The purge of all things associated with America’s heritage and core population has reached such a hysterical frenzy that not even insects are safe.
Emory & Henry College in Virginia has announced to students the school will re-examine its wasp mascot. Why? The bug may appear “exclusive” to students who are not White Anglo-Saxon Protestants, or “WASPs.”
Good Freaking Grief!!I think being stung by a murder might be less painful than putting up with the idiots who put up with such idiocy
They may have to change the name of the school itself. It was named after people who lived hundreds of years ago and therefore did not conform to today’s norms: John Emory and Patrick Henry. They are no longer to be viewed as a Methodist Episcopal Church bishop and a Founding Father, but as evil white slave owners.
Ah, we need Patrick Henry about now. “Give me Liberty, or give me death!”The snowflakes would explode if they heard such a declaration
Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young defended vandals who tore down a statue of Christopher Columbus on Saturday and tossed it into the city’s Inner Harbor.
Through spokesman Lester Davis, Young called the action part of a “re-examination taking place nationally and globally around some of these monuments and statues that may represent different things to different people,” The Baltimore Sun reported.
Ah what?Re-examining would mean taking about it, letting residents vote, it does not mean tearing statues down. That is nothing but mob rule. But, the mayor sees it differently, because he is not too swift
“We understand the frustrations,” Davis continued. “What the city wants to do is serve ks.as a national model, particularly with how we’ve done with protesting. We’ve seen people who have taken to the streets, we have supported them. We are going to continue to support it. That’s a full stop.”
Will someone get this imbecile some blocks to play with? He wants to take mob rule national! Good Freaking Grief! But let us be totally fair, the mayor is a fool, but the people who keep voting in crooks and idiots to represent Baltimore are as smart as a box of rocks
Via Hot Air comesnews that the Oakland Mayor, Mayor Karenbelieves that racial division is the goal, facts be damned
It started a few days ago with a report of nooses found hanging from a tree in a park in Oakland. The city was stunned. Had some white supremacist chosen to lash out amid the protests over George Floyd’s killing by displaying a notorious symbol of lynchings? The matter had to be investigated.
According to Oakland police, officers discovered five ropes Tuesday afternoon attached to trees at Lake Merritt…
Victor Sengbe told ABC7 News the rope is part of a rigging used by him and his friends as part of a larger swing system…
“Out of the hundreds, thousands of people who walked by, no one even thought it looked anywhere close to a noose,” said Sengbe. “Folks have used it for exercise, it was really a fun addition to the park that we tried to create.”
Sengbe told us the small piece of rope, still up in a tree is all part of the same system.
OK then, case solved let’s move on right? OH NO because RACE PIMPING IS FUN!
So it was, mercifully, a false alarm. An incident that seemed poised to raise racial tensions in Oakland was actually just a misunderstanding. No one was trying to intimidate anyone. Now the mayor could call a press conference, tell the public what happened, and douse any embers of suspicion that might be starting to burn in the community.
But Oakland’s mayor didn’t do that. She’s a Democrat running a reliably Democratic city in a reliably Democratic state. Instead of putting her constituents at ease, this was her moment to throw fuel on those embers and peacock about how down with the struggle she is
The chief of the Olympia, Washington police department says an internal investigation is taking place after an officer posed for a picture with several members of the group Three Percent of Washington early Friday morning. The group of about a dozen gun owners were standing guard outside of a local gun store after the owner requested “armed members of the community to make a presence in his parking lot” over concerns that his store would be targeted by burglars.
Oh NO!Not Three Percenters, they believe in the second amendment!EWWWW. I mean look at the picture
This image, of course triggers leftist bed wetters, and sadly the police chief in Olympia is more political hack than police officer, so, cue the weasel words
“I am disappointed and frustrated that the photo was taken at all, but particularly at this sensitive time in our city and nation,” Jelcick wrote. “I regret that this photo may damage the trust our community places in us that we have worked so hard to build. I apologize for the pain this has caused our community. It is imperative that Olympia Police Officers uphold our values, remain neutral to the message at public demonstrations, and do not engage in or promote conduct that will bring discredit to themselves, the Department or the City.”
Meanwhile Mayor Cheryl Selby was quick to jump on the Weasel Express
“After a long week for my community, I’m discouraged that I have to make a post like this,” the mayor wrote. “I have confirmed a photo of an Olympia police officer posing with a group of armed militia members, some of whom are displaying white power signs. I find this behavior to be abhorrent and unequivocally unacceptable.
