PETA Petitioned To Memorialize Lobsters

                 PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) recently placed a billboard near the site of a June truck crash in Delaware to “pay tribute to the chickens who were killed or grievously injured” in the accident.  The billboard sported an image of a chicken’s head along with the words “I’m ME, Not MEAT. See the Individual. Go Vegan.” The organization did so in the hopes of convincing passers-by that “we can all prevent animals’ suffering and death by choosing vegan foods.”
                Shortly thereafter, the group erected another billboard, this one in Maryland, encouraging people to “go vegan” and stop eating crabs.
                And now, its lobsters. On August 29th PETA asked Maine officials for permission to build a large grave to mark the site of a truck crash that resulted in thousands of the giant crustaceans spilling out onto a highway. It wants to memorialize the “countless sensitive crustaceans” who lost their lives due to the August 22nd accident near Brunswick. The gravesite would “remind everyone that the best way to prevent such tragedies is to go vegan.” The gravestone would feature a lobster paired with the words, “In Memory of the Lobsters Who Suffered and Died at This Spot.”
                Why not, “In Loving Memory…?”
                Incredibly, Maine’s Department of Transportation is reviewing PETA’s request for the prospective memorial to be located on Route 1. The cost of the proposed memorial is unknown.
                To date, PETA has not proposed any billboards memorializing the countless billions of animals torn apart and eaten by other animals, whether in the oceans, on land, or in the air.
                What’s next? Will PETA try to shut down Orkin? Demand billboards and gravesites be erected to memorialize the tragic death of rats, ants, ticks, leeches, lampreys and mosquitoes? If not, why?
                You know-- for certain-- a society is doomed when it subsidizes countless millions of human abortions and calls it “health care for women,” while agonizing, apologizing, and memorializing the death of a few thousand crustaceans. If a chicken is “ME, not MEAT,” why is a human baby deemed just a “fetus” to be unceremoniously disposed of at the behest of its parent(s)?

                (I am happy to report the state of Maine has subsequently denied this absurd request).

CNN's Don Lemon On Antifa: "No Organization's Perfect"

                CNN’s Don Lemon recently offered up several sentences so preposterous and convoluted that they are as laughable as they are pathetic……to a sentient person. On Tuesday, August 28, he said of Antifa on his show “CNN Tonight”: “It says it right in the name: Antifa. Anti-fascism, which is what they were there (in Charlottesville) fighting.”
                Antifa was in Charlottesville fighting anti-fascism, Don? I’d say that perhaps your Freudian slip is showing, but you are so completely held hostage by ideological (or ideoillogical) zealotry and hatred that simply can’t be the case. As for “It says it right in the name,” what, is he six-years-old? Ever heard of “The People’s Republic of China,” Don? “The Democratic Republic of Korea”? Neither entity is a republic or a democracy, and both treat their “people” like livestock. Your skepticism and jadedness disappears when talking of Antifa?
                Lemon then said: “Listen, no organization’s perfect. There was some violence. No one condones violence, but there were different reasons for Antifa and for these neo-Nazis to be there. One, racists, fascists, the other group, fighting racist fascists. There is a distinction there.” If there is a distinction there, and that is doubtful, it is a distinction without a difference. “No organization is perfect”?! What about the Communist Party of America? Planned Parenthood? The North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA)? MS-13? ISIS?

   What an ignorant asshole.  

                I don’t like saying that in this time of needlessly heightened racial tension, because Lemon happens to be black. I’d rather say it about Joy Behar, Al Gore, Rosie O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow……and I have. So, here was what legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin (white), appearing on CNN’s The Situation Room, had to say about those that oppose Antifa: “Let’s be clear also about what’s going on here. The theme here is, ‘I’m Donald Trump and I’ll protect you from the scary black people.’” Toobin then rambled on, referencing LeBron James, Maxine Waters, NFL players, UCLA basketball players, and Don Lemon himself, before declaring “This is about black versus white.” Yep, the science is settled. Very helpful, Jeff. What an ignorant asshole.
                The viciously crude and imbecilic website Splinter, that frequently uses profanity in its “news” headlines, mocked Fox News and conservative politicians for disdaining disorder and the destruction of property, “the two things they hate the most.” Splinter then termed Lemon’s comments “pretty mild and rational,” while deeming Toobin’s analysis to be “mostly correct and certainly well argued!”
                Well, you can’t argue with that. Or Antifa might set your car on fire.

                (Hat-tip to Rick Moran/American Thinker for the Splinter commentary).

Fake Is The New Real

                Recently, Missouri became the first state in the nation to ban food makers from using the word “meat” to refer to, well, things that are not meat. The law is aimed at “non-traditional” meat products such as those derived from soy, tempeh and seitan. These have been known as “plant-based meats.” (Is there such a thing as “meat-based plants?”). The law also addresses lab-grown meat, made of cultured animal tissue cells, and forbids the misrepresentation of “a product as meat that is not derived from harvested production livestock or poultry.” 
                Not everyone is happy with the new law. Recently, the company that makes “Tofurky” filed an injunction in a Missouri federal court to prevent enforcement of the statute, claiming that preventing manufacturers from using the word is a violation of their First Amendment rights. Tofurky’s main ingredient is, of course, tofu.
                Tofurky CEO Jaime Athos released a statement about the suit: “I have always envisioned Tofurky serving a greater purpose beyond the plate, acting as an engine for global change. Using our privately-held position to extinguish threats to legal definitions of terms like ‘meat,’ is one way we can further our mission to help reduce global dependence on animal agriculture; therefore, improving environmental sustainability, animal welfare and human health.”
                Someone’s full of themselves. Possibly Tofurky, as well. And definitely bullshit. Though probably not from any production livestock. Maybe it’s artificial bullshit. “Tofushit?”

                But wait, there’s more. This post is a twofer.

