Leftism is an Ideology for the intolerant

And by intolerant, I mean they wish to grind to dust anything they deem offensive, you know, really bad stuff, like hoop skirts

Previous Rule 5 subject Blake Lively Surrenders To Gawker, Agrees To Delete Her Lifestyle And Fashion Site

In an interview with Vogue published today, actress and model Blake Lively revealed that she will be deleting her lifestyle site Preserve on October 9. The site has been decried again andagain for celebrating antebellum fashion and decor, and it seems like the criticism has pushed her to shuttering the site just a year after its launch.

Lively’s announcement has already spurred an article with this gleefulheadline from Gawker (emphasis added): “Blake Lively Finally Deletes Her Antebellum-Obsessed Lifestyle Site Preserve.” Gawker‘s triumphant tone on the news of Preserve‘s demise follows a year-long string of stories skewering Lively for — gasp — praising Southern culture.

Man, you can’t have that. You might start thinking southern folk are human or something, and you might have to grant them the right to think, speak, and maybe even vote. Who knows where that might lead?

Last fall, Lively’s site featured a fall fashion photo spread called “Allure of Antebellum.” Naturally, there was a social media firestorm, saying that the site glorified slavery and oppression.

Alongside photos of a woman dressed in clothes available for purchase on the site ran the following text:

“The term Southern Belle came to fruition during the Antebellum period (prior to the Civil War), acknowledging women with an inherent social distinction who set the standards for style and appearance. These women epitomized Southern hospitality with a cultivation of beauty and grace, but even more with a captivating and magnetic sensibility… While at times depicted as coy, these belles of the ball, in actuality could command attention with the ease of a hummingbird relishing a pastoral bloom.”

Keep in mind folks, nothing Lively is doing praises, or condones slavery, all her site is about is fashion, and lifestyle, not politics, not any endorsement of anything evil, or wrong. Yet this woman has been ravaged by the radical vermin of the Left. I wish I could say something to Blake Lively to stop her deleting this site. As Fritz explains, we MUST not surrender one inch to these Totalitarians

The reason that SJWs keep pushing such ridiculous shit is because it works. Each incremental attack on American culture as it exists is a win for them. We must resist at all costs.


And the latest thing to be banned? The Kiss Cam

Syracuse University, which years ago caved to PC by changing the name of its sports teams from Orangemen, to The Orange so as not to offend Feminuts, has now gone even nuttier

Nothing escapes the judgment of our politically correct overlords — not even kiss cams:

Syracuse University has put the kiss cam in the deepfreeze.

A long tradition at sporting events across the country, the kiss cam projects the image of two people sitting next to each other in the stands on the stadium scoreboard—often inside a heart—and holds the shot until they kiss.

Earlier this month, a man who attended a Syracuse football game wrote a letter to the editor of a local newspaper, saying the kiss cam encourages male entitlement and sexual assault. Since then: no kiss cam at the Carrier Dome.

Oh Good Freaking grief, is there no end to the asininity of the Left? Oh, I know, silly question. These freaks will not stop until every move we make is pre-approved by some panel of Leftists somewhere

WTF is wrong with you Vols?

Every Tennessee Volunteer should hang their head in shame

Now the University of Tennessee has gone full moonbat:

The University of Tennessee has told its staff and students to stop calling each other ‘he’, ‘she’, ‘him’ and ‘her’ – and to start referring to one another with terms like ‘xe’, ‘zir’ and ‘xyr’ instead.

The Knoxville branch of the public university, which has 27,400 students, sent a memo round to its members filled with unusual new parts of speech to avoid referring to anybody’s gender.

According to a gay rights official at the university, the new language regime will make the university ‘welcoming and inclusive’ and stop people feeling ‘marginalized’.

Oh for fucks sake! BTW here is the WOMAN, I think that is a woman, that wrote these guidelines. So please blame HER, because SHE did it. SHE is to blame, it is all HER doing! SHE is the buffoon responsible

What a full grown Marxist Moron looks like
What a full grown Marxist Moron looks like

This is what type of hypersensitive, self-absorbed world she would make for us all. This is what she thinks makes a better world

Donna Braquet, who runs the university’s [Pervert] Pride Center, wrote the guidelines, which are accompanied with a long table demonstrating how to replace the regular parts of speech.

She also advises staff members not to call roll in class, and to instead greet every student by asking them to announce their name and pronoun of preference.

Pronoun of preference? Honestly who thinks up this garbage?

The Left is, and always has been the greatest advocates for censorship

Via 357 Magnum

Ever feel like you are living in a universe slightly out of plumb? We are, almost, living in the world of Fahrenheit 451 as envisioned by Ray Bradbury. Burns the Books!.

