Bernie Sanders Jumps the Shark on Border Enforcement

Westlake Legal Group bernie Bernie Sanders Jumps the Shark on Border Enforcement Politics open borders Illegal Immigration Ice HHS Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Crazy CPB Bernie Sanders

The 2020 Democratic primary has devolved into insanity, or perhaps it started off that way? We’ve seen the delusional, dictatorial rantings of people like Beto O’Rourke on guns and Kamala Harris on plastic straws. There’s essentially no level of crazy these people aren’t willing to go to in order to pander to the radical left.

Of course, Bernie Sanders has been doing that his entire life, so it’s no surprise when he keeps the train rolling.

Enter the latest bright idea from a guy so intellectually worthless that he got fired from a commune.

While speaking before a left-wing Latino audience, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders pledged to end immigration raids and impose a “moratorium” on all deportations.

“We are going to end the ICE raids that are terrorizing communities all across this country,” Sanders said Saturday in Las Vegas, according to footage flagged by the Republican National Committee. “We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations. And we are going to, as I mentioned — and there are some things that a president can do with executive orders and some things you can’t.”

A moratorium on deportations, eh? Sounds legit. I mean, it’s not like ICE needs to ability to deport criminals who would otherwise remain here committing more crimes, right? This is a level of shark jumping levels not seen since the Fonz took the water that fateful day. It’s like saying let’s close all prisons or stop enforcing all non-violent penal statues (well, Joe Biden did kind of say that).

Even past the rule of law issues, which stand tall on their own, the impracticality of it all sticks out like a sore thumb. Our system is already overloaded. Now, Bernie wants to tell HHS that no one can be deported? Where will they live? Who will pay for them? Never mind that such an action would result in a massive influx of dangerous, un-vetted illegal immigration. The border has just now started to calm down and Bernie wants to fling the door open again and give away free cocktails on the way in. Think of how much that would benefit the cartels and how many women and children would lose their lives with such a policy.

Democrats are going to calling for seizing citizen’s homes to house illegal immigrants pretty soon. I mean, what’s the next logical escalation of their craziness? They already want to give out free healthcare and college. What about free cars? Free phones? It’s as if money has no finite value.

Let’s be real though. This is actually about simply releasing illegal immigrants into the general population with no accountability. Damage to them or others be damned. The Democrats are playing an incredibly dangerous and cynical game. In a saner political environment, they’d be mercilessly mocked for such ideas. Instead, they are lauded by our media. But these are the stakes in 2020 and why seeing that a Democrat isn’t elected is so important.

Joe Biden Won the Contest For the Most Ridiculous Statement At Last Night’s Debate

Last night, two bad teams got together to pillow fight on Thursday Night Football, yet if you decided to watch it instead of the Democratic Primary debate, congratulations. You made the right decision.

It was full cries of racism, lies about socialism, and Trump bashing, and as per usual, lots and lots of crazy policy proposals. On that front, a surprising candidate took home the award for the most ridiculous one. Yes, Beto O’Rourke wants to take your guns and Elizabeth Warren claims her bazillion dollar programs won’t raise taxes on the middle class, but Joe Biden said something last night that eclipses them all in terms of sheer insanity. Given he’s the supposed “moderate” in the race, that’s not a contest he’s supposed to be winning.

This is Joe Biden, so the first thing we have to ask is whether he even knew what he was saying. This is the same guy who can’t remember what day it is half the time and nearly had his eye explode on national TV. In other words, it’s possible he’ll walk this back.

For the time being though, let’s talk about how nonsensical this is.

Imagine world where “non-violent” criminals like drug dealers, financial scammers, and thieves carry no chance of incarceration. Heck, we don’t even have to imagine it. Just take a flight out to California and witness the chaos caused by the fact that shop-lifters aren’t arrested unless they steal over $900 (Prop 47). What’s that led to? People stealing $800 worth of stuff knowing they likely won’t be pursued and certainly won’t be jailed.

Now, take that outcome and multiply it’s effects by a million and you’d get what would happen if we stopped giving jail time to non-violent criminals. There would be zero deterrent to committing robbery, carrying out white collar crime, or bribing someone in power. The drug cartels would explode even more as nearly every part of their apparatus would no longer be subject to imprisonment.

