While You Were Crying Over a Dead Ape, 125 Thousand Babies Were Just Murdered

30th May 2016

Matt Walsh brings the perspective – a big one, with spikes on it.

This weekend, our culture’s worship of animals and its cruel indifference to children finally came crashing together when a 4 year old child fell into the gorilla exhibit at the zoo in Cincinnati. Zoo officials were forced to shoot the ape to protect the kid. Many animal experts have agreed that the ape could have and probably would have killed the child at any moment — intentionally or unintentionally — leaving the zoo with no choice.

But that hasn’t been good enough for the peanut gallery. Scores of people have expressed outrage over the death of the gorilla, insisting that the zoo ought to have risked the child’s life in order to preserve the gorilla’s. There’s already been a shrine built to the ape, and tonight a candle light vigil is planned.

You can’t make this shit up.

So, just as I had to do when everyone was worked up about Cecil the Lion, I am forced to step in with two very basic observations: 1) That the child’s life is worth more than the gorilla’s, and it isn’t even close. I would kill a thousand gorillas to save one child. I would rather the entire species be wiped off the Earth than one human perish.

2) That 125 THOUSAND CHILDREN will be murdered through abortion TODAY, as we speak, all across the globe. There will be no vigils for them. There will be no shrines. There will be no “National Outrage.” The outrage will be confined to a very specific group of people called “pro-lifers,” but everyone else couldn’t care less. Or, even worse, they’re actually quite happy about it.

And there it is.

Why Are Blacks and Asians So Darned Mean to Each Other?

30th May 2016

Jim Goad is not afraid to ask the hard questions.

A horrifyingly racist Chinese detergent commercial threatens to drive even deeper wedges between the black and Asian communities, further impeding their righteous mission of uniting as people of color toward their natural common enemy—namely, the white community.

In what is being billed as “The most racist Chinese laundry detergent commercial you’ll see all year,” a black man toting a paintbrush and paint bucket with his face and shirt smeared with fresh paint wanders into a room to discover a sultry Chinese woman motioning for him to come hither. As he leans in for a kiss, she jams a detergent packet in his mouth, shoves him into the washing machine, and sits atop it gleefully while he screams in pain. She then appears spellbound as a gleamingly light-skinned Asian male emerges from the washing machine, cleansed of all his blackness.

CNN called the commercial “staggeringly offensive.” You should watch it. It’s pretty cool.

Britain First Leader Paul Golding Arrested During Party Campaign in Leicester

28th May 2016

Read it.

The leader of Britain First, Paul Golding, has been arrested after the party were surrounded by protestors during a campaign in Leicester city centre.

Golding and around 20 Britain First activists set up a stand handing out party leaflets in Gallowtree Gate on Saturday.

Pictures uploaded on social media, as well as videos by Britain First, show angry crowds of protestors gathered near the stand chanting “losers”.

Leicester City mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, reportedly confronted Golding during the demonstration saying: “This is a multi racial city and you are not welcome here. I have a mandate from 77,000 voters and I say on their behalf, leave Leicester,” Leicester Mercury reports.

We always knew that freedom of speech isn’t a Muslim value. Now we know that it’s no longer a British value either.

More Anti-Trump Rioting, in San Diego This Time

The Administration has been egging on urban unrest by blacks, which has already led to two outbreaks of undocumented shopping in Ferguson and a big one in Baltimore. And the media have been urging on anti-Trump rioting by supporters of illegal immigration, as we saw again this week. The press has been spinning the anti-Trump mobs as Trump is causing the violence against his own supporters, but in an age when smartphone video goes viral, that kind of propaganda power is harder to maintain than in the past.

Chicago’s Murder Problem

28th May 2016

Steve Sailer connects the dots.

A big factor is that the nice white liberal Democrats of New York defeated five consecutive Democratic candidates for Mayor from 1993 through 2009, instead electing crime-fighters Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg. You can see Bloomberg’s stop-and-frisk program in the graph below of “Change in Weapons Cases Since 2001.” While there is a lot that the Democratic politicians of Chicago can get away with, what with being Democrats and all, they can’t get away with that.

Angry residents posted dozens of photos of the carnage on the township’s Facebook page, too late to save 11 acres of maple, ash and oak from the chainsaw.

