Virginian Pilot Blames Racism for Everything

 

The headline: Prayer vigils are being held across Hampton Roads in response to racially motivated shootings nationwide

But that's a lie.  When a young Hispanic man enters a mostly Hispanic grade school in Texas and kills nearly 20 people, you have to be racially obsessed, like the people who write and edit the Virginian Pilot to attribute that horrific crime to racism.  When a mentally deranged white boy who identifies as a radical Leftist kills ten people in a Black neighborhood in Buffalo, people obsessed with skin color scream "racism" instead of mental illness.  When an ethnic Chinese man enters a Church in California and begins shooting other Chinese people the cry goes out from the races-obsessed that "it's racism."

The writer of heat article is Caitlyn Burchett and she identifies as a Staff Writer.  She's young, white, and appears race-obsessed.  Like many on the Left, she's busy stoking the fires of racism.  

Dozens of parishioners and community members gathered on the steps of Norfolk’s Basilica of St. Mary — the only African American basilica in the country — Monday evening to pray for an end to racism and violence following coast-to-coast hate crimes earlier this month.

Why the Virginian Pilot hates Americans

 


This article explains why the people who work at the Virginian Pilot take out their hate on ordinary Americans.  

First, an explanation.  Kris Worrell, Editor in Chief, and Brian Colligan, Opinion Editor of the Virginian Pilot, decided to publish these editorial cartoons that accuse you of being a mindless hater and a stone-cold killer because Fox News feeds you hate.   Freddy DeBoer believes it's "displacement."

Displacement is a psychological defense mechanism in which a person redirects a negative emotion from its original source to a less threatening recipient. A classic example of the defense is displaced aggression. If a person is angry but cannot direct their anger toward the source without consequences, they might "take out" their anger on a person or thing that poses less of a risk.

The problem is that people working in newspapers are in a dying industry.  They got into the business because it sounded great, and there was no heavy lifting.  They may have student loans that they can't pay off.  Journalism was once a place where you could earn a decent living, now you can't.  As newspapers lose revenue, they look at salaries - usually the biggest line item in any company's cash flow statement and reduce headcount, cut pay, and eliminate benefits.  

Newspapers are being combined to cut costs, but in the process, jobs are eliminated.  No one is immune.  The editors and writers who are hanging on to their jobs with their fingernails are going to displace their anger at their situation.  They will turn their anger to less threatening recipients: people who voted for Trump, Glenn Younkin, or people who watch Fox News.

The Virginian Pilot - along with virtually all of the legacy media - are so reflexively Left that virtually every article manages to either insult or mislead ordinary Americans.  An entire parallel media channel has sprung up to serve Americans interested in news and political discourse.  

Freddy DeBoer is a writer for Substack, a subscription service for news and opinion.  He asks:

"...why are so many people subscribing to Substacks? What is the traditional media not providing that they’re seeking elsewhere? Why have half a million people signed up as paying subscribers of various Substack newsletters, if the establishment media is providing the diversity of viewpoints that is an absolute market requirement in a country with a vast diversity of opinions? You can try to make an adult determination about that question, to better understand what media is missing, or you can read this and write some shitty joke tweet while your industry burns to the ground around you. It’s your call.

The people in the legacy media see their ship sinking.  They see their future is in doubt.  Several years ago, one suggested that coal miners who were losing their jobs "learn to code."  It was a cruel joke, an exhibition of how they felt about a group of people they looked down on as their inferiors.  As news people lost their jobs, the compliment was returned.  

Let me suggest a more practical solution, learn a useful trade.  The world does not need another editor spreading hate and division.  It needs people who can fix a dishwasher or install a light fixture.  Get a real job.  

This is the Disgusting Virginian Pilot - Sunday May 22, 2022

 The Virginian Pilot's Editors hate you, and they don't care who knows it.

Murder is rampant as violent people roam the streets.  Guns are not the problem.  They are not escaping from homes and committing murder.  There are killers on the loose, and people are afraid of them.    

Guns are tools.  The killers are people; the Virginian Pilot is a tool in the hands of haters who are willing to lie to achieve their objective.  They inject poison into the veins of the public discourse.  Like killers with guns, the people who wield the Virginian Pilot like a weapon want you dead.  

So let's look are the real problem and see who is busy killing the culture.

They are people, and they have names.