I’m sure Biden will walk this back. Perhaps he already has. But what this shows though is just how bad he is at this. The guy’s teeth nearly fell out of his head last night as he garbled his words. He talked about record players in a bizarre answer at one point. Am I really supposed to believe this is the guy that’s going to out campaign Donald Trump? No doubt, he starts with major advantages which I’ve laid out before. He’s “ole Joe,” the comfortable, safe pick for a lot of moderates. But this campaign has barely started and if Biden somehow stumbles into the nomination, Trump is going to absolutely work him over. Whether that translates into winning in 2020, I don’t know because Trump has his own issues with voters. What I do know is that Democrats should probably be wishing for someone more capable to take on the incumbent.

The NYTs Wants You to Meet America’s “Rising Drag Stars” That Also Happen to Be Prepubescent Children

Sexualizing prepubescent children seems to be a bit of a fetish now on the left and it’s only becoming more prominent.

We’ve already seen outrageous scenes like an 11 year old mimicing snorting Ketamine with an older man (dressed like a woman) while the media praise him and the authorities do nothing. Meanwhile, outlets like The Huffington Post have lauded this new “movement” as empowering and inspiring, even as underage boys are seen taking nude pictures with adult drag queens.

Enter The New York Times, who apparently wasn’t happy sitting on the sidelines.

“I’m excited!” screamed Desmond Napoles, a 12-year-old drag star who performs as Desmond is Amazing, punctuating his enthusiasm with mild profanity. His eyes darted to his phone. Then he backtracked. “Don’t put that in. Don’t put that in.” He would soon be grounded from Snapchat by his mother for what she called “sass.”

Desmond and his mother would still make it to the object of Desmond’s excitement: DragCon, the convention hosted by RuPaul in New York City in early September. It would be Desmond’s third year in a row. He isn’t a different person in drag so much as a more outgoing version of himself, he said. “I’m always fierce, fabulous and not playing video games,” he said. “I’m being AH-MA-zing.”

Such hard hitting journalism. Nowhere in this article do you find any skepticism of how healthy this is. They don’t mention any of controversies surrounding these kids, and there have been several, including runs in with a pedophile. It’s all just fluff writing and celebration.

Meanwhile, you can see cracks in the public personas being bandied about.

Desmond has since pulled back on performing, though he will attend DragCon. Even there, among fans, he is not particularly looking forward to the crowds. When fans yell his name and swarm him for hugs, “it makes me anxious,” he said. He dreams of being an ornithologist when he grows up, he said, or a roller-coaster engineer.

Of course it makes him anxious. 12 year old boys twerking and performing like a stripper for older, mentally ill men is not something a kid should be doing and it’s only natural that the attention is going to affect him in a negative light. None of this is normal but we live in a society that is so obsessed with being “inclusive” that everyone is scared to call bad behavior bad now. It’s one thing when you are dealing with adults. I’m fairly libertarian there. Go do whatever you want as far as the government is concerned. But what’s happening to these kids is child abuse and there will be dire consequences for them as they grow older.

For now though, their parents seem to enjoy the notoriety and media attention. The sexualization and using of children in this way is just another black mark on our civilization.

Female Students Locked Out of School In UK for Not Wearing “Gender Neutral” Outfits

Westlake Legal Group woke-620x351 Female Students Locked Out of School In UK for Not Wearing “Gender Neutral” Outfits woke watch Video UK transgender Sussex School skirts Politics Outfits Locked Out gender neutral Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Crazy

The world is going insane, one woke policy at a time.

This story comes to us from the UK, where a school in East Sussex decided they needed to ban all “gendered” clothing in order to not offend the sensibilities of transgender students. That meant girls would have to wear pants at all times. If that sounds ridiculous, that’s because it is.

The school decided the best course of action was to literally lock the gates and not allow girls who had skirts on to enter the school. That boiled into a protest of over 150 kids.

A huge crowd demonstrated with banners outside Lewes Priory, in East Sussex, demanding the school reverses its gender neutral policy banning girls from wearing skirts.

Sussex Police were brought in to help control the planned protests and officers were seen standing guard at the entrance checking uniforms.

But many students found they couldn’t attend classes on their first day of term, after teachers closed the main gates when the crowd gathered outside.

The demonstration comes after the school announced in 2017 that all students were required to wear trousers, after ‘concerns’ were raised over the length of skirts and to accommodate transgender pupils.

