Students Reject Opportunity to Achieve Grade Equality

Pranksters have finally found a petition that at least a few students won’t sign eagerly. It calls for inflicting socialism not on other people, but rather on themselves:

For once students learned something, namely that “fairness” as defined by the liberal establishment is unfair.

Now Moonbats Want to Banish Sam Houston Statues From Houston

Liberal fascists must be running out of Confederate generals to banish to the memory hole. Now they are going after heroes of the Texas Revolution, starting at the top:

The Sam Houston statue has been at Hermann Park since 1925, but a group that calls itself Texas Antifa has started a campaign to take down this and any other landmark that bears the name Sam Houston. …

[Last] Thursday, the group posted on its Facebook page saying, “Texans agree the disgusting idols of America’s dark days of slavery must be removed to bring internal peace to our country.”

The group also suggested Mayor Sylvester Turner should back the removal of the statue, because of his ethnicity and political affiliation.

Turner is a black Democrat.

Sam Houston owned 12 slaves and therefore is subject to demonization and expurgation from history — as are many of the Founding Fathers of the USA.

When Sam Houston was a senator in the 1800s, he repeatedly voted against the spread of slavery to new territories of the United States. He was also ousted as governor of Texas for refusing to align himself with the Confederacy.

Yeah, but he owned slaves. Plus he was white, and fought Mexicans. Any historical figure who is not in total compliance with the up to the minute requirements of political correctness is fair game.

Antifa … alluded to a partnership with Black Lives Matter.

Despite having similar objectives where historical monuments are concerned, BLM Houston denies a connection. We may or may not be able to judge who is telling the truth by the quality of the spelling when moonbats start defacing Sam Houston monuments with graffiti.

Portland Mayor Employs Shameless Tactic in Attempt to Suppress Free Speech Rallies

Nothing sums up modern liberalism better than the Mayor of Portland trying to shut down free speech rallies:

The mayor of Portland, Oregon, on Monday urged U.S. officials and organizers to cancel a “Trump Free Speech Rally” and other similar events, saying they are inappropriate and could be dangerous after two men were stabbed to death on a train as they tried to help a pair of young women targeted by an anti-Muslim tirade. …

Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche, 23, and Ricky John Best, 53, were killed Friday as they tried to stop Jeremy Joseph Christian from harassing the women, one of whom was wearing a hijab, authorities say. Another who stepped in was seriously injured.

Mayor Wheeler, who avers that the Constitution does not protect anything that he deems to be “hate speech,” is trying to hang the murders committed by this maniac around the neck of Trump supporters and defenders of free speech in the face of the liberal fascism that has been so prevalent on the Left Coast lately.

This is a joke, considering that the fortunately named (from the point of view of liberal propagandists) Christian was a Bernie Sanders supporter during the election. When he tried to infiltrate an event like the ones that Wheeler is trying to suppress, he was kicked out:

Christian is a lowlife criminal who apparently learned his ideology in prison, where militant racial solidarity can be a survival technique:

Christian served prison time after holding up employees at a convenience store with a gun in 2002, court records show. He went back after pleading guilty in 2011 to being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was behind bars again in 2013 for violating a condition of his release, according to court records.

Tomica Clark told The Oregonian/OregonLive that she has known Christian since elementary school. She said she was surprised to hear people call Christian racist. Clark is black and said Christian had many black friends.

“He never disrespected me,” Clark said, but added that he changed after he got out of prison.

Using some homicidal goon with obvious mental problems to represent free speech, and as a pretext to suppress free speech, is an indication of how shameless leftists have become in their strong-arm tactics.

Politicizing Physics

The work of cultural Marxists and critical theorists is not completed until every pillar supporting Western civilization has been destroyed by moonbattery. This includes even fields of accomplishment that in a healthy society would have nothing to do with politics, like physics:

A feminist academic affiliated with the University of Arizona has invented a new theory of “intersectional quantum physics,” and told the world about it in a journal published by Duke University Press.

Whitney Stark argues in support of “combining intersectionality and quantum physics” to better understand “marginalized people” and to create “safer spaces” for them, in the latest issue of The Minnesota Review.

Because traditional quantum physics theory has influenced humanity’s understanding of the world, it has also helped lend credence to the ongoing regime of racism, sexism and classism that hurts minorities, Stark writes in “Assembled Bodies: Reconfiguring Quantum Identities.”

When liberals are through banishing famous Confederates to the memory hole, they will go after the Founding Fathers. The next dead white males on the hit list may be famous scientists like the noted racist/sexist/homophobe/transphobe/Islamophobe thought criminal Isaac Newton:

Stark identifies Newtonian physics as one of the main culprits behind oppression. “Newtonian physics,” she writes, has “separated beings” based on their “binary and absolute differences.”

What a bigot, that Newton. No doubt Einstein was just as bad.

