Hungary Ingeniously Strikes Back at EU on Population Displacement

Africa’s demographic explosion will conceivably snuff out European civilization. If Europe survives this generation of moonbats without being set on a course that will inevitably reduce it to an extension of Africa, it will owe a great debt to Hungary. Black Pigeon Speaks gives details:

Drug Fiends Smoke Crack Openly After Bill de Blasio Okays Smoking Pot in Public

Remember how effectively Rudy Giuliani cleaned up New York City with the broken windows policy? Now that policy is being run in reverse by the personification of the city’s decline, Bill de Blasio:

More than a dozen druggies openly smoked crack in Washington Square Park early Tuesday, just days after Mayor Bill de Blasio said he wanted the NYPD to stop locking up people for puffing pot in public.

The police ignored the crack smokers. However, be careful lighting up a cigarette in NYC; that could get you in trouble.

Bill Nye Wants Tax on Cow Farts

Odious Netflix moonbat Bill Nye has an ingenious plan for raising the price of food — tax cow flatulence:

“Well, this is what we can do and it’s a win-win: to have a fee on carbon. So if you are raising livestock and producing a lot of carbon dioxide with your farm equipment and the exhaust from the animals, then you would pay a fee on that and it would be reflected in the price of meat, reflected in the price of fish, reflected in the price of peanuts,” Bill Nye said in a recent interview with the Daily Beast.

The point is to improve the weather. Liberals literally believe that cow farts make it be too hot out. That’s what he means by “exhaust from the animals.”

Hilariously, Nye spins this latest example of his characteristic heavy-handed authoritarianism as “free-market”:

“This would be a free-market way to reckon the real cost of a meat diet to the world,” Nye continued.

Scratching meat off the menu is a progressive agenda item. Rabbits don’t eat meat, and the objective of social engineers is to reduce us to creatures that more resemble witless, defenseless, plant-munching, constantly fornicating rabbits than human beings. That could be why the United Nations has determined that we should all go vegan.

Just in case anyone needs to be told: no, cow farts do not affect the climate:

Methane is 0.00017% of all atmospheric gases and only 0.36% of the total greenhouse gases.

But since when did scientific reality have anything to do with exploiting the global warming hoax to impose the progressive agenda?

Catering to Leftist Radicals Puts Evergreen State College into Tailspin

Evergreen State College has become emblematic of academia’s decline as it succumbs to radical moonbattery:

Between 500 and 600 fewer students will attend Evergreen State College next fall than in 2017, according to internal estimates. That means projected full-time enrollment is down as much as 17% from 3,500 last fall.

The moonbattery started to spin out of control when biology prof Bret Weinstein objected to a “Day of Absence,” during which Caucasians were forbidden to come on campus. Educrats effectively sided with the cultural Marxist mob that came after him rather than let police restore order.

Evergreen is explicitly left-wing even by the standards of academia. But too much is too much, even for some moonbats.

Kirsten Shockey of Oregon … and her husband lean left. Their son Jakob attended Evergreen, and they assumed their daughter would, too. But they were alarmed by what she called the “witch hunt” atmosphere and “erosion of free speech” on campus. As decision time approached, Ms. Shockey told [Evergreen President George] Bridges in an email, “we are watching closely.”

They didn’t like what they saw. Ms. Shockey’s daughter crossed Evergreen off her list, following the advice of her brother. “The way identity politics played out looked to us like a university going from a place of learning to a new type of anti-intellectualism,” Ms. Shockey later told me. “Free speech and good discourse was lost—and then good teachers,” she added. “This is about where the alt-left seems to be taking us.”

Where the alt-left is taking Evergreen is straight down. Fall 2018 applications are down 20%. Undergraduate retention has cratered, with less than half of first-time, first-year students enrolled last fall staying through the school year. Evergreen is a state school, but half of its funding is obtained the old-fashioned way, through tuition — which is drying up. Consequently, a couple dozen full-time adjuncts are losing their jobs, and planned construction has been put on hold.

Have the radicals running Evergreen learned their lesson? They have not:

Administrators have since doubled down on identity politics. Evergreen advertises a “bias response team” to handle perceived slights. It has increased funding for new social-justice administrators and support staffers. Evergreen employees now go through “cultural competency, sensitivity and antibias training.” And in a May 14, 2018, email on “leaner leadership at Evergreen,” Mr. Bridges outlined an administrative reorganization plan heavy on “equity and inclusion.”

Expect collapse. The University of Missouri earned a similar fate by knuckling under to Black Lives Matter goons. Other schools will follow if educrats don’t turn back from the alt-left abyss.

