My Newswithviews Column, June 7 (‘Liberalism: Dangerously Silly’)

Liberalism would make a great Peter Sellers comedy. Unfortunately, it has escaped into the real world, where its actual effects are anything but funny.

This ideology contains basic drives for both anarchy and statism: sort of like trying to ride two bicycles at the same time.

None of us can feel safe until liberalism is put out of business forever.


County School Board Pushes ‘Transgender’

I’ve been to see the accountant, I’ve written my Newswithviews column for the week, I’ve typed up a chapter of my book–and now it’s time to revisit the wonderful world of public education! (Thanks, I think, to Linda for the news tip.)

The Fairfax County, Virginia, Board of Education has approved a new sex-ed curriculum in which the kiddies will be taught that “gender is fluid” and, in the words of one of the board’s sages, “Biological sex is meaningless!” (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2018/06/05/virginia-school-board-tells-kids-they-werent-born-male-or-female/)

Okay, here’s what I want to know. Who thinks this is a good idea–and why? We don’t see any of these board members submitting to radical surgery and pumping themselves full of hormones to “transition” to another sex. Why don’t leftids themselves ever do the damned things they want everybody else to do?

Come on, there must be some loon out there who can bring us up to speed on the benefits of this kind of teaching. If you’ve got a computer in your rubber room, we’d love to hear from you.

And we’re still waiting for parents to explain why they send their kids to public schools to be educated by nuts and morons.


How Will They Handle the Golden Globes?

See the source image

Oh, boy! Tomorrow is the Golden Globes! I’ll be sure not to watch it.

Traditionally an orgy of self-congratulation and puffery, this year’s Golden Globes will have a rather large skeleton at the feast–dozens and dozens of sexual harassment and misconduct accusations leveled at some of the biggest names in show biz (https://www.reuters.com/article/awards-goldenglobes-preview/party-or-not-golden-globes-proves-test-for-hollywood-sex-scandal-idUSL1N1OT1C2).

They want to yell “How great we are!”, while at the same time affirming their commitment to feminism… which has accused their industry of being a plague spot, morally. How are they going to swing it so their jokes don’t fall flat?

For six or seven decades Hollywood has labored feverishly to wipe out all traces of Christian sexual morality in America, with enthusiastic support from Democrats, the teachers’ unions, and the–ahem!–universities. Really, who can deny it? Movies, TV shows, commercials–it’s been all sex, all the time.

And then they’re astonished when all sorts of people start behaving like they’ve been told they ought to behave–as insatiable sex maniacs? That surprises them?

We live in an exciting time, when people want to be prudes and libertines simultaneously. I mean, there are movies and TV shows out there whose content would make a hyena blush. And somehow attendance at movies is way, way down. Go figure.

And they’re amazed that those who make these movies behave like the characters in them? Here at Chez Leester, we’ve turned off movies after just ten or fifteen minutes, they were so vile.

Hollywood has sown poison seed, and now they have to eat the fruit of it. Bon appetite.


‘Now I’ve Heard Everything’ (2016)

Lest we forget why Donald Trump is now our president and why that’s such a good thing…

Brilliant Scheme to Enforce ‘Inclusion’–Exclude Everybody!

Image result for images of lots of dead people

True diversity at last!

Pity the man who tries to satirize “higher education”! It does such a remarkable job of satirizing itself.

For years, the Ontario Human Rights Commission (the orcs from OHRC) have been troubled by what they see as a lack of Diversity in many individuals’ personal circles of friends, and have pondered what to do about it.

Well, ponder no more–Harvard has the answer!

Starting next year, and to be finished by 2022, Harvard will carry out a new university policy of banning student membership in all clubs, fraternities, and societies–even ones off-campus that have nothing to do with their stupid university–and expelling anyone who joins one (http://nypost.com/2017/07/13/harvards-plan-to-make-sure-undergrads-never-grow-up/).

This is because of “behavior inconsistent with an inclusive campus,” which they will make more inclusive by excluding all the voluntary associations, and “a disregard for personhood,” whatever the deuce that is, says a Harvard bigwig with more words than sense.

In one breath-taking stroke, Harvard has solved the problem of lack of inclusion among friends:

Simply don’t allow anyone to have any friends.

Not enough Diversity? Get more of it by forbidding anyone to join any group that would distinguish him from someone else who isn’t in the group. You can only join a group which literally everyone else has joined. No joining the Harvard Stratego Club unless every student joins at precisely the same instant in time.

And maybe they ought to ban personal names while they’re at it, because having your own name is un-inclusive, man! It might even be a microaggression.

Yoo-hoo! Harvard alumni! Did you really donate money to this shambles? Why do you sit there like a bunch of mummies? You’re almost as useless and ineffectual as the board of trustees.

Stop giving them money. Stop it right now.


Silliest Job in the World: Kampus Kop

Image result for images of keystone kops

So now the campus police at the University of Maryland are investigating “a discarded piece of plastic wrap” as “a possible hate-bias incident” (http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=9373). Some snowflake saw it lying on the ground and decided it was a noose, indicative of some soon-to-be-enacted lynching.

At first police said, “It’s just trash,” but that wasn’t good enough for “students.” So now the kampus kops have to pore over hours of closed-circuit spy camera footage to see if they can find some culprit purposely dropping the little bit of plastic there to terrorize people who really want to be terrorized.

Because of the “incident,” some of the students are demanding stricter “hate speech” rules.

