International Without a Woman Day or Whatever…

Yet another shockingly dumb “movement” thing from liberals. And of course it is adopted and whitewashed by politicians, news media and other cultural arbiters as harmless as Arbor Day (but also incredibly important too!!!!).

Believe it or not, a local school system, City of Alexandria (Va.), is giving the students the day off.

Not surprisingly, either, The U.N. is all for it and involved, along with many useless parasite NGOs.

Being left out of all this by our cultural commissars are the hardcore left organizers. Gee, I wonder why?

Lessee, a convicted Palestinian terrorist and the ubiquitous human communist/racist cancer, Angela Davis are involved. And somehow our watchdog media missed this.

Eh, maybe not. Most of them like Angie Davis and they are cool with Palestinian terrorists too (so long as they concentrate on killing Israelis).

Check out these exposés on the march/day leaders from the New York Post, Legal Insurrection, Blue Lives Matter and Front Page.

Hey, how about a Day Without Men? You know, no cops (the serious ones, ya’ know); no firemen (the serious ones, ya’ know); no military (the serious ones, ya’ know); no repairmen; no contractors; no serious outdoor laborers; a serious curtailment of business; etc.

No, you say? Yeah, the idea is absurd. Most men don’t play such nonsense…

The Might of Idiocy

Here’s a little Thanksgiving untreat — the dumbest story of the year. It is revelatory of how stupid a large portion of America is and how polluted our cultural and educational system has become.

Hilary Duff, a B List actress and singer who had some success as a teen on, I think, the Disney Channel back in the 1990s, went to a Hollywood costume party dressed as a Pilgrim and her boyfriend accompanied her as an Indian.

Admittedly, the saucy outfit wasn’t exactly what real Pilgrim’s would have worn (a bit much leg, ahem), but harmless enough. The Indian outfit was a typical buckskin and feathers outfit, relatively historically accurate. The beard was a bit off since Indians don’t sport beards.

But of course, as with everything under the sun, libtards had to freak out and turn it into an issue. Apparently self-appointed libtard cultural commissars have declared dressing as a Pilgrim and an Indian to be not acceptable. In fact such activity seems to be equated with a major crime.

An example of such idiocy is Hilary Duff And Boyfriend Offend With Racist Pilgrim And Native American Costumes,” from professional clown HuffPo’s Colby Delbyck.

Young master Colby declares these to be “the worst couples costume ever.” I rather doubt that. People have dressed as Adolph Hitler and Eva Braun, as various grotesque diseases, Jack-the-Ripper and victim, etc. Ah, the libtard, everything is such an extreme.

Then Commissar Colby asserts, “cultures are not a costume.” Really? Then what would a costume be? Costumes have long been defined by various cultures. They are often identifiers of particular cultures and subcultures. Colby, were you awake in anthropology class?

Sadly, it is ignorant fools like Colby (named after a cheese, which is a cultural thing, too), who provide cultural material to people. Readers might assume that the writers of such material are somewhat informed but they would be disappointed. Most writer/reporters today are shockingly ignorant of even the basics. But that doesn’t stop them from going into overdrive on almost everything. They seem to try to make up for their ignorance with passion (usually anger).

Colby somehow drags in protests over a pipeline in North Dakota. Like I said, the libtard will politicize everything because in their shallow minds, everything is connected. Halloween Party Costume=Oil Pipeline Protest.

Such mentality used to be recognized as a mental defect, or simply sloppy thinking. Today it is the pure form of libtard intellect.

Amusingly, Colby insists that Hilary and beau have committed “racist” offenses, unaware that Pilgrims aren’t a race. But then “racist” doesn’t mean what it used to, being nothing more than an invective hurled these days wantonly like “dummy.”

As for the legions of people allegedly being offended, I doubt anyone not with a hypersensitive nitro glycerine-level of offense-seeking was remotely moved by these costumes. If anything, I’m offended by the infantilism of people like Colby. Humanity is doomed with folks as moronic as Colby (and so many others whining) proliferating.

I realize that “Pilgrims” have been declared politically incorrect and there’s an attempt to distort their history and expunge them from their important role in American history. That’s very sad and doesn’t say anything positive about the folks doing the purging — including large numbers of supposedly “educated” people and people responsible for educating the next generations.

Needless to say, the average Pilgrim, women and children included, are easily twice the man as people like Colby and the typical Pajama Boy libtard of today. Colby and his ilk would have lasted about 8 seconds in 1620 North America.

Actually he would have never survived the voyage. In fact, he would never have had the intellectual fiber to be the independent thinking, deep believer in God that the Pilgrims were. People like Colby need coddling mother government, fueled by the fruits of people Colby hates, to keep him living in the luxury he so deplores in others.

