Segregation Returns to Restaurants

According to the “disparate impact” aspect of Critical Race Theory, the core ideology of our Democrat rulers, if something negatively effects blacks more than whites, it must be racist. Blacks have been less likely to be vaccinated than whites, and it is not because the vaccine is not available to them. Yet liberals have been ratcheting up discrimination against those who haven’t gotten the jab, even though vaccination makes no sense for anyone with natural immunity.

Democrats screech that asking voters to show identification is “Jim Crow.” If they stayed true to their own rules, they would admit that this is closer to Jim Crow:

Mark Milley and Rachel Levine Were High School Teammates

Two of the most infamously demented leftists aboard the ship of fools that is the Biden Administration have a connection going back to high school.

If Bob Woodward’s reporting is accurate, the absurdly overdecorated Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley committed straightforward treason during the Trump Administration in collusion with our communist Chinese adversaries. He has publicly espoused antiwhite race hate, and openly regards tens of millions of American citizens as enemies of the government.

Assistant Health and Human Services Secretary Richard Levine, currently known as Rachel Levine, is a grotesque female impersonator who killed elderly nursing home residents in Pennsylvania by the same means used by Andrew Cuomo, while rescuing his own mother from the fate he callously inflicted on others. He evidently favors using drugs and even surgery to permanently deform children in the name of radical transgender ideology — without parental consent.

If ever two moonbats were made for each other, it is Mark Milley and Rachel Levine, so the revelation that they played football alongside each other at Belmont Hill School in Belmont, Massachusetts came as no surprise.

As noted at BizPac Review,

This bizarre revelation comes as the administration is facing increasing criticism that it’s “wokeness” has become a debilitating impediment. …

Dinesh D’Souza … argued that “woke” Biden administration officials had been “having fantasies of … putting troops in high heels, maybe transgender surgeries, transgender bathrooms,” instead of focusing on what mattered.

“We have our eye off the ball. The Taliban has its eye on the ball,” he added.

Afghanistan provided a graphic example of what happens when you put woke kooks in charge of the military. Putting people like Milley’s teammate in charge of healthcare policy isn’t working out any better.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Dave Mustaine

As Nicki Minaj has been reminding us, not everyone in the entertainment industry is a spineless moonbat conformist. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine is an actual countermoonbat.

At a concert in Camden on Wednesday, Mustaine let his fans know where he stands on the authoritarian overreaction to Covid:

“I just want to tell you how great it is. Look around you, guys. Look to your right, look to your left, and look how wonderful this is. We’re all here together. … We’re not freaking out, and we’re not yelling at people, ‘Where’s your f***ing mask?’”

Megadeth concerts are the wrong place to look for mask Karens.

“F*** Joe Biden” and the chant “USA” erupted from the crowd. Mustaine continued:

“Right now, what’s going on is tyranny. This is called tyranny. Look it up when you get home. And tyranny isn’t only in government. Tyranny right now is in the schools and tyranny is in the medical business. … We have the power… we have the power to change things.”

That we do. But we will have to stand up to the moonbats and push back.

Baby Carriers and Racist Oppression

Moonbattery (a.k.a. political correctness, cultural Marxism, critical theory, progressivism, modern “liberalism”) may be the world’s first truly totalitarian ideology, in that absolutely nothing escapes it. There is no topic that information gatekeepers will not subvert into a denunciation of Caucasians and Western Civilization — not even baby carriers.

From Today’s Parent:

Modern baby carriers that we see and use today are based on traditional baby carriers that have been used all around the world for hundreds of thousands of years. …

This is why it’s so important to respect the cultures our babywearing knowledge comes from, as this ancestral practice existed long before it was popularized in the West. In fact, babywearing has often been denied to Indigenous and racialized parents and children through the process of colonization and assimilation. It was seen as “primitive,” less culturally acceptable or somehow lesser-than, since historically, European, British and white North American mothers typically used prams and strollers to carry their infants. …

As a babywearing educator working with new parents and baby-gear stores, I also emphasize how important it is to learn to pronounce the names of these carriers properly. When we mispronounce or shorten the names, we contribute to the “whitewashing” of babywearing culture, erasing the true origins and traditions.

Only a thought criminal we would whitewash cloth baby wraps by not pronouncing “lappa” with a Nigerian accent.

This is only fair, since the rest of the world is always careful to use correct American pronunciation when culturally appropriating electricity, air travel, refrigeration, television, zippers, lightbulbs, et cetera.

Preachy moonbats are repellently obnoxious, yet they are able to bully the herd into conforming to their odious ideology because they are ubiquitous and relentless.

Fat Phobia Indoctrination as Medical Education

Cultural Marxism calls for subjugating and destroying America by playing off aggrieved identity groups against the core population. For it to succeed, ever more Americans must think of themselves as oppressed minorities with no stake in the success of the overall culture. This is accomplished by fabricating or grossly exaggerating grievances, by lavishly rewarding the allegedly oppressed with special privileges and favoritism (e.g., Affirmative Action), and by creating new victim groups.

