The Left’s Bisexual, Self-Obsessed Narcissistic Superman Reflects Itself
Source: PJ Media
Seen:    2021-10-18 12:19 AM (ET)
I shake my head quite a bit these days, and did so recently over the recent news that the latest incarnation of Superman will be bisexual. As one reader pointed out, the revamped version of the Man of Steel is the son of the original Superman, and not Superman himself. But the move to shift the brand name to a more woke perspective is undeniable. The new Superman is to be gender fluid and concerned about social justice, not with the apprehension of criminals or the prevention of crime itself. Once again, the Left decides that it must drag down something to serve its purposes rather than create something new.

BEIJING—China's economy grew at the slowest pace in a year in the third quarter, hurt by power shortages, supply bottlenecks, and sporadic COVID-19 outbreaks, raising heat on policymakers amid rising jitters over the property sector. Data released on Monday showed gross domestic product (GDP) grew 4.9 percent in July-September, the weakest pace since the third quarter of 2020 and slowing from 7.9 percent in the second quarter. That marked a further deceleration from the 18.3 percent expansion in the first quarter, when the year-on-year growth rate was heavily flattered by the very low comparison seen during the COVID-induced slump of early 2020.

Experts have urged Australians to be cautious as lockdowns end and the country reopens, to lessen pressure on hospitals. Former deputy chief health officer Nick Coatsworth said people should keep getting tested and wear masks in certain settings to help the healthcare system. "We have to be cautious as policymakers that we take prudent steps out of lockdown," he told the Nine Network on Monday. "Because we want to maintain the capacity of our healthcare system, which as we know is stretched." Coatsworth said Australia's experience would be grounded in a world-leading vaccination rate, which would underpin what happens during the reopening phase. "I'm hoping that the hospitalisations themselves will stay down," he said. "Cases may well increase as we start to mingle in the community, ...

ATLANTA—A couple of clutch swings from breakout slugger Austin Riley got the underdog Atlanta Braves off to a fast start in the NL Championship Series. Riley homered and drove in the winning run with a single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Atlanta a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 on Saturday night. Blake Treinen struck out Freddie Freeman to open the ninth before giving up Ozzie Albies' bloop single to center field. Albies stole second and Riley followed with his line drive into the left-field corner. "That was my mindset—put something in play and see what happens,” Riley said after delivering the first walk-off hit of his career.

Woke California Prof Claims Jihad Terrorism Is (What Else?) All Our Fault

The propaganda is all so drearily predictable. The establishment media seems to have made it a foremost priority to do everything it can to absolve Islam of all responsibility for crimes done in its name and in accord with its teachings. And so it came as no surprise when Yahoo News on Sunday ran a piece by Mark Fathi Massoud, a professor of politics and legal studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz titled “Don’t blame Sharia for Islamic extremism -- blame colonialism.” Of course. Really, by now we all know that everything bad in the world is the responsibility of white males. We just need Yahoo News and its colleagues to fill in the details once in a while.
