Another week and another dive into the demented, deranged of the Leftist culture warriors who never cease to amaze.  To wit, the seven best (in my opinion) of the last week:

A Truly Inspiring Story

Let’s start with an inspiring story.  Kenneth Connin is a 27-year-old quadriplegic who suffered a spinal cord injury when he was 18.  That did not deter him from achieving his lifelong dream.  Claiming he always wanted to have homosexual sex on the Internet, Connin got his wish courtesy of Pierce Paris, a veteran of the porn industry.  Said Connin: “I’m proud of what I’m doing and who I am and I think everyone else should be too.”  Unfortunately, when it comes to liberal rhetoric, many take it literally.  Hence, perversion, degradation and degeneracy somehow become “legitimate.”  Here’s to quadriplegic homosexuals everywhere.

We Have an Alyssa Milano Sighting

Not really a sighting, but the D-list actress and Twitter terrorist recently took to social media.  In reaction to the fake news story about the Covington Catholic School and that Indian with the rhythm, Milano claimed the red MAGA hats worn by the students were the equivalent of white hoods worn by the KKK in bygone days.  She proves, once again, the definition of the word “bimbo,” giving Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a run for the money for that dubious honor.

Another Ghostbusters Reboot

Hot off the previous all-female dumpster fire which was the previous remake of “Ghostbusters,” news comes that another one is in the works.  This did not sit well with the infinitely unfunny and questionably female star of the last remake, Leslie Jones.  The “comedienne” who laughs at her own jokes to signal to the rest of us that she just told a joke took to Twitter with this classic rant:

So insulting. Like f*** us. We dint count. It’s like something trump would do. (Trump voice)”Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women ain’t ghostbusteeeeers” ugh so annoying. Such a d**k move. And I don’t give f*** I’m saying something!!

Enough said….  I really can’t add much.  The statement speaks for itself.

Notre Dame Goes Politically Correct

A mural of Christopher Columbus has been covered.  I’ll let president John Jenkins explain in his own words:

The murals by Luigi Gregori that adorn the ceremonial entrance to Notre Dame’s Main Building depict the life and exploration of Christopher Columbus. …In recent years, however, many have come to see the murals as at best blind to the consequences of Columbus’ voyage for the indigenous peoples who inhabited this ‘new’ world and at worst demeaning toward them.

Yep, because Indians running about bashing each other’s heads in with rocks was so civilized.  They were so uncivilized they didn’t even have beer!!  According to the Left, spreading Western civilization is tantamount to a crime against humanity.   Therefore, all vestiges must be eliminated.

Premonitions of a Socialist Utopia

If ever there was a warning sign about what the Left’s socialist Utopia would look like, look no further than New York and Vermont.  New York recently passed a law which allows abortion up to 40 weeks of pregnancy with Vermont likely to follow suit.  For those of you doing the math, that is pretty much right up until birth.  In honor of this “achievement,” the Empire State Building was adorned in pink light.

Now For Some Sad News

In a move that will truly sadden some readers, it was announced that Huffington Post is laying off many of its “reporters.”  This comes on the heels of the announcement that Buzzfeed was laying off 15% of its “journalistic staff” in the wake of the fake Michael Cohen-Donald Trump story that was debunked by the Mueller investigation itself.  Can the New York Times and Washington Post be far behind?

Remembering Syme and He’d Be Happy

Sorry…but you have to read Orwell’s 1984 to get the reference.  In a move that would make Syme quite happy, the California state senate tackled a burning issue in the Golden State and it had nothing to do with wildfires.  The state senate’s judiciary committee has banned the use of the pronouns “he” and “she” during hearings.  Henceforth, the non-binary gender neutral “they” will be used since apparently the other two words are on the ever-growing list of hate speech words.  So much for grammar….
