In Vancouver, the gay leftists are clashing with the black leftists.
Arguing that the police “is an instrument of state violence and oppression” the Vancouver chapter of Black Lives Matter launched a campaign earlier this summer asking for the withdrawal of “any and all presence of uniformed police officers” from the annual celebration of LGBTQ communities.
But for the activists behind “Our Pride Includes Our Police,” this misrepresents the history of the relationship between local LGBTQ communities and police.
“Banning the police from the pride parade will undermine our commitment to diversity and inclusion and all the work we’ve done.”
Yeah, whatever. Gay Pride parades are stupid anachronisms anyway. Still, the contest of urination over who has been more oppressed is a neverending source of amusement.
It is quite remarkable that the Progressive Democrat Left is advocating not just a John-Birch-Society reignition of the Cold War with Russia, but also a military coup against the duly elected President of the United States.
It’s less surprising — but only a little — that left-wingers are comparing National Guard soldiers to the Waffen SS.
Transsexuals and Muslims are the Left’s new pets. (It’s kind of cute that they think the left really cares about them, and isn’t just exploiting them for virtue signaling and political gain.) And so the cosmetics companies have decided to hire ladyboys as their new spokespeople. But what do they do when one of their pets goes off-script and makes a politically inappropriate joke?
That’s when the left-wing virtue-signalers they were pandering to turn on them.
Chasing trends, Covergirl chose a boy to model their makeup because transboys are the new “it girls” of 2017—and if you don’t agree you’re transphobic, you hating hater! But the reason Charles was trending wasn’t for his unusual career, overly-contoured nose, or confusing caterpillar eyebrows, but because he had angered the SJW Twitter mobs by tweeting something insensitive about Africa.
“I can’t believe we’re going to Africa today. OMG, what if we get ebola?”
Cue the predictable Twitter outrage. Sorry, Charlie, but it’s not enough to be a pet. You have to be an obedient pet. Or they will put you down.
Also at PJ Media, the feminist “free bleeding” movement has infiltrated the Yoga Cult. The feminists have embraced “free bleeding” (i.e. letting your menses soak your clothing) because being gross and offensive is so much easier than being interesting or intelligent. Defenders claim menstruation should be celebrated because it’s “A NATURAL BODILY FUNCITON” (Histrionic ALLCAPS in original). Yeah, there a lot of bodily functions that are disgusting and I don’t want to watch; probably why I don’t live in San Francisco.
Left-Winger Bill Maher invited Milo Yiannopoulos to participate in his HBO show that, as I understand it, consists mainly of leftists throwing out smug platitudes and talking points while an audience of trained seals claps like idiots.
In protest, one of the other left-wing panelists backed out, and made a big deal of virtue-signaling his reasons for doing so.
“He has ample venues to spew his hateful diatribes,” Scahill wrote. “Appearing on ‘Real Time’ will provide Yiannopoulos with a large, important platform to openly advocate his racist, anti-immigrant campaign.”
I call BS. The real reason alleged journalist Jeremy Scahill backed out is simply because he is afraid to go up against Milo; who is wittier, sharper, more appealing, and his better ideas on his side. Scahill knows he can’t win, so instead he fakes a “brave stand” and claims to be backing down out of principle. (As if leftists have principles.)
The whole attitude of the left on all matters has become “There is no need to debate. We’re right. Shut up.” This is not an attitude born of confidence, but of fear. They know their ideas are bad. They know their ideas can’t withstand honest debate. They know they can’t win. They don’t want the debate. They want an echo chamber.
People who think they can win a debate want to have the debate. People who don’t think they can win a debate want to shut it down before it happens. And if they are really afraid of losing a debate, they smash windows and set things on fire.
In related news, California won’t be sending any teams to the National Debate Tournament because it’s being held in a horrible red flyover state that isn’t as enlightened as Berkeley.
A dude in the Netherlands has contracted HIV despite being on PReP.
During his first seven months in the study he averaged 56 anal sex partners per month and about 30 episodes of condomless sex a month. He averaged 16 days per month when he did have condomless sex and on those days averaged 3.7 partners.
“This PrEP user came to the study saying he had no doubt he would acquire HIV unless he went on PrEP,” said Dr Hoornenborg. “He was highly educated and knew exactly what the risks were but did not feel he was able to change his sexual risk pattern, so took action by applying for the study.”
He did have ‘chemsex’ and took mephedrone, GHB/GBL, ketamine, cocaine and amphetamine, and admitted to injecting ketamine twice but insisted he used sterile needles. He had two episodes of rectal gonorrhoea and one of rectal chlamydia in his first seven months on PreP.
OK, I’ll admit to being a little naive, but 56 partners a month? Is that a typical score in some segments of ‘The Community?’ Not to be a prude, but it seems like a lot to me. It also seems like it wouldn’t leave a lot of time for much else in your life if you’re doing so much… that.
