The World Health Organization (“House Specialty: Dim Sum!”) reportedly wants to change the name of the monkeypox virus because somebody, somewhere decided it’s racist-sounding.  I wish the WHO success in their important work. In fact, in the spirit of healthy international health collaboration, I’d like to offer some alternative monikers for the virus:  “Italian Greyhound Virus” This has a…

I don’t know her reasoning, but Jezebel writer Kylie Cheung has determined to be the nasty, America-hating leftist from central casting. Maybe being a caricature is a good career move for a feminist writer. In an August 15 piece about a Netflix movie, Cheung apparently just can’t seem to control herself. The movie is a rom-com called Purple Hearts.  The movie is set during the Iraq War and…

There’s an old joke about lefty media bias, told through imagined headlines on the front page of The New York Times:: Asteroid Hurtling Toward Earth! Planet Doomed! Women, Minorities Hardest Hit Sadly, left-wing outlets remain determined to prove the truth in the jest. For example, The Washington Post on July 20 published an article complaining that the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade…

Frailty, thy name is … college student. Or so believes the English Literature faculty at the University of Winchester in England, where Shakespeare’s Othello has been given a “content warning.” The play’s themes of “racism” and “domestic violence” “may be difficult” for the kiddos. What’s notable here isn’t the idea of Gen Z-ers clutching their pearls over a grown-up drama, but that somebody…

Lefties Ruin Everything Exhibit 4,32,879:  I don’t want to live in a society where fun memes like “Florida man” are destroyed by progressives’ ugly manipulations of language. “Florida person with a penis” just isn’t that catchy, and it wrecks the whole rhythm of the gag.  Yet such is the kind of linguistic atrocity being wreaked on grade schoolers by some Sunshine State pointy heads. According…

At long last, somebody’s come up with a plan to save the Democrats from November electoral annihilation: the House Democrat’s “Transgender Bill of Rights.” The hell with inflation, gas prices and education. This is the ultimate supper table issue – if your supper table is in Cambridge or Berkeley or Manhattan.   According to The Hill, this Transgender Bill of Rights, “would codify the Supreme…

Hate to be all doom and groom here, but something is really wrong with Arizona’s public schools. Whether its drag shows in Tucson high schools, creepy reading lists in Maricopa County or the state teachers’ union whining that parents won’t let it’s members groom their kids in peace, public education seems to have cratered in the Grand Canyon State. The latest exhibit comes from the Scottsdale…

The super devoutly Catholic president of the United States has a super devoutly media Catholic ambassador to the Vatican. Like Joe Biden, former senator Joe Donnelly (D - In)  is an abortion enthusiast abortion and he’s up on all the latest LGBTXYZ+-*^%. You know, like all the folks the media tells us are super devout Catholics. Today is a High Holy in the Progressive liturgical calendar: The…

Insurance giant State Farm is sorry, not sorry it got caught trying to distribute transgender propaganda to schoolkids as young as five.  Yesterday I reported that the nonprofit ConsumerFirst is in possession of a leaked email concerning a State Farm philanthropic program in which the company partnered with an LBGT group. It was a weird dirty book laundering scheme whereby the GenderCool Project…

All kinds of companies engage in all kinds of charity/philanthropy. State Farm just happens to have chosen a creepy one. It partnered with a trans agenda group called The GenderCool Project, and is encouraging its agents to donate inappropriate books to schools, libraries, and other places where kids can get them. A nonprofit named ConsumerFirst obtained a leaked January email from a State Farm…