Fire-Captain Beatty, in my novel Fahrenheit 451, described how the books were burned first by the minorities, each ripping a page or a paragraph from the book, then that, until the day came when the books were empty and the minds shut and the library closed forever.

No one can be made to be uncomfortable. Campus “feminists” of today need a “safe space” – like the old Victorian Ladies’ Lounge complete with fainting couches – if anyone even wants to talk about a subject they find uncomfortable. Somewhere Susan B Anthony is weeping.

ISIS smashes history they don’t like in the Mideast. People are clamoring to do the same thing in this country. (Confederate Monuments anyone?) Just because you don’t like something, doesn’t mean you can’t learn something from it. History is not comfortable. The human race isn’t always about peace and happiness. But ignorance of history, is not a good thing.

We have, as a society elevated feelings above all else. We have become a society that celebrates and even rewards whining. In doing so, we have also become a society that punishes those who tell the truth because the truth can hurt.  We must not allow Nativity scenes, or monuments to the Ten Commandments because it might make a radical Atheist feel excluded. We must not allow anything that offends, or that might offend a Liberal, offending Conservatives is not only still OK, it is celebrated now. Apparently some people’s feelings are more equal than others I guess.

I guess jokes by Conservatives are not “cutting edge” enough for snotty ET!

So the phony outrage of the day is that Clint Eastwood dared tell a joke, and a funny one, about Bruce, ah Caitlyn Jenner

Clint Eastwood might just want to stay off stage for… well, ever.

After staying out of the spotlight since that time he talked to an empty chair like a crazy person at the 2012 Republican National Convention, the four-time Oscar-winning actor/director stirred controversy yet again on Saturday.

This time, the 85-year-old “American Sniper” director ruffled feathers when he made a joke at the expense of Caitlyn Jenner while appearing onstage at Spike TV’s 2015 Guys’ Choice awards.

According to USA Today, the joke — which Spike TV has said they will cut when the awards show airs — was made when Eastwood was introducing “San Andreas” star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

According to reports, Eastwood introduced Johnson by comparing him to other famous athletes, such as “Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody…”

What is the issue here? Jenner is front page news right now, and was once the greatest athlete in the world, so why is it out of bounds for Eastwood or anyone to make such a joke? Especially while at the “Guys Choice Awards”. PC is about the last thing you would expect to hear at that awards show. But, it seems Spike cannot surrender to the hyper sensitive Lefties fast enough.

Spike TV Senior Vice President of Communications David Schwartz told USA Today that the network will remove Eastwood’s comment in the version of the show that will air on June 18.

I would bet that Jenner would have laughed at the joke, as would most normal folks. Of course, Leftism is an ideology for the abnormal, so………..

The latest most RAAAAACIST thing ever? The city of Buffalo

Grievance mongering goes nuclear grade

A Native American group is calling on “Buffalo, New York” to change its racist, insensitive name.

Pundit Press reported:

Mark Beasley, a member of the Navajo Nation, has started a petition for Buffalo, NY to change its “racist and offensive” name. According to Beasley, he speaks for his “Native American colleagues.”

Beasley writes in his petition that “Buffalo is the name of the animal that was driven almost to extinction by the non-Native forces in order to annihilate and drive out my ancestors from the American landscape.”

Further, “Within only a few years from the beginning of the campaign, all Native nations were driven off their lands and into reservations, where we have prior and since been unduly subjugated and and [sic] exposed to genocidal horrors unimaginable to the rest of the world and throughout history.”

For these reasons, Beasley writes, Buffalo “should change their offensive and racist names containing the word “Buffalo.””

This is what America gets for rewarding so many whiners and malcontents.

Sweden tackles its rape crisis by renaming RAAAAACIST birds!

Sweden is now the rape capitol of the West, and they are, apparently more concerned with more “tolerant” bird names.

Via NRO:

Sweden’s Ornithological Society has changed the names of a bunch of birds because they were concerned that the old names sounded racist.

For example: Any bird whose name contained the word “neger” (negro) had that word changed to the word “svart” (black), according to an article in The Local.

“We kept getting more and more questions from translators of Swedish TV programs and books wanting to know what exactly different bird names were or meant, so we decided to compile a list and while we were doing that we decided to change the names of any birds that could have stirred up a debate,” said Anders Wirdheim, information officer at Sweden’s Ornothological Society.

The bird previously known as “Zigenarfågel” which means “gypsy bird” will now be called “hoatzin,” even though that English word is already used to describe a type of tropical pheasant found in swamps and forests.

