Coeur d’Alene Shows How to Respond to Tyranny

California moonbats must be colonizing Idaho the way they did Oregon and Washington. In Coeur d’Alene, local bureaurats banned the Cross:

Coeur d’Alene Chamber of Commerce recently changed their policies to prohibit religious symbols and flags in their annual 4th of July parade.

Liberals quickly seize control of local government, driven by their compulsion to boss other people around. But the native population has not yet been displaced:

Not being Christian is no excuse for not carrying a cross if liberals tell you that you can’t.

Hostility to the religion that has served as the backbone of Western Civilization for 2,000 years is not limited to the termites who have seized control of Coeur d’Alene. The rot reaches to the top of the federal government. In the official tweet below, the Biden Regime attempts to scare its base into voting by warning that Christians might hamper the killing of inconvenient babies. The symbolism underscores that the Democratic Party is not merely wrong but evil:

Nothing is more ominous to a moonbat than the Cross. It works on them the same way it does on vampires in horror movies and for the same reason.

Your Property Is Not Your Property

Under leftist rule, your property is not your property. It belongs to bureaucrats. They might let you use it, but only on their terms. If you use it in a way that contradicts their ideology, they may punish you.

From Connecticut:

A Barnum Road homeowner accused of cutting down trees and filling in environmentally sensitive wetlands with soil and wood chips has been ordered by the city of Danbury to complete a $26,000 restoration of the property.

That is, she cleaned up a swamp on her own property. Liberals like swamps. So they made her put the swamp back. Because the planet.

About 1.5 acres on the homeowner’s 3.3-acre property is wetlands…

No doubt the planet will feel much better after the acre and a half of swamp is restored. Bureaucrats already feel better, smugly pleased by their belief that they can make anyone do anything just because they say to.

To be sure the wetlands are not degraded again, the city order requires the homeowner to place a line of boulders between the home and the wetlands, among other requirements.

The point is to remind her whose property it is.

Forcing Doctors to Inform on Microaggressors

“Snitches give stitches,” as Jonathan Turley puts it. Doctors in Oregon may soon risk losing their medical license not only for committing trivial thought crimes (a.k.a. “microaggressions”) but for failing to report them.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The state’s medical board is in the process of shoehorning “microaggressions”—innocently intentioned behaviors interpreted by women or minorities to be subliminal communications of bias—into its definition of “unprofessional conduct,” according to the proposed rule, which the board unveiled in April.

This will not improve the quality of healthcare. As former University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine associate dean Stanley Goldfarb of the countermoonbat medical group Do No Harm observes,

“If [doctors] believe that they can be sanctioned because they deliver bad news or make a comment that the patient misinterprets, this will lead to a chilling effect on speech and ultimately lead to deterioration in the patient-physician relationship.”

A poisoned patient–physician relationship and CYA as an approach to medicine are already problems due to lawsuit abuse. They will now get worse.

Here’s how easy it is to commit a microaggression:

“America is the land of opportunity.” “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.” “America is a melting pot.” Those are examples of harmful “microaggressions,” according to Columbia professor Derald Wing Sue, lauded by Oregon’s state government as a “microaggressions expert.” […]

In its 2021 “DEI Action Plan,” for example, the Oregon Department of Administrative Services said posing the question, “How did you get your job?” to a minority constitutes a “racial microaggression.”

Other sentiments designated by Sue as microaggressions include “Everyone can succeed if they just work hard enough” and “There is only one race, the human race.”

As a rule of thumb, if Joy Reid would not bob her head in agreement, then don’t say it, because it is a microaggression.

We have passed the point where it is sufficient never to say anything a radical leftist would dispute. Doctors will be required to actively participate in imposing tyranny. Turley notes that under the proposed rule,

“a licensee must report within 10 business days to the Board any information that appears to show that a licensee is or may be medically incompetent or is or may be guilty of unprofessional or dishonorable conduct or is or may be a licensee with a physical incapacity.”

Committing a microaggression would officially qualify as “unprofessional or dishonorable conduct.” Those who fail to report microaggressing colleagues to the Stasi might also lose their licenses.

That’s the kind of country liberals are turning this into.

