A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.
As I’ve noted before, pornography is poison and it toxifies anything it touches. Each time a crisis hits, pornographers promptly create cultural poison to exploit that crisis. Racist porn—featuring Antebellum slave owner themes—is huge, for example. And as The Critic Mag pointed out, pornographers responded to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine by producing content that shows Ukrainian women and girls getting abused. Please, if this is your addiction—get rid of it. The porn industry is the most vile business in the world.
In this interview, one of Big Tech’s key founders tells Bari Weiss how social media moguls are laying the groundwork for a social credit system. This is interesting and disturbing stuff.
Chris Rock is the latest comedian to tackle the issue of abortion, and folks weren’t happy with what he said:
The only time the audience seemed to collectively cringe was when Rock decided to tackle the tricky subject of abortion. He mocked the notion of a “safe abortion,” noting that a “safe abortion is an abortion where only one person dies, I guess?” As for his own stance on abortion, Rock joked that he’s not pro-choice but “pro better choice.”
In other words, there’s no such thing as a safe abortion—because during a successful abortion, the baby is killed. That should make people cringe.
The DeSantis Administration in Florida has done a genius job of navigating the pushback to their Parental Rights in Education Law. The mayor of New York invited opponents of parental rights in education to move to New York. Governor Ron DeSantis’ spokeswoman Christina Pushaw responded: “Not surprising that the same mayor who forces 2-4 year olds to cover their faces all day is also apparently a proponent of gender theory for 5-9 year olds. Anyone who would move to New York because they’re upset over Florida’s commitment to parental rights or child protection is someone we are better off without.”
That is how it is done. It is long past time that we refused to allow the Left to determine the terms of the debate. They dubbed parental rights “don’t say gay”—and the governor and his team haven’t given an inch.
In case you’re wondering if such laws are necessary, please read this article from National Review: “A Mom’s Fight to Save Her Daughter from Trans Orthodoxy at School.”
This tweet speaks for itself. Surrogacy is evil.
All you need is $150K, a woman who will sell you her eggs, a woman who will rent you her womb, a dozen+ embryos so you can select the desired sex/viability & laws that don’t require background checks for adults who leave the hospital with unrelated children. #StopSurrogacyNow pic.twitter.com/1AS0g0j69f

Speaking of the “groomer” label, this story, from the feminist outlet Reduxx, highlights one of the reasons that those advocating for transgender policies should not be trusted:
A former councillor who argued for implementing gender neutral spaces in his community is on trial facing a series of child sex abuse charges.
David Smith, 33, represented the Coulby Newham ward on Middlesbrough Council following an election victory in May of 2019. Two months later, he faced a slew of child sex abuse-related charges. He stepped down from the Conservative Party in July of 2019, and ultimately resigned from the council altogether in 2020.
Read the whole thing.
This chilling piece at The Federalist explains how today’s sex-ed curriculum grooms children. Not for the faint of heart.
This is the pattern. Groups like GLAAD bully the living hell out of corporations; corporations cower before them and mirror their priorities; the Right notices and fights back; the media declare that the Right has initiated conflict with corporate America. https://t.co/P2v7RDZHck
