  1. Maybe it will be better in the morning?

    These folks are one of the few producers of “funny” anymore, but this didn’t click for me. Way too didactic.

  4. The time lapse between Bee satire and realization is becoming shorter and shorter. During the 2020 Acceleration it was sometimes only a few months. At this stage, striving Diversity Inc. comissars are probably following the Bee for new battleground ideas.

  5. One of these things is not like the others
    One of these things just doesn’t belong
    Can you tell which thing is not like the others
    By the time I finish my song?

    Did you guess which thing was not like the others?
    Did you guess which thing just doesn’t belong?
    If you guessed THIS one is not like the others
    Then you’re absolutely…right!

    Twitter censors criticism of BLM founder’s $1.4 million home purchase
    Twitter is locking users out of their accounts.

    Twitter has censored those posting tweets criticizing Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors for purchasing a home worth over $1.4 million.

    Multiple Twitter users who posted the article from dirt.com showed Reclaim The Net evidence that their accounts had been locked for posting the article. Twitter said it was due to posting “private information.”

    Further, when Jason Whitlock, a sports journalist and BLM critic, joined in the criticism, his tweet was immediately censored, and what was left was the notice “This tweet is no longer available.”

    The only question I have is who are you going to punch first, Steve?

    Probably a good move for Sesame Street, now that Elmo is under a cloud:

    Skip to 1:00 to catch the contractor and the muppet…

  17. Hey Steve, signal boost to help save Officer Chauvin. Everybody knows that in a high profile criminal trial, having a snazzy rhyme to make your case is key to securing an acquittal. In this case it’s “Blame the fentanyl, not the sentinel.” Pls pass it on.

    Surprisingly, this post overlaps with Steve’s obsession with World War Hair:

    A Black Woman Styled The Hair For The First Black Muppets & Women Are Loving The Daddy

    I don’t have to tell you how important hair is to Black people.

    No, you certainly don’t. But I’m sure you will anyway.

    Thankfully, Sesame Street hired a talented Black hair stylist to create the hair for these characters.

    And that black hair stylist was certainly proud of her creation:

    BROOKLYN & TRINIDAD WE DID IT…AGAIN😝STOP PLAYIN WITH GODs CHILDREN!!!!!! We OUTCHEA!!!! YA GIRL IS ON THESE STREETS BABY!!! 🗣SESAME STREET!!!!!
    Either way you take it…This?
    Is LEGACY!!!!!!!!!!⭐

    And black fans were “outchea”, too:

    If I can’t marry a black kangz then I’d at least want to be with a black muppet

    I thought the ‘black kangz’ thing was a racist 4chan meme, I didn’t realize that they actually talked like that.

  21. OT, but I do not think Sailer has covered this yet.

    Some very strange accusations are being made against Professor Amy Chua at Yale.

    Here is her response.

    Hard to untangle this… but, I am inclened to believe Chus, based on my own daughter’s treatment by the UCLA Administration (in a nutshell, my daughter called the police when she was being viciously assaulted by a crazy roommate whom my duaghter was trying to escape: despite my daughter’s medically documented injuries and the roommate’s confessions to having committed multiple crimes against my daughter, UCLA has punished my daughter and let the assailant off scot-free) .

    As we all know, Chua and her husband have said some very un-PC things (e.g., that not all cultures are equal), so a motive for attacking her is more than plausible.

    Wasn’t there someone named Alissa in the news recently?

    > Off topic: Baltimore Stops Policing

    Maybe OT, but very iSteve-y.

    Baltimore City voters elected Marilyn Mosby as District Attorney in 2013, defeating (mostly) law ‘n order white incumbent Gregg Bernstein with 55% of the vote. That’s in the Democratic primary, general elections are window dressing. She took office just in time for the Freddie Gray riots, where she delivered on campaign promises of racialism and pro-community/anti-cop broken windows policing.

    Voters are happy with her performance (typical corruption allegations against her and her City Councilman husband included). She was comfortably re-elected in 2018.

    Pericles’ link “Baltimore Stops Policing” goes to the blog of Peter Moskos, a Criminal Justice prof at John Jay College. His work history includes time as a beat cop in Baltimore, which made him among the least ivory-tower of academics.

