“And Those Who Eat Tide Pods Shall Lead…”

Just like in the movie ‘Heathers,’ the kids from Parkland High School figured out pretty quickly that parroting the media’s Gun Control Narrative will get them on TV. Just to demonstrate how silly it’s gotten, deranged law professor Lawrence Tribe wants to lower the voting age to 16 so Generation Tide Pod can share its wisdom with us.

Teens between 14 and 18 have far better BS detectors, on average, than “adults” 18 and older. Wouldn’t it be great if the voting age were lowered to 16? Just a pipe dream, I know, but . . . #Children’sCrusade?

No, professor, teenagers do not possess finely tuned BS detectors. Their lack of life experience and desire for validation make them much easier to manipulate than adults. Have you seen the 21st Century hipster mullet high school kids are wearing? Nobody with common sense and a rational worldview gets a haircut like that.

And this is an interesting, aside. Did you know the Parkland Head Case was not referred by school officials to law enforcement — even for offenses like assault and possession of bullets on school property — because of the school’s race-progressive policy of not reporting black and Hispanic offenders? [This sort “educational equity” policy was encouraged under the Obama administration to “combat racial disparities in discipline.”]

By the way, at least one Florida teacher says that the problem isn’t gun, but general societal dysfunction and moral breakdown. No, she will not be offered a speaking slot at the next CNN “town hall.” Also, a grown-up survivor of the Columbine mass-murder has introduced a bill in Colorado to permit concealed carry in schools. This goes against the media’s preferred narrative, so she will not be getting a speaking gig on CNN.

ABC News took the time to further the Gun Control Narrative by highlighting a video by a gun owner who destroyed the AR-15 he has owned for 30 years so that “it can never be used to kill anyone.” Hey, wait a minute. You mean this guy kept an AR-15 for thirty years and it never once went on a murder rampage? It must be broken or something.

Somebody else who is benefiting from the Democrat Media Complex’s prerogative to reward its ideological fellows is Olympic skater Adam Rippon, who was offered a gig with NBC. Not because of his brilliant tenth place-worthy skating or brilliant insights, but because he attacked a Republican Vice President.

And on that note, Olympic ratings are way down this year. Team USA isn’t bringing home very many medals, even if you count Adam Rippon’s Pence-derangement participation trophy. It’s not all because there was a conscious decision made to showcase politics instead of sport, but also because of the way events are presented. TV producers assume male interest in sport is built-in, so they design their telecasts to draw in women; which means there is a disproportionate focus on female athletes, coupled with “compelling backstories” of these athletes; mini-Lifetime movies inserted in between competitions, because they assume the “non-traditional viewer” is more interested in how an athlete tragically lost her mother at the age of 11 than how well she does in curling.

If I want to watch Korean drama, I’ll tune into Descendants of the Sun. (Which I have because it’s amazing. The character of Captain Yoo Sin Jin radiates a self-secure masculinity that is utterly lacking in American TV protagonists. He jokes but he doesn’t laugh, he gives the people around him sh-t but he will lay his life on the line for any of them. Love that guy.)



  1. The Democrats are targeting the non-thinking middle of the road independent vote with children who have been duly prompted to parrot their liberal Puppet Master parents and the Democrat Party Central propaganda machine. Expect some kind of token concession by the GOP.

    The NEA opposes any kind of gun toting security or off-duty police in the schools. Negating any type of protection in these still gun free zones.

  2. Too bad Adam Rippon turned down NBC’s offer; I was looking forward to his on-air cat fight with Johnny Weir.
    Rippon is the new Chelsea Manning; endless need for attention.

  3. Someone else wrote it in a comment in another thread, the other day, and I found it right on —

    The Domcrats have been killing people en masse for decades in this country, figuratively, literally, and better yet — legally.

    Hmmm… a version of ‘The View’ with Johnny Weir, Chelsea Manning, Adam Rippon, and Caitlyn Jenner. Certainly, there are possibilities here.

  5. Make-up is easier to take off than tattoos. And make-up won’t keep you out of a Jewish cemetery. But tenth place? Even Tonya Harding could do better than that.

    Meanwhile, the gay skater who actually took home the gold was Canadian. Maybe the fact that he spent more time actually focusing on skating had something to do with it.

    In terms of its treatment of gays, ABC has always been superior to NBC. And that goes for both fiction and non-fiction.

    And Democrats still support ex-gay therapy, except instead of abusing the name of Jesus to do it, they abuse the name of science.

  6. Lawrence Tribe may know the law, but he obviously knows nothing of world history when he writes glowingly of the “Children’s Crusade”. In reality, the original Children’s Crusade (in the 13th century) was a total disaster and turned out to be a gigantic human-trafficking scam. Most of the children ended up on slave ships headed to Egypt. Check your facts, “Prof.” Tribe!

