Tenn. High School Separates Students at Lunchtime Based on Grades

2nd November 2013

Read it.

School officials told the station the practice of sending students to the auditorium for a learning lab before they eat has been in place for two years as part of a statewide pilot program.

So it’s just a result of giving them extra help. Boy, that’s racist!

Parent Paul Morecroft said he’s concerned about his daughter being separated based on her academic standing and has complained to school administrators.

“To me, it’s considered separation because you have your special needs kids and the kids getting the good grades on one side, and the kids getting below an 80 on the other side,” Morecroft said. “I call it a civil rights violation and segregation, no doubt.”

Proof positive that low IQ is hereditary.

The ‘Intentional Poor’ — SWPL Fantasy

31st October 2013

Read it.

Of course, no matter how bad the job market is, there are clear distinctions between those who have the privilege to opt for poverty and those who are poor through no choice of their own. If things get rough, Price has a career to fall back on.  Banjo can return to his childhood bedroom, where he stayed before hitting the road. Corey’s young charges aren’t stuck in high-crime neighborhoods with subpar schools and services like most of America’s poor. And people who choose poverty are often free to make exceptions; despite his otherwise modest lifestyle, Price pays $53 a month for a cell phone and owns both an iPad and a MacBook Air.

So it’s all just pretend, sort of an extended vacation camping trip.

The demographics of  these two groups are also starkly different: The pockets of people who choose poverty are nearly all white, experts say, while around half of the impoverished in the U.S. are black and Hispanic.

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

The Biter Bit: Obamacare Jacks Up Her Insurance

29th October 2013

Read it.

“I spent two years defending Obamacare. I had constituents scream at me, spit at me and call me names that I can’t put in print. The congressman was not re-elected in 2010 mainly because of the anti-Obamacare anger. When the congressman was not re-elected, I also (along with the rest of our staff) lost my job. I was upset that because of the health care issue, I didn’t have a job anymore but still defended Obamacare because it would make health care available to everyone at, what I assumed, would be an affordable price. I have now learned that I was wrong. Very wrong.”

When Klinkhamer lost her congressional job, she had to buy an individual policy on the open market.

Three years ago, it was $225 a month with a $2,500 deductible. Each year it went up a little to, as of Sept. 1, $291 with a $3,500 deductible. Then, a few weeks ago, she got a letter.

“Blue Cross,” she said, “stated my current coverage would expire on Dec. 31, and here are my options: I can have a plan with similar benefits for $647.12 [or] I can have a plan with similar [but higher] pricing for $322.32 but with a $6,500 deductible.”

She went on, “Blue Cross also tells me that if I don’t pick one of the options, they will just assume I want the one for $647. … Someone please tell me why my premium in January will be $356 more than in December?”

My question is where we will find sufficient roosting space for all of these homeward-bound chickens.

A 91-0 Football Game Isn’t Bullying: It’s About Economics and Culture

24th October 2013

Read it.

Aledo High in Texas beat Fort Worth Western Hills 91-0 in a recent football game, and that was with Aledo pulling starters early, slowing down its offense and operating under a clock that never stopped. Aledo is the top team in Class 4A in Texas and has blown out everyone it’s played by at least 41 points, including two 84-7 games. But it took no joy from this one. “I’m upset about it,” Aledo coach Tim Buchanan told the Star-Telegram of Fort Worth. “I don’t like it. I sit there the whole third and fourth quarter and try to think how I can keep us from scoring.”

Yeah, I really want to play on a team where the coach has to worry about keeping us from scoring.

Winners win, and losers lose — and losers whine, and in these degenerate modern times, that’s all it takes to win.

Feds Try to Eliminate Housing for the Deaf — at Complex BuiltfFor Hearing-Impaired

22nd October 2013

Read it.

“I think it’s about the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard in a while,” said Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who attempted to negotiate the impasse. “There are a lot of stories of out-of-control regulators, but this just seems to be going to the extreme.”

A 2005 federal study found that the U.S. had virtually no affordable housing for the deaf. So the federal government helped build Apache ASL Trails, a 75-unit apartment building in Tempe, Ariz., designed specifically for the deaf. Ninety-percent of the units are currently occupied by deaf and deaf-blind seniors.

But now, the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development says Apache ASL Trails violates civil rights law — because it shows a preference for the hearing-impaired.

