My Newswithviews Column, Jan. 9 (‘Now They Want to Abolish Police’)

It’s not a crime if no one gets arrested for it.

One can only stand in awe before the towering heights of idiocy attained by liberals. Do they really believe any of the crazy s*** they say?

Now They Want to Abolish Police

“Guess what! Since I took office, the crime rate in our wonderful city is now… zero!” Gee, that always happens when you stop arresting criminals and stop charging them with crimes.

BTW, they’d also like to empty out the prisons. Turn all the criminals loose, to make room for those guilty of brand-new crimes like misgendering or climate change denial.

Liberalism–mental illness with a political dimension.


Atlanta Cops Won’t Chase Robbers

Sorry! New rule says we’ve gotta let the bad guy get away

What’s with our major cities?

Now it’s Atlanta, where the chief of police has just announced a new “zero chase policy” (https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/its-open-season-criminals-atlanta-police-stop-chasing-criminals). Yes, you read that right: police in Atlanta will no longer pursue fleeing criminals.

The police chief admits “this decision may drive crime up.” Gee, ya think? But she says they might as well stop trying to catch the bad guys because “the judicial system is largely unresponsive to the actions of the defendants.” We catch ’em, the courts release ’em.

Are we going to just give up on our cities? Well, the ones run by Democrats have already given up on themselves. Like, maybe we can have a civilization without cities. Or one in which only criminals inhabit the cities.

Progressivism marches on!


Bloomberg Pops His Cork

He’s crazy, too

What kind of joy-juice do they make you drink, before they let you be a Democrat candidate for president?

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is a very successful businessman and was reasonably successful as mayor of New York City. And now he sounds like a candidate for a rubber room (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/jan/6/michael-bloomberg-sees-california-model-us/?utm_source=ForAmerica&fbclid=IwAR3OwgctVj0aLLaBIO7zz6iD-itIvZcktLTJQGAFuhsnsa_5nNff2Xtb0r8).

“California is a great example for the rest of this country,” babbled the daft ex-mayor.

Oh? You mean that state, the only state out of fifty, where they turn off your electricity for days at a time?

What a role model. Why, every state needs a disastrously failed high-speed rail project that gulps down billions of dollars at a swallow, never to be seen again. Every state needs millions of illegal aliens pouring in, demanding free stuff. And who doesn’t envy San Francisco, where the public sidewalks do double duty as latrines?

As mayor of New York, Bloomberg won lasting fame by trying to ban everything enjoyed by adults, from cigarettes to sodas. He has often aired his view that governments can and should use taxation as a means of behavior modification… ’cause, ya know, people do need their behavior modified by philosopher-kings.

But if he had ever run his business enterprises like the Democrats run California, we wouldn’t be hearing from him now.

He’d be just another homeless person taking a dump on the sidewalk.


San Francisco, ‘American Dystopia’

Tucker Carlson on Fox News has launched a new series on the demise of America’s great cities, starting here with San Francisco. The purpose of the series, he says, is to “remind Washington what they’re supposed to be doing.” That is, preserving the quality of American life.

“Civilization itself,” he says, “is coming apart in San Francisco.” There is, in effect, no more law enforcement there. Any crime involving less than $950 in property damage or loss is simply ignored by the justice system. And meanwhile the sidewalks are full of human feces and discarded syringes. The city government hands out some 400,000 needles a month, free–which sort of encourages drug abuse.

But what the heck, they’ve still got the country’s biggest “pride” parades.

Two things need to be said. I don’t know whether Carlson is going to say them, so let’s say them here.

*This happens to every city where the Democrat Party rules. Go ahead, name a major city, governed by Democrats, that isn’t going to hell in a handbasket. Betcha can’t.

*This is happening to cities all over the Western world. Seen any pictures of Marseilles or Paris lately? Not nice! And if you’re ever in Stockholm–well, get out as fast as you can.

This is post-Christian know-it-all fat-head secular culture. It will prove to be an experiment in whether you can have a civilization without functioning cities.

Our one and only hope is to reject everything this stands for and run, don’t walk, back to God.


My Newswithviews Column, Jan. 2 (‘Teacher Unions vs. Teachers’)

See the source image

You would think teacher unions would defend classroom teachers against legislative measures that would make their jobs impossible. But you’d be wrong.

Teacher Unions vs. Teachers

That’s because Job One for the teacher unions is to crank out a whole generation of ignorant leftists. There is no Job Two.

The continued viability of the Democrat Party depends on “public education.”

Kill off public education, and the Far Left Crazy dies.


Now They Want to Abolish the Police

See the source image

Who needs police? We’ve got street gangs!

Again I ask: Do leftists actually believe the crazy s*** they say, or do they only say it because they think you’ll believe it?

The latest left-wing lunacy, now picking up steam in academic journals and among “progressive” politicians in cities ruled by Democrats, is the cry to abolish police (https://www.city-journal.org/abolish-police-call-to-action). Yup–get rid of all the cops. This is especially popular with nut-job politicians in Seattle–called “Free-attle” by criminals, because it’s such easy pickings there–and the killing fields of Chicago. I wonder how long it would take to depopulate Chicago, once you remove the police.

We have to do this, these geniuses say, because having police is sorta kinda like having slavery.