                In a seemingly unrelated story, Toronto will soon sport a brothel featuring high-tech sex dolls made of silicone. It will be the first of its kind on the North American continent, following the hugely successful openings of similar establishments throughout Asia and Europe. Yes, “Aura Dolls” will be opening, so to speak, in a “strip” mall in September. Its website touts the “world’s most beautiful silicone ladies.” Specifically, there will be six of them available, including a Korean named Yuki, a Columbian name Jazmine, and an American named Scarlett. Frankly, I don’t give a damn. Where’s the transgender named Pat?
                The establishment’s proprietors say that people are welcoming the idea and “seem really excited to try it.” They encourage patrons to use protection, because, though the “prostitutes” are artificial, “there’s still a chance of getting any sexual disease.” Not from the silicone form itself, but from those enjoying it before you. Or, as Prince phrased it his song Little Red Corvette: “Cause I felt a little ill when I saw all those pictures of the jockeys that were there before me.”
                What do these two stories have in common? In both cases the flesh is fake. Fake meat, fake women. We are getting far too comfortable with fake things. Artificial intelligence. Fake sympathy…… otherwise known as virtue-signaling. Fake news.

                Our increasing appetite for fake things……is a real problem.

A Prelude To Tyranny

            CNS News reports that the majority of Americans under 18 years of age, 52.1% to be exact, live in households that take “means-tested assistance” from the government. According to the most current data from the Census Bureau, there were 73,586,000 people under the age of 18 residing in the United States, and 38,365,000 of them lived in households in which one or more persons received benefits from a means-tested government program.
That would help explain why so many Millennials purport to be fans of socialism. Said programs included the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (“SNAP”- food stamps), Medicaid, public housing, Supplemental Security Income, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and children, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and the National School Lunch Program. Even when the school lunch program is excluded from the calculations, the percentage of those under 18 living in a household still suckling on the government’s teat(s) is higher than in any other age group. People 75 and older were least likely to receive assistance, with only 18.8 percent accepting other’s largess. Not surprising. They survived the Great Depression, fought—and won-- World War II, and returned home to contribute to a time of peace and prosperity. They believed in “pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps,” a phrase that would be roundly mocked today.
Just 20 years ago, “only” 36.9 percent of Americans under 18 lived in households receiving means-tested assistance. In 2008, that figure broke 40% for the first time. In 2013, it surpassed 50 percent, thanks to Obama administration policies.
Obviously, people living in intact families are much less likely than those in broken or non-traditional families to rely on governmental assistance, yet even 29.4% of households headed by married couples in 2016 received means-tested government assistance.
An astounding 81.8 percent of children under 6 years old living with a single mom were in households on means-tested assistance. The federal government so detests fathers and their tendency to instill notions of independence and responsibility in their children, thereby challenging its indispensability and supremacy, that it actually makes it more lucrative and less punitive for women to have kids without a man hanging around.
America has changed rapidly in the past few decades. It will change ever-more rapidly in the coming years, as leftists import a new voting bloc at the expense of the “deplorables” in fly-over country that continue to cling to “their guns and religion.”
The insane march towards socialism will continue unabated. And it will end the way it has always ended. With the equal sharing of misery.

And the unequal application of tyranny.

Trans Community Adopts Lobster Emoji

                The Portland Press Herald reports that British transgender activists have claimed the lobster as their official, if temporary, emoji. The group Lobsters Against Transphobia (annual membership dues only $69!) has petitioned Unicode for a pink-and-blue flag emoji, but is using the large crustacean as a capable stand in.
                The paper says the group picked lobsters because they can be gynandromorphs, creatures that display both male and female characteristics. (Well, that could certainly speed up the dating process)! The group avers that “Emojis are a way for the world to connect and trans people shouldn’t be left out of the conversation.” It’s good to see them finally coming out of their shells, isn’t it?
                Many trans persons, advocates and allies have added the lobster emoji to their Twitter handles and are collectively using the banner “#ClawsOutForTrans.” Some have dressed up as lobsters for Trans Pride parades.
                It is irrefutable that there has been a sea-change in Western culture recently. Special interest groups have taken on a crab mentality towards those in the majority, putting them between a rock and a hard place. Either they accept whatever behavior and identity is projected and touted or they will be considered bigots and some version of a “phobe.” 
                Tres Chic Marxist morons and their advocates had the world’s first emoji: Che Guevara t-shirts. But, must every identity group have its own emoji now? Should pansexuals claim the rabbit as their emoji? Should heterosexuals that intend to mate for life rally around a swan emoji? Low-testosterone men could rally around a Michael Moore emoji.
                Hopefully, trans folks won’t start turning red and emitting loud shrieking sounds when taking a hot bath.

Harvard Vs. Asians

                An Asian-American group sued Harvard University in 2014 for discriminatory admissions policies that they claim have targeted Asian students for decades. The group demanded the public release of admissions data on hundreds of thousands of applicants, saying the records show a clear pattern of discrimination “going back decades,” according to The New York Times. The group was able to view the documents due to its lawsuit and said in a letter to the court recently that the documents were so compelling there was no need for a trial and they would ask the judge to rule summarily in their favor based on the documents alone. In addition, the plaintiffs said that the public had a right to see the evidence the judge would consider, noting that the federal government directs more than half a billion dollars of taxpayer money into Harvard every year.
                Remarkably, Harvard countered that the documents “were tantamount to trade secrets,” The Times reported. “Trade secrets?!” That begs the question: WTF??!! It’s not like the school is protecting the colonel’s secret recipe or the identity of President Trump’s personal hair stylist. This kind of obfuscating nonsense and self-importance should be met with the utter disdain it richly deserves. This kind of legerdemain should make all Harvard official’s faces Crimson.
                Yet, a cabal of university presidents and professors told the U.S. District Court in Boston: “In a nation that is more connected and racially and ethnically diverse than ever,” a ruling in favor of the Asian-American plaintiffs “would deprive many students of the critical benefits of campus diversity and thus the education they will need as citizens and leaders in the 21st Century, according to The College Fix. Well, it would certainly deprive Asian-American students of the benefits and education.
                The American Association of University Professors, the American Council on Education, and numerous other groups filed a friend-of-the-court brief siding with Harvard, even though the school’s own data show that its practice of considering race in admissions has functionally capped Asian-American enrollment for at least the past decade, even as the Asian-American population has grown substantially.
                Virtually all of the other Ivy League schools filed a separate brief arguing that a race-neutral admissions policy “would make non-white students at these institutions feel more marginalized,” according to The Fix. Do they think Martin Luther King would approve of the color of one’s skin being used as a determining factor in college admissions? Progressivism is regressive. Classical liberalism is progressive.
                The College Fix summed up the sad, sad situation by stating that presidents and professors told a federal court overseeing an Asian-discrimination lawsuit against Harvard University that “Requiring colleges and universities to evaluate applicants without regard to their race is an attack on education itself.” Stupefying.
                That belief is an attack on education itself. It is also an assault on the capabilities of non-white students, equality under the law, and on logic and reason.
                The core values of institutions of higher learning have been perverted, their core mission inverted. Instead of exposing and expanding minds, they now shield and protect narrow-mindedness from contradiction and controversy. What was open is now closed.
                If merit is meaningless, and the color of one’s skin is paramount in deciding who gets favored treatment, “progressives” will have effectively—ironically?-- repealed The Emancipation Proclamation.

