have to be Big Government to reach outer space. Although he has called himself a socialist, he doesn’t seem to mean it. Even a guy who would name his child “X Æ A-12” must be all right if the cast of Saturday Night Live hates his guts:

“Saturday Night Live” cast members won’t be forced to appear alongside controversial billionaire Elon Musk when he hosts the show [on May 8].

His main infraction against political correctness appears to be having created a great deal of wealth. Marxism is the core modern liberalism has been constructed around, so rich people are bad, unless they get rich through socialism like Bernie Sanders — speaking of whom,

Longtime cast member Aidy Bryant … reposted a tweet by Sen. Bernie Sanders that called it a “moral obscenity” that “the 50 wealthiest people in America today own more wealth than the bottom half of our people.”

It doesn’t help that he has donated money to Republicans (as well as to Democrats). Independents like Musks are not allowed. Everyone must be aggressively on the side of leftists.

Musk is so close to straightforward cancelation that even the moral exemplar of our age can get in trouble for being associated with him:

Miley Cyrus has also been blasted for signing up to perform on Musk’s episode after some fans claimed online that he’s “destroying the planet” and doesn’t like women.

No cast members have pulled out of the show over Musk’s appearance yet. Maybe moonbats have discovered the concept of tolerance — probably not though.

Rock Rebels Who Aged Well

Rebelliousness is a common pose in the music world. The real rebels keep rebelling throughout their lives, becoming more mature about it as they figure out what really needs to be rebelled against.

Punk rock was especially rebellious. The whole point of it was to overthrow the stodgy music establishment. The best known punk rocker was John Lydon a.k.a. Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols. Now he rebels against the shallow self-indulgence that characterizes our times by caring full time for his wife, who suffers from advanced Alzheimer’s. He also rebels against the liberal establishment by defending Winston Churchill, who has been slated for cancelation by cancel culture moonbats.

As for the source of the moonbattery, he tells the Times:

“It’s just horribly, horribly tempestuous spoilt children coming out of colleges and universities with s*** for brains. And I put that in the most polite way.”

Lydon became a US citizen in 2013. He rebels against the ruling party:

“You have a Democrat party that doesn’t respect anything but the latest woke fashion trend and that’s to the destruction of America. I’m watching America now collapse because of the Biden nonsense.”

Possibly the most extreme band to come out of the postpunk era was The Birthday Party, fronted by Nick Cave. These days, rather than shrieking and yowling, he rebels by talking sense to moonbattery:

Mercy is a value that should be at the heart of any functioning and tolerant society. Mercy ultimately acknowledges that we are all imperfect and in doing so allows us the oxygen to breathe — to feel protected within a society, through our mutual fallibility. Without mercy a society loses its soul, and devours itself. … Without mercy society grows inflexible, fearful, vindictive and humourless.

Inflexible, fearful, vindictive and humorless sums up political correctness, which Cave calls “the unhappiest religion in the world,” noting that it has the negative aspects of religion but not the positive ones, showcasing “self-righteousness shorn even of the capacity for redemption.”

He regards cancel culture as “mercy’s antithesis”:

Cancel culture’s refusal to engage with uncomfortable ideas has an asphyxiating effect on the creative soul of a society. Compassion is the primary experience — the heart event — out of which emerges the genius and generosity of the imagination. Creativity is an act of love that can knock up against our most foundational beliefs, and in doing so brings forth fresh ways of seeing the world. This is both the function and glory of art and ideas. A force that finds its meaning in the cancellation of these difficult ideas hampers the creative spirit of a society and strikes at the complex and diverse nature of its culture.

That may be why the liberal entertainment establishment produces nothing but soulless garbage. It needs a new generation of rebels — real ones, not the kind who only rebel the way they are told to rebel, for example, by pushing the boundaries of tastelessness.

When Blacks Aren’t Black Enough

Even European countries are subject to the ravages of critical race theory. In Britain, the BBC employs a Diversity Manager named Miranda Wayland. “Diversity,” like “equity” and “antiracism,” is a euphemism for applied critical race theory.

Miranda is so good at finding insufficient diversity that she even denounced the show Luther, which trendily features a black hero. It turns out Luther hangs out with Caucasians and does not eat Caribbean food; therefore, he does not fulfill diversity quotas.

As Sarah Corriher explains in the video below, it is no longer enough to be a Person of Color; only moonbattery-compliant caricatures of a Person of Color are acceptable to the priests and priestesses of political correctness:

She is 100% correct that the objective of separating people into warring tribes with the dehumanizing ideology of critical race theory is to destroy our civilization so that a new authoritarian society can be constructed on its ashes, under the complete control of radical leftists.

Gran Torino Denounced for Anti-Asian Racism

Some laughed at the phoniness of the crisis the media fabricated after last month’s rampage against sex workers in Atlanta, as it twisted itself into knots to dupe the gullible into believing that “white supremacism” poses a threat to Asians. But racism against Asians coming from someone other than blacks did come to light. Surprisingly, it emerged in the wokest sector of society after academia, Hollywood:

Bee Vang, who starred opposite Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino, says the film “mainstreamed anti-Asian racism” in the United States.

