“Climate change is a civil rights issue,” Reverend Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, told lawmakers on the committee on Wednesday morning. Lennox also referred to tackling global warming as the “lunch counter moment for the 21st century.”
“When I think of climate change, I don’t think in terms of green. I think in terms of black and brown,” California Rep. Nanette Barragán said during Energy and Commerce hearing.
McDonald’s should ban plastic toys in children’s Happy Meals, the Environment Minister has said, as she called for companies to make “symbolic changes” to show they are cutting down on single-use plastics.
Amid more player and pundit backlash over the NFL’s new “no kneeling” policy, Survey Monkey asked Americans how they felt about the league’s attempt to put the divisive National Anthem protests behind them. What they learned is that the league has the support of the majority of Americans — and the more die-hard the NFL fan, the more pro-kneeling ban they are.
Yep she looks triggered. Good thing she can’t get up and attack you.
On May 31st, I was denied entry into McMaster’s Pulse Fitness Gym and Centre.
When I asked why, a staff member politely told me, “We don’t let anyone wear sleeveless shirts in our gyms.”
At first, I laughed. What a stupid policy to enforce in a gym during the summer months. It’s hot as hell.
The staff member was totally serious, though. He explained to me that they enforce the policy because other people – namely, women and fat people – have body image problems.
Ellison proudly cited the fact the he and the other chaplains actually blessed the Portland abortion clinic: ”Recently our chaplains hosted a blessing of the Planned Parenthood health center here in Portland” adding, “We believe in its mission and applaud its life-affirming values. As we said during the blessing, ‘We thank God for Planned Parenthood and for the amazing work you do, day in and day out, with passion, courage, wisdom and grace.’”
“We won’t allow it,” the Soros-funded organization wrote in a post announcing the protests. “That’s why we’re preparing to hold emergency ‘Nobody Is Above the Law’ rallies around the country, in the event they are needed—800+ of them and counting, in every state, with 300,000 RSVPs to date!”
‘Nobody Is Above the Law’ – these are the same people who voted for Hillary.
Because the idea of several sexes, which has no basis in science, is somehow better for students who should only be learning actual subjects:
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says an alternative sex education curriculum being crafted by Catholic school officials will never be taught if it arrives as previously advertised.
In an interview with The Canadian Press, Notley says the health and well-being of students comes first.
“Nowhere do the rights of religious freedom extend to that person’s right to somehow attack or hurt others — and that’s what’s happening here,” Notley said Tuesday. “We will not use public dollars to have sexual health programs that deny science, that deny evidence, and that deny human rights.
What a silly b!#ch.
The fascism delusion
To see how unhinged the fear of fascism has become, look no further than the 40,000-strong counter-protest against the far right in Boston on Saturday. In their thousands, placard-ready, primed for a fight, so-called progressives showed up to face down white supremacy and America’s resurgent Hitlerism that we’ve heard so much about since the Charlottesville disturbances on 12 August. They ‘turned out against white supremacy’, said Vice. But there were no white supremacists. Far less fascists. The Nazis who stalk the nightmares of ostensibly liberal columnists and leftists in search of a mission were not there, or anywhere. As one counter-protester asked a Boston Globe reporter: ‘Excuse me, where are the white supremacists?’
Both movements started on college campuses, with students who wanted to re-make history according to their own ideology.
I’ve been avoiding the news lately because it pains me to see my beloved country so divided, with people so bitterly angry at each other. All the shouting, violence, and destruction of historical monuments have only brought up a feeling of déjà vu.
America is clearly undergoing a Cultural Revolution that is eerily similar to Mao’s Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution which took place in China in the 1960s. Maybe Karl Marx was right after all when he declared that “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.”
If there is anything that characterizes the rhetoric and the ideology of the far left, it is a pathological obsession with race and racism, and an almost reflexive tendency to accuse people on the right of racist beliefs and motivations. Everything from opposition to Obamacare, to reading Shakespeare, to waving the American flag – anything and everything can be, and frequently is, diagnosed as “racism” by the inventive and cynical minds on the left.
When a neo-Nazi psychopath plowed his car into a crowd of Leftist protesters in Charlottesville, the Left saw a golden opportunity to use the moment as its Reichstag Fire, and indulge its increasingly obvious authoritarian tendencies. But when they came after Jihad Watch, they overreached.
