Reza Aslan Wants to Eradicate All Trump Supporters

UC Riverside professor and former CNN host Reza Aslan, best known for indulging in cannibalism on television, must be disappointed that Tinseltown is holding off on releasing The Hunt. A movie about shooting deplorables would be right up his alley. He recently called for all Trump supporters to be “eradicated from society.”

To quote Aslan:

After [El Paso] there is no longer any room for nuance. The President is a white nationalist terror leader. His supporters – ALL OF THEM – are by definition white nationalist terror supporters. The MAGA hat is a KKK hood. And this evil, racist scourge must be eradicated from society.

How will he eradicate all white nationalists, considering that they comprise close to half the population? Maybe every resident of the USA should be called forward one by one to denounce their president; anyone who won’t do it gets a bullet in the head. But how can you know that they aren’t white nationalists in their hearts even if they mouth the required declarations? The problem has vexed totalitarians from the French Revolution, through Soviet Russia and China under Mao, right up to present day “liberals” like Reza Aslan.

Paul Joseph Watson on El Paso and Dayton

Liberal propagandists rushed to claim the moral high ground following the El Paso shooting. But if Trump is in any way complicit in El Paso, Elizabeth Warren is complicit in the Dayton shooting that immediately followed.

The Left is becoming increasingly intolerant. This will inevitably drive violent extremism on both sides.

A Mirror and a Window

Trump’s Twitter attacks send faces into palms on both sides of the aisle. However, Jason Siler points out that he is only a mirror for Democrats, casting back the ugliness they show him:

What if Trump supporters turn this around by showing a friendly face toward leftists? Would that be reflected too? Maybe not:

YouTubers Saleem Juma and Dion Thompson were egged and milkshaked in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle last week while wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats, and holding a sign that read, “Free Hugs from a Trump Supporter.”

Here’s video:

This isn’t a mirror. This is a window onto the implacable malevolence of moonbats.

Antifa has designated Juma and Thompson, neither of whom is Caucasian, as “white supremacists,” confirming that this term means nothing more than “hated by leftists.” The two were speaking at the University of Washington last month when someone tried to chain the door shut after some egging on from Antifa. The culprit was then let go by prosecutors.

Countermoonbattery Costs Kathy Zhu Beauty Crown

All must kiss the ring of political correctness or face destruction. That’s why Miss World America has stripped Kathy Zhu of her crown:

Zhu is a Chinese immigrant who moved to the United States at age five; she became popular in conservative circles for both her support for Donald Trump during the 2016 election and for fighting off students attempting to get her expelled from the University of Central Florida for refusing to try on a hijab — an event that allegedly helped get the conservative stripped of her beauty pageant accomplishments.

According to Newsweek, Zhu was named as an Indiana and Michigan 2019 national finalist earlier this week in a bid to move on to the Miss Teen World America preliminary and finals set for October.

She had her sash and crown rescinded for having refused to don the hijab, for tweeting about black on black violence, and for allegedly insensitive statistical tweets — i.e., for referencing facts that liberals would prefer to leave unacknowledged.

Miss World America Michigan State Director Laurie DeJack singled out the following as an intolerable thought crime. Zhu had tweeted:

“Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”

Did you ever think you would live in an America where people are not permitted to state facts and express commonsense reactions to them? How about an America where women are punished for refusing to wear a hijab?

This is how consensus is achieved. It is made clear that whatever it is that you want, you won’t get it if you are considered to be ideologically intransigent. Zhu’s dreams have been dashed because she failed to conform. Weaker women will get the prize by toeing the line.

Cowardice and the Culture War

Moonbats are winning the Culture War in a rout. It is a total war: a war of absolute extirpation. Daniel Henninger notes how easily leftist radicals were able to banish the Betsy Ross Flag, Chief Wahoo, and “God Bless America.”

Most Americans love their country and do not want to see it erased. So why is this happening? Cowardice is why:

No one has ever thought to go looking inside corporate headquarters for profiles in courage, but the lurch toward timidity in our time by individuals at the top of America’s private and public institutions is something to behold. Pusillanimity has become a plague.

Nike was only too glad to fold to Colin Kaepernick’s demands regarding the Betsy Ross Flag; the controversy helped them sell their overpriced sneakers to woke millennials who think it is cool to hate anything worthy of respect. But the Indians put up meager resistance before caving on Chief Wahoo. Not the Yankees, though. They immediately deep-sixed the tradition of playing Kate Smith’s “God Bless America” — despite tradition being the whole point of the Yankees.

Who cares about baseball mascots and flags on kids’ sneakers? We all should. This is cultural genocide.

It is insidious because with prominent American leadership falling over like empty plastic bottles, the bannings are coming too quickly and too easily. They’re starting to look like a slippery slope to institutionalized suppression.

Starting to look?

Political disagreement is supposed to be about argument. But the proponents of these claims don’t bother to make an argument anymore. Instead, they posit assertions, such as that Kate Smith had to be held “accountable,” or mascots such as Chief Wahoo are “hurtful.”

