A glance at some of last week’s noteworthy news and Leftist lunacy.
Left Sets Record For Politicizing Tragedy
Progressive pundits and celebrities appeared to set a new record for the speed with which they politicized a mass shooting, with some sending out pro-gun control messaging before the shooter was confirmed to be in police custody and the blood had barely begun to dry.
The Left’s typical response to such shootings — abstract calls for stricter gun control, a propaganda offensive against the AR-15, and the vicious vilification of the NRA and the GOP — is nauseating and the response to the Parkland massacre was no different. It betrays a fundamental lack of knowledge regarding the Constitution, current firearms, and firearms themselves.
Perhaps worse of all, the Left seems entirely unconcerned with discovering just why exactly a disturbing number of teenage boys suddenly seem to want to murder their peers. But of course, as Ben Harris-Quinney, Chairman of the Bow Group, tweeted: “The gun is no more present in American society than a century ago-Liberals are of course so keen to blame the #gun rather than the assailant because to blame the assailant would be to acknowledge the sickness and failure of the unsustainable society they have created.”
Christian Parents Lose Custody of “Transgender” Daughter After Refusing to Support Her “Transition”
The Orwellian transgender nightmare marches on. Life Site reports that Ohio authorities removed a 17-year-old girl from the care of her Christian parents after they refused to support her “transition”. The story is almost too depressing for words, but it illustrates the full extent to which satanic gender identity theory has been mainstreamed. When one reads stories such as this one can’t help but recall H.L. Mencken’s well-known observation: “Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”
Antifa Continues Its War Against Black Metal
Well, once again the militant morons of Antifa have done it again, pressuring La Poisson Rouge in New York City to cancel a March show by the Norwegian black metal band Taake. The reason? There exists a single photo of Taake’s lead singer with a swastika painted on his chest, something he explicitly stated was done purely to offend and without any political intention.
Mitt Romney Goes Full Liberal
“I think we can’t just sit and wait and hope for things to get better,” the twice-failed GOP presidential candidate said, reported The Salt Lake Tribune. “It is wrong and unacceptable for children in our schools to fear for their lives,” he said. “We must take action to prevent this again.”
But wait, there’s more. Not only did Romney feel the need to advocate for anti-Second Amendment gun control measures, he also delivered the cuckiest of virtue signals regarding immigration. “Utah welcomes legal immigrants from around the world. Washington sends immigrants a message of exclusion,” he said, reported Reuters.
