Nouns aren’t actable

Chickens find home to roost – rights from God versus human sin – symbols and slogans cur deep – Sharyl needs your help – teachers show the contempt of their ilk.

Sowing Winds and Reaping Whirlwinds. Victor Davis Hanson — “The Left is being consumed by its own hatreds and hubris.” … “there were reasons why Socrates advised “Know thyself,” why the oracle at Delphi emblemized “Nothing too much”—and why you reap what you sow.”

In Strine-Accented Newspeak, Freedom Means Submission. Peter Smith — “Our freedoms to speak freely, to assemble, to travel, to engage in the ordinary business of life are God-given, I’ve written. So they are, but rulers and governments can take them away, as they have throughout most of history. The people of Hong Kong are feeling it now, as are the women in Afghanistan, as did the East Germans before the wall came down, as did dissenters in revolutionary France.”

You’ll never believe the latest evidence of an ‘insurrection’. Andrea Widburg — “On December 24, Biden gave America the gift of self-denunciation.” … “Here’s the prank, which was polite and, to a lot of people, bespeaks frustration with rising inflation, a failed COVID policy, insane energy prices, and (still) the fiasco of Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal”

I honestly don’t know how this madness ends.  The drive-by media will do anything to enshrine the Democrat party in permanent power, and if this means turning anyone who opposes the political agenda into an enemy of the state who must be placed in a gulag like the prison in which the January 6 detainees languish, so be it.  As good little communists, they will do whatever it takes, unconstrained either by moral decency or a little thing called the Constitution.

‘Let’s go, Brandon’ is much more than a cheesy nickname for Biden. Christopher Garbacz — “Why is the slogan so powerful?  Partly, it’s powerful, as noted above, because it’s a reaction to Biden’s “central government gone wild,” with all the inevitable terrible results.  The other reason is that it’s slipped lose from Democrat control over American institutions.  Hollywood, the media, and the political class — all leftist dominated — can’t stop it.”

Sharyl Attkisson needs your help to nail the federal government for spying on her computer. Thomas Lifson — “Her landmark lawsuit against the federal government for spying on her computer entered a new, vitally important, and expensive phase: discovery, in which she can demand and the court can enforce access to documents and other evidence held in the files of the federal government.” … “Pushing forward to identify the culprits and holding them legally liable is an important goal for those who wish the preserve the Republic as founded.” Lifson has a Go-Fund-Me link.

Teacher Mocks Parents as Bigots at School Board Meeting for Objecting to CRT and Adult Content in Books. Mike LaChance — ““These kooks hated reading, the whole reading season./ Please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason./ It could be perhaps critical thinking causes fright./ It could be their heads aren’t screwed on just right.” — “Progressives are kicking a hornets’ nest by provoking parents. None of this will be forgotten in the midterms.”

I Woke Lucy. Lou Aguilar [cripppled site – see Instapundit] — “At least Aaron Sorkin isn’t Steven Spielberg.” … “It’s heartbreaking and a little chilling to see members of the artistic community resegregating ourselves,” Sorkin said. “This should be the last place there are walls. Spanish and Cuban are not actable. If I was directing you in a scene and said: ‘It’s cold, you can’t feel your face.’ That’s actable. But if I said: ‘Be Cuban.’ That is not actable. Nouns aren’t actable. Gay and straight aren’t actable. You can act being attracted to someone but can’t act gay or straight. So this notion that only gay actors should play gay characters? That only a Cuban actor should play Desi? Honestly, I think it’s the mother of all empty gestures and a bad idea.” Categorize issues by actable and see where it goes.