I’m not even sure it’s fair to blame transgender students here. I don’t see any evidence anyone was even complaining and it would be incredibly stupid to complain about girls wearing skirts just because someone has delusions about their own gender. There’s not even a real connective factor between those two things.

What this smacks of is an overbearing, woke faculty pushing their silly world view of “equality” onto their students. It may also simply be an excuse to ban short skirts because they didn’t like them.

Here’s a video of the students being locked out.

Pete Buttigieg Tells Bernie to Hold His Beer On Abortion

Pete Buttigieg by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Pete Buttigieg is lecturing Christians again.

This time he’s battering scripture by claiming that God doesn’t consider a baby in the womb a life until it takes its first breath. This comes on the heels of Bernie Sanders saying he supports taxpayer funded foreign abortions to cull the population in order to fight climate change. Depravity knows no limits within the Democrat part. We are just a few weeks away from Kamala Harris questioning whether toddlers really have a right to life at this point.

Here’s Buttigieg’s comments.

Buttigieg’s reasoning for holding such a sick, ridiculous, and unscientific view? The Bible of course, because he’s the authority on all matters of Christianity these days.

Specifically, he references the scripture that speaks of God breathing life into man that can be found in Genesis 2. Of course, this is a completely out of context, cherry picked example that ignores everything else about that passage and subsequent verses. At that moment, God was not breathing life into a already living, growing human being. He was literally forming Adam from nothing in his image and then flipping on the light switch so to speak. What Buttigieg references was an event that created human life to then perpetuate through reproduction.

There is no question that an unborn baby is alive, human, and a separate being. It does not magically turn into a person the moment it takes a breath outside the womb. Anyone arguing that is pushing anti-factual garbage. Further, getting back to Buttigieg’s religious claims, the Bible makes it crystal clear that children in the womb are people.

Buttigieg would go on to lie about abortion restrictions as well, claiming that most Americans believe there should be none. In reality, around 80% of the country support bans on abortion in the third trimester and a majority support banning them after the 1st trimester. More people support banning all abortions than complete, unfettered abortion.

Call me old fashioned, but Buttigieg is playing with fire here. As the Book of James warns, those that teach evil while couching it as the word of God will be judged most harshly. This kind of twisting of scripture is just sick. It’s the kind of thing you’d expect a racist from the 1800s to do to support slavery, except in this case it’s a major Democratic candidate stumping for killing children until they take their first breath. Logically, that would mean you could kill a child after leaving the birth canal. It’s insane and murderous.

Buttigieg isn’t going to be the nominee, but he’s certainly exposed himself as someone in desperate need of truth. I pray he he turns from this course he’s on.

Kamala Harris Sure Sounds Like She Wants to Be a Dictator

Westlake Legal Group kamala-harris-donkeyhotey-620x443 Kamala Harris Sure Sounds Like She Wants to Be a Dictator Politics media bias left-wing kamala harris Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story dogma Dictator desperation democrats Crazy CNN Climate Crisis Town Hall banning 2020

Kamala Harris – Caricature by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Kamala Harris campaign is floundering.

After Tulsi Gabbard rhetorically decapitated her in the second DNC debate, she’s been struggling to regain traction and make up lost ground. So far, she hasn’t shown much comeback power. That doesn’t mean she’s not going to try though and the main shtick she’s settled on is essentially proclaim she’ll operate as a dictator once elected. This apparently really gets the Democratic bases’ juices flowing.

Take CNN’s “Climate Crisis” town hall a few nights ago. In it, Harris made all kinds of wild promises, many of which she’d have no power to implement even if she were elected.

There’s a problem there. Namely, that the President has absolutely nothing to do with eliminating the filibuster. To be sure, she’s not just making a suggestion in the event Democrats retake the Senate. Harris has said on Twitter directly that “I’ll get rid of the filibuster.” How? No one in the mainstream media have bothered to ask her that, nor have their been any fact-checks on the matter. She just says it and that’s that.

Harris wasn’t done though. She then launched into a variety of ways she wants to control your life and destroy the economy.

Harris wants to “have a real priority” at the highest levels of government to change American’s eating habits in order to combat climate change. She says she will change the dietary guidelines to do so and enforce incentives to change behavior. What that would look like exactly, she doesn’t say, but it’s certainly not something within the purview of the presidency. The woman who asked the question seemed eager for her to say she’ll outright ban red meat, which gives you a window into just how authoritarian and crazy the left have become.

