NPR goes full 1984

The official State radio station that we’re all forced to subsidize put out this little piece of Orwellian propaganda on its website:

“If you’ve stripped enough context away,” NPR chosen expert Jaime Settle said, “any piece of truth can become a piece of misinformation.”

Truth the regime doesn’t like is “misinformation.” These people have no shame in their lust for absolute power. The fact that millions of Americans cheer them on as they turn Twitter, Facebook, Google, etc. into their de facto “ministry of truth” is frightening.

Record low numbers for MLB all star game

MLB famously decided to move its midsummer classic from a majority black city to a majority white city to show how much it cares about black people. Except that makes no sense. The real reason was because their commissioner wanted to suck up to Democrat politicians.

Well they had record low viewership last night Hopefully they’ll get the message that acting as a propaganda outlet for one of the major political parties is not good for business. Or maybe, like the tech firms, they don’t care and will just double down so that the left wing press will tell them how great their sport is now that no one watches it anymore.

At least they seem to have dropped most of their COVID theater. For now. Let’s see what happens next time the politicians ratchet up their fear campaign.

The Left hates free speech

Check out these responses from the 2021 American College Student Survey:

If a professor says something that students find offensive, should that professor be reported to the university?

  • Liberal/Liberal Leaning: 85% Yes; 15% No.
  • Conservative/Conservative Leaning: 41% Yes; 59% No.

If a student says something that other students find offensive, should that student be reported to the university?

  • Liberal/Liberal Leaning: 76% Yes; 24% No.
  • Conservative/Conservative Leaning: 31% Yes; 69% No.

49% of respondents reported being “Liberal” (that word has lost its original meaning obviously) while 25% reported being conservative.

Universities are no longer about free expression or free inquiry. They’re indoctrination centers where students are told what to think.

Wealthy Democrat entertainers to receive millions in Federal loot

This is what happens when you give the most powerful government in history the ability to create money out of thin air. You get politicians handing out money to insanely wealthy supporters.

Hamilton will receive up to $50 million in coronavirus relief. This despite grossing $650 million before on Broadway alone. Broadway, in general, has gone along with all the insane Democrat lockdown policies. Now we know why. They were promised loot from the Feds to make up for it.

Remember this type of thing when your grocery bill keeps getting higher or it costs you $20 more to fill up your tank than this time last year.

Cops murder teenager in Arkansas

See the source image

We’ll have to wait and see what comes of this investigation, but it appears this may have been an instance of a cop being way too nervous about a routine traffic stop. So he killed a high school kid for the crime of exiting his vehicle which scared the officer. No word on what race the cop was.

Anyway, I believe now is when we’ll see the BLM protests, the condemnation from Biden and every other Democrat, the pearl clutching on MSNBC and CNN, and of course riots in every major city.

Oh wait, no. We’ll likely never hear about this again after today. This is just a “local story” after all. Maybe if you live in Little Rock the local Fox affiliate will follow up in a few months to let you know that the shooting was justified and the family of this kid will get a big settlement at taxpayer expense.

White people not allowed to participate in climate activism?

Apparently a New Zealand climate activism group with some loose link to Greta Thunberg has disbanded itself due to racism in its rank.

One of the major talking points on climate change, which will slowly take the place of COVID as the hysteria the media pushes to increase State power, is that it disproportionately affects people of color. Because as we must remember this most holy of national holidays that no one ever heard of until 2020, Juneteenth, EVERYTHING BAD DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTS PEOPLE OF COLOR, BUT SOMEHOW BENEFITS THE EVIL WHITE SUPREMACISTS!

This raises some interesting questions. Will white people be allowed to participate in climate activism moving forward? Are white people going to be told that they somehow benefit from climate change, but they need to fight against it, while letting the BLM types run all the protests and excluding them? Is that really going to be a winning argument in favor of draconian restrictions enforced by the government (still made up mostly of white people by the way) in the name of keeping the climate exactly how it is right now? Will the “science” still look all sciency when it’s wrapped in an anti-racism bow?

Can the State and its media propagandists keep track of all the contradictory lies they’re going to have to tell to move this thing forward?

New low in cowardice

This one is unfortunate. I’ve never watched The Bachelor so I don’t know anything about this guy Chris Harrison. What makes this so sad, is that he actually was doing a good thing. He was standing up for some poor girl who was having her life ruined because she attended a sorority ball that had a theme out of fashion with the coastal elites. And I understand it’s hard to stand up to the woke mob. When it seems the entire entertainment or media industry is arrayed against you, that has to rattle you.

But this is just pathetic:

I have spent the last few days listening to the pain my words have caused, and I am deeply remorseful. My ignorance did damage to my friends, colleagues and strangers alike. I have no one to blame but myself for what I said and the way I spoke. I set standards for myself, and have not met them. I feel that with every fiber in my being. Now, just as I taught my children to stand up, and to own their actions, I will do the same.

