Human Composting as Metaphor for Moonbattery

Governor of Washington and single-issue envirofascist presidential candidate Jay Inslee has managed to shove his name into the news with the ideal metaphor for the effect of leftist politics on American citizens. He signed into law a bill that authorizes literally turning people into dirt on behalf of The Planet. Human composting is now a legal alternative to burial and cremation.

Troy Hottle, a fellow at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, told The Seattle Times earlier this year that the method is as “close to the natural process of decomposition [as] you’d assume a body would undergo before we had an industrialized society.”

Therein lies the appeal to enviromoonbats, who indulge in the fantasy that they can forcibly repeal the industrial revolution to minimize the impact of people.

Licensed facilities in the state will offer a “natural organic reduction.” The body is mixed with substances like wood chips into about two wheelbarrows’ worth of soil in a span of several weeks. Loved ones are allowed to keep the soil to spread, just as they might spread the ashes of someone who has been cremated — or even use it to plant vegetables or a tree.

Or they can make mud pies to hurl at conservatives, in case there are no milkshakes available.

If they don’t have any respect for the sanctity of life, what use would they have for dignity in death?

$54 Grand to Purge OK Sign From Yearbook

Hysteria over the OK sign continues:

A school is Chicago will spend tens of thousands of dollars reprinting its 2018-19 yearbook after several photos contained students posing with a hand gesture which has links to white supremacy.

The “links” consist of a deliberate hoax (Operation O-KKK) cooked up by 4chan pranksters, who wanted to see if they could dupe hysterical liberals into thinking that the familiar “okay” gesture actually makes the letters WP for “white power.” The hoax was so wildly successful that some alt righters now use the sign ironically.

Administrators at the Oak Park and River Forest High School announced it will spend a total of $53,794 to replace the 1,750 copies of “Tabula” after staff found 18 photos of students making an upside down OK hand sign.

Your fingers do not form a WP if you make the gesture upside down. An upside-down okay sign is more likely to be an example of the Circle Game, whereby you make the sign over your crotch and then punch people in the arm for looking at it. This is the probable explanation for the sign made by a Cubs fan who was ostentatiously banned from Wrigley Field.

As usual, the liberal authorities are also upside down:

In a letter sent to the community, Superintendent Joylynn Pruitt-Adams said while the seemingly innocuous gesture could be interpreted as students of “various races, ethnicities, genders, and grades” playing what is known as the circle game, the upside down OK hand sign has also become associated with white nationalism and the far-right.

Joylynn Pruitt-Adams, herself a Person of Politically Preferred Pigmentation, says that the sign might subject sacred Students of Color to trauma, which of course “is simply not acceptable.”

She does make a good point though:

“Publishing the photos in question could not only harm students today but could subject students to potentially a lifetime of questions or penalty from colleges, employers, etc.”

This is true enough. The Thought Police recently concluded an inconclusive 4-month investigation into whether Ralph Northam wore blackface in a picture that appeared in a yearbook 35 years ago. At the time, most would have regarded the blackface as just horsing around. Now, even though few care that Northam has called for babies to be murdered after they have been born, he might have been forced to resign as Governor of Virginia if experts could have proven that was him in the blackface.

Follow the trajectory. Thirty-five years from now, people will probably be executed for having made the OK sign.

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.

Turning Texas Blue With Help From the Congo

Circumventing the Electoral College is not the full extent of the Democrat strategy to achieve permanent power. A major objective is to turn Texas blue. That’s what makes this story alarming:

By far the largest ethnic group entering the US right now (and for the last few years) are the DR Congolese.

Obama promised the United Nations we would help absorb the inhabitants of Congolese refugee camps.

A check of the data from October 1, 2014 up through today shows that we took 49,228 of those African ‘refugees’ for resettlement…

Care to guess which state is taking the biggest share of them?

It should be no surprise to learn that Texas is the number one resettlement state for that particular ethnic group receiving 10% of all incoming Congolese.

These colonists imported from the most backward depths of Africa will be here forever, reproducing substantially faster than regular Americans for generation after generation, encouraged to do so by the welfare state. The odds of the Democrat Party getting less than 95% of their vote is slim.

