Non-Profit Suppresses Reports of Anti-Trump Hate Crimes to Focus on Bashing Him

6th December 2016

Read it.

My, what a surprise. Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.

A progressive non-profit suppressed evidence of anti-white hate crimes following Donald Trump’s presidential victory, apparently in favor of promoting a narrative that exclusively reported violence and racism by Trump supporters.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) released the results of a survey on Nov. 28 that purports to find a “Trump Effect” in American schools. SPLC noted that, of the 10,000 teachers who responded to the survey, about 40 percent reported they had “heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants and people based on gender or sexual orientation.” Eighty percent reported heightened anxiety by “marginalized” students, and 90 percent said the election had a generally negative effect on students.

College Students: Asking About Gender Is Triggering

5th December 2016

Read it.

Virginia Tech students collaborated to create a list of fifty “microaggressions” that students have experienced.

Students groups such as the NAACP, Muslim Student Association and Jewish Student Union collected statements that students found triggering.

The resulting campaign, called “Microaggressions: #hokiesspeakup,” started in the spring semester. Posters are strewn throughout the campus to warn students about triggering statements.

I find the whole concept of ‘microagressions’ to be triggering.

The Real War on Science

21st November 2016

Read it.

My liberal friends sometimes ask me why I don’t devote more of my science journalism to the sins of the Right. It’s fine to expose pseudoscience on the left, they say, but why aren’t you an equal-opportunity debunker? Why not write about conservatives’ threat to science?

My friends don’t like my answer: because there isn’t much to write about. Conservatives just don’t have that much impact on science. I know that sounds strange to Democrats who decry Republican creationists and call themselves the “party of science.” But I’ve done my homework. I’ve read the Left’s indictments, including Chris Mooney’s bestseller, The Republican War on Science. I finished it with the same question about this war that I had at the outset: Where are the casualties?

Federal Court Rules That Botched 43-minute Execution of Oklahoma Man Was Humane

18th November 2016

Read it.

Did the guy die? Yes? Then how was it ‘botched’?

Lockett’s brother, Gary Lockett, sued Gov. Mark Fallin (R-Okla.) and other state and prison officials saying the drawn out death of his sibling was “barbaric” and that the fumbled execution violated the inmate’s constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment.

Lockett, imprisoned at an Oklahoma state penitentiary for fatally shooting and burying alive a 19-year-old woman in 1999, was administered a cocktail of midazolam, vecuronium bromide and potassium chloride, a mix of lethal drugs never before used in Oklahoma.

Oddly enough, I don’t think I’ll lose a lot of time worrying about how long it took somebody who fatally shot and buried alive a 19-year-old woman to die. Perhaps if they were to have shot him and buried him alive it would have been better, but that’s all I can think of.

Green Energy Companies Helped Bankroll Tribe Behind Dakota Protests

17th November 2016

Read it.

Two green energy companies contributed a quarter of a million dollars to the American Indian tribe spearheading a months-long demonstration against an oil pipeline in North Dakota.

Standing Rock Sioux voted unanimously April 5 to accept two $150,000 donations from ConEdison Development and Fagen Inc., both of which have partnered up to build windmills in the North Dakota area, according to internal documents kept by the tribe.

I guess there aren’t enough dead birds in North Dakota to suit the skraelings.

Canadian Radio Station Offers to Lead the Evacuation of Anti-Trump Celebrities

A Canadian radio station is offering free first-class plane tickets to celebrities who wish to flee the country as a result of Donald Trump’s win in the presidential election — except Lena Dunham.

I know how they feel.

“We know it’s not easy being famous, living in a free country, and NOT liking the President elect,” Jordan Mercier, one of the station’s hosts, said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to them. We’re happy to open our homes and wallets to help these inconvenienced stars.”

Where’s the Proof that Donald Trump Is Homophobic?

11th November 2016

Read it.

Hint: Nowhere.

Did anybody see Question Time last night? The panel largely seemed to be competing to out-outrage each other about Donald Trump. And in their great Trump-off most of the guests continued to do that sawn-off shotgun ‘phobes’ thing. Trump as a ‘misogynist, homophobic, racist, Islamophobe’ etc. You would have thought after the second election in a year where people weren’t scared off by such name-calling that people would give it a rest for a bit. But one thing was particularly striking.

Why Doesn’t the Guardian’s Fevered Hate Crime Coverage Mention Christian Victims?

11th November 2016

Read it.