“Our council/manager form of government restricts me from discussing disciplinary measures, though my council and I are demanding a thorough investigation,” she wrote. “As the picture clearly illustrates in no uncertain terms, a culture change within the police department and city government is clearly needed.
“We hear our community demanding it and we must rise to meet this challenge. The presence of an armed militia is not what we want to see in Olympia, and we are asking those people to stay home to ensure that peaceful protest can continue in our city.”
She ended her post with “BLACK LIVES MATTER!!!!!”
Certainly giving a shout out to the Marxists of BLM is not unprofessional right Mayor McMoron?If she looked at the photo, she would see the Black member of the group front and center. The group also includes two Hispanic men, and a Jewish member. The officer is, clearly, a woman.Ibelieve they call that diversity. Of course, women, Jews, Blacksand Hispanic peopleare not really genuine unless they are leftists so………... Asto the White Power hand gesture, that is a sign that members of Three Percenters use, sooooooo.
Sadly, this is our new normal where many political leaders are concerned. looters and rioters excused while law enforcement is vilified and Americans who exercise the right of self-defense are portrayed as evil.
Commenting on the death of George Floyd, she went nuclear stoopit
“This has to stop!! Until we can over come Racism in America— no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops,” the pop diva writes in an Instagram post.
OK Madonna, OK, but, somehow, I DOUBT your sincerity, as does Tom Knighton
You see, the singer is known to routinely enjoy armed security, a fact that came in pretty handy once upon a time.
Back in 1996, a man tried to gain entrance into Madonna’s home. He was met with armed security who ended up shooting the suspect. Now, we can’t be certain the man was an actual threat to Madonna, but I doubt he’d be a charming houseguest the singer would be delighted to have stay with her either.
Where were her complaints then?
Ah yes, it is different when Madonna needs protection. Remember folks, Leftism is an ideology of inconsistency
One such soft skull is Anand Giridharadas, son of East Indian heritage, former columnist for the NYT, schooled in privilege at Sidwell Friends School, University of Michigan & Harvard, who now (because he’s more smarter and wrote a book) is one of the media’s go-to oracles on what’s wrong with America, Americans, and in-particular, people who don’t look like him.
Giridharadas latest ignorant proclamation is he believes “freedom-obsessed Americans” are blinded to threats like virus or climate change. In his own words speaking on MSNBC’s ‘Morning’s with Squinty’ of the present Corona Virus outbreak:
“One of the fundamental questions to me is, what’s going to be our relationship to government, the idea of government after this? There’s a primordial American tradition going back to the founders of being freedom-obsessed, even though we’re a country founded on slavery and genocide, being freedom-obsessed to the point that we’re always so afraid of the government coming for us that we’re blind to other types of threats, whether it’s a virus, whether it’s bank malfeasance, climate change, what have you.
OH, Anand you simpering fool. I, and others like me understand mortality, and threats. But we, like our founders also recognize natural rights. And that without those rights, people, any people, are simply, to one degree or another slaves to the state. We recognize that without those liberties, we are not free. Our constitution, it does not bestow rights, it protects them. We are born free, and we recognize that defending that freedom is a duty.
The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau.
Ludwig von Mises (2016). Bureaucracy: The Economist
Truth is a powerful thing, and the quote above is, absolute truth. Socialism, Leftism, Leninism, and all the other bastard “isms” that Marx and Engels spawned have the same goal, control, of you, of everything. Never forget that. Never forget that Bernie Sanders, and AOC, and the rest of the “woke” left want to erase our constitution. But, do not allow the talk of “moderate” Democrats to seduce you.
Listen to what the Democratic candidates this year have promised and promoted. Some form of single-payer healthcare (socialized medicine), seizure of your firearms, using the power of the government to eradicate firearm manufacturers, abortion even in the third trimester, and yes, beyond, tax hikes, punishing successful corporations, erasing, again to varying degrees, our border, and larger and larger federal government across the board. The list goes on, and on. They are all either Marxist, or are willing to pursue many tenets of Marxism to control you, and me, and everyone in the country.
Some may think such policies are good, and are acting from “good intentions” Some are just power hungry, and will use whatever means to gain their ends. And some are simply dedicated Marxists. And, no matter which of these drive the current Democratic Party, they will all arrive at the same conclusion. No more America!