At Last, a Hill to Die On

 

So now the mask has dropped and, for the first time, the American people can see the modern Left in all its hateful, unadorned, vituperative, spiteful glory. Case in point: the announcement last week that the Department of Homeland Security—one of the excrescences of the Bush administration, cobbled together in its panic over 9/11—has created the "Disinformation Governance Board" in order to combat what it has, via its hitherto little-known Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, already dubbed "mis-, dis-, and mal-information." Otherwise known as alternative points of view, but shut up, citizen.

EXPERT VIEW ‘Deep State’ Was Working Against Trump on COVID-19 Response: Paul Alexander

 

According to Paul Alexander, when former President Donald Trump was trying to tackle COVID-19 in 2020, the “swamp” or the “deep state” was working against him, using flawed data to tarnish him, locking down society, and keeping schools closed.

“Can you imagine the president of the United States fighting against the [teachers’] union, fighting against the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)], fighting against his own task force?” Alexander told EpochTV’s “Facts Matter” program in an interview that will air on May 3.

“They’re working against him. So you need to be there to understand when he said ‘the swamp’—and he talked about deep state—it is real. I dealt with them. It is the bureaucracy. The entrenched bureaucracy is real.”

From late March till early September 2020, Alexander served as scientific adviser to Michael Caputo, then-assistant secretary for public affairs at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

During that time, Alexander was attacked by the media and some health agency officials for trying to “tweak” the COVID-19 death numbers in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).

On Aug. 8, 2020, in an email to Caputo (pdf) and other officials, Alexander wrote: “CDC to me appears to be writing hit pieces on the administration and meant at this time to impact school re-openings and they then send it to the media knowing it is deceiving. I ask it be stopped now! … Nothing to go out unless I read and agree with the findings how they CDC, wrote it and I tweak it to ensure it is fair and balanced and ‘complete.’ And not misleading.”

CNN Panel of so-called "journalists" demands that government censors speech

Saturday, April 30, 2022

Which useful idiot thought such a clearly partisan hack should be Biden’s ‘disinformation czar’?

 

Insane as it is that the Department of Homeland Security has created a Disinformation Governance Board, it’s utter madness that the woman running it is Nina Jankowicz, who’s a veteran disinfo spreader.

She embraced and promoted the bogus Clinton-campaign-created Trump-Russia dossier. And she waged war on The Post’s true and accurate reporting of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

As our first laptop stories ran, The Associated Press reported: “Disinformation experts say there are multiple red flags that raise doubts about their authenticity, including questions about whether the laptop actually belongs to Hunter Biden, said Nina Jankowicz.”

She also told the AP: “We should view it as a Trump campaign product.”

Jankowicz soon shared another report “casting yet more doubt on the provenance of the New York Post’s Hunter Biden story.” And she tweeted that same day, “The emails don’t need to be altered to be part of an influence campaign. Voters deserve that context, not a [fairy] tale about a laptop repair shop.”

 Look: She’s a career left-wing partisan, from her days working at the National Democratic Institute to her Fulbright-Clinton fellowship to her gig at the left-leaning Wilson Center where she routinely did media hits with NPR, CNN, PBS and so on while placing New York Times and Washington Post opeds. Hiring her for this job just shows how detached from reality and broad American society the entire Biden team has become.

Don’t pretend that high prices and American suffering are a ‘bug’ for the establishment — it’s a historic feature

 

Well, the establishment is doing it again. As author Julia Song tweeted: “Sh*t is so fake that the minute an outsider took office we got cheap gas, cheap food, became energy independent, no wars and focused on our country’s own issues. Establishment hacks get back in and we have inflation, medical tyranny, world war 3, need to take a mortgage for gas.”

Food Shortage - By Design

 Given the recent past, you can't be paranoid enough!


How many US Presidents in modern history have announced 'food shortages' before they occurred? The answer is only President Biden.

Dear Corporations: This ‘Pride Month,’ LEAVE US ALONE

 June — or as woke culture warriors call it, “Pride Month” — is just around the corner. Corporations, associations, and non-profits alike are well into planning their marketing, engagement, and fundraising for the upcoming rainbow festivities. But before they spend any more time or budget on glorifying the LGBTQ movement, I have some advice for them: don’t.

Every year, as summer rolls around and an entire month is commandeered by groomy Leftists to shove their values (to use that word charitably) down everyone’s throat, normal people are driven to someplace on the spectrum between annoyance and anger.