Besides, they say, we don’t need cops! According to some head case at The Nation, simply replace your police forces with “full social, economic, and political equality.” Damn, why didn’t I think of that? All ya gotta do is abolish poverty, sez The Nation, and people will just stop doing bad things. We all know rich people never do bad things.

What makes these wackos think they can get people to believe them? Do they have that much faith in colleges and public schools?

And once again we see the racism of the Left: “minorities” are totally incapable of behaving like civilized human beings, so they shouldn’t be expected to.

The Left needs to be utterly defeated in this year’s elections. We are in the most grave danger if they aren’t.


Can We Make California’s Schools Worse?

(Thanks to Susan for the nooze tip)

So you want to be a teacher!

Starting with the 2020 school year, a new California state law will make it illegal to suspend students for disobeying their teachers (https://www.kget.com/news/state-news/california-public-schools-cant-suspend-students-for-disobeying-teachers-new-law-says/?fbclid=IwAR2QG91Q1DWFdYRyuOTFBzyIP6HZvhaOC0mcqNamb-_pdH3PqBkHukqZJ7M). What an idea!

This will apply in 2020 to kids in grades 1-6. In 2021 through 2025, it will be expanded to cover students in grades 6-8.

The “reason,” as the virtue-signaling legislators call it, is because suspension for misbehavior is “disproportionately used against students of color.”

As a former teacher, I can’t imagine the chaos that will ensue. Suspension is a next-to-last resort, expulsion being the last resort, for getting disruptive students out of the classroom so that some education, at least, can go on. To discard that disciplinary measure is to give up all hope of maintaining order. And don’t tell me I’m wrong, because I’ve been there, done that.

Of course, none of these Far Left Crazy legislators will ever have to worry about trying to teach in a classroom where hooligans run wild. Nope, they’re perfectly safe from the consequences of their actions. They usually are. They make sure of that.

Government by liberals means ruin.

 


My Newswithviews Column, Dec. 26 (‘Biden Wants to Sacrifice Jobs’)

“You’re gonna need a bigger mouth.”

There isn’t enough money in the world to pay for all the lunatic projects proposed by our current crop of Democrats presidential wannabes.

Joe Biden Wants to Sacrifice Thousands of Jobs For a Green Economy

Hey, how about this? Pay reparations to everybody! Because we can pay for everything just by printing more money. Right?

I keep expecting to wake up and find out it was only a horrible dream, all these loons and losers vying to be president. But Joe Biden and the gang are only too real.


He’s Crazy, Too

See the source image

An experiment to see if it’s possible to embarrass Obama. Well, if Mayor Pete can’t do it, nobody can.

Democrat presidential candidates scare me. They should scare you, too.

Now it’s Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s turn in the straitjacket. He wants to pay “reparations” to illegal aliens (https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2019/12/19/buttigieg-commits-to-reparations-for-illegal-aliens-not-for-african-americans/)–to make up for all that stress we caused them, trying to enforce our country’s immigration laws. It’s not nice to inconvenience people whose only crime was to commit a crime.

Oh! And the “reparations” will come complete with a “fast track to U.S. citizenship,” says the jidrool who is mayor of some madhouse in Indiana. Lavishly reward those who break our laws!

He’s not sure, though, about doling out “reparations” to the descendants of slaves, five generations after slavery was abolished in America.

I’m still waiting for my free money. The Romans enslaved my ancestors. I should get free money for that. Money that somebody else had to work for.

Money that some Far Left Crazy politician is only too eager to give away. Someone else’s money. It’s always someone else’s money.

Democrat candidates for president: they’re all flaming crazy.


Where Will This Stop?

See the source image

Before we expose you to any more craziness-inducing Christmas music, here’s a reminder that an awful lot of people have already gone around the bend.

J.K. Rowling, the creator of Harry Potter–who, a few years ago, for no reason that readily presents itself, declared that one of her major characters, Dumbledore, was “gay”–has become the target of “a deluge of attacks” by the usual LGBT crowd–for defending a researcher who lost her job for saying “men cannot change into women” (https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/12/19/j-k-rowling-faces-deluge-of-attacks-from-lgbtq-community-over-transgender-tweet/). I wonder how deeply she had to research that.

Rowling’s controversial tweet: “Call yourself whatever you like… But force women out of their jobs for stating that sex is real?”

Why can’t you say that?

And here on our side of the Atlantic, the American Civil Liberties Union has demanded that tampons be made available in men’s rest rooms (https://www.foxnews.com/us/aclu-tampons-mens-room-menstrual-equity)–in order to achieve “menstrual equity” for “every person who menstruates.”

They’re all nuts.

It is as if our ruling class and whoopee crowd woke up one morning and declared, “Hey! We want transgender! Our civilization’s goin’ nowhere without transgender!” And leaped out of bed to impose their will on everybody.

It shouldn’t be necessary to say that men are men and can’t change into women, and women are women and can’t change into men. But now we’re headed to a point where no one is allowed to say that. Even though it’s true.

I don’t know about you, but it unnerves me to think that powerful, influential, college-educated persons are pushing this insanity–that they’ve got hold of the steering wheel and stomped the pedal to the metal, heading straight for the edge of the cliff.

This is not good, and it really has to stop.
