On Airstrip 1, MiniTru is going to close down an Orthodox Jewish Girls School for refusing to reach its pre-pubescent children the state’s Mandated Curriculum on the Celebration of Alternative Lifestyles.

A private Orthodox Jewish elementary school called the Vishnitz Girls School in Hackney, north London, is facing closure by the British government because it does not include curriculum that teaches children about homosexuality and gender reassignment surgery.

According to Heat Street, a report by the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Schools (Ofsted) says that the Vishnitz Girls School does not teach its 212 attending children — aged three through eight — “a full understanding of fundamental British values.” [Emphasis Emphasized].

The Lesbian, Gay, Bullying Totalitarians (LGBT) have pushed a similar law in California.

Leftie juvenilia – with a smidge of progress

Watching lefties digest new political happenings is often like a scene from Harrison Bergeron, the dystopian future where no one is permitted to do anything skillfully.

Lefties are handicapped by their own needs and delusions, the poor dears. They can’t handle the truth. So they ignore large parts of it, fixate on a fragment or two, distort it, then fall over like a ballet dancer wearing unnecessary weights. Still, they might learn something – on the margins.

Laura Loomer and Jack Posobiec’s Shakespeare in the Park protest was somewhat new-ish: Conservatives bringing home the Left’s disruption tactics (though still being comparatively polite about it). At this link, you can watch Seth Myers and Amy Poehler struggle to address it.

As you’d expect, Myers and Poehler ignore the real context and point of the protest, making a laughable Straw Man out of it; then laugh dutifully, complete with wide eyes and shouting. It’s fine, it’s how they operate. As you’d expect. Except for one thing.

It does dawn on them that maybe people disrupting events isn’t what we all need and the Left should try to walk that one back. They slip in these words to their audience:

Free speech isn’t about just protecting speech you like. So, if you think it’s terrible to interrupt _Julius Caesar_, you have to think it’s terrible to interrupt Ann Coulter…She gets to speak too; liberals cannot be hypocrites when it comes to free speech…so, be OK with it when Ted Nugent says “President Obama can suck my machine gun.”

I left out the crap they wrapped around it. I’m saying, we can be grateful for the small things. Two leftie celebrities had a moment of self-awareness, and smuggled it into their audience. Will it take?

Airstrip 1 Cracks Down on Rudeness Toward Mohammedans

Filed under: Free Speech

On Airstrip 1, a man has been sentenced to over a year in prison for saying mean things about Mohammedans on Facebook.  True, he said some pretty awful things about bombing mosques and throwing Mohammedans on bonfires, but the key point is, all he did was say these things.

I would be curious to know how many people on Airstrip 1 have been arrested for saying mean things about Christians.

The Knock on the Door in the Middle of the Night

German Police raided 36 homes to punish people for saying things the state disapproves of in social media.

In a coordinated campaign across 14 states, the German police on Tuesday raided the homes of 36 people accused of hateful postings over social media, including threats, coercion and incitement to racism.

Most of the raids concerned politically motivated right-wing incitement, according to the Federal Criminal Police Office, whose officers conducted home searches and interrogations. But the raids also targeted two people accused of left-wing extremist content, as well as one person accused of making threats or harassment based on someone’s sexual orientation.

“The still high incidence of punishable hate posting shows a need for police action,” Holger Münch, president of the Federal Criminal Police Office, said in a statement.

California Senator Endorses Antifa Tactics

Filed under: Free Speech

According to California Senator Dianne Feinstein, if Antifa demands that a college not allow a conservative speaker to speak, the college should not allow the speaker to speak. Because public safety.

After reading aloud the First Amendment in her opening remarks, Sen. Feinstein said, “The fact of the matter is that there are certain occasions on which individuals assemble not to act peaceably, but to act as destructively as they possibly can.” She went on to say, “When you have a set group of people that come to create a disturbance, some of them even wearing masks or wearing certain clothing, what do you do?” Feinstein said police aren’t always equipped to handle this situation making it “a horse of another color.” She concluded, “I do believe that the university has a right to protect its students from demonstrations once they become acts of violence.”

In other words, give Antifa what they want; censorship power over speech.

And just kind of hope that after successfully using violence to achieve one goal, they will never use it again to achieve any other goals.

