The Latest Idiocy In Woke, Leftist Cancel Culture

Quaker gets rid of Aunt Jemima:

https://www.foxnews.com/food-drink/aunt-jemima-brand-removing-image-racial-stereotype

So until two minutes ago poor Aunt Jemima wasn’t racist, but now she is. So, are companies going to replace all icons of color with bland, innocuous white people? Is that not racist? The real racists here are the left-wing outrage mob and the gutless corporate executives bowing to them, both of whom feel they have to infantilize an entire race, lest they be “triggered” by an inoffensive, lovable, matronly black woman. First it was Lee, Jackson and Aunt Jemima, next it will be the Sun-Maid girl (sexist!), Jefferson and Washington. Then maybe even FDR (he did imprison US citizens of Japanese descent after all), and Kennedy. The left will not stop until society stands up to them, figuratively or literally. They never do. The left is repeating what Stalinists, Maoists and Nazis did. And ISIS.

Story number two, Mike Gundy is a coward:

Gundy apologized for, wait for it, wearing the T-shirt with the logo of a conservative news network on it! OMG, it’s the end of the world! Unfortunately for him, his most prominent player attacked him on Twitter (of course) instead of talking to him like a real man. I suspect the player did not even know what OAN was but was fed the news by some leftist outrage troll. Gundy then either apologized after he realized he might have a Saints-like player revolt, or was told to do so. The coach became famous a few years ago for standing up to the media that was critical of his starting black quarterback, exclaiming “Come after me! I’m a man, I’m 40!” I guess Gundy just lost his “man-card”. That Mike Gundy was nowhere to be found yesterday. It will take some prominent people to stand up to the mob or this will continue and get worse.

 

 

 

Jason Whitlock Calls Out Athlete and Social Media Outrage and Cancel Culture

Whitlock is one of the preeminent voices in sports media (and a black man coincidentally) calling out leftism for its intolerance and bullying in culture and how it is ruining sports. He is also a strong free speech advocate and recently joined Outkick the Coverage. He echos many of my comments or perhaps vice-versa. Here is a little tip to coaches, owners and administrators. Next time a black athlete has a temper-tantrum over some fake “injustice” or racism, tell them black unemployment was at an all-time low under the current president they seem to hate so much, until the illegal Covid lockdown pushed largely by Democrats caused it to soar. Maybe they will stop and think.

Rolling Stone Editor: The Left Has Lost Its Mind

Matt Taibbi is not a centrist, and he probably isn’t even a true liberal. Call him “liberal-left”. But the Rolling Stone editor may be the last honest leftist in media, and he’s a smart guy. He knows the mob will come for them when it is done with the GOP, conservatives and centrists. It already is. When the left loses Matt Taibbi, it is in trouble.

Tucker Carlson: The Very Idea of Free Speech and Thought is Under Attack

It is VERY dangerous and must stop now. Left-wing media, academia and big tech is in on it. And many large corporations and influential people are acquiescing to the mob out of fear. Placating the mob will never work. If you apologize they will come back for more. Next they will make you kneel before them. Then they will make you admit to some “crime”. Then they will take your house. Then perhaps they will imprison you and if you are unlucky, give you a case of “lead poisoning”. History is full of such examples…too bad much of our country does not know its history. Like they said in Germany “when the Nazis had no one left to come for, they came for me.”

Two Black Women Handcuffed For Protesting Outside of Planned Parenthood

Maybe if they threw a brick through Planned Parenthood’s window they would have been left alone.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/nyc-protest-abortion-clinic-george-floyd-handcuffed

These brave women are pointing out the obvious hypocrisy of Black Lives Matter and the abortion industry that kills 300,000 black babies annually. And the PP center in NYC is named for a REAL racist, the one who founded PP and was a well-known eugenicist.

While Chicago Burns, Mayor Nero Fiddles

Chicago is totally screwed, being led by a thoroughly incompetent hard-core leftist. The city is literally a war-zone. Chicago is finished unless someone else takes charge quickly. I bet Chicagoans miss Rahm Emanuel now, corruption and all. At least he would have tried to keep the peace.

The Left Destroys Everything (or Tries To)

Let’s not allow them to ruin sports. The left has already destroyed journalism. They have damaged education immeasurably. They have tried mightily to ruin entertainment. They have tried with sports but have yet to succeed. There are a few reasons for this. In certain sports the fan base skews conservative. Very few sports are run by or followed by leftists primarily. Fans tend to be patriotic. People want their sports free of politics. The misguided kneeling protests in the NFL and the politicization of ESPN, both of which damaged their businesses, are proof of this. In addition, sports represents a meritocracy and a real opportunity to compete and socialize with people from diverse backgrounds. Sports usually bring out the best in us. My kids have had the opportunity to compete with and against kids who are white, black, Asian, and Indian with not a single issue or problem. They are teammates, opponents, friends and are respected as human beings, not as some racial group. Sports unites us, but leftism divides.

