A columnist for The New York Times has published an op-ed that claims the Looney Tunes skunk Pepe Le Pew 'normalized rape culture.' Charles M. Blow made his critical comments in an article titled 'Six Seuss Books Bore a Bias' published in the Grey Lady in the wake of news that certain beloved Dr. Suess children's books were getting 'cancelled' for racist depictions. In the article, Blow wrote: 'Some of the first cartoons I can remember included Pepé Le Pew, who normalized rape culture; Speedy Gonzales, whose friends helped popularize the corrosive stereotype of the drunk and lethargic Mexicans.

I wonder if Mr. Blow has ever considered whether vulgar rap music lyrics might have somehow contributed to the rape culture in the inner city. Nope. It was Pepe Le Pew all along.

#4 The Mandalorian' Star Gina Carano was fired for listing her preferred pronoun as “boop/bob/beep” (like R2D2). Trans found it mocking. I'm not sure about how fictional robots felt. Her career is over. Trivia: Pepe Le Pew is based on Pépé le Moko from Algiers (1938) - staring the brilliant and beautiful Hedy Lamarr who also invented Spread Spectrum Frequency Hopping. She never got a penny because if wasn't useful for another 50 years and she died in poverty. If only Bluetooth were invented in 1940.

Allowing boys who claim to be girls into ladies' locker rooms and showers would probably be more dangerous than a lovesick, stalking cartoon skunk. Rap music and drag queen story hour sessions are hunky-dorry, in the eyes of liberals. In other news, Wile E. Coyote never influenced a single child to drop an anvil on a roadrunner.

Didn't the object of Pepe's affection always just squirm away from his advances? I don't remember him ever succeeding. And I think the Mexican stereotype was well-known far before Speedy Gonzales came around.

My God! Everyone reads too much into these things. Pepe LePew is an amorous skunk who pursues a cat that looks like a skunk. She of course, has no interest in a smelly skunk because she’s a cat! The situations are hilarious and Mel Blanc's voice of Pepe with the French accent makes it even funnier. Can’t we enjoy these cartoons for what they are meant to be—funny! Our education system has turned people with skulls full of mush into the 17th century Puritans of Massachusetts. They are unhappy people to begin with because they had unhappy childhoods and want to make the rest of us as miserable as they are. As they say, “Misery loves company!”

Pepe Le Pew normalized rape culture? What kind of sick mind sees that in a cartoon? The whole Pepe Le Pew cartoon was based on the premise of misidentification. A skunk with a French accent falls in love with a cat that accidently had white paint down it's back. Talk about jumping the shark.

This is really simple. Blow is a "useful idiot" stirring up dissent and deflecting attention from real issues. He isn't smart enough to think of this nonsense himself; He has "community organizers" telling him what to write.

"...drunk and lethargic Mexicans..." Really? Speedy was never drunk nor lethargic. Being the Fastest Mouse in all Mexico requires WORK to 'stay on top of your game,' so calling Speedy a drunk and lethargic, lazy is in itself a lie and a stereotype of all Mexicans. So Mr. Blow: YOU'RE the one who's RACIST. BTW - I'm Hispanic and I've never found Speedy offensive. In fact he outwits his enemies with his cunning speed. Speedy's been the target of previous attempts to cancel him - but from what I understand he's revered in Mexican culture just because he manages to outwit attackers. These are imaginary cartoon characters that are the figments of some long-gone animator's ideas. We've popularized them because we've grown up watching these cartoons since we were kids. This DOESN'T mean we need to be childish or stupid enough to imitate their behavior. You're a DOOFUS Mr. Blow.

Was the Johnson & Johnson vaccine developed from aborted fetal cell lines? It is a question many of you have asked the VERIFY team after the Catholic church issued a statement warning Catholics that the shot is “morally compromised”. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Committee on Pro-life Activities posted a statement online and social media. It said, in part, “The Johnson & Johnson vaccine … was tested and is produced with abortion-derived cell lines raising … moral concerns. Therefore, if one has the ability to choose a vaccine, Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccines should be chosen over Johnson & Johnson.”

President Biden on Sunday signed a sweeping executive order instructing federal agencies to advance Democrat Party objectives for U.S. elections, using the agencies to provide information about voter registration and vote-by-mail applications, including for federal prisoners. The Biden administration asserted the federal government plays a primary role in providing education about voter registration and combating “misinformation.” His administration is devoted to promoting and defending “the right to vote for all Americans who are legally entitled to participate in elections,” he states in the order. One of the main objectives listed in the executive action is providing prisoners with educational materials related to voting and facilitating voter registration for eligible prisoners...

Old Communist genocide denier dogs can't be expected to learn new tricks. Here, courtesy of the Under Fire account is Noam Chomsky discussing "Black Lives Matter, Universalism, and Hopes for the Left" at the Einstein Forum. After mumbling his way through a condemnation of "wage slavery", Chomsky bizarrely claims that capitalism is worse than Stalin. "People have to rent themselves to a tyranny so that most of their waking lives, they're under totalitarian control of a kind that Stalin couldn't dream of.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald has criticized MSNBC host Joy Reid for what he calls 'conspiratorial derangement' after she claimed a senator was a Russian agent. The journalist, part of a team that won a Pulitzer for reports about government surveillance programs based on leaks by Edward Snowden, slammed Reid on Friday for stating that Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, was acting on behalf of Russia. Reid was mocking the senator who has come under fire himself for questioning accounts of what what occurred on January 6 at the Capitol, but Greenwald did not find Reid's description amusing.

Prosecutors in Kentucky have moved to permanently drop charges against Breonna Taylor's boyfriend in connection with the bungled police raid that killed her. The Commonwealth's Attorney for Jefferson County filed a motion this week seeking to dismiss with prejudice the criminal charges against Kenneth Walker. A case dismissed with prejudice cannot be brought back before a court. Walker had been charged with attempted murder of a police officer and assault for shooting at officers as they opened fire on the couple while serving a narcotics search warrant at Taylor's home on March 13, 2020.

In response, the federal government may reopen a consent decree that has informed the department's hiring policy for roughly 40 years. But Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley is fighting the potential change to that hiring policy, saying that, without the decree, Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac may have never been hired in the first place. Tom Burns, an attorney representing Erik Kohler, says his client was initially passed over for a promotion to sergeant in July because of his race.

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.
