Episode 529 – Fire Them All

The Elon Mush/Twitter saga continues.

We now have a Ministry of Truth.

And how does a software glitch ruin a marriage?

 

Fire Them All

Project Veritas released an audio of an all hands meeting Twitter had after Elon Musk bought Twitter. It is very telling. It involves the Chief Marketing Officer, Leslie Berland and Chief Executive Officer, Parag Agrawal. We are going to break this video up a bit to address it, step-by-step.

Here is the Chief Marketing Officer, Leslie Berland, not mincing words about what she thinks of Elon Musk:

Some things:

  • How is Musk going to deal with the mass exodus?
    • This is a real problem with today’s generation. They all believe they are irreplaceable.
    • What will Elon do? Hopefully, get the chance to fire all these people before the “mass exodus”.
    • And who is this bitch? How does she know Elon Musk? What has he actually done that makes his ethically questionable?
    • He needs to fire this bitch.

Here is the chairman of the board of Twitter, who will not have a job soon, commenting on how Twitter needs to continue doing what its doing:

Some things:

  • This guy is either stupid or lying to his snowflake employees.
  • The reason Musk bought Twitter is because he thinks he can run it better (which he can).
  • How do I know this? He tweeted it.
  • The fact that he doesn’t know this shows how out of touch Twitter management.

Here is Berland, again,

Some things:

  • This broad is so gone.
  • Who isn’t going to oversee Elon Musk is any employees from Twitter. He’s the f-ing owner of a company that he’s taking private so the government has less say when it comes to regulation.
  • Another question: Who was watching Twitter when they started shadow banning people because they didn’t like what they said?
  • Safety is a BS word.

Here is the current and soon-to-be-out-of-work CEO, Parag Agrawal,

Some things:

  • First thing about this guy is he is into censorship. He does not believe in free speech. He has said that. He has tweeted that. He’s not from this country. Our priorities are not his priorities.
  • Again, all this is in the name of safety. That’s because the Left believes words are violence.
  • What he is also doing here is smart. He’s saying Twitter needs to continue doing what they are doing but in a different way.
  • I don’t think he knows what that way is but he’s pushing his employees to figure it out in the next six months.
  • He needs to go. I bet he will be gone.

Here’s Berland again. She obviously really doesn’t want to work for Twitter anymore. Here, she questions Musk’s trustworthiness:

Who is she to determine Musk’s trustworthiness? She is in charge of a lot of shadow banning and censorship in the company. Shouldn’t we be questioning her trustworthiness?

Here is Agrawal not getting that Musk is smarter than him and the board:

Some things:

  • Musk did not join the board because they knew he would not have a say in Twitter’s operation.
  • He would never learn what was happening.
  • And he would never be able to buy more than 14.9% of the company.
  • Musk is pretty smart. He outsmarted the Twitter board.

Here is Agrawal, again, making a case for Musk to fire him:

Some things:

  • This is what the Left does. “What is free speech?” It’s what Twitter wants it to be.
  • This is the problem with these people.
  • Freedom of speech is really direct. It’s in the Constitution. But these people think they are smarter…no, more just…than the Founding Fathers. So they can ignore the Constitution.

Elon Musk needs to fire everyone and he will.

By the way, there were tears. Of course there were.

I do want to point something out. This was leaked by an employee to Project Veritas. Do you know what that means? There are people at Twitter who don’t agree with executive management.

That’s a good thing.

I Think It’s Time for a Reboot

Joe Biden did a press conference yesterday and it didn’t go well at all. He spoke at a teacher of the year event at the White House (don’t get me started on the teachers of the year crap).

Here he is talking about the kids not belonging to the parents:

Yeah, run on this. Make stronger the new political interest group known as parents.

I watched Gutfeld last night and Todd Piro had a great answer to this statement:

That’s right.

Here is Joe Biden answering a question about the recession we are heading to:

He’s not worried about a recession because it’s not going to affect him. He’s going to be fine. He will finish being President, move into one of his mansions and live life well with all the Chinese and Russian money his son has been collecting. We are the ones who are going to get screwed.

I am so tired of him pointing to the unemployment numbers. His administration didn’t create a single job. He just opened the economy and people went back to work. Again, he doesn’t include people who have left the workforce.

Then, Joe Biden’s brain went through a system reboot. These are always fun:

Now, normally I wouldn’t make fun of a man going senile right in front of us but this guy is making life miserable, hates America and ruining the country so screw him. I think it’s funny.

He really does need to resign. He’s getting worse. I’m thinking by the end of the year, he will be drooling during these press conferences.

They’re Making Huxley and Orwell Look Like Nostradamus

The head of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Myorkas, spoke in front of Congress yesterday. He was addressing his failure on the border (which he said he was not failing and everything is fine). But I’m not going to talk about this. He made another announcement about creating a department of misinformation in the DHS.

Gee, what a coincidence that they decide to do this right before an election that they are going to get smoked in and after Elon Musk buys Twitter. This is very dystopian, tight out of George Orwell’s 1984.

But, what’s worse, the head of the agency, Nina Jankowicz, is a Left wing hack. The New York Post put out an article basically saying that she notorious for spreading disinformation!

Here’s what they said she did:

  • She embraced and promoted the bogus Clinton-campaign-created Trump-Russia dossier.
  • She waged war on The Post’s true and accurate reporting of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
  • She worked for the far Leftwing Wilson Center.
  • She frequently writes hit pieces for lefty news outlets.

The NY Post stated:

Look: She’s a career left-wing partisan, from her days working at the National Democratic Institute to her Fulbright-Clinton fellowship to her gig at the left-leaning Wilson Center where she routinely did media hits with NPR, CNN, PBS and so on while placing New York Times and Washington Post opeds. Hiring her for this job just shows how detached from reality and broad American society the entire Biden team has become.

Plus, why does the administration even need another disinformation czar when it already has Jen Psaki?

But it gets worse. Apparently she’s a bit of a ham on social media. Here is her singing a little ditty on, I think, TikTok.

This is an unserious administration.

He Should Have Married a Woman

According to the Daily Wire:

A “fictosexual” man can no longer communicate with his “wife” of four years. Akihiko Kondo, a 38-year-old Japanese man, wed a holographic image of the blue-haired anime character Hatsune Miku in 2018. The character is described as 16 years old, the New York Post reported.  

Kondo fell in love with the character in 2008 after he became ostracized from his peers following intense bullying at work. Technology made it possible for the anime fan to interact with her beginning in 2017 thanks to a Gatebox machine. This $1,300 device allows users to interact with characters using holograms. This was also how Kondo was able to “marry” the object of his affection.

Believe it or not, fictosexuals are part of the LGBTQ community.

According to TheFocus, “fictosexual is also an umbrella term that encompasses a list of other identities including more specific attractions such as novel/visual characters (booklosexual) and vampire-related characters (tobousexual).”

They fall under the asexual spectrum because they’re not attracted to people. Unsurprisingly, this group has their own version of the pride flag.

This guy spent $18,000 on a wedding.

Apparently, the company that made the hologram went out of business and no longer support the hologram machine. There ended up being a software glitch and now the guy can’t talk to the hologram anymore.

Go figure.

Episode 528 – Administration of Apathy

Jen Psaki addresses the Bishop Evans death and it’s less than satisfactory.

I have another reason why not to send your kids to college.

And everything is racist.

 

Sociopathic

Let’s go over this:

  • Specialist Bishop Evans jumps into the Rio Grande River to rescue a person crossing illegally over the border.
  • Evans goes under the water and that’s the last time he’s seen. A search begins to find the body because the National Guard said he was gone.
  • The two people he rescued turned out to be drug smugglers from a cartel.
  • That happened on Friday. There was no statement from the Biden administration. on Friday.
  • On Saturday, the Biden administration doesn’t say anything. The search for the body continues.
  • On Sunday, the Biden administration doesn’t say anything. The search for the body continues.
  • On Monday, the Biden administration doesn’t say anything. The body is found.

On Monday afternoon, with no comment from Joe Biden, Jen Psaki has her daily press conference. She is asked about Bishop Evans and this is what she says:

Oh, that’s your response? Really, Joe can’t express his outrage?

He had no problems “expressing” his outrage when Border Patrol was riding horses and it looked like the horse reigns got close to the illegal aliens as if they might be whipping them. And that’s the best response from this administration?

As of Tuesday, Joe Biden hasn’t said anything about this. Is it because it’s his fault? Well, a reporter asked Jen about that. Here’s her response:

Oh, so it’s Texas’ fault. Last I checked, border security was the job of the federal government. The job of the state government is to protect the state residents. So, if the federal government doesn’t do its job and the state citizens are facing danger from illegal aliens, and the state does something and someone does because the federal government didn’t do anything, its still the state’s fault?

Yeah, run on this. I know Republicans are.

By the way, so are Democrats in Texas, Arizona and Nevada. The same Arizona and Nevada that were purple states and will be red in November.

By the way, Joe Biden still hasn’t addressed this.

 

Speaking of the Border

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced Monday afternoon:

“In a lawsuit originally filed by Missouri, Louisiana, and Arizona, our Office just obtained a temporary restraining order to keep Title 42 in place. This is a huge victory for border security, but the fight continues on.”

Just a reminder, Title 42 is a Trump era policy that allows the Border Patrol to send captured illegal aliens back over the border due to the China virus. It was set to expire on May 23. DHS has estimated that, if the order ended, up to 18,000 people a day could cross the border. To give an example of the problem that could come about, we are currently being overwhelmed and only see about 6000 a day. The Border Patrol says the max they can deal with is about 1500 a day.

The Biden administration was going to let the policy end with putting any other rules in place, basically opening the borders. The Biden administration says it will respect the ruling.

In other border news, the Supreme Court is hearing arguments for the Migrant Protection Protocols better known as the Remain in Mexico policy. That law was also brought on by Trump to make it that people have to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims are being processed. The Biden cancelled that policy his first day in office but Texas and Missouri sued.

Those opposing the policy say it can create a dangerous situation for the migrants waiting in Mexico, where conditions aren’t always healthy or safe. DHS also says the program puts strain on the United States’ relationship with Mexico.

Those who like the policy say it is a useful deterrence to potential illegal aliens. It did work. Under this policy during the Trump administration, illegal immigration lowered to about 30,000 a month.

I don’t think any of this matters. The Biden administration has neutered the Border Patrol to the point they can’t stop anybody.

I’d Take That Class

According to the Daily Wire:

Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah, is still planning to offer a course studying hardcore pornography following an outpouring of backlash online, a representative from the private college said Thursday.

The May summer term class, “Gender 3000 – Porn,” has the description:

Hard core pornography is as American as apple pie and more popular than Sunday night football. Our approach to this billion-dollar industry is as both a cultural phenomenon that reflects and reinforces sexual inequalities (but holds the potential to challenge sexual and gender norms) and as an art form that requires serious contemplation. We will watch pornographic films together and discuss the sexualization of race, class, and gender as an experimental, radical art form.

Awesome. That will give the nerds something to do during the week besides playing video games and D&D. You know men will be taking this class in the hopes of finding some freakish female students. But you know this is going to be a sausage-fest because no chick would take a class like this.

I don’t have much to say about this except my grandchildren shouldn’t go to college.

That’s Racist Now?

According to KIRO7:

“Pot,” “weed,” “grass,” “Mary Jane,” “flower” — there is no shortage of terms to describe cannabis. However, Washington state is taking one word officially off the table: “marijuana.”

Legislators recently passed a law that changes every Revised Code of Washington with the word “marijuana.” The change gets rid of the term, swapping it out for the word “cannabis.”

