Reason has an article on Neil Gorsuch’s dissent in a case that ruled that schools have the right to have kids arrested for burping in class. After reading it, I don’t want Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court… I want him cloned eight times and replace everybody on the Supreme Court.
There’s this Narrative, y’see. The Narrative is that “Donald Trump’s presidency is encouraging racist, alt-right, white nationalists to commit hate crimes against Muslims and people of color.”
So when a story comes along that fits The Narrative, it’s immediately published/broadcast. (“Too good to check.”) Like this one.
On Monday, news outlets across Wisconsin – and the nation – posted the story that “two Beloit students in residence halls were targets of hate crimes.”
Beloit College officials first reported that an anti-Semitic note was placed under a student’s door last Friday. Early Monday morning, an anti-Muslim threat was found spray-painted on another student’s residence hall door, and a swastika on a nearby wall.
Beloit security reportedly discovered the words, “Die,” “Sand nigger go home,” and #Muslimban in red paint on the student’s door on the second floor of the college’s Bushnell Hall.
And then it turns out to be fake. There’s a brief “correction” and then they go on to publicize the next fake hate crime that fits The Narrative.
“A Beloit College student admitted fabricating an incident in which a swastika, anti-Muslim and ethnic and racial slurs were spray-painted on a dorm room door and a nearby wall.”
The only violent hate crimes are happening on the left, e.g. Berkeley, CA
Among the leftists that haven’t explicitly endorsed last night’s violence in Berkeley (see previous thread) the standard line is: “Well, of course I don’t approve of violence but I do support canceling the event because Milo is a Nazi.”
I would vehemently argue that denying a person’s right to speak is every bit as wrong as smashing windows and setting fires to prevent that person from speaking. And I should not have to explain why.
Furthermore, what the left is doing is tacitly admitting “We can’t win a debate based on our arguments.” They are admitting that they are intellectually bankrupt and have no alternative other than to shut down opposition points of view.
People who think they can win a debate want to have the debate. People who know they can’t win a debate will do everything possible to prevent the debate from happening.
So, the SuperBowl is not only going to feature two teams I couldn’t care less about, but also a Halftime Lecture on Social Justice from Lady Gaga? Oh, man, I can’t wait… to make a big batch of Chili and spend all day playing ‘Space Engineers.’
Inspired by the thugs who arsoned, vandalized, and assaulted their way through UC-Berkeley, a New York fashion designer has designed a line of menswear to take the Black Bloc look mainstream.
New York-based designer Robert James debuted a collection that was unmistakably, “decidedly militant in tone” in order to “create clothes that felt like armor.” The look screams “Occupy radical chic.”
So, whether you’re beating a Trump supporter unconscious with a metal pipe, or just spraying painting “STOP HATE” on a Mormon Church, you will look fabulous, darling. Oh, the romance of socialist revolution! Why be a plain vanilla college student who has led a quiet life of white privilege, when you can be a revolutionary like Che Guevara! Put on that distressed leather jacket, cover your face with a black bandana, and go out there and start a fire in a trash can! Smash some other people’s car windows! That will show those jocks from high school who never invited you to their parties and got to screw all the good-looking girls! You’re down with the struggle, baby! When you take your laundry home — including the pair of pants you crapped in when you thought you saw some riot police headed your way — make sure you tell Mom and Dad’s maid to follow the f–king care instructions TO THE LETTER! Can’t have your best bad-ass riot clothes ruined by that insolent wench.