Owners Propose Lame Solution to Kaepernick Syndrome

Kaepernick syndrome entails pampered Black Lives Matter types among NFL players refusing to stand for the national anthem because the criminally prone zillionaires think America oppresses them for being persons of politically preferred pigmentation. Despite the full-throated support of the moonbat propagandists at ESPN, this despicable behavior has driven away fans. No worries; the owners propose a solution:

It would be up to the home team on whether both teams come out of the locker room for the anthem, and, should teams come out, 15-yard penalties could be assessed for kneeling.

Players who drop their pants and moon Old Glory during the anthem might be in for a really serious punishment, like no seconds on dessert.

Such harsh measures are balanced by the NFL’s $89 million social justice partnership and a social justice bootcamp. If you so much as buy a Dallas Cowboys t-shirt, you are financing hardcore left-wing activism.

Reader KirklesWorth has a better suggestion regarding how to deal with Kaepernick syndrome:

I think they should hold up the game until they stand. If they kneel during the anthem, stop it and restart it when they stand. If they continue to refuse to stand, their team forfeits.

Or if the NFL really wants to prove itself worthy of its fans, it could banish the kneelers from the league. In the meantime, a continued boycott is well advised.

Moonbats: Defund the NRA and Give the Money to Teachers

As a reward for parroting the hard left line on gun control, Emma Gonzalez has been hyped by the media to the point of having over 1.6 million Twitter followers. She treats this massive following to gems like this demand that we defund the NRA, which she reportedly retweeted:

Whether public school teachers deserve still more money is another issue, although it seems obvious that spending on security should be a higher priority at the moment for those who are sincere about making schools safer. What is amazing is that these fools think the NRA is funded by the very government it protects us against by defending the Constitution. Maybe they are thinking of Planned Parenthood, which unlike the NRA really is funded by taxpayers and really does kill people.

Looks like public ridicule compelled the Tweet to be deleted. Maybe moonbats can be reached in their alternate reality after all.

Principal Grovelingly Apologizes for “Party Like It’s 1776” Appearing on Prom Tickets

The objective of cultural Marxism — a.k.a. political correctness — is to destroy our culture. This cannot be done without unmooring us from our heritage and then turning us against it. The pride our history would inspire in any healthy person must be corroded into shame before progressive objectives can be achieved. That’s why the principal of Cherry Hill High School East in New Jersey has grovelingly apologized for the phrase “party like it’s 1776” appearing on tickets for the senior prom, to be held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia:

“[N]ot all communities can celebrate what life was like in 1776,” Principal Dennis Perry said in a letter to the community Friday.

“I am writing to apologize for the hurt feelings this reference caused for members of our school family,” wrote Perry.

“I especially apologize to our African American students, who I have let down by not initially recognizing the inappropriateness of this wording,” he added.

Crawl, Principal Perry. Crawl on your knees and beg forgiveness for not being sufficiently ashamed of the year that gave birth to America.

Perry said all prom-goers will receive commemorative tickets without the offensive language and vowed the school will make changes “to produce well thought out, appropriate communications.”

Offensive language. “Party like it’s 1776” is offensive language now, because persons of politically preferred pigmentation have discovered they can bully everyone else by choosing to be offended by it.

Inclusion is not about inclusion. It is about brainwashing and browbeating until we see our own nation as an obscenity best flushed away and forgotten.

Danny Elmore of the Cherry Hill African American Civic Association treated Perry to a pat on the head as a reward for his obsequiousness.

However, he said the offensive wording occurred because minorities were not part of the decision-making process.

No doubt they will convene a conference of Al Sharpton types to get permission before printing next year’s prom tickets.

Black youths represented 6.2 percent of East’s student body…

Lest that 6.2% choose to be offended, the time of America’s birth must be reviled. Political correctness entails offending the majority at every opportunity in the name of perpetually disgruntled outliers.

An online search found “party like it’s 1776” has been used to promote multiple events in Philadelphia.

Never again though, now that we know 1776 was a racist year. The Philadelphia 76ers had better change their name promptly, or they will get bullied like the Cleveland Indians did before deep-sixing Chief Wahoo.

Read Principal Perry’s letter, and weep for what political correctness has done to us:

While this mentality prevails, I shudder to think what students are taught in their history classes.

Inclusive Exclusion at the Good Life Community Bicycle Shop

All-encompassing totalitarian ideologies like moonbattery can be applied to anything — even bicycles. A sexually perplexed woman calling herself Mike Hooves “who identifies as a non-binary femme” was delighted to discover the Good Life Community Bicycle Shop in Calgary:

Every Wednesday, the shop is reserved for women, transgender people or those who identify as neither male nor female to work on or learn about bikes.