Banning plastic straws is perhaps one of the stupider ideas that’s caught fire in the last few years. It’s like peeing on a forest fire, never mind the issues of personal freedom at stake. The hysteria over plastic straws holds very little basis in science but it sounds good to environmentalists, so liberals keep supporting it. Surprise, Harris is all in.

She also wants to ban America’s energy source that does the most to cut carbon emissions in order to fight climate change. Yes, that’s a total contradiction, but when something is left wing dogma, it must be adhered to.

That’ll go over swimmingly in natural gas producing states. The anti-fracking movement is no better than the anti-vaxxer movement. It’s pure nonsense with zero basis in scientific reality. Fracking does not cause earthquakes or poison ground water. It provides a cheap, cleaner source of energy that has been the primary driver in carbon emissions reductions. Harris wants to ban it though because she wants to ban everything.

I’m not sure what’s scarier in these clips. Harris pandering, where she’ll seemingly agree with anything to gain support, or the Democrat voters asking these questions in the first place. These people want to control every aspect of your life, all the way down to what you eat and how you can drink your coke. They see hysteria around climate change as a way to garner power and they intend to use it. None of this is really about reducing emissions though. If it were, Harris would be promoting fracking, not wanting to ban it, and she’d be stumping for nuclear power.

No, this all really about control. Nothing more, nothing less.

The Ratings for CNN’s “Climate Crisis” Town Hall Are In

Westlake Legal Group poll-crash-620x426 The Ratings for CNN’s “Climate Crisis” Town Hall Are In ratings Politics Pete Buttgieg MSNBC media bias Hysteria Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story Elizabeth Warren donald trump Don Lemon democrats Crazy crash CNN Climate Change Chris Cuomo Bernie Sanders

Last night, CNN subjected television viewers to the torturous exercise of listening to 2020 Democrat candidates riff on climate change for seven straight hours. We got all kinds of craziness, from Bernie promoting taxpayer funded abortions to cull the population and reduce emissions to Buttigieg lecturing on the morality of eating hamburgers. If you want the government to control every aspect of your life, these people are your ticket.

The question is, how many people were actually watching? If you guessed that Fox News, with just their regular lineup, would nearly triple CNN’s viewership, congrats.

Half of that probably came from airports and gyms. The numbers above are averages over the seven hour period and they aren’t particularly close to their competition. Even MSNBC’s raving conspiratorial lunacy almost doubled up CNN.

Perhaps the problem here isn’t content. Perhaps it’s just CNN? When Democrats go on Fox News or MSNBC for debates or “town halls,” they do much better in the ratings. When they go sit down with Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo, nobody watches. That’s not just a coincidence at this point. It really does seem as if the public have tuned out the gas-lighting, liberal network and certainly not without cause.

Or maybe it is content on some level? How many people really want to sit through even one hour (much less seven) of Democrats making wild claims and promising to destroy the economy? That’s not exactly riveting TV. It may also speak to the possibility that enthusiasm for this Democrat group is not nearly as high as the media would like you to believe.

There is one problem with some of the hot takes about last night’s town hall though. I’ve heard a lot of people saying Trump was the big winner. Can he really be the winner if no one was watching?

We’re All Hitler Now

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-13 We’re All Hitler Now the washington post right wing Politics media bias Illiberlism Hitler Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Donna Zuckerberg democrats debate Dave Rubin Crazy Censorship Ben Shapiro

If you believe in using reason and debate to arrive at sound conclusions, congrats, you are now basically Hitler.

That’s the the logic being applied by a series of recent spate of op-eds over at The Washington Post. The line of thinking goes something like this. Hitler ate steak. You eat steak. Therefore, you are obviously Hitler. Makes sense, right?

My colleague streiff covered one of these articles a few days ago, which sought to connect those who argue with logic and facts to the slave owners of the Antebellum South.

Here’s another excerpt from the article itself to give you an idea of how specious the reasoning is. Dang it, there I go citing reason again, which obviously makes me a fascist.

