Culture War Nonsense- July 25th edition

Well, the dog days of August will soon be on us and thoughts of back to school will soon ensue.  But, the crazy loons on the Left will continue their ridiculous ways as these seven stories- in no particular order of interest- prove:

THE JOKER REBORN

The fine folks at DC have decided to do a remake of the Batman character and specifically his tortured relationship with the Joker.  Said one writer of the new story arc:

My main goal was to undo the comic tropes while changing Gotham from a comic book city into a real city—a city dealing with everything from Black Lives Matter to the growing wage gap…

And how is this achieved.  Joker is released from jail and basically becomes…BERNIE SANDERS.

The new, politically active Joker wants to bring wage equality to the folks of Gotham.  Supposedly, then, Batman- the caped crusader- represents the overzealous oppressor.  No word yet on whether Bruce Wayne is really the illegitimate offspring of one of the Koch brothers.  Maybe the Cat Woman can become part-Cherokee.  You get the story…

HOLD THE PRESSES!  BRITISH NEWSPAPERS ANNOUNCE A WOMAN GAVE BIRTH

This isn’t just any woman.  This is Hayden Cross who was born with female reproductive organs, looked down one day and decided she wanted to be a male.  So, Hayden underwent hormone therapy, but then decided that now-he wanted to have a baby.  So he went off the hormone therapy, found a sperm donor and became pregnant thus becoming she again.

This prompted British tabloids to declare: “British man makes history by giving birth to baby girl!.”  At first glance, you think, “Wow!  Modern science has achieved the impossible,” until you read the entire story.  Why?  Because there is nothing scientifically revolutionary about someone with ovaries, a uterus and a vagina giving birth to a child.  Seems the British press jumped the gun on this one.

SATANISTS REJOICE

Worshipers of Satan no longer have to fly off to Stonehenge or say their Black Mass in some abandoned church in the woods.  Instead, they can now just jet off to Belle Plaine, Minnesota where the first Satanic monument on public property is on display in Veteran’s Memorial Park.

It all started when somebody took offense to a statue of a soldier with a cross in his hand.  Under threat of civil suit by some amorphous group, the city’s fathers decided to make the park a “free speech zone.”  Along came the satanists who demanded a monument in the park.  So they allowed them, in the interest of political correctness, to build their monument which is a black cube with a helmet on top.

This writer is all for religious freedom.  I mean, if you want to worship a chicken, be my guest.  But, satanic monuments in a veteran’s park?

REVENGE, SPANISH STYLE; OR, HOW TO RUIN A LIFE IN 140 CHARACTERS OR LESS

A group of feminists from Spain who describe themselves as ““Eleven communist women very angry with the world and very disorganized” have decided to take their anger out on male feminists.  As a result, they are asking the sisterhood to report all instances of male feminists who have been suspected of rape, sexual misconduct or abuse.

I saved the reader the task and linked to the Twitter feed which reads not so much as rape, sexual misconduct or abuse than it does of 16-year-old girls who lost a boyfriend seeking digital revenge on the poor saps.  The group’s stated purpose is to subject the men listed to online persecution.

The group posts the male’s Twitter handles and their names online so that the sisterhood can then digitally harass these men/boys.  Their efforts are succeeding as many of the men/boys listed have deleted their Twitter accounts.  Of course, the sisterhood failed to take into account that these victims can simply create another account and go about their rapist, abusive ways.

MY CHOICE FOR IDIOT OF THE YEAR

Apparently the area around King County Superior Court in Seattle has some problems given the number of homeless people that hang in the area.  And when you’re homeless and hanging, you gotta relieve yourself.  The situation got so bad with the smell of urine and excrement that some courthouse workers demanded the city do something about it.

Their solution was to bring in high-powered hoses to power wash the sidewalks, which sounds like a reasonable idea…for Seattle, that is.  Not so, says Seattle Councilman Larry Gossett.  And just what is his objection?  He claims that the use of hoses to clean sidewalks brings back bad images of the 1960’s when police used hoses to disburse civil rights protesters.

And he is a councilman in Seattle.

THE CONTINUING SAGA OF ZINNIA JONES

A couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to the demented mind of Zinnia Jones, an Internet SJW, who believes those videos of ISIS pushing gays off buildings is really ISIS trying to prevent a suicide.  This week she’s back with this beauty of a tweet:

I don’t see a problem with telling straight guys who are exclusionary of trans women partners that they should work through that.

Put another way, straight men should be romantic with other men who identify as being a woman.  And if that is troublesome to straight men, then THEY have to work through those issues.  She even asserts that touching a trans woman’s genitals (which happen to belong to a biological man) should not be a problem to a straight man.

So to all the straight male readers, get with the program.

FORGET TRANSGENDERS!  ALGEBRA IS THE NEW CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE

According to Eloy Oritz Oakley (again, I don’t make up these names), the guy who oversees 113 community colleges in California, algebra requirements for graduation from community college are a civil rights issue.  He further notes that 50% of community college graduates in the state fail to meet those requirements.  And Bernie Sanders and company want to make college free for this?

Said the illustrious Mr. Oakley:

This is a civil rights issue, but this is also something that plagues all Americans — particularly low-income Americans.  If you think about all the underemployed or unemployed Americans in this country who cannot connect to a job in this economy — which is unforgiving of those students who don’t have a credential — the biggest barrier for them is this algebra requirement. It’s what has kept them from achieving a credential.

Uh…no.  What prevents them from getting a job is their inability to reason which is what algebra is all about when you think about it.  One wonders if this clown can pass an algebra test.
