If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ve already encountered the inanities described in this week’s Newswithviews column. A stunned incredulity moves me to revisit them.
Governed by Idiots
Letting criminals run wild. Spending millions of dollars to find out whether house paint is racist. (Why not? Everything else is.) Spending millions more to reprint government documents with a different type face, because someone, somewhere, can’t read the ones we have.
How long can we keep on doing stupid stuff like this before our civilization capsizes?
Norway quaffs the Kool-Aid
I wish I could say this is a satire, but it isn’t.
Norway’s University of Bergen has spent over $1 million to find out if white paint is… “racist” (https://nypost.com/2023/01/20/norway-funds-research-to-find-out-if-white-paint-is-racist/). Actually, it sounds like they’ve already made up their minds and are only “doing research” to spend the money before someone takes it back.
White paint, says one of the jidrools in charge of this caper, helped “contribute to white supremacy” and [trumpet fanfare, please] has “planetary consequences.”
Babble, babble, babble.
Has Western civilization become too stupid to survive?
Remember how Organized Sodomy went gunning for Chick-Fil-A–I think for the “hate crime” of not supporting same-sex mockeries of marriage–and the American people rallied behind Chick-Fil-A and their sales went through the roof?
And then Chick-Fil-A dropped us and took up with the Far Left Crazy.
Get Your Chick-fil-A Weather Vane!
As Churchill said when Neville Chamberlain appeased Hitler, “He chose shame over war, and he will get war and shame.”
Hint: When you’re dealing with leftids, please remember they would pack you off to a death camp for the slightest deviation from the party line–if only they had the power.
And they’re working hard to get that kind of power.
In 2015 they took a survey and found 25 % (!) of British males claimed that they… er, menstruated. What does that say about our civilization?
Britain’s Menstruating Males
Maybe they don’t know what the word means. Let’s hear it for public education. Decks awash with “comprehensive sex education,” and this is what they have to show for it? Can we please have our tax dollars back?
I mean, if stuff like this is going to be what comes out of public education, we’d do just as well with no education at all.
No, I won’t provide a picture of this travesty. Here’s a nice ant-eater instead.
The doddering, out-to-lunch New York Times thought this clunker might’ve been the very best movie of the year. Well, they would, wouldn’t they?
‘The Year’s Best Movie’–Really?
Wow! The movie celebrates homosexuals! No wonder they gave it an award! They even tossed in more Far Left cliches than you can shake a stick at. Pitched to the Public Radio crowd, I guess.
Study the cultural spasms of just a few years ago, and they’ll lead you straight to the vileness that we see today.
What the cities can’t do, maybe our small towns can!

Can “teachers” and librarians hand out to children any old smut they please… and be immune from the prosecution that would ensue if you did it?
The state of Kansas says yes.
But the town of Edwardsville, KS, pop. 4,800, says no (https://readlion.com/2022/09/29/small-kansas-town-council-rejects-states-legal-protections-for-teachers-librarians-who-submit-obscene-materials-to-minors/?fbclid=IwAR3wZxal_F5TNpbgnOwYueOcW57zteY3WWqGorh3dGGRHMfEBptw1Na3gqs).
Kansas has a Uniform Public Offenses Code to serve as a model for towns and villages who want to make amendments to their respective governments. Many states have such codes. And in Kansas’ code, teachers and librarians can distribute sexually-charged materials to very young children–with no fear of prosecution.
The mayor and council of Edwardsville rejected that provision. There are many compelling reasons for not habituating children to pornography. Everybody knows that except “educators” at teachers’ colleges, unionized teachers, pedophiles, and Far Left morons. Oh–and “TV personalities,” too. Get your 8-year-olds jazzed up for sex!
But they won’t let you do that in Edwardsville.
The Lord Our God does not despise the day of small things, and neither should we. Rejoice! We owe the mayor and council of Edwardsville our gratitude.
May their example inspire others to do the same.
The one good thing to come out of the pandemic was that finally, at last, parents saw and heard what their children were being “taught” in public schools–and have begun to rise up against it.
But adults are still all la-di-dah about what they’re teaching themselves.
Bad Culture… Bad Politics?
“Entertainment,” manufactured by Hollywood and mindlessly consumed: it’s gotten so that a movie without filthiness, perversion, hatred of God and man, comes across as outstandingly eccentric. And TV is worse, if that were possible.
Every day we fill our minds with pap created by moral imbeciles. It’s catching up to us. Or should I say it’s caught us?
They come to school in stupid costumes… and the, um, “teachers” allow it.
Does your child’s public school classroom have any “furries” in it? You know–those kids who come to school in costumes, claim to “identify” as animals, and who must be constantly appeased by students and staff alike?
A friend who knows the teacher involved says there’s a kid in the class who “identifies”–and aren’t we getting good and sick of that word!–as a cat… and so a litter box has had to be installed in the girls’ lavatory. And everybody has to go along with her delusion. Please do not ask why.
How many nanoseconds, I wonder, would this have been allowed to go on while I was in school? Someone needs to take this kid aside and say, “Listen, let me explain it to you. You are not a cat. You are an idiot. And if you want to be an idiot, you freakin’ well won’t do it in this classroom.”
We might also ask why the child’s parents have allowed this to go on. Maybe Momma wants 15 minutes of fame. Somehow I doubt there’s a father in the picture.
My friend wonders if Momma feeds her furry offspring Meow Mix or Cat Chow.
The kid needs to be expelled from school until the foolishness stops.
There’s no fool like a ninny with a gavel
I have never in my life seen anything rolled out so fast, so maniacally, as the transgender juggernaut. Here it is being exalted by the high court of Maine, just eight years ago.
Another Wacko Court, Another Wacko Ruling
Great Caesar’s ghost! What is this judge talking about? How did he ever come up with such a mindless babble as “legitimate gender identity issues”? Presto! Abracadabra! Just like that, fantastic delusions become “legitimate”!
And we’re all supposed to bow down to it.
No, no, no, no! This emperor is stark naked, and we must not praise his wardrobe.
I haven’t the heart to illustrate this as I should. Here’s a nice crayfish instead.

A recent poll of college students by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education featured some distressing results.
Among current college students, 23% “identify” (whatever the hell that means) as LGBT; but in ritzy liberal arts colleges, the average is 38% and in some places “up to half the student body” (https://www.manhattan-institute.org/polarization-about-get-lot-worse-students-are-even-more-divided-we-are-opinion).
Well waddaya know? Propaganda works! It really works!
Why wouldn’t these wretched college students identify as homosexuals? You get constant praise from Important People who really matter! All through school your teachers have pushed you and encouraged you. Probably your folks hid their heads in the sand: very intoxicating stuff, knowing that your parents are afraid to cross you. The government loves you, Hollywood loves you, the United Nations loves you! And anyone who doesn’t had better watch out!
And please, no raking up ancient cliches about liberal arts colleges and how nothing ever changes.
Remember this easy rule of thumb. In considering any societal change recommended by Democrats and other parasites, simply ask, “What would happen if everybody did it?” And if the answer is “The human race would go extinct”–well, then you know where you are.
