Fun and Games at the DNC

24th October 2017

Read it.

The TL;DR version of this story  (which comes from the left-leaning site ‘The Intercept’) is that Democrat National Committee chairhumanoid Thomas Perez, representing the radical left Democrat mainstream, is purging the acolytes of Keith Ellison, who represent the extreme left/Antifa/Bernie Sanders openly communist wing of the Democrat Party. And they are doing so under the banner of diversity, even though the people they are purging are mostly black, Hispanic, and/or gay.

Now We Know

19th October 2017

ZMan points the finger.

One of the mysteries of the election campaign has been the ongoing Russian hacking conspiracy nonsense that was forced on us by the Democrats after the election. The absurdity of it should have been enough to get the story laughed off the stage. Even if the Russians had meddled in the election, that happens all the time. The Chinese invested heavily in the Clintons during the 1996 election. Israeli maintains massive lobbying efforts in the US, including campaign operations. It’s the nature of empires.

Well, we may now have an answer. It may simply have been the old Progressive tactic of preemptively accusing others of something they are doing. The Hill is reporting that the FBI had stumbled onto a plot that looks a lot like bribery by the Russians to, wait for it, get the Clinton’s support in their efforts to grow their nuclear business inside the US. This goes back to when Cankles was working for Obama as Secretary of State and had the authority to approve foreign energy deals, like selling uranium to Russia.

Black Liberation Group Releases New Project For ‘Electoral Justice’ For Black People

17th October 2017

Read it.

It’s amazing the amount of time black people just spend Being Black. When do they have time for real life?

The Electoral Justice Project will consist of two parts. First, the hiring of black organizers called the Electoral Justice League to focus on local strategies and champion certain issues facing the black community. The second part entails a national help desk to reach out and help black organizations with electoral strategies.

Of course, exactly why black people need ‘organizing’ is never stated. I can’t help the feeling that this is just another effort to pay people to go around stirring up trouble. ‘Local strategies’ seems to mean ‘ways we can pressure white people to pay us guilt money’. What ‘certain issues’ are going to be ‘championed’ remains deliciously vague.

The Movement for Black Lives is an umbrella group for over sixty groups that fight for black liberation. The organization released a policy platform last year, calling for an end to the war on black people and a free access to high school for all black Americans.

‘Liberation’ from what? The necessity to work hard, save money, take care of your kids, and spend time relaxing?

What ‘war on black people’? The only ‘war’ I see is the war on white people just for being white.

Man Declares ‘All White People Are Evil,’ Spits In Homeless Man’s Face

Where don’t all black Americans have access to ‘free high school’? The public school system in the United States is devoted to free school through high school for everyone, even illegal immigrants. Any black kid who is willing to study (aye, there’s the rub) can go to high school for free.

You have to wonder how much of this stuff is just made up to have something to do other than real life.

End of the Gatekeepers

15th October 2017

ZMan reads the Doom.

An axiom of modern, life is that the arrival of social justice warriors is a sign that a business or industry has entered a death spiral. It may not be dead, but its days of making big money have come to a close. The smart-money men, interested only in making money, have left the scene, leaving the people with other agendas to take over and impose those agendas. That’s when the gals start running off the guys for being male and cook up schemes to help under-represented minorities realize their potential.

Liberals and Drama

8th October 2017

Freeberg scratches his head.

In real drama, you have to have a meaningful event or two happening. “A is a victim, B is the oppressor, C is the ignoramus and D is uniquely enlightened sage who can see what’s wrong” — if it is true at the end, it will all have to be true at the beginning. Right? If everything that’s true and that matters at the beginning, is still true at the end, there’s no place to put any kind of a story. You can’t have a plot. And, indeed, when I look at this depressing wilderness of movies made by liberals, I see they tend to strain under this problem. There is no plot, because nothing is happening, and nothing is happening because there’s no shift in these roles. The victim is still a victim. The ignoramus is still an ignoramus and the enlightened empathy-authority is still an enlightened empathy-authority. Maybe the oppressor stops oppressing, but that’s all you get.

Black Lives Matter Students Shut Down the ACLU’s Campus Free Speech Event Because ‘Liberalism Is White Supremacy’

4th October 2017

Read it.