These are figures who typically dislike President Trump but often say they’re being pushed rightward — sometimes away from what they claim is their natural leftward bent — by intolerance and extremism on the left. The reasonable right includes people like Shapiro and the radio commentator Dave Rubin; legal scholar Amy Wax and Jordan Peterson, the Canadian academic who warns about identity politics; the social psychologist Jonathan Haidt; the New York Times columnist Bari Weiss and the American Enterprise Institute scholar Christina Hoff Sommers, self-described feminists who decry excesses in the feminist movement; the novelist Bret Easton Ellis and the podcaster Sam Harris, who believe that important subjects have needlessly been excluded from political discussions. They present their concerns as, principally, freedom of speech and diversity of thought. Weiss has called them “renegade” ideological explorers who venture into “dangerous” territory despite the “outrage and derision” directed their way by haughty social gatekeepers.

The reasonable right’s rhetoric is exactly the same as the antebellum rhetoric I’d read so much of. The same exact words. The same exact arguments. Rhetoric, to be precise, in support of the slave-owning South.

The Washington Post wasn’t done though. Less than a day later, they pushed out another piece, this time asserting that those who seek honest debate are actually just doing what Nazi Germany did.

Excerpts via the Washington Examiner.

“A call to debate may seem intellectual, even civilized,” she continued. “In theory, well-structured and respectful debates are an ideal opportunity to reach an audience that isn’t fixed in its views. In reality, however, most ‘debate me’ types seem to view them mainly as a chance to attack their opponent’s credibility,” Zuckerberg wrote. “Their model is not Lincoln and Douglas, but rather Socrates: By needling their interlocutors with rapid-fire questions, they aim to reveal, as they see it, their opponents’ ignorance and stupidity, and their own superior intelligence and logic.”

Oh crap, Socrates is cancelled.

Keep in mind that the Socratic method forms a major cornerstone of Western civilization’s ability to think critically. Dang, I did again. Citing Western civilization also makes you a Nazi according to these people. Anyway, check out this passage.

“Platonic texts show Socrates pulling any number of Athenians into debates, and although some are eager to argue with him, others can hardly wait to escape him by the end of the dialogue. Plato’s ‘Euthyphro’ concludes with Euthyphro insisting that he has to leave, while Socrates calls after him, complaining that they haven’t yet figured out the nature of piety. Many of the dialogues end when the interlocutor has been bludgeoned into submission and seems to find it easier to agree with Socrates than continue further — every ‘debate me’ man’s dream.”

Wait, are you telling me that when facts, reason, and logic are on your side, you tend to win arguments? Shocking stuff. This author finds that reprehensible though and decides that those who use such methods are really just Nazis or something.

Zuckerberg later distilled her opinion, writing, “My actual, nuanced argument is that the long enmeshment of the classics and white supremacy, both in Nazi Germany and in the pre-Civil War American South, continues to inform how we understand the ancient Mediterranean, and that progressive classical scholars should discuss that legacy and confront it.”

I don’t find much nuance in that argument. I find it to be overly broad and connective of two things that aren’t actually connected at all.

As I stated at the beginning of the article, it’s the “Hitler did this, you do this, so you are Hitler” argument. Just because bad people sometimes do the same things good people do, it doesn’t make said things inherently negative or evil. Hitler also road in cars and peed in a toilet. Yet, those things aren’t connected to white supremacy. Neither are the classics and the open debate model we’ve learned from them, which themselves have nothing to do with pushing racial superiority.

In fact, such means of reasoning have led mankind to a much more humane, healthy place than previous centuries. It’s through reason (and religious principles) that we were able to move toward equality and away from discrimination in the first place. The ancient world, which was rife with brutality and slavery lacked the very things this author now decries. Socrates was not an evil bully. He was someone who valued critical thinking and mental stimulation, things that have undoubtedly made the world a better place. As we’ve learned through various failings throughout history, relying on emotion to set policy and dictate social norms has created disastrous results. It’s how you ended up with people arguing that other human beings weren’t actually human beings. Logic and reason is what destroys such arguments. It doesn’t propagate them.

But you can see the wider goal of this author’s ideology. It’s essentially to buttress her illiberal notions, painting the very things that allow us to debate logically as evil, thereby asserting that any disagreement at all with her worldview is itself evil.

This is ridiculous stuff, but it’s also dangerous stuff that’s gaining a following. It leads to a place where facts no longer matter and there’s no foundational consensus undergirding our society. When that’s gone, we are simply at the whim of whoever can convince enough people their way is the “right” way. Appeals to logic and reason are simply ignored.

