Due to a family trip, for the rest of this week there won't be any posts, unless I just CAN'T STAND IT... the stupidity, that is. It's a matter of time, not a lack of new topics for posts, as usual. (I've got the images saved already for 10 of them or so.) Stupidity stops for no man! Anyway, a few days break will be good, and I'll have so new posts pop up in mind, but I think I won't promise that anything new will be up till next Monday.

In the meantime, if you appreciate the entertainment here, there are 1560 posts on the site (including this one), and I doubt anyone has been following since late November of '16, or has gone back to read them all. If you take exception to that, PLEASE write in.

I am very glad to have had the many comments lately and slowly increasing readership during the Spring at least. Interestingly, the number of views went way up for a few days, each time I included links on the unz site to Part 4 of our "re-Panic" series ... along with a warning to the reader that this post has girly pictures, or it is "not safe for work". The numbers were doubled for a couple of days after I put the link in a Fred Reed post. That goes to show he gets a LOT of readers, or the horniest readers, or both. Nah, I wrote "interestingly" above, but "expectedly" works too, as we all know how we men are.

I don't think the commenting system is good enough for me to just advertise "Open Thread". However, feel free to write in on anything. You all know I haven't minded any digressions, though they've been few. I mean anything, other than viagra ads. Feel free to discuss viagra ads or viagra itself, for that matter, as we put the kibosh on those bots long ago (easier than I thought, but I sure don't want to jinx it ).

Again, thanks to all the readers, and the commenters more so! More next week.

The parable of The Good Samaritan

It's only a parable, after all ...

An anonymous commenter on an iSteve thread embedded in this 2 minute sketch that could have been one of the best of Monty Python. The English accents are very much the same, to me, at least. The actors are different, so I had to look this one up.

This sketch if from the British show That Mitchell and Webb Look*. It was only on TV from '06 until '10. If youtube has more sketches or full episodes (which are just made of sketches anyway), I will be entertained for days.

I'm amazed this is from only a decade ago, as this one makes fun of the Political Correctness, and it's Jesus pushing the race realism here. Uh, oh, maybe that was the agenda, to imply something or other... I won't take it that way though. For something not at all completely different from Monty Python, here is one of the most hilarious videos I've seen in quite a while:

You know, because of that ending, I feel obligated to give some equal time to Monty Python, as this "he's making it up as he goes along" bit from The Life of Brian is equally hilarious. This clip may have appeared on Peak Stupidity already, and it's likely to appear again.

* That's the Wiki page. The IMDB site has this page.

Scenes from the Kung Flu Summer re-Panic - Part 8

(L) You gotta purty mouth.. I think. / (R) Buy Now! Social Distancing Guaranteed!

It's been again just over a week, as this Kung Flu, Season 2 is no fast-acting panic like the Black Plague times. It's slow enough to last all year, but fast enough to keep most ... zzzz .. people's attentions.

Pretty near to home today, I saw an older couple out on their front yard near the road with a "Home Made Designer Face Masks" sign. They had a whole rack of colorful stuff out there, something that would turn a few heads of young men, I imagine as instinct kicks in, even at 45 mph, and they think those are bikinis out of the corner of their eyes. I know, nobody is in them, but you remember when your imagination would fill in something there... There were no young women models like the lass above. (LEFT! Careful, or you'll burn an eye out!) It was just the two of them with no face masks on.

On the way home, I slowed down and asked how business was. OK, I think was the reply, but they didn't sound too enthused. I wasn't trying to start an argument, but I just couldn't help telling them "you'll never find me in one of those face diapers." (That's not strictly true, as I've written, so that's why I felt bad about it. There wasn't time to get into a discussion.) Good luck to them, I guess. It's better buying local than buying Cheap crap imported by 3-M from China.

Right around this spot, there were two college-age blond girls walking, not hot enough to require a neck-twist, but I still glanced as I drove by. With the windows down, I swear I heard only the following two words, and as part of a sentence mind you, not said separately: "... like totally ..." I heard it clearly, as they didn't have masks on either. Again, it wasn't a quick agreement "sentence", but right in the middle of a sentence. What's the odds of that with this generation, like 1 in 5 or something? I could like totally believe that.

Thanks for reading, PSers. Have a good weekend or what's left of it.

Sick Commie Fuck Michael Brune v John Muir - Part 2

Posted On: Friday - July 31st 2020 9:50PM MST
In Topics: 
  Lefty MegaStupidity  Political Correctness  Treehuggers  Environmental Stupidity  ctrl-left

(Continued from this post.)

Stupidity comes and stupidity goes, but for some reason nothing has pissed me off about stupid/evil fuckers lately more than this Sierra Club cancellation of naturalist John Muir.

In this corner, NATURALIST John Muir!:

Oh, come on! "Nature" is just a dog-whistle for stuff White people like. #WildernessTooRaciss!

John Muir was an instigator for, an activist, one might call him now, for the saving of millions of acres of beautiful wildlands for millions of Americans to enjoy. That was with the help of this guy, not my favorite President politically-speaking by any means, but a real tough guy and a man who also loved the land:

Bully for you, chilly for me ...

John Muir was a co-founder of the Sierra Club, with its 128 year history, most of that time working to save the wilderness, with its generous almost-all-white members who also enjoy the wilderness and money from White people all over America. But the problem is, he didn't have herd immunity ... to racism... or something...
And Muir was not immune to the racism peddled by many in the early conservation movement. He made derogatory comments about Black people and Indigenous peoples that drew on deeply harmful racist stereotypes, though his views evolved later in his life. As the most iconic figure in Sierra Club history, Muir’s words and actions carry an especially heavy weight. They continue to hurt and alienate Indigenous people and people of color who come into contact with the Sierra Club.
Well, yeah, there was that one darker-looking guy that came to the meeting back in November. He pretended to have never even heard of John Muir, so he was probably hurt about this. Then, the San Pedro chapter had that other foreign guy with the weird Science Officer Spock-like ears, and that guy seemed pretty alienated by our membership flyer... About these Indigenous members, Peak Stupidity may very well agree with a comment or two by John Muir, as we have wondered before Are American Indians slobs?

