Mental derangement: PETA president plans to donate her flesh for sizzling post-death human barbecue

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) President Ingrid Newkirk said she updated her will to include a request for her flesh to be donated for a "human barbecue," according to a Monday announcement.

"Flesh is flesh, and mine is given, not taken," Newkirk said. "[T]he thought of carving up human flesh for steaks might be just the thing to jolt diners into kindness."

Comment: No, it will not, and the fact that she would even say or consider such a thing speaks volumes. Newkirk has a few screws loose, to say the least.

The request detailed a desire for her flesh to be "Carve[d] out and sear some of her flesh to fry up with onions for a human barbecue." The will also asked for her body parts to be shipped off to various individuals and groups.

PETA, the world's largest animal rights organization, said, "the will ensures that even after her demise, Newkirk will continue to help animals and honors her commitment that 'my body be used in a manner that draws attention to needless animal suffering and exploitation.'"

"Newkirk's bodily bequests will inspire animal advocates while also encouraging everyone still slumbering in speciesism to wake up," PETA continued. Speciesism is the belief that all other animal species are inferior to humans.

Newkirk requests that her skin be peeled off and used to make leather goods, such as a belt and purse.

Comment: The lucky recipients include...
According to PETA, the 73-year-old activist now wants a piece of her neck cut off and sent to Britain's King Charles III to protest the monarchy's ties to pigeon racing, a sport in which losing birds' necks are often wrung.

Newkirk wants her lips cut off and sent to the president of the United States, to stop him "kissing up to the turkey industry" at the annual Thanksgiving turkey pardoning.

Newkirk's liver will ideally go to the president of France to protest the force-feeding of ducks and geese to produce foie gras, PETA said, while Twitter and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk will receive a chunk of Newkirk's heart to protest his lack of "empathy and a heart" in conducting animal experiments for his Neuralink technology.

The PETA founder has also asked for one of her legs to be "violently" broken and put on display during the Grand National, for one of her ears to be sent to Spain's King Felipe VI to protest the mutilation of bulls by matadors, and for her buttocks to be sent to the prime minister of Australia to highlight the flaying of lambs' hindquarters during shearing.

White Supremacy™ umbrella expands, now covers Mexicans, Indians, and Blacks

white supremacy
To the social justice-obsessed left, omnipresent White Supremacy™ is the boogeyman that infiltrates every aspect of life. This is literal; mathematics, punctuality, and the scientific method have all been decried at various times in recent history as the tools of White Supremacy™.

As I recently covered at Armageddon Prose, even waking up early is framed as a racist hate crime against BIPOCs.

Now, the White Supremacist™ label has expanded to include Mexicans, Indians, and blacks.

White Supremacy™ is truly, as it were, a "big tent" ideology.

Comment: It is truly the most diverse and inclusive ideology.

When a deranged Mexican shot up a Texas mall recently, The View token minority and Democrat operative Ana Navarro reminded everyone that blacks and Hispanics can be White Supremacist™ terrorists as well!

After Republican Tim Scott recently declared his candidacy for his party's 2024 presidential nomination, the leftist hive mind generated a cacophony of predictable Uncle Tom smears directed against black conservatives.

A Glendon woman has been charged in connection to multiple arsons in the Bonnyville and Lac La Biche areas.

The RCMP Forestry Crimes Unit has charged Audrey Elaine Dunham with 32 counts of arson following an in-depth investigation into a series of suspicious wildfires across the Lakeland.

On April 24, Bonnyville RCMP, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, and the Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority (BRFA) responded to multiple wildfires northwest of Bonnyville and east of Lac La Biche, within the Forest Protection Area.

The RCMP Forestry Crimes Unit, in collaboration with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, determined the cause of the fires had been arson and identified a suspect.

Roughly one month later, on May 27, local authorities responded to a report of seven wildfires near Hwy. 55 and Hwy. 881 in the MD of Bonnyville.

An investigation led authorities to 54-year-old Dunham.

