Simon Black’s weekly tally of absurdities, at sovereignman.com:
ust when you think it couldn’t get more bizarre… we give you this week’s absurdity.
Mural dedicated to WWII Vets cancelled for being too white
70 years ago, a decorated Veteran from World War II painted a mural on the campus of the University of Rhode Island to honor the fallen who lost their lives in the war.
The 95 year old artist is still alive today, to see his artwork being cancelled.
Students complained that the lack of diversity in the mural made them feel uncomfortable. There were too many white people depicted, and not enough minorities.
The university quickly bowed to the mob, covered up the painting, and plans to remove it entirely.
It’s ironic that in 2020, questioning the woke mob is liable to have you labeled a Nazi.
So a man who had the balls to fight the actual Nazis will have his memorial painting destroyed to appease the snowflakes who can’t even look at a painting without an emotional fit.
Former Marine commits suicide after the mob targets him
A Nebraska bar owner, Jake Gardner, was inside his bar when the windows were shattered by “peaceful protesters.”
Gardner, a former Marine who served in Iraq, went outside to try to diffuse the situation. He saw his father (a man in his 60s) shoved violently to the ground by peaceful protestors. But still, Gardner maintained his composure.
A video then shows that Gardner tried backing away from three men when they attacked him.
Gardner ends up on the ground, with an attacker on top of him. Gardner fired his weapon, and the attacker died.
The county prosecutor reviewed the video evidence and confirmed that Gardner acted properly and in self defense. The video confirms this. And he stated that he would NOT charge Gardner.
But the mob was not willing to accept this outcome. So they surrounded the courthouse and peacefully protested… at which point the Grand Jury caved and decided to charge Gardner with manslaughter.
This sadly appeared to put Gardner over the edge. And he took his own life last week.
Escaped Prisoner in UK tried to turn himself in seven times
An British inmate incarcerated in the UK recently escaped; apparently he was worried about his mother and wanted to visit her.
But once the visit was over, he was ready to go back to prison and serve out the remainder of his sentence.
