Tower of Babble

Grenfell Tower, London, UK

Conservative MP Daniel Hannan has some bracing and true words about the recent tragedy — the Grenfell Tower fire this past week. As in the UK so in the States when it comes to exploitation and manipulation of the victims, public, and their emotions. From CapX:

Blowing Out The Light

The latest from Michael Ramirez. Get it straight, lefties: we protect free speech first, then we talk about your feelings, got it?

Freedom Thrown Under The Bus

Oh, you thought fascism was dead in Spain? Au contraire!

Madrid authorities say they have impounded an orange-and-white bus used by a group campaigning to outlaw children changing their gender.

5 YouTubers You Should Be Watching Right Now

So, a YouTuber recently hijacked a veteran’s film event at the Sundance Film Festival to make a gay statement/spectacle of himself, and then screamed homophobia when he was thrown out.

Bananas Foster... Immorality

I predict China will see an uptick in the sales of plantains and corn dogs. From the BBC:

New regulations mean that live-streaming sites must monitor all their output round-the-clock to ensure nothing untoward is going on, keeping an eye out for any “erotic” banana-eating, according to New Express Daily. It’s not just fruit […]

Wake Me When October Ends

With my headspace now firmly locked in a Rubio ’20 mode, at which point I hope this year’s formerly best chance to instill genuine hope and re-spark American exceptionalism en route to defeating whichever socialist the Democrats foist upon America learns from his 2015/16 campaign mistakes.