Even if leftists could win on arguments, it wouldn’t be enough for them, now that the Culture War is becoming a mop-up operation.

They no longer seem content with winning. The left today has a compulsion to force obedience again and again. Thus, You didn’t like Wahoo and Kate Smith? Try this: We’re getting rid of your racist Betsy Ross flag, and you’ll shut your face and take it.

What they want from their opposition isn’t agreement with their ideas but submission—a kind of political lobotomization.

There will be no dissent in utopia. After the Culture War has been lost, we will all pretend to like what social engineers tell us to like. Every time we let liberals take something away from us, utopia looms closer on the horizon.

Confederate Railroad Unpersoned

The Southern rock band Confederate Railroad has been unpersoned. It has been around since the 1980s, but those who conform to goodthink will henceforth refuse to acknowledge its existence.

WSIL reports from rural southern Illinois on the first step in Southern Railroad’s eradication:

A band has been removed from the Du Quoin State Fair lineup.

Confederate Railroad will no longer perform on August 27.

The Du Quoin Weekly reports the band was removed because of their name.

The bureauweenies at the Illinois Department of Agriculture made the decision.

As everyone knew at the time, tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee was only the beginning. Anything explicitly referencing the South as a sociohistorical entity will be erased. Leftists are afraid that opposition will rally around the concept of the South. After all, the Confederate flag is a symbol of rebellion.

Regarding Confederate Railroad, Conservative Tribune notes that “there’s no indication that their name has any political undertones besides as tip of the hat to the southern roots of their music genre.”

The Dukes of Hazard did not have political undertones either. That did not stop it from going down the memory hole because liberals did not approve of the flag atop their car.

Band member Danny Shirley confirms that the point of the name is to indicate that they are “proud to be from the South.” That’s why his band is “problematic,” to use a favorite term of the Thought Police. You are not allowed to be proud to be from the South. You can be proud to engage in perverted sex acts though.

Between the relentless bullying of liberals and the submissive cowardice of everyone else, before long we will have no culture but liberal culture. In the midst of this cultural genocide, we have to listen to them preach at us about diversity.

If you like Lynyrd Skynyrd, be advised that the band is living on borrowed time. Don’t stream it; get it onto your hard drive where they can’t make it disappear.

Death Threats Used to Suppress Unplanned in Canada

Anyone wondering why lefties are referred to as the “Culture of Death” should find this story informative. Canadian theater owners are getting death threats for planning to show the pro-life movie Unplanned.

Unplanned dramatizes Abby Johnson’s conversion from Planned Parenthood abortion facility manager to pro-life advocate and was written, produced and directed by Cary Solomon and Chuck Konzelman.

The producers removed a listing of theaters that will show the movie on July 12 from their website at the request of the B.J. McKelvie, a pastor who is president of the Canadian distributor of the film, Cinedicon.

McKelvie confirmed to LifeSiteNews that two Canadian independent cinema owners contacted police after receiving death threats they perceived as credible, and that they are “fearful for their families.”

Another Canadian independent theatre owner “has been harrassed to the extreme.”

One of the two owners who contacted the police has cancelled the Unplanned screening, but all the rest “are holding their ground,” McKelvie said.

These are the tactics the Left uses when virtual total control of the media is not enough to eradicate dissent. Only one point of view is to be permitted.

LGBT Mob Vandalizes Chick-fil-A

Liberals demand that society cater obsessively to the sexually freakish. This is because Cultural Marxism is about exploiting alienated groups and deploying them against the cultural core. LGBT militants, infamous for their shamelessness and vicious vindictiveness, make excellent shock troops in the war against Christianity. For example:

A Chick-fil-A in Manhattan was vandalized during a gay pride parade on Sunday, as an LGBT terror mob wanted to send a statement to Christians nationwide.

Progressives hate Chick-fil-A despite its tasty sandwiches because the owners are Christians.

The mob put “F**k haters” on the windows alongside a red “X” targeting the Christian-friendly restaurant chain. In an ironic twist, the mob also put up a sign claiming “LOVE is a terrible thing to waste” as they committed their senseless acts of violence.

This is not so ironic when you consider that moonbats speak Orwellian. The people they call “haters” are the people they hate. In their language, “love” usually means “sexual depravity,” but it also can mean “hate,” as Marianne Williamson comically reminded us during the Democrat debates.

Sunday was blessedly the last day of Gay “Pride” Month. However, for moonbats, every month is Hate Decency Month, so we won’t have to wait for next June to see more sociopathic bullying.

Washington Post Encourages More Attacks on Republicans

It started with public figures being shrieked at by moonbats when they try to dine in public, as with Kirstjen Nielsen, Ted Cruz, and Mitch McConnell. It escalated when the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia refused to serve Sarah Sanders. Last Tuesday, liberal tolerance and civility escalated further when a waitress spat in the face of Eric Trump in The Aviary, a ritzy Chicago cocktail lounge. Then the odious Washington Post responded to this incident a few days later by publishing a rant by Stephanie Wilkinson, owner of the Red Hen, that actually justifies uncivil behavior toward non-leftists in public places like restaurants.

