Things that make you say HMMMMMMM

All the rich folks clamoring for all student debt to be erased make me ask two questions.

First, why don’t they start paying off that debt? They call taxpayers “greedy” if we do not want our money to pay off debt w did not make. Are these rich folks not greedy, by their own definition?

Secondly, why don’t they get together and make a better system? I mean surely they can do better than the colleges, overcharging for crap courses and majors. And, why don’t these start cutting back what all their faculty make? Why aren’t these CEO’s demand the colleges reform. 

Seems like these goody two shoes CEO types are suffering from Selective Outrage Syndrome

Palestinian Authority bans LGTBQ activities

And the media? Do not expect any outrage from them. And do not expect members of the Fraud Squad to bemoan the discrimination either

 PA bans LGBTQ activities in West Bank.

The Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.

The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month.

Not satisfied with banning them, the PA then promised to arrest any of the members they found.

The PA police will chase those behind the LGBTQ group and see to it that they are brought to trial once they are arrested, Zreikat warned. He further appealed to Palestinians to report to the police about any person connected to the group.

And again, Rashida Tlaib? AOC? Ayanna “Massa” Pressley? The Little Ball of Hate Ilhan Omar? Do not expect even a peep out of them.

Noose found at University of Michigan. Fake Moral Outrage outbreak follows

Good Freaking Grief. How do idiots like this stand being so foolish

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — University of Michigan police are investigating after a noose was found on an employee’s desk at a university hospital.

The university has “taken immediate action” to investigate the incident that occurred Thursday as an act of discrimination and criminal ethnic intimidation, said Dr. Marschall S. Runge, the dean of the University of Michigan Medical School.

“This act of hate violates all of the values that we hold dear and will not be tolerated,” Runge said in a statement, calling the noose a “symbol of hate and discrimination.”

And they will find the evil doer if they have to watch thousands of video clips, they will not rest until they find the root of this

“We have thousands of cameras all over the University of Michigan, and we are looking at all sources of information,” Young said.

But, what if there was no “hate crime”? What if some weenies just lost their lunch over nothing because they love pretending racism is everywhere? What if indeed!

Ann Arbor, Michigan — Following an extensive investigation, the University of Michigan’s Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS) has concluded that the rope resembling a noose found at University Hospital was not the result of a hate crime.

On June 20, 2019, DPSS received a report that a Michigan Medicine employee found a spool of rope with a knot in it resembling a noose sitting on a shared workspace in University Hospital.

Based on multiple witness interviews and other evidence, DPSS does not believe that the incident involving the rope was a hate crime. If relevant new information comes forward, the case will be reopened.

During the investigation, it was learned that a spool of rope utilized for medical procedures was being used by a person on a break to practice tying a “Uni Knot,” which is a type of knot used for fishing. When the spool was returned to the storage area, the knot was still in place and discovered the following day by an employee.

Good Freaking Grief!

Just a thought

Why does the media hyperventilate over Trump scolding The “Squad” while ignoring the rhetoric the Squad spews? Yes, we all know why the media suffers from Selective Outrage Syndrome

The Hypocritical Hypocrisy of the Cult of Climate Change

One of the most insightful bloggers out there is Animal, of Animal Magnetism. Read his latest, exposing the rank hypocrisy of the “carbon footprint” crowd

I can’t abide hypocrites.

And national treasure  Ann Althouse has found a doozy.  Excerpt:

This is one of my longtime issues — the hypocrisy of those who purport to care deeply about carbon footprints yet enthusiastically imprint their feet all over the world and encourage (and even pressure) others to do the same.

I like to see how the NYT deals with this subject — the NYT, with all its concern-mongering about climate change and all its travel articles and ads and its need to serve the emotions and vanities of its readers. What are we having today? A little shame, spiced with humorous self-deprecation, along with the usual self-esteem boosting about our progressivism and our love of the good life?

For this article, the author is by Andy Newman. Let’s read:

[T]hese are morally bewildering times. Something that seemed like pure escape and adventure has become double-edged, harmful, the epitome of selfish consumption. Going someplace far away, we now know, is the biggest single action a private citizen can take to worsen climate change. One seat on a flight from New York to Los Angeles effectively adds months worth of human-generated carbon emissions to the atmosphere. And yet we fly more and more….

What’s morally bewildering? If you believe what the consensus of climate scientists and the proponents of the Green New Deal are telling us, you should never travel. Everything else is morally wrong. If you are bewildered, you’re just bewildered about whether you — as opposed to those other people — want to center your life on morality.

But here’s the giggle line:

How does Newman bring this thing in for a landing? He’s still taking his family to Greece and Paris this summer. His reasoning is pathetically emotional: “We’re going because last year we canceled vacation to come home and watch our dog die. We’re going because the New York City public high school application process was an ordeal.” Why not rent a car and drive your spouse and teenager to a state park in upstate New York? You can hike and sleep in tents.

Mostly we’re going because of things we saw last time we were there. The tiny beach at the base of the towering cliff. The playground where the little children played past midnight while their parents and grandparents sat chatting. Chubby partridges pecking around the ruined temple of Poseidon.

So you’ve already gone, but you want to re-see what you’ve seen, because somehow the way they do it in Europe is more to your taste. I’m sure there’s a tiny beach with a towering cliff at one of those state parks I linked to.

So, the loudmouthed climate panic monger says, on one hand, that travelling is, well, basically evil. Funny how the left defines evil. Travelling? EVIL! Calling MS-13 gang members animals? EVILY EVIL! Killing babies as they are born? Not evil, in fact the left embraces such atrocities as “empowerment” 

This Newman – what an asshole.  He whines about the “carbon footprint” he produces, but then blithely announces he’s going to take his family to Europe anyway.  His reason is, effectively, because “fuck you, that’s why.”

I suppose it is OK, even saintly for the left to scream about how we are destroying the earth by travelling while travelling themselves. Maybe they believe their fake moral outrage causes them to be immune from ideological and intellectual consistency? Or, maybe Animal is right, maybe they are just assholes

Useless Nations hits bottom of the Pit of Idiocy, keeps drilling

Via Moonbattery

It’s a good thing that the voices for AI assistants like Alexa and Siri always seem to be female. If they were male, moonbats would shriek that it constituted sexism by implying that men have all the answers. Since the voices are female… moonbats shriek anyway.

It turns out the feminine voices are a patriarchal scheme:

The revelation about this digital plot for male dominance comes in a 146-page report from the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in cooperation with the German government and the EQUALS Skills Coalition, a partnership of governments, businesses and nonprofits. …

The report says that these voices send “a signal that women are obliging, docile, eager-to-please helpers, available at the touch of a button or with a blunt voice command like ‘hey’ or ‘OK.’”

Have I mentioned lately that it is no longer possible to parody the left?