Supporters say the word “marijuana” has a long history of racism.

According to Washington state Rep. Melanie Morgan:

“The term ‘marijuana’ itself is pejorative and racist. As recreational marijuana use became more popular, it was negatively associated with Mexican immigrants. Even though it seems simple because it’s just one word, the reality is we’re healing the wrongs that were committed against Black and Brown people around cannabis.”

Joy Hollingsworth, who own a couple of pot farms in Washington and sells it legally along with hemp products, testified in front of the Washington lawmakers:

“It had been talked about for a long time in our community about how that word demonizes the cannabis plant. It was … Anslinger that said and I quote, ‘Marijuana is the most violent causing drug in the history of mankind. And most marijuana users are Negroes, Hispanic, Caribbean, and entertainers. Their satanic music, jazz and swing results from marijuana usage.’”

The quote she’s referencing is by Harry Anslinger, who was the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (which later became the Drug Enforcement Administration). He was involved in the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937, which banned selling or possessing weed.

You know, I am glad they are doing this simply because cannabis is a lot easier to spell than marijuana. Even as I was writing this script, I misspelled marijuana. I don’t even call it marijuana, I call it weed so this is no skin off my neck.

The term marijuana comes from Spanish Mexico where they grew the plant for the hemp, not to smoke it. It was also grown in Asia, parts of Europe and the United States for the hemp. It was called marijuana long before people figured out is could be smoked. The term wasn’t coined because it was a drug. So their logic is way off and getting rid of the name because some obscure politician in 1937 said that people of color or colored people (whichever term is politically correct) used it.

Also, by changing the name, aren’t they confirming that people of color are the ones using it? Aren’t they showing their own racism? Here’s the thing, I didn’t marry the term marijuana with black people. I never thought of it because I know a ton of white people that smoke it. It’s the Washington “woke” politicians that pointed it out to me.

Finally, don’t the politicians in Washington state have more important things to do? They have high crime, a homeless problem, a drug problem and their state is still suffering from damages over the 2020 riots. Maybe the politicians in Washington should worry about those problems.

Episode 527 – So Salty, So Sweet!

The world is on fire because Elon Musk now owns Twitter. And the tears from the Left are so salty and sweet.

 

Twitter Has a New Boss!

Twitter is officially owned by Elon Musk. The reactions are just delicious. I talked about the deal yesterday and there’s not more to it. But the reactions are so funny, I can’t them go.

What is Elon Musk going to do? We don’t know. When the sale went through, he tweeted this:

He also tweeted this:

Here are some things Musk wants to do:

  • Manipulate spam and bots.
  • Create a subscription service for blue checkmarks.
  • Get rid of ads.
  • Expand the content limit for those who have subscriptions.
  • Use timeouts instead of banning accounts.
  • Make the algorithms open source for transparency.
  • Soften content moderations.
  • Create an edit feature for the tweets.
  • Follow the laws of the countries it is allowed.

So, as you can imagine, the Left is flipping out.

 

The White House

Jen Psaki, during her press conference yesterday, was asked about the acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk and what the White House was expecting.

Here is Psaki being asked about misinformation on social media. Listen carefully:

Some things:

  • First off this is a loaded, leading question.
    • Who is the White House to talk about misinformation? They have been wrong about everything.
      • The vaccines.
      • Masks.
      • Hydroxychloroquine.
      • Ivermectin.
    • Most of the misinformation is coming from the White House. Who are they to determine who’s wrong?
  • Psaki admits, again, that they are working with social media to censor what they want to censor. Which, by the way, makes social media the propaganda wing.
  • And it took Musk, a free speech advocate, for the White House to ask Congress to do something. Interesting.

Here is Jen being asked if the President is upset that Trump might be allowed on the platform:

Some things:

  • She never answered the question.
  • She brings up the reforms again. In other words, she’s threatening Twitter.

By the way, CNBC released an article saying the Biden administration is upset at the prospect of Trump going back on Twitter.

I don’t think Biden is upset about it. I don’t think he knows what’s going on. But this puts his candidacy for 2024 in jeopardy because Trump won the 2016 election on social media.

By the way, Trump said he would not go on Twitter because he wants to continue using his new platform, Truth Social. What a dumb idea.

 

The Media

The media is just as bad. The world is ending. I only found a couple but they were funny.

Here is Brian Stelter on CNN addressing the apocalypse.

Some things:

  • How is this guy still on CNN. He fat, funny looking and can’t speak.
  • His analogy is terrible. I don’t even get it.
  • There will be rules on Twitter. Twitter isn’t going to be the wild west. You know who knows that? Elon Musk.
  • And if anyone knows how to get advertisers, I’m sure it’s Elon Musk. He is smarter than any of the analysts.
  • I also think he has huge plans for this thing. I don’t think we will be able to recognize Twitter next year.

Here is some guy from MSNBC that, I don’t know, I just can’t believe he said this:

This statement is so out-of-touch I can’t believe he, his producers or anyone else at MSNBC didn’t catch this.

Everything that he said would happen to Democrats and Leftists under Musk has been happening to Republicans and Conservatives under the current Twitter regime.

  • Donald Trump is banned. But the leaders from Russia, Iran and China are not.
  • Assassination attempts on Libs of TikTok were ignored, but I called a trans female traitor by his dead name and I’m banned.
  • Parody sites like the Babylon Bee are banned for disinformation are banned but Snoop Dog’s video shooting of Trump is allowed.
  • The NY Post’s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop is banned, before the election, but the Russia hoax is not.
  • Twitter banned the woman who accused Bill Clinton of rape!

Run on this guys. Run on this.

But there’s more. The Verge and Newsweek released articles on how to get rid of your Twitter account. This is pointed to Leftists. Mind you, Musk is a Libertarion or a classical liberal. He’s not a Conservative.

 

Finally

Let’s look at the general population.

So far, everyone is threatening to leave Twitter. Only two people have left so far that I know of and I don’t even know who they are. Barbara Streisand threatened to move to Canada. FYI: Twitter is in Canada.

Actress Jameela Jamil, who is an outspoken leftist and LGBT advocate, tweeted:

“Ah he got twitter. I would like this to be my what lies here as my last tweet. I fear this free speech bid is going to help this hell platform reach its final form of totally lawless hate, bigotry, and misogyny. Best of luck.”

Then she killed her account. Bye bye.

Faux activist and black man, Shaun King, who is known for doxing and actual hate speech, tweeted:

“At its root, Elon Musk wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right. It’s about white power.”

“The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist. He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech.”

“So for me, this isn’t about left vs right. Not at all. It’s about how the richest man in the world, a son of Apartheid, raised by a white nationalist, wants to be sure his speech, and that of other white men, isn’t censored.”

Then he killed his account. Notice these people have to tweet before they get off of Twitter to tell us we are getting off of Twitter? These people will be back in a week.

Actor Rob Reiner wrote:

“Now that Elon Musk is buying Twitter, the question for all of us is: Will he allow a Criminal who used this platform to lie and spread disinformation to try to overthrow the US Government to return and continue his Criminal activity? And if he does, how do we combat it?”

At least he didn’t mention Trump by name this time. Here, he just calls him a criminal.

It wasn’t all bad. Conservative actor James Woods was thrilled about the move. He tweeted:

“I’ve never been a proponent of electric cars, nor do I ever wish to fly into space. That said, @elonmusk  is a hero. He proved that capitalism will crush socialism every time. #BravoElonMusk.”

In a statement, Jack Dorsey, founder and former CEO of Twitter, said:

“I love Twitter. Twitter is the closest thing we have to a global consciousness. The idea and service is all that matters to me, and I will do whatever it takes to protect both. Twitter as a company has always been my sole issue and my biggest regret. It has been owned by Wall Street and the ad model. Taking it back from Wall Street is the correct first step.”

“In principle, I don’t believe anyone should own or run Twitter. It wants to be a public good at a protocol level, not a company. Solving for the problem of it being a company however, Elon is the singular solution I trust. I trust his mission to extend the light of consciousness. Elon’s goal of creating a platform that is “maximally trusted and broadly inclusive” is the right one. This is also @paraga’s goal, and why I chose him. Thank you both for getting the company out of an impossible situation. This is the right path…I believe it with all my heart.”

I’m beginning to like the hippie again.

But the good statements was few and far between.

Here’s this guy on TikTok bitching about Musk ending democracy and implementing fascism.

This guy doesn’t know what fascism and democracy are. Free speech is part of democracy. I would rather belong to a fascist state if it looks like the democracy that I know.

Also, notice these idiots call it fascism when freedoms are given but democracy when freedoms are taken away?

Twitter employees are flipping out.

 

Then there’s this from Bloomberg Business:

Unauthorized changes? Twitter is a publicly traded company and subject to Sarbanes Oxley compliance. Any changes require documentation per regulation.

The best thing Elon Musk could do is fire everyone. I wouldn’t wait six months until the company goes private.

Elizabeth Warren, who hates Musk, tweeted:

She doesn’t have an issue with Jeff Bezos owning the Washington Post.

Pramila Jayapal tweeted:

Actually, that’s just a lie. He paid 30% taxes for a total of $5 billion. That’s the most anybody has ever paid in taxes, ever. the 3.27% taxes is his income combined with his unrealized wealth, which isn’t taxed. He should be prepared for attacks from Leftists in Washington DC and Hollywood.

The ACLU tweeted:

The ACLU has gone straight into the crapper. They used to defend all free speech. They once defended Neo-Nazis and their right to spew anti-Semitic hate. Now, equity  and social justice is more important than free speech.

 

What I Think

Here’s what I think is going to happen:

  • No one important is leaving Twitter. It is too big a platform. Anyone who leaves will come back eventually because Musk is going to open discourse.
  • There will be attacks against Twitter:
    • The government will try to regulate it. That’s going to be tough to do with a privately traded company.
    • They will try to tax Musk out of existence. That will never pass Congress.
    • Hollywood is already planning propaganda films about Musk, Tesla and Space X.
    • There are going to be investigations.
    • There are going to be accusations.
  • Elon Musk is going to make Twitter a ton better.

But, what’s most important, we are winning the culture war.

  • CNN+ is gone.
  • Netflix is dying.
  • Disney is floundering.
  • Critical Race Theory and Critical Gender Theory is being eliminated.
  • And where CRT and CGT are being pushed, people are leaving those states.

We always could have won the culture war. We just needed to start fighting it.

Episode 526 – Frigging California

Remember that compliment I had for Gavin Newsom last week? Well, California got right back to crazy. Let’s compare California to a smart state.

Darwin’s theory comes to light.

And Kamala can’t seem to get anyone to stay with her.

 

News

Some news:

  • Elon Musk and Twitter could reach a deal for the tech billionaire to buy the social media platform as early as today.
    • Could exceed $46.5 billion.
    • Musk made his offer of $54.20 per share.
    • Twitter and Mush negotiated late into the night and early morning.
    • As I have said before, Musk is going to make Twitter private, fire all the board members and management and open up the platform again.
    • Be prepared for a Trump re-emergence.
    • We will talk more about this tomorrow because Barrack Obama made some comments this weekend which will fit nicely into this story.
  • The soldier is identified as 22-year-old Bishop E. Evans from Arlington, Texas.
    • It was initially reported he rescued a woman. He did not.
    • He rescued two drug mules.
    • His body still has not been found and he’s assumed to have drown.
    • The Biden administration still has not commented on the death.
    • This comes on the eve of Title 42 ending next month.

