George Mason University Student Representative Fired for Objecting to Instate Tuition for Illegal Aliens

In an ideologically homogeneous environment like academia, certain thoughts cannot be allowed. For example:

A former student representative at George Mason University was removed from his position after tweeting about “illegals” receiving in-state college tuition which was perceived as offensive by some students.

Storm Paglia assumed the position of undersecretary for university dining services last May and on Feb. 13 tweeted his disapproval of the Virginia Senate and House allowing “illegals” to have “in state tuition with an easier process than if I were to apply.”

“And the next time someone tells me the word ILLEGAL is inappropriate please enlighten me on how they haven’t broken our country’s laws,” Paglia continued in a separate tweet.

GMU’s student body president, Philip Abbruscato, released [an] official message on Sunday boasting of the school’s “thousands of unique voices” and the student government’s “variety of backgrounds, cultures, ideologies, academic interests, and more.”

Abbruscato also said that “demeaning” remarks from members of GMU’s student government would “not be tolerated at any level regardless of belief,” and removed Paglia from his position on Feb. 20.

Abbruscato was apparently responding to screeching activists from the Virginia Student Power Network. This outfit denounced Paglia as “racist” for pointing out that it is unfair that we are forced to subsidize the tuition of people who are in the country illegally, and who are given advantages that American citizens do not enjoy.

The people in charge aren’t going to argue with you, because they know they will lose any rational argument. They will simply shut you up, usually in a way that will serve as an example to others who otherwise might hesitate to conform to the official ideology.

Ironically, considering the official contempt shown for American sovereignty and for the fundamentally American notion of free speech, GMU is named after one of the Founding Fathers, who along with James Madison is known as the co-father of the Bill of Rights. GMU’s sports teams are called the Patriots.

Shrillary on FCC’s Moves Against Internet: “It’s a Foot in the Door”

If this country still had any comprehension of the absolute necessity of free speech, these half dozen words from Hillary Clinton would cripple her political career:

“It’s a foot in the door.”

Shrillary was referring to Obama’s alarming attempts to use the FCC to do to the Internet what ObamaCare did to health insurance, and the EPA is doing to the coal industry.

The remark confirms that as with all federal regulation, its main purpose is to provide leverage so as to inflict further regulation. So long as a single unapproved thought can be expressed on the Internet, the fascistic likes of Obama and Shrillary will not be finished with it.

Shrillary prepares to sink her claws into the Internet.

Joe Biden Calls for “Emancipation” of Our Money

One purpose of a court jester is to tell truths that only an acknowledged fool could get away with admitting. Joe Biden continues this tradition — unless we are so far gone down the trail blazed by Lenin that it is okay now for top government officials to openly call for the “emancipation” of the wealth we create:

Vice President Joe Biden used a Black History Month event at his official residence Monday night to decry the rich, both white and black, for stunting economic growth and suggested that “emancipation” is in order.

“A lot of wealthy white and black people aren’t bad but they control 1 percent of the economy and this cannot stand,” Biden told about 100 guests, including past civil rights activists and NBC weatherman [not to mention proud White House pants-pooper] Al Roker.

“It’s not fair because the business experts are saying that concentration of wealth is stunting growth. So let’s do something that’s worthy of emancipation,” said Biden, according to a press pool report of the event.

Another term for the “emancipation” of wealth by wealthy oligarchs like Biden under cover of Marxist rhetoric is “confiscation.”

By encouraging his audience to resent people who work hard and achieve economic success even if they are black, Biden confirms that propaganda regarding “white privilege” and the reality of black privilege are merely means to an end that has nothing to do with race, and that is most commonly symbolized by a hammer and sickle.

Shrillary Is Back in Communication With Eleanor Roosevelt

Uh oh. Shrillary has been chatting with Eleanor Roosevelt again:

“One of the best pieces of advice that I have ever heard from anyone is from Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1920s, who said that women in politics or in public roles should grow skin like a rhinoceros,” Clinton said at an event kicking off a partnership with her family foundation’s “No Ceilings” project and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “I think there is some truth to that.”

I wonder if Eleanor also advised her to grow cankles like a hippopotamus.

