Crybullies Weep to Cancel Jordan Peterson Book

Rigidly intolerant moonbats infest the publishing industry. Penguin Random House Canada is in hot water with its own employees for planning to publish the new book Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life by the soft-spoken, moderate conservative Jordan Peterson.

Via Vice:

“[Peterson] is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy, regardless of the content of his book, I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him,” [barked] a junior employee who is a member of the LGBTQ community…

The content of the book does not matter, because Peterson has been canceled for past crimes against liberal dogma. Prominent among them, Peterson has refused to refer to cross-dressing men with feminine pronouns and to pretend there is such a thing as “white privilege.” He has failed to embrace demasculinization. Worst of all, he promotes personal responsibility, which is anathema to liberals.

Another employee said “people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives.” They said one co-worker discussed how Peterson had radicalized their father and another talked about how publishing the book will negatively affect their non-binary friend.

For moonbats, tears are weapons.

“The company since June has been doing all these anti-racist and allyship things and them publishing Peterson’s book completely goes against this. It just makes all of their previous efforts seem completely performative,” the employee added.

It is not enough to publish leftist propaganda by the shipload. Publishers must produce nothing other than leftist propaganda. Otherwise, snowflakes will weep menacingly.

A third employee told VICE World News the company’s diversity and inclusion committee received at least 70 anonymous messages about Peterson’s book, and only a couple are in favour of the decision to publish it.

Previous generations produced the Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition. Now we have diversity and inclusion committees.

Woke Lynch Mob Comes for John Cleese

As J.K. Rowling has learned, it isn’t enough to be left-leaning in general. You have to toe the line on all aspects of current leftist ideology, no matter how pernicious, depraved, and insane. When the lynch mob comes for thought criminals like Rowling, who has objected to some of the more outrageous demands by militant transsexuals, you had better not object to their cancelation. If you defend them in any way, you too are a thought criminal. The lynch mob will then come for you, just as it has come for John Cleese after he signed a letter of support for Rowling.

Encouragingly, Cleese has pushed back against the bullying:

“Deep down, I want to be a Cambodian police woman. Is that allowed, or am I being unrealistic?” he replied to someone who asked why he couldn’t “just let people be who they want to be.”

More defiance:

“I’m afraid I’m not that interested in trans folks,” he admitted when pressed to “be upfront” about his views on Rowling’s controversy.

That must have evoked a chorus of horrified gasps from moonbats.

“I just hope they’re happy and that people treat them kindly,” he wrote.

Not good enough. You are not allowed to be a nice guy who wishes transsexuals well and leave it at that. You are required to worship them, and to endorse all aspects of their agenda: men playing women’s sports, boys in the girls’ locker room, little kids getting “transitioned” into trophy transexuals by their woke parents, the works.

He later complained that critics showed a “complete lack of perspective” as well as a “complete lack of a sense of humor,” asking, “Heard a woke joke yet?”

The Twitter mob does not permit such insolence. Denunciations of Cleese as “transphobic” trended on the moonbat-friendly platform.

“Damn. Really wasn’t expecting someone as talented and amazing as John Cleese to be anti-trans,” author Adam Tierney wrote with a sad-face emoji.

“Dude … John Cleese being Transphobic was not something I saw coming and I am thoroughly disappointed by it,” one follower wrote…

These woke vigilantes were so surprised by Cleese displaying a sense of humor rather than obsequious submission, you would think they had been suddenly confronted by the Spanish Inquisition.

They must have missed Life of Brian:

MAGA Hat as Intolerable Thought Crime at La Jolla Country Day School

The Islamofascist maniacs ruling repressed hellholes like Iran have a soft tyranny equivalent in the martinets of the liberal elite. Merely showing support for the president of your own country can provoke a ferocious reaction. Gary Krahn presides over the staggeringly expensive La Jolla Country Day School in San Diego. He does not tolerate dissent among students.

KUSI obtained an email Krahn sent to all staff at the school:

Krahn’s email reads, “We … had a student wear a MAGA Hat today. I have talked with that student who now understands why that hat is offensive to our community. He will not wear it again. In addition his mom said that she is embarrassed by his actions. She will fulfill her role as a parent. We will continue to grow as a community that sees and values the dignity of all people.”

Seeing and valuing the dignity of all people consists of ruthlessly persecuting anyone who opposes Team Democrat.

According to the school’s 2020-2021 Parent/Student Handbook, there is no rule against political attire in the school’s dress code.

Stated rules are irrelevant. For tyranny to be effective, crime and punishment must be defined on an ad hoc basis. Only those in constant fear of committing a thought crime can be counted on to police themselves with sufficient rigor.