You can count on the far-left to use the Floyd killing and domestic unrest to once again politicize sports. It is already happening, from the shameful bullying of Drew Brees, who said nothing wrong, to the NFL prostrating itself at the alter of BLM. And it is going to get worse. It is probably a blessing right now that we are largely sports-free, saving us from the preachy lecturing from a bunch of multi-multi-millionaires. One black ex-football player nailed it when he said “the NFL has done more to lift black men out of poverty than perhaps any business in the country’s history. quit complaining”. If athletes and leagues want to use their bully pulpit to tell us how terrible we are and to repent, I suggest we all vote with our feet. Sports are supposed to be an escape. I am perfectly fine playing rec sports as an adult and watching my kids compete in high school. I am happy to walk away from sports entertainment if the left takes over.

The US Has Completely Lost Its Mind

Welp, go away for a week and the country completely goes to shit. As if the Covid lockdowns were not bad enough, now we have full-blown rioting around much of the country to deal with.

I am going to make a few comments and then link to some excellent articles. I believe George Floyd was murdered, full stop. Terrible. The cop(s) who did it will serve hard time. Peaceful protest are welcomed…that should be the end of it. Instead the country is in flames. But Floyd’s killing is not the primary reason: we have similar situations every few years with nothing close to this reaction. Some of the killings are legitimate: think Michael Brown who was proven to have viciously attacked a cop. Others were not: think Freddie Grey in Baltimore. So ask yourself: what is different this time? I will tell you: the Covid lockdowns that forced hundreds of millions to shelter in place for months with no direction and often little hope, and threw 30-40 million people out of work almost overnight, many of them blacks. The black unemployment rate was the lowest in history before the lockdown at something like 6%, and now some people are saying it is 50%! Now I think that is an exaggeration, but even 30% is appalling. So there it is, thanks mainly to the political left and the Democrat party. Even some liberals have connected the dots. I cannot prove this, but neither can it be disproved. And corrupt leftist mayors and governors running the cities and states that are primarily to blame know they are guilty. But no, it’s racist cops hunting black men. The far-left media is guilty as well, openly cheering on the destruction until it comes to their neighborhood, as if it is the last chance to get Trump and bring in socialism. And far-left cities and states that have been way too soft on crime for years (think the home of Antifa, Portland) and are hopelessly corrupt have set the stage for mass unrest. So Floyd’s killing is not the primary cause: years of inner city neglect and corruption, weak, feckless leftist politicians, far-left media cheerleading and finally a draconian nationwide shutdown set the stage for a calamity. George Floyd’s killing was simply the match that lit a very large pile of tinder.

Fact: 9-10 unarmed blacks are killed by cops annually, compared to 19-20 whites. A cop is 18.5% more likely to die at the hands of a black criminal. Compare the 200+ total annual killings of blacks by cops to the 7000+ black-on-black murders annually. These are all facts. Privilege exists, white privilege is a lie. Privilege is not based on race. Asians do far better than whites as a whole by many metrics: is there Asian privilege? Well, let me correct that. People of a certain color are currently allowed to loot, rob, vandalize and assault with impunity in certain cities: does that sound like “privilege”? Racism exists but most people are not racist and nobody is born that way. Institutional racism is a lie. Many of these cities are run mainly by blacks…are they racist against their own people? Black lives only matter when a cop kills a black man. It does not apply to black cops killed (which is not a rarity) nor the roughly 300,000 abortions of black babies annually. The movement is not about equity, it is about intimidation and power. What is obvious as well is that white Antifa thugs are behind a lot of the mayhem…and in some neighborhoods the peace-loving law-abiding blacks are fighting back. This is a violent revolt, not a race protest. Minneapolis and NYC are in a race to see which city can commit suicide faster.

Well, here are the articles.

Studies Show Hydroxychloroquine Effective Against Covid

Five studies show the effectiveness of the drug against Covid 19 when used early in outpatient applications. This matches what I have heard from doctors in the field who have treated Covid patients. When used EARLY it is highly effective. But – Orange Man Bad! The left would literally rather have people die than have Trump be right. You wont see this in the far-left lamestream media.

Clay Travis Drops Massive Truth Bomb On the Covid Panic

34 states had more deaths from the flu in 2018 than Covid deaths this year. That is straight from the CDc itself. In Pennsylvania, more people over 100 have died of Covid (or related) than those under 45. Think about that: OVER 100 years old! Did we shut down the country in 2018 over the flu?? No!

2020 will go down in history as one of the worst, unnecessary panics in human history. Covid is fear without any real danger, and corrupt left wing media and the rot that is social media pushed it.