Shrillary has had heart-to-hearts with the wife of America’s first radical left president before. Incidentally, Eleanor Roosevelt died in 1962. No word on what position she will hold in Shrillary’s cabinet if the media is successful in its next presidential coronation.

Disgraced UN Climate Commie Rajendra Pachauri Proclaims That Enviromoonbattery Is His Religion

Creepy global warming profiteer Rajendra Pachauri has been forced out of his position as Chairman of the farcical yet menacing UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change due to a sexual harassment complaint. Interestingly, on behalf of the IPCC he shared the Nobel Prize for helping to propagate the global warming hoax with Al Gore, the “giggling crazed sex poodle” who got in hot water for molesting a masseuse. Before leaving, Pachauri made clear that ecofascism (i.e., global warming) is more than a scheme to achieve money and power at other people’s expense. For the liberal ruling class, it is quite literally a religion:

“For me the protection of Planet Earth, the survival of all species and sustainability of our ecosystems is more than a mission. It is my religion and my dharma.”

A godless religion that regards humans as the source of everything bad and their absence as the essence of goodness is unlikely to have positive results.

Keith Olbermann Suspended From ESPN for Ridiculing Pediatric Cancer Fundraising Effort

Extreme obnoxiousness is both a curse and a blessing for insufferable moonbat commentator Keith Olbermann. Without it, he would have no career, since it is the distinguishing characteristic that earned him national prominence. But he also doesn’t have much of a career because of it, having been fired when not even the far left kooks running MSNBC could stand him anymore. He washed up at comparably liberal ESPN, where he has now been suspended for denouncing a $13 million Penn State pediatric cancer fundraising effort as “pitiful”:

Keith Olbermann will not host his show for the rest of the week, ESPN said Tuesday, because of tweets critical of Penn State and its annual THON fundraiser.

“We are aware of the exchange Keith Olbermann had on Twitter last night regarding Penn State,” ESPN said in a statement. “It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the views of ESPN.” …

THON is an IFC/Panhellenic dance marathon at Penn State, which since 1977 has raised more than $127 million for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, according to the THON website. The most recent marathon took place Friday to Sunday and raised $13 million.

They are letting Überdouche come back on Monday due to his groveling apology:

Queef’s tweets took a different tone earlier, when he yapped like an ill-tempered shih tzu at Penn State students and their charitable efforts, as documented at Total Frat Move.

Shameful face-flops are another distinguishing characteristic for the Queefster.

University of Michigan Class Teaches That Capitalism Should Be Overthrown

“Capitalism,” as economic freedom is commonly called, constitutes proof that in the long run, goodness is rewarded. Every other economic system throughout the history of mankind has been based on coercion — i.e., theft and slavery. But capitalism consists of private economic arrangements entered into voluntarily for mutual benefit. If angels had economics, they would be capitalists. This way of doing things has produced previously unimaginable levels of wealth, lifting people out of poverty by the hundreds of millions.

Consequently, the sort of people running our universities hate it:

A textbook used for an “activism” class at the University of Michigan teaches that capitalism should be “overthrown” – claiming “capitalism means waste, poverty, ecological degradation, dispossession, inequality, exploitation, imperialism, war and violence.”

The textbook, “Beautiful Trouble: A Toolbox for Revolution,” is assigned as mandatory reading for “Organizational Studies 203: Activism,” a class at the public university that pledges to teach students about the “struggles of movements past, as well as hands-on engagement with the struggles of today.”

The course is unbiased on paper, with its description stating “neither this course, nor its instructional staff, embraces or rejects any ideology, movement, or political project. We will not preach social change from any particular point of view.”

But the book blames the “global slump we are living through” on capitalism, adding it “is the predictable manifestation of a crisis-prone economic system rooted in production for profit rather than for human need. … [F]or the sake of human development and ecological sanity it needs to be overthrown.”

It describes capitalism as morally perverse, and defines it as “a profit-driven economic system rooted in inequality, exploitation, dispossession and environmental destruction.”…

It also touts pull quotes such as “capitalism turns men and women into economic cannibals, and having done so, mistakes economic cannibalism for human nature.”