Good grief, Nuclear Grade Stupidity

My Super Sunday predictions

Well, here w are, the culmination of another football season. Super Sunday, Seahawks and Patriots, a Katy Perry halftime show, fireworks, way too much pregame show, and yes, the commercials. So what do I think will happen? Hmmmm

The Pats will win because of better coaching, and because Tom Brady knows it might be his last shot at ring #4. And they will win because they will be agitated by all the morons pretending that they are “cheats”. Back in 2006, the NFL, made a decision to allow each team to brings its own footballs to each game. The NFL had to know that the quarterbacks, who all are very particular about the feel, weight, and inflation level of the football would use this rule, and stretch this rule, and bend this rule. The NFL had to know. So, I think it safe to say that most, if not every NFL team likely plays fast and loose with that rule, and thus the amount of air in the balls. That does not shock me. What doers shock me is that anyone is “shocked” that this might be the case. I mean really now. In a game where all teams will do anything to win a championship, why is anyone surprised that rules are bent? Who are the idiots that needed those dots connected for them?

Frankly, I am pulling for the Pats ONLY because of Deflategate, which is a non-story driven by the drama queens in the sports media. Frankly, most of the sports journalism today sounds more like high school girls gossiping to me than actual journalists breaking stories. (But, enough about ESPN’s First Take with Screamin A Smith and failed shock jock Skip Bayless. The show at least has Cari Champion who has a body to lust after, so I guess it is not a complete loss.) Then there are the press conferences, where sports “reporters” ask stupid questions that no actual sports fans care about then pat themselves on the back for asking “tough” questions, EGADS! In fact, I find football so much better when I ignore the useless press conferences with the scripted question and scripted answers. Frankly, I would prefer watching my neighbors Chevy rust than take in any sports press conference.

So, I am not taking in the press conferences, or the incessant pre-game babbling from former players saying the same things repeatedly. And I will skip the halftime show most likely. Katy Perry is quite attractive yes,  but her music is not in my wheelhouse and to be honest I will be watching the Super Bowl to watch, wait for it, FOOTBALL! I do not need a halftime show, or a three-day long pregame show. I love football, and this game should be very good.

Of course there are the commercials which used to be great. I say used to be because in recent years the ads all seem tame and boring because all the corporations are afraid of offending some whiner or another. Seriously, where have the funny spots gone? I guess PC killed them, Hell it has about killed all free expression so why not commercials too right?

And to top it all off NBC is broadcasting the game, which means we might get a lecture in Liberalism from noted anti-self-defense midget Bob Costas at some point. OH boy!

So, enjoy the game, and Katy Perry’s body, which is nice even if most of her music sucks, and heck you might even see a decent commercial, which will draw outrageous outrage from some whiny group somewhere. 

Students suspended for a picture taken in their home?

Zero Tolerance? Or Naked Statism?

That bi-polar, Queen of Hearts, full-speed-ahead blind fury and absolutism is the mark of the modern educator, and this institutionalized insanity is running rampant in Massachusetts, where a pair of awkward teenagers have been suspended for daring to be talked about by their peers for a Facebook photo.

Two high school students in Massachusetts were suspended and face possible expulsion after posting a homecoming photo online of themselves holding airsoft rifles.

Tito Velez, 15, and his girlfriend Jamie Pereira posed with the airsoft rifles inside his home before heading to the Bristol Plymouth Regional Technical School homecoming dance in Taunton, a local NBC affiliate reported.

“This isn’t dangerous. … You can’t kill someone with it,” Tito said. “We didn’t shoot anyone. We were pointing them at the floor. Everything was on safe, no batteries, they never left the house. We never took them to school. That’d be stupid.”

Airsoft rifles only shoot plastic pellets and are not intended to be lethal. Still, the two were suspended Monday morning after posting the photo on Facebook, and administrators are considering expulsion, the station said.

“They created a disruption, in our opinion, and that’s what they’re being punished for,” said superintendent Richard Gross.

The issue wasn’t the gun replicas themselves, but the “Homecoming 2014″ caption attached to the photo, the superintendent said.

Where does this crap stop? When does it stop? When parents enough parents say NO MORE! It stops when people start getting fired for this blatant abuse of power, and of children. This must stop. It has now become a case of a school punishing kids for what they do at home. And understand this is more of the War on Guns This is about intimidation, and re-education, and it MUST STOP! We are allowing our liberties to be taken by fanatics and bullies. And it makes me ill that more parents are not standing up and demanding an end to such abuse. I promise you, if enough parents showed up at the school, lawyers in tow, and demanded this be fixed, it would be fixed damn quick!

