  • Alt-Left Insanity: Raising My Child Amid my Climate Apocalypse Fantasies

    07/21/2018 7:00:17 AM PDT · by rktman · 23 replies ^ | 7/20/2018 | Matt Philbin
    Plumbing the cesspool of the hard-left mind. To suffer through Roy Scranton’s New York Times oped, “Raising My Child in a Doomed World,” is to come away wondering how a guy so hang-dog depressing and lacking in discernable masculine qualities managed to attract a woman -- sorry, a “partner” in Scranton-speak -- at all, let alone got her to procreate with him. He tells us the day his daughter was born he cried looking out the hospital window with her “at the rows of cars in the hospital parking lot, the strip mall across the street, the box stores and...
  • Anti-Trump uprising in the UK

    07/15/2018 11:07:49 AM PDT · by rktman · 26 replies ^ | 7/15/2018 | John Scotto
    Many leftists took to the London streets Friday in response to Donald Trump's most recent visit to the UK. The UK virtue signalers were out in full force protesting the Donald Trump presidency. Many of these leftist UK citizens were out parroting their usual hate filled rants in strict accordance with their liberal propagandist cue cards. Mere actors in a tragic play shouting their all too familiar rehearsed lines: Trump is a racist, Trump is misogynist, Trump is xenophobic, Trump is the devil, Trump must go, Trump is promoting global warming.
  • On the Eve of Independence Day, Students Are Giving the Finger to the United States

    Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform interviewed students at New York University to test the truth of a Gallup Poll showing a sharp decline in young Americans who are proud of their country. Sadly, the responses he received aren’t surprising. Student after student made it clear: they were not. “No! I’m not proud of America. I’m not proud of what we’ve done,” said one student, while another simply declared, “definitely not.” One student, addressing the concept of American Exceptionalism, said “I think we need to stop thinking we’re the best nation on Earth. It’s just egotistical and not accurate.” When asked...
  • The sad, unmourned death of a feminist, anti-capitalist bookstore

    07/02/2018 9:35:38 AM PDT · by rktman · 43 replies ^ | 7/2/2018 | Jazz Shaw
    This story is just so sad and yet instructive to 21st-century society that it couldn’t be allowed to pass without comment. Courtesy of PJ Media, we learn of an innovative bookstore in Portland, Oregon which sought to break all the rules, defy the dictates of conventional society and strike a blow for the coming revolution. Started back in 1993, a “feminist bookstore” named In Other Words had sought to challenge the patriarchy, capitalism and the status quo by operating a business which would sell books below market cost, provide a welcoming environment for the unconventional and – wait for it...
  • The left's dehumanizing rhetorical cesspool

    06/21/2018 7:41:23 AM PDT · by rktman · 15 replies ^ | 6/21/2018 | Erik Rush
    One need not look too far to find an instance of some prominent liberal unleashing a mouthful of profane derision upon someone who has given them offense for one reason or another. These days, this sort of thing has been chiefly reserved for President Donald Trump and members of his family, although practically anyone who runs afoul of leftist orthodoxy is very much considered fair game. Personally, I don’t have much of a problem with scathing criticism of one’s political opponents, particularly if they are decidedly odious or perennially mouthy individuals. I also find it gratifying that President Trump is...

    The National Football League has done nothing to recover during the off season from it’s miserable popularity ratings that are now at the lowest ever. Rocked by the issues of players taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem, overly long games, and scandalous players, just 35 percent say they have a favorable view of “America’s sport.”
  • Starbucks chairman: Trump's rhetoric partly to blame for 'racial divide(Puke alarm!)

    Starbucks executive chairman Howard Schultz said on Tuesday that President Trump's rhetoric on race is partly to blame for the country's "racial divide." Schultz said he believes the president has given people license to copy the "behavior and language that comes out of this administration," in an interview with CNN Tuesday. "Having said that, the racial divide and the inequities that exist between people of color and caucasians in America is a problem that's existed for quite some time and I think — we have to ask ourselves a very important question and that is, what kind of country do...
  • Al Sharpton: royal wedding proves ‘white male supremacy is on its last breath.’ But then, Trump

    Leading the way was race hustler Al Sharpton, the MSNBC host who carved out a very comfortable living for himself shaking down corporations. Speaking at a rally Saturday put on by his National Action Network, Sharpton took the lovely union of two people in love to say the royal wedding is proof that white male supremacy is coming to an end, the New York Daily News reported.
  • Swedes lead Bethune Cookman to 'minority' golf title

    "The Bethune Cookman Men were led by medalist Marcus Sundlof, of Sweden (65-70-71 206), who bested his teammate Christian Hovstadius for the honor by seven strokes." So reads one of the more revealing sentences in a PGA website article on the soi-disant "PGA Minority Collegiate Championship," which was staged this past weekend in Florida. Forgive my French here, but the championship has a distinctly European flavor. Christian Hovstadius is a Swede as well. The Winning Bethune-Cookman team boasts two Swedes, two Irishmen, an Englishman, a Canadian, a white guy from Venezuela, and an all-white coaching staff. The top four finishers...
  • What weather should we really worry about?