“A preference or priority based on a particular diagnosis or disability and excluding others with different disabilities is explicitly prohibited by HUD’s Section 504 regulations,” says a HUD memo about the project. “There is no legal authority contained in any of Apache Trails funding to permit such a priority or preference.”

Your tax dollars at work.

Circus Ordered to Take Down Posters After One Complaint From a Woman Who Is Scared of Clowns

20th October 2013

Read it.

A council has removed posters advertising a circus following a complaint from a woman who is scared of clowns.

Leighton Buzzard Town Hall Council said it took down the adverts after one complaint – in a town of 28,000 people.

An unnamed female resident told the authority the posters were scaring her whenever she drove past them, explaining that she suffers from coulrophobia.

Oh, well, that’s all right then.

Phobia expert and hypnotherapist Christine Black suggested the complainant and council may have gone about addressing the issue in the wrong way.

‘The council have merely accommodated her fear,’ she said.

‘The lady is trying to manage her fear by controlling her environment but she needs to control the irrational fear.’

Good luck with that advice….

The Wannabe Oppressed

17th October 2013

Read it.

What do America’s college students want? They want to be oppressed. More precisely, a surprising number of students at America’s finest colleges and universities wish to appear as victims — to themselves, as well as to others — without the discomfort of actually experiencing victimization. Here is where global warming comes in. The secret appeal of campus climate activism lies in its ability to turn otherwise happy, healthy, and prosperous young people into an oppressed class, at least in their own imaginings. Climate activists say to the world, “I’ll save you.” Yet deep down they’re thinking, “Oppress me.”

In his important new book, The Fanaticism of the Apocalypse: Save the Earth, Punish Human Beings, French intellectual gadfly Pascal Bruckner does the most thorough job yet of explaining the climate movement as a secular religion, an odd combination of deformed Christianity and reconstructed Marxism. (You can find Bruckner’s excellent article based on the book here.) Bruckner describes a historical process wherein “the long list of emblematic victims — Jews, blacks, slaves, proletarians, colonized peoples — was replaced, little by little, with the Planet.” The planet, says Bruckner, “has become the new proletariat that must be saved from exploitation.”

The Weapon of Unlimited Victimhood: Pigford and Shirley Sherrod’s Vengeance

12th October 2013

The Other McCain turns over a rock.

Heads are still shaking about the unspeakable cruelty of Shirley Sherrod suing Susie Breitbart, a widow with four kids, as a substitute defendant for her late husband, because Sherrod blames Andrew Breitbart for her ouster from the Department of Agriculture.

Tom Vilsack demanded Sherrod’s resignation in July 2010 because Democrat political operatives at the White House panicked after Breitbart released the video of an NAACP audience’s enthusiastic approval of Sherrod’s story about how she denied assistance to a white farmer. The political panic occurred after that video got played in edited form on a Fox News broadcast, but Breitbart was not responsible for how Fox News depicted the story, nor was he responsible for Tom Vilsack acting as a political hatchet-man.

Oregon Man Who Lost Son to Suicide Killed in Colo. on Awareness Walk

An Oregon man who lost his gay son to suicide and was walking across the country to raise awareness about bullying is dead after being hit by a truck in eastern Colorado.

Rejection of common sense biological and evolutionary observations are much in vogue among the social engineers and their activist counterparts.  But it bears repeating — yet again — that wishing something were so, because in your mind a just world would make it so, does not, in fact, replace what is.  And yet it is we who are labeled anti-science — albeit by those whose idea of science is the politicized kind that can be “settled” and based around contemporary consensus when empirical data doesn’t fall their way.

What Never? Well, Hardly Never

24th September 2013

Read it.

Obamacare does, of course, have something to do with the debt. But that aside, is it true that past Congresses have never used the debt ceiling in order to get their way on non-budgetary issues?

No it is not true. Indeed, Obama’s assertion is so untrue that Glenn Kessler, the “Fact Checker” at the Washington Post gives it four Pinocchios.

It turns out that Congress has been doing what Obama says it has never done since 1973. That year, led by Ted Kennedy and Walter Mondale, the Senate sought to make a campaign finance reform bill a condition of raising the debt ceiling.

Obama, either a bold-faced liar or terminally ignorant. Not a great set of choices….

