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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
