MIT Asking the Tough Questions: 'Is Islamophobia Accelerating Global Warming?'
"The dominant form of racism today."

This is today's Liberal demon possessed mindset, really. NO! really, this is a true story

On Monday evening, MIT's Ecology and Justice Forum In Global Studies and Languages hosted a talk to examine if there is a link between Islamophobia and global warming, because why wouldn't a really expensive technological school do something so sciency?

Guest speaker Ghassan Hage was invited from the University of Melbourne to speak. He is described as a "Future Generation Professor" at Melbourne's School of Philosophy, Anthropology and Social Inquiry. Hage is also known throughout the world for his studies on multiculturalism, colonialism and nationalism, but especially his work, White Nation: Fantasies of white supremacy in a multicultural society. He is currently working on a book that attempts to link Islamophobia with global warming and that is the reason he was invited to MIT to share his philosophies.

According to an online flyer for the event, here was the topics covered:

This talk examines the relation between Islamophobia as the dominant form of racism today and the ecological crisis. It looks at the three common ways in which the two phenomena are seen to be linked: as an entanglement of two crises, metaphorically related with one being a source of imagery for the other and both originating in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation. The talk proposes a fourth way of linking the two: an argument that they are both emanating from a similar mode of being, or enmeshment, in the world, what is referred to as ‘generalised domestication.’

Nobody knows what any of that means, but no doubt is sounds very plausible to young minds stunted by our leftist-dominated educational system. And all for the low, low price of $45,000 per year!

It Took a Special Emory U Panel to Determine Free Speech... is Protected

"The knowledge that someone supports Trump and is willing to express his feelings in chalk is not a threat."

It takes a village, as the old saying goes and apparently it takes a special panel at Emory University to determine if political messages posted around campus are protected free speech. Thankfully, they determined that students are free to engage... in free speech.

Emory's official university Standing Committee for Open Expression published a LENGTHY executive summary of its opinion on matters related to chalkings and other political expression on campus. Essentially, it was determined that writing "Trump 2016" in chalk is no less acceptable than someone putting up a "Mein Trumpf" poster with Trump wearing a Hitler mustache and a KKK hood. Both are protected free speech under the opinion of the panel.

In addition, the special panel dealt a blow to sensitive snowflakes that the presence of such free expression is not grounds to claim intimidation, threat, or emotional distress:

The knowledge that someone supports Donald Trump and is willing to express his feelings in chalk is not a threat, and is not a reasonable cause for fear in this context...

Expressions of opinion on subjects of social or political interest cannot constitute “mental or emotional injury.”

The summary goes into explicit detail regarding many so-called incidents on campus, from the chalkings, to statements on illegal immigration, and pro- and anti-Israel sentiments -- all protected under the Open Expression Policy.

Legal Insurrection's reaction sums this up perfectly: "Emory needed a special panel to figure this out? What a bizarre turn of events."

Read the entire summary at The Washington Post.

State Representatives Attack Declaration of Independence on Louisiana House Floor

Democrat Louisiana state representatives launched an attack against the phrase “all men are created equal” in the Declaration of Independence Wednesday in response to the state House’s consideration of an education bill.



State Rep. Barbara Norton (D) led the charge against HB 1035, a measure that would require local school boards of education to have students in grades four to six recite a specified section of the Declaration of Independence after the current daily period of silent prayer or meditation and the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. The bill, introduced by state Rep. Valarie Hodges (R), would require students in the specified grades to recite the following passage:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Hodges, however, tabled her bill under pressure from African-American colleagues Norton and state Rep. Pat Smith (D), who argued that school children should not be required to recite words that were written during a time in history when slavery was prevalent.

Norton said directly to Hodges:

One thing I do know is, all men are not created equal. When I think back in 1776, July the 4th, African-Americans were slaves, and for you to bring a bill to request that our children will recite the Declaration, I think is a little bit unfair to us to ask those children to recite something that’s not the truth.

“Then you don’t think all men are created equal?” Hodges asked Norton.

“For you to ask our children to repeat the Declaration stating that all mens [sic] are free – I think that’s unfair,” Norton continued, adding:

In 1776, Dr. King was not even born. African-Americans were in slavery, so since they were in slavery, the Declaration of Independence say we are ‘all created equal,’ we were not created equal because in 1776, July the 4th, I nor you nor any of us were born, nor was Dr. King born, so we were in slavery, and to have our children repeat again and again documents that were not even validated, I don’t think that that’s fair.

Hodges then proceeded to read Norton what King said about the Declaration of Independence:

This is what Martin Luther King said: “When the architects of our great Republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note which every American was to fall heir…” He said this would guarantee freedom for the rest of our posterity.

Quoting African-American orator and abolitionist Frederick Douglass on the Declaration, Hodges continued, “The principles contained in that instrument are saving principles. Stand by those principles, be true to them on all occasions and in all places…”

However, Smith countered, “Are you aware how they were used against races of people?”

“The Declaration of Independence was used against races of people?” Hodges asked.

“Yes, ma’am,” Smith said, continuing:

They had to recite this at a poll place in order to be able to vote. That was unconscionable that individuals could not vote without having to repeat parts of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. That was a requirement by the southern states. It was used against them. So, if that’s a history lesson for you, it is there…and it does concern me that you’ve only chosen a small portion…why only this portion of the Declaration of Independence?

“Well, the preamble is basically the introduction and it’s good, and the third part is the accusations against the king of England, and so that’s not really necessary, but this part…is so rich –“ replied Hodges, who was then cut off by Smith who said, “But I think there is one word in there that concerns me…that you are endowed by your Creator, and Creator is in capital letters. I don’t believe that if you say that to individuals and have them repeat that then you may be attacking religions in schools.”

According to Nola.com, Norton then proposed an amendment to Hodges’ bill that would have elementary school children recite the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which addresses citizenship rights and was passed as one of the Reconstruction Amendments after the Civil War. Similarly, Smith then proposed an amendment that students recite a text drafted during a Women’s Suffrage conference from the 19th century.

Additionally, state Rep. Ed Price (D) proposed that students recite part of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

Hodges, however, pulled her bill prior to consideration of any of the other amendments.

“It is outrageous that our ELECTED OFFICIALS are unable to discern the difference between a statement of TRUTH…. and past behavior!!!” reads a blog post at the Greater New Orleans Tea Party about the controversy over the Declaration of Independence. “Guess Norton and Smith object to teaching our kids that the earth is round because, in the past, many ignored this truth and acted upon the erroneous belief that the world was flat!!!”

