Chinese food

We not only ate Chinese on Christmas Day, as is customary for North American Jews, but we ate Chinese on Christmas Eve as well. Orange chicken and fried and white rice and potstickers and spring rolls and beef and broccoli, made by the loving Catholic hands of my sister-in-law and her wife. Love this note from the Net circa 2017:

Which isn’t, actually, about G-d, though he could probably use a good laugh. It’s more about Jews not being able to find any other open restaurants on Christmas Day. Though Jews and Christmas go together pretty well.

Lawless Biden

“Biden’s Justice Department [is] running roughshod over the First Amendment, threatening to investigate and prosecute parents for protesting against school boards and teachers who insist on indoctrinating children with the cultural Marxism beloved by Democrats.”

Shut up, he explained.

UPDATE: Return fire from “almost two dozen parent organizations”: “The parent organizations pointed out that the [National School Board Association’s] call for the federal government to use its power against parents was in itself a menacing and ‘thinly veiled threat, intended to intimidate into silence and submission the very constituents that [the NSBA] members ostensibly represent.’ I mean, what else would you call asking the president to sic the Department of Justice, the FBI, Homeland Security, the Secret Service Assessment Center, and the Postal Service on America’s parents?'” Politics, of course.

Texas Independence Day

Celebrating the 185th anniversary of Texas Independence and the fall of the Alamo. With one little problem, the attempted canceling of the whole enterprise by the chief historian of Texas State Historical Association.

“Walter Buenger, Ph.D. and TSHA chief historian, recently slammed the Alamo as an insignificant battle then and a monument to white supremacy now. The facts don’t support that at all.”

Rush Limbaugh on how different the red and blue states are:

“There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.”

Austin murder rate leads the nation

Not in raw numbers, but Austin’s homicide rate has increased about 64%. And that’s tops, says an analysis by the Wall Street Journal.

“Thanks to ‘defund the police’ and the Democrat cities going along with it, violent crime including homicide is surging in most of America’s largest cities. While the raw numbers are terrible for Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and other very large cities, it’s Austin, Texas, that’s leading by percentage-increase year over year.”

Murderous BLM

I didn’t see it coming, the perpetual racisms of the week, however fake or laughable, that kept on piling up in recent years. The Smollett hoax, among them. Leading to what we have now, the murderous Black Lives Matter.

They are the rioters, the looters, the burners. Antifa is small potatoes, comparatively. Mere anarchists. BLM are self-declared Marxists, full-on communists. Who, despite having the perfect whining name, couldn’t care less about black lives. Defunding the police, for instance, will be worst for black neighborhoods, which already are crime-ridden. See Chicago.
