WTF: Lego Erases Law Enforcement from Playsets

Published

on

The Toy Book reported that LEGO Group is taking down a number of playsets featuring law enforcement figures.

The death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police kicked off massive protests throughout the country, and now the private sector is joining in on the virtue signaling craze.

The toy industry trade magazine received a copy of an email that was sent to “affiliate marketers by Rakuten Linkshare on behalf of the LEGO Group.”

James Zahn of Legos noted the following:

The email requests removal of product listings and features for more than 30 LEGO building sets, Minifigures, and accessories that include representation of police officers, firefighters, criminals, emergency vehicles, and buildings. Sets include the LEGO City Police Station, Fire Station, Police Dog Unit, Patrol Car, Fire Plane, Mobile Command Center, Police Highway Arrest, and many more. Even the LEGO City Donut Shop Opening set — which includes Police Officer “Duke DeTain” and “Crook” Minifigures — roleplay items including a Police Handcuffs & Badge Set, and the adult builder LEGO Creator version of The White House made the removal list.

LEGO responded to the Toy Book after being contacted by them about the situation:

We requested that our affiliate partners refrain from posting promotional LEGO content as part of our decision to respect #BlackOutTuesday and pause posting content on our social media channels in response to the tragic events in the US. We regret any misunderstanding and will ensure that we are clearer about our intentions in the future.

On June 3, 2020, LEGO posted a message on its social platforms on June 3. LEGO saying that it “will donate $4 million to organizations dedicated to supporting black children and educating all children about racial equality.”

Traditionally speaking, the LEGO City theme has been one of LEGO’s bestselling categories, and law enforcement has been a mainstay. Police have generally been central pieces of LEGO storytelling for toys, games, and animation for years.

Zahn concluded:

There are no plans to discontinue these sets or to pull any product from shelves despite affiliates being asked not to actively market them. The company took to social networks to post an additional statement of clarification for consumers.

Brad Parscale, the Campaign Manager for President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election effort, pushed back against this news.

He tweeted, “This is nuts.@LEGO_Group is removing playsets featuring police, firefighters & emergency vehicles. Even ditching an adult White House kit. We ought to stress the good in law enforcement for kids. What does @JoeBiden think about LEGO erasing cops?”

LEGO is just the latest company bowing down to political correctness.

America is at a turning point where its culture has been so thoroughly infected by political correctness that it may no longer be able to function as a cohesive nation.

Hack Economist Paul Krugman Celebrates the Death of Elderly White People

Published

on

On June 30, 2020, economist Paul Krugman expressed his desire for the death of White Americans.

He tweeted, “Reality is coming for white supremacists driving golf carts” in reference to an article from Bloomberg News that highlighted how the Wuhan virus pandemic is particularly deadly and disproportionately impacting older segments of the American population.

According to Bloomberg, “record numbers of Floridians 75 and older are testing positive for Covid-19,” according to a June 29 report.

The report added:

Florida hasn’t seen a departure from its relatively low rate of Covid-19 deaths, but it can take weeks from onset of symptoms to death, and the surge in infections is recent.

The new positivity rate — which measures the proportion of people testing positive for the first time compared to the day’s overall testing — started climbing significantly about two weeks ago.

Common sense measures such as quarantining and isolating the elderly population make sense in these circumstances. But total lockdowns are an overreach.

To the point of Krugman race-baiting, this is not a surprise given his status as a mainstream economist.

Political correctness is his M.O., from pushing central banking to perpetuating destructive identity politics.

The anti-white rhetoric being used now is part of a larger plot to destroy all of American history. That means everything from our rights to free speech and bear arms will be on the chopping block.

The Right will need to assert itself against this mob and keep them from gaining power.

More importantly, they must implement policies such as defunding public education at all levels to prevent these people from further consolidating power.
