Would it have happened to a Muslim?

Well, as it happened, it happened in the ACT, that fiefdom of Green-Labor political power where the deluded are led by the manipulative. A Christian teenager, Madeline, is sacked from her job with Capital Kids Parties, for asserting on her filter Facebook that ‘It’s OK to say No’.

Madeline’s employer Madlin Sims, in a virtue-signalling (Canberrans are world class at this) message, told her young employee ‘Advertising your desire to vote no for SSM is, in my eyes, hate speech.

Police investigate online abuse against charity for transgender children

Nope. No mental illness here.

Police in West Yorkshire are investigating after the UK’s largest charity supporting transgender children received a stream of abusive messages online.

Mermaids UK reported a sharp rise in abusive and threatening comments on social media, saying it had been forced to block 20 people a day on Twitter.

The charity, which supports transgender children and their families, said it had been falsely accused of “enticing” children by attending recent Pride UK events.

Remember when the police used to arrest criminals?

Transgender ‘x’ passports available to Canadians Aug. 31

OTTAWA — Starting Aug. 31, transgender Canadians can indicate on their passports that they don’t identify as either male or female.

It’s the latest step in the federal government’s plan to eventually allow individuals to identify their sex as ‘x’ — that is, unspecified — on passports and other government-issued documents that typically allow people to tick only “m” or “f.”

Charlottesville, Race, and Republican Virtue-Signaling: Why Trump’s condemnation of “all sides” was scorned.

The blood on the ground in Charlottesville hadn’t dried before the race industry was fulminating full blast, and anxious Republicans were furiously virtue-signaling. Once more we see the toxic wages of our incoherent and politicized racial discourse.

Trump’s general condemnations of the white supremacists and their rally at which a woman was run-over and killed by a loser with a Hitler fetish was insufficient for both sides. Republicans and progressives alike demanded that he call out by name the various fringe-groups that organized the rally. All were outbidding one another to display their righteous indignation and complete freedom from the slightest taint of racism. Ted Cruz’s statement is typical: “The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred that they propagate.” It doesn’t take much bravery to make a statement so obviously true and widely approved outside a tiny fringe movement.

Lawrence Solomon: How Tesla’s Elon Musk became the master of fake business

Elon Musk – Corporate Welfare Queen

The fastest-growing industries over the last two decades have been fake industries, those that thrive despite having few customers willing to buy their products except at fire-sale prices. The fake industries all have the same angel investors — governments — and the same promoter touting their wares — again governments. These fake industries, the brainchild of subsidy entrepreneurs, also tend to be dazzlers, the better to wow their politician backers and the stock market speculators betting on cash flows of government subsidies.

Today’s fake-industry leader is Tesla, the electric car developed by subsidy entrepreneur Elon Musk, who also heads SolarCity and SpaceX, other government darlings.

Chappelle Tells Yet Another Transgender Joke. The Response Is INSANE

The comedian’s first set opened with Trump’s recent proposal to ban transgender individuals from serving in the military. Chappelle said he didn’t even realize there were transgender people in the armed forces.

“Sounds like a secret weapon to me,” said Chappelle, according to Vulture’s Jesse David Fox, who watched the show. “If I was in ISIS in the trenches fighting against the United States and all of a sudden I see a man with a beard and big D-cups titties just rushing my foxhole and shit, I’d be horrified.”

Facebook worker living in garage to Zuckerberg: challenges are right outside your door

Mark Zuckerberg’s travels throughout the United States to fulfill his 2017 “personal challenge” to “learn about people’s hopes and challenges” have seen him drive a tractor, meet recovering heroin addicts, don a hard hat and speak out against the staggering wealth inequality that his $68.5bn fortune so clearly represents.

But to Nicole, a worker in one of Facebook’s cafeterias, they have also raised an important question: “Is he going to come here?”

“Here” is just a few miles from Zuckerberg’s five-house compound in Palo Alto and mere blocks from Facebook’s sprawling Menlo Park headquarters. Here, on a quiet street of modest bungalows, Nicole and her husband Victor, who also works at a Facebook cafeteria, live in a two-car garage with their children, aged nine, eight and four.

UW-Green Bay offers LGBTQ certification to stem student exodus

The University of Wisconsin, Green Bay has created a “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Students Certificate Program” in hopes of stemming an outflux of LGBTQ students.

According to an announcement on the school’s website Wednesday, the school has experienced an exodus of students upset by “the lack of LGBTQ+ focused courses or the opportunity to earn a certificate,” even though the university has a favorable Campus Pride Index rating and was named one of the “50 Best Colleges for LGBTQ Students” this year by College Choice.

It’s not the LGBTQXYZ leaving. It’s the normies.

“Controversial” (to the Star), U of T professor making nearly $50,000 a month through crowdfunding

A controversial University of Toronto psychology professor is making nearly $50,000 per month through crowdfunding, from a base of supporters that was ignited in large part by the professor’s anti-political correctness views.

Prof. Jordan Peterson, who made headlines last fall when he publicly refused to use gender neutral pronouns, has been using the fundraising platform Patreon since last March to subsidize costs associated with filming and uploading videos of his lectures to YouTube.

“Controversial” to the Star means anyone not willing to bow down to the PC Insanity of “Tranny Speak”

Ignoring the Signs in Alexandria: Baseball, Bullets, and Bloodshed

James “Tommy” Hodgkinson must not have seen the signs. They were hard to miss in the Alexandria, Virginia, neighborhood known as Del Ray where he gunned down Republicans playing baseball.

“Practice Kindness” yard signs are ubiquitous in Del Ray.

If he did see the signs, Hodgkinson must not have taken them very seriously.

7 Virtue-Signaling Celebrities Silent on Massacre of Coptic Christians

Left-wingers insist that they are the champions of minorities, yet one oppressed group always seems conspicuously absent from their social media virtue-signalling — Christian minorities in the Muslim world, like the estimated 26 Coptic Christians who were massacred by a Muslim gunman in Egypt earlier today.

Normally, any allegation of mistreatment of a minority, even those of dubious provenance like 2015’s “Clock Boy” incident, will be met with an instant wave of reflexive left-wing virtue signalling from celebrities on social media.

Apparently, everything is transphobic.

Remember the old song by Lou Reed called “Take a Walk on the Wild Side?” Well, a Canadian student group threw a party that was supposed to evoke the 1970s and 1980s. This song was on the playlist and — you guessed it! — people got offended. In their Facebook mea culpa, they apologized for their egregious mistake.

NB – it appears the University of Guelph Central Student Association has deleted the apology, isn’t that Double Plus Transphobic Bad?

When Will Useless Foreign Aid Spending Just End?

The end of the Second World War saw a Europe truly devastated, prostrate; in some cities the number of buildings with an undamaged roof could be counted in the fingers of one’s hand, with winter aggravating survival of civilians. George Marshall’s idea of a massive infusion of American capital to Europe energized the continent in 1948. It is no exaggeration that it saved millions of lives and reconstructed entire countries. Such was the pace of rebuilding Germany and such was the shortage of manpower after the war that “temporary guest workers” from Turkey began arriving (the “temporary” guests became permanent and today are a cancer in German society). The Germans call it “the German miracle,” as if the rebirth came about in isolation, like Venus rising from the sea. Gratitude from those countries towards the United States proved ephemeral.
