The choice is clear
As if there weren’t enough issues to mobilize voters on both sides in the upcoming election, Thursday’s news brought two more.
For Republicans, a vast caravan of Central Americans, up to 4,000 strong, is heading northward with the intention of crossing the US border illegally. President Trump is threatening to send the military and close the border if Mexico doesn’t stop the caravan. Trump says this is the result of Democrats stonewalling (ironically) all his efforts to impose control on America’s borders, and their intention to impose open borders, abolish ICE and repeal immigration laws if they are elected.
On the other side, Indiana petitioned the Supreme Court to hear an appeal of a ruling that struck down the state’s limits on abortion as unconstitutional. The law, signed by then-Gov. Mike Pence in 2012, banned selective abortions based on sex, race or ability of the unborn child. Democrats who were willing to do anything – and when they said “anything,” they meant ANYTHING – to stop Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed out of fear that he would support the weakening of Roe v. Wade and abortion will be certainly be trumpeting this story to scare their voters to the polls.
So the choice is clear: if you want the borders to be secure and existing immigration laws passed by bipartisan Congressional votes to be enforced, vote Republican. If you want to allow the unfettered killing of children in the womb because of their race, gender or disability, vote Democrat.
Wow, when you put it that way, the choice really IS clear!
Bulletin from the Language Police Blotter:
Kimberly-Clark is changing the name of a Kleenex product in the UK after complaints that it was sexist. What were known as “Mansize” Kleenex tissues will now be called “Kleenex Extra Large.” The name actually dates back 60 years to a fad in the local area for men to carry large cotton handkerchiefs, which Kleenex hoped to replace. But like lots of things that date back decades (rationality, civility, accepting the results of elections), the left thinks it has to go!
This may be one of the more benign demands for changing language, but it does give rise to one question: Do women really want equal parity in the competition between the sexes for which gender has the biggest noses?
You’d think that a man who is literally named “Prince Charming” would be safe from accusations of being a sexual predator, but not under the current standards.
Parents magazine quoted Hollywood actress Kristen Bell as saying that when she reads the fairy tale “Snow White” to her daughters, ages 3 and 5, she asks them, “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission? Because you cannot kiss someone if they’re sleeping!”
In real life, that’s true. But again, like “Medicare For All” and “Democratic Socialism,” this is a fairy tale. The Prince kissed Snow White to break the witch’s spell and wake her from the sleep of living death. I don’t think Snow White called Gloria Allred after she woke up to file a lawsuit against him. Most people would be grateful not to go through life in a brain-dead coma -- unless they live among Hollywood liberals, where they’d fit right in.
Still, I don’t blame this on Ms. Bell. This insanity was, of course, first voiced by a university professor (as George Orwell pointed out long ago, “There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual can believe them.”) This “gender studies” professor from Japan thought that most of the Princes in fairy tales were going around committing sexual violence without consent.
I wonder if that includes the Frog Prince, who wanted a Princess to kiss him and turn him back into a man? If he’d known what was coming, he probably would’ve said, “Never mind, I’d rather stay a frog!”
Socialism is in vogue, literally.
Teen Vogue – a magazine run by a billion-dollar publishing company and based on getting teenagers to whine for money from their parents to spend on trendy clothing and other ritzy items – is getting flak for running an article attacking capitalism. The writer blames capitalism for poverty and tells teens that the only way to save the world from poverty and pollution is socialism.
(For teens interested in facts that aren’t in Vogue at the moment: Between 1980 and 2006, 80% of people living in poverty worldwide were lifted out of it by the expansion of capitalism. Socialism has not only led to poverty, misery and oppression everywhere it’s imposed – a layout on luxury items in the Venezuelan edition of Teen Vogue would have include toilet paper - but socialist nations such as China and the old East Germany are among the most dangerous polluters in history. In fact, since President Trump pulled the US out of the Paris Climate Accord, America’s CO2 emissions have plummeted thanks to the rising efficiencies of capitalism while the CO2 emissions of the nations attacking him have gone up.)
This is hardly the first time Teen Vogue has attacked the system that’s made Teen Vogue possible and tried to indoctrinate its young readers into failed leftist philosophies. Recent issues have also attacked Fox News and lauded Karl Marx – you know, the type of things teenagers are really interested in.
The good news is that if print periodicals are really headed for (to quote Ronald Reagan, a historic figure teenagers really should be taught about) “the ash heap of history,” then when Teen Vogue arrives there, its writers will feel right at home next to communism.