The Stupidity of the Left knows no bounds

Good Freaking Grief! We seem to have given abject stupidity and ineptitude places of honor. Mike McDaniel is as fed up as I am with zero tolerance

I’d really like to think this kind of zero-tolerance lunacy is confined to the eastern United States. To be sure, it may reasonably be expected there, but I’m afraid it’s a contagion rivaling Ebola in virulence. Unlike with Ebola, however, I’m equally sure Mr. Obama will not be sending 3000 troops to Connecticut to “fight” this particular disease. NBCconnecticut.com has the story: 

Tuesday, Sep 16, 2014 • Updated at 4:19 PM EDT

JFK Middle School in Southington was on lockdown Tuesday after a student in a military-style jacket prompted concerns from staff members, who called police to report a suspicious person at the school.

The middle school, located at 1071 South Main Street, was placed on lockdown around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

Police said a school employee spotted a suspicious man in the hallway and described him as standing 5 feet 7 inches tall and wearing a green military-type jacket.

The school sent an alert to parents informing them of the incident as officers canvassed the area and searched the school grounds.

Whoa there buckaroo! A “green military-type jacket”?! They locked down the school because a person wearing a green military-type jacket looked “suspicious?” Read on:

According to police, a student matching the staff member’s description was found in a classroom and identified as the person in question.

The student did not pose a threat and, after completing a secondary search, police gave the all clear. The lockdown was lifted shortly before 1 p.m.

A second alert from Southington schools said police did not find anything that was cause for concern but conducted a thorough search for the buildings and grounds.

Well of course. What a close call! I’m surprised the entire community wasn’t sent to the bomb shelters. Imagine the pandemonium if the student has been wearing camouflage trousers too! That would have been good for the callout of at least one SWAT team and strip searches of every student and teacher.

Again, Good Freaking Grief!

What could possibly go wrong?

A clusterfuck of epic proportions is born

Wake Forest University kicked off the fall 2014 semester by instituting a campus-wide online system that has the potential to restrict free speech by allowing students and staff to anonymously file reports on any occurrences they deem biased or hateful.

Known as the Bias Incident Report system, the online form does not specify the criteria for filing a report, nor does it explicitly define the word “bias.” Instead, students are pressured to submit a report anytime they believe they are encountering an incident of hate or bias — potentially opening the floodgates for students to report incidents without cause.

The report form lists a bevy of reasons an incident could be perceived as biased, some of which include: citizenship, gender identity, national origin, pregnancy, religion, sexual orientation and economic background. The form even offers an option to upload a video, photos or audio of the occurrence.

The guidelines as to what “bias” relies heavily on student emotion — when a student feels at all offended by someone’s differing political or religious ideologies, a file is reported and is required to be officially investigated by university officials

Just another all-out assault on freedom of speech

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

For anyone foolish enough to cheer the attacks on the Redskins by the U.S. Patent Office

First here is the story

The decision this past week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to rescind federal trademark protections for the Redskins may ultimately tip the balance in the controversy over the 80-year-old name of Washington’s football team. If so, that would be a shame. Not because there’s insufficient reason to consider the name “disparaging to Native Americans,” as the patent office determined. Many of us recoil at the reference to skin color as a team identity. The problem is that the Redskins case is just the latest example of a federal agency going beyond its brief to inappropriately insert itself in social or political debates.

Few people would have expected the future of the Redskins to be determined by an obscure panel in a relatively small government agency. Yet the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board showed little restraint in launching itself into this heated argument — issuing an opinion that supports calls for change from powerful politicians, including President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). The board had at its disposal a ridiculously ambiguous standard that allows the denial of a trademark if it “may disparage” a “substantial composite” of a group at the time the trademark is registered.

Now, you might disagree with what Johnathan Turley writes. You might think to yourself that the name is “offensive” to some, so the trademark protection should be rescinded. You might not think this is not another example of the government over stepping its rightful role. Or you might think that this over stepping is not your problem. You might think those things, but, what will you think if the next target of the government over reach is you, or your business? What will you think if the government decides to play thought police with you? Think on that awhile.

BBC: You Go “Girl”

Once the media starts banning words…………

The British Broadcasting Corporation censored a completely innocuous word in a recent documentary, just in case people would find it offensive.

The word: “girl.”

In a documentary ahead of the Commonwealth Games, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland in July, host Mark Beaumont interviewed 19 year-old judo champion Cynthia Rahming and her family.

Rahming and Beaumont grappled, with the fighter taking the 31 year-old host to the mat.

“I am not sure I can live that down — being beaten by a 19-year-old girl,” he said in the documentary.

The episode originally aired in April, but in a re-run, the BBC removed the line containing the apparently offensive description of a young female.

The GIRL, did you read that BBC? I said GIRL, was not offended by being called GIRL at all. But, of course, the thing about the Left is you don’t have to know what offends you, they will tell you when to be offended.
