The Left Finds Another Moonbat Athlete to Lionize

San Francisco Quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the National Anthem and has justified it stating that he — like the Hijab-Wearing Olympic Islamist — thinks America is a racist country unworthy of his respect. 

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media

Says the guy with the nine-figure contract sitting on a bench surrounded by millionaire black athletes.

Judging from the comments (not so much at the link, but at this site and other outlets covering the story), his supporters are defending him because his actions are ‘Free Speech.” The NFL is defending him on the same basis: “ In respecting such American principles as freedom of religion and freedom of expression, we recognize the right of an individual to choose to participate, or not, in our celebration of the national anthem.”

And, of course, what he did is free speech. But do you think he would be receiving the support of the NFL and leftists generally if he had said “Marriage is only between a man and woman,” or “If people are in this country illegally, they should be deported?”

University Study Slams Zoos for Promoting Binary Notions of Gender

Posted by V the K at 12:32 pm - August 26, 2016.
Filed under: Transgender Issues

I am not making this up.

The study says that adults seem to want to characterize zoo animals according to “binary” gender terminology, forcing the camels and penguins and elephants of this world to conform to either “male” or “female,” even though those particular zoo animals haven’t truly examined whether they would like to identify as their birth gender. Although zoology does allow for checking the actual sex of an animal, adults should, apparently, refrain from referring to zoo animals as a “girl” or a “boy,” unless they’ve asked the said animals.

Another problem: Parents tend to use zoo exhibits to model traditional family roles. The study says “adults mobilize zoo exhibits as props for modeling their own normative gender displays.”

The left, literally, has nothing better to do.

 

Play Stupid Feminist Games, Win Stupid Feminist Prizes

A (presumably) feminist woman in Britain whines that men don’t flirt anymore and it gives her sadfeels.

She claims that men have a duty to flirt with women in order to maintain women’s self-esteem and goes on to suggest — of course — that the Government should compel men to flirt with women. “British men need some encouragement, maybe even government intervention,” – because government makes everything better. Well done, progressives, your brainwashing has been a success.

Some sort of winter chill has frosted over British men’s gonads, and it’s leaving us all out in the cold.

“Some sort of winter chill…” could mean, perhaps, that feminists have so politicized male-female interaction that just looking at a woman or talking to one the wrong way can get you charged with “sexual harassment” (remember our crazy friend from the other day?) or even “sexual assault.” Literally anything can be “sexual harassment” if a woman decides that’s what it is.

Even when a man says something as simple as “Have a nice day,” we are able to read between the lines and know his motive, and 9 times out of 10, it’s not about well wishes. It’s the tone, the setting, the look on his face that tells a woman that there’s a sexual power play at work, and she’s losing.

When someone (usually a man) defends certain behaviors as “innocent” it shows a lack of understanding of the deeply ingrained, totally imbalanced gender dynamics that exist on a city street, and between men and women on a more general social level since time began.

Gay dudes, it is a real blessing to be able to opt out of the gender wars.

Let’s face it, the real difference between flirting and sexual harassment is entirely whether the woman is attracted to the guy. How the hell is the guy supposed to know? If the billionaire character in Fifty Shades of Grey had been unemployed and living in a trailer park, it would have been rape porn.

Happy Chick Equality Day, or Whatever.

Doctors Without Borders not only wouldn’t lift a finger to help free American hostage Kayla Mueller who was eventually murdered by ISIS, they also refused to pass on information about her to her family.

Even though she was kidnapped by ISIS from a Doctors Without Borders vehicle, and had helped a friend install equipment at a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Syria, the prestigious humanitarian group refused to help negotiate for the freedom of American hostage Kayla Mueller, her parents tell ABC News.

Marsha and Carl Mueller of Prescott, Arizona, said the group refused to speak with them for months and then withheld critical information provided by freed Doctors Without Borders hostages — information that directly concerned their daughter and was needed in order to begin negotiations for her release.

 

Why Is There No Alt-Left?

Posted by V the K at 2:20 pm - August 25, 2016.
Filed under: Democrats & Double Standards

Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Media Complex are attempting to tie Donald Trump (and by extension, *all conservatives* and *all Republicans*) to the “Alt-Right” Fringe; a group they characterize as being pretty much exactly the same as the KKK.

There is no equivalent to the Alt-Right on the Left. There is no fringe racist group that supports the Great Left-Wing Progressive Coalition but embarrasses and is shunned by “respectable” members of the coalition.

The reason for this is simple: The Left welcomes its racist hate groups into the Mainstream of its coalition.

