Nevada Democrats: Are They All Crazy Here?

     Ousted Nevada Assemblyman Steven Brooks was formally sentenced for leading California police on a car chase and then hitting a dog with a wrench:

“Brooks has already served 485 days in San Bernardino and Rancho Cucamonga jails, and with an additional 485 days of conduct credits, his sentence has been served in full. However, Deputy District Attorney Shannon Faherty said Brooks has two ‘extraditable holds’ for charges in Nevada, so he will ‘get on the bus’ back to jail and wait for his likely extradition.”

     Of course, there is still plenty of craziness left in the Nevada Democrat Party: A Secretary of State who believes the rights of zombies trump the 1st Amendment; Harry Reid; a state Treasurer who believes in the anti-time inversion of the laws of cause and effect; a state Senator who channels Berthold Brecht in the basest racial terms; Harry Reid; and Auton-American Shelley Berkley.

Libertarian or Conservative?

     Should these be considered diametrically opposed worldviews, or simply two sides of the same coin?

     Russell Kirk would certainly agree that “libertarians” (or as Hayek prefers to call them “liberals,” in the classic sense) and “conservatives” are not the same thing.

     However Frank Meyer‘s “fusionism,” suggests that traditional American conservatism and “classical liberalism”/”libertarianism” are but two sides to the same coin.

     What traditional conservatives want to conserve, is the liberty that the classical liberals love, and the American society that made that liberty possible. That liberty, though, does not exist in a vacuum, and can only exist if the people and society are conducive towards it. That natural virtue that allowed America to keep its freedom for so long is something that can only grow organically from society, and can pop into existence neither through sheer lack of government nor through government dictate. Once that is gone, it can not be replaced. A working society requires limits, either they come from within, or it must be imposed. The brilliance of America lies in the fact that society was capable of self-regulation without government imposition, such that liberty could thrive.

     Culture, norms, mores, folkways, &c. are important and must be fought for and protected, but it can only be done OUTSIDE the realm of coercie government. Society, generally speaking, must be allowed to regulate itself. Above all else, the government should not be given the tools to destroy that culture the allowed liberty to thrive. Continue reading

This Is What Colleges Today Have Become

     A Freshman at Vassar describes his experience at orientation, wherein he was informed of the evils of cis-hetero-patriarical Whiteness.  The following is from a Reddit post to the /r/MensRights sub-reddit:

“Before going to my college of choice, I knew it was a place full of SJWs. However, it was the best college I had gotten into, and I wasn’t going to worsen my education do to opposing politics. I also figured that as long as I avoid the ethnic/women’s studies departments I would be avoid the SJW stuff. I was wrong.

“The first day I was on campus, I had to meet with my student fellow group. We had to go around a small circle and introduce ourselves, with things such as our name, our major, and where we are from: typical things. But we were also forced to say our preferred pronouns. In fact, when any student speaker introduced themselves (or should I say ‘xerselves’) they said their preferred pronouns.

Species Is Just A Social Construct

     Despite actual genetic differences, i.e. the presence or lack of a Y-chromosome, “gender” is said to be a “social construct,” unless it is convenient to say one is “born that way.”  There are physical and actual physiological differences between the sexes, but because reality conflicts with Progressive sexual ideology, those who support reality are simply denounced as “H8rz.”

     If the difference in one chromosome doesn’t matter, than why should the difference in any chromosome matter?

     Scott Ott, over at PJ Media, contemplates just such a situation:

Quick Takes – “Undocumented” Sex Trafficking, “Undocumented” Gun-toting, & “Undocumented” hypocrisy.

     Another “quick takes” on items where there is too little to say to make a complete article, but is still important enough to comment on.

     The focus this time: Illegal Aliens and the Gringos who love them.

     First, a little mood music:

     Now let us continue…

     With the huge uptick in the number of minor illegal aliens coming in across the southern U. S. border, the trafficking of humans for nefarious reasons has also gone up:

“[Rep. Jim] Bridenstine said that the traffickers exploit the children they’re bringing into the country, especially if the parents who are supposed to pay for the trafficking fail to come up with the money.

“‘If you can’t pay your coyote or your criminal organization, they will force you into slave labor or they will force you into prostitution,’ the congressman said. And of the children who did make it to American custody, ‘a significant percentage of the children in these facilities have been abused, in one way or another, coming to the United States,’ according to Bridenstine.”

     You’d that the Leftists who support all these “dreamers” would want to stop the traffickers who profit off of children, right?

     Ahahahaha!  A few thousand sex-slaves is a small price to pay for the fundamental demographic (and electoral) transformation of America…

Progressive Education: With What Are Kids Being Indoctrinated?

     The Gramcian “long march” through the institutions has primarily been targeted at the public institutions of education.  The imposition of Cultural Marxism to fundamentally transform society has been most effective when targeted against children, especially when done in such a way that parents are eschewed by either cloaking the true intent of the indoctrination or by the abandoning child-rearing to the state itself.  By relentlessly pushing nonsensical oppression fantasies, the Progressive “educators” are creating a generation of moldable foot-soldiers for the Progressive cause.

     And just what is it that children are taught?

“An English curriculum grounded in social justice rests on a belief based in equity—that each person should have access to resources regardless of race, gender, ability, age, socio-economic status, or sexual orientation.

“…

“Social, economic, cultural and political frameworks of the readings are sometimes explored explicitly through eight critical lenses: feminist, deconstruction, new criticism, new historical/biographical, reader response, post-colonial, psychological and Marxist theory.”

A Bit of Firearm Sanity in Britain?

“That the subjects… may have arms for their defence suitable to their conditions and as allowed by law”

- The English Bill of Rights.

     Nigel Farage, of the UK Independence Party (UKIP),  gave an interview where he made a sane and rational statement: “I think the ban on handguns is ludicrous.”

     Unsurprisingly, some freedom-hating Brits think this is a scary idea:

     While she sees an indictment.  We see a bit of sanity starting to show up.