FBI Visits Whistleblower Children’s Hospital Nurse

Under Democrat rule, FBI agents do more than march in gay pride parades, peddle phony crime stats, and paint transsexual flags on their fingernails. For an organization degenerating into the American KGB, there is also the business of terrorizing the ideologically problematic:

The Biden administration sent a pair of FBI agents to the home of a nurse who asserted that staff at her hospital were committing Medicaid fraud in order to subject children to illicit “transgender” procedures.

As Mark Houck could tell you, having the FBI show up at your house is unlikely to be the highlight of your day. Craig Robertson and Theodore Deschler probably wouldn’t think so either, but we can’t ask them, because they are dead.

“According to a new whistleblower, doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital [TCH] were willing to falsify medical records and break the law to keep practicing ‘gender-affirming care,’” scholar Christopher Rufo wrote in City Journal Tuesday.

Registered nurse Vanessa Sivadge worked extensively with children the hospital designated as “transgender.” TCH has subjected such children to sexual transmogrification procedures that would send Josef Mengele racing for the men’s room with vomit spurting from between his fingers.

Sivadge told Rufo that TCH, America’s largest children’s hospital, “is illegally billing Medicaid for transgender procedures.”

The Feds don’t like it when people call attention to money illicitly spent and crimes against humanity committed in the name of their official ideology.

Texas State Rep. Brian Harrison, R-Midlothian, noted on X that the office of Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton determined the “transgender” procedures TCH staff performed on minors amounted to child abuse.

Child abuse is putting it mildly.

Meanwhile, Biden’s weaponized Injustice Department has indicted Dr. Eithan Haim, another TCH whistleblower.

As Alexander Solzhenitsyn observed, “Evil people always support each other; that is their chief strength.” Resist evil and you risk incurring the wrath of the entire liberal establishment.

German Left-Wing Establishment Trying to Ban AfD

Leftists “defend democracy” slightly differently in Germany than in the USA. Here, they convict the leading opposition figure on 34 bogus felony charges in a ludicrous show trial. Lacking the American heritage of liberty, German progressives want to cut to the chase by banning a whole party for opposing them — namely the countermoonbat Alternative für Deutschland:

How else would you expect Euromoonbats to react to the kick in the pants they received in the recent elections?

Stand by for a similarly ham-fisted reaction from our own establishment if Trump prevails in November.

Felony Charges for Teens Who Left Skid Marks

“To learn who rules over you,” advised Voltaire, “simply look to those you cannot criticize.” We are ruled over by depraved degenerates. Just to express lack of reverence for them is punished severely by the same liberal nomenklatura that refuses to punish violent crime.

In the unlikely event that anyone doesn’t know who has the whip hand under Democrat rule, liberals have been painting the rainbow flag signifying politicized sexual perversion on city streets, just as you might expect to see swastikas all over the place if you were transported back in time to the Third Reich. So much as leaving tire marks on a street where these flags have been painted is regarded as dissidence; it can lead to manhunts and felony charges:

On Wednesday night, just a few hours after Spokane had given its LGBTQ+++ Pride Mural a fresh coat of paint, three teens made their mark—literally. Ruslan Turko, 19, along with two other underage teenagers, left scooter marks on it. For this most heinous crime against humanity, they were arrested and charged with 1st degree “malicious mischief,” a felony that could land them up to 10 years in jail. And if that’s not punishment enough—and of course, it’s not—the prosecutors wanted $15,000 bail for these budding serial killers.

Soft tyranny is inevitably evolving into hard tyranny.

The kids are also alleged to have made defiant remarks regarding those who engage in the homosexual lifestyle that the liberal establishment has been cramming down our throats.


In America, you can spit on Vietnam veterans, defecate on the US flag, threaten the lives of US Supreme Court Justices, mock Christianity, and burn entire cities to the ground in the name of a career felon.

All that would constitute approved speech. But only approved speech is approved.

Dissent is a “hate crime.”

Letitia James Tries to Dictate to Texas

Yesterday’s preposterous Trump verdict demonstrates that the leftists running states that have succumbed to the Democrat Death Spiral can inflict their malevolent will on a national level. Now Letitia James & Associates are dictating to Texas:

New York Attorney General Letitia James, along with 13 other state attorneys general, asked the U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday to open a civil rights investigation following the pardon of Daniel Perry by Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott.

In one of the alarming miscarriages of justice that are becoming increasingly commonplace, Perry was sentenced to 25 years for using lethal force to defend himself from armed Black Lives Matter rioter Garrett Foster. Fortunately, sanity prevailed, and Perry was pardoned.

