Finding things to be happy about in this election is rare. One of the few sunny spots is watching left-wingers become completely unhinged, especially as Hillary’s poll-numbers start to tank. (The Hillary campaign is looking like the cockpit in an episode of ‘Mayday’ about the time the automated cockpit voice is yelling “Pull up! Pull up!”) The left is trying to rescue Hillary by throwing one faux outrage after another against the wall in hopes of finding something that sticks.
Today, there was something about Trump’s adult offspring that was supposed to be bad, but all I saw of it was a crawl on CNN “Trump’s kids have turbulent night” or something. But, then they moved to trying to reignite the birther outrage, but that kind of totally backfired on them. (The media are suckers for the birther thing, and Trump played them like a golden fiddle, perhaps procured in Georgia during a contest with some guy with horns and a cape.)
So, later on they decided to try and gin up faux outrage by claiming… I am not making this up… that Trump called for Hillary’s assassination. What he said was that since Hillary is such a fan of Australian-style gun control, maybe she should disarm her Secret Service detail. Now, even a leftist Democrat operatives knows that he was just using hyperbole to make a point, but that didn’t stop them from pretending that this was a call for an assassination and demanding that the Secret Service lock Trump away.
The left knows that their voters are highly emotional, poorly informed, and can be manipulated if they can just find the right stimuli; like in 2012 when they convinced highly emotional, poorly informed feminist voters that Mitt Romney was going to outlaw tampons. Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” remark was part of this strategy. It was a message to highly emotional, poorly informed voters that might not like her very much that people that they hate (“Racists! And Sexists! And Xenophobes! Oh, My!”) would be happy if Trump won. And what she was saying was, “Isn’t making people you don’t like unhappy more important than my history of corruption and pathological inability to tell the truth?”
They’re going to keep flinging stuff until they find something that works.
In the meantime, they are just going totally bat-guano looney-tunes.
Obnoxious, left-winger Socialist Juicebox Wanker (with the most annoying voice this side of Fran Drescher) go off on a Lyft driver because she was offended (on behalf of all the inhabitants of the ‘Continent of Hawaii’) because he had a hulu dancer doll in his car.
Just another woman of the left doing her part to increase the ranks of gay men.
You want to know why we hate leftists? This is why we hate leftists. (Language Warning)
A panel of left-wingers defend defend fascism and anti-Christian bigotry and sneeringly dismiss freedom as “cute.”
As one of the comments notes, when one of the leftists on the panel sneers, “Why do you believe that freedom is always the answer, Ben,” it speaks volumes about where the Democrat, Progressive Left is today. They don’t see freedom as a solution, or even a desirable thing, but a problem that must be solved. People given freedom may use it in a politically incorrect way. Therefore, the left believes that to prevent people from misusing their freedom, it must be taken away, or at least, restricted.

Dear misogynist trolls I’m going to make things easier for you – save u some time. All men are rapists and should be put in prison then shot – Julie Bindel, uber-feminist
I am sure she will say she was “just joking;” and I am sure that any white man who (hypothetically) wrote “I’m going to make things easier for you – save u some time. All blacks are rapists and should be put in prison then shot” would also be given a pass had he said “It’s just a joke.”
Julie Bindel is the exemplar of feminism’s transformation from a movement of women seeking equal access to social and professional opportunities in society — into a deranged Cult of Man-Hatred. As a contributor to Britain’s ‘The Guardian,’ she writes often of her desire to punish, subjugate, and ultimately eliminate the human male.
It’s been said that 90% of Feminism is ugly women raging at God for not making them pretty. If Bindel hates men so much, it must kill her to see that face in the mirror every morning.
Since the MFM are giving Donald Trump grief for his assertion that Barack Obama founded ISIS, I thought it might be a fun exercise to go through a few things Democrats have posited over the years:
The NYTimes officially comes out against the invention of fire. I am not making this up.
Negative cultural consequences came with fire, too — and continue to leave an imprint. Anthropologists have speculated that inhaling smoke led to the discovery of smoking. Humans have long used fire to modify their environment and burn carbon, practices that now have us in the throes of climate change. Fire is even tied to the rise of patriarchy — by allowing men to go out hunting while women stayed behind to cook by the fire, it spawned gender norms that still exist today.
Here’s what he said.
I am not proud to be an American. In this moment, being proud of my country is to ignore the atrocities committed against people of color, people living in poverty, people who identify as women, and against my own queer community on a daily basis.
Actually, pumpkin, the only people committing “atrocities” against your “queer community” on a daily basis are Islamic Fascists like ISIS and Obama’s friends the Mullahs and Palestinians.
Dan Savage must be so proud.
A Virginia man who works as an Uber driver tweeted threats to shoot at least two U.S. senators, according to testimony at a hearing Monday in a Virginia court.
Kyler Schmitz has been ordered held in jail.
In at least one of the tweets, sent in the days immediately after the Orlando nightclub shooting, Schmitz allegedly threatened to shoot Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.). The message was directed at Blunt’s official Twitter handle.
In other Twitter posts, Schmitz is accused of threatening groups of members of Congress by writing, “I can’t wait to shoot you in the face one by one.”

House Democrats are demanding a vote on gun control using exactly the same tactics brat children use to demand their parents buy then toys at WalMart.
Donald Trump isn’t the only politician who’s a National Embarrassment this election year.

All of the cool kids want in on the trendy “rape culture” fad.
On Monday, student demonstrators denounced what they called a “toxic rape culture” at the St. Paul campus, where 97 percent of the undergraduates are women.
About two dozen protesters marched on the main gate with signs saying “Rape culture is here” and “We will not be silenced.”
Long story short: The son of the couple that owns one of the vendors that services the University went to prison for rape. The Feministas are mad because the University didn’t revoke the contract and burn down the home of the parents of the rapist. Because punishing the owners and employees of a company with a connection to a rapist is what should be done, I guess.
The University Asylum of Missouri covers itself in glory, yet again.
A vigil Monday planned by several University of Missouri student organizations was supposed to honor victims of Sunday morning’s deadly shooting rampage in a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla. It turned into a blame session against Mizzou’s LGBTQ community for not being intersectional enough. Latino activists, including a Mizzou official, scolded the mostly white gathering for ignoring racial issues.

Apparently, the sight of a lobster for sale in a grocery-store tank “weighed on [her] psyche.” So she bought it, “drove six hours to Winnipeg, [and] shipped it via UPS to a vegan contact out in Halifax for $225, where the lobster was released into the ocean by a fellow vegan out east.”
This story might remind some readers of the first act of a 1998 episode of The Simpsons, but no, it happened in real life just a while ago, and if you dare, you can listen to this chick compare what she did to the Underground Railroad.
This century has turned out to be a lot more stupid than any of us expected.
David French wonders if the left’s transgender zeal is victimizing the mentally ill.
I ran across this heartbreaking interview of a University of Michigan-Flint social work professor whose 19 year-old daughter is “transitioning.” She’s autistic, and she’s been influenced by everything from pop culture to support group meetings to believe that she’s really a man. The story is tragic:
She started attending a local PFLAG meeting, where she met many trans people, including a number of FtoM trans teenagers who were raving about a certain “gender therapist.” Although the APA recommends a minimum of one year of “gender counseling” before surgery, this gender therapist (whom I consented to, before really understanding what I was doing) gave my daughter the go-ahead to have a bilateral mastectomy after only two sessions. This gender specialist never reviewed any of the Special Ed records or spoke to my daughter’s previous therapist, who had known her for a decade. And, crucially, she never asked my daughter, “Might you be a lesbian?”
It gets worse. As you might expect, her daughter wasn’t mentally equipped to understand the true consequences of her decision:
To give you some sense of my daughter’s level of understanding of what it means to transition, she told me recently that she believes that the testosterone “will grow her a penis.” I had to break the news to her that, although this is the mythology in the PFLAG meetings (where a number of the other young trans people are also autistic), this is not the case.
She has been taken advantage of. Healthy organs were amputated. This is insurance fraud, poor clinical practice, a violation of APA standards, unethical and unjust. It is a crime not just against women, but particularly against disabled women. So many of these young women who are “transitioning” are also autistic.
Despite stories like this, many states and professional associations are doing their dead-level best to render it not just unethical but also illegal to counsel teens away from such life-altering mutilations.
It is impossible to have an honest debate about the link between mental illness and transgenderism because to even suggest that a person who feels trapped in the wrong sex body would benefit from psychotherapy will result in accusations of bigotry and “transphobia.”
Obviously, the only “compassionate” thing to do to such people are to chemically and surgically mutilate them.
You may recall some months ago when the Feminist Left threw a collective hissy-fit-tantrum-storm-PMS-overcharge because a scientist who had just landed a space probe on a comet shamelessly wore a shirt with a pattern of attractive women on it. Suddenly, a bunch of women who lack the technical competence to parallel park were attacking a guy who just landed a freakin’ space probe on a freakin’ comet over a fashion choice they disagreed with.
