This Week in Social Justice Warrior-Dom

A fond look back at all the things that had ultra-P.C. jihadists OUTRAGED ... before they forget all about them in just a few days.

What anti-police sentiment?

Following the highly publicized shooting deaths of African American men in Minnesota and Louisiana by police officers - one of whom was a suspected Crip who made antisemitic and homophobic comments on Facebookmay or may not have been involved in a robbery hours before his slaying and whose official rap sheet consisted of two misdemeanor marijuana charges and 55 driving violations and the other a convicted child rapist with a litany of domestic abuse charges - demonstrations broke out all across America. The most (in)famous one of all, of course, was July 7 in Dallas when an incensed black nationalist actively targeted white cops and wound up murdering five officers and injuring 11 others. Since then, there have been numerous instances of irate individuals - some perpetrators of color and some who are blindingly white - seek to "avenge" the some odd 250 killings a year (of which 180 or so are completely justified, per 2015 Washington Post findings) of black men by police officials. Wondering what sort of, ahem, attempts to achieve "racial justice" have transpired in the States since? Well, here's an abridged list, amigos...

Shortly after the Dallas shooting, left-leaning media outlets everywhere started circulating photographs of a young woman in a flowing dress being apprehended by policemen in riot gear. While faux-journalistic outlets praised the image for its "symbolic power," Dallas Police Chief David Brown gave quite possibly the most literally powerful speech about the Black Lives Matter movement to date in a media briefing July 11. The full video is below, but I'm going to highlight a few of his key talking points for those of you that don't have the time for all 49 minutes of it (even though I strongly advise you to find the time, if at all possible.)

For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Brown, he's had one of the most ironically tragic lives of anyone you'll ever hear about. His younger brother was slain by drug dealers and his son, David Brown, Jr., got high on PCP, shot and killed a police officer and then got gunned down by his father's own officers. Still, he managed to earn an MBA, graduate from the FBI National Academy and rise his way up the rungs from a rank and file street cop to the leader of the nation's eighth largest police force. 

And if anybody could rightly be called a "voice of reason" during these turbulent times, I don't think there is anyone in the whole country whose words we ought to be heeding more than his - no matter what side of the aisle you prefer your politics

Germany knows how to prioritize

You know, in a world in which 200 plus people got killed in an attempted military coup in Turkeyan incensed militant Islamist splattered 200 plus people with a truck in southern France and a 17-year-old with an ax screaming "Allahu Akbar" tried to hack up 18 people on a train in Bavaria, you might want to at least think about the possibility that, at some point in time, at least one pissed off Muslim person may consider attempting to kill a whole bunch of people in your neck of the woods to prove some kind of abstruse political/religious point. And if you are Germany - a nation that has pretty much taken down its borders and replaced it with a gigantic "Middle Eastern migrants welcome" mat - perhaps you would be especially cautious. Alas, even after new data reveals that 2,000 men of Arabian descent attacked women during New Year's festivities and 120 police officers were injured in pro-immigration riots in Berlin, German officials have decided to turn their eyes, ears and fists towards people who are engaging in far-right "verbal radicalism" on social media. As of July 13, at least 40 homes have been raided by the anti-discrimination gestapo because their tenants and owners are believed to have posted antisemitic or anti-Islamic things online. "Violent language is unacceptable and lays the groundwork for real violence," Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere rationalizes the thought crime pogrom. Indeed, I think we can all agree that targeting people who post swastikas on Tumblr is a much greater social imperative than cracking down on lesser matters, such as a police-confirmed epidemic of migrant-perpetrated child rape

The future, regrettably, is upon us

Tomorrow, as some people like to say, is coming whether we want it to or not, and as such, perhaps it would benefit all of us if we momentarily reflected on the next wave of post-post-post-liberalism, hooray-for-globalization, multiculturalism uber alles defenders of the faith ... some of whom are literally in diapers at the moment. Take heed, folks: these are the sorts of things the under 30 - and in some cases, under 15 - set embrace as the gospel today, and it looks like their fervor for the new liberal orthodoxy is only going to get more intense (and immune to reason) as they grow older...

