Everyone’s Fed Up With Leftists, Part One
Eco-radicals in Europe have been staging a series of obnoxious and childish protests, from dumping milk on grocery floors to throwing soup at an irreplaceable Van Gogh painting. One of their current favorite childish tactics is to glue their hands to the floor to make it harder to remove them. But Volkswagen in Germany showed the world the perfect way to deal with them.
Sixteen members of a radical green group called “Scientist Rebellion” (they wear lab coats and claim to be scientists, although their behavior doesn’t suggest they have very high IQs) staged a protest at the Autostadt pavilion next to the VW factory. Nine of them glued their hands to the floor and declared that they were “on hunger strike until our demands to decarbonize the German transport sector are met.”
They probably expected the VW bosses to call the police, who would unstick their hands and give them lots of publicity. Instead, the bosses just turned off the lights at the end of the day, locked the doors (if the people supporting them left, they couldn’t get back in), and left them there with no food or heat. The protesters also whined about having no way to use the bathroom, someone you’d think a “scientist” might consider before gluing himself to the floor. They must’ve studied biological science at a woke Ivy League school.
Their self-inflicted predicament inspired much laughter and celebration online, with one Twitter user congratulating them because with no heat or lights, “you have successfully decarbonized the hall that you are in.”
I’m not sure if they ever got unstuck, but if the glue solvent is petroleum-based, I’m sure they wouldn’t want to use it.
Everyone’s Fed Up With Leftists, Part Two
Former Vice President Mike Pence gave a speech at Georgetown University, and he was greeted by the expected leftist student mob hoping to shut it down, chanting idiotic slogans like “Hate has no home here” (ironically, their hatred of anyone holding an opposing view was the only hate on display”) and waving signs with equally idiotic leftist slogans, like “Reproductive rights are human rights” (they might run that by the humans in the womb that they want to be able to dismember up until the very moment of birth and possibly slightly beyond.)
But here’s another welcome sign that people are fed up with rule by leftist tantrum. After the mob walked out of Pence’s speech (with perfect timing, as he was saying that people in Washington now are "more intent on imposing their agenda or walking out on people that might have a different point of view"), their seats were easily filled with Pence supporters who were waiting outside because there hadn’t been enough room.
So let me just say that I fully support this latest form of protest of close-minded leftist totalitarians walking out on conservative speakers so that people who are actually there to learn something can get in and have a seat.
Why San Francisco is considered the ultimate liberal enclave
Rick Moran at PJ Media reminds us of why San Francisco is considered the ultimate liberal enclave.
It has everything you expect when the leftest-of-the-left run a city and impose their special combination of incompetence and illogic, like incredibly fancy digs for the wealthy elites, and rampant homelessness, unaffordable housing and outrageously bold criminals for the dwindling middle class to deal with. Gorgeous parks and buildings inherited from previous generations that actually knew how to build and run things, covered by trash, drug needles and human feces courtesy of this generation of politicians.
And of course, it may not have enough cops, but boy, does it have “art.” Like the half-million dollar campaign to create more beautiful trash cans for the homeless to forage through. And if these people had been in charge in 1906, they’d still be trying to rebuild from the great earthquake and fire, judging by the fact that the city has appropriated $1.7 million to build a public toilet.
Why so much? Well, first an architect has to design it, then submit it for public feedback. Then the Arts Commission’s Civic Design Review committee has to conduct a “multi-phase review” to evaluate the “design, scale and massing for accessibility, safety and aesthetic merit” (I’d say as long as the feces goes into a toilet at all, it’s an aesthetic improvement.) They have to ensure that the design is “appropriate to its context in the urban environment, and that structures of the highest design quality reflect their civic stature.” And if all that takes a while, people can just keep enhancing civic stature by relieving themselves on the sidewalks.
Here’s the real difference between living in a liberal enclave and a conservative enclave: Some bridges in Florida were recently destroyed by Hurricane Ian. Replacement bridges were constructed and open to traffic within three days. And nobody’s pooping on them.
Related: Could there be hope that the leftist stranglehold on big cities might finally be coming to an end? Even the New York Times seems to have noticed that life in these deep blue sewers has become so unbearable that voters are finally starting to revolt. Even in San Francisco, where they recently recalled their criminal-loving D.A. and threw out three America-hating school board members.
I’ll believe the voters have finally had enough abuse from their co-dependent relationship with leftist politicians when San Francisco elects its first Republican mayor since…let’s see…1964.
Elon Musk told investors that when he takes over Twitter, he plans to fire 75% of its staff. Normally, I hate to think of anyone losing their jobs, but in this case, I have to ask the obvious question: “Only 75%?”
Not definite: McCarthy as Speaker
It’s generally assumed that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy will be the next Speaker of the House. But if he doesn’t realize that Republicans are fed up with playing by the old rules of civility that the Democrats threw out the window, and that they’ve had enough of a two-tiered justice system and zero accountability for Democrats, then all bets are off.
I JUST WANTED TO SAY:
