Huck’s Criminal Mastermind
Today’s Huck’s Criminal Mastermind is the 23-year-old La Vergne, Tennessee, man who was arrested after police discovered he had two sealed indictments against him related to child rape. They might not have discovered that if they hadn’t needed to run a routine background check on him after he requested to go on a ride-along with police. I assume he did get to find out what it’s like to ride in a police car.
I’ve been wondering when the horrific move to indoctrinate and sexualize children under the guise of LGBTQ rights would finally cause gay people to revolt, and that time may be here, as Megan Fox of PJ Media reports.
Even as social media platforms yield to the demands of the tiny minority and ban the word “groomer,” we all know what’s going on no matter what you call it, and many gay people are fed up with being associated with it. One of them is Jaimee Michell, who started a group called “Gays Against Groomers” that’s growing quickly online.
The group says there are millions of rational gay Americans who “want nothing to do with this Alphabet religion and join the fight with parents and concerned people everywhere to protect children. We also aim to return sanity and reclaim the community we once called our own.” To the wokesters, they wrote, “Stop using our community to shield groomers and pedophiles. We never consented for you to bastardize our name with your sick ideology and behavior…Anyone with an iota of common sense knows this is extremely dangerous and should be illegal to do to minors. It’s time the vast majority stands up and stops playing along with this sick nightmare.”
It's certainly a welcome development, and along with the coming election (let us pray) may be a sign of the end of letting the stub tail wag the dog. There’s more at the link, including a video interview Megan did with Michell, who naturally is getting lots of online hate from all the right people, but I hope knows better than to care.
Proof they are lying
If I told you that Biden Administration officials are lying when they claim to be trying to bring down higwh gas prices to help struggling American families, you might think I’m just launching a partisan attack. So how about if I point you to some quotes that prove they’re lying and when their guard is down, they’ll come right out and gloat over the fact that you’re suffering pain from high gas prices, which has long been their stated goal to force you to stop driving gas-powered cars?
You Can’t Win With Wokeness
The White House is trying to promote the idea of President Biden being strong and vigorous by claiming that he’s continuing to work a busy eight-hour day even while quarantining with COVID. But now, he’s getting attacked from the left for claiming that he’s working while sick.https://redstate.com/
Missing the boat
Last week, I mentioned that eight New York Times columnists had written articles on the topic of things they’d been horribly wrong about (I know, they could fill the paper with those every day.) I mentioned a couple, like economics savant Paul Krugman missing the boat entirely on inflation, and Bret Stephens realizing how badly he’d slandered Trump voters. Since the Times is behind a paywall, I didn’t want to get too deep into this, but Western Journal has more on their well-deserved mea culpas, and you can read it for free:https://www.westernjournal.
Karol Markowicz at the New York Post has a good article on how the Democrats, especially President Biden, declare needless “emergencies,” like the “climate change emergency” or the abortion “women’s health emergency,” so they can grab power and impose their agenda without going through Congress, aka “the people’s elected representatives.” They seem to try it these days every time they fail to get what they want from Congress or the courts. Despite all their railing about Trump, this is the real danger to “our democracy.”
As she notes, trying to keep Americans panicked to increase your own power isn’t news. Indeed, it was described about a century ago in one of my favorite, oft-repeated quotes, from newspaper man H.L. Mencken:
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) from an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
I JUST WANTED TO SAY:
