Socks of a Clown: A Hogtown Song Parody

Well, if there's a smi-ile on his face
It's only there to bamboozle the public.
But when it comes down to Justin's socks
Well, honey, that's not a diff'rent subject.
"Happy Eid" and LGBTs:
They are just like chalk and cheese.
It shows he's so dumb; oh, yeah, he's as dumb as they come.
It's a dumbness that's makin' me numb.
Well, there are lame things known to man
But ain't nothing lamer than
The socks of a clown
When a crowd is around...

If a Tree Falls in a Hezbo Forest, Does It Make a Sound?

It probably depends on whether or not it sets off one of those rockets "hidden" in a Hezbo "nature reserve" along the Lebanon-Israel border.

"Communism for Kids"? Who Thinks THAT Is a Good Idea?

The Los Angeles Review of Books, where I found the following, does, apparently:
BINI ADAMCZAK’S Communism for Kids isn’t just for kids. The book is meant for readers of all ages, but its style is deliberately naïve. Adamczak addresses everyone as children in order to awaken their childlike sense of imagination and ability to dream. She reminds them that the world has not always been this way, and need not stay as it is. Adopting the language of make-believe, Adamczak introduces the problem posed by capitalism so those still young at heart might arrive at a solution. “[G]enuine fairy tales,” the Marxist critic Siegfried Kracauer maintained during the Weimar years, “are not stories about miracles but rather announcements of the miraculous advent of justice.”
You know what's make-believe? The glories of utopian Marxism. The real life story, of course, is a litany of terror, despotism and piles of bloody corpses.

Dreams of a "Gender Neutral" O Canada Dead--For Now

Can't say I'm sorry to hear the news.

Eye On a Crazy Al Quds Day Seethe-a-thon

Toronto's al Quds Day is a reminder of the extent of Islamic extremism in Canada

The Toronto Public Library Caters to the "Resist 150" Party Poopers

The TPL--it's just sooo damn "progressive"/virtuous (scroll down):
Resist 150
As part of these Canada 150 events, Toronto Public Library acknowledges and remembers that Indigenous nations existed and thrived on these lands and territories thousands of years before the incorporation of Canada in 1867.
We are committed to ensuring that Indigenous voices and perspectives are represented and involved in our Canada 150 events, and in our programming throughout the year. We also respect and support the decision of Indigenous groups who have chosen not to participate in Canada 150 events as expressions of resistance against colonialism. For many Indigenous peoples, Canada 150 is a celebration of the wrongs committed against Indigenous peoples by Canada. The perspective of some in the Resist 150 movement is that Canada 150 signifies 150 years of broken treaties, mistreatment and a history of abuse that to some, constitutes genocide. As we celebrate these Canada 150 events, Toronto Public Library acknowledges that as Canadians, we are all treaty people, and that we are all agents in the process of Reconciliation. 
Gee, I don't think that disclaimer is nearly abject enough. I'm sure if they gave it another stab, they could find a way to make it sound even more self-abnegating and cringingly servile. 😏
