Brian Williams’ Condescending Arrogance Gets Him in Trouble

Disgraced propagandist Brian Williams struggles to control his massive ego even now:

Williams has been rebuked by MSNBC for being “patronizing” to the network’s biggest star, Rachel Maddow.

After Williams hijacked Maddow’s show to break the Syria missile news earlier this month, he turned to her live on air at the end of the segment and said, “Thanks for visiting tonight. Glad you were a part of our coverage.”

Madcow’s moonbat fans — ever on the lookout for sexist microaggressions from white males — exploded in rage. The brass isn’t happy either.

A source at the network said, “Not only did Brian go way over the top with his coverage of the missile strike, he then totally patronized Rachel by thanking her for ‘visiting’ her own show and being ‘a part’ of his ‘beautiful’ coverage! Has he not learned anything from ‘Misremember-gate’?”

Misremember-gate entailed Williams falling from his perch atop NBC Nightly News after he was caught telling tall tales about his experiences during the Iraq War. He wound up as a breaking news anchor at MSNBC, also hosting an 11 pm wrap-up show. It was that or work in the mailroom.

Sources said MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was furious with Williams’ disdainful treatment of Maddow. According to a source, “Phil gave Brian a very stern rebuke, telling him, ‘Don’t you ever do that again.’

Or what? He’ll get busted down to MSNBC? He already has been.

They ought to be patient with Lyin’ Brian. It can take decades to get all of the hot air out of an ego that has been inflated to the zeppelin dimensions seen in top network propagandists. Williams’ fellow fraud Dan Rather — whose career imploded back in 2004 when he was caught trying to sway an election with crudely forged documents — also seems to consider himself a person of importance to this day.

Bruce Jenner Becomes a Former Stepmother

Michael Brown cannot seem to get with the program regarding the subordination of language, biology, and accurate recollection of the past to political correctness:

As reported on Pink News, “Kim Kardashian hits out at ‘untruthful’ stepmother Caitlyn Jenner on Ellen.” Yes, “Kim Kardashian has lashed out her former stepmother Caitlyn Jenner.”

Well, here’s a breaking news alert. Bruce (or, Caitlyn) Jenner was not Kim Kardashian’s stepmother. Not ever. You can believe that Bruce Jenner is now a transwoman. You can decide to refer to him as “her.” You can even say that “Kim Kardashian’s former stepfather is now a transwoman named Caitlyn Jenner.” But don’t recreate the past and say that Bruce Jenner is Kim’s “former stepmother.”

Bruce was married to Kim’s mother, Kris, and Bruce was Kim’s stepfather. End of story, simple and clear.

What’s simple and clear is that Brown is a transphobic thought criminal who must be shamed into silence for being so insensitive as to insist that 2 + 2 = 4.

Colorado Abolishes Free Speech Zones

Some good may actually be coming of the recent fad among progressives of employing Naziesque mob violence tactics to silence voices they don’t want to hear. A light has been shined on the authoritarian restrictions on free speech that prevail at universities. The attention will not be welcomed by moonbats. Colorado just abolished free speech zones on public college campuses:

The legislation, Colorado Senate Bill 62, prohibits the state’s public universities from establishing unreasonable speech restrictions. The initiative received bipartisan support in the Colorado legislature and still allows public universities to impose “reasonable time, manner, and place” speech policies.

“Once we limit free speech to a zone, we indicate to our students that free speech does not exist anywhere beyond that zone. That is not the message we want to send to future generations about our core values,” Colorado state Sen. Tim Neville, a co-sponsor of the bill said.

To confine free speech to specified zones is to deny that America itself is a free speech zone. That even some Democrats acknowledge this is an encouraging sign.

Faith Goldy on Cultural Marxism and the Coming Millennial Civil War

Moonbattery didn’t arise organically. It is as deliberately engineered as Zyklon B. Faith Goldy sees the big picture:

Whether Trump’s election was a constructive response to political correctness remains to be seen, but there is no question it was considered a counterstrike against leftism. Hostilities between leftists and the society they have been attempting to eradicate will continue to escalate.

Being Looked at by White Person Reported as Bias Incident

The “oppressed” are so conspicuously unoppressed that they literally ask us to believe that looking at them wrong constitutes oppression.

When Oxford University announced that it is now officially racist not to make eye contact with persons of politically privileged pigmentation, potential thought criminals were warned that it would soon be racist not only not to look at them but also to look at them. Sure enough:

It happened at the University of Wisconsin Madison, where an unnamed “white, female student” was reported to the university’s bias incident reporting system. Her crime? Glaring at two female peers.