Frigging California

California is at it again to make it the most f-ed up state in the country. Let’s take a look at some of their new laws that will convince anyone with an ounce of common sense and morality to move from this craphole state.

 

AB 2223

California is trying to pass a law, AB 2223, that, if read literally, could legalize infanticide for babies up to 30 days after birth. The section in question is 7a of the law. It states:

7(a) Notwithstanding any other law, a person shall not be subject to civil or criminal liability or penalty, or otherwise deprived of their rights, rights under this article, based on their actions or omissions with respect to their pregnancy or actual, potential, or alleged pregnancy outcome, including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death. death due to a pregnancy-related cause.

I have to be honest: I was a little miffed with the language. I do not like what they are pushing but I did not see what was th big issue. I had to do a little research to figure out what was going on.

According to the National Catholic Register:

At issue is one part of the bill, Section 7(a), which reads: “Notwithstanding any other law, a person shall not be subject to civil or criminal liability or penalty, or otherwise deprived of their rights, based on their actions or omissions with respect to their pregnancy or actual, potential, or alleged pregnancy outcome, including miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion, or perinatal death.”

The bill does not define “perinatal death.” But in response to objections raised by the California Catholic Conference and other groups, Wicks amended the bill to read, “perinatal death due to a pregnancy-related cause,” language pro-lifers say is too vague.

The California Welfare & Institutions Code defines perinatal as “the period from the establishment of pregnancy to one month following delivery.”

I want to point something out. California is not the first state to push infanticide. New York and Virginia have some extremely loose abortion laws. Remember, Virginia governor and black face enthusiast, Ralph Northam said:

So this is nothing new or particularly surprising.

I am not going to go into the immorality of abortion and the California legislators know what they are doing. This isn’t an accident. In fact, I might surprise you. I think this is a good thing. Abortion was suppose to be “safe, legal and rare” and that narrative seemed to be working out for the pro-abortion people. Of course we knew that’s not what they meant. Even Josie thought abortion would be OK in the right situations.

But, as usual, the Left can’t help themselves but go to extremes. This is overboard. It won’t be supported and I doubt its even Constitutional. Let the Left go to these extremes. Like the murders of infants in Washington DC and Philadelphia, this will not be overlooked.

 

AB 2932

Here’s another good one. California is trying to pass a bill, AB-2932 wants to make it that the work week is only four days or 32 hours a week. Anyone who is “forced” to work over 32 hours, or regular hours, has to be paid, by the business, time and a half. The law would apply only to businesses over 500 people. If someone is earning a salary, the salary cannot be dropped, giving the salaried employee a raise.

Way to go California. Way to kick businesses out of California. This is probably not constitutional. But, hey, this is the state that wants to force businesses to put trans people on the boards of companies which, by the way, is unconstitutional.

Assembly member Cristina Garcia was asked about this and she said:

“Well, again, this only applies to companies that have 500 or more employees. This does not apply to small businesses out there. And yes, there might be an increase in salaries you have to pay and that’s not a bad thing.

The reality is that we have a worker shortage, like more than 60 percent of businesses are reporting… their bottom line is already being affected, they’re already struggling.”

By the way, this broad has never run a business. And what’s the unemployment rate in California going to be like when those businesses with 500 or more employees leave California or just shut down?

The California Chamber of Commerce released a statement:

It said the bill “imposes a tremendous cost on employers and includes provisions that are impossible to comply with, exposing businesses to litigation,” and that its “impact on labor costs in California will discourage job growth in the state,” noting that “up to one million jobs may be lost” if it goes into effect.  

Peter Rex, CEO of Rex, a technology, investment, and real estate firm, moved his company from California to Texas three years ago. He said:

 “…California, as a result, is going to continue to lose relative strength and power and competitiveness as an economy and people are going to continue to move out because business leaders like myself are going to move out…”

I need to get out of this state.

Here’s What A Good State Does

Want to know what a real state does?

Tennessee just passed a law in the state senate that would require intoxicated drivers convicted of vehicular homicide to pay child support if the victim of the offense was the parent of a minor child.

The summery of the legislation states:

“if a defendant is convicted of vehicular homicide due to intoxication or aggravated vehicular homicide and the victim of the offense was the parent of a minor child,” then the sentencing court must make the defendant pay “restitution in the form of child maintenance to each of the victim’s children.”

This is common sense legislation that consequences to crimes and give relief to victims.

I don’t have anything else to say about it.

Dumbass

According to the Daily Wire:

A Colorado man has died 24 hours after lighting himself on fire in front of the United States Supreme Court on Earth Day as part of what appears to be a religious protest against the use of fossil fuels and in order to bring attention to climate change.

On Friday evening, Washington, D.C., first responders airlifted Wynn Bruce, a 50-year-old climate activist, to a local hospital after he engulfed himself in flames. He later died Saturday evening despite medical efforts to save his life.

Wow.

The article continues:

Those reportedly close to Bruce are emphasizing that he did not consider this to be an act of suicide, rather that he was simply practicing Shambhala Buddhism and viewed the intentional act as one of self-immolation in order to draw attention to the supposedly damaging effects of climate change.

Ok, I have some thoughts.

First, environmentalism is a religion. People who practice it hate all other religions (except Islam). This, like all religions, is a religion of faith. But that faith is cynical. It is faith that the world is going to implode and we are all going to die unless we do something (though what that something is is not definable). So, what they do is just force people to pay attention to it with shock values. They can’t reason their points. They have no solutions (solar and wind? Give me a break).

Second, Darwin was wrong about a lot but he was right about this. The dumbasses will kill themselves. This sounds cruel but, if you’re honest with yourself, you know I’m right. Do you want this dumbass’s DNA in the gene pool.

Ciou to this guy.

She Gets a Free Aide

Imagine this:

  • You just get out of college with a political science degree.
  • You have no idea what you are going to do with a poly sci degree because they are pretty worthless and you don’t have the grades or LSAT scores to get into law school.
  • You apply to a job your aunt recommended to be a political aide.
  • Turns out that politician is the Vice President of the United States.
  • She accepts you and you are now working for the Vice President of the United States.
  • Great opportunity, right?

Question for you: How bad does it have to be that you would leave your job working for the Vice President of the United States and leave you career options in doubt?

Even if the Vice President is this dope:

Apparently, working with her is pretty bad. Heck, 72% of the population knows that.

According to the Daily Wire:

Tina Flournoy is the latest aide preparing to leave the vice president’s office, per The Washington Post. Flournoy, who has worked for Harris since December 2020, will reportedly be replaced by longtime Democrat operative Lorraine Voles. A dozen Harris advisors have now fled, including her deputy chief of staff, national security advisor, and communications director.

That is her 13th aide that has left. Shouldn’t be a surprise. As Political reported in June of last year:

“In interviews, 22 current and former vice presidential aides, administration officials and associates of Harris and Biden described a tense and at times dour office atmosphere. Aides and allies said Flournoy, in an apparent effort to protect Harris, has instead created an insular environment where ideas are ignored or met with harsh dismissals and decisions are dragged out. Often, they said, she refuses to take responsibility for delicate issues and blames staffers for the negative results that ensue.”

That’s our next President.

Episode 525 – We Should Applaud When a Lesson Is Applied

Let’s listen to some new Kamala-isms.

Police save a child but wokesters can’t see the heroic actions of the police.

Colleges continue to push the normalization of pedophilia.

And Ibram X. Kendi keeps talking himself into irrelevance.

 

Kamala-isms

We have done this in a while which means we haven’t done this is a couple of days. Let’s listen to some Kamala-isms.

Here Kamala talking to a bunch of soldiers from either the Air Force or Space Force. I don’t know which:

What? What questions does space make us ask? How does nothing which is space actually connect us together? If there is more space doesn’t that mean that we are less connected?

Anyway, here is the dumbest thing said this week. He took a load of crap for this one:

The first thing that came out of this was Hunter’s laptop and the E-mails that said 10% goes to the “big guy”. And the E-mails where Hunter is paying for Joe’s mortgage, house upgrades and cell phone bills.

Old Joe also has two houses in Delaware, both 7000+ square foot mansions. One a beachside property. I’m pretty sure he’s doing OK.

 

Hell Just Froze Over

I am going to do something that I have never done before. I am going to commend California Governor, Gavin Newsom.

I know, hell has frozen over.

According to the Los Angeles Times:

Six weeks after Gov. Gavin Newsom unveiled a far-reaching effort to push more people into court-ordered treatment for severe mental illness and addiction, homeless advocates are calling it legally misguided and immoral as the proposal’s first public hearing at the state Capitol has been delayed.

More than three dozen organizations and individuals, including the American Civil Liberties Union, Disability Rights California and the Western Center on Law and Poverty, signed an April 12 opposition letter raising serious concerns with Assembly Bill 2830, one of two nearly identical measures moving through the Legislature to implement Newsom’s Community Assistance, Recovery and Empowerment Court. The groups often have significant sway among liberal legislative Democrats, the kind of influence that could hinder Newsom’s hopes for a new law to be in place by July 1.

Newsom touted the CARE Court framework last month as an innovative strategy to guide an estimated 7,000 to 12,000 people into housing and much-needed treatment. Under the proposal, family members, behavioral health care providers and first responders, among others, could petition a civil judge to initiate a CARE plan for eligible individuals who lack medical decision-making capacity.

The governor said that CARE Court would focus on the most vulnerable Californians suffering from severe mental health conditions such as schizophrenia and individuals who have cycled in and out of hospitals and jails. The program would be voluntary and include assistance from both a public defender and a so-called supporter, a person who would serve as a personal guide through the recovery process.

This is a start and you know it’s a good start when the ACLU doesn’t like it. Well, f- the ACLU and all those other groups. They don’t live here and don’t have to walk around the crap and drugged out bodies on the sidewalk. They aren’t worried about some nut-job pushing them into traffic.

This is still a weak law. We need to go further. The sanitarium system need to be brought back. That includes forcible incarceration in the appropriate institution with the appropriate treatments. And we need to make homelessness a crime. It is not a right. One does not have the right to impede on someone else’s quality of life.

But Newsom will puss out. He always does.

Even Blacks Can Have a Life Lesson

According to the New York Post:

Syracuse police are under fire over a viral video that captured three white cops taking an 8-year-old black boy to a patrol car after he allegedly stole a bag of Doritos from a convenience store.

The footage shot by Kenneth Jackson and widely shared on social media shows the crying boy being detained by the officers on Sunday, the Post-Standard reported.

Here is the audio from the video which shows the strong reactions from one of the witnesses:

So here’s the story:

  • Three kids went into a convenience store and stole some potato chips.
  • The police were called and the police, who dealt with this kid (8 years old) before, grabbed the kid off his bike, cuffed him and put him in the car.
  • The boy was crying bloody murder. He didn’t want to go to jail.
  • Guy was yelling at the cops about arresting a kid.
  • The cops ended up taking the kids home but before putting the fear of God into them.

Of course, the cops were white and the kid was black so that was made into a big deal. The mayor was called and he called the police commissioner. If I were the police commissioner, I would have told the mayor to f-off. Those cops are heroes. They probably helped save that kid from a life of crime. After all that trauma, do you think that kid is going to steal chips again. Or worse when he gets older?

And that’s the other thing. Yeah, he is a kid. Most criminals, though, start off as kids and do stupid crap like this with no consequence. Then they do something worse in the future. It just gets worse.

And that’s another thing. The kid did commit a crime. It doesn’t matter how old he is, it’s still a crime. There is a victim. This is a problem with our society. We don’t feel sorry for the victims or want consequences for the crime. We just want the crime ignored. The problem with this desire is the crimes are getting worse.

