Grey’s diversity

Every afternoon after lunch, we sit in the recliners for a little relax while watching Grey’s Anatomy, a TV series that apparently will never end, on Netflix. It’s in its 16th or 17th season with more to come. For contrast, Friends lasted 10 years, and Seinfeld ran for nine.

It has been accurately noted that neither Friends nor Seinfeld could be produced today due to political correctness and the Democrat/Socialist Party’s Cancel Culture and proclivity for actual violence. So what about Grey’s Anatomy which debuted in the fairly sane year of 2005? It’s astounding what it’s morphed into.

Diversity was not such an obsession in 2005 although the series began with some black characters and an Asian, which was totally realistic. Here at the Hacienda, we’ve just started the 16th season and, although the story lines are quite interesting, the characters and relationships are laughably unbelievable.

It’s well known that Showbiz hysterically promotes interracial couples as the norm and that gays are about 50 percent of the population. Everyone is accustomed to that while we simultaneously roll our eyeballs. But Grey’s Anatomy takes it to stratospheric levels.

About 90 percent of relationships, primarily the patients in Gray+Sloan Memorial, are multiracial, and some are multiracial and simultaneously gay or lesbian. Recently, a black woman with no husband in sight gave birth to a white baby.

Yes, it does get that silly.

The scriptwriters simultaneously and none-too-subtly toss anti-GOP slurs into the show. And there is frequent genuflecting to climate change, gun control, the usual suspects.

No matter. It’s fun to watch, and we’ll see it through, assuming it will ever end. And one must give credit to Ellen Pompeo, the show’s main star, for actually walking the walk. Her real-life husband is black and, of course, her three children are biracial.

Power to ’em, but it’s hardly the norm her show promotes.

While we are relentlessly told these days that multiculturalism and diversity are how things should be in a just world, the fact of the matter is quite the contrary as Simon Webb, one of The Moon’s contributing editors, demonstrated last month right here.

Democrat Party at work

If you get your information from places like the NYT and CNN,* you likely are ignorant of many things. I am here to help.

The Biden Administration — I don’t just say Biden because he’s only a prop — has nominated a gal named Saule Omarova to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, whatever the Devil that is.

What’s noteworthy here is that she would be nominated at all. She favors eliminating all private bank accounts and deposits. This came out last March when she spoke at a conference entitled “Law and Political Economy: Democracy Beyond Neoliberalism.”

Neoliberalism is a fancy synonym for capitalism and, interestingly, is a very popular term in Mexico. Leftists use it willy-nilly to badmouth opponents. Our doofus president often refers to political opponents as neoliberals. It’s important to keep in mind that it means capitalists. If you oppose capitalism, we know what you are.

Make the economy equitable.

— Saule Omarova

Omarova says her plan would — wait for it — “make the economy more equitable** for everyone.” She wants to eliminate all banks and transfer all deposits to the Federal Reserve, i.e. the government.

Yes, the Biden Administration wants to give this woman an important post. The nomination is, sensibly, facing opposition. Let us hope that neoliberal opposition prevails.

Gestapo at work

But let us move on to something else, today’s FBI which recently conducted a pre-dawn raid with 10 agents, spotlights and a battering ram on the home of James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas.

His “crime” had something to do with a diary of Sleepy Joe’s daughter that O’Keefe had legally obtained and long since turned over to law enforcement. So the raid was not about that at all. It was about intimidation.

You can read more about it here.

It resembled the 2019 raid at the home of Roger Stone. Pre-dawn, 29 agents, 17 vehicles, guns drawn and a battering ram at the ready. Stone’s alleged crime? Mass murder? Terrorism?

No. It was lying to the FBI.

But again, the sole reason for that raid was intimidation. Terrorism from the Deep State. I always hesitate to use words like Nazi, racist, Gestapo because those are the common epithets of the Left. But Gestapo really seems to fit here. Gestapo tactics.

Stone, 66 years old with white hair, was hauled off in cuffs. That’s an FBI emblem above. It says Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.

It’s a fine time to live in Mexico.

What’s up with Democrats?

I was a Democrat above the Rio Bravo all of my life, and I continued with that mindset till the 2008 presidential election.

One of the numerous things that caused me to switch sides was the inaugural in January 2009. A news camera was behind the stage just before Obama stepped out to take the oath of office. He had the look of a deer caught in the headlights. It really stuck with me. He no longer has that attitude. Quite the contrary. He’s full of himself.

It’s incredible that so many otherwise intelligent people continue to vote for Democrats. For decades now, states and cities run by Democrats are messes. High crime, high taxes, and bad ideas run rampant. Republicans create much nicer places.

As this six-minute video points out, people and businesses are fleeing blue states and moving to red states. It is never the reverse, just as Cubans raft from their island to Key West, not in the other direction. Incidentally, it’s not uncommon to encounter Democrats who think Cuba is a fine and dandy place.

I’ve been there. It’s not.

Even famous liberal — the term actually applies to him, mostly — Bill Maher states the obvious. Perhaps some Democrat who reads The Moon — and who has not been blocked for rudeness — can explain why he or she sticks with that party. It’s a legitimate mystery to me.

Thanks in advance. I know you are out there.

Lesbians with penises

Decorum.

Since The Moon‘s debut over a decade ago and even with its six-year predecessor, The Zapata Tales, there has existed a principal theme, and that has been Decorum on an almost Victorian-era level.

We don’t cuss here, and we do not brawl with others. There is quite enough of that in other corners of cyberspace. Let them be nasty. Here we are always polite, clean and presentable.

At least for today, however, we are putting that aside. Look at the headline. Good grief! But with the ongoing collapse of the Caucasian quarters of Western Civilization, exceptions must be made if we’re to address the disaster honestly, head-on.

And who can do that better than The Moon‘s new contributing editor Simon Webb? He is British, of course, and it is in Britain where leftist lunacy soars above similar lunacy in other nations.

When I was in the news game, in another lifetime, those of us in the newsroom often commented among ourselves that the nuttiest news items almost invariably came from the wacky Brits.

Let us attempt to encapsulate modern leftist lunacy’s many aspects. It embraces old-style Marxism and communism as in redistribution of income, “free” stuff from government, high taxes and governmental overreach/meddling.

Stirred into that is political correctness, the modern sex craziness, the gender crackpottery, the endless “offense” that leftists feel, the inability to accept contrary opinions.

And the ensuing censorship and actual violence.

Plus, there is the twisting of word definitions. Boris Johnson, the British prime minister, belongs to the Conservative Party though there is nothing conservative about 10 Downing Street these days. It is Stalin-esque. Leftists refer to themselves, as does almost everyone, as liberals and progressives when they are precisely the contrary.

Goebbels is nodding his head.

But today we are focusing on gender crackpottery. Just when you thought it could not get sillier, we have the phenomenon, at least in Great Britain, of — drumroll here — lesbians with penises.

I’ll leave it to Simon Webb to fill you in on the details.
