War on Heritage Is Not About Slavery

You have probably figured out that the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party (i.e., Black Lives Matter/Antifa) is not destroying statues of George Washington over slavery, which had been standard practice since before recorded history during Washington’s time. Ami Horowitz provides confirmation:

Moonbats don’t hate George Washington because he owned slaves. They hate him because he is the Father of America. Mohammad was a maniacal warlord who founded a death cult that is implacably hostile to America, so it was fine for him to own slaves.

Mind this was filmed in Manhattan, where nearly 3,000 Americans were murdered in the name of Mohammad in 2001. You can count on leftists to be reflexively treasonous, and to side with evil and against good.

NBC News Throws Affirmative Action Into Overdrive

If you think NBC News if far left now, wait to see the effects of throwing Affirmative Action into overdrive:

A New York Times media columnist posted an internal email from NBC News chief Cesar Conde on Twitter, wherein Conde explains to employees that the network would be formulating an action plan to achieve the goal of making “50% of our New organization employees be women and 50% of our total workforce be people of color.”

Conde presides over NBC News, MSNBC, and CNBC.

This is not a good time for white men to be seeking employment, particularly in the many sectors of the economy dominated by moonbats. Hiring them is racist and sexist, as surely as the concept of merit is a thought crime.

Looking for systemic racism? Here it is.

Open Thread

Liberals have a new wish every time their latest wish is granted. Conservatives should make them spell out their principles and ideals. Instead of doing this, conservatives allow liberals to pursue incremental goals without revealing their ultimate destination. So, thanks to the negligence of their opponents, liberals control the terms of every debate by always demanding 'more' while never defining 'enough.' The predictable result is that they always get more, and it's never enough. - Joseph Sobran

Biden Describes Police as “the Enemy,” Calls for Defunding

The idea of running the senile husk of a corrupt swamp creature like Biden was probably that they could pass him off as a moderate who would not threaten the lives of regular Americans. However, over the past few months, the radical left has solidified control over the Democrat Party, so the former strategy is out the window in favor of a new approach: turn all dials all the way to the left, and count on leftist control of the media and cancel culture intimidation to gaslight and bully the masses into compliance.

Watch in amazement as someone expecting to be elected President of the United States describes local law enforcement as “the enemy” and vows to defund it, even as violent crime rates have been shooting through the stratosphere in cities run by his fellow Democrats. This is from an interview with moonbat activist Ady Barkan, whose voice has to be synthesized because he has ALS:

Note that if the police are the enemy, that would mean the rioting mobs of black supremacists who have been tearing down our country are friends. They aren’t our friends, obviously, but they are Biden’s.

Charged With Hate Crime for Covering Black Lives Matter Eyesore

In a land run by moonbats, no good deed goes unpunished. But if you desecrate and destroy the statues of great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Christopher Columbus, the chances of legal repercussions are remote, because liberal local authorities will hold off the police and even cheer you on. In Martinez, California, this cheering took the form of authorities allowing the now menacing words “BLACK LIVES MATTER” to be painted across a road to make explicit that the streets belong to rioters and vandals. When a pair of patriots stepped forward to clean up this disgraceful disfigurement of the northern California town, they received punishment that is rarely forthcoming for anti-American BLM/Antifa goons.

From the San Franfreakshow Comical, via MSN:

The Contra Costa County District Attorney’s office on Tuesday filed misdemeanor charges against Nicole Anderson, 42, and David Nelson, 53, both of Martinez. Each faces charges of violating another person’s civil rights, vandalism, and posession [sic] of tools to commit vandalism. If convicted, each could face up to a year in county jail.

Lest anyone miss that the ultra-left has been politicizing law enforcement (thus the current War on Police), the DA spouted the corrosive propaganda of Black Lives Matter as she made the announcement.

“We must address the root and byproduct of systemic racism in our country,” Contra Costa County District Attorney Diana Becton said. “The Black Lives Matter movement is an important civil rights cause that deserves all of our attention. The mural completed last weekend was a peaceful and powerful way to communicate the importance of Black lives in Contra Costa County and the country.”