One searches in vain on the Guardian website for the name Nissar Hussain. This is odd because the newspaper seems to have spent the past few months engaged in a campaign against hate. Virtually every day there is a column or leader grimly claiming that the vote for Brexit has unleashed a spate of hate. Its archives brim with news stories trying to infer a causal link between Brexit and a reported rise in hate crime – even to the point of absurdity. Last month, the paper carried a story claiming that there had been a 147 per cent rise in homophobic attacks since Brexit. Given that homosexuality didn’t feature at all as an issue in the referendum campaign, you wonder why the headline-writer decided to link it with Brexit rather than saying reported attacks had increased in recent months – isn’t that exactly the kind of nod and wink which the Guardian deplores in tabloid headlines?

Nissar Hussain, though, doesn’t get a look in because he doesn’t quite fit the narrative of a society, peacefully living as part of the EU, which is then ripped apart when a referendum unleashes the inner emotions of white, closet fascists. Nissar is not a victim of a gang of Brexiteers armed with baseball bats who go out looking for people wearing ‘I love EU’ badges.    He is a former muslim who converted to Christianity 20 years ago and who, for the past few years, has been subjected to threats and attacks. He has already had to move house once. Last November, he was attacked in the street by louts who left him with a broken kneecap and a fractured forearm. Last Thursday, police had to move him to a safe house outside Yorkshire.

The Guardian is, as you may know, the official house organ of the Social Justice Warrior Left (and, functionally, the Labour Party) in Britain. The answer to this journalist’s question is, of course, that Christians are the official Other in Modern Multicultural Britain, and excluded from the Whose Turn Is It To Be The Victim rotation.

Chicago Stays Vibrant

8th November 2016

Steve Sailer is Keepin’ It Real.

With Black Lives Matter seemingly on ice until after the election, Hillary’s campaign made it through October without America’s monthly riot (although I’d forgotten the big black flash mob attack on white Temple University students in Philadelphia). But Chicago, America’s role model for one-party Democratic rule, remained vibrant.

Mayor Rahm released video of a dubious police shooting late last November. Ever since, blacks have been blasting away at blacks in vast numbers, because Black Lives Matter. Or something.

The Melting Snowflakes of Chapel Hill

7th November 2016

Read it.

On October 18 Diana West, the author of American Betrayal, was scheduled to give a lecture about Political Correctness in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. However, the local Progressive/Muslim alliance got wind of what she was up to, and tried to shut her down.

The event was sponsored by a group called Issues Confronting Our Nation (ICON), and was billed as part of the ICON Lecture Series: “Where Did “Politically Correct” Come from and What Is It Doing?” (Cultural Marxism in America). The title was enough to send the lefties into paroxysms of high dudgeon, and they exerted pressure on the venue — an outfit called Extraordinary Ventures — to cancel the lecture.

In this case the venue did not cancel, and the event went ahead as scheduled. Ms. West’s talk may be seen in its entirety in the video below. In addition to the fracas over her lecture, she talks about Marx, Lenin, the Fabians, the Frankfurt School, SDS, and the communist infiltration of America in the 1930s and ’40s.

The Flight from White: “White House Wants to Add New Racial Category for Middle Eastern People”

1st October 2016

Steve Sailer reads the tea leaves for you.

From USA Today, big news in the ongoing Flight from White as more opportunists lobby to get out from under the burden of being considered officially white in contemporary America.

Think of how much inconvenience Syrian immigrant Tony Rezko had to go through to qualify for minority set-asides. Barack Obama’s real estate adviser had to recruit African American frontmen, like Black Muslim founder Elijah Muhammad’s son, to qualify for minority set-asides in order to get contracts to run Chicago park hot dog stands and O’Hare Panda Expresses.

For example, this federal move could help ease the #OscarsSoWhite crisis. Jerusalem-born Natalie Portman, who won Best Actress in 2011 for The Black Swan, would be officially reclassified as nonwhite, which I’m sure will make Spike Lee and Nate Parker much happier. (Somebody should ask them.)

Survey of University Admission Directors

For example, “in a potentially notable finding, a significant minority of college admissions directors now say (in contrast to past surveys but consistent with the views of many advocates for Asian-American applicants) that their colleges generally admit only Asian applicants with higher grades and test scores than other applicants.”  That is, four out of ten directors at both public and private schools indicated that they believe Asian-American applicants are held to a higher standard at “some” places; and 41 percent of public-school respondents and 30 percent of private-school respondents admitted that this was the case at their own university or college.  That is, indeed, “notable.”

“Defendants incite people to violence and cause violence by telling those people that they are under attack. Defendants are encouraging disaffected blacks, Black Muslims, Muslims and others allied with them including certain whites to ignore, disrespect, and assault law enforcement officials, and commit violence and lethal force,” the lawsuit states, according to the paper.