The Cruelty of the Overclass

8th September 2013

John Derbyshire, Patron Saint of Dyspepsia, is admirably pessimistic today.

Gelernter was not the first to notice the casual, ruthless arrogance with which the elites impose their will on the rest of us, but the process has rarely been described so well.

With the passing of sixteen years, the arrogance has only become more gross, shameless, and cruel. I thought I had the measure of our overclass, but I was shocked at the heartlessness with which Paula Deen was treated.

Hey, she was white. What did she expect?

Liberalism is not just wrongheaded; it is malicious. And it never quits until its target has surrendered unconditionally to overclass norms. You thought they’d finished tossing and goring the Boy Scouts of America? Think again….

Hey, they’re male and straight. What did they expect?

Europe is of course the overclass ideal. In Germany, a swarm of state agents converged on a home last Thursday and abducted four children to prevent their being homeschooled. Coming soon to an American household near you.

Hitler and Mussolini and Lenin and Stalin were not aberrations but rather natural developments of European intellectual movements. Be careful what you wish for….

Solar Panels Create Safety Hazards for Firefighters

8th September 2013

Read it.

New Jersey firefighters were unable to save a warehouse due to the building’s 7,000 solar panels, according to local reports.

The fire chief on scene refused to allow firefighters on top of the building due to multiple hazards posed by the building’s solar panels.

Heh.

Electric shock and slipping and tripping on solar panel roof displays are just two of a number of potential hazards in fighting fires at “green” structures, say experts. Others include structural collapse because of the weight of the panels on the roof and inhalation exposure as solar batteries exposed to fire are capable of generating extremely caustic fumes and gases.

Heh heh.

“We may very well not be able to save buildings that have alternative energy,” New Jersey’s acting Fire Marshall William Kramer said to the Star Ledger.

Why can’t we talk about IQ?

25th August 2013

Read it.

Because talking about IQ implies that some people are better than others at something, and that Disrespects The Narrative.

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013.

But Cox’s assertion is all too common. There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.

‘What educated people believe’ is, of course, Voice of the Crust-speak for The Narrative, as is ‘the lay wisdom’.

For people who have studied mental ability, what’s truly frustrating is the déjà vu they feel each time a media firestorm like this one erupts. Attempts by experts in the field to defend the embattled messenger inevitably fall on deaf ears. When the firestorm is over, the media’s mindset always resets to a state of comfortable ignorance, ready to be shocked all over again when the next messenger comes along.

That’s why they’re called the LameStream Media. These terms exist for a reason.

At stake here, incidentally, is not just knowledge for the sake of knowledge, but also how science informs public policy. The U.S. education system, for example, is suffused with mental testing, yet few in the political classes understand cognitive ability research. Angry and repeated condemnations of the science will not help.

They’re not interested in ‘helping’, they’re interested in defending the Party Line. That’s their job. Science has nothing to do with it — as is plain by what they call ‘science’, like the Global Warming scam.

In terms of group differences, people of northeast Asian descent have higher average IQ scores than people of European lineage, who in turn have higher average scores than people of sub-Saharan African descent. The average score for Hispanic Americans falls somewhere between the white and black American averages. Psychologists have tested and long rejected the notion that score differences can be explained simply by biased test questions. It is possible that genetic factors could influence IQ differences among ethnic groups, but many scientists are withholding judgment until DNA studies are able to link specific gene combinations with IQ.

But that is Contrary To The Narrative, and therefore constitutes ThoughtCrime. Those who are guilty of ThoughtCrime get subjected to the Two Minute Hate, as happened to this guy.

John Derbyshire, Patron Saint of Dyspepsia, explains it all to you:

Nor is it quite the case that “emotion trumps reason.” What mostly trumps reason is the yearning for respectability, leading us to conform to ambient dogmas—in the present-day West, the dogmas of Cultural Marxism, which waft around us like a noxious vapor.

“Purported IQ per se” is how you say “IQ” when you are a liberal or a race-whipped conservative with minimal interest in the human sciences and whose intellectual tissues have absorbed the poisonous gas of Cultural Marxism to some degree.

