    Are Leftists stupid, ideologically blind, or just preying on the stupidity/ignorance of young people? It's probably some combination of all three, I suppose. There are plenty of really smart Leftists who are ignorant; most Leftists think of people with whom they disagree as evil or stupid, and ideological blindness is a characteristic that describes most Leftists. Then, of course, there are just plain evil people who sell nonsense to these other groups whom they consider useful idiots, in the way Stalin used Westerners who wanted to believe in communism. NEW: Keffiyeh-donning gay activists in Seattle have declared a “homosexual intifada.”It...

    A new deck of playing cards designed by peace activists that has gone viral and sold out online has branded US politicians as “war criminals” over their support for Israel’s offensive in Gaza — and has taken aim exclusively at Democrats. In addition to President Joe Biden and his cabinet, the deck — reminiscent of the “Most Wanted” cards issued by the US military as it hunted down Iraqi officials following the toppling of Saddam Hussein — features Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders. Clinton, the former Democratic Party nominee for president, is the Three of Hearts while her...

    French farmers are using their tractors to set up road blockades and slow traffic across France to seek better remuneration for their produce, less red tape and protection against cheap importsTwo climate activists hurled soup Sunday at the glass protecting the Mona Lisa at the Louvre Museum in Paris and shouted slogans advocating for a sustainable food system. This came amid protests by French farmers against several issues, including low wages. In a video posted on social media, two women with the words “FOOD RIPOSTE” written on their t-shirts could be seen passing under a security barrier to get closer...

    Donald Trump told young protesters who infiltrated his campaign stop in Indianola, Iowa on Sunday to 'go home to mommy' and to 'grow up' after experiencing his first outburst at a rally in years. A group of environmental protesters interrupted Trump's rally in Indianola, Iowa on Sunday, holding up banners accusing the former president of being a 'climate criminal.' The demonstrators were littered throughout the crowd, and were escorted out of a student union building where Trump was holding a final rally before Iowa's caucuses on Monday. Not only those backing Trump were inspired to come out in the -18-degree...
  • Climate activists declare war on ‘gas guzzler’ cars... by vandalising an electric Tesla

    Telegraph via Yahoo ^ | January 7, 2024 | India McTaggart
    Environmental activists who have declared war on “gas guzzler” cars have vandalised an electric-powered vehicle. The controversial group, who call themselves the Tyre Extinguishers, targeted a Tesla car in Clifton, Bristol. The owner was out walking his dog while the group deflated his tyres and left their signature leaflet on the windscreen, which states: “Your gas guzzler kills.” It does not mark the first time the activists have seemingly erroneously deflated the tyres of electric vehicles, with a similar incident on a Tesla in the London area of Notting Hill last year.

    Activists in Dallas, Texas, and other Lone Star State shelters are warning that they are over capacity and have no room for more illegals, and their contacts northward are saying the same thing. Despite the near complete depletion of resources to care for illegals, Biden’s wide open border crisis remains a threat, and thousands more are pouring across the border every day, sometimes even by the hour.

    Activists are calling for even more refugees and migrants to be brought to Minnesota to settle there, even as millions of illegal aliens continue to pour across the border filling the welfare rolls. More than 1,500 refugees were brought to the Gopher State in 2023, triple the number sent to the state by federal officials in 2022. And that is up from the 258 sent in 2021, the Star Tribune reported. The number of refugees was lower during the President Donald Trump era, the paper says, but this year, 443 came from Somalia, while other groups came from the Congo...

    Pro-Palestinian activists had early Christmas Day messages for Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and national security adviser Jake Sullivan on Monday, as groups protested outside the pair’s homes in an attempt to wake them early. The activists urged the Biden administration to stop support for Israel and push for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war, citing increasing civilian casualties and a humanitarian crisis. The group carried signs with phrases like “stop the genocide” and calls to stop all military support for Israel, as well as cutouts of President Biden stained red with mock blood, according to footage posted on social media.
  • How the Boston Tea Party’s ‘destruction of the tea’ changed American history (250 years ago, today)

    On the evening of Dec. 16, 1773, a crowd of armed men, some allegedly wearing costumes meant to disguise them as Native American warriors, boarded three ships docked at Griffin’s Wharf in Boston. In the vessels’ holds were 340 chests containing 92,000 pounds of tea, the most popular drink in America. With support from the patriot group known as the Sons of Liberty, the intruders methodically searched the ships and dumped their tea into Boston Harbor. According to the British East India Company, whose proprietors owned the destroyed cargo, losses totaled more than a million dollars in today’s currency. The...

    Climate activists angered opera fans at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, by standing up and screaming during an opening night performance of Tannhäuser, Thursday. Radical climate group Extinction Rebellion, NYC, took credit for the protest on social media, and shared videos of the disruptions. Halfway through the second act of the performance, several protesters stood up and demanded an end to fossil fuels. One man scolded the audience to "wake up" to the "climate emergency," before unfolding a black banner that said, "No opera on a dead planet." "Wake up! The stream is polluted! The stream is tainted!...