Finally, why is this a national news story? Why is this being covered by, USA Today, ABC News, Yahoo News, Vice, and two British papers, the Daily Mail and the Independent? The media isn’t even covering the Brooklyn subway shooter anymore.

Well, we know why. White cops are all criminals and people of color who are criminals are victims. That’s the narrative and the media will not stop pushing this.

They’re After Your Kids

Remember how I told you that they were going to try to normalize pedophilia? It started with a group that tried to become part of the LGBTQ group (North American Man Boy Love Association or NAMBLA. This is a real thing and they have a website). Then, it went to rebranding the term pedophile by calling the Minor Attracted Persons (that teacher was fired).

Now, we have teachers that are flat out defending pedophilia.

According to the Post Millennial:

Professor David Finkelhor of the University of New Hampshire participated in a March 23 talk discussing the “elements of voluntary participation” by juveniles involved in sex crimes, saying that when trying to prevent sex crimes against children, it’s key to realize that in some cases, it is the children themselves that are “initiating sexual activities with adults.” Finkelhor is the Director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at UNH.

Listen to him:

This is really scary because the education system is, not only normalizing pedophilia, it’s excusing it. This will start in college and then bleed down into high schools and then into elementary schools. How do we know this? That’s exactly what happen with the gay movement. That’s exactly what happened with the trans movement. It will happen within the next couple of years if we don’t get out heads out of our asses.

Now, some things with this guy’s logic. Mind, he’s an “expert” in child sex crimes.

  • If a young person initiates sexual activity with an adult, the adult backs that kid off. That’s what adults do. The kid doesn’t know what’s good for her.
  • He mentions that the relationship with a kid could be “consensual” and, therefore, the pedophile should not be held responsible. A child cannot consent until 18. That’s the law. So it is not possible to consent with a child.

This is coming from a teacher who teaches college students about crimes against children. Let that sink in.

Speaking of Racist

 

The day after Glenn Youngkin won the Virginia governor’s race last November, a Wall Street Journal headline declared: “Youngkin Makes the GOP the Parents’ Party.” Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio exulted in this new party line on Twitter: “The Republican Party is the party of parents.”

Polling data showed this new branding to be as misleading as the GOP’s framing of critical race theory. In a September Fox News poll, white respondents opposed the teaching of critical race theory by 24 percentage points, while respondents of color were more than twice as likely to favor CRT than oppose it. William Saletan at Slate concluded, “When Republicans talk about a parental backlash against CRT, they’re not talking about all parents. They’re talking about white parents.” Michelle Ruiz summed up in Vogue what has since emerged as the near consensus: “The GOP doesn’t want to be the party of parents; it wants to cement itself as the party of white parents.”

The reason I like f-ing with Kendi is he’s so stupid. He is so easy to read and completely dismantle his theories.

  • Youngkin did not win because of critical race theory. He won because Critical Gender Theory led to the rapes of two girls by the same “trans” girl and the school covered it up.
  • Youngkin said that all these “critical” theories, including critical race theory, are all crap and shouldn’t be taught.
  • Most blacks in Virginia didn’t want this crap being taught either. They thought it was divisive.
  • By the way, notice who he quotes? Slate. One of the most Leftist rags on the Internet. It’s like quoting something from Wikipedia. This big teacher should know better.
  • Already, this article is invalidated, but I’ll read on.

The Republican Party is clearly not the party of parents. The Republican Party is certainly not the party of parents of color. But is the Republican Party even the party of white parents?

Some things:

  • Yes, Republicans are the party of children,
    • We want to teach them real history.
    • We don’t want them to hate each other.
    • We want parents to know what’s happening with their kids.
    • We don’t want them to sterilize themselves with hormone treatments.
    • We don’t want our kids to chop parts of their bodies off.
    • We don’t want our girls to share restrooms with horny boys who say they are girls.
    • Yes I think we are the party of kids. Even black kids.

But this great myth is not as rudimentary as the great lie. It represents a Trump Tower of GOP propaganda, built over the past year on four hugely false conceptual building blocks:

  1. Republican politicians care about white children.
  2. Anti-racist education is harmful to white children.
  3. Republican politicians are protecting white children by banning anti-racist education.
  4. The Republican Party is the party of white parents because it is protecting white children.

Yes, that’s exactly what we are saying.

Every great myth is built on a foundational assumption, a fallacy widely assumed to be true. The foundational assumption of this great myth is that Republican politicians care about white children. But if they did, then they would not be ignoring or downplaying or defending or bolstering the principal racial threat facing white youth today. And I am not talking about critical race theory, which Republican propagandists have quite intentionally redefined, as one admitted, remaking it into a threat, and obscuring the real threat.

Um, huh? He proves my point.

Kendi’s foundational assumption is that every white person is racist. To be a an antiracist:

  • You must admit you are a racist, then you’re a racist.
  • If you don’t admit you are a racist, that’s because you are a racist.
  • See the circular argument. If you are white, you can’t win.

This guy wrote a book because he thinks white kids are racist at birth! It’s called, My Racist Baby. I am going to do a video log and read you that book, even showing you the pictures.

I think our foundational assumptions are the big problem here.

What are white children being indoctrinated with? What is making them uncomfortable? What is causing them to hate? White-supremacist ideology: the toxic blend of racist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic, and anti-Semitic ideas that is harmful to all minds, especially the naive and defenseless minds of youth. Which group is the prime target of white supremacists? White youth.

Damn, we white people have issues.

John, a father of two, knew that his 15-year-old white son enjoyed playing multiplayer shooter games online, according to NPR. In games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, players form teams online with friends and strangers. John knew that his son talked with teammates in private online chats. “This is the norm for kids,” John told NPR. “Instead of hanging out at the drive-in they’re all online.”

Some things:

  • Again, referencing NPR, a Leftist site.
  • Notice that everybody he describes has to have the descriptor of race?
  • I agree with him here. There’s lots of crap on the Internet. Get the kids off of it.
  • According to Abigail Shrier’s research for the book, Irreversible Damage, most kids learn about gender theory over the Internet.
  • Kids should be outside in the fresh air.

Many white-supremacist recruiters are online now too, and John’s son started gaming with some of them. These grown men asked this impressionable teenager about his problems in school. They suggested that his Black classmates were to blame and passed along racist literature.

Sounds like John needs to act like a father and take care of his kid.

In 2021, the Anti-Defamation League released a report finding that nearly one in 10 multiplayer gamers ages 13 to 17 had been exposed to white-supremacist ideology. An estimated 2.3 million teens each year are exposed to white-supremacist ideology in chats for multiplayer games like World of Warcraft, Fortnite, Apex Legends, League of Legends, Madden, Overwatch, and Call of Duty.

But the exposure to white supremacy through online video games is eclipsed by the 17 percent of 13-to-17-year-olds who encounter white-supremacist views on social media, according to the same ADL study. TikTok’s abundance of young users makes it a major recruiting ground for white supremacists. One study of TikTok videos promoting extremist views found that almost a third “amplified white supremacy.” In addition to anti-Black views, the TikToks also spewed offensive content about Asians, queer people, migrants and refugees, women, Muslims, and Jews.

OK, the Internet is evil. But to say that it is only white supremacist ideology on the Internet is just not accurate. The reality is that there aren’t that many white supremacists.

And yet, there might be more white-supremacist material preying on vulnerable young people on Instagram than on TikTok. White supremacists deploy all sorts of memes, especially Doge, Pepe the Frog, and Cheems. A marketing researcher found that 79 percent of 13-to-17-year-olds share memes.

“Memes are easily consumable and they are funny,” Patrik Hermansson, a researcher at the U.K.’s Hope Not Hate, told Insider. “The humor makes them easier to swallow.”

Oh, no! Don’t attack memes!

The more that white kids swallow white-supremacist memes—and like and share them—the more they are introduced to troubling and extreme material. The algorithms for social-media apps and search engines enable this “‘slow roll’ process,” researchers told Insider. Just like innocently inviting a stranger into a multiplayer game or chat room, innocently liking a “funny” meme can lead children into a dangerous hole of white-supremacist ideology. While in the hole, youth may be “groomed” through direct messages that are sent en masse by white supremacists. “You see 30-somethings talking to 14-year-olds and kind of grooming them for the far-right ideology,” the far-right-extremism researcher Miro Dittrich told Insider.

I’m on Twitter all the time. I have yet to see a white supremacist meme. But I do see a lot of LGBTQ and antiracist memes. And, if you’re worried about this, get your kids off the Internet.

Instead of focusing on this very real threat, Republican politicians—to justify Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law—have cited QAnon conspiracy theories about public schools being overrun by child predators who are “grooming” children to be gay. A spokesperson for Governor Ron DeSantis reframed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill as an “anti-grooming” bill. But if QAnon Republicans really cared about white children, then they would be worried about white-supremacist grooming. This is the grooming that parents of all children should be worried about.

Some things:

  • The bill is not called “Don’t Say Gay”. He invalidated his argument again.
  • Most Conservative and Republicans do not know what QAnon is. This term is a demonization of any Conservatives.
  • Kendi need to subscribe to Libs of TikTok on Twitter. These people are grooming children. They’re very open about it.
  • Don’t forget: a substantial number of teachers are leaving the Florida school systems because that can’t talk about their sex lives.

Grooming white kids—usually males—in white supremacy can involve inciting them to commit acts of physical and verbal violence. Against kids of color. Against girls. Against Jewish kids. Against Muslim kids. Against trans kids. Against queer kids. Against other white kids. Defending kids against white-supremacist grooming keeps all kids safe.

Experts know—and white supremacists know—which white kids are most vulnerable to grooming: kids seeking a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging; loners and excluded kids; and depressed kids. And depression among “white teens seems to be rising faster than among other groups,” Derek Thompson recently reported in The Atlantic.

Again, he references a far Left publication, The Atlantic. 

I’m done with this article.

Other things he’s said:

“Instead of focusing on this very real threat, Republican politicians—to justify Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law—have cited QAnon conspiracy theories about public schools being overrun by child predators who are ‘grooming’ children to be gay. A spokesperson for Governor Ron DeSantis reframed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill as an ‘anti-grooming’ bill. But if QAnon Republicans really cared about white children, then they would be worried about white-supremacist grooming. This is the grooming that parents of all children should be worried about.”

The article concluded:

“The Republican Party is not the party of parents raising white kids. The Republican Party is not the party of parents raising girls, raising trans kids, raising kids of color, raising queer kids, raising poor kids, raising immigrant kids. The Republican Party is making it harder for all of these kids to learn about themselves and their histories. The Republican Party is stripping parents and educators of their collective ability to protect vulnerable children from being indoctrinated by—or victimized by—the scourge of white supremacy.

“This Republican Party is not the party of any group of parents, but the party of white supremacy.”

This guy is a bozo. Good news: his philosophy is waning. In five years, he’s going to be irrelevant.

Episode 524 – White People Made the Dogs Eat People?

The Biden administration is going to fight this block on mask mandates to the death. There’s a reason why.

The squad is about to have a new member and she’s pretty. AOC, watch out!

And everything is racist!

 

They Just Refuse to Take the “L”

The Department of Justice has decided to appeal the decision by a federal judge to halt the mask mandates on public transportation.

The DOJ said in a statement:

“The Department of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) disagree with the district court’s decision and will appeal, subject to CDC’s conclusion that the order remains necessary for public health. The Department continues to believe that the order requiring masking in the transportation corridor is a valid exercise of the authority Congress has given CDC to protect the public health. That is an important authority the Department will continue to work to preserve.” 