Someone Sets Tory Councilor’s Car on Fire

It doesn’t stop at milkshakes. If you are regarded as an opponent by British leftists, even at the local level, they might set your car on fire, as was done to Councilor Graeme Campbell:

Campbell, who represents Avondale and Stonehouse in Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, said his attacker was trying to kill him because of his work as a politician.

Cllr Campbell, his wife Fiona and 18-year-old son were asleep when the car and house in Fortrose Gardens went up in flames at 1.15am on Monday.

Campbell is a Tory. You didn’t think he was Labour, did you?

The blaze later spread to the house, destroying parts of the property as well as their neighbour’s home.

Too bad about the collateral damage, but you can’t cook an omelette without breaking some eggs, right moonbats?

Los Angeles Garbage Heaps Breed Typhus

No story could be more emblematic of Los Angeles, a city inundated with moonbats, illegal aliens, bums, and degenerates. The garbage situation and therefore the rat situation are getting out of control:

Laying out a welcome mat for derelicts from every corner of the world turns out not to be such a bright idea. Already diseased vermin have infiltrated City Hall, and I’m not referring to liberal bureaucrats.

Typhus is no laughing matter. People die of it.

As noted earlier,

The word “typhus” comes from the Greek word for “hazy,” “describing the state of mind of those infected.” If hazy minds had not already been a problem at City Hall, the epidemic might have been avoided.

Minneapolis: Mogadishu on the Mississippi

Thanks to the massive importation of welfare colonists from arguably the most savage nation in the world, formerly pleasant Minneapolis has been socially reengineered — or to use more politically correct terminology, it has been multiculturally enriched. This is evidenced by an event that occurred Friday night. A mob of eight to 10 “Somali juveniles” wielding hammers attacked random bystanders at the East Bank Light Rail station. Via Alpha News:

A person who claimed on social media to have been at the station when the incident occurred said that the group of males had “hammers and bars,” and that they seemed to be “attacking anyone who looked like they had money or were white.” The witness, who said he isn’t white, said he didn’t want to “[take] on a bunch of dudes with blunt objects,” and that he “hurried an older white lady away” and they walked a few blocks to catch a bus.

How convenient that people in the Minneapolis area can experience the excitement of living in Africa without ever leaving home.

Needless to say, the story has not received much press.

This is just a foretaste of their plan for our future. Refer to South Africa for further details.

California Is Criminalizing Undercover Journalism

If a society becomes sufficiently corrupt, you are not punished for committing crimes, but for revealing them. This spells trouble for David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who shared with the world the illegal body parts trafficking committed by the lavishly taxpayer-subsidized abortion chain Planned Parenthood by releasing the Center for Medical Progress videos. The case against them for angering such a politically powerful entity is moving forward:

Democratic California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Planned Parenthood supporter and grateful recipient of Planned Parenthood donations, will lead the prosecution against the people who embarrassed Planned Parenthood. Before Becerra, it was now-Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) who received money from the abortion giant and expressed support for the abortion giant, all while pursuing legal penalties against the abortion giant’s enemies.

…as readers may recall.

Supposedly, the butchers at Planned Parenthood have been wronged because the undercover journalists violated their privacy by recording them surreptitiously. If this is now illegal, it effectively means undercover journalism is illegal — which is great news for pillars of the corrupt liberal establishment like Planned Parenthood.

California has achieved a Third World level of tyranny and moral degeneration.

AOC Reveals Root Cause of Arab–Israeli Conflict

No wonder both the political and propaganda wings of the Democrat Party hail Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as its future. She has ingeniously uncovered the root cause of Muslims attempting to eradicate the Jewish presence in the Middle East for the past 1,400 years.

Some thought it was due to Mohammad hating Jews because they laughed at him when he tried to get them to accept him as a prophet. Some thought the conflict was rooted in Islamic doctrine, according to which any territory that has been conquered by Muslims must be ruled by Muslims forever more.

But AOC reveals the truth about the Arab–Israeli conflict. Turns out, it’s Republicans’ fault for pitting Muslims and Jews against each other, instead of siding with Muslims like Democrats do:

AOC’s insight also sheds light on why cats and dogs don’t get along, and possibly why fire and water don’t mix.