The practical effect of this is, of course, hypocrisy:

A neighbor of ours, a white lady of seamlessly liberal opinions, was dismayed to find that her normal, bright daughter was assigned to one of these inclusion classes. She came around to talk to us about it, quite distraught. I recall sitting on the sofa listening in dropped-jaw amazement to this straight-ticket left-Democrat Hillary voter wailing about her child being marooned among “DeShawns and Lateeshas.” (Those may not be the precise names she used, but they were names like that.)

Diversity For Thee But Not For Me is why, for example, nobody in Congress sends their kids to D.C. public schools. (Neither does Obama — God forbid his mulatto children should have to rub shoulders with, you know, actual Negroes.)

Science insists that there is an external world beyond our emotions and wish-fulfillment fantasies. It claims that we can find out true facts about that world, including facts with no immediate technological application. The human sciences insist even more audaciously that we ourselves are part of that world and can be described as dispassionately as stars, rocks, and microbes. Perhaps one day it will be socially acceptable to believe this.

But that’s not the way to bet.

The Unsurprising Sexism of Male Progressives

25th August 2013

Kathy Shaidle blows the whistle.

During my stint on the left, I met white-ribbon-wearing “male feminists” who were sincere, thoughtful, and decent, but many others ranged from patronizing to abusive.

So sexist “progressive” men such as Anthony Weiner, Bob Filner, and Eliot Spitzer don’t surprise me, but why is anyone else shocked by their hypocrisy? I’m not just thinking of Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy; second-wave feminism began as a revolt not against mean old fathers and bosses, but against the misogynist college boys running the ’60s peace movement. (Eldridge Cleaver, anyone?)

The Tragedy of TOMS Shoes

10th August 2013

Read it.

First, the TOMS-shoes model of giving is characteristic of Western imperialism. Shoes manufactured outside of the United States (in China, to be exact), are shipped back to the U.S. en masse for sale, and to other countries for what are termed “Shoe Drops.” For these Shoe Drops, volunteers and TOMS employees from the U.S. fly to various countries to distribute shoes to children living in poor communities. At best, this is a misguided attempt at aid, and provides the possibility that the eyes of the Americans who go will be opened to the fact that there are people throughout the world living in extreme poverty. At worst, these trips are a form of poverty tourism and economic imperialism. Wealthy Americans spend more money on a plane ticket than most of the people whose communities they visit make in a year (or two years, or three!), to give children a pair of shoes which might have cost $5 to produce. Moreover, it supports the belief that these people cannot make it on their own, so rather than helping them to develop a healthy economy, we should give them handouts – an imperialist concept if there ever was one.

No, it isn’t ‘characteristic of Western imperialism’, it’s characteristic of SWPL welfarism; ‘progressives’ treat natives in Africa the same way they treat their descendants in America, with unctuous contempt and racist condescension.

“Porgy, you’re a white man, you have to help us.”

Moreover, while Shoe Drops in theory sound like a way to benefit a community, they have the potential to be devastating to it as well. If anyone makes and/or sells shoes in an area where TOMS does a Shoe Drop, all of their chances at making a living are wiped out. TOMS’ model of giving does nothing to support entrepreneurs in developing countries. Rather, TOMS’ model of giving is detrimental to the efforts of these people.

“Oh, thank you, Sir Thomas. I’ve been trying to get that notion across to His Grace for some time now.”

TOMS shoes One-for-One model is not a sustainable form of aid. TOMS’ success in distributing shoes to children in poor communities depends on Americans buying TOMS shoes. You could say the same of organizations like World Vision, or Compassion International – they are only able to help children so long as people continue to give them money. However, giving money to NGOs is not going to go out of style the way that a certain style of shoes might.

That’s because the whole point of such programs is not to help the recipients, but to make affluent hipsters feel good about themselves.

TOMS is a for-profit company. There are shoes listed for sale on their website which retail for $140 – meaning that, for $140, a girl in the U.S. can buy a pair of shoes which probably cost $5 to make and to transport, and a child in Argentina will receive a pair of shoes which also probably cost $5 to make and transport, and at TOMS shoes the company executives are laughing all the way to the bank. The least expensive shoes listed on TOMS website for an adult cost $44, which still represents an enormous profit margin. All of this to say – while TOMS may be doing something which could be considered a good deed, they are making a great deal of money while doing so.

And laughing about all of the tofu-brained ‘progressives’ that they are milking. Just like any other aspect of the ‘fashion industry’. I utter the magic works ‘green tech’ and suddenly their appears a whole industry devoted to extracting money (especially taxpayers’ money) from people who are desperate to feel g0od about themselves while enriching the cynics who are waiting with the clippers to shear the sheeple.

