In Attempt to Get George Zimmerman Killed, Spike Lee Retweets the Wrong Address

Left-wing director Spike Lee, a favorite of particularly phony liberal trendoids, retweeted George Zimmerman’s address to his moonbat followers, in hopes of getting him killed or at the very least getting his house burned down as punishment for the neighborhood watch captain defending himself from the vicious punk who was bashing his head against the sidewalk. Spike not being very bright, he sent out the wrong address:

An elderly Florida couple have been forced to move into a hotel after their home address was wrongly tweeted as belonging to the man who shot teen Trayvon Martin.

The tweets were traced back to a man in California and the address was also reportedly retweeted by director Spike Lee to his almost 250,000 followers.

The couple, aged 70 and 72, have been harassed with hate mail, been hassled by media and had scared neighbors questioning them since the tweet, their son Chip Humble told the Orlando Sentinel.

Fearful for their safety, and hoping to escape the spotlight, the couple have temporarily moved to a hotel.

The confusion seems to stem from the fact the woman’s son is named William George Zimmerman and he lived briefly at the address in 1995.

When William Zimmerman pleaded with the man who tweeted the address, the man responded, “Black power all day. No justice, no peace” along with an obscenity.

That is the closest thing to a reasonable conversation you can have with the sort who would glorify Trayvon Martin.

Occupy Melbourne Moonbat Fleeces Taxpayers for Absurd Art Projects

Where do the useless layabouts comprising the Occupy Wall Street infestations get the money for their iPods? From capitalist exploiters, of course. Sometimes it is received voluntarily, as gifts from their parents. Other times, government coercion is required to spread wealth around from those who create it to those who piously denounce it, as in the case of Carl Scrase:

An Occupy Melbourne protester who claims to be against capitalist greed has taken $17,000 in grants and awards.

In return for generous patronage, Melbourne artist Carl Scrase has delivered a postcard of his hand, a bull-nose paper clip sculpture and a collage of cut up photographs of his face on a wooden board.

Scrase, 28, who is a key player in the Occupy Melbourne movement, said his artwork was about “creating conversations”.

A participant in these conversions is Melbourne Mayor Robert Doyle, who wonders,

“If we are so terrible and they have to occupy us indefinitely until capitalism falls, well then where are they going to get their grants from?”

(di)Scrase declares that he is anti-greed. According to moonbats, it’s not greedy to acquire money, so long as you do it through government coercion and not voluntary exchange.

Kathleen Sebelius Proclaims That Government Meddling in Healthcare Is a Matter of National Security

Kathleen Sebelius, whom ObamaCare makes one of the most powerful people in the world, unsurprisingly wants this hated attempt to nationalize the healthcare industry to survive challenges on the grounds of its blatant unconstitutionality. The rhetoric she’s resorting to is enough to cause high blood pressure:

During a visit to the South Carolina coast, Sebelius spoke with a black nurses group and then was to attend a conference on improving access to health care.

The nation’s health “really is an issue of national security,” she told the nurses group…

Once again we see that the Obama Regime is incapable of grasping the meaning of the term national security. But then, maybe Ms. Supercilious (aka the Abortion Queen) has a point. If Obama’s power grabs aren’t a matter of national security, what could be?

Try to imagine the Abortion Queen next meeting with a white nurses group, just to be fair — if there were such a thing. This offers a clue as to why public policy benefits strident minorities at the expense of everyone else.

When this is applied to federal control of healthcare, which will mean rationing here just as it has everywhere else that has succumbed to socialized medicine, your skin color could cost you your life — unless you’re lucky enough to have oppressed skin color. Already the funding of studies by the moonbats running the National Institutes of Health has resulted in an unproductive obsession with mostly nonexistent “healthcare disparities” at the expense of meaningful scientific research. Curing cancer would be nice, but the real money goes to researching the possibility that tumors hurt worse for polysexual African American dwarves due to historic insensitivities.

Will determine who gets the healthcare.

War on History Degenerates Into Digging Up Graves

Liberals are lousy losers, as ObamaGate confirms. They are even lousier winners.

One of their biggest victories has been claimed retroactively. The South lost the Civil War before the Cultural Marxist ideology that defines today’s Left even existed. Yet modern liberals revel in the defeat of the CSA as if they had fought in the bloody war themselves.

When America was dominated by great men like Abraham Lincoln and Robert E. Lee, defeat with honor was possible. That’s why the war ended, instead of grinding on indefinitely as a guerilla campaign. Given their devotion to honor, Southern soldiers may have fought to the last man before surrendering if they had known what the future would hold. In contrast, progressives have no concept of honor.

