The nooze actually had a theme last week: everybody’s going crazy. Here are a few examples.
Item: Bed, Bath & Beyond in Nyack, New York, had to stop selling black-painted jack-o-lanterns, and recite the usual groveling apologies, after the usual gaggle of injustice collectors complained that the pumpkins were—you guessed it—racist. Yes, racist pumpkins. A spokesgroveler for the national chain said BB&B never wants to “offend” or “exclude” anyone.
Other than the Democrat Party, who goes out of his way to insult the people he’s trying to get to buy his product? Oh, wait, I forgot—it’s always okay to insult someone who does not belong to any Cherished Minority Group.
Item: Seattle’s public schools, and the unionized communists who “teach” there, have proposed to bring in “Social Justice Math”. That’s math “infused” with leftist blather. “If Johnny has two apples but his great-great-grandfather fought for the South in the Civil War, how many apples should Johnny be *allowed* to have?”
Because correct answers to math problems are—you guessed it—racist.
Item: Hillary Clinton has another new excuse for losing the 2016 presidential election. She says she was done out of what was rightfully herds by “flashing videos”—sort of like subliminal advertising, too fast to be seen except subconsciously—on the “dark web”.
The dark web is a precinct of the Internet inaccessible to ordinary users. Mostly it’s used by criminals, especially pedophiles. Was she counting on their vote? Well, she’s convinced that a lot of people saw flashing videos of her doing “horrible things” that of course she didn’t really do, and that ruined her bid for the White House.
Item: A Texas jury ruled that a father has to back off and do nothing while his ex-wife has his 7-year-old son “transitioned” into a fake girl by drugs, hormones, and brainwashing. This has gone way beyond crazy into the profoundly evil. Thankfully a loud public outcry has resulted in an intervention by Gov. Greg Abbott and the state attorney general.
Meanwhile the court also ordered the father to “affirm” that his son is now a girl. “Freedom of speech” has been redefined. It now means the government is free to tell you what you must say. And that’s crazy.
Item: At a Pan-Amazon Synod currently being held at the Vatican, Pope Francis and a mob of off-base bishops are celebrating the pagan beliefs of the indigenous people of South America, complete with wooden idols of a native “goddess”. Suddenly “Is the pope Catholic?” isn’t such a rhetorical question anymore.
This is nothing less than syncretism—the corrupt practice of diluting Christianity with paganism until what you have is heathen “spirituality” with meaningless “Christian” trappings. We are told that certain German bishops are hot to trot for this, and that they and the pope see it as a way to strengthen the Church’s not altogether wholesome alliance with the United Nations.
Opposing this scheme, and these shenanigans, has been condemned as—need you ask?—racist.
There you have it: goofiness galore, all perpetrated by The Smartest People In The World. In the words of Psalm 2,
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?… He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure.”
Don’t say He didn’t warn you.