At Harvard, Leftist Professors Inspire Leftist Students to “Rebel”

27th May 2016

Read it.

A common political strategy among environmentalists is called “sue and settle.” An environmental group will sue the EPA, alleging a failure to do one thing or another, likely something that wasn’t within the EPA’s powers in the first place. The lawsuit is collusive, so, after a decent interval, the EPA will agree to a settlement that results in a court order requiring EPA to do something that it wanted to do all along. This technique is wholly corrupt, but effective.

Something similar is at work when leftist students mount protests at leftist universities. Radical students make demands to which radical administrators are only too glad to accede. I have sometimes wondered, is the whole thing a put-up deal? Was the supposed protest against a “reactionary” administration set up with radical professors or administrators from the beginning?

Usually, we have no way to know. But at Harvard Law School, the truth is leaking out: left-wing students met with left-wing professors to plan their supposedly adversarial demands on the school.

Yeah, well, Harvard.

How an Industry Helps Chinese Students Cheat Their Way Into and Through U.S. Colleges

26th May 2016

Read it.

The Iowa cheating rings are the latest evidence of how a vibrant East Asian industry is corrupting the U.S. higher education system by gaming entrance exams, concocting college applications and completing college coursework on behalf of students. These nimble operators not only help students cheat their way into universities. They also help them cheat their way through.

The companies are prospering by exploiting two intersecting interests: the growing demand by Chinese nationals to study overseas, and the desire by U.S. colleges to profit from foreign students willing to pay full tuition.

Do Not Call List: Congratulations! You Lost.

26th May 2016

Read it.

Once upon a time, way back in 2003, the federal government set up a list where Americans could register their phone numbers, and telemarketers could no longer call them. It was the National Do Not Call Registry, and it was glorious.

And it really worked—and then, one day, sometime around 2010 or 2011, it didn’t.

The problem is not that the government isn’t enforcing the Do Not Call list. It’s not that it isn’t upholding laws banning automated calls to cellphones. Instead, it’s that telecom giants could take more steps to make life better for customers, and they haven’t. And to top it all off, their lack of aggressive action has allowed the government to take the bulk of the blame. “If you want to be mad at someone,” says Tim Marvin, the campaign manager for the Consumers Union’s End Robocalls campaign, “call your phone company.”

Of course Slate, Voice of the Crust, can’t blame government; that would be contrary to the Narrative.

So how do we end the madness? The Consumers Union, the famed consumer advocacy organization, claims it would be possible for phone companies to offer their consumers easy access to services such as Nomorobo, which works on VoIP lines to block most robocalls. Then there are apps that would make a serious dent in robocalls to cellphones—which is a good thing, since the vast majority of automated calls to cellphones are illegal thanks to a 1991 law, whether or not the number is listed on the Do Not Call registry.

Noborobo is available for free to consumers right now. Why do companies need to ‘offer’ something?

Commencement Season

25th May 2016

Thomas Sowell looks at the new clerisy.

Two themes seem to dominate Commencement speeches. One is shameless self-advertising by people in government, or in related organizations supported by the taxpayers or donors, saying how nobler it is to be in “public service” than working in business or other “selfish” activities.

In other words, the message is that it is morally superior to be in organizations consuming output produced by others than to be in organizations which produce that output. Moreover, being morally one-up is where it’s at.

The second theme of many Commencement speakers, besides flattering themselves that they are in morally superior careers, is to flatter the graduates that they are now equipped to go out into the world as “leaders” who can prescribe how other people should live.

In other words, young people, who in most cases have never had either the sobering responsibility and experience of being self-supporting adults, are to tell other people — who have had that responsibility and that experience for years — how they should live their lives.

In so far as the graduates go into “public service” in government, whether as bureaucrats or as aides to politicians or judges, they are to help order other people around.

The Mexico Way

25th May 2016

Steve Sailer reminds us of some history.

Clearly, Trump is accusing the Mexican ruling class—the politicians and billionaires like Carlos Slim, the largest single shareholder of The New York Times—of dumping their surplus population on the United States.

Just as the Saudi royal family protects itself by dispatching its young Muslim fanatics to preach jihad in Europe, Castañeda asserted that Mexico’s ferocious inequality is made tolerable only by illegal emigration to the U.S. Without the open border, Mexico would dissolve into another revolution as vicious as the one a century ago that killed at least a million and sent refugees pouring into Texas.

