Houston Public Library Has Sex Offender Read to Kids

The corruption of children on behalf of the progressive agenda can’t go much further over the top without repealing laws against sexual abuse. The Houston Public Library, participating in the nationwide (e.g., here, here, and here) drag queen story hour fad, had a registered sex offender reading to children:

Albert Garza, a 32-year-old registered sex offender, participated in the program under the name Tatiana Mala-Niña, according to the conservative anti-LGBTQ group, MassResistance.

Library officials acknowledged in a statement Friday that Garza has “a criminal background that should have prevented him from participating” in the Drag Queen Storytime program, in which drag queens read books at the Freed-Montrose library.

Department of Public Safety records show Garza was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of an 8-year-old child in 2009, for which he received five years of probation and community supervision.

Was anyone expecting healthy, normal men to want to read books to children while dressed in women’s clothes? Like everything else, the safety and well-being of kids take a backseat to grotesque social engineering.

These self-anointed intellectuals are people who think that those who believe in God and Jesus Christ, those who 'cling to their guns and their religion,' are a lower form of animal life, while they, themselves, have no problem whatever accepting Obama as a messiah and, in the past, deifying the likes of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

Moonbats Prefer Maduro to Trump

At least even moonbats would have to agree that we are better off with Trump than with a socialist tyrant, in light of what has been going on under Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela. People have been reduced to eating pets and zoo animals, while Maduro refuses to let aid into the country. They are so desperate, they are resorting to sewers in search of water. A booming economy under Trump is better than that, right?

Wrong, according to “Hands Off Venezuela” protesters who rallied at Lafayette Square near the White House yesterday:

Chelsea Clinton Blamed for Christchurch

To no one’s surprise, the Muslim–moonbat alliance has been exploiting the Christchurch shootings to the hilt, attacking the right of self-defense and demonizing all opposition to Islamization. Even Chelsea Clinton has been blamed for the violence:

A student cornered Chelsea Clinton at an NYU vigil for the New Zealand massacre victims and blamed her for inciting murderous anti-Muslim hatred — prompting fellow first-family member Donald Trump Jr. to jump to her defense.

“After all that you have done, all the Islamophobia that you have stoked,” senior Leen Dweik angrily tells Clinton in a since-deleted viral video posted Friday night by student activist Rose Asaf. “This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words you have put out in the world.

“The 49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there,” seethed Dweik, wearing a Bernie Sanders 2020 T-shirt — and referring to Clinton’s criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments about Israel last month.

Don’t agree with Ilhan Omar that Jews suck? Then you are an Islamophobe with blood on your hands. The same goes for anyone not completely in tune with expansionist Islam.

Get used to it. Muslims and their allies will use Christchurch to club everyone is sight for the foreseeable future.

Watch Chelsea get chewed out for not keeping up with the Islamophilic radicalization of her party by a Bernie Sanders supporter:

Hidden Camera Reveals Vigilante Censorship

What do you get when you pin up fliers with right-of-center messages in a campus free speech zone? You can probably guess the answer: vigilante censorship by militant moonbats who cannot stand for any point of view to be expressed except the one they are fed by their professors and mindlessly conform to. The UMM College Republicans confirmed it at the University of Minnesota Morris with a hidden camera:

Several student passersby took the fliers down, according to the video, obtained exclusively by The College Fix. Others drew big Xs through them. One student used other posters to cover the College Republican ones up. And in one video, a woman wearing a UMM shirt, possibly an employee, is also seen taking down the fliers.

The fliers were not exactly provocative.

The fliers advertised the College Republicans’ meeting time and location. One quoted Brett Kavanaugh’s infamous line about liking and drinking beer. Another pro-life themed one calls Republicans “the party that has a future” because it doesn’t kill babies. A third declares there’s only two genders. And of course there’s one featuring President Donald Trump.

Contrasted with the fliers seen around campus for a club called Queer Devil Worshippers for a Better Future, that all sounds pretty mild.

Over 50 conservative fliers were destroyed, forcing them to switch from color printing to black and white to save money.

Observe progressive reverence for free speech on display:

Destroying fliers they don’t like is one of the many ways lefists use bully tactics to marginalize opposition and make conservatives feel like they are alone against the herd.

