Virginia Gun Rally Gives the Lie to Liberal Narrative

Bad news for the MSM. Despite the hype and dire warnings, the supposed white supremacists who rallied in Virginia yesterday in defense of our precious and endangered Second Amendment rights were peaceful, as law-abiding gun-owners tend to be.

Impressively, there was only one arrest among 22,000 attendees. Mikaela Beschler, aged 21, was arrested for refusing to take a bandanna off her face.

This montage illustrates how the MSM misinformed its audience regarding the rally:

Here are a few of the “white nationalists” who had liberal propagandists clutching their pearls:

The media openly longed for another Charlottesville, where white nationalists actually were present in significant numbers and a leftist counterprotester was killed when violence broke out. If there had been any violence in Richmond yesterday, it might have made the MSM strategy of duplicitously conflating gun rights with white supremacism more effective. Better luck next time, propagandists!

A news media that consistently and deliberately misinforms the public serves no constructive purpose. Ours does so with the explicit intention of denying us a constitutional right. The “mainstream” media isn’t just useless and wrong; it is malevolent.

Tampons in the Men’s Room at Oregon State

On college campuses, the inmates are running the asylum. Consequently, tampons will be provided in the men’s room at Oregon State University.

Via the Daily Barometer:

The Memorial Union and Student Experience Center will be including free feminine hygiene products and installing hygiene bins in all restrooms, regardless of gender. The installation will take place this winter term.

Both the MU and SEC, along with all other student-fee funded buildings were chosen by the Associated Students of Oregon State University to apply the initiative to their restrooms. According to the ASOSU Queer Affairs Coordinator, Julian Chu, this decision was made to fulfill the needs of people that have a menstruation without discriminating by gender and those who cannot afford personal hygiene products.

They can afford to go to college, but they cannot afford the tampons that they don’t need anyway because they aren’t women. So they are forced to pay through fees for tampons in the men’s room.

Putting ideology before everything takes moonbats to some crazy places.

ASOSU vice president Kylie Boenisch proclaims that students must be forced to pay for free tampons in the men’s room because,

“Products for other normal bodily functions are free in our everyday life, such as toilet paper, tissues, etc. Access to products is not a privilege, it’s a right.”

This is a reminder that if you give people anything for free, they will soon come to believe that they are entitled to it. Then they will demand more.

“What we hope to achieve in regards [sic] to applying it to all buildings and having the end goal be where OSU pays for these products otherwise students will still be paying for these menstrual products,” Chu said.

Spoken like a true socialist. Students must be forced to pay for free tampons, the vast majority of which won’t even be used if they are put in the men’s room; otherwise students will have to pay for tampons.

In utopia, everyone will be forced to pay for everything, so that no one will have to pay for anything. Tampons in the men’s room give an idea of how wisely our shrinking wealth will be allocated.

Why would anyone think tampon dispensers are needed in the men’s room? Because according to the liberal ideology prevailing on campus, gender is an arbitrary distinction. Men can have periods too. Progressives literally believe this.

If those living in the alternate moonbat universe of higher education can be that astonishingly wrong about something so basic and obvious, you have to wonder what lunacy they are learning in their publicly subsidized classes.

Restaurant Founded on Moonbattery Lasts Less Than 1 Month

No matter how many times the lesson is taught, people keep needing to learn it for themselves. Get woke, go broke:

A Lower East Side [NYC] eatery owned by a non-profit touting staff diversity and fair wages is closing its doors after less than a month — informing its chef by text that everyone’s out of a job, the worker said Sunday.

Colors — which was opened in 2006 by surviving Windows of the World employees after 9/11 — had closed in 2017.

It then tried to stage a comeback, opening again Dec. 23 with promises of help from Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC), a nonprofit restaurant lobbying organization focused on employing a diverse collective at fair wages.

Favoring “diversity” over meaningful qualifications and refusing to let the market set wages work great in the faculty lounge, but won’t keep a functioning business afloat. Moonbattery can’t make the numbers add up. That’s why socialism has to be imposed at gunpoint.

From Content of Character to Antiwhite Hatred

Martin Luther King is best remembered for saying that people should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. Yet he is posthumously exploited to represent an ideology that takes a diametrically opposite stance by subjecting whites to unrelenting (self-)hatred.

This noxious ideology has strayed so far from respecting character that we see a presidential candidate of conspicuously low character calling for genocide by displacement. If a Japanese politician declared that Japanese people should be made a minority in Japan, his career would be over. Yet among Democrats, Joe Biden is regarded as a moderate.

Mark Dice demonstrates how pervasive liberal racism is getting:

How To End White Privilege

Brandon Tatum lays total waste to the concept of “white privilege.” Unfortunately, despite the title of the video, he does not explain how to make it go away:

True enough, the concept of white privilege is BS. It does not benefit blacks, but rather encourages them to wallow in a victim mentality that results in underachievement. However, so long as Cultural Marxists can use this bogus notion to tear the country apart, it isn’t going anywhere.

