Why stop at defunding police?

 The Dips want to defund the entire Canadian Armed Forces.

The policy resolution titled “Elimination of the Canadian Armed Forces” was submitted by the party’s Spadina-Fort York Electoral District Association (EDA). 

It claims that “in a world with a globalized economy traditional militaries are becoming increasingly unnecessary” and points to other countries like Costa Rica and Iceland which have allegedly “abolished their armies.” 

“An NDP government will commit to phasing out the Canadian Armed Forces,” the policy resolution states. “All members of the Canadian Armed Forces will be retrained, at the expense of the federal government, into civil service roles that help expand Canadian, provincial and municipal social services, such as expanded health care, education, community services, public transit and parks.”

This is the type of thing that passes for "intellectual conversation" in Toronto these days. No word on what their plan is if the Russians start mining uranium in the Yukon and leaving an eco-unfriendly mess. Strongly worded letter, probably.

That sound you hear is my eyes rolling.

Did you think they would stop with Dr. Seuss?

No, not really. I figured they'd test the waters with Dr. Seuss and then put the pedal to the metal.

And they did. The new racist emergency is The Adventures of Ook and Gluck. No, I'm not making this up.
 
Cancelled!

On Monday, March 22, 2021, with the full support of Dav Pilkey, Scholastic halted distribution of the 2010 book The Adventures of Ook and Gluk. Together, we recognize that this book perpetuates passive racism. We are deeply sorry for this serious mistake. Scholastic has removed the book from our websites, stopped fulfillment of any orders (domestically or abroad), contacted our retail partners to explain why this book is no longer available, and sought a return of all inventory.

Dav Pilkey is the author of Captain Underpants. His caveman book has been circulating for 12 years without any concern. I'll add that 2010 was a year I remember pretty well, and I don't recall it being super racist. More the reverse, people walking on eggshells to avoid offending anyone. So, not having read anything but the blurb, I expect anyone who read it would be wondering what the "passive racism" was. Nobody is saying anything, which is usual for this type of thing.

Then there's this:

Throughout our 100 year history, we have learned that trust must be won every day by total vigilance.

(Emphasis mine, obviously.) That reads like the type of overblown rhetoric one expects from Pravda circa 1955. "Total vigilance!!!!" forsooth. Reading the reviews at Amazon, all the one and two stars are Karen complaining about the caveman spelling. There are -zero- complaints that the book shows racism that I saw, but I did not read all 2128 of the four-and-a-half-out-of-five star ratings.

Another SJW shirtstorm, basically. Really ramping up the cancellation machine, my friends.

When he finally pees his pants on TV...

Apparently the official Whitehouse website says this is the Biden-Harris Administration.

The White House is reportedly urging staffers in all federal agencies refer to the current administration as "the Biden-Harris Administration," a leaked email from a federal employee reveals.

"Please be sure to reference the current administration as the 'Biden-Harris Administration' in official public communications," a top White House communications official wrote.  "Biden-Harris Administration" was accented in bold.

Indeed, on the White House website, the administration is referred to as "The Biden-Harris Administration."

That's because Mr. Sniffer can't find the bathroom on his own.

It'll be the Harris-Biden Administration when the Depends give up during a speech. Or when he falls all the way down the fucking stairs of Airforce One. I'd be more disgusted at them for the obvious elder abuse if he wasn't the guy that he is.

"#BelieveAllWomen... except the ones groped by the Sniffer. Don't listen to those bitches, they're lying!"

Sure thing, mass media. Yep, we totally believe ya. Uh huh. That's right for sure.

I bet you didn't know...

...that Biden wiped out on the stairs of Airforce One on Friday. Yep. The old man nearly ate it on Friday. Three times! Down on his hands and knees on the stairs, nearly face-planted. Then he nearly fell again getting in the door of the airplane.

And you did not hear about it at all. Nobody said shit on the news. Instagram banned people from posting the video

Ask yourself, when was the last time the President stumbling wasn't front-page news? I'll tell you. Since Gerald Ford was president. 

I love it when they lie like this. It's so stupidly obvious, they're punching themselves in the face.

Dr. Seuss books to be removed from eBay.

 Moving ahead with the effort to make literally everything in life problematic, the screeching about Dr. Seuss books has led eBay to scrub them from it's service.

Online marketplace eBay Inc. EBAY -2.31% said it is working to prevent the resale of six Dr. Seuss books that were pulled earlier this week by the company in charge of the late author’s works because they contain offensive imagery.

“EBay is currently sweeping our marketplace to remove these items,” a spokeswoman for the company said in an email. New copies of the six books were no longer for sale online at major retailers such as Barnes & Noble on Thursday afternoon, which put eBay among the most prominent platforms for the books to be sold.

Hundreds of listings for the six books could be found on the platform as of Thursday morning, though the number appeared to be lower than it was on Wednesday evening. The eBay spokeswoman said that it would take some time to review seller listings and that the company was monitoring newly published listings.

  Just to reiterate: you can buy Mein Kampf on eBay. But not On Beyond Zebra.

Freedom of speech inconvenient! US government hides report.

Look at those NAZIS!!! The nerve of them, staying between the ropes like that!

Further to the banning of conservative people and organizations on Twitter, Youtube, Farcebook etc. and further to the shuttering of Baen's Bar in the face of a de-platforming attack by the Left, a new government report has come out saying that:

 talking shit on the internet does not increase hate crimes. Like we needed a freakin' official report to know that. 

And they hid the report.