The Immortal Poetry of Robert Francis O’Rourke

Some say his record is devoid of accomplishments, but in addition to advocating tearing down border defenses and attempting to flee the scene after colliding with a truck while driving drunk, presidential candidate Robert Francis O’Rourke aka Beto has also written poetry. From a youthful piece entitled “The Song of the Cow,” via Daily Caller:

I need a butt-shine,
Right now
You are holy,
Oh, sacred Cow
I thirst for you,
Provide Milk.

Buff my balls,
Love the Cow,
Good fortune for those that do.
Love me, breathe my feet,
The Cow has risen.

Wax my ass,
Scrub my balls.
The Cow has risen,
Provide Milk.

Beto must be pleased with the treatment he has received from the liberal media establishment, which for reasons incomprehensible to countermoonbats finds him immensely appealing. Journalists are eager to provide the butt-shine, buffing, waxing, and scrubbing he desires.

Further down in the poem, he calls upon the cow to “thrust your hooves up my analytic passage.”

Less hilariously, he also wrote murder fantasies that involved killing children. An excerpt via Reuters:

“One day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles…. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams.

“As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.”

Looks like there could be more to Beto than we thought. No doubt moonbats will celebrate his edginess.

Why Democrats Can’t Primary Ilhan Omar

Ilhan Omar has humiliated Speaker Nancy Pelosi and has helped other maniacs like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib position the Democratic Party on the far side of the lunatic fringe, where votes are few outside inner cities. No doubt any rational people who have not yet walked away from the degenerating party wish they could unload this extraordinarily obnoxious Jew-baiting Islamomarxist. But that is easier said than done in Omar’s Minneapolis district, which is populated largely by Somali welfare colonists and mindlessly PC hipster millennials. It would be easy to find a vastly more qualified candidate to primary her, except that in this district, more qualified means more appealing to intersectional moonbats than an ultra-left woman of color Muslim refugee from Somalia. From The Hill:

“There’s definitely some buzz going around about it, but it’s more a buzz of is anyone talking about finding someone to run against her than it is anyone saying they’re going to run against her or contemplate it. There’s definitely talk about people wanting someone to run against her,” said state Sen. Ron Latz (D), who represents a portion of Omar’s district.

Here’s a possibility:

Minneapolis City Councilwoman [sic] Andrea Jenkins, the first openly transgender African-American woman elected to public office in the United States.

Any transsexual of politically preferred pigmentation has impressive qualifications for high office. However, Muslim tops transsexual in the Cultural Marxist caste system. Consequently,

Jenkins told The Hill on Wednesday [he] is not interested in running for Congress, and [he] backs Omar for reelection.

Jenkins says Omar has been “unfairly targeted” for shackling the Democrat Party to anti-Semitism.

Democrats could run Stalin himself and win in this district. Whoever wins the Democrat primary, wins the House seat. In turn, it appears that whoever gets the endorsement of the communist-infiltrated Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, wins the primary. That puts a Jacobin like Omar — who cannot be outflanked on her left — in the cat bird’s seat.

A similar situation may prevail at the national level, resulting in a Democrat presidential candidate no sane person would vote for. This is great news for Trump — unless the lunatic candidate wins. Then it is extremely bad news for all of us.

Device Allows Fathers to Breastfeed

Modern technology will be used to facilitate any manifestation of depravity, no matter how grotesque or even horrific, so long as it is compliant with the liberal agenda. Now Papa can breastfeed too:

Dentsu debuted its father’s nursing assistant in Austin, Texas at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival.

This moonbatfest was the perfect place.

According to Dentsu, the father’s nursing assistant is a wearable device that resembles a woman’s breasts and is equipped with a tank for milk or formula and a nipple.

It isn’t just about perverted dads who want to pretend to be moms. It’s about equality. Says Dentsu,

“Focusing on breastfeeding, we aim to decrease the amount of burden on mothers and increase the amount of time infants sleep by enabling fathers to breastfeed.”

Coming soon: the Dentsu strap-on polyethylene sperm-depositor. Why should men have all the fun?

At least Dentsu’s approach is less horrific than last year’s innovation, a chest-feeding kit that won the Meaning-Centred Design Awards grand prize:

The kit allows fathers to breastfeed by having them take a daily progestin pill once they learn their partner is pregnant and then six weeks before the baby is due they would begin taking domperidone. These two hormones would stimulate milk production in male fathers.

Doctor Moreau was asked for comment, but he was too busy hurling to weigh in.