By excusing historical racism, I defended it. I invoked the term “woke police,” which is unacceptable. I am ashamed over how uninformed I was. I was so wrong.

To the Black community, to the BIPOC community: I am so sorry. My words were harmful. I am listening, and I truly apologize for my ignorance and pain it caused you. I want to give my heartfelt thanks to the people from these communities who I’ve had enlightening conversations with over the past few days, and I am so grateful to those who have reached out to help me on my path to anti-racism….

I am dedicated to getting educated on a more profound and productive level than ever before. I want to ensure our cast and crew members, to my friends colleagues and our fans: this is not just a moment, but a commitment to much greater understanding that I will actively make every day.

From here I can only try to evolve and be a better man, and I humble myself before all of you….

And of course, he got fired anyway. It’s easy for me to say since I’m an anonymous blogger with zero readers but never apologize. Your apology won’t be accepted by the people trying to destroy you and you’ll lose all your potential defenders.

Are all riots equal?

I have a hard time wrapping my head around someone who claims to be libertarian and gets outraged at citizens storming the capitol building while excusing or downplaying rioters burning and looting businesses.

I don’t condone violence and I think what happened yesterday in Washington is likely to be counterproductive toward any advance of liberty in this country. However, if you are upset with the State (which is aggressive by its very nature), it’s at least “less bad” morally to attack a State facility than it is to burn down a restaurant or gas station. You’re going after the actual aggressor not just lashing out at innocent bystanders.

Let’s also not forget that while they invaded “the People’s House” and disrupted a session of Congress, they did very little damage and the only person killed was one of the unarmed MAGA protesters who was shot by a police officer. So the selective outrage over this particular “violence” is somewhat hypocritical, to say the least after what we saw over the summer in cities around the country.

And I certainly don’t feel bad for the Congressmen and their staffers who were scared, poor babies. 99% of them are evil sociopaths who routinely vote to condone violence and tyranny around the world. They deserve a little discomfort. I feel much more sympathy for a small business owner who saw his life’s work go up in flames.

Backlash against tyranny

I’m not exactly trying to justify the storming of the Capitol Building because I think it’s counterproductive and I don’t actually support it. The State will use it to further punish dissent.

But it’s worth understanding why it happened.

The number one issue is the lockdowns. In their never-ending lust for power, the ruling elite in this country has stripped millions of people of their livelihoods, their friends, their extended families, and any other outlet to focus their energy on (sports, entertainment, church, etc.) People have become isolated and super focused on politics. Many in DC right now probably think they have nothing to lose and (mistakenly) believe Trump is their only hope. All this to unsuccessfully fight a disease that mainly affects the sick and elderly. Some kind of blowback from this disastrous policy was inevitable.

People have lost faith in our elections. In the name of fighting COVID most states completely overhauled the way their citizens can vote. Millions of more ballots were cast than ever before, most through the mail. This was ripe for abuse and fraud and half the country, rightly or wrongly believe this election was stolen.

The Deep State has been trying to undermine Trump since before his inauguration. They accused him of being a Russian agent based on lies, locked up many of his trusted allies, and even impeached him for a phone call where he asked for an investigation of someone who was already being investigated. His supporters obviously don’t feel their choice for President was ever given an opportunity to govern.

The Media, Democrat party (or do I repeat myself) and Hollywood has spent the last 5 years telling half the country that they’re stupid, racist, deplorables because they didn’t support the policies preferred by our ruling class. Not exactly a message intended to bring unity.

And finally, the Media, Democrats, and Hollywood all celebrated left-wing violence throughout the summer in the name of fighting racism. They shamed and in some cases prosecuted people who tried to protect themselves. If you support one mob, don’t be surprised when another mob forms to fight back.

Democrats are the new conservatives

Think about it. Their president is 78 and has been in government since the Vietnam era. Their Speaker of the House is even older. They’re on the same side as the entire establishment media and every major corporation on every single issue. They support the American Empire and want the US military to be able to intervene in any conflict anywhere on the planet. They accuse their political enemies of being Russian agents. They love the status quo on everything and get wildly offended if you question any of the current cultural orthodoxies. They want to continue the policy of mass subsidized immigration.

And look at people that are supposed “conservatives”. Do they really want to conserve anything going on right now? They want less spending. Spending hasn’t declined in the lifetime of any living person. They’re against foreign aid and overseas aggressive wars. The US has been increasing foreign aid and waging aggressive wars since World War II. They want friendly relations with Russia. They hate the current culture and want to radically alter it. They want less immigration. Immigration has been increasing for the last 50 years.