And year after year, the normals react with polite silence. The bravest surreptitiously pass around a meme or two, like this perennial favorite:

PRINCIPLES ARE A GRAND THING – A GUEST POST – BY JOHN RINGO

 Nobody has been afraid of the Republicans in my LIFETIME. Lois Lerner can laugh at a congressional committee the Republicans are running and gets away with it. Strosz can smirk and preen. Bureaucrats and businessmen flat out lie to Republican leadership and nothing happens.

But they don’t do that to Democrats. Why?

Because if you do, the Left will kill you. They will f’ing DESTROY YOU.

See Joe the Plumber or any number of other examples of ‘nobodies’ that were destroyed for questioning the Left.

So why doesn’t the Right (metaphorically) kill people who disrespect their leadership? Why do the bureaucrats and businesses think they can screw over the Right but not the Left?

PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES!

The PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! crowd has been a Conservative Surrender Chorus for as long as I can remember.

You can’t attack a bureaucracy that is treating Republicans like something under their shoe! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES!

You can’t cut funding to academia just because they’re tweeting #KillAllRepublicans. PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES!

You can’t smack down a company that involves itself, overtly and partisanly, in politics! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES!

....

Take the high road.’ ‘If you get into the mud with a pig you get covered in mud and only the pig enjoys it.’

If you take the high road, you’re silhouetting yourself and you’re just going to get shot.

If you don’t get in the mud with the pig, it takes you out at the knees and gores nine kinds of stuff out of you.

But PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES!

Which got us to here. Teachers are openly grooming kids and convincing them they’re… something they are not. Children are being permanently chemically castrated for kicks and money. Two weeks to flatten the curve turned into two years of random medical tyranny. The sitting President that most represented the Right, far more than the eGOP, was investigated over a hoax THAT THE FBI KNEW WAS A HOAX.

The list goes on and on.

We’re in the bunkers, being pounded by artillery. Every time some leader on the Right tries to break out, tries to rally the troops, they get bombarded by fire from every direction.

Reagan was constantly bombarded. Newt to the point he was destroyed. Tea Party was taken out by investigations and the IRS refusing to process their paperwork. Then the leadership was audited to death.

We could fight that. We could rally round a flag. But the worst part. The part that is absolutely INFURIATING, is the Surrender Chorus.

YOU CAN’T FIGHT BACK! THAT’S ICKY! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES!

Stay in the bunker. Learn to cope. The dinner parties are loverly.

I’m sick to death of the principles crowd. David French, leader of the Conservative Surrender Chorus, once tweeted “If I supported Trump, I’d never be invited to another dinner party.”

If your politics is based on whether you get invites to dinner parties, you don’t have ‘Principles’. You have the opposite.

...

But the worst part. The absolute worst. Is the TrueConservatives that every time we start to take a position quite frankly stab us in the back shouting PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES!

If you’re more worried about PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! than @libsoftiktok being doxed, if you’re more worried about PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! PRINCIPLES! than a mulit-billion dollar supposedly ‘family friendly’ corporation with loads of largesse given to it by the taxpayers coming out, very publicly, in favor of chemical castration of children…

Then you can take those principles and shove them where the sun don’t shine.

Obama's partisan 'disinformation' campaign

 Obama weighs in on tech censorship.  Like all dictators, he wants his views to prevail; his "truth" to rule.

Byron York:

In what way? Nearing the end of his speech, Obama gave an extraordinarily telling example of how his plan might work. "It is possible to broaden our perspectives," he said. To illustrate that, he cited a recent study by researchers who paid a group of regular Fox News watchers to watch CNN instead for a month. "These were not swing voters," Obama said. "These were hardcore Hannity-Carlson fans. And what the researchers found was that at the end of the month, people's views on certain issues, like whether voting by mail should be allowed or whether electing Joe Biden would lead to more violence against police — on some of these issues, their views had changed by 5, 8, 10 points. These people didn't suddenly turn into liberals — I'm sure they still don't like me — but at the margins, they had reshaped their perspectives in meaningful ways."

There it is. Perhaps social media companies could do something similar. Perhaps they could play the role of the good guys, CNN, in changing the views of people who watch the bad guys, Fox News. Or, to be more open about it, perhaps they could play the role of Democrats in changing the views of Republicans. And for those who believe that is precisely what social media companies are already trying to do — well, perhaps they could do even more. That is Obama's vision. "Now is the time to pick a side," he said. "We have a choice right now: Do we allow our democracy to wither, or do we make it better? That is the choice we face."

