How progressives think
still another in a series!
Comedy is racist!
Robin DiAngelo warned that “Comedy is . . . an excuse to get to be racist.” The remarks of the author of the book “White Fragility” were carried on the Wisconsin-based non-profit Mythinformed. DiAngelo singled out “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons” as racist entertainment. For free speech advocates, the comments are concerning given the crackdown in other countries on comedians. — More from Jonathan Turley.
“I have been getting leaned on a bit by some of the Democratic Party elders. Their subtle, nuanced message amounts to: lay the hell off Tony Evers, you asshole. This has caused me to reflect on what it means to be a moderate.” — Former mayor Dave Cieslewicz.

The Dispatch adds up the trillions that congressional Democrats have spent or want to spend over the next decade:
- $3.5 trillion on “human infrastructure,”
- $600 billion in new spending on traditional infrastructure,
- $1 trillion on new discretionary spending,
- $1 trillion on programs with fake expiration dates, plus the COVID relief bill that passed in March.
“How much is $8 trillion? Enough for Washington to deposit $60,000 into each family’s bank account. … Instead, it would go to a grab bag of expensive government expansions.”

“If you’re taking flak, you’re over the target.”
— anonymous WW2 bomber pilot.
“Diplomacy is often seen as an end rather than a means. We want diplomats to accomplish things, not to get along with each other just for the sake of getting along. For too long, Democrats have cottoned to a foreign policy that says it’s better to be wrong in a big group than to be right alone.” — Jonah Goldberg
The corrolary of Gresham’s Law is that bad information drives out good. — the Head Groundskeeper.
“Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.” – Voltaire
“Progressives’ great talent is policing — and they are always on patrol.” — Peggy Noonan
“Populism is best understood as the politics of the mob.” — Jonathan Goldberg.
‘Inside every Progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out’ — David Horowitz
“The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”
— John Roberts, chief justice of the U.S., 2007.

Might benign neglect help America’s ‘underclass’? When #45 talked about “[hell]hole countries,” he had places like Haiti in mind. The poorest nation in the western hemisphere is a nightmarish dystopia. Denuded, eroded, uneducated, disease-ridden, defeated, and riven by superstition. Now … Continue reading →

More from ‘Madison’s token conservative’ (Does that make Blaska a protected class?) Madison is over-policing certain populations, according to the official progressive party line. You’ll have to take it on faith because that theorem has never been challenged — much less … Continue reading →
Who ya gonna call? Social justice warrior or a plumber? Who is doing more to help young Marquon achieve the American dream of two cars in the garage (his own cars in his own garage, that is) and keep his … Continue reading →
Race-baiting progressives’ worst nightmare. The hard left is scared (it rhymes with) witless of Tim Scott. Because he is a black conservative. Because he is a Republican United States senator from the birthplace of the Confederacy. Because he is an … Continue reading →
