Yale and other universities are being destroyed by Snowflakes

And, I would add by the cowards who cave to the snowflakes, left.ists, and other agitators. Great piece at Never Yet Melted

Esteban Elizondo is only a senior at Yale, but he’s indignant enough to be an alumn.

Last weekend, 148 students stormed the field at the Harvard-Yale game to protest climate change, causing a 50-minute delay and forcing the players to finish in the dark. The Post editorial board called it “the college-version of a toddler’s meltdown,” and that is exactly right. As a current Yale student, I am constantly stunned by the childish behavior of my peers, who are voting-age adults attending what is supposedly one of the most prestigious colleges in America.

At Yale, there is seemingly a new protest every week. Each protest carries the same juvenile self-righteousness, enabled by a university administration that never dares to challenge its student body.

Yale “first-years” arrive on campus curious and mostly capable, but the university quickly proceeds to bubble-wrap their young minds, eliminating any trace of discomfort from their college experience. Rather than allowing students to learn through adversity, the administration creates a safe space where students are never told “no.” Instead, they’re provided with amenities ranging from therapy puppies to sandboxes — more fitting of a day-care center than a university.

Rather than confront its student body with uncomfortable truths, the university creates an alternate reality, where the only opinion that matters is yours, especially if you’re a leftist. Earlier this month, a group of students painted their faces white and began wailing outside a classroom as part of a protest against professor Emma Sky, whom they lazily branded a “war criminal” because she once served as an advisor to the commanding general of US forces in Iraq and the commander of NATO’s International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.

To be clear, professor Sky has dedicated her entire adult life to peace in the Middle East, and her calming influence during the war no doubt saved countless lives. But the students made no legitimate attempts to academically engage with her and claimed this was “interdisciplinary research” on the “ethnography of power.” Incredibly, this antic was part of a student’s senior project that was awarded both funding from a residential college and school credit.

Go read it all folks. This nation is suffering great harm from the snowflakes, but they could never cause such harm without the cowards who grovel and seek to appease those snowflakes.

When the Hell are we going to lock up violent felons?

Is common sense dead? The Other McCain gives us the latest example that when it comes to politicians who write laws it may be.

We reported earlier this month on the disappearance of Aniah Blanchard, a 19-year-old college student who was reportedly abducted in Auburn, Alabama, on Oct. 23. Blanchard is the step-daughter of UFC fighter Walt Harris, and on Nov. 7, police arrested suspect Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, who had fled to Pensacola, Florida. As I reported on Nov. 9 (“Why Wasn’t Ibraheem Yazid in Jail?”), the suspect had a lengthy record of violent crime and yet had been released on bail after a near-fatal attack on an elderly man in January. On the night she went missing, Aniah reportedly told a friend that she was going to meet a guy she had connected with via a dating app, and now police say they have recovered her remains about 30 miles from where she disappeared

If this piece of filth had been locked the Hell away, as he should have been, this girl would be alive, her family would not be going through the anguish they must now endure. Tell me, how hard is it for legislators to write laws that lock people like this evil bastard away?

The Other McCain has reported how evil this man was, yet, he was out walking around because “social justice”

As I mentioned in an update last night (“Police Arrest Ibraheem Yazeed, 29, in Disappearance of Aniah Blanchard, 19”), the suspect has a lengthy criminal record — apparently his entire adult life has been devoted to perpetrating crime — and yet, for some reason, Yazeed managed to get bonded out after being arrested for a savage crime that nearly killed an old man. What is happening in Alabama’s criminal justice system that would result in such a dangerous person being turned loose on the streets? I don’t know, but I suspect it might have something to do with The Bail Project, a Soros-funded operation I wrote about in April: “‘No One Could Have Predicted This Tragedy’ (But It Was Predictable).”

If what I suspect is true, here we have a young woman of color being victimized by a serial offender because turning violent criminals loose is what a bunch of idiot liberals consider “social justice.” People should be angry, and there needs to be some serious reporting on this. More violence against women that feminists won’t notice, for some reason.

