Masks, flags & words

Yes, it’s that time again, time to focus on leftist lunacy. First, we stress the political aspect, with Bill Maher, of the Kung Flu, and then there’s that New York Times editorial writer who is “disturbed” by seeing American flags. She is young, female and black,* so you know she was a diversity hire, i.e. affirmative action. I’m unfamiliar with the other NYT editorial writers, but you can count on their being cut from similar cloth.

If you get your “news” from the NYT or The Washington Post and their ilk, you are misinformed to a shocking degree. You need help.

Regular reading of The Unseen Moon is a good start. We’re here to assist.


A word about words

There’s lots of name-calling going on in these troubled times, and much of it is outdated. Indeed, many words now are misused, often intentionally for political purposes. The most obvious is that almost everyone mistakenly refers to leftists as “liberals” and “progressives,” which would be laughable aside from the dreadful effects of it. Leftists are masters of word twists. Conservatives are perilously lousy at it.

Leftists call conservatives “Nazis” and “fascists,” which we aren’t. But when conservatives refer to modern leftists as “Marxists,” there is little correct about that either. Did Marx opine on misgendering, sex-change surgeries, non-binary pronouns, biological men in women’s sports? Was Marx “offended” at this, that and the other? Was there a Marx Cancel Culture? Would Marx have tried to get someone fired for having a different opinion?

Did Marx self-loathe because he was white? (Watch the appalling video below.)

Would Marx have been on board with gay marriage? Did Marx oppose traditional marriage? The answer to all those questions is no. About the only thing Marxist about today’s left is big government and obligated income equality. The other stuff? Nah.

Modern leftists are much more than Marxists. They are far worse.

And Republicans are the liberals now.


*The most notable of those three characteristics is her youth. Editorial writers should possess wisdom and knowledge, something young people rarely have. Traditionally, editorial boards consist of older people with experience in the journalism trenches. They are not indoctrinated, diversity hires right out of Rutgers or NYU.


Off the proverbial charts

I occasionally skim the websites of The New York Times and The Washington Post out of curiosity and to gauge the high levels of nincompoopery you encounter there.

At the very top of The Post‘s page today we are told “Domestic terror incidents surge, led by white supremacists and far right.” This conclusion, we’re informed, comes from “an analysis” done by — wait for it — The Washington Post itself! This is arrant nonsense, and one wonders if The Post knows of the ongoing Antifa riots? Over the weekend, for instance, Antifa torched a Portland federal building with immigration agents trapped inside.

There was zero mention of that by either The Post or The Times. Not a peep.

Let’s turn now to what inspired me to write what I am now writing. It may be the most hilariously outrageous leftist delusional nonsense of the year. Right there on The New York Times website, giving new meaning to the word chutzpah, is a piece headlined: Can Biden Be Our FDR? I swear you cannot make this stuff up.

Welcome to the right side

Want to have a good time? Watch WalkAway videos on YouTube. Staunch members of the Democrat Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democrat Party, will tell you it’s a fake movement of Russian bots, or something like that, but it’s quite real, formed by Brandon Straka, a gay, New York City hairstylist, two years ago.

Thousands of people are abandoning the Democrat Socialist Party and moving to the GOP. There is no corresponding movement of people going in the other direction. Think of it this way: Cubans paddle toward Key West, but no one paddles toward Havana.

What’s perhaps most interesting about the WalkAway Movement is its diversity. Blacks, Anglos, Latinos, Christians, non-believers, men, women, straights, gays, transsexuals, you name it, which puts the lie to what the Democrat Socialist Party would have you believe, that the GOP is just racist, straight, white rednecks. We are the real rainbow.

The video above is a good example. Meet Ricky Rebel from Hollywood.

If you’ve always voted Democrat, as I did till 2007, know that you can join the multitude that’s quitting the Democrat Socialists, and you can vote in your best interests. Don’t be a sheep. Don’t listen to CNN, NPR or read The New York Times or The Washington Post if you want accurate news.

Hop on the raft to our Key West. You’ll find free speech, a sense of humor, mojitos, black bean soup and empanadas waiting on the dock, nice and warm.

How Goebbels did it

Trump signs executive order Tuesday to improve policing standards.

NO, NOT TRUMP, silly. He’s not Goebbels. He’s the good guy.

The Blond Bomber took steps this week to improve the cops. He signed an excellent executive order, and here are its four main items:

  1. Certification: The Justice Department will now allocate certain funding only to law enforcement agencies that meet high standards for use-of-force and de-escalation, as credentialed by reputable independent bodies. As part of this new credentialing, chokeholds will be banned except if an officer’s life is at risk.
  2. Information sharing: The Attorney General will create a database for federal, state, and local law enforcement to track terminations, criminal convictions, and civil judgments against law enforcement officers for excessive use-of-force.
  3. Mental health: To protect both officers and our most vulnerable populations, the Administration will prioritize training for police and social workers who respond to incidents involving the mentally ill, addicted, and homeless.
  4. Legislative action: The Administration will develop and propose new legislation to Congress to build on these policies and boost community engagement.

I got this straight-forward information from the White House newsletter, which I have often recommended for honest news about the Trump Administration. For dishonest information, look to the mainstream media. Here is how the NYT/DNC and the WP/DNC reported the positive news:

First, the Washington Post piece, an exercise in sneaky journalism. The headline says:

Trump signs order on policing, but Democrats and activists say it falls short of what is needed.

You see what they did there? Were it a story about Republican dogs discovering a cure for cancer, the WP/DNC headline would say:

Dogs announce discovery, but cats say it’s no big deal.

Let’s turn to how The New York Times reported the positive news. It was a little headline halfway down their website, sneakily hidden. Clicking on the headline did not take you to the executive order, which it should. No, it took you to a list of “protest” stories, and when you scrolled down far enough, near the bottom, there was the item at last.

These are two classic examples of the fake news/slanted news you get from the corrupt Gray Old Ladies of Journalism these days. The Goebbels Playbook. It is political propaganda. Get honest reporting elsewhere. I am available for recommendations.

I imagine The Washington Post and The New York Times still provide great coverage in many areas, i.e. food, travel, high society, etc., but regarding politics, culture and related issues, they are now corrupt and wandering in the PC wilderness.

In closing, I leave you with a little humor. Chuckles are good.

(Note: When the Democrats and “activists,” who are one and the same, say Trump’s actions don’t go far enough, they mean he did not address “systemic racism,” a leftist catch phrase that refers to something that doesn’t exist. There is no systemic racism in the United States. There is no “White Privilege” either.)
