The Arrogance of Ignorance

See the source image

Hey, boys ‘n’ girls! Oops, sorry–shoulda said “purple penguins,” ’cause there’s like 50 different genders. Anyway–wanna *Save The Planet*? Of course you do!

The perky publicist has invited me to review a book by a sage, all of 17 years old, on how to  “stop catastrophic damages to the place we all call home.” How to “stop” it, eh? Ya mean, like hitting the “off” switch?

I wonder if we can guess where this precious little tyke is coming from. Hmm… Here’s a chapter called “Bye, Bye Big Business.” It’s about how “major corporations” stop Climbit Change legislation and “how young people can prevent this from happening.” Doubtless by electing Far Left Crazy Democrats and enacting the Green New Deal… just as soon as the Constitution is repealed.

I hope it goes without saying that I don’t mean for this to be insulting to teenagers in general. I really like their company, they’re good for me. I love it that a few teens have joined this blog, and I hope more will follow.

But having been a 17-year-old myself, I think I can state with perfect confidence that it would have been the height of folly to take me, at that age, for any kind of public policy adviser. So easy to be taken for a ride by one’s college professors, et al. And when adults praise you, it goes right to your head. Just tell us we’re really smart, and we’ll eat out of your hand. Been there, done that.

I’m not going to give this kid’s name, in hopes that he’ll grow out of this, nor the title of the book, because I don’t want anyone to blame me if they buy it.

All you need to know about “Climate Science” is that Far Left Crazy sees it as their ticket to a global government.


Some Kinda Stupid

Hmm, let’s see… In a case of some homicidal maniac barging into a school and shooting everybody, which do you suppose would be the more effective policy–to have some of the teachers armed, so they could maybe plug the bad guy before he can rack up his full tally of victims… or to give teachers another pay raise?

Sen. Kamala Harris, one of the Democrat Gang of 20 who think they should be president, sez “We need to give teachers a raise–not guns” (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/04/15/kamala-harris-give-teachers-raise-not-guns/).

What? As in “You can’t shoot me–I make too much money”?

In many communities, public school teachers already make multiples of what the defenseless taxpayers make. A few more multiples will make them safer? How? Well, I guess if you can retire at 35 instead of 55 and go on a world cruise, you ought to be pretty safe from school shooters.

It’s not funny that America is always one election away from self-destruction, anymore. Obama wounded us; Hillary would have surely finished us. For as long as the Democrat Party breeds nothing but Far Left Crazy, it constitutes an existential threat to our country.

But it’s great for teachers’ unions!


My Newswithviews Column, March 28 (‘Freedom–An Endangered Species’)

It’s so much more scientific to control people rather than letting them run free. C’mon–free-range human beings? Can’t be allowed!

For sure, Britain is farther down this road than we are. But Democrats drool with envy when they see some of the speech-restricting laws that Britain’s got. Oh! Wouldn’t it be just so gratifying, to force people to say things they know are total lies, and throw them into prison if they won’t!

Why do police enforce those laws? Beats me. You’d think they’d be ashamed.


UK Cops: For Shame!

Guarding Britain against misgendering!

“I want to be a police officer when I grow up, so I can lock people up for misgendering…”

British police are “investigating” a Catholic journalist for the ridiculous pseudo-crime of “misgendering” a 25-year-old man who says he’s now a woman (https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/03/19/police-question-uk-journalist-for-misgendering-a-transgender-woman/). They’ll arrest her, they say, unless she shows up at the cop shop for “a taped interview.”

Meanwhile, now that the news has come out, her whole family has been threatened and harassed by jidrools who’ve drunk the “transgender” Kool-Aid.

In its campaign to wipe out free speech, and truth, the UK now has a “Malicious Communications Act” which forbids you to say anything but nice things about anyone but Christians. You can get two years in prison for referring to a man as a man if he’s saying he’s a woman.

And I’m my own grandpa.

Hey, how come we never see cases like this on British cop shows? Busting those enemies of the people who call a man a man. Why are they so focused on solving murders?