Have I mentioned before how Leftism destroys everything it touches? Add this beautiful young girl, and her family to the list of destruction

What Chick-fil-A’s cowardice has wrought

alexis-de-tocqueville-460856

One day, when no one can share,  speak, or post any opinion anywhere, and when no business gives anything to any charity they will have gutless wonders like Chick-fil-A to thank

Chick-fil-A’s disappointing decision to discontinue donations to “controversial” Christian charities is emblematic of the power of political correctness and the bullying left that drives it. If the previously stalwart Chick-fil-A folds, who is left standing to fight?

Tireless, intolerant LGBTQ activists bombarded the restaurant chain with protests and accusations about it being “anti-gay.” The gist of its sin is that it has donated millions of dollars to The Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which have historically opposed same-sex marriage.

Just this week, the restaurant chain announced it has stopped funding these two charities. “We made multi-year commitments to both organizations and we fulfilled those obligations in 2018,” said a spokeswoman for the company. She added that the company would focus its giving on “education, homelessness and hunger.”

The Salvation Army issued a statement expressing that it was “saddened” by this development. “We serve more than 23 million individuals a year, including those in the LGBTQ+ community,” the statement reads. “In fact, we believe we are the largest provider of poverty relief to the LGBTQ+ population.”

Of course the Salvation Army has helped so many people, of every race/gender/creed/orientation/religion for so long. And now, that charity has been hurt in their efforts because of the professionally offended yes. But, more so by the cowards like the fools who run Chick-fil-A. A bully, and yes, social justice activists are ALL about bullying, can only succeed if others give in to them. And Chick-fil-A has now bowed before their new masters. And that knee-taking will not buy any relief for the company. Bullies never stop when they get their way. Instead they demand more. Welcome to your new status as a bitch for social justice thugs Chick-fil-A!

Go read the whole piece by David Limbaugh, who understands exactly what the left is about. He makes clear that Chick-fil-A was never anti-gay. And that this has nothing to do with that anyway. It is about controlling your tongues

You see, it’s not about being anti-gay at all. It’s about dictating to people how they must think, what they may or may not say, and to whom they may contribute.

This is why I am so angry over this. Chick-fil-A did not just cower before thugs, they sacrificed their freedom to have an opinion, and they also helped empower those who wish to share theirs. Chick-fil-A turned their backs on liberty. In a way they are worse than the bullies. 

Tom Steyer, Elitist/Statist/Leftist

Oh Tom Steyer. so very full of himself, as Stacy McCain explains

Anyone who has read Thomas Sowell’s The Vision of the Anointed: Self-Congratulation as a Basis for Social Policy understands the worldview of “progressive” billionaire Tom Steyer. There is no problem that cannot be solved, such people believe, if (a) we put “enlightened” people in charge, and (b) we give them unlimited power and taxpayer dollars to provide a “solution.” If you voice objections to these grandiose schemes — e.g., explaining that similar plans have failed in the past, or pointing out the fiscal problems involved — you will discover that it is impossible to dissuade the Anointed from their cherished Vision. Facts don’t matter, past precedents prove nothing, and even basic arithmetic must be ignored, because the status quo is “unacceptable,” the problem involved is a “crisis,” and only a coward or a fool could oppose a “solution.” The man who bought his way into the debate is all-in on the housing “crisis”:

Democrat presidential hopeful Tom Steyer claimed he would “force” American towns to accept new, affordable housing in certain areas while speaking at the Democrat presidential primary debate held in Atlanta, Georgia, at Tyler Perry Studios on Wednesday.
Steyer’s remarks came as he was asked about affordable housing, particularly in his home state of California, which includes Los Angeles and San Francisco.
“When you look at inequality in the United States of America, you have to start with housing,” Steyer claimed. “Where you put your head at night determines so many things about your life. It determines where your kids go to school, it determines the air you breathe, where you shop, how long it takes you to get to work.”
“What we’ve seen in California is as a result of policy,” Steyer continued. “We have millions too few housing units and that effects everybody in California. It starts with a homeless crisis that goes all through the state, but it also includes skyrocketing rents that effect every single working person in the state of California.”
Steyer then claimed he knows “exactly what needs to be done” to address the housing crisis, and discussed the impact on the climate regarding certain liveable locations.
“I understand exactly what needs to be done here, which is why we need to change policy and we need to apply the resources here to make sure that we build, literally. millions of units,” Steyer said. “Where people live has a dramatic impact on climate and sustainability.”
Steyer then claimed that his administration would “force” towns to accept new housing units that are affordable for its residents.
“So, we’re gonna have to direct dollars, we’re gonna have to change policy and make sure that the localities and municipalities who have worked very hard to ensure that there are no new housing units built in their towns that they change that and we’re gonna have to force it,” Steyer added. “Then we’re gonna have to direct federal dollars to make sure that those units are affordable.”