Worms Turn in Murrieta

This ought to raise hair on the back of liberal establishmentarians’ necks. From Murrieta, midway between San Diego and Los Angeles:

An unknown number of migrants were recently flown into Murrieta’s Border Patrol facility and some in the community were quick to stand in front of the gates to let them know they’re not welcome to stay.

The “migrants” are illegal aliens. It is the federal government’s basic duty to keep unlawful invaders out of the country. Instead, it distributes them from sea to shining sea.

Here’s the really scary part:

“We can be called a racist and we’ll just smile. Because we don’t care,” said [Murrieta resident Bob] Kowell.

They don’t cringe and cower at the word “racist”? The media just experienced that chill a lion tamer would get up his spine at the realization that the lion isn’t afraid of his whip anymore.

National Popular Vote Bill Passes Nevada Senate

Democrat ideas are not awful at a merely superficial level. They will wreck the system of government laid out in the Constitution, which is the most stable system the world has seen over the past few centuries. Democrats are serious about destroying the Electoral College, which establishes a balance of power between urban and rural parts of the country, allowing even states with small populations to have a say in how it is run. Yesterday, Democrats pushed a National Popular Vote bill through the Nevada Senate:

Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote.

If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

If a critical mass is reached, the Electoral College would essentially be rendered null and void. The winner of the national popular vote would be the winner, individual states be damned.

Democrats support this because the Republican candidate won in 2000 and 2016 while losing the popular vote. Their solution to this perceived problem is effectively to disenfranchise Flyover Country.

Big cities are characterized by corruption, excessive regulation, excessive taxation, widespread welfare dependence, cultural decay, and high minority populations. The Democrat Party is the urban party. It does well in states with large urban areas. Without the Electoral College, these would be the only states that matter.

Leftist groups like Common Cause, Indivisible and Public Citizen cheered the Nevada vote.

That should give you an idea how pernicious it is. The bill enables California and New York to help themselves to Nevada’s votes, regardless of which candidate Nevadans vote for.

Imagine an America in which people like Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo are elected president every time. The Cold Civil War would heat up quickly as people who don’t live in densely populated blue states realize that they no longer have a vote — that they are ruled, not governed.

Fined $50 per Day for Flying US Flag

Patriotism appears to be a crime in Statesville, North Carolina, where an RV dealership is getting fined because bureauweenies disapprove of the size of the US flag it flies:

Camping World posted a message to its Facebook page on Saturday saying the city has filed an injunction against Camping World, fining the company $50 per day going back to Oct. 15, 2018. That totals nearly $11,000.

The flag is 40′ × 80′. Bureaucrats forbid it on the grounds that flags within 100 feet of a highway can be no larger than 25′ × 40′.

Camping World flies its full-sized flags at over 200 locations throughout the country including elsewhere in North Carolina. Apparently only Statesville has a problem with it. An attempt to amend the ordinance failed.

“I don’t care if it goes to $500 a day. It’s not coming down,” Marcus Lemonis, CEO and chairman of Camping World and Gander RV, said.

That’s the spirit.

Missing Link Found Between Dems and Marxists

Congratulations, moonbats. You bullied a formerly First World country into slitting its own wrists by turning power over to this. From a recent speech by Elias Sekgobelo Magashule, Secretary General of sainted communist terrorist Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress:

Comrades, we must be resolute and steadfast! We are heading for troubled times, and we are surely coming for what is ours!

By “what is ours” they mean wealth that was created by others. According to the depraved doctrine of leftism, wealth properly belongs to those who did not create it.

Our determination is to foster a new momentum for the fundamental Radical Economic Transformation (RET) of our socio-economic landscape.

That means full throttle forward from a welfare state under which fewer work than collect handouts toward absolute Marxist slavery to the state.

Our mandate is to expropriate land without compensation, our mandate is to nationalize the Reserve Bank, our mandate is transform the financial institutions and banks in order to serve the needs of our people, our mandate is to implement national health insurance, our mandate is to implement the minimum wage, our mandate is to stop retrenchment of the working class, our mandate is to stop privatization of state own [sic] enterprises (SOE’s), our mandate to achieve free and universal education, our mandate is the transfer of the political and socio-economic power into the hands of the overwhelming majority of our people, Africans in particular, and the black people in general.

The missing link between Vladimir Lenin and the modern Democratic Party has been found.

