Question: Does the video exist of an SJW behaving in a calm, rational manner? (H/T: Campus Reform)
A leader of the #BlackLivesMatter hate group is furious that cops are handing out ice cream to children. I am not making this up.
Immutable Law of Life: Miserable people don’t want to become happy; they want everyone else to become as miserable as they are.
We need to abolish the police, period. Demilitarize the police, disarm the police, and we need to come up with community solutions for transformative justice.” — Jessica Disu, community activist
“Sounds good to me” – Every urban thug.
You should really treat yourself to the video so you can see the smug look of simultaneous self-righteousness and clueless vacuity as she makes her proclamation.
What do you suppose she means by “community solutions for transformative justice?”
Nothing. She means nothing by it. She just likes the sound of the words as they dribble out of her pie hole.
You know who else thought they were a “community solution for transformative justice?” The KKK.
Time to face facts. Democracy is terrible and it must be stopped when it allows other people the ability to control their destiny. Hey, that’s our job.
Take Brexit – they totally got it wrong because they simply failed to understand EU membership was so good for us – by which I mean “us,” as in the important people who live in cities and use terms like “farm-to-table” yet have never been on a farm. Our fellow transnational socialist technocrats in Great Britain tried to explain to the normals why unaccountable bureaucrats in a foreign capital should be dictating the smallest details of their lives, from the shape of their bananas to the size of their condoms. They refused to listen. That’s crazy! I mean, why would anyone need anything but an extra small condom anyway?
And their betters tried to show them how their so-called concerns about unrestricted foreign immigration and its consequences on their incomes, the nature of their communities, and their safety were really just a smokescreen for the rabid racism that lurks beneath the surface of anyone who isn’t an urban elitist like us. Did they listen? They turned down the chance for unrestricted immigration from Turkey! I mean, how could that possibly go wrong? It’s not like there is some kind of looming threat out there from organized groups of foreigners with a murderous ideology that has sworn our destruction.
I cannot help but notice that the Brexpocalypse the Left warned us about has not come to pass. The NYSE is fine. The Euro is fine. The Brent index is fine. The FTSE is fine. The pound sterling declined a bit, but that just makes things cheaper.
And here in America, people are voting for that terrible Donald Trump instead of the wonderful Hillary. It’s crazy – just look at her track record of achievement at being female and raising awareness of stuff!
I will not be voting for Trump myself, but I think one of the main delights of a Trump victory would be watching the left go even more hyperbolically insane than they are now. It’s difficult to imagine the left becoming even more insane, but it will be fun to watch.
This is why you only run into nice people at Chik-Fil-A; because leftists don’t eat there.
Since the left hates Chik-Fil-A so much, they are welcome to start their own chain. It could serve only organic, free-range food harvested locally and sustainably. It would be a lot more expensive than Chik-Fil-A, and they could hire surly, resentful counter-workers who would give you a lecture on social justice when you picked up your food.
OMG, I just invented Chipotle.
This is a feminist protesting an appearance of Milo Yiannopoulus at the University of California – Los Angeles. Note: This is one of the people who currently set the norms and standards for how society ought to be operated, and whose whims and prerogatives must be accommodated by institutions and made into law by Governments. These are the people who demand “Affirmative Consent Laws” and for the denial of due process to men accused of rapes – positions fully adopted and embraced by the Democrat Party.
But at least she’s not calling for reducing the Federal budget to affordable levels, that would make her a dangerous radical whackobird.
In last week’s column I wrote about cross-dressing former Olympic US athlete Bruce Jenner. Regrettably, this upset some people.
SBS comedy writer Rebecca Shaw was particularly infuriated. “In the very first sentence [Blair] does everything you are not meant to do if you are a person who cares about the lives of transgender people. Or if you are just a decent person,” she wrote.
“He refers to Caitlyn as Bruce, says that Caitlyn ‘is’ a man, and misgenders her over and over. This is not satire, it is not funny, and it is disgraceful.”
All fair points. I would only offer in my defence that Jenner is technically still male. Then again, he was involved in a fatal car crash just a few weeks after deciding he’s now a woman, which at least demonstrates an impressive commitment to his new gender. Following many decades of competent driving, Jenner can no longer reverse park.
There’s more, but you get the idea.
