Liberal protesters set up a 30-foot tall inflatable chicken on the mall in front of the White House. Must have cost a bundle to create this balloon. Trump supporters joyfully appropriated the image for their own memes. Don’t neglect to click on the links.

The conservative folks on the right side of the political spectrum are getting a little fed up with the social justice warriors out there. Tired of competitive victimhood. There are some serious problems in the world, and the left just doesn’t want to discuss them, let alone deal with them.

North Korea is threatening the United States with nuclear weapons. China is building artificial islands in the South China Sea for military installations. ISIS just nearly blew up an airliner heading into Australia. Venezuela is nearing a revolution and its people are starving. More terrorist attacks throughout Europe and boatloads of migrants are streaming into Italy and Spain—those who don’t drown in the attempt. So it’s kind of nice to see the Right gently pointing out the stupidity, and the attempts to destroy free speech.

Right-wing street artist Sabo posted this anti-Google advertisement outside the Google offices in Los Angeles following the firing of former Google engineer James Damore.

On January 12, 2017, the New York Times editorial board claimed that “the grim truth is that concealed-carry permit holders are rarely involved in stopping crime.” That same day a concealed carry permit holder in Arizona used his gun to save the life of a state trooper who was under attack on I-10.Florida State University criminologist Gary Kleck’s research shows that the minimum number of defensive gun uses are around 760,000 annually.

Brand new Senator Kamala Harris is calling for more gun control, interestingly enough at the same time that ISIS is giving up on guns and telling their adherents to attack with knives—which has hugely increased stabbing attacks in London and in Europe, and to drive vehicles into crowds to kill the most people possible. Nuclear Weapon Protesters are calling for the “Total Abolition of Weapons”,  but the knives used in stabbing attacks seem to be ordinary kitchen knives for the most part.

Denmark’s second largest city is attempting to tackle terrorism by offering jihadists “empathy” in a programme dubbed “hug a terrorist”.

Whilst Danes who have fought against Islamic State have been threatened with jail on their return from Syria, terrorists are being offered enormous privileges, including apartments, education, and jobs, to encourage them to rejoin society.

Proponents of the police-run scheme in Aarhus say that jihadists are “isolated” and struggling to integrate, and claim that offering them kindness and forgiveness will deter them from their murderous ideology.

Tackling terrorism by assuming that jihadists are victims of a cruel world does seem to be missing the point, but when you look at things seriously the absurdity becomes fairly clear. California wants to secede  from the union, apparently with no historical knowledge of the South’s attempt to secede and the ensuing disastrous bloody war.

Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, had no idea what he was opening up by firing a Google engineer for offering a perfectly reasonable criticism of Google’s social justice policies. Didn’t take long for Amazon to start carrying the tee shirt.
