Icelandic double standards on LGBT

Well done Iceland. How woke to stoop to childish antics and show open disrespect to the deputy leader of the most powerful nation in the world. Do the Icelandic president and corporations honestly believe that trolling Mike Pence (regardless of his personal beliefs) with rainbow flags and bracelets will somehow make him change his views or persuade those that support him to abandon him? So the way to show the moral high ground is to seek to diplomatically humiliate.

Here is betting that the Icelandic leadership and business community don’t fly the rainbow flag when dignitaries from Pakistan, Guyana, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Myanmar, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka or Egypt visit, a small selection of countries that criminalize LGBT activity, unlike the US. Of course, Iceland has received glowing accolades for the stunt on Twitter which probably speaks volumes of credibility. This is what cowardice looks like.

Human Dignity Trust lists the following stats with respect to the criminalisation of LGBT people.

72 jurisdictions criminalise private, consensual, same-sex sexual activity. The majority of these jurisdictions explicitly criminalise sex between men via ‘sodomy’, ‘buggery’ and ‘unnatural offences’ laws. Almost half of them are Commonwealth jurisdictions.

44 jurisdictions criminalise private, consensual sexual activity between women using laws against ‘lesbianism’, ‘sexual relations with a person of the same sex’ and ‘gross indecency’. Even in jurisdictions that do not explicitly criminalise women, lesbians and bisexual women have been subjected to arrest or threat of arrest.

12 jurisdictions in which the death penalty is imposed or at least a possibility for private, consensual same-sex sexual activity. At least 6 of these implement the death penalty – Iran, Northern Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen – and the death penalty is a legal possibility in Afghanistan, Mauritania, Pakistan, Qatar and UAE. Executions have been reported in ISIS-held territory in Iraq and Syria in recent years.

15 jurisdictions criminalise the gender identity and/or expression of transgender people, using so-called ‘cross-dressing’, ‘impersonation’ and ‘disguise’ laws. In many more countries transgender people are targeted by a range of laws that criminalise same-sex activity and vagrancy, hooliganism and public.

Iceland trades with many of these anti-LGBT countries. Perhaps Iceland should put an embargo on those nations. Why not ditch 6.8% exports and 5.8% imports with the US if they feel such abhorrence against America?

Here is a picture of Ambassador of Sri Lanka to Iceland, Prof. Arusha Cooray with President Gudni Thorlacius Johannesson of Iceland. Sri Lanka a country that can imprison someone of LGBT background for 10 years. Maybe corporate Iceland didn’t get the memo to fly LGBT flags? Ambassador Cooray and President Jóhannesson discussed the potential for increased collaboration between the two countries in the areas of tourism, fisheries, tea, arts, culture and sports. Wait, no discussions on LGBT Mr President?

The greater irony is that Mike Pence’s boss has openly advocated that nations which criminalise LGBT seek to repeal such human rights violations.

And yes, President Trump is hardly the high watermark as goes diplomacy. That doesn’t mean two wrongs make a right.

People say CM is not woke enough…not anymore

People say CM is not “woke” enough. Maybe they’re right?!

Lucky for CM today, Meghan Markle’s biography was not merely discounted to the sticker price of $6.99 but $1.99 at the register! Who better to learn from about all the pet causes of the left? Let the healing begin!

#DontHaveToGoBrokeToBeWoke ?

If it doesn’t sink in, CM can always keep ’em guessing if this is on the desk.

Advertisers’ own goal as Alan Jones’ ratings remain top

So Alan Jones’ 17.1% share (-0.3%) on morning radio should be confirmed with the following month’s data. ABC came in second at 11.5% (+1.6%) according to GfK.

If we go back in time (Jan-Mar 2019 ) survey Jones’ breakfast program rated 15.0% (-2.9%). He has been as high as 19.0% (Jul-Sep 2018) figures. So recent relatives are important in giving a fair appraisal on popularity or any “hit” from Jacinda Ardern commentary.

Anyone that listens to Jones would hardly be surprised by his brand which has kept him #1 for so long.

Till, cue the lefties looking to celebrate plummeting ratings on a quarterly basis in the next survey and the self congratulatory back slapping pointing to their hard work in bullying spineless advertisers to fold to the likes of Mad Fucking Witches (which says something about the marketing departments to follow any campaign led by a group of radical feminists with profanity in the name). Talk about double standards.