The whiteness and privilege of our early membership fed into a very dangerous idea -- one that’s still circulating today. It’s the idea that exploring, enjoying, and protecting the outdoors can be separated from human affairs. Such willful ignorance is what allows some people to shut their eyes to the reality that the wild places we love are also the ancestral homelands of Native peoples, forced off their lands in the decades or centuries before they became national parks. It allows them to overlook, too, the fact that only people insulated from systemic racism and brutality can afford to focus solely on preserving wilderness. Black communities, Indigenous communities, and communities of color continue to endure the traumatic burden of fighting for their right to a healthy environment while simultaneously fighting for freedom from discrimination and police violence.
I hope Mr. Brune will show his enthusiasm for this effort by resigning by end of the business week (conveniently, that's today, even in California!) and hand picking some indigenous mofo to run the place, when he's not busy with the traumatic burden of fighting for freedom from discrimination and police violence (cops are too hard on drunk Indians, I guess). Perhaps the new hire could work from home or from the rain forest to save on the long commutes in overcrowded California, to have extra time for all that fighting.
The persistence of this misguided idea is part of the reason why we still get comments from our own members telling us to “stay in our lane,” and stop talking about issues of race, equity, and privilege.
I couldn't have said it better myself. Stay in your lane, Brune! And I'm not even a member, and,

But as writer Julian Brave NoiseCat says, “The environment is no longer a white sanctuary. The messy business of society, power, and race is everywhere and intertwined.”
Julian Brave NoiseCat? Hey, man, I'm hip to your music, man, but can you cats turn that noise down? OK, seriously, this will indeed get messy. Yosemite will get messy. The Sequoia National Park already got messy from a 5-times deported Mexican illegal alien burning 44 square miles of old growth forest. Can't get no respect from these people for the wilderness, I tell ya, no respect.

The Sierra Club has got no choice though. They must get into the fast lane on the immigration issue, as they got told in no uncertain terms, 100 million of them, what is now the first rule of Sierra Club: YOU! DO! NOT! TALK! ABOUT! HOW! IMMIGRATION! AFFECTS! THE! ENVIRONMENT!

That above is what we hear from the Executive Director, no less, of the organization founded by the great naturalist John Muir. It doesn't sound too promising.

... and in this corner, environmental ACTIVIST, vist, vist, ... Michael Brune:

Per his Sierra Club bio, this guy is a family man, with 3 kids with names that sound whiter than "John Muir" by a long shot - Olivia, Sebastian, and Genevieve. They live in Alameda, California*, at 11% Hispanic (and 8% black), not the most diversified place in California by any means. Need more Calgon! Immigration! It's great for the planet and keeps your socks and underwear white.

Mr. Brune's biggest claim to fame, and it got him into Time magazine for it, was his Rainforest Action Network** convincing (in some way) the Home Depot chain to quit selling wood from old growth forest. Now, I don't know how this coercion actually went down, but at least that sort of thing is something one could definitely see as part of the Sierra Club's mission, in their lane, if I may. (Sure I may, it's my own blog. BTW, I'm not at all sure that John Muir would have approved, as this was wood from private lands, not National Park land. Men had principles back in the day. That Home Depot deal was all back in 1999, though. It's a different planet now.

Then, Mr. Brune became aware of Global Climate DisruptionTM due to his parents' basement being flooded during a big storm:
In October 2012, the need to solve the climate crisis was brought into sharp relief when "superstorm" Sandy ravaged the East Coast, including Brune’s hometown. The storm flooded his parents' home, which had been built by his father and uncle nearly fifty years before.
It was a SUPERSTORM, man, and it should be pretty obvious to anyone but a complete 'tard that when your basement gets flooded, the climate is changing. They never do that!
We will create a dialogue with, and resources for, our members about the intersection between racism and environmental justice issues, and invest in our HR and training capacities to ensure that staff, volunteers, and members are held accountable for any harm they inflict upon members of our Sierra Club community who identify as Black, Indigenous, or people of color. We will also spend the next year studying our history and determining which of our monuments need to be renamed or pulled down entirely.

In subsequent posts in this series, we'll talk in much more depth about the steps we’re taking to rebuild the Sierra Club on a basis of racial and social justice and to try to repair the harm we’ve caused. I know that the steps I’ve outlined above are only the beginnings of what will be a years-long process to reckon with our history, regain trust from the communities we have harmed, and create a diverse and equitable Sierra Club for the 21st century.
OK, so,


The result are not all in yet, at least for our assessment of the Commie Fuck Michael Brune***. I can see into the near future, though. With donations going down, the Sierra Club's best bet is to beg from the US Feral Government for money stolen rather than donated from Americans. (OK, you can call it donated if you want, if it makes you feel better next April 15th.) However, without white people running the chapters of this club, things will go downhill fast, no matter how much money they steal from us. Then, how is the Sierra Club going to get people of various colors out into the wilderness, via gunpoint? That's just not good optics, I don't care who you are.

We're heading out into the wilderness for daytime hiking pretty soon. It will be nice to get away from hearing anything from or about any of these anti-white Commie sons of bitches of the Sierra Club or any other organization for a while.

Just another photo of John Muir with Teddy Roosevelt, and others:

That's the "Grizzly Giant" tree, a Giant Sequoia still standing in the Mariposa Grove area of Yosemite Park. The volume of wood is 34,000 ft3.

Oh, the winner, I forgot because it was too easy, is John Muir. Mr. Muir beautified the lives of millions of Americans, while the hatred espoused by Michael Brune will make us more miserable in the future.

Winner: John Muir by a Giant Sequoia!

* On the island off of Oakland that used to have the big Navy base. I guess they closed it because the Global Climate DisruptionTM is fixin' to cause the waters to rise and ships can't ... wait ...

** It's non-PC title being the Jungle Agitators.

*** I just realized that I've seen this guy before in a debate on youtube (very likely Tucker Carlson). It was about the immigration issue, I believe, and this guy was a real ass on that clip too.

Lyin' Press on display - Portland, Oregon edition

  Media Stupidity  Anarcho-tyranny

As Peak Stupidity stated a week ago in our short mention of Feral Government intervention in the on-going rioting, in Tales from two pundits, we are not in favor of Federal intervention ... in pretty much ANYTHING. We'll have a post tomorrow with more discussion on the idea of the Country Sheriff as ultimate authority (well, after the US Constitution). For now, let me just say that I take for granted that Federal agents can be involved with criminal activity on Federal facilities and Federal land.

That intro. was just written to make sure the reader knows that my point in showing the video below is not about Feds vs. the City of Portland, OR, or whomever. No, the short excerpt of this > 11 minute-long video is to show the sheer unmitigated bias of the Lyin' Press these days. It is not lying by commission or lying by omission in this case. It's "lying by definition", if that's a term.

The Fed building seen has been graffitied-up like a 10-car freight train that spent a month in the rail yards of Detroit. The guy being interviewed, US Attorney Billy Williams, noted that the front door to the building has not been there since July 3rd*, so there's no doubt that there has been destruction.

Yet, the lady reporter from KGW TV, refuses to call this for what it is. Mr. Williams comes across very sensible. He just got tired of the reporter's continual use of "nighttime demonstrations", or worse yet, "nighttime activities" to describe what's clearly vandalism. It's about a minute in of what I include here (10:15 and then 10:35) in which the lady is just insistent on things like "I'm not a police officer so I can't...." meaning calling out vandalism as criminal activity. No, maybe that's modern art and is SUPPOSED to be there. (You know, those Federal programs for starving artists and all, on our tax money... I could believe it, actually, so ...)