The disruption was livestreamed on BLM at W&M’s Facebook page. Students took to the stage just a few moments after Gastañaga began her remarks. At first, she attempted to spin the demonstration as a welcome example of the kind of thing she had come to campus to discuss, commenting “Good, I like this,” as they lined up and raised their signs. “I’m going to talk to you about knowing your rights, and protests and demonstrations, which this illustrates very well. Then I’m going to respond to questions from the moderators, and then questions from the audience.”

It was the last remark she was able to make before protesters drowned her out with cries of, “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too.” They also chanted, “the oppressed are not impressed,” “shame, shame, shame, shame,” (an ode to the Faith Militant’s treatment of Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, though why anyone would want to be associated with the religious fanatics in that particular conflict is beyond me), “blood on your hands,” “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution,” and, uh, “liberalism is white supremacy.”

These people need to read up on what happened during the French Revolution. What goes around, comes around.

Why Does the Left Ignore Black-on-Black Crime?

4th October 2017

Walter Williams is not afraid to ask the hard questions.

Short Answer: Because the ThoughtCrime of Noticing must not be allowed to disturb the Narrative.

Long Answer: It would destroy the Clever Plastic Disguise that bad things happen to black people solely because of White Privilege and raaaaaaacist oppression. In truth, black people have a separate subculture from the rest of us, and that subculture is deeply degenerate — it encourages black people to define themselves solely in (adversarial) relation to white people, and creates a bizarre inverted social system in which the normal virtues that lead to success are castigated (can’t say ‘denigrated’ these days) as ‘acting white’ and therefore some kind of betrayal of one’s ‘blackness’.

Gay Activists Are Furious Because Teacher Can’t Tell Fifth Graders to Use Gender-Neutral Pronouns

29th September 2017

Read it.

Gay and transgender activists in Tallahassee, Florida are really mad because the taxpayer-funded local school district reassigned a fifth-grade teacher after she told the little kids in her classroom to address her with the title “Mx.” and refer to her using the third-person plural pronouns “they,” “them” and “their.”

The teacher, Chloe Bressack, pulled her transgender pronoun stunt at Tallahassee’s Canopy Oaks Elementary School earlier this school year.

Bressack, who identifies as gender neutral, sent a note home to parents saying that she expected their fifth-grade children to address her as “Mx. Bressack” and to use plural pronouns when discussing her singular self.

The backlash from parents was intense.

School district officials responded to the outpouring of parental complaints by hastily removing Bressack from her fifth-grade classroom and transferring her to the school district’s adult basic education program.

I’m sure the adults in the basic education program will admire and applaud her commitment to ‘diversity’.

Hard Data, Hollow Protests

28th September 2017

Read it.

The FBI released its official crime tally for 2016 today, and the data flies in the face of the rhetoric that professional athletes rehearsed in revived Black Lives Matter protests over the weekend.  Nearly 900 additional blacks were killed in 2016 compared with 2015, bringing the black homicide-victim total to 7,881. Those 7,881 “black bodies,” in the parlance of Ta-Nehisi Coates, are 1,305 more than the number of white victims (which in this case includes most Hispanics) for the same period, though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population. The increase in black homicide deaths last year comes on top of a previous 900-victim increase between 2014 and 2015.

Who is killing these black victims? Not whites, and not the police, but other blacks.

Transgender Bullies Make Worldwide News After Attack in London’s Hyde Park

17th September 2017

While some of these headlines are misleading, wrongly depicting this incident as a “fight” between two sides, when in fact it was an attack by transgender activists on a member of the feminist group, even inaccurate coverage is better than no coverage. Sunlight is the best disinfectant, and the more attention that is focused on this issue, the more people will become aware of the hateful intolerance of transgender activists, who seek to silence their critics. Because facts and logic are against them, they resort to terroristic intimidation tactics against their opponents.

Basic freedoms and important matters of public policy are at stake in this debate, and it is obvious which side is trying to silence dissent by labeling disagreement as “hate.” People need to wake the hell up.

The Revolution Devours Its Children: Inside the New Battle Against Google

17th September 2017

Read it.

One of the biggest, most embarrassing divorces in the normally quiet world of Washington think tanks blew into the open earlier this month, when writer Barry Lynn and nine others defected from New America. Lynn said they were pushed out of the influential Democratic think tank after he wrote a post this summer criticizing Google, one of its key funders. Anne-Marie Slaughter, who heads the foundation, called the story reporting the news “false”—then wrote a long Medium post walking her charge back.

One thing the Crust does not do is bite the hands that fund it.