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Leftist Wishes Murder on Republican Lawmakers
"Isn’t that what the Romans or Greeks or some other early practitioners of democracy used to do with solicitous and unprincipled public officials?"


In a recent column for the Detroit Free Press, editorial page editor Stephen Henderson wished publicly for the murder of Republican lawmakers in his state for passing "garbage" school bills he doesn't agree with.

This Pulitzer Prize-winner became unhinged after the Michigan State House of Representatives passed legislation recently that keeps charter schools afloat and requires major changes to the Detroit Public School system. Henderson is a strong advocate for teacher's unions and has long written about his disdain for charter schools, which don't always hire union faculty. In his latest article, he made it clear that he's not happy with pro-charter ideas because they've been "thoroughly debunked" as "a free-for-all, market-based approach to public schooling."

And so his disdain boiled over as he asked for these GOP members to be punished like it's AD 99:

    We really ought to round up the lawmakers who took money to protect and perpetuate the failing charter-school experiment in Detroit, sew them into burlap sacks with rabid animals, and toss them into the Straits of Mackinac.

    That’s harsh. Maybe.

    But isn’t that what the Romans or Greeks or some other early practitioners of democracy used to do with solicitous and unprincipled public officials?

As we continue to witness, it's the Left who are truly violent in nature and it's not only coming to light at rallies for Donald Trump, but right here in the press. Their violence is very public and Henderson wasn't afraid to tell the world his innermost thoughts better kept private.

Dan Calabrese at CainTV.com wants to make sure and keep Henderson honest before he goes through with any devious plans:

    I hope those burlap sacks are being stitched by union labor, and that they're hauling the would-be murder victims up to Mackinac in UAW-made cars. Steve can only take so much of this garbage!

Meet ‘Generation Snowflake’ – the hysterical young women who can’t cope with being offended
 Cheesy

A top British thinker has claimed young women are in the grip of a “hysteria” which has made them unable to cope with being offended.

Claire Fox, head of a thinktank called the Institute of Ideas, has penned a coruscating critique of “Generation Snowflake”, the name given to a growing group of youngsters who “believe it’s their right to be protected from anything they might find unpalatable”.

She said British and American universities are dominated by cabals of young women who are dead set on banning anything they find remotely offensive.

“It makes me sad that these teens and 20-somethings have become so fearful that they believe a dissenting opinion can pose such a serious threat,” Fox wrote in an article for Mail Online.

This hyper-sensitivity has prompted the University of East Anglia to outlaw sombreros in a Mexican restaurant and caused the National Union of Student to ban clapping as “as it might trigger trauma”, asking youngsters to use “jazz hands” instead.

Books containing troublesome material are now slapped with “trigger warnings”, whilst universities and student unions are declared “safe spaces” where young people should not have to encounter anything they disagree with.

Fox described astonishing scenes at an event set up to discuss whether the public outcry against footballer Ched Evans was “social justice or mob rule”.

The academic said her mostly female audience broke down in tears after she “dared suggest (as eminent feminists have before me) that **** wasn’t necessarily the worst thing a woman could experience”.

Fox added: “I expected robust discussion – not for them all to dissolve into outraged gasps of, ‘You can’t say that!’

“Their reaction shocked me. I take no pleasure in making teenagers cry, but it also brought home the contrast to previous generations of young people, who would have relished the chance to argue back.

“It illustrated this generation’s almost belligerent sense of entitlement. They assume their emotional suffering takes precedence. Express a view they disagree with and you must immediately recant and apologise.”

Generation Snowflake has also created a social minefield for young boys and men, who risk being labelled “sex pests” for twanging a girl’s bra at school, Fox continued.

She said women were opting to stay at home and socialise on the internet due to overblown fears about predatory men.

“There is a strand of self-absorption and fragility running through this generation; all too ready to cry ‘victim’ at the first hint of a situation they don’t like,” Fox concluded.

“We need a younger generation that’s prepared to grow a backbone, go out into the world, take risks and make difficult decisions. Otherwise the future doesn’t bode well for any of us.”

Claire Fox has penned a book about Generation Snowflake which is called I Find That Offensive and was published by Biteback in May.

The 'Snowflake' Generation Is Completely Out Of Control - Being 'Graded' Is Depressing, Homework Interferes With Activism And More Ridiculous Complaints

Researching the monthly chaos that the "Snowflake" Generation is causing on college campuses across America, we have come to the conclusion these crybullies are completely out of control and it is time for parents to step in and cut them off if they do not straighten up.

When we see a list of the most common complaints registered by students about their colleges, another two professors and one dean sacrificed on the altar of the binkie sucking, diaper wearing, "we need a safe space" children that claim to be "young adults," that seem think that recieving grades for their first semester is depressing and anyone that depresses them should be held "accountable,"  and we have to wonder who is truly to blame. 

Is it the parents that obviously didn't spank their children enough or teach them that the word is full of people with different beliefs and opinions? Is it the school officials themselves that have mollycoddled  and appeased the little brats to the point where they are incapable of dealing with any type of conflict without breaking down in tears of outrage? Or is it society itself where public schools and states have stripped parental rights away and instead has determined they know what is best for our children than we do?

STUDENTS MOST POPULAR COMPLAINTS

Campus Grotto surveyed over 1,000 college students nationwide to find out what their biggest complaints about their colleges were, listing the top 38 answers, some of which will be shown below. Readers should feel free to check out all 38 most popular answers and offer "helpful" suggestions to the poor little darlings.

Parking and the rates to park, the price for textbooks, having to get up for 7 am classes, and taking mandatory prerequisites and electives, too many other pesky students and a lack of community feel at a big college, all made the top ten complaints.

Others include, but are not limited to; Being homesick; Being forced to abide to the school's meal plan; The time constraint it has on you. College is a lot of work to handle all at once; The Dissertation process; Having a roommate; Too many distractions on a college campus;  Having to walk long distances across campus; All the required reading homework; Being broke all the time; College (in general) places too much of an emphasis on academic success and not enough on professional development AND; My college did not help me to find employment.