At the time of her arrest, four wildfires were located nearby with a total of 19 wildfires started over the course of a few hours.

Comment: Police in Nova Scotia are also looking for arsonists:
As fires burn through the province of Nova Scotia, and other parts of eastern Canada, RCMP officers are on the lookout for arsonists that set some of the blazes.

RCMP in Pictou County, an area northeast of Halifax, are asking for the public's assistance after determining three separate fires were the result of arson.

The targets included a commercial building. It is not clear why the suspect or suspects chose this location.

This comes as the province tackles a series of large wildfires. 10 wildfires are still burning through Nova Scotia at the time of writing.

While a majority of wildfires in the province have not been linked to arsonists, reports of criminals setting fires during a supposed emergency has alarm bells going off.

There is no evidence the arson attacks in either Alberta or Nova Scotia were linked to climate change activists or left-wing extremists, but that possibility cannot be ruled out.

RCMP in Alberta have arrested several suspects in relation to arsons in the province in recent months.

Police officers in Grande Prairie, Alberta are currently on the lookout for at least one suspect in an arson attack that occurred on Jun. 1.
This wildfire season has come hard, and early, in Canada. Something is up.


Vermont high school forced to pay out $125,000 to girl told she must shower with trans-identified boy in female locker room

Blake and Travis Allen
A $125,000 settlement was reached in a lawsuit where the Orange Southwest School District and its co-principals at Randolph Union High School allegedly punished Blake and Travis Allen unlawfully for complaining about a male using the female locker room after volleyball practice.

According to The Herald, the compromise also restored Travis Allen as the middle school soccer coach and wiped Blake Allen's suspension off of her record. It notes that the district is compromising and "is not in any way to be construed as an admission of liability or wrongdoing."

Comment: Narcissists rarely admit they're wrong. The district is holding true to its pathological principles.

The case stems back to an incident where a trans-identified male was in the female locker room after volleyball practice, which was allowed under state law at the time. Witness statements from the incident vary, with some claiming the teen stopped and leered at the other girls in the shower, and others saying the individual froze and didn't know what to do.

The suit was filed for violations of Allens' First and Fourteenth Amendment rights by the school district after Travis Allen was removed from his position as a soccer coach for not using the trans individual's desired pronouns in a Facebook comment. Blake Allen was suspended from school after allegedly saying the teen was "literally a dude."

Comment: Suspended for stating a simple truth.

Superintendent of the Orange Southwest Supervisory District Layne Millington said in a statement, "The district is pleased to resolve the lawsuit at this early stage and return our focus to educating students."


'It means castration': Jordan Peterson and Elon Musk SLAM those who call child sex changes 'gender affirming care'

Psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson • Entrepreneur Elon Musk
Famed Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson pointed out on Twitter that the "phrase 'gender affirming' care is a criminally evil lie."

Elon Musk replied that "'gender-affirming care for minors' is pure evil."

Trans activists, as well as the Biden White House, all tout sex changes for minors as "gender affirming care," completely obfuscating the horror of what that really means: sterilization, castration, and life-altering changes to healthy bodies.

UK Labour leader's 'green energy superpower' plans will bankrupt households and cripple economy

Sir Keir Starmer

Sir Keir Starmer
At 47 U.S. cents per kilowatt hour (c/KWh) the U.K. has some of the highest household energy costs in the world. Countries like India (7 c/KWh) and China (8 c/KWh) and South Korea (9 c/KWh) pay around a fifth of U.K. prices. The U.S. at 18 c/KWh, France at 21 c/KWh, Singapore at 22 c/KWh and Japan at 25 c/KWh pay around half of the U.K.'s prices. Only Germany at a massive 52 c/KWh and Denmark at 53 c/KWh pay more than we do.

What effect will Sir Keir Starmer's ambition to turn Britain into a "clean energy superpower" and ban any further oil and gas exploration have on the price we will pay for our electricity, assuming he becomes our next Prime Minister?