Judge Says Underaged Illegal Aliens Cannot Be Refused Abortions

                Earlier this year, a federal judge in the District of Columbia preposterously ruled that the Trump administration cannot prevent abortion services to young, illegal immigrants.
                Recently, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R) joined with the attorneys general of 10 other states to defend the federal government’s right to refuse abortions for underage illegal immigrants. The 11 AGs filed a “friend-of-the-court brief” (amici curiae) declaring support for a federal policy that prevents the government from facilitating abortions for unaccompanied juveniles who have crossed the border illegally. Morrisey issued a news release stating, “The lower court ruling not only erodes the meaning of the U.S. Constitution but encourages more foreign youth to enter America illegally under the promise of such procedures.”
                The Constitution, of course, can only apply to American citizens. It was the utterly unique document designed to protect residents of the United States from arbitrary harm by their government. It can no more apply to citizens of other sovereign nations than the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of the Congo can hold sway over American citizens.
                If a person enters—or attempts to enter—the United States illegally, he or she is a criminal. By definition. Period. If a person tries to enter the U.S. illegally to avail themselves of “services” that are illegal in their home country, such as abortion, the U.S. has no obligation to that person whatsoever.
                But, of course, pro-abortion activists are accusing the government of violating the “rights” of those coming to the U.S. to kill their unborn child.
                The federal district’s court ruling would grant illegal immigrants the “right” to purely elective abortions not medically necessary.
                Prior to this ruling, no court had ever recognized such broad rights for illegal immigrants with “virtually no connections to this country,” according to The Record. Morrisey told The Record: “It is crucial that our country not grant unlawfully present, underage immigrants the same rights given to U.S. citizens under the Constitution.” He added, “The lower court ruling dangerously blurs the lines that were distinctly drawn out by our nation’s founding fathers. If the ruling is left intact, it will encourage more underage youth to illegally enter the country in hopes of similar treatment.” Duh.
            How degraded does society have to be to believe that underage criminal aliens should have the “right” to abort their babies in whatever country they choose to emigrate to? What’s next on the progressive hit list? What about those who want to come to the United States illegally and rape or kill Americans? How can we morally turn them away? Oh, that’s right, we don’t. Thanks Democrats! What of those poor souls who wish to sneak into the U.S. to engage in sex-trafficking? Cannibalism? Fracking? Okay, now we’ve gone too far…that’s sick.
                The self-same people who are berserk with anger over young illegal immigrant kids being separated from their parents when attempting to cross the border are aghast that illegal immigrant kids attempting to cross the border may not have access to unfettered abortion.
                You can’t make it up.
  No sane person would want to.

Pearl Jam Poster: Burning Down The (White) House

                On August 24th, 1814, the British burned down the White House in Washington, D.C. It was rebuilt by 1818 and has stood tall and proud, a beacon of representative government, ever since.
                Recently, however, various entities have considered blowing up The People’s House. It’s not that they detest the large alabaster abode itself, it’s that they harbor hatred for its occupant…and/or the United States of America.
                Madonna, sporting a black “pussy hat,” admitted at the Women’s March on Washington in January of 2017 that she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” (No hate speech there)!
                Just a few weeks ago, General Qassem Soleimani, who has commanded Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) “extra-territorial” special forces unit, the Qods Force, posted an Instagram graphic of himself using a walkie-talkie in front of the White House as it explodes. The picture was accompanied by text stating: “We will crush the USA under our feet.” (Also, apparently, according to Instagram, NOT HATE SPEECH)! Soleimani has been designated by the United States government for connections to a plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. in 2011 and for human rights abuses in Syria that same year in his role as IRGC-QF commander.
                And, even more recently, the rock band Pearl Jam put out a poster for a “get out the vote” concert for Democratic Senator Jon Tester depicting a burning White House, replete with an eagle tearing into the prostrated corpse of President Trump. Hate speech? Of course not! The term “hate speech” is reserved for Trump calling someone “a dog,” or a person saying, “All Lives Matter,” silly.
                Jeff Ament, Pearl Jam’s bassist, released an emailed statement to the Associated Press reading: “The role of the artist is to make people think and feel, and the current administration has us thinking and feeling.” In that case, dumbass, you’ve just admitted President Trump is an “artist.” He added, “I was the sole conceptualist of this poster, and I welcome all interpretations and discourse,” signing it, “Love, from the First Amendment, Jeff Ament.”
                The poster also shows Trump appearing to reach for a briefcase with a hammer and sickle on it, the implication being that, if he had lived, he would have tried his best to……what?
                Mr. Ament, since you went to the trouble of soliciting feedback, here is my interpretation of your poster: It is a classless, hypocritical advertisement created by a spoiled, ignorant, virtue-signaling hack adrift in a vast sea of fragile—and meaningless-- self-importance. “Love, from the First Amendment!”
                So, there you have it. Madonna and Pearl Jam have voluntarily joined the ranks of ancient monarchs, modern mullahs-- and assorted other dictators and thugs-- in attacking the White House, the president and the United States.

                And the band plays on.

San Francisco Full Of Crap

            San Francisco is full of crap.