Selling Censorship: Could the Twitter Board Trigger Shareholder Lawsuits Over ESG and Anti-Free Speech Policies?

 The Washington Post’s Max Boot declared that “for democracy to survive, we need more content moderation, not less.”

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich went full Orwellian in explaining why freedom is tyranny. Reich insisted that “every dictator, strongman, demagogue and modern-day robber baron” pushed free speech to oppress people and that, while good for Musk, “for the  rest of us, it would be a brave new nightmare.”

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal has maintained that he wants to steer the company beyond free speech and that the issue is not who can speak but “who can be heard.” The question, however, is whether shareholders will be heard by a Board that has decided to make censorship (or “content modification”) a critical goal of the company.

Orwellian.  Freedom is slavery. 

Trickle-Down Racist Antiracism

 This reactionary and neo-Confederate return to racial stigmatization and hatred is not going to end well. 


 Regressing to the Color of Our Skin

Until about 2008, it was generally believed America had made great strides in rendering race incidental rather than essential to our characters. We were moving away from the racial collective of our past to the individual. That was the dream of Martin Luther King, Jr., who emphasized content of character over color of skin.

Barack Obama’s presidency, however, resurrected tribal identity politics. He rebooted the banal word “diversity” and made it synonymous with anyone and anything “nonwhite.” ...

As a result, rich Punjabi immigrants, Korean-American orthodontists, Obama himself, or Oprah Winfrey (the victim, supposedly, of being denied a look at a $38,000 crocodile skin bag) all supposedly shared some sort of oppressed solidarity by virtue of not being completely white. 

But if the well-off mysteriously could become victims, stranger still, millions of the poor could be reinvented as white victimizers.

In this new fixation on “white rage,” “white supremacy,” and “white privilege,” a white Mark Zuckerberg, Jane Fonda, a long-haul truck-driver, or an Alabama janitor all can be jumbled together as the oppressors of the likes of Jussie Smollett, LeBron James, Sonya Sotomayor, or Elizabeth Warren—whose power, money, or influence did not negate their claims of being not fully white.

And:

So why wouldn’t a known racist firebrand like Brooks or Frank James, the racist subway shooter, believe that he was only acting out the thoughts of elites who were bragging about either shunning non-improved whites or playing at beheading them?

New Democrat Line: Democracy is a Threat to Democracy

 Kurt Schlichter takes the next logical step in the Democrats' war on reality:

The ruling caste knows it maintains its sinecure not by persuasion but by power; if they can’t silence and subdue us, they’ll be trampled in the stampede to those who actually can adequately perform the job of running society. That’s why suddenly free speech has morphed into a threat to democracy. And, of course, democracy is also a threat to democracy.

But his main point is that billionaires will not save us from the radical Left.  Individuals have their quirks and those quirks are going to lead to disappointment when the chips are down.

 Money can be extremely helpful even though it is not a substitute for political leadership. The Elon Musks and the Peter Thiels and the rest of the not-left rich guys can be useful at times, but they are not conservative ideologues like us. It is not that they do not have a comprehensive political vision. It is that, except for Trump and maybe Ross Perot, they are not positioned to become the avatar of one out there in the electorate that existing pols have failed to claim and harness.

For that reason, to lean on the Crassus contingent, is to court consistent disappointment. Remember the Koch Brothers? They gave the libs fits, but they were not America First nationalists. They were quirky libertarians who, for every three good policy positions, held one that we reject, like freeing criminals or sending a bong to every high school grad. The last one is probably not a thing, but only because they didn’t think of it before fading away.

The oligarchs don't have the normal people's problems.  They have different problems, not the ones that trouble normal people. 

 The main issue today is culture, as in who gets to run it – us or the woke groomer mutants? And that issue is the one that the rebel oligarchs are least likely to rebel over. They don’t have kids in public schools. Little JOmNerf#$, or whatever bizarre name Musk laid on his last kid, is not going to come home and say “Daddy, my teacher told me I am privileged and also that my penis has nothing to do with my sex.” This is a problem that we less enormously wealthy people face. ...

. What fighting these battles takes is really a hundred thousand outraged moms showing up at school board meetings and yelling and running themselves if they can’t scare the incumbents into doing their jobs instead of submitting to Big Woke.

