Children Denied Privacy in Bathrooms

Considering where history is taking us, it might be for the best that California schoolchildren are being forced to get used to having no privacy whatsoever:

Parents in Chula Vista [California] were upset because children at a preschool were forced to go to the bathroom with the door open.

A school spokesperson sympathized with parents’ complaints, and said kids are so embarrassed about having to go to the bathroom without the door shut, they were having accidents in the classroom.

The spokesperson said the policy is not by choice and the district is forced to follow state regulations. He also said the district has made changes to accommodate the state mandate.

These changes include installing windows in bathroom doors and removing stall doors.

According to California Department of Social Services public information officer Michael Weston, a state regulation known as the Visual Observation Rule requires that preschoolers age 4 and younger must always be in view — and they do mean always.

Even in utopia, authorities can’t keep us safe at all times if they can’t watch us at all times.

Separated at Birth?

I always knew there was something creepy about explosively anti-Christian bigot Mikey Weinstein, who has been recruited by the Obama Regime to impose “religious tolerance” on the Armed Forces. But I didn’t realize he is Uncle Fester’s identical twin:

Uncle Fester isn’t the only member of the Addams Family household to have a moonbat twin in the Obama Regime:

Criminal Dereliction of Duty

Retired SEAL Billy Allmon weighs in on the Benghazi outrage:

Two of my SEAL brothers ([Glen] Doherty and [Ty] Woods) were in Benghazi, working with the CIA on an intelligence mission to locate shoulder fired surface-to-air missiles that were stolen by Al Qaeda when Libya fell. They heard several shots being fired near the consulate. It was recorded that Ty radioed to inform his superiors and tell them what he was hearing and requested permission to assist at the consulate. However, they were told to “stand down!” An hour later, they called again to report the gunfire and requested to assist and were again told to “stand down!” WHY? And by whom? Only the President can give the order to military units to cross a country’s borders.

On or about midnight, while shooting in various areas was still going on, it was reported that Woods and Doherty called for any U.S. military support they could get because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house/annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound (which was verified by the radio recordings and by the drone that was flying overhead.) The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. …

It was reported that both Woods and Doherty were killing every terrorist that appeared. Ty repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship that was in a neutral area. This is a C-130 aircraft that fires 20mm bullets (about the size of a man’s thumb) and 105 howitzer rounds at laser-illuminated targets. This aircraft is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The aircraft was told to “stand down”! WHY?

Here’s why: Permission to provide support was not granted by the left-wing community organizer the liberal media saw fit to make President of the United States. Instead, he went to bed to rest up for his fundraiser the next day in Las Vegas.

At least one witness has confirmed that support could have been provided:

A military special ops member who watched as the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi unfolded last September told Fox News the U.S. had highly trained forces just a few hours away, and said he and others feel the government betrayed the four men who died in the attack.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, and appearing in a Fox News Channel interview with his face and voice disguised, the special operator contradicted claims by the Obama administration and a State Department review that said there wasn’t enough time for U.S. military forces to have intervened in the Sept. 11 attack in which U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, an embassy employee and two former Navy SEALs working as private security contractors were killed.

“I know for a fact that C-110, the EUCOM CIF, was doing a training exercise in … not in the region of North Africa, but in Europe,” the operator told Fox News’ Adam Housley. “And they had the ability to act and to respond.”

Although full details can only come to light when there has been a thorough investigation and responsible media coverage, it appears obvious that Obama is guilty of extreme dereliction of duty. It is beyond obvious that he is unfit for office.

Profiles in Banana Republic Moonbattery: Mel Watt

The problem isn’t just Obama. The problem is also all the rabid moonbats he has been appointing to positions of power. For example, Mel Watt:

The White House announced Wednesday that Obama will nominate Democratic North Carolina Congressman Mel Watt to take over the FHFA, which regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the country’s government sponsored mortgage companies.

According to Watt, the former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, many whites are unwilling to vote for black candidates. Therefore,

The Voting Rights Act should be expanded to “adjust districts to take [racially motivated voting] into account,” Watts said.

Such voters “need to be factored out of the equation,” Watt said, because “I’ve got no use for them in the democratic process.”

The “democratic process” is whatever charade guarantees leftists like Watt stay in power.

Not just any leftist will do; pigmentation is important. Watt had this to say to Ralph Nader:

“You’re just another arrogant white man — telling us what we can do — it’s all about your ego — another f—king arrogant white man.”

People like this have been allowed to take over our country to appease the moral vanity of ideologically insane white liberals. Predictably, they are destroying it.

Anyone think the race-based mortgages that caused the 2008 housing collapse will end soon with Watt calling the shots for Freddie/Fanny?

Border Crossings Triple Due to Amnesty Talk

Maybe the Democrat–RINO Axis of Treason doesn’t need to ram through amnesty to crush the economy and demographically transform the country into a Third World hellhole. Just talking about it might suffice:

Arrests of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States have nearly tripled in recent months in anticipation of Congressional efforts to enact comprehensive immigration legislation, border patrol agents told CBS News Wednesday.

“Once the first group gets across, they call their family, they call their friends and let them know, ‘Hey the time is right, come on over,’” Border Patrol agent and union representative Chris Cabrera told CBS News.

In March, 7,500 illegals were arrested in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, which includes McAllen, Cabrera told CBS News. That’s up from 2,800 in January.

For each welfare colonist who is arrested, a dozen more are not. Then the ones who are arrested are released.

Big Government had inadvertently alleviated the situation by hamstringing the economy. But that has been made up for now:

Immigration into the United States had been slowing during the recession.

But, CBS says, hopes of gaining citizenship under new legislation and a rebounding U.S. economy are fueling the fresh migration.