“This structural thinking of individualized separatism with binary and absolute differences as the basis for how the universe works is embedded in many structures of classification,” according to Stark.

These structures of classification, such as male/female, or living/non-living, are “hierarchical and exploitative” and are thusly “part of the apparatus that enables oppression.”

They are also part of the apparatus that enables sanity — which academia has been methodically working to dismantle.

Maybe Whitney should stop contributing to oppression with her binary classification of the human race into the sanctified oppressed and demonized oppressors. Then she could make herself useful by getting a job cleaning hotel rooms or something instead.

Check out the abstract:

In this semimanifesto, I approach how understandings of quantum physics and cyborgian bodies can (or always already do) ally with feminist anti-oppression practices long in use. The idea of the body (whether biological, social, or of work) is not stagnant, and new materialist feminisms help to recognize how multiple phenomena work together to behave in what can become legible at any given moment as a body. By utilizing the materiality of conceptions about connectivity often thought to be merely theoretical, by taking a critical look at the noncentralized and multiple movements of quantum physics, and by dehierarchizing the necessity of linear bodies through time, it becomes possible to reconfigure structures of value, longevity, and subjectivity in ways explicitly aligned with anti-oppression practices and identity politics. Combining intersectionality and quantum physics can provide for differing perspectives on organizing practices long used by marginalized people, for enabling apparatuses that allow for new possibilities of safer spaces, and for practices of accountability.

Uh, yeah.

Lifting a Leg on the Annoying Fearless Girl

Wall Street’s famous Charging Bull statue represents a bull market — that is, a thriving capitalist economy. Liberals object to this, so they countered with a statue representing their obtuse and irrelevant feminist viewpoint. Now a countermoonbat has reacted to their reaction:

City sculptor Alex Gardega — seething over the “Fearless Girl” statue being placed across from Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” — has decided to retaliate with a work of his own.

Gardega created a statue of a small dog, titled “Pissing Pug,” and his sloppily crafted pooch takes direct aim at “Fearless Girl” — or, at least, at her left leg. …

The Upper West Side artist sniffed that he even made his dog particularly poorly just to stick it to “Fearless Girl” even more.

“I decided to build this dog and make it crappy to downgrade the statue, exactly how the girl is a downgrade on the bull,” said Gardega…

Bull sculptor Di Modica is no fan of “Fearless Girl,” either, having said that placing the statue of the child opposite his bull unfairly implicates his creation.

Moonbats predictably responded by calling Gardega “misogynistic.”

British Students Taught to Respect Terrorists

From Britain, where moonbats are probably chewing through their lips fretting about imaginary Islamophobia in the aftermath of the Manchester atrocity:

A new teaching aid that recommends schoolchildren as young as seven “write a letter to a terrorist” to help understand their motives has been condemned as “dangerous and misguided”.

The book, Talking About Terrorism, published weeks before the Manchester Arena atrocity, describes the indiscriminate mass murder of innocent members of the public as a “type of war”.

It tells primary age children that terrorists kill people because they believe they are being treated “unfairly and not shown respect”.

Presumably someone believes that murdering the innocent warrants respect.

Islamic terrorists are compared to Suffragettes, with the implication that their cause (the extirpation of Western civilization) is a just one.

This is the equivalent of feeding kids Nazi propaganda during the Battle of Britain, which if fought today would turn out very differently due to the corrosion of the British character by moonbattery.

Taxi Service for Displacing Europe’s Population

Anything associated with Infowars has to be taken with a grain of salt, but this video by Paul Joseph Watson will still stand your hair on end:

Combine the mass importation of “refugees” with Africa’s exploding population rate and you have effective genocide. If this continues, within a century Europeans will face a situation as grim as whites do now in South Africa. Another century after that and no one will even remember Europeans; the continent will be populated by savages squatting in dung huts.

If Russia invaded, Europe would fight back. But to be conquered by Russians would be infinitely better than to be displaced out of existence by uncountable hordes of Africans, because there would still be such a thing as the future.

Class Entitled “Abolition of Whiteness” Satisfies Political Science Requirement

Cultural Marxists must be approaching the end game, when you consider how forthright they are about their objectives lately. Touchy-feely platitudes about diversity and inclusion are giving way to the fanatical malice toward America’s core population that is at the heart of their ideology:

Jennifer Gaboury, a women and gender studies professor, teaches “Abolition of Whiteness” at Hunter College. “‘POLSC 20474-01: Abolition of Whiteness’” can be taken as either a women and gender studies course, or as a class for the political science department, for which it fulfills a requirement for the ‘4 subfields of political science,’” according to Campus Reform.

The class’s listing on the school’s course catalog provides only a vague description of its content, but a flyer displaying a fall 2016 offering of the course claims it examines “how whiteness – and/or white supremacy and violence – is intertwined with conceptions of gender, race, sexuality, class, body ability, nationality, and age.”

