Reaping What they Sow

For decades now “climate scientists” have been making dire predictions, setting timelines and proclaiming that “tipping points” will be reached on some arbitrary date.

Of course those predictions never come to fruition and the tipping point dates keep getting moved back and back and back.

But after being indoctrinated from birth that the end is near, we’re killing the planet and if we don’t change our ways before x date, we’re all doomed, many of the younger generation seem to be convinced that it’s too late.

The problem is, if it’s too late, why bother?

I mean, if we’re past the “tipping point” and the planet is doomed no matter what we do, why give up a life of relative wealth and ease for nothing? Heck, we might was well live it up until the end right?

Which has the climate alarmists exclaiming “oh crap” and desperately trying to wave away the fact that, according to their past predictions, it’s already too late and has been for a long time.

Charles is 27 and lives in California. His quirky TikTok videos about news, history, and politics have earned him more than 150,000 followers.

In the video in question, recorded in October 2021, he decided it was time for a confession.

“I am a climate doomer,” he said. “Since about 2019, I have believed that there’s little to nothing that we can do to actually reverse climate change on a global scale.”

Climate doomism is the idea that we are past the point of being able to do anything at all about global warming – and that mankind is highly likely to become extinct.

That’s wrong, scientists say, but the argument is picking up steam online.

Wait, what? That’s wrong? But you’ve been telling us for decades that we’re going to destroy the earth. NOW you tell us it was wrong?

They thought the doomsaying would be able to convince everyone to basically give up modern society for our own good. It hasn’t happened fast enough or thoroughly enough so now, not only do they have to keep trying to convince “climate deniers” (what a stupid term) to give up everything that has made modern life possible, but now they have to try to convince the gullible kids that they’ve been duping all this time that, contrary to what we’ve been telling you, it’s actually not too late, so you still have to give up everything that has made modern life possible…to SAVE THE WORLD.

It would be funny if it weren’t such a serious topic.

And then they act surprised

This is the way it always goes.

First the left starts instituting rules against their enemies.

Then they start using those rules against their own.

John Fuller … added that he “full-heartedly” believes that Black people are superior.

Members of the student government who were uncomfortable with Fuller’s comments reported the comments to the Office of Institutional Equity.

And Mr. Fuller will be absolutely SHOCKED that his fellow leftists reported him to the thought police.

They never think their rules will be applied to themselves.

I completely disagree with Mr. Fuller’s comment that “black people are superior” but I unreservedly defend his right to say it.

If people aren’t allowed to say what they really think, how are we supposed to know which ones are racist assholes with whom we do not wish to associate?

By the way, if blacks are inherently superior, why isn’t Africa the economic, political, military and scientific powerhouse of the world?

For the record, I don’t believe that blacks are inherently inferior. I don’t think skin tone has a thing to do with it. Cultural norms are what make a particular group more successful than another. The reason asians are highly successful in academic and scientific pursuits isn’t because of their sallow complexion or uniquely shaped eyes, it’s because their culture places very high emphasis on academic achievement and hard work. The graduation rates of blacks isn’t 15 points lower than whites because of relative melanin levels: it’s because their culture tells them that academic success is “acting white” and makes them a “sellout”.

In my experience, blacks who don’t buy into those fallacies are just as successful as whites and don’t need “affirmative action” policies to give them an artificial advantage to do so. I’ve had a very long and varied work life and I’ve worked with many, many blacks who had no need of liberal white patronization for them to succeed.

Why they can’t have nice things

In an illustration of why the Dickey Amendment was enacted, fake news from the CDC via BBC:

Gun deaths were the leading killer of US children in 2020

Of course, to get there, they had to classify “children” as being up to age 19.

the rise in gun-related deaths among Americans between the ages of one and 19 was part of an overall 33.4% increase in firearm homicides nationwide.

Not mentioned is the fact that teenagers make up a large portion of the gang-banger community.

That’s the “bait and switch”. When most people think of “children” they think of innocent grade-schoolers being killed in accidents – not 17 year old gang bangers dying in a shootout over a drug deal gone bad…which is mostly what the statistics are about.

That’s how fake news is created. It’s based on actual data, but framed in a way that is intentionally misleading. And that’s why the CDC was rightfully prevented from this type of “research” for decades…because when given half a chance, they don’t provide objective information designed to inform the public, they provide political propaganda designed to advance an agenda.

Something that no taxpayer funded, governmental organization should ever be allowed to do.

Luckily, the CDC has pretty much burned any credibility it may once have had over the Wuhan Flu madness, so I doubt that their renewed interest in publishing anti-gun propaganda will gain any traction outside of the usual anti-gun suspects.

Masks on a Plane

I just got back from a business trip to Spokane, WA (by “just” I mean I got home last night after midnight).

On the way to Spokane on Monday, masks were required on the flight. The next day, while on the job, I find out that shortly after I landed, the mask mandate had been overturned by a federal judge and all the airlines had immediately rescinded the requirement. So on the trip out, I missed out on being able to fly mask free by a couple of hours.

Then I hear that they’re appealing the ruling, for our own safety of course, because we heathens are too stupid to be trusted with our own health and safety.

I read somewhere yesterday that some polling company manufactured conducted a poll that said something like 55% of the population supports the mask mandate.

Well, unless the respondents to the poll never fly and support the mandate out of spite, or a majority of people completely lack self control and won’t do what they think is right unless forced, those numbers are slightly exaggerated. I’d say about 20% of the people in the airport and on the flights yesterday wore masks.