The pair were captured on a now-viral video where the woman, later identified as Anderson, dumped a bucket of black paint and began to roll over freshly-painted yellow block letters spelling out Black Lives Matter in front of the Wakefield Taylor Courthouse on July 4. A man, identified as Nelson, said on camera that racism is “a lie” and that “all lives matter.” Both people appear to be white.

You can see why authorities feel the need to throw the book at them.

Looks like thoughtcrime is rife in Martinez:

On Tuesday, Martinez police were searching for a person who illegally painted “White Lives Matter” in white letters just a couple miles away from the downtown “Black Lives Matter” mural.

Needless to say, authorities will never approve a “mural” stating that white lives matter. Yet we are preposterously asked to believe that systemic racism works in favor of whites rather than against them.

Calling the good deed a “hate crime” allows for harsher punishment.

Literally Rejecting That 2 + 2 = 4

George Orwell was righter than he knew when he equated freedom with the right to say that 2 + 2 = 4. We may literally lose this right when it is up to people like Brittany Marshall.

Via Summit News:

Brittany Marshall’s tweet went viral after she claimed during the course of a discussion about racism, “Nope the idea of 2 + 2 equaling 4 is cultural and because of western imperialism/colonization, we think of it as the only way of knowing.”

Marshall, who includes her pronouns in her bio, lists her occupation as “teacher, scholar, social justice change agent” and apparently is studying for a PhD at Rutgers.

Brittany may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, but she has learned her lessons well at Rutgers. Reality itself must be subordinated to liberal ideology. Otherwise, that ideology will collapse under the weight of its own falseness and absurdity.

This is why the news media uses feminine pronouns to refer to cross-dressing men. It is why mentioning race and IQ in the same sentence might cost you your job. They are establishing a world in which 2 + 2 ≠ 4.

Those who insist that 2 + 2 = 4 can easily be silenced by calling them racist on the grounds that math itself is racist, as has already been determined (see here, here, here, and here).

Jonathan Lopez, Political Candidate, Joins Hate Hoax List

One of the many privileges enjoyed by Persons of Color is that if their ambitions are not getting enough traction, they can promote themselves by pretending to be victimized by hate. The downside is that, as Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace learned, hoaxes are sometimes revealed, unmasking the perpetrator as a contemptible fraud. Today’s case in point is Oregon’s Jonathan Lopez, a candidate for Umatilla County Commissioner.

[Hermiston Police] Chief Jason Edmiston tells KEPR-TV News that the criminal investigation for second-degree intimidation due to the racist, hate-filled letter received by Jonathan Lopez on June 23 has been closed. The matter will be referred this week to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s Office for initiating a false report – a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.

Edmiston says the investigation has shown that Jonathan Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media. The end result is a verbal and written admission by Lopez that the letter was fabricated.

If only all hate hoaxes could end with such a definitive debunking. Most of them cannot be added to the Hate Hoax List, because although there is a 99.9% chance it is a hoax, you don’t know for sure.

In one line from the letter, the author said, “Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other (expletive) Mexicans in the area!” The letter ends by stating, “Sincerely, America!”

A hateful, racist place, that America.

Don’t be too hard on Lopez. After all,

Lopez told the East Oregonian that he “never meant to mislead” and intended to talk with Edmiston about racism, with the letter as an example.

It’s an example, all right — an example of the phoniness of the liberal establishment’s racist oppression narrative.

“I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” Lopez said, according to the East Oregonian.

Cultural Marxist moonbattery has been spiraling out throughout the country. That’s what happens when lies are allowed to take on a life of their own.

Ilhan Omar Calls for “Dismantling” America

Somali refugee Ilhan Omar has been making her hatred of the country that took her in obvious for some time. Riding high on the ongoing tsunami of anti-American moonbattery, she has upped the ante by explicitly calling for its destruction. She demands the “dismantling” of our “economy and political systems,” presumably to clear the way for the race-based Marxism of Black Lives Matter.

Shrieks Omar:

“We can’t stop at criminal justice reform or police reform for that matter. We are not merely fighting to tear down the systems of oppression in the criminal justice system. We are fighting to tear down systems of oppression that exist in housing, in education, in health care, in employment, in the air we breathe.”

Everything American represents oppression, even sectors dominated by her fellow leftists, like education; even the air, which presumably must be nationalized along with everything else so that people like her can control it.

Hold on, she’s still screaming:

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritizes profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequity. So we cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

As we have learned from the transgender push, every word progressives speak is a lie, even pronouns. Where does she get the gall to say “our”? The Marxist Muslim Somali Omar is not an American in any meaningful sense, as her hostility to this country makes clear. She is the diametric opposite of an American.

Razing the entire American system will require repealing or at the very least neutering the Constitution. This is why the media now demonizes the Founding Fathers.

Pushback Begins

The first counterpunch could go down as the whack heard round the world:

Let’s hope the spirited blonde doesn’t get expelled for fighting back instead of cowering in submission.

More pushback, from Gerard Baker:

At the end of the 20th century, the U.S. had won World War II and the Cold War, liberated half the planet from history’s most dehumanizing ideologies, advanced a free-market capitalism that had led more humans out of poverty than any economic system ever devised, and given the world the richest bounty of intellectual, cultural and scientific capital since the Enlightenment. Americans could—and did—look at themselves and the nation they had built with immense pride.

Twenty years later much of the country’s political leadership, almost its entire academic establishment, most of the people who control its news and cultural output, and a good deal of its corporate elite view America as an irredeemably malignant force for enslavement and oppression, a uniquely evil power founded on an ideology of racial supremacy. These Jacobins demand that Americans repudiate most of the nation’s history, tear down the icons of its creation, and engage in a cultural expurgation of its sins.

What changed? Leftist propaganda has had time to work its evil magic, rotting away our belief in ourselves.

The cultural corrosion has been evident for decades. Perhaps what we should have seen better were its consequences: Generations of students fed a steady diet of critical race theory and postcolonial gender studies—all delivered in safe spaces protected by an intolerance of dissent—poured out of college campuses into the world, waving their white-fragility texts like little red books.

These spoilt fools now comprise “a parasitic cultural elite that exploited American freedom to trash the country.” They have spread their empire of moonbattery from college campuses into newsrooms, corporate boardrooms, and every corner of Big Government.

The liberal elite openly hates America. That’s why they are destroying it with their insane cult of Cultural Marxism.

Pushback has to get serious now. Otherwise, it will not take them long to reduce the country to something we can no longer take pride in.

It won’t be enough to reassert America’s great historic virtues. It will require weakening the power of the totalitarians on campus, ensuring fair access for all voices on tech platforms, holding to account the lawless mobs defacing and defaming the nation’s legacy.

Most of all, we need to renounce the ideology of political correctness that they have been using as a wrecking ball — not haggle with it, but reject it root and branch in favor of the principals of individual liberty and responsibility that the country was based on.

Boston University Mascot Threatened With Cancelation

You have to give liberal totalitarians this much: they are thorough. Not only is Gone With the Wind on the way to the memory hole for offending their sensibilities, they want to cancel the Boston University mascot, not because terriers have joined the rapidly expanding list of things that are racist, but because Rhett is named after Rhett Butler.

As basic civil order breaks down and American civilization begins to circle the drain, this is what educrats regard as a crisis:

BU President Robert A. Brown wrote in a letter to students, faculty, staff, and alumni on Wednesday that he has formed a committee to consider changing the mascot’s name in response to concerns that it is a tribute to a character associated with the Confederacy, slavery, and sexual assault. …

“It is reasonable for people to question why, at a university founded by abolitionists, we have a mascot nicknamed for a character in a film whose racist depictions are completely at odds with our own tradition,” Brown wrote. “It is time to address this question.”

