Unhinged @ASU student wants to “slash the throats” of all Trump supporters.

Progressives are taking their minor setbacks as well as expected. It’s almost as if giving in and aceeding to every temper tantrum kiddies have since they were born had negative consequences which nobody could have foreseen.

I predict this will be a steady, even growing theme as the 2020 election approaches its inevitable.

Shouldn’t somebody be stitching these together to make a campaign video?

Washington Democrats Push Mandatory LGBTQ-Focused Sex Ed for Kindergartners

Parents in the state of Washington are fighting a Democrat bill that would mandate LGBTQ-focused sex ed for children, including kindergartners.

Democrats in the State House are pushing House Bill 2184, a measure that would mandate “comprehensive sexual health education” by the year 2022.

I’ve made this point dozens of times, but if you say there is nothing wrong with, say, sodomy, then it follows that there is nothing wrong with sodomy. And if there is nothing wrong with sodomy, there is nothing wrong with teaching it to kids. One follows from the other.

The alternative is to be brave and say that sodomy is bad. Go ahead. Your HR department will thank you for your honesty.

Why liberal white women pay a lot of money to learn over dinner how they’re racist

Freshly made pasta is drying on the wooden bannisters lining the hall of a beautiful home in Denver, Colorado. Fox-hunting photos decorate the walls in a room full of books. A fire is burning. And downstairs, a group of liberal white women have gathered around a long wooden table to admit how racist they are….

This is Race to Dinner. A white woman volunteers to host a dinner in her home for seven other white women — often strangers, perhaps acquaintances. (Each dinner costs $2,500, which can be covered by a generous host or divided among guests.) A frank discussion is led by co-founders Regina Jackson, who is black, and Saira Rao, who identifies as Indian American. They started Race to Dinner to challenge liberal white women to accept their racism, however subconscious. “If you did this in a conference room, they’d leave,” Rao says. “But wealthy white women have been taught never to leave the dinner table.”

Rao and Jackson believe white, liberal women are the most receptive audience because they are open to changing their behavior. They don’t bother with the 53% of white women who voted for Trump. White men, they feel, are similarly a lost cause. “White men are never going to change anything. If they were, they would have done it by now,” Jackson says.

Rao is the grifter who got her start on Twitter bashing whites in ways designed to be absurd. She’s easy to handle. But the idiot white women who flock to her? How do we straighten them out?

Repeal suffrage? Well, sure, that would work. But how to do the repeal? Since no one in any authority, or who loves their paycheck, has any guts or will, nothing can be done. Save a miracle—which I wouldn’t count on.

Colonialist Modernism Strikes Again (Via Wrath of Gnon)

The EU is planning to implement laws that make historic rebuilding illegal. “When new parts/elements are necessary, a project shall use contemporary design adding new value and/or use while respecting the existing ones.” EU is literally staffed by demons.

You can tell its art, or architecture, because it’s ugly.

‘My African name stopped me getting job opportunities’

About a third of FTSE 100 companies have no ethnic minority representation on their boards, a report has revealed.

The Parker Review Committee found 31 of the 83 firms which provided relevant information fell into this category.

Ms Abimbola said: “I found a number of barriers to entering the profession because I had an African name and am a black woman, without any doubt.”

She told the BBC: “I had to make over 100 phone calls to get a foot in the door.

“I have experienced bias and situations where, being a black woman, I was judged more harshly over other colleagues. You are more likely to be noticed and are far more likely to have negative judgements made about you if you are part of an ethnic minority.”

The opposite conclusion, and one just as justified by the data, is that black women aren’t as good at these types of jobs as other candidates.

Of course, my white name keeps me from getting good jobs in Japan. I demand equity!

Illinois University Drops Use of Standardized Tests in Admissions

DeKalb-based Northern Illinois University announced that it will stop using standardized tests in its undergraduate admissions process and will instead admit every applicant with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher.

Some evidence suggests the school’s decision may be related to the fact that it’s having a hard time attracting students….

The move is meant to “eliminate unnecessary and biased barriers,” NIU President Lisa Freeman said in a statement. The policy change “comes from our deep commitment to making a college education both accessible and equitable for a broad and diverse student population.”

Provost Beth Ingram added that a student’s grade point average would suffice in the future because it makes standardized testing scores “irrelevant.” She said the school was optimistic that the new policy would “encourage good students to focus on getting the most out of their high school classes.”

Bias, racism, etc. etc. It’s all so tiresome, as the meme goes.