To the feminist and the Progressive Left Media Complex, his shirt was an outrageous attack on women and would somehow discourage young girls from ever pursuing a career in the sciences; because someday a penis-bearer might wear such a shirt to the lab at which point the strong capable feminist scientist would be triggered and reduced to a sobbing wreck.
Anyway, fast forward to now, and a guy who wondered “What would happen if I wore such a shirt in an environment populated by normal people?”
I wore the shirt to the family-friendly Food & Wine Festival at Busch Gardens, a Tampa-area theme park. I was hoping to get a rise out of people, to see offended scowls, muttering tones of disapproval, or even outright confrontation. I saw none of this. There wasn’t a single scowl, muttered remark, or disapproving glance. The shirt did, however, receive a number of compliments, an enthusiastic vote of approval from a few tattooed bikers, and joy from one of the park workers who actually recognized Elly Prizeman’s work for what it was and was thrilled to see the shirt that launched the shirtstorm in person.
The lesson from this little social experiment is that radical feminism, while it controls media, college campuses, and has a strong voice in government, has little impact on the sensibilities of the common man.
The other lesson is that radical feminists are nucking futs.
The National Park Service is concerned that trees are racist symbols.
I am not making this up.
The origin of the bizarre racist lynching theory of national parks appears to be Carolyn Finney. Finney was an actress noted for, apparently, little more than an appearance in The Nutt House. Then she became a cause célèbre for race activists when she was denied tenure by Berkeley’s Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management because her work didn’t meet academic standards.
Her supporters blamed racism, rather than her academic shortcomings, and protested vocally.
These days she’s a diversity advisor to the U.S. National Parks Advisory Board. What wasn’t good enough for UC Berkeley is good enough for national parks. She is also the author of Black Faces, White Spaces. In it she claims that “oppression and violence against black people in forests and other green spaces can translate into contemporary understandings that constrain African-American environmental understandings.”
Finney cites the work of Joy DeGruy Leary who invented a Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome that she claims black people suffer from. Affected by PTSS, black people experience “fear and mistrust of forests and other green spaces.” According to Finney, the tree is a racist symbol to black people.
“Black people also wanted to go out in the woods and eat apples from the trees,” Finney explains.” But black people were lynched on the trees. The tree became a big symbol.” Black people are triggered by trees and suffer Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome flashbacks. You can’t expect them to go to on a hike.
This is the intellectual caliber of the current ruling class; and this is how abolishing single-sex bathrooms has become the civil rights struggle of a very stupid age.
Speaking of which, the whole idea of Men and Ladies Rooms is also white male patriarchal privilege.
So, the Left contends that race and gender are just social constructs created by an oppressive society to coerce everyone to conform to roles. And so the left… creates an oppressive society designed to coerce everyone into conforming to their predetermined roles.
Crazy Australian Woman Artist stages and films her own rape, in order to smash the Patriarchy or something.
An Australian artist who filmed herself having sex with a stranger in a ‘mock rape’ says she wants the video artwork to challenge how society views sexual assault.
Sophia Hewson shot the project – titled ‘are you ok bob?’ – in her New York home, and is unveiling it in a Melbourne gallery this week.
The 31-year-old artist described her latest work as a ‘militant feminist’ piece, and said she hopes it helps ‘dismantle male power’.
Let me see if I figure out how this works.
- Film fake rape
- Patriarchy is dismantled.
Apparently, this woman has won some awards and grants for her artistic achievements. Which leads me to believe a person of the appropriate sex/gender/racial identification could win a grant by submitting an application consisting of nothing but the word “Patriarchy” repeated five os six hundred time.
Her piece reminds me of some of Democrat-Socialist Bernie Sanders’s failed attempt to write erotic fiction.
A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.
The gay pastor who claimed someone at Whole Foods put the word ‘Fag’ on his cake has issued an apology (without actually admitting “It was me. I did it to get attention and money. I thought it would work because social leftists are gullible patsies with overwhelming vulnerability to bias confirmation.”)
Today I am dismissing my lawsuit against Whole Foods Market. The company did nothing wrong. I was wrong to pursue this matter and use the media to perpetuate this story. I want to apologize to Whole Foods and its team members for questioning the company’s commitment to its values, and especially the bakery associate who I understand was put in a terrible position because of my actions. I apologize to the LGBT community for diverting attention from real issues. I also want to apologize to my partner, my family, my church family, and my attorney.
I am left wondering if there was anyone who ever believed this was legit.