These Lyin' Press people just won't give up any ground. The narrative comes first, terminology like the word "criminal activity", and God forbid, "rioting" be damned.

Oh, for just a little Kung Flu angle here, if you replay this from the start, you can see Mr. Williams take off his hospital-style face mask in the first few seconds. That's what I've been saying - nobody can understand all you say with one of these on. At the end, I believe that is the KGM reporter, and she has a mask on. Did she put it on at the end for walking in front of the cameras? Her stupidity comes out just too clearly to have come through a mask. Those masks not only block the COVID meanies, but they've been known to filter out some of the stupid molecules too, just the higher octane stuff.

* I'm not really sure whether that's due to normal Federal Bureaucracy or that the door keeps getting smashed up.

City cops vs. Sheriffs

  US Police State  Liberty/Libertarianism  Anarcho-tyranny  Legal Stupidity

While reading Michelle Malkin's first-hand account of being on the bad end of Anarcho-Tyranny in Denver a week-end ago, as Peak Stupidity wrote about in the previous post, I noted a comment by a cop in the thread. The guy somewhat defended the cops, really only in the sense of, to paraphrase, "no, we don't all just want to obey the chief, whatever he says, and collect our pensions. We don't make that much."

Well, it may be true that in some locales the job is not as lucrative as in NY City and such places, but it is a pretty good deal. There are the perks of not going through any hassle to carry a gun in self-defense, driving and parking in whatever manner one likes, and retiring early with some pension*, large or small, at a young age. These are pretty big incentives to lay low, and "just do things the way they pay us to do them." (That's a line I've heard a WHOLE LOT lately in my job.)

NY City cops on the beat:

In American large and medium sized cities, the cops are not at all beholden to the local population, i.e. we are not their "customers". The mayor picks a chief, both of these jobs being very political, and then the cops answer to the chief. They are not men, women, or what-have-you of the people. They may even really try to "protect and serve", but after a few years in, they will understand that they can't last long like that. Gotta "serve" out those 20 years. So, that "protect and serve" crap on the side of the cars (not really the idea anyway) is about protecting serving the years and protecting the jobs.

To the contrary, the local Sheriffs of at least the rural counties of America are a different story. If you go back to the body of law that was passed on to America from our British Founders, you will first of all realize that, hey, there were no police officers back then. There was no police. The establishment of a police force would have disgusted the Founders of our country, as, from their very recent experience, they abhorred the idea of a "standing army". However, the Sheriff was a local elected official of the people. We all have heard of the evil Sheriff of Nottingham from Robin Hood, and whatever you want to make of that story, there were Sheriffs going way back into British history.

Sheriff Tom Rummel of Sanders County, Montana - one of the good guys**

(Sanders County, not one of the very biggest ones out west, has ~ 11,000 residents on 2,800 mi2. That's the way to run a country.)

Now readers, our law/Constitution-minded commenter Adam Smith may need to chime in in the comments, as Peak Stupidity does not claim to be a team of legal eagles. I will say that per my reading of the Constitutionalists types on the web over the years, the Sheriff of the county, whether it IS in a big city even, is the highest authority, higher than the State and the Feds. Well in the cities, there is the Police. No matter what is Constitutional, you won't hear of the Sheriff of Bronx county overruling the Police Chief and Mayor De Blasio.

Out in the rural counties, it's a different story. When you have a population of as little as 450 (this was in a county in central Montana about 1/2 the size of Massachusetts) the people are going to know the Sheriff and be able to tell HIM what to do. That's the low-end in population, of course, but even with 15,000 people in the county, a significant number (vote-wise) can be in personal touch with the guy. Instead of the Feds saying "jump!", and law enforcement saying "how high?", oftentimes, the local Sheriff can (at least try to) tell the Feds where to go.

The local Sheriff is the guy that Americans of the old days relied on as "the law", and he was elected by them. That's the key, but it only works with relatively small populations, as otherwise the more global politics are overwhelming. That's the case today with the cops in the cities, such as in the case with the Anarcho-Tyranny Michelle Malkin personally witnessed in Denver, Colorado. The attitude of the cops could come down the chain of command from a George Soros hand-picked official.

It's too bad the United State is not mostly rural, as it was the first century and a half. We might not have the Anarcho-Tyranny we see today if that were the case.

* Oh, about those pensions, yeah, if you men in blue were to read a little Peak Stupidity on the Global Financial Stupidity going on, you might know this: Even if your pension plans somehow remain officially solvent during this era of (12 years already) basement-dwelling interest rates, then then you might indeed get your $6,500 a month (wow!) in 2032 based on your last salary with the O/T, but ... how to break it to you ...

Uh, that condo in Sarasota that you plan to buy? It may have been hyperinflated to $4.5 Million by then, and you'll be lucky to living off of happy meals and and an occasional Dunkin Donut, for old time's sake, with your retired LEO discount (of course!) at $27 and $8.99 respectively. You could probably get a good deal from a buddy on an old cop cruiser... to sleep in. "Got a cop motor, cop shocks, cop tranny ... sharing the back seat of your dwelling - she's a man, baby!" Good luck with all that!

** There's a story behind this picture, as, per Idahoans for Liberty Sheriff ABC was involved in the events out in Malheur County, Oregon 4 years ago. Says the post: "Sadly, he [Sheriff Rummel] stops short of ordering the feds to say out of his county entirely."

Anarcho-Tyranny at the Support-the-Police rally. We're finally on our own.

I'd meant to post about the latest Michelle Malkin column last week. She has done a bang-up job banging on the Kung Flu (Season 1!) stupidity, along with Ron Paul (both can be read on the site - here and here, respectively). Mrs. Malkin's latest writing was on a different subject entirely.

One Nation Under Anarcho-Tyranny was written as a personal account, very personal, in fact, as Mrs. Malkin and her conservative co-horts were in just about in the middle of a street battle with the usual antifa types. In this account of what happened in Denver, Colorado a weekend ago, the writer appropriately brought out the term Anarcho-Tyranny, one of Peak Stupidity's topic keys. We've been discussing this, what's basically policy by government in America now, on and off since the Charlottesville, Virginia street battle 3 summers ago.

It was anarcho-tyranny as usual* in Denver, as the local police, besides one cop, per the account, stood down and not only let the speakers be harassed (one could say it's not their job to break it up), but prevented Michelle Makin's conservative crowd from defending themselves. This is how it's been going. Ironically, and not in the Morrisetteian sense of that word, Miss Malkin's rally was a "Law Enforcement Appreciation Day" rally, meant to show support for the "men in blue".

