“When Darrell Brooks allegedly drove through that Christmas parade, he was out on $1,000 bond two days prior for allegedly running over the mother of his child.”

Can we please, from now on, just laugh and spit in the faces of people who claim that large numbers of people are in prison for getting caught with marijuana?

This guy’s rap sheet is 15 pages of shit that I can’t even believe. Who the f*** are these people???

George Floyd robbed a pregnant woman at gunpoint. Why is that person even allowed in society? I’m sorry but you rob a pregnant woman at gunpoint and you’re done. Goodbye. Don’t need you ever again.

Joseph Rosenbaum should have been executed by the state long before the Rittenhouse incident. Have you read about his crimes? The guy was literally subhuman. He should have been hung from an overpass.

I have a theory that our relatively high prison population is actually a result of being too lenient with criminals. Basically we enable them until it gets so insane that we have no choice but to lock them up.

How many more of these high profile incidents do we need to see where the perpetrator was essentially Satan incarnate before we demand reform. More people in prison for much longer. That is what we need.

I am so sick of finding out that another piece of human scum was apparently being allowed to stand next to my mom at the grocery store because Democrats are emotionally overwhelmed by the grossest and most demented version of ‘empathy’.

Nellie- appreciate your willingness to consider reader comments and reevaluate your stance on issues in follow up TGIF posts. So refreshing!

Thanks for the chuckle, these folks are just loony. Happy post-Thanksgiving, Bari.

I absolutely love this weekly feature - nothing paints the picture of how wildly brazen the MSM is with it's agenda better than seeing all of the week's most outlandish positions in a single piece. I chuckled throughout (although none of it is really a laughing matter).

Happy Thanksgiving, Bari! Thank you for being a voice for reason in a sea of madness:)!

Thumbs up on these new TGIF columns.

It's long been known that nursery schools need to see adults pronouncing words to get the hang of it themselves. Now that in some ultrablue areas the 3 year olds wear masks all the time, they are having trouble pronouncing words. Too bad scientists don't take developmental psychology enough as a discipline.

This week's email content is terrific. Well done, Nellie - solid work on every element. Although I think you still get *this* part wrong:

"I objected to the fact that Republican Sen. John Kennedy was using her childhood—she was born in Kazakhstan and was a member of a group called the Young Communists—to indict her as an adult."

Kennedy was *not* using her childhood - her birthplace - to indict her as an adult. Her membership in the Young Commies was *not* when she was a child, as "child" is generally understood (ok, as *I* generally understand it to mean pre-teenager).

Now, Omarova's membership may not have been a conscious, explicit choice; it sounds as if it's an automatic element of *every* Soviet's life at a certain age and until a certain age. Perhaps that's true.

But please dispense with the falsehood that Kennedy's indictment had *anything* to do with her birthplace. I've seen (as best as they're available, which is not perfect, so I could be wrong here...), that is, I've seen the transcript and videos of their exchange, and at no time does Kennedy use the fact of Omarova's *birthplace* to attack her qualifications for the post.

One need never wait for more than a single day to see The New York Times' version of reality on full display. Today's gem: a front-page story headlined "G.O.P. Cements Hold on Legislatures in Battleground States." Reference is blandly made to the Campaign Legal Center, whose chief legal officer quoted complaining about the preponderance of state legislatures being Gerrymandered into full Republican control. You have to go elsewhere on the Internet to learn that CLC is a left-wing operation funded by George Soros, staffed by progressives staunchly in support of Democrats and progressives. But God forbid that such an organization was backed by the dreaded Koch brothers. In the Times, that information would be in the same sentence citing the organization.

“We apologize deeply for the email that was sent today. $14.92 was our average donation amount this week“

Math is bad then?!

I lived in San Francisco's Union Square area in the 80s and 90s, the only crime I ever read about was a laughably memorable incident in which one hapless thief held up a jewelry store and escaped with priceless looking diamonds and gems. As it turned out, all the stones in that store were cubic zirconia.

But the recent flash mobs of dozens of thieves are no laughing matter. Who wants to risk a trip to Macy's or Bloomingdale's when dangerous criminals are on the loose? The city's mayor needs to do much more than just make it a little harder to park near the stores. And San Francisco needs to ax its woke and leftist district attorney, Chesa Bouin, the son of 60's radicals from the Weather Underground.

As I called it….

40% of Berkeley freshman of Asian descent?

Eliminating the SAT was a push by the wealthy and privileged to reduce the competition, making it easier for their children to get into Berkeley and UCLA.

Would not envy a HS math teacher at a school in an affluent neighborhood. The pressure to grade inflate would be onerous.

Seems like Nellie had an epiphany this last week and might be waking up from the woke. Everyone of the stories she highlights shows the absurdity of the left.

Thanks, Nellie! I’m loving your articles!

It seems very probable that the Waukesha massacre was racially motivated, i.e. a black killer targeted white people. So of course the whole thing must be described by the media as a "crash," with an SUV identified as the perpetrator. When you compare the actual behavior of today's journalists with their glowing self-characterizations, the hypocrisy involved is enough to gag a maggot.

And now that I've gotten that off my chest, kudos to Ms. Bowles for correcting herself on the matter of Saule Omarova. In general there are no more strident critics of "scientific socialism" than those who have fled from it. Professor Omarova, however, is a rare exception. Not only do her views on banking and finance echo the Leninist doctrine of "democratic centralism," but she has in the past rhapsodized over the defunct USSR's commitment to social equality and "gender equity"—in contrast to the supposedly sorry US record. The claim that such blessings can be dispensed by a totalitarian police state is both comical and sinister.

Finally, those of us who make it our business to lampoon, parody and mock the Woke are running into trouble. The Women's March $14.92 apology self-lampoons, self-parodies and self-mocks. There's nothing left to add...

The Dems were stupid to make Rittenhouse's attackers their mascots. Republicans would be just as stupid to make Rittenhouse one of their mascots. So, I guess he will be a mascot... sigh...