 Literally as well as figuratively. Its leftist ruler’s shitty ideas have led to an epidemic of homeless people treating its streets and sidewalks as if they comprised one giant all-gender bathroom. The City by the Bay has finally been moved to act after its residents registered tens of thousands of complaints about the staggering amount of feces strewn about downtown areas. Enter “The Poop Patrol.” This squad will consist of five staffers and a supervisor who will each don protective gear and scour “brown zones” in search of human excrement. The team will be provided with a special vehicle replete with a steam cleaner and disinfectant. Talk about your shitty jobs.
But maybe not. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that each member of this elite unit will cost The Golden City $184,678 in salary and benefits. Frisco’s mayor, London Breed (!), acknowledged the cost, saying: “We’re spending a lot of money to address this problem.”
The city already spends $12 million a year tidying up homeless encampments, $2.8 million a year for a crew to wash down these camps and remove any biohazards, $3.1 million annually for portable toilets, well over $1 million per annum for the provision and cleanup of needles used by illegal drug addicts, and, well, you get the idea.
And now, $830,977-a-year for the new “Poop Patrol” to “actively hunt down and clean up human waste.” The Chronicle blithely noted, “the poop patrollers earn $71,760 a year, which swells to $184,678 with mandated benefits.”
To which one can only reply, “no shit?”

NARAL Markets "Rocky Roe v. Wade" Ice Cream

                We all scream for ice-cream, but this is ridiculous. Sick, actually. Beyond belief. The National Abortion Rights Action League’s (NARAL) Oregon chapter has partnered with local ice cream shop What’s the Scoop? to market a new flavor called “Rocky Roe v. Wade.” Half of all the sales proceeds will go to NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon. Custom flavors made exclusively for pro-abortion groups? What’s next? On second thought, I don’t want to know.
                Abortion is a life-ending procedure for the baby of course, and often a life-changing one for the mother. If it doesn’t leave physical scars it often leaves mental and emotional ones. There are various forms of abortion. Here is the clinical description of one of them, dilation and curettage: “similar to a suction procedure except a curette, a loop-shaped steel knife is inserted into the uterus. The baby and placenta are cut into pieces and scraped out into a basin. Bleeding is usually very heavy with this method.”
                Yet pro-choice groups think of abortion only as a “medical procedure.”

                NARAL thinks it’s an ice cream flavor.

                Progressives like representative government only—and only—if it represents them, at the expense of everybody else. To leftists, the ends justify the means. If others, even innocents, have to die for their convenience, so be it.
                Leftists do not debate, they attack and smear. The only thing they truly fear is the truth. The only way they can ever be defeated is by courageous people speaking truth and refusing—no matter what—to back down. Period.
                What’s next? If we continue going down the Rocky Road we are currently traveling, folks will soon be gleefully imbibing many more flavors of ice cream. “Chocolate marshfellow,” “French guerrilla,” “(Dead) Neopolitan,” “Cookies and scream,” “Popped cherry,” “Bum raisin,” and “Nooky dough” will be hawked by various identity groups.
                Gag me. With a curette.
                We all scream for ice-cream.
    But none of us should be able to contemplate, let alone eat, “Rocky Roe v. Wade” without vomiting.

PETA Frees Animal Images

                 PETA (People for Extremist Thought and Action) has convinced Nabisco to change the depiction of the cartoon animals on its iconic boxes of “Barnum’s Animal’s” animal crackers. For the past 116 years or so, the boxes showed lions, polar bears, gorillas and elephants, etc., behind the bars of a circus boxcar. PETA had long campaigned against the use of animals in circuses with great success. Circuses themselves are now virtually extinct. So, flush with victory and feeling its oats, PETA wrote a letter to Nabisco’s parent company, Mondelez International, stating: “Given the egregious cruelty inherent in circuses that use animals and the public’s swelling opposition to the exploitation of animals used for entertainment, we urge Nabisco to update its packaging in order to show animals who are free to roam in their natural habitats,” according to the New York Post.
                The company acquiesced as quickly as a Senate Republican. Jason Levine, Mondelez’s chief marketing officer for North America, released a statement reading: "When PETA reached out about Barnum’s, we saw this as another great opportunity to continue to keep this brand modern and contemporary.” Translation: “We may have caved to those assholes, but what a great opportunity for virtue-signaling!”
                Cue “Born Free.” Elsa would be proud. Joy Adamson, too. Two-dimensional drawings of animals on cardboard boxes have been “freed” at last. Thank God A’mighty!
                This is a good first step towards emancipating animal images, but there is so much more to do. What about the Energizer Bunny? Eveready forces him (her? they?) to walk around endlessly, banging on a large drum until such time as he (her? they?) or the sun expires.
                R.J. Reynolds has used a camel to promote its most popular brand of cigarettes for decades. Cigarettes! That’s sick. As if the “ship of the desert” could traverse the planet’s vast nether-regions without water…as long as it had a hefty supply of heaters.
                And the list goes on. Ralph Lauren has long utilized a polo horse in its apparel advertisements. One-percenters harnessing a noble beast for a competition almost exclusively engaged in by white men?! Egads!! The Playboy Bunny? #MeToo!
                The Geico gecko, LaCoste’s crocodile, Metro Goldwyn Mayer’s lion, Red Bull, Puma, etc., etc. Where does it stop? And what about sports teams? The Chicago Bears, the Detroit Lions, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Wisconsin Badgers. The list goes on and on. The Miami Dolphins stuck a helmet on their poor aquatic mascot’s “head”-- and put the image on its player’s helmets. How degrading!
                Surely, we can all agree that we have no right to use the images, depictions or outlines of animals for our own amusement. That is faunal appropriation.
And that is inappropriate.