Professional LGBT Activists Outraged About Christian Day Event

Posted by V the K at 8:30 am - June 20, 2017.
Filed under: Free Speech,Liberal Intolerance

The Lesbian Gay Bullying Totalitarians (LGBT) are angry that the St. Louis Cardinals are holding a ‘Christian Day,’ which the team has done for 30 years. They are also angry that the Cardinals are allowing former player Lance Berkman to be the spokesman for Christian Day. Berkman had previously said mean, intolerant  things (in their opinion) about the transgendereds. Like this:

The issue is, what to do about a 15 or 16-year-old boy who thinks he’s a girl and wants to shower with the girls. Maybe he is [transgender], maybe he’s confused. But I wouldn’t want him in the shower with my daughters. We shouldn’t have the rights of 2 percent of the population trump the rights of the other 98 percent.

Which is, of course, a ‘dog whistle’ for ‘Kill all the gays and transgendereds!” I guess, or something, according to the Bullying Totalitarians. (Any opinions not precisely in line with the social justice left are “Hate Speech.”) They want the event canceled, Berkman to be sent to tolerance camp, the team colors changed to pink and teal, and massive extortion payments to be made to LGBT organizations. So far, the Cardinals aren’t backing down.

Why do I suspect that a ‘Muslim Day’ would not be a problem?

Some Good News on the Free Speech Front

By an 8-0 vote, the Supreme Court of the United States has upheld the right of band made up of Asian-American members to call themselves ‘The Slants.’ The band applied to trademark their name and were denied by the Patent and Trademark Office under 15 U.S.C. Section 1502(a) which prohibits the registration of a trademark that may “disparage . . . or bring . . . into contemp[t] or disrepute” any “persons, living or dead.” All eight justices (Justice Gorsuch joined the court after the case was argued) held this anti-disparagement provision flatly unconstitutional.

[N]o matter how the point is phrased, [the] unmistakable thrust [of the government’s argument] is this: The Government has an interest in preventing speech expressing ideas that offend. And, as we have explained, that idea strikes at the heart of the First Amendment. Speech that demeans on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, disability, or any other similar ground is hateful; but the proudest boast of our free speech jurisprudence is that we protect the freedom to express “the thought that we hate.”

This is the precise opposite of what social justice wankers are being taught at Berkeley, Yale, and other leftist Asylums of Higher Learning.

How many New Yorkers salivate over Trump assassination? This many

Laura Loomer and Jack Posobiec disrupt a performance of that Julius Caesar we’ve been talking about:

YouTube Preview Image

It’s inspiring – Jack gets out the words “The blood of Steve Scalise is on your hands!” – but what struck me was, the packed house. Does Shakespeare in the Park draw that kind of crowd, normally?

Laura was arrested; you can help her defense fund at freelaura.com (scroll down).

She discusses it all at length with Stefan Molyneux. After seeing it in person, she agrees with his suggestion that the staging is intentional, graphic, bloody “assassination-orgy porn” recalling ISIS tactics. (So much for any comparisons to that 2012 production in which an Obama-like Julius Caesar was handled with dignity.)

The Face(book) of Evil

The Right-o-sphere is rife with personal stories of Facebook, Google/Youtube and Twitter either de-monetizing, restricting, throttling, censoring or banning conservative and libertarian voices.

Facebook seems happy to do it – while allowing Islamists the run of the place, to the point where PM Theresa May called for Internet censorship after the recent Islamist mass murders in Manchester.

Earlier this year, Mark Zuckerberg said:

[Terrorist attacks are] carried out with a goal to spread fear and distrust, and turn members of a community against each other. I believe the only sustainable way to fight back against those who seek to divide us is to create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate, and where every single person in every country feels connected and cared for and loved. That’s the world we can and must build together.

This is so misguided that, coming from a nominally-intelligent man, one must almost wonder if some evil force possesses him? Because it happens to be what the wolf would say to the hounds if it could; or what Satan might say when cornered.

Newsflash, Mr. Zuckerberg: terrorist attacks are carried out with a goal of killing infidels and establishing the supremacy of Islam. Period. You have to admit a problem’s true nature, before you can solve it.

