Here are a few interesting tidbits that crossed my desk this morning:
Emperor Misha analyzes what might be the dumbest Left-wing assertion I’ve seen in a very long time:
“Cars and other vehicles “have turned into deadly weapons”, and should be banished from cities to stop attacks like the one in Stockholm from happening in future, according to Aftonbladet editorialist Eva Franchell.”
If you have ever wondered, dear LCs, why it is that His Imperial Majesty can’t say “Swedish” without at least chuckling derisively, this should serve as a rather good example.
Apart from the sheer monumental stupidity in demanding that cities be cleared entirely of motor vehicles (who will deliver goods to your stores, Einstein? You’re going to get them there on bicycles?), what is it with this whole “have turned into deadly weapons” retardation? They’ve been “deadly weapons” since they were invented although we have to point out, in all fairness, that so has pretty much everything else. That Number 2 pencil of yours? Don’t make us demonstrate what we can do with that thing, because you won’t like it.
It is a perfect example, so very emblematic of everything that is wrong with the “progressive” nanny totalitarian society: You can’t eliminate danger by banning “dangerous” stuff, because everything is potentially dangerous, from ICBMs to your favorite organic juicer, on to your kid’s pacifier. Do you really want to know how many beautiful babies choke on those things every year? No. No, you don’t. Because if you truly knew just how many things were potentially lethal weapons, then you’d all end your pointless lives immediately. Which, come to think of it…
Read the whole thing, it’s a thing of beauty. A rant as only Misha can deliver.
Of course, I’m sure most of my readers have already heard about Bill O’Reilly getting tossed out of Fox. Now, I’ve been trying to ascertain just what the charges were against him, that Fox would take such drastic action. The worst I’ve yet found, is one woman claiming that Bill told her to “show more cleavage” at some point in time.
Of course, I’ve no idea if it’s even true, and as is common in these scenarios, suddenly several other women have come out to claim that Bill sexually harassed them. The whole thing smells like trumped up bullshit, to be honest. And if the worst claim they have is that he said something mildly inappropriate once, Fox is utterly stupid to can him for it. Is Fox becoming an SJW-converged organization, now?
And I say all this as a guy who really doesn’t even like Bill O’Reilly. If they canned him because he was predictable, plodding, and boring, I’d buy that, and wouldn’t bat an eye at it. But instead, they do this. It’s just like when Trump commented jokingly about “grab ’em by the pussy.” Suddenly everyone is offended, and people have to lose their jobs, and it’s some kind of huge scandal.
This is utterly ridiculous, and Fox should be ashamed of themselves.
Lastly, an Antifa who hit a Trump supporter over the head with a bike lock, nearly knocking him out (you can see him stunned and confused) and drawing massive amounts of blood, has been outed. And in this case, said Trump supporter was doing nothing violent. He was just standing there talking, and the Antifa used a momentary distraction to get away with his assault. Of course, he thought he was safely anonymous. Turns out, he wasn’t. Internet sleuths identified him as San Francisco State University Professor Eric Clanton.
He is now being charged, and has already been scrubbed from the University’s website. He’s done. For reference, here is the original video:
