Eating their own…

leave a comment »

You wouldn’t think a lefty Jewish bookstore owner in San Francisco’s Mission District  could do anything to incur the wrath of the crazies out there.  But you would  be wrong,  because Manny Yekutiel,  who calls his store a  “civic social gathering space,” and has hosted a number of lefties, supports Israel.   That’s right,  a Jew supporting Israel is unacceptable to the rabid bats on the Left and must be driven out of town.

Manny hosted Nancy Pelosi –  not a word of defence from her.   There probably won’t be any from San Francisco Mayor London Breed or  activists with Black Lives Matter.   Are they afraid of upsetting the communist chief protestor?

Women’s crawl…

leave a comment »

I am delighted  that another  “Women’s March” has been cancelled.  I am even happier to see the internal squabbling being brought to light and the leaders being roasted.    Exactly how stupid one must be to think that a woman who glorifies a religion which treats women as objects is actually promoting anything healthy for females?  Judging by the pix of assorted women in their little pussy hats  there are plenty of social activists who are  dumb enough to make it work.   There is absolutely nothing empowering for women in the rallies, the speeches or the marches.

Our nation’s oldest living  veteran has  died.  I would like to have been able to sit and listen to this man for a while.  He served his nation and lived a life of honor.

World hijab day…

leave a comment »

If you are a progressive,  you apparently see no hypocrisy in urging women across the world to wear  the headscarf  to show solidarity with Muslim women.  Let’s see, you wish to promote a garment which is emblematic of a religion which treats women as chattel while claiming you support women?

Progressive women are deeply disturbed individuals.   Small wonder I have never seen any of them look happy.  Wear one if you wish,  thereby advertising that you have no value,  may be mistreated by any man and government at will, but I will not be celebrating the hijab at any point.

Rand Paul trolls D.C.

Sen Rand Paul has  trolled everyone  in D.C.  I doubt all of his targets on Twitter found it as amusing as I did.

A most proper wish…

leave a comment »

I stole this from Debby Witt at The Corner,  as I rank it as one of the finest counterpoints to the insane politically correctness we suffer from today:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter-solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2019, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, or sexual preference of the wishee.

Santa tracker…

…will  be running  despite the partial government shutdown.   The military budget was passed earlier this fall, and the NORAD elves who plot Santa’s course are volunteers,  so you’ve one less thing to worry about this Christmas Eve!

Not so sweet…

Hershey’s Kisses are  missing their  tips.  There is no real explanation thus far,  but you’d think the company would have noticed this defect before consumers started complaining.

Remember him?

leave a comment »

I speak of David Hogg, the  insufferable brat  who decided surviving the Parkland school shooting made him an expert on everything.  He will be going to Harvard this fall, although no one has said how his way will be paid, since Master Hogg said he had to attend a school which was free because,  “Wherever I go,  I want to go for free,  because I don’t want to put that over my parents or myself.”   How noble of him.  If I were his parent, I’d recall the nasty things he said about me and would not pay a penny for his further education.

In keeping with Harvard’s tradition of  welcoming  traitors (Chelsea Manning) and granting law degrees to thoroughly dishonest politicians (Barack and Michelle Obama, but others as well) it has offered Hogg a spot this fall, no doubt at the urging of various progressive alumni, who will also pull strings to see that dear David gets a sufficient chunk of Harvard’s nearly $40 million endowment.  He will learn little beyond perfecting his skills as a paid liar and self-righteous jerk,  but one hopes we will be spared him for a year of two.  He doesn’t appear to realize that the Left used him while he was hot, and has essentially dumped him.