As Hillary supporters made their way out of the gymnasium, an officer in riot gear pointed and said “that way only.” I stopped in my tracks when I saw where he wanted us to go. The sole exit from the campus was a narrow walkway approximately 40 feet long, lined 2-3 people deep on each side with more than a hundred screaming, cursing, jeering, angry Bernie supporters pushing hateful signs into people’s faces. They stood above the path on a two foot cement border wall, looming over and into the walkway, shouting SHAME ON YOU!
A scan of the signs revealed the same tired slurs rotated out against Hillary for decades. “Liar,” “Wall Street Shill” “Murderer” “Frack You” “Hillary Deports Children” “Clinton Crime Family” “Release the Transcripts.” A large sign written in drippy red paint screamed “Honduras!” and “You killed Berta Cáceres!” Conspiracy theories abounded, each one could easily be refuted with basic research from reliable sources, or a visit to snopes.com.
Entering the gauntlet, two protesters cursed and shouted through megaphones mere feet away, ringing eardrums. One of the megaphone men was dressed in a loincloth, partially exposing himself, his face painted red and wearing a headdress of feathers. A young girl in a pink jacket jabbed her fingers at people as they passed and yelled “Get out of here, get out of here! You’re not from here, none of you!”
Every single Hillary supporter was forced to pass through the tunnel of hate. Some smiled defiantly, flashed peace signs, sang and danced their way through. Some angrily flipped the bird and shouted back, shoving signs out of their faces. Some took pictures, some covered their faces and ran, some sheltered their children and elders. A number of people using wheelchairs or walkers navigated carefully through the bellowing mob. No one was spared. A handmade sign with Hillary’s autograph was ripped from a child’s hands and torn up. Children cried and parents’ faces registered shock, gears turning: “How will I explain this behavior, and why they’re so mad at us?”
The Democrat Party’s chickens have come home to roost.
This photo-essay of anti-Trump protesters demonstrates that his opponents may actually be slightly more obnoxious than his supporters.
I don’t expect my opinion of the man will change, but you have to think that for Hillary, the ultimate humiliation would be losing to Trump.
These are the people whose votes Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are stumping for:
- 20 (or more) Violent Leftists Arrested in Anti-Trump Riots in California. — “One Trump supporter had his face bloodied in a scuffle as he tried to drive out of the area. One man jumped on top of a police car, leaving its front and rear windows smashed and the top dented in and other protesters sprayed graffiti on a police car and the venue’s marquee. Dozens of cars — including those of Trump supporters trying to leave — were stuck in the street as several hundred demonstrators blocked the road, waved Mexican flags and posed for selfies.”
- Violent Leftists Riot in Seattle on May Day – “At least nine protesters were arrested and five police officers injured during May Day clashes in Seattle where flares, bricks and Molotov cocktails were thrown, authorities said. … The anti-capitalist demonstrators carried signs including one saying: ‘We Are Ungovernable.’”
- The Charming Children of Hillary Clinton Supporters Shout Obscenities and Curses at Trump Supporters. — And by children, I don’t mean spoiled college snowflakes, I mean literally kids so young not even Denny Hastert or the Safe School Czar would be into them.
If I understand the progressive bleating apologists correctly, we’re supposed to support these violent thugs because without them, there wouldn’t be gay rights or something.
A Special Snowflake of the “Non-Binary” variety whined to Preezy Obama that it and people like it “literally have no rights.” Jazz Shaw responds.
Wait… you “literally have no rights?” I realize this took place in England and we have no control over that, but the parallel to America is being widely cited in the media and she specifically referenced North Carolina. So at least in our country, exactly what rights are you being denied as a “non-binary” person? Our rights in this country are not gender specific, just as they aren’t race specific or bound to your religion, your height, your weight or anything else. The only ones I can think of where there’s even a question are marriage (which isn’t a “right” but has already been taken care of in the Supreme Court) and bathrooms, which do not fall under the Bill of Rights, but rather common decency.
Is someone beating you up or otherwise harming or threatening to harm you because of your “non-binary” status? That’s already against the law, and it’s equally illegal to beat up all of the boring old “binary” citizens as well. Are you being silenced by the government or barred from attending the church you belong to? Is someone telling you that you can’t own and carry a gun? (Okay, that last one is probably true depending where you live, but trust me… it’s not just you.) So what are these “rights” that you are being denied on the basis of your “non-binary” or “transgender” status or whichever of the rest of the 58 new gender definitions Facebook offers that you picked?