Paris: City Of Rats

                Rats are crawling all over Paris. And under Paris. According to a report in the Wall St. Journal, they are turning up in supermarkets, parks and nurseries…and almost everywhere else. One rat control expert recently estimated that there are 4 million rats residing in the City of Light, far eclipsing the number of human residents.
                City officials say that underground construction projects, the rising of the Seine river, and improper disposal of rubbish are causing more and more rats to dwell above ground. Most of the rats are wild, but some were likely raised as pets and released while others may have escaped from laboratories. The officials convened a meeting last fall to discuss ways to reduce the population. At which time ten protesters strode forth, denouncing plans to poison and trap the vermin as needless forms of unusual cruelty. Their suggestion? Deploy birth-control drugs on the randy rodents. Yes, that’s correct, we’ve “advanced” to the point where taxpayers are expected to pay for birth control for rats, now. I’m certain that program would be a model of precise execution and efficiency. Would city employees drop off hundreds of thousands of tiny condoms, diaphragms and educational videos around likely breeding areas?
                This past January, a Paris trash collector video recorded hundreds of rats swarming around in a large garbage container. One of the rodents leapt at him. The video went viral. The sanitary engineer remarks in the recording: “It can’t go on like this. It’s a huge plague.” That should have gotten people’s attention.
                Flea-infested rats nearly eviscerated Europe in the Middle Ages by way of The Plague. The creatures invaded pantries and destroyed crops, and nearly 60% of the its population died as a result. On a continent steeped in history, one would think everyone would error on the side of self-preservation. One would be wrong.
                The city apparently has numerous pro-rat activists who believe rats have the same right to inhabit the city as any other mammal. They started an online petition to save the rats. It garnered nearly 26,000 signatures.
                The Wall Street Journal article cited the retired psychologist who created the petition. She said, “we are very disturbed,” adding that rights for rats are only seen as abnormal “because others are able to live among the banality of such cruelty.” She should have stopped at “we are very disturbed.” That would’ve been accurate. “Others are able to live among the banality of such cruelty?” You know she would never say the same thing about abortion, thus proving the cruelty of her banality.
                There exists a French Facebook group called “Rat-Prochement: Save the Rats.” It boasts 600 members…who take in “homeless rats.” Its founder says, “We really need to find a balance to live together.” Or die together. Her rats live in cages, but take turns roaming around her apartment. She and other activists dismiss unease with the rodents as a form of “rat phobia” and see themselves as part of a “resistance” movement.
                It was not so long ago that many French people took part in a truly heroic resistance movement. Rapprochement was wrong then. Rat-Prochement is wrong now. You’ve heard the expression “like rats abandoning a sinking ship.” Europe is turning that phrase on its head. If leftist policy prescriptions and sentiments continue to prevail in Europe, in all matters, great and small, rats will eventually be the only ones left aboard that ship of state.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Campaign Bans Media From Event

                Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently returned to her district after a cross-country campaign tour during which she was treated like a rock star.
                And promptly banned the press from attending a community event in Corona, New York.
                The decision to bar members of the media from the affair highlights the hypocrisy of both leftist politicians and the media itself. The shallow, silly socialist’s spokesman, Corbin Trent, stated: “We wanted to help create a space where community members felt comfortable and open to express themselves without the distraction of cameras and press.”
                I’m certain that some in the Trump administration feel the same way, as do many of his supporters. But the Fourth Estate fawns all over Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, whereas they stop just short of attempting to tar and feather the president-- and his supporters. This explains why the mainstream media didn’t savage Ms. O.C. like they would have if a Republican had done the same thing, preferring instead to give the young lass a pass.
                Trent added, “These were the first set of events where the press has been excluded. This is an outlier and will not be the norm. We’re still adjusting our logistics to fit Alexandria’s national profile.”
                Banning the press is “adjusting your logistics?” (To fit the national profile of a community organizer from the state of New York’s 14th Congressional district)? I looked up definitions of “logistics”: 1) “the aspect of military science dealing with the procurement, maintenance, and transportation of military materiel, facilities, and personnel.” No, Ocasio-Cortez isn’t big on guns or the (U.S.) military. 2) “the commercial activity of transporting goods to customers.” Definitely not! Can’t think of a woman as a “good,” to be “transported to customers!” #MeToo. And 3) “the handling of the details of an operation,” as in “the logistics of a political campaign.” That’s it!
                Operation Ban the Media won’t harm Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign, because members of the press won’t hold her accountable. They are too busy attacking Trump for holding them accountable. One would hope the voters would hold her accountable for her stupefying naiveté and ignorance of the issues.
                One would likely be disappointed.

Beer Deliverymen Prevent Suicide

                For Kwame Anderson and Jason Gaebel, it wasn’t just another workday. The two are beer deliverymen who drive a semi-truck around the Twin Cities area servicing their route. Recently, after taking a wrong turn, they spotted a man clinging to the opposite side of a chain-link fence on a tall bridge over I-94 in St. Paul. As they approached the man, Gaebel, who was driving, asked him: “Bro, you all right?” and added “Come on this side, bro.” To which the man replied, “I am going to commit suicide. Watch me fly.”
                At this point, Anderson called 911 and got out to try to coax him off the ledge. He later told KMSP-TV, “I’m thinking it’s either I help this guy or he’s going to jump,” and “I gotta keep this guy entertained somehow because if I wait for the police, things could be over.” Anderson talked to the man for an hour straight, discovering that his name was Leroy, he lived just four blocks away and he had children. Anderson offered the man food and money, but those offers were refused. Finally, Anderson said, “Do you want to have a drink with me?” The man paused, so Anderson added, “Yeah? A beer?” The would-be jumper said “Maybe.” Progress.
                Anderson ran back to the truck and grabbed a 12-pack of Coors Light, opened it, and lured Leroy to a safe area. Leroy was transported to the hospital by emergency personnel.
                Gaebel told KARE11-TV: “I don’t know why I did this. I take a left and I go toward the bridge but usually we always go straight. We have a route that we do every Wednesday and that wasn’t the way I would normally go. It wasn’t part of the plan, but it was God’s plan.”
                Anderson agreed, but added that it wasn’t just the Lord’s will that kept the man from jumping, stating: “Coors Light saves lives.”
                Coors Light is marketed as “The Silver Bullet,” due in part to the silver cans in which it’s packaged.
                One of the definitions of “silver bullet” is: “A simple and seemingly magical solution to a complicated problem.”

                The Lord works in mysterious ways.

                 I’ll drink to that.

                Here’s to Gaebel and Anderson!

Norway To Hand Out Free Heroine

                The government of Norway has announced that it will start handing out free heroine to those of its citizens most severely addicted to the powerful and life-threatening drug. The trial program is set to begin in 2020. Participants will be provided with diamorphine, an injectable form of heroine, and will be required to adhere to a monitoring schedule. The Scandinavian nation has one of the highest levels of drug overdose rates in Europe, and already has government-monitored safe rooms where users can inject their own drugs.
                Norway’s Health Minister, Bente Hoie, took to Facebook to explain: “We hope that this will provide a solution that will give…a better quality of life to some addicts who are today out of our reach and whom current programs do not help enough.”
                Methadone has been the most commonly used “medication” prescribed to heroin addicts, with the goal of weaning users off of the “street drug,” but diamorphine is, apparently, a viable alternative, at a cost of roughly $22,000 per year for each user.
                Is dispensing free drugs to hard-core addicts really good public policy? Is it something the government should be directing……at taxpayer expense? Why is it that progressive types seem to be heartily in favor of these policies for heroine addicts, cocaine aficionados and those who marinate every cell of their bodies in the mind-altering substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by smoking/inhaling/ingesting marijuana-infused products, while often denigrating and dismissing those who have a similar affinity for alcohol? Where are the government programs to deliver free Boone’s Farm wine or Old Milwaukee beer to those in need? It wouldn’t even cost the government $22,000 a year to provide most alcoholics with the “medicine” they need.
Hell, in my case, $2,200 a year would suffice. Where’s the equality, where’s the inclusiveness, where’s the diversity?