Not good enough for Letitia James. Any enemy of BLM is her enemy. Intervening in someone else’s jurisdiction to imprison such people is framed as “civil rights.”

Fined for Silent Thoughtcrime in UK

Under absolute tyranny, thoughtcrime is literally crime — even if it goes unexpressed. From formerly great Britain:

Sebastian Vaughan-Spruce, a 44-year-old landscape gardener and pro-life activist, was fined on May 16 in Birmingham, England over suspicion of his silent thoughts in violation of the “buffer zone” regulations enforced by local authorities…

He carried no sign and remained completely silent until approached by officers, in which he clarified he was not praying silently in his head.

Yes, but can he prove he wasn’t praying silently?

When he asked officers what his alleged crime was, they asked him to move elsewhere.

Vaughan-Spruce knows perfectly well what his ongoing crime is:

“Others were present there at the same time, yet I was singled out because of the beliefs I happen to hold,” he said.

Being known to respect the sanctity of innocent human life makes him subject to a PSPO:

The so-called “buffer zones” are part of a Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) implemented by Birmingham authorities, which criminalizes individuals perceived to be “engaging in any act of approval or disapproval or attempted act of approval or disapproval” in relation to abortion, including through “verbal or written means, prayer or counseling,” the press release states.

But if you want to shriek at the top of your lungs in support of Hamas terrorists, have at it.

He isn’t the first Vaughan-Spruce to run afoul of the Thought Police:

After a six-month investigation, police in England decided not to bring charges against Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, the director of the UK March for Life and sister of Sebastian Vaughan-Spruce. Ms. Vaughan-Spruce had told police she “might” be praying silently when they asked why she was standing on a public street near an abortion facility that was included in a PSPO.

It isn’t necessary to follow through on charges and find thought criminals guilty. The process is the punishment.

To ensure that authorities do not suspect you of forbidden thoughts, it would be prudent to loudly advocate abortion, sexual depravity, mass Third World immigration, and the rest of the leftist agenda at every opportunity.

Soft tyranny is still tyranny.

USA Not Far Behind Canada Regarding Liberal Tyranny

To the north, the cultural rot sometimes called “liberalism” is producing tyranny so extreme that if the Online Harms Act becomes law, Canadians will soon be imprisoned for “hate speech” committed in the distant past or even future. Despite its heritage of liberty, the USA is not far behind.

Already, complaining that our elections are degenerating into banana republic farces can get you thrown off the airwaves:

Rudy Giuliani’s conservative talk radio show has been pulled off air after the former New York City mayor and former Trump lawyer repeatedly questioned the results of the 2020 presidential election.

John Catsimatidis, the billionaire owner of WABC, abruptly nixed the show and suspended Giuliani from the station over the statements.

Stuffing a sock in the mouth of anyone who raises questions is not the best way to restore public faith in election integrity. But the liberal establishment is moving beyond caring what the public thinks.

Catsimatidis does not directly represent the government. Ours is still a decentralized tyranny for now — although already it is largely imposed by federal agents:

The U.S. Secret Service investigated a Maine resident after he joked about wanting to “invade” the White House to get a picture of President Joe Biden wearing an adult diaper.

The incident occurred in July 2022, when the Secret Service became interested in an unidentified resident of coastal Maine after his posts on X.

In one of them, the man suggested that he sought to “invade the White House and get pics of Biden in his ‘Depends.’”

For now, federal investigations over jokes serve mainly to intimidate people into pretending to respect their rulers. But authoritarianism naturally expands into vacuums of the type created by our cultural decline. Absent pushback, people poking fun at Biden on X will soon find themselves in an American Lubyanka. This could be why the Biden Regime is spending $billions of our money on a new FBI headquarters twice the size of the Pentagon.

Transgenderism as a Totalitarian Ideology

The sick cult of transgenderism has metastasized into a truly totalitarian ideology, imposed by the government on every aspect of society.

Women’s sports are the most obvious example. We can’t have them anymore — because transgenderism:

The Biden administration’s pro-transgender rewrite of Title IX rules is hiding rule changes that could end single-sex K-12 sports as soon as August 2024.

Typically of totalitarian societies, we are required to explicitly reject objective reality in favor of the ideology being imposed:

At issue are the segments that seem to require schools to use the “pronouns” demanded by trans identifying kids in schools.

