Progressive hypocrisy on display–with video!

Years ago when I chaired my academic department, a faculty woman came to my office in tears. She informed me that she desperately needed a raise. I asked why. She replied that she had to move. I asked why. Amidst the tears, she explained how the city had redistricted the schools and that her children would now be attending a mostly Black elementary school.

Now, keep in mind, that this woman was probably the most Liberal, Left, Progressive member of my faculty.  She was an outspoken proponent of “diversity,” hiring along gender and racial lines, etc. But here she was, crying, in my office, begging for a raise so that she could move to a new home in a district with a mostly White school population.

For her, “diversity” was wonderful, but only if it didn’t impact her.

About an hour later, our lone Black faculty member came to my office. He was upset. I asked why. He explained that he had overheard the woman whose office was next to his (that’s right, the woman who came to me asking for a raise) complaining about how here kids would have to go to a mostly Black school. He started in on this woman for her utter and blatant hypocrisy and explained that he’d never take her seriously again.

Anyone laboring under the delusion that New York City is a progressive bastion need look no further than the city’s school system, which remains among the most segregated in the country.

In an effort to fight that trend, which has only gotten worse thanks to gentrification, rising income and wealth inequality throughout the city’s five boroughs, schools on the Upper West Side—one of the wealthiest and whitest sections of Manhattan—are looking to adopt a plan that would require all local middle schools to reserve a quarter of their seats for students who score below grade level on state English and math tests.

The plan is designed to make Upper West Side schools more reflective of New York City’s diverse demographics, and make sure underprivileged students have access to the sorts of advantages and resources that the neighborhood’s well-funded schools can provide.

Well, that plan didn’t go over so well in a room full of wealthy white parents.

Local TV station Spectrum News NY1 captured footage of a contentious meeting during which rich, white Manhattanites shouted, ranted and complained about the perceived disadvantages their children would face.

Pro-Life is a form of White Supremacy!

These fools have it backwards. A disproportionate percentage of all babies aborted are, in fact, Black. If any group could be indirectly associated with White Supremacy, it would be the pro-Choice groups. They are the one’s pushing the aborting of Black babies.

As I’ve often said, if the Republicans were the one’s pushing a pro-choice agenda, one that results in an abortion rate for Blacks nearly three times their percentage of the population, what is usually termed “disparate impact,” the Democrats would be accusing the Republicans, rightly, of genocide.

  • A member of the pro-abortion club at the University of Minnesota-Duluth condemned the “pale faces” of the pro-life movement during an open mic event last week.
  • The student also framed the pro-life movement as one that upholds white supremacy, and urged attendees to “rise up and rip white supremacy from its roots.”

Imam! Go to Starbucks and go to hell!

Why? Is he supporting the Black boycott? Hell no! It’s because Starbucks supports the LGBT community! Allah is such a merciful  fellow. File under “religion of peace.”

A popular preacher is under fire on Twitter for saying Muslims who buy from Starbucks will go to hell.

In a 52-minute video uploaded by Islamic channel Fodamara TV on Youtube, Abdul Somad, the preacher in question, says that Muslims will be thrown into hell if they buy from Starbucks, as the coffee shop openly supports the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

He made the statement when answering a question from a member of the audience on whether Muslims are allowed to buy from a café that supports LGBT rights.

He said: “In the afterlife […] the angels will ask the [LGBT community], ‘How did [your community] grow so big?’  [The LGBT community] will respond, ‘Because of the donations [given to us]. ‘Who gave you the donations?’  ‘Those who are in heaven.'”

God will pull out those who are in heaven and throw them into hell for donating to Starbucks, he added.

And they wonder why public support for “higher” education is declining!

I strongly suspect that close to half, or more, of the population of Texas will think that this is absurd, not to mention a waste of money. But that will not stop Progressives from forging ahead, and then whining when their budgets get cut.

The Counseling and Mental Health Center at the University of Texas at Austin recently launched a new program to help male students “take control over their gender identity and develop a healthy sense of masculinity.”

Treating masculinity as if it were a mental health crisis, “MasculinUT” is organized by the school’s counseling staff and most recently organized a poster series encouraging students to develop a “healthy model of masculinity.”

The program is predicated on a critique of so-called “restrictive masculinity.” Men, the program argues, suffer when they are told to “act like a man” or when they are encouraged to fulfill traditional gender roles, such as being “successful” or “the breadwinner.”

Trump may attend embassy opening in Jerusalem!

If he does, it should be quite the scene. Quite the scene!

WASHINGTON — US President Donald Trump said Friday he would possibly travel to Israel next month for the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem.

Standing next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a White House press conference, Trump responded to a question from the Christian Broadcasting Network over who would attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

First Amendment rights only exist if what you say is Lefty Group-think!!!!

I previously posted about Randa Jarrar keeping her job because of a determination by Fresno State that she was exercising her first amendment rights.Jarrar verbally assaulted a dead former first lady. What did Card have the temerity to say?

“I strongly believe that reinforcing the current myth that individuals are likely to be damaged by exposure to expressions that they find offensive, and thus require pampering, is a disservice to our students and our profession,” he began.

OMG! There’s no place FOR HIM at the university! What about all that First Amendment crap Fresno State used to justify not taking action against Jarrar? Gone with the wind! In this country today, you have First Amendment rights as long as you say the proper things.

A former adjunct professor says Syracuse University told him he is no longer qualified to teach students after he challenged the response to a recent fraternity scandal by arguing that “coddling” students does them a disservice.

Randa Jarrar will keep her six-figure salary!

No surprise here. And I agree! Professors should be able to say what they think. My wish is that such allowances were distributed evenly between professors who say things from the Left and those that say things from the right.

In fact, I love seeing stories akin to the Randa Jarrar tale. While she will keep her job, and no doubt feel empowered to keep saying the horrible things she says, she, and other Lefties like her, through their actions will continue the process of the erosion of public support for higher education. While she will keep her $100k+ salary, her actions convince taxpayers across the country to no longer support higher education. In other words, in the long run the Jarrars of American academia are gutting their own establishment.

There’s an old saying that you don’t shit where you sleep. Too many Progressive professors have forgotten that old adage.

“After completing this process, we have concluded that Professor Jarrar did not violate any CSU or university policies and that she was acting in a private capacity and speaking about a public matter on her personal Twitter account,” he explained. “Her comments, although disgraceful, are protected free speech under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

“Additionally, although Professor Jarrar used tenure to defend her behavior, this private action is an issue of free speech and not related to her job or tenure,” Castro added. “Therefore, the university does not have justification to support taking any disciplinary action.”

Iranians gloat as their Houthi proxies fire missiles into Saudi Arabia

The idea that the Houthis are “domestically” manufacturing such missiles is a crock. They may actually do the final per-launch assembly, or something of like that, but they do not possess the means to manufacture the missiles themselves. But, of course, the truth has never been a hallmark of official Iranian statements.

Yemeni army forces, backed by allied fighters from Popular Committees, have fired at least eight domestically-manufactured ballistic missiles at a number of “economic and vital targets” in Saudi Arabia’s sou
