Erasure of Donald Trump Is Underway

Donald Trump needn’t worry about the bad press he has gotten from the liberal media. None of it will be remembered. Trump himself won’t be remembered, because he will be erased as surely as Confederate generals (and the Founding Fathers behind them). The process is already underway:

New York State Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal introduced legislation Wednesday to change the name of Donald J. Trump State Park, which straddles Westchester and Putnam Counties.

The park was named after Trump for good reason:

The park was established in 2006 when former President Donald Trump donated 436 acres of land to the state.

However, Trump’s name anywhere cannot be tolerated because tolerance:

“New York State has always been known for its history of welcoming and embracing people of all cultures and backgrounds. Even our park system reflects these values,” wrote lawmakers in the bill. “The names of these parks and green spaces should embody the goals of uplifting, and unifying New Yorkers.”

Except for the millions of New Yorkers who disagree with Democrats.

Maybe Trump wouldn’t want his name on this park anyway:

Maintenance at the park was suspended in 2010 due to budget cuts. Since then, the park has remained in a state of disrepair.

As the state decays, New York’s Democrat rulers will shower $10 billion upon illegal aliens in 2023.

Democrats offer totalitarian intolerance, petty vindictiveness, surreal extremes of hypocrisy, and dysfunctional mismanagement. This story showcases all four traits.

Girls’ Team Banned for Not Playing Against Team With Boy

Liberals shriek that we must let men play on women’s sports teams because “tolerance.” Here’s what they mean by tolerance:

The Vermont Principals’ Association, which oversees school athletics, said Monday afternoon that Mid Vermont Christian School in Quechee will no longer be eligible to participate in sports and other sponsored activities.

This draconian punishment was inflicted because the private Christian school forfeited a girls’ basketball game rather than play against a team that reduced the concept of girls’ sports to farce by having a boy on it.

Mid Vermont violated the organization’s anti-discrimination and gender identity policies, the organization told the school in a letter of ineligibility. Those policies allow athletes to play on the team that is “consistent with their gender identity” and prohibit discrimination “based on a student’s actual or perceived sex and gender.”

Leaving aside the blasphemous aspect of transsexualism, Mid Vermont Christian had good reason to refuse to play Long Trail School:

Mid Vermont Christian’s head of school, Vicky Fogg, said in a statement last month that the school believed “playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players.”

However, if our woke overlords gave a flying damn about women’s safety, they would not impose their ideology by placing men in women’s prisons.

Jay Nichols, the executive director of the Vermont Principals’ Association, said the organization’s 15-member executive board was unanimous in its decision.

Everything is to be unanimous in liberal utopia. The fate of Mid Vermont Christian illustrates what happens to those who don’t go along.

Nichols said he could not remember any prior instances of a school being barred from sporting events. There is no existing appeals process, he said.

Again we see that the word “tolerance” means zero tolerance for anyone who resists the grotesque leftist agenda.

Phoenix School Board Will Not Tolerate Christian Values

Driven by the intolerance they piously denounce, progressives are using their control of schools to purge education of Christians, whom they hate with satanic intensity. In Phoenix, the Washington Elementary School District refused to renew a Student Teacher Placement agreement with Arizona Christian University, explicitly out of hostility toward Christian values:

Under the agreement, student teachers [were] able to get educational experience at WESD schools, which may qualify for ACU academic credit. For the school district, the partnership also helped alleviate a growing teacher shortage.

Never mind the teacher shortage, social engineers do not want Christians to have access to children, on the grounds that they might fail to groom them on behalf of the agenda.

The board members, three of whom identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community, said that having student teachers with biblical values in the state’s largest elementary school district is too dangerous.

“[The] institution has policies that are openly bigoted, and I will not sit here as a member of the community and let our children be subjected to that,” said [Tamillia] Valenzuela.

By “bigoted,” she means, “virtuous.”

According to ACU’s Student Handbook for the 2021-2022 school year, the school states that it believes “God has ordained and created marriage to exist between one man and one woman, with absolute marital fidelity.”

Until a few years ago, hardly anyone would have had a problem with that. Now that iniquity has attained the upper hand via leftist politics, it is regarded as thoughtcrime and will not be tolerated by our degenerate overlords.

Brace yourself for a blast of trademark liberal hypocrisy:

“Adults are perpetuating bullying. They are perpetuating hatred,” said board member Tamillia Valenzuela.