Where’s the logic?

Where’s my beer?

The Los Angeles Times Trumps The Boston Globe

    Nearly 350 newspapers around the United States took part in a massive group protest of President Trump on August 16th by publishing Trump-bashing editorials comically purporting to defend free speech and freedom of the press. This, they claimed, was in response to Trump lambasting “fake news” and calling the press “the enemy of the people.” Yet, they themselves have been attacking Trump since the day he took office, rigorously hiding anything that reflects positively on him while endlessly savaging him for things he may or may not have done years before he took office. And everything he’s done since then. And for any other slight, real or imagined. And for his diet, weight, hair, etc., etc., ad infinitum.
                The Boston Globe was the instigator of this mass tantrum, coercively encouraging every newspaper in the land to participate in this colossal exercise in group-think ironically disguised as a defense of their First Amendment rights. One major metropolitan paper, however, stood tall, choosing to exhibit its independence by deciding not to participate. Here is how it announced its decision: “The Los Angeles Times, however, has decided not to participate. There will be no free press editorial on our page today.”
                The editorial continued: “This is not because we don’t believe that President Trump has been engaged in a cynical, demagogic and unfair assault on our industry. He has, and we have written about it on numerous occasions. As early as April 2017, we wrote this as part of a full-page editorial on ‘Trump’s War on Journalism’: ‘Trump’s strategy is pretty clear: By branding reporters as liars, he apparently hopes to discredit, disrupt or bully into silence anyone who challenges his version of reality. By undermining trust in news organizations and delegitimizing journalism and muddling the facts so that Americans no longer know who to believe, he can deny and distract and help push his administration’s far-fetched storyline.’ We still believe that. Nevertheless, the editorial board decided not to write about the subject on this particular Thursday because we cherish our independence.”
               The Monty Python Troupe couldn’t have written better satire, although theirs would have been intentional. The Times just wrote extensively about precisely what it said it wasn’t going to write about. And then it sniffed: “The Los Angeles Times editorial board does not speak for the New York Times or for the Boston Globe or the Chicago Tribune or the Denver Post. We share certain opinions with those newspapers; we disagree on other things. Even when we do agree with another editorial page — on the death penalty or climate change or war in Afghanistan, say — we reach our own decisions and positions after careful consultation and deliberation among ourselves, and then we write our own editorials. We would not want to leave the impression that we take our lead from others, or that we engage in groupthink.” (Emphases mine). Of course not. Perish the thought.
  The Times then went on to say that the president treats the media as a cabal, referenced his “enemies of the people” remark, and mocked him for believing that “we’re in cahoots to do damage to the country.” It closed by stating: “We mean no disrespect to those who have decided to write on this important subject today. But we will continue to write about the issue on our own schedule.”
  You’ve got to hand it to the L.A. Times. It managed to write about what it said it wouldn’t write about that day, referenced all the times it wrote about the subject in the past, and promised to write more about it in the future, all-the-while touting its extraordinary independence and inability to be influenced by its fellow newspapers.
  Remarkably, it took advantage of an opportunity that others of its ilk used for virtue-signaling, did likewise, and then virtue-signaled again by saying it wouldn’t take part in the mass virtue-signaling like its common, garden-variety peers.

 Fake news?

 Real comedy.

The EU Bans The Sale Of Certain Matches

                The European Union (EU) has taken yet another bold step in an effort to protect its citizens: it has banned the sale and manufacture of “strike anywhere matches,” according to London’s Daily Express. And the chemicals used to make them. Strike anywhere matches are typically a little longer and a little stouter than their brethren found in matchbooks. They can be lit by being struck against most abrasive surfaces. Henceforth, only safety matches will be allowed. They will light only if struck on the strip attached to the package itself. Ah, much safer, no?
                I am not aware of large swaths of the EU being ravaged by fires started by “strike anywhere matches.” Nor am I privy to the countless thousands that must have died due to the nearly spontaneous combustibility of these heinous items. If one thinks about it logically, why is it safer to have the ignition strip on the same package in which the matches are contained? That’s kind of like selling a loaded gun, isn’t it? Whereas, with strike anywhere matches one has to go about scratching them across various items and surfaces, hoping against hope that one of them will somehow ignite the match. And what about lighters?
                Why doesn’t the EU just ban fire outright? Speaking of fires, surely candles will be next to go. Burners on stoves can be very dangerous if not utilized properly. Bats, clubs, wickets, shovels, nets, forks, weed-whackers and scissors, among a myriad of other items, can be deadly if used improperly.
                Perhaps we should ban the term “matches” so as not to unduly upset anyone. Soccer match? No! Soccer game! A friendly, even! They should all be friendlies!
                Where are we headed? Will the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) seal our demise? We have already rendered ourselves nearly incapable of existence in the real, physical world. While attempting to ban anything conceivably dangerous or upsetting, as if that were possible, we are succeeding in banning personal responsibility…and freedom.
                As Ben Franklin famously said: “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
                And, very soon, they will not have either.

