The Morning Report — 4/24/23


Good morning, kids. Well, you'll be relieved to know that SEAL Team 6 has evacuated embassy staff and relatives in Sudan as that shit hole descends into civil war and chaos (when has Sudan not been in civil war and chaos?). Meanwhile, thousands of ordinary Americans, who I assume are aid workers and such-like, are stranded in country with no hope of escape.

Sound familiar? Well, of course, Afghanistan, where Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants' handlers decided to just bug out and turn 20-odd years of foreign policy failure into an instantaneous foreign policy disaster. But I also mean Democrat-dominated cities and states where roving gangs of thugs and criminals are free to rape, rob, loot and pillage because, racism or something – in effect turning nearly 60 years of Democrat-Leftist domestic policy failure into near instantaneous domestic policy disaster.

Case in point for today is the place known as Charm City.

All that’s left of the mall is a Hooters restaurant. Baltimore Brew’s pictures show almost every other store has moved out.

That’s the question before Mayor Brandon Scott and other city leaders, who yesterday gave Harborplace’s new owner, MCB Real Estate, three years to figure out a plan.

“The entire downtown area is effectively dead,” one person said who commented on Baltimore Brew’s article. They pointed out:

“Who in their right mind would want to risk coming downtown when the news out of Baltimore is all about shootings, carjackings, mugging, and out-of-control packs of teenagers milling about on a semi-regular basis?”

Democrats and progressive leadership in the city have done a wonderful job of taking something nice and destroying it with terrible policy. The consequence is an exodus of businesses, and it’s not just a Baltimore problem. Metro areas with progressive leadership, like Chicago, San Francisco, and Portland, are finding businesses are leaving in droves. 

Baltimore has Brandon Scott and now Chicago has this Brandon Johnson, and the nation formerly known as the United States of America has Brandon you-know-who. It's Brandon's all the way down, people.

Meanwhile, as he's got his hands full fighting white supremacists and climate change while snapping training bras and stuffing his face with Ben and Jerry's Rachel Corrie Crunch, maybe the Americans stranded in Sudan should think twice about wanting to be rescued from a nation devolving into civil war and genocide and returning to a nation devolving into civil war and genocide.

An autistic Jewish teen had a swastika carved on his back in a heartless anti-Semitic assault at his Las Vegas high school — with the FBI now prepared to jump into the unsolved case.

The teen’s distraught mother alerted authorities after her 17-year-old nonverbal son returned home from Clark High School on March 9 with the hate symbol etched on his back, NBC News reported Saturday.

The mom, who said her son’s service dog equipment bag was also tampered with, has pulled her son from the school.

But because the school doesn’t have surveillance cameras in classrooms, locker rooms and bathrooms, the cruel culprits remain unnamed — and unpunished. . .

. . . Meanwhile, with the case unsolved nearly two months later, the FBI said it was ready to join the probe.

“We are aware of the incident and are in regular contact with local authorities,” the agency said in a statement. “If during the local investigation, information comes to light of a potential federal civil rights violation, the FBI is prepared to investigate.”

Oh, thank goodness! The FBI is on the case! That means another raid on Mar-a-Lago, or Matt Taibbi's home, or Mark Houck I guess.

Meanwhile, in another part of the forest. . .

A Utah state Republican lawmaker’s home was allegedly vandalized after he introduced a bill aiming to ban transgender surgeries on minors.

The message to State Sen. Mike Kennedy written in red spray-paint on his door read, “Fash” (abbreviation for Fascist) and “These trannies bash back.” Kennedy announced the vandalism on Facebook.

“To those who seek to use violence, vandalism, and intimidation to deter me from standing up for what is right, let me be clear: you will not succeed,” he said in his post. “I will not be deterred by your cowardly actions. The recent vandalism to my family’s home was not just an attack on me, but on the very principles our state stands for. We will not let fear and violence control our destiny.”

Kennedy called on the citizens of Utah to “stand up and push back against radicals who seek to push their agenda in our state.”

“I am more determined than ever to work with the good people of Utah to make our state a better place for all, especially our children, and I won’t back down,” he concluded.

