Add to the long list of things wrong with California the increasingly obvious signs that California’s political class is certifiably insane. Right now California officials are pondering whether to ban soda straws and classify coffee as a carcinogen:
LOS ANGELES—A California court case could turn every cup of coffee here into a jolt of reality on the risks of cancer.
Under a state law, cancer warnings already follow Californians when they enter the lobby of apartment buildings, drive into parking garages and sit down at restaurants. They also pop up on products including kitty litter, ceramic plates and black licorice.
Now, a state judge in Los Angeles is expected to rule in the coming months whether coffee should be labeled as carcinogenic under the three-decade old law, which is meant to warn Californians of potential harms.
Rep Adam Schiff for this screed
U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., took the crazy train all the way to the station when he suggested over the weekend the memo could lead to another Oklahoma City-style bombing.
The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and told host George Stephanopoulos people may not come forward with critical information out of distrust for the intelligence community.
(If only Demcorats took a similar stance when the left is smearing cops.)
“But it is impeaching the FBI,” Schiff said on Sunday, when asked if the release of the memo was discrediting Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
“And the problem with this, and this is I think at the heart of the department’s concern, is if you have a neighbor who’s buying fertilizer, lots of fertilizer, but has no yard and you have concerns about it and you want to call the FBI, you’re now going to wonder ‘Is that FBI going to hold my name in confidence or this information in confidence, what if this becomes politicized?’”
Oh shut the “F” up! This is not about vilifying the entire FBI. It is about a presidential campaign, along with a few, very few bad actors trying to rig an election. Schiff knoes this, but, again, the truth matters not to people like him
Good Freaking Grief!
Northumbria Police in Britain warned online users that anyone who posts “offensive” and “potentially criminal” comments about grooming gangs will be tracked down and prosecuted.
The police force launched an investigation on Facebook comments posted to its Facebook page in response to stories about the Operation Shelter scandal. During the scandal, white British girls were groomed and sexually abused by gangs made up of mostly Muslim Pakistani men in Newcastle. 18 men were convicted over the sex crimes.
According to Chronicle Live and Breitbart, police reviewed every comment on the page after a member of the public complained that the posts made references to the convicted criminals’ race and religion—two of which were then recorded as racially aggravated public order offenses.
Well, I am happy they are focusing on “insensitive” words as much, or more than on rape gangs. But, today word crimes are taken as seriously as actual crimes it seems. No worry though, the Thought Police are watching and can help you be re-educated
“As a result of a complaint, we can confirm we looked into a number of comments posted on the force’s Facebook page,” said a spokesman from Northumbria Police. “Following an investigation, which has now concluded, we spoke to two males as voluntary attenders and visited a further four people in their homes, and provided them with words of advice.”
Words of advice huh? Words like shut up or else likely. Again, we must protect violent criminals. This part of the story might make your head explode
While many of the groomers’ sex crimes against young girls were, by their own admissions, racially-motivated, Judge Penny Moreland allowed the convicts to receive lesser sentences because she believed the victims were targeted “not because of their race, but because they were young, impressionable, naïve and vulnerable.”
So, rape is worse if racially motivated? Rapists are less dangerous if they do not use race as a motivating factor? Frankly, why the hell does the motivation even matter? Young girls were victimized in brutal ways, but the vermin who committed the evil acts are getting off light because what? They were more PC when committing their barbaric acts?
The commander of the Resistance Washed-up Drunks Division was in rare form today. Not only did Chelsea Handler push the BS liberal notion that it’s easier to buy a gun than vote, she accused President Trump of hating black people and suppressing their voting rights. She doesn’t have any actual evidence of this stuff, and it’s all easily disproved, but since when did facts get in the way of a good hysterical liberal narrative? Especially when it’s fueled by cheap wine and cheaper vodka?
Oh Chelsea you are a buffoon aren’t you? I wonder if it ever bothers her that she is simply regurgitating false narratives? Of course to the left, truth is meaningless, so it is doubtful she even hesitates to continue wallowing in ignorance
The moonbattery is everywhere — even in a movie about the ultimate countermoonbat, Winston Churchill. Churchill’s ever-present cigars were iconic…
Yet the makers of a new biopic of the wartime leader have still deemed it necessary to warn film-goers that ‘the depictions of tobacco smoking are based solely on artistic consideration’.
The ludicrous health alert comes in the final credits of Darkest Hour, in which Gary Oldman has been acclaimed by critics for his performance as the former Prime Minister.
Actually, the depictions of tobacco smoking are more likely to be based on historical rather than artistic consideration. Churchill, who lived to be 90, habitually smoked cigars.