Now brace yourself to meet hate-fueled bully Tamillia Valenzuela:

The Founding Father of Leftism under whom the concentration camp was invented reminds us what it means that people like Tamillia Valenzuela control the schools:

Gretchen Felker-Martin and J.K. Rowling’s Throat

When moonbats bark about the need for tolerance, they mean intolerance of “intolerance,” as in Frankfurt Schooler Herbert Marcuse’s infamous essay “Repressive Tolerance.” They mean this:

A renowned transgender horror author who signed a letter last week condemning The New York Times’s coverage of trans issues has tweeted that she wants to slit J.K. Rowling’s throat.

Even the New York Times has fallen behind as leftism plunges headlong into utter insanity.

Gretchen Felker-Martin named a series of writers she accused of transphobia – including Rowling – in a tweet sent on February 12. She added: ‘If they all had one throat, man.’ …

In Felker-Martin’s debut novel, Manhunt, published in February 2022, Rowling is murdered by being burned alive.

The book is promoted as ‘an explosive post-apocalyptic novel that follows trans women and trans men on a grotesque journey of survival.’ It has been lauded as ‘visceral’ ‘gripping’ and ‘brilliant’ by NPR and the New Yorker.

Grotesque is probably putting it mildly. The book does sound like something NPR and the New Yorker would want people reading.

Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling is a lefty in other respects, but she refuses to comply with the transsexual demand that the concept of womanhood be abolished. Like all reasonable people, she does not think men pretending to be women belong in women’s prisons, on women’s sports teams, et cetera.

Consequently, she is a pariah who must be castigated for her thoughtcrime. It is no longer possible to be 99% liberal. Compliance with the current dictates of political correctness must be absolute. The New York Times had better get with the program on trans radicalism if doesn’t want to be left behind and get canceled.

“Gretchen” is one scary freak.

Catholic Student Excluded for Thoughtcrime

The FBI has been spying on “Radical Traditionalist Catholics,” who are deemed by Democrats to be a threat to security. If only he were American, the Mark Houck treatment could be applied to Josh Alexander:

An Ontario high school student is not allowed to attend his Catholic school for the remainder of the year because he expressed the belief that God created only two sexes, with the school arguing that his presence would be “detrimental to the physical and mental well-being” of transgender students.

He must have been reading subversive literature, like Genesis 1:27, Genesis 5:2, or Matthew 19:4, all of which state plainly that God created us male and female.

Josh Alexander, 16, has not been permitted to attend St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Renfrew, Ontario since last November when he organized a protest in support of the right of female students to have single-sex washrooms after two girls had confided in him that they were uncomfortable sharing spaces with trans-identified male students.

In our benighted past, defending girls from having their private spaces invaded by male perverts would have been encouraged and admired. Those unwoke times will be erased.

Alexander had also expressed his belief that there are only two immutable sexes during a law class discussion, saying that he felt that males belong in male washrooms and females belong in female washrooms because identity doesn’t change biology.

This assertion of objective fact was denounced as “offensive” and “bullying.”

If a Catholic school won’t allow Christianity, why would it allow biology? Only one viewpoint is permitted where moonbats prevail: moonbattery.

First, the Grade 11 student was suspended, but then following the end of his suspension, the principal made the decision to “exclude” him for the remainder of the year. The two amount to the same thing, but an exclusion is not technically disciplinary.

Exclusion is what liberals mean when they bark about “inclusion.”

An advantage of excluding Alexander instead of extending his suspension is that it helps educrats pretend that they are not punishing him for his conventional beliefs, but rather protecting sacred transsexuals from having their feelings hurt by exposure to a practicing Christian.

While he is excluded, Alexander cannot attend any school, since he is enrolled at the “Catholic” school. At this point in the decline of education, that might be for the best.

FBI Targets Traditional Catholics

No wonder the KGB I mean FBI is getting a new HQ twice the size of the Pentagon. It takes a big agency to monitor the many Americans who are Threats to Democracy — like traditional Catholics:

A document released by an FBI whistleblower indicates the agency plans to intensify its “assessment” and “mitigation” of “Radical Traditionalist Catholics” over the next 12 to 24 months due to alleged concerns that “white nationalists” are increasingly making common cause online with attendees of the Latin Mass.

A “white nationalist” can be defined as anyone with pale skin leftists don’t like.

The report alleges that its real motivation is a concern that “Radical Traditionalist Catholic Ideology” possesses an “anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT, and white supremacy” outlook, and that this presents a threat to the US’s domestic well-being.

Let’s not forget Islamophobic. The report expresses alarm that Catholics have made “crusader references.” According to progressives, the selfless heroes of the Crusades were the bad guys because they attempted to defend Christians in the Holy Lands from Muslim conquerors.