Of course, it's easy to write in hindsight "what'd you expect was gonna happen?" It is still unexpected that the law would just completely favor one side during a political conflict, at least by people who still assume we are living in a country with law & order and all that. Secondly, this was specifically a rally to show support for law enforcement, as a group, what with all the defund the police efforts going on. You'd really expect the cops to help you if you need help, if you came out to rally on their behalf.

Nope, the difference now is that the orders from on high are for the police to stand down when conservatives are being attacked and only enforce the law, good and hard, on any conservative in the least bit out of line. (Well, defending one's self is not out of line, but they don't want you to do that either.). It is to be perfectly expected, though, that the cops, with a few exceptions, will follow those orders, rather than doing the right thing. Like lots of people, they care about their lifestyle and finances more than they care about doing the right thing. Why hold a rally for these people, next time? They are just the enforcers of Anarcho-Tyranny, just doing their jobs, dontcha' know.

Peak Stupidity has never had a great respect for LEOs**, possibly due to our being a water sign, not at all compatible with Leo's. They are not by any means all bad guys, as I've found out through the multiple interactions involving traffic stops. One nice interaction is related in our post "First Responders!" - The Cops. Michelle Malkin did mention one exception in her column, a guy who did do the right thing when things got violent at her rally. Still, I'm of the opinion that there shouldn't be many times in one's life in which one should call the cops, as it's asking for MORE trouble, most of the time.

We need to all realize that at this late stage of what has just been a Cold Civil War between the ctrl-left/diversity crowd and traditional Americans is going hot . At this late stage, the left has infiltrated ALL the institutions of society. We thought Big Biz was somehow not against us, but that has been proven wrong. Some thought that law enforcement and the judicial system, if not on our side, would at least be impartial. That has been proven wrong.

I haven't included any excerpts this time, so please click on the link above to see how that support-the-cops rally went down, in this era of AnarIt seems like Mrs. Malkin learned a hard lesson in Denver a week and a half ago. The lesson is, as the song said: we're finally on our own.

PS: OK, just one excerpt from the end of Michelle Malkin's article:
[UPDATE: On Wednesday morning, the Denver police union president APOLOGIZED and confirmed that a “retreat order” was in place, effectively abandoning the duty to protect and serve the peaceful, pro-police rally attendees.]

So the message is loud and clear. When push comes to bloody shove in End Stage America, under the rule of the anarcho-tyrants, we, the law-abiding, are the enemy. Those in uniform sworn to protect and serve will turn their backs on us because their bosses don’t answer to the public. They protect and serve the mob.
At least we've all come to an understanding now.

* Here's just another example out of many from Paul Kersey's blog: - - Black Police Chief of Raleigh Sides with Black Insurrectionists, Ceding Monopoly on Violence to the Mob; Says Will Not Put Police in Harm's Way to Protect Private Property (you won't find many short title's on his blog). I happened to have had this a tab open in the browser from a good while ago.

** I HATE HATE HATE that term and only wrote it here for the joke.

Sick Commie Fuck Michael Brune Cancels Founder John Muir of the High Sierras

I'm sorry to have to put cuss words in post titles now, but this latest news out of the Sierra Club has me boiling. It's making me angry to write this post, and I'll have to break this into 2 posts just to not get carried away.

Founder of the Sierra Club, John Muir:

(Note the lack of Northface colorful rain-proof gear and water-bottles and tools hanging off anodized carabiners. This guy's in too nice a dress suit to even wear to church these days.)

John Muir was out hiking the back country of California in what's now Yosemite National Park a century and a half ago, and then spent time doing the same in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. He passed up a professorship at Harvard (if that means anything to anyone anymore) to stay in the wilderness he loved. He was the co-founder, along with Univ. of California, Berkeley Professor Henry Senger, of the Sierra Club, a group of hikers and naturalists, 128 years ago.

More importantly, John Muir pushed for the designation of Yosemite as a National Park. Peak Stupidity readers will know that this blogger is as Libertarian as the rest of them, but these beautiful national parks are something I'm very grateful men like John Muir (and Teddy Roosevelt) created. Any backcountry hiker who hasn't heard of the man is just ignorant and ought to go live with the bears for a while like Timothy Treadwell. Here's what John Muir saved for Americans:

(For this and the follow-up post, all the color pictures are of Yosemite Park.)

The Sierra Club itself was instrumental in the creation of Yellowstone Park in (mostly) NW Wyoming and Glacier and Mt. Rainier Pars in Washington State.* (The latter has a Camp Muir at 10,000 ft. up in which climbers can stay till they start out for the summit of 14 1/2 thousand at about 4 AM.)

Because it is now somehow the most important thing in the world that John Muir was not even necessary a race realist of his time, but ASSOCIATED with someone or other, the Sierra Club is cancelling him as a person. He is the FOUNDER of the club! These people such as cocksucking fuckwad Executive Director Michael Brune** who are now throwing all the history of environmental stewardship away for Political Correctness, wouldn't even be able to hike in that beautiful wilderness, much less make a living off of donor money, had it not been for John Muir.

OK, I've mentioned the mission creep before in this organization - see Mission Creep by the Sierra Club - 3 1/2 years back. That betrayal of the cause of environmentalism for 30 pieces of silver (OK, more like 4.1 Million pieces at today's spot price) to open borders pusher/donor David Gelbaum was more than mission creep. It was an evil deed, selling out like that, but I guess if all you have is the love of money, it at least makes sense.

This latest stupidity is beyond making sense. I don't think this crap would have happened even in the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Those sick fuckers hated the landlords and "capitalist roaders" and such. If they weren't too messy, and were more blessed in the first place, to ever have kept pristine a place like Yosemite Park, I really think they'd have not sent the owner to a pig farm in Manchuria.

Another thing about this that made this even worse is that I'd first though it was just the SJW set of the Sierra Club that possible was agitating for this cancellation of John Muir. I followed a link to this Sierra Club page and realized this was the damn Executive Director writing, well, read the following:
The Sierra Club is a 128-year-old organization with a complex history, some of which has caused significant and immeasurable harm. As defenders of Black life pull down Confederate monuments across the country, we must also take this moment to reexamine our past and our substantial role in perpetuating white supremacy.

It’s time to take down some of our own monuments, starting with some truth-telling about the Sierra Club’s early history. That will be followed by posts on how we’ve had to evolve on issues of immigration and population control, environmental justice, and Indigenous sovereignty. We will also devote a post to a discussion of how the Sierra Club is working to center the voices of people we have historically ignored, so we can begin repairing some of the harms done.

