The World’s a Dangerous Place

The apparent murder of Sarah Everard, a 33-year-old London woman, has provided moonbats with a pretext to indulge in sexist bigotry directed at the male gender. Jennifer Helen Jones (aka Baroness Jones) of the Green Party even declared before the House of Lords that there should be a 6 pm curfew for all men.

Countermoonbats are likely to take the tragedy as confirmation that law-abiding citizens must be allowed to defend themselves with firearms or at the very least pepper spray, particularly in a world where law and order are in decline due to liberal policies and general moral decay.

Paul Joseph Watson reports from the UK:

A Metropolitan Police officer has been arrested for Sarah Everard’s murder. This emphasizes that self-defense is a fundamental right that cannot be denied at an individual level, no matter how vehemently progressives oppose the concept of individual rights.

Pepe le Pew Gets Canceled

They came for Dr Seuss. Now they are coming for Pepe le Pew:

The scariest thing about leftist blowhards like Blow is that, having no sense of humor, they lose all critical perspective. Anyone deranged enough to regard Pepe le Pew cartoons as a promotion of rape culture is deranged enough to impose a culture no reasonable person would want to live in.

As noted at Not the Bee,

When you bring an adult’s eye to a cartoon, and all the baggage and damage and neuroses that come with it, you will come away with a perspective that bears no resemblance to how it is perceived by a child.

If progressives had any respect for the innocence of children, they wouldn’t push them to become transsexual. They see children as pawns, whose cluelessness can be exploited to advance the leftist agenda. Ironically, Charles Blow’s employers at the New York Times probably see him the same way.

Former Redskins Drop Cheerleaders

Once you start giving in to the moonbat mob, too much compliance is never enough. The Washington Redskins wimped out and changed their supposedly offensive name to the Washington Football Team, because inclusivity requires the exclusion of references to Indians. Not enough. Now they are getting rid of cheerleaders, no doubt because feminazis consider them sexist. Instead, they will offer an unappealing but politically correct “coed dance squad”:

Petra Pope, the club’s newly hired senior adviser, told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday that the new dance squad looks to become more modern and diverse…

Pope says the dance squad will emphasize “inclusivity.” Presumably whites can still apply though.

The Redskins Football Team was recently in hot water after employees allegedly created videos of calendar shoot outtakes featuring cheerleaders who were not fully clothed. A settlement was paid.

Comments Not the Bee,

Pope also said that the future dance squad will not participate in calendar photo shoots. At least we have that to be grateful for.

If there is still any reason to sit through football games, the NFL will find and eliminate it in the name of woke politics.

Petra Pope promises a “different vibe.”

USA Today: Riot Caused by White Male Supremacy

The Capitol Riot was a catastrophe for the Right, associating it with maniacs in the public mind and providing Big Tech and the Democrat Party with a pretext to crack down on free speech. But it was hard on moonbats too, as USA Today whimpers:

It wasn’t just masculinity, or entitlement, or supremacy. It was all of it that made the Capitol attack possible and often allows us to overlook the quieter attacks on our everyday lives, said Kristen Barber, a sociology professor at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, and editor of the journal Men and Masculinities.

“Watching these images are triggering for people who experience the everyday violence of white male supremacy, whether that’s Black men who are patrolled by white police officers on the street or women who feel threatened by white men in their spaces on a daily basis,” Barber said. “It’s a reminder of the everyday stresses that come with living in a world that’s shaped by white masculinity …”

In contrast, the literally hundreds of Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots that took place over the past year, costing $billions and destroying innumerable lives, were not caused by white male supremacy, which must be why the liberal establishment generously supported them.

Experts say demonstrations of white masculinity have mental health impacts on everyone, but especially women, and can create stress, anxiety and trauma.

Blacks commit rape at a far higher rate than whites. Yet black masculinity is not a problem, because blacks are not required by liberal ideology to be effete Robert Francis O’Rourke types.

Symptoms of having been triggered by white masculinity can be severe. Reports Texas Woman’s University psychology professor Debra Mollen:

“After the riot, one of my former students told me she couldn’t get out of bed. I’ve heard lots of accounts of women I know who have been uncontrollably crying. I’ve read several accounts of people who vomited, they were so upset and distressed by what they were witnessing.”

It is unclear whether any snowflakes were traumatized by the white femininity of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot to death by Capitol Police during the riot.

If all you have is a hammer, every problem is a nail. All some moonbats have is their precious victimhood and their hatred of white men.

Amen and A-Woman

Political correctness has reached the last extreme of absurdity in Congress. Democrat Representative and ordained United Methodist pastor Emanuel Cleaver delivered the opening prayer on Sunday to start the new session. Instead of the traditional “amen,” Cleaver ended it with the more inclusive “amen and a-woman.”

