Well, the crazies on the Left and their army of social justice warriors did not let us down. These are the seven wackiest, craziest, looniest stories your’s truly has compiled over the past couple of weeks presented in no particular order. Note: Some of these may be dated because the craziness comes fast and hard and this writer has to prioritize on a weekly basis.
WE HAVE A CHER SITING
Cher, the person on the poster for what can go wrong with Botox treatments, recently felt the need to tweet out something because she apparently felt the need. Said the aging and increasingly shriveled singing star:
REPUBLICANS BELIEVE THEY’VE GOT GOD GIVEN RIGHT 2 DICTATE WHAT WE DO WITH OUR BODIES.WOMEN MUST MAKE LAWS 2 CONTROL MENS BODIES. NO VIAGRA,ROGAIN, TESTOSTERONEALL MEN MUST BE CIRCUMCISED,& SHOW PAPERS OR PENIS 2 PROVE IT.MASSAGE PARLORS PUNISHABLE BY (death).MEN MUST TAKE THE (pill).
You know she’s serious because she used all caps.
Darnell Byrd McPherson is the mayor of Lamar, South Carolina: population 959. She awoke one day to find her car and that of her husband covered in a “yellow, sticky substance.” Of course, being black, she assumed that someone, probably a white supremacist, had vandalized the cars and she called the police. It was later determined that the yellow sticky substance was, in fact, pollen. It is believed that Darlington County officials sent samples to the state crime lab to determine if the pollen came from a racist plant.
Well if it isn’t cops shooting unarmed black people, now self-driving cars have come under scrutiny. Researchers at Georgia Tech have discovered that cars with state-of-the-art detection systems like sensors and cameras are better at detecting people with lighter skin tones. Researchers claim this makes it more likely that the Christines of the car industry are more likely to run over black people. Researchers at Volvo are working on a car that would be more likely to run over white people.
REVERSE CULTURAL APPROPRIATION
You’ve heard of reverse discrimination, but now we have an actual case of reverse cultural appropriation. Dartmouth University is sponsoring free ski trips including transportation, lift tickets, lessons and equipment for students. There is one catch: you must be a student of color. Skiing is an expensive sport and Dartmouth is an expensive college. It is good to see those student activity fees and tuition going to worthwhile events like this.
THIS ONE IS JUST GROSS
I believe someone here at Redstate had this article (or maybe not), but it bears repeating. Demetra Nyx (that’s her name, honestly) recently took to social media showing her face smeared with menstrual blood. Supposedly, doing this somehow empowers the sisterhood, according to Nyx. This writer will spare the reader the pictures posted online.
Paul Krugman is the bearded bard of Keynesian economics who writes columns for the New York Times, many of them dealing with anything but economics. In fact, he is a card-carrying socialist moonbat of the worst type who hides behind his Nobel Prize (in economics, which is about as important as the Nobel Peace Prize) to spout all sorts of nonsense. Recently, he dedicated an article in support of certifiable anti-Semite Ilhan Omar (D-Mogadishu). Surprisingly, in the same week, Ms. Omar received the support of former KKK honcho David Duke for her anti-Semitic remarks. Way to go Ilhan: you managed to unite Paul Krugman and David Duke. Perhaps, Ilhan Omar should be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
A performance group performed something called Hate Breed which was to protest racism, bigotry and stereotyping. The performance consisted of placing several white men in red MAGA hats, putting a collar and leash on them, then parading them up and down Hollywood Boulevard. At the end, they all assembled, still on their leashes and all fours, at Trump’s star on the Boulevard where they howled and gnashed their teeth. Two thoughts come to mind: (1) what self-respecting man allows himself to be leashed and paraded on a major street? and, (2) they say Trump supporters are crazy?
