Ever wonder why I say Good Freaking Grief so often? This is why!
An RA at the University of Kansas was advised against incorporating an image of a gorilla into a jungle-themed floor decoration because the animal apparently represents “a very masculine image.”
Even female gorillas? What if the gorilla depicted identifies as transgender? What if the gorillas is a feminist fighting the Patriarchy? Or a Lesbian gorilla? What if a male gorilla is depicted using the ladies restroom? Would that gorilla be “too masculine”? Or would it be a Social Justice Warrior Gorilla? Ah do the questions ever end?
In an email obtained by Campus Reform, a university employee with the school’s student housing department writes to a resident advisor, who wishes to remain anonymous, to explain to him that he cannot use an image of a gorilla for a routine floor decoration.
“I think it would be best if your floor chose a different theme animal to be more inclusive,” Assistant Complex Director Dale Morrow wrote in an email at the start of this academic year. “First, gorillas represent a very masculine image, and I feel that this would not be inclusive to all of our residents on that floor.”
Ah yes, the old we have to exclude some ideas, people, and species apparently to truly be “inclusive”.
Oh those Leftists, they love words like solidarity. They love to throw their full support behind movements and causes for “justice” and “equality. They love, in short to dive headlong into hashtags, and causes without knowing any facts whatsoever. The Left does not value truth, facts are generally inconvenient to them so they are dismissed. Even when a cause is discredited or a narrative totally destroyed, they hold on to their talking pints like a stubborn child.
Take, for example, the causes of the moment in America Police shooting Black men. Rather than taking these shootings case by case, and evaluating evidence as it comes to light, Leftists react immediately, and cling to their talking points. Talking points usually crafted by propagandists and opportunists to cash in personally. For example, take the shooting of Erick Scott in Charlotte North Carolina. No one can say for certain what happened, no one can say the shooting was justified or not justified. An investigation must be done. Witnesses must be interviewed, video evidence must be examined, and forensic evidence must be weighed. After the investigation is complete then, and only then will we all know for certain. But, that is not what the Left does. They immediately launch into protest/outrage/social justice mode. They know everything they need to know. A Black man was shot by police in America so it must be police brutality, cold blooded murder, and of course, RAAAACISM!
And if the evidence supports the case that this shooting was justified? The same Leftists will turn their blind eyes to such facts. Again, facts are not welcome, critical thinking? Bah! Waiting for evidence? The don’t need no stinkin’ evidence! Just ask the students at NC State
NC State totally stands in solidarity with things they really do not know about
Would that be in solidarity for those who protested peaceably, or those who looted stores, broke windows, damaged cars, assaulted people, tried to throw a reporter in a burning trash can, etc?
(WTVD) Students at NC State joined the growing protest movement over the police shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott, in Charlotte.
About 300 students staged a die-in at the student union on Friday evening.
It began with a gathering on Wolf Plaza. Demonstrators arrived wearing all black. Then, in unity with the demonstrators in Charlotte, they marched in to the student union and played dead. The die-in serving as a symbolic protest over what they see as the latest case of police brutality.
Scott was told to drop the gun or some variation at least 12 times. His wife kept repeating “Keith don’t do it.”
Again, it is all drama folks. Being outraged, offended, aggrieved, and most of all being a victim is now the highest achievement a Leftist can obtain.
It takes a special kind of stupid, yes, I know stupid is a harsh word, but in this case it applies, to be Sally Kohn, who truly believes that silencing certain opinions is somehow diversity!
At a University of Missouri free speech symposium, CNN commentator Sally Kohn said conservatives fighting for free speech on college campuses are afraid of multiculturalism.
Kohn added that because conservatives can no longer criticize multiculturalism while remaining socially acceptable, they have taken on the campus speech fight because it is a way to “attack diverse principles.”
When Kirsten Powers countered Kohn with reason, and facts, Kohn went full blown propagandist
Powers countered by citing examples of liberal bias on college campuses, such as the uproar that is often encountered by both liberal and conservative students who diverge from the liberal orthodoxy, and specifically mentioned Christina Hoff Sommers, an American Enterprise Institute scholar whosespeech at Oberlin College was disrupted by numerous protesters, some of whom set up a makeshift “safe space.”
