Progressive utopia update: Switching to renewable energy will end racism and ‘economic injustice, or something

Same old socialist song and dance

Anybody who actually chooses to pay attention knows that all the “climate change” doom and gloom talk is all a giant wealth grab (even the French are starting to figure it out). And where there’s a wealth grab, you’ll find social justice warriors clinging to the movement like lampreys on a shark. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t even been sworn into Congress yet and she’s already figured that out:

How switching to indeterminate energy sources that would in the process cause the price of the only available existing energy sources to skyrocket would “help” the poor is anybody’s guess.

Here’s another national treasure who appeared with Bernie Sanders saying to act on “climate change” is to take action in favor of “gender equality”:

Here’s the capper: Leaders of the annual “fleece the masses” meeting disguised as a “Climate Conference” said this is what’s going to be required to save humanity:

In a rare intervention, presidents of previous UN climate summits issued a joint statement as the talks got under way, calling on states to take “decisive action… to tackle these urgent threats”.

“The impacts of climate change are increasingly hard to ignore,” said the statement, a copy of which was obtained by AFP. “We require deep transformations of our economies and societies.”

All this alarmism is a giant “transfer the wealth” cult, and anybody who doesn’t acknowledge that is an easy mark or in on the sham.

Harvard, Yale scientists have a plan to do something about that pesky sun warming the earth

When real life collides with The Simpsons

The “scientific” left in this country are determined to do something about a problem they say threatens the whole of humanity, even if they have to accidentally kill everybody in the process:

That’s just how I like my “settled science” to sound — with alleged solutions that start with “it sounds crazy, but…”

From CNN:

Scientists are proposing an ingenious but as-yet-unproven way to tackle climate change: spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere.

The research by scientists at Harvard and Yale universities, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, proposes using a technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection, which they say could cut the rate of global warming in half.
The technique would involve spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth’s lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. The scientists propose delivering the sulfates with specially designed high-altitude aircraft, balloons or large naval-style guns.

Nothing better than an “as-yet unproven way to tackle” a problem that is as-yet unproven. But at least they’re admitting that it’s the sun that is in fact warming the world.

PC v1.0 gets devoured by PC v2.0 as college cancels Vagina Monologues because ‘not all women have vaginas’ or something

Satire dies yet again

We’ve now reached the point in time that future anthropologists will probably dub the “WTF Epoch” as even political correctness is now not politically correct enough. Case in point:

Leaders at a college in Michigan decided to cancel its production of “The Vagina Monologues” because it’s discriminatory, given “not all women have vaginas.”

The women’s resource center at Eastern Michigan University put the kibosh on the famous production since it caters only to women who have the physical anatomy that accompanies the female sex, according to The Ann Arbor News.

The decision came after the resource center conducted a survey, asking respondents about “The Vagina Monologues.” Those opposed to the drama said they were concerned about the fact that the production excludes some women, namely those who don’t have vaginas.

Like a dying star, political correctness expanded and became super bright and is now actually collapsing into itself. Someday it’s possible that we’ll learn the extinction of PC was caused by PC itself.

Good luck with that! On Kavanaugh’s first day, lefties continue same protest that failed to stop his confirmation

The Handmaid’s Fail

Brett Kavanaugh’s first day at the Supreme Court saw a bunch of women who are completely free to protest and make fools of themselves all they want pretending to be horribly oppressed by a new Supreme Court justice they don’t like who was nominated by a president they hate:

Yep, it’s the same shtick that didn’t stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation in the first place, but maybe it’ll work this time! This should henceforth be referred to as The Handmaid’s Fail.

That sad cosplay spectacle follows days of lefties embarrassing themselves, their parents and all their ancestors:

Who’s got a weird hat, loud voice, lots of free time and hates Trump & Kavanaugh? THIS guy:

“This is what democracy looks like!”

The U.S. is a Republic, not a democracy, but for the sake of argument, do they know what else democracy looks like?

To sum up the week liberals had…

And then some.

Classy! Dem senator commemorates 9/11 by comparing it to the left’s favorite 2016 election loss narrative

Douchebag of the week

Did you know that nearly 3,000 people died as a result of the 2016 election season? Shameless Dem Sen. Angus King drew that comparison on Tuesday during comments that amazingly didn’t culminate in a bolt of lightning from on high striking him down for the nauseating level of sheer gall:

Sen. Angus King on Tuesday compared Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people.

