“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
We Are Headed Back To The Stone Age
By Mike Huckabee
Here’s a lesson in why it’s so hard to tell real demands from “social justice warriors” from hoaxes created by people mocking social justice warriors. It’s almost impossible to make the hoaxes more ridiculous than the real thing. But craven leftists filled with white liberal guilt don’t care out ludicrous they are; they just hear “Jump!” and ask, “How high?”
My question: How high were the officials at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who approved urinating away $50,000 on this?
They actually spent 50 large to move Chamberlain Rock, a 42-ton boulder that had been sitting on campus since the dawn of time, after some leftwing activist students declared it a "racist monument." Why? It’s named after Thomas Chrowder Chamberlin, former university president and geologist. He’s never been accused of anything racist (although I’m sure he was a racist, as was everyone who isn’t in 100% agreement on all things with a 2021 social justice warrior.) But one newspaper article, one time way back in 1925, referred to the rock by a racist name. That's it: that's the extent of this rock's connection to racism. But naturally, that’s so triggering to students who know zip about history and have never even read a newspaper that $50,000 had to be spent to haul it off campus lest it start them literally shaking with moral outrage.
The college says private donations paid for it, but so what? That doesn't make it any less of a pointless waste of money. If they really wanted to help black Americans, why not give those 50,000 smackers to, say, the United Negro College Fund? But that would be missing the point, as any attempt to apply common sense to modern leftism is bound to do. The money is gone, the rock is gone, and people who might have actually benefited from that cash are left like Charlie Brown on Halloween, moaning, "I got a rock." But the leftists can enjoy their own 42 tons of self-satisfaction.
As Daniel McLaughlin at National Review Online observes, the point is power. The loud activists wanted to see just how far they could push the college leaders and still get their way. And it worked: they caved (a perfect term for people who just moved a giant rock, which I think was also Fred Flintstone’s job.)
If you wonder where the “woke” left is taking America, there’s your answer: back to the Stone Age, thanks to people like this who kowtow to stupid, childish demands. If these administrators want to remove any more rocks, I respectfully suggest they start with the rocks in their heads.
Obama's Birthday Bash
By Mike Huckabee
Happy 60th birthday to former President Obama. And I’m sure it was happy, since it was marked with a lavish party for hundreds of celebrities at his Martha’s Vineyard estate.
Wait, what?! I thought that was going to be radically scaled back to only family and close friends after he got so much criticism for holding a mass gathering while the rest of us are being threatened with more COVID lockdowns if we don’t put on at least two facemasks even while we’re home alone? (Oh, forgot to mention: photos show the Obamas’ guests weren’t wearing facemasks.)
I’m not going to criticize Obama for holding whatever size party he wants to hold, or his guests for attending. It’s a free country (still, I think), and that should be their choice. But if that’s his attitude, then it should apply to everyone. He should stand up for every American’s right to make that choice, and not publicly side with the control freak health officials while privately doing whatever he pleases.
Or to be fair, maybe he wasn’t trying to fudge the truth. Maybe he just really does have several hundred “close friends.” I might find that believable considering the one person he did cut from the guest list: Nancy Pelosi.
Related: The New York Times tried to defend the Obama bash as being okay because it was a “sophisticated, vaccinated” maskless crowd “following all the safety precautions” (except social distancing, avoiding large crowds and wearing masks even if you’re vaccinated.) Meanwhile, Dr. Fauci was bashing participants in the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally for not doing their part to stop the pandemic.
Well, the difference is obvious. Just as the virus didn’t spread at BLM rallies, it also doesn’t spread at posh gatherings of sophisticated, A-list liberals. The COVID virus is not merely a Democrat, it’s an elitist, limousine liberal Democrat. Maybe we could finally get the pandemic to end if Netflix and Warner Books would just offer the coronavirus a few multi-million-dollar book and movie production deals. Then, like other wealthy leftist elitists, it could retire to its own mansion in Martha’s Vineyard and stop ruining the lives of the rest of us.
Cuomo Continues To Resist Stepping Down
By Mike Huckabee
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo continues to resist stepping down, even as the threat of impeachment grows after the state Attorney General’s report detailing multiple accusations of sexual harassment. But that might be only one of his problems, since one of his accusers has dropped her anonymity protection and filed a criminal complaint against him with the Albany sheriff’s office.