GRADES ARE "DEPRESSING" - SCHOOL SHOULD BE "ACCOUNTABLE" FOR WORSENING "ANXIETY"

Johns Hopkins University realized their practice  which "intended to ease students into university life," where their first semester grades really didn't count actually encouraged laziness, (known as "covered grades")so they decided to abolish the practice and to actually grade the students based on the work they do, or don't do, and make the grades count.

This novel concept has not gone over well with the "snowflake generation" students at Hopkins who started a campaign to "Re-Cover Hopkins."

Erica Taicz, a student and Re-Cover Hopkins organizer, told The Baltimore Sun:

"I've heard a lot of feedback from parents and the administration that kind of makes it feel like we are just trying to be coddled, and it's not it at all," Taicz said. "I'm paying so much, I expect to be able to be critical of that service when it doesn't support me. 

"I'm paying to have a support network, academically and mentally. I can't be expected to do well in class if I'm depressed and have anxiety. If the school is worsening my anxiety, that's their problem and they need to be held accountable for that."

Emphasis mine..... and time out. As Reason Magazine points out, tuition alone at Hopkins costs over $50,000 a year, so is she really paying or or are her parents paying? Secondly, if she cannot stand the stress of college, perhaps she sould seek help rather than blaming someone else for it.

Via Reason:

What Hopkins students are actually paying for is a rigorous education and, eventually, a degree that demonstrates their intellectual competence in some area of study. Making college easier by discounting grades will ultimately cheapen the value of that degree.

It's okay, of course, for the university to make specific accommodations for struggling students who have legitimate issues. But activist students seem to be borrowing the language of trauma to describe mundane discomforts.

John Hopkins University is not the only college dealing with students that believe grades for work completed should be counted as we are reminded of a couple of other recent reports.

ACTIVISM TRUMPS EDUCATION

At Oberlin college, students unsuccessfully demanded that below-average grades be abolished and midterms should be replaced with "conversations," because... well, life is stressful and there are protests to attend and activsim is much more important than school work..... at college where parents pay to have their children educated!

Of course, some of these students probably feel unsupported because their impractical demands were not realized. Two examples: activist students not only wanted to abolish all grades below a 'C,' they also thought faculty members should proactively offer them alternatives to taking a written, in-class midterm exam. Here is the testimony of Megan Bautista, who identifies as an Afro-Latinx student:

Protest surged again in the fall of 2014, after the killing of Tamir Rice. “A lot of us worked alongside community members in Cleveland who were protesting. But we needed to organize on campus as well—it wasn’t sustainable to keep driving forty minutes away. A lot of us started suffering academically.” In 1970, Oberlin had modified its grading standards to accommodate activism around the Vietnam War and the Kent State shootings, and Bautista had hoped for something similar. More than thirteen hundred students signed a petition calling for the college to eliminate any grade lower than a C for the semester, but to no avail. “Students felt really unsupported in their endeavors to engage with the world outside Oberlin,” she told me.

Another student by the name of Zakiya Acey stated "Because I’m dealing with having been arrested on campus, or having to deal with the things that my family are going through because of larger systems—having to deal with all of that, I can’t produce the work that they want me to do. But I understand the material, and I can give it to you in different ways. There’s professors who have openly been, like, 'Yeah, instead of, you know, writing out this midterm, come in to my office hours, and you can just speak it,' right? But that’s not institutionalized. I have to find that professor."

Oberlin is not alone in examples of college students thinking activism trumps scholastics, as we see students at Brown are upset that the university dares to expect them to keep up with their acedemics amid their protesting.

Sudent activists at Brown University are complaining of emotional stress and poor grades after months of protesting, and blame the school for insisting that they complete their coursework.

“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes, and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” an undergraduate student going by the pseudonym “David” told The Brown Daily Herald Thursday. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. Counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay.”

SACRIFICES TO THE CRYBULLIES

The Atlantic reports that two Yale University Professors have been sacrificed at the altar of the crybullies of Yale, stemming from controversy over an email reponse to students last October regarding Holloween costumes, and Down Trend reports the Dean of Matteo Ricci College at Seattle University has been put on administrative leave after the students whine the "curriculum was too white."

A must-read from the Daily Mail from Claire Fox, titled "Why today's young women are just so FEEBLE: They can't cope with ANY ideas that challenge their right-on view of the world, says a top academic," details her personal experience with "Generation Snowflake."

BOTTOM LINE

Perhaps it is time for parents to step in before it is too late, yank these spoiled brats out of college, tell them they are not wasting any more money on having them educated when the students want to do anything but study, give them six months to a year to get a job and save up enough for an apartment where they may need those "roommates" they complain about from college to afford it, boot them out and tell them to grow up!

Newt Gingrich: 'If you are a normal white American ... you don’t understand being black in America'
7/8/16

Most white Americans "don't understand being black in America" and the discrimination African Americans face, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, said Friday.

Gingrich, who is among a group of individuals presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump is vetting as a possible running mate, made his remark during a Facebook town hall with Van Jones, a former aide in the Obama administration.

The event had been scheduled to focus on opioid use, but with the nation reacting to two highly publicized shootings of black men by police this week, followed by the killing of at least five Dallas police officers in a gun attack Thursday night, the two shifted to talk about race and ways to bring the nation together.

"It took me a long time, and a number of people talking to me through the years to get a sense of this," said Gingrich, who served as speaker from 1990 until 1995 and who represented an Atlanta-area congressional district for two decades.

"If you are a normal white American, the truth is you don’t understand being black in America," he said.

White Americans "instinctively underestimate the level of discrimination and the level of additional risk," he said.

Gingrich's remarks followed a statement released by Trump on Friday in which he said the nation has become "too divided." Outside of the statement, Trump has not spoken about the shootings. He canceled a campaign rally that had been scheduled for Florida.

Gingrich, known for being blunt -- he initially spoke out against Trump following the candidate's controversial remarks about a Latino judge -- also talked about life in the South and specifically in Georgia, where he moved when he was in high school.

“It was still legally segregated, which meant the local sheriff and National Guard would impose, by force, the taking away of rights of Americans," he said. "We’ve come a fair distance, now we have a black mayor of Atlanta and have had a series of them, in fact. ... But we’ve stalled out on the cultural, economic, practical progress we needed.”

The former House speaker has a history of controversial, racially tinged remarks. He once called President Obama the “food stamp president” and questioned whether he had a "Kenyan, anti-colonial" worldview.