Compelled speech is a violation of the First Amendment. But the US Constitution is easily dismissed as transphobic.

Transgenderism is important to our ruling class because it can be used as a sledgehammer to smash Christianity and conscience:

In a wide-ranging final rule released Friday, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) strengthened the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) rules that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, including on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, in certain health programs and activities.

By defining any resistance to transgender depravity as “discrimination on the basis of sex,” liberals can steamroll over religious objections to inflicting sex change atrocities on children:

The final rule comes at a time when GOP-led states are curtailing access to gender-affirming medical care.

Note that this is from the liberal outlet The Hill and is therefore written in Orwellian Euphemese. “Gender-affirming medical care” means “gender-denying sex change procedures.”

Advocates were concerned that the previous policies would have made it easier for doctors, hospitals and insurance companies to deny care or coverage to transgender and nonbinary patients…

For now, doctors can still object on grounds of conscience. But they have to prove to bureaucrats and the increasingly ultraleft healthcare establishment that a “sincerely-held belief” prevents them from wanting to mutilate children, rather than simple decency a.k.a. transphobia. That would put the kibosh on many a career.

It isn’t only doctors who are pressured to succumb to the Regime’s ideology. Even pharmacists must comply. Law & Liberty draws our attention to an article published in the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association entitled “Exploring LGBTQ+ Cultural Competency and DEI in Continuing Education: A Cross-Sectional Review of U.S. Pharmacy Legislation”:

The article … approvingly writes about California Assembly Bill 2194 that requires an hour of continuing education in so-called cultural competency for pharmacists (approximately 32,000) and pharmacy technicians (approximately 37,000) to renew their licenses: “Requiring LGBTQ+ cultural competency training will help pharmacists uphold the Oath of a Pharmacist to promote inclusion, embrace diversity, and advocate for justice to advance health equity and to assure optimal outcomes for all patients.”

In other words, Californians must undergo brainwashing in transgenderism to work as a pharmacist.

The tyranny applies beyond the medical profession. Whatever your line of work, you are required to comply with transgenderism:

In landmark guidance, [a] federal commission created to fight racial and sexual discrimination declared Monday that employers that fail to use a worker’s preferred pronoun or refuse them the chance to use the restroom of their choice will be engaging in prohibited harassment.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission published the new harassment guidelines Monday after voting along partisan lines on Friday to approve them, even in the face of opposition from nearly two dozen red states.

Employers are actually required by the government to refer to men as “her” and to allow male perverts to invade private facilities intended for women. Stalin himself never imagined a form of totalitarianism this intrusive.

Democrat War on Freelancers Continues

Now that Biden has raised the cost of living by driving up inflation through gargantuan wasteful spending, freelance work is more crucial than ever, as it allows people to earn extra money to make ends meet. Many rely entirely on freelance work for their income. Some professions might not exist if they could not be pursued on an independent basis. Yet the Biden Regime moves forward with its objective of making freelance work illegal:

It isn’t only about sucking up to cancerous Big Unions in exchange for political donations. The ideological aspect is suggested in the word “freelance.” “Free” can mean two very different things. If it means someone else pays for it, Democrats are in favor. If it means people can interact with each other independently, Democrats are rigidly opposed.

In California, the war on freelancers might conceivably be ascribed to liberal foolishness and paternalism rather than sheer malice. This does not apply at the national level, now that California has presented us with the inevitable consequences. Biden et al. know full well what they are doing to us.

Alarmingly, the arrogance of potentially throwing millions out of work right before an election suggests that Democrats believe the result of the election is virtually assured.

Belgian Dissident Sentenced to Prison

It used to be only in the eastern part of Europe that dissidents were thrown in prison. Times have changed. Ask Dries Van Langenhove:

Langenhove is a former member of the Belgian parliament, founder of the Flemish Identitarian movement “Schild & Vrienden,” and an influential political dissident in Belgium.

He explains his crime…

An undercover journalist discovered allegedly politically incorrect memes in a private group chat. They were then broadcast on public television in Belgium. A huge police investigation followed which took many years, they raided my house three times. They stole my computer, my smartphone, every electronic device, every piece of paper they took away. And after four or five years of investigation, the only thing that they allegedly found was memes and a picture of a flask of pepper spray.