Maine state Sen. Eric Brakey, the Republican nominee seeking Mr. King’s seat, posted an edited video Tuesday of the independent giving a speech commemorating Sept. 11 at a Lewiston fire station.

“They used airplanes into towers,” Mr. King said of the 9/11 hijackers. “Now people can use the click of a computer key in St. Petersburg, Russia, to attack.

“It’s an attack that continues and it’s the same kind of attack today that occurred in 2001,” he added.

As Alec Baldwin’s character Blake said in Glengarry Glen Ross, “Never. Stop. Closing!”

Douchebag of the week.

Least self-aware comment of the week goes to this Colin Kaepernick supporter and former president of Iran

He’s GOT to be kidding

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was the President of Iran between 2005 and 2013, and he’s apparently a big supporter of Nike’s superhero and godfather of the “take a knee” (and “pig cop” socks) movement Colin Kaepernick:

Hahahaha! Maybe Ahmadinejad can fill us in about how the government deals with protesters in his home country.

But hey, if Mahmoud thinks it’s so brave and Kaepernick thinks the U.S. is so unjust, maybe the former Niners QB should go to Tehran and take a knee when the Iranian anthem is playing to see how that works out for him.

Who’s up for some NARAL ‘Rocky Roe v. Wade’ ice cream?

There are four flavors for sale, and unfortunately one of them isn’t “Totally Deminted”:

I’m half surprised they didn’t have a flavor with the word crunchy or chunky in the title, because they’re that self-unaware.

They were going to guarantee that the ice cream would be at least as cold as their hearts before discovering their freezers couldn’t push the temp down that far.

Couple who believed evil was a ‘make believe concept’ bicycled near ISIS territory — Guess what happened next

Via the Daily Wire, this is submitted without comment because it isn’t necessary, except to say there’s a lesson here that some progressives refuse to accept:

A young American couple who took a year-long bike trip around the world, believing that evil was a make-believe concept, took a fatal route in Tajikistan near the Afghan border, where alleged ISIS terrorists stabbed them to death.

Jay Austin and Lauren Geoghegan, 29, quit their jobs last year in order to make their trip. Austin was a vegan who worked for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; Geoghegan, a vegetarian who worked in the Georgetown University admissions office.

While in Morocco, Austin wrote:

You watch the news and you read the papers and you’re led to believe that the world is a big, scary place. People, the narrative goes, are not to be trusted. People are bad. People are evil. People are axe murderers and monsters and worse.

I don’t buy it. Evil is a make-believe concept we’ve invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans holding values and beliefs and perspectives different than our own—it’s easier to dismiss an opinion as abhorrent than strive to understand it. Badness exists, sure, but even that’s quite rare. By and large, humans are kind. Self-interested sometimes, myopic sometimes, but kind. Generous and wonderful and kind. No greater revelation has come from our journey than this.

Hot new idea to achieve progressive healthcare utopia: Forcing doctors to take huge pay cuts

Ever notice lefty progressives/socialists never recommend cutting their own salaries to “help” others with their needs?

You know, listening to progressives banter about talking about their visions for socialist utopia reminds me of when I was a kid. There were always some 8-year-olds dreaming out loud: “Hey, if everything was free then nobody would really have to work for anything and we’d all be taken care of.” Progressives are the ones who never really outgrew that stage.

So anyway, how can the Left’s plan of “Medicare for all” work in the U.S.? A couple of writers for the progressive pipe dream manufacturing plant called Vox are on it:

I for one look forward to being operated on by a doctor recently disgruntled by a huge salary cut while being assisted by his staff who were hit by even steeper pay cuts while all of them are frustrated by a 9-month backlog of pissed patients on their waiting list. And I’m sure people will be lining up around the block to study their asses off for years in medical school and then work 18 hour days in residency to end up earning about as much money as a New York City bus driver.

Ever notice lefty progressives/socialists never recommend cutting their own salaries to “help” others with their needs?

Of course: Pro-abortion progressives condemn Tsarnaev death sentence

The “progressive” idea of “right to life” is indeed selective and twisted.

Example #1:

Example #2:

Something to behold, isn’t it? The only people in Progressive-Land who don’t deserve protections from being deprived of life are the people we know are innocent of any crimes 100 percent of the time.

Great comment on a post over at Michelle’s:

If you want to have some fun…

Run your #BlackLivesMatter poster down by your local abortion clinic.

Hopefully that catches on.