Looks like whiteness fits in with all the other things liberals want to abolish or at the very least discourage, like gender-appropriate behavior, sexual normalcy, prosperity, American nationality, et cetera. This is known among moonbats as “intersectionality.”

German Finance Minister in Response to Manchester: Christians Can Learn From Muslims

Considering Germany’s leading role in Islamizing Europe by importing vast numbers of Muslim welfare colonists, it might be interesting to hear what the German government had to say 2 days after the Manchester atrocity. Presenting Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble:

“It is fanaticism, not only in Islam, that leads to terrible crimes,” he said, speaking on German public radio station Deutschlandfunk Wednesday evening, when asked about the Islamist attack in which 22 mostly young people, including an eight-year-old girl, lost their lives.

As should be obvious to anyone, it is not fanaticism per se that makes terrorists wicked, but the evil cult they are fanatical about. Would a fanatical Quaker blow up little girls?

This is rich:

“‘Islam is part of Germany’ is a sober, factual statement,” the minister remarked, commenting on sentiments voiced by Chancellor Angela Merkel on more than one occasion – which are not shared by the majority of Germans.

“Anyone who denies this denies reality and is therefore not suited to being a politician, because politics begins with the confrontation of reality,” he added.

Speaking of denying reality,

“Many human values are very strongly realised in Islam. Think of hospitality, and other things like, what is there… And also tolerance, I believe, for example.”

From the beginning, Islam has responded to those who refuse to knuckle under to it not with tolerance, but with violence. Mohammad dispatched assassins to silence doubters, and personally oversaw the torture and mass execution of those who resisted. Islam’s defining tradition of violent intolerance continues to this day. There have been well over 30,000 lethal Islamic terror attacks just since September 11, 2001. How many Christian, Hindu, or Buddhist terror attacks have there been?

The country’s rapidly growing Muslim demographic presents an “opportunity” for “Christians, and all who live in Germany”, Schäuble stated, adding: “We can learn from them.”

No functioning person could be dumb enough to believe a word of this crap. Schäuble and the rest of Merkel’s administration should be tried for treason.

However, it is true enough that Europeans have learned from the Muslims that their governments have imported. The main thing they have been learning is that excessive diversity is weakness, not strength — which is exactly why cultural Marxists promote it.

Study Finds Organic Food Requires 40% More Land Use

Moonbats are willing to pay more for organic food mainly because it makes them feel self-righteous. However, like wind power and hybrid vehicles, it is harmful to the environment. An article published in the Journal of Cleaner Production finds that in Germany, in comparison to a normal diet,

the land use to provide food is ca. 40% greater in the organic diet (ca. 1900 and 2750 m2 of land cap−1 year−1 in the conventional and organic diets, respectively).

Forty percent more land use is substantial. Think of all the wind turbines that could have been constructed on that extra land for chopping up birds and bats.

Illegal Immigrants at Columbia University Issue Outlandish List of Demands

Having figured out that no one is going to deport more than a tiny percentage of them, illegal aliens are escalating their demands:

Illegal immigrants at Columbia University are demanding free health coverage along with mandatory “sensitivity training” for professors and staff.

“Sensitivity training” means brainwashing people with the concept that by being in the country illegally, Third World colonists are “oppressed” and “marginalized” and therefore deserve special rights and privileges at the expense of people who belong here.

“We refuse to amend or change any of these demands,” the group UndoCU began their 13-point list.

The list includes need-based funding for illegal aliens. Emory University already offers free tuition for illegal aliens who say they can’t pay.

[Columbia] devotes an entire page on its website to listing the resources it offers for such students, noting that it has designated a liaison between undocumented students and the administration, arranged pro-bono legal representation, and even provides support from Counseling and Psychological Services.

But none of that is enough for the illegal aliens at Columbia, because nothing you give looters and moochers will ever be enough.

The time has come for regular Americans to make a demand of their own for a change: a row of catapults at the border to send crybully illegal aliens on their way home.

A Pakistani-American Hate Hoaxer in Queens

With all the yelling the media does about Islamophobia after every Islamic terror attack, you wouldn’t think that people of Islamic background would have to resort to so many hate hoaxes. Yet they continue to pile up. Here’s one from Queens, New York:

A college student who said he was robbed by three masked men hurling racial slurs at him has recanted his story, police sources say.

The 21-year-old victim initially told police he was walking home in the vicinity of 165th Street and 81st Avenue on Thursday when a black sprinter van pulled up and three men wearing ski masks pulled him inside and robbed him.

He told police they punched him, took his wallet, yelled racial slurs and told him to quote “get out of my country.”

Now the unnamed Pakistani-American “victim” admits that he made the whole thing up.

No word on when he will compensate taxpayers for all the expensive police time he wasted. But at least he gave journalists something to cluck their tongues about for awhile:
