From animated British pigs to dirt eating Democratic Party presidential wannabes, the culture wars were active in the past week, notwithstanding the liberal meltdown over Robert Mueller. Here are seven stories that illustrate some of the craziness.
Now, Even the Air is Racist
Proving that researchers have way too much time on their hands, a study from the National Academy of Science has made this bold finding: “Pollution is disproportionately caused by whites, but disproportionately inhaled by black and Hispanic minorities.” USAToday even trumpeted these findings. If one believes the air in the US is more polluted than the air in Hispanic or black countries, they haven’t visited India, Mexico or South Africa.
The Earth Self-Immolation Clock
Dingbat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez informed us back in January that if something was not done about climate change, the world was going to end in 12 years. However, Noel Brown of the UN Environment Office tells us that entire countries will be inundated with floods and the Dust Bowl will return to the Midwest. Unfortunately, the esteemed Mr. Brown made these dire predictions in 1989…or 30 years ago…or before the Bronx Dingbat was born.
Sure to Be a Weekly Feature: The Travails of Beta O’Rourke
Presidential wannabe and gesticulator extraordinaire Beta O’Rourke made the incredible claim that climate change environmental activists were just like those “who were on the beaches of Normandy.” Moving climate change hysteria to new stratospheric heights, we are now supposed to believe that bearded environmentalists and their army of misinformed miscreants are the same as brave soldiers being shot at by Nazis.
Meanwhile, Back in Reality…
A Canadian researcher has found that the polar bear population has quadrupled in the past 50 years. This has happened despite the fact they are supposedly losing their homes to climate change. This goes against the predictions of many environmentalists who predicted the demise of such bears. Climate change and/or global warming has obviously had a positive effect on the sex lives of polar bears.
The Legend of the Long Tongue of President Trump
Singer John Legend claimed that the rhetoric of Donald Trump inspired the mass shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Said the singer:
He needs to apologize for demonizing brown people who have tried to come here and have a better life…That rhetoric of invasion, that rhetoric of violence, of scaring white people to think that these brown people are going to rape and kill their families — that rhetoric is inspiring people to do these kind of massacres.
To paraphrase Rahm Emmanuel, “Never let a tragedy go to waste.”
Speaking of Tragedies
Expect the media to beat the Christchurch tragedy to death. If it wasn’t for that Islamophobic jerk in the White House, these incidents would never happen. By the way, let’s start getting rid of guns like they are doing in New Zealand. Meanwhile, half a world away, Fulani Muslim tribesmen in Nigeria have targeted and killed over 150 Christians in one week. Don’t expect to hear about this anytime soon since it does not fit the media’s Islamophile agenda. Besides… it’s all Trump’s fault anyway.
Four Seconds of British Outrage
It all started when Mattel rolled out a Barbie dressed as a firefighter. The London Fire Brigade tweeted out: “Great to have another supporter in our #FirefightingSexism campaign. Welcome Barbie!” A viewer then brought to their attention a four second clip of the show “Peppa Pig” where the narrator committed a thought crime by saying: “Mummy piggy’s dressed as a fireman!” You can the travesty here… a fireman. The London Fire brigade then called out Peppa Pig to get with the times and stop all this gender-specific wording because as anyone knows, calling someone a “fireman” discourages girls from becoming firemen.