The most monumental figure in the Sierra Club’s past is John Muir. Beloved by many of our members, his writings taught generations of people to see the sacredness of nature. But Muir maintained friendships with people like Henry Fairfield Osborn, who worked for both the conservation of nature and the conservation of the white race. Head of the New York Zoological Society and the board of trustees of the American Museum of Natural History, Osborn also helped found the American Eugenics Society in the years after Muir’s death.
See, John Muir was friends with the badwhite guy. OMG, he'd have probably LIKED Mr. Osborn on twitter if they were around today! So, the Sierra Club has got to evolve. I'm guessing the means your donation will not beautify the wilderness or allow you better access to it. Your money will be used to tell you what a piece of shit you are for being a white man (or woman now). They need a lot, too, because that's who comes to the meetings and goes out hiking in the wilderness, the white people. It takes a lot of money to tell all of them how much of a piece of shit they each are. So, ante up, Bitchez!

That's some angry facetiousness there, so please don't ante up. I should put this somewhere in every post on Environmental Stupidity, or at the top of every post here:


That's it, I gotta quit now. More on this in a later post.

* The name is just Spanish for mountain range, but I assume it's named after the Sierra Nevada mountain range* in California, in which Yosemite sits, as do Sequoia also and King Canyon National Parks.

Unbelievably, when I looked on duckduckgo to just check on the naming of the Sierra Club I got pages and pages about the sick shit that is the subject of this post.

For Everything there is a Season ..

..turn, turn, turn.

(Like a number of other days when I get fixated on commenting, I didn't leave enough time for a period to right up a good post. I have plenty in the works, as stupidity is not winding down anytime soon, from what I see.)

The Biblical book Ecclesiastes contains some poetic writing that most of us have heard. It's Chapter 3, verses 1 through 8:
To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time of war, and a time of peace.
If you recall this from somewhere else beside the Bible, it is from the 1960s rock band The Byrds. There wonderful song Turn, Turn, Turn comes almost directly from the Book of Ecclesiastes, with only slight changes to the poetic wording. I heard the song first, myself.

Where does America stand? What time is it?

The Byrds has the sound of a 1960s band, and it was in the middle of that decade when they had their heyday. I love that bright guitar sound.

The Byrds
Roger McGuinn – lead guitar, banjo, Moog synthesizer, vocals
Gene Clark – tambourine, rhythm guitar, harmonica, vocals
David Crosby – rhythm guitar, vocals*
Michael Clarke – drums
Chris Hillman – bass guitar, rhythm guitar, mandolin, vocals

Roger McGuinn, Gene Clark, and Chris Hillman formed the aptly named McGuinn, Clark, and Hillman in the late 1970s. They had the same sound.

* Famous also, of course, from Crosby, Stills, and Nash (and sometimes Young), featured on Peak Stupidity with Teach your Children Well and Southern Cross. David Crosby left the Byrds in 1967.

F.U. Money, F.U. Skills, and F.U. Attitude

Posted On: Saturday - July 25th 2020 7:49PM MST

(Peak Stupidity couldn't justify 3 of the same cuss words in the title of a post for fear of cancellation - not enough Fuck You money. Yeah, it's OK in the body. Wait, but we've got the attitude, at least.)

You've likely heard the term "fuck you money" before, meaning one has accumulated enough assets to have no fear of losing employment or even ability to make more money in what is now called a "cancellation". With F.U. money one can then speak his mind more freely, do the job the way he would like to with low regard for the HR weenies or even customers, and just feel more his own man in his workaday world. It would be a really nice thing for any conservative writer whose purpose in life involves pissing off the kind of people who like to cancel him.

Ron Unz, proprietor of the site with his easy-to-type-in-the-browser-bar own name, is an example. He features some writers who are just whacked-out, but some of them, along with the many non-whacked-out writers are those that trouble the Establishment greatly. Steve Sailer is a great and prolific example, being just too truthful and too far off the narrative. Mr. Unz is just not worried about not being able to pay his rent, mortgage, insurance, eat well, etc.* (He made a lot of money in the finance and finance-software business way back. I listened to a good over hour-long interview. He came across well, BTW.)

Most Americans just don't have quite that much money. Hell, most Americans don't save enough to be able to go 2 months without a paycheck without being in arrears on stuff. Peak Stupidity has discussed this problem multiple times. It's not the obvious problems of financial stress, insecurity, etc, that are the results of this financial stupidity but also the effect of causing American wage workers to be forced to act like obedient cucks and suck-ups to the SJW policies and environment on the job - see Credit? Forget it! You got it? You get it!, More on living paycheck-to-paycheck, and Poor Feral workers living paycheck-to-paycheck. They don't have "Fuck You" money - they have "Fuck Me" debt.

The ability to be free to speak one's mind and ignore the SJW narrative in this country is not just a function of money, however. Even if you don't make a killing and haven't saved a bunch, you can have this ability or status if you have some mean skills. This could be at the top end or at the lower end, so I'll explain each in a couple of paragraphs.

Let's say you're some kind of business consultant or engineering/technical type who has been around a long time and is considered an expert this one area. Sure, the customer can get another consulting firm, but they really don't have anyone else that they can really trust to do it right. If they've got a plant that loses a million dollars an hour when the production lines are down, they don't want to screw around with anyone else. You tell them when you're coming, and they get everything ready for you. Some of these guys like this could quit anytime, and get other customers that they haven't had time for, in a day.

Yeah, sure, you don't want to purposefully rip down the BLM sign in front of the plant (though even then, the HR ladies will make sure there is a fuss, but then they'll have to just "hug it out" with you, because, dammit, the lines cannot go down!) You can say what you want. If they don't like it, they don't have to call you again. In fact, some of these guys do have F.U. money in addition to F.U. skills, but they either enjoy it, have nothing else to do with their time, or even just feel obligated to make sure this production keeps on, just out of integrity.

At the lower end (but no insult intended here), there are the skills that are called "the trades" by many. I just never used that term much, but hands-on craftsmanship, wood-work, mechanical, electrical, plumbing work, etc. is what I mean. There's another post coming in agreement with many conservatives who, for reasons of both the stupidity of the modern university educations, and the financial aspect of it, encourage young men to go into this kind of work instead of going to college. I will agree for this other reason in the upcoming post: one can obtain mad F.U. skills.

Illegal (and some legal) Mexicans and Central Americans have been hired for cheap - because the true costs are socialized - for residential roofing, framing, and such by the millions over the last 20 years. That's not a good thing, of course, but there are the precision skills that these people don't in general have that are still in demand. A guy who does a good job with millwork, or kitchen jobs, or wiring, is someone who will remain in high demand, especially in high-end neighborhoods, just by word of mouth after a while. People do want jobs done right.

A good and trustworthy car mechanic is pretty rare, and customers know that. The shops of the car dealers, with the huge overhead, the bureaucracy, and the high rates and parts prices, are to be avoided if possible. The big worry with anyone you don't know, including the guy at the dealer, is that he will make some more work for himself or the shop, sometimes good for you in the long run and some times just fraudulent. You can't know easily though. You'd better not piss off a good mechanic.

