What Mark Dice Wants for Christmas

It’s not too late for moonbats to get Mark Dice what he wants for Christmas. All they have to do is block him on Twitter, like so many have before:

Funny how the people who get blocked the most on Twitter overwhelmingly tend to be on the right. It is almost as if one side is unwilling to listen to the other, for fear that its ideology cannot withstand a challenge.

Moonbat Mob Comes After Whole Foods

Here’s another one to file under liberal tolerance. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was named “Person of the Year” by the national products trade publication WholeFoods Magazine for his contribution to legalizing industrial hemp. Moonbats, cognizant only that McConnell is a Republican and therefore bad, flew into a Twitter rage against Whole Foods, the favorite grocery store of many liberal elitists. It did not occur to them to wonder whether McConnell did something to earn the award — or even to wonder whether WholeFoods Magazine the trade publication has any relationship whatsoever with Whole Foods the grocery story.

Via the Washington Times:

Responses included, “We’re done with you,” “I won’t shop @WholeFoods anymore,” “I don’t understand why Whole Foods magazine would choose to associate #MoscowMitch with their brand,” and “Can’t tell if this is a parody or not.”

The hashtag #BoycottWholeFoods cropped on Twitter, with one disgruntled shopper tweeting, “Now let’s drown Whole Foods with a blue wave boycott.”

The liberal mob will take up their pitchforks and torches given the slightest pretext. They will turn on anyone over any perceived infraction against political correctness. Corporations are foolish to pander to them. Sooner or later, even the most obsequiously PC companies like Nike and Procter & Gamble will incur the mob’s wrath for one reason or another.

Ignited outrage against Whole Foods.

Campuses Achieve New Level of Hysterical Tyranny

Ideology can fester into a tyrannical form of mass insanity. It happened in the French Revolution, producing the Reign of Terror. It happened in communist China, producing the bloody Cultural Revolution. It is happening now on American college campuses, where so much as referring to something deemed politically incorrect results in harsh punishment.

At Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, militant students shut down a play the day before it would have opened.

Via the Wall Street Journal:

The aggrieved students were upset that the play, Larry Shue’s “The Foreigner,” depicts the evil antics of the Ku Klux Klan. But the play doesn’t show Klan members in a sympathetic light—on the contrary, they’re the villains of the piece, and they get their comeuppance in the end. Yet students were deeply upset by the Klan costumes the actors would wear, so the play had to go.

This won’t stop with the KKK. Imagine the future 20 years from now when these students control the legislature, courts, and media. Already, the greatest figures in American history have undergone demonization. Next, they will be unpersoned. This process is already well underway with Thomas Jefferson (see here, here, here, here, here, and here). Before long, people will lose their jobs for saying “Thomas Jefferson” out loud. As soft tyranny inevitably transitions to hard, the punishment will escalate.

People have already seen their careers destroyed for uttering the forbidden N-word in the context of condemning others for using it. Papa John and Mary Beth Maxwell are not the only examples:

At Emory University, law professor Paul Zwier is facing major sanctions from his school because, in a few instances, he said the N-word. Mr. Zwier didn’t direct the word at anyone or anything; he merely mentioned it, first as part of a discussion of case law and then to illustrate a larger point during a private conversation.

This is like a pediatrician being made into a pariah for looking at a child’s privates in the context of treating a disease.

Students claimed Mr. Zwier threatened their “safety and emotional well-being.” Another student who heard Mr. Zwier use the word was reportedly “visibly shaken” after the experience, as if he had suffered a near-death experience. Faculty wanted Mr. Zwier barred from school events, lest they be forced to sit near him and risk their own reputations.

Hypersensitivity has been weaponized, which is why it is taken to such ludicrous extremes. Proclamations of feeling “unsafe” or “triggered” serve the same purpose truncheons did in the past.

More examples:

An employee at the University of North Texas lost her job after referring to the N-word as an example of constitutionally protected speech. Students demanded her firing, claiming that her use of the word proved she was racist. At Augsburg University in Minneapolis, a professor uttered the word while discussing a James Baldwin text that itself used the word. That professor was suspended after a student outcry. A professor at the University of Kansas got booted off the tenure track after referring to the word during a class session.

The free interchange of ideas that once characterized colleges is impossible in such an environment. This level of tyranny will smother American culture as a whole if effective pushback against political correctness does not begin soon.

Hilarious Cancel Culture Video — From New York Times!