That’s why leftists attack an enemy that ceased to exist in 1865. A prime objective of the War on History is to eradicate all traces of the heroes of the South. This totalitarian campaign has escalated to the point where liberal ghouls are actually defiling graves by digging up bodies:

The bodies of a famous Civil War general and his wife are set to be exhumed from a Tennessee park less than three years after a statue memorializing the officer was torn down.

General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife are slated to be ejected from their not-so-eternal resting place in Health Sciences Park in Memphis.

Some find value in remembering American history:

The city of Memphis was unable to remove the statues originally thanks to Tennessee’s Heritage Protection Act.

However, the moonbats running Memphrica found a workaround:

In an effort to get rid of the statues for good, the city sold two parks in late 2017 to Memphis Greenspace for $1,000 each, according to the Commercial Appeal.

Apparently, agreeing to erase remnants of heritage was part of the deal.

It has yet to be decided what will be done with Nathan Bedford Forrest’s defenseless remains. If it is up to woke liberals, his bones are likely to be discarded in a landfill. Robert E. Lee will soon follow, and then the slave-owning white male Southern Founding Fathers, starting with George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

Learning About World War II Deemed to Be Too Stressful

Every minute of our history will go down the memory hole, even World War II. You might think it would be spared, since the conflict is remembered as pure good triumphing over pure evil, and allows partisans of the left and right alike to identify with the winning side. But it still has to be erased, as surely as Robert E. Lee, Christopher Columbus, and the slave-owning Founding Fathers. You see, learning about WWII might be stressful:

Reality TV star Freddie Bentley, 22, told Good Morning Britain [Friday] that he thinks schools should trim back what they teach on the conflict.

Whimpers Freddie,

“I remember learning it as a child thinking ‘Oh my God it’s so intense.’”

Possibly intense enough to melt a snowflake. No one should have to suffer discomfort; that would be oppression.

He is fearful that the bloody subject may worsen any mental health issues that children already have.

True enough, mental health issues are probably the most immediate threat to today’s youth. Nazis and their allies don’t attack from overseas these days; the enemy comes from within our own heads.

Bon Air Fire Company Caves to Thought Police

Brace yourself for an appalling update on the story of the fire company that was shut down because it refused to accept the forced resignation of Bruce McClay, Jr, a firefighter who had socialized with the Proud Boys. The Bon Air Fire Company in Haverford Township, Pennsylvania has abandoned its principled stand; it has caved in to the thought police in the most shameful manner conceivable.

The company has been reinstated, but the price was way too high. In addition to throwing McClay to the sharks,

The fire company will reshape its leadership board — which had defended volunteer Bruce McClay Jr. for weeks — institute sensitivity training, and revise its bylaws, Haverford Board of Commissioners President Andy Lewis said Monday evening.

Sensitivity training is a degrading form of brainwashing by which victims are indoctrinated to hate themselves for their alleged white straight male privilege in the name of Cultural Marxism.

The statement further noted Bon Air would revise its current antidiscrimination policies so “that volunteers who engage in hate speech or join hate groups are not welcome in the Bon Air Fire Company.”

What exactly have the Proud Boys done to make them so horrible that even to have socialized with these people makes you unfit to put out fires? Nothing much. Their worst sin, other than a few scuffles with Antifa thugs, is that they have been denounced by the ultraleft ADL for the usual laundry list of vague -isms and -phobias. This apparently constitutes their only specific crime:

Members were present at the “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., in 2017.

This so-called “white supremacist” rally drew some unsavory people from both sides of the divide, but it was primarily a protest against the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee. It is now considered beyond the pale to push back against the radical left’s War on History.

If they can demonize the Proud Boys to this outlandish extent, they can and will do the same to the NRA. Note that McClay never even joined the Proud Boys. With a few years, just having a beer with NRA members may cost you your job. Then they will go after registered Republicans and those suspected of being on friendly terms with them.

Renoir Denounced as Problematic

The progressive bulldozer won’t spare even great painters like Renoir. The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts is featuring his nudes, placing the famous impressionist in the crosshairs of the thought police. Sniffs the insufferable New Yorker:

Who doesn’t have a problem with Pierre-Auguste Renoir?

Until recently, most everyone. But now only the unwoke don’t have a problem with Renoir.