In an interview with CBS, Brittany Commisso explained why she hadn’t spoken up before. She said, "People don’t understand that this is the Governor of the State of New York. There are troopers outside. They are not there to protect me, they are there to protect him. I felt as though if I did something to insult him, especially insult him in his own home, it wasn’t going to be him that’s going to get fired or in trouble."
Ms Commisso also probably assumed that the media would cover for the popular Democrat Governor and attack his accuser, smearing her a “nut or slut.” Even now, when forced to face the truth, they still won’t own up to their shameful, partisan actions.
Why is this all so sickeningly familiar to those of who lived through the 1990’s?
Naked Hypocrisy On The Left
By Mike Huckabee
Far-left Rep. Cori Bush didn’t do the Democrat propaganda machine any favors by going on an impassioned defense of defunding the police (a movement they’re trying to claim doesn’t exist, or if it does, uuuuh...the Republicans did it! – Yeah, that’s the ticket!) She made it worse by declaring, with zero self-awareness, that defunding the police has to happen now, while defending her own heavy expenses on private security because she’s so worth it.
She claims she’s gotten threats (like people surrounded by gangs and Antifa thugs thanks to police defunding aren’t under constant threat), and she needs security because her work in Congress is so important (she has to keep “protecting” people by making them less safe.) She declared, “I have private security because my body is worth being on this planet right now.”
I was on Jesse Watters' show on Fox News over the weekend to talk about this stunning display of naked hypocrisy (we’ll overlook the fact that she also threw in her continuing fight for justice for Michael Brown, even though the Obama DOJ found that the “hands up, don’t shoot” story was fiction and Brown was fighting the police officer and trying to take away his gun when he was shot.)
Personally, I’m stunned that America made it for so many years before Cori Bush arrived in Congress to do the great work that’s so important that it makes her life more valuable than her own constituents’ lives. I award her my “Gavin/Cuomo Award for Ultimate Hubris and Hypocrisy” for those who impose rules on others that they would never inflict upon themselves.
Obviously, if the people of St. Louis value their own lives, they will quickly correct the dumb mistake of sending Cori Bush to Congress. But don’t count on it.
I’ll just conclude by pointing out that Cori Bush happily accepted the enthusiastic endorsement of the pro-abortion group NARAL, which said she would be a champion of “reproductive justice,” which is their latest phony euphemism for killing innocent children in the womb.
Why am I not at all surprised that a strong defender of abortion believes that her life is sacred, valuable and worth protecting, but other people’s lives aren’t?
The Switch Has Flipped
By Mike Huckabee
Seems like only a year ago that the media kept telling us that everything President Trump did was illegal. If a foreign dignitary stayed in a Trump hotel, it was a violation of the Emoluments Clause. If his kids made money in businesses they’d started years before he ran for office, it was grounds for investigation. They’re still doing it by siding with the Biden “Justice” Department’s ruling that Congress has the right to paw through his tax returns looking for something to charge him with; or the latest, that confidential conversations with staffers, long protected by executive privilege, are not protected if it’s Trump:
But what a difference a change in Administrations can make! I’ve often said that there must be a giant switch hidden somewhere in DC, and every time the White House changes parties, it gets flipped so that all standards immediately reverse. Check out these examples of the exact same media outlets that hounded Trump over everything he said and did suddenly acting like neutered lapdogs as they try to justify Biden’s open defiance of the Constitution and the Supreme Court in extending the rent moratorium he’d already admitted he had no power to extend.
A Ridiculous Idea
By Mike Huckabee
I must be getting old. I can remember when proponents of same-sex marriage said there was no reason for Christians to oppose it if it violated their beliefs because they would NEVER be forced to participate in a same-sex wedding, so it would have no effect on them. Boy, those were the days!
But in my dotage, I’m thankful that I also have a sharp enough memory to recall when some people argued that the same SCOTUS ruling would be used to try to justify legalizing bigamy and polyamory. After all, if any consenting adults of any gender could legally marry anyone they claimed to love, why limit that to only two people? Of course, anyone who dared bring up that point was branded as a homophobic hater making a vile and ridiculous argument that would never be made seriously.
So please note that Harvard Law is now working with the Polyamory Legal Advocacy Coalition (PLAC), which is supported by the Harvard Law’s LGBTQ+ Advocacy Clinic, to advocate for recognizing polyamorous relationships and to “advance the civil and human rights of polyamorous individuals, communities, and families through legislative advocacy, public policy, and public education."
This is why you have to feel sorry for satirists who have the thankless task of trying to think up ridiculous ideas faster than American universities can endorse them.
