The Cancel Counter

I am not a big fan of National Review. It has too many weak, fake conservatives, too many RINO’s and way too many Never Trumpers. They have done this one good piece of reporting: documenting the left’s assaults on free speech, thought, and America’s history. The list is growing.

Here Is A Brilliant Idea

If leftist radicals supported by leftist Democrats want to cancel – fill in the blank – they must cancel the Democrat Party.

VICTOR JOECKS: If UNLV’s Hey Reb! mascot is racist, then so is the Democratic Party

The Democrat Party’s history and it’s very existence is steeped in racism. The party traces itself back to the 1820’s and was strongly pro-slavery. The South fought a civil war against the US and was pretty much 100% Democrat. After losing the war, Democrats founded the KKK and opposed many rights being granted to blacks. Even in the 1900’s, prominent Democrats were virulent racists, including Woodrow Wilson. The Civil Rights Act is the 1960’s was not passed to give blacks more freedom and autonomy, but to buy them off as a voting block.

If the Democrat Party has an ounce of integrity, it will disband and dissolve. Or, the left must completely disavow it, if it really cares about racism. I won’t hold my breath.

George Washington Torn Down and Desecrated In Portland

I hate it when I am right. That took about two minutes…I thought it might take two months or two years. Evil, deranged, far-left Marxist (I am assuming) radicals in Portland tore down and desecrated a statue of the father of our country, thereby giving the GOP the single best campaign ad image perhaps EVER, if they are smart. It took these unhinged criminals about two minutes to go from Confederate generals to George. I may be wrong, but mark this as the moment Trump won re-election and the GOP takes back the entire government. This has to be a bridge too far for 80% of the country. The GOP needs to run this on an endless loop between now and November.

The far-left wants to destroy the country and erase it’s history. They will do to any “non-believer” what they did to Washington’s statue. They are enabled by the corrupt, America-hating Democrat Party of Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, AOC, and all the rest. Make them pay at the ballot box.

The Sewer That Is the WaPo Sinks To A New Low

And even their leftist readers are incensed. Seems the WaPo did a story on a woman who appeared in blackface at a party two years ago as a parody, one that did not go over well. The woman is a leftist/progressive, and apologized but that did not matter. Two women at the party who were deeply “offended” then shopped the WaPo until they found someone to write a story and name names. The woman has subsequently lost her job.

So there you have the American Marxist left: destroy and average Jane over something so silly and innocuous it defies description. That these evil angry leftists (the two women and these idiots at the WaPo) will destroy each other should tell everyone all you need to know. Robespierre himself had nothing on some of today’s American leftists.

Great moment for American media: WaPo doxxes woman no one’s heard of, gets her fired for … 2018 Halloween costume

Readers unanimously agree the Post made a huge mistake publishing that Halloween cancel culture story

 

Sports Has A Problem And Being Woke Won’t Help

Excellent analysis on consumer opinions and the threat to multiple industries with the advent of Covid,  the resulting lockdowns, and now domestic unrest, bullying by the left and virtue signaling aplenty. The author focuses on sports and echos my views. A lot of data to back up his claims.

Sports Has a Problem …Being Woke Ain’t Helping

 

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:

https://www.bizpacreview.com/2020/06/16/ok-state-head-coach-forced-to-grovel-over-wearing-a-one-america-news-t-shirt-in-a-pic-after-black-player-complains-935101

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.

 

 

 

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.

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.