The allegedly racist incident occurred in the campus library. From a university document obtained by The College Fix:

There was a white female student that kept making glares at me and another student. She would glare at both of us and then continue to proceed on her phone. This proceeded for 2 hours. Both me and the [other] victim were Asian American women. I don’t know if race plays a part in it. Though this event was small and seemingly insignificant, it made me and the other victim feel unsafe, uncomfortable and paranoid.

Chances are high that it was moonbattery that made the snowflakes paranoid, not some woman of whiteness who was probably not even aware that she was supposedly staring at them.

Pules the poor victim of ocular oppression,

“I don’t feel safe studying in an environment that should be inclusive and welcome to all. … I wouldn’t report this if it didn’t have a significant impact on me.”

Encouraging mental illness and then pandering to the delusions of those who succumb to it are becoming our new national pastime. This sort of idiocy is an inevitable result.

The Dumbest Thing I’ve Seen All Day

Sure, the lefties at the New York Times are a little out there, but they are decent people, right? At least, being in the business of publishing a newspaper, they believe in our basic First Amendment right of free speech… right? Apparently not:

According to the self-styled Paper of Record, if you are prevented from speaking because fascist thugs who disagree with you threaten violence, it is your fault for feeling “emboldened” enough to try to speak in the first place.

Once again, it has been confirmed that the New York Times is not so much a newspaper as a pustule festering with foul poisons that leak into susceptible brains. These fiends defended Stalin’s horrors; they will not lift a finger to defend even our most basic liberties.

Moonbat Professor Cannot Tolerate Student Reading Bible Before Class

Unless you were attempting to proselytize, you wouldn’t bring a Bible into a whorehouse, would you? Then why would you bring one into a university classroom?

A Northern Arizona University student was recently asked to stop reading his Bible prior to the start of one of his classes, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. …

[Student] Mark Holden explains the situation to History Department Chair Derek Heng, who had been called in by the instructor, Dr. Heather Martel, after Holden had refused her request that he put his Bible away.

Holden tells Heng that he had arrived early to his U.S. history course and, as usual, used the spare time to read his Bible, but claims that Martel had objected to the routine because she didn’t want to see a Bible in front of her.

The audio:

You can’t blame Professor Martel of being “triggered” by the mere sight of the Bible. No doubt if you pressed it to her forehead, she would burst into flames.

Imagine the spin she must be putting on U.S. history. This entry at the History Department’s Faculty and Staff page may offer a clue:

heather-martel

Here’s another clue, from her own page at the department:

My research and writing falls under the working book title, Deadly Virtue: Protestant Identity, Sexual Violence and Race in First Encounters with Indigenous Americans. My thesis is that though many of the individual Europeans who met indigenous Americans found them to be sympathetic, the process of defining a new Protestant identity required resistance to indigenous American people and cultures that resulted in sexual violence and developed into modern racism. I contextualize these encounters within the history of Christianity, the body, and early modern identity politics of gender, race, and sexuality.

Corrosive crap like this ought to be marked XXX, like bottles of poison in old cartoons.

Surprise, surprise. She also specializes in “postcolonial, queer, gender, and critical race theory.” As noted recently, the explicit objective of Critical Theory and its various offshoots is to undermine with the eventual goal of eradicating everything that comprises Western Civilization. So no, Martel doesn’t like Bibles.

Saudi to Be Executed for Not Believing in Islam

Moonbats relentlessly bark that Christianity is somehow oppressive, while denouncing anyone who dares criticize Islam as a bigot who is “punching down.” Meanwhile, in a real world that exists unbeknownst to them outside their bubble of fantastical nonsense:

A Saudi Arabian man’s tweets criticizing Islam and the prophet Muhammad will soon cost him his life, according to reports.

Ahmad Al Shamri, who is in his early 20s and from the city of Hafir Al Batin, had reportedly renounced Islam, became an atheist and posted a series of videos reflecting his views on social media, RT reported.

Al Shamri was arrested in 2014, faced trial and was sentenced to death by a local court in February 2015, according to the website.

There is even less freedom of thought in Saudi Arabia than in Berkeley. But fellow-traveling Islamophiles can easily defend their friends by shouting that pointing this out is Islamophobic.

Spoiled Yale Students Demand to Be Even More Pampered, Stage Symbolic Hunger Strike

If you ever decide to go on a hunger strike, do it the Yale way, so as to avoid discomfort:

A group of Yale University graduate students announced Tuesday evening that they would be undertaking a hunger strike to pressure the administration into granting them better union benefits. The strike is taking place in front of University President Peter Salovey’s home.