By now anyone with even the most tenuous claim to oppression has already been mobilized to tear down their own country. Social engineers have been reduced to hyping the imaginary injustice of “fat phobia”:

What are future doctors learning about in med school? Well, at the University of Louisville they’re learning about “the oppressive history of the Body Mass Index (BMI) within the medical industrial complex.”

According to woke ideology, encouraging people to maintain a healthy body weight is now a form of oppression inflicted upon those who self-identify as fat. Never mind that obesity is one of the most dangerous risk factors for dying of Covid.

An online seminar promises to discuss “the impact of body terrorism on fat LGBTQ+ people.”

The event is titled “The Intersection of Fatphobia and LGBTQ+ Health.” It aims to identify “best practices to reduce the harm experienced by fat LGBTQ+ patients in healthcare settings,” according to organizers.

Practicing medical professionals will be granted continuing education academic credits for participating in this tasteless farce. The corruption of medicine by left-wing politics — which has been on graphic display complements of Anthony Fauci, Rochelle Walensky, et al. — does not bode well for our future health.

Male Karen Stalks Maskless Woman in Target

As they consolidate control, moonbats continue to fundamentally transform America into a nightmarish science fiction movie. This scene from the 1978 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers is iconic:

The 2021 real life equivalent occurred when a woman tried to go about her shopping at Target without wearing a Covid obedience muzzle:

Not even Big Government is big enough to impose absolute tyranny by itself. It needs self-righteous volunteers like this male Karen to snuff out the last liberty.

If masks and vaccines do any good, this moonbat with his silly vaccination badge need not worry about whether other people avail themselves of them — except this is not about health, any more than renaming the Cleveland Indians is about protecting Indians from racist oppression. For leftists, bullying is an end in itself.

Kathy Hochul Forces Pointless Masks on Toddlers

Evidence accrues that New York Governor Kathy Hochul is even worse than the disgraced tyrant she replaced. Now she forces toddlers to attempt to breathe through snot-encrusted masks all day for no legitimate reason:

Wearing masks is particularly unhealthy for children (see here and here). There is no significant upside to making kids wear masks to counter the negative impact. Suppose the masks — which are probably rarely on their faces straight anyway — actually do protect toddlers from Covid; so what? Even the leftists at NPR admit Covid is no more serious than everyday viruses for small children. Only a lunatic would impose the masks in the name of the flu. Mask mandates are child abuse.

Speaking of leftists, here Wuhan gain-of-function funder and liberal icon Anthony Fauci reminds us that the masks are a silly waste of time even for adults:

Blood on Biden’s Hands

The leftists at Fakebook do not want you to hear John Ondrasik’s song “Blood on My Hands”:

With unusual speed, Facebook has blocked a Grammy-nominated songwriter from promoting his new tune that pays tribute to U.S. troops in Afghanistan and whacks President Joe Biden’s bumbled withdrawal.

On John Ondrasik’s page, Facebook said it was blocking an ad to promote his new song, “Blood on my hands,” because “it doesn’t comply with our advertising policies.” The reason was unclear…

On the contrary, the reason is plenty clear when you consider that ham-fisted Big Tech censors and the Democrat Party they helped install in power are two heads on the same Ghidra-like monstrosity.

As Ondrasik notes on his website,

America was built on the foundational freedom to criticize one’s leaders and hold them accountable. It is what separates us from our communist and dictatorship adversaries. How else can we as a nation learn from our mistakes and make better decisions moving forward without honest reflection on our actions? To date, I have not seen that accountability.

Shut up, the liberal establishment personified by Biden responds. But YouTube hasn’t censored his song yet:

Climate Math at The Economist

Formerly prestigious pillars of the liberal establishment like The Economist have cashed in their credibility to prop up the anthropogenic global warming hoax. Once again, Tony Heller counters today’s media propaganda with what was reported earlier. Archives reveal that global cooling caused disastrous weather throughout the 1970s, making a mockery of the lies we are told today:

You can see why Ingsoc employed Winston Smith to put down the memory hole past communications from the ruling oligarchy that countered the current party line. To impose the tyranny that the climate change crisis was fabricated to enable, progressives will have to erase the historical record.

Profiles in Countermoonbattery: Nikki Minaj

The military has always been a bastion of conservative values; progressives have attacked it from within by installing leftists like Mark Milley and Lloyd Austin in key positions. Now moonbats get a taste of their own medicine, as they are attacked from within their most secure redoubt — the entertainment industry. Nikki Minaj has doubled down on her rebellious stance.

First, she enraged the liberal establishment with a commonsense tweet advising those unsure whether to get the Covid jab as Biden demands to “pray on it & make sure you’re comfortable with ur decision, not bullied.”

