No sooner do I publish one of these things, I have seven more stories. It’s getting hard to keep up with these silly stories, but they- the culture warriors- never let me down. The seven best, in no particular order, culture war stories of the past week:
LGBT TIMES 3
According to a flyer for inclusiveness training in Canada, the LGBT community- or more specifically, the letters- got an upgrade and now stands at 12 letters. The new moniker is now LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP. That stands for lesbian, gay, genderqueer, bisexual, demisexual, transgender, transsexual, twospirit, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual, allies, pansexual, and polyamorous. The little red squiggly lines are giving me vertigo!
And according to another flyer making the rounds in Canadian elementary schools, it claims that a study has found that 50%- as in fully half- the Canadian population identifies as something in that mish-mash of letters which means that only the other half identifies as being normal!
KEITH OLBERMAN RIDES OFF INTO THE SUNSET…MAYBE
The inconsequential former MSNBC talking head recently announced on his little-watched podcast filmed in a basement somewhere that because of “the resistance” Donald Trump’s days in the Oval Office are numbered as he will be impeached. Of course, it is Olberman’s commentary that is responsible for the downfall of Trump, according to Olberman. Declaring his job done given this inevitability, he signed off from his program promising no more politics for this talking football head.
It’s kind of sad because he is entertaining in a crazy kind of way. Then again, we still have Joy Behar and Gallagher.
WHO WILL BE TIME’S PERSON OF THE YEAR?
Now that Donald Trump has taken himself out of the running, Time magazine has confirmed that Trump was never, in fact, even considered this year. That has led to some speculation and some lobbying efforts. Some people are pushing the Sharia-loving, terrorism-tied leader of the Women’s March Linda Sarsour.
It would make sense since Time once named Hitler and twice named Stalin as their Person of the Year. Of course, we know how much blood both those terrorists have on their hands.
PEPE LePEW PUT ON NOTICE
New legislative efforts proposed by French President Emanuel Macron are designed to crack down on violence against women also include a monetary penalty for using a “gender-based insult.” Giving a speech for International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (I missed that celebration), he is taking no quarter. Some of the things slated for reform in the country known for seduction and romance:
- no more cat-calling;
- buses must stop at night to pick up a woman if she hails it down (bound to upset taxi drivers);
- extend the statute of limitations from 20 to 30 years for sex assault, which is kind of odd since…;
- France has no legally established age of consent (but Macron has suggested 14 or 15…ewwww.);
- no tolerance for sex-specific criticisms in government.
Thankfully, we have a First Amendment.
ONLINE LEFTIST RAG FINDS FOUR…COUNT ‘EM…FOUR REASONS FOR HILLARY TO RUN IN 2020
Salon recently found four “good reasons” for two-time loser Hillary Clinton to disprove the three times a charm theory of life. They list them as:
- Hillary Clinton is the Winston Churchill to Vladimir Putin’s Adolph Hitler- because Putin was soooo scared of Hillary;
- “Hillary Clinton being elected would monumentally piss off misogynist trolls…” Her election would likely piss off many people beyond misogynistic trolls;
- By convincingly winning the popular vote in 2016, she deserves to be the front runner in 2020- but yet again, we do not elect Presidents by the popular vote, so this means squat, and;
- We can expect her to be a good President- because, well…she’s Hillary.
Actually, Clinton is a two-time loser- once to a do-nothing Senator from Illinois and once to Donald Trump. If that isn’t the definition of “loser,” I don’t know what is.
In light of the failed “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia this past August that left one woman dead when some nut case ran his car into a crowd which the Left is now portraying as some senseless act of genocide, some facts are coming out that may not be to the liking of some on the Left, or even some of the self-flagellating writers here. According to a report by US Attorney Timothy Heaphy investigating the shenanigans, there is one huge, glaring conclusion: the police failed to do their jobs. The report states that the police chief told several officers: “Let them fight for a little, it will make it easier to declare an unlawful assembly.”
Of course, many of those of us who watched events unfold that day on television and in the aftermath had come to the same conclusions. While not excusing the actions or messages of the neo-Nazi goof-balls assembled, as our courts have repeatedly said, even they have a right to their abhorrent speech. When the police- an agent of government- fails to protect a fundamental right, one can expect violence. In this case, it looks like they set up that violence.
A UNIQUE CAMPAIGN MESSAGE ONE IS NOT SURE TO HEAR TOO OFTEN
Dana Nessel is a candidate for Michigan attorney general. In a recent campaign ad, she had this to say:
When you’re choosing Michigan’s next attorney general, ask yourself this: Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis? I’d say so.
One does not quite understand what Ms. Nessel means by this statement, but apparently it is a reference to politicians exposing their man-junk for some reason. I understand…she’s making a reference to the recent spate of sexual harassment allegations, but she makes a quantum leap here and seems to be accusing her male opponents of future penis exhibition because…well, they’re males and they have penises. Of course, this says nothing about the female attorney general who may expose her woman plumbing in a professional setting, but I digress. That’s right! Only males in power can be guilty of sexual escapades.
That’s it for this week. See you next week for another adventure and romp through the culture wars.