I don’t want to “fight back against those who seek to divide us.” Because that makes zero sense. Anyone who ever does anything good or new, or who takes a stand (be it true or false) on anything, “seeks to divide us.” It happens. It makes much more sense to fight back against those who seek to subjugate and/or kill us.

The terrorist losers use your own platform, Mr. Zuckerberg, and it’s not clear if you make much effort to stop them. Much less, an effort greater than what you put into stopping U.S. conservatives, or other critics of Hillary or the Big Government that you love so much.

Recently, a Pakistani man was sentenced to death for alleged blasphemy – on his Facebook page. Facebook claims innocence; “we do not provide any government with direct access to people’s data. We will continue to protect our community from unnecessary or overreaching government intervention.”

But I don’t know if I can believe that. Because:

Is Facebook an accessory to Pakistan’s judicial murder of Taimoor Raza? We need to know. I couldn’t find any recent statement about it.

And of course, that Facebook would ever give a hoot about anti-Jewish or anti-Christian blasphemy is unimaginable. (As it should be; the point here is Facebook’s extreme double standard.)

Right now it appears that Facebook puts WAY more into stopping conservatives and libertarians – people who stand for life and liberty – than it puts into stopping various kinds of Islamic murderer. That’s evil.

Hat tip Steven Crowder. By the way, his Painting Muhammad video is must-see.

Anything to avoid saying ‘Muslim’

The first step to solving a problem for real, is: Naming it honestly.

As Mark Steyn points out (hat tip V), our leftie-globalist-academic Superiors want us to believe that “sowing division” is what’s wrong with the endless stream of mass murders by Muslim terrorists. Because the desirable opposite is “unity”, led by those same Superiors.

Thus, they subtly equate their critics with Muslim terrorists. If, say, you’re a free-market populist who rejects the elite consensus, you’re as bad as a Muslim mass murderer. Because you’re also “sowing division”.

It’s similar to how the Left represents “hate speech” (i.e., criticism or rejection of the Left) as a form of violence, unprotected by the First Amendment. Under such insane terms, the Left is allowed to attack you with physical violence because they are only protecting themselves from the “violence” that you were about to think, or say.

Re: the London attacks, British media says they were done by “men of Mediterranean coloring”. It has a courtroom precision to it, which is nice, but also don’t say Muslim.

London’s Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, did at least call them “cowardly terrorists”. And Prime Minister Theresa May slammed the “evil ideology of Islamist extremism” – but then went back to calling for “unity”, plus Internet censorship. As opposed to, say, deporting the UK’s known Muslim radicals and improved vetting of Muslim immigrants, or better enforcement of the UK’s existing laws against inciting violence.

It’s beyond question that the murderers were doing it for Allah. One can only hope that the good people of the UK will wake up.

Violence comes from the Left, part II

Hat tip to GP commenters for the stories here.

In Portland OR, a guy attacked people on a train, killing two and injuring a third. Naturally, the left-leaning coverage emphasizes his anti-Jewish and anti-Muslim views and his claims of being Christian, using them to call him a “white supremacist.” Which seems to be a leap.

“According to some preliminary witness statements, he was kind of spewing hate about a lot of different things,” said [police Sgt.] Simpson. “So not specifically and exclusively anti-Muslim. … So that’s why it’s hard to say at this point was he directing it at any one person, or was it just kind of in general to everyone around him.”

“We don’t know if he’s got mental health issues, we don’t know if he’s under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or all of the above,” said Simpson…

Court records show that [the attacker, Jeremy Joseph] Christian was convicted in 2002 of robbery, kidnapping and a weapons charge, according to the AP.

Ohhh…they’re saying it just because someone else said it:

The Portland Mercury reports that the suspect was a “known local white supremacist.”

The Echo Chamber at work. Now, maybe it’s true? Could be. I have no skin (so to speak) in that game.

But here’s what they’re not telling you. What they’re conveniently leaving out. The guy is anti-Trump and a supporter of Jill Stein and Bernie Sanders. He tweeted, “I gonna kill everybody who voted for Trump or Hillary!”

Which kinda makes him a leftie. Hmm. Maybe that’s why media have not covered this incident much, overall?

Likewise for Linwood Kaine, the son of Democrat VP nominee Tim Kaine (whom I presume is a Clinton-Kaine supporter).