The emphasis on targeting Americans for their religious beliefs may help uncover more public enemies like Mark Houck. Why wait for them to get in an altercation with a moonbat before sending in a SWAT team to terrorize them for their incorrect views?

Among the most controversial aspects of the memo is that it directly cites a defamatory study conducted by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on the subject “Radical Traditional Catholicism.” The SPLC has long been rejected as a legitimate resource for the FBI, Seraphin says, but in this instance, it is being relied on as a primary source to justify its efforts. The memo also references three anti-Catholic smear articles (here, here, and here) published by leftwing websites Salon and The Atlantic to defend its monitoring.

The SPLC is a hard left hate group that pushes malicious moonbattery to the point of self-parody and beyond. For example, it has denounced the milquetoast-mannered Ben Carson as an “extremist” and has tried to cancel Dr Seuss. It accuses the blog Jihad Watch — which exists to keep an eye on actual violent extremists — of “violent extremism.” According to the SPLC, hate is not hate if you hate people you are supposed to hate, namely Caucasians.

The SPLC directly inspired gay rights terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins to shoot up the offices of the Family Research Council. But doesn’t need misfit maniacs like Corkins anymore.

In our unfolding police state, the SPLC will provide the brains; the FBI will provide the muscle.

Asking People if They Speak English Is a Microaggression

Living in a woke society, it is a challenge to avoid committing microaggressions. Because new ones are invented each day by social engineers, constant attention must be devoted to staying on top of them, lest you inadvertently commit thoughtcrime. Now we learn that asking someone if they speak English is a microaggression:

According to documents obtained by the medical watchdog group Do No Harm and shared with the Washington Examiner, Covenant Medical Center in Texas required its employees to complete an implicit bias training [i.e., cultural Marxist brainwashing] that contained a list of microaggressions worthy of an apology, including asking if someone spoke English and asking to speak to a manager.

Regarding speaking to the manager, it should go without saying that bad service is to be expected, now that hiring and promotion are based on identity politics rather than merit. Failure to embrace this would be racist. However, this directive applies to patients, not employees. They should put up signs in the waiting room.

For once, the thought police offer a path to redemption for those who realize they have committed a microaggression:

The first steps listed are acknowledging a harm was committed and offering to “repair the issue.” To complete the apology, one must “repent for the problem” and “request forgiveness.”

Falling to your knees and groveling couldn’t hurt.

Ayn Rand explains why there are so many microaggressions:

The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.

Only when we are all thought criminals will our liberal overlords have the leverage to perfect utopia. Making thoughtcrime a federal offense will help in this regard by allowing more involvement by the FBI.

Covenant Medical Center is part of the West Coast-based Providence Health and Services system…

The healthcare system says it prioritizes diversity in hiring and promotion decisions and has a “zero-tolerance” policy for “behavior that perpetuates bias or stereotypes.” The system also says it is committed to “health equity” and acknowledges “long-standing inequities have led to health disparities.”

Rather than worrying about microaggressions, it would be wise to find a healthcare system that prioritizes patients’ health over punishing or rewarding them for their race.

NHL Backs Down to DeSantis, Allows Regular Americans

It’s too late for resistance. The only thing that can save the country now is aggressive pushback. Once again, Ron DeSantis shows the way by putting the kibosh on the latest attempt by Big Sports to marginalize everyone except those lucky enough to be “marginalized.”

The NHL is planning a job fair:

The event, titled “Pathway to Hockey Summit” is scheduled for on Feb. 2 during the 2023 All Star Festivities in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and seeks to help “diverse job seekers who are pursuing careers in hockey.”

According to the event description:

“Participants must be 18 years of age or older, based in the U.S., and identify as female, Black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, Indigenous, LGBTQIA+, and/or a person with a disability.”

In a gesture of open-mindedness, veterans would be allowed. Otherwise, the sexually normal able-bodied white guys who typify hockey’s fan base were invited to stay out. Inclusion means you are excluded, unless you belong to an identity group courted by Democrats.

However, liberal intolerance no longer flies in Florida.

DeSantis press secretary Bryan Griffin:

“Discrimination of any sort is not welcome in the state of Florida, and we do not abide by the woke notion that discrimination should be overlooked if applied in a politically popular manner or against a politically unpopular demographic. We are fighting all discrimination in our schools and our workplaces, and we will fight it in publicly accessible places of meeting or activity.”

Griffin called upon the woke weenies running the NHL to “immediately remove and denounce the discriminatory prohibitions it has imposed on attendance to the 2023 ‘Pathway to Hockey’ summit.”

The NHL deleted the original LinkedIn posting and now says the event is open to everyone.

Score another win for DeSantis on America’s behalf.