Some things:

  • This is a waste of time.
  • The mandates were only be for two more weeks.
  • The ruling was correct. The judge said that the CDC cannot do the job of Congress and that’s what happened.

The Biden administration, as unpopular as it is, could have made this into a winning proposition. He could have said, “Well, it is only for another week and a half so let’s just end it.” He would have been seen as a hero. But he can’t do that. In fact, watch, the lockdown will kick up again. The mandates, the vaccines, heck, maybe the lockdowns again. There are a couple of reasons for this.

The first is they are going to get killed in November and stealing the election could be the only way to limit the losses.

The second involves the government trying to create a new normal. A new normal where big government rules all. A world where oligarchs and media control the news and narrative. A world where we stop driving, stop eating meat and own nothing. A country where the government can confiscate your money and give it to other people. A country where your kids are wards of the government to be indoctrinated. Claus Schwab of the World Economic Forum excitedly wrote two books about this change occurring thanks to the China virus.

He wants this and Joe Biden supports it. I have told you none of this was an accident.

But there is good news: The new normal is being rejected. Not only in this country but all over the world. We are going to talk about this more in the coming months.

Speaking of Being Tone Deaf…

According to Fox News:

Pennsylvania candidate for the U.S. House has been open about her past as a part-time stripper in college and her decision to get an abortion when she was 18.

This, who is running for the Democratic nomination for a Philadelphia-area congressional district, has used her past to drive attention to her progressive campaign platform, including by starting an OnlyFans page for herself that is not associated with her campaign.

 

Some things:

  • This gal has made some very poor decisions in her life including killing a baby.
  • And, no, being pro-abortion is not being pro-life.
  • Abortions are done out of selfishness not “love”.
  • She’s till making bad decisions. She sells naked pictures of herself on OnlyFans, a porn site even though she got a masters degree in Public Health.
  • She is going to be another member of the squad. She is a Leftist on everything.

This is another Leftist idiot that has been molded by the education system. She will be embraced by the media because she’s pretty.

Can’t Get Out of Their Own Way

According to ABC 13 News:

While going through its library of content for films and shows to put on its streaming service, Disney has reportedly labeled a few of its beloved characters as “potentially problematic,” according to a report from the New York Times.

Tinkerbell and Captain Hook from the classic 1953 Disney animated movie “Peter Pan” reportedly fall under the category of characters who could possibly require a disclaimer on the Disney+ streaming service, as they could be seen as perpetuating negative stereotypes.

The whole New York Times article was about how Disney is being thrust into the culture war over Florida’s Don’t Say Gay bill and are being attacked by the far right. Yeah, I know. It’s the Parental Rights in Education bill. Disney was not “thrust” into anything, they jumped into the culture war. And the far right isn’t attacking them. It’s parents that don’t want their kids indoctrinated weird sex theories cancelling their Disney+ subscriptions and not going to Disneyland.

Anyway, Disney has the equity department called the Stories Matter team. On Disney’s website, the describe themselves like this:

Stories shape how we see ourselves and everyone around us. So as storytellers, we have the power and responsibility to not only uplift and inspire, but also consciously, purposefully and relentlessly champion the spectrum of voices and perspectives in our world.

As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures. Rather than removing this content, we see an opportunity to spark conversation and open dialogue on history that affects us all. We also want to acknowledge that some communities have been erased or forgotten altogether, and we’re committed to giving voice to their stories as well.

We can’t change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of.

The Stories Matter Team is consulted by third-party organizations, such as the African American Film Critics Association, GLAAD Media Institute, and the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, among various others.

In other words, these are professional worthless people that have to find something wrong in everything in order to justify their bloated salaries.

They found a few characters to be problematic:

  • Tinker Bell is jealous of Peter Pan’s attention toward Wendy, and because she is “body-conscious.”
  • Captain Hook, who famously has a prosthetic hook where his hand would be, was reportedly flagged because he exposes Disney to accusations of prejudice against disabled individuals due to his villainous nature.
  • Ursula the Sea Witch from Disney’s 1989 animated classic “The Little Mermaid.”
    • Ursula could come across as “queer-coded,” and therefore her flamboyant behavior is potentially homophobic.
    • Ursula is of dark complexion and of a darker, light-purplish skin tone, the villainess was also reportedly a potential target of critics who would see her as a possible racist depiction.
  • They already nailed a couple of movies:
    • In Aristocats, a cat with slanted eyes and buck teeth is noted by the team to be “a racist caricature of East Asian peoples.”
    • In Dumbo, a murder of crows who perform musical number is noted by the team to be an “homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations.”
    • Peter Pan is also a recipient of the advisory warning, as the team says the animated film portrays Native Americans in a stereotypical manner.

Wokeness destroys everything. Even those that are woke.

Everything is Racist

According to Campus Reform:

The Animal Farm Foundation, a non-profit “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for ‘pit bull’ dogs and their owners”, has launched a new initiative to combat “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.”

In its statement, the AFF cites the work of Ann Linder, a Legislative Policy Fellow with Harvard Law School’s Animal Law and Policy Program. According to her paper, “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation”, pit bulls have been unfairly tied to “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.”

Also referenced is the work of Emory University associate professor of philosophy, Erin Tarver. In her work “The Dangerous Individual(’s) Dog: Race, Criminality and the ‘Pit Bull’,” Tarver applies French philosopher Michel Focault’s notion of “the dangerous individual” to what she sees as modern racialized attitudes towards pit bulls and the “perceived threat to normative whiteness” such animals pose.

Despite accounting for just 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, pit bulls were responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. 

That’s right! Pit Bull ownership needs to be controlled, not because they eat people, but because it is a symbol of racism.

The college’s student paper states:

“racialization, using this interspecies intersectionality to ‘identify troubling dynamics and inheritances…but also to disrupt what is a very common logic in animal advocacy, in which racism is simultaneously engaged and erased through appropriative and substitutive moves.’”

The article continues:

(Harlon) Weaver began his talk by stating that “stigma” aimed at “communities of color” posed a threat to pit bulls, stating that “tacit heteronormative whiteness” is not good for the dogs. According to him, America is “presenting injustices faced by pit bulls as like racism by appropriating the rhetoric and often the effects or emotions associated with race related social justice issues.” 

As the event continued, Weaver argued that pit bulls tend to be put in shelters due to “pervasive racism and misogyny, a struggle to sustain a living wage and myriad other injustices”, according to the college’s newspaper. 

So it’s not because pit bulls have a tendency to eat people, it’s all white people. OK.

Episode 523 – Do As I Say, Not As I Do

A judge puts a halt to masks on airplanes.

A Washington Post reporter doxes one of the best accounts on Twitter.

And a black face controversy hits and unlikely target.

 

It’s Over

A federal judge, Kathryn Mizelle, ruled that the federal mask mandate on all modes of travel is to be blocked. That includes planes and trains.

According to Newsweek:

Federal judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle struck down the national mask mandate for transportation including airplanes and trains on Monday.

Mizelle, appointed by former President Donald Trump, ruled that the mandate exceeded the authority of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Her lengthy 59-page ruling also said the CDC failed to justify the mandate.

In her ruling, Mizelle said the only remedy is to void the mandate as it would be impossible to end it for only those who objected by filing the lawsuit, according to the Associated Press.

“Because our system does not permit agencies to act unlawfully even in pursuit of desirable ends, the court declares unlawful and vacates the mask mandate,” she wrote.

It is about time.

As you can imagine, people on planes were told they could remove their masks and there were nothing but cheers.

 

The Lib’s Reaction

Needless to say, the Left is blowing up about this. Not sure why. Well, I am.

Here is Jen Psaki lamenting the ruling:

This administration just doesn’t get it. They keep pushing unpopular policies that they don’t even believe in. Now, they are looking to waste time going to court to fight the ruling?

They keep going with recommending that people wear masks on planes anyway and people should ignore the ruling:

Guess what, most people are just ignoring their recommendation. Her recommendation also goes against science. Airplanes are very safe because of the filtration systems they have. There has et to be a super spreader event on an airplane.

The media is busy attacking the Trump-appointed judge that made the ruling. They are complaining Mizelle is not qualified to be a judge.

  • Rolling Stone ran with the headline, “Trump-Appointed Judge Deemed ‘Not Qualified’ by Bar Association Voids Mask Mandate on Planes, Other Travel.”
  • Newsweek said: “Trump’s nomination of Mizelle drew criticism from some in the legal community. At the time, the American Bar Association (ABA) wrote in a letter to Senators Lindsey Graham and Dianne Feinstein they determined she was “not qualified” for the position.”
  • Podcaster Brian Tyler said: “This is Kathryn Kimball Mizelle. She is a Federalist Society judge who worked for Clarence Thomas. The American Bar Association said she is unqualified to hold office, but Republicans confirmed her anyway after Trump, She just ruled the CDC can’t require masks on planes.”
  • Writer Charlotte Clymer said: “Since 1989, the American Bar Association has assessed federal judicial nominees for consideration by the Senate. Of the 1,400 or so nominees assessed, just 22 have been rated ‘not qualified. Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, who just struck down the flight mask mandate, is one of them.”

Mind you, Republicans pushed to have Mizelle on the court. Marco Rubio actually recommended her to Trump in a letter. Her real crime is she clerked for Conservative Supreme Court Justice, Clarence Thomas.

Blue checks on Twitter are also flipping out:

Some things:

  • The pandemic is over.
  • Democrats continue to go in the wrong direction. This is all going to come to a head in November.
  • The mixed messaging has created the paranoia.

This Is Just Evil

There is an awesome account on Twitter called the Libs of TikTok. Basically what she does is get videos of crazy-ass Leftists making jerks out of themselves. Her goal is simply to show how crazy these people are.

Here’s an example:

Mind you, she doesn’t even comment much on these videos. She just posts them and lets normal people make their own judgements. Hell, she doesn’t even need to comment on them.

To this point, she has remained anonymous. The reason is she is afraid of being cancelled. She knows this is a thing because Twitter suspended her account simply for saying men are men and not women. She has been interviewed a couple of times by Tucker Carlson but never reveled herself.

Well, the Leftists can’t have that. So they needed to find out who she is and have her cancelled. Taylor Lorenz of the Washington Post took it upon herself to find out who this gal is and she did.

In her article:

  • She gave her name.
  • Where she lived.
  • Her career.
  • How she was at the Stop the Steal event on January 6th.
  • How she’s an Orthodox Jew with some kids.
  • How she promoted right wing propaganda.
  • How she’s anti-trans.
  • How Libs of TikTok is affecting legislation including the Florida bill, Parental Rights in Education.
  • She accuses Libs of TikTok of “cancelling” teachers.
  • She accuses Libs of TikTok of doxing teachers and school board members.
  • She accuses Libs of TikTok of promoting death threats.

So this Lorenz hunts her down, goes to family members and doxes her. She’s doing exactly what she accuses Libs of TikTok of doing. I will go on a limb here, Libs of TikTok doesn’t dox.

The gal who runs the site says all is OK and she is safe. If anything happens to this woman, she should sue the crap out of Lorenz and the Washington Post.

What’s ironic is that Taylor Lorenz is known for being very much against doxing on the Internet of any kind. Listen:

Here she starts crying because of the harassment she gets on the Internet. She even said she suffers PTSD from all the harassment she gets. Here she is:

She is an evil sociopath and deserves everything she gets.

