Get ‘Em While They’re Young

A schoolteacher in Georgia gave her sixth graders a lesson and quiz in sexual identity.

The middle school’s health teacher assigned a quiz that defined 10 “sexual identity” terms, such as gay, lesbian, and transgender. The quiz required the sixth graders to identify and differentiate between various sexual orientations and identities, FOX 5 Atlanta reported.

This was a health class. Perhaps, she should have asked students to define “barebacker,” “versatile,” and “power bottom.”

There’s something just plain creepy about adults who get off on teaching twelve year olds about sex. But aside from that, why even spend time and resources teaching this? Every hour a teacher spends teaching, “there are 86 genders, and they are all valid, can you name them all (extra credit if you identify as more than one)” is an hour not spent teaching math, science, or history. You can bet Chinese schoolchildren don’t spend class time learning “to identify and differentiate between various sexual orientations and identities.”

The educational value of this is nil, but it makes teachers feel like good little Social Justice Warriors to devote class time to trendy social issues instead of practical learning.

Next week, she’ll be teaching how to kneel for the National Anthem while avoiding knee injuries.

Workers Required to Attend Party Meetings; Document Party Loyalty

Resident Advisors at Virginia Tech have been ordered by their Party Superiors to attend LGBTQQIP2SAA meetings and document their attendance, or be denounced as counter-revolutionaries.

At a recent staff meeting, the RA’s supervisor told them that they were required to attend an LGBTQ+ event during October, as it is “LGBTQ+ history month.” They must choose an event to attend, invite their residents to come with them, stay for the entirety of the event, and take a picture to document their attendance.

If someone refuses to attend an event, disciplinary action should be expected, the RA told Campus Reform. Such disciplinary action usually includes verbal and written warnings and possible termination.

ACLU Speaker Shut Down by Black Lives Militants

The Left is eating itself.

Students affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement crashed an event at the College of William & Mary, rushed the stage, and prevented the invited guest—the American Civil Liberties Union’s Claire Gastañaga, a W & M alum—from speaking.

Ironically, Gastañaga had intended to speak on the subject, “Students and the First Amendment.”

The disruption was livestreamed on BLM at W&M’s Facebook page. Students took to the stage just a few moments after Gastañaga began her remarks. At first, she attempted to spin the demonstration as a welcome example of the kind of thing she had come to campus to discuss, commenting “Good, I like this,” as they lined up and raised their signs. “I’m going to talk to you about knowing your rights, and protests and demonstrations, which this illustrates very well. Then I’m going to respond to questions from the moderators, and then questions from the audience.”

It was the last remark she was able to make before protesters drowned her out with cries of, “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too.” They also chanted, “the oppressed are not impressed,” “shame, shame, shame, shame,” (an ode to the Faith Militant’s treatment of Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, though why anyone would want to be associated with the religious fanatics in that particular conflict is beyond me), “blood on your hands,” “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution,” and, uh, “liberalism is white supremacy.”

The Revolution will not uphold the Constitution?

I was told that #BlackLivesMatter were patriotic Americans standing up (well actually kneeling) in the cause of equal rights and fair treatment for all Americans.

Perhaps I was misinformed.

Sacramento’s Rock-Stupid Plan to Subsidize Gangsters

Posted by V the K at 9:50 am - September 18, 2017.
Filed under: Liberalism Run Amok

By now you’ve heard about the city of Sacramento’s $1.5M scheme to pay gang-bangers not to commit violence. But if you dig into the details of the scheme, it’s actually even worse.

The report and funding agreement before the council indicate that the program, the “Peacemaker Fellowship,” is to be implemented by a group called Advance Peace. It proposes to reduce gang violence through “transformational opportunities to young adults identified as most likely to be” involved in “gun violence” and by ensuring “greater connectivity to culturally competent human, social, and economic opportunities” for these individuals. The details, as fleshed out during the council meeting, were that participants will be selected from a small group of gang members thought to be behind the “re-cyclical and retaliatory” gun crimes in the community. Among other things, program participants will be required to identify and commit to “LifeMAP goals” (academic aspirations, or more basic things like “getting a driver’s license or improving their relationship with their parents or their kids”). As part of “incentivizing achievement,” the program’s “touchpoints” include “Transformative Travel” and cash stipends for participants. The cost associated with each participant tops out at an estimated $30,000.

If that sounds like a load of feelgood progressive huggy-buggy crap and a payoff to a Democrat-connected organization — it’s because that is exactly what it is. There are no metrics for measuring the success of the program, and no set dates for anything other than the city making payments, which are built-in and front-loaded.