And perhaps giving us a taste of where the secular-progressive utopian global order may be heading over the next few years, Elanora Heights Public School in Australia has issued a mandate forbidding its children from engaging in that ever-disruptive, emotionally damaging and unabashedly prejudicial hate activity we Yanks sometimes call ... clapping. "The practice has been adopted to respect members of our school community who are sensitive to noise," a spokesperson for the Sydney-area primary school stated. "When you attend an assembly, teachers will prompt the audience to conduct a silent cheer if it is needed." Furthermore, the school said that these "silent cheers" also double as an effective means of expending "children's energy and reduce fidgeting." Well, those are all valid reasons to (non-verbally, of course) stomp our feet and raise the roof, in my book: who among us doesn't want a generation of lethargic youths willing to accept whatever they are indoctrinated with without so much as daring to critically assess it in charge of our health care, finances and government policy? Aye, the silence is indeed deafening

An (anti)social media double standard?

In the great ongoing cultural struggle for the hearts and minds of the masses, social media has slowly transformed into an implement of ideological warfare. Indeed, entire websites have been erected to scour Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr for contrarian viewpoints despicable hate speech with the sole intent of getting people fired for dare saying things aggrieved progressivists don't want anyone to hear. Interestingly, a series of recent shamings spurred by Internet vigilantes reveals what appears to be a double standard regarding how individuals are punished for social media postings depending on who the target of the ire is. For example, in Atlanta, an Emmy-nominated news producer saw his career sink down the commode for describing Black Lives Matter protesters as "uncivilized turds" and suggesting that an effective way to clear heavy demonstrator activity was to bomb them from above. Pretty much everybody and their mother understands why this Charles Beau Menefee fellow got axed, but what are we to make of the treatment of one Kalyn Chapman James, who was given a far less severe punishment from her employer - and free publicity on CNN to issue her mea culpa - after describing the Dallas gunman who killed five police officers as "a martyr" and bluntly stating "I don't feel sad for the officers that lost their lives?" Furthermore, the not-at-all-ironic Web lynch mobs didn't come out in droves to "dox" a number of hardline black separatists, like People's New Black Panther Party "National Minister of Defense" Babu Omowale, who cheerily stated "the fact that Micah just got five of the bastards, that's what got you all upset right now?" Nor were the keyboard warriors rallying to bring Yafeuh Balogan - co-founder of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, which has the stated agenda of arming as many black dissidents as possible - to virtual justice after he declared "I have no remorse for the Dallas Police Officer shot downtown, it's about time" and that the killer "shall be celebrated one day?" And where were the neckbeards and turkeynecks when Kenmonte Gilmore uploaded a video of himself stalking a police car at a drive thru, brandishing a handgun and describing how he'd like to kill the policeman inside it? Furthermore, Jennifer Lopez, Ian Astbury and a tenor who changed the words of the Canadian National Anthem at this year's All-Star baseball game all had to publicly apologize for declaring "all lives matter" (yes, stating that everyone's life - regardless of their skin hue - is significant is indeed considered offensive, somehow), but what was the punishment for Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell after he posted a photograph online of a hooded cartoon character slitting a white cop's esophagus open? Outside of being issued a sternly-worded letter of reprimand from the Browns management, absolutely nothingIs it just me, or does all of this curious inconsistency from the self-ordained Internet "hate watch" platoons at least suggest that the virtual vigilantes are more concerned about promoting their own biased perspectives than meting out equally applied and enforced social penalties? After all, if the actual police are prone to misconduct, shouldn't we also be concerned about the thought police being susceptible to the same kind of corruption?