Steve Sailer elsewhere wondered whether some of this wokeness is simulated in a calculated attempt to lure students, as the article semi-admitted. There’s a demographic deficit of students coming soon, and unless colleges can stuff seats with “refugees” and “migrants”, there’s going to be a lot of empty lecture halls. Some schools will be forced to close.

If, that is, standards are kept. Only choice to lower or eliminate them, and blame it on wokeness since blaming it on money sounds too mercenary.

What was that about the love of money being the root of all evil?

How will the liberal whites vote?

11 Thoughts

  1. And if there is nothing wrong with sodomy—there is nothing wrong with pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia, polygamy, polyandry or any other sexual orientation that someone is born with and did not choose is. No one chooses a sexual orientation and no one should be punished for acting one it. NO ONE. Them’s the rules, people.

    “I have experienced bias and situations where, being a black woman, I was judged more harshly over other colleagues. You are more likely to be noticed and are far more likely to have negative judgements made about you if you are part of an ethnic minority.” No, her sense of entitlement, victim wailing and obnoxious personality are why she is not getting a job. That’s it. Obnoxious unlikeable baby person. Waaa. Waaaa.

    Kissing his boot is NOT what I would do……He’s also not going to like what I put in his “donations” jar. Color has nothing to with it. Having a brain and not being some idiot dormat has everything to do with it. These are vile individuals, on the level of Hitler and Stalin. The Brown Shirts kissing his boot are just useful idiots. They will meet the same fate as all useful idiots. The Israelite School of Universal Practical Knowledge of is lying piece of crap and hateful of humanity. They can kiss a part of me not listable on here.

  2. 2500 dollar for a meal with pasta costing 2.50 at most? And people are surprised that white males do not fall for that kind of crap?

    American White Liberal women are the stupidest women on Earth.

  3. @ Sherri,

    “And if there is nothing wrong with sodomy—there is nothing wrong with pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia, polygamy, polyandry or any other sexual orientation that someone is born with and did not choose is.”

    The argument isn’t that there’s nothing wrong with something because people are ‘born that way’, it’s that there isn’t anything wrong with it according to a rational analysis of the consequences of it. This clearly does not apply to paedophilia, for example.

  4. High school GPA is the best predictor of student success (grades, retention, graduation) in college. Even then it’s no where near infallible (average graduation rate from first college of attendance in the US is 60%). Standardized tests add tiny improvement to the probability according to research by the College Board (creator of the SAT). Let schools admit on any criteria they wish … and live with the consequences. The best use of the SAT and ACT exams may be as indicators of insufficient preparation for college-level work that can direct students to remedial coursework. Whether a student has an aptitude for for it or not is another question altogether that these exams can’t address.

  5. There was this comic strip in my youth that had a pedestal inscribed with “TRVTH”. You got up on the pedestal and spoke, and then a bolt of lightning either did or did not strike you, depending. Hold on while I climb on up . . .

    I have decided that there are just a small handful of truths that explain 95% of human behavior. One truth: “It is easier for humans to accept failure given a plausible excuse and a dearth of consequences than it is to set forth on what is invariably an uphill road to success.”

    In other words, if you want someone to fail, validate their excuses. If you want someone to succeed, dismiss their excuses, even if they have some validity.

  6. Dear Ray,
    It’s a joke name. Why do people fall for this stuff? Maybe we could think up a new name for Ms. A bimbo la.

    Gladys Sunny? Sarah Reason? Iris Call? Fatima Aziz? Hugh Jim Bissel?

    This could go on for weeks! Or years. Ever since Jr. High …

  7. God creates our whole being, spirit, soul, and body, either male or female, and He has given us commandments as to how we are to express our sexuality. Like it or not, that’s it! God bless, C-Marie

  8. If a school really wants to boost its enrollment numbers, there was a community college in New Jersey that recruited vagrants by offering them a $700 biweekly stipend, signing them up for federally-guaranteed student loans, and not caring if they showed up for class.

  9. @Gary
    High school GPA means exactly nothing. In the DC public schools, one in three eight grade students will go on to graduate from high school. But only 40% of their high school graduates are able to read, and only 20% can perform addition without a calculator.

  10. The boot-kissing video…..
    Skyler and Seth? After the initial shock, which will be with me for quite a while I think…..I wondered what on Earth was going through their minds at that moment, as well as later that night laying in bed. What series of events led each to think that it was a good idea? Ever?
    I can’t begin to articulate the feelings and thought in MY head, that’s for sure.
