Climate-change Fearmongering Has Turned Totally Unhinged

21st July 2017

Jonah Goldberg turns over a rock.

One of the hallmarks of the “Ugly American” is the habit of thinking foreigners will understand what you’re saying if you just shout it louder and louder.

The Ugly Environmentalist does something similar. He exaggerates the challenge of global warming by using ever more hysterical rhetoric, thinking that if the last doomsday prediction didn’t work, this one will.

Women and minorities hardest hit, of course.

Profs Fear White Supremacists Are Infiltrating Medieval Studies

20th July 2017

Read it.

Oh noes!

Academics are now finding white supremacy under the medieval studies bed. As Campus Reform reports, some professors of the period fear that the forces of the “alt-right” are using using this storied age to advance a dangerous “white supremacist fantasy.”

Vassar College professor Dorothy Kim issued this dire warning to The Chronicle of Higher Education last Sunday: “It should be a really, really important time to reflect on why are these things going on and what we can do to combat that. The worry I would have is that, is the field going to be forever linked to white supremacy?”

The worry that I have is, is this going to be another field that surrenders respect for reality to pursue a Leftist political agenda?

Shock, Dismay In Academia At Scorpion Acting Like Scorpion

19th July 2017

There are many very stupid ideas about free speech in academia. Perhaps the stupidest is this: free speech is a legal norm used to protect the powerful at the expense of the powerless, but exceptions to free speech will benefit the powerless. Nobody with a passing knowledge of the history of free speech takes this seriously.

Jonathan Kay on the Tyranny of Twitter: How Mob Censure Is Changing the Intellectual Landscape

19th July 2017

Read it.

… for certain rather expansive definitions of ‘intellectual’.

In a 1945 essay, Notes on Nationalism, George Orwell described a rumour among leftists that the real reason American troops had been brought to Europe was to suppress English communism, not fight the Nazis.

“One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that,” Orwell famously noted. “No ordinary man could be such a fool.” Even by Orwell’s high standards, those words have aged extremely well. Tell an ordinary Canadian schlub that white people aren’t allowed to quote Beyoncé, and he will be smart enough to laugh in your face. Dress down a superbly intelligent Peace and Conflict Studies PhD candidate for the same act, and she will fall over herself with apologies.

Just as Muslim terrorists tend to kill more Muslims than non-Muslims, PC ThoughtCrime mobs tend to attack their own co-delusionists more often than their opposition.

Geist Gushes Over Gore: Skips ‘Inconvenient’ Fact Check of Climate Claims

17th July 2017

In a fawning two-part interview with former Vice President Al Gore on Monday’s NBC Today, fill-in co-host Willie Geist sympathized with the Democrat’s alarmist environmental crusade and promoted his new film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. However, absent from the conversation was any mention of the numerous errors, inaccuracies, and false predictions made in Gore’s first documentary, An Inconvenient Truth.

Popular Hip-Hop Artist Talib Kweli Spends Weekend Calling Black People ‘Coons’ On Twitter

16th July 2017

Read it.

Talib Kweli, the popular artist best known for being the other half of the hip-hop group Black Star, dedicated countless hours over the weekend fighting against perceived “racism” by calling other black men “coons.” He directed much of his ire toward respected African-American economist Thomas Sowell, against whom he has a long-held grudge.

Any of Thomas Sowell’s fingers has a bigger brain than Talib Kweli.

Kweli once claimed that Sowell’s contributions to the conservative publication National Review made him a “white supremacist.”

It’s not enough to be black, you have to be the Right Kind of Black.

Kweli responded to Virk’s remark by sending him dozens upon dozens of replies with remarks like “Coon coon coon coon coon.”

I guess we know who the coon is.

Population Doomster Paul Ehrlich’s New Forecast: ‘Biological Annihilation’

Stanford biologist Paul Ehrlich has made a gaudy career of prophesying imminent ecological doom. “In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now,” he declared in his 1968 manifesto The Population Bomb. In the subsequent 50 years, as world population more than doubled, the proportion of chronically undernourished people in the world dropped from 33 percent in 1968 to 11 percent now.

More Fake News: Morning Shows Try to Pin Violent G20 Riots on Trump

7th July 2017

Read it.