In South Africa, the ANC is relatively moderate, compared to the more overtly communist and bloodthirsty Economic Freedom Fighters, Black First Land First, and Land Party.

Everyone can see what is coming. Anyone with open eyes could have seen it from 1994.

According to the latest Opinium poll for the Observer newspaper, Farage’s newly formed party is on 34% of the vote ahead of the May 23 election that Britain is participating in because it failed to leave the European Union as expected at the end of March.

Pope Francis Denounces National Sovereignty

Pope Francis has blessed us with a revelation. It won’t come to many as a surprise. He reveals that the global warming hoax is a power grab intended to establish global governance at the expense of independent nations:

Pope Francis said that a “special authority legally and concordantly constituted” was necessary to facilitate the implementation of new climate change policies.

He went on to demand that power be transferred from nation states to “intergovernmental institutions that manage their common interests.”

By intergovernmental he means supranational — like the EU and worse yet the UN. If nations continue to be sovereign, they might protect the interests of the people who live in them. This would impede the far left’s agenda regarding centralizing power and eradicating capitalism in the name of the global warming hoax, as well as blending white majority countries into the Third World.

New York May Use Unemployment Insurance to Subsidize Strikes

In New York, leftism and corruption reach their apotheosis and blend together so it hard to say where one leaves off and the other begins. For example, leftist politicians and unions, working in sync as usual, are on the verge of usurping unemployment insurance and using it to subsidize strikes, rather than as emergency assistance to those who are jobless through no fault of their own.

Even in New York, strikers have to be out of work at least 8 weeks before they can receive unemployment benefits…

But on May 1, New York’s state Senate voted to let strikers get benefits one week after walking off the job—essentially putting them on equal footing with those who are laid off.

May 1, the communist holiday. Some coincidence.

If Gov. Andrew Cuomo signs this bill, he’ll effectively be using New York’s unemployment-insurance program to subsidize union strikes, upending the balance of power between workers and management.

That would force employers to pay people who refuse to work. Yet again we see that leftism is where tyranny and insanity intersect.

Subsidizing strikes will of course produce more strikes, adding to the dysfunctional business-hostile climate that has the productive class bailing out of New York.

The subsidy, like all pernicious things inflicted by Big Government, would grow:

New York is already increasing unemployment benefits, scrapping its $450-a-week cap in favor of a formula set to rise each year until 2026, when recipients will get up to 50% of the state’s average weekly wage, which is currently about $1,401.

Staying in business while paying people to march around with picket signs instead of working won’t be easy.

This would save Big Unions a fortune. That’s where the corruption comes in.

Many unions provide members with strike benefits to make up for lost wages… U.S. labor unions have paid out more than $149 million in strike benefits in just the past three years, federal records show.

Letting strikers collect unemployment benefits would relieve unions of much of those costs, freeing money up for other purposes—such as campaign contributions.

It is still possible for employers to escape from New York. But an idea this bad can’t escape the attention of Bernie Sanders for long. Once he demands this be imposed at the national level, the other Democrat candidates will launch into their habitual me too chorus.

Mother of Trayvon Martin Enters Politics

Karl Marx was right for a change when he said that “history repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.”

One tragedy was that after Carolyn McCarthy lost her husband during the race-motivated murder of six defenseless commuters by Jamaican immigrant Colin Ferguson in the Long Island Rail Road shooting, she entered Congress and served from 1997 to 2015 on the single issue of rendering us all as helpless as her husband by attacking our constitutional right to bear arms. Her cluelessness on the topic of firearms is legendary.

Now for the farce. Apparently while casing homes to burglarize, Trayvon Martin was killed in self-defense by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, whose head he was bashing against a sidewalk. The mother of Trayvon Martin is running for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission:

Sybrina Fulton, who has been a gun control advocate since her son’s death and who campaigned for Hillary Clinton, announced her candidacy on Saturday, according to the Miami Herald.

If worshipers of Saint Trayvon are as prevalent in the Miami area as they were in the “mainstream” media, she is a cinch to get elected and then move on to higher office. She may help us to achieve a utopia in which even if maniacs like Colin Ferguson will still have guns, neighborhood watch captains like George Zimmerman won’t.