Connecticut Supreme Court Okays Suing Gunmakers

Authoritarians will be pleased to see there is a way to disable the linchpin of liberty that is the Second Amendment. Lawsuits. All they need is a few irresponsible judges to rule in favor of tyranny. Connecticut comes through:

Gun-maker Remington can be sued over how it marketed the rifle used to kill 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, a divided Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

Never mind that Adam Lanza did not even purchase the gun but stole it from his mother. The goal here is to “do something” and to destroy the Second Amendment, not to be reasonable.

Also forget the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which explicitly defends gunmakers and therefore the Constitution against this idiocy. Liberal judges don’t interpret the law; they overrule it and replace it with their own laws.

In a 4-3 decision, justices reinstated a wrongful death lawsuit against Remington and overturned the ruling of a lower court judge, who said the entire lawsuit was prohibited by the 2005 federal law.

The lizard-like Senator and valor thief Richard Blumenthal was quick to capitalize:

Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, called the ruling a victory for gun violence victims that gives moment to an effort by him and other federal legislators to repeal the 2005 law.

Repeal would mean every time a gun is used as it obviously should not be, the media will tug on heart strings, Democrats will mobilize the mob, lawyers will go a-looting, and gun manufacturers will be sued into bankruptcy.

Sure, you have a right to bear arms in liberal utopia. You just don’t have a right to make, sell, or provide ammo for arms.

For a while, rich people will still have a meaningful right of self-defense, as lawsuits drive the price of guns into the stratosphere before manufacturers are looted completely out of existence. This is in keeping with the elitism of the Democrat Party, aka the Walls for Me Not for Thee Party.

Snarls Joshua Koskoff, a lawyer for the plaintiffs,

“The families’ goal has always been to shed light on Remington’s calculated and profit-driven strategy to expand the AR-15 market…”

Gunmakers have profit-driven strategies to expand their markets? By Marx, they are not only complicit in murder, they are capitalist swine!

Speaking of profit, there will be plenty ahead for trial lawyers as the same principle is applied to other products. Car manufacturers have lots of money. Why not sue them for a few hundred $million every time someone gets killed by a drunk driver?

The riches looters will be able to squeeze out of Remington are more limited:

Remington filed for bankruptcy reorganization last year amid years of slumping sales and legal and financial pressure over the Sandy Hook school massacre.

We will see if we are any safer when people start making guns in their basements because gun manufacturers have been put out of business.

MP Wants to Mandate GPS Trackers in Knives

You may be thinking, they are so relentless; maybe if we just give them what they want, they will leave us alone. But giving progressives what they want is the last way to get them to leave you alone, because they will always want more. Say we bypass the incremental chipping away at the Second Amendment and just let them ban guns. Will they rest on their laurels? Of course not. In Britain, having banned guns, they continue to encroach upon knives.

Earlier this week, we were discussing how the supermarket chain Asda will stop selling knives in Britain, probably to forestall government action. As mentioned,

A British judge has suggested banning large pointed kitchen knives. There is a ban on ordering a knife online and having it sent to a residential address. It is illegal in Britain to sell a knife to someone less that 18 years old. Lancashire Constabulary had an amnesty during which people could obey their slogan “Save a Live, Surrender Your Knife” without fear of prosecution.

Since then the insanity has escalated dramatically:

Scott Mann, a member of parliament representing North Cornwall, believes the United Kingdom needs a nationwide database of cutlery complete with GPS trackers embedded in every knife, allowing police to stop anyone carrying one.

Being a Tory, Mann has a libertarian streak; he would generously allow Britons to possess knives while fishing — so long as Big Brother can follow them with the GPS tracker.

There has been a surge in knife crime in the UK, caused by the government importing vast numbers of savages from the Third World while disarming the native population. Three-quarters of the perpetrators of knife crimes are minorities according to the London police.

Rather than back off on the transformation of Britain’s demographics or allow law-abiding citizens to defend themselves with firearms, authorities choose to incrementally ban knives, as if they actually believe this will prevent criminals from possessing them.

Coming soon: mandated GPS trackers in all blunt instruments.