After a long night of violence in Hamburg at the international G20 Summit, where left-wing, anti-capitalist rioters injured over 70 police officers, ABC and CBS still found a way to blame Trump for the violence. Despite both networks acknowledging that violence at these summits is “nothing new,” ABC and CBS spun that Trump’s presence was one of the primary reasons activists were inspired to commit violence.

Friday morning’s Good Morning America broadcast on ABC treated the rioters with kid gloves. Despite setting cars on fire, looting businesses and throwing bottles and rocks at police, ABC’s James Longman simply called them “protesters” instead of the more accurate “rioters” or “looters.” Not to mention that no political affiliation was ascribed to them. From watching ABC’s report alone, the viewer would have a hard time understanding who the “protesters” were and what exactly they were protesting. The only hint comes at the end of Longman’s report, which finally calls them “anti-capitalist” but frames their actions around Trump:

“Anti-capitalist protests always target G20 meetings but this year the stakes are higher than ever as President Trump comes to town,” Longman urged.

If it wasn’t clear already what ABC was implying, Longman repeated this sentiment again in his report the next hour of Good Morning America:

“It’s unclear who was provoking who but I think it’s fair to say that with Donald Trump in town, the stakes are certainly higher.”

Too bad George W. Bush isn’t around any more, they could blame him, too.

This disturbing incident went unreported on both ABC and CBS during their evening news programs.

How the Other Left Coast looks at Real America. The Cold Civil War in a nutshell.

Fairly considered, the Texas legislature is more functional than the United States Congress, and more genteel than the House of Commons. But a recurrent crop of crackpots and ideologues has fed the state’s reputation for aggressive know-nothingism and proudly retrograde politics.

The United States is full of people who were born outside of the coastal behavioral sinks but whose dearest dream was to shed their bucolic origin and ape the manners and ideology of the ruling establishment. Typically the first thing these people do when they get to The Coast is write an abject excoriation of their place of origin, much like re-educated Communists confessing their crimes against the people.

Hidden Camera Catches CNN Producer Saying Trump ‘Probably Right’ About Russia ‘Witch Hunt’ [VIDEO]

27th June 2017

Read it. And watch the video.

A video released Tuesday by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas shows a CNN producer speaking candidly about the network’s coverage of President Trump and Russia.

In the hidden camera video, John Bonifield, a supervising producer at CNN Health, talks about how CNN uses the Trump-Russia allegations to boost ratings and how directions to focus on it have come from CNN’s CEO Jeff Zucker.

When asked by the Project Veritas reporter, “But honestly, you think the whole Russia shit is just like, bullshit?” Bonifield replies, “Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now. Like we, don’t have any big giant proof.”

When you catch the new Clerisy with the masks off, it gets very ugly.

A Party of Snobs

24th June 2017

Read it.

From conversations that I’ve had with some Trump voters in recent weeks, I was struck by how they viewed the Democratic Party as snobbish, elitist and looking down its nose at “average Americans.” And in conversations with some Clinton voters, I found confirmation for that view in the open disdain that the Clinton backers expressed toward the stupidity of anyone who voted for Trump. In other words, the Trump voters were not wrong to feel “dissed.”

It seems the Republicans – and Trump in particular – have done a better job in presenting themselves to these Middle Americans as respecting their opinions and representing their fears, even though the policies being pushed by Trump and the GOP still favor the rich and will do little good – and significant harm – to the middle and working classes.

By contrast, many of Hillary Clinton’s domestic proposals might well have benefited average Americans but she alienated many of them by telling a group of her supporters that half of Trump’s backers belonged in a “basket of deplorables.” Although she later reduced the percentage, she had committed a cardinal political sin: she had put the liberal disdain for millions of Americans into words – and easily remembered words at that.

By insisting that Hillary Clinton be the Democratic nominee – after leftist populist Bernie Sanders was pushed aside – the party also ignored the fact that many Americans, including many Democrats, viewed Clinton as the perfectly imperfect candidate for an anti-Establishment year with many Americans still fuming over the Wall Street bailouts and amid the growing sense that the system was rigged for the well-connected and against the average guy or gal.

In the face of those sentiments, the Democrats nominated a candidate who personified how a relatively small number of lucky Americans can play the system and make tons of money while the masses have seen their dreams crushed and their bank accounts drained. And Clinton apparently still hasn’t learned that lesson.