#BlackLivesMatter is a racist Hate Group; they were paraded on stage at the Democrat National Convention. The National Council of La Raza (The Race) is a racist hate group; and their members serve as senior policy advisors to the Democrats on “immigration.” The Muslim Brotherhood is a violent Hate Group; Hillary’s most senior advisor is a member and a former editor of a radical Islamist magazine. The Feminist Movement has become, largely, a cult of man-hatred, but Democrats proudly court the feminist vote and promise them grain from the Federal trough.

There’s no Alt-Left because hatred and extremism are at the core of the progressive movement.

Progressive Policies Promote Segregation

Posted by V the K at 8:45 am - August 25, 2016.
Filed under: Liberalism Run Amok

Kevin Williamson notes that America’s most progressive cities — New York, San Francisco, Detroit — are also its most segregated. And this is primarily due to progressive policies that discourage the development of affordable housing for the middle and lower classes.

 New York City’s density is well under half that of such ordinary cities as Barcelona, Buenos Aires, or Warsaw. New York is remarkable among U.S. cities for its tall buildings – and remarkable among world cities for its lack of them. Only a tiny number of New York City residences — less than 2 percent — are located in tall buildings, meaning those 20 stories or taller, far less than in comparable cities around the world. The number is even lower for cities such as Los Angeles (which actually has a higher population density than New York) and San Francisco. Building taller buildings makes urban residential real estate less expensive per square foot — you can have higher buildings or higher prices. New York, where the nice progressives want to put caps on tall buildings, has chosen higher prices — and, therefore, economic segregation, pushing the poor farther into the Bronx or New Jersey.

I don’t expect many comments on this post. This kind of thing — the dynamic interaction of policy and demographic effects — interests me, but it isn’t everyone’s cup of Earl Grey.

Let ‘Em Freeze in the Dark

The Environmentalist Extremists that run the state of Oregon have passed a law outlawing the use of coal to generate electricity.  They also oppose nuclear power. And they oppose hydroelectric power because dams are icky. Environmental Extremists have also successfully sued to prevent the development of wind power.

What does that leave? Oh, right solar power.

In Oregon.

Have you ever lived in Oregon? I have. Solar power is not exactly viable in a place where it rains, like, 270 days a year.

And they say conservatives are opposed to technological progress.

If only smug hippie liberalism could generate electricity, Oregon would look like Times Square.

Government Helping Again

Since 2007, the price of an EpiPen… a device to inject life-saving epinephrine to prevent people with severe allergies from dying due to an allergic reaction, has soard from $100 to $700. Now, why is that? How can a generic technology increase so much in price?

Well, it helps when the FDA is effectively blocking any competition from coming to market.

Also, the price increase was engineered by the CEO of the company that makes the EpiPen. By quintupling the price of the devices, she added over a billion dollars a year to the company’s bottom line and increased her own annual paycheck from $2 Million to almost $20 Million.

And the CEO of the company is the daughter of Democrat Senator Joe Manchin.

Pretty cozy right?

First, they brought back segregation in the form of minority-only lounges and dorms. Now, an American university is bringing back prohibition.

Stanford University has banned all hard liquor at undergraduate parties in an effort to reduce binge drinking on campus.

The new policy comes after Brock Turner, a former Stanford swimmer, received a six-month sentence for sexual assault after a night of heavy drinking, which triggered national outrage and launched a several months long discussion a Stanford about student alcohol consumption.

Well done, Stanford. Your stern stance against alcohol use will doubtless accomplish what your stern stance against sexual assault failed.

Grad students are still allowed to possess liquor (see how generous your bureaucratic masters are) subject to strict regulations about container size, keeping it in the original container, buying it from a state approved source, and consuming it only within strict guidelines set by the university.

See, you still have your freedoms, provided they are exercised in strict compliance with the regulations of the state, the violation of any one of which will result in severe penalties unless your last name is ‘Clinton.’

“We have to accept a little mess.”

Over behind the super-secret, members only paywall at Richochet, a comment that struck a chord with me.

I saw an op-ed piece written in the 1960s when suburbia was discovering zoning laws, the point of which has stayed with me ever since. The writer, a Jewish guy who lived in the Chappaqua New York area, had a brilliant mind, and the piece was great to read. He was talking about the problems that would occur with rigid zoning laws–wow, did he foresee sprawl. Everyone now is going back to mixed-used zoning. He perfectly predicted the result of the zoning laws that were being passed at that time. His op-ed piece ended by saying, “We have to accept a little mess.”

What an awesome philosophy. “We have to accept a little mess.” Meaning, Government can’t control everything and it shouldn’t try.

“We have to accept a little mess.”

Amen, brother.

It seems every time the Government addresses a problem (and especially when the problem is designated a “crisis”) they end up not wasting loads of money, not solving the problem, often making things worse, and then demanding more Government intervention to solve the new problems they created from their approach to the old problem.