It is an article of faith on the progressive left that the worst thing society can do to a criminal is put him in jail.

Aside from which, the city’s scheme apparently has profiled individuals in the community they think are most likely to commit violence with guns. So, apparently, profiling is bad when police are doing it to stop gang-bangers from committing violence, but perfectly OK when politicians want to give taxpayer money to gang-bangers.

This Perfect World

“So blue, I can’t begin to say”.

  • USC suspended a male student for an incident that likely never happened.

    He and girlfriend were shrieking in an alley, one night. They say it was horseplay. Sleeping “witnesses” weren’t sure, and talked about it. One of the sleepy-witnesses’ roommate’s fathers (!) reported it as a serious incident. Based on that distant hearsay report, the male student was suspended. A camera did record whatever happened, and USC refuses to release the recording. While student and girlfriend want it released, saying it exonerates him. When the girlfriend tweeted about that, USC threatened her, “Don’t ever tweet anything like that again”. As Ashe Schow puts it:

    The school believed that she was a battered girlfriend, too afraid of her boyfriend to admit what he had done. Why, then, did they retaliate and threaten her? The school was so sure she was a victim, it treated her like garbage…

  • Germany shuts down a left-wing web site, Germany’s version of Antifa.

    My feelings are mixed. To the extent that the site incited violence (and it probably did), the action is probably justified. But it shows how the State’s power can be used against anyone, Left or Right, at the State’s whim.

  • Google has stepped up its crackdown on “extremist” YouTube videos.

    Problem: The restrictions on viewing, search and sharing are themselves extreme – and are almost certain to be applied unjustly to reasonable Trump supporters, libertarians and/or conservatives. Because Google has already been doing some restrictions and even the wonderful Diamond and Silk were hit by those.

Pepper Balls Speaks

I found this video message, from the Alt Left’s very own Pepper Balls, pretty funny. (CORRECTION – It’s just satire.)

UPDATE: Pepper Balls himself stated it’s not him. It’s still funny. 🙂 What really happened is also funny.

UPDATE: Here is the difference between activism and the Alt Left.

MLK compared to Antifa; love non-violence and open face, compared to hate violence and masks

Controlled Media watch

  • Congress readies a bizarre resolution against WikiLeaks.

    It is the sense of Congress that WikiLeaks and the senior leadership of WikiLeaks resemble a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such a service by the United States.

    “Resemble”? The resolution is saying that if you *look like* anything Congress doesn’t appreciate, they can strip your First Amendment protections and take the U.S. to war with you.

    WikiLeaks, remember, is non-profit journalist service. They publish leaks. The traditional, First Amendment approach is that *the leaker* commits a crime and can be punished, but *the journalist or publisher* does not. Someone wants an exception, it seems, for super-effective journalists whom the government can’t control.

    More from Julian Assange, here.

  • CNN endorses the undercover journalism of Project Veritas. Indirectly.

    A journalist snowed Breitbart employees by pretending to be someone they would trust. The journalist gave the story to CNN, who gladly reported it. Very embarrassing. But that is undercover “sting” journalism, like what James O’Keefe and Project Veritas do, and CNN and many lefties fulminate indignantly about them. Can you spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e-s? 🙂

  • Google and Apple ban Gab (a Twitter competitor), censoring what you can do with your own phone.

    “Whatever is permissible under the First Amendment is what Gab allows onto its site.”

    …Gab’s Android app was available through Google’s app store until yesterday, when Google banned it, citing violations of its hate-speech policy

    While Android users can install unapproved apps, it’s a cumbersome process…

    It’s difficult to credit Gab as a white-supremacist site when its cofounder is a Turkish Kurd and Muslim…who says “I’ve never supported Trump for a minute in my entire life”…

    Google is being plain evil. They’re saying *you can’t use a non-Google app to say anything to anybody that Google would not like*. What’s next, Google censoring your private emails? Remember, email is a phone app.

  • Breitbart has more on Google’s other steps to punish conservative speech.

Flashback: When Facebook ex-employees admitted that Facebook routinely censors conservative news from their “Trending” section. Even if it was really trending.

On the Confederate monuments: Be careful what you ask for

The U.S. Civil War killed or maimed huge numbers of people – as a proportion of how many people were alive, then. I’m told that, for two generations after the war, you would walk down the street in almost any U.S. city and see veterans missing an arm or leg, or women who were veterans’ widows.

After the war, the point of statues on both sides was to remember the sacrifice of those who had fallen. Both sides were American. Both fought because they thought they had a point.