General Mills’ Ad Agency Quotas Leave a Sour Taste

9th September 2016

Read it.

General Mills announced last week that advertising agencies hoping to win contracts with the giant Golden Valley company must now have creative departments with two quite specific demographic features: At least 50 percent of employees in such departments must be female and at least 20 percent must be minorities (“General Mills adds diversity requisite,” Sept. 3).

According to the company’s website, General Mills’ “leadership” is composed of 19 men and eight women, with three of the men and two of the women racial minorities, or so it would appear.

If you find the term “so it would appear” in this context awkward and perhaps offensive, so do I. But so be it with human bean counting.

Question: What if the federal government — say, the Army or the Navy — demanded that senior leadership at General Mills, as well as at Kellogg’s and Post, be at least 50 percent women? This, or their pitches to sell boatloads of Cheerios, Rice Krispies and Honey Bunches of Oats would be thrown overboard? Same thing if their senior minority executives didn’t constitute 20 percent?

Given that there is a total of 27 men and women in official General Mills leadership, would the company be obliged to subtract six men while adding six women so its new lineup would have 13 men and 14 women? Would this remake General Mills as newly kosher in the eyes of the Pentagon? As for minority executives, only one would need to be added — so long as he or she was a she. Otherwise, everything would be out of whack again.

If General Mills couldn’t make all of this work according to federal guidelines, would bureaucrats give the company a pass as long as CEO Ken Powell, a very good man, were eventually succeeded by Betty Crocker herself? Just wondering again. And would ad agencies that got eliminated even before their proposals got to first base have the right to describe the whole exercise as a “crock”?

When Will New York Sink? (We Should Live So Long….)

9th September 2016

Read it.

Klaus Jacob, a German professor affiliated with Columbia’s University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, is a geophysicist by profession and a doomsayer by disposition. I’ve gotten to know him over the past few years, as I’ve sought to understand the greatest threat to life in New York as we know it. Jacob has a white beard and a ponderous accent: Imagine if Werner Herzog happened to be a renowned expert on disaster risk. Jacob believes most people live in an irrational state of “risk denial,” and he takes delight in dispelling their blissful ignorance. “If you want to survive an earthquake, don’t buy a brownstone,” he once cautioned me, citing the catastrophic potential of a long-dormant fault line that runs under the city. When Mayor Bloomberg announced nine years ago an initiative to plant a million trees, Jacob thought, That’s nice — but what about tornadoes?

For the past 15 years or so, Jacob has been primarily preoccupied with a more existential danger: the rising sea. The latest scientific findings suggest that a child born today in this island metropolis may live to see the waters around it swell by six feet, as the previously hypothetical consequences of global warming take on an escalating — and unstoppable — force. “I have made it my mission,” Jacob says, “to think long term.” The life span of a city is measured in centuries, and New York, which is approaching its fifth, probably doesn’t have another five to go, at least in any presently recognizable form. Instead, Jacob has said, the city will become a “gradual Atlantis.”

Sky is falling. Film at 11. Women and minorities hardest hit.

Native American Activists in New Mexico Say Hispanic Fiesta Ignores Horrors of Pueblo Tribes

For centuries, northern New Mexico Hispanic residents have held an elaborate festival in Santa Fe to honor Spanish conquistador Don Diego De Vargas, who reclaimed the city following an American Indian revolt. There is music, dancing, a parade and the reenactment of De Vargas’s “peaceful reoccupation” of what is now New Mexico’s capital.

But after 301 years, an emboldened group of Native American activists said it’s time to change a celebration centered on the conquest of New Mexico’s Pueblo tribes. They say the annual Santa Fe Fiesta ignores the horrors inflicted on the indigenous population during the colonial era.

Union’s Union Lands Union in Big Trouble With NLRB

23rd August 2016

Read it.

The Michigan State Employees Association (MSEA) and its President, Kenneth Moore, were faulted with improperly handling its dealings with its own central office employees. Those employees are actually represented by a union within a union, called the Central Office Staff Association (COSA).

The NLRB determined MSEA violated the collective bargaining rights of COSA employees when it suspended and then fired an administrative assistant. The NLRB found Moore wrongfully fired the administrative assistant because he relied on a unilateral directive as grounds for her termination. It also found that Moore “unlawfully reprimanded” an employee for what amounted to union activity.

Thus demonstrating that unions aren’t about the rights of workers, or even benefits for workers, but about power for union offilials. Jerry Pournelle’s Iron Law of Bureaucracy is validated once again.