Uh, because if you made a case like this the subject of a drama, the audience would mistake it for a comedy?

But it isn’t so funny for this Catholic journalist who’s now being harassed, vilified, and persecuted because she wouldn’t play along with the transgender delusion. This woman is being treated as a criminal because she wouldn’t say something that isn’t true.

Shame on Britain. Shame on the British cops for slavishly enforcing this absurd “law” that is an affront to sanity.

And if we don’t watch out, Democrats will be passing such laws for us. They can’t wait to do the same.


Translation: ‘We Wanna Get High’

My home state of New Jersey–you know: that state that everybody makes jokes about, and rude noises–is scurrying around, trying to get pot legalized in a vote this coming Monday in the legislature. Because–wait for it–legalizing marijuana is “a civil rights imperative” (https://www.nj.com/politics/2019/03/legalizing-weed-will-put-nj-on-the-right-side-of-civil-rights-history-murphy-says.html)

See, not legalizing marijuana–why, that’s just like slavery! And legalizing it, sez our governor, will get “all the bad guys” out of the pot business. And net the state scads and scads of revenue so they can pay those teacher union pensions.

(Why is smoking pot good, but smoking tobacco bad? The same leftids who dump all over you for smoking tobacco want to canonize you for smoking pot.)

Believe it or not, this is actually a worse idea than it was 50 years ago. According to Alex Berenson, in a recent speech at Hillsdale College reported in “Imprimis,” Hillsdale’s newsletter (Jan. 2019, Vol. 48, No. 1), the chemical in pot that gets you high is ten times stronger, or even more, than it was in the 1970s–better living through chemistry.

Just what our country needs. More drugs. Stronger drugs.

Liberals have reached a point in their development where they actively seek out and strive for whatever is evil, foolish, wasteful, wrong, stupid, or contemptible. That makes it easy for the rest of us: whatever a Democrat is for, oppose it, because you know it’s bad.

My pot-head friends in the 1970s were boring and silly. Now, with the drug ten times stronger, users are leaving boring and silly behind and venturing into paranoia, violence, and depression.

Civil rights imperative. Hot dog.


Lower the Voting Age to 16?

See the source image

Generally I try to avoid discussing any politics on Sunday. I try to follow the example of Judas the Maccabee who, although he was fighting for his nation’s life, still wouldn’t fight on the Sabbath except in self-defense.

I’ll make this brief. I mention it because it just might be one of those things they put over on us while we’re looking the other way and then, when it’s too late, we wonder how they did it.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (Far Left-California) says she wants to see the voting age lowered to 16 (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6810889/Pelosi-wants-voting-age-lowered-16-capture-kids-high-school.html). She tried to insert the measure into an “anti-corruption bill”–the hypocrisy could actually suffocate you–but couldn’t quite manage it.

In one of those rare moments when a Democrat accidentally says something that is true, Pelosi explained why she wants to do this:

“It’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school.”

“Capture”? Did she say “capture”? Well, public education has already done that!

There is more that needs to be said about this republic-killing proposal, but I’ll save it for tomorrow.


Holy Moley, Look What I Found!

Gov. Northam wants to kill ’em after they’re born. That’d be fourth trimester, wouldn’t it?

Six years ago–count ’em: six–the Media Research Council as a stunt, a hoax, a gag, asked college students if they supported abortions in the fourth trimester. Of course a lot of them didn’t know what a “trimester” was: maybe a new part of the body. As for the rest, a majority said “yes.”

https://leeduigon.com/2013/07/26/your-college-tuition-dollars-at-work/

And now, in 2019, we’ve got Democrat states competing with each other to see which one can allow the latest abortions. New York’s ahead: they’ll let you womens-health the baby as he’s coming out of the womb. Virginia did try to one-up New York on that, but it wouldn’t fly.

Out-and-out infanticide is no longer the stuff of dystopian science fiction. Brought to you by liberals, progressives, anti-human humanists–in short, the Democrat Party.