You might think that this question of what would happen in Mexico would be a subject of intense concern to American elites. Instead it doesn’t really seem to come up much.

One reason that nobody in the U.S. pays attention to Mexico is because Mexican elites have wanted it that way.

Nationwide Crime Wave Confirms the Ferguson Effect

25th May 2016

Read it.

Heather Mac Donald, writing in the Wall Street Journal, describes the crime wave that is sweeping the nation, and attributes much of it to the Ferguson effect. She notes that even some who initially denied the Ferguson effect now admit that the phenomenon is real.

Mac Donald points to Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri, St. Louis, who was an early and influential critic of the Ferguson effect. Rosenfeld changed his mind after taking a closer look at the worsening crime statistics. “The only explanation that gets the timing right is a version of the Ferguson effect,” Rosenfeld said recently. “These aren’t flukes or blips, this is a real increase.”

Mac Donald also points to a study in the Journal of Criminal Justice. It found that homicides in the 12 months after the Michael Brown shooting rose significantly in cities with large black populations and already high rates of violence. This is precisely what the Ferguson effect would predict.

No peace, no justice.

Scientists Have Discovered What Causes ‘Resting Bitch Face’

23rd May 2016

Well, thank goodness.

Among the slew of pop culture icons said to be afflicted with so-called Resting Bitch Face (alternatively known as Bitchy Resting Face), the vast majority are women, though Kanye West is among the male examples. All of them have been mocked by Internet commenters for having a certain unintentional expression when their faces are not in motion  — a look best described as vaguely annoyed, maybe a little judgy, perhaps slightly bored.

Hillary Clinton.

The cues are understated, yet the machine detects and interprets them the same way our human brains do, she said. “Something in the neutral expression of the face is relaying contempt, both to the software and to us.”

Yup, Hillary Clinton.

Facebook Is Helping the Left to Eat Itself

22nd May 2016

Even Brits are noticing.

As the Washington Post highlighted, liberals are more likely to unfriend you over politics. I suspect that they are also less likely to have conservative friends than vice versa, and are less tolerant overall on social media. This may perhaps be because the liberal-left is now the prestige, established faith of the western world, so its adherents are naturally more likely to feel theirs is the one true way, and less likely to meet people their own age with different views.  It doesn’t help, of course, that the social justice-loving Facebook has been politically curating their stories, as one former staffer admitted, because ‘they had a bias’.

The last decade has seen a huge increase in websites and articles pushing a social justice political slant, among the biggest being Salon and the Huffington Post. As the years have gone by their articles and headlines have become increasing shrill and bizarre, since shrill and bizarre is what people share on social media.

Nile crocodiles captured in South Florida

20th May 2016

Read it.

Researchers have confirmed that three Nile crocodiles were captured near Miami, and they say it’s possible more of the man-eating reptiles are still out there, although no one can say for sure.

The big question now: How did they get to Florida?

“They didn’t swim from Africa,” University of Florida herpetologist Kenneth Krysko said. “But we really don’t know how they got into the wild.”

Krysko, who works at UF’s Florida Museum of Natural History, said the captured crocodiles matched genetically, meaning they are related to one another, but didn’t match Nile crocs kept at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and other licensed Florida attractions. That means the crocs probably were brought to Florida illegally by an unlicensed reptile collector who either didn’t contain them properly, allowing them to escape, or, more sinisterly, planted them in the Everglades in hopes they would multiply.

Trump’s Problem With Women

19th May 2016

Ann Coulter is the Mikhail Baryshnikov of sarcasm.

First — and this is corroborated by five contemporaneous witnesses — in 1978, Trump violently raped Juanita Broaddrick in a Little Rock, Arkansas, hotel room, then, as he was leaving, looked at her bloody lip and said, “Better put some ice on that” — oh wait, I’m terribly sorry. Did I say Trump? I didn’t mean Trump, I meant Bill Clinton.
Hang on — here we go! Knowing full well about Bill Clinton’s proclivity to sexually assault women, about three weeks after that rape, Trump cornered Broaddrick at a party and said, pointedly, “I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate the things you do for him. Do you understand? Everything you do.”