Gingrich has described bilingual education as teaching “the language of living in a ghetto,” and said that poor urban children come from communities that lack a “work ethic.” In 2012, seeking the GOP presidential nomination, he campaigned in the South with a states-rights message that critics called a coded appeal to prejudice.

Trump is expected to select his running mate sometime in the coming week, ahead of the Republican National Convention. He and Gingrich campaigned together earlier this week in Ohio.

Dem Congresswoman Indicted After Investigation Reveals She Allegedly Used Charity as ‘Personal Slush Fund’

U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown of Florida and her chief of staff pleaded not guilty Friday to multiple fraud charges and other federal offenses in a grand jury indictment unsealed after an investigation into what prosecutors call a phony charity turned into a personal slush fund.

Brown, a 69-year-old Democrat, and Chief of Staff Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, 50, entered pleas in Jacksonville federal court on charges of mail and wire fraud, conspiracy, obstruction and filing of false tax returns.

She has represented a Jacksonville-based congressional district since 1993 — one of the first three African-Americans elected to Congress from Florida since Reconstruction— and is seeking re-election in a newly redrawn district.


Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rep. Corrine Brown (D-FL), Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) rally with fellow members of Congress on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court February 27, 2013 in Washington, DC. Leaders from Congress joined civil rights icons to rally as the court prepared to hear oral arguments in Shelby County v. Holder, a legal challenge to Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act.

Democrat Congressman: Jews Are 'Termites'

U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) has said some things during his tenure in Congress that have made jaws drop, but his most recent comments about Israeli settlers in the West Bank are just downright repulsive.

"There has been a steady [stream], almost like termites can get into a residence and eat before you know that you've been eaten up and you fall in on yourself," he said, according to The Washington Free Beacon. "There has been settlement activity that has marched forward with impunity and at an ever-increasing rate to the point where it has become alarming.

"It has come to the point that occupation, with highways that cut through Palestinian land, with walls that go up, with the inability or the restriction, with the illegality of Palestinians being able to travel on those roads and those roads cutting off Palestinian neighborhoods from each other. And then with the building of walls and the building of check points that restrict movement of Palestinians.

"We've gotten to the point where the thought of a Palestinian homeland gets further and further removed from reality.

"You see one home after another being appropriated by Jewish people who come in to claim that land just because somebody did not spend the night there. The home their ancestors lived in for generations becomes an Israeli home and a flag goes up, [but] the Palestinians are barred from flying flags in their own neighborhoods.

"The fact is the Israeli government, which is the most right-wing government ever to exist in the state of Israel in its history, the most right-wing government, you got a guy like Trump who is now the minister of defense in Israel calling the shots on defense."

Johnson said he's not the only member of Congress who feels that way. He was speaking at an event sponsored by the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation. That group is one of the leading supporters of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement.

Six years ago, Johnson expressed real concern that the U.S. island territory of Guam could capsize. See the video below.

Pollster James Zogby, who took part in crafting the Democratic Party's 2016 platform, explained how the party wound up with a position statement that is still staunchly pro-Israel. He blames GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson, saying Democrats are afraid of being on the receiving end of his wrath if they adopt an anti-Israel policy.

The Anti-Defamation League demanded Johnson "apologize and retract this offensive, unhelpful characterization" of Jewish settlers via Twitter. Johnson has since tweeted an apology for his comments:

Poor choice of words—apologies for offense. Point is settlement activity continues slowly undermine 2-state solution.

The congressman's office has now issued a more comprehensive statement, saying his "termites" reference was directed at the Israeli policy, not at the people themselves. It called for a change in course that could lead to a "two-state solution":

"The corrosive settlement policies undermine the ability of all citizens in the region to enjoy healthy, peaceful lives in safe communities. We must work to promote policies that support a two-state solution and encourage trust between both sides."

Jewish donors had played a big role in helping Johnson oust his predecessor, former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, in the 2006 Democratic primary. McKinney and her father, who was her predecessor, were notoriously anti-Semitic.

Law Profs Want Juries to Try Accused Campus Rapists Based on Feelings, Not Evidence
They now say **** is a civil rights issue.


Nearly 100 law professors from 50 universities signed on to a new white paper that will fundamentally change how campus **** allegations are tried if adopted. These professors want to treat campus sexual assaults as violations of a person's civil rights under Title IX discrimination laws whether an actual crime was committed or not.

Hosted at FeministLawProfessors.com, the white paper supports the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) “Dear Colleague Letter” issued in 2011 which set the guidelines for schools to use a preponderance of the evidence standard of proof in Title IX proceedings. The preponderance standard is the sole measure in which discrimination cases are tried. It works like this, as noted at The Huffington Post:

    The preponderance standard essentially means an accused person can be found guilty if the adjudicator or panel believes there’s a 51 percent chance the allegations against the individual are true. In other words, a jury would rule based on whose side they believe more.

The Education Department twisted how these cases should be tried to view feelings as more important than evidence and that's in direct conflict with criminal case standards which require “proof beyond a reasonable doubt.” This has gotten the agency sued by men formerly accused of **** and sexual assault whose cases were affected by this stealth change.

But the professor's side with the Education Department and argue that not using the preponderance standard is “incompatible with the agency’s mission to secure gender equality in education:"

    By insisting on such equal treatment of sexual harassment complainants, OCR is ensuring that victims of sexual harassment will be treated no worse than victims of racial and other harassment are when they must prove their allegations.

What this really comes down to is making sure males aren’t presumed innocent so long as there’s a female with a compelling “****” story. One of the organizers of the white paper, Chicago-Kent College of Law professor Katharine Baker, makes this abundantly clear:

    “There is a mistaken tendency to assume that the Department of Education is policing **** on college campuses and should therefore use the background norms of criminal law as an appropriate model for adjudication procedures. In fact, the department is responding to the overwhelming evidence that a culture of male sexual entitlement permeates college campuses and that women suffer disproportionately from having to live, study, and try to learn in that environment.”

Take heed, male college freshmen, your right to a fair trial is slowly evaporating.

 Cheesy This is so funny a lesbian wanting to implement sharia law so she will be tossed off a building.

Liberal Commentator Sally Kohn Slammed on Twitter After Calling Shariah Law ‘Progressive’

CNN political commentator and columnist Sally Kohn received immediate backlash on Twitter Tuesday after she posted a controversial tweet about Islamic law.