Imagine, if you will, a good shade-tree car mechanic who has said the wrong thing in the wrong place, and has local SJWs up in arms. Facebook and Twitter are crawling with comments. The hard-core twitterers and FBers with nothing better to do than to try to enforce Political Correctness, have called for him to be fired .. from like ... what ... by whom? OK, they will tweet for a boycott then, yeah, that's it, shaming all the current and potential customers with the threats of being called names like racist, xenophobe, oh and that he is "creepy".

As a customer, what do you do? I mean, you don't want to be known by any of those names all over Social Media. What if your boss sees that? But, well, you really like your Beemer, and the guy said you'd better get the timing belt done within 10,000 miles or so. You don't want to get stuck by the side of the highway with an economically totaled Beemer**. It's a real dilemma, and perhaps the solution will be to get the work done surreptitiously by getting your lawn guy to bring the car into the shop, maybe at night, through the back. You can be cancelled if you're not careful.

A good mechanic will not lack for work, and can't be cancelled. It's the same for a good handyman. Political Correctness is one thing, but ... So, there are F.U. skills too, and in times like these, it's got to be a good feeling to have them.

If you want to have that F.U. attitude, having F.U. money and/or skills will help you attain this. Or, you may have the attitude because you're fed up and just don't give a rat's ass anymore - this works for the fairly young and the fairly old. Otherwise, watch your mouth constantly or be ready to live off the grid till this Cultural Revolution is over, one way or another.

No doubt it was easier in the 1970s, during Johnny Paycheck's time:

* Now, it's another story about whether he can maintain his ability to "broadcast" the views of all these alternative writers with these "interesting, important, and controversial perspectives" (per the banner up top). I would like to comment in another post about his interesting "Lord Voltemorte Effect", which you can read from him here.

** I was told by my mechanic that most of the modern cars have interference engines. That means during the time when the cam shaft is not turning, but the engine is, starting in a fraction of a second after the failure, your pistons will hit the valves. A timing belt failure on a non-interference engine will just result in tow charges, but otherwise the engine is toast. (I've seen both happen.)

Tales from two pundits

Posted On: Friday - July 24th 2020 8:57PM MST
In Topics: 
  Pundits  Liberty/Libertarianism

This post is just a little bit of commentary on the latest columns from Peak Stupidity favorite pundits, Ron Paul and Ann Coulter. The long-term reader should understand by now that, here at Peak Stupidity, we got BOTH KINDS of ideologies, Libertarianism AND Conservatism.

Uhhh, yeah, where were we? Dr. Paul has been doing a bang up job documenting the totalitarianism of the Kung Flu Panic-Fest, especially now during Season 2. His latest writing on this is Big Holes in the Covid 'Spike' Narrative . Here's the first 1/3 or so of the column:
Motorcycle accidents ruled Covid deaths? In the rush to paint Florida as the epicenter of the “second wave” of the coronavirus outbreak, government officials and their allies in the mainstream media have stooped to ridiculous depths to maximize the death count. A television station this weekend looked into two highly unusual Covid deaths among victims in their 20s, and when they asked about co-morbidities they were told one victim had none, because his Covid death came in the form of a fatal motorcycle accident.

Sadly, this is not an isolated incident. In fact the “spike” that has dominated the mainstream for the last couple of weeks is full of examples of such trickery.

Washington state last week revised its Covid death numbers downward when it was revealed that anyone who passed away for any reason whatsoever who also had coronavirus was listed as a “Covid-19 death” even if the cause of death had nothing to do with Covid-19.

In South Carolina, the state health agency admitted that the “spike” in Covid deaths was only the result of delayed reporting of suspected Covid deaths.
I've hardly had any real disagreement with Ron Paul. It's not a disagreement really to think that he is just a bit naive on the immigration issue, perhaps thinking that a significant number of new arrivals to America will be the Libertarian Ron Paul-voting type. That's because I never really read anything from him pushing the immigration invasion. He just does not come across as understanding the existentially of the problem.

I did have an unz commenter give me a pretty convincing argument that Dr. Paul wasn't exactly straight honest, covering his ass regarding accusations of his being associated with the alt-right, in the '12 primary campaign. I do remember some of that. Other than these two problems, I've agreed with the man 100%. In reading his words on the COVID-19 stupidity, he comes across as the sanest man in the room ... any room. Please take the couple of minutes (if that) to read his latest.

Next, our favorite literary pundit, discussed too many times under the Pundits topic key to list links, we have Ann Coulter. We noted 3 1/2 years back New Column by Ann Coulter proves she is a Libertarian. Miss Coulter bats a .980 by our estimation. This one brings her average down.

The column is Dems Are The Party Of Antifa .
In Portland, Chicago, New York, Seattle, Atlanta and elsewhere, children are not merely being blocked from the schoolhouse door—they’re being killed. They’re being maimed. Citizens are having their property looted and their public spaces destroyed, all with the connivance of local Democratic officials.

And once again, the Democrats are championing states’ rights to protect domestic terrorists.

“Trump & his stormtroopers must be stopped.”—Nancy Pelosi

Democrats and the media want the federal government to brutally crack down on people who don’t wear masks—whatever the states say—but faced with an actual violent rebellion, the feds are supposed to stand back and let the governors lead!

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler called the federal officers protecting American citizens “an attack on our democracy.” Yes, Orval, Portland is “occupied territory”—just like Little Rock in 1957!
Miss Coulter points out the left-wing's hypocrisy (4th paragraph), as she always does so well, but it's just that I happen to agree with the policy the left is being hypocritical on here.

Sorry, maybe it's too hard-core a Libertarian position even for Ann Coulter, but just as with the segregated school houses in Arkansas 63 years back being none of the Feral Government's business, neither are the riots in Portland, Oregon and elsewhere today. OK, one can pick the loophole that the destruction of Federal property should be prosecuted by the Feds. That's a good foot in the door.

Sure, we'd probably all like to see President Trump send troops into Portland to kick in some heads. Other than in defense of piece of Federal property, however, no, the left is right, even if for their own evil reasons. The people of Oregon should petition the Governor, or their State Reps. With no help there, it is up to the people themselves to stop this destruction. That's whose business it is.

Peak Stupidity has bad-mouthed the President to no small degree lately for not doing things that ARE the job of the US Chief Executive. Other than the use of the bully-tweet, to encourage the people of Oregon to do something, sorry, it's not the President Trump or any part of Fed-Gov's job. This is a good example of the American people thinking the one guy is supposed to do it all.

Still, you may want to read Ann Coulter's column for her description of what's been going on in Portland over the last 7 weeks or so. You probably can't get all this from the Lyin' Press.

Enjoy these two tales from these two favorite pundits.