It is worth noting that La Jolla County Day is one of the most prestigious private schools in San Diego County. They have students from first grade through High School, with yearly tuition ranging from $16,650 all the way up to $37,130 for High School.

For that kind of money, liberal elite parents expect a learning environment completely free of deviant thought.

Today’s totalitarians don’t rule primarily through brute force. Particularly with children, it works just as well to fill people’s heads with lies, turn them against their own beliefs, and manipulate them through neurotic guilt. A surprisingly effective tactic is to equate anything you want suppressed with racism, then piously denounce racism. Krahn explains how it is done:

Opposition will not be tolerated, because it offends the tender sensibilities of the allegedly oppressed. At least it was less nauseating when they said, opposition will not be tolerated, shut up or we will blow your brains out.

Twitter Mob Calls for Reeducation Camps, Firing Squads

In the absence of effective pushback, how far will leftists push their agenda? All the way. Milestones on the road ahead include reeducation camps and firing squads.

Blue check moonbat David Atkins, a newly elected member of the Democratic National Committee, started a Twitter conversation rolling by asking how 75 million people (presumably a reference to Trump voters) could be deprogrammed — i.e., brainwashed to believe in leftist dogma.

Respondents surreally yet characteristically equated conservatives with Nazis. Trials for Trump supporters should be modeled on the Nuremberg trials. The irony of authoritarians calling people who believe in limited government “Nazis” escapes them; if they had any self-awareness, they would be shamed into discarding an ideology that accentuates their most appalling characteristics.

This apparently deleted response nicely sums up the mentality:

Another calls for more rigid censorship combined with socialism:

A moonbat going by StarlaD wants to “End the flow of false information suddenly and immediately” — i.e., suppress any speech that does not support the liberal narrative.

Americans are not going to reach reasonable agreements with these people. Either one side wins or the other does.

Michelle Malkin Rejects Biden’s Fake Truce

Assuming that they are about to take control of the White House, Democrats are ready for unity and healing — by which they mean submission and compliance with their lunatic agenda.

There is no reason to believe that they have abruptly discovered tolerance for ideological diversity. Biden’s phony olive branch is a truncheon. Michelle Malkin knows what he can do with it:

AOC: The Face of Cold Hate

Representing a sensible state, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has refused to get on board with the plan to destroy our system of government for the sake of creating single-party rule the moment Democrats have control of both the White House and the Senate. He won’t go for abolishing the filibuster, much less for turning the Supreme Court into a junta by packing it with leftists. He has also denounced socialized medicine and the insane “defund the police” policy embraced by the Democrats’ nihilist base.

From the Washington Examiner:

“Defund, my butt!” he said in response to the idea of stripping funding of police departments. He also criticized efforts to provide “Medicare for all”…

“Hell, we’re not able to take care of the Medicare for some that have earned it. I said, Christ, you want Medicare for all, you’d better take care of the some you already owe it to,” he said.

As for the welfare state,

“People just have the perception Democrats just want to give away everything. I don’t. I wasn’t raised that way. I’ll help you if you’re down and out. If you can’t take care of yourself, I’ll make sure we take care of you, but by golly, if you can contribute, get off your ass and start working.”

This has not endeared him to other Democrats:

Pure hate is scary on the face of someone as powerful as the Future of the Democratic Party. Imagine what AOC will do with her hatred if she becomes even more powerful.

The Independent reports, via Yahoo:

AOC concisely summed up her displeasure … by posting a single photo of her staring deadpan at the back of Sen Manchin’s head during a State of the Union address in 2019.

It only took clapping at something Trump said to earn that look. The look on her face now would probably ignite kindling.

Her vicious intolerance of dissent is shared by many a moonbat on Twitter.

The progressive Democratic congresswoman received over 200,000 likes on the platform in just an hour following its publication on Thursday evening.

Switch parties, Joe Manchin. And sleep with one eye open.

Your Leader Is Hitler, Let’s Unite and Heal

They say they want unity and healing. Then they compare our president to Hitler.

House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) ranks among the relatively sane Democrats who wish the maniacs in their party would shut up about “Medicare for All, defund the police, socialized medicine” et cetera. Yet listen his rhetoric:

“Unity” is Liberalese for “capitulation.” “Healing” is Liberalese for “submission.”

The Hollow Hypocrisy of Dem Calls for Unity and Healing

The election was a virtual tie, so that even now it is not entirely clear who won. But the same establishment media/Democrat Party that has waged total war against Trump and his supporters throughout his administration has announced Biden the winner, so now we are supposed to put division behind us and all unite. “We are not enemies. We are Americans,” croaks Biden.