Columnist convinced Pokemon will
lead to more black men being killed by police

By now, you've no doubt heard plenty of stories about the horrific/grimly humorous places Pokemon GO monsters have popped up (my personal favorite is either the gold-chasing Meowth showing up in the President of Israel's office or the poison gas-spewing Pokemon spawning at a Holocaust museum.) According to Medium shit-generator ... I mean, acclaimed Medium scribe Omari Akil, however, the mobile app sensation actually has a far more sinister purpose: "The premise of Pokemon GO asks me to put my life in danger if I chose to play it as it is intended and with enthusiasm," he writes. "Let's just go ahead and add Pokemon Go to the extremely long list of things white people can do without fear of being killed, while Black people have to realistically be wary." Akil's line of thinking is hard to decipher - be it his call to capitalize "black" but not white and kind of sort of overlook the fact that most police shooting victims are Caucasian - and I assure you, at no point in his meandering screed does he come anywhere close to making a cogent argument to justify his crypto-racist paranoia. That said, his spiel is nonetheless filled to the brim with some awe-inspiring quotes, the best of which I've outlined below:
"When I was introduced to Professor Willow, who tasked me with assisting him with his research by catching as many Pokemon that I could, I giggled like a middle school girl being approached by her secret crush on the schoolyard."

"Like a normal adult, I started up my computer, played a couple of hours of 'Overwatch,' poked around on Facebook for another hour while in bed, then went to sleep."

"I spent less than 20 minutes outside. Five of those minutes were spent enjoying the game. One of those minutes I spent trying to look as pleasant and nonthreatening as possible as I walked past a somewhat visible disturbed white woman on her way to the bus stop. I spent the other 14 minutes being distracted form the game by thoughts of the countless Black Men who have had the police called on them because they looked 'suspicious' or wondering what a second amendment exercising individual might do if I walked past their window a 3rd or 4th time in search of a Jigglypuff." 

Judging by his decision to explain why he created a black female avatar ("they are so few represented in video games"), tell us that he keeps all of his information in his right pocket and use the phrase "there is a statistically disproportionate chance" five times throughout the article, I'd venture to guess this guy is probably pretty deep on the autism spectrum. And of course, those with ASDs are known for a glorious lack of self awareness, which totally doesn't manifest itself in the article's closing statement "honestly, I wish this was a joke post or a satire of some sort." 

Oh, don't we all, Senor Akil. Don't we all

Regardless of race, creed, ethnicity or national origin, some people are still some downright awful motherfuckers

In today's increasingly balkanized global society (yeah, an oxymoron, I know), all the news about cops shooting black people and black people killing cops and Islamic people killing tons of European people and U.S. coalition-led strikes killing a whole shit load of innocent Syrians tends to get people playing the "in-group game" - meaning, they stick to whatever artificially designated enclave they most identify with and yell like hell whenever anything bad happens to anybody who looks like 'em. It's a shame we have to adhere so closely to that superficial herd dynamic, especially because there's so much atrocious carnage being perpetrated by people of EVERY skin hue you can think of. White, black, yellow, brown, tan, red ... as the ghastly incidents below demonstrate, pieces of human shit no doubt come in all sorts of colors

And just so you are reminded of how great the continent of Africa is, the BBC recently ran an intriguing - and by intriguing, I mean nauseating - article about the "hyenas" of Malawi. Before you click you way on over and take in what you think is an in-depth expose on barbaric animal maltreatment, let me burst your bubble: the feature actually takes a look at the life and times of Eric Aniva, a 40-year-old man who is paid $4 to $7 to have sex with village girls just reaching puberty. "In Nsanje, teenage girls after their first menstruation, are made to have sex over a three-day period, to mark their passage from childhood to womanhood," the BBC enlightens us. "If the girls refuse, it's believed disease or some fatal misfortune could befall their families or the village as a whole." Yeah, it sounds horrible, but why not let the man himself explain his inexcusable actions? "Most of those I have slept with are girls, school-going girls," Aniva is quoted. "Some girls are just 12 or 13 years old, but I prefer them older. All these girls find pleasure in having me as their hyena. They actually are proud and tell other people 'that this man is a real man, he knows how to please a woman.'" 