If even the New York Times understands, it must be obvious that the cancel culture mentality has gotten out of control. This is almost worthy of Monty Python:

You really can get canceled for saying something politically incorrect even if it is in the context of condemning someone else for saying it. That’s why you don’t see Papa John on TV anymore. The same thing happened to Mary Beth Maxwell of the Human Rights Campaign — and she declared her own canceling to be just.

As PJ Media notes, the New York Times takes part in the cancel culture too — on a selective basis:

In February 2018, the Times fired tech journalist Quinn Norton a few hours after hiring her to the editorial board. Her crime? Tweets that included derogatory slurs for gay people and black Americans. Norton apologized for her tweets, but explained that “[w]hen I speak to communities, I used their language to do it.” She described the outrage over her old tweets as “context collapse.”

In August 2018, The New York Times hired Sarah Jeong, who had shared her disdain for white people on Twitter. Among other things, she compared people to dogs and “groveling goblins” based on the color of their skin, and confessed that she took a sick pleasure from “being cruel to old white men.” Naturally, the Times decided to keep her on — and emphasize the fact that she had been bullied on social media.

Rather than denounce the shady Gray Lady for hypocrisy, let’s hope she is coming to recognize the error of her Jacobin ways.

Mob of Moonbats Crushes Free Speech at Binghamton

The leftists who hold sway on college campuses are so terrified of dissenting views that they will not allow even the most moderate of conservatives to have a say. At SUNY Binghamton in New York, the police had to be called to defend TPUSA members.

Via Campus Reform:

Lacey Kestecher, president of Binghamton University’s Turning Point USA chapter, was joined Wednesday by classmate John Lizak and Taylor Cisinski, a TPUSA regional manager, to recruit for their conservative group. The students also sought to advertise an upcoming College Republicans event featuring the prestigious economist Dr. Aurthur Laffer.

All hell broke loose.

After police arrived, students can be heard chanting “no justice, no peace, no racist police.” When a bystander asked what the police were doing to be considered racist, he was told to “shut the f*** up” as another student screamed “you’re white” as an explanation.

Lacey Kestecher was advised by police to avoid the middle of campus and to have someone with her at all times lest she be assaulted, now that she is known as a non–left-winger.

Welcome to the marketplace of ideas (LANGUAGE ALERT):

I rest my case against Affirmative Action admission policies.

Pro-Trump Women Thrown Out of Minneapolis Cafe

You don’t have to be a well-known Republican like Rand Paul to get harassed if you try to dine in public. You just have to let it be known that you supports Republicans. Sometimes the harassment will follow you afterward — as Trump supporters learned at a vegan cafe in Minneapolis earlier this month.

Via American Greatness:

A day before President Trump’s rally at the Target Center, Jennifer Underwood drove her two friends to a protest at the downtown office of Mayor Jacob Frey, who had tried to charge an exorbitant security fee of $530,000 to the Trump campaign.

Mayor Frey ostentatiously opposed the President’s visit.

Afterward they stopped in Hard Times Cafe in MAGA hats and “Cops for Trump” shirts, not realizing they had stepped into a cave full of moonbats.

“I don’t feel safe,” said a moonbat behind the counter when they entered. “I’m afraid and don’t feel safe,” she repeated.

This is the moonbat equivalent of a dog baring its teeth and snarling.

Then a guy behind the counter denounced the pro-life women as “terrorists and baby killers.” They were soon hounded out of the establishment by both employees and customers.

Another restaurant refused them service the same day. Also, someone hit Underwood with a full can of soda while she was walking down the street. The next day, Antifa goons attacked the Trump rally, committing multiple assaults.

It’s not over. Leftists have been harassing Underwood on Facebook and giving bad reviews of her Wisconsin realty business.

Progressives insist on total hegemony. Ham-fisted bullying tactics are used to guarantee that those who do not share their ideology keep their dissent to themselves. That way, people come to believe that it is normal to be a moonbat, and give in to the natural instinct to conform.

Eating out in the face of liberal tolerance.

LGBT Bullies Shut Down First UK Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A ranks number 1 in customer satisfaction among fast food chains in the USA. However, its attempt to expand into the UK has been unsuccessful, due to the rigid intolerance of LGBT bullies who hate the company for being owned by Christians.

Via the BBC:

Gay rights campaigners called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A, which opened its first branch at The Oracle shopping centre in Reading on 10 October.