Well, there we go folks, the left wants less policing, less arrests, no cash bail, and God forbid “disproportionate arrests etc. And who pays the price for such stupidity? The store owners and costumers in cases like the one above. But, again, this is where the “good intentions” of fools lead. You will never achieve a goal of less crime by legalizing, and thus normalizing criminal behavior. In fact we will, as a society get more crime. And not just theft either, violent crimes will rise as well. But, that is not a bad thing to the left. They will just blame “gun violence” while attacking police who actually are forced to shoot violent thugs. And legal gun owners will be blamed of course, because self-defense is contradictory to the “values” of collectivists.
Allow me to be clear. If a word, yes even “that word which can never be uttered” causes you that much stress, the problem is YOU! If it is used in a historical context, like, quoting LBJ, for example, simply hearing the word should not bother you to such an extent that you devolve into a whining, screeching preening, drama queen. In other words, if the worst thing that happens to you is hearing “that word” then you have it pretty good. So, again, do NOT be like these whiners, and for God’s sake do not reward their petulant attitudes by apologizing.
The University of Oklahoma has apologized after a history professor used the n-word in class while reading from a “historical document.”
OU President Joseph Harroz Jr. sent a letter to the OU community addressing the incident by announcing plans to institute a mandatory “diversity, equity, and inclusion” training for all faculty, staff, and members of the administration. The training will address “implicit bias.”
This latest incident follows another episode, where a different professor equated the phrase “OK, boomer” to the n-word.
“We are all weary of racially charged incidents occurring within our university community,” Harroz began.
Harroz then focused on the faculty member who used the racial slur in the classroom.
“While she could have made the point without reciting the actual word, she chose otherwise,” Harroz wrote. “Her issuance of a ‘trigger warning’ before her recitation does not lessen the pain caused by the use of the word. For students in the class, as well as members of our community, this was another painful experience. It is common sense to avoid uttering the most offensive word in the English language, especially in an environment where the speaker holds the power.”
AGAIN, STOP! Stop coddling these students. You are only encouraging their behavior, which, frankly, amounts to bullying everyone around them to be wary of uttering anything that might offend them. And, finally, stop nonsense like this (emphasis mine)
According to Harroz, after the previous incident, OU officials began working on “action steps” to address these issues. Among these were the new mandatory training and an “incident response protocol” that “quickly employs culturally restorative justice practices designed to create a pathway to reconciliation through education and the changing of behavior.”
Really? More over reaction is not the solution, and never will be. Seriously, who comes up with such nonsensical babbling? Good Freaking Grief!
How about we be honest with students, both those who actually get so offended over a word, and those agitators using “offensive language” as an excuse to bully and intimidate? How about we tell them that they ARE going to hear things that offend them, and that no one owes them emotional support. No one owes them fake sympathy for their fake emotional distress. How about we offer some two-word solutions? Like “so what?’ or “too bad”, or maybe “tough luck”?
"Doctors should be able to write prescriptions for housing the same way they do for insulin and antibiotics. Why not?"@GavinNewsom in his "State of the State" in California says housing and healthcare should be bound.
Canada came within a whisker of losing its place in a United Nations peacekeeping mission in the fall of 2018 because of the military’s inability to consistently deploy enough women to meet the world body’s guidelines.
Is there a better example of how leftism corodes, and eventually destroys everything it touches than the U.N.? Then, there is the pervasive racism being pushed by the leftist “Woke Brigade”
An elite Manhattan school is teaching white students as young as 6 that they’re born racist and should feel guilty benefiting from “white privilege,” while heaping praise and cupcakes on their black peers.
Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.
A novel approach to fighting discrimination? By teaching hatred and racist ideology? This is NOT the way to have less hate. Instead, it is the way to create more division. But, of course, that is the point of this isn’t it? The left advances its twisted ideology by dividing people along every line they can. Rather than teaching individualism, they teach straight up hate. And the results? People like this idiot
Leftists at the University of Virginia are dictating who is and who isn’t allowed in the new Multicultural Student Center.
“Frankly there is just too many white people in here, and this is a space for people of color.”
Wanna quick lesson on how NOT to be racist? Do not judge people on their pigmentation. Do not be obsessed over skin color. Judge people for how they act and treat others. ALL people are individuals. SIMPLE!
I have no words, I really do not. This is nothing but pure stupidity. We are doomed if we do not start calling such idiocy out
Cosmopolitan did not publish the digital edition of their March cover featuring “Bachelor” contestant Victoria F.