Derek Hunter at Townhall suggests that the reason there is a massive social obsession with whether people who are confused about their sexual identity should be allowed to barge into whatever bathroom they feel like is because having solved all the major problems of society… nobody is going hungry, nobody is really impoverished, nobody has to go without some sort of shelter … all we’re left is fights over triggers and microaggressions. There is some truth in that, but I think the other half is that our real problems… crushing national debt, fiscal unsustainability, economic decline, triumphalist Mohammedanism… are problems whose solutions are difficult and politically incorrect. It’s more advantageous for politicians to gin up phony baloney problems like transgender bathrooms, or the wage gap, or “climate change” that are easier to manipulate.
The Westboro Street Theater Troupe — a group of Performance Artists whose over-the-top parody of left-wing stereotypes of gay-hating Christians has made them a national sensation — is planning a summer tour of performing their act for conventions of motorcycle enthusiasts.
Westboro Baptist Church spokesperson Lisa Greer confirmed that arrangements have been made for Westboro Baptist Church members to attend and protest multiple motorcycle rallies throughout 2016.
“Several motorcycle clubs across the country support the American soldiers and veterans who blindly fought overseas to provide homosexuals with the right to openly and legally commit sins against Jesus Christ – our mission is to educate.”
I’m not kidding; I really think the Westboros are an act. If the Westboros wanted their insane homophobia to be taken seriously, they’d convert to Islam.
The media are lying about the content of North Carolina’s bathroom bill, but that hasn’t stopped washed-up 80′s musicians and politically correction corporations from pitching hissy-fits about it to demonstrate how hip and “tolerant” they are.
Aided by media that are both incompetent and often transparently biased, along with a burgeoning corporate culture that has discovered the economic benefits of public moral preening, we have what Stella Morabito aptly terms the “LGBT mafia:” a profoundly illiberal social movement rather single-mindedly determined to stamp out even minor and inconsequential dissent from its orthodoxy. It’s not going anywhere. In fact, it’s getting worse.
I have a really bad stomach flu, so I am going to make these points quickly. And they’re nothing I haven’t said before.
- A person should not have to surrender his Constitutional Rights (speech, association, religious conscience) just because he opens a business.
- No one suffers any actual physical or economic harm when someone else declines to bake a cake for them, or asks them to use the bathroom that corresponds to their birth certificate.
- The left doesn’t take religious belief seriously (except for Mohammedans, who must never be offended in any way). They think religion is a silly little hobby, and cannot fathom how a person’s behavior could be motivated by heartfelt religious belief. It’s easier to just call it “hate” and use it as an excuse to deny people their Constitutional Rights.
This whole thing has less to do with any sudden love the left has developed for trannies, and more to do with the left discovering that the vulgar use of power to bully people they don’t like feels damned good, and they’re going to keep doing it.
All the talk about bathrooms misses their point.
Every knee must be made to bend.
It’s not about the knee.
It’s not even about the bending.
It’s always about the making.
Dan Savage’s schtick is based on two things: bitter, unhinged hatred of Republicans, Christians, and decent people in general and encouraging people to have promiscuous sleazy sex. Which is why, despite having all the charm of a cold sore, he’s become the leading media spokesperson for the LGBT subculture. His values and those of the media align pretty much perfectly.
In his latest “Savage Love” column in 50 papers, leftist gay activist/sex columnist Dan Savage discussed a recent talk he gave at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their lecture series “Uninhibited: About Sex.” He was celebrating what he called “the sex-positive movement” and the 25th anniversary of what he called “my skeezy sex column.”
“I’m not at all concerned about the potential destruction/implosion of the GOP—those [swear words, because queens who want to look tough use lots of swear words] have it coming—but with the likelihood of political violence. I’m concerned that black and brown people—Latinos, Muslims, African Americans—will be subjected to more political/social/economic violence than they already are. People will die as a direct result of Trump getting the GOP nomination. This is a terrifying moment.”
In reality, people are already dying because of the Obama-Bush loosy-goosey immigration policy. Fourteen were murdered in San Diego by an Islamist who got through the Obama Administration’s screening process apparently using a fake name that no one even bothered to check. Hundreds more die as a result of gang violence, drunk drivers, and violent crime because of the Obama Administration’s refusal to control who gets into this country, and refusal to deport anyone until *after* they commit a violent crime.
Dan Savage is probably okay with illegal immigrants murdering people because some of them might be Republicans.
Trump derangement syndrome has driven National Review’s Kevin Williamson into full-on, spittle-flecking madness. He now takes out his loathing on the white lower class.
It is immoral because it perpetuates a lie: that the white working class that finds itself attracted to Trump has been victimized by outside forces. It hasn’t. … Nobody did this to them. They failed themselves. If you spend time in hardscrabble, white upstate New York, or eastern Kentucky, or my own native West Texas, and you take an honest look at the welfare dependency, the drug and alcohol addiction, the family anarchy — which is to say, the whelping of human children with all the respect and wisdom of a stray dog — you will come to an awful realization. It wasn’t Beijing. It wasn’t even Washington, as bad as Washington can be. It wasn’t immigrants from Mexico, excessive and problematic as our current immigration levels are. It wasn’t any of that. Nothing happened to them.
The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets.
Every socio-economic group in the country has suffered from the progressive left’s assault on the culture, it’s destruction of the traditional family, the obliteration of a moral code, and the horrifically bad system of public education that’s more enthusiastic about teaching ‘social justice’ than math, history, science, or practical skills.
But as for his shaming communities where the manufacturing jobs have been exported to China and Mexico (in the name of ‘Global Competitiveness’) and cheap, foreign labor has been imported on an unprecedented scale to replace Americans at the jobs that remain, he is flat wrong. When people can’t earn an income from a job, the only alternatives are welfare and crime. Welfare and crime are the handmaidens to the drugs and dysfunction he blames on the displaced workers.
I have actually been noticing quite a bit of this sentiment from parts of the right, this, “Hey, it’s people’s own damn fault if they can’t compete with low wage workers in a global marketplace.” James Pethokoukis is similarly dismissive of the impacts of globalism and illegal immigration on American workers.
Sneering at people who are hurting is not going to win the likes of Kevin Williamson any fans. Yes, people who make bad choices (drug use, foregoing education, embracing left-wing social values) are responsible for the outcomes of those choices, regardless of race or socio-economic status. But its disingenuous to deny the role of economic policies of both parties in depriving these people of opportunities for more respectable livelihoods.
And to trash workers who’ve lost their jobs as a way of striking out at Donald Trump borders on reprehensible.
So, Democratic Socialist Hillary Clinton is bragging about how she’s going to put coal miners out of work and “conservative” Kevin Williamson is saying, “Right on! Put those no-good crackers out of work.” Strange times.
“Donald Trump may be the Republican frontrunner. I still think we’re giving him way too much attention in proportion to the other candidates who also had victories to celebrate tonight.”
“And I’m worried. When he institutes internment camps and suspends habeas, we’ll all look back and feel pretty bad.”
I’m not a Trump fan, but this “Trump is Hitler” thing the left (and some Republicans) have going on is just… ridiculous.
SCARBOROUGH: In the media there have been some people that have — taken still pictures to make it look like that — it’s Hitler salutes and in fact, we had one person on earlier today saying, “Well, if you look at the still pictures it looks very troubling.”
Talk about what you’re doing when you’re having people raising their hands, and are you in any — in any way, making an attempt to emulate what Hitler or anybody else did with his salutes?
Seriously, MSDNC? Seriously?
The bizarre Queers for Palestine and their deranged sisters at Code Pink will not be able to make sense of this: A gay Iranian poet is leaving the Islamic Republic of Iran (a country governed entirely by clerics of the Religion of Peace) and is seeking to live in the Zionist Entity (the source of all evil and oppression).
Three months ago Israel granted a temporary visa to Iranian poet Payam Feilli. It was then that Feilli’s personal hell came to an end. After decades of persecution, the poet finally made it to only place he could ever imagine living outside of his native Iran.
Feilli, who is openly gay, fled to Turkey in 2014 after getting blacklisted and detained by Iran’s morality militia. Today Feilli is safely ensconced in the Israeli metropolis of Tel Aviv where he can publish his writings without the threat of censorship or intimidation.