Unfortunately, the busybody, control freak progressive left could never abide the thought of people deciding things for themselves and making choices they don’t agree with. They can’t imagine a state that… while staying out of the bedroom, of course … inserts itself into every business transaction, every social activity, and indeed every human interaction, down to policing the very language that comes out of our mouths.

“Think of all the little messes people would make if we gave them the freedom to choose for themselves,” they say.

We can deal with the little messes.

It’s gigantic, out-of-control Government we can’t deal with.

Biitter Feminist Blames the Patriarchy for Alcoholism

Posted by V the K at 8:50 am - August 23, 2016.
Filed under: Random Thoughts

A feminist interprets every interaction with a male as a “microaggression” and an excuse for her (and all women’s) drinking problem.

I round up some girlfriends and we spend hundreds of dollars in a hipster bar, drinking rye Manhattans and eating tapas and talking about the latest crappy, non-gender-blind things that have happened to us in meetings and on business trips and at performance review time. They toast me for taking one for the team. And when we are good and numb we Uber home, thinking Look at all we’ve earned! That bar with the twinkly lights. That miniature food. This chauffeured black car. We are tough enough to put up with being ignored and interrupted and underestimated every day and laugh it off together. We’ve made it. This is the good life. Nothing needs to change.

What was she angry about?  Well, on this particular occasion, it’s because she had to serve on a panel with three male co-workers to provide orientation to incoming summer interns. And her male co-workers had the absolute gall to say that women were valuable assets to the company.

“The thing about this place,” he says, “is it’s a meritocracy. And merit is gender-blind.” He smiles at me and I stare back. Silent balefulness is all I have to offer, but his smile wavers so I know I’ve pierced some level of smug.

And she apparently works in an office obsessively devoted to Mad Men Cosplay.

At the office, every desk near mine has a bottle of wine or liquor on it in case people are too lazy to walk the 50 feet to one of the well-stocked communal bars we’ve built on our floor.

We get it. She’s miserable, and she drank to cope with her misery (as all women do) and now that she has stopped drinking she sees that it was all the fault of the patriarchy and had nothing whatsoever to do with her own self-absorption. Because that’s what modern feminism teaches women: Put yourself at the center of the universe and blame men for any and all unhappiness.

This Is OK Because Hillary’s a Democrat, Right?

Posted by V the K at 8:02 am - August 23, 2016.
Filed under: Democrats & Double Standards

If Donald Trump’s most senior advisor and trusted aide had been an assistant editor at a rapidly anti-gay publication (say, the Westboro Baptist Turn-Or-Burn Newsletter) for twelve years, a publication that his aide’s mother and brother were still actively involved in, the progressive gay left and the Democrat Media Complex would have a field day with that, am I right?

I mean, that creep Manafort guy had to resign the Trump campaign because of his past dealings with Russia, right?

But, as usual, the rules don’t apply if you’re a Democrat and your last name is Clinton.

A journalism major at George Washington University, Huma Abedin, 40, was listed as “assistant editor” of the [Journal of Minority Muslim Affairs, which featured radically anti-feminist views and backed strict Islamic laws roundly criticized for oppressing women] from 1996 to 2008, when her name was removed from the staff box and she went to work for Clinton at the State Department.

Typical fare in the publication includes a 1996 piece titled “Women’s Rights Are Islamic Rights,” which argues that single moms, working moms and gay couples with children should not be recognized as families.

I guess if that whole selling out State Department favors in return for bribes to the Clinton Global Thingie didn’t bother you, this revelation won’t faze you either. (Huma Abedin was in the middle of that scheme as well.)

It bothers me less that Hillary and Huma are crooks than it does that some 40% of the electorate and 80-90% of the Democrat Party is perfectly fine with that.

I mean, hey, Hillary opened a pickle jar on TV, so she’s obviously totally fit to be president, right?

Also, by the way, someone tried to scale the wall at the Ecuadoran Embassy in London the other night; the place where Julian “Wikileaks” Assange is holed up. He got away before the police could catch him. Interesting, that.

If you’re voting for Hillary Clinton, this is your circus, those are your monkeys.

Questioning the Orthodoxy

Posted by V the K at 6:08 pm - August 22, 2016.
Filed under: Science

Some researchers at Johns Hopkins and Arizona State University challenge the orthodoxy that sexuality is something you’re just born with and can’t do anything about. They also challenge the popular notion that children who feel they might be the wrong sex should be indulged and provided with massive doses of chemicals that will permanently damage their physiology and neurology. (Also, that their parents should be put on television and lauded for their acceptance of their children’s “transgenderism.”)

