Two or ten years ago, depicting the execution of your own president in the U.S. and broadcasting that to the world was a super inappropriate thing to do, let alone openly inciting others to violence against his person or family. Even the extremists of those times never went that far. But apparently all that’s changed now. “You can trace a line from Occupy Wall Street in 2011 through Black Lives Matter in 2013 through Bernie Sanders in 2016 through the Women’s March a year later, Tom Steyer’s and Maxine Waters’s impeachment campaigns, the growing prominence of Democratic Socialists of America, and the movement to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement today.
But despite the insane furore in America, even a year and a half later, over the election of someone as unlikely as Donald Trump, the collapse of the Center-Left is not just or even primarily an American phenomenon. Have a look at this article by a Cambridge leftist about how throughout Europe the mainstream left is losing consistently for the first time since the Second World War. The moderate left, the democratic socialists or “soft socialists” who have been mostly in power since the late ’40s, are completely falling apart: losing adherents to the Far-Left and the Middle-Right. What’s the cause of this completely new, unprecedented, and unpredicted trend?

California continues its quest to be the craziest state in the union. The ACLU cosponsored this bill and described it as “modernizing” California HIV laws. In their report, the ACLU said that the law criminalizing the [intentional] exposure of others to the HIV virus was passed in the 1980s and was “based on fear and the limited medical understanding of the time.” LGBT activists also praised the new law, alleging that the former legislation unfairly disfavored specific groups (people of color and transgender women). The new law clearly indicates that if you wanna infect someone with HIV on purpose, hey – it’s just a misdemeanor now, nothin’ serious.

Okay the NFL’s not finished, not by a long shot. But this is a great image by artist Tom Stigligh that well captures the emotional frustration many lifelong pro football fans (including yours truly) feel about the controversial, divisive, and entirely unnecessary intrusion of empty political symbolism into your formerly relaxing Sunday afternoon.

If your university’s administration is stocked full of sycophants to the Progressive theology, it’s likely they will dutifully allow a platform for your leftist message and hesitate to resist your passion for “Social Justice” even if it should it become violent. And parents of all political persuasions, faced with spending tens of thousands of dollars a year for college (even in-state), are not hesitating to cross your school off their list of places they believe would provide their son or daughter a safe and educational environment.

It’s important for readers to know that Female Genital Mutilation is not “Female Circumcision”. That is a term used by defenders of the practice in order to make FGM seem equivalent by comparison to male circumcision. Circumcision of males carries the same risk of infection as any other medical procedure that involves cutting skin but is otherwise harmless. FGM on the other hand has long-lasting, often lifelong physical and emotional consequences for girls and is done for purposes that have nothing to do with a woman’s health or well-being.