The liberal journalist claimed that many peaceful, “progressive Muslims” believe in Shariah law, the legal code that guides members of the Islamic faith and is strictly enforced in fundamentalist Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia.

Many have condemned Shariah as anti-American as it allows for violent forms of punishment and unequal treatment of women in a court of law. Few would call it “progressive.”

For example, according to a leading Shariah law manual, Reliance of the Traveller, the code also demands the killing of apostates, or those who once were Muslim but left the faith.

Given this, the responses that flooded in after Kohn’s Shariah tweet were not surprising:

The article, written by Jeffrey Goldberg, slams conservative politician Newt Gingrich’s criticism of Shariah by explaining how Israel has adopted the legal code for certain proceedings:

Israel’s sharia courts, which are supervised by the Ministry of Justice, allow the more than 15 percent of Israel’s population that is Muslim to seek religious recourse for their personal dilemmas. These courts have been in operation since Israel’s founding, and yet the country does not seem to have been fatally undermined by their existence.

Speaking to the Jewish Chronicle in 2008, Dr. Aviad Hacohen, a constitutional law expert from Hebrew University and the head of the Mosiaca Centre on State and Religion, detailed what he sees as the “two main shortcomings” of Israel’s system:

The first is that it creates a twin-track system of religious and civil law that are not always compatible. Over-ruling of the religious courts by the Supreme Court is not uncommon, and in 1992, in the landmark case Bavli v Bavli, the Supreme Court ruled that civil courts take precedence over religious courts.

The second shortcoming is that the system isn’t good for everyone. It can’t deal with mixed marriages, or those who are not recognised as belonging to a religion.

Such arrangements between religious courts and the civil authorities are impossible in countries like the US and France, where there is a strict division between state and religion, but they exist in Germany and Belgium where some religious groups are allowed to rule on such matters.

Germany and Belgium were both devastated by multiple terrorist attacks in 2016 carried out by Islamic extremists.

FREE TAMPONS AND PADS ARE MAKING THEIR WAY TO U.S. COLLEGES, HIGH SCHOOLS AND MIDDLE SCHOOLS

You know, probably not a bad idea. I could see a reason for this, BUT! This is their reason.

“There’s been a lot of conversation about why pads and tampons are a necessity, not a luxury, but not a lot of action. We wanted to take it into our own hands,” says Nguyen, a senior studying education policy. “Low-income students struggle with having the necessary funding for food, let alone tampons.”

By putting menstrual products in women’s, men’s and gender-inclusive bathrooms, Nguyen’s campaign highlights an often-ignored fact: Not all people who menstruate are women.

http://www.newsweek.com/free-tampons-pads-us-schools-496083

Sorry  Tongue but it is a FACT that ONLY woman can menstruate. PERIOD. A boy or a man or a girl can't. In FACT that is what makes a girl a WOMAN.

Katie Couric Sued for $2 Million Over Deceptive Editing of Gun Control Movie
Suit alleges that filmmakers used lighting trickery to make them appear sinister.

Katie Couric and director Stephanie Soechtig are being sued for defamation after they inappropriately edited their gun control documentary to make gun-rights activists look bad.

As the Washington Examiner reports, back in May, Stephen Gutowski of the Washington Free Beacon released audio from Couric's interview with a gun-rights group called the Virginia Citizens Defense League. The VCDL appeared in Couric and Soechtig's documentary, Under the Gun, in which Couric asks the group: "If there are no background checks for gun purchasers, how do you prevent felons or terrorists from purchasing a gun?"

In the movie, the group members appear to sit in awkward silence for nine agonizing seconds afterward, apparently stumped by Couric's brilliant journalistic gotcha! But the audio Gutowski provided proves that the members of the group actually answered Couric question immediately and knowledgeably, discussing background checks, the "classes of people" who are already legally barred from owning a firearm, and various issues pertaining to pre-emptive law enforcement -- because gun rights people aren't stupid, as gun-confiscation media elites like Couric want you to believe.

"So, what we're really asking about is a question of prior restraint," one says:

"How can we prevent future crime by identifying bad guys before they do anything bad? And, the simple answer is you can't. And, particularly, under the legal system we have in the United States, there are a lot of Supreme Court opinions that say, 'No, prior restraint is something that the government does not have the authority to do.' Until there is an overt act that allows us to say, 'That's a bad guy,' then you can't punish him."

Yet the film is cut in such a way that no one in the group seems to have an answer for Couric. Media bias, anyone?

Now VCDL is suing Couric and Soechtig for "false and defamatory footage." VCDL alleges that the two "manipulated the footage in service of an agenda: They wanted to establish that there is no basis for opposing universal background checks by fooling viewers into believing that even a panel of pro-Second Amendment advocates could not provide one."

VCDL also claims that Couric and Soechtig "acted with actual malice" by telling members of the group to sit silently for 10 seconds while they allegedly calibrated recording equipment. It was this clip, the group believes, that was used in the film to make them appear unable to answer the question.

In addition to deceptively editing, the group alleges that filmmakers used lighting trickery to make them appear sinister, while portraying gun-control activists in a more positive light.

"After confirming that the VCDL members oppose background checks, the film cuts to interviews with two anti-gun advocates. In contrast to the dark and shadowy lighting that the Defendants used for the VCDL members, the Defendants filmed the anti-gun advocates in bright light against bright backgrounds and intentionally did not cast shadows on their faces," the lawsuit said.

You messed with the wrong Americans, Katie.

Liberals, You Can’t Pretend to Be ‘Pro-Science’ While You Claim That Men Can Have Babies

Sometimes I like to fantasize that I live in a sane country filled with mentally stable people. It’s a nice thing to imagine, but I can never indulge the fantasy for very long. Reality has a tendency to intrude. Just recently I was awoken from such a daydream when I read that Bradley Manning, who is serving a 35-year prison sentence for espionage, will receive taxpayer-funded “gender reassignment surgery.”

To put it plainly, Manning will be castrated so that he can more fully live out the delusion that he’s a woman named Chelsea. Liberals have celebrated the news, declaring that it’s “medically necessary” to mutilate Manning’s genitals because he’s “really a woman inside,” and no woman should be forced to keep the **** that was assigned to her at birth without her consent.

Of course, this news comes only days after Brown University announced it will be putting tampons in the men’s room because, according to the Ivy League school, “not all the people who menstruate are women.”