Furthermore, Colby would not be enjoying the life he leads now were it not for people like the Pilgrims. Ingrate is too weak a word to describe the libtard of today. It is a grain of sand on a vast beach of ingratitude and hypocrisy.

In addition, weak, easily moved minds loathe those who have deep beliefs. The believer is to be mocked by those subsumed in neverending doubt papered over by conceit and arrogance.

But back to the main point. Why can’t people like Colby let others wear what they wish to a harmless costume party? These very same judges eagerly shout down anyone commenting on “slut-wear” sold to children for everyday clothing. “Do not judge!” they intone as they immediately rush to judgment.

Why the constant public trials and the eventual pressure to make Duff grovel like a penitente from the ages of the Spanish Inquisition?

Ah, but that is just the point, it is an inquisition; a modern inquisition, conducted by a religious movement which deludes itself that it is not a religion.

These people are stoking a cultural war.

In Sac-Town Year of the Monkey Is Politically Incorrect

You just can’t parody the left any longer. People who want to be “offended” are lacking things to be offended about they will look everywhere to find offense…

Example: Sacramento Kings player DeMarcus Cousins. His team was going to giveaway t-shirts celebrating the Chinese New Year; this new year being the Year of the Monkey. Celebrating Chinese New Year has been a long-time tradition in the Bay Area.

But things are different these days. DeMarcus was offended by the t-shirt. A couple of other “African-Americans” decided that they were offended by the shirts, too. So if a certain select group of people are offended by anything, well, everyone has to drop what they are doing and reorient themselves to accommodate those gentle souls… Here’s more on this infuriating story.

So apparently Year of the Monkey and the Chinese calendar have to delay themselves while “Black History Month” plays out. Those Chinese guys thinking up the calendar thousands of years ago should have planned better!

Can’t these people just look the other way? Live and let live? Rise above the irritants that others would find petty (or nonexistent)? Sadly, for the politically correct, the answer is no. To them, everything is political; a battle to be won and enemies everywhere to be defeated.

One last point. People who view everything through a racial prism are racists. Cousins may not see himself as a racist but he is one.

Using Sports for Propaganda

I caught part of Purdue’s drubbing of Rutgers in basketball on Martin Luther King Day on the Big Ten Network. One of the “traditional” practices of MLK Day sports events is the patronizing exercise of reciting uplifting hagiographies of famous black people during breaks.

It may have been Kevin Kugler that was calling the game when the play-by-play man went into the story of Paul Robeson, a Rutgers alum. Not surprisingly he listed Robeson’s extraordinary talents — athlete, scholar, actor, singer and activist.

Then he went into a sugar-coating of Robeson’s political activities, described simply as “taking an interest in civil rights” that was brutally curtailed by blacklisting in the “McCarthy era.”

It’s a little bit more complicated than that. Robeson had mental problems, which manifested themselves later in life. That he had been treated occasionally badly early in life was not questionable but Robeson took everything very personally and was incapable of overcoming confrontations or slights. Combining a hefty personal arrogance and inability to compromise Robeson ping-ponged around intellectually and geographically for years, eventually developing a hatred for the United States and naive love for Marxism. The Soviet Union and its minions (notably East Germany) used him like a mason uses a trowel. He didn’t resist and became marginalized and insignificant, even to many left-leaning Americans. It was a sad waste of great talents.

Robeson’s life is too complicated to be condensed into a 60-second squib written by a PR flack at an American university. It’s sad that viewers were treated to disinformation, with the predictable attack on the “McCarthy era” and hagiographic treatment of someone who was no angel.

It’s the Great PC Halloween, Charlie Brown!

Is there no safe zone from liberal hectoring?

Perhaps you’ve heard of the PC-wave sweeping Halloween this year.

True that Halloween has been going downhill for years, much of that due to the fear (warranted and unwarranted) of psychos out to harm children but another harm is out there — political correctness.

I’ll start with the Department of Energy. Yes, they’ve wormed themselves into Halloween in yet another attempt to justify their phony-baloney jobs. Powerline has the details.

Talk about an agency that needs shutting down…

Of course, PC Central, is our college campuses and with Halloween, many step up to the plate. Check out these stories of Onion-like absurdity at Middlebury College, SUNY Geneseo and Wesleyan University, along with a pair of good roundups at Reason and Breitbart. There’s many more — just search anything along the lines of Halloween, college, political correctness, etc.

Just think — these busybody college administrators have actual jobs, high-paying ones at America’s “elite” educational institutions. They are affecting the next generation (and at an expensive price to boot!). Most of these clowns (that should be their Halloween costume) are involved in those schools’ “Diversity” departments. More phony-baloney jobs.

They simply can’t leave people alone to simply have some harmless fun. They must politicize everything. They are like The Terminator — he will never stop until he gets what he wants or is destroyed.
