American Family Association Sees Quarter-Million-Person Response to Call to Boycott Target Stores

April 24, 2016


Director of Government Affairs for the American Family Association (AFA), Sandy Rios, joined Breitbart News Saturday host Matt Boyle to discuss the problem with Target’s recent decision regarding its store’s public restrooms.

Rios said, “The Target department store chain has jumped into the transgender bathroom debate by declaring that men who claim to be women may use whatever bathroom or changing room they choose.”

According to Rios:

    The problem with Target’s policy is that they are now opening their bathrooms, really welcoming and inviting people of all sexual persuasions to go into bathrooms, and I have in my hand probably a dozen articles of cases where men who were dressed as women abused or raped or molested women or children in bathrooms.

She went on to say that within 24 hours, the American Family Association heard “from close to 250,000 people already” in support of an effort to boycott Target:

    The American Family Association is calling for a boycott of Target after the retail giant said it would allow men to use the women’s restrooms and dressing rooms in their stores.

    On its website this week, Target announced, “[W]e welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. … Everyone deserves to feel like they belong.”

    This means a man can simply say he “feels like a woman today” and enter the women’s restroom … even if young girls or women are already in there.

Rios continued by discussing AFA’s proposed solution of adding a “gender neutral bathroom.” However, she does not believe that would be enough to satisfy the Left.
 

College Kids Say the Darnedest Things: On Identity

April 24, 2016


In past generations, youth were rebellious. But these days it is hard to find anything college students will not believe or rather pretend to believe if you wrap it in political correctness. Take it from this 6′ 5″ 7-year-old Chinese woman: 



Once reality itself has been judged as hateful/bigoted/exclusive/incorrect, any level of willful delusion is possible. You really can get the weak-minded to agree that 2 + 2 = 5, as the cultural Marxist assault on sanity currently taking place in bathrooms confirms.

If you can make them to agree to anything, you can make them do anything. Political correctness is taking tyranny to levels that make concentration camps obsolete.

 

Mother Left ‘In Tears’ After Being Investigated for Letting Her Kids Play in Backyard

April 24, 2016


One Canadian mother was left in tears after being investigated by Child and Family Services for allowing her children to play in her own backyard:

Jacqui Kendrick, a stay-at-home mom from Winnipeg, said a CFS worker showed up at her house unexpectedly earlier this month, telling her they were there to perform a “well-being check” after receiving a complaint about her children being left unsupervised in the fully-fenced-in backyard.

“We had to go through a whole interview asking so many questions — asking me about if we’ve ever dealt with CFS before, what my childhood was like, how I punish my children, whether we drink or do drugs,” Kendrick told CTV News. “She had to look to see where my kids slept. She had to see if we had enough food in the house.”

Kendrick has three children, ages two, five and 10. She said her kids enjoy playing outside after school, adding that she’s always either outside with them or watching them from her living room windows. The mother of three insisted she feels “completely comfortable” letting her children play outside.



In addition, Kendrick said she has taught her two older children about “stranger danger” and “they know what to do” if they feel unsafe.

“We’ve taught both the [older] kids so far that you look after each other,” she said. “That’s kind of the point. The older ones should be looking after the younger ones.”

Nevertheless, Kendrick said the CFS worker continued pressing her for answers. So much so, that Kendrick nearly broke down in tears.

“The whole time I’m sitting there, pretty much in tears, because I couldn’t understand what was going on,” she said.

There has been no further contact made by CFS since the check-in earlier this month, so Kendrick assumes everything is fine. But she still doesn’t understand why whoever called the authorities didn’t simply stop by her house.

“If you really had a concern, you could have knocked on my door,” Kendrick said, later adding that, if there is ever another complaint in the future, “there’s always going to be a file there.”
 

British Schools Ask 4-Year-Olds to Pick Their Gender

April 23, 2016


If your political agenda calls for convincing people that reality is not real, it is best to start when they are very young — as young as 4 years old:

Angry parents have blasted a council that wants kids as young as four to choose the gender “they most identify with” before starting school.

It wrote to parents urging them to support their child’s choice of “gender identity” in a letter confirming primary school places this week.

And it asked them to leave the gender section of a form blank if their child had “another gender identity” altogether. The letter was sent to thousands of parents preparing to send kids to new schools later this year.

Brighton and Hove City Council wrote: “We recognise that not all children and young people identify with the gender they were assigned at birth or may identify as a gender other than male or female, however the current systems (set nationally) only record[s] gender as male or female.

“Please support your child to choose the gender they most identify with.

