Another week and more zaniness from the oddball assortment of human flesh that makes up the deranged social justice warriors on the Left.  Let’s see what words of wisdom they have to offer, shall we?

Jerk of the Week

We haven’t heard from this jerk in awhile, so it is only fitting that New York Times columnist Paul Krugman gets a shout out this week.  So, what got his knickers twisted?  The United States, Russia and Saudi Arabia (along with Kuwait, but they don’t count) objected to yet another junk science UN report on climate change.  Since Miami is underwater now and polar bears are extinct, Krugman dubbed these three countries the “new axis of evil.”  This confirms that Krugman is now a member of the axis of stupid.

Speaking of Climate Change Hysteria

It seems that MSNBC correspondent Katy Tur is having some kind of existential crisis.  Discussing an article she read in the New Yorker, she said:

I read that New Yorker article today and I thought gosh, how pointless is my life.  And how pointless are the decisions I make on a day-to-day basis when we are not focused on climate change every day, when it’s not leading every one of our newscasts.

This has led many people to wonder gosh, why is Katy Tur employed?

Batten Down the Hatches

A new Gallup poll shows that an estimated 158,000,000 people in the world want to immigrate to the United States.  That is sort of funny considering the Left tells us there are so many problems with the United States.  Regardless, that same poll tells us that more than half the population of such illustrious countries as Sierra Leone, Liberia, Haiti, Albania and El Salvador wish to leave their homeland paradise and come here.

Not Really Surprising

We all know that Al Sharpton has a serious problem with the English language.  Hence, it comes as no surprise that this mangler of English would repeatedly pronounce the word “homicide” as “homo-cide” on his own show.  Or maybe it was just a Freudian slip.  It is just too difficult to determine when Al Sharpton is considered.

Dog Accused of Racist Hate Crime

London Metropolitan Police have been busy documenting alleged incidents of hate crimes over the past two years.  Meanwhile, the city’s rape and knife attack rates have increased, but apparently they are trifle.  Among some of the documented hate crimes are:

  1. A man who said his daughter was discriminated against because calls went against her in a tennis match;
  2. Children who threw a ball over the fence of a minority homeowner, and;
  3. A dog who relieved himself on the sidewalk outside the apartment of a minority.

Equal Rights for Imaginary People

In Tolkien’s The Ring Trilogy, Orcs are mean, nasty, no-good, dirty rotten subhuman creatures used for cannon fodder.  Unknown sci-fi writer Andy Duncan seems to have a problem with this.  Duncan claims that by Tolkien, who is more famous in death than Duncan can ever hope to be while alive, is playing into the “racist” idea that some groups of people may be better than other groups of people.  He warns of the dire consequences for society.  Obviously, some sci-fi writers are better than other sci-fi writers disproving  the basis of Duncan’s thesis.

More PETA Thought Crimes

This has been previously covered on these pages, but it bears repeating: PETA members are deranged.  When not seeking to erect roadside memorials to dead lobsters, they are taking issue with certain phrases which they suggest should be banned.  Among them are:

  • Bring home the bacon (suggestion: Bring home the bagel);
  • Kill two birds with one stone (suggestion: throw one stone at two PETA members);
  • Put all your eggs in one basket (suggestion: put  three PETA members in a box and ship them to Antarctica);
  • Let the cat out of the bag (suggestion: Put a PETA member in a bag), and;
  • More than one way to skin a cat (suggestion: More than one way to skin a PETA member).

NOTE: This article does not endorse violence against any PETA member.  In fact, it is better that they just talk and make fools of themselves.  You gotta love that First Amendment…

That’s it for this week.  The culture wars series will be back next Monday instead of Tuesday since Christmas falls on Tuesday.  It will be a special edition dedicated to Left Wing social justice Christmas craziness.
