How do you know if a hate crime is a hoax? A sure indication is that it perfectly fits into the alternate reality liberals feel self-righteous about living in, but would be preposterous in the real reality. Take for example evil racists spray-painting “Vote Trump” on a black church and setting it on fire. In Liberal Land, the KKK would be responsible. On planet Earth, you know it was a black guy like Andrew McClinton:
Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, who is African-American, is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.
McClinton was arrested Wednesday. Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.
And, sadly, the hate hoaxing is all too common
Hell these bottom feeders even hoax on airplanes now
But, again, I remind you that, to the Left, truth is absolutely eaningless
Actress Lena Dunham is a professional idiot folks, do not try this at home. I hesitate to call Dunham an actor because, frankly, actors are talented and can do incredible things with that talent. Dunham, on the other hand, is famous because, uh, well, yeah, I can’t think of a valid reason either. Rather than being famous for acting ability, Dunham is famous for taking her clothes off on her show Girls, and pretending that is somehow artistic, or profound and no, it ain’t a good naked either. If you plan to check it out, bring eye bleach, and several vomit bags. But, today, in America, we celebrate buffoons, and malcontents, and idiots who talk to rocks
Woke celeb Lena Dunham sought solace in the Arizona wilderness this week as she works to overcome her post-election anxiety. She posted of photo on Instagram that shows her hiking in a fashionable sports bra and flashing a “true smile” while hiking in exclusive Sedona, Ariz., on Monday.
While Kansas State has not used those two words in response to whiny college students, they are pushing back against the little Stalinists
“The whole campus is a free speech area,” the K-State Office of General Counsel states in its October legal briefing, noting that as a public university, the school cannot and will not require anyone to register with the university prior to having a public demonstration or protest.
“As a general rule, there is no right to not be offended,” they point out, arguing that “if the government started shutting down speech that is offensive to some, it would end up shutting down all speech, because virtually everything can be offensive to some.”
“As the U.S. Supreme Court stated in 1989 in Texas v. Johnson: ‘If there is a bedrock principle underlying the First Amendment, it is that government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because it finds it offensive or disagreeable,’” the briefing notes.
“Everyone has their First Amendment rights so we’ve got to protect their rights whether we’re for or against the protest,” Lt. Bradli Millington, coordinator for support services at the K-State Police Department, told The Kansas State Collegian.
In fact, not only does the legal briefing affirm unequivocally that offensive speech is legally protected, the document even states that controversial remarks and robust debate “are expected and valued” on college campuses in our society, and are deserving of special protection because unpopular viewpoints are the most likely to be targeted for censorship.
AMEN! I wish every university would take this stance, and would tell every whiner who thinks they must never hear a different viewpoint to not let the door hit them on the way out! Here is to those whiners
The United Nations has a long history of being ineffective and, well left of reality. Consider some of the current member of the UN Human Rights Council. China, Communist China with its forced abortions, and limits on how many children Chinese couples may have, and other human rights violations
An estimated 500,000 people are currently enduring punitive detention without charge or trial, and millions are unable to access the legal system to seek redress for their grievances. Harassment, surveillance, house arrest, and imprisonment of human rights defenders are on the rise, and censorship of the Internet and other media has grown. Repression of minority groups, including Tibetans, Uighurs and Mongolians, and of Falun Gong practitioners and Christians who practice their religion outside state-sanctioned churches continues. While the recent reinstatement of Supreme People’s Court review of death penalty cases may result in lower numbers of executions, China remains the leading executioner in the world.
Cuba remains one of Latin America’s most politically repressive countries, according to international watchdog group Human Rights Watch (HRW). The group found that political dissidents who criticize the government routinely face criminal prosecution and that government officials use fear tactics including beatings, public shaming and threats of imprisonment to keep naysayers in check.
Reports of arbitrary arrests increased from 2,100 in 2010 to 3,600 in 2013, according to HRW’s 2013report, which also found that arrest orders are hardly ever presented during arrests and detainees may be held for several hours or even days without outside communication. Political prisoners are commonly denied parole after their minimum sentences are completed, the report found, and Cuba’s prisons are overcrowded and unclean, with prisoners who are often malnourished and suffer from illnesses.
Saudi Arabia’s discriminatory male guardianship system remains intact despite government pledges to abolish it. Under this system, ministerial policies and practices forbid women from obtaining a passport, marrying, traveling, or accessing higher education without the approval of a male guardian, usually a husband, father, brother, or son.
Authorities also fail to prevent some employers from requiring male guardians to approve the hiring of adult female relatives or some hospitals from requiring male guardian approval for certain medical procedures for women. In February, a member of the Senior Council of Scholars, the highest state body for the interpretation of Islamic law, issued a fatwa stating that women are not allowed to visit a male doctor without their male guardians. They are not allowed to expose parts of the body with the exception of a medical emergency. All women remain banned from driving in Saudi Arabia.
The entire list of nations is here Many of the members are anything but defenders of human rights. And yes, women are likely not exempt from the degradations and mistreatment. But, some “concerned” UN Sstaff members ae saying enough is enough! They have taken a stand and started an onlone petition to reconsider the UN’s choice of Wonder Woman as Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls. Wait, what? They cannot be serious can they? I mean with so many real issues with the UN to be outraged over, they lose it over Wonder Woman.
An online petition by concerned UN staff members calls for Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to reconsider the choice on the grounds that the character is culturally insensitive, overtly sexualized — and not real.
“Having strong (living, breathing) female role models is a critical aspect of the goal of empowerment of women and girls,” the petition reads, in part. “If the United Nations would like a list of incredible extraordinary women that would formidably carry out this role, we could surely be able to come up with a list from which the Secretary-General could choose.”
The petitioners also pointed to Wonder Woman’s questionable garb as making her an unsuitable UN ambassador.“Although the original creators may have intended Wonder Woman to represent a strong and independent ‘warrior’ woman with a feminist message, the reality is that the character’s current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit with an American flag motif and knee high boots,” the petition notes.
