In no particular order of importance or significance, the following is a recap of some craziness from the Left: six short stories and one big moonbat.

Moonbat of the Week

‘Tis a scary thought to contemplate what Rachel Maddow of MSNBC fame fantasizes about, but she let us into her mind this past week- a fantasy of a rape conviction against Supreme Court nominee- Brett Kavanaugh.  Said the cutest little boy on television since Ricky Schroeder:

If law enforcement found that allegation to be substantiated and found sufficient evidence to bring charges, there is no rule against indicting a sitting Supreme Court justice. There is not even a Justice Department policy against indicting a sitting Supreme Court justice as there is for, say, a President of the United States.

There were a lot more “ifs” in the original comments to fill a big vat of a very strange fantasy indeed.

Spartacus is a Groper

While Kavanaugh is accused of something which he denies and whose accuser cannot even remember certain important things like the “when,” “where,” “who,” and “how,” a certain Greek gladiator Senator from New Jersey actually admitted to groping the breasts of a 15-year-old.  He even admitted to the act in his college newspaper.

But what is actual sexual assault and groping from the likes of Corey Booker and Keith Ellison when there is a Supreme Court nominee to slur?

The Emmy Awards Take a Nosedive

Well, the country suffered through another boring awards ceremony… er, anti-Trump rally.  Hosted by the infinitely unfunny Michael Che and Colin Jost of SNL, perhaps it was “jokes” like this from Che that caused all-time low ratings referring to his mother:

She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough. That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.

Sadly, that may have been the highlight of this yawnfest.

A Confab of the Hypocrites

California Governor Jerry Brown decided to convene a meeting of the minds at a summit on climate change in San Francisco.  Says the San Francisco Chronicle:

One of the hottest spots during the just-concluded Global Climate Action Summit was the private runway at San Francisco International Airport, where SFO spokesman Doug Yakel reports corporate jet traffic was up 30 percent over normal.

Seems most of the attendees arrived in private jets.  Al Gore, who attended, flew in by private jet which spews more carbon into the air in a single flight than a family of four does in two weeks.  The conference supplied a green-friendly shuttle for the 4,000 attendees, many of whom preferred private limos and SUVs.

Moving Onto Phrases

Not content with changing gender pronouns, a University of Michigan study warns teachers not to use phrases like “boys will be boys” or remind girls to have “good manners.”  Apparently both phrases”accidentally contribute to gender inequality.”

Another Pro Sports Team Disses Trump

In case you missed all the riveting action on ESPN 18, the Seattle Storm recently won the WNBA championship.  For the uninitiated, that is the Women’s version of the NBA.  Immediately after the game, Seattle point guard Sue Bird announced the team’s decision not to visit the White House because of Trump.  Of course, no such invitation by Trump to visit the White House has been extended, so count this one is one huge virtue signal failure.

Echoes of Stalin and Hitler

Marine Le Pen, the anti-immigrant French politician, found herself in legal trouble when she tweeted out images of ISIS atrocities.  In March, she was charged with “circulating images that incite terrorism or pornography or seriously harm human dignity.”  The court ordered Le Pen to undergo a psychiatric examination for this crime. Thus, in France, accusing terrorists of terrorism is now terrorism, or pornography.  Stalin and Hitler are smiling somewhere.

That’s it for this week…
