Apple VP Of Diversity Apologizes For Suggesting Diversity Of Thought Is Important

Apple’s Denise Young Smith, the newly minted Vice President of Diversity at the tech giant, has caused outrage in the industry over comments she made in defense of diversity of thought.

Silicon Valley has been in an all-out push to bring in more women and minorities, so when Smith said, “I focus on everyone. Diversity is the human experience,” without focusing specifically on race or gender, liberal publications criticized her.

Smith ultimately apologized for the sentiment.

Social Justice Activism Has Become Just Another Fashion Accessory

Pop activism is just a giant Che Guevara T-shirt draped atop the collective bosom of a generation of vapid attention-junkies.

Recently it was super trendy to do a volunteer trip in a poor country and follow it with a Facebook picture of oneself holding a helpless brown child. This sort of flattering altruism raised many eyebrows, and for obvious reasons: If your actions are truly about helping the less-fortunate, why flaunt it?

Although I’m not doubting the sincerity of many who do such volunteer trips, you don’t need to be a psychoanalyst to recognize that “holding the helpless African child” is often a form of self-promotion. Even our friends on the Left have found ways to interpret such photogenic philanthropy as self-serving.

Why It’s Cruel And Stupid To Politicize Marriage And Hard Work As ‘Racism’

These law-school faculty prove the Left has become so Puritanical and rigid that any positive reflection on the post-war period is immediately ‘racist.’ This isn’t history—it’s religion.

Thirty-three professors at the University of Pennsylvania’s Law School have lost their minds in response to their colleague Amy Wax, who published a piece stating something apparently atrocious: Culture matters for human flourishing.

In response to this simple claim, the university erupted in petitionscondemnation, and a spluttering of essays that accomplish very little apart from signaling leftward piety (hereherehere, and here). These precious articles represent the academy’s bad-faith efforts to traduce one of few un-silent conservatives on campus, symptomatic of the intellectual dilapidation in the modern academy.

In Chicago, a Las Vegas Every Month

There were 59 murders in Chicago in September, the city where black lives don’t seem to matter to liberals and gun control zealots. The horrible death toll in the Las Vegas massacre is just a normal month in the gun control and murder capital of America. The Democratic caucus in Congress that seizes on Las Vegas as another crisis too terrible to waste in their pursuit of gun control says nothing about the Chicago carnage, for which nary an NFL millionaire takes a knee while whining about social justice…

How Leftism Can Ruin a Once-Proud School District

Edina is one of the Twin Cities’ wealthiest suburbs. For decades, its public schools have been viewed as among the nation’s finest. But no longer: a leftist political agenda now dominates the Edina school system, and quality of instruction has slipped badly. Edina is not alone. What has happened there is going on in public schools across the country. Edina’s experience should be a warning to all of us.

Something is very wrong.

Leftist leaders’ hypocritical policies endanger their own people

From Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s arms deals to the Dyke March to unfettered migration in Europe, leftist politicians continually harm women and the LGBT community.

“…Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, a man who prides himself on unmistakeable support for Canada’s LGBT community, has most recently aligned himself with one of the world’s single greatest threats to the community: Saudi Arabia. The prime minister enacted a $15 billion arms trade with the Western Asian sovereign state.

The arms deal between the Canadian government and the blatant human rights abuser that is Saudi Arabia will not involve sending shipments of instructions on how to treat men and women with equal respect under the law. Instead, it shall provide armored fighting vehicles to a nation that has used said vehicles directly against civilians.

By signing this deal, Trudeau, a man who basks in every opportunity to wear rainbow socks and reap political gain by flaunting his pro-LGBT views, effectively empowered a country whose laws actively punish acts of homosexuality and cross dressing with execution, imprisonment, chemical castration, fines, and flogging.

Perhaps he’s latched onto a piece of the playbook from the leaders of Sweden, Germany, and Britain.