    Moskos’ post includes a picture of the one-page April 9th directive by the Operations Bureau. It notes that the DA refuses to prosecute certain charges. So city cops shouldn’t arrest people for: Drug possession, Dealing, Prostitution, Trespassing, Minor traffic violations, Open container, “Rogue & vagabond,” or p1issing/sh1tting in public.

    Last year, Mosby easily weathered a tiresome mini-scandal about failing to report tens of thousands of dollars in Soros-related dark money for junkets to here and there. One of the 2018 challengers provided this epitaph for her city:

    The citizens didn’t elect other people in the office. The citizens elected her.

    IMHO, these law school students and the admins should take the Prozac, drop a bottle of Bourbon and have a wank. They will feel better and more ready for life.

    We see this in every majority or heavily black city – blacks don’t really value lack of corruption in their officials nor do they like strict law enforcement. Usually corruption involves non-black people paying money to black officials – anything that brings money into the black community is seen as good. Blacks are entitled to seek reparations individually and collectively in any way that they can get them, whether by corruption or undocumented shopping or whatever.

    It’s a lot like what Steve said about Mexico a few days ago. Mexicans don’t want litter free cities or cities where you can’t have mariachis playing in the street late at night because they value their right to litter and to order mariachis for their happy occasions. You can’t have these things both ways – the same law that would prevent your neighbors from keeping you up all night with their mariachis prevents YOU from ordering up a band when it’s time for your birthday party.

    The best thing for white people to do in such cities is get completely out and let the blacks have the kind of city that they prefer. Or else be willing to tolerate a high level of crime and corruption, like that white woman who wants to live near the beach for cheap in Mexico – you get the good with the bad (although I’m not sure what the “good” parts of living in a majority black city consist of).

    However, it should be made clear that whites are also allowed to have their own cities where they are allowed to have things the way that whites prefer. If you are black and want to live in such a city (say Minneapolis, for example) then it should be understood that you have to follow white people rules. The essence of democracy is that a majority of the people set the rules and then everyone else has to follow the rules imposed by the majority, like it or not. Don’t like it – move to Detroit and then you can live under black people rules.

    BTW, the most shocking item on the lists of crimes that are not crimes anymore is “attempted distribution of CDS” – in other words drug dealing. The others can more or less be excused as “victimless crimes” or truly minor offenses. But standing on the street corner and hawking fentanyl is no longer an arrestable offense in Baltimore.

    Note that the letter instructs the cops to just let the offenders go and then write up an incident report which will get filed and never looked at again (but which keeps the cop off the street some more while he is doing paperwork). It doesn’t even say to give the drug dealers or other offenders a ticket – they are completely free to go.

  28. @The Alarmist

    Haha, yeah, Todd’s hair is suspiciously light—almost as though he bleaches it.

    The last year has been great for teachers. No more getting up early and having to shower and do your hair and makeup and get dressed up and brave the traffic jams on the way to work. You just roll out of bed and do a few Zooms in the sweats that you slept in while collecting your full salary.

    Those pesky parents keeping asking for the schools to open so that they can get free child care but f’em. It’s NEVER going to be safe to go back to school. Even if you vaccinate everyone, there are new variants. The only safe thing is for school to be remote from now on. In person teaching is going to be a thing of the past like doctors making housecalls. Homeschooling was evil but remote schooling is good. The difference is that no teacher got paid for homeschooling. The teachers union is backing them up on this.

    Not quite true.

    Although you pull out say 50 kids and they are Home Schooled, the district still has to keep a seat for them.
    Home Schoolers get zero tax relief, and it must be tax Exemption, not a voucher that returns tax money.

    With the voucher, as they say, with the shekels come the shackles.

    When you Home School you can tailor the education to the child’s interests and what the child will be doing after high school.

    Also, doing book reports on books that are relevant to the child’s interest.

    Don’t want your child memorizing a crock of lies? Pick something else.

    When enough get their fil of the public screwal system and pull out, then things will change.

    So Tiger Mom is in the dog house now.

    I am 100% sure Tiger Dad is innocent. If he weren’t, Tiger Mom would have eaten him alive by now.

  33. @JohnnyWalker123

    So I guess referring to Cullors and Khan as “Old Ladies of the Year” is beyond the pale.

  34. I was momentarily worried this was gonna be real.

  35. @JohnnyWalker123

    Bet that home is not in a black populated area.

    JFC, he’s WRONG on that issue.