“Or if they have another gender identity please leave this blank and discuss with your child’s school.”

It would be more fun for the kids — and more comprehensible to them — if they were asked to choose what animal they want to be.

This assault on reality is so bizarre that even grown adults are too perplexed by its weirdness to put up sufficient resistance. Most people have no clue why the Powers That Be want us to pretend that little boys can be little girls and vice versa. The weaker-minded are even cowed into silence by shouts that it is offensive and hurtful to object.
 

Fetus Cookies at the University of North Georgia Help Explain Why Abortion Should Be Legal

April 23, 2016


Several social media posts detail an apparent pro-abortion rally at the University of North Georgia held last week at which cookies in the shape of babies were reportedly eaten and had their heads broken off:

Pictures of the baby-shaped cookies posted online had signs underneath stating: “Abortion should remain legal because … my vagina is too pretty to let a fetus crawl out” and “Abortion should remain legal because … A women controls her own body.”

Matt Walsh reports that the pro-abortionist were “breaking the heads off and laughing.” Symbolically dismembering the cookies represents solidarity with the dismemberment of actual babies as they are killed in abortions.

Walsh comments:

    As much as you might want to give “pro-choicers” the benefit of the doubt, the fact remains that they are advocating for the murder of human children. That is an insidious, terrible, deeply evil thing. And they are carrying it around with them in their hearts and in their souls.

    I think there are only a few things a person can do when they find themselves saddled with the guilt and shame that comes with excusing and affirming unspeakable atrocities. They can change their position, repent of their sin, and come back into the light, or they can cling to their position and try desperately to hide from the reality of their own belief system, or — and this is what happens to most “pro-choicers” who don’t take the first option — they can confront the evil in their heart and take delight in it. They can stop trying to morally rationalize that which cannot be morally rationalized and simply say, “To hell with your morals, to hell with these babies, to hell with you, to hell with human decency, this is terrible and violent and I don’t care. I like it.”

    Pro-aborts are, it seems, more and more choosing that third path. And in so doing they become truly monstrous. To make a joke or game out of decapitating kids isn’t simply “inappropriate” — it’s subhuman.

If progressivism prevails, our society will continue to degenerate into something that no longer reproduces and no longer deserves to.
 

Overpaid National Park Service Guide at Independence Hall Puts Down Constitution

April 23, 2016


Imagine the Louvre supervised by chimpanzees, or better still, the Vatican left in the care of gibbering demons from the bowels of hell. That would be the equivalent of what we now have running the vestigial remnants of the republic the Founding Fathers bequeathed to us:

A federal employee of the National Park Service who offers guided tours of Independence Hall in Philadelphia — the birthplace of the Constitution — stunned a group of tourists this week by telling them the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence were the product of “class elites who were just out to protect their privileged status.”

Mary A. Hogan, a federal employee making in excess of $95,000 per year in salary and benefits, provided a tour Monday afternoon at Independence Hall laced with factual inaccuracies and disparaging comments about the Founders and the Constitution.

Several attendees of her tour group on Monday told PJ Media that Hogan, who goes by the name Missy, had explained to them that “the Founders knew that when they left this room, what they had written wouldn’t matter very much.” Hogan told the group that the “most important part of the Constitution written at Independence Hall was the ability to change it.”

Among other factual inaccuracies,

“It is astounding how many times the first draft of that Constitution protected slavery,” Hogan told her tour group Tuesday afternoon.

The original Constitution only obliquely referred to slavery, in the “three-fifths” provision that hurt slave-holding states. But you can’t expect Missy to know much about the Constitution, given that she is paid a mere $95K+ to help preserve the heritage surrounding it.
 

China Unveils "Anti-Riot" Security Robot to Patrol Public Places

April 23, 2016


It looks more like a vacuum cleaner than Robocop, but this new “anti-riot” security robot is set to be deployed in public places to help authorities keep an eye on potentially unruly Chinese citizens.

Weighing in at 78kg and standing at 1.49 meters tall, “Anbot” is being billed as “China’s first robot security guard.” The system made its debut at the Chongqing Hi-Tech Fair earlier today.

“The security robot is capable of autonomous patrol, intelligent monitoring, emergency calls, auto recharging and has optional modules for environmental monitoring, biochemical detection and clearing explosives,” reports Xinhua.

With the aid of its “intelligent video surveillance,” the robot looks more like a roving spy for the state than a cyborg crime-fighter.



It also has the ability to detect when people are calling for “help,” which presumably means that raised voices of any kind will attract the attention of the robot while it is on patrol.