Pentagon Prioritizes Erasing Southerners

The reason the USA was able to reunite and become cohesive after the Civil War is that the North had enough grace to respect and honor the vanquished. The leftists now running the federal government have no such grace:

The Department of Defense said last week that Pentagon officials began working on renaming military infrastructure tied to the Confederate States of America by the start of 2024.

Officials announced plans to rename nine U.S. Army bases, two U.S. Navy ships, and more than 1,000 items on American military installations.

Barks Pentagon spokesperson Brigadier General Pat Ryder:

“I think we are confident, you know, each of the services has clear instructions in terms of what it is that they need to focus on…”

Yes, under the direction of leftists like Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, and Commander in Chief Joe Biden, each of the services is well aware of what to focus on: promoting moonbattery. Meanwhile, our communist Chinese adversaries build and plot and laugh.

How much will this exercise in militantly intolerant political correctness cost the taxpayer?

Ryder did not disclose the total cost of the project. However, the Naming Commission’s final report calculated the amount to be approximately $62.5 million.

The national debt is well over $31 TRILLION and rocketing upward. Reckless government spending is holding inflation above 7%. But the Biden Regime has priorities that take precedence over our economic well-being, like defeating the Confederate States of America, which ceased to exist 158 years ago.

If Southerners had expected that they would be contemptuously erased from history, their highly developed sense of honor might have prevented them from surrendering in their quest for independence. Fighting a guerrilla campaign to the last man would have been preferable.

Christmas Cheer From a Woke Progressive

Because leftist grinches have not yet extirpated Christmas, the war on it continues. Earlier this month, Dedham, Massachusetts (pop. 25,492) librarian Lisa Desmond posted:

I found out today that my beautiful library will not have it’s Christmas tree this year. Zero explanation. When I asked, I was told “people “ were made uncomfortable last year looking at it. I’m sorry WHAT? In my 28 years at the Dedham Public Library, I have never heard a negative comment.

It only takes one squeaky wheel to get traditions greased.

The librarian’s lament drew a response from aptly named Dedham Human Rights Committee member Diane Loud, which read in part (asterisks added):

Lisa Desmond: F**K YOU. You knew what you were doing. You spent days batting aside the people who asked you to ratchet this back. “Everyone will tell you I’m the most inclusive person ever!” Everyone will tell me that you are a selfish f**king b**** who does not care about anyone but herself. For a tree? For a motherf***ing TREE? You have put people’s lives in a lot of danger. A LOT of danger. For a motherf***ing Christmas tree…

Anything liberals associate with Christianity puts lives in danger by threatening the very existence of LGBT people, according to their dogma.

I hope this is worth it. All. I hope the fact that you— who claim to believe in Christ and Christmas or whatever happy horsesh*t you’re trying to hide behind— are the least gracious, most hateful, most disgusting trash in the world. Is this what you think your magic sky daddy wants? Where in the Bible was this again?

In closing I would like to add a final round of F**K YOU, YOU PIECES OF TRASH. I hate each and every one of you and I do wish great suffering on you. You are terrible, terrible people.

Bad as things have gotten under the uniting hand of Joe Biden, this was considered over the top even in liberal Massachusetts. Ms Loud appears to be off the Dedham Human Rights Committee, and the Dedham Library reversed its Christmas tree ban — for now:

Moving forward, we will continue to review decorations and displays to ensure they are welcoming, enriching, and reflective of our entire community.

To the extent “hate” does not mean “resistance to leftism,” progressives are right to denounce it. But as always, they are projecting. Their ideology consists of sophomoric propaganda constructed upon a foundation of tribalistic hatred. This hatred is directed at those they have designated as enemies, prominently including Christians. Thanks go to Ms Loud for reminding us to hate the moonbattery but not the moonbat. We don’t want to degenerate into festering viciousness, as her example reminds us.

Democrats Frame Dissent as Security Issue

Among the most alarming aspects of today’s radicalized Democratic Party is the framing of political dissent as a security issue:

In a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin issued on Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced portentously that “the United States remains in a heightened threat environment.” It seems that “lone offenders and small groups motivated by a range of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances continue to pose a persistent and lethal threat to the Homeland.” Yet while the DHS claims to be tracking terror threats from people with a “range of ideological beliefs,” it is especially concerned “threat actors could exploit several upcoming events to justify or commit acts of violence, including certifications related to the midterm elections” and “the marking of two years since the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.” …

DHS warned that “targets of potential violence” include “the LGBTQI+ community” and “racial and religious minorities,” as well as “government facilities and personnel” and “perceived ideological opponents.” Clearly these “terrorism experts” have in mind the Leftist stereotype of someone who rejects the dominant Leftist ideology…

The legitimate threat of Islamic terrorism is almost completely ignored. The nearly 80,000 Afghan evacuees the Biden Regime imported after surrendering to the Taliban are not even mentioned.