Once again corporations are free to choose how they advertise. If Jones’ audience is relatively stable and #1 (presumably the right targets for companies that advertise), what purpose has sanctimoniously folding to a cabal of empty headed lefties who probably don’t even make a meaningful contribution to these brands or listen to Jones? Absolutely none. Complete own goal and sort of hilarious to be given lectures on morality by a bank or a mattress company that promotes the likes of the expletive laden, misandrist bile spewed by Clementine Ford.

To shareholders, the hope is that advertising is spent where its most effective in converting to revenue, not on proving they are answering questions no one of relevance to the business was even asking.

Morons of Moreland

It seems the woke lefties in Melbourne based Moreland City Council have proposed a meat ban on Mondays to help with the climate emergency.

What a surprise the Greens-led loonies have sought to virtue signal in this way. At least one of the conservative councilors, Oscar Yildiz, said the ban was “pathetic.”

Yildiz continued with,

This is just them chipping away gradually at things, and this is what they do…They’re trying to get rid of parking down Sydney Road…They’ll just do a trial and then say ‘you know what, we surveyed three people and 95 per cent of them said yes, so let’s get rid of parking on Sydney Road!

CM is sure their carbon footprint will be cut by 0.000000000000000000000000001%.

How do these people get voted in? Utter time wasters.

Here is betting these Greens councilors haven’t a clue on anything to do with the climate emergency or methane in the atmosphere caused by flatulent livestock.

Brain dead award the brainwashed

GQ Magazine has awarded Greta Thunberg with its Game Changer Of The Year award. Can we cynically argue that GQ is hijacking the stardom of the 16yo for their own commercial success?

CM has said for the longest time that she is indeed brave to do what she does and absolutely no criticism lies at her feet. What a shame she is the product of brainwashing from activist teachers and parents. The way political leaders fawn over her. Probably speaks volumes that so many of today’s world leaders have no progeny (France’s Macron – no kids. Former UK PM Theresa May – no kids. The Netherlands PM Mark Rutte – no kids. Swedish PM Kjell Stefan Löfven- no biological kids. Luxembourg PM Xavier Bettel – no kids. Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon – no kids. Former EC President Jean-Claude Juncker – no kids, Japan’s PM Abe also has no children) meaning they don’t share the feelings experienced by an overwhelming majority of parents who eye roll whenever their 16yo pretend to be experts on any subject.

At least she channelled Melania Trump for her photoshoot. The ultimate form of irony.

As she sails across the Atlantic to the Americas in a boat part-owned by someone who owns a large chunk of a private helicopter transport fleet, we already knew her impact on a scheduled flight would have given her more face time. Note CM calculated her footprint would amount to 0.0000000000007314% of CO2.

Will organizers be waiting at the docks with a fleet of fossil fuel charged Teslas to whisk her away? As long as she uses the Aland Index to calculate the carbon footprint of her hotel stay to minimize her impact on the environment. If the hotel comps her bill the Aland Index will output zero emissions. For the sake of the planet let’s hope they do.

73 days to drop fossil fuels

73 days? CM thought we had 12 years. If that’s the outcome then it’s time to party hard. Well 73 days actually equates to the upcoming national election in Canada although Canadian Green’s leader Elizabeth May has made the bold prediction that unless Canada transitions off fossil fuels by the election date it faces unsafe levels of heat and a climate catastrophe.

Will Canadians be so afraid of heat that they’ll vote in such lunacy given the overwhelming drubbings handed out to parties with a “carbon” agenda in provinces like Alberta and Ontario?

The only hot air Canadians need worry about is that coming from her mouth.

Universal pulls ads of movie where liberal elites hunt deplorables

Universal Pictures has pulled ads of movie, ‘The Hunt‘ – where liberal elites hunt deplorables for sport – in the wake of the recent shootings.

A liberal character in the movie can be heard asking, “Did anyone see what our ratf***er-in-chief just did?” No guessing who he was referring to.

Another responds, “At least the hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.

Apparently it’s satire. Hollywood is always a great reference point for hypocrisy.