                These are the times that try men’s souls.
                I read that somewhere and I liked it, so I thought I would use it here. Anyway, there’s something that I want to get off my chest: The University of Northern Colorado is now offering “breastfeeding and ‘chestfeeding’” stations on campus. What is “chestfeeding” you ask? It’s a lot like breastfeeding, but it’s for women who think they are men. The school’s Center for Women’s and Gender Equity is now recognizing and supporting “chestfeeding”--  a term used by transgender advocates to refer to “trans men” who breastfeed their children—on an equal basis with breastfeeding.
                Some “trans men” opt to have their breasts removed (though apparently not Michael Moore) while others wish to avoid mastectomy procedures and elect to keep their tatas. That is where “chestfeeding” comes in. According to the website, “Some masculine-identified trans people use this term to describe the act of feeding their baby from their chest, regardless of whether they have had chest surgery.” What could be more masculine than giving birth to and nursing your baby?
                The university’s Women’s and Gender Equity website proudly proclaims: “As a student, faculty or staff member at UNC, you will be glad to know that we have many options to support your decision to breastfeed/chestfeed your child when you return to work or school including three Lactation Stations on campus. UNC’s Breastfeeding Lactation Stations are sponsored by the Center for Women’s and Gender Equity and the Nutrition and Dietetics Program and serve students, faculty, staff and community members who choose to continue to breastfeed/chestfeed after returning to school or work.”
                Who’s to say males can’t ovulate? Why do you think they call it menstruation? Breastfeeding/chestfeeding, it’s all the same. If women have ovaries, trans men can have “brovaries,” right?
                 This nonsense is one giant booby-trap.

The Boston Globe And The Eight Years' War?

                Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the opinion page of The Boston Globe, has taken it upon herself to reach out to newspaper editorial boards nationwide to coordinate written anti-Trump polemics to be published on August 16th.
                “We are not the enemy of the people,” Pritchard professed. You certainly act like it Ms. Pritchard, which might explain the historically low levels of trust they have in you. The Globe comically denounced the alleged “dirty war against the free press.” The truth of the matter is that the mainstream media has been waging an unrelenting, unprecedentedly vicious and dirty war against President Trump since the day he was elected. Multiple independent studies show that coverage of Trump has been between 90% and 95% negative, despite a booming economy and record low unemployment, among other positives. This is by far the most universally negative coverage of any president in American history. The Fourth Estate— literally—goes easier on mass murderers and foreign dictators.

                It would be fake news to report that these outlets aren’t engaging in fake news.

                Pritchard recently said roughly 70 papers had committed to nasty editorials thus far, with more expected to sign on daily. The fish wrap factories ranged from large metropolitan dailies such as the Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald and the notoriously leftist Minneapolis StarTribune, to small weekly papers with circulations as low as 4,000. (Similar to the attendance at a Hillary Clinton rally)!
                It is a measure of just how far these erstwhile bastions of unbiased journalism have fallen that they now conspire to launch a joint attack on the duly elected president of the United States of America, simply for holding them accountable. These editors will surely pat themselves on the back for their courageous joint assault on the president, and for “speaking truth to power,” oblivious to the fact that that is what Trump has been doing all along. Indeed, that is why they hate him.
                Time will tell how this turns out for the conniving columnists, who are preternaturally unable to take the high road. Hopefully, the people will see this collaborating cabal for what it is: an intolerant, hypocritical protector of the establishment elite, colluding among themselves while pointing their partisan fingers at Trump.

                The Founders were right. A free press is necessary for a free society. I wish we had one.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Snubs Ben Shapiro

                Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the newly-minted Democratic congressional candidate from New York’s 14th district, has previously lamented that her opponents are afraid or unwilling to debate the issues with her. Ben Shapiro, a conservative commentator, recently attempted to redress this grievance by offering to debate Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, going so far as to pledge to donate $10,000 to her campaign if she accepted.
                She did not.
                Shapiro saw that Democratic National Committee chairperson Tom Perez dubbed the young socialist the “future of the Democratic Party” before tweeting: “Miss Ocasio-Cortez, I’m really excited that you’ve been elevated to that position and I would love to have a real conversation with you about the issues. You’ve noted that you think Republicans are afraid to debate you or talk to you or discuss the issues with you. Not only am I eager to discuss the issues with you, I’m willing to offer $10,000 to your campaign, today, for you to come on our Sunday special. We can have an hour-long conversation about all the topics under the sun, really probe your belief system.”
                To which Ms. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in reply:Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions. And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.” Catcalling? Bad intentions? Who is entitled? You did solicit that request, by bemoaning the fact that no one would debate you. You made a point of trolling and teasing people, the verbal equivalent of walking by male construction workers in a micro-bikini, and then acting incredulous when they responded. In a real sense, you acted as a typical bully, asking for it and then running and hiding when someone took you at your word.
                If you believe that someone challenging you to a debate is “catcalling,” do you think being tested on your knowledge, perhaps in a college classroom (maybe by a male professor!), is rape?
                Diane Feinstein, Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi, among others, have, incredibly, been re-elected to positions of power for decades on end. It is revolting and pathetic when the likes of Hillary Clinton The Older and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez The Younger-- in the big picture two of the most fortunate people on Earth—blame sexism/misogyny for the fact that their every wish, desire and belief doesn’t go unquestioned.

San Diego State University Keeps "Aztec," Drops "Warrior"

                San Diego State University has decided to keep its longstanding “Aztecs” nickname, though it will tone down its Aztec Warrior mascot to a more culturally appropriate figure: “Spirit Leader.” SDSU’s interim president, Sally Roush, recently told the San Diego Union-Tribune, “The Aztec Warrior…will be retained, but as Spirit Leader, not mascot.” So, instead of appearing menacing, will he now be portrayed as a Mesoamerican version of Richard Simmons?
                “We just expect a much more dignified and appropriate demeanor from that person. You won’t see the Aztec Warrior doing pushups in the end zone. You won’t see the Aztec Warrior dancing with the cheerleaders,” Roush added. What, he’s out-of-shape and gay? Gets winded easily? Is that a depiction of which an actual Aztec Warrior would typically approve?
                A task-force-conducted major survey determined that SDSU, its alumni, and the public all want to keep the Aztec nickname, which has been in use since 1925, according to the Union-Tribune. Inexplicably, the task force concluded: “In the current political climate relative to the US/Mexico border, the elimination of the moniker may be read as discriminatory and an attempt to ‘erase’ our relationship to Mexico and other Latin Americans,” the paper reported. Hmmm. If Cleveland’s major league baseball team gave up the nickname “Indians,” would that be viewed as an attempt to “erase” the squad’s relationship to Native Americans?
                However, the group, furrowing its collective brow, apparently considered counter-arguments as well, noting that dropping the Aztecs moniker makes sense “because of the current political climate.” You know, that whole “appropriation” thing. Yet, in the end, the group essentially decided, “Aztec good. Warrior bad.”
                San Diego State Aztec “Spirit Leaders” it is!