Here’s how the mascot came to be named after a fictional character we are now obligated to hate:

BU students seized on the movie’s romantic power, naming the mascot “Rhett” because “no one loves Scarlett”—a play on the school’s official color—“more than Rhett.”

There was once a time when not everything had to be viewed through the lens of militant Black Lives Matter ideology. But that time is over now.

Nina Silber, a College of Arts & Sciences professor and chair of history and the author of This War Ain’t Over: Fighting the Civil War in New Deal America (University of North Carolina Press, 2018) says she thinks many people make simple romanticized associations with the Rhett Butler name, viewing the character, played by Clark Gable, as dashing or brave. But, she says, people are generally unaware that he sought to save Scarlett from an attack by a Black man in a storyline that perpetuates deeply racist myths.

In real life, blacks never rape white women. Dispute this and you will be canceled as a racist.

Hard as it is to take this idiocy seriously, it is chilling to see how thoroughly liberals plan to erase anything that could conceivably be viewed as a challenge to their narrow ideology. American culture will be extirpated so that it can be replaced with shallow crap echoing their nauseating lies. Future generations will have no idea that we ever existed, other than a vague conviction that everything that came before them was bad.

Racist Oppression in Colonized Germany

What do you call police officers who confront Africans just because they had been sexually molesting a girl? That’s right, racist. From Presse Portal, translation compliments of Allah’s Willing Executioners:

In the late evening hours of July 4, an 18-year-old woman was allegedly first molested and then attacked by a group of five people on the platform at Radolfzell [Germany] station. Surrounded by this group, a 27-year-old Nigerian is said to have held the victim against her will and tried to kiss her.

She managed to free herself and call the police. Because this didn’t happen in the USA, where the police are currently sheltering from a blitzkrieg assault by the liberal establishment, officers were actually dispatched.

At first, the men refused to hand over their identity papers. In the further course of the inspection, they are said to have called the officers “racists” and “bastards”, among other things.

Africans learn fast regarding the totemic power of the word “racist.”

However, this time it didn’t work. So, an African bit an officer’s finger, leaving him “incapacitated.” Two Nigerians ended up facing charges, confirming that Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation continue to face racist oppression at the hands of the police, not only in America but in Europe as well.

Guardian Denounces Skyscrapers as Sexist

Even cities rotted through with moonbattery inspire awe and admiration from a distance due to their majestic skylines. Skyscrapers are a testament to the ingenuity and industriousness of mankind, and to the human race’s noble striving for the sky. Naturally, liberals disapprove. Tall buildings are sexist, according to the Guardian:

As far back as 1977, an American poet and professor of architecture named Dolores Hayden wrote an article with the explosive headline “Skyscraper seduction, skyscraper rape”. Hayden tore into the male power fantasies embodied in this celebrated urban form. The office tower, she wrote, is one more addition “to the procession of phallic monuments in history – including poles, obelisks, spires, columns and watchtowers”, where architects un-ironically use the language of “base, shaft and tip” while drawing upward-thrusting buildings ejaculating light into the night sky.

If it is worth taking pride in, moonbats will denounce it.

Antifa Freak on How to Extract Motorists From Cars

The Black Lives Matter/Antifa mob is fond of setting upon cars trying to make use of the roadways they have commandeered for their endless “protests.” Drivers and their passengers are terrorized and sometimes even shot. The hamstrung police can no longer be expected to come to your assistance, so calling 911 may be useless.

Sensibly, motorists have come to realize that it is better to drive through the mob than to place yourself at its mercy, even though afterward the media will go to absurd lengths to portray the besieged driver as the villain. Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Here an apparent Antifa freak confirms it by offering advice to her comrades on how to get through the windshield and cut the seatbelt so as to extract the driver for a beating that could prove lethal:

The Cold Civil War isn’t cold anymore. Vermin like this are the shock troops of the Democrat Party, which is at war with America.