ThoughtCrime in Academia

9th August 2013

Read it.

Geoffrey Miller, a psychology professor, has been censured by the University of New Mexico, two months after he sent out a fat-shaming Twitter post that caused an angry Internet uproar.

It may have taken Miller less than a minute to write out this message and hit the “Tweet” button: “Dear obese Ph.D. applicants: if you didn’t have the willpower to stop eating carbs, you won’t have the willpower to do a dissertation #truth.” But the consequences of that tweet will last much longer.

According to a university memo released on Tuesday, Miller — who has tenure at the University of New Mexico and was a visiting professor at New York University this summer — will be required to:

Not serve on any committee involving the admission of graduate students to the psychology department for the duration of his time as a faculty member at the university.
Work with the faculty co-advisers of the psychology department’s diversity organization to develop a plan for sensitivity training on obesity (for himself to undergo, said a university spokeswoman). The plan must be approved by a co-adviser or by the chair of the department.
Be assigned a faculty mentor for three years with whom he will meet on a regular basis to discuss potential problems.
Have his work monitored by the chair of the department.
Apologize to the department and his colleagues for his behavior.

Miller did not immediately respond to an e-mail seeking comment.

I’ll just bet he didn’t. You depart from the Narrative, you get sent to a re-education camp, as we see.

Florida School Bus Beatdown Goes Unnoticed by Self-Styled Civil Rights Activists

8th August 2013

Read it.

A viral video showing the beating of a 13-year-old white boy by three African-American youths in Florida has left hundreds of thousands of viewers horrified, but critics say the case doesn’t seem to be attracting much sympathy from self-styled civil rights activists.

In the chilling video, three 15-year-old boys repeatedly beat and kick a victim police said was left with a broken arm and two black eyes.

Although Florida came under fire in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting and George Zimmerman’s acquittal by activists Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson – who called it an “apartheid state” – neither has spoken publicly about the bus incident. But one reason the case has not become as racially charged as other attacks may be that many news outlets have either not shown the first few seconds, before the victim goes down behind a seat, and others blur out his face to the point his race is no longer apparent.

Zimmerman, Martin, Yglesias, and False Stereotypes

19th July 2013

Steve Sailer spells it out.

 But being right is racist.

That’s one of the causes of the current vast eruption of liberal white rage — out of all the screwed up stuff that happens on the streets of America every year, the mainstream media picked this incident out to put all their chips on in their condemnation of profiling.

But then, it turned out that Zimmerman’s suspicions were highly accurate. As one commenter says, Trayvon Martin turned out to be a petty criminal with violent tendencies and an apparent history of burglary.

Oops.

 The Martin-Zimmerman story should be an occasion for national reflection about the perniciousness of today’s dominant stereotypes, specifically:

– White liberals’ favorite stereotypes about blacks as the eternal victims of the violent white racists hiding under every bed

– Black males’ favorite stereotypes about themselves as bulletproof tough guys who are morally justified by their victimhood in responding to being dissed with violence.

These two stereotypes have the peculiar disadvantage of being both not true individually (unlike the majority of less socially reputable stereotypes) and interacting with horrible consequences. White liberal hatred for white conservatives and black love of gangsta rap interact very, very badly.

    Hi, I’m Tammy, and I want to say something to you white people. It is not enough to feel bad. [Cheers] It is not enough to not be a bigot. Because if you’re not actively dismantling white supremacy, and checking your privilege every single day [cheers], and thinking about racism the way that our young black men in our community have to think about it, you’re not doing it right, OK?

I guess black people are right — white people DO cause all the trouble in the world.

Perhaps if we give her a revolver with one cartridge and leave her along in a room to do the honorable thing, it will solve the problem.

Somehow I doubt it.

What Is McCarthyism?

13th July 2013

Maggie Gallagher explores the asymmetric nature of Leftist opinion.

It seems very strange to me that so many artists and people on the left are supporting the idea that to make art in the mainstream you have to have the right political opinions. This used to be considered the heart of McCarthyism: loyalty oaths for filmmakers as the condition forworking in the film industry. (These were imposed by the industry, not the government, remember, in response to public pressure).
