Whoever says that America is not a racist nation doesn’t realize that children are denied an opportunity to get an education on account of their race. Really, it’s true:
Cassandra McAfee’s eighth-grade daughter is zoned to attend Columbia High School in Huntsville next fall. When McAfee saw last week that Columbia made the state’s list of ‘failing’ schools, she immediately looked into a transfer.
The Alabama Accountability Act says that she can. The state law allows students to transfer out of ‘failing’ schools and into non-failing schools within the same school system.
But McAfee’s daughter won’t be eligible for transfer because she is white. Columbia is a majority-black school, and Huntsville is still under a decades-old desegregation court order that requires the district to consider race when granting school transfer requests.
“Because my daughter is white, she has to be held back in a failing school,” said McAfee. “She’s not being given the same opportunities as her black peers. I don’t want my kid stuck in a school that’s not going to help her thrive or move forward. These next few years are vital because that will determine where she goes to college.”
What Mrs. McAfee is forgetting is that her daughter is not an individual, but merely a faceless representative of the white race whose aspirations must be sacrificed so as to mandate the integration ideals of liberal social engineers.
America is racist all right: against the core, majority population.
It makes perfect sense when you consider that the objective of leftist politics is to impose equality. That entails holding people down to the lowest common denominator.
Mrs. McAfee’s daughter has been denied the same opportunities granted her black peers because, due to her race, she is considered more likely to make good use of those opportunities.
Imagine a housing project in the South Bronx after welfare payments have been shut off because there is no one left to pay for them. That is the future of the human race if equality is achieved.
Over and over and over and over and over and over again Obama and his mouthpieces tell us that his scandal-plagued administration was scandal free. It is widely believed among oligarchical collectivists that as Lenin said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” However, the strategy fails when there are other people out there telling the real truth:
Space does not permit a compendium of Obama’s many scandals here. Earlier this month, Grabien helpfully listed the top 730 Obama Administration scandals, gaffes, and constitutionally questionable power grabs. At a glance, it doesn’t appear to include some of his truly egregious last minute misdeeds (e.g., commuting the sentences of traitor Bradley Manning and unrepentant terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera, gutting the Fourth Amendment); hopefully it will be updated so that it can serve as definitive documentation of Obama’s legacy.
Pennsylvania’s Swarthmore College is offering a religion class this semester titled, “Is God a White Supremacist?”
The course explores how religion represents race, with a particular focus on “the interpretive practices that are foundational to the process of ‘whiteness-making’ and the construction of white identity,” the spring 2017 catalog says.
The course description references “white supremacist ‘Christian identity’ churches” and “transnational whiteness.”
You may want to study religion, but what you will be taught is cultural Marxism. Regardless of the subject, everything that isn’t about extolling perverted sex is about race. If you object, then you are a racist and must close your mouth.
The moonbattery gushing from the Washington Post like smelly filth from a burst sewer main can be almost insufferable. But sometimes the paper redeems itself — for example, by looking back on the misbegotten Administration of Hope & Change by listing the Moonbat Messiah’s 10 biggest lies, all of which earned Four Pinocchios:
This should get your morning off to a cheerful start:
There were tears on the faces of some White House aides on Tuesday as press secretary Josh Earnest appeared in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room for his final press briefing — his 354th as press secretary, Earnest said.
Nothing sets a jovial mood like moonbats in tears.
Democrats love democracy — until they lose. At that point some are ready to chuck it out the window in favor of something very different. Here HuffPo moonbat Alex Mohajer barks that the presidency should be taken from the winner of the election and given to the loser, in deference to his personal preferences:
Remember when the mildly embarrassing leaked emails that are now hyped as Russian election hacking were dismissed by liberals as a “nothingburger”? Now they are grounds to discard our democratic republican form of government.
Trump’s election produced an explosion of hate hoaxes, driven largely by the “mainstream” media’s aggressive encouragement. But the hate hoax epidemic extends beyond America’s borders:
A Facebook page used to highlight claimed racist attacks in Austria which claimed a 14-year-old Muslim girl had been attacked and thrown onto a railway track has been called out after police said the story is fiction.
‘Racist Attacks and Discrimination in Austria’, which claims to record and document cases of racist attacks in Austria, posted “14-year old Sinem, was pushed by an unknown person on the tracks at the Vienna 1190 Krottenbachgasse and narrowly escaped death!” The author blamed Austrian Foreign Affairs and Integration Minister Sebastian Kurz for the violence after he agreed with a headscarf ban for public workers.
According to her complaint to the police, Sinem was called a terrorist by several women who then threw her on the tracks, nearly killing her.