'Black Olives Matter' sign at pizzeria draws outrage

In Albuquerque, N.M., Paisano's Regional Italian Cuisine has come under fire for advertising its proprietary tapenade with the punny slogan "black olives matter." Alas, some aggrieved supporters of the Black Lives Matter, uh, hashtag(?), were none too happy with the restaurant's co-option of the ubiquitous social movement/social media catchphrase (which, interestingly enough, is trademarked by a Houston area polymath who graduated from Yale Law School at the age of 22 who also holds the trademark for "brown lives matter" and "Latin lives matter," as well.) Before long, Paisano's Facebook feed was deluged with comments from irked individuals who believed that the "Black Lives Matter" phrase was too "serious" to poke fun at. "You simply wish to rub salt in an ugly festering wound which evil minded people refuse to allow to heal," states a particularly dramatic commentator named Claudia Sanchez, who self-references as a person of color. "The civilized world no longer has any tolerance for your hateful public display of what passes to you as humor." Per LoveCreem SkateWax, another keyboard defender of the faith: "Shame, shame, shame your words and non-consideration are reall (sic) too much to keep the sign up so the world can see your true colors I think the nazi's (sic) told the Jews similar things." 

Alas, proving Newton's Third Law of Motion has just as much merit as a social science as it does a physical one, people pissed off that people were pissed off at the "black olives matter" flap rallied behind Paisano's online and business at the brick and mortar restaurant positively exploded. "I can't count the number of customer's orders who've included adding black olives to every dish ordered," Paisano's posted on its Facebook page shortly after the controversy got picked up by the news wires. "Pizzas, sandwiches, pasta dishes with 'double black olives please!' all day long. So much that we almost ran out and ordered more.

Saturday Night Live starlet absolutely "rekt" after getting into war of words with "dangerous faggot" online

Forget all of the Taylor Swift/Kim Kardashian drama; the absolute best Twitter war of the summer had to have been the brief - but no doubt intense - battle between Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones and self-described "dangerous faggot" Milo Yiannopolous, perhaps the world's most (in)famous homosexual alt-right blogger. The fun began when Milo posted a scathing review of the all-ovaries edition of Ghostbusters, in which he described the film as "a standard bearer for the social justice left ... full of female characters that are simply stand-ins for men plus a black character worthy of a minstrel show." Well, Jones wasn't appreciative of Milo's criticism, so she made the rookie mistake of calling him out on Twitter - which, in addition to "triggering" a slew of hateful, hipster-racist comments from Milo backers, the bulk of them including off-handed references to gorillas - got the controversial Breitbart columnist to yank off his gloves and start swinging for the fences. "If it first you don't succeed (because your work is terrible), play the victim," Milo hit back. This led to Leslie acting nonplussed to learn he was a popular columnist who "gets his readers thru supporting hate," which in turn resulted in Milo riposting "Barely literate. America needs better schools!" Leslie then retweeted a fellow Twitterer who called Milo "an Uncle Tom of Gay ppl" This dovetailed into Leslie blocking Milo from her profile, which goaded him into simply stating "rejected by yet another black dude." Leslie then went on a Tweet storm, eventually getting correspondence from the CEO of Twitter about all of the blowback she was getting (in case you were wondering, her full comment was "Twitter, I understand you got free speech I get it. But there has to be some guidelines when you let it spread like that.") After a gaggle of celebrities like Judd Apatow and Paul Feig came out of the virtual woodworks to lend Jones their affirmation, she announced she had suffered so much emotional duress over the Twitter war that was quitting the social media platform altogether (and by "altogether," she meant "about a week.") And, shortly thereafter, it was announced that Milo was banned for life from ever opening a Twitter account again. 