In 2011, he was arrested the first of three times. The first two he was detained by plainclothes agents for nearly a month, and the third lasted for 44 days. That last began in February 2014: He was at home alone when three bearded men forced their way into his house, wrapped him in tape, blindfolded him, and brought him to a garden where he was kept in a shipping container.
In fairness, the oppression he faced in Iran pales next to the trauma faced by gay special snowflakes when Milo Yiannopoulos criticizes feminism.
What interests me in this story is that the Tranny was okay with the school district’s accommodations. But the Obama SJW Bureaucrat and the Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarian attorney who insisted, “No, it’s not enough. We demand nothing less than complete submission to the Social Justice State.”
The district said she was allowed to change inside the girls’ locker room, but only behind a curtain. The student, who has not been publicly identified, has said she would probably use that curtain to change. But she and the federal government have insisted that she be allowed to make that decision voluntarily, and not because of requirements by the district.
“What our client wants is not hard to understand: She wants to be accepted for who she is and to be treated with dignity and respect — like any other student,” said John Knight, the director of the L.G.B.T. and H.I.V. Project of the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, who is representing the student. “The district’s insistence on separating my client from other students is blatant discrimination. Rather than approaching this issue with sensitivity and dignity, the district has attempted to justify its conduct by challenging my client’s identity as a girl.”
Because “feelings” have become the go-to excuse for expanding State Power.
It would be worth a Zombie Apocalypse to end this Social Justice Stupidity.
So, this post is written by Jeff; but I may say we/us/our in the following, meaning that I’m pretty sure that other GP authors would agree with me.
From time to time, trolls show up in GayPatriot’s comments section: people who are here not to provide new info or discuss anything for real, but only to throw accusations. They are usually left-wing. It’s fun, because they so often provide evidence for our points about how the Left thinks (or rather, doesn’t think).
You can tell a troll because his accusations are illogical. He usually shows little understanding of our viewpoints as the writers of GP, which may differ among us on some issues, but which are always rooted in our respect for human life including liberty (human freedom).
For example, if you understood anything about our viewpoints, you would know that we condemn violence^^ against gays and lesbians. And against women. And against black people or any minority. We condemn physical violence against anybody who isn’t a perpetrator of physical violence, because we condemn all physical violence that isn’t necessary for self-defense. No peaceful citizen should have to live in fear for his or her physical safety.
Likewise, we condemn anyone who -calls for- violence^^ against gays and lesbians, against women, or against anybody else who hasn’t committed criminal violence. To our way of thinking, we shouldn’t have to say the preceding, because it should be SO OBVIOUS that it flows from our principles. But if it’s important to you that we say it: there it is. Easy to say. Done.
It’s an example of something so basic that we would expect any commenter on GP who wants to be taken seriously to feel the same way. A similar example of something basic would be condemning violence against children – including the sexual exploitation of minors, such as child pornography or pedophilia**.
Rejecting the sexual exploitation of minors is so obvious and basic to being a decent human being that a person should not normally be asked to condemn pedophilia – but, if she is asked to, it should be quite easy for her to say “Of course I condemn it – Done.”
The thing is: When it comes to the Gay Left, and because the Gay Left sometimes tolerates NAMBLA or promotes certain individuals who do condone sex with minors, it may be legitimate to ask the person to condemn it. And when they condemn it, that’s good. You got your answer, and you move on to other topics.
At this point, a gay leftie might say “But then we’re right to ask you if you condemn violence against gays!! Because you tolerate or associate with Christians, and Christians promote or condone violence against gays!!!1!11!1!”
And the answer is: No, Christians don’t. Of course you can find some crazy/fringe person who happens to call themselves “Christian” and calls for violence against lesbians or gays; but the key words there are “crazy” and “fringe”. The words apply because the real world is different. In the real world, all major denominations of Christianity reject violence against gays.
But, sadly, it is not equally true that all major Gay Left groups, Pride parades, etc. shun NAMBLA and condemn anyone who has sex with teenage boys. Sadly, no.