In general (there are some exceptions such as Germany) the more coal a country uses for its energy, the cheaper that energy is (source Our World in Data):

Dozens of peacekeepers killed by militants - Ugandan president


FILE PHOTO: Al-Shabaab
At least 54 African Union (AU) peacekeepers died in a late May assault by al-Shabaab extremists on a base in Somalia housing Ugandan troops, Uganda's president said on Saturday.

"We discovered the lifeless bodies of 54 fallen soldiers, including a commander," Yoweri Museveni said in a statement posted to social media, referring to the May 26 dawn raid. He admitted last week that there had been Ugandan casualties in the attack, but had not specified the numbers.

Al-Shabaab, a Somali-based Salafi-jihadist militant organization which has waged an insurgency for more than a decade against Somalia's western-backed government, has claimed responsibility for the assault. The group said it killed 137 soldiers in the attack, which involved a suicide-bombing.

Unverified Wagner video claims drunk Russian military chief launched attack on group


Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin poses in Bakhmut with two of his mercenary fighters on May 25.
In a sign of rising tensions between Russia's Wagner mercenary group and the country's official armed forces, the private company led by Yevgeny Prigozhin has released a video of a captured Russian officer where he "confesses" to ordering an attack on the mercenaries.

The video, released by Wagner's press service on June 4, shows the apparent interrogation of a person who calls himself Colonel Roman Venevitin, the commander of the Russian Army's 72nd motorized rifle brigade. During the questioning, he says he ordered an attack on Wagner troops due to "personal enmity."

Just prior to the publishing of the video, Wagner's press service released a military report about a shootout between the mercenary group's fighters and regular Russian armed forces that allegedly took place on May 17 near Ukraine's eastern city of Bakhmut, the epicenter of heavy fighting between Russian troops -- backed by Wagner forces -- and Ukrainian armed forces for months.


Twenty Grim Realities Unearthed by Lockdowns

hydra-headed snake
It's common now to speak of the before times in contrast to the after times. The turning point was of course March 16, 2020, the day of 15 Days to Flatten the Curve, though authoritarian trends predate that. Rights were suddenly broadly throttled, even religious rights. We were told to conduct every aspect of our lives in accordance with the priorities of the bio-medical security state.

Very few people anticipated such a shocking development. It was the onset of a new state-conducted war and the enemy was something we could not see and hence could be anywhere. No one has ever doubted the omnipresence of potentially dangerous pathogens but now we were being told that life itself depended entirely on avoidance of them and the only guide going forward would be public-health authorities.

Everything changed. Nothing is the same. The trauma is real and lasting. The claim of "15 Days" was revealed to be a ruse. The emergency lasted three years and then some. The people and machinery that did this are still in power. The pick to head the CDC has a long track record of enabling and cheering the lockdowns and all that followed.

It's a helpful exercise to summarize the new things we've all discovered in these years. Together they account for why the world seems different and why we all feel and think differently now than we did just a few years ago.

Troubling questions surround BBC 'disinformation correspondent' Marianna Spring

Marianna Spring
Little is known about the history of Marianna Spring, the BBC's first "disinformation correspondent." But her record of churning out disinfo of her own in the service of British government objectives sends a bright red flag up over the new Verify project.

The launch of BBC Verify, "a new brand to address the growing threat of disinformation and build trust with audiences by transparently showing how BBC journalists know the information they are reporting," has raised questions about whether the British state broadcaster is ramping up plans to manufacture consent for official objectives while maligning dissent.

The endeavor is said to be "a highly specialized team with a range of forensic and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) capabilities that enable them to go beyond conventional newsroom techniques." In all, 60 BBC journalists are involved - including the "specialist disinformation correspondent" Marianna Spring.

The week after Verify's rollout was announced, the 27-year-old Spring took to airwaves to acquaint BBC Breakfast viewers with her new venture. She explained its mission was to "verify video, factcheck, counter disinformation, and analyze really complex stories so we can get to the truth of what's going on."