However, new evidence from police has suggested that the entire story had been fabricated by the 14-year-old, Austria’s Kronen Zeitungreports.
Once again, a hate hoaxer is done in by video:
After police examined CCTV footage of the train station at the time the girl said the attack took place, they found nothing to corroborate her story. No incidents had occurred at the train station and the girl could be seen in the footage getting on a train with her friend.
The police say they do not know why the girl had lied…
If they really don’t, they need to read up on hate hoaxes. Even including terrorism, the ability to dupe the gullible into seeing them as victims is the most potent weapon Muslims have — until they achieve a majority; that’s when the charades end and the eradication of non-Muslims begins.
On Jan. 3, outgoing Attorney General Loretta Lynch secretly signed an order directing the National Security Agency — America’s 60,000-person-strong domestic spying apparatus — to make available raw spying data to all other federal intelligence agencies, which then can pass it on to their counterparts in foreign countries and in the 50 states upon request. …
So President Barack Obama, in the death throes of his time in the White House, has delivered perhaps his harshest blow to constitutional freedom by permitting his attorney general to circumvent the Fourth Amendment, thereby enabling people in law enforcement to get whatever they want about whomever they wish without a showing of probable cause of crime as the Fourth Amendment requires. That amendment expressly forbids the use of general warrants — search where you wish and seize what you find — and they had never been a lawful tool of law enforcement until Lynch’s order.
We’ll see if Trump reverses this. I wouldn’t hold my breath.
As the last days of this debacle wind down, Obama has been delivering his final kicks to our teeth — and to our bank accounts:
Obama’s State Department, with just hours to go until it is overhauled by the incoming administration, announced Tuesday a half-a-billion-dollar contribution to the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund.
“The Green Climate Fund is a critical tool that helps catalyze billions of dollars in public and private investment in countries dealing not only with the challenges of climate change, but the immense economic opportunities that are embedded in the transition to a lower carbon economy,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said at a Tuesday press briefing, according to the Washington Post.
That is, our money was thrown at other countries, in the futile hope that they will use it to improve the weather.
Converting the money into $1 bills, piling it up in a mound several stories high, and lighting it on fire would have been a vastly better use of it. That might have opened a few eyes to a far more serious threat than the ever-changing climate — our ever-growing and ever more wasteful government.
Obama had already thrown another $500 million at this foolish fund, and had pledged a total of $3 billion. Wasting money is easy when it is other people slaving away to create the wealth it represents.
If Trump puts a stop to this insanity as promised, that alone will make him a vast improvement on Obama.
Civilian control of the military is a prerequisite of a free society. Unfortunately, when moonbats prevail among those civilians, and we end up with people like Obama in charge, it can lead to lunacy like this:
The Department of Defense is currently in the market for “biodegradable composites with embedded seeds for training ammunition,” according to a proposal solicitation from the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) agency, a government program that links small businesses with federal programs. Motherboard, which first noticed the solicitation, notes it sounds like an idea for a bad Banksy painting.
Like this one, for example:
Here is why biodegradable bullets with embedded seeds are a military necessity:
The SBIR post notes that the U.S. army manufactures and consumes “hundreds of thousands of training rounds” that are fired into the air without any clear plan for ensuing discovery and elimination of the materials left over. As a result, projectiles, cartridge cases, and sabot petals end up embedded in the ground, sometimes several feet under.
This is offensive to the environment and “might have the potential [to] corrode and pollute the soil and nearby water.”
Given these potentially harmful consequences, which have been apparently overlooked thus far, the proposition of naturally eroding army training waste products makes sense. But the added component of germinating plants (that grow from seeds created in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory) seems a little excessive, albeit totally public relations-friendly.
Excessive? How could you ever love the planet too much?
Meanwhile, the Russians, Chinese, and even Iranians are feverishly working on serious technology to help them prevail in armed conflicts.
The hippies are now in charge of procuring ammunition.
Through the power of socialism, Venezuela has been creating large numbers of millionaires. However, being a millionaire in Venezuela is about as meaningful as the government’s collectivist rhetoric.
Amid rampant inflation, widespread shortages of everything from toilet paper to medicine and a failing economy, the Venezuelan government recently introduced three new bank notes into the market ranging from 500 to 20,000 bolivars.
You could easily carry a million bolivars in your wallet. It would be the equivalent of $300.
“That won’t get you very far,” Chris Sabatini, a professor at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, told FoxNews.com. “It’s like the government has almost given up. They are just adding zeros to the end of these bills and they don’t mean anything.”
Socialists often give up on presiding over functional economies. However, they never give up on what socialism is actually about — power. Hugo Chavez’s successor Nicolas Maduro isn’t going anywhere until he is dragged out of the Presidential Palace, hopefully feet first.
