Centennial College says it will start providing free menstrual products, converting dispensers in its women’s restrooms so the machines no longer require payment.

The college says its next step will be to install complimentary dispensers in every restroom, regardless of gender.

Court Rules Illegal Aliens Can Sue over “Discriminatory Employment Policy” Requiring Green Cards

For the second time in a few years, a federal court has ruled that illegal immigrants can sue American employers that refuse to hire them because they require workers to be U.S. citizens or legal residents (green card holders). The latest blow to the rule of law was delivered by an Obama-appointed federal judge in south Florida, who handed a powerful open-borders group a huge victory in a case accusing a major U.S. company of discriminating against an illegal immigrant.

L.A. County wants to help build guest houses in backyards — for homeless people

“Not in my backyard” protests helped block homeless housing in Temple City, delayed it in Boyle Heights and, last month, killed Orange County’s plan to relocate homeless people to shelters.

Now, Los Angeles officials want to turn NIMBYism on its head — by paying property owners to put houses for homeless people in their backyards.

Unhousebroken refugees next.

How Post-Modern Progressives Are Trying to Rewrite History

Since the election of Barack Obama, an admitted progressive, there are misconceptions of the origins, values, and strands of progressivism. Who were the original progressives? Where did their ideas come from? What motivated their actions? What goals for society and government did they have? What social doctrines influenced their convergence? Is past progressive ideology relative to our current progressivism? The past and present Progressive Eras are as dissimilar as heaven is to hell.

Sweden’s State Curriculum Forces Preschoolers to Act Like the Opposite Gender

Sweden is on a mission to eliminate gender. It begins as early as preschool. According to the state curriculum, “stereotyped gender roles” are a “limitation” that children must be freed from. The New York Times reports that Swedish preschools urge their teachers and principals to “embrace their role as social engineers, requiring them to ‘counteract traditional gender roles and gender patterns.’” If Sweden does its job right, its children will grow into adults who lump gender in with unicorns, fairies, monsters, and the bogeyman. The only problem is, unlike unicorns, gender really does exist.

Student condemns campus ‘rooted in a Northeastern white understanding of self’

An outdoor expedition that’s part of Bates College’s freshman orientation, and the student group that runs it, recently came under fire from one student critic who accused them of perpetuating “white privilege” and “prehistoric policies regarding gender.”

Justin Geddes, the layout editor of the The Bates Student, authored a piece in which he condemned the annual AESOP experience, or the Annual Entering Student Outdoor Program, and the group that runs it, the Outing Club.

New York Times Celebrates Trump Hater Who Blockaded News From His Mind

He swore that he would avoid learning about anything that happened to America after Nov. 8, 2016.

“It was draconian and complete,” he said. “It’s not like I wanted to just steer away from Trump or shift the conversation. It was like I was a vampire and any photon of Trump would turn me to dust.”

The Psychology of Progressive Hostility

Recently, I arrived at a moment of introspection about a curious aspect of my own behavior. When I disagree with a conservative friend or colleague on some political issue, I have no fear of speaking my mind. I talk, they listen, they respond, I talk some more, and at the end of it we get along just as we always have. But I’ve discovered that when a progressive friend says something with which I disagree or that I know to be incorrect, I’m hesitant to point it out. This hesitancy is a consequence of the different treatment one tends to receive from those on the Right and Left when expressing a difference of opinion. I am not, as it turns out, the only one who has noticed this.

Corporate America and the Left

A distinguished social economist of my acquaintance, Carl Horowitz, produced a penetrating essay, which is available in the latest issue of Social Contract, on “The Alliance of Corporate Capitalism with Political Radicalism.”  Carl demonstrates that black nationalists, revolutionary socialists, and off-the-wall feminists have loyal benefactors among the corporate boards of high-tech enterprises and in older corporations like Pepsi-Cola and Citibank.  Carl’s illustrations are vivid and shocking, and his well constructed speech leads me to raise two questions occasioned by his evidence.

When the Pentagon posted some war porn on Twitter it should have been prepared for a major backlash, especially when using the nickname ‘Angel of Death,’ which formerly belonged to infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele.

Seattle author mistakes Norwegian flag for Confederate flag, alerts local newspaper

When a New York Times bestselling author noticed a blue-and-red flag flying near her home, she tipped off the local newspaper to report a “Confederate flag.” But there was just one little problem – it was a Norwegian flag.

The tip-off to the Seattle Times came from true-crime author Rebecca Morris. “Hi. Suddenly there is a Confederate flag flying in front of a house in my Greenwood neighborhood. It is at the north-east corner of 92nd and Palatine, just a block west of 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. I would love to know what this ‘means’… but of course don’t want to knock on their door. Maybe others in the area are flying the flag? Maybe it’s a story? Thank you.”