And that move was made public around the same time that the NCAA decided to pull its championship games out of North Carolina to punish the state for not allowing cross-dressing men to pee in the ladies’ room.

And that news came to us a couple of days after Time published an article titled, “My Brother’s Pregnancy,” which tells the inspiring story of a woman who “became a man” and then decided that “he” still wanted to have a baby. Key passage:

But what if you are born into a female body, know you are a man and still want to participate in the traditionally exclusive rite of womanhood? What kind of man are you then?

Another way of phrasing that: What if you are born a woman, know you are a man, but want to remain a woman after you become a man? What then?

(Answer: intense psychotherapy.)

And all of this happened a few days before the leftist media threw a collective hissy fit because Donald Trump’s proposed maternity leave policy doesn’t include men. This “controversy” led to one of the more bizarre Twitter interactions I’ve ever seen:

https://twitter.com/MattWalshBlog/status/776553843840716800/photo/1

Liberals used to whip out their trusty “This isn’t Mad Men” line when shaming conservatives for not demonstrating an appropriate amount of enthusiasm for the feminist agenda. Now they’re using it to mock us for suggesting that men can’t give birth.

They now treat biological facts with utter contempt and hatred, deriding anyone who so much as acknowledges them. It’s only a matter of time before anatomy textbooks are being burned in bonfires and those caught reading them are forced to publicly renounce their heretical belief in the female uterus.

And I suspect that even as liberals are barbecuing science books and dancing around the flames chanting LGBT slogans, they’ll still accuse conservatives of being the “anti-science” ones. “Stop hating science! OK, the fire’s ready. Pass me that science book.”

The funny thing is, I used to think the term “anti-science” was ridiculous. Nobody is literally anti-science, I thought. Some people might be wrong about science, or ignorant of it, or they may disagree about conclusions or methods or whatever, but nobody is actually against science in principle. Science is science, I would say to myself. You can’t be for or against it. It just is. That’s the whole point of science: to figure out what is. Even if you’re wrong about what is, you aren’t anti-science.

In a similar way, I thought, a person isn’t “anti-math” because they think 2 + 2 = 5. They’re wrong about math, but they aren’t against math. They’d be anti-math if they insisted that we shouldn’t try to ascertain the sum of 2 + 2, or if they claimed arithmetic is witchcraft and those who practice it should be scourged and beheaded.

You’re only “anti” something if you are opposed to it in general. So you’re only anti-science if you wish to censor or abolish or punish or discredit an entire field of legitimate scientific inquiry. But who is actually trying to do that nowadays, in this enlightened and modern country of ours?

Leftists often level this charge at conservatives because we believe in God and don’t believe in man-made global warming, but they’re being ridiculous, clearly. We aren’t telling anyone not to study the climate or evolution or whatever else — we’re just giving our view about what you’ll find if you do study those subjects. Even if we’re wrong (we’re not), we aren’t against science. We haven’t denied science or attempted to punish or interfere with it. Nobody is doing that, I used to think.

I was an idiot, obviously. There is indeed an actual anti-science movement in America, and it’s called liberalism. It’s not enough to say that liberals are simply wrong about the basic biological facts surrounding sex and reproduction. If that’s all there was to it, we could sit them down for the bird and the bees talk their parents apparently never gave them — explain that a man has a **** and a woman has a ****, and when a man and a woman love each other very much they can get together and make a little baby, and the baby will grow in mommy’s tummy — and hopefully that would be the end of it. But that’s not the end of it for liberals.

It’s fair to assume that liberals have already encountered these biological facts. After all, they only started with the “transgender” stuff about 15 seconds ago. We were all on the same page until they decided to rip the page out and incinerate it. They know they can’t prove scientifically, biologically, that a man can “be a woman,” so they have decided to reject biology wholesale. They’ve moved to actually abolish biological sex, claiming that nothing can really be known about a person based on their anatomy, chromosomes, reproductive capabilities or DNA. They are trying to throw out centuries of research and scientific discovery because they find it emotionally and politically unappealing. That’s anti-science.

What they are doing is no different from a person who denies that mathematics can tell you anything about numbers, or that archaeology can tell you anything about history, or that astronomy can tell you anything about stars. Or you might say it’s more equivalent to a person who says that numbers don’t exist and outer space is actually a giant mural that someone painted on an invisible ceiling. With their gender theories, they have undermined and denied an entire field of science. They have come out against science itself. They have shown us what being “anti-science” actually looks like, and Lord is it a terrifying and bewildering sight.

To make the whole thing all the more absurd, they frequently claim some mystical ”scientific consensus” confirming that biology isn’t real. Now, I admit it’s true that a fair number of doctors and teachers and scientists have chosen to appease liberal superstitions rather than affirm reality, but that doesn’t change the reality. And besides, not everyone is on board. The American College of Pediatrics released a report not long ago confirming what everyone in the world has known for millennia:

A person’s belief that he or she is something they are not is, at best, a sign of confused thinking. When an otherwise healthy biological boy believes he is a girl, or an otherwise healthy biological girl believes she is a boy, an objective psychological problem exists that lies in the mind not the body, and it should be treated as such.

It’s rather tragic that it’s reached a point where a group of PhDs have to actually come out and say this, and even more tragic that half of the country scoffs at it as if they’d just announced that the Earth’s core is made of gum drops. But here we are. And it should be noted that the most crucial “finding” in their report is not merely biological, but logical. It’s the definition of logic, in fact: A thing cannot be what it is not.

If you make such a radical declaration in front of a liberal these days, they’ll ask you to prove it. And you can prove it. You could tell them to close their eyes and imagine that gasoline is soda pop, and then go to a gas station and spray the nozzle into their mouths to see if their emotions are actually capable of overriding physical realities. Or you could tell them to believe really hard that they can fly, like R. Kelly says, and then jump off the Grand Canyon to test the song’s accuracy. But if you do that, you’ll end up with a lot of liberals choking on gasoline or splattered all over the ground. That doesn’t seem like the most Christian way to win an argument.

And anyway, you really can’t win an argument when you’re standing firmly in the real world and the other side is skipping through the meadows in Candy Land. In order for two sides to come to an understanding, both must basically acknowledge that reality exists and is knowable. Liberals will make no such concessions, and so our society slips ever more rapidly into madness. I’m not sure exactly how to stop it, but at the very least, in the mean time, we should stop letting the crazy ones pretend to be the “pro-science.”