Democrats have been exploiting cabinet confirmations as an opportunity to showcase their own moonbattery, none more disgustingly than the exceedingly wealthycommunist Senator many Democrats wish were the incoming President, Bernie Sanders.
Like a true leftist, Sanders despises America and expects others to congratulate him for it. While questioning HHS nominee Tom Price, the piece of work coughed up this:
“No, we’re not a compassionate society in terms of our relationship to poor and working people. Our record is worse than virtually any other country on earth. We have the highest rate of childhood poverty than any other major country on earth and half of our senior, older workers have nothing set aside for retirement. So I don’t think compared to other countries we are particularly compassionate.”
Actually, America is the most generous country in the world. But to leftists, voluntary generosity doesn’t count; only wealth redistribution imposed by the government on a coercive basis matters. That is, Sanders et al. despise actual generosity; what they want is slavery.
You can be fairly sure the Constitution faces a threatening environment when students are arrested for passing it out on a college campus. This fate befell three conservatives who were recruiting for Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) at Kellogg Community College in Battle Creek, Michigan.
The alleged evildoers are:
Nathan Berning, a Stanford student and employee of the Leadership Institute; Isaac Edikauskas, vice president of Michigan State YAL; and Shelly Gregoire, president of Kellogg YAL.
At first Drew Hutchinson, KCC’s Manager of Student Life, told them they had to stop trying to engage students in conversation because this could “obstruct the student’s ability to get an education.”
You have to wonder what they mean by education, if learning about the Constitution obstructs it.
Edikauskas then asked a student walking by if he “likes freedom and liberty.” The student replied, “sure” and stopped to talk to Edikauskas.
Hutchinson, however, declared that this action broke the Student Code of Conduct because the student was on their way to “educational places,” and the question, “Do you like freedom and liberty?” was too “provocative.”
He should have asked something that is considered uncontroversial by college educrats, like “Don’t you agree that America is a racist abomination that ought to be destroyed?”
Not long afterward, the campus police arrived. The activists were told they were “violating the school structure,” that getting arrested would put their college careers in jeopardy, and finally that if they didn’t leave they would be dragged off to jail for trespassing — which is what then happened.
This time the thought police are getting some pushback:
The Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal organization that advocates for constitutional rights and religious liberty, has filed a lawsuit against KCC alleging that the actions of administrators and campus police officers violated the First and Fourteenth Amendments.
Kudos to Berning, Edikauskas, and Gregoire for standing their ground.
Ironically, Hutchinson’s Student Life claims that its mission is to “promote a positive college experience by providing programs rooted in diversity, education, leadership, service and social interaction.” Evidently diversity does not apply to thought, and social interaction is frowned upon when it entails students telling each other what their professors are probably not telling them regarding liberty and the meaning of America.
Government school efforts to indoctrinate and corrupt innocent children have gone into overdrive:
Children attending middle schools in the Cherry Creek School District in suburban Denver, CO are now being given access to extremely graphic sexual and homosexual pornography, material encouraging them to become sexually and homosexually active, descriptions of “sex toys,” and much more.
Moreover, parents at the Fox Ridge Middle School in that district who have complained and protested have been rebuked, intimidated, and even threatened by school officials – and ignored by elected school board members.
It’s not as if the educrats responsible are too kooky to know they are doing wrong. See how they attempt to hide their crimes against decency from the children’s parents:
The children are given access to this depraved material through special Internet portals set up for the district’s middle schools. (Other portals have also been set up for the high schools.) These ostensibly include regular library material and legitimate health knowledge, science, and similar topics. However, children are given one password, and their parents are given a different password. The material is omitted from the parents’ accounts and is only available through the childrens’ accounts.
Mixed in with pornographic materials are “a range of extremely left-wing political articles.” Those responsible may be attempting to condition adolescents by causing them to associate leftism with the dopamine release set off by porn — a sort of Clockwork Orange experiment in reverse.
To view the depravity that serves as educational materials in public schools, follow the links from Mass Resistance. An example that is not too obscene to reproduce here:
Inauguration festivities really will get colorful if this catches on among moonbats:
A man was burned Tuesday night after apparently setting himself on fire in the street outside the Trump Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, according to a public safety source with knowledge of the incident.
The 45-year-old Californian used a lighter and accelerant. As for his motive,
a construction worker in the area said he saw a man surrounded by flames, uttering the name of President-elect Trump in what appeared to be an angry manner.
Looks like he wasn’t quite angry enough to go through with it:
The man was taken to a hospital with what were described as third-degree burns on about 10 percent of his body.