Prosecutors are filing criminal charges against 8 counter-protesters who disrupted the “March 4 Trump” rally at the Minnesota State Capitol on March 4. Among those charged is Linwood Kaine, the son of former Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine…

The permitted rally inside the Capitol Rotunda was interrupted by protesters that Saturday, some of whom turned violent. A group of Trump supporters described the scene to Fox 9.

“They brought in pepper spray and tasers, and went after anyone with a Trump sign,” said Sandra Trater, a supporter of President Trump.

The charges are misdemeanors. But hey, at least they’re happening. Jazz Shaw notes:

Kaine’s son Linwood has only been charged with the more benign sounding counts of fleeing on foot, concealing identity in a public place and obstructing the legal process. But he was definitely part of the group that was attacking and not one of the “peaceful counter-protesters” as they are being described in many media outlets.

Violence comes from the Left

We’ve been having fun in the comments about Representative-Elect Greg Gianforte (R-MT). He body-slammed a reporter in rage, probably committing misdemeanor assault, then lied about what he did. Later, he apologized – but only sort of – because he never said what for and, to my knowledge, he has not yet corrected his false witness. (Feel free to update me in the comments)

His actions are bad. Both violence and lying are totally unacceptable, in our politics, from whatever side. And I think he’s just sorry that he was caught. If he merits prosecution (or censure or expulsion in the House), let the right thing happen.

He also needs to be seen in perspective. As usual, Tucker Carlson and V the K nail it. From V:

Gianforte doesn’t seem like someone I’d defend to the last, but I’m not going to let people who supported Ted Kennedy and Gerry Studds lecture me on who’s unfit to serve in Congress.

Also, is it just me, or has this one dust-up between a Republican congressman and a reporter gotten more mass media coverage than all the violence inflicted by Antifa, the Portlandia Anti-Trump mob, the Middlebury/Berkeley/UW-Madison college Democrats, and the woman in Tennesee who tried to run a Republican congressman off the road combined?

And Tucker Carlson for your enjoyment:
YouTube Preview Image
Tucker has a laundry list of recent, left-wing political violence – including threats and violence against at least 3 Republican Congresspeople.

Gianforte lost all control of himself – as a 56-year old man – and muddied the waters. For that, he has my contempt. But he’s a globule of mud, in a virtual La Brea Tar Pits of left-wing political violence in America today that many Democrats refuse to condemn.

As always, the Left and the Controlled Media (but I repeat myself) would rather pretend that the speck in Republicans’ eyes is the New Coming of Hitler, than look at the many logs in their own.

Some stuff that some people probably think we should acknowledge

Consider this an open thread to talk about anything listed here, or not listed here.

  • Eric Clanton has been arrested by Berkeley police.

    Score one for the good guys. This is the Nutty Professor who was allegedly assaulting people with bike locks on behalf of Antifa, during those riots in Berkeley.

    “His work in political philosophy also centers on mass incarceration and the prison system,” Clanton’s former faculty page read. “He is currently exploring restorative justice from an anti-authoritarian perspective.”

    I hope Prof. Clanton will be finding out a lot about mass incarceration, the prison system, restorative justice, and authority.

  • The 4th Circuit has blocked Trump’s travel suspension.

    I find this a bit of a yawner. President Trump’s orders on the suspension (sometimes called a “Muslim Ban” by our biased media) have been pretty reasonable. The opinions blocking the suspension have been mostly ridiculous. There’s nothing I can do about it except hope it goes to the Supreme Court. And SCOTUS will do whatever they’re going to do, one way or the other.

  • The Gianforte matter. Again, yawns from me. If Gianforte committed assault, let the police/justice system take care of it and let him rot in jail. That’s what the police/justice system is for. Let it work. There, I just condemned Gianforte (provided he’s guilty).
  • NYT reporting that Russian officials discussed how they might influence Trump. Again: Yawn. Does anyone think that Russian officials hadn’t spent the previous 8 years discussing how they might influence Hillary and Obama?
  • This is more interesting. The Washington Post discusses how Russians may or may not have tipped off the FBI that Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch was planning to block any prosecution of Hillary Clinton in her e-mail scandal.