Powers also cited the case of a feminist professor at the University of California-Santa Barbara attacking a pro-life demonstrator because she felt threatened by the display, as well as that of a libertarian Muslim student at the University of Michigan whose satirical newspaper article led to demands for his firing because people felt “unsafe.”
Kohn retorted that both her and Powers’ white, upper-middle-class upbringings cloud their vision on the issue, claiming that speech that may not be threatening to them may nonetheless be threatening to someone else.
“Feelings are valid,” she mused. “I’m never going to argue with people’s feelings.”
Unless it is a Conservative’s feelings of course. Powers tried to use reason again, and again, Kohn let her true Statist show
Powers next spoke of the chilling effect that occurs when unpopular viewpoints are silent, arguing that people do not learn when everybody is like them.
Kohn, however, believes this is largely a good thing, especially in the case of conservatives who do not hold progressive social views, saying, “If they feel like they can no longer speak against positive social change, good.”
Well, there we are folks. Kohn is so worried about “feelings” except those that she disagrees with
Once again, Powers insisted that diversity of thought and diversity of ideas are just as important as any other type of diversity, but Kohn refused to concede the point, arguing that some ideas are less deserving of protection than others.
“They think [diversity] is dumbing down humanity, or the greatness and exceptionalism of America,” Kohn said. “I’m happy that’s under assault.”
Ah, yes, drink in that diversity and tolerance folks. the fact is Kohn advocates for forced silence of diverse views. She envisions herself as educated, and smart, yet she is so foolish as to not be able to grasp that she pushes for a climate that crushed liberty and squashes diversity.
Awww she is offended by a hat, free speech is too tough for her. Note that the girl in this video is seriously uninformed, and highly bigoted and thinks nothing of trying to punish a fellow student for simply expressing views she disagrees with. This is what Liberalism, which once was how Jefferson Madison, and other founders were properly called, has degenerated into. This buffoon actually represents the things she thinks she fears
Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly are still trying to milk their gun control crusade for all the publicity it is worth. They recently put on their shocked faces and blasted Donald Trump for demanding that Hillary Clinton ask her body guards to disarm since she is so anti-gun
Former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband Mark Kelly lashed out at Donald Trump on Friday for saying that Hillary Clinton’s bodyguards should be “disarmed.”
“Tonight we have even more evidence of just how dangerously unfit Donald Trump is to be president of this great country,” Giffords and Kelly, both Clinton supporters, said in a statement.
“He is reckless, irresponsible and unworthy of the office he seeks
To be clear, Trump has suggested, and I believe rightfully so, that Hillary Clinton would do everything she could to erase the right to keep and bear arms. His suggestion at his rally was that if Hillary is so vehemently anti-gun, then she should ask her security to disarm. In other words, Trump was asking for consistency from Clinton. Imagine that! Consistency from a Leftist? Never gonna happen. Leftism is an ideology of inconsistency, consistency being highly inconvenient to the Left.
The Cult of Gun Control, of which Giffords and Kelly are prominent members, lie on a regular basis about guns, “gun violence”, and self-defense with guns. The fact is that over the last quarter century, Americans have been buying firearms. Millions of Americans carry firearms for self-defense, and during this time, violent crime, homicides, homicide by firearms, and accidental gun deaths have all steadily decreased. These facts are not up for debate. Yet the Giffords, Kellys and Clintons of the world berate us with lies about the number of mass shootings, which they grossly over inflate, and the dangers of “assault rifles” “high-capacity magazines”, and “weapons of war”. The media, of course, exploits any mass shooting, and ignores the hundreds of thousands of times Americans use firearms in self-defense every year.
It is not that they do not know the truth, they do. It is that they believe lying to get their ends, is OK. Again, the Left does not value truth. The Cult of Gun Control, is most decidedly of the Left, so telling lies, or manufacturing false statistics to panic uniformed Americans is perfectly OK with Michael Bloomberg and Moms Demand Action mouthpieces like Shannon Watts. So, I would say bravo to Trump for actually demanding Clinton put her money where her mouth is. Hillary Clinton is guarded by armed men and women, and she should be. Nothing wrong with security. I would find no issue with Hillary herself packing heat for her own protection. But she should stop demanding steps that would make it harder for Americans to own or carry firearms for their own security. Until she does that, then she is simply another gun control hypocrite. A hypocrite who recognizes the importance of armed protection yet seeks to deny it for average Americans.