A spokeswoman for the centre said “the right thing to do” was to not extend the restaurant’s lease beyond the “six-month pilot period”.

Here is the political sin that makes it intolerable that people should be allowed to eat the tasty sandwiches at Chick-fil-A:

According to [ultra-left] US news website Think Progress, in 2017 the Chick-fil-A Foundation donated millions of dollars to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Paul Anderson Youth Home and the US Salvation Army.

Campaigners from LGBT organisation, Reading Pride, said all three organisations have a reputation of being hostile to LGBT rights.

“Hostile to LGBT rights” means “not on board with the radical LGBT agenda.”

We have reached the point where donating to the Salvation Army can get a restaurant shut down.

In a statement, the UK Salvation Army said it “strongly objected to being presented as homophobic or transphobic”, adding that it had LGBT+ members and served people “without discrimination”.

Not good enough. Chick-fil-A doesn’t discriminate either. The Salvation Army is at least nominally Christian. Therefore, it is politically unclean and must be crushed in the name of “tolerance.”

Rand Paul Encounters Liberal Civility

As explicitly encouraged by Democrat congresscritter Maxine Waters and by the Washington Post, liberal civility continues to make it difficult for well-known Republicans to dine out. Progressives have bestowed their civility upon Kirstjen Nielsen, Ted Cruz, and Mitch McConnell. Now they serve up a helping to Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.

Via Washington Examiner:

“While having lunch with @RandPaul in California, we got verbally assaulted by these aggressive libs complaining about incivility. Check out the vid! #unhinged,” Sergio Gor, the deputy chief of staff for Paul, said Friday on Twitter.

Complaining about incivility, no less. The lack of self-awareness is almost psychotic.

The video starts with a woman flipping off the camera as it appears she is trying to operate her cellphone’s camera.

From there it goes downhill. Mind your ears; liberal civility often entails language that is unsuitable for children and polite company:

At least they didn’t break five of Paul’s ribs, unlike his comparably civil moonbat neighbor.

Progressive Intolerance Nixes Charity for Fallen Cops’ Families

The cancel culture doesn’t only exclude individuals like Carson King and news sources like Breitbart. Large sectors of the population get canceled — namely, conservatives. As a result, a police charity event was canceled too:

The Blue Bowl, a charity flag football game, was intended to raise money for the family of fallen Ventura County Sgt. Ron Helus as well as other officers killed in the line of duty, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported.

Helus died in the mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California last November 7.

Thousands of dollars had already been raised for fallen officers’ families, but the money is now being returned to donors because Thousand Oaks Police Chief Tim Hagel reportedly withdrew the police department because Trump supporters would be speaking at the event.

Both Democrats and Republicans were invited to the event. But only Democrats were welcome by Hagel. Deplorable invitees included Scott Baio and Joy Villa.

According to Mike Randall, vice president of the Fallen Officers Foundation,

Hagel told him to get rid of the Republican speakers or the police department would withdraw. They finally did pull out.

Asked Randall,

“Ron Helus was a true hero, he saved lives that night. Did he run in and go, ‘Are you Republican or Democrat or independent, I need to know before I help you?’”

Chief Tim Hagel might have.

Bon Air Fire Company Caves to Thought Police

Brace yourself for an appalling update on the story of the fire company that was shut down because it refused to accept the forced resignation of Bruce McClay, Jr, a firefighter who had socialized with the Proud Boys. The Bon Air Fire Company in Haverford Township, Pennsylvania has abandoned its principled stand; it has caved in to the thought police in the most shameful manner conceivable.

The company has been reinstated, but the price was way too high. In addition to throwing McClay to the sharks,

The fire company will reshape its leadership board — which had defended volunteer Bruce McClay Jr. for weeks — institute sensitivity training, and revise its bylaws, Haverford Board of Commissioners President Andy Lewis said Monday evening.

Sensitivity training is a degrading form of brainwashing by which victims are indoctrinated to hate themselves for their alleged white straight male privilege in the name of Cultural Marxism.

The statement further noted Bon Air would revise its current antidiscrimination policies so “that volunteers who engage in hate speech or join hate groups are not welcome in the Bon Air Fire Company.”

What exactly have the Proud Boys done to make them so horrible that even to have socialized with these people makes you unfit to put out fires? Nothing much. Their worst sin, other than a few scuffles with Antifa thugs, is that they have been denounced by the ultraleft ADL for the usual laundry list of vague -isms and -phobias. This apparently constitutes their only specific crime:

Members were present at the “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017.