A few annotated lowlights:

[A]t bottom this isn’t about politics. It’s about values, and accountability to values, in business.

When a moonbat says it isn’t about politics, it’s about values, she means it isn’t about normal politics, it’s about self-righteous, elitist, if-you-don’t-agree-with-me-you-are-filth-and-must-die liberal politics.

On a variety of levels, pressure is increasing on companies to articulate and stand by a code. Customers are demonstrating that they want to patronize companies that share their values.

The term for this is ESG. It is responsible for the often nauseating ultraleft propaganda rammed down the public’s throat by belligerently woke corporations like Procter & Gamble, Nike, and Burger King. Sharing “values” that do not consist of radical left-wing political views has no part in this.

Our workforce also increasingly demands that employers establish a set of ethical standards. The once-ubiquitous idea that companies exist purely and solely to provide profit to shareholders is withering away like corn husks in the summer sun.

All good liberals know that it is not about profits, which are bad. It’s about social engineering. This attitude actually flies in the entertainment industry; we’ll see if it works for restaurants.

[I]t’s not okay to ask employees, partners or management to clock out of their consciences when they clock in to work.

When progressives are driven by their depraved ideology to do something vile, they see this as acting nobly in accordance with their consciences. We can assume that it is “not okay” to expect waitresses to refrain from spitting in the faces of customers they regard as insufficiently liberal.

The rules have shifted.

Now all is permitted, because orange man bad.

[W]hen the day comes that the world feels returned to its normal axis [i.e., when Democrats are back in full control of Washington], I expect we’ll see fewer highly charged encounters making headlines. In the meantime, the new rules apply. If you’re directly complicit in spreading hate or perpetuating suffering, maybe you should consider dining at home.

“Spreading hate or perpetuating suffering” is liberalese for “being the sort of person liberals hate and will take every opportunity to make suffer.” Hypocrisy is the core essence of their mentality, possibly because deep down they know that everything they say is wrong. That’s why they talk in euphemisms for euphemisms (e.g., choice = abortion = killing a baby) and sheer Orwellian B.S. (e.g., inclusion = exclusion of normal people).

In terms of irresponsibility, publishing this sociopathic garbage ranks with Maxine Waters egging on Democrats to harass any Republicans who dare go out in public. But at least Waters has the excuse of subnormal intelligence. WaPo knows what it is doing; it is not just bullying, which we are used to from progressives by now, but encouraging a steady escalation toward the political violence that is already beginning to emerge.

A new low, even for WaPo.

Online Knitting Community Bans Support for POTUS

Wherever you can find moonbats, you can find the repressive tolerance that characterizes their mentality. Even an online knitting community has banned support for the POTUS.

Here’s how Ravelry describes itself:

Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration. The content here is all user- driven; we as a community make the site what it is.

However, the community is forbidden for making the site a place where you might say something nice about the President. From yesterday’s official policy announcement:

We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry.

This includes support in the form of forum posts, projects, patterns, profiles, and all other content.

Hold on, the hypocrisy here could knock you off your chair:

We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy.

They cannot be inclusive without repressing the large percentage of the population that does not share their political outlook.

Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy.

The oft-shrieked claim that Trump personifies “white supremacy” remains to be substantiated. Maybe we should stop taking this term at face value and instead define it as meaning nothing more specific than “what moonbats don’t like.”

The policy statement encourages Ravelry readers to rat out thought criminals among their fellow knitters if they see any “unacceptable” projects or patterns.

A knitting community has become a microcosm of a world under liberal control.

World’s Oldest Record Store Bans Thought Criminal Morrissey

No deviation from liberal orthodoxy is permitted, not even for a lifelong animal rights fanatic like Morrissey. Wearing a conservative For Britain pin didn’t just make it unlikely that he will ever be invited back on the Tonight Show. It has gotten his music banned from Spiller Records in Cardiff, Wales — billed as the world’s oldest record store:

The shop, in Morgan Arcade, is refusing to stock the singer’s releases because of his continued support for the far-right.

“Far-right” in Britain means right of Theresa May’s Tories, the rightward side of the liberal establishment. Wearing a For Britain pin is far-right and therefore not to be tolerated by the militantly tolerant. Furthermore, Morrissey has spoken in favor of the thought criminal Tommy Robinson, who was arrested (and more recently hit with a milkshake) for his attempts to defend Britain from getting Islamized out of existence.

Ashli Todd, the owner of Spillers said: “I’m saddened but ultimately not surprised that Spillers is unable to stock Morrissey’s releases any longer. I only wished I’d done it sooner.”

We were brought up to believe that when our freedom is taken away, it will be by brawny guys wearing blond crewcuts and jackboots. As it turns out, we are losing it to people like Ashli Todd.
