Submitted for your approval: three recent news stories so preposterous that they can only be true.
First: the Calgary Board of Education (CBE) actually condemned the practice of teaching that “self-control” is a “necessary virtue.” In sixth-grade sex education classes. The CBE stated that such an ideal is detrimental to “healthy” sexuality. Yes, healthy sexuality is to have no self-control, no virtue, and just do whatever the hell feels good at all times. Especially if you are a sixth-grader. Who could that ethos harm?
In a Draft Curriculum Review Briefing (DCRB) submitted to the Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees (RMBT) on March 8, the board wrote: “The idea of ‘self-control is a necessary virtue’ is a heavily faith-based concept that erodes the ability to learn about healthy sexual relationships.” Yes, the best thing we can do is get rid of any and all faith-based concepts! Especially those that prevent us from exploring our baser instincts for depravity, violence, greed, sloth, etc.
One can see how the CBE got its dander up. The district’s existing overview of sixth grade teaching about “human reproduction” notes that “It is important to think clearly before giving consent to anything that may have long-term physical, emotional, or social consequences.” How 1950s! Thinking clearly is, like, so totally yesterday! Who cares what the “long term physical, emotional, or social consequences” are…for sixth-graders? Or for anyone? Just jump in and let your freak flag fly!
Second: One of USAToday’s honorees for Women of the Year (WOY) is a man! Progress!! You’ve come a long way, baby!!! A recent USAToday headline exclaimed, “Women of the Year honoree Admiral Rachel Levine defines courage.” The accompanying article read: “A four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, Levine becomes the nation’s first openly transgender four-star officer across any of the uniformed services of the United States.
Let’s set the record straight here. Levine is a man, probably the laziest “transgender” in history. The only thing he’s done to “transition” is to drape a string of pearls around his neck and possibly curl his hair a bit. And he is not a real “four-star admiral” in “the uniformed services of the United States.” If you want to, say, take the Pacific back from Imperial Japan… or defend Taiwan from the Chicoms today, who ya’ gonna’ call? Why, The U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, of course! Headed by Admiral Rachel Levine. Who is a woman! Really!
In truth, Levine couldn’t command a canoe let alone a naval fleet, and probably doesn’t know Guadalcanal from a root canal. Also, “she” is obviously confused about certain bodily health matters, unfortunate for someone leading the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Moreover, he took his mother out of a personal care facility even as he directed Pennsylvania’s nursing homes and certain care facilities to admit recovered COVID-19 patients who were treated at nearby hospitals. Shades of Gov. Cuomo.
Third: Someone named Alexis McGill Johnson recently posted a photograph of a pro-abortion ice cream truck on her official social media account. The pro-abortion campaign involved passing out ice cream-- and free condoms-- at the annual South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. She tweeted: "Ice cream, you scream, we all scream for abortion rights!" She added, “Catch us around SXSW and stop by to grab some free Bans Off swag, condoms, and education on the cold-hearted policies of the Texas legislature.” Is an ice cream truck a particularly apt vehicle from which to launch a pro-abortion campaign? Mixing food and the sudden, violent deaths of innocent babies seems inappropriate to me, period. But an ice cream truck immediately conjures up images of lazy summer days and young kids gleefully running after it to procure their favorite confection. Utilizing a Norman Rockwellesque image to promote infanticide should be as counterproductive as it is repulsive.
A pro-abortion ice cream truck? What’s next, a pro-holocaust bagels and lox stand?
Remember: self-control, virtue, and faith-based concepts are bad, but transgenderism is good.
God help us going forward.