These are the intolerable conditions that they plan to alleviate by standing around in front of someone’s house not eating:

Yale doctoral students currently earn a stipend $30,000 a year, receive free health care, and have their $40,000 tuition paid in full, according to Yale News.

Not good enough, because nothing could ever be good enough for people as special as today’s Ivy Leaguers.

But would the pampered darlings actually miss a meal in order to reinforce their demands? Not a chance:

According to a pamphlet posted on Twitter by a former Yale student, the hunger strike is “symbolic” and protesters can leave and get food when they can no longer go on.

That is to say, when they start to feel a bit peckish.

ESPN’s Deserved Demise

The bad news is that there is a cable channel even more obnoxiously left-wing than MSNBC. The good news is that largely as a result of its arrogant in-your-face moonbattery, ESPN is going down.

This week there has been a bloodbath at ESPN, with about 100 employees cut:

Familiar faces like Ed Werder, Danny Kanell, Len Elmore, Jayson Stark, Trent Dilfer and Brett McMurphy are among those who have been let go.

Cord cutting and overspending are factors, but clearly not the only ones. Even SportsCenter anchor Linda Cohn admits the role of moonbattery:

“That is definitely a percentage of it,” Cohn said Thursday on 77 WABC’s “Bernie and Sid” show when asked whether certain social or political stances contributed to the stupor that resulted in roughly 100 employees getting the ax this week. “I don’t know how big a percentage, but if anyone wants to ignore that fact, they’re blind.”

Deep Root Analytics provides statistical confirmation:

[I]n 2015, the ESPN audience on average skewed Republican across all dayparts, ranging from 12% more Republican (Early News, Late Fringe, Overnight) to 21% more Republican than Democratic (Early Morning).

In 2016, every daypart on ESPN became less conservative, with Daytime being only 2% more Republican than Democratic, while Late Fringe and Overnight programming became 10% and 12% more Democratic than Republican – a 22 and 28 point shift, respectively.

Republicans have stopped watching ESPN. Here’s the latest reason why:

One day before the network laid off many of its employees, it published five poems about feminism and political resistance on its website geared toward women, ESPNW.

The first poem in the series is called “Revolution” and it’s dedicated to Asatta [sic] Shakur, an icon among black power enthusiasts who was convicted of murdering a police officer in 1977. She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba in 1984, where she’s been hiding ever since.

Publishing political doggerel dedicated to Assata Shakur (born Joanne Chesimard) is yet another indication that the kooks running ESPN are not just annoyingly liberal, but malevolently ultra-Left. The disgraceful network deserves to go bankrupt as surely as Shakur deserves to be executed for murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster during a routine traffic stop. Unless they can run a profitable sports network that appeals only to moonbats (despite sports fans leaning right), justice will be served, at least in ESPN’s case.

Education Professor Wants to Push Queer Theory in Elementary School

Consider the malevolent freaks who dominate the field of education, and then weep for the future:

A science education professor at the University of Arizona believes elementary schoolchildren are being taught “heteronormative” and “limited” ideas in science classrooms, and queer theory and sexuality-infused curricula [are] the answer.

An example of heteronormative science would be teaching students the politically incorrect notion that males of a species mate with females in order to produce offspring. Such a concept is presumably too hurtful and triggering to be tolerated on college campuses; why should it be allowed in elementary schools?

Kristin Gunckel discussed her ideas in a March 23 lecture hosted by the public university’s Institute for LGBT studies.

As you work to generate wealth, the government, having confiscated a large percentage of that wealth, spends some of it paying people like Associate Professor Gunckel to promote the corruption of children in the name of the depraved ideology of the lunatic Left.

She explored “how queer theory can be a useful tool for re-imagining elementary science education and elementary science teacher preparation,” according to a webpage advertising the lecture. …

The webpage, which gives an overview of the lecture, lists three areas Gunckel intended to focus on. One included “inviting sexuality into the elementary science classroom.”

In a previous academic paper, the former middle school science teacher argued that science curriculum should include photos of those with differing sexual orientations and stop “hiding” sexuality from children.

See below for sample photos. Just kidding! This is a family-friendly website.

Just what is “Queer Theory”?

Gunckel described queer theory as “making the normal queer.”

In other words, Queer Theory is a subcategory of Critical Theory that focuses on promoting sexual perversion and the corruption of innocence, and undermining families and the wholesome romantic relationships that give rise to them. The explicit purpose of Critical Theory is to destroy Western Civilization by relentlessly undermining every aspect of it. Thanks to the hegemonic influence of the cultural Marxist Frankfurt School, this has become the main purpose of what we once called “higher” education.