The art historian Martha Lucy, writing in the show’s gorgeous catalogue, notes that, “in contemporary discourse,” the name Renoir has “come to stand for ‘sexist male artist.’ ” Renoir took such presumptuous, slavering joy in looking at naked women—who in his paintings were always creamy or biscuit white, often with strawberry accents, and ideally blond—that, Lucy goes on to argue, the tactility of the later nudes, with brushstrokes like roving fingers, unsettles any kind of gaze, including the male.

The “male gaze” is a topic that causes feminists and their fellow travelers to gnash their teeth angrily.

The New Yorker critic doesn’t like the girls in Renoir paintings, and not only because it is racist of them to be Caucasian.

Their faces nearly always look, not to put too fine a point on it, dumb—bearing out Renoir’s indifference to the women as individuals with inner lives. … Peculiarly, Renoir did grant the women wonderfully articulated hands, the body part hardest to render convincingly—good for doing things, perhaps around the house.

That’s because Renoir was a sexist. He was in league with the patriarchy that must be smashed.

It feels wrong to term Renoir a misogynist, though he was certainly patriarchal.

Renoir may have been even worse than a misogynist, hard as that may be to imagine:

He deemed women who performed professionally “completely ridiculous”; in a letter to a critic, he explained, “In ancient times, women sang and danced for free for the pleasures of being charming and gracious. Today, it’s all for money which takes away the charm.” The airy assumption in that may be worse than misogyny, which at least credits women with power as antagonists. It marks no mere flaw in Renoir’s personality but an essence of it that dovetails with his attitude toward painting. … An argument is often made that we shouldn’t judge the past by the values of the present, but that’s a hard sell in a case as primordial as Renoir’s.

Not just a thought criminal, but a primordial thought criminal!

Before long, Renoir will join Robert E. Lee at the bottom of the memory hole. His sexist paintings will meet the fate of those Buddhist statues blown up by the Taliban. By then, the New Yorker will have moved on to new targets to denounce for being problematic. As mentioned yesterday,

Culturally speaking, there is nothing of value that leftists will not destroy. They want to clear the ground to make room for utopia.

The intelligentsia’s job will not be finished until Western Civilization has been completely obliterated.

War on Statues Hits Reformation Wall

They started by demanding tolerance. It didn’t take them long to progress to last month’s vandalism of the Reformation Wall in Geneva, Switzerland.

The monument consists of statues of John Calvin, Guillaume Farel, Théodore de Bèze, and John Knox. The figures were defaced with paint in rainbow colors.

Via Creation.com:

Most likely, an LGBT group had vandalized the statues because of the rainbow coloring of the paint, but no-one yet has come forth to claim responsibility for the act. This is not the first time that the monument has been defaced. For example, in March 2019, a feminist group sprayed graffiti across the monument, saying “Where are the women?”

The ferocious hostility of leftist militants is directed not only a Christianity, but at Western heritage in general. The War on Statues was hardly likely to stop at Robert E. Lee.

War on History Goes After Ronald Reagan

Any historical figure who could serve as a rallying point for resistance to the Far Left must be demonized, marginalized, and then erased. Robert E. Lee was only the beginning. In no time at all, they moved on to heroes as disparate as Christopher Columbus and Thomas Jefferson. Already they are purging the recent past. John Wayne was targeted. Now we learn that Ronald Reagan was racist and therefore bad:

On Wednesday afternoon, CNN became the first cable news network to air former President Ronald Reagan making racist remarks — in which he called African diplomats “monkeys” — since the tape was released on Tuesday.

CNN propagandist Brooke Baldwin explicitly equated Reagan with Trump, whom the liberal media has portrayed as a racist on a daily basis since he was elected.

“On the heels of President Trump using disparaging imagery to describe African nations, new tapes have just been released by the National Archives that reveal similar language used by the late President Ronald Reagan,” Baldwin said.

Actually, Trump has not used similar language, or we would know about it. CNN would probably set up a permanent chyron.

The remark in question was from a private 1971 telephone conversation with Richard Nixon. Any number of people may have said something similar at the time. However, to say it these days would be extreme blasphemy against political correctness, since Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation are now regarded as sacred beings around whose holy oppression all reality revolves like planets around the sun. The War on History works by incongruously holding historical figures to current liberal political standards on a retroactive basis.

“To see those, those monkeys from those African countries — damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!” Reagan said.

That may be all it takes to destroy the greatest president to serve in our lifetimes. Instead of inspiring future generations of conservatives and patriots, Reagan will be dismissed as a racist. By now we all know that if someone says anything racist, their entire existence is totally discredited. Everything else they say or do must be wrong. To dispute this would be to risk being denounced as a racist yourself.

