Recently, I devoted a lot of space to old men who had recently made me ashamed to be an old man. They were a pedophile, ex-Archbishop Theodore McCarrick; a socialist, Pope Francis; and a potty-mouthed Hollywood has-been, scumbag-Peter Fonda.

Today, I’m calling out a couple of women who would make me ashamed to be a woman, if I were a woman. As I’m not, I have to settle for being ashamed as a fellow American and a member of the human race.

I am referring to Stephanie Wilkinson, co-owner of the Red Hen restaurant, who booted Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, her husband, and the others in their party, out of her establishment. As if that’s not bad enough, even though Mr. and Mrs. Sanders decided to call it an early evening and went straight home, the other four crossed the street and entered a different restaurant. Although the quartet had nothing to do with the Trump administration, Ms. Wilkinson followed them and called for others to join her in taunting them.

And these are the very same ignoramuses who scream the loudest about McCarthyism and guilt by association every chance they’ve had for the past 70 years.

But at least Ms. Wilkinson owns a business that may suffer dire consequences if enough people, whatever their part affiliation, decide they’d rather not encourage that sort of obnoxious behavior by dining there.

Rep. mad-Maxine Waters is a different kettle of fish altogether. Here she is, a member of Congress, sworn not only to abide by the Constitution, but defend it against enemies, foreign and domestic, calling for Americans to hound and threaten people for no other reason than they vote for Republicans or serve at the President’s pleasure in his cabinet.

One of my readers considered Rep. mad-Waters guilty of sedition, which the dictionary defines as “incitement of discontent or rebellion, especially in speech or writing, against a government.”

I’m not sure that mad-Waters’ intemperate remarks rise to that level. At least I hope not because, unless the statute of limitations runs out a lot quicker than I believe it does, I suspect I was equally guilty during liar-nObama’s administration.

And you can imagine what hell life behind bars would be for someone like myself, who is short, affable and cute as a bug. I’m sure I don’t have to draw you a picture. Those big tough mugs would keep me busy 24/7 writing letters to their mothers, girlfriends and lawyers. I wouldn’t have a minute to myself.

⦿ A friend sent me a video of Muslims causing havoc in Sweden. Sweden used to compete with Disneyland to be the happiest place on earth. But, ever since the EU rolled out the red carpet for the swine of the Middle East, the crime rate has soared. Rapes in particular, which used to be all but unknown in the country have gone through the roof because the degenerates regard any woman not wrapped in a bedsheet fair game. And because the left-wing government doesn’t wish to be tarred as bigoted, the authorities have ordered the police to stand down and not offend the ungrateful guests by entering so-called “no-go” zones.

After viewing the horrific video, I let my friend know that I wasn’t as moved as he imagined I would be.

“I’ve known about the Swedes and their ostrich-like behavior for years now. I used to feel sorry for them, for the Germans, the Dutch, the French and the rest of them, but I stopped when I noticed that they kept re-electing the same morons who invited in the rabble in the first place. I realize that the Swedish government tries to bury the bad news, but Sweden is a very small country. The Swedes all know what’s happening, just the same as the German civilians knew what the Nazis were doing to the Jews, the Catholics, the Gypsies, the cripples and the homosexuals.”

⦿ Speaking of scandals being covered up for propaganda purposes, a former Marine recently shared the news that there was more to the near-sinking of a Navy ship than was initially reported.

In June of 2017, the USS Fitzgerald was speared by a Philippine container ship. The collision was duly reported, but not the identities of the two people most responsible, the Officer of the Deck (OOD) and the Tactical Action Officer (TAO).

Not until a year later, when the final reports were made and the guilty parties court-martialed did the truth come out that the OOD was named Sarah Coppock and the TAO was someone named Natalie Combs.

Apparently, these two officers would normally be in nearly constant communication with each other, but apparently the two women, for whatever reason — a man perhaps? — weren’t speaking to each other!

According to someone who should know, the damage control officer, normally, the biggest and strongest man aboard, able to close hatches, shore up damaged chambers with timbers, was also a woman. In the case of the USS Fitzgerald, she handled the aftermath of the collision remotely, not lifting a finger herself.

The conclusion of my correspondent is that standards have been lowered in the military for the sake of “gender integration,” which was a major Pentagon policy push during the liar-nObama administration.

Apparently, it was the same kind of social engineering that led to the death of Kara Hultgreen, a Navy pilot who died in a 1994 crash of an F-14. Investigation found that she had been allowed to proceed in her training even after several errors that would have meant an automatic washout for a male pilot. But the liar-Clinton administration was pushing for female fighter pilots, which led to a competition between the Navy and the Air Force to place women in combat roles.

As he summed up: “It’s not necessary to believe that women shouldn’t be combat pilots or Navy captains to believe that lowering standards for the sake of quotas is a lousy idea.”

Most people finally came around to agreeing that quotas were wrong when they were used to keep Jews out of medical schools and certain professions. God only knows how long it’s going to take for people to wise up to the fact that lowering standards just so we can have more black air traffic controllers or women in a position to achieve promotion in the military is not only dumb, it’s dangerous.

⦿ Bert Black, the sage of Silver Spring, Maryland, has a bit of folk wisdom to share on a somewhat related matter.

“When most normal people discover they are riding a dead horse, they dismount. However, those in the government tend to adopt more advanced strategies. For instance, they may buy a bigger whip. They might change riders. Or they might appoint a committee to study the horse.

“On occasion, they might arrange to visit other countries on a fact-finding tour to see how other cultures deal with dead horses. They might reclassify the dead horse as living-impaired. In a pinch, they could hire outside contractors to ride the dead horse. If that didn’t work, they might consider harnessing several dead horses together in order to increase speed.

“They have even been known to provide additional funding to increase the dead horse’s performance; or simply declare that inasmuch as the dead horse doesn’t have to be fed, it is less costly and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do those other horses who can actually move.

“If all else fails, they will simply rewrite the expected performance requirements of all horses.”

Also, if there’s a dummycrats-Democrat in the White House, you can bet an executive order will be handed down stating that in the future, the only horses in the federal stables will be mares.