Oops

According to the New York Post:

Two local diversity advocates in Arizona are taking heat after calling a school district racist for hiring a DJ to perform in blackface — but it turns out the DJ was black. 

Stuart Rhoden and Jill Lassen — who specialize in diversity, equity and inclusion — lambasted the Scottsdale Unified School District’s Hopi Elementary PTA for its decision to hire Kim Koko Hunter, 56, a local black DJ, at a charity event.

Both Rhoden and Lassen, who are involved in diversity work in the school district, slammed the school after seeing a picture of Hunter, only to later learn his race, according to the Arizona Daily Independent

Oops.

The problem with all these diversity and equity people is that they have to look for anything that might be wrong even if it’s not there to justify their jobs. I saw this when I worked.

Hunter did have a comment about this. He said:

“They thought that the DJ there or the person there was in a black face, and the person that they thought was in black face was me. Wait a minute, in their defense, how many chips in the ice cream did you see? They were probably thinking the same thing I am: Wow, there are no black people here.”

So there you go. The white people were racist after all, not the people who said he was in black face.

Episode 522 – Who Didn’t See This Coming?

Happy Easter! That means there needs to be some God-bashing in the news media and it took about a minute to find some.

What we knew was going to happen has happened in the prison system.

And Hollywood just doesn’t get it that no one likes woke movies.

 

Told You This Would Happen

According to the Daily Mirror:

Two inmates of a women only prison have fallen pregnant after having consensual sex with a transgender inmate, it has been reported.

The women are among 800 people, including 27 transwomen, being held at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility in Clinton, New Jersey.

In a letter sent to US outlet NJ 105.5, an inmate claimed that one of the women, who is not eligible for parole until 2104, was five months pregnant.

The letter said that the inmates had a history of sex acts in public areas and had to be separated.

Demi Minor has claimed to be the person responsible for impregnating the two prisoners via a website Justice 4 Demi, which she is understood to help run from prison.

Some things:

  • The man, Demi Minor, I don’t know what his real name is, is sentenced to 30 years for manslaughter. That means he probably is in prison for murder.
  • He committed the murder when he was 16.
  • New Jersey prisons began housing transgender inmates who identify as women at women’s prisons last year following a lawsuit at the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey.
  • The lawsuit followed claims from a transgender woman who said she was abused at a male prison.
  • One woman, who is in prison for essentially life for murder, wrote a blog post called Freedom, Love, Pregnancy and Trauma about being in prison is traumatic and that she’s in love with this guy.
  • Oh, yeah, this gal has been disciplined several times for having sex with inmates in public which, surprisingly, is against prison rules.
  • Shae said: “Surprisingly I am three months pregnant and I conceived while incarcerated here at Edna Mahan Correctional Facility. Although Edna Mahan breeds a ‘pervasive culture of rape’, I WAS NOT RAPED, nor was I forced to do anything that I did not want to do. Despite it not being permitted I fell in love and had consensual sex with a woman who is trans. Consensual sex is a prohibited act in Edna Mahan.”
  • New Jersey’s policy does not require trans women inmates to undergo gender-reassignment surgery to be held in the facility.
  • NJ Police union President William Sullivan told NJ.com: “We opposed this policy change believing it would be detrimental to the general population of female inmates being housed at Edna Mahan and also bring added stress to our correctional police officers assigned to this institution.”
  • ACLU legal director Jeanne LoCicero has argued: “(It’s) in line with New Jersey’s strong anti-discrimination laws that prevent discrimination and harassment on the basis of gender identity.”

So let me get this straight: Not only does society have to pay to house two murderers (I don’t know who the other chick is), we have to pay for this guy’s transition surgery (which will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars) but now we have to pay for the two illegitimate kids this guy has fathered because he’s acting like a woman and he has the right to be in a women’s prison?

Makes sense to me.

Yeah, People Will Pay to See Those

According to the Daily Wire:

LGBT remakes of  the cult classic “Fight Club” and the romantic comedy favorite “My Best Friend’s Wedding” are in the works as Hollywood continues to inject woke culture into everything these days — apparently including classic movies.

Cindy Crawford’s model daughter, Kaia Gerber, will star in an upcoming film titled “Bottoms” that’s been described as a Lesbian version of the famed 1999 thriller starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Jared Leto, reported Deadline magazine in a recent piece.

I need to ask you, does Hollywood make movies that have the goal to fail at the box office? I mean, look what they did to Ghostbusters.

I also want to point out that the theme of Fight Club is how men have lost their masculinity and creating the fight club allowed them to express their brute masculinity. In fact, the most powerful character in the movie was a woman. See the irony here? They are going to take the masculinity out of the movie where masculinity is the theme. How do you think that’s going to work out?

The Daily Wire continues:

And not to be outdone in the woke department, the outlet recently reported that Oscar-winning actress Ariana DeBose will star in a twist on the famed Julia Roberts romantic 1997 film “My Best Friend’s Wedding.” Only this time the movie will be told from the point of view of DeBose character who’s described as “a bisexual Latinx.”

The movie “Two and Only” is being executive produced by DeBose for Screen Gems with an original screenplay by Latina and LGBTQ+ writer Jen Rivas-DeLoose.

Yeah, that’s what my fiancé is going to watch on our Netflix and Chill night.

The wokesters just don’t get it. People just don’t care about any of this crap. Least of all women. Men may want to watch because of the lesbian thing. Let’s face it, most straight males love the thought of hot, half-naked chicks fighting. I’m pretty sure that’s not what the writers and producers of these films is going for.

Speaking of No One Buying This

According to Fox News:

The Biden administration this week rolled out a number of strategies across government agencies to promote racial equity and support “underserved communities” to fulfill an executive order from President Biden.

Biden signed an order on Inauguration Day directing agencies to “pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.” 

Here are the details:

  • More than 90 agencies, including all Cabinet departments, released their plans, outlining more than 300 strategies and action plans to make federal policies fairer.
  • The Department of Homeland Security released a plan that will focus on everything from naturalization, access to humanitarian protection, bidding on DHS contracts, countering all forms of terrorism and targeted violence, filing complaints and seeking redress in DHS programs and activities, airport screening and accessing Trusted Traveler Programs.
    • DHS vowed to “identify barriers that may impede access to naturalization among underserved communities” and remove those barriers to make the naturalization process easier.
    • DHS said it will “expand engagement” with small businesses that are owned by or that support “members of underserved communities.”
    • The department also said it would work to “expand gender-identification options” for certain traveler programs like TSA PreCheck.
  • The Pentagon announced it will seek to rearrange its supply chain in order to open up opportunities for underserved communities.
    •  It will also bolster a variety of programs aimed at assisting those same communities in the area of military bases, such as American Indian initiatives and environmental efforts.
    • They have changed the physical requirements necessary to join the military.
    • They have loosened their uniform and hair style requirements.
    • They are still fighting to get women to serve in combat.
  • Department of Labor is strengthening enforcement of wage and hour protections, while the Department of Housing and Urban Development is working to eliminate the racial gap in home ownership.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency said that it is developing a framework to evaluate the impacts of pollution on underserved communities and helping households with low incomes to weatherize their homes.
  • The Justice Department is improving language access to its programs to help people with limited English proficiency better report crimes, while the Interior Department is providing technical assistance to Native American tribes to help them apply for grants.

All this is so stupid and racist.

Of Course, This Had to Come Out

So, it’s Easter and Passover. It’s also Ramadan but I don’t think that’s relevant to this story because Muslims, for whatever reason, are immune from the religious persecution that Christians and Jews are put through. Like I said in the past, I lived with a Muslim family for a couple of years and they were very religious. Heck, they were as Conservative as I am and it was thanks to their religion.

Anyway, I expected to see some anti-Christian opinion pieces. But, to my surprise, I found one opinion piece go farther.

Here is an opinion piece by Shalom Auslander called In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God. Damn, God is one evil SOB!

Let’s get to it:

This weekend, Jews around the world will celebrate the holiday of Passover, the name of which comes from the story of God “passing over” the homes of our distant ancestors on his way to slaughter the first born sons of evil Egyptians. Our forefathers, the story goes, marked their doorposts with lamb’s blood in order to spare their own sons the awful fate of their enemies.

In this time of war and violence, of oppression and suffering, I propose we pass over something else:

God.

Two aspects of the Passover story have troubled me since I was first taught them long ago in an Orthodox yeshiva in Monsey, N.Y. I was 8 years old, and as the holiday approached, our rabbi commanded us to open our chumashim, or Old Testaments, to the Book of Exodus. To get us in the holiday spirit, he told us gruesome tales of torture and persecution.

“The Egyptians,” he told us, “used the corpses of Jewish slaves in their buildings.”

“You mean they used slaves to build their buildings,” I asked, “and the slaves died from work?”

“No,” said the rabbi. “They put the Jewish bodies into the walls and used them as bricks.”

My father was something of a handyman at the time, and this seemed to me a serious violation of basic building codes, not to mention a surefire way to lose a home sale.

“Is this brick?” the interested couple asks.

“No, no,” says the realtor. “That’s corpse.”

But just as troubling — even more so today in light of the brutal slaughter taking place in Ukraine — were the plagues themselves.

God, the rabbi said, struck all the Egyptians with his wrath, not just Pharaoh and his soldiers. Egyptians young and old, innocent and guilty, suffered locusts and frogs, hail and darkness, beasts running wild and water becoming blood. Mothers nursing their babies, the rabbi explained, found their breast milk had turned to blood.

“Yay!” my classmates cheered.

But Pharaoh, the story continues, still wouldn’t relinquish his slaves. Technically this was God’s fault as he “hardened Pharaoh’s heart,” but the issue of free will wouldn’t begin troubling me until my teens. And so God, in his mercy, started killing babies.

“Every firstborn son in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on the throne to the firstborn of the servant girl.” Exodus 11:5.

Surely, I wondered, there were some Egyptians who didn’t whip Jews, who didn’t have anything against Jews at all? Surely there were Egyptians horrified by slavery, Egyptians who disagreed with Pharaoh as often as we do with our own leaders?

“Everyone?” I asked the rabbi. “He struck everyone?”

“Everyone,” the rabbi said.

“Yay!” my classmates cheered.

God, it seems, paints with a wide brush. He paints with a roller. In Egypt, said our rabbi, he even killed first-born cattle. He killed cows. If he were mortal, the God of Jews, Christians and Muslims would be dragged to The Hague. And yet we praise him. We emulate him. We implore our children to be like him.

Perhaps now, as missiles rain down and the dead are discovered in mass graves, is a good time to stop emulating this hateful God. Perhaps we can stop extolling his brutality. Perhaps now is a good time to teach our children to pass over God — to be as unlike him as possible.

“And so God killed them all,” the rabbis and priests and imams can preach to their classrooms. “That was wrong, children.”

“God threw Adam out of Eden for eating an apple,” they can caution their students. “That’s called being heavy-handed, children.”

Cursing all women for eternity because of Eve’s choices?

“That’s called collective punishment, children,” they can warn the young. “Don’t do that.”

“Boo!” the children will jeer.

I was raised strictly Orthodox. Old school. Shtetl fabulous. Every year, at the beginning of the Seder, we welcome in the hungry and poor Jews who can’t afford to have a Seder themselves. It’s a wonderfully human gesture. A few short hours of God later, at the end of the Seder, we open the front door and call out to Him, “Pour out thy wrath upon the nations that did not know you!”

And God does. With plagues and floods, with fire and fury, on the young and old, the guilty and innocent.