What happens after America has absorbed every last Mexican who was unable to succeed in Mexico? The rest of the Third World follows:

Some of the illegals come from as far away as Brazil, Cabrera told CBS.

“The people in Washington think they have this idea that the border is safe, the border is secure,” the Border Patrol agent said. “I think they need to come down here and take a look.”

Oh, they know it’s not secure. They have made sure that it isn’t secure. Soon our rulers will preside over a population much more to their liking.

Playing Dumb

Here’s some advice for media moonbats that should be easy to follow. When confronted with your sympathy for those who are more forthright in advancing ultra-left ideology, just play dumb. This is how it’s done:

While covering a May Day rally in Manhattan’s Union Square on Wednesday, NBC New York reporter Ida Siegal was cornered and asked if her network planned to show the communist imagery the protesters were displaying. Hilarity ensued when Siegal immediately became defensive, denying she had seen any communist imagery and asking of the “Hammer-and-Sickle” flags: “What do they represent?”

What the hammer & sickle emblem represents is the senseless death of over 100 million people at the hands of their own communist governments, and the wretched enslavement of hundreds of millions more. It represents the nightmare past for Russia and — if the folks running the “mainstream” media have their way — the nightmare future for America. Compared to the hammer & sickle, the swastika is a smiley face.

Ida Siegal would deserve an Order of Lenin prize for being the ultimate useful idiot, if her ignorance were genuine.

On a tip from Sam Adams.

A Tyrant Hits His Slice Limit

This one is filed under Too Good to Check:

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was denied a second slice of pizza today at an Italian eatery in Brooklyn.

The owners of Collegno’s Pizzeria say they refused to serve him more than one piece to protest Bloomberg’s proposed soda ban, which would limit the portions of soda sold in the city.

Bloomberg was having an informal working lunch with city comptroller John Liu at the time and was enraged by the embarrassing prohibition. The owners would not relent, however, and the pair were forced to decamp to another restaurant to finish their meal.

Witnesses say the situation unfolded when as the two were looking over budget documents, they realized they needed more food than originally ordered.

“Hey, could I get another pepperoni over here?” Bloomberg asked owner Antonio Benito.

“I’m sorry sir,” he replied, “we can’t do that. You’ve reached your personal slice limit.”

Mayor Bloomberg, not accustomed to being challenged, assumed that the owner was joking.

“OK, that’s funny,” he remarked, “because of the soda thing … No come on. I’m not kidding. I haven’t eaten all morning, just send over another pepperoni.”

“I’m sorry sir. We’re serious,” Benito insisted. “We’ve decided that eating more than one piece isn’t healthy for you, and so we’re forbidding you from doing it.”

If this story were true, Benito would already have received a visit from the health inspector; by next week his business would be closed.

Redneck Day Denounced as Racist Against Blacks

You probably thought rednecks were the one group our liberal masters would allow us to make fun of. Wrong. True enough, no one cares about white folks in Jesusland, but the tender feelings of blacks are always a top priority. See if you can make sense of this:

When members of the student council at an Arizona high school organized a schoolwide “Redneck Day” and encouraged classmates to dress — and spoof — accordingly, they hoped to build school spirit leading up to prom week.

Instead, “Redneck Day” at Queen Creek High School has angered African-Americans and civil-rights leaders and touched off a debate about free speech, social stereotypes and good taste.

Tom Lindsey, superintendent of the Queen Creek Unified School District, said the only intent of Wednesday’s event was to satirize the A&E reality TV show “Duck Dynasty,” which follows a family of duck hunters and entrepreneurs from West Monroe, La.

But some students and their family members weren’t amused. Among them: the Rev. Ozetta Kirby, pastor of Holy Trinity Community AME Church in Mesa and vice president of the East Valley chapter of the NAACP.

“I’m sitting here crying and praying,” said Kirby, whose grandson Marcus Still is a 16-year-old junior at the school.

“This thing really got to Marcus,” Kirby said. “When you’re in 11th grade, that can break you down and make you feel at the bottom rung of the whole society, where everybody is being jubilant. No kid should have to go through that. We all know the connotation of ‘redneck.’ “

No we don’t. So Kirby spells it out:

Most offensive to Kirby and others was that one student chose to wear a Confederate flag — for many a grim reminder of slavery and segregation.

This illustrates how desperate a certain fawned-over “victim” group is to find something to pretend to be offended about.

“The Confederacy represents the horrible institution of slavery, and that is a direct attack on African-Americans,” said Steve Montoya, a prominent civil-rights attorney in Phoenix.

Montoya’s past achievements include successfully suing Tempe Union High School District for having students read the literary classic Huckleberry Finn, which contains the forbidden N word.

If we keep moving, they will keep pushing, until our entire culture goes over a cliff.

Student Charged With Felony Over Unloaded Shotgun

All animals are equal on the progressive animal farm. However, some animals are less equal than others:

According to law enforcement officials, punishments are not the same for students and school administrators who commit crimes on school property in Johnston County [North Carolina].

One day after a Johnston County high school senior was expelled for having an unloaded gun on campus, ABC11 learned administrators only suspended an assistant principal at the same school for a similar incident last year.

David “Cole” Withrow is a Princeton High School honors student who was arrested Monday and charged with a felony for having a shotgun in his truck in the school parking lot. Sources told ABC11 the Eagle Scout forgot it was still in the truck after skeet shooting over the weekend.

Once he remembered, he used the phone in the school office to call his mom. Administrators overheard him, and he was arrested and expelled.

Imagine explaining to your great grandfather how America was allowed to disintegrate into a place where leftist authoritarians would arbitrarily destroy a young man’s life for accidentally exercising a constitutional right.

On tips from Karpet and G. Fox.