    You mean like the gullible conservative “adults” who fell for the Russian propaganda? When you think about it anyone who hyperactivity shared that pizzagate ridiculousness as truth should be barred from voting.

  9. This has been in my head all-morning…*

    Do you hear the people sing?
    Singing the song of angry men?
    It is the music of the people
    Who will not be slaves again!
    When the beating of your heart
    Echoes the beating of the drums
    There is a life about to start
    When tomorrow comes!

    Will you give all you can give
    So that our banner may advance?
    Some will fall and some will live
    Will you stand up and take your chance?
    The blood of the martyrs
    Will water the meadows of France!

    This will not end well, someone will get hurt. Always does…

  10. From 2004 to 2013, there were 1,344 people killed in school-transportation-related crashes—an average of 134 fatalities per year.

    Let’s ban school busses. Think of the children…

  12. If I had my way-the drinking age would be lowered to 18 and the voting age raised to 21 or even 25.

  13. mike – zzzzzz.

    It’s funny to see the Red Scare back. When the Soviets were actually infiltrating the government and institutions, the left told everyone else it was paranoia (in between trips to Russia to praise the current despot) or honeymooning in Cuba because Castro was such a sweetheart.

    Now it’s the left that’s all hot and bothered about our precious bodily fluids.

    If you want to talk meddling, look at what the Mexican government does. Or look at the US of A. Geez, Obama meddled in Israeli elections not to mention bombing the snot out of all sorts of places and further destabilizing the Middle East kicking off the refugee crisis and ISIS. I guess Obama thought that W’s mess wasn’t bad enough so he’d show the Texas Village Idiot how it’s done.

    Remember when it emerged we were listening to Angela Merkel’s phone calls? And I can guarantee that Merkel wasn’t the only leader of an ally that was speaking to the NSA without knowing it.

    And, yes, I am peeved that Trump has yet to pull the US out of A-stan. And why is Syria our problem?

    Crooked Hillary lost because she was an awful candidate, ran an awful campaign, and she’s an awful person.

    BTW: how is it that Macedonian content farmers and $100K in Facebook ads (most of which ran after the election) enough to steer the US election but Bill and Hill’s enrichment by Russian oligarchs of no import?

  14. @13

    Obama gave his green light (pun intended) to the drops of 26,000+ bombs … in his last POTUS year 2016 alone (*)

    And, as you said — all over the freaking place.

    And they keep brandishing the G. Bush patronym as if the dummy’s was that of Hitler’s at the power of two.

    (Of course, DJT’s is already Hitler’s at the power of 10)

    Tell me about a clueless pile of sore losers posing as paragons of virtue.

    (*) as the math goes, that’s one bombing every 20 minutes, 24/7, for the entire year; thus, not even counting the humanitarian feats of his new drone-toys, 2009-2015, until some in the public (and/or army generals) suggested him to calm down, just before his new venture into the on-land, old skool Ukraine fiasco.

  15. @9

    The first virtue signalling, blood thirsty hate chant of the modern age — by the very ancestors of Pol Pot’s teachers who’d come 150 years later of course.

    FYI also, in French it sounds even more appalling to, what? 2 to 3% of our (adults) population (probably half of which had ancestors murdered in the Vendee)

    For over 25+ years now, it is beyond me my country anthem had to be THAT infamy of human brain production.

    It’d be like yours would have been chosen by Lincoln in 1861 — and had remained to this day — to be a random KKK chant.

    There was as much “enlightenment” in the French revolution as there is law of supply demand awareness in the whole bill trail of the Californian legislature since the 1950s.

  16. As I watched the video of the guy destroying his gun so it could never take a life, I couldn’t help thinking how much he might regret that if his life or his family’s are in immanent danger someday.

    Stahp! Don’t give anyone ideas, lest it becomes Bravo’s latest offering complete with Anderson Cooper’s BFF Andy Cohen as moderator.

    No kidding. In one of the latest developments, it turns out that wannabe future journalist David Hogg (presumably to be more in the vein of Matt Taibbi than Ernie Pyle) declined an opportunity to be one of the students invited to The White House to whine about evil guns—because of a previously scheduled TV appearance. This should (but probably won’t) tell anyone all they need to know about this latest ‘grassroots’ movement.

  19. Somehow, these detergent-eating kids, who can’t figure out which restroom to use, and who are grief-stricken and suffering from PTSD, are able to organize and carry out a major political movement less than a week after the tragedy.

    Makes me wonder about the soros…er, source of organization and funding.

  21. Smarmy South African export Trevor Noah even noted the contrast between suddenly-woke-on-gun-violence teens who were eating Tide Pods just a couple weeks ago. When even your sympathizers are noting a disconnect, perhaps it’s time to dial it back a bit.

    Also: the guy who ‘destroyed’ his “assault rifle” by sawing it in half made it an illegal weapon, as a few online have noted.