Are we really at this point? Are we really this hypersensitive and fragile? Are we to the point when a movie cannot even portray a historical figure accurately? But, I suppose it makes sense. After we have torn down statues and flags, and cleansed names of streets, schools, why not erase facts about historical icons too? What cannot be erased must be cleansed by the cultural Stalinists. And make no mistake, the cleansing has no end, even nations must be destroyed
If you ever wonder what the end goal is for the Left, consider the video above. And, again, make no mistake, one day videos like that will be made here, in America unless we stand up to Leftism.
Remember kids Dean Obeidallah is a professional idiot do not try this at home
What a complete tool
Marxist Moron alert!
Boston University theater professor Kyna Hamill has declared the beloved Christmas carol “Jingle Bells” to be a racist song, insisting the classic has a “problematic history” of being performed to make fun of African Americans.
“The legacy of ‘Jingle Bells’ is one where its blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history,” Hamill wrote in a research paper on the carol, according to Fox News.
“Although ‘One Horse Open Sleigh,’ for most of its singers and listeners, may have eluded its racialized past and taken its place in the seemingly unproblematic romanticization of a normal ‘white’ Christmas, attention to the circumstances of its performance history enables reflection on its problematic role in the construction of blackness and whiteness in the United States,” she added.
Blah, blah, blah, bullshit! She is just another malcontent who should be told to F#@* off
Oh no, babbling idiot Sarah Silverman has a boyfriend who had an American flag, that triggered her Downtrend has the story
On her show I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman, she proves without a doubt that her program is deceptively titled with this little anecdote:
“I had a boyfriend many years ago, he was my first boyfriend who had his own house, and one day I went outside to see what he was doing, and he was hoisting an American flag up the flagpole in his front yard. And I instantly felt very weird. It didn’t make sense, but I felt this feeling of like, um, I felt scared – yeah, I felt scared. So I was like, ‘Uh, what are you doing?’ and he said, ‘Raising the flag,’ and I was like, ‘Why?’ and he’s like, ‘Um, because I love America?’ and I was like, ‘Right, right, of course.’ But inside I was shaken,” started Silverman.
But wait, it gets worse when she is able to identify the source of her disturbing feelings:
“I called my sister Susie to tell her what happened. Now, maybe you’re thinking, ‘What do you mean what happened? Nothing happened, your boyfriend put an American flag up at his own house.’ No, you’re totally right, I had no idea why I was freaking out. I just – I had this very visceral reaction and my sister, who knows shit because she’s a rabbi in Israel, explained to me, she was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance? These things tend to ring a bell for us.’ Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense,” said Silverman.
So, national pride = Nationalism = Nazism = anti=-Semitism? Good Freaking Grief!
Nothing is so ideologically pure that it cannot be denounced for political incorrectness, especially if it is associated with Christmas — not even Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer:
HuffPost accused the film of racism, sexism, homophobia, and every sort of bigotry — not realizing that the movie actually condemns these attitudes toward “misfits.”
The movie is rife with scenes of marginalization, but HuffPost takes them absurdly out of context.
Rudolph’s father Donner “verbally abuses him”; Santa Claus mocks Donner for his son’s nose; the school coach encourages bullying; Donner forbids his wife from joining the search for his son, saying: “No. This is man’s work”; Rudolph’s girlfriend Clarice has a bigoted father; and “even the elf is an outcast for wanting to be a dentist.” …
But the movie doesn’t end there. In fact, “Rudolph” has the main character and his elf friend prove themselves, and receive honor — and heartfelt apologies — from Santa, Donner, and the insulting elf. … [T]he bullying was not the point — the vindication was the point.
That won’t do for HuffPost social justice warriors.
It’s … not enough unless the bullies are trampled and the marginalized take power.
You simply cannot make it up
Rep. Marjorie Decker, a Cambridge Democrat, made at the hearing as she was testifying in support of various gun control measures and against bills she said would erode Massachusetts’ status as the state with the lowest rate of gun deaths.
“It is a privilege that we allow individuals to hold onto something that causes harm and death,” Decker said. “It is a privilege to have a car license, it is a privilege to have a gun license.”
Jim Wallace, executive director of the Gun Owners Action League, said Decker’s comment illustrated frustrations lawful gun owners feel in Massachusetts.
“One of the problems that we face here in Massachusetts is that the Second Amendment is barely recognized in the state as a whole and certainly not as a civil right. I could not have asked for a better witness to that than the previous legislator that actually described our civil rights as a privilege,” Wallace said. “I am aghast that an elected official would actually say that … but that’s not unusual.”
Can you say unfit to serve?
Good Freaking Grief! And these people vote? I hope it expands their minds a bit at least to actually see a need to think rather than emote. The students in this clip seem to have had their horizons expanded abit
Notice the shirt. Che Guevara was chief executioner for Fidel Castro’s monstrous regime. He is the direct corollary of Heinrich Himmler: the guy in charge of making sure large numbers of people were murdered on schedule.