This so-called “white supremacist” rally drew some unsavory people from both sides of the divide, but it was primarily a protest against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee. It is now considered beyond the pale to push back against the radical left’s War on History.

If they can demonize the Proud Boys to this outlandish extent, they can and will do the same to the NRA. Note that McClay never even joined the Proud Boys. With a few years, just having a beer with NRA members may cost you your job. Then they will go after registered Republicans and those suspected of being on friendly terms with them.

Tolerant Liberals Welcome Chick-fil-A to Toronto

Militant homosexuals are so desperate to find some oppression that they can use as leverage to acquire more power over the rest of us that they continue to wage a theatrical war against Chick-fil-A, on the sparse grounds that the ownership is Christian and therefore does not sufficiently revere people who wallow in sin and perversion. The first Chick-fil-A just opened in Toronto, but even after padding their ranks with animal rights kooks, LGBT Jacobins could not outnumber the hungry customers.

CTV News reports:

Let’s hope the Toronto Jesus in the City parade went well today and did not come under physical assault by tolerant liberals.

Writer Rebecca Makkai Says Any Red Hat Is Bad

You wouldn’t wave a red flag in front of a dyspeptic bull, would you? So why wear a red hat in front of a moonbat? When utopia has been achieved, it won’t be allowed.

Via Fox News:

An author who has been a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award received backlash on Twitter after likening President Trump’s red “Make America Great Again” hats to the Nazi swastika — and urging “normal people” (i.e., non-Trump voters) to avoid wearing any type of red hat, saying they’d be “making people scared” by doing so.

Normal people? Looks like liberals are coopting the word “normal” to mean its opposite, just like they did with the word “liberal.”

The Chicago-based author, Rebecca Makkai, 41, made the remarks in a string of tweets beginning over the weekend and carrying into early this week. She also asked sports fans whose teams wear red hats — such as the Cincinnati Reds, Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals — not to don that specific color cap in public.

It goes without saying that it is beyond the pale to express a right-of-center point of view. Now we learn that it could be a thought crime even to inadvertently remind moonbats that alternatives to their viewpoint exist.

Given how quickly the Philadelphia Flyers sacrificed Kate Smith to the “liberal” mob, don’t be surprised if the Phillies change their uniform so that no moonbats are reminded of MAGA hats and made to feel “unsafe,” as Makkai puts it.

Speaking of unsafe, wearing an actual MAGA hat in public often results in being violently assaulted. Even wearing a hat that looks like a MAGA hat has triggered violence from progressives.

Fire Company Shut Down for Failing to Purge Thought Criminal

The tolerance of the liberal establishment has reached such an extreme that an entire volunteer fire company in Pennsylvania was shut down because a volunteer named Bruce McClay Jr had been in contact with a patriotic social club regarded by the media as “far right,” the Proud Boys.

Via the Philadelphia Enquirer:

Haverford Township said Wednesday that one of its five fire companies [the Bon Air Fire Company] had been “relieved of duty indefinitely” after officials were told by the organization that it would not dismiss a volunteer who admitted he had been in the process of joining the controversial far-right men’s group the Proud Boys. …

According to the township, the volunteer admitted to officials in mid-August that he had attended “several social gatherings” for the Proud Boys and passed two of the four steps in the initiation process, including hazing.

The Proud Boys are a “hate group” because they are pro-Western and refuse “to apologize for creating the modern world.” This stance is now regarded as beyond the pale, as it counters the spirit of Cultural Marxism.

McClay tried to resign, but the other volunteers at Bon Air were American enough not to accept his resignation. Therefore, the whole company is guilty of wrongthink and must be erased before the infection spreads — even if it means other fire companies getting spread thin so that people’s houses burn down.

Try not to choke on this hypocrisy:

“The volunteer’s participation in an organization described as an extremist group and the Bon Air Fire Company’s failure to address this matter conflicts with the public policy of Haverford Township, which includes ensuring that all persons are treated fairly and equally, and that all persons enjoy the full benefits of citizenship,” the township manager said in his statement.

It used to be that freedom of thought and of association were among the benefits of American citizenship. But that was before the Establishment became woke.

Too bad for McClay he wasn’t involved with Antifa instead of the Proud Boys. Then he would be treated fairly and equally.

Within a couple of years, turning the station TV to Fox News will be enough to get a fire company shut down.