Elizabeth Warren Shoots Down Her Own Candidacy

In case anyone does not understand that Elizabeth Warren would be a lousy choice for president, she drives the point home herself by asking,

“How could the American people want someone who lies to them?”

Maybe she is running out of gas and is ready to step aside so that Bernie can monopolize the Marxist-Leninist vote. Not even a wealthy Democrat elitist could be so out of touch as not to realize that we have noticed her constant lying. Does she not know that people sniggeringly call her Lie-awatha due to the preposterous falsehood that she is an Indian, which she used to advance her career?

As Kyle Smith noted last year,

It is by now well established that Elizabeth Warren is a serial liar. She lied about her parents having to elope because of racism against her mother, who was white. She lied about being the first nursing mother to take the bar exam in New Jersey (which doesn’t keep such records). She lied about being a “single mom” when she met her second and present husband (she was still married, and had not yet filed for divorce). She lied about the death of Michael Brown, which was not a murder. Only recently, after more than 30 years, has she stopped lying about being a Cherokee and a woman of color. …

Warren has been telling a story about how a boss supposedly fired her from a teaching gig after discerning at a glance that she was pregnant. Her own previous telling was otherwise: She walked away from that job.

She also lied about her children attending public school and about her father being a janitor.

A compulsive liar like Elizabeth Warren never stops to ask herself how easy it will be for others to debunk what she is saying. A recent example:

On Friday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed to be “the only one running for president [who has] actually been on the executive side.” This is clearly false given that former Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE) was . . . well, vice president. Not to mention that Michael Bloomberg (D-NY), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and Pete Buttigieg (D-IN) are all former mayors.

Also not to mention that Donald Trump has the ultimate executive experience of having served as President of the USA. Warren is actually the only major candidate who does not have executive experience, even counting Amy Klobuchar.

Warren’s lies are brazen and incessant. “How could the American people want someone who lies to them?” is the punchline to the tasteless joke that is her candidacy.

Colorado Officially Alters Reality

If you want to deny objective reality, government is glad to help out by providing bogus documentation — so long as the pretense advances liberal social engineering objectives.

From the Washington Examiner:

A law that allows people to change their birth certificate to reflect their gender identity without a court order, surgery, or a doctor’s note, just took effect in Colorado on Jan. 1.

Gov. Jared Polis, Colorado’s first openly gay governor, signed the bill into law in May. The law allows transgender and nonbinary residents of Colorado to change their name on their birth certificate to reflect their new gender identity. They can also revise their gender to “M,” “F,” or, my personal favorite, “X.”

Reality is officially under siege. If it advances the agenda, they will soon allow us to change our parents and place of birth too.

Big Government propping up their grotesque delusions will not help the sexually insane to get the help they need. But this isn’t about helping lunatics; it’s about exploiting them.

The bill is named Jude’s Law, after a transgender student who started testifying at the Capitol in support of the proposal at just 9-years-old.

It is unlikely that a 9-year-old would on his own initiative launch a legal jihad to have his actual sex officially reversed. Social engineers also exploit children.

Educrats Enraged by “Virginity Rocks” Shirt

We want kids to grow up with a healthy appreciation of the right of free speech, but some notions are too offensive to allow in public schools — like the idea that virginity is good.

KMOV reports from Missouri:

A St. Charles County couple said the Wentzville School District threatened to suspend their son if he wore his ‘Virginity Rocks’ sweatshirt to class again.

A social studies teacher pulled 13-year-old seventh grader Londyn Piglowski out of class and escorted him, possibly by the ear, to the principal’s office, where he was commanded to wear the sweatshirt inside out or face punishment. Later he was threatened with suspension if he dared wear it again.

The district’s dress code does not allow students to wear clothing with statements advocating immoral, illegal, sexual, or violent behavior.

In practice, this appears to mean that students are not allowed to contradict what they are told in their sex ed classes.

Let’s let the educrats explain themselves. From an official statement:

The District’s policy regarding student dress provides opportunities for our administrators to address student attire that is potentially disruptive to the educational environment.

If you have been following the descent of public schools into unmitigated moonbattery, you can see why encouraging adolescents not to have sex would be seen as “disruptive.”

Maybe the educrats were just trying to nip Londyn’s problematic attitude in the bud before it could escalate into full-blown thoughtcrime like this:

Meanwhile, a nurse was ‘cancelled’ and harassed by a hate mob who tried to get her fired after she suggested that young people could avoid STD’s by not having pre-marital promiscuous sex.

