President Biden kicks over a hornet's nest
President Biden kicked another hornet’s nest with one of his weird off-prompter remarks, this time by claiming that it’s racist when airlines charge “junk fees” for extra room in airline seats.
No, he didn’t mean “junk in the trunk” fees. He was talking about charging more for seats with extra leg room. Exactly how that punishes minorities and marginalized communities more than tall white people is a mystery known only to Joe. Robert Spencer at PJ Media attempted to unravel what he was talking about and found it was complete nonsense from top to bottom.
What happens when autonomy goes nuts
Do you really think that having no respect for the sanctity of life is limited to abortion? We went from first trimester only to right up through the ninth month to denying care to babies already born during “botched” abortions. And now, Canada is expanding this concept even further, and from the other end of life. Canada has allowed medically-assisted suicide since 2016, supposedly for those with a “grievous and irremediable medical condition.” But who’s next? How about helping the mentally ill kill themselves? Or allowing “mature minors” to be euthanized by government doctors without parental consent?
A medical humanities professor told Tucker Carlson, "This is what happens when autonomy just goes nuts,” and medical care is based on cost-benefits analysis instead of respect for the sanctity of life. I might say this is what happens when you let the government decide whose life is worth saving and whose is disposable.
The leaders of the Democratic Party talk a LOT about “Diversity and Inclusion,” but their tolerance of diversity is literally skin-deep, and if you diverge in any way from their political dogma, you are not included. Just ask Republican Rep. Mayra Flores, whose recent victory in a heavily Hispanic Texas border district caused a political earthquake and made her one of the most celebrated and inspiring figures in the rising Hispanic Republican wave.
Flores, the first Mexican-born woman ever to serve in Congress, applied to join the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, and was rejected.
She said she thought it would be a “constructive way to build bridges and work in a bipartisan manner on behalf of our constituents. I was wrong. This denial once again proves a bias towards conservative Latinas that don’t fit their narrative or ideology.” How ironic that Hispanic Democrat politicians aren’t interested in building bridges, only in building walls.
Of course, she shouldn’t be surprised at the attitude that if you don’t vote Democrat, you ain’t really black or Hispanic, since it was notoriously expressed by Joe Biden in his outdoor voice. Black Republican Rep. Byron Donalds was also recently barred from joining the Congressional Black Caucus, even though neither of these groups officially requires any particular party affiliation to join. It’s just that once Democrats take over something, real diversity dies. Witness how they’re now accusing blacks and Hispanics who reject their insane political ideas of somehow being “white supremacists.” Well, that would certainly be self-defeating of them.
Prof. Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit had a good suggestion: Once the Republicans take over Congress, either accurately rename these groups (“The Hispanic Democrats Caucus”) or abolish them for discrimination and bigotry.
A Pro-life Democrat!
Someone alert the EPA! I’ve spotted an example of a species thought to be nearly extinct: the pro-life Democrat! Louisiana State Sen. Katrina Jackson was on the Dr. Phil show, and she had some eloquent comments after someone in the audience compared any legal restrictions on abortion to barring someone from receiving medical treatment for lung cancer because “abortion is health care.”
If you can imagine someone who would compare a baby to lung cancer, then you can understand the sickness of the soul in today’s radical pro-abortion movement. That’s why they’re constantly having to invent fuzzy euphemisms for abortion (apparently, “choice” is out and “health care” is in.) If they told everyone what they’re really talking about, anyone with a heart would be absolutely horrified.
The Washington Free Beacon spoke to voters in uber-liberal Oregon and found many lifelong Democrats who say they’ve had enough. One woman who recently dropped her party affiliation after 40 years said, "I don’t like the Democratic approach to anything that’s happening.” That includes tossing government money to everybody instead of only those who really need help.
They complain that their Democrat office holders have abandoned the general public to kowtow to radicals and made living there unaffordable. And with their slashing of police budgets and coddling of criminals, people are scared even to drive through Portland. A recent survey found that 60% of Oregon residents want the police to crack down on offenses like public urination and homeless camps. And 52% trust the Republicans to deal with crime more than the Democrats.
I know, experience should have made that 100%. But this is Oregon, so even 52% is a miracle.
Elon Musk and Twitter
Elon Musk is expected to take ownership of Twitter by Friday, and he rubbed that fact in for the leftist employees who are in hysterics over having to allow users to exercise free speech. Musk posted a video of himself entering Twitter headquarters for the first time, carrying a kitchen sink, with the caption, “Let that sink in.”
Apparently, the Twitter staff's open letter demanding that he let them keep their jobs and benefits and respect their radical politics has not persuaded him to drop his plans to fire 75% of them. Normally, I hate to see anyone lose their jobs, but one could argue that what they do all day hardly qualifies as a “job.”
Despite some ridiculously large six-figure salaries, it’s a mystery what actual “work” most of them do, other than banning anyone who posts a conservative thought or a biological fact. If they were hoping to drum up sympathy from other American workers, this video that went viral isn’t helping. It was posted by a Twitter employee to show what a day in her life at the Twitter offices is like.
Aside from a couple of meetings, it looks like she spends her day enjoying an incredibly expensive day spa, complete with frappuccino bar, gourmet lunch room, yoga studio, espresso machine, meditation room, break room (break from what?!) with foosball table, rooftop sun deck with lounge chairs, and red wine on tap.
As one commenter noted, it’s no wonder these people act like they’re still college students. This is just like being in one of today’s spoil-the-students-rotten universities. After watching this, anyone who wondered how Musk can run Twitter if he fires 75% of the employees might wonder instead why he’s not firing 90% of them.
