Ontario Premier Subjected to Racism

How awful. The black liberal Ontario Premier was heckled by right-wingers who denounced him as a “f***ing ni**er” right in the legislative chamber. The opposition leader excused the behavior by bleating that “emotions are running high.” Why was this hardly reported in the media?

Wait, I know why. Because I got everything backward:

Student activists attempted to unfurl a protest banner in the legislative chamber at Queen’s Park during the first sitting of the year. As they were stopped by security, one young woman erupted with expletives.

“[Ontario Premier] Doug Ford can kiss my a–,” she yelled.

Then the young black woman followed up with a racial slur.

“You’re a f—–g cracker! You know that?” she yelled at the premier.

One reason left-wing students are not fond of Ford is that he referred to their activities as “crazy Marxist nonsense” in a fundraising email. Speaking of which, the rally at the legislature featured the following:

There was a Che Guevara flag, banners from the Young Communist League and a Marxist club, as well.

Che Guevara (aka the Butcher of la Cabaña) served as chief executioner for a communist dictator.

[New Democratic Party] leader Andrea Horwath … refused to condemn or say anything negative about students using profanity and racial slurs in the legislature.

“There’s no doubt emotions are running high, students are really worried,” Horwath said.

Students must lay awake at night, whimpering with fear that the maple leaf will not be replaced by the hammer and sickle quickly enough to suit them.

When asked directly about the propriety of calling the Ontario Premier a “f***ing cracker” in the legislative chamber, Horwath refused to comment.

But there really is endemic racism against sacred black people. People drop the n-bomb right in Hollywood movies. In the trailer below for Long Shot, a black male is typically characterized as a hapless dork, just like in TV commercials. When he falls down the stairs and slides across the floor on his face, jeering white people shout, “Ni**er down!”

Or maybe I got all that backward too:

Firefighters Must Train with Ladders <2 Meters Tall

In utopia, everyone will always be safe — even firefighters. Progress has been made in that regard in Australia:

Firefighters at airports have been banned from climbing ladders more than two meters high during training in case they fall and hurt themselves.

Airservices Australia chief fire officer Glenn Wood confirms it:

‘We take the safety of our people very seriously and there is a risk of fall from height,’ he said.

I hope the firefighters are not forced to train with heavy equipment. Not only could that result in tiredness, it might also constitute sex discrimination. Bad enough that New York firefighters have been subjected to racial discrimination by having to take entrance exams that require intelligence.

Back in Australia,

Airport firefighters have also been banned from using power saws – and now have to wait for local firefighters to bring different tools if they need to cut through material.

Maybe they should equip the firefighters with Nerf axes so that that their self-esteem doesn’t suffer. It could be hurtful for them to think they are not trusted with tools of the trade.

You remind me of the Siberian hunting spider, which adopts a highly convincing limp in three of its eight legs in order to attract its main prey, the so-called Samaritan squirrel, which takes pity on the spider, and then the spider jumps on it and injects the paralyzing venom, while the squirrel remains bafflingly philosophical about the whole thing. Not to be confused with the Ukrainian hunting spider, which actually has got a limp and is, as such, completely harmless, and a little bit bitter about the whole thing. - Bill Bailey

Peanuts Fall Victim to Tyranny of the Minority

Repression in the name of the minority is at the heart of moonbattery. This is bad news for the many who like having traditional snacks available at the ballpark:

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack? Not anymore at Dunkin’ Donuts Park, where the Hartford (Connecticut) Yard Goats play.

This season, the professional sports venue that hosts the Class AA affiliate of the Colorado Rockies is going completely – and permanently – peanut-free.

They even banned peanut toppings on sundaes.

It isn’t just a minor league baseball team. Southwest Airlines has stopped serving peanuts. This is sheer virtue signaling; passengers can bring their own, so it is not a guaranteed peanut-free environment anyway. But then, the whole issue is sheer virtue signaling. That won’t stop liberals from eventually abolishing peanuts altogether.

Most people like peanuts; however, a tiny percentage of the population is allergic to them. That means utopia will be peanut-free. For those who love peanuts, it is too bad things are not the other way around. If most people were allergic to peanuts and only a tiny minority liked them anyway, peanuts would be mandatory.

Bloomingdale’s Removes T-Shirts Offensive to Journalists

Walmart and Dillard’s are not the only stores scrambling to comply with the demands of imperious moonbats. Bloomingdale’s just pulled its Fake News t-shirts after they were denounced as offensive to journalists:

The defining trait of a society that has succumbed to totalitarianism is eager and obsequious compliance with bullies.

Suggests Legal Insurrection,

If you don’t want to be called fake news then don’t put out fake news.

But it’s so much easier to play the victim and demand silence from your critics.
