Here's some stuff that has come up since we last spoke.

● Jussie Smollett has been charged with filing a false police report. He faces a possible three year sentence and a $25,000 crime. Even more importantly though, I think this blows the biggest hole in the victim industry since police started wearing body cams. I honestly think we are watching the imploding of the left's strongest tactic: the ability to keep their gullible supporters in fear with a steady stream of claims about police hunting black people, about straight white males dragging gays behind their trucks, and about college boys raping coeds at will.

Indeed, not only has a total lack of evidence made these claims laughable, but a number of now provable false claims by alleged victims have discredited the whole industry. Just as bad, the smears that the left has retreated to, such as comments on tip lines on receipts... videos of little old ladies yelling about deporting foreigners... and forty year old pictures of Democrats in blackface, show just how little real "-ism" there is to worry about.

● It turns out that the marijuana industry is racist. //snicker snicker All the (legal) profits are going to white men and Democrats are starting to notice (illegal profits go to Mexico). What's more, despite pot slowly becoming legal everywhere, it turns out that the illegal cartels and gangs have not gone away as promised. If anything, they've become more powerful and places like California are wanting to crack down. Irony at work.

● Kamala Harris keep stepping on her own... uh, short hairs. Not only has she needed to back off on eliminating private health insurance (the issue she planned to run on), but now we know that as a prosecutor she put lots of young black men in jail for pot possession. Tsk tsk. And now she's smeared Jamaica, causing her own father to complain angrily about her using an anti-Jamaican stereotype.

● There seems to be an anti-gay war starting within the Catholic church. This could be interesting. We'll see. I've always found it interesting how the church's sex scandal could involve hundreds of male priests and lots of little boys (and almost no girls) and yet the idea that this was connected to homosexuality never came up. Now it seems to be coming up. Not sure where this will go yet, or where it will end.

● Karl Lagerfeld died and I truly do not care. But after lots of tributes, the angry left has started attacking him. Apparently, they've noticed that he acted like every other member of the fashion industry. For shame!

I was wondering when you'd comment about Smollett. You certainly called that one. It's kind of amusing watching the media switch their coverage. I would love to know what's going through Robin Roberts' mind.

Maybe not so odd that homosexuality never came up. The Catholic church has been involved in the cover up of many scandals over its history (the abuse and deaths of Native children at Indian Schools for example). And now I read that the current meeting at the Vatican also includes (proven) children of priests who've been denied by their fathers and nuns who have been sexually abused by priests. They took one line of scripture, when Paul said it was better to remain unmarried and built a religion on it. Too bad they ignored the part where Paul said it was better if you were able to do it, but that if you were tempted to sin you should marry. The Catholic church has historically thrived on the doctrines of men rather than what was actually given by God in the Bible.

Stacy, The Smollett stuff has been fascinating. It was so obvious that something was wrong with his story and yet the left jumped on it to continue the narrative that we're all a bunch of racists. And then it all started to go wrong until it reached this point. And now they're confused and angry that they were blinded by their twisted desire for this to be true.

The Catholic church is definitely a mess. When you look at their history, they were involved in so many bizarre and bad things. I still can't get over the idea of indulgences... buying the right to sin?? How would Jesus feel about that?

I do like the church in principle, but it has issues. And I think their inability to get their hands around this sex abuse issue shows that they aren't really functioning either as a religious body or as a modern organization. And I do agree about the doctrines of men rather than the Bible.

Andrew, I have seen concerted messaging by LGBT organizations to dispel any link between pedophilia and homosexuality. I've seen such messaging in direct response to the Catholic Church scandals.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, I remember in the 1980s, they found that around 10% of child molesters were homosexuals. The homosexual lobby responded by pointing to the Kinsey study, which wrongly claimed that 10% of the public is gay, and they said, "See, it's in line with the percentage of gays in the population."

But Kinsey was wrong. The real percentage is around 3%. So child molesters are gay 300% of the time more than they should be if it was evenly distrubuted. But since the leftist media would never reject Kinsey (who justified perversion as normal), they accepted this and attacked anyone who said otherwise.

During the Catholic scandal, there was almost no mention of the fact that all of these pedophiles were molesting boys.

The Boy Scouts have had the same issue. The media was quick to blame the organization, but never once seemed to grasp that the Scout Masters involved were homosexual. They tried to treat it as "fathers," but it wasn't.

I'm not sure what the connection is between gays and child molestation or if this is just a factor of targets of opportunity attracting pedophiles, but it is not something that should be ignored. It wouldn't be ignored if it was "white people" or "conservatives" or "hunters."

The Church got rid of indulgences 500 years ago...however, like any institution they can be strange. I'm speaking as a lifelong Catholic. My mother's first husband left her in 1939 when she was pregnant with my sister. The priest in that parish blamed my mom and it turned her off to the Church forever. I really do believe most pedophiles are homosexuals, because boys in general are a softer target than little girls. It's just part of our society that little girls are watched more closely. A young man who was one of my scouts years ago, but left my troop because he wouldn't follow the rules was recently arrested for having sexual relations with a 15 year old boy. He was a deputy sheriff, the boy was the sheriff's son and they were fooling around in the police car...he's going to prison. His dumbass mother is running around telling everyone he's not gay, except his whole high school class knows he is...him being a pedophile doesn't seem to bother her.

Relative to Smollett, I agree claims of real hate crimes against the favored victim groups is greatly over-stated, but never underestimate the gullibility of young leftists to be led by the nose. Their default setting: even if this one happened to be false, we can’t let down our guard. The one thing I saw was that pissed me off worst was that this guy apparently states Kavanaugh did not deserve presumption of innocence then got pissed when folks doubted him. I am also glad to hear any problems Kamala Harris is having. I still feel she can draw a lot of “victims” once the wagons are circled. She can be the first full black and a female to go on Mt. Rushmore (Hillary so wanted it to be her)

The Jussie Smollett case was silly. Like I said, activist victim, light damages and a symbolic calling card usually add up to a lie. Lots of violent nutjobs floating around on both sides of the spectrum though.

When a racist wants to make a statement, they tend to do so with dead bodies. Also, such people tend to shoot high (huge celebs) or low (randoms they come across on the street) so a low level celeb claiming two racists had attacked him symbolically made little sense.

Recently a racist who murdered a guy in the hopes of starting a race war (the victim wasn't a celeb, so no much coverage) was convicted and of course there was a Putin loving white supremacist member of the Coast Guard who had been planning mass murder but who was grabbed up before he started dropping bodies.

So I expect the Smollet revelations to change nothing. When a president perceived as hostile is in office, the fringe clings to victimization. It happened under Obama, it is happening under Trump, it will probably happen under the next president.

Jackson, 30, who was raised in Towson and lived in Hampden, admitted that he had plunged a sword into Caughman’s back as the man stood in Times Square only because the victim was black.
He later told police it was a practice killing for further planned assaults on black people.

Officials also said they found a list of politicians and journalists Hasson intended to kill.
The list allegedly includes Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) were allegedly listed as “poca warren” and “Sen blumen jew,” respectively, according to court documents.