Good intentions, I think the Bible mentions where they often lead, and the history of Marxism has proven that true over and again

IDIOTS! Idiots Everywhere!

Animal has his weekly assortment of morons, fools, idiots, and buffoons Some highlights, but please go rad the whole thing 

Stacey Abrams is an idiot.

She loses the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election by over 50,00 votes, says that Democrats don’t need to concede elections anymore, and declares that she will focus on voter rights. Yes, it was only the logical step for Stacey Abrams to attack the Electoral College as racist because why not. She’s only the ten-millionth liberal who has done so since 2016. It’s part of an appalling trend, where liberals attach anything as racist, especially when they lose an election because they think they’re entitled to win them all. With the 2016 election being the fifth election in which the winner has won the Electoral College, but got fewer popular votes, you can see why Democrats are unhappy. Oh, and friendly reminder, if ‘winning’ the popular votes means clinching a majority (50+1), Hillary is still a loser in that contest.

Here is Abrams, explaining how stupid she really is! Damn you Idaho!! Wait, wait, Idaho is known for potatoes, right? So, according to dumber than a tree stump Abrams, french fries are, RAAAAACIST!

Like I said, there is lots more leftist idiocy at the link, GO READ!

 

Then, then they came for your clothes

I guess we will all be told what to wear, if anything at all, because, CLIMATE DOOM!

If you really cared about ‘climate change’ you’d either stop wearing clothes or just make your own, you know. This comes from the excitable climate cultist mind of Elizabeth Cline, the author of “The Conscious Closet: The Revolutionary Guide to Looking Good While Doing Good.”

Wear Clothes? Then You’re Part of the Problem

Climate protests drew millions around the world in September. Many of the Democratic presidential candidates have rolled out ambitious plans to cut carbon while making the economy greener. There’s a sense of momentum to solve our planetary crisis. And yet a leading cause of climate change remains persistently overlooked or trivialized: clothing.

And billions didn’t protest, didn’t care. Anyhow, why were all those protesters who care wearing clothes?

Please, go read it all. This is just the next step in the all-consuming power grab the left seeks. What you eat, what you drive, what you will be allowed to say, read or write, how, and if you will be allowed to defend yourself, what you eat, and yes, what you wear

And then they came for clapping

Jazz Hands Justice or something

A student newspaper at Oxford University in the United Kingdom is reporting that the school’s student council will encourage the use of “jazz hands,” the British Sign Language symbol for “applause,” rather than clapping because traditional applause could cause anxiety.

According to the Oxford Student, the Oxford Student Council approved a motion mandating the officers to encourage the use of jazz hands rather than clapping. Oxford University Student Council Vice President of Welfare and Equal Opportunity Roisin McCallion reportedly introduced the motion, which passed Tuesday. The phrase “jazz hands” refers to when one moves their hands quickly back and forth in front of them.

The Daily Mail quoted one Oxford student as saying,  “Oxford University Student Union is always seeking to be more accommodating for students. Especially for those with accessibility issues.” However, the student added, “but this idea will not work and is completely ludicrous.”

Piers Morgan even weighed in on the controversy, tweeting, “re your ban on clapping to stop students with anxiety being triggered, & use of silent ‘jazz hands’ instead.. a) Performing ‘jazz hands’ is racist. b) Your new rule excludes blind people, so will make them feel marginalised.
c) Grow a pair you imbeciles.”