I would think mainstream press outlets like the Post would choose not to push nonsense like this given it contradicts with their stated respect of fact. I guess not.

In the end, one would hope people like this author will simply alienate enough people so as to have no power to implement what they seek. Sometimes I wonder if we are really winning this battle though.

AOC Is Back and We’re All Going to Die

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-2-4-620x317 AOC Is Back and We’re All Going to Die Politics Instagram Global Warming glaciers Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Drought DOOM disease democrats Crazy Climate Change Certifiable AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

I wrote last week about the mysterious absence of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from Twitter and what it said about her. Her sudden muteness seemed to coincide directly with the “reassigning” of her Chief of Staff, who had long been speculated to be the “brains” behind her and the other Justice Democrats. He’s the one who started the movement from the ground up and he’s the one who was directly controlling all of AOC’s communications.

Without him, she suddenly went dark, only further feeding rumors that she relied heavily on Saikat Chakrabarti to deliver her whit and snark.

Well, she’s back and she’s basically confirming those rumors to be true if her performance is any measure.

Diseases being released from glaciers. What the…?

She then goes on to rant more about climate change, asserting that every coastal city is going to be underwater, not in hundreds of years, but soon. As if she’s reading from some kind of Biblical prophecy, she then predicts droughts and the human race dying out.

She bases all of this on absolutely nothing substantive, but if she really believes it, maybe leaving New York would be prudent. It is a coastal city after all, and by her telling, it’ll be under water in the near future.

This woman is certifiable. None of this is normal. The only thing that keeps me from just laughing at this and moving on is that people with these views are actually gaining ground right now, not losing it. AOC is an elected member of Congress. She’s not just some rando on Instagram. That’s a pretty disconcerting reality. We are less than a decade from her likely running for president.

Unlike the Obamas and many other liberal elites though, I actually think she believes what she’s saying. This is her cult and she’s all in. Her level of anxiety about the doomsday predictions she’s spouting probably require some form of therapy at this point. I almost feel sorry for her.

Perhaps the most disconcerting evolution of our society in the past decade has been the rise of “wokeness” which is simply a hip name for the poison that is intersectionality. The idea that we aren’t defined by our individual merits and qualities (or in the eyes of God if you are religious), but rather that we are part of a monolithic “identity group,” with each identity being inherently more or less valuable depending on the current liberal hierarchy.

This is why you see even the most mundane facets of Christianity being attacked on the left but Islam being treated with kid gloves. It’s why you see such an obsession among Democrats with race and electing leaders not based on their ideas, but by what gender they are. Intersectionality may, in some isolated cases, stem from good desires. More often then not though, it’s simply a way to aggregate power for a select few.

It’s also poisonous to personal relationships. Take Saira Rao, who made a bit of a name for herself on Twitter as being the most over the top “woke” feminist on the platform.

She recently made a series of posts complaining that she had lost all her friends after trying to push them into her intersectional views.

Who would have ever imagined that your friends might shun you if you demanded they “give up whiteness.” What does that even mean? That’s simply not a thing a non-crazy person asks of someone they are in a personal relationship with. It’s the kind of shaming you’d expect from someone attempting to force their friends into a cult.

What Rao was really saying to her friends, which she doesn’t seem to realize, is that her own political views are more important than the views of her friends. When they didn’t bow before her intersectional evangelism, Rao didn’t take that as a sign that perhaps it’s ok to have differing views. Instead, she kept coming at them, shaming them, shoving propaganda in their face, and ultimately slandering them. Is it any surprise they eventually stopped hanging out with her?

More crazily, Rao doesn’t show any introspection or regret at all. Rather, she goes on to compare her friends to members of the KKK and calls them white supremacists.

If you are starting to think wokeness borders on mental illness, you wouldn’t be alone. This is not normal behavior. It’s not how you interact with other human beings socially. Labeling everyone who doesn’t want to “give up their whiteness” as a white supremacist strikes me as the rantings of a lunatic.

I feel some sympathy for Rao, but I also recognize this is completely of her own doing. Until she’s ready to actually think about her own flaws and the illogical insanity of her ideology, I don’t suspect her friends will be inviting her to Christmas anytime soon.

Unfortunately, there’s nothing in Rao’s thinking, nor the thinking of many on the far left that points to an awakening anytime soon. This kind of division in our culture is only going to get worse.
