The Trigger Warning on the left is for any Progressive snowflakes reading this post.
My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has a post up about the bozo who yelled, “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump” during the intermission at a performance of Fiddler on the Roof. The lout was a drunk Democrat.
UPDATE—Added a link to the Wikipedia article about Roy Roger’s horse for the young people who are unfamiliar with that part of our cultural heritage.
During a hearing about confirmation of a new Director for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Kamala Harris suggested equivalence between ICE and the Ku Klux Klan. Recent data shows that over half of all ICE agents are Hispanic/Latino, and I doubt that 51% of the members of the Klan have ever been black. There doesn’t appear to be much equivalence there. OTOH, given that a recent lawsuit implied that Allen West is a white supremacist, such patently silly claims do seem to resonate with the Democrats’ political base, and Harris does seem to be running for the party’s 2020 nomination.

And I really hate the way people keep misspelling Occasional Cortex. Get with the program people. Words exist for a reason. Pointing and laughing at “democratic socialists” is as good a reason as any!

SEEN ON FACEBOOK: “Jesus, NBC is still wallowing in the blood. The Borderline shooting is wall-to-wall, pictures of the shooter, his full name, teary next of kin of the victims. It’s like they want copycats.”
Well, of course! Back in the ’60s when I was working in broadcasting, the film crews (this was before portable video tape recorders) would get back with their evening reels, and decisions would have to be taken (choices are taken not made) about which film to develop first. Big car crashes or other disasters would always get processed ahead of the Metro Council meetings. NBC is sticking with an ancient form which has the advantage of also supporting their anti-Second-Amendment narrative.
My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has a post up titled Google SJWs Can’t Be Appeased. Of course, they can’t—certainly, not in the long run. Some of the things being sought by the employees in the recent walkout are antithetical to the company’s ongoing success as a business. Either the management says, “No,” to protect the company, or the management says, “Yes,” and eventually kills the golden goose that pays the protestors’ salaries. As Stacy sees it, the Google management and the protestors are at an impasse.
Nothing the (male) executives of Google can do will satisfy the company’s Social Justice Warriors, whose totalitarian ideology defines males — yes, all males — as oppressors who must be destroyed. The specific grievances cited by SJWs are just a means to an end for the walkout organizers, whose real aim is the dismissal of the company’s management, and their replacement by an all-female management team.
The men who run Google and other Silicon Valley giants will discover that feminists are not interested in any “reform” agenda. This isn’t something that changes to workplace policy can fix. Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, and the targets of destruction — men like @SundarPichai — had better wake up.