These countries have endlessly claimed to protect at risk groups such as the LGBT community while importing millions of migrants who are hell bent on following and establishing Sharia Law, an ideology whose main premise revolves around the subjugation of women and the “illegality of homosexuality.”

Biology prof Bret Weinstein’s persecutors face sanctions from Evergreen State College

You know, that non-PC nerd who was warned that it wasn’t safe for him to go back to teach and eventually settled for $500k. From Eric Owens at Daily Caller:

School officials at the 4,000-student school received approximately 120 incident reports involving 180 students during the days-long series of protests, reports The Olympian, the main newspaper in the town surrounding Evergreen State.

“Of those 180 students, approximately 80 were found responsible for their actions,” Evergreen State spokeswoman Sandra Kaiser told The Olympian. “They received sanctions ranging from formal warnings, community service and probation, to suspension.”

Read the rest of the story, it gets crazier. Then:

Last month, school officials announced that Evergreen State is now facing a $2.1 million budget shortfall as well as a five percent plunge in enrollment. More.

The secret of accountable authority is to know when to use it — for example, when publicly funded universities become dominated by a mission to suppress ideas.

Note this curious detail: “An unidentified person who does not attend Evergreen State was also “subsequently arrested and permanently barred from campus,” Evergreen State spokesman Zach Powers told The Olympian.” Michael Shermer also mentioned at Scientific American that the 2016 prof assault case at Middlebury featured off-campus thugs:

… Editor’s Note (8/18/17): This sentence was edited after the print article was posted online. The original stated that students at Middlebury College “physically attacked” Charles Murray and his campus host, Allison Stanger. In fact, a police investigation determined that it appears several participants in the demonstration against Murray came from outside the campus community and that those wearing masks used “tactics that indicated training in obstruction and intimidation.” Although the attackers were never identified, and thus the police were unable to press charges, Middlebury maintains that the masked assailants were not students but outside agitators.

Free advice for U adminbots: If you tolerate thugs on campus, no surprise, you will attract more vicious and more experienced thugs from the back alleys. If you can’t figure that out, quit soon so we can replace you with people who can. It isn’t hard math, after all.

And while we are here, instead of focusing on punishing the students, try cutting off the problem at the source by going after the profs who lead students to believe that thuggery is freedom. Why should those profs retire in comfort while the students, acting in good faith, have become unemployable menaces, convinced that everyone else is to blame?

Bad sex

Australian universities appear to have completely capitulated to the virulently anti-male propaganda of radical feminists. Feminists increasingly control what is taught in our faculty departments, even influencing faculty recruitment, where preference is given to women and minority groups. Faculties are presently lowering academic standards in hiring in order to be politically correct. This necessarily lowers the quality of education offered to students and the standards of scholarly publication. The point is not merely that white males have been subject to systematic discrimination in higher education, though that is clearly unacceptable. Free speech is also under serious threat at Australian universities. ‘Speech codes’ and ‘sensitivity training’ severely limit what can be said on campus. And fines are imposed on many campuses for causing ‘offence’.

Morality, Anti-Morality, and the Left-Wing Great Hate-Hustle

The fashionable watchword this political season is morality. Left-wing voices, especially, are heard providing moral instruction. Here a moral, there a moral, everywhere the left is moral. In listening closely to the subject matter of left-wing moral discourse, one notices only political issues – not real problems of everyday life – and one mental sin: hate.

‘Fake news’: the far left’s favourite new excuse

Admirers of violence and lies must go carefully. As true cowards they must leave themselves an escape hatch in case they are forced to retreat. They never quite commit to the suppression of rights, the rigged elections, the secret policemen and the torture chambers. Instead they tell us we are not hearing the full story, and switch the argument.

The real problem is not the oppressive state and its suffering citizens, they say. The problem is the fake media. Not media faked by government propagandists and controlled by censors, not countries where every TV station and mass circulation newspaper must follow the party line, but the free media in their own country.
