The Week In Doom — 16-Year-Olds Vote Edition

Item At least 49 people are killed and 48 injured in multiple Christchurch mosque massacres involving an Australian terrorist, 28, who live-streamed himself opening fire on worshippers – as a man in his 20s is charged with murder

That was an early headline. You know the story. This thread is as good as any about it. No, wait, that was about a bombing in the PI that killed 20 Catholics a few weeks back (you remember this, yes?). This one.

Item School has SEVENTEEN children changing gender as teacher says vulnerable pupils are being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex

An astonishing 17 pupils at a single British school are in the process of changing gender, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Most of the youngsters undergoing the transformation are autistic, according to a teacher there, who said vulnerable children with mental health problems were being ‘tricked’ into believing they are the wrong sex.

The whistleblower says few of the transgender children are suffering from gender dysphoria – the medical term for someone who feels they were born in the wrong body – but are just easily influenced, latching on to the mistaken belief they are the wrong sex as a way of coping with the problems caused by autism.

Earlier this year, The Mail on Sunday revealed that a third of youngsters referred to the NHS’s only gender identity clinic for children showed ‘moderate to severe autistic traits’.

It means that 150 autistic teenagers were given puberty blocker drugs which stop the body maturing.

This is a bit old, and was supposed to show earlier (I misplaced it), but it’s too interesting to ignore. This (and many, many other examples like it) proves tranny mania is yet another insanity fad. We’ve had many before. More on this coming.

Item Let 16-year-olds vote

My son follows the news closely; he watches John Oliver every week. He’s angry that his parents’ and grandparents’ generations have left him with a rapidly warming and unlivable world. He’s joined in demonstrations against gun violence. At his school he was involved in student-led efforts to change the name of Columbus Day and to promote trans rights. He thinks President Donald Trump is, as he puts it, “a racist, sexist homophobe.”

It’s a wonder where this poor boy could have learned that.

For all those reasons, he would like to vote in the 2020 elections. But he can’t. He’ll be 16 next November. In the US, 16-year-olds can get a license to pilot dangerous, giant hunks of metal at high speeds. But they can’t vote.

Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley is trying to change that. Last week she introduced an amendment to a voting rights bill to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. “From gun violence to climate change, our young people are organizing, mobilizing and calling us to action,” she argued. “They are at the forefront of social and legislative movements and have earned inclusion in our democracy.”

Yes, voting on matters on which they have no experience and are profoundly ignorant is morally and ethically equivalent to kids securing drivers’ licences.

“The argument for allowing young people to vote is the same as the argument for allowing anyone to vote.” No it isn’t. Because it would then follow the argument for allowing 16 yos to vote would be the same as allowing 12 yos to vote, and for allowing 5 yos to vote, and to allowing bewombed babies to vote.

Nancy Pelosi was able to overcome her brain freezes to say: ‘I myself, personally, I’m not speaking for my caucus, I myself have always been for lowering the voting age to 16.”

Equality is the mind killer.

Item CERN fires Strumia: the silence is deafening

After five months of “investigations” that weren’t investigating anything, the vicious, dishonest, and ideologically contaminated individuals who took over CERN have said “good-bye” to Alessandro Strumia, a top particle phenomenologist with 38k citations according to Google Scholar and 32k according to Inspire.

See e.g. the BBC, The Daily Mail, Gizmodo, Dorigo’s despicable defense of the Soviet tactics.

Why were his ties to CERN cut? In his quantitative, carefully researched October 2018 CERN talk at a conference dedicated to this very question – representation of men and women in particle physics and causes of patterns – he dared to say the truth. You may recall some TRF blog posts about Strumia since that time…

P.S.: Some committee at University of Pisa has decided that Strumia has violated a “code of conduct” of theirs that apparently says that one should be “nice” in some vague sense. It isn’t clear to me whether this conclusion has tangible consequences.

The effeminate have no sense of humor. Which is fine when they’re not in charge, frightening when they are. And they are.

Item University bosses order lecturers to stop using capital letters when setting assignments because it might upset snowflake students

University bosses have banned lecturers from using capital letters when assigning work to their students out of fear it might upset them.