As you would expect, however, Milo didn't take the perma-ban lying down. In an interview with Breitbart, he stated the following:

"With the cowardly suspension of my account, Twitter has confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and Black Lives Matter extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives. Twitter is holding me responsible for the actions of fans and trolls using the special pretzel logic of the left. Where are the Twitter police when Justin Bieber's fans cut themselves on his behalf? Like all acts of the totalitarian regressive left, this will blow up in their faces, netting me more adoring fans. We're winning the culture war, and Twitter just shot themselves in the foot. This is the end of Twitter. Anyone who cares about free speech has been sent a clear message: you're not welcome on Twitter." 

Adding even more, how you say, intrigue to the story, after Milo's ban, a lengthy list of Leslie Jones' own Twitter diatribes insulting and belittling white people under the guise of humor soon came to light. Alas, despite Jones engaging in precisely the sort of caustic, derogatory jokery that got Milo banned from the service, no one outside of the far, far alt-right blogosphere has even floated the idea that she ought to be barred from the service for her tongue-in-cheek hate-mongering, as well. 

And heyyy, speaking of racist comments directed towards African-American individuals on Twitter...

Racial slurs abound from liberals in wake of black police chief's speech at Republican National Convention

There is a tremendous passage in The Autobiography of Malcolm X in which the former Malcolm Little describes liberals "as the world's worst hypocrites" for turning a blind eye to the horrific conditions blacks faced in northern ghettos, ignoring the breakdown of the African-American family and creating cyclical poverty through self-sufficiency-eliminating "entitlement" programs. While the late, great X was primarily lambasting the Freedom Riders and their ilk in his classic 1965 text, those very words could just as easily be applied to today's "anti-racist" democratic supporters, who have effectively turned multiculturalism into a national religion. Alas, despite their absolute abhorrence of any and all "racist" thought patterns, they don't really seem to have as much of a disdain for the prejudicial rhetoric when the person of color being targeted just so happens to espouse conservative viewpoints

Nobody knows this better than Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, an outspoken African-American critic of the Black Lives Matter movement. Following a hilarious exchange on CNN that had anchor Don Lemon so flabbergasted the network had to take a commercial break until he could regain his professional composure, Mr. Clarke took the stage of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where he criticized BLM supporters for playing at least a partial role in the national uptick in anti-police sentiment. As the comments below demonstrate, not a whole lot of African American folks took too kindly to Clarke's commentary...

And if you are wondering just how widespread - and accepted - this bigotry towards Republican-leaning African Americans is ... well, it's pretty damn entrenched in the psyche of the contemporary, "racially-conscious" liberal, it sadly appears. 

To avenge Sanders, Bernouts vow gas attack at Democratic National Convention

There are many, many ways to show your dissatisfaction with the American political hegemony. You can write a subversive, satirical blog criticizing the powers that be while furtively suggesting ways said officials could perhaps improve society. You can grab a piece of poster board and stand on a street corner and scream and yell until your veins are almost popping out of your neck. You can record songs, make movies, write long, meandering screeds, start a petition, cry about it on Facebook, send letters to your congressperson and if all else fails, you can always attempt to scale the White House fence and get shot to death by D.C.'s finest. Alas, some outraged Bernie Sanders supporters have decided that the best way to raise a stink about their dislike for Hilary Clinton and the Democratic delegate system is to ... well, literally raise a stink at next week's Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. According to the U.S. News & World Report, the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign is collecting canned beans for a pre-DNC dinner, with the "goal" of amassing enough legume-loaded individuals inside the Wells Fargo Center to fart Hilary Clinton out of the building. "The fart-in is to raise attention about things that really stink in our society and one of them is our health care financing system," says one Bernie supporter who plans on engaging in silent (but deadly?) protest. "It shows the level of absolute disgust that we're at," stated another planned pooter, "we think we're going to remember 2016 as the year we begin to bury the the two corporate political parties." 

Well, if the Bernouts are filled with as much hot air as their political idol, the proposed "fart-in" will be a smashing success - indeed, the smell of "disappointment" may never leave the building, pending enough Sandernistas make it to the convention

...and a few headlines that speak for themselves...