All this came up in a recent GP thread. A leftie commenter asked me if I condemn violence against gays, and/or anyone calling for violence against gays. I replied readily that I do. Thinking that I was throwing the guy a softball, I said, now you can reciprocate my example by condemning pedophilia, right? He couldn’t or wouldn’t. Instead, he claimed that Christian leaders typically call for violence against gays. I demanded contemporary examples – and the one example that he provided (after some stalling and further hand-waving) was just a fringe nutcase, a worthless example.
- We (authors at Gay Patriot) condemn violence^^ against gays. (and always have)
- We condemn anyone who promotes or calls for violence^^ against gays. (and we always have)
- We condemn pedophilia**. (and always have)
- We find these things easy to say, when we are challenged about it.
- We think that any decent person should find these things easy to say, if they are challenged.
- We do NOT normally want people to be challenged on these things, in GP comments. (Why not? For staying on topic, for goodwill / presumption of innocence, etc.)
- But, if a troll is going to make challenges on these things, then he or she may expect to be challenged back – and had better come up with the right answers. As we do.
- In the future, when we are challenged, we may simply refer the troll back to this post.
(^^Violence meaning: real violence, which of course is physical violence.)
(**Pedophilia broadly also including hebephilia/ephebophilia, the sexual exploitation of teenagers or of any/all minors.)
Weepy, ineffectual Speaker of the House went on Face the Nation this morning to trash Conservatives in his own party. (Criticize Democrats? Of course not.)
Boehner ticked off the biggest legislative victories he had in the House ‘all voted against by my most conservative members’ because, as the Speaker put it, the bills weren’t ‘good enough.’
‘Really? This is the part that I really don’t understand,’ he said, shaking his head.
Continuing the tirade against the right flank of his party Boehner said, ‘absolutely they’re unrealistic,’
The problem is not that the Conservative Wing of the party is demanding perfection; the problem is that the conservative wing is getting nothing. There has not been a single piece of Conservative Legislation passed by Congress and signed into law since the 1996 Welfare Reform Act. Even during the period 2003 – 2007, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the Presidency, no substantive conservative legislation was passed. Under George W Bush, plenty of Progressive Legislation was passed… No Child Left Behind, the creation of the TSA, McCain-Feingold, the Sarbanes-Oxley Financial Regulations, and the Prescription Drug Entitlement, to name but a few. The only thing remotely conservative passed in the Bush years were some modest, temporary tax cuts; but even these were essentially progressive in that they did not substantially reform the tax code. Meanwhile, the Bush Administration lavished spending on the Federal bureaucracy, with all Departments receiving massive increases in their budgets.
The Republican leadership thought they could appease the Conservative base with symbolic, meaningless votes against Obamacare and endless hearings on the Obama scandals (Fast and Furious, IRS Targeting, NSA Domestic Spying, Benghazi, Hillary’s Emails, and now Planned Parenthood) that were just for show and accomplished absolutely nothing substantive. How long did Boehner and Company think they were going to keep the right satisfied with meaningless show votes and waste-of-time investigations?
Boehner and the Establishment complain about an unwillingness to “compromise,” an unwillingness to “work together.” But the fact of the matter is, compromise in Washington means promoting the progressive Democrat agenda. Boehner has done so, fully funding Obamacare, Fully funding Obamamnesty, and twisting arms to pass Obamatrade.
Granted, Obama and the Democrats are an iron wall, unwilling to compromise on anything in their agenda. Granted, the Senate Democrats filibuster all House legislation that doesn’t support their agenda, and Obama will veto anything that doesn’t give him exactly what he wants. But part of the job of an opposition party is to make the case why the dominant party is wrong. That is where the Republicans are failing the most.
Take Executive Amnesty, for example. The Republican Congress not only fully funds it, but only offers a weak, procedural argument against it that “the president is abusing his authority.” First of all, the Congress should not be funding unconstitutional acts of the president. But second, whining about process just sounds like you’re whining about process. If you want the public on your side against Executive Amnesty, you don’t just whine that the president isn’t playing by the rules. You go to the people and you tell them why the president is wrong. Illegal immigration is hurting people’s communities by taking resources away from schools and infrastructure. Illegal immigration is hurting the middle class by taking jobs and driving down wages. Make a case that people can relate to, don’t just argue like law school professors in a faculty lounge.
If Republicans are just going to go to Washington, and then whine that they can’t do anything but go along with the Democrat agenda, what is the point of the Republican Party?