    So…Hillary Clinton(‘s campaign) colluded with the Obama administration, to block investigation and/or prosecution? And Russia had spies, in the Obama administration? Or somebody fooled them with phony tips? Sorry, my head is spinning from all the Inside Baseball.

Dangerous Faggot

I have unblocked the word “faggot” in our comments section. It was past time, for 2 reasons:

  • South Park “The F Word” made “fag” OK in 2009.
  • Milo – it’s impossible to cover him without mentioning his “Dangerous Faggot” lecture tour.

As to Milo, he has re-launched. (He appears around 58:45 in the video.) Highlights:

  • He has raised $12 million for a new media and book-publishing company that will be dedicated to ending political correctness and “making the lives of journalists, professors, politicians, feminists, Black Lives Matter activists and other professional victims a living hell.”
  • He will be suing Simon & Schuster (presumably for breach of contract?), asking another $10 million.
  • He is still planning MILO’S FREE SPEECH WEEK (no dates on it).

I saw this coming, after the Left’s coordinated attack on him in February. He’s not one to stay down and out.

By the way, Vanity Fair hates him. And if you’re thinking “pedophilia”, Milo had a few words for you back in February: “I do not support pedophilia. Period. It is a vile and disgusting crime, perhaps the very worst.” We at GayPatriot agree.

Two for one!

Ann Coulter and Jesse Lee Peterson, together at last. Enjoy!

He’s Baaa-aaaaaack

After Milo’s trouble in February, I knew he’d be back. He has a lot to say, he needs the attention, he’s fun and the camera loves him.

Via Breitbart.com, it’s MILO’S FREE SPEECH WEEK. (I think the all-caps are part of the shtick?)

In light of recent controversies, I am planning a huge multi-day event called MILO’S FREE SPEECH WEEK in Berkeley later this year. We will hold talks and rallies and throw massive parties, all in the name of free expression and the First Amendment. All will be welcome, regardless of political affiliation.

[…]
During MILO’S FREE SPEECH WEEK, we will give out a new free speech prize — the Mario Savio Award — to the person we believe has done most to protect free expression at UC Berkeley and its surrounding area. Each day will be dedicated to a different enemy of free speech, including feminism, Black Lives Matter and Islam.

If UC Berkeley does not actively assist us in the planning and execution of this event, we will extend festivities to an entire month. We will establish a tent city on Sproul Plaza protesting the university’s total dereliction of its duty and encourage students at other universities to follow suit.
I intend to return Berkeley to its rightful place as the home of free speech — whether university administrators and violent far-left antifa thugs like it or not.
– MILO

Mario Savio was, per Wiki, “a key member in the Berkeley Free Speech Movement. He is most famous for his passionate speeches, especially the ‘put your bodies upon the gears’ address given at Sproul Hall…on December 2, 1964.”

P.S. I respect and admire Ann Coulter, but do you want to know the difference between her and Milo? A penis and $20,000. (My understanding is that she charges 20K to speak to College Republicans, while he charges them zero. If that’s incorrect, I would be happy to hear it in the comments.)

The Left Explains Why It Opposes Free Speech

Posted by V the K at 10:01 am - April 20, 2017.
Filed under: Free Speech

If I read this manifesto from the students of Pomonoa College and the Claremont Colleges right, the reason the Radical Democrat Left opposes Free Speech is because Free Speech would lead people to the discovery of Objective Truth. Objective Truth is historically associated with white males, and is therefore bad.

“The idea that there is a single truth—‘the Truth’—is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment . . . This construction is a myth and white supremacy, imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and the United States of America are all of its progeny. The idea that the truth is an entity for which we must search, in matters that endanger our abilities to exist in open spaces, is an attempt to silence oppressed peoples.”

So rather than seek the Truth (which is what the White Supremacist Patriarchy does), we should instead constantly shout the approved politically correct slogans and sociological buzzwords at each other. That’s my takeaway from the  manifesto, anyway.

Taken to its logical conclusion, we ought to reject gravity, because our understanding of gravity is an “objective truth” of the White Supremacist Patriarchy. Members of “Marginalized communities” should be able to throw themselves from the roofs of academic building and fly. Because once you are “woke,” you will realize that gravity is a White Man’s Construct, and anyone who accepts gravity is a tool of the White Supremacist Patriarchy.