Seeing is believing:

“Amen” is Latin for “so be it.” Gender has nothing to do with it. But if “history” can be deformed into “herstory,” why can’t “amen” become “awoman”? Since moonbattery is a totalitarian ideology, it applies to everything, including all words.

Good thing Cleaver pulled this before today, when new House rules presented by Nancy Pelosi are to be voted on. All gender-specific language has been stripped out, including “man” and “woman.” Because inclusion.

Transsexuals, Lesbians at Each Other’s Throats

The Cultural Marxist alliance is like a wrecking ball: only good for demolition, useless for building anything. Civilization is still partially standing, but already favored identity groups are at each other’s throats, prominently including lesbians and guys who say they are girls.

The Telegraph reports:

Lesbian are facing “extinction” because of the “disproportionate” focus on transgenderism in schools, a controversial campaign group for gay rights has claimed.

The LGB Alliance, which has been branded a “trans hate group” by Pink News and other vocal critics, was set up in October 2019 amid concerns that Stonewall, the UK’s leading gay rights charity, had become too fixated on gender identity.

Its founders, Kate Harris and Bev Jackson, claim to have been “cancelled” for questioning gender identity theory and airing their concerns about the erosion of women’s rights in the face of the transgender movement.

According to transgender militants, there is no concrete difference between men and women. You are whichever you say you are, or rather, you are wherever you say you are on an imaginary spectrum between them.

This dogma renders the term “lesbian” virtually meaningless, as it does the term “female.” Feminist who resist being redefined out of existence are denounced as TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists).

LGB Alliance’s Just Giving and Go Fund Me pages were taken down after homosexual Scottish National Party Member of Parliament John Nicolson proclaimed it to be “transphobic.”

So far, the more aggressive transsexuals have the whip hand, characteristically demanding obeisance and canceling those who refuse to kneel. But some feminists are pushing back. If this breaks into a shooting war, we should arm both sides.

Moonbattery Applied to American Womanhood

Maybe we should have gone out in a blaze of glory by having a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. At least it would have been over with quickly, and it would have spared us the degradation of watching moonbattery rot our country to death.

Behold American womanhood under the influence of moonbattery. Sorry about the characteristic obscenity:

Paris Authorities Fined for Not Hiring Enough Men

“Equality” is often used to euphemize identity politics favoritism. This becomes problematic when people take the concept too literally. Business Insider provides an example:

Paris authorities on Tuesday were fined $110,000 for employing too many women in senior positions in 2018.

The authorities put 11 women and five men in senior positions in 2018, meaning that nearly 70% of the appointments went to women. This breached a national law on gender parity.

The “Sauvadet law,” repealed in 2019, said no more than 60% of appointments at senior levels should go to one gender.

Mayor Anne Hidalgo has denounced the fine as absurd and unfair, not because people should be appointed based on more meaningful qualifications than gender, but because too much discrimination against men is still not enough.

Barks Hidalgo:

“We must promote women with determination and vigor because the gap everywhere in France is still very large. So yes, in order to achieve parity one day, it is necessary to speed up the tempo and make sure that in the nominations there are more women than men.”

Gender parity will not be achieved until all positions are held by women, just as racial parity will not be achieved until all positions are held by nonwhites.

Feminist Hotel Features RBG Portrait Made Out of Tampons

Every aspect of society has become saturated with belligerent wokeness. Yet immersion in moonbattery could become more suffocating still. Progressives will not rest until the whole country is as centered on their ideology as Hotel Zena, which caters noisily to angry feminists — or as Architectural Digest put it last week, “celebrates female empowerment”:

When it opens this week, the new Hotel Zena in Washington, D.C., will make a powerful statement about powerful women. The groundbreaking hotel, part of the Viceroy Hotels & Resorts, has commissioned more than 60 works of art that celebrate female empowerment. Even before they step inside, guests will be greeted by colorful, seven-story-tall murals on the building’s façade, depicting enormous female warriors who keep watch over the hotel and its surrounding Logan Circle neighborhood.

The female warriors are racially and culturally correct:

“Zena” must come from “Xena the Warrior Princess.”

In the hotel lobby, a dramatic portrait gallery honors 11 women who’ve led the fight for gender equality, including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Rep. Shirley Chisholm—the first Black woman elected to Congress.

Other featured fanatics include teenage envirofascist Greta Thunberg and zillionaire oppressed person Oprah Winfrey. Even the cocktails served in the hotel bar are named after feminists.

The RBG portrait was created out of 20,000 hand-painted tampons. Seriously:

It’s as if they think self-ridicule is a club that they can use to bash everyone into submission.