I took this picture at the Denver airport yesterday. I took it to show that there were no seats in the gate area and everyone was having to sit on the floor (how ridiculous is that?) but you can get an idea of how many people were wearing masks.

I suppose it’s possible there are a lot of people around who think people should wear masks but won’t do it themselves unless forced, but I doubt it.

I think the mask mandates are supremely unpopular and, if the Biden Administration succeeds in finding a judge that overturns the overturn and people are forced back into masks on airplanes, there are going to be a lot of unhappy people becoming even more unhappy.

Translating Democrat into English

Democrat:

Democrats say they’ve done a lousy job at highlighting their accomplishments in a year plus of unified power in Washington, and are blaming this on the possibility they will suffer major losses in November’s midterm elections.

Some Democrats are baffled at Biden’s low numbers given what they think is a list of robust accomplishments.

English:

The voters are too stupid to understand how great we are and how much better their lives are with us in charge. It’s not our fault that the average American voter isn’t intelligent enough to grasp the nuances of how wonderful things are under a democrat regime.

Told Ya

As I said yesterday, the usual suspects are lamenting that the Brooklyn Subway shooter wasn’t white.

Touré took to Twitter following the release of the details of the suspect and lamented the revelation about his race. He wrote, “Police say the suspect is a male Black.’ Damn. Damn. Damn.”

Not only wasn’t he white, based on his social media, he was an extremist-supporting the Nation of Islam, BLM, and virulently opposing all things Trump.

Doesn’t fall under the “white people are the most significant domestic terrorism threat” narrative so this story won’t be in the media long. In a few days it’ll be like it never happened.

Someone else didn’t get the memo

Overheard in the news room:

“Darn it, don’t they know it’s supposed to be white people committing these atrocities?

The suspect was wearing green construction vest and grey sweatshirt, and is described as being a 5 foot 5 black male with a “heavy build.”

We can’t use this…it doesn’t support the narrative.

Oh well, at least we can exploit these innocent deaths to beat the gun control drum, so I suppose it’s not a total loss, but we can’t give it the coverage we need because it implies that black people actually commit crimes sometimes. We can’t have that.

Can some white person…ANY white person please commit a mass shooting so we have something to saturate the media with to distract from Biden’s horrible economy and the revelations about the Biden family’s corruption? Please?”

Researchers say they want to blame Climate Change so that’s what they’ll do

This was one of the most confusing stories I’ve ever read.

First the author asserts:

The results of this study show that the damage inflicted by storms in the region was exacerbated by global warming, researchers said.

followed three sentences later by:

However, the scientists say they cannot directly link the frequency of the storms to climate change due to a lack of long-term data.

Um…is it just me or does that seem just slightly contradictory?

Interestingly, every direct quote of the “scientists” involved supports the second assertion, none support the first.

they say “the precise contribution of climate change to the event could not be quantified, due to the absence of comprehensive historical records of rainfall in the region”.

and yet, the researchers contend:

“Again we are seeing how the people with the least responsibility for climate change are bearing the brunt of the impacts. Rich countries should honour their commitments and increase much-needed funding for adaptation, and for compensating the victims of extreme events driven by climate change,” Dr Otto said.

In other words, the scientists have no actual evidence or proof that climate change has anything to do with the storms, but they want to believe that so that’s the conclusion they’re going to reach. So pay up.

Color me unconvinced.

Setting blacks up for failure

I’ve long said that the Democrats and leftists are just as racist as they were from before the civil all the way through the end of Jim Crow and segregation – they just manifest it in different ways.

Who is the racist: the person who believes that all people are equally capable of success when provided equality of opportunity – or the person who believes members of certain races are incapable of success without the assistance of whites?

I think it’s pretty clear.

Here’s another sign that leftists are racist and are actively trying to undermine the ability of blacks and hispanics to succeed in life:

The Clover Park School District debated its new “culturally responsive” student discipline policy. It means student discipline would not be consistent based on conduct. Instead, a school considers a student’s race and background. It would likely offer harsher punishments to white students, even if the conduct is identical to that of a Black or Hispanic student.

In order to be successful in life, one MUST learn certain lessons at a young age. One of those lessons is discipline.

By allowing black and hispanic students to act out with lesser consequences than whites, they are failing to teach this important lesson to minority students and are blatantly, without question, setting them up for future failure.

In the immortal words of Coach Boone (played by Denzel Washington) in the modern classic film “Remember The Titans”:

Now I may be a mean cuss. But I’m the same mean cuss with everybody out there on that football field. I don’t give a damn about how sensitive these kids are, especially the black kids. You ain’t doin’ these kids a favor by patronizing them. You crippling them; You crippling them for life.

No less true today than it was in 2000 when the movie was released or in 1971 when the events depicted in the movie occurred.

There is no way that the highly educated, intelligent people who run the school system in Clover Park Washington don’t understand this concept. The only conclusion can be that it is intentional. They are knowingly sabotaging the development of generations of black and hispanic students.

That sure seems like an overtly racist act to me, and further evidence that the racial attitudes of the left have never changed from the days of Jefferson Davis, Bull Connor and Woodrow Wilson, they’ve just changed tactics.

Cognitive Dissonance

Miriam Webster should update their definition.

All they need is this image.

“Non-binary” t-shirts in both men and women’s styles.

I seriously can’t stop chuckling.

By the way, I downloaded and duplicated the image because I don’t want it to disappear at some point in the future, not because I’m trying to steal someone else’s thunder.

As linked above, I got it from hogewash.com
