Why do Snowflakes hate Gay people?

Homophobes!

Students at Brown University vehemently objected to a speech by conservative pundit Guy Benson, saying he enables “white supremacist and fascist ideas” by supporting free speech.

The 18 students, calling themselves “A Collective of Students at Brown University,” wrote an open letter slamming Benson’s appearance at Brown Tuesday night, even preemptively arguing that the event violates the Student Code of Conduct.

18 fascists out of how many students? Again, it is important to remember how few these snowflakes are in number. Yes, they are loud, obnoxious, self-obsessed, and bigots, but they are few. The people who agitate me more than these snowflakes are the ones that cater and bow to them. Placating these miscreants is inexcusable. Now, back to the latest outbreak of Selective Outrage Syndrome

The letter first attacks Benson’s support for freedom of speech, specifically referencing his view that hate speech should not be limited by the government.

“Based on our research into the speaker, we anticipate that Benson will make arguments in support of the freedom of any person to make hateful, oppressive, or damaging remarks based on their constitutionally protected right to free speech,” the students fume.

They then contend that the event is an insult to the history of student activism at Brown, declaring that they “will not stand idly by as our proud history of student activism is belittled and the real emotional, physical, and psychological needs of marginalized students are denigrated as illogical and irrelevant.”

The letter goes on to say that the “conversation” surrounding free speech is “explicitly dangerous to the well-being and continued thriving of people of color and other marginalized people.”

In other words free speech for them, but not for anyone who holds different views. Their perverse definition of free speech would make their role model, Marx very happy

“So often, popular conversations around free speech focus on the right of people with power or who hold privileged identities (i.e. who are white, or cisgender men, or wealthy, or able bodied, etc.) to espouse hateful rhetoric which actively makes others less safe,” the students assert. “Rarely do these mainstream conversations on free speech consider the urgent need for people of color and other marginalized people to speak back against systems of oppression for their own self-preservation.”

This is, of course nuclear grade BS. Everyone is free to speak, and these leftists i training have no problem being heard do they? If you wish to really delve into the abject madness of these perpetually aggrieved degenerates go read their whole whining screed

Hint, you might wish to wear hip waders as the babbling idiocy gets very deep

If you think that President Obama does not want to end the shutdown……

You would be right! He wants to cause as much pain for the people, believing they will blame the GOP. This is all about one thing the 2014 mid-term elections, and Obama really digs using the word ransom apparently

This is getting so old. House Republicans came up with yet another proposal to fund the government and avoid hitting the debt ceiling. Guy Benson noted that the plan Harry Reid called “extreme” in a diatribe on the Senate floor, is very close to the Senate plan. But Democrats can’t agree to it, because then they couldn’t go out and accuse the Republicans of being partisan. The White House rejected the proposal before Nancy Pelosi could even get her face in front of a microphone.

An hour earlier rank-and-file Republicans came out of the meeting to say their leaders had proposed taking a plan being worked on in the Senate and attaching the two Obamacare changes, and were going to put that bill on the House floor later Tuesday.

But by 11 a.m., Mr. Boehner and his chief lieutenants sounded much less certain, and several Republicans said it would be a close vote if the bill were brought to the floor.

Democratic leaders said not to count on them for help in getting the bill through the House, and the White House also rejected the plan, saying it preferred the Senate’s negotiations.

That deal, still under construction, doesn’t make any major dents in the president’s health law.

The White House released a statement that includes the word “ransom,” of course.

Yes, of course!

Team Obama vs Texas! Updated!

For those who wondered why I was so eager to support Rick Perry, here is a great example. Governor Rick Perry and the state legislature banned Planned Parenthood from the states Texas’ Women’s Health Program. Obama threatened to cut funding to the entire program. Texas Health and Human Services Commissioner Thomas Suehs signed the rule anyway. And now, Team Obama, you know the administration that cares so much about women’s health, has followed through on their threat. Tina Korbe has the rest of the story

Yes, the Obama administration actually does want to cut funding and jeopardize the Texas’ Women’s Health Program entirely. He cares more to protect Planned Parenthood than he does to protect women’s health, in general. Fortunately for low-income women in Texas, Rick Perry won’t stand for it. Via Guy Benson:

Perry, who slammed the federal government constantly during his short-lived bid for the Republican presidential nomination, has directed state health officials to find the funding to keep the program going from other parts of the budget, but he has promised not to raise revenues to cover the costs.

Governor Perry was on the Mike Gallagher Show the other morning, and talked about this. He stressed the right of Texas to determine how the money is spent

The Obama administration had pledged to stop funding the Women’s Health Program because federal law requires women to be able to choose any qualified clinic. Gov. Rick Perry counters that states have the right, under federal law, to determine qualified providers in the program.The program provides care to about 130,000 women between the ages of 18 and 44 earning less than $20,000 a year or less than $41,000 for a family of four — with federal funds paying 90 percent of its cost and Texas covering the rest. Mann said that last year it cost about $41 million, and about $34 million of that came from Washington.

Good for our governor, we are damned lucky to have him. The Obama administration has no respect for the 10th amendment, or for helping women get health care. Could the distinction be any clearer?

UPDATE!! Texas is also going to fight the over reaching feds over the Texas voter ID law! video at twhe link

Perry defended Texas’ right to institute a voter ID law, saying they’ve had several cases of fraud problems that a voter ID would cure. He also suggested he can only surmise that those opposed to the law must only want to win elections by fraudulent means.

And when it comes to beating Eric Holder and the DOJ, he says that he’s ready to take this case all the way to the Supreme Court, who he notes has already ruled in favor of states implementing voter ID laws:

Like I said, this is why I like Perry so much! I think he deserves a spot in my Politically INcorrect Hall of Fame!