Here is a pull quote from a book that would serve aspiring activists much better:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Already capitalism is as much dead as alive under our current quasi-socialist system. Economic freedom lost could take centuries to regain. If liberalism continues to erode liberty, the future will consist of slaves toiling for overlords, so that the wealth they create can be enjoyed by others, just like in the pre-capitalist past. Progressives would call this economic justice.

Sally Kohn Laments That 6-Year-Old Daughter Is Not Yet a Lesbian

If life starts to get you down, you can at least be glad you don’t have a pervert propagandist for a parent:

Sally Kohn a political commentator who has appeared on CNN and MSNBC, describes herself as living in the ‘liberal bubble of Park Slope, Brooklyn,’ where ‘yuppies’ want their kids to be happy.

She said: ‘I’m gay. And I want my kid to be gay, too.’

In a lengthy essay in The Washington Post Kohn explained that, she, like most parents simply wants her child to follow in her footsteps.

There is more to the gay marriage blitzkrieg than an attack on Christianity. It is also meant to encourage homosexual adoption. Otherwise, homosexuals would not be able to reproduce directly, and would have to depend on the recruitment facilitated by the general decay of society.

She laments that the little girl doesn’t appear to be a sexual deviant yet — but Kohnhead is still working on it:

‘When my daughter plays house with her stuffed koala bears as the mom and dad, we gently remind her that they could be a dad and dad.’

Fox News is among the cable news outfits that have paid this sick woman to spout her twisted opinions on television.

The Daily Mail piece doesn’t mention the little girl’s actual parentage. It is politically incorrect to acknowledge that two homosexuals can’t produce babies.

Also left unclear is whether Ms. Conehead was named after the conehead bush cricket, which “sings [or in Sally’s case, jabbers] for long periods without stopping.”

Dick Cheney Accurately Assesses the Character of Prominent Democrats

If there is one person in politics who isn’t either a malevolent moonbat or a mealy-mouthed weenie, it is Dick Cheney:

The memory of the 2004 presidential re-election campaign remains long and vivid for former Vice President Dick Cheney, who recalled that he was unimpressed and even disgusted with challengers John Kerry and running mate John Edwards.

Reflecting on Kerry’s bid in a new oral history project from Southern Methodist University’s Center for Presidential History, the former veep called it a “no-class operation,” especially for targeting Cheney’s lesbian daughter in a debate over same-sex marriage.

And he slapped Edwards, a former North Carolina senator, as a “scumbag” for fathering a child out of wedlock.

Edwards fathered this child while married to another woman, who was dying of breast cancer at the time. What do you expect of a trial lawyer who made his fortune exploiting our corrupt legal system to loot doctors? Come to think of it, what do you expect of a Democrat politician?

No wonder liberals loathe and fear Cheney like no one else. Straight talk is to a moonbat what sunlight is to a vampire.

Obama Regime Attacks Meat Industry

Hope & Change is a war on all aspects of traditional America. This includes our diet — and what primarily distinguishes our diet from those subsisted upon in the Third World is meat:

A panel of nutrition experts recruited by the Obama administration to craft the newest dietary guidelines suggested last week that the government should consider the environment when deciding what people should eat.

According to far left ideology, eating meat affects the environment by making it be too hot out for the sacred man-eating polar bears.

The report, which was presented to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, bills itself as a way to “transform the food system” and that’s got a lot of people in the heartland and those elected to represent them in Washington fuming.

The transformation of the “food system” is just one of many aspects of the promised “fundamental transformation” of America.

Dr. Richard Thorpe, a Texas physician and rancher, told FoxNews.com that he is disappointed in the panel’s recommendations and said “it’s absurd the committee would suggest the reduction of meat, or red meat, in the American diet.”

Thorpe says nutritional science is “constantly evolving” and that reports like the one released last week “can absolutely kill an industry” and called the report an “insult.”

The real insult is to be ruled by the sort of kooks who would want to eliminate meat from our diet.

“Legumes should be a mainstay of an American diet?” Thorpe said, adding that it would take a wheelbarrow full of spinach to meet the same amount of iron in a serving of beef. He added that iron found in beef is not equal to iron in spinach, and that beef’s iron is more absorbable.