And we humans, made in his image, do the same. With fixed-wing bombers and cluster bombs, with self-propelled mortars and thermobaric rocket launchers.

“Why did God kill the first-born cattle?” my rabbi said. “Because the Egyptians believed they were gods.”

Killing gods is an idea I can get behind.

This year, at the end of the Seder, let’s indeed throw our doors open — to strangers. To people who aren’t our own. To the terrifying them, to the evil others, those people who seem so different from us, those we think are our enemies or who think us theirs, but who, if they sat down around the table with us, we’d no doubt find despise the pharaohs of this world as much as we do, and who dream of the same damned thing as us all:

Peace.

Episode 521 – What We Could Learn From China

Elon Musk puts Twitter over a barrel.

It look like the United States is a social experiment and we are failing. We can learn something from China.

And calling the people from Disney groomers is really a charged accusation according to the Washington Post.

Let’s talk about it.

 

Freak Out!

Elon Musk is freaking the world out!

  • You remember last week, Elon Musk, owner of Tesla, bought 9.2% becoming the majority owner.
  • Twitter offered Musk a seat on the Board of Directors and Musk initially accepted.
  • But, right before the first board meeting, he declined the offer.
  • People were disappointed.
  • Turns out, he would not have the power for change that he wanted and he would not be able to buy any more stock.

Well, Mush id making a huge move. In a $43 billion move, Musk has decided to buy Twitter right out and make it private.

He sent a letter to the SEC declaring his intentions (which he posted on Twitter, of course) then sent a letter to Twitter. Here’s what he wrote:

Chairman of the Board,

I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy.  

However, since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company.

As a result, I am offering to buy 100% of Twitter for $54.20 per share in cash, a 54% premium over the day before I began investing in Twitter and a 38% premium over the day before my investment was publicly announced. My offer is my best and final offer and if it is not accepted, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder.

Twitter has extraordinary potential.  I will unlock it.

/S/ Elon Musk

So, basically, Twitter has a choice. Accept a very good offer and let Elon Musk own all of Twitter, fire everyone, make it private and open Twitter to everyone or he dumps his stocks and the Twitter stock craps the bed, killing anyone who invested in Twitter.

He basically has Twitter over a barrel.

Elon Musk is an American hero. He’d also create diversity in the social media space. He’d be the first African American owner of a social media company (Mush is South African.

We Are A Social Experiment

So, Hollywood has committed to putting LGBTQ-crap into the movies they want to show in the United States. One of the things that pundits point out is would they do this in countries that do not embrace the LGBTQ-crap?

Well, we have an answer.

According to Variety:

References to a gay relationship in “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore” were edited out of the movie by Warner Bros. for the film’s release in China. Only six seconds of the movie’s 142-minute runtime were removed. Dialogue that was edited out alluded to the romantic past between male characters Dumbledore (Jude Law) and Grindelwald (Mads Mikkelsen). “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling revealed Dumbledore was gay in 2009, but the movies had never explicitly referenced the character’s sexuality until this third “Fantastic Beasts” entry.

First off, I just don’t understand why JK Rowling did this in the first place. The Harry Potter series was made for kids and there was nothing about gay characters in the series until JK Rowley added it. I am a writer so she can do whatever she wants. I would want to.

I also don’t blame Warner Bros. China is a huge market. Now, I would never want my product in China. That’s the sin. But Warner Bros. has a commitment to their shareholders and China is a huge market. I would want all my movies there if I could ignore the unfair trade practices, the manipulations of weak countries for control, the suppression of their people, the overtaking and suppression of Hong Kong, the threats to Taiwan, the concentration camp and the genocide. So if I have to remove six seconds of my movie to please them, I would. I know you’re hearing from the right about how hypocritical and blah, blah, blah.

This is not a moment to piss on Warner Bros. This is a time to learn something. China says Warner Bros. can’t have their movie in China unless they take it out. How about if we do the same thing? I don’t mean the government bans movies, I mean we, as consumers just don’t go to the movies? If enough people just don’t go, the corporations will adapt to make money.

Remember that when your kid wants to buy that pair of Nikes.

Disney Is Grooming Kids

We talked about Disney and their need to spread gender ideology through their films. Of course, they’re getting killed right now. People are dropping their Disney+ subscriptions (PolitiFact says Disney lost 350,000 subscribers in the last two weeks), not going to Disney World and not buying their crap.

The media is going out of their way to protect Disney along two fronts: Disney is right to go against this bill and Conservatives are causing trouble.

In the Washington Post, a writer named Christine Emba wrote an opinion piece called M-I-C-K-E-Y: He’s a Groomer Too! 

Let’s get on with it:

Psst. Have you heard? Mickey Mouse is a groomer.

So wrote American Conservative senior editor Rod Dreher, one of many on the far right who lately have wielded accusations of pedophilia and child sex abuse to slime opponents (real or cartoon) of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, more broadly known as the “don’t say gay” bill.

Way to start the article.

First off, I’m tired of everyone calling a Conservative someone who is on the “far right” like they are Nazis or something. He has a blog called The Conservative American. Rod Dreher is a Conservative. He has written about religion, politics, film, and culture in National Review and National Review OnlineThe Weekly StandardThe Wall Street JournalTouchstoneMen’s Health, the Los Angeles Times, and other publications. He’s hardly extreme.

Also, the reason the bill is “more broadly known as” the don’t say gay bill is because dumbasses like this pushed that name. Here’s something I heard which is true. It can also be called the “don’t say straight bill” because no one can teach K-3 sex.

This was part of an extended salvo: “About the term ‘groomers,’” Dreher later clarified, “it’s usually used to describe pedophiles who are preparing innocent kids for sexual exploitation. I think it is coming to have a somewhat broader meaning: an adult who wants to separate children from a normative sexual and gender identity, to inspire confusion in them, and to turn them against their parents and all the normative traditions and institutions in society.”

Um, that’s what it does.

Ostensibly, then, this reckless deployment of a highly charged accusation is meant to keep kids safe from sexual confusion and harm. But the “groomer” discourse isn’t really about safety. It’s about control. And it could end up doing much more harm than good.

The “groomer” talking point has been taken up by political spokespeopleFox News hosts and conservative celebrities, who have used the term to describe anyone from educators who let it slip that they have a same-sex partner to the Mouse himself. (Disney is under fire in conservative circles for having opposed Florida’s bill.) The suggestion is that by introducing — or simply being willing to introduce — children to questions of sexual orientation or gender identity, educators risk making young people more vulnerable to sexual predation or abuse. Indiscriminately labeling teachers “pedophiles” will help keep kids safe!

First off, 60% of Democrats think it’s weird to talk about sex and sexual identity with a five-year-old. I’m thinking it’s not only Conservatives that question the grooming of children. I also want to point out there is more sexual abuse of children in public schools than there was in the Catholic church. We don’t know who’s grooming for sex and who isn’t.

I also don’t want to hear anything from a Leftist about charging words and terms. The Left has been doing this forever. They changed the definition of racism. They loosely throw the term “phobia” around. They make up words. What’s ironic is she says Conservatives use the term “groomer” outside the standard definition (by the way, I don’t believe that. Groomer here is appropriate. More on that later) but, in the same article, she uses the super charged “don’t say gay bill”. And why? To control the narrative.

Of course, if conservatives really wanted to keep children safe from sexual predation, there is much they could do besides smear Mickey Mouse for occasionally sporting a pair of rainbow ears.

No, no, no. They are making films that normalize the trans and gay issues. They said they were doing that and they said they need to do it more. They admit they are sneaking it in. They’re doing a little more than wearing rainbow ears.

They might have spent more time closing the loopholes in Tennessee’s Republican-proposed “common-law marriage” bill that would have legalized child marriage (an amendment to address this oversight was added to the bill only this week, after progressive outcry). They might turn a more watchful eye toward members of their own party — Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, for instance, is actually under investigation to determine whether he had sex with a minor and engaged in sex trafficking. (Gaetz has emphatically denied the allegations.) They could have vocally supported legislation like the Emergency Funding for Child Protection Act, which was meant to support programs to prevent child abuse and neglect during the covid-19 pandemic. (That bill was eventually folded into the American Rescue Plan, which didn’t receive a single Republican vote.)

Some things:

  • This is projection.
  • The Tennessee bill was an oversight. It was fixed then passed.
  • Matt Gaetz investigation started over a year ago. Notice, no one is talking about it anymore? That’s because the FBI isn’t investigating Gaetz. They are investigating the guy who accused Gaetz for blackmail.
  • I won’t even start with the American Rescue plan. The reason it costs $100 for two packs of bubble gum and a Coke is because of the American Rescue plan.

None of that is happening. Which indicates that this frenzy about “groomers” and pedophiles is not about children’s well-being. Rather, it’s being used to manipulate a narrative and to discipline companies, individuals and even kids themselves.

The “Mickey is a groomer” attack stems from the idea that the best way to punish Disney for not getting in line with the Florida law is to accuse the corporation of pedophilia. And the tossing around of highly charged phrases is meant to silence teachers and educators in a way that legislation never could, by equating certain teaching material with pornography and the teachers themselves (especially those openly LGBTQ) with sexual predation.

Some things:

  • To say that teachers and Disney should be talking about sex without parental permission is not in the best interest of the child.
  • I will go a step further, if these people feel the need to talk about sex with a 5-year-old, they are groomers, even if they don’t want to have sex with the child. They are prepping the child to think sex is natural at 5-years-old, leaving them open to a pedophile. That’s grooming.
  • I have read some of the material they were keeping in public school libraries. Oral sex, masturbation, sex toys and gay sex has been found in those books. With pictures.
  • kind of sounds like pornography.

As conservative pundit Jesse Kelly put it in a Twitter thread that was later deleted: “Call them groomers and pedophiles if they oppose it. Put THEM on the defensive. Make THEM afraid.” He continued: “You have the high ground. Use it to destroy your enemy.”

It’s a cynical exploitation of loaded language to make bad-faith attacks. It’s also a way for parents to control what their children hear, by making anything that they oppose — same-sex marriage, say, or gender fluidity — seem beyond the pale.

Is she kidding?

The Left uses loaded language on an hourly basis. She did it a couple of times in this article. I think I talked about this before.

Although I don’t agree with the tactic, I do have some sympathy for the motive. It’s understandable that parents want to be the ones who teach their children what to believe. It’s worth asking just how early children need to be exposed to certain information about sex, or whether certain gender ideologies need to be discussed in a kindergarten classroom. Yet taken to the extreme — and the equating of early sex education with “grooming” is certainly extreme — these valid questions disappear in a haze of QAnon-inflected invective.

She doesn’t have sympathy for the motive of parents. How do I know? She’s equating parents who like the Parental Rights in Education with QAnon members. She might as well call them Nazis.

I have to be honest with you, I don’t even know what QAnon is and I’m as Conservative as it gets.

By the way, is that “charged language?

Plus, parents aren’t always right. And being involved in curriculum formation and teaching, while a worthy goal, does not mean controlling it from the top down. Sooner or later, all children become their own people — or at least they should. And over-sheltering can leave kids more open to harm.

Parents may not be right. But they do have more of an interest in their kids than the teachers do, or the government for that matter. And I think if we’ve learned anything over the last year, or in our lifetimes, the government has also been wrong a lot of the time. The difference between a parent being wrong and the government being wrong is a parent will try to fix things. The government just doubles down.

This new vocabulary game might end up backfiring. The conservative movement’s insistence on brandishing hyperbolic language will make their complaints sound less credible, not more. And if everything is “grooming,” soon nothing will be — which means parents may find it harder to call out real instances of abuse and predation when they do occur.