    Activists are working to put abortion on the ballot in Arkansas, adding to a growing list of states that may be voting on the issue in 2024. A non-profit called For AR People announced the creation of a new group on Monday called Arkansans for Limited Government, a ballot question committee that will support the “Arkansas Reproductive Healthcare Amendment.”

    FIRST ON FOX: A fledgling dark money climate group poured millions of dollars last year into disruptive activist protests that blocked busy highways and destroyed famous artwork in cities across the world, according to tax filings obtained by Fox News Digital. The Beverly Hills, California-based, Climate Emergency Fund (CEF) - which has been funded in large part by Hollywood actors and producers since it was founded in 2019 - raised $6.1 million in 2022, a 165% increase from the $2.3 million it raised in 2021, the tax filings showed. The sharp increase in funding led to CEF sending $5 million...

    More than 50 progressive activists marched across Capitol Hill on Wednesday to protest the war in Ukraine and call on lawmakers to push the Biden administration to negotiate an end to the war. At least 11 of the protesters were arrested outside the office of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) after congressional aides demanded they leave a sit-in inside the senator’s office. Several senior citizens, including a handicapped elderly woman, were either handcuffed by officers or escorted out. The protest movement, organized by the nonprofit organization Code Pink and the Peace in Ukraine Coalition, entered 12 congressional offices, all progressive and...

    San Francisco Mayor London Breed has sensationally blasted homeless activists in the city, complaining they are keeping people on the streets and enabling them. She claimed advocates get in the way of city workers and discourage those most in need from going into shelters and getting help. “These activists are the same people who hand out tents to keep people on the street instead of working to bring them indoors, as we are trying to do,” Breed wrote on the online platform Medium. “And they are the same people instructing and encouraging people to refuse shelter — to remain on...

    Ohio voters on Tuesday will decide on a ballot measure to make it harder to amend the state constitution, a change conservatives say is needed to protect the state from a radical anti-gun, abortion and education agenda that could soon find its way to other states. It's an issue that has already prompted a massive early vote turnout – one that has some election offices straining to manage the load. "This is gubernatorial-level turnout," said Regine Johnson, deputy director of the board of elections in Stark County. As of Wednesday, more than 533,000 people had voted by mail or in...

    Either climate alarmists don’t actually believe the planet is doomed, or they aren’t as confident in that belief as they claim to be.A panel of scientists recently claimed that humans’ effect on the planet is so significant it should be memorialized through the creation of a new geological epoch that began sometime in the middle of the 20th century. As we speak, climate activists are preparing to do what any well-adjusted, functioning adult would do on the heels of such news: glue themselves to a building or throw tomato soup at great works of art.

    3:23 Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) has closed down state-run Internet links that provided pro-transgender activists with direct and private access to vulnerable teenagers. The shut-down programs, according to the Washington Post, included: Queer Kid Stuff, a resource for children and families that launched its video series in 2016 with a piece exploring the question, “What Does Gay Mean?” and Q Chat Space, which offers live, facilitated chats for LGBTQ+ teenagers. Neither site requires adult permission to use, which some conservatives say they find troubling but LGBTQ+ experts say is essential for youth who need support and are not comfortable...

    Campus Reform ^ | 7/2/23 | Haika Mrema
    Texas became the latest state to ban diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives in public schools earlier this month. Governor Greg Abbott signed Senate Bill 17 into law, prohibiting DEI offices in Texas public colleges and universities starting in 2024. The new law comes months after the University of Houston’s decision to ban DEI statements in faculty hiring. “The issue is not diversity – the issue is that equity is not equality, and DEI practices conflate the two, Governor Abbott’s spokesman Andrew Mahaleris told Campus Reform. “Some universities and woke professors have been using DEI to advance political agendas and...

    It’s easy for conservatives to think of the LGBT activist crowd as constantly crying wolf over pronouns and “deadnames,” but when self-described “queer” people try to describe who they are and what they do, pay attention. A prime example of this principle occurred just this week: participants in New York City’s annual Pride Parade chanted, “We’re coming for your children.”

    On the largest stage to date in the race to replace retiring California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the three top Democratic candidates dashed through their state party’s convention this weekend in downtown Los Angeles, courting delegates, meeting with potential backers and trying to build early support in the unpredictable contest. Rep. Katie Porter snapped selfies with fans as her campaign offered croissants, muffins and coffee. Rep. Adam B. Schiff delivered a combination of risqué humor and dad jokes during a nighttime stand-up performance. And Rep. Barbara Lee leaned heavily into her long history of supporting liberal causes, even when they were...