The war was not about slavery until 1863 (well into it). The South fought to preserve the States against an encroaching central government. They lost – only after President Lincoln claimed a moral high ground, by finally making it a war to end the evil of slavery. Before then, in 1861 and 1862, the constitutional issues were primary and the South had a point. In short, they were not evil for fighting. They were Americans, fighting from a place of moral conviction (however mistaken).

The point of the Confederate monuments is to remember all that. The people whom you oppose so deeply are fellow Americans and they often (not always) come from a place of moral conviction (however mistaken).

It follows that the real effect of removing the Confederate monuments is to forget all that. Removal makes a statement that only one side matters: Your side, membership in which gives you the right to spit upon, and eventually to erase, your fellow Americans.

Whether a particular city or college or State should keep monument X is a local issue, that I won’t have an opinion on. But the overall push to remove the Confederate monuments is disturbing: it’s a push for ignorance and incivility. Forgetting the past, that’s the ignorance. And having only one side matter (yours) – that’s the incivility.

So, lefties: Be careful what you ask for. I will leave you with Charles Barkley’s perspective:

More Google updates

Just to round out today’s earlier post, we also have new interviews in Breitbart’s Rebels of Google series.

UPDATE – Everyone we don’t like is Raaaaaaaaaysist: CNN falsely smears the planned March on Google as a “White Nationalist”, “Alt Right” event.

To begin with, the organizers of March on Google are known to be pro-peace, anti-racist and anti-Alt Right. But they also say it pointedly, at this link.

Code of Conduct for March on Google

The March on Google condemns and disavows violence, hatred, and bigotry and all groups that espouse it such as White Nationalists, KKK, Antifa, and NeoNazis.
We will not use messages that are designed to incite anger, hate, or violence.
We will respect the law and the police and cooperate in all matters.
Any violation of these tenets will not be tolerated.
Is this an “Alt-Right” event? The answer is no. This is an event for First Amendment supporters from across the country, from all backgrounds, ethnicity, and walks of life.

CNN could have checked it easily. Instead, CNN published a complete falsehood – once again attempting to smear anyone who challenges them, or Google or the hard Left, as racists.

Hey, lefties: This is why Trump won (be that good or bad). This is why rational, honest people reject and despise the Left.

UPDATE: Peaceful March on Google is postponed, due to Alt Left terrorist threats following the CNN slanders.

The Faustian Bargain of the left is the promise of unlimited sexual license without judgment or consequences in exchange for your complete submission to their social, ideological, political, and economic agenda. And the NY Times pretty much admits that I am totally 100% right about that.

The pogroms, the gulags, the bread lines, the all-powerful police state … yeah, all that mind of sucked. But the sex was fantastic. They prove it by… interviewing a handful of Communist women who claim sex was better under Communism.

The author – a feminist university professor – hails authoritarian Communism for its ability to impose social change without the consent of the governed.

Those comrades’ insistence on government intervention may seem heavy-handed to our postmodern sensibilities, but sometimes necessary social change — which soon comes to be seen as the natural order of things — needs an emancipation proclamation from above.

Google will get worse, before it gets better

There’s a lot in the news about North Korea, but I haven’t the heart to write about that, it’s too depressing. The U.S. should have taken care of that problem 20 years ago.

So, back on Google. First, Stefan Molyneux interviews James Damore. He’s a bit snow-flakey. Molyneux almost has to hold his hand. Seriously, how could the SJWs feel so threatened?

Second, by now you’ve seen Breitbart’s Rebels of Google interviews with dissenters to Google’s left-wing, Social Justice Warrior culture. Of course you have to take it with a grain of salt; these are disgruntled former employees. Nonetheless, many details ring true to those who have worked in Silicon Valley. Put it this way, statements of Google execs and SJWs will tell us one side of the story; Rebels of Google gives us the other.

I’m not sure what goes on at Google exactly, but it sounds like they have a culture of SJW discussions (probably on Google Plus group chat and/or email) that employees can’t escape. I picture an employee signing on to discuss a work-related problem, for example, and then being spammed with HR “diversity” announcements, or political sniping injected by the SJWs into every discussion “just because”.

Anyway, here are the interview bits that jumped out at me: (more…)

They’re coming for the smart people

I knew this day would come. In trying to make successful people feel guilty, Social Justice Warriors are ready to take us to full-on _Idiocracy_ or _Harrison Bergeron_. The SJW columnist Dan Williams says:

There are many kinds of privilege besides white privilege: cognitive privilege, for example. We now know that intelligence is not something we have significant control over but is something we are born with… below a certain threshold of intelligence, there are fewer and fewer opportunities… Thus, the accident of having been born smart enough to be able to be successful is a great benefit that you did absolutely nothing to earn. Consequently, you have nothing to be proud of for being smart.

