What the actual f*(k is wrong with these people? It’s a serious question. I’m actually asking. Is it lead poisoning? Too much coffee? Did aliens implant chips in them? Were their mothers smoking crack every day throughout pregnancy? It’s got to be something.
Seriously, why doesn’t this guy just declare that the Death Star will be operational once the rebels reach Endor?
One leaked memo highlighted the goal of expanding the U.S. electorate by “at least 10 million voters.” The document, reviewed by the Free Beacon, revealed this policy aim would be accomplished “by lowering barriers to voter registration through the various forms of modernization and increased ballot access while sustaining and expanding the franchise by establishing strong protections against vote suppression, denial and dilution.” Indeed, Soros-financed activists have been leading the drive against Voter ID laws. …

Vaguely related – service dogs wounded in Missouri shooting spree:
Comfort dogs have become a familiar sight for communities and families ravaged by gun violence. This weekend, they became inadvertent victims.
Two golden retrievers from a Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dog unit and their human handlers were among those wounded in a random shooting spree in Joplin, Mo., on Saturday morning, officials say.
A van carrying the dogs had just left Immanuel Lutheran Church in Joplin shortly after 5 a.m. when it was hit by gunfire from a suspect police were pursuing.
The church van’s driver, Kenneth Eby, received multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the chest; Heidi Gustin, who was riding in the back seat, was struck in the arm. Both were transported to a hospital where they underwent surgery. Eby is listed in critical but stable condition; Gustin is in serious but stable condition.
A third passenger, Karen Mech, sustained cuts from shrapnel, police said. Her injuries were considered minor.
The dogs — Jackson and Louie — were also struck by gunfire. Jackson was grazed in the flap of his ear, while Louie took a bullet in his neck. Louie underwent surgery to remove the slug and is now recovering.

The official Black Lives Matter Toronto account responded with, “As our volunteer told you, our movement shirts are for Black-identified folks…”

forced exercise in depravity gay pride parade was hijacked by Black Lives Matter activists and it prompted a homosexual police officer to pen a letter expressing his disgust that Pride Toronto gave the movement honoured group status:
Dear Pride Toronto,
I am writing today to address concerns I have with your recent agreement with Black Lives Matter TO. I am particularly concerned with your willingness to remove all police floats and booths in future parades and community spaces. I should give you my background first.
I am a Toronto Police Service Constable, and a homosexual. I have been on the job eight years. Prior to becoming a Police Officer, I served in the Canadian Armed Forces and completed a tour in Kandahar, Afghanistan, in 2006-07.
I never “came out” while serving in the military. Though not for fear of persecution, I only told a select few about my orientation. I was still quite young and was simply not ready.
It wasn’t until 2012 that I decided to come out. I began to tell a few peers at work, and soon word spread. I can say with absolute pride that my peers, and my employers/senior management, have never made an inappropriate comment to me. I have never been made to feel discriminated against.
This year, 2016, marked a first for me. My first Pride parade. I would be working, nonetheless it would be my first one in any capacity. Wow, what an event. What a spectacle, a joining of everyone.
The 2016 pride events really opened my eyes to something. The support that I have from my peers and supervisors has been unwavering. When I saw all those floats and officers marching (hundreds), I realized that my employer fully supports this part of me, and so many others like me. As I stood post at Yonge and College, ensuring a safe atmosphere, Chief Mark Saunders came up to me. I had the opportunity to salute him, and I knew that I had a leader who was invested in this celebration of Pride.
LGBTQ cops have struggled for decades. I am fortunate, because it is their struggles in the past, that have made my orientation an irrelevant factor in my workplace interactions. Members of police services, and their employers (like RBC, Telus, Porter, etc.) have just as much right to participate as any other group.
Police officers are significantly represented in the LGBTQ community and it would be unacceptable to alienate and discriminate against them and those who support them. They too struggled to gain a place and workplace free from discrimination and bias.
I do not speak for the police, and I do not speak for the LGBTQ community. I speak as an individual, one who saw his first Pride, only to be excluded from the next.
Exclusion does not promote inclusion.
How about for the refreshing honesty of it all, this cop should just admit that this bold act of extortion overshadowed another bloated display of vulgarity and self-importance.
Is that too much to ask?
Identity politics has devolved the human race into tribes with competing interests, in this case who can be the biggest, whiniest blowhards who make spectacles of themselves while they argue who should be given more attention.
I would like post an older article from the Huffington Post (yes, I know) that – in graphic terms – gives one a good idea what happens when one vocal group of exhibitionists does not get their way:
(Sidebar: NSFW or younger viewers – bad language.)

This is why I say sit back and watch the train wreck that is leftists shredding one another unfold before one’s eyes. Neither party cares about “inclusion”. They do care deeply about who gets the limelight.
A leader of the Black Lives Matter movement warns that activists are prepared to protest the platform at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia next month, citing the congressional sit-in on the House floor last week over gun control as a possible model.
