Gazanoccio

Gazanoccio

One of the most telling and evocative pieces of art I’ve seen in a while. It is the visual encapsulation of Hamas today. You can literally tell if one of Gazans is lying because simply by it speaking. And, you can tell it’s going to lie again simply because it’s still breathing.

Sadly for humanity, Gazanoccio seems to be disturbingly effective in these degenerate times. Between the Hamas members in our nation’s universities, the Anti-Semites across Europe and all of Africa, and those various entities across the globe who are more than happy to use Israel as a proxy war against America, it paints a bleak future for the world.

A Democrat Big Lie

Banned Books - A Democrat Big Lie
Banned Books – A Democrat Big Lie

Democrats love their Big Lies, mostly because their entire political platform is founded upon them and the supposed correction of them. But, for this post, I’m going to focus upon the Big Lie of “Banned Books.”

Simply put, barring a very, very few exceptions based upon the content being ruled as fraudulent (The Federal Mafia) or being classified material (Operation Dark Heart), there are no legally banned books in America and haven’t been since the 1971 SCOTUS decision in New York Times Co. v. United States. In point of legal fact, most previously banned books were made available for general publication after 1959, when the SCOTUS in Kingsley Pictures Corp. v. Regents overturned the Federal Anti-Obscenity Act (Comstock Act) of 1873.

No, almost the entire extent of “book banning” in the US is limited to concerned individuals wanting to protect children by keeping certain sorts of reading materials out of our schools. And, this is something that both Americans and Democrats have regularly engaged in for many decades and for fundamentally the same reason – protecting impressionable children from materials that they deem to be damaging to their psyches. It must be said though that Democrats are more likely to remove material from school libraries because of the author rather than the content than Americans are, e.g., many works by Dr. Seuss – even beyond the limited set of his works that could be – in a few cases, quite easily – considered to be “racially insensitive.”

And please, do not be like the Dems and their media and equate challenging a book with successfully banning it. Among both Americans and Democrats there always has been, are, and always will be a minority that challenges the publication and dissemination of various and sundry works. They fail and, even when they seem to succeed at the local level, our court system as quickly as the wheels of law allow reverses that success due to the 1st Amendment.

So, Book Bans are just another Democrat Big Lie.

A Couple Of Additional, Personal Points

I’m just going to add a few bits of my personal opinions on related points to the core of this post, mostly because I don’t feel like doing follow-up posts to cover these tangential specifics.

Ratings & Grade Scales

In my opinion, America needs to “rate” some of these books for age appropriate content. What I’m OK with in elementary school is far more limited than what I’m OK with in middle schools. And, when it comes to high schools, there’s very little in the way of reading materials that I believe should be restricted. Blanket restrictions across all grades, just like blanket approvals, don’t make a lick of sense to me.

Parental Approval

While I’m all for opt-outs and requiring parental approvals, I can’t see how this would be effectively applied to books in school libraries. If the books can be checked out by any kid, they’ll be passed around if their made “forbidden.” All requiring parental approval would do in my opinion is create “cool kids” who got to read these and pass them around for social credit or actual monetary / material profit. The Penthouse magazines that somebody – 😉 – passed around my high school being a possibly extreme example of this.

To Kill A Mockingbird – WTF!

Just as a quick WTF sidenote, Democrats seem to hate and have tried to remove Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mocking Bird from some of their school districts, but Americans have never seemed to have a problem with it.

You’d think, given the anti-American propaganda of the ever-so-woke Left, that it’d be either the other way around or with the Democrats also having no problem with it. Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1960 novel does, after all, show stereotypical racism from Whites and fits near perfectly with the Democrats’ CRT curricula, since it showed what amounted to systemic racism and a lynch mob mentality. But no; they hate it because of problematical language and racial – that’d be towards Blacks – insensitivity.

Catcher In The Rye

I don’t believe that J. D. Salinger’s 1951 work, Catcher In The Rye should be banned from high schools. I do, however, think it should be removed from all required reading lists and school curricula. I would like to think that that book is despised by both Americans and Democrats as being harmful to minds of teenagers. In fact, I’m pretty sure that having to read and study it has tipped at least one at-risk teenager into serious depression.

Media Fact-Checkers

This is what passes for the news media today in America. How their fact-checkers handle public testimony is an example of why they are not trusted by almost any Americans and not even by that many Democrats and likely Democrats. Of course, those same Democrats and likely Democrats don’t really care. While they don’t trust the Lamestream Media and its fact-checkers, they find their mendacity useful.

#MAGA Violence Explained

#MAGA Violence Explained

Despite what the Dems’ Lamestream Media wants everyone to believe, there’s been very, very little violence perpetrated by #MAGA people. There’s been even less if one excludes semi-defensive violence resulting from protests/counter-protests resulting in the various Dem-aligned ilk foolishly assaulting them. But, what little #MAGA-related violence there has been can be explained aptly and accurately with Branco’s cartoon. The Dems’ essentially “radicalize” certain parts of our community and their media gleefully paints a targeted and biased picture of whatever unrest results.

Biden's Bad Theater

Biden's Bad Theater In Ukraine
Biden’s Bad Theater

So, last week Ole’ Creepy Uncle Joe hared off to Kyiv, Ukraine to make some sort of “statement” while handing his family’s business partner, Volodymyr Zelenskyy another big chunk of American taxpayers’ money ($500 million). And, of course, it was something of a spectacular event with air sirens going off and explosions rocking the city. It was truly a stunning time, a “great risk” to Biden, and a sure sign of his courage and commitment to the cause.

Except that it was just theater, and very bad theater at that.

Indeed, Biden’s bad theater was so bad that even CNN – ever Democrat loyalists – felt compelled to comment upon it.

I’ve been here for the past five days. I have not heard any explosions. I have not heard any air sirens, until about half an hour ago, right when Joe Biden was in the center of Kyiv

But, Biden’s bad theater is par for the course with this “administration.” It’s just a bit more expensive than most off, off, off, off Broadway productions. It’s also the best that they can do, since they have to worry about a Code Silver every moment Biden’s awake and moving around where people can see or hear him.