The memo sent out to staff at Leed’s Trinity journalism department suggested that using uppercase letters may ‘scare them into failure’, reports the Express.

It also included some tips on how they should address their students from now on, such as writing in a friendly tone, steering clear of overbearing language and negative instructions…

The memo, obtained by the newspaper, says: ‘Despite our best attempts to explain assessment tasks, any lack of clarity can generate anxiety and even discourage students from attempting the assessment at all.’

It suggested that writing a word in caps could highlight the ‘difficulty’ of the assignment and therefore worry the students.

Capital punishment?

  1. In the US, 16-year-olds can get a license to pilot dangerous, giant hunks of metal at high speeds. But they can’t vote.

    If a 16-year-old can complete the application process, the training, and the testing for voting that is equivalent to acquiring a pilot’s license, I might consider letting him vote. On the one condition that should he vote for an idiot politician, he suffer the same fate as failing to maintain sufficient lift in an airplane.

    If this quote is referring to automobile licenses, then I suggest raising that age to 18 and demanding more rigorous training than occurs now.

  2. In the US, 16-year-olds can get a license to pilot dangerous, giant hunks of metal at high speeds. But they can’t vote.

    She will introduce legislation raising the age for a driver’s license, right?

  3. “drivers’ licences.”
    Should that apostrophe be there? It’s possessive depicting lots of drivers but there’s already the S on the licenceS.
    So “driver’s licence” is plural.
    Driver’s licences are many documents.

    Only infantry soldiers need be allowed a vote at whatever age they sign up.

    Didn’t click the links. Briggs’ posts…
    Somebody had a busy time, by the look of that photograph.

    Planes are easy to fly.
    Elephants? not so much.

  4. In the early 1980s I worked on a US Army contract in Berlin and had to obtain an Army driver license and put Army license plates on my car. We had to take a lecture on driving in Germany prior to the driver test. The Germans had a very high automobile fatality rate and the GIs had a even higher fatality rate. At first I was shocked but finally figured out what was going on. The demographic that has the most automobile accidents is the 18-25 year old males. The average GI was about 22 years old, right in the middle of the demographic that has the most accidents. That’s why the GIs had such an awful fatality rate. No speed limit on the autobahn and lack of experience can be a lethal combination.

  5. Our Founding Fathers could never have anticipated the technological advances that, today, allow many people to stay stupid and live to be 80. When they set the voting age at 21, 21 year olds were generally responsible adults – or dead, as the life expectancy wasn’t much over 40. Now, we have emotional and intellectual infants surviving well into middle age – and voting! I’m sure the Founders would agree that the voting age should be around half the average life expectancy, just like it was in 1789.

    The minimum voting age should be at least 35.

  6. @Joseph, One thing about ‘life expectancy’ numbers is they are weirdly skewed due to many early deaths as children and, for women, in childbirth. But if one lived to 35 or so, once could probably expect to actually live quite long. Jefferson died at 83. Adams died at 90. Franklin died at 84. So your point is taken but it’s more about the early deaths due to childhood disease, not being ‘intellectual infants’.

    With one ‘small’ difference. IS is ‘officially’ the enemy of many countries, including those with mostly Muslim population. They don’t really hesitate to walk into a mosque and blow themselves up, either.
    I don’t hear of those ‘pure’ white (whatever the made-up term means to those genetically very very diverse individuals) supremacist nuts blowing up churches, as of yet.

    Usually, the public discourse morphs into a discussion of the type of caliber, bump-stocks, mental health, whatever. Never what it really is. He mentioned god, if I recall correctly, in some of his statements. How is that not religiously motivated terrorism? We all know that if he was shouting ‘God is great’ in Arabic, the media wouldn’t be discussing type of weapon, gun rights or so.
    When someone attacks a church in a country with a Muslim majority, the army/police teams of Turkey, Syria, Egypt don’t f..k with them. They take them out:

    Similar does not happen to our ‘special overly sensitive white supremacist snowflakes’. They get a comfy cell, all with cable channels, table tennis and comfy beds.

    This comes from someone way whiter than this Aussie degenerate.