Gerard Baker is choking on the hypocrisy:

If there’s a single image that captures the hollow hypocrisy of these pleas for unity and healing, it was one I witnessed on the streets of Manhattan on Saturday in the minutes after the television networks had anointed Mr. Biden president-elect: jubilant crowds dancing joyfully in front of stores that had been boarded up in advance of the election in case the result went the other way.

There can be unison so long as they get their way. There will be riots and strife if they don’t.

The choice is clear: we can unconditionally surrender to leftists or we can fight them constantly. That choice remains, regardless of the election results.

Expect No Grace From Triumphant Liberals

In 2016 and for the 4 years that followed, we saw that liberals are not good losers. Now that the media proclaims Joe Biden has won, we see that they are not good winners either. Patriots should expect no grace.

The Bitter Half characteristically congratulated Biden by denouncing the 70 million Americans who voted against him:

She trashed Trump voters as she reminded Biden voters to find what unites Americans. “Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division.”

Insults from Michelle Obama we can weather. This sounds more serious:

Journalist Drew Holden shared a lengthy — and alarming — list of media outlets, fellow journalists, and members of the Democratic Party who are threatening retribution against Republicans supporting President Donald Trump and his allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election and more.

Holden concluded the lengthy list — which you can read in its entirety herewriting, “At the end of the day, I can’t imagine these folks will be shipping conservatives off to the gulags in a divided government, much as they would like to. But it fundamentally cuts against the spirit of America to suggest someone should be punished for their political views.”

As for the gulags, what if they can pour enough money into Georgia to take control of the Senate? Chuck Schumer is eager to tell you what will happen then.

Those who have endorsed variations on the theme of collecting a list of Trump supporters and subjecting them to a Torquemada-style Truth and Reconciliation Commission include former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, MSNBC propagandist Chris Hayes, the Nation, the Philadelphia Inquirer, ballyhooed Future of the Democratic Party Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Washington Post propagandist Jennifer Rubin.

Rubin, who has been passed off as a token conservative in the liberal media, is as usual particularly vicious and vindictive toward actual conservatives. In the video below, she confirms that those who supported Trump — the “survivors” as she calls them — must be hunted down and canceled. Her fellow moonbats must “burn down the Republican Party.”

No doubt Rubin has signed up with the hair-raising Trump Accountability Project, which promises to target anyone who worked on the Trump campaign, staffed his administration, or donated to his election.

Giving power to these people is like giving pyromaniacs gasoline and matches.

Leftists Have Plans for Those Who Opposed Them

Leftists can smell victory, even if their vehicle Joe Biden just barely squeaks into office with the help of systemic election fraud. They look forward to punishing those who opposed their rise to power. As totalitarians have done in other countries, people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are taking names and making lists:

“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Friday.

Some people still react to these threats like Americans:

“Joseph is proud of you!” one user wrote, referring to notorious Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin.

Another person posted a photo of Mao Zedong with the caption: “Big shoes to fill but you’ll get there.”

What happens to the people on the list? Possibly inspired by the Spanish Inquisition and the book 1984, Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich (now a Berkeley professor) wants to subject them to a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission”:

After this commission finds them guilty of thought crimes, what happens next? Let’s ask a representative of the entertainment industry, one of the left’s securest pillars of power.

The Blaze reports:

Actress and singer Janelle Monáe went on a rant where she lambasted the nearly 70 million Americans who voted for President Donald Trump in the election. Monáe said that every person who supported President Trump should “burn.”

Entertainers do tend to be wacky. Monáe, for example, wants to abolish the Electoral College for being “RACIST BULLS***” and has proclaimed herself to be “pansexual.”

Let’s ask someone more sober. How about a guy who used to anchor the flagship program on MSNBC? To quote Keith Olbermann,

“Trump … and his enablers, and his supporters, and his collaborators, and the Mike Lees and the William Barrs, and Sean Hannitys, and the Mike Pences, and the Rudy Gullianis and the Kyle Rittenhouses and the Amy Coney Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society…”

So, gulags then. At least they aren’t openly calling for executions yet. They still fear the public a little bit.

We can laugh at these people for now. But anyone crazy enough to try to impose economic collapse through the Green New Deal is crazy enough to kill people in large numbers for objecting to starvation. Readers are referred again to Stalin and Mao.

Dem Communications Director Pulls Knife on Women for Trump

If its support for Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters hasn’t convinced you that the Democratic Party is the party of maniacs, maybe this will. Clayton John Callahan, communications director for the Democrat Party of Washington County, Oregon, was arrested Sunday for pulling a knife on lady patriots at an Oregon Women for Trump event.
