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.

British Veteran Hit With Milkshake

The milkshake craze is catching on among British moonbats. They hit Tommy Robinson and Nigel Farage for advocating British interests in opposition to the globalist Left. Now they have gone after a 22-year veteran:

A British Army veteran was attacked with a milkshake outside a polling booth today in yet another disgraceful example of leftist violence.

UK citizens are voting in the European elections today, where the euro-skeptic Brexit Party is expected to dominate.

The moonbats running Burger King are no doubt delighted. With luck, they will be less delighted when the election results come in. The situation looks promising.

Piers Morgan may not understand the importance of gun rights, but he knows enough to be disgusted by leftist tactics:

Moonbat Regrets Nigel Farage Hit With Milkshake Not Acid

As punishment for his lead role in Britain’s noble attempt to reestablish itself as an independent nation, Nigel Farage has already been hit with a milkshake, which has become a favorite debating tactic among British leftists. That didn’t win the argument, so anti-Brexit moonbats want to escalate.

The top Brexiteer was targeted by Remainer Paul Crowther who threw milkshake at him on the campaign trail yesterday.

He scored a direct hit, covering Farage in sticky goop. This was not good enough for charity executive Ruth Townsley, who barked:

“Bravo to Paul Crowther, good on you mate.

“Great that milkshakes have become a thing when it comes to the racists in our midst. I’d prefer acid but milkshakes will do for now I guess.”

Islamization has made its mark on British society. Throwing acid in people’s faces to express disapproval is a Muslim specialty. Another win for multiculturalism.

One Nation Vehicle Set on Fire

When it comes to harassing countermoonbat candidates, not all moonbats are content to throw milkshakes. In Australia, it appears that they recently set a One Nation vehicle on fire:

One Nation wants to reduce mass immigration to stabilize the population, and to get out of the United Nations Refugee Convention because it is not in Australia’s interest. Setting the truck on fire was probably an enlightened liberal rebuttal to their arguments.

Fran Lebowitz Calls for Trump to Be Dismembered

Fran Lebowitz, who has been hyped as the current generation’s Dorothy Parker, has what it takes to qualify as an elite member of the intelligentsia: childishness, poor taste, irresponsibility, and theatrical hatred of the current POTUS:

Liberal author Fran Lebowitz went to the extreme Friday night during an appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” suggesting that President Trump should not only be impeached but killed.

Screeches Lebowitz:

“We should turn him over to the Saudis, you know, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter, you know. Maybe they can do the same for him.”

The reference is to Jamal Khashoggi, an activist journalist linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. He was beaten, tortured, murdered, and cut to pieces with a bone saw by the Saudi government.

That’s the same treatment enlightened, tolerant liberals think the President of the USA deserves. Any deplorable who supports him presumably deserves it too. If you disagree, you must be unenlightened and intolerant.

Unsurprisingly, her bloodthirsty call to violence drew applause from Bill Maher’s enlightened and tolerant liberal audience, though even Maher (who called Lebowitz the smartest person he knows) backed off from it.

Forced to back off herself, Lebowitz took the opportunity to remind us that we are dumb compared to smart people like her:

“I did not mean that and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it because they misinterpret everything,” Lebowitz added.

Dumb as we are, not many are dumb enough to regard this pathetic excuse for an apology as more sincere than her call to violence.

Imposing Leftism Through Financial Services

It isn’t just the social media titans of loony-left Silicon Valley. Financial services companies like Mastercard and even banks like Chase are now blacklisting people for their political views on behalf of intolerant leftist Jacobins like Color of Change.

Boston Globe Editorial: Tamper With Kirstjen Nielsen’s Food

Professional racist Jesse Jackson boasted that he spit in white people’s food when he worked in a restaurant. The moonbats who infest the “mainstream” media are cut of similar cloth — although for now they will sometimes back down from their more extreme outbursts:

After publishing an op-ed from Luke O’Neil that endorsed tampering [with] food intended for officials from the Trump administration, The Boston Globe edited the piece to tone it down.

Here is how O’Neil ended his enlightened piece on political tolerance entitled “Keep Kirstjen Nielsen Unemployed and Eating Grubhub Over Her Kitchen Sink”:

As for the waiters out there, I’m not saying you should tamper with anyone’s food, as that could get you into trouble. You might lose your serving job. But you’d be serving America. And you won’t have any regrets years later.

Restaurant workers have been known to do disgusting not to mention unhealthy things to people’s food when they bear a grudge. O’Neil wants to see more of this.

Even now, the MSM has vestigial traces of shame. Backlash on social media caused the Boston Globe to revise the column to end like this:

Living in Boston, we’re no strangers to visitors from any administration, whether they’ve been given a lecture role at a school like Harvard — which doesn’t seem to have any compunctions about welcoming literal comic book-style villains to campus — or of any of a number of other prestigious tech or academic institutions in the area. Invariably the bad guys, like the rest of us, will have to eat.

And when they show up in our restaurants, you have my permission, as an official member of the mainstream media, to tell them where to go and what they can do with themselves when they arrive there, but, you know, said in a more specific and traditional Boston colloquialism.

Kirstjen Nielsen qualifies as a “literal comic book-style villain” because she served as Director of Homeland Security in a Republican administration. Therefore, she deserves to be harassed or denied service if she dines out, as belligerently tolerant liberals have already done to her (as well as to Sarah Sanders, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, a random teenager wearing a MAGA cap, etc). The current Chair of the House Financial Services Committee encourages such behavior.

The original editorial also stated that one of the “biggest regrets” in O’Neil’s life is “not pissing in Bill Kristol’s salmon.” It has now been pulled altogether due to the blowback, and possibly because it revealed more than the editors wanted about their mentality.

The Washington Post, for whom O’Neil has also written, reports that

Rather than quell the outrage, though, the decision [to take down the vile editorial] incensed others, including O’Neil, who slammed the publication’s integrity.

That is, the Boston Globe lacks integrity because it did not stick by a piece suggesting that people should urinate in Kirstjen Nielsen’s food.

O’Neil has no regrets about writing it:

“I do not apologize for it personally whatsoever,” he said.

He isn’t the only one pleased with the clot of bile he coughed up.

Shirley Leung, the newspaper’s interim editorial page editor, shared the article to Twitter on Wednesday.

Imagine trusting people of this caliber to tell you what’s going on out there.

MAGA Shirt Banned on American Pride Day

The good news is that a high school held an American pride day. The bad news is that this doesn’t mean students were allowed to show support for the President of the USA. From Epping, New Hampshire:

High school freshman Ciretta MacKenzie didn’t think it would be a problem if she wore her President Trump T-shirt on Monday. After all, it was a day when students were encouraged to celebrate American pride by showing off their red, white and blue.

However, Epping High School Principal Brian Ernest demanded that the 14-year-old change her shirt, which featured the name Trump with the phrase “Make America Great Again” running beneath it.

Supposedly, supporting the POTUS might make someone feel uncomfortable. No doubt Ciretta felt uncomfortable herself, but she doesn’t count, because she supports the POTUS.

She was told that failure to remove the shirt would result in her being separated from the other students. So she borrowed a friend’s sweatshirt to cover it up. That’s how the First Amendment is honored at a government school.

This sort of pressure is bound to be effective on most children. That is how liberal social engineers have managed over the past decades to get so many to go along with such a depraved and, to put it mildly, counterproductive ideology.

At least it doesn’t appear that Ciretta was shamed in front of her peers, like 11-year-old Bella Moscato was after choosing Trump as her hero.