Waiting for MSLSD, CNN and The New York Times to bemoan our descent into violence and of course blame Mike Kennedy. Not a peep from anyone named Brandon about this. In fact, there are a whole lot of Brandons out there inciting this.

Everyone knows the media reports differently on crime depending on the identity of the victims and the perpetrator.  But the selective prosecution of perpetrators is even more troublesome. Despite the lavish attention the FBI and the Justice Department spends on “hate crimes,” the Justice Department does not seem interested in protecting people victimized because of their Christian faith. 

From January 2018 to September 2022, the Family Research Council identified 420 hostile acts against U.S. churches including vandalism, gun attacks, and arson. A Catholic advocacy group reports “at least 309 attacks against Catholic churches in the United States” with no arrests in all but 25 percent of the cases. And the FBI has apparently failed to arrest any suspect for anti-Christain attacks following the Supreme Court’s decision last year to overturn Roe v. Wade. There’s a sense that it’s open season on any target of leftist prejudice.

Indeed, it’s become quite popular to label those who resist or complain about race-based politics and anti-Christian rhetoric as “fascist” or “semi-fascist.” The label plays an indispensable role in the very successful libel campaign against Christians, conservatives, and people with European features. It’s a loosely defined group on which one may permissibly project blame for every social ill. Poverty, crime, pollution—it matters not. A public official can always deflect attention from his own failings by projecting blame on the “oppressors.” The process of demonizing and marginalizing a target group can take decades. Like the first few kernels of popcorn, the early violence seems random and unconnected. But once normalized, the violence moves too quickly to stop. . .

. . . American schools rarely teach about the demagoguery that paves the way for genocide. Out of such ignorance, leftist mobs whip themselves up into a frenzy of “antifascist” fervor without bothering to examine whether their own social justice movement might be spinning towards something very dark.

Leftists fantasize that they would have had the courage of Paul Rusesabagina, the hotel operator who risked his life during the 1994 Rwandan genocide in order to protect targeted Tutsis. They fantasize they would have risked everything like Oscar Schindler. Preventing the next Hitler or Rwanda-style genocide, we’re so often told, begins with social justice. Look around, they tell us, and you will awaken to the reality that, “racism is a causal factor in the social and economic outcomes . . .” And those who have awakened to this reality sometimes adopt the slang corruption of the verb “woke.”  

Not so fast. Every genocide, including Rwanda, began with a kind of “awokening.” Every genocide begins as a social or economic justice movement seeking to redress a historical grievance narrative. . .

. . . It’s easy to sit in a movie theater and fantasize about how one would have resisted now-extinct Nazis. But in the lead-up to a genocide, one does not have the benefit of hindsight. In the moment, cruelty seems justified. It’s not bigotry if the race or group you’re taught to hate struck the first blow. No genocide ever succeeded without first convincing collaborators that the target group had it coming . . .

. . . As you read this, you might feel a little uncomfortable with a comparison between the fashionable bigotry of present-day America with genocide-enabling demagoguery of the past. Indeed, there’s been enough casual bigotry within American universities and government that most of the victims have internalized the propaganda into shame. This is why you see so many whites apologize over and over again for being white. 

Indoctrinators posing as “diversity” trainers have fanned out across business and government to lead discussion sessions shaming employees for their skin color. In one example that came to light in 2021, Coca-Cola forced its employees to sit through training that encouraged its staff to be “less white,” by which it meant, “less ignorant,” and “less oppressive.” The U.S. Military Academy at West Point now offers instruction to soldiers on “understanding whiteness and White rage.” Yes, our government trains our own soldiers to believe that their countrymen with European features are infected with dangerous rage. These are racial stereotypes used to justify official action. It’s a sign of the madness of any social justice movement when its adherents seek to make race discrimination and racial stereotyping seem normal and just.

Now you understand (as if you didn't) why Kamala Harris refused to visit the families of the victims slaughtered by the Leftist-inspired/incited transexual terrorist in Nashville and instead came to heap praise and admiration on the scum lawmakers who took over the state house and attempted to foment an insurrection. Go back and listen to – if you can stomach it – or read the transcript of Brandon's speech in front of Independence Hall last Labor Day.

Suddenly, Sudan doesn't seem all that bad an alternative.