Whatever the final trigger for the split, its roots lay far deeper than this summer’s scuffle. The Google controversy marked the most public emergence of an intellectually combative group jostling for a role as the new economic brain of the Democratic Party.

Raising the bar from ‘moron’ to ‘dimwit’. If the Democrat Party has an ‘economic brain’ other than Karl Marx, I have yet to see evidence of it.

Lynn’s group, called Open Markets, has spent six years arguing that the Democrats have become too comfortable with corporate money and power, and need to rally around a new principle: breaking up monopolies. As the party remains locked in a struggle to reboot itself, unable to craft a unifying vision in the Trump era, Lynn and his group are trying to push it into a new fight against global corporate titans, targeting big companies like Google by name, and arguing that it’s time to use federal antitrust law to chip away at their influence. They see the fight as both a boon to democracy and a political framework that could excite voters in a new, more energized populist moment.

But the Democrat Party is all about corporate money and power. These people must not be paying attention.

Row Over AI That ‘Identifies Gay Faces’

A facial recognition experiment that claims to be able to distinguish between gay and heterosexual people has sparked a row between its creators and two leading LGBT rights groups.

Science deniers!

The Stanford University study claims its software recognises facial features relating to sexual orientation that are not perceived by human observers.

Although human observers are pretty cunning. Google the term ‘gaydar’.

Sure. ‘LGBT rights groups’ are famous for their scientific expertise compared to Stanford.

Dangerous it may be; reality tends to be dangerous, and admitting reality is certainly dangerous to political prejudices.

But the scientists involved say these are “knee-jerk” reactions.

Penn Law Prof. Amy Wax on Her Controversial ‘Return to Cultural Norms’ Editorial

8th September 2017

Read it.

University of Pennsylvania law professor Amy Wax argued in an editorial that many of the problems plaguing American society—opioid abuse, unemployment, inner-city violence—can be traced to “the breakdown of the country’s bourgeois culture.”

Wax and her co-author suggested the “re-embrace” of cultural norms such as education, marriage before children, and respect for authority by Americans would “significantly reduce society’s pathologies.”

The firestorm that followed the editorial’s publication culminated in 33 members of the Penn Law faculty publicly denouncing Wax in an open letter published in The Daily Pennsylvanian. The professors did not engage Wax’s arguments on the merits, but instead spoke of their concern for an ideal educational experience in which people “respect one another without bias or stereotype.”

In other words, she was subjected to a Two Minute Hate for ThoughtCrime by those who love Big Brother.

Not really news, but a useful reminder.

Academics Discover New Way to Get Offended: ‘Invisibility Microaggressions’

Two professors claim to have discovered a new form of politically incorrect offense called “invisibility microaggressions,” which are said to be even more subtle than regular microaggressions. Their proposed solution for these offenses is to get rid of meritocracy.

I am not making this up.

Campus Reform reported on Thursday that a recent study by two professors, Jasmine Mena, who teaches psychology at Bucknell University, and Annemarie Vaccaro of the University of Rhode Island, claim that they are the first academics to discover that “invisibility” is a form of microaggressions not previously described in feminist academia.

“There is a growing body of literature that suggests invisibility is a common form of exclusion — or microaggression,” Mena and Vaccaro say. “However, no studies have focused deeply on the ways women faculty and staff experience invisibility microaggressions on college campuses.”

Paul Anka Won’t Budge in Battle With Charity Over Mar-a-Lago Cancellation

31st August 2017

Paul Anka will not be a victim of the political correctness that prompted more than a dozen charities to cancel or move fundraisers from Mar-a-Lago following President Trump’s remarks about the violence in Charlottesville, Va.

Anka, 76, a pop star since he was a teenager, was booked to perform Dec. 2 at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., at the LIFE (Leaders in Furthering Education) Lady in Red Gala, and had received a deposit of $75,000.

But when Trump was criticized for blaming “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville, LIFE — run by Lois Pope, the widow of National Enquirer founder Generoso Pope — moved the event to the nearby Breakers with a new date, Jan. 5.

Anka, who has an 11-year-old son and nine grandchildren, is going on a European vacation in January. When LIFE organizers asked if the deposit could go toward a performance next year, his agent allegedly said, “This is not negotiable. You will not get a penny back.”

That’s the nature of a deposit. If you change things, you forfeit the deposit. Welcome to the real world.

How Portland Is Driving Away New Residents of Color

28th August 2017

Read it.