…and his punishment:

The punishment is one year in jail, an effective jail sentence. It’s a 16,000 euro fine and 10,000 euros in damages, then about an extra 10,000 euros in court fees. And then I also lose my political rights for 10 years, which is the harshest sentence that they could legally give me. And it means that I cannot participate in politics for 10 years, which shows ever more clearly that this is a political case.

His sentence is under appeal, which is why he can still give interviews for now.

Maybe liberty is not dead in the West. Maybe their ham-fisted tyranny will blow up in leftists’ faces:

I think there is a realistic opportunity, a realistic chance of “Vlaams Belang,” a real nationalist party, getting into power. They are right now getting a third of the votes, which is huge. And we also have a moderate nationalist party that gets about 15 to 20 percent of the votes. So together they could form a nationalist government which could light the fire of nationalism all throughout Europe, I hope, because that would turn the center of Europe, Brussels and Flanders, into a nationalist stronghold that really is our dream, our goal, and something I strive towards with all the projects that I am leading with my media channel, my videos. It sounds cliche, but the coming elections may be the most important elections in the history of our country.

As in the USA, at this point it is still largely up to voters. But it won’t be for long if voters do not choose wisely.

Turn in Microaggressors at Glasgow Sex Shop

Washington State isn’t alone. Scotland will also employ Stasi-like tactics by encouraging citizens to rat each other out for committing thoughtcrime:

The controversial Hate Crime and Public Order (Scotland) Act is due to take effect from April 1…

The date is suitable.

While it consolidated some existing hate crime laws, it created a new offence of stirring up hatred against protected characteristics, including age, disability, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.

In practice, that means citizens will be turned in for allegedly disapproving of Islamic colonization or sexual perversion.

One way to report a hate crime is through a third party reporting centre.

A list of these centres on Police Scotland’s website includes Luke and Jacks, a shop in Glasgow which describes itself as “Passionate Purveyors of Pleasure Products.”

Given that a main purpose of such laws is to establish sexual deviants as a superior class that it is literally illegal to offend, a sex shop is as appropriate as the April Fool’s Day launch date. Scotland is governed by fools on behalf of degenerates.

Even if Scotland’s rulers cannot be taken seriously, the tyranny is no joke:

Police Scotland has already said they will fully investigate each complaint and keep a record of “hate incidents” against people even if they not meet the criminal threshold.

These records will be used against the accused in ways that may never be known.

Washington State Follows Stasi Playbook

The Stasi was able to inflict totalitarianism on East Germany with the help of millions of informants. Washington State is taking the same approach:

Substitute Senate Bill 5427 is now on the governor’s desk. Its supposed purpose is “supporting people who have been targeted or affected by hate crimes and bias incidents.” To that end, it establishes “a reporting hotline” and sets up a mechanism for “tracking hate crimes and bias incidents” that will be overseen by the Washington state attorney general’s office.

This goes beyond actual crimes that are punished more severely because the victims are members of favored identity groups. The hotline is to be used to turn in those who say anything members of these groups don’t like.

It also targets reported instances of “a person’s hostile expression of animus toward another person, relating to the other person’s actual or perceived characteristics…” Literally, the hotline gives people a way of informing on others supposedly guilty of thought crimes – or, perhaps, speech crimes.

Image the laughter if someone were to report to Jay Inslee’s Stasi that they perceived animus for being white, male, Christian, an American citizen, heterosexual, to the right of Chairman Mao, et cetera. Thoughtcrime legislation only cuts one way.

The First Amendment used to protect us against such ham-fisted tyranny. But the US Constitution was written by Dead White Males, and is therefore subject to incremental cancelation.

The flaw of all hate crime legislation applies, as noted by State Rep Cyndy Jacobsen (R-Puyallup):

“I think it’s difficult to put things into law which look at the intent of people rather than the actions that they take.”

To the extent our rulers punish us for what they think we think, we are not living in a free country.

The potential scope of abuse with this new hotline is vast – especially since any identifying personal information provided to the hotline is “confidential and exempt from public inspection, copying, or disclosure.” Neither is that information to be included in any written reports. That means if anyone wanted to go after someone whose political opinions they don’t like, they could, conceivably, fabricate a “hate crime” or “bias incident” out of nothing. In fact, this new law, which takes effect on Jan. 1, 2025, exempts so much information from public disclosure that there will be no accountability at all to the people of the Evergreen State. After all, faking hate crimes has become common practice for the progressive left.

Refer to the Hate Hoax List for confirmation.