Is anybody getting the idea, yet, that America’s bloated, over-funded, overcrowded “higher education” system is not performing any useful function–and needs to be cut way back?


The Galloping Felon Party

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:2)

Our help had better come from the Lord: this job is way too big for us.

Robert Knight has written a brief expose of the ACLU’s efforts to swing local elections (with Philadelphia being Ground Zero for the project) by harnessing convicted felons to canvass for Democrat votes ( https://townhall.com/columnists/robertknight/2017/05/23/the-aclus-excon-army-n2330448). Must be nice to have a convicted murderer ringing your doorbell on behalf of some left-wing candidate for prosecutor.

Money is pouring in from George Soros (of course). And get this. They call it the “Campaign for Smart Justice.” There are two words you should be afraid of when liberals invoke them, and they are both in that title: “smart” and “justice.” Trust liberals to give “justice” a bad name.

You’d think Democrats would be ashamed for their party to become known as the galloping felon party; but liberals are incapable of feeling shame. They are eager to mobilize an army of ex-cons: and, as one observer remarked, although it would clearly be against the law to do so, not much would stop them from wheeling the voting machines into the prison and allowing jailed felons to cast ballots.

The corruption is as deep as the sea and as high as the Himalayas. It wells out from the sinful human heart, stirred up by Satan. With its ceaseless promises of free stuff, social justice (whatever that is), and lots of fornication and never any adverse consequences, humanist liberalism is the welcome mat on the doorstep of Hell.

Only the sovereign power of God can and will defeat it: Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the cross, already has defeated it.

But it has pleased God to invite us to serve Him. We must not let the darkness overwhelm us: just about impossible, on our own; but the Lord will give us strength and courage, if we ask Him for it.


Prof Wants All White People to Pay ‘Reparations’ for Slavery

Image result for images of wealthy liberal college prof

I find it rather hard to empathize with Georgetown U. Sociology Prof. Michael Dyson. He has a tenured position. I don’t. He will have a nice pension when he retires. I won’t. He probably owns a home. I don’t.

And yet he thinks I should pay him my money as “reparations” for slavery that ended in America 150 years ago. He has never been a slave, I have never owned a slave (or even met one, or known anyone who’d ever seen one), but I have to pay.

Over my dead body, sunshine.

I missed this story when it came out in January. Dyson has recommended that white people–he has not defined “white,” which may keep people of mixed racial ancestry (that is, most of us) on tenterhooks–ought to set up “Individual Reparations Accounts” to pay back people who have never been slaves for slavery that ended 150 years ago. (http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=8618 )

This, he says, is not so much to grab money that the recipients never worked for as to “force white people to confront their own privilege and consider why you possess what you possess.” Then again, he looks forward to receiving other people’s money. “I ain’t turning down $25 million,” says the Ph. D.

I confess I find it hard to imagine the mental landscape of any individual so wanting in honesty, fairness, decency, and self-respect. If he had a little more integrity, he’d be a mugger.

Those who send their sons and daughters to Georgetown ought to be ashamed of themselves. They’re paying this freeloader’s salary and pension.

I really don’t see how “white privilege” or “systemic racism” or the Bossa Nova kept him out of an extremely comfortable and secure position. Do you?


Now That’s Reparations!

The Student Government Assn. at Western Kentucky University has passed a resolution that free college tuition ought to be given to “black” students–I put “black” in quotes because they don’t define the term–as reparations for slavery, which ended 150 years ago ( https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/kentucky/articles/2017-04-21/wku-student-government-calls-for-free-tuition-as-reparations ).

And by the way–what kind of reward is a college “education” that blows four or five years of your life to give you a bachelor’s degree in Nothing Studies?

Don’t you just love liberals? They give away other people’s hard-earned money so they can feel good about themselves. You don’t see them ponying up any of their own money.

Maybe I ought to demand reparations from Italy: the Romans enslaved my ancestors. With the interest accruing over 2,000 years, that ought to be a pretty hefty wad of dough.

Another thing that makes liberals feel righteous is stirring up strife among people who would otherwise be at peace with one another. The last thing they want is racial harmony. It would be a calamity for them.

Anyway, there you have it–more proof that America has too many colleges and universities, with way too many people in them, way too much money poured into it, and no longer serves any constructive purpose whatsoever.

Cut the funding now. These ninnies on the WKU Student Government panel need to be out in the real world, working and trying to support themselves. It might teach them a thing or two about cavalierly slinging around other people’s money to indulge a political delusion.


Dem: Political Speech Must Be Controlled

Image result for images of suppression of free speech

Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech…”  –The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States

The former chair of the Federal Election Commission, Ann Ravel, has declared that “political speech must be controlled on social media” ( https://heatst.com/politics/former-fec-chairwoman-calls-for-regulations-of-political-speech-on-the-internet/ ).

She has attributed opposition to her scheme to “misogyny.” Well, Ann, your idea would suck just as much if you were a man.

The Constitution is the law of the land, written in language that just about anybody can understand. But we all know what Democrats and other libs think of that whole “law of the land” business. Check out their position on immigration laws.

Gee, they’d sure be unhappy if Donald Trump ever proposed controlling political speech from his end of the stick. But we all know their position on hypocrisy, too: it’s only hypocrisy when someone else does it.

If we don’t exercise and defend our freedoms, there are a lot of people who’d be only too glad to take them away from us.

They must never, ever again be allowed to take power in this country.