Twitter's Chickens Come Home to Roost

 Matt Taibbi:

Elon Musk has reportedly attempted to purchase Twitter, and I have no idea whether his influence on the company would be positive or not.

I do know, however, what other media figures think Musk’s influence on Twitter will be. They think it will be bad — very bad, bad! How none of them see what a self-own this is is beyond me. After spending the last six years practically turgid with joy as other unaccountable billionaires tweaked the speech landscape in their favor, they’re suddenly howling over the mere rumor that a less censorious fat cat might get to sit in one of the big chairs. O the inhumanity!

A few of the more prominent Musk critics are claiming merely to be upset at the prospect of wealthy individuals controlling speech. As more than one person has pointed out, this is a bizarre thing to be worrying about all of the sudden, since it’s been the absolute reality in America for a while.

as someone who isn't a fan of Elon Musk, I still find it darkly funny that billionaire-owned media is suddenly having a moral panic about a billionaire possibly buying Twitter

Probably the funniest effort along those lines was this passage:

We need regulation… to prevent rich people from controlling our channels of communication.

That was Ellen Pao, former CEO of Reddit, railing against Musk in the pages of… the Washington Post!

The Other Fednapping Plot

 If you’re looking for an actual insurrection, it occurred within the FBI and the political class generally, who abused their power specifically to get rid of a democratically elected president in order to install one who was manifestly unqualified for the job.


The same FBI operation that ginned up the phony kidnapping plot in Michigan also tried to coax a Virginia man to participate in a similar scheme against Governor Ralph Northam.

A Michigan jury acquitted two defendants last week and could not reach a verdict on two other defendants in what the government considered one of the largest domestic terrorism investigations ever. (The Justice Department just announced it will retry Adam Fox and Barry Croft, Jr., who remain in jail.)

Defense attorneys successfully argued that multiple FBI agents and informants attempted to induce the men to commit the crimes and blasted the government in closing arguments. 

“That’s unacceptable in America,” Fox’s attorney, Christopher Gibbons, told the jury on April 1. “That’s not how it works. They don’t make terrorists so we can arrest them.”

But the government not only attempted to manufacture “terrorists” in the Whitmer kidnapping hoax—the same FBI operation also tried to coax a man in Virginia to participate in the same sort of plot against Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. That scheme didn’t fully materialize, but the FBI’s attempt to pull off a similar stunt in Virginia reveals just how far agents were willing to go to bolster FBI Director Christopher Wray’s false warning that domestic extremists planned to “kill and assassinate” public officials.

These 18 Corporations Gave Money to Radical Black Lives Matter Group

 Did you hear about the $6 million dollar mansion BLM bought in Malibu and the $90 million they raised?  No one seems to know how got it and how it was spent.

There are lots of fake "fact-checkers" that tell us that big corporations like Bank of America didn't give to BLM when it pledged $1 billion to "fight racial inequality" at a time when BLM was marching in the streets; marches that turned to violent riots after the sun went down.  

They will all tell you that the $1 billion gifts to BLM were "not correct." But they don't tell us what's not correct.  The dollar amount?  Who it went to ?  Did they give it to third parties who gave it to BLM?  Are we supposed to be gullible enough after the lies we have been fed over the last few years that "not correct" is a categorical denial?

Well here are a number of big companies that boasted about giving to BLM:

Here are some of the corporate donors.

David Mamet: American Occupation

 

lived for very many years in rural Vermont. I’d bought a long-abandoned, post-and-beam farmhouse on a third-class dirt road. The realtor was a German immigrant who’d come to Vermont with his wife and infant children just after the war. He suggested that I call a local builder, Bob, to inspect the house, which was superficially in dreadful shape, but the farm and basement were sound. Bob said he’d be glad to put it right, and he and his brother-in-law restored it to its 1805 perfection.

Bob’s family had lived through the war in Germany, and through the famine afterward, and through relocation in America, ignorant of the language. Bob taught himself carpentry and all the building trades, and became a much-respected member of the small town, where all of his contemporary men had fought against the Axis in World War II. His brother-in-law, Eric, had been in the Hitler Youth, and Bob was a glider commando in the Luftwaffe—the equivalent, today, of Delta Force, or the Navy Seals.