No! My mistake! That wasn’t Trump either. That was Hillary Clinton. … But this next one I’m sure was Trump.

Six people initially were hospitalized after the crash, though three were subsequently released and arrested. Three passengers ran from the vehicle soon after impact, but authorities tracked them down and arrested them after a brief manhunt.

Democrats Get With the Program, Continued

16th May 2016

Read it.

What happens when a party that specializes in riotous suppression of opposing opinions has an internal squabble?

Organizers of the Nevada State Democratic Convention said they had to rush to wrap up the “unruly and unpredictable” event on Saturday after security became an issue and objects, including chairs, were being thrown.

State party officials said authorities at the Paris casino in Las Vegas informed them around 10 p.m. that they could no longer provide the necessary security for the event, where tensions between Bernie Sanders supporters and party leaders flared up. The convention was scheduled to end at 7 p.m.

Sanders supporters have accused state party leaders of rigging the process against them, and they objected to procedural votes to approve the rules of the event. They also questioned a credentials committee’s disqualification of 58 would-be Sanders delegates, who state party officials said didn’t provide evidence about their identities or weren’t registered to vote as Democrats by a May 1 deadline.

In other words, they objected to being treated like Republicans. Can’t say that I blame them.

Sanders supporters upset with the proceedings staged a protest outside the Nevada State Democratic Party headquarters on Sunday, writing in sidewalk chalk “Roberta Lange murdered democracy” and “Fire Roberta.” Officials also said Lange had received hundreds of phone calls and text messages, including death threats, after her cellphone number was posted on social media.

Apparently two can play at the ‘treat your opponents as if they were Republicans’ game. Pass the popcorn.

NYT: “Murder Rates Jump in Many Major U.S. Cities, New Data Shows”

13th May 2016

Steve Sailer connects the dots.

You’ll note that almost all of these cities are run by Democrats.

Another thing that might be going on is that the Mexican heroin dealers have started pushing smack in the big cities, stirring up the black gangs. Sam Quinones’s book Dreamland reported that about a half decade ago, Mexican heroin dealers were concentrating on selling heroin in white rural areas because nobody important in America much cares about white hillbillies quietly dying of overdoses (you’ll notice that nobody talked about the White Death in the media until the new Nobel Economics laureate Angus Deaton brought it up right after he won his award). But, according to Quinones, back then Mexican heroin retailers considered African Americans to be hotheaded and violent and thus to be avoided.

But that kind of prudence among foreign drug dealers can seldom last, and now Mexican heroin is spreading to black ghettos, with predictable results in terms of blacks shooting blacks.

The Partnership Between Colleges and Helicopter Parents

13th May 2016

Read it.

Parents of college students are rarely studied. However, many U.S. universities, particularly those lacking the deep pockets and extensive resources of elite privates, have come to rely on parents to fill numerous financial, advisory, and support functions.

Most—but not all—of the parents in my sample fell neatly into several categories. About two-fifths were “helicopter” parents like Andrea and Alexis, regarded in the media as among the most reviled figures of 21st-century parenting—pesky interlopers who test the patience of school officials, meddle with university affairs, and raise a generation of “coddled,” “entitled,” and “under-constructed” youth.

We couldn’t have bad schools without bad parenting.

Yet intensive parenting is, in many ways, a logical response to the harsh risks facing young people during college and early adulthood. Increasing income inequality, high rates of young-adult unemployment, and a decline in stable and well-paying entry-level jobs loom threateningly in the foreground. Declines in state and federal support for higher education, coupled with rising administrative costs in a complex regulatory environment, have led to skyrocketing tuition. Additionally, the sheer diversity of academic and social options, particularly at large public universities, makes it easy for college students to make costly mistakes. Involved parents provide insurance against risk.

And so-called ‘journalists’ who perform as enablers — such as this one.

The “Cowboys Club” will be the first private club associated with a pro sports team. An exclusive country club for elite fanboys, the space offers up-close access to Dallas Cowboys team members and a unique vantage point for watching practice games.

Jones famously got the city of Arlington to pay for his new luxury-box-crammed football stadium. Arlington, home to the University of Texas at Arlington, is apparently thereby infected with Stupid Liberal Syndrome. (Yes, they exist, even in Texas.)