To IRS: One hundred million and 00/100 ~~~~~_ Dollars

Posted On: Friday - July 24th 2020 10:28AM MST
In Topics: 
  Humor  US Feral Government

You probably should put in a squiggly line so the IRS can't fill in a few extra hundred dollars for themselves. [There it is! You're welcome. - Ed] Still, I'm sorry, but your check will be declined due to your failure to adequately read the 1040 Instruction packet (in convenient .pdf format). There may be some interest accrued during the correction period, and no, we don't charge the FED discount rate, but our normal 8% ...

I spent a lot of damn money on these people a week ago, so I may as well get something else* out of this income tax business. I was ctrl-f'ing (not the cuss word, the short-cut key) for "check" in the IRS 1040 on-line tax instruction .pdf when I ran into the little gem above. That's right, make sure you don't write any checks for over "Nine hundred and ninety-nine million, nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine luft balloons and 99/100 Dollars". Otherwise, you'll need 2 checks, which these days means another 50 cents or so. (Yep, that's how much they cost me the last time - inflation, Bitchez! - even in checks.)

Does anyone imagine that there are rich guys around who, first of all even look at the IRS 1040 tax instructions, even have accountants that look at the 1040 tax instructions, or, much less, just pay the, let's see, Taxable Income x 37% (0.37) - $35,012.50? (Oh, but if you're married still you can subtract off $61,860. Whew, what a break!) This is the system for the middle class in that .pdf, maybe more like the lower- and middle- middle-class. Check out Peak Stupidity's Americans' attitudes on the income tax for a thorough speculative run-down of the income tax system as it applies to 4 classes of Americans. (I spent a lot of time on that one, so ...)

The tax system set up for the people who actually pay anything in the neighborhood of $100 million is one arranged by the Feral Gov't regulators with the help of the people who end up paying nothing near the neighborhood of $100 million when it's all said and done. The whole thing is an art that requires as much creativity as, you know, one of those guys from the Renaissance. You know, the fancy hotel downtown where the accountants of these money-makers stay.

The people who should be paying $100,000,000 in income tax have accountants who make so much money saving them money that these accountants have their own accountants to do their taxes. Who does those OTHER accountants' taxes, you ask? Listen, I don't kn... it's just ... it's accountants all the way down.

So, please, Mr. IRS publications man, don't try to bullshit me and make us all think that the system is the same for everybody. The middle class gets screwed as is the usual thing these days. That's why I was the one cntr-f'ing around your .pdf looking for information on who to cut a check to, not the guy who is required to cut 2 checks. Maybe you have this text in there to rope in that one occasional naive nouveau rich guy. Good luck with all that.

Most Americans are going to find the next paragraph slightly more relevant: "What if You Can't Pay?"

* We ran into and posted about one interesting tidbit during the tax calculation process before.

Scenes from the Kung Flu Summer re-Panic - Part 7

Posted On: Thursday - July 23rd 2020 8:52PM MST
In Topics: 
  General Stupidity  Humor  Healthcare Stupidity  Big-Biz Stupidity

It's been just about another week since the last COVID stupidity, at least anything new for me and worth writing a post about.

Stick 'em up! One million dollars in un-contaminated bills. Put 'em in the sack, and throw in some un-used wipes, will ya? Oh, all of you, back on your stickers, or I'll sneeze, I swear I will!

We've been to the bank a number of times since the Kung Flu Panic-fest started. They didn't want anyone going into the actual bank building for a spell. I come from a family that never adopted the drive-through lifestyle, so, if you can believe this, it was a new thing to put the paperwork into the canister and watch the air blow the thing over to the tellers and see it come back with money and receipts. Kids LUV it!

During the Panic-Fest intermission, or break between Seasons 1 and 2, the banks opened up. One was supposed to wear a mask and stay apart from others (uhh, I can't see how much she's counting out from 6 ft away, so, just sayin', "please... don't ... stand ... so ... far from me.") They also controlled how many people could get in at a time. That was especially applicable to any bank robbers, cause, you know how they can be sometimes.

The face mask wearing has been enforced with a Stalinist intensity since Season 2, "Return of the Panic", started. I was putting one on as I entered the main lobby, and the lady was already on my case. "Where's the little podium thingy?" (where you get the slips of paper and use one of the chained-down pens - they must be very dear) I asked. Gone for the duration or something, she told me, due to, what now? Therefore, not only are you supposed to stay apart, keeping people out once a crowd forms, but the process is slower since anyone waiting can't do anything till he's at the teller window. Stupid, it seems, but then this virus... I mean it's so deadly that you don't even know you've got it until you get your test results back.

I recognized the teller girl, even with her nice designer face mask on. It was all friendly enough, as usual, and I tried to keep in good humor. I did have the thought, "hey, how are they supposed to ID robbers nowadays?" The girl did ask me to lower my mask as I showed her my driver's license to take out money, along with the other transactions. At that point we were 2 1/2 feet away, so ... OK, I'm just sayin'... That's even more silly, as it was just procedure and not necessary at all, since she DID know me.

I guess she knew me pretty well to have not hit some red button behind the counter (or do they use an app now) when I asked "what are you going to do about bank robbers now that we all are wearing these masks?" By "we" I didn't mean "we bank robbers", but more, "we people forced to wear these stupid masks." That COULD be taken the wrong way, but then, again, she knows me and had ID'd me, after all.

It's very hard to have a really original idea, it seems, as there is nothing new under the sun. During the H1N1 flu epidemic in 2009, there was a bank robber in San Diego - that's the gentleman in our photo above - who made a special effort to not spread the swine flu during his un-surprisingly successful heist. Per this Baltimore Sun article,
The FBI and San Diego police are asking for the public's help to identify a man who robbed four bank tellers Friday while wearing a surgical mask with the letters and numbers "H1N1," the swine-flu virus designator.
Now that's some good citizenship, warning your robbees about a very contagious disease, even when very busy with a job. Oh, the article was from 2009, so I'm guessing the FBI and San Diego PD did not get the help they needed.*

I'm telling you, between the Anarcho-Tyranny that used to only let antifa Commies wear masks but put the hammer down on anyone on in the right, and now robbery opportunities, this mandatory face mask business is a real game changer. Things will be different even when it's voluntary, so long as the Panic-Fest is still on, and masks are seen as normal.

* I couldn't find anything on-line saying the case was solved. However, I did learn just a little bit about the Geezer Bandit who performed a string of many bank robberies around southern California. Man, I tell you, even in retirement, Californians really stay active and don't just sit around collecting their Social Security checks!