My family became friends with Bob, and his wife, Ilse, became a surrogate grandmother—or better, great-aunt—to my kids. His family was my first encounter with the German national character—hard working, honest, and uncomplaining.

Why does the Virginian Pilot want teachers to talk about their love life?

When I was a toddler in school my teachers never discussed their love lives. 

In fact, I don't recall my teachers ever talking about their private lives in grade school, high school, or college. 

 Why would any teacher talk about their private lives or discuss their sexual preferences with a class of children? Oh, wait, I can think of a reason. It may have something to do with what some priests did with young boys who came to them for instruction. 

When my kids were that age, I didn’t talk to them about my love life, even. What in actual fact is wrong with these crazy people?

Teachers Who Insist They're Not Teaching Your Kid About Sex Also Weirdly Outraged By Ban On Teaching Your Kid About Sex

 


The people who put out the Virginian Pilot are absolutely outraged that your object to their kids being taught about sex even as they say they're not teaching your toddlers about sex.  It's a satirical article, but the Editors of the Virginianjh Pilot under the leadership of Kris Worrell are calling the lawmakers of Florida bad for saying that Kindergarten through third graders should not be given lessons in sexual orientation.

Since they and their LBGTA+ cohorts are incensed about this, we have to ask what motivates them to want to introduce sexuality, transgenderism, and any number of perverse sexual kinks to children who still lack basic reading, writing, and math skills.  Perhaps the Virginian Pilot editorial and reportorial staff can enlighten us.  Feel free to send us a letter.  

On July 1st, teachers throughout Florida will no longer be permitted to encourage discussions about sex with children in grades kindergarten through grade 3. Florida teachers have been adamant that they've never encouraged such discussions in their classrooms but they are weirdly outraged that they will no longer be able to.

"I have never once told a boy they are really a girl, or a girl they are really nothing, or a man that they should be comfortable loving children. Not once. BUT IT'S OUTRAGEOUS THAT I CAN'T," said Ms. Feilershiek, a kindergarten teacher at Chickasaw Elementary, while picketing in front of her school instead of teaching children.

One third-grade teacher, Mx. Pat Frumouge (ze/zir), had begun teaching zeir students about LGBTQ culture full-time ahead of the July 1st deadline.

"Look, I don't groom any kids. But I have to constantly explain why I look like a porcelain fish-being," ze said, visibly shaken. "This law is going to erase me as an individual. My sexual identity and favorite kinks are my entire identity... if I can't share that with children—which I don't—then I don't know what I'm going to do. Teach math?"

Children at Chickasaw Elementary School are reportedly failing at math and science but excelling at peer-pressuring other children to switch genders at will. Teachers insist the kids are doing that on their own, however.

According to sources, teachers are preparing for the next year by abandoning all subjects entirely in favor of full-time LGBTQ lectures to make up for the fact they won't be able to indoctrinate children next year—even though they don't do that.

A Group of Virginian Pilot Adults us Very Interested in Your Child's Sexuality

 Let's ask Kris Worrell


Why would an adult who is not a parent want to talk to a 1st grader about sex?

 Question for the Virginian Pilot editors. What's your answer, Kris Worrell?

Virginian Pilot Supports Sexual Grooming Your toddler

 

The Virginian Pilot headline: Florida Gov. DeSantis Signs "Don't Say Gay" bill into law.  

In keeping with its far-Left advocacy stance, the editors at the Virginian Pilot joined sexual perverts who want to "groom" toddlers by calling the bill the "Don't Say Gay" bill.  The bill says nothing about "gay" and never uses that language. That is the way the issue is being framed by pedophiles and advocates of transgender surgery for young people.  

Apparently, there are not enough sexually disturbed people to go around so these advocates believe that indoctrinating toddlers is a way of increasing their victims.  

The sponsors of the bill, Governor DeSantis, and the vast majority of the American people don't think that classroom instruction in Kindergarten through third grade about subjects such as sexual orientation and gender identity is appropriate.  

Apparently, the editors of the Virginian Pilot and the rest of the LGBTQ+ community believe that it's perfectly proper.  The Virginian Pilot is on the side that says that parents have no right to protect their children from being taught that little Johhny could become Little Susie with the proper surgery and the proper hormone treatments before he's old enough to learn to read, write and do long division.  