She probably believes oligarchical collectivism is morally justified, so long as you call it communist instead of Nazism.
Stupidity? Nuclear Grade!
Facebook introduced dozens of options for users to identify their gender today – and although the social media giant said it would not be releasing a comprehensive list, ABC News has found at least 58 so far.
Previously, users had to identify themselves as male or female. They were also given the option of not answering or keeping their gender private.
User’s can now select a “custom” gender option.
“There’s going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world,” Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison told the Associated Press. Harrison, who worked on the project, is in the process of gender transition, from male to female.
But of course, another identity-obsessed activist helping to erase gender. Now yo can just make up a gender. Heck we can even start brainwashing and indoctrinating very young children. Sure it might scar them, or even ruin their life, but that matters not because, Progressivism!
The National Science Foundation is spending over $130,000 on a study that asks four-year-olds about their “internal sense of gender identity.”
A grant for a two-year study was awarded to the University of Washington this summer. The project will interview 250 children aged four to six, and their parents, asking a series of questions about “gendered behavior.”
“Prominent theories of gender development have discussed the degree to which gender identity results from an internal sense of gender and socialization processes,” according to the grant. “However, tests of these theories have been limited because, for most children, internal gender identity and environmental socialization substantially overlap, rendering it impossible to distinguish the relative impact of each factor on gender development.”
If you get angry reading this, good! You ought to. Can we just not let four-year-olds be four? No, of course not, because IDENTITY! Identity is now everything, and those “identities” are often very rare, or just created out of a twisted and consuming need to normalize every act or behavior and desire. Look, I do not care what adults do, they can identify as ClownSexuals or Part Time Sexuals, whatever. But the kids, leave them alone to be kids. Of course activists can never allow that can they? Normal gender must die! And abusing innocents babies is a small price for IDENTITY JUSTICE!
Kristina Olson and Selin Gülgöz, two researchers at the university, are leading the study. Both are involved with the school’s “TransYouth Project,” a longitudinal study of gender development and mental health of transgender children.
The TransYouth Project was featured in the Katie Couric documentary for National Geographic,Gender Revolution.
“Our current research study is recruiting children aged 3–12 who are transgender, gender nonconforming, and siblings of gender nonconforming children,” the website for the project states
Dear Lord help us. Propaganda anyone?
Why is it I doubt the veracity of this story? Maybe because the Left does not value truth, and is certainly not above using children to further their agenda? Dave Blount sees the end of this road
They could have saved $130,000. I can tell you the results of the study right now. Gender is a repressive patriarchal social construct that must be destroyed by encouraging little boys to pretend they are girls.
It would be no more wasteful — and far less damaging — if they piled up our money in huge mounds and burned it up in bonfires.
Far less damaging? Yes, consider what an expert, not an activist, has to say
Finally, someone is more concerned with the welfare of children and society in general than they are afraid of being called out as thought criminals by depraved liberal elitists:
Michelle Cretella, MD, president of the American College of Pediatricians, told LifeSiteNews that National Geographic is “promoting a political agenda over science and the wellbeing of innocent children” by featuring a young transgender child.
“‘Affirming’ so called transgender children means sterilizing them as young as 11years old,” said Dr. Cretella. “Puberty blockers plus cross-sex hormones causes permanent sterility. And biological girls who ‘transition’ to male by taking testosterone may have a double mastectomy at age 16. The life time use of cross-sex hormones also puts these children at risk for stroke, heart disease, diabetes, cancers and more.” …
Cretella believes it is both unethical and harmful for parents to make such decisions regarding their children’s gender because they will most likely grow out of their gender dysphoria. “When a child under the age of 12 thinks they are the opposite sex and is allowed to naturally pass through puberty, 75%-95% of the time that child will accept his or her biological sex by the late teen years.” …
Cretella argues that public support of “transgenderism” in children is tantamount to “child abuse.” “When academic, medical and other public institutions propagate the lifetime use of toxic hormones and the surgical removal of healthy body parts as healthcare for children they are engaged in institutionalized child abuse,” she said.
Again, leave children alone! They are not guinea pigs for social activism or gender justice, or any other false label the Left will put on this abuse!
U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown announced during a speech Thursday afternoon that he plans to introduce a bill he hopes will curtail hate speech at universities.
If passed, the bill would require universities and colleges to demonstrate they have programs and initiatives in place that clearly define to students “what is acceptable speech and what is not acceptable speech,” Brown (D-Md.) said to a room of roughly 150 people at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center
For institutions that might lack the necessary resources to create these programs, the bill would set aside grant money to “take away any excuse,” Brown said.
So, we would empower the college to restrict speech as they see fit, at taxpayers expense of course. Gee what could go wrong?
Equality is their God, even equality of depravation