The fashion and lifestyle magazine chose not to publish due to Victoria F’s ties to “White Lives Matter” apparel, according to the letter from the editor, Jessica Pels published Monday.
Of course this clothing line has zero to do with race, racism, or anything political. Instead it is about protecting fish, in this case white marlins
“It’s been reported that what she modeled for was actually a Marlin Lives Matter organization focused on preventing white and blue marlin from being overfished, which used ‘white lives matter’ and ‘blue lives matter’ messaging on its promotional shirts and hats,” Pels noted. “In my view, the nature of the organization is neither here nor there—both phrases and the belief systems they represent are rooted in racism and therefore problematic.”
Wow! So, what the clothing line actually represents matters not? What matters to this glue sniffing idiot is that RAAAAACISM. But there is no racism. Remember reality folks? Remember perspective? We need those things
File this under GOOD FREAKING GRIEF! And Nuclear Grade Idiocy
Nance, cont’d: “Absolutely” Trump is now a “king,” “we are not living in a constitutional republic anymore … Donald Trump is the supreme element of the state, like North Korea”; 2020 might spell end of “America as we’ve known it."
I ask this question because I think your average democrat voter out there does have the intelletual ability to sit down, critically think this one out and say, “yeah, wait a minute, why does the government have to get involved in this?” Because if you do take the time to think about it, if the government is going to get involved in managing self-check out lanes, what can it not get involved in?
Already in Oregon it’s law that you cannot pump your own gas.
Minneapolis has made it that you can no longer have new drive throughs built in the city.
And I don’t want to even know what anal retentive, microscopic details San Francisco has regulate just this week alone.
Soooo Oregon, or the morons running it, do not think people are capable of pumping gas? Likely not. More likely that the state government figured a way make some $$$$ and gas stations climbed on board because $$$$. Central Planners, greed, and corruption will lead somewhere, Captain Capitalism predicts where
At some point (I would say a point long ago) government intervention, regulation, and mere dictates will get into every nook and cranny of society that society will no longer be able to function, let alone at an optimal level that an optimal (and efficient) level of law/regulation would allow for. The tedium one will have to put up with to just open a grocery store, employ a new gas station attendant, or open a new restaurant will get to the point most productive people will be throwing in the towel.
Eight attempts at a Baltimore plastic bag ban have come and gone since 2006. Today, nine times proved to be the charm. This morning, Mayor Jack Young signed the Comprehensive Bag Reduction Bill into law. The signing drew dozens of advocates, city officials, press, and community members together.
In Baltimore, plastic bags are everywhere. They fly down our streets, get caught in trees, clog our storm drains and streams, and choke out plants and animals. They cause even more problems worldwide. That’s why Blue Water Baltimore championed this bill.
Well, this is certainly the most important action they could take I mean what is more crucial than banning bags? Fritz notes a few things that Baltimore might tackle before bags
But what do we expect from politicians, especially in a “woke” city like Baltimore? If these idiots ran the fire department they would respond to a house on fire by mowing the lawn while the home burned.
And, when I say “some” people, I mean knuckle draggers like this
After quoting a popular Bible verse to back up his assertion about the tenets of Christianity in his college essay, a student at Rutgers University-New Brunswick says he was told to avoid quoting Bible verses in academic papers because of the “separation of church and state” and the potential to offend non-Christians.
Separation of church and state? Was this professor dropped on her head numerous times as a child? The first amendment clearly states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. So, what this professor is saying is that the student is actually Congress and his opinion is, somehow, a law!
These reprobate bastards shouldbe beaten with sticks. Then they should be made to study Stonewall Jackson, and the man he was. In truth you have to have an IQ of 50 or less to deface a memorial to General Jackson! Seriously, who attacks war memorials? Go watch the video at the link, and yes, that includes any Republicans who are not up to speed on Jackson, Lee, and many other Confederate leaders and soldiers. Those who still spread the false narrative that no Southerner fought for any reason except slavery, and that every state seceded solely to preserve slavery need to stop! Those who seek to remove slavery as a cause are wrong, as are those who seek to remove the other issues that were causes as well. They are helping the leftists who will erase every last aspect of American history if not stopped!
A St. Bernard Parish native who spent most of his non-military life in New Orleans, Beauregard was a man of great contradiction. He fired the first shots in a war to preserve slavery, yet in defeat argued passionately for human rights and for granting black people the right to vote.