Either we stand up to the word “racist” or we lose Ronald Reagan.

Algerian Colonists Wreck Statue of Charles de Gaulle

To get an idea of how much the Islamic colonists swamping France revere French heritage, consider what they did to a statue of the iconic Charles de Gaulle to celebrate Algeria’s win in a soccer game:

Football fans in French city of Évreux expressed their joy following the victory of Algeria’s team over Senegal in the final of the African Cup of Nations entirely too passionately, as they tore a new statue of General Charles de Gaulle from its base when they flooded the city centre to celebrate the team’s win, according to La Dépêche d’Évreux. The following day, the statue was still lying on the ground, not yet reinstalled.

Robert E. Lee, Christopher Columbus, and George Washington are not the only great historical figures whose statues are at risk.

The leader of the French Resistance and Founder of France’s Fifth Republic knew better times than these:

The middle part of the tweet above reads,

Through this heinous act, it is the very symbol of our free nation that is being targeted.

It would have been more accurate to say,

Through this heinous act, it is the very symbol of our French nation that is being targeted.

But then, when France is no longer French, it will no longer be even remotely free.

Algeria’s big win also filled the streets with celebrants in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Strasbourg, and Toulouse. Once Algeria was a French colony; now it’s the other way around. Since the French didn’t displace the native population, their colonization of Algeria was temporary. The Muslim colonization of France will be permanent, barring some radical reversal.

Confederate Railroad Unpersoned

The Southern rock band Confederate Railroad has been unpersoned. It has been around since the 1980s, but those who conform to goodthink will henceforth refuse to acknowledge its existence.

WSIL reports from rural southern Illinois on the first step in Southern Railroad’s eradication:

A band has been removed from the Du Quoin State Fair lineup.

Confederate Railroad will no longer perform on August 27.

The Du Quoin Weekly reports the band was removed because of their name.

The bureauweenies at the Illinois Department of Agriculture made the decision.

As everyone knew at the time, tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee was only the beginning. Anything explicitly referencing the South as a sociohistorical entity will be erased. Leftists are afraid that opposition will rally around the concept of the South. After all, the Confederate flag is a symbol of rebellion.

Regarding Confederate Railroad, Conservative Tribune notes that “there’s no indication that their name has any political undertones besides as tip of the hat to the southern roots of their music genre.”

The Dukes of Hazard did not have political undertones either. That did not stop it from going down the memory hole because liberals did not approve of the flag atop their car.

Band member Danny Shirley confirms that the point of the name is to indicate that they are “proud to be from the South.” That’s why his band is “problematic,” to use a favorite term of the Thought Police. You are not allowed to be proud to be from the South. You can be proud to engage in perverted sex acts though.

Between the relentless bullying of liberals and the submissive cowardice of everyone else, before long we will have no culture but liberal culture. In the midst of this cultural genocide, we have to listen to them preach at us about diversity.

If you like Lynyrd Skynyrd, be advised that the band is living on borrowed time. Don’t stream it; get it onto your hard drive where they can’t make it disappear.

NYC to Raise Monuments to Rioting Drag Queens

Monuments reflect a society’s values. A healthy society reveres heroes of the past who serve to inspire the current generation to live admirably. New York City under moonbat rule has a different orientation:

Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson … will be honored with a public monument in New York City, officials announced Thursday.

Rivera and Johnson were drag queens. In addition to their psychosexual disorders, Johnson was a violent schizophrenic who required antipsychotic medication.

Their claim to fame is their leadership role in antipolice riots that took place in 1969. The Stonewall Riots “helped usher in a new, militant phase of the movement for gay rights.” That phase continues to this day. The effect on American culture has been catastrophic.

The Stonewall Inn where the riots began is a Greenwich Village bar that was owned by the Mafia. It is now regarded as sacred ground by moonbats:

In 2016, President Barack Obama designated the site of the riots—Stonewall Inn, Christopher Park, and the surrounding streets and sidewalks—a national monument in recognition of the area’s contribution to gay and human rights.

Johnson and Rivera founded the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries. Like many who make a lifestyle out of sin, they died relatively young, at ages 46 and 50, respectively. Johnson’s death may have been suicide.

To put up public monuments to perverts because they took part in riots is so grotesque as to be surreal. It takes place as monuments to truly great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Christopher Columbus, and of course Robert E. Lee are under attack.