Meanwhile, the agency plans to release Afghan Muslim criminals into the U.S.

Nor is there any mention of the left-wing terrorist groups Black Lives Matter and Antifa, despite their involvement in hundreds of riots in the past few years.

The bottom line:

The ultimate goal is to criminalize political dissent.

The Rot Reaches Owosso, Michigan

You can take refuge from moonbattery in wholesome small towns. But it won’t last forever. Cancer metastasizes, as Emily Olson has demonstrated by moving to Owosso, Michigan and infiltrating the City Council:

Two weeks ago, in her first meeting as a member of the City Council, Olson called for an end to the opening prayer at council meetings, something she knew would be unpopular with her colleagues and many of the nearly 15,000 residents in this traditionally conservative city, the birthplace of former Republican presidential nominee Thomas E. Dewey.

She also remained seated during the Pledge of Allegiance in protest of its reference to God and the mixing of religion and government.

Only one religion is to be allowed within government: moonbattery.

For now, Owosso’s defenses are holding:

Council members voted 5-2 against Olson’s motion to remove the prayer from future agendas at its meeting on Nov. 21, and Mayor Robert J. Teich Jr. took things further, saying the vote settled the prayer issue and that he would rule any future council attempts to revisit it as out of order.

Give her time. Rome wasn’t destroyed in a day. Olson moved to Owosso from across the country only 2 years ago.

She purchased a building in the city’s West Town Historic District, started a vintage shop that also offers hand-made items, formed a group for progressive women called Fair Mavens, and won a seat on the council — all since 2021.

Olson was drawn to what she describes as a “charming little town.” Leftists like herself have not yet managed to corrupt, degrade, and destroy it. Former Shiawassee County Commissioner Barb Clatterbaugh describes it as “a Norman Rockwell setting” and “a small town in the Midwest” that “reflects traditional values.”

Those values must be eradicated before Owosso can be reduced to a moonbat hellhole of the type where Democrats win every election.

Olson barks that forbidding prayer will make City Council meetings “more inclusive.” By now, we know what “inclusive” means.

“This is a Christian city,” observes council member Daniel Law. “The hard, cold reality of it is, removing (prayer) is exclusionary to Christians.”

A Christian city for now, that is.

Mass General Brigham Speech Code for Patients

Leftists have subverted medical education (see here, here, and here). Before long, this will have devastating effects on our health, as qualifications are abandoned in favor of identity box checking and training is dumbed down accordingly. The effects of moonbats having taken over the administration of hospitals will be more immediate:

“Words or actions that are disrespectful, racist, discriminatory, hostile, or harassing are not welcome” at Mass General Brigham (MGB), according to a “Patient Code of Conduct” imposed this fall after a year of development.

MGB includes the highly prestigious and therefore influential Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.

The Patient Code of Conduct is a speech code. It applies to patients, families, visitors, and research participants.

The code covers … “offensive comments about others’ race, accent, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or other personal traits” or refusal to see staff based on those traits.

As for those who violate the speech code,

MGB warns that it may ask them to “make other plans for their care” in response to some violations. They might also be banned from “future non-emergency care.”

No minimum number of violations is given, nor is it explained who determines when thoughtcrime has been committed.

Failure to use preferred pronouns could constitute “harassment,” disputing the existence of systemic racism could be deemed “racist,” and favoring equal access to care over equity could be labeled “discriminatory,” according to Do No Harm.

That medical care would be provided on a racial basis is a legitimate concern:

Do No Harm noted that one of MGB’s founding members and Harvard Med’s training hospital, Brigham and Women’s, launched a pilot last year that explicitly granted “preferential care based on race” to redress past wrongs, even while acknowledging it might be illegal.

It won’t be illegal for long if Democrats have their way.

Antiwhite racism appears to be rampant at MGB, as noted at Behind the Black:

MGB’s website shows it to be totally invested in the agendas of critical race theory as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion. The top of its About page includes a link to a description of its “Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion,” which describes in careful terms the quota policies the hospital now follows, designed to choose minorities in hiring rather than those with better medical qualifications.

Modern liberalism is pernicious and insane. It can only be imposed by force. The regulation of all speech everywhere is as inevitable as the confiscation of firearms if progressives are not pried away from power.

Already, getting canceled by militantly tolerant liberals for saying something that contradicts their ideology can cost you employment. Soon it may cost you your health.
