One student’s complaint of “cultural appropriation” led to the dissolution of a university’s Bhakti yoga group.
American University student Maya Krishnan filed a complaint with the President’s Council on Diversity and Inclusion and wrote an op-ed in the student paper, The Eagle, after seeing a non-Indian group invited by American University’s Bhakti Yoga Club performing the Indian epic “The Ramayana,” according to ISKCON News.
Of course, once again, no one stood up to the bully and…………
The Bhakti Yoga Club’s faculty adviser, as well as its student president and vice president, all resigned from their posts amid backlash following the complaint and op-ed, rendering the group unrecognized by the university.
“Having my culture represented by an almost entirely white troupe of dancers is incredibly frustrating,” Krishnan said in her op-ed. “Additionally, the director and other representatives of the theater company absolve themselves of cultural responsibility by saying that the point of the show is to increase exposure of Hinduism and its traditions.”
The Bhakti Yoga Club had invited Viva Kultura, a multinational performing arts group, to perform”The Ramayana.”
“The reality of this is that white European dancers will never know my intersectional experience as a Hindu woman, being a brown bodied person and the other aspects of systematic racism that I, as well as other South Asian people, have experienced,” Krishnan continued.
Allow me to translate that last paragraph.
Blah, VICTIM, blah, Offended, blah, I am a small person who loves to boss others around, blah, blah, you must do as I say, blah, blah, because I suffer from Racial Obsession Syndrome and am a person who is only happy when I am offended!
Remember Sinead O’Connor? Yep her. Well she is a Muslim now, and hates White people
After announcing that she has converted to Islam and changed her name to Shuhada Davitt, Sinead O’Connor took to Twitter to tell her followers that she never wants to spend time with white people ever again, upsetting her Muslim fans.
The 51-year-old star, who has a history of mental health issues and revealed she’s bipolar, took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that she’s not interested in being around non-Muslim people ever again.
“I think the big difference is what regularly happens to Congresswoman Waters because her words are so powerful and for whatever reason, the Republicans and apparently, some Democrats are threatened by her power and her courage, her words are not only taken out of context, she’s misquoted,” Rye said.
Misquoted? The video of Waters calling for threatening behavior towards Trump cabinet members and their families shows Waters, no one else, shrieking and spewing venom and hate. Rye knows this, and frankly, the fact that the video exposes what Maxine Waters is. This is why Rye is in full blown attack dog mode.
“The fact that Chuck Schumer called what a black woman said un-American is problematic and this is the reason why Democrats have a hard time reuniting the base — it has everything to do with the fact this black woman is is intimidating to some people who can’t handle the truth. It has everything to do with it,” Rye said.
Even Burnett stopped Rye, asking, “But can you not say that just because of the color of her skin?”
“It has everything to do with race,” Rye retorted.
She continued, “What America are you talking about? This is the America of lynch mobs, too. She didn’t call for violence. Trump did.”
Oh of course, the lynch mob card! Rye, like all race baiters uses that a lot. When faced with the facts, she plays the victim and deflects her own hatefulness onto others.
She sounds like she needs to be wearing a brown shirt
A so-called transgender woman reportedly filed a “human rights complaint” against a women’s waxing spa in Canada after its one Muslim employee refused to wax his weener. And I kid you not.
The so-called transgender woman seeks $50,000 in damages because when he called the spa two months earlier to inquire about Brazilian waxing services for transgender women, he received a less-than-satisfactory response from the spa’s owner, Jason Carruthers, according to Ontario’s Windsor Star newspaper:
Yeah, I can see why the spa might not be super excited about that scenario!
Following a conversation with an employee, she asked to speak with the owner. Carruthers said he called her back and explained that the female employee working that day was a practising Muslim who refrains from physical contact with males outside of her family.
He further explained the only staff member he had who did male waxing was off on a sick leave and there was no one else.
This is where Leftism begins to consume itself. PRICELESS!
One MLB player decided to “take a knee” to protest “injustice” that player seems to be a real gem of a guy who knows a LOT about thuggery, and is learning a lesson about justice
Not only does the execrable Bruce Maxwell of the Oakland A’s refuse to stand for the national anthem, not only is he an egregious hate hoaxer, not only was he arrested last weekend for sticking a gun in the face of a delivery girl, this is the respect he shows officers of the law:
When cops confronted Maxwell, he reeked of booze, cussed like crazy and couldn’t keep his story straight. …
As the investigation continued, cops say Maxwell “began making anti-police statements and utilized excessive profanity.” When cops decided to arrest him, he initially refused to comply. …
Maxwell was transported to a nearby jail, where he continued to cuss out police officers…
Nice job asshat. Maxwell lied to prove what a victim he is, a lie that could have cost a man his job
Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell, 26, claimed this week that a waiter in his Alabama hometown of Huntsville refused him service after identifying him as the MLB player who took the knee during “The Star Spangled Banner” last month — only the waiter has a very different version of events and he told Fox News that was far from what went down.
“He is outright lying. This is really upsetting as he was given full service, I didn’t even know who Bruce Maxwell was,” Matt Henry, a 42-year-old waiter at Keegan’s Public House, told Fox News. “This all started because I carded his friend who wanted to order a beer.”
According to Henry, an Alabama native, Maxwell was dining with local Democratic councilman Devyn Keith and another friend who produced an expired ID, and the server refused to serve him a drink — which upset the friend, who followed him into the kitchen.
What a low life. Maxwell will gladly throw a server under the Social Justice Bus to perpetuate the lie that America is a hotbed of RAAAAACISM! But, Maxwell’s issues do not stop there
A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell allegedly aimed a gun at a female delivery driver Saturday evening and was arrested for aggravated assault.
Maxwell was arrested shortly after 6 p.m. local time at his house in Scottsdale, Ariz., for the incident, according to TMZ.
On top of the aggravated assault charge, Maxwell was also booked for disorderly conduct.
Of course, Maxwell deserves a presumption of innocence until proven guilty, but he does seem to be obsessed with being a victim doesn’t he? Sounds a lot like the NFL players disrupting the national anthem
We know that certain players in the NFL are “taking a knee” to protest police brutality, and injustice, oh, and inequality too. We know that they are doing it during the national anthem. They claim they are doing it during the anthem to “start a discussion”. Yet, anyone who can reason knows that such an action during the Star Spangled Banner will only anger most Americans, So, whatever cause these players are pushing will get lost in that anger. In fact the net result has been to create more division and anger, not discussions.
These protests, of course, are meant to divide. The left is pushing these protests, and the left wants division and anger. Face it if these players, who have bought into the Black Lives Matter rhetoric really wanted a dialogue, they could hold press conferences. You and I know ESPN would be all over covering such events. But, again this is not about opportunities for dialogue.
If it were the players could, when asked about their protests actually address the issues they claim to be concerned about. But, they don’t. Think about that, if the whole idea is to start discussions, why do they never take advantage of all the opportunities to do so?
Maybe feigning victimhood is what they really seek?