This story is appalling but no longer surprising, considering that Harvey Milk, who is revered for having been a sexual deviant and who preyed on troubled teenage boys, has a street, a ship, a stamp, a movie, a holiday, and a Medal of Freedom in his honor.

Moonbats Start Purging Classic Movies

Given that there is no sector of society more rigidly controlled by leftist Jacobins than entertainment, it is only a matter of time until the War on History turns its attention from tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee and Christopher Columbus to purge our cultural history of classic movies.

Anything filmed earlier than last week probably violates some aspect of ever-evolving political correctness. Christian Toto notes that the movie purge is already getting started:

Two years ago, a Memphis theater nixed a screening of the 1939 classic “Gone with the Wind” because of its “insensitive” content.

Disney’s Oscar-winning “Song of the South” won’t be seen on the company’s forthcoming streaming platform. The 1946 film’s antiquated, and some say racist, portrayal of black life turned the movie into cultural poison. It’s never made it to home video, and that’s unlikely to change in the near future.

Once an actor has been unpersoned, anything he appeared in may be subject to erasure. For example, Bounce TV has pulled reruns of The Cosby Show, HBO disappeared all programming including Louis C.K., and Amazon declined to release Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York due to sexual shenanigans, which constitute political crimes in the #MeToo era.

A purge would be bad news for fans of classic westerns, considering that moonbats have already demanded that John Wayne Airport be renamed because the Duke was supposedly racist.

If you want to watch classic movies on cable, you will probably end up at Turner Classic Movies. Consider the rabidly left-wing politics of hosts like Ben Mankiewicz, Eddie Muller, and Alec Baldwin, and that TCM was founded by demented leftist Ted Turner. Not exactly a trustworthy guardian of our cultural heritage.

People used to collect DVDs. Increasingly, movies we buy live somewhere off in the cloud. It isn’t hard to imagine John Wayne movies simply vanishing overnight. Then they would erase the next retroactive thought criminal, then the next and the next.

Antifa Vandalizes, Conspires With Cartel, Earns Liberal Praise

It looks like we will never agree on anything, if we can’t even agree that Antifa are the bad guys. Recent Antifa news includes vandalism in an attempt to undermine US border defense with soft terrorism and an alleged plot to work with a foreign cartel to attack Border Patrol agents.

From Portland, where Antifa has waged war against ICE with the backing of local government (see here and here):

Sometime over the weekend, anonymous vandals stuck a garden hose through the front-door mail slot of lawyer Sean Riddell’s Northeast Portland office and left the water running.

Who would do such a thing and why? A Willamette Week reporter learned the answer by email.

The email, signed “some anarchists,” claims responsibility and says the authors hoped to “cause maximum economic damage” to Riddell because he provides legal representation to the National ICE Council, the union for local employees of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Damage was extensive. Apparently, insurance will cover it. That means everyone who buys insurance gets to pay. Thanks Antifa!

Antifa appears to be escalating from juvenile pranks, Occupy antics, and street brawl violence in the direction of genuine terrorism. This story could be a milestone:

The FBI is unraveling an alleged plot, where Antifa members planned to provoke an armed rebellion at the U.S. border. …

The scheme involves left-wing activists buying guns and receiving militia training from cartel members in order to attack U.S. Border Patrol agents, and to disrupt their operations.

If that doesn’t qualify as treason, we may as well throw the word out of the legal code.

The paper trail appears to point to a plot hatched between Antifa activist Evan Duke III and a Mexican-based cartel associate known as “Cobra Commander.” …

While the men say they have never met, both were flagged by U.S. Customs and Border Protection for their involvement at the Tijuana border when violence broke out between November of 2018 and January of this year. Hundreds of migrants rushed the border, some throwing rocks, forcing Border Patrol agents to respond with tear gas.

That was a big opportunity for the media, which struck this mighty blow against the USA’s territorial sovereignty:

Speaking of the media,

By “neo-Nazis,” Cuomo is referring to anyone who does not want Robert E. Lee perp-walked to the Memory Hole.

It isn’t just the media wing; the political wing of Leftism Inc likes Antifa too:

Biden launched his campaign for president by praising the group. He referred to a group of protesters who gathered in Charlottesville, VA, and violently confronted white nationalists “a courageous group of Americans.”

The “white nationalists” include everyone there who was lawfully protesting the tearing down of a Robert E. Lee statue. The other people there had come explicitly to pick a fight. Authorities stood by and let it happen.

If America succumbs to moonbattery, Antifa will be our answer to the Brownshirts — hard as it has been to take these clowns seriously.