One has to wonder how many sexually disturbed people work at the Virginian Pilot and whether you would entrust your children to them.   I believe that they will soon reap the whirlwind of an angry public.  As the last election in Virginia demonstrated, you don't mess around with people's children.  That gets people angry, and angry people stop being nice.

American rulers imitate Roman corruption

 The American ruling class has managed to internationalize corruption in ways that boggle the imagination.  It’s weird that such a poor country as Ukraine has so many financial connections to so many members of the American political class and their relatives who have received hundreds of millions of dollars in return for selling their country out.

These are the people who have spent four years falsely accusing Donald Trump of being in Putin’s pocket while they got rich peddling American government favors to Russians, Ukrainians, and Chinese Communist organs.  

For students of history, this is how Roman rulers became fabulously wealthy, by taking bribes from foreign rulers in return for influence peddling.  


How Bill Barr’s Silence Impacted the Outcome of an Election

 

On May 18, 2020, then-Attorney General Bill Barr made a statement to the media, declaring that special counsel John Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Russiagate hoax wasn’t focused on either former President Barack Obama or former Vice President Joe Biden, stating that “I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man.”...

Barr’s May 18 claim is an often underappreciated statement, the fallout of which was felt throughout the 2020 presidential election. Although Barr now claims that he issued his statement from a position of fairness, what he actually did was insert himself and the Department of Justice (DOJ) into the presidential campaign, and in doing so, he set the stage for the media’s whitewashing of questions of corruption that swirled around Biden throughout the campaign...

More importantly, Barr’s May 18 statement stands in stark contrast to his decision to remain silent after the second presidential debate in October 2020, when Biden falsely blamed the story about his son Hunter’s laptop on a “Russian plot.”...

By first speaking out and then remaining silent, Barr very directly put his thumb on the scale, leading to material ramifications for our country—including the geopolitical landscape we now face.

Question: is Bill Barr the most wily Deep State political operative who helped defeat Trump in the 2020 election?  Many Trump supporters like Barr.  I wonder if they are just as gullible as the Conservatives who are gulled into voting for Republicans like Mitt Romney who said all the right things but who wore Conservatism like a skin suit over the Uniparty carcass.

Just a reminder: you can't be paranoid enough.

When Big Business Went Woke

The purveyors of the COVID response are merchants of evil


Jack Kerwick in Frontpage writes about The Death of Outrage over COVID

Asking why Republicans have lost the trust of so many of us who called ourselves Republican, he says:  

Frankly, it’s astonishing that, at this date, traditional Republican voters are still willing to vote Republican at all.

It's worth reading the whole thing, and here's the bottom line: 

 The purveyors of the COVID response are merchants of evil, for the incalculable pain, of every conceivable sort, that this response visited upon the Earth was all avoidable. Those who could’ve spoken out but refused to do so are accomplices to these crimes. Republicans and their apologists in the Big Conservative media subscribed to COVID Orthodoxy.

Will they redeem themselves now? After all, the verdict is in. The last two years have been an unmitigated disaster, both in reality and, critically, relative to the tenets of COVID Orthodoxy itself. The “two weeks” that the Experts told us they would need to “flatten the curve” and “save lives” has turned into two years—despite “social distancing,” mask mandates, the interning of society, and a mass vaccination campaign the likes of which the world had never known.

On their own terms, Anthony Fauci and his fellow partisans everywhere have proven themselves to be colossal failures. Whether through incompetence or dishonesty (doubtless a combination of both), they failed.

Unless and until Republicans and Big Conservative media actors spare not a moment to hammer this point home, they deserve the trust of their constituents about as much as the public health officials of places like Israel and America deserve the trust of the public.

There must be a reckoning for this much evil.

The Virginian Pilot lies about The Parental Rights in Education bill


Do the Virginian Pilot writers, editors, and cartoonists support grooming?  

Do you think it's appropriate for teachers to teach your toddler about sex instead of teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic?  

For perspective: they’re losing their minds over teachers being forbidden from discussing sex with kids in third grade and under.  Think about this for a moment. Just a moment. Try not to reach for the pitchfork.

 It's called The Parental Rights in Education bill,

The bill states: “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”

Ask yourself what kind of people think that getting your toddlers to question their sexual identity, sexual orientation, or any of the many permutations of sexual perversions is the right thing to do? 

Then call the Virginian Pilot, ask why they use a cartoon to lie about the bill, ask about their sexual orientation and cancel your subscription.

New York Times reported that Poland invaded Germany in 1939.