Good Life is not a traditional retailer, but rather a not-for-profit education and resource centre.

Presumably that means they don’t have to pay taxes. But they do sell bicycles.

It seems we have too many normal people riding bikes. The purpose of Good Life is “to make cycling more inclusive.” As we have come to expect, this is accomplished through exclusion. On Wednesdays, guys who understand that they are guys are not allowed in the shop.

A Reddit user going as JarritosFritos reports that he wanted to buy a cheap bike but was interrogated regarding his gender entity. He must identify as a regular person whose self-conception is not based upon psychiatry morbidity, because they wouldn’t let him in the store. That’s inclusion.

Obama Netflix Deal Likely to Be Fantastically Lucrative

To quote progressive icon Barack Obama,

“I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.”

But our former Wealth Redistributor in Chief could never make enough, if the Obama Netflix deal is as lucrative as believed:

Netflix has secured a deal with former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama to produce series and movies for the streaming service. The former first couple will, according to an announcement Monday from the company, potentially work on scripted and unscripted series as well as docu-series, documentary films, and features under the multi-year deal. …

It is unknown how much the Obamas’ Netflix agreement — which will see them produce through their newly formed company Higher Ground Productions — is worth. In March, Penguin Random House signed the couple to a joint book deal that pays them a reported $65 million for their respective memoirs.

That $65 million is likely to be chump change compared to the Netflix deal. Netflix has been shoveling money right and left lately:

Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes jumped from ABC to Netflix in August 2017 in a deal that is estimated to be worth $100 million spanning four years.

Ryan Murphy, the uber-producer behind Glee, American Horror Story, American Crime Story and Feud, joined Rhimes at Netflix in February. He is reported to have signed a $300 million, five-year pact.

As for the Obamas,

Mark Borkowski, a media analyst and PR strategist, tells Newsweek that the Obamas’ deal could eclipse both of those. He says Netflix may offer the former first couple $500 million.

No wonder the actual amount is being kept under wraps. Not even the Moonbat Messiah could square that with the eat-the-rich quasi-Marxist rhetoric that put him in a position to rake in so much cash.

Netflix subscribers, be forewarned that this could indicate a shift further Left. Netflix had already added to its board of directors Obama’s tasteless joke of a National Security Advisor, Susan Rice.

Shaun King Jumps the Shark with Outrageous Allegations Against Texas State Trooper

When it comes to fraud, no one tops social justice warrior, former New York Daily Snooze propagandist, hate hoaxer, dubious black person, swindler, plagiarist, America-basher, and all around moonbat extraordinaire Shaun King.

Earlier, he helped foment a farcical social justice crusade in Fort Worth. His latest foray into phoniness has him stirring up trouble in Texas once again. He has taken to Fakebook to claim that Sherita Dixon Cole, a person of politically preferred pigmentation and close personal friend to civil rights attorney Lee Merritt (familiar from the earlier Fort Worth shenanigans), had fallen into the hands of villains — i.e., the police:

This woman was kidnapped and raped by a Texas State Trooper— OFFICER HUBBARD, she is now being held hostage in Ellis County Jail!

King also accused the officer of threatening to murder her boyfriend and plant a gun on him. The details are salacious in the extreme:

Fortunately for Officer Hubbard, there is dashcam video:

“Upon learning of the allegations today, the department immediately took action to review the dash cam video,” stated Lonny Haschel, Texas DPS staff lieutenant, to the Daily Light via email. “The video shows absolutely no evidence to support the serious accusations against the trooper during the DWI arrest of the suspect.”

No worries; Shaun King has been revealed as a fraud many times before. This will have no effect on his credibility or his career as a social justice warrior.

The Truth About Incels

Not all people who indulge in self-loathing express it through moonbattery. Those who express it as resentment toward the opposite sex sometimes become incels (involuntary celibates). Incels are not to be confused with MGTOWs (men groping their own wieners a.k.a. men going their own way), who want you to think their celibacy is a choice.

Unlike the demonized NRA, the sad incel phenomenon is dangerous, as Santa Fe, Texas maniac Dimitrios Pagourtzis demonstrated. Paul Joseph Watson offers insight into how feminism helped create incels and advice on how they can become chads:

Politically Correct Discrimination: Students Told Girls Would Get Higher Grades

Politically correct discrimination in favor of preferred identity groups can be pushed so far over the top that appearance-minded educrats will grudgingly rein it in:

University of Akron officials this week blocked a professor from carrying out his plan to raise female students’ grades as part of what he called a “national movement to encourage female students to go to information sciences.”