Many of the students who wrote the manifesto will go on to careers as college administrators and Government bureaucrats with immense power over the lives of the citizenry. Ponder that.

Thought for the day

A sign seen at the recent Berkeley riots:

Hate speech IS Free speech

My thoughts on the above:

The Left tries to criminalize “hate speech” because, as Milo likes to point out, the Left wants to justify their own physical violence. Defining offensive speech as a crime will blur the line between speech and actions. Then lefties can claim that their many crimes of physical assault, vandalism, robbery, murder, etc., are self-defense, or justified by the victim’s beliefs/speech that are so offensive. Muslims try to pull the same trick.

I believe in keeping a strong line between speech and actions. For example, I believe that someone’s taunting (words) or alleged political-social beliefs or drawings of Mohammed can never justify your throwing the first punch at them.

The world does have some hateful people in it and genuine occurrences of “hate speech” – and I don’t like them. But that’s what my own right of free speech is for: to refute others’ dumb/wrong speech. And my right to free association, also: so that I may avoid people I don’t like, kick them out of my own house at least, and so on.

In this dim and confused world, any truthful speech will offend somebody, somewhere. The right to speak your conscience freely is the same as the right to say things that will offend others and hurt their feelings. The two are inseparable.

From the comments: A pointer to the Neal Boortz quote,

Free speech is meant to protect unpopular speech. Popular speech, by definition, needs no protection.

UPDATE: On April 20 and as if on cue, Howard Dean said “Hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment.” Wrong, Mr. Dean. Threats and “fighting words” may not be protected, but Ann Coulter’s political speech (what you choose to call “hate speech”) is protected. And should be.

The Left-Wing Fears Debate

Posted by V the K at 8:59 am - February 17, 2017.
Filed under: Free Speech

Left-Winger Bill Maher invited Milo Yiannopoulos to participate in his HBO show that, as I understand it, consists mainly of leftists throwing out smug platitudes and talking points while an audience of trained seals claps like idiots.

In protest, one of the other left-wing panelists backed out, and made a big deal of virtue-signaling his reasons for doing so.

“He has ample venues to spew his hateful diatribes,” Scahill wrote. “Appearing on ‘Real Time’ will provide Yiannopoulos with a large, important platform to openly advocate his racist, anti-immigrant campaign.”

I call BS. The real reason alleged journalist Jeremy Scahill backed out is simply because he is afraid to go up against Milo; who is wittier, sharper, more appealing, and his better ideas on his side. Scahill knows he can’t win, so instead he fakes a “brave stand” and claims to be backing down out of principle. (As if leftists have principles.)

The whole attitude of the left on all matters has become “There is no need to debate. We’re right. Shut up.” This is not an attitude born of confidence, but of fear. They know their ideas are bad. They know their ideas can’t withstand honest debate. They know they can’t win. They don’t want the debate. They want an echo chamber.

People who think they can win a debate want to have the debate. People who don’t think they can win a debate want to shut it down before it happens. And if they are really afraid of losing a debate, they smash windows and set things on fire.

In related news, California won’t be sending any teams to the National Debate Tournament because it’s being held in a horrible red flyover state that isn’t as enlightened as Berkeley.

Left-wing protesters seeking to deny Milo Yiannopoulos and Martin Shkreli their right to free speech, and the right of their audience to peaceably assemble, demonstrated their superior debate skills by literally throwing feces and assaulting a cameraman.

The above video shows the exact moment Shkreli — who first achieved notoriety when he bought the rights to a lifesaving HIV drug and jacked up the price astronomically — was pelted in the face with feces (probably dogs’ droppings, not human excrement), with a protester calling him a “piece of sh*t.”

Protesters heckled any Milo’s supporters who were there and other prospective attendees with chants calling them “bigots,” “fascists,” and “racists.” Per an ABC 10 report, most of the protesters were not in fact UC Davis students. The protests began peacefully, but quickly escalated into violence as protesters jumped the barricades set up by campus police. The news station confirmed that one anti-Milo protester threw hot coffee at its camera crew and their equipment.

Also, Andrea Boccelli has bowed out of performing at Donald Trump’s inauguration because leftists have threatened to murder his family.