In that scenario, Mickey won’t be the one who has lost.

At least she didn’t say that teacher’s aren’t teaching this stuff.

Episode 520 – When Are We Going to Discuss This?

Let’s talk about the mass shooting in New York.

The Soviet Socialist Republic of Santa Monica is losing their mail service because of their stupid policies.

And is there a line between you being fat or others being fatphobic.

 

A Mass Shooting in a Brooklyn Subway

 

What Happened?

Here’s what happened:

  • On a subway in Brooklyn, New York, a man put on a gas mask and pulled out two smoke cannisters and ignites them.
  • He says, “Oops, my bad,” and drops an axe on the floor.
  • He then pulls out a 9 mm Glock with three extended magazines.
  • He starts firing.
  • 10 people were shot and 19 others were injured.
  • The gun jammed and the gunman ran out of the train.
  • The gunman runs out of the train station and jumps into his white U-Haul van rented from Philadelphia.
  • He drives 10 miles and abandoned the vehicle.
  • The police find the vehicle and identify the “person of interest”, Frank R. James.
  • The police said the man was 5’5″ and a person with dark complexion.

Five of the shooting victims are in critical condition but all those injured are expected to survive. This whole thing could have been far more tragic if the shooter knew how to shoot and he had a gun that worked. Thank God for small miracles.

 

The Assumptions

Of course people of Twitter just assumed the guy who committed this crime. Let’s look at some:

Here’s another:

Here’s a third:

Finally:

 

 

The Suspect

Yesterday, James was considered a “person of interest”. Today, he is a suspect.

A description was release:

  • A male.
  • 5’5″ tall.
  • Dark complexion.
  • Heavy.
  • He is in his 50’s or 60’s.

Mind you, the authorities had a picture of him. Notice something is missing? Yep, his race. The Leftist media decided to kind of keep that little detail out of the conversation, even when James’ picture was released.

Turns out James has a lot of issues that will make the media start ignoring this story immediately.

First, he had mental health issues. In a second, you are going to hear it. This is going to be the narrative of the media. CNN is highlighting this point when he was arrested. They ignored the other part which seems kind of important. Him having a mental illness could be an issue for the Left. Of course, they were all screaming about gun control, but this guy should have never been able to own a gun because he’s crazy. He bought the gun in 2011 from a pawn shop.

And what is the second part? Listen to a couple of his social media videos and you tell me (caution, there is strong language):

That not enough? Here’s another:

How about one more:

This is the definition of racism, segregation and black supremacy.

This is something that needs to be talked about. This isn’t the first time this has happened. There is a lot of black supremacy out there and it is becoming more violent.

  • The Waukesha massacre.
  • The attempted assignation of a mayoral candidate in Minnesota.
  • The Black Hebrew Israelites attack.

But the media doesn’t want to talk about it. White supremacy isn’t a thing anymore. It was, in the past, but it has been condemned. But with this demonization of white people and the ignoring of black supremacists, we really need to talk about it. This stuff is not going to go away and, because the media ignores it, could only get worse and more frequent. It really is time to stop blaming guns on everything and call out why things are the way they are.

That’s What They Get

One of the most liberal cities in Southern California is getting what they deserve.

According to the Daily Wire:

Santa Monica Postmaster Marjorie Watson sent a letter to residents at the 1300 block of 14th Street in Santa Monica after several mail carriers were assaulted by an unknown individual.

The New York Post released a letter from the postmaster explaining the issue:

“This letter is to provide you notice that… delivery service is hereby suspended to all addresses located on the 1300 block of 14th Street, Santa Monica. This is unfortunate, but please be advised that the Postal Service does not enter into decisions to suspend service lightly. Multiple carriers have been subjected to assaults and threats of assault from an individual who has not been located or apprehended. The safety of our employees and of the mail they deliver to you is our highest concern. Until we can ensure the safety of both, delivery services will remain suspended.”

The actions comes from one publicized incident where a mail carrier was attacked by a resident with a broomstick. The carrier was slightly injured but never went to the hospital and didn’t press charges.

The Santa Monica Police Department said they never had any reports of a mail carrier being assaulted. When confronted about that, the postmaster said that he cannot discuss it and just continued on with the suspension of service.

The post office has a lot of reasons not to publicize attacks on mail carriers:

  • Could be political.
  • Could be the post office doesn’t want the bad press.
  • Could be for civil lawsuits (a coverup).
  • There could be union reasons.

But, to go to this extent as not to deliver mail, one has to think there is far more assaults of postal carriers than is being let on.

But, to make a bigger point, this shows you what happens when a city does not take crime seriously.

Another Example of Ignoring Reality

There is an article in the news site The Inquirer called To end fatphobia, we need to dismantle Western civilization, says Philly therapist by fat person and therapist Sonalee Rashatwar. This is something that is not as extreme as the trans thing or the CRT thing but it is being pushed in schools.

I remember making a comment about a heavy person running up a hill and I said she should keep chugging. This triggered something in Josie’s kid and she said, “That’s fatphobic”. Then, we got into a big debate.

The first three paragraphs of the article discuss how she got out of an abusive relationship and started counseling abused women. That’s all great, good for her. Than she goes to the dark side.

As the fat-positivity movement has gained momentum, so, too, have debates around how fat folks should lead healthy lives. Rashatwar, though, considers how sizeism is affected by racism, misogyny, classism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism, and she counsels people against intentional weight loss.

Some things:

  • This is bad writing. The first three paragraphs had nothing to do with fat people and then she just jumps into this.
  • She also talks about “sizeism” as if it were as bad as racism.
  • “Sizeism” isn’t a thing. Obesity is. But she’s already trying to change reality.
  • She’s a crappy therapist if she’s trying to convince people not to lose weight.

Continuing:

She pointed to the work of the artist-activist Ashleigh Shackelford, who has written that wearing clothes from the boys’ section growing up, when many items for girls didn’t fit, altered how Shackelford experienced gender. Rashatwar, who noted that people may perceive feminine bodies as more masculine if they’re fat, feels similarly about her upbringing. Being big and being the eldest child, she said, made her feel less like a girl growing up.

Some things:

  • So we learn here she is big and she’s insecure about it.
  • We also learn that she has identity issues by the fact that she thinks she might be a boy.
  • But the main point here is made: It is not about how I am physically, it’s about how I feel.
  • She also talks about how she has a huge Instagram following where she spouts this crap. This is dangerous.

Continuing:

Rashatwar traces contemporary fatphobia to colonial brutality and how enslaved people were treated. Citing researcher-advocate Caleb Luna, Rashatwar said curing anti-fatness would mean dismantling society’s foundation: “I love to talk about undoing Western civilization because it’s just so romantic to me.”

Does this sound like a woman who’s is concerned with the physical well-being? Or does it sound like some nutty, Leftist, anti-American activist.

 

Trauma

“What some folks think is trauma is like the event itself that happened, like the car accident that I got into is the trauma. But that’s the event. What trauma is, is what gets stuck in my body. And the way that I react when I’m in a car in the future and it stops really quickly. That’s a trauma response.

“And so when we internalize fatphobia and we really, like, personalize a fat, traumatic experience, it can impact our sexuality by making it uncomfortable to receive a hug because we feel like, ‘The person hugging me is probably so repulsed by touching my body. Let’s just get the hug over with quickly.’

“Even though sometimes we’re starved for skin touch. Some of the fat clients that I work with, the only time when people touch their bodies is when they pay for a massage or when they’re paying for Reiki or some other kind of somatic body work. And that can feel devastating when that’s the only time that someone’s affectionately, lovingly, caringly touching your body.”

Some things:

  • Being heavy is not traumatic.
  • Going through experiences that normal people go through (skinny or fat) is not trauma.
  • It may hurt emotionally but it’s not trauma.
  • To me, to consider this trauma, this shows how week-willed and emotionally damaged this woman is.
  • I would say she needs counseling and to lose a few pounds.

 

Self-Worth and Sexual Interactions

“When we teach someone to experience shame based on your body, whether it’s about race, body size, disability, and we internalize that shame, we internalize this sense of our body having less self-worth than other bodies.

“When we internalize a low self-worth and our body having less value, we might be less likely to experience pleasure within a sexual relationship or to ask for the type of touch we want and don’t want within a romantic relationship. Or to be able to even stop a sexual encounter when we want it to stop.”

Some things:

  • Again, the see emotional weakness with this woman.
  • She also projects victimhood as a rape victim (which is sexism) with having a consensual sexual relationship. Does this sound normal?
  • I also want to point out that one way to experience sexual satisfaction is to be physically fit.

 

On Being an Instagram Therapist

“It’s super-overwhelming sometimes because with so many followers on Instagram, it feels like there’s a pressure to produce content all the time. And I feel like I need to be putting out something new and super profound. Like no one’s ever heard of this concept, every day. But I don’t do that because that’s so overwhelming. A lot of folks will reach out into my DMs and ask really personal questions.

“It’s also really gratifying. So when I post really, really political and radical content where I’m talking about like being anti-cop, anti-U.S. government, anti-military folks are like, ‘Whoa, I’ve never heard these ideas before.’ ”

This is why kids shouldn’t be on social media. That’s where this poison is spread.

 

Pushing for Better Health Access

“[An] almost universal collective fat traumatic experience is like going to the doctor, and how BMI and the body mass index scale is used universally to categorize and pathologize bodies based on fatness. One really important macro way that we would have to undo fatphobia would be to finally get rid of BMI, to not use it for insurance purposes. Because people who are of my BMI category and up are denied insurance coverage, are denied lifesaving procedures and medication, are denied gender affirmation surgery, are denied all kinds of things that we deserve access to — fertility treatments and IVF.

“That’s one really big macro way that I could think of. Because BMI has already been debunked.

Some things:

  • Obesity is a major cause of health issues including:
    • Heart disease.
    • Diabetes.
    • High blood pressure.
    • Stroke.
    • Gallbladder disease.
    • Joint problems such as osteoarthritis and musculoskeletal discomfort.
    • Breathing problems, such as asthma and sleep apnea.
    • Heck, it was considered a comorbidity for the China virus.
    • All this is from the CDC
  • Doctors are being made villains here for calling out obesity. Pointing out health problems is their job.
  • BMI is also still valid. It has not been debunked.
    • The CDC, the Mayo Clinic and other institutions still use it.
    • The link this article uses is not from WebMD.com. It was from a far Leftist site called fivethirtyeight.com.

 

The Fat Word

“I always respect the language that people want to use. Even when I’m working with a client, I’ll ask. I’ll say, ‘I’m comfortable with using the word fat, but if there’s another word that you’d like to use, I’d be more than happy to use that.’ And so sometimes, I have clients willing to use a word like fluffy, or curvy, or even plus-size. And that’s fine. I’m happy to use different language, but I will challenge and I will ask, What is it? Where are, like, the genetic memories attached to the charge of this word? Because the word itself doesn’t have to be emotionally charged. But there’s stuff there that we should explore together.”

I actually agree with her here. When I refer to myself, I say I’m fat. I would never use that word when I refer to someone else even when he’s not around. Not because of fatphobia but because it’s rude. I will usually refer to someone as “heavy” or “big”.

 

What I Think

This is another example of the Left ignoring science and reality their inner harmony. Or, as I like to say, their narcissism.

I’ll go a step further. This woman doesn’t like obese people. If she did, she’d want them to get healthier. She doesn’t. She wants them to continue living and unhealthy lifestyle, encouraging the obese not to lose weight, and die early.