Liping Liu, who teaches information systems analysis and design, announced in an email that students “may see their grades raised one level or two” for being female.

Whether you would have to really be female to get your grade inflated or could just identify as female is unclear.

This sort of blatant unfairness it is not unprecedented:

Prestigious Oxford University in Britain extended exam times in a bid to improve women’s scores, reports in January said.

We haven’t seen the last Title IX complaint regarding discrimination against men. Guys are starting to push back, or no one would have made enough of an issue of Liu’s grading scheme to get educrats to put the kibosh on it.

New Star Wars Movie Inflicts Pansexual Lando Calrissian

Back in the golden age of Hollywood, the path to success was to start with a strong script and apply talented acting and directing. But now there is an easier formula. You start with a tired but familiar franchise, and make the characters fit into politically correct identity groups to assure positive coverage from the media drovers who tell the herd what to like. An example is the new and improved pansexual Lando Calrissian, who has been upgraded from a garden variety person of politically preferred pigmentation to a PPPPP:

When word came Thursday that suave Star Wars character Lando Calrissian is pansexual, I couldn’t help but feel a bit giddy. I finally found a Star Wars character who falls in love the way I do.

While Lando seems like a flirtatious ladies’ man in the original trilogy, Solo co-screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan confirmed during Solo: A Star Wars Story promotions that he isn’t exactly straight. Asked in an interview with Huffington Post if the character played by Donald Glover is pansexual, Kasdan replied, “I would say yes.”

If you haven’t thrown up yet, you must not have seen Donald Glover in his viral video “This Is America.”

Being pansexual is even more P.C. than being bisexual, because whereas bisexuals are only attracted to males and females,

pansexuality is described by GLAAD as having an attraction to all gender identities, or an attraction to people regardless of their gender or gender identity.

GLAAD is a cell of militant perverts dedicated to mainstreaming depravity through incessant bullying.

Some critics have hinted in their Solo reviews that Lando flirts with Han Solo

But others in the press consider even pansexual Lando to be insufficiently P.C., accusing him of flirting with a female robot:

“The assertion that Lando is pansexual — because he seems to be interested in a female droid — is a piss-poor shot at representation that still manages to reinforce hetero relationships as default,” Megan Farokhmanesh from the Verge wrote on Thursday.

Ms. Farokhmanesh considers it a thought crime to perpetuate the “damaging tradition of conflating pansexuality with promiscuity.”

Looks like we still have to make some more “progress” before we achieve maximum moonbattery.

Hate Crime Crisis Solved at Westfield State University

The hate crime crisis was raging out of control at Westfield State University. Then they solved the problem:

After the Massachusetts school installed 400 security cameras, the weekly rate of people reporting bias and hate crimes there dropped by a whopping 93 percent.

For insight into why the cameras have been so effective, consider the two most recent entries on the Hate Hoax List, Jerrod Moultrie and Dawn Hilton-Williams. Both were allegedly menaced by racist cops who turned out to be nothing but professional when bodycam video was reviewed.

The vast majority of the incidents last fall were racists notes slipped under students’ doors or left in mailboxes, as well as racist vandalism and racial slurs “overheard” by others.

Maybe the multitudinous racists are too cowed by the cameras to indulge in notes and slurs. More likely, video would reveal this phantom army of racists not to exist.

It’s unknown whether all of the allegations were legitimate bias incidents or hate crimes — or if some were hoaxes perpetrated to advance a narrative.

To put it more accurately, it is unknown how many were hoaxes. A good guess would be all of them.

Al Gore Delivers the Laughs at Commencement Address

Bwahaha! During a commencement address at the University of Maryland, funny man Al Gore demonstrated that his sense of humor is still in top form:

He said he hoped to see “an American youth movement” that will vote in “unprecedented numbers and reclaim the integrity of American democracy.”

The guy who undermined our system of democratic republicanism by refusing to concede the 2000 election, throwing it into the courts so that to this day some moonbats dispute the validity of the election, wants more people who haven’t outgrown liberal politics yet to vote for his party so as to “reclaim the integrity of American democracy”!

He keeps the laughs coming:

[Gore barked] that America’s “experiment” with the Trump administration should, like some scientific ventures, “be terminated early for ethical reasons.”

Al “No Controlling Legal Authority” Gore presumably wants to use impeachment to overturn the results of another election that didn’t go his way — and he wants to do it for “ethical reasons”!

Gore is a laugh a minute. You can see why the guy whose masseuse calls him a giggling crazed sex poodle would be in high demand for commencement addresses.