The New, Nearly Invisible Class Markers That Separate the American Elite From Everyone Else

21st June 2017

Read it.

An obsession with who is and who is not ‘elite’ invariably marks people who are definitely not.

Being wealthy has become so passé that rich people are increasingly choosing not to display that wealth—that’s the theory behind a new book exploring the changing consumption habits of rich people in the West.

Actually, the reality is that the finer things in life are so available to non-rich people that rich people just don’t have that much in the way of an opportunity to grind the faces of the poor into the dirt they way they used to (in proglodyte fantasies). Bill Gates and Joe Sixpack both drink the same Coke, eat the same fries, pee in the same kind of toilet, and use the same type of gas in their cars.

In her new book, The Sum of Small Things: A Theory of the Aspirational Class, Currid-Halkett takes aim at “Aspirationals”—the group that she sees as the new elite.

In other words, the people who are desperately afraid that they aren’t in the Upper Class, and so are going out of their way to find some means somehow to signal that they actually are. A bit of category confusion here.

Highly educated and defined by cultural capital rather than income bracket, these individuals earnestly buy organic, carry NPR tote bags, and breast-feed their babies. They care about discreet, inconspicuous consumption—like eating free-range chicken and heirloom tomatoes, wearing organic cotton shirts and TOMS shoes, and listening to the Serial podcast. They use their purchasing power to hire nannies and housekeepers, to cultivate their children’s growth, and to practice yoga and Pilates.

As I said, it’s all about signaling — mostly to yourself, to re-assure you that you are on the ‘right side of history’.

Still, Currid-Halkett’s book is an important glimpse into the decisions driving how today’s rich spend their money. And while it may be funny to joke about their yoga pants and affinity for kale, the rise of the “aspirational class” may have very real consequences. Perhaps most disturbing is Currid-Halkett’s conclusion that these consumption trends may exacerbate inequality. Increased spending by wealthy parents on education and health for their children, for example, may deepen class divides and limit opportunities for poorer kids.

Note the proglodyte axiom: Life is zero-sum, so if wealthy people spend more on their own kids it somehow ‘limits opportunities for poorer kids’.

Note the proglodyte axiom: Inequality is bad per se, so if you are better off but somebody else is even better off, then you are by definition worse off, even though in absolute terms you are better off. Ching! You’re a victim, and the taxpayers owe you money. Fork it over.

Why Can’t America Solve the Hunger Problem?

21st June 2017

Read it.

Note the Aggregation Fallacy: That there is some entity called ‘America’ whose job it is to solve the hunger ‘problem’. Typically this leads to calls for the Government to Take Action, with results (or, more accurately, lack of results) as you see them.

Note, too, the proglodyte axiom that Evil Corporations are somehow to blame for all the world’s ills.

We began to really embark on a charity approach as a more serious attempt to address what was considered to be an emergency at the time—which is why it was called the “emergency food system.” But that emergency never really went away. It just became institutionalized, and there’s been a permanent amount of food insecurity around the country since then. That’s one approach.

Elementary economics: If you provide stuff for free, the demand for such stuff increases to meet the available supply. Unless and until you run out of people who want more free stuff (which will never happen), you will never run out of people who want free stuff.

Another approach was welfare reform [under the] Clinton administration. That also reinforced the need for a charity approach because it lifted the government’s role in providing for basic income for the most impoverished people in the country.

Note another proglodyte axiom: If the government doesn’t Do Something, then nothing will get done.

Note another proglodyte axiom: It’s the government’s job to ‘provide for basic income for the most impoverished’. (Not food and other services; ‘basic income’ — i.e. free money)

Fisking the rest of this Crustian narrative is left as an exercise for the reader. (Don’t worry, it won’t be a challenge.)

Overpopulation Scaremongering Never Gets Old

19th June 2017

Read it.

The tiny land-locked African country of Lesotho is the poster child for the impending population explosion in the mind of journalist Eugene Linden.

In “Remember the Population Bomb? It’s Still Ticking,” an op-ed in the Sunday New York Times, Linden repeats a 40-year-old refrain: “Lesotho’s biggest problem probably was, and is, the obvious: too many people.”

Oh noes! The sky is falling! Women and minorities hardest hit! The planet will be destroyed!