Jeff Sessions, Tommy Tuberville, Trump, The South, and worship of Football

In Topics: 
  Trump  Bread and Circuses

Peak Stupidity urges our readers again to not regard this site as a primary new source (haha!), as we can be weeks behind sometimes. In this case, it's just over one week, but we read a few days ago about the loss of prospective returning immigration patriot to the US Senate, Mr. Jeff Sessions. Mr. Jeff Sessions lost in a GOP primary race for Senator from Alabama to former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville on July 14th.

Worship on your knees, Auburn fans and other Alabama cucks!

This loss of the great immigration patriot Jeff Sessions was due in part to support give by President Trump, acting like a bitchy, on-the-rag 15 y/o schoolgirl out for revenge. I looked back just now and am very surprised I haven't mentioned this at all on the blog, not even anywhere in the Trump-bashing posts of late. I feel bad for having written the one post, Good night, Sleepy Jeff, taking Trump's side in Sessions dismissal 1 2/3 years back.

Peak Stupidity is nothing if not self-referential most of the time, so if you don't feel like reading that post, I'll just say that my beef against Mr. Sessions was not about his gentlemanly self-recusal from the Russia-hoax hearings. It was about the Justice Department not coming down on the Anarcho-Tyranny of the Charlottesville, Virginia travesty and other pro-White America stuff the the DOJ could have gotten involved with. Things did not get much better on this score after Mr. Sessions' dismissal anyway.

VDare had numerous posts/articles about the AL primary, coming down squarely on Mr. Sessions side. He is a staunch immigration patriot, as greatly opposed to Coach Tuberville. This is why Trump's little hissy fit, turned a year and a half later into a prissy, revenge-filled effort to work against an immigration patriot like Jeff Sessions was so #SAD. No Ronald Reagan master strategist is he.

Mr. Tuberville won the primary election. An commenter the other day brought up a very good point the other day. (I'll link to it if I can find it again soon.) Tommy Tuberville was the head coach of Auburn University's football team, one of the 2 biggies, Auburn and 'Bama itself (Univ. of Alabama in Tuscaloosa). It is very likely that for most Alabamans, the rivalry between Alabama and Auburn in football is more important than the primary race, or any election held anywhere, for that matter.

The South takes college football very seriously, much too seriously in my opinion. Sure, pro football is just not as big, and there used to be not much of it around. People LUV LUV LUV the tailgate parties and spending the big bucks to SUPPORT THE TEAM! Rah, fucking, rah... I mean, there are people that fly in from around the area, drive in caravans down the interstate with their four flags flying, and even many housing units that one can BUY (not rent) to have a place to hang out during those 6 or 7, tops, home football game weekends. There are people that never even graduated from the institutions that know more about their football team's plays than the best engineering students know about Newtons' laws of motion.

These coaches get paid the big bucks and are more widely known and talked about than anyone's US Congressman.

This aspect of the Bread & Circuses really wouldn't bug me in normal times, say the 1980s (and, granted, I went to a number of games back then myself). These aren't normal times, though. There are things going on and decisions to be made that are much more critical to our future as a country and a people... than who's got the best passing game.

Yet, the Coach won the primary, albeit with help from President Trump, if he is of any help anymore, his mojo seeming to have vanished up Jared Kushner's ass. As this country goes even more to hell, I wonder if the good people of Alabama will think about how important having an immigration-cuck Senator that was the famous Auburn football coach really was. Madness!, errr Stupidity!.

PS: From the Fox News article on the election result, we read:
On Saturday, after Trump tweeted that “Jeff Sessions is a disaster who has let us all down. We don’t want him back in Washington!” – Sessions returned fire – calling Trump’s tweets “juvenile insults” and emphasizing that “Alabama does not take orders from Washington.”
No, Alabama takes orders from cucked-out football fans. I'm so sorry, Jeff Sessions and America.

Without the one cuss word in there, this was Dave Barry's bit, wasn't it? I confuse him a lot with P.J. O'Rourke, but I believe it was the very humorous Dave Barry of the Miami newspaper. That and "that'd be a great name for a band" were my favorite lines.

From across the pond, on an island of stupidity, call it the Stupidity Annex, comes this laugh-a-sentence story from the Beeb, which is what the Dweebs there call the BBC (Government British Broadcasting Company). The humor starts in the title - Hakim Sillah death: Teen stabbed at knife awareness course. First, we read:
The 17-year-old boy, who cannot be named*, knifed Hakim Sillah, 18, twice in the chest at the west London centre on 7 November last year, Isleworth Crown Court was told.

Prosecutors said there was "a cruel irony" that Mr Sillah was stabbed while attending a weapons awareness course.
Yes, isn't that ironic, like ray-ay-ain on your wedding day ... but bloodier? I can't skip a single paragraph, as the irony just keeps on ...
The teenager denies murdering him.

He also denies two counts of wounding with intent and one count of unlawful wounding.
He stabbed him in the chest with a knife multiple times and the guy died, but still, he denies murdering him (maybe the other "gentleman" dies of the COVID-one-niner - "Chalk up another one, Liam!") You just can't get a good Barrister these days.

Sorry, this is not a fisking here. This post simply contains people-of-color commentary.
Michelle Nelson QC, prosecuting, said all participants at Hillingdon Civic Centre had been risk assessed before the session, which was run by the Youth Offending Teams (YOTS), and "those classified as high risk were precluded from attending".

"Both the young men must have been risk assessed, but the sad reality is that both attended that course carrying knives," she said.
Yeah, we're all assessed in here, I'm assessed, he's assessed, my grandmama's assessed. None of us would think of bringing our knives, but, well, this one guy may not have been perfectly assessed, so I'm gonna bring just the one knife in case he starts anything.

Then comes a few words about the DNA evidence and the "Rambo Knife" found in the woods near the defendant's home.
"He says he did not intend to kill or to cause really serious harm and told the police in his caution interview that he had acted in lawful self-defence. [He] had intended to stab Hakim Sillah in the arm, but he moved.

"The prosecution say the defendant took a deliberate decision to stab the deceased to the chest twice, we say, lawful self-defence does not arise."

The trial
stupidity continues.
FIFY, Beeb. Heh! Defence? My spell check bill is gonna be intense this month.

I don't know how much guys like these two knife awareness students had kept up with Western culture, what with being in England and all, after all. You'd think they might have watched a little Indiana Jones at some point in their lives. Never bring a knife to a knife awareness class when you could have brought a gun.

Peak Stupidity included this scene before in one of our other 2 posts about stabbings in formerly-Great formerly Britain, Knife, immigration policy Clash on the streets of London. The other post was an earlier one, Knife control in London - some well-forecast stupidity.

It's one thing to have to deal with this violence from black thugs in America. They've been here a while. It's the utmost in stupidity to import them in large quantities after you already (should) know better! "Madness!", as the man said.

* I dig, I dig. Some of those names are hard enough to pronounce, but spelling them correctly is not worth the trouble. I don't blame The Beeb for not even trying.