                And remember: like yourself, eat healthy and squeeze your buns! Go team!

Atlanta School To Drop Pledge Of Allegiance?

                The Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School recently announced that it was eliminating the Pledge of Allegiance from its morning meeting agenda. Campus president Lara Zelski wrote a letter to parents announcing the changes to students’ morning meetings, a copy of which was posted on the school’s website. Zelski explained: “One change that we made to our morning meeting agenda this year is that we will not be including the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance each morning.” She added, “Students will continue to lead the meeting by asking our community to stand to participate in our Wolf Pack Chant together.” What the hell is the Wolf Pack Chant? Will everyone stand up and growl and howl together as one? Recite Little Red Riding Hood?
                Zelski said that the decision to omit the Pledge of Allegiance “was made in an effort to begin our day as a fully inclusive and connected community.” She noted that, “Over the past couple of years it has become increasingly obvious that more and more of our community were choosing to not stand and/or recite the pledge. There are many emotions around this and we want everyone in our school family to start their day in a positive manner. After all, that is the whole purpose of our morning meeting.”
                No, that is the whole purpose of The Pledge, “president” Zelinski. You know, “One nation,” “indivisible.” The United States. Hello? With the passing of time-- and the ranting of leftists-- it becomes harder and harder for a sane person to get through any given day.
                Ms. Zelski stated that teachers, in collaboration with the “K-5 leadership team” and other students, will create a more suitable pledge for the school’s morning meetings in the coming months. “This pledge,” president progressive wrote, “will focus on students’ civic responsibility to their school family, community, country and our global society. I will keep you informed of the progress with this. I am really looking forward to what our students create.”
                I, for one, am so excited to see this new and improved Pledge, I can hardly sleep. That is why I decided to write one myself. I’m guessing it will be very similar indeed to what the scholars at the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School come up with.

                I pledge allegiance to diversity, and to the tolerance and inclusivity that implies. And to the burgeoning LGBTQIA community. We are one world, indivisible, except for the evil white Christian male heterosexuals. We seek one-world government and equality of outcome for all.”

                Howling ensues.
                (The Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School has apparently rescinded its decision to drop the Pledge of Allegiance from its morning meeting, due to public outcry, since I wrote this piece).

USAF Surrenders To MRFF

            Colonel Stacy Jo Huser, Commander of the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming, removed the Bible from a POW-MIA table and replaced it with a generic “book of faith,” according to Fox News. Colonel Huser told Fox that the Bible was removed to insure “the religious and non-religious feel included and cared for.” She made the decision following complaints from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. (Why isn’t there a Freedom From Bogus Anti-Religious Groups Foundation?). MRFF’s head, Mikey Weinstein, wrote in the Huffingandpuffington Post that he is dedicated to fighting “virulent religious oppression” of the sort carried out by “incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”
Gangs of fundamentalist Christian monster terrorists forcing a weaponized and twisted version of their religion upon their helpless subordinates? Well, that seems like a purely rational statement of facts, doesn’t it?
The table traditionally included a Holy Bible to represent “faith in a higher power and the pledge to our country, founded as one nation under God,” according to Todd Starnes of Fox News. Starnes said that Huser told him the Bible will be replaced with “a book of faith” containing spiritual writings and prayers from the five Department of Defense Chaplain-appointed groups and a sixth set of blank pages “to represent those who find solace by other means.”
Sometimes, those blank pages speak to me, move me to tears. They are so (blanking) beautiful.
Huser averred: “Taking care of our Airmen is a top priority for the 90th Missile Wing and its leaders. To drive that point home, one of our focus areas on F.E. Warren Air Force Base is increasing the sense of belonging for all our Airmen; a large part of that effort is ensuring the religious and non-religious feel included and cared for. No matter an Airman’s religious or non-religious beliefs, it is crucial for all to know we are an equally valued part of the same team vital to our mission’s success.”
“Virulent religious oppression,” carried out by “gangs” of “monsters” who “terrorize” their fellow Americans by forcing a “weaponized and twisted” version of their religion upon the “helpless?”
Sounds more like radicalized Islam to me.

It was once said that “Nothing Can Stop the U.S. Air Force.” A handful of bigoted clowns from a third-rate anti-Christian organization just proved that statement false.

We Are All Nazis Now

                Oscar winning actress, animal rights activist, and all-around lunatic Natalie Portman recently compared the consumption of meat to the atrocities of the Holocaust in a new video for PETA. Ms. Portman, ever the airhead actress spouting lines others have written, shared some quotes from Nobel Prize laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer. Singer, himself a Jew, was a novelist and animal rights activist who wrote; “We do to God’s creatures what the Nazis did to us.” And, “As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.”

                Tell that to Planned Parenthood, asshole.

                PETA ran an ad campaign in Germany about a decade ago in which it featured black and white images of concentration camp inmates alongside a colored image of turkeys and chickens about to be killed and processed. The Times of Israel reported that one of the campaign’s slogans was, “For animals, all people are Nazis.” The Times also reported that, in response to that campaign, a German court banned PETA from comparing the consumption of meat to the Holocaust.
                Last June, Portman released an animal rights film of her very own, a documentary called “Eating Animals.” Okay, it wasn’t her very own, but she co-produced the documentary, which is based on the 2009 book of the same name by Jonathan Safran Foer, a friend of Portman.
                Comparing human’s consumption of animals to the heinous crimes of the Holocaust is wrong on too many levels to address. It is the truest and vilest form of hate speech. Portman should apologize to the Jewish people and the state of Israel. As Singer should have done. Virtually all living things survive by eating other living things. Animals survive by eating other animals. (Moreover, If you believe in the Bible, man was given dominion over the animals). If “all people are Nazis” for eating animals, then all animals are Nazis too. Every hyena a Hitler, every hawk a Himmler, every grizzly bear a Goebbels, every eagle an Eichmann. They tear other innocent animals apart—limb from limb— or swallow them whole, with no compunction or remorse.

 If there can be no peace, liberty or harmony as long as innocent creatures shed blood, there can be no peace, liberty or harmony as long as Planned Parenthood exists.
