Frankly, I would have told her to take a flying leap at a rolling can of vienna sausages

A restaurant advertised that they have bacon, a whiny Muslim got her feelings hurt so, the business took down the sign and is “reaching out” to her? Good Grief!

A sign on a lamp post at the bottom of the Winooski Circle displayed the words “Yield Sneakers Bacon” until Friday morning. The bistro owners took it down.

It started with a post from one woman who wrote that the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork. She said as a Muslim she is personally offended by it.

The owners of Sneakers spoke to WPTZ. They say they’ve reached out to the individual who made the post and proactively took the sign down. They also say they regret any harm caused by the sign, and that their goal was never to cause stress or bad feelings.

Of course they have now offended MANY more people by kissing the arse of this self-entitled whiner, and they have emboldened her, and other whiners to bully any business that “offends” them. This woman is a bully, and when you cave to bullies, you make them bully even more. And, please tell me what good “reaching out” to this miscreant does anyone? She did not like the sign, so what? What if she now demands the restaurant stop serving bacon? Will they reach out again? What if a vegetarian demands they stop selling beef? After all this business has now declared that they are going to do whatever they can NOT to offend. Let those flood gates open.

Powerful words that show how Leftism is working to silence speech

Donald Douglas has the news, not surprising, that the MTV Music Awards were going to have plenty of Leftist race baiting over Ferguson. After all, what better sums up the intellectual wasteland that IS Leftism more than an awards show with uninformed “artists” Parroting Leftist talking points about a matter they likely have not the first actual clue about? But, the REAL gem in this is the silencing affect of “tolerance”

At the Washington Post, “MTV to turn Video Music Awards spotlight on Ferguson“:

Last year, Miley Cyrus’s twerking, teddy-bear-filled performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards set off fierce arguments about race and cultural appropriation. This year, MTV is hoping to use its awards ceremony to start a different kind of conversation. Before and during the show, the network will be airing somber public service announcements about the ongoing standoff between law enforcement and the citizens of Ferguson, Mo., in the wake of the August 9 shooting death of teenager Michael Brown.

MTV’s spots are part of a larger campaign, Look Different, that the network developed in conjunction with organizations including the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP, the National Council of La Raza and the Southern Poverty Law Center. MTV has a long history of activist-oriented youth programming, and the Look Different program developed out of a paradox that MTV President Stephen Friedman told me he saw showing up in MTV polling.

“Eighty percent of our audience believes that bias is at the root of racism and prejudice,” Friedman said. “But when cultural explosions like Trayvon Martin, or the recent death on Staten Island, or what is now happening in Ferguson occur, our audience often feels paralyzed to discuss the issues.”

The reason? A good-intentioned schema for how to treat other people fairly that ultimately makes it more difficult to acknowledge unfairness or difference when it shows up anyway.

“Ironically, part of the problem is that this generation was taught to be color-blind,” Friedman told me. “As a result, they feel like they’re going to step on a land mine if they say the wrong thing. In fact, our research has shown that fully 70 percent of our white audience grew up not talking about race in their households. They’re striving for fairness and equality and often just aren’t sure how to to proceed.”

In short, the Left has effectively intimidated any White person from feeling free to speak, unless they say wring thing. So, they are left with either being silent, or just regurgitating talking points they KNOW will be safe. This is EXACTLY what the Left desires

Atheists hear high school football players praying with coaches, outbreak of GODitis ensues

So, very tired of these bullies and their dirt bag lawyers

Hundreds of people gathered in Gainesville, Ga., to defend religious liberty Wednesday after an atheist group demanded a local high school remove religion from its football team.

The American Humanist Association sent a letter to officials at Chestatee High School Tuesday, threatening to sue if the football coaches don’t quit praying with the team, and if all biblical or religious messages are not removed from team documents, Fox News reports.

More than 200 people showed up for a prayer rally on the Chestatee football field Wednesday to protest the letter.

“We have received reports that CHS coaches have joined players in prayer while standing in a circle, hands interlocked,” the letter stated, according to Fox News. The group, writing on behalf of an unidentified resident, also complained about a banner, written by cheerleaders, that reads “Iron Sharpens Iron, Proverbs 21:17,” and that the team workout schedule references a verse in Galatians.

To me, reading the First Amendment makes a clear case here. 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

OK, let’s see. The coaches, and schools are NOT Congress, they are NOT making ANY LAWS creating a State Church. But they ARE freely exercising their right to practice their religion. So, what is the problem here? Oh yes, that’s right, these Atheists are leftists, and they are OFFENDED! And Leftism IS an ideology for the narcissistic, so therefore everyone else must cave to the narcissistic Leftist bullies or else!

National Guard not allowed to receive award from an evil church

PC, and more PC!