Crucifix, Trump chalkings reported as 'hate incidents' at UW-L

More than 1-in-10 "hate incidents" reported to the UW-La Crosse "Hate Response Team" were deemed fake or frivolous.
Among the reports that were considered legitimate were the display of a Crucifix, the mere existence of a Christian student group, and an off-campus blog post about life as a white student.

A report released by the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse’s “Hate Response Team” shows that more than 10 percent of reported hate incidents were determined to be fake or frivolous.

In fact, the report notes that 28 of 192 reports were found to be either completely fake or “not a bias/hate incident,” accounting for 14 percent of all incidents reported.

Meanwhile, of the reports that were legitimate, students complained about everything from images of the crucifix to a blog post about life on campus as a white student.

According to The La Crosse Tribune, one student reported feeling unsafe when discovering a Campus Crusade for Christ poster on campus, claiming that the cross represents “oppression and hate of the LGBT+ community.”

Two other students turned in one of their peers for publishing a blog post about life as a white student, calling his post offensive to students of color, and even saying that the proximity of the author’s off-campus residence made them feel unsafe living on campus.

After the infamous “chalkening” had spread to UW La Crosse’s campus, several students reported the incident to the Hate Response Team, whose report shows a drastic increase in activity over the few days it occurred—18 reports in just three days.

The school had initially responded to the chalkening with a Facebook post that called it “contradictory to our mission as a university,” but later deleted the post after facing national criticism.

In most cases, students who reported instances of bias refused contact with the Hate Response Team, with only 34 of 192 reporters requesting contact from a Hate Response Team advocate.

Of the 192 reports, 56 of them were simply classified as a “statement,” which the Hate Response Team describes as “not only words that are spoken, but also instances where hateful messages are conveyed using sign language, gestures, or similar forms of direct interpersonal communication.”

But the Hate Response Team continues to defend itself as being consistent with the First Amendment rights of students, arguing in its report that “while the First Amendment protects free expression of ideas that are sometimes offensive, that does not mean the university is powerless to respond.”

Indeed, the Hate Response Team claims that its mission is to “assist the victim/target in receiving the appropriate services,” but only 34 students requested such services in the past academic year alone.

The Hate Response Team has been highly criticized by several national institutions, including the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), which awarded the school its February “Speech Code of the Month” award.

“While many of these policies stop short of actually allowing for punishment of protected speech, they nonetheless have a serious and chilling effect on student and faculty expression,” FIRE wrote of the Hate Response Team. “A university cannot be a place of free and open debate when it actively encourages students to report on each other’s perceived wrong-speak in classrooms and living spaces. That is Big Brother at his finest.”

WaPo’s Chris Cillizza Flabbergasted Trump Used Female Pronouns to Refer to Hillary

 Can you believe the audacity of a presidential candidate referring to a woman as "she"Huh

10.10.2016

In these gender-confused times, the pronouns one uses to describe someone of the other sex -- or rather, gender identification -- have become politically weaponized. Thus, after Sunday evening’s contentious debate between candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza was surprised and suspicious that Trump used such loaded language as “she” and “her” to refer to his female opponent.

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe Monday, Cillizza argued that using feminine pronouns like that, Trump is not going to win over any pronoun-sensitive women or independents:

    “He needs independents, he needs women. There’s just not much there last night that I think would convince you if you were not for him previously, particularly if you’re a woman. He kept referring to Hillary Clinton as ‘she,’ ‘her,’ which I think was a concerted strategy, I’m not sure why.”

Whaaat? His analysis received no protest or request for clarification from hosts Joe Scarborough or Mika Brzezinski.

WaPo pays this man -- excuse us, person -- to appear in print and on television to provide insightful political commentary, and this is his -- er, sorry again -- takeaway from the debates?

We call media bias on Cillizza, who had nothing to say about Clinton's equally "concerted strategy" of hurling the offensively masculine pronouns "he" and "his" at her -- geez, there we go again -- counterpart Trump.

If Cillizza can indulge in conspiracy theories, so can we. What are we to make of this fly's sexist, concerted strategy of landing on Clinton's face and not on Trump's?

We're living in the days now where people don't know what they're talking about anymore - it's not so much that we don't know what they're talking about, but it's THEY who have no idea what they're saying.

And yes, that includes pastors and ministries (not all, but you know what I'm talking about).

With Our Nation Approaching Madness, What Happens To 'Special Snowflakes' When The Prozac Wears Off And iTune Batteries Die?

- Answer: They are going to curl up in a corner, sucking their thumbs because they cannot handle the real world



By Susan Duclos - All News PipeLine

After reporting extensively on social justice warriors and the insanity occurring across the country by "special snowflakes," when  I read the headlines both at Fox News and Wall Street Journal, telling us that "College students nationwide flood mental-health centers," I was not surprised in the least to hear that anxiety, depression and other mental health issues have increased exponentially within our nation's college campuses over the last five years.

Ohio State has seen a 43% jump in the past five years in the number of students being treated at the university’s counseling center. At the University of Central Florida in Orlando, the increase has been about 12% each year over the past decade. At the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, demand for counseling-center services has increased by 36% in the last seven years.

Nationwide, 17% of college students were diagnosed with or treated for anxiety problems during the past year, and 13.9% were diagnosed with or treated for depression, according to a spring 2016 survey of 95,761 students by the American College Health Association. That is up from 11.6% for anxiety and 10.7% for depression in the spring 2011 survey. Counseling centers say they are also seeing more serious illnesses, including an uptick in the number of students coming to college with long psychiatric histories.

CAUSE AND EFFECT

Those figures are quite disturbing considering the fact that when finished with college, these mentally ill young men and women are then entering the world at large and the workforce, carrying their mindset with them, where the erosion of our constitutional rights is considered by them to be "social justice," and their "nanny-state" mentality can be seen in their need for "safe spaces" and trigger warnings, and these children that think "free tampons" for all (including men's restrooms!) in colleges, will end up joining the ever-growing welfare lists.

The effects can be seen in major headlines every day, where protests and rioting have become the norm and free speech is labeled hate speech because these iTune and prozac babies cannot handle hearing anything that doesn't fit their own ideology, and constantly see themselves as victims.