Vang says he remains “haunted” by audiences laughing at the racist jokes said by Eastwood’s character in the 2008 film.

Vang knows enough to tell the media what it wants to hear. No doubt earning an approving wink from his agent, Vang whimpers about “the way the film mainstreamed anti-Asian racism, even as it increased Asian American representation. The laughter weaponized against us has beaten us into silent submission”.

What has been weaponized is crybullies’ hurt feelings. Despite having been beaten into silent submission, Vang continues to advance his career by barking divisive moonbattery:

“To this day, I am still haunted by the mirth of white audiences, the uproarious laughter when Eastwood’s curmudgeonly racist character, Walt Kowalski, growled a slur. ‘Gook.’ ‘Slope head’. ‘Eggroll’. It’s a ‘harmless joke’, right? Until it’s not just a joke, but rather one more excuse for ignoring white supremacy and racism.”

Kowalski is a Polish name. Vang is too young to remember the Polack jokes that used to be ubiquitous. Poles took them with good humor and have assimilated seamlessly into American society. No one tells those jokes now.

The point of the movie is that Kowalski overcomes his bigotry to form a bond with an Asian. Vang strategically ignores this, and sneers at the concept of Asians showing “American-ness.”

Enduring bigotry is an unfortunate but inevitable byproduct of lack of assimilation. Assimilation has been rejected in favor of cultural Marxism by the liberal ruling class. This is a major reason that the country is coming apart.

Like most people, Vang didn’t seem to think that the movie was racist at the time it was made. But it is racist now, so if you want to see it again, buy it on DVD before it is erased.

Why They Call It “Tolerance”

They call themselves “progressives” because until recently they imposed their agenda gradually, knowing that the frog will jump out of the pot if you bring the water to a boil too quickly. What is less obvious is why they call their highest value “tolerance,” when they are so rigidly intolerant of those who fail to embrace their ideology with sufficient alacrity. To understand, it helps to put the word “tolerance” in the context of drug addiction.

It is through progressivism and tolerance that they have been able to use Hollywood to desecrate, debase, and destroy American culture.

NBCUniversal Politically Censors Pro Wrestling

In a free country, culture is spontaneous. In America under liberal occupation, everything must retroactively pass through the censors to ensure that it complies with current official orthodoxy before it is deemed fit for the cultural archives. Even professional wrestling needs to be filtered for political correctness:

NBCUniversal is methodically deleting anything it deems “racist” or “risqué” from past WWE wrestling matches for its new Peacock streaming service.

One particular match that the NBC streaming service deleted is from the 1990s WrestleMania VI in which Rowdy Roddy Piper painted half his face black as he faced black wrestler Bad News Brown, according to wrestling site PWInsider.

If Roddy Piper were still with us, he would not need the special glasses he wears in They Live to see that our society is under the domination of malevolent aliens. Piper did say that the movie is actually a documentary.

A portion of Piper’s comments in a prefight interview was also excised. Piper said, “I hear Bad News Brown, how he’s talking about Harlem, and how he’s proud to be from Harlem. Now I can stand here, and I can be black! I can be white! Don’t make no difference to me. … It’s what’s inside.”

This contradicts critical race theory, according to which your racial group is your only meaningful characteristic. Attempts to assert individuality go down the memory hole at NBCUniversal.

According to the New York Post, Peacock is reviewing all 17,000 hours of its WWE catalog to look for “racist” content to delete.

Winston Smith would have no problem finding a job in the USSA. There is no limit to content that must be reviewed for thought crimes. As soon as the censors get through it all, they will have to start over again. Leftist orthodoxy constantly evolves toward ever more ludicrous extremes of rigidity. Positions held by prominent Democrats a decade ago would get people canceled today.

The same sort of censors will soon go through every movie Hollywood produced during its Golden Age.

Here’s a clip that will make the censors’ heads explode.

Cinderella Canceled Because Cast Was Too White

Racial hostility has not been this normalized since the Third Reich. Discrimination against Caucasians, who until as recently as 1990 constituted over 80% of the American population, is becoming ubiquitous.

An example from suburban Minneapolis:

”After careful consideration and with our ongoing commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Chanhassen Dinner Theatres has made the decision to cancel our upcoming production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” the company said in a statement on its website.

The production was nixed because too many of the cast members are white.

The company mulled recasting, but instead chose to ”scrap this and start fresh with a clean slate.”

Don’t worry; it won’t happen again:

The dinner theater has hired a diversity consultant, Kelli Foster Warder, to address theater operations in the future.

We used to laugh at the job prospects of dumb or lazy students who majored in sociology or victim studies instead of studying something constructive. They now constitute our nomenklatura.

How long before the entire output of Hollywood’s Golden Age is erased due to excessively Caucasian casts?

Meanwhile, the gaslighting media shouts that racism works in favor of the whites it is directed against, and oppresses the nonwhites who benefit from it, as if a production could be canceled for including too many blacks.