A groundbreaking report that examines nearly 200 peer-reviewed studies on sexual orientation and gender identity concludes that science hasn’t confirmed key theories about these subjects, including the belief that homosexuals are “born that way.”

And it rejects surgical and hormonal interventions for children who identify as “transgender,” on the grounds that the large majority of such children outgrow identities that conflict with their biological sex.

“Examining research from the biological, psychological and social sciences, this report shows that some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence,” reads an introductory note by Adam Keiper, editor of The New Atlantis, a leading journal of science, technology and ethics that published the report, “Sexuality and Gender.”

“The report has a special focus on the higher rates of mental-health problems among LGBT populations, and it questions the scientific basis of trends in the treatment of children who do not identify with their biological sex,” said Keiper.

“More effort is called for to provide these people with the understanding, care and support they need to lead healthy, flourishing lives.”

Frankly, I never thought it ought to matter whether sexuality was congenital or chosen. By that same token, I’ve also always believed that human sexuality was far too complex to reduce to a simplistic matter of genes.

In any case, these researchers are doing something that’s all but forbidden in the modern world; challenging the validity of a belief that is strongly held by the Social Justice Left. It would be nice if we could have honest discussions about these things; but then, you can’t have nice things when mentally deranged people with overwrought feelings and a political agenda are involved in the conversation.

Provided the lie advances a left-wing narrative, of course.

Remember that thing last week that was such a much bigger deal than Hillary’s influence peddling and pathological lying? That thing where some US Olympic swimmer said that some men claiming to be police pulled guns on them and tried to rob them? And the Brazilian police said, “No, the ugly Americans vandalized one of our beautiful Brazilian gas station men’s rooms and made up the story about armed robbery.”

And remember how our media talking heads waved the story as an exampled of how our athletes “typified the stereotype of the ugly American abroad.”

Well….

Ryan Lochte and the US Olympic Swim Team were probably telling the truth; the corrupt, third-world socialist police force was probably lying. Why do you think the American Left was so skeptical of the former, and so willing to believe the latter?

Trump Says Democrats Are Using Blacks for Votes While Keeping Them Down

Posted by V the K at 8:33 am - August 22, 2016.
Filed under: 2016 Presidential Election

He’s right about that.

Trump focusing on Democrats’ disservice to the Black Community is a smart move. Even if it doesn’t win over any black votes, it forces the MFM to talk about it, it puts Democrats on the defensive, it helps defuse the ‘racist’ tag, and it gives ‘moderate’ white voters something they can agree with Trump on without looking racist.

And the left is, of course, squealing about this. Oh, yes they are.

“If Democrats are so bad for blacks,” whine the spologists, “then why do they get 90% of the black vote.” When you give populations just enough to get by, and brainwash them to believe that someone else is going to take what little they have away from them… a message pounded in daily by the media, by ‘community activists,’ and by those selected politicians and bureaucrats given positions by the party…also the black Democrat Media Operatives linked above … it’s a pretty effective means of control.  Especially when Republicans are too cowed and too timid to offer an alternative.

Not to mention, Democrat-voting among minorities is also enforced by groups like #BlackLivesMatter advancing a phony narrative that racist police are constantly shooting innocent black teenagers who weren’t doin’ nuffin’ and are lavishly funded by Democrat-front groups and Black Churches, which are largely exempted from the enforcement of laws against churches engaging in politicking.

Please be advised and understanding of the significant pressures we as Council Members are being adhered too, as well as being bullied and forced to make unlike leadership decisions. Decisions are what they are and as leaders we make the hard choices as elected to do so as “advised”. The majority should always and democratically rule. No one Council member does it alone as always regurgitated.

I will not be moved in my service to my Constituency and for those who stand before the Council and boast of getting rid of each and everyone of us to include a Council Member and family, who never voted for either one of us in the first place, but continues to disavow the rules.

I will act as the representative of Ward 5 and the Mayor duty to my right hand, serve the Public without blemish and from scare tactics from a few racist and Republicansupporters. I could care less about being singled out or ignored, my duty is for the people who elected me to fight for theirs.

Follow the rules adopted that carry your moral fiber as an elected official not to impress upon a group of demonstrators. Vote your conscious not your election. It is a privilege to serve the people not a faction. There are still a many residents that have been hurt by the past and still paying unjustly here in the future. We have been deprived and disenfranchised for years under the rule of a chosen few. I request that under this leadership you ask the hard question. Where do we go from here and how do we fix this generational mess without destroying your personal integrity.

Additionally, the media or newspaper does not run the City, you do. This is not an election-time opportunity, we have a mess that’s been dealt to us from the past along with the relationships that have cost our largely populated constituents greater harm.

Our economic and financial development is in crisis and until this Council set aside the foolishness of one and Facebook cronies, we will not be able to move forward.