 How the New York Times has published lies to serve a biased narrative.  

The NY Times has twisted the facts to serve a larger narrative, from Hitler to Trump, according to a new book.  

NY Times reported that Poland attacked Germany starting WW2.



Excerpt: 

The paper’s coverage of Adolf Hitler’s Germany in the decade before World War II is an early example of its narrative manipulation, Rindsberg writes. 

So glowing was its picture of the regime that the Nazis regularly included New York Times reports in their own radio programs. “That’s because the Times bureau chief in Berlin, Guido Enderis, was a Nazi collaborator,” Rindsberg said. 

Under Enderis, bureau reporters won Pulitzer Prizes as they drew on Hitler’s propaganda to cover the 1936 Berlin Olympics and the 1938 Munich Conference, when Britain and France tried to appease the fuhrer by giving him a chunk of Czechoslovakia. Enderis even parroted the Nazis’ claim that Poland invaded Germany to spark the war in Europe in 1939, not the other way around. ...

The Times lied about the Holodomor because the Times owners supported Communism.  The Times owners knew that Durante was covering up for Stalin and approved. 

 “Duranty was instructed by his higher-ups to cover the Ukraine famine in that way,” Rindsberg said. “At the time, The New York Times was actively pushing for American recognition of the Soviet Union,” he explained. The US business establishment, led by the Chamber of Commerce, was on board, and Soviet rhetoric meshed with the Ochs-Sulzberger family’s leftist politics.

Lia Thomas Wins NCAA Division I Title, Robbing Tokyo Olympian Silver Medalist Emma Weyant of First Place Win

 

On Thursday night, William "Lia" Thomas, a biological male who competes on the women's swimming team at the University of Pennsylvania was lauded by the mainstream media for winning an NCAA Division I title after finishing first in the women's 500-yard freestyle event on Thursday evening that took place in Atlanta.




Brought to you by the same demographic that touts "Science"

 


​​From millionaires to Muslims, small subgroups of the population seem much larger to many Americans

 Americans tend to vastly overestimate the size of minority groups. This holds for sexual minorities, including the proportion of 

  • gays and lesbians (estimate: 30%, true: 3%), 
  • bisexuals (estimate: 29%, true: 4%), and 
  • people who are transgender (estimate: 21%, true: 0.6%). 


It also applies to religious minorities, such as 

  • Muslim Americans (estimate: 27%, true: 1%) and 
  • Jewish Americans (estimate: 30%, true: 2%). 
And we find the same sorts of overestimates for racial and ethnic minorities, such as 

  • Native Americans (estimate: 27%, true: 1%), 
  • Asian Americans (estimate: 29%, true: 6%), and 
  • Black Americans (estimate: 41%, true: 12%).

A parallel pattern emerges when we look at estimates of majority groups: People tend to underestimate rather than overestimate their size relative to their actual share of the adult population. For instance, we find that people underestimate the proportion of American adults who are 
  • Christian (estimate: 58%, true: 70%) and the 
  • the proportion who have at least a high school degree (estimate: 65%, true: 89%). 

The most accurate estimates involved groups whose real proportion fell right around 50%, including the percentage of 
  • American adults who are married (estimate: 55%, true: 51%) and 
  • have at least one child (estimate: 58%, true: 57%).

Misperceptions of the size of minority groups have been identified in prior surveys, which observers have often attributed to social causes: fear of out-groups, lack of personal exposure, or portrayals in the media. Yet consistent with prior research, we find that the tendency to misestimate the size of demographic groups is actually one instance of a broader tendency to overestimate small proportions and underestimate large ones, regardless of the topic.

The FBI plots the Whitmer kidnapping

Looking for the Off-Ramp

 

All the Warmongers want to fight to the last Ukrainian.  

The ladies at the Virginian Pilot are cheerleading Armageddon.  

Meanwhile, Mark Steyn prefers to stop before the nukes or bioweapons are launched.

The World Health Organization (WHO) advised Ukraine to destroy any dangerous pathogens being kept in research laboratories to prevent "any potential spills" that could harm the public, an official told Reuters news agency on Thursday.

Like other countries, Ukraine has public health laboratories that study dangerous diseases in humans and animals, including Covid-19. Some of these labs have received support from the US, EU and WHO in the past.

Nothing to see here, move along.  (Start Mark Steyn's comments and interview at 6:45)