Or maybe not:

How does Linden know that Lesotho is inhabited by “too many people”? The country’s population density is 176 people per square mile. But compare that to Malthusian hellholes like the United Kingdom (694 people per square mile); Germany (601 people); or the deities forfend, the Netherlands (2,852 people). In fact, the population density of the entire European Union is more than 300 people per square mile.

So I guess what he means is that Lesotho has too many black African people. But of course he can’t say that.

NY Daily News Writer Goes Nuts Over Scalise Shooting, Blames White People for It

16th June 2017

Read it.

In the wake of the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise on Wednesday, many liberal journalists and celebrities on Twitter and other social media sites began exploiting the tragedy, lobbying for gun control or bashing Republicans. But, New York Daily News commentator Shaun King chose specifically to blame white people for the incident. Embarking on a Twitter tirade he tweeted out the following,“Instead of white people, in general, taking the heat for James Hodgkinson, he is almost instantly being called a liberal radical.”

Maybe because he was. Bernie Sanders supporter, hates Trump, shoots Republicans — yeah, that says ‘liberal radical’ to me.

King gained worldwide notoriety back in 2015 when, as a Black Lives Matter activist, he was revealed to be white despite having previously identified himself as black.

He sure sounds black.

The NYT Is Straight-Up Lying About Sarah Palin and Gabby Giffords

15th June 2017

Read it.

That’s right: Yesterday a devoted Bernie Sanders supporter and virulent Republican-hater specifically targeted GOP congressmen for death, and the NYT’s response is to bring up a lie about Sarah Palin from six years ago.

There isn’t a shred of proof that Loughner ever even saw that map, let alone that it drove him to shoot those people. Fortunately for the left, no shred of proof is necessary. Once the narrative of the Magic Palin Map was set, within hours after the shooting, that was it. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it.

I don’t believe that the New York Times editorial board believes this. They know it’s not true. They’re lying, because they think the lie is necessary. In order to maintain the fiction that they’re the good guys, they need to twist this around and blame the people who are being physically attacked for their beliefs. As Ben Shapiro puts it: “The facts don’t match the narrative, so the facts must die a gruesome, slow death.”

No surprises here.

It’s all about the Narrative, Larry.

Media To America: Don’t Politicize An Obvious Act Of Political Violence

In the span of a few weeks, two crazed Bernie Sanders supporters have committed acts of violence against innocent Americans.

George Saunders Discusses the Importance of Talking to Trump Supporters

14th June 2017

Read it.

Author George Saunders last year dove headfirst into Republican heartland for a piece in the New Yorker entitled ‘Who are all these Trump supporters?’

Note that the approach is the same as he would use visiting some backwater in South America, Africa, or Asia.

To the Coastal Crust, ‘Trump supporters’ are some sort of alien species, with which no Normal Person would ever come in contact unless a special effort were made.

“I felt personally comfortable  doing it,” he told host Isaac Chotiner, “I felt like I could hang in for a long time with [Trump supporters] trying to understand it from their point of view, trying to put myself in their shoes without losing clarity.

The natives are very nice if you make an attempt to speak their language.

Of course, he could find a Trump supporter merely by talking to his apartment building’s doorman or the cabbie that drives him to work every day. But that would be a bit too close to home. Much better to pretend that they live in Flyover Country, and that one can come home at the end of the day and shake the dust of their towns off of one’s feet.

The Irrationality of It All

12th June 2017

ZMan pulls back the curtain.

The “incident” is the mass shooting by a Muslim fanatic at an Orlando homosexual club that resulted in hundreds wounded and 49 dead. Reading the Progressive media, you would not know that. The Washington Post wrote that “49 people died” as if they just fell over from some strange illness. The Orlando Sentinel has the decency to tell us how they died, but then insults everyone’s intelligence by claiming the motive is a mystery. The motive is clear to everyone, including the lunatics working at the Sentinel.

It’s a good reminder that the Progs relentlessly rewrite the past, even the very recent past, in order to fit the current narrative. Right now, they hilariously hold onto the idea of building an anti-white coalition that somehow includes homicidal Muslims and homosexuals, who Muslims hate almost as much as they hate Jews. To that end, they have set about writing out the Muslim antagonists from the stories about Muslim terrorism. Here we are a year after the event and they are blaming guns. In another year, the killer will be a white guy.