Freedom of speech on the internet did not lead to a rise in “hate crimes,” according to a report sent from the U.S. Department of Commerce to Congress in January — a report that has yet to appear on any government website.

Breitbart News has obtained a copy of the report, which is published in full below. But sources close to the government say they are baffled as to why it wasn’t released publicly after being sent to Congress.

The report was prepared by the Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), which is responsible for advising the President on all matters related to telecommunication and the internet.

It was drafted to revise the findings of a previous report from NTIA in 1993 titled The Role of Telecommunications in Hate Crimes. Although it was prepared under the Trump administration, the request to revise the report came from the 116th Congress, which was controlled by a 35-seat Democrat majority in the House and only a slim Republican majority in the Senate.

The 1993 report is still publicly available on the web. But the latest revision to its findings is not.

Sources who were close to the drafting and approval process suspect that bureaucrats and establishment politicians with a vested interest in the “hate crimes” panic are trying to suppress it, because its conclusions challenge popular media narratives alleging a rise in internet-inspired hate crimes.

There is an awful lot of government effort going into making people shut up these days. The nice thing about this is it is so easy to thwart. All you have to do is talk. Be loud, be proud my friends.

And to all you little weasels with your deplatforming campaigns, your virtue signalling and your "if it only saves one life!" bullshit, you're liars. And we know that you know it.

So all you liars whining about Dr. Seuss and JK Rowling and Baens Bar, just know that we can see you lying.

Te-Nahisi Coates, the new Kryptonite?

 J.J. Abrhams seems to have decided that Superman must die. He's hired race-baiting, whiteman-hating Te Nahisi Coates to stick the shiv in.

There is a new, powerful and moving Superman story yet to be told. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with the brilliant Mr. Coates to help bring that story to the big screen, and we’re beyond thankful to the team at Warner Bros. for the opportunity,” said J.J. Abrams in the statement to S&A.

According to sources, the project is being set up as a Black Superman story. This is something that the studio has been trying to wrap its head around for months, if not a year or two. Michael B. Jordan tried to develop a Black Superman project when he first arrived at the studio with his deal in 2019, but that did not go very far at the time, according to sources. It is possible that the studio could return to him to star down the line.

Coates is a superstar author whose books include We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy, The Beautiful Struggle, The Water Dancer and Between the World and Me, the latter of which was adapted by HBO. In the comic book space, he has worked on Captain America and Black Panther, with Disney’s Bob Iger crediting his influential run on the latter in the decision to greenlight the groundbreaking film starring Chadwick Boseman.

To be clear, Mr. Coates's work on Captain America, Black Panther and Black Panther & The Crew was a colossal failure, resulting in the cancellation of those comics due to lack of sales. And when I say lack of sales, I'm understating things rather steeply. Nobody bought those comics.

Phantom prediction: This movie will suck. It'll suck like a black hole in the middle of a neutron galaxy. It'll suck the whole friggin' DC universe in and we'll never see it again. Because nothing escapes a black hole.

That's what will finally kill Superman. Boredom. The one thing deadlier than green kryptonite.

"SHUT UP!" they explained. Conservative commentators "gateway" to "extremism."

Speech is violence, y'know.

 

Further to the closing of Baen's Bar due to one (1) guy claiming (screaming) fascism and extremist views, a peek at the wider picture.

The wider picture is basically Leftists screaming "SHUT UP!" at everyone not on their side.

Exhibit A, the Anti-Defamation League:

The five authors of the Anti-Defamation League study titled “Exposure to Alternative & Extremist Content on YouTube” investigated the idea that YouTube’s algorithm radicalizes those on the right. The study’s list of “alternative” YouTube channels that may lead to radical content included mainstream conservative commentators like The Daily Wire founder Ben Shapiro and comedian Steven Crowder, and widely popular members of the “Intellectual Dark Web” (IDW) like podcast host Joe Rogan and author and clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson.

The authors of the study stated:  “We find that exposure to alternative YouTube channels that can serve as gateways to more extreme forms of content and to extremist or white supremacist channels is disturbingly common among a group of Americans.”


Yes, listening to Jordan Peterson's youtube videos will radicalize young men and make them go invade the Capitol building and kill fluffy bunnies. Okay? That's where we are. Won't someone save the poor bunnies?

This in the same week where you can read Leftists dancing in Rush Limbaugh's blood all over the internet. 

Exhibit B, Amazon bans select books. Guess which ones:

Sometime before this week, when it removed from its digital shelves a book critical of transgender ideology, Amazon altered its content policy to explicitly forbid books that promote "hate speech," a major rule change that could be used to rationalize action against a broader range of books sold by the digital retail giant.

Amazon this week yanked "When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Movement" from its main web store, its Kindle servers and its audiobook lineup with no explanation, even as the book had been available on the site for three years with no apparent controversy. 

In the 2018 book, author and political philosopher Ryan Anderson draws on years of scientific research and data to criticize the prevailing approach to transgender issues in modern medicine. The book "exposes the contrast between the media's sunny depiction of gender fluidity and the often sad reality of living with gender dysphoria," according to its sales blurb. 

Anderson told Just the News that he had received no explanation for the ban.

Reached for comment by Just the News, Amazon declined to provide any explanation, offering instead a link to its book content policy.

They've banned a bunch more books questioning the transgender thing, not much notice being given to it by the greater culture. All 100% in line with the US DemocRat Party push since stealing the US eleection.

Just in case you were wondering when they're going to go at it, this is it. They're going. This is the hill they've chosen to die on, metaphorically speaking of course.