Drag Queen Speaks Out Against Drag Queen Story Hour

Even a drag queen is appalled by the moral turpitude of liberal social engineers who subject innocent children to drag queen story hours to advance their warped sociopolitical agenda. In the video below, drag queen Kitty Demure makes some points that should be obvious to everyone, including that drag culture is highly sexualized and for that reason alone totally inappropriate for children. Also, it does not do the LGBT community any favors to reinforce in the public’s mind an association with sexually corrupting children.

As noted at The Post Millennial,

The American Library Association supports Drag Queen Story Hour, stating that they have a “commitment to combating marginalization and underrepresentation within the communities served by libraries through increased understanding of the effects of historical exclusion.” But drag queens are not a protected class, they are not marginalized, they are performers plying their trade. Drag queens are not underrepresented and in need of protection by librarians.

As always with Cultural Marxism, this is not about uplifting the oppressed; it is about tearing down our culture, with no regard for who gets hurt.

Destigmatizing Pedophilia

Progressive social engineers accomplished an amazing feat by mainstreaming homosexuality, which was nearly universally regarded as repugnant for centuries, in a short period of time with a blitzkrieg propaganda campaign. The same may be accomplished for pedophilia. The campaign is already gathering momentum.

This April 18, liberal Baltimore will host a workshop entitled, “Authenticity in the Face of Stigma: Challenges for Clinicians and Minor-Attracted People.”

Just as homosexuals must now be referred to as “gays,” pedophiles are to be called “minor-attracted people” or “MAPs.” What’s in a name? Plenty, or liberals would not dictate which words we can use with never-ending updates to the Newspeak Dictionary.

The goals of the workshop are for participants to:

• Become aware of the numerous ways stigma impacts the lives, relationships, and careers of MAPs, clinicians, and researchers.

• Learn about ways to effectively manage stigma and its effects.

That is, they will learn that pedophiles MAPs are sacred victims deserving of sympathy, just like homosexuals gays. Then they will learn how to reduce the stigma against this “orientation.”

Reducing stigma is a euphemistic reference to progressive objective #1: erode moral standards.

Progressives have consciously pursued this objective with welfare and single motherhood, with predictably pernicious results. Lately, they have been achieving it with drug use, mental illness, and sexual perversion, largely by sanctifying homelessness, transsexuality, and homosexuality.

That which shame once encouraged people to overcome, they are now egged on to wallow in with belligerent pride, while demanding special rights and privileges. It would be hard to imagine a moral virus more certain to destroy a civilization than liberalism.

NBC News: Voting Republican Is Unconstitutional

The political radicalism and antiwhite racial hostility that prevail on college campuses have infiltrated the “mainstream” media. On Friday, NBC News published a piece promoting the views of University of Baltimore School of Law visiting professor Terry Smith, who holds that voting for Republicans is “racist” and that Big Government can and should step in to prevent it. Hold on for some authoritarian insanity:

Rather than excuse racist voters or try to figure out how to live with their choices, [Smith] argues that racist voting is not just immoral, but illegal. The government, Smith says, has the ability, and the responsibility, to address it. …

Smith argues that it’s in line with the Constitution and with years of court rulings. For example, Smith points out that racist appeals in union elections are illegal and that an election in which one side uses racist appeals can be invalidated by the National Labor Relations Board.

Therefore, the same should hold true in other elections when liberals decide that their opponents are “racists.”

According to Smith, voters who pull the levers to harm black people are violating the Constitution. If the Constitution means that overt racist appeals undermine the legality of union elections, it stands to reason that they undermine the legality of other elections, as well.

Trump made racist appeals by mentioning crime and by promising to defend the US border from foreign invasion. Therefore, his election was unconstitutional.


Because the majority of white voters in the South vote Republican, and because they outnumber black voters, there isn’t a single Democratic senator from the Deep South other than Doug Jones in Alabama, who may well lose his seat in 2020.

What to do about it? Creating racially gerrymandered Senate “districts” might help. But the main thing is to acquire sufficient power. Then you can do any damn thing you want. Smith advises Democrats to get their claws on that power by packing courts — up to and including the Supreme Court — with extra judges who would do whatever it takes to nullify the votes of deplorable racists.

NBC News concludes:

It’s difficult to address injustice, however, if you’re unwilling to say injustice exists. Politicians and pundits, Republican and Democratic alike, have been unwilling to reprimand voters or hold them accountable. But voters are not well-intentioned innocents who are helplessly manipulated by malevolent leaders. They make important decisions as constitutional actors, for which they have moral responsibility. Racist voting isn’t an accident. It’s a choice that may violate the principles of our Constitution and our legal system. We should say so, and then we should find ways to reduce the harm it causes.

“A republic,” said Benjamin Franklin, “if you can keep it.” We will keep it only so long as we can defend it against the leftists who control the “mainstream” media.
