Thought Police Demand Stores Stop Selling Sombreros and Ponchos

May 21, 2017


When utopia has been achieved, white people will no longer be racist by wearing sombreros and ponchos during lighthearted celebrations (assuming there will be any white people in utopia). In the meantime, at the University of New Hampshire:

[A] student group known as “All Eyes on UNH” has released a set of demands, which includes calls for the “administration and town elected officials” to urge “local stores in Durham to stop carrying items like ponchos and sombreros for May 5 celebrations, and instead seek out alternative sources of revenue.”

The stores must stop selling these products because “cultural appropriation contributes to the growing acceptance of racism and xenophobia.”

Meanwhile, the list of demands also calls for the “creation of a campus-wide committee to prevent similar offenses in future years,” with another demand asking Greek-life leaders to “find other ways to celebrate the end of the academic year.”

I can just picture the committee:



Or maybe even this:



Either way, Meetings of the Stamp Out Political Incorrectness Committee will surely be more fun than any Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

 

WTF? No Whites Allowed in Cafe at American University:

May 21, 2017


If America were racist in favor of whites as we are constantly told, we would see whites-only cafes. Yet there are none. Perversely, America is actually racist against the majority population. That’s why whites are banned from the Bridge Cafe at American University.
The ban is only one of several demands granted to black supremacists in the aftermath of an absurd brouhaha over some harmless bananas. Educrats have eagerly agreed to the following:
    For the remaining of the semester, the Bridge will become a sanctuary for people of color. [That is, hated whites are forbidden.]

    All POC students get extensions, and should not be penalized for already scheduled finals after the incident.

    A separate investigation team based out of the university (composed of a group of non-biased expert contractors) [will be established to] investigate cases of racism and discrimination brought against the institution of American University.



A glaringly obvious case of racism and discrimination is the administration acceding to these demands. More will follow:
    The approved demands were cited by more than 100 faculty and staff who signed a “solidarity statement” published in The Eagle Thursday. …

    The signatories … said the administration’s embrace of the three demands is “only a small step” toward prioritizing “Black students and other students of color.”
The term for this is institutional racism.
Things have certainly changed a lot since the old Jim Crow days.

 

The Real Story: The Ever-Increasing Debt

The real story remains the same, regardless of the current headlines:



Whichever party dominates in Washington, nobody is about to freeze government spending, or even slow down its explosive growth. At least, not until there is no longer any choice.

 

'Orange Stick' conspiracy revealed by alert social justice warrior:

New Orleans Continues to Erase Southern History

May 20, 2017


The purging of Southern history from New Orleans continues. Recently, authorities working under cover of darkness brought down the Liberty Monument. Now, down comes Jefferson Davis himself — an undeniably important historical figure who is currently out of political fashion and therefore must be erased:

Workers wearing face masks, bulletproof vests and helmets Thursday morning removed the statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis in New Orleans, the second of four Confederate monuments slated for removal in a contentious, months-long process that has sparked protests on both sides.

Next to be frog-marched down the New Orleans memory hole are General P.G.T. Beauregard and the great Robert E. Lee.

The Lee statue is the most prominent of the four. Unveiled in 1884, the likeness of Lee stands atop a 60-foot-tall column in the center of a traffic circle on historic St. Charles Avenue. Monument supporters say each of the statues weighs tons and they feared moving the aging icons could result in significant damage.

How nice for Mayor Mitch Landrieu that he is able to stay in power by pandering to blacks with gestures like this. But there is a price to be paid, and not primarily by “racists” or siders with the CSA in a war that ended 152 years ago. The victims are Southern heritage and beyond that, history itself. You would think liberals promoting this purge might be worried that those who forget history end up repeating it.
 

Abolishing Gender in Oregon

May 20, 2017


A key item on the liberal agenda is the abolition of gender. This will be accomplished primarily through relentless propaganda promoting transsexual grotesquerie, but also through direct government action. Oregon is taking a leading role:

Oregon is on track to become the first state to allow residents to skip a gender identity on their driver’s licenses and identification cards. …

Last year, a Portland judge allowed Jaime Shupe to legally identify as neither male nor female.

Shupe asked for an updated license, prompting the proposed changes.

Next will come a freakazoid who wants his driver’s license to reflect his currently preferred gender from New York’s official list of 31 (e.g., genderqueer, pangender, trans person, two-spirit, third sex, non-binary gender, gender gifted, person of transgender experience).
 

White Cop Sues for Being Discriminated Against for Being Black

May 14, 2017


Why should blacks get all the black privilege? Whites can have some too; it just takes trace black blood. Ask Cleon Brown of Michigan:

A veteran police sergeant with the Hastings Police Department is suing the police chief and the city, saying he was the subject of racial discrimination.

A complaint filed in federal court alleges state and federal civil rights violations, detailing events following a genetic test Sgt. Cleon Brown took through Ancestry.com revealing he is 18 percent black.

Brown claims after he revealed the test results, Hastings Police Chief Jeff Pratt called him “Kunta”, a character in the novel “Roots: The Saga of an American Family by American author Alex Haley.” The lawsuit also alleges some police department employees started whispering “Black Lives Matter” while pumping their fists as they walked past Brown.