Citing federal regulations, the Missouri National Guard has refused to show up for an hour-long meet-and-greet with kids at a small Baptist church in the rural southwest corner of the state.

The kerfuffle went down during this summer’s vacation Bible school at Bible Baptist Church in Carthage, Mo., reports Fox News.

Vacation Bible school is sort of a rite of passage in the region — as common locally in the summertime as fireworks on the Fourth of July and sticky, sunny days.

For this year’s version, part of the Bible Baptist Church’s theme was “God’s Rescue Squad.” So, on Monday, some paramedics stopped by. On Tuesday, it was firefighters. On Wednesday, it was some lawmen and K-9 dogs from the Jasper County sheriff’s department.

Members of the Missouri National Guard were scheduled for a Thursday appearance (in a Humvee), but they failed to show up because, they said, federal regulations prevent military activities that could appear to endorse any religious or sectarian faction.

The War on American Culture rolls on

Good Freaking Grief! Now Thomas causing Racial Obsession Syndrome outbreaks

There are no words to define such rampant stupidity

I think we’re reaching the pinnacle of liberal PC insanity.

Thomas the Tank Engine had to shut the hell up to save children everywhere – Guardian

There are many terrible children’s programs through which parents must suffer during their child’s young life. For every Sesame Street, there is an annoying Caillou or an acid-trippy Yo Gabba Gabba. But Thomas and Friends is – or was – the one show with enough subversive messages to make me turn it off for good. [...]

But there was one particular episode that caused me to put the brakes on Thomas for good. It revolved around James, a red engine who is described in the opening credits as “vain but lots of fun.” (Wait, it’s OK to be vain if you can show others a good time occasionally? Great – that’s going in my Parenting 101 book.) In the episode “Tickled Pink”, poor vain James, is ordered by Topham Hat to get a new coat of paint. But while James has only had an undercoat of pink slathered on, Topham Hatt interrupts and demands that James go pick up Hatt’s granddaughter and deliver her and her friends to a birthday party right now.

James is mortified that he has to travel while pink and proceeds to hide from all the other trains along the way. When he’s caught, the other trains – including Thomas – viciously laugh and mock him.

“What are you doing James? You’re a big pink steamie,” says Diesel, the bad-boy engine. (For the record, all the “villains” on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines. I’d like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke – and they are all pumping out smoke – it’s not hard to make the leap into the race territory.)

But once James gets back on the rails and picks up Granddaughter Hatt and her friends, all seemingly ends well because the girls love pink.

Well guess what? It’s not OK. You think a little boy watching Thomas is going to file away the lesson that pink is OK for boys? No, what kids remember is that James was laughed at, cruelly, over and over again, because he looked different and was clad in a “girly” pink color.

The Lefts ongoing obsession with race

Racial Obsession Syndrome strikes again

A star high school athlete in rural Marshalltown, Iowa has been suspended for three football games this fall because he posted a social media image of himself enthusiastically festooned from head to toe in white clothing during school spirit week. In the photo, he made the letter “W” with his hands — which in this case stands for white.

The student is Blair Van Staalduine, reports Des Moines NBC affiliate WHO-TV.

The student’s parents say the the principal of Marshalltown High School called Van Staalduine a racist after concluding that his hand signal was a white pride symbol.

The parents have now responded to the suspension and the charge that their son is a racist by threatening to sue.

The school colors at Marshalltown High appear to be red, white and blue. Van Staalduine wore white because school officials had asked members of his class to wear white during school spirit week festivities.

“The actual school chose the colors that each grade would be wearing,” Cathy Van Staalduine explained. “Juniors wore white. So Blair, of course, being active in the school, dressed from head to toe in white.”

She noted emphatically that the “W” sign was for the color her son was assigned.

“Blair says if they were wearing orange, they would have done an ‘O,’” she said.

This is a case of being preemptively offended. The principal knows someone is going to be offended, so, they preempt the offense by declaring this kid a RAAAAACIST, and offensive. The Left used to wait for someone to actually be offended before going into meltdown mode. Now they just go into meltdown mode automatically I hope the parents sue and sue and sue some more. This kind of idiocy needs to stop.

Bandemonium! Cakes declared EVIL by schools in Seattle

Good Grief!

A school district in the suburbs of Seattle has outlawed birthday cakes and other birthday sweets from all elementary school parties.

The ban is part of a broader set of wellness and nutrition policies by the Edmonds School District, where officials are blaming new federal wellness guidelines, reports Seattle CBS affiliate KIRO.

According to school district officials, the new federal wellness guidelines require schools to scrutinize what children are eating.

Soon all children will be forced to live in bubbles, and fed only Moochelle approved I suppose