    Earth is a dangerous place. Of all the species that have ever lived, over 95% have already been extinguished by natural disasters. Ice, not global warming, is the big killer, and this recurring calamity often strikes quickly. Thousands of mammoths and other animals were killed by ice storms, and their snap-frozen bodies are still entombed in ice around the Arctic. Just 15,000 years ago, great ice sheets smothered the northern hemisphere as far south as Chicago, Moscow, and London, and all life had migrated toward the equator. This deadly ice had gripped Earth for about 50,000 years. Ice ages are...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), an avid open borders advocate, is praised in the latest edition of American Vogue by illegal aliens for being the illegal alien population’s “strongest ally.” Harris’s new profile in Vogue focuses much of its attention on her fight to give amnesty to the 12 to 30 million illegal aliens currently living in the U.S. – especially those who have been shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    Full header: "The mayor of London read racist tweets about himself during SXSW as a plea for Facebook and Twitter to stop hate speech" At the annual SXSW festival in Austin on Monday, the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, made a moving plea for tech companies to take on hate speech. During his talk, the mayor read racist tweets about himself. "I say kill the mayor of London and you'll be rid of one Muslim terrorist," Khan read aloud. "I'd pay for someone to execute Sadiq Khan."
  • SWAT Officers Who Rushed to Scene of Parkland Shooting Without Permission Have Been Disciplined

    Two Miramar Police Department SWAT team members, Det. Jeffery Gilbert and Det. Carl Schlosser, were off duty and training at Coral Springs when they learned of the shooting at nearby Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last month, where 17 people were killed. Instead of treating the two men as heroes, the SWAT's unit commander informed the two men that they had been temporarily suspended from their duties. They were unwanted, you see. “Effective immediately you have been suspended from the SWAT Team until further notice,” wrote Capt. Kevin Nosowicz, the unit’s commander, in a Feb. 22 memo obtained by the...

    You knew it was going to happen. Anytime someone uses an AR-15 for anything bad, the left decides to trot out its latest version of the assault weapon ban. They’re so panicky, they just can’t help themselves but to try and legislate away their personal boogeyman. This time, the proposal would wipe out an entire industry if it were to pass.
  • CDC director bought tobacco stock while in office(OMG!)

    The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Brenda Fitzgerald, bought tobacco stock while in office, Politico reported Tuesday. The purchase poses a serious risk of conflict of interest given that the CDC helps lead efforts to prevent smoking. A Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) spokesperson confirmed the “potentially conflicting” purchase to The Hill, saying they were handled by her financial manager and she later sold the stock. The stock purchase was between $1,001 and $15,000 in Japan Tobacco, Politico reported. She also reportedly bought stock in a range of health-care companies, including Humana and...

    Amidst all the hoopla over President Trump’s crass comments about which immigrants the United States should let in, The View host Joy Behar ignorantly claimed that Norwegian immigrants wouldn’t want to come to America anyway, because their country is superior to the United States. Fellow host Whoopi Goldberg blasted Trump for singling out Norwegians as the kind of immigrants America wants, saying that it was a clear affront to “brown people.” She claimed that Norwegian immigrants aren’t coming here for Trump anyway. “And Sir, just so you know, they don't want you to be their president. They -- they're not...

    Actress Connie Britton wore a “Poverty Is Sexist” shirt to the 2018 Golden Globes Sunday. Britton, 50, an actress who is known for her role on the TV show “Nashville” wore a “Poverty Is Sexist” sweater to protest economic inequality between men and women in economically disadvantaged communities, during the 2018 Golden Globes, reported E!

Other sweaters from the line typically go for $380, according to the campaign’s website. Britton has a net worth of...

    Arab nations will push for recognition of “Palestine” with eastern Jerusalem as its capital following President Donald Trump’s recognition of the city as Israel’s capital last month. Jordanian Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on Saturday met with Arab foreign ministers from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, the UAE and the Palestinian Authority as well as Arab League chief Ahmed Abul Gheit to discuss the status of Jerusalem.

    Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders released a video Thursday on social media that showed a number of millionaires asking for higher taxes in response to the GOP tax cut, which cut taxes for over 80% of America, including some wealthy Americans. The video consists of rich men sitting down and saying lines like “tax me,” “I want to be taxed more,” and “you should raise my taxes.” The video then devolves into rich white guys feeling guilty that they are rich white guys. Mr. Trump, listen to these Patriotic Millionaires who want their taxes raised, not cut. — Bernie Sanders...

    The left-wing, Antifa Refuse Fascism group is planning rallies in at least 20 cities across the United States on Saturday to demand that the duly-elected President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence be “driven from power.” In a full-page ad in the New York Times on Wednesday, the group advertised its event: Nov 4 it begins — be there — join with the thousands who will gather in cities and towns across the country. A movement of protests that continue every day and night, growing until we become millions … determined not to stop until this is driven from...