But liberals counter science with often lavishly government-funded pseudoscience.

According to a June 2014 study in the journal Climatic Change, the average meat-eater in the United States is responsible for almost twice as much global warming as the average vegetarian and almost tripled that of the average vegan.

The problem in Boston must be too many vegans and not enough meat-eaters.

How do they determine the amount of nonexistent global warming you cause by tucking into a juicy steak? The same way they would calculate how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

The Obama Regime’s war on meat could have any number of motives, ranging from sheer malice (the apparent motive for crippling the coal industry) to a desire to gradually ease us into a Third World standard of living consistent with their dismal concept of egalitarian utopia (and with their immigration policies).

There is also something masculine about meat, which is sure to evoke ire in liberals, as is anything that reminds them of the Old West, when America was healthy and blooming thanks to an absence of progressivism. Refer to the Cliven Bundy story (see here, here, here, here, and here) to see how much our metrosexual moonbat ruling class likes ranchers. These are people who regard the word “cowboy” as an insult.

Probably the most compelling reason to control our meat consumption is right there in the word “control.” Control of food possibly even more than political terror allowed Stalin to inflict his ghastly regime. After meat and sugar will come everything else until every bite of food can only be chewed with the permission of our rulers. For our own good, of course.

At Least 90 Christians Headed for Horrific Death in Obama’s Post-American World

According to Barack Obama and those who share his leftist ideology, America is the primary source of evil in the world. Now that they are in power, we have a chance to see what the world would be like without the USA holding back the darkness that liberals tell us is light. It is not a pretty sight to see:

Islamic State militants have abducted at least 90 people from Assyrian Christian villages in northeastern Syria, a monitoring group that tracks violence in Syria said on Tuesday.

This gives an idea of what will happen to them:

The jihadist group Islamic State, or IS, burned alive on Saturday 43 people kidnapped in the western Iraqi province of Anbar, a security official told Efe.

The IS militants caged their hostages, who were mostly police and members of the pro-government Sunni militias called Salvation Councils, then set them on fire.

The radical group kidnapped the victims more than a week ago in the Al Baghdadi area of Anbar province.

Meanwhile, Obama spent last week canoodling with Muslim extremists at a spectacle intended to absolve Islam of the violence it inspires.

The horrors inflicted by the Islamic State are not limited to areas rendered vulnerable by Obama’s premature withdrawal of our troops from Iraq. From the beginning they have made it clear they will strike us where we live.

No worries. We have Jeh Johnson to protect us. The Obama money bundler turned DHS chief has settled on a strategy of not calling them Muslims and deploying social media.

Florist Barronelle Stutzman Takes Brave Stand Against Tyranny

Progressive authorities are getting no contrition from the florist whose “personal ruin” was authorized by a judge to punish her for not rejecting her Christian faith in favor of the gay agenda. Even in the Age of Hope & Change, some of us still have character:

A Washington florist who refused to provide flowers for a gay wedding rejected an offer from the state to settle a discrimination case by paying a $2,000 fine.

Barronelle Stutzman, a 70-year-old grandmother, wouldn’t provide flowers from her shop in Richland, Washington, for the 2013 wedding of Robert Ingersoll and Curt Freed.

When longtime customer Ingersoll came to Arlene’s Flowers and asked for the flowers, the devout Southern Baptist told him her ‘relationship with Jesus Christ’ wouldn’t allow her to do the wedding.

Her rejection led to multiple lawsuits, including one from Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson.

If the lawsuits are successful, Stutzman could be required to pay damages and legal fees that far exceed the attorney general’s offer to settle the matter.

In addition to the $2,000 fine, the settlement Stutzman rejected said if the florist chose to continue selling flowers for weddings she would have to sell the items to all couples, including same-sex couples.

In a letter to Ferguson, Stutzman wrote,

‘Washington’s constitution guarantees us “freedom of conscience in all matters of religious sentiment.”

‘I cannot sell that precious freedom.’

Better to make them take it by force, even if it means they will crush you. If enough people were capable of this sort of heroism, liberal fascism never would have progressed to the point of business owners being purposely compelled to violate their moral principles.

Decent people are under siege by fascistic degenerates.