If you poke fun at white people, they are expected to man up and deal with it, but not a person of 18% sacred blackness, certified by Ancestry.com.

According to his attorney Karie Boylan, there was more to this than normal razzing. Defendants stand accused of unfriending him on Facebook.

Brown is seeking compensation and damages, claiming that being teased was so stressful that it led to health complications. The jackpot will need to be extravagant enough to last the rest of his life, because Boylan says he may not be medically capable of continuing to work for a living.

His skin may not be dark enough for him to be black, but it sure is thin enough. Or maybe Brown is just greedy and shameless. There is a lot of that going around when it comes to lawsuits.
 

Trump Orders Preparation for Electric Grid Cyber Attacks

May 14, 2017


President Trump ordered the federal government to prepare for a devastating cyber attack against America's electric grid amid growing fears foreign states are set to carry out attacks aimed at plunging the nation into darkness.

A presidential order signed Thursday directed key federal agencies to assess preparations for a prolonged power outage resulting from cyber attacks designed to disrupt the power grid.

An assessment of the danger must be carried out by the Energy Department, Homeland Security, DNI and state and local governments to examine the readiness of the United State to manage a shutdown of the power grid. The assessment will also identify gaps and shortcomings in efforts that would be used restore power.



New cyber security measures outlined in the executive order come as the commander of Cyber Command warned two days earlier that America's critical infrastructure is vulnerable to disruption by foreign cyber attacks.

Cyber command chief Adm. Mike Rogers said several nations, including Iran, have been tied to disruptions and remote intrusions into U.S. critical infrastructures, such as the electric grid, financial networks, and others.

Rogers said destructive cyber attacks on critical infrastructure are one of his two worst case scenarios. The second involves the threat of cyber intrusions aimed at manipulating data within networks.

Iran tried to disrupt the function of a dam in upstate New York in 2013, and Russia has used industrial control malware called BlackEnergy to attack Ukraine's electric grid, Rogers said.

"Infiltrations in U.S. critical infrastructure—when viewed in the light of incidents like these—can look like preparations for future attacks that could be intended to harm Americans, or at least to deter the United States and other countries from protecting and defending our vital interests," Rogers said.

The report on electric grid cyber attacks must be provided to the White House by Aug. 9.

The new order is the result of a Trump administration policy review aimed at improving cyber security for both the government and private sector.

 

Meet college president who won't tolerate 'snowflake rebellions'

May 14, 2017


Across the country, loud and sometime violent campus protesters are often met by administrators who ultimately give in to demands related to perceived slights on issues ranging from race to gender and sexuality to alleged hate speech. But one college president is fighting back, and he says the pursuit of truth – not unanimous political ideology – ought to be the goal of higher education.

Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Everett Piper burst on to the scene in late 2015 when he wrote an open letter to his students and famously explained their campus was not a day care but a university. He is also the author of the forthcoming book “Not A Day Care: A Coddled Nation is a Crippled Nation.”

Piper is also speaking up after the latest round of campus unrest, the cancellation of Ann Coulter’s scheduled appearance at the University of California-Berkeley. In his column for the Christian Post, Piper unloads on what he sees as an assault on free speech and an abdication of the role of higher education.



“The liberal arts institution was founded some 1,000 years ago, let’s say at Oxford, for what? To educate a free man and a free woman, to educate culture and what it means to enjoy liberty, and liberation, thus the word liberal,” said Piper, in a follow-up interview to his column.

He told WND and Radio America the original purpose of a liberal arts education is now almost unrecognizable at most schools.

“The classical liberal is someone who stands for freedom, for liberty and for liberation. What we see today within the American academy is the shutting down of ideas. We see ideological fascism rather than academic freedom,” Piper said.

“The conservative voice is actually more classically liberal because we’re arguing for an open, robust exchange of ideas. Why? Because we can trust truth to judge the debate rather than politics or power.”

Piper said the problem has been brewing for many decades as ideology has become more important than truth.
 

Sacramento Provides Free Shared Eco-Vehicles for Public Housing Denizens

May 13, 2017


Now that it is becoming a “right” to have health insurance even if it must be coercively financed by others, other goods and services are sure to follow, starting with housing, food, and transportation:

On Friday, Sacramento launched a pilot program that put eight shared electric Kia Souls at public housing sites. Up to 300 residents can apply for on-demand access to the vehicles, with no charge for maintenance, insurance or juicing up the battery.

As the saying goes, no one washes a rental car. Imagine the treatment a free shared car at a public housing hellhole will get. Needless to say, the electro-libmobiles will soon require replacement. No worries; someone else pays for them.

The program is funded through a $1.3 million grant from the California Air Resources Board using cap-and-trade funds that businesses pay to offset their carbon emissions.

Wait a minute; those costs are passed along to consumers. That someone else who pays for this kind of crap is us.

The laughably foolish program is unlikely to last longer than Pronto, Seattle’s moronic bike share debacle. But in the meantime, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg barks that the free cars are “the definition of environmental justice.”