His claims are contrary to science. There are plenty of things you can do, to enhance your intelligence or to damage it. For example, some studies show that frequent marijuana use can permanently damage your memory, concentration, and overall IQ. Whereas those things can be preserved or enhanced by healthy lifestyle, or some forms of education or problem-solving. So yes, your intelligence is something you “have significant control over”, long-term.

Williams’ claims are also contrary to my life experience. Throughout my life, I have consciously worked long and hard at becoming smarter and doing better things than I would have otherwise. It was no accident. It used to be called “self-improvement”.

But I suppose that, if you’re a modern-day lazy pot-smoking type of “smart” person – someone who was born talented and has indeed drifted along, doing little or nothing to forge your unique self, and falling into a six-figure salary all the same – then Williams’ comments might make sense to you. You would be too ignorant to know better. And you would need the SJW Religion for its cheap grace, or as a way to live with yourself.

From the comments: Heliotrope highlights another significant quote from Williams’ piece:

Any of us could have been born the unluckiest person on the planet, which, by definition, picks out precisely one person. But we all have the privilege of not being that person. We are all privileged by comparison.

This highlights the religious aspect of SJW-ism.

  • “Privilege” is the new Original Sin, the guilt-from-birth that no one escapes (except Williams’ hypothetical “unluckiest person born”, maybe).
  • PC “Social Consciousness” is the new Redemption (the cheap grace that I mentioned).
  • Revolution would be the (longed-for) Apocalypse or Last Judgment.
  • and Social Justice, the (unattainable) New Jerusalem or Kingdom of Heaven.

If UK/Europe are doomed, this is why

Cross The Line in the UK is a Twitter ad campaign to help people “spot the signs of right wing extremism”. Signs such as being young, doing political actions, and going to the gym:

Here’s the thing: Young, politically-involved gym-goers may vote for Brexit (gasp!), but they commit no terrorist attacks, in the UK or elsewhere. Unless they’re Muslim. If they’re Muslim, they do it all the time, killing and maiming people.

Does the UK have ad campaigns to help people spot the signs of Islamic extremism?

A very odd-looking hyphenated … gentleman (?) I guess… thinks straight people should not be welcome in gay bars.

I don’t mind LGBT women being in gay bars but I don’t think straight folks of any gender should go without an invite.

wish straight cis folks pissed that some gays don’t think they should go to gay clubs would just admit they don’t respect gay men’s spaces

gay bars aren’t about you, straighty

I know that the New Segregation is a big thing on the left. The University of Minnesota is setting up segregated spaces for black folk, because they just want to keep to their own kind, apparently.

But honestly, I really could not care less about the gay bar thing. And as for hyphenated guy, it just means there’s more people to reject him when he goes out. As for straight girls going to gay bars just so they can post selfies of themselves dancing at a gay bar… well, that’s just part and parcel of being a social leftist. A very large number of the people in your movement are  dimwitted women who like to show off their “tolerance and inclusiveness.” London has to just accept terrorists, you just have to accept airhead white women.

If you want to be around smart women who respect your space, become a conservative.

ADL jumps the shark, becomes a Defamation League

The Anti-Defamation League published an article, From Alt Right to Alt Lite: Naming the Hate. Just one problem: The article is a disgrace. It may target some actual racists, but along the way, it smears several citizen-journalists who merely challenge the Left, believe in the West or in Christianity, and/or support President Trump.

Presumbably to avoid libel lawsuits, the ADL tries to distinguish between “Alt Right” and “Alt Lite”. It says “Alt Right” is about “overt racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, misogyny, and anti-Muslim bigotry”; while “Alt Lite” would only be about the “misogyny and xenophobia” part. But the false guilt-by-association is still there. And even the lesser charge of “misogyny and xenophobia” is a smear on some fine and ever-improving journalists.

Of the ADL’s “Alt Lite” list, I know the work of three fairly well, and none of them deserve the ADL’s smear-labeling: Jack Posobiec, Mike Cernovich, Milo Yiannopoulis.

If the ADL is zero-for-three on those whose work I do know, they are probably wrong on the others whom they listed in the “Alt Lite” section. (Note: I’m not defending anyone in the “Alt Right” section, none of whose work I know at all, except perhaps for Nathan Damigo whose organization I denounced, here.)

To take one example, Jack Posobiec is fluent in at least 2 foreign languages (Mandarin and Polish are the ones that I’ve seen him speak), and here he is at Auschwitz with his girlfriend, praying for the Holocaust victims:

Jack Posobiec and girlfriend at Auschwitz, praying for the victims

So much for his supposed “misogyny and xenophobia”. Which, I can say, are not in his work either – except that he just happens to be a reasonable and articulate Trump supporter, pro-Israel Christian, and opponent of the Left.