The robot, which can “react during emergencies,” will be “used in many public places such as airports, stations and subways to help with police officers’ anti-riot missions,” according to Wei Quansheng, an officer from Beijing’s Municipal Public Security Bureau.

Although the country’s Communist government keeps its citizens in line with a police state to rival any other, occasional outbreaks of social disorder keep the Chinese elite on edge.
 

Authorities Buying More Riot Control Gear Over Fear of Civil Unrest

April 22, 2016


Makers of riot control products are seeing increased demand from law enforcement bodies across America who fear Ferguson-style civil unrest hitting other areas of the country, according to a new report.

The report, published by Sandler Research, says that demand for surveillance drones is driving growth, with new systems that deploy water canons to “handle large crowds and demonstration(s)” also proving popular.

Riot control systems are expected to “generate revenues of over USD 3.5 billion by the end of 2020,” with North America being one of the primary growth areas for upgraded weapons due to “militarization of the police department and other law enforcement agencies” in the aftermath of the 2014 riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

Purchases of long-range acoustic devices, whips, batons and armored vehicles that will be used to “disperse, control, and arrest people involved in riots and protests” are also on the increase.

“Demand for such equipment is expected to rise during the next few years,” states the report, with authorities in Iran, Egypt, Russia, China, and Thailand also spending increased amounts on riot control equipment in advance of potential social disorder.



Top insurer Lloyds released a report that warned of a “pandemic” of global civil unrest that could go viral, threatening international stability.

The ultra-wealthy are highly concerned about civil unrest and have made moves to prepare for social disorder.

Elitists are buying luxury bomb-proof survival bunkers, with one of the companies behind the underground units, Vivos, revealing that they are for the “protection of high net worth individuals” against the threat posed by the “general public”.
 

Hate Hoax: Syrian Refugee in Bingen am Rhein Spray-Paints Swastikas, Sets Fire to Shelter

April 16, 2016


Maybe there is hope of assimilating some of the millions of welfare colonists pouring out of the Muslim world after all. They have already adopted the Western practice of staging hate hoaxes:

A Syrian refugee has admitted to setting fire to a German shelter where he was staying, spray-painting swastikas on the walls to make it look like a political crime. The asylum seeker said the arson attack was in response to poor conditions at the shelter.

Presumably free room and board = poor conditions. Poor guy probably had to make do without butler service. I thought these people were supposed to be desperate.

“During police questioning, the man admitted that he had set [a] fire in the cellar of the multi-use building,” police spokesman Achim Hansen told NBC News, adding that the refugee had also stated that he “had a lack of hope for the future.”

So does Europe, thanks to massive Third World colonization.

The 26-year-old refugee sprayed three swastikas on the exterior in the building, located in the town of Bingen, in an effort to make it seem like the fire was started by far-right protesters.

The idea is to help the media drive home the notion that anyone who opposes being displaced from his own country is a politically irresponsible extremist nutcase.

A total of 26 people were inside the building when the fire was started on Thursday. Two firefighters and four residents suffered minor injuries as a result of the blaze.

The Syrian had been living in the shelter for 6 months and apparently got bored.



 

Racially Perplexed Rachel Dolezal to Write Book About Her Racial Identity

April 16, 2016


It has almost been a year since former Spokane, Washington, NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal was exposed as a white woman who claimed to be black.

But Dolezal, who sparked outrage from critics who said she committed cultural appropriation and fueled conversation about self-identification and the concept of being transracial, said she doesn’t have any regrets.

“I don’t have any regrets about how I identify. I’m still me and nothing about that has changed,” she said during an appearance on the “Today” show on Tuesday.

Dolezal was born to white parents in Lincoln County, Montana, in 1977. She came to media attention last June when her estranged parents publicly said that she is a white woman who was passing as black.

Dolezal later resigned from her position with the NAACP and was dismissed as chair of Spokane’s police ombudsman commission. She also resigned from her position as education director at the Human Rights Education Institute in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, citing discrimination.

Having learned nothing from her humiliating experiences, she wants to move forward.

Dolezal said she has some upcoming speaking engagements and that she recently completed a TED talk.

She also said that she is “looking forward to getting back into racial and social justice work” with plans to write a book about her racial identity and her personal experiences.

By way of a preview of the ludicrous nonsense that will fill the pages of her book, Dolezal gibbers,

“So this larger issue of if you don’t fit into one box and if you don’t stay there (for) your whole life from birth… what does that look like? Race is such a contentious issue because of the painful history of racism. Race didn’t create racism, but racism created race.”

Racism created race. Anyone who finds that feasible probably holds an advanced degree in something useless.