The mob came at her like a swarm of flying monkeys. Admirably, she chose not to cower and apologize like most do these days, but to stand her ground and denounce leftist cancel culture, aptly comparing it to the totalitarianism imposed by the regime in communist China:

This illustrates why the country used to function and doesn’t anymore. No doubt there is plenty that most conservatives would disagree with Nikki Minaj about, but we can respect each other because we are all Americans who agree on the importance of fundamental freedoms like free speech and bodily autonomy. Liberals used to agree too — but not anymore, which is why Nikki Minaj has set their hair on fire.

Portland Teacher Does Not Tolerate US Flag

Leftist teachers love the Progress Pride flag so much that they not only hang in on the wall but suggest students pledge allegiance to it. Old Glory, not so much:

A Portland-area teacher who opposes her district’s vote to ban Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ Pride symbols in schools told local media that she removed the American flag from her classroom because it represents “violence and menace and intolerance.”

Only the most demented Democrat could miss the irony. If any symbol perfectly symbolizes violence, menace, and intolerance, it is the Black Lives Matter flag, which stands for Marxism, wanton crime, arson, looting, and hatred of American heritage and of Caucasians. LGBT symbols represent degeneracy and sexual depravity; placing them in schools violates any remaining laws against corrupting the innocence of minors.

Gail Grobey, an English teacher at Newberg High School and former president of the Newberg Education Association, said her union is mobilizing against a newly approved resolution by Newberg Public Schools that bans overtly “political” imagery on campus, including the Black Lives Matter and Pride symbols.

But she wouldn’t have a problem with banning the American flag — not until the day comes that Democrats replace the red and white stripes with rainbow colors and the stars with black supremacists’ favorite slogan.

The irony — or rather mind-bending hypocrisy — gets heavier still. Grobey growls that not being able to ram her authoritarian brand of politics down children’s throats demonstrates that “Big Brother wants to control what we support or what we talk about.”

It is parents who would like some control over what left-leaning teachers talk about. That’s why cameras are needed in classrooms. Parents need to be able to monitor the video feed online.

Grobey reacts to her nation’s flag like a vampire to the Holy Cross:

“When I see [board member] Trevor DeHart sitting there at those board meetings with that giant American flag behind him, it’s terrifying.”

Maybe moonbats are right to be terrified. Maybe there will be a reckoning on behalf of the imperiled nation Old Glory represents. Maybe kooks like herself will soon find themselves muttering their deranged malice to squirrels from a park bench rather than getting paid with our money to impose it on impressionable children.

CNN’s Kasie Hunt Goes Off Reservation

Uh oh. CNN just hired Kasie Hunt and already she is off the reservation. Check out her Twitter thread on the final day of the recall election that threatened to dethrone California’s personification of the liberal ruling class:

CA GOV BIG PICTURE: One of the top Democrats in the country got caught living like an elite while everyone else suffered. Elites vs. the rest is the driving force in our politics right now and Democrats have a tough needle to thread both in California & nationwide…

Of all the Democrat DAISNAID hypocrites, Newsom was among the most irritating, due to his skeevy cheesiness. Few will forget him dining indoors with lobbyists at the extravagantly expensive French Laundry while other restaurants were forced to close due to the same pointlessly tyrannical Covid restrictions that also shut down public schools while he sent his own to a ritzy private school.

Democrats need to prove they can govern for EVERYBODY, and if you look at California — it’s not necessarily the best test case for national Democrats (see: concern about homelessness, crime, etc) …

Only Biden himself could make it more obvious than Newsom that the Democrat Party serves Democrats alone and is viciously hostile to everyone else.

Republicans not named Trump did learn they had unrealized opportunities with working class voters (including Black and Latino voters) as they watched 2020 returns roll in …

Democrats will have to work hard to prevent Hispanics from assimilating, because once they do, many if not most will switch parties.

Obviously California is a Special Place — but the fact that a Democratic national star in waiting *faced* a recall and then had to fight hard for it midway through the campaign does say a lot about the potential challenges Democrats face across the map …

Only 8 months into his administration, Democrats would have to cheat on an industrial scale to get Biden through a recall election. Already, only mindlessly loyal Democrats approval of this disastrous presidency. As the full impact of this shuffling catastrophe filters through his mainstream media defenses, his support will continue to collapse.

…especially if President Biden can’t demonstrate he’s capable of getting the resurgent pandemic under control, has another competence crisis a la Afghanistan, can’t get his budget plan through Congress, etc.

If there is one thing we can count on with a corrupt, incompetent, senile leftist in the White House, it is more crises coming over the horizon.

Hunt’s astute analysis was not well received by the rest of the liberal media. This thoughtful counteranalysis by an MSNBC “intelligence commentator” is representative:

Let’s hope most of them really are too arrogant to acknowledge their arrogance and rein it in before next year’s midterms.