It seems the Anti-Defamation League has itself become a hate group. They would rather defame good people than refute the statements or ideas that they disagree with. It’s sad to see a once-important organization fall so low.

Obamacrats Unleash Their Criminal Base

I cannot do justice to this post by quoting any of it. You’ll have to read the whole thing. But the long and the short of it is, the Obama Justice Department and Blue State Democrats pursued policies to keep criminals out of jail and release them to prey on law-abiding citizens.

(30) The end result of Democratic “reform” is that criminals now commit crimes with impunity, and people are too afraid to call the cops.

(31) There are no penalties for threatening witnesses and skipping your trial. Nobody comes looking for you.

(32) And if you get arrested, they immediately release you.

Just for one example, here are some of the things California reclassified from violent felonies to non-violent misdemeanors, all in an effort to keep criminals out of jail.

So, long story short, in California, you can beat up a child, or drug and rape someone and those are considered non-violent misdemeanors. But the cops will come down on you like a dumptruck full of bricks if you try and sell flowers in front of a school without a permit.

Instead of jailing criminals, Democrats have started the approach of politely asking urban thugs not to commit murder on certain weekends. I am not making this us.

Organizers aim to stop the shooting from Friday, Aug. 4, through Sunday, Aug. 6, with a unified and blunt message: “Nobody kill anybody.” Their message has been printed on T-shirts and flyers. They designed a website and held community meetings. More than 1,600 people visited their Facebook page.

A website and a Facebook page, they must be super cereal.

Next month’s ceasefire would prove successful if it deters a single shooting, (an organizer)said. And she figures the movement has already saved a life somewhere. “Somebody was plotting on this weekend,” she said. “Now they’re not going to do it because of a rumbling in their soul.”

Hey, who needs crime statistics when you have a community organizer who can sense the souls of gang-bangers.

One of the problems with leftist utopias is  that there tends to be a lot of human excrement on the streets and sidewalks. I don’t know why progressives love poop so much, they just do. The leftist city of Denver has moved to decriminalize public defecation because it was unfair to illegal immigrants to expect them to use a damn toilet. The problem is so bad in leftist San Francisco that there are apps to help people avoid stepping in the excrement that city’s leftist Government has encouraged. In Seattle, all they wanted to do was clean the human excrement off the sidewalks around a city courthouse.

This offended a Seattle city councilman because… I am not making this up … the use of pressure washers to clean human excrement from the sidewalk reminded him of fire hoses being turned on civil rights protesters in the 1950’s.

Seattle councilmember Larry Gossett isn’t a fan of one solution to power wash the feces from the sidewalks to tamp down on the smell. Power washing the sidewalks is too reminiscent of civil rights activists being hosed down, he said.

If that’s true why doesn’t he shut down the fire department? I’m sure fires can be put out with holistic healing, chanting, and hugging.

The area is also known for rampant crime, assaults, and drug abuse… right next to a courthouse.

Leftist utopia. A city that can’t keep sh-t off the public sidewalks, can’t stop assaults and robberies next to a courthouse, but has plenty of time and money to spend on rainbow crosswalks to feed the egos of one of the left’s targeted political demographics.

If a ten year old child wants to change its gender and begin taking a chemical cocktail of hormones and suppressors that will wreak havoc on its physiology, that’s just fine. In fact, that is a thing to be celebrated.

But it’s too “dangerous” for that same child to be alone in a Lego store?

An upstate New York mom has been arrested for an unspeakable crime. She allowed her 10-year-old child to shop alone at the Lego store in the local mall while she shopped in a different store.

Seriously. WTFF?

Also, according to Women’s magazine that features 9-10 monthly articles instructing women on how to provide sex to males, a pre-natal gender reveal party will scar it for life. This same magazine claims that a baby is nothing but a clump of cells until the magical passage through the birth canal makes it a person.

By the way, the governor of Oregon who used to lobby for the Abortion Industry, just signed a law mandating taxpayer-paid abortions anytime, anywhere, for any reason, at any stage in pregnancy.

BTW, uber-feminist Jill Filipovic lectures that people should stop having babies anyway; because of the Global Warmies.

And, the phrase “Ladies and Gentlemen” is now verboten on public announcements on the London Underground because it’s offensive to guess-which-group-of-hypersensitive-left-wing-people.

And still more: Feminist mom loathes men so much she is driving her son to suicide, and she doesn’t care.