Climate Cult: ‘This is How We Stopped Climate Change’

See the source image

Honest, you’ll like it! (Or else)

Paid for by the defenseless American taxpayer, National Public Radio recently featured “It’s 2050, and This Is How We Stopped Climate Change” (https://knpr.org/npr/2019-03/its-2050-and-how-we-stopped-climate-change). Yowsah, yowsah, “A world without climate change!”

Where do you even begin, with such fat-headed hubris? A world without climate change? Hey, aren’t you guys the ones who are always clubbing us over the head with “settled science”? Do any of you have a Geology 101 textbook? Aren’t you supposed to be able to look at the rocks and tell what happened in the past? I mean, how did all those seashells wind up on the tops of mountains? What are all those whale fossils doing in the middle of the Sahara Desert? Think there might have been some climate change involved there? Don’t you bother to learn your own “science”?

So where the devil was this “world without climate change”? Oh–what’s that? It couldn’t happen until you guys came along, to make it happen? Hubris, man. That’s hubris.

Anyway, here’s how they’re gonna “stop climate change” by 2050, creating a paradise on earth.

*Solar and wind power will replace any and all other methods of generating electricity, giving us a “zero-carbon world.” See, we gotta have zero greenhouse gases by 2050, or we’re all gonna die. Or something.

*”Urbanization of everything”! Oh, peachy. No more suburbs allowed, no more cars, no more private homes, shove five families into every house–a la the Soviet Union, circa 1930. All housing will be multifamily housing, you’ll walk to work and like it, and no one, but no one, will ever be stressed out by being forced to live without space, without privacy.

Wait a minute–hasn’t that book already been written? Sure it has: The Hunger Games. They want us to live like we’re in The Hunger Games.

*Cut way back on the consumption of beef, replacing it with lots and lots of artificial food brewed up in the labs (“Soylent Green is people”) and it will taste real good, you won’t want White Castles anymore.

What do you want to bet our noble and glorious leaders, and their pet savants of Science, will continue to enjoy lavish mansions, private jets, limousines, and all the beef they can stuff into their mouths with both hands?

Boy, if we actually let them do this stuff to us–! Well, then we’d deserve it, wouldn’t we?

 

 


Loony Lib Deletes Green New Deal from Her Website

See the source image

Well, that was fast!

Twenty-something Congresswoman, former bartender, and all-around yonk Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lit up the national chat room last Thursday, Feb. 7, by posting a “Green New Deal” that was certainly one of the most bizarre documents ever to seep out of American politics. After a day of incredulity, mockery, and concern for the bozo’s mental health, the post was deleted from the page on the night of Feb. 7 (https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/02/why_was_the_green_new_deal_yanked_from_ocasiocortezs_website.html).

Among the provisions that got the most flak was 1) to pay a guaranteed income to persons “unwilling to work,” 2) to abolish air travel and replace it with “high-speed rail” [to Europe?], and 3) to tear down every building in America and replace it with a new one.

Well, yeah, that’s pretty crazy stuff, all right. Rubber room material for sure. Cuckoo for cocoa puffs.

So they wiped it off the website and are trying to pretend it was never there, or maybe it was but Republican hackers planted it, or it was just a rough draft that wasn’t supposed to be published, blah-blah-blah. Ocrazyo-Cortez reminds us that “the real one”–apparently there’s a “real Green New Deal” somewhere that doesn’t include any howling at the moon–has “70 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives” and has been endorsed by every single one of  a dozen Democrat presidential candidates. I guess “the real one” only confiscates our cars, brings back Obamacare, and makes us all Citizens Of The World, subject to United Nations supervision… ‘Cause we’re just deplorables and we all need supervision, dontcha know.

So they reached out to steal a marshmallow and got their fingers burned: snatch ’em back, put ’em in your mouth, and try again a little later.

A little bit here, a little bit there, and eventually they’ve got us where they want us–pressed face-down to the floor, with their boots on our necks.

But it’s all To Save The P*L*A*N*E*T! So that makes it necessary.