The cause is often blamed on tuition prices, the economy and other things, but colleges have always been expensive and economic troubles have always existed, so we look to what has been happening in our nation's colleges over the last decades and the correlation cannot be ignored.

In January 2016 it was reported that "Liberal Professors Outnumber Conservative Faculty 5 to 1," and in that report we see the following graph to highlight visually exactly how "academia has shifted dramatically to the left."

The reason this is important is because college is generally the first time children move away from their parents and have no parental influence in their day to day lives, so the habits they learn, the mindset and actions and reactions, are most likely the ones they bring into the real world with them.

In 2008, a prominent psychiatrist, Dr. Lyle Rossiter, published an extensive study on 'Psychological Causes of Political Madness', where he concluded that liberalism is quite literally a mental disorder. Rossiter had spent 35 years in his field, and had diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago, according to WND.

Rossiter stated "Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

Rossiter asserted that the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population using mehtods which include "creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization, satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation, augmenting primitive feelings of envy and rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government."

He concluded:

"The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind. When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious."

In January 2016, a widely dispersed research study issued a "correction" to a three year old paper which claimed "conservatives are more likely to exhibit traits associated with psychoticism, such as authoritarianism and tough-mindedness, and that the supposed “authoritarian” personality of conservatives might even have a genetic basis," finding that their original report had a glaring error, and the results were  "exactly reversed."

Via Washington Free Beacon in June 2016 "In other words, the study actually found that liberals were more associated with being 'more uncooperative, hostile, troublesome, socially withdrawn' and 'manipulative'."

PLEASE NOTE - These findings talk of liberalism, not being a "Democrat," which is an important distinction because while conservatives may disagree with Democrats on most political and social issues, those are ideological differences.... in other words, to put it bluntly, we are not calling Democrats crazy or saying they all have a mental disorder, but we are pointing out that studies and psychiatrists find that "liberals" have a mental disorder and it is predominantly "liberals" teaching in our nation's colleges.

Which is the "cause" of the following headlines and teasers in this week's "Special Snowflake" edition.

Colleges Now Offering ‘Safe Spaces’ for Students to Take Naps - No, it isn't satire, like nursery schools, colleges have been offering "napping stations," spending thousands per "napping pods," rather than making students go back to their own rooms to take a nap if they get tired.

In September, CSU-Fullerton brought a special nap trailer to campus, where students could take a 40-minute snooze in personalized compartments. Last semester, the same campus hosted a “Sleep Eazzy” event, designating a special nap area on campus.

Similarly, students can take a 45-minute nap throughout the day at CSU Northridge’s Oasis Wellness Center. The campus purchased six nap pods, which cost about $9,000 each and are outfitted with soft music and "subtle vibrations on the back."

The University of Michigan took a lower-tech approach a few years ago, installing six vinyl cots in the undergraduate library. To make room for the nap spaces, the university removed a bunch of study tables.



ATTACKS AGAINST FREE SPEECH

The attacks on free speech have consistenly gotten worse over the years, and this week we see the following headlines froma  variety of sources, including but not limited to; College Fix - "Student attacked by enraged peers upset at his ‘racist white cis male’ free speech campaign,"- "Students call private GroupMe texts ‘hate speech,’ demand authors’ punishment," and "University distributes seven-page speech guide," with 35 phrases that are frowned upon in their guidelines.

One of the most egregious examples is reported by Campus Reform, with the headline "Safe Spaces: Where Free Press Dies."

Organizers at Pomona College prohibited a reporter from The Claremont Independent from taking notes at an open meeting because the event location is a "safe space."

EMASCULATING MEN

Another ongoing theme I have reported on in the past is the emasculation of men in American society, with the "gender neutral" clothing and men wearing dresses is the "new norm",  where it is hard to even tell a male from a female these days, to which we see outright attacks against men in colleges this week, with one report showing that according to students at Claremont Colleges, "masculinity" is not considered "toxic to our mental health."

Masculinity can be extremely toxic to our mental health, both to the people who are pressured to perform it and the people who are inevitably influenced by it,” the event’s organizers state in the description.

One of the best responses to this comes from an SQ note on the link to the article which states "NEW MOTTO FOR THEM -ABANDON TESTICLES ALL YE WHO ENTER HERE!"

Also from Campus Reform we see that "Cornell students voted overwhelmingly this week to provide free tampons in all bathrooms, including men’s rooms."

I was reminded this morning of scripture that relates to what we are witnessing, specifically Isaiah 3:12 - "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths."

BOTTOM LINE

The issues we are noticing across the country, from people that seem to think welfare is a career and the whole entitlement mindset, to the attacks against free speech by labeling any speech liberals do not like as "hate" speech, and other attacks against our constitutionally guaranteed rights, to the emascualtion of males, are all stemming from the fact that children are being taught all of this mentality from liberal teachers, when studies and psychiatrists have found liberalism to be an actual mental disorders.

No wonder this country is a mess!

In answer to the headline question of "what is going to happen when the prozac wears off and the iTune batteries die?,  is we will have a nation of people hunting for their napping stations so they can curl up in a little ball and suck their thumb because they are incapable of dealing with the real world.

In the video below, from October 10, 2016, there are some great examples of social justice warrior fails, but I would like to highlight a segment at approximately the 4:52 minute mark where we get an inside view of the liberal mindset when a guest explains why she feels Halloween costums should be banned because they may hurt someones "feelings."

The exchange between Kelly, Shapiro and the liberal social justice warrior is definitely a must-see.

Toronto Blue Jays Announcer Will Not Say ‘Indians’ During ALCS Broadcast

As the Toronto Blue Jays head to Cleveland for Games 1 and 2 of the American League Championship Series (ALCS), one announcer is refusing to say the team’s name on air.
Longtime Blue Jays announcer Jerry Howarth said on The Jeff Blair Show Thursday that he will refrain from saying “Indians” on air during the games against Cleveland, WKYC reports.

Howarth told the radio show he made the decision more than 20 years ago because the term is found offensive by the First Nations people.

Howarth said he also does not refer to the Atlanta Braves during games.

Howarth shared that he was deeply touched by a letter he received in the off-season from a fan who was a member of a First Nation who said he was offended when terms such as “Braves” and “Indians” were used in games.

“For the rest of my career I will not say ‘Indian’ or ‘Brave’ and if I was in the NFL I would not say ‘Redskins,’” Howarth told The Toronto Star, referring to the Washington football team.