AOC Does Not Understand Capitalism or Socialism

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — a driving force in the Democrat Party — is a socialist devoted to eradicating capitalism. Yet she does not understand either capitalism or socialism, mistaking moronic slogans for meaningful definitions. Successful businessman Andy Puzder of Carl’s Jr fame confirms it:

Oil but No Water in Socialist Venezuela

Under socialism, you eventually run out of everything except equality. This includes water, as those who have not yet escaped Venezuela are learning:

Residents in San Diego, Carabobo state, flooded social media with pictures and videos of the black water while complaining it had been contaminated with oil.

That gives an idea of how much oil Venezuela is floating on, which is why it was the wealthiest country in Latin America prior to socialism. Venezuela has the largest proven reserves of crude oil in the world. Under capitalism, that oil would be converted into money, and the money would build functional infrastructure that would provide citizens with water. Under socialism, the oil is useless, because you can’t drink it or even bathe in it.

The city has suffered with an intermittent water supply for months, made worse by a week-long power blackout that has completely cut it off in some areas, local journalists said. …

People have been forced to scavenge for water from sewers, drains and rivers. …

The blackout has worsened the situation of a country already facing a hyperinflationary economic collapse that has spurred a mass migration and turned once-basic items like corn flour and toilet paper into unaffordable luxuries.

Sympathy is tempered by the fact that Venezuelans voted for this. True, their elections have degenerated into charades, but this ball was started rolling when the Venezuelan version of Bernie Sanders was legitimately elected by the same sort of spiteful, envious fools who infest our own country in alarmingly large numbers.

Iran Takes Women’s Rights Leadership Role at UN

If the very mention of the United Nations does not make you laugh out loud, you must not have heard who just won a leadership position at the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), a characteristically farcical UN circle jerk that is supposed to advance women’s rights:

The United Nations’ body dedicated to “gender equality and the advancement of women” this week handed Iran a key role in evaluating “injustice and discriminatory practices against women” – on the same day as an Iranian court reportedly sentenced a women’s rights advocate to 38 years’ imprisonment and 148 lashes.

No member of the CSW raised an objection.

The UN is rotted through with moonbattery. Therefore, women’s rights are never the issue, because eroding Western Civilization is always the issue.

As an aggressive opponent of Western Civilization, Iran is well-suited for any UN leadership role. Never mind that it is a place where — in stark contrast to the USA — women truly are oppressed.

Iran has for years ranked near the bottom of the World Economic Forum’s annual “Global Gender Gap” report, which measures gaps between women and men in areas of political empowerment, economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, and health and survival.

Regarding women’s rights advocate Nasrin Sotoudeh, who got in such big trouble for not wanting to wear a hijab and for allegedly insulting supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,

State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino said Tuesday the U.S. was “outraged” at the reported sentence, calling it “beyond barbaric.”

The lines are clearly drawn. America represents civilization. Iran represents the opposition. The United Nations insidiously supports the latter.

Yet American taxpayers are forced to fund the UN. But at least we no longer have a president who favors Iran (see here, here, here, here, and here).

Students Fight for Right to Free Fabric Softener

Useless moonbats attending Sarah Lawrence College (annual tuition: $55,900), no doubt at someone else’s expense, have issued a long list of demands. Like a lot of greedy, arrogant nonsense, the demands are justified by the preposterous lie that the supposedly marginalized (which mostly means nonwhites but also includes militant sexual deviants) are somehow put upon. From the list:

• Free winter housing with a “communal kitchen” containing “dry goods from the food pantry”
• Free laundry detergent and fabric softener for all students
• Special housing for students of color
• On-campus jobs prioritize the hiring of international students
• Prevent students of color from being educated about history by “racist white professors”
• Reject funding from the Charles Koch Foundation and review the tenure of “racist” professor Sam Abrams
• All students have unlimited access to therapy sessions
• Permanent funding for minority student unions that is not paid for by the student body

Sam Abrams serves as their Emmanuel Goldstein because he wrote an editorial calling for ideological diversity.

They also demand that they not be punished for displays of “civil disobedience” like occupying the president’s office. I wasn’t aware that these brats are ever punished anyway; otherwise, wouldn’t they have been expelled by now?

This gives an idea of what a farce higher education has become: 36 faculty members have signed the absurd list of demands. They ought to be expelled too, in favor of instructors who have achieved an adult level of maturity.

This is what students do instead of learn to carry forth our cultural heritage at liberal arts colleges these days:

No way should even a penny of taxpayer money go to overpriced daycare services for 20-year-old kindergartners, directly or indirectly. We need to seriously rethink what college is for and who should be there.
