American Pravda

By Patrick Van Roy On April 1st, 2021 at 3:23 pm

The libertine left and its publicists in the “objective media” have a funny way of writing their lobbying campaigns against troubling traditions such as the “gender binary.” It goes like this:

1. Push the revolution from the fringes by testing the supposedly outdated cultural boundaries — say, the idea of putting trans girls in girls’ sports.

2. Define the conservative reaction as a “culture war” — as if the left didn’t start the fight.

A case in point was a March 30 front-page New York Times article by Jeremy W. Peters headlined “Transgender Girls in Sports Are New G.O.P. Culture War.” Peters writes like a gay rights activist, because he is one. In 2008, Out magazine featured Peters, then based in Albany for The Times, in its “Our Boys on the Bus” piece and touted him as a “rising star” in the national media elite.

In the liberal media, gay reporters write on LGBT activists; black reporters write on blacks; Asians write on Asians; and so on. Orthodox Christian reporters report on … wait, don’t be silly! There are no orthodox Christian reporters at The New York Times!

Peters used the word “conservative” 11 times and variants of “the right” three times. Conservatives were the ones who “restrict rights for transgender people,” as they stand on “one of their last footholds in the fight against expanding L.G.B.T.Q. rights.” They push laws that “single out transgender people for exclusion and feed ugly stereotypes.” Conservative culture “often reduces the nuanced issue of gender identity to a punchline about political correctness.”

We’re told the right wing wants to “bar transgender girls and women from participating in sports leagues,” but The Times is missing a word in that sentence — “bar transgender women from girls’ sports leagues.” No one’s saying an athlete born male can’t compete in sports. But having trans women compete with other males would apparently “feed ugly stereotypes.”

HOW GOES THE EU VACCINATION DRIVE?

France and Germany held discussions with Russian President Vladimir Putin last night to supply doses of the country’s Sputnik Covid vaccine as suspicions over the Astrazeneca jab continue to proliferate across the continent.

That great, eh? The EU was the future, once. Now its leading lights are bending over, ready to receive Putin’s bin juice.

CHINA AGAIN

By Pete Moore On March 31st, 2021 at 6:55 pm

The BBC’s Beijing correspondent John Sudworth has left China and moved to Taiwan following pressure and threats from the Chinese authorities.

Sudworth, who has won awards for his reporting on the treatment of the Uyghur people in the Xinjiang region, left Beijing with his family.

The BBC says it is proud of his reporting and he remains its China correspondent.

China has denounced the BBC’s coverage of Xinjiang.

It’s time we recognised the independent republic of Taiwan, with full diplomatic relations and the rights and responsibilities of all independent, globally recognised nations. We all know it.

We also all know that the only reasonable relations with China are none whatsoever while it’s led by the most evil regime on the planet.

The jaded, cynical view that we must have civilised relation with China is the wrong one.

The Sad Shape of NYC

By Patrick Van Roy On March 31st, 2021 at 4:40 pm

I pick on NYC, but I have a lot of Family there and I actually do love the City. NYC and it’s greater Metro area however has a very deep streak of Lunacy that runs through it, here are 2 examples. A Representative that THEY picked, and one of it’s loving liberal citizens.

This is the sad state of NYC in todays America.

Integrity……

President Joe Biden has chosen former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice to direct hundreds of federal departments to expand mail-in voting, a key for Biden’s win in 2020.

Earlier this month, Biden signed an executive order that puts Rice, who now serves as assistant to the president for domestic policy, in charge of developing ways to expand voting registration procedures. Under the order, federal agencies need to inform Rice of “a strategic plan outlining the ways identified under this review that the agency can promote voter registration and voter participation” within 200 days.

GOVERNMENTS: “CHINA LIED”

By Pete Moore On March 30th, 2021 at 9:00 pm

Statement on the origins of coronavirus from the governments of Australia, Canada, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Israel, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Republic of Korea, Slovenia, United Kingdom, and United States.

(“Czechia”? When did we start using that?)

A short statement follows, which notes that “we support a transparent and independent analysis and evaluation, free from interference and undue influence”, that “we join in expressing shared concerns regarding the recent WHO-convened study in China”, and that “going forward, there must now be a renewed commitment by WHO and all Member States to access, transparency, and timeliness”.

It diplomatically calls the WHO useless and the Communist Party of China liars.

We knew that, so what is the civilised world going to do about it?

I ALREADY HATE THE FUTURE

By Pete Moore On March 30th, 2021 at 6:57 pm

Isn’t it awful?

No wood, no leather, no chrome, Just soulless, plasticky, touch-screeny sleekness, designed no doubt by someone who wouldn’t know a V8 if it landed on his head. Yeah it’ll keep you hyper-connected to the mental asylum which is the social media world, but who wants that? Driving is supposed to get you away from all that. Give me knobs, dials and a loud pedal under my right foot anyday.

And a manual gearbox. An automatic is for people who can’t drive.

THEY CARE ABOUT RAPE, NOW

By Pete Moore On March 30th, 2021 at 6:34 pm

How endemic is sexual assault in UK schools?

One of the country’s most senior police officers has said he believes that institutions have covered up sexual offences to protect their reputations, as a task force took charge of a surge in abuse complaints

The press, police and politicians are consumed, this week, by reports of a rape epidemic in schools. That’s strange, because none of them were interested when thousands and thousands of girls were groomed, tortured and raped by muslims. If you stick your head out you can hear them guffawing across Rotherham, Rochdale, Luton, Bradford …

The one thing we can be certain of here is that the talking heads assume their aren’t many muslims involved.

March 30, 1870

By Patrick Van Roy On March 30th, 2021 at 2:47 pm

Following a difficult ratification, the US Constitution’s 15th Amendment is adopted, formally granting all adult Black men, regardless of ‘previous condition of servitude,’ the right to vote. By the late 1870s, southern states will nevertheless take various steps to disenfranchise Black voters. It will take another 50 years for American women, of any race, to win the right to vote.