No doubt seeking to sustain its reputation as the Whitest City in America, despite being on the Left Coast.

At a lecture in Portland last October, Isabel Wilkerson—the Pulitzer Prize-winning author who wrote about the great migration of Black Americans from the south to the north—said that when people leave a place, it’s often a referendum on the very place they leave.

No doubt why people are leaving California and New York for Texas.

So then what does it mean when I, and other people of color (POC), walk away from Portland because we can no longer stomach its racism? What does it say about Portland and specifically, the failure of its liberalism?

Principally, it means you’re a bunch of whiners who see racism under every bush. Look at this picture and try to find the Person of Color (POC):

I’ve been wrestling with these issues ever since I moved to Columbus, Ohio, in July. But before I left, I spent my last month in Portland traveling the city, asking POC how their experiences mirrored or differed from my own. What struck me was the very frank and seldom heard opinions by POC born and raised in Portland who are tired—understandably so—by new transplants like myself criticizing their city.

Maybe they know something you don’t — life isn’t about searching for new and exciting ways to be a victim.

I quickly grew accustomed to being asked by white people about my ethnic heritage—whether at the grocery store, sports bar, or on TriMet—and learned to say that I’m Indian American in the first few minutes of practically every conversation, just to set them at ease. It never really worked. They specifically wanted to know about the “Mohamed” in my last name.

Maybe it’s all the people around the world named ‘Mohamed’ who are blowing up random strangers. Just maybe. If being white is enough to make you a white nationalist, then maybe being ‘Mohamed’ is enough to make you an Islamic terrorist. Just maybe.

The thing is, I tried liking Portland. I even co-founded a podcast, Racist Sandwich—covering food, race, gender, and class—hoping it would make me feel at ease in Oregon. It never worked. Call me privileged, call me spoiled. Accuse me of taking up too much space in this city. These are all fair criticisms. In fact, I left last month with a heavy heart and many apologies to dole out, especially to the POC who were born and raised in Oregon, whose voices and experiences I fear I might have misrepresented or worse, muzzled.

In other words, the Victim Card didn’t work for you. Boo-hoo.

Steve Sailer says it best:

Reading all these I Cried Among the Farmland essays of Immigriping, I have to agree with one commenter: They’re not sending their best.

Transgender Victimhood Narrative: Police Shoot Knife-Wielding ‘Person’

25th August 2017

Read it.

“Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight” is pretty good advice, but evidently nobody told this to Kenneth “Kiwi” Herring. On Tuesday in St. Louis, Herring attacked a 30-year-old neighbor with a knife, inflicting “severe lacerations” on the man’s face, arms and torso. When police arrived and attempted to arrest Herring, they say he/“she” refused to put down the knife and attacked one of the officers, slicing him in the arm. The officers then fatally shot Herring, who thus became “the 18th Trans Person Murdered in 2017,” according to the lesbian blog Autostraddle.

Of course, if you attack a police officer with a knife, it’s not murder when the cop shoots you, but this is how it how social-justice crusades operate — when the facts don’t fit the narrative, the facts don’t matter.

Feminist Professor Claims Fatness Is Liberatory, Is Shocked by Women Who Laughed at Her

Breanne Fahs, a self-described “fat woman” who teaches Women and Gender Studies at ASU was dismayed by the study in which “no participants described gaining 100 pounds as a positive thing to imagine.”

Maybe they know something that she doesn’t.

The Hierarchy of Victimhood

24th August 2017

Lion of the Blogosphere lays it out.

A former Christian who is now an atheist and speaks out against Christianity would surely be considered one of the good guys.

A former Muslim who is now an atheist and speaks out against Islam is considered an “anti-Muslim extremist” spreading “hate.”

Well, I’m glad we’ve cleared that up.

Protesters Hurt After Man Allegedly Tries to Drive Through Crowd

After attending a vigil, some people took to the streets and blocked an intersection, St. Louis police officers said. A man tried to drive through the intersection and honked many times to try and get protesters to move, the department said in a statement. Some of the protesters refused to get out of the intersection, instead choosing to jump on the car and beat it, the department went on.

“The protesters surrounded the vehicle and began striking it with their hands and a flag pole. Several protesters also kicked and jumped on top of the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle … proceeded to drive away when three protesters … fell from the vehicle,” a department spokesperson said in a statement.

If he were Muslim, they’d have arrested the protesters for ‘Islamophobia’.
